HOLTON Sentinel City Editor After y ears of discussion and debate the City of Tampa finally has a new ordi nance addressing the issue of panhandling on street cor ner s . Members of City Council passed the ordinance with 41 vote. On Friday, Mayor Bob Buckhorn signed the ordinance into law. The three ordinances are: Option 1): Ban on street solicitation with exemption for newspapers; Option 2): Six-day ban on street solicitation; and Option 3): Ban on street solicitation with exemption for newspaper sales and allowance for expressive speech not requiring an exchange of objects. The ordinance also pro hibited any sales of any kind on the 10 intersections perceived as the busiest. Those Mayor Bob Buckhorn is .shown signing the new Panhandling Ordinance into law Friday.

She sponsored a bill that was not only humanitarian, but it made bedrock c sense. Senate Bil1524, "Healthy Pregnancies for In carD: cerated Women Act" made it illegal and no longer necI.L essary to shackle pregnant women inmates during c z labor. What's that you say? You didn't know that the life of the mother, but the baby"-most certainly, w C someone using a guise of "economic-watch-dogging" w objected that either treating female inmates humanely during their most vulnerable and most human mo::i ments was either too cost-effective, or might pose a m danger to corrections officers.

Now USPSTF is back and is advising healthy men not to receive PSA (prostate specific antigen) tests, which indicate whether a patient needs further testing for prostate cancer. We want to know, what gives with USPSTF? Perhaps, you have suffered from prostate, cervical or breast cancer; know someone who has been diagnosed with prostate, cervical or breast cancer, or have insurance that covers annual PSA tests, PAP smears or mammograms. If you are Black, that's all the more reason to join us as we support continuation of the use of PSA tests PAP smears and mammograms, especially when Black people seem to be diagnosed with these cancers at later stages than do other ethnic groups. The numbers of Black victims have familiar names. Call them Rufus, James, Les, Oswald, Bob, Gretchen, linda, Gretta, Joyce, and Sheila. They are the names of people we know. By the way, though we're presently at odds with members of USPSTF, we urge them also w to get PSA tests, PAP smears and mammograms. Our argument is simplistic: Staying alive makes good a; sense.

James Weldon Johnson 11811 -19381: Educator, Composer And Civil Rights Advocate "Lift every voice and sing/ Til earth and Heaven ring ... Elementary school children of our generation had to learn the words to the song Lift Every Voice And Sing. Today, I doubt if that happens in many public schools. Born in Jacksonville, Florida to a hotel waiter, James Johnson and a school teacher Louise Dillet, James Weldon Johnson and his brother J. Rosamond Johnson were reared in a home where they were encouraged to read English literature books, taught to play the piano and to appreciate music. Both brothers excelled in the jects. Johnson also excelled in sports as a pitcher for the Domestics baseball team. After graduating from Stanton Grade School in Jack sonville, Johnson attended Atlanta University, gradu ated with honors and. returned to Jacksonville to teach and later became the principal of his grade school alma mater. Eventually, his grade school, Stanton, became a high school because of Johnson's dynamic leader ship. Johnson left the field of education to study and pursue a brief career in law becoming the first Black in Florida to qualify for the Bar through an open examina tion in state court in 1897 Upon Johnson's brother J. Rosamond's return to Jacksonville after a brief stay in the music world on Broad way in New York, both brothers began to write songs, operas and musicals, and spend summers promot ing their art together on Broadway. In 1900, Johnson wrote the song "Lift Every Voice And Sing in honor of President Abraham Lincoln's birthday celebration. Today the song is known as the Na tional Negro Anthem. Eventually, several inci dents, which included a near lynching for dating a Black woman who looked white, as well as the destruction of Stanton High School by fire, forced the Johnson broth ers to leave Jacksonville and to move to the "bright lights" ofNewYork. There, they be came popular for their talents as composers of musicals and operas. In time, .Johnson was appointed to the position of United States Consul in Venezuela from 1906 to 1909, and then was ap pointed United States Counsel to Nicaragua by President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1912, Johnson left the State Department to become a Civil Rights advocate and Field Secretary for the Na tional Association for the Ad vancement of Colored People '(NAACP). Under his leader ship, branches of the NAACP in the South mushroomed from three branches to more than 130 branches. Johnson's success with the NAACP ultimately re sulted in his becoming the first Black man to serve as Executive Secretary of that organization from 1919 to 1920. During Johnson's tenure as Executive Secretary he raised the awareness of Americans to the beatings, hangings, and lynching of Blacks Yet, though he worked tirelessly to secure passage of a federal anti lynching bill in Congress House of Representatives, the Senate defeated the bill. Finally, after 14 years .of service, James Weldon Johnson left the NAACP to return to the field of educa tion as a professor at Fisk University, teaching creative writing literature and leader ship skills. Johnson earned several prestigious awards, the NAACP Spingam Award and the Harmon Award for his writing God s Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons In Verse. In 1928, .Johnson died in a car crash in Maine, at the age of 67. He is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York. But, his music and his achievements will never die. Harambee!

