The menu offers a wide array of sides to accompany the bar becue that is coated in a special seasoning and smoked rather than grilled for tenderness. He also uses only oak wood for his special slow cooked recipes : While the primary function of the location is to serve food, the Reynolds ha-.;e plans that in clude using ouilding as a meeting site ana for entertain ment purposes as well.

He was name d a MacArthur Fellow in 1981; was listed in Time magazine among its "25 Most Influential Americans;" he was appointed as the Alphonse Fl etcher, Jr., University Professor at Harvard University. In January 2008, he co-founded The Root, an African American website, and he currently chairs the non-profit Fletcher Foundatiou, which supports civil rights and environmental education. It would seem nowhere on earth could Henry Louis Gates, Jr. go where he would not be known. But there is one place where his recognition seems to have failed him: his front door. Of all the things we told you about Dr. Henry Y,uis Gates, Jr., the one thing we forgot to tell you is, Dr. Gates is Black. We can't help, but wonder if his skin color led to his recent detention at his OWn residence by police, who were reportedly tipped off that "two Black males" were acting suspicious in an otherwise well-heeled neighborhood. The police gave chase. Gates was nabbed, although he immediately established his identity. Just the same, the world-laureate was slapped with a disorderly conduct citation for demanding a police officer's identity. When asked why he thought he'd been detained, Dr. Gates responded, "Why, because I'm a Black man in America." In one sentence, all of his honors and achievements fell by the wayside, and he was left with a brutal truth that many of us who are Black know only too well. Yes, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was insulted. Most likely, he will never be the same. We-Support local v--odor Preference We had a sense of"deja vous" when we heard several local governments were. considering drafting policies that will give local and regional businesses preferences over out-of-area or out-of-state.bilsinesses. More than ten years ago, local minority a ri d a few other businesses proposed the adoption of similar policies by the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County. We guess hard economic times have softened harder views of some government officials since that time. Indeed, Miami-Dade area businesses have enjoyed local vendor preference since the early 1990's without negative results. In competitive bidding, local vendors often lose out to larger out-of-state firms because of pricing or the scoring process. For the time being, we applaud and support local governments for considering the possibility of enacting local vendor preference as a means of stabilizing our local economy. Once the economy begins to rebound, local vendor preference policies can be reconsidered, or made permanent. But at least our local vendors will have been given a chance to show, at last, what they can do.

The purpose of the school is to educate the children. Schools must have qualified and dedicated faculties and staff and they must have the latest technology and equip ment. Students have to come to school ready to learn. They must be disciplined, attentive, have a desire to learn and obey rules and regulations of the school. Students have a responsibility to participate in their educational pursuit. Parents must be a part of the educational process.

I I wonder how many of you like me, spent hun dreds of hours reading books and watching movies and television stories about Robin Hood, The Three Mus keteers or The Count of Monte Cristo, as a teenager. Even more so, I wonder if you, like me, didn i leafri the French author of these fa vorite books, Alexandre Dumas, was Black. Dumas, a great adventure novelist, was the grandson of a French nobleman and Napoleonic army general, Marquis Alexandre -Antoine Davy de Ia Pailleterie who served in Saint Dominique (now Haiti) and an Afro Caribbean woman by the name of Marie-Cesette Dumas. Since today would have been Dumas (Pere's) birthday, what better way to celebrate it than to tell you his life story! Dumas was born in the vil lage of Villiers-Cotterets, northeast of Paris, France, to Thomas-Alexandre Dumas and Marie-Louise Elizabeth Labouret. His father died when Dumas was barely four years old but his mother kept his father's memory alive by telling Dumas stories 1bout his father s brave mili tary acts during the glory years of I of_Erance,. Even tho u gh Iiu.irias grew ui> hi poverty, his mother kept him supplied with books, which he read v ora ciou sly. Reportedly, stories of his father's war ad ventures fueled Dumas' imag ination to write adventure novels such as The Count of Monte Cristo and others. Dumas' literary career began when he s tarted writing articles for magazines and plays for the theater. Dumas' plays were so popular that they earned him public acclaim and wealth Also, as a well-con nected politician and French Revolutionary, Dumas held several positions with one of France s rulers, King Louis Philippe in the 183o 's. In the late 183o s Dumas began to write ,i 10vels and his fame began to interna tionally Several of Dumas' novels were collaborations with friends an (f with his fenc ing teacher, _.Augustine Grisier. Even mar ried Ferrand, he M aintained "nu merous liaism;ls / t fathering at least fou r illegitf ate children; one of thos : t was a son Alexandre (fils) who would a successful novelist and like his father. Repoct"edl y Dumas .,;,-,.f.;lt liked to live with lavish parties and bea,iix_iful women. After the ove rtii' o w of King in 1851, Dumas fled to Belgium, then Russia and fina lly settled in Italy, continu ing j:o write and to gain international popularity Dumas returned to Paris in 1864 where he died at the C) age of 68 in 1870 m Happy Birthday, Alexandre 'f1 Dumas (Pere)!'

