She will represent Florida during the summer. Black Communitv Census Returns low BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor Marilyn Stephens, Assistant Regional Census Manager from the Atlanta Region was in Tampa on last Thursday to try and encourage residents of the area to return their census forms. "It's not too late to return the forms," she said, although the mail-in deadline was Friday, April 16th. Ms. Stephens was accom panied b y Ms. Felecia Harvey, Media Specialist for the Atlanta Region Census Center. Ms. Stephens said there are some pockets, especially in the East Tampa community, that have been slow to respond to the Census. "The return rate in East Tampa is at so% right now. We'd liket_o_ get it up to at . least 67.:70%," she said. Ms. Stephens said she also wants the African-American community to know that their data is protected. "The infor mation is sealed from other agencies. The government, creditors no one has access to that information. The indi vidual can access it, if they needed for something involv ing their children or legal pur poses, but absolutely no one else has access." She adds, however, that if the forms are not returned, there MARILYN STEPHENS are areas that stand to lose out on various services over the next 10 years. For instance in healthcare, services for sen iors, infrastructure and the availability to about 170 different programs. Because this is the first cen sus of the 21st century, Ms. Stephens emphasizes the im portance of returning the form. Starting May 1, 2010, census workers will start knocking on doors. "They will ask the same 10 questions that are on the forms that came in the mail. We're just asking the residents to cooperate and give the infor mation," she said. The census workers can be identified by their badges and they will also have cards that the individuals may call to ask if the person at their door is a census worker. BY IRIS B.

N Crime Watch leader savs Ne Residents Causing Problems > ct BY LEON B. CREWS C Sentinel StaffWriter a: u. Ms. Ullie Howard has called West Tampa home for 30 years. She re cently lost her hu sband, and has taken on the role of being h er community's Crime Watch representative. Ms. Howard said things are out of control and something has to be done. Most of the new residents are on Section 8 and I think they s hould be screened more carefully before they are allowed to move into these houses. The new people have brought all kinds of problems with them and they harass people who have been here for decades. They feel they can do what they want and they don t care who they disturb or hurt They don 't want to abide by the rules of the commu nity. Ms. Howard said the new residents also have no respect for the law. Because I have a close relationship with the police and they occasionally visit my home, I get cursed, threatC ened and intimidated. These parents ii: have no control of their children and u. 0 allow them to ride mo-peds up and Z down the sidewalks late at night. They < have loud parties and have no problem invading your privacy or violating your property by parking in front of w our house or in the driveway." Ms. Howard said it's difficult for a:> police to catch these acts, because the w residents know when the police are > coming. W Just before the police arrive, everyC w :I: en :::::; m ::J a.. z i= w ..J ..J ::J m I ..J w z i= z w en < c a: 0 ..J u. < I ..:I' w C) ULLIE HOWARD 1/ ; thing gets quiet, and they all go inside their harri es. As soon aSt the police leave, they come out and start it up all over again, including the threats and intimidation. Ms. Howard said what's really up setting to her is she has an 84-year-old neighbor who is caring for her termi nally ill husband. She has a drug house on both sides of her home. She s gotten so tired of it, she's moving. She s a.Iso concerned about her sick husband and what will happen to him if things get worse. "I don't blame her or any of the other residents who have been forced out of their homes. But, I'm not going any where, and I want all of us who have something vested in thjs community to unite in a show of strength. That's the only way we will let them know we aren't going anywhere, and we' aren't going to allow them to do what they want at the expense of the people who care about West Tampa."

