Dubov: Foreclosures still a problem

First quarter of 2010 sees increase in sales of single-family homes
i I


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Pam Dubov is get-
ting used to being the bearer of bad
news.
Most recently, the Pinellas County
Property Appraiser told members of
the Seminole Chamber of Commerce
that foreclosures continue to be a
problem in the county, driving mar-
ket values down while taxable val-
ues, or cap values, continue to rise.
'There are actually more foreclo-
sures in Pinellas County than what
appears on the Clerk of the Court's
records," she said during an April 15
luncheon. 'They involve condos pri-
marily and it occurs because lenders


don't want to take them back and
have to pay condo association dues."
All of this leads to a strong buyers
market but most families can't af-
ford to purchase because so many
are unemployed.
Still, the first quarter of 2010 saw
an increase in the sale of single-fam-
ily homes in the county from the
same period a year ago, Dubov said.
In the first quarter of 2009, there
were 395 sales at a median price of
$155,000. During the first quarter of
this year, home sales were up 24
percent to 490, but the median price
dropped 17 percent to $128,000.

Hundreds


expected


at Relay


For Life
By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE The battle against
cancer will take shape locally in the
form of the annual Relay For Life
event beginning Friday, April 23, 6
p.m., at Osceola High School, 9751
98th St. N.
Between 600 and 800 participants
on 39 teams are expected for the
event that continues through Satur-
day, April 24, 10 a.m.
Teams continuously have a repre-
sentative walking around the school
track during the 16-hour vigil to
honor cancer survivors, bring aware-
ness to the dangers of cancer and
raise research money for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
Teams have been given goals to
raise various amounts of money for
the cause.
Last year's Seminole Relay raised
$89,000 after expenses. It was the
most money raised out of 19 events
in Pinellas County and represented
11 percent of the $800,000 raised in
the county.
This year's goal is $92,000, said
Joan Hannay, chairwoman of the
Seminole event.
"We had 22 teams last year and
we have 39 right now," Hannay said
late last week. "(The Seminole event)
has taken on a life of its own. Partic-
ipation is the best in Pinellas County
and we have twice as many cancer
survivors scheduled from a year
ago."
As the sun goes down, hundreds
of luminaria, paper sacks filled with
sand and candles, light the way for
walkers following a moment of si-
lence during a ceremony of remem-
brance.
"We're walking through the night
in the same manner a cancer patient
would go through treatment," said
Hannay. "There's darkness at the
beginning of treatment, which turns
to light when the disease is beaten."

Earth Day event focuses on seagrass awareness


Tampa Bay Watch and Pinellas County will
host a public awareness event on Earth Day,
Thursday, April 22 to introduce new speed zone
signs that are being placed at local boat ramps
and marinas to heighten the awareness of pro-
tecting seagrasses and manatees.
A total of 100 signs are expected to be posted
in this collaborative campaign as boating season
gets under way.
Karen Williams Seel, chair of the Pinellas
County Board of Commissioners; Peter Clark,
executive director of Tampa Bay Watch; and Pam
Leasure, land manager for Pinellas County Envi-
ronmental Land, are expected to attend the 10
a.m. ceremony at the Fort De Soto boat ramp.
The signs remind boaters to follow regulatory
speeds and to avoid the seagrass beds.
Boat propellers damage the seagrass beds and


safe boating is crucial to the preservation of sea-
grass, scallop and manatee populations.
The signs are being funded by the Pinellas
County Tourist Development Council.
Over the past 100 years, Tampa Bay has lost
more than 80 percent of its seagrass beds due
mostly to wastewater discharges and dredging
for port and residential waterfront development.
This loss has severed a crucial link in the bay's
food chain for fish and wildlife resources, caus-
ing the collapse of the bay's scallop and oyster
fisheries and major declines in bait and food
shrimp, spotted sea trout and red drum.
In Tampa Bay, seagrasses are mostly found
along the shoreline fringe, barely exceeding a 2-
meter depth. Seagrass coverage in Tampa Bay
has slowly been increasing and it is estimated
that there are now nearly 28,000 acres. This in-


crease in seagrass coverage is mostly due to bay-
wide water quality improvements and reduced
dredging and filling along with educational pro-
grams aimed at the importance of the beds and
responsible boating.
The cold winter has resulted in a devastating
number of cold-related manatee deaths in Flori-
da which makes it even more important for
boaters to be extra vigilant in watching for man-
atees in shallow waters near the coast, both in-
land and coastal, and obeying all posted
manatee speed zone signs.
To report manatee sightings, call the Pinel-
las County Manatee Watch Line at 464-4077.
To report an injured or dead manatee, imme-
diately contact Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's 24-hour hotline at
888-404-3922.

Community gardens focus of public hearings by county


By SUZETTE PORTER
Community gardens are gaining in popularity throughout
the United States, and Pinellas County is no exception.
County commissioners, sitting as the Countywide Planning
Authority, scheduled two public hearings, May 18 and June 1,
on a proposed rule amendment regarding agricultural and
community garden uses.
The May 18 meeting will take place during the public hearing
portion of the commission's regularly scheduled meeting, start-
ing at 6:30 p.m., in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the County
Courthouse, 315 Court St. in Clearwater. The June 1 public
hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m.
According to a staff report, the proposed amendment would
allow agricultural uses in the residential low and residential
urban Countywide Plan Map categories and allow community
gardens in all categories.
'These amendments would address issues with the current
rules raised by the city of Pinellas Park and Pinellas County
with regard to agricultural uses," the report said.
Pinellas Park and Pinellas County allow agricultural uses in
residential low and residential urban categories to accommo-
date specific needs of the community.
For example, Pinellas Park allows horses to be kept on sin-
gle-family lots.
Since 2007, the Pinellas Planning Council has been working
with municipalities in an effort to create consistencies between
local governments' comprehensive plans and land development
regulations and countywide rules.
In February of 2009, the CPA adopted an ordinance amend-
ing the countywide rules to address multiple consistency is-
sues, including an amendment allowing agricultural use as a
primary use in the residential suburban category.
A report from the Pinellas Planning Council said, "In our dis-
cussions with local jurisdictions about the remaining issues to
be addressed in association with the updated determinations of
consistency, the PPC staff has concluded that it would be ap-
propriate to recommend amendments to the rules, allowing

agricultural uses in the residential low and residential urban
categories."
The PPC approved the recommended changes to the county-
wide rules on March 17, and county staff concurred.
The proposed amendment defines a community garden as
"uses that share a single piece of land gardened collectively by
a group of people in contrast to an individual's personal garden
on a single lot. ... They may be 'publicly' functioning in terms of
ownership, access and/or management, as well as owned in
trust by local governments and nonprofits."
The PAC gave as an example the city of Dunedin, who work-
ing with a group of residents to develop a community garden in
an open area near a city tennis court, fire station and other in-
stitutional uses.
Staff gave several benefits of community gardening, includ-
ing providing access to fresh produce and plants, as well as en-
couraging neighborhood improvement and a sense of
community, recreation and connection to the environment.
The PAC staff also recommends amending the rules to allow
community garden uses as a second use in the


recreation/open space category, thus making it allowable in all
categories.
Staff said that some local governments including Safety Har-
bor, St. Petersburg, as well as Pinellas County have already
amended land use regulations to allow for community gardens
in multiple future land use plan categories.
"The proposed amendments to the countywide rules are
broader than these local governments' regulations, allowing
further refinement by each local government as they see fit,"
the PAC said in a separate report.
County officials expect that additional local governments will
take action to allow community gardens and the county's
amendment to the rules would "provide flexibility for each local
government to amend their local plans and land development
regulations to permit the use of community gardens as they
determine appropriate."

Tallahassee CC educator named St.


