FEATURES Mayor Reviews Executive -Order On Disparity Study GREGllART MBEManager City of Tampa Minority Business Development Manager Greg Hart, and City Attorney David Smith addressed the City Council Thursday on the issue of the completed Disparity Study. The City Council is expected to have a final ordinance that will govern the WMBE and SBE Programs by the end of the month. Executive Order 98-02 provides the City of Tampa with a program to encourage WMBE participation. Smith told Council members the Disparity Study established that there is no disparity in the city's subcontracting program, and the city immediately stopped all applications of Executive Order 98-02 that were inconsistent with the Disparity Study findings. . "Contractors need to know of the pool of sub contractors available and we also require they report how many WMBE's are being utilized for their projects. That data will help us track utilization. ; "There should not be a challenge right now to include sub-contractors, and they should have the ability to move forward with permits with the amended Executive Order. The new amended order will have to have certain amounts of minority or women contractors bidding on contracted services from the city." Councilman Thomas Scott said the final Disparity will come at the end of May, and his concern is the oroinance will be enforced by city administration in accordance executive order. "I will submit some parts of the ordinance to COUNCILMAN THOMAS SCOTT our legal department for further review. The Small Business Enterprise component needs to be enhanced and strengthened more. Overall, I feel everything is going in the right direction." Greg Hart said the amended Executive Order is a transitional effort to bridge the current gap between the SBE and WMBE Programs. "It was determined that the existing 98-02 Executive Order was in conflict with findings by the Disparity Study, and those are being amended as far as the day to day administering of the program is concerned." Hart said the existing order allowed them to establish mandatory race and gender subcontracting goals. "That is no longer applicable based on the disparity study findings. We no longer have a legal basis to require bidders to meet those goals." Hart said the amended Executive Order will immediately address the deficiencies the disparity study revealed relating to the use of prime contractors. "As part of the amended Executive Order, the Mayor will include 3 new features. One of them will be a s96 bid discount, not to exceed $10,000 for certified SBE firms. Preference points will also be given on weighted qualifica tion values such as experience. "We're enhancing the SBE Program to expand oppartunities forsmall businesses at the prime contracting level." Reporter Leon B.

"A lot of us don't attend the class reunions of our high schools because we don't feel a connection. We don't know most of the students, so we don't see much of each other after we graduate." Ms. Frazier said last "So far, we have about 30 people committed to attending the reunion, but once the word gets out, we expect a lot more." Ms. Frazier said a lot of students were upset because the 1970 Desegregation Plan didn't give them the opportu. nity to attend the schools they wanted.

