Feature c! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------m Pastor Filed Paperwork To sue Betore Arrest For Moving Folks Into Abandoned House i Hillsborough County Sheriffs deputies arrested Tampa Pastor Tami Robinson and Samantha Gavin on October 7th for Adverse Possession of a home abandoned in foreclosure. Deputies said Robinson had filed a notice of adverse pos session several weeks earlier and Gavin was living in the home. Robinson had reportedly hand-served deputies a declaratory judgment lawsuit for related harassment at a different adverse possession home earlier. Both women were charged with burglary, and if convicted, they could serve prison sentences. Robinson, a mortgage broker, pastors the Well Pavilion Ministry Church in the 3400 block of Sanchez Street. In the lawsuit, it explains that the nature of the harass ment as abuse of civil rights, and the legal basis of the adverse possessor's rights. The pleading recognized the nature of such harassment against which most victims have little or no defense, owing to the high cost of legal assistance. It asks the court to declare Robinson's rights with respect to adverse possession, and to enjoin the Sheriff and deputies to leave her alone, barring any court order or trespassing complaint from the actual owner. Pastor Robinson said she's never profited from adverse possession, but she knows people who have. My reason for doing this is because I'm a pastor, and I saw it as a benefit for misplaced families who could at least afford to pay off the liens. "My vision is also for women with children who've been displaced to have a place to live. I think this can be very beneficial, and I don't understand how they can say we're misinterpreting the law." Pastor Robinson said all you have to do is ride around and look for these homes. "These are homes that basically have been deemed vacant or abandoned by Hillsborough County Code Enforcement. The properties hadn't been maintained, and these people move in, make PASTOR TAMI ROBINSON repairs, clean things up, and pay the taxes. How can they be living for free? "In the case of Ms. Gavin, she is a member of my church, and needed a place to live. She was in the first home when deputies came and gave hr 24 hours to leave. I came out, showed them that I had filed the paperwork, and I was told adverse possession was illegal and unconstitutional." Pastor Robinson said she had contacted the actual owners of the property to let them know she was claiming them under adverse possession. "The Property Appraiser's Office is also supposed to contact the owners. "As (ar as Ms. Gavin is concerned, there was another property I was working on for another family when she was displaced. I put that family on hold and allowed Ms. Gavin to move into that home. Now, she's been denied access to that house and all of her belongings. When the deputies found out she was the same person I had helped before, that's when we were arrested." Pastor Robinson said the lawsu it was filed prior to their arrests, and she doesn't have a scheme going on. "I was trying to help out a family, and this is what hap pened. "As far as access to the homes is concerned, no one has to break in to these hous es. There was a sliding glass door open to Ms. Gavin's house, and that's how she gained access. The locks were changed after she moved in. All of the houses I've seen have been vandalized, or the doors left unlocked or open. On the Adverse :D ..... Possession statute, Assistant 0) State Attorney, Ada 1'1.) Carmona, said filing paperwork doesn't give anyone 1'1.) rights to the property. "That only shows that documents were filed through the clerk s office, but is not a legal process," said Carmona. "The same thing applies to abandoned and foreclosed homes. In either case, the home is owned by either an individual or a lending insti tution." Carmona said in modern times when the law has been applied, it's been in cases where there was a lot of land connected to a sub-division. "The way the adverse pos session is being applied right now is outright theft," said Carmona: "You can't take over a house that's been abandoned or foreclosed under adverse possession. That's not what that law allows you to do. There is a huge misunderstanding of what this law says, and the problem is peo ple are interpreting it to suit their own purpose." ., r-0 :D c )> (/) m z :::t z m r;OJ c: r rz 'lJ c: al r-ROOM will no Ci) .:r m c m < m longer substitute -4 c: m (/) c )> z c ., :!! c

