We present initial results from our analysis and modeling of HST-STIS
medium resolution spectra obtained for a complete sample of 21 nearby
elliptical galaxies with radio jets. We obtained observations at three
parallel slit positions on each nucleus allowing us to map H\alpha,
[NII] and [SII] fluxes, the gas radial velocity, and the velocity
dispersion. These data will give us an insight into fueling,
ionization mechanisms, black hole masses and structure of the central
Support for this work was provided by NASA through grant number
HST-GO-08236.01-A from the Space Telescope Science Institute.
