Residents plea for the board to
reconsider cutting routes
By Sandra J. Charite

Miami-Dade Board of Commissioners, Mayor Carlos Alvarez, and
County Manager George Burgess convened a public meeting on last
Thursday at the Stephen P. Clark Center (Government Building) at 111
Northwest 1 Street.
Residents throughout the county pleaded before the board to reconsider
cutting routes, that could affect their only means of transportation. In
cutting routes, transit jobs are at risk of being eliminated--soon.
"We will be laying off a lot of folk during Christmas time," said
Commissioner Dorrin Rolle to Burgess, after Transit Director Harpal S.
Kapoor informed the board that they would start notifying the transit
employees and the general public about the elimination of routes and
layoffs following the Transit meeting in October. The number of jobs

Small price could save transit bus routes


A. quarter used to buy a cup
of coffee. No more. Twenty-five
cents is not enough to cover the
rising costs of purchasing and
maintaining our county's transit
system. But, that's how much,
25 cents, that Miami-Dade has
raised fares in the past eighteen
years. Escalating costs for fuel,
equipment, electricity and labor
has far surpassed our transit
income.
We must begin to bring our
transit fares into the twenty-
first century. In order to help
prevent the imminent loss of
high use bus routes and tran-
sit worker layoffs, the Board of
County Commissioners wisely
approved a $.50 fare increase
last week. That increase is now
being reconsidered along with
dramatic cuts in transit service
that would have been avoided.
Clearly, the elimination of
sixteen popular bus routes and
as many as 700 Transit jobs is
not an effective response to the


current downturn in our econ-
omy. Our people need to get
to work, school, shopping and
to their other appointments in
a timely way. Layoffs of tran-
sit workers, including drivers,
mechanics, la borers as well as
professionals, will add dramati-
cally to the growing numbers of
unemployed in our community.


at all to use the bus or trains.
Of the remaining seven riders
who do pay, four of them (42%
of the total) pay only half price
fares or enjoy a substantial dis-
count.
Only twenty-five percent, few-
er than three out of ten, tran-
sit riders, currently pay the full
fare.


O n September 16, 2008, the Board of County Commis-
sioners will vote again and decide whether to rescind
the earlier decision to raise transit fares by 50 cents.


Hard choices must be made and
must be made now.
Raising fares is a crucial step
toward returning solvency to
our under funded transit sys-
tem. Consider the following:
Miami-Dade Transit fares
have increased by only 25 cents
since 1990.
Thirty-three percent, or a little
more than three out of every ten
Miami-Dade riders, pay no fare


Many free or reduced fare
programs, such as the Golden
Passport, student and disabled
discounts, are awarded without
regard for the rider's financial
ability to pay.
If our transit system were not
under funded, or if our econo-
my allowed Miami-Dade tax-
payers to grant generous public
benefits to everyone no matter
what their income, I would be


the first to fight Mw
against any in-
crease in transit fares. Unfor-
tunately, this is not our situa-
tion.
I am fully aware that the rate
increases will be a substantial
burden for many of our resi-
dents. But, I have heard from
many of those who will be most
impacted by the cuts. Transit
riders are telling me that they
are willing to pay a higher fare
to ensure the continuation of
the transit service they depend
on. Without the 50 cent fare
increase at least 16 routes will
be eliminated based on the fol-
lowing criteria: number of over-
all passengers on the route; al-
ternative transit services that
are available; and number of
persons predicted to have no al-
ternative public transit. All of
these rates have substantial
ridership, but are considered
on the "second tier" based on

The city is still playing games with the long-promised
affordable units in Overtown. Commissioners Joe
Sanchez and Marc Sarnoff are both "uncomfortable"
with the $1.2 million subsidy the CRA board has given
to Dev-Con Developers to build 40 units at 229-247
NW 12th St. Stay tuned.

Some people are wondering what the real deal is on
the city refusing to turn over the property at 831 NW
2nd Ave. to the Black Archives to build a public plaza
south of the Lyric Theatre. More problems with the
Community Development Agency board? Stay tuned.

It looks like the voters in Broward County are not
as multicultural about their judicial system as we are
in Miami-Dade. Incumbent judges whose terms expire
seldom drew opposition, but the three incumbent
Hispanic judges on last week's ballot not only drew
opposition, but all three were defeated.

Look for a surge in South Florida exports of
construction materials and building supplies to the
neighboring islands in the Caribbean as they face the
task of repairing their hurricane damaged areas. Too
bad that Cuba can't benefit because of the embargo
because that country took the brunt of the damages
when they took direct hits from Gustav and Ike.

It looks like those disgruntled Miami-Dade School
Board members have succeeded in getting rid of
possibly the best school superintendent this county
ever had. Rudy Crew is possibly ready to leave this
hostile environment and is no doubt humming the
tune, "If you want to be the boss you got to pay the
cost." In this case, $700, 000 to buy out the final two
years of Rudy's contract.

The Miami-Dade Commissioner had better be careful
about stripping the name of former baseball star Jose
Conseco from a Miami-Dade street. This county is
filled with streets named after one-time popular figures
who have since fallen from grace, and many of their
misdeeds were much worse than using steroids.

The Miami Dolphins lost a close one to the New York
Jets on Sunday, but the 400-member FAMU Marching
Band really put on show during half-time.

