Familv Seeking Help For Burial Of Slain Teen Instead of coming to a wake ceremony, the family of DeVante Lamar Dallas is encouraging the community to attend graduation on tonight (Friday), June 4, 2010, to join his graduating class from Durant High School. Graduation is being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds at 7 p. m. His mother, Mrs. Sunceray Dean, will accept his diplo ma. Although they will congratulate his class, they are grieving the death of the promising teen, who died on May 23, 2010 at the hands of another tee n. Dallas was attending a cla ss mat e's high school graduation party when an alte rc ation took place and h e was fatally shot. Also wounded were Jeffrey Thomas, 41, and Deron Richardson, 20. Khayri McCray, 18 a Clair Mel teen, has been c harged with second-degree DEV ANTE LAMAR DALlAS "Tae" murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder. He is being held without bond at the Hillsborough County Jail. McCray was scheduled to graduate from Richard Spoto High School this month Funeral services to cele brate Dallas' life will be held Saturday, June 5, 2010, 12 p m. at Mt. Olive M. B. Church, Plant City. (For additional information see funeral notices.) A memorial fund has been set up at Sunshine State Federal Loan Association, 2400 Jim Redman Parkway, Plant City, that will accept donations to cover the funeral expenses of the young man affectionately known as 'Tae.' Those who make donations are requested to refer to the DeVante Lamar Dallas Memorial Fund. Rumors Of Retaliation Hillsborough County Sheriffs Dept. spokesperson, Debbie Carter said additional security was in place at Spoto High School a few days after the shooting. There had been rumors of retaliation, however, she said the department was not able to substantiate those rumors and there have been no prob lems. Everything is back to normal at the school," she said on Thursday. Fitness Trainer's Familv Feels His Murder was Senseless Rodney Jones had enjoyed a night out at the Cotton Club in West Tampa last Sunday The fitness trainer was someone who was finally enjoying life when he was fatally shot in what polic e believ e was not a random act. Jones, 42, left the club early Monday morning and got into his car when he was approached b y 2 armed men. Police believe the men either knew Jones, or knew of him when they robbed and shot him severa l times. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made in the shooting. Daphne Stephens, Jones' sister, said her brother was a father, son, grandfather, family oriented, high spirited man and will be deeply missed by his family. "You really can t put into words what Rodney meant to us." "T h e message I want to send is about this street code of not s nit ch ing That's fine until it's one of your family memb e rs l ying d e ad. The fact i s young people today have no regard for human lif e or prop e r ty." RODNEY JONES Ms. Stephens said the senseless violence needs to stop I know someone knows who did this, and for them to keep silent is a sign of the times. To take someone s life for something that won't even last is just crazy. Nothing they could have gotten from Rodney was worth his life. Ms. Stephens said disturbed that other robberies have occurred around that loung e and nothing has been done to prevent them." Maybe if there wa & more lightin g or some kind of out s id e security, J?eople wou ld feel safer. "It's a shame that family values are gone: I hope the guilt of the two men who did this chews at them enough for them to step forward and confess. No street justice, but man-up and confess. Do the right thing. Ms. Stephens said Rodney loved famil y gatherings, and because he had missed so many in the past, he was looking forward to one they have planned for July. "He loved things that made people smile, because that's the kind ofman he was. " God has the power to con vict the most guilty of spirits, and that's what will happen with the people who killed Rodney." Jones was a graduate of Robinson High School and has four siblings, two sons, and two granddaughters. Ms. Stephens said Rodney has been into physical fitness for two decades and has tried to get family members to follow his path. Ray Williams Funeral Home wi.ll assist the family wi.th services this Saturday.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages o f this newspaper by Columnis t s or Guest Writ e rs. do not necessarily reflect the edito rial sta n ce ol The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publi s h e r The Drama Continues At Countv Center We are not surprised that Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin White and his sexual harassment case are in the headlines, again. Comm. White, who in case you don't know, is now suing the County, claiming he was not advised properly, therefore, loss his case because of it. Now White owes the county about $425,000, because the county's insurance company would not pay. The question we need to ask, is how much more time and money are WE going to lose dealing with the actions of County Commission members? A JURY decided that Comm. White was guilty of sexually harassing his former aide, then 24-year-old, Alyssa Ogden. And despite White's claims, and his own defense team, he was found 'guilty'. During this drama, only one Commissioner (Ferlita) was vocal about the case, and how the Board should handle it. All the others were in a 'wait and see' mode until the people blasted, blogged and emailed about the money hole being dug, and finally voted unanimously to make White pay. In case you forgot, the County was also named in this suit, and loss, as well. Ogden and her lawyer were paid; the outside lawyer that represented the county was paid. In