0 c; Feature N Countv Commission Chair Threatens To Fire Top OHicials; Then Back Peddles BY IRIS B HOLTON Sentine l C ity Edito r This p ast week in county govC e rnm e nt ha s b ee n filled with a: LL. calls for resignations On Tue s day, the Chairman of the Hills b o rough County Board of Commi ss ion e r s called for th e r es ignations of thr ee top offi cia l s, stating th e thre e sen ior a dministr a tor s invol ved h a d made tremendous e rror s in d e c i sionm aking. On W e dnesday, after th e Commission Chair aired his requests at a board transportation workshop, his challenger for the District 5 seat called for him to step down. The workshop ended with the public request being unre solved and the commissioner leading the charge for termina tion making a 360 degree turn. The latest wrinkle began on Tuesday when Hillsborough County Board of Commission ers Chairman Ken Hagan released "An Open Letter to the Community. In the letter, Chairman c Ken Hagan said the three top a: officials had "fallen woefully U. short of expectations." C Using terminology in the letter such as toxic and dys> functional," Chairman Hagan asked for the resignacn tions of County Administrator Pat Bean, County Attorney .,_ Renee Lee, and County Internal Performance Auditor Jim w > w c w ::1: en ::l m ::::: a.. KEN HAGAN .. Chairman, Board of County Commissioners Barnes. He called for them to vacate their respective posts by noon on Tuesday, March 16th under a threat of removal. The latest controversy per tains to more than 6,ooo emails written between July and November 2009. The e mails were from Barnes' of fice, and involved FDLE investigators and County Com missioners. They also report edly contained confidential information and documents pertaining to an investigation involving pay raises. E-mails from government entities are considered public record under Florida law. How ever, some e-mails involving audits and active criminal probe are exempt from the law. Barnes accused Ms. Bean and Attorney Lee of obtain ing the emails illegally. When given a chance to speak, Barnes said, "The re-MS. PAT BEAN ... ffillsborough County Administrator port stands on itself .... I will not resign, not today, not to morrow, and not next week." County Administrator Bean said she is being repre sented by legal counsel, but had not asked her attorney to ap pear. She also stated that she had requested copies of the e mails after hearing rumors about them. "Sometime in late October or November, it was suggested by staff that someone was look ing at e-mail records ... I did receive copies, but never opened them and never looked at them." Administrator Bean supported her claim by passing commissioners a copy of a poly graph that she had successfully passed. She also requested time at the next meeting for her at torney to address the board. County Attorney Renee Lee addressea the board and MS. RENEE LEE ... Hillsborough County Attorney d enie d any wrongdoing a nd cited her highly qualifi e d staff who specializes in publi c records She was also represented by Attorney Chinwe 0. Fossett, of Cohen Foster & Romine, P. A. Attorney Fossett stated that after conduct ing their own interviews her firm believes that Attorney Lee has been treated unjustly, dating back to 2007 when the issue of the 1% raises b ega n I think it is important to note that not only was Mr. Barnes notifi e d of th e public records requests for e m ails and other do c um e nta tion rel at ing to 'the 1% Award and the subse quent FDLE investigation, th e a dministrative aides for each of the County Commissioners were made aware of the re quests too "Ms. Lee has made it abundantly clear that she never directly or indirectly made any records requests at it pertained to Mr. Barnes, the FDLE's in vestigation of the 1% Award, or any of the County Commissioners." Citing Attorney Lee's track record as an attorney for more than 25 years, Attorney Fossett said, "We all know that accusations can be made easily, but people of integrity take the time to investigate ac cusations and find out if the al legations can be substantiated. ... One's reputation can be de stroyed in a moment ... but you have not conducted a proper in vestigation before proceeding., Beckner said that by including Barnes, they were sending the wrong message to employees, citing the Whistle Blower statue, because Barnes al legedly comp'hiined about his e mails being hacked into by Ms. Bean and Attorney Lee. Commissioner White said the "allegations warrant an investigation, not a public lynching." Commissioner Rose Ferlita said they must find a way to get the issue resolved. Commissioner Mark Sharpe went on a tirade about information not being supplied within 5 days and supported Commissioner Hagan's re quest. However, only after Ms. Lee's attorney pointed out key facts about their rush to judg ment and action, did he state they needed to look into the email issue more thoroughly. Commissioner Rose Ferlita attempted to convince Attorney Fossett that the b jec tiv n nd n o t ru h t judg ment. m tinp.. s h e n d d rep r t r who q u e,ti n d h r nb ut i l n tin g th e 1111 hin l h furt h r s l o t d thnt s h hnd b n v r y riti 11 of Mr. Burne durin g t h 2010 wor k h op.