North Miami Beach City Councilman Phillippe Derose
and Patrick Julien are getting praise for their efforts
in urging the city to get rid of their surplus items by
sending goods to Haiti and other poor countries.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Commissioners undecided on transit fare increase


TRANSIT
continued from 1A

that will be cut is still unknown
by the transit department.
According to Country Manager
Burgess, in early January the
proposed routes would be
eliminated.
In a June 24 letter to the
Mayor and the Board of County
Commissioners, Burgess
states that the total proposed
budget for the 2008-09 fiscal
year is estimated at $7.408
billion.. High fuel costs and
transportation surtax revenues
are being affected by economic
slowdowns are reasons for
the reduction in Metro-Dade
Transit services, according
to Burgess. He also says that
revenue miles would be cut in
the 2008-09 fiscal year by 14
percent and 28.1 million miles.
Serious decisions will need
to be made regarding public
transportation within the next
year.

DECISIONS AFFECT
EVERYONE
Due to low ridership, in
June, the following routes were
discontinued: 68 Gratigny
Connection, 82, V, 147, 216
Goulds Connection, 241 North
Dade Connection, 242 Doral
Connection, 245 Okeechobee
Connection, and 278 Flagami
Connection.
Tiffany Howard is a student
at Miami Lakes Educational
Center and normally depends
on the bus to get to school.
Unfortunately, the only bus
route. Howard takes is the 29,
which could be terminated.
She worries that she will have
difficulty making it to school.
Jonathan Carlie, an
Overtown resident, relies on a
wheelchair and is unable to get
around town without the bus
service. Carlie says that he
rides the bus everyday to get to
his doctor's appointment and


grocery shopping. Carlie insists
that depending on the day and
time, he sometimes has to wait
up to an hour, sometimes two,
before the buses show up,
especially on the weekends.
Avis Hopkins, an elderly
woman who resides in Little
Haiti, urged the board to not
discontinue route 202 (the Little
Haiti connection). Hopkins,
who is handicapped, says that
the metro bus has been her
only means of transportation
but she understands that
decisions need to be made.
Jeffrey Mitchell, vice
president of the rail mover, says
that if the proposed routes are
cut then there will be limited
service offered to the public
which means that residents
would have to wait longer at
the bus and rail stations.
Commissioner Dennis Moss
believes that transit cannot
continue to move forward
by reducing the amount of
service that they.provide to the
community.
Current routes up for
elimination include: 6, 29, 42,
56, 57, 73, 75, 91, R, 238, 243
Seaport Shuttle, 246 Night Owl
and 267 Ludlam MAX.
Wesell Clarke, president
of Transport Workers Union
of America (TWU), says the
Black community is not the
only one affected. Residents all
over Miami-Dade county will
feel the transportation blues,
especially those who attend
Miami-Dade College, Jackson
Memorial Hospital patients
and workers at the downtown
businesses.
"The routes in the
Black neighborhoods are
disproportionate. People have
no other options. The quality of
life depends on transit. There
are not enough alternatives for
these bus routes that are being
eliminated. We need public
transportation in a sensible
manner so that people can move


Wesell Clarke, president of Transport Workers Union of America (TWU), live on WMBM
1490 at the Stephen R Clark Center, addresses the problems in Miami-Dade Transit.


along in their communities,"
said Clarke.

FUNERAL PROCESSION DEPICTS
TRANSIT STATE
"We are leaving more people
then we are actually carrying. As
far as I can see, transit is dead,"
said Clarke. The demand for bus
service has increased within the
past two to three months, but
there now is a shortage of routes
in necessary areas.
Last month, TWU, which
represents over .3,000 transit
employees, held a mock funeral
to inform .the public about
Miami-Dade County Manager
George Burgess' proposed plan
to slash nearly five million
miles of bus routes and service.
The funeral procession passed
through areas in Miami-Dade
that would be affected by the
cuts. The procession began at
Miami-Dade College's North
Campus and ended at the


Government Building.
According to Commissioner
Barbara Jordan, currently 33
percent of residents are riding
free. 42 percent are paying a
reduced fare and 25 percent are
paying a full fare.
"Transit is in serious trouble.
The decisions that are being
made right now are due to the
current budget. I don't blame
the people for holding a mock
funeral because we need -to
generate additional resources
for transit to be able to survive.
We need to have a much more
comprehensive transit system.
You would not operate a
business in which 75 percent
was free. We need to make sure
that if we are going to do that,
then we will find other vehicles
to support the system," said
Jordan.
Commissioner Dennis Moss
said that fee waivers such as
golden passport, discounts,


and passes for veterans are
contributed factors to why 75
percent of people are riding
free. Furthermore, he says that
these passes cannot continue
to be provided to riders, if there
is no additional revenue being
added to the pot.

BOARD WILL VOTE TO
RECONSIDER FARE
INCREASE
Although the board voted for
a 50-cent fare increase that
would have come into effect
on October 1, Commissioner
Carlos Gimenez, who was
previously in favor of the
increase, announced on
Thursday that he would ask
the board to reconsider the
fare increase at the September
16 meeting.
Last Tuesday's commission
meeting in a 6-5 vote,
Miami-Dade commissioners
approved a fare increase.


Commissioners Katy
Sorenson, Carlos Gimenez,
Rolle, Moss, and Audrey
Edmonson voted -for while
Natacha Seijas, Joe Martinez,
Bruno Barreiro, Javier Souto
and Sally Heyman were
against the fare increase.
"I think that the 50 cent fare
increase voted on Tuesday
saves a lot of jobs. If we
are successful in defeating
the reconsideration, less
folks will be terminated.
The reconsideration will
be a tremendous disaster
for everyone especially
the African-American
community. All districts
will be affected but most of
the bus drivers are African-
American. If we fail in the
reconsideration then our
community will hit harder
than the rest of the county,"
said Commissioner Dorrin
Rolle.
Commissioner Dennis Moss
hopes that the commissioners
stands firm in the increasing
of fares.
He is concerned about the
cutting of jobs due to the lack of
resources. "We need to preserve
jobs for our transit workers.
We made a commitment that
we would add jobs in this
community. If you don't have
additional revenue, then
unfortunately routes and people
will be affected."
Jordan too hoped 'that the
board does not vote against the
fare increase believing that the
lack of revenue will hurt the
public.
The fares should have been
increased a long time ago but
increasing fares when gas has
risen is unfair says Mitchell.
The next Board of County
Commissions will be on September
18. Director Kapoor insists that
after the meeting, there will be
better insight into the budgetary
effect to service levels and
employees.

