FIVE


THINGS

YOU MUST KNOW
OPENING DAY EDITION


1. No more free parking
in the Trop's lots
That is, unless your car
holds at least four people. Oth-
erwise, parking in the Tropi-
cana Field lots, which was free
last year, will be $10. Remote
parking will be $5. For open-
ing day, there will be a looper
trolley from Downtown park-
ing to the stadium. The looper
will also run for Yankees and
Red Sox games.


2. Premium pricing isn't
the only extra charge
Sure, you'll pay extra for
those Yankees, Red Sox and
Cubs tickets. But if you wait to
buy tickets at the ballpark,
there's more. Add another $2
to the price of a ticket, if you
decide to buy at the Trop's
ticket windows.


3. Looking for
Longoria at
third? You'll
have to wait
Infielder Evan
Longoria, who had
a strong spring, was
sent back to the
Rays' Triple-A farm
club in Durham,
N.C. Willy Aybar,
who the team got
from the Atlanta
Braves, will start at
the hot comer. The
team says he's not
ready you be the
judge.


4. The highway gods have smiled on the Rays

a new paint job inside the stadium. It won't guarantee more wins
for the team, but it'll look a little less drab.

ONE MORE THING. What happened to the Devil Rays?
We don't mean the name; we know that's gone. The Florida Aquarium n
cownose-ray touch tank remains in center field as a fan attraction, and the same
ray hasn't left the Rays' jersey sleeves, though they're blue and gold now.
OK, so that's six things. Bonus!

Legislators
quash group's
move toward
incorporation

Organizers vow a
return to Tallahassee
By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Though state legislators
have quashed Palm Harbor residents' chance to vote
on incorporation in November, those who seek the
vote say they won't give up.
"We want the right to vote," said spokesman Jim
Kleyman of the Greater Palm Harbor Community
Coalition.
The coalition sought a referendum on the Nov. 4
general election ballot that would incorporate Palm
Harbor, East Lake, Ozona and Crystal Springs into
one town. As an unincorporated area, Palm Har-
bor's source of municipal services, including po-
lice, is Pinellas County. Coalition members were
spurred because they believe they paid the county
more in taxes than they were seeing in municipal
services.
See LEGISLATION I Page 4

The legislation
House Bill 1359, nixed before it could be
heard in committee in Tallahassee, would have
allowed residents of Palm Harbor, Ozona, East
Lake and Crystal Springs to:
Incorporate as the Town of Palm Harbor
Provide mechanisms of municipal
government
Continue the services of Palm Harbor
Special Fire Control District, Palm Harbor
Community Services District, East Lake Tarpon
Special Fire Control District and Pinellas
County Library Services District within town
boundaries
Provide for law enforcement.

IndyCar, Champ Car unification may have expanded

field for Sunday's Grand Prix race


One of the many benefits
of last week's confirmation
that the IndyCar Series and the
Champ Car World Series have
unified open wheel racing in
North America is the strong
possibility that race fans in St.
Petersburg will see an ex-
panded field for this year's
Honda Indy St. Pete race.
There are 26 cars for Sun-
day's race, versus 18 in 2007.
IndyCar Series officials
predicted that an additional


eight to 12 cars could be on the
grid for those IndyCar Series
events, like St. Petersburg,
held early in 2008.
"While we do not have
confirmation of exactly how
many of the former Champ
Cars teams will be running in
St. Petersburg this year, we are
making plans for more teams
and cars in our race," said Tim
Ramsberger, vice president
and general manager of the
Honda Grand Prix of St. Pe-


tersburg. "We have been plan-
ning for this possibility all
along and the addition of more
cars may require us to adjust
our schedule."
IndyCar Series league
founder Tony George indi-
cated that future schedules -
starting as early as 2009 -
would most like have approx-
imately 20 races, with about
half of the races run on ovals
and the other half run on road
courses and temporary street


courses, like the St. Petersburg
1.8-mile, 14-turn circuit.
"In just four short years, the
Honda Grand Prix of St. Pe-
tersburg has quickly become
one of the most successful and
popular races run on a tempo-
rary street course in North
America and that puts us in a
very strong position as future

IndyCar Series schedules are
developed," said Kevin Sa-
voree, managing director of
the race.

Spring


isn't over


yet, is it?

