HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Thursday morning, members of the Hillsborough County Board of Commission agreed to negotiate a severance package for the County Attor ney. The decision came about after a luncheon with former Commissioner Kevin White became a point of contention. Several Commissioners stated they had lost trust in Attorney Renee Lee. Calling the luncheon a "flagrant neg lect of duty," CoUJ,missioner Mark Sharpe led the charge for termination. He made a motion that she be terminate her with cause. However, he was unable to enlist any sup port for a second. Commissioner Ken Hagan also echoed a loss in trust and made a motion to ne gotiate the ending of her con tract. Commissioner Victor Crist pointed out that the issue of money was not the only concern. "We have a lot of issues to focus on ... We must take into consideration that this can be challenged .... The media is not a courtroom and it is not the best source of facts." Commission Chairman AI Higginbotham, along with Attorney Rich M c -C rea, who is representing t h e County, and At-torney ATI'ORNEY RENEE LEE Bob McKee, who is repre senting Ms. Lee, retired to ne gotiate the amount of money Ms. Lee will receive upon ending her contract. Included in the negotia tions are the legal fees Attorney Lee incurred during the infamous FDLE probe Commissioner Kevin Beckner spearheaded last year. He stated that the most recent in cident, coupled with the FDLE report, should be enough to warrant termination with cause. Commissioner Hagan said, "It is quite clear to me that Kevin White set Ms. Lee up, and is trying to do whatever he can to strengthen his case. The problem is this is not an isolated incident .... But I do not believe it is a slam dunk." Attorney Lee said, "Let me assure you that I have not compromised my ethics or the lawsuit .... In all fairness, this requires more than accusations ... ... After the story was reported as a cozy lunch and that we were all alone in La Gaceta, I was angry. I called Kevin and demanded that he get the story straight .... Look ing back, Kevbl just wanted to discredit me," she said Attorney Lee further apologized for the miscommu nication earlier and admitted the luncheon was planned. Accepting her fate, she said, "I work at the pleasure of the board. Relationships come to an end and we may be there today." Attorney Lee requested that if her contract was to be terminated, then she wanted it done respectfully and swiftly. After listening to Attorney Lee's account, Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., said, "She has explained that she has made a mistake. If there is one of us here who has not sinned or made a mistake, throw the first stone." Attorney Bob McKee stated that if the board voted to terminate Ms. Lee with cause, then theJ;"e would be future lit igation. He also out that iflitlgation took place, the County would have to use Kevin White as its witness. Tampa Man's Death Blamed On Bath Salts On Thursday, authorities determined that the death of 23-year-old Jairious McGhee was the result of in gesting bath salts. That discovery made McGhee the first person in Uillsboro u g h County to die as a result of ingesting b a t h salts. JAIRIOUS MCGHEE McGhee died a day after Tampa Police said he beat on cars and tried to punch an offi cer at a busy intersection. His death was initially attributed to viral meningitis. McGhee's official cause of death was intoxication by methylone, an ingredient in a type of designer drug labeled as bath salts. People take the powdery substances have ended up in emergency rooms with paranoia, hallucinations, increased heart rates and other symp toms. McGhee was a chef who lived in Carrollwood He died April 3, 2011 and the autopsy results were released a day after Governor Rick Scott signed into law a measure banning bath salts. to police, a mo torist flagged down an officer about 5:30 p. m. on April 2nd at Kennedy Boulevard and Dale Mabry to report a crazy man was beating on cars. The officer approached the man, who was later identified as McGhee, to determine if he was alright. McGhee had re portedly urinated on himself and had bloodshot eyes and dry lips. McGhee reportedly lunged at the officer and tired to punch him, and the officer fired his taser, striking McGhee in the chest. When McGhee was taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation, his temperature was 105 degrees. According to police, doctors said they be lieved he had viral meningitis, a fairly common disease that is serious but rarely fatal. McGhee died the next night 11nd an initial medical ex aminer's reported listed no ob vious cause of death. McGhee's mother report edly disputed the police ac count and said her son appeared healthy hours before the incident.

