Tampa Native Retires From State Government Bruce Meeks Oeft) and former Attorney General Bill McCollum. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Tampa native Bruce Meeks recently concluded a distin guished 31-year career in Florida State government. Prior to leaving public service in July 2010, Meeks was the Inspector General for the Florida State Board of Admin istration for over seven years. Before joining the SBA, Meeks served as Executive Deputy Attorney General in the office of the Attorney General of Florida. During his lengthy government tenure, Meeks oc cupied a variety of professional, legal and managerial positions. Before entering the senior ex ecutive ranks, he worked pri marily in the areas of personnel administration, organization development, program evalua tion, and policy analysis. Meeks began his career in local government with the City of Tampa in 1978 as a Person nel Analyst. He later returned to Tallahassee and worked with such agencies as the Depart ments of Community Affairs Administration, Health and Rehabilitative Services, and Revenue. Although MeekS left Tampa in 1975, he has not strayed from his roots. "I hail from the Central Park neighborhood. I attended Meacham and Potter Elemen tary Schools, Young and Sligh Junior High Schools, and Hills borough and King High Schools. I am a product of Tampa, all of my family still re sides there, and I come home several times a year. After obtaining his Associ ate of Arts Degree from Hills borough Community College, Meeks headed to Tallahassee to attend Florida State Univer sity. There he earned a Bache lor of Science Degree in Criminology in 1977 and a Mas ter of Science Degree in Public Administration in 1978. He took a leave of absence reer and returned to FSU to attend law school. He received his Juris Doctor Degree in 1993 and was admitted to the Florida Bar a few months later. Asked what he is most proud of in his long public service ca reer, Meeks reflected on his time in the Attorney General's Office. "My tenure as Executive Deputy Attorney General was definitely the high point of my career. In that role, I had the responsibility of managing all personnel and human resource functions, including increased recruitment of minority attor neys something I am very proud of "In addition, there was a new era of technology utiliza tion in the practice of law that began when I was at the AG's office It was fun bringing state-of-the-art, digital innova tions into a centuries old pro fession. Meeks said he has no plans of riding off into the sunset and sitting in a rocking chair. "I am too energetic and mo tivated to stop working, and I have too much to offer to let my experience and contacts go to waste." Meeks has entered private practice and is a partner'in the Tallahassee:-based law firm of Roberts and Meeks, P .L. He is the son of Rugenia "Jean" Meeks and the nephew of Rev. Willie G. Dixori, Jr. He has four children, two of them adults, and two siblings, Deborah McCullough and Kent Meeks. uThe Voice of Our Speaking for It'se1f"'7

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last week, a former Tampa police captain was op timistic about his bid for the City of Tampa Mayor's Office. However, recently he de cided to withdraw is name as a candidate. In a written press release, Marion Lewis said, "Effec tive immediately, I regretfully withdraw my candidacy from the 2011 Mayoral Elections for the City of Tampa. I filed my intention to run for Mayor in March 2009, in order to get an early start on other potential candidates. "I was hopeful that the pending litigation from Feb ruary 2007 involving the City of Tampa and I would have been resolved long before now / he said. Lewis further stated, "This very emotional and ex pensive litigation is still going before the 2nd District of Appeals. In order to mount a successful campaign for the Office of Mayor, it will take my undivided attention and all my available resources." In 2007, Lewis was a MARION LEWIS. ...

He said before filing for the office he had contacted the state elections office and was told he did not have to resign his job to seek the office. However, Lewis alleges that after filing for the office, he was forced into re tirement. "I was ousted from position on the Tampa Police Department Lewis filed a lawsuit and Judge Marva Crenshaw ruled in his favor. The City of Tampa appealed the judge s decision and Lewis filed an appeal with the Second Dis trict Court of Appeals. That ruling resulted in a split deci sion with the courts handing it back to the lower courts Lewis said they amended their lawsuit and appealed the lower court's decision on September 29 2010 : Now, they are waiting for a ruling from the Second District Court. At issue is whether the City of Tampa had the au thority to oust him from his job "The 27 years I served as a law enforcement officer serv ing the Tampa community were the best times of my professional career and I look forward to the opportu nity to serve the Tampa com munity in the future in some public service capacity," he said.

