Program, former ly known as the N.E.A. T Program, has been in existence in the City of Tampa. In the past, the trucks have gone through neighborhoods on specified weekends and picked up household goods for disposal. However, this year, the program has changed the way in which it makes these collections. They no longer pick up trash on the weekend. Instead, Ms. Tonja Brickhouse, Director of the City of Tampa Solid Waste C Department said, "The resi ff: dents will have a full week to c si t the household items at Z curbside for pick up. < The changes specify that while the trucks will be pick ing up trash during the entire w week, they will make only => one pick up from each house hold. ffi The program operates > through city employees volw unteers, and neighbors who fiJ are as ke d to h e lp whenever :I: possible. This program i s designed to help keep neigh Ill borhoods free of unwanted furniture and other houseZ hold items. i= The things that should be placed at curbside are items ...J that are not accepted during ffi trash pick up. Many of the _j items that will be picked up include electronics that i= require spec ial disposal. Z On F ebruary 1 7th, full m power television stations will <( no longer broadca st in their C current, or analog form. After that date broadcasting ...J will convert to a more advanced technology referred to as digital televi sion or DTV. DTV enables broadcasters to offer better picture and sound quality as MS.TONJAM. BRICKHOUSE Director of Solid Waste for the City of Tampa well as multiple programming choices. As a result of this change, some people purchased new television set whether than buy the converter boxes Residents who already have cable will still be able to use the televisions they already own. Ms. Brickhouse said residents must know how to properly dispose of the old televisions and other house hold electronics. We hosted the first ever Electronics Only Collecti o n Day o n January lOth. More .than Boo people attended the event and dropped off a wide variety of electronics. The City s next Collection Event wiJI be held on April 25th for both electromcs and house hold chemicals. In addition to televisions, items that should not b e placed in the tr ash includes cell phones, casse tt e player s ca m co rd e r s, compu ter copy machines, digital cameras, DVD play ers, l a ptop compu t e rs microwav e ovens, print e rs, radios, scanners, toner cartridges, and others Electronic it e m s are considered hazardous if it co n tains a digital display, a ciq cuit board, or rechargeable batteries Now Cooking Thursday Saturday Fresh & Smoked Mullet Trout Snapper Shrimp Sheap Head Live Blue Crabs Special Discounts For Churches, Banquets, Family Reunions And Large Orden. Food Stamp Cards Accepted 813.247.5128 ATM Machine On Premises Crime Watch Group Partners With Consumer Council Ms. Queen Miller, who is a m e mb e r of the L ee Davi s Health Consumer Council and the College Hill Crime Watch, has announced that the two groups will partner in an effort to revitalize the community and end the threats of violence to residents "We can't continue to live in the conditions that exist in our neighborhoods . The current conditions make it extremely dangerous for elderly residents to do the simple things like walk to the store or even walk to the mailbox to get their mail." Ms. Miller said groups of young men a nd women have practically taken up residence on street corners a nd near abandoned houses throughout the East Tampa commu nity. Our police force has done an excellent job, but they can't do it all themselves. They need our help, a nd that means we can t lock ourselves away from the problem and expect it to disappear MS. QUEEN MILLER In order for our communi ty to revitalize, we have to first make it attractive for new businesses, then make is safe for the current residents and those who might want to move here in the future Ms. Miller said during their meeting last Tuesday, the main topics were to help President Barack Obama, the community and the resi dents. We have the responsibili ty to m ake things better for ourselves and our community: We must support our flew president, because he has quite a task ahead of him, and he won't get it done unless we are behind him." Ms. Miller said she was pleased to see representatives from seven area churches attending their meetings "The area churches must come aboard. They are the backbone of the community and they must step up and be the front-runners for change." Ms. Miller encourages all East Tampa residents to get involved with the Health Consumer Council and the College Hill Crime Watch groups. We need them to come to the meetings and tell us what's going on in their area. We need to know what they need and what they don' t want around anymore. We also need their input as to what needs to be done to bring East Tampa back to life. Reporter Leon B.

