Her son, Edward, said Mrs. Bryant called him on Sunday complaining about her back hurting. He called 9-1-1 and when he arrived at his mother's home, she was being transported to St. Joseph's Hospital. She suf fered an aneurysm, he said. "This was not something exp ected. She was not ill other than the usual prob lems that come with her age. She attended the Excellence in Awards program Thursday night and talked with friends on Saturday night," he said. During her tenure as an educator, Mrs. Bryant be came a pioneer in the Hills borough County Public School District.

-4 Features c: -If You Missed 11 ...... BY TAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer The UniverSoul Circus proved to be the hot ticket item in Tampa over the week end. The circus kicked off its 2011 National Tour during a three-day engagement at Ray mond James Stadium Those lucky enough to get a ticket to the sold-out shows enjoyed hours of entertainment that included breathtaking high wire acts, magic tricks that had many asking how'd they do that?" and soulful beats that appealed to every generation. WfMP Radio Personality, Randall 'C' has attended this circus with soul for y ears and says he has yet to grow tired of it. It excites me every time I act worse than the kids But what I like about it is the fam ily unity. Families get to gether and come out. Mothers, fathers, kids, grand kids." The show's next stop is Miami, then it's off to Atlanta. The UniverSoul Circus is not expected to return to the Bay Area for at least another year, but you can check out more pictures from this year's per formance on our website at www.flsentinel.com.

Coach Tonv Dungv Gives Students The Three R's To Success: Reading, Right Choices And Role Models BYTAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer Most of the students at Andrew Ferrell Middle Mag net School were just toddlers when Coach Tony Dungy reigned as the beloved head football coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, that didn t stop the kids from taking in all he had to say about life, choices, and the importance of working to wards a brighter future. One of the keys to it all, Dungy told the crowd, is the ability to read. "When I was in Middle School, I used to dream about being a profes sional basketball player. I never thought I was going to be a professional football coach, much less the first Black football coach to win a Super Bowl. But I definitely would not have been able to follow that path and do those things had I not been able to read." Coach Dungy spoke passionately about the im portance of reading to Fer rell's 6th, 7th and 8th grade students Friday during the school's Literacy Week celebration. Many of the students asked questions about Coach Dungy's educational and football career. Some even expressed their desire to one day, play in the NFL. Coach Dungy's response to them: read, read well, read everything, read often. "There are thousands of guys who can run fast, andf play, and lift weights, and juinp, and catch, but you have to be able to do all of that and read the material, (play books and scouting reports) and process that information. That's why some guys make it and some don't." In addition to the impor tance of reading, Coach Dungy also touched on the importance of making good choices and used the case of Hydra Lacy, Jr., as an ex ample. Lacy was the 39-year-old St. Petersburg man accused in last week's shooting deaths of two St. Pete police officers and wounding a U. S. Mar shal. Authorities later found Lacy dead in the attic of his estranged wife's home. Lacy is the older brother of World Champion Boxer Jeff Lacy. "Both brothers took two different paths," Coach Dungy told the stu dents. "I'm going to suggest there were two reasons for this. Number one, goals. What are your goals in life? COACH TONY DUNGY What do you want to do. It's very important, because I don t think you can end up here [gestures on top] if your goals are down here." Coach Dungy went on to say, "Jeff Lacy had high goals. Jeff Lacy knew very early what he wanted to do. He wanted to be a boxer, he wantedto be the best in the. world. He worked at it and that goal was always in his mind." Coach Dungy assured the students that even if they don't know what they want to do in life, the best way to stay on track is to set goals, asso-ACCID date with people who share their goals, and find role models who will keep them inspired to reach those goals. Gwen Luney is Assistant Superintendent of Schools for Hillsborough Comity. She attended Friday's event and says she hopes students real ize just how much the com. munity supports them in their educational success. Coach Dungy is the author of several books. Most recently, he. and his wife, Lauren, co-authored You Can Be A Friend, a children's tale that teaches the impor tance of being a good friend.