By BOB McCLURE

LARGO A lengthy selection process
came to a close April 13 when members of
the St. Petersburg College Board of Trustees
voted unanimously to select William D. Law
as the school's next president.
Law, 61, is the cur-
rent president of Talla-
hassee Community
College and replaces for-
mer SPC president Carl
Kuttler who retired Dec.
31.
He is expected to
begin his new duties
once a contract is nego- l 1
tiated. Those talks will William Law
begin this week.
Board members Evelyn Billirakis, Ter-
rence Brett, Ken Burke, Deveron Gibbons
and Richard Johnston chose Law over
Thomas Keegan, president of Peninsula Col-
lege in Port Angeles, Wash.
An earlier vote unanimously eliminated
the other two finalists Paula Gastenveld,
assistant to the chancellor for workforce de-
velopment for the Kentucky Community and
Technical College System, Versailles, Ky.;
and Kaye Walter, executive vice president
and chief learning officer at Valencia Com-
munity College, Orlando.
"I have been the president of three differ-
ent community colleges, each one increas-
ingly more complex and sophisticated," Law
said in his application for the SPC presiden-


cy. 'The opportunity to advance to the 'top
rung' on the professional ladder at an insti-
tution as complex and multi-dimensional as
SPC is exciting and enticing."
Law, who earlier in his career served as
vice president for instructional and program
planning at St. Petersburg Junior College,
was the choice based on his broad range of
experience and familiarity with the area and
state.
He also is a colleague of SPC Seminole
Campus Provost Jim Olliver, who took Law's
position when Law left SPJC in 1988.
"Either one (of the two finalists) would
have been great," said Olliver. "Bill is an out-
standing professional. St. Petersburg College
is very lucky to have someone the great cal-
iber of Dr. Law."
Scott Daniels, a member of SPC's presi-
dential search advisory committee, said the
selection was "no surprise."
Prior to Tallahassee Community College,
Law served as president of Montgomery Col-
lege in Houston, Texas and Lincoln Land
Community College in Springfield, Ill.
While at Montgomery College, his respon-
sibilities included planning, managing and
implementing a $50 million construction
budget and directing a national recruitment
effort for more than 200 faculty members.
While at Tallahassee, Law served as assis-
tant to the vice chancellor of the Florida
Board of Regents and later became the staff
director for the Florida House of Representa-
tive's Committee on Higher Education.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in


English from LeMo

City moves ahead on upgrades


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE The process of making im-
provements to the city's fleet maintenance
building moved forward April 13 when the
City Council gave City Manager Frank Ed-
munds approval to negotiate a design con-
tract.
McCarthy and Associates, a Clearwater-
based structural engineering consulting
firm, was the recent selection for design
work on the project following a public re-
quest for qualifications, which drew three
responses.
The building, located at 11195 70th Ave.,
was constructed in two phases in the early
1980s and 1991. Engineers have since de-
termined it contains structural deficiencies
that need to be corrected to make the facility
more weather-resistant.
Funding for the improvements will be de-
termined after a cost is set.
In other action, councilors:
Approved spending up to $3,000 from
the Capital Improvement Fund for three new
ping pong tables at the Recreation Center.


Four estimates range in price from $649 to
$892 delivered.
Approved spending up to $10,000 from
the Capital Improvement Fund for cabinets
in the Arts and Crafts Studio.
Approved co-sponsorship of the Semi-
nole Kiwanis Club's Every Child a Swimmer
program through April 29 at the Seminole
Recreation Center swimming pool. The city
donates the use of the pool for the program.
Agreed to co-sponsor with the Seminole
Chamber of Commerce the annual Kids Ap-
preciation Day June 9, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., at
Seminole City Park.
Granted the Seminole Chamber of Com-
merce a one-day permit to sell alcoholic bev-
erages during Celebration Seminole
Saturday, May 1, at 7770 Seminole Blvd.
The annual audit of city finances for the
2009 tax year ending Sept. 30 indicated the
city is in very sound financial condition. The
city now has a 4.5-month reserve in the
general fund, as opposed to a 3.5-month re-
serve after fiscal year 2008. The city's emer-
gency fund increased $525,000 to $4.12
million.

DUBOV, from page 1


Condo sales stayed about even. During the
first three months of 2009, the county record-
ed 320 sales at a median price of $120,000,
compared to 318 sales in 2010 at a median
price of $90,000, a decrease of 25 percent.
"When values drop, it results in lower tax
bills if cities don't increase millage rates and
last year Seminole didn't increase millage,"
said Dubov. "But it will get tougher to do for
all municipalities across the county."
She said the final numbers are still in the
works but the preliminary figures indicate the
city of Seminole will see an 11 to 12 percent
drop in taxable values from a year ago.
However, the hit on Seminole's budget will
not be as bad as it sounds because ad val-
orem tax revenue makes up only 18 percent
of the city's revenue.
Assuming city tax revenue drops 12 percent
for fiscal year 2011, the city will lose
$328,329, or 2 percent, from its current $15.6
million budget.
Taxable values are based on the values of
homes sold in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Dubov explained that tax values do not de-
cline at the same rate as market values.
"Due to (the) Save Our Homes (tax cap),
we're going to see increases in tax values even


though there's a drop in market value," she
said. "It's very frustrating for homeowners and
I feel that frustration as well."
On another note, Dubov said she favors
passage of Amendment 3 on the November
ballot.
If Florida voters approve the measure, own-
ers of property that does not qualify for a
homestead exemption could see a tax break.
The assessed value of such "non-homestead"
property cannot increase more than 10 per-
cent a year, according to the state Constitu-
tion.
Amendment 3 would change that limit to 5
percent. It would also provide an additional
$25,000 homestead exemption for property
taxpayers who haven't owned a principal resi-
dence over the past eight years.
Dubov said the current 10 percent annual
cap on non-homesteaded is an inequity in the
system and needs to be fixed.
"I'm going to vote for it (Amendment 3),"
she said. "It would produce a more equitable
system by getting non-homesteaded people
closer to the homesteaded (3 percent annual
cap).
"I don't see how we get to a better place
until we do things to help Florida small busi-
ness," Dubov added. "How many restaurants
are empty? How many storefronts?"


Councilors discuss future


of proposed senior center


By BOB McCLUREI

SEMINOLE Plans for the city's proposed
Senior Activities Center still remain a possibility
but it will be a few years if it happens.
Among the topics discussed during the City
Council's April 10 workshop was priorities for
the city's share of future Penny for Pinellas
funds.
Beginning in fiscal year 2014, after the city
has paid off its remaining debt from the Recre-
ation Center, Seminole's annual debt service
will drop considerably to $713,659 per year,
leaving the door open for additional capital pro-
jects using Penny for Pinellas funds.
Between fiscal years 2014 and 2020, the
city's fund balance is expected to grow from
$1.75 million to $5.1 million.
'What I'm hearing and heard during my (re-
election) campaign is that people are still look-
ing for the senior center," said Councilor Thom
Bamhorn. "I would like to see us keep that on
our list."
A senior center was added to the list four
years ago. Plans have been drawn for convert-
ing the current Public Works building at Semi-
nole City Park into a senior facility after the new
Public Works buildings open on 70th Avenue.
However, the plan has never been imple-
mented due to a lack of funding for an opera-
tions staff.
"After 2014, we should be able to afford this
project from a construction standpoint," said
City Manager Frank Edmunds, "but not an op-
erational standpoint."
Edmunds said the cost to operate the center
would be about $225,000 per year and noted
that the city's current senior activities area in
the Seminole Recreation Center gets minimal
use.
"We have 1,500 residents at Seminole Gar-
dens and only 200 to 250 participate in our or-
ganized activities," said Councilor Jim Quinn.
"It's going to happen wherever you're at."
Edmunds concluded that the city would be
best served by better marketing the senior ac-
tivities now available at the Recreation Center
before pursuing an additional facility.
City officials also discussed using Penny for
Pinellas funds for the construction of a skate-
board park, which will be discussed further at a
future workshop.
Other discussions centered on the possibility
of a celebration tied to the city's 40th birthday
this year.
Councilor Leslie Waters suggested something
tied in through the Seminole Historical Society.
"I think we should tie it in through the Bright
Before Your Eyes Parade (in November) and
provide some type of handout, like a keychain,"
said Councilor John Counts.
Edmunds said city staff would put together a


plan based on the discussion.
Councilors also discussed the possibility of
eliminating the invocation at City Council meet-
ings.
Barnhorn said he favored keeping it and Wa-
ters suggested a 90-second time limit.
Councilor Patricia Plantamura agreed.
"It's a tradition we need to maintain," Planta-
mura said. "I really like the individuality it al-
lows."
"I would recommend having a professional
provide it," said Counts, "because it would be
an opportunity to provide a community ser-
vice."
He said councilors, when their turn in the ro-
tation comes along, could make the decision.
"I like that councilors are involved," said Wa-
ters. "But maybe on certain occasions we could
have clergy come in."
After additional discussion, councilors decid-
ed to leave things status quo with a three-
minute time limit.
There also was discussion about whether to
allow questions from city councilors at meetings
following citizen comments.
'Traditionally, we've never done this," said
Mayor Jimmy Johnson.
"I think the comments should be limited to
city business and not a political forum as it was
used by a couple of candidates during the last
campaign," said Barnhorn. 'That being said, I
think we should not respond to them."
"I think we should respond to them, if noth-
ing else just to say thanks for your thoughts,"
said Plantamura. "Some interaction is neces-
sary."
"Maybe we could be more consistent, noting
that staff will get back to them," said Councilor
Bob Matthews.
David Kelley, a faculty member with the
Florida Institute of Government at the Universi-
ty of South Florida and the facilitator of the
workshop, said it is important for government
leaders to have full control of meetings "be-
cause we've had cases lately of meetings getting
out of hand."
'Their three minutes should not be impeded
and there should be no questions afterward be-
cause that leads to debate and can quickly get
out of control," Kelley said.
Councilors concluded they would leave the
current three-minute forum for citizens with no
interaction. City staff will obtain the names and
addresses of speakers and, if necessary, fol-
lowup to their requests.

