The world celebrates the end of an era, the Bush Era. Barack Obama is inaugurated.
While the world was celebrating another leader, a St. Petersburg fireman took the lead
on a very interesting rescue. Remember Dudley, the pig who couldn't come all the way
home. Dudley will be remembered by all city firemen, but especially Brad Westphal, a
veteran who had never seen such a struggle from any other animal.
Matthew Keen also made his way into this year's exotic history when he became the
first to kayak down Florida's longest trail, 1,600 miles.

The largest sporting event of I
the year comes to Tampa Bay. Su-
per Bowl 43, a faceoff between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals graced
the bay area with busloads of tourists and a small boost in the city's quarterly numbers.
The Steelers won their 6th super bowl 27-23.


March

The plunging economy and the
increasing U.S. deficit send even the
most unlikely people on the search
for a job or even in search of a home.
The St. Petersburg homeless popu-
lation grew extensively over the last
year. Williams Park began to collect
more than its usual share of home-
less individuals. The city planned on
using money from the American Re-
covery and Reinvestment Act.
$133,000 was set aside for Emer-
gency Shelter Grant Program. Ac-
cording to Community Development
Department of Pinellas County they
would use it as a preventative meas-
ure to keep those off the streets and

manent housing for the homeless.

After an extreme delay, the switch was made
from analog television to digital television. Those
with rabbit ears could no longer tweak here and
there, or add tin foil to get a better signal. Digital TV
was switched over on June 12. Under the Digital
Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005, full-power
broadcasting of analog television in the United
States would have ceased after February 17, 2009.
To help U.S. consumers through the conversion,
the Act also established a federally-sponsored DTV
Converter Box Coupon Program.
An AirFrance flight disappears over the Atlantic

July

July marked the 40th anniversary of the
Apollo 11 landing. While celebrating a his-
toric landmark within the nation, St. Peters-
burg was busy protecting one of its historic
landmarks, the Friendship Trailbridge.
In Dec. 2008, the bridge was closed be-
cause the county felt it would collapse. A
committee voted to save the whole bridge in
mid July.
The bridge was converted in 1999 when

Florida becomes infested with pythons. Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission tried
desperately to get the growing population under control by setting up amnesty days for
owners to get rid of their snakes legally. The picture above shows a 17-foot python that
was found in the city of Lake Okeechobee. The FWC started looking into more strict
regulations for those who want to keep pythons when a two-year-old girl was killed by
an 8-foot snake in Sumter County.
At the hopes of trying to end someone's economic debt the Florida Lottery created
vending machines to entice the impulsive shopper to participate in a one and a million
chance to win more than a million dollars.

October

In October Mayor Rick Baker proposed that the city's old billboards be replaced with
digital ones. This proposal would get rid of a great many billboards and require the city
not to put up so many. Each business would simply buy a 30-second segment to flash
their advertisement and then the board would move on to the next ad.
The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg received a large rock that came from the artists
homeland. The city also wins a much deserved Compassion Award after countless acts
during CareFest 2009. 1,700 volunteers turned out to help the community.
U.S. president Barack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize "for his extraordinary ef-
forts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." Obama

December marked another great day in St. Petersburg when All Children's Hospital was rebuilt
across the street from the original building. The original grand opening was on December 2ndl; however,
due to construction issues the opening was delayed until Jan. 9, 2010. Almost 800,000 square feet, each
room was equipped to handle 3 visitors and a patient.

RICK BAKER GIVES LAST GIFT TO CITY AS MAYOR Dog of the Wee
Chuckie


PINELLAS MedImmune, the
manufacturer of monovalent 2009
H1N1 nasal spray vaccine, noti-
fied the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC) and
the Food & Drug Administration
(FDA) this week that 13 lots of
this vaccine had decreased in po-
tency slightly or were in danger of
falling below expected levels in
the coming week.
As such, the CDC and FDA


have announced a limited, volun-
tary, non-safety-related recall of
remaining unused product. Med-
Immune has notified providers
including the Pinellas County
Health Department that unused
vaccines from these lots which
had been received should be re-
turned. (The health department
is complying with the recall by re-
turning the unused vaccines in
the 13 lots.) The slight decrease


in vaccine potency will not affect
anyone who has already been vac-
cinated with any of the recalled
lots.
All children younger than 10
years old should get the recom-
mended two doses of 2009 H1N1
vaccine about a month apart. Par-
ents of children who have re-
ceived a first dose of Medimmune
nasal spray should still schedule
their child's second dose as rec-


ommended.
The 13 lots in the recall num-
ber about 4.7 million doses around
the nation. They were shipped to
CDC's distributor in October and
early November. Most of the
doses are believed to have already
been administered while fully po-
tent and within specifications.

(ROC) to an unpermitted person and improper caging.
Bavosa also received a warning for failing to keep
proper inventory of reptiles of concern.
In addition, officers issued warnings to two of his
employees for selling reptiles of concern to unper-
mitted people.
Undercover FWC investigators visited the store
Tuesday and inquired about purchasing pythons.
Bavosa told the officers that two pythons, a reticulated
python and a Burmese python, were available for sale
and that both snakes were dropped off to his store by
someone who did not want them anymore.
Bavosa asked the undercover investigator if he had
the proper permit to possess an ROC, and the inves-
tigator said he did not, but Bavosa sold the pythons to
him anyway for $250. The FWC turned the snakes Burmese python seized b
over to a permitted captive wildlife facility. The
snakes did not have the required microchips.
Under an executive order issued this month, ROCs
can be turned over to authorized reptile of concern
permit holders with no questions asked.
"We take ROC amnesty seriously," said FWC Chair-
man Rodney Barreto. "The owner of this pet store
acted irresponsibly when he failed to report to the
FWC that he accepted these unwanted pets in the first
place. Then, he let us down by selling the pythons un-
der the table to an unpermitted person."
Eugene Bessette, a representative from the state's
reptile industry, said, "The reptile industry has no
tolerance for anyone taking advantage of the FWC's
amnesty program by selling ROCs to unpermitted in-
dividuals. The vast majority of people with licenses
to possess these reptiles appreciate the importance of
abiding by Florida's regulations."
Reptiles of concern must be licensed by FWC's Reticulated python seized

