But to Caldwell, 55, his life and ca-
reer have always been about keeping
to what he believes. And in his first
meeting with the team last March, he
assured players he would avoid un-
necessary wear and tear to keep them
primed for a championship run.
When asked about the difficulty of
succeeding popular Tony Dungy, he
says, "All I had to do is sort of make
certain that I was keeping my prom-
ise. I wanted to keep them hungry,

Dunn begins unity talks


Months of having a vacant District 5 seat
and after a seven hour debate, the City of
Miami Commission selected Rev. Richard
P. Dunn II to replace former Commissioner
Michelle Spence-Jones.
The first commission vote split 2-2 be-
tween Dunn and another candidate, Pierre
Rutledge. Another vote split 2-2 then com-
missioners debated more and voted 4-0 for
Dunn.
Commissioner Dunn came in second place
in the city's special election held for District
5 last month.
In replacing Spence-Jones, Commissioner
Dufm agreed publicly to take the seat, tem-
porarily and not rerun in November.
A decision that upset many residents in
District 5.
"Why would he agree to that," said Mel-

"We're going to be there for
the Haitian people and be very
sensitive to their needs and
do the best job we can to help
them," Clinton told me last
week, shortly after she and
representatives of 13 other na-
tions concluded talks here on a
framework for long-term aid to


that impover-

To help Haiti
recover, the
U.S. has to help
it rebuild Port-

magnitude earthquake. The
U.S. also has to help rebuild
the country's shattered econ-
omy. "In 30 seconds Haiti lost
60 percent of its GDP," Haitian
Prime Minister Jean-Max Bel-
lerive said during the day-long
meeting. It's estimated it will
take at least 10 years and $3
billion to rebuild Haiti and


probably a lot more time and
money to help shed its identity
as the American hemisphere's
poorest country.
Long before the Jan. 12 earth-
quake, Clinton had Haiti on her
mind. Soon.after her marriage
to Bill Clinton in 1975, the
couple honeymooned in Haiti.
The Clintons made several re-


turn trips, each time growing
fonder of the island nation.
Within days of taking the
State Department job, Clinton
got President Obama's approv-
al to make Haiti a focus of her
diplomatic efforts. "They had
suffered. They had really been
knocked flat," she said of the

Lierty City:It's time t move forward


Dear Editor, .
I am responding to the Oped
piece from the Jan. 27 issue
called, "The plight of Liberty
City."
If the following statements,
"MLK Parade an embarrass-
ment, another teen killed, no
leads in past drive by shoot-
ings, a city raped by greed
and lacks a sense of real re-
sponsibility and, accountabil-
ity" defined Hialeah, Miami
Beach or Miami Gardens that
man striving to better life for
himself, and family would
encounter the same barri-
ers. However, citizens of those
communities would not allow
their freedom to be all God


intended without their voices
heard.
A new decade and the same
things are being said about
Liberty City. We can't allow the
same things to be said about
our community. Stop regurgi-
tating the failed past and hun-
ger a fulfilling today. Liberty
City's plight will change when
the ignored voices of decent,
hard working tax paying and
religious masking are heard.
Brothers and sisters, faith
turns into personal involve-
ment in all areas of life. Our
view of ourselves must change
before our plight does.

The latest episode took the life
of 15-year-old Sabrina O'Neil.
Sabrina, an eighth-grader at
Brownsville Middle School,
was playing in the courtyard of
her apartment building when
a gray Nissan Maxima or Al
tima drove by spraying a hail
of bullets. She was killed and
at least three others were in-
jured in the drive-by shooting
outside an apartment complex
in the 2100 block of Northwest
52nd Street on Jan. 24.
The Liberty City community
gathered to hold a candlelight
sv]gil for Sabrina on Jan. 25 but
for community activist Renita
Holmes the images baffles her.

she said. "The lifestyle \ve live
inside our homes is a sign of
the community outside our-

ment symbolize the commu-
nity in which we wish to live."


