Hearing Set For Dual Election law svstem Last year, Elections laws for the majority of Florida residents changed. However, resi dents in the 5 counties covered by the Voting Rights Act are challenging the state's dual election systems. Last year, Republican Governor Rick Scott signed a law that changed voting rules. Two sections of the 20n law being chal lenged: the number of days allowed for Early Voting; and the section that requires that will force voters who change out of the county ad. dresses on Election Day to cast provisional ballots. Democratic State Senator Arthenia Local Joyner, theACLU and the National Council ofla Raza challenged the new law stating that the state violated rule-making requirements b y telling Supervisors of Elections in 62 coun ties to follow the new law. The other five counties, including Hillsborough County, are covered under the Voting Rights Act and must have approval from the Justice Department. Under the Voting Rights Act, the Depart ment of Justice has approved 77 other areas of the new law. Administrative Law Judge Thomas Crapps will hear the argument and issue a ruling on August 24th.

East TIIDPI Post ODice Dedication Cere10onv Held c )> c: G') c: KATHY CASTOR U.S. Congresswoman BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several months ago, Patrick Donahue, Post master General for the U. S. Postal Service, announced the possible closures of more than 3,700 post offices. The Produce Station on East Hillsborough Avenue was on that list, but an outcry from the community successfully lobbied to keep it open. U S. Rep. Kathy Castor was among those working to protect the Post Office. After it was saved from closure, Rep. Castor submitted a bill to have the facility renamed in honor of the late Reverend Abraham Brown, a popular East Tampa resident. The U. S. House passed the bill in June, and the U. S. Senate passed earlier this month. Last Friday, Presi dent Barack Obama signed the bill into law. On Monday afternoon, Rep. Castor, family members of Rev. Brown, and other members of the community gathered for the dedication ceremony. V.EIIIJ an 111111 n 2112 EIICIIIIIIJ ... 14,2112 REV. ABRAHAM BROWN A Tampa native, Rev.

LL. Says Owens, "We want to make this very clear .. We C are not Democrat or Republican. This is not the plat :i form of any political party. It is our conscience. We will vote for what is right and what is scriptural." Then 0 he says, "We're asking Black America to step up to the en plate and do the same." "Say what?" tWhat could such stepping up to the plate by Black America accomplish? One doesn't have long to wait for an answer to Reverend Owens, Sr.'s challenge. It w came from his own son. C Says Reverend Owens, Jr., such a response by Black American voters would, no doubt, benefit Conserva en tive candidates. This is what we know. President Barack Obama de ::l serves to be re-elected. In order for his successful re election, he must have support of Black American i= voters. However, what we don't want to do, as Black voters, is to remove ourselves from a fight that we ..J could have won if we had only stayed in the ring. ::l m ..J w z i= z w en Min Ro01nev, Show Us Your Monev To put it politely, we are astounded. that more voters have not seen fit to challenge Mitt Romney's re-fusal to release his income tax returns. After all, Romney is only the Republican Party's candidate for the most important job in the world. Certainly, Romney didn't learn such reluctance from his father who released 12 years of his tax returns when he ran for President, years ago. So, where does such bad behavior come from? Could it be that Romney's false "Obama-sends-American-jobs-overseas" chickens are about to come home to roost when voters see the real culprit is Mitt? Furthermore, how might voters react when they find how many millions of dollars Romney currently has stashed in Swiss banks? And how could anyone forget the windfall Mitt received from his investment in Bain Capital, a company known for outsourcing American jobs overseas? Does anyone really care? Is Romney's reluctance to show his underwear the real issue, or has America's ego suddenly had second thoughts about electing an African American native son? : We say, there's only one way to balance the books g and restore America's confidence: MR.

