Deputies conduct boat safety operation off John's Pass


Pinellas News Staff Report
ST. PETERSBURG A re-
cent boating-safety awareness
operation by Pinellas County
sheriff's deputies was intended
to promote safety and minimize


the potential for boating acci-
dents.
"The combination of warmer
temperatures and longer days as-
sociated with daylight savings
time means more people will be
taking their boats out of winter


storage and venturing onto local
waterways," Sheriff's Marine En-
forcement Unit Sgt. Dwayne
Somers said.
The operation last weekend
focused on preventing accidents,
specifically during peak boating


hours and after dark, he said,
adding that deputies were look-
ing for impaired boaters or any-
one operating a vessel reck-
lessly.
Deputies focused on water-
ways in and around Madeira


Beach, to include John's Pass.
The operation began at about 2
p.m. Sunday and continued until
about 9 p.m., when dense sea fog
moved into the area.

pointed by Gov. Charlie Crist to
head the state juvenile justice de-
partment.
Three candidates will run for
the Democrat nomination, to face

IN FOCUS





Easter lore




and traditions



Easter Sunday is the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which was three
days after His crucifixion, believed to be in 33 A.D. Here's a look at some traditions and
some lesser-known facts about the holiday.

By AMBER R. JIOVANI I Pinellas News

EASTER AND THE EASTER SEASON


Easter refers to the season of the
church year called Eastertide, or the
Easter Season.
Traditionally the Easter season lasted
for the 40 days from Easter until
Ascension Day, but now officially lasts
for the 50 days until Pentecost.
Easter always falls between March 22
and April 25 following the cycle of the
moon.


END OF LENT: Easter marks the end of
the forty days of Lent, a period of
fasting and penitence in preparation for
Easter which begins on Ash Wednesday.
WEEK BEFORE EASTER: Palm Sunday,
Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy
Saturday mark Jesus' entry in
Jerusalem, the Last Supper and the
Crucifixion.


EASTER TRADITIONS


ENGLISH-SPEAKING NATIONS:
Decorating Easter eggs on Saturday
evening and hunting for them Sunday
morning, by which time they have been
mysteriously hidden all over the house
and garden.
Chocolate eggs have mostly replaced
decorated eggs in Australia.
In North America, eggs and other treats
are delivered and hidden by the Easter
Bunny in an Easter basket which
children find waiting for them when
they wake up.
Many families in America will attend
Sunday Mass or services in the
morning and then participate in a feast
or party in the afternoon.
In the U.K., children still paint colored
eggs, but most British people simply
exchange chocolate eggs on the
Sunday.
Also in the U.K., many families have a
traditional Sunday roast, particularly
roast lamb, and eat foods like Simnel
cake, a fruit cake with eleven marzipan
balls representing the eleven faithful
apostles.
In the north of England and the north of
Ireland, the tradition of rolling
decorated eggs down steep hills is still
practiced.
OLDER TRADITIONS: Hot cross buns
were among the earliest Easter treats,
made by European monks and given to
the poor during Lent. Pretzels were
originally associated with Easter. The
twists of a pretzel were thought to
resemble arms crossed in prayer.
NORWAY: In addition to painting eggs
and cross-country skiing, a


contemporary Norwegian tradition is to
solve murder mysteries at Easter. All
the major television channels show
crime and detective stories magazines
print stories where the readers can try
to figure out who did it. Even the milk
cartons change to have murder stories
on their sides.
FINLAND, SWEDEN AND DENMARK:
Traditions include egg painting and
small children dressed as witches
collecting candy door-to-door, in
exchange for decorated pussy willows.
Brightly colored feathers and little
decorations are also attached to birch
branches in a vase. For lunch/dinner on
Holy Saturday, families traditionally
have a smorgasbord of herring, salmon,
potatoes, eggs and other kinds of food.
NETHERLANDS AND NORTHERN
GERMANY: Easter Fires are lit on
Easter Day at sunset.
CZECH REPUBLIC, SLOVAKIA: Tradition
of spanking or whipping is carried out
on Easter Monday. In the morning, men
throw water at women and spank them
with a special handmade whip called
pomlAzka (in Czech) or korba (in
Slovak). The spanking normally is not
painful or intended to cause suffering. A
legend says that women should be
spanked in order to keep their health
and beauty during whole next year.
In some regions the women can get
revenge in the afternoon or the
following day when they can pour a
bucket of cold water on any man.
HUNGARY: The holiday is called
Ducking Monday, and perfume or
perfumed water is often sprinkled in
exchange for an Easter egg.


