Indian Shores
detective resigns
INDIAN SHORES Indian
Shores Police Detective Jason
Routzahn has resigned from the
department following the start of
an internal investigation that fo-
cuses on him.
Routzahn, 34, was a nine-year
veteran of the town's police depart-
ment. His association with the de-
partment goes back 14 years when
he was a Boy Scout Explorer.
'There's not a whole lot I can tell
you," said Indian Shores Police
Chief E.D. Williams. "He resigned
May 4 and has left the area. I be-
lieve he's living in Maryland."
Williams said he began the in-
vestigation Feb. 24 and under
state law has 180 days to com-
plete the investigation before it be-
comes public record.
"It's an internal affairs investiga-
tion," Williams said. "(Saying) any-
thing beyond that and I'd be
violating state law."

Hands Across the Sand event set

Residents to unite this weekend in demonstration against oil drilling


Thousands of residents, businesses and organi-
zations across the nation will unite under the
banner of Hands Across the Sand Saturday, June
26 to demonstrate their objection to dangerous
offshore drilling and to call for a renewable energy
policy at the state and federal levels.
Locally, Hands events are scheduled in Belleair
Beach, Clearwater Beach, Honeymoon Island,
Dunedin Causeway, Indian Rocks Beach, Reding-
ton Beach, Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, Gulf-
port and Fort De Soto Park.
For additional details on location, visit
www.handsacrossthesand.com. Those attending
will gather on the beach beginning at 11 a.m.
From noon to 12:15 p.m., attendees will join
hands, as they did up and down the beaches in
February as a show of solidarity against offshore
oil drilling.
The purpose of the event is to show solidarity


The purpose of the event is to show
solidarity for the environment,
economy, and a new energy future
by joining hands around the
country.


for the environment, economy and a new energy
future by joining hands around the country.
According to Dave Rauschkolb, a coastal
restaurant owner from north Florida and the man
behind this grassroots initiative, "Now is the time
for America and our leaders to join hands and
steer our country's energy policy away from our
dependence on fossil fuels and into the light of


clean energy and renewables."
To date, organizers in 46 states have scheduled
503 Hands locations nationwide, along with a
growing number of international venues, creating
what will likely be the largest environmental rally
in the nation's history.
In the Tampa Bay area, all participants should
meet at 11 a.m. at the nearest beach or Hands lo-
cation. Visit www.handsacrossthesand.com.
Where possible, those attending should car-
pool, ride a bike or go to www.psta.net/bussched

Seminole High graduate earns

County spokesman

delivers key message


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Tom lovino admits
he may have the most daunting task
of anyone in Pinellas County.
As spokesman for Pinellas County
Emergency Management, his job is
to get the word out each year about
the importance of hurricane prepa-
ration.
He uses a number of varying tools
to get residents' attention, including
a sports reference June 17 while
speaking at the monthly Seminole
Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
"As (former UCLA basketball
coach) John Wooden used to say,
prepare as if you're going to play,"
said lovino.
Wooden's famous line applies


aptly to hurricane preparation, lovi-
no said. Residents of Pinellas Coun-
ty can't afford to take the annual
hurricane threat lightly and must al-
ways prepare as if this is the year for
the big one.
With a more active hurricane sea-
son predicted this season, residents
should be ready, lovino said. Pinel-
las County, he noted, has not been
directly hit by a hurricane since
1921.
"You have to be prerpared as
though 2010 is the year a storm is
going to hit us," he said. "We have a
La Nifa (weather pattern) this year,
which will produce less wind shear
and produce a pattern more like

SEMINOLE Jessica Stan-
garone admits she doesn't like
country music but there are a few
artists she really enjoys. Tops on
her list is multi-platinum selling
recording artist Carrie Underwood.
So it comes as no surprise that
the 2010 Seminole High School
graduate sang Underwood's "Last
Name" and "I Told You So" to walk
away with the championship June
5 in the Sing Your Way To Las
Vegas karaoke contest at Seminole
Lanes.
The talented 18-year-old outdis-
tanced seven other contestants in
the finals to win over a three-judge
panel. By winning, she earned
round-trip airfare to Las Vegas and
accommodations at the Stratos-
phere Hotel and Casino.
The top winner of the Interna-
tional Bowling Karaoke Finals at
the Hilton Convention Center re-
ceives $5,000 and will perform
prior to the featured act at Club
Xpo. Second place receives $2,000.
Third place receives $1,000.


