HOLTON Sentinel City Editor 0 en w :: Eckerd Youth Alternatives .,_ (EYA) and the University Area Community Development Center, 14013 N. 22nd Street, will host the second Commu nity-Based Child Welfare Community Forum.

Beginning on July 1st, Mrs. Lorita Shirley, Executive Director, MS. LORlTASHIRLEY Exeeutlw Director ofEckerd Youth Alternatives of EYA, and her staff at Eckerd Youth Alternatives, will replace Hillsborough Kids Inc. Mrs. Shirley will be on hand to discuss the transition of child welfare services from one agency to the other.

She is encouraging those families to come out and share their concerns about how to improve the services offered. Mrs; Shirley stated that the first meetings are going to take place in the zip codes with the highest number of children removed from homes. She feels that in order to address the problem, the agency must not only be connected to the community, but it must also accept feedback from the residents on how to remove obstacles for improved per formance.

I was re lieved, but it's a loss for both sides. I used to always tell Byron that in life there are choices, decisions, and consequences behind you r action. Whether it was intentional or unintentional, there is always a price to be paid. "As a result of my son's death, I pondered the thought of him becoming an organ donor.

Recovered from inJury ever with us because he lives in the lives of others. "Our hearts and prayers go out to Reginald's family. In this case there are no real win ners." Patty's grandmother, Elder Michelle Patty, said the jury deliberated for about 3 hours before reaching the guilty verdict. "We're definitely glad, but there is no celebration in the verdict. We hold no malice or hatred. Our young people need to realize that there are conse quences for their actions and that's what took place here. A person is not going to get up after he's been shot, this is not television. All we have is a grave. They will be able to see him, we don't have that op tion," Elder Patty said.

Y:eatures Thousands 01 Tampans Join countrv In .. 'Million Hildie March' Saturday, thousands of people took to the street in a cry for justice for a slain teenager. The march was called the "One Million Hoodie March" in memory of Trayvon Martin. The death of the teenager is reminiscent of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Trayvon Martin is the son of Ms. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. His grandmother is Mrs. Marian Spotford Evans, a Tampa native, and he was re lated to the late Mrs. Audrey Spotford. The rally took place at the intersection of N. Dale Mabry and W. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ms. Laura McElroy, spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department said it went smoothly. "It was an uneventful, peaceful demon stration." Cedric McCray said, u was very moving for me. There were people of diverse backgrounds who came out to support a common cause. I think the message is that people are basically fed up." Ms. Tonia Lewis said, "As you heard TRAYVON chanted throughout the crowd, you couldn't help but pray, cry, and stand for what you believed in. It took a tragedy to have the outpouring of people coming together of all nationalities. "I just felt the Lord move through people globally to stand up for a change, and merely to say, they are tired. "I signed Trayvon Mar tin's petition, I marched and rally for Trayvon Martin, and will continue to for Trayvon Martin. But, to all the leaders, politicians, churches, NAACP and elders what are you going to do about what's happening in our own backyard?" Ross Anderson said, "It is unfortunate that it took an incident like this for a young African American male to be killed, based on what he was wearing and his skin color, before our community would really come together and address some really important issues our youngsters are facing, especially being stereotyped. (Photography by BRUNSON). Cindy Robinson, Quedirah Cromartie, Louniesha CroDUU" tie, and .Jabmari Cromartie wore shirts in loving memory of Trayvon Martin. They also had a can of iced tea and a bag of Skittles. Shkazn1u and Kenny participated in the march. I _...;-H (I\ r) ,...

