About 400 people gathered Wednesday night in deep center field at Tropicana Field to discuss how they'd redevelop the ballpark property,
once a new, open-air Downtown stadium is built on the Al Lang Field site.


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG To find out what the public
would really prefer to do with the Tropicana Field prop-
erty, St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay Rays officials rolled
out the artificial turf.
About 400 people clustered in small groups in center
field at the stadium Wednesday night to discuss their ideas
for redeveloping the 86-acre property, funneling their in-
put to facilitators. The sale and redevelopment of the
Tropicana property are critical to the development of a new
Downtown open-air, waterfront ballpark, planned for the
site of Al Lang Field.
City Council President James Bennett warmed up the
audience by calling the meeting the first step in an infor-
mation-gathering process. He added that everyone's job is
to gather as much information as possible to reach con-
sensus.

Palm Harbor incorporation goes to Tallahassee


Pinellas News Staff Report
ST. PETERSBURG Legis-
lation to allow Palm Harbor res-
idents to decide on incorporation
is moving closer to a March vote
in Tallahassee.
The only threat it faces: A


House study that might deter-
mine if residents would pay
more in taxes as a result of be-
coming a town. The bill is before
the House Urban and Local Af-
fairs Committee for review.
State Sen. Mike Fasano, R-
New Port Richey, the bill's Senate


sponsor, said if higher taxes are in
the cards, "I definitely won't push
the bill in the Senate."
In the House, the bill is spon-
sored by Rep. Peter Nehr, R-Tar-
pon Springs.

Pinellas News Staff Report
Now that Iowa, New Hamp-
shire and Wyoming made their
presidential preferences known,
three more states will pick before
it's our turn Jan. 29.
Michigan, Nevada and South
Carolina will choose, and the
votes of Michigan's Democrats,
like Florida's, won't count for
picking the president.
They will, however, matter to
Pinellas County and local races.
Five municipalities in the county
have elections and ballot referen-
dums, and the county school
board has a tax proposal on the
ballot. A statewide property-tax
revision is also on the ballot.
Clearwater
Mayor Frank Hibbard, 40,
seeks his second three-year term.
He faces former Mayor Rita Gar-
vey, 62, who held the office from
1987-98.
Six referendums are on the
ballot, including provisions to al-
low the city to donate land for
workforce housing, grant ease-
ments for underground utilities
and change the length of city
council and mayoral terms to four
years from three.
Gulfport
Two council seats are up for

grabs. In Ward 1, Rick P. Gilbert
and Judy Ryerson seek an open
seat. Incumbent Robert E. Wor-
thington and Angela L. Leiner
seek to represent Ward 3.
Safety Harbor
Two city commission seats are
on the ballot. Incumbent commis-
sioner Nadine S. Nickeson and
Mark W. Taylor seek Seat 3, while
the open Seat 4 is sought by Nina
Bandoni and Robin L. Forino.
Redington Shores
While there are no candidates
on the ballot, voters will choose to
bring town election procedures in
line with state law including
election dates and procedures, vote
canvassing and terms of office.
South Pasadena
No candidates are running this
election, but several charter
amendments are offered. One pro-
posed amendment would require
a public hearing before city funds
are used to influence voters.

Correction
On page one of the Jan. 4 issue, the thermometer graphic pointed
not to the actual temperature, which was 34 degrees, but instead to the
"feels like" temperature. We regret the error.

Keep kids safe



on the 'Net


Simple steps, attorney general says,

go a long way to protecting children online

Noting that new computers are popular holiday gifts for children, Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum recently issued a consumer advisory offering cybersafety measures and guidelines for
parents to use when setting up computers or other new technology in their homes.
McCollum reminded Floridians that there are simple steps to be taken that can help protect children
from internet child predators and other dangers lurking online.
"It is important for parents to be aware of simple, proactive steps they can take to keep their children
safe while online, and the best time to start practicing cybersafety is the very first time a computer is used,"
he said.


