Former Citv Emplovee Files Age Discrimination lawsuit BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Earlier this month, an at torney representing a foi:rner City of Tampa employee filed a discrimination lawsuit The lawsuit alleges that the em ployee is a victim of age dis crimination. Attorney Mark Herdman filed the lawsuit on beof 61-year-old Kenneth Perry, who retired from the City of Tampa in August of 2010. Perry formerly served as the Com:mmiity Affairs Man ager. Prior to that position, he served as the EEO/Labor Relations Manager. He was a City employee for nearly 30 years. In the lawsuit, Perry althat his position was eliminated as part of a reduc tion in force. Perry could apply for other vacant posi tions within the City. Perry said in the lawsuit that he ap plied for the position of Lead Employee Relations Special-Meeting KENNETH PERRY ... Files Age Bias Lawsuit ist, a position that mirrored his former position. However, Perry alleges in the lawsuit that on June 18, 2010, he was informed that the City decided not to fill the position. Instead, the decision was made to borrow an employee from a different department to assist in per sonnel matters. The lawsuit states Perry was informed during the same meeting that his layoff status was reduced from one year to two months. His tenure with the City ended on August 23, 2010. In the lawsuit, Perry al leges that although he was the most qualified applicant, he was not retained due to his age. He said the person chosen for the position is in her 40s and does not possess the same or better qualifica tions as he does; "The City's contention it chose not to fill the position, but rather to borrow another employee, violates its rules/regulations and was a pretext for age discrimina tion. "The plaintiff's age was a determining factor in the de fel;ldant's decision not to place the plaintiff in the Lead Employee Relations Special ist position, therefore, vio lated the plaintiff's right under the FCRA," the lawsuit stated. The case was filed in state court rather thari federal court. Perry is demanding a jury trial. Saunders librarv Foundation Meets Jan. 21 The Robert W. Saunders, Sr. Library Foundation, Inc.

He entered a guilty plea in October on one count of public corrup tion, a wire fraud scheme to deprive the public of honest services. Members of the FBI arrested former officer, Anthony Foster, 40, in June 2011, and charged him with extorting moJ;ley and gifts from a Confidential Informant (CI). A 13-year veteran, Foster was assigned to the Homicide Sq'uad, and is accused of using his position in law enforcement to help a (CI) lighter sen.tences by contactiJ,1g officials > on the Cl's behalf. In ::!i exchange, Foster received gifts. LL As part of his sentence, U. S. District Judge Steven < D. Merryday ordered Foster to pay $soo, the ANTHONY FOSTER ... 2 years in federal prison amount of money not recovered during the tion. He faced a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. -. According to the plea agreement,_ in 2009 and through. June 2011, Foster made it known to one ofhis sources facing criminal charges, that he would contact judges and Assistant State Attorneys and provide positive infor mation about the person. In exchange for his help, Foster told the informant that he wanted cash and property. Foster received a cash payment of $7,075 from the person on April 6th. On April 15th, he received $325 in cash and a 40:-inch flat screen television. Special _agents with the Fe9,eral Bureau of Investigation were investigating the case The meeting was monitored and recorded. After receiving the cash and property, Foster placed a telephone call on behalf of the information to an Assistant State Attorney in Hernando County. During the call, Foster identified himself as a detective with the St. Petersburg Police Department. He also encouraged other officials ln the department to contact the same attorney and provide positive information about the informant. Military Veteran Accepts Overseas Assignment BY IRIS B.

