Decision on Gene's Bar, Honkv Tonk Properties Put on Hold EVANGELINE BEST ETCRP Chairperson On Tuesday night at the Cyrus Green Community Center, the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership group held their monthly meeting Of special interes t at this m ee ting was th e future of two properties purch a sed with Tax Increment Finance (TIF) dol lars. Those properties are th e former Gene's Bar site on 22nd Str ee t and the Honky Tonk Bar property on 34th Street and Che lsea East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson, made a presentation to the City Council Thursday to update them on the properties and their suggested future use. Johnson suggested that the best use for the Gene' s Bar property would be to continue acquiring other properties in the area to attract a retail/ commercial developer. "As f a r as a transit center is concerned, HART has commit ted to upgrade their bus stops a lon g the 22nd Street corrid br." No one e l se in attendance had a suggestion for the Gene's Bar property, so it was decided that Johnson's suggestion was the best solution. Johnson suggested the same scenario for the Honky Tonk. However, some other suggestions were made on alternative uses for the proper ty. Johnson said the city is cur. rently in the process of acquir ing 3 residential properties and a commercial property in the ED JOHNSON East Tampa Development Manager area. East Tampa r eside nt Clay Daniels, was adamant about th e n ee d for mor e polic e pr es e nc e in th e area. I know we already hav e a police sub-statio n on 22nd Street, but I think we n eed to put a noth e r on 34th Street a nd Chelsea.

Also dis cusse d was the future of th e Hargr ett Hous e on 22nd Street and Osborne. The h o u se a nd property h as b ee n purchased by Tampa Bay Health Centers, and they hav e acquired stimulus dollars to build a state-of-the-art facility at th a t l ocation. Johnson said it had b ee n suggested that the house b e saved somehow from d e moli tion "If the house had be e n declare d a historic structure, the cost factor wouldn' t b e such an issue. TIF dollars could be used to relocate the house Rather than take TIF dollars from funds set aside for senior housing initiatives, the group decided that salvaging the structure {f> he best suggestion.

Features NAACP President Fights For Rights 01 Communitv BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Mrs. Carolyn Collins, a 30-year resident of the Carver City and Lincoln Gardens com munity and President of the Hillsborough County Branch of the NAACP said, "The concerns of the NAACP are. centered around the rights of the citi zens. The residents deserve, demand and expect the same courtesy and respect from the City Council and the City of Tampa's designated staff that is provided residents on Davis Is land, Culbreath Isles, Bayshore, and other well kept, historical, safe and clean neighborhoods. ... Every neighborhood should call the City Council to stop this dangerous precedent from going forward. This is in viola tion of a type of"environmental justice" for the residents of Carver City and Lincoln Gar dens," Mrs. Collins said Mrs. Collins said it has been a continuous battle to keep the neighborhood free of the unacceptable businesses bordering the main arteries from coming into the neighbor hoods. Last year in a 5-2 vote, City Council approved a request from Joe Redner to open Tampa's Cigar City Brewing, 3924 W. Spruce Street. Last week, Redner was suc cessful in having another tem porary request to operate the microbrewery approved. If it receives final approval, it will have extended hours and can sell beer and wine for con sumption on the premises as well as in sealed packages. Linda Saul-Sena, John Dingfelder, Charlie Miranda, who is the Council rep resentative for Lincoln Gardens and Carver City, and Joseph Caetano approved the re quest. Chairman Thomas Scott and Councilwoman Gwen Miller voted ag alnst it. City Attorney :Chip Fletcher said it is unusu a l for CAROLYN COLLINS President, Hillsborough County Branch NAACP such an establishment to re ceive a temporary approval for the second year. But because the facility wanted extended hours and the right to sell beer and wine on the premises and sealed in containers, it altered the original request. "Usually, once the first year has passed, approval usually goes to permanent approval. It's a land use request and not an individual request." He further stated the city cannot deny the request unless there is substantial and confident evidence that the approval doesn't meet code requirements or that the approval is adverse to public interest. Mrs. Collins said has issued a "Call to Action" and is encour aging residents and others to attend the City Council meeting on Thursday, December 17th.

