Planners seek

input on longtime

landmark's future


BY ASHLEY BRUNTON
PINELLAS NEWS
ST. PETERSBURG: Wind
screams through the sun baked
white, roofless gazebos spaced
along the stretch of road that leads
to The Pier, an inverted-pyramid
structure.
Few cars are parked at the me-
tered, parallel parking spaces that
stretch for miles.
The fire-engine-red trolley, a
memory from past piers (there's
been a few), clangs past.
The Pier is a landmark for locals
as striking as the Don CeSar or
the Renaissance Vinoy, but soon,
like the piers before it, it could be-
come just a memory.
The city will soon begin plan-
ning the pier's future.
No pier in the city's history has
ever made it past the 40-year
mark. The Pier turns 35 this
month and needs a facelift.
The city and Pinellas County
have identified $50 million through
tax-increment financing for future
renovation or redevelopment of the


"The best thing is that
we're a quarter mile
into the water. And
the worst thing is that
we're a quarter mile
into the water."
SUSAN ROBERTSON
The Pier's marketing manager


Pier. Construction is anticipated to
begin in 2012 when the funds be-
come available, Susan Robertson,
Pier marketing manager, said.
The Pier contends with many
ongoing challenges, she said lack
of space, design and age account
for many headaches.
The Pier is 100 percent leased,
with no ability to expand, she said.
There is only one service ele-
vator in the building, but along
with the building's other elevators,
is almost 40 years old.

1889 U A railroad pier was built by the Orange Belt Railway.
This first pier, which was privately owned, was an
immediate attraction for tourists and locals.
1906 Electric Pier, on Second Avenue North, was built with
an elaborate design and stretched 3,000 feet into the
bay. The pier was known for its dramatic night lighting.
1914 First municipal pier built, with a $40,000 city bond.
The pier was built on Second Avenue North, 10 feet from
the north side of the Electric Pier, which was
demolished.
1921 0 The Hurricane of 1921 destroys every standing pier.
The Municipal Pier was crippled.
1 925 E Million Dollar Pier construction begins. Pledges of
$300,000 were raised from the community, and the city
floated a $1 million bond issue. The new pier is built on
the Municipal Pier site, and is the first city-owned pier.
1926 Million Dollar Pier opens on Thanksgiving Day, with
ceremonies attended by more than 10,000 people. The
Mediterranean Revival casino-style structure featured a
central atrium, an open-air ballroom, terrazzo floors on
the rooftop and an observation deck. The structure's
final cost: $998,279.18.
1950s t The Million Dollar Pier remained popular as a
gathering place for card games, tourist meetings,
community sings and fishing tournaments. WSUN-TV's
"Captain Mac" children's show was televised from the
pier, in a car barn converted into WSUN's studio.
1967 Late in the year, the badly deteriorated Million Dollar
1967 IPier was demolished. A park was established
temporarily while the existing pier was built.
197 In January, The Pier opened. The inverted-pyramid
197 structure owned by the city has five levels of shopping,
dining and entertainment, as well as The Pier Aquarium
and observation decks. It's open every day, including
holidays, regardless of weather.
8 The Pier Aquarium announces plans to move to
2008 BayWalk.
N Members of the community are asked to participate
in sessions to envision The Pier's 'ideal future.' Three
half-day forums are slated across Pinellas County.
Forum results will be presented to the St. Petersburg
city council for review.

As tropical storms continue bearing

down, consumer hotline continues


FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

TALLAHASSEE: Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson today
reminded state residents that his de-
partment's price-gouging hotline,
which was activated two weeks ago
for Tropical Storm Fay, remains oper-
ational for the approaching Tropical
Storm Hanna.
"We're encouraging the public to
report to us any instances of price-
gouging that they come across,"
Bronson said.
Under Florida law, it is unlawful
to charge exorbitant or excessive
prices for essential items including
shelter, gasoline, food, water, ice, gen-


$1,000
Amount of a fine, per violation, for
individuals or business who've been
found to have gouged prices.


