en Features 1.0 N a: w CD :E w 0 w c Supreme Court Rules: Running From Police _Is A Crime BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last week, members of the Florida Supreme Court ruled a: in a 5-1 vote that it is illegal u. to run from a police officer in a high crime area. One justice didn't cast a vote. In the case of C.E.L. vs. State of Florida, the Suprell)e Court ruled that it is a crlfne to run from police in a high crime area. The justicesconcluded, "Under Wardlow, the moment C.E.L. (defendant) took flight in a high crime area, the officers were provided with reasonable suspicion to warrant an investigatory stop. Therefore, the officers were engaged in the lawful execution of a legal duty. Thus, C.E.L. 's continued.flight in de.fi.-0 ance of the officers' law-c: u. c z < c en w ::l 1-i:t w > w c w :J: en :::i m ::l 0. z ffi ..J ..J ::l m ...:. w z i= z w en c( c a: 0 ..J u. CHIEF JUSTICE PEGGY QUINCE ... lone vote against ruling ful command constituted the offense of resisting without violence ... Justices Barbara J. Pariente, R. Fred Lewis, Ricky Polston, Jorge Labarga, and James E. C. Perry voted for the ruling. Justice Charles T. Canady recused himself. Chief Justice Peggy A TrY. CLINTON PARIS Quince was the only justice who dissented. She wrote in her opinion, "I cannot believe that we as a society have come to the point where we are willing to make crimi nals of people, especially our young people, based on where they live .... Yet given the same set of facts, persons living in a high crime area, including juveniles who haYe no choice but to live where their parents have a home. become criminals if they run upon the sight of a police officer." One Tampa attorney felt the ruling overshadows a person's individual rights Attorney Clinton Paris said, "This ruling is extremely troubling in many aspects. But most of all, it serves notice that a majority of the current Justices on the Florida Supreme Court are willing to take away individ uals rights to justify expand ing police power. "Government action, such as this that dnes not rcsp('ct the rights of individuals is dangerous and must be restrained. .Justice Peggy Quince should be commended for defending indi vidual rights on this issue .. Larry McKinnon, spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said, "It looks like it targets minorities in high crime a ieas. But the kids hanging out on the corner won't get into trouble for running. They, will get into trouble for not stopping when told to stop by a police officer. Grandmother-Irate Over Man's Sentence In Infant's Death ISIAH MCGUIRE ..... died in May 2009 On December 16, 2009, a judge sentenced Angel Robles, 25, to 15 years in prison. Robles was sentenced for the May 2009 death of u-month-old lsiah McGuire. He was subsequently charged with seconddegree murder, aggravated child abuse, sexual battery (injury to sex organ), and lewd and lascivious battery The infant's grandmother, Ms. Nicole McGuire, said they are beyond anger at the sentence, and is livid that they were never told he had been offered a plea deal. "I think it's a shame that we had to find out by looking on the internet that he had been sentenced. The prosecutors promised to let us know what was going on, and they never did that. Even the ]?aby's father wasn't told of a plea deal." Ms. McGuire said her daughter, Tequaneishia, Robles' girlfriend, was the only one consulted about the plea deal and gave her approval. "I haven't spoken to my daughter about this, but I can tell you that a 15-year sentence is like he got off. ANGEL ROBLES .... sentenced to 15 years in prison for murdering his fiancee's son. "We have no closure. We loved that baby, and this is not justifiable. We're trying to find out what we can do to get his sentence overturned." Ms. McGuire said she'd like to see Robles get life in prison for killing her grand son. "We loved that baby, and this is not right. He killed my grandson a couple of weeks before his first birthday. The whole process is just unfair." Ms. McGuire said anyone who reads the infant's death certificate of what happened to him, will agree that this punishment doesn't fit the crime. "I have a meeting set up to talk to the prosecutors. All I want to know is what we need to do to see that this man gets what he deserves. "He took my grandson from me, and all he gets is 15 years in prison? There's something wrong with the justice system if anyone thinks that's fair." Reporter Leon B.