Congratulations and best wishes for demonstrating the improved economic and educational outcomes for a true residential move forward. EEOC warns Against Unfair Hiring Criteria E x-felons have historically had difficulty landing jobs. Indeed, during today's economic downturn, significant numbers oflong-term unemployed Americans have been out of work for so long that there is little doubt their credit scores have become almost microscopic. Consequently, if their credit scores are used a8 criteria for hiring, then it is unlikely long-term unemployed citizens would secure employment. However, thanks to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (yes, EEOC is still alive), prospective employers are being warned that they could be sued for refusing to hire Black people or Latinos because ofbad credit histories or because of criminal records. Yes, you read correctly. Citing the unjustified hiring standards as having an "adverse" or "disparate" effect on Blacks and other minorities, EEOC states that large numbers of minorities 'll:t would be wrongfully excluded from jobs. Even though W the use of the non-job-related criteria may not have i been intentional, the impact of screening out Blacks, I t just may be time for the federal government to have a serious conversation about legalizing marijuana. More and more, the move to legalize marijuana is gaining support. Contrary to what many may think, legalizing marijuana would not mean the world would come to an end. Remember when alcohol Oiquor) was illegal? Alcohol was boot-legged and sold all over the place. People made billions of dollars selling al cohol after daylight. Some of the alcohol sold either made people sick or killed them merely because of its unsafe content. Then the government dis covered that billions of dol lars could be made by legalizing alGohol and taxing it. At the same time, the gov-ernment discovered that it could better control the con tent and the distribution of alcohol by legalizing it. The same can be said of marijuana. Today, the dreaded weed can be pur chased on almost every street corner. Today, people are making billions of dollars selling the substance, after the daylight. The govern ment isn't making one dime off of these sales. In addition, the govern ment is powerless to control the content or the distribu tion of marijuana. Legalizing marijuana would make it safer and provide a source of income for governments. In addition, it would decrimi nalize the sale, possession and use of the substance. Law officials could be freed-up to track more seri-Emancipation Proclamation: A Strategic Political Move If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it. If I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that. What I do about slavery and the colored race I do because I believe it helps save the Union ... (Abraham Lincoln). Having just celebrated Emancipation Day (January 1st) over the past three days in remembrance of January 1, 1863-the day the Eman cipation Proclamation de clared that all slaves living in states that had seceded from the Union were to be ":thenceforward, and forever free," I am sharing Abraham Lincoln's words with you as a reminder that the Act and our freedom were strategic political maneuvers. Indeed, as the words spoken by Lincoln indicated, "slavery" and "preservation of the Union" were the key is sues of the Civil War. Keep in mind, Lincoln was elected to the presidency as a "racial moderate" in 1860 and had argued against the abolition of slavery to "Radical Republicans" during his campaign. Lincoln believed that the federal government had no right to prohibit slavery in the South, and that preserv ing the Union was the sole issue. Prior to issuing the Proclamation, Lincoln had made several !itlempts to avoid abolition. He spon sored the Confiscation Act of 1861, which freed slaves who had been used by :the Confed eracy to fight against the Union. Of course, the free Black regiments responded to the Union's call for them to fight for their own free dom. In September 1862, Lincoln offered slave o'Wners monetary compensation for ous crimes, the penal system will have a whole lot less peo ple to incarcerate, maintain and watch. This in itself will free up tax dollars to be used in other needed areas. Personally, I have never used marijuana in my life and have no plans to use it should it become legal. My chief concern with legalizing the drug is the potential ben efit. The law has not been able to stop people from using marijuana. No one has proven that legalizing the drug is any more dangerous than alco hol. What the government needs to do is to get off its sanctimonious high horse and realistically compare the real advantages against the real disadvantages. It's not just Black people or poor people that use mar ijuana. Some of the nation's finest use it too. In fact, some of those whose job it is to prevent others from using marijuana use it themselves. The time has come. You all need to talk. their slaves and offered freed slaves assistance for colo nization in Africa. Thus, the Emancipation Proclamation was the last and least desir. able political tactic used by Lincoln. Meanwhile, the procla mation only freed three fourths of the American slave population. Indeed, more than 8oo,ooo slaves living outside the Confederate states remained enslaved until1865. For them, slavery finally ended with the pas sage of the 13th Amendinent on January 31, 1865 (an in teresting story I will share with you later). According to one source, "abolishing slav ery was almost exclusively a Republican party effort -only four Democrats voted for" the Act Certainly, that our free dom was an "end that justi fied the means.!' and knowledge that Republicans puslled hard for the abolition of slavery are worth celeofat ing. However, every time we do so, let us be reminded that cle11rly our freedom was the result of strategic political moves rather than a compas sionate rescue. Never forget that the blood of both Blacks and whites paid the cost for our freedom. And now that you know the truth, Happy New Year and Harambee! Latinos and other minorities for jobs beComes an arbitrary barrier to gainful. em-. ployment. Thus, employers must be able to showthat a good ctedit history-and a clean criminal record are necessary in order to perfornl the.joh for which the candidate has applied. Such action is welcomed protection for American job seekers. _such action is the right thing to do.

