SHS band plans to kick it up

'Kickin' the Kids to Macy's' is next major fundraiser on April 17


By BOB McCLURE


SEMINOLE Boosters of the Seminole High
School marching band hope to kick up the effort
to send band members to the Macy's Thanksgiv-
ing Day Parade in New York City on April 17.
That's when the group will hold a fundraiser
called "Kickin' the Kids to Macy's" at Jim Graden's
Cardio Karate Center, 9112 Seminole Blvd., 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.
The band and color guard will perform during
the four-hour event in the parking lot while staff
at Graden's business will offer a variety of 30-
minute self-defense classes inside. The cost for
each will be a minimum donation of $10.
Donations also will be accepted during the
band's performances outside.
The effort is one of many in the next few

months designed to raise close to $300,000 to
send the band to the Nov. 25 parade.
"It's slow going," said Roger Fox, corporate
chairman of the band boosters. "It's a little
tougher now (than in past years). I think it will all
come together as we progress."
The class schedule at Graden's is:

PARC enriches the lives

of 700 participants daily


By BOB McCLURE

For about 700 developmentally-
challenged Pinellas County residents,
their lives are a little bit better each
day thanks to the work of PARC.
The Pinellas Association for Re-
tarded Children, the only onsite early
intervention program in the county,
not only targets youngsters with de-
velopmental disabilities, it maintains
a series of services that its partici-
pants can use for the rest of their
lives.
PARC provides services for about
400 participants daily on a 9 1/2-
acre campus at 3100 75th St. N. An-
other 300 are provided with services
out in the community.
All of this is accomplished on a


current budget of $16 million that is
funded through state and federal
Medicaid funds, grants and dona-
tions.
Locally, the Pinellas County Juve-
nile Welfare Board and the United
Way play heavily in the funding of
the facility's preschool operation.
"We are truly blessed to have the
Juvenile Welfare Board and the Unit-
ed Way," said Maxine Duke, assis-
tant vice president of children's
services. 'We're struggling but we're
grateful for the people that help out."
Next year, due to cuts in funding,
the organization will operate on a
budget of about 6 percent less. Do-
nation levels are getting tougher to

SEMINOLE The first phase of
a habitat park at the Seminole
campus of St. Petersburg College
is under construction.
Workers from A.D. Morgan
Corp. of Tampa broke ground
last week on the project that will
include a teaching pavilion,
boardwalk and a floating dock in
a pond.
Cost of the construction is
$513,777.
According to SPC engineer Jon
White, the project will be com-
plete in mid-August.
The pavilion, which will be 6
feet wide, will be large enough for
50 students.
The floating dock will feature a
water sampling station for envi-
ronmental classes.

Oil drilling protest

Close to 100 people were on hand March 31 to protest a town hall
meeting by former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich at the
Renaissance Vinoy Hotel in downtown St. Petersburg. Gingrich spoke on
the topic of the benefits offshore oil exploration will bring to the Florida
economy. Those against oil drilling lined the street across from the hotel
with a variety of anti-oil drilling signs.

Manatee deaths exceed previous record


Biologists with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute
have documented 431 manatee carcass-
es in state waters so far in 2010.
This preliminary data, compiled
through March 19, indicates that in just
three months, the number of manatee
deaths has exceeded the highest num-
ber on record for an entire calendar
year, which was 429 in 2009. The cause
of death for the majority of these ani-
mals is cold stress.
The "cold-stress" category accounts
for 222 documented manatee carcasses;
however, it is likely the cold tempera-
tures also contributed to many of the
108 deaths in the "undetermined" cate-
gory and the 64 deaths in the "unrecov-
ered" category.


Manatee deaths are categorized as
"undetermined" when biologists are not
able to confirm the cause of death, often
because the carcasses are too badly de-
composed. The "unrecovered" category
includes carcasses that are unavailable
to scientists, such as when carcasses
are found in remote locations.
Unfortunately, the number of recov-
ered carcasses for this year continues to
be well above long-term averages. As the
rate of cold-related deaths diminishes,
FWC staff will begin to focus on deter-
mining the long-term implications for
the manatee population, a process that
could take several years.
The period of prolonged cold weather
earlier this year exposed manatees in
Florida to colder than normal water
temperatures. Exposure to low tempera-

tures over a period of time can cause a
condition called "manatee cold-stress
syndrome," which can result in death.
'The unprecedented rate of mortality
this year is of great concern," said Gil
McRae, FWRI director. "FWC staff, part-
ners and volunteers have done a
tremendous job working around the
clock for weeks recovering carcasses
and conducting rescues throughout
Florida."
Since the cold weather conditions
began to affect Florida, FWC staff and
conservation partners have rescued 48
manatees from across the state and
continue to respond to reports of dis-
tressed manatees.

February's unemployment rates show glimmer of hope


By SUZETTE PORTER
A few more Floridians had jobs in February than the
month past.
In a report released March 26, state officials pointed out
that ray of sunshine, saying the state's total nonagricultural
employment in February was up by 26,300 jobs. February
2010 also is the first time since November 2007 that the
over the month change in the number of people with jobs
was positive.
However, not all the news from the state was good. Offi-
cials said February's unemployment rate is higher than any
recorded during the 1973-1975 recession. Florida's season-
ally adjusted unemployment rate for the month was 12.2
percent, up 0.2 percent from January.
The state's unemployment remains higher than the na-
tional average of 9.7 percent.
"February's unemployment rate underscores the critical
importance of our ongoing efforts to support Florida's fami-
lies and businesses during these challenging times," said
Agency for Workforce Innovation Director Cynthia R. Loren-
zo. "While the unemployment rate is a lagging indicator of
economic recovery, last month's positive job growth of
26,300 jobs and a 300 percent reduction in the number of

layoff notices since the peak last May are both encouraging
signs of an improving economy."
The latest figures also showed a bit of good news for Pinel-
las County where the unemployment rate fell slightly from
12.9 percent in January to 12.6 percent in February. Ac-
cording to the report, 1,085 more Pinellas County residents
had jobs in February than the previous month.
For the metropolitan statistical area of Tampa-St. Peters-
burg-Clearwater, which includes the counties of Hernando,
Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas, February's unemployment
rate was 13.1, the same rate as January, which earned it a
ranking of No. 9 statewide.
Hernando County, which is a part of the local MSA, con-
tinued to have the second highest unemployment rate in the
state at 15.6 percent, which was down from 15.7 in Janu-
ary. Flagler County continues to hold the No. 1 spot with an
unemployment rate of 17 percent, down from 17.1 in Janu-
ary.
Liberty County has the lowest unemployment in the state
with a rate of 7.5 percent, followed by Monroe County with 8

percent, Leon County with 8.6 percent and Alachua County
with 8.8 percent. According to state officials, many of the
counties with the lowest unemployment rates are those with
relatively high proportions of government workers.
In total, 55 counties had double-digit unemployment rates
in February, which was down from 58 in January.
Construction continues to be the industry hardest hit by
the economy. Construction jobs account for a loss of 73,600
jobs statewide in February. Other industries losing jobs in
2010 include trade, transportation and utilities.
Only two industries showed positive job growth so far this
year: private education and health services. State officials
said most of the job increases are due to health care and so-
cial assistance, which gained nearly 20,000 jobs in Febru-
ary. Private education added another 4,000 jobs to last
month's report.

