Features :!! c connee Branuev Case: Prosecitor To Retrv Woman After Mistrial Declared Man Indicted On 11 Counts 01 Tax Fraud wonh 8104,616 c.. c: !< N 9 N C) .... N BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor James C. Preston, Jr., Prosecutor for the U. S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, announced on Thursday morning that he plans to retry Ms. Cortnee Brantley. Her first trial ended with a deadlocked jury on Wednesday. Prosecutor Preston said in a press release, "Pursuant to this Court's inquiry, fol lowing the declaration of a mistrial in this case, the United States informs the court of its intent to pursue its prosecution and to retry the defendant at such time as the court deems appropri ate." The trial of Ms. Brantley, 24, who is linked to the deaths of two Tampa Police officers began on Monday. She was charged because she did not tell police that her passenger was a convicted felon in possession of a firearm during a traffic stop. The case was given to the jury for deliberation Tuesday evening. Attorney Grady Irvin, her court appointed counsel, did not call any wit nesses. A motion to dismiss the case was submitted last month. However, S. District Judge James Moody, Jr., denied the request. On Wednesday afternoon, jurors notified Judge Moody that they were dead locked and unable to reach a verdict. Ms. Brantley was arrest ed two years ago on a federal charged of concealing information from law enforcement after her companion, Dontae Morris, 26, allegedly shot and killed Tampa Police Officer David Curtis, 31, and Officer Jeff Kocab, also 31, two years ago. During the early morning hours of June 29, 2010, Officer Curtis stopped Ms. Brantley's vehicle because the license plate was not visi ble. Officer Kocab was his backup unit. Ms. Brantley pulled over to the side of the road on N. soth Street and E. 23rd Avenue. Morris was a passenger in the vehicle. Morris is alleged to have shot both officers in the head as they attempted to arrest him on an active warrant for worth less checks. Attorney Irvin had suc cessfully had the charge dis-CORTNEE BRANTLEY .Jury could not agree if she was guilty of charge missed last year. However, federal prosecutors won an appeal. Last month, Attorney Irvin stated in a brief submitted to the court, "Discovery materials in the murder prosecution(s) of Dontae Morris were released to members of the media. Included with released material was a 38page transcript of Quinisha McMillian, who is appar ently an occasional Morris paramour. ... McMillan witnessed Morris in possession of a firearm and ammunition on no less than two separate occasions. The first occasion occurred shortly after McMillan saw Morris near a dead body in her apartment complex. While the second occasion occurred shortly after Morris admit ted to McMillan that he had killed the person." Attorney Irvin further said Ms. Brantley is the target of "emotional and selective prosecution while there is a lack of prosecution of Ms. McMillan "who pos sibly could have saved the lives of those officers and two others after she witnessed the. first victim, Derek Anderson, laying on the ground dead in the apartment compl ex where she lived." He further stated that in addition to knowing that Morris had recently been released from prison, Ms. McMillan watched him remove spent cartridge shells from his handgun and reload it with fresh bullets. Attorney Irvin also requested an Evidentiary Hearing based on the newly released information. Judge Moody had not issued a response to either request at press time. Derek Anderson, 21, was killed on May 18th while at the Kenneth Court Apartment Complex on East A'ITORNEY GRADY IRVIN, JR. Earlier this week, the fed eral government indicted a 46-year-old Tampa man on seventeen counts of filing false tax returns. The false returns totaled $704,676. Koffi M. Gbikpi was arrested on Tuesday. According to the indictment, he prepared and filecl. the tax returns in the names of several individuals between February and Novemher of 2009.

On May 31st, 41-year-old Rodney Jones was shot and killed as he left a West Tampa nightclub. Harold Wright, 25, was shot and If convicted on all of the charges, Gbikpi faces five a maximum of 85 years in prison. 6 killed on June sth, in Palm River. Ms. Brantley was arrest ed July 3, 2010, on an active warrant the day after Morris surrendered to police, ending a massive nationwide manhunt.

