However, the proposal was defeated in a 52 vote Commissioner .Miller said the 4-3 plan to have four single-member districts and_ three at-large seats were adopted in 1983. At the time, Hispanics represented a little more than of the County s population Now HispaniCs are 25% of the population yet they have no representation on the board. To me that is taxation wHhout representation. I want this board to go forward with public hearings for a 5-2 plan to change the make:.up of the board to represent the community," Commiss ioner Miller said. He further said the plan would allow smaller districts and would give Hispanics representation where they have none now. "Our Hispanic community has grown by leaps and bounds. Thi s would give them access for a Hispanic to be elected in Hillsborou g h Coun ty Du ring the meeting, Marilyn Smith, a r esident who frequents County Commi s sion m eetings u sed th e wor d ghetto to describ e th e propo s al.

HOLTON Sentinel City Last members of the community attended the Tampa Police Depart ment's 24th Annual Black History Program. The theme is "The Front Porch -Where Neighbors Become Family." Chief Jane Castor and Major Gerald Honeywell welcomed those in atten dance to the program. Following the welcome, standing before a backdrop designed by Tampa Police Officer. Les Richardson, Detective Sonja Wise talked about things that take place on the front porch in many neighborhoods and communities. She spoke in a monologue that depicted events that everyone could relate to in his or her own neighborhood. As she spoke, she then in vit ed each award recipient to join her on the front porch. Detective Wise shared with the audience the reason contribution each award re cipient made to improve the quality of life in the commu nity The recipients were Sgt. Kenny Norris, Mrs. Queen Miller, Mrs. Sonia Franklin, president of the Tampa Chapter of Sisters Network, Inc., and Ms. Kay Andrews of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin to join her on the front porch. Sgt. Norris was recog. nized for the many lives he touches mentoring to children in the neighborhood. Mrs. Franklin, who is pres ident of the cancer support group was recognized for the impact her organization has on the community. Chief Castor did not for get the Sentinel's willing ness to support the police department in combating vi olent crimes committed with guns last year. After ten people died dur ing' a two-week period, the Sentinel provided free ad vertising to alert the commu nity to a gun buyback. The event was the most in recent years. The police de partment collected more Than 1,000 guns. Mrs. Franklin was hon ored for her continuous ef forts to get the word out about breast cancer in the African American commu nity. Last year, the organiza tion held two community walks. Mrs. Queen Miller was recognized for her work in forming the College Hill Crime Watch Association 25 years ago. "I felt humbled by the award. It was kind of ex citing for me, she said. Mrs. Miller has lived in her East Tampa neighborhood for more than 6o years. But, crime began to take over the neighborhood and she felt something needed to be done Mrs. Miller said the homes of senior citizens would be burglarized and food and clothing taken. "It was pathetic because they were taking advantage of the people. They only got money once a month and then every thing was being stolen." Mrs. Miller said she wrote to then Governor Askew, who directed law en forcement to clean up the neighborhood. The Tampa Police Department provided information on starting the Crime Watch Program and it was a success. The program is still in ex:.. istence and meets once a month at Lee Davis Neigh borhood Service Center Mrs. Miller said. Members of the Tampa Police Department Black His tory Committee were: Major Gerald Honeywell, Detective Sonja Wise, Deirdre Joseph, Captain Diane Hobley-Burney Janelle McGregor, Lydia Pizarro, Ida Walker Captain Rocky Ratliff, Corporal Les Richardson, Officer Mark Holloway, Officer Veronica Hamilton, and Crystel Sampson. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last month, oil disbursed at the Children 's Board of Hillsborough County led em ployees to contact the Tampa Police Department. A spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department said employees discovered a substance in their workplace on Monday, January 30th, when they reported to work and called police. The Tampa Police responded to what they said was a crimb:ial mis chief report. However, after an investi gation police determined that no crime had occurred based on the information given to them, the spokesperson said. Dan Casseday, spokesman for the organiza tion said, "We were told that a friend of Dr. Panacek wanted to do a blessing of the building and that was all we were told. "We don't know what type of oil was used, but it was cleaned up in a matter of sev eral days," he said He further stated that it was done on the weekend and after hours. However, board member Pete Edwards felt the inci-: dent was directed at him. He said a special board meeting will be called to discuss a re cent incident. He said they are currently trying to restore the tape from January 29th, when the incident took place. N SXJ Edwards further said "I wouldn't have about it had the reporter not con-tacted me. During the board meeting on January 26th, I asked some demanding ques tions. It was a contentious meeting. But I'm not a bully, I'm not a demon. I'm not bitter, but I'm going to get to the bottom of it. I'mjuststunned that it occurred," he said: Edwards further stated that to his knowledge two board members knew about the Incident before it oc curred "She (Dr. Panacek) should have notified every one, all ten members of the board. You can't do that, she should have told everyone on the board," he said. The two other African American board members are "11 Ms. Valerie Goddard and b Ms. Doretha Edgecomb. :a Ms. Goddard said, "I had absolutely no prior en knowledge of anything."

