The individuals allegedl y filed fraudulent tax returns and re ceived money not owed to them by the U S. Government. According to the U. S. At torney's Office Middle District of Florida one of those defen dants had been previously ar rested for tax fraud. She was arrested on similar charges while out of jail on bond await ing sentencing. Ms. Shawntrece Sims, 31, was arrested on August nth and is being held without bond with a hold for the U S Mar shal According to court docu ments filed by the U.S. Attor ney s Office Ms. Sims signed a plea agreement on previous charges on February 14th. She appeared before U. S. Magis trate Judge Thomas G. Wilson on March 17th and pleaded guilty to one count of making a false claim and m:te count of mail fraud. During the court appear ance, Ms. Sims allegedly ad mitted to preparing and electronically filing false in come tax returns, which to taled $263,004.00 in 2008. She was awaiting sentencing and released on a $10,000 bond. Most Recent Charges The U. S. Attorney's Office alleges that while released from jail on bond, Ms. Sims was involved in the filing of numerous false tax returns during the first half of 2011. She allegedly received $409,883.00 in fraudulent tax refunds from the Internal Revenue Service this year, the document stated. Between January 29th and May 2011, Ms. Sims and other defendants are accused of filing 52 fr a udulent tax returns. Ms. Sims is alleged to have filed multiple false claims on behalf of 7 deceased people all with the same last name two days after she signed the plea agree ment. Investigators said Ms. Sims forwarded the refunds to an address in West Palm Beach and then had the checks deliv ered to her. Investigators said she also used her own address as well as that of a motel to pre vent police from tracing the IP address of the computer back to her. Tubal Ligation Reversal According to the court doc uments, Ms. Sims allegedly used money obtained by fraud ulent means for a medical pro cedure. She allegedly attempted to become pregnant prior to sentencing SHAWNTRECE SIMS ... Being held without bond Court documents stated that she paid $6,6oo for a tubal ligation surgery despite having no job, no money, and no as sets. Investigators obtained payment records that showed Ms. Sims paid $4,500 in cash and the remaining balance on a pre-paid Mastercard issued in her name on March 31, 2011. The card had reportedly been loaded with $3.453 on March 17, 2011, the same day she appeared before Judge Wilson and entered a guilty plea. Investigators said Ms. Sims received $3,460 in cash from cards on February 19, 2011. Previous Arrests Police said Ms. Sims and other defendants were involved in connection with 44 counts of tax fraud during the 2008 tax season. She and other defen dants allegedly obtained the identification of individuals, both living and dead and filed dozens of false income tax re turns. The investigation revealed that the fraudulent tax returns were claimed on 1099 tax forms and listed the filers, oc cupations as barbers, hair styl ists, lawn care and caretakers. The income ranges were be tween $10,000 and $32,000, which resulted in the federal government owing the filer a refund. Some of the refunds were direct deposited into personal accounts, some placed on pre paid debt cards, and some mailed to physical addresses Police said on May 12, 2009, Ms. Sims filed a 1040 Individual Tax Return in the name of "J. C.," using his name and social security num ber, but her home address. The return showed the government owed "J. C." $6,610. Investigators learned that "J.C." had not worked since suffering a stroke in 2002, did not earn any income in 2008, had never met Ms. Sims, and had not authorized her to use his personal information on his behalf. He was unaware that a tax form had been filed in his name and did not receive any of the refund The prepaid card with $6,910 was mailed to Ms. HART Board Chair Heads.