WHAT PARENTS CAN DO


* Place the computer in a common area
within the home.
* Install parental control software which
allows parents to control who communicates
with the children using the computer;
prohibits children from visiting inappropriate
sites; and allows for the creation of time
limits on computer usage.
* Teach your children why it is dangerous to
give out personal information, including their
full name, address, phone number,
school name, practice


By the numbers

57

in Florida since October 2005,
according to state Attorney
General Bill McCollum


schedules and where they spend time after
school, to people they "meet" online.
* Have frequent conversations with your
children about what they are doing while
online and check the computer's internet
history regularly.
* Have open and honest discussions about
dangers that exist online.

Of those arrests, the number
who believe they were talking

to travel to meet the child

Number of cybercrime arrests
across Florida in the past
four months


* If your child has an account on a social
networking site, encourage him or her to add
the Attorney General as a "friend" so the
CyberCrime Unit's badge will appear on his or
her site.
More tips
For more tips on safe internet surfing,
parents, students and educators are
encouraged to log on to the Attorney
General's cybersafety website, for valuable
information about staying safe while online.

Experts: Cybercrimes affect real child victims


Crime show host joins attorney
general to discuss child Web safety


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum and
"America's Most Wanted" host
John Walsh hosted a discussion
Tuesday with members of McCol-
lum's cybercrime unit to discuss
the importance of the cybercrime
and cybersafety initiatives and
their impact on child victims.
"The startling number of chil-
dren who are victimized through
cybercrimes is evidence enough
for why a heavy-handed approach
toward internet child predators is
so important," McCollum said.
"Every single child who can be
saved from the devastating impact
of cybercrime is one more child
who will not have to live with the
scars of that victimization for the
rest of his or her life."
Information on the cybercrime
unit's investigations was provided
by Chuck McMullen, chief of law


enforcement for the attorney gen-
eral's cybercrime unit. McMullen
described instances where cyber-
crime investigators have identified
or rescued child victims in danger
of being further victimized as a
result of investigations into pos-
session of child pornography.
Florida ranks No. 4 in the nation
for the volume of child pornogra-
phy and the National Center for
Missing and Exploited Children,
co-founded by Walsh, reports that
more than 1,200 children have
been identified nationwide as child
pornography victims since 2002.
"Attorney General McCollum's
cybercrime unit is a model for the
Nation," Walsh said, "and the cy-
bersafety initiative is imperative
because knowledge is power. I ap-
plaud his proactive approach to
protect Florida and the country's
greatest resource our children."

general's cybersafety
presentations, and tips on

safesurf



Walsh added that McCollum's
office is ni.diiin a loud message
to predators everywhere that
Florida will do everything neces-
sary to protect kids."
The Attorney General's cyber-
crime investigators also regularly
conduct undercover investigations
online where they are approached
by internet child predators who
believe they are soliciting children
- or the parents of those children -
for sex.
The conversation also focused
on the number of students who
have received the CyberSafety pre-


sentations and the number who
subsequently revealed victimiza-
tion to an advocate or educator.
Launched at the beginning of this
school year, the CyberSafety pro-
gram combines real-life stories
and examples to help students
identify the ways they could be
victimized online and is designed
to empower children to use the in-
ternet safely.
During the presentations, the
students receive information about
internet dangers as well as tactics
used by online child predators.
They also learn what constitutes a
cybercrime and how to report it.
An open line of communication
between the students and the vic-
tim advocates is strongly encour-
aged to give the opportunity for
private disclosure of any offenses.
The Attorney General's victim
advocates also offer counseling to
any child who discloses victim-
ization and can refer any reported
offenses to law enforcement for
investigation.