Spring training's over? It
just started, didn't it?
Maybe it's a testament to
how as we get older, time seems
to go by faster. Or maybe it's
because we get so occupied with
other things that we forget.
But the regular season
started, and it didn't start here.
Maybe it's nature's way of eas-
ing us into baseball.
I think I'd rather have the
shock treatment Opening Day at
home would provide. On the
road, listening to the game on
the radio at my desk? It's just not
the same.
I managed to get to one -
count it, one spring game as a
paying customer and not as
working media. And at that, it
was a Rays game in Winter
Haven against my favorite Amer-
ican League team, my hometown
Cleveland Indians, who won't be
back in Florida for spring work-
outs again. They're one of two
(maybe three, if Cincinnati can't
reach a deal with Sarasota)
teams to leave Florida for Ari-
zona, along with the Dodgers
from Vero Beach.
I have two spring-training
regrets. One is that I didn't get to
a game in Bradenton, down at
McKechnie Field. It's a great
ballpark, and it's great that my
other favorite team plays there -
the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Three newspapers before
now, I had a desk at the Pitts-
-.,,, -.1i Ti, to-,m -A'. i. tw with a
window seat, overlooking PNC
Park at North Shore, the ballpark
ESPN.com rated the best in
baseball, and could catch after-
noon games without the guilt of
playing hooky from work. That's
because I started work at 5 p.m.
But I grew up watching the
Bucs of the 1980s and early
1990s, so I saw the likes of
Barry Bonds (before steroids
gave him an oversized head),
Bobby Bonilla and my all-time
favorite player, Andy Van Slyke.
It was great to walk outside on a
break and take in the carnival at-
mosphere around Pirates games.
And I didn't miss Opening
Day. The ballpark opened shortly
after I started at the Trib, and I
did my level best to have Opening
Day tickets every year which I
did, even the year after I moved
to Sarasota from the 'Burgh.
This year, I'll be at Opening
Day, albeit at Tropicana Field. Ei-
ther I'll be working it, or I'll be
there with the family on season
tickets. We haven't figured that
one out yet, but if you see me in a
photo bay at the game, you'll
know what the decision was.
Gotta tell you, it's very dif-
ferent seeing a game from the
warning track at Al Lang Field
than from even the photo bays.
First, you're in play, so you've
got to pay attention, lest you get
beaned by a stray ball from the
bullpen or the batter's box.
Secondly, you hear the
crowd differently. The Cowbell
Kid, that guy with the blue hair
and Viking horns who heckles
opposing is much louder on the
field. Speaking of The Kid:
To the Houston Astros' Geoff
Blum, he said: "They misspelled
your jersey! There's no L!"
To Toronto Blue Jays short-
stop John McDonald: "E-I-E-I-
O! More like E-I-E-I-oh-for."


While getting a sunburn,
thanks to chronic forgetfulness
where sunscreen is concerned,
there was at least some off-field
entertainment. Good thing the
guy's planning to be at as many
regular-season games as he can
make.

Highest steel beams

placed on Belleair bridge


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG A mile-
stone in construction of the new
$72 million Belleair Causeway
Bridge was reached last Friday.
Structural steel that estab-
lishes the profile, or the tallest
point, of the bridge, was placed
- seven 200-foot-long haunch
beams weighing 175,000


pounds each.
The bridge will be the tallest
in Pinellas County, county
spokeswoman Meg Korakis
said.
"At 200 feet in length, this is
unusual and very significant,"
she said.
Two large cranes, with a
boom span of 120 feet each,
placed the beams.

The "Tailgate Top," in-
vented by a St. Petersburg
woman, is a line of specially
designed sealing lids for
canned beverages.
The design prevents unused
portions of beverage contained
within a can from becoming
flat, while also protecting the
drinks from contaminants at
the same time.
"Carbonated beverages do
not lose their 'punch' when the
Tailgate Top is in place and
will remain fresh tasting for a
long period of time," inventor
Pamela Gibson said. "These
beverages are less apt to go
flat and the top seals the can
and keep the insects out of the
drink too."
The Tailgate Top is manu-
factured of durable plastic ma-
terials can be reused time and
again on beverage cans to re-
seal the contents of an opened
aluminum can.

