Features Former Central Park Familv loses Evervthing In Fire THOMASINA DAYMON Two fires this weekend within a block of each other displaced two families. In the first fire Sunday morning, Tampa Fire Rescue responded to a house fire at 1205 East 15th Avenue. When they arrived, they reported smoke and flames coming from the house. An investigator from the Tampa Fire Marshals Office determined that a fortunate serjes of events prevented the fire from becoming a : tragedy. The home was occupied by Mrs. Thomasina Daymon, 30, her husband, Alfred, and their s children. Mrs. Daymon said they moved into the house in February 2007 after bein'g one of the first families to be relocated from Central Park Village. She also said they had been the victims of a fire there, but it wasn't that bad. Mrs. Daymon recalls what happened that morning. "My children were sleep ing, I was watching televi sion, and my husband had just left to spend time with family members who had This is what's left of the home on 15th Avenue where Mrs. Daymon, her husband, and their children lived. arrived from out of town. "As I was watching the television, it suddenly got fuzzy like the service had been cut off Then the entire house went dark." Mrs. Daymon said the next thing she heard was her neighbor, Elizabeth Howard, screaming for them to get out of the house "I heard my neighbor screaming, then I heard someone banging on my door telling us to get out. I got my 2-ye a r-old and my daughters out easy, but I had to drag my 2 boys down the stairs, because they are heavy sleepers. I ran back into the house to get m y phone after I got the kids out a .nd called 9-1-1 and then my husband. Mrs. Daymon said that's when she heard a loud boom. "When we heard that boom we all ran, including the man who h a d knocked on our door. Th a t 's wh e n the entire floor of the house just went up in flames. I had a dog in the backyard and the firemen saved her." Mrs. Daymon said she thanks her neighbors for saving their lives. "They were outside with buckets and hoses trying to putthe fire out. Mrs. Daymon said they lost e verything in the fire "We were renting the house and the owner had the house insured. I had experienced. some electrical problems, but we weren' t aware of the bad wiring in the house.'-' Mrs. Daymon said their immediate needs are clothing, school supplies and shoes. "The fire shook the kids up pretty bad. I want them to stay focused because it' s FCAT testing time." The children are: 2-yeai : old boy, Aljavonnie; syear-old girl, Al-Liya; 6year-old boy, Alfonzo; 9y earold bo y Al!red, Jx<, Child, 2, Hospitalized After Bei-ng Hit avcar A 2-year-old child is recovering at a local hospital after being struck by a vehicle Friday evening The child apparently darted into the path of the oncoming vehicle around 4 p.m. According to police, Bryce King, was playing the backyard of the duplex shortly before the accident happened. Police said his mother, Ms. Utara King, turned to place her infant baby in an indoor swing when the youngster ran around the apartment complex. Police said Mrs. Delores Sherman Taylor, who was driving a 2000 Mercedes, was at the intersection of Columbus Dr and Central Avenue when the child ran into the street and was struck. Members of the Tampa Police Department responded to the scene and performed CPR on the child before he was transported to St. Joseph s Hospital in serious condition with fractures and a head injury. He condition was later upgraded to stable. On Monday, Ms. King said her son was still in the intensive care unit of the hospital, but that he should fully recover from his injuries. Mrs. Taylor was traveling about 30 miles an hour when the accident occurred and no charges will be filed, police said. .... 1\) 0 0 (0 This house on Columbus Drive is still being occupied after an early morning fire virtually destroyed the roof r and rear of the house. g and 10-year-old Aldashia. girl, Anyone who can offer this family any assistance can reach Mrs. Daymon at (813) 802-2692.

Nevertheless, sadde:ried to learn both Derrick Brooks an.d Warrick Dunn had been released from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers :Not only did they prove themselves supermen, on the gridiron, but have proven themselves as gentlemen, heroes and philanthropists in the community. Indeed; they have embodied the ad!lge "To whom much is given, niuch is required." And of that ad_age, they have responded, admirably. -What did they do? Both Brooks and Dunn have consistently and unselfishly given of their time and financial resources to help improve the lives of numerous youths and families. And for this, not withstanding their sterling efforts. as NFL super-stars, do Brooks and Dunn deserve and award. .. ..... Therefore; : cin behalf of :Tampa-Hillsborough county's (!) -Black community and on behalf of all wlio support us :J .and our dialogue; we extend appreciation and well-wishm : -es to Deri.ick Brooks for providing trips to the it: 'Motherland, New York's Julliard School; as -well as z : other places where many children might never see.

