Local "T1 :II 0 Albert Gallman, Jr. Called To Pastor Peace Progressive M. B. Church "T1 m OJ :II c )> :II -< 1\) -...! BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor In his career as a minister and pastor, Albert Gallmon, Jr. will do something that has not been done in the past -he will deliver his first sermon as Pastor of Peace Progressive Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, March 1st, his birthday. As he celebrates his birth with family and friends, he will also celebrate his spiritual birth with a new family. Peace has been without a pastor for more than a year -since the resignation of Reverend W. F. Leonard. After several months of hearing from guest ministers, the congregation chose the Tampa as its leader. His early years were spent in an apartment on Chipco, just around the_ corner from Peace, until his parents, Deacon Albert, ,Sr. (deceased) and Mrs. Eddye Gallmon became residents of Progress Village. Rev. Gallmon attended College Hill Elementary, Progress Village Elementary, Booker T . Washington and Dowdell Jr. High and graduated from King High School. Having been a basketball player throughout his high school years, he earned a scholarship to St. Joseph Jr. College (Jensen Beach), where he earned an AA degree. He continued his e ducation with another basketball scholarship to St. John Fisher .College in Rochester, NY, earning a BA degree in Political Science, with a minor in Math. REV. And MRS. ALBERT GALLMON, JR. It"was short Jived, but Rev.-: Gallmon was drafted by tpe (now defunct) ABA Buffalo Braves in 1974 and released. If was then time to go to He Worked for Easfman Kodak, IBM and Chase Bank as the Branch Manager, all in Rochester. While working for the bank: he was very active in his church -Aenon Baptist Church under Rev. James L. Cherry. "It just seemed as though something was missing. One night I asked the Lord, 'what am I to do next?' My wife saw me in deep thought and asked what was on my mind. I told her the Lord was calling me to preach. She told me to accept and go to bed. And that's what I did," he explained. "That was on Monday night. I quit my job on Friday -and started in seminary school full time that Monday." Rev. Gallmon attended Colgate Divinity School, and completed his coursework for a Master's of Divinity at Howard Divinity School, both in Rochester. The first church he was called to pastor was Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Washington, DC. From there, he became the Minister of Administration at Metropolitan Baptist Church under H. Beecher Hicks, Jr. His next assignment took him across the country as pastor of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN, where he remained until last year when he returned to Tampa as the assistant to Rev. Dr. Arthur T. Jones and the Director of Ministries at Bible-Based Fellowship Church. Rev. Gallmon is an outgrowth of St. John Progressive M B. Church, having been baptized under Worship with Usl. Rev. F. G. Hilton. His brother, Rev. Freeman Gallmon, pastors Mt. Moriah M. B. Church in Gainesville and his sister, Kaffie Wilcoxon resides in St. Pete. 1\) serve the community 7 days g a week and not just on tO Sundays." The next part of their goal is to be able to build on its current site a worship center and a center that will serve the commu nity. Rev. Gallmon and his wife, Wilma Gallmon have two children : son, Albert is employed by Verizon; and daughter, Jo Anna is a sen10r at Tuskegee University, looking to attend law school. As he partners with the leadership at Peace, Rev. Gallmon said they'd like to be a more relevant church in the community and witness in the community in which they serve. "We'd also like to "I'm very blessed to be. called by the people of Peace. I'm thankful for the foundation built by Rev. (J. C.) Goins and Rev. Leonard.

His first business in Tampa was a Pressing Club, begun in 1921. He also owned businesses in Florence Villa. Be.cause he was such a humanitarian, Davis gave to Hillsborough County (for the sum of $1.00) land on Potter St. and 28th Ave. where the first Lee' bavis Clinic was built to provide health care for Blacks; The land was across the street from his home. In 1960, Davis built a lavish home on the corner of Osborne Ave. and 36th St. With his generosity, Davis also bought the first bus for Middleton High School and made generous donations to his ch1,uch, St. Paul AME The Lee Davis Neighborhood Service Center bears his name.

During the screenings, three cancers and 51 abnormalities were found. We are making progr ess and identifying people through this forum." Dr. Rivers said the spon-BRIAN RIVERS PhD, MPH Executive Director, Florida Prostate Cancer Network sors expect more men to attend the forum this year simply because of the economy, the impact of layoffs resulting in people being uninsured, and the fact that those who are working may be uninsured because they need the money for living expenses . The screenings planned for the day will b egin at 8 a. m and conclude at 12 o'clock. There is no fasting required and blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, colon can cer kit, and prostate cancer screenings will be availab le. However, men interested in. obtaining the prostate cancer screening must be pre-registered We don't want t o make women feel that they are not included i n this because they get involved in the process by encouraging a lo ved on e to have the screen ings. Last year, women were dropping the men off to "take advantage of the screenings. We have everything in place, all you have to do is call and register," Dr. Rivers said. The forum is open to any one wishing to participat e or to have screenings. Howevr, Dr. Rivers said those interesteQ. must call and register.