This contest, which is held an-
nually in bowling centers across
the United States, Canada and
Puerto Rico, attracted about
50,000 contestants this year. A
group of 92 earned trips to Vegas.
The competition gets under way
the morning of Sunday, June 27
when each singer will perform two
songs.
A group of 20 singers will
emerge from the morning session
and eight from an afternoon ses-
sion to reach the finals Monday,
June 28. The winner will perform
Thursday, July 1, at Club Xpo.
Stangarone, who possesses a
wide voice range, loves the feeling
of performing live and said her per-
formance in the local finals was no
different.
"I like to bring everybody in," she
said. "A lot of people pay attention
to the judges but I want to get
everybody involved. It (Seminole
Lanes) was a small place but it was
packed."
The local competition lasted over

serve funds issued by the Government Ac-
counting Standards Board. The new rules
are effective for fiscal year 2011.
Woodruff said GASB Statement 54 issued
February 2009 affects the reserve fund struc-
ture by changing the definition of special rev-
enue funds and others. He said the new
definition of reserves (fund balance) changes
the focus from what is available for appropri-
ation to what the constraints on spending
are.
Key concepts include defining who sets re-
strictions on spending and identifying who
determines the amount assigned to each of
five categories:
1. Non-spendable: inventory
2. Restricted: grant funding which is con-
trolled by outside agencies


3. Unrestricted committed: money of a
specific amount or a percentage set by the
county commissioners, i.e. contingency re-
serves
4. Unrestricted assigned: amounts deter-
mined by administration according with the
commissioners' policy; includes cash flow re-
serves, encumbered contracts reserves and
disaster response reserves
5. Unrestricted unassigned: the fund bal-
ance in excess of reserves; used for non-re-
curring funds for one-time expenses
Woodruff said the new standards for re-
porting also say special revenue funds
should only be used for restricted revenue
sources. GABS recommends that revenues
and expenditures be accounted for in the
same fund.

Castor discusses ways to help hospitality industry


By SUZETTE PORTER
It should be a typical summer in Pinellas
County.
It's sunny and hot. Occasional afternoon
thunderstorms roll in with the sea breeze to
cool things off. The sunsets are amazing.
Out on the beaches, everything is normal.
Seabirds play in the surf and float just off-
shore. Dolphins, manatees, sea turtles and
other marine animals go about their business
as normal. Fishing is good as are the views on
and offshore.
If not for an oil spill located hundreds of
miles away, all would be well.
However, things aren't well. Visitors are
staying away and canceling vacations. Beach
weddings have taken a major hit. Hotels have
too many vacancies. Restaurants have too few
diners. Commercial fishermen are unable to
sell their catch. People are losing their jobs.
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor hosted a teleconfer-
ence on June 16 with a select group of people
to talk about ways to combat negative publici-
ty.
Castor represents Florida's 11th Congres-
sional district, which includes Tampa and St.
Petersburg and parts of Hillsborough, Pinellas
and Manatee counties.