S orne say its old news, what happened betWeen rapper-singer Chris Brown and his on-again'"_off-again celebrity sweetheart Rihanna. Perhaps, indeed, the fire has gone out and the smoke has simmered between those two. But what about other Black men and whose faces are not as weU recognized and consequently, their stories are not as well known? For many of them, this story is as fresh as if it happened,.th!smorning. In too many instances,.rthat's exactly when it happened. What are the statistics on Black-on-Black domestic vio-lence? Usually, statisticians don't get recruited the data So, join us on a flight, fancy. Could the of Black men striking their significant others be a mere 5 or 6 percent of overall African America-population? Is that too smalla. percent-, .age?. Do would probably be 10 percent, fifty? How many Black women or men do youkno' :l"Jw have been victims of domestic violence? }1s quietly as it's kept, lesbian couples m:-e not immune to physical fisticuffs. And these possible tics bring us to gaunt, unsettling question: Why? Why do Black men and Black women that their affair is not real unless it includes beating -=t on each other? W Perhaps,. it's a vestige of slavery. Maybe, the why many JJlack men and certain Black women tolerate Q. the idea of physical violence is because of traditions The lesson Teachers.Just Don't learn 0 ne would think that by now, teachers would have learnec that having special" relationships with their students lead to One would .think that, but apparently, many "teachers. are getting involved in and continuing this destructive behavior. It seems that the teachers themselves just don' t learn that not only will this behav ior cost you your life, spouse (in many cases), and your freedom. For some odd rea son, each and every one who has gotten "ca ught" thought it could, would never happen tothem. In the bay area, several teachers have been arrested for having inappropriate rela tionships with students they are entrusted to educate. Yet, again, this weekend, another one bit the dust. For the second time this year, a Pinellas County teacher has found herself in hot water. Police accuse 32-year-old Christy Lynn Martin with sending porno graphic pictures to a 14-yea'r old student She is accused of exchanging naked pictures with this student. After she allegedly sent pictures of herself to him on two occasions, he sent her one back. And, yes, the method of communication was a cell phone. The incident was reported to police on S aturday after the child confided in an adult relative. The relative told the boy 's mother and police were notified early on S a turday By nightfall, police had tracked Ms. Martin down and she wa s behind bars. Ironically, she's listed as a computer business applica tions and life choices teacher. Perhaps, the school should have examined her "life choices" credentials a lit tle more closely before hiring her. , We all know that every i its own share of less than savory people. After all, the people, whether they ale in education; law enforcement, the church, or any other field, are reflective of this melting pot we call a society. Unfortunately, the test to determine who will prey on our children has yet to be devised This means that par ents must be diligent in pro tecting their children --even from their teachers! One would think that after so many others have been arrested and sentenced to jail, others would not try to do the same thing. But, apparently, this is a lesson that teachers just refuse to learn. Haiti: linle-Known Facts W:lat you are abo ut to re a d I have found utterl y fa sc inating. While researching Haitian history, I found many inter esting facts about the country and its people that 1 was unable to sha re with you, in coluffi'ns, for lack of time and space So, today let me share some of these facts in order for you to enjoy the full flavor of Haiti's history and its role in Pan African and world history. Regardin' g the Atlantic slave Hade and lions, the importation of slaves to Haiti oetween 1783 an' d ll;;i9 i : accclliiitetl. fO'r 33 percent of the Afticim slave trade. During slave rebellions, Mary Jean Dessalines crawled three miles through French military lines to take a message to her husband, former slave and liberator of Haiti. H;iiiti also has the tallest mountain range in Caribbean, which was used successfully by runaway s l aves to l a unch raids. Ind ee d the rebelling slaves burned every French home a nd business on the island in retaliation for some of the bloodiest and most brutal atrocities against slaves, in the history of the Americas. Toda y those acts (hangings, boiling, beheading, drownings, burnings etc.) would be considered war crimes No wonder many French colonists fled to Louisiana and Cuba during Haiti's slave rebellions. Members Of the Polish army refused to fight against slaves and were spared from slaughterby Dessal.!nes once he defeated Napoleon.-Haiti enacted a law that prevented non-Haitians from owning property in Haiti. Even though Haiti was declared an independent nation in 1804, it was excluded from the first regional meeting of independent nations, held in Panama in 1826 because of racist Southern slave states Haiti received United St a tes diplomati c recognition in 1862, only after those states seceded from the Union. During President Jean Pierre Boyer's rule (during the 182o s) Boyer influenced the largest fre e Black immigration from the United States took place in hope of Haiti building eco nomic and diplomatic relations with the United States More than 6 ,000 Black American immigrants settled in different parts of Haiti, with most of t>hem liv ing in Samana on the Spanish side of the island. Around that time, Haiti assumed extensive debt to pay for French property destroyed during the rev olution. Haiti developed a rich culture, influenced heavily by France, Africa, Cuba and other Spanish countries.