Why do you think there was a low voter

turnout in the Primary Election?


JAMES THOMAS, 57
Retired, Liberty City
I didn't vote
but I am sure
that if they
were offering
something free
at, the polls
then the voting
booths would
be packed with
people.


KEVIN J. MAZYCK, 30

Liberty City
I don't know
if I am going I
to vote this
year because
there will be
no change.
If there is no
change, there W
is no reason
for me to vote in the primary or
November election.

THOMASINE DUGGINS, 52
Unemployed, Allapatah

Unfortunately, this is the first
time that I didn't vote because
there was very little advertising
about the local candidates.


No one that --
I knew was
educated on
the candidates
running in
each district.
A lot of people
don'tthinkthat
the primary
election is important. We are too
preoccupied to vote.


ARIEL EDWARDS, 26
Teacher, Miami Lakes
Basically, it ... .
seems that the
community is
not focused
on the primary '
e 1 ection. n n
People don't
think that
the 'primary
election will have much of an
impact in their life. A lot of
people are not familiar with
the candidates. It is terrible.
However, there is a large number
of people that will be voting in
the November election.


NATHAN FLEITSHER, 52
Retired, Liberty City

I voted in
the primary
election but
I think that
it lacked
voter turnout
because people
are waiting for
the November

Another thing, people don't hear
about these local candidates
until election time so a lot of
residents are not concerned
about their platform or
agendas. Besides, most of these
candidates have never been
heard of so you are basically
going into the voting booth blind.
You are casting a blind vote.

Holloway refers to the board as a 'laughing stalk'


CREW
continued from 1A

appropriate actions in
terminating Crew's contract.
"This is a tough day. Dr.
Crew has done a good job
and shows the passion for
our children. Whatever the
recommendations 'are, I 'ask
you to-be .fair to D.r.. Crew
because whatever you reap
you will sow," said Danny
McMillian, a local resident.
The meeting was called by
Chair Agustin J. Barrera, a
long-time supporter of Crew,
"The only reason that the
item was brought forward is
because the superintendent
expressed to me that he wants
to leave. I am not in favor of
firing the superintendent."
Former school board
member Evelyn Langlieb
Greer's seat remained empty,
after she lost the election for
District 9 to former principal
Larry Feldman. Feldman sat
in the audience watching the
stillness of the board in the
midst of diversity. He is set
to take his seat on the board
on November 18. Crew was
not present for the meeting
but Deputy Superintendent
Ofelia San Pedro, a possible
successor for Crew, sat-in in
his absence.
Greenberg informed the
board that Crew's contract
could only, be terminated,
for gross insubordination. A
constant refusal to do what
the board instructed him
to do constitutes as a gross
insubordination, according to
Greenberg. He presented the
board with four options:
They could mediate with
Crew, Crew 'could resign
without receiving his


maximum compensation of
$700,000, the board could fire
him with cause, or they could
fire him without cause which
would result in litigation. If
the board wins then Crew
would be paid nothing but if
they lose, $700,000 will be
paid to Crew..
If Crew resigns from' his
position then the board
would not be entitled to pay
him. In order for Crew to
resign, the process requires
him to submit a letter at least
180 days in advance says
Greenberg.
Renier Diaz de la Portilla
badgered San Pedro on
whether district jobs or
teaching positions would
be in danger in order, to pay
Crew. San Pedro assured
Diaz de la Portilla that there
were options to paying Crew
but she did not have the
information in front of her to
discuss it with him.
Diaz de la Portilla, who
has been vocal about his
feelings for Crew in the past,
said "I am taken back by
these proceedings. I object to
how this meeting was called
hastily. We can terminate
without paying him the tax
payers dollars. I recommend
that we meet in an executive
session."
Board members Marta Perez
and Diaz de la Portilla agreed
that they didn't want to give
Crew more money, especially
money that the board did not
have.
"Either we should terminate
him for cause or contact the
Superintendent and work out
some solution," said Perez.
Vice-Chair Perla Tabares
Hantman said to the board
that they needed to decide


whether or not they wanted
Crew as their superintendent.
If they wanted to mediate with
him, then it should be done
"without the politics" but
Crew should not be the main
focus when there is a budget
that needs to be balanced.
With the recent actions of his
constituents, board mefrtber
Dr.. Wilbert Tee" Holloway
referred to the board as being
a "laughing stalk" and a part
of the "biggest soap opera in
town."
"The $284 million budget
is not $284. We have put
this burden of the budget
on one man. There has
been a constant effort to
discredit this leadership and
administration rather than
educate our community. We
need to make changes and
those changes will impact the
children in our community,"
said Holloway. He had& few
questions for Greenberg.
Board member Ana Rivas
Logan, once again, reminded
her colleagues that Crew
dipped into reserves last
year. She urged the board
to reconsider making any
changes until Feldman, the
newest board member, takes
his seat in November.
"With all the newspaper
articles and noise that have
been made, it appears to me
that the amicable resolution
is the best way to go. We
are at the crossroads where
something ought to be done
quickly. I would hope that

Trust counselors say, 'Don't cut our jobs'


Trust program changes teen's life


Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

As the Miami-Dade School
Board tries to balance the bud-
get, trust counselors through-
out Miami-Dade sit on the
edge of their seats hoping that
their jobs will not be next on
the cut list. This budget crisis
has caused the board to elimi-
nate more than 2,000 positions.
More positions will be on the
chopping block as the board
reconvenes for another school
board meeting on Wednesday.
Though the counselors are
not candidates for Wednesday's
slash, they believe if the board
removes their positions it will
be detrimental to the students
in Dade County Public Schools.

