That, along with the more than $10 million T.H.A. received as part of the H U D. Stimulus Package. will afford them_the opportunity to commence property improvements. T.H.A. spokesperson, Lillian Stringer, said a lot of the improvements are based on what residents said they wanted to see improved. "Through public meetings and the resident association leaders, we have identified what the residents have put priorities on." Stringer said Robles Park, North Boulevard Homes, and their other properties will all benefit from the extra funding. "W e've already started making change s at J. L.

So, following this LL ancient East Indian tradition, we salute Hillsborough County Public Schools for its progress in the fourth 4( and fifth grade FCAT results. But we. continue to be gravely concerned over FCAT results in high school C grades, especi8lly regarding the tenth grade. f3 The news is nothing new. Since its introduction, ;:, FCAT has seemingly sent a mixed-message to all cont-. cerned. Indeed, it has ignited endless debates, while driving many a teacher to distraction, and more than a few students to .turn their backs on education, altow gether. )j-Everyone would agree. A society's bedrock is its There is an old adage that says, "If you are living in a glass house, don't throw any stones." What many people don't realize is that modern technology has transformed all of our homes into glass houses. This is something that we all know to be a fact, yet for some reason we seem to forget about it as we go about our lives. But, when something happens that requires the use of this technology, it is only then that the transparency of our lives comes to the forefront. Last month, the family of a Tampa wife and mother reported her missing to police. As the investigation unfolded and leads were obtained, the path led to the Greyhound Bus Station in Glass Houses downtown Tampa. Investigating detectives, with the use of video cameras, were able to determine that no apparent harWl had come to this woman and that although her family may not have known where she was, she did. .. 4 Police were able to track this woman to the bus station on two separate occasions. Videos showed her exiting and re-entering the bus in Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tallahassee. They were even able to determine that she changed clothes and removed a wig she had been wearing after she reached Orlando. Since adults have the right to go and come as they please, police could close their inves. tigation into the case. The long and short of it all is that privacy has given way to the world of videos. Practically every business bar some sort of camera operating. Businesses began using cameras. to help capture suspects in criminal cases. Today, videos have become a necessary tool of law enforcement. And, although the woman previously mentioned didn't commit a crime, the camera helped police to determine that she apparently left of her own accord. On more than one occasion, images captured by cameras at businesses have provided information that solved murders. Singer Rockwell best sums it up in the lyrics of his song, "Somebody 's Watching Me." "I always feel that somebody's watching me,'and I have no privacy ... :c school system."

