Feature countv Transcript Anributes Statements To Wrong Commissioner -f c m en c }< c.. )> z c )> :::0 -< BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor In Frida y' s edition of the Sentinel, some comments about the Head Start Pro gram were attributed to the wrong commissioner. The Sentinel has since learned that Commissioner Kevin Beckner, nor Commissioner Sandra Murman made the statements On Wednesday, when contacted by the Sentinel, Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., referred to the last 30 minutes of the Hills borough County Board of Commissioners regular meeting held earlier during the day. On Friday, Commissioner Miller con tacted the Sentinel and stated that the comments had been erroneously attri buted to the wrong person . Upon further inspection of the transcript, it was deter mined that the comments had not been made by Commissioner Kevin Beckner, but attributed to Commissioner Sandra Murman, as the transcript indicated. The comments were taken from the County's video of the meeting and pre sented verbatim. Terry McElroy, who is the Technical Manager for HTV for Hillsborough County said, "The Closed Caption Transcriber types about 300 Real Time words per minute. She just didn' t change the name of the per son speaking when she turned the page. "The statement attributed to Commissioner Beckner was by Commissioner Les Miller. The file has been corrected with a high lighted paragraph identifying the correct speaker. The following statement is now correctly attributed to Commissioner Les Miller, Jr. "Les Miller, Jr.: "I ap preciate what all has been said by Commissioner Beckner and Commissioner Sharpe concerning Head Start, and there are COMMISSIONER LES MILLER, JR. .. Made statements about preventing Head Start from being privatized some concerns in the com munity, there are some con cerns of rumors going around concerning privatiza tion, and I think that a lot of this started before I got here. "But I heard it in the commu nity, and I think that one of the things that is a concern and --I might as well be up front, there is a concern that there is an effort between the Children's Board and this county to privatize Head Start. "That is a major, major concern out there .. .I think that one of the major pro blems has been that the Pol icy Council feels that there s information that has not been shared with them. "That's a concern they have, and before I got he r e you talked about some lan guage that you asked that the Children's Board work with the--with the county. . That wording or that discussion that appears to be the thorn in the claw is that there's an effort to privatize the Head Start Program with another entity, being the Children's Board. "And if that happens the efforts that this county puts forth, (not the readiness part of it because the readiness part is done by the Hillsbor ough County School Dis trict). But, the holistic approach of how you have families working with their children and the families get ting educated to raise the Investments & LCA Praductians TV Commercials Weddings Infomercials 3D Animation TV Shows Fashion Shows Web Video Video Clips Qulnceaneras Concerts Sweet 16 Conferences COMMISSIONER KEVIN BECKNER ... Did not make comments children to have a holistic ap proach is a concern that if privatization will not occur. That's the major concern ... Something has to be cor rected because we're in a sit uation now that this whole thing can mushroom and ex plode before we even can put our hands on it. So I think one of the major, major is sues that we've got to take a handle on and make it per fectly clear, that Head Start, COMMISSIONER SANDRA MURMAN ... Given credit for comments on transcript the Head Start that this county operates, will not be privatized, that's the major issue it's not going to be privatized. "That's the swirl of infor mation out there in the com munity. I know it. I hear it every day almost .... We're not going to privatize, we will continue to have a Head Start Program just as it is now . ... We're going to have to do somethin g to let th e peo;:: pl e know that w e are not 1\) looking at privatizing Head St a rt, and if we are I'm going .... to be the first one to start jumping on this table scr e aming and hollering why we should not," Commissioner Miller said. Commissioner Miller said during a telephone in terview that his major con cern about the Head Start Prp g ram is to preserve the services that it offers to fam ilies in Hillsborough County. The County educates not only the child, but the par ents and the entire family. It gets them ready for school and for the world. I feel that if this program is privatized these families will not be of fered those services. "This is a major, major "T1 concern. The services will not b come to the people who de:-:::0 serve and need 'them the most and I will continue to en fight for these people. Turn-ing the program over to the :::!

Sports BEAUTY UNLIMITED rn Asomugha Misses Incentives; Raiders Void 3-Year, S45.3M Deal NNAMDI ASOMUGHA ALAMEDA, Calif. --The final year in Nnamdi Asomugha's record contract with the Oakland Raiders is no longer in force because the Pro Bowl cornerback didn't reach certain incentives. Raiders senior executive John Herrera confirmed Sunday that the contract was voided, making Asomugha a free agent. Asomugha signed a $45.3 million, three-year contract in February 2009 that made him the highest paid defen sive back in NFL history. He was paid $28.5 million in the first two years of the contract. The Raiders had an option for 2011, which would be worth either $16.8 million or the amount of the quarterback franchise tag, whichever is greater. Asomugha's contract had a clause that said his contract would be voided if he didn't participate in more plays in 2010 than the previous year or improve his interception, fumble recovery or sack totals. Asomugha missed two games with a sprained ankle so did not reach the playing time incentive. He also had no inter-ceptions, fumble recovery or sacks He had one interception, no fumble recoveries and no sacks in 2009. The Raiders are not allowed to use the franchise tag on Asomugha to keep him in Oakland. The Raiders will now have to decide whether to shell out big money to keep their star cornerback or use it to shore up other positions Kobe Brvant: 'I Have verv little canilaue Under Mv Right Knee Cap' KOBE BRYANT A very prominent NBA columnist had an axe to grind with one of the great est basketball players in the world.

Because I have very little cartilage under my right: knee cap, it's almost boneon-bone," said the 32-year-oldBryant. In order to minimize the wear and tear, Bryant, coach Phil Jackson and the Lakers decided to have Kobe sit out during prac-tices this season. 360SN. 1Sth(comer0flake) 'Melo On Trade: 'I Don't See It Happening Right Now' CARMELO ANTHONY NEWARK, N.J.--The Nets are closing in on a deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey.
