Monday, ::l August 17, 2009, when Judge Richard Lazzara C:( swore in 8 persons who will C listen at testimony in the civil ffi lawsuit filed againt ::l Hillsborough County 1-Commissioner Kevin White and Hillsborough County. White is being sued for sexual harassment by his for mer aide Alyssa Ogden. Judge Lazzara gave spe cific instructions to the 6 women and 2 men selected. None of the 8 is African American. Ogden states that she was fired because she resisted romantic advances from White He, in turn; says she was fired for poor performance after being warned. The 2-year-old case is final ly going to trial at a price tag, so far of more than $ 1oo,ooo paid b y the mone y-stra pped County. Before hearing testimony, the judge had to clear up some evidentiary issues regarding testimony from expert witnesses, a FBI i nter view, allegations from the Florida Elections Commission regarding the use of cam' Paign donations; an Orlando phone call, grievance process with Hillsborough County's Human Resources Dept., an EEOC letter, photos of Ogden taken from My Space and a questionable email from mother to daughter However, the jurors will have plenty of admissible tes timony to decide whether the then 22-year-old Ogden was fired f.or refusing her boss' sexual advances.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor What began as a request for police to do a wellness 'check on an individual on Saturday afternoon resulted in a possible double murder and suicide investigation involvirtg . two police agencie : P01ice responlled to 3201 i -W. lvy Street to check on a man who contacted his sister-in-law to t ell her goodbye. Tampa Police responded t o the address at 1:34 p.m. and knocked, but didn't get a response. After knocking on the side door, police said Robert Velazquez, 31, informed them that he was armed and was going to kill himself. One of the officers was a trained hostage negotiator and established a dialogue with Velazquez via the cell phone. During the conversation, Velazquez allegedly told the officer that he had killed someone. He then stated that he had killed two people, police said. The officer continued to engage Velazquez in conversation for more than so minutes. After hearing Velazquez charge his weapon, the Tactical Response Team was activated and residences in the area were evacuated. Upon approaching the residence and identifying themselves as police, the officers reportedly observed the body of a woman on the floor through a pm1ially opened door. At that point, Velazquez reportedly pointed his weapon at the TRT members, and was ordered to drop the weapon. Instead of complying; police said Velazquez responded that he was armed and willing to use the gun. The standoff continued. At 4:05p.m., Velazquez $!;lowed his face for the second time and poliited the gun at police An officer fired one shot nicking Velazquez on the hand. Velazquez is said to have fired two shots at police and ran down a hallway. Shm1ly afterward, police heard another shot and a loud noise. Unsure if Velazquez was still alive and armed, police filled the house with tear-gas After entering the house, they found Velazquez outside of the bathroom. He had a gunshot wound to the head They also confirmed that the body of the woman was that of Ms. Dina Martin, 28 who shared the aduress. Police had responded to the home four times since Dina Martin and Robert Velazquez are shown on her MySpace Page. She had written, "Live life as if you will die tomorrow."

