Miller Avenue for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony marked the completion of the N. 40th Street Enhancement Project. The $103 million project began 8 years ago during the first term of Mayor Pam Iorio's administration. Mayor Iorio launched the project after receiving numerous complaints about the condition of the then twolane roadway. The new project features a new four-lane roadway that covers the 4.2 miles from E. Hillsborough Avenue to E. Fowler Avenue. Among those joining Mayor Iorio were Gloria Smart, Moses Moore, Ruth Fleming, Rosanna McCullough, Pamela Bradford, Jerry L. Balloon, Bill Richardson, Ronnie Moorer, and Reverend Matthew James.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Monday, Mayor Pam Iorio, along with members of the community celebrated the completion of the 40th Street Corridor Enhancement Project. The event took place at the corner of N. 40th Street and East Miller. The 40th Street Corridor Enhancement Project spans 4.2 miles, from E. Hillsbor ough Avenue to E. Fowler Avenue. The planning study for this corridor was completed in 1997 and construction was completed in five separate phases. The 401h Street Corridor was one of the major projects undertaken during the Iorio Administration. It cost approximately $103 million to u. complete. The roadway has C been converted from the existing two-lane roadway with >-several turns into a four-lane divided roadway. It also has en sidewalks, bicycle lanes, bus shelters, landscaped mediI-ans, and street lighting. w > w c w ::J: en :J m :J a. z i= w ..J ..J :J m ..J w z i= z w en <( c a: 0 ..J LL Mayor Pam Iorio is shown with from left to right County Commissioner Mark Sharpe, Robert Scott, and Rev.

The three round-a-bouts are located at the intersection of N. 401 h Street and E. Yukon and N. 40th Street and E. Hanna Avenue. The third round-a-bout is located at N. 40th Street and E. Riverhills Avenue. Additionally, stormwater improvements, upgraded water and wastewater facili ties were part of the project. The enhancement was designed to increase vehicle ca pacity and to provide a safer environment for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Evening & Weekends Appointments Available Call24 Hours A Day Home & Hospital Visits Governor Signs Bill leveled At Teachers BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor It doesn t matter if Senate Bill 736 is defined as overhaul ing teachers or student success; the result is the same. It will dramatically change the man ner in which educators are hired, evaluated, paid, or termi nated. On Thursday Governor Rick Scott signed the bill into law. Among the things that will change under the bill that takes effect on July 1 t, includes the following: Evaluations Teachers will be evaluated using a scale of four levels for performance (highly effective, effective, needs improvement and unsatisfactory), instead of being evaluated as either satis factory or unsatisfactory. Defining Effectiveness At least half of an educator's evaluation will be based on stu dent learning gains for class room teachers, 30% for non-classroom personnel. Student Learning Existing tests, such as the FCAT and Advanced Place ment, will be used to measure student learning. In courses without existing tests, districts will develop or adopt assess ments to measure student learning gains. Earning More for Student Learning More Teachers who earn "highly effective or effective will earn more. Until 2014-15, all teach ers will be able to choose either the existing salary scale or a new performance based scale. Closing Achievement Gap Teachers in low-income and failing schools will earn more money as recognition of the more challenging teaching en vironment. Attracting Talent Teachers in hard-to-staff subject areas, like math and sci ence, will earn more money. Ending Tenure After July 1 of this year, new teachers will work on annual contracts. (Current teachers will maintain tenure.) Keeping Great Teachers Student performance, not seniority, will determine lay offs. Governor Scott said, "I am proud that the first bill I sign is this important legisla tion that will give Florida the best educated workforce to compete in the 21"1 century economy. We must recruit and retain the best people to make sure every classroom in Florida has a highly effective teacher." Senator_ Stephen Wise and Representative Erik Fresen sponsored the bill.

