Features Carver Citv/lincoln Garden Second Hearing Is Thursdav BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter O_n Thursday, December 17th, residents from Carver City/Lincoln Gardens will meet in the chambers of the Tampa City Council. This will be the second reading of a request by businessman, Joe Redner, to get a brewery he operates in their community rezoned to allow the consumption of alcohol on the premises. The brewery is located on Spruce Street in a residential area. On December 3rd, residents from Carver City and Lincoln Garden packed the Tampa City Council chambers in opposition of Redner's efforts to change the zoning. They were adamant in their beliefs that Redner was try ing to bring one of his Dale Mabry clubs into their com munity. City Council members JOE REDNER Linda Saul-Sena, John Dingfelder, Joe Caetano and Charlie Miranda voted in favor of Redner. Council Chairman Thomas Scott, and Councilwoman Gwen Miller voted against the request. Residents from Carver City and Lincoln Gardens will have the opportunity to bring before the Council proof as to why this request should be denied Thursday. Carver City/Lincoln Gardens Civic Association President, Dr. Maurice DR. MAURICE HARVEY Harvey, said they have been put in a difficult situation. "There's no way Redner is going to do anything to jeop ardize wh at he's trying to do. He's been very careful in the past to make sure no one has ammunition to use against him, and this will be no dif ferent. "We know when we go before Council Thursday, we'll have to make our case as a community and lifelong res idents of the area. We feel we have more vested here than Redner does."

The unidentified youth war arrested and charged with killing his 5-week-old cousin during the summer. A special judicial order prevents the name of the child to be made public. On Frid(\y, Juvenile Judge A. Gregory Poole stated that while the boy was not guilty of murder, he was guilty of two counts ()f battery. The youngster will be allowed to stay with a relative and return to court on January 6th for sentencing. Judge Poole could give him from 2 years of probation to 2 years in a juvenile facility. "He was scared and didn't know what to do so he tried everything he could to get the baby to stop crying. He didn't know what to do and I don't expect him to know what to do. In order to get the baby to get quiet, he committed batteries against this baby," Judge Poole stated.

I When Monev Has lost Its Value I What is greed? Says famous ph.ilosopher Erich Fromm, "greed is a bottomless pit,"which exhaust the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction." We say, greed is a little child who grows up never having learned how to sax "Thank you." But whatever the definition, we wonder, does it define the mind of a man like Berny Madoff, who stole more than $50 billion? You tell us. This Christmas season, as many Americans are strQggling even to afford Christmas cards, what are we to say about a man who made off with billions? What are we to say about a national economy that watched him almost succeed? Just what is the value of money, anyway? Once upon a I don't care what studies say about when and how old one should be before they start self-examination and doctors' examinations of their bodies test for disease, deficiencies or body defects. The latest is self-examinations and mammograms in order to test for breast cancer The question is whether these medical tests should begin at the age of 40 or so for women. The question is also whether the breast self exam and visual observation is of any use To this I say, yes. Those with breast cancer stand an excellent chance of survival, if the cancer is dis covered early enough. Many women have died of breast cancer before they were so years old and some before they were 40 years old. Several are breast cancer sur vivors because the cancer was discovered as a result of breast self examinations that found lumps or breast abnormali ties. A mammogram should immediately follow a discov ery of a breast abnormality reg a rdless of age. Pap smears should also be done early and often But regula r tests, either done individuall y or by a doctor should be done for both women and men. Tests would include a doc tor administered colonoscopy, prostrate examination, hypertension checks, diabetes screening, cholesterol level checks, heart rates and functioning, regular check for body sores, constant checks for swelling of the joints, ankles or stomach and checks of the feet and toes for sores, ingrown toenails, calluses or other sores I am no medical doctor and let me be clear about that now. However, I have lived long enough, visited with enough doctors and talked to and seen enough sick people time, before of us were born, to make a dollar a day was to earn what many an elder would call "BIG MONEY!"

