Edison High in turmoil as students protest


The Miami Edison High
School students were back in
their classrooms on Monday
after a peaceful protest on
Friday led to the arrest of 19
students on disorderly conduct
charges.
Nearly all of the students who
were arrested following Friday's
brawl at Miami Edison Senior
High School will be returning
to school.


At a status hearing for the
teenagers on Monday, Miami-
Dade Circuit Judge Lester
Langer issued nighttime
curfews for all but one of 19
juveniles arrested for their
alleged roles in the incident, the
judge also issued mandatory
school attendance.
Friday's brawl began around
11:30 a.m. in the school
cafeteria, where hundreds of


students, still upset about
the confrontation Thursday
between Javier Perez and
Wadson Sagaille, had gathered
during lunch. it soon became
a melee to which scores of
police responded. In the end,
more than two dozen students
were arrested on charges
including disorderly conduct
and rioting.
All of the persons arrested


on Friday were presented by
attorneys from the Haitian
Lawyers Association headed
by Kertch Conze. All of the
students are being represented
without a fee.
The students all maintained
that they were trying a peaceful
protest to air their grievances,
but they are determined not to
be intimidated into giving up
their rights.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


2A THE MIAMI TIMES, MARCH 5-11, 2008


End the gun carnage
ll politicians make it a point to include "crime" in
their campaign platforms but, beyond that, there
is a deafening silence over what is undoubtedly the
most critical social problem facing the Miami-Dade area -
the stunning number of young Black men who are dying
almost daily from gun violence. It is a crime itself that this
trend is allowed to go without a specific plan to end or at
least minimize it. And it is hard to get past the feeling that
the lack of action is due to the fact that it is Black young
men who are the victims.

There are some indications that the killings are due to
drugs and that apparently has come to mean in the eyes
of the law enforcement authorities that there should be no
high priority in dealing with them in the best possible way
by speedily apprehending the killers and bringing them to
justice. The failure of the police to make arrests is in sharp
contrast to what happens when a tourist is killed. Then, all
the resources of law enforcement are brought to bear and
the suspects are found and arrested in a matter of days.

That same speed should accompany the investigations
into any killing. Swift capture and punishment are strong
deterrents against the use of guns. When the gunmen believe
they can kill with impunity, they do it.

There is also need for a toughening up of our gun control
laws. This has been a sore point because the state legislature,
dominated by pro-gun interests, has been in the habit of
easing, rather than restricting availability of guns. Some of
our county commissioners have fought hard against that
habit but often with little success. They should compile a
list of all the victims of gun violence, together with their
photographs and their life stories and take the material and
the survivors of the victims to Tallahassee to let the legislators
see first-hand what is happening in Miami-Dade.

The upshot is that guns proliferate in the streets of Miami-
Dade neighborhoods and the gun culture has become
ingrained among many people, especially in the young. It is
time to send a message that this is intolerable and everything
possible must be done to bring back some sanity to this
matter and let the gunmen know that their reign of terror
will be brought to an end.






Edison students protest
The following statement was issued on Monday, March 2
by Max Rameau, head of CopWatch, a project of the Center
for Pan-African Development, expressing the feelings of the
group in regards to the disturbance at Miami Edison High
School on Feb. 29.
after successfully propelling themselves onto the
A stage of a public meeting regarding police attacks
on protesters, Miami Edison Senior High School
students are preparing to boycott what they call an "unsafe"
environment at the school. The boycott starts on Monday,
March 3, at 7:30 a.m. at Athalie Range Park, across the,
street from the school on 62nd Street and NW 5th Avenue.
In response to the incidents of Friday, February 29, when
school, city of Miami and Miami-Dade County police brutally
beat, tased and sicked K9 dogs on students protesting
police brutality on campus, the school principal called an
open meeting on Sunday, March 2 at the school. She began
the meeting by announcing that students will be heard
on Monday, at a school assembly, but not at the public
meeting. In addition, the public was not allowed into the
school assembly, a clear attempt to prevent the student's
from publicly relaying the events of the 29th.
Students, however, maintained their protest spirit,
chanting until the Principal agreed to allow students to
speak. While she promised the police would be available
to answer questions, neither Chief Darling of Miami-Dade
Public Schools or any other police officer answered questions
from students, parents or the public.
Student leader Chris Green spoke eloquently about what
he witnessed and the biased media reporting on the story.
Green also laid out the student demands, including the
arrest of assistant principal Perez for assault on a student;
dropping all charges on those arrested Friday; No retaliation
against students; and the institution of Restorative Justice
as a problem solving model, instead of arresting more young
people in the future.

