BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer Nearly 100 people attended a meeting Tuesday to help determine the future of the Centro Espanol de West Tampa building, located at 2306 N. Howard Avenue. Many of the attendees believed the building should be put to good use, and not simply preserved or "mothballed." Jeanette LaRussaFenton, manager of Drew Park and West Tampa Redevelopment, informed potential building occupants that the building needs about $375,000 in repairs, and has annual operating expenses of about $136,000. She also out lined an ideal situation for the J \ The Centro Espanol de West Tampa building, at 2306 N. Howard Avenue, was built in 1912, and added to the National Register of Historical Places in July of 1974. historical building. "We definitely need to have a plan to sustain the building, one .that won't put any financial weight on the City of Tampa," said LaRussaFenton. "Everyone knows of the financial cutbacks taking place within the local government. So the city can't take the financial weight of main taining the building." Mark Huey. the city's Economic Development Administrator. said all sug gestions would be processed. The city is also considering beginning a RFP (Request For Proposals) process, as was done with nearby Fort Homer Hesterly Armory. The building .has just over 30,000 square feet, and could be used for multiple purposes. "There is no place in West Tampa to see a movie, hear a lecture, see art or a concert It's time to create a cultural center for West Tampa," said Maura Barrios, member of the West Tampa Council on Arts, Culture and History Probably the most well received suggestion came from Eric Holland, owner of Eve's Catering. The owner suggested creating a culi'nary school for young adults and ex-offenders. As part of his plan, the Centro Espanol building would serve as a restaurant on Sundays with his students as the chefs. "I'm hoping this opportunity arises because I think that we could do a lot of good in the community, and be someplace where people can come and have great meals on Sundays," said Holland. "We have a detailed plan in place, we just need the opportunity.". Michelle B. Patty {813) 495-3702 1-866-352-4200

We are referring to the time-honored, infamous game of divide-and-conquer. At stake is the friendship and trust of two individuals who may well become the president and vice president of the United States. The major news media has already begun to pick apart any possibility -of a between Clinton and Obama. Why? The reason is obvious. As enemies, the' last thing either of them would want would be, to join forces and campaign together. Ingenious? It's absolutely elementary! Furthermore, such strategy is almost guaranteed to split American voters right down the middle while neutralizing any. possibility ofinsightful observation. It has worked, before. Why not now? we urge Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama not to fall for false pretense, just as we urge American voters ilot to be swayed by media that corrupts aS it informs.

Here this week, the Tampa City Council is entertaining a resolution by the Department of Justice into the police shooting death of 19-year-old Martin Chambers. That Black youth was shot in the back while fleeing from police officer J. L. Calvert on the evening of June u, 1967 This Civil Rights Cold Case begs for resolution Evidently, Congress has been led to believe that there is a rela tionship between lack of jus tice and the lack of persecu tion in the Chambers case, and others similarly situated. Tampa City Council must not left to bear this local cross alone. The executive leadership of the mayor's office must come full-circle and fully committed to seeing this investigated and processed to a successful con clusion.

But as the demise of the old neighborhood affectionately known as The Dirt comes closer to reality, I've suddenly begun to experience the pangs of nostalgia. The feeling is strange for me because I've never been the one to become sentimental about anything. Yet, when I think about "CPV" being bull dozed, I can't help but feel as though a lot of my childhood memories are being crushed along with it After all, it was inside the Armwood Court, the first section designated for demolition, where I experienced my first kiss, my first fight, m y first birthday party and m y introduction to the act of hunching When I reflect on the time I spent in that a re a as a child, images of free lunches in the summer, dances at Kid Mason and playing kickball under the courtyard lights, are as vivid as any memory I've ever had.

It is a stadium unlike any other stadium in the world The team plays on natural grass. No dome stadium has natural grass but this one.

r--0 0 N sTATE I NATIONAL 4. -.: : ,..: N ::I .., <:( FAMU President Addresses One Of School's Financial Troubles 0 c:: LL. Florida A&M University's new president says he and his staff I1ave found the cause of one of the school's most s ignificant financial problems. Teresa Hardee, the scho ol's interim vice-president for Fiscal Affairs, says there are five reasons why FAMU's pay roll system has caused prob lems. Those reasons include: a Jack of a central hiring authority, lack of knowledge about the payroll process, late submis sion of personnel documents an ineffective reporting struc ture and inefficient processes. Florida' s only historically Black state university is cur rently serving a six-month probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) for their finan cial problems. "I promised early on in my 0 administration that fiscal 0: integrity will be one of my LL highest priorities and I was 0 very serious about it," said :i FAMU President James Ammons. "We believe, that in C my 12. working day.s as presi'cn dent, we have found the root W causes and have a plan that I endors e to resolve > the :a: w President Ammons says > the plan to resolve FAMU's w c w :I: U) DR. JAMES AMMONS President, Florida A&M University payroll problem will begin with providing training on the per sonnel payroll process, working with a new program to speed up payroll completion and reducing the employee payroll procedure to four steps instead of nine. The plan also includes taking action, and possibly terminating, anyone who has avoided the school's normal hiring process. "We're going to educate our campus about new processes, and begin to hold employees accountable for not following procedures," said Dr. Ammons. "Ultimately, if these continue, we must look at additional changes in staff." :::i m ::I 11. 505 East Jackson St. Suite #303 z ffi _, _, ;:) m ...:. w z w U) c:C c a: 0 _, LL.

