enforcement entity to receive resources to Miami's

"Assault weapons are weapons of mass destruc-

who commit crimes with these weapons will be
charged on a federal level. "Too many [young] people
are dying with these assault weapons in our com-
munity," he said.
Torain did not suggest federal charges, but would

Each of City of Miami's District 5 Commission
candidates presented their case to The Miami Times.
Each has a list of priorities best summed up by
David Chiverton. They include; housing, economic
development, making sure that ex-felons are given
opportunities, senior citizens and the youth. There
are strong similarities-but also subtle differences
between the aims and methods of each. The follow-
ing is a summary of each candidate's key positions.
Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones and com
mission hopeful Jeff Torain both identify joblessness
as district 5's most pressing concern. Both identify
the high crime rate as a by-product of joblessness.
Chiverton identifies housing and development as
his top concern. "I want to look at the land available
in District 5 and see if it is usable instead building
all these high rises," he said.
The candidates share a commitment to fighting vi-
01ent crime in District 5, but their approaches have

After careful deliberation, The Mi-
ami Times recommends Tomas
Regalado for Mayor of the City
While his opponent, Joe Sanchez, is
a respected public servant in his own
right, we believe that Regalado is the
best man for the position. *
Tomas Regalado has served as a com-
missioner for the City of Miami since September of 1996. In
that time, he has developed a reputation for standing up to
developers something sorely needed in Miami's halls of
Regalado has taken political heat for prioritizing infrastruc-
ture and services over development, but we share Regalado's
vision of a clean and pleasant Miami. We want a Miami where
the construction of ever taller skyscrapers and condos by out-
side developers and speculators is not as important as the
quality of life of year-round residents.
Perhaps had his hand been at the reigns sooner, the housing
bubble would not have crippled our city's finances so severely.
On a commission highly influenced by developers, Regalado
often found himself as the lone voice of dissent.
It was this same independent streak that drove him to reject
a stadium deal that became a financial liability for the city al-
most as soon as it was inked. The stadium deal was no deal at
all for the Black community. We feel safe in hoping then, that
Tomas Regalado will be a mayor for all the people, Hispanics,
whites, and Blacks.
We further admire Tomas Regalado's staunch opposition of
the two-minute rule; which limits how long an average citizen
may speak before the commission. Regalado is a leader who
wants to hear our concerns. Th suggests to us that he can
be trusted to address them.
For City of Miami Mayor, The Miami nies recommends'

Candidates in Miami's .
District 5 commission race,
one candidate is uniquely qualified to
lead th6 district forward for the next
That candidate is Jeff Torain.
District 5 is ridden with violence. JEFF TORAIN
Jeff Torain seeks to implement a comprehensive public
safety program. As a former Opa-Locka Deputy Police Chief,
we believe he has the experience to do so.
District 5 is rife with poverty.
Train has correctly identified joblessness as District 5's
most pressing issue. Jeff Torain would prefer to see local
businesses grow than outside businesses move in. He would
like to take advantage of interest in Haitian culture by
developing a tourism zone in Little Haiti. Train has noted
that while Miami is a city that thrives on tourism, very little of
that ends up in District 5.
The City of Miami is a financial mess.
As an executive director, Jeff Torain has had to make and
defend budgets before the city of Lauderhill. He even seeks
to add transparency to the process by mandating that the
city budget come before the commission 90 days earlier. This
would allow commissioners and citizens time to view the city's
budget and ask questions before it becomes official.
Jeff Torain has said that he would have voted against the
stadium deal. We at the Miami Times would have done the
Perhaps most importantly, Jeff Torain takes 4 consensus-
building approach to getting these things accomplished.
He understands the importance of convincing four other
commissioners, representing wealthier districts, that aiding
District 5 is in their best interests as well. Train has said that
he would "go irl with a plan" and have the business community
behind him before making his proposals. This is the way city
matters should be conducted.
The Miami Times recommends Jeff Torain for commissioner
of District 5.
. I for one beheve that if you give people a thorough
understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that
produce it, they'll create their own program, and when the people
create a program, you get action . ."