WHO ARE THEY?
When you drop off your chil-
dren to school in the morning,
the kids do not just spend time
with their teachers and class-
mates. In addition to the prin-
cipal and staff, cafeteria work-
ers, custodians and security
guards, the trust counselors
are available in the schools to
help coach the children to be-
come better students.
Danielle Taylor, an alumni


DANIELLE TAYLOR
Miami Edison Middle


of Miami Northwestern Senior
High, is a trust counselor at
Edison Middle School. She pro-
vides prevention / intervention
for substance abuse education
based on the needs of the stu-
dents. Taylor says that her job
requires her to act as a liaison
between the parents and chil-
dren. The kids have a tenden-
cy to confide in the counselors
rather than their parents.
Taylor understands that often
counselors are not viewed as ed-
ucators to the students but she
believes that, while in school,
children need more than just
education. They need to acquire
life skills before they graduate
from high school.
A trust counselor assists chil-
dren and youth who are deal-
ing with issues such as: abuse
(physical, substance and emo-
tional), self esteem, gender
identity and anger manage-
ment. They offer grief coun-
seling, partner with agencies/
organizations to help meet the
needs of students, bring aware-
ness to HIV/AIDS, coordinate
activities/programs that en-
courage school safety and orga-
nizes events that support anti-
bullying and nonviolence.
"Things that we discuss with


DELPHINE GERVAIS
Miami Edison Senior High


our students, we don't dis-
cuss with our teachers," said
Tyra Tate, a trust counselor at
Northwestern. This is Tate's
second year as a counselor.
She says that she deals with a
lot of students who need guid-
ance and help in family, aca-
demic achievement, peer pres-
sure, substance abuse, sexual-
ity, teen pregnancy and ways of
managing stress.

TRUST CHANGES LIVES
20 year-old Kervin James, a
graduate of North Miami Se-
nior High School, recalls that
he probably would not be alive
today, if not for his trust coun-
selor. While in high school,
James said that he had a lot of
peer pressure that pushed him
in the, wrong direction. Deep
inside, he knew better but he
did not want to lose his friends.
With so many negative influ-
ences, James remained con-
fused and uncertain on what
path to take.
James says that, while walk-
ing down the hall one after-
noon, he decided to visit his
trust counselor's office. He was
able to talk to her and tell her
everything that has been going
in his life. She told him there
was greatness in him but the
decisions he made today would
affect him throughout his life.


TAKIA BULLOCK
Carol City Middle School


James walked out of the of-
fice destined to change. After
graduating from high school, he
went to the University of Flori-
da where he is studying phar-
macy.
"It's no secret that teenage
years are the most difficult and
the most turbulent for some.
Trust counselors are the rock
that students sometimes need
to let them know they can get
through the difficult times, and
everything will be alright," said
Christy Gamez-Soza, a senior at
Southwest Miami Senior High
School.

LONG-TERM EFFECT
WITHOUT TRUST
"Money aside, just consider
what will happen in the long-
run," said Delphine Gervais,
a first-year trust counselor at
Miami Edison Senior High who
previously worked as a social
worker at Miami Central Senior
High.
Gervais, a 93' alumni of Edi-
son, says that this position did
not exist in her time. She has
come to realize that young peo-
ple are facing the pressures of
life at a very young age. Each
time a child walks into her of-
fice, she never knows what she
is going to encounter. Gervais
believes that if the children do

A MOMENT IN HISTORY...

Two locals experience

the Democratic

National Convention

Frazier has been attending the
convention since 1972
By Sandra J. Charite
scharite @miamitimesonline.com
The internet, hopscotch, Ipod
and the record player are from
different generations that hold
experiences that often cannot
be explained in words. This
year, Barack Obama took the
stage at the Democratic Na-
tional Convention in Denver to -
accept the Democratic nomina-
tion for president. Generations
came together .to share this S
monumental occasion. Miami pioneer activist
"The youth of the civil rights Eufala Frazier, at the
days were just excited over the National Democratic
Civil Rights Movement and Mar- Convention in Denver.
tin Luther King as youth of to-
day are excited over Obama. The
youth of today are standing in
the footsteps of yesterday. The
young of the past were the ones
that were beaten and killed and .i.0
fought for change for the youth
of today. The youth of Civil 7
Rights days are the ones stand-
ing at the door of the 21 Cen-
tury," said Eufaula Frazier.
Cedric McMinn, a government
relations specialist at Becker
and Poliakoff a commercial law
firm, attended the convention for
the first time this year and de- rMa Ba i
scribed his experience as "amaz- Cedric McMinn support-
ing" and "uplifting." He says that ing the Obama campaign.
there were so many young, Black
Democrats taking charge politi-
cally.
83-year-old Frazier, an Overtown resident, never imag-
ined that she would see a Black man running for President
of the United States. The scars of the Civil Rights Move-
ment and the death of Arthur McDuffie at the hands of a
police officer that ignited the riots in 1980 still shatters her
memories.
Frazier has attended Democratic National Convention
since 1972 which was held at the Miami Beach Convention
Center. "It has changed."
Back then, she said the Black Caucus, an organization
that was once a 13 member group now consists of 43 mem-
bers and tackles the legislative issues of Blacks and other
minorities. The Black Caucus was not established at that
time and not organized as it is today. She also recalls that
former State Rep. Gwen Cherry, the first Black woman to
serve as a legislator in the state of Florida, was one of the
few Black people that attended the Convention.

