I just want to thank my church family, my friends, and everyone who took a role in helping during this very difficult time. So many people have been so wonderful to me and I just want to thank them," Mrs. Mary Jones Bynes said. Mrs. Jones Bynes, 73, formerly of 2905 E. Chipco, is trying to reassemble her life after a devastating fire on the morning of December sth. Mr. Willie (Bubba) Bynes, 69, her husband, and her only granddaughter, 26-year-old Ms. LaToya Williams, died as a result of injuries sustained in the blaze. "God woke me up that morning," Mrs. Jones Bynes said. 'rhe fire started around 6:30 a.m., in the 3 bedroom, 2 bath concrete block home Efforts to rescue the family were hampered by burglar bars that were not equipped with emergency releases. The fire destroyed the home, causing more than $10o,ooo Mrs. Mary Jones Bynes, center, is shown with two of three children, daughter, Kim Johnsori and son, Reginald Jones. Mrs. Jones Bynes lost all of her possessions last month in a house fire that claimed the lives of her husband and only in damages. Julius Henderson, a neighbor, said he was asleep when he heard his father and sister screaming that the home was on fire. Henderson, along with two police officers, attempted to pry the front door open, but was unsuccessful. Ms. Williams was unconscious when removed from the home. Both she and Mr. Bynes were transported to Tampa General Hospital. Mrs. Bynes Jones was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. Ms. Williams died later that Monday night and Mr. Bynes died two days later. Mrs. Jones Bynes said Single Mother savs Bad Decisions Didn't Stop Her From Succeeding BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer As a single moher of four girls, Bridgette Welch understood her responsibili ties. She knew she couldn't be selective about the kind of job she wanted, but still wanted to establish a career. "I've done some things that would normally have wrecked anyone else's chances of find ing a good job. I've had to deal with issues concerning my daughters, vjolent neighbors, and my own siblings. "I just knew I had to stay foeused and put something in place that would guarantee I would be able to take care of my family." Ms. Welch took an account ing course at Erwin Tech, and in 2004 contacted a temporary service to assist her with find ing employment. "They sent me to a company that manufactures lamp parts. I started out as a temporary worker' and moved up to supervisor, and later to assistant warehouse manager trainee. I've sat in on board meetings with the company's president and vice-president and they've sent me on trips to California and Texas." Last year, the company BRIDGETI'E WELCH offered Ms. Welch a chance to relocate to their Texas plant, all expenses paid. "They were going to pay the travel expenses for me and my family, find us a house, and pay to have my personal items moved there. It sounded like a dream come true. "What I hadn't thought about was the impact it would have on up rooting my daughtets. I never really sat down with them asked how they felt abouUhe move." Welch said she knew this was going to be a big deci sion for her. "I wanted to create stability for my family so I decided to pass on the opportunity to move to Texas. I knew that meant I wouldn't' be able to keep my job here anymore, but I feel it was the right thing to do." Ms. Welch said the economy has had an affect one everyone, and she hasn't been immune I think in spite of everything, I've managed quite well. Because of the nature of the company I worked for, the economy didn' t really have a bad impact on them. "Now, after four years, 111 be moving on to another career and see what God has planned for me I just want the other single mothers out there to know that although they may have made mistak e s along the way don't let that stop them from making a career for them selves and their children The children are more important than anything Ms. Welch said an opportu nity to stay with the company in a lower position was offered to her, but she passed. "I just think right now, it would be in my best interest to just move on." she remained at St. Joseph's Hospital for 12 days, and was not able to attend the double funeral. She suffered burns to her face and hands Her voice was damaged by the smoke inhalation. She still has trouble talking. Mrs. Jones Bynes, the mother of a daughter and 2 sons said it was her dream home and the family had built it 40 years ago She remembers how her husband enjoyed working in the yard. We loved our yard, front a nd back and my husband lived in th a t yard, he kept it beautiful. But, this was just God s way." After being released from the hospital, Mrs. Jones Bynes is living in East Tampa on N 19th Street in a relative's home with her old est son, Reginald Jones. Her daughter, Ms. Kim Johnson, lives in Houston, Texas, but will be returning often to help with the care of her mother. Her other son, Robert, also lives in Houston He is the father of LaToya.