Dubov delivers preliminary tax figures


By BOB McCLURE

REDINGTON BEACH As expected, ap-
praised values of homes on the beaches will
decline steadily again this year, forcing town
leaders to find different ways to balance their
budgets.
Pinellas County Tax Appraiser Pam Dubov
was the messenger March 31 at the monthly
meeting of the Barrier Islands Governmental
Council in Redington Beach and delivered
news most expected.
"I don't have good news as to where the val-
ues are going," she said. "In 2009, sales were
down and with it the values. When values
drop, caps drop with it."
Appraised values affect the amount of ad
valorem tax the county collects, which in turn
affects the amount of money each community
on the beach receives.
"It's really early to give these figures and
they could go plus or minus 2 percent, in ei-
ther direction," Dubov said.
Dubov's projected ad valorem tax base for
some area towns and cities:
Belleair Beach, down 6 percent from last
year.
Belleair Shore, down 5 percent.
Clearwater, down 11 percent.
Indian Rock Beach, down 8.5 percent.
Indian Shores, down 11.5 percent.
Madeira Beach, down 11 percent.
North Redington Beach, down 10 percent.
Redington Beach, down 7 percent.
Redington Shores, down 10 percent.
St. Pete Beach, down 10 percent.
Seminole, 12 percent.
Treasure Island, down 10 percent.


"I'm not really (surprised)," said Madeira
Beach city manager W.D. Higginbotham. 'We
had heard 13 percent initially, which would
have been a decrease of $250,000. So this is
somewhat of an improvement."
Higginbotham said the 10 percent decrease
was in the ballpark and city leaders would dis-
cuss areas to be cut at future meetings.
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning said
the 10 percent his city is projected to lose is
not a surprise.
"No, that's about what we were thinking,"
Minning said. "We're hopeful, because of the
surplus we experienced last year, that we can
apply (that money) toward this year (2011)."
Minning said the 10 percent drop in ad val-
orem revenue equates into about $300,000 to
$350,000.
Under Save Our Homes, homeowners in
Florida have a tax cap of 3 percent per year on
homesteaded property and 10 percent on non-
homesteaded property. Under a proposal on
the November ballot, the non-homesteaded
cap would drop to 5 percent, eliminating an
estimated $100 million from city coffers.
"As long as the cap is 3 percent (for home-
steaded property) and 10 percent for non-
homesteaded I really believe it's going to hurt
our economy in Florida," said Dubov. "I know
a lot of people aren't going to agree with me,
but I favor reduction of the cap for non-home-
steaded property from 10 percent to 5 percent.
In some ways it restores some level of fairness
to our system."
Dubov said Pinellas homeowners who live
out of state are constantly complaining about
the tax code and how it discriminates against
out-of-state property owners.

Seminole Sound Spectacular.
Raffled off tickets are $5 each or three for
$10.
Boosters also are putting together a golf
tournament May 6 at the Bayou Club.
The format is a four-player team scramble
and the entry fee is $99, which includes a
barbecue lunch and silent auction.
Tournament organizers are seeking a tour-
nament sponsor ($5,000), a lunch sponsor
($2,500), and gold sponsors ($500), as well as
those who would like to donate items for the
silent auction.
Prizes will be awarded for longest drive,
longest putt, closest to the pin and five holes-
in-one one of which will be worth $1 mil-
lion.
Deadline to enter is May 3.
For further information, call tournament
director Laura Shortway at 368-3846 or e-
mail lshortway@hotmail.com.
Plans also are under way for a cow patty
bingo event some time in June. Boosters will
be selling squares on a cow pasture. When
all of the squares are sold, a well-fed cow will
be turned loose in the pasture. The square
where it leaves its patty will be the winner.


Details are still being worked out but ten-
tative plans call for the winner to receive a
cash prize from the sale of the tickets.
The boosters also are getting a lot of sup-
port from area businesses.
They include:
Kilwiin's Chocolates, Fudge and Icrea
Cream at John's Pass Village is donating 15
percent of all sales to the effort.
Portobello Barbers, at Park Boulevard
and 131st Street, is donating a percentage of
its sales.
Village Inn, Walsingham and 131st
Street, is donating 15 percent of its proceeds
from sales on May 30, 5 to 9 p.m.
Joto's Pizza, 13050 Park Blvd., is con-
tributing 15 percent of sales on April 27.
Crabby Bill's, 401 Gulf Blvd., Indian
Rocks Beach, is donating 20 percent of sales
from parties wearing Seminole band shirts
on April 19.

PARC, from page 1 A


meet and fundraising in general is more diffi-
cult. All sizes of donations help out.
"It's the little things that matter. It all adds
up," said Kelli Caputo, director of communica-
tions for PARC. "If everybody in the community
does it, it's a snowball effect."
Last year, PARC benefited from $1.3 million
in grants but $750,000 was a one-time only
award from the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency that was used to upgrade its 48-
unit apartment building to Category-5
hurricane levels.
"If we can get between $350,000 and
$400,000, or about 5 percent (of the budget) in
grants, we consider it a good year," said
Michael Doyle, director of grants management.
Among the items topping a wish list is high-
powered walkie-talkies for PARC's van drivers,
a soft-play surface for an outdoor recreation
area and new waterproof mattresses for the
apartments and cottages.
In addition to grants, additional support
comes from the League to Aid Retarded Chil-
dren, a group of about 40 volunteers that rais-
es money for PARC.
"Every penny we raise goes to PARC," said
Thelma Gilbert, a 40-year volunteer whose son
is a participant in the adult services at PARC.
"I love (PARC). I absolutely love the children."
The facility dates back to the days when it
was a preschool program known as the Peter
Pan School for Retarded Children, which was
later renamed by PARC founder Bert Muller.
Muller, who died March 22, slowly built
PARC into one of the state's largest facilities for
the disabled, offering a number of services for
all ages.


In the preschool Discovery Learning Center,
children with developmental disabilities and
those at-risk are grouped by development
stage as opposed to age. Typical teaching ra-
tios are five children per employee.
All participants have an individual educa-
tion program geared for their specific needs,
Caputo said.
PARC's other programs include a fine arts
studio and gallery, adult achievement technol-
ogy center, a library, the Fifth Avenue Jewel-
ers, an area where necklaces and bracelets
made by the participants are sold; the PARC
Day Spa, a senior center and the cultural arts
center.
There also is horticultural programs under
way that allows participants to grow vegetables
and an indoor gym that was recently opened.
The gym features a special soft floor that was
provided by Wachovia and Wells Fargo banks,
and Palm Harbor-based Sport Court of Tampa
Bay.
One of the most visible parts of the facility is
PARC Center Industries where PARC partici-
pants assemble, pack and ship items for vari-
ous vendors. PCI employs over 200 individuals
with developmental disabilities who are sup-
ported by production supervisors, nondisabled
assembly workers, a quality control staff and
truck drivers.
One of its largest clients is BIC Graphics.
'The whole purpose (at PARC) is indepen-
dence," said Caputo, "to take charge and feel
confident out in the community."
Those that are able are placed in outside
employment, which is monitored and aided by
PARC personnel.