Feature -4 c: m CJ) c Judge Releases Video Of Police Shooting s: )> :IJ (') BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor What began as a routine traffic stop on the mornin g of June 29, 2010, l ed up to the deaths of two Tamp a police of ficers. Last Friday, a judge al lowed members of the m edia to view the video recording of the men s final moments. Defense attorneys for Dontae Morris fought to keep the tape from becoming public. The video camera mounted on the dash of Officer David Curtis' cruiser recorded the entire shooting. It was shown in the Hills borough County State Attor ney's Office. The media was only allowed to enter with a pen and paper. The video showed Officer Curtis stopping the vehicle for not having a license plate. The driver pulled over at N. soth Street and E. 23rd Avenue. Ms. Courtnee Brantley gave the officer her license. Her pass enger, Dontae Mor-DONTAE MORRIS ris, spelled his name for the officer. Officer Curtis was joined by Officer Jeff Kocab as he returned to the car and in formed Morris that there was an active warrant for his ar rest. Morris exited the car and was told to put his hands behind his back. Without warning, Morris turned slightly and fired twice in succession. He then stumbled over the falling officers as he made his escape. Both offi-OFFICER DAVID CURTIS cers were fatally wounded. Ms. Brantley drove off in the vehicle. Three women, Ms. Renee Roundtree, Ms. Delores Keen, and Ms. Rose PaulDodson found the officers as they were going to a neighbor hood store. They called police and stayed until help arrived. Morris surrendered on July 2nd. He has since been charged with the deaths of five people ---Derek Anderson, May 18; Rodney Jones, May OFFICER JEFF KOCAB 31; Harold Wright, June 8; Officer David Curtis, and Officer JeffKocab, June 29. It was later learned that the warrant for Morris was in Jacksonville for worthless checks. However, during the time the were opened and the checks written, ris was an inmate in the Florida Prison System. He was released in April 2010. Ms. Brantley was rested on a seldom used fed eral charge of not revealing :I: Morris' whereabouts to po-lice. The charge was later dis-N missed. The dismissal is currently under appeal. ...... Chief's Statement Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said of the : judge's order to release the dash cam video, "T he release of the dash cam video will bring back many e motion s for Dave and Je_ff's families, our officers and me. "We respect the judge's de cision and the media's access to Florida's public records; however, we see no public value in anyone viewing this video outside of a jury. While this will be very difficult for us all, we will get through this with the continued support of our law enforcement family and the community. "The Tampa Police Department will continue its thor ough investigation of this case and will bring to justice any one found to have participated in these murders." ., r-0 :IJ c )> z :::! z m r-aJ c: r r-!!l z

