City nears deal on Bay Pines MHP

GMAC is seeking approval for residential-commercial development


By BOB McCLURE


SEMINOLE Four years after the sale of the
Bay Pines Mobile Home Park, there is movement
on the potential development of the 60-acre tract
across from Bay Pines VA Medical Center.
City Manager Frank Edmunds noted at an April
10 City Council retreat that General Motors Ac-
ceptance Corp., which currently owns the proper-
ty, is interested in spearheading a
residential-commercial project and then turn the
reins over to a developer.
Officials at GMAC have been in discussion with
city officials regarding a zoning change from RM-
15 (residential-medium) to residential-commer-
cial. If that concept moves forward, the project
would go to the city's Development Review Board
for consideration as soon as April 19.
Edmunds, however, said the plan may revert to

a residential project due to federal funding options
that are available.
The property is currently zoned for up to 1,119
residential units.
City and GMAC officials were to continue dis-
cussions this week.
The property has been on the market for over a
year at $19 million by Cushman and Wakefield, a


commercial real estate broker based in Tampa,
after the original ownership group fell into finan-
cial difficulty.
On the issue of the Seminole Mall, Edmunds
said nothing has been presented to the city by the
owners of the property, Downtown Seminole LLC.
"We've heard discussions of many things in-
volving the Seminole Mall but nothing has been
presented," Edmunds said. "We've heard rumors
of foreclosure. We're monitoring that but don't see
that happening. We're just going to wait and see.
That's all we can do."
In other economic development news, Commu-
nity Development Director Mark Ely said the city
has seen $2.3 million in renovations in the past
year. Those projects include Manhattan Hair-
styling Academy, $500,000; Suncoast Chrysler,

Experts say hurricane season could be busy


By SUZETTE PORTER

Early predictions are calling for the 2010 At-
lantic hurricane season to be a busy one.
Philip Klotzbach and William Gray, scientists at
the Department of Atmospheric Science at Col-
orado State University, issued a report on April 7
that said they foresee above-average activity for
the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season.
AccuWeather meteorologists concurred in a re-
port issued April 8 with Joe Bastardi, chief long-
range meteorologist and hurricane forecaster,
saying the 2010 season will be much more active
with above-normal threats on the U.S. coastline.
The experts from Colorado are predicting that
15 named storms will form this season, eight hur-
ricanes and four intense hurricanes, Category 3


or above.
Bastardi's team is forecasting 16 to 18 tropical
storms with 15 of them forming in the western At-
lantic of Gulf of Mexico and becoming a threat to
land. AccuWeather experts also say seven of the
storms will make landfall. Five will be hurricanes
and two or three will by major landfalls in the
United States, they said.
Gray and Klotzbach predict landfall probability
of 69 percent for the entire U.S. coastline. The av-
erage for the last century is 52 percent. They said
there is a 45 percent chance that a hurricane will
make landfall on the U.S. East Coast including
Florida. The average for the last century is 31 per-
cent. The probability for the Gulf Coast from the
Florida Panhandle westward to Brownsville is 44
percent. The average for the last century is 30


percent.
The probability of at least one major hurricane,
Category 3 or above, making landfall in the
Caribbean is 58 percent. The average for the last
century is 42 percent.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June
1 to Nov. 30.
The experts give several reasons for their pre-
dictions, including weakening El Nino conditions,
strong unusual warming of the tropical Atlantic,
which were the two main factors considered by
Gray and Klotzbach.
Bastardi added two additional conditions:
weakening trade winds and higher humidity lev-
els, which he says make for more favorable

County funds T-groin repairs at Upham Beach


By SUZETTE PORTER


CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners ap-
proved unanimously April 6 the sixth amendment to the
agreement for consultant engineering services for the Long
Key Beach Nourishment Project with Coastal Planning and
Engineering Inc. of Boca Raton.
Approval of the amendment allows work to begin toward
repair of two temporary geotube structures at Upham
Beach.
The estimated cost for the repairs is $450,000.
Upham Beach has long been a problem area for Pinellas
County. It has the reputation of having the worst erosion
problem on the state's west coast.
A series of T-head groins installed in 2006 have proven
successful, according to a staff report. The T-head acts as
a breakwater dissipating wave energy.
Two of the five geotube structures were damaged in early
2008, which greatly reduced their effectiveness, staff said.


Repairs made at the time have not stood the test of time
and, staff said significant damage to the geotubes is evi-
dent.
CPE has served as the engineer of record since the pro-
ject's inception. Staff said it had the "experience and exper-
tise to provide the services needed for the repair."
The current schedule calls for the repairs to be made
during the summer of 2010 at the same time Upham
Beach is undergoing nourishment.
Staff recommends that permanent rock groins be used
to replace the temporary structures during the next nour-
ishment in 2012-13.
Repairing the geotubes will allow more of the sand
placed during the upcoming nourishment to be retained,
staff said, thereby reducing the cost of future nourish-
ments.
The sixth amendment will increase the cost of the project
by $64,077. The expense is split 50-50 between the county
and the state.

SPC buys county land
for veterinary school
By SUZETTE PORTER
St. Petersburg College's plans to build a facility to house
its veterinary technology program moved ahead when
Pinellas County commissioners said yes April 6 to a land
deal for just over 12 acres.
The unanimous vote approved the sale of county-owned
land declared as surplus via a private sale to the not-for-
profit corporation for a price of $725,000. The land is locat-
ed on the east side of Ulmerton Road, west of 130th
Avenue North and fronting McKay Creek.
St. Petersburg College Foundation plans to construct a
new facility to house the veterinary technology program.
The program offers certification, and two or four year de-
grees.
The land is not needed by the county and the compre-
hensive plan no longer shows a need for the parcel.

Catholic Charities opens doors to Haitians


By THOMAS MICHALSKI

Catholic Charities of St. Petersburg, which three years ago
opened the controversial but now successful Pinellas Hope tent
city for Pinellas County's homeless, has now opened its doors
to a flow of Haitian immigrants who lost their homes and prop-
erty to the devastating 7.0 earthquake that rocked the island
on Jan. 24.
Sheila Lopez, executive director of Pinellas Hope, said more
than 100 immigrants already have been accepted into the
Catholic Charities fold, with more expected in the future.
None of the new immigrants are being housed at Pinellas
Hope.
Besides money and donations of such things as clothing and
household goods, Catholic Charities has a critical need for in-
terpreters who speak French and Haitian Creole, the country's
two official languages.
"Helping people is what we do best," Lopez said. 'The people
who suffered so much in that terrible earthquake deserve all
the help we can provide in these trying times."
Some of the immigrants are housed at a secret location in
Pinellas County where they receive medical and other assis-
tance before being moved to shelters, private homes and other
facilities that are run by social organizations. Virtually all of the
immigrants arrived at Tampa International Airport over the
past few weeks.
Lopez did not know how many more would be coming into

Florida.
Catholic Charities is an arm of the Diocese of St. Petersburg
that serves Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas
counties.
It has launched a drive to obtain money, food, clothing, per-
sonal items and other needs for the new immigrants, most of
whom arrived in Pinellas County with little more than the
clothes on their backs.
The earthquake which devastated the Port-au-Prince area
along with 52 aftershocks of 4.5 or greater, killed approximately
230,000 people and left more than a million homeless. An esti-
mated 250,000 homes and 30,000 commercial buildings were
severely damaged or destroyed.
Lopez said most people are unaware of how the victims are
suffering from their injuries.
"I have seen adults and little children without arms and
legs," Lopez.
One woman and child who are now housed in Pinellas Coun-
ty was cooking a meal in her home when the initial quake
struck. A pot of cooking oil was shaken off the stove.
"It fell on the woman and her child who was severely
burned," Lopez said. 'The baby is doing as well as can be ex-
pected under the circumstances."
Lopez said many of the immigrants want to remain in Flori-
da, or in other states, to rebuild their lives. Most have lost their
homes, their property and their loved ones in the earthquake.
"It all brings tears to my eyes when I see and talk to them,"