Features Anornev Outraged Bv Uproar over luncheon ATIY. DELANO STEWART BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel CitY; Editor For several years, Attorney Delano Stewart has practiced law in Hills borough County. However, the recent fallout about the luncheon between the Hillsborough County Attorney and a former Commissioner has angered him. "I am very angry about the conduct of the County Commissioners. Attorney Renee Lee is one of the brightest attorneys in the state. Since she has been here, she has exhibited pro fessionalism beyond merit." Attorney Stewart since her professionalism leaves no room for attack the pro-tagonists sought another avenue. "For them to assume she did something wrong is meritless. The Constitution gives her the right to interface with any one in America and all of its territories. This man is not a criminal and she is not forbidden to associate with him." Attorney Stewart said that he was part of the Civil Rights Movement and reflects on that era. "As Mrican Americans we must become more assertive and stop letting other people put their foot in our butts for no reason at all." "The great tragedy is that Kevin (White) has no integrity, no honesty, and no character. So how can these two protagonists use a man who is without character to blemish someone with great character? This is all because they couldn't get her initially. "Mrican Americans have to let people know that they will not tolerate this. They think that because we have a Black President everything is alright and it's not. I came out of the Civil Rights Movement and I have my marching shoes back on at the age of 75," Attorney Stewart said. :!:! c Political Activist Shares Account Of luncheon With Countv Anornev c.. c: z m w 1\) 0 ATIY.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor There are several bits of useful advice established writ ers offer to novice. One tidbit is to write about what familiar. After years of being a loyal Sentinel reader, Ms. Laurel Johnson-Page decided to give something back. Her gift comes in the form of a new soap opera that uses Tampa as a backdrop. Using "New Concept 2011" as a tentative title, Ms. Johnson-Page, 31, has created a storyline that incorpo rates the sights and sounds of the city. The story centers on three young African American women, Mia, Sharie, and Vikki. All three are educated women with a bright future be fore them. As childhood friends, they share many adventures as they attend social and cultural events throughout the area.