But what does it mean to a nation that has an estimated 134 to 150 million jobs to go around between a population of approximately 311 million able-bodied human beings? We're talking about America. Taking into account the 39 percent of the population that is 18 years of age and under and that is 65 years of age or older, what that means is if every job in our nation was filled right now, there would still be 6o to 40 million Americans, ages 19 to 64, who would be unemployed. Are you listening? Moreover, when economists talk about: "full em_ ployment," they are allowing for a 2 .to'7 percent un. employment rate. Such a figure would no doubt include any of you who are currently unemployed. In truth, there has never been "full employment" for Black people, white people, or anyone else in the United States of America since the end of slavery. Are you listemng? So, what does that say regarding what many politicians are talking about? Sadly enough, employment in America or any other economy boils down to "survival of the fittest," a negative Wizard of Oz place where no one in his or her right mind wants to reside. Therefore, we urge our readers to do everything within your power to make yourselves skillfully fit to secure a gainful livelihood, even if that means working for yourselves. If you're listening, and if you understand, get up and begin to change your life. Pres. Obama Goes To Disnev World P lenty of people would say he was in Disney World already, referring to the Alice-in-Wonderland shenanigans of Capitol Hill. But our Commander-in-Chief recently visited America's most favorite theme park hopefully not only for some "R&R," but for an opportunity to share with_ fellow Americans a new plan to make billions of dollars. Disney World is no stranger to celebrities of globalnote. After all, before his untimely demise, performer Michael Jackson virtually lived at Disney World, he loved it so much. And who can forget former Soviet Union Premier Nikita Khrushchev who demanded to be taken Disneyland on his first and only visit to America. But as we stated previously, President Obama's visit will not be all fun and games. His attenin Orlando was serious. Not only did he talk about ways to boost travel and tourism, rumors have it he may have begun his much-anticipated juggernaut of a Democratic campaign for his reelection. Surely, President Obama's critics would say they could find reasons to roast their current president. But if historians are correct, President Obama's detractors are going to have to dig and dig deep to make their case against one of America's busiest and most successful Chief Executives. Trulv Honoring King nother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday has passed and Black people as a race of people have celebrated it as we usually do. We have had breakfasts; parades, programs, parties and a day off from work. I am going to assume that I am right when I say that the Dr. King Holiday is to honor the man. All of the named things listed above that honored Dr. King on his special day are good. But! I personally don't believe that these activ ities honor lhe man. I don't know Dr. King personally, but I carefully observe his work, his efforts, his goals and the other things he did. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn't about breakfasts, he wasn't about programs, parades or' par-How do you know when a society is in moral trouble? Its police officers begin to forget that they are the "good guys." Former St. Petersburg po lice Detective Anthony Foster has been convicted of extorting money and other items from a police inform ant. For his crimes, Foster is going to prison for two years. With good behavior, should he survive, the former police officer could serve less time. That's if he survives. Prison ers are traditionally not kind to former police officers. You can understand why. But can you understand what would cause a man or woman of the Law to turn against the very laws and constitution he or she swore to uphold? No doubt, you've seen the movie Training Day, that brutal anti-p olice feature, which finally earned its star Denzel Washington an Academy award. And if you've seen the movie, you recall how savage Washington's character was por trayed. Denzel played the role of a turned rogue. Perhaps, if you were a po lice officer and saw that movie with your family, you hastened to tell them while ties, not. in the least bit. Dr. King was eternally dedicated to uplifting hu manitY ; human rights for all people, bringing about liberty, freedom and justice for all humah beings. Dr. King worked tire lessly toward these ends. He was just as dedicated to try ing to eradiCate poverty. Having the United States live up to the promises it made to American citizens in the pre amble to the Constitution, as well as, the United States Constitution itself. A chief tactic used by Dr. King in trying to achieve his goals was public demonstra tion. These demonstrations came in many forms, but never as a parade, a pro gram, a party or as a day off from work. Dr. King believed so sin cerely in his goals until he 1n the movie theater, "Most cops don't act that way." However, just equally per haps, if you were a cop and had been watching that movie by yourself, you found yourself saying to yourself, "Yep, that's us alright! So, what has happened to "Officer Friend.}.y," the kindly police officer who wore white gloves, had a big smile, who cheerily directed traffic, and who radiated a spirit of pub lic guardianship and trust? I heard a young police of ficer say, "Officer Friendly got his brains bloWn out! No more Marshall Dillon! Now-a-days, say more mod_ ern police officers, "It's diffi cult to tell the good guys from the bad guys." It seems many police of the 21s t century have chosen to forget that the difference between them and criminals boils down tq the fact that criminals may well be pro tected by the Law, but police professionals are the em blems, symbols, and guardians of the Law. Along with the badge the y wear and the gun they tote is the con stitution of these United States, which every police of ficer is sworn to represent and uphold! If I'm lying, tell me now! But former St. Petersburg police Detective Anthony Foster is going to prison for A cause that has benefited ;: all Black people regardless z of economic and social sta-; tus. His effort opened a lot of doors for Black people. Granted, Dr. King had help from other people and other .... N If we really want to honor Dr. King, then let's use his day to p.elp complete the work that he started. It is a day to emphasize love and respect for each other. Dr. King firmly believed that we should love each other. If is the time to take on an unjust cause in our neigh borhood or city. It is a time to do mass cleanup in our neighborhoods. It is a time to do work free of charge for the elderly, the sick and the dis advantaged. It is a time to do volunteer work with organizations that do charity work. There are other similar activities that we can engage in. If Dr. King could see these things being done, it would make him much hap pier than the_ things we do now.