Local veterans protest eviction
By Tariq Osborne

"We're, calling for the immediate resignations of r,

United received a letter from Miltoria R. Fordham,
of the Martin Luther King Economic Development Corporation, denying
their request to lease the office space they occupied.
It is the position of Make a Wish Veterans, Inc. that this reversal was po-
litically motivated by the offices of Spence-Jones and Ha demon, a charge
that both camps deny.

Chief John Timoney. .
The Miami Police annual re-
port shows that Overtown's ho-
micide decreased from 18.60
percent in 2007 to 15.87 per-
cent in 2008. .
But Timoney insists that the
assault weapons are becoming
too easy to obtain off the streets.
"These are weapons of war," he
uttered at the press conference
as Miami becomes domain to
the street violence.
As two families prepare to
bury their children, the search
for the killers) continues but
police have very few leads.
However, Brown doesn't
place the responsibility of these
crimes on the hands of the po-
lice or any elected officials.
"Violence has been in our
community for years and no
one has accepted that this is
our problem. This is our com-
munity so I can't blame Timon-
ey," said Brown. "The ones that
look like us are the ones that
are killing our babies but we
are still pointing the finger."
Brown, who grew up in the
- Brownsville and Liberty City
community, knows first-hand
about losing a child to violence.
Her 24-year-old son, Eviton,
was shot and killed when the
car he was sitting in was rid-
d1ed with bullets in 2006.
In an interview with The Miami
Times ort Friday, she believed
that the community needed to
do a clean up.
"There are some people who
we will not be able to save. They
are lost. Those people we need
to identify and law enforcement
needs to identify. We need to
get them out of the community
before they hurt anyone else,"
Brown believes that with the
lack of jobs for some youth kill-
ing has become a profession
and more opportunities are
needed for the children in the
Miami's urban besides mentor-
ing programs because society
has changed. Family is needed
now more than ever to help
raise today's children.
She insists that we all have
to get back to basis where ev-
eryone "plays their roles" in the
game called life.
"We are playing musical
chairs and everyone seems to
be outside of their roles," said
Brown. "Parents need to be
parents, Commissioners need
to lead the community, teach-
ers need to teach and law en-
forcement need to enforce the
"We are going to see more of
these killings," she said.
What's important now, Brown
says, "We need to protect our
family, fight back and reclaim
to tell. You know, these are our
children and blood."
The Commissioner also raised
the point that Wednesday was
early release for the public
schools and had the students
been walking; there could have
been more casualties.
"When is it gonna stop? How
many more people have to die,
and when are we gonna get
these guns off the streets?" said
Spence-Jones fighting back

Michelle Spence-Jones could

In verse 5, David tells his
readers that the Lord has pre-
pared a banqueting table for
him. And He didn't invite just
any guests but David's en-

to think of those things that are

when we read these things, it is
a reminder to us of what we can
expect from the Lord. We have
expectations of people all of the

CAPRICORN: DEC 21 JAN 20
As things level off you've become
clearer about what you need to do to
cover yourself. Things look simpler now
that you understand where to keep the
emphasis. Let others cover themselves;
you've got work to do. Lucky numbers'
19, 21, 33, 38
AQUARIUS: JAN 21- FEB 20
The last time you were here it looked
a little different.The second time around
you're amazed at how much wiser you
are arid how stupid you were to get
sucked in. Thank God you know better
than to do it again. Lucky numbers 7, 10,
13, 19, 35
PIECES: FEB 21- MARCH 20
Whatever this is,.don't make the mis-
take of thinking that you didn't do the
right thing. The rightness or wrongness
of things is always relative and other
people's values rarely apply to any of
our choices. Lucky numbers 12, 15, 19,

ARIES: MARCH 21 APRIL 20
Too much has come to light for you to
worry about who knows what. It wasn't
your intention to stir up trouble. This is
no time to get weak in the knees. Get
behind the idea that you came here to
change things. Lucky numbers 8, 12, 15,
TAURUS: APRIL 21 MAY 20
No one expects you to do anything but
what you love. It's you who drives your-
self nuts with responsibility. Playing the
martyr has got to be getting old. Can you
picture yourself taking on a new role?
Lucky numbers 10, 13, 16, 21, 30
GEMINI: MAY 21 JUNE 20
What you didn't think would take off
is going over the top. Part of you is car-
ried away, but beware: being prone to
extremes, you'd be wise to ride the fine
line between the thrill of it all, and the.
reality of it. Lucky numbers 15, 19, 25,
CANCER: JUNE 21 JULY 20
Maybe it's time for a reality check.
Whatever isn't working is due to brdak-
down; if you're aware of this, deal with
it sooner rather than later. Nothing will
grow until you stop long enough to nur-
ture it. Lucky numbers 16, 17, 21, 24, 32
Your need to keep the focus on your-
self would be easier to take if your ego
knew its place. Efforts to shine will suc-
ceed, but only to the extent that what
you have to share does as much for oth-
ers as it does for you. Lucky numbers11,