Renee lee And The Kevin White Bus Add another name to the notorious bus driven by a driver who seems more apt to throw passengers under the bus than to have them riding on the bus. So say critics of former Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin White regarding a Tar-Baby list of names connected with him, which stretches back to the late C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. and here recently includes the previously embattled Hillsborough_.County Attorney, Renee Lee. Indeed, the most recent story involving White and Lee sounds more like a Hollywood "B" movie than a local political "hiccup." And it all begins -so says La Gaceta editor-owner Patrick Manteiga -when Kevin White lets him in on a scoop that White and County Attorney Lee will be having lunch together at a local restaurant, and that the editor should be stationed somewhere within eye-site and earshot. However, unless Manteigais packing a James Bond listening device, it is doubtful as to whether he could hear exactly what is being said or not-said by the hitherto notorious lunch-Bonnie and Clyde. Tell us, has the world of politics indeed, sunk so low that having lunch with someone becomes a capital crime? If so, why not ask for a lie-detector test to see whose bread is buttered on the truthful side. In the meantime, we readers will wait to get the latest poop on the reality show OUR COUNTY AND KEVIN WHITE, wherein we ask ourselves, "Who will be the next local celebrity to get thrown under the bus?" Until then, as far as Kevin White is concerned, perhaps we all should consider eating at home. Congratulations, Abdullateel H is name is Muslim. His heritage is African American, and just recently, young Abdul Lateef graduated from the third grade to the fourth grade. But his graduation was not the only honor bestowed upon this adolescent whose eyes light up like stars whenever he speaks about school. For, Abdul Lateef (his grandfather calls him "Abdul the Genius!") has the distinction of having made all "s's" on his FCAT scores, an achievement that places him at the pinnacle of the top percentile in his school, and at the top of the Hillsborough County School System. And would you believe Abdul is not alone? Quietly, but steadily, Hillsborough County public school children have been surmounting what too often seemed like an impassible mountain to climb. In growing numbers, Black students and their white, Latino and Asian American classmates have been surpassing expectations of teachers and administrators alike. So, who should take a bow? Is it the parents who finally realized education was not simply a teacher's prerogative? Is it the teachers who somehow regained the spirit of hope and in-0 ne of the hottest topics going on in Hillsbor ough Councy today is the sub ject of redistricting the four single member districts of the county. Every ten years fol lowing the U. S. Census, the federal government, states, counties and cities are re quired to revise their political districts. Each governmental enticy does their redistricting inde pendently of each other. Today, it is the councy's time. Shifts in population from one district to another make this necessary to try to keep each single-member district equally populated. It is also the intent of re districting to give minorities and especially Blacks the op portunicy to elect one of their own to represent them. I can remember when Hillsbo rough Councy had seven at large districts. At that time, it was totally impossible to get a Black elected. It was decided that seven at-large districts no longer served our purpose and had outlived its useful ness. The Councy went to a 4-3 plan that included 4 singlemember districts and 3 at large districts. Think with me ... as Hillsborough Councy continues to grow and the minority population contin ues to be more diverse, maybe just maybe, Hillsbo rough County has grown too big for the current 4-3 plan and it is time for a change. Maybe, it is time to redis trict the redistrict. Hillsbo-Hineparts And Gerrvmandering You either like Hineparts, or you don't. By the way, that's "J. Algonquin Hines" to peo ple who don't know him. And the following morning was no exception. Sitting in my favorite greasy-spoon, eating my fa vorite breakfast, I was order ing my day when in came my nemesis (you guessed it!) Hineparts himself. Slouching over to my table with his arrogant sad-sack sneer, 'he had yet to say good-morning," before fish ing out a cup he'd snatched from a tray of cups. Hineparts imperiously poured himself a cup of my coffee. I watched him slurp it down while I tried to decide whether or not I should set his ears on fire with well-placed cussing. Instead, I said "So, good friend, what takes you up and out, so early this morning?" With a snarl, Hineparts looked up at me from a stolen coffee cup and muttered, "Whatchou mean what takes me up so early in the morning? Just because Ah'm Black, are you trying to insinuate Black folks don't git up early in the morning? Maaan, you need to check yourself! SLURRRRRP! I just looked at Hineparts, gritted my teeth and counted backwards. "Besides," Hineparts continued, "Ah'm gitting my new political campaign together, and Ah'm figuring out how I want my voting district to be drawn up." I couldn t help it. I had to speak. "What do you mean 'draWn up?"' I said. Drawing up voting dis tricts isn t simply something you get up in the morning and make up your mind to do." "It is, too!" barked Hineparts. '"IS NOT!" I an swered. "' IS TOO!" "I'm telling you, it is NOT!" I growled, sputtering scram bled eggs across the table. "WELL, IF IT AIN'T THEN WHY ARE THE COMMIS SIONERS DOWN AT HILLS BOROUGH CO UNIT DOING IT?" "What do you MEAN why are the Commissioners down at Hillsborough Councy doing it ... Doing WHAT?" member district making it easier for the elected official to represent his or her district more effectively. Finally, it would give Blacks and Hispanics their own separate district without having to compete with each other for the same single member district. At first thought, the idea may not sound appealing. Well, neither did the 4-3 plan. Citizens of this councy should put aside their reluc tances for change and take a serious look at a 6-3 plan that calls for 6 single-member dis tricts. To maintain the current district and have near equal population, it would require each district to have about 325,000 people. That's too 0 many. :!:! 0 They're drawing up the vot ing districts all over the place," drawled Hineparts. "As a matter of fact, the last time I checked poor old Lester Miller" ( That's Lesley Miller," I corrected him.) "That's what I said! Poor old Lester Miller didn't even have no voting district because that new feller down there just went in his suit-jacket pocket, took out a ballpoint pen and just rearranged all-to-be-durned! And he got away with it, too!" "HE DID NOT!" "HE DID, TOot" )> en m z ::t z m r-Ill c r rm ::t z "'D c Ill r-c;; ::::1: m 0 m -t "Well, you're sure as heck c not going to get away with it," m I warned, as people stopped 0 eating their breakfast in order to hear what Hineparts and )> I were yelling about. "Well, you shall see, Mr. "11 Know-it-All," sneered ::!;! Hineparts. And with a quick 0 search in a worn briefcase, Hines pulled out a wrinkled map of Hillsborough Councy -and showed me where with a blue marker he had connected all of the Black neighborhoods in the County. It looked like the outline of a bloated lizard. H. P. sat back with folded arms and grinned, "How you like me now?" I wanted very much to say, "I'd like you even better if you were on the other side of China!" But instead, I simply looked at Hineparts, fin ished my cold breakfast, and shook my head. spiration that must be the trademark of every master educator? Is it the administrators who have finally understood that everyone in a school system -from bus driver to principal -is an educator entrusted with the life-iong learning of every child who comes to class? Or is the God-given gift of every child to become excellent and ingenious if given half a chance? C) Yes, we congratulate Abdul Lateef for his excellence. But we know indeed, that what m Abdul has achieved is not an exception. In truth, it is the rule! t