Headstart C\1 ..;t >a: <( Countv Administrator Responds To Email About Head Start ::I z Since March of this year <( when the County Commis.., sion appointed me Admin-istrator, I have been C meeting with many in the ffi community to hear your ::::1 concerns and to find out t-how you see the role of c a: LL county government in providing essential services. I am grateful to everyone who took time to share their feelings, especially representatives of the County's Head Start Program. Head Start has been instrumental in building stable families and giving many children educational opportunities they otherwise might never have. Recently, concerns have been raised by some in the community about the future of Head Start. I want those who are concerned to know that I am committed to seeing that Head Start has the resources to continue pro-viding this essential service to the community. For Head Start to fulfill its mission, the program must be operated with integrity and with sound management practices. For the good of the families and children we serve, every parent, teacher and employee of Head Start must be committed to these goals. Unfortunately, accusations of mismanagement and misappropriation of federal grant funds have been brought to my attention and have been investigated. The findings of those investigations have left me no choice but to take disciplinary action against a handful of management and staff in the Head Start Program. As required by federal regulations, the Head Start Policy Council has been made aware of the disciplinary actions. In instances where termination of employment is warranted, the Policy Council must concur. That process is underway, and the affected employees will be dealt with fairly. These unpleasant but necessary disciplinary steps ensure that parents will have confidence and trust in those who manage Head Start and car-e for their children. And, it ensures that precious federal grant dollars will not have to be forfeited and paid back to the federal government by county taxpayers. Nevertheless, rumors that the County plans to "privatize" Head Start have been circulated to divert attention from those disciplinary actions. Let me be clear, there are no plans to turn the management and operation of Head Start over to a private company. What we must do as a community is find ways to deliver essential services, like Head Start, more effectively. This means providing better service to more clients at a reduced cost. And, I have promised that everyone in the community will have a voice in helping shape these policy decisions One possible way that the Head Start children and parents could benefit is through increased collaboration with the Hillsborough County School District. The School District already runs its own Head Start Program as a contractor with the County. Not only might such collaboration reduce duplication of certain services, but children and families may benefit from the strengths each program has to offer. In addition, as a community we may benefit by gaining access to more federal dollars by collaborating rather than competing. The Head Start Policy Council and parents will participate in any discussions that concern such collaborations or other alternatives to deliver improved service. To further strengthen a collaborative effort to pro-vide more effective services to children in need, the Children's Board of Hillsborough County has offered the services of one of its most respected senior leaders, Mr. Don Dixon, to assist the County over the next one to two years. The merits and terms of the proposed agreement between the Children's Board and the County Commission will be discussed in public. Although, Mr. Dixon will have no direct supervision over Head Start, his knowledge and talents will be available in an advisory role. The economic challenges we face call for a fresh look at which services government provides and how best to provide those services for everyone's benefit. As a community, I know we are up to the challenge. Respectfully, MICHAEL MERRILL County Administrator c z <( Head Start Chair Responds To Countv Administrator's lener C My name is Kevin Haney en and I preside as the current W chairperson on the Head Start Policy Council Commit>-tee within your district. I am a: also a parent of a child who benefits from the services w from the Head Start proC gram, thus I wear two hats w regarding my interest in the J: affairs of the Hillsborough County Head Start program. ffi I write in regards to your re::::1 cently distributed letter. c.. z i= w ...J ...J ::I m ...J w z i= z w en <( c a: 0 ...J LL This letter, dated December 29, 2010, was initially presented to me during an informal meeting with Mr. David Rogoff, Director of Family and Aging Services and representative of the Board of County Commissioners, and Mr. Louis Finney, Head Start Division Director. It is with utter disgust that I write this retort to what I believe, as a parent and a member of the Head Start Executive Policy Committee, Your letter conveys to those readers who are under the guise that you represent them and their best interests in regards to the management and staff of the Head Start Foundation. This should not be considered surprising information since this same sentiment was shared with Mr. Rogoff and Mr. Finney during our informal meeting. This letter introduces several points of grave importance that I believe you have purposely eluded to discuss, but expect full support of: -Accusatory language on an open investigation that still awaits affirmation of the suggested disciplinary action. -Suspicious language that suggests to its readers (the parents) that faulty leadership exists within the Head Start Program, thus they should be weary of those whom hold managerial positions on whether they are performing in an exemplary fashion. This point is cemented within your inclusion of the con-Baby Carrot (11b)-$0.79/each Cauliflower-$1.29/each Lettuce Cello-$0.79/each Pineapple-$1.99/each Bimbo's Soft Wheat or White Bread (20 oz)-$1.49/pkg Beef Brisket-$2.19/lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (1 0 lbs)-1.69/lb Chicken Leg Quarters (1 0 lbs)-$4.99/pkg Cut Chicken Wings Frozen (5 lbs)-1. 79/lb Turkey Sausage Roll Frozen (11b)-$1.15/pkg cern for the potential loss of Federal grant dollars. -Fallacious insinuations that the rumored "privatization" talks were orchestrated by those who are currently under some point of investigation due to alleged dereliction of duty, when in-fact substantial information from reputable sources show that these rumors regarding "privatization" should be of great concern to the parentS, faculty, and staff involved with Head Start. -(And Lastly) your cavalier expression in suggestion of the "Head Start children and parents" to consider an increased collaboration with the Hillsborough County School District. Yet you fail to expand the knowledge-base of your readers by explaining the potential ramifications of such an increased relationship, which is inclusive oflessened support services for the parents and the potential reduction of County dollars paid into the program that directly affects the jobs of staff members within the program, which the County would no longer be required to comply with because the Head Start program would no longer be a "County-run" program. And not to fail to mention the covert introduction of Mr. Don DiXon, whom is already slated as an agenda item, to approve the hire for, at the next BOCC meeting scheduled for January sth. As it is detailed in your letter, Mr. Dixon is to serve within an advisory capacity, although, other extenuating circumstances currently exist that would suggest that Mr. Dixon would have to take a much more integral part in the management and administrative responsibilities, especially in-lieu of the pending "disciplinary actions" of current managerial staff. Mr. Merrill, your behavior is egregious at best! Your overseeing of behavior that is devoid of sensitivity regarding sensitive matters, and acting as a catalyst to evoke undue concern to the benefactors of the Head Start program (the parents and faculty) by leaking sensitive information to the media, leaves very little of you to be comfortable with. As a member of the BOCC, you should be fully aware and overly expressive in your effort to apply the general courtesy of Shared Governance with the Head Start senior staff members and the inclusion of sensitive material with the Executive Policy Committee, of whom are directly responsible with educating the full Policy Council and parents of Head Start of what affects the Head Start program. Any one with an inkling of intelligence can see that a fiasco-of-sorts is being instigated and manipulated. I caution you to take a more candid look at the people who you claim to be an advocate for. The parents and the Head Start staff deserve better leadership from you. We cannot continue to condone this kind of behavior from you and your staff. We request "Full Disclosure", but will be content with being aptly informed regarding matters affecting Head Start. I look forward to addressing your council (The Board of County Commissioners) on January sth, 2011. Respectfully, KEVIN HANEY Chair