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Monday, the Tampa Housing Authority held a Special Board meeting concerning the awarding of a job-order contract. Two of the commissioners voiced concerns over the man ner in which the final contract was awarded. Four job order contracts were awarded, but none of the minority bidders received a con tract. Wilbert Malphus, of Malphus & Sons, submitted bids for three of the four contracts. The controversy stems around a 3-year con tract valued at nearly $6 million awarded to the J. 0 DeLotto & Sons, Inc. DeLotto's bid was $25,200 less than the bid submitted by Malphus & Sons Dr. Hazel Harvey, Chairperson of the board, pointed out that DeLotto & Sons failed to list projects that specifically related to the bid on their original bid. When questioned about their experience, the company submitted paperwork showing that they had completed residential work for Northside Mental Health in 2006. Prior to that, the company had not completed any residential contracts since 1998 Dr. Harvey questioned whether the nearly 4-year span qualified as a recent experience. "During the November meeting, we asked for the most recent projects and were given projects in 1995, 1998 and 1999 In my estima tion, these are not recent projects. After we requested the information again, they showed a project from 2006," Dr. Harvey said. Comm. Rubin Padgett stated that prior to the recession, DeLotto & Sons had never submitted a bid with the Tampa Housing Authority. He feels 'the Housing Authority should consider another form of awarding bids that would allow smaller contractors to compete for business. "I don't want to clean the bus, I want to own the bus and drive the bus," Padgett said COMMISSIONER RUBEN PADGETI 1\) 0 0 (0 He further said he has done extensive research and the only way to ensure that con tracts are awarded fairly is to change the bid ding process. The Housing Authority currently ., uses a race-neutral lowest bid process. 5 Commissioner Padgett suggested that the :::c Housing Authority use a race-neutral system C that awards contracts based on dollar amounts )> or on a points system. m Comm. Padgett further stated, "I don't Z feel comfortable with what we're doing. I'm ::! going to vote against all contracts until I feel better about the way we do business r;-Leroy Moore, Sr Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Tampa Housing rAuthority said there currently is no definition of what is recent that the Tampa Housing :::! Authority uses. "What may be recent for one Z company may be 1 year and what may be recent for another company may be 5 years," he said. m After much discussion, Commissioner r-Cii Sophia Sorolis suggested the board either ::I: vote on the contract or re-bid it. m Commissioner Robert Shimberg seconded 0 m the motion to vote on the existing bid. < Commissioners Sorolis, Shimberg, Manny Alvarez, and Lance Scriven voted -< in favor of awarding the bid. Commissioners -1 Harvey and Padgett voted against it. :ii Malphus said, "The board made their deci-en sion. I have worked with the Tampa Housing Authority for nearly 10 years and I'm proud to ...... have been part of making it better. I'm not bit-ter about losing the contract. It' s not the first C time and it won't be the last time. But I believe "11 they should make the playing field level for minority contractors." nday Night, December 2 TAKAI MOORE {T.K.} Please Call Grandma {813) 410-8262 Or Uncle Rodney {973) 391-5912 (Tuesday Edition); sday Night, December '.JO+hM:I I (Friday Edition) OFFICE CLOSED NEW YEAR'S EVE & NEW YEAR'S DAY

Not Judaism, not Islam, not Christianity, nor Hinduism, nor any other of a thousand religions major or minor can say, "We know the man, the woman, the ones who created a tradition that is practiced around the world." But we can! Who are "we?" We are Mrican Americans of slavery descent, who, in 1966, saw the beginning of something so wonderful and adventurous, that, at first, it caused as much controversy as it caused celebration. To what do we refer? We refer to the holiday celebration of Kwanzaa. And of all the great celebrations of the world ,...-Christmas, Eads, Hanukkah, etc. -we can honestly and officially say, "KWANZAA IS OUR THING!" we wonder how many Christians were living to say that about Christmas? How many Christians could say that on a certain date, a certain individual sat down with quill and table or with whatever instrument was available, and from his brain sprang, fully dressed, the idea of Christmas? Well, we can say that about Kwanzaa. We can say that college professor, Ron Karenga sat down and invented what he called "Kwanzaa." The Swahili word for "first fruits," a weeklong celebration, which was first celebrated from December 26, 1966 to January 1, 1967. Said, Karenga, Kwanzaa was developed to "give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dom!nant society." Orir columnists will no doubt further explain this wonderful tradition, as days progress. But for now, simply remember and be proud of the fact thatr as we prepare to celebrate a holiday of love and reaffirmation, we have a holiday of love and reaffirmation of our own. And the man who made it, is still alive! Republicans Masquerading As Democrats Neither United States