I.L Countv Commissioners Ask For Ordinance Against Sale 11 svnthetic Mariiuana Ms. Antoinette Glover wishes all communities were drug free, especially the area of Wimauma where she lives. Ms. Glover understands how difficult it is for law enforcement to combat illegal drugs but when she went into a convenience store in her neighborhood, she discovered a new and more dangerous problem. I went into the store with my grandson, and right up front in a huge display was an assortment of synthetic drug products and pipes to smoke them with I immediately became upset that these stores were allowed to openly display these products, and intentionally draw the attention of young people to use them. Almost immediately, Ms. Glover began a campaign to get the products out of stores in the county. She started a petition in her neighborhood that everyone signed, and presented it to the Board of County Commissioners. "I pleaded with them to take some kind of action to get these products out of stores," said Ms. Glover. "It was obvious to me that they were targeting teenagers because of the way they dis playing the products, and where they had them in their stores. County Commissioner Les Miller took the lead in looking into the synthetic products, and discovered other counties were having similar problems. He also dis covered that some of those areas had drawn up an ordinance to prohibit the sale of the products. "After my office re searched the dangers of these products, I thought banning the sale of these products in Hillsborough County would be the best way of protecting COMMISSIONER LESMILLER .. requests ordinance to ban sale of synthetic drugs. our children. Commissioner Miller also met with City Council man Frank Reddick, who was also looking into the sale of the products in the city. According to sources, since the sale 6f the synthetic products in the Tampa Bay area, there have been two reported deaths, and a rise in emergency room visits of young people between 14 and 20 years old. It was also reported that the products are actually plants and/ or herbs that have been sprayed with chemicals that will mimic the effects of smoking marijuana. A law enforcement official said the difficulty in getting the products removed is the manufacturers are constantly changing the chemical makeup whenever some of the chemicals they use are put on the banned list by state of ficials. On March 26, 2012, the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office sent out letters to busi ness requesting they stop sell ing the products due to the health hazard they repre sented. On Wednesday, Comm. Miller made a motion that an ordinance be drafted by the County Attorney to prohibit the sale of these prodANfOINETrE GWVER ucts in Hillsborough County. His motion was seconded, and his colleagues voted unanimously to get the process started on the draft ing of the ordinance ; Governor Rick Scott approved House Bill1175 that expanded the list of banned hallucinogetic substances, adding 91 new synthetic chemicals One problem raised was the fact that law enforcement has no rapid testing kits, and the chemicals used in the products are constantly changing. When Ms. Glover got the news of the proposed ordi nance, she shouted for joy. "First, I want to say, God is good. "I think everyone who put forth the effort to get this done understood this is for the children. I promised I wouldn't stop until something was done to get those prod ucts out of the stores." Ms. Glover said now she'd like to see the parapher nalia removed from the stores, because in her opin ion, the pipes they sell are only used for ingesting drugs. "The store owners who allow the sale of these prod ucts don't care about us," said Ms. Glover. "Their bottom line is mak ing money, and that's all they care about." Councilman Reddick said he's already requested the City Attorney draft a sim ilar qrdinance and after talk ing with his colleagues, he expects it to go through with--: out any problems. "Comm. Miller, the City Attorney, and myself met with all of the people who ad dressed the Board of Com missioners about the problem, so we feel we are moving forward with getting the problem taken care of."

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter During the public comment section at the June 2012 Board of Trustees meeting for Hillsborough Community College Ms. Michelle Williams expressed con cerns about security at Hawks Landing, the school's 420-bed residence complex located to the west of the school's Dale Mabry campus. Ms. Williams alleged that there have been several calls for service at the com plex, and the company currently in charge of security at the complex has done nothing to change that. HCC President, Dr. Ken Atwater, said he recalls Ms. Williams speaking to the board a year earlier about Sable One Security and their decision to reassign them from Hawks Landing to provide coverage for the book stores during the rush period prior to the start of a semester. Ms. Williams alleges that EMS had been called to the complex 26 times between June 23, 2011 and May 22, 2012. She also said during that period, someOne had to be treated for a drug overdose. "I think Sable One's contract was violated. Since that company was removed from providing security at Hawks Landing, there have been sev eral incidents." Dr. Atwater said there have been incidents at the complex, but they are going down. "No one will operate a 420-bed complex without problems," said Dr. Atwater. "We believe we are providing a safe environment and there' s always room for im provement. According to Dr. Atwater, a Request for Proposals was issued in the spring of 2010, with Allegiance Security selected to provide district wide security, and Sable One to provide security for Hawks Landing beginning July 1 2010 Although Sable One s contract was not terminated, after one year staff determined the complex would be better served by using Iron Eagle, a sub-contractor to Allegiance Secur ity, beg i nning July 1, 2011. We are very pleased with their perform ance during their first year at the complex." Dr. Atwater also said they had a contract option with Sable One and at the end of every year, they assessed their service and decided to make a change. Sable One continues to provide security at the school's book stores. In a letter from the Board of Trustees dated July 12, 2012, it states that college staff followed up with the Tampa Police Department and obtained their list of calls placed from Hawks Landing, including all apartments. The list included dates from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2012 The TPD report the college received during Sable One's tenure was 4 pages with 190 calls/incidents and 3.5 pages long with 155 calls/incidents for the current contractor over the past year. The letter also says the total number of calls to police declined 18% in the most re cent year, compared to the prior year when Sable One provided service.