Homeless, But Harmless c 0: In an hour-long interview, which occurred while he u. was still a mayoral candidate, current Mayor Bob C Buckhorn explained to reporters that he would be "ten:i der" in dealing with the City's homeless issue. He said he hoped Governor Scott would not cut funding for the homeless, but concluded, "If the City Council doesn't deal with this problem, I will have an ordinance on their desk W addressing the issue." We commend Mayor Buckhorn for his sensitivity and > sense of responsiveness regarding the homeless issue. But we wonder what is to become of homeless individuals in our city who have no criminal record, or pose no .threat W to anyone, except, perhaps, themselves? Is our city set up C to give as much assistance to homeless persons whose only crime is the fact they may be vagrants squatting on en someone else's property? Or is Law Enforcement the only :::i agency with a plan to deal with folks who have no place to stay? D.. Us!lallY what happens, or so we're told, is when police Z officers do background checks on homeless persons and tij discover they have no prior record, no further assistance ..J is offered. Consequently, the individuals are left exactly ..J as.they've been found: without a place to stay, food to eat, or medical assistance. ..J We trust when Mayor Buckhorn officially tackles the W homeless issue, he will consider our question: What hapZ i= pens when the City deals with the homeless who have no z record and pose no physical threat? Hopefully, the new mayor's tenderness will show through. 4( c a: 0 ..J u. "="""-T_he_F_ro_u_S_tri_ke_s_A_ga_in____.l P erhaps, you've heard the story about the Frog King. It involves a kingdom of frogs that weren't happy with their present ruler. So, they prayed to the god-of-thefrogs to send them a potentate who would make things more exciting around their domain. And as prayer would have it, the god-of-the-frogs heard their plea and answered their prayers. But they didn't like it. For, instead of a more conservative frog, the Frog God gave his constituents a long-legged stork with a monstrous appetite. And guess who was on the menu? When we look at the most recent decisions of Governor Rick Scott, we are reminded of the story about the Frog King. Take, for instance, the bill Governor Scott just signed regarding state teacher tenure, payroll track and evaluation. Not only did he throw teachers under the bus, but he backed up and rolled over them repeatedly. In case you're unaware, starting July t, no new teacher will carry a contract longer than a year. Furthermore, (also as of July tst), whether a teacher goes or stays will be determined by whether that teacher's students are good or are knuckleheads. "D" schools and "C" schools may have to resort to hiring drill instructors, or Doctor Phil clones. In addition, teacher evaluations will be set on "highly effective," "effective," "needs im-::; provement," and (better known as "Lord e, Have Mercy") while Florida school districts ..must burn if midnight oil to develop fair pay rates for new teachers. Those Guvs Are Crazv! C all them conservatives, Republicans, Tea Bag gers, Right Wingers or any other names you may choose but don't forget to call them crazy. Whatever you call them, this left wing leading group is the wildest group this country has ever seen. These folks seem determined to shake and reshape all the core values of Amer ica. They don't seem to care who they hurt or who they destroy in the process, as long as it does not hurt the rich and the powerful. Today's right wingers pretend to be very concerned about the United States' growing debt. I agree that it is a concern and must be dealt with. I don't agree that it must be done in a matter of months. It took longer than months to get into this mess and it will and should take longer than months to get from under this strangling deficit. The Republicans /Tea Party gang seems bent on solving the deficit problem on the backs of certain peo ple and programs. They don't want to stop spending $2 billion a week on an unwinnable war in Afghanistan. But they are ready to all but completely defund public schools, destroy the right of public workers to engage in collec tive bargaining for their benefits, cut out needed social programs and further impov erish the poor and senior cit izens. They want to do all these things to the needy and give Moses White: Entrepreneur And Humanitarian I was blessed last Friday, to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly rebuilt Moses White Estates, a 69unit public housing develop ment in North East Tampa Some of you may not have met or heard about Moses White, local legend who left gigantic footprints on the his tory of Tampa and Tampa s Black community. However, if you did have the fortune to meet him, you would always remember those piercing, yet, gentle eyes that could peer into your soul and allow you to feel the straight forward, no nonsense good honesty of his words. When I arrived in Tampa in the 196o's, Moses White and his entire entrepreneurial family were widely recognized and respected. His brother, Chester White owned a serv ice station and his brother, Dothan White owned a landscaping company. No doubt, their family's humble beginnings fueled White's passion to help others. Having migrated from Georgia to Tampa, the White family and his brothers estab lished homes and businesses in the Tampa Bay area. To gether, they raised families of college-educated athletes, politicians, educators, entre preneurs, and business profes sionals. As an entrepreneur, Moses White established several businesses on famous Central Avenue and on Main Street in Wes_!: Tampa, includ ing the Palm Dinette and Cozy Corner Sandwich Shop. In fact, I remember while I was pregnant, waking up some:times at midnight and sending my husband to fetch one of those fried chicken sandwiches with that "special sauce" on it. The quote, "To whom much is given, much is required," befits this giant, Moses White. For, as a humanitarian, he fed many hun gry families during countless Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, including people who would walk in off the streets to his establishment I once saw him reach into his pocket and hand money to a man who was down on his luck. Later on, White became the owner of Pughsley's Fu neral Home A well-known quote by White, "'That. which you keep, you lose. That. which you give away you can forever use," epitomizes White's phi' losophy and actions. He was a big tax breaks to wealthy Americans who don't need them and didn't ask for them. The cry in the U. S. today i s jobs! jobs! jobs! People need jobs. Are the Republicans/ Tea Party interested in creating jobs? Then I ask you what are they doing to create jobs? The thing that amazes me about this group is that they put together their talking points and they all go with them. It doesn't matter to them whether or not their talking points are false. It doesn t matter whether facts prove them wrong. They just keep on telling their lies. You know, I believe these guys are crazy. I believe they have a superiority complex, that they can do what they want and. that they should destroy anybody that gets in their way. Not that it is true, but today Republicans/Tea Baggers believe that it is their way or the highway. I told you those guys are crazy. giving man in countless unher alded ways for which he never sought praise or notoriety. Indeed during the Segre gation era, White's Flamingo Rooms (a local rooming house) provided sanctuary for numerous Black entertainers, civil rights activists, and visit ing politicians when suitable hotel accommodations were closed to Blacks. White served as a power broker with lo cal politicians with whom he and other Black leaders negotiated policies and agendas favorable to the Black community. Many voter registration, education and "get-out-the vote" volunteers were fed by White's generosity. For, he worked tirelessly to ensure that politicians who were more likely to treat the Black com munity with fairness and equality were elected to offices Moreover, he offered words of encouragement to those of us on the forefront of our struggle. He single-hand edly funded and sponsored the first Florida Classic footba11 event. A father of children, he and his loving wife, Lucille raised their family in East Tampa. Indeed, White's en trepreneurial spirit was pa5sed ori to his children who success fully engaged in real estate, restaurant and nightclub own. ing, the newspaper industry, business administration, teaching and public service. Indeed the history of Tampa has been shaped by the name of Moses White. We say what all this adds up to is more confusion in an already cash-strapped, "Alicein-Wonderland" public school scenario. And what does Governor Rick (alias the Frog King) say about this? We don't know. For, the last time we tried to contact him, HEW AS EATING FROGS!