Now, I don't know what direction the team is going. Even Raheem Morris seemed stunned by the moves, so it appears the decisions came from higher up.

lord, Give Me A New Heart! There are many people in need of a heart transplant. Their current heart is not able to keep up with the physical demands the body requires. Because of their previous lifestyle their heart has been damaged and unable to function at one-hun dred percent. Oftentimes people find themselves in need of a spir itual heart transplant. The purpose of needing a new spiritual heart is so that you can begin to follow the com mands and decrees of God. In this week's lesson, in Ezekiel 11:14-21, God speaks to Ezekiel about giv ing the people a new heart. Before giving them the new heart, God gives them back ground about their current condition. Some of the Israelites have been taken away captive and there are some who are left behind. Those who are left behind have words to say about those who are taken; "They are far away from the Lord; ;-and-their land is ours for a posses sion." This is thought of people who have struggled together and are also re lated. It is an unfortunate thing when people who are sup posed to look out for one an other, want to take advantage of each other when going through trials and tribulations. The church should not be a place where people gloat because someone has fallen or their sins have found them out. God says to them that al-. though they have been scat tered among heathens and are living in other countries, He will .Still be with them and will be a sanctuary for them (vs. 16). Oftentimes your disobedience will cause you to be chastised by God and taken captive by your enemy. Sometimes the way you live and the choices you make will cause you to be put in some uncomfo rtable situations. While your actions and be havior may deserve the pun ishment, God is still merciful. He says,. that al. though you are taken cap tive, He will be with you. Although you caused the : problem, He will still be a place of refuge for you. God will still give you a time and a place that you can worship and serve Him. Even in their captivity, God was still there. He promised to bring them out. He gave His word that He would bring them back home to their own land. No matter where you go and why you have gone, God will bring you back home. Though you may live in the land of your oppressor, God will still bring you home. the commands of God. 22 c God welcomes all those indi viduals who messed up, ran away, went astray, or was just rebellious and left to come home. God recognizes why you make the choices you make. God understands why you sin and fall short. In God's eyes it is a heart thing. Your heart may not be right. You do what you do because you have a heart condition and you need a heart transplant. With this new heart trans-;H plant you will be able to do OJ what the Lord commands. When God gives you this new heart you will see as He N sees and hear what He speaks. When you get a new _:g heart you have to make some lifestyle changes. The things you used to do are no longer comfortable for you to do with your new heart. The church must get a new heart. The church must make sure that it is living and seiving according to the new g\{idelines and instruc tions of having a new heart. God is performing heart tra"rispfants .. and heart is available for you. Get yours today and. see how much your life will be better toGod says, "I wilrgive them a new heart and a new spirit, I will take away the stony heart" (vs: is). It is tliis heart of stone that keeps in dividuals from loving God with all fneirheart. It is this heart of stone that keeps you from trusting God with all your heart. The stony heart makes it impossible to obey morrow! New Mt. Zion A. M. E. Church "A Super Natural Church Composed Of Super Natural People w 7401 So.

can The Ravs Do A Repeatil The Tampa Bay Rays had a fantastic season last year. The question is, can they do a repeat? The answer is, I don't know. The Rays play in one of the toughest divisions in Major League Baseball. Rest assured. the Yankees, the Red Soxs and the Toronto Blue Jays will be better. The Rays have basically stood pat. There are some glaring questions that -need to be answered. The first question is, will an unhappy B. J. Upton and a disap_pointed catcher, Dioner Navarro contribute as much.' as they did last season? Both of these young men are pros. But, both of them feel that they are underpaid. A second question is, will the Rays miss .the departed pitcher, Edwin JacksQn, clutch hitter, Roco Ballda and. designated hitter; Cliff Floyd? All three of these players contributed heavily to the Rays' success. Then there is the question as to wl}.ether the Rays' young pitching staff can duplicate last season's success. Spring training bas begun. We won't'have lorigto wait to get. the answers to some of the questions that plague the American League Champions.

Florida offensive lineman Carl Johnson is fac ing an allegation of multiple date-rapes. Johnson, a 6-7, 350-pound rising junior .who is expected to start at tackle, was arrested Feb. 16 for violating a temporary restraining order filed by an ex-girlfriend, who claims Johnson dateraped her three times from September November. On Tuesday, Johnson had his hearing pushe d back to April 7, at the request o f his attorney. The Orlando Sentinel, citing court documents, reported that the ex-girlfriend claimed to have experienced "regular" physical and emot.ional abuse, including shaking, biting and hitting, during her relationship with Johnson .. The petition also states Johnson said that a goal in life was "to shoot and kill someone." After being informed of the accusations, Johnson told the ex-girlfriend that he had plans to "go upstairs and get his gun." When she told him he could go to jail, he said I don't care, at least it would be for something good." Florida coach Urban Meyer has not commented publicly on the case. STARKES ROOFING, INC.