I need to understand before I fire a e mploy ee .... Ther 's just a po ss ibility tl1at w e' r e Wr-ong," h e said. Commissioner Hagan suggested existin g e mploy s serve in int e rim position to avoid th e interruption of ervice to the public whil e th e county conducts a n a tion a l search to fill the three posi tions For mor e than two hours, the meeting labored on with various Commissioners weigh ing in. The call for termination and a nationwide search to replace the three officials come on the tail of recent cutbacks, em ployee terminations and prom ises of future cutbacks and layoffs. If terminations take place, taxpayers will pickup the tab, paying Ms. Bean a year's salary and benefits package of more than $440, ooo, and Attorney Lee a year's salary o{ $230,000, in addition to bene fits. Barnes would also re ceive nearly $40,000, or three months of his $113,090 salary and benefits. Although the issues were discussed at length, the only agreements reached were to hire 8!1 outside employment at torney to the board and to continue the discussion at the next scheduled meeting on commiSsioner Hagan cur:. rently represents District 2. However, he is running for the at-laige DiStrict 5 seat as aresult of term limits. After the meeting, City Coun cilwoman Unda Saul-Sena, who plans to challenge Commissioner Hagan for the seat issued a press release. In the release she said, "The chaos that the county finds it self in is a direct result of the failed leadership of Ken Hagan and only now, in the middle of an election year is he trying to fix the mess that he made. "What we are witnessing right now as a result of Hagan's failed leadership is miserable, unprofessional and quite possibly criminal mischief within the CountY Administra tion," stated Saui-Sena.

This year the tour extended into He was accompariied by 53 student, staff and C( faculty members. C Before he met with the Editorial Board, upon ....1 arrival at the Sentinel office, u. he was greeted by 5 young Qlen from Middleton High who were accompa nied by their mentors, Cpl. Clethen Sutton and Major' Gerald Honeywell. Dr. Ammons is telling FAMU's story of how the university has impacted the lives of over so,ooo and currently is the largest HBCU with an enrollment of 12,300 students. While telling the story of the great things that are happening at FAMU and with its students, Dr. 1.1:1, ... ., .. .., ..... also told the Editorial Board about the "very dark period" the university wi;tl experience over the next 2 years. Starting in July, budget will be cut by $13.4 million, and in 2011, the $8 million the school received in Stimulus money will also go away. FAMU's total oper ating budget is $400 mil-lion. -Dr. Ammons stated that FAMU is going to survive. He wants the students, faculty and staff to have "a v oice in how we will face these tough times."

