CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter In an annual report released by the School District's Office of Supplier Diversity, Hills borough County Public Schools recruited more qual ified vendors, increased bid participation by small busi nesses, and re-invested mil lions of taxpayer dollars with local businesses. Minority Business Manager with the Officer of Supplier Diversity, Henry Ballard, said they have had over an 82% increase over the previ ous year. "This was truly a record breaker. We have busi ness owners who've won more than a million dollars in contracts and some $100,000 and more." "Superintendent MaryEllen Elia said she wants to increase participation even ... more." Bob Morrison, Small Business Consultant with the School District, said 66 com panies earned $100,000 or more each, and they all. certified small businesses, "Not only were there a lot of businesses at the table, they all walked away with something." Ballard said before they HENRY BALLARD initiated this effort, they wanted to make sure the house was in order. "When you start something like this, you have to get it done." "This effort has kept these small businesses in operation. We try to expedite; our services so they can prQ.sper and move on and be sucC'ess ful.

Ballard said all of the businesses are encouraged to return and continue to do business with the School Dis trict. "As we move on we're still trying to expand and stay in side the law The tax dollars are being reinvested in the economy, and that benefits everyone." Morrison said the reason they will continue to expand is because Mrs. Elia has asked Ballard and his team to meet with the school prin cipals. "At the end of fiscal year 2007, school principals spent over $40 million The super intendent has made it a prior ity to work with the principals. This means more opportunities for everyone." In attracting more vendors, that insures greater competi tion to drive down pricing, hicrease accountability for fair distribution of discretionary spending, and increase effi ciency, accordii:tg to the re port.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter A weeklong rain has im proved the levels of the Hills borough River and the reservoir, but not enough to lift the water use ban imposed by the Tampa City Council. i. :; At least, that was the opinion of the majority of Council.: member s Thursday, when .. they voted to let the restric tions stay as they are. In April Council members agreed to institute some of the toughest restrictions ever for residents. Sprinklers are banned under the new rules, arid hand watering is allowed only once a week during overnight hours. Objecting were Councilman John Dingfelder, Councilman Joe Caetano, and .COtincilwoman Linda Saul-Sena. Council members Thomas Scott, Gwen Miller, Mary Mulhern and Charlie Miranda all voted to let the re strictions remain. Councilman Dingfelder was in his saying they should take the advice of their staff in lifting the ban. Mayor Pam Iorio agreed with the majority and felt the restrictions should remain as they are. Appearing before the Coun cil to plead their case were owners oflandscaping and ir rigation businesses. They want the ban lifted to allow watering for new constructi on and landscape projects. The Southwest Florida Man agement District (SWIFT MUD) also hasn't eased on their imposed ban, in accordance with the Council. Under SWIFTMUD guide-THOMAS SCOTT City Council Chairman ..... voted to continue therestrictions.

The .Soul Patrol. c rispus Attucks was indeed, the first to die dur- swered colonial America's call. So, seemingly, the ffi face of the American sentinel -one of the ones who G:'i have always volunteered to keep home safe and inc tegrit)r clean -has always been a Black face. And on w this Memorial Day, we,and all of America are grateful. I can't help but wonder what Jennifer Porter was thinking when she decided to apply for early termination of her pro bation. If nothing else, she should have thought about her timing. As parents, children of par ents, neighbors, friends, and strangers that make up any community, we do forget things. We might forget where we placed our keys, we might forget an appointment, we may not remember where we placed that all-important infonnation, and we might even forget where we put that thingamabob with the direc tions to that thingamajig. We don't forget the things that tear at our hearts and force people to take sides. We don't forget horrific accidents --especially those involving children. Had Ms. Porter been thinking, she would have re alized that barely a month had passed since Ms. Melissa Wilkins relived the memory of the events that took place on March 31, 2004: It was on that day that Ms. Wilkins' whole world blew apart with a single telephone Ca.ll. On that day, everything she had ever believed in was sud denly being questioned. She had to face the fact that four of her children had been struck by a car She then had to accept the fact that two of those children died from the injuries they sustained . She had to somehow accept the fact that the person responsible didn't even think enough about those young lives to stop. As the days un folded, she then had to ab sorb the news that the culprit was none other than an ele mentary school teacher who ffi No, we do not favor war.

In the days following the accident, Ms. Wilkins had to accept an avalanche of in formation that she had no idea was coming her way and was surely not prepared to accept. In the days that followed, Ms. Wilkins had to will her self to do something that no parent wants to ever do -she had to find the strength from somewhere within to bury her children. And a little more than a month ago, Ms. Wilkins re lived it all over again on the anniversary of the accident. It seems that once again, Jennifer Porter only thought of herself.

