On Thursday morning, the Defense Attorneys began to present their case. The Shooting On May 23, 2010, a group of teenagers and adult chaperones gathered at Winthrop Barn, 11349 -Bloomingdale Blvd., in Riverview, for a high school graduation party. Police said more than 100 people attended, when fights broke out. During one of the fights, McCray was reportedly struck in the face. Police said McCray left the party as the chaperones were ejecting the fighters and returned with a handgun. He allegedly fired several shots into the crowd. Three people were hit by the gunfire. Devante Lamar Dallas, 18, a senior at Durant High School, was hit in the chest. He died at the scene. Two chaperones, Jeffrey Thomas, 44, and 23-year old De Ron Richardson, were also injured, but survived. Thomas was hit in the-lower back. He was treated and released at a local hospital. Richardson received a gunshot to the upper right chest area, but survived the injury. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office responded to the scene and began their investigation. Information obtained from witnesses identified McCray as one of the -shooters. McCray had fled the scene before police arrived. Later that day, McCray and his parents contacted the Hillsborough County KHAYRI McCRAY ... Facing three counts of attempted murder Sheriff's Office in reference to the shooting. After being interviewed, McCray was arrested. McCray, who was a senior at Spoto High School, was initially charged with one count of second-degree murder, and two counts of attempted second-degree murder. Although investigators learned that more than one person was shooting into the crowd that night, McCray is the only person who has been arrested. Some accounts said at least three people fired guns into the crowd. However, ballistic reports were unable to match the bullets that killed Dallas with the gun that McCray was using. The Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office modified the charge after receiving the ballistics report. Several witnesses testified during the first portion of the trial, with some offering testimony that contradicted what other said. During testimony, it became apparent that although the students were checked for weapons as they entered the party, their vehicles were not checked. Everyone who testified said the shooters exited the party before the shooting started. Court testimony revealed that at least two chaperones were armed and one chaperone fired shots at a vehicle as it left the scene following J. JACQUES A._ DARIUS, P.A ATTORNEY 813/930-2222 Accident & Injuries Employment Civil Rights Family Law Appeals 7211 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. Ste 228 DEVANTE DALLAS ... Killed during a shooting at a party May 23, 2010 the shooting. Witnesses also testified that a teenager with dread locks was observed with a gun and shooting. Other witnesses testified that they only saw the teenager with dreadlocks fir ing his gun. Another witness testified that Dallas had already been shot by the time McCray fired his weapon. All of the witnesses agreed that after the first shots rang out, gunfire seemed to be coming from everywhere. Now, the jury must decide which of the witnesses provided the most detailed account of the shooting. If convicted, McCray could face 30 years in prison on each charge. The case had not gone to the jury at press time. DeAnna Sheffield-Ward, Neil Armstrong, former Computer Mentors board member, Ms. Elizabeth Frasier, and Ralph Smith, founder and Executive Director of Computer Mentors are shown at the presentation of the award. Former board member Neil Armstrong won the Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero Award.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers, do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletln or the Publisher. An Overdue Memorial For Clara Frve F or almost a decade, discussions have continued about the, construction of a larger-than-life statue commemorating Tampa's premiere African Amer-ican registered nurse, Clara Frye. Members of the City of Tampa's Mayor's African American Advisory Committee even went so far as to identify property across the Hillsborough River from where the legendary Clara Frye Hospital once stood (property which is now the modern Blake High School) as an ideal site for the statue to be erected. In addition, conversations included the possibility of a commemorative plaque to be placed in memory of Nurse Fcye. Meanwhile, the once segregated Tampa General Hospital dedicated its ninth floor to Nurse Frye whose hospital was the first of its hospital facility to accept Black patients. However, just recently, Tampa's Riverwalk officials took a decisive step toward making certain the name of Nurse Clara Frye would be remembered for generations yet to be born. Sponsored by the Riverwalk Association, nine local historians chose five pioneers to be honored by bronze busts on the world-renowned Riverwalk. Clara Frye was among the chosen five. The Sentinel applauds the Tampa Riverwalk for proclaiming what we have long proclaimed: The naine of Nurse Clara Frye is a name, which should not only become a household word throughout Tampa-Hillsborough County, but should be introduced and regaled throughout the world. Her heroism the men, women, and children she saved regardless of race, creed, or color is itself worthy of a book and dramatization. Many a Black Tampan began life in the Clara Frye Hospital. Final construction will see Nurse Frye placed alongside busts of James McKay, Sr., Henry B. Plant, Vicente Martinez Ybor and others. Support Pres. Obama's Corporate Tax Cuts And Closure Of Loopholes P resident Obama's proposal to cut corporate taxes -and to close corporate tax loopholes most