However, the President's historic > speech was immediately questioned by Republican adverffi sarles, one of whom was Florida Senator, Marco Rubio. > With baby face and big brown eyes, he gazed into the telW evision camera and cooed, "It won't work! It won't work!" fa Well, at last, voters are waking up and are telling their Con::1: gressional representatives, "Stop telling us what won't work, en and start telling us what in the world will work!" Thus far, in :::i m Republican response, you could hear a mouse hiccup in a ::::;:) cotton factory. a. Here's the problem. Many of us are simply sick and tired Z of seeing and hearing everything President Obama says, inti eluding "good-morning," become subject to Republican at..J tack. If the President was wrong, we would be among the S first to say so. But how could we forget that Bush-era tax cuts m to the wealthy and to corporations created few if any jobs for ..J working people? And who could forget deregulations that caused a mortgage and financial industry meltdown? Did j:: President Obama do that? Z We don't think so. m And finally, how could we overlook GOP governors across ic( America who refused to accept stimulus money (which could C have put millions of people back to work) simply because it 0: was a Barack Obama idea? In reality, FDR thought ofit first. g But the bottom line is simply this: STOP TELLING US I.L WHAT WON'T WORK! We know what won't work. YOU WON'T WORK! Rick Perrv, Galileo And The Kin s 11 Comed C oming soon to Tampa, Florida: The Kings of Comedy! Do we mean the group, which includes Cedric the Entertainer? No, we're talking about the group, which in-cludes Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. As a matter of record, we're told the second group (which abounds with a bevy of Republican presidential wannabes sniping at each other) would put the first group (which includes Steve Harvey, D. L. Hughley, and the late Bernie Mack) to shame and silence, especially when Texan Rick Perry starts talking about the late, great Galileo Galilei. Galileo Galilei (pronounced Gal-ih-layee) is the fellow who had the nerve to tell the Catholic Church that the world was round, which earned him an evening with the Spanish Inquisition. Well, Governor Rick Perry (no relation to Governor Rick Scott) who is presently running for president was 'O:t overheard at a debate in California, to explain his unwillingW ness to support global warming by saying, "Galileo got out-0 voted for a spell." As if a spell had been cast over them, the audience and Perry's fellow debaters fell quiet as tomb. Another Black Institute Bites The Dust I t would appear that in the not too distant future it will appear that Black peo ple have no history of ever liv ing in Tampa. By now, everybody knows that the city lost radio station WTMP after 57 years of Black program ming. The loss ofWfMP is an other loss to be added to a growing list oflost Black insti tutions. We lost Central Avenue, a street that was a Black institu tion. The street was lined with Black-owned businesses and was both a social and an eco nomic district for Black peo ple. Main Street, Albany Avenue, Nebraska Avenue, 22nd Street, 34th Street and not Lake Avenue have been able to replace Central Avenue as a Black institution. There was the Community Federal Savings and Loans lo cated in Tampa Park Plaza. It was referred to and thought of as the Black Bank. Well, it is gone. Central Life Insurance Co. sold almost every Black person a life policy. I doubt if anybody in Tampa holds a Central Life Policy now. It is another Black institution that no longer exists. The Kid Mason Recreation Center was a Black institution. Its weekend dances for chil dren were legendary. Young sters came from surrounding towns to attend these dances. Nothing has emerged to re place these social events for children. It's another Black in stitution that has gone on. Blake and Middleton High Schools were Black institu tions. They used to mean so much to the entire Black com munity. Both schools were cfosed down for more than 30 years. Both schools have been rebuilt and bear their old Richard Poner 11183 -18351: Black Magician And Black Magic P erhaps, like me, you have not seen nor heard of any Blacks who became popular as magicians. In fact, Harry Houdini was not the only popular magician during his era. Indeed, Richard Potter, a Black man during the 18th and 