for the Matter of Trust Hair For Oil Spills program.

Businesses donate hair to the cause


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE A pair of Pinellas County businesses
have joined in the battle to halt spilled oil in the Gulf of
Mexico before it has a chance to reach the beaches and
other environmentally-sensitive areas.
The Man Trap of Seminole, 13177 Park Blvd., and
Doggy Doos Pet Salon and Boutique, 7231 Central Ave.,
St. Petersburg, are donating hair and fur clippings, re-
spectively, to the Hair For Oil Spills program by San
Francisco-based Matter of Trust, an ecological public
charity formed in 1998.
Matter of Trust collects the hair donations at various
warehouse locations around the nation and sends it to
needlepunch factories where the hair is transformed into
hair mats. From there the hair mats are stuffed into re-
cycled nylon stockings to make booms that are used to
help contain and soak up oil spills.
Businesses locally are sending their hair donations to
a warehouse in Venice.
"I heard about it on the news," said Nina Bond, office
manager at Man Trap. "I did a little research on the In-
ternet and decided if there was something we could con-
tribute it would be a good thing for our beaches."
James White, owner of Doggy Doos Pet Salon, was re-


searching ways to help out with the oil spill and found
Matter of Trust.
"I imagine once people find out about this, they'll want
to be a part of it," White said. "We collect two to three
pounds of fur (clippings) per day. We've got probably 20
pounds that we'll stuff in a box and ship."
White, who lives in Causeway Isles near Treasure Is-
land, said he and his wife felt the need to help in whatev-
er manner they could and the Matter of Trust oil spill
program fit the bill.
Bond said she hopes all area hair salons get involved
in the program.
"If other salons in the area do it, we could combine it
and split up the cost of shipping," she said.
Bond said a neighboring CVS Pharmacy is donating
boxes for the shipments.
Carol Proulx, manager of the Man Trap, said the 31-
year-old business has always been civic oriented and in-
volved in efforts for charitable causes, like American
Cancer Society's Locks of Love program, but admitted
"this is kind of unusual for us." Under normal circum-
stances, the salon staff would be sweeping up the clip-
pings and throwing them away.

Animal


Services


changes


OK'd

By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER- Pinellas County
Commissioners unanimously ap-
proved on May 4 several changes to
its Animal Services ordinance.
Not everyone agreed with the
wording for the new tethering law.
Commissioner John Morroni lobbied
to make the county's ordinance
match the city of Seminole's, which
does not allow any tethering.
Morroni was supported by former
Seminole Councilor Dan Hester and
a couple of others who gave public
testimony during the meeting.
However, fellow commissioners
failed to approve his amendment, fa-
voring the rules proposed by staff
that allows for temporary tethering
of animals.
Dr. Dewayne Taylor, assistant di-
rector of Pinellas County Animal
Services, said tethering could be
done responsibly and there was no
reason not to allow people to do so
while performing a specific task and
for a reasonable period of time.
He was supported by Connie
Brooks with SPCA Tampa Bay, who
said that organization supported the
tethering ordinance 100 percent,
and several others.
Commissioner Ken Welch said he
supported the less restrictive lan-
guage because without it some peo-
ple might have to give up their
animals.
Taylor pointed out that the tether-
ing rules were meant to give animal
services staff a way to combat the
problem of people leaving their ani-
mals chained outside 24/7. The or-
dinance says that no dog can be
tethered, fastened, chained, tied or
restrained to a doghouse, tree, fence
or any other stationary object ex-
cept for the temporary allowance.
In addition, dogs can be attached
to a running line, pulley or trolley

Hopeful Tomorrow

Seminole-based national charity

helps out disadvantaged children


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Nestled with-
in a strip mall on Seminole
Boulevard is perhaps Semi-
nole's best-kept secret.
Located in a business dis-
trict at 8994 Seminole Blvd.,
is Hopeful Tomorrow, a na-
tional children's charity that
helps disadvantaged children
reach their full potential
through art, music, dance,
gymnastics and martial arts
programs.
The charity raises money


through donations, fundrais-
ers and grants to send chil-
dren ages 8 and older around
the country to various
schools around the nation for
enriching experiences.
Currently, the charity is
funding 200 children while 35
others are on a list, awaiting fi-
nancial aid. A total of 300
schools participate, allowing
disadvantaged kids to take part
in their activities for $75 per
month.

Sheriff conducts educational forums for county residents


By SUZETTE PORTER
Pinellas County Sheriff Jim Coats wants the public to know
about all the operations and services his office provides.
He said it is especially important that people understand the
extent of his responsibilities as he continues to cut his budget
to deal with the recent shortfalls in revenue.
Coats, along with Chief Deputy Bob Gualitieri, has been
hosting forums all around Pinellas to meet with citizens and
hear their concerns. Two more meetings are scheduled from
5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the following locations.
Tuesday, May 18, Bayside High School, 14405 49th St. N.,
Clearwater
Thursday, May 20, Pasadena Community Church, 227
70th St. S., St. Petersburg
Coats said most everyone was familiar with the role of his
deputies and the patrol cars. However, he said, people are not
aware of his department's other duties, such as to the jail,
court security, processing of warrants, child protection, moni-
toring of sexual predators, transporting prisoners and others.
He said the forums were a way to educate the public and
allow them to ask questions and make suggestions as he con-
tinues to look at ways to make the best use of his dwindling re-
sources. He said it also gave his staff a way to dispel some of
the rumors going around about the budget.
He said thus far the forums had gone well and that some
people had offered some good suggestions.
For the past few years, the Sheriffs Office, as all other coun-

ty departments, has been making drastic cuts to the budget.
Coats said it was very difficult to continue making cuts without
eventually affecting his office's ability to do its job.
For example, last year his office eliminated its DUI team and
DUI arrests are down 65 percent.
He recently submitted his budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year
to County Commission Chair Karen Seel. Coats said he ex-
ceeded the amount necessary to compensate for the decrease
in revenue by reducing his budget by just over $20 million.
Coats said his proposed reductions do not include the full
amount the commission wanted for the stabilization fund.
Coats said despite recent reports that he is calling for an in-
crease in the millage, he would not support any tax increase
until every opportunity for increasing efficiencies had been ex-
hausted.
He said he was concerned about the future for law enforce-
ment.
"Arrests are down 62 percent because we no longer have the
resources," he said.
He said he also reduced his marine unit operations last


month.
He said it was growing more difficult to continue to make
cuts in his workforce.
"For the past three years, going into 2011, we've cut 561 po-
sitions and reduced the budget by $88 million," he said.
However, he's still shy $10 million of what County Adminis-
trator Bob LaSala set as his target amount.
The sheriffs 2009-10 budget totals more than $120 million.
His proposed budget for 2010-11 is just over $98.5 million, still
one of the biggest pieces of the general fund budget.
The sheriffs budget can be divided into three pieces: 50 per-
cent goes for law enforcement, 43 percent to detention and cor-
rections and 7 percent for judicial operations.
The jail currently has 4,151 beds and the average daily pop-
ulation is between 3,100 and 3,200. The county averages more
than 50,000 inmate bookings a year. The jail budget is $102
million. Each inmate costs $126 a day.