certainly deserves a bipartisan pat on the back by friends and foes alike. In a gesture of fairness and efficiency, the President's plan requires reducing the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent, eliminating oil and gas industry subsidies, and doing away with tax breaks for such things as, purchasing private airplanes and other tax shelter toys. Multinational corporations will no longer be able to avoid paying taxes on earnings made in Taiwan, Singapore or other foreign sites of corporate call. Is everybody happy? Not hardly. On the surface, President Obama's plan seems to be a compromise with Republican leaders who'd like to reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Indeed, the fact that such tax cuts would not increase the budget deficit would seem to make the plan hard to hate. However, certain Republican Party interests are already holding out for a 25 percent corporate tax rate. Seemingly, the statement "I prefer not to!" remains the Republican anthem. We urge our Congressional representatives to support President Obama's plan. What's more, we urge you, our readers and taxpayers to call your representatives and tell them you support the President's plan. After all, it's your money.

Hope fully, it won't be long before the invention that Ms. Gloria Wood found will be in use in hospitals and in stores for purchase. A Registered Nurse with H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Institute, Ms. Wood set out to find an easier way that patients can keep an IV site dry. According to Jarett S. Rieger, Esquire, MBA, Di rector, Office of Technol ogy Management and Commercialization (OTMC) and Associate General Counsel, Moffitt Cancer Center and Re search Institute, the invention presented by Ms. Wood is the first from a nurse. "That is very significant," he stated in a telephone in terview. "Our office has been in existence since 2003 and we've executed 67 licenses and formed 9 companies. There have been 40 new inventions from staff," he explained. Most of the inventions are cancer related. The mission of this office MS. GLORIA WOOD ... Patent pending on glove invention is to protect new inventions and commercialize the cancer related discoveries made at Moffitt Cancer Center, Rieger said. The HepLoc Dry Mitt is a glove of thin plastic that can be placed on the hand/forearm while a patient is bathing or shower ing. Or, it can be used by someone who has a hand/forearm wound. This invention has been with the U.S. Patent Office since 2009. Currently, Ms. Wood and the OTMC are working with a medical de vice company to develop samples to insure that the project is useful. Realizing that the latex/vinyl material used in current gloves because it's too tight and too thick, Ms. Wood says that was her inspiration to come up with ail idea for something bet ter. Working in various hospitals and with outpatients, Ms. Wood says it's difficult to keep IV sites dry. "The arm is sometimes wrapped in plastic, trash bags or plastic bags placed over the hand to keep the site dry," she said. After talking about her idea to friends, she was en couraged to seek a patent. She -has been working on that ever since. The native of Wadley, Alabama, after high school, Ms. Wood graduated from Southern Union State Junior College, University of Alabama and Florida State University. She has had several papers published and lectured on a number of other occasions. Ms. Wood is a member of the Oncology Nursing Sociecy, New Hope M. B. Church (Health Care Min istry and Gospel Choir) and Faces of Courage Support Group (committee member) . c: OJ 1: m c m -< c "T1 JJ -<

As improbable as these occurrences may sound, they represent a very real example of how we shape our futures through our actions without considering any possible rip ple effects. The consequences that we never think about when we do some of the things that we do. Every decision we make, regardless of how mundane or unconscious, ultimately changes our destiny and the destinies of those around us. Knowing this, it's hard for me to accept the notion that we're going through this experience without any control whatso ever of what becomes of our lives. Whenever someone makes a comment about people being in certain situations or going through certain trials and tribulations as being a part of some greater plan, I always have to ask, "what happened to free will?" I specifically remember being taught in Sunday School, we were given that. And since I can't come to terms with the idea of a divine creator playing those kinds of mind games with his creation, I'm left to conclude that man is either the victim or bene factor of his own choices. To buy into the concept that, regardless of what a per son does, his life is going to end up going a certain way means to me that there' s no point in trying at all. If you're pre-destined to succeed, then all you have to do is get out of bed every morning. And con versely, if you're pre-destined for failure, then tough luck. You are really wasting your time because God never liked you in the first place. I think people hold on to this idea of their future being pre-ordained because it makes disappointment and tragedy easier to deal with. If a person doesn't get the job he applied for, then "it wasn't meant to be." And if he dies unexpectedly at a relatively young age then, "it was his time to go." The thought that there's even a possibility that either of these outcomes weren't written in stone, never comes up in conversa tion. The truth is that nothing about life is pre-determined. It takes form as we go along. And since we all have to go through this experience together, the more we take time to consider how our decisions affect those around us, the better off we'll all be as a whole.