Correction
The Bay Pines Mobile Home Park proper-
ty is being brokered by the Eshenbaugh
Land Co. in Tampa. A recent story listed
another company.

- Police beat


Treasure Island man hit by car
TREASURE ISLAND A 62-year-old Treasure Island man
was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with critical in-
juries April 14 following a pedestrian-car crash in the 9600
block of Gulf Boulevard.
According to a city release, a 2001 green Hyundai was travel-
ing northbound on Gulf Boulevard when Wilbur Clamon was
struck by the vehicle while attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard.
The driver of the Hyundai was 65-year-old Daniel Nelson of
Brooksville.
Nelson was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time of the
crash and sustained minor injuries. He was transported to
Palm's of Pasadena Hospital for treatment and released a short
time later.
Witnesses said Clamon was outside of the marked crosswalk
area and crossing in violation of traffic control devices. Exces-
sive speed does not appear to be a factor, and no charges are
pending against the driver.

Madeira man charged
with lewd, lascivious battery
LARGO A Madeira Beach man was arrested on April 15
and charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on
a child under age 16 and contributing to the delinquency of a
child.
Pinellas County sheriffs detectives with the Crime Against
Children Unit began an investigation into the incident two
weeks ago. According to a report from the sheriffs office, the
14-year-old victim was left in the custody of the suspect and
his wife in February 2009 by the victim's father who had to
travel out of state for employment.
The sexual abuse began shortly afterward, and stopped in
June 2009 when the victim's father returned to Florida, the re-
port said. Detectives said it also is alleged that the suspect on
more than one occasion, gave the victim marijuana and com-

mitted lewd and lascivious acts against her.
The victim just recently disclosed to her father what had oc-
curred, and he contacted the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office to
report the abuse on March 30.
Michael W. Ritner, 46, was arrested at 11 a.m. at the Sheriffs
Office Administration Building in Largo. He was released on
bonds totaling $20,150 at 6:30 p.m. the same day.
The report said since the victim is an 14-year-old female,
who is known to the suspect, per Florida statute, no further de-
tails will be released that would tend to identify the victim. The
investigation continues.

Registration starts for Explorer Academy
Registration is under way for the Pinellas County Sheriffs
fifth annual Explorer Academy on Monday, June 14 through
Friday, June 18, 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The academy is an opportunity to learn about the field of law
enforcement and Exploring.
All applicants will go through a background check and will
be required to meet a list of minimum standards. The applica-
tion deadline is May 14.
Applicants will receive confirmation of their acceptance, at
which time a $25 registration fee will be required to reserve a
seat. Visit www.post900.com.

a male passenger from Fat Daddy's Bar in Dunedin, the Clear-
water Police report said. He drove about one mile to a parking
lot behind a strip mall in the 25700 block of U.S. 19 N. and
stopped his taxi cab. Shortly after he parked, surveillance video
from area businesses show the male passenger exit the cab and
approach the driver's side door, where the male temporarily
moves out of view, the report said. The male is then seen run-
ning back and forth around the vehicle.
Around 7:30 a.m., LaGrand was found shot to death in his
taxi cab, the report said. His wallet was found underneath his
body with all of the cash gone.
The suspect is a male, possibly Hispanic, in his early 20s. He
is between 5-foot, 7-inches and 5-feet, 9-inches tall with a thin
build and short, dark hair. He was last seen wearing shorts and
an oversized white T-shirt with a black skull design and red
roses across the upper back, skeleton hands on the front upper
shoulder areas and red roses on the front mid-section.
Video of the suspect is available at www.youtube.com/clear

Two injured in moped vs. van crash
SAFETY HARBOR Two people were injured in a van versus
moped crash in Safety Harbor on April 16.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report, Allen Chmiel-
weski of Largo, the driver of a delivery van, was driving west
alone on Salem Place, which turns into Marshall Street. Sally
Stotzer, 19, of Clearwater was driving a moped south on
Philippe Parkway approaching Marshall Street with Katherine
Brosseau, 18, of Safety Harbor as a passenger. The two vehicles
collided in the intersection.
No fault had yet been determined, though the investigation is

Editorial


Kudos for Crist


Governor Charlie Crist did the right thing.
Accused of kowtowing to the teachers' union
and flip-flopping on his own political party's
key legislation, Crist wisely vetoed the ill-con-
ceived Senate Bill 6, also known as an educa-
tion reform bill.
The bill incensed educators
statewide and for good reason.
Teachers, school boards and par-
ents were not involved in the
process of drafting the legislation
from the get-go. Lawmakers were
more concerned about making a
statement than they were about
adopting a bill that would provide
meaningful improvement in educa-
tion. r .
The worst provision of the bill Charlie
called for teachers' salaries in part
to be tied to students' tests scores and learn-
ing gains.
Left unexplained by legislators is what crite-
ria will be used to ensure that teachers evalua-
tions are fair across the board.
Is it really fair and reasonable to expect all
teachers in every setting to improve test scores
and student performance?
Some teachers are no more than baby-sit-
ters in certain classrooms, which, sadly, can
be battle zones. How can a teacher administer-
ing a test to a group of special needs children
be expected to improve their scores if the
teacher can't get the students to sit still long
enough to take an important test? How can a
teacher who has several students from broken
or impoverished families be expected to im-
prove their performances if their parents can't
even be persuaded to make sure their chil-


dren's prescriptions are filled or that they even
get to school?
Why is testing, such as the FCAT, already
criticized for being emphasized too much in
the schools, considered such an clear-cut
means in evaluating whether teachers are
doing their jobs?
Student testing does not measure
1 a teacher's enthusiasm, nor does it
show how much time and energy a
teacher dedicates to his or her pro-
fession at school or beyond the class-
room.
How will the new evaluation crite-
ria take into account whether teach-
ers are innovative, or have worked
: .s with their fellow faculty members or
rst superiors to improve student perfor-
mance? Would the legislation take
into account what efforts teachers have
reached out to parents or taken other mea-
sures to help students?
State Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Treasure Island,
who bucked his party in voting against the bill,
said he felt "this bill came on the Legislature
too fast, too quick without the input of the par-
ties it's going to hurt the most."
Agreed. Sadly, his Republican colleagues
who voted for the legislation showed that ei-
ther they are so far removed from the environs
of the classroom or so blinded by party loyalty,
they were oblivious to what the ramifications
of their actions would be and the outrage
among educators they would cause
Republican leaders will continue to bash
Crist for crossing party lines.
But sending them back to the chalkboard
may have been the governor's finest hour.


R e ad e rs fo iru Letters do not necessarily reflect the views of Tampa Bay Newspapers.


Veto merit raises
Editor:
I am not a fan of any politician, least of all
Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican. But I was
very touched and amazed that he vetoed the
bill that would give merit raises to teachers
based on the children's' performance on stan-
dardized tests. Furthermore, I was happy that
he eluded to the Nina Harris School in Pinellas
Park where Crist visited two years ago and re-
ferred to that school with its special education
students as the reason he vetoed the bill.
I am dismayed now that since he vetoed the
bill, he has lost votes by would-be, will not
now vote for him in his run for senator, includ-
ing his own party members. I swear. When
God gave out brains, he went right over the
heads of politicians.
I have a solution. We as voters and con-
stituents should obtain the opportunity to veto
merit raises for senators and congressmen and
women based on their performance in the
House of Representatives each year.
I am certain the House members get a raise
every year even though Obama called for pay
wage freezes for all government employees.
I am still waiting for word as to when I will
receive my stimulus check for 2010. I have two
options. Hold my hand on my derriere or write
a letter to President Obama.

Where are the bike lanes?
Editor:
This letter is in response to an article that
appeared in the St. Petersburg Times Neigh-
borhood section Sunday, April 11. In the "Dr.
Delay" column, a reader from Seminole or
Largo wrote in to complain about the large
pack of cyclists taking up most of the north-
bound lane of Oakhurst/Indian Rocks Road
on just about every Sunday morning. I have
been one of those cyclist in that group on
many occasions, and while I certainly can't
speak for everyone in that group, I can say
that if any road we ride on in the city of Semi-
nole had even the slightest resemblance to a
bike lane, I would be on it.
Bicycles are not meant to be on sidewalks,
and in a city that prides itself as family orient-
ed, neighborhood schools, "Come Grow With
Us," etc., I challenge any city official to show
me or tell me where one bike lane in the entire
city exists. I'm fully aware the Pinellas Trail
runs north and south through Seminole, and
it's a great recreational resource for the entire
county, but with the number of walkers, roller
bladers, joggers, kids, dogs, teenagers, stop
signs and crosswalks every 10 blocks, it is not
conducive, not to mention safe, for our types of
bikes and speeds. With three major schools in


the area of 131st Street and 86th Avenue not
one of those two major routes of traveling to or
from those schools have bike lanes. Our route
through your city takes us from the Bay Pines
bridge area to 54th Avenue north on 113th
Street to 68th Avenue west on 74th Avenue to
Oakhurst Road and north on Oakhurst to
102nd Avenue.
Not one bike lane to the entire route. I've
also been on 102nd Avenue many times, and I
know there is currently some debate as to
what that road should look like in its finished
state, whenever that is. I just hope it includes
a bike lane somewhere. I urge the city officials
in Seminole to take a drive down to St. Peters-
burg some time. Just about every road resur-
face job in that city includes the addition of a
bike lane. Or better yet, get out on a bike in
your own city somewhere. Just make sure you
have a helmet on. You're gonna need it!