First, a Black nian becomes President. Now, you are handed an opportunity of a lifetime, if you're eli gible! When good fortune rains, it pours, if not for you, at least for someone you know. Tsk, Tsk, Mr. Umbaugh years, we have tried to figure him out. Now, tfi111aUly we have succeeded. Rush Limbaugh loves hear himself talk. But what he talks about is of little. substance to anything that has ears. Take for instance the most recent madcap comments he made. At the beginning of one of his wild-rodeo radio talk shows, Rush Limbaugh, aka "The Phlegm-Master" let loose a fusillade against newly ele.cted Presif,lent Obama, snapping and snarling about Obama's initiatives to help. solve America's economic and ethical ills. Said Rush.(better .kno:wn as the "Sultan of Snot"), "If I wanted Obama to succeed, I'd be happy the Republicans have laid down. And I would be encou.raging Republicans/to luy down and support him. BUf," blurt ed Limbaugh, "I don't want Obama's initiatives to work!" Then from u _nderneath his whoopee-cushion Rush extracted a vitriolic. statement that even gagged his radio-staff. He growled, "I HOPE HE FAUSt" His words echoed from the radio tower, out around the world! President Obama has not been in office for three days when the King of Over-the-Counter-Pharmaceuticals says about him, "I hope he fails!" Well, this what have to say to you, Mr. Limbaugh. If President Obama falls, America fails! You should remember that. And while you're thinking, remember this, "God never fails!" Many people believe W God had a hand in putting President Obama in the White House. As we said earlier, a lot of. people believe Rush ... Limbaugh just likes to hear himself talk. esident Barack bama has not yet n in office a week, yet those who wish to spre a d negativity have already start ed. An article from the Associated Press stated that the Homeland Security Department is investigating whether or not the Presid e nt's aunt should b e deported According t o th e a rticl e five days befor e the pre sid e nti a l ele ction a dir e ctiv e known a s the "Fugitive Case Fil e Vetting Prior to Arrest, was released to the media under the Freedom of Information Act. The directive require d high-leve l approva l before federal immigration agents can arrest fugitives The pur pose of the directive is to have close supervision over ca se s that ma y b e come high profil e or bring negative publicity. Relatives Former President George W. Bush quietly imposed the rule just days before he left office The article centers on Ms. Zeituni Onyango, the half of the president's father, the late Barack Obama,Sr. Sh e also donated a total of $ 260 in small incr e ments to her n e phew 's c a mpaign She also a tt e nd e d hi s inaugura tion with h e r a ttorney. The article state d that the pr e sid e nt nor an y of his staff has mad e a statement on the directive. President Obama has the opportunity to review the dir e ctive and allow it to s tand or re v oke it. Four years ago, a judge ord e r e d Ms. Onyango, 56 to leav e the country. She is a n a ti ve of Kenya and had r e qu es ted a sy lum President Obama said he didn't know his aunt was liv ing in the United States ille gally He said the case should in normal fashion, "Yilh Obama, or h.i.!i :ppresentatives not getWftat should be noted is that President Obama has many relatives on his father s side of the family. It should also be noted that President Obama's father left when he was 2 and he only had con tact with him again when he was 10. His father died in a car accident in November 1982 Although his father had 7 othe r children, President Obama had little, if any, interaction with them. If this is the scab that President Obama's critics choose to pick at they should think again Barack Obama Joins Other Firsts that the name ..... ...... ,. Obama wilJ written in history as the "First" Black man to be elected to the presidency of the United Sfates, I thought now would be a good time to share some other firsts' with you Let us pray that this centu ry will be the end to "firsts" for Black Americans Many of you are already familiar with prominent "firsts" such as Jackie Robinson, General BenJamin 0. Davis and Dr. Charles Drew. However, there are numerous Black Americans wh' o were the "first" to achieve noteworthy accom plishments, with whom many of our readers may not be familiar. Indeed, I wonder if those of you old enough to remem ber, recognize the name Rev. Channing Phillips. Well, exactly 40 years before Barack Obama was suc cessfully nominated as the Democratic pre:>idential can didate, Channing Phillips became the first Black major party nominee in the 2oth century. Serving as chairman of the District of Columbia delegation, Phlllips was nominated as a presidential candidate at the 1968 Democratic Convention held in