Reminders of how alive and well hate has become in America. We are deeply concerned about one such report regarding a Black homeowner who built a home valued at nearly $soo,ooo in Florida's Citrus County, only to find firecrackers had been installed' in his tireplace by resentful contractors. It was later determined that the M-90 fireworks, which were left in the man's fireplace, were of sufficient force to have maimed if not killed whomever might have lit. the fireplace. Reminiscent of bombings of homes and churches of Blacks during the 1940s, sos, 6os and early 70s, we view these events as continuous reality checks for us all. While the Southern Poverty Law Center attributes the economy and election of a Black president to the growth in militia groups (citizens armies) in the country, we are convinced that hate and ingrown racism has simply begotten its own. What is America to do about itS present state of growing disunion? Unless our country engages in nationwide conversations and -daring dialogue on race relations and immigration, we will soon be seeing more than the tip of an iceberg, but will suffer the fate of a fabled Titanic. We say again, beginning in churches, civic groups, colleges and universities, barber shops, beauty shops, street corners, wherever America congregates, we must begin the dialogue of understanding. Else the great ship called America will sink. And the declaration of our independence will have all been for nothing. I The Mvsterv Of MeiManinez I F uture historians will no doubt, scratch their heads. Either that or some enterprising and creative author will publish a book entitled, "Former Senator Melvin Martinez: What q?" For the meantime, Florida voters are left to ponder what has become a maddening question: Why did Sen. Mel abruptly resign his post, grab all his marbles and head for home? According to Martinez, his reason for retiring as Minority Senator of the nation's fourth largest state was very undramatic. He wanted to. spend more time with his family. Surely, we all could understand that, given the unbelievable pressure put on even local level governmental representatives. During these days of abrupt political change, Florida voters and political prognosti-cators have come to the conclUsion that, indeed (or at least in Florida) anything that CAN happen, WILL happen. As America's first Cuban-born senator to go to Capitol Hill, Mel Martinez had a ready-made place in American History. Adding to the fact he proved tQ be a diehard Republican conservative in the tradition of the Nixonera Beebee Rebozo (a Cuban refugee who lived in Miami and who was a personal friend of Richard Nixon), Mel Martinez developed a tradition that reminded many of a popular commercial. When Mel Martinez spoke, "everybody listened!" But then he began to say some peculiar things at least in the minds of the Conservative W Republicans. He began to champion Latin Hispanic immigration issues. And when newly-installed Supreme a. Court Justice Sotomayor was being considered; as Second Chances Last week we learned that the Philadelphia Eagles had signed Michael Vick to a one-year deal. It was a noble act for the decision-makers and an example of mankind's willing ness to forget . A few years ago, Michael Vick was arrested, tried, and convicted of having a dog fighting business. He was sen tenced to prison and lost his position as one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Some felt the punishment was fitting for the crime. While I don't endorse the mistreatment of any animal, I feel that the punishment was an example to others in his position. Someone wanted to send him a message and the judicial system agreed to be the courier. After his conviction two years ago this month, the Atlanta Falcons said they wanted nothing else to do with him. That was there decision and they just might live to regret it. At the age of 29, Vick still has a lot of years left in him. But the fuel that will ignite his fire is the desire to prove that he can be better than his for mer self. He admitted that he was wrong and took his punish ment. He has also been taken under the wing of former NFL football coach Tony Dungy. I can't help but wonder what more does those crying for blood want? After all, we have people who have killed children and never spent a night in jail. So, the question of, does an animal's rights outweigh those of children, begs to be answered. Football Commissioner Roger Goodell lifted what had been an indefinite suspension when Vick was arrested. Now, he has agreed to allow him to play in two pre-season games and deter mine if he will fully reinstate the young athlete. We live in a society that speaks out of both sides of its mouth We claim to be forgiving, but we just never get around to it. Once he has served his time, he should be allowed to resume his career. If we are supposed to be examples to the rest of the world, then we need to be just that. When second chances are deserved, then the past should be forgiven and for gotten. Students Have A Bole In Education Without a doubt, schools, parents and the community all have roles in the educa tion of our children. But as students, children have a very vital role in their education. The first thing students must understand is how important education is and how much education impacts their every day lives It is also important that children develop a strong desire to be educated and a thirst to want to know. They must develop a love for coming to school and should come every day school is in session, unless an illness or a family crisis prevents that. Not only must children attend school regularly, they need to come prepared to learn. Children need to respect their teachers, school person nel, each other and themselves. They need to be obe dient, pay attention in, class, listen to their teachers, come to prepared to partici pate, participate in c.I;1ss discussions and activities, and ask questions when they don't know or understand When a student comes to class without pencil, p aper, books and other class related materials they are like a car penter showing up on the job without hammer, nails, a saw, a ruler and other needed building and repairing equip ment. Without these things the carpenter can1t work and without these educational materials a student can't learn. A student has a responsibility to develo-p -good study habits, to do homework arid to prepare themselves for the ; next day of school. Students should develop a desire to want to do well in school, a desire to make good grades, a desire to want to learn all they can and a desire to be the best student that they can pOssibly be. Students should participate in school clubs, programs and in extra curricular activities. These are way s to. improve your charisma, your ability to articulate, your abil ity to work with others as a team and develop your lead ership skills So you can see students have a most impor tant role in their education. Teachers can teach you and expose you to educational concepts, but they can't learn you anything. Students have to take what teachers teach and learn it for themselves. Becoming educated is not an easy task. It is not a task that lasts for a limited amount of time. In fact, education is a from birth to death process that takes place every day. Parents, you must understand that it is not the job of the schools to raise and edu cate your child all by them selves. Instead, it is the job of the school, the parents, the child and the whole village. It takes a whole village to raise a child and it takes that same village to educate a child. Your child has a role to play in or her education. Encourage your child daily to assume that role. America's first Latin-Hispanic Supreme Court judge, Mel Martinez supported her candidacy. That was certainly a kiss of death for a fiscal "no-holds-barred," "bare-knuckled" conservative. Behind closed doors, the question was floated, "What else will Martinez not support, the Republican opposition to Universal Healthcare?" So, Mel Martinez has retired. No doubt, his den walls will be festooned With thankful plaques and pictures. Yet, we here, in Florida, must wrestle with a legitimate mystery. Why did Martinez jump ship in the middle of the stream? Only one person knows the answer. And he's not talking!

