More Than 400 Teachers Expected To leave School svstem BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter According to the Hillsborough County School District, they expect more than 400 teachers to retire at the end of the year. Assistant Superintendent, Lewis Brinson, said the instructors are leaving for a variety of reasons. "Among the reasons teachers are leaving is people retire, relocate, or their performance in the classroom wasn't what it should be. "We don'it anticipate having any problems filling those slots." Brinson said to some the number of teachers leaving may seem high, but when you realize there are more than 15,000 instructors in the system, you get a better perspective. "Overall, in my opinion, here was nothing political about the decision for them to leave, in spite of what's been going on in_ Tallahassee." School District spokesper son, Steve Hegarty, said a lot of the teachers are in the drop program and they will be leaving because their five years are up. "The circumstances for retiring keep changing. We have a number of teachers who've reached the age where they feel it's time to retire "Also, there may be a polit ical reason, with what's happening in Tallahassee with teachers now having their pensions threatened, not gaining any tenure, and being graded on their classroom performance. For some, that can create a stressful environment." Hegarty said the fact is, it's not unusual for this many instructors to be leaving at onetime. "It runs like a cycle. It's just that time again when a lot of them who came in together, are going out together." Hair Photography 813-322-4333


countV's Youngest Defendant Killed Irving To Stop Bar Fight JIMMY LEE CRUZ ... Surrenders To Police BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor A young man who made national news at the age of 12 was killed in a bar shooting. The shooting took place early Wednesday in the parking lot of the Interstate Lounge, 9301 N. Nebraska Avenue. The victim of the shooting, identified as Walter J. J. Revear, 28, was not involved in the fight, but was attempting to stop it, when he was killed. In 1995, the late Judge Diana Allen made national headlines after she refused to sentence Revear, who was 12 years-old to state prison time. According to police, offi cers received a 9-1-1 call per taining to a shooting shortly after 1 a.m., Wednesday. Upon arrival, they discovered Revear lying in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to his upper body. Fire Rescue pro nounced him dead at the scene. Police said an argument took place at the bar after someone threw a drink on an other patron. The individuals continued the fight in the WALTERJ. J. RE\I"EAR ... Hillsborough County Booking Photograph at age 12 parking lot. Revear, who was not in volved in the confrontation, was reportedly attempting to break up the fight. One of those involved in the fight identified as Jimmy Lee Cruz, allegedly went to his ve hicle, took out a gun, and shot Revear. He then fled the scene in a newer model red Dodge Charger. Suspect Surrenders Tampa Police issued a war rant for Cruz, 33, in connec tion with the shooting. He surrendered to police and was booked in the Hillsborough County Jail at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, after police nego tiated with his attorney, Michael Gonzalez.

Interstate Lounge where Walter "J.J." Revera was fatal wounded early Wednesday. Brother At Scene Roderick Revear, 24, said the only reason they were at the bar was because their sister, Kendra, had gone there. "We were trying to get a ride somewhere else. He said they had only been at the bar about 15 minutes. "We weren't doing any thing. We were minding our own business, just hanging out." Revear said the fight that occurred was between two women. He said another woman got into an argument with the suspect and the sus pect tried to pick a fight with a homosexual as well. "He was in a rage. He was trying to argue with everyone. "He (Revear) had just come home and we were to gether every day. He was try ing to turn his life around. He had finally got a break and set tle down for real. It wasn't about money or anything, but being free." Revear further stated that the fact that his brother is gone has not sunk it yet. "A single shot and he was gone. It hurts so bad I don't want to believe it. We have been like glue ever since he came home. He just wanted to enjoy life and smile a little bit," Revear said of his older brother. J. J. Revear was the son of Ms. Veronica York. His grandmothers are Ms. Etherine York and Ms. Helen Revear. In addition to his 2 brothers and sister, he is also survived by a 6-year-old daughter he has never had a chance to bond with, his brother said. Funeral services for Revear were incomplete as of press time. A Troubled Life Known as "J. J.,".Revear was last arrested January 6, 2009, but was determined in competent to stand trial. He was sent to the Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, March 1, 2010, after serving 498 days in jail. He was re leased from the hospital on probation April 22, 2011, records show. Revear first drew national attention with his arrest on February 15, 1995. The 12year-old was charged with 15 counts of grand theft auto, 4 b counts of robbery with a :2 firearm, and one count of esC caping from a juvenile facility. )> The Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office took Z the case before a Grand Jury.