WHY THE EGG?
* Eggs are a symbol of the new life that
returns to nature at Easter.
* The custom of exchanging eggs began
with the Egyptians and the Persians
before Easter was celebrated. They
exchanged eggs decorated in spring
colors. They believed Earth hatched from
an egg.
* Early Christians used red colored eggs
to symbolize the Resurrection.
* In England they began writing
messages and dates on their eggs and
exchanging them with friends and loved
ones.
* Rabbits symbolized new life and
rebirth in ancient Egypt.
* The Easter Bunny's visit is based upon
a German legend. The legend goes that a
poor woman decorated eggs for her
children to find during a famine. At the
moment they found them, they looked up
to see a big bunny hopping away.


EASTER CANDY
* Candy is a relatively recent Easter
tradition. Chocolate eggs, the most
popular Easter candy, were first made in
Europe in the early 1800s.
* Ninety million chocolate Easter
bunnies are produced each year.
* Each Easter season, Americans buy
more than 700 million Marshmallow
Peeps.

Accolades

for failure?

If you're a

ballgirl, yes

How would you like to be
applauded every time
you stand up?
You're probably thinking
that doing something great, or
saying something that calls peo-
ple to action, or something else
lofty would be worthy of that
kind of esteem.
Think again. All you have to
do if you're a ballgirl at Bright
House Networks Field is stand
up. That's it.
Why? They're Hooters girls.
They sit in foul territory for
Philadelphia Phillies spring
training games, gloves in hand,
ready to snag foul balls to throw
into the crowd.
That is, if they catch them.
On Tuesday, the Rays vis-
ited the ballpark to play the
Phillies, and sure enough, there
they were. Somewhere in the
middle innings, a foul ball shot
to right field foul territory,
bounced off the stands and into
the outfield.
The Hooters girl eye
candy in orange shorts started
walking to right field, where
Rays outfielder Jonny Gomes
was patrolling. The ball was ac-
tually closer to Gomes than to
the ballgirl, and after Gomes fig-
ured that out, he took a few
steps, picked the ball up and un-
derhanded it.
I didn't catch her name. And
she didn't catch the ball.
No matter, the crowd still
applauded, seemingly louder
when she bent over to pick up
the ball.
What does this say for base-
ball fans? Or maybe for the dirty
old snowbird men from Up
North? Or maybe for a Philadel-
phia crowd?
Speaking of Philly crowds,
I'm reminded of a story from an
Eagles game some years ago,
when from the upper deck, the
team was pummeled with snow-
balls.
One of the siege's organiz-
ers, a Philadelphia attorney, is in
Harrisburg these days, as the
governor of the commonwealth.
You might remember Ed Rendell
from the 2000 presidential elec-
tion, when after the protracted
fight over the ballots, he called
for Al Gore tofit,,,,cdati'uttit.
For a bunch of spring train-
ing fans, however, the ballgirls
may prove unforgettable.

Congressional challenger



wins progressive support


Simpson disagrees with Young
over war funding, health care


Pinellas News Staff Report

DUNEDIN A progressive
group has endorsed the Demo-
cratic challenger for U.S. Rep.
C.W. "Bill" Young's congres-
sional seat.
Progressive Democrats of
America threw its support to
Samm Simpson, who also ran
for the seat in 2006. In that elec-
tion, Simpson said, she won 34
percent of the vote even though
her campaign funding amounted
to a fraction of Young's war
chest.
"Progressive Democrats of
America is proud to endorse
Samm Simpson in her campaign
to bring real progressive leader-
ship to the 10th congressional


district in
Florida," said
Tim Carpenter,
the national di-
rector of the
progressive
group. "Samm
Simpson will fight for
single-payer
health care, an
end to the occupation of Iraq and
the redirection of military spend-
ing to meet the needs of the citi-
zens of Florida."
"It's imperative that we the
people-not lobbyists, career
politicians and those who buy
their way into the political
process-have a say in how we
are governed," he added. "We
must seek rational and reason-

able solutions to the serious is-
sues facing Pinellas County and
our nation during this crucial
2008 election cycle."
Simpson said she supports a
national energy and economic
transformation away from fossil
fuels and toward sustainable, al-
ternative sources like solar, wind,
hemp and hydrogen. She said
Pinellas County could be the na-
tion's solar energy capital.
Simpson also said she chal-
lenges the Bush Administration's
"assault on civil liberties" as part
of the war on terror.
"The right of habeas corpus
and the right to privacy is a
bedrock of free society," she


said. "Tragically, our Congress,
along with our schools seem to
ignore these great concepts of
liberty."
The congressional hopeful
also said she would be critical
of the pharmaceutical and credit-
card industries, work harder to
preserve the environment and en-
courage organic farming.
"Our nation is at a precipice,"
she said. "Do we continue to pur-
sue empire or do we focus on
protecting our own shores? Do
we continue a failed occupation,
or dialogue for moral reparation
and withdrawal? This is a time to
grasp the personal power of lib-
erty and freedom."