John's Pass Bridge construction ahead of schedule


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND The long wait for
the new John's Pass Bridge to open is nearly
over.
Florida Department of Transportation
spokeswoman Kris Carson said the contract
deadline is February and confirmed that
Flatiron Construction of Morrisville, N.C., is
ahead of schedule.
"Flatiron Construction continues to build
the new northbound John's Pass Bridge,"
Carson said in an e-mail. 'The contractor is
building the roadway approaches to the new
northbound bridge and the bridge deck.
"A lot of work under the new bridge still
remains to be done," she added "Bridge
piers from the old bridge must be removed.
The fender system for the new bridge (which
protects the piers from boats) must be fin-
ished. Once this is completed they will
switch all the traffic to the new northbound
bridge and finish the southbound bridge."
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning, who
heard a construction update May 4 from
John Couture, assistant district manager for



Construction at SPC


CHARITY, from page 1


The children are referred to Hopeful To-
morrow through law enforcement and social
service agencies, as well as school officials
and churches.
"We're all responsible to be the best people
we can be," said 29-year-old Lee Caswell,
vice president of the charity. "When you can
make a difference in somebody's life, it's im-
portant. This is how we choose to do it."
Caswell and his mother, Laura Champ,
founded the organization two years ago,
thanks to a $10,000 donation from Laura's
father, Robert Roemer.
From there, the charity has grown quick-
ly. Last year, it brought in $106,000 in do-
nations and grants from the likes of
Walmart, Exxon-Mobil and Target, among
others.
The goal is to increase that figure to $1
million over the next five years.
"Hopefully, we'll keep increasing every
year," said Champ, "because our referrals
are coming in faster than our donations."
The charity was the concept of Champ,
who worked nine years as a director for a
family resource center affiliated with a local
school system in Kentucky. It was there that
she saw the needs of disadvantaged children
who didn't have the resources to enjoy many
of the amenities other kids participate in.
As the president of Hopeful Tomorrow,
she sees the same trend now on a much
larger basis.


HAIR, from page 1


Hairdresser Rolande Krehbiel said the
staff is happy to participate because "it's al-
ways exciting to be involved in something
like this."
Matter of Trust founders got the hair mat
idea from the Ottimat, a similar hair mat in-
vented by Phil McCrory, a hairstylist in
Huntsville, Ala.


Flatiron Construction, said the two north-
bound lanes are expected to open within two
weeks when the southbound bridge will be
closed to install protective fenders.
Minning said the entire project was ex-
pected to be complete by the end of June.
"We are very pleased to learn that the
bridge will be completed ahead of schedule
and that traffic coming into and out of the
north end of Treasure Island will return to
normal," said Minning. "That's a win for
everyone.
If the $77 million project, which began in
January 2006, is finished in late June it will
be complete eight months ahead of sched-
ule.
The project began with the demolition of
the old southbound bridge in 2006. Traffic
was moved to the old northbound span.
A new northbound span opened in August
2008. The new southbound span opened in
2009 and traffic was diverted onto that side
as work began on the approaches to the
northbound span.
When complete, the bridge will feature
dual 12-foot lanes in each direction, 8-foot


"Some days, when you go home, it just
makes you want to hug your own kids," said
Champ, who does all of the organization's
grant writing.
In addition to the grants, she, Caswell and
Caswell's wife Amber help organize fundrais-
ers across the country in cities where the
schools are located. Funds raised in those
cities, are used for programs in those cities.
Other funds are generated locally and are
increasing regularly through the charity's
associations with BNI Networking and the
St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce.
The charity's eight-member board of di-
rectors works in the concession stand at
Tropicana Field and helps out in a variety of
other ways.
"Whatever we need, they're very dedicated
to our needs," said Champ.
The latest fundraising mechanism is the
charity's One Hour's Pay in May program.
Under this plan, employees are asked to do-
nate one hour's pay to the charity. Busi-
nesses that get 100 percent participation
will be awarded a certificate of appreciation.
"We realize in today's economy things are
tough for everyone and many of us just can't
afford to give a large donation," Champ said.
"But if each employee will commit to giving
one hour's pay, together we can make a dif-
ference and have a huge impact on the lives
of the children living in our communities."

Using hair mats for bioremediation of oil
spills uses the hair constructively while re-
ducing the amount of landfill waste, McCro-
ry wrote in a recent online news article.
Human hair doesn't absorb oil but clings
to it. Hair mats can be reused.

TBARTA merges with BACS


The Tampa Bay Area Regional Trans-
portation Authority board of directors agreed
April 30 to merge the operations of Bay Area
Commuter Services into TBARTA, making
TBARTA responsible for a variety of com-
muter services serving Citrus, Hernando,
Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
"TBARTA and BACS have a shared mis-
sion and responsibility of improving mobility
and providing transportation options for
people in the Tampa Bay region," said Ron-
nie Duncan, chairman of the TBARTA board
of directors. "This union will help us in-
crease program effectiveness, decrease over-
all costs and take advantage of efficiencies
which can be accomplished through the co-
location and combination of both organiza-
tions' programs and operations."
Bay Area Commuter Services is one of the
Florida Department of Transportation's nine
commuter assistance programs within the
state. Created in 1992, BACS is a private,
nonprofit organization founded and funded
by the State of Florida Department of Trans-
portation to promote transportation options
to the single-occupant vehicle in the Tampa
Bay area and surrounding counties.
Some of the programs and commuter ser-
vices that TBARTA will continue to provide
include: carpool and commuter vanpool

system as long as it is not attached via a
choke-type, pinch-type, prong-type or im-
properly fitting collar.
Other requirements include that the teth-
er must be at least five times the length of
the dog's body; terminate at both ends with
a swivel; and not weigh more than 1/8 of
the dog's weight.
The dog must not be tethered in a way
that would cause injury, strangulation or
entanglement and it must be free of tangles.
Dogs cannot be left tethered during ex-
treme weather, including extreme heat,
near-freezing temperatures, thunderstorms,
tornadoes, tropical storms or hurricanes,
and the animal must have access to water,
adequate shelter and dry ground.
Puppies less than 6 months old, and
those sick or injured cannot be tethered.
Persons found in violation of the tethering
ordinance could be fined up to $500.
Taylor said enforcement of the tethering
law would come from investigations of com-
plaints and from help from local animal or-
ganizations. To report a person violating the
tethering law, call animal services at 582-
2600.
Several people objected to a proposed
change in holding time for stray animals.
Taylor and his staff had suggested changing
the time that animals with identification are
kept from 10 days to seven days and ani-
mals without identification from five days to
three days.
People said three days wasn't enough
time, even though Taylor said most animals
were claimed within three to four days. The
commission requested that the ordinance be
amended to keep animals without ID for
four days.
Taylor said there was a problem with


matching; working with businesses on pro-
grams such as compressed work week and
variable work hour strategies; teaching
businesses and organizations how to tele-
work; and other transportation mobility,
fuel reduction and congestion reducing
strategies.
Under the merger agreement, the BACS
board of directors will become an advisory
body to TBARTA concerning commuter as-
sistance and mobility programs within the
TBARTA governance and operations struc-
ture.
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Trans-
portation Authority was created by the
Florida Legislature in 2007 to plan and de-
velop a multimodal transportation system
that will connect the seven counties of the
Tampa Bay region.
TBARTA adopted a legislatively-mandated
Regional Transportation Master Plan for the
Tampa Bay region in May 2009.
The goal of the master plan is to engage
the public in developing a vision for regional
integration of transportation systems and
foster partnerships with government agen-
cies and business entities. Moving forward
with the master plan, TBARTA will begin
work on several studies that will be ongoing
in 2010 and 2011.


keeping animals too long at the shelter due
to stress and disease.
"The healthier animals I can get out to
adoptions the better," he said.
One woman complained that animal ser-
vices would not give information about
missing pets over the phone.
Taylor explained that it is difficult to iden-
tify animals from a physical description. He
said he did not want his staff responsible for
telling a caller that their animal was not at
the shelter due to a bad description.
Suggestions were made to seek volunteer
photographers and work on getting the pho-
tos of animals posted on the county's Web
site in real time.
People who have a missing pet can call
the Lost or Found Pets Hotline at 582-2604,
visit the shelter at 12450 Ulmerton Road or
visit www.pcsoweb.com/cares to post a lost
pet's description or photo.
Commissioners listened to supporters of a
change to the definition of vicious animal.
Several told stories about how their beloved
pets had been attacked without cause. One
man was walking his beagle, Molly, when
she was attacked and killed by two pit bulls.
"There was nothing I could do," he said.
A woman told about her dog that was
killed in her own backyard by a dog that
jumped the fence. She said the law prevent-
ed animal services from doing anything
until the aggressive dog had killed twice.
Changing the number of attacks from two
to one would prevent such animals from
getting a second chance to kill again, she
said.
The fourth change to the ordinance
makes it a requirement to submit a written
statement about an incident involving a
dangerous animal within 30 days, which
Taylor said would allow animal services to
deal with those cases more efficiently.