Black Women Love Jesus Over the years, I've met a lot of good men who've strugg led with their religious identity at one point or another. Most lik e myself, were ra is ed in Christian households Th ey were drug kicking and screaming, to school on Sundays. On Easter, the y were dressed up in colorful suits to hear the s to ry of a Resurrec tion. Then afterwards, they were allowed to look for hidden treats left by a mysterious egg laying rabbit. And, more than likely, they also probably once played a role in an annual play commemorating the birth of the savior of mankind while anticipating the presents they would receive later from a fat guy in a red suit. It is no wonder why, as they grew older, many of these men C began to have inner conflicts fE with the teachings oftheir in C herited faith. For the ones who Z began to learn more about c( themselves the idea of follow ing a faith they believed was C forced upon their ancestors (fi during slavery to promote pas sivity, was too much to endure. For others it came down to being fed up with the numerW ous holes that they felt consti i:; tuted much of the Bible. Their c inability to find anyone who W could provide valid answers to their numerous questions :::::; drove them into different di m D.. z i= w ..J ..J ID rections. Their se arch for a greater understanding led a number of these individuals to turn to be liefs such as Islam, ancient African spirituality, Moorish Science The Nation of Islam, TheN ation of Gods and Earths irl and Rastafarism to fill their Z spiritual voids. While an equal !z number of these men, who w viewed all religions as folly for 0 the unenlightened, simply be came non-believers it Though they each chose a 0 different path the main prob lem they all encounter when it comes to finding a good woman to accompany them on their individual journeys is the unsettling fact that their pick ings are slim For every Erykah Badu type that they perceive to be open-minded, there are 400 Yolanda Adams types who have sold out mind, body, spirit and soul for Jesus Christ. Since the numbers aren't in their favor, some of these men have resorted to desperately trying to convince their Chris tian female counterparts to cross the divide. What they often realize too late is that, by comparison touching the sun would be easier. I discovered this by chance when I had the gall to suggest to my late-grandmother that CD the historical Jesus was, more w CJ than likely, of African descent. The look she gave me was all I needed to confirm that I had, in deed stepped on her freshly washed toes Apart from making my sta te ment seem blasphe m ous she made it clear that s h e felt that I'd lost my damn m ind. And it didn't matter what Revelations 1:14-15 said. I learned then that when i t comes to a die-hard Christian woman, particularly if she's Black and from the south, whatever you believe keep it to yourself. The bottom line is that she doesn t care. When it comes to her faith, she's going to believe what she was raised to believe She isn't the least bit inter ested in knowing why the sin gularity of God in Genesis 1:1 contradicts with the plurality written in the first sentence of Genesis 1:26. And you'll never get her to stop eating bacon or pork chops because she was taught that it's not what goes into a person 's mouth that defiles them, it's what comes out. Mentioning King James' sordid history as a closet ho mosexual who murdered his young lo v ers and victimized women won't even get her to blink. In fact, she ll tell y ou that it has nothing to do with the inspired word. And the idea that the Bibl e was written esoterically, with all of the sto ries being metaphors, will sound absolutely ridiculous, be ca use as far as she's con cerned, i t 's more than plausi ble that Jonah could have actually lived in the bell y of a whale for three days. If she's an Eastern Star who's absorbed a little light, you might get a receptive audi ence if you ask her to explain why she says the name of the ancient Egyptian god, Amen, at the end of her prayers? But if she's anything less, expect to be doused with holy water and hit across the head with a crucifix. In the book, The 48 Laws Of Power, the j8th law states that you should, think as you like, but behave as others." When it comes to Black women and their faith, I can t think of a better route to take. So if you're a man reading this who doesn't necessarily subscribe to the Christian faith, but you have your eyes set on a beautiful, cool sister who's a foot-stomping soldier for Jesus Christ, don t discour age her. When she tells you that she loves the Lord, just smile, look her in the eyes and simply say, "Hallelujith! What time are we leaving for church?"

