On the same day, her attorney filed for divorCe. : Judge William Levens ordered Elijah an outfielder for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, to stay away from his wife for a year. The judge also forbids Dukes from hav ing contact with his until he undergoes a psychi atric evaluation. Mrs. NiShea Dukes said the couple was married on 27, 2006. They are parents to a son and a daugh tei. "I can say a lot of positive things about him. He's not a bad person, but he doesn't know how to control his anger and we've talked about that on numerous occasions. "We had some good times and some bad times, but it hurts me for -his family to get on television and portray me as a bad person. They know Elijah has this problem ... Mrs. Dukes filed for the restraining order earlier this month after an incident at her job. Mrs. Dukes is a Hillsborough County teacher at Shields Middle School.

Leaders Tackle Tough Issues At Recent African-Advisory Board Meeting c.. c z m Local community leaders recently met with Congresswoman Kathy Castor to discuss issues facing Tampa's Black community. The inadequacy of the Florida Comprehensive Assess ment Test (FCAT), the lack of affordable housing in Tampa and a shortage of well-trained teachers in Hillsborough County were just a few subjects of discussion at the Congresswoman's first meeting with her recent AfricanAmerican Advisory Board. "I really would like to know about the things that you see, hear and experience in the community. I know that there arc some pertinent issues in Tampa not being tended to, M Congresswoman Castor said to the attendees City Councilman Rev. Thomas Scott, State Sen. Arthenia Joyner, State Rep. Betty Reed, Gerald White from the Tampa Housing Authority Board, Dianne Hart of the East Tampa Business & Civic Association, Clara Cobb of USF, Atty. Donald Odom, Dr. Bruce Miles, Toni Watts, president of the CDC of Tampa, Inc. among others were in attendance. There was extensive discus sion on education and afford able housing. All that's being taught in these schools is FCAT, and there is no room in the curriculum for the teachers to teach," said Dr. Mar1aret Fisher. "Their being so overloaded with this test that when it comes, their tired and frustrated and can't pass the test. It needs to be done away with because too many of our students are becoming discouraged and dropping out." Robert Blount of Brown Ministries said that 3 grade FCAT scores determine the number of prisons that will be built in the distant future, based upon the frustration that students face with the test. James Evans of the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope stated th'at 46 percent of students in Hillsborough County didn't receive a passing grade on the test. Rev. Scott and Evans along with several others agreed the test should be elimi nated. The two also had similar views on the potential problems with the Central Park Village development project. "There is a possibility that this Central Park project will r)ot happen because the devel opers have said the numbers aren't working," said Rev. Scott. "There are definitely some things need to be worked out before this project takes place." All of the attendees agreed thnt there needs to be morr City Councilman Rev. Thomas Scott, Atty.

PurUe Victorious said to his lady-friend while attemptins to explain his backslldins ways. He said, "I ain't never told a lie I didn't mean to make come true, some day!" No doubt, Rev. Purlie would have been a hero, especlal1y to Karen Kiehl. That's pronounced"Keel." And Karen Kiehl combined her love of scripture with a natural ability to persuade people who were down on their luck and an overridinslust for money, and was on her way to becomins a quiet queen of fraud . until she was eaupt, here recently. It happened in Valiico, where self-styled, homespun evansellst Karen Kiehl conned common folks into believins that with a little of their hard-earned money (in actuality, a lot of their hard-earned money), she could write p-auds that would make their dreams come true. And in time, their dreams did come true. Too bad for them, they were nl&htmaresr And so, we put down our pens and ask our readers sincerely, "What makes people forsake their common sense aud scatter their Uves and their hard-earned savinp before the of sharks? Even in the name of God, what makes people leave their common sense and spread themselves like bullfrop across Route 301? Furthermore, many of the victims are Black. Goins back 30 years to the Jonestown horror, in the junpes of Guyana, the of the dead there too were Black. What is it that people are loold.ns for?"

He answered prior to His death in Luke 11:46: "Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! For ye lade men with burden grievous to be borne, and ye yourself touch not the burden with one of your fingers. Luke 11:47: "Woe unto you! For ye build the sepulchres of the prophets and your fathers lcilled them. This is crystal clear that the lawyers are responsible for protecting the Civil Rights of the people. Luke 11:52 further states: "Woe unto you, lawyers! For ye have taken away the key of knowledge; ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. There is a lack of lawyers today addressing Civil Rights violations of the people. Take away the key of knowledge of our struggle of the 1960s movement. Dr. Martin Luther Kins, Jr. started to give ministers a practical view of the gospel of Jesus when he took to the streets fighting for our civil rights as a follower of Jesus' message. Today, poli tics are taken out of the gospel of Jesus in error, because the very nature of the gospel was political. If we look, historically, at the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. used the gospel as the empo wennent of his movement as a Christian. What has happened? A true soul searching is needed by our spiritual leaders to go back to the streets to protest and demon strate about the widespread killings of Black men here in Tampa. Without justice, there is no peace. .Just Imagine Just imagine eating rcomed beef, sardines, tuna, Vienna sausage, or potted meat for dinner.