Chicago, Illinois. Phillips received 671h votes on his bid for the White House. Speaking of the White House, sources list Lt. Commander Benjamin Wallace Cloud as the first Black military aide assigned to the White House. Cloud was attached to the Bureau of Naval Personnel. Sports enthusiasts may know that two m ajor events took place in 1966. First, Emmett Ashford became the first Black umpire in the Major Leagues on April 12, 1966, when he called the inaugural American game between the Cleveland Indians and the Washington Senators. Six days later, on April 18, 1966, Bill Russell, renowned center for the world-champion Boston Celtics, became the first Black American to direct a major league sports team when he was named coach of the Celtics. In the world of tennis, Althea Gibson (Fiol'ida A&M graduate) was the fhst Black tennis player to play at Wimbledon, before Serena and Venus Williams were born. Winning the Wimbledon sin gles in 1957, Gibson "teamed with Darlene Hard to win the doubles championship as well". Another interesting first is Nicholas Biddle, the first Black casualty of the Civil War. The 6s-year-old escaped slave received a head injury at the hands of an angry mob while marching through the slave holding city of Baltimore, Maryland. Meanwhile, the first Bla c k Civil War combat unit was housed at Fort Scott Kansas Known as the first all-Black unit to engage in combat ; ing the Civil War, the Kan&as Colored Volunteers was organized b.y the Union Army in Demonstrating extraordinary combat skills, the unit "beat back a superior Confederate fOrce at the bat tle of Island Missouri on October 28, 1862." No doubt, the names of Black "firsts" can fill the pages of history books and are too numerous to mention in one column. So, we will discuss other Black "firsts" in future columns. Until then, Harambee!

Hunurv-Gahnuhneat!' makes his horne at he subway stop, ear 14 tfi and Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, Distridt' I:H Columbia. People have c 'on'.J ferred on him a celebrity of sorts since his song that'he sings every day, has caught the fancy of thousands of subway riders. Bundled up in rags against the winter cold, with a battered tin cup in his pudgy hand with its dirty, ragged fingernails, he sings, "HUNGRY-GAHNUHNEAT! HUNGRY-GAHNUHNEAT!" For them who are unfarnil iar, his song is unintelligible. But for others who've seen him times enough to crack his code, they know he's saying, "I'M HUNGRY AND GOT NOTHING TO EAT!" Just the other day, in the midst of the Presidential Inauguration festivities and a parade that swung down Pennsylvania Avenue by the subway stop that was his horne, this Black, burly vagrant with his salt and pepper beard and dreadlocks writhing like snakes, sang that song. And the people, who had come to witness history, snapped pictures of him, sucked their teeth and shook their heads. No doubt, people who attended the Presidential Inauguration, this past week, will forever have stories to tell They will talk about the difficulty of getting from one place to another. They will share stories about the legendary arrogance of too many D. C. public servants who are just as prone to give misinformation as they are to help lost strangers to get from points "A" to "B." Yes, wayfarers to our nation's capital who carne primarily to see America's first Black President will also recite how they saw an army of the so-called "untouchables" who turned out in force to demand handouts from the more than three million political Brahmins who crowded the Capital's sacred streets. Pilgrims will spin yarns about how they barely missed getting mugged, cheated or otherwise ripped off by some of the craftiest con artists anywhere in the world And then, in the midst of their horror-stories, visitors to Obama-land wiJl dig into their private stash and fish out T-shirts, cups, laminated portraits and Obamabobble-l,leads, talismans they purchased for the price of their pilgrimage to America s holiest city, on America's holiest of days As the conversation abates, the modern Marco Polo-WhoWent-to-See President Obama will gaze off into the distance in search of some other tidbit he or she might have f orgo t ten. And once again, h e or she will remember the grubby iittle Black man b egg in g at the subway station, n o t far from where the world welcomed our presid e nt and hi s beautiful family. Our traveler will think about the little Blac k man bundled up against the cold, who reeked of a life of no soap and water, whose teeth were a tatter of yellow and decay, and who sang a forlorn little song that subway sounds couldn't silence. With watery eyes and Sad-sack mouth he sang, "HUNGRYGAHNUHNEAT! AH M HUNGRY-GAHNUHNEAT! And of all the messages the pilf{;irns heard on January 20 his will be the song that shall serenade their dreams!