Rain, chili mix for charity


Despite the weather, Pinellas Park
firefighters raise money for MDA


By AMBER R. JIOVANI
Pinellas News

PINELLAS PARK Pouring
rain couldn't stop the Chili
Blaze.
Despite the rain, hundreds of
patrons gathered Saturday in
Pinellas Park to eat chili and help
a good cause.
The city's firefighters have
hosted their "Chili Blaze" cook-
off every year at the England
Bros. Band Shell since 2000 to
raise money for the Muscular
Dystrophy Association.
Money from the event is used
to send kids to MDA's summer
camp. Every $600 sends one
child to camp for a week. Last
year the event raised approxi-
mately $25,000.
Event spokesman Nick Del-
grosso said about 30 booths of-
fered their own chili recipes for
the tasting and judging. A panel
of 13 judges crowned winners in
three categories.
Non-stop rain, he said, turned


out a smaller crowd, though Del-
grosso said he was impressed
with the turnout.
"I am grateful to all the citi-
zens and participants that
showed up even though it rained
all night," Delgrosso said, "There
were no complaints. Everyone
was smiling."
Because the event took three
months to plan and organize, he
said, canceling was not an op-
tion.
The rain will affect the final
total raised for the charity, he
said, though organizers haven't
yet tabulated the proceeds.
The cook-off's rules say each
participant must make at least 5
gallons of chili. Some contest-
ants made more than 20 gallons
to avoid running out.
Rain didn't deter Cindy
Stoner, of St. Petersburg, who
with her husband, Bill, sampled
nine different chili concoctions.
"My favorite was the chicken
chili with the little cornbread
cube in it," she said.


The Stoners said this was
their first year at the event, and
they plan on coming back next
year, hoping the rain doesn't.
Back for his third year, Viet
Nguyen of Pinellas Park said it is
all about presentation. He said
he chose what chilis to sample
based upon the decorations.
"My favorite was at the ex-
terminator's booth," he said, "It
had a good balance of spice and
thickness."


George Collins's Cuttin Up
Barbershop had a chili booth as
well as mobile unit accepting do-
nations for haircuts.

Open class: Cook County

Professional class: Florida
Harley Owners Group won

Sam supposed to be on vaca-
tion this week, and for some
insane reason promised a
certain editor I would write a
column this week, although
there is not much more to do
here in North Carolina with
thundershowers and flooding.
Being part Floridian, without the
sun I tend to just sleep the day
away. If it wasn't for cable,
Internet and other newspapers, I
really would be isolated from
the what's going on in the world.
While searching for a topic
to write about, I came across
"Can't Grasp the Credit Crisis?
Join the Club," written by David
Leonhardt, a Yale mathematics
major writing for The New York
Times. Leonhardt wrote that af-
ter hearing the gurus of Wall
Street and the Federal Reserve
explain the root causes of the
sub-prime debacle, he had to
ask, "can you try again?" The
answers and policies made no
logical sense.
He explores how a problem
limited to the financial sector has
spread to other areas of the econ-
omy. The bundling and reselling
of these sub-prime loans as "col-
lateralized debt obligations" or
"CDOs" to investors created a
vehicle where financial houses
leveraged the loans to get them.
Because the profit was in the
transaction and not the loan it-
self, investment houses were bor-
rowing 99 percent of the loan,
providing 1 percent of the capital
to get the CDO.
As long as these CDOs sold
for more than the loan, the finan-
cial trading houses could double
their 1 percent by just a 1 per-
cent increase in the package. For
example, on a $100 million loan,
the trading house provided $1
million and the CDO then sold
for $101 million. The trading
house then doubled its money
and made $1 million. CDOs
were created and sold in the
same day.
Not to be left out, traditional
banks such as Citibank joined
the fracas. But they sold them
with loan guarantees. So why
would everyone join in on the
feeding frenzy, and allow such
high-leverage, high-risk ventures

Smoke alarms, batteries



checked in park 'sweep'


