Though a landslide, more
than 200 write-in votes cast


A view looking east down Second Street North toward Downtown and the proposed new Rays waterfront ballpark.


By AMBER R. JIOVANI I Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG
Several residents, and a few nonresidents, of
the city shared their opinions on the pro-
posed redevelopment of Tropicana Field,
part of a plan the Tampa Bay Rays unveiled in
November 2007.
The team plans a new downtown waterfront sta-
dium on the site of Al Lang Field. A key source of
funding for the project is the sale and redevelopment
of the Tropicana Field land.
Developers want to take the 85-acre site and "cre-
ate a dynamic new mixed-use community," offering
shopping, entertainment, restaurants and cafes.
Downtown residents, workers, visitors, and tourists
will benefit from new parks and plazas with every-
thing connected by tree-canopied streets according
to the Rays' project Web site, majorleaguedown-
town.com.
That Web site also claims the redevelopment will
bring in new tax revenue, provide new jobs and var-
ious housing options, including workforce housing.
Three bids from developers were received by the
city before the March 18 deadline, one each from
Archstone-Madison, Hines Interests and Williams
Quarters.
Some residents want to slow the process down,
thinking it is unnecessary to put this on the Novem-
ber ballot when many questions remain unanswered.


Hines Interests


"If we would have a stadium down
there, we would have a
gridlock of traffic." EDDIE SCHMIDT

"With the proposals I've seen,
it's going to make a big impact
on that area, the dome district,
and I'm all in favor of that."
MARK FERGUSON

"We don't have the
money for social services, we don't
have the money for the arts and cultural
things but we have money for boys'
toys." MARK KAMLETTER

ST. PETERSBURG The for-
mer head of the St. Petersburg
NAACP branch walked away
from a special state House elec-
tion Tuesday with a landslide.
Darryl E. Rouson, who's also
an attorney, won the seat repre-
senting House District 55 with
more than 87 percent of the vote,
garnering 1,419 ballots.
Write-in candidates took 207
votes. An announced write-in,
Calvester Benjamin-Anderson,
got 148 of those ballots.
Rouson will serve the remain-
der of Frank Peterman Jr.'s term,
which ends in January 2009. Pe-
terman resigned from the House


Pinellas News Staff Report
LARGO A former Pinellas
County high school teacher was
arrested after bringing a female
student to his private residence.
Thomas J.
Anderson, 59, of
Largo, was
charged Tuesday
afternoon with
felony interfer-
ence with child
custody.
The charge is Anderson
in connection
with an incident Feb. 6, in which
Anderson asked the student, age
16, to skip class with him. The
victim agreed, deputies said, so
Anderson arranged for a substi-
tute teacher at his Seminole High


seat when Gov. ELECTION
Charlie Crist
appointed him
to lead the state 10
juvenile justice
department. W
Rouson may
run for the seat in November. One
candidate, Republican Paul Gold-
ing of Sarasota, filed for the Nov.
4 election.
House District 55 covers parts
of Pinellas, Hillsborough, Mana-
tee and Sarasota counties. Almost
30,000 of the district's voters are
in southeast St. Petersburg, and
the remaining 15,000 voters are
spread among the other three
counties.
See ELECTION I Page 5


School classroom and told ad-
ministrators he had a doctor's ap-
pointment.
Anderson allegedly told the
victim to meet him off-campus, so
he could avoid being seen leaving
school with a minor. The charge is
a felony because Anderson took
the student off campus without
lawful permission.
Anderson took the student
home and asked her for a mas-
sage, deputies said. When the vic-
tim asked to be taken home, An-
derson dropped her off near her
home to avoid being seen.
The victim told a school coun-
selor about the incident the next
day, which prompted an investi-
gation. The arrest was made after
the case was referred to the state
attorney's office.


Duck chicks rescued from drain in Palm Harbor Police seek suspect


Pinellas News Staff Report
ST. PETERSBURG The Hu-
mane Society of Pinellas re-
sponded to a call April 10 about a
bundle of duck chicks lost down a
drain pipe.
An employee from Whitney
Bank in Palm Harbor called after
watching the 10 ducks fall
through a drain grid. The mother


duck, according to the society,
was "obviously distraught."
The society dispatched a certi-
fied animal control officer to the
scene. When the officer arrived,
the mother was lingering at a dis-
tance and the chicks were still in
the pipe.
After an hour of encourage-
ment, one after another found
their way out.