..... ..... Q N 0 Features Commission Finds Probable Cause In Ethics Case a: LL BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently, the Florida Commission on Ethics ruled that probable cause existed in complaints against a former County Commissioner The ruling does not mean that any violations actually occurred Complaints filed against Kevin White by three Florida residents pertained to a complaint of Misuse of Position and two counts on issues in which he could benefit. The three complaints were consolidated into one investigation The Commission stated in its written report, "Based on the preliminary investigation, the Commission on Ethics accepts the recommendation of the Commission's Advocate c and finds that there is 0: probable cause to believe that LL the Respondent (White), as a C member of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, violated ..... Sections 112.313 and 112.3143(3), Florida Statutes, W by engaging in sexual harassment, by voting against > a: w > w c w ::I: en :::i m :::::1 11. z i= w ..J ..J :::::1 m ..J w z i= z w en c:r: c a: 0 ..J LL KEVIN WHITE ... Former Hillsborough County Commissioner a motion to file a lawsuit against himself to recover legal expenses related to the federal sexual harassment lawsuit, and by voting to rescind an earlier vote on the motion to file the lawsuit." The Commission ordered a public hearing to determine if the Florida Statutes were violated. During a federal trial, a jury ruled White had sexually harassed Alyssa white, his former Administrative Aide, and that he terminated her after she rebuffed his sexual advances. She was awarded $75,000 in damages and attorney's fees. Former Commissioner Rose Ferlita led the charge to file a lawsuit against white for the County to recoup funds spent during the trial. White voted against the lawsuit on January 21, 2010. The second violation took place February 3rd, 2010, when White rescinded his vote of January 21St. The ruling of the Commission on Ethics is a civil ruling. White could pay a fine and admit guilt, or request a full hearing. If he requests a hearing, the judge in the case can make a recommendation on how to resolve the case. The Commission on Ethics can accept that recommendation, reject, it, or modify it. The Commission on Ethics has five years to act on a complaint. Since White was defeated during the last election, the Commission could not recommend suspension or removal from office. However, the ruling carries no criminal sanctions. She Moved Through The Ranks To Become Vice Chair Of Democratic Executive Comminee SHARON CARTER BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor It wasn't what she attended Florida A&M University to study. But her involvement along the way has moved her through the ranks. Now, Ms. Sharon Carter is Vice Chair of the Democratic Executive Committee, Democratic Party of Hillsborough County, having been elected last month. Ms. Carter started working in politics while a student at FAMU. She was a Legislative Aide at the Capitol. "I got a chance to see how government works and that tweaked my interest," she said. After graduation, her first job was in Denver, Colorado "While there, former Mayor Wellington Webb appointed me to a special team." This position had her working on special projects around the United States that involved government in various capacities, "whether regulatory, compliance or permitting processes." Once she returned to Tampa, Ms. Carter became .involved with the Democratic Executive Committee, Hillsborough County Democratic Black Caucus, and Hillsborough County Hispanic Caucus. With these involvements, she quietly moved throughout the community encouraging and supporting others. "It is my objective to get the community involved for 2012 and to insure that we actively take a part in voting, the redistricting processes and education," she said. One project she's immediately focused on is getting involvement for the Democratic State Convention, which will be held in Orlando in October. "We are starting to work on that now and I want my community to get involved early." Ms. Carter is the mother of a son who is a second year student at a military academy in New York.