The recreational harvest of greater amberjack from federal wa-
ters in the Gulf of Mexico will reopen on Jan. 1. Federal waters
extend beyond 9 nautical miles from shore in the Gulf off Florida.
The National Marine Fisheries Service closed the recreational
harvest of greater amberjack in these waters on Oct. 24 because
an established annual recreational harvest quota for greater am-
berjack in the Gulf had been met. Gulf state waters (within 9 nau-
tical miles from shore) were not closed and remain open to the
recreational harvest of greater amberjack.
Recreational anglers may keep one greater amberjack of at
least 30 inches fork length daily per person in Gulf waters off
Florida, and the fish must be landed in a whole condition.


Spotted seatrout season

beings Jan 1
The recreational harvest season for spotted seatrout will re-
open in South Florida on Jan. 1. Spotted seatrout harvest has been
closed since Nov. 1 in South Florida to help maintain an abundant
fishery.
The areas affected include Atlantic coast waters south of the
Flagler-Volusia county line and Gulf coastal waters south of a line
running due west from the westernmost point of Fred Howard
Park Causeway, which is 1.17 miles south of the Pinellas-Pasco
county line.
The maximum daily bag limit for spotted seatrout in these ar-
eas is four fish per person. In all Florida waters north and west
of these areas, the daily limit is five spotted seatrout per person.
The statewide slot limit for spotted seatrout is 15-20 inches to-
tal length. However, anglers may keep one spotted seatrout
larger than 20 inches as part of the daily bag limits.
Spotted seatrout may not be harvested by any multiple hooks
with live or dead natural bait, by snagging or by snatch hooking.
Spotted seatrout may be taken only with hook and line gear and
cast nets and must be landed in a whole condition.
The harvest of spotted seatrout will close during the month of
February in northeast and northwest Florida waters.

Small plane crashes on Christmas Eve in St. Petersburg
ST. PETERSBURG On December
24th, at 1:01 pm, units from St. Peters-
burg Fire & Rescue responded to an air-
plane crash on the corner of Columbus
Way S and Desoto Way S.
A single-engine plane was forced to
make an emergency landing this afternoon
on St. Petersburg Country Club's Golf
course. The pilot, William Gibson 47, of St.
Petersburg, was towing a banner for -
"Billy's Crab Shack" when the plane's en-
gine lost power.
The plane, a Bellanca Citabria single-
engine, fixed-wing aircraft with one pilot
and no passengers, landed on the golf
course then crashed into a palm tree,
sheering off the plane's right wing. Para-
medics examined the pilot for injuries but
found none. "I thought I was going to die" photo courtesy of St. Petersburg Fire Department
said Gibson. Lime green single engine plane sits with a broken wing on the corner of
Columbus Way and Desoto Way in St. Petersburg.

Memorable Moments in Sports

TAMPA BAY BUCS

HAVE A ROUGH YEAR


This was obviously a rebuilding year for the
Bucs, with a new coach and a number of quarterback
changes, the team just wasn't able to get it together
in time. As of publication the team was 2-13 for the
regular season, with no hopes of making it to post-
season. However, they did arrive as a team when it
counted. This past weekend the New Orleans Saints
lost 20-17 against one of the worst teams in the
league. NFL officials have said that teams that have
been the worst in their division one year, have be-
come the best in the season to follow.

Prep Time: 25 min
Total Time: 1 hour 25 min
Makes: 36 appetizers
INGREDIENTS
4 spinach-flavored or plain flour tortillas, 8
to 10 inches in diameter
1/2 cup bean dip
1/2 cup nacho cheese dip
3 to 4 tablespoons chopped green onions
or chopped fresh cilantro
DIRECTIONS
1. Spread each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons
bean dip and 2 tablespoons cheese dip. Sprinkle
each with onions.
2. Tightly roll up tortillas; wrap individually in
plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour but no
longer than 24 hours. To serve, cut off ends from
each roll and discard. Cut rolls into 1/2- to 3/4-
inch slices. Secure with toothpicks if desired.
Substitution:
You can use jalapeiio-flavored process cheese
sauce instead of the nacho cheese dip.
Special Touch:
Use two colors of tortillas to make the pinwheels,

then arrange them on a
holiday platter. Look for
tomato-flavored tortillas
for a red-orange color.
Pierce each pinwheel with
a frilly toothpick, and add
some fresh cilantro sprigs to the arrangement.
Success:
These tasty morsels are easy to tote. You can take
them to your destination before cutting, or go
ahead and cut them and arrange on a platter;
cover tightly with plastic wrap. Garnish just before
serving.

Not as bad as the Tampa Bay
Bucs, but not as good as their pre-
vious year, the Tampa Bay Rays had a rollercoaster of a season. Between battling key
rivals like Boston and dealing with an array of injuries the Rays ended the season with
84-78. The Rays finished 3rd in the AL East. Carl Crawford stole 6 bases in one game
and became the first Rays player to be the MVP of the allstart game after he caught a
high fly ball to save the American team. Evan Longoria is only the 9th player to have
hit 30 plus homeruns, 40 doubles, and all before he was 24.

ing 26 goals compared to the 13 scores