Bucs Finish Season With Big Win Over Saints c a: LL c z < c C/) w 1-RAHEEM MORRIS >a: w If you listened to sports > analysts during the preseaW son, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren't expected :I: to win more than six games, en and this was to be the final a:: call for head coach Raheem a. Z Fielding the youngest team WI-in professional football and the youngest head coach, the :j Buccaneers quieted all the ffi doubters by not only having a ...J great season, but coming w close to making the playoffs. Z Morris wanted 10 victories this year, and Sunday's 23-13 W victory over the New Orleans en Saints on the road gave it to ,i: them. Now, there should be 0: no question about Raheem 0 Morris returning next year as head coach. What made the Buccaneer season so amazing was they accomplished winning 10 games with 10 rookies on the field. The Bucs somehow managed to get past the barrage of injuries that put their starters on the sideline for the rest of the season. And, those injuries started before the halfway point of the season. In Sunday's contest quar terback Josh Freeman con tinued to win more support ers around the league with a performance that veterans with more experience could n't match. In only his second season, Freeman has elevated himself to be among the best quarterbacks in the league. Freeman surpassed 3,000 yards, threw 23 touchdowns and lowered his interceptions from 18 last season to 6. His 93.6 passer rating ranked him ahead of Drew Brees and Peyton Manning Rookie receiver Mike Williams proved himself a bonafide wide receiver and set the rookie receiving team record. Undrafted LeGarrette Blount rushed for more than 1,000 yards, scored 6 touchdoWns and finished in the top 10 in the league in yards-per attempt at 5.2. The support >is on to have Raheem Morris named Coach of the Year for putting a winning team on the field in spite of injuries to his vete rans. The Bucs wonit be sneaking up on anyone next season, but they will put a team on the field that will have to be reckoned with. Pres.Obama Praises Vick MICHAEL VICK HONOLULU --The White House says President Barack Obama has commended the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles for giving quarterback Michael Vick a second chance after his release from prison. Obama spokesman Bill Burton says the president told owner Jeffrey Lurie that while he condemns the crimes Vick was convicted of, he believes people who have paid for their crimes should have the opportunity to contribute to society again. Redski_ns Plaver Charged With lUI JOEJOSEPH. LEESBURG, Va. VVashington Redskins defensive lineman Joe Joseph was arrested on charges of driving under the influence early Monday morning, less than 24 hours after making his NFL debut. Vincent DiBenedetto, a spokesman with the Loudoun County Sheriffs Office, said Joe Louis Joseph Jr. was booked around 3 a.m. Monday after deputies responded to a report of a single-vehicle accident shortly after mid night. Hours earlier, Joseph and the Redskins had returned from Jacksonville following a 20-17 ove rtime win. Joseph played as a reserve in his first game as an active member of an NFL roster. He was later released on his own recognizance. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney. Leslie Frazier Reponed IV Will Keep Vikings' Coaching Job After changing head coach es during the 2010 season, the Minnesota Vikings won't be making another change to start 2011. Leslie Frazier, who became the interim head coach in 2010 when Brad Childress was fired, reportedly is about to get the "interim" taken out of his title. Jay Glazer reported on FOX the Vikings have made the decision to go with Frazier. Minnesota played at Detroit in VVeek 17 to close out its season. The Vikings entered Week 17 at 6-9, one game ahead of the last-place Lions in the NFC North.