Lost dog


Photo by bUb IVIcULUR-
When Mercedes Wilis of Seminole lost Tootsie Pop, a 6-pound, long-haired, female Chihuahua on March 4 near Park Boulevard and Oakhurst Road, she looked everywhere with no success. She
even visited a psychic who told her the dog was probably within two miles of where she lived. So, with that in mind, she purchased the above billboard space on Park Boulevard to alert residents.
Anyone who may have seen the brown and tan dog, should call 455-6080.

- Police beat


Store employee foils
jewelry thief
CLEARWATER A store employee and a
palm tree helped prevent a would-be jewelry
thief from getting away from the scene of the
crime.
According to a report from the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office, Michael Basilotto, 43,
of Northport, went to the International Dia-
mond Center, 3696 Ulmerton Road in unincor-
porated Clearwater about 11:45 a.m. on
March 31.
Basilotto, who was dressed in scrubs and a
white lab jacket, identified himself as a doctor,
the report said.
Basilotto was shopping for diamond rings
and asked to see the clarity of the diamonds
outdoors in the sunlight, the report said. A
store employee, Timothy Hulfish, 57, of St. Pe-
tersburg, agreed and accompanied Basilotto


outside where he showed the rings one-by-one
as Basilotto put them on his fingers to check
for clarity.
Basilotto then struck Hulfish in the shoul-
der and ran with the three rings in hand.
Hulfish chased Basilotto to his vehicle where
the two struggled inside the car as Hulfish
tried to keep Basilotto from getting away, the
report said.
Basilotto pulled out of the parking space
and crashed into a palm tree in front of the
Executive Inn, 3580 Ulmerton Road.
Deputies responded to the scene and Basilot-
to was arrested.
Hulfish was transported to St. Anthony's
Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening
injuries suffered during the crash.
Deputies determined that the Cadillac
Basilotto was driving had been stolen from
Sarasota County. Basilotto was charged with
strong-armed robbery; two counts grand


theft (one for the rings and one for the car);
aggravated battery with a deadly weapon;
and resisting a merchant. He was being held
in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of
$150,000 bond.
The rings, valued at $277,000, were recov-
ered and returned to the International Dia-
mond Center.

Clearwater man arrested
in Seminole stabbing
SEMINOLE A Clearwater man was ar-
rested Sunday, April 4, in connection with
an early morning stabbing that took place
in Seminole.
According to the report from the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office, Jeffrey Marshall
Fatkin, 22, a transient, was stabbed sever-
al times during an argument with Dane
Vincent Carleton, 22. Fatkin is recovering


at St. Joseph's in Tampa, the report said.
Carleton was charged with battery with a
deadly weapon. He was booked into the
Pinellas County Jail where he remained in
lieu of $10,000 bond.
According to responding deputies, Fatkin
and a couple of his friends reportedly met
with Carleton about 2:30 a.m. near 92nd
Terrace and 86th Way North in Seminole.
An argument began about an unpaid debt
and at some point, the victim was stabbed
several times, allegedly by Carleton, who
fled the scene, the report said.
Sheriffs K-9 tracked from the scene and
found Carleton in the front yard of a home
a few blocks away on 92nd Terrace where
he was arrested without further incident.
The report said a knife, described as a
pocketknife, was allegedly found in Car-
leton's possession.
The investigation continues.

Leave the library alone


The Clearwater City Council flirted with a
controversial plan to demolish City Hall and
move city government functions into one-third
of the floor space at the downtown library.
Such a proposal is fraught with negative
consequences.
City Hall is the symbol and center of city
government. Relocating functions to the li-
brary may send the message to residents and
visitors that the city does not place a premium
on its image or role in Clearwater. A resident
put it aptly: When city hall goes, a part of the
city goes with it.
Furthermore, the library serves an impor-
tant role in the city from both economic and
cultural standpoints. The library brings peo-
ple downtown and creates activities for chil-
dren and adults through programs. It
stimulates community pride and is in a per-
fect location for residents and visitors; it's
easy to find and offers a beautiful view of the
Intracoastal Waterway. In a sense, it's a
showcase, and all its space is being used, ac-
cording to the director.
If the City Council decided to allow its staff
to occupy some of the offices, would they
eventually be tempted to take up more space
in the building?
In addition, groups that support and pro-
mote the library would probably fume if the li-
brary spaces were shared with other city
services.
Granted, city officials are facing tough bud-
get decisions, but moving city operations to
the library smacks of robbing Peter to pay
Paul.

Swimmers who enjoy the Southwest Pool in
Largo can breathe easier; city officials don't


plan to close it.
Largo officials had considered closing the
pool as an option in helping to cut $3.5 mil-
lion from the proposed city budget for the
next fiscal year.
That spurred protests from city residents
who are involved in organized swimming and
diving programs and casual swimmers.
At a March 29 meeting, several people who
don't live in Largo also raved about the
Olympics-sized pool. A Sarasota swim team
director pointed out that her group competes
several times a year in events at the pool,
spending money at area hotels and restau-
rants.
Many citizens also suggested that the city
consider forming a task force to examine
ways to better market the pool and increase
usage. That suggestion has merit, especially
since so many residents and others have
shown strong support for programs offered at
the pool and keeping it open year-round.
That said, city commissioners face tough
budget choices again this year, and any plan
to cut services, whether they are in public
safety, recreation or cultural activities, will
anger some constituents.
Proposed increases in users' fees, though,
make sense. Residents who don't use certain
programs shouldn't be asked to subsidize the
costs of specific programs that they can't or
will not use.
Raising recreation fees might cause some
grumbling among participants in the pro-
grams affected, but it's a reasonable option
combined with other measures, such as freez-
ing personnel positions and wages, to dealing
with budget shortfalls.
Something has to give.

Poised for a financial disaster
Re: "Give President Obama a chance," March
25
Editor:
The truth is that the government does not
run any programs as effectively as a private
company. Government overspends and has us
positioned to default on our debt and poised
for a financial disaster that is unprecedented
in our history. You all see it coming. Most just
can't believe it will really happen.
The Democrats continue to point at FDR as
an example but FDR started the now bank-
rupt Social Security program and the Democ-
rats have continued to change the laws over
the years to assure its bankruptcy.
We are going to save money by now finding
fraud in Medicare!
(Apparently we weren't looking for it be-
fore?).
If the definition of insanity is "continue to do
the same thing and expect the results to
change" then why in the world would we the
people entrust another huge sector of our
economy to a group of people that have driven
every social program to bankruptcy on the
backs of its citizens?
I know why. The last line in the Reader's
Forum letter I read said it all, "where's my
stimulus check?"