Drawing up plans



for Tropicana Field


A quick look at the three redevelopment proposals

for the 85-acre property, once baseball is gone


Archstone-Madison: 'Ecoverde'
Archstone-Madison's planners say that to create their
"Ecoverde" group of neighborhoods, they looked beyond the
boundaries of the Tropicana Field site to create a vision that
includes surrounding buildings including an existing
warehouse, meat wholesale parcel, U-Haul parcel, a vacant city-
controlled parcel and the Graham Rogul Housing site.
The four distinct neighborhoods of the development:
* The Galleria shopping and entertainment neighborhood would


have a traditional urban streetscape with wide sidewalks.
* The EcoWalk transforks Booker Creek into an urban
pedestrian promenade.
* The Gas Plant Park neighborhood has at its heart a large
park.
* The Garden neighborhood would include three office
buildings within landscaped grounds.


Hines Interests: 'West End St. Pete'


Hines Interests of Houston, who worked with the Tampa Bay
Rays to develop a proposal rolled out in November, say their
West End St. Pete plan would offer "unique shopping
experiences, restaurants and cafes, family entertainment and
new housing, all located around lush park spaces and
pedestrian promenades."
Hines was the only one of the three developers to say how
much they'd pay the City of St. Petersburg for the property --
$50 million.
Hines promises:


* An urban "Live-Work-Dine-Play" community that addresses
the shortage of quality retail in Pinellas County
* An outdoor urban village designed to be both pedestrian and
automobile friendly, spread over10O city blocks
* New for-sale and for-rent housing alternatives for downtown
that reflect the diversity of St. Petersburg, including a workforce
housing component
* A new green and open space network, with a major
enhancement of Booker Creek and the enhancement,
realignment and extension of the Pinellas Trail as its foundation


NRP Group, DeBartolo, RGA Group: 'Williams Quarter'


The Williams Quarter partnership promises street-level retail and
anchor stores, a boutique hotel, workforce and affordable housing
and park areas, at a total construction value of more than $773
million. The specifics:
* 4,000 overall units of "for rent" housing, mostly 1 and 2
bedrooms, with as much as 20 percent as "affordable" units


* Two large urban retail stores, and street-level retail
* A 250-room boutique hotel, which could be removed from the
plan to allow more retail property
* Parks in the remaining open space, especially on the site's
southern border and eastern "Gateway" park, and a "riverwalk"
for use as pedestrian retail corridor

Sunshine

and spring

cleaning

go together

For the last couple of week-
ends, it seems I've been
wrapped up in spring
cleaning and it doesn't even
feel like spring.
You'd think spring cleaning
would be around the same time
as spring training, but baseball's
regular season is upon us.
Too late.
They say "sunshine is the
best disinfectant." Around the
house, it's been nice to see sun-
light in places that haven't seen
it for a while. It might even help
with the mold, but I'm not sure.
Even without natural light,
the workers at Tropicana Field
apparently did their spring clean-
ing in a more timely manner.
Our seats at the Trop for Open-
ing Day were in great shape.
Of course, the ballpark
looked a lot better than it has in
recent years. The faux brick wall
facade in the outfield didn't quite
seem right, but with the sky-blue
paint, for whatever reason, the
pole-building ambiance of the
Trop isn't nearly as harsh or con-
fining as it once was.
Not bad for a ballpark that
probably won't be around in five
years.
We ran a story in this edition
about how St. Petersburg resi-
dents came out to either support
or show disdain for the Tampa
Bay Rays' plans to build a new
ballpark and redevelop the Tropi-
cana Field property.
After a quick chat with our
reporter who covered the meet-
ing, a majority of the folks who
spoke were positive about the
waterfront ballpark.
But the opposition is galva-
nizing, it appears. First, it was
the random bumper-sticker sight-
ing, with slogans something
along the line of "half a billion
dollars to move a stadium 16
blocks." Now it's a group called
St. Pete POWW the POWW
stands for "Preserving Our Wa-
terfront and Wallets" that's
made its feelings known.
The group lists several rea-
sons the waterfront ballpark pro-
posal should be scuttled, includ-
ing cost, environmental impact
and traffic. The one I focus on
the most, being a wary reporter
used to the shenanigans of big-
city government, is what the
group calls "secrecy and fairness
concerns."
St. Pete POWW says, as we
have reported in these pages, that
city council members knew
about the Rays proposal for
more than a year before the St.
Petersburg Times was tipped off.
The council and the team signed
an agreement to keep the lid on
stadium plans and talks, which
the group finds objectionable.
Should that stop ballpark
plans? I don't think so, though it
should certainly call city leaders'
judgment into question come
Election Day.
If sunshine is the best disin-
fectant, how unkempt is this deal
between the Rays and the city?
None of us have a mop big
enough, or enough time, to clean
that deal up, you might think.
At the Trop, it took a pretty
large cleaning crew to get the
stadium ready. At my house, it
was one person me with a
mop bucket, though Angie and
the girls played as large a role


