What labor oav Means To Us A nd what should Labor Day mean to Black America? Who should we ask who could answer that question? Perhaps, we should ask the millions of African slaves who were kidnapped and transferred against their will to a new land with old and wretched ideas regarding human freedom and dignity. Maybe, we should ask indentured servants and fellow slaves who were made to build and rebuild America until it glistened white as snow and towered like the Rocky Mountains. No doubt, we should ask Black soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen who gave their lives for a dream, which had not yet become a reality. This lazy day, when our most laborious act may be to throw spare-ribs on the barbecue grill, perhaps, before we eat, we should clasp hands, and thank God that our ancestors who were the real laborers, did not die; then for at least ten minutes, one of our elders should remind all of us about the real and actual impact and meaning of American Labor. z i= w ..J ..J ::::) al A Tampa native son, long-since passed, was overheard to say, "As Black people, our struggle is not to prove we are equal. Our struggle is to prove that we are human." ..J And so our experience was named. Though Black hands and Black minds would build Washington, D. C. and other i= great cities, street-by-street, the term "Labor" in its capiZ tal sense would not include African Americans until long after the end of the Civil War. < But our history is not over. We Black Americans still C work for our living. Yet, labor is not only our livelihood. a: It remains our middle name. Indeed, to think of a Black 9 American as lazy is to laugh at the majesty of God Himu. self. So, Black America remember your legacy. Whv Mava IS Not Pleased A merica's readers want to know what would prompt the celebrated Maya Angelou to declare war on the inscription on the recently unveiled MLK monument. Always elegant, even when she's angry, Ms. "M's" well chosen words included a vintage noun, which we editors had not seen since the days of Fatty Arbuckle. She said the inscription, "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness," made the 30 foot likenes s and the memory of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "look like an arrogant twit." Now, we know what arrogant means. But how might "twit" be defined? Says Webster, "A twit is someone who is a silly, annoying person, or a fool." But Maya Angelou, one of America's most celebrated poets: could it ever cross her mind that any verb or parcel of Dr. King's words might make him look "twitish?" oo:t NAAAAH! w Cl Well, you see, what had happened was the committee who chose the MLK quote, decided not to use the entire statement, "If you want to say that I was a drum major, Another Problem For Felons H illsborough County has dealt another blow to the rehab process of felons. It is only 28 jobs, but it is another indication of what the State of Florida's attitude is toward helping convicted felons readjust to life outside of prison and back into the free world. Hillsborough County has cut out 28 work release jobs for felons starting in October. What the State of Florida is doing today is just ware housing prisoners This statement brings me to the question of what is the pur pose of prisons. Is it just a place where convicted people just go to serve their time for a crime? Or, is it a place where a person goes to serve their time for a crime and to reha bilitate themselves away from a life of crime at the same time? I don't believe that Florida knows the answer to that question anymore. Facts seem to indicate that the first ques tion is the answer. Hardly any kind of rehabilitation at all takes place in Florida prisons anymore. Most prisons are not equipped to rehab inmates with drug problems, a lack of education or a lack of any real job skills. Inmates go to prison with these problems, serve their time and leave prison with the same problems. In most cases, these prob lems are worse when they get out. I remember a time not too long ago when rehabilita tion was plentiful and work release programs were almost automatic. Not anymore. Twenty-eight work release jobs in Hillsborough County are now a big deal. Today, inmates get out of Black-Eved-Peas And Okra: Slave Cuisine And Soul Food H olidays are always great opportunities for fam ily gatherings and enjoying "down home soul food." One of my favorite family dishes is black-eyed-peas with ham hocks and okra pods laid on top of them, both traditional African foods (minus the ham hocks, of course) and a New Year's delight. Okra and black-eyed-peas are two of the basic foods brought from Mrica to the Americas and Caribbean in 1 1658 by slave ships for feeding their enslaved cargo. When dried, okra can be stored for months, then soaked in water and eaten as if freshly picked. Also known as "lady fin gers," or "gumbo," okra origi nated in the area that is present-day Ethiopia, Mrica where it is called "okwurw" (Igbo) and "kingombo" (Bantu). More okra is pro duced in Ghana, Benin, and the Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire) than in any other Mrican country. Okra is among the most heat, poor soil and drought tolerant vegetable species in the world. Earliest accounts of its existence appear in the writings of a Span ish-Moor who visited Egypt in 1216 Used in soups, stews, gumbo, and deep fried, okra is the national dish of Trinidad, Tobago, the Barbados, and is the secret ingredient of delica cies throughout New Orleans. In Nigeria, "draw soup," made with okra and is eaten by dipping pressed yams