Florida's Shame: Justice Delayed For Crotzerl en we went to press, the 2007 Florida : Legislative session had missed a second oppor''''J'l:''''""""'h.,nitv to right an injustice to Alan Crotzer, who spent 24 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. With the Florida Senate pitting Crotzer's $1.2 million compensation bill against the $4.8 million compensation bill for the family of Martin Lee Anderson, the Florida House of Representatives was forced to separate the two bills in order to get the Anderson compensation bill through the Senate. Anderson's death at the hands of boot camp guards deserved every bit of the $4.8 million (and more), just as Alan Crotzer deserved at least the $1.2 million ($so,ooo for every year he spent in prison) under consideration for compensation to him. However, no one dared compare Anderson's death to Crotzer's stay in prison as a reason why Crotzer must wait. Nevertheless, last year, while denying Crotzer's compensation, the Legislature awarded $2 million to Wilton Dedge, a white man who spent 22 years in prison as opposed to Crotzer's 24 years in prison. Could the fact that Crotzer is Black have made the difference? Or was it the fact Dedge had a clean record and that Crotzer had been previously "convicted of stealing beer as a young man?" Indeed, we are perplexed! People are talking. You be the judge. This year, Senate lawmakers made what we deemed to be lame excuses for not compensating Crotzer. One reason given was the ll'ck of money in the $72 billion budget, which had about $1 billion in unspent money that the Senate wanted to spend on "public works road paving projects." Another reason was the need for a set formula for compensating any and all inmates wrongfully incarcerated. The fact that Crotzer had drawn more support than other wrongfully convicted inmates from the press, lawmakers, attorneys, lobbyists and the public in petitioning lawmakers to compensate him was the lamest excuse of all. We think, unless one takes into consideration the $6o million subsidy to help build a new ball park in Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami, which the Legislature recently passed. Furthermore, the fact that our own Senator Charlie Crist chairs the Senate Crill)inal Justice Budget Committee, where the compensation bill is stalled makes the matter a bitter pill to swallow indeed. Yet, none of the aforementioned reasons justify delaying justice for Crotzer for another year. This man has already 26 years! We say, let him wait no longer! We say, "Shame, shame, shame on an insensitive and obviously racist Florida Senate!" Not one more year should this wronged man have to wait! You have freed Bro. Crotzer. Now free his money! Pass it on! !He Kept Our Buses Rlllnnlngll .. !et's We take a lot for granted. Somefolks : say we take too much for granted. And 'one of the things many of us take for granted is < whether or not the buses will run on time,. or at all. In truth, we don't think about things like that because -W like the blood_coursing through our veins, or the-sun .that comes up every, morning -our buses have always Drive By Shootings And School VIolence (Series) ;he drive-by shooting of :Jefferson High School ,,,,,,,,,,, ...... Cedric Mills in front of his home reminded me of the school violence that frequently occurred between Black students on campus. Whether that problem was seriously addressed is any body's guess. Those kids were just quickly escorted off cam pus, and as long as the safety of the majority of students' was ascertained, there was no serious investigation or case studies. Nobody seemed to really care, as long as those gang-like activities stayed under control and policed in the immediate environment. There is behavior in the Black community that has become an integral part of "Black-on-Black crime." Even as small children, Black youth in most inner-city neighborhoods have developed patterns as assembling which often end up in fights. Somehow, the community must find ways to study and investigate this kind of behav ior, which tends to fester into undesirable attitudes. Deaths as occurred from drive-by shootings could be traced to this early conduct. It appears that the kind of problems associated with the _conduct of Black youths is never addressed. We need courses in the cur riculums of the likes of your Jefferson High School, and Middleton High that take Black students out of those destructive habitats. These stunts must identify with the dignified history of our fore bears. They must be exposed to relationships between themselves that dictate loving and caring for and about one another. Why does the slightest dis agreement have to end with a tragic consequence? We are not educating our young people properly in the public places. Social and political education is passing the young Black generation by. Once Again A Victiml an. Crotzer was a ctim of the state's udicial system. He was a victim of a tragic error that took more than half of his life from him. And now, he's a victim of a legislative body that would make him a victim again because they refuse to cqmpensate him. Crotzer's "nightmare began more than 25 years ago when he was a teenager. He was arrested, tried, and convicted of raping a woman and her 12-year-old daughter. He always said he was not the culprit, but "a jury of his peers" convicted him anyway. Year after year, he professed his innocence, and the world evolved into a place that was foreign to him. Year after year, his pleas for help fell on deaf ears. Then a few years ago, he got the attention of the Innocence Project and through DNA, he was cleared. You would think that the legislators would willingly give him $5o,ooo for every year of his incarceration. You would think that their attitudes and their votes would convey their sympathy for one wrongly convicted. But, they decided that while they sympathize with Crotzer, they didn't have the money to compensate him. How many times is the state going to do this horrible thing? The reason given was that they didn't have the money. Well, if they had given him monthly allotments that would have been better than nothing. At least it would have shown that their hearts were in the right place. Yet, they didn't hesitate to waste precious time granting one of their peers the right to be buried with his dogs. They should have been trying to find a way to compensate this man. Well, "compen.:. sate" may be a bad choice of words. There is no amount of money they can give him. Nearly 25 years of his life was stolen. They should collectively hang their heads in shame. They shou_ld be trying to right a wrong instead of adding to Crotzer's pain. been there for us. And we assume they always will be the_re for us. But the man responsible for. seeing that the buses would always be there is no longer behind the wheel. Just recently, he left us. And this editorial is for him. Doubtless you've ever heard of Ray Miller. If you did, it was by of a comment on the six o'clock news, or perhaps a minor newspaper article buried on page 27. Ray Miller made news, but not major news. Miller was Executive' Director of the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority. But we called his organization HART. For two years, Ray ran his outfit with unusual patience, tenacity and most fascinating of all, vision. People say if Ray Miller was unything, he was a man of vision. Was he a visionary? In a profession based on multi-ton vehicles, changing demographics and shifting politics, most would say yes, Ray Miller was indeed a visionary ... a breath of fresh air in a cutthroat business. . Just recently, Ray Miller died. Cancer was the culprit that killed him. However, never having met the man nor sataown to hear how passionate he believed that transit was indeed a people-dedicated reality, one cannot help but feel we hastened .... his demise. Every time we cursed a bus for being late or for not getting us where we needed to go in a so-called timely manner. But that's how we consumers are. It's all about us ... about what we want and how we feel. No matter, today, we wait on the corner as the buses go by. And as they come to a stop, we do not board, but bow our heads and cover our hearts in commemoration for the man who kept them running on our behalf. Ray Miller, we hardly knew you. And yet, by God, we're going to miss you. Pass it