On September 16, 2008, the
Board of County Commission-
ers will vote again and decide
whether to rescind the earlier
decision to raise transit fares
by 50 cents. I encourage you to
contact members of the board
about your priorities.
The need to effectively fund
our transit system is a grow-
ing priority in our community.
Raising fares is not the only
solution that needs to be ad-
"dressed. The Board of County
Commissioners will convene a
Transit Summit'in October to
involve residents with county
leaders to explore and prioritize
strategies for making solvent
Miami-Dade Transit.
Our community must also
take a hard look at our need
for a unified transit system
that allows for better decision
making and use of resources.


The current -structure of the
.People's Transportation Plan,
(PTP) that was adopted by vot-
ers in November 2002, severely
limits our ability to prioritize
transit services based on per-
formance and affordability. The


PTP dictates that certain routes
and services be funded at the
expense of more productive
routes and services. Taxpay-
ers and county leaders need to
thoughtfully consider modifica-
tions to these restrictions.


I encourage all who care
about the future of this com-
munity and about our critical
transit services to join with me
to support a fare increase that
will allow Miami-Dade Transit
to continue important and high


use bus routes and to save
jobs. Join me at the Septem-
ber 16, 2006 County Commis-
sion meeting or contact your
County Commissioner and
urge them to save our transit
system.


Art exhibition features free

film series on slavery history


Each Tuesday evening in
September a free showing of
episodes from the PBS se-
ries 'Slavery and the Making
of America' will be held at the
African Heritage Cultural Arts
Center, 2166 Dr. Martin Luther
King Boulevard (NW 62 Street
at NE 22 Avenue) at 7 p.m. in
the Wendell A. Narcisse The-
ater. The series is in conjunc-
tion with the art and history ex-
hibition, "Speak the Unspeak-
able . .: Florida African World
Artists' Reflections on the Mid-
dle Passage," in the Amadlozi
Gallery adjoining the Theater.
These events are in observance
of the 200th anniversary of the
Abolition of the so-called "slave
trade" and explore the meaning
of that development, then and
now, for the people whose lives
were most directly affected and
altered: the African captives
and their descendants.
The exhibition and film
showings are presented by
the Kuumba Artists Collec-
tive, a grassroots organiza-
tion that regularly showcases
artistic talent and celebrates
the positive contributions of


African World heritage, such
as the strength, wisdom and
skills that the survivors of the
Middle Passage, as the forced
migration across the Atlan-
tic was known, brought to the
Americas and the Caribbean.
These community gatherings
have been proven catalysts for
education, discussion and new
friendships and acquaintances.
The film showings will be fol-
lowed by open dialogue among
audience members, and the
Gallery will be open for viewing
the exhibition.
The Schedule of the-film
showings is as follows:
Tuesday, Sept. 9: Vol. 1. "The
Downward Spiral";
Tuesday, Sept. 16 (Remem-
brance of 45th Anniversary of
Birmingham Church Bombing):
Vol. 2. "Liberty in the Air";
Tuesday, Sept. 23: Vol. 3.
"Seeds of Destruction";
Tuesday, Sept. 30 (Closing
Ceremony): Vol. 4. "The Chal-
lenge of Freedom."

position presents, they will not
be able to function in the class-
room.
By eliminating the position,
Taylor feels the students will
not have access to. the servic-
es provided by the program,
to help with family situations,
socioeconomic problems, and
substance abuse.
Takia Bullock, a counselor
at Carol City Middle School,


thinks that the program is a
safe haven for young people by
taking it away will bring harm-
ful repercussions. The students
she advises daily leads her to
believe that young people need
an open door that they are not
able to have with their parents.
"Having the opportunity to
make a difference in these chil-
dren's lives is invaluable. What
we do is directly linked to aca-
demic success for these chil-
dren. Long-term success can-
not be measured in dollars and
cents," said Tate.

Young Black Democrats are

inspired for change


CONVENTION
continued from 9B
elected into Congress, Con-
gresswoman Barlbara Jordan
of Texas and political acti -
ist C. DeLores Tucker were
her mentors. In 2000, Frazier
was chosen to be a delegate
for the Democratic National
Convention held in Los Ange-
les.
This election is a pivotal time
in history, Frazier worries that
the leadership in Miami is not
taking an active approach an
stimulating young people to
become involved in politics
and, unfortunately, it's n:o+t
that young people don't'want
to be involved but the oppor-
tunity is not available to them.
She says that Kendrick Meek
was the youngest Black elect-


ed official from Miami-Dade
who attended the Democratic
Convention.
McMinn; 30, disagrees with
Frazier saying that the timing
of the primary election and the
conventiofn'iwas a contribut-
ing factor to the lack of Black
elected officials.
"Our elected officials were
taking care of things locally.
.We had a very significant pri-
'mary election," said McMinn.
"It [the convention] was a his-
toric moment. 45 years after
[Dr. King's] speech, the dream
is being realized. It is a tes-
tament to see how we have
come. This is our generation
and we need to look forward.
Barack Obama speaks to us
.and understands the strug-
gles and issues that we face,"
said McMinn.