these economic times, WHAT pot of County money did. this come from? Many who once supported Commissioner White, are wondering 'what has he done for us lately'. It seems most of his time is being spent on lawsuits, and p.r. ops, instead of the welfare of the district he should be representing. Comrn. White has hired a new lawyer, and the county has found a lawyer (that by the way sits on a board with new best friends, Comms. Sharpe and Higginbotham, and is an acquaintance of white's political opponent), who says he will represent the county for free ..... so the plot thickens. On top of this, why should we support anyone on this board, especially with all ofthe extra drama oflate? We all know about the very public firing of the county But little has been said about how the major budget cuts have put many longtime county workers out of jobs. Then there is the FDLE investigation initiated by Comrn. Kevin Beckner against the county administrator and the county attorney; which led the now fired county auditor to allege email tampering; which led Corum. Hagan to call for the firing of all3; which led to Comrns. Higginbotham and Sharpe to call for the suspensions with pay of the administrator and the attorney; which has led to a discussion of a very costly retirement package for the county administrator; which has led to the future of the county attorney being in limbo; which will probably lead to another lawsuit, all while these commissioners have hired very expensive OUTSIDE consulting and law firms, they don't listen to. This would be a great script for reality 1V, if we weren't all paying for it. Taxpayers have paid enough for this season of"As The CotJnty Turns". It's time 'we the people' write a new script and decide who stays and who goes. Because going to the polls is less dramatic and ifs FREE. 1\) 0 ..... we Are Going To Take Back Our Countrv 0 E very time I turn on the television, read the newspaper or listen to the radio there IS some nut using the media to say we must take back our country. I am confused when they say take back our country, the question that comes to my mind is take it back from who? I must have missed some thing. I didn't know anybody had our country. If someone has taken America from us, th e n I would agree. I just need to know who we are taking it back from, and who is going to be leading the take-back campaign. I hear Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh saying we need to take back our coun try, but the y don t say from who. Of course, I wouldn't follow these two to a mone y free-for-all. Neither one of these people know whether they are coming or going. They just open their mouths and let the hate and decep tion spew all over the place. I heard the tea partiers say we've got to take back our country but I am not sure what country they are talking about. They certainly can't be talk ing about America the way they conduct their business, and by the way, they want to restrict the rights ofU. S. cit izens and interpret the United States Constitution. Every move that the Fed eral Government makes that doesn t allow them to run roughshod over the country is an evil, diabolic plot de signed to destroy America. I hear certain Republican Murder! Bloodv Murder! Folk s in the barbershop won t be talking about pinochle this morning. The y won't be bragging about golf games dominoes or how somebody they know was seen with somebody else they know who sho uld NOT have been seen, at all. For, barbershop conversation, this morning is reserved for blood. Little boys eyes pop wide as quarters as grownups muse about mur der horrible and simple The barber is first to speak. "Well, did y'all read about my boy Rodney Jones?" Someone interjects "You mean Big, Muscular Rodney Jones ... the fellah what was a fitness trainer? "Yeah him, the barber re gains control of the conver sation. "Somebody shot him dead, right outside the Cot ton Club, the other night. The announcement, or reaffirmation of what most everyone who reads the Sentinel Bulletin has already known brings a torre nt of comments from everybody, but the children, who wait lik e stony-faced v ictims at the altar of a h a ir c utting sac rifice. "Maaa n I can't believe it! 'Boy just left the Cotton Club, got in his car and these two punks or however many it was just walked up o ut of nowhere and drilled him, execution style! Atte ntion shifts from the barber to a gruff-voiced man in the barber seat. Though his face is covered with shav ing cream, that doesn't stop him from commanding a l eaders hip role in the conver sation. I tell you, I don t give a durn what the newspapers say. Crime in Tampa is NOT goin down. If anything, it 's on the rise!" Somebody laughs and in terjects, Well if you talkin' about crime in the Black Community especially over here in West Tampa folks call this place 'Little Chicago."' Everybody laughs but it isn't a good laugh. Several children sit glassy eyed. No doubt, the y would like to ask questions. Most likely, they would love to know if any of the grown-ups seated around them knew Rodney Jones. Owing to youthful imagina tion the children would lik e to know whether Rodney Jones was a father, or a leaders and candidates for public office saying we need to take back our country, but they don't know what in the world they are talking about. They are just repeating what they heard Sarah; Rush and the tea party say. I hear the various talk show hosts saying that we need to take America back, but we know they will say anything they can as often as they can to improve their ratings. No! It does not have to be the truth. On the other hand, I wonder if those who keep saying we need to take back our country aren't playing "T1 the race card!