Lopez said. "It is so sad to see these poor people sick, with lost
limbs, burns and other injuries..."
Although other organizations in Pinellas County and beyond
have lent a hand to the Haitian immigration effort, Lopez said
Catholic Charities is fast in becoming the leader in the assis-
tance drive to help them. With vast resources and a track
record of taking the helm when it comes to disaster relief,
Catholic Charities has sprung into action to fight homeless-
ness, assist hurricane victims and create volunteer forces to
help survivors of all other disasters.

be dropped off at Pinellas Hope which is located at 5726 126th

Celebrate Seminole set May 1


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE The name has changed but
the theme is still the same with food and
music in an outdoor venue.
Celebrate Seminole, formerly known as
Taste of Seminole, is set Saturday, May 1,
3 to 9 p.m., next to the Treasure Island
Fun Center at 7770 Seminole Blvd.
"Due to the economy, a lot of restaurants
in the area are no longer in business," said
promoter Scott Meehan. "So that's why we
changed the name to Celebrate Seminole."
The event will still feature a variety of
area food vendors, as well as nonfood ven-
dors and music by the duo Espree deKor,
which played the event a year ago.
In addition, patrons will be able to watch
the Kentucky Derby on a 73-inch television


BAY PINES, from page 1


$500,000; Winn-Dixie, $800,000; and Casa
Celeste adult congregate living facility,
$500,000.
Another $2.65 million in new commercial
construction is under way or planned for
fiscal year 2010. Those projects involve an
Aldi food store at Seminole Boulevard and
Lake Vista Drive, $1.25 million; and a CVS
pharmacy at the northwest corner of Park
Street and Tyrone Boulevard.
In addition to the Bay Pines project, the
city has three other potential projects.
"They're all owned by banks," said Ed-
munds. "It's a trend that's going to continue
through this year and into next year."
They include the 20-acre Hutchinson site
behind Home Depot on 70th Avenue, which
is zoned for 247 residential units; the 13-
acre Women's Hospital site on Seminole
Boulevard, owned by Cornerstone Bank,
which is zoned for 65 residential units; and
the 8-acre Jesse's Landing site on Park
Boulevard, immediately east of Home
Depot, which is zoned for 71 units.
The city is also actively involved in recon-
structing or renovating its four fire stations.
Work is currently under way at Station
31, 13091 88th Ave., to make the building
more hurricane-resistant. Structural hard-
ening work includes additional steel in the
exterior walls, a new redesigned roof, relo-
cation of air conditioning and electronic
equipment from the roof, replacement of the
air conditioning system and duct work, re-
placement of the windows and new doors.
Cost of the project is $247,193, which is
funded by the Capital Improvement Projects
fire fund. The targeted completion date is
late July.
Station 32 at 10790 110th Ave., will be
replaced by the city at some point in the fu-
ture with a prototype two-bay fire station at
a cost of about $2 million. The city is cur-


that will be under a tent.
Food vendors include Curries Indian
Restaurant of Pinellas Park; Hammerhead's
Seafood of Seminole; The Sports Bar and
Grille, Seminole; Big Mike's Pizza, Semi-
nole; Freedom Square Catering, Seminole;
Empanada World, Tampa; Thai Basil,
Largo; and Smokin' Rib Shack BBQ, Largo.
The Seminole Chamber of Commerce will
be selling hot dogs and another vendor will
be selling kettle corn.
Nonfood vendors include Jim's Body
Shop of Seminole, RE/MAX All-Pro, B
Squared Automotive, Get Fitness, Broad-
view Security, Seashell Crafters (jewelry),
Savvy Sisters Boutique, Natural Sunday
Soaps, Adam and Eve Day Spa and Cor-
nerstone Bank.
Admission and parking is free.


rently in the process of having design work
done at a cost of $225,000. The design was
recently updated to include various sus-
tainability aspects in hopes of achieving
LEED silver certification.
The city has applied for a federal grant to
cover construction costs and the applica-
tion is pending. If unsuccessful, the city
would seek to transfer $1 million from the
fire district fund balance to the Capital Im-
provement Projects fund to partially fund
the project. The remainder could come from
Pinellas County sources.
The fire district's Fleet Maintenance
Building at 11195 70th Ave., is targeted for
structural improvements. Plans call to re-
move existing windows and replace them
with impact-resistant windows, and general
improvements. Funding will be finalized
after a cost is determined by engineers.
Station 30 at 8971 Starkey Road, which
was originally built in 1976, will be renovat-
ed. It is currently in the design process at a
cost of $160,000. Plans call for improve-
ments to various weak points, such as
doors, windows and roofing, as well as liv-
ing conditions.
"We expect to receive LEED certification
with as many sustainability features as
possible," said Edmunds.
He said the overall cost of renovations
and hardening will be about $1.2 million.
Existing CIP funds, county money and
other city dollars will be the source. No tar-
get date has been set.
The city is also in the process of replacing
three picnic shelters at Seminole City Park
on Ridge Road at a cost of $122,000.
The new shelters will be wood construc-
tion with metal gable roofs. Funding is pro-
vided by a $67,805 grant from the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
Division of Recreation and Parks, and
Penny for Pinellas dollars.
The targeted completion date is mid-May.

CLEARWATER A cacophony of car horns
were greeted by excited yells April 8 on the
corner of State Road 580 and McMullen Booth
Road. Dozens of teachers turned out through-
out Pinellas County to protest Senate Bill 6,
which would include basing half of teachers'
pay on test scores and eliminate tenure.
The Florida House of Representatives
passed the bill 65-55 at 2:26 a.m. April 9, but
teachers and school board members were
hopeful that Gov. Charlie Crist would veto the
bill before the seven-day deadline runs out.
If signed into law, the bill would require
merit pay, and half of teachers' evaluations
would be based on student tests and learning
gains. Tenure would also go away, and teach-
ers would not be paid any more even if they
have special certification or their master's or
doctorate degrees.
Carol Cook, vice chairwoman of the Pinellas
County School Board, said that one of her
biggest concerns is that so many things are
unclear about what the details in the bill
mean, how they would be implemented, and
how they would be funded.
"What bothers me about this is not so much
whether our teachers need payment for per-
formance or whether we need high standards
or even tenure," Cook said. "It's the fact that
when you talk to people in Tallahassee, which
we did during spring break, is you couldn't get
the same story about what the bill is or is
going to do, and that concerns me that people
are voting for things of which they don't have
a clear picture."
For instance, she said it was not clear as to
whether teachers would have their current
base salaries and then merit pay would be on
top of that or whether half of their total
salaries would be fixed and the other half
would be based on test scores and student
achievement. If it is the former, School Board
member Peggy O'Shea, said that the biggest
problem is that there is zero funding for this.
The state was relying on getting the federal
Race to the Top grant for education, but Flori-
da did not get that in the first round. There-
fore, in a year when school district budgets
are being slashed yet again, they would have
to find an additional $20 million to $30 million
to fund the additional pay.
"We understand the state has less revenue
coming in than in past years," O'Shea said.
"We understand the economics involved. So
why create more spending during these times?
In the last three years, we've cut $104 million
out of our budget in Pinellas County Schools.
And we've already identified another $54 mil-
lion in cuts in this coming year."
If total pay were to be half based on merit
pay, that could cause even more problems,
Cook said. In either case, it is unclear how
student achievement and progress would be
determined, and educators are concerned
about its fairness.
Performance pay would be unfair if it is a
blanket statement, where each student is sup-
posed to make a year's worth of progress each
year, Cook said, because there are variables
such as non-English speaking students, espe-
cially those who come into the classroom part
of the way through the school year. Further-
more, teachers in schools in poorer areas,


will be issued within 48 hours, and tropi-
cal storm warnings will be issued when
adverse conditions are expected within 36
hours.
Another change involves the Saffir-
Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, which the
NHC said would become operational this
year. The scale keeps the same wind speed
ranges but no longer ties specific storm
surge and flooding effects to each catego-
ry.
One additional change concerns the size
of the forecast cone, which represents the
probable track of the center of the storm.
As the season draws closer, more experts
will be making seasonal predictions with
the NHC's forecast coming in late May.
Regardless of the forecast, experts ad-
vise residents to be prepared, to make a
hurricane plan now and be ready before
the first storm comes.