"We're also looking for other areas to provide a place for young people and seniors.

His decision to drop the world's first atomic bombs on cities of Japan haunted him. Either way he turned, being President of the United States was a job Truman privately admitted, he would gladly have given to another man. No doubt, it will be true for President Barack Obama. The sending of American men and women to fight overseas must unquestionably be the most excruciating task that any American Commander-in-Chief has ever faced. Last week, President Obama felt the fury of his office. Addressing thousands of young cadets at West Point, who would undoubtedly be among the 30,000 troops to be deployed to Afghanistan, America' s 44th Commander in Chief vowed that he would be bringing our men and women home, as of July 2011. His response was warm and enthusiastic, as Pres. Obama promised that he could and would "bring this war to a successful conclusion." Behind his smile there must have loomed a shadow. Behind the eyes of President Barack Obama, as he waded into a crowd of West Point cadets eager to be able to say they shook their President's hand, there must have been a cloud o:f despair, realizing that his decision could indeed, have been the cause of many a young soldier's premature death. It is an unavoidable consequence of taking the office of President of the United States of America. Our young prince of peace has finally gotten his face and conscience inired by the blood of a wartime decision. It will steal his peace of mind. It will cost him his dark brown hair and his good night's sleep. Jobs Stimulus And Black Unemplovment There is a reason, this Christmas, why angels are singing "Hcrltdujah!" President Barack Obama's Job Summits, Jobs and Bailout are coming. And they are coming none toB soon, especially for Black Americans. Indeed, Black in general, hovers more than 22 percent, while unemployment for Black youth is a crashing 50 percent. A year ago, U.S. Department of Labor fi-gures revealed among major race and ethnic groups, we Black Americans had the highest job loss with Black men leading the loss, at 13.4 percent. However, the National Urban League points out, the real state of Black unemployment has been worse than current government figures. Citing a "hidden index" of millions of. Blacks who had become discouraged and stopped looking for work; who had entered the workforce since the recession began and who had never found work, the Urban League estimated the real Black unemployment rate was 22.8 percent. Thus, nearly a year ago, NUL President Marc Morial urged ., .... . President Obama and Congress to insure the inclusion in any job creation plan. No doubt, the heard Morial's cry. Blacks are heavily concentrated in the industries, which were hit the hardest. The majority of jobs lost were in the banking, retailing, customer service and service industries where consumers have cut their spending. Black men were concentrated hi manufacturing construction trades. Thus, we agree with the National Urban League, that any jobs stimulus plan must target Blacks and Black men in HurrvWith Healthcare Retorm I say o ur h ea lth ca r e sys t e m n ee d s to b e r e form e d I a l s o s a y to our l e gisl a to rs: Please hurry Our h e althc a r e sys t e m n ee ds to pro vid e compre hensiv e a nd c ompl e te c o v erage but it mu s t b e aff o rd able.

