According to Kendra, her uncle suffered severe burns, lost an ear, and has several broken ribs. "But, he's alive, and that's the importantthing. It's hard trying to deal with the death of someone close to you when you almost have to deal with it happening to another relative. The entire incident shook us all." Kendra said her uncle is recovering in the hospital, but the family is weary and trying to draw strength from the older members. "We really need the guid ance of our elders right now. This is the time when their wisdom will come in handy, and help us get through this near tragedy and the lost of JJ."

County Commissioner, District 3 BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Tuesday night, mem bers of the Hillsborough County Board of Commis sioners voted to accept Map G as the new redistricting map. The decision means new districts won't be created again for the next 10 years. Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., who represents District 3, said his main con cern was that District 3 did not lose any of its current African American popula tion. The new "Map G" keeps the African American popula tion at39%. COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 3 (PLAN G) Commissioner Miller had introduced his own cre ation, "Map J" for considera tion.

3 Roundabouts Causing Concern BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer No one was happier than the East Tampa neighborhood leaders when the 40th Street project was completed. More lanes were constructed, and a new bridge now crosses the river. This is the roundabout at 40th Street and Hanna. However, three items along 40th Street heading north are the cause of great concern to citizens and drivers. Those items are the 3 roundabouts, one at 40th Street and Hanna, one at 40th Street and Riverhills, and another at 40th Street near Yukon. The question raised re cently is who came up with the idea for the roundabouts in the first place? According to City of Tampa Transportation Manager, Jean Dorzback, a project development and environmental study was done in the 1990s, and that outlined what direction to go with the design concept for 40th Street. Dorzback said over the past eight years, they ve had a task force of neighborhood leaders attending all the meetings and bringing the information back to their communities. "Those meetings were held monthly and numerous presentations were made, including a video presentation. Every effort was made to get the word out to the community and get their feedback on the project. Dorzback said the Federal Highway Administration approved the study and that cleared the way for the funding of the 40th street project. "We actually had an instructional video that was seen by citizens so they would know how to navigate through the roundabouts. "I admit, we were apprehensive at first, but we believe there are great benefits in having the roundabouts." Dorzback said the benefits of the roundabouts are they improve safety, reduces speed, lowers accident statistics, control the tlow of traffic better, alleviate congestion on the roadways, and aid in fuel savings as well as causing less emissions from cars idling at stop lights. Former Tampa City Councilman, Thomas Scott, said he was concerned about the concept when it was first raised. Quarrel At East Tampa librarv Ends PIICIIUIIV An exchange of words at a Hillsborough County Public Library ended peacefully on Tuesday. Other patrons at the library were instrumental in preventing a disturbance. The incident took place at the C. Blythe Andrews Public Library, 2607 E. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Programming Manager Linda Gillian said the incident took place shortly after the library opened. "Apparently, two patrons became involved in a verbal exchange that moved into the lobby and then outside. The librarian called the Tampa Police Department because others began to gather in the parking lot. "I don't know if they were friends of.the two or what, but by the time police arrived, those outside had calmed the two women down. One came back into the library and did whatever she had come to do. We took care of it, and no one was arrested," she said. A spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department stated that there was a call for service at the library at 1:09 p.m. However, the officer who responded did not make an arrest and did not initiate a report. "I felt it was not a good idea, and it would cause a lot of accidents. I addressed that concern from the beginning. "It was under the Pam Iorio administration when the design concepts were made." Councilman Frank Reddicksaid he doesn't like the roundabouts, and feels they are confusing. "Whoever came up with the idea, it was not a good one I fear there will be an increase in accidents due to the roundabouts. I don't want it on 22nd Street, and I'd like to meet with Ed Johnson (East Tampa Development Manager) and find a way to exclude them." What Councilman Reddick was referring to are plans for a roundabout at the junction of 22nd Street and 21st Street as part of Phase II in the 22nd Street Enhancement Project. ED JOHNSON Johnson said consultants did the design work and came up with the idea for the roundabout. "The engineering consul ting firm of Wade/Trimm was used and the actual study I design for the roundabout cost $294,000. "In 2003, the Wilson Miller Firm prepared a concept that included what's happening on 22nd Street right now. All of the meetings that went on during the adaption of the CRA Plan involved discussions of the 22nd Street project. The project was also brought to -the public's attention through mailings, community meetings, and during meetings of the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership;" Johnson said because the roads go off into one-way pairs, it was felt that could be FRANK REDDICK a gateway into East Tampa. Johnson also said when the concept was presented to the public, there were no complaints initially. He also said there was no opposition to the plan at the time it was submitted.