where there are more parents who are not in-
volved in their children's education, would be
deeply hurt by this, she said.
However, if there was a more personalized
rating of success, she said, say where an
FCAT-level-1 student in a poor school were to
supposed to get up to a 1.5 or a 1.7 and then
a level-3 student in a wealthy school or gifted
program was supposed to get to a level 4, that
could be deemed more fair.
"I think the public needs to know that
teachers are not afraid of accountability,"
Cook said. 'They put more pressure on them-
selves to make sure students achieve than
this bill puts on them, but I don't think we
should add the insecurity of not knowing what
they're going to be paid this year. Most people
know going in that This is what I'm going to
get paid this year.' Teachers don't work on
commission. ... How can you plan for your fu-
ture, how can you plan a budget, how can you
plan for your family if you don't know how
much you'll make from year to year?"
Whereas people who work on commission
have some control over how well they do, Cook
said, teachers are assigned a school and as-
signed a set of students and they have to do
their best to help them achieve the best that
they can do, but that is different depending on
the specific situation.
O'Shea agreed that the School Board does
not oppose all merit pay, but it should be done
in the right way.
"If they want us to do performance pay,
then let us figure out how to do it, but don't
tie our hands in the process," O'Shea said.
Teachers at the protest April 8 voiced their
concerns about the bill. Helen Tait of Safety
Harbor and a social studies teacher at Coun-
tryside High School said she showed up to
protest because students should be No. 1 and
that teachers mean more than tests.
"(If the bill passed,) I think it would make a
lot of teachers in education feel underappreci-
ated, devalued and disrespected," Tait said.
"We're professionals. We have to support edu-
cation in Florida. There shouldn't be such ani-
mosity towards us."
Jennifer Luther of Palm Harbor and a
chemistry teacher at Countryside High said
she thinks the bill is neither a good deal for
the teachers nor the students of Florida and
that teachers want to be effective in the class-
room, and this would not help.
"I think it will do more harm than good, and
I think it will take a generation to overcome,"
Luther said. "We have colleagues standing out
here who would not be teaching here anymore
if this goes through."
Luther added that this is going to hurt col-
lege students who were planning to major in
education many of them will probably either
change their major or else teach in a state
other than Florida, she said. She hoped that
Gov. Crist would take note of the protest, es-
pecially given his Pinellas County roots, and
veto the bill.
Meredith McGlamery of Holiday and an
English honors teacher at Countryside said
fear brought her to the protest. She said the
bill could hurt public schools as a whole.
"I think in 10 years we'd have maybe half
the public schools we have now," McGlamery
said. "People are touting vouchers, but trans-
portation will not get those kids to private
schools."

Trio arrested in road rage incident
SEMINOLE A road rage incident Sunday, April 11, in Semi-
nole, resulted in one man being seriously injured and three
others arrested.
The incident occurred at about 8:06 p.m. at the intersection
of 113th Street and 102nd Avenue.
According to deputies, two vehicles were headed northbound
on 113th Street. As they were both stopped at a red light at
Park Boulevard, 17-year-old Sterling Goodloe, of 3121 Mary L.
Road, Clearwater, who was a back seat passenger in a 2001
BMW, threw some trash out of the window.
Troy McKenna, 47, of 5647 Bayview Drive, Seminole, who
was a passenger in the other vehicle, became angry and started
to yell at Goodloe.
Both vehicles continued on, with insults and profanities
yelled back and forth as both swerved through traffic. Deputies
say the driver of McKenna's vehicle (McKenna's wife) attempted
to stay back, to allow the BMW to proceed and leave.
At the intersection of 113th Street and 102nd Avenue, the
BMW came to a stop. McKenna's vehicle was just behind it.
Deputies say McKenna got out of his vehicle and approached
the BMW.
At that point, the passengers of the BMW, Goodloe and 17-
year-old Brandon Harvey of 3121 Mary L. Road, Clearwater, ex-
ited the vehicle and a physical altercation began between the
two parties. According to deputies, Goodloe and Harvey
punched and kicked McKenna repeatedly.
McKenna suffered serious injuries and was transported by
air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment.
Goodloe and Harvey got back into the BMW and fled the
scene with 26-year-old Miranda Coyle, 5911 110th Way N.,
Seminole, still at the wheel.
During the course of their investigation, deputies were able
to track the BMW through tag information provided by the vic-
tims, and subsequently identified and contacted the suspects

Madeira Beach woman
nabbed after fight
PINELLAS PARK A Madeira Beach woman was arrested
April 8 for brawling with another female over alleged trash talk.
Amanda G. Whitley, 27, was charged with disorderly conduct
and violation of parole on two previous theft charges. She re-
mains in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $11,750 bail.
Officer Donna Saxer said she responded to the 9200 block of
49th Street at about 9:35 a.m. to investigate a report of two
women fighting. Whitley was subsequently arrested.

Teen plays chicken with cruiser
PINELLAS PARK A Clearwater teenager was arrested on
March 31 after he allegedly aimed his car at a police cruiser
and then sped off.
Nikola Vuckovic, 19, was charged with reckless driving and
violation of driver's license restrictions. He was released from
the Pinellas County Jail in his own recognizance.
Officer Nathan Ortiz said he was in the southbound lane of
47th Street near 82nd Avenue at about 11:10 a.m. when
Vuckovic steered his 2001 Toyota sedan toward the cruiser.
Police said the suspect continued to drive at the cruiser in
an intimidating manner and finally swerved away and sped
off.
Vuckovic was stopped on a nearby street and told police,

A Pinellas County jewel


Beacon, April 15, 2010


The opening of the 163-acre Eagle Lake
Park this week showed preserverance and
vision on the part of county officials.
The property, located off Keene Road, is
the most centrally located of all county
parks.
Amenities include a playground, six picnic
shelters, three restrooms, a dog park, a
paved recreation trail, 2,000 feet of board-
walks over wetlands
and parking spaces.
Wildlife visiting the
parks include fox
squirrels, numerous
birds, gopher tortoises .
and other turtles. -.
For years, county of-
ficials have patiently
pursued the acquisi-
tion and development
of the property for the
park. Work was funded
by a $7.2 million in
Penny for Pinellas rev-
enue and two state
grants totaling $1.16
million.
Though the park opening was delayed be-
cause of budget restraints, county officials
kept their word that the park would be
opened this month.
That they didn't delay the opening indefi-
nitely shows that county officials place a
premium on their parks. With the property's
trails, playground and natural habitat, the


betting line here is that the park will be used
extensively.
County residents are passionate about
their parks. Though they may tolerate tem-
porary closings of recreational facilities and
reduced hours of operations, residents likely
would have given officials an earful if the
park sat idle for many more months.
Time will tell whether the county, as well
as municipalities,
will be able to con-
tinue to maintain all
their parks at their
current level of oper-
ations under severe
budget limitations.
Residents may have
to deal with less op-
erating hours for
parks and other
recreation facilities.
Same goes for li-
braries.
With the tax base
countywide expected
to drop 10 percent
or more, prompting
county officials to find ways of cutting $60
million from their budget, residents with
time on their hands can do their part by vol-
unteering to help their local governments.
And, after a cold winter, what better way
for residents to show their appreciation for a
new park than to use it.
After all, spring is in the air.

Motorists should
stop at crosswalk
Editor:
What does one have to do to get a motorist
to stop for a pedestrian on Eighth Avenue
Southwest at the crosswalk at Taylor Park
near Pinecrest Drive? You see my friend and
I walk her dog there most every day and
when it comes to crossing Eighth Avenue
Southwest, I cannot believe how many peo-
ple do not stop. Even with myself holding,
leaning against the crosswalk sign in either
my bright fluorescent-green T-shirt or blue
sweat shirt, neither which cannot be missed
as they are so bright. I cannot get over the
number of drivers that do not stop, and keep
on going, although the speed limit is only 30
mph and posted as such you would think it
was 50 mph or 55 mph the way they drive.
I realize everyone is in a hurry these days,
but in a hurry to get to where I must ask
myself? To that red light up ahead or that
television show that is about to start and
you forgot to set your DVR, or that you need
to get somewhere you should of been 10
minutes ago. So you're in a hurry. Please, all
we are asking for is a few seconds not even
a full minute to be allowed to cross the
street safely and so that we too can get to
where we want to go, whether it's the walk in
the Taylor Park or home to cook dinner; we
too want to enjoy our life.
So please, the next time you see myself
and my friend walking her dog on Eighth Av-
enue Southwest or anyone walking and try-
ing to cross at any crosswalk (not all
crosswalks have blinking lights) please stop
and allow us to cross the street. We will wave
and thank you for taking time out of your
busy day to allow us to cross safely and you
too will feel better that you did. Oh, and you
might be thinking to yourself or your spouse
and saying, "That's the young ones for you"
if you mean the ones over 60, you are right;
they are the worse for driving right past us!
Have a great day.