FRLA opposes oil exploration
Editor:
The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Associ-
ation is closely monitoring legislation filed by
both the Florida Senate and the Florida House
of Representatives on the issue of oil and gas
exploration in the Gulf of Mexico.
Although it appears unlikely that offshore
drilling will be passed into law this year, FRLA
is prepared to be actively engaged should the
measure be brought before the Florida Legisla-
ture in the final weeks of the session.
Florida's hospitality industry depends upon
maintaining pristine ecological systems for
tourism and travel. Our state's economic sta-
bility depends on a strong tourism base of
which the hospitality industry is a foundation.
In 2008, Florida's tourism industry generat-
ed $65.2 billion in direct economic impact and
$3.9 billion in tax revenue. With more than
84.5 million visitors annually, there are more
than 1.5 million visitors in Florida on any
given day. It is the state's largest private em-
ployer with more than one million Floridians
directly employed, generating a payroll of $16
billion.
While the issue has been discussed over re-
cent months in local town hall meetings and


forums, many questions still remain. We
strongly encourage our elected officials to take
a measured and thoughtful approach in order
to ensure that a fair and accurate assessment
of the facts is openly debated.
We ask members of our association who op-
pose oil and gas exploration in the Gulf of
Mexico to contact their local senators and rep-
resentatives within the next two weeks to let
them know we will not support any measure
that would be detrimental to Florida's tourism
and hospitality industry.

Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association

Who owns the beach?
Editor:
Caddy's on Sunset Beach has restricted the
rights of individuals to the legally allowed uses
of the public beach. New signs posted on the
beach in front of Caddy's mandate no coolers
or alcoholic beverages (unless purchased from
Caddy's) on the beach adjacent to Caddy's.
The owner has stated he owns the beach and
can make his own rules.
Regardless if the restrictions are a good idea
considering the large crowds at Caddy's, my
minimal understanding of Florida law is that
no private citizen can restrict the public use of
the beaches. I am not sure what their re-
course is if you don't play by Caddy's new
beach rules, but most likely detractors will not
be welcome "inside" Caddy's. I personally
think it is insulting that I can legally walk on
the beach with a (plastic) glass of wine or a
beer in hand, but only until I walk in front of
Caddy's.

Supports cafe operator
Editor:
When I was visiting in Largo the last few
months I had the pleasure of attending the li-
brary and having a break at the Bookmark
Cafe. I wish to add my comments about the
contract that was not renewed with Dalal
Mansour. I was able to talk to her about the
problems that she was having with the city. All
comments about the quality of service or how
she runs the cafe aside, it remains that she
does abide by the health laws, pays the rent
and makes a living. The fact that she is suc-
cessful, pays the high rent and makes a profit
speaks for itself. Her customers are those who
keep her in business and they vote every day
by keeping her profitable. The city is quite
wrong in its approach to terminate a proven
success to seek a new and unknown operator.

The main reason (and
there are several) I never be-
came a highly paid executive
was that I'm no good at
managing people. To rise in
the business world, sooner
or later you have to super-
vise other employees, even if
it's just one or two of them.
And that, to me, is a royal
pain.
For one thing, I'm not very
bright. To be a competent
manager you should know
more than the people you're
managing. That's asking a
lot. Most of us aren't even
sure we know how to do our
own work, let alone direct
the efforts of those beneath
us.
The first time I became a
manager was in the U.S.
Navy. My ship was sent to
the Korean war zone. I was
the second-ranking ra-
dioman aboard. The top guy
was a reserve radioman
chief who had been activat-
ed for the Korea trip. He
hadn't seen active duty for
five years; his skills were
rusty. So on a daily basis, I
was the top dog.
I didn't want to be. I had
no desire to prepare the
watch schedules, supervise
the ten operators and mes-
sengers, and enforce the
dozens of petty rules. All I
wanted to do, from the get-
go, was to stand my watch,
copy hours of Morse code
messages, and then hit the
sack. I did a lousy job of
running the radio shack. I
was finally happy to turn
most of the housekeeping
over to a meticulous subor-
dinate who loved to keep
things ship-shape.
My next management post
was running a small public
relations office at a college. I
supervised two women. One
was a writer named Tess.
The other was a secretary,


fDriver's Seat
Bob Driver


Ruth, who hated Tess's
guts. In addition to acting as
a referee, I had to wrestle
with Tess's neurosis. She
was incapable of working on
more than one project at a
time. Multi-tasking was out
of the question. With half a
dozen assignments ap-
proaching deadline, Tess
would fixate on one per day,
and say bugger-all to the
others. I did my best to en-
courage her to distribute her
efforts for, say, an hour at a
time per project, but she
wouldn't budge. So I budged
myself on to another depart-
ment.
And so on. My happiest
employment has been in
jobs that did not require me
to tell other people what to
do or how to do it. I like to
write or edit stuff news re-
leases, brochures, profiles,
magazine articles, columns,
editorials, history books, ad-
vertisements. Words are so
much easier to deal with
than people. Words don't
weep, or curse at you.
Another burden of being a
manager and achieving ex-
ecutive success is the end-
less meetings. Although
e-mail, texting and twitter-
ing may have reduced the
number of sit-downs re-
quired in a business day, no
one has discovered how to
eliminate the need for meet-
ings. How I have loathed
them. So much talking, so
little accomplished.
To this day, I genuinely
admire capable managers.
They're about ten percent of
the managerial crop, from
what I can see. They enjoy


responsibility. They view
their underlings as human
beings who can profit from
help and guidance, rather
than being dominated or
bossed around. Good man-
agers would rather praise
than criticize. Instead of dic-
tating, they listen. They are
often gifted in psychology.
On many days, they are
more of a guidance coun-
selor than a boss.
From what I read about
the modern workplace, a
principal requirement for
today's managers is that
they wear administrative
handcuffs. That is, they find
it virtually impossible to fire
anyone. If an employee is
seen having sex on his/her
desk with a security guard,
the employee will probably
get the heave-ho. Or if he
steals corporate files and
sells them to Iran, he is a
goner. But if the worker is
merely incompetent, subor-
dinate, lazy, stupid, a liar,
defiant, slanderous and un-
productive, his job may still
be safe if he is a member of
a minority (and almost any
minority will do), if he has
any sort of illness that might
be traced to his job, if a su-
pervisor has made the
slightest comment that
might be considered a sexu-
al, religious or ethnic ha-
rassment, and/or if the
employee has the funds to
hire one of the many smart,
slick lawyers who stand
ready to do battle on behalf
of oppressed workers. But I
could be mistaken on all of
this.
It's conceivable that every-
one who reads this column
has been either a superb
employee or a first-rate
manager. If so, my congrats
go to you.