14B THE MIAMI TIMES, SEPTEMBER 10-16, 20081


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


The Lord will rescue you


I think that mostly everyone
has heard the story of Jonah
and the big fish. Most think that
the big fish was a whale because
it had to be a huge fish to be able
to swallow a grown man, but ac-
tually the Bible does not identify
the kind of sea creature it was.
The Book of Jonah is a short
one, so please take this oppor-
tunity to read it as I share this


column this week.
I find it interesting the reason
that Jonah ran in the opposite
direction when God instructed
him to warn the people of Ni-
neveh that he was going to de-
stroy their nation. Jonah did
not run because of fear of these
vicious people, but because he
did not want to warn them. Jo-
nah knew God. He knew that


God was a God of judgment, but
He was also a God of grace and
mercy. Jonah knew that if these '
people were warned, and they
decided to repent, God would
forgive them, because He is after
all God.
Jonah could only know this
if he was a recipient of God's
forgiveness. He ran away, and
eventually landed in the belly of
a fish. Chapter two is a prayer
to the Lord from Jonah while en-
trapped in the fish. Jonah did
not try to excuse himself for his
disobedience. In fact, he admit-
ted that he knew why he was in
this position. He admitted that
he knew that God was displeased
with him and caused his impris-


onment in the fish. But read
verse 6 of this chapter carefully.
Jonah thanked God for saving
him. Yes, he thanked himl
Do you thank God in the midst
of your crisis? Though Jonah
was in a horrible place, he knew
that it could have been much
worse. He knew that he was still
alive, and there was still an op-
portunity for God to deliver him
from the belly of this fish. Are
you crying because of your situ-
ation? Are you angry and lash-
ing out because you have lost
your job, and in danger of losing
your home? Are you hurt and
humiliated because your spouse
is having an affair? If you are
feeling any of these emotions, or


others, then you are still alive!
You are still in a position to be
rescued. If you can cry out, then
it's not over yet. If you know
that you are responsible for your
situation, then do as Jonah did,
confess your disobedience or
guilt, and ask the Lord to rescue
you.
Jonah not only repented, but
he praised. He said that he
would not be like the heathen
who praised false gods. He knew
the one true God, and it was Him
that he would worship. He ac-
knowledged that his help came
from the Lord, and only the
Lord. Who are you looking to for
rescue? Are you putting your
faith in the bank, your family, or


your job?
I'm going to give you some
time to think on your own situ-
ation this week. Are you in the
depth of your mess? Do you
want out? Repent, praise, de-
clare the Lord as Savior. Perhaps
your situation is not because of
sin or disobedience. There is an
enemy who hates us, and con-
stantly launches attacks against
us. Even if this is the case with
you, still praise God. Praise Him
for allowing this opportunity to
show others who mocked you,
discouraged you, and hurt you
that God is not done with you
yet. Praise God for delivering
you in the presence of your en-
emies.

14B THE MIAMI TIMES, SEPTEMBER 10-16, 20081


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


The Lord will rescue you


I think that mostly everyone
has heard the story of Jonah
and the big fish. Most think that
the big fish was a whale because
it had to be a huge fish to be able
to swallow a grown man, but ac-
tually the Bible does not identify
the kind of sea creature it was.
The Book of Jonah is a short
one, so please take this oppor-
tunity to read it as I share this


column this week.
I find it interesting the reason
that Jonah ran in the opposite
direction when God instructed
him to warn the people of Ni-
neveh that he was going to de-
stroy their nation. Jonah did
not run because of fear of these
vicious people, but because he
did not want to warn them. Jo-
nah knew God. He knew that


God was a God of judgment, but
He was also a God of grace and
mercy. Jonah knew that if these '
people were warned, and they
decided to repent, God would
forgive them, because He is after
all God.
Jonah could only know this
if he was a recipient of God's
forgiveness. He ran away, and
eventually landed in the belly of
a fish. Chapter two is a prayer
to the Lord from Jonah while en-
trapped in the fish. Jonah did
not try to excuse himself for his
disobedience. In fact, he admit-
ted that he knew why he was in
this position. He admitted that
he knew that God was displeased
with him and caused his impris-


onment in the fish. But read
verse 6 of this chapter carefully.
Jonah thanked God for saving
him. Yes, he thanked himl
Do you thank God in the midst
of your crisis? Though Jonah
was in a horrible place, he knew
that it could have been much
worse. He knew that he was still
alive, and there was still an op-
portunity for God to deliver him
from the belly of this fish. Are
you crying because of your situ-
ation? Are you angry and lash-
ing out because you have lost
your job, and in danger of losing
your home? Are you hurt and
humiliated because your spouse
is having an affair? If you are
feeling any of these emotions, or


others, then you are still alive!
You are still in a position to be
rescued. If you can cry out, then
it's not over yet. If you know
that you are responsible for your
situation, then do as Jonah did,
confess your disobedience or
guilt, and ask the Lord to rescue
you.
Jonah not only repented, but
he praised. He said that he
would not be like the heathen
who praised false gods. He knew
the one true God, and it was Him
that he would worship. He ac-
knowledged that his help came
from the Lord, and only the
Lord. Who are you looking to for
rescue? Are you putting your
faith in the bank, your family, or


your job?
I'm going to give you some
time to think on your own situ-
ation this week. Are you in the
depth of your mess? Do you
want out? Repent, praise, de-
clare the Lord as Savior. Perhaps
your situation is not because of
sin or disobedience. There is an
enemy who hates us, and con-
stantly launches attacks against
us. Even if this is the case with
you, still praise God. Praise Him
for allowing this opportunity to
show others who mocked you,
discouraged you, and hurt you
that God is not done with you
yet. Praise God for delivering
you in the presence of your en-
emies.

Researchers find
new way to spot
breast cancer

PROMISE
continued from 13B
Myers Squibb, which makes the
imaging agent used in the study,
paid for the work.
The next test will be to see how
MBI stacks up against MRI. The
federal government is paying for
a new study Mayo is leading that
compares the two in 120 high-risk
women with dense breasts.
MRI is often used now for wom-
en with dense breasts, but it gives
many false alarms that lead to un-
necessary biopsies. Doctors hope
MBI will prove more accurate and
cost less under $500 versus
more than $1,000 for an MRI.