Indeed, Ameri-cans' response to the Obama-Romney election cam paigns leave us with an uneasy understanding of how so many people are scammed out of their homes and their money. Too many of us fail to use the simple tools of research to distinguish between facts, fiction, lies, and the truth of cam paign rhetoric and smooth-talking "sound-byte" politicians and their legions of clone robots. Most certainly, if you have no money or health insurance c and need help finding a job, who would you choose to help a: you? Would you choose someone who has a 36-month his&&.. tory of orchestrating employment retention and new jobs C for more than 4 million people in the harshest of eco nomic times, or would you choose someone with a history >: of years of orchestrating company buy-outs and plant clos111( ings, leading to thousands of unemployed workers and a history ofleading a state to become nearly last (4-th) in job W creation during more prosperous economic times? Would you choose someone who has publicly and fiscally > supported assistance to companies to keep them from clos a: ing and leaving millions unemployed; fought to extend un employment benefits, and food stamp assistance, and W risked his political career to see that most Americans have C health insurance coverage or someone who said he doesn't "care about the poor," or the "47 percent who doesn't pay en taxes"? ::J If you choose the latter, please visit our office soon. We would certainly like to sell you a nice new Gandy Bridge. Ina.. deed, what is most peculiar about scams is none of the z scammers puts a gun to anyone's head and says, "Follow me i= or else."

Most likely, it was a voice of reason among his campaign committee who opinioned, "Now is the time for us to do damage control." Whatever the reason, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney decided apology was the best policy regarding the horrendous statement he made about American voters and 47 percent. So, in a subdued tone on a usually not-subdued Fox Chan nel news interview, this is what Mitt Romney said. Said he, sometimes in campaigning, something doesn't come out right. Therefore, "in this case, I said something that was just completely wrong." But now that the fox had 'fessed up to maligning the chickens, did it change anything? Let's talk turkey. When historians review probable provocative comments during the Obama-Romney race, one of the most blatant racist statements will be Romney's' "47 percent." Though Romney supporters will hoot and squeal over our accusation, regardless whether it was clothed in comments about taxes, economics, or other is sues, the major unread issue in almost every American's mind will have been the questions, "Was Romney referring to Black people?" and "How do I really feel about having had a Black President of the United States?" Electing a Black man as our nation's Chief Executive will go down in history as one of America' s most shining hours ... akin to mankind's landing on the moon and to the first mobile probe on the sands of Mars. But the moon and Mars are miles away. So, Romney apologized for his" 4 7 percent." And because of his 1V-remake, many of us accepted his apology. But per haps, Romney did not see a ghost. Consider what caused him to apologize was his own reflection. Black Hlstorv Month In london And In The Unhed Kingdom: Week One If we lived in London or other cities in the United King dom, we would be celebrating Black History Month the en tire month of October. While Black History is celebrated in February in America and Canada, important events and people in the African Diaspora (scattering of people with common roots) are celebrated across London and beyond. Let's take a virtual tour of what we would do and see on a two-week trip to participate in the Black History festivities in London. Fortunately, we will arrive just in time tomor row (17th) to catch the 7 p. m show of the play, Babylon, which will be held at the Mu seum of London Docklands Actor-musician Brinsley Forde will portray the life of a young Black man named Blue on the streets of South London in 1980. We will then attend a lec ture/discussion being held at the Dalston CLR James Li brary in London on Thursday (18th). Billed as "Finding The Spotlight: Supporting The Next Generation of Black Fe male Leaders," the event will engage us in a discussion with and about Black female lead ers who aren't very visible, yet, exist and are making a difference in the U. K. boardrooms, educational institutions, the arts, sciences, and other pro fessions. Issues of whether young Black women believe they can be leaders, finding out who are their role-models, the obstacles they face, and what Black female leadership looks like in 2012 in the UK will also be topics of discus sion. Our schedule for Friday (19th) and a whirlwind of weekend fun, festivals, and sight-seeing (19th-21t) in cludes what is considered one of the "Top Ten Best Guided Walk Tours of London."' We will take the two-hour St. Paul's/Bank Walk, where we will learn how African names came to be given to streets and areas; how Africans influenced -architecture of buildings ; that Africans were in the UK from Roman times; that Britain op posed the immigration of Africans as early as 1596 when the queen stated that there were too many Africans in Britain; and tour banks and buildings that were built di rectly and indirectly by Africans. We are excited to learn more about Black British sol diers of1776 and 1794, and to Black Spitfire and Bomber pi-Black shares in her autobi ography what it was like grow ing up in a working class white family who adopted her, and her life of escape into the world of music. On Tuesday (23"'), some of us will attend a lecture discus sion at the Peckham Library where Dr. Miranda Kauf man will lecture on the topic "Africans Musicians and royal Celebrations Renaissance," a review of the contributions to royal celebrations during the 1500's by Africans John Black (African Trumpeteer) who performed at the Tudor royal courts and the More taubronar" drummer to King James IV of Scotland. Next week find out where the rest of us will go and make certain we arrive on time. In deed, our trip will leave us with the understanding that life as a Black person in Lon don and the United Kingdom is a mirror of life for Black people in America, and in deed, around the world.