19th centuries, was almost as famous as Houdini during the 20th century. Born on the Boston, Mas sachusetts estate of Sir Charles Frankland, a Royal tax collector for the Port of Boston, Richard Potter was the son of the estate's former slave, Dinah Potter and George Stinson, a white townsman. Having gained her freedom from Frankland in 1770, Dinah Potter chose to remain and work on the estate. As a young boy, Potter be came servant of the Dillaway family until he was 15, and signed up to be a cabin boy on a ship headed for London, England. There, he worked with a circus where he met and assisted John Rannie, a ma gician and ventriloquist. After traveling throughout Europe with Rannie, the two of them came to America in 1800. Now in his late teens, Potter began to perform as a ven triloquist and magician on his own in taverns throughout New England. Charging 25 cents (around $4.00 in today's money), Potter patterned his acts after Rannie except he would throw his voice to ap pear to talk with horses, pigs, dogs, and any other animal available. In 1808, Potter met and married his wife, Sally Harris who became a part of Potter's magic act, singing, dancing, and assisting with Potter's magic tricks. Among the tricks Potter performed was the swallowing of molten lead, passing his hands and feet over flames, bending a hot poker with his bare feet and touching it with his tongue. One of Potter's popular performances included his thrusting a sword down his throat, draWing out yards of names. But, they aren't the Black institutions they once were Blacks had two hospitals that were Black institutions. They were Clara Frye and the Lily White. Neither of these two institutions exists any more. The Urban League ex isted in our city for ages and it too was a Black institution. But, not anymore. The Urban League no longer exists in the City of Tampa. I ask you, is it any surprise that WfMP, a Black institu tion of 57 years in Tampa, no longer exists? What the closing of all of these Black institu tions over the years has done is made the Florida Sentinel Bulletin a more important and a more influential Black insti tution because it has stood the test of time and still exists. It is important that the Black community do all that it can do to make sure that the Florida Sentinel Bulletin con tinues to stand tall and carry the banner for the Black com munity. Black institutions just don't pop up overnight. But, rather they endure and persevere over a long period of time The Florida Sentinel Bulletin has done just that. multicolored ribbon, and then flames. He also per formed an East Indian Rope trick, legendary and presum ably impossible, by throwing a piece of rope into the air and climbing up the rope and dis appearing. Potter and Sally also performed juggling, bird calls, comical songs, skits, and dances together. In 1814, Potter, Sally and their two sons moved to Andover, New Hampshire where they built a home on a 175 acre farm. The home was built as a near replica of the Frankland estate where Potter :was born. There, he raised cattle, horses, and prized pigs. By 1817, Potter was charg ing $1 admission to his shows and was traveling throughout America and Canada, earning the respect of Black and whites. Historians describe him as the "best among Amer ica's first native-born ventrilo quists and magicians." After suffering numerous tragedies (deaths of two of his children, near financial ruin etc.), Potter retired from per forming in 1833. He died in 1835, and Sally died the fol lowing year. Today, t>oth of them are buried in a small plot on their estate where a roadside his toric m,arker is located. Now we can add the name of Richard Potter to the top of a list of prestigious magicians, a list, which includes Harry Houdini and David Copperfield. Presto! Harambee! Producers threatened to call for a commercial while a moderator nervously cleat-ed .his throat. What in the world could Perry mean by his remark? Perhaps, he used Galileo's discovery and its resounding "You laaah" as an example that even the truth gets hooted down, every once in a while, or maybe, he didn't mean that, at all. Who knows? But this thing we do know. Listening to Republican presidential candidates duel with each other while doing a rendition of Richard Nixon is at times, more hilarious than the Six 0' Clock News. Would we vote for either of them? Now, that's another editorial.