COUNTY CRIME STATISTICS
Two days after Sabrina's
death, Miami-Dade County
Mayor Carlos Alvarez, un-
veiled the 2009 year-end
crime statistics for unincorpo-
rated Miami-Dade County at
the County' Police Department
Headquarters.
Alvarez reported that crime
was down in Miami-Dade
County which was not pleas-
ing news for Brown.
"The crime statistics that
were reported for Unincor-
porated Miami-Dade Coun-
ty misrepresents the reality
in which we live," she said.
"However, one thing I learned
about statistics you can con-
trol what information comes
out based on the data and in-
formation you put in. There-
fore, if you want to show a low
number of declining criminal
activities in Miami, you must

Eight-two homicides were
reported in 2009 in unincor-
porated Miami-Dade County,
according to year-end report.
Brown says she has witnessed
too many lives cut short in the
community.

four tropical storms and hur-

2008. Those natural disasters
took about 800 lives and in-
flicted $1 billion in damage.
So Clinton had been working
closely with Haitian President
Rene Preval for a year before

collapsed buildings atop the
damage done by storms and
decades of political upheaval
and mismanagement.
In a news conference at the
close of the Montreal meeting,
Clinton said the U.S. and oth
er countries that were rushing
emergency aid to Haiti would
be more deliberate in detgr-
mining a long-term fix to the
nation's problems.
"So we're trying to do this
in the correct order. We actri-
ally think it's a novel ideaTo
. do the needs assessment first,
and then the planning, and
then the pledging (of financial
aid)," Clinton said.


That makes sense. Haiti may
never get another chance like
this to remake itself. People
around the world have been
traumatized by awful scenes
of suffering and desperation
-- and, for now at least, they
are queuing up to offer help.
But Clinton knows this re-
building job if not Haiti's
ver.y survival depends on

financial commitment to a
country that seems to have
been on life support for gener-
ations. She understands that
nothing short of a generation
of sustained support will re-
suscitate Haiti. Clinton wants
people to be able to look back
at this difficult rebuilding
work and say of this effort
that "they took their time" and
"did it right." That's the mara-
thoner in her. **
But you have to wonder
whether even she has enough
endurance to give Haiti the at-
tention it needs for as long
as it needs it to make it a
viable state.

Thursday, Jan. 28. "Ifeel like
he is selling himself short."
Williams and hundreds of
residents assembled at the
meeting to not only discuss
Commissioner Dunn's de-
cision but to also address
some of the issues plaguing
District 5 that include crime,
jobs, African Square Park
and ex-felons.
"We have been disrespect
ed because we have no rep-
resentation," said Hattie Wil-
lis referring to the City Com-
mission while District 5 seat
was vacant.
"Reverend Dunn, we have
three priorities and they are
jobs, jobs, jobs," said one
resident.


Commissioner Dunn as-
sured District 5 residents
that he would do his best as
their District 5 representa-
tive whether he stays for a
month or until November.
"I'm not trying to make a
career out of being a public
official," said Commissioner
Dunn and informed resi-
dents that he would not re-
run for District 5. "I vowed to
do my best as your Commis-
sioner."
Commissioner Dunn is
no stranger to politics. He
served as an interim Com-
missioner for two months in
1996, when suspended Com-
missioner Miller J. Dawkins
was facing felony charges.
Fourteen years later, Com-
missioner Dunn finds him-
selfin the same position.
Surrounded with his con-


stituents including County
Commissioner Audrey Ed-
monson, he insists he will
not hold on to the District 5
seat permanently.
"Former Commissioner Mi-
chelle Spence-Jones could
be re-instated back to her
seat, or back to the seat in
District 5. If so, so be it,"
said Dunn.
Spence-Jones was charged
with one count of second-de-
gree grand theft in November
2009. Gov. Crist immediately
suspendedSpence-Jonesand
called for a special election
to determine a replacement.
Spence-Jones reran and
had another victory which
called.Gov. Crist to suspend
17er again. The suspensions
called Spence-Jones to take
her fight against the gover-
nor decision to court so she


could reclaim her seat. Her
trial to regain her seat is set
to begin Feb. 12.
Spence-Jones could not be