Short of stature, but towenng wtth courage and brimming with the knowledge of how to get things done, she will not hesitate to tell you that, if needbe, she knows somebody who knows somebody who has the power to achieve the impossible. Perhaps, Ms. Miller is related to E. F. Hutton. For, when she speaks, wherever she speaks, everybody listens. Just recently, Tampa's own royalty was picked by representatives of the Tampa Police Department to receive c its Unsung Community Hero Award. Traditionally prea: sented during Black History Month, the award salutes LL Tampa citizens who have been a force for community action and police relations. We can testify first hand that <( our Queen Miller bas indeed, been an example of the > award she's received. Most certainly, her voice on issues of community deen velopment, civil rights, education crime and other arew nas of human interest have been both timely and often memorable as with eyes and words she pinned her op-a:> position down and made people understand what they W ought or ought not to do. > One might call Queen Miller a perpetual cheerleader W for the Tanipa community. The fact that she is Black is a God-given bonus for a woman who sees the humanity in :I: everyone regardless of race, creed, or color. en As Queen Miller concluded, when she received her ffi award, "It should be togetherness that should last, not :::::1 just [the Unsung Community Hero Award ceremony]." a. However, we'd like to correct Ms. Miller's comment. For, Z it should be Queen Miller who should last, for, what iii would Tampa do without her? ..J ..J :::::: m Black America And Nadonal lean Month t= Z How could we allow the month of February to end without reminding you that National Heart Month < is also celebrated during February, and that this c year's focus has been on women and heart dis-a: ease? And as you might guess, the saga of the Black Ex-0 perience includes true-stories of sadness brought about ii by a disparity disease of epidemic proportions in the Black community. The risk ofheart.disease for Black people begins at a much younger age than is true for any other group besides Native Americans. According to a 2009 University of California, San Francisco, and San Francisco General Hospital study, "one in 100 Black adults develop heart failure in their 30s and 40s at a rate 20 times higher than that of similarly aged white men and women." Even more daunting is the fact, Black adults who develop heart disease early have at least one of four risk factors, which are rampant among Black people. Having high bloOd pressure, being overweight, having low levels of "good" cholesterol, or suffering from chronic kidney disease doubles the risk of heart failure among African Americans. It certainly doesn't take much imagination to consider what having two or more of the above factors can do to the human heart. Furthermore, because heart disease often has no symptoms that women can detect without medical intervention, Black women especially must be vigilant about o:t their heart-health. w So, not only do we salute the month of February for C!J Black Heritage, but we celebrate February for Black f Health. Take both celebrations to heart. Tampa Bridges Its Economv President Barack Obama has been trying to sell the country on the idea that to build and repair roads, bridges, dams, schools and other infrastructures would be good for the nation. The President believes that by doing these things, it would create jobs, grow the economy, lead to a reduction iQ the deficit and make life better for everyone in the UnitedStates. Apparently, the City of Tampa believes the same thing. The proof of this belief can be seen in the City of Tampa's major overhaul of its bridges. One can say the City of Tampa is bridging its econ omy with upgrading and re pairing bridges inside the city limits. Some may say this is being done because of a major polit ical party that is holding its national convention here. Still others may offer other rea sons. Whatever the reason, re tooling the City's bridges is work that needed to be done, and in doing so, it created some jobs. Since the city has to pur chase materials to make these repairs, it increases the need for an increase in the produc tion of those materials. The City did the Cass Street Bridge, the Platt Street Bridge and is now working on the Columbus Drive Bridge. The Laurel Street Bridge is next on the rehab list. Now, all we need to do is get the county, state and the federal government to join this rehabilitation program. That would certainly create a lot of jobs. In the effort, every level of government would do its own. I hear talking heads and po litical figures always saying, Dr. Israel 'Ike' Tribble, Jr. :Educator, Intellectual, Visionarv And Author A friend once said, "I wasn't sure that I really liked or appreciated Romare Bearden's art until 'Ike' Tribble opened the Bay Area's first African American Art Museum. I then had the opportunity to expe rience Bearden's wide range of art expression, up close." Of Israel "Ike" Tribble's death in 2003, Marc Morial, the National Urban League's Chief Executive Officer wrote, "Indeed, Ike's work in Florida was the inspi ration for the Urban League s signature education initiative, the Campaign for African American Achievement and the National Achievers Soci ety. Both men's remarks speak to the impact that Ike Tribble had on individuals com munities and nations For children and for public hous ing residents, Tribble was also an example of the adage "Your street address doesn t determine your future." Tribble was raised by a single mother in New Jersey public housing. A discerning teacher recognized Tribble's potential and placed him in college preparatory courses instead of in trade school courses in which he had originally been enrolled. After graduating from New Jersey's Montclair State Uni versity, Tribble joined the U. S. Army becoming a captain in Army Intelligence Upon leaving the Tribble enrolled in graduate school and eventually earned a doctorate from Stanford University. Tribble then embarked upon an 'extraordinary ca reer' in higher education from which many Black Americans reaped lasting benefits. initiated Amer iea's first Black history class in the predominantly white San Mateo Union High School District in California. Later, he served as a history instructor and administrator at Mills College In Oakland, California before becoming a special assistant to the Secretary of the u.s; Department of Education followed by a stint with the U. S. Department of Defense as the director of vol unteer education. These career choices led to Dr. Tribble being selected as the Vice Chancellor for ac ademic programs for the Florida Board of Regents in Tallahassee in 1982. By 1984, Tribble's work and promi nence caused the McKnight Foundation to hire him to imgovernments don't create jobs. We all know that is a bunch of hogwash. Legisla tors, mayors, governors, and other elected officials ought to know this very well. Ask them where their salaries come from, who do law officials, firefighters, and soldiers work for. Whose job is it to maintain and build roads, dams, bridges and the nation s infra structure? The answer, the governments. How does the government do this? They hire people More than likely, the City of Tampa's bridge rehab idea did not come from the President. It does, however, prove that the President is right when he says a mass rehabbing of in frastructures would create money and stimulate the economy. The City's program doesn't create nearly enough jobs, but it is a start. It is a start that other levels of government ought to start. So many infra structures all over this nation are dangerously in need of re pairs. It is time to get to it. Don't damn the idea, use it to bridge the economy and that will put us on the road to an economical recovery. plement a $15 million grant program called tlie Florida Education Fund (FEF). Tampa became the home base for the FEF's mission of ex panding educational opportu nities for Black and other minorities. Indeed, under Tribble's leadership, education for Blacks in Florida began to thrive. His leadership of FEF resulted in establishing Cen ters for Excellence for Black school age children in major Florida cities and full scholar ships for Blacks seeking grad uate and undergraduate degrees. In less than 10 years, the foundation enabled 166 men and women to earn their doc torates at Florida universities and more than 500 other col lege graduates to attend Florida law schools. By 2003, more than 250 law school graduates were practicing law in Florida. Tribble established the Tampa African American Museum, which featured a Romare Bearden art collection. "Ike" also served on the boards of the National Urban League, Nation's Bank, the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, and the Tampa Housing Authority. In 1997, he became the first Black chairman of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Com merce. Nevertheless, this human dynamo left us all too soon when Israel "Ike" Tribble died of leukemia (2003). However, he left a magni ficent, indelible on the Tampa community. Brother Ike shall not be forgotten. Harambee!