Perhaps you sang a lovely song,
or sent a dish of food.
Perhaps you sent a potted
plant, or a. bouquet to set the
mood.
Perhaps you sent a beautiful
card or donated your car..
Perhaps you sent a, funeral
spray or said a silent prayer.
Perhaps you sat quietly in a
chair; if so, we saw you there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest
words a friend could ever say.
Perhaps you were not there at
all, just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console
our hearts, we thank you so
much whatever the part.

3Eg*


It is a rarity when a celebra-
tion involves a century, a cen-
tennial, or 100 years of exis-
tence. Ebenezer United Meth-
odist Church celebrated 110
years, last Sunday, coupled
with the birthday of Dr. Rev.
Joreatha M. Capers, the pres-
ent pastor. Some of the lead-
ers putting the celebration to-
gether included Aggie Reed,
Minister Pamela Hall-Green,
T. Eilene Martin-Major, Minis-
ter. Joann Brookins, William
Francis, Samuel "Chase"
Williams and the Anniversa-
ry Choir orchestrated by Jill
Bethel and David Smith.
A reflection of 110 years in-
cluded a video presentation of
the past. A pictorial history
showing pictures of the many
auxiliaries and the organizers
of the church. Rev. James Da-
vis, John and Sara Page and
daughter, Janie, Mr. and Mrs.
J. M. Dingle and daughter Le-
nora, and Charlie and Geor-
gia and daughter, Rubie.
In the midst of the celebra-
tion, Bethel, Smith, and
Eilene led the anniversary's
50-voice choir in songs that
stimulated the full church
with spirit, enthusiasm, and
joy, Walk In The Light, We've
Come This Far By Faith, Glad
to Be In The Service, and Lord
You're Good, a crowd pleaser
that had everyone stomping,
clapping, and praising the
Lord.
Ebenezer UMC was first lo-


cated on 9th Street
and 3rd Avenue
and did not be-
come a chartered
member until
April 23, 1968 by
Bishop Reuben
H. Mueller and Bishop Lloyd
C. Wicke and stayed in that
area until June, 1973 when
the church followed "urban re-
newal" and moved to its pres-
ent location, 2001 NW 35th
Street.
During the 110 years of ex-
istence, 22 pastors led the
congregation. Rev. William 0.
Bartley was the pastor for 14
years. And, of course, the pas-
tor with the longest tenure was
Dr. Aaron D. Hall, Sr. He re-
tired in 1988 after serving 30
years. His recognition shown
on the video tape brought
a huge applause from the
membership, Rev. Dr. Capers
topped all applause when her
picture was shown. She is the
first female pastor at Ebenezer
UMC and has just begun her
third year with many more to
come.
Some of the participants on
the program included Maurice
Robinson, Paula Kancey,
Deloris Barr-Fisher, Marsha
Jackman, Vinessa Edwards,
Brenton Lopez, and Minister
David Larchmon, while the
soloists in the choir included
Bethel, Smith, William Clark,
Norman Cox, Karen Ford,
Vashawn Wright, Christian


Pinder, Zabhrya Tillman,
Minister Green, Marquan
Robinson, Alton Jones, Ar-
nold Butler and Richard B.
Strachan, Jr.
Before closing Pastor Capers
announced the special concert
by Bethune-Cookman Univer-
sity, Sunday, September 14,
at 11 a.m. service under the
direction of the multi-talented
Dr. Rebecca W. Steele and 20
members of the chorale from
Dade and Broward counties.
All alumni are asked to bring
your check book, as well as
supporters of the university
so that the chorale's journey
back to Daytona Beach will
be financially rewarding. This
will make Miami a supporting
alumni group.


After reading Alex Haley's
Roots and watching Tyler
Perry's Family Reunion movie
many times, members of the
Benton Family talked about
organizing for several years
since the family was growing
with many young people not'
knowing about its history. So,
last year, the first' effort was
held in Miami and they began
to put the pieces together.
This year, they were better
organized and it was recorded
that the family began in 1898
when Devitt Benson married
Frances Inez Roseburough
and brought forth Smiley,
Emma, Mary, Ruby, and An-
nette- Benton who produced
some outstanding siblings,
Donna Grant who attained a
Ph.D. degree and principalship
in Dade County; Giseile Levi-
son who received a masters'
degree from St. Thomas and


pursued the police academy
for a degree in investigation.
More family members got
into the mix last week with
reference to organizing 2008,
Samantha, Tommie Thomas,
and Ernestine Kennon, old-
est sister, Jai, the 5 year old
in mind. Samantha and Tom-
mie chose Arcola Lakes park
as the venue and provided a
bounce house for the children,
along with games, and each
family member brought its own
covered dish to share with the
150 members that showed up.
However, much credit for the
reunion goes to Mary F. Penn,
historian, for the family who
relinquishes her knowledge to
Tommie and Samantha.
Red t-shirts was the col-
or chosen by the group with
"Family Reunion 2008" stand-
ing out among the group that
dined on a variety of soul foods
including B-B-Q ribs, chicken,
hot dogs, hamburgers, DJ mu-
sic, as Mary Penn called each
member a the family by their
first name and she never had
to think.
Other members of the family
included the family from At-
lanta, GA., Tommie Thomas,
Dwayne, Alec, Toni, Ruby ,
Doug Ford Williams, Robert
Levison, Dominque, Marsel,
Robert, Charlie M. Ellis and
children; Ulysses, Samantha,
Samonia, Inez, Debra, Ellis-
tine, Ralph, Anthony, John-
nie, Rufus, Magic Ouanita,
Francine, Katina, Gloria,
Alexis, and Michael Leonard,
Lizzie's son.
These family members at-
tended Miami Northwestern
or Miami Jackson schools and
New Vision and Antioch MBC


for spiritual uplifting. So if
you are a member of this fam-
ily, please call Penn at 305-
244-2030 to be a part of the
2009 reunion.