Johnson said in the past two months, the owner said he was ready to sell and entered into an agreement with the owner to purchase the property. "After the property was pur chased, it was our plan to put in a process where the com munity will decide its use. We were going to accomplish that by putting out an Request For Purchase (RFP)." City Council Chairman, Thomas Scott asked Johnson whether or not the CRA Advisory Committee had any involvement in the acqui sition of property. "My concern is we're seeing a repeated process We're being asked to approve some thing that hasn't gone before the CAC. We need to know what they think. I have a con cern that process was not car ried out." Councilman Scott said he agrees the property needs to Blake Class 111965 The Howard W.

"I'm not comfortable approving this at this time. I have a right to vote against this, because the CAC was not made a part of the process." Councilwoman Linda Saul-Sena agreed and added, "there was a meeting when this information could have been shared, and that didn't happen." City of Tampa CRA Director, Mark Huey, said there is a process problem here and he agreed and S;iid he accepts full accountability for the problem. "The greater issue is the absence of the CAC being involved in the decision making process," said Councilman Scott." Councilman Scott made a motion that this issue be put on their Aug\lst 4th agenda so as to give the CAC an oppor tunity to review the purchase. East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership Chairperson, Evangeline Best, said the East Tampa Strategic Plan has not been approved. "That property can' t be in line with that, because it has n't been approved. We have no plans for that area. There is a process that has to be followed. Our major concern was that the process wasn't honorec\{If funds are to be distributed for anything, the CAC made a part of all discus : sions." Ms. Gladys Jackson, President1 of the Rainbow Heights Neig nborhood Watch THOMAS SCOTT City Council Chah:man Group said they would like to see the property used as a recreational site for the chil dren. "But, we were not involved in the process to purchase the property, so it looks like someone .else had already decided what was going to be done with the propertj. Ms. Best said, Out of pro fessional courtesy, we should have known about this. Moving funds and not alerting us is not appropriate. As rep resentatives for the communi ty, we need to know what the TIF dollars are being spent on before they're spent. "I feel it was trying to be rushed through intentionally to meet the August 14th clos ing date." Ms. Jackson said over the past 6 years, they have asked for a small park on that cor ner "The city already owns the lots behind the club. If they purchase the building, it would make a nice park with a small recreation building on it for our children. We already have volunteers ready to work with the kids. "We were not told the city was interested in buying the building. We were not invited to any discussions about the purchase of the building. Whatever they decide will impact the commu nity. We don't houses. We need sometliing to take our young people off the streets. It's been done in other areas, and it can be done here."

"The law has spoken and spoken severely," Irvin said. "If the commissioner says he's not allowed back in, then how is that fair?" To emphasize his point, Irvin compared the NFL's indefini te suspensions ofVick and Browns receiver Donte' Stallworth. While Vick was punished for nearly two years, Stallworth served 24 days of a 30-day jail sentence for pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter. Irvin understands Stallworth's plight because something similar happened to him. In 1996, Irvin plead ed no contest to drug charges and avoided any jail time, but was still suspended for five games Vick must convince NFL commissioner Roger Goodell of his readiness to return. Irvin said there should be a series of well-p ublicized meetings and, if all goes well, the suspension should be lifted a few weeks before the regular season op ens.