Countv Commission Redistricting Will Aftect Black Representation We know you care, but do you really understand? Yes, you. Do you understand the life-and-death importance of exercising your right to vote and to participate in a political process that is not going away because you don't believe it's real? In hopes that you hear us, we will continue to urge you to let our political representatives know how you feel about their decision-making before final action is taken. Today, we are encouraging you to attend and participate in meetings occurring throughout Hillsborough County during the months of May and June in which decisions will be discussed regarding drawing boundaries for Hillsborough County Commission districts. One such meeting will take place in the inner city on Tuesday, May 24th, 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. at the C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Public Library located at 2607 E. Dr. MLK, Jr. Boulevard. At that time, boundaries for districts must be redrawn to comply with federal requirements. How such boundaries for Districts 1 and 4 are drawn will greatly impact the representation and voting in the Black commu-. nity. Therefore, if you do not attend any of the meetings or public workShops to make comments on how the districts are drawn, then you have no reason or right to complain if our community ends up with no representation on County Commission. Call813-272-5275 or visit www.hills to record your comments. And you thought the struggle was over, 20 years ago? Think again! President Obama And Minister Farrakhan: An Immovable FriendshiPil 0 fall the information brought back from America's sucCessful campaign to neutralize Osama bin Laden, the most chilling material discovered was bin Laden's real intent to assassinate President Obama. The kidgloves had been taken off. The fact that Obama was Black seemed to have meant nothing at all to bin Laden and his generals. But we ask, "What would have such a plan meant to tens of thousands of men, women and children who formerly called themselves Black Musli:m,s and are now known as The Nation oflslam in the West? There is no doubt of the friendship between President Obama and Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan. In fact; Minister Farrakhan mice referred to President Obama as a "God-given leader with extraordinaryvision." Moreover, ht an interview; Farrakhan gave warning to possible foes of possible consequences should any harm befall America's first Black president Nevertheless, Farrakhan has not looked kindly on America's attack of Moamar Khadhafi and Libya, saying about President Obama on a radio program, "Who the Black Caucus Gening Readv To lead S tate Senator Arthenia Joyner, State Representative Betty Reed, County Commissioner Les Miller, School Board Chairman Doretha Edgecomb and City Councilman Frank Reddick have four things in common. Those four things are: They are all African American, they are all elected officials, they all have the responsibility to provide leadership for their community and they are all ready to provide that leader ship individually and collec tively through the Hillsborough County Black Caucus. I spoke with all of them with the exception of Sena tor Joyner who was out of town at this writing. They all understand how valuable an effective Black Caucus can be. Most importantly, they are all ready to put into play an ef fective Black Caucus. I understand that all members of the Caucus have talked to Chairwoman Joyner, and she will be call ing a meeting as soon as she can get a date that is conven ient for all members to meet During these times when Legislative bodies are passing all kind of crazy laws and cut ting budget items, the Caucus You Don't sav! I s it that the y think people are stupid? Or do they ac tually believe that they are the only people on the face of the earth endowed with com mon sense? Who are "THEY?" "They" are Professor Alan Abramowitz and staff of Emory University, who, just the other day, concluded that "Negative opinions of Presi dent Barack Obama are, in fact, influenced by racism." And for that eye-opening statement (ha-haah!), Professor Abramowitz earned a front-page article on a bevy of major daily newspapers. I bet you think I'm jealous. Well, I'm not. What I am ; however, is outraged and con fused. Would somebody please teJl me how something, which both Black people and white people have known for more than 400 years, could sud denly be treated as if it just got discovered, yesterday? Indeed, the dimension of arrogance set in order to pull off such foolishness should end up in Guinness Book of Records, or at least be toasted to a frosty Guinness Stout! No doubt, you've read the article, cut it out, and taped it over your medicine cabinet window, like I did. But in case you didn't,J. nen understand that the argument which fostered the Professor's research comes from a recent attempt by scholarly researchers to "Re-define Racism, as if the traditional definition of racism wasn't monstrous enough. Say they, the idea devel oped as a conclusion to a re cent poll administered by one of the most revered polling in stitutions in the nation, the so called American National Election Studies. ResultS revealed many white respondents who had low levels of racial resentment (which is a good thing) gave President Obama an aver age approval rate of 7 out of 10. But white respondents who registered a high level re sentment" (which is NOT a good thing) gave the President an of 3.2 out of 10. Shocked? Well then, listen to this: "Regardless of whether people called themselves Re:. publicans, DemocratS liberals or conservatives, the higher the racial resentment, the lower the rating for Obama." YOU'RE YAWNINGt I HEAR YOUYAWNING!. Perhaps, if I told you there s a growing belief that, though racism might have played a part in President Obama's flagging popularity among certain Americans, cer tain academicians don t be lieve racism plays a major role attention of the Caucus, gather information, do re search and participate in Cau cus discussions. They just won t have a vote. All of the members are in favor of this idea. I have com plete confidence in the abili ties of our elected officials. The Black Caucus has to lead and speak up for our community. Single-member districts were created to give Blacks and other minorities a chance to elect one of their oWn to represent them. There is power and re spect in numbers, provided those numbers are working effectively for the same goals. Lead Black Caucus and we will follow. Maybe not at first, but you just keep leading. ., r-0 ::2 in our country's thermometer c of t4eir Commander-in-Chief. l> Says an Indiana University en m professor, racial animosity z undergirds some aspects of ::f white resentment toward Z m President Obama, but the rquestion is not ho'W come, but m how much." C: Meanwhile, Republicans rand Democrats have once !!1 again drawn lines and squared z off as to whether certain of "D them don't like President C: m Obama because he's Black, or rbecause he's Black and eloCii quent. And now certain educa tional institutions in Anierica would solve our problem of racism, not by addressing the reality of our 400 years of physical betrayal and intellec tual schizophrenia, but would do what British author George Orwell did, more than a ha.If century ago, when he wrote the novel1984. They would change the definition of the word racism -itSelf. They have GOT to be kidding! However, unlike the so called Indians who let Christopher Columbus discover them and their home land, we African Americans are not so quick to allow our historical pain to be redefined. The definjtion of racism is branded into the history of our souls. We know why certain Americans dislike our current president. And it has nothing to do with the reinventing of definitions. However, maybe, when we colonize Mars, we'll get tired of that rat-like, loathsome word." Until then, I say to all academics and Tea Partiers, "Learn to live with the truth!" ::J: m c m < m -t c: m en c )> z c ., ::u 6 hell do you think you are?" Be that said and done, we.all realize that brothers have arguments, but they are still brothers. Though Louis Farrakhan is leader of The Nation of Islam, and though Barack Obama is President of the United States, they are, at base, two ,_ Black men in a world they never made. In essence, when the last card is down; they are )io all they have. So, what could shake a friendship that took 400 years to build? Perhaps, it would be easier to move a mountain into the sea.