Local The African American Vote Made A DiHerence BY TAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer Preliminary numbers show the African American vote was a key factor in Tampa's may oral race. According to the Supervisor of Elections Office 42,541 resi dents cast a ballot in last Tues day 's runoff race That's more than 22 percent of registered voters in Tampa. A good chunk of those numbers were the re sult of a higher than expected turnout of Black residents. "It appears that the African American voter turnout was over 20%," says Mitch Kates, a v olunteer with Bob Buckhorn's campaign. "That number is a higher performance than in the March 1 Primary. [Dur ing that election] the African American turnout was about 17.5% Precincts 329 (Cathedral Of Faith Church) a nd 325 (Fair Oaks Center) recorded the largest numbers. Another factor, says Kates, was the apparent relentless ef fort of Buckhorn supporters in the final days and hours of polls closing Tuesday night. "T hey did what they could to get others to vote. I saw people at 6:30 p. m., 6:40 p. m. elec tion night calling their friends saying 'we have 20 minutes left, please go out and vote.' The people in the African American community .worked very hard because this race was that important to them." Kates. believes the final element was the connection the community has to the Mayor elect. "Time and again we heard from voters and resi dents in African American communities say that 'Bob Buckhorn has always been there' and that he never left. Savings Solutions.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several weeks ago, a youngster residing in Sulphur Springs was riding his scooter when he was attacked by two other boys. The boys beat him up and took his scooter. The incident was reported to police with not much hope of any thing coming of it. On March 131h, Royale McCoy Green, 11, was riding his scooter near his home when he was approached by two other boys. The boys punched and kicked Royale before taking his clothing and a blue Razor scooter. Members of the Tampa Police Department's ROC (Rapid c Offender Control) and patrol i: units investigated the robbery. LL Three days later, police arrested an 11-year-old and a 12-< year-old and charged them with robbery. They were both c charged with strong armed en robbery, but the scooter was not recovered. 1-> a: w > w c w ::I: en :::i Dl :::: c.. z i= w ...I ...I :::: Dl ...I w z i= z w en < Q a: 0 ...I LL. Under normal circum stances, the case would wind its way through the juvenile justice system. The judge would then have the option of ordering restitution. However, on Thursday, of ficers of Uniform District Two surprised Royale with the presentation of a new scooter. The presentation was made at the Tampa Police Depart ment's R.I.C.H. House, 8218 N. Marks Street. Royale's mother, Mrs. Rasheema McCoy Green said, "I live in the Sulphur Springs area and sometimes the community seems not to care about itself and the officers sometimes don't seem to care. I'm glad to see that I was proven wrong. "I called the police because it was the right thing to do, but I didn't expect for them to in vestigate it like they did. They have restored my confidence Royale McCoy Green is shown holding the new scooter presented to him by members of the Tampa Police Department. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Eric (Rasheema) Green, and his little sister are shown with him. (Photography by BRUN SON). in the police. It will also build my son's confidence. It has re stored him to see that the po lice are on his side." His father, Eric Green said, "Sometimes it seems like the parents don't pursue is. sues, the people are afraid, and the officers don t have time to investigate : Not only did we get justice, but the kids that did it will get information on the dos and don'ts in life. "I think it's important that the children are getting repri manded at this age and learn that what they have done is wrong before they get older and it gets worse. Hopefully, everyone will remember this incident," he said. Mrs. Green said this memory will remain with her son and he won't have a nega tive image of the police when he gets older. "We're not just raising children, we're raising men," she said.