Commissioners Ken Hagan and Mark Sharpe seem more anxious to get there than 2 kids running up to the front gates at Disney World. These commissioners in a sidebar call meeting on Wednesday, say it's time for County Administrator Pat Bean, County Attorney Renee Lee, and Internal Performance Auditor James Barnes to resign. Barnes is at the root of all of the hoohah at the center. Allegedly, in his attemptto keep his $113,000job, the self-appointed 'messenger' loaded his guns and came out shooting. In 2009, Barnes reported to the Board, that 2 top secret 1% pay raises were awarded to Bean and Lee in 2007. This discovery, on the heels of a poor performance review led Commissioner Kevin Beckner to request a criminal investigation against the two, miraculously taking the spotlight off of the embattled auditor. Now Barnes has accused Bean AND Atty. Lee of reading his emails surrounding the investigation. Bean admitted getting the emails, but says she didn't read them. However, Atty. Lee has vehemently denied any wrongdoing and has provided the Board with everything that Barnes did not ----facts evidence and an investigation. Her response shot down Barnes' attempt to cause a panic. But that wasn't good enough for the elected duo at County Center. These two wanted heads and headlines. In case you didn't know, Atty. Renee Lee is African American. She is highly qualified and has been given sparkling evaluations by this very Board. She has had a 25 year career without a nick, and most recently was appointed by Governor Charlie Crist to help make recon. how .tP .strengthen open government in Florida. To her credit, Lee has also assembled a staff of top public records veterans. A of this .:Soard have uniformly praised ih the past. Why these guys are clumping Atty. Lee into the pile, is a question we as a community need to ask? Was it convenient or do these guys honestly think they can use County Commission meetings as the soapbox for their future political aspirations at the expense of ruining someone else's career. The County has a policy against making false accusations and this Board claims to be a big proponent of accountability. But this week's episode of "As The County Turns", was a scene of elected officials gone wild. Being accountable for YOUR actions people, that's what' s important here. And, more than anyone, our community has to understand this, and vote accordingly. T hi s \ Veek was a very im p o rt a nt w ee k in sc h oo l dis trict s all a ero s th e Stat e o f Florida Thi s was FCAT week. The FCAT is a test that is very important to students, individual schools and to every sing l e schoo l district. It is a tool used to evaluate stu dent's l earning in each school and the sc hool district. The FCAT is a good educa tional tool that could be help ful and effective, if used right. The problem with the FCAT is that it is used all wrong The way it is used is that it supersedes all other educational efforts in our schools. If the FCAT was used to M ay I say I like nothing better than a nice, leisurely breakfast at my fa vorite greasy spoon. I go there, order three-pigs in a blanket (also known as sausage wrapped in pancakes), sip my coffee black, and contemplate how to whip an oncoming day that has no intentions of letting me succeed. Then in walks Hineparts (that's J. Algonquin Hines, but everybody calls him "Hineparts," for short, behind his back, of course). When I saw him, I knew something was wrong. In ad dition to his usual scowl, he had a strange, sad look about him, as if he'd had a fist-fight with his best friend. So, Hineparts slid into my booth, without saying good-morning, and just sat there, counting his fingers. Then he spoke "You ever thought about getting a di vorce?" "A WHAT?" "A divorce," ti o n a w a kn s stre n g th grade l e v 1 p e rformanc and to d e termin e th e mo t ffi -tive teaching trate gi e s th e test would be good. But that is not the way it works. Instead, it is u ed to determine if students will g e t promoted and whether chil dren will be allowed to graduate from high school and move on to college. It doesn 't matter what the teachers think. It doesn't matter that the student may have a high grade point aver age and it does not matter if the sh1dents passed the ACT or the SAT. The only thing, that really matters is whether or not the senior student snarled Hineparts, "Cain't you hear?' "I hear very well, thank you," I snapped! "But what I don't hear is what my personal business has got to do with your personal busi ness!" Hineparts went back to counting his fingers. Then with Bloodhound eyes, he looked up at me and said, "Why is it that when people know they have done some thing wrong, they try to turn the tables on you and make out you're the one that done something wrong when in fact, it was them that did it, all along? 'You understand what I'm talking about?" I put my fork down and stared at Hineparts. I had no itlea in the world what he was talking about! "What I mean," Hineparts continued, "is my wife and me got into this argument about something she did that she knew I knew she did, then before I could say any thing, she turned around and ...... I\) 0 ...... 0 'TI r-0 :!! c > jumped on me for something en I did that had nothing what-m soever to do with what she did! And that kind f titfor-Z tat just burns the h eck out Of mel" m I offered Hineparts a ? cup of black coffee. He ac-rcepted it and proceeded to g) ruin it by putting three tea-Z spoons of sugar and to tiny cups of cream in it. m Then he continued. '"You r-c;; know, I was reading the :::z::: paper, the other day, and I m saw on the front-page where there was another dude what < did the exact same thing my wife likes to do. This fellah -< what works for the County 2 knew folks had the spotlight m on him, so what he done was c he simply turned the tables and put the spotlight on > everybody else, and almost Z got away like a fat rat in a cheese factory!" :::u Hineparts put his cup 6 down and gave me that sad look. "You know what I started calling my wife?" "What have you started call-ing your wife?" I asked. Hineparts leaned over the table and lowered his voice to a whisper, "I call her the AUDITOR!" (I sat back, poured myself another cup of coffee, and thought to myself, "Lord have-mercy!") Ci) m Ul I >

Take, for instance, his approach to guarding Dominique Jones. The South Florida star ripped apart the Hoyas the last time the two teams met, and was coming off an impressive performance that helped his team reach the second round of the Big East tournament. "I just yelled at the guys 'Guard him!'" Thompson said, grinning. They sure listened, and didn't stop with the league s second-leading scorer. The No. 22 Hoyas frustrated South Florida all over the court in a 69-49 second-round victory W ednesday, prope lling them into a mar quee m atchup with regular season champion Syracuse. Jason Clark and Greg Monroe scored 16 points each Georgetown (21-9), which held the Bulls to a sea-son-low 29.1 percent from the field pretty decent evep by Thompson's stringent standards. It was the second straight game and fifth time this season that an opponept failed to break so against the Hoyas' numbing defense.