Politics, Percentages, And vampires With serious tongue-in-cheek, former president and founding father, Thomas Jefferson was once overheard to say, "I only believe what I read in the newspaper." Ha! Fast forward through a bevy of wars, near wars, civil disorders, disasters of every conceivable dimension and political fiascos that would feed a farm, and finally arrive in the 21st century, on a Saturday July 14, 2012. You have just awakened, put on your slippers, slogged outside through wet grass, plucked up the paper only to be informed {when your eyes finally focus) that 46 percent of Florida voters prefer President Barack Obama, however, 45 percent prefer Mitt Romney. What?? You scratch your head. The last time you remember, TV comedian David Letterman was making yet, another remark regarding Mitt Romney's most recent goofs and gaffs; American women had decided almost to a woman, that a vote for Romney was by no means a vote for women's liberation, and in Texas, a group called the NAACP now knew why most of its members would not be wearing "I LOVE MITT" tattoos on their ankles. Yet, we woke up, opened a window, and inflew-Romney. Once again, busy little bees, who believed the people to be sheep, were making up our minds. For, if we believe that a man who was booed by the NAACP, who has bad credibility with American Latin Hispanics, who trucks no favor with the majority of women voters, who seems not to have an agenda for physically challenged voters at all except death, and whose only relationship with senior citizens is what one might call "Old-Money," then we might as well also believe in vampires since one wild fiction is as good as another wild fiction. But if indeed, there are vampires, they don't drink blood; they distort words. James Ammons: Not A Good Month For Education Here recently, the Florida School system received its FCAT report card. The result was a bevy ofF's and D's. The University of South Florida succumbed to a series of hoots and jeers about its students seeming to fall through a black hole never to graduate. And then, as if a progressive possible murder case were not bad enough, the president of venerable Florida A& M Uni versity announces that he, too, will follow a long list of F AMU presidents to step down. Indeed, one might be tempted to ask, "So, what next can happen?" But perhaps, asking such a question might bring down even more bad luck, especially on FAMU. There was no way to put a smile on "I QUIT." No explanation could conceal the feeling of being beaten up beyond endurance. So, James Ammons-the kind of man you would feel most comfortable calling "Jimmy" -simply decided he'd better get while the getting was Now that it has come out that several high ranking offi cials at Penn State University, including the President, the Athletic Director and de ceased coaching icon, Joe Paterno, were aware of sev eral victims who were sexu ally abused by convicted child molester, Jerry Sandusky, more than a decade before his actions became public record, people are expressing shock and outrage that none of these men made an effort to stop him. While their disgust is warranted, the thing that surprises me the most is that everyone else is so surprised. What I am about to say will no doubt be taken as politically incorrect, controver sial and incendiary, but, the truth of the matter is the worse kept secret in Ameri can society. And that is that whenever possible, white people in positions of power will do whatever they can to prevent other white people, who they feel are social equals, from going to prison. Sure, there are a number of whites who are behind bars. But most of them either come from a caste commonly referred to as "white trash," exhausted a multitude of previous breaks or committed crimes so high profile, that a slap on the wrist was never a viable option (i.e. the Bernie Madoffs of the world). Sandusky fit neatly into that latter category. He was one of the fellas --a golfing buddy or maybe even a lodge brother. It didn't matter that he got his rocks off messing with children or was involved in any other perversion. The men around him considered him one of their own. If that meant covering his messy tracks, so be it. And if I could be so bold as to speak what is probably in the back of the minds of most people who've followed this story, Sandusky's supe riors may not have come for ward because they may have been also trying to keep the door locked to their own skeleton closets. Who really knows? I mean, how else would you explain a so-year-old man getting caught sodomiz ing a 12-year-old boy in a shower and not going directly to jail? In the words of street disciples all over, "where they do that at?" Not to make Sandusky's case entirely about culture and race, but I don't think it's a stretch to say that had Sandusky been Black, Asian or Hispanic, there may have been far less victims. Simply because, at the first sign of any sexual indiscretion with a child, he would have been thoroughly investigated, con victed and had his perp walk broadcast over national tele vision. Maybe if this were the first example of something like this happening, I would be somewhat amazed that it took 0 .... N ., so long for Sandusky's dirt 6 to come to the light. But con::u sidering that his is just the E latest instance where a white guy got away with committing moral atrocities while authoritative individuals looked i the other way (hello Catholic m church), it appears that cases like Sandusky's will con-c: tinue to stand as more of a J= rule than an exception. g) z Anyone wanting to eon tact Clarence Barr can ., reach him at: Clarence C: CD Barr, II, 43110-018; P. 0. rBox 7007; Marianna, FL en ::J: 32447-7007.