with other cleaning utensils. I
don't think any of us could han-
dle the mire of the city's secret.
Without sounding like a
conspiracy theorist, it makes you
wonder just what your elected
officials are really up to.

County approves retail



zoning, boat docks


Home-improvement store
planned for Tarpon Springs


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG County
commissioners approved a retail
zoning change and two boat
docks recently.
Lowe's Home Center Inc.
was granted a zoning change to
build a new store in 13 acres at
the northwest comer of East Pine
Street and U.S. 19.
New docks in Clearwater and


Seminole were also approved.
The zoning amendment,
which converts the industrial
property for retail use, was ap-
proved and submitted by the City
of Tarpon Springs.
The Pinellas Planning Coun-
cil, after two public hearings,
voted to recommend approval,
though the county staff did not
agree.
Commissioners voted unani-


mously to approve the change.
The City of Clearwater in-
tends to build a 42-slip commer-
cial dock in a boat basin off
Mandalay Channel.
The project is a partnership
with the Sandpearl Resort, and
the resort will pay for construc-
tion.
The general public will get 15
slips, and 30 slips will be leased
by the resort.
The docks are designed
around seagrass beds, with a path
to be built through an opening in
mangroves.


Travis Corp. and East
Madeira Corp. plan to expand
the Bay Pines commercial ma-
rina in the waters of Long
Bayou.
The proposal expands the ex-
isting marina from 72 wet slips
and 300 dry slips to 163 wet and
700 dry.
It also removes portions of
the existing marina and the con-
struction of almost 32,000 square
feet of new decking.
Existing fueling, pump-out
and loading ramps for dry stor-
age will remain.

Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG After a
false start April 5, Pinellas
County Utilities' Recycle Re-

the finish line or even float is
questionable, but the enthusiastic


crews have a great time and also
learn some sound environmen-
tal lessons," he added.
Each participant will receive a


commemorative item, and water
and light snacks will be provided
for participants. Winners in each
category will win trophies.
The races:

Last year, Caughell said,
more than 200 participated.
Crews of as many as six people
built the boats, and adopted
names "worthy of their cre-
ations," he said.

AARP senior driving
course slated
The nation's first and largest
classroom refresher course for
motorist age 50 and older starts
in Clearwater this May. The
new AARP Driver Safety Pro-
gram will help seniors adapt to
changing circumstances before
hitting the road.
"We understand that driv-
ing isn't just a matter of con-
venience it is a means of in-
dependence and control," said
Jennifer Burnett, event hostess
and executive director of the
non-profit Golda Meir/Kent
Jewish Center. "We want to
help older motorists refresh the
skills needed to continue driv-
ing safely."
Class participants will re-
view driving skills, techniques,
and strategies to help adjust to
normal age-related physical
changes that may affect driving
ability. The interactive course
involves video presentations
and group discussions.
The first course will be split
into two four-hour sessions May
5 and 7, from 1-5 p.m. Ensuing
courses will be held monthly.
The courses will be held at
the center, 2010 Greenbriar
Blvd., Clearwater. Advance reg-
istration is required. For center


members, the class will be $10,
payable to AARP. Non-mem-
bers will pay $3 to the center
along with the $10 AARP fee.