See yourself

in our pages

with your

own news

f you're sitting in the Bob
Evans at Park Boulevard and
U.S. 19, we know you're
reading this. Or at least that you
bought the paper from the rack
out front.
First off, thanks for drop-
ping a quarter on us. Secondly,
thanks for reading.
Now comes the best part -
you can send us your news, and
we'll print it. Novel concept,
huh?
A good newspaper puts a
community in dialogue with it-
self. And since that's what we
want to be a good newspaper,
that is we want to involve you.
If your club or organization
is up to something good, we
want to spread the news. Send us
your photos, too. Hey, if you're
growing a 200-pound tomato in
your backyard, send us a photo.
You could be a Rotarian, a 4-
Her, a Lion or a scout. Doesn't
matter.
So e-mail your news to
news@pinellas-news.com or
send it the old-fashioned way to
us at Community News, The
Pinellas News, 533 4th St. N., St.
Petersburg, FL 33701.
If you wonder why I'm
making this overture, it's proba-
bly because I helped deliver the
paper to boxes across part of
Pinellas County last week. That's
something I've never done, nor
ever had to do, since at every
other newspaper at which I
worked, as they say, "we have
people." We do, too, but I helped
substitute last week.
So on Thursday night, I
stuffed newspapers in boxes in
Clearwater, Clearwater Beach,
Safety Harbor and Pinellas Park.
I saw where one quarter picked
up 10 copies (the only purple
box we have we see you!), and
where people were honest (thank
you, Bob Evans customers!).
Filling newspaper boxes
helped give me some perspective
on just what this newspaper
should do and should be. It
should be YOUR paper, with
YOUR voice. It should cover
Pinellas County and do it well,
or at least as well as 25 cents can
give you.
We know we'll never be
your newspaper of first choice,
but we can supplement it. Let
them give you the daily blow-by-
blow. We'll give you what's go-
ing on, a week at a time, so you
don't miss too much.
Last week, I noticed we ran
a "where to find the Pinellas
News" box in the paper, which
I'm sure we also have today. If
you think we should be some-
where we aren't, please let us
know. Give us a call or e-mail us.
We want to be the little
newspaper you want to see your
neighbors in, catch up on what
they're saying and respond.
While we don't have the deep re-
sources of that big paper down
the street from us, we want you
to love us because we're in the
heart of your community, with
your words and pictures.


In other news...
With chagrin, I watched the
New Hampshire primary vote
this week.
To think America might sub-
ject itself to at least four more


years of one of two families con-
trolling the White House is stom-
ach-turning, never mind the fact
America's Own Evita is the one
running.
Coupled with Sen. John Mc-
Cain's Republican win, though,
there's hope. McCain can't win
the nomination, because he's
drawn the ire of conservatives.

are registered Democrats will
count not for the presidential
primary, but for other items on
the ballot which may impact
your life.
No. 1 on the ballot is the
statewide constitutional revision
regarding property taxes.
This amendment, though it
is deep in legal mumbo-jumbo,
has its moments of clarity and
offers some hard numbers. It will
take some time to decipher if
you wait to read it on the flat
screen when you go to vote. You
should take a moment, get a
copy of the ballot from the Su-
pervisor of Elections and read
the fine print carefully. After all,
it's your money.
For those of us who have
lived here for more than five
years, we are in the eye of what
I have called "the perfect
storm" for real estate financial
disaster.
We have already experi-
enced the front of the storm,
and after this brief lull, the back
side may be even more exciting.
For those who need a refresher,
read on; otherwise, skip the ex-
planation.
The perfect storm consists
of three elements to make up
your monthly mortgage pay-
ment, and the falling market
value of your home.
First, the interest on your
home mortgage, which has risen
for both those purchasing new
homes and those who have ad-
justable-rate mortgages.
Second, the escrow,
which consists of property taxes
and your homeowners' insurance
- the latter of which has sky-
rocketed thanks to Florida's in-
surance disaster. Cancelled poli-
cies and faltering insurance
companies caused homeowners
to be thrown to the more expen-
sive insurer of last resort, Citi-
zens Property Insurance Corp. If
you're not with Citizens, your
carrier's rates have skyrocketed
faster than anything NASA could
launch.
The last element is prop-
erty tax hikes at the cap rate
every year. If you did not have a
homestead exemption, and there-
fore had no assessment cap, your
property taxes were also practi-
cally in orbit and above the as-
sessment of the property based
on the IiiI.hci and best use," not
the current use.
For example, if you had a
beachfront coffee shop, you
could and most often were as-
sessed as if your property was a
high-rise condo. The tax assessor
has to only imagine the building.
The actual viability of such a
building falling into the sea
didn't matter.
The result is that people are
leaving Florida, their houses are
not selling, cities are crying poor
because the Florida legislature
forced municipalities to cut their
budgets, and schools are being
closed. Three Pinellas County
schools will be closed soon, and


one's on the bubble.
So, enter the Legislature
with a change to the property
tax. Muncipalities and school
boards will be faced with more
tough choices. For those of us
who pay these taxes, the relief
may not be enough. Looking at
the numbers expressed, it may
help a little.