1 Cameras Planned To Combatllleual Dumping BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last y ear Tampa taxpa y ers paid $81,000 to clean up hundreds of sites where illegal dumping took place. While dumping occurred throughout the city, it was more prevalent in certain Tampa neighbor hoods. In an effort to combat the ever-growing problem, the City of Tampa is introducing Solar powered cameras at some of the most notorious dumping lo cations. The cameras are mo tion-activated and designed to photograph license plates in total darkness Ms. Tonja Brickhouse, Director of Solid Waste & Envi ronmental Program Management said, Illegal dumping is an issue of public health and safety as well as cost. We are TONJA BRICKHOUSE City of Tampa Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management Director taking aggressive action to identify and hold violators ac countable. Individuals caught dumping waste can face criminal charges and pay the costs for disposal and cleaning up the dump site s he said. Last year Solid Waste Code Enforcement Officers identified 890 illegal dumping sites throughout the city with the highest concentration in North Tampa and East Tampa neigh borhoods. So far this year, nearly 200 tons of illegal dumping has already taken place. The cameras are part of the City's deterrence program to stop the illegal activity. Ms. Brickhouse is team ing up with the Tampa Police Department's Environmental Crimes Unit and the East Tampa Revitalization Partner ship to help combat the pro blem. Ms. Brickhouse said in addition to the cameras being solar-powered, they are also mobile and can be relocated to problem areas as they develop. NAACP Invites Supervisor Of Elections To General MembershiP Meeting The NAACP President Carolyn Hepburn Collins encourages all voters to vote. Due to the Voter Suppression laws and/or activities in Florida and many other states in the United States, there was no Souls To The Polls" voting for churches Sunday (August 12, 2012) in this year s Primary Elections in Florida. Bill HB 1355 is described as punitive, restrictive, disenfran chisement and an assaulted on every citizen s vote. This bill is a voter s greatest nightmare Collins stated, as a friendly reminder, Florida vot ers and despite the protective status of Hillsborough County v oters the voters are suffering with reduction of days to earl y vote less opportunities for third party organ i zations to ac t ively register voters inability t o change an address at the poll due to abrupt emergenc y re a s ons, a s well as the horror s of photo id e ntification. There are enough insults that the cit izen s are suffering The NAACP' s concern is to aggressively pursue efficiency, accuracy and equity for all vot ers (registered and felony un registered that shoulg be registered) with the Hillsbo rough County Supervisor of Elections Office throughout the process before, during and after ALL Elections. A Chief Justice described voting as ... The right that is preserved of all rights ... "The importance of doing it right is what the Hillsborough County NAACP is concerned about at all times Too many people died for this precious right that voters experience today. Do not take it lightly. DR. EARL LENNARD The Supervisor of Election is invited to the General Mem bership meeting to answer a plethora of questions from the citizens Although the Primary Election on August 14th will be over, the Thursday, August 16th NAACP Meeting will be held, the citizens want assur ance from Dr. Earl Lennard whom this community ha s wor ked succe ss full y with for y ears. Some of the community concerns Surfaced since Tuesday's Florida Sentinel story are: Democratic voter received sample ballot that wa s for a Republican voter. People that did not request absentee ballot were mailed a ballot. It is reported that the mail ballot was in the SOE office computer without the voter's signature on the Mail Ballot request. Early voting site was un able to accommodate ADA voter needs. Although the vot ing machine was present, it did not work. Numerous former felons with rights restored are com plaining that after many years of voting, notifications were re ceived informing the voters they are ineligible to vote in this Primary Election. The late notice of purging from the voter's role. The lack of voter's educa tion county-wide specifically in the African Americans com munity is evident. Many voters are complain ing they have not received their mail ballot yet, unaware of the requirement to re-apply every two years. The Political Action Chair Ms. Yvette Lewis and her committee is asking for effi ciency in the office and in tegrity. While the NAACP appreciates the SOE response to our letter submitted more than so days before the elec tion, the question is who runs the constitutional office, the SOE, the Chief of Staff or the Canvassing Board. As stated in the repl y letter to the NAACP, the Supervisor of Elections office will ab solutely conduct a free and fair election. It is the Canvassing Board, per section 102.141, Florida Statutes, that is re sponsible for oversight of the election, processing ballots, and tabulation of the results.

Businessman Wants To See Progress In West Tampa c l> c: C) c: C/) -1 ...I. N Q Businessman Marvin Knight said he' d like to see some things done in West Tampa. Knight owns a build ing adjacent to Voice of Free dom Park where the Occupy Tampa group has been camped out, as well as other properties in the area. I haven't had any direct contact with any member of that group," said Knight. I have received calls from people in the community com plaining about them being there, and how even the home less have taken up residence in the park." Knight said as a property owner, and based on the com plaints of the people, he doesn t think the community needs to wait until September 15th for the Occupy Tampa group to leave. I plan to address the pro blems now instead of giving them until the 15th of Septem ber, said Knight. I'd like to see this negative turn into a positive. I'd like to contribute whatever I can to help jumpstart the area." Knight said he's talked with some people in West Tampa who let him know why the Occupy Tampa group was in the park. He said he wants to see people abide by the rules, and keep the area clean. "I've talked with Joe Redner (who owns the land the park sits on), and with his in novative mind, I'm sure we could come up with a solution. I think the park could be better utilized by the business com munity, or as a place for com-MARVIN KNIGHT munity activities. "I want Main Street to be a part of the growth spurt in ...I.