Judge Rules In Favor Of Countv Over Legal Bills BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last Friday, U. S. District Judge James D. Whittemore said Hillsborough County can attempt to obtain money spent in a lawsuit. The County is suing former County Commissioner Kevin White for legal fees spent in a 2009 sexual harassment lawsuit. White sought dismissal of all claims against him. Ms. Alyssa Ogden filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against White after she was terminated. A jury ruled that both the County and White were liable, awarded her $75,000 in damages, and her attorney's fees of more than $200,000. The County's insurance pol icy covered a portion of the cost of the lawsuit. However, the county had to meet the $350,000 deductible. White filed a claim for his legal expenses, which totaled KEVIN WHITE approximately $157,000. However, the insurance company stated that White wasn't eligible because of the nature of the offense. The State National Insurance Company and Star Insurance Companies named White as a defendant in a lawsuit seeking clarification on whether he qualifies for re-imbursement. White filed a counter law suit stating that his legal fees should be covered by the insurance companies. AUDITIONS! AUDITIONS! AUDITIONS!

Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has caught a break. His budding soccer career, which even he admits is a long shot, has been extended to include a practice game with a Major League Soccer team. Sporting Kansas City has asked the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver to play in their reserve team's game on Monday against a local squad. Ochocinco, who says he actually preferred soccer until he was persuaded to focus entirely on football after the 10th grade,' began a four-day trial with the MLS team on Wednesday in part as a way to stay fit and keep busy during the NFL lock out. The Cincinnati Bengals star admitted he was rusty after so many years away from the game. He seemed nervous and a bit out of shape on his first day but a Sporting KC spokesman said he appeared much more comfortable dur ing his second practice.

Talking on the Ben & Skin Show on ESPN 103.3 FM in Dallas Friday morning, Sanders said that Bryant's actions at the mall were "ignorant" and said he needs help. "He needs help. He needs help," Sanders said. "I told the Cowboys from day one that he needs help. Matter of fact, they have a team in place to help him. But yol]. cannot tell a grown man what to do." Police said on Tuesday that security at NorthPark Center asked Bryant and his three friends to pull up their pants. According to the police statement, the 2010 first round pick went "into a profanity-laced tirade" and refused to leave the mall. Sanders, who served as a mentor to Bryant in the past, said that he has ended his relationship with the 22year-old and doesn't plan on speaking to him. Florida Collapses In Regional Final loss To Butler NEW ORLEANS Florida had a double-digit lead in the second half, was dominating in the low post and slowly suffocating Butler's secondstraight Final Four run. How it all went wrong will haunt the Gators for a long, long time. "I don't really know what to say," Florida guard Kenny Boynton said, his head lean ing against his locker and a blank stare on his face. "We didn't get a few loose balls, we were outrebounded and then just missed some shots. They just wanted it more, I guess. It's hard to explain." Shelvin Mack scored 27 points, Matt Howard added 14 and Butler came from behind to beat Florida 74-71 in overtime, denying the Gators a third trip to the Final Four in six seasons.