And what makes them even more devastating are the long term repercussions that normally follow in their wake. One such tragic episode came to a partial conclusion recently when a young man by the name of Cedrick "Woo gie" Salter was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of shooting and killing the mother of his children as she held a child in her arms. I say it was partial closure be cause his conviction only ends one chapter in a saga that will, no doubt, leave a lasting im pression on all those whose lives were touched. Two sets of parents will now have to mourn the loss of a child. One was forced to bury their daughter in a cemetery grave. The other will soon see their son buried in the grave yard of the judicial s y stem. Neither will have an eas y time re-adjusting to their new lives as a result. And what of the youngest victims the children who are now orphans? Forever robb e d of the love and affection of their mother and now without a father in their lives, it may be decades before anyone can e v en try to gauge what kind of impact these events will have on them. The saddest part about these types of occur r ences is that they' re far from uncom mon. It seems like every week a newspaper or news broad cast is reporting on an inci dent involving a man killing a woman during a domestic vio lence dispute. It is as if some diabolical trend has been set into motion that no one seems to know how to stop. There was a time when a father looked into the eyes of his daughter s suitor, he was checking for the shiftiness of a weak character. Now, with what appears to be a signifi cant increase in the number of women murdered by the men in their lives, fathers must look even deeper to see if a killer is lurking inside as well. When the thought crosses my mind about my daughter possibly becoming involved with one of these deranged in dividuals, my jaws tighten thinking about what I would do iffaced with a similar situ ation. Since most of these men are fathers also I try to ima gine what goes through their minds when they prepare to do something so horrible to someone else s daughter that the y wouldn't want done to their own? I guess they don t believe in the power of Karma They don't realize how their behav ior could ultimately c a use their own children to suffer from the same abuse eral damage they bring upon their offspring From m y brief encounters with Salter a s a young DJ sharpening his skills he al ways came off as a quiet hum ble guy. So I can imagine him sitting in a cell regretting everything he's done that led to his current predicament But unfortunately, it's much too late. Nothing he can say or do will ever bring back the life he took. And even as he feels that things can t get any worse the hard part has yet to come. No, it will get much worse for Mr. Salter in 15 years when his children decide that they want to visit their father on their own terms. That is when they will have the courage to ask him face-to face, "Why did you kill our mother?" And even though years will have passed and he will have had ample time to prepare for this day of reckoning, I imag ine his answer will be then the same as it is now. He simply just won t know.