Hope still


springs


eternal

Hope humbly then; with
,. d-Hlin.v pinions soar;
Wait the ...*. ,i teacher
death, and God adore.
What future bliss, he gives
not thee to know,
But gives that hope to be
thy blessing now.
Hope p." itn..- eternal in the
human breast:
Man never is, but always
to be blest:
The soul, uneasy and con-
fin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a
life to come.
-- An Essay on Man,
by Alexander Pope

he phrase "hope springs
eternal" has been used
to announce the start of
baseball season longer than I
have been on this planet. A
quick Google search revealed
that the words were used
together 55,700 times, just in
the last few years.
Not bad if you compare
that with 3.48 million times for
baseball and hotdogs.
So how did three words
from a line written by an 18th
century satirical poet, buried on
line 95 of a four part epistle,
each of which is hellishly long,
become the opening line of
nearly every sports columnist in
the world every spring?
My exasperated English
teachers passed me in their
classes if I promised to never
again utter the words, the
meaning of which was truly
only known to God.
Several sources say the
connection is the poem "Casey
at the Bat," written in 1888 by
Ernest Thayer, a humor colum-
nist for the San Francisco Ex-
aminer It was the last column
he wrote before leaving the Ex-
aminer.
Thayer graduated from
Harvard in 1885, where he was
editor of the Harvard Lampoon.
His classmate and fellow Lam-
pooner was William Randolph
Hearst, who hired Thayer at the
Examiner as a baseball writer.
Anyway, buried there on
line 6 of that famous baseball
poem, "hope which springs
eternal in the human breast"
...the outlook wasn't -, -.
liant for the Mudville Nine that
day;
The score stood four to
two, with but one inni,.. more
to play,
And then when Cooney
died at first, and Barrows did
the same,
A sickly silence fell upon
the patrons of the game.
A .li,, :.lii..* few got up to
go in deep despair The rest
Cli,,.. to that hope which
,.1, in.... eternal in the human
breast;
They ',..,...li,. if only Casey
could get but a whack at that -
We'd put up even money,
now, with Casey at the bat.
This will be the 11th sea-
son for the Rays since their
opening day in 1998, five years
to the day after Potter Media
purchased this paper.
Just like the Rays, hopes
springs eternal that we have a
better year than before. Their
record over the years has not
yet been good, but that's past,
and every year the slate is


wiped clean.
We should all hope that
baseball just as life will get bet-
ter with age and wisdom, tem-
pered with reasonable goals.
So, go Rays!

Legislature stops Palm Harbor bill


LEGISLATION I From Page 1
"We are a donor community,"
Kleyman said in the coalition's
formal response Monday. "We
give more taxes back to Pinellas
County than we directly receive
back to our community. We can
more effectively, efficiently and
passionately govern ourselves
than the county can."

assembled a
panel to draft a
feasibility study,
which was pre-
sented to the leg-
islature. At the
request of State
Sen. Mike Fasano
Fasano, R-New
Port Richey, the coalition gathered
more than 1,300 signatures on a
petition to support the legislation.
Rep. Peter
Nehr, R-Tarpon
Springs, showed
the coalition a
letter from the
chairman of the
Government Ef-
ficiency and Ac-
countability Nehr
Council that said
legislation authorizing the No-
vember vote will not be heard in
this legislative session.
The chairman, State Rep.
Frank Attkisson, R-St. Cloud,
said the council would not hear
the bill because of the "uncer-
tainty of the property tax situation
in Florida and a remaining de-
cline of the housing market, as
well as an overall financial strain
on the state's budget ."
"In my opinion," Attkisson
said, "this is not the right time to
pass this type of legislation."
Kleyman responded: "Are we,
as residents of our community,
with all access to information on
our projected revenues and ex-
penses, facts on taxes we currently
pay and amounts that are returned
directly to our community, with
comparisons in services provided
to our community versus those in
the surrounding community, to be
trusted with this vote?"
"Apparently," he continued,
"someone in the Legislature, not
Rep. Nehr but someone more sen-
ior, thinks that we aren't smart
enough, aren't concerned enough,
aren't righteous enough to take
more control over our local gov-
ernment and our communities."
Nehr, who sponsored the bill
though he said he had no opinion
to Palm Harbor's incorporation,
said Attkisson's letter was not spe-
cific to Palm Harbor, and was
"made to address any area in
Florida who may want to incorpo-
rate."
Nehr and Fasano said they
would sponsor the legislation un-
less it imposed a greater tax bur-
den on Palm Harbor-area resi-
dents.
Attkisson's letter was bol-
stered by correspondence Nehr


Douglas E. Jessmer/Pinellas News


received from an analyst for the
Legislative Committee on Inter-
governmental Relations (LCIR),
a joint House-Senate committee.
"The estimated budget in the
Palm Harbor study is one-fifth the
average amount reported by 10
cities of similar size to Palm Har-
bor," Senior Legislative Analyst
Chuck Hungerford wrote. "Our
analysis suggests that the City of
Palm Harbor would need to gen-
erate more in revenues or reduce,
or possibly eliminate some gov-
ernment services identified in this
feasibility study."


ment 1," Kleyman said. "There
never was a need to raise taxes."

