As her co-chair, Ms. Best selected her former Aesthetics and Beautification chairper son, Denese MeteyeJames. Ms. Best said it felt good to get he support of the former members. ''First, I need to thank Molbert Scrivens for even nomiCl nating me to repeat.

I'm excited they put this kind of trust in me, but it s unnerving that a former sub-committee leader is now a co-chairperson. ''I'm honored Ms. Best has this kind of trust in me, and I hope I will live up to her expec tations, as well as my own. This was totally unexpected Ms. Best said during her first two years, she wanted to create more awareness to the community as to what the ETCRP is and let them know of their availability. ..... to serve first term as ETCRP Co-Chairperson I was trying to mak e sure everyone knew we were in this together, and I tired to use every resource available to get that done. I'm still committed to doing that and this time we want to see the ETCRP take a more leadership role in the community to get things done." The ETCRP consists of 13 neighborhood associations and 10 crime watch groups in a 7-mile radius, making it one of the largest CRA's in the city. Ms. Best said she'll con tinue to work closely with East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson and the city staff, to get all the jobs taken care of and put in perspective en I----------------------------------------------------------cc ::J a. z i= w ...J ...J ::J m Citv Council Approves Funding For East Tampa Program I ...J w z i= z w en <( c a: 0 ...J LL. On Thursday, the Tampa City Council voted to approve the funding for the East Tampa Far;ade Improvement Project. The East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership had put aside $8oo,ooo in Tax In' crement Finance (TIF) dollars for the project. According to Ed Johnson, City of Tampa East Tampa De velopment Manager, they ex pect to start making applications available to area businesses in the next two weeks . 22nd Street, 29th Street, 34th Street, and 15th Street can get applica tions for up to $50,00 in a matching grant The only dissenting vote was from City Councilwoman Mary Mulhern, who voted "no" on the project, because she felt it could have been ad ministered by City of Tampa Economic Development Ad ministrator Mark Huey. In stead, the project will be administered by Neighborhood Lending Partner, whose fee N will be paid with Tax IncreW ment Finance (TIF) dollars (!) from all 9 CRAs. Ernest Coney, Economic ERNEST CONEY Development Chairman for the ETCRP, said he's very excited -about the opportJinities the program will bring to the busi nesses of east Tampa. "The East Tampa CRA is in vesting more ($8oo,ooo) than the other CRA 'this reflects our vision of supporting exist ing businesses and trying to at tract more." Coney said a committee will approve the individual projects on a one-on-one basis. ''I'm not sure if each busi ness will decide who does their far;ade work, or if that will be done in advance "But, just imagine 22nd Street being a walkable area with sidewalk tables and chair, cafes, and places where you can stop and just relax We want 22nd Street and other areas to be a place where you can go from the sidewalk di rectly into a business; like an outdoor mall." .Coney said they expect to get started quickly with the project, now that the city has given its approval.