Public option needed for
property insurance
Editor:
Florida needs a single payer insurance
program for property insurance.
The real problem Citizens is the public
option of last resort. If the Legislature would
let them cut prices in half they would quick-
ly become the insurance company of first re-
sort. And be able to put the tens of billions of
dollars in a state reserve fund. In other
words Florida needs to change Citizens into


a single payer option for property insurance
just like state retirement system. This is the
only way to reduce insurance costs to an af-
fordable level for property owners in Florida.
The incestuous relationship between our
state legislators and big insurance has im-
poverished home owners. A true public op-
tion for property insurance is the only
answer for Florida's insurance starved, hur-
ricane-lashed property owners.

Supports cafe operator
Editor:
When I was visiting in Largo the last few
months I had the pleasure of attending the
library 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
successful, 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 termi-
nate a proven success to seek a new and un-
known operator.

A great chili blaze
Editor:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
What a great chili blaze.
The Pinellas Park firefighters would like to
thank everyone who attended this great
event. What a huge success and we could
not have done it without the support of the
city of Pinellas Park, our great sponsors,
vendors, chili contestants, and our firefight-
ers.
I am proud to say that this event raised
right around $19,000 for the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association.
The fireworks were awesome and I believe
that we will do them again next year.
Please bear with me on posting winners
and pics on the Web site but I will get to it as
soon as I can. www.chiliblaze.com
Thank you again for another great chili

If ever an institution was
ripe for revolution, it's today's
Roman Catholic Church.
It has been 493 years since
the Catholic priest and the-
ologian Martin Luther nailed
his 95 theses to the church
door in Wittenberg. Luther
and many others of that day
were protesting the church's
sale of indulgences the
granting of forgiveness in ex-
change for money.
Today, such a practice
seems almost petty com-
pared to the sexual and ethi-
cal corruption that has
attached itself to the modern
church.
Luther's insurrection was
met by his being excommuni-
cated by Pope Leo X. The re-
formation followed, splitting
the RCC asunder. In the past
decade, a new rift has oc-
curred in the church. It
began about 2002 in Boston,
where the daily newspaper
turned up evidence that hun-
dreds of boys and girls had
been molested by priests.
The resulting scandal and
lawsuits have cost the
church millions of dollars
and resulted in the shutting
down of churches through-
out the city.
In recent months, addi-
tional rocks have been
turned over in Ireland, Wis-
consin, Germany and in
Rome itself. Pedophile priests
have slithered out. Emerging
with them has come evidence
of cover-ups by the papal hi-
erarchy, perhaps including
Pope Benedict XVI himself.
Today it seems impossible
not to believe that thousands
- perhaps millions of dis-
gusted Catholics are wishing
for the appearance of a new
leader, a man or woman who
will declare permanent and
absolute independence from
the rule of Rome. What a
beautiful sight that would be
- a worldwide throng of RCC

worshippers who still believe
in many of the tenets and
ceremonies of the Catholic
faith, but who refuse to par-
ticipate any longer in an
unquestioning, sheeplike
obedience to the Pope and
his scarlet-robed princes.
The new Catholic church,
should it come, would surely
open up the priesthood to
women. Marriage of priests
would be not only permitted
but encouraged. The perver-
sion known as priestly
celibacy would be forever
ended. So would the protec-
tion and cover-ups historical-
ly shown to priests and nuns
who, by disregarding their
sacred vows, have brought
shame to the church and to
the thousands of its upright
servants.
But even as I write these
critical words, I'm overtaken
by the thought that perhaps
too much is already being
written and said about the
RCC today. My opinions and
those of many other observers
will not resolve the problems
of the RCC. It seems to me
that enough revelations and
charges have come forth to
showcase the church's fail-
ings, as well as its good
points. So why don't we all
shut the hell up for awhile,
and see what happens?
One result could be that
the ensuing silence might
trigger the civil authorities to
bolder actions. In many
cases of church controversies
(Catholic, Protestant and
what-have-you) secular law
enforcement agencies have
trod too carefully, under the
assumption that the church
should or would deal with its


n Luther
own troubles. This has al-
lowed many culprits to go
free, or be quietly transferred
to another parish.
I'm not familiar with the
protocols of the Vatican and
the Italian government, but
it might be edifying if one day
a caravan of Italian law en-
forcement officers, with war-
rants in hand, should roll
into St. Peter's Square and
demand access to the Pope
and the august members of
his inner circle.
Another continuing outfall
of the RCC's scandals will
probably be a steady defec-
tion of rank-and-file worship-
pers. Has anyone performed
a detailed study of how many
Catholics have left the
church since 2002?
It might be difficult to pin
down the exact number.
Equally revealing, if they
were attainable, would be the
figures on declining financial
support from all sources.
No one knows when or
how the travail and turmoil
of today's Catholic Church
will end. Possibly the next
chapter of this saga will
begin with the death of the
present Pope, who is 83 and
in failing health. The selec-
tion of his successor will be
an indicator of how seriously
the College of Cardinals re-
gards the problem of way-
ward priests and the bishops
who have tolerated them.
Of one thing we can be
sure: As always, the Vatican
will survive, largely unper-
turbed by the current
brouhaha or any others that
may follow. The church
thinks in terms of centuries.
It knows full well how time
can wash away unpleasant
episodes and obliterate the
church's enemies. Sweet are
the uses of an eternal view-
point.

He came home with us
just eight months ago. His
paperwork at the Humane
Society of Pinellas said his
name was George, and it
seemed to suit him.
At 14 1/2 years he was
well past his prime and
looked every one of his years
spent on the streets of
Clearwater with his home-
less companion. George's
owner had surrendered him
in 2009 with the note, "I
can't take care of him any-
more."
George was a Blue Heeler.
Neither my wife, Nancy, nor
I had ever seen one before -
they're the breed in those
"Blue Dog" paintings. Silent,
we only heard him bark
once. He never asked for
anything. We knew he was
self-reliant and still the ever
fast companion, despite his
crippling arthritis.
The veterinarian said he
had probably been struck by
a bike which had left his hip
badly healed and his legs
bent; the arthritis made


walking difficult bad when
you live on the street.
After six months at the
Humane Society, no one
had shown any interest in
adopting George. He could
have lived out the rest of
his life there among others
like himself, unwanted, dis-
carded, no place to go.
When we saw him, he didn't
ask, he just came with us.
When Nancy took him out
to see his new backyard he
had to be carried up and
down the stairs she said
his eyes got as big as
saucers on seeing and per-
haps smelling grass and the
small lake beyond. It was a
good place to take care of
business and explore, and
just generally do dog things,
all the while ignoring his
three adopted brothers. He
ran or what passed for run-
ning; imagine Walter Bren-
nan going full out.
George had a bed and an
indoor emergency relief sta-
tion which he always got to
in time. He was fastidious


Harlan
Weikle


and would nose his bed cov-
ers until they were just so.
He slept a lot.
He liked to sneak into the
laundry room and help him-
self to the cat's food, when
that wasn't available a dried
sweet potato stick suited
George just fine.
One night recently George
ignored his food and showed
no interest in getting out of
bed.
The next day George
couldn't stand without sup-
port and by early afternoon
his temperature began to
drop; we took him to the
emergency clinic.
George was leaving us and
there was only one thing left
for us to do, the only thing
he would ever ask us for.
The doctor gave him a
pain shot and we took him


home for the second time.
We called our friend, Dr.
Dani McVety.
I met Dr. McVety at a Vet-
erinary Hospice Symposium
last summer in California.
She was a newly minted vet-
erinarian then who had not
yet begun her practice.
When she did it was to be a
mobile veterinary hospice
care. That's all she once told
me she had ever wanted to
do.
Dani asked a few ques-
tions, told Nancy what we
needed to be aware of, and
said she would be on call if
George needed her.
We slept downstairs with
George that night, which
passed peacefully. He slept
hard maybe it was the pain
medication, perhaps he was
just content to be in his own
bed.
At 11 the next morning we
called Dani. She asked how
he was doing we thought
he was doing better, but
knew it was wishful think-
ing.