Facts always win out
Re: Don't shoot the messenger March 25
Editor:
It's always important to get the facts
straight. The only time "they shoot the mes-
senger" is when the facts are wrong.
First, there are two gentle ladies on the
(Seminole City) Council and one of them was
just elected vice mayor.
Second, there was no increase in the city
budget, but a transfer of money from one de-
partment to another. I do not know that many
cities will transfer funds from one account to
another, to make sure each department is run-
ning as it should.
I attended many of the candidate forums
and of the seven candidates, only one kept
bringing up a full-time mayor form of govern-
ment. One of the other candidates wanted all
of the council members replaced. One of the
candidates had nothing but praise for the City
Council and the city manager.
Every full-time mayor is on salary and he or
she has a full-time staff. In Florida it seems
very expensive to fire a top executive. What
was the budget for the community the writer
served on 15 years ago? Is that community
doing as well as the city of Seminole?
The writer kept telling us he served on the
Charter Revision Committee. How many were
on that committee and many other members
of that committee wanted a strong mayor form
of government?
Again, the true facts will always win out over
guess work. That way, they don't shoot the
messenger.

By definition, luggage is al-
most anything that must be
lugged. Because early hu-
mans didn't travel much,
they had little need for lug-
gage.
But after the invention of
the wheel, devices such as
carts, wagons, and tour
buses began to be seen on
public roads. Travelers want-
ed to carry tooth brushes
and a change of underwear
with them. This required
bundles or boxes. They were
the first suitcases.
Luggage has many forms.
There is no end to the
trunks, suitcases, duffel
bags, grips, satchels,
overnight bags, garment
bags, totes and other devices
that designers and manufac-
turers keep turning out. I
could devote a detailed para-
graph to each variety, but I
won't. And aren't you glad?
I recently went shopping
for a new suitcase. I learned
that it's almost impossible to
buy just one suitcase. They
seem to come in sets of two,
three or even five. I'm not
sure why.
Most pieces of modern lug-
gage have several zippers.
When a suitcase finally
wears out, it's usually the
zippers that give way first.
There should be a Zipper In-
stitute to regulate the manu-
facture and use of zippers.
But no such body exists.
Alas.
The most important ad-
vance in the evolution of lug-
gage was the installation of
wheels on suitcases. That
took place in 1974, the Sam-
sonite people told me. This
could have easily have been
done at almost any time once
suitcases were invented. God
only knows how many other
simple inventions are waiting
to be born, if only someone
would do it.


fDriver's Seat
Bob Driver



A version of luggage that
provokes vast rage each year
is the carry-on. Ideally, a
carry-on is any form of light-
weight luggage that can easi-
ly be stowed in the overhead
compartments on an aircraft.
But in reality (at least on the
airplanes I fly on), the aver-
age carry-on is huge. It
weighs 80 pounds and re-
quires an offensive lineman
to jam the carry-on into the
compartment. While the
owner is doing that, he or
she is holding up traffic in
the airplane aisle, causing
other passengers to wait and
the flight crew to postpone
takeoff. This inconsiderate
blockage is then repeated
when the plane lands, as the
carry-on owners try to dis-
lodge their gargantuan suit-
cases from the storage areas.
Some airlines are planning to
charge extra for any carry-on
that cannot be tucked be-
neath passenger seats. I'm
all for that. It will encourage
travelers to store their gear
in the plane's belly. It will
also keep me from wanting
to assault those rude, arro-
gant passengers who bring
their oversize carry-ons
aboard.
A major problem with air-
line luggage is theft. Thou-
sands of items are stolen
each year, presumably by
airline or airport personnel,
who unzip suitcases and
make off with valuable items.
Sometimes entire suitcases
are stolen. This is made easi-
er by the fact that so many
pieces of luggage look alike.
When I bought a suitcase
seven years ago, I painted


huge words on it. I painted
the word "YELLOW" in bright
yellow; "GREEN" in green;
"RED" in the color red, and
so on. No one could mistake
my suitcase for their own, so
nobody made off with it.
I'm not sure how I'll give
my new suitcase a distin-
guishing look. Perhaps I'll tie
a sexy pair of women's
knickers to the handle. Or a
replica of a human forearm
and hand. But that would at-
tract the security people,
which is the last thing an
airline traveler wishes to do
today.
Baggage handlers are a
vital part of the travel indus-
try. Their presence has led
to one of the unanswered
questions of history: How
much do you tip a baggage
handler? A dollar a bag?
Five bucks? Is the rate the
same in Harrisburg as in
Las Vegas? Should six tiny
suitcases bring the same
size tip as six big pieces?
Does any authority publish
the final word on these
questions?
A piece of luggage is more
than a utilitarian device. A
suitcase is often part of a
dream or an exciting adven-
ture. It can stand for a con-
nection between two or more
people. Where there is lug-
gage, almost always it is ac-
companied by a greeting, a
kiss, a hug, a reunion of
persons who care for each
other. As we stand waiting
at the baggage claim area,
let's remind ourselves that
the objects moving by are
not mere suitcases. They are
symbols of life, chapters of
marvelous stories, treasured
links to memories past and
future.
I say "Huzzah!" for lug-
gage. What say you?

FORUM, from page 6

Bay Pines MHP
development insane
Editor:
I am writing in response to the story "City nears deal on Bay
Pines MHP."
The definition of insanity comes to mind when I read that ar-
ticle; that is, doing the same thing over and over again, and ex-
pecting different results. It is why I am now fully convinced,
that not just on the local, state or federal level, but in terms of
the entire planet, things are going to end very badly in one
more final financial/economic crisis, most likely within four to
six quarters.
So now GMAC wants a deal to change the zoning require-
ments on that property, a property that has been nothing short
of a roadside monument of what went terribly wrong a few
years back. Why is the city, or the bank for that matter as well,
wasting their time on a property that is never going to get devel-
oped? Drive up and down Seminole Boulevard and see plenty of
vacant commercial space. Plenty of empty homes too. Why
bother?
For that matter, drive up and down Gulf Boulevard and see
plenty of vacant lots and empty commercial properties, along-
side plenty of bank-owned condos and beachside homes, none
of which are going to get sold anytime soon. Some of them in
fact, sit condemned as uninhabitable.
Without getting too grandiose on my world economic views, I
wish to bring it down to a local level. I have been coming down
here since I was a kid in the 1970s and now live in my great
aunt's house that she left for the family after she died in 2005. I
moved down here in January 2008 and have, with my own
eyes, witnessed foreclosures and walkaways in my neighbor-
hood. I have to, indirectly, keep an eye on two vacant homes
across the street from me. And I am sick of it. And I cannot be
quiet about it anymore.
What I would suggest, and it may take legislation in Talla-
hassee to do so, is an aggressive land use/bank program where
eminent domain is used to mop up these vacant lots/walka-
ways/foreclosures and turn them into something other than
roadside monuments of The Great Recession.
Banks/sellers/speculators forced to sell at market price, and
not at the price they think it is worth.
The city of Seminole did something similar earlier, when it
took over that one lot with four vacant homes on the northwest
corner of 70th Avenue and 113th Street, simply purchased the
property and added it to the fire station. As someone who lives
a few blocks away, I was glad it was taken care of.
My suggestion for the Bay Pines Mobile Home Park is that,
perhaps in conjunction with the Bay Pines VA, is to make use
of it as another VA/federal government building or perhaps a
park. I can guarantee you 100 percent that the property will
never be developed as residential/commercial. Pinellas County
has been losing people at a pretty steady rate. It is not unlike
my native northeast Ohio. People don't want to live in an eco-
nomically depressed area.
I wish these people would think away from the current policy
of economic expectations. Hoping and wishing is not a reason-
able land use/economic policy; reality must come into play
here.
The current way of approaching these roadside monuments
has been proven to be, to me, one big economic fiction, exposed
in the depths of the financial crisis of 2008. To think otherwise,
meets the aforementioned definition of insanity.