House Of Representatives or the United States House Of Senat e is controlled by Democrats. Yes, there are more elected officials in both houses with the letter "D" behind their names, but they are not really Democrats. Instead many of the Ds are Republicans masquerading as Democrats. All one has to do is to observe both houses as they attempt to pass key and important legislation. Many Democrats talk like Republicans, they argue with Republicans and many of them vote with Republicans. Instead of the Democrats just exposing these imposters for what they are, they choose to make excuses for them. They say the Democratic Party is a big tent and these fake Ds are members of the big tent with different ideas and philosophies. What do you ne e d with members that you can't dep e nd on when crucial votes are before the house? The big battle going on in today's Democrati c dominated Congress is not between Democrats and Republicans. Instead, it is Democrats battling Democrats over ideas proposed by Democrats. All Republicans are doing is sitting back in a unified front criticizing, saying no to democratic ideas and stirring the fight between Democrats. The Republicans don't need to be in the majority. All they have to do is serve as agitators and keep real Dems battling the fake Dems. The Republicans are making Democrats look like a bunch of weak, unorganized amateurs in the political arena. Th e mid-term elections are coming up in 2010. The Pres. Obama At Oslo This is what the 44th President of the United States of America said, as he prepared to accept the Nobel Peace Prize. He said, "I receive this honor with deep gratitude and great humility." He who was born son of a Kenyan man and an American woman, one Black, the other white, said, "It is an award that speaks to our highest aspirations -that for all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate." He said, "Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of jus tice." That is what President Barack Obama said, as he stood looking out at a silent audience, at an Oslo auditori um, at Oslo City Hall. But that was not all he said. Standing six foot-one inches tall, this young man who reminds us so much of the best of the race called Americans, Barack Obama looked up into the balcony of them who had come to hear him speak, and he said, "And yet, I would be remiss, if I did not acknowl edge the considerable contro versy that your generous decision has generated. In part, this is because I am at the beginning and not the end of my labors, on the world stage. Compared to some of the gia:nts of history who have received this prize Schweitzer and King, Marshall and Mandela my accomplishments are slight." He said, I cannot argue with those who find these men and women some known, some obscure to all, but those they help to be far more deserving of this honor than 1." Then said this young leader of the Free World, "Perhaps, the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars. One of these wars is winding down. The other is a conflict that America did not seek: one in which we are joined by 42 other coun tries includin g Norway -in an effort to defend ourselves and all nations from further attacks Barack Obama was always an adventurous young man. When he was at Harvard, he excelled, and vowed one day he would return to teach at his alma mater. And this he did. Straight and definitive as any American President has ever stood in the history of our land, this is what he said. This is what President Barack Obamasaid. He said, "I do not bring with ., :::0 0 Democrats will deserve any-}( thin g they get during that elcc0 tion cvcle. If they lose seats and, if they lose their majority m the democrats will have no :i:: one to blame but themselves idiot ought to be able to ::C see that th e Republicans have 1\) one goal in mind. That is to 1\) hinde r any progress the o 0 Democrats may make with (0 hope s of r e pla c ing them as th e majorit y party I giw th e Republican Party credit for o n e thing and that is they play hardball with their memb ers The R e publicans don't allow its m e mber s to stray from the game plan or the goal, if you will. Th e big tent Democnits allow its m e mbers to wander all over the place and they scuffle the goal or the game plan as they try to please everybody. Quite frankly, I am fed up with the Democratic Party but I have no place else to go. The republican party is not an option. Retired General Colin Powell said some time ago that the Republican Party was not the party for Black people. The Democrats need to clean up their act and they can get started by getting rid of the fake Ds. me today, a definitive solution to the problems of war What I ., r 0 c )> en m z ::::1 z m r I Ill c: r r m ..... z do know is that meeting these challenges will require the same vision, hard work and persistence of those men and women who acted