True to the spirit of the times, white golfers threatened to withdraw from the competition. Shippen had been allowed to play in the Open because he regis tered as an Indian (his mother was a member of the Shinnecock tribe). His best finish in the five U. S. Opens in which he competed was a tie for fifth, in 1902. George Grant, a Black dentist from Boston. Massachusetts, designed first golf tee (which raised the golf ball slightly off of the ground) registered by the United States Patent Office in 1899. The tee gave golfers greater control of the direction and speed of the drive and now has become a stan dard piece of equipment for all golfers. In 1928, Dewey Brown became the first Black member of the Professional Golfer's Association of America (PGA). Having worked as a caddie in New Jersey, Brown learned the game and became a well-known golf club designer and maker and a golf teacher during the 1920s and 1930s President Warr.en G. Harding commissioned Brown to design a set of golf t o h ave a very good i dea as to w h a t n eeds t o b e done in or d er to m a k e every eff ort t o e n su r e g o o d h ealth for a l o ng, l o n g tim e Ho w w ell y ou ca re for y our body a nd how w ell you kee p a check on the things that I ha ve mentione d above may very well determine how long you may live and what kind of health your body will be in ar you move into 'the twilight years of your life It is an established fac t that more and more people who take very good care of their bodies, both mentally and physically are living to b e on e hundred years of age and older and functioning v e r y well It helps to do all things in moderation, in a ddition to liv ing lif e in mod e r a tion and tak ing car e of your body.

After six years as a PGA member, Brown's membership in the PGA was revoked because of a "Caucasians-only" clause in its bylaws You see, Brown was so light-skinned, he had "passed" for white all thos e years. In later life, Brown purchased the Cedar River Golf Club in Indian Lake, New York In 1972, his son assumed management of the property, which he sold soon after his father's death, in 1973 During the 1920s and 1930s, Joseph Bartholomew, a well-known Black architect in the New Orleans area designed and built more than a half-dozen golf courses _qQ which he was not allowed to play. Segregated conditions at that time prompted Bartholom.ew t o bui ld his own seven-hole course_for Black golfers in Harahan, Louisiana. Other men who opened doors in the last two centu):ies for Tiger Woods include Theodor.e "Ted" Rhodes (who mentored Lee Elder and Charlie Sifford, two Black golfer greats) and Bill Spiller (who filed law suits to desegregate the sport of golf in the 1940s). Next week, I will share stories about the courage and determination of these men and others like them who stood up to racism and preju dice in the world of golf. Until then, let us all pray for Tiger Woods and his family. Harambee! Four!

So was the conclusion of "The Status of Black Florida," a three-day issues conference held by The Florida Conference of Black State Legislators. Organized by Caucus Chairman Senator Gary Siplin (D-Orlando), the initia tive, began on November 18, included Flori,ja NAACP President Adora Obi Nweze, who served on se v eral panels and addressed a broad range of issues important to black Floridians. Siplin emphasized that the Caucus mission was to gather information to help build the agenda for the upcoming 2010 legislative session which begins in March "We have to propose solutions that will take our c .ommunity to a better place. Black Floridians are dispropor tionately impacted in a negative way, in every category from health care to employment to contract p articipation. Combine that with the bad economy and there's a prob lem," Siplin s aid. We are not even close to where we need to be as participants on all levels. We will stay focused and vigilant for the future and our Nweze added. The three day conference hosted over forty experts and state and federal government department heads who fielded questions from participants. Conference panels included the Census Plan of Action, Energy Policy, Healthcare and Education, Corrections and Juvenile Justice, and Economic Advancements. More than thirty 30 Black business professionals and owners participated in the Economic Advancement forum.

Despite stimulus revenues m pumped into the systein, Black f:g businesses, large or small are )> not included in many of the bil--< lions of dollars in contracts l> awarded thus far. E Senator Siplin noted that ., the forum resulted in a positive 2:! exchange and pledges of future C cooperation. But he cautioned that both he and Nweze would follow up on those commitments and monitor their progress during the next sever-al months. Monday-Saturday By Appointment Only

RAHEEM MORRIS The Atlanta Falcon s p\lt a backup quarterback on the field against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and were suc cessful. The following week, the Carolina Panthers beat the Bucs with a backup quar terback. This Sunday, the New York Jets kept the trend going. when they also used a back up quarterback to send the Bucs to 1-12 for the season with a 26-3 win a Raymond James Stadium. In their loss to the Falcons, it was a last second touchdown that gave Atlanta the win. Against the Carolina Panthers, it was a lackluster performance and 5 intercep tions that spelled doom for the Bucs. Against the Jets, it was a combination of all those things and more as the offense did absolutely noth ing, accounting for orily 124 yards 'in four quarters. Rookie quarterback Josh Freeman opened up the team's starting drive with an interception. He later tossed two more picks, and it appeared the Bucs couldn't gef out of their own way. The defense played well considering what they were up against and how much time they spent on the field. After the game, head coach Raheem Morris finally relented that they are not a good team right now, With three games remaining against the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints on the road, and the Atlanta falcons t home, many expect the Bucs to clearly be in line for the first pick in this next year's draft.