We are in this healthcare premium crunch with small businesses all across the country Unless insurance reform ''T iger! Tiger! burning bright/ In the forests of the night/ Whas immortal hand or eye/ Could frame thy fearful symmetry?" So wrote William Blake. But our focus is on another tiger ... a Tiger in the wooos We have come to get him ... to hunt him out. And in so doing, we have brought ele phants and hunting dogs to do the job. For, you see we have cov eted this Tiger's blood, ever since he w a s a cub in his moth e r 's arms ... ever since he was a whelp and a dream in his father's eyes. We have watched him and licked our teeth. But this is how it shall be done. We shall bring eleph a nts, each beas t bou ild a nd r i dden by powerful paparazzi, complete with came r as and poison darts for Our dogs win be vicious and relent less tearing at the fabric of everything this Tiger has ever held dear. Indeed, if we could find his f ather's grave, perhaps, we might dig him up to get further scent on this feral be_?st called "Cablinasian! We know what he likes So, we shall bring his favorite delight white and blonde and place her in a cage directly where the Tiger can get her feminine scent. Then we shall wait for the Tiger to show him self, as he has always done And when he does we shall pounce on him and tear him limb from limb! And this is what happened As our elephants thrashed through the underbrush of inquiry, the Tiger showed himself for an instant, having hidden under a .. dense mass of personal accom plishment in the realm of golf He lay perfectly quiet in his lair. Shots were fired. Spears of accusation of adultery were hurled. But the Tiger would not come out. Not even the strong thorns and thistles of public inquiry and .condemnation, which slowed down our main elephants Fox and CNN, seemed to bother this Tiger, in his woods. For, he remained perfectly still and would not return calls or appear at news confe r ences : So, at length, we determined to change our ta c tics Shouting to al! .the preachers, poachers and passers-by to clear out of the tangle of morning news we mounted two other elephants called Kellog s Cornflakes and Wheaties, and we pressed on toward the Tiger A strong wind was blowing towards us, as we directed our to torch the grass of National Enquirer at the far end of the thicket In minutes, the high grass was burning furiously. But lying flat to the ground of continued public and private support, the Tiger, having cho sen his position well, made no sign. The fire soon died, and we feared the momentum of public interest and television coverage :0 c l> t a k es p l ace, m o r e and m o r e s m all busi nesses will find 0 the m se l ves out o f bus in ess.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On November 18, 19, and 20, the Florida Association For Minority Business Enterprise Officials (FAMBEO) held a big meeting in Orlando. Attending the conference were represen tati.ves from city and county MBE programs all over Florida. The vice-president of FAMBEO, Pamela Hart, as well as a few people from the area, left that meeting very concerned about the commitment of Hillsborough County's MBE program, but more specifically the person in charge of the program. Since Spencer Albert left as director of the county's MBE program, a successor was named. Due to budget problems, the MBE program was combined with the Small Business Development Program under the direction of Gene Gray. Gray named Brenda Eighmey to oversee the MBE program. Ms. Hart said she observed Eighmey during the conference, and felt she was very degrading in her responses. "I personally don't think she should be in the position of overseeing that program. She was very indignant and just negative." Ariel Business Group President, Thomas Huggins, said he was on a panel at the meeting as a pre senter. "I didn't hear her comments directly, but I did hear some disgruntled people who were in the meetings. They expressed some concerns, and there are some members of FAMBEO who aren't happy with her position overseeing the MBE program." "The real issue is how the county gutted the program. After Spencer Albert left, no full-time person has been put in his position. That department was gutted and merged into another department where Eighmey was in charge." Tanita Montgomery, MBE Coordinator for Tampa General Hospital, said she was not impressed with Eighmey's commitment, and Frank Cross, who works with the City of Tampa's MBE Program, said Eighmey was not impressed with the group. "Her body language was vety negative. She also said the meeting was a waste of her time. To me, everything about her was negative. She got up and left during a presentation on Affirmative Action .and that was very inappropriate." Eighmey's boss, Gene Gray, said as a result of budget cuts, the MBE program had to be reorganized. "We're wrestling with staffing issues on how the program will be administered. Eighmey has the experience as a former staff member of the MBE program." Board of County Comm'issioners Chairman, Ken Hagan, said he's not aware of any issues or concerns with the MBE Program. "We had to cut about 6oo employees, but I haven't heard of any specific concerns." "Clearly, there have been personnel changes, but no policy changes have taken place." County Administrator, Pat Bean, said they still have a strong a commitment to the MBE program as they've always had. "When we decided we could not afford to bring someone in because of budget cuts, we consolidated for the sake of preservitig the program." At the meeting, Eighmey said she was asking a lot of questions, and perhaps that was perceived as her being negative. "I felt many attending the FAMBEO meeting didn't like me from the minute I walked into the meeting, because I got some strange glares.