Local Citizens Comment About Porter's Hearing Request BY llUS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Shortly after 7 p.m., on March 31, 2004, four children were struck by a hit and run driver as they attempted to cross a nDrth Tampa street. Two of the children died as. a result of Branch NAACP said, "The NAACP is opposed to any early termination of the probation of Jennifer Porter." their injuries. .. 't Nearly a month after the accident, 28-year-old M Jennifer Porter, then an elementary teacher in the Hillsborough County School District, surrendered. Following a trial, she was sentenced to 2 years house arrest and 3 years probation. On Thursday," Ms. Porter appeared before a judge requesting early termination of her probation. Her request was denied. Some Hillsborough County residents shared their opinion on whether the early termination should have been approved. Elder Michelle Patty said, "My opinion is the same now as it was when the accident. happened. Jennifer Porter followed the instructions ofher parents. It was a very unfortunate accident, but that is all it was, an accident. If she had not left the scene, she would never have bee!) charged." "Her parents should be serving jail time and I don't understand why they are not. They should be behind bars. They. tampel'ed with eVidence, hid her car; and they should have been sent tojail." "Since this has brought so much hurt to the community JeDDifer Porter should have just rode out the remainder of her probation and not attempted to have it terminated early." Curtis Stokes, President of the Hillsborough County Ms. Twanda E. Bradley said, "I'm appalled that Jennifer is requesting a reduction of her diminutive sentence. What makes her think she should get EXTRA special treatment for ending someone's life! She was in the field (education) of helping children. Instead, she kills them and continues to show how little she cares about children by asking for the reduction." Ms. Chris Dingle said, only received 3 years of probation, was on house arrest 2 years and was given 500 hours of community service. How much leniency does the poor little white girl need? There are two dead kids that won't get leniency or a chance at life and a mother who will always suffer the loss of her children." Carl WIU'I"eel, Sr., said, "Judge Barbar did the right thing. It was a good day for the African American community when the Court in exercising its discretion refused to accept the pro se motion for an early termination of Jennifer Porter's probation. Again, the Court's rejection was a fair and just thing to do Attorney Clinton Paris said, "Justice is more than punishment. Justice also includes repairing the dam age a criminal causes to the community at large. That is why the State Attorney brings charges against criminals on behalf of the people. ."Ms. Porter brought to an end two young lives and deeply injured the community by her crime. The resulting outcry to the initial probation sentence clearly demonstrated the community did not feel justice was served to the actual victims or the community. Therefore, reducing Ms. Porter's punishment by ending her probation early will do nothing to bring justice to the community or the victims. Regardless of what punishment Ms. Porter receives from society, she is forever sentenced to remem bering the lives she ended." .'Howard Harris -said, "Christians should forgive Jennifer Porter (dance teacher) and Michael Vick (football player) and let them get on with their lives." Ms. Tonya Lewi said, "It saddens me to see the judicial system would even consider her early termina tion...l:,bere are many people on probation, and the system says 'no.' I think she needs to serve her full term. Three years of probation for her crime was a slap on the wrist to her. Whe n the crime for anyone e l se would h a v e been prison."

Lawver For f4iaiJ Who Shot Dolla Claims Self-Defense The attorney representing the man accused of shooting and killing Atlanta rapper Dolla in Los Angeles on Monday claims that his client acted in self-defense. "If somebody has a reason able perception that he is in danger of bodily injury or death, he has a right to defend himself," Howard K. Pri('e, lawyer for Aubrey Louis Berry told MTV News. Price said his client shot at Dolla (real name: Roderick Anthony Burton), 21, at a Los Angeles mall on Monday because he feared for his life when he ran into the rapper and his entourage at the Beverly Center. Berry was arrested on Monday at Los Angeles International Airport, where he was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun, and charged on with two counts of.assault with a firearm and count of murder. According to The Los Angeles Times, police allege that Berry, an Atlantabased music promoter, had a fight with Dolla at an Atlanta strip club earlier this month, which precipitated Monday's shooting. However, police disagree with Price's claims of imminent danger, saying no other weapons were recovered from the crime scene and that Burton was not armed. The judge in the case set bail at $5 million (raised from $1 million on DOLIA Wednesday) in the case and Berry faces life .in prison if convicted. Price said he will go to court on Friday in an attempt to get bail reduced for his client, who he portrayed as "a good kid" who did not go looking for trou ble. According to Price, the two men had a fight at the Platinum 21 Adult Entertainment club in Atlanta last month and then happened to run into. each other on Monday in Los Angeles at a P.F. Chang's restaurant at the Beverly Center. Price said that Dolla threatened Berry, who left the restaurant after the incident and walked to the mall's valet area to retrieve his car when he noticed that Dolla and two associates were following him. He looked back and thought he saw Dolla reaching for his waistband, presumably to pull out a weapon, Price said. Berry then opened fire.