into it. Okra leaves are also often eaten raw in salads and its seeds are pressed for its oil that is high in unsaturated fats. Roasted okra seeds are also used to make coffee. When steamed on top of highly soned cooked greens, peas, or beans, okra is at its best (smile)! Although grown around the world, black-eyed-peas were first domesticated in West Africa. Also called "cow peas," "black-eye-bean," "china-beans," in Africa, black eyed-peas are called "okara" (Nigeria and Sierra Leone) and "akla" or koose'" (Ghana). Black-eyed-peas are actu ally beans and were introduced to Southern America in the mid 16oo's in Virginia. The jail and within three years they are back. The main rea son being that they return from jail just like they were when they went to jail or worse. They go to jail with no marketable job skills and they get out with no such skills. Nobody is asking anybody to be soft on crime But, it is a fact that the State of Florida needs to do a better job of preparing inmates for a life after prison. I know that it is not possible to save or help every inmate. Some of .them don't want to be helped, but a lot of them do. Inmates are coming into the prison system for the first time fast enough. We do not need repeat offenders coming in just as fast. When you con sider the number of people in our prison system I ask, what is 28 jobs? It isn't about the jobs in stead, it has to do with Florida's philosophy about the treatment and rehabilitation of inmates. The penal system must do more than just penalize in mates. it should strive to pre vent first time offenders from becoming second time offend ers. heat loving, drought-resistant and nearly disease and pest free black-eye-pea is an excel lent source of calcium, folate and vitamin A. Because the plant blossom produces large quantities of nectar, large fields are used as a source of honey. Black-eye-peas did not become a common table food until after the Civil War. During the Civil War, Union troops destroyed all stored food, crops and live stock that they could not use Because they thought the black-eyed-pea plants were only used to feed animals, they left the "field peas" alone. The popularity of the black-eyed pea as a food staple took root. George Washington Carver promoted the planting of black-eyed-peas among farm ers because the plants en riched the soil by releasing nitrogen. The largest production and consumption of black-eye peas take place in Nigeria where they are also used as flour, in puddiqgs, in cakes, and in fritters. In fact, pan-fried black eyed-pea fritters and balls are traditional street foods in Nigerian As frit ters, they are served .for break fast, snacks, as appetizers, or to complement meals.

TECO warns Customers Of Credit Card Scam Tampa Electric is warning its customers about a recent telephone scam The caller is apparently attempting to gain access to the customer's credit card information. According to Tampa Elec tric, during the past two weeks, the company has re ceived several complaints from medical and health-re lated businesses that some one impersonating a Tampa Electric representative has called their office from a blocked phone number The caller sometimes identified as Jonathan Smith or Donovan Smith, claims the customer's ac count will be disconnected within 24 hours because of an unsigned check or an ex pired credit card. He then re quests a credit or debit card number to avoid the discon nection. In at least one case, a customer supplied a credit card number, which was later used illegally. Tampa Electric never calls to ask for credit card or debit card numbers. Tampa Elec tric advises its customers to contact the company for ver ification before providing any personal information.

Local Commissioners Approve New Emergencv Operations Center LES MILLER, JR. Hillsborough County Commissioner, District 3 BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Although it is more than a year away, Hillsborough County Commissioners have laid the groundwork for a new Emergency Operations Cen ter. Construction will be com plete for the $31.4 million facility in 2013. The decision to construct the new building took place during a meeting on Tuesday in a 6-o vote. Commissioner Mark Sharpe was absent. Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., said the current building is just not sufficient for the needs of the people. "It is old, it can't withstand hurri cane force winds, it can't ac commodate the number of people that will be there dur ing an emergency, and there are a number of reasons that make a new building neces sary. "We took an oath and citi zens expect to receive emer gency information. It is very important that the citizens re ceive this information as soon as possible, whether it is about a hurricane, tornado, or man made disaster." Commissioner Miller further stated that the funding for the new building, which will be located on Columbus Drive between Falkenburg Road and U. S. 301, will be paid for with money bonded over a 30 year period. The county will repay the bonding agency $1.5 million per year, which will come from commu nications taxes such as cell phones and cable. "It's important that people understand the building will not be paid for with property taxes," he said. In August 1992, Hurricane Andrew caused bil lions of dollars in damage in South Florida. Commissioner Miller said building codes changed after Hurricane Andrew and the cur rent Emergency Operations Center was built under the old building codes. Upon comple tion, the new building will be able to withstand Category 5 winds.