Dani arrived later that af-
ternoon to help George. It
wasn't awful or scary; Dani
was gentle, George seemed
to be at peace, surrounded
by his family and in his own
bed.
George left us his life's
circle complete, he was
home.

What? No showers on

commuter trains?


If you have an original,
bona fide argument against
plans for a high-speed rail
system in Florida, lay it on
me.
Here's what I've heard over
the years:
"It's going to be expensive to
build."
Yupper.
"It's going to be expensive to
operate."
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
"People are not going to give
up there cars."
Even if gas costs $5 a gal-
lon.
OK, all the above are valid
arguments.
But try this on for size:
"High-speed rail is suscepti-
ble to terrorist attacks."
Brilliant!
Of course they are and so
are highways, government of-
fices, universities, theme
parks, airports, bus stations,
stadiums, cathedrals, muse-
ums, parks, prisons, bridges,
and water treatment plants.
Oops, Homeland Security is
calling. I've divulged too much
information here.
The feds have been watch-
ing me ever since I was 8
years old. My buddy and I
plotted to topple the Castro
regime. We were going to send
ol' fuzzy face a box of exploding
cigars.
Couldn't afford the postage,
though.
Sorry, I've gotten side-
tracked.
Now comes my favorite lame
anti-rail argument: It's too hot
in Florida.
According to some think-
tank talker at the University of
South Florida's Center for
Urban Transportation Re-
search, most of the large cities
within a rail system are locat-
ed in milder, more sustainable
climates where a "one-mile
walk to the rail station is invig-
orating."
Not so in Florida, he wrote,
alluding to the heat.
What say you Chicagoians?
Last time I was up there, my
friends and I rode commuter
trains back and forth from
downtown to Wrigley Field in
August, in the heat, humidity
and rain.
What? It gets sticky in
Chicago?


STom
Germond


The trains were packed,
and, based on a quick obser-
vation, I don't think they had
bathrooms on the trains,
much less showers. And, as I
suspected, sweat didn't dis-
criminate; you were perspiring
whether you were a Florida
Gators, St. Louis Cardinals or
a Chicago Cubs fan.
We met a friend who rode
the train for 90 minutes, from
the outskirts of Chicago, just
to avoid the traffic and the
hassle of trying to find a place
to park.
Washington, D.C.? I've rid-
den trains there when it's hot
and cold, along with men and
women in suits, military per-
sonnel and tourists like my-
self. When I was in the D.C.
area in October 2002, the Belt-
way snipers were on the loose.
Nevertheless, people went
about their lives, waiting in
shelters for buses, walking to
the Metro stations, boarding
and deboarding the trains, a
steady stream of people deter-
mined to go about their lives
even though they could be sit-
ting ducks.
They did what they had to
do whether or not they were
invigorated.
I would gladly ride a train
from Pinellas County to Orlan-
do to attend a business meet-
ing at 10 a.m. to avoid dealing
with morning rush hour traffic
in Pinellas County, Tampa and
Orlando. Three weeks ago, I
spent the night with friends in
the Orlando area so I wouldn't
have to leave here at 7 a.m. or
earlier to get to my meeting.
My company reimbursed me
for mileage for the business
trip, but the expected cost of
riding a train from Tampa to
Orlando would be cheaper.
And just being stuck in Or-
lando afternoon rush-hour
traffic after the meeting, taking
20 minutes to get through one
busy intersection and encoun-
tering heavy traffic elsewhere,
gave me time to think.
Suffice it to say, the experi-
ence was less than invigorat-
ing.

)oYou Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer?
cancer is very common in the sunshine state. The American
cer Society estimates that there are over 1 million cases of skin
er per year in the United States. While most cancers are curable
n treated early, many are detected too late and can be deadly. I
e are 3 main types of skin cancer: Basil Cell Carcinoma (BCC), I
amous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Malignant Melanoma (MM).
tionally, Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are the most common
cancer and may progress into Squamous cell if left untreated. I
al Cell is by far the most common skin cancer, accounting for
ly 80% of all skin cancers in the U.S. Thankfully, these rarely

symptoms. Eventually, they become a sore that bleeds or doesn't I

Ask Dr. Panzarella:

Bad Breath It's a Killer!
~I- ..i ii,..n,,ii .. ...I i ,ii,, was just problem for your confidence, think again.
Bad breath is often caused by the bacteria of gum disease. In fact, periodontal disease
is a common source of halitosis with the odor being so distinctive that many dentist
can diagnose it from the smell alone!
If Your Breath Stinks, Your Health Might Stink Too
Bad breath certainly isn't attractive and it can
harm both relationships and career and while
it is ruining life, it also could be ruining your
health! The bacteria that cause gum disease
don't just stay in your mouth. They can enter
the bloodstream and circulate through your
entire body!
More and more studies are showing critical
links between gum health and whole body
health, not only because high bacteria levels can
compromise your health, but also because of the
byproducts generated. Studies published in the
New 1 T........of Medicine report that the effects from periodontal disease can
cause the liver to make proteins such as C-reactive protein.
This protein is one of the main markers in all kinds of inflammation that can
increase the risk of blood clots and, according to a new study from Harvard,
pancreatic cancer. This study shows that men with gum disease were 63 percent more
likely to develop pancreatic cancer when compared with those h l..... ,i problems.
Gum disease also has direct links to stroke, heart attack, elevated blood sugar and
diabetes, poor circulation, complications during pregnancy, even wrinkles and erectile
dysfunction! It is amazing how much this infection in your mouth can affect the rest
of your body.
Get Fresh Get Beautiful Get Healthy
So freshen up -it might not only save your reputation and keep you from getting as
many wrinkles -it may just save your life!

Sheriff's Office calls prescription drug woes a major problem


By THOMAS MICHALSKI
The head of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office narcotics di-
vision said prescription drugs doled out by pain clinics, shady
doctors and street pushers are killing more than one county
resident each day, and a solution to the ever growing pill prob-
lem will worsen before it gets better.
Capt. Robert Alfonso, a 28-year veteran of the sheriffs office,
16 of them in the narcotics division, said 376 men, women and
children died of prescription drug overdose during fiscal 2008-
09. Another 55 suspected drug overdoses have not yet been de-
termined as such by the Pinellas County Medical Examiner's
Office.
"Combine the two figures and that adds up to more than
400 prescription deaths in one year," Alfonso said.
Worse, Alfonso predicts that once state lawmakers eventual-
ly give law enforcement the tools they need to pull the reins on
prescription drug abuse, those addicted to pain killers such as
oxycodone will then turn to stronger drugs to satisfy their crav-
ings.
To cope with the prescription drug epidemic, which is the
designation many use to term the problem, the Sheriffs Office
launched a new unit within the narcotics squad. Dubbed the
Strategic Diversion Unit, it was created last fall. The 10-person
squad headed by Sgt. Dan Zsido goes after organized groups
that purchase large quantities of legally prescribed drugs for il-
licit distribution to pre-teens, teenagers, adults and even senior
citizens.
'The unit doesn't go after the users," Alfonso said. "We con-
centrate on doctor shoppers, prescription fraud, the pain clin-
ics and doctors who make pain killers and other drugs so
readily available, and organized groups that bring thousands of
pills into Pinellas County each year."
To further fight the pill problems, law enforcement agencies
have formed a countywide task force representing local police
departments such as Largo and Clearwater, the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration, FBI and other government agencies. The
goal is to work together, exchange information and do whatever
it takes to get pills off the streets.