TAMEKA CAMPBELL National Obama: Health Care Reform Means Changes In Treatment For The Bener WASHINGTON President Obama said Wednesday he was unable to guarantee that health care reform won't change how Americans get medical treat ment but he said any changes would be necessary and posi tive President Obama is urfing Congress to move quickly to pass comprehensive health care reform. In a nationally televised news conference dominated by the health care issue, Obama delivered lengthy statements in response to Republican attacks on proposals he favors. He also attempted to ease the concerns of people left confused by the fierce debate Obama: PRES. BARACK OBAMA in Washington. He repeatedly emphasized that the spiraling costs of the current system would bankrupt the nation while denying coverage to millions -more Americans. Asked directly if he could guarantee that an overhauled health care system won't change how people receive treatment, Obama said no. "The whole point of this is to try to encourage what works," Obama said, addressing con cerns that reform would take away the ability of to chooll'limtilleir doctors and "The is already k Jmmc f h d rna mg some o t ese eci-sions, bobama said. "Insurance companies are making some of these deci sions." The reform proposals he backs would have experts make decisions based on the best medical treatment, not accountants attempting to save money or doctors prescribing treatments that bring the highest fees, Obama said. Police Who Arrested Professor 'Acted StupidiV' HENRY L. GATES, JR And PRES. BARACK OBAMA President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, "acted stupid ly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man's home. Harvard University profes sor Henry Louis Gates Jr. talks Wednesday about his ordeal with Cambridge police. "I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played," Obama said Wednesday night while tak ing questions after a White House news conference Cambridge authorities dropped disorderly conduct charges against Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Tuesday. Obama defended Gates on Wednesday night, while admitting that he may be "a little biased," because Gates is a friend. "But I think it's fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 ... that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately." The incident, Obama said, shows "how race remains a factor in this society." The mayor of Campridge said she is going to meet with the city's police chiefto make sure the scenario that caused Gates' arrest does not hap pen again. Gates said Simmons called him to apologize. He told CNN on Wednesday that although charges had been dropped, he will keep the issue alive. Gates said he'd be prepared to forgive the arresting officer "if he told the truth" about what the director of Harvard's W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research said were "fabrications" in the police report. The officer, Sgt. James Crowley, told CNN affiliate WCVB earlier Wednesday that he will not apologize. Six Shot, wounded In Drive-Bv It Texas Southern HOUSTON ....:._A drive-by shooting at a community rally on the Texas Southern University campus Wednesday night left six people wounded, a school spokeswoman said. Police believe the incident was gang-related One male student was among the six people who were shot and treated for serious, but non-life threatening injuries, TSU spokeswoman Eva Pickens said. Witnesses told police that one car drove by and opened fire on the parking lot where a popular Houston rapper was promoting community service and voter registration, Pickens said.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Michael Hadley, owner of Sable One Investigations and Security, went before the Tampa City Council last Thursday Hadley was there to hear the Council's final decision on an appeal he filed on being denied a contract that he was the lowest bidder on. With the exception of Council Chairman Thomas Scott, Councilman Joe Caetano, and Councilwoman Gwen Miller, the remaining members voted to deny Hadley's appeal. One Council member, Charlie Miranda:, was very animated in giving his reason for denying the appeal, and Hadley took exception to what Miranda had to say. "First of all, Councilman Miranda needs to get his facts straight. He said I didn't have an A license, and I do. He said I didn't have the necessary experience, and I do. "I interpreted the qualifi cation necessary for the contra.rt the way they were given, submitted the lowest bid, and was still denied the MICHAEL HADLEY contract." Hadley said his company wanted to follow the standard procedure and weren't asking for anyone to give them a thing. "Councilman John Dingfelder said it wouldn't be right to take it away from one company and then give it to another,' and he's right. That's not what we were ask ing for "We just wanted equal treatment, and instead we found out the system as it stands now is not fair." Council Chair Scott asked for a mediation procedure to be put in place for any contract disputes in th,e future. I think Mr. Scott has the ri ght id ea. I think these m at t e rs should be r eviewed by a committee instead of an individual. I know we're than gualified to handle anything we bid for. "All we asked for was an impartial mediation proce-... dure, and we were denied that. In my opm10n, Councilman Miranda slandered us and used information that was opinionated and not accurate." Hadley said they never got the chance to state their case and prove they were qualified. "The playing field kept changing every time we returned with what they asked us for. "As far as Council members Scott, Miller and Caetano are concerned, it's important to have the representation in place that understands. I hate to make this racial, but that's exactly what it was. I think this was a blatant disregard for fairness in the process. By no means is this over. Subscribe Today! GIBBS & PARNELL, PA ATTORNEYS AT LAW A. P GIBBS, ESQ. MATIHEW KOCHEVAR ESQ. THOMAS E.