These are diseases that a person usually doesn't survive. I am concerned about all of these diseases and wish that a cure could be found for all of them One diseas e that concerns me more than all the rest by just a bit, is cancer So much research has been done on that particular illness. So much money has been spent trying to find a cure for cancer. So many people have died because of this disease. Yet, to this day, cancer remains pretty much a mystery to doctors and researchers. For years, those who study cancer have come up with more information on cancer. A lot of this informa tion has been labeled as pos sible cures To this date, we know that no cure has been found. I don't know about the rest of the world, but it makes me wonder just how serious is this cancer research It makes me wonder if all the money being spent is going to cancer research We can put men on the moon and bring them We can do organ transplants, including the heart. We can clone people, do artificial insemination, fly faster than the speed of sound and do all other kinds of miraculous things. Yet, we have not been able to find a cure for cancer. I would venture to say that we really don't know what causes cancer. The world needs to really dedicate itself to finding a cure for cancer. The disease causes too much pain and suffering and ends too many lives to continue to go on unchecked. Cancer is one of the most feared problems fac ing the world today. I refuse to believe that with all of the brilliant minds in the world and with all the dying cancer patients in this world, we can't find a cure for cancer. Likewise, I refuse to believe that we are putting forth our best effort. I wonder ... would we find a cure if we put together a team ., of the world's best medical r and research minds to do nothing but work on a cure 6 for cancer Could we possibly )> find a cure then? en m z ::::1 z m ,...

In 1926, Carter G.

On January 20, 2009, the world witnessed a turning point in this country. On the shoulders of our ancestors, Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th Presid e nt of the United States of America, marking a major milestone in the soo-year sojourn of Africa's descendants in America. In front of a worldwide audience and what one preacher referred to as a 'great cloud of witnesses shouting in Heaven', Barack Obnma was sworn in as America's fir s t Black presi d e nt He told the world tluit 'our time of standing put' i s over, that t\mc 1ica c nn no longl'r afford pl'lty p olitics and putting off hard decisions', that 'in the words of m Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things '." :0 Since his announcement to :;. run for the presidency of the C United States, the uphill rn climb was truly a : nail-biter C Prior to his declaration, I too was enthralled with )> "Clinton fever But, it takes a real man or woman "to set "T1 aside childish things and do :0 the right thing.

Entertainment Chris Rock: No Obama JokesYet CHRIS ROCK PARK CITY, UTAH -While Chris Rock had plenty to say about Sen. John McCain during the presidential campaign, he told CNN on Monday that he'd have some trouble doing the same for the newly inaugurated President Barack Obama. "It's like 'Ooh, you're young and virile and you've got a beautiful wife and kids. You're the first African-American president.' You know, what do you say?" he said. According to Chris, that puts Barack in a superstar club "He's just one of those guys, you know, like Will Smith," he said. "(There are) no Will Smith jokes. [There are) no Brad Pitt jokes. 'Ooh, you used to haye sex with Jennifer Anniston. Now you have sex with Angelina Jolie. You're such a loser .' What do you say? 'Ooh, your movies are big You make $20 million.' There's nothing to say about Brad Pitt." But, he added, the new president won't be immune to humor forever "There's always slipups," Chris said.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer With the departure of 7-year head football coach, Harry Hubbard, Middleton High School has filled that slot with the hiring of former Bloomingdale head foot ball coach, Jason Stokes. Middleton Athletic Director, Derrick Gaines, said he interviewed about 20 area coaches before selecting Stokes. I felt his outlook on life and his ability to reach the kids impressed me. We needed new energy and a boost to get us to the next level. We want to return to our glory days. Gaines said he felt Z Stokes was very know!