Chylsea will be studying performing arts and visual communications. Ms. Castillo said al though Chylsea has been ac cepted into B-CU, she's currently applying for differ ent scholarships. "She missed the deadline for applying for some scholar ships, but she's still sending out requests and I'm doing If You Cannot Attend, A Donation Will Be Appreciated whatever I can to help her." One of the things M s Castillo did was put infor mation on her vehiCHYLSEA cle to inSNELI.S f o r m people that she needed help to send her daughter to college. "By chance, I ran into Michelle Williams. She saw the information on my car, ap proached me, we talked, and: she offered Chylsea $250 to ward her books. "That was a true blessing, Deacon Fred Short, President Deacon because we never expected that. We both think Ms. Williams is an angel." Ms. Williams said she feels it is the responsibility of everyone to reach out and help our youth in any way they can. "We have to encourage our youth to seek careers and im prove their lives. If they need a little help, I think we as a com munity are obligated to either give them that help or provide resources so they can get help. "What I did for Chylsea was not for any personal grat ification. My reward Will come with her success as a student, and the hope that in the future, she will do the same thing for another senior." Chylsea is currently on a Step Team, a member of her school's band, and a dancerette at Revealing Truth Ministries. She was also hon ored by the Alliance of Black School Educators during an award ceremony. "Chylsea is a great person and her personality always precedes her," said Ms. Castillo.

His lyrics were powerful and offered a message to the peo ple that made them want to empower themselves. He gave me a better insight into the messages some hip-hop artists were getting over.

Two men in dark clothing were seen leav ing the scene in a car shortly after the shooting. Bell appeared twice on HBO's Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry in 2003 and 2004.

Pryor Should Have Gone Pro Ohio State embattled quarterback Terrelle Pryor should have gone pro prior. to the draft. The NCAA had suspended him for the first five games of next season. That meant that the senior quarterback would sit around for nearly half of the season with no football games to play. I said then, and I say now that Pryor should have optioned for the NFL College Player's Draft. Now more issues have come up that could end his college playing days. Pryor would have been a late first round pick or an early 4th round pick. He would have also been an instant millionaire. No ; I am not excusing Pryor for any wrongs that he may have done.

Howard Denies He Prvor's Cars Now Wants on The Magic Tanoo Removed Focal Point Of Probe m DWIGHT HOWARD Magic superstar Dwight Howard said Monday he has no ambition to follow the lead of Shaquille O';N eal by heading to another contender and would rather make his own path in Orlando. There has been increasing speculation Howard would move to a larger market like Los Angeles, or New York LIBBY'S VIENNA SAUSAGE stf2 with the Knicks, when he becomes a free agent next year. But in an interview, the 6foot-11 center said he does not want to go anywhere. not trying to run behind nobody like Shaq or be behind somebody else," Howard said, -referring to O'Neal's move from the Magic to the Lakers after the 1995-96 season. "I want to have my own path, and I want to start that here in Orlando. But I can't do it alone. Not only do I need the right teammates, but I need the city behind me. Howard is contracted to the Magic through to the en9 of the 2012-13 season, but has the option of becoming a free agent in _the summer of 2012. He said he has never discussed leaving witl,_ the franchise. FRESH IIMavslose JASON TERRY It looks like Jason Terry's tattoo of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy is either going to be .a great story about how he believed in his team -from the begin ning or a painful story, both literally and figuratively. Terry told reporters on Sunday that he will get the tattoo removed from his right biceps if his Dallas Mavericks lose to the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. FRESH A day after coach Jim Tressel's forced resignation for lying about Ohio State players receiving improper benefits the focus has shifted to the investigation of star quarterback Terrelle Pryor and his succession of used cars. The salesman who put Pryor behind the wheel of several vehicles said in a sworn affidavit released by Ohio State on Tuesday that he didn' t offer any special deals to Buckeyes. "The deals that I did for Ohio State student-athletes were no different than any of the other 10,000-plus deals that I've done for all my other customers," Aaron Kniffin said in the state-ment. Tressel's 10-year reign as coach of the Buckeyes ended in disgrace Monday as he was forced to step down for breaking NCAA rules. He knew players received cash and tattoos for autographs, championship rings and equipment and did not tell anyone at Ohio State or the NCAA what he knew for more than nine months. TERRELLE PRYOR NCAA rules -and Tressel's r-contract -specify that he must disclose any and all 52 information about possible violations. Pryor, the highest profile Z recruit of Tressel's 25-year coaching career, is one of five m Buckeyes who have already I"'" been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season I"'" I"'" for taking money and tattoos m from local tattoo-parlor owner Edward Rife, who "'0 pleaded guilty last week to c: federal drug trafficking and money-laundering charges. c.;; :I: m STORE HOURS: -_ MON.-SAT 8:00A.M.-8:00 P.M. c m < m SUN 8:00A.M. -7:00 P.M.

BOSTON --Shaquille O'Neal, who struggled to get on the court for the Boston Celtics because of leg injuries, said on Twitter on Wednesday that he is going 0 to retire after a 19-year a: career in which he won four LL NBA titles and the 2000 league Most Valuable Player < award.

An inveterate prankster who gave himself a new nickname -or several in each of :::: his six NBA cities, the 15-c. time All-Star did not notify his latest team of his plans. w He played just 37 games this ::j year, the first of a two-year :::: deal at the veteran's mini-m 1 k' ...J mum sa ary, rna mg JUSt w three brief appearances after Feb. 1. z "To my knowledge, he has not informed any of us that he's retiring, Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said. l:t If he goes, O'Neal retires g fifth all-time with 28,596 LL points, 12th with 13,099 rebounds and second only to Artis Gilmore among players with more than 2,000 baskets with a .582 field goal percentage. O'Neal's contributions to basketball went far beyond his presence on the court. One of the most charismat ic players in NBA history, O'Neal was a franchisesaver when the Orlando Magic made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 1992 draft. He took them from the lottery to the playoffs in two years, and then led them to the NBA finals in his third year before they were swept by the Houston Rockets. O'Neal, 39, signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1996 and had his greatest success there, winning three titles alongside Kobe Bryant and coach Phil Jackson. But amid tension between O'Neal and Bryant over credit for the team's success, O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat in the summer of 2004, fresh off a loss to the Detroit Pistons in the finals. After 3 1/2 years in Miami, a tenure that included his fourth NBA championship, O'Neal became a veteranfor-hire, moving to Phoenix and then Cleveland and final ly Boston. But he couldn't deliver another title for Steve Nash and Am are Stoudemire with the Suns, with LeBron James with the Cavaliers or with the Celtics' Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. In all O'Neal averaged just 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 20.3 minutes this season while playing in 37 games all career lows. 9" Roller ...................................... $1 Brushes ...................................... i 99.

Sanchez, who is Kingston's longtime friend, recalls begging the singer to slow down before they crashed into the Palm Island bridge in Miami. As the. pair were ap proaching the bridge Sanchez recalls they were traveling "really fast." 'We can't fit under there," Sanchez remembers she screamed at Kingston be fore the collision.

Nellv Shoots Down Claims 01 Monev Issues And Steroid Use Nelly took to Twitter to shoot down claims that he lost all his money on steroids, drugs and gam bling. The war of words between Nelly and a man named Slim started when the man, allegedly an ex-manager of the singer, reportedly booked Nelly to make an ap pearance at a basketball game, but the 'Country Grammar' singer did not take to the news kindly. Slim then took to Twitter, where he said Nelly needed the money as the rapper was broke because he spent his fortune on coke, steroids, Ashanti (the R&B singer and Nelly's rumored girl friend), pills and gambling. Slim also claimed that Nelly was just a few dollars away from having his house foreclosed. However, Nelly then went on Twitter to blast all the NELLY claims. The rapper first said that Slim was not his ex manager, rather a promoter he had worked with in the past. Nelly went on to say that the drug and steroid claims were false.

