Features c: m (/) c Businessman Takes Bid Dispute To Citv Council Babv Eiected In Accident Dies c... c: z m 1\,) (.) 1\) 0 Businessman and longtime community activist Michael Hadley, owner of Sable One Investigations and Security, will be standing before Tampa City Council Thursday, June 25, asking them not to ratify a contract for unarmed security services. The City's Purchasing Dept. has recommended that Chicago-based Diamond Detective Agency continue the contract. Greg Spearman, Director of Purchasing for the City, says that even though Hadley was the lowest bidder (at $11.94 and hour), there were other qualifications that had to be met. In a letter to Hadley dated June 5, 2009, Darrell Smith, Chief of Staff, explained the reason the second low bidder was recommended for the job. By submitting the proposal, Sable One authorized the City to conduct reference investiga tions as needed Sable One provided security for 3 days during Super Bowl weekend as a subcontractor; the bidder needed a minimum of 5 years in the business as a licensed security guard service company. The MICHAEL HADLEY City did not consider the Super Bowl experience to be similar to long-term guard services at various locations The references contacted said they used Hadley's company primarily on insurance claims, mainly as surveillance. Hadley says he has been doing security and investiga tive service since 1998. He added that the bid invitation did not specify that 5 years of security experience was need ed. He explained, however, that the staff he has pulled togeth er has much more experience: Joe Wilson, a 30-year retired Colonel of the Air Force ; Nate Powell, a 25year Marine veteran ; Marvin Wiley, 30 years in law enforcement (retired Chief of Police of Miami City and El Portal); and Ralph Underwood, 25-year retired Hillsborough County Sheriffs Deputy "I see a pattern like the 2o'07 disparity study done by the City of Tampa," Hadley said. "There is discrimination against small minority prime contradors. I'm asking other small business owners to sup port other small businesses in the community." Editor Gwen Hayes can be reached at (813) 248-19291 or by email at editor@flsentinel.com. According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, an accident Friday night claimed the life of a baby. Troopers said a 2005 Dodge Ram truck driven by Michelin Jones, 42, of Tampa was traveling westbound on I-4 near Plant City when the right rear tire started sep-arating. This caused Jones to lose control of the vehicle and it began to spin and left the paved pm:tion of the roadway and venture into the grass median. A witness reported that the vehicle overturned 3 times before it came -to' rest in the upright position. As the vehicle turned, the right-rear passenger, 7-month-old Indria Jones, was ejected as she sat restrained in a car carrier. Indria and another passenger, 6-year-old Drelin Pittman were transported to a local hospital where Indria was pronounced dead. Pittman sustained minor injuries, and Michelin Jones was not injured. The accident is still being investigated. The family has asked Milton Funeral Home in Dade City to assist them with arrangements.

Jeb Bush and his administration ushered in the Charter School concept with sweeping approval, we warned our readers not to rush to pull their children out of public schools and eDJoll them hi charter schools. Now, that a Stanford University study has confirmed that more than one third of charter schools have failed, educators are at last willing to put on brakes and take a cautious second look at the charter school idea. Sadly, Black and Hispanic children perform poorer in the areas of mathematics and reading than they have performed in public schools. No, not all charter schools perform poorly. In fact, the Stanford report has found 17 percent of charter schools provide students an education superior to that pf. public schools, whi,le 46 percent of charter schools as well as their public school counterparts. So; ,parents who plan to enroll their children or have f already enrolled their children in charter schools must remain vigilant regarding the quality of education their children receive. In fact, parents should check the academic standing of their children's charter schools 'on an annual basis. Praising Your Children After every grading period, the Sentinel features students who made the honor during. For many families it is traditional and we look forward to seeing the same children repeatedly being honored. HowevE!r, for some reason, many parents do not take advantage of the opportunity to publicize their children's accomplishments. We don't necessarily have to praise the child in print, but each child that achieves this status should be praised. When I was growing up, I would often hear the elders say, "Every frog should praise his own pond." For years, I didn't have a clue as to what that meant. But, as I got older, I began to realize that parents are quick to punish, and if pun-ishment is warranted, it should be handed down. However, when a child does well, we should be just as quick to lavish him with praise. As time passes the focus of the future becomes more and more academic. Thirty years ago, a four-year degree was sufficient. Twenty years ago, a master's degree wasn't required, but it would certainly give the person the edge to land a job. And, today, it seems that doctoral candidates get the jobs even when a doctorate degree is not required. The fact of the matter is education is the key to the future and we need to reenforce this fact with our children every chance we get. Now I'm sure that there are those who feel that the children are doing what they are "s upposed" to do. That very well may be true, however, everyone likes to know that what he or she does is appreciated As adults, we do what we are supposed" to do on the job to earn a paycheck. But, it still makes you feel good when your boss tells you that you are doing a good job. As adults, we want to continue to receive those compliments so we try to keep up our level of output. We want to know that our efforts are noticed. Our children are in the training stages to become tomorrow's leaders. They need to know today that someone is taking notice of the work that they are doing. Praise your own pond! z i= w ..J ..J :::;:) Also, when choosing a charter school, parents should' compare the academic.success in as many .. Nei-ther A DaddV Or A Man charter schools as possible.