A Pinellas County Tradition

IN OUR VIEW



Answer the concerns,

build the ballpark

There are lots of questions about the proposed waterfront ball-

park for the Tampa Bay Rays, and some of those questions
were fired at St. Petersburg city council members this week.
Among them:
How will the stadium affect the course for the Honda Grand Prix
of St. Petersburg?
What environmental impact is there to filling in part of the marina?
Why tear down two perfectly good ballparks?
And what about limited downtown parking?
We're all in favor of civic improvements. The new stadium, if it
delivers everything the Rays promise, will be a great addition to the
downtown community and to the city and region in general.
What we want to know, like many others, is how much the proj-
ect including Tropicana Field redevelopment will really cost tax-
payers of the city. And if the burden is great, can it be spread across
the region instead?
Rays President Matt Silverman told council members and citizens
that the team is committed to answering questions. We're happy to
hear that, especially in light of the secret pact the team had with the
city for at least a year before the plan went public late last year.
There's a strong sense in the community that the stadium is a done
deal, save for the November ballot, when residents decide.
Here's hoping every question finds the correct answer, the stadium
plan proceeds, and we hear once again the words "play ball" from a
pitcher's mound where Al Lang Field's center field grass grows now.


Highway fix a late lesson

in supply and demand
U.S. Highway 19 cuts across the heart of Pinellas County, the
most densely populated county in Florida and that statis-
tic includes Miami-Dade.
But the most vital north-south artery across the county hasn't kept
pace with the county's growth. Highway officials have only turned
their attention to expansion and reconstruction in the last few years,
it seems.
As if that's not bad enough, there's no real good east-west route
across Pinellas County, no direct route from St. Petersburg to Clear-
water and no good way to get from Interstate 275 to Clearwater.
We understand that after U.S. 19 construction in north Pinellas
Park is complete, there will be roadwork pain south of Gulf To Bay
Boulevard in Clearwater. And then there may not be more money to
streamline the highway through the county's center.
There has to be a proactive way to make the supply of adequate
highway on U.S. 19 meet ever-growing traffic demands. The daily
snags on that road are borderline ridiculous.

Quick shots
Speaking of traffic snags: A little poke at Hillsborough County
is in order. If it weren't for traffic lights on the Courtney Campbell
Causeway between Clearwater and Tampa, traffic would move much
smoother.

OUR READERS WRITE

New Rays stadium would grow
team's worth at citizen expense


Editor:
A St. Petersburg Times article
April 13 regarding the stadium
opponent group, POWW (Pre-
serve Our Wallets and Water-
front) recounts Mr. Michael
Kalt's dramatic perception of the
Downtown Neighborhood Asso-
ciation's Feb. 12 meeting of their
baseball proposal committee as
something out of a "Star Wars
movie" full of "POWW all-stars"
at which he -' i yelled at."
I attended that meeting with
other members of the DNA sta-
dium committee and found it to
be a thoughtful group of people
who represented many down-
town areas. While I am a
POWW Steering Committee
member, many of those attending
were not. There was no yelling.
I can, however, understand
why Mr. Kalt may have experi-
enced the meeting as difficult
and stressful for he was peppered
with many insightful questions
to which he gave few concrete
answers.
My question for him was, "If
the City were to build the Rays a
stadium, by how much do you
envision the value of Mr. Stern-
berg's franchise would in-
crease?" Mr. Kalt's response was
(quote from verbatim notes),
"We have been considering pos-


sibly talking about maybe giv-
ing the City a percentage of that
increase in value when we sell."
When asked the same question at
ensuing meetings, Mr. Kalt has
evaded the issue by responding,
"That's not what this is all
about."
Increasing the Rays franchise
value by using public land and
taxpayer money is exactly what
this is all about. It is the name of
the game; it is why wealthy in-
vestors buy teams.
As the Times noted in its
April 4 piece on the Baltimore
Orioles, Eli Jacobs bought that
team for $70 million. After the
new ballpark opened, Jacobs
sold the team for $173 million.
In Texas, thanks to a new $1 bil-
lion stadium set to open in 2009,
the Cowboys' worth has in-
creased by 28 percent which
added about $350 million to the
value of the franchise. Their
owner, Jerry Jones, is said to
have spent $5 million pushing
his plan.
With that kind of money at
stake, it is easy to see why the
Rays have no problem doing
whatever it takes to get what they
want.