Companywide response drills, enhancements to customer service, proactive tree trimming and upgrades to our equipment are all part of our hurricane season preparation. To report a power outage or a more serious situation such as a downed power line, customers may call our toll-free, automated system at 1-877-588. To fully use this system, update your primary phone number and an alternate phone number at tampaelectrlc.com. The system can recognize your phone numbers or Tampa Electric account number and match them to your addre&S when you call, helping us locate outages quickly. With our Mutual Assistance Routing System, customer service representatives from other utilities will securely handle your calls in the event our call center must evacuate. After Severe Wea1her, We're Ready Should severe weather result in the temporary loss of electricity, our plan helps us restore power as safely and quickly as possible. When conditions are safe for our crews to work, our restoration effort begins with facilities critical to public health and safety. This is followed by work prioritized to restore power to the most customers in the least amount of time. In the event we are faced with a widespread outage and require additional help, Tampa Electric's membership in the Southeastern Electric Exchange provides support from other utilities. In tum, we will send crews to help restore power for other communities in need. To help ensure power supply, we have installed peaking units with "black start" capability which can start larger generating units should power from the system not be readily available. Putting Safety First As we make safety our top priority, we ask that you do the same. This means planning for severe weather as soon as possible. In addition, before and during hurricane season, we advise our customers to have a personal storm plan in place and follow these electrical safety guidelines: Stay away from downed power lines. Nways assume that a downed power line is energized, and move away to safety. Stay out of floodwaters. Floodwaters can hide energized power lines or other hazards, or put you at risk of drowning.

Promises! Promises! A promise is a vow or a pledge between two people to do something for or to someone. There are some people who specialize in making promises, but not keeping the promise. The person to whom the promise has been made truly believes that the promise that was made would be kept. people of God must learn not to get so caught up in the man, but keep their focus on God. God said to Joshua al though Moses is dead, I still want you and this people to get up and cross over into the land that I am giving you (vs. 2). God's promises do not die with the people in your life. God s promises do not cease because the people you relied on for years are gone. This week's lesson re ported by J,oshua 1:1-6; 11:16-23 gives record of a promise made an,d fulfilled by God to the children of Is rael. After Moses died, God began speaking to Joshua 0 (vs. 1). God always has fE someone He can use to cone tinue His vision and com:i plete His mission. The This verbiage God uses can suggest that the people came to a place of compla cency because Moses was dead. God speaks with a commanding voice telling them to get up!

God encourages them by telling them to be strong and of good courage: for they shall divide as an inheri tance the land which He swore to give their fathers (vs. 6). In the midst of the adversity you must remain strong and vigilant. Every. day you must encourage yourself to press your way to reach the place God has promised.

Representative Reed To Give Report During East Tampa Meeting f BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Evangeline Best, Chairperson of the East Tampa Community Revital ization Partnership is proud to announce that Florida State Representati v e Betty Reed will be presenting a re port t o the community. The ETCRP meetin g will be held Tu e sda y June 7th, 6:30 p. m. a t the Ragan Park Commu nity Center, 1200 East Lake STATE REPRESENTATIVE BETIYREED Juvenile Facilitv A Victim In State Budget The budget Governor Rick Scott approved last week will cause the closure of a Hillsborough County Juvenile Detention Center and the loss of 52 jobs The so-bed juvenile faci lity at 9504 East Columbus Drive will be shut down by the end of June. The closure is part of a $67 million cut back the department has to make statewide; about -an 11 percent dip from last year s budget. C.J. Drake, spokesman for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice said the youth now at the facility will ,be transferred to the Hillsbo rough West Detention Center, 3948 West Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, which at 93 beds is nearly double in size. Drake said the department will try to find positions inside and outside the depart.:. ment for those losing their jobs. The Hillsborough East center has been a target of cuts for years, barely staying open last year Officials said it was one of the most under used facilities in the state op erating at about 75% capacity. Among other facilities being shut down is the North Florida Youth Development Center, formerly known as Arthur G. Dozier School For Boys, a reform school or boys in the Panhandle where former students said they were physically and sexually abused some 40 years ago In 2008, former governor Charlie Crist ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate allegations by former stu dents. Investigators last year concluded they could neither substantiate nor refute those claims. Also being closed are centers in Desoto, Osceola and Seminole counties. Drake said the department will focus on interven tion and detention programs in local communities, trying to reach youth before they enter the detention system.