Holmes, Ph.D. Prostate cancer is the sec ond leading cause of cancer death among U.S. men. We are wondering: Is there a problem with routine prostate screen ing? Why is the U.S. Preventa tive Services Task Force's draft recommendations against rou tine prostate screening? Recently, the U.S. Preven tative Services Task Force (USPSTF) reported that rou tine prostate screening pro vides little or no benefit in reducing deaths resulting from prostate cancer. It gave PSA screening a grade "D" and rec ommended that men without symptoms should not rou tinely have the PSA blood test. Many medical experts and groups oppose the USPSTF recommendations. Dr. Peter Schlegel, chairman of urology at New YorkPresbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City, disagreed with the USPSTF's recommendations. Schlegel noted the task force should have used better stud ies that showed substantial benefits from PSA screening and given a higher grade in order for doctors to discuss the risks and benefits with their patients Schlegel also noted that the recommendations are inappropriately disadvantaged to African-American men since they face twice the risk for prostate cancer. With the task force mainly concerned about the side ef-fects due to the over-treatment ,.. z c of prostate cancer, doctors James K. Bennett, Jenelle ., Foote and Paul Alphonse of Midtown Urology in Atlanta position that "it is not the diag nosis of the disease that has led to these side effects, but the over-treatment of the dis ease which should be the basis of our discussion." The debate regarding the value of prostate cancer screenings will undoubtedly continue. In the meantime, it is critical that men educate themselves about prostate health and work collabora tively with their doctors to take steps to maintain a healthy life style and get the necessary physical exams to detect health issues. good. But the problem remained, at F AMU; the getting was not so good. Its golden goose (the Marching One Hundred) was dead, or was at least in temporary suspended animation. Though its finances were a bit better, they leaked red ink around the ledgers; students were still struggling, and seemingly FAMU was losing in an on-going battle for survival between it and its white counterparts. With black smoke billowing from this titanic, Captain Ammons signaled" Abandon Ship" at least for himself. There's an oil slick on the water. Has the great ship outlived its usefulness? Without C> a captain, what is to become of FAMU? Without clarity, what is to become of Florida m State Education?

Page Six Pres. Obama's Campaign Sues Over Ohio Earlv Voting law. PRES. BARACK OBAMA COLUMBUS, Ohio President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is suing Ohio's top elec tions official in a dispute over a state law that restricts early, in-person voting during the three days before Election Day. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Columbus follows a series of election law changes cleared by the state's Repu b 1 i can -con tro 11 ed Legislature and signed by its Republican governor, John Kasich. Pres. Obama's campaign and Democrats argue that the law unfairly ends early, inperson voting for most Ohioans on the Friday evening before the election, but gives military personnel and overseas voters until Monday to cast ballots. Before the changes, local election boards could decide whether to allow in-person voting during those final three days. In 2008, about 30 percent of Ohio's total vote came in before Election Day.

"I was honored to meet with President Obama today and felt the meeting was substantive," Springer said Monday.

Obama just put his arm around his wife as the game resumed. That cautious reac tion brought some boos. Pres. Obama got a do-PRES. BARACKAND MICHELLE OBAMA over later in the game when the Kiss Cam swung back his way. This time he delivered, giving Mrs. Obama a big kiss on the lips And a peck on the forehead for good measure. And the crowd roared. Pres. Obama Winning Bv Campaigning like A Republican President Barack Obama speaks about the economy during a campaign event July 16, 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio. When the Obama campaign released its new ad "Firms" over the weekend, the hard-hitting ad was so good it might have even made Republican political operative Rove nod in respect. The ad, which features Mitt Romney singing America the Beautiful," is slickly produced and cut with images of empty factories and notes about Romney's ties to Bain Capital, a pioneer of out sourcing, and island beaches to highlight Romney's offshore bank accounts in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. Romney's singing is painfully bad, and the closing message in the 30-second ad is "Mitt Romney is not the solution. He's the problem." The Obama campaign has gone for the jugular directly attacking Mitt Romney's central argument for why he s hould be president and is showing no signs of letting up. For the past week, Romney's campaign has been taking hits from all sides. Romney's SEC filings con tradict his public statements and testimony under oath about his tenure as CEO of Bain Capital, Romney leaked a transparently untrue s tory to The Drudge Report about Condoleezza Rice being on the top of his list for vice pres ident and was forced to oo a Friday evening media blitz in the hopes of putting a stop to the bleeding.