"It is deeply disappointing to see a company build a business off my Chinese. name without my permission, use the number 23 and even attempt to use the names of my children," Jordan said. "This complaint is not about money. It's about principle and protecting my name." Jordan further said that any damages won would be directly reinvested in promot ing basketball iQ China. His Airness faces an uphill battle, so says the Wall Street Journal.

According to Jordan's attor neys, the Hall of Farner may be open to such a deal.

Obama Chicago Bulls' guard Derrick Rose speaks to supporters of President Barack Obama during a campaign fundraiser at Navy Pier April14, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. Pres. Barack Obama is collecting major fundraising support from a small, influential g 'roup never truly tapped befor e by a presiden tial candidate: the National Basketball Association. The Obama fundraiser held Thursday night at the Orlando home of the Dallas Mavericks Vince Carter was only the latest example of the strong backing the president is getting from former and current NBA players. Chicago Bulls star and league MVP Derrick Rose spoke at one of the events kicking off Obama's reelection campaign last spring. Former New York Knicks star Alan Houston also hosted a fund raiser. A long list of players that inCluded Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City), Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers) and Carmelo Anthony (New York) committed to play in an "Obama Classic exhibition game last December that would serve as a campaign fundraiser. It was postponed amid the lo ckou t but still supposed to happen this summer. Obama sup-. porters will pay $200 for the lowest-priced seats, $5,000 to sit courtside. The embrace by the players is not surprising; Pres. Obama is an avowed hoops fan and. perhaps the 'most NBA-versed president in his tory.
