CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Residents and civic association leaders have spoken out on a pro9osed drop-off center on 22n Street just north of Sligh Avenue. David McCary, City of Tampa Solid Waste Director, wants to use 3 to 4 acres of the 22-acre site as a drop-off center. Comments on the proposed site are mixed, but most feel the proposed location is not a good idea. MARVIN KNIGHT .... Businessman LL. Businessman Marvin Knight: "The proposed area is <( closed in I drove through there, > and there are a lot of housing < renovations going on. The river is close by, a baseball park is W close, and other areas that would be affected by this pro> ject a: "There's no guarantee there W won't be hazardous waste [ij dumped into the nearby river. I 0 w :I: think they should do a better job of enforcement against the abusers of illegal dumping, instead of putting the burden on taxpayers and residents. It makes no sense to dump it at one site, pick it up, and take it to another site for disposal. That's not cost effective, and the proposed area has no industrial components No one wants this near or in their community." ROBERTSCO'IT ..... President, River Grove Association Robert Scott, President of the River Grove Civic Association: "We don't want that in our community. I think it's a disgrace. Why do they want to put everything undesirable near Black communities? We've always had a beautiful community and this is not what we need. We're totally opposed to it being located at that site. Help us to keep our community clean by putting this somewhere else. We just don't want drop off cen ters or dumps near our homes."

BODY GWEN MILLER City Council Chair Gwen Miller, City Council Chairperson: "My opinion is we need it, but not at that location. It's too close to the adjoining neighborhood. If it closes down, we'll be stuck with it. Perhaps there needs tQ be more research into the problem of how to deal with illegal dumping. Maybe once a month, citizens should put on the curb everything they don't want, and we'll get rid of it." THOMAS SCOTT City Councilman City Councilman Thomas Scott: "The community doesn't want it at that location. I've received phone calls and e-mails objecting to that site. We have only one of these in the city, and it's in South Tampa. "I don't think illegal dumping is being addressed properly in East Tampa. Looking at the entire city, why is East Tampa a favorite spot? Most of the illegal dumping is taking place when this facility will be closed. The hot spot areas for dump ing need better surveillance. The community is opposed and other options n eed to be looked at." -Joseph Robinson, President of the Sulphur Springs Action League: "Residents in this area feel it's a good idea. Our area has been used as a dumping site for a long time, and it would be a great convenience. "I don't thiRk we will have any adverse affects from this project. The close proximity to our area is very appealing to residents who complain about having to go so far to get rid of items." Betty Wiggins, CEO/East Tampa Busin.ess and Civic Association: Not speaking on behalf of the association, I would not be in favor of this. I don't believe putting this in the heart of a community will solve the problem of ill ega l dumping. I would b e aga inst this and we aren't a dumping gro und. "We're still paying the price for dump sites that were located in areas where there are homes. I think we need to speed up the efforts to catch the illegal dumpers, and the penalties should b e stiffer. Ther e has to be consequences. I think it's w e ll intentioned, but ill advised." Inmate Responsible For Prison Ministry Dies Before Receiving Justice BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel StaffWriter Horace Jolly should have never been sentenced to life in prison for murder. He should have never served 33 years for a crime he didn't commit. He should have never had to appeal to the Florida Supreme Court to overturn his case for lack of evi dence, and he should not have died in 1aulkenburg Jail on May 3ot before he had the chance to be heard by a judge. Jolly, 54, died at the Hillsborough County jail after suffering a seizurL on the morning of May 30t Jolly had undergone eye surgery earlier this year and was taking pain medication . However, his health slowly began to fail. Jolly was accused of killing a cab driver in 1973, and was given a life sentence at the age of21. Deacon Edward Jolly, Horace's uncle, says that his nephew had a great opportunity to be free d after serving over three decades behind bars. "He had been writing letters of appeal to Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas County since 2005 to have a hearing and pos sibly have his case overturned. He was rejected countless times, so he appealed to the Florida Supreme Court, and. they allowed him a hearing," said Edward Jolly. Horace Jolly was scheduled to go before Judge Robert Foster in February for his appeal, but Judge Foster HORACE became ill and JOLLY postponed the hearing. Jolly never had the chance to make his appeal before the local judge. "We were all looking forward to him being released and com ing out soon. I know that I had made at least seven trips to Tallahassee while he was going through the process of appealing to the Florida Supreme Court," said Rev. Abe Brown, senior pastor of First Baptist of College Hill. Rev. Brown says Jolly was the reason he started his wellknown Prison Crusade ministry. Jolly played football for Rev. Brown while he was a coach at Blake High School. "After he got arrested I made a pledge to not just teach football to young men, but also teach them how to live," said Rev. Brown. "Horace was working on becoming a paralegal once he was released," said Edward Jolly. "I had sent him the text books, and he had passed two exams that would help him with his career goals This is a bitter situation because he was trul y on his way." ) AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS EMINENT DOMAIN NEW LOCATION 320 W.