Vehicle registrations change


Car tags will have 6-year cycle,

two-year registration available


CLEARWATER A pair of
laws in the New Year will affect
license plates and registrations
in Florida.
"Starting Jan. 1, newly issued
license plates will have a six-year
life cycle before they have to be
replaced instead of the old five-
year cycle," says Pinellas County
Tax Collector Diane Nelson,
"and motorists will have the op-
tion of purchasing a one- or two-
year registration."


Because the life span of a li-
cense plate has increased an ad-
ditional year, state law recalcu-
lated the $2-per-year
replacement fee up from the old
$10 to $12 which will cover this
extra year. Motorists with birth-
days in January and after, whose
plates are being replaced, will
see this additional $2 fee pre-
printed on the state registration
renewal notice.
The Department of Highway


Safety & Motor Vehicles
(DHSMV) will not begin to pre-
print the choice of an annual
(one-year) or biennial (two-year)
registration and show the price
for both options until the Febru-
ary renewals. Customers with
birthdays in January can start
asking for the two-year option.
There is no change to the fee for
the two-year option; it is simply
double the annual fee.
A part of the legislative intent
was to improve customer service
by reducing the frequency of vis-
its customers need to make to the
tax collector's office, and to ben-


efit Floridians who maintain a
residence while on extended travel
away from home, such as military
families and college students.
This can mean a lot in a county
like Pinellas that renews nearly 1
million registrations annually.
The customer service trend in
Pinellas has been to give cus-
tomers more options for conven-
ient self-service without making
a personal trip to an office. Mail
turnaround times have shortened
to next-day-service, and conven-
ient drop boxes have been placed
outside all nine Tax Collector of-
fices countywide. This gives cus-


tomers around-the-clock service
that is postage free on their end,
coupled with the elimination of
mail fees from the Pinellas Tax
Collector.
"Some counties followed the
DHSMV lead and raised their re-
turn mail fees when the U.S.
Postal Service raised theirs, but
in Pinellas, our drop boxes are
still the best, cost-free option for
customers," says Pinellas Chief
Deputy Charles Thomas.

license plates and registrations,

Residents give city, Rays ideas


BALLPARK I From Page 1

"We're going to have as many
meetings as it takes," Bennett
said, "to have it open to the pub-
lic."
He reminded the gathering
that the city has taken no stance
on the ballpark development and
Tropicana redevelopment.
The city's selection of a de-
veloper for Tropicana Field, Ben-
nett said, will be open to public
scrutiny.
"This process will be open
and we will be very careful, as
your representatives, as we go
along," he said.
City leaders met secretly for
the better part of 2007 with the
Rays to develop the two-site pro-
posal.
With maps, flip charts and
markers at the ready, the small
groups discussed what they want
to see on the Tropicana property.
They then addressed three topics:
Land uses for the develop-
ment, whether residential, retail,
entertainment, cultural or park
land;
Urban design characteristics
that would create a sense of
place, such as the height of build-
ings, pedestrian features and
open spaces; and
Other considerations, such as
"green" development, affordable
housing, transportation issues
and pedestrian trails.
The groups' answers were
pooled and tabulated afterward
- and the No. 1 desire was to
make the land residential prop-
erty.


A look along Booker Creek in this Tampa Bay Rays rendering shows retail space on the former Tropicana Field property.


Group member Brian
Longstreth, a real estate agent,
said parking would be an issue
for the new ballpark, as well as
filling in a swath of Tampa Bay
to build the stadium.
"I think their plan is a pretty
good plan," he said, "but it's far
from done."
He said the meeting was a
good idea for making the pro-
posed redevelopment fit in with
surrounding neighborhoods.
But Joe Vulgamore, who was
in a different group, believed the
city "has the cart before the
horse."