Countv Budget Cuts Are Frightening N o, we cerbiinly don't envy the budget reduction' tasks that face County Administrator Pat Bean, her administrative staff and county commissioners in the coming County's new budget is a monster rivaling even the great white whale of Captain Ahab. Amid reduced property taxes and the loss of new construction revenue; the .. County must courageously and carefully reduce its budget by nearly $140 million, while eliminating close to 900 jobs. We are also concerned about the fate of programs, which impact and protect minority community inter-ests, among many other concerns and issues. Though general statements such as "outreach to minority residents could become part-time work," have pricked our attention, here recently, we are specifically concerned about what happens to programs that impact minority businesses and equal opportunity for Hillsborough County citizens. In addition, the loss of local resources. to report and investigate discrimination complaints regarding hous-4( ing, employment and public accommodations w e find troubling. Consequently, we have much that frightens us regarding this recent series of County cutbacks. Part Two There is no doubt in my mind that if Frederick Douglass were alive today, he would. be one .of women's staunchest supporters for ratification of wom en's Equal Rights Amendments. You see, one of the little known details of Douglass' life is the speech he gave at the first Women's Rights con vention at Seneca Falls. As the only BHlcltperson attend ing the conference, Douglass spoke in support of the women's petition to' request the right to vote, causing the 1 t convention to almost unanimously support the action. Douglass connected the freedom of men to vote to that of women and all humanity. Little details such as these make Douglass' life more interesting. S'a'me of Douglass' views on employment, education and integration were comparable to those of some of today's leaders. Indeed, one source states Douglass "believed that education was key for Mrican Americans to improve their lives and was an early supporter of the desegregation of schools" in 1850 when he openly criticized the New York School system for the horrendous condition of the schools for Blacks.' When it came to advocacy in the 186o's, Douglass met' with President Abraham lincoln (1863) on the issues of unequal pay and poor treatment of Black soldiers. Later, he met with President Andrew Johnson on the right of Black peopl e to vote. In the late 187o's, Douglass opposed the movement of many Southern Bla cks to tlie Midwest to form all-Black towns, urging 'Blacks to remain whe r e they were and fight for equality. In time, Douglass gained national prominence as a statesmc.n and became world renowned. In 1872, he was nominated for Vice President of the United States as Victori a Woodhull's running mate on the Equal Rights Party ticket, even though he did not attend the meeting or campaign for the position. Furthermore, Douglass was appointed as a United States Marshal of the District of Columbia, in 1877 and as the Consul General to the Republic of Haiti (1889 to 1891) During the 1888 Republican Nation'al Convention, Douglass gave a rousing speech that resulted in his becoming "the first Black to receive a vote for President of the United States during a major party's roll call vo te." Douglass received one vote from the state of'' Kentucky. In 1892, the Haitian goveniment appc)Uifoo him as its commissioner to the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition. While at the Exposition, Douglass met Black poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, and helped him find employment as a clerk, also arranging for Dunbar's public poetry recitals. Secondly, Douglass collaborated with Ida B. Wells to organize a boycott of the 1893 Exposition and wrote a pamphlet "Reasons Why the Colored American is not In the World's Columbian I Continued On Next Page I

"We were fortunate to receive this mini-grant because it will allow us to educate, and heighten aware ness oflllV/AIDS testing and prevention. People think that because they are non-drug users or heterosexual that they cannot get the disease. That is simply not true. because some teenagers feel that if they are involved in oral sex that they are not sexually active. However, what they don't know is that they can con tract HIV through oral sex," she said. Ms. Cole said two of the reasons why the epidemic is taking a toll on African American women is because of not getting tested early and not receiving treatment once diagnosed. She also said that professional women are also at risk of contracting the disease. "I was able to get some money from a friend, but his 17 -year-old daughter, Jessica and her brother went out and raised $390. God is good." Ms. Green said she doesn't know the young man being held for her son's murder. "What I do know is drugs and greed are behind Cedric's death. "I tried to teach Cedric how to protect his sister and two brothers. I think his death is part of the way things go in the streets." Ms. Green said she doesn't blame herself for what. happened to Cedric, but she said she believes he was trying to change. "He was trying to get back into school.

Local Mother Upset over Son's Reported Gang Association BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Harriet Doster is still try ing to deal with the pain of the death of her nephew, Kwane Doster. Although an arrest was made in Kwane's murder, the charges were later dropped the suspect released. In the midst of all this, Ms. Doster has been trying to find answers for how her son was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison on drug charges. Her son, Durwood Gwyn, 33, was charged in February 2008 with several drug charges. However, according to Ms. Doster, the charges were referred over to federal jurisdiction that in her son's lengthy sentence. "His charges were enhanced when the decision was made to change his drug charges from state to federal. "I think some deal was made or a favor granted. Durwood was arrested by Tampa Police and he does have prior drug charges. But, I don't think it warranted the sentenced he received." Ms. Doster believes that the reason her son's case was given over to the federal government is because of his alleged gang affiliation. "My son was not a part of any gang. That was assumed HARRIET DOSTER because he knew some guys who were part of a gang.