c Hospital Addresses Judge Dismisses lawsuit Elimination 01 Minoritv Filed over Amendment VI Management Position BY IRIS B. HOLTON whelmingly supported dur-BY TAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer Tampa General Hospital has eliminated a key man agement position vital to Tampa's African American communitY. The position was Manager of Minority Business Enter prises with a salary of about $10o,ooo a year. Its pur pose was to ensure minority businesses have an equal op portunity to bid for contract work at the hospital. Tampa General's Presi dent Ron Hytoff an nounced at a recent Board meeting he would do away with the position to cut costs. He met with Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., and the hospi tal's Chief Financial Officer on Wednesday confirming those plans Commissioner Miller says "Ron Hytoffs ration ale is that TGH inherited a $20 million cut with Medicare and Medicaid and they are not filling any va cant positions except those that are vital to the hospital; such as nursing (and other clinical ]obs)." According to Commissioner Miller, Hytoff says he will instead have Jasmine Brown, an African American analyst at the hos pital, carry out the duties of the MBE department. Miller says he suggested the hospital go a step further by promoting Brown to a position of supervisor, which would allow her to become more active in the commu nity with Black-owned busi nesses and better understand what services those businesses provide. He says the upgrade in title would also allow Brown to provide the sup port Black-owned businesses need to improve their chances of being selected to do business with the hospi tal. James Ransom, a Board member of the Tampa Or-COMMISSIONER LESMILLER ganization of Black Affairs, says the issue of equity and fairness with Black-owned businesses and Tampa Gen eral has been ongoing for years. "By not hiring some one to fill the manager's po sition, on the surface, appears to send the wrong message to the Black busi ness community about the hospital's commitment to have a successful Minority Business Enterprise pro gram. "However, the objective is for the hospital to have a commitment to actually spend money with the Black business community. If Mr. Hytoffs intention is to commit to doing that, then that is what the Black busi ness community really wants; whether they have a manager or not." John Dunn is a spokesperson for Tampa General. He says the hospital has taken steps to ensure every department will follow the proper process regarding the MBE program and has also brought in its Corporate Compliance Office to monitor and audit their activity. The results of this audit will be reported to the CFO and CEO. This issue with TGH was raised by Tampa business owner Kim Jackson fol lowing a 2007 report stating the hospital's $140 million awarded in contracts, only $4,599 was spent with Black owned businesses.

But, I remain concerned that w some politicians stubbornly refuse to accept the people's :::! will. And continue to use tax payers' money to fight the new anti-gerrymandering standards in order to protect their own jobs. On Friday, a U. S. District Judge dismissed a lawsuit pertaining to Amendment 6. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and Congresswoman Corrine Brown filed the lawsuit. The lawsuit was based on the question of whether Amendment VI to the Florida Constitution violate Article I (the Elections Clause) of the U.S. Constitu tion? U. S. Judge Ursula Ungaro stated in her ruling, "The state Constitution au thorizes the people to partic ipate in the lawmaking process. Article XI permits voters to attach new condi tions to the exercise of the legislature's various powers. Once the people of Florida act to limit the legislature's options through a Constitu tional Amendment, the new Constitutional proVIsiOn binds the legislature." Individuals named in the lawsuit stated that Amend ment VI prevents lawmakers from drawing congressional SENATORARTHENIA JOYNER districts that protect incum bents. Judge Ungaro also said that on its face, "The amend ment prohibits the legislature from intentionally favoring or disfavoring a po litical party or an incumbent, and from intentionally deny ing racial and language mi norities an equal opportunitY to participate in the legisla tive process." Attorney Arthenia Joyner, one of the defen dants in the lawsuit said, "I was very pleased to hear of Judge Ursula Ungaro's decision to uphold Amend ment VI which was over"Our government repre sentatives took an oath to uphold the Constitution, of which Amendment VI is now a part. It's a pity it took a fed eral judge to remind them of their duty. I suggest they begin to listen."

Buccaneer Season Opener Anvthing But Spectacular w Ill. w en c en w :::1 1-On Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wanted badly to defeat th e Detroit Lions. The Lions had kept them out of the playoffs in 2010 when the Bucs lost 23-20. It was ant ici pat ed that the Bucs, especial l y with the new draft picks would handle the Lions and make the crowd at Raymond James Stadium yell for more. But it didn't turn out like that. The Bucs lost their season opener 27-20, and the game was never really com petitive The Buccaneer offense looked pitiful for three quar ters, and the defense looked worse for the entire game. On a day the Bucs were sup posed to honor the late Lee Roy Selmon, they looked like they were never really prepared for the Lions Buc quarterback Josh Freeman finished the evening completing 28 of 43 C passes for 257 yards, 1 toucha: down and 1 interception. His LL C counterpart, Matthew z <( Stafford, finished 24 of 33 for 305 ya rds, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. The leadin g ground gainer for the Bucs was Freeman who gained 26 yar ds on four ca rries. LeGarrett Blount ran 5 times for 15 yards, and Earnest Graham carried the ball 6 times for 13 yards. Detroit's ground game totaled 126 yards and the Bucs could only muster 56 yards. Calvin "Megatron" Johnson had 6 catches for 88 yards and a pair of touch downs The Buccaneer touch downs came from an interception by Aqib Talib and a s-yard pass to Mike Williams. Next week the Bucs travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings in a 1 p. m game that will be televised locally. The Bucs didn't lose any ground in the NFC South, because the Saints, Falcons, and Panthers also lost their season openers. c en w :::1 1-Opponunistic 'Dogs Chase'Cats w > UJ c w ::I: en ::::i m :::1 a.