But, they can't stop me, if they take my life, they can't stop me." Ms. Scott said no one was injured and no arrests made. "I'm not giving up. This lets me know I'm doing it for the right reason God is good and this violence has to stop. Fami lies are hurting. I pray that God will be with the family of the boy who killed my child be cause they have lost him, too. The only difference is, they can go see him, but I can t go see my child, Ms. Scott said. She further said the event CRAIG A. THOMPSON 3/5/1989 to 7/29/2011 was an experience and she has learned a lot. She didn t know she needed permits, but was able to get them. Ms. Scott also said that her pastor said she can still ac complish her goal, she just has to do things differently. The church will partner with her next year.

I had hired a DJ and he brought me the money back. He said an anonymous donor had paid him. Ms. Scott said she will not be stopped by the incident Every day I think of something to add to my agenda to get the message of non-violence out to these children. They can t stop me."

N She, along with her sister, Margaret, were typical teenagers, and both of their lives could have turned out the way some of their peers did. But, Ms. Arenas knew her life had to be different, espe cially after she found herself alone raising six children. "Of my six children, five of them are boys, so my focus as a parent was strong. I saw how the other young men they grew up with were turning out, and I just couldn't see my children going through that. Facunda Arenas (wearing the #28 jersey) and her six children.

Ms. Arenas is proud of all of her children, especially her son, Javier. After a successful football career at Robinson High School, Javier went on to be a star at Alabama, where they captured a National Champi onship. After completing his senior year, he was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2010 draft Ms. Arenas said Javier was a very funny kid growing up and helped her out a lot at her day care business. "I remember being in the hospital with him when he was 5 or 6 and hearing the doctors say he was a special kid. "All of my children got along great with each other. All of the boys were athletes and challenged each other to stay in top shape. They loved to fish together and just generally hangout." Javier said that his journey wouldn't have been suc cessful without the values instilled in him by his mother. "Being where I am now, I'm just living for the moment. I enjoyed high school football, and to this date, I've managed to keep the fun in the game. "I worked out more than others, liecause I just enjoy it. to be with suc cessful programs along the way, and I've had great coaches." Javier said he occasionally works out with his older brother, Armondo, and when it comes to life after football, he'll lean on his degree in Pub lic Relations.

Center Couple Finds love In Assisted living Facilitv: Exchange Vows BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor A couple that has made their home in an Ybor City facility, became husband and wife last month in a ceremony at the facility. Maddie and Edward (Eddie) Huffman exchanged their vows before the staff at Ybor City Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center on June 15, 2012. "We finally found one another," stated the new Mrs. Huffman. A native of Sarasota Mr. Huffman may be remembered as a member of the nationally known group, Soul Stirrers.

H e has traveled the world over MR. AND MRS. EDDIE (MADDIE) HUFFMAN and met all kinds of people. He says his faith and trust in God led him to meet Maddie. When he first saw her, he thought to himself, "wow, look at this angel." He says he fell in love when h e first saw her, and then told her he needed to talk with her. That was the beginning of their friendship. Maddie, the youngest of 5, is a nati ve of Troy, Alabama. She was 40 years old when she came to Florida with her children looking for better job opportunitie s She wanted to be a good role model for her children.

A second vehicle, driven by Jonathan Forbes, 21, was traveling north on the same road. Troopers said during Shakes' left tum, he traveled into the path of Forbe's vehi cle resulting in Shakes' vehicle being hit on the pas senger side. Both vehicles came to rest on the comer of the intersec tion. Shakes received fatal injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Forbes was reported to be in serious condition. Nicholas's mother, Yvonne Shakes, said she disputes some accounts of the accident, and wants to launch her own investigation. "The way the accident was reported doesn't make sense to me. Also, when we spoke to the officer, we were told Forbes refused to give a breath sample. I didn t know you could refuse. Nicholas Shakes was born in Jamaica, and came along with his family to the United States when he was 7. He graduated from Durant H igh School. Mrs. Shakes said although he was a pre-med graduate from the University of South Florida he decided to work in the family's construction business with his dad, Leaford Shakes. He had gotten hi s gene ral contracting license last year," said Mrs. Shakes. Mrs. Shakes said she know s there were witnesses to the accident, and she needs answers about what hap-pened. Nicholas Shakes had 3 siblings, Vincent, LaVonne, and Lauryn Shakes. FHP spokesperson, Sgt. Steve Gaskins, said in inci dents where a driver refuses to take a breath test, the cir cumstances can vary. "It's really case specific, and the officer has to also have probable cause to request a breath test. "It would be premature at this point to make any determination, and I'd advise everyone to just be patient until the investigation has been completed. The case has been turned over to the State Attorney' s Office, and the investigation could take as much as 4 months to complete. A bene lit for the kickoff of our organization "Love U2 Life."