Tamper With Amendments m irl what next? Newly installed Governor Rick Scott z has raised eyebrows on several ofhis decisions i= since his inauguration especially his latest decision to ifi tamper with Constitutional Amendments 5 and 6. Re-0 ceQ.tly passed by voters with a more than 6o percent margin, Amendments 5 and 6 prevent gerrymandering D: of congressional and legislative voting district bound-0 ...I lL aries. Nevertheless; immediately after taking office, our new governor ordered. that Florida's request for preclearance of the Amendments 5 and 6 by the United States Justice Department be withdrawn. Understand: any changes to state and county voting procedures must be approve([ by the Justice Department prior to being implemented as protected by the Voting Rights Act. Critics claim Scott's action was taken to delay implementation of the amendments because the Republican congressional and legislative majority are expected to be reduced if the antendments go in:to effect. But the net effect of Scott's action and_ potential lawsuits would no doubt also delay enacting the redrawing of congressional and legislative boundaries 'in time for the 2012 elections. ,----------.--------------I I ,.!,\. \ >J. 4(t1f,, I ,; follow Us On l\\ it!t'r At Check Us Ollt On Facebook El '"' 1\.l\\ it!Pr.fom / F LSI \;FI H [f] i ----.. ----------------------------------------_1 It's Not Open Season On Policemen C itizens and especially Black citizens have not always been happy with po lice officers. The minute trouble comes, the first thing average citizens do is call for the po lice. Folks, we need the po lice If we think we have some high crime rates now, just think what the rate would be if we had no police officers. I don't know about the rest of you but, I am growing increasingly concerned over the number of police officers being shot by criminals. In addition to the number, it appears that people shoot police officers with so much T he history of Blacks in America would be in complete if we fail to nize the contributions of some religious groups and many white Americans who helped us through our strug gles from the beginning of the slave trade through the present day. We should never forget to honor the whites who were persecuted and gave their lives to insure our freedom and pursuit of equality and we should al-: ways include them in our written history and history celebrations. Since today marks the be..: ginning of Black History Month, I have chosen the Levi Coffin family, white Quakers who helped more than 3,000 Blacks escape slavery in North Carolina, In diana and Ohio during the 1700S. Mary and Levi Coffin, Sr., became involved in the opposition to slavery as newly farmers from New England to a large -Qual;<.er community in Guil ford County, North Carolina during the mid-1700s. Having been influenced greatly by the teachings -of John Woolman who believed slaveholding was not comease. They shoot without as much as a second thought. Think with me friends. If criminals can shoot a law man with so much ease; think how easy it is to shoot you. The news is filled every day with accounts of some body getting shot to death. Just as shocking is the num ber of policemen being shot. Criminals have got to un derstand that it is not open season on those whose job it is to protect us and to uphold the law. I realize that nobody wants to go to jail. I don't want to go to jail. Therefore. I subscribe to the philosophy that if you don't want to do the time, don't do the crime. patible with Quaker beliefs and who advocated the emancipation of the Coffins secretly hid and fed escaping slaves on their farm. Their actions fueled a passionate opposition to slavery in their son, Levi Coffin, Jr., the family member who rtui.de the largest contribution to helpingslaves. As a teenager, young Levi Coffin and his cousin, Vestal Coffin, started a Sunday School to teach slaves to read the Bible. However, pressure from slavehoiders soon closed the school. By the 182o's though slaveholders CO!Jld not prove the Quakers' in volvement in helping run away slaves, Quakers were being heavily persecuted for the help they suspected of giytng to slaves. Thus, by 1826, the, Coffins had moved their family t() ana. Soon after inoving to Newport, LeVi, Jr. arid his wife became prosper ous mill and owners and investors in the Bank of their wealth arid stantfutg in the communitY to fund (09<1; clothing and transportation I also want to remind you that if you kill a police officer, the chances are very good that you will die. You will ei ther get shot down by the po lice, sentenced to die by execution or get killed in prison. When you kill a po lice officer, make sure that you are ready to die also. Put yourself in the place of a policeman. Then you will realize that you've got a very serious job to do. Also, you will realize that your job is a dangerous one and that you risk getting killed every time you put your uniform on. It is important that police officers do their job in a re spectful and professional manner. It is important that we learn to respect the police and the job that they do. Police officers must not take any unnecessary chances. Guns are plentiful and easy to get. There are criminals out there who will use them. for the Rail road operations in the area. Indeed; he built a large brick home in 1839 with secret rooms and passages to hide runaway slaves. Coffin's wife, Catherine made cloth ing to help the shives themselves as cooks and other workers; : So great was Coffin's im pact on the fugitive slave movement that his home considered the "Grand Centr_ al Station" of the Underground Railroad and Coffin was nicknamed "President of The Underground Railroad" by slave catchers. Upon mov ing to Ohio, Coffin made certain his home in Indiana remained a "railroad stop" and his home in Ohio be came a new addition to the line. In spite of threats from slave catchers, boycotts of his businesses, expulsion from the local Quaker community, his refusal to sell goods made by slaveJabor and opposition from neighbors, con tinued his abolitionist work raising money and encourag ing others to become in-_ volved in the antislavery movement.