+ Had a low rate of side effects
In 4% of patients taking ISENTRESS plus Truvada versus 3% taking Sustiva plus 771/vada, the most commonly reported side effect
of moderate to severe intensity (that interfered with or kept patients from performing daily activities) was trouble sleeping
+ Experienced less effect on LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol)
-Cholesterol increased an average of 6 mg/dL with ISENTRESS plus Truvada versus 16 mg/dL with Sustiva plus Truvada

Ask your doctor about ISENTRESS.
Isentress.com

to the mayor for this voluntary effort, as he and
the others collected approximately three tons of

Mayor Kelley noted that this process was an
overall "win-win" situation for everyone, by way
of the impact it has had on the beautification of
the neighborhood, the image and character reflec-

the positive visual exposure and experience which

Keep your spiritual hfe healthy


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Luther Vandross did indeed
write romantic music, and for
me this was the problem. I
am a single woman, and I do
not need to listen to music
that will make my flesh feel
emotions that I cannot act
upon. I do not need to listen
to Luther encouraging me to
hurry home to a bubble bath
and strawberries and cham-
pagne. I would not mind the
kind sentiment, but I do not
haveahusbandsothebubble
bath is not something that I
can share with anyone How-
ever, the flesh likes the idea
of the bubble bath, strawber-
ries (I really do like strawber-
riesl) and champagne (though
I don't care for champagne).
What we see, hear, and take
into our flesh or soul is what


will influence our actions.
What are you 'eating' spiri-
tually? You can probably tell
if you are on a good spiritual
diet by the places that you
enjoy going to, the people that
you enjoy being with, and
the things that you enjoy do-
ing. I once received an email
about an old Indian proverb
that said the spirit that is the
strongest in us is the one that
we feed the most. Feed your-
.self with music that glorifies
God, and sings the Word of
God. Put yourself on a good,
steady diet of a daily devotion
regimen that includes Bible
reading, praise and prayer.
Watch your spirit man grow
and growl But don't be a glut-
ton! Share that good 'food'
with others.


A healthy spiritual diet is
imperative. What we see,
hear, and think will manifest
in what we speak and in our
actions. I remember someone
asking me years ago what was
wrong with listening to secu-
lar music. They told me that
not all secular music is bad,
and I readily agreed. Some
secular music is written about
values that are in agreement
with the Word. I know many
Godly men and women who
love opera and classical mu-
sic. However, unfortunately,
I also know many Godly men .
and women who listen to mu-
sic that is anything but Godly.
They clap their hands, and tap
their feet to songs that idolize
sexual relationships outside
marriage, making themselves


sexy to the opposite sex, and
even promoting violence and
lawlessness. My Pastor, Na-
thaniel Patterson, even spoke
recently on the danger of lis-
tening to music that dishon-
ors God.
My response to the person
who asked me about secular
music was that I do not buy
secular music. I must say
that I enjoy Christmas songs
around the holiday season.
Though I agreed that not all
secular music is bad, I told
my friend that we need to be
Very careful about what we
listen to. My friend used the
late R&B singer Luther Van-
dross as an example of mu-
sic that is nice and romantic,
and not violent or profane. I
answered by telling her that


Have you ever heard the ex-
pression "you are what you
eat"? In most cases, this is
correct, because oftentimes
poor health is a result of a poor
diet. We know that in many
countries where food and wa-
ter are scarce, the health of the
residents of these countries is
poor. Even in this country,
many health ills can be traced
to not eating good, nutritious
food. My doctor admonishes


me too often ,
about mak-
ing more of
a change in
my diet. I am .
trying, but
not quickly
enough for
her or quite
honestly, for my health either
Now, I will say what I say often
- what is true in the natural,
is also true in the spiritual.