Opinions expressed on ectnonat pages ot IIUs newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers do not necessarily renect the ectnorial stance ot The Floridll Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher Goodnight, Ms. Dorothv What no historian of the American Civil Rights era has yet to honestly discuss, is the often thankless struggle of Black women in the Civil Rights Movement. For the most part, Black women were in the background. They planned and marched and posed for pictures. But by and large, they were either seen and not heard, or they were left at home while their men took center stage in an often sexist crusade. Indeed, the truth of the Civil Rights Movement too often rendered Black women as second-class citizens. But that was not so, with Dorothy Height. Her name was Dorothy Irene Height. She sat three seats down from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and watched him stand nervously to address thousands outside the Lincoln Memorial, at Washington, D.C. She marched with Martin, planned with him and every other major Civil Rights leader during the Civil Rights 6o's. But even before then, Miss Dorothy, as many would lovingly call her, was a force to be recognized. Mentored by Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary McLeod Bethune, and graduating honors from New York University, Dorothy Height would stand in no man's shadow. Her words and wisdom guided a nation toward greater equality and justice. In the words of President Obama, "She was the godmother of the Civil Rights Movement." But we would say, "She was an architect for a future America." Just the other day, she left us; picked up her things, packed her bags and made the transition from: life to eternal life. What more can we say, other than "Goodnight, Miss Dorothy! We'll see you, in the morning!" Maninlee Anderson Remembered And how can we forget Martin Lee Anderson? How can we forget the memory of a 14-year-old boy, beaten, kicked and pummeled to within an inch of his life; who had ammonia-capsules stuffed up his nose to revive him, and all of this was done by state-employed boot camp detention guards? You tell us. How can we forget? The child died. Or don't you remember? His death was blamed on a sickle cell trait. Martin Lee Anderson met a brutal end, which has further been confused by the Justice Department, recently refusing to pursue civil rights violations or other charges against the boot camp guards and the nurse who murdered him. Not even a charge of child abuse was leveled against these so-called public servants. So, how can the world forget? That the culprits of this child's death will be allowed to live in complete freedom. It is more disquieting to think other children most surely await the same treatment from prisongUards and the Justice Department. Justice is supposed to be blind. But it is not supposed to be stupid. We will never forget Martin Lee Anderson. And you -...: . . . . ..-. Mt. Pleasant chool Connects The Dots ::c 0 > > "0 ::c r-BY RANDY KINSEY M t. Pleasant Middle School subscribes to the philo sophy that education is a connection between the school, the home and the com munity For that reason, Mt. Pleasant has started a pro gram called The:. Dots. The program hired certified teachers to work with Mt. Pleasant students after school The teachers provide tutoring homework assistance and counseling in the student's home. The teachers work with the children, with the parent s permission. Parents must be at home when the teacher is present. Home visits by the teacher are pre-scheduled and approved, The teacher also works with the parents to effedi\'ely lx in\'ohed in their child's educa tion. Mt. Pleasant. which serves 6th, 7th and 8th graders, is in th e first year of the program and it is working w ell. The program '"ill be in effect next school term also. Parents are in1pressed "Connectiag.The bots." Teachers at Mt. Pleasant bethat tutoring leads to bethas a conference period every day. One day a week, all teachers use a conference period to tutor students in their classes that need extra help. This program is called 'in school tutoring' and students look forward to these sessions. The administration and faculty of Mt. Pleasant Middle School places a lot of emphasis on reading. Every student fl.) 0 takes either bnsir rending or _. 0 advanced rending. Tht school has a computer lab where much of the reading is taught by computerized reading pro grams In the school's efforts to con nect all of the educational dots, the school takes its stu dents on a number of educa tional field trips throughout the community. Role models from the com munity are brought into the school to talk to the students, to try to help them set goals, to instill self confidence and to try and complete the circle of dots that all must be present in order to provide children with the best education possible. The school will for the first time present a summer reading, math and science acad, emy. 5 :xl 6 )> en m z m Hineparts And The Countv Mavor r;m c: r r-g) I t was Friday morning, and I had just settled down, at my favorite greasy spoon to enjoy a wholesome helping of biscuits, sausage and gravy, when in popped Hineparts (that's J. Algonquin Hines, but the peo ple call him Hineparts for short. And what did Hineparts do, but make his way to my table, slide in on the opposite side and imme diately pick an argument with me. "Why don't you ever order ossin-fay with a side order of floy-floy sauce?" Hineparts snapped. "Be cause there is no such thing as ossin-fay with a side order of floy-floy sauce, I coolly responded. Hineparts gave me a look, which said, "You one of them Negroes what thinks he knows everything." But Hineparts did not say that. Instead, he said, "You know what?" What? "I think I'm gonna run for County Mayor! "County WHAT?" I bolted trying hard not to choke on my bis cuits and sausage. "N egro you heard COUN1Y me! I said MAYOR!" Hineparts growled, as he poured himself a cup of cof fee. "Well, what happened to you and your campaign for County Dog Catcher?" I asked. "Forget about that! snapped Hines. Hineparts glared at me for response. But I wouldn't touch that one. Instead, I changed the subject. "So, what made you think about running for County Mayor?" "Well," said "H.P," "I thought about runnin' for City Mayor, but there's a rumor goin 'round that former Mayor Dick Greco gonna run again. So then I thought about runnin for County Commis sion, but I know too many people would be up in that place. There s ol' Kevin White. I used to play cards with him. And I hear Les Miller might run I used to shoot marbles with him, when we was kids. But I looked around and I thought, Who don t I know z real good that I could run against and not worry about seein them on a Sunday m morn in'? So, I picked County C Mayor!" "Well, current Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio may be m running for County Mayor," < Icautionedr ''GOOD!" Hineparts -1 huffed, and then continued, c: "Have you ever met Pam m Iorio? I have READ about 0 Pam Iorio, but I have never MET Pam Iorio! Besides, ain't that the name of a cookie?" "That's 'Oreo,' fool (I mean) Hines!" Hineparts just rolled his eyes and laughed, "Well, it's all the same to mel" "So, don't ask me about runnin' for dog-catcher, no IJlO'," grinned Hineparts. "From now on, just call me 'J .