I anSwers To An Urban Legend I He was 5-foot-9, not 6-foot-one. His final 136 pounds was a far cry from a purported 98 pounds, soaking wet. He had tattoos that eyebrows, thickened lips and darkened a receding hairline. He had tons of scars, seemingly from the top of his head to the knobs of his His lungs were iittlamed. But his heart was strong. Such was the coroner's report on the immortal Michael Jackson, a report that would seem to lay millions of lies and rumors to rest. But did it really? As Wi,th the sagas of Elvis Presley, Rudolph Valentino and many others before and after them, death does not stop conjecture. What with Michael Jackson's father his estranged son met with foul-play, and given the bloodthirsty appetites of news rags around the world,. the bones of relatively young Michael Jackson may be able to rest in peace, anytime soon. And that's a good thing. about it this way. Given the ins and outs of possibilities, might we ever really know who or what killed him? We know, but will we ever know? The answer is "No. For, we really don't want to know!" President Obama AndTheiOC By now, it's old news. All the actors have gone home. The site of the 2016 Olympics game will NOT be in Chicago. It will NOT be in Tokyo or Madrid. Copenhagen has told us it will be in Rio de Janeiro. To the citizens of that great city, we send our hearty: congratulations. But we must admit, there is a lump in our throats. Everyone remembers Beijing. .how that so-called "Forbidden City," cleaned up its smog, stretched out its arms and set a table for the world, which historians are still speechless to describe and analyze. Chicago had ,dreams of duplicatbiglif not, doubling or tripling that feat. So did Tokyo, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro. But only one city and one nation could wear the mantle of the five multi-colored. hoops. ... Chicago tried mightily. One of America's most popular presidents -a young man compared to world:-class rock stars -he and his eloquently poised and beautiful wife, as well as the mayor of that Midwest city vied for the title. But the 2016 Olympics in Chicago might as well .have been the 2010 Olympics in Tampa. For, both were not to be. The question is "Why?" Probably, historians will answer andre-answer the question "w}ly .didn't Chicago receive the go-ahead nod from the supposedly bipartisan IOC?" Given the impact and impetus it would have meant for America's first Black president and for America itself who was trying so mightily to reassert itself before the eyes of the world, this would have been a 3 of life and promise to the world. Instead, the kiss was stillborn and the promise for our 44th President would have to wait for some other venue. No doubt, his detractors will be waiting at the airport when he returns home. "But at least, he tried! And fo that, we salute our President, his lovely wife and the people of Chicago! The Tulsa Race Riot: An American Trauedv E ven though I had visit ed Tulsa, Oklahoma in the past, four years ago when I read about five Tulsa Race Riot survivors testifying before the Reparations Coordinating Committee and the Congressional Black Caucus, I wanted to know more details about the inci dent. Turns out, on May 31, 1921, 35 blocks of the allBlack thriving and affluent Greenwood community in Tulsa, Oklahoma were burned to the ground by a mob of thousands of white men. Leaving an estimated 37 to 300 people dead in its wake, the riot began as a result of a Black man, Dick Rowland, being accused of attacking a white female elevator opera tor, Sarah Page. What actually happened was Rowland entered a public elevator in the Drexel Building and stepped on the elevator operator's foot, throwing her off balance. She screamed when Rowland reached out to keep her from falling. Of course, a Black man touching a white woman in 1921 was traditionally pun ishable by death by lynching or a near-death flogging. Thus, Rowland was arrested the next day and held in the A preacher recently told me that an individual cannot and will not die as long as God has some work for that person to do here on earth. I heard the Reverend and I didn't hear him. The other night I woke up in the middle of the night with the subject ringing in my head. As best I can remember, I was not dreaming or thinking about anything. I was just sleeping. This article had already been written in my mind. I believe there must be a whole lot of truth to that statement. Think with me if you will. Ask yourself is there really any such thing as a mir acle? Or is the miracle just God doing His work? A person I know fell 30 feet and landed on some cold hard steel. He is still walking around in his right mind and courthouse jail for trial. Newspaper headlines reported the woman had been attacked by Rowland and a lynch mentality swept the city. Reported deep-seated preju dices among whites, rampant crime and vice in Tulsa h:td already bred an atmosph',e re of contempt and disregard for the law. Jealousy by whites of Blacks who lived affluent l,lfestyles in the Greenwood com munity was well-known. All of these conditions played a part in the riots. So, that night, when a r#ob of white men gathered outside the courthouse threaten ing to lynch Rowland were confronted by 75 or rnt>re armed Black veteransand men who had marched t9 ''the courthouse to offer their' vices to the sheriff to J'(elp protect Rowland, the was set. When a member of the mob attempted to disarm of the Black men, a fight broke out and the gun When the fight was over, three Black men and 12 white men lay dead. Early in the mornin$, a mob estimated at 10,000 marched on Greenwood and burned, bombed and looted all of the homes and business-attributes that fact that he still lives is to do the work of God. Others have fallen 6 feet and died as a result. Some people get shot in the head with a 357 magnum and live. Still, others get shot in the arm with a 22 pistol and die .as a result of the bullet wound. Why? Some people get in an auto mobile accident in a 30-mile per hour crash and get fatally injured. Some people get involved in an auto accident at speeds upward of 70-miles per hour and live to talk about it Is this God's work or not? When we say God has some work for individuals here on earth, it may mean to preach, but it could just as easily mean something else It could mean that God wants you to teach to be a role model for children, to be a helping hand e s in the di stric t. Blac k s reported that the mob u se d airplanes with bombs, machine guns and gasolin e to destroy their community, in spite of Black World War I veterans forming battle lines, digging trenches and using their combat skills. Many Blacks fled to the Osage Mountains and to neighboring towns. Reportedly, the accurate number of deaths and injuries were deflated in the interest of Tulsa's image. However, survivors esti mate at least so whites and 200 Blacks died that night, some burned alive in their homes Grave diggers stated some Blacks were dumped in holes without coffins An inquiry into the incident was held, however, official report documents of the inquiry mysteriously disap peared. Only the memories of the members of the mob or the victims left to report what Rowland was never charged with a crime and it took more than 10 years to rebuild the area and get residents back in their homes. In 1997, The Tulsa Race Riot Commission was formed to investigate the riot, review past archeological investiga tions and historical findings, and proposals for reparations. In 2005, with the help of attorneys, political figures and historians, 97 surviving victims appealed to the Reparations Coordinating Committee and the Congressional Black Caucus for damages, loss of property and lives of family members during the riot. Harambee! for the poor or the elderly; it could mean going to prison and being a role model or inspiration for other inmates God s work is so broad and inclusive He uses all kinds of people to do His work. Many times those who are called to do God's work resist Him and they do all they can not to hear His calLBut He keeps you alive and keeps finding ways to bring those people into the fold. People die at birth while oth. ers live to So or 90 years old. Why do some people live longer tha n others? It is because some complete God's intended purpose for them before others? Is it really true that one will live as long as God has a purpose for them on earth? When you do God's work and you finally die, I have been told that it is God calling you to join Him in heaven so that you can reap your reward and to rest from your worldly work If this is true, it explains why people die at different times and from different causes. There are no miracles, only God' s work.