'What can we do to start a grassroots move-
ment to encourage people to head to the
beach," Castor asked.
She suggested using online social outlets
such as Facebook where people could post
current photos and homemade videos.
'We have the most beautiful beaches in the
world and they're not impacted by oil," she
said. 'We need to show people."
D.T. Minich, executive director of the Clear-
water-St. Petersburg Convention Bureau, said
a radio marketing campaign was in the works
to promote an exclusive staycation message in
Tampa Bay. He said new TV spots also were
being produced and the billboards in the Or-
lando area were being updated.
He said the idea was for people who live in
the area to encourage friends, families, col-
leagues in other areas to come to Tampa Bay.
'We're very active on Facebook and Twitter,"
he said.
Minich also said he had heard that the $2.5
million the CVB had asked Gov. Charlie Crist
to allocate to Pinellas County for local market-
ing probably wasn't coming.
Minich had requested the money from the
$25 million BP granted to the state for market-
ing. He said he recently found out that the re-
maining money available from the grant had


been given to Visit Florida.
'We're very disappointed," he said. "Our next
tactic is to redirect our request to Visit Florida.
But I'm not too confident."
Minich said he had been working with the
largest tour operators in the U.K. and Ger-
many who had agreed to do cooperative adver-
tising; however, the CVB does not have the
money it needs for the match.
"All our funds for the summer have been al-
located," he said. 'There will be no new funds
until after Oct. 1."
Pinellas County's new budget year begins
Oct. 1. Pinellas County commissioners, who
are currently working on next year's budget,
discussed the need for money to market the
local area during "these unprecedented times"
at their June 15 meeting but made no deci-
sions.
"What can we do that's not dependent on
millions of dollars to give us a shot in the
arm," Castor asked.
Robin Grabowski, president and CEO of
Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce in
St. Pete Beach, said her chamber had been
using the Internet to get the word out to out-
of-state visitors that there is no oil on Pinellas
County beaches.
She agreed with Castor and the others that


the Internet should play an important role in
any marketing campaign.
Minich said people needed to reach out and
get the local chambers of commerce rallied
and spread the word among businesses that
the tourist industry is hurting.
"We need people eating at our local restau-
rants, staying in our hotels and shopping on
the beach," he said.
He said the CVB's consultant advised that
marketing campaigns not include the word oil,
but instead concentrate on blue, beautiful, etc.
He also said positive local media stories
were needed that talked about all the great ac-
tivities going on. He said Fourth of July was
coming and with it a number of special events
for locals and tourists alike.
Patty Hubbard, co-owner of Hubbard Mari-
na in Madeira Beach, said her family has had
ties to the area since the 1930s and had sur-
vived bad times in the past.
She also said during hard economic times,
the first thing businesses do is cut back on
marketing. She suggested that merchant asso-
ciations join together to offer special packages
that included a discount on hotel stays com-
bined with dining and shopping.
She said it was important that people shop
locally and eat locally.

Cow chip bingo


Photos by BRANDEN BELL
More than 1,800 tickets at $5 each were sold for the Seminole High School Marching Band's
Cow Chip Bingo fundraiser June 19 at Seminole Vocational Education Center. Betsy the cow
took nearly the full allotted time of two hours to do her business. When she did, she hit a
square purchased Sherry O'Neil. Support for Betsy started out strong with about 80 people
standing alongside the fence waiting for her to "perform." But support dwindled fast as the
hot temperatures forced viewers to find cooler conditions. Even Betsy seemed to think it was
too hot as she stood underneath the only shade on her field, a large metal overhang, for
nearly the entire time. Kevin Daw, a band parent, entertained the crowd along the fence with
cow trivia and entertained kids with prizes and cow themed jokes. Above, are Betsy the cow,
along with event organizers Dennis Wheeler, Daw and Patti Dillow. Below, Faith Zima tries a
bowling game while Kirstin Schmitt watches off to the side.

