Countv OHic. ial wants To Avoid Cuts To Vital Programs BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter On Wednesday, the Board of County Commissioners started work on next year's fiscal budget with hopes of saving popular services from budget cuts Hillsborough County budgets on a two-year-cycle, and county administrators have tentatively balance the fiscal 2011 budget, but won t adopt a finished produce until September The proposed budget they will be working with now in cludes about $20 million in cuts to county departments and non-profit organizations that serve the sick, poor, eld erly and children. Assistant County Administrator and Director of County Management Services, Eric Johnson, said the public has spoken out about cuts they don t want. "When we revisit the budget and have more public hearings we'll look at how we can resist making cuts in vital services. Right now we ve targeted Aging Services Animal Services, Code Enforcement and Zoning as the areas that will experience cuts." Johnso n said they need all of the county departments to find ways to reduce the cost of providing services. "Until we get to June, the focus has to be on cutting costs. We have four months to cut costs and keep the services going To Be Printed FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12th Deadline: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5th 3 P.M. NO EXCEPTIONS!

However, during economic challenges, it LL now appears that certain legislators (who just HAPPEN to be Republican) as well as the governor himself, not to < mention a gaggle of born-again educators, are willing to sacrifice our children's educational progress, in order to 0 balance the state budget, one niore time! (J) Well, we don't believe our children's education should w :J be sacrificed in order to balance a budget, especially when tons of research weigh in favor of the argument ij: that children learn better in smaller classes with compeW tent teachers. iij Is anybody listening, at all? After seven years to fully 0 implement the 2002 class-size legislation, we find diffiW culty believing some Republicans continue to say school J: (J) systems still need to pack students in classes like sar-::::J dines. To the_ contrary, now is the time for everyone to use creativity to solve this classroom problem. Si,nce preD.. kindergarten through third grade are foundation years Z of a child's education, we suggest these years be required i= to meet the limit of 18 students per classroom. w ..J The day Republican and renegade Democratic legisla-5 tors move to limit the size of the prison population, is the m day we will reconsider tampering with Florida's class..:. size amendment.

It was Obama against a room full of hungry meat eat in g anti-Obama R ep ubli cans. It was lik e th e Biblical story of Daniel in th e Lion's Den. It co uld also be compared to David and Goliath. For all practical purpose s, Pres. Obama was all a l o n e aga in s t a gang determined to embarr ass him b efo r e a n a ti o n a l t e l evis ion audience. When the event was over it could be said that Pres. Obama came, he saw, h e met the challenge he conquered it. Pres. Obama came to the retreat armed with a bushel of facts, a sack full of confi dence and the ability to articulate like few others can. Depending on the situation, Mr. Obama was charming, funny, scolding, and conciliatory and a college profes-Yesterday was the begin ning of Black History Month, as if our history could a: 0 ..J u.. be told in 28 or 29 (LEAP YEAR) days.

We do not care if we were the only ones clapping. Our state's request, progress and readiness to begm such a project were no doubt, responsible for our sele<;tion. However, we do understand why some citizens could protest President Obama's recent fiscal :kindness. Even more so, we are puzzled as to how voters could criticize President Obama for practically everything that he does or says. Certain elements of Congress have loudly let it be known that anything beginning with "O" (except for maybe "Oatmeal") will not get off the Congressional floor. Indeed, Vice President Biden was so incensed; he publicly stated that, in all his life, he had never seen a straight 6o vote in the Senate until Obama became president. Therefore, is there any question as to why the Obama administration has found gridlock, at the Capitol? Now that Conservative-Republicans (and back-stabbing Democrats) have a clear majority, will it not be nearly im-"'t possible for the Obama administration to pass even a w tooth-pick through Congress? The question we aSk is C!J "When will the public stop blaming President Obama and begin questioning the senate's party-line 6o vote?" brate our heritage and our his tory everyday because 1 : we touch birth (incu bator) to death (casket-lower ing device) on a daily basis has been influenced by a person of calor. In fact, you're reading this newspaper because of varia tions to the printing press made by A. W. Lavalette in 1878 and an assembled com position printing process de veloped by Charles A Bankhead. Just think, making a bologna sandwich or grilling a steak becomes a Black history lesson when you consider that bread is mass-produced and lunch meats e cured because of the ingenuity of two Blacks by the sor. It was clear th at Pres. Obama unnerY ed hi s h os ts and host esses. T h e Pre sid t'nt acc u sed Republicans of being obstructionis t s w h o at t e mpted t o d erail t'\ t'l') thing h e had tried to do for th e American people. Th e Pr esident admittt.'d that h e h ad in corporated Republican ideas into hi s polici es w h e n eve r they were a good fit.