a: w m w 1-Lee Rov Selmon Dies 2 oavs After Massive Stroke a. A retired Tampa r e sident a. cn known as an outstanding ::=: athlete and humanitarian, 0 suffered a massive stroke at tn his home on Friday. He died at St Joseph's Hospital on 1-Sunday. He was surrounded by family members at the time of his death. The family of Lee Roy Selmon issued the following statement: "It is with very heavy hearts that the Selmon Family announces the passing of our beloved husband, father and brother, Lee Roy Selmon. Lee Roy passed away today (Sunday) surrounded by family and friends at St. Joseph's Hospital. "For all his accomplish ments on and off the field, to us Lee Roy was the rock of our family. This has been a sudden and shocking event c and we are devastated by a: this unexpected loss. We 1L deeply appreciate the prayers and support shown c( by family, friends, the football community and the pubC lie over the past two days. f3 "For those wishing to ::l honor Lee Roy's many contributions, we ask that donaa: tions be made to Abe Brown Ministries or the University W of South Florida Foundation C Partnership for Athletics "We ask now for privacy at this very sad time and will i not be making any further :;) statements until funeral a. arrangements are announced at a later time." W Friends Comment :I Former Tampa Bay ffi Buccaneer Quarterback ...I Doug Williams said, W "There is not a lot to say, his legacy speaks for itself. z Whether you are riding qn the Lee Roy Selmon c( Crossway Express or eating C at his restaurant, he will always be remembered. He ....1 dedicated his life to USF 1L football. Someone like him dying so young is just a tragedy, Williams said." Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer David Lewis played with Selmon for 5 years. However, their friendship has lasted more than 30 years. Lewis recalled those early years when the Bucs team was filled with major college winners -the Selmon brothers were from Oklahoma, Lewis, Danny Reece and Ricky Bell were from USC, other players were from winning programs at Penn State and University of Pittsburgh. "We were all from winning programs and it was difficult getting used to losing. Lee Roy, the first original Buc had to endure all the ridicule, jokes and hecklers. Being a new team we didn't have veteran players to show us the way or tell us how to do it. We had to feel our way. The fun we shared on the field then made the bond of brotherhood that we share today we're there for each other." "Even back then," Lewis stated of the early years, Lee Roy tried to walk the life Christ has set for all of us. "I still remember how Walter Payton used tQ describe Lee Roy. He said he was the nicest, roughest defensive player he ever played against," Lewis stat ed. Lewis, 56, was with the family throughout the weekend until Selmon passed away. Lee Roy's brother, Dewey, kept the close knit group of friends informed of his condition. October 20, 1954 --September 4, 2011 He's gone now and we'll miss his flesh, but the Lord did not make a mistake. His work on earth is done and it didn't take 70 years. He has accomplished so much, received so many accolades Pro Football Hall of Fame, Bucs Ring of Honor, high way and restaurants named in his honor and so much more. "His spirit willbe with us forever He left a legacy and a blueprint for his family -children, grandchildren, those who knew him and those that knew of him. He was a devoted husband, wonderful father, tremendous friend, super teammate, wonderful to people and most of all he loved Christ. "I salute Lee Roy Selmon and I thank God for putting him in my life." Mrs. Marie Tarver White has known Selmon for more than 20+ years. She met him through her uncle, Rev. John Stephens, at his restaurant, Big John's Alabama Barbecue. She said he has been a tremendous support in the success of the second-go-round of her magazine, On-Que! Christian magazine "He was so encouraging. He'd always tell me to keep on doing it because God would not have His Word to go forward void," she said. His Career Selmon graduated from Eufaula High School in Eufaula, Oklahoma in 1971, as an honor graduate. He was the youngest of 9 children born to Lucious and Jessie Selmon. He joined his brothers, Lucious and Dewey, on the defensive line at the University of Oklahoma. The brothers established themselves as a forced to be reckoned with at the University of Oklahoma. During his college career, Selmon received numerous honors including being named All-American in 1975, the Vince Lombardi Award, and the Outland Trophy, and Graduate Fellowship Winner National Football Foundation Hall of Fame. After graduation, Selmon was the first player chosen in the NFL draft in 1976 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wore jersey #63. Selmon's entire career was as a Buccaneer and he retired 9 years later. The Bucs also drafted his brother, Dewey, that year. Selmon was chosen "Rookie of the and MVP his first year.

Four years later, he was named to the Sports Illustrated NCAA Football All-Century Team. Selmon was also the first player to be inducted into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ring of Honor iri November 2009. After retirement, Selmon remained ip Tampa, where he worked in the banking industry. He became active in several charities and ath letic programs. In 1993, he was chosen as the Assistant Athletic Director at the University of South Florida. He was promoted to the position of Athletic Director at the university in 2001. It was under his direction and guidance that the university launched its football program. Health issues forced him to step down in 2004. Since establishing himself in Tampa, a highway, the Lee Roy Selmon Crosstown Expressway, has been named in his honor and he established a chain of restaurants that bear his name as well Funeral services for Selmon were incomplete at press time.