You would think the cur-
rent format being used to
decide a national champi-
on in men's college basket-
ball would suffice.
America's premier sport-
ing event now features 65
of the nation's 342 NCAA
Division I teams. It seems
like plenty to me and many
other people concur.
But the NCAA doesn't
agree with us.
With expanded dollar
signs in its eyes, the NCAA
is considering growing the
Big Dance to 96 teams a
48 percent increase over
the current format.
So, assuming this hap-
pens, we can look forward
to seeing an even more
boring first round with
such household names as
Northern Colorado, Ap-
palachian State, Wiscon-
sin-Green Bay and College
of Charleston.

ment could be expanded to
96 with the top 32 teams
receiving first-round byes.
The proposal would basi-
cally create an additional
round of games that would
cut the field to 64 after the
first round. Once down to
64, the current format
would pick up.
The obvious question is
why. Why does the NCAA
need to do this?
Like everything else in
life it all comes down to
money. The NCAA depends
on the tournament for 90
percent of its annual rev-
enue, which is a fairly im-
pressive chunk of change.
It is currently in the
10th year of a 13-year con-
tract with CBS that pays
the NCAA a paltry $6 bil-


(CoelvasWc


lion. The final year of the
deal pays the NCAA a cool
$750 million.
So why would the NCAA
want a bigger tournament
and more money?
Because it can. NCAA of-
ficials have an out clause
in the deal with CBS after
this season, which it could
exercise.
Should that happen and
the tournament expand,
ESPN would likely pick up
the tournament for you
guessed it a bucket load
of additional money.
Basketball is a great
game and March Madness
just might be the best
sporting event in the coun-
try.

and join the excitement.

teams like West Virginia or
Kentucky based on a previ-
ous residence.
Others just depend on
random luck.
But it wasn't random
luck that got Butler to this
year's NCAA finals. The
Bulldogs are a well-
coached team that rode a
tough defense into the
Monday night champi-
onship game with Duke
that nobody would have
dared to predict back on
March 14 when the tour-
nament field was an-
nounced.
Butler, an Indianapolis
school with only 4,000 stu-
dents, consistently plays
well in the tournament and
is proof to what hard work
and good recruiting can do.
As far as changing the
tournament format, I say
keep the current 65-team
system the way it is. It
works well and doesn't
need to be fixed.

Sustainability group promotes


location of recycling drop-off


Beacon, April 8, 2010


SEMINOLE Seminole Goes Green, a local
group promoting environmental sustainability,
used the recent Pow Wow Festival parade to
promote the Seminole water tower park as a
drop-off site for recyclable items.
The group constructed a float that used a 9-
foot high replica of the Seminole water tower.
Flanked by green-shirted young people dis-
tributing parade favors, the float was a big hit
with spectators.
"It doesn't look as sharp as the real tower,"
said Patricia Plantamura, a member of Semi-
nole Goes Green, "but the crowds were very
pleased with it."
The group constructed the replica tank with
painted shower curtains and pool noodles. Like
the real tower, it was adorned with images of
seabirds.
The real 110-foot, 3 million gallon tower,
originally called the Oakhurst Tank, was built
in 1958. It was painted with giant pelicans and
cranes in 2000 by artist Tom Stovall.
While Stovall's design was met with mixed
reactions, Seminole residents have come to
agree that it provides an easily recognizable

landmark. It can be seen up to 10 miles from
shore.
The Pinellas County Utilities property at the
base of the tower was recently landscaped
and named 'The Green."
The Green, located at 113th Street, south of
Park Boulevard, has receptacles for steel and
aluminum cans, phone books, newspapers,
corrugated cardboard, narrow-neck plastic
bottles and used cooking oil.

County's Eagle Lake Park opens, despite budget cuts


By WAYNE AYERS

LARGO Long known for its outstanding public parks, Pinel-
las County has added another jewel to the crown with the
opening of Eagle Lake Park in Largo.
The park land was acquired from the Taylor family, early pio-
neers in the county, and had been used in the past for cattle
grazing and citrus groves. Publicity on the park describes it as
"a slice of natural tranquility in the midst of urban life."
A crowd of well-wishers was on hand Tuesday morning as
County Commission Chair Karen Williams Seel "cut the vine" to
officially open the park. Seel praised the park's natural beauty
and noted its heritage. Recognizing members of the pioneer
Taylor, Hancock and Carter families who had been involved
with the property, Seel said, "I know (the citizens) will love it
just as much as they did."
Foxes, gopher tortoises and numerous species of birds in-
habit the area, Seel said, and remains of the original citrus
groves can still be spotted. To emphasize the point, complimen-
tary grapefruit grown on the property were passed out following
the ceremony.
Amenities are plentiful on the 163-acre site, which is at 1800
Keene Road. They include 2,000 feet of boardwalks over wet-


rnoto uy IJMI'JU T YMT ro
In place of a traditional ribbon cutting, local officials cut a vine
to officially open Eagle Lake Park March 30 in Largo.
lands, a paved recreation trail, dog park, playground, and six
picnic shelters. Funds for the $8 million investment in park im-
provements came primarily from the Penny for Pinellas sales
tax.
Paul Cozzie, the county's director of culture, education and
leisure, explained afterwards how the county could afford to


operate the new park in the face of deep budget cuts.
Deficits the past two years have forced the county to aban-
don the old model of having staff at every park, "and to rethink
the way we do business," Cozzie said
Nowadays, he said, work crews rotate among several parks.
'That creates more efficiency and allows us to take care of
basic services even in the face of budget cuts," he said.
Also, Cozzie said the county is relying more on volunteers to
do jobs such as picking up litter and assisting with mainte-
nance. The volunteer staff "is integral to keeping our parks at-
tractive," he said.
Citizens on hand for the grand opening appeared delighted
with the park's natural features, and saw little problem with
the budget issues.
George Bremer of Largo said he was impressed with how the
park "keeps nature as it was." He said the amenities should
appeal to people of all ages who want to go out and enjoy na-
ture.
"It's a great use of tax money," Bremer added.
Heath Watson of Largo said his family is excited "to have a
really nice park that emphasizes nature." Andrea Watson said
their daughters Lanie (age 6) and Elley (age 4) are looking for-
ward to visiting the playground.

Diabetes fails to slow down former Miss America


By MELISSA LATTMAN
SEMINOLE At age 19, when she was diagnosed with Type
I diabetes, Nicole Johnson was told she could not have a ca-
reer or a baby.
The now 36-year-old mother of a 4-year-old daughter and
Miss America 1999 said she has a wonderful life, which has
flown in the face of everything she was told when she was di-
agnosed with diabetes as a college student.
"Nothing has to limit you. You can have a wonderful life.
You can be a mother. You can be accomplished. You can trav-
el. There are no limits if you are willing to work at it," Johnson
said.
Living with diabetes for Johnson means wearing an insulin
pump and a continuous glucose sensor. She pricks her finger
four to eight times a day. She watches what she eats and she
remains active.
Everything Johnson does relates to diabetes, she said. In
addition to school Johnson works at the University of South

Florida. She writes for various diabetes publications. She
serves on the American Diabetes Association board in Tampa
Bay. She utilized her year as Miss America as a voice for those
living with diabetes.
Johnson is also a single mother. She was divorced when
Ava was a baby and she's thankful to live close to a very sup-
portive family, she said.
Johnson holds masters degrees in journalism and public
health, and she is in the doctoral program in Public Health at
USF. She's doing research on diabetes education in the health
community. She's working on, "reframing how we talk about
living with a lifelong illness from how we talk about it to how
professionals teach about it," Johnson said.
How does she balance daily life with a lifelong illness, class-
es, work, and motherhood?
"Its just tenacity. You get up at 2 a.m. and do whatever you
need to do," she said.
Type 1 diabetes, previously known as juvenile diabetes is
usually diagnosed in children and young adults. In Type 1 di-

Business Showcase


Meet the McNeals, Pinellas County's answer to 'Pawn Stars'
Like the guys on the popular TV show, McNeal Antiques buys and sells all kinds of antiques and collectibles, jewelry and coins. The 3,000-sqaure-foot showroom is full of
interesting items in every collectible area they even have an antique bumper car in the middle of the floor.