Pres. Obama re minded them that the blems facing America were not Democratic or Republiname of Joseph Lee and lloyd Hall, respectively. Furthermore, meat tender izer and worchestershire sauce for your steak and charcoal briquettes for the grill were in vented by George Washington Carver. Those of you who have lawns to take care of use water sprin klers and water sprinkler sys tems invented by Black men, J. W. Sinith 'and Elijah McCoy respectively. If you mow your lawn yourself, you can thank J. W. Burr for in venting the lawnmower and D. Johnson for creating the grass catcher attached to the mower. As you drive off to work, re member the car s gear shift was invented by Robert Spikes, the eclr' s combustion engine was invented by Joseph Gammel, and the universal joint was invented by Tony Helm; or, if you're riding a bicycle these days, the bicycle frame was invented by R. Johnson. The traffic lights, street sweeper and trolley car you pass on your way to can hut nf lw fmwnt'i.l and at t i lnnkt d in. Prts.

As you reach to adjust th e thermostat in your office or home, remember th e air-con ditioning unit and thermostat were invented by Frederick Jones and a heating system was developed by David N. Crostwaith, Jr. Your com puter and internet were devel oped or improved, or greatly influenced by Blacks, whose names have been obscured by corporate patent rights. In deed, more recent inventions by Blacks after the 1930's have been patented in the name of governments or corporations for whom the inventors worked. In medicine, Dr. Percy Julian, a research chemist whose work with steroids re sulted in treatments for asthma, arthritis and glau. coma, also improved the fire extinguisher. Dr. Louis T. Wright developed the antibi otic, aureomycin and Dr. Jane Cook Wright-Jones developed cancer chemother apy. Heart pacemakers, x-ray machines, and lasers have alS() been invented by Blacks. So, you a day in your life never passes without it being influenced by Black hist01:ical inventions. Consider, what you have just read is only the tip of an iceberg of inventions by men and women who look like yo u and me. Harambee!

In addition, Moore is suspected of having offered to give away a home worth approximately $2oo,ooo.oo in exchange for making a false report to law enforcement regarding an alleged recent sighting of Shakespeare.

I satin court during the trial SYLVESTER, DUNSON, JR. ..... his aunt said there is no gang in Plant City. and not once did I hear evi dence that any of them were a part of a gang. Vickers said the bigge st travesty of all is that they were all convicted b y an a ll -w hit e jury. "How is it fair that three young black men are convicted by a group of white people who see them as criminals simply because they may look like it or talk like it? "My nephew has been in trouble before, but nothing like this.

If that's not bad enough they had already been pun ished for the charges they were arrested on. They were all un justly convicted and somebody needs to step up and help these three young m en." Vickers said she has con tacted the Tampa-Hillsbo rough NAACP branch and they are inv estigat ing to see if ther e were any civil rights violations during the trial or in the makeup of the jury. Dunson, Davis, and George are the first defen dants from the alleged gang to go to triaL Three others have pleaded guilty and have been sentenced to various prison terms ranging from five to 10 years.

Under the BCS, the champions of six conference have automatic bids to play in toptier bowl games, while the other conferences .don't.
