FEATURES City Council Chairperson Over Closing Of Bar BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Long before City Council Chairwoman Gwendolyn Miller was elected to office, a local bar was the source of contention for many East Tampa residents. Since being elected in 1995, she had fought gallantly for the closure of the bar to no avail. earlier this week, it was learned that the owner of the establishment was finally willing to sell it to the city and Councilwoman Miller is elated by the news. "I am extremely elated for the residents and the business owners of the area who are finally going to get some relief. I look forward to some great things being done with GWEN MILLER City Council Chairperson that building. "I was instrumental in bringing the issue before the Abatement Board in 1999. However, the Abatement Board decided to give the owner yet another opportunity to correct the problems at Nurses Group To Hold Event To Raise Breast Cancer DR. JACENTHA BUGGS-MORRISON ... Fea:tured speaker on heart disease The Tampa Black Nurses Association (TBNA) is hoping to inform more AfricanAmericans in the area about breast and colon cancer. The local organization will be hosting their third annual TBNA Black Nurses Celebration. The three-day event will discuss ways to treat and prevent different types of cancers found in men and women. The National Black Nurses Tampa Bay Chapter, the Community Health Advisory Partnership (CHAP), the American Cancer Society and Access Solutions will sponsor the event. Last year, 150 women atteuded the event. "African-American women have the highest mortality rate when it comes to breast cancer. We want to find out why, and what we can do to prevent it,"--said Rosa McKinley-Cam bridge, pr,3sident of the Tampa Black Nurses Association. "Black women seem to be at the most risk once they reach the age of 50, and we need to explore the options to decrease this statistic." -Dr. Jacentha BuggsMorrison is a surgeon in the Tampa Bay area, and a featured physician on BayNews KATHY BROOKINS ... Featured speaker on breast cancer 9 Health Team. She will be the guest speaker during the first day of events on Friday, Feb. 2nd. The topic will be heart disease treatment and prevention. Kathy Brookins, a breast cancer survivor and cancer society volunteer will be the keynote speaker for the sec ond day of events. Gwendolyn Randall will speak on the final day of the event discussing colon cancer. "We look at this event as a celebration because we're able to give information about a very serious issue," said Cambridge. "The more people that attend the event, the more people will be informed, and that's what this is all The TBNA Black Nurses Celebration will be held from Friday, Feb. 2nd to Sunday Feb. 4th at First Baptist Church of College Hill jn the Abe Brown Education Center located at 3838 N. 29th Street from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, please call the Tampa Black Nurses Association at (813) 247-6800.

Two years later, I brought the issue back before Council and each time he managed to avoid being closed down by the city "For years, I have listened to the residents and business owners in that area complain about the bar. And after continued complaints, I requested that the Tampa Police Department appear before Council on January 11th for a status report," said. During the meeting, more than a dozen citizens appeared before Council and expressed their frustration that the bar has been allowed to operating despite numerous complaints ranging from litter to drug sales and violent crimes. Earlier this week, Interim Councilman Frank Reddick confirmed rumors that the owner of the bar, Gene O'Steen, had agreed to sell it. Councilman Reddick, who is completing the term of former District 5 represen-tative Kevin White, said he was expecting to receive a signed contract from O'Steen this week. ,_, CONGRATULATIONS 2007 GRADUATES High school or college graduation is a wonderful accomplishment that deserves recognition.

It was only a football game and it wasn't even the one for all the marbles, but it was a vicrtory that will go down in the annals of history as the most memorable one because it was his first one. When the Indianapolis Colts won the AFC Championship game that propelled them to the Super Bowl, it was just as exciting to me as it would have been if my own beloved Bucs were the ones making the trip, That's because the man leading the way was To.ily Dungy.

But as time went on, fans became complacent with success and an undercurrent of hostility replaced the once warm reception that anointed him upon his arrival.

While he kept his team in the playoffs, people wondered if his conservative style could ever turn a good football. teani into a on. As the criticism grew in volume, Dwigy, always the gentleman, always the professional, always humble, never wavered in his belief. His motto was always, "Stick to the script... stay on course." Unfortunately, the ownership didn't feel the same way and Dungy was sent packing. The next year, Jon Gruden took the Bucs to the Super Bowl and won ... Same team, same players, different . results.

ENTERTAINMENT -Terry McMillan's Gay Ex-Hu.sband To Write Tell-All It's been over a year since author Terry McMillan went on the "Oprah Winfrey Show" to air the pain and bitterness over her ex-husband's revela tion that he is gay -and still there is thick, soupy drama surrounding the former cou ple's ugly divorce. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, McMillans ex-husband Jonathan Plummer has signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster to pen a fictional ized story based on his relationship with McMillan, whose own account of their ini tial meeting in Jamaica was the blueprint for her novel and film "How Stella Got Her Groove Back." "He is like a Duracell, and I want him out of my f***ing life, and he won't let me out of his life. I can't live like this,' McMillan told the newspaper during an emotion al interView that saw both rage and tears from the author. The Chronicle also received several e-mails froiJt McMillan, including this plea: "I just do not want to end up dead because rio one did anything to stop him.' The "Waiting to writer filed for divorce from Plummer in January 2005 following 6 1/2 years of mar riage. was not long after Plummer -23 years her junior '-disclosed he was gay and had been seeing men on the down low. -In the months that followed, Plumqter revealed-that McMillan used gay slurs in letters and phone messages to him, and even left him a bottle of Jamaican hot pepper sauce on which she wrote, "Fag Juice Burn Baby Burn, and scrawled "Jonathan's fag boyfriend fag" on a phote ofa friend. According to the paper, this late'st drama began after Plu_mmer left a message on the answering machine at 7,0oo-square foot home in Blackhawk last March, telling her, "There are JONATHAN PLUMMER And TERRY MCMILLAN On'Oprah'-people that are dying to hear the messages, and it will defi:.. nitely put you back on the homophobic ... urn, you know, stereotype again. All this can go away, you know, if you just, you know; -make ari offer because I just thought I was treated bad... poorly I guess with the settlement offer and ... I just thought, you know, it's just something for me to see if I can get back on my feet again because you know / l'rn struggling.' Since we last heard from the former couple on McMillan told the Chronicle that Plummer has filed "bogus bankruptcy papers' from his failed dog-grooming business and left her holding the bag for back taxes on $32,000 in income he didn't disclose to the Internal Revenue Service. When she replied with a "cease and desist' letter, she -says, Plummer retaliated with the threat to go public with her phone messages. McMillan says she went to the FBI, but the agency called it a civil. mat ter and wouldn't touch it. Eventually, the pair filed new restraining orders against each other with his accusing her (she says falsely) of threatening to kill him or have him killed.' McMillan is currently writ ing her own book about their nasty divorce and her personal disappointment with the court system. She still believes that Plummer, a Jamaican, mar ried her only to get his U.S. citizenship.
