SOL DAVIS, JR. formally requesting this Task Force to do so." Robinson has signed with the City of Tampa in 2002, 2004 and 2006 guaranteeing him contracts, but has gotten no task orders. "The ordinance should have some. penalty for violators of the ordinance: In addition, there should be some requirement in the city staffers job descriptions so when annual performance reviews are done, performance and adherence to the WMBE ordinance be considered in the employ ee's performance review. "I think what you'te doing is great, but I speak for my firm and the fact that we are being discriminated against. A race conscious program for construction needs to be put in place now." City of Tampa Manager Darrell Smith said they are committed to helping small and minority owned businesses and they want dialogue from anyone on how they N do their job better or what o they're doing wrong.

"Our purpose was to respond to' the recommendations proposed by the study and discuss strategy for implementation. I think we accomplished that." Hart identified 6 areas of concern that the committee gave special attention to. Those concerns were: to make sure participation is maximized and all procurement i:s analyzed; minimize financial barriers that hinder participation; enforce program monitoring; legislate accountability; a management system,. and increase outreach and marketing to the small business community. Hart said the comments made during the meetings by the committee will be the actual guide for preparing the ordinance. process, and they be able to work on the. specific project being bided on. "That would down on the amount of time we spend trying to select the right subcontractors for projects." Hart pointed out that when the committee received the recommendations, they began to address some of them immediately. "Issues such as reducing insurance requirements on some projects, and cutting back on excessive coverage as it pertains to risk management were topics we dealt with first." H .art said 'now they will take the comments, work with the city's legal staff to craft a draft or proposed ordinance; and by the end of the month, the draft should be ready. "Early April is our actual b,lrget to get it before the City Council." "f Committee member -Anthony Padilla inquired about sub-contractors getting paid before the priinary con-tractors.

"Extra steps are being made to make sure WMBE participants are notified of all bids and projects/availability through the Demand Star and I haven't gotten one con tract.

COLUMNS Gwen Miller recent election was low-key affair that ayor P a m Iorio won in a landslide. It was giant" like Pam Iorio. It is no accident that Mayor I orio only drew two Black oppo nents. Term limits will cause her to leave the office That will mean that there will be no incumbent mayor and there won't be a candidate with the popularity,ofMs. Iorio. VOTE MARCH 25TH adx:nirable what Aria Green and Marion S. Lewis did as candidates. Pam Iorio did not beat these two men because they were AfricanAmericans. In fact, Marion Lewis ran a very good and serious campaign. Not Dick Greco, not John Sykes, not Frank Sanchez, not Rose Ferlita, not Linda Saul-Sena and not any oth ers who harbored deep ambitions to run for mayor chal. lenged Mayor Pam. It was clear from day one that nobody was going to stop Mayor Pam from serving a What does this mean for Marion S. Lewis? It means that he has four years to prepare himself for a second run at, the Mayor's office. He has three years to do his home work, prepare an appealing platform, and three years to make himself known to the voters and donors of the city second term. I dust Can't .See ltl Lewis was professional, knowledgeable and represent ed himself well. The problem is Lewis was a running against an incumbent, popular mayor. He and Mr. Green ran against a mayor that has been accessible, sensitive to the needs of all citizens and one who has in general, done a very good job. Running for Mayor was a learning for Mario n Lewis. It didn't matter what he did, he was not about to beat Pam Iori o. She takes her job very seriously and she truly enjoys doing her job as this city's mayor. Beginning with the next election, there should be no more races for 'governmental offices that do not include an African-American.

First I remember a face, then a name, and finally an event or circumstance will come to mind that corresponds with the particular memory Inevitably, I find myself confronted with questions like, "What if?" and statements beginning with, "If only." For every instance, my brain computes what seems like a million different scenar ios, all of which are' better than the original. It's during these moments that I began to question everything I've ever heard ting out of bed, not to mention most things I did between the ages of 15 and 30.

LOCAL SPORTS Former H illsborough High Star Help$ Albany State Win Championship Former Hillsborough High School basketball star Tyrone was a key component in Albany State University's winning the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champi onship. Albany State defeated Ft. Valley State University 54. 50, with Evans contributing 7 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals. While attending Hillsboro-ugh High School, .Evans was recognized four times as their 'Most Valuable Player.' Now a"junior, Evans said the championship game was a defensive struggle. "We started the season 312 and I started the first 17 games out of position at power forward. The second part of the season, we had a 6'4" player .join the team and that helped us match up better and put me _back in my natural position. I performed much then, and I held us together during the tour-. nament, averaging 13 points and 7 rebounds." Evans said throughout the season, Albany State stayed together through a lot. of adversity never complained about-being undersized. TYRONE EVANS "We never made any excuses and we prevailed in the end." Tyrone's mother, Phyllis Dukes, said she's very proud of her son, and excited they won the championship. "I think Tyrone helped bring new life to Albany State. "I was able to attend some of his games, and I attend his homecoming games every year along with the rest of the family." Reporter Leon B.