Burress Criticizes Coughlin, Others In Magazine PLA.XICO BURRESS NEW YORK -Plaxico Burress is critical of Giants coach Tom Coughlin, quarterback Eli Manning and fans for the way they reacted when he was sent to prison on a gun charge in the October issue of Men's Journal. Burress, now with the Jets, says he wished Coughlin had shown some concern when he met with h i m after accidentally shooting himself in the leg in November 2008 and adds that Coughlin is "not a real positive coach." Burress says he was disappointed Manning never visited him or tried to com municate with him while he served his 20-rnonth prison sentence. H e also says the cruel l etters he received from fans made him feel like "a huma n pincushion." Shaq savs He Told Celtics Not To Trade Perkins Shaquille O'Neal feels like a lot of Celtics fans do -that the Celtics shouldn't have traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City at the deadline last season.

CAMNEWfON Cam Newton had one of the greatest debut performances in NFL history on Sunday, but after the Panthers' 28-21 loss to the Cardinals, he was unhappy. One of the veteran leaders n the Panthers locker room taking that as a good sign om the rookie quarterback. "Cam is very disappointed," wide receiver Steve Smith said. 'I'm encouraged by that. Newton, who 'sjust a year removed from leading Auburn to a perfect season, was dejected about the loss. "The last time I lost a game was Navarro Junior College, Newton said What do y ou want me to say, it feels great? It is not a comfortable feeling for me. Panthers' Cam Newton Is Sweet In Defeat Brushing off criticism that he could not succeed as a pro passer, Newton shredded the Arizona secondary for 422 yards and accounted for all three of the Panthers' touchdowns. But the Cardinals took advantage of secondary and special teams breakdowns by the Panthers to claim a 28-21 victory and spoil the debut of the No 1 draft pick. Newton broke the record held by Peyton Manning (302) for passing yards by a rookie in Week 1 and equaled Matthew Stafford's record total for rookies Stafford, the No. 1 overall pick of Detroit threw for 422 yards against Cleveland in Week 10 in 2009. Ravs Finish sweep ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -James Shields and the Tampa Bay Rays got the sweep they needed to charge back into the playoff race. Shields came within two outs of his 12th complete game this season, B.J. Upton hit his first grand slam and the Rays routed the fading Boston Red Sox 9-1 on Sunday Tampa Bay moved within 3-1j2 games of the AL wild card leaders, sweeping the three-game series to go a season high 17 games over .soo at 81-64. The Rays have won 21 games in a row when scoring five runs or more. SERENA WILLIAMS NEW YORK -Already being outplayed by Sam Stosur in the U.S. Open final, the last thing Serena Williams needed was to lose a game for yelling during a point. That's exactly what happened early in the second set, leading to an argument between Williams and the chair umpire, a scene less ugly than -but reminiscent of-the American's tirade two years ago at the same tournament. In the end, Stosur beat Williams 6-2, 6-3 Sunday in a surprisingly lopsided upset for her first Grand Slam title. "I think I had one of my best days, Stosur said. I'm very fortunate to do it on this stage." "She played really, really well. She s a great player, and it's good to see," Williams said. "I tried niy hardest and she kept hitting winners and I was, 'Oh my God, what am I doing?'