Same Gender Schools In A Diverse Gender World ,,c_1uch, such were the joys/ When we all, girls and ,;::}boys/ In our youth time were seen/ On the Echoing Green." So wrote William Blake, in his poem "Songs of the Innocence." He was talking about an environment where children -boys and girls -intermingled on a playground, and thereby learned to relate to one another on the field of life. However, according to recent turns of events in the Hillsborough County School System, the opinions of William Blake and other individuals who envision education as a microcosm of the diversity of humanity may already have fallen on deaf ears. Two schools in Tampa's Black community are among other schools being reorganized to accommodate socalled "same-gender" academies. Ferrell and Franklin Middle Schools will be part of an experiment (we hope) to see if the separation of the sexes may spur better school behavior. Though certainvoices have been raised regarding the fact no Black principals have been picked for these schools, what worries us more is the entire idea itself. Having failed at the separation of the races, should we now prepare to fail again at the separation of the sexes? Are we so frantic or gullible that we do not realize that separating the very seed of human reality (male and female) is by no means the way to educate children as to how they are to relate one to another in a gender-diverse world? Instead, we humbly suggest courses be instituted, which teach boys and girls how to respect each other. Indeed, same-gender schools are simply" Alice-in-Wonderland" attempts to further confuse the issue. Co-ed education is not the problem. I Does Anvone Reallv Care;t I In the 1970's, a movie entitled Soy lent Green painted a sobering picture of a future wherein the oceans were dead, animals, trees and greenery were extinct and food was practically nonexistent except for a miracle food with an exotic name. That food, "Soylent Green," turned out to be the reprocessed flesh of dying human beings. Now comes news from world scientists that the earth's oceans and rivers are dying much faster than experts had expected. Some scientists predict that a mass extinction of entire marine ecosystems could soon occur on a scale quite similar to the age of dinosaurs. That's what experts say. But what does all of this mean to us? Well, it should mean everything! We are left to wonder if anyone really cares about how quickly humanity is killing itself as well as its homeplanet-earth. Global warming, the run-off from farms using tons of fertilizers and pesticides, greenhouse emissions from power plants, carbon dioxide emissions and over fishing are the mass extinction of whales and sharks for sport and pleasure. These human-generated catastrophes poisoning our oceans and dooming our future generations. With nearly 17 percent of the world's tropical coral reefs having already died, scientists fear another 83 percent will die within the next 20 years, consequently wiping out life in the sea. Racism, though idiotic, is a distant runner-up as to what will ultimately kill the human race. The Bullv As America's National svmbol If you are male and born in America, your masculin ity has been, or will soon be challenged. And these days, the same is true if you are female. Dependent upon how you respond to that challenge is the predictor of what type of man or woman you will become, or have al ready become. For, such is what happens when gender becomes confused with power. Welcome to America. I remember the first time I heard someone say, "My girl friend's got a girlfriend." The statement was made in pride, but it shook me to the soles of my shoes. Then I began to re alize the truth of the statement made by a young man about his closest female asso ciate. He wasn't necessarily referring to homosexuality as much as he was talking about the showing off of power. But the subject of this column is "Bullying, or what I've heard some people call, "Bullyism." Bullying is a situation wherein the so-called "alpha male or "alpha-fe male" (as might be the tum of events) presses his or her superiority by physically or psychologically intimidating his or her fellow human be ings. But bullying (or bullyism) is not a new thing. Indeed, it goes back even to the begin ning of American Independ ence when King George, III and Great Britain itself were seen as arch-bullies -who had to be taken down a notch. So, the Revolutionary War was fought, and America became free (free of what?) of the bullies George and Great Britain! However, was there a hidden reason for the fact our first president was also named "George?" Seemingly, America has always been in a struggle either WITH a bully, AS a bully, or sometimes both. Certainly, American Indians grew to see White-" Black.: Eu ropean Americans as bullies. No doubt, Mexicans did, too. And then, when America mo mentarily tore itself apart during the Civil War, both Union and Confederate vt5ices accused each other of being a bully while Black slaves lived daily a situation of so-called "bullyism, which would last long after they had "'tt been freed by cannon and c: constitution. OJ And how could one ever forget the sojourn of Ameri-::E: can women who, having been seen as inferior children and m as "the weaker vessels," were < brutally bullied up until the m<:tl middle 2oth century if not even today? Nevertheless, the clubbing rn claws of bullying have c reached out from the play-ground to pummel gays and )> lesbians, the physically and Z mentally disabled, the eld-C erly, indeed, any individual 3:r or group who is different or i5 who is weak and alone. No wonder, America's national animal is the eagle. But might it also be the wolf? And now, our children American children-are act ing out our heritage by murdering each other and by killing themselves. Is there any wqnder that they should do so? Has our history not taught them how to respond to each other and to the world? These days, young girls challenge each other to bloody combat in their back yards, and defenseless young men and women blow their own brains out because they cannot stand the pressure of being terrorized daily. Meanwhile, America attempts to bring peace to the world. But such is very diffi. cult when -in the center of our souls we carry the seeds of Bluto (the bully who once terrorized Popeye the America, our children are on fire. And we G) m are the ones who have sup-c.n plied the matches. : :)..