Elia Describes Process ThatMav Have led To The 'I' Middleton High Received BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Hillsborough County School District Superintendent MaryEllen. Elia and School Board Member Doretha Edgecomb met with the Sentinel Editorial Board last week. In spite of all the pluses that the School District re ceived on the high school FCAT results ; there were concerns about those that re ceived lesser grades. All the schools in the county re ceived As or Bs except Leto which received a 'C' and Mid dleton received a 'D.' Supt. Ella said there are several components that could contribute to the lesser grade at Middleton. Middle ton has never received an 'F' grade, but did move up to a 'C' for the 2010 school year. Ms. Elia explained that Middleton is one of those schools under the scrutiny of the State's Dept. of Educa tion. Also, Middleton has lost a number of (at least 30) teachers, which causes a readjustment for students., And, there is much pressure on the remaining teachers to perform. However, there are incentives to get and keep in structors at the lower scoring schools. Board member Bishop James H. Howell asked if the teachers are receiving the MARYELLEN ELlA ... Superintendent, Hillsborough District Schools proper training. Supt. Elia said $15-$20 million is spent on training in 16 compo nents. Ms. Ella added that Blake dropped from an 'A; in 2010 to a 'B' in 2011 because of the State's method of calculating scores. Edgecomb stated that there has not been a lack of support at Middleton to help students prepare for the FCAT. There is the extended learning program for stu dents to study on Saturday. The attendance !'ate has increased and behavior rate has improved at Middleton, causing the academic rate to improve, Ms. Elia said. There are some additional changes that the District hopes to implement that will help the students when they reach 10th grade (when the FCAT is administered). There are plans to help with DORETHA EDGECOMB ... School Board Member the academic and social tran sition from 8th to 9th grade. For instance, 1 counselor for the 9th grade students to help with course selection and when there's a problem with the classes. Board members Kay Andrews .and Wilbert Malphus continued their push for a vocational school in the inner city. Ms. Elia in formed the board that some students are being transported to Erwin for technical training. Randolph Kinsey questioned the make-up of the staff awarding contracts. Ms. Andrews asked for the breakdown of African-Amer icans with district contracts. Rubin Padgett asked what can be done to keep better teachers at these schools to stimulate students. Ms. Elia and Ms. Edgecomb meet with the Board several times during the year. Incident At Hard Rock Casino Upsets Patron BY IRIS B.

When ilie broiliers thought about ilieir failier being dead they concluded iliat Joseph would take revenge on iliem (vs.15). In life sometimes the peo ple who did you wrong may realize iliat you are in a posi tion to take revenge on iliem. When you know what you know, you don't have to worry about getting revenge. They made up a story to tell Joseph pretending it was the words of their father telling Joseph to forgive his broiliers (vv.16, 17). When people can't see that God's hand is on your life they will think that it was for some oilier reason you have not sought revenge for what iliey did to you.