The rationale is Gun Control Is A Must! mericans are dying by e thousands every day, and it's not from natural causes. Instead these deaths are a result of illegal possession or ownership of guns, avoidable accidents and ego scratching. Guns and gun possession has gotten completely out of control. Guns are owned or possessed by young children, criminals, crazy people, bul lies and cowards seeking to boost their courage and re putations. There are so many guns on our streets today until no one is safe, not even the police. I know that our constitu tion guarantees citizen's the 'right to own firearms. However, we must control who can a gun, how many guns a citizen can own; the type of guns and use of guns. In the past, lawmakers --were, so afraid. of .. th' e National Rifle Association, until they have allowed gun ownership and gun control to roll on uncontrolled. But it is time these elected officials get some moxie, and do what they must do and that is to make some laws. Gun sellers must do checks : on the background of every buy_er. guqs. must be regtstered: Individual gun owners should be required to check their guns at least bi-weekly. If a gtin is missing, then it should be mandatory that it be reported to the police. Some restrictions must be placed. OIJ. linding guns. Maybe the gun lenders should retain some liability for any damage their loaned gun may cau,se. Under no conditions should mentally disturbed people; be allowed to own, borrow or carry a g;un. These suggestions may sound radical, but we are talking about a gun. We are talking about an instrument that is increasingly being used to commit mass murder. Citizens who meet certain standards should be allowed to own a gun_,_ .. but they should not be allowed to own guns that shoot 15 or more times without having to reload. Likewise, they should not be allowed :to own assault weapons.

She's enjoyed phenomenal success with her business, I.N.A.T T I., and some ofher customers affectionately refer to her as "the tag lady." Looking around, Ms. Howard felt there had to be a way she could share her knowledge on how to become a successful business owner. Ms. Howard lias started a . ministry, "Wealth From Home, Wealth By Faith Then Works Ministry," with hopes that it will empower clergy and parishioners to become self-sufficient and entrepreneurs. "I started this last month, and I feel God is leading me in a direction to empower others. I strongly believe as children of God, He wants us to prosper and be successful. How can we help the need if we are needy? We need to bless others as we've been blessed with success." Ms. Howard said this model of entrepreneurship she wants to share has a proven success record. "I was taught this model by others who have been taught it and I feel it's a blessing to offer it and share it with no charge. You don't have to be of any partjcular faith or denomination."