The Sheriffs Office also launched the successful "Operation
Medicine Cabinet" that allows residents to dispose of expired
and other prescription drugs with no questions asked.
The Sheriffs Office has been instrumental in making numer-
ous arrests of organized pill pushers. Three weeks ago two men
and a woman were arrested in Pinellas Park and Treasure Is-
land as part of a major distribution ring that specialized in pain
killers. They allegedly used a network of men and women who
would get prescriptions for back pains and other ailments from
doctors and clinics.
Alfonso said the prescriptions and even false identifications
were created on a laptop computer. The so-called "patients"
would be paid in a small amount of pills from their booty. The
remainder of the pills would be sold on the streets for between
$15 and $20 each.
The fake prescriptions included a doctor's name, an address,
a phone number and even a Drug Enforcement Administration
number. The phone number would always be the same. Calls
to verify prescriptions were answered by the same individual.
In most cases that telephone verification is all that is required
for a drug store to fill a script.
Most combatants in the war against prescription pills are
quick to note that pharmacies used for illicit pill purchases are
smaller operations and not heavy hitters such as Walgreen's
and CVS. Some pain clinics, too, fill prescriptions. The transac-

tions are always cash so the clinics are not under state regula-
tions.
Alfonso said some organized pill operations have up to 200
and even 300 people on their payroll. A good day of doctors
shopping and getting prescriptions filled can net $10,000-a-
day.
'You get a lot of unemployed people in the business," Alfonso
said. "There is big money to be made."
Most pill operations consist of transients who work out of
motel and hotel rooms. Sometimes violence erupts, as in one
case where a doctor shopper thought the operation had cheat-
ed him. The shopper showed up at a motel room, pistol
whipped the occupants and destroyed a laptop computer with
a single gunshot.
The way the pill trade works begins with a list of shady doc-
tors and clinics that see the "patients" and then prescribe pain
killers or other medications. Those folks then write scripts and
are sent to pharmacies and other places that will fill them. The
cash and/or pills are exchanged and everybody goes home
happy.
Everybody, that is, except for the addict.
'There are multi-tier organizations out there that include all
types of people doing different jobs within the group," Alfonso

Roth IRA Conversion:
Is it right for you?
The Roth
l Individual
Retirement
Arrangement
allows for
non-deductible
contributions and tax-
free accumulation and
withdrawals. Beginning in
tax year 2010, you may
regardless of your income,
convert a (tax-deferred)
Traditional IRA to a Roth
IRA. However, should you?
The answer is highly
dependent on the
assumptions you make
regarding tax-rates
applicable on your future
IRA withdrawals should
you chose not to convert.
When you convert a
traditional IRA, you must
pay taxes on the conversion
amount up-front, however,
you do avoid the regular
10% penalty due on
early withdrawals.
Roth IRA conversions can
be complicated. In general,
though, if you expect to
pay a higher tax in the
future on your traditional
IRA withdrawals, then you
should consider doing a
Roth conversion now. In
addition, as a rule, for
maximum benefit, you
should pay for the
conversion taxes with non-
IRA money. For a person
who owns no IRAs, and
makes too much income
to do a direct Roth
contribution, consider
making a non-deductible
Traditional IRA contribution
and then doing a conversion.

Around Pinellas


Tour of Kitchens benefits
the visually impaired
ST. PETERSBURG Snell Isle in old St.
Petersburg has been chosen for the sixth an-
nual Lighthouse of Pinellas Tour of Kitchens
Sunday, April 18, 2 to 6 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit Lighthouse of
Pinellas, a nonprofit agency in Pinellas
County serving individuals who are blind or
visually impaired.
Incorporating both "Then and Now," the
tour will include eight homes some dating
back to the early days of the 20th century
and others built in the first decade of the
21st century. Each home will showcase the
culinary artistry of a local celebrity chef,
who will prepare a favorite recipe to be sam-
pled by guests. Wine and desserts tasting,
and entertainment will round out the after-
noon.
Snell Isle dates to 1899 when C. Perry
Snell, who had traveled throughout Europe
and developed an educated taste for luxuri-
ous living, bought property on a peninsula
bounded by the waters of Coffee Pot Bayou,
Snell Isle Harbor and Tampa Bay. At the
time, St. Petersburg was a small fishing vil-
lage, but Snell could see the potential in the
lushly beautiful waterfront location.
Celebrity chefs on the tour will include
David Earp, John Lewis, Rich Norris, Chris
Ponte, Tom Pritchard, Brian St. Arnold to
name a few.
Bonnie and Tom Strickland are co-chairs
of the event. Tampa Bay Magazine and
Bright House Networks are presenting spon-
sors. For more event information or to pur-
chase tickets, log on to

org or call 544-4433, ext. 235.

County issues notice of
funding availability
Pinellas County expects to receive approx-
imately $5.6 million in federal grant funds
and program income for the fiscal year be-
ginning Oct. 1, 2010.
In addition, approximately $586,000 in
program income from state and local funds
will be available. The source of funds is the
Community Development Block Grant,
HOME Investment Partnership, Emergency
Shelter Grant, State Housing Initiatives
Partnership and Pinellas County Housing
Trust Fund Programs.
County funds may be expended in unin-
corporated areas and all incorporated areas
except St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Largo and
Belleair Shore. HOME funds also will be ex-
pended in the city of Largo as a member of
the Pinellas County Consortium. All pro-
posed projects must either principally bene-
fit income-qualified households or areas
according to regulations governing the grant
source, or eliminate slums and blight.
Funding will be allocated to projects with-
in the county's four major areas of interest:
housing, neighborhood improvements in tar-
geted areas, special district activities, and
facilities serving low and moderate-income
households including special-needs popula-
tions.

Thriller writer to speak
at Largo library May 8
LARGO Best-selling thriller writer and
columnist Lisa Scottoline will discuss her fic-
tion and the writing life when she appears at
the Largo Public Library Saturday, May 8, 1
p.m.
Scottoline's appearance is part of the
Greater Largo Library Foundation's Out-
standing Authors Series. The event is being
sponsored by John and Sidney Goodman,
and the Palms of Largo, a senior living cam-
pus managed by the Goodman Group.
Her thrillers have made her The New York
Times best-selling author of 16 books, in-
cluding "Look Again," "Lady Killer," and "Dirty
Blonde." Her newest thriller, 'Think Twice,"
was just released this month.
"Called 'the female John Grisham,' Scotto-
line crafts thrillers that twist and turn as she
ratchets up the action, always peppering
them with an emotionally charged quest for
justice," said a news release from the Library
Foundation.
"Her provocative tales about an unforget-
table array of ordinary, yet somehow extraor-
dinary, female characters who hang tight
through the breakneck pace of her intense
plots are legendary. In many ways, Scottoline
writes stories about women that happen to
be blockbuster legal thrillers," the release
said.
A lawyer, Scottoline writes a weekly col-
umn for the Philadelphia Inquirer entitled
"Chick Wit," a witty take on life from a
woman's perspective.

said.
That means the shoppers, the sales people
that get rid of the pills and even recruiters who
seek out and hire people for the very shady
business of pill pushing.
While Pinellas County and its surrounding
areas have a major prescription medication
problem, it still is not as great as in the
Broward, Miami and Dade areas. Pinellas
County ranks fourth in the state of illicit pill
pushing. Hillsborough County ranks fifth.
Alfonso, like other law officers, government
agencies and support organizations such as
Narcotics Overdose Prevention Education of
Pinellas County, feels that the state legislature
is just coming around to passing important bills
vital to combat the pill problem.
But are Tallahassee lawmakers doing
enough?
Last year lawmakers approved legislation
that creates electronic monitoring of prescrip-
tion drugs. It will, when finally launched, give
doctors and others the opportunity to track pre-
scriptions and put an end to doctor shopping.
However, lawmakers did not approve any
method of financing the program and left it up
to the bill's advocates to seek federal and pri-
vate funds.
"It will take $1.5 million to launch the elec-
tronic monitoring program and another
$750,000 to $850,000 annually to keep it in op-
eration," Alfonso said.
About 30 states already have a monitoring
operation in existence.
Persons with information regarding the illegal
sale and/or the distribution of prescription
medications are urged to call the Sheriffs Office
at 582-2828 or Crime Stoppers of Pinellas
County at 1-800-873-TIPS.