so boldly, "'0 decades ago. And it will require ffi us to think in new ways, about r the notions of just war and the en imperatives of a just peace ffi President Obama said c;l many things, that afternoon in Oslo. But among the many statements he made, this is what he said. He said, "I believe that all nations strong and weak alike must adhere to standards that go vern the use of force. I -like m < m :::0 -< ..... c: m en c )> z c any head of state reserve the right to act unilaterally if necessary to defend my nation. Nevertheless, I am convinced "T1 that adhering to standards, international standards, strengthens those who do and -< and weakens those who do not!" And then our 44th American President said, "Let me make one final point about the use of force Even as we make diffi cult decisions about going to war, we must also think clearly about how we fight .... Where force is necessary, we have a moral and strategic interest in binding ourselves to certain rules of conduct. And even as we confront a vicious adversary that abides by no rules, I believe the United States of America must remain a stan dard bearer in the conduct of war." In years to come, no doubt, an enterprising poet and/or a classical composer will put to music the words of another president. I suspect it will be Cf' Barack Obama. )>

They are Ricco Judge, Jeremiah Judge, Bri'Anna Judge, Tiffany Judge and Rylee Johnson. (Photo by Julia Jackson) Author Hopes Book Will Inspire Children CYNTHIA GADSON Cynthia Gadson was born and raised in Progress Village. Growing up, she always want ed to seek a higher education, and wanted to be an instructor. She was successful in that ven ture as she's a second-grade instructor at Kenly Elementary School. Mrs. Gadson said she wasn't inspired to be a writer until she took at course at the University of South Florida where she was a student. "I was given the task of putting together an academic children's book. Before that, I had no interest in writing. As I read my story to some students, they enjoyed it and that inspired me to publish the story." That story turned out to be Mrs. Gadson's first book, "Mom Had A Problem." It's a fictional book about a mother having a difficult time satisfying her daughters with an equal amount of cookies. "The object lesson of the book is for children to think about their problems and decide the best way to solve them. Having students under stand they have choices and to make the best choice is what I try to instill in them." Mrs. Gadson, who considers herself as much of a missionary as an instructor, said some of the students she instructs have severe problems and lack discipline. "I think any child who reads my book will automatically want to be a problem solver. I really enjoy working with second-grade stu dents, beca:use they really want tq learn. They celebrate their new fund knowledge, and want to show it off to others. That's when it becomes a matter of pride." Mrs. Gadson said she's been blessed to have a lot of supportive parents at Kenly. "What troubles me today is the limited guid ance some children are getting at home. A car ing instructor will pick up on that, and specifi cally address that with that child." Mrs. Gadson spent three months putting her first book together and her second boo, "Dad Had Issues," will be released next year. Reporter Leon B.

They detail the FBI's inv estigation of a man who threatened to kill Jackson, as well as various forms of assistance to California authorities in two cases involving allegations that Jackson had abused children. It should be emphasized that none of these alle gations were ever proven in -court.

O ver the years since its creation, The Nation of Islam has served as a source of inspiration for some while being viewed as the bane of "civilized" American society for others. In either case, the often controversial organization has been the target of numerous conspiracies and government viewing projects with the 21st century marking a new age in these endeavors; it marks the first that time the government has E;!Ver publicly admitted any wrongdoing against the religious organization. Homeland Security offi cials are formally apologizing to the Nation of Islam after it was discovered that they "unintentionally and inad-vertently violated" official rules to keep tabs on Muslim organization, citing the group as a threat to national security. Titled "Nation of Islam : Uncertain Leadership Succession Poses RiskS," the illegal voyeurism ended when a high ranking official noted that "the organization, despite its highly volatile and extreme rhetoric, has neither advocated violence nor engaged in violence." There has not been any admissions to other instances of unethincal spy ing by the American government to date, but I am sure the more are likely to surface, thanks to the Obama Administration's ment to transperancy.