BY LEON B. CREWS ,, Sentinel Staff Writer (An Analysis) During the modern era of the National Football League, African American athletes have been praised for their prowess at every position except quarterback. Marlon Briscoe of the Denver Broncos was the first African American quarterback in the NFL during the modern era, followed by James Harris, Joe Gilliam, Doug Williams, and Warren Moon. Today, virtually every NFL team has either had or currently has a Black quarterback on their roster. However, the perception of those athletes today is the same as it was when Marlon Briscoe played. When a white quarterback is t alked about, he's described as b eing smart, brainy, intelli gent, and easily able to catch on to a professional system. However, when a Black quarterback is talked about, he's d escribe d as havin g a strong arm, quick feet, and b eing athletic .Does that mean they have all of those abilitie s but lack intelligence? Another perception is Bl a ck quarterbacks can't play in the NFL if they're too short. Heisman trophy w!nner Troy Smith barely got drafte d because he's 6 feet tall, and NCAA football champion. Chris Leak didn't get drafted cr: because of his height. Leak was signed as a .free agent ,... with the Chicago Bears Lovie Smith has capture d a f truegem. CHRIS LEAK Yet, NFL quarterbacks Drew Brees, Jeff Garcia, and a few others not only flouri s h but are well sought after in the NFL despite their stature. No matter what it may look like on the outside, and no matter how you may point out that there are Black quarte r backs in the NFL, the only reason they are there i s because of their size and athletic ability. I've never heard Donovan McNabb, Byron Leftwich, Aaron Brooks, Steve McNair, or any other Black quarterback described as being intelligent and smart. Since when was ability based on height? Since when were Troy Smith and Chris Leak unable to play professionally because they're too short? I've n ever heard that ex cus e used for a whit e quar-' terback. Any excuse will work in justification of passing on a proven winner and selecting quarterbacks from BYU, University of Houston, and other sc hool s that n e ver play TROY SMITH Division 1 talent. How can you be the best player in college football (Heisman winner) and then f a ll to the 5th round of the draft? Smith was 20-2 with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Leak led the Florida Gators to the champion ship. Let me tell you why they fell s o far. The white m e di a The ESPN analysts, radio sport personal ities started a nationwide witch-hunt against Smith and Leak. "They're to o short," "Can t play at the n ex t level," "Smith was terrible in the big game." This kind of talk was con stant for about three months. You think the NFL teams don't listen? I hope Smith and Leak make them all s orry but the perc e ption of the Black quarterback will never die. Unti l w e get Bl ack NFL team own ers, athletes like Smith and Leak will continue to take a back seat to athletes not even clos e to their talent level, and NFL teams will continue to play musical chairs with white quarterbacks who are proven lo sers. Bucs Acquire DT Sims From Chiefs; Release CB -Juran Bolden JURAN BOLDEN The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to make adjustments to their defense on Tuesday. The Bucs acquired former Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Ryan Sims, a firstround draft in the 2002 draft.

RELIGIOUS -.-School Kingdom (us 5). They praised again in verse 6 The purpose of this praise was because they knew that the Lord God Almighty reigns. This is enough to praise God for This gives reason enough to praise. Regardless of life's situations you can find comfort in knowing that God Almighty reigns. God will avenge His word God will do what He said He would do BY REV. RICKY WIGGS There Is A Reason For -The Praise Therefore, we have a reason to praise. As we consider the justice God has dispatched upon the wickedness of the world, there is reason to praise. We praise because of who God is and because of what He has done. John continues to share his visions in Revelation 19. This part of what he is seeing is a great cause for worship and pra ise Jt is still vital to point out that all of what John is see ing is occurring as he is led by the Spirit. We can celebrate some things before they happen, however, they must first be seen in the spirit. John writes in 19:1, 2 that the people began to praise God John gives us the reason for their praise. He says that they are praising G;od for His righteous judgments. This is a recurring event in this chapter. The people praise God with rea son Each time he tells us that they praised, he also tells us why As we live and serve the Lord, we must realize that our praise and worship are with reason. Knowing why you are praising God makes it easier to praise. When we see people praising, they are praising for a reason. Can the opposite be true? Those who do not praise may not have realized a reason to praise . In this chapter they are prais ing God because He has rightly judged a nation. Their praising is not in celebration of the downfall of a nation. We must be careful that we do not celebrate the fall of individuals. Even when people have done you wrong and bad things hap pen to them that should not be the reason for your praise. Your first hope is that the individual would repent and turn from their ways. They praised God for doing what He said He would do. They praised God because He showed that He was true to His word. Their praise was more about the actions of God and less about the destruction of men. You have reason to praise because God has defended His word on your behalf. The calamity that befalls workers of iniquity is just God's justice. John writes that everyone in their respected places praised God It did not matter their status or position in the !it.