Tonya Lewis provided school supplies and other services for area youth, in spite ofthe sagging economy. Recently, Mrs. Lewis received proclamations from the Hillsborough County Board Of Commissioners and the Tampa City Council for her humanitarian work in the communi ty. "When I decided to start Children With A Vision, it was never for any personal recognition. It was to help families by providing free school supplies for their children, and to also provide opportunities for the children to meet high profiled figures and elected officials This year has been particular tough, because the economy has affected my regular sources of spon sors. On top of that, the number of children we serve has grown more than 4,000 this year." The event for the first 7 years had been held on the grounds of Mrs. Lewis's business on 15th Street. However, because the crowds have gotten bigger, the past two years, it has been held at Ragan Park, 1200 East Lake Avenue. "There are so many people I owe thanks for helping me over the years. They are the ones who should be rec ognized, and I will make sure they get all the credit for making Children With A Vision a success." BY LEON B.

Although notable progress has been made in improving the health of Blacks and other minori ties, evidence suggests that race correlate with persistent and often increasing disparities in healthcare compared to the rest of the state's population. DR. EMILE C. COMMEDORE For many minorities, there is a lack of providers, lack of transportation, and health liter acy which help to create this disparity." "Closing the Gap focuses on disease prevention education, health screenings a nd doctor referrals. The goal is to extend the reach of traditional public health to people at a community level. The idea is that people inside the community are better positioned to know its needs. The program hopes to solve health disparities by looking within each community first. According to the Office of Minority Health, Black infant mortality is 2.5 times higher than whites. Prostate cancer death rate is 3 times higher for Black men. With statistics like these, it is obvious how neces sary programs like "Closing the Gap" is to the Black community. The organizations that receive these grants are based in minority communities and therefore have the opportunity to provide healthcare assistance to the residents, and referrals to patients who need treatment. Dr. Commedore hopes that by training the grantees of the "Closing the Gap" program, health problems plaguing the Black community, will decrease in the future. Diabetes death rate i s 2-3 times higher for Blacks. And Blacks are 7 times more likely to contract HIV /AIDS than whites The workshop's O rganizer was Dr. Emile Commedore. He has been the director of the Office of Minority Health for the past two years. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sororitv, Inc.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote to Stallworth outlining his reasons for imposing the ban, for violating the league' s policies on substances of abuse and person al conduct. There is no question that your actions had tragic consequences to an innocent man and his family, and that you have violated both the Substances of Abuse and Personal Conduct Policies, Goodell wrote in the letter, excerpts of which were released by the league on Thursday.

Brown asks the former Falcons quarterback if he was more concerned about his playing career or the dogs he hurt, and Vick replies, "Football don't even matter."

The key : agent Eugene Parker doesn' t want to budge, well, at least until September, on his demands for a slot-busting deal that would get Crabtree something close to one of the biggest guaran tees among the rookie deals of '09, despite his being drafted 10th.