Sink took the action on behalf of Palin Bay resident Minouche Noel, who was paralyzed after receiving treat ment at a state-run .clinic when she was an infant in 1989. A jury awarded her the $8.s-mil lion. Noel and her Haitian immigrant parents then waited seven years for the Legislature to finally pass a bill ordering payment-from the state. But the money is now at the center of a dispute between lawmakers and Noel's attor ney, Sheldon Schlesinger, who wants more money in fees and expenses than lawmakers stipulated in the bill they passed in May. Schlesinger has asked a state court to rule that he is entitled to up to $677,000 more than -the $1-million authorized by lawmakers. The longtime, personal injury lawyer said he had a pre-existing contract with the Noel family that entitled him to 25 percent of the total amount of the claiins bill. Schlesinger has placed a lien on the money, which pre vents the Noels from getting it, at least for now A hearing on Schlesinger's lien is scheduled for Monday before Broward Circuit Judge Leroy Mqe in Fort Lauderdale. ===FYI=== Parents' Meeting ForMHS Cheerleader Tryouts There will be a parent meet ing held on Friday, August 3, 2007, at Middleton High School at 6:30 pm in the audit_orium for all young interested in trying out for the 2007-2008 Middleton varsity and JV Cheerleading Squad.

Clinton Only Candidate To Accept Group's Invite CHARLES STEELE And HILLARY CLINTON ATLANTA --Charles Steele, the president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), says only one presidential candidate has agreed to the group celebrate its sot_ anniversary next month in Atlanta. Steele told USA TODAY'S ediforial board that all candidates in both parties were invited two months ago to attend the group's convention, Aug. 3-8. So far, only Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, has accepted. "It's ve r y disturbing," Steele said. "We can't even get the candidates to come to our convention. That says a lot. People don t care." The SCLC was founded by Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., and played a pivotal role in win ning Civil Rights for Blacks in the 1960s The group fell on har d times in recent years and was deep in debt when Steele took over in November 2004. He says he ahs revived the organization by enlisting corporate support to "internationalize and institutionalize SCLC's principles of non-vio lent action.

Barack Obama of Illlinois: Are you black enough? "You know, when I'm catching a cab in Manhattan ... I'm giving my credentials," he replied. To Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York: Are you feminine enough? "I couldn't run as anything ot-her t .han a woman," she said. Her answer drew a challenge from former Sen.

Church RELIGIOUS ., :c 0 : BY REV. RICKY WIGGS: i Your financ es are going to be in captivity for a while, your c... marriage is going to be rocky C: for a while and your job situa-tion is going to be stressful for I\) a while; who wants to hear that message? He cautions them to be care-o -...1 ful to whom they listen to while ,, .: :: :-Trust Him they are in captivity (vs. 8-10). God warns them that the prophets and diviners will deceive them. In fact, do not even trust your own dreams. Jeremiah's letter to the people (Jeremiah 29:1-14) is one that is perhaps received with mixed emotions. Considering their current situ ation this is not a message they want to hear, but it is one that has good news and assurance When serving God, He often times will put you in situations that will require you to trust Him in times that do not make sense. You are expecting God to do one thing, but He decides to do another. What He is saying and doing does not make sense, but you are expected to trust Him. This is the situation of Israel in this week's lesson. They are in a strange situation and they must trust the word of God. The Babylonians have taken them captive back to Babylon. They are now strangers in a foreign land and must dwell among their capturers. The expected hope from the people was that God would deliver them and allow them to return home. However, God had a different plan to. plant gardens. Everyone knows that greens, cabbage, and onions do not grow overnight God really has plans for them to be there because they are also encouraged to get married and have children. The time has been extended; they now have time to build houses, plant gardens, get married, have children, and let them do the same thing. Can't you read their minds? We are not plan ning on staying here. That is how life is today, many people have found themselves taken captive and they must live in a strange and unfamiliar land. You think that when you call on God He will answer by telling you that help is on the way and you will be delivered by the weekend. But you do not expect to hear God say that I allowed you to be taken captive and you are going to be there for a while When God has you in a place, listen to Him and only Him. Sometimes people will want to speak immediate deliverance to you, but that is not God s will and plan. God says in verse 10 that He .would visit them after seventy years. It is a long time to be somewhere you don't want to be. It is uncomfortable to be in captivity. The blessing of it all is: you are where God wants you to be and He will come to deliver you. God says while you are here for a time, you will not be here forever. The -trust factor comes when you can be in an uncom fortable situation and trust God anyway. God knows His thoughts for you. His thoughts are for your good and not for evil. No matter what happens in life or regardless the path of the road, trust God.

The juice-bar tally: People who drink fruit and vegetable juices more than three times a week have a 76% lower risk of developing Alzheimer's. Another study shows it'll take 500 mil ligrams of caffeine a day (a whop ping 5 cups of coffee) to give you the benefit. So, you may be wired but the 5 cups could help lower the risk of Alzheimer's.

II!! Since running my "3 Days Cash For Your Home" ad there have been reports of other copy-cat real estate investors trying to manipulate people with empty offers of quick cash and fast closings. There are few legitimate Tampa companies that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. 6efore 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.