Ms. Doster said she's in favor of helping others create a petition to submit to the government, asking for legis lation to end this kind of sen tencing. "When you lock up a young Black man for 21 years on drug charges and let a white guy go for doing the same thing, you quickly see what the plan is. "If we don't speak up, this will keep happening. The government will do whatever it wants to show that they are getting drugs off the street. What I want to know is what are they doing to keep drugs out of the coun try?" Ms. Doster said she hasn't given up efforts to get her son's sentence reduced, and hopes that she and others are successful in getting a bill passed to end Mandatory Minimum Sentencing.

Sports Patriots Safetv Harrison Retires RODNEY HARRISON FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -Two-time Pro Bowl safety Rodney Harrison announced his retirement on Wednesday, saying he is through hitting quarterbacks after a 15-year career for the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers. "I'm done," he said in a conference call with reporters. "And I'm very much at peace with that. Football has been good to me; I worked hard and I played hard." The 36-year-old Harrison holds the NFL record for defensive backs with 30-1/2 sacks; he also has 34 interceptions, making him the only player to have at least 30 of each. But the numbers only. rtell part of the story about a player who had a reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the league -and one of the dirtiest, too. "People have called me a dirty player. I'm a very passionate player," Harrison said. "I also understand that this is not volleyball. This is a very violent, physical game, and if you hit someone in the mouth, they're not going to be your friend. That's what the game offootball is."

Steinberi said Marshall received a letter from commissioner Roger Goodell _clearing him but als o cau t ioning him to steer clear of trouble Magic's Howard Donates 20K And New Shoes To Kids DWIGHT HOWARD Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard took some local kids shopping Thursday afternoon at the Mall at Millenia. First Howard gave the Boy's and Girl's club of Central Florida a check for 20 thousand dollars, then went shoe shopping with 50 members of the Pine Hills Club, giving each kid a 100 dollar gift card to spend on new shoes. Unlike many charity events involving players, this shop ping spree was not organized by the team or NBA but instead planned entirely by Howard and his business people Last week Howard was named the Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award for the 'third year. ., :::XJ c Orlando Mauic Plavers Have Pricev Homes c.. c: z m 9' 1\) 0 SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -The Orlando Magic left for Los Angeles on Tuesday for Game 1 against the Los Angeles Lakers and players like Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis are turning into household names in Orlando. WFTV reporter Daralene Jones set out to see what kind of houses those house hold names live in. Orlando's most famous resident lives in the most expensive home in Seminole County. Dwight Howard's $7.7 million home has a custom built spa, an elevator and he may soon add a bowling alley. Kristin Mazza is one of a handful of realtors who sell multi-million dollar homes to people like Howard and his teammates. Realtors told Eyewitness News that Howard's decision to build in Longwood is attracting more athletes and celebrities to Seminole County. In fact, golfer Chris DiMarco just built a home three doors down. "The price per square foot up this way is going to be a little more affordable. Not that that's going to be a huge precursor to one of these athletes," Mazza said. Most of the other Magic players live in Orange County.

The Bills' high-profile receiver's search for a place to live in the Buffalo area has hit a snag after Owens said he was denied a chance to rent a home in Orchard Park because of the potential "drama" he might bring to the neighborhood. Owens first announced z what happened late fii Tuesday night by posting a ...J message on his Twitter .com S site.' The message read that he's "tripping about resiW dents" who won't rent a home to him_because they z "[don't] want any drama [in] their neighborhood!! C LOL!!! Wow!!." a: 0 ...J lL. Owens then went into further detail about his search --describing the snub as no big deal --following a voluntary minicamp practice Wednesday. "They didn't want me to rent this spot because of the extra or added attention that I may bring," said Owens, who was informed of the news after a real estate agent and his bodyguard viewed the property. Referring to his real estate agent, Owens added, "In her words, she said, 'Drama.' I thought it was funny." Perhaps, Owens added, the owners aren't Bills or T.O. fans. The place in question is a six-bedroom home at. 1 Deer Rim in Orchard Park that lists for $489,397. It's also available for rent and close to Ralph-Wilson Stadium. Real estate agent Bob Wozniak disputed. Owens' complaint. "I don't know how it all got started," said Wozniak, who added that his clients are more than willing to have Owens tour the house. "He's got the key to the city," Wozniak said, referring to Owens receiving the key to Buffalo last month. "I'd like to give him a key to buy a house."