Lovett, Chairman Board Of tence when God was estab lishing His people, He made provisions for them to be delivered from the po wer an<;} effects of debt. He established a time frame for how long a person could be in debt and when they were to be delivered. In this week's lesson in Leviticus 25:8-21, 23, 24, God lays out the plan for debt relief The fiftieth year shall be called a year of jubilee (vs. 10). It was in this year that all people were to be released from all of their debts and if they were in bondage because of debt they were to be released. God is a God of freedom. He desires for His people to be free from anything that bounds you and keeps you from living the life of freedom and redemption. God includes forgiveness of debt among one another. One of the biggest problems in the community of faith is how individuals treat each other. God says to them that if they do business between one another do not take advan tage of each other (vs. 14, 17). It i s natural for them to buy and sell from each other, but so is the tendency to take advantage of each other. When Christians do busi ness with one another, they should not expect goods and services to be free, nor should the price be inflated. God created a system that made it possible for peopl e to own their own land Land in their time was a valuab l e commodity It was important for families to maintain prop erty. Even today, families must make sure they main tain a family sense of identity through property ownership In a ll things pertaining to living a life pleasing to God there must be faith and trust. In business, people must exhibit faith a nd trust in God in all People must do God says, keep His judgments and do th em (vs. 18). t If people learned to trust and obey God in business, they would discover that He would give them more busi ness. In practicing jubilee in business, God made sure that there was more than enough to cover any loss that a person would encounter as a result of forgiving debt. God made provisions for them in the sixth year that would 1 ast them for the next three during the season of jubilee (vv. 21). When God sees that you have an obedient spirit and a willing ness to forgive others debt, He will make sure you have enough. Sometimes the best way to get more from God is by giv ing more to others. If you help someone be delivered from bondage, God will reward you. Some of the most blessed and thriving businesses are those who are willing to help others and not take advantage of people. God intends for all to have an opportunity to be free from debt. During that process pf being redeemed from debt the expectation is not to go out and make new debt. Don't let debt hold you down, God has given you a fresh start.

One thing I have learned out here In these streets is to always use condoms no matter what. I always tell my tricks "no glove, no love", because I know I can catch HIV! I didn't always have the money to buy them. But I met these outreach workers 3 weeks ago and they sup plied me with condoms and lube!