A waste of resources
Editor:
I have read the editorial about the proliferation of prescrip-
tion drugs and the subsequent comments of Bob Dillinger and
Sheriff Coats.
There are calls for a dedicated law enforcement unit, educa-
tion, and expensive monitoring programs which we are hoping
the Legislature will fund. I want to point out that I do take this
problem seriously and mourn with those who have lost family
members.
However, I have heard all this before and know that what is
being suggested is a monumental waste of resources. Sheriff
Coats has used the phrase "it's all about the money" and he
again is right. If no one were buying illicit drugs, there would be
no problem, but that philosophy is lost on the tough-on-crime
crowd.
Asking the Legislature for help is counterproductive. Their
only mantra is stiffer penalties.
A special unit in these times of fiscal crisis? A huge waste of
money.
If you think this will work then it would stand to reason that
with all the money spent in the last 20 years there should be
no illegal drugs in Pinellas County. We all know better.
Putting people in jail only assures someone new will take
their place and provides full employment for the members of
the strategic Diversion Unit playing "Wack a Mole". After all if
there is money to be made someone will always take their
place. Sadly they are usually smarter, better organized and
more vicious.
Addressing the treatment needs of those in pain and provid-
ing addiction services is the most effective way of dealing with
this problem.
Give me the $1.5 million that would be wasted on electronic
monitoring and let me use it on treatment and I'll give you
seven times the value for the buck. Get the DEA to come up
with a standard for the treatment of intractable pain and quit
harassing all physicians who treat intractable pain and we'll
have made a giant step forward.
Treat the addicted, provide proper care for those truly in pain
and you eliminate the revenue source for dealers.
It's the only true solution to the problem

The characters you meet at Ruth Eckerd Hall


I recently attended an
evening performance at Ruth
Eckerd Hall and enjoyed it thor-
oughly ... but not the host of
characters in the audience.
I have attended events on
New York's Broadway where
men wore suits and women
sparkled in dresses and heels.
Some folks in the Ruth Eckerd
audience, however, saw fit to
show up in shorts and jeans
and acted as if they were at a
grand opening of a second rate
drive-in.
Electronics are banned in
theaters for good reason. But
that didn't stop people from
whispering into their cell
phones and playing with their
Blackberrys during the perfor-
mance. A man in front of me
munched on popcorn, then got
up in the middle of the event
and returned with a bottle of
water. A woman actually
showed up with her two kids
and a box of Dunkin' Donuts
under her arm.
I just think that it was all so

rude, but rudeness seems to be
a way of life these days. I don't
understand why people pay be-
tween $50 and $75 a seat when
performers must compete with
the distractions emanating from
the audience.
I remember a time when peo-
ple actually dressed up to at-
tend the theater, go to church
on Sunday morning or attend
other public events. A suit or a
dress were once mandatory for
air travel. Now people get on
board airliners in shorts, T-
shirts and flip-flops.
There used to be a motto;
clothes make the man (or
woman). Years ago I wore three-
piece suits to work. Women
wore dresses and business
suits. Now folks show up in
bluejeans, sneakers and T-
shirts. Sometimes with obscene

I speculate that modem soci-
ety has gone totally blithe. It
began when businesses began
celebrating casual Fridays, mak-
ing it acceptable to leave behind
the tie and Wingtip shoes. Every
day now is casual day as dress
codes flew out the window in
today's permissive and political-
ly correct society. Some folks
think nothing about tossing a
soda can out a car window at a
red light. Or a burning cigarette
butt on a hot summer day when
the fire hazard level is highest.
Even Michelle Obama man-
aged to show her disdain for
dressing for an occasion. A re-
cent photo depicted her walking
away from Air Force One. Two
Air Force sergeants stood at at-
tention in their dress blues.
Obama was wearing crumpled
shorts, a blouse and sneakers.
As first lady she, who allegedly
represents the U.S., should
know better.

when people cared about their
appearance. When people apolo-
gized for indiscretions, no mat-
ter how trivial. Now, we listen to
apologies for infidelity, political
corruption, crime and every-
thing else and that makes every-
thing fine. Rudeness and
in-your-face confrontations
seem to be the order of the day.
Once a little old lady, who re-
sembled the epitome of anyone's
grandmother, gave me the bird

my horn because she was dri-

mph zone.
Maybe some people in this
"me-me" selfish generation will
never know how it feels to get
dressed up to attend a function
to look and act like ladies and
gentlemen. And that's too bad
because there is a lot to be said
about modern society, and
shoving pop corn and jelly
donuts into your mouth in a
place where things like that
should be forbidden.

Sunset Beach
parking regs start
TREASURE ISLAND New
on-street parking regulations
went into effect April 16 for
Treasure Island's Sunset
Beach neighborhood.
The new rules restrict
parking to one side of the
street between the hours of 8
a.m. and 6 p.m. on Satur-
days, Sundays, Memorial
Day, Independence Day and
Labor Day. Outside of that
timeframe, parking is allowed
anywhere it is legally permit-
ted.
Residents' concerns about
heavy traffic, blocked streets
and driveways, and emer-
gency vehicle access to nar-
row Sunset Beach streets
prompted the city commis-
sion to approve the one-side-
of-the-street parking plan
March 16.
"This is our best recom-
mendation for Sunset
Beach," Treasure Island Po-
lice Chief Tim Casey told the


commission. "We decided the
best method is to keep one
side of the streets open to
parking. We believe that this
plan has the least amount of
impact to residents and pro-
vides one of the more effec-
tive means of providing room
for emergency vehicle travel."
Fifteen streets at the
northern end of Sunset
Beach are affected. The
streets with no parking on
the north side are 95th Av-
enue, 93rd Avenue, 88th Av-
enue, 86th Avenue and Bay
Plaza (to East Bay). The
streets with no parking on
the south side are: 94th Av-
enue, 92nd Avenue, 91st Av-
enue, 90th Avenue, 89th
Avenue, East Bay Drive
(north part only), 87th Av-
enue, 86th Terrace, 85th Av-
enue (to East Bay) and Blind
Pass Drive (off West Gulf
Boulevard only).

new parking regulations is

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Your Smile Shouldn't Have a Silver Lining
It isn't that I don't believe that silver lined clouds are beautiful.
It isn't even that I don't like silver. It's just that what people
commonly call silver fillings really isn't silver except in color.
These so-called silver fillings are an amalgam that contains all
kinds of metals, the main one being mercury. Over time, these
fillings wear allowing mercury to enter the body. Usually after
ten years they are no longer sealing the teeth correctly and may
need to be replaced.
I don't use these restorations in my practice. In fact, I haven't
done an amalgam filling in over twenty
years and do not have this material in
my office. The good news is that the
newest fillings have been perfected to
the point where they out perform
amalgam and best of all look like
natural teeth. In reality, the best filling
is no filling. It is true that the health of
your mouth is directly related to the
health of your whole body. When your
mouth is healthy, all of you can be
healthier too!
Of course, there are times when
teeth become damaged because of injury or decay, or simply
because of wear over the years. We take a preventive approach to
preserve and retain more natural teeth and their underlying
structure.
How do we do this? We start by encouraging very early dental
care, beginning before a child is even a year old and preserving
teeth with regular cleaning, fluoride treatment, proper home
care and sealants. But if you are a new adult patient, don't
worry. We can help you keep your teeth whole and healthy too.
Our applied preventive measures help keep anyone's teeth in
their natural, strong condition.
We focus on regular cleaning and screenings so problems can
be caught well before they develop. And if there is a problem,
our restorative treatments are as non-invasive and natural as
medically possible. All of our restorations are custom created
just for you using natural, biocompatible materials for strength,
health and beauty.
To find out more about how our advanced preventive and
restorative dentistry can help you, call us at 727.586.1955 or
visit aboutsmilesdental.com and read what our patients are
saying about us. 2260 West Bay Drive, Largo.

The heartbreak of psoriasis


Psoriasis is a chronic skin
disease that affects between 1
and 3 percent of the U.S. pop-
ulation.
It can also affect the joints
in up to 40 percent of patients
leading to morning stiffness,
joint aches and pains and
joint destruction. There are a
myriad of new treatments
available in the past 10 years
that provide a glimpse of hope
for those that have been suf-
fering with psoriasis.
Psoriasis vulgaris (common
type) peaks at two points in

late 20s and once in the late

any point in one's life. Al-
though the exact cause is
unknown, infections, medica-

pearance of psoriasis. Numer-
ous medications such as
Beta-Blockers may make pso-
riasis more difficult to control.
There are specific genes that
have been discovered with in-
creased frequency in patients
with psoriasis. Recently, the
"Metabolic Syndrome" has
been associated with psoria-
sis along with increased risks
of heart disease and diabetes.
Psoriasis can have many
presentations in that it may
affect the elbows, knees and
scalp (more common presen-
tation), it may involve the un-
derarms, groin, buttocks and
genitals or it may involve just
about any body surface. It
may be mild (3 percent of
body surface area), moderate
(3 to 10 percent) or severe
(greater than 10 percent). It
also may affect the joints in
what is referred to as "psori-
atic arthritis." There are at
least five subtypes of arthritis,
the most common of which
affects only a few joints (oligo-
asymmetric).
Treatments for psoriasis
are quite extensive today.
There are the topical treat-
ments that have been used
for years, oral medications
and injections.