Schedule of public meetings about Tropicana Field
redevelopment, as well as renderings of the proposed new
Downtown ballpark: www.majorleaguedowntown.com


He asked if a new stadium is
really needed, and if citizens
want a new stadium, and said
Tropicana Field suits him, "until
I see significant money put up
by the Rays up front."
He said the new stadium and
Tropicana redevelopment are
"not a done deal," but that voters


- who will decide in November
whether to move ahead with the
tandem plan may be lulled into
thinking there's nothing they can
say about it.
Outside the Tropicana ro-
tunda, three people carried signs
in protest of the stadium plans.
Joan Martin, a 25-year St. Pe-


Courtesy Tampa Bay Rays


tersburg resident, wore a sign
around her neck that said, "Save
the Dome," and carried a similar
sign during the meeting. She
moved to different tables at one
point to evangelize the crowd.
"I don't want to see the dome
torn down," Martin said. "A thou-
sand times, no."
"We spent all this taxpayer
money on it," she added. "They
fixed it up for baseball. And it's
not good enough now?"
Mayor Rick Baker and city
and Rays officials say this is the
first of many civic meetings to
get input on the stadium plan.

Circuit Court Judge Michael
F. Andrews, of Florida's Sixth
Judicial Circuit, has been named
the recipient of the 2008 Distin-
guished Judicial Service Award.
The award, which honors
outstanding and sustained serv-
ice to the public especially as it
relates to support of pro bono
legal services, will be presented
by Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis
at a Jan. 31 ceremony at the
Florida Supreme Court.
Andrews was appointed to
the bench in Pinellas County in
1997. At the time he was the
youngest judge in Florida. In
May 2003 he was appointed to
the circuit court where he pre-
sides over family law cases in
Clearwater.
Andrews is recognized as an
exemplary role model for the
youth of Florida, especially
those in the greater Tampa Bay
area. He has for many years con-
tributed his time, talents and per-
sonal passions for the continued
self-improvement and education
of Florida's youth with Judicial
Youth Forums, a program pre-
sented in partnership with the
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.
The Judicial Youth Forums
are designed to acquaint under-
privileged youth with Florida's
judicial system. Topics of dis-
cussion include personal re-


sponsibility, what is takes to be
a good citizen and i.r.) ii out
of the courthouse." Speakers
tell stories of how they dealt
with peer pressure, and of how
they, too, face prejudices, but
how they have tried to make
good choices to have better
lives.
Andrews has continually en-
listed the assistance of members
of the judiciary to participate in
the youth forums and has him-
self contributed more than 1,000
hours of his time to the program.
He has also enlisted the assis-
tance of the Pinellas County
Sheriff's Office, the St. Peters-
burg Police Dept., the Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriff's Office,
the Tampa Police Dept., the
Florida Highway Patrol and the
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion.
Andrews has been a Pinellas
County School volunteer since
1992, a volunteer for the 500
Role Models of Excellence Proj-
ect since 1995, and a volunteer
for the Alpha Institute and Men
of Tomorrow Program.
Born and raised in Home-
stead, Andrews received a bach-
elor's degree in political science
and then attended Florida State
University College of Law, earn-
ing his Juris Doctorate degree
in 1991.

Bill survives


if it doesn't


raise taxes

TOWN I From Page 1


Nehr agrees that he will only support
the bill if it doesn't increase taxes. He has
said he didn't have an opinion on the leg-
islation, other than that residents should
decide on their own governance.
The bill was passed unanimously by
the Pinellas County Legislative Delega-
tion in December. It would give residents
of Palm Harbor, Crystal Beach, Ozona and
East Lake the chance to vote on whether to
incorporate as one municipality.




Incorporation,

the coalition says, is the

response to not getting

back tax money Palm

Harbor residents pay

for municipal services.