What is wrong with us? Collectively speaking. what is on our minds? Dwight David Eisenbower, former president and past war hero, warned us about our future. In his farewell speech he said we should beware of becoming slaves to what he called the American "Industrial-WarComplex." In simple terms, he defined it as a militaryeconomic mind-set, which saw the fortunes of our society cemented together by the belief that American prosperity was dependent upon a war-economy. In other words, America would be at its economic best, only in times of war. The man who had emerged as the primary hero of World War II pleaded with America and the world not to be seduced by the drugs of bullets, technology and gun powder, but it was a perfume too intoxicating to ignore. Combined with the barbiturates of racism and sexism, War-Industrialism proved more erotic and more irresistible than even sex, heroin or crackcocaine! Hence, America became and continues to become a "Warrior Society." Almost everything we think about has either. overtones of battle or booty. Have you ever thought about t hat?

The mob killing alone may not be enough to warrant an alarm being sound, but couple it with why it was done, along with the fact that the incident was captured on a camera phone and you may have the recipe for the begin ning of an apocalyptic countdown. Think aoout it. What are the odds of an ancient form of execution and a modern piece of technological equipment coming together to bring the world one of the most outrageous stories of the 21St century? If that' s not strange enough, just a few days prior to the stoning, a popular daytime talk show featured Ivy League college students who produced pornographic movies and magazines to earn money while in school. Not only was their work being approved by the institutions, but one x-rated mag azine entitled the H-Bomb at Harvard Univers ity was actually being financed by the school's student government the ethics of their religious ideologies can result in, well you've seen the video-clip. Herein lies the crux of the issue. The "Do Yours" vs. the "You Better Nots." Two polar opposite systems are trying to co-exist inside of the same time and space. One maintains a death grip on the past The other continues on its steady course into the future. Neither is willing to compromise. The tension created by these two forces pulling in opposite directions can only have one results, a sudden snap that propels each of them into utter chaos ,.::==============================..., Believe me, I can't make this II B n stuffup. While some of you may be ready to lock me in a padded room next to the guy from the comer, think about this. Today, while I was writing this piece, they ran a story on Good Morning America about a female shark giving birth in captivity. What's the significance you ask? She hadn't been around any other sharks, male or female, in the last three years. They're calling it a "'Virgin birth." ..

His parents, James and Sharon Hatcher, admit they didn't take it seriously at first, but once they noticed how much he'd written, they encouraged him. "I noticed he'd take a pad and pencil everywhere we'd go. When a child is interested in something positive, you have to encourage them." Ms. Hatcher said at first his writings weren't that good, but the more he concen trated on it, the better he got. Now she has him studying courses in literature, journal ism, writing and English in school and he's also in a scholarship program called "Educational Talent Search."

"We were looking to use 3 to 4 acres of the 22-acres of cityowned property for the site. The site will not service hazardous waste or raw garbage, but will be a drop off center for things residents have to dispose of, like old furniture, refrigerators and yard waste.

LOCAL Hospital Manager Said Black Contractors Not Being Ignored ., :c c }< C'c: z m BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer During the past t'(Vo years, Tampa General Hospital has awarded millions of dollars in construction contracts. But a recent report outlining the amount of contracts awarded to. African Americans has drawn comments from some in the community. The Second Quarter 2006-2007 Minority Business Enterprise Participation Report showed that $3,222,379.08 was.spent on total construction. Of that amount; African American contractors received less than $5,000; less than $8,000 of $1,944,049.38 for General Goods and Services; and nothing for Professional ServiCes ($654,359.08) and Medical Supplies and Services ($1, 752,562.89). After receiving the report, Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin White said, "As one of the newest board members, the numbers were appalling and the two previous reports were just as dismal. "I've told the hospital that they need to have the administrators at the next meeting to explain this report. The amount of contracts awarded to Blacks is ridiculous. This project is $170,000 million and we should have had at least one or two Black millionaires from this,'" Commissio-ner White stated. LESMILLER Minority Business Development Manager position at the University of South Florida, Les Miller, Jr., served as the Minority Business Development Manager for T a m p a General. He currently serves parttime in that KEVIN WHITE County Commissioner JOSEPH ROBINSON Business Owner position for the hospital. Commissioner White said, "If we have these numbers when he (Miller) was serving full time, what are the numbers going to look like when he's serving part time?" When contacted by the Sentinel, Les Miller said, "The report shows when a contract has been awarded or renewed, it shows during that quarter. But we do business with the company for the life of the contract. "We have 16.9% minority businesses registered with us and we have done business with 14.4%.

