-t c Elderlv Newspaper Carrier AlleuediV_ Beaten Bv Police Then Jailed BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor NOTE: The Sentinel has chosen not to identify the because he fears retaliation. A 64-year-old Tampa man was allegedly beaten by Tampa Police and arrested Sunday. He was charged with unlawful solicitation of news papers and obstructing or op posing an officer with violence. According to a witness, the incident took place be tween 4:30 p.m and 5 p.m., Sunday, at the intersection of E. Lake Avenue and N 29th Street. The witness gave the fol lowing account of what took place: "I came up on the corner and I was talking to Johnny (Teel). He was telling me that some police officer told him to pack up and don't sell anymore papers (Tampa Tribune). He said he only had about 6 or 7 left and he was going to sell his papers. "About_ 15 or 20 minutes later, this officer stopped at the c orner and Johnny said, 'I think this is the officer."' The witness said the offi cer sat in his cruiser between 10 and 12 minutes, with traf fic having to go around him. The witness said the officer then pulled into a parking lot and continued to sit in his car. The witness said the offi cer said, "I told you not to sell anymore newspapers. Pack your stuff up." The witness said neither he nor Teel re .sponded and continued to stand on the corner. The wit ness said the _officer sat in the car about 15 minutes. "A man drove up in the parking lot and some people 1 went into the store. When they came out ; the man asked Johnny if he had a Tribune. At that point, the witness said, the officer exited his ve hicle and said, "I told you to pack your stuff up put your hands behind your back." FYI JOHNNYTEEL ... Arrested and charged with unlawful solicitation of newspapers The witness said Teel continued to stand there holding his newspapers. "He whipped out his stick and hit him. Johnny still didn't do it, and he hit again on the leg and Johnny started to stumble. He hit him again and Johnny fell. He hit Johnny again after he fell," the witness said. "Johnny should have just dropped the papers and put his hands behind his back. But, that officer was wrong hitting that man like that. There were a lot of peo ple up there with camcorders and phones," the witness said. He further stated that paramedics were called to treat Teel before he was transported to jail. He was re leased from the Hillsborough Jail after posting a bond of $2,250. The witness further stated that this is not the first time they have been harassed while selling the newspaper. He said he spoke with Major Gerald Honeiwell about the harassment and was told to tell the officer to contact him if there was a problem. "When I told the officer Major Honeywell said to call him, the officer said, 'you call him, you got his number, you call him.' The witness further stated that there are as many as four people at 'tl!at intersectiorr selling newspapers and they comply with the law. "We do what we're supposed to do, we wear our vests and every-Riverwalk Honorees Will Be Announced Todav Six persons who will be honored on the downtown River walk will be announced today (Tuesday) by Mayor Bob Buckhorn and the Friends of the Riverwalk.

I just hope it's safe for me to go back up there and sell my papers.' Teel, who also sells the Sentinel at that corner, did not return telephone calls. The City Ordinance states that news carriers can sell newspapers with the excep tion of 10 identified corners in the City limits. On Sundays, anyone is al lowed to solicit on the city corners with the exception of the ten corners prohibited at anytime. Police Deparbnent Release Statement When contacted by the Sentinel, the Tampa Police Department said in a written statement, "This is a situation where the subject would have received a notice to appear in court, but instead he became combative and chose to fight the officer. In this Circum stance, the suspe'ct's aggres...: sive actions towards the officer made it necessary for him to use force to stop the suspect's resistance and make the arrest." According to the police re port, Officer S. Cicolello observed the subject selling the Tampa Tribune at the corner of 29th Street, Nand Lake Avenue. E. The subject was not wearing the required vest and was also inhibiting the flow of traffic. Officer S Cicolello parked his marked unit and made contact with the subject on foot. OfficerS. Cicolello explained to the subject that he was in violation of City Or dinance 6-265 by not wearing the required vest, impeding traffic flow, and having no credentials from the Tampa Tribune.

I Comm. les Mi.ller On The Square I We usually applaud community activist Marilyn Smith for her tireless diligence in advocating for citizens of Hillsborough County. Few other people would do what she does. But this time, we were not amused by the bigotry she demonstrated at a commission meeting. Commissioner Les Miller and one other colleague found themselves literally backed against a wall regarding a motion to create a fifth single-member district to potentially elect an Hispanic commissioner. Though out-hooted and outflanked, Les Miller stood tall and did the right thing. And forthat, we thank him. But according to news sources, Ms. Marilyn Smith, who vehemently objected to any idea of an Hispanic addition to County was overheard to say Les Miller's motion would "GHE'ITO-IZE" Hillsborough County. Were commissioners and audience members shocked? No, a mouse could be heard. Yet, in his classic 6-foot style, Comm. Miller remained the perfect professional as he hammered his reasons home for all to see and to hear. Yes, we supo::t port the idea of an Hispanic seat on County Commisw sion, just as we fought for African American CJ representation and for female inclusion on that same commission. Comm.

At this writing, there have been no published slave nar ratives, WPA interviews, di aries, or any other ;written documentation by slaves or their descendants about the use of quilts by slaves to alert other slaves about escape routes, plans, or safe-houses. However, a bqok, Hidden In Plain Vieu1, published in 1999, features a story told to one of the authors by a Black female quilt vendor nam,ed Ozella McDaniel Williams. Williams, a South Car olina former attorney I quilt vendor, provided author Jacqueline Tobin with a "secret quilt code" over a three-year period," which she indicated was passed down in her family orally by deceased relatives. According to Williams, certain quilt blocks told slaves how to get ready to escape what to do on the trip, how to confuse slave hunters, and how to get to safe territory and other information leading to freedom. In fact, there is evidence that ancient Mricans prac ticed the weaving of textiles that "preserved their aesthetic principles, religious and cul tural traditions, and history within the patterns and hues of fabrics." The Asante people, who live in parts of Ghana and Cote d'Iroire (Ivory Coast), were widely known as the earliest weavers. They used raffia fibers to make long narrow strips of cloth, which they sewed together to make a larger cloth (Kente). Colors, patterns, symmetry and ap pliques held symbolic mean ing. Indeed, quilting by Blacks has been influenced by four civilization from Central and West Africa to include the Mandespeaking people (Guinea, Mali, Senegal, and Burkina Faso); the Yoruba and Fan peoples (Republic of Benin and Nigeria); the Ejagham peoples (Nigeria and Cameroons); and the K01;1go peoples (Zaire and Angola). Because of the heavy trading of textiles from Africa throughout the Americas, the traditions of regions of origin became intermixed and non distinct Regional Mrican weaving patterns helped tribal mem bers recognize people from far distances (warring tribes and traveling hunting parties), helped keep evil spirits away, and symbolized the rebirth of the ancestral power of the cre ator or wearer. The number of patterns or change in a Pilttern was im portant for royalty and priests because they conveyed pres tige power, status, on wealth. Furthermore, a family's tradi tions, heritage and lineage de signed on a quilt became a lasting record of births, mar riages, geographical location and plantation life. Finally, the use of a circle or diamond pattern was sym bolic of the cycles of life with each point representing life, death, and rebirth. The knowledge, power, and intel ligence of the quilt creator and wearer were conveyed by the use of script in a native language or synibol. Against this background, that some historians support the idea of the use of quilts by the Underground Railroad is understandable. Harambee.
