Robeson, educator Mary McLeod Bethune and even the immortal Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have been known to make their way to the bus-stop, train depot and airports of our city. Tampa felt comfortable and honored when,. one of the most important, if not most controversial Black minister's of the 21st century visited Tampa and shared what was on his mind. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, pf Chicago, Illinois, who once boasted President-Elect Barack Obama as a member of his congregation and continues to call him a close friend, took the pulpit of Tampa's Bible-Based Church. of Temple Terrace. Pastored by Rev. Earl Mason, who himself is no stranger to social Gospel and the art of "Hoopology." BibleBased resonated 'from the words of a man Jeremiah Wright-who was as much a child of God as he was a man of America, weaving tales of his Philadelphia, Pennsylvania childhood into lessons of wisdom and salvation that continuously brought onlookers to their feet. From Sunday through Wednesday, Wright brought fire, lightning and levity to the hundreds who packed the church.

Some facts about the Great Depression include the number of years that it lasted as well as its effect on the world at large. The Great Depression began at the end of 1929 and continued until the early 1940s. In its wake, the stock market crashed, banks faile -d, and long-stand ing businesses folded. People lost their jobs as unemployment reached an all-time high they lost their homes, their savi ngs and "so up lines" became the norm. People who normally wouldn't accept charity found that charity was the only method of survival. At its worst point, millions of people were unemploy ed. President Frankiili Delano Roosevelt was elected as president in 1932, during what was probably the worst of the Depression. He introduced several programs that became known as "The New Deal." Those programs created a role for government in the area of social services and created government assistance on a national level. Under his guidance, pro jects such as road construc tion, bridges, and dams came into existence that provided work for thousands of Americans. President Roosevelt's plan was to provide relief, recovery and reform for the American people. President Roosevelt. inherited the country at its worst. aut, his programs are credited with helping the country's recovery by providing a greater role of the federal government. President Roosevelt went on to become the first president to be elected by the :fQUt consecutive terms: H:is death on April J2, :1945. ended his fourth term :. Now, we come to the situatibn that President-Elect ''Barack Obama will face as the 44th President of the United States. While arguably, the condition of the country is not as bad as the Great Depression, it is a close rival. Even before being sworn into office, President-Elect Obama is already facing fail ing banks, established busi nesses filing bankruptcy and closing their doors, the of residential homes the loss of savings, and high unemploy ment. The difference i -s, President-Elect Oban,..a must turn the economy in just 8 years. After President Roosevelt died, the 22nd 'Amendm@t passed which prohibits any person from being elected : as president more than twice Paul laurence Dunbllr:Proleuue. ...... '"f .. as! Lias!

If y ou h a ven't, y ou h a ve missed one of the biggest sno w jobs on earth. Believe me these things are inspiring promising and in most cases a pack of lies You hear, see and read thing s like I will work for you. I will be both your voic e arid your representation. I will fight for you. I will alwa y s tell you the truth and I will have an open door policy In most cases, the onl y thing that is true is the open door policy. Politicians or elected offi cials always have the door to their. _offices open but the average citizens are never able to see their elected representative. That is unless you a meeting or a big social event. When they say they will be your voice that is exactly what t4ey will be. They will speak for you without talking to y ou. In reality, they become the voice for lobby ists and big campaign contributqrs. What has always amazed me about becoming an elected official is that as soon as the final Vote it counted, they immediately join the ranks of the most. brilliant people in the world The y know everything. Very few people can tell them any thing The biggest victims of this kind of representation are Black people. Once we elect a Black, only term limits c a n get that person out of office Blacks will not vote an ineffective ed official out of office Far too many of our Black elected officials spend their time promoting themselves, rather than the people they are suppose to represent. This is why there is no real unity among Black elected officials on i ssues that affect Black people. It is also a major why Black citizens and Black communities are always get ting the short end of the stick. The Black community has to adopt the position that all elected officials must be held accountable, regardless to who they are. No elected official should be .. 'allowed to get our vote and then disappear until they need our vote again. We should never vote for candidates that don't really give sound to our voice or repre sent our interest. Black people, we must care : We need to keep track of what our elected officials do to make life better for us If they aren t doing the things we need them to do, then we ., must be bold enough to vote rthem out of office and elect 0 someone who will truly be ::tl our voice and work for us We can no longer allow any en elected official to build their m resume and satisfy their egos at our expense. For too long z this has been the case We m must also learn to be sup-r;-IXI 1 portive of good elected offi c cials Folks, elected officials rrand politics control our lives. m Let's pla y the game and do it ::f right. Z "0 c lXI r-(i) % m c m < m :::z:l -< -1 1 Think It's Time To Turn The Corner c m en c lot of people proba bly aren't as obser. : vant as I am, but I tend to notice things others ignore. What I've noticed lately is more and more peo. ple getting comfortable with being unemployed It appears that an alternative source of income becomes available, some p eople lose interest in find. ing a job The fact that their numbers are growing is the sign of bad things coming in the future. If there was one thing I learne<:) during my employ ment with the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, it's that some peo ple are naive when it comes to public assistance. They think it s here to stay and they have a right to receive it for the rest of their lives. When Florida Legislators decided to change the welfare system, it came as a shock to many who just weren't prepa red. For others, they simply. found another way to get a check every month without earning it. Now that we're entering a new era with strong histori cal significance, the expectations must change. No longer can any of us expect to get something for nothing. The state of the economy is clear evidence of a need for all of us to step back and re:view our lives. We all have to radical changes In our lifestyles and sacrifice things we've grown attached to. It' s time for all of us to loo.k deeper for opportunities and create them. It' s time to grow instead of standing in one place and living the same life over and over with the same results. There are some facets of life that will never go away There will always be crime, drugs and covert racism In spite of those things ; we ve got to strive to rise up and make things happen The old excuses just don t )> z c work anymore. No one has time to feel sorry for you or ., anyone else, because they :::z:l are struggling themselves. 6 If there ever was a time for African Americans worldwide to turn the corner, it's now. We have our first African American president, and we must do whatever we can to support him and represent him with Class and dignjty ; : Keep in mind that as race, we all are still perceived by the actions of a few ; In other words; President-elect Barack Obama will constantly be put on. trial for the behavior of African Americans That means none of us should expect special favors because we have a Black president. It doesn't work that way. Let s turn the corner and look ahea d to not just our but the future of our children.