In addition, Green and other students announced the
boycott. Students are asked to arrive on time and in full
uniform for school, but instead of reporting to school,
gathering at the Range Park across the street. Many students
and parents expressed concern that they were to return to
the same school and police force responsible for the violence
on Friday. Organizations supporting the student movement
are organizing workshops and classes at the park. Students
say the boycott will continue until all demands are met and
they feel safe at the school.
Defying charges of apathy and lack of civic involvement, the
youth of Edison saw a wrong and organized to stand up for
their rights. Instead of talking to the students and working
towards a solution, the administration ordered the police
to beat and arrest the mostly Black students. These young


people are on the front line of a new wave of student activist
and need our support and understanding, not beatings and
jail time.

CopWatch is calling on activists to show up at the Athalie
Range Park, with video and still cameras, to support the
students and protect them from other potential attacks by
the school administration and police. Students are gathering
at 7:30 a.m. Monday and will remain throughout the school
day. -Max Rameau

BLACKS MUST CONTROL. THEIR OWN DESTINY

Our political leaders need help

A majority of our City and
County Commissioners
just approved using scarce
tax dollars to build an
unnecessary extravagance -
a baseball stadium for $619
million. At the same time,
because of ethnic bickering
between Black and Hispanic
commissioners and concerns
over our finances, the federal
government is about to pull
away $700 million that would
expand metro-rail. Now, the
Florida Marlins soon to be
known as the Miami Marlins
won two World Series at Pro
Player Stadium.
The seats were fine, the view
was fine and everyone seemed
happy with the parking and
lavish corporate boxes. In
contrast, I think that everyone
would agree that traffic
congestion is getting worse in
Miami-Dade and that we need


woes, our political
leaders need to
deliver on that
deal.. d


MARC SARNOFF IS A
HYPOCRITE
A lot of trite phrases come
to mind, when I think of City
of Miami Commissioner Marc
Sarnoff. "People in glasses
houses should not throw
stones." "yee, without sin lift the
first stone." Ultimately, I guess
my favorite phrase would be
"all the world hates a hypocrite
and a liar." City Commissioner
Marc Sarnoff ran on a platform
of clean government and stated
that he would not be subject to
influence of power brokers.
What we learn is that Peter
Ehrlich, a major fundraiser
and a backer of his campaign,
is hired as a "consultant."


Instead of bickering, our political leadership needs to grow up
and start thinking. Jettison the stupid stadium idea, and then
work together to keep the $700 million


more metro rail lines going
both north and south and east
and west. Instead of bickering,
our political leadership needs
to grow up and start thinking.
Jettison the stupid stadium
idea, and then work together
to keep the $700 million. After
we build the North-South line,
then work together to bring in
more money for an East -West
line. We need both. Use the
$619 million that would go.
to, the stadium as dedicated
funds for metro rail so that the
Federal government is assured
that we have the necessary
funds.
If the Florida Marlins leave
so be it. A baseball team is
not going to' ease our daily
traffic congestion problems. A
baseball team is not going to
make our roadways safer. A
baseball team is not going to
help people without cars use
public transportation to get to
their jobs. We voted for extra
tax to ease transportation


*Peter Ehrlich had been working
on changing the City's zoning
so that warehouses he owns
in Little Haiti would go up in
value. Commissioner Sarnoff
knowing Ehrlich is attempting
to influence the Miami 21
zoning initiative, hires him at
$50 per hour of our tax money,
so that he can now be an
insider and "give advice" that
will benefit his desire to change
zoning to-make his warehouses
more valuable.
Marc Sarnoff dirty deals
don't stop there. He awards
to a non-profit agency where
Yvonne McDonald, a former
senior staffer, serves as the
Executive Director, the sum of
$167,000 through a federal job
training grant. But for federal
guidelines that prevent such
insider dealing, the City would
have funded this project and
the money would have already
been spent.

Nobody seems to be happy about the recent events at
Miami Edison High School and there seems to be enough
blame to cover all parties involved. All of us would like to
see how the deal goes down. Stay tuned.