It is believed that more than to-face meetings create bogus identities, sometimes posing as teenagers. ..... half a million pedophiles are online every day. Pedophiles go where children are. Before the Internet, that meant places such as amusement parks and zoos. Today, the virtual world makes it alarmingly simple for pedophiles --often pretending to be teens themselves --to make contact with young people. Even without being some one's "friend" online, pedophiles can see a trove of teenagers' personal information because the youngsters often post it. For a pedophile, that per sonal information is like gold and can be used to establish a connection and gain a child's trust. There are two basic types of pedophiles: and those who anonymously collect and trade child pornography im ages, and those who seek face-to-face meetings with children. Those seeking faceThey look for youngsters with low self-esteem, problems with their parents, or a shortage of money. Then they cultivate a friendly online re lationship known as "groom ing." New Trend A relatively new trend among pedophiles is to begin grooming youngsters through online gaming fo rums, some of which allow two-way voice and video communication. Advice for Parents Parents should talk to their children; Monitor their children's Internet use along with online video gaming; Understand teens are notalways honest about what they are doing online; and Look for a second online space Youngsters often use a se cret Internet language to use when their parents are near: PAW or PRW: Parents are watching; PIR: Parents in room; POS: Parent over shoulder; P911: Parent emergency; or (L)MIRL: (Let's) meet in real life.

(Your Date and Time --Your Vehicle Or Mine) Tampa Bay History Tour Young Father oners Teen Dances As Pan Of The Solution BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Reginald Preston, Jr., has heard all of the negative talk about the way teenagers act. He has heard the stories of how fights start simply because of where a person lives. However, Preston feels that teenagers can come together and have a good time without fighting. "Hopefully, this will show the teenagers that everyone can come together and have fun. We're all from Tampa and it shouldn't be any problems because of what neighborhood you live in." A product of Tampa, Preston said he attended Krunk parties when he was a teenager and there was always a lot of fighting. He knows that he can't change the situation by himself, but he is willing to make a start. He feels that with enough security and the support of the community, he can suc cessfully host the dances. "I'm trying to bring it back and I hope that everything goes as planned. I think it can be done. People think kids are out of control. Some say I will never be able to do this. "This idea came to me while I was spending five years in prison. After I got out, I decided to stop being part of the problem and start being part of the solution," the 26year-old father of a daughter said. .. -Get-$10 -OffAny Two Or More 1 New Or Transferred 1 Prescriptions ._ _________ _..

When I met my wife, she taught me how to cook soul food, and I also learned from others along the way." i3 When Braaf shut down i: the grocery store, he started LL selling soul food and West Indian (Caribbean) meals. c( Now with the opening of Frank-El Soul Food and C Take-Out Restaurant, he m says he has created a place where everyone gathers to > enjoy the most flavorful and a: succulent home cooked meals of the south. w c w ::::i m National "What sets my restaurant apart from the others is I offer great food with fine dining," said Braaf.

"One of the first things I learned was there are a lot of people who can cook great meals at home, but when it comes to cooking for a restaurant, the food just doesn't come out the same. That's why you have to be very careful as to whom you hire to cook in your restau rant." Braaf has been open for 8 months at his location, 1441 Fletcher Avenue, Suite 111. He said although all of his feature dishes will be soul food, he'll still serve some West Indian dishes. "Our house specialty is our corn muffins.