T. Smith Warnings from the Bible Deute;.onomy 4:2 "Ye shail not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you." II John 1:9 "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son." The above passages (and a number of others throughout the Bible) warn us not to add to, take from nor transgress (go beyond) what God has said in His word -the Bible. Yet, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12). People seem to think they can improve on God's Word Let me give you just one example. Many of the preachers in this area make a plea for people to do God's will. Yet when they tell them what to do to be saved, they says: "accept Christ as your personal Savior and pray the sinners prayer." Question: In what passage of Scripture did Jesus or any of the apostles ElVer tell a person to "accept Christ as his savior and pray the-sinners' prayer" in order to be saved? Honestly, I have never read where Christ or His apostles ever told anyone to do this. I ask you our readers. Where?

You Have Nothing ToIQB But The Weigl I Cold-Fighting Foods The news made headlines around the world: Chicken soup really does help fight colds. But chicken soup isn't the only food that might help. Here's a daily menu based on experts' recommendations. Breakfast Orange juice or half a grape fruit. Both are great sources of vitamin C, which could short en the duration of colds. Whole-grain cereal or bread. Whole grains are rich in vitamins and minerals, including zinc and vitamin E, which can help keep your immune system healthy. a clove or two of garlic. Anise-seed cookie. Anise seeds, with their licorice-like flavor, have been found to help break up congestion. Dinner Salad of bitter greens. Watercress and arugula can make a salad special-and research shows they may also have antiviral effects. Bitter greens are especially helpful in relieving chest congestion, sniffles, and coughs. Pasta with tomato sauce and plenty of garlic. Because the pungent bulb is one of the most potent disease-fighting foods around, it's worth hav ing at least two servings a day. Raw garlic has the most benefits, but cooked-garlic also packs a punch. Ginger tea. It's different and refreshing-and, Duke says, "ginger is loaded with virus fighting substances, including several that act directly against cold viruses." (One substance, gingerol, can suppress coughing.) Boil water; then steep a tablespoon of fresh shredded ginger for 2 or 3 minutes. Black tea. Real tea leaves (not herbal) have substances that speed the action of cilia, the tiny hair like cells lining your nasal pas-sages, helping them expel germs. Raising Kidney Transplant Awareness In The Black Community Mid-Morning Snack Yogurt. It can help you maintain a healthy immune system, as long as it contains beneficial bacteria. One cup of yogurt with live active cultures or a glass of kefir a day provides all you need. Lunch Chicken soup. The Nebraska researchers used a traditional recipe they called "Grandma's Soup," which had veggies like onions, parsnips, and carrots, along with chick en. But most of the commercial varieties they tested reduced inflammation, too. For even more protection, add Kidney failure is the most common reason for a kidney transplant: Blacks are at a greater risk for end-stage kid ney disease because of higher than-average rates of diabetes, high blood pressure and other immunologic fa'ctors. Even though higher numbers of Black patients may be candi dates for a kidney transplant, they typically wait longer for a compatible kidney donor. Why -are blacks, which are more likely to need a kidney transplant, having a harder time finding a suitable kidney-? Overall, there are less suitable organs available, and blacks are more likely to fall into a higher-risk category. Take Care Of Your Fe.et. .. They Have To Last A Lifetime!