Topical
Steroids
Combination steroids
Vitamin D analogues
Anthralin/Tars
Moisturizers and Kera-

Steroids

Biologics or
injections
In the late 1990s, a class
of medications were devel-
oped called biologicss" be-
cause they work on the
body's own immune system
to modify the psoriasis. This
is a great example of what
technology can do for us in
the advancement of medi-
cine.
There are now many choic-
es of biologics to choose
from, all having their pros
and cons. In general, when a
patient has psoriasis, their
immune system (T cells) is
activated and making too
much of some chemical mes-
sengers. These chemical
messengers have fancy
names such as Tumor Necro-
sis Factors (TNF) or Inter-
leukins (IL). The biologic
medications act to decrease
these extra chemical messen-
gers that are driving the pso-
riasis. The more we
understand about psoriasis,
the more specific the medica-
tions are becoming and
hence, more effective. Some
of the biologic medications
available today include:
Enbrel (Etanercept)
Humira (Adalimumab)
Remicade (Infliximab)
Symponi (Golimumab)
Stelara (Ustekinumab)
Amevive (Alefacept)
Some of these above med-
ications are also quite effec-
tive in treating and


controlling the psoriatic
arthritis. Some are given at
home by the patient (self-ad-
ministered) and some are
given by the doctor at his or
her office by injection. Some
are given twice weekly, some
once every 12 weeks and
everywhere in between. I
have found the biologics to
be a God send to many of my
patients. I have prescribed
these medications to hun-
dreds of patients over the
past 10 years and it is has
been life changing in many,
many cases.

Ultraviolet
light therapy
Ultraviolet light has been a
treatment for psoriasis for
many years. It is effective in
most cases and in pregnan-
cy, probably the safest way to
go. You may hear about one
of the following types of ul-
traviolet treatment:
SUVA
P-UVA
Re-PUVA
*UVB
Narrow band UVB
Excimer Laser (UVB)
They all have their place
and you really need to talk to
your doctor about the best
option for you. The downside
is the inconvenience of going
to the office for the treat-
ment. The ultraviolet expo-
sure also can lead to
premature aging and in-
creased risks of skin cancer.
In some cases, I have pre-
scribed home ultraviolet
boxes for the patient, but
they need to be seen regular-


ly to ensure they aren't burn-
ing their skin and are im-
proving. We don't usually
recommend tanning beds as
you just don't know what
type of ultraviolet light you
are getting, how much, how
clean the beds are, etc.

The metabolic
syndrome
In the past few years, we
have begun to learn that pso-
riasis is an inflammatory dis-
ease state that has other
disease associations. One
such association is the meta-
bolic syndrome. This is a syn-
drome with six components
that relate to cardiovascular
disease (CVD):
Abdominal obesity
Atherogenic dyslipidemia
(cholesterol)
Raised Blood Pressure
Insulin Resistance +/-
glucose intolerance
Proinflammatory state
Prothrombotic state (clot-
ting)
I think it is important to be
aware that if you have psoria-
sis, you may be at an in-
creased risk of cardiovascular
disease in the future. It is
best to live as clean as you
can by exercise, proper diet
and seeing your primary care
physician regularly to stay on
top of your health.
This has been a brief re-
view on psoriasis, focusing on
the available treatments. If
you have psoriasis and
haven't been seen for years,
it's worth getting in to see
your dermatologist to re-evalu-
ate the options.

proved such an audience favorite on Idol that the late, great
Jeff Buckley's rendition of the song hit No. on the iTunes chart
the following week, selling an astonishing 178,000 digital sin-
gles. Castro scored a chart-topping single of his own a few
weeks later with his interpretation of "Somewhere Over The

12 Rising Stars of Comedy. In March, Burnham released his
first full length LP which topped Billboard magazine's New

rected by Nicholas Hytner. Benjamin Britten, sailing uncom-
fortably close to the wind with his new opera, "Death in

W.H. Auden. During this imagined meeting, their first for 25
years, they are observed and interrupted by, amongst others,
their future biographer and a young man from the local bus
station. Bennett's new play is as much about the theatre as it
is about poetry or music.

Opening this week

Pierce Brosnan narrates 'Oceans' while Jennifer Lopez garners laughs in 'The Back-up Plan'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Oceans'
Genre: Documentary
Cast: Pierce Brosnan
Director: Jacques Cluzaud, Jacques Perrin
Rated: G
Disneynature, the studio that presented the
record-breaking film "Earth," brings "Oceans"
to the big screen on Earth Day.
Nearly three-quarters of the Earth's surface
is covered by water and "Oceans" boldly
chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath. Di-
rectors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud
dive deep into the very waters that sustain all
of mankind, exploring the harsh reality and
the amazing creatures that live within. Featur-
ing spectacular, never-before-seen imagery
captured by the latest underwater technolo-
gies, "Oceans" offers an unprecedented look
beneath the sea in a powerful motion picture
that unfolds on April 22, 2010.

'The Back-up Plan'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Michaela Watkins, Jennifer Lopez,
Alex O'Loughlin, Noureen DeWulf and Melissa
McCarthy
Director: Alan Poul


Rated: PG-13
The "Back-up Plan" is a comedy that ex-
plores dating, love, marriage and family in re-
verse.
After years of dating, Zoe (Jennifer Lopez)
has decided waiting for the right one is taking
too long. Determined to become a mother, she
commits to a plan, makes a doctor's appoint-
ment and decides to go it alone. That same
day, Zoe meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) a man
with real possibilities.
Trying to nurture a budding relationship
and hide the early signs of pregnancy becomes
a comedy of errors for Zoe and creates confus-
ing signals for Stan. When Zoe nervously re-
veals the reason for her unpredictable
behavior, Stan considers his unusual future
but eventually says he's in. Never before has
love seen a courtship where a wild night of sex
involves three in a bed Stan, Zoe and the
ever-present massive pregnancy pillow. The
real pregnancy test comes when both of them
realize they really don't know each other out-
side of hormonal chaos and birth prepara-
tions. With the nine month clock ticking, both
begin to experience cold feet. Anyone can fall
in love, get married and have a baby but doing
it backwards in hyper-drive could be proof
positive that they were made for each other.

'The Losers'
Genre: Action, adventure and thriller
Cast: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana,
Chris Evans, Idris Elba and Columbus Short


Photo co
Director: Sylvain White
Rated: PG-13
An explosive action tale of betrayal and re-
venge, 'The Losers" centers around the mem-
bers of an elite Special Forces unit sent to the
Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mis-
sion. But the team Clay, Jensen, Roque,
Pooch and Cougar soon find that they have
become the target of a deadly double cross, in-
stigated from the inside by a powerful enemy
known only as Max.
Making good use of the fact that they are
now presumed dead, the group goes deep un-

Plan."

dercover in a dangerous plot to clear their
names and even the score with Max. They are
joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful op-
erative with her own agenda, who is more than
capable of scoring a few points of her own.
Working together, when they're not arguing
among themselves, they have to stay one step
ahead of the globetrotting Max a ruthless
man bent on embroiling the world in a new
high-tech global war for his own benefit. If
they can take down Max and save the world at
the same time, it'll be a win-win for the team
now known as The Losers.

Savvy shoppers love The Buzz


It's been nearly nine months since The Buzz Thrift
Store, a ministry of Pathways Community Church,
officially opened its doors at 9025 Ulmerton Road,
Largo.
According to Valerie Schaefer, store manager, the
store continues to evolve to meet the expectations of its
customers. Clean and organized, The Buzz stands out
among area thrift stores by offering a wide variety of
fashionable clothing, captivating collectibles and fine
furniture, along wits affordable, everyday items.
"We clean everything we sell," Schaefer said,
explaining that donations are screened, cleaned and
evaluated long before they reach the 5,200 square foot
showroom. We
even check games
and puzzles to make
sure they are
complete."
Browsing through
the merchandise at
The Buzz, it's
obvious that Schaefer
and her team take t
considerable pride in
the store. Thle sales
floor is neat and tidy and is organized b product type.
Schaefer, who clearly
has a keen eye for
creating appealing
displays, has
designed groupings
to showcase items
such as vintage and
retro kitchenware
and country kitsch.
Other areas feature
children's toys,
artwork, housewares and furniture.
"It looks and feels more like a consignment shop,"
Schaefer said, "but, it's not. It's a great place or
collectors to find great deals."