ARTHUR BERNARD
SHINHOSTER
01/26/42 12/16/08

God makes no mistakes.
For that He is too wise, but
you would never imagine how
you leaving would impact our
lives.
Sometimes it is too hard to
perform the simplest task.
I look toward heaven and
I have toask, "God, why did
he have to go and leave me
this way?" God answered and
said, when youneed me just
pray."
We miss you, we love you,
but we know God loves you
best.
Ather "Mama", Ellen, Nicole,
Elyssa and the entire Shin-
hoster family.

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J.Jordan speaks to representatives of local community and faith-based organizations at a special
grants workshop at North Dade Regional Library on Jan.27.


Local non-profits learn fiscal



Management and grant writing


Copyrighted Material


Special to the Times
Local community and faith-
based organizations received
valuable advice in better man-
aging their finances and ad-
ministration with help from
County Commissioner Bar-
bara J. Jordan. On Jan. 27,
Commissioner Jordan host-
ed a grant writing workshop
for these groups at the North
Dade Regional Library with the
help of 1VIiami-Dade's Office of
Grants Coordination.


The workshop was organized
in response to a survey Com-
missioner Jordan asked local
community groups to complete
in November 2009.
"I asked community and
faith-based groups to identify
their current challenges and
the general consensus was
that they needed help with fis-
cal and administrative man-
agement, as well as traditional
grant writing strategies," said
Commissioner Jordan. "These
groups are typically able to


reach out to residents and
supplement the programs the
County tries to implement, so
their survival is of utmost im-
portance."
The Office of Grants Coordi-
nation tailored the workshop
to fit the needs of these orga-
nizations, explaining ways to
improve certain functions of
each group and enhance op-
portunities to receive funding
by implementing best prac-
tices. Workshop participants
were also given updated Amer-


ican Reinvestment Recovery
Act (ARRA) information with
possible grant opportunities,
as well as essential grant writ-
ing tips.
"I think the most important
message of the workshop was
networking and collabora-
tion," said Commissioner Jor-
dan. "Non-profits usually can
pull their resources together
by building relationships with
other organizations that can
assist in spreading their pro-
gram and purpose."

The state of .
America's union
is stark. The
economic col-
lapse triggered
by the bursting
of the housing
bubble contin-
ues to take its
toll.
We know the statistics. Nearly
One in five American workers is
unemployed or underemployed.
That means wages are losing
ground. One in three homes
with a mortgage is under wa-
ter. Millions of Americans are


headed to losing their homes.
That will leave families adrift,
children displaced.
The desperate effort to keep
the financial system from fail-
ing has succeeded. It has saved
the big banks -- leaving them
more concentrated than ever
-- but not succeeded in remov-
ing the clot in financing. Small
businesses can't get loans; hom--
eowners can't get mortgages ad-
justed. Finance is like the blood
of the economy. When there is
a clot, the economy can't work
and people suffer,
Republicans argue that the
presidents recovery plan has
failed. Then they prescribe the


Spending On infrastructure
helped put some to work. Invest-
ment in new energy created new
jobs. Aid to the unemployed --
extending unemployment bene-
fits, subsidizing health care CO-
BRA payments, and providing


same poison that created the
breakdown in the first place.
They want more top-end tax
cuts, more breaks for business,
more deregulation. We tried tax
cuts under Bush; it leads no-
where.