County votes to maintain


amount of reserve fund


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER The more the better was
the consensus of Pinellas County commis-
sioners during a June 15 work session dis-
cussion on general fund reserves.
John Woodruff, director of the Office of
Budget and Management, said the commis-
sioners' current reserves policy calls for "at a
minimum, no less than 5 percent to 15 per-
cent of operating revenues, or no less than
one to two months of operating expenditures."
For the past several years, the commission-
ers have advocated a reserve target of 15 per-
cent of total resources.
Woodruff said the fiscal year 2010 reserve
of $94.1 million meets the 15 percent target.
The money is divided up with $20 million
going to Disaster Reserve, $21 million to Cash
Flow Reserve, $22.5 million to Encumbrance
Reserve and $30.6 million in Contingency Re-
serve.
The commissioners had asked Woodruffs
office to find a different way to determine the
general fund reserve level and to focus on the
gross dollar amount necessary for disaster re-
sponse.
In his report, Woodruff showed a chart of
expenditures totaling $9.4 million for emer-
gency response and recovery when the rem-
nants of hurricanes Charley, Frances and
Jeanne passed through the county in 2004.
Expected expenses listed for disaster re-
sponse and recovery included salaries for
public safety and other emergency response
personnel; cost of the Emergency Operation
Center; cost of shelter operations; fuel for ve-
hicles and generators; debris removal and
emergency infrastructure equipment and re-
pairs.
Woodruff said factors to be considered be-
sides direct costs included an expected loss of
10 percent of taxable value, which would re-
sult in a revenue loss of $30 million in proper-
ty taxes the year after a disaster. Woodruff
also pointed out that some of the county's
properties with the highest tax value were lo-
cated in areas most vulnerable to storms.
Sales and other taxes would likely decrease
due to negative impacts on tourism, and al-
though rebuilding would generate additional
revenues, Woodruff said it would take time to
offset losses.
He concluded by saying that there is no
ideal method for determining how much
money would be needed to deal with a disas-
ter, especially for a county located in a high
hazard area.
He also told the commissioners that due to
the economy, reserves would be difficult to re-
store, if necessary, in the near future.
Woodruff presented a proposed new Gener-
al Fund Reserve Policy that calls for a budget
reserve of at least 15 percent of general fund
resources. He also proposed that the same
dollar amount currently budgeted for re-
serves, $94 million, be retained for 2011.


"Do not adjust the reserve amount down-
ward as the overall budget decreases," he
said.
County Administrator Bob LaSala con-
curred.
LaSala said the more money available for
the disaster reserve the better. He said that
due to layoffs of county staff and reductions
in equipment over the past few years, it was
likely more contractors would have to be hired
after an emergency, increasing costs.
The question on the table was whether to
continue with the policy of 15 percent, which
would total about $87 million with the pro-
jected budget amount for 2011, or to retain
the $94 million, which would amount to
about 16 percent.
Commissioner Calvin Harris said he had a
problem with taxing people so the reserve
could grow.
"Small businesses and families have the
same problems we do," he said. "If we keep
growing the number on a smaller budget, I
have a problem with that."
Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she un-
derstood Harris' concern, but was OK with the
reserve amount since each fund is "restricted
to its own specific purpose."
Woodruff said the current reserve amount
had been built over the years using non-reoc-
curring revenue sources.
"We put it in reserves instead of spending it;
that's how we've built reserves up over the
years," he said.
Commissioner Neil Brickfield asked why
staff wanted to keep the number the same in-
stead of sticking to the 15 percent.
Commissioner Susan Latvala took the
board back to the early 2000s when the coun-
ty had less than 7 percent in its reserves.
'The state said we had to have voting ma-
chines, so we spent the reserves," she said.
"Hurricane season came along and we had no
money."
She said it was a worrisome time for the
commissioners and Emergency Management
staff.
"After the hurricanes passed, the board de-
cided to build up the reserves and picked 15
percent and that's how we got here," she said.
She said the additional revenue that came
from the increase of property values had al-
lowed the commission to build the reserve
funds up to where they are today.
"I'm comfortable with that number ($94
million)," she said. 'The more we can put in
there would make me more comfortable. We'll
never be able to build it up again."
County Administrator Bob LaSala said the
more money the county had in its reserves
during a disaster the easier it would be to bor-
row money, if needed.
Commissioner Ken Welch said he support-
ed leaving the $94 million in reserves.
"When a disaster happens, people expect
the government to respond," Welch said. "I
say let it stay at 16 percent."