ENTERTAINMENT Simmons .Jewelry Explains New Green Collection Those green bracelets seen at recent red carpet events on such celebs as Beyonce, Naomi Campbell and Eddie Murphy come froin a new line of "conscious jewelry" from The Simmons Jewelry Company, co-owned by Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons.

Upon his return, Simmons and Simmons J ewelTy Co. announced the formation of the Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.) and the -Green Initiative.

Made from native African materials -genuine green malachite beads and a rough African conflict free diamond, the Green Bracelet "embodies the natural beauty of Africa and celebrates the resources this rich continent has to offer," said a statement from The Simmons Co The Green Initiative jewelry collection is a unique combination of modern, traditional and inspirational hip-hop inspired jewelry in -stainless steel, green rubber and diamonds. The line features the diamond encrusted Ohm Watch and Ohm pendant, as well as bracelets-, pendants, chains and rings priced from $250 -$80,000.

Judge Gives Foxy Brown One More Chance Foxy Brown, warned by a New York judge that her next probation offense would be her last, was allowed to remain free (March 1) after she pleaded guilty to violat ing probation by leaving New York without permission. Brown was arrested dur ing a fracas at a beauty sup ply store in Pembroke Pines, Fla., on Feb. 15. Police charged her with resisting an officer and simple battery. Lawyers for the Department of Probation and the Manhattan district attorney's office urged Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson to jail the 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Inga Marchand. Both, in effect, called her incorrigible. But Jackson said, "If she pleads guilty to leaving the jurisdiction without permis sio n, I will allow her to con. tinue on probation with the condition that on the next violation, she's getting resen tenced." "I'm going to give her basi cally what is a third chance," the judge said. "I'm goin g to give her one more chance three strikes and you're out. Basically, I'll be giving the keys to the jailhouse to Ms. Marchand.". Mariah Carey Filming Here Mariah Carey will be in town this week filming the independent movie Tennessee. She's picked up a Southern drawl to play a waitress/singer who flees her controlling husband to join two brothers on their journey from New Mexico to Tennessee to locate their estranged father. Lance Reddick plays her husband; Ethan Peck (Gregory's grandson) and Adam Rothenberg play the brothers. ,. "It's not about my character, but she has an important part of the story with" out the whole thing resting on my shoulders," Mariah tells MTV News. (You may recall she was crucified by the press for her starring role in Glitter.) "Plus, I'll be able to get up and go to work and be somebody else for the day, and we like that because sometimes you 'just need to get away." MARIAH CAREY .She's writing a song with Willie Nelson for the project, which is directed by Aaron Woodley and produced by Lee Daniels of Monster's Ball. Diva Mariah balked at the movie's low -budget constraints, which require her to fly economy class. Writes Liz Smith: "Mariah had the last laugh. She did it. She bought out every seat in economy and flew alone in the economy cabin." Ray 'Benzino' Scott Not Guilty Looks like the former owner and cofounder of the Source magazine and sometime rapper Benzino dodged a bullet. No, not literally but a bullet in the form of a federal conviction for failing to file tax returns. Benzino, whose government name is Ray Scott was found not guilty yesterday by a panel of jurors in Boston on two counts of failure to file tax returns. Scott was facing up to 1 year in jail on each count. "I am very happy to be exonerate d and that the judicial system worked," said Scott in a statement. "This is a case that broke through race barriers, considering there were 12 white jurors, and also broke through hip hop barriers, becaus e I was sitting there as a representative of hip hop, with braids and my songs all coming into play." "It makes me think of a lot of other guys that have been trapped by the judicial sys tem. I encourage anyone out there who has legal issues to get involved with your lawyer. I was very much involved from day one in my case. I was offered to do time b e for e I brought it to trial, RAY 'BENZINO' SCOTT but I fought and I won. I'm a fighter, I'm always gonna be a fighter." "I want to my attorneys and Marty and the 12'Jtirors sitting," Scott Scotf was represented in the case by Miami, Florida-based attor. ney Leonard Sands, who was recently selected by the South Florida legal guide as one of the top, lawyers in criminal law. Co-counsel Martin Leppo, is' a leading criminal attorney in Massachusetts. Scott and his Source partner, Dave Mays, have recently founded a new hip hop publication called Hip Hop Weekly. li