Entertainment Sonv Bids S50M For Jackson Rehearsal Film LOS ANGELE S --Sony Corp.'s movie studio h as bid $so million to acquire the worldwide distribution rights to a film based on rehearsal footage for Michael Jackson's "This Is It" c ome back concert series The bid came after severed studios, including Paramount, Uni versal and 20th. Century Fox, were shown footage starting early last week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the bidding had not been completed. None of the studios would comment on the record. The winning studio would produce the film with Jackson's concert promoter, AEG Live, and his estate. It would go a long way to help ing AEG Live recoup some of the $30 million to $32 mil lion it spent producing the concert before Jackson died June 2S. The bidding was reported earlier by the Los Angeles Times and industry blogger Nikki Finke. Sony Pictures has a leg up on other bidders because Sony Music distributes Jackson's music and is in a so-so partnership with his MICHAEL JACKSON estate in Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Sony's bid is on par with the cost of making a mid-range budget movie, and is offset by the fact that the Sony group of companies would benefit from the music licensing rights attached to the film. There is also massive inter. est in Jackson material worldwide. An estimated 31 million viewers in the U.S. alone watched the Jackson memorial service live earlier this month,. according to Nielsen Media Research. That's just shy of the 33 million U.S. viewers who watched Princess Diana's funeral. Jav-z Denies Blackballing ChrisBro-From an Anls JAY-Zvs. CHRIS BROWN Jay-Z says he didn't dis The Game, but he hasn't exactly been losing sleep over the former G-Unit rapper taking his words in the Blueprint 3 intro as a insult. "If that's a dis, then wear that," Jay told radio person ality Tim Westwood while in Europe promoting the album. "Tell groupie to get over it." Westwood also asked Jay his thoughts on the video taped apology Chris Brown released on Monday. "We're all flawed human beings. All a person can do is apologize," Jay said "That's it, what can we say? You know everyone should be allowed to make mistakes. It happens." Hov also denied that he had a hand in blackballing Chris Brown from perform ing at the recent BET Awards during a tribute to Michael Jackson. The big rumor was that Jay told BET that nei ther he nor Beyonce would perform at the June award show if Brown was allowed to take the stage. BET and a source close to Brown discounted the rumor to MTV News in the wake of the show. "That's the silliest rumor I ever heard," Jay told Westwood. "You know me, right? I was sitting back and watching all them suckas [comment]. You don't com ment on rumors. I was sitting back watching them. 'Look at them. That's so silly.' First, let me categorically deny that. If I }.lave a problem with Chris Brown, I got a problem with Chris Brown. I don't agree with what he did and that's that." Hov said for him to impose his will on BET would have been a sucka move and for people to come out and com ment on the rumor was also a suckamove. "This one was funny," he said of the rumor. "I was sit ting back like, 'Look at them, they all stupid.' I didn't do it, I wouldn't do it. That's not how I deal with my problems, through using BET or record companies." It's no secret Jay and Rihanna are close. The singer and Kanye West appear on the next single from The Blueprint 3, "Run This Town." TVIerPerrv Treats PhiiiV Kids To Disnev World 1YLERPERRY PHILADELPHIA --Tyler Perry is paying for 6s child ren from a Philadelphia day camp to go to Walt Disney World after reading about allegations that a suburban swim club had shunned them because of racism. The Black and Hispanic children who attend the day camp run by Creative Steps Inc. cheered Monday when they learned about the actor's gift. Creative Steps director Alethea Wright says she's thrilled about the offer, espe cially because Perry "comes from humble beginnings" like the children in her camp. The Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley has maintained that refunding the camp's swimming fee was not about race but rather a safety issue, in part because many children couldn't swim. Perry is best known for his signature character Madea, a big-hearted but foul-tem pered grandmother. 50 cant Would Welcome Showdown WlthJav-z 50 CENT vs. JAY-Z Sorry, hip-hop fans -it doesn't look like the Jay-Z/ 50 Cent chart showdown will be happening after all. The rappers won't go head-to-head when The Blueprint 3 and Before I Self Destruct debut in September. Jay has settled on September 11, while 50 Cent told MTV News last week that his album is coming on the last Tuesday of the month. 50 said that if by any chance he and Jay did drop on the same day, he would welcome the challenge. 50 came out on September 11 a couple of years ago, releasing Curtis at the same time Kanye West's Graduation hit stores. Graduation sold more the first week, but Curtis sold well too. 'TI c Jackson's Father Suggests Foul Plav In Son's Death c.. c: !< N _lito N g