"Hard Knocks" won three Sports Emmys for its portrayal of the New York Jets in last year's series. The show has been on the air intermit tently since its debut in 2001 with the Baltimore Ravens. In subsequent years, the Dallas Cowboys (2002 and 2008), Kansas City Chiefs (2007), Cincinnati Bengals (2009) and Jets have been spotlighted. "Finding and selecting a team for 'Hard Knocks' each year is a process," HBO spokesman Ray Stallone said. "We remain optimistic." Sugar Rav leonard savs Coach sexuallv Abused Him SUGAR RAY LEONARD In his forthcoming autobi ography, former professional boxer Sugar Ray Leonard makes a few unexpected accusations. In the book entitled "The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring," the exfighter reveals darker moments in his life, from cocaine use to growing up in a household with domestic violence and alcohol abuse to surviving a car wreck. Still, the most shocking account in the book is when Leonard reveals that he was sexually abused as a young fighter by an unnamed "prominent Olympic boxing coach." According to reports by the New York Times: Leonard writes that when the coach accompanied him as a 15-year-old and another young fighter to a boxing event in Utica, N.Y., in 1971, he had .the teenagers take a bath in a tub of hot water and Epsom salts while he sat on the other side of the bathroom. They suspected "something a bit inappropriate" was occurring, but did not want to question a strong male authority figure. Several years later, Leonard describes sitting i n a car in a deserted parking lot across from a recreation center, listening intently as the same coach, said to be in his late 40s, explained how much a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics would mean to his future. He was flattered, filled with hope, as any young athlete would be. But he writes: "Before I knew it, he had unzipped my pants and put his hand, then mouth, on an area that has haunted me for life I didn't scream. I didn't look at him. I just opened the door and ran." He adds that when he first decided to discuss the inci dent in the book, which is coauthored with Michael Arkush, he offered a version in which the abuser stopped before there was actual con tact. "That was painful enough, Leonard writes. "But last year, after watching the actor Todd Bridges bare his soul on Oprah's show about how he was sexually abused as a kid, I realized I would never be free unless I revealed the whole truth, no matter how much it hurt." Sugar Ray Leonard's book comes out on June 6th, and it will be interesting to read whatever the boxing Hall of Farner has written in his autobiography. Celtics' Rivers OK After Throat Surgerv BOSTON -Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers is recover ing from surgery to remove a benign polyp from his throat. The team said doctors told Rivers he is cancer free. Rivers joked that his family will be happy that he can't talk for two weeks. But he also urged all coaches to get their throats checked after the stress put on their vocal cords during the season. The Celtics were eliminated from the playoffs in the second round by the Miami Heat. Rivers signed a five year extension with the team last week. Tiger: No Knee Damage, Open Return likelv TIGER WOODS PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL-Tiger Woods says he didn't do any more damage to his left leg at The Players Championship and expects to play the U.S. Open next month. Woods made it only nine holes last week at The Players -his shortest tourna-ment ever -when he withdrew after nine holes because of what he described as a chain reaction of pain from his left knee to left Achilles and tightening in his calf He shot 42 on the front nine. On his website Monday, Woods said he irritated the knee and Achilles without making them worse. He said doctors have advised rest, cold water therapy and soft tissue treatment, which he said he already had been receiving. "Aggravating my injury is very disappointing," Woods said. "I'll do whatever is necessary to play in the U.S. Open, and I'm hopeful I can be there to compete." The U.S. Open is June 16-19 at Congressional, a course on which Woods won in 2009 at the AT&T National. I\) 0 I\) 0 ..... .....

Mav24,2011 Tampa Park Plaza Conlerence Room Doors Open 5:15 Seminar Begins @ 5:45 MavIs h Blood Pressure Group Meets To Discuss Founding West Tampa Organization BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Last week, an informal meeting was held in West Tampa to discuss its future and what to do to bring in more businesses and help the area grow. The main point of interest was the Main Street corridor, and Dwight Bolden, who coordinated the meeting, said they want to establish an or ganization that will sei-ve as a voice in the West Tampa community "When you say West Tampa, you're talking about a very large area, stretching all the way to the runways at Tampa International Airport," said Bolden. "However, our primary in terest is on Main Street and doing whatever we can to re store it to its past splendor." Bolden said he believes there is a breakdown of com munication between the West Tampa community and gov ernment. Cedric McCray, Legisla tive Aide to City Councilman Frank Reddick, attended the meeting and said the overall theme was a discus sion to stimulate growth and development along Main Street. "Some business owners were present as well as repre sentatives from area churches. We talked about the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership, and the need to have some thing similar in West Tampa. "It's going to be difficult, however, to get the funds needed for the various pro posed projects. The East Tampa group has Tax Increment Dollars (TIF) to .work with, and we don't have that in West Tampa." McCray said no mention was made of the West Tampa CDC, and none of its mem bers attended the meeting. Hillsborough County Branch NAACP !'resident, Dr. Carolyn Collins, at tended the meeting and said if you look at West Tampa, they still have a CDC. "I think funds need to be looked at equally throughout the city. We want to insure equity in West Tampa. "This was a meeting of the minds and very positive. I'm waiting for the next meeting, and I have no plans of being a part of a new organiZation. I think we need to pull what's there together and work with it. We must develop a funding source, and once that's done, we will see things changing in West Tampa." McCray and Dr. Collins both said there will be no help coming from other government sources when it comes to funds. They both said the government is undergoing budget constraints, and there's no extra dollars laying round. "There is a major void when discussions are made about the African American part of West Tampa," said Dr. Collins. "We're not even included in its history, and West Tampa is always seen from a Hispanic point ofview." Another meeting has been scheduled for Ju1,1e 8th, 8:30 a.m. at the Walter Smith Library on Cypress and Fre mont Streets.