Firefighters prepare Aaron Rimer, 34, of St. Pete Beach, the driver of a van involved in an accident April 10,
for transport to a hospital. Rimer was pinned inside his vehicle following the accident.



One dies of injuries


following accident


Two tourists hit by van, which then flipped


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG One of
two tourists hit by an oncoming
van April 10 died as a result of
her injuries.
A van driven by Aaron
Rimer, 34, of St. Pete Beach,
struck a tree and two tourists be-
fore coming to rest on its side on
the 7700 block of Blind Pass


Road just before 11:30 a.m.
Heather Whalley, 33, of
Charlotte, N.C., died Saturday
from her injuries. She was walk-
ing with her husband, Seth, 34,
when they were hit by Rimer's
vehicle.
The Whalleys were in critical
condition when responders ar-
rived, and Rimer was pinned in-
side the van and seriously in-


jured, according to St. Pete
Beach Fire Dept. spokesman
Mike Handoga.
Within 15 minutes of fire-
fighters' arrival, the Whalleys
were transported to a trauma
center and Rimer was extracted.
St. Pete Beach, Treasure Is-
land and South Pasadena fire-
fighters responded. St. Pete
Beach police are investigating.

Suspect sought after


St. Pete cat beating


Owner warns
other animals
could be targets

Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG The
owner of a cat beaten to death
Saturday wants answers.
At about noon, Paul Gilchrist
said, one of his cats, a Siamese
named Amy, was beaten outside
his home, at the corner of
Burlington Avenue North and
23rd Street North.
After the beating, the cat suf-
fered a heart attack, was revived
and was breathing with the as-
sistance of a hand pump,
Gilchrist said. Early Sunday
morning, he added, he author-
ized the cat's euthanasia.
An anonymous tipster called
the county's animal services de-
partment to report the beating,
but by the time the department
responded, Gilchrist said, he
found the car and took her to an
animal hospital.
The tipster later told St. Pe-
tersburg police the suspect is a
black man in his late teens or
early 20s, about 6 feet tall, thin
build, short hair, no shirt, walking
two small dogs on a leash and
carrying a big stick, probably the
handle from a shovel or rake.
Though the vet bill was more
than $2,000, Gilchrist said he of-


Amy, a Siamese
cat owned by
Paul Gilchrist of
St. Petersburg,
was found
beaten last
Saturday after
an alleged
attack. The cat
was put down
last Sunday.

fers a $500 reward to anyone
who supplies information lead-

Despite the $2000 plus vet-
erinary bill from the vain attempt
to keep Amy alive, there is a re-
ward of $500 to anyone who
supplies information leading to
the arrest and conviction of the
perpetrator.
"It was Amy on Saturday. It


could be your pet by the middle
of this week, and it could be
someone's child by next week,"
he said. "This cowardly individ-
ual may pick on a 11-year-old, 9-
pound cat today, but what other
helpless victims will be next?"