-Police beat


Seminole woman guilty of murder
SEMINOLE A Seminole woman accused of gunning down her
granddaughter's estranged husband in Illinois has been found guilty
of first-degree murder and two counts of solicitation of murder.
Ajury convicted Shirley Skinner, 75, of the crimes May 6 in an Illi-
nois courtroom.
She faces 45 years in prison and will be sentenced June 11, ac-
cording to the State Journal-Register in Springfield, Ill.
Steven Watkins, 32, died from a single gunshot to the back of the
head Nov. 25, 2008, at Skinner's home in Ashland, 1m.
Watkins had gone to the home for a court-ordered visitation that
day. He and Skinner's granddaughter, Jennifer Watkins, were in the
midst of a bitter custody dispute.
Several other family members were at the home at the time of the
killing, but none cooperated with authorities, according to the State
Journal-Register.
Shortly after the slaying, Skinner and her granddaughter traveled
to Seminole, where Skinner owns a mobile home. Authorities arrest-
ed her in October as she left a Clearwater pizza restaurant with fami-
ly members.

Bomb squad responds
to suspicious package
TREASURE ISLAND The Treasure Island Police Department re-
sponded May 10 to a 911 report of a suspicious person, carrying a
package near the Island Inn.
An investigation revealed that 30-year-old Ryan C. Maldonado,
whose last known address was in Treasure Island, made comments
to two passers-by that caused alarm. Maldonado had been acting er-
ratically and inferred that the contents of the package would cause
harm.
Treasure Island police officers detained Maldonado and contacted
the Tampa Police Department Bomb Squad as a precaution. Maldon-
ado refused to speak with officers and paramedics who had respond-
ed to the scene.
Gulf Boulevard was closed in the area of the Island Inn to provide
a safety zone for the bomb squad. Patrons of the Island Inn were
evacuated for their safety, and beachgoers were directed to leave the
safety area.
The Tampa Bomb Squad later determined that the suspicious

Brother tries to impersonate
his twin, officials say
LARGO Twin brothers are in the countyjail after one showed up
in court and tried to tell everyone he was his brother, a court official
said.
According to court spokesman Ron Stuart, one of the brothers,
Matthew Benedict Mauceri, 40, charged with scheme to defraud, was
allegedly flying in from an unknown place and called his twin brother,
Marcus, to tell him he wasn't going to make it to court on time.
Marcus showed up in court and told everyone he was Matthew,
Stuart said.
A fingerprint check revealed that Marcus wasn't Matthew. Judge
Joseph Bulone sentenced Marcus to 179 days on a direct contempt
charge.
Both brothers are now in jail, and Matthew's trial has been contin-
ued.
No other details were available at this time.

Beach.
According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office,
Dan Braden, 64, of Largo, was traveling northbound in a white
Ford van when he struck Kathleen Meana, 56, as she was cross-
ing Gulf Boulevard from west to east.
Deputies said Meana was in the median and not in a desig-
nated crosswalk. She was transported by ambulance to Bayfront
Medical Center where she is reportedly in serious condition with
multiple injuries including broken ribs.

PINELLAS PARK Two men were arrested on April 23 after they
allegedly stole air conditioners and pawned them.
Robert E. Huff, 32, was charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen
property and falsifying a pawn ticket. Robert W. Anderson, 42, was
charged with grand theft. Both were released from the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail in their own recognizance.
Officer Brian Fey said Anderson was moving from an apartment at
3800 67th Ave. when the landlord noticed that two window air condi-
tioners valued at $700 were missing from the building.
Police said Anderson hocked the unit at a local pawn shop.

Man charged with failure
to yield to pedestrians
REDINGTON BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies are in-
vestigating a May 9 vehicle versus pedestrian crash in Redington
Beach that injured a child.
The crash occurred on 163rd Avenue and Gulf Boulevard in Red-
ington Beach at about 3:35 p.m.
According to deputies, 81-year-old Elliott Ellis of St. Petersburg
was northbound in a car on Gulf Boulevard and stopped at the
crosswalk at 163rd. Ellis proceeded onto the crosswalk where Fati-
ma Rapuano was crossing with her two children who were in a
stroller.
As Ellis accelerated onto the crosswalk he struck the stroller. Two-
year-old Sofia Rapuano was thrown from the stroller and received
minor non-life threatening injuries. Four-year-old Salvatore Rapuano
was not injured.
Medical transport was refused. The mother told deputies she
would drive her children to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Get ready

Efforts to promote plug-in electric vehicles
and increase consumers' acceptance of electric
vehicles are under way in the area.
Get Ready Tampa Bay, a coalition of local
governments, regional agencies, businesses
and other entities, is committed to preparing
the area for the early release and integration of
plug-in electric vehicles.
Some of the goals are to attract vehicles
manufacturers to early-release vehicles in the
Tampa Bay area, create a positive economic
impact and green jobs growth, reduce vehicle
emissions, increase use of alternative and or
innovative energy and increase energy inde-
pendence from foreign sources.
Such efforts are prudent because the federal
government has set a target of at least 1 mil-
lion plug-in electric vehicles in service by
2015, reducing the reliance on imported petro-
leum products.
Studies show that the use of electric vehi-
cles could significantly reduce greenhouse gas
emissions.
The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council
is providing strong support for the program,
and it would behoove all local governments to
keep informed about issues pertaining to vehi-
cles.
Among those issues are educating electri-
cians and building inspectors to expedite the
permitting and installation process and updat-
ing codes to accommodate the installation of
charging stations in public and private loca-
tions.


Beacon, May 13, 2010


The extent to which electric vehicles will af-
fect the future of transportation in the world
remains to be seen.
Nevertheless, they're coming.

Lester Aradi has provided strong level-head-
ed leadership during his nine years as police
chief for the city of Largo.
Retiring June 1 after a 36-year career in law
enforcement, Aradi has brought many im-
provements to the police department, such as
new technology. His involvement in the com-
munity and support for many important initia-
tives has made a difference beyond the city's
borders, such as having a lead role in estab-
lishing the Silver Alert program two years ago
to help locate missing seniors.
Aradi's ability to be flexible also has been an
asset for the city, particularly during the lean
fiscal years. The department continues to pro-
vide good service, despite undergoing budget
cuts.
Meanwhile, City Manager Mac Craig ap-
pears to have made the right move in naming
John Carroll as the city's next police chief.
Chief Deputy Carroll, a longtime Largo resi-
dent and 30-year veteran of the department,
has an outstanding track record and the re-
spect of city officials.
He has received high marks in his evalua-
tions over the years and, according to Aradi,
"lives and breathes good leadership."
In Aradi's own words, he leaves the depart-
ment in extremely capable hands.

The sky won't fall if
Amendment 4 passes
Re: "Council says no to Amendment 4" -
Seminole Beacon, May 4
Editor:
Opponents of Amendment 4, the develop-
ment and home building industry, have been
successful in scaring many local governments
with misinformation. Unfortunately, many
local governments aren't even researching
these bogus claims. They're just accepting
them and passing resolutions saying that the
sky will fall if Amendment 4 is passed.
Overdevelopment helped crash Florida's
economy. We currently have over 400,000 va-
cant dwellings. Local governments helped
create the building boom by charging artifi-
cially low impact fees to builders along with
not forcing them to fully fund the needed in-
frastructure (roads, schools, water, sewer,
safety). In spite of what politicians tell their
constituents, development doesn't pay for it-
self, and there are numerous studies that
have proven that (in Jacksonville, Sarasota,
Fort Myers, Hillsborough to name a few). In
both commercial and residential development
it costs government more to provide the ser-
vices than what it receives in the new tax rev-
enue that's generated.
Our long range growth plans that are re-
quired by state law are meant to place ser-
vices and population in an organized and
efficient manner so as to improve our quality
of life, prevent sprawl and keep taxes lower.
But these well thought out plans are con-
stantly being changed every time a developer
wants to build something that conflicts with
existing plans. Instead of asking developers to
conform to our plans, our local governments
quickly cave-in and approve the plan
changes. This is occurring in every county of
Florida at an alarming rate because our
politicians can't seem to say no to developers.
If you look at most politicians' campaign con-
tribution records, they receive a sizable
amount from development interests (in some
cases more than 50 percent). Consider that
fact along with the fact that they approve
most of the plan changes that are submitted
by developers. As an example, the Hillsbor-
ough County Commission approves over 92
percent of submitted plan changes.
Most counties are in dire straits because of
overdevelopment with inadequate infrastruc-
ture. Does the Legislature, the local politi-
cians, the chambers of commerce offer a
solution? No, their solution is more of the
same. They say, don't change anything ... we
like it this way ... we need to make it easier
for developers so they can quickly build more
homes ... we'll have to raise your taxes to fix
roads and provide basic services, but it's
worked well for us here in government and
our business partners love it, too.
What will Amendment 4 do?