Too many things are about to come
together for you to be getting cold feet.
What's in front of you wouldn't be there
if you couldn't deal with it. Right now that
means telling the truth and taking one
step at a time. Lucky numbers 15, 19, 25,
LIBRA: SEPT 21- OCT 20
How did this get to be all about you?
The give and take factor is always an
issue with you. If your definition of fair
comes down to what's mine is mine and
what's yours is mine, it's time for a re-
view session. Lucky numbers 5, 12, 18,
SCORPIO:0CT 21- NOV 20
Too many ifs, ands, or buts are screw-
ing up your ability to enter into this with
the same level of confidence that was
there a few months ago. Going forward

tation. Lucky numbers 12, 17, 19, 32, 40

ly shot just after midnight on
Saturday morning in Hampton

Saturday morning, dies Ensley, spokeswoman for the
Monday. Hampton Police Department,
said Smalling was wounded in
an accidental shooting just after midnight Saturday morti-
ing in the parking lot of Fusions Nightclub on West
Mercury Boulevard in the city. He was with 21-year-old
Dominique Devon Smith when Smith, according to Ensley,
"mishandled a firearm and accidentally shot" Smalling in
the abdomen. Smelling and Smith knew each other, Ensley
A call was made to the police after the shooting,
Ensley said, and Smalling was picked up by ambulance
in a parking lot off Power Plant Parkway. It's unclear why
they were not in the location where the shooting occurred,
Ensley said. There was a third person in the car wh6 was
the driver at the time of the shooting. .
Smelling was transported to Riverside Regional
Medical Center in Newport News (Va.) where he died
Monday night. His parents, Carl Smalling and Shelley
George had come from Florida and were at the hospital at
Smelling had turned 22 on Friday.
Smith has been charged with reckless handling of a
firearm, a misdemeanor. Smith is being cooperative with
police, Ensley said. Since Smailing did not.survive his
injuries, the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office will deter-
mine whether to pursue additional charges.
"Theo was the model for the term student athlete. He
was a terrific student and an all-star athlete, in addition, he
was actively intolled in a great deal of community service.
I and the Hainpton University family will truly miss him,"
said HU President Dr. William R. Harvey.
"This is a devastating loss for our community," said
HU men's basketball head coach Ed Joyner "He was a
great young man who was an asset to Hampton University
on and off the court. Not only was he the caplain and leader
of our team, but the backbone of our team. He will be with
us in our hearts and minds when we step on the court."
Lonza Hardy Jr., athletic director added, "We are all
deeply saddened to hear of the loss ofTheo, a student ath-
lete we saw grow and mature into an individual who made
us all proud."
Smelling was part of former Hamplan head coach
Kevin Nickelberry's heralded first recruiting class that
included then fellow freshmen forwards Matthew Pilgrim
and Michael Freeman and was rated one of the top 50
classes in the nation. Smelling gained a reputation as a hard
worker, tough defender and rebounder during his time on
the court. He played in 91 games for the Pirates in three
seasons starting in -76 and averaging 3.3 points and 5.2
rebounds for his caree
According to the release, a tribute to Smalling was to