Sports Mason To Return To Ravens; Agrees On 2-Year Deal DERRICK MASON BALTIMORE After twice reaching outside the organi zation to enhance their wide receiving corps, the Baltimore Ravens secured one of their own Wednesday night: two-time Pro Bowl player Derrick Mason. Mason, an unr estricted free age nt agree d to a two yea r deal with th e t ea m h e join e d in 2005 Mason's future w ith t h e Ra ve n s appeared unclear after the Ravens obtained free agent wid eout Donte' Stallworth a nd trade d for Anquan Boldin. Mason hint e d after th e 2009 seaso n that h e might retire, and there was a l so a c h ance h e would sign with another team. But now he's set to end his career with Baltimore and his return assures third-year quarterback Joe Fiacco a familiar target to go with Stallworth and Boldin. Free Agent Terrell Owens Will Meet With Bengals TERRELL OWENS CINCINNATI -Terrell Owens headed to Cincinnati on Tuesday to see if the Bengals are interested in -adding him to their stalled-out passing game. The 36-year-qld receiver tweeted on Tuesday that he was on his way to meet with team officials. Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been lobbying for the Bengals to sign Owens since the end of last season, when the Bengals' passing game lacked a deep threat. En route (at) Natti land!!" Owens tweeted. ''i'll let u guys know how the mtg went! Cn't go 2 bed considering the pursuit of tht Lombardi shiny thing!!" The Bengals went 10-6 and won the AFC North last season by relying on their. defense and their running game. They lost to the New York Jets in their first play off game since 2005, strug gling to move the ball. Cincinnati needs at least' one proven rece.iver after releasing Laveranues Coles, who lasted only one season with the Bengals.

Cult Leader Found Gulltv 01 Starving Babv To Death For Not savinuamen' QUEEN ANTOINETTE And RIA RAMKISSOON And Son, JAVON THOMPSON A leader of a cult in Baltimore was convicted of murder Tuesday after police say she convinced a woman to starve her 16 month old son to death because he would not say "amen" before dinner. "Queen Antoinette", her daughter Trevia Williams and Marcus Cobbs were found guilty Wednesday of second degree murder and child abuse resulting in death for the murder of Javon Thompson. Although an exact date is unknown, prosecutors believe the child died somewhere between December 2006 and January' 2007. The mother of Javon, Ria Ramkissoon who pleaded guilty to a child abuse charge last year, says Queen Antoinette told her the child had a "spirit of rebellion" inside him because he refused to say "amen" before meals. She instructed the mother to starve him to cure him of the "evil spirit" ultimately causing the baby to die. After the baby's death, Queen instructed the woman to "resurrect him" by dancing for him, singing to him and giving him water and when that didn't work the child's body was stuffed in a suitcase and toted around with the group until they moved to Philadelphia.

But it's wise to see a n ophthalmologist if yo u e xp e rience a n y of the following symptoms or problems: bulging of the eyes; change in iri s co l or; crossed eyes; dark spot in the center of your field of vision; difficulty focusing on near or distant objects; dry eyes with itching or burning; episodes of cloudy vision; eye pain; floaters or flashes; growing bump on the eyelid; halos (colored circles around lights) or glare; hazy or blurred vision; inability to close eyelid; los s of p eripheral vision; redness of or around the eye; spots in your field of vision; sudden loss of vision; trouble adjusting to dark rooms; unusual sensitivity to light or glare; veil obstructing vision; or wavy or crooked appearance to straight lines. Men And Digestive Issues D id \'lHI know that di art> mon' pre\'alent in 111en than in w o111cn? Here are four tin' that are com-1110 n in men and s uggestions for relief. Acid R eflux. The resul t of s tomach acid flowing up int o the esophagus, can cause burning pa in under th e breast bone, a sour taste in the mouth and sometim es regurgitation. The discomfort i s worse after h eavy meals, ingesting caffeinated drinks and alcoh o l and if you lie down too soon after eating. To h e lp prevent the pain of acid reflux steer clear of g reasy and spi cy foods, c hocol a t e, caffeine and alco hol. Also, be sure to eat dinner two hours or more before bedtime. Ulcers a r e painful, open sores that form on the stomach or duodenum (the uppe r part of the small intestine). For unknown reasons, ulce r s occur more frequently in men. In the past, ulcers were incorrectly thought to be from stress. But we now know that ulcers are caused by a certain type of bacteria, as well as overuse of pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen.

You could have a more seriou s digestive issu e requiring treatment. Food Poisoning is caused by bacteria in food usually sal monella, campylobacter or E. coli Most adult men recov e r in a day or two without a n y treatment as the toxins are flushed from the body. It's best t o let your body expel the toxins on its own. If yo u can keep anything down, sip clear liquids, especi a lly sports drinks, to prevent dehydration. If you're still camping out in the bathroom after 48 hours or if you develop a fever, ca ll your doctor: You could have a more serious bacterial infection. SCHOOL PHYSICALS STEPHEN A.