I know, because it's come back to bite me on more than a few occasions And now it looks as though it's preparing to take a big chunk out of the backside of former Commissioner White. County Kevin I hate to pile on a man who's already getting hammered in the poll of public opinion as well as the press, but damn. This guy seems to attract more crap than a port-o-potty at a Gasparilla parade. Seriously. Every since White was elected a few years ago, he's been embroiled in some form of controversy. He has been accused of sexually harassing a female office aide, allegedly abusing his posi tion, back stabbing friends and colleagues and now he's somehow managed to place himself directly in the center of a 10-count federal indict ment. He has gone from a rising star in the arena of Florida politics to a poster boy for government corruption. And I can't help but wonder how uj he was ableto trick so many Z for so long? I mean, I've heard of indim viduals being able to charm the pants off just about anybody. But, was he that good at hiding these character ...J flaws on his way to getting LL. voted into two separate, high-ranking public offices? Surely, one of the chickens in the hen house had to become suspicious at the way the new rooster meowed at sunrise? KEVIN WHITE Now I imagine we'll see what he's truly made of. Though he may not receive much time for white collar offenses such as wire fraud, mail fraud and bribery considering he's a first-time offender, whatever time they offer him may still be too much for him to handle. Leaving his beautiful wife for even a year could prove to be unbearable. And with his track record of throwing people under the bus when the situation gets heated, that means only one thing. Anybody who's ever dealt with him in the past should start getting their affairs in order. Because they could become part of a package deal, once the feds apply their usual pressure. Unfortunately, that's how the game is played these days. A man does a crime. He can't do the time. So he brings someone else along to do it for him. I am not saying for sure that this is what Mr. White is going to do. But, if other officials and business own e rs start being connected to the case in the next few weeks, it shouldn't come as Families Travel To Familv Reunion The Jones family of Tampa will be traveling this weekend to the Wesley/Davis/Jones Family Reunion in Kingland, GA.

In the meantime we should expect these things to happen: A public statement by White professing his innocence and promising to fight the charges; A peri od of silence from his camp as they figure out their next move; Other allegations surfacing and then the inevitable announcement that a plea agreement has been reached. Following his sentencing he'll probably release anoth er statement apologizing for misleading his constituents, the shame he brought to his family, he'll probably throw something in there about finding a new faith in Jesus Christ and he'll close it up by saying that because of his new spiritual enlightenment, he'll come out of prison a better man. You know, the typical, ''I'm sorry I got caught" speech. In essence it will be the same ending to the same movie we've seen so many times before.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Labor awarded 15 grants, valued at $20 mil lion, to help formerly incar cerated individuals between the ages 18-24. The grants are to help young offenders reconnect with their commu nities and find pathways to success through community service and educational op-portunities. The Computer Mentors Group, Inc. was the only or ganization in the southeastern United States to receive a grant. It is valued at $1,007, 149,000.

Prior to the Board being addressed by numerous citizens, Commissioner Kevin Beckner (addressed the controversy associated with "The People's Map." He stated, "There is no intentional political bias in designing the map." He further stated that he supports a map that is fair and addresses citizens throughout the county and that the lines of this map were drawn based on the principles of the Fair Amendment. He further stated that iThe People's Map! did not act to dilute the voice and vote of the African American com munities. Commissioner Beckner also stated that Sun City Center, Apollo Beach, and Ruskin residents requested to be a part of District 4, not District 3. Furthermore, Temple Terrace residents requested dual representation from Districts 2 and 3. He also apologized for separating Brandon into three districts which was corrected in Map J.