It will provide a simple and balanced ap-
proach to planning for our communities
It adds only more steps to the existing
process for changing growth plans
Citizens will have a say in the future of
their communities. Shouldn't we have mean-
ingful input into deciding where the next
3,000 home subdivision will go, or the next
airport, or the next supermall?
It will help force business interests/de-
velopers to stick to a community's growth
plan
Local governments will be more cautious
in approving developer-initiated changes be-
cause citizens will have the ability to veto bad
growth decisions
As the number of privately-initiated
amendments goes down, process costs will
decrease. Governments will be able to actual-
ly do more long range planning, as a result
The scrubbing, vetting and technical re-
view of changes by county/city planners will
remain in place
The approval of plan changes will still be
in the hands of elected officials as it is today.
The only difference is that voters will have
the option of agreeing or disagreeing with the
officials when the item reaches the ballot, as
the last step in the process.
The only changes that the public will vote
on will be future land use changes on their
respective growth plans. Voters will not have
to vote on any other changes to the plans.
They will not vote on zoning, rezoning, vari-
ances, building permits, etc. Depending on
the size of the county, the estimated number
of ballot items is from one to five items per
election cycle.
Amendment 4 will not stop anyone from
building. Florida is "shovel ready" as we
speak. It does not require a change in the
growth plan to build a building. Current land
use designations that are already in place
across all of the counties in Florida would
allow enough building to accommodate an-
other 100+ million people, without ever mak-
ing another change to the growth plans.
According to data provided by the state's De-
partment of Community Affairs, in the last
four years commercial pre-approvals have in-
creased exponentially more than 1.3 bil-
lion-square-feet of floor area, which would
equate to 13,000 Walmarts. Pre-approved
land is everywhere. When the market re-
bounds there will be nothing to stop busi-
ness from building.
Look at your own community. The bad
growth decisions that we have to live with are
all too obvious. Amendment 4 is needed. We
need a vote on growth.

Facebook


Facebook has been around
for several years. During that
time I kept hearing of how
popular and successful it has
been. So, finally, a couple of
weeks ago, I joined. By now
I'm starting to wonder what
all the fuss is about.
One major goal of belonging
to Facebook is to claim as
many "friends" as possible.
The definition of "friend" is
quite flexible. A person can be
listed as one's friend just by
saying so, or agreeing to be
listed. Photographs of each
friend are encouraged. Once a
number of friends has been
assembled and listed, you're
ready to proceed. The ques-
tion is, proceed to what?
What are the purposes of
Facebook?
In the News Feed section of
my Facebook site, a woman
(unknown to me) has asked
how she should get rid of a
hair stuck in her throat. This
elicited a number of respons-
es from other persons, result-
ing in back-and-forth
chit-chat that sounded as if it
had been lifted from Twitter.
Another "feed" by a Tampa
nephew of mine was this
statement: "Guns don't kill
people. Dads of pretty daugh-
ters do." A degree of truth in
that, and I must assume that
Facebook is an outlet for
opinions, large and small,
dealing with guns, throat hair
removal and anything else a
person may want to say. Sort
of like talk radio.
Several people had entries
dealing with Farmville. I gath-
er that's a mythical place, sort
of a game in which partici-
pants grow crops and tend
animals.
Most subscribers to Face-
book are caught between two
conflicting drives. One is to
reveal themselves and make
contact with other humans.


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


The second is to keep from
telling too much about them-
selves. Or so it seems to me.
Just this afternoon I heard a
TV warning to Facebook sub-
scribers, telling them not to
publicly state when they're
going to be away on vacation.
That could be an invitation to
burglars to rummage through
your house.
Each Facebook subscriber
is encouraged to give basic in-
formation about himself/her-
self. But that data need not to
be truthful. And, indeed, per-
haps it shouldn't be. All sorts
of predators are out there -
sex perverts, insurance sales-
men, religious proselytizers -
ready to glom on to Facebook
members who give too many
facts.
Facebookers who list bla-
tantly false information are
not likely to be questioned on
it. I gave my birth year as
1902; only one of my friends
noticed it. My grandson, aged
13, listed his marital status
as "widower."
Each Facebook profile sec-
tion has space in which you
can name your favorite
movies, books, and activities
and interests, plus your reli-
gious and political leanings. I
filled out that space generous-
ly, assuming that out there in
Facebook's global network
there might be a few people
with interests common to my
own who'd contact me to
swap hello's. So far no one
has. I guess I should have
listed throat hairs as a con-
cern.
What troubles me most
about Facebook are the indi-

cations that, unless you are
aware of the privacy settings
available to each user, the
outside world can easily ob-
tain information about which
Web sites you visit. That's al-
most the same as letting out-
siders read your most private
thoughts. Newcomers to
Facebook (and this includes
me) would be well advised to
do some studying before
jumping into the action by
posting and befriending every-
one in sight. The tab labeled
"Account," when clicked, gives
you a dropdown menu whose
"Privacy Settings" and "Help
Center" provide all sorts of
useful data. I plan to do some
serious homework there in
coming weeks.
At this stage I'm tempted to
regard Facebook as a harm-
less, somewhat gratifying
time-waster. As I review my
list of friends (both actual and
would-be), I see that I already
have phone numbers or e-
mail addresses for most of
them. This raises the question
of why I should bother with
Facebook to keep in touch
with them, especially when
my messages to and from
them will be on display to the
eyeballs of every Facebook
subscriber from here to Bei-
jing.
But I could be wrong.
Shortsighted. Completely
missing the Facebook boat.
For all I know, Facebook
could be my breakthrough
out of my lifelong introverted
lifestyle into a new world of
unlimited acquaintances,
stimulating ideas and Inter-
net adventures. Time will tell.
It always does. But often it
tells us too late.
Hey, I think I'll put that lit-
tle pearl of wisdom on my
Facebook page.

My mother's stories


Mother's Day and my
birthday always fall in the
same week. This year, 27
doesn't invoke the breathless
anticipation of youth, allow-
ing for the opportunity to ac-
tually reflect on both events.
Two women's stories inter-
twining into one.
As a little girl, I cherished
bedtime rituals with both
parents: Storytime with dad
as we read countless classics
together, one chapter at a
time; quiet time with mom as
she rubbed my back and we
talked about the day. But
one of my favorite rituals
with mom was when I would
ask her to tell me stories of
when she was a little girl.
I loved to imagine my mom
as a girl my age small,
quiet, imaginative, her raven
hair glistening in the Nebras-
ka sun on her grandparents'
farm, where many of her sto-
ries took place. Delightful
misadventures with her two
brothers and her best friend,
Allison, always thrilled me.
One summer, mom and
her older brother, Chris,
heard their grandfather com-
plain about the weasels get-
ting into their crops. Being
loving, concerned grandchil-
dren, they wanted to help.
They'd build weasel traps.
They dug holes and carefully
hid the opening with a layer
of sticks and brush. That'd
catch those blasted weasels,
and oh, wouldn't grandpa be
so proud?
Perhaps "proud" wasn't the
appropriate word. "Livid,"
"infuriated," or "exasperated"
were much more fitting the
next day after his tractor fell
into their weasel trap, bend-
ing the axle.
Another time, Chris, al-
ways up for torturing his lit-
tle sister, hid in the chicken
coop and cried out in a pan-
icked voice, "Come quick,
Ginevilve! Help! No, there's
no time to grab shoes." My
worried mother ran to her
brother's aid, chicken poop
squishing between her bare
toes. Her concern melted into
anger and betrayal as her
brother's laughter echoed
through the coop.
Mom and her friend, Alli-
son, also found plenty of
mischief all on their own. Not
that they meant to cause
trouble. As conscientious lit-
tle girls, they knew it was
dangerous to play with fire or
the stove, but they couldn't
fight their craving for
s'mores. They did know,
however, how to use the
toaster safely. Therefore, they
didn't think anything of it
when they popped a few
marshmallows into the toast-
er. Until disaster ensued.
And they'd ruined Allison's
mother's toaster.