Cole, Presid en t Tampa Chapter of the Nationa l Coalition of 100 Black Women Local Collector Finds Rare NAACP Belt Buckle Ronnie Moorer stands beside a display table at the NAACP Centennial Ban-quet last month. The NAACP belt buckle, dated 1959, was displayed. (Photograph courtesy of Donald V. Stokely, Jr.). BY IRIS B. HOLTON City Editor For several years, Ronnie Moorer has collected artifacts that display African American history. But, in April 2009, Moorer came across a NAACP Belt Buckle engraved with the year 1909. I started paying more attention to things after I found the NAACP m agazines. Jt depends on where you that you might d,iscover something of historical value." While some of the items Moorer has found may have some ,monetary value., he is concerned about preserving the items for future genera tions. He came across the belt buckle while on an auction house on the Internet in April. When he saw the belt buckle, he decid ed to enter a bid and his was accepted. He recalls it took about a week for the belt buckl e to arrive from Scottsdale, Arizona. "When I talked to the guy that owned it, I learned that he worked at a scrap medal place and saw the box. It was about to be destroyed and he rescued it. He said he felt someone would like to have this important piece of histo ry." An artist by trade, Moorer said he keeps the item!! lie ,1 acquires at a secured location until he is asked to display them. And for those who may interested-in collectors, he said !fou just need to be in the right place at the right time. Moorer has acquired sev. eral items of interest during his travels. An artist by trade, he came across a collection of mag azines published by the NAACP while the agency was in its infancy. Known as "The Crisis," some of the maga zines he has acquired are con sidered rare and hard to find. Additionally, he has other items of interest ranging from statUes, figurines, coins slave shackles, and pendants.

Her son has been in and out of prisons for more than a "My son is mentally chal lenged, and has been since he was born. Not one time was this taken into consideration when he was sentenced. "If that's not bad enough, it appears no one in the prison system is capable of seeing the mental breakdown of young men and women who are serv ing time." Ms. McCroy said mentally challenged lawbreakers are railroaded in and out of prison, because they aren't give1.1 the help they need. "All they do is keep locking them up and-that makes the situation worse. I consider it cruel and unjust punishment, and I'm seeking someone who is honorable and believes in fair play. It's obvious the courts are failing to dig deeper in these kind of cases." Ms. McCroy said she's trying more to bring attention to this problem, than trying to get her son an attorney. "I would like to get a pro bono attorney to help me, but I think it's more important that I speak out on this prob lem. "We are in an era of public defenders telling their clients to accept plea deals when no consideration is given to their innocence or state of mind. All you become in that system is a folder of information, not a human being." Ms. McCroy wants to appeal to elected officials, both local and nationally, and hopes that even the highest courts will look into this problem and come up with solutions. "A lot of these men and women are damaged goods when they enter prison. The prison environment only makes that condition worse, a:nd when they are released, it's no wonder some of them find their way back in prison." Ms. McCroy said she's fed up and wants help, not just for her son, but all the young men and women in prison suffering from mental disabilities.

Moses replied to God, "Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel (vs. 11)?