Loca Minister Follows God's Calling To Begin Church St. Peter Claver Receives $80,000 Matching Funds Grant s: )> ::0 (') :I: c.o Abundant Life Enrichment Church has begun to flour ish under the leadership of Reverend Randy Randolph, who has humbly accepted the diVine challenge to enrich lives through the word of God Reverend Randolph began his faith walk with a modest prayer to purchase a dream home with his life savings. He was not expecting God to answer his prayers in the manne r that He did when he asked for a new home. While searching for a home, Rev. Randolph had to face his imperfect past. An area once known for ungodly behavior, Rev. Randolph received confir mation that he would create a tabernacle where salvation and redemption would be gran ted According to Rev. Randolph, God' s revelation to him was simple and direct: "Your new home is one that I will reside in. If you trust in Me with all thine heart, I will direct your paths and together we" will restore and renew lives. With a humbled and obedient spirit, Rev. Randolph began the research on the building located at 4701 E. Hanna Avenue, Tampa, formerly known as "Glorio us." Acting in faith and believ ing in the matchless name of God, Rev. Randolph was able to obtain the information needed to commence the purchasing process. In his tearful testimony, he recalls, "I remember making what I thought was an incredulous offer, which was quickly accepted. It was at this point, that I knew for sure that my steps had been ordered and God's hand was truly in the midst." The building required REVEREND RANDY RANDOLPH much work, his personal finances had dv.rindled and there was no active member base. Facing these obstacles, the feeling of doubt easily set in. Rev. Randolph asked himself, "was this truly God?" Led by the scripture, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that might have it more abundantly." John 10:10. Rev. Randolph knew that Jehovah Jireh would provide and the only logical thing to do at this point was to continue the process. Utilizing his talents as a Contractor and his life mission as a newly ordained 'Reverend' (December 2010), the restoration process began on both he and the building and in the heart of Tampa; Abundant Life Enrichment Church was established. Abundant Life's purpose is to ensure everyone who desires a true relationship with God, can have one. Reverend Randolph reminds us of the importance of becoming familiar with the word of the living God in a manner that restores hope, peace and Hosted by """ ..... ,NDANT LIFE ENRICHMENT CHURCH Tampa, FL 33610 Host Pastor Randy Randolph happiness.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several months ago, members of the Remington College-Tampa Campus, kicked off a blood drive. The college also partnered with the Sickle Cell Disease Asso ciation of America (SCDAA) to raise awareness of the need for minority blood donors. The campaign is entitled "3 Lives," because three lives are can be saved with a pint of blood. The campaign has collected more than s,ooo pints of blood since it began. The blood drive will take place on Tuesday, March 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Remington College Tampa Campus is lo cated at 63o2 E.

His treat-ALGREEN Spokesman for '3 Lives Campaign' ment includes monthly blood transfusions. Green is the spokesman for the "3 Lives Campaign." "My goal is to get more people of color to become regular blood donors. Mi nority donors allow me and other sickle cell patients to manage our disease and live our lives," Green said.