-t 1 ..... 1 c: Leaks Blamed For $44,000 Water Bill AI School BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last week, several resi dents attended the regularly scheduled City Council meet ing to complain about unusu ally high water bills. In some cases, the bills were triple what they normally were During the meeting, Brad L. Baird, Director of the City of Tampa Water Department appeared and assured Coun cil members that each loca tion that received a high bill would be reviewed. One of those locations was Middle ton High School, 4801 N. 22nd Street. The school had been given a bill for $44,000, which is more than three times higher than normal. The cause of the unusual amount of water usage was attributed to leaks. Steve Daignault, Ad ministrator of Public Works and Utility Services, and Baird, outlined the problem at the school in a report to City Council on Tuesday. The report stated, "On January 19, 2011, we in spected this location. The meter was indicating a huge leak. Investigations found seven severely leaking toilets (these toilets were continu ously flushing and did not stop). Additionally, we found five leaking showers. All problems were shown to Mid dleton's Energy Conservation mentor. By January 21, 2011, all leaks were repaired and water returned to normal." Derrick Gaines, Assistant Principal of Administra tion at Middleton High School said the school does not receive a monthly bill. But when they were notified that there was a problem, a representative from the school and the city toured the campus in an attempt to lo cate the problem. Steve Hegarty, spokesman for the Hillsbor ough County Public School District said, the leaks were confined to the concession stand near the football field. "Now that it is no longer football season, the conces sion stand is somewhat of a remote area. Now, we're working with the City of Tampa Utilities to adjust the bill. The city has been really accommodating about this." Hegarty said the normal water bill for Middleton High School averages between $10,000 and $11,000 per month. savings Solutions.

A Black Arvan Brother This column may seem strange today because I'm going to take a position that will place me in agreement with an unlikely organization, the Aryan Brotherhood. Normally, ABs (as they're known in the prison system), and I have nothing remotely in common as far as ideologies are concerned. But in this instance I have to admit, their gripe is valid It seems that this group of white supremacists is up-in arms over Marvel Comics deci sion to cast actor Idris Elba (Stringer Bell from HBO's TV series The Wire) in the role of the super hero, Thor in an upcoming movie. Their problem with the film makers stem from the fact that .in Nordic, Viking mytholog y dating back over 3,000 y ears, C Thor has always been depicted il: in northern European counLL tries, like Scandinavia and Iceland, as the archetype of white strength and purity. As a deity, he was worshipped as the god of thunder and the son of Odin, the creator of the uni verse. He was so revered that the Romans associated him with the Roman god, Jupiter (Jove), and even named a day of the week in his honor. "Thor's Day" or, as it's now known, Thursday. Needless to say, the idea of Elba, a Black man, portraying a character so emblematic to those who believe in the superi ority of the white race, has ruf fled more than a few feathers And as I mentioned, I understand why. -As a student of history and a lovei: of my own culture, I despise revisionism of any kind. And to see Hollywood, once again, try to pass an icon ic figure off as something he clearly was never intended to be seen as, is clearly reprehensible. Lest I'm misunderstood, I'm not siding with racist who wouldn't spit on me if I was on fire for the sake of political cor-rectness. I empathize with them only because I can truly relate to the anger that comes with seeing something you hold sacred to your identity desecrated for the satisfaction of others. It would have been easy for me to sit back and observe this story from a distance, laugh and think to myself, "Now they know how we feel every time we see ancient Egyptians por trayed as Caucasians. But I know this thing goes much deeper When it's understood that these studio executives vet every detail of a project before they green light the hundreds of millions it takes to produce one of these films, a person can't help but assume that someone knows exactly wh a t they re doing when they bl a tantly decide to alter the racial ethnicity of a well known fig ure, mythical or otherwise. The only question becomes, What's their ulterior motive? Are they openly trying to mess with the minds of people who they know, know better? Or, are they deliberately twist ing facts to confuse future gen erations, while setting the stage to take liberties with even more historical individuals later? Not to sound like a conspiracy nut (if that's even possible at this point), but this could just be a test run to see what the y can get away with. A giant first step down a slippery slope that leads to a place where accuracy doesn't matter and everything is subject to change in an effort to fit the agenda of the story teller. It may seem like a small issue now, but in 50 or 60 years when they make a movie about the Barack Obama Presidency, who's to say they won t try their hand then as well? Our great-grand children may be introduced to a Chinese, Arab or even Polynesian version of the man we knew as the first "Black" president. Never say it can't happen, because if they were bold enough to pull this off, there s no way of knowing what they may be capable of.