$25,000
The fine, per day, for violators.


erators or lumber following the dec-
laration of an emergency, unless the
increases in the amount charged are
attributable to additional costs in-
curred by retailers.
Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state
of emergency for Fay last month, and


he signed another executive order
earlier today designating that a state
of emergency exists for Hanna.
Individuals or businesses found to
have engaged in price-gouging face
fines of up to $1,000 per violation, or
up to a maximum fine of $25,000 a
day.
"We're asking consumers to come
forward and let us know if any retail-
ers have exploited our citizens or are
profiteering from the approaching
storm," Bronson said. "This activity is
not only reprehensible, it's illegal."
Bronson is asking residents who
have any evidence that price-goug-
ing has occurred or is occurring to
report it at once to his department's
toll-free hotline at 800-435-7352.

vets honored again

FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

DUNEDIN: In recognition of those
wounded service members from all wars,
the City of Dunedin adopts a Proclama-
tion to observe Silver Star Banner Day

The Silver Star Day initiative began as

America campaign to support and assist
our nation's wounded men and women of
the Armed Forces and their families. The
sole mission of the SSFOA is for Silver
Star Day to become an American tradition
to honor wounded heroes and never for-
get the sacrifices they made.
The day is to honor wounded veterans,
including victims of friendly fire, those
suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Dis-
order, Agent Orange and Gulf War Syn-
drome.

We're black

and white,

and gray,

and read

The truth may
not be black-and-
white, but this
newspaper once
again is.
We had a great
run with color. We
DOUGLAS Egave you lots of
JED AS E photos, and we
had a great sum-
Commentary mer with commu-
nity stories that I
hope you enjoyed.
But it appears some of our
readers didn't like the color, or the
photos.
I'm surprised, given our soci-
ety's fondness for the image.
We're a civilization that, because
of television, is more and more vi-
sual.
Some newspapers have taken
that to an extreme. We didn't, but
we recognized the need for more
images and more visual content.
We started doing maps, charts, all
sorts of stuff.
We didn't forget that in the
end, a newspaper should look
like a newspaper. Some went
all TV on their readers, but we
didn't.
To underscore that point, well,
here we are, back in black... and
white.
If you liked the color, please
tell us. Better yet, tell your
friends. The more people who
support us, via readership, ad-
vertising and story submissions,
the more likely you'll see color
back on our pages.
This newspaper has been Pinel-
las County's best-kept secret this
year. You probably get that weekly
freebie thrown in your yard every
week, and you may or may not
leave it in the yard (they get wet
easily in a storm). And I'll bet if
you open it up, you just skim
through it in 30 seconds and pitch
it.
There are other weekly papers
in the county. But they're torture
to read. We've tried not to be like
that.
And of course, there's that big,
green daily paper down the street
from us, which everyone reads.
Florida's best newspaper, they say.
It's a great paper. But it doesn't
have the community news we
have.
This newspaper has a niche. It
just needs you our readers to
evangelize for it.
Newspapers are in a precarious
position these days. There've
been more than 8,000 journalism
jobs cut across America this year.
That means another 8,000 people
looking for jobs so far this year.
Heck, in one week this summer,
there were 1,000 cuts.
I sympathize, having suffered a
cut at a major daily newspaper in
early 2007. It's not easy to go
through that. But it's how some
newspapers are surviving.
It's not that people are dump-
ing print for the Internet, but
rather that newspapers aren't de-
livering the kind of content read-
ers want. And the Powers That
Be are taking out their frustra-
tions with the bottom line on the
very people who generate con-
tent people buy newspapers to
read.
Call it a fatal vicious circle.
We, on the other hand, want to
be the kind of paper you'll want to
read. To do that, we've encouraged
you to submit items to us.
Newspapers need to engage
their readers and encourage their
participation. A good newspaper
is a community in dialogue with
itself. That's what we aspire to
be.
So keep those cards and letters


coming, folks. And keep telling
your friends about this newspaper
- a newspaper that wants to be
your weekly companion.
We're black and white, and we
want to be read, all over... and all
over Pinellas County.