Health News More Talking, More Problems: cell Pho,ne Elbow' Damages Nerves I f your p inkie and ring fingers tingle or feel numb, you might not want to pick up that cell phone to call the doctor. Too much cell phone use can lead to overextending nerves, causing what doctors call "cell phone elbow." When that happens, the advice is simple: Switch hands before it gets worse. People who have this con dition, called cubital tunnel syndrome, can feel weakness in their hands and have diffi culty opening jars or playing musical instruments. Constant cell phone use could "stress out the ulnar nerves," said Dr. Leon Benson, an orthopedic surgeon and spokesman for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. The ulnar nerve, which travels through the forearm and branches into the hand, can become weakened and scarred after being stretched repeatedly. While the nerves are designed for stretching, "it's not normal to be in a position to be stretched for an hour, Benson said. People with se v ere c a se s of cubital tunnel s yndrome, require surgery. But most cases require simple behav ioral changes The condition is not as common as carpal tunnel syndrome, which affects nerves in the wrist This doesn't mean that cell phone use is dangerous Bending the elbow tighter than 90 degrees for an extended period of time will stretch the ulnar nerve by 8 to 15 percent, Evans said. The remedies are simple. *Avoid activities that require the elbow to be bent tighter than 90 degrees. *Fix workstations so the elbows aren't overly flexed. *Don't lean on your elbows for an extended period of time . Reseatchers say regular, physical attivity can deplete the body of magnesium, causing people to feel sluggish and weak.

Reports earlier today that the rapper-actress has been blasting the alleged Rihanna-beater with some emotionally charged and strongly worded tweets. "He's guilty until proven innocent and no man should ever raise a hand to a woman," one of the tweets says. "I'm so sick of people kissin' his ass." Problem is Eve isn't a member of Twitter Nation. "Eve doesn't Twitterever!" "It is not her who tweeted about Chris Brown."

On such hits as "Bo Diddley," "Hey Bo Diddley," "Say Man" and "Who Do You Love, Diddley created a staccato, second-line-style beat D? that became an intrinsic co -part of rock's foundation. Diddley's array of inventions included his trademark, square-shaped Gretsch guitar (three mod els ofwhich are now manufactured by Fender) and a variety of effects tbat are commonplace today. h: In the wake of his passing, those who guided his:_-, career n?w want to that D1ddley's legacy or r remains vital and potent. d Leading this effort r r Margot Lewis and Faith 9 Fusillo of Talent Source Lewis had been Diddley's agent since the early and became his manager in 1992. Fusillo stepped up at that time as Diddley's business manager. The two oversee an estate that includes four children, 15 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and three great-greatgrandchildren. "We want to perpetuate his legacy and make sure he gets his due in the. world of popular music and popular culture;" Fusillo says. "We really believe (Diddley) is an American original, just like Marilyn Monroe or James Dean. I don't think he got that due ing his lifetime. So we're exploring all kinds of ways to take (Diddley) into the 21st century. He's still so well-thought-of today, we need to make sure that 50 years froin now he's still considered an American icon."

Kanve West's 'Paranoid' Video Director Talks leak, Casting Rihanna If anyone knows just how much Kanye West cares about his music videos, it's Nabil Elderkin. The pho tographer and director has been working on 'Ye's "Paranoid" video around the clock since a rough version of the clip leaked online recently. "That wasn't even an old version," a sleep-deprived Elderkin told MTV News "That wasn t even the video. It was just a bunch of footage, like a timeline type of thing to show the idea That was pre-rough cut Elderkin said he just submitted the final version to West on Friday afternoon (May 29) The version that appeared online featured an opening with West, then guest star Rihanna appeared in a bedroom scene. Later, the singing beauty was posing onscreen with the camera centered on her, then she appeared in a KANYEWEST car-chase type of scene. West, as one can imagine, was upset that an unfinished version leaked and took to his blog to clear things up. "It hurts me to see the old and very wrong version of the 'Paranoid' video get leaked over the Net while I was on an 11-hour flight and couldn't do anything about it," he wrote in his characteristic all-caps style. oer Jam Rapstar' Video Game Coming This Year Wonder how you stack up against Jay-Z, Mos Def. and Dr. Dre?