c m Pastor Feels Local Agencies Should Take over 11 HKILoses Funding BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently, a Hillsborough County program given the responsibility of protecting at-risk children learned that it is in danger oflosing $65.5 million in state funding. The program's contract isinjeop. ardy because 8 children died while under their supervi sion. The Hillsborough Kids Inc. non-profit organization came into existence in 1999 It has the responsibility of protecting 2,500 children in Hillsborough County who have been or who are at risk of abuse. However the agenc y came under fire be cause during a 2y ear period eight of those chilaren rang ing in age from 4 months to 12 y ears hav e died Hillsborough Kids, Inc., had the highest death toll in the state among its peer or ganizations. Elder Charles Davis, Senior Pastor of College Hill Church Of God In Christ served more than 22 of his 30 years as a county em ployee in social services. Ad ditionally, he continues to work in the field in the pri vate sector with the church's Family Enrichment Center and Kinship Program. Elder Davis said, I read the article in the Sentinel about the deaths of those 8 children and I per sonally think it was tragic and very misfortunate. It is my understanding that HKI's contract is up for renewal and others outside of the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County may be applying to ... Senior Pastor of College Hill Church Of God In Christ provide the services that HKI currently provides. I believe that no one can say with any certainty that the tragedies that occurred would not have happened on someone else s watch, if in fact the state is using this as the reason for not renewing HKI' s contract. It is my belief that the people and leader ship here in Hillsborough County should make a state ment that whatever the state does the services offered should remain under HKI or some other agency in the county. Elder Davis said if the services do not remain under the auspices HKI or another organization in Hillsborough County, then there would be a loss of jobs. He further pointed out that agencies outside of this county are not familiar with the demo graphics of this county. We cannot have an out side agency deciding our des tiny as it relates to providing services for our children. The incidents related to the deaths of these children should be fully looked into and it should be determined Missing Child Alert A Florida Missing Child Alert has been issued for Kevin Fucien, a Black male, 5 feet tall, who was last seen carrying a black school bag, and Jacquelyn Julien, a Black female 16 years old, 5'5 tall, who was last seen wearing black jeans and a black or navy blue suit jacket. She was also carrying a school bag with the gold lettering "sp." Authorities said the chil dren were last seen in the area of Boo South 26th Av enue in Hollywood. The chil dren may be in the company of Guerline Paul, 37. If anyone has information on the whereabouts of these children contact the Holly wood Police Department at 1-954-9657-4357. if the appropriate actions were taken. I also believe that HKI should have the opportunity to make full disclo sure as to what happened. If there are any shortfalls on their part, then they should be mandated to correct them," Elder Davis said. c !< 0 a m m :a

NBAlockout Talks Turn Nasti NEW YORK Three days and 30 hours' worth of talks ended on a nasty note Thursday in NBA labor negotiations And only one thing seemed fairly certain: more games were likely to b-e cut. Possibly even the season. Players insist that's the outcome owners wanted all along "preordained," as union executive director Billy Hunter said. We've always felt there was still a place where they would just not go and they would lock us out as long as it would take in order to get us beyond that place There was never reall y a willingness to negotiate b eyond c e rtain points," union pres i d ent Derek Fisher of the Lakers said Ther e was just a line drawn and reg a rdless o f wha t s going on, how m a n y time s w e meet 'we' r e not going p ast that."'

Mission Accomplished: President Obama Ending Iraq War PRES. BARACK OBAMA The announcement by President Barack Obama that the U. S. will withdraw all of its troops from Iraq by De cember 31st brings the issue of the war full circle. By abandoning that tack, after the Iraqi parliament ap parently balked giving those troops immunity from the Iraqi legal system, Obama has committed to ending a more than eight year saga that has cost 4.479 American lives (out of 4, 797 coalition deaths over all), along with scores of injured troops and strained families and more than $8oo billion That saga ends, fittingly, with a sovereign Iraq making the decision to rid itself of the U. S. military presence. And it removes the possibility of a small, but potentially vulnera ble American target staying hind in the Green Zone. For Pres. Obama, the end of the war gives him another opportunity to declare a cam paign promise -and in this case, a defining one fulfilled. Man Needs $1 M To Remove 100 Pound Genitals WESLEY WARREN A Las Vegas man is looking to raise $1 million for a rare condition that has kept him homebound for most of his life. Wesley Warren, 47, needs $1 million for surgery to correct his Scrotal Elephantitis, a condition that has made his genitals swell to more than 100 pounds. The surgery is not cov ered by health insurance, so Warren is looking to raise the money himself. While the condition is typi cally seen in parts of Africa and caused by mosquito bites, he says that he has never been to any tropical area. Instead, he believes that his condition oc curred after he accidentally squeezed his testicles with his legs while moving around in bed. The next day, his scrotum was the size of a soccer ball. Fears Over Miami Beach Freaknik Event A wild Spring Break party that was banned years ago in Atlanta is corning to Miami Beach in 2012, and residents are already worried it could get outofhand. The event, Freaknik Miami, is scheduled for the weekend of March 10-11, according to the official website. For $350, par ticipants get an open bar bus ride from Atlanta to Miami Beach and a room at one of four area hotels. Though organizers are using the Freaknik name, they insist it has little to do with the now defunct Atlanta event, which became out of control and was shut down in the 1990s after reports of violence, lootings and rapes. "No one that was actually on Freaknik Atlanta is associated with Freaknik Miami, organ izer Otis Bailey said. We just pretty much wanted to use the name because of the brand, it kind of excites people and gets people talking about it. GUDES FUNERAl HOME Mr. Walter Pickett, Tampa.