ST. PETERSBURG


Mayor heads to China


to discuss 'green' plans


Baker picked because of St. Pete's

energy, environmental programs


FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

St. Petersburg's mayor was in-
vited to join a national delegation of
mayors known for their green initia-
tives to travel to China and exchange
information on urban sustainability
and green cities.
Mayor Rick Baker will be among
the delegation arrives in China on
Sept. 7, and will visit Beijing, Qingdao
and Shanghai before departing on
Sept. 14.
The cost of the trip, along with
the rest of the delegation, is being
funded by the Starr Foundation,
founded in 1955 by Cornelius Vander
Starr, an insurance entrepreneur who
set up his first insurance venture in
Shanghai in 1919.
Baker was selected because of St.
Petersburg's environmental and en-
ergy programs and specifically be-


cause of his efforts
Sto expand the
"Green Cities" ini-
tiative on a national
level.
"I'm honored to
have been asked to
Baker join this delegation,
which carries with it
the ambitious goal of
partnering American and Chinese
cities in the worthwhile energy and
environment effort," Baker said. "I
am eager to share our story and I am
looking forward to seeing some of
the strategies and technologies that
cities in China are using to protect
our environment."
Baker authored the Green Cities
Action Accord, which was adopted by
the Florida League of Mayors,
Florida League of Cities and the Na-
tional League of Cities.


The mayor was asked to discuss
with the Chinese ideas for imple-
menting a Green Cities program in
China.
Green Cities, of which St. Peters-
burg was the first designated, is a
program initially developed by the
Florida Green Building Coalition to
certify cities which demonstrate that
they have implemented extensive
programs relating to energy and en-
vironmental stewardship.
The concept is for cities around
the country, and now around the
world, to become laboratories for
ideas that advance the effort to re-
duce our reliance on fossil fuels and
improve the environment.
Baker is one of a small group of
mayors leading the delegation.
While in China, discussions will
include urban sustainable environ-
ment; energy, transportation and de-
velopment policies; use of the latest
environmental technologies; energy
retrofitting for government and com-
mercial buildings; and planning for
carbon-neutral cities.

City officials help build


100th Habitat home


Three-bedroom
Childs Park home
marks milestone
BY ASHLEY BRUNTON
PINELLAS NEWS

Elected city officials raised a paint
brush Wednesday to help Habitat for
Humanity put some finishing touches
on its 100th home in St. Petersburg.
Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity
has built 153 homes in Pinellas
County, most of them in St. Peters-
burg.
The three-bedroom, two-bath-
room home at 3737 19th Ave. S. will
be occupied by Cynthia Ivey and her
14-year-old daughter Chauncey,
Jamie Cataldo, communications di-
rector for Habitat for Humanity of
Pinellas County, said.
Ivey, a manager at CASA, has been
in the Habitat program for less than a
year.
Homeowner candidates sign a
covenant to fulfill 250 to 350 sweat
equity hours first on other homes,
then their own, Cataldo said.
The home is then handed over to
the homeowner with a non-profit, 0
percent loan for the cost of supplies -
in this case around $100,000.
"This is very much a hand up, not
a hand out," she said.
The house is being built in the
Childs Park neighborhood on an ex-
isting lot, Paul Stellrecht, economic
development coordinator for the Mid-
town Economic Development de-
partment, said.
"There is a need for additional, af-
fordable single-family houses," he
said. "We want to provide more af-
fordable housing for those in need."
The partnership between the city
and Habitat brings public housing to
low income families. It gives people
the ability to have homeownership
instead of renting their whole lives,
Tom de Yampert, manager of housing
and community development, said.
After taxes and insurance, Ivey

$700 per month. A new three-bed-

$1,000, he said.
Habitat estimates it takes about

house. No experience is needed to

Federal employees' fund-raising program starts


This week marked the kick-off for
the 2008 Suncoast Combined Federal
Campaign (CFC).