Yet, both their lives are interconnected by the kindred society in which they lived. And the outcome of their destiny is no doubt, a wheel set in motion, long before either of them had been born. 1 Trayvon Martin was ldlled by another young man who called himself a volunteer neighborhood watchman and fancied himself an unsung police oflicer. Nicholas Und sey, for some upside down reason decided to vandalize automobiles and in the process ran afoul of an unsuspecting police officer whom he ldlled. At a tender high school age (Nicholas is 17 years youug; so was Trayvon) both young men who just happened to be Black and an other young man who identified himself as so-called white-Hispanic, have becOme a part of a tradition that is very American. CaD it "aodetal cannibalism," the habit of eating our young At the printing of this editorial, we had been informed that buses were leaviDg Tampa on their way to Florida filled with angry protestors, family weD-wishers and onlookers who know history when they see it. What they would do when they arrived outside a still gated community is anybody's guess. If they are to a certainly bereaved family of the fallen teenager, then such is underStandable. However, if they had come to complain about the socalled "Stand Your Ground" law, which was being pillo ried as part of the reason a wannabe cop shot in supreme malice an innocent Black youth, then maybe, a better place to converge would have been Tallahassee And what about Nicholas IJndsey? Though his future is dead, how shall he die? W"dl he see 20 years behind bars, or life? Two young men have become poster chil dren for what still happens too often in the hinterlands of America. Will we ever learn? I Ecl a: 0 D o you remember the little toy you used to get as a consolation prize? We're referring to the toy called "Etch-a-Sketch." For those of you who have no idea what we're talking about, long before "Gameboy's" or little electronic giz mos that went "Beep-beep-beep," Etch-a-Sketch had cor nered the market. You drew the pietures on a cellophane page then, in boredoui, destroy the whole thing by lifting up the cellophane and erasing the sketch, hence, the name "Etch-a-Sketch." Most of the living world was under the assumption Etch-a-Sketch had gone, but obviously, w e were wrong. Here recently, Republican think-taakers have exca vated the long-dead idea of Etch-a-Sketch as an ideal par ody of certain Republican presidential rivals. For,just as easily as ui Etch-a-Sketcher might erase a poor picture, so (say eertaiD Republican whiz-kids) do such candidates as Mitt Romney say one thing, then puB up the cellophane and skdeh to something else. Needless to say, the come-back Etch-a-Sketch industry is making a killing. However, there is one unfortunate commonallty that ., continues to impress itself upon many American minds. w When thinking about Etch-a-Siretc:h, one can't help think ing about the American economy, how one day, it is one a.: thing, and the next day, the sketch has a different their egos than others.

Black Wollen Firsts In Aviation S eeing the movie Red Tails automatically led me to research Black female pilots in the military and travel industry Generally Bessie Cole man is the extent of public knowledge about Black fe male pilots. However, today, there are a growing number of Black women who fly military jets and helicopters as well as do mestic airline jumbo jets. In 1 921 wh e n Bessie Coleman was licensed in Paris by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (F. A. 1.), she became the first Black (me n and women) to receiv e an international pilot's licen se. Since that time, the r e are at least 100 Black female commercial pi lots and an impressive list of Black female military pilots. A group of Black f e mal e pilots, founded and headed by U. Col. Beverly Armstrong, formed an organiza tion, The Bessie Coleman Foundation in 1995 as a vehicle for keeping the legacy of Bessie Coleman aliv e and to e ncourag e Black women to pursue aviation careers. The group included many history-making women in the aviation industry. Among them is the presi dent, Lt. Col. Beverly Armstrong, who became the 10th Black woman to graduate from the United States Army pilot school in 1986, joined by Shelia Chamberlain who was the fifth Black woman to graduate from the U. S. Army pilot school as well as the Army's first Black f e male intelli gen ce combat pilot (Grenada /Panama and Persian Gulf War) Other firsts among the group ii 1clude Col. Chris tine Knighton, first woman to serve as Combat Arms officer in the U. S. An:ity; Doreen Branch (private pilot) who owns a Grumman Cheetah and was the first Black femal e student to fly out of Washington Ex ecutive Field in Maryland; Lt. Col. Norma Ely, one of the first two graduates of Florida Memorial College's Aviation Science Program ; and Dr. Anne Sulton, Esq., Atlanta, Geo rgia's first li ce nsed (1977 ) Black f e mal e pilot. Both Chamberlain. and Armstrong served in Army intelligence, with Arm strong serving on a military intelligence mission on the North Korean border. In fact, Armstrong was re cruited and trained by the Air Force International Guard while serving in Korea. General (Ret.) Dr. Irene Trowell-Harris was the first Black woman to become a general officer in the U. S. National Guard, and the first woinan to have a Tuskegee Airman Chapt e r and a mentoring award named in her ho n o r Another first" in the organization is Shirley Tyus, the first Black female pilot hired by United Airlines and the first officer to fly the Boeing m for United Airlines on the United State s to France route Currently, a number of Black female fighter jet and helicopt e r pilots serve in our Army Air Force Navy and Nati o nal Guard With di s tinc tion. America s comme rcial aviation industry also has Black women who contribute to the airline industry's na tional and international flight services In the future, I will share more examples of capable Black women who have bad great impact on military and commercial aviation as well as America s fight for free dom a t home and abroad Until then, youn g Black women, look to the s kies, you can fly too.