eat.
Kids also love stories that
make them say "Ewww," so
of course I delighted in the
time when mom's family had
a rabbit as a pet who some-
times hopped around the
house. My mom's little broth-
er, Tony, was a baby at the
time. A baby who loved
raisins. Yeah. Those little
round, brown things he
picked up from the floor and
ate were NOT raisins,
though. "Eeewwww!"
Animal stories were always
a hit as well. I loved hearing
about my mom's cats and
kittens, especially because
until my parents divorced,
we weren't allowed to get a
cat because of my dad's aller-
gies. My grandpa had built
mom a treehouse dollhouse,
complete with tiny windows
with curtains and window
boxes. Her kittens loved to
crawl inside any of the tree-
house's three stories and
stick their tiny paws out of
the windows to play. I always
thought of that when I played
with the treehouse after she
passed it down to me.
Perhaps part of the reason
I loved mom's stories so
much is because they were
my first glimpse of her other
than her exalted role as
Mom. Maybe, just maybe,
she was also a girl like me.
Mom and I have different
yet shared stories and have

taxpayers will get hammered with greatly increased costs
every election cycle.
Any entity that wants a favorite son to represent its
viewpoint even if the entity is from another political dis-
trict must be expected to pay the costs for a larger num-
ber of influenced votes to be cast, counted, etc. Taxpayers
and voters will be increasingly deluged with even more
endless campaign rhetoric, promises, etc. and should not
be required to have to pay for that privilege.

None of their business
Editor:
Everyone is entitled to their opinion on this matter of
prayer at the council meetings. Freedom of speech and re-
ligion are guarantees that we all cherish.
I do have an issue though that caught my attention in
the article. There were speakers from Odessa, Tampa and
St. Petersburg there that were protesting the prayers. I
have a problem with that. This is my city. I live here, you
don't. Go voice your opinions to your city council meetings.
Why are we wasting council time on listening to speakers
who don't even live in our city? Citizens of Pinellas Park
should be the ones who should have a say at Pinellas Park
City Council meetings. I am not going to Odessa to voice
my opinion on any issue there. It is none of my business.
Let's have citizens of Pinellas Park voice there opinions
and concerns with our City Council.

Masonic Lodge
celebrates 60 years
MADEIRA BEACH Gulf
Beach Masonic Lodge No.
291, 14020 Marguerite Drive,
held a 60-year anniversary
celebration dinner at the Ma-
sonic Temple on April 29.
More than 100 members,
family and friends were on
hand for this special event
and enjoyed a wonderful din-
ner prepared by Brother John
Anthony and his wife Vickie.
After dinner the Lodge Secre-
tary, Howard Knapp, gave a
talk on the history of Gulf
Beach Lodge. Also attending
were Ed Street, District
Deputy Grand Master and
James Clouser, District In-
structor.
Gulf Beach Lodge was
chartered in 1950 and began
meeting at the Church By The


Sea on Gulf Boulevard in
Madeira Beach. Soon after it
received its charter, the lodge
broke ground for a new Ma-
sonic temple on a lot donated
by Brother Julius McCrocklin,
a member of the lodge. The
temple was constructed com-
pletely by members of the
lodge and was completed in
1952.
The lodge has been a part
of the Adopt-a-Highway pro-
gram for many years and
takes care of the periodic
clean up of portions of Gulf
Boulevard and the Tom Stew-
art Causeway. The lodge is a
strong supporter of many
charitable organizations such
as the American Heart Associ-
ation, PARC, the American
Lung Association, the St. Pe-
tersburg Free clinic, and
many others.

Redington Beach moves ahead

on pay increase for commission


By MELISSA LATTMAN

REDINGTON BEACH The Redington
Beach Town Commission will start the
process to increase its compensation some-
thing that has not happened in 34 years.
The commission decided at its May 4 meet-
ing to have the town attorney draft an ordi-
nance to increase the mayor's compensation
to $500 monthly and commission compensa-
tion to $300 each month.
The current monthly mayoral compensation
is $100 and $50 for the commission.
Residents at meetings in April suggested
the compensation change. Resident Poul Mad-
sen said "I think the increase in salaries is
way overdue."
In other Barrier Island communities where
the boards are compensated, mayoral month-
ly pay ranges from $450 in Indian Rocks
Beach to $900 in Indian Shores. For commis-
sioners/councilors the monthly rates range
from $300 in North Redington Beach to $650
in Redington Shores. Some communities also
include medical and pension benefits.
"None of us serve for the compensation but
if it is at comparative amounts (as nearby
towns), I don't think it's out of line," Mayor
Nick Simons said.
If an ordinance to increase commission
compensation passes, residents would vote in
November on the increase. Voters rejected in-
creasing the rates most recently in March
2009.
The commission discussed a finance com-

mittee suggestion to make the mayoral and
commission rates as separate ballot ques-
tions. The commission decided to keep the
rate increases in one ordinance.
"It seems like one issue. It deals with com-
pensation. If (the mayoral and commission
rates are) separated we could have severe in-
equity between (mayoral and commission
rates)," said Commissioner Tom Dorgan.
In other matters:
The commission appointed James Wiggers
to the Board of Adjustment. He has served
previously as an alternate on that board.
The commission appointed Mary Beth
Liermann as an alternate on the Board of Ad-
justment.
Representatives from Verizon came to
gauge interest and answer questions on bring-
ing Verizon FiOS to town. The service should
be available within a year possibly sooner.
A pair of recycling cans have been in-
stalled by beach access points. More may be
added depending on how the recycling pro-
gram goes Vice Mayor Fred Steiermann said.
The Town Commission discussed and will
review at its next meeting a resolution calling
for a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico until safety is guaranteed.

Treasure Island OKs consultant for Vision Plan


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND City commissioners
voted 4-1 on April 20 to pass a resolution giv-
ing City Manager Reid Silverboard the authori-
ty to negotiate a contract with a consultant for
help with the city's Vision Plan update.
At a recent city workshop, commissioners
selected Pinellas County-based Collaborative
Labs, which bid $25,000 for the job, over Cre-
ative Solutions of Tallahassee, which bid
$45,250.
The city has budgeted $15,000 for the ser-
vices and hopes to make up the additional
$10,000 through community donations.
"Is this $15,000 well spent?" asked Com-
missioner Phil Collins. "What does it cover and
will the report be complete when the money
runs out?"
'There's only $15,000 in funding," said Sil-
verboard. "I can't print the other $10,000."
Mayor Bob Minning explained that $15,000
would cover through three public sessions and
the remaining $10,000 would cover reports
and a conclusion.
"I think it's a good investment," Minning
said.
Former Mayor Mary Maloof, chairwoman of
the Vision Plan steering committee, said she
was pleased the City Commission moved for-
ward with the project.
"It's very vital for the community," Maloof
said.
However, Commissioner Alan Bildz wasn't
convinced.
"How much do you have pledged toward the
$10,000," Bildz asked Maloof.
She replied that Tony Amico, owner of
Caddy's on the Waterfront, had pledged
$1,000 and no other pledges had been re-
ceived.
Collaborative Labs, which is affiliated with
St. Petersburg College, will be contracted to
provide advice in assisting Maloofs committee
in planning the process.
The city's Vision Plan was last done in 1998.