Entertainment 50 Cent, Eminem On Relationship With Dr. Ore: 'We Understand Our Positions' 50, EM And DRE Two-thirds of the infamous "Three-Headed Monster" were out in New York this week: Eminem appeared on BET's "106 & Park" and brought out GUnit General 50 Cent as a surprise guest to help share the triumph of Em's Relapse debuting at #1 on the Billboard albums chart. "I think we're absolutely in a great space, considering his project is where it's at, #1. And it's working," 50 said about the "monster" that is Eminem and Dr. Dre. "Until they find a collaboration of artists that work together as well as we work together, I don't think we got issues." 50, said he and the two guys that signed him work so well because everybody knows their I roles. "one of the most impor-: tant portions of our rela7 tionships is 'us standing our positions," Fif explained. "I'm like King Kong when I'm by myself, and when [me, Em and Dre] come back, come together, I'm actually the smallest person in our cir cle. I get a chance to be down to earth." So if Fif is the hairy beast that terrified the natives of Skull Island as well as the visitors of the Empire State Building, Em says he's the creature that blew fire and stomped through Japan. "Godzilla? Maybe Godzilla," Em smiled about what creature he might be. "I don't know. I think the best thing about the combination of me, 50 and Dre is that we take criticism from each other, we_ listen to input. We're always trying to do better." So where was Dr. Dre? Maybe working. Both 50 and Slim Shady assured the live audience and the fans at home the legendary producer's longawaited Detox album is well under way, and on its way. -"1 heard eight records," 50 revealed. He also said that Dre has just under a dozen songs finished.

Amateur video of Pit onstage in Colorado recently hit the Net, showing the rapper punching out a fan. The scene starts with Pit entertaining the audience, when a man in the crowd started throwing money on the stage. Pit pulled the man onto the stage and he started throwing money in Pit's face, and Pitbull immediately knocked t\le guy down with a punch to the face. "They don't show the whole clip of what happened," Pit said of the video. "Before the song 'Bojangles,' I play a whole set and I only get three breaks. I was going into 'Bojangles'. and this mutha--a had already made it rain, like, three times. He threw a gang of money in the air and I was scooting the money, giving it to the cro-wd.

"I'm bringing him onstage to say, 'Look, this the clown that's gonna f-up your show. I'm getting rid of him. I'm letting y'all know right now. Don't nobody else make it rain.'

Jimi Hendrix's -Roadie savs Guitarist' s Manager Murdered Him Jimi Hendrix's former roadie James '"Tappy" Wright has claimed that the late guitar legend was murdered by his manager, Michael Jeffrey In his n e w book Rock Roadie, Wright claims that Jeffrey told him he plied Hendrix with pills and alcohol in order to kill him and claim on the guitarist's life insurance. Hendrix died in September 1970. His body was found in a room at London's Samarkand Hotel booked by Monika Dannemann, whom Hendrix had known for a matter of days. Jeffrey allegedly made the confession to Wright in 1971, two years before he was killed in a plane crash. Writing of the admission, Wright says: I can still hear that conversation, see the man I'd known for so much of my life, his face pale, hand clutching at his glass in sudden rage ." Jeffrey is quoted by Wright as telling him: "I was in London the night of Jimi's death and together with some old friends .. we w ent 'round to Monika's hote l room, got a handful of pill s and stuffe d them into his mouth .. the n poure d a JIMI HENDRIX few bottles of red wine deep into his windpipe.

"I had to do it. Jimi was worth much more to me dead than alive," Jeffrey is quoted as telling Wright. "That son of a b*tch was going to l eave me. If I lost him, I'd lose everything." At the time of Hendrix's death, a coroner recorded an ope n verdict, stating that the cause was "barbi turate intoxication and inhalation ofvomit."