The Greater Palm Harbor Community
Coalition, a group of civic organizations
and community services, presented a pro-
posed city charter in mid-November. The
coalition says that while the county will re-
ceive about $16 million on behalf of the
unincorporated area's population from
state taxes, the county intends to only al-
locate $3 million of that money for mu-
nicipal services for those residents.
That money provides services to the
unincorporated areas that, like city gov-
ernment services, are over and above those
services provided countywide by Pinellas
County.
"The accumulated effect of having such
a huge portion of one of the major revenue
sources diverted," the coalition says in a
statement, "is having a detrimental impact
on basic public safety and quality of life in
the unincorporated area."
The $16 million comes from the state's
Local Government Half-Cent Sales Tax
Program.
Unlike other unincorporated areas of
the county, Palm Harbor is protected from
annexation by a special act of the state
legislature. About 280,000 people live in
unincorporated Pinellas County, which in-
cludes Bay Pines, East Lake, Feather
Sound, Gandy, Harbor Bluffs, Palm Har-
bor, Ridgecrest, South Highpoint, Tierra
Verde and Lealman.





Democrats'


primary


votes not


for delegates


ELECTION I From Page 1
Another repeals term limits for the
mayor and city commission. Two others
require charter review committee mem-
bers to be registered voters in the city, and
for the committee to vote in person on
charter modifications.

Presidential primary

Florida Democrats will conduct their
primary, though the votes won't send del-
egates to decide on the next president this
summer at the Democratic National Con-
vention.
The DNC moved to deny Florida dele-
gates their seats because the state moved
its primary to the Jan. 29 date.
Republicans also disciplined the state,
but only by denying half the delegates.
N Republican candidates on the ballot:
Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giu-
liani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huck-
abee, U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter of Cali-
fornia, Ambassador Alan Keyes, U.S. Sen.
John McCain of Arizona, U.S. Rep. Ron
Paul of Texas, former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney, former U.S. Sen. Fred
Thompson of Tennessee and U.S. Rep


Tom Tancredo. Tancredo, from Colorado,
has dropped out of the race.
N Democrat candidates on the ballot:
U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, U.S.
Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, U.S.
Sen. Christopher Dodd of Rhode Island,
former U.S. Sen. John Edwards of North
Carolina, Mike Gravel, U.S. Rep. Dennis
Kucinich of Ohio, U.S. Sen. Barack
Obama of Illinois and New Mexico Gov.
Bill Richardson.

GOP has something

to turn out for Jan. 29


NEWS I From Page 3

Former First Lady Hillary
Clinton, who c'.,ii pib.i_.._..cd her
way to New York's junior seat
in the Senate, can't win either,
because she's too polarizing a
figure. That, plus she's trying
to rewrite history to say she
played big parts in world
events while her husband was
president. Come on who is
she really fooling? (Appar-
ently, her supporters.)
Sen. Barack Obama is an
empty vessel, not too much un-
like John Edwards was four
years ago a first-term senator
with very little record, but per-


sonifying the hopes of an elec-
torate looking for a candidate
who truly speaks for them. He
lacks experience, and that
alone makes him vulnerable.
As for the GOP's candi-
dates, I wish I could take the
good qualities from each candi-
date and make one candidate of
them. Each one has drawbacks.
Fortunately, it's still too
early, and Iowa and New
Hampshire don't exactly typify
what the rest of the nation
thinks. Thank God for that!

Better read the ballot

before you decide


ELECT I From Page 4

The amendment does offer
to those who have a homestead
exemption relief in the form of
a doubled basic exemption to
$50,000 from $25,000, al-
though the sample ballot says
"$50,000 to $75,000." How
one gets more than $ 50,000
has not been explained.
For those looking to move
within the state, the "portabil-
ity" has a cap of $500,000.
OK, $500,000 of what? That
needs to be explained some-
how. Let's say you move out of
your current house, which
when you bought was assessed
at $400,000. You move into a
house of identical size and the
new house is assessed at
$600,000. What will your
property taxes be under the
new and old rates?
For commercial proper-
ties, instead of your property


value rising uncontrollably,
there would be a 10 percent
cap. So even if your coffee
shop property is assessed as a
high-rise condo, your property
assessed rate value will take 7
years to double which is bet-
ter than no cap at all.
There are other local is-
sues you should look at before
voting. The only one that re-
ally should not be there is
South Pasadena's amendment
to end term limits for the
mayor and council. Elected
municipal positions should
never become lifetime appoint-
ments. Too often there have
been too many abuses of
power and office.
So go get educated and
vote.