More than 214 local charities in the
10 county area benefitted from dona-
tions to Suncoast CFC.

GLANCE


SPCA pet of the week


Ogre is anything but an ogre he's
more like a big friendly bear.
Some SPCA volunteers are calling
him Yogi because of his calm pensive
nature. This easygoing 9-year old Rot-
tweiler/Akita mix still has quite a bit of
spunk, and is socialized with other
dogs.
He knows the commands for "sit"
and "down" and he is housetrained.
He would be the head of the class at
the SPCA's free obedience course.
See him at the SPCA Tampa Bay,
9099 130th Ave. N., Largo. For infor-
mation: 727-586-3591 or www.sp-

left Palm Harbor late last week to help
a Brevard County shelter.
The South Animal Care Center of
Brevard County asked for Suncoast's
assistance. Tropical Storm Fay flooded
the area and left many animals home-
less.
Cats and dogs previously at the
shelter were "crowded out" by the
flood victims, and adoptions came to a
standstill.
"Thanks to a great response from
our foster parents, we will be assisting
dozens of these animals who are in-
nocent victims of the circumstances,"
Suncoast Executive Director Rick
Chaboudy said.

PUBLIC SAFETY


Man sought in


hospital break-ins


PINELLAS NEWS STAFF REPORT


ST. PETERSBURG: An unidentified man
who broke into an office building of Mease Coun-
tryside Hospital and fled with cash and checks
Sunday morning, is also suspected in the burglary
of Morton Plant Hospital earlier that morning.
Deputies said the suspect entered the Medical
Arts Building, located at 1840 Mease Drive in
Safety Harbor at about 8:54 a.m. Sunday, and at-
tempted to pry open several office doors and suc-
cessfully entered some.
Deputies say the suspect also attempted to pry
open one door in the main hospital building.


The suspect is described as a black male, 30-
35 years of age, about 6-foot-2 and weighing about
250 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a brown short
sleeve, button-down collared shirt, with what ap-
pears to be a blue floral print across the bottom;
dark colored jeans; and a black or dark blue base-
ball cap.
He is also believed to have been driving a
2007 or 2008 white Chrysler Pacifica.
Anyone with information concerning this in-
vestigation is asked to contact Det. John Waugh
of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Burglary
and Pawn Unit at 727-582-6200.

"We have parts they don't even make any-
more," she said.
Plumbing issues are a huge expense for the
building, due to its galvanized water pipes.
"It's not real cost efficient," she said.
The effects of salt water on the building, air
conditioning and the utilities that run under-
neath the building add to the bill.
"The best thing is that we're a quarter mile
into the water," she said. "And the worst thing
is that we're a quarter mile into the water."

CLEARWATER BEACH


Resort honored for water use


Shephard's Beach
the 400th Water
CHAMP hotel


FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

Shephard's Beach Resort has
signed up to become the 400th estab-
lishment to participate in the South-
west Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's award-winning Water
Conservation Hotel And Motel Pro-
gram (Water CHAMP).
As a Water CHAMP property, the
popular Clearwater Beach resort
agrees to participate in the District's
linen and towel reuse program. By im-
plementing the program, the hotel or
motel management agrees to launder
linens every third day of a guest's stay


unless the guest requests otherwise.
Paul Andrews, general manager of
Shephard's Beach Resort, said they
were using their own linen and towel
reuse program but joined Water
CHAMP because the materials were
easier for customers and staff to un-
derstand.
"The materials provided through
Water CHAMP are very well done and
our staff appreciated the bilingual train-
ing video," said Andrews. "Switching
to the District's program was effort-
less. It is very easy to implement."
Linen and towel reuse programs
have become highly popular in the ho-
tel industry because they can save a
significant amount of water, staff time
and money as well as minimize the
amount of detergents that enter the
environment.
"We're excited to have another well