Loca Entenainer's Return Home Binersweet Billy Dee Williams and Set Hudson. No matter how busy he is, every year Jesse "Jet Set" Hudson returns to his hometown of Tampa, Florida from Hollywood, California to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This year, as he was driving the 2,534 miles along Interstate 10, he received a call from one of his 8 sisters that his second oldest sister, Louise Harris, had died. Shewas73. Jet Set said she had been in good health until a year ago, when a bad reaction from a flu shot sent her to the hospital and into a series of respiratory problems. In 2010 and 2011, Jet Set has been very busy, with appearances on the "WorkA-Holics" show, and the filming of two vide-os on YouTube that have received more than a million hits since they first appeared. He also landed a casting role in a film called "The Trace," starring Billy Dee Williams. "My sister's death will pro long my stay in Florida, and she was the first of my 8 sis ters to pass. Jet Set said instead of handouts, he wants to give people the means to create their own business so they can spread the wealth to others. "I want to be a link in a long chain of success for a lot of people. Anyone willing to work hard and not give up can be successful. "It has taken me a long time to get my foot in the door in Hollywood, and although I'm not mainstream yet, I'm closer and that only makes me work harder." Jet Set said if everyone just stays with Jesus, good things will always happen. "First, you have to have faith in-Jesus, then have faith in yourself. If you want something bad enough, you will get it if you are willing to make some sacrifices and not quit;" Funeral arrangements for Ms. Harris are pending. ,_Only 10:30 A ;M.-,3:0(lRM.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Motivational Speaker, Donald L. Dowridge, Jr., said although the first part of his life turned in a negative direction, he still knew of the contributions African Americans had made in the history of this country. Now, entering another part of his life Dowridge, said it's important this knowledge be maintained, and spread through all Black communi ties. "We know some forms of Black History is being taught in schools, but there is a lot left out, and the young people not attending school need to know where their freedoms came from." Dowridge said a lot of sac rifices were made by African Americans who came to this country as slaves, and some of their names are either unknown or forgotten. "As I started reading about these men and women, I became fixed on Abolishionist Frederick Douglass. The more I read about him, the more I wanted to know. "I felt compelled to take it a step further, and decided to put together a stage perfor-ABOUSHIONIST FREDERICK DOUGLAS inance with myself acting as Frederick Douglass." Dowridge said for months, he grew his hair and beard to look as much like Douglass as he could, then poured him self into every piece of docu mentation he could find. "I found out he was born in Maryland, and spent a lot of time in Baltimore. I found out just how close his relationship was with President Abraham Lincoln. "Frederick Douglass was a great ambassador and traveled all over Europe and Canada, and returned to the United States to share the knowledge he gained on those trips." Dowridge first portrayed Donald L. Dowridge, Jr. as Abolishionist Frederick Douglass. Douglass atthe Straz Center in 2010. Since then, he has toured throughout the Midwest and East Coast, per forming before mixed audi ences. "What I'm working on now is performing at schools so they will know the impact Douglass had on our future." Dowridge said he would also like to portray Dr. Martin Luther, King, Jr., and other famous African Americans in the future.

"We've been wrestling with our structure of county government for a long time," said Subadan. "What we've done is separated health and social serv ices. We did that because the health care plan, and ex pected changes in that area, is a separate issue from so cial services. Subadan said what's going to change in social services will be to move away from handouts and assist clients in becoming self-suf ficient. ANTONIA BARBER Manager of the University Area Community Center and Homeless Recovery Center. We want that model throughout the entire social services network.

"We will be making big changes in our. interaction with clients. We want them to feel comfortable when they come in seeking serv ices. I want them to feel hopeful that they will get what they are looking for. "The clients will begin to notice subtle changes in the system, and I'm committed to reducing the waiting time. I don't want to see people standing in line at 4 a. m. waiting to be seen." Subadan said no one has lost any level of position in the changes. "This move will have no impact on staff. Staff members will be getting addi tional training, but there won't be any layoffs. We're seeking staff input on if we're meeting our goals and objec tives."

Strange Headache Triggers Built-Up Anger When you're angry, all you r muscles tense up, in cluding those in the back of your neck and scalp. The prolonged contraction of the head and neck muscles causes a tight band-like sen sation around your head, which is a classic sign of a tension headache. Head It The next time that you're simmering, take in a deep breath; hold it for 3-5 seconds while press ing together the thumb and index finger on one of your hands. Then exhale slowly through parted lips, until all the air has been drained from your lungs. Repeat 2 or 3 times. This soothing move stops you from tensing your neck and shoulder muscles, which has been shown to bring on a headache. Your Lunch A turkey sandwich with a slice of cheddar, a diet soda, and a small piece of dark chocolate may make for a waistlinefriendly meal, but for headache sufferers, it's a decidedly unhealthy combo. All these foods contain chemicals with the potential to trigger migraines. Head It Off-. Keeping a food diary can be helpful in identifying headache trig gers. Once y ou suspect a food may be to blame, try elimi nating it from your diet and see whether it alleviates your symptoms. Co-Worker's Fragrance Even if you think it smells nice, just a little whiff can bring on head-splitting pain. Odors reach the center of your brain via direct nerve pathways from your nose.