ATTORNEY -AT LAW SPE C IAUZING IN: NURSING HOME NEGLECT PERSONAL INJURY PROBATE Anemia Foundation said, "These campaigns are tak ing place all over the coun try. It is very critical to establish these blood drives to assist people who are in desperate need of blood transfusions." Experts say that about 10% of those wishing to donate may be prevented from doing so because their hemoglobin levels are too low. They suggest that the po tential donors add iron-rich foods to their diets about two days before giving blood. Good sources of iron include meat, dried beans, peas, bread, pasta, dark leafy vegetables, dried fruits, or nuts. Frank Wolff, of Wellons Communications said, "While the primary goal of the '3 Lives Campaign' is to recruit minor ity donors, everyone is encouraged to attend the drive and donate blood." All blood collected will be used to help people in the Tampa Bay area. Last year, ABC named Remington College as its "2011 National Partner of the Year."

lite In The Flesh Living in this flesh is not an easy task. Every day brings a set of obstacles and challenges. that must be overcome. It does not matter who you are, where you are from, or what you have, there are going to be some challenges to living life in this body of flesh. This week's lesson from John 1:1-14 speaks of the challenges Jesus had to face when He came into th e world. John Jesus' existence prior to the creation of anything. He makes Jesus synonymous with the "Word". He writes that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with > God (vv. 1, 2). This estab-::!i lishes that there is only One f3 God. When all things were ;::, made there was only One, and that One was with God a: and was God. The Word had a part in the creation of all things. There was nothing made without the Word (vs. 3). The Word was not created as others, He was already in existence. In Him was life and that life was the light of men (vs. 4). Man may have been created, but he does not have life without the Word. The life .that Jesus gives also provides light. The light His life provides is not the light that is found in a light bulb. The light that His life provides is a light of revelation. Jesus provides His creation with a light that will guide them in truth and righteous ness. The light of the Lord leads you in the path of righteousness. It in darkness (vs. sJ. Wherever there is darkness, the light of God will shine bright. This light exposes injustices and evilness. The light of God .is not intimidated by darkness. It will go to darkness and shine. The of the light is that it cannot be over powered by darkness. The term used by John is under stood. He is not saying that the darkness misunderstood the light. The point conveyed here is that the dark ness of the world could not overtake or overpower the light of the world. God in His infinite wisdom provided the world with an introduction to the Light that was to come. Thus entered John the Baptist (vs. 6). John came not to be the light, but to be a wit ness to the light (vs. The church must understand that its purpose is to be a witness for Christ. Having the light of God in you; your mission is to help people see Christ or God. Just as it would have been outside of John's purpose to make everyone see himself, it is out of God's purpose for your life for you to make people focus on you. You do not want people to come see you; you want people to see God through you. Your task is to be a witness for Him. In other words, let the world know that there is still hope! John records that the true light was coming to give light to every man (vs. 9). This establishes that every person who lives in darkness has a chance to live in the light. Jesus d.id not come for just a select group, He came for everybody. / Although He came for everybody, everybo .dy did not recognize Him (vs; 11). The people worshipped Him and pra,ised His name, but when He came they did not recognize Him. How many people do you know that do not recognize the presence of the Word in their life? Those who recognize Him and receive Him are extend ed the right to be called the children of God (vs. 12). It is important for people to recogriize and believe Jesus, because a life changing event will take place. This life in the flesh is diffi<;ult, but receiving the Light of the World can make a major d.ifference.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor A conversation about senior citizens and information available to them sparked an idea for an East Tampa church The idea was to col lect information and then make it accessible to senior citizens. The "First Annual Seniors -Awareness Day" will be sponsored by the 34th Street Church Of God, Rev. Dr. Thomas Scott, Senior Pas tor, and the Guiding Light Ministry, Sister Ora Chester, President. It will take place on Saturday, March wth, at the Church, 3000 North 34th Street. It wilr be held in the Cleora Hunter Fellowship Hall. Dr. Jeffery Johnson, Youth Minister at 34th Street Church Of God, and a group of church members began planning ways to get the in formation to their targeted audience They decided a Senior Awareness Day was the best method to reach the senior members of the community . Citizens who are at least 55 years of age will have an opportunity to attend the event between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. "We realized that sen iors are the group who go unnoticed and are left to fend for themselves," Dr. Johnson said.