Those looking for treasures won't be disappointed.
According to Schaefer, all kinds of unusual, rare and
vintage pieces come into the store each week. Using the
Internet and other resources, Schaefer has become a bit
of an expert in appraising everything from antique
furniture to prize d curios.
"I do my research," Schaefer said. "We try to find a
middle ground offering quality products at reasonable
prices lower than you d expect from a dealer."
The steady stream of memorabilia, collectible
keepsakes and curious knickknacks have attracted the
attention of area collectors. For instance, the store
recently acquired a Brown Saltman chest by John Keal
made in the middle of the 20th century. The piece
currently boasts a pre-auction price of $1,000.
But The Buzz isn't just about rarities, antiquities and
ob ets d'art.
The Hive, a boutique-style section that boasts popular
teen name brands such as American Eagle and Hollister,
appeals to teen shoppers.
In The Hive, we have clothing priced lower than the
trendy teen re-sale stores," Schaefer said. With the
recession continuing to take a toll on everyone's budget,
prudent shoppers are looking for the best buys in town.


"Shoppers can expect good value as well as good
quality at The Buzz.
As manager, Schaefer oversees dozens of volunteers
who are dedicated to keeping The Buzz neat as a
button and making sure the shelves are stocked with
eye-catching items. Those volunteers also help
customers find good buys, whether they are looking
for a pair of shoes, a piece of furniture or a hard-to-find
collectible.
"We even help shoppers put together outfits,"
Schaefer said.
The Buzz combines style and value with a
commitment to make
a difference in the
community and
beyond. Proceeds
from the store go to
overseas missions as
well as community
outreaches and other
projects led by
ath ways
Community Church,
801 Seminole Blvd.,
Largo.
The Buzz Thrifta
Store is open
Monday through
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5
p.m., at 9025 -
Ulmerton Road,
Largo. Donations are -
accepted during
store hours. For
larger items,
arrangements can be made for a pick-up.

Fishermen help


biologists with


tarpon research
Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and Mote
Marine Laboratory continue to gather valuable tarpon infor-
mation with the help of Florida anglers.
By analyzing DNA samples collected by fishermen, biolo-
gists gain insight into tarpon movement and distribution as
well as their ability to withstand fishing pressures.
Biologists use samples submitted to the Tarpon Genetic
Recapture Program to identify the tarpon's genetic "finger-
print."
The fingerprints provide a unique and natural tag for each
individual fish. Scientists compare new tarpon DNA samples
with cataloged samples to determine if someone caught and
sampled that tarpon previously. Biologists refer to these fish
as "recaptured" tarpon.
State officials have documented 37 recaptured tarpon since
2005. Information from these fish provides valuable insight
on tarpon movement.
For example, one recaptured adult tarpon traveled 88 miles
in 313 days, heading north from the waters off Fort Myers
Beach to Long Boat Key.
A different tarpon made a similar movement in the oppo-
site direction, confirming that tarpon move between estuaries
along the west coast. Another fish, caught in June 2007 in
Boca Grande, was captured in the same location nearly two
years later. This demonstrates that a tarpon will return to the
same body of water during the spawning season.
Angler involvement has increased significantly since the
program began in 2005. In the past 12 months, anglers pro-
vided more than 2,000 samples, bringing the total number of
samples to just over 5,200. Anglers throughout Florida sub-
mitted samples from tarpon ranging in length from 5 to 96
inches.
Anglers who would like to participate in this program may
obtain a free, easy-to-use tarpon DNA sampling kit by e-mail-
ing TarponGenetics@MyFWC.com or by calling 800-367-
4461.
Participating anglers receive an annual newsletter with up-
dates on the program from biologists. As it becomes available,
anglers also will receive additional information about specific
fish they caught such as when the tarpon is captured again
or if it has been captured previously. Fishermen who submit
a tarpon DNA sample to this program are entered into ran-
dom drawings for various prizes.
For more information on the Tarpon Genetic Recapture
Study, visit research.MyFWC.com/tarpon.

The tooth of the matter


"Watch for the bones," Mom always said
when she served fish. Trout bones were the
worst. But the best is not curbing your con-
sumption of fresh-caught beer-battered fish
hot off the grill. Well, every fish we eat comes
with different challenges.
Animals who eat fish also tailor the way
they catch and consume their varied fish diets.
For dolphins, who swallow without chewing,
fish bones
aren't an _
issue. But Dolphin
there are Watch
other issues
out there, Ann Weaver
some with
surprising
"teeth".
John's Pass dolphins have at least a dozen
different ways to hunt. To viewers watching
the surface, hunting patterns range from sub-
tle to wildly conspicuous. Yet, as the seas
warm, there is a quickening among the ani-
mals as sap flowing among the plants. Recent-
ly, this quickening took a spectacularly new
form of hunting; introduced by a dolphin we
call Ekard after San Diego Wild Animal Park
head trainer Susie Ekard.
Ekard is a transient bottlenose dolphin bull
who makes seasonal appearances in our local
waters. He and his bonded bull buddy, Spry,
came back from their winter hiatus three
weeks ago. Their appearance meant that
things were heating up among the dolphins. I
doubt that our fish populations, some serious-
ly culled by the icy winter, realized that things
would heat up for them too.
On the first spring day that was warm
enough to wear shorts, deep blue skies shined
over calm and clear seas. Ekard meandered
westward with Face, her 4-year-old Babyface,
Slight, and her 5-year-old Slightwin. Ekard oc-
casionally powered over the grasses but if he
was warming up, we didn't know it.
In a deeper channel between mangrove is-
lands, the quintet came abreast of a sand bar,
which launched Ekard into his spectacular
new technique. Abruptly, he rocketed dozens
of feet across the water surface; shimmering


rooster tails sheared off his fin. Where
wavelets licked the shore, he flipped on his
side, still pumping his mighty peduncle but
now punching the sea floor for purchase. In
his wake arose an extravagant semi-circular
chain of mudplumes, each 10 feet across and
rising like volcanic smoke but dramatically
camel-colored against sea foam green seas. In
less than a foot of water he spun, his head sta-
tionary as the hub of a wheel and his body the
spinning spoke, until the length of his body
completed the circle started by the mud-
plumes. As the fish fled from the mud, Ekard
was perfectly positioned to chomp.
Twice, then thrice, he performed this com-
manding technique before a second rocketing
body shot up from behind. Slightwin, of wean-
ing age but still tied to mother, hovered next to
Ekard except when the latter launched his as-
saults into the shallows.
More slowly and tentatively, Slightwin then
showed two close approximations of Ekard's
unique technique. He was a good student, re-
gardless of how well his performance met the
strict scientific criterion for imitation.
Catching the fever, mother Slight did the
same technique with nearly the same aplomb
as Ekard.
Wherever our dolphins went this winter,
they learned new hunting techniques.
Leaving the sand bar behind, the quintet
cut across a deep channel and kept going. On
the other side of the channel, another young
male hunted along a seawall. He too had just
returned from his winter hiatus, and brought
a new technique with him.
Whereas Ekard spun mud against the
shoreline, VC spun mud against a seawall. As
his giant mud plume of disturbed sands
slapped the seawall and bled backward, VC
emerged with a fish in his mouth.
He didn't swallow it right away. Holding it
across his mouth (rostrum), he swung by the
boat to display his prize sheepshead (Ar-
chosargus probatacephalus).
Also known as seabreams and convict fish
(for their 5-6 dark vertical stripes), sheepshead
eat crustaceans like fiddler crabs and bivalves
like oysters, clams, and barnacles. Averaging


Photo by ANN WEAVER
Young male bottlenose dolphin VC carries around a sheepshead he caught in a spectacular
moment, but then didn't swallow for a while.


5-8 inches and 3-4 pounds, they occur around
human sea structures like seawalls and pil-
ings that provide sites for sharp-shelled smor-
gasbords.
Forget the treachery of trout bones. What
does it take to eat oysters in the shell at sea?
It takes a mouth and dentition formidable
enough to pulverize very crunchy foods, and
sheepshead are beautifully equipped. The top
of their hard mouths are outfitted with tough
grinding surfaces and lined with stubby teeth.
Their front teeth form opposing rows of in-
cisorform teeth that resemble sheep teeth,
hence the name of the fish.
Get ready: Sheepshead front teeth look ex-
actly like the teeth YOU showed when you
grinned as a kid.
Sheepshead front teeth look so much like
human front teeth that you can only tell if a
tooth belonged to a sheepshead or a person by
inspecting its molecular structure with an
electron microscope.
Macroscopically, the dentin of the fish tooth


and the enamel of the human tooth are identi-
cal enough to play a major role in the on-going
argument between creationists and evolution-
ists about how our world came about. A cre-
ationist found a tooth near dinosaur tracks in
his Paluxy River fossil site in Texas. Assuming
it was human, he used it as evidence that man
and dinosaurs lived at the same time. Ergo,
evolutionary theory was wrong. It took many
years, discussions, and dollars to establish
that the fossil tooth in question was not
human, but belonged to a sheepshead.
The incredible similarity between
sheepshead and human teeth has got to make
you wonder what exactly people are designed
to eat!
To see an unbelievable picture of
sheepshead teeth, Google sheepsheadd" and
see Mario Bistro's blog.