Paul Johnson, the younger Van Exel's attor ney, said that his client told police he shot Eyo, a longtime friend and neighbor, while the two were engaged in "horseplay" with a shot-NICK VAN EXEL gun. He said Van Exel did n 't know the gun, which belonged to his stepfather, was loaded. After the shooting, Van Exel "panicked" and moved the body, Johnson said. Van Exel also tossecl. the gun in a creek, and it has yet to be found, he said. Johnson said he was con tacted by Van Exel's family on Tuesday and immediately started working with author. ities.

Bryant became assertive in the third quarter, scoring 17 points, looking for a way to push his team. "I just felt like. we had no energy," Bryant said "So I tried to generate some of that and just get us started, but we weren't able to carry it through." The problem? Bryant took 12 of the team's 22 shots in the third. "Kobe had to screw up the game and start energizing the team by going one-on-one," Jackson said.

The rapper was sent to the Flamenco Mental Health Unit inside the Alahambra Prison complex. While in the mental insti tute, DMX is not allowed to have visitors for 30 days .and must stay in a cell which can be compared to solit ary confine ment. DMX is serving the year in prison for violating his proba tion for drinking alcohol dur ing a concert, which led to later DMX testing that showed positive for cocaine and Oxycontin. Judge Christine Mulleneau.x has stated that the rapper may suffer from bi-polar disorder or some sort of men tal affliction, which could be the cause of his actions .

Gover nors granting early releases have sometimes imposed un usual conditions. But as far as anyone can tell, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour may be the first to require an in mate to give up a kidney to her sister. The unusual agreement has alarmed some experts, who have raised legal and ethical questions. Amorig them: If it turns out the sis ters aren't a good tissue match, does that mean the hecil.thy one goes back to jail? Barbour's decision to suspend the life sentences of Jamie and Gladys Scott was applauded by civil rights organizations and the women's attorney, who have long said the sentences were too harsh for the crime. The sisters are Black. After 16 years in prison, Jamie Scott, 36, is on daily dialysis, which officials say costs the state about $2oo,ooo a year. Barbour agreed to release her because of her medical condition, but 38-year old Gladys Scott's release order says one of the conditions she must meet is to donate the kidney within one year. The idea to donate the kid ney was Gladys Scott's and she volunteered to do it in her petition for early release. Even though Gladys Scott proposed the idea in her petition for an early re lease and volunteered to do nate the organ, Caplan said, it is against the law to buy and sell organs or to force people to give one up.