Here are seven benefits you can look forward to as the number of candles on your birthday cake grows. 1. FEWER COLDS AND OTHER VIRUSES-You're l ess lik ely to get sick with colds and other minor viral infec tions after midlife The reason : Each time your body is exposed to a virus, it develops antibodies that make you immune to that virus in the future. This means that more you age; the niore likely it is that you'll be immune to manybut not all-cold viruses 2. MILDER ALLERGIES -Pl. agued by allergies? They 'll be less bothersome as you get older. After age so, the body reacts with less intensity to hay fever and other seasonal allergies, perhaps because blder bodies produce less of the allergic an tibody. 3 DECREASED TOOTH SENSITIVTfY -If you've al ways had painfully sensitive teeth, they ll become less so as you age. That's because the surface between the enamel and nerves lays down more dentin (the tooth s inner hard tissue) as teeth age, resulting in extra insulation and a diminished pain response. This may make dE;ntal pro cedures less painful, too. 4 MINIMAL SKIN MAINTENANCE-Say good bye to problems with oily skin After age so, the skin s oil secretions slow down in both men and women. The shiny look that many people hate will start to improve. And you can shave less often and may stop using de odorant. Due to hormonal changes in the later years, the growth of facial and bod y hair slows and sweat glands disap pear 5 A FITTER BRAIN -Some memory functions, such as vocabulary and long-term memory, continually sharpen if you stay mentally active. Memory can be trained just like muscles. If you make the most of your memory and us e it regularly, that portion of your brain can actually get better as you get older In fact, research shows that memory skills can be honed well into old age. 6. A YOUTHFUL HEART -Surprisingly, the heart hardly ages at all and ac tually can strengthen-as long as you keep your cholesterol and blood pressure in check. Although there is some nar rowing of arteries with aging, the pumping ability of the heart stays strong throughout life in healthy people. Genes do play a part in the way your heart ages, but the healthier your lifestyle, the more likely your heart will stay strong well into your 8o' s and 90's. Exercise, diet and not smoking are more important than genetics in maintaining the health of the heart after age 6o. 7 BOTH MALES AND FEMAILES EXPERIENCE HEIGHTENED SEXUAL AWARENESS -A shift in the hormonal balance begin ning in the early -sos can in crease a woman's libido and her ability to have orgasms. Many women also report an increase in the frequency and intensity of orgasms as they grow older. In fact, some research sug gests that the frequency of or gasms increases for women in each decade, up until the octo genarian years (age 80-89). But men have reason-to cel ebrate, too. After age 6o, the ligaments that attach the penis to the bod y begin to relax. Assuming a man stays slim, this makes the flaccid penis look longer with each 6o-plus decade. and In th e lowl'r back rtginn I\) 0 ...... Oth e r in-o s uit.

AIGSenles Lawsuit for $1.1 Million Two subsidiaries of American International Group Inc. have agreed to pay $7.1 million to settle discrimination allegations of charging higher fees to African American borrowers. According to the statement released by the Justice Department on Thursday (March 3), 2,500 African American borrowers of subprime loans will receive a total of $6.1 million after being charged higher broker fees. Those unfamiliar with a subprime loan, it is the loan that is extended to borrowers who's credit rating is considered to be below standards or "poor." Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's civil rights division, said, the action "is a warning shot" to lenders who fail to monitor brokers conduct.

Former Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford was sentenced Friday to 15 years in federal prison for taking clothes, Rolex watches, loan payments and cash worth more than $240,000 as bribes in return for lucrative bond work. U.S. District Judge Scott Coogler imposed the sentence on Langford, 63, who told the court, "I am sorry all this has occurred." The sentence was about nine years shorter than tbe minimum term sought by prosecutors. Asked outside court whether he was pleased, Langford sneered at a reporter. "Are you?" said Langford, who claims he did nothing wrong. Langford and his wife have blamed his conviction on vindictive prosecutors, inattentive jurors and racism. Langford is black; most of the jurors were white. MAYOR LARRY LANGFORD Defense lawyers already are working on an appeal. Langford, a dapper politi' cal figure, was convicted in October of taking cash, loans and gifts including expen sive clothes and jewelry while he was president of the Jefferson County Commission. In exchange, prosecutors said, he steered county bond work to an investment banker who paid the bribes. .. '""''"'' Follow Us On iwiuer.corni FLSENTINELB