For the first time in history, the 44th President of the United States will be of African ancestry A mere three years ago, with the exception of his cir cles in Hawaii and lllinois, few people knew much about this young Senator Barack Hussein Obama. But, on this day, history is being made. However, PresidentElect Obama will be referred to simply as President Obama on this afternoon. He ran a good rac e, fought a good fight and his r e ward was victory Now, h e must set about the ta s k of compl e ting a mi ssion that is seemingly impos sible --saving this country from itself. He must try to find ways to increase employment, which will in turn ward off foreclosure and try to make life good again for Americans At the same time, he must keep a watchful eye on foreign affairs because the battles of war continue to rage on. He is facing an awesome responsibility. And, I'm sure he will ask himself in the days ahead if it's really worth it But then he will remember that he accepted this position because he knew he could make changes for the better. He knew he had ideas that would draw people together, instead of pushing the m further apart He knew that his campaign slogan of 'Yes, We Can' was not a catchy phase .. but that it could be accom plished simply by people setting aside their differences and working together. Of cours_ e, his detractors will watch every move he makes, hoping that he will fail. He will make some mistakes --that goes without saying. After all, he is only a man. But, we must remember that he is a man following in the footsteps of others before him. The difference is, he is tbe first man of African descent taking the oath of office.

Other supporters of trans porting freed Blacks formed the American Colonization Society (ACS). The organiza tion's founders included Francis Scott Key (composer of the Star Spangled Banner), Bushrod WAsh1ngton {U: s. Supreme Court Justice), and William Thornton (architeet of the U. S. Capito1 building). All of them o wned slaves. Believing slavery was unsustainable and should eventually end .. _and integrating slaves into the American society was unthinkable, the ACS encouraged slave-owners to offer_ freedom to their slaves on the condition that those freed Blacks accepting the ofre' r would move to Liberia at the society's expense: Interestingly enough, ACS membership included slaveBilek ilbblitibnists: as well' as well-zneanilig whites. Support of the trans. portation of Blacks to Liberia was driven by a revolt led by Nat Turner, which fueled Southerners' fear of other organized revolts by freed Blacks. Additionally, white North erners worried that free Black workers would compete with them for jobs. Many whites opposed slavery, but did not support integration.

And there I was, swimming in a swarm of disoriented, but nevertheless. excited faces, each one of us trying to establish his bearings, in that great swirl of history, knowing full-well that the day we witnessed would be the source of countless tales of adventure for our grandchildren and perhaps even our great grandchildren. That was my recollection of the Million Man March. And today, reminds me of that day! And where will you have been, on January 20, 2009, three years before the Mayan calendar says the world will come to a screeching halt, two years before Arctic and_Antarctic spill .out-completely into the Atlantic and Pacific oceans; and one year before America's fir:st Blac]c president celebrates. his first year in office?

Will you keep that furlined leather coat you wore to the inauguration ... the coat you thought would keep you warm, but only seemed to insulate a freezing day that felt like it was 10 degrees below zero? Will you laugh to your grandchildren and try to explain to them how your ears ached from the cold and how you kept up a running race with the people next to you, over seating space that was virtually inaccessible? And what about Barack Obama's speech? Will its words hav"e thrilled much like Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address thrilled the ears and spirits of Civil War onlook-. r:. ers? Or will Obama's speech have reminded you of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's speech, when he said to a capacity crowd, "All we have to fear is fear itself?" Either that or will Obama's words rekindle the fire you felt when a youthful Jack Kennedy proclaimed ; "Ask not what your country can do for YOU, but what YOU can do for your COUN TRY?" Maybe, that. Or with teary eyes, will you explain how this new president' s remarks reminded you of another Black man who shouted within ear-shot of the Lincoln Memorial, "I HAVE A DREAM, THIS MORNING?" Perhaps, you would not have heard Barack Obama's speech, at all, being blocks away from the .event. Most likely; the best you will have managed to do is to witness the Inaugural P'arade, with its 90 marching bands and representatives. Or could it be that you will have been among the lucky few to do the "Electric Slide" with the new President and his First Lady, at the official 'Inaugural BalL I see you now, dapped down in your fQrmal best, glittering like a Or maybe, you'll simply sit in front of your television screen, sip dry champagne or strawberry Kooi-Aid, and toast to the genii of His tory And that is what you "ll tell your grandchildren when they ask, "Grandpop ..

It makes you wonder how the reputed greatest country in the world can be in such terrible finan cial condition. The United States economy has become the number one topic in the n ews, and it gets worse ev e ryday The unemploy m ent rate continues to climb, the numb e r of home foreclo sures continues to grow. Businesses continue to fail loans get more and more difficult to get. The nation's debt is getting bigger and bigger. How can that happen in this great nation? Not only that, but people are losing their retirement, their life's savings, and their investments. People are losing their health insurance and canceling their life insuranCe because they ean't pay one and need the money from the other. How did this happen? Did Thi s m orning whe n I pull e d int o th e Servic e S t atio n t o f i ll up, I noticed that th e price of g as o lin e h a d g on e up.

While we were so ob s ervant to honor Rev. Dr. Martin. Luther King, Jr. and his memory, others thought, NHinm this is the perfect time!" While we are so enainored in our excitement of inaugurating President Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America, others ac e d upon not only th e ir impuls es, but their warpe d c onvi ctions to s qu eeze us again. A s if that was not enough to jumps tart us back into r eal ity my eyes c aught a glimp s e anyone see it coming? If so, what was being done to stop this financial disaster? What is even more shocking is that countries we once considered to be poor Third World countries are now big time lenders to the United States How did that happen? The United States was o nce a great manufacturing nation. Today, the auto makers, the last vestige of our manufacturing prowess, is about to go under. The auto makers need federal money in order to survive and we are debating whether or not we should provide the money. Stop at a department store and just survey the number of items that are marked made in some other country besides America Look at the food that was produced outside of our boundaries. We are rapidly becoming a ing nation. Only recently bas America been willing to acknowledge alllbaardl' of the loc a l dail y n e w s paper. It c it e d that President Obama had mad e more th a n 1 ,900 c a mpaign promises In our f a ce s, its headlines tout e d that it s writer(s) vows to keep record of his fulfillment of them So, what's really going on here? In the words of former President Richard "Trieky Dick" Ni"o n tet -me make this perfectly clear, is it because he is different? Or, i s it because the"re are many who believe that because he is different, he will not be effective. Lest we for. get, more than 46-million people did not cast their vote for President Obama. The fact of the matter is unless some folk took an eight-year leave of absence from national and ir\temational politics, how can they "fix" their n e wspaper to c a st doubt.

Group spokesperson, James Ransom, said they were surprised when they read an editorial in the Tampa Tribune on Saturday, December 28th where Mayor Pam Iorio said she would not amend the agreement. "Without a specific amended contract, we are b eing a sked to trust all parties at a time when our trust in promises made in 1999 have been violated, said Ransom. "We do not want to be in this same position ten years from now." Ransom said they will continue to be steadfast in their efforts to do what is right for historic Rogers Park. "We believe it is reasonable to amend the agreement in order to public access to all _and to protect this legacy for generations to come ;"" The next meeting has been tentatively scheduled for Th.ursday, January 22nd at the 34th Street Church Of God. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the public is asked to come The Voice of Our Conununity Itself"' 1 ....... BuJJetin ...... ........... \. ..... 1.' (813) l48-19U

"We are hoping to reopen in August," Rev. Arthur T. Jones, D. Min, Senior Pastor of the church stated. "The economic recession has not only hit Wall Street, but our street as well. The parents' family budget is being squeezed. Where there were double incomes, there is now only one in some instances; adjustable rate mortgages have increased, putting more of a strain on family income," Rev. Jones explained. The church has been the backbone for the school over the past 14 years, but Rev. Jones said when a recession strikes the first casualty is the church. "It's not economically viable to provide for a few parents. You can't listen to your heart over common sense We believe we are doing the right thing now for the children and their parents." The school served Pre K-3 to sth grade students. The school is fully accredited and is housed in a 42,000 square foot facility "It's a matter of economics," Rev.

Local School Decided Against Cell Phone Tower On Campus The principal at a lo ca l middle school announced that the school will not pursue allowing a cell phone tower being built on his campus. In a letter to parents, Michael L. Hoskinson, principal of Coleman Middle School said "After hearing from dozens of peo ple in the past two months, and after carefully reviewing various studies and data, I have decided we will not build a cell phone tower on the Coleman Middle School campus." Hoskinson said he did not believe the tower would pose any danger. But, he felt the issue had become divisive and a distrac tion to the school. He also said he felt that allowing the tower to be constructed on the campus would not be in the best interest of the school. He further said the school has been an A-rated school for nine consecutive years with high-achieving students, supportive par ents, and an excellent staff. The tower would have raised more than $24,0000 per year for the school. The school would have been requir e d to sign a HJ-year lease with the cell phone tow er company, a spokesperson for the school board said. HUD Awards $49 Million In Grants To Help Low-Income Families Get Job Training And Emplovment U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Steve Preston recently announced that public housing agencies in 4H states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Pue rto Rico will receive nearly $49 million to provide low-inconw people with the necessary job training to put them on a path toward self-sufficiency. Five agencies in West Central Florida, including the Housing Authority of the City of Tampa, Housing Authority of the City of Lakeland, Clearwater Housing Authority, Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners and the Pasco County Housing Authority received a total of S.'374,07:J. Funded through HUD's Housing Choice Voucher Fwnily SelF Sufficiency Program (HCV/FSS), the grants allow public housing agencies (PHAs) to work with welfare agencies, schools, business es, and other local partners to develop a comprehensi\c program to help participating individuals develop the skills and experience to enable them to obtain jobs that pay a living wage. "This program has proven its effectiveness in helping families develop the skills that lead to stable employment," said Preston. "Getting a decent job and increasing a person's potential for higher paying employment is the first step to becoming economically independent." PHAs use the funding to hire family self-sufficiency coordina tors to link adults in the Housing Choice Voucher program (for merly Section 8) to local organizations that provide job training, childcare, counseling, transportation and job placement. PHAs can also hire homeownership coordinators to help families get homeownership counseling. Participants in the HCV /FSS program sign a contract that stipulates the head of the household will get a job and the family will no longer receive welfare assistance at the.end of the five-year term. As the family's income rises, a portion of that increased income is deposited in an interest-bearing escrow account. If the family completes its FSS contract, the family receives the escrow funds that it can use for any purpose, including a down payment on a home, paying educational expenses, starting a business or paying back debts. West Central Florida agencies include: Housing Authority of the City of Tampa, $150,111; Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, $59,110; Clearwater Housing Authority, $ 84,289; Housing Authority of the City of Lakeland, $ 48,140; and Pasco County Housing Authority, $32,345 For a complete list of local housing authorities receiving fund ing visit HUD's website. -j --1-J --, ----, -. -, 0-, ,; I 4 ',I z c: )> :::0 -< 0 After hearing the plight of students at the University of South Florida needing financial assis-tance to stay in school, the City of Tampa Black History Committee, Inc.

Entertainment Run-DMC, Metallica lead list Of 2009 Rock Hall RUN-DMC And METALUCA NEW YORK ---Run-DMC once hailed themselves as the Kings of Rock, so it's fitting that the pioneering rappers have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Run-DMC joins the heavy metal band Metallica, guitarist and former Yardbirds member Jeff Beck; soul singer and guitarist Bobby Womack and doo-wop group little Anthony and the Imperials as this year's inductee class. Though Rnn-DMC wasn't among the first rap acts, they were the first to achieve wide. spread mainstream success, and the first to notch a platinum album with 1986's "Raising Hell." The rapping duo of Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels plus their OJ, the late Jam Master Jay were rap's first rock stars. They had hits with songs like "My Adiddas" and "It's Tricky," but had their greatest success when they remade Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" with the rock act for a groundbreaking collaboration In an interview Wednesday, McDaniels called Run-DMC's induction "inconceivable "I'm a rap dude, I'm an MC from Hollis (a neighborhood in New York's borough of Queens), just rockin' the mic, and to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with the Beatles, and :(Bob) Dylan, and the rock 'n' roll gods?

The couple wed in January 2005 after a two-year courtship. The New York natives were married in Atlanta, where they keep a home. Nas' brother, Brave heart member Jungle, served as the best man The pair raised eyebrows on the 2008 Grammy Awards red carpet. The rapper was in the midst of promoting his project, then ti tled N---er and later released as an untitled album, and his wife showed her support by wearing a KELlS And NAS jacket adorned with the racial epithet. Nas said th e ir p erso n a l lif e isn't nearly as atte ntion -grabbing The two were set to a ppear in an MlV reality show about th e ir lif e to gether, but the introverted rap per put the kibosh on the proj ec t before it 't:ould air.

"The holidays was a very busy time for me. I had two sons playing in Bowl games, and Marco was playing in a state championship game. "Although I'm a single mother, I'm used to the hectic schedule, because it's always been this way." Ms. Arenas said she will be able to finally catch her breath when the Super Bowl is over "When my sons were younger, we talked about their future. I encouraged them to keep working hard and good things would happen. They talked to me when they had problems, and we worked things out as a family "I'm really proud of Javier, because he fought to be a starter for Alabama. He convinced Coach Nick Saban that he would be a valuable asset to the team, and it worked out for him. Ms. Arenas said she raised her sons to always stay focused on what they needed to do to be success ful. "Like any mother, I wanted them all to be selfsufficient. I wanted to make sure they knew you had to work hard and understand that nothing comes easy. "They all had friends who tried to pull them in the wrong direction when they were growing up. But they knew the right things to do and they never gave in to the peer pressure. We are a family, and always manage to work things out. You have to be patient with today's young men, aod the screaming and yelling doesn't work. Parents must learn to listen to their children." Ms. Arenas is attending school and in her last semester. She's also running a day care business and raising her other chil dren. "It's been hard, but this is something I need to do for myself. The joy in all of this is knowing that my children are doing great things with their lives, and will be examples for others." Middleton's Football Coach surprised Bv Firing Harry Hubbard, head football coach at Middleton High School, has been fired. The Tig e r football team finishe d the 2008 season with a 2-9 r ec ord but one insider sai d that's not what l e d to Hubbard being terminate d as head coach "I can tell you, it had nothing to do with his won/loss record There were a lot of factors that went into this decision, and they will all come out later. "Coach Hubbard put a lot of trust in people on his staff who undermined him. His termination was more political than anything else." Hubbard, who is attending a coaching convention in Tennessee, said Middleton's principal, Carl Green, and Derrick Gaines, the Athletic Director, told him they wanted to go in a different direction with the football program. "It caught me completely by surprise. "''m still teaching driver's education at Middleton, and I have interviewed at Blake and I will apply at the two new schools that HARRY HUBBARD .. fired after 7 years as Middleton's head football coach. will be opening up next year. "I'll miss the players. When I told them I was leaving, they were confused and heartbroken. I always felt God put me there. When I was applying for the position 7 years ago, I knew I wasn't their first choice." Hubbard said he's at peace with the decision, and said God would have stopped it if it wasn't right. "''m pleased to have been a part of the lives of so many young men who've gone on to bigger and better things. saurces: Dallas Mav Release owens Archive Improving locker room chemistry will be the highest priority for the Dallas Cowboys this offsea son and that will force serious discussions between Wade Phillips' coaching staff and owner Jerry Jones about whether to release controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens, according to team and league sources. "I think we all know that chemistry is the problem with this team more than the schemes or anything else," a Cowboys source sai d "Are we going to con tinue to allow talent to out weigh everything else in the decisions we make with players and putting the roster together? We're like the Redskins used to be when they signed every player they wanted. There's more to it than talent. It has to be more about the team. "The big one [Owens] did n't get discussed yet, but rm sure it will and real hard." Mosley: T.O. Gone? Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens may have worn out his welcome in Big D. Team chemistry might take precedent over salary cap, Matt Mosley writes, Blog. At the moment, Jones TERRELL OWENS has insisted that Phillips will return, but he might have to reconsider if Garrett secures another opportunity. There are people within the Cowboys' organization who do not believe that Garrett would turn another job unless Jones was willing to promote him to head coach in Dallas and purge Owens from the roster. Not only does Owens have relationship issues with quarterback Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten, but the controversial receiver consistently criticized Garrett's play calling and his offensive schemes to the point that sources say the offensive coordinator does not believe they can coexist.


Sports Super Bowl Historv Again, Tomlin Could Become Youngest To Win It All MIKE TOMLIN Of all the historical achievements African Americans have made n this country, when Tony Dungy stood across the field from his prodigy, Lovie Smith two years ago in the Super Bowl, it was the first time a Black head coach had reached that game. It didn't matter if Dungy or Smith won the game. Either way, history would have been made. Tomlin first came to the NFL as a defensive backs eoach with the Buccaneers fr.om 2001 unti12006. After this past Sunday; the Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach; Tomlin; will becoftle the third Bfack head coach to take his team to the Super Bowl. In a game that featured _dynamic offensive plays, and some really critical impacts, the Steelers defense h eld on and gave the offense a 24-13 victory over the Baltimore Rav e ns. Willis MaGahee can attest to the hard hitting as h e was carted off the field with a neck injury. The last report on MaGahee r eport ed h e h ad movement in his arms and legs, but complained of n ec k pain. Tomlin, 36, is 24 -11 in two season s as the r ep l ace m ent for Bill Cowher, including 2-1 in the playoffs. Some were surprised when Dan Rooney named Tomlin as their head coach after only one season as an NFL defen sive coordinator. Tomlin's 22 r egu larseason victories are the most for a Steelers coach in hi s first two seasons, and h e is the first Pittsburgh coach to win division titles in his first two seasons. The Steelers will face the Arizona Cardinals, who pounded out a 32-25 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cardinals haven't been in a playoff final for more than 6 decades, and will enter this contest after victories over the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, : and Philadelphia Eagles. Tomlin could become the youngest head coach to win the Super Bowl. Peppers Won't Sian Term Deal With Panthers JULWS PEPPERS CHARLOTTE, N.C. After spending his entire life in North Carolina, Julius Peppers wants out. The four-time Pro Bowl defens-ive end has decided he :won't sign a long-term deal with the Carolina Panther& when he becomes an unre&tricted free agent on Feb. 26. Peppen, who grew up in N.C., atarred in co.llege at North Carolina and was the Panthers' firstround pick in 2002, believes Carolina's defe nsive system is not for him -even after recording a career-high 14 1/2 sac k s this season "He loves the state of North Carolina. Hi s family is there. The easier situation for him would be to stay in Carolina," his agent, Carl Carey, said Saturday. "But the decision that he faced was, do I stay in Carolina and perhaps never reach my full potential? Or do I open myself to the pos sibilities to finish my career elsewhere? He chose the lat ter." Carey, who first told ESPN.com of Peppers' decision early Saturday, said Peppers wants to play in a 3-4 defense. The Panthers use a 4-3 align. ment. "He certainly feels that he can excel and thrive in a 3-4 defense," Carey said. "He is also open to just another system in general that will allow him to maximize his athletic abilities." confident Raheem Morris Takes over Bucs RAHEEM MORRIS Raheem Morris 1 s you ng. e n e rg e tic a nd confi dent he's tht right c h oice as new coac h o f the Tampa Bay Buccanee r s. The 32-year-old oozed enthusias m during a news conference to introduce him as Jon Gruden's s uccessor on Saturday, even if he did not offer s pecific s about his plan to h e lp the Bucs climb back among the NFL's elite. Morris paid homage to Gruden, who led Tampa Bay to its only Super Bowl title six years ago, and said his predecessor sent him a text message earlier in the day VJishiog him well in his new job. "He told me to take this thing and run with it," Morris said. "That' s what I planned on doing. That's what I want to do. Morris takes over a team that won three division titles under Gruden but hasn'l won a playoff game since capturing the franchise's only NFL championship in January 2003 The Gruden era ended with four consecutive losses that d e ni e d the Bucs a postseason spot following a 9-3 start.

It's always changing .... If you don't adapt to those changes, you can't compete. Although he has no previous head coaching experience, Morris doesn't believe owner Malcolm Glazer and sons are taking any more of a gam}?le on him as they did when Tampa Bay traded a pair of No.' 1 -draft picks, plus two No. 2's and $8 million cash, td obtain Gruden after the 2001 season. National Obama Visits Troops, Volunteers on Kino Dav President-elect Barack Obama paints a wall during a visit to Sashu Bruce House, a shelter for teens in Washington Monday. WASHINGTON On the eve of his inauguration, Pres id ent-elect Barack Obama visited wounded tr:oops at a military hospi tal, help e d paint a wall at a s h elte r for homeless teens and paid tribute to the Rev. M _artin Luther King Jr. on the civil rights lead'er's national day. He said there qm't be "idle hands" at a time of national hardship a .nd pledged to make the government do its part. Invoking King's legacy as "not just a dreamer, but a doer," Obama urged all Americans to pitch in and take part in community service Ever-growing crowds thronged to the capital city on the eve of Obama's elevation to the presidency. "Tomorrow, we will come together as one people on the same Mall where Dr. King's dream echoes still," Obama said. At lunchtime, Michelle Obama joined her husband at Calvin Coolidge High School, where the couple greeted 300 people who were writing letters to U.S. troops and doing other voluntee r activities. Obama thanked them for following King's path of service 'This is not just a one-day affair' "If we're waiting for some body else to do something, it never gets done," said Obama, once a community organizer in Chicago. "We're going to have to take responsibility, all of us. This is not just a one-day affair." As for himself, Obama said, "I am making a commitment to you as your next president that we are going to make government work." A day away from becoming the nation's 44th president, Obama made a morning visit to 14 injured vets from Iraq and Afghanistan at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. We can't aUow any idle hands. Everybody's got to be involved. I think the American people are ready to do that," Obama said, grabbing a paint roller to help give the walls a fresh coat of blue. "I think I've got this wall covered," he said. 3602 7th Avenue* Tampa, Ft 241-2301 or 247-3719 I Keys Made Latex Flat White Painl ............ $5.99 gal.

Undoubtedly in spired by recent events in Greece, a protest of hundreds of people that took to the streets in response to the unprovoked police execution of an unarmed man at a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station in Oakland, California, turned rowdy Wednesday night.