,... School Lesson A New Beginning John' s revelation of the things to come was great. The church and the people of God must realize that what they see now is not the end. God is going to triumph and has already triumphed over all things. There is an end to all evil and false prophets. Jesus. Upon Jesus depar ture He said to them that the Holy Ghost would come and dwell among them. In John's revelation he is in structed that in the new city, God Himself is going to be with His people and He shall be their God (vs. 3). In that new day God is going to be with you. It is not going to be about angels and the prophets; it is going to be the personal presence of God. John record in Revelations 21:1-8; 22-27tells of the awesome things that are to come. John writes that he saw a new heaven and a new earth: the first ones were passed away (vs. 1). When God gets ready to reveal the new things, the old things must be done away with. There are so many people C trying to wait for the end of If this physical world; what is c necessary is for them to be as Z John, in the spirit, to see the On this earth there is much crying and many tears being shed. But in that day, God is going to wipe all tears from the eyes of His people and there shall be no more death, sorrow, crying or pain (vs. 4). God is going to bring great relief of all things. In that great day, psycholo gists will become unem ployed, funeral homes will close down, and pharmacists will have no place. w c w :I: en ::J m ;:) a. z i= w ...J .;,, ;:) m ...J w z i= z w en

Local Securitv Companv CEO Complains 01 Harassment To His Stan BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The Drew Park area is full of commercial busi nesses and a lot of resi dences. It also has become a favorite location for many of the city's adult entertainment businesses. In 2008, Hillsborough Community College purchased a large piece of land west of its Dale Mabry cam pus, and that site became known as Hawks Landing. A sec).lrity company, Allegiance security, was contracted by HCC to provide security for the residence of Hawks Landing. After stu dents complained about the activities of that company, Sable One Security was hired. Michael Hadley, CEO of Sable One Security, said the staff members he placed at Hawks Landing immedi ately started pointing out problems at the complex, and had documentation as well as photos of some of the problems. "We presented all of this to the Public Safety Office at HCC, and nothing was done," said Hadley. "As a matter of fact, instead of recognizing the problem, my staff members were getting harassed by public safety representa tives from the school." Hadley said he followed the "chain Of command" in addressing the problem, all the way up to HCC Presi dent, Dr. Ken Atwater. "I have no re sponse from anyone at HCC. I still have a contract, but I know that's being MICHAEL HADLEY ... Owner of Sable One Security DR. KEN ATWATER .. President of HCC threatened due to the com plaints I've made and their refusal to document fraudu lent incidents." Hadley said his staff has documented incidents of widespread drug activity, burglaries, robberies, and other unlawful acts at the complex. "We've provided their public safety office with pic tures, incident logs, and po lice calls to the complex. Still, nothing has been done to correct any of the prob lems. "I'm going on record as saying I think their treatment of my staff has been unprofessional. Their lack Allegations have been of interest also threatens the integrity of my company and I won't stand for that. "We aren't terminating the contract, but cutting back on the services.