Obama On Hair salons 2-Year-Oid Black Mll Dav: Evervone Scientist Knows Can Serve, Evervone unemoloved Phvsics And Chemistrv Can Help Out WASHINGTON-Pres. Barack Obama evoked Martin Luther King, Jr.'s own words about public service Monday as Pres. Obama and his family celebrated the life of the late civil rights leader with a volunteer project. The president, along with wife, Michelle Obama and daughter, Malia, joined other volunteers at Browne Education Center in Washington During brief remarks, the president said there was no better way to honor Dr. King than to do something on behalf of others. He also acknowledged the controver sy surrounding a quote on the new MLK memorial in Washington, which is being changed amid criticism that it did not accurately reflect Dr. King's words. Pirate Black Radio Station Gets Raided FORT MYERS, FL Mild mannered community activist Albert Knighten found himself in handcuffs last month when police and fed eral agents raided his home and shut down a pirate radio station he operated out of a spare bedroom. Supporters say his barebones oper.ation filled an important niche in a predom inantly Black section of Fort Myers, a community whose residents often feel overlooked and underserved by commercial radio. The retired Navy air traffic controller, now facing a felony charge of operating the station without a license, is front and center in the efforts of a national community radio advocacy group to high light a law that clears more space on crowded radio dials and gives low-power operators the first opportunity in more than a decade to get licensed. to start taking applications for the new stations sometime this fall. Philadelphiabased Prometheus Radio Project, which advocates for community stations, is rais ing awareness of the nity and what it believes is the need for more low-power stations that serve narrow audiences, often just n eigh borhoods. Operating out of his small house in the hard-scrabble Dunbar neighborhood with a 40-foot antenna affixed to the roof, Knighten, 44, programmed his station with an eclectic mix of public-affairs shows, neighborhood announcements, old-school R&B tunes and even church services, geared toward the elderly and others who can't afford or don't use the Internet.

Polk Countv Matriarch's Lite Celebration Held Bertha King Johnson, affectionately known as Miss Bert, believed in praising the Lord while she had a chance. Born on January 25, 1912, in Monticello, she was known by many for her strong, beautiful voice that filled the various churches within her resident commu nity of Polk City and abroad, her faithfulness to the Lord her diligent church dance, and the positive, nurturing seeds that she has sown into the lives of many youth over the years. She was a member of Bethel A.M.E. Church until its closing, after which, she placed membership at Macedonia M.B. Church. Mrs. Johnson was a seamstress in the area of sewing. Her daughter and _.. granddaughter remembered how she made a lot of their school clothes and how she would look at a d ress in the store, then go home and cut a pattern using newspaper, from which she would make the dress. She also made doll clothes, quilts, hats and more. She was an example in word and ways to the young ladies in her family in how to dress, how to take care of their skin and hygiene, how to accessorize their outfits; and taught all children to honor their mother, father and elders, that they may live a long life. As her family made plans for her Centennial Celebration of Life to be held on January 28th, on the morning of January 2, 2012, just 23 days before her woth birthday, Miss Bert transitioned into her 'new life'. She passed away, peace fully, at the Highlands Lake Center in Lakeland where she had been a resident for several years. MRS. BERTHA KING JOHNSON Of her age at the time of her life transition, her pastor, Theorius Axson, stated, "She was closer to the age of 100 than she was to the age of 99; so to me, she was 100." Miss Bert was the biological Mother of three children: the late Herman Johnson J:r., Marion Johnson-Zorn of Lakeland, and MaryCatherine Gordon .(Sylvester) of Rochester, NY. But, she served as a second Mother to several gen-' erations of children who grew up in the Polk City community. She and her Mother, the late Mary Turner, who passed away at the age. of 1oo, also served as 'raising parents' to one of their granddaughters, (from the age of two months old) Cynthia Zorn-Shaw (Michael), the Florida Sentinel Bulletin's Polk County Columnist. She leaves many cherished memories with them, a host of other relatives and friends. On Sunday, January 8, 2012, a homegoing. service celebrating the life of Bertha King Johnson was held at Macedonia M. B. Church in Polk City.