Stangarone's trip to Vegas
falls on the heels of an Ameri-

year. After winning a prelimi-

try," she said.
Stangarone has been
singing publicly for about
nine years.
Like many, she started
singing in the shower and
went from there to other
venues.
"When she was younger,
she would always sing at my
in-laws' house," said her
mother, Terry Stangarone.
"Back then she had a very
high-pitched voice and we
used to joke that she might
break out the windows.
"Then, after 9/11, when
everyone was singing the Na-
tional Anthem, she was
singing it one time and I dis-
covered, 'wow, she can really
belt it.'"
She sang the National An-
them at a Dunedin Blue Jays
baseball game and began
voice lessons shortly after
that.
"I started pushing her and
kept pushing her," said
Terry. "Even for this contest,
I had to push her. She didn't
want to do it because she
doesn't like the bar scene."
Jessica admits to pre-per-


formance jitters but once on
stage her personna changes
instantly.
"I sit there, get scared and
get really cold," she said.
"But I just love performing in
front of people. I'm perform-
ing for them and performing
for myself, telling a story."
And country music is a
perfect fit.
"I enjoy singing (country
music) because my voice is
perfect for it," she said. "I
have good range."
More recently, she has per-
formed as a member of the
Seminole High School chorus
and posted a third-place fin-
ish in the 2008 Seminole
Sings competition.
This fall she will begin her
freshman year at Florida Gulf
Coast University in Fort
Myers. After that she hopes
to make performing her ca-
reer.
"Becoming a professional
singer would be great," she
said. "But I want to do some-
thing along the lines of
Broadway. They bring the
audience in and that's what I
want to do."

2008 when Ike hit."
Hurricane Ike struck in September 2008
and virtually leveled Galveston, Texas. Alto-
gether, Ike was attributed for $37.6 billion in
total damage across the Caribbean and Gulf of
Mexico, making it the third costliest hurricane
on record behind Andrew (1992) and Katrina
(2005).
'The time to prepare is now," said lovino. "If
you wait until the last minute, you're not going
to like your options."
lovino said the importance of having a plan
in place is huge.
"When a hurricane comes the reality is you
have to be prepared to save yourself and your
family," said lovino. "Why? Because we (county
officials) are going to be busy getting fire
trucks and other emergency vehicles back on
the streets."
lovino also noted that employers should
have a plan in place.
"Develop a culture of preparedness among
your employees," he said. "Know the impor-
tance of being ready and that you can set the
standard. Once you get employees prepared,
talk to your suppliers."
lovino advised business owners to go to their
churches and civic groups, and "talk to them
about the importance of hurricane prepared-
ness. Also communicate the importance to
your neighbors."
Iovino said it is important for all residents to

Police beat


Man arrested
on outstanding warrant
TREASURE ISLAND A 46-year-old St. Pe-
tersburg man was arrested June 20 at the Bil-
mar Beach Resort on an outstanding warrant
for grand theft.
Joseph Miller was taken into custody about
7:42 a.m. without incident in his room at the
hotel. He was wanted on a Pinellas County
warrant.
Miller was transported to Pinellas County
Jail where bond was set at $100,000.

Woman thwarts tent thieves
TREASURE ISLAND The owner of an ex-
pandable beach tent caught thieves in the
process of attempting to heist it late June 18
in the 11300 block of the beach.
The 46-year-old Palm Harbor woman and
her family observed three white males disman-


tling the tent and transporting it toward the
boardwalk about 11 p.m.
The woman advised the three persons she
was the owner of the tent. At that point they
dropped the tent and left the area in a tan
pickup truck.
Police advised the woman it is not a good
idea to leave personal property overnight on
the beach.