SP-orts Tiger Flourishes, Then Drops OH Sundav In Orlando TIGER WOODS Tiger Woods had a good round working Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational until the final two holes. He was 3-under par and working his way up the l eade rbo ard, but stumbl e d on 1 7 and 18. Woods bogeyed the par-3 17th and double-bogeyed the par-4 18th, knocking his second shot in the water on the latter, to close with a disappointing even-par 72. He finished at 1-under 287 for the tournament at the sun-baked Bay Hill Club and Lodge. "Very simple," Woods said, a six-time winner of the event hosted by Arnold Palmer. "I hit three water balls this week and missed a few putts here and there, and I'm not that far behind. Add all that together, you can't afford to make those mistakes."

Like millions of other fans around the country, Obama lost his last Final Four team and his national champion -when top-seeded Kansas was stunned by Virginia Commonwealth in the Southwest Regional final Sunday. Obama picked all four No. 1 seeds to reach the Final Four in Houston, but Pittsburgh, Ohio State Duke and Kansas have all been eliminated during a wild NCAA tournament filled with upsets No. 8 seed Butler will play nth-seeded VCU in one national semifinal Saturday. No. 3 seed Connecticut faces fourth-seeded Kentucky in the other one. Obama filled out a bracket for ESPN for the third straight year.

Unthinkable NCAA Final Four Heads To Houston All the top se ed s h a v e g on e home, all the "smart money" is down the tubes and millions of bra ckets are in the trash. Even in the unpredictable world of March Madness, this is a Final Four nobody could have imagined Kentucky, Connecticut, Butler and Virginia Commonwealth fill out a Final Four that, by most ways of looking at it, is the most unimaginable in the history of an NCAA tournament that has never lacked surprises. In one game in Houston on Saturday, No. 4 seed Kentucky will play No. 3 Connecticut. In the other, it will be No. 11 Virginia Commonwealth against No. 8 Butler. "Seeds are so overrated," Kansas coach Bill Self said, stating the obvious after his top-seeded team lost 71-61 to VCU on Sunday. "It's about matchups. And their players could play for us any day." Kentucky emerged from the weekend as the new Vegas favorite, at 8-s. VCU is 7-1 -the long shot again, though nowhere near the 2,500-1 pick it was back when the season started.

The issue divided the Re publican majority and Demo cratic minority in the lower chamber. Republican leaders called the legislation "Paycheck Pro tection while Democrats considered it a blatant attack on labor unions. The vote was 73-40 on the only legislation addressed on Friday. The bill prohibits the state, counties, cities and spe cial districts such as police and fire departments from automatically deducting union dues from paychecks. It also prohibits public employee payroll deductions for the purpose of political activ ity, including contributions to a candidate or party. Unions typically lean Democratic, and the massive teachers' and public employ ees' unions are a consistent pillar of support for that party's candidates. Republicans have argued that the bill is necessary to get the government out of the payroll deduction process while empowering workers to direct the use of their own money Majority Leader Carlos Lopez-Cantera, said pay roll deduction was an outdated method of dues collection in the era of e banking, PayPal and the like. The House's own staff analysis states that unions are likely to have more difficulty collecting dues from public employees under the proposed legislation. A companion bill is slated for two more committee hearings in the state Senate before it reaches the floor there.

"Your offending is in a league of its own," he at DELORY GRANT Woolwich Crown Court after hearing statements from Grant's victims and their families. The attacker broke into homes, cut phone lines and crept into the bedrooms of his elderly victims during ordeals that lasted for hours.