known resort take part in the pro-
gram," said Robin Grantham, Water
CHAMP coordinator. "More and more
hotel managers recognize the value of
protecting our water resources."
There are 921 hotels and motels
throughout the District's 16-county re-
gion, of which 400 are Water CHAMP
properties. The participating hotels
and motels account for more than 62
percent of the available hotel rooms
within the District.
Hotels and motels can use up to 300
gallons per occupied room per day, but
most average 150 gallons per day. Be-
coming a Water CHAMP property can
save up to 50 gallons per occupied
room per day.
"Depending on their size, hotels
and motels can use more than 20,000
gallons of water per day," said
Grantham.

The retrospective show covers more than
30 years of work by the celebrated Florida
painter.
A native to Tampa Bay, Still established
a remarkable international career.
"We are thankful for the donors, mem-
bers and staff that are the backbone of this
museum," Barshel said. "We look forward
to working with them as we plan for the re-
location and opening of'a'new museum."
Under the leadership of Executive Di-
rector Michelle Turman, the museum staff
will work closely with Pinellas County staff
and county commissioners on a transition
plan and best use for the Walsingham site.
Commission Chairman Bob Stewart said
"the Gulf Coast Art Museum is a great as-
set to our community and visitors. We look
forward to working with museum leader-
ship on the next steps."

Clothes To Kids


seeks variety


of volunteers


FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

In the current economic climate,
many families with school children in
our community are struggling to
outfit their children for school.
More and more of these families
are seeking help from Clothes To
Kids, a non-profit organization that
provides free new and gently used
clothes to low-income school chil-
dren.
With this increase in need,
Clothes To Kids, 1059 N. Hercules
Ave., Clearwater, is in search of vol-
unteers to help serve children and
families.
With only four paid employees
on staff, Clothes To Kids relies on
its family of more than 200 active
volunteers to accomplish its mis-
sion.
Clothes To Kids offers a variety
of volunteer opportunities to match
almost any schedule and skill level
including:
Stock-room volunteers to as-
sist with sorting, tagging and re-
stocking clothing inventory;
Service volunteers to assist
families while they are shopping;
Administrative volunteers to
help with data entry, reception and
other light administrative duties;
and


Professionals who can offer
support on one of our board com-
mittees with marketing, fundrais-
ing, events and more.
Clothes To Kids is also always in
need of volunteer drivers who can
pick up large clothing donations.
In addition to the many adult vol-
unteer opportunities, Clothes To
Kids offers high school students a
wonderful venue to earn the learn-
ing service hours required for the
Bright Futures Scholarship Pro-
gram, CAS and other programs.
Each eligible child is permitted to
shop twice every twelve months for
a wardrobe to include:
Five new pair of socks and un-
derwear,
Four bottoms (shorts or
pants),
Five tops,
A jacket (in season),
A skirt or dress (for girls), and
A pair of shoes.
CTK's "store" is modeled after
department store and offers parents
and children a bright, friendly "shop-
ping" environment.

ST. PETERSBURG


Science for


preschoolers?


Workshops on tap


FOR THE PINELLAS NEWS

ST. PETERSBURG: Wide eyes
and big smiles are headed to the Sci-
ence Center of Pinellas County this
autumn. Toddlers 2-5 years of age
are ready to learn about their bod-
ies, furry animals, and much more.
"There is so much a toddler can
learn about science, so we are get-
ting out there and teaching them!"
says Madeline McNaughton, the ex-
ecutive director of the Science Cen-
ter of Pinellas County. "We hold
preschool classes each fall to help
toddlers learn that science is fun."
For more than 20 years, the cen-
ter has provided preschool science
classes in the community.
Classes are held for 45 minutes
each Thursday morning for seven
weeks.
Children learn about four-legged


friends and mysterious creatures of
the deep blue sea, and the creepy
critter class takes the "itsy bitsy
spider" out of the storybook and
into reality.
"The classes are popular with
both the adults and children," pre-