To them and perhaps even you, who may have expected or hoped for any angry response to a fellow editorialist's comments, we humbly-beg your pardon. Our anger will not be seen on this printed page. What people suspected would get our goat was a series of columns published in a local daily newspaper. Subject of the series was a Southern Black liberal arts college where the columnist had most recently been a full-fledged professor. Obviously, things had not gone well. According to our_counterpart, his experience was a nightmare to say the l _east! However, when smoke cleared and ink dried, what remained was a salvo against certain Black colleges and universities that became a de facto slap against most all Black colleges -and universities .. even the Black university which was the alma mater, Bethune-Cookman College. Allow us to speak, not in defense, but in factual history. The debt owed Black colleges and universities by the United States of America is one that could never be paid if this nation lived to lie a thousand years old. Yes, our colleague's experience was regrettable. But his written response to his experience was not only reck.lessly resentful, but because it painted. a stereotypical picture, it even now runs the risk of ruining the great work Black institutions of higher education have done through the years. -. No, we're not angry at our counterpart who no doubt, was smacked on the baek repeatedly for what only he could have done,_peefully aDd blindly. But we hope that in time, when his aapr abates, he wiD return to -the Blaek coUege he trashed so aeverely, aDd that he will do what he should have done in the bepnning: WORK TO MAKE mE COLLEGE WHAT IT OUGIIT TO BE!

Genesis 15:13-14 reads: "And he said unto Abraham, know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years. And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge; and afterward shall they come out with great substance. History records our slavery from the time period of around 1555-1619 in America to over some 400 years hence. We are the only people taken from Africa to America, a strange land to serve white people; the judgment is on America for the greatest crime against humanity. The Jews claim they are the chosen peo ple, but this was rebutted in John 8:33: "They answered him, we be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man; how sayest thou: Ye shall be made free?" Jesus goes further in Matthew 5:17, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Let us take this a bit further; Matthew Jesus saith unto them, did ye never read in the scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is mar velous in our eyes?" This ana lyzed means; stone is {people) that the builders rejected. The Founding Fathers of America rejected Black people by declaring them only 3/5 human in 1789 when writing their Constitution. No other people fit this description like Black people who are becom ing the head of this Corner and such being the doing, "marv-elous in His eyes." We must study to find the truth. Sir Barry ..

Team spokesman Greg Bensel said Payton would discuss the matter later, possibly on Monday. Meachem, selected 27th overall in this year's draft out of Tennessee, also missed part of minicamp with a sprained left ankle and was criticized at that time by Payton for being out of shape. Meachem has since lost weight and was able to participate in four of the five minicamp practices. Quarterback Drew Brees said Sunday that he does not yet think he's seen Meachem's full potential, but has high hopes for him. ROBERT MEACHEM "I like him," Brees said.

"I'm looking forward to it," Johnson said Friday, after the first day of minicamp. "It's going to be fun.

The Magic are pursuing former Heat coach Stan Van Gundy to fill the now-vacant position. Earlier on Monday, the team issued a statement saying that Donovan is "con flicted" about his decision to leave .the Florida Gators to coach the Orlando Magic, and he will continue talking with the NBA team about the contract he agreed to last week. It's unclear whether Donovan had signed the five-year, $27.5 million contract with the Magic. NEW YORK-Detroit designated hitter Gary Sheffield and San Diego catcher Josh Bard were sus pended for three games each by the commissioner's office Friday for confrontations with umpires the previous night. Both players filed appeals, meaning th.ey cannot be penalized until after hearings and decisions on the appeals. Sheffield was penalized for "aggressive actions directed at umpire Greg Gibson" at Cleveland, according to Bob Watson, baseball's vice president for discipline. Gibson ejected Sheffield in the fifth inning after the slugger argued a strike call, then broke his bat on a groundout and threw away the piece of wood still in his hands. She ffiel d denied throwing the bat handle at Gibson. "If I want to throw a bat at an umpire, I'll turn around and throw it at him," Sheffield told The Detroit News. "The only thing I had in my hand was a little piece of the handle and I threw it towards our dugout, anyway. "When I threw the bat down, I was letting him know GARY SHEFFIELD I was (angry), but that's it, and then I was going to go to the dugout. Then he said something to me, telling me not to throw the bat like that. "I said, 'Last time I checked, I paid for the bat, I can throw it any way I want: How should I throw it?' At the point, he said, 'You're outta here.' That's when it boiled over. That's when I told him what I think of him as a per son and as an umpire." Sheffield suggested to the Detroit Free Press that he would expose a "conspiracy" .within the game if he is not cleared of wrongdoing."