Ochocinco was fined $30,000 for briefly donning a mock poncho and a sombrero next to the bench for lowing his touchdown catch during a 23-13 win over Detroit on Sunday. That's $10,000 more than the fine he got for pretending to bribe an official during a game earlier this season. The receiver said Wednesday he's not sure why the amount went up so much.

Barrv Bonds' Son Arrested over Weekend Barry Bonds with his son Nikolai in 2005. The son of baseball home run king Barry Bonds is facing legal troubles of his own after police say he was arrested over the weekend during an argument with his mother. Menlo Park police say 19-year-old Nikolai Bonds was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism and other charges at the home of his mother, Sun Bonds. Police spokeswoman Nicole Acker says Nikolai Bonds was taken into cus tody after allegedly throwing a door knob at his 45-yearold mother. The younger Bonds also allegedly smashed pictures and vases, causing about $400 worth of damage. He was released Saturday night after posting $50,000 bail. It was not known if he had retained an attorney. Sun and Bonds were divorced in 1994.

Entertainment Tiger Woods Is Human TIGER WOODS By SunMan Tiger Woods has managed to raise intense anger among many people in this society. It is not the first time that the young golfer has been in the headlines. We are all aware of the many accomplishments in his ath letic career, however today all the talk about Tiger is dominated by his alleged extra-marital affairs. Plastered all over the media is all of the opinions regarding his personal life that most do not know all that much about. For certain he has been jeered and like many s p_orts celebrities, but he has also been unfairly and maliciously maligned. In this society we create images in a way that maxi. mizes the potential for profit making. The commercializ ing of an individuals image should not transform an athlete or entertainer into a super-being or some kind of role-model. It appears that Tiger has had relations outside of his marriage but how ridiculous is that everyone is shocked by it all? Most celebrities -particularly in sports -are not monogamous. Obviously, as is usually the case, Tiger wasn't ge ]ting his needs fulfilled a vliome by his wife. If a ries a sports celebrity she should accept the fact that it's going to be an open mar riage situation There are too many young beautiful women throwing themselves at men such as Tiger. And if they aren't getting what they need at home (whatever it is), then they will look for it elsewhere. The Crowned Prince of Golf has fallen. So what? So now he's no longer the world's most awesome athlete? After all, it was his most awesome athletic abili ty that got him where he is. Sure, his extreme boy-nextdoor personality kept him up even when his golf score was, well, up and his game was down. We don't live in his house or walk in his shoes and most of us will never know what it's like to be in Tiger's billion dollar world, but I would venture to say that most of us have experienced a Tiger or a "cheetah" (so to speak). We've all got issues -Tiger has. never claimed to be pure. His image was the result of his fierce desire for privacy and a media and public manic for details about his private life. We are too obsessed in this country with the sex lives of our pub lic figures. Why should we care? We shouldn't but America does. It's sad. With all the other news worthy stories available, we are focusing on a young, rich athlete who lives in a society that promotes and even embraces infidelity and we dare to sit in judgment when an individual succumbs to temptation. How do we explain the ratings for television shows like Desperate Housewives and the TMZ? It is a profit driven industry that feeds on itself. If a story will generate interest (pull readers, listeners or view ers), then it goes right to the headlines or to the top of the ratings, no matter how ridiculous. Presidents, governors, priests, CEOs have all had failings in this area and it is particularly painful and disturbing when a trust or a duty is violated or laws are actually broken, but when a golfer's personal relationships are revealed and talked about as much as Tiger's, one has to wonder. Anyone who looks at Tiger differently as a golfer because of this should examine their own lives. Celebrities are people too. I don 't know why people insist on making their lives every one's business. Many of the people who are Tiger ha. ve their own fail. ings. I think we all cheat in one way or another. A recent poll suggests that go% of men have cheated on their wives or girlfriends and So% of women have done the same. It's a sex driven world. We just hope it's not happening to you. So is Tiger a super-man? he is not. He is only human just like the rest of us and just like the rest of us he does have shortcomings. Life goes on, it always does. Eminem Named Top Selling Anist Of The Decade EMINEM While Eminem doesn't always receive the recognition he deserves, Slim Shady's track record and extensive album sales are continuing to solidify him as one of the biggest artists of our time. As previously reported, Em's Relapse was the top selling album of 2009 with over 6oo,ooo copies sold in the first week, before being knocked out the top spot by singer Susan Boyle. His success with that pro ject, along with his two previ ous albums has allowed him the honor of being deemed the top selling artist of the decade. BeBeWinans ExoneratedOI Domestic Violence Charges Gospel singer BeBe Winans has been exonerat ed of all charges of allegations that he assaulted his ex-wife Debra Winans. Judge Gloria Dumas of the General Sessions Court for Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County signed an order on Friday, December 4, 2009, dismissing all charges with prejudice. With this order, this domes tic matter is over and cannot be reopened. "This has been a trying year, beginning with the death of my father, says Winans. "Even though this allegation has affected not just me, but also the entire Winans family, my children and certain aspects of my career, I chose to stay quiet because I knew the truth. To be exonerated of all charges shows the power of trusting in God, and is a wonderful Christmas gift for me and my children." On February 13, 2009, the BEBEWINANS Grammy Award winning singer was accused of allegedly shoving his ex-wife to the ground during an argument. Court filings stated that the alleged altercation was based on custody issues dealing with their two children. Winans was arrested on March 11, 2009 on a misdemeanor domestic assault charge and was briefly held at the Davidson County jail before posting $woo bond. :c c 0 m (') m :!:: m m JJ ..... .....