STILL ALIVE?: Elizabeth City State head coach
Waverly Tillar (1) could spoil things for Virginia
isa k oa n t I ans
title with a win Saturday vs. the Panthers in
Richmond. Damon Wilson's Bowie State squad
eams a tie with a win over Virginia State and a
VUU Ioss. The East Division winner would then
be determined by a three-way coin toss.
Going into play this weekend, Albany State
is third in the NCAA's Div. 11 Super Region II,
Morehouse is sixth, Benedict (6-3, 5-3) is sev-
enth and Fort Valley State is tenth.
FVSU hosts Kentucky State (5-4, 3-4) for
homecoming Saturday (1 p.m.). Benedict is at
Prairie View A&M's 16-14 victory at
Southern Thursday puts Henry Frazier's
Panthers (5-1, 4-0) closer to playing for its fi rst
SWAC title in 45 years. With Thursday's win, the
Panthers now have wins over West Division rivals
Southern (4-3, 1-2) and Grambling State (4-3, 2-
1). in the same year for the first time in Frazier's
six-year tenure and lead the West Division by a
half-game over Grambling and Arkansas-Pine
Bluff. The Panthers are off this week.
Golden Lions of Arkansas-Pine Bluff (4-2, 2-1)
who host Southern in a key West Division battle
Saturday (2:30 p.m.).
In the East, Jackson State (2-5, 2-2). Alcorn
State (2-4, 2-2) and Alabama A&M (4-3, 1-2)
are tied atop the division with two losses each
headed into this weekend.
A&M and Alabama State (4-3, 1-3) hook
Up this weekend in the 68th Ala.eir City* Classic in
Birmingham (2:30 p.m.). Alcorn State travels to
Houston for Texas Southern's (2-4, 1-1) home-
coming (2 p.m.). Jackson State is off
MEAC leader and defending champion
South Carolina State (6-1,4-0), coming off a 21-
9 win over Hampton last week, has homecoming
(2-5, 2-3). The Hornets handed Morgan State its
fit t MEAC loss of the season Saturday, 35-22.

N. C. A&T (5-3, 3-2) has its homecoming
in Greensboro, N.C. (1:30 p.m,) vs. Bethune-

2-3) has its homecoming vs. Howard (2-5, 0-4).
Kenny Phillips' Fayetteville State (6-3, 5-
1) squad thrashed St Augustine's 56-6 Saturday
to claim the CIAA West Division title and a spot
in Nov. 7 league championship game in Durham,
After closing out the season Saturday (l:30
p.m.) at Livingstone (0-9. 0-6), Phillips will be
taking his team to the championship game for
the fourth time since the game was reinstituted in
2000. The Broncos claimed championship game
wins unmasatd i ion race, Bowie State (6-
3, 5-1), who could have booked a date opposite
FSU in the title game with a win Saturday over
1'h*gha lUAnt cold not Ht done, suffermg a
VUU (6-3, S-1) is now in the driver's seat and
needs a win Saturday (1 p.m.) over Elizabeth
City State (6-3, 4-2) in Richmond, (Va.) to claim
the division title and a date in Durham.
Here are the scenarios.
If Virginia Union defeats Elizabeth City State
Saturday and Bowie State prevails over Virginia
State, VUU and BSU will have identical 6-1 divi-
sion records but VUU will win the East by virtue
of its head-to-head win over BSU and represent
the East vs. Fayetteville State in next Saturday's
CIAA title game.
Should ECSU defeat VUU and Bowie State
get by Virginia State on the road Saturday in
Ettrick, Pa., Bowie State wins the outright East
Division title by virtue of a better divisional record
If both VUU and BSU lose Saturday, it would
create a three-way tie for the East Division title
between ECSU, BSU and VUU with identical 5-2
Anticipating the possibility of this three-way
tie, the CIAA released its tie-breaking procedures
a week ago and confirmed that the winner would
be determined by a coin toss after the first two
procedures (head-to-head and common division
opponents) still resulted in the three-way tie. The
coin toss would be administered by an indepdn-
dent accounting firm on Sunday, Nov. 1.
In the SIAC, Thskegee (6-2, 6-1) took a big
step towards winning its fourth straight league title
with a big 21-19 victoly Saturday at Albany State
which knocked the Golden Rams (7-1, 6-1) from
the unbeaten-ranks and from atop the conference
Head coach Willie Slater's Golden Tigers
now need wins ovei reams at the bottom of the
league standings, this Saturday at winless Lane
(0-8, 0-7) and next Saturday at home vs. Stillman
(3-4, 2-5) to claim another title.
Div. 11 playoff berth, has tough dates left against
Morehouse (6-2, 5-2) at home Saturday (2 p.m.)
and in Columbus, Ga. vs. Fort Valley State (5-4,
4-3) on Nov. 7 to close out the regular season,