ST. PETERSBURG Fans of the History Channel's popular reality
show "Pawn Stars" may be surprised to learn that Pinellas has its own
hometown version of the Harrsion family's famed pawn shop,
conveniently located in St. Petersburg's Kenneth City.
But McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is not a pawn shop, though
it boasts the same government licensing.
"The atmosphere is entirely different from conventional pawn shops,"
said Jim Bartlett, an appraiser at the establishment. He has been
appraising antiques and jewelry for 20 years. "We have a much more
comfortable waiting area with television, magazines, candy and cookies.
The coffee is always on, and we even offer hot chocolate and tea."
History
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is a family-owned, family-
operated business that dates back to 1980.
"We were in the coin and jewelry business in Indiana until we
moved to Florida in 1992," said John McNeal. John and his wife, Laura,
opened 4th Street Antique Alley in 1993 as an antique mall with 50
dealers in a 10,000-square-foot showroom. Their mall was an outlet for
many other freelance antique, jewelry and coin dealers to display and
sell their merchandise. "In 2006, we decided to sell the mall and go
back to being freelance dealers. We moved to our current location in
2008."
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins does total estate liquidation
including autos and real property.
"Our staff consists of an auctioneer, a realtor, a gemologist and
jeweler, a certified appraiser for general antiques, an art
appraiser, sports memorabilia specialist, coins and stamps."
According to John, if it's an antique or collectable, McNeal Antiques
buys and sells it. "We love our jobs," John said. "We buy and sell gold,
silver, diamonds, coin, bullion and antiques, militaria and collectibles.
Selling to McNeal Antiques
In the current recession and with gold prices continuing to surge, a
number of businesses have sprung up recently trying to take
advantage of the situation.
"It's very confusing with all of the new 'We buy gold for Cash' stores
and out-of-town hotel buyers popping up everywhere," Jim said. He
warns prospective gold sellers that such outfits have no long-term
interest or concern for their customers' past, present or future business.
In some cases, the business may not even be licensed or qualified to
appraise the gold they're buying. "They feel no obligation to treat


customers fairly. They'll be on their way in a few days."
Jim went on to explain the difference between a local, family-owned
business like McNeal Antiques and the fly-by-night dealers, hotel-
room buyers and television scams.
"At McNeal Antiques, we have three comfortable buying stations,
and a professional, courteous sales staff for jewelry, stamps and coins;
antiques and collectibles and everything we offer." Jim said that
McNeal Antiques also employs armed security real, off-duty police
officers. They offer expert jewelry and watch repair. "The appraisers


From left to right: John McNeal, Scott with daughter Hazel, Ron, Christy
(McNeal,s daughter with dog Cloe), Jim Bartlett and Laura McNeal
will display the items you bring in a tray, test or research the items in
front of you via computer and then evaluate them and explain what
you have."
Most iii.p.. 1.. .11 McNeal Antique evaluations and appraisals are
offered for free in a comfortable setting without any pressure or
obligation.
"It's lots of fun," Jim said. "We pay cash or check- your choice."
Buying from McNeal Antiques
For those who collect coins, McNeal Antiques offers bullion coins for
sale all the way up to PSGS slabbed investment coins. The store also


sells investment coins, gold bars, krugerrands, maple leaves and
foreign and rare U.S. gold coins, mint sets, Morgan and Peace Dollars,
books and supplies.
"Come in and browse around," Jim said. McNeal Antiques, Jewelry
and Coins is bursting with rare, valuable and coveted items -
something for everyone, from the casual collector to the serious
connoisseur. "You're going to like it here."
What's in your safe deposit box?
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coin is best known for its zany
television commercials and its slogan What's in YOUR jewelry box?
The business' newest campaign continues along the same lines.
Now, McNeal is asking What s in your safe deposit box?
Some people pay an annual fee of $100 to a bank to store family
heirlooms, documents, gold, silver coins and rare items. In some cases,
people may not even remember what they're safeguarding.
McNeal offers to meet customers at the customer's bank to evaluate
and make an offer at no obligation. Customers also may bring in
anything of value to the store and convert unwanted items into cash.
McNeal Antiques also offers:
Written Certified Appraisals For Insurance purposes, tax and
probate, inheritance distribution or divorce settlement
Estate sales McNeal Antiques will bid to buy one item or entire
estates from lawyers, banks, powers of attorney and the general public
for onsite sales, liquidation or removal
House calls At no cost or obligation, representatives from
McNeal Antiques will meet with you or your family at home, a storage
facility or bank to discuss and evaluate your items for sale and make a
fair offer.
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is centrally located at 6206 54th
Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Call 544-6464.
If you have an item and would like an appraisal, you may e-mail a
photo to McNeal Antique at antiques@tampabay.rr.com, using the
subject line "I Need an Appraisal."

acquisitions the team at McNeal Antiques routinely handle, look for ads in

CLEARWATER Proceeds from a 2010

Marine Aquarium.
The Cougars of Clearwater calendar ef-
fort was organized by Judy Barrows and

something to give back to their community


and help raise awareness for CMA. The cal-
endar was sold online and at Clearwater
businesses. Nine hundred copies were sold
and 100 were mailed to troops overseas.
The women featured in the calendar pre-
sented the money to CMA.
Calendar organizers say they're consider-
ing making another one next year.

"We Changed Her Life" An actual testimonial from one of our patients...
Dr. Mountcastle, 4 i
Thank you for the wonderful job you did for me!
As you know, I had been suffering with severe throbbing, aches, and pains in my right leg for over two years.
Sleeping at night was nearly impossible, due to the involuntary leg movements that occurred most nights. This caused
me to have problems at work and in everyday life. All of this continued despite all my efforts to get relief (legs up on
pillows, massages, Potassium pills, drinking lots of water, support hose, many different types of shoes, and leg
exercises at least twice a day). Long stretches of sitting, especially in a car or on a plane, caused excruciating pain.
I had seen several doctors with no relief.
I prayed every night that I would get some relief and be able to sleep. Rarely did I have such luck. Diagnosed
with "restless leg syndrome" and given medication for it, I got little to no relief.
Convinced this was how I would have to spend the rest of my life, I saw an ad for Dr. Mountcastle. I had no idea
this would be the best phone call I ever made.
I made an appointment. At that meeting an ultrasound was performed which revealed an "insufficient saphenous
vein." The vein was repaired in one session. After taking a "relaxation pill," the procedure was performed in his
center. The recovery was very rapid, with little to no pain. I was back to full duty at my Physical Therapy job the
next day with no restrictions.
Thanks again Dr. Mountcastle, you have changed my life! - -