Morton Plant breaks ground on Axelrod Pavilion


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL
CLEARWATER Morton Plant Hospital has broken ground
on the Axelrod Pavilion, a 103,500-square-foot, four-story
building that will encompass the current Susan Cheek
Needler Breast Center, the Carlisle Imaging Center and the
Comprehensive Breast Care Center of Tampa Bay.
The building also will have offices for the internationally
known surgical oncologists, Dr. Peter Blumencranz and Dr.
Kathleen Allen, who specialize in breast cancer. There also
will be office space for other oncologists.
Patients will only have to go to one building for all their
imaging and breast cancer services except for surgery and
chemotherapy and radiation treatments which will be right
across the street, Blumencranz said.
"The idea is that we need more room, and we want to ex-
pand services for the breast patient," Blumencranz said.
"Often, their care is fragmented."
Currently, breast cancer patients may get sent by their
doctors to get a mammogram at a radiologist practice, then
go back to the primary doctor for a surgeon recommendation
if the mammogram is abnormal. The patient gets a surgical
consult, and then there could be more imaging, consulta-
tions, and then the surgery.
"The beauty of the new center is to have all the imaging,
even advanced technological things with imaging with the
breast as well as the clinical services all under one roof,
which we kind of have now but are limited by space," Blu-
mencranz said.
Breast cancer patients usually want to understand the
spectrum of their care right from the start, Blumencranz said,
and having one location for all their care makes this possible
and easy for the various doctors to consult with one another.
"Our goal is to make it easy for oncology patients so they
can go to one building and have their needs met instead of
having to go from one building to another, and this makes it
a whole lot easier to coordinate their care and provide the
care in a more timely manner," said Glenn Waters, Morton
Plant Mease Health System president.

An artist's rendering shows the concept design for the new
103,500-square-foot Axelrod Pavilion, set to open in May 2011.
Waters said that while the current programs are success-
ful, they have run out of room in their various buildings and
need room to grow their programs.
"(The Axelrod Pavilion) helps us continue to meet our mis-
sion of continuing to serve the community's health needs,
and even with the success of the programs, we have issues
with space, and the new space will allow us to continue to
meet the community's needs," Waters said.
The building is being built on the empty lot off of Pinellas
Street, across from the Wellness Center and is set to be com-
pleted in May 2011.
Blumencranz said that the building will allow for much-
needed expansions of the Susan Cheek Needler Breast Cen-
ter. For instance, mammography has transitioned from film
to digital, and while this is much more efficient and conve-
nient, the current problem is having the proper work stations
and screens to view the mammograms.
"It's much easier to have a designated work station to look
at images," Blumencranz said. "A little laptop just doesn't do


it when you're trying to analyze breast imaging. So the idea of
the new center would be to move all the electronics that are
happening and have these displays in each contact room with
the patient. It's available in the digital department, but also
those same displays will be available even in the exam room."
The new building also will make multidisciplinary planning
for the patients even easier, where the surgeons, medical on-
cologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and
radiation therapists all can meet to discuss a patient's care,
Blumencranz said. Morton Plant already does this, he said,
but it will be more efficient now that most all of those doctors
will be in the same building or at least across the street from
one another.
Another efficiency the new building will allow for is to have
all the related equipment in the same place, Blumencranz
said. The Susan Cheek building is packed, he said, so there
isn't room for large equipment such as an MRI machine.
This is a minimally invasive sampling, he said, but if a fa-
cility doesn't have that capability, the patient is left worrying
about the abnormal MRI until she can get to someplace that
can take a sample and then wait for the results. Morton
Plant currently has this capability, Blumencranz said, but it
is in a different building than the current breast services due
to lack of space. However, only specialized breast MRI radiol-
ogists are capable of reading them, so the images must be
currently sent back to the Susan Cheek center to be read,
whereas in the new building, all the equipment and doctors
will be in the same place and patients won't have to wait and
worry.
Extra space will be reserved for emerging technologies,
Blumencranz said, which will be looked at in more detail as
the end date of construction nears. Other space in the build-
ing will be for other oncologists and doctors. The entire first
floor will be for the Carlisle Imaging Center and Susan Cheek
Needler Breast Center, both of which will keep their current
names. The second floor will be for Blumencranz's and
Allen's offices as well as some other oncologist physicians.
The third floor also will be for oncologists, and the fourth
floor is not fully committed, Waters said.

Opening this week

Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence team up in the comedy 'Death at a Funeral'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

A number of new movie re-
leases will hit theaters this
week, including the following
films opening in wide release:


'Death at a Funeral'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Chris Rock, Martin
Lawrence, Tracy Morgan,
Danny Glover, Regina Hall
and James Marsden
Director: Neil LaBute
Rated: R
Directed by Neil LaBute,
"Death at a Funeral" is a hi-
larious day in the life of an
American family that has
come together to put a
beloved husband and father
to rest.
As mourners gather at the
family home, shocking revela-
tions, festering resentments,
ugly threats, blackmail and a
misdirected corpse unleash
lethal and riotous mayhem.

'Kick-Ass'
Genre: Action and adven-
ture
Cast: Aaron Johnson,


Christopher Mintz-Plasse,
Mark Strong, Chloe Grace
Moretz and Nicolas Cage
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Rated: R
"How come nobody's ever
tried to be a superhero?"
When Dave Lizewski- ordi-
nary New York teenager and
rabid comic-book geek dons a
green-and-yellow Internet-
bought wetsuit to become the
no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-
Ass, he soon finds an answer
to his own question: because
it hurts.
But, overcoming all the
odds, the eager yet inexperi-
enced Dave quickly becomes
a phenomenon, capturing the
imagination of the public.
However, he's not the only
superhero out there the
fearless and highly-trained fa-
ther-daughter crime-fighting
duo, Big Daddy and Hit-Girl
have been slowly but surely
taking down the criminal em-
pire of local Mafioso, Frank
D'Amico. And, as Kick-Ass
gets drawn into their no-
holds-barred world of bullets
and bloodletting with Frank's
son, Chris, now reborn as
Kick-Ass's arch-nemesis, Red


Mist the stage is set for a
final showdown between the
forces of good and evil in
which the DIY hero will have
to live up to his name ... or
die trying.

The following will open in
limited release.

'The Joneses'
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: David Duchovny,
Demi Moore, Amber Heard,
Gary Cole and Ben
Hollingsworth
Director: Derrick Borte
Rated: R
If ever there was a film that
was perfectly attuned to the
current Zeitgeist, it would be
'The Joneses."
First-time writer/director
Derrick Borte imbues a seri-
ous core theme the wobbly
undercurrents of a frenetic
consumer culture with
humor, warmth and shots of
clever, zesty fun.
Demi Moore and David
Duchovny star as a seemingly
perfect couple who, along
with their equally perfect
teenagers Amber Heard and
Ben Hollingsworth move
into an upscale gated com-
munity. The Joneses have
better goods and game than
any other family in town.

tale of how a sandlot baseball team finds it-
self on a once-in-a lifetime journey.
Originally armed with the dream of playing
one Little League game on U.S. soil, the
young team members defy a total lack of re-
sources, disapproving parents, and wide-
spread prejudice as they travel across the
border to Southern Texas, and beyond. Rely-

Williamsport, Penn., where a miracle will ce-
ment their place in history and change their

With "The Secret in Their Eyes," Argen-
tinean writer-director-editor Juan Jose
Campanella has created a multi-layered
and poignant thriller interweaving the per-
sonal lives of a state prosecution investiga-
tor and a judge, with a manhunt spanning
25 years.
Recently retired criminal court investiga-
tor Benjamin (Ricardo Darin), decides to
write a novel based on a 25 year old unre-
solved rape and murder case, which still
haunts him. Sharing his plans with Irene
(Soledad Villamil), the beautiful judge and
former colleague he has secretly been in
love with for years, Benjamin's initial in-
volvement with the case is shown through
flashbacks, as he sets out to identify the
murderer. But Benjamin's search for the
truth will put him at the center of a judicial
nightmare, as the mystery of the heinous
crime continues to unfold in the present,
testing the limits of a man seeking justice
and personal fulfillment at last.