-f White Seells To Alpha Kappa Alpha Sororitv Remain Free To Hold Convention Pending Appeal Julv 21-211n San FranciSco panel on volunteering. Alpha N Kappa Alpha will also open the "Unsung AKA Members of the Civil Rights Movement Museum" that will chronicle and graphically dramatize members' contributions to the Movement. Last Friday, Tampa attor ney Grady Irvin, Jr., entered a motion on behalf of his client, former Commissioner Kevin White. He is asked a federal judge to allow White to remain free, pending the outcome of an appeal. White was convicted of seven of the ten charges he faced in November 2011. Ear lier this month, he was ordered to. serve 3 years in federal prison. A report date had not been established at his sentenc ing hearing. Attorney Irvin cited the argument that "the defense made at the Rule 29 stages of the trial --arguing that the Public Transportati9on Com mission (PTC) did not partake in the use or receipt of federal funds, and therefore an "entity receiving or using federal funds" type nexus was not sa tisfied." Attorney Irvin stated that the court has the authority to allow a defendant to remain free pending the outcome of an appeal. The court usually al lows such a request when the KEVIN WHITE .;. Wanta to remain free defendant is not considered a flight risk and does not pose any danger to the public. Attorney Irvin also stated in the motion, "White, who has no violent history and who has ChargeS that do not relate to any violent act, has been .at liberty since pre-trial and has not had any violations, includ ing restrictions related to travel." The attorney also acknow ledged in the motion that the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida, would oppose the request.

For11er Blake Grad looks Back On Pro11isin1 Career : BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer As a student at Howard W. Blake High School, Tony Jackson took advantage of the school's technical and vocational courses. He worked hard and gained scholarships to several schools as a brick and block mason, and actually competed in a statewide competition. Jackson graduated in 1967, and like many of his classmates and other young men at the time, he was drafted into the military, and was sent to Vietnam where he fought as a M -60 machine TONY JACKSON gunner from 1967 until1971.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor In January, employees of the Hillsborough County Children's Board contacted police after discovering an oil substance in their work area. They contacted the Tampa Police Department, but later learned that the building had been "blessed" at the request of the admin istrator. Last week, during their regular board meeting, the subject of the blessing was discussed. However, no real action was taken. Board member Pete Edwards felt that the "cleansing" was directed at him after he and Dr. Luann Panacek, Chief Executive Officer, of the Children's Board exchanged words. During the board meeting on Thursday, Edwards called for Dr. Panacek to be suspended for 30 days without pay, followed by a 90-day probation. But, no one would second his motion. "When contacted by the Sentinel, Edwards said, "For whatever reason and we may never know why, no one would second my motion .... I had my day, I'm moving on, and the taxpayers will have to have to decide if they will listen to the board or to the chair. As far as I am concerned, the matte r is closed." Edwards further stated that he believes if a lesser paid employee "would have been fired long before the next board meeting." The oil, of unknown origin, was disbursed around the Children's Board of Hillsborough County follow ing the January meeting. A review of the tape showeJi Dr. Panacek and an unidentified woman entering the building on a Sunday. The Tampa Police Department responded to the building and after an inves tigation, determined that no crime had been committed based on the information given to them, a department spokesperson said. At the time the incident took place, when contacted by the Sentinel, Dan Casseday, spokesman for the organization said, "We were told that a friend of Dr. Panacek wanted to do a blessing of the building." During the meeting last week, Edwards asked for the identity of Dr. Panacek's friend, but she declined, and no other board member requested that she disclose the person's identity. Edwards further stated that to his knowledge two board members knew about the incident before it occurred. "She (Dr. Panacek) should have noti fied everyone, all ten mem.:. hers 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 Ms. Valerie Goddard and Ms. Doretha Edgecomb. Ms. Goddard said she had no knowledge of the incident until the February board meeting. Ms. Edgecomb said she learned about it after it had taken place. try, and received two purple hearts for wounds I got during battle.

"We are not putting them Guveniles) in the same area as the adults. We can house them 21 days unless a judge says oth erwise The average stay of a juvenile in our jail is 1odays. "This is not a rehabilitative program. The courts deter mine what programs they go to." Sheriff Judd said the Department of Juvenile Justice charged $293 -a-day to house juveniles in jail. "We've asked why this cost continues to escalate, and w e feel the taxpayers were being ripped off. The Florida legis lation changed that, so now w e can house them at a third of the cost. We have to look out for the tax payers of Polk County. "I have housed everyone DJJ and he courts have told SHERIFF GRADY JUDD us to house. We have had some under the age of 10. We don't put them in a sleeping dorm. They are put in another area." Sheriff Judd said they are doing what's right, and they don't determine who is housed. "We get the worse of the worse. I'm comfortable we will win this, because we 're doing it the right way. "We are accredited, and DJJisnot." Sheriff Judd said they have more space and hold ing areas for juveniles than before, and their job is to keep them safe, secure, and clean. "We will review their alle gations, and our attorneys are already looking into it."