B Y GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Ms. Alison Hewitt, r e centl y e lect e d chair of the Hill s borou g h Ar e a Rapid Transit (HART) Boa rd of Directors met with the S e ntin e l Editorial Board on Wednes day. She was joined by David Armijo, CEO of HART, and Steve Rosenstock, Man ager of Marketing. This was Ms. Hewitt's first meeting with the Edito rial Board since taking over the chairmanship of the 12member board. She talked about the direc tion the agency is moving to wards after the 1c sale tax for light rail failed in the November election. Most of HART's funding comes from ad-val orem taxes, she stated. Although the year will be difficult, Ms. Hewitt said none of the services to their constituents will be affected. Customer service is a prior ity, she said. As a matter of fact, she added that there is an increase in services offered at night. With the loss of the tax, Ms. Hewitt said there have been no layoffs. The agency has added 15 buses and 6o employees over the past 3 years under the leadership of Armijo. "Any cuts that have been made have come from the top," she stated. Armijo added that the agency has not raised fares. Ms. Hewitt said the agency is in the process of union negotiations. As the MS. ALISON HEWI'IT new Chair she proposes to start an Employee Leadership Committee, where each sec tion of HART has a represen tative that will collectively work on policy changes and leadership training Ms. Kay Andrews, Chairma1,1 of the Sentinel Ed'itorial Board brought out a concern about how passen gers are getting information about changes or additions to services. She suggested con necting with neighborhood organizations to discuss changes, as opposed to show ing a lot of maps that passendon't understand. In addition to passengers, Ms. Andrews was also con cerned about the drivers. HART has over $73 million in capital projects underway. One is the Metro Rapid North South that will travel along Nebraska Ave. The advantage of this service, which goes into effect in 2012, will be sig nal priority. "Our challenge is to keep HART under wraps ... and we have to listen to the commu nity as we move ahead," Ms. Hewitt said. Citv Has No Place For The Homeless BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Last Thursday City of Tampa Director of Growth Management and Development Services, Cynthia Miller, presented a report to the Tampa City Council re garding the homeless Ms. Miller's report specifically addressed the possibility of utilizing city owned properties for a homeless shelter and service area. We h a v e review e d our a s set r e cords for va cant buildings and h ave not id e n tifi e d a buildin g that would b e s uitable for e mer g enc y or tra n s ition a l housin g for hom e l es s i ndividu a l s o r f a m ili e s." "Unlik e the county that h as a social service progr a m we don't have funding for transitional housing The so lution to this problem would be to follow the model set in San Antonio, Texas and get the business community to step forward and invest in a homeless shelter and service area project The project in San Anto nio is called Haven For Hope, and Mayor Pam Iorio will be hosting a meet ing later this month to share information on the facility. In Ms. Miller's report, she presented information related to r e cent funding for organizations that serve homeless individuals and families The funding for thes e progr a ms comes from vari ou s federal grants including Community Dev elopment Block Gr ant Funds the Neighborhood Stabilization Programs, and the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re Housing Grant. "The most critical part of providing any building to house the homeless and pro vide them services will be whether or not citizens want it in their community. That has been the biggest stum bling block in efforts by the city and county." The majority of city owned properties are located within inner-city communi ties. Due to the growing number of homele s s people in Tampa, Mayor iorio has been studying ho w other cities have handled the prob lem, what information she could bring to Tampa that w ould help create the fund ing necessary to create a place for the homeless.

OWN's all-dayviewership is up 25% over the year-ago au dience for Discovery Health, the channel OWN claimed when it signed on Jan. 1. Christina Norman, the network's CEO, calls its first month "an encouraging start" and declares "The idea works." "The audience understands what this is supposed to be," she said from the network's Los Angeles headquarters. "It is not a network built around a person. a network built around a person's world view." That person, of course, is Oprah Winfrey, who is end ing her weekday syndicated talk shoW this Spring to con centrate on her cable startup, which is in So million homes. An average of 297,000 view ers are watching OWN in prime time, with an average of 145,000 viewers tuned in dur ing the full day, according to Nielsen Co. data measuring the network from Jan. 1 to Jan. 23. CHRIS BROWN LOS ANGELES --Chris Brown has completed a do mestic violence counseling program required as part of the singer's guilty plea to as saulting then-girlfriend Rihanna nearly two years ago.