Washington, who just turned 20, admitted to her partner that she had sex with another man within that fiveday window -the double conc e ption The mystery began to be solved when he r partner, 44year-old James Harrison, became concerned that Justin and Jordan, born only 7 minutes apart, looked so different. A paternity test followed. When he discovered that Justin wasn' t his son, Harrison said, "I was hurt, torn apart -didn't know what the next move was gonna be," Harrison said in a taped NBC News segment. Nonetheless, he's loved both boys the same since then. "I raised him [Justin] from a baby all the way to now. He knows me as his father, and I know him as my son," Harrison explained. The boys, meanwhile, know each other as brothers "They're growing in the same environment," Washington said, "and they're getting to know each other and play with each other." w ::::) ....

Hatchett was in child support court again last His name appeared on the dockett 11 times in one day, representing 15 of his children. Hatchett says he wasn't out to set a record. He says he never intended to have this many children, "It just happened." He fathered the children by at least 11 different women and he claims all DESMOND HATCHETI of the mothers knew about his large family. The children range in age from newborn to 11 years The question Knox County officials now face is how.to support all these children. Hatchett works a minimum wage job and by law the state can only take so% of his pay check for child support. By the time that money is split .. 21 ways, some of the mothers get less than $2 per month. That leaves the taxpayers footing a large portion of the bill for these children.

However, when Gonzalez gets closer, she points out the outline of a face with eyes, a nose and a beard. She said her stepdaughter was the first one to find it. I had just cleaned the mirror the night before and it was spot less, said Raquel Martinez.