A lot of our Caribbean friends will miss the tantalizing
tunes and broadcasts from Mijestik Radio, the 24-hour
AM station that has fallen on hard times and has pulled
the plug.

If this country is not in a recession, then why is the
Dania Jai Alai putting its slot machines on hold. We had
been led to believe that all casinos were cash cows. Even
the Gulfstream Racinos is crying the blues.

We didn't know that we had slavery right here in our
backyard. A Haitiar? woman testified about modern-day
slavery in the federal trail of a Miami-Dade County family
accused of forcing her to work without pay for six years.

A clerk in North Miami's Building and Zoning department
has been charged with grand theft in the wake of an audit
that revealed she stole more than $3500 in receipts.
Following discovery of the crime, which spanned a three-
month period, department head Jacqueline Gonzalez has
changed the way Building and Zoning handles transactions
with residents and contractors who pay for permits. The
department issues more than 70 types of permits, ranging
from major building projects to garage sales.

Ft. Lauderdale residents are quite concerned about the
shooting death of a gay teenage boy who was dressed in
women's clothing is being investigated as a possible hate
crime, while detectives try to determine whether he was
targeted because of his sexual orientation.

Don't look now, but that $4 a gallon gas in not a stage
show joke. Oil is up to $100 a barrel with no relief in
sight.

Admirers of Secretary of State Condaleezza Rice
can only feel for her with the almost impossible task of
bringing some sort of peace to the Middle East. For now,
Rice can play an effective mediating role. That's far short
of moving a vibrant peace process along. Even so, it can
help reestablish U.S. credibility and contacts for a time
when the opportunities do line up more favorably, even if
that doesn't happen until the next administration.

People are saying the latest hustle on the Sunday
morning TV venue is a pastor who sells Miracle Manna
that cures everything from cocaine addiction to cancer. Of
course, you have to pay for the manna.

continued from 3A
series of ethical violations by
those close to Commissioner
Sarnoff. Another Sarnoff aide,
Ryan Alexander, built a fence
at Margaret Street Pocket Park
in West Grove for $14,500,
which was permitted because
he stated that he would build
it a no cost. He subsequently
billed the City of Miami for
the construction of the fence.
Thank God, the purchasing
officials were on top of this
one and objected as it violated
all sorts of City regulations.
Commissioner Sarnoff states

If a beloved pastor and
political leader are dragged
through the mud on much
less egregious, alleged ethical
violations, then in the name
of fairness and justice Marc
Sarnoff and his crooked aides
need to get arrested, need to
be investigated and hopefully
indicted. At a minimum, Marc
Sarnoff needs to be given a

many would state that if you
reach this age and your morals
have not been ingrained by
your mama, then there is no
hope. Somebody, please show
Black Miami that the criminal

Kelvin L. Baker, North Miami Beach Deputy City Manager

The City of North Miami Beach's

water plant expansion completed


The recent completion of
the Norwood Water Treatment
Plant Expansion Program
distinguishes the North
Miami Beach Public Services
Department as the first water
utility in Miami-Dade County
to tap into an alternative water
supply, the Floridan Aquifer.
It is also the first utility in
the county to utilize the latest
advances in water treatment-
nanofiltration and reverse
osmosis. These state-of-the-
art water treatment processes,
along with the traditional
lime-softening water treatment
process, allow North Miami
Beach to continue to provide
their customers with the best-
tasting water on tap.
More than 300 dignitaries and
guests attended the December 7,
2007 Norwood Water Treatment
Plant ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The event featured keynote
speakers Eric Buermann,
chairman of the South Florida
Water Management District's
Governing Board, and Irela
Bague, former South Florida
Water Management District
board member.
"The plant expansion
demonstrates our proactive
commitment to the environment
while providing our water
customers with the highest-
quality tap water possible," said
North Miami Beach Deputy
City Manager Kelvin L. Baker.
"This ceremony marks the
completion of the largest capital
campaign in the city's history
and one of the most progressive
water programs in the State


of Florida. "
The expansion program
includes the construction
of a 31,500-square-foot
membrane water treatment
process building, which houses
the reverse osmosis and
nanofiltration membrane units,
and other associated buildings
totaling 56,059 square feet.
The expansion nearly doubles
the plant's current production
capacity, from 16 million gallons
per day to approximately 32
million gallons per day. The new
membrane facility is currently
producing an additional 6
million gallons per day, with
full production capacity of 16
million gallons expected in
March 2008.
The new plant is also designed
as a training facility for water
treatment professionals. A
uniquely designed second-floor
mezzanine affords operators as
well as visitors a bird's-eye view
of both membrane treatment
processes and the traditional
lime-softening water treatment
process.
. "The architectural plan
was developed from feedback
obtained from families in the
neighborhood at the outset of
the construction. With their
input, our buildings have been
architecturally designed to be
neighborhood-friendly," said
Thompson. "Even the exterior of
the campus features a beautiful
linear park with lush tropical
landscaping and meandering
walkways, which give neighbors
a resort-like feel when strolling
by."