Middleton Head Football Coach Wants Students To learn School's Historv G. S. Middleton Head Footb _all Coach, Alonzo Ashwood, said he grew up listen ing to stories about the history of Middleton High School, and H. W. Blake High School. I've met with Pastor Ron Ellis (Exalted World Ministries), who graduated from Tampa Bay Vo-Tech but considers himself a member of the Class of 1971, and we talked extensively about the pride students had during that era. We also talked about life, spirituality, and how to change the culture at Middle ton. "Few people know that from 1934 until1956, Middle ton was the only high school Blacks could attend. When Blake came along, we had two, but that was it Coach Ashwood said what's needed now is the com munity support that existed On behalf of B.A.M. and Exalted World Ministries, Pastor Ron Ellis Oeft) presents Middleton Head Football Coach, Alonzo Ashwood, with a check for $500 for the football team during the school's era of greatness, prior to 1971.

Pastor Ellis explained that an inadvertent result of the 1970-1971 Desegregation Plan was the separation of the students within the same com munity. "We lost the family iden tity. We also have to under stand that it will never be like it was then. Today we have kids living in the same com munity who don t know each other. "Through it all we made it though, and I'm proud to be in a position to help empower as many young people as I can." Pastor Ellis founded an organization called B.A.M. (Believe, Achieve, Maximize), and that made it possible for him to reach out to the players at Armwood during their first championship run. ""Today, I'm stretching out further to other schools. I'm going to start doing it at Mid dleton, and I'm committed to helping Coach Ashwood. Coach Ashwood said he hopes to get more former Tigers to join the Tiger Club and help bring back the pride and spirit. "I've been somewhat suc cessful in reaching out to a lot of the former Tigers from the 1970s and earlier It's impor tant for us to come together and so something great for the school, and help these kids get to college.

First Women's Boxing Medal Middleweight Claressa Shields defeated Russia's Nadezda Torlopova. American Claressa Shields, a 17-year-old with a megawatt smile, won gold in the 75-kilogram competition with a show of raw strength and aggression against her older Russian rival, Nadezda Torlopova, 33. It was a win for youth and speed over strength and experience Shields broke away from Torlopova in the second of four rounds by being faster on her feet. That approach frustrated Torlopova in the ring. By the third round, Shields had a five-point lead over Torlopova, and never looked back. Shields overwhelmed the Russian for a final score of 19-12. lSU'sDBOH Team For Violating Rules TYRANN MATHIEU Heisnian Tro ph y finalist Tyrann Mathieu was kicked off LSU s football team Friday for breaking an athletic department rule. The junior defensive back nicknamed Honey Badger for his tenacious style, small stature (5-foor-9, 175 pounds) and blonde streak of hair rose from obscurity to become one of college football's biggest stars last season He was a sleeper Reisman candidate as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game. But almost as quickly as Mathieu rose to fame and became the face of LSU football, the Honey Badger phenomenon ended in Death Valley. Athletic Director Joe Alleva said Mathieu, who was suspended for a game in 2011 after failing a drug test violated an athletic department rule and had his schol arship revoked.

Johnson Released Bv Dolphins Following Domestic Banerv Arrest As the Miami Dolphins took the field for practice Sunday, Chad Johnson was getting out of jail. Hours lat er, he was out of work. The Dolphins terminated the six-time Pro Bowl receiv e r 's contract abou t 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case invo lving his wife. Johnson was released from jail on $2,500 bond earlier Sunday after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. Johnson was charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor The confrontation came barely a month after Johnson married Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality 1V show "Basketball Wives. The 34-year-old Johnson had been battling for a spot on the team after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011. Following Sunday's prac tice, coach Joe Philbin said he would meet soon with Johnson. Only five days earlier, Philbin said Johnson's roster spot could be in jeop ardy if he didn t temper his freewheeling behavior. Johnson annoyed the coach by frequently using profanity during a session with reporters. Johnson who recently changed his name from CHAD JOHNSON Chad Ochocinco -was arrested Saturday after Lozada confronted him about a receipt she found for a box of condoms, police said. According to an arrest affi davit, Lozada said she was taking groceries into their home when she found the receipt in the car trunk. When the two were seated back in the car, they began talking about the receipt and their marriage. That's when Johnson got upset and head-butted his wife, the report said. Lozada ran to a neighbor's house and called police. A responding officer said Lozada had a 3-inch cut on her forehead, according to the affidavit, w,4ile Johnson did not have any visible marks or bruises. When questioned by police he confirmed there was an argument over the receipt, but said his wife had head butted him. Gabbv Douglas Honored With Mural In Hometown GABBY DOUGLAS VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -Gabby Douglas is really big in her hometown. Really big and painted on a wall. The gold-medal-winning gymnast has a giant mural painted in her honor in Virginia Beach. And she loves it. WOW!!! This is amazing!! so honored, Douglas tweeted Friday from the Olympics in London, where the 16-year-old won two gold medals at the Summer Games. The mural shows Douglas holding a gold medal with an Anierican flag backdrop. It says "Way to go Gabby." Brothers Todd and Eric Lindbergh spent four days painting the 9-by-30 foot mural on the outside wall of a sports bar. Todd Lindbergh says he found out that Douglas was from Virginia Beach, and the idea behind the mural came the moment he saw her on television at a medals ceremony.