Jackson's Mother -. Mav Chall.enue Will Executors KATHERINE And MICHAEL JACKSON LOS ANGELES -Michael Jackson's mother asked for.a ;jp<;lge's ruli.qg f'riday op whether she can challenge th. e authority of two men named in her son's wilh as executors of his estate without being disinherited. The filing does n ot formal ly challenge the appointment of attorney .John Branca and music executive John as executors of Michael Jackson's estate. .slated for auction, but her authority expired and was .given to Branca and McClain. She had sought to control Jackson's estate, but that was before the singer's 2002 will was filed in Los Angeles. It names Branca and McClain as Jackson's choice for coexecutors of the will, and states his estate should be placed in a private trust. Jackson's trust included a "no contest" .clause that calls for anyone who chal lenges the will to be disinherited. .I<;atherine her children and m miamed cha r1 !,. ities are beneficiaries of the estate. The filing states. thaL Katherine attorneys continue to confer with attorneys for McClain and Branca and no final decisions have been made. But a favorable ruling could pave the way for 79-year-old Katherine Jackson to seek control .of her son's estate, which has an estimated value of more than $500 million "' A judge granted her temW porary control over roughly C!J 2,000 items taken from her son's Neverland Ranch and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff will consider how to handle the filing at a hearing on Aug 3. Lingering issues about Jackson's estate could be decided then and the .hearing will also focus on whether Katherine Jackson will be allowed to keep custody of her son' s children, who range in ages from 7 to 12. Jackson's Parents To Decide On His Burial JOE And KATHERINE JACKSON LOS ANGELES Authority over how and where Michael Jackson's remains are buried is left in the hands of his parents Joe and Katherine Jackson, accord in g to California code. If a person didn't leave instructions and means to provide for their own burial, there is a clear pecking o rder of who has the right to con trol disposition of rema ins and make arrangements, according to California Health and Safety Code Section 7100. Control goes first to the power of attorney for health care (Jackson doesn' t appear to have one) then to a surviving competent spouse, thim to a competent adult child, and if none of those options exist, power rests With the deceased's parents. That means that Joe and Katherine Jackson may bury their son according to their own wishes, and they also are not legally bound to follow any desires Michael might have indicated verbally. lEG live Negotiates Documentarv NEW YORK --AEG Live, the company behind Mich-ael Jackson's planned comeback in is negotiating with ; several Hollywood studios seeking a deal to release in movie .theate r s a documel)., tary about tfie ;final days of' the pop-singer, the W.all Street Journal said on -its wehsite.

The film then fast-forwards four years, and Loso has' bec.ome a big rap artist while his friend serves time in prison and eventually gets out. Chaos prevails momentarily when Loso and his Street Fam are out one night, and before they all go to their respective vehi cles, an unknown assailant shoots Loso in the leg. It's a C very similar to when Fab was hit in the leg by a bullet a few years back. Loso wakes up, handcuffed to a hospital bed and the police try to stick gun charges on him and his crew after they find firearms in the rapper's suv Styles P plays an upand-coming rapper named Bang, who tests Loso's resolve and street credibility by making a dis song against him.

Michael Jackson Was The Biological Father Of His Kids, lito Insists Jackson's dermatologist might haV;e been the sperm donor for two of the children and that a custody battle is brewing between the children's mother, Debbie Rowe, and the Jackson family. Michael's older brother Tito spoke to British tabloid The Daily Mirror to set the record straight, insisting that MJ is the biological father of his children: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., Paris Michael Katherine J acks'on and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II. "They are all his children," Tito said. "Blanket-is Michael's, I can tell. Those eyes don't lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him." Tito went on to dispute any suggestion that the children's light complexions prove the fact that Jackson is not their father. "Paris and Prince are Michael's children," he sa\d. "Yes, they are. Just because they look white does n't mean they are not his." Paris Jackson and Prihce Michael Jackson 1; While it is known that Rowe is the mother of the eldest Jackson children, the identity of Blanket's mother is unknown, even to the Jackson family. '". Tito went on to say that the children lived as normal an existence as they could, given that their father was the King of Pop, and even enjoyed famously wearing masks in public to hide their faces. "They know they are famous and they know their dad was famous,, he said. "When you grow up in the business, it becomes totally natural. Being ;;tround it every day, seeing the girls screaming and having to rush into cars all the time, it was a way of life."