Opening this week

Comedic actors team up in 'Date Night'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
A number of new movie releases will hit the-
aters this week, including the following films
opening in wide release:
'Date Night'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mark
Wahlberg, Taraji P. Henson and Jimmi Simp-
son
Director: Shawn Levy
Rated: PG-13
Phil (Carell) and Claire Foster (Fey) are a
sensible, loving couple with two kids and a
house in suburban New Jersey. The Fosters
have their weekly "date night" an attempt
at re-experiencing the spice of the dates of
yesteryear, involving the same weekly night
out at the local Teaneck Tavern. Their con-
versations quickly drift from barely-date talk
to the same chore-chat they have at the din-


ner table at home. Exhausted from their
jobs and kids, their dates rarely end in fore-
or any other kind of play, let alone romance.
After seeing two of their best friends an-
other married couple with kids in suburban
New Jersey split apart from living the same
life they themselves lead, Phil and Claire
begin to fear what may lie ahead: a state of
bland indifference and eventual separation.
In an attempt to take date night off auto-
pilot, and hopefully inject a little spice into
their lives, Phil decides a change of plans is
in order: take Claire into Manhattan to the
city's hottest new restaurant. The Fosters,
however, don't have reservations. Hoping to
be seated sometime before the clock strikes
12, they steal a no-show couple's reserva-
tions. What could it hurt? Phil and Claire
are now the Tripplehorns.
The real Tripplehorns, however, it turns out,

OPENING, from page 15A


are a thieving couple who are being hunted
down by a pair of corrupt cops for having
stolen property from some very dangerous
people. Forced on the run before they've even
finished their risotto, Phil and Claire soon real-
ize that their play-date-for-parents has gone
hilariously awry, as they embark on a wild and
dangerous series of crazy adventures to save
their lives ... and their marriage.

'Letters to God'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Jeffrey S.S. Johnson, Robyn Lively,
Tanner Maguire and Maree Cheatham
Director: David Nixon and Patrick Doughtie
Rated: PG
Tyler Doherty (Maguire) is an extraordinary
8-year-old boy. Surrounded by a loving family
and community, and armed with the courage
of his faith, he faces his daily battle against
cancer with bravery and grace. To Tyler, God is
a friend, a teacher and the ultimate pen-pal -
Tyler's prayers take the form of letters, which
he composes and mails on a daily basis.
The letters find their way into the hands of
Brady McDaniels (Johnson), a beleaguered
postman standing at a crossroads in his life.
At first, he is confused and conflicted over
what to do with the letters. Over time he be-
gins to form a friendship with the Doherty


family getting to know not just Tyler but his
tough, tender yet overwhelmed mom (Lively),
stalwart grandmother (Cheatham) and teen
brother Ben (Bolten) who are each trying to
stand strong against the doubts that come
with the chaotic turn their lives have taken.
Moved by Tyler's courage, Brady realizes
what he must do with the letters, a surprise
decision that will transform his heart and up-
lift his newfound friends and community in
an exhilarating act of testament to the conta-
gious effect of one boy's unwavering faith
against the odds.
The following will open in limited release.

'The Good, The Bad,
The Weird'
Genre: Foreign, comedy and western
Cast: Jung Woo-sung, Lee Byeong-heon,
Song Kang-ho, Ryu Seun-su and Zhang Qi
Director: Kim Jee-Woon
Not rated
From acclaimed Korean genre wizard, Kim
Jee-Woon comes "The Good, The Bad, The
Weird," a classic good versus bad showdown
shot through with wild kinetic enthusiasm, off-
the-charts action and, well, a bit of weird.
In the 1930s Manchurian desert, where law-
lessness rules, the fates of three mysterious Ko-
rean men collide on a train carrying precious
cargo. The Good, a suave bounty hunter, The


Bad, the brazen leader of a gang of outlaws, and
The Weird, a hard-up robber with nine lives, are
swept up in a frantic chase across the wilder-
ness, fighting all the way for possession of a
mysterious treasure map. 'The Good, The Bad,
The Weird" explodes in a flurry of violence as
the Japanese Army and a brassed-off posse of
Chinese bandits join the pursuit. Who will
claim the prize for themselves? In this pulse-
pounding adventure, you can never be sure
who exactly is good, bad, or weird.

'Who Do You Love'
Genre: Drama, performing arts and biopic
Cast: Alessandro Nivola, Jon Abrahams, Chi
McBride, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Robert
Randolph
Director: Jerry Zaks
Not rated
From four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry
Zaks (Marvin's Room) comes "Who Do You
Love," an intimate portrayal of how Phil and
Leonard Chess built the legendary music label
Chess Records.
Chess launched some of the best loved
names in blues and rock 'n' roll, and the film
features authentic musical performances and
a score steeped in hits from the Chess Records
canon including Muddy Waters' "Stuff You
Gotta Watch," Etta James' "At Last" and Bo
Diddley's "Who Do You Love."
Leonard Chess, a Polish Jewish immigrant
living in Chicago, becomes enamored with the


new blues sound emanating from that city in
the mid-1940s. He and his brother Phil open a
club called Macomba and gamble on producing
"race records" with the help of bass player and
songwriter Willie Dixon. After initial failure,
they find tremendous success with the iconic
bluesman Muddy Waters, and on the strength
of his popularity, started Chess Records.
Chess Records quickly grew into an influen-
tial label, launching the careers of Waters, Bo
Diddley, Etta James, and Chuck Berry,
among others, and introducing the Blues to
American audiences on a broad scale. "Who
Do You Love" tracks the growth of Chess
Records, but more importantly, presents an
intimate look into the strains the label placed
on Leonard Chess' family, namely his wife
Revetta and his son Marshall.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:

Enjoying Life -With Dentures!
You used to love to eat out with friends. You used to love to talk and smile and
laugh. You used to enjoy every minute of life to its fullest. Now, you'd rather just stay
home.
1r -I.. i 1.. -".In. teeth, you are not alone. More than 20 million people in America
are edentulous or without teeth. Tooth loss is not only embarrassing and unattractive,
collapsing your face and causing you to look far
older than you need to, it is also unhealthy,
sometimes leading to serious problems. One
thing that every dentist knows, but almost no
one else does, is that over time, dentures cause
the jawbone to wear and whither away.
The obvious solution is to keep as many
So healthy, natural teeth as possible. Sometimes,
though, the condition has progressed until
r lcdentures are the only remaining option. But just
that word 'dentures' brings -ii .., '.. ,1 1 a
glass; embarrassing moments while eating and
the unattractive, ill-fitting look of false teeth.
Helping people find comfort and relief that not
only feels great, but looks great too, is one of the reasons I am glad to be a dentist. I
have found that one of the simplest and most effective ways to do this is with implant-
supported dentures.
How are these different than traditional dentures? First of all, the dentures made for
you look and fit much more like natural teeth. But the real benefit comes from the
implants that hold them in place. Implants are small posts placed into the bone to
replace the roots of missing teeth. These replacements fuse with the jawbone,

Dental implants can give you a greater sense of security while eating, laughing or
speaking. Implant-supported dentures can help create a comfortable bite, reduce
chances of bone loss, enhance aesthetics and improve your speech. There is no longer
any need to use adhesives or worry about teeth clacking while talking. Some actually
feel the new dentures have taken years off their appearance.
The one thing they all agree on, though, is how great it is to get back to enjoying
life with a big, secure, natural looking smile. Why waste another day? Call us at
727.586.1955 to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if you are eligible for
implant-supported cosmetic dentures. Also visit us at aboutsmilesdental.com and read

Do You Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer? |
Skin cancer is very common in the sunshine state. The American
Cancer Society estimates that there are over 1 million cases of skin
cancer per year in the United States. While most cancers are curable
when treated early, many are detected too late and can be deadly. I
There are 3 main types of skin cancer: Basil Cell Carcinoma (BCC),
Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Malignant Melanoma (MM).
Additionally, Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are the most common
precancer and may progress into Squamous cell if left untreated. I
Basal Cell is by far the most common skin cancer, accounting for I
nearly 80% of all skin cancers in the U.S. Thankfully, these rarely
spread (metastasize) but can be disfiguring. Basal Cell
Carcinomas often appear as a flesh-toned bump (papule) and have I
no symptoms. Eventually, they become a sore that bleeds or doesn't I
heal. These are most often treated in the office as an outpatient with I
extremely high success rate.