They won the next two games to even the series at 2 games apiece. It seems that LeBron James isn't ready to stop playing this season. The only thing sure about the championship game is that the San Antonio Spurs will be there. Keon:Young,Gifted And Black BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer The Tampa Bay Buccaneers receivers may look a little different when they take the field for the 2007 season. Bucs head coach J o n Gruden is considering some personnel change!';, and the only receiver who seems safe from a demotion is veteran wide receiver Joey Galloway. The 36-year-old receiver has had over 1,000 yards receiving the past two seasons. However, Michael Clayton may have some competition as the second starting receiver. .. 1 think there's going to be a lot of competition at the wide receiver position. We've got some great players trying out, and they all bring something that could be valuable MAURICE STOVALL to our football team," !'aid Gruden. Maurice Stovall has impressed Gruden and his coaching staff. The 2nd-year receiver filled in for an injured Clayton late last season posting seven catches 1\) and 102 yards. Clayton, a 8 fourth-year player from LSU, ....,. has had two sub-par seasons after a stellar rookie season. The Bucs also have new additions to their wide receiver core inclu.ding former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens, and David Boston who has played in several Pro Bowls for other teams. .. That' s one of the great things about training camp is that everybody starts with a clean slate," said Gruden. .. We want to put players on the field that will help us win football games, and get us back in the playoffs. We're going to try our best to find a 'T1 combination that's produc-r-tive and gives us the best opportunity to win." Tampa Bay Devil Rays outfielder, Elijah Dukes is a talented, but troubled young man. Because of his poor judgment, the young fellow has been beaten up pretty good by the press. These people want Dukes' blood, his life and his job. Ever heard of Keon Broxton? If not, write the name down. You will be hearing about him. Keon is what you call young, gifted and Black. Young Broxton is 16 years old, stands 6'3" and tips the scale at 195 pounds. The senior-to-be is also an honor student. He is a starting wide receiver for last year's # 1 ranked football team.

,.... 0 0 N Williams Sisters Continue z To Unnerve Opponents >;' u. Venus Williams hit only four aces in her second-round win, but one was 129 mph, establishing a record. The ball skidded, almost imperceptibly, through the service box. Harkleroad never had a chance; later, she would ask if she even touched it. The modest-sized electronic display board flashed the number: 206. It was history-206 kilometers-per-hour translates to 129 miles-per-hour, making it the fastest-recorded serve in the history of women's tennis -but Williams herself probably was the only one in the intimate circus that is Court 1 who immediately grasped its significance. She started laughing to >-herself. 'C "'loved it," Williams said later. J lost a little bit u. because I saw the 206. I was C so excited because I broke my record. When I was younger, I was always trying a to serve harder and harder, m and now I'm not trying to W serve hard. "'t comes hard.

Serena is 25: That's three years older than Martina Bingle when she first retired and two years .older than Kim Clijeters was when CJijJten recently decided to retire. VENUS WILUAMS Just when you think they're finished, they come at you hard. At this point, with 13 Grand Slam singles titles between them, it shouldn't be so unexpected. Venus Williams took out Harkleroad on Wednesday 6-1, 7-6 (8) to advance to the third round at Roland Garros. She could be forgiven for losing her focus after that second-set bomb and losing five straight games. It is worth noting that the record Venus broke belonged to her sister, who hit one 127 mph last year in Cincinnati. If the mark is officially recognized, Venus will have four of the six fastest serves on record. Fact, is the Williams sisters still manage to be intim idating. Harkleroad inti mated as much after the match. -For some reason, I don't play the way that I (usually) do if I'm playing somebody else," Harkleroad said. -I'm still a little tentative. .:.. w z Suhs

. LOCAL Hill's Death Ruled Drowning NEW ORLEANS --The death of New England Patriots defensive end Marquise Hill, who fell off a jet ski in Lake Pontchartrain, was ruled an accidental drowning on Tuesday. An autopsy found no signs of drug or alcohol in Hill's body, although more tests are planned and will take two weeks to complete, said Orleans Parish coroner Dr. Frank Minyard. Minyard said Hill might have suffered a mild concus sion when he fell off the water craft. "He might have hit the right side of his face above the eye when he fell off the craft," Minyard said. "He had a pretty nasty bruise there." There was a slight amount of blood in the brain, which could indicate a concus si on, Minyard said. "That could have caused him some confusion," Minyard said.

And, I always wondered how in the world they would recover ... How can we in the church help others if we will not take advantage of the help that is offered to us from God?, Mrs. Cole said. She says, 'help is on the wayr As a result of her ezperi ences in the church, the Lord has dictated two books through her that deal with sin: SCHISM: From Division To Unity which deals with sin amonpt leaders in the church and From Sin to Spiritual Peace, which conaiat or 3 ser mons and al8o deals with sin. It also stresses the importance or church leadership. ISAAC RUFFIN Minister Of Music/Songwriter The play's function is twofold, says Mrs. Cole. "To help our church leadership who are knowingly sinning and to help those who have been hurt by spiritual leaders. -Jaac RuttiD will coordinate all music and sinprs for this production. He has worked very hard to make sure that God's agenda is met with this production, she stated. 'TI ::::0 c )> .. < C'c: z m N 0 0 ....., 0 ::D a ,..

Are we a part of the problem, or are we a part of the solution? said Master P. Take A Stand Records, the movement.

Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following: 1) References : Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home 2) Proof of Funds : Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use a "Quick Cash Fast Closing" tactic to get you to sign on the line, then they run around town trying to find someone to buy their contract 3) Occupational license: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of their occupational license. At the Rehabber's Superstore we have the cash to buy, and we can close all deals in 3 days. More importantly we can provide you with our credentials.