It will target the possible direction money will
be spent over the next 10 years.
This type of work is nothing new for Collab-
orative Labs, which has been involved in 425
such jobs over the past 5 1/2 years.
In other action, the City Commission:
Accepted a $4,000 check from the Gulf
Beaches Rotary Club for its portion of the pro-
ceeds from the recent Rotary Tennis and Golf
Challenge, which was co-sponsored by the Ro-
tary Club and the city.
Granted a variance request to Richard and
Sally Ann Richardson of 371 Bay Plaza on
Sunset Beach to construct a swimming pool at
the rear of their residence. Commissioners al-
lowed a 5-foot variance on the normal 10-foot
setback from a seawall. The process began in
2008 and had the support of city staff and
City Attorney Maura Kiefer. The measure
passed 4-1 with Bildz voting against it.
Accepted the annual audit results from
the accounting firm of Davidson, Jamieson
and Cristini of Dunedin.
Voted 4-1 to extend the contract of David-
son, Jamieson and Cristini for another year.
Commissioner Carol Coward, who pointed to
the firm's cavalier attitude, voted against it.
Approved a resolution approving $5,000
toward the $10,000 cost of fireworks on the
Fourth of July. The other $5,000 will be paid
by Treasure Island resident Bill Edwards, said
Dominique Reiter, president of the Treasure
Island Chamber of Commerce. The measure
passed 4-1 with Bildz voting no.
Voted unanimously to pass a resolution
adopting the Local Mitigation Strategy, a
county-wide strategy designed for a more dis-
aster-resistant community for future pre-dis-
aster mitigation planning and post-disaster
redevelopment. Local LMS updates are re-
quired by the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency and state of Florida every five
years.
Approved a resolution giving the Depart-
ment of Public Works the authority to increase
the funding for four Gulf Boulevard cross-

spill.
Unanimously passed a resolution modify-
ing a stormwater drainage project on

Beach, into two phases. The $300,000 first


phase is budgeted this year and will be reim-
bursed 50 percent through a cooperative
funding process with the Southwest Florida
Water Management District. The second
phase is planned in 2011-12.
Unanimously passed a resolution that
refers a revision in the city's regulations on

ning and Zoning Board. The city's land devel-
opment regulations currently do not allow

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Finding the Right Doctor To Care For
Your Smile
That may sound like an obvious title for an article all about myself But I senously think
it is an important question I know some folks who choose their medical care by looking for
the most appealing ad in the yellow pages I suggest a little more research, especially when
you are looking for a health-centered or cosmetic dentist
Here is a quick checklist you could look through when selecting your dentist.
Be direct Ask the doctor to discuss training and credentials with you Don't be
intimidated This is really important because cosmetic dentistry is not a board-certified
specialty That means that any dentist can call him or herself a cosmetic dentist with no more
than basic dental school education There is
something to say for years of experience and training
Be certain that the before and after photos belong
to real patients of that particular doctor Dentists can
purchase stock photos for advertising purposes, so be
sure of what you are looking at
The best dentistry comes from focused attention
on an individual patient A busy, bustling practice
means that the dentist is required to check on many
patients throughout the day Your family deserves a
doctor who can spend time with you without
interruption or rushing
Look for a practice that utilizes up to date
modern equipment Used with skill, technology
allows dentists to be more accurate, more conservative
in care, and keeps your procedure as comfortable as possible
SFinally, good communication skills are critical for the treatment to be a success The
doctor must listen and understand the goals and desires of the patient so the outcome is
predictable and meets the patient's expectations
With just a little homework up front, you'll be sure to find a dentist who combines
training, skill, artistry and style for great results and beautiful health
Here's the bit about myself.
I really do care about my patients They are my ultimate prnonty, and I am passionate
about learning everything there is to know so I can give them the best that dentistry has to
offer This keeps myself and my staff informed on the very latest advances and techniques I
always listen to your needs and answer all your questions
I grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the Umversity of Maryland Dental School in
1981 My wife Kathy, an RN at Morton Plant, and I moved to Florida shortly afterwards
We have four children Our oldest son is a pilot in the US Navy, next is in construction
management and living in New York City, the third is studying Architecture All are
Umversity of Flonda Gators Our daughter is a high school student
I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Flonda Dental Association, and
the Academy of General Dentistry, and have done additional training in cosmetic and
neuromuscular dentistry at the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental
Studies In addition to this training, I have studied with the American Academy of Dental
Sleep Medicine and orthodontics at the Umted States Dental Institute
I love what I do, and I love my patients

Club, 200 S. McMullen-Booth Road.
Seating for performances Thursday through Sunday is 4
p.m. Seating for matinees Thursday and Saturday is 11 a.m.
Admission is $29.90 a person. Call 446-5898 or visit
www.earlybirddinnertheatre.com.
"Funny Money" is a Ray Cooney farce which originally pre-
miered in London in 1994. The play was adapted for the big
screen in 2006, starring Chevy Chase and Penelope Ann Miller.
When Henry Perkins, a
rather docile, good-tempered
public accountant, grabs the
wrong briefcase and stum- Curtain Call
bles on a significant amount
of money, he sees it as his Lee Clark Zumpe
only chance at escaping his
routine middle-class exis-
tence.
Henry lays out a perfect scheme in which he and his wife,
Jean, abscond with the money, first to Barcelona and then on
to other ports-of-call, living a life of luxury.
Nothing ever goes as planned in a farce, though, does it?
Almost immediately, all kinds of obstacles are thrown in
Henry's path to the charmed life starting with a visit by a De-
tective Sergeant Davenport, who wants to question the accoun-
tant about his curious behavior in a public restroom earlier
that evening.
Add to the mix dinner guests Vic and Betty Johnson, who
had planned to celebrate Henry's birthday; Billie, an impatient
but sly taxi driver; Detective Sergeant Slater, who believes
Henry's been murdered; and the obtuse Mr. Big, whose looking
for his misplaced "brerfcurse."
Like most farces, the play involves unlikely situations, mis-
taken identity and duplicity. What makes "Funny Money" more
amusing is that Henry and Jean inadvertently concoct a differ-
ent set of lies for each new character stepping onto the stage.
Watching them struggle to keep their stories straight is price-
less.
Michael DuMouchel takes on the role of Henry in "Funny
Money." In his first appearance at Early Bird Dinner Theatre,
he places the character at the center of the storm, playing it
relatively cool while others spin out of control around him.
Jonelle Meyer, most recently seen in 'There's a Burglar in
My Bed," plays Jean. Her boisterous and entertaining perfor-
mance proves to be the production's centerpiece: She alone

gets to play both an author of the absurd untruths and a first-
time inebriate.
As Davenport, Brent Ballard conjures a cunningly crooked
cop, less threatening than impish. There's a hint of John Cleese
in his mannerisms and delivery.
Rounding out the cast are Jennifer Sloane as Billie, Barbara
Anthony as Betty, Rick Kistner as Vic, Tracy Borgatti as Slater
and Joseph Alan Johnson as Mr. Big. All are Early Bird Dinner


Theater veterans and all give marvelous supporting perfor-
mances.
Audiences will find much to enjoy about this production,
from the string of lies which range from improbable to prepos-
terous, to the misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Re-
curring changes in fortune and wives keep viewers guessing
whether Henry will see his dreams fulfilled ... or return to his
dull, conventional lifestyle.