However, Compas lyrics for Continued On Page 5 handed down from grandparent to parent and from parent to Perhaps, it's a from the Bible or other holy books that makes sane people believe they can do insane things to one another, then explain it as "God's Will," or as "No other choice!" No matter the reason, the result is always sad.

Tiger woods And John Henrv! Well, what did we THINK would hap pen? Americans are so naive ... or is it cun;qing? The Tiger Woods stepped bacl< onto the stage, with a mend ing knee. And he lost! Well, what in the, !{ECK did we think would happen? I'll tell you. America has a sadistic streak that plays out, especially in its politics, its entertain ment and in its sports. I call it the "JOHN HENRY" plex. You remember him, don't you? John Henry, who some say was a real-life Black giant of a man, was a champion steel driver for a major rail r oad company They say' he was the best, fastest, most perfect ver who ever picked up. a hammer. Even his own company made bets on him. And so, it was that one day,., his company went out and bought a spanking new, highly mated steel-driving machine; then told John Henry he could have his job, if he could only out hammer hammered steel itself. Stepping up to the challenge, as he'd always done, John Henry reported ly bested the machine, but burst his heart in the effort. Whether he died immediately or later, we're told, John Henry was never the same. We Americans like that about our supermen and women, especially if they ; re Black. We like to place them with impossible odds . put them in situations that not even God's angels could sur vive ... and then ; like spiders over a flame, see if they make it out, alive! Fast backward to boxer J,ack to boxer Joe Loujs and incompara ble (for a Muhammad Ali and Y ou will see what I mean. We Americans don't like perfect heroes, especially if they' re Black . We like to bruise up, a little bit, .a;nQ.then bring them back around. And so it was with the previously implacable Tiger Woods. Quoting the Associated Press, "One day after a cere monious return to golf, Tiger Woods was on his way home." He lost to a South African, "who played 16 holes without a bogey and pulled ahead for good, on the back nine!" Do you know what I just said? Does it matter whether you understood it or not? What you do, indeed, under stand is that the myth of the "invincible" Tiger Woods is no more! Another Jack Johnson lies bested in the boxing ring; Joe Louis has met Max Schmeling, and Muhammad Ali has been chopped down by Joe Frazier! When asked he would do and where he would go from his defeat, a jaunty, but dejected Tiger :Woods looked into the eye of a news camera and dryly replied, "To the airport. I'm going to the airport." That' s the way it always is When the magic is gone, the rust immediately sets in! It happened to John Henry. He was never the same after he met a steamdrill named "Reality of the Inevitable!" It isn't rocket sci ence It happens to everybody. But perhaps, what bothers us who make a living out of watching the world is the fact that, for too many American heroes, t)ley don't really become celebrated until they have hung from the cross of defeat. We don't really embrace them until they're a little bit scratched up, espe cially if!hey're Black. Black American Insight from page 4 the music are mostly Haitian Creole and widely use electric .guitars, saxophones and horns. Today, Kompa festivals are held in Montreal, Canada, New York, Miami and Boston. Merengue is also popular in Haiti with a long-standing controversy between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, both claiming the origin of tlie dance and music. Merengue is considered Haiti s national dance and is said to have been invented by shackled slaves. As to religion, So to 85 percent of Haiti's population is Catholic and 20 percent is Protestant with a small grow ing Muslim population. Since both Catholic and Protestant Haitians practice Voodoo, the exact number of voodoo prac titioners is unknown. Finally, if. you haven't tast ed Haitian cuisine, expect a culinary delight 'Yhen you get the chance. Some of the most popular dishes are rice and beans, fried pork, goat (espe cially curried goat) chicken in-sauce and fried plantains.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer 0 n three occasions, Connie Burton's "Straight Talk" radio show has been cancelled, most recently fr o m 1150AM WTMP radio. Community activist Michelle Williams, ho wever, felt th e show was too important to just disappear, and quickl y stepped in On February 23, 2009, Connie Burton's show made its debut on the inter net. Ms. Burton's show can now be heard two ways : a call-in listening number of (347) 843-4060 or by logging onto www. blogtalkradio .c om then type in Straight Talk Live o8 once you're on the site Called blog talk radio, one of the founders of the site fea tures Ms. Burton's show 3-times a week (Sunday, Wedn es day and Friday) from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m Williams operates th e switchboard dur ing the show. "Connie and I joined the MICHELLE WILLIAMS site in 2008 and when her show was cancelled, we picked it up because we think the people need to be heard," said Ms. Williams. "People as far away as Africa have listened to the show. Ms. Burton said the world has changed, finances have changed, and working class people have a chance to participate in discussions and have their opinions aired and their voices heard. "Most radio stations are so conservative, they don't hold accountable the people responsible for the social crisis that has affected us all. Many of us have been forgot ten, and this is a way to let them be heard." Ms. Williams develops the topics for the show which is much broader now. "We control how long we want the shows to be and we touch on all and every aspect of life involving African Americans. People hear us all over the world now, and we actually talk to people from India, Africa, Israel and other countries." Ms. Williams, who owns the station, said their radio label is WCMBJ Radio. Florida Rights Restoration Coalition Plans Statewide Awareness Campaign T he Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) recently announced it will launch a series of events to bring awareness to the state's civil rights issues.

The ACLU will host the event and will show the BET Special, "Locked Out: Ex-Cons & The Vote."

Hillsboroup County Branch of the NAACP rience with those in attendance Ms. Pat Spencer, Secretary of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP said, "We have partnered with the League of Women Voters and the ACLU to participate in this event. The area of rights restoration is one the NAACP feels that more work needs to be done in so that people can get their rights (and not just voting rights), restored, become employed, and con tinue on with their lives Ms. Spencer further stated that the event will take simultaneously in Tampa, Miami, Orlando, Daytona, and Tallahassee. The purpose of the meetings is to bring attention to the plight of those individuals who have served their time, but have yet to be accepted as full members of society. Ms. LaRhonda Odom, ACLU of Florida Voting Rights Associate said many people who are eligible and have completed applications are still waiting, in some cases, two to three years. She further stated that although the Clemency Rules were changed in 2007 with the. intent to make the process easier, it still remains burdensome "Florida cannot continue .to manage such a costly, time intensive, overly bureaucratic system process when there are so many cuts being made to the state' s budget. The Governor and Cabinet have not only a moral obligation, but a duty to do the right thing for the State of Florida." City Editor Iris B.

He was arrested and booked on felony narcotics possession after being stopped at Los Angele s International Airport on Friday morning. The 45-year-o1d Coolio, whose real name is Artis Leon lvey Jr., was released after posting $10,000 bail. The arrest was first reported by the celebrity gossip Web site TMZ.com Coolio's manager, Susan Haber, said she had not yet spoken with the rapper and could not comment. The rapper, who gained fame for his 1995 single "Gangsta 's Paradise," was arrested in June on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for driving with a suspended license. Anornev: Rihanna Will Testitv If Called RIHANNA LOS ANGELES Rihanna's attorney says the singer would testify against Chris Brown if called as a witness in her. boyfriend's assault case Donald Etra, who is representing the 21-yearold Barbados native, said Friday that Rihanna would be required by law to testify if prosecutors subpoena her. Etra appeared in court Thursday when Brown made his first on charges of assaulting and making criminal threats to his superstar girlfriend. Brown's arraignment was postponed until April 6 Etra said Rihanna, whose real name is Robyu Rihanila Fenty, wants the case over .with quickly. "She wants to get along with her life and career;'' he said. Jackson sues, Calls Planned Auction Malicious' LOS ANGELES -Michael Jackson sued an auction house Wednesday to halt the scheduled sale of thousands of his personal possessions, an action the firm says caught it completely off-guard. The King of Pop's company, MJJ Productions, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday against Julien's Auction House. It claims founder Darren Julien promised to send Jackson an inventory of sale items, but that the singer hasn't given permis sion to move them all. The suit claims many of the items are "priceless and irreplaceable" and describes the attempt to sell them as "malicious, fraudulent, extreme, outrageous and without any legal justification whatsoever." Julien said Wednesday night that the lawsuit was a "total surprise to us, because Jackson had been. apprised of everything since the day we started. His manager has approved everything." Michael Announces London Show MICHAEL JACKSON LONDON -Michael Jackson has returned to the spotlight after eight years marked more by scandal than by song and told a crowd of screaming fans that he would play a series of London engagements -his first concerts since 2001. Wearing his trademark sunglasses and a silverembroidered black military-style jacket, the King of Pop said his series of shows in July will be his "final curtain call" in the British capital. "This is it," Jackson said in a brief statement punctuated by the squeals of fans who gathered inside the massive 02 Arena in southeast London on Thursday. "And when I say this is it, I mean this is it." Although Jackson said the shows would be his last in London, his statement left the door open for further concerts elsewhere. Promoter AEG Live told the BBC the shows might be part of a bigger, final world tour. An hour and a half late, Jackson appeared at the 02 -where the series of 10 concerts are due to be staged this summer -to announce the gigs. More than 300 journalists had been marshaled to capture the event, even though news of the concerts haq leaked out to the media days before. A telegenic army of .screaming fans was there to greet their star -although many in the crowd said they .were there to catch a live show due to play shortly after the announcement. The hours spent waiting frayed some tempers and a few fans shouted obscenities at journalists being escorted in ahead of them for the announcement. But most were just happy to catch a glimpse of Jackson. Drug Charges Dropped Against Rapper ATLANTA-A judge in Atlanta has dismissed felony drug charges against rapper Lil Wayne. The Grammy-award winning rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was arrested in August 2006 at a hotel. Atlanta police said they found unmarke_ d bottles containing hydrocodone and a generic form of Xanax, along with a small amount of marijuana. On Tuesday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson granted the rapper's request to suppress on the basis of an illegal search. Carter's attorney, William Head, said his client wasn't staying in the LILWAYNE room where the arrest was made. Carter currently faces drug charges in Arizona, stemming from a January 2008 arrest, and a weapons charge from 2007 in New York. ..... 0 1\) 0 0 mitment" from Brown. z "It's obviously a kind of C commitment from him to "TT her that he was serious about the fact that this will never happen again," Zwecke:J:" said. 813.247.5128 .... ....

In a statement released Friday, Bruce Cooper said his family is beginning the healing process and needs time to be together and remember his son. Cooper described his son as a great father and husband. The football player was aboard a 21-foot fishing boat when it capsized in rough seas.

Iverson savs He'll Do Whatever It Takes' ALLEN IVERSON AUBURN HILLS, Mich. --Allen Iverson says he will come off the bench if that's what's best for the D etroi t Pistons. Iverson attended the team's practice on Thurs d ay after visiting doctors at Georgetown University in Washington. H e said in a statement tha t he's disappointed the soreness in his back will force him to miss two weeks, but doctors told him .treatment and rest are best. Iverson said his goal hasn' t changed since arriving: to help the Pistons win a championship. He says he'll do "whatever it takes" -"regardless if I'm starting or coming off the bench." Iverson has missed three straight games. Detroit i s six games under .500 with Iverson starting, which coach Michael Curry says Iverson won't do when his back is healthy enough for him to play. For Sale: The House That Michael Vick Built MICHAEL VICK'S HOUSE DULUTH, GA --For sale: the remains of an American success story gone horribly wrong On a peaceful cul-de-sac in Atlanta's prosperous northern suburbs, a behemoth of a home sits empty and lifeless at 2927 Darlington Run. Four towering columns greet those who enter through a double set of thick, wooden doors. Out back, an idyllic lake laps at the edge of the yard. Within the walls, all the tell tale signs of wealth and luxury a pool room, a movie theater, an indoor golf range, assorted-sized statues of black panthers throughout. This was Michael Vick's abode, a stucco-and-gatedcommunity testament to his amazing rise from the rough streets of Virginia to NFL superstar. But Vick's spectacular career was sacked by a dogfighting scandal. While he sits behind bars, serving out the remainder of a nearly two-year sentence, his three-storied former house now eerily quiet is about to go on the auction block. The proceeds from Tuesday's sale, which requires a minimum bid of $3.2 million, will help pay down the quarterback's gargantuan debts. That's the cold, hard business of bankruptcy. But before the title to eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and a four-car garage passes off to a new owner, it' s worth taking one last look at a most tangible monument left by this former star, a once-in .-a-generation athlete who had it all before hubris brought him down. T.O. Signs With Bills For $6.51 BUFFALO, NY --Terrell Owens needed only two days to find another place to play. The Buffalo Bills decided to take a chance on the talented but high-maintenance receiver signing Owens to a $6.5 million, one-year deal Saturday. The 35-year-old Owens caught 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns last season with Dallas. But the Cowboys were looking to improve the atmosphere in the locker room and decided they would be better off without him. "I'm leaving America's team ( for ) North America's team," Owens said at a news conference. The Bills will be Owens' fourth stop. He started with San Francisco, bounced to Philadelphia -where he helped the Eagles get to a Super Bowl-and then to Dallas: "I must move on, and it's beginning for me," Owens said. "If I can be that extra added piece to get them to the playoffs, then 'TERRELL OWENS that' s what I'm here for. I looked at the defensive side of ball and offensive side of the ball, and these guys have all the pieces." The Bills were in need of a receiver to take the pressure from Lee Evans. They got one of the biggest names out there. "We all know of his tremendous ability and look forward to what he will bring to our offense," Bills owner Ralph Wilson said in a statement. "This is a very exciting day for the Buffalo Bills."