As a result of completing the required coun seling, Brown will no longer have to appear in court every three months for progress re port hearings Brown is serving five years of probation after pleading guilty last year to assaulting pop star Rihanna. The judge said she would consider lifting the protective order against Brown at a later date. The order requires Brown to stay at least 100 yards away from Rihanna. Apologizes for Tracv Morgan's Palin Joke TRACY MORGAN TNT offered up a mea culpa to former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin after Tracy Morgan made some, urn, below-the-belt remarks about the Mama Grizzly during a live pregame broad cast of "Inside the NBA." So just what did he say that was so bad? Things got rolling when the hosts were chatting about who was hotter: Sarah Palin or the funnyman's "30 Rock" costar Tina Fey (who won an Emmy for her spot-on satirical portrait of the half-term Re publican governor turned tube personality). That prompted Charles Barkley to say, "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?" Not one to shy away from speaking his mind, Morgan went rogue: "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin-she's good masturba tion material." "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments," a TNT spokesman said. Taraji P.

King is aligned with al entreprenuers, including Donn Clendenon Jr., son of the 1969 Mets World Series MVP, and TV execu tive Larry Meli. If successful, the 53-yearold King would be Major League Baseball's first African-American owner. He currently runs the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta.

"I'm not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change," Drew Rosenhaus said Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011, and he will play very well. And it will be a very happy ending to a very tough, tough story for him." Titans RB Johnson Stunned Bv Fisher's Depanure CHRIS JOHNSON KAPOLEI, HAWAII Tennessee star Chris Johnson was stunned by coach Jeff Fisher's depar ture from the Titans. "It was a surprise;'' the run ning back said Friday after Pro Bowl practice "I thought it was going to be the quar terback (Vince Young) or the head coach and it was actually both of them. So I guess we're kind of 'in the rebuilding process." The Titans have decided to either trade Young or release him later this offsea son. Eagles Reponedlv To Tag 'Franchise' Michael Vick The Eagles' plan at quar terback is reportedly begin ning to come into focus, as the team plans to apply the franchise tag to Michael Vick and entertain trade offers for Kevin Kolb, according to Adam Schefter. If the Eagles tag Vick, he'd be under contract for 2011 at the average salary of the five highest-paid quarterbacks in the league under the current rules surrounding _the fran chise tag. It is unknown how a new collective bargaining agreement would impact the tag. Kolb, on the other hand, would be perhaps the best quarterback available in the offseason, and could command a very good return from a needy team. If the Eagles choose to keep him, he'll be playing for a very palatable $1.4 million. MICHAEL VICK The Eagles faced a similar situation entering last sea son, with Kolb entering the season as a starter. But an injury in the season's first game forced Vick into action, and the story of his season is well-known. Vick never relinquished the starting job; electrifying the league on the way to his fourth career Pro Bowl in his second $eason removed from prison. Woodson To President: 'See You At The White House' GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson said he got on President Barack Obama's bandwagon a few years ago. So as far as Woodson is concerned, there's no reason the world's best-known Chicago Bears fan can't back the rival Packers in the Super Bowl. Obama was in Wisconsin to give a speech on the econo my Wednesday, and was given a Packers jersey signed by Woodson with themessage, you at the White House. Go Packers." Obama had said he would attend the Super Bowl if his favorite team made it. Instead, the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday and presumably would make the Super Bowl winner's traditional visit to the White House if they beat Pittsburgh in the Feb. 6 game. CHARLES WOODSON Woodson said he voted for Obama, and jokingly suggested that meant the President owed it to him to back the Packers. "I jumped on his bandwagon a couple years ago and voted for him," Woodson said. "So for him to only go to the Super Bowl because Chicago's there, I thought it's not fair to me. I'm a voter, I'm a taxpayer. So I wanted .1 him to root for the Packers as well." Celtics' RiVers .. LOS ANGELES Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers has been fined $15,000 for leav ing the court too slowly after being ejected from a game in Phoenix. Rivers' fine was announced Sunday morning befpre Boston played the Los Angeles Lakers. Rivers was tossed during the second quarter of the Celtics' 88-71 loss to the Suns on Friday night. He wasn't certain DOC exactly what RIVERS he had done to earn the fine, but didn't mind it. Rivers says coaches don't know how much time they have before they'll be fined for leaving the court too slow ly. He jokingly suggested starting a 30-second clock after an ejection to entertain the fans. Rivers also says the light ness of the fine indicates the NBA wasn't terribly angry.