CHOY BARRINGTON NEW YORK -Choy "CC" Barrington, 21, a nurse and cosmetology student in New York ; who was three months pregnant, died in a fire after falling asleep while smoking a cigarette. Her roommates tried in vain to save the cqsmetology student and geriatric nurse, who was three months pregnant, after waking in the middle of the night to find their home engulfed in smoke. "Two weeks ago she fell asleep with a cigarette in her mouth," said [her boyfriend Laurel] Prince, who explained he had to pull the lit butt from Barrington's mouth as she slept. "But r was there to save her and put it out. ... I wasn't there to save her this time." DENVER-Denver authorities have begun outlining their case against a ruthless pimp for running a sophisticated hooker ring through the city's best-known strip clubs. Germaine "Jell-0" Wallace was living in a $1.3 million pad near Castle Rock, Colo., with a driveway full of custom cars and collection of exotic pets when he was busted on pimping, sexual assault and weapons charges in November, police said in recently filed court papers. Authorities said Wallace sent a crew of loyal hookers into the area's swankiest jig gle joints to turn tricks -and strong-arm other pers to do the same. Busting an operation as big as his was unusual because police have a hard time get ting hookers to talk. One 20-year-old stripper told police she was recruited into Jell-O's world by a dancer at the swank Centerfold Showclub. The woman said Wallace Budgets are tight enough these days without wasting money and energy By taking advantage of energy rates available most of the day, our Energy Planner>M Program can help you save about a month's worth of electricity each year."

Michael Levy Empowered greetings. BusinessDictionary. com defines business as: "An eco nomic system in which goods and services are exchanged for one another or money, on the basis of their perceived worth." Every business requires some form of invest ment and a sufficient number of customers to whom its out put can be sold at profit on a consistent basis. Business entrepreneurs are in business to make a profit and generate wealth. In order to do that you must be willing to invest time, money, sweat and maybe even some tears. As a business owner or stock holder, you want a return on your investment at some point, otherwise you're engaging in a hobby and not a business. One business coach would define you as a HO versus a BO. (Hobby Owner vs. Business Owner). Ministries, nonprofits and not-for-profits should also be run as a business. Close attention must be given to your bottom line as well. If not, you will not survive long enough to benefit those you were created to serve. Thus rendering your agency none effective. To make it in business you must be innovative. New and fresh ideas must constantly be flowing through your orga nizational culture or individual pursuits. Progressive ideas cause you to progress. You must also be educated. Stay on top of the latest trends in your industry. If you don't stay on the top, you'll find yourself at the bot tom, gasping for air and trying to keep your business alive The Good, The Bad And The Uglv: An overview of Three Pieces of Pending Federal legislation (Part III) On January 18, Representative Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) and Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) introduced H.R. 313, the Drug Trafficking Safe Harbor Elimination Act of 2011. The bill, currently pending in committee, would amend 21 U.S.C. 13 846, in a more severe way. Section 841 con tains a number of mandatory minimums for drug offenses. Section 846 applies those mandatory minimum sentences to people convicted of attempting or conspiring to commit the drug offenses. The purpose of H.R. 313 is to extend the jurisdictional reach of 21 U.S.C. 841(a) and 846 -and their mandato ry minimum sentences fi to cases in which the drugs are not intended to be or actually distributed within United States territory. If passed H.R. 313 could expose a number of drug conspiracy participants to the mandatory min'imums in 21 U.S.C. 841. If passed, these mandatory minimum sentences would apply even if: No drugs are ever intended to be distributed in the United States No drugs are actually dis tributed in the United States No drugs are actually or constructively possessed in the United States All of the profits from the drug conspiracy go to conspirators who do not live or operate in the United States or have not even set foot in the United States The defendant never leaves the United States to further distribution of the drugs out side the United States The defendant plays a minor or negligible role in the drug conspiracy (e.g., counting money, answering the phone, being present at meet ings between other conspirators, or connecting buyers with sellers). The controlled substance at issue may be legal under some circumstances in the other country but not legal in the United States OUR VIEW: We oppose this legislation. Mandatory minimums are never appro priate as they remove flexibility at sentencing, risking unjust sentences. Mandatory minimums are also costly to taxpayers because they often result in overlong sentences and contribute to over-incar ceration in our federal pris ons. In an age of growing fed eral debt why does the federal government want to add to it by incarcerating more and more people for longer and longer sentences? Especially when it is not necessary?