Carolyn Collins (NAACP President) stated, "We support a map that rep resents a voting age individual. Our greatest interest is we want to make sure District 3 rep resents 35% or greater.

Man Arrested In Hit-AndRun Moped Incident MICHAEL SUMMERLIN Tampa Police have charged a 22-year-old man who they said struck a woman with a moped and drove away. Police tracked down Michael Summerlin Monday and charged him with aggravated battery with deadly weapon. He didn't know the victim, who was bruised, but not seriously injured police said. The incident occurred at 12:41 a. m. June 4th at 2510 West Columbus Drive. The victim gave officers a partial number of the moped's license tag. Before the crash, an officer had stopped a man who wasn't wearing proper eye wear on his moped. The officer took down Summerlin's name and issued a warning. Because Summerlin's name was in their system, police were able to put his picture into a photograph pack. The victim identified Summerlin as the man who struck her. Summerlin wasn't charged with hit-and-run because his moped isn't con sidered a vehicle, police said.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Greg Harden discov ered three years ago, there are things more important than being a successful busi ness owner. Harden was diagnosed with a rare disease in 2008, and it was a life threatening experience. However, after numerous treatments and hospital visits, Harden (also known as Heavy) is ready to pick up where he left off. StartingJulySth, "Heavy's Old School" will be the high. light of your Friday nights. The old school event will be held at the Robert Vista Hotel (formerly the Comfort Inn) on the northwest corner of Nebraska Avenue and Busch Boulevard. "My goal is take them back to where it began with the slogan, "Where Adults Come Out and Play," said Heavy. "This time, we're going to create a more complete at mosphere that will compli ment the music. Also, DJ J T Money is returning." Heavy said they have been creating and practicing more than 20 new slide steps, and it all will be revealed July Slh. "Our concept is to enter tain adults with no hip hop or Meeting HEAVY (Greg Harden) rap. When you say sual to an adult, they know that doesn't mean sneakers." During Heavy's absence several area promoters tried to copy his theme, but none have had the success he's en joyed. "I think I have a unique concept and as long as it works, I'm not changing a thing. "For one thing, I've taken my event out of the clubs and bars, and put it in a place where adults can feel more relaxed." Heavy said his crowds average about soo patrons, but the closer they get to 1,100, the more problems they anticipate, due to lim ited seating. "I know I have wmthy people who don't like going to bars," said Heavy. "They want to be enter tained in a more mature, adult setting, and my crowds average in age from the ma ture 20s to the 6os. I've even had clergy come and they re ally enjoyed themselves." Heavy said adults don't want to hear profanity and rap music. "They don't want to be en tertained the same way their children are being enter tained. That's why at mid night I get on the turntables and all you'll hear are sounds from the 6os. I consider J T and myself DJ /entertainers." Heavy said he thinks his crowd enjoys the personal touch of being when they come in, and he stops by every table to talk to the trons. "They tell me what they want to hear, and to keep it going. We. have a very diverse crowd, and some come from out-of-town." Heavy said next month, the theme will be "A Real Man Wears Pink," in recog nition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some pf the. proceeds from that night Willgo -towaid the research of breast cancer.

Many people miss their blessings and cannot possess the land promised by God because they cannot follow God's instructions. God holds up His end of the bargain, it is up to you to do your part. God He will let you find favor with those who are in charge and everyone else. When God promises some thing to you He is going to give it all to you.

The wall was de signed to keep out those who they felt did not belong. The wall also served as a se curity device to keep those within safe. Sometimes the stuff God has promised has a wall around it. The wall is keep ing some out while keeping those inside safe. People have built walls around their life. People who have been hurt in the past have built walls. People are encountering professional walls. Banks have built walls for lending. Schools have built walls in education. Loved ones have built walls over the years. And yes, even the church has built walls. "IF" you are in the place God has promised you and you have encountered a wall around your blessing, God will tell you how to posses it.

Psalm 32:10 of God is that God is the one who brings the wall down. The next verses of this lesson give the instructions for what they are to do. He tells them to walk around the wall once a day for six days. This sounds simple, right? God's instructions are not intended to be diffi cult. God is testing for two things: faithfulness and obedience. Doing something for a period of time shows your willingness to be faithful. Some of what God wants from you is faithfulness. God wants you to be faithful to His instructions and commands. If you can be faithful to God's word, you will be blessed.