Sports PoorPuninu DoomsTiuer CHASKA, Minn. --His bid for a 15th major championship vanquished, -Tiger Woods stood on the 18th green at Hazeltine National on Sunday holding his putter in his hands and staring in disbelief. Fourteen times he had started the Sunday of a major with the lead. Fourteen times he brought the trophy home. Of all the ways for that remarkable streak to come to an end, death by putter had to be the most improbable. Long known for nailing clutch putts on the biggest of stages, Woods missed seven inside of 10 feet at the PGA Championship on Sunday to let a two-shot lead slip away to first-time major winner Y.E. Yang. "I made absolutely nothing," said Woods, who had 33 putts in the round his highest total of the week. I just have to say, terrible day on the greens. And I had it at the wrong time. Woods started the day with a two-shot lead over Yang and Padraig Harrington, and his reputation as the game's greatest closer had many treating the early portion of the round as TIGER WOODS a coronation. But Yang proved to be tougher and more focused than anyone imagined, never wilting under_ Tiger's glare and forcing him to do more than just intimidate to win. For the first time in his major career, Woods wasn't up to the task. Tied at the turn, Woods missed makable putts on Nos 10, 13 and 17 as Yang surged to the -front. Woods could never answer, shooting a 3o ver 75 to finish at 5 under, three strokes behind Yang. "I hit the ball great off the tee, hit my irons well," Woods said. "I did everything I needed to do except for getting the ball in the hole." Rov Jones Jr. Stops overmatched lacv After 10 To Keep NABO Crown BILOXI, M-i Roy Jones Jr. w1th the crowd -and with Jeff Lacy, stopping his overwhelmed opponent after the 10th round on Saturday to retain the NABO light heavy weight championship title. The 40-year old former eight-time world champion used a left hook to cut Lacy's right eye in the third round, and both of Lacy's eyes were swelling by the seventh Lacy didn t answer the bell for the nth round. Jones joked when asked when he thought the bout was in his hands. "When they gave me the gloves," Jones said. "My hands are still as fast as ever I've got the quickest speed in the game." Lacy's strategy for the faster Jones was apparent from the outset. The 32-year old tried to pin Jones on the ropes throughout t he fight. Jones was unaffected by the tactic and seemed more worried about playing to the crowd than about Lacy's punches. As Lacy tried to tussle with Jones in the corners, Jones told the Mississippi Coast Coliseum crowd "Watch this on several occasions, follow ing with fast combinations that eventually took their toll on Lacy. "I've got to give the crowd what they want," Jones sa id "T he crowd asked for it so I gave them what the y wanted. I still love what I do." All three judges had Jones far ahead on their scorecards before the match was stopped. "(Lacy) could do whatever he wanted to do. I trained for everything, Jones said. "If that's the kind of fight he wanted, that's what I'll give them." Lacy, 32, is a former IBF super middlweight champion with four successful defenses before losing to Joe Calzaghe in 2006. Brooks To Visit Raiders DERRICK BROOKS A day after working out for the New Orleans Saints, veteran linebacker Derrick Brooks visited the Oakland Raiders according to a league source. Brooks and Derek Smith both worked out for the Saints on Wednesday and both left without a contract as the Saints decide what to do with Mark Simoneau undergoing surgery on a torn right triceps. The 36-year-old Brooks has been to 11 Pro Bowls and made it clear that he wanted to continue his career after he was released February-25th in Tampa Bay following the takeover by the new Mark Dominick-Raheem Morris regime. Usian Bolt Takes Goldin The 100-Meter Final Usain Bolt was strikingly great. BERLIN --The world's fastest man is now even faster, swifter still than the Usain Bolt who sprinted and danced to an Ol ympic victory at the Beijing Ol ympics last year. The Jamaican superstar fired off another v.rorld record at the world championships in Berlin Sunday, lowering his own 100-meter mark to 9.58 seconds from the 9.69 he ran in winning the Olympics. Unlike last summer, Bolt ran through the finish line, wait ing until after his moment in history to celebrate. He was gamely chased by a rejuve nated Tyson Gay, the U.S. rival and defending world champion who was felled by a hamstring injury last year and established himself as a worthy challenger to Bolt with some strong early-sea son performances. Gay fin ished in a solid 9.71 seconds. BEAUTY UNLIMITED CARMEN This week's Beauty Unlimited feature is the lovely 5'6" Libra known as Carmen.