Before my incarceration, going to the beach was one of my favorite activities. To me, there was nothing like driving down the Gulf Coast and selecting some random waterfront area for either fishing, jet skiing, or just watching the tid e roll in and out. For y e ars I'v e day-dr e am e d about re-visiting some of those locations upon m y release. At time s my remi niscing becomes so in depth I can almost smell the dis tinct aroma of the sea breez e, see dolphins swimming offshore and taste the shrimp oysters served at any of the many fresh catch restauC rants in the area. a: u.. Recently though, when I've C watched the news or read the :i newspaper, I've been reminded that those vivid memories may forever en remain what they are .... Memories. t-That is because, just 6oo fi miles off the Forida coast, W one of the most devastating [j environmental disasters is c occuring. Since April 20, oil W has been spewing from a deep sea well at the rate of 2 :J to 4 million gallons a day. Ten times more oil than the ll. 200.,000 gallons originally Z reported. lij That means that from the ...1 time that the leak began, S right up until the point when I began writing this piece (34 uj days), some 70 to 136 million gallons of oil have been t-z w en released into the Gulf Of Mexico. And according to government officials and the company responsible for the catastrophe, British Petroleum (BP), sev e ral million more gallons will be r e l ease d b efore they can began a pro c edure that th e y hop e will s top the flow. To make matte r s worse, not only is this spill proj e ct ed to impact bodies of water as far away as the Arctic Oc ean and the Meditteranean Sea but the chemi c al disp e rs e m ent being used to break up the s li c k ca n pote ntiall y c au se more damage to the fragil e e co system than the oil itself. The worse case sc e nario for the Gulf Coast region seems to be happening right before our eyes. And I can only imagine how many environmentalist are sitting back, shaking their heads and thinking, I told you so," while building an even stronger case for their global green agenda As the event unfolds and experts detail the long term effects the oil spill will have on wild life, the fishing industry and tourism I can t help but reflect back to a scene from one of the most popular movies from the late nineties The Matrix When Agent Smith tells that h e hates humans because the y remind him of a virus, an organism that de s tro ys a n y environm ent it Wherever he' s gone things hav e been moved, r e -shaped and/or destroyed to fit his insatiable needs. And it's only when his behavior caus es so much destruction that his own comfort i s jeopardiz e d is wh e re he gives an inkling of concern to the d a mag e h e' s inflicted This oil spill is just the lat est e xampl e, along with over fishing, ov e r mining, ov e r populating and over constructing of how much dis regard we hav e for the habitat that sustains us. When I s ee signs or com m e rcial s projecting messages about saving Mother Earth, I alwa ys laugh at th e irony. B ecause, after all, it's not Mothe r Earth who n eeds saving. She's survi v ed collisions with celestial bodies, ice ages, earthquakes and who knows what else in her 4 billion y ears of existence. It's the little hairless mon key, the one who pillages her blood to power his cars and pollutes her body with his waste, who needs to be con cerned about what he's going to do or where he's going to go, when she finally decides she's had enough and does what she must to rid herself of the problem causing her s o much pain Florida Sentinel Bulletin Publishing Company Write to Clarence at: Clarence Barr, II 43110-018; Bennettsville F.C.I.; P. 0.

White Seeks Legal Fees In Lawsuit; Countv Accepts Free Representation BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor In recent years, it appears that Hillsborough County Commissioners are dedicating more time to defending law suits than to the day-to-day business of the county. In the lastest episode of the ongoing saga, Commissioner Kevin White has filed a lawsuit to obtain payment for his legal fees In a case that has the poten tial of dragging through the courts long after the current board members have moved on, Commissioner White was accused of sexual harassment by former aide, Alyssa Ogden. She named both Commissioner White and Hillsborough County in a law suit. Last August, a federal jury awarded Ogden $75 ,000 and attorney's fees. Due to a conflict of interests the board hired Attorney Claire Saady to represent them The legal fees in the case totaled n e arl y $ 425 ,000. The county th e n file d a claim with State Nation a l Insurance Company to recoup some of the losses. The county pays $5oo,ooo per year for coverage with a $350,000 de ductible. The insurance com pany paid the county $66,ooo. Commissioner Rose Ferlita led the charg e to file a lawsuit against Commissioner White in hopes of re couping some of the money spent representing the county. In April, State National In surance and Star Insurance Company filed a joint lawsuit against Commissioner White seeking to to get a legal ruling that Commissioner White is not entitled to any legal expenses. That case is pending. Earlier this week, Commissioner White filed a law suit seeking payment of his legal fees in the case. He is being represented by Attorney Michael V. Laurato, who was in court and una v ail able for comment. L ast week Attorney Richard Harrison v olun t ee r e d t o r e pr ese nt th e county p r o b o no, with th e exceptio n of d i rect cost. O n Thursday, Comm1sswners voted to accept Harrison's offer after ques tioning him about any ulterior motives and conflicts of inter est. When asked why he de cided to represent the County pro bono Attorney Harrison responded "It needs to be done. It needs to be con cluded. When asked about his rela tionship with Les Miller and his wife City Councilwoman Gwen Miller, who is chal lenging Commissioner White for his seat on the board, Attorney Harrison said he had not spoken with the Millers in nearly ten years "I have no political dog in this fight. Attorney Harrison agreed to report monthly to the board. He also stated that he expects expenses to be about $5 000. However he had re cei v ed offers of donations to off se t that c o st.