economist will tell you -- is that it
wasn't big enotigh. 'the collapse
was far deeper than the presi-
dent's economists predicted.
We need another big jobs pro-
gram. Aid should go to states
and localities that now face bru-
tal cuts that will lay off teachers,
police and, professors. Public
jobs programs -- a green corps,
an urban corps -- should target
hard-hit areas like the Midwest
and urban centers. We should
invest in infrastructure by re-
pairing schools, weatherizing
public buildings and creating
the projects that will hire con-
struction workers.
Without these commitments,


there will be no recovery. Busi-
nesses won't expand into an
economy in which one in five
people are unemployed. Exports
won't increase -- particularly
with the Chinese continuing to
manipulate their currency. Con-
sumers have taken a $10 trillion .
hit on assets, and are tightening
their belts. States and localities
are facing brutal cuts.
The. pollsters say indepen-
dents are angry about deficits, .
so Washington is talking about
deficit reduction. "If we expect
families to balance their bud-

government do so also?" goes
the mantra.


The reality is that the recovery
plan created or saved millions of
jobs. Aid to states and localities
kept teachers and police from

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


BV Denise Stewart

The percentage of
Black s in America
is growing, and so is
the amount of money
Blacks have available
to spend on goods and
services, according to
a study released this
week.
The "African-Ameri-
cans Revealed" study,
based on a BET sur-
vey of 80,000 Black
consumers over 18
months, showed a 10
percent increase in
America's Black popu-
lation between 2000
and 2008 and 55 per-
cent increase in Black
buying power over the
same period.
According to the
sunrey, Black buy-
ing power is estimated
now at about $913 bil-
lion and is projected to
increase to $1.2 trillion
by 2013.
A similar study re-
leased in November by
the Selig Center at the
University of Georgia
estimated that Black
buying power would
be about $1.1 trillion
by 2014, with current
spending power for
Black s at about $910
billion.
,,,
Re frican-America
that the Black com-
munity should never
be referred to as one
homogeneous popu-
lation," said Matthew
Barnhill, senior vice
president of corporate
research at BET Net-
works. "We hope this
report will help organi-
zations better connect
with an audience and
intimately recognize all
of its
complexities."
Boyce Watkins, a
Syracuse University
business professor,
said he is not sur-
prised by studies that


show growth in Black
spending power.
Until the recession
set in about a year and
a half ago, Blacks in
America had been ex-
periencing an upturn
in wages and earnings,
. Watkins told Black
AmericaWeb.com.
"Unfortunatelywhen
African-Americans
make money, we spend
it. We don't use it to in-
vest or produce," Wat-
kins told Black Ameri-
caweb.com. "When
we get our tax refund,
we go straight to the
store."
Blacks spend a large
part of their dispos-
able income $39 bil-
lion on computers,
cell phones and other

its unemployment rate
jump to 16.4% in De-
cember from 14.8Vo the
previous month,
That's double the 8%
.
it reported in July, even
though the U.S. econo-
my was in worse shape
then.
Ocean City is one ofs
the 19 metro areas that
reported unemployment
rates of at least 15%.
Twelve of those are in
California and three are
in Michigan, the depart-
ment said.
Joblessness topped
10% in 138 metro areas,
up from 125 in November
but below lastyear's peak
of 144 areas in June.
Improvement in the
auto industry, mean-
while, saw unemploy-
ment rates drop in the
metro areas around De-
troit. Automakers and


auto parts companies
have recalled workers in
recent months as they
seek to replenish inven-
tories depleted by the
'
'Cash for Clunkers" pro-
gram, which caused a
jump in car sales in Au-
gust.
The Detroit area saw
unemployment fall to
15.7% from 16.4%, while
the Warren area report-
ed a drop to 14.3% from
14.8%. While still high,
the rates are down about
2 percentage points from
last fall.
Steve Cochrane, a
regional economist at
Moody's Economy.com,
said it isti't clear if the
gains are sustainable
once the auto companies
have rebuilt theid inven-
tories
"There are no guaran-
tees the unemployment


,,
rates won't go up again'
he said.
The U.S. economy
benefited heavily in the
fourth quarter from in-
ventory anges. om-
panies ramped up pro~
auction and reduced
inventories less in the
October to December
period, which accounted
for about two-thirds of
the 5.7% growth in the
economy during that pe-
riod.
Nationwide, the unem-
ployment rate was 10%
in December, unchanged
from the previous month'
asemployersshed85,000
jobs. The Labor Depart-
ment will report January
figures on Friday, and
economists expect a
gain of 5,000 jobs turd
a slight increase in the
unemployment rate to
10.1%.