Coalition: Analysis was off
The coalition says the 10 cities
Hungerford cited are Plantation,
Deltona, Sunrise, Lakeland, Mi-
ami Beach, Pompano Beach,
Palm Bay, West Palm Beach,
Clearwater and Miramar.
Kleyman said in the coalition's
response that the Legislature's
analysis does not consider the sub-
stantial differences between those
cities and Palm Harbor, and is a
"fundamentally flawed approach."


"Apparently, someone in the Legislature...
thinks that we aren't smart enough, aren't
concerned enough, aren't righteous enough
to take more control over our local
government and our communities."
JIM KLEYMAN
Spokesman, Greater Palm Harbor Community Coalition


Nehr said the Palm Harbor
coalition "did raise some points
that may have changed the staff
analysis and this may be looked at
in the future."
Kleyman said in the coalition's
response that Nehr must insist the
legislation be placed on the next
LCIR agenda, and that Hunger-
ford be presented with the coali-
tion's response.
"We are not asking the Legis-
lature to create a new municipal-
ity," he said. "Rather, we are ask-
ing the Legislature to give the
citizens of north Pinellas unin-
corporated areas the right to vote
on incorporation."
"We promised Rep. Nehr that
we could incorporate and operate
a municipality with the revenues
we would receive at projected
levels after the impact of Amend-


The group points to Lakeland,
which has its own electric utility
company, generating more than
$340 million in revenues and $312
million in expenditures. Kleyman
said a more valid approach is "to
more closely reflect the revenues
that the proposed incorporation
area would receive and the serv-
ices it would provide."
"The estimated expenditures
projected for Palm Harbor would
be considerably less than the
other 10 municipalities analyzed
for comparison in the study,"
Kleyman said. "Our analysis con-
cludes what we have been pro-
moting all along, that Palm Har-
bor would be 'City Light' which,
when translated, would not di-
rectly supply similar services as
those stated in the other munici-
palities."


Those services, he said, are al-
ready provided by the county,
taxed separately or privately pro-
vided such as police and fire
protection, and water and sewer
service.
No mention was made by any
staff analysis that the coalition's
projected expenditures were
flawed, miscalculated or lacking,
the response continued, adding
that the Florida Office of Eco-
nomic and Demographic Re-
search reported in late February
that "with regard to revenues, we
found the submitted estimate to
be adequate and we have no
reservation with the information
submitted."
Kleyman said the coalition is
certain that the Legislature's
analysis was flawed, "and that we
could have convinced Hunger-
ford, his staff and House mem-
bers of this, given enough time. In
the end, we received the analysis
too late in the legislative process,
and wish that Hungerford had
submitted his analysis sooner."

Coalition will continue
The coalition, Kleyman said,
will counter objections and legal
limitations that may postpone the
vote to incorporate.
"The coalition is committed to
complete transparency in its dis-
closures and partnerships" he said.
"Incorporation, as we propose
it, will mean less government,
more efficient government and
better representation for the town
citizens," he said. "This is a Re-
publican goal at its core."
Kleyman said the coalition
will return to Tallahassee next
year to try again.
"I sincerely hope that Rep.
Nehr, or whomever is elected to
represent us in the Florida House,
commits to sponsoring this bill
again," he said.

Man charged


after killing


pedestrian


with his truck


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG A tourist from
Connecticut was killed by an alleged drunk
driver early Wednesday morning on the
Pinellas Bayway.
Just after midnight, James Kenneth Dean
Jr., 53, of St. Petersburg was driving his
pickup northbound on the Bayway when he
struck Timothy 0. Wood, 24. Police say
Wood was walking along the east shoulder,
outside of the travel lanes.
Dean was charged with DUI manslaugh-
ter, DUI property damage, and leaving the
scene of a serious-injury crash.
Dean continued driving northbound to
the entrance of Palma Del Mar, where he
lives. He then drove off the east side of the
road, through several bushes, then crossed
the entrance road and struck the planted
center median. After that, he crossed the
exit road, turned around, crossed the road
again, and came to rest in the center median.
Police initially treated the Palma Del
Mar incident as a DUI crash, because they
didn't know about the pedestrian accident.
After authorities got the call about the
pedestrian, responders found his body along
with pieces of a vehicle they say was Dean's
truck.