SHS band to benefit
from Good News Card
SEMINOLE The Seminole High School
marching band is participating in the Good
News Card program as part of its efforts to
raise money for its trip to the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade in November.
The program is a "pay it forward" con-

formation, charity code and the time of
purchase.
Vendors have agreed in advance to do-
nate a percentage of the total purchase,
before sales tax to the band. Once a
month, the band will receive a check back
based on the total sales received.
Participating vendors include B Squared
Automotive, Adam and Eve Day Spa, Jim's
Body Shop, Inside Homes Carpeting Clean-
ing, Lee W. Schafer, Esquire; Seminole
Towing and Autoway Toyota.

Do you have charley horses, night cramps, swelling, varicose veins, "secondary restless
legs syndrome," tired or heavy legs? You may be at risk for PVD (Peripheral Vein Disease).
Paid by Medicare and most insurance.
"We Changed Her Life" An actual testimonial from one of our patients...
Dr. Mountcastle,
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! i - i -

Parents urged to enroll
kids in school early
Pinellas County Schools' student assign-
ment office urges parents of incoming
kindergartners and all new students for the
2010-11 school year to register their chil-
dren now so the district can better plan for
next year's school assignments and trans-
portation routing.
To register a child, follow these steps in
this order:
Step 1: Find your zoned school Parents
should look up their zoned school by using
the zone school locator on the district Web
site, www.pcsb.org under the "PCS News"
tab. Parents may call the student assign-
ment office at 588-6210 if they don't have
access to a computer.
Step 2: Reserve a seat To reserve a seat
at the child's zoned school, parents should
go to their zoned school or any nearby
school to get a user ID and password if they
don't already have one for another child in
their family. Using a computer, parents may
log into the student reservation system
found on the home page of the Web site.
Step 3: Register at your child's zoned
school For parents to complete registra-
tion, they must visit the assigned school and


deliver the final required documents. New
students entering middle or high school
should call the assigned school to determine
when registration can be completed. Re-
quired documents include: Birth certificate
or other proof of identity and age; proof of
residency; the child's social security number
(optional); Florida's certificate of immuniza-
tion; physical examination certificate within
the last 12 months.
The open enrollment period is April 19 to
30, where parents who would like to request
another school, other than the one their
child has been assigned, will have the oppor-
tunity to request a change. There will be a
limited number of seats available for the
coming year due to class size and No Child
Left Behind requirements. Only those stu-
dents who are already enrolled in a school
can participate in the open enrollment pro-
gram.
Classes are to begin on Tuesday, Aug. 24,
and kids must be age 5 on or before Sept. 1,
2010 to attend kindergarten.
Call 588-6210 or visit www.pcsb.org.

other marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon keeping the
order fulfillment process simple and unified.
GEMaffair.com was established by Michael Jansma in 1996.
The company specializes in fine jewelry, watches, and acces-
sories for both men and women.

sales online. They also sell direct to consumers on third party
sites such as Amazon and eBay.

There are many things to
consider when selecting food
for your pet. Reading the
label and understanding
what it means will help you
in selecting the proper diet for
your pet.
The first thing to look for
on any bag or can of pet food
is the AAFCO statement. This
is usually a very small para-
graph written in fine print.
The term AAFCO stands for
the Association of American
Feed Control Officials. The
AAFCO statement required to
appear on all pet food pack-
aging standardizes the way
pet food manufacturers must
produce, label, distribute and
sell pet food.
The first portion of the
AAFCO statement may say
one of two things, either the
diet is formulated or it has
gone through feeding trials.
To ensure that your pet's diet
is going to do what it says on
the bag, then it should have
gone through feeding trials.
For example, if you select a
growth formula for your
puppy you want to be sure it
was tested on puppies and
that these puppies grew at
the appropriate rate while
being fed this diet. Formulat-
ed means the diet was formu-
lated on a computer and
never went through any feed-
ing trials.
The other portion of the
AAFCO statement will tell you
what life stage of your pet the
diet is intended for. You want
to be sure that is has a spe-
cific life stage such as
puppy/growth, adult/mainte-
nance, or senior/mature. If it
says "for all life stages" then
this diet is not recommended
for adult or senior pets. In
order for the label to say "for
all life stages" it has to be for-
mulated for puppies.
When looking at the per-
centages of the nutrients like
crude protein, crude fiber,
crude fat, etc., you need to
know that these are "As Fed"
percentages. Therefore, you
cannot compare one bag to
another using these percent-
ages. In order to compare
these percentages from one
bag to another you need to
convert these percentages
into "Dry Matter" percent-
ages. In order to do this you
must know the moisture con-
tent.
Example: Crude protein


Speaking of Pets
Kim Donovan, D.V.M.


percentage on the bag says
25 percent; moisture percent-
age on the bag says 11 per-
cent. To calculate protein into
a dry matter basis we would
subtract the moisture from
100 percent of the diet 100
percent diet minus 11 per-
cent moisture equals 89 per-
cent dry matter.
Now, to calculate the crude
protein into a dry matter
basis we divide the percent-
age of protein by 89 percent
of dry diet 25 percent divid-
ed by 89 percent equals 0.28;
then we multiply by 100 per-
cent and we get 28 percent
crude protein on a dry matter
basis.
If you have another diet
you want to compare with
this one then you must cal-
culate those percentages into
a dry matter basis in order to
compare them. The reason
you can't compare diets that
are in an "As Fed" basis is be-
cause each diet has a differ-
ent percentage of moisture.
Knowing about the AAFCO
statement and knowing how
to compare one diet to anoth-
er by comparing them on a
dry matter basis should help
you select a better diet for
your pet.
If you have any concerns or
questions about the food you
feed your pet, your veterinari-
an is the best source for this
information. If your veterinar-
ian doesn't recommend a cer-
tain diet for your pet, then
ask what the best diet would
be for your pet.
Kim Donovan, D.V.M. is an
associate veterinarian at
Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital
in Seminole with 12 years ex-
perience and a special interest
in feline medicine.

Bowlful of feline


Leo was adopted from the SPCA in 1998. His owner, Cher
Talon of St. Petersburg, originally bought this bowl for a plant,
but when she took it out of the bag and placed it on her dining
room table, Leo curled up inside. It has been his bowl ever
since. As the winning Pet Connection photo, Talon wins a $25
gift certificate to Largo Feed. Next month's photo winner will
receive a gift basket from Lake Seminole Animal Hospital.

Beacon, April 15, 2010 Outdoors 27


The arrival of baitfish into our back waters
signifies a change is in the air.
Spring has sprung and the fishing is finally
going to get really good for the next few
months.
The Span-
ish mackerel Fish Tales
are already Capt. Tyson
here and Wallerstein
chewing rav-
enously on
schools of
glass minnows. Now that the threadfins, aka
greenbacks, and scaled sardines, aka white-
bait, are in the mix it will only attract more
mackerel and in turn kingfish.
The water temperature is right at 70 degrees
off the beach and a couple degrees cooler a few
miles off-shore, so our push of kingfish should
be here any day. By this weekend anglers who
want to target kings should keep it close.
Anchor or slow troll around hard-bottom
areas no more than a mile or two off the
beach. Another spot that is primed to go off
would have to be the shipping channel. Mark-
ers five and seven are usual spots to target
schoolie kings in the spring.


Cobia are real targets right now. Whether
you're grouper fishing or king fishing, be
ready with a rod rigged that you can cast a
live pinfish a good distance. We've encoun-
tered three cobia in the past week and we
were finally able to hook and catch one over
the weekend.
Grouper fishing was good this past week-
end. Fishing 30 to 50 feet of water was the
ticket for the gags. Use plenty of frozen sar-
dines to get the bite going. Once you reel up a
couple of gags that are close, draw down a
frisky pinfish and hold on. The live bait ac-
counted for all our keepers, signifying that the
fish are more active than they were even a
week ago when frozen sardines caught most
of the fish.
Inshore, trout remain the best bet with
some better redfish action expected with the
up-coming new moon. Target trout along
sharp drop-offs on the edges of the flats. Low
tide has been the key as it will really concen-
trate the fish on the edge. Live select shrimp
are hard to beat, but after seeing some of the
big fish we've been catching on small grass
grunts, I'll definitely take the grunts.
Until next week get bent!