12BTH MAM TME, ARH -1, 00 B.AK~Mu ICO IRO EIFR WNDLIN


.. .. .. ..


By ParcaGoe


God is the only way


Do 'you ever feel as though
you are in a rut in the
natural as well as in the
spiritual? There are different
reasons why we may feel that
way. Sin can do that to us.
When we know that we are not
living the way that God has
commanded that we. should
live, guilt and disappointment
in ourselves can cause a


spiritual and emotional
'stagnation.' Disobedience can
also make us feel that we are
in a rut. We know that we are
not where we should be, but
do not want to move to where
we should be going.
However, sin is not always
the reason that we feel that
we are in a rut. In fact, the
exact opposite can be true.


We can love the Lord so much,
and have such a passion
for Him that we are almost
immobile. We don't want to
move in a direction that is
not in the will of the Lord. So
instead of striking out on our
spiritual journey of faith, we
do nothing. We stand still.
We remain at the foot of the
mountain. Being at the foot
of the mountain is not always
a bad thing. We can receive
training and impartation from
our Lord and other Godly
people that He has placed in
our lives. We may also find that
we are placed in others' lives
for a season to be a blessing to
them. All of these wonderful


works can take place at the
foot of the mountain.
But there comes a time to
leave the foot of the mountain,
and strike out. Does this
mean that we need to pack up
and literally move away? Not
always, but sometimes, yes, it
does. Only you and God know
if your move from the foot of
the mountain is a physical
move, or just a spiritual one,
or both. We are reluctant to
leave the foot of the mountain
because the mountain
represents a comfortable
place. There is complacency
there. Things are going well
with the ministry in which God
has placed us. We are prosp


ering in our jobs. But life is
not about being comfortable,
but about being obedient. Is
the Holy Spirit pricking your
spirit to move from the foot of
the mountain?
In Deuteronomy 1:6, God
instructed Moses to explain to
the Israelites that their time
for remaining at Mount Sinai
was over. Mount Sinai was a
memorable place for them to
have resided. The giving of
the Laws occurred at Mount
Sinai. The Israelites heard
the voice of God from Mount
Sinai. They came together as
a nation at Mount Sinai. And
so our Mount Sinai can also be
a memorable and comfortable


place in which we dwell. Our
Mount Sinai has its place
in our lives. We can receive
instructions from the Lord
there. We can make Godly
friendships and establish
Godly ministries at Mount
Sinai. Praise God for Mount
Sinai!
If you are admitting about
now that you know that it
is you that this column is
speaking to, your next question
is probably go where, and do
what, when I get there?! Read
verses 7 and 8 of this same
chapter and see what God told
the Israelites, and next week,
I will write about how those
verses hold true for us today.

We thought our hearts would
never mend and now we are so
grateful for the time God gave

Your mere presence touched
so many lives in so many ways
and you never met a stranger.
You are remembered by so
many who often share their fond
memories of you.

What Back Tink




If you think nobody gives a damn what Black people think,thinkagain.Some
people care a lot. Especially when they need something from you.
Take corporations.They want you to buy their products. And banks care
whether you're going to give them your money. Politicians.They care what you
think when they're looking for your vote.And TV and radio stations hope you
will pay attention to their shows.
The point is, all these people want something from you. And when people
want something from you, you have got power over them.We should learn to
use that power wisely to make the changes we need to make.
Give your money, your votes and your loyalty to people who deserve it.
People who are going to give you something in return. People who are doing
the most for the Black community.
Who cares what Black people think? A lot of people do.
The Miami Times is about the business of communication. Communicating to
you the power you have and letting you know how you can use it. For instance,
right now there are 32 million Black people in this country and last year we
earned more than 400 billion dollars.