Pinellas News


Bottlenecks

everywhere,

it appears

Delta and Northwest
Airlines announced a
merger, and with the
lack of east-west corridors in
Pinellas County, there is a con-
nection.
If you happened to try to
get to St. Pete Beach or Fort
Desoto last Saturday to enjoy
the beach and absolutely per-
fect weather anytime after 10
a.m., no matter where you
came from, you would have
found yourself in the largest
and longest line of cars, and
not moving an inch on Inter-
state 275 from just south of
22nd Avenue South until past
the toll booth on 54th Avenue
South, just west of Eckerd Col-
lege.
No matter what you were
driving, or what alternate route
you considered or tried, if you
wanted to get to the beach you
had to go through this two-lane
toll booth and it took forever
to get through.
The exit lane to get off I-
275 is a single-lane feed. Even
if you went south, going over
the Sunshine Skyway, and
came back north you still had
to get in a single-lane ramp to
get on to the Pinellas Bayway.
And if you didn't have correct
change, there was only one
lane to go through. There is a
dedicated SunPass lane, but un-
less the cars in front of you va-
porized, you had to wait until
you were at the toll booth to
get into that lane. What should
have taken 30 minutes became
a two-hour nightmare just to
get to the toll booth. Even if
you wanted to leave, you
couldn't because the roadway
was blocked.
Add a few fender-benders
like the one on the Intracoastal
Bridge, and the hot Florida sun,
and you will lose a lot of
tourists who won't come back
to the country's best beach.
This wasn't a holiday weekend.
The point: Even with mul-
tiple exit lanes and feeder
lanes, if you have only one toll-
booth lane open, traffic backs
up, and no one gets to their
destination be it Tierra Verde,
Fort De Soto or St. Pete Beach.
Now there are other
beaches in Pinellas County, and
they are crowded too, but there
is a common problem. The
county and the state need to
figure out a better way to move
east-west traffic in this county.
With the volume of traffic
growing in this county, there
are too many bottlenecks.
It will take tons of con-
crete and funding, but a better
plan needs to happen, and
hopefully in our lifetime.
So what's the connection
to the airline merger? Imagine
that toll booth is Atlanta's
Hartsfield-Jackson Interna-
tional Airport. Merge Delta and
Northwest and no matter how
much you want to get to the
beach, you will have to go
through Atlanta, adding time,
expense, and a lack of choices
of destinations.
What has the talking heads
worried is what this merger
will to other airlines. Other
mergers will mean less choices,
higher prices and less service at
other major hub airports, like
Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit,
Minneapolis-St. Paul, Salt


Lake City, and Boston.
For other airlines to fill the
void will take months and in
some cases years. Which is just
like fixing the east-west access
we have in Pinellas County.

Resort gets 'Two Palm'



environmental award


TradeWinds properties on St. Pete
Beach previously recognized


ST. PETE BEACH The
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) today
recognized TradeWinds Island
Grand Resort and TradeWinds
Sandpiper Suites as the state's
second and third properties to re-
ceive the Florida Green Lodging
Program "Two Palm" designa-
tion.
The designation recognizes in-
creased energy conservation and
pollution prevention measures
since the properties' "One Palm"
honor.
The voluntary state initiative
provides the lodging industry
with technical assistance, en-


Drive-thru tax filing
at the last minute


couraging hotels and motels to
adopt cost-saving "green" prac-
tices that reduce waste and con-
serve natural resources.
"We are proud to welcome
these properties into the elite
group of Two Palm Hotels," DEP
Southwest District Director Deb-
orah Getzoff said. "They serve as
good examples to the other hotels
in Florida's Green Lodging Pro-
gram that are working towards
the Two Palm status."
To receive the "Two Palm"
designation, hotels must maintain
the green practices established
during "One Palm" designation
for at least 12 consecutive


months.
Properties conduct an envi-
ronmental baseline assessment
and demonstrate a reduction in
energy and water consumption as
well as waste disposal. In addi-
tion, facilities must have devel-
oped and implemented perform-
ance improvement goals and
evaluated their progress.
The highest level of designa-
tion is the Three Palm designa-
tion, which occurs after a prop-
erty has maintained "Two Palm"
status and demonstrated continual
improvement for three consecu-
tive years.
"We take pride in being the
first resorts in the region and only
the second and third in Florida to
achieve this prestigious designa-
tion," TradeWinds Island Resorts


President Tim Bogott said. "It is
only through the continued com-
mitment and hard work of
the TradeWinds Green Team that
we're making these significant
improvements."
Since initial designation in
2007, the TradeWinds Island Re-
sorts have reduced annual waste
consumption by more than 100
tons and reduced water use by
processing more than seven mil-
lion pounds of linen using 1.3
million fewer gallons of water.
The resort facility also retro-
fitted sea turtle friendly beach-
front lighting using low watt
compact fluorescent and low
pressure sodium flood lights and
solar lighting, contributing to the
resorts' conservation of nearly
10,000 kilowatt hours in 2007.