Looking ahead
United Kingdom's National Theatre NT Live Series will continue
with a live performance of the play "Habit of Art" broadcast on
a cinema screen at the theater. This new play by Alan Bennett,
which opened in the Lyttelton Theatre in November 2009, is di-
rected by Nicholas Hytner. Benjamin Britten, sailing uncom-
fortably close to the wind with his new opera, "Death in Venice,"
seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend, W.H.
Auden. During this imagined meeting, their first for 25 years,
they are observed and interrupted by, amongst others, their fu-
ture 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.

ported by the singles "New Day for You" and 'Time and Tide,"
the record became a hit in Europe and America, where the
album went platinum. Reunited with Danny White and Mark

Opening this week

Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott re-imagine history's best known archer in 'Robin Hood'


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:

'Robin Hood'
Genre: Action/adventure
Cast: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max
von Sydow, William Hurt and Mark Addy
Director: Ridley Scott
Rated: PG-13
"Robin Hood" chronicles the life of an expert
archer, previously interested only in self-
preservation, from his service in King
Richard's army against the French.
Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Not-
tingham, a town suffering from the corruption
of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation,
where he falls for the spirited widow Lady
Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and
motivations of this crusader from the forest.
Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and
salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang
whose lethal mercenary skills are matched
only by its appetite for life. Together, they
begin preying on the indulgent upper class to
correct injustices under the sheriff.
With their country weakened from decades
of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of
the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies
from within and threats from afar, Robin and
his men heed a call to ever greater adventure.
This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off
to protect their country from slipping into


bloody civil war and return glory to England
once more.

'Just Wright'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Pat-
ton, Michael Landes and Pam Grier
Director: Sanaa Hamri
Rated: PG
"Just Wright" stars Queen Latifah as Leslie
Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist
who gets the dream job of working with NBA
All-Star Scott McKnight (Common).
All is going well until Leslie finds herself
falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between
the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside
her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures,
McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of
Leslie's gorgeous childhood friend Morgan
(Paula Patton), who has her sights set on
being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to
play the role of "best friend" forever or will
Scott finally see that what he always wanted is
right in front of him? Set against the exciting
world of championship basketball, the game of
love takes on the battle of the sexes in the ro-
mantic sports comedy "Just Wright," starring
three of Hollywood's most charismatic person-
alities as they navigate the full-court-press of
love.

'Letters to Juliet'
Genre: Romantic comedy
See OPENING, page 17

Christopher Egan and Amanda Seyfried star in "Letters to Juliet."


OPENING, from page 16


Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave,
Gael Garcia Bernal, Franco Nero and Chris
Egan
Director: Gary Winick
Rated: PG
When a young American (Amanda Seyfried)
travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-
crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and
Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers
who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice
about love.
After answering one letter dated 1957, she
inspires its author (Vanessa Redgrave) to trav-
el to Italy in search of her long-lost love, and
sets off a chain of events that will bring a love
into both their lives unlike anything they ever
imagined.
The following will open in limited release.

Not rated
After months of being alone, sad, busy,
sidetracked, free, lofty, late and away from his
kids, Lenny (Ronald Bronstein), 34 with gray-
ing frazzled hair, picks his kids up from
school.
Every year he spends a couple of weeks
with his sons Sage (Sage Ranaldo), 9, and
Frey (Frey Ranaldo), 7. Lenny juggles his kids
and everything else all within a midtown stu-
dio apartment in New York City. He ultimately
faces the choice of being their father or their
friend with the idea that these two weeks
must last six months. In these two weeks, a
trip upstate, visitors from strange lands, a
mother, a girlfriend, "magic" blankets, and
complete lawlessness seem to take over their
lives. The film is a swan song to excuses and
irresponsibilities; to fatherhood and self-creat-
ed experiences, and to what it's like to be
truly torn between being a child and being an
adult.

Roundup

Companies, Rays honor soldiers
The Tampa Bay Rays have teamed up with Raytheon and
Grow Financial in the past four years to honor the soldiers at
MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
At each of the 81 Ray's home games at Tropicana Field, 24
tickets are given to active duty soldiers and their families.
"It's one way of saying thank you to the troops stationed at
MacDill for their many contributions to military operations
around the world," said Mitch Lee, Raytheon St. Petersburg
site executive, in a news release. "MacDill is headquarters for
U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command
and has thousands of soldiers who protect our freedom."
'We wanted to show our appreciation and Take them out to
the Ball Game'," said Lee. 'The Rays have a long tradition of
supporting our troops and agreed to extend the promotion by
giving the soldiers special seating in their very own section
called Macdillville, which is right next to the bullpen in right
field. And to add that personal touch, at each game different
Raytheon and Grow Financial employees greet the soldiers and
personally thank them for their dedication and sacrifice."
In addition to providing special seating to watch the action
up close, the Rays work with the video services unit of the U.S.
Army and provide special recognition for the soldiers' families
called "Sunday Salute." At several Sunday games, a surprise
video message from a soldier stationed overseas is played on
the giant Raysvision board.

sion). Visit www.gcsupc.com.

Wait and see


I recently sat alone at a table in a restaurant, waiting for my
friend. There's nothing unusual about waiting. People wait on
and wait for other people all the time.
I pondered a topic for this week's story. Ah, I've got it! Bot-
tlenose dolphins wait for each other, too.
Sometimes waiting is obvious. About a month ago, dolphin
mother P and her current calf Peewee returned from their win-
ter hiatus elsewhere.
Peewee was not madly leaping like she did in Dolphin
Watch's The Princess and the P. This time, apparently free of
those ticklish remoras that plagued her early calfhood, she re-
mained quietly at her moth-
er's side.
P and Peewee were not Dolphin
alone. A local bull we call
DD2 swam parallel to them, Watch
although he stayed some dis- Ann Weaver
tance away. They headed
south along a coastline lined
with untouched Florida woodlands.
This particular stretch of water forms a straight highway of
water for some three miles.
South of the wooded shoreline, the highway becomes
"pocked" with small coves and inlets, like so many stores and
restaurants dotting a human roadway.
P and Peewee punched into each inlet in turn, systematically
searching for food. DD2 waited for them outside, milling around
the highway by swimming without going anywhere. When P
and Peewee came out, all three resumed their southward travel
to the next inlet. Again DD2 waited outside.
At the third inlet, boat Captain John Heidemann observed
that DD2 looked like a man waiting outside each store that
his wife and kids stopped to shop.
Last week, DD2 waited outside in a long deep channel else-
where in the study area until mother-calf pair J and Juno re-
turned from "shopping".
Sometimes waiting is only obvious in retrospect. I remem-


ber the first time it occurred to me that the dolphins I was
watching might be waiting for something. In Dolphin Watch's
Ocean Commotion, then mother-calf pair P and PC were in a
shallow passage between a seagrass meadow and a junk spoil
island. They idled about until DD2 came up. Bull and calf so-
cialized gently. As mom joined in, two more mother-calf pairs
pulled up, X with her Little X and Split with her young Steve.
They merged, mingled, and separated easily. It was their
relative immobility in the same spot of water that suggested
they might be waiting for something.

When a torrid yellow boat that's great for surfing (if you're a
dolphin) came chugging up from the south, the dolphins
stopped socializing and lined up side by side. When the giant
boat came abreast, they were ready to rush it and ride it down
the way. Ah, they'd been waiting for the surfing boat!
All the dolphins I've mentioned today still live around here,
although PC currently appears to be making a fine living
south of the Treasure Island Causeway. The exception is
Steve. We haven't seen him for two years. I can't wait to see
him again.