Workshop To Be Held On Bidding For Countv Contracts During Wednesday's Board of County Commissioners meeting, several people protested the process used for the bidding of contracts. Hillsborough County has a minority quota that must be met when bidding on a con tract, and the company with the lowest bid may not neces sarily meet the minority quota. Commissioner Les Miller said that is a problem and they will be conducting a workshop on the 25th to dis cuss the flaws in the contract ingsystem. "The Good Faith guide lines have to be looked at. We re either going with the 2096 minority goal, or just the low bidder. "We have to learn to do both. We need to draft a new policy." "We're going to be looking at the entire procurement pol icy and try to rectify any flaws we find. The bottom line is it's going to have to change, because the way it's being imple mented now isn't fair to the low bidder or the person meeting the minority quota." Reporter Leon B.

Harlem Opera Singer 1st Black To Top 1.1. Classical Chans Noah Stewart grew up in Harlem dreaming of the day he would take center stage at Carnegie Hall in his hometown of New York and The Royal Opera House in London. And while most of his musi cally-inclined childhood friends emulated Beyonce and D'Angelo, Stewart looked up to the legendary Black-American soprano, Leontyne Price. His album titled "Noah," topped the UK classical charts the first for an Black artist! And yes, he did make it back to Carnegie Hall, in 2009, to perform Mozart's "Requiem" with conductor John Rutter. Stewart, whose album in cludes operatic versions of Nights in White Satin" and Leonard Cohen's "HalleluNOAH STEWART jah," in addition to more tradi tional operatic pieces, believes his UK success is at least partl y due to his being "a nontradi tional opera singer people can relate to," and hopes that this leads to success in his home country as well. He's currently appearing as Radames in "Aida" at the Glimmerglass Festival in Coop erstown, NY, through Aug. 25.

"We must worship a dif ferent God," Martin's fa ther, Tracy Martin, said. "There is no way that my God wanted Zimmerman to murder my teenage son." Speaking Thursday on NBC's 'Today" show, the teen's mother, Sybrina Ful ton, said the notion was "ridiculous." In the Fox News inter view, Zimmerman also said he'd like to talk with Trayvon Martin's. parents about what happened. Absolutely not," Fulton said when asked on NBC if she'd be willing to meet with Zimmerman. The Fox News interview was Zimmerman's first television interview and was conducted at an undisclosed location in Seminole County, Fla. where Zimmerman must remain under condi tions of his release on bail. Zimmerman claims Martin attacked him and has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense under Florida s stand your ground" law. Zimmerman is free on $1 million bail. In his interview, Zim merman said he would like to tell Martin's parents he was sorry about the teen's death. "I can't imagine what it must feel like. And I pray for them daily," Zimmerman said. Later, he added: "I am sorry that this happened." But Fulton said it is hard for her to accept his apology because he still says he does not regret anything he did on the night of the shooting. When asked in the Fox News interview to explain what he meant when he told a police dispatcher he was following Martin, Zim merman said he was trying to keep an eye on Martin to tell police. He said he was not following Martin but at tempting to get a more pre cise address for the authorities. Whether Zimmerman was the aggressor plays a major role i n his self-defense claim.

"After the meeting, the decision to go ahead with the petition to have them moved out of the park didn't change.