An unronunate Truth Last week when th e s tory hit the news about a ? yearold girl being raped by sev eral y oung men between the ages of 13 and 21 at a neigh borhood party in Trenton, New Jersey, everyone seemed to be overcome by a feeling of outrage and disbe lief The fact that it was the vic tim's 15-year-old stepsister who, not only allowed the incident to transpire, but accepted money from the seem e d almost unimag in able.

Very seldom, did any of these incidents end with the tormentor being brought to justice. More often than not, the issue would be swept under the rug. A dirty little secret locked away in a vault and never brought to the attention of the authorities or more importantly, to the attention of gossiping neigh bors. The dignity of the fam ily had to be preserved, even at the expense of shattered innocence. I never understood how members of a family, partic ularly the female matriarch, could overlook such tragic circumstances in a futile effort to keep a perverted relative's reputation from being tarnished. Having a daughter, I can only imagine what I would do if something. of that nature happened to my own. Blood relations may prevent me from taking the life of the person responsible, but when it was all said and done, he or she may wish I would have. There was a time when the subject of pedophiles conjured up images of middleaged white males wearing trench coats and dark shades. But recently, with the accounts like the one in New Jersey and the many horrific tales I've heard from more than a few sources, I've come to realize that these. monsters come in all shapes, sizes, colors and ages. You really canit trust any one anymore. First cousins, uncles and, now sadly, even older brothers have to be monitored as closely as new boyfriends and girlfriends for that matter. Our children are being stalked at every turn. And itis up to us as parents to protect them from whatever threat presents itself, regardless of whose direction their little fingers begin to point.

"Smoking' s impact on African Am ericans is dangerou sly deep," said public health expert Cheryl G. Healton, DrPH, President and CEO of Legacy. Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death in the United States and among African-Americans. It is estimated that as many as 30 percent of African-Amer ican deaths from cardiovascular disease are a result of tobacco use. In addition, African-Americans, particularly men, have experienced lung cancer at nigher rates than whites for many years. Smoking habits, socioeconomic differences, and the metabolism of tobacco carcinogens may play an important role. Quitting smoking is one of the single most important lifestyle changes one can make for a longer, better life. Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable premature death in the United States.