With second-year pro Josh Johnson under cen-ter, The Bucs raced out to a 10-0 lead on the Redskins Even the much maligned Gaines Adams got in on the act with a pair of outstanding plays during the first series by the defense. But it all went for naught as th e Bucs collapsed in the second hal f and gave the Redskins a 16-13 victory.

BY TED TAYLOR The Wildcats of Bethune..!a Cookman finally played W Wyattbone ball, but it was not enough to keep the claws of z the Morgan State Bears from W stomping them at Municipal en Stadium in Daytona Beach on C Saturday afternoon A crowd Q: of 3,428 finally saw improve-0 ment in the running game but it was not enough as the ,... Bears came out on top 24-13. B-CU was able to gain 283 yards rushing compared to as low as 14 yards in an earlier game this season. Also, quar terback Maurice Francois had no interceptions, but a lost fumble and multiple penalties were critical. Morgan received the open ing kickoff and when they were unable to move, the punt pinned B-CU at its own s-yard line. On first down Francois was unable to han dle the snap resulting in a fumble recovery in the endzone by Morgan defensive end Bricen Tate. The point after kick by Sha'Ka Miller was good for an early 7-0 lead. When the 'Cats had to punt, Morgan used a s-play, 77 yard drive in 1:54 to increase the lead to 14-0 on a 1-yard run by Domanick West. W The lead was upped to 17-0 on a 48-yard field goal by long distance kicker Kemar Scarlett early in the second quarter. B-CU gave some hope to its disappointed fans just before halftime when Francois cut the lead to 17-7 on a scamper from a yard out. The Wildcat defense held the rest of the way to preserve cutting into the lead. In the third quarter, the teams traded punts until B-CU embarked on a long drive beginning on its 4-yard line. At the 4 :17 mark, Courtney Keith scored on an 11-yard jaunt, but Kory Kowalski missed the extra point. The s-play drive was highlighted b y a 6o-yard run by Fred McCaskill. With the lead cut to 1 7-13 and momentum on its side, the stadium began to buzz Howe v er, on its n e xt poss ession, quarterback Carlton Jackson led a 6-play 6oyard drive that added another touchdown on a 19-yard reception by Edwin Baptiste two minutes later. Neither team could mount any offense in the fourth quarter The winless 0-4, 0-3 Wildcats travel to Dover, Delaware next Saturday for a date against the 1-2 1-1 Delaware State Hornets in another Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game. Titans Stand Behind QB Collins KERRY COLLINS The Titans wer e adamant Sunday that Kerry Collins would remain as starter after a 3 7 -17 loss to the Jaguars. A week after strug gling against the New York Jets, Kerry Collins didn't fare much better Sunday as the Tennessee Titans dropped to 0-4. But the Titans, who fin ished the 2008 regular sea son 13-3 before their ouster in the first round of the playoffs, were adamant Collins would remain as starter. "Kerry gives us our best chance to win," coach Jeff Fisher said Sunday after a 37-17 loss to the Jacksonville J a guars. With Vince Yonng as an option off the bench, Collins completed 29 of 48 passes for 284 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions, his fifth and sixth of the season.

Rav lewis Calls Protection 01 Quanerbacks Embarrassing' Rav e n s linebacker Ray Lewis doesn't like the extent to which the league protects quarterbacks. And, after a pair of rough ing-the-pretty-boy penalties kept first-half touchdown drives alive for the Patriots in Sunday's 27-21 win, Lewis has sounded off about the situation "Without totally going off the wall here it's embarrass ing to the game," Lewis said. "That' s not football," Lewis added. "And that's the embarrassing part about it. Two great teams going at it like them go at it. But you can't stop drives like that, you can' t throw flags and say, Oh, you touched the quarterback.' Put flags on RAY LEWIS them. Put a red buzzer on them, so if we touch them, they're down."