Lawyers for six of the nine defendants ac cused in an alleged voting fraud scheme in northern Florida asked a judge to dismiss the charges Friday, saying the state is attempting to suppress Black voter turnout by criminalizing technical election law violations The charges stem from a Madison County School Board election two yearS ago that was decided by 28 votes. The defen dants include the winning can didate and the county's top election official. Circuit Judge Julian Collins said he would set an other hearing on the motions to dismiss once the six defendants file formal motions and the state has a chance to reply in writing. Only one defendant had filed before Friday's pretrial hearing "This has the potential to chill and intimidate, and it has," de fense lawyer Robert Cox said afterward. "The Black commu nity in Madison is now afraid to participate in the political process." The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and FBI con ducted a yearlong investigation in the rural county, but no fed eral charges were filed. The de fendants, all Black, were arrested last November. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger declined to com ment on the voter suppression claims, The agency previously has denied defense allegations that defendants and witnesses were threatened or intimidated.

-4 c: c }< Questions Continue To Loom About Riverfront Park 0 way government is supposed n BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter When you talk to residents in the area, the Julian B. Lane (Riverfront) P a rk on North Boulevard and Cypre s s h a s be come less of a public park, and more of a facili ty being used by the University of Tampa and the adjacent Tampa Prepara tory School. Two years ago, the pool at the park was closed and later demolished The City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department said that was done because the pool was in need of repair, and there were no funds. Now when you visit the park, you will see storage areas for boats being utilized by the preparatory school and the university. Parks and Recreation Di rector Greg Bayor, said the city has entered i nto a n agree ment with Tampa Preparatory School for use of the parking lot only. "It appears now the park has become an extension of those campuses and less of a public park, said Councilman Frank Reddick. As a child and teenager, Councilman Reddick fre quented the park for pickup basketball games football, and JULIAN B. LANE RIVERFRONT PARK to use the swimming pool. Now, he says it appears it is being converted into an exten sion of the downtown area, and want to put a restaurant and other non-public facilities at the park.

JACOBY JONES BALTIMORE -Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens has tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kick off return. Jones' return came in the third quarter of Baltimore 's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He took the kick in the middle of the e nd zone, veered to his right around the 10-yard line, broke an arm tackle by Andre Holmes and outdistanced kicker Dan Bailey down the right sideline. The return tied the mark set by Ellis Hobbs of New England against the New York Jets in 2007 and matched in 2011 by Randall Cobb of Green Bay against New Orleans. The Ravens' record for a kickoff return was 103 yards by David Reed against Houston in 2010 RG3' 16-Yard Run Leads Redskins Over Vikings 38-26 ROBERT GRIFFIN ill LANDOVER Md One w e ek after his first NFL con cussion Robert Griffin III ran more, ran smarter, ran bigger And won. He left the Minnesota Vikings in his wake, never more so than on his 76-yard touchdown run that put the game away for the Washington Redskins in the fourth quarter His final rushing tally: 13 carries, 138 yard s, two touchdowns. His passing numbers: 17 for 22 for 182 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a 97.2 rating. The scoreboard: Redskins 38, Vikings 26. The soundtrack: Chants of "RG3!" "I told the team," Griffin said, I wasn't going to leave them banging." Griffin was upset that he wasn't there for his teammates after a shot to the head forced him to leave the sevenpoint loss to the Atlanta Falcons a week earlier, and it was fair to wonder whether the hit -and the NFLrequired batte ry of post-con cussion tests that followed would stop RG3 from being RG3. Silva Stops Bonnar AIUFC153 Anderson Silva defeated Stephan Bonnar with a firstround knockout at UFC 153. RIO DE JANEIRO Anderson Silva stopped Stephan Bonnar with a knee to the body with 20 se conds left in the first round Saturday night, winning his 17th consecutive fight in front of his home fa n s at UFC 153. Silva (31-4) showed off his usual dominance while stopping Bonnar (17-8) for the first time in the veteran's career. Silva dared Bonnar to take a shot at him in the early minutes before hurting him with a knee and finishing him with punches on the ground. Silva's easy move up to 205 pounds prompted many fans to wonder if he was preparing for a shot at light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones, although Silva has discounted the notion. LeBron James needs: More weapons. A year ago, LeBron James adopted elements of Hakeem Olajuwon's Dream Shake. This time around, the Miami Heat star forward is implementing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's patented skyhook. And no one in the gym is more ecsta tic to see James continue to add to his low post scoring arsenal than longtime Heat assistant coach and Hall of Farner Bob McAdoo. So when a sweat-soaked James spent nearly 30 min utes alone after a recent prac tice working on his sweeping hook shot, on some l evels it was deja vu for McAdoo.