< edgeable and a great moti0 UJ w : t-r:t w > vator. "Being an inner-city kid himself, he can relate to the players and under stand what they're going through. W "His success at Bloomingdale was very % impressive. We hope he can bring that success ID here." i Gaines said Stokes :::t ID ..:. IU z J LL. made no false or quick fixes. "He just said he wanted to start from the ground floor and .build his own program through recruit ing and instilling confi dence. "The current players have greeted him well and he has visited the campus and .attended a parent meeting. He's gone over the rosters, and he's ready to get started." Coach Stokes said what attracted him to the job was the similarity the school has with the one he grew up in while living in the Washington, D .C. area. "I grew up in a communi ty in the D.C area like the one that surrounds Middleton. I really enjoy being in that kind of envi ronment. I feel a closer connection to the players." Coach Stokes said his biggest challenge will be re}:>rogramm ing the ath letes. "I want to instill in them JASON STOKES Middleton's new Head Football Coach. the ethic to work hard and I need to get them into the weight room. I reviewed film from last year and I noticed the guys were get ting pushed around a lot and tiring during the game. I think I've identi fied where most of the weaknesses are. "I've already identified my team leaders. They will be Andre Gunn, Justin Sanders and Matt Parker. They will be the kids I expect to guide me along. Coach Stokes said what he11 miss the most at Bloomingdale is the atmos phere and the fact that there are great of kids there. "Once I get started at Middleton, I'll have some of my coaches from Bloomingdale. "I will say I'm working on a 3-year plan to turn things around, but -it may happen sooner." Coach Stokes played his college football at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. He moved to Tampa in 2003, got a coach job at Riverview as a defensive coordinator, then later to Bloomingdale as head coach. Coach Stokes has been married .for 10 years to Chamaine Stokes. The couple has two sons and a foster son. Coach Stokes said he's looking for support from the community in getting Middleton's weight room upgraded, and would wel come any contacts that can help him get that done An Interview With New Buccaneers Coach, Raheem Morris First touted as the new defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when the Glazer Family sent Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen packing last week, Raheem Morris was named the new head coach. Morris, only 32 years old, is the second African American head coach of the Buccaneers, and the team's eighth in its history. Morris is in his second stint with the Buccaneers, spending the past two sea sons as the defensive backs coach after also serving on the defensive coaching staff from 2002 until 2005. In between stints in Tampa, he spent 2006 as Kansas State's defensive coordinator. Morris was asked what philosophy he will bring to the Buccaneers. "Around here, we don't talk about philosophies as much. Our philosophy is our core beliefs, it's our fundamental style of attack. That's who we are, that's who we'll always be and we'll stay doing that. We're going to stay the course. That's what we have to do to be great." Morris said right now, they are in the process of formulating their plan for the future. "From there, we will con tinue to fill out our staff and as always, evaluate our current players as well as the draft and free agents." Morris said when it comes to the most urgent needs of the team at this time, he doesn't think you can look at one spot and say it's more or less urgent. We n e 'ed to be urgent about everything we do around here. We need to "'Tilt ()/lr C'n111111Unit\' :ipe ok. in,; .fill' lt, H : I/"" (813) 248-1921 RAHEEM MORRIS Buccaneer Head Coach assess everything and that has already begun. We have hit the ground run ning, spending time this week at the Senior Bowl and of course, the combine is coming up. We need to fill out our coaching staff and that has already begun. We have a lot to do and I am excited about the challenge." Asked about whether there will be more Black head coaches in the NFL, Morris said he believes so. "If you look at all of the qualified Black assistants in the NFL, I would like to think more and more coaches will get the oppor tunity to lead a team." Morris is a native of lrivngton, New Jersey, and played as a safety at Hofstra University from 1994 until 1997. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in physical education when he gradu-ated. He began his coach ing career at Hofstra in 1998 where he was respon sible for coaching the offensive scout team, developing scouting reports and handling video breakdown and computer input and analysis.