Marburv Finallv Panswavs With Knicks STEPHON MARBURY NEW YORK -The New York Knicks are free of Stephon Marbury, and the troublesom e point guard is free to join a playoff contender. Marbury was waived Tues day by the Knicks ending a turbulent five -year stint i n which the f ormer All -Star couldn't l ead his hometown team to a single playoff victory. The fearri released a ment saying an agreement between the' Knicks and Marbury had been, reached, but did not disclose financial terms. Knicks president Donnie Walsh has said the team and Marbury have been trying to work out a buyout. Walsh's hope was to get something for Marbury in a trade, but with Marbury's salary of close to $21 million this season and a d ivisive p ersonality, h e kne w a deal was improb able. Marbury would be eligi b l e to play in the postseason for any team that s igns him because h e was waiv e d by M a rch 1. Police: White. Strikes Victim With Belt.

Entertainment Banle Erupts over Film Rights To Tupac's Bio TUPAC LOS ANGELES -Film production company Morgan Creek is in a legal turfwar with the estate of Tupac Shakur. The Rick Nicita-topped production house has sued Amaru Entertainment, the company run by Afeni Shakur, the late rapper's mother and executor, alleging in a Los Angeies Superior Court filing that the company has backed out of an agreement to sell his life rights for a. film adaptation. Negotiations between Morgan Creek and Amaru began in November for life rights that would form the basis of the untitled project . Life rights and collaboration with an executor are not always necessary with a public figure like Shakur, though they would be essential if the filmmakers hope to include music, as they would in this case. According to the complaint, a written contract was in place for life rights, with Morgan Creek claiming that Amaru is "refusing to honor and perform a contract of a production of the film based on the life of Tupac Shakur." The company seeks damages and other relief. But late Wednesday, Amaru's lawyers denied the existence of a deal. ''There is no agreement with Morgan Creek, there never was, and there -dever will be," said Amaru attorney Skip Miller, adding that the court filing is an attempt to force his client's hand. Miller said negotiations for a biopic on the controversial rapper were under way at several studios and that Morgan Creek attempted to sabotage those talks with threats of litigation. "They have scared away Paramount, Fox and others, and we are going to sue them. and recover millions (in damages)," Miller said.

Giving Artists A Chance To Make It To The Next Level In The Music I Artists' Transition To Gospel Came Easv OTIS "CHAPTA" YOUNG BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Otis "Chapta" Young was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Miami. He's always been surrounded by the cream of the crop when it came to music and entertainment. He actually started his own company at the age of18. "That evolved into a record label in 2001, and a release of a hit song; 'Get Krunked Up.' I also did a remix with Lil' Kim." Although Young was enjoying some success, a few years later, he went through a transition and took his music in a different direction. "I made a spiritual choice to try and reach people through God. "It was hard to leave friends you grew up with but artistically I was moving in a different J direction." For the past 5 years, Young has been involved in Gospel and has had to teach himself how to do a lot of things he had delegated to others in the past. Now, I have total coritrol over the business and I wear an assortment of hats." "My new album, 'Pretty Ugly,' pretty much reflects today's society and all the internal con flicts people go through." Young said he's been amazed at how young people have been drawn to Gospel music, espe cially .when it's presented in a format they can identify with. .. . "At every Gospel event I've been a part of, I've noticed that young people love music, and if that music is coming to them in a way they can identify, they will be drawn to it. They have felt diawn to Gospel music, so we plan to keep it H com mg.

Local "'" Mother Defends Her Famous Son Phyllis Dukes will be the first to admit that the best thing that happened to her son, professional baseball player Elijah Dukes, was him being traded to the Washington Nationals by the Tampa Bay Rays. "While he was here, he never got any support from the media, the community, or a lot of people he thought were his friends No one ever wanted to sit down and listen to him, and every time an al legation came up, everyone jumped on it and automati cally said Elijah was guilty. Ms. Dukes said the latest incident involving a paternity issue turned out in favor of Elijah as tests proved he wasn't the father of the child. "No one was interested in waiting for the test results to come back. They automati cally said he was guilty and started blasting him again He never got any peace in Tampa, and that's a shame "Every athlete that came from. Tampa dreams of play ing for his or her hometown team Elijah felt the same way He just didn't know he would be targeted by the media when his marital prob lems became public knowl edge." Ms. Dukes said she's proud to announce her son has moved on and is progressing well in Washington "He's a different man now. He's content and happy, and can do what he does best and that's being a great baseball player. "Tampa never showed Elijah any love. Even today after he's gone, the spot:ts talk sta tions talk about him nega tively. I don't want my son to be a villain in his hometown. It's not fair to him or his fam ily." Ms. Dukes said Elijah comes to Tampa often, but is always under the radar. She also said he never addresses the local media. "I've told him from now on, I'll address the media for him. I don't want microphones or cameras in his face. I want them to leave him alone and allow him to live his own life. "Elijah isn't in Tampa any more for the media to pick on him, and that's a good thing. A lot of people aren't aware of all the things he's done in PHYLLIS DUKES Tampa to give back to the community. He wants it that way, because he just doesn't want the attention of the whether it be good or bad." Reporter Leon B.