Unemployment rose
in most U.S. cities and
counties in December,
signaling that companies
remain reluctant to hire
even as the economy re-
covers. .
The unemployment
rate rose in 306 of 372
metro areas, the Labor
Department said Tues-
day. The rate fell in 41
and was unchanged in
25. That's worse than
November, when the rate
fell in 170 areas, rose in
only 154 and was un-
changed in.48.
The metro employment
numbers aren't season-
ally adjusted and can be
volatile. Many of the in-
creases were.due to sea-
sonal factors,

Gilbert Arenas in-
sists he now under-
stands that "guns
and violence are se-
rious problems, not
joking matters." ,
In an op-ed piece
written for The Wash-
ington Post and put on
the newspaper's web-
site Monday, the sus-
pended Washington
Wizards guard pledges
to be a better role mod-
el and says a "message
of nonviolence will be
frontandcenterasItry
to rebuild my relation-
ship with young people
in the D.C. area."
He continues: "I
know that won't hap-
pen overnight, and
that it will happen only
if I show through my
actions that I am truly
sorry and have learned
from my mistakes. If I
do that, then hopefully
youngsters will. learn
from the serious mis-
takes I made with guns
and not make any of
their own."


Wizards coach Flip
Saunders supported
Arenas' decision to ad-
dress the issue this
way.
"If he wants to get
active in his commu-
nity and try to help out
kids, then he probably
needed to say some-
thing. ... He's got to go
with what he feels in
his heart," Saunders
said before his team's
99-88 loss to the Bos-
ton Celtics on Monday
night.
, "In talking to him, I
think he understands
the seriousness of what
he did," Saunders said.
"He's trying to let people
know kids, especial-
ly that he had done
something wrong 'and
try to take what was
really a negative and
try to somehow have a
positive impact."
Arenas pleaded
guilty Jan. 15 to a fel-
ony charge of carrying
a pistol. without a li-
cense. He is scheduled


to be sentenced March
26.
"I am trying hard to
right my wrongs. The
one that will be hard-
est to make right is
the effect my actions
have had on kids who
see NBA players as
role models," Are-
nas says in the op-ed
piece, his first exten-
sive comments since
his season-ending sus-
pension. "Professional
athletes have a duty
to act responsibly and
to understand the in-
fluence we have on all
those kids who look up
to us. I failed to live up
to that responsibility
when I broke the law
and set such a bad ex-
ample." 1
Last week, Arenas
was suspended with-
out pay for the rest
of the season by NBA
commissioner David
Stern for bringing guns
into the Wizards' lock-
er room as part of a
dispute with teammate


"I am trying hard to right my wrongs. The one that will be hardest to make


season-ending suspension,
Javaris Crittenton
(FSY) stemming from a
card game. Crittenton
also brought a gun to
the locker room and
he also was handed a
season-ending sus-
pension by Stern.
Arenas already had
been suspended indef-
initely by Stern earlier
in January; lais total
ban amounts to 50
games.


A three-time All-Star,
Arenas was leading
the Wizards in scor-
ing and assists aver-
ages when he was first
forced to sit out after
making light of things,
including pretending
to "shoot" teammates
with his hands during
an on-court huddle
before a game at Phila-
delphia.
"I definitely think


he's sorry for what
happened. I think he's
disappointed as far
as what took place,
how people are view-
ing him. ... I think now
there's a process you
have to go through
as far as letting peo-
ple know you made a
mistake," Wizards co-
captain Antawn Ja-
mison (FSY) said after
Monday's game.