Carver Citv/Lincoln Gardens Residents Not Happv With Cigar Citv Brewerv meetings. site of the old Green Iguana Crews .can be reached at N DR. MAURICE HARVEY Carver City /Lincoln Gar dens Civic Association Presi dent, Dr. Maurice Harvey, said their battle with the Cigar City Brewery is ongoing, even after the Tampa City Council gave their approval for the busi ness. The brewery is on Spruce Street, just west of Dale Mabry Highway. In 2011, residents of Carver City /Lincoln Gardens came before the Council to ask they not allow Joe Redner to operate a business that sells alcohol in their community. "We came in a big group, but the Council went Redner's way, and he got every thing he wanted," said Dr. Harvey. "He opened the brewery, has expanded it, and all of the problems we complained about that he insured would n't be a problem, have been a problem." Dr. Harvey said the biggest problem is inade quate parking for the patrons that frequent the brewery. "We just completed a hearing with the city over the parking for the brewery, and with the exception of Councilmen Charlie Miranda and Frank Reddick, we came out on the short end. "The hours the brewery operates has expanded, and during an event in March, he had more than 5,000 people attend, although he only has 66 parking spaces. When I brought this to the attention of the city's zoning depart ment, I was told they have to witness it for themselves be fore any action could be taken." Dr. Harvey said Red-ner put on his event as a special event to avoid some of the rules he had agreed to with approval to operate the brewery. "He actually closed off the 66 spaces he had, and leased space close by. He even had overflow parking at Home Depot. Dr. Harvey describes Redner as a very intelligent man and a "smooth opera tor." "He knows how to do things to his advantage with out violating the rules," said Dr. Harvey. "We're happy that the Green Iguana and ABC Liquor Stores are gone, but the problems we anticipated with the traffic is still going on." Dr. Harvey said he and the residents are happy that Mayor Bob Buckhorn has attended some of their meet ings. He also said the city has asked for a transportation study of the Spruce Street corridor. "Also, the Department of Transportation has stopped their work on the interstate area that runs through our neighborhood, and that will afford us more time to do what we need to do." Councilman Reddick said when the request was made two weeks ago to expand the brewery, he voted no. "I voted no because I felt allowing them to expand the facility in a residential area was disrespectful to the resi dents, and would cause seri ous parking issues. rmvery disappointed residents from the area didn't come before Council on the problem. "I'm also disappointed my colleagues (with the ex ception of Charlie Miranda) didn't take into heart the concerns of the residents in Carver City and Lincoln Gardens." Councilman Reddick said a plan is underway to improve the major roadways in that area, and residents were pleased when he made that announcement during one of their community "They were also happy to and that would create job op-(813) 248-0724, or e-hear that a Volkswagen dealportunities." mailed at lcrews@jlsenership will be opening on the Reporter Leon B. tinel.com.

God If Restoration Over the course of time things wear out or get old and need to be restored. In a case such as this, the owner will find someone who spe cializes in restorations. There are people who have learned how to specialize in restoring physical or mate rial things. However, there are things in your life that man cannot restore To restore also means to give back or return something to a person. This week's lesson recorded in 2 Kings 8:1-6 tells the story of a woman who had to be restored. She had to have something re stored by the power that was in the king of the land. The message is deeper than this for you today. The message to you and the body of Christ is to know that God is a restorer and He specializes in restoration. The story opens by identi fying the woman of the story as the lady whose son was restored to life ; she was told to take her household and leave that city because there was going to be a seven-year famine (vs. 1). This verse alone is encouragement to a person who is about to enter a season offamine! Famine is a season when there is a shortage of neces sary resources in daily life. There are many people living in a famine today. The famine they are experiencing may not be about food, but could be suffering from an emotional, mental, or spiri tual famine. In this verse and in your life rejoicing can take place because God gave warning of what is to come ST.

Ministry: OOAHCOMMUNITY,II'C./ I-OJSE OF LYDIA The encouragement that is stated in the text is in identifying the woman. The woman whose son was re stored! This is important in formation because it identifies her as a woman who already knows that God is a restorer. As she goes in this season of discomfort her belief is in God that no matter what she goes through, He is able to restore her. The message for you as you go through a season of famine is, look back over your life and see when some thing was taken from you or you lost it, but God restored it for you. If God restored your broken heart, then be lieve He can bless you on the other side of the job famine. God is not like man that He can only restore one thing; He can restore all things. Restoration is about tim ing, not your want. Consider the events presented in the text. The woman has been gone for seven years. Upon her return she was on her way to talk to the king.