:::0 AN OPEN LEI I ER TO THE COMMUNITY May 27,2009 Here is an update on our most ambitious project to date: The redevelopment of the former Central Park Village. As much lnforma tion as possible has been included with the hope that you will have a total view, from our perspective, regarding the impact this project will have on our total community, as well as answer and correct some of the misinformation that is drifting about from people who are not involved or no longer involved in the project. You are encouraged to please allow the Tampa Housing Authority to be your first point of contact for In quiries or specific questions relating to the progress of this project. In the Beginning Central Park Village was a 60 + year old public housing community that was determined to b9 severely distressed due to age, lack of modem amenities such as air conditioning, inadequate parking, environ mental contaminants; such as lead based paint and asbestos, unit designs prohibiting the provision of handicapped accessible units; mold and mildew resulting from construction materials and poor natural light and ventilation, among others. The residents of the old Central Park Village deserved better and together we were able to form a partner ship that enSured every resident would indeed receive better housing. This was due, in part, to the strong resident leadership exhibited by Mary Williams and Ruth Dewberry, President and Vice president of the Central Park Resident Council. Working together, the THA was able to develop a plan for the relocation of residents, demolition of the outdated buildings and the development of modern replacement units on the same site. Presently, these three actions have been accomplished and we are working toward building back new affordable housing in a modem mixed-use community that will provide an unparalleled opportu nity for residents and exhibit a shining example to the whole country that affordable housing can't just exist but rather, thrive alongside market-rate housing. The Relocation Plan The Tampa Housing Authority successfully relocated more than 400 families from Central Park between July 2006 and July 2007 adhering strictly to the guidelines set forth by the Uniform Relocation Act dictated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Approximately 70% of the families chose partici pation in the Section 8 program as their relocation choice and were issued vouchers to lease comparable units available within the private market. Additionally, 30% of families chose to remain in public housing and were transferred to other THA owned public housing communities throughout the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County. Each resident was provided relocation assistance that included payment for actual moving costs and related reasonable relocation expenses The 'Training and lnb'oduction to Other Housing Opportunities Prior to relocation, the Tampa Housing Authority conducted close to 100 meetings held both in the morn ings and in the evenings on site at Central Park Village to allow everyone a chance to be briefed and to ensure that their concerns regarding the relocation process were addressed as well as detailed explana tions regarding the operation of the Housing Choice Voucher program. Residents were introduced to the social service facilities close to their new selected site; they were also introduced to the schools that were in close proximity to their new housing choice. Additionally, each resident was assigned a case manager that worked one on one with them to determine their housing needs and preferences, explain relocation benefits and services, relocation schedule, advise on comparable replacement dwellings, Pf'9VJded a cur rent list of available Section 8 housing throughout the metropolitan area as well as provided transportation to view them. Additionally a self-sufficiency planned was also mapped out to help them achieve their set goals. '-' Development of Tracking Document and Right to Return Once Development Is Completed This Important step provided the Tampa Housing Authority with a tool that tracked eachresident, by name, to the rel ocated area whether in the City, County, or to another state. We committed to provide every resident with a comprehensive program of supportive services for up to 5 years post relocation and we are keeping with our word. Former central park residents are taking advantage of a vast array of programs such as job training, business development, life skills, counseling services, day care and transporta-. ,. tion assistance, educational classes and tuition free educational programs, motivational series, computer Incentive programs and others. This program of supportive services was not a requirement by HUD or any':' other agency but was a program which the THA felt would assist residents in gaining self sufficiency. Every relocated Central Park Village resident was promised in the relocation plan, a guaranteed right to:: return to the new site, once developed. The only stipulation to this guaranteed right of return was that resi-,_ dents maintain lease compliance from the point in which they left the site up until they applied to return to"'., : the new community. It is important to note that no past infractions, such as credit history, late rent pay-:,;;: ments or lease violations would prevent a former resident from returning to the new community. This In: eludes past criminal convictions. Once again, as long as they maintained lease compliance during period of relocation (from when they relocated off-site up until the point the applied to return to the new de: velopmE!I'l1), every resident who wished to return would be able to do so. Master Plan Development and Partnership with Bank of America A development partnership was formed between THA and the Bank of America Community Development Corporation to prepare a master plan depicting the future redevelopment of the site into a mixed income/mixed-use community. We are very appreciative of the solid, sustaining support we have received from the Bank of America; we could not have asked for a better partner. Their commitment to this project has been unwavering and steadfast. The residential program calls for the development of 794 rental apartment units to be located throughout five buildings; 667 will be affordable to persons earning below 60% area median Income and the remaining 127 units will be market-rate. The plan will Include a new middle school, grocery store, office building, retail stores, restaurants; an African American History museum will occupy the restored St. James Episcopal Church, a hotel, market rate housing and a renovated Perry Harvey Sr. Park. We recognize that this is a very ambitious plan; but it is one to which we are committed to complet ing. Wrthin the coming weeks THA will be submitting an application to the U.S. Department of HUD for infra structure funding sufficient to develop new roads, storm sewers, waterlines, electricity and lighting to support the development plan. ABOUT ENCORE The former Central Park Village site is being name "Encoren to reflect upon the rlch history of the site dating back to the days of a thriving, vibrant Central Avenue. "Eticoren, refers to the fact that we wish to bring back the presence of a rich and storied past of the site; steeped in music legends such as Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Chubby Checker, James Brown and many others who at one time played in the music halls and theatres of Central Avenue. The main boulevard through the new site will be named Ray Charles Boulevard and one of the first three buildings will be named The Ella, after Ella Fitzgerald. Look for signage and banners that will be going up along the perimeter of the site that will document the project progress and provide you with more up-to date information regarding the construction schedule, job and contracting opportunities to help rebuild the site; as well as pictures and images of what's planned. Job Opportunities This redevelopment project is expected to generate more than 4,000 total construction jobs over the build-out period commencing once funding is received to begin infrastructure improvements. In addition, we estimate that more than 950 permanent jobs could be created once the new community is built out. As we continue with the implementation of this rather innovative and exemplary project, we ask that you remain properly informed on all aspects of this project by allowing the Tampa Housing Authority to be your first point of contact regarding concerns or inquiries regarding the progress made on this project. In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out a new website that will be continually updated with the latest news and information on the development "Encore". OurTHA website, www.thafl.com, will provide a link to take you directly to the new site. As always, we remain committed to "Building a World class community, One Family and One Neighbor hood at a Time". Sincerely, Jerome D.