This is what we read from a major news article published last week. "High school performance slipped this year in Hillsborough County with a magority of schools dropping a grade or more in the state rating system ... Botg HilJsborough and Freedom high schools dropped to a 'C' froht an 'A,' with 10 schools earning 'D' grades .. But despite those troubles, the district earned its second overall 'A' grade with 57 percent of schools earning that designation based on on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT." WHAT?! No doubt, congratulations are in order, but to whom and for what are persistent questions. Continues last week's news clip, "For the first time since 2006, no Hills. Schools earned a failing grade, putting the district on track to potentially earn special privileges from the state." Congratulations! However, "as in previous years, the district failed to make adequate yearly progress under. the federal No Child Left Behind law, which requires continuous gains in minority low-income and special-needs groups." Speaking of minority and low income special needs, what has become of embattled Middleton High School? o::t We are informed, it passed, but not by much. It went up w 5 points, but still received a "D." Its principal said he (!) was "very pleased," although he added, "We still have improvements to make." ging about how many children they have sired. They brag about it knowing good and well that they are neither a daddy nor a man. They brag knowing that they contribute absolutely noth ing to the child's well being or to raising the child. Let the record reflect that just because you impregnate a female, it does not in itself make you a man or a daddy. Far too many males get a woman pregnant and then make themselves extremely scarce in the lives of both the woman and the child. You can only call yourself a daddy if you are actively involved in the raising, the caring for, the providing for, and the loving of that child. I know of so many males who have absolutely nothing to do with their' children. But as They come forward looking for a pat on the back or a contribution knowing full well that they had nothing to do with the child's success Children, especially male children, need a father in their lives. They need a daddy who can set a good example, show them the path of success, comfort them in their time of need and above all, be a good and effective role model. Guys, and I call because I can't call you a daddy or a inan, you can't leave all the responsibility of raising and caring for your children to the mother Boys don't always listen to their mothers. That i'!i because too often boys feel that their mother, because But where is daddy? The child doesn't know. In fact, so many children grow up not knowing who their male sire is. We often talk about the number of Black males that are under the control of the penal system. A lot of this is be.c'ii-use there is no in the houset q bffom Males, get involved in your children's lives. It makes no d)freienc'e relationship with the 111oth:er is, be a contributing-and posi tive role model for your children. Children need both parents. Usually, the missing parent i s the male. This has to change in order. to reinvent tire-Hiack familieS. As for the major media, they have begun pronouncing public schools can only succeed with cooperation of both parents as well as students. We don't disagree. But once again, FCAT escapes accusation. Perhaps, someday, someone will recognize children attend school not simply to pass tests, but to learn life-

That's what Erika Hayes has accomplished and on June 29th, she along with her mother, Tonya Wideman and father, Phillip Hayes, will meet with MaryEllen Elia, School Dis trict Superintendent. "I am very proud of my daughter and <,ill of the things she's achieved during her high school career. Now that's she's graduated, I feel she's well pre pared for that next step in her life." Ms. Wideman, who has been very active in her South Tampa community, said it's hard to believe that anyone could never miss a day from school in their entire life. "The School District only recognizes kindergarten through graduation and not pre-kindergarten. So really, she's had perfect attendance for 14 years." Ms. Wideman said be cause she raised her daughter within the confines of the Rembrandt Apartments, some ERIKA HAYES felt she would wind up as an other statistic. "As a single mother, I could not do everything for her. I had to be confident that she could work and maintain, and she did. She's had the support of a lot of people along the way, and they all deserve a debt of gratitude from me and Erika." Erika graduated from Robinson High School with a GPA of 5-4 and will attend Florida A&M University to study pharmacy. Reporter Leon B.

Real estate agent Maureen Flavin said Wednesday that Owens has agreed to lease a 4,soosquare-foot newly built home in an upscale commu nity in Orchard Park, not far from Ralph Wilson Stadium. The search took several months in part because the type of large homes Owens was interested in usually aren't on the rental market, Flavin said. The search also made headlines after Owens said he was turned down from viewing one home because the owners didn't want any drama in their neighborhood. Owens was intent on rent ing rather than buying after signing a one-year, $6.5 mil lion contract with Buffalo in early March shortly after he was released by the Dallas TERRELL OWENS Cowboys He already owns homes in Atlanta, Dallas, Miami and New Jersey. Owens spent the past two months looking at homes across the Buffalo region.