If you believe that Black peo ple don't get sunburn ... FYI ... when we get darker in the summertime, that is sunburn. We are just more likely to escape the side effects. Another benefit of being Black is that we suffer from the other effects at a much lower rate, too. The darker a person is, the lower the chances of skin cancer. Since sun damage is not impossi ble, protection is important. Sunscreen vs. Sunblock A sunscreen filters certain UV rays by absorbing them while alloVIring others to reach and be absorbed by the skin. A sunblock acts as a barrier, deflecting all UV rays. Sunblock may be a better choice if you have sensi tive skin.

Top 10 HIV MVths Since nearly half of all new HIV infections allegedly occur in the African American community, these myths may be standing in the way of proper protection. 1. If you test positive for HIV, you will die from AIDS. FALSE. 2. You can catch HIV from a casual contact. FALSE. The HIVvirus can not be transmitted by casual contact, or from a toilet seat, a doorknob, a fork, or a hand shake. The only known HIV transmission methods in clude unprotected sex, intra venous drug use, exposure to blood or bodily fluids from an infected person, from mother to child in pregnancy, and through blood transfusions if the blood came from an HIV infected person. 3 There is no cure. TRUE. But there's hope on the horizon. There are treatments that can prolong or prevent the development of AIDS for years or a lifetime. 4 People have been infected with HIV from taking the HIV test itself. FALSE. 5 You can spread/get HIV through oral sex. TRUE. If the person per forming oral sex has a cut or abrasion in their mouth and comes in contact with HIVinfected bodily fluids, they can become infected. 6. If you and your partner have HIV, it's safe to have unprotected sex FALSE. If you and your partner have the HIV virus, that doesn't mean you can ig nore the diagnosis or live as you did before the diagnosis. 7. Mosquitoes can spreadHIV. FALSE. 8. You could have HIV and not know it. TRUE. People who are in fected with HIV don't neces sarily "feel" sick; it's possible to have the HIV virus for some time before developing any symptoms. HIV testing is the only way to determine whether someone has HIV. 9 Ifyou'retakingmedication for HIV, you can't spread the virus. FALSE. Even while taking medication, a person with HIV can still infect others if they have unprotected sex, share needles, or expose oth ers to their blood or other bodily fluids. 10. HIV and AIDS may not be caused by the same virus. FALSE. Without treatment, the HIV will probably progress to AIDS .. However, with HIV treatment, most people living with the virus are able to prolong or prevent the development of AIDS. Confidence Begins With A Beautiful Smile!

WASHINGTON -The Supreme Court on Monday blocked a massive sex discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart on behalf of women who work there. The court ruled unanimous ly that the lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. cannot proceed as a class action, reversing a decision by the gth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The lawsuit could have involved up to 1.6 million women, with Wal-Mart facing potentially billions of dollars in damages. Justice Antonin Scalia's opinion for the court's con-f! servative majority said there 0 needs to be common ele-l:J ments tying together "literally $! millions of employment deci-CJ) sions at once." But Scalia said m that in the lawsuit against the nation's largest private z employer, "That is entirely m absent here." 1 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for the court's four liberal justices, m said there was more than :::! enough uniting the claims.

Bedford have been friends for more than 30 years. Their friendship has led them to travel together to exotic areas, foreign and throughout the United Stat es The two recently returned from what they've described as "an exciting and fascinating" 14day Caribbean Southern cruise. They ex plored 8 West Indies Is lands, while enjoying 6 full days at sea. The islands visited were: St. Maartin/St. Martin, Antigua, St. LuCia, joint Barbados, Grenada, known as the Spicy Island. Aruba, with its exclusive, large hotels, casinos, shopping and dining facilities, is known for its southern coast beach areas; Caracao, a smaller island with one of the richest cities (culture and diversity); and Bonaire, one of the largest Caribbean Islands, but with fewer residents. The ladies took a shore excur sion of each island and were pro vided historical information on each by their tour guide. They were amazed at the low incidents of crime as homes are ieft open and unlocked and keys are often left in unlocked vehi cles In addition to the shore ex cursions cruise ship provided entertainment and dining and the ladies report enjoying all of it. ?tJI'I' !>INc; for contact Coach Reggie Cobb @ ' WI Tjjftltlr!