Police seek information
concerning murder
PINELLAS PARK A Pinellas Park man was
shot on June 17 and then staggered to a busy
shopping mall pedestrian area where he fell
mortally wounded.
Dead is David W. Beasley, 23, of 4631 76th
Ave. who has a criminal record dating back to
2005. His last arrest was on May 12 when he
was booked into the Pinellas County Jail for


domestic battery.
He was released from the lock-up on his
own recognizance. Details of that arrest were
not immediately available.
Sgt. Brian Unmisig said police responded to
Shoppes at Park Place Mall on U.S. 19 at
about 6:20 p.m. There they discovered Beasley
laying in a parking lot near Marshall's depart-
ment store with what appeared to be a single
gunshot wound.
Police said Beasley was transported to
Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg
where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Detectives said it was first unclear if Beasley
was wounded on mall property or elsewhere.
No stores were evacuated.
Police said officers later discovered a vehicle
at the rear of the mall where the shooting may
have taken place. It is believed that Beasley
staggered from the mall's rear area to the
parking lot to summon help.


Detectives have not come up with a motive
for the murder or a description of the shooter
or shooters. Persons with information are
asked to call police at 541-0758 or Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.

Lone gunman holds up market
PINELLAS PARK A lone gunman robbed a
food market on June 18 and escaped with
about $400.
Pinellas Park police said the gunman walked
into the Park Food Mart at 6328 Park Blvd.,
selected a beer and then went to the cashier to
pay for it.
Police said when the clerk opened the cash
register the suspect produced a black hand-
gun and demanded money.
The suspect then ran from the store and
dropped the pistol on the ground. It was later
determined that the weapon was a pellet gun.

Wrong approach


Beacon, June 24, 2010


Under a proposed ordinance, Madeira
Beach representatives on the Gulf Beach Li-
brary Board would have become puppets for
city commissioners.
The ordinance went too far in imposing
rules on library board member's conduct,
which became an issue recently when a
board member voted against a proposal to
allow Madeira Beach to provide financial
services to the library.
Merely because board members take ac-
tion or have opinions that a commissioner
disagrees with is not sufficient grounds to
oust them from the board, muzzle them or
control their thought process.
The ordinance as written also would have
a chilling effect on the city's ability to recruit
residents qualified to sit on the board and,
possibly, other boards. Who wants to sit on
any board knowing that they can be subject
to intimidation from the people who ap-
pointed them?
Vice Mayor Terry Lister said that the ordi-
nance "provides a thousand outs to get rid
of people we don't like." It also smacks of
micromanagement, as former Commission-


Eventually, houses kick you
out.
My husband, Nick, said this
recently as I took one last,
good look around my mother's
empty house in Minnesota.
The house with the red door.
I felt as though I were in the
series finale of some TV show.
A ghostly image of 10-year-old
me would walk through the
rooms as the scene would fade
to grainy footage of April 1994
as I entered the house for the
first time with my mom and
then-6-year-old brother. The
last time it had been empty
like this.
In my mental TV show,
sappy music would start to
play as I gaze around the
room. The walls and floors
would dissolve to what they
looked like 16 years ago. Old,
shaggy, greenish-gray carpet
would sprout up out of the
hardwood floors like moldy
grass. The cheery yellow walls
fade into the blues that made
my mom cry because the
house wasn't "hers" yet. The
old, green hanging light fixture
would grow out of the ceiling.
Even the sunny sky would
turn back into the gray, wet
day that matched my mood
that day I had left my New
Hampshire world behind for
the new Minnesota life my
mom had chosen for us.
And then would come the
predictable montage of clips
from past "shows."
Building forts from blankets
and chairs and couch cush-
ions with my brother. Running


er Martha Boos, who served 12 years as a li-
brary board representative, pointed out.
The ordinance would have required one of
the two library board trustees to bring li-
brary contracts and other documents relat-
ing to financial matters to the commission
for review and comment within 30 days
after voting on the issue. Also, there was a
provision that the library budget must be
brought to the commission prior to a trustee
vote on the issue.
That's bureaucracy run amuck. If com-
missioners have a problem with board
members, they can invite them to their
meetings to discuss issues or areas of dis-
agreement.
In the past couple of years, the Gulf
Beaches Public Library has been beