CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Ms. Antoinette Glover lives in Eastern Hillsborough County, and says even in that al"ea the sale of drug para phernalia is rampant. "The items they sell may be legal, but they are only used for one thing," said Ms. Glover. "When a man or woman comes into a conven ience store and purchased several small baggies, a pipe, cigar wraps, and other items, we all know what those items are being used for. "Ifs bad enough they are predominately sold in stores where there is a heavy African American popula tion. The sale of these items is out of control and I want to put a stop to it." Ms. Glover said the sale of these items is out of con trol, and she wants to find a way to put a stop to it. On October 24th at 1102 Ayersworth Glen in Wimauma, Ms. Glover Will be hosting a meeting Jrom 5:30 p. m. until 7 p. m. The meeting will be a strategy session to get everyone in volved and to come up with solutions and suggestions on how to deal with the prob lem. "I have invited State ...1 ...1 ::::: m Representatives Betty ...1 Reed and Darryl Rouson, as well as some clergy and i= community leaders.

I want them all to a a: enough is enough." 0 ...1 lL ANTOINETTE GLOVER Ms; Glover said the merchants that freely sell the items do it without fear of the law, because the items are not illegal. "It's what the items are used for that's illegal. I'd like to see a law established that identifies these items as drug paraphernalia and get them banned. "I hope other people take this as seriously as I have;-and realize that millions of dollars are being made from the sale of these items every year." Ms. Glover said seating will be limited to the meet ing, so come early. Refresh ments will be served. MR. WARREN FREDRICK Jan. 15, 1944 --Oct. 2, 2011 BY IRIS B.

..... Features c: rn Aunt 01 Murder. suspect loses Bid To Get Job B -ack DONTAE MORRIS ... Suspect in five murders After a two-day hearing, a former City of Tampa em ployee learned that she won t not be reinstated. She was fired last year after being ac cused of not coming forward with information during a po lice investigation involving her nephew. Last year, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor suspended Mrs. Carolyn Riggins, a 10-year employee with the Tampa Police Department during an Internal Affairs investigation. Based on the results of that in vestigaiton, Chief Castor ter minated her. According to City records, Mrs. Riggins was employed l.n February 2000. She has worked in several areas within the department with her most recent assignment being the Extra Duty Office. Mrs. Riggins is the aunt of murder suspect, Dontae Morris, who surrendered July 2, 2010, after a massive nationwide manhunt. Morris was charged with killing Tampa Police Officers Jeff Kocab and Davis Curtis, on June 29, 2010. He has also been charged wtt4 the mur ders of Derek Anderson, 21, on May 18th; Rodney Jones, 41, on May 31st; and Harold Wright, 25, on June 8th. After two days of testimony, the Civil Service Board for the City of Tampa decided in favor of upholding the ter-MRS. CAROLYN RIGGINS ... Denied Reinstatement on job with City mination. The board decided that Mrs. Riggins should have told her superiors that her daughter, Alaina Riggins, had a close relationship with Morris and his brother, Dwayne Calloway. Last year after the termina tion, Chief Ca:stor said in a news release, "As our department was reeling from the loss of two fine officers, it was an other devastating blow to dis cover a valued Tampa Police Department employee worked against our efforts to catch the hardened criminal. ... Our investigation has re vealed that Carolyn Riggins both withheld pertinent infor mation that could have aided in the suspect's apprehension and provided information to his associates that interfered with the department's ability to track down the suspect." When contacted by the Sen tinel, Mrs. Riggins said she did not want to comment. Of the Civil Service ruling, Chief Castor said, "There is not joy in this verdict. Carolyn Riggins was a trusted member of our TPD family and she betrayed us in our darkest hour. We can all breathe a sigh of relief, know ing that this chapter is closed and we can now move for ward." City Editor Iris B.

Public Housing Residents Learn 1he Art Of Cooking' c 0 0 a m m :::D BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Chef Eric Holland loves what he does. Anyone who knows him and the business he is in, knows that he loves his career cooking and catering. There have been several oc casions where Holland has had the opportunity to share his skills with students He has taught cooking classes to sev eral of the area's schools and technical schools. There is a different excite ment now, however, when he talks about the students in his class from North Boulevard Homes. Chef Eric, as he is known, received an extension on a grant that he received from the Tampa Housing Authority to provide cooking classes for qualified residents. Currently, he has 10 stu dents, who he says are very dedicated to the classes. They range in ages 18-61. Last Tues day, October 4, 2011, class mates served their signature meal to invited guests. Some of the community who stopped in were: County Commissioner and Mrs. Les (Gwen) Miller, Judge Perry Little, Hakim Aquil, Jarvis El-Amin, Rev. Willie Dixon, Dr. and Mrs. John (Molbert) Scrivens, Michael Reeves, Danny Green, Sol Davis, Sr., Sol Davis, Jr., Olivia Brown, Eddye Hankerson, -Gloria Andrews, and Frank Crum.

In addition to learp.ing the basic cooking and food prepa ration skjlls, the class is also taught basic dining room skills. Elliott Burt has worked with Chef Holland for several years. He is a local maitre d and provides 2 sessions during each 6-weeks session of classes. Holland credits the cooper ation of Mrs. Stephanie Brown-Gilmore, who is in charge of Program and Prop erty Services of the Tampa Housing Authority with help ing him to get the program started for the residents. After completing the classes, there is an opportunity for the students to become gainfully employed. A Tampa native, Holland earned his high school diploma from Jefferson High School, while working at several restaurants along the way. He went to California for a period and studied under a French Chef Holland also studied at Johnson & Wales University, taught at Tampa Bay Tech for 4 years, and worked in the prison system for 4 years.

The United Nations Speaks Out On Slaverv C s o it has been said, if the selling of sexual favors is humanity's oldest profession, then the selling of human > beings is humanity's oldest sin. No doubt, someone in the C( United Nations has come to such a conclusion, which is why just recently, the world's premier international orW ganization sanctioned a memorial to victims of slavery and the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Historians estimate .... > between 90 to 200 million Africans were uprooted and a: thrust into slavery from the 15th to the 20th century. The history of the Western Hemisphere cannot be conW sidered without the overwhelming weight of slavery and Q its collateral impact. Voices lost to the centuries became celebrated regarding their opinions for and against slav: en ery. ::J Frederick Douglass who demanded, "Would you have me argue that man is entitled to liberty .. that he is the a.. rightftJ] owner of his own body?" The regal Sojourner z Truth, who bared her bosom, flexed her arms, and in a Wt-room filled with speechless onlookers, thundered, "And _. ain't I a woman?" ..I Then there were men like the Confederacy's, John C. i Calhoun, who tried to explain, "There never has yet ex...1 isted a wealthy and civilized society in which one portion W of the community did not live on the labor of the other." Consequently, the issue of slavery not only continues z to stand out as a great crime against humanity, but it conW tinues to be an issue of endless debate as to why mankind en seems addicted to abuse. Therefore, we congratulate the i: United Nations. For, doing the right thing. 0 ..I I.L Congress Are You Mad At Usil After months of close observation, we have come to the uneasy conclusion that our Congress talks out of both sides of its mouth, especially when it comes to the issue of jobs for American workers. We are confused. Why is it while appearing to champion jobs for unemployed Americans, certain Senate Republicans, some Democrats, and one lonely Independent recently blocked a bill designed to bring jobs for jobless Americans. Someone please explain to us why a Senate bill that would have enticed companies doing business in foreign countries to bringjobs back home to America, and would tax companies that take jobs overseas was roundly defeated. We know. Are you getting a headache, too? What most bothers us is the wanton unwillingness of current Congressional leaders to make any sense at all, about anything that has anything to do with President Barack Obama. Like a flock ofNeros, many Congresspersons seem con-tent to fiddle, while America burns. Meanwhile, "Made in -.::r America" seems a lost dream. W Contact your Congressional representatives! But don't e, be surprised if many of their numbers are no longer in service. Tampa Is Too Big And Diverse To ... T he City of Tampa is big. In fact, it is on the verge of becoming a metropolitan city. It is also very diverse in so many ways. It is diverse in race, religion, customs, jobs, education, neighborhoods and so many other ways. In spite of all of this diversity, Blacks are on the short end of the diver sity. The City of Tampa is too large and too Black to be with out a Black-owned bank. Tampa needs one. A bank of fers a chance to own and con trol some dollars. a bank makes Blacks a player in the financial market. Tampa is too big not to have a Black-owned radio station. A Black radio station gives Blacks the chance to commu nicate with each other, address important, common issues, and to practice their customs. As of right now, Tampa and Blacks don't have a Black radio station. Tampa is too big and too Black not to have a first class Black-owned hotel. There are enough visitors to Tampa, both Black and white, to support a classy Black-owned hotel. There are enough Black dollars in this city to purchase a hotel. Tampa has too many Blacks, not to be more of a player in the business world. Tampa is too big and too Black not to have a Biack owned shopping mall. Blacks in this city can't afford to be just buyers. We must be man ufacturers and sellers also. A first class mall would provide jobs and earn money. No, I am not playing the John Horse 11812 -18821: Black Seminole leader, Scout And Ambassador A fter visiting the website: "Florida's Forgotten Rebels: Rediscovering the Most Succes!)ful Slave Revolt in American History", the story about "John Horse is the answer to every Holly wood studio's wish list. A mix of Spartacus, Braveheart, Amistad, and Glory, with just a pinch of Dances with Wolves." The story"is a tale of a decades-long struggle against oppression suffered by Horse and the Black Seminoles in the American South that led to the biggest slave revolt in U.S. history. The revolt won the only emancipation of rebellious North American slaves before the Civil War, and formed the largest mass exodus of slaves in U.S. history. Also known as John Cawaya or Gopher John, Horse may have been born and raised as a slave in Mi canopy, in then Spanish Florida. One source stated that Horse's owner, Charles Cavallo, may have been his father, and his mother may have been of mixed African and Native American heritage. Remember, slaves began fleeing to Florida to escape slavery in the early 1700's. In 1837, Horse along with Seminole Chief, Osceola and other Seminoles had been cap tured in the Second Seminole War and were imprisoned in Castillo de San Marco, also known as Fort Marion. Chief Osceola was sent off to South Carolina while Horse, Wdd Cat (Coacoochee), and a few other Seminole warriors made a daring escape from the Castillo. Horse led Black Seminoles against American troops and destroyed at least 21 sugar plantations, proving to be a skilled and formidable warrior. Taking advantage of an offer of his freedom and relo cation by General Thomas Jesup, Horse led more than 400 Black and other Semi noles west to Oklahoma. There, Horse became an ad vocate to the U.S. government for better treatment of the Seminoles, as well as for their own land, and became known and respected as a leader. Horse's eloquence and courage led him to make visits to Washington to talk to the president and General Jesup, but also made John Horse the target of assassina tion attempts. race card. I am talking about business and racial pride for Black people. Which reminds me that Tampa is too big and too Black to have just one elected official to every local and state legisla tive chamber. As long as we only have one representative, we are at the mercy of othe r members of the various legisla tive chambers. is too big and has too many Black people living here not to have a first class ban quet hall to hold dances or large meetings. Black civic, social or religious organizations have a banquet or a dance almost every week. That is sure to be enough busi ness to support such a facility. There are too many Blacks in this big old city not to have an Urban League. Urban Leagues are influential and make contributions all over the nation, except in Tampa. We don't have one There are so many things Blacks should be doing or own ing in this city It is time Blacks roll up their sleeves, pool their resources and get to work making it happen. During a second trip to Washington, Horse found out that then-attorney general John Mason had ruled that Black Seminoles were "fair game" for slave raiders and that all Black Seminoles could be sold into slavery to white Seminole, and Creek Indians. Horse returned to Okla homa and led a group of Black Seminoles from Fort Gibson to Wewoka, Oklahoma. Later, in 1849, Horse led the group through Texas to Coahuila, Mexico where slavery had been abolished decades ear lier. Agreeing to fight against Apache and Comanche raiders, Horse and his people whom the Mexicans called "Mascogos" were given land grants at Nacimiento, Mexico, tools, and livestock. To the Mexicans, Horse became known as El Capitan Juan Caballo After the Civil War, Horse and the Black Seminole set tlers returned to the United States, settled near Fort Dun can, Texas and enrolled in the U.S. Army as a new unit that became known as the Semi nole Negro Indian Scouts. A failed assassination at tempt on Horse led him to return to Mexico. However, while on a trip to Mexico City where he hoped to secure ad ditional land for his people, John Horse died. Today, descendants of Black Seminoles continue to live in and the state of Florida So, if you get a chance to visit Mexico, and you see Mexicans who resemble some of your ancestors, they just might be your relatives.

One of the things that I found interesting during the drop scandal that dominated the newspaper headlines for weeks was the amount of money that was reportedly spent by some of the women involved on cosmetic surger ies and other physical en hancement procedures. From liposuction and breast aug mentation to botoxed lips, butt lifts and bleached skin, these women seemed to spare no expense in trying to turn themselves into ghetto Bar-bie dolls When news reached me of what transpiring on the street, I have to admit, I was more than a little surprised. I guess I always enyisioned my sisters as having more char acter and substance about themselves. It wasn t just the fact that Black women were having plastic surgeries that got me It was to the extent that I heard some of them. were going that had me wondering what was spurring on the trend? I tried to figure out if it w as a 'cas;! ofbody image is-.. sues J;>eing ex'!sperated by an over-exposure to rap videos, or were many of these .women simply followipg a "monkey see-monkey-do behavio;r pattern in an to keep up? I get the fact that they wanted to upgrade their ap pearance. I mean who doesn t want to look their best? But, maybe someone should have informed them that some times less is more. Iftheir intent was to gar7 ner more attention from men, particularly Black men, then I believe they were misled. Contrary to popular belief, not every Black man wants his woma n with light-skin and a 44-inch backside Many of us are attracted to a variety of shapes, sizes and complexions. And, for the most part, we don't do Most of the men I know prefer their women to be all natural. We tolerate hair pieces press-on nails and col ored contact lenses to a cer tain degree. But, when it comes down to it, we' ll take an !Yq man that's 100% authentic and loyal over a bootlegged Beyonce any day of the week. Don t get me wrong. If a woman is in the business of selling. fantasies by sliding doWn poles appearing in adult movies or posing for magazines, then she has to do what she must to look the part. But, outside of that, what's really the point? I think I speak for most men when I say that under certain circumstances and in certain situations, super sized female body parts would probably be fun to deal with temporaril y_. Something like a gag item you'd purchase from Spencer's But to lock in for the long ha'ul with a fe niale who's gone overboard with those kinds of proce dures, to me, would be like marrying a blow-up doll. Personally, I'd be too con cerned with the side effects Who or what would I be wak ing up to iri 10-15 years when the maintenance costs be come too much of a burden? That supped up 44-inch be.: hind I mentioned earlier, I wonder what it would look like deflated and hanging off its original36-inch frame? 'I seriously doubt that a lot of these young ladies thought long and hard about what they were getting themselves into when they decided to take the shortcut to beauty. And, I'm willing to wager that a majority of them were just fine the way they were. It is always a shame when a person believes that they can mask the shallowness of their interior by glamorizing their exterior But, what is worse is when they fail to re alize that with every layer of gloss they attempt to appl y they become even more transparent Anyone wanting to con tact Clarence Barr can reach him at: Clarence Barr, II, 431110-018; Bennettsville F.C.I.; P. 0.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Business and civic leaders have complained about prob lems at Club Empire in Ybor City for more than a year Two weekends ago Leslie Jones, Jr., 20, was shot and killed inside the club, and a second man, Ahmaud. Black, 19, was wounded City Councilman Frank Reddick said they will be looking at three op tions in dealing with Club Empire. "We will look at their zon ing to see if we can take ac tion there; review the number of calls to police and incidents at the club and shut it down as a public nuisance, or restrict the hours alcohol can be sold i n the club. "We will also get a report from the Fire Marshal's Of-CITY COUNCILMAN FRANK REDDICK fice as it pertains to the num. her of people allowed tn the club and what is the actual capacity limit." Councilman Reddick said the more he reads about the club, the more he's begin..: ning to see what's been going on. I've received calls from business owners along 7th Avenue who want the place shut down. At this point, we haven t spoken to the owners 1\J d 0 or receive any commumca-:::: tion from them. They also haven t been requested to ap pear before the Council. Councilman Reddick said he's asked Tampa Police to bring him all of the infor.,; mation they have on the club including calls. I've been told the owners intend to install metal detec tors, but it's too late for that. It's certainly not going to make the family members of Leslie Jones, Jr. feel any better City officials said they are working on a solution, in cluding meeting with club owners to discuss beefing up security. The Council will be given updates on the efforts on Oc-0 tober 20th. :2 c )> en r----------------------: --------=------I 1 -llovv l.Js <:>n J'vvot topo At <.he-ck l.Js Ol'l'1.j m z ::! z m r C>n F.lc

Pregame meal, massage, long shooting workout on the court more than two hours before tip-off. When he'll do all that again remains anyone's guess. Wade and Heat teammates Le),lron James and Chris Bosh were among the headliners Saturday night in the South Florida All-Star Classic, an exhibition game featuring nine NBA All-Stars at Florida International. On the 1ooth day since the NBA lockout was announced -and with Commissioner David Stern having said the first two weeks of the regular season may be canceled as early as Monday fans and players were both jittery over the immediate future. "This is very unfortunate, this situation, to be in when you have two sides that at the end of the day have the same goal, just two different ways of getting there," Wade said. "We both want to grow .this game. We both want the NBA to be as good as it can. We want everyone to succeed. But we both have two different ways of getting there.


RAHEEM MORRIS Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveled to the west coast to fact the San Francisco 49ers, and came back to Tampa with a shutout victory. On Sunday, The Bucs not only didn't come close to that kind of performance, but took several steps back in their progress. The Bucs were soundly beaten 48-3 by the 49ers, and every phase of their game plan was taken apart b y the 49ers. Buccaneer head coach Raheem Morris, along with some of his players, had trouble keeping his compo-sure and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. Normally steady quarterback, Josh Freeman, looked rather shaky, recod ing 187 yards on 17 for 33 passing, and adding to his interception total with two more. The Buc ground game that had began to reveal itself over the past two weeks, was completely shut down with LeGarrette Blount carry ing the ball 10 times for 34 yards. Blount left the game early with a leg injury, and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was also carted off with a serious ankle injury. The 49ers recorded three sacks while their quarterback, Alex Smith, was never put on the ground The 45-point margin of victory for the 49ers was their largest since a 48-o win over the Rams in 1997 with Joe Montana at quarterback. This Sunday, the Bucs will host their division rival, the New Orleans Saints, at Raymond James Stadium. Kickoff will be at 4:15p.m. Raiders Owne. r Davis .Dead At82; First own.er To Hire A Black Head Coach ALDAVIS OAKLAND, CA -AI Davis was a rebel with a cause-"Just win, baby" he exhorted his beloved Oakland Raiders And as the NFL well knows, he was also a rebel with a subpoena. Davis, who bucked league authority time and again and won three Super Bowl titles during his half-century in professional football, died Saturday. He was 82. The Hall of Farner died at his home in Oakland, the team said. The cause of death was not immediatel y disclosed. Davis was one of the most important figures in pro football history from his role in the development of the AFL, the merger with tbe NFL and the success he built on the field with the Raiders. Elected in 1992 to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Davis was a trailblazer dur ing his half-century in pro fessional football. He hired the first black head coach of the modern era -Art Shell in 1988. He hired the first Latino coach, Tom Flores; and the first woman CEO, Amy Trask. And he was infallibly loyal to his players and officials: to b e a Raider was to be a Raider for life. {(IThe Voice ofOur Community Speaking for Itself' Panthers, Cam Newton (1) is sacked by New Orleans Saints, Will Smith (91) during the second quarter of an NFL football game in Charlotte, N.C., CHARLOTTE, N.C. -Cam Newton sat at his locker, his head buried in his hands. Newton was brooding again, upset at the 4th fourth-quarter loss his l'A Panthers team has suffered in five games. This time it took even longer than it has in the first 'three losses for him to pull himself together enough to change clothes and meet with reporters. On the game's very first play from scrimmage, Newton threw an intercep tion. "It was my fault," Newton said of that miscommunica tion Newton then did his thing for most of the rest of the game. He threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, ran for a third TD, extended one play after another and generally played like the NFL Rookie of the Year that he will surely be. But Newton made a cou ple of key errors late. Then Newton got the ball back one final time -after the Panthers' defense had failed to stop Drew Brees. Carolina was down by three, but with 51 seconds and three timeouts remaining. The Panthers needed only a field goal to send the game into overtime. The drive fiz zled, though, never reaching beyond the New Orleans 49.