The question before the jury was Did Gold-E-Locks exercise bad manners in trespassing a nd failing to respect the property of the Three Bears?" The production helped students develop useful knowledge about the law and left them with an of the difficul ties judges, la wyers and juries face in attempting to present rel evant facts and legal arguments to insure the just resolution of the issues involved. St. Peter Claver student jurors returned a verdict of Guilty. Judge Wilson and his law clerks then answered numerous questions regarding law as a career.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter In 1996 Rev. Abraham Brown founded an organiza tion called Pastors On Patrol (P.O.P.). The mission of the organization was to unite area pastors who would in turn go into the streets, or wherever they' re needed, to improve the lives of African Americans. Rev. Dr. James Favorite, pastor of Beulah Baptist Institutional Church, is the Executive Director of P.O.P., and said they are planning a strategy to deal with the higher park fees, as well as other high profile problems that African Americans are facing. We are also planning to deal with the negative perspective by the school system and law enforcement on African Americans. "It' s time we hold our elected officials accountable, including.the ones runniRg for office. They forget they are supposed to serve us not themselves. Dr. Favorite said one place to look as an example of how big the gap is when it comes to fairness is the job market African Americans are dis placed at more than twice the rate of their white counterparts." Dr. Favorite said the pas tors who represent 96 area churches want to work with families in getting them staand create better environments for our children.

Honey is composed primarily of carbohydrates and water, anq it contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Honey has a variety of flavonoids and phenolic acids which act as antioxidants. There are over 500 varieties of honey and the darker honeys have a higher anti oxidant content than lighter honeys. In general, lighter colored honeys are milder in flavc;>r. while darker honeys are usually more robust. So for a sweeter summer, lineup some goodies made with honey, from breakfast to dinner, honey is truly a winner! P. S. The kids will love these recipes, too!

The conventional way of backing up documents by copying or dragging files over to an external hard drive is time consuming and some times even frustrating. Many consumers rather burn their all important data to cd s or dvr s which can be equall y frustrating if you are not using a solid practical DVD burning software Here are some suggestions to make your life easier. Recently, I gave Carbonite backup a test run and found it easy and less time demanding to put into ac tion.

, class of 2010 :;a Teenager Determined To Overcome Past Obstacles VAN BREIT WATKINS ... Determined to be successful BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor We have often heard that surviving ob stacles makes us stronger. If that is true, then one Tampa teenager is growing stronger by the day Van Brett Watkins had already expe rienced his father's making national headlines in connection with the planned murder of Cherica Adams. Ms. Adams was the pregnant girlfriend of former North Carolina Panther football player Rae Carruth, in 1999. Watkins admitted firing five shots into her car at the request of Carruth. Ms. Adams died a month later after giving birth to a son. Watkins and Carruth were both convicted and are currently serving prison sentences. The last time he saw his father was 4 years ago at the North Carolina prison. After that happened, Van's mother decided he needed a change of environ ment from his Queens, New York home, and sent him to Tampa to live with his grandmother, Ms. Andrey Watkins, and his uncle Andre Watkins. Then on February 15, 2010, Van saw his uncle, Andre Watkins, 53, on tele vision during a bond hearing. Andre Watkins is accused of killing a 19-year-old woman, seriously injuring two others, and several other crimes. He is currently awaiting trial. Incidents such as this may hav e had an adverse affect on most teenagers. However, Van decided to turn his fam ily s name into something positive Van came to realize that every person is responsible for his own actions and ob stacles can be overcome. His message to others facing devastating circumstances is, "You jus t don t give up hope. You keep going. You can fall down but you canalways get back up There i s always a noth er day to start over. Van played football for Leto High School for three years as a wide receiver and defensive e nd He started the l ast two years. After graduation, his plans are to attend Dean College in Franklin, Massa chusetts. Van plans to major in Criminal Justice and Physical Education After graduating, he wants to teach Criminal Justice to high school students and coach sports While at Leto, Van's determination did not escape the eyes of Ms. Mary Alice Kelley, his College and Career Counselor. In a letter to the Sentinel, she wrote, "With everything that has happened to Van, he displays the promise and vigor of a teenager with a bright fu ture, not the despair and hopelessness some might expect .... Van stays focused on his ultimate goal of going to college and playing football. All he needs is for someone to give him a chance." nselor Commen Graduating Senior Re: Van Watkins To Whom It May Concern: I am proud and honored to recommend Van Watkins forthls I can think of no other student who deserves recognition r something positive.