Speaking .of family reunions,
Audley Coakley, Larry Hand-
field, John Williams, and
Carol Weatherington are en-
couraging the alumni family of
Bethune-Cookman University
to take over the Omega Activity
Center, Friday, September 19,
beginning at 7 p.m. for an eve-
ning of camaraderie, as well as
discussing pertinent plans for
the university.
In addition, there would be
live entertainment, food and
assorted drinks for the alumni.
An opportunity for the classes
of the 50's, 60's, 70's,80's,
90's and 2000's to spend some
quality time together, while
Coakley and Handfield bring
an update from the university
and important news about its
progress and changes. Re-
member, your attendance is
vitally important for this ac-
tivity. Call 305-620-7312 for
more information.


As the football season 'gets
into high gear and our fa-
vorite Miami Northwestern,
Booker T. Washington, FAMU
and BCU and others pave the
way toward victories, Caleb
Crosby, a local fan of the Mi-
ami Times, will be reporting
the inside news of all schools.
He began by displaying his
emotions when both Booker T.
Washington and Northwestern
lost a pre-season game,, last
weekend at Traz Powell Sta-


dium, to Chandler Hamilton
and Long Beach Poly, CA. It
was the first loss by the Bulls
in 30 consecutive games.
According to Coach Billy
Rolle, the season will get bet-
ter with his young squad and
quarterback Teddy Bridge-
water will become more ag-
gressive when 'he connects
with Michael Harris, as Ja-
cory Harris did with Tommy
Streeter. Help will be com-
ing also from Tyres Jones and
Devin Willis.
Meanwhile, remember those
losses will not count against
both teams. Just bragging
rights for the winners, espe-
cially when .BTW and MNSH
are the leading teams in the
nation.
For the year of 2008, Chris
Kelly is JV head coach, fol-
lowed by Rodney Harris and
Sam Spense, defensive coach-
es and Rolle, head coach, and
Earl Allick, AD .
Annie H. Ross, Neighbor-
hood Crime Watch leader, is a
fan of Northwestern, because
her grandson, Greg Ross is
a quarterback for Mainland
High School, Daytona Beach.
Following the game last week
featuring Northwestern, she
tuned in on the sports chan-
nel and watched Ross quar-
terback to MVP on ESPN in
Atlanta, GA.
Here is Northwestern
football schedule submitted
by Crosby: 9-12, Homestead
Sr., Harris Field, 9-19, BTW,
Traz Stadium, 10-2, Miami
Southridge, 10-17, HML,. 10-
25, American, 10-31, Miami
Central, 11-14, Jackson, 11-
20, playoff, and 12-12, State
Championship, Orlando.


Hats off to our service men.
Among the soldiers serv-
ing overseas, 134 gave a to-
tal of $60,642 to Democratic
presidential nominee Barack
Obama while 26 gave a total of
$10,665 to Republican presi-
dential nominee John McCain.
859 members of the military
donated a total of $335,536 to
Obama. McCain received a to-
tal of $280,513 from 558 mili-
tary donors. Happy Days are
on the way!
Saint Agnes Episcopal
Church invites you on Sun-
day, October 12 at 4 p.m. to

American Association of Re-
tired People (AARP) met in our
nation's capital for their 50th
convention. Many Miamians,
who are members of the orga-
nization, joined their friends
for the convention from Sep-
tember 2-8. Lillie Williams,
president of AARP, says the
theme this year is "Life at Fif-
ty."
Forgot to mention olympi-
ans Serena and Venus Wil-
liams were in Beijing, China.

LEGAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING EXPRESSIONS OF
INTEREST-FOUR DEVELOPMENT SITES AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
PROJECT NO. EOI-01-08
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY
MIAMI, FLORIDA
The Miami-Dade Aviation Department is announcing the availability of the above referenced Expressions of Interest document (E01),
which can be obtained by visiting our Website at:
www.miami-airport.com/htmilbusiness opportunities.html (in order to view the full EOI document, please select "Advertisements"
link at the bottom of the Business Opportunities page and then select the respective project).
INVESTMENT SITES: Miami-Dade County's Aviation Department (MDAD) is soliciting responses to the Expressions of Interest (E01)
from developers/investors for the development of four investment sites at Miami International Airport (MIA).
The four investment sites are located in areas adjacent to MIA's Central Boulevard which is the main public entranceway to the Terminal
Building. These investment sites are:
1) Area "A," commonly known as "Central Base," is a 25 +/- acre site. If an investor/developer chooses, the site may be
subdivided into an 8+/- acre parcel that currently consists of a surface parking area; if this option is chosen, the
investor/developer will not have any future development rights to the remaining 17 acres. MDAD is not mandating what
type of development should go on this site; however, preliminary feedback from interested parties indicates that a
conference center hotel may be ideal for this site. Also, MDAD will not consider any proposals regarding fixed-based
operations (FBO) for this site.
2) Area "B" is an 8 +/- acre site adjacent to NW 20 Street and is designated for the development of a new retail service plaza.
3) Area "C" is the designated new hotel site and is comprised of a 3 +/- acre area that straddles the access lanes to the
parking garages (the "New Hotel Site").
4) Area "D" is the existing in-terminal hotel located at Concourse "E". The hotel has undergone several renovations; however,
extensive renovations are still required including meeting Miami-Dade County Building codes compliance. Currently, Area
D is the existing 252-room, in-terminal MIA Hotel site that may also include three floors of adjoining office space currently
occupied by MDAD.
All other applicable rules, procedures, regulations applicable to privately-funded projects on airport properties will apply. See Exhibit D
of the EOI document for the applicable lobbying rules.