Must be the season

of the itch


Our pets suffered a double
whammy in the last few
months. The extra cold spell
this winter has led to even
more blooms on the already
prolific Florida foliage. More
blooms means more pollen,
and more pollen means more
scratching for our pets suffer-
ing from atopy, or an allergy
to substances in the environ-
ment. Unfortunately, the cold
seemed only to slightly delay
Florida's massive flea popula-
tion, which is now in full force
as well.
Dogs suffering atopy often
bite and chew at their feet,
which is the part of their body
in contact with the pollen
laden ground when they go
outside. Many dogs suffering
from flea bites bite and
scratch around their back
end and tail. The classic hot
spots, which are areas of
moist skin infection, are often
flea-related. Cats suffering
from fleas often have military
dermatitis, which are multiple
pin-prick scabs around the
neck and the base of the tail.
Not all of our pets will follow
this stereotypical pattern, as
each allergic pet has the po-
tential to be a little different,
but looking for these patterns
give us a good starting point.
Diagnosing the flea allergic
pet can be especially frustrat-
ing, because the most allergic,
and consequently most itchy,
pets may never have an actu-
al flea found on them. These
dogs and cats have a huge re-
action from a single flea bite,
and are very aware of how se-
vere their reaction will be. If
these pets feel anything like a
flea on them, they will become
frantic trying to get it off, and
can often be fairly successful.
These pets many be itching
constantly and even damag-
ing themselves, but you will
never find a live flea on them.
This is similar to people with
allergies; if someone was se-
verely allergic to ant bites,
even thinking they feel an ant
crawling on them would make
them desperate to get the in-
sect off.
Treating fleas requires a
multi-pronged approach.
There are now many different
topical and oral flea medica-
tions for pets that kill fleas
including Advantage, Front-
line, Capstar, Comfortis, Vec-
tra, Promeris, Revolution and
others. These medications all

work in different ways, and
may vary in effectiveness de-
pending on your individual
pet and his or her environ-
ment, Additionally, there are
medications that prevent flea
reproduction, such as Pro-
gram or Sentinel, or the
sprays with active ingredients
such as Nylar and Metho-
preme. Using both a medica-
tion that kills fleas as well as
something that halts repro-
duction is known as Integrat-
ed Pest Management, or IPM.
There has been much dis-
cussion recently about
whether fleas are becoming
resistant to individual med-
ications; whether this is hap-
pening or not, we should
assume that all flea medi-
cines will have a failure rate,
even if it is very low. A med-
ication that kills 99.9 percent
of fleas sounds great until a
squirrel, opossum or stray
cat drops 2,000 flea eggs in
your yard; then killing only
99.9 percent allows for sur-
viving fleas, and the life cycle
of these pests to continue.
IPM sterilizes any surviving
fleas, stopping the problem
before the infestation reaches
your house or yard.
While IPM may stop an in-
festation, for the super-flea-
allergic pet, even a single flea
bite may be too much. Some
medicines don't mix, so get
professional advice before at-
tempting this.
Living in the sub-tropical
weather of Florida has its ad-
vantages, but we also have to
deal with a large number of
parasites and pests, includ-
ing fleas. If your pet has not
had to deal with these little
monsters yet, count yourself
lucky and be vigilant. For
most Florida pet owners, it is
not a matter of if, but rather
when.

Beach fishing improves I


Beach fishing can be a great option for fishing this time of
year.
Many species can be targeted while only being just a few
hundred feet from shore.
Shark, tarpon, kingfish, ish T
cobia, triple tail as well as Fish Tales
other species can be target- Capt. Tyson
ed all in the same day. Wallerstein
Tarpon have begun to
make their migration south-
ward along our beaches, and any day now the big schools of
fish will be traveling within casting distance from shore.
East winds are a beach tarpon angler's best friend, and it
looks like a solid week of easterlies should have the water
cleaned up and hopefully spotting schools of fish by the
weekend. Look for these fish to travel within a hundred
yards from shore.
When spotted, these fish should be approached with cau-


tion in order not to spook the school.
One fish that seems to thrive in the wind is the redfish.
Anchoring on a likely spot and chumming with cut bait
will bring the reds in.
When the water clarity is a bit off and there's a chop on
the water, the reds rely on their acute sense of smell to find
the food, making cut bait unbeatable in this situation. Any
cut bait will do.
Pilchards, threadfins, pinfish, mullet and ladyfish all
work, and if you are catching nothing but small fish, try
using bigger bait, this will often produce a bigger fish.
Our lackluster kingfish season picked up this past week
with schools of smaller fish showing up at a few of the artifi-
cial reefs. Slow trolling live baits will keep you busy with
these schoolie kings. As the water temperature creeps into
the eighties, expect the kingfish run to diminish in the up-
coming weeks.
Until next week get bent.

The Gulf Oil Spill Response.

How to find out more. Where to find help. How to volunteer.


Since the tragic accident on Transocean's Deepwater Horizon
rig first occurred, BP has done and continues to do everything
possible to respond to the situation. BP has taken full
responsibility for dealing with the spill, and is mobilizing
its full resources to fight against it in the Gulf of Mexico.


More than 2,500 of BP's operational and technical personnel
from around the world are working with many federal, state and
local government agencies, local communities and industry
experts. Using hundreds of vessels, they are involved in efforts
to protect the shore of the Gulf coast, to contain the spill offshore,
and to stem the flow of oil from the sub-sea well. Staging posts
to help protect the shoreline are in operation at six critical areas,
supported by command posts in Houma, Louisiana; Mobile,
Alabama; and St. Petersburg, Florida. Thousands of volunteers
are being trained to help with the cleanup.


We are grateful for the support of the many volunteers,
federal, state, and local government officials, and emergency
responders. We are determined to leave nothing undone in
the effort to stop the flow and minimize any potential impact.

Obituaries
Pauline Tropp OBRENTZ

May 4, 2010, after a brief illness. She was a
legend in the interior design industry; a member
of A.S.I.D who practiced her trade for more than
70 years. Listed in Who's Who of American
Women, Pauline attended Yale School of Art.
She began her interior design career in White
Plains, N.Y. and taught at N.Y. Institute of Technology and
Design before establishing an impressive list of residential
clients as well as international commercial credits. She
moved to Clearwater, Fla. in 1968 and owned a successful
interior design practice for 25 years. With no intention of
retiring, she moved to Atlanta, Ga. in the late 1990s to
reside with her son, Bruce, his wife, Barbara, and their
children, Shari and Adam. Pauline's husband, Abe, passed in
1979, as did her son, Hugh, in 1984. She is survived by six
additional grandchildren: Candi, Dana, Hugh, Lisa and
Lauren Obrentz, Terry Gopsil, and great-grandchild, Leah
Obrentz. With her trademark smile and famous red chapeau,
she will be remembered as a respected designer, loving
mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be
greatly missed by those whose lives and homes she graced.

Gardening 35


Beacon, May 13, 2010

Old Florida garden open for tour


The Florida summer sun sends dappled rays through the
leaves of hundred-year-old oak trees at Holloway Haven at
11500 74th Ave. in Seminole.
Gypsy Wind adds their melodies to the sound of breeze-
rustled leaves. Visitors stroll through the nearly two-acres
that comprise the "Old
Florida" acreage across ____
from Seminole City Park.
This scene will play out n --lN _V
on Sunday, May 16, from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ruth Davies
Members of the Rare
Plant Network will set up a
plant market under the oaks; artists will display and sell
their crafts and members of the Seminole Historical Society
will have pictures of the former Meares Lake and the grove
that once existed in the neighborhood. Michele Shaffer will
demonstrate how to attract butterflies and their life cycle.
Family and friends will be available to answer questions
about the 50-year-old homes that an early Chicago develop-
er built. The owners often have guests stay in two of the
four buildings on their property.
Feathered friends, cockatiels, conures, peacocks, chick-
ens and other birds either live on the property or fly in to
visit. Koi live in a large pond filtered with a homemade water


wheel; while a small pond by the patio provides a restful tin-
kling drip of water.
Surprises greet strollers in many areas of the garden; a
whimsical "hut" conjures up a Caribbean island that was
built from recycled fence pickets.
Varied plants can be found on the garden tour. Although
90 percent shady, there are areas where citrus, avocados, a
peach tree and grapes produce their bounty.
Some of the oak trees support staghorn ferns and two va-
rieties of the night blooming cereus. People who grow this
plant have watched the flower buds form and stayed up at
night to see the blooms and enjoy the intense fragrance.
This unattractive stick of a plant can be kept in a pot in the
house during cold nights or planted where it can climb at
will.
Two Australian tree ferns lend a special tropical woodsy
feel. These are hardy up to Gainesville and thrive in the
shade of the old oak trees. Bromeliads and shade are sim-
patico and bloom a few times a year, especially with their
built-in drinking cups.
Forget life's fast pace and come stroll through a piece of
serene old Florida at Holloway Haven. A donation of $1 is
requested.
Ruth Davies can be reached at sunflowerl368@juno.com.