A Organ Donation According to the Organ Procurement and Transplan tation Network (OPTN), there are more than 73,000 patients awaiting kidneys on the U.S. transplant waiting list, with over 25,000 representing the black community. Organ donation can come in two forms, either from living or nonliving donors. Healthy peo ple with two functioning kid neys can donate to a person in need and still enjoy a normal lifestyle. Transplants from liv ing donors have considerable advantages over transplants from nonliving donors. A kid ney from a living donor will usually function immediately and may last longer. By com parison, some nonliving donor kidneys do not function right away, and the patient may need dialysis until the kidney starts to function. Treatments If you receive a kidney transplant, your body knows that the new kidney is not an origi nal part of your body. Your body will attack the new kidney and try to damage or destroy it. Almost everyone who has a transplant must take drugs called immunosuppressant every day to stop this from happening. Immunosuppressant drugs lower your body's ability to attack or "reject" your newly transplanted kidney. Regular checkups at your transplant center will help to spot any problems and start treatment before a problem gets worse. The good news is that treatments have come a long way. For more information on organ transplant and kidney donation, visit the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Web site at www. kidney.org. The most important thing is to talk to your doctor about ways you can take care of yourself. Don't be afraid to discuss kidney health and organ donation with your doctor.

Neither Eve nor her two passengers appeared to have suffered any injuries, police said. Video of the incident obtained by E! shows the rapper-actress getting handcuffed by officers. TMZ, meanwhile, describes Eve as "visibly upset" during the arrest. She submitted to a blood alcohol test, but the results were not immediately avail able, per the LAPD. She was EVE booked for suspicion of driving under the influence and held in custody until 6 a.m., when her manager posted $30,000 bail. During her sojourn at the Hollywood division, police confirm she was visited by Sean Penn. No word on what connection the Oscar winner has with Eve; a police spokeswoman told E! News Penn had "nothing to do with the DUI" and was apparently "visiting as a friend." There was no immediate comment from either Eve or Penn's publicist.

Popular Book Series Being Added To School's Reading Curriculum Middle and high school students who normally were reluctant to read are more motivated says Christine Van Brunt, the supervisor of secondary media programs for the Hillsborough County School District. The Bluford Book series has changed the way many teens in Hillsborough County view reading, especially African American students. The book series was 'introduced to Hillsborough County Schools two years ago, and have become increasingly popular. The fictional characters in the thirteen-book series all attend Bluford High. "The students are able to identify with the characters. The main characters in the book are teenagers going through problems that many of the students can relate to, said Van Brunt. "It seems that once a middle or high school student reads one of ):hese books, they're hooked." Darlene Meginnis, the Media Specialist at Liberty Middle School, says that the Bluford Book Series is the most popular book series in the school's library. She says that the series is extrem_ely popular among minority stu dents, and is becoming a craze with all students. "The books have been rece1vmg an amazing response.

I recommend the program be made more feasible for the people who don't have the money to pay." Ms. Barber pointed out that grandparents raising children are most affected, because they are on fixed incomes. "I think we sometimes forget how big an impact economics has on the average family today. Priorities are different now, and some things just aren't taken care of." Ms. Barber said any parent who wanting to find out more about KidCare can come by the Lee Davis Center at 3402 North 22nd Street or other social service centers. Florida KidCare is for children, not adults. To qualify a child must be under the age of 19, be unin_sured,' meet income eligibility requirements, beaU.

Reconciliation Act (COBRA) requires continuation of your employersponsored health insurance with there is a "qualifying event." A qualifying event is (1) death, (2) termination of employment,' (3) reduction in hours, ( 4) divorce from participant spouse, (4) entitlement of medicare, and (5) loss of dep.endent coverage (e.g., when the child turns 21). In McGann v. H & H Music Co. (5th Cir. 1991), the employee contracted AIDS and soon thereafter the employer reduced its medical coverage for AIDS to a lifetime benefit of $5,000.00. The employee sued, alleging that the employer violated Section 510 of the Employee Retirement Income Act of 1974. The McGann court ruled against the employee, holding that unless an employer's intent is to discriminate against a particular employee, an employer has an absolute right to alter. the terms of medical cover age for employees. COBRA extends coverage from between 18 to 36 months, depending upon ,. -the qualifying event. TIP#&O Have you lost your job but still need your employer-sponsored health insurance?
