-t Features c: Mavoral Race Turns Negative ROSE FERLITA On the eve of early voting, Tampa s mayoral race has turned negative. Outgoing Mayor, Pam Iorio, broke her neutrality in the race when she endorsed Bob Buckhorn, saying his competitor, Rose Ferlita, has taken a "negative turn" in the mayoral runoffs. Mayor Iorio's endorse ment comes a day after FerUta's campaign began airing television commercials criti cizing Buckhorn as an "elit ist" whose proposed economic plans favor the col lege-educated over the work ing class, and as a "career politician" and "failed busi-BOB BUCKHORN nessman" who was unfit to lead." The ads included a claim that Buckhorn had sup ported a policy "forcing police officers to keep their guns locked in the trunks of their cruisers" when he served as former Mayor Sandy. Freedman's assistant in the 1990s. Mayor Freedman said the claim is false and that the policy was imposed by the then police chief. Buckhorn criticized Ferlita during a forum for going negative and asked her to take down the commer cials. She declined, saying she stands behind the claims.

AnAnai.Ysis WhvBother To Vote; BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor During the last election thousands of people decided not to cast ballots. But, in that short period of time, new rules b y the Clemency Board has many it nearly impossible for others to gain their civil rights after being convicted of a felony. The process has always been cumbersome and time consuming, but other factors went into play last W ednes day. Now, instead of going through the process, ex-felons must wait five years before they can even apply for their civil rights restoration. Depending on the charge that person may hav e to re quest a hearing so that the Clemency Board can decide if the person is worthy of having his civil rights restored. Simply put, this is another form of voter suppression. Rather than go through the additional steps, most people will just abandon the idea to tally. Convicted felons make up a large segment of the general population and an even greater segment of the African American population. That is why it is imperative that those who can --VOTE! More people vote during a presidential election than at any other time. The next race that sparks any interest at all is the election for the state of fices. However, the elections that affect us most are the local elections because they affect our day-to-day living. Those who are eligible to vote should do so for those who cannot . For several years, South Tampa residents have deter mined the outcome in local elections. If people in other areas don't vote, they will con tinue to feel they have no voice in local politics. The right to vote should be taken just as serious as your right to live where you want, work where you want, and dine where you want. Why bother to vote?

Head Start Manager Fired Last week, a three-person committee met and it was de cided that Michael Jimenez should be fired. Jimenez was a fiscal manager at Hillsborough County's Head Start program and was fired for helping en gineer the agency s purchase of a book authored b y _his wife. County Administrator Mike Merrill, decided to fire Jimenez after a n int e rnal investigation last year accused him of using $9,000 in Head Start funds to buy 750 copies of "Travel Boy Helps Sebast ian. The book, written by -Jimenez's wife, Johana Melendez Santiago, teaches children about germs. The committee s decision to fire Jimenez overruled a January 13111 vote by the exec uti v e committee of the head Start Policy Council. Merrill refused to concur with the council's de cision to keep Jimenez on his job. So the next step was for the dis missal to be considered by a committee comprised of Louis Fenney, the Head Start Director; Dave Rogoff, Director of the County Family and Aging Services Depart ment, and Kevin Haney, chairman of the policy council.

Federal Raii.Funds Could Still Be Available The $2.4 billion allocated to Florida for a high speed rail line is about to be given away, but some state lawmakers be lieve the state could still have a chance td recoup it. On Friday, U. S. Trans portation Secretary, Ray LaHood, said he will make the money that Gov. Rick Scott has repeatedly rejected avail able to other states through a competitive process. The latest procedures LaHood revealed last week keep Florida's chance alive to secure high speed rail fund ing. The federal application clears a path for a regional transit authority comprised of officials from cities along the future rail route -Tampa, Or lando; Lakeland and Miami -to compete against other states without Scott's support. Without state approval, the rail authoritY would have to work in conjunction with an entity hat is eligible for the high speed rail funds either Amtrak or a rail authority al ready established by the state. U.S. Senator Bill Nelson said LaHood told him one possibility would be partner ing with a regional rail authority.to compete with other states that have been clamor ing for Florida's money since Gov. Scott first rejected it on February 16th. U. S. Rep. Katy Castor said she contacted lawyers Friday to ensure they were prepared to follow up on groundwork they laid to cre ate the concept for a regional rail effort to take over the project from the state after Gov. Scott's initial rejection. Business leaders, includ ing those with Republican ties from Tampa to Miami, supported Florida's hopes for what they see as a job cre ation and economic development boon in addition to the state's transportation outlook. Florida faces heavy com petition for the money, how ever. Factors to be considered in awarding the money in clude how quickly projects can deliver public and eco nomic benefits; how much energy consumption can be reduced; h9w well the effi ciency of a region's transportation network is improved, and how sustained economic activity can be gen erated along a high speed cor ridor.

It is believ ed that one pint of blood can save 3 liv es In 2010, Remington Col leg e collected 2,650 pints of blood, nationally, through the 3 Lives Campaign. Min01ity blood donors are in demand for several reasons. The best blood match for a chronically ill person who re quires multiple transfusions comes from a donor of the same ethnic background. African American provide blood with unique antigens, which can mean life saving treatments for people battling sickle cell, leukemia and other diseases. More than half of African American and Hispanic popu lations are Type 0 blood the most requested blood type. Changing demographics are increasing the need for more minority blood donors.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer When Jerry Donaldson started Expert Tax Service a year ago, his vision was to target the underserved population of elderly people and students. Donaldson said people on Social Security or Supplemental Security Income nor mally don't file their taxes, and don' t know they are missing out on money that could be used to help themselves and other family mem-bers. No one ever told our eld erly citizens that they could file taxes on social security or SSI income. Because they represent the underserved population they don't benefit from the services guaranteed to them. They don't know that they all qualify for refunds and just need to know where to go." Donaldson said the same thing applies to students attending adult school, technical schools, community college, and universities. I also focus on the self employed population, like barbers, hair salon owners, car detailers, and others. I've also gone to communities and talked to people face-to face to let them know what we do, and how they can take advantage of it." Donaldson said they will send a representative to you if you can't come to their of fice, and gift cards are given out to the first 25 customers. Expert Tax Service is located at 3804 North 29th Street, next to Woody's Cafe. Comedians To Perform At Birthdav Bash BY LEON B.

.,... U') .,... Harlem Globetroner Visits Tampa BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Throughout the history of professional sports, only one group of people completely revolutionized athletics, and at the same time provided an outlet for African American athletes. That group is called the Harlem Globetrotters. Originally known as the Savory Big Five, the Harlem Globetrotters were obtained by Abe Saperstein in 1926 in Chicago, Illinois. They played their first game January 7, 1927, and officially became the Harlem Globetrotters in 1930. Aundre "Hot Shot" Branch is entering his 8th season with the team, and recalled as a child when the team would visit his native a: Houston, Texas. LL "I found them very enter. C taining, and I wrote a school report on them. Now, with the experience I've gained as 0 a layer, I could write a book cn about them." Branch is in Tampa as the t-team will mark their 85th fi: season with their dazzling W Times The Furi" World Tour. They will be at the St. Pete c Times Forum Saturday to W showcase their world renowned family fun and ::J basketball entertainment. Also in celebration of their n. Bsth season, the Z Globetrotters will introduce l:ii a new groundbreaking bas..J ketball innovation, a 4-point ..J ::;, shot. m Branch explains that the uj 4-point shot will be taken 35 Z feet from the basket, 12 feet from the NBA 3-point line. ffi "We are trendsetters of cn everything you see today. ( The 4-point shot will eventuii: ally catch on with college and 0 professional teams." ..J LL AUNDRE "HOTSHOT" BRANCH Branch said although he played basketball in high school and ran track, he was better as a wide receiver playing football. "It was just too hot in Houston for football, so I thought basketball would better suit me." "Being a Globetrotter means you don't get to spend a lot of time with your fami ly, because you're basically working 10 months out of every year. When I do get to spend time with my kids, I pour it onand tell tbem I'm doing something positive and good, and just sharing God's blessing." Branch said to all the kids out there, he wants them to get their education, give no% all the time, work hard at being a great individual, and work hard on their skills. "Nothing worth having is easy. You have to be respect ful of others and mean it." To date, the Harlem Globetrotters have won 22,000 games and have competed and beaten some college teams, two of them were current NCAA champi ons. A former Globetrotter, Mannie Jackson, bought the team in 1993 as they were facing bankruptcy. He became the first African American owner of the team Ex-Basketball Plaver Gets 230 Years For Rapes DOMENIQUE WILSON The serial rapist who was convicted of raping a woman in Center City while her boyfriend was bound and gagged, was sentenced to 84 to 230 years in prison Thursday.

Wilson's sentence will be served consecutively with a prior sentence in Clinton County of 70 to 196 years in prison.

Altogether Wilson has been sentenced to serve 154 to 426 years in prison, according to the District Attorney's Office. Wilson was declared a violent sexual predator in court. Lebron James, Michael Jordan Sued For $150M Bv Lebron Jordan As confusing as this may sound, Lebron James and Michael Jordan are being sued by Lebron Jordan. CEO of shoe company Lebron Jordan Inc., Aaron Fraser insists that "Lebron"and"Jordan" happen to be the names of his godsons and he has a right to the moniker that is amidst legal controversy. When backlash and cease and-desist letters came at the upstart company, it seemed highly likely that they would fold quietly. Instead, LJI is suing the Miami Heat star and arguably the greatest basketball player ever for $150 million each cit ing that the two icons have damaged his brand. Reps for Nike and Live Nation threatened to sue the LEBRON .JAMES AND MICHAEL JORDAN shoe company and LJI believes that the negative publicity has injured their business deals. The company Lebron Jordan is financed by revenue from Fraser's Gotham Dating Partners Inc. and has suffered a loss of cus tomers since the issues with their name arose. The lawsuit claims that Lebron Jordan Inc. has every right to the name since it has not been trademarked Bills, Vikings lining Up For Cam Newton Two teams that appear very interested in Cam Newton are the Bills and Vikings. Bills general manager Buddy Nix and coach Chan Gailey both are southerners who love players from the SEC. And Gailey, who made his NFL name by turning .Kordell Stewart into a star, surely could figure out how to use Newton. As for the Vikings, they found Ne.wton charismatic CAM NEWTON in their talks with him at the combine. 4 Auburn Plavers Dismissed From Team After Arrest M. MCNEIL, A. GOODWIN, S. KITCHENS AND D.

It made for a quick improvement, as he used 28 putts Saturday and only 25 on Sunday. ''I'm peaking at the right time," laughed Woods.

"Mentally, I've been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it's bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your lives sometimes. You fight until you can't fight any more. That's all I was trying to be, a father in his kids' lives."