EDWARD AIKENS Business Owner Creates Opponunities For Others BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter For nearly 30 years it has been the mission of Hopeton Virgo to be more than just a business owner. To be a successful business owner, I believe you have to make a difference in the lives of the people you serve, said Mr. Virgo. "Sometimes that means sacrificing a little of yourself to make sure others have an opportunity. That's how you create more Black-owned businesses and jobs. Mr. Virgo is one of three African American business owners in East Tampa to take advantage of the City of Tampa' s Facade Improvement Program. He is having his array of businesses on 34th Street and Lake Avenue completely redone. I hope other Black busi ness owners in the area will see what I'm trying to do, and get involved to improve their places," said Mr. Virgo. "You will be surprised how much new business you will attract if your business facadeisinrproved. But Mr. Virgo has also created an opportunity for young people in the area. I've allowed a group of young men to operate a car wash on my property. I've also allowed them to use the outdoor grill I built to earn HOPETON VIRGO money. The only thing I've asked from them in return is to keep the area clean and be accountable for what they d o. Mr. Virgo said he doesn t have a completion date on when his project will be finished, and he's still very much hands-on when it comes t_o the contracting for the project. "When you're dealing with funds, it's best to keep things close as possible to alleviate any waste. ''I'm on a mission to spread the word about the Program and tell the others this is great for the community and this will show the rest of the city we care about where we live and the people we serve. DACCO To Host Candidates Forum When it comes to budget cuts, the State of Florida usu ally looks in areas of services DACCO, a substance abuse agency, is beginning to feel the results of budget cuts as they are in dire need of fund ing for vitally needed mental health and substance abuse services On Thursday August 2nd at 7:30 a. m. DACCO will be hosting a Candidate Forum at their facility, 4422 East Columbus Drive. According to a published report, the budget cuts would potentially eliminate state support for the Northside Mental Health Center, 12512 Bruce B. Downs Boulevard Senator Joe Negron, who is in charge of the sen ate's health care budget, said he would rather make these cuts than reduce spending on programs for disabled people, senior citizens and children. DACCO CEO, Mary Lynn Ulrey, said with behavioral health and related substance use disorders clearly identi fied as among the most costl y health programs, funding for vitally needed behaviora l health services will be the focus of the forum. For every dollar spent on effective school-based prevention programs, $18 i s saved by the community through enhanced productivity and a reduction in medical costs," said Ulrey. Please join us as we welcome candidates for State Representative and senatorial seats to present their platform regarding funding The forum is open to the public and will be moderated by Jan Gorrie, an' l!ttorney with Ballard Partners." DACCO was founded in 1973, and is one of the state's largest community-based providers of behavioral health services.

Without getting into the crazy details of obe sogens, think of them as harmful chemical compounds which disrupt our hormonal balance and nega tively affect the way we store fat.

Summer's Biggest Skin Hazards Don't let these hazards sabotage your summer skin Heat Rash Heat rash looks like small pimples and is usually found on body areas covered by clothing. Most common in children, but it may also af fect adults in hot, humid cli mates. To alleviate symptoms, apply cold compresses or take a cool bath. Air dry and avoid lotions. If baby's skin is irritable to the touch, ask your doctor about using or hy drocortisone cream. Bee Stings Most reactions to bee stings are mild, causing minor swelling, pain, and itching. Severe allergic reactions occur in some people, with symptoms including hives, swelling of the mouth or throat, and difficulty breath ing. If you have a severe re action, lie down and remove the stinger. Give yourself an epinephrine injection, if you have access to one, and get immediate medical Care. If you don't have an aller gic reaction, remove the stinger, clean the sting site, apply ice, and take an oral antihistamine for itching. A delay in removing the stinger increases the amount of venom you receive. Chiggers Chiggers are tiny mites found in tall grass or weeds. Their bites are painless. But after a few days of being at tached to the skin, chiggers fall off leaving very itchy red welts. Over-the-counter products can help relieve the itch, but see a doctor if your skin appears infected or the welts seem to be spreading.

The two women, who were cousins, were on their way from Texas to visit family members. They were accom panied by Shun's 18-year-old son, Lamarcus Loc k ett, who remained in the vehicle and was unharmed. The pair was struck by a truck that had been towing a full cargo of horses in a trailer. Upon striking the women, the truck reportedly stopped about a half mile down the road. There were two people in the truck, Tristan Martin, 16, and 37-year-old Michel M artin of Sulphur, La. When police questioned both parties, Michel told them he had been driving the truck. After further questioning, investiga tors discovered Miche l had lied and that the youth had ac tually been the one operating the rig when it struck the two women. Both Mic hel and the teen sustained no injuries. One woman died at the scene and the other was air l ifted to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Tristan was charged with two counts of leaving the scene after an accident involv ing a death, felony, and tw o misdemeanor counts of care less driving involving death.

Britain's largest Black Newspaper Barred From Olvmpic Stadium LONDON Black Britons have expressed outrage that Britain s longest serving and biggest Black newspaper, The Voice, has been denied accred itation to the Olympic Sta dium.

The paper' s managing director George Ruddock said he was extremely disap pointed The Voice will not be inside the stadium," despite the high number of Black British athletes on the national team. The 2012 Olympics is taking place in East London's multi cultural community and one of the key themes behind Lon don s Olympic bid was cele brating the diversity of London and the UK. However, when The Voice app l ied for accredi tation they received this reply.

The British O lympics Asso ciation (BOA) said it only had space for 400 journalists and told The Voice it would go on a waiting list. "We've known about the decision for a while, but with the Olympics just days away we can only assume ., r-0 :!:! we've been sideline d," says C Hinds. Hinds says the decision was taken by the b oar d o f the Z Brit i s h O lympics Association ::::! and "to his knowledge there are no Black people on that r board. He says it's important for The Voice to get access ber cause the stadium is the main 1 venue for track and field.