Pinellas Park firefighters conduct
rare neighborhood screening


By AMBER R. JIOVANI
Pinellas News

PINELLAS PARK Pinellas
Park firefighters went door-to-
door Wednesday to inspect
smoke alarms, replace batteries
and install new alarms at a mo-
bile home park.
After attending a fire safety
presentation last week, several
residents of Sunset Palms Mobile
Home Park on Gandy Boulevard


signed up to participate in what
came to be called the "Sunset
Smoke Alarm Sweep."
Normally, residents are asked
to make appointments for fire-
fighters to visit, fire department
spokeswoman Suzanne Boisvert
said. With as many people who
participated as many as 35
homes it would have taken too
long.
Batteries were replaced and
25 new smoke alarms were in-


stalled, she said. The new alarms
and batteries came from the
Pinellas Park Wal-Mart, funded
by grants from Sam's Club.
A sweep like Wednesday's
has been done before, she said,
but it's difficult to get personnel
together to do it.
"The firefighters," she said,
"are still on call and responsible
for emergencies."
Two engine crews and a fire
prevention inspector were on
site, a total of about a dozen
people, Boisvert said. They split
into groups, divvied up ad-
dresses and began visits.


Sunset Palms resident Judith
Arsenault said that in the 3 12
years she's lived in the park, she
saw two other mobile homes
bum down. By the time the fire
department got there, she said,
there was nothing left but the
shell of the home.
Arsenault's home has smoke
alarms in every room, and the
batteries were changed in all of
them.
"I cannot reach to change the
batteries without getting a huge
ladder," she said. 11 v a great
idea for [the firefighters] to do
this."

Three Democrats vie for House seat


VOTE I From Page 1
Charles S. McKenzie
McKenzie said he is uniquely situated
because he's lived and served in every
part of the district.
After teaching for 25 years, McKenzie
said education is his most important is-
sue, and that he would emphasize cur-
riculum.
McKenzie said he would also like to
see less importance placed on the annual
FCAT comprehensive tests, and the pos-
sible creation of an alternative to the tests.
Property taxes, homeowners insur-
ance, and the health care system, he said,
are other issues that need to be addressed.
The environment, he added, is also a
big concern.
"There is an environmental bias that
goes beyond race," McKenzie said. "Less
influential communities become a dump-
ing site for toxic waste."
He said he would like to see revital-
ization of areas in need, such as Newtown
and Midtown.
Earnest Williams
Williams, who believes he has the best
credentials for the House seat, said that
St. Petersburg has seen the lowest prop-
erty tax in 20 years and a reduction in
overall crime since he's been on council.


He said new jobs and businesses have
been developed during his tenure.
Decreasing homeowner's insurance
rates is a priority for him. Williams is a
State Farm insurance agent.
"We need to deregulate insurance
companies to stimulate competition," he
said.
Williams said he would also like to
create a hurricane fund. He also seeks re-
duced taxes for businesses and new home
buyers.
Darryl Ervin Rouson
Rouson said he was recruited by Pe-
terman to run for the seat he vacated.
Rouson said his first priority is to en-
sure that all of the funds for affordable
housing are used strictly for that purpose,
to stimulate the economy.
His next concern, he said, is to bring
faith into prisons, to help build character
and prevent recidivism.
Rouson's Web site says he will make
home ownership a reality by pushing for
lower property taxes and affordable in-
surance rates, make quality health care af-
fordable, and provide better schools and
safer neighborhoods.
Rouson said he has already begun the
fight against drug dealers. He says he
self-financed a 24-hour gun buy-back ini-
tiative in St. Petersburg.

LETTERS


Editor:
As a retailer and business
owner in Clearwater, I have seen
firsthand how tax increases have
hurt our businesses. In these tough
economic times, we just can't af-
ford to lose any more business due
to tax increases.
House Bill 681 would more
than double the tax on one group
of my customers wihle lowering
the tax on another. This discrimi-
natory tax increase is unfair and
confusing to both our customers
and the retailers.
The reason for this terrible dis-
crepancy is that one large out-of-
state corporation is pushing hard
for HB 681. The buyers of their
particular brands of snuff would
get a tax break while snuff from
all their competitors' brands could
be taxed at double the current
rates.
The state legislature should not
be in the business of giving one
corporation a competitive advan-
tage over others. I don't think the
state should treat its hard-work-
ing citizens that way.
That is why retailers from
across the state are speaking out
against HB 681. We are asking
our legislators to vote against HB
681 because it will hurt our cus-
tomers, hurt our business, and cost
jobs in a time when our economy
is struggling.