George McNamara will retire after dedicating 2 9 y e ars of his life to set\ring others. As a rookie in 1981, McNamara was assigned to work in East Tampa in the Ponce DeLeon and College Hill Public Housing Projects It was there that he established a bond with the residents that lasted throughout his career. "God has blessed me in moie ways than I know My wife, (Lt. Geri McNamara), is my best friend and has been with me through thick and thin. It's not until you get ready to leave that you sit back and reflect over the past. ''I'm very humbled by the people I met such as Ms. Cat (the late Catherine Johnson), Ms. Van Best, and many others who supported me beyond words." Hillsborough County Deputy Frank Dessesseau. He credits the deputy with teaching him how to establish the bonds that would bring about the suc cess Dessesseau enjoyed.

'._ Health For Her Eves Onlv You can find out a lot about a women by examining her eyes. They express love, joy and even excitement. But, at the same time, more than anywhere else on the body, the eyes show early signs of stress, illness and sun damage. With a few life-style changes and quick fix products you can tackle puffy eyes, dark cir cles, crows feet and crinkled lids. Puffy Eyes are caused by fluid pools forming around the eyes while you sleep that should drain during the day. Persistent swelling may be the result of dilated blood vessels, allergies or a diet that promotes water retention such as too much sodium (salt). You should avoid heavy creams because they trap moisture, drink plenty of water and limit salty foods and alcohol, to reduce the water retention. Also try splashing your face with cold water and pat dry with a soft towel. Follow with a cold compress or chilled tea bags (green, black or white), cucumber slices or witchhazel soaked cotton balls; rest with the compress for 15 minutes. This action will help constrict blood vessels and absorb excess fluid. Rinse, dry and than apply a lightweight eye gel that has been stored in the fridge to enhance the calming action. Bags are usually a culprit that comes with age because cells produce more free radi cals, which breaks down colla gen and elastin, causing skin to lose elasticity and structure. Water retention also amplifies the problem. You should eat more vitamin e-rich foods to support collagen production. Tap the eye area lightly while moistur izing to help dissipate excess fluid. Drink plenty of water, limit alcohol and get more rest. Also try placing cucumber slices (for astringency) or chilled caffeinated tea bags (for tannins) on eyes for 15 minutes to tighten skin and absorb fluid. Dark Circles are caused when nasal congestion widens surrounding veins; stress and pbor diet can weaken blood vessels,-which may break -creating bruise-like undertones; and fatigue strains eye lid muscles, engorging blood vessels, making circles appear Exile For Eczema Stop the itching and scratch ing with these natural, soothing remedies. Omega-3 Fatty Acids People suffering with eczema usually have a deficiency of Omega-3. By eating fatty fish, such as salmon or mackerel, in addition to tak ing 3 grams of omega-3 supplements daily, you can calm the skin because of the antiinflammatory action.] Burdock This daisy-family pla 'nt is a liver tonic that also fights off bacteria and is helpful for the infection-prone skin of people with eczema. To make burdock tea, simmer 3 grams of dried root in 1 cup of water for 5-10 minutes; strain and drink 3 times daily. Or take 1-2 teaspoons of tincture 3 times daily. Calendula And Chamomile Apply topically because both botanicals moisturize while subduing inflammation. Also, tty soaking in a tepid bath for 20 minutes, rub inflamed areas with a calendula-chamomile salve or lotion. dark e r by contract You should eat foods rich in vitamin K because it helps fortify blood vessel walls and use a daily topical treatment with vitamin K and definitely get more downtime and sleep. Also try plumping up thin skin with a fast-absorbing oil like jojoba. Please Note: For some, dark circles are genetic. Crows Feet are the result of too much sun exposure and aging which diminishes the skins elasticity You should limit tugging around the eyes, which can further injure the skin and always prqteGt your skin with sunglasse-s and/or sunscreens. Also, hydrate the area with a light oil like evening primrose or a vitamin E serum and use products with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory herbs. Crinkled Eyelids are the results of dry and fragile eye Jids, as a result of the loss of elasticity and fat, plus thinning skin. You should use a light eye cream in the morning and a rich cream at night tapping the eye area lightly when applying the products as it absorbs, which stimulates cir culation Did You Know ...