Goal Reached 01 Registering 10,000 Voters Stacey Auguste, Field Manager for the Florida Consumer Action Network, is proud to announce they have reached their goal of registering 10,000 voters. "We started in June, and our main focus was instructing our canvassers on voter registration fraud," said Ms. Auguste. "We made sure the people who registered were cleared to vote. Ms. Auguste said the process was made difficult, because voter education became a primary tool to convince people that they do matter, and how important it is they vote "There are issues that affeet our communities we need to know about and be a part of. The only way to get things to change is to have a voice. "We had more than 43 canvassers out there, and the hardest thing to over come was what we call the pushbacks (people who just weren't interested in voting). To reach our goal, we doubled our numbers in the last two months, and that was because we spent so much time convincing people that they need to vote. Ms. Auguste said now they will concentrate on making sure people do get out and vote.

Zimmerman Requests Bener Management 01 hldence The attorneys for the man accused of murdering a 17year old last February filed a -motion alleging prosecutors are dragging their feet on turning over evidence. George Zimmerman's attorneys said prosecutors aren' t turning information over in a timely manner and are providing some material in a format that's useless for defense experts to exam i ne. They 're asking for monthly hearings to manage the turnover of evidence from prosecutors to defense lawyers. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin during a DAVID LOPEZ, JENNIFER RIVERA, ALAN WHITE And DANIEL FULLER The Polk County Sheriffs Office was involved in a chase that began in Osceola, and went through two other coun ties. On Thursday at 4 p. m., deputies received a call from the Orange County Sheriffs Office requesting assistance with a pursuit heading west on I-4 coming into Polk County. The car had been reported stolen on September 14th by Megdyl Automotive LLC, who had rented it to Daniel Fuller, 24. Fuller was ar rested on October 5th, but the car was not recovered When an Orange County deputy spotted the car Thurs day, he followed it to a home confrontation in a Central Florida gated community. Zimmerman's attorneys also asked prosecutors for cell phone photos taken by a witness and a police of ficer on the night of the shooting. Zimmerman's latest fil ings have come less than a week after his attorneys asked prosecutors for an y evidence that might suggest Martin's civil rights w e r e violated by Zimmerman. Martin's parents and supporters claim the unarmed teenager was targeted because he was Black and that Zimmerman started the confrontati on that led to the shooting. and reported seeing two men inside, an Mrican American driver, and a white man in the rear seat. He ordered the driver to get onto the ground but he took off.

Deputies said the car exited I-4, and when it entered an Auburndale subdivision, two passengers got out and ran into the woods. Deputies caught up with them, and David Lopez, 30, and Jennifer Rivera, 18, were arrested on charges of grand theft and resisting ar rest. The fleeing vehicle got back onto I -4 and the pursuit ended when the driver, Alan White, 42, ran into a hotel. Deputies later found him hiding in a hotel room. White was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle on law enforce ment During the chase, it was re ported that White tried to hit two marked patrol units