National Pres. Obama Tells Memphis Students Their Success Inspires President Barack Obama speaks to graduates before he delivers the commencement address at the Booker T. Washington High School graduation at Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tenn., Monday, May 16, 2011. MEMPHIS, Tenn. Rewarded with the president of the United States as their commencement speaker, the graduating seniors at Booker T. Washington High School got the same advice a young President Barack Obama once got himself: Keep push ing. "You' ve always been under dogs," the president told the c heering students clad in g r ee n a nd yellow gow ns from a sch o ol wh e r e a c ademic s cores a nd gr adua tion rate s h a v e soared despite tough cond i tion s in th e communit y "Nobody s h ande d you a thing But that al s o m eans th a t whatever you accomplish in your life, you' ll have earned it," Pres. Obama said The high s chool won a national competition, and Pres. Obama's presence, thanks to its hard-fought academic turnaround. The school is in a gritty south Memphis community where many of its students live in tough neighborhoods beset by crime, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy and untreated mental illness. A majority of the students are poor, and some are homeless. Pres. Obama told the smiling seniors: "You've shown more grit and determination in your childhoods than a lot of adults ever will." CNN's Don Lemon savs He's GavIn New Memoir Don Lemon, a weekend anchor on CNN Newsroom, has a highly personal memoir coming out next month. It's called Transparent, and it will reveal, among other things, that Lemon is gay and suf fered sexual abuse as a child Lemon hasn't kept his sex uality a secret; his colleagues at CNN have long known that he's gay But as he recently revealed, he thinks the news will surprise a lot of peopleand he' s aware that "going public in his book carries cer tain risks. ''I'm scared, I'm talking about something that people might shun me for, ostracize me for." Maybe. But so far, at least, people seem to be rallying around Lemon. DON LEMON The Times notes that he has been assured of support by CNN "-the network has already booked him as a guest on Monday's edition of CNN Newsroom, and he'll be on The Joy Behar Show on sister network HLN this week.

If you are a small business owner or independent pro fessional you must consider making business networking a part of your strategic mar keting plan. Business networking is the act of connecting with other people for the purpose of creating and developing business relationships that provide reciprocal benefits for all parties involved. Busi ness networking gives you th e opportunity to increa se s a l e contacts or lead s bas e d on face-to-face introductions or referrals. The premise of busines s networking is that the busi ness relationships you forge will have a positive impact on your business revenue either immediately or over time. These business relationships should provide for a mutual exchange of ideas, informa tion and support. You should be marketing for others and they should be marketing for you. Thus you have a give and take, win-win situation. Here are a few quick tips The Good, The Bad And The Ugtv: An Overview Of Three Pieces Of Pending Federal legislation Many of you have con tacted us in the past few months requesting informa tion on any new legislation that has been introduced at the federal level during 2011. What follows is an analysis of such legislation. Each year, and 2011 will be no different, thousands of new bills are of fered i:n. the United States Congress. These bills range from a myriad of topics from defense spending to entitle ment programs. Most end by dying in committee or failing to gain enough votes to be come law In order for a bill to become law, for those of you too young to remember the lessons from our Satur day morning cartoons, both the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate must pass the bill and then the President must sign the bill into law. It is a tough haul on an uphill road. FYI This year there have been several bills introduced that deal with the area of federal criminal law. What follows is an overview and analysis of the most relevant bills. PART I On January 7, 2011, Sheila Jackson Lee intro duced H.R. 223, The Fed eral Prison Bureau Nonviolent Offender Relief Act of 2011". If passed, H.R. 223, "The Federal Prison Bu reau Nonviolent Offender Relief Act of 2011," would di rect the Bureau of Prisons to release individuals from prison who have served 50 percent or more of their sen tence if that prisoner: (1) is 45 years of age or older; (2) has never been convicted of a crime of violence; and (3) has not engaged in any violation, involving violent conduct, of institutional d i sciplinary reg ulations. The bill is intended for business n e tworking. 1. Listen to und e rst a nd your prospects probl e m s D e t e rmine if y our s e r vice ca n a s sist the m with their n e eds. If y ou can t help the m con n e ct them with s om e on e who c a n Help oth e rs and they will help y ou. 2. Be prepared when networking. Know wh a t y ou want and whom y ou want it from. You should be clear about how others can benefit y ou. 3 Follow up on any support you render or re ceive. 4 Always be a positive influence and carry your self professionally. Act with a code of ethics and standards. Business networking is about building relationships. If you build relationships you will build your business and your bottom line. to reduce overcrowding in federal prisons and give those nonviolent offenders over the age of 45 a second chance H .R. 223 was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on January 24, 2011. There is no companion bill in the Senate and the bill is not currently scheduled for con sideration by the House Judiciary Committee. OUR VIEW: Obviously this is a great bill that could positively affect the sentence of thousands of federal in mates. Criminal Defense Attorneys Mark J. O'Brien, Esquire and T.