Not only did he r ise before dawn to complete his third round, he never got untracked in the final round Woods played 11 holes to finish his third round and shot a 2 over-par 74, touring the back nine in 2 under 34. That left him tied for sixth at 2-urider 214, fi v e strokes behind leader Rory Mcllroy.

BucsShow Focus on Running Game It might be awhile before LeGarrette Blount or rookie Doug Martin is declared the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' starting tailback. Coach Greg Schiano doesn t see an y urgency on that front. Developing a running game is a top priority for the new head coach of a team that ran the ball fewer than 22 times per game last season, the least of any NFL team The Bucs traded into the first round to draft Martin, a quick and compact running back out of Boise State. That sent a message to Blount, who came to camp with his job on the line after losing five fumbles last season and experiencing a big dropoff from his 1 ,007 -yard perfor mance of 2010. Schiano sent a message in the spring about the kind of offense he intends to run first by draftin g Martin and t h en b y sign i n g All-Pro gu ard Carl Nicks to a f i ve yea r c o ntr a ct To the c o ach, e stab l i s hing th e gro und g ame is a hi g h e r prio rity than d ecidin g who will carry th e football.

Khaled owes his landlord over $50,000 in unpaid rent, and has yet to settle his debt, which means that an eviction is imminent. Khaled rented a Miami apartment from Misci LLC. The agreement was that he would make 2 payments of $66 ,ooo each. While he han dled the first transaction, he failed to cover the entire bal ance of the second, causing the landlord to file court doc uments to have him kicked out of the unit. The 36-year old worked out a new deal to break up the rent into 3 payments, and shelled over $n,ooo. He was scheduled to drop the remaining DJKHALED $55,000 a month later. Misci gave Khaled a 3day notice to vacate the property, of which he report' edly refused. The company is suing to have him removed, and is seeking payment to cover their legal fees in addition to Khaled's outstand ing rental debt.

ThinkProgres The Nation magazine and MSNBC s Rachel Maddow reported this week that Ohio s Republi can Secretary of State Jon Husted has intervened in county by-county voting rules to break ties in county boards of elections siding with Re publicans who want to limit voting in large urban centers like Cleveland which are heavily populated b y Democ rats to work hours, while county boards in Republican leaning areas voted to allow ex panded early voting hours that will make casting a ballot eas ier. Starting October tst, voters OJ in Democrat-leaning urban ? centers including Cleveland r Columbus Akron and Toledo will now only be allowed to z vote between 8 am and 5 pm 'tJ on weekdays, when the majority of people are at work. The r board of elections in these en counties, which are split evenly ifi between Democrats and ReC publicans, was gridlocked over !;2 a Democratic effort to expand m hours. The Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted -4 stepped in to deny expanded C hours in these counties.

A federal judge ruled this week that the state s requirement that Jestina Clayton get a cosmetology license to braid hair was unconstitu tional and invalid because regulations are irrelevant to Clayton's profession. Clayton, 30, sued l ast y ear after she f ound it would be ille gal to run a hair-braiding bus ines s without a license, i n part because of public and safety concerns. Clayton said she learned how to braid hair as a s-year-old in her West African home country of Sierra Leone, and she was doing it at her suburban Salt Lake City home to support her three children-ages 7 5 and 1 -while her husband finishes school. U.S District Judge David Sam in Salt Lake City said Utah's cosmetology licensing requirements are so discon nected from hai r -braiding "that to premise Jestina's right to earn a living by braid ing hair on that scheme is wholl y irrational and a violaC) tion o f her constitut ion ally m protected rights.