A game Jardine battled the former champ for three hard rounds but couldn't find the answer to Jackson's impressively technical striking attack, en route to a unanimous decision loss.

Bleaklev, Former USF Football Plaver Lost At Sea Is Mourned CRYSTAL RIVER, FL -A week after two NFL play ers and two of their friends sailed into the Gulf of Mexico on a fishing trip that turned disastrous, family, friends and the lone survivor paid tribute to one of the missing men. Several hundred people gathered at a Methodist church in Crystal River, a rural community north of Tampa, on Saturday after noon to remember William Bleakley, a former University of South Florida player aboard the boat. Relatives and his pastors recalled the young man's dedication to his family, and his hard work and positive attitude on and off the foot ball field. "His time here was far too short," Blake Bleakley, his older brother, told the mourners, "but.very well spent." Bleakley was aboard a boat owned by Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper the evening of Feb. 28 when .it overttirned in choppy waters off Florida's west coast.

Cooper's fami ly discontinued a private search for the men on Friday. In a statement, Bruce Cooper said the family had decided ... to forego a memorial service, but asked people to remember his son in their thoughts and hearts instead. "We are just beginning the process of healing," Bruce Cooper said. "We are stay ing prayerful. One day the pain will be a little less bur densome Right now, we just need time to be together and remember Marquis. President Obama Touts Job Creation From Stimulus Plan President Obama on Friday touted the b e n e fits of his economic recovery plan at a police cadet graduation made possible as a result of the r ecently passe d $787 billion stimulus package. President Obama says his stimulus plan will spur job creation "We've got big challenges ahead of us," Obama said at the ceremony for 25 new Columbus, Ohio police offi cers. But the stimulus plan would facilitate an econom ic recovery, he said, in part by helping support workers in law enforcement, teaching and other public sector professions. "Because of this plan, stories like the one we're celebrating here in Columbus will soon take place all across this nation," the president said as 1 he announced the distribution of $2 billion in new law enforcement grants from the stimulus package. The graduating cadets were informed at the end of January that they would be laid off because of a shortfall in the city's budget, Columbus Mayor Michael PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA Coleman said. A few weeks later, however, the city was given a $1.25 million stimulus grant through the Justice Department, which would provide funding for the cadets' jobs through the end of 2009. The cadets' future is uncertain beyond that point. "These 25 officers stand for more than just law and ord.er ," Coleman said. ''This is our nation's stimulus package at work ... and it's working right here in the city of Columbus. Obama said Friday that the latest unemployment figures prove the necessity of his $787 billion economic stimulus plan.