Gardening 25A


Beacon, April 8, 2010


The whole month of March was sort
of a wet lamb. There were no more
freezing temperatures and plenty of
rain. April is traditionally a dry month,
so ration the March rains in the rain-
barrels.
The ixora plants took a terrible chill
this winter. Many are
half alive and some of
the hedges IVe looked at
have not shown any
sign of rebounding this
spring. Another few
weeks will prove if
they're worth saving. I
repeatedly tell myself that it was the
coldest winter on record and that's why
long-standing shrubs were killed.
Some neighborhoods have rules that
mandate the homes must have lawns.
In my previous gardening life, BF (be-
fore Florida), fertilizer was put on twice
a year and crabgrass pre-emergent was
spread when the forsythia bloomed.
Never watered, as there was regular
rainfall and mowed when needed.
Grass growing in Florida is quite the
opposite. I see the chemical trucks
every day in the neighborhood; chasing
bugs, spraying liquid fertilizer who
knows what's hitting our ground. It's
not a funny ha-ha joke, but we fertilize
grass, cut it off when it grows and
throw it away. Duh why have grass.
I'd like to see homeowner associations


I


reverse the rule about grass and allow
only a small portion.
To help protect our waterways and
quality of drinking water, Pinellas
County passed an ordinance in Janu-
ary that will ban fertilization of lawns
from Oct. 1 through May 31, starting in
2011.
A few of the ordi-
nance points are:
Fertilizers con-
vppao training nitrogen
Ruth Davies and/or phosphorus
cannot be applied to
lawns or landscape
plants from June 1 to Sept. 30.
If granular fertilizers containing ni-
trogen are used, they must contain no
less than 50 percent slow-release nitro-
gen, per guaranteed analysis label.
A fertilizer-free zone is a 10-foot
buffer from a wetland, top of the bank
of a surface water, or landward edge of
a seawall. Fertilizer cannot be applied
within this zone.
If grass is still your choice as a
ground cover, keep the basics in mind:
keep the mowing height high; water
deeply on schedule; avoid heavy foot
traffic; and control weeds.
If this doesn't work for you, try a
non-grass ground cover.

Shallow water grouper looking good


Grouper season opened with some absolute first class
weather making it pretty inviting for many anglers to make it a
four-day weekend. Busy conditions may have made it difficult
to catch some fish on the artificial reefs, but those with some


good numbers in the 30 to
50 foot range were rewarded
with some nice catches of
grouper.
Using a combination of
live bait and frozen sardines
was the key for getting the
keeper sized fish to eat. Find-


I Fish Tales

Ji Wallerstein


ing small ledges or rocky bottom and positioning the boat just
up current of the spot will help you lure the fish out. Start out
fishing with the frozen sardines. If your bait is being ravished
by small baitfish and grunts, that's a good thing. The grouper
respond to all the activity and eventually get to the bait before


it's picked apart. It's then that you want to start dropping down
the pinfish. If there's some big fish at the spot, they're likely to
prefer the live bait. Make sure you give each spot at least a half
an hour before deciding to move. The water is still a bit cool
and the fish aren't super active.
With water temperatures just under 70 degrees the baitfish
are beginning to show up in our near shore waters. Along with
the bait comes the schools of mackerel and, hopefully, soon
some kingfish. Mackerel have been steady catches at the Sky-
way pier for a couple of weeks now and the bite is definitely im-
proving. Along our beaches pelicans and terns can be seen
diving just offshore. Small schools of mackerel are thrashing
through the bait pods as well. Casting gotcha plugs or trolling
small silver spoons will produce good numbers of mack's right
now.
Inshore fishing was a bit difficult this past week and definite-
ly over the weekend. A lot of boats on the water means rough

conditions in the afternoon. My advice is to go early and call it
a day early. Trout fishing was off at least for me this past week.
I'm choosing to blame it on the full moon; only time will tell if
that's the case. The bite is sure to rebound as we approach the
new moon and rising water temperatures. Clacker floats and
D.O.A. shrimp combinations will produce numbers of fish by
drifting the 3- or 4-foot grass flats, while free lining small grass
grunts and pinfish can produce larger trout along the shallow
drop offs were the water goes from about 1 foot to 2 or 3 foot
pretty quickly.
Until next week get bent!

New developments surface for osteoarthritis


By ROBERT DONNELLY

There is good news for the 21 million
Americans who suffer from osteoarthri-
tis. Most people over age 60 have some
degree of this degenerative disease. Al-
though there is no cure for osteoarthri-
tis, there are new developments in the
treatment of the condition.
Hyaluronate, a substance naturally
produced by every joint in the body, acts
as a shock absorber for healthy joints.
In those who suffer from osteoarthritis,
the body produces less hyaluronate. The
reduced amount and the thin, watery
consistency of their own hyaluronate are
not adequate to lubricate and cushion
the joints. This is a cause of the pain felt
in knees, hips or shoulders.
A new technique for relieving this
pain comes in the form of a lubricating

Health briefs


injection. During this process, a purified
mixture of hyaluronate is injected into
the affected joint, introducing a new
supply of this lubricating solution to the
painful joint. The injections are given
over a 30 day period, three to five days
apart. By directly injecting the solution
into the joint, the fluid coats the sur-
faces of the cartilage. The cartilage can
now move more smoothly, relieving the
pain.
Prime candidates for this new tech-
nique are patients who do not get ade-
quate relief from pain medication or
physical therapy. In those who cannot
take anti-inflammatory medications, lu-
bricating injections are a good alterna-
tive. Since they are injected locally, they
do not interfere with medications being
taken for other health problems. The
best part of the treatment is the fact that

it can relieve pain for nine to 12 months
after just one series of injections. Since
it is a natural substance, there is no
limit to the number of treatments you
may receive and side effects are mini-
mal. Some experience redness and or
bruising at the site of the injections and
a little swelling, most of which goes away
in a few hours.
Since this is an outpatient procedure,
there is little recovery time. After only 24
hours most patients return to normal
activity. It is always best to avoid heavy
lifting and strenuous activities such as
jogging or tennis until your doctor gives
the OK.