Cool water isn't helping


Outdoors 25


Groundcover choices vs. lawn


The transition into spring is taking longer
than expected.
Although we've had a long stretch of normal
weather for this time of year, the gulf water
temperature just doesn't want to warm up.
At last check our near-shore water tempera-
tures was
68 degrees,
and the in- ish Tales
shore tempCapt. Tyson
is fluctuat- apt.Tyson
ing between Wallerstein
71 to 74 de-
grees.
It's the warmer inshore water that's attract-
ing the bait fish; many of the area bridges
have a good mix of scaled sardines and
threadfin herring cruising the shadow lines at
night.
Trout, redfish and even some snook are re-
sponding well to the arrival of the protein rich
baits that will provide the fat content neces-
sary to bring our inshore fish up to speed after
a very long lean winter.
Look for the best trout action to occur
around deep grass flats near the passes; these
flats often load up with bait and the trout
seem to know.
Deep diving pelicans are a dead giveaway
that there is some bigger bait on that particu-
lar flat.
Notice how the birds usually dive right on
the edge where the sand meets the grass.


That is the same area that the trout will be
holding in. Fishing with a sardine or a
threadfin under a float is the preferred presen-
tation.
This allows you to control your bait a little
as you try to get it to drift perfectly along the
edge.
As the tide increases, adding a split shot 6
inches above your hook will help to keep your
bait in the strike zone.
King fish and Spanish mackerel numbers
are steadily on the rise despite the cool gulf
temperature and lack of bait along the beach-
es. With warm weather in the forecast for this
weekend, we might finally see that water temp
hold above 70 degrees, if so the fishing should
get really good by next week.
Currently the bulk of the kingfish are 5 to
19 miles offshore. If you can get out there with
a live well full of sardines, you can hook into
all the small schoolie sized fish you want.
There have been a few big fish caught in closer
to shore, but the majority of the fish have yet
to enter our area.
Until next week get bent!

Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo
in the paper, send the photo along with
your name, when and where it was caught
to editorial@tbnweekly.com or mail it to
Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole
Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.


Pushing a lawn mower is not my favorite
form of exercise. So when I started the land-
scape in my yard, removing the grass was a
priority.
Low maintenance of plants was important,
but that plan was soon replaced by the temp-
tation of
growing un-
usual tropi-
cal plants.
Being a
plant lover, I Ruth Davies
enjoy "play-
ing" with my
green growing friends. Still, I consider pruning
and shaping once a month low maintenance.
Vegetables, on the other hand, are tended to
daily. Green peas and beans seem to grow
overnight to the right size.
Replacing sod with ground covers needs
thought. If children need room to play catch,
grass is in order; Bocce games need a smooth
lawn; a shady yard can't support grass but
plants, paths and ground-covering plants
such as bromeliads look natural.
In my yard, there are five live ground cov-
ers: ice plant, beach sunflower and sun rose
in the bright light or direct sun; barleria and
dwarf ruellia for shady areas. There are sever-
al other good groundcovers, including mi-
mosa, perennial peanut, Asiatic jasmine,
railroad vine, lantana, liriope, mondo grass,
zebrina pendula and my newly found summer


bloomer, gaillardia.
Once your choice is made, plant, water and
keep the weeds pulled. Either wood chips or
oak leaves around the plant will help cut down
water needs until it has settled its roots. Ten
years ago one beach sunflower plant covered
an area 20 feet square and has seeded itself
into thousands of plants.
Plant needs and planting distance is differ-
ent for each variety, so research before pur-
chase.
One of the box stores mentioned that grass
plugs are selling as fast as they come in. If re-
pair is needed, now is a good time to do so. To
correct the dates mentioned in the April 4 col-
umn in 2011 fertilizer rules change, the peri-
od is June 1 to Sept. 30 to refrain from the
use of nitrogen and/or phosphorous on lawns
and in landscapes.
There are products on the market that are
made from sewage. Some say there are traces
of unwanted chemicals that leach out.
Frankly, that is why I prefer ground covers
that can survive in Florida sand. The fewer
chemicals used, the better for the environ-
ment. Compost can't be beat. It's homemade
with nature's waste. Now I'll have to start
farming worms.
The Green Thumb Festival is at Fuller Park
this weekend. Nearly 200 vendors will be there
to help with your plant desires.

Applications for state alligator hunting permits to be accepted May 5


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will
begin accepting applications May 5 for a chance to obtain
highly coveted permits to participate in the statewide alligator
harvest.
In Phase I, applications will be accepted for a random draw-
ing from 10 a.m. May 5 through 11:59 p.m. May 18. Approxi-
mately 6,000 alligator harvest permits will be available.
During the Phase I random drawing, each person can sub-
mit only one no-cost application, which provides the option of
prioritizing up to five hunt areas and period choices. All those
seeking a harvest permit must be at least 18 years old by Aug.
15. A permit allows the harvest of two alligators on a designat-
ed area.
People can submit applications at any county tax collector's
office, license agent (retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing
licenses), and at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com. Drawing results


will be posted at MyFWC.com/Hunting; click on "Limited
Entry Hunts," then "Check Permit Availability and Drawing
Results." Successful applicants must make their trapping li-
cense fee payments at the application locations list above by
June 7.
Any permits remaining after June 7 will be offered during
Phase II on a first-come, first-served basis from 10 a.m. June 9
through 11:59 p.m. June 15. Those who purchased a permit
during Phase I may not apply. Applicants in Phase II are limit-
ed to one permit.
If permits are available after Phase II, the FWC will offer
them during Phase III on a first-come, first-served basis, while
they last, beginning at 10 a.m. June 16. Folks who purchased
a permit in Phase I or II may apply for additional permits dur-
ing Phase III.
Successful applicants must submit payment for an alligator


trapping license and two alligator harvest tags, or provide proof
of a valid alligator trapping license (must be valid through Nov.
1) and pay the fee for two harvest tags. No other hunting li-
censes are required.
The cost for a resident alligator trapping license and alligator
harvest tags is $271.50, and nonresidents pay $1,021.50. The
cost for each additional alligator hunting permit is $61.50, re-
gardless of residency. All fees are nonrefundable. Tags and
permits are nontransferable.
An alligator trapping agent license is also available for
$51.50; it allows the license holder to assist permitted trappers
in taking alligators.
The alligator hunting season will run 11 consecutive weeks
from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1.
For more information about these alligator hunts, visit
MyFWC.com/Gators.

DoYou Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer? I
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 1
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
extremely high success rate.

SPCA to present class
for pet foster parents
LARGO An educational "baby shower" for
prospective canine and kitten foster parents
will be presented Saturday, April 24, 2 to 4
p.m., at the SPCA Tampa Bay Education
Building, 9099 130th Ave. N.
In preparation for the large number of kit-
tens and puppies that will come into the shel-
ter this spring and summer, the SPCA Tampa
Bay is looking for new foster parents to open
up their hearts and homes to help these
youngsters grow up strong and healthy for
their adoption.
This educational baby shower will cover the
ins and outs of being a canine and kitten fos-
ter parent. To attend, call Nicole at 586-3591,
ext. 127, or volunteer@spcatampabay.org.

Spaying and neutering
can save money
LARGO In today's troubling economic


times and with the current pet overpopulation
problems, Pinellas County Animal Services is
helping reduce the impact of both with an in-
novative program.
Licenses normally cost $20 with proof of ra-
bies vaccination. Those who have a pet which
is currently licensed and who have it spayed or
neutered should save the paperwork showing
the date of the surgery. The next license will be
issued at no charge with proof of sterilization
and a copy of the current intact license certifi-
cate.
The free license can only be redeemed once,
but it is a nice reward for helping in the battle
to eliminate the problem of unwanted dogs
and cats.
This offer applies only to licenses purchased
at Pinellas County Animal Services.
The Pinellas County Animal Services shelter
and adoption center is at 12450 Ulmerton
Road.
The public is invited to view the animals
available for adoption during shelter hours.
Hours are Monday through Wednesday and


Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. The adoption areas close 30 minutes
prior to the shelter closing.
Call 582-2600 or visit www.pinellascounty
.org/animalservices.

Church, a pantry that services 14 churches of various faiths in
the area.
Every pound of food collected by SVDP this month is eligible
for $1 in additional funds through a $1 million grant funded by
the Feinstein Foundation.
St. Matthew's SVDP is able to use 96 percent of its dona-
tions directly for client help. After ascertaining need, SVDP of-
fers utility, food or partial rent assistance to clients.
Persons interested in helping can leave a message on the
SVDP help line at 398-6618, ext. 4300, or write to St. Vincent