"My brother. and t we re drawn closer through a -Vision of truth. We knew the world was full of Satan. Our artwork was designed to reveal truth. Our .slogan at the time was, "Moses Hotisf: Is Free For All The World To See." That's the way we wanted it, and the only way we could do that was with a museum: That's the only place we could present God's work for free." With the recent, death of his brother, This is a collection of bone art created by Taft. Ric:liardson, jr. Harold is trying to continue that legacy and is seeking a place to not just display their art, but to teach art and agriculture, "Right now, all of the artwork is in storage. It will stay there until a permanent place can be fou' nd to display We thought about looking for a place in the Sulphur Springs area : When we were in East Tampa, we warited to work with the kids from College Hill and Ponce De Leon. When they tore the buildings down, that set our plans back because the kids were gone."

National Woman Plans To Sue Hospital, savs Knife was Len In Head JACKSONVILLE --A Jac ksonvill e woman plans to sue Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center after she said part of a knife was left behind in her head. Three years after a Jacksonville woman was stabbe d twice in the head, a portion of the blade remains near her jaw. A good look at an X-ray of Edith McQueen's head reveals an object next to her jaw bone. That object, according to the woman' s attorney, is a piece of a knife from an attack that took place more than three years ago "Somehow, someway, the knife was left in her head. She presented to the emergency room for treatment from th e wounds to the head, and they were simply stitched up and Mrs. McQueen was sent home," said McQueen's attorney, Chad Roberts.

Sports Phil IV DA Unable To MARVIN HARRISON PHILADELPHIA --A gun owned by Indianapolis Colts star Marvin Harrison was used in an April shooting, but investigators still can't determine who pulled the trigger, the city's chief prosecutor said Tuesday. Five bullet casings found at the North Philadelphia shooting scene came from Harrison's weapon, but investigators have conflict !ng witness accounts of who fired it, Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham said. -No cliarges have been filed the April 29 shooting and the investigation remains open "It's not enough to say that a gun fired a bullet," Abraham said. "I'm not prepared to say who fired the gun." She added that she thinks she knows who the gunman was, but does not have the evidence to prove it. The victim has sued Harrison and law enforcement will be keeping tabs on that proceeding to see if any new evidence emerges that could help the criminal investigation, Abraham said. Harrison's attorney, Jerome Brown, declined to comment Tuesday. The receiver's agent, Tom Condon, said he hadn't talkeq to his client about the matt.er in some time, but remained confident Harrison had done nothing wrong. "Marvin asserted that he hadn't done anything and that he was not involved," Condon said "I was confident that Marvin wasn't involved." Colts president Bill Polian lauded Abraham's decision not to file charges at this time.