The setting or timing of hear ing of His coming is of great value and useful as the body of Christ lives and strives today. pending attack. In Luke Mary is afraid because she is being visited by an angel of the Lord. In one text there is fear and they need to hear a word and in the other there is fear because they are about to hear a word. In both instances, in Isaiah and Luke, there is some de gree of fear. In Isaiah the king is fearful because of a The purpose of both is so that the glory and power of God can be manifested.

The people of God need to find themselves in a place where they need to hear from God and in a place where God is getting ready to speak Ahaz had made an agree ment with the king of Assyria to provide protection for them (2 Kings 16:5-9). It is this verse that provides the background for this con versa, tion. The Lord sent a word to him and told him not to worry but trust Him. In Isaiah's account of the events the king of Judah, Ahaz, is in fear if an attack. The prophet asks him does he need God to show him a sign. The king refuses the sign per haps because he knows the position of compromise he has placed himself in. God acknowledges him as the House of David (vs. 13). This shows that God knows who you are and to whom you belong. As a member of the House of David your trust should not be in the protec tion of man but in the assur ance of the Almighty.

Adult A Satellrte Campus For Faith Bible Institute Growing The ChlXch For Giobal Change" (Acts l : e Rom 1 8 1 Thes. 18) Ahaz s r e fusal to answ e r the question of, "Do want God to show you a sign", points to his alliance with people of foreign gods. Thus the prophet's response, you have tried the patience of men, and must you also test the patience of God (vs. 13b). Often times our actions and choices test the patience of God We try to play it safe by not requesting the action of God because of some previ ous action. But in spite of us, God does what He needs to do for His glory and the benefit of His people. God decides to give Ahaz what he needs regard less of what he has done or failed to request. God does what He wants to do because there is something larger at stake. Your pride and willingness to hide some fault is not enough to stop God from what He needs to do to save and deliver His people. Ahaz is told of the coming of the Messiah as a sign and a promise: God promised that, "A virgin will give birth to a son, and will call him Im manuel" (vs. 14). There are three elements to this prom ise and sign: A Virgin, A Son, mn the and ltw lift:: lhaf believeth in me, though he \>\'t:re tkml, yd shalf !w live. And whoelfer :;md lh in mt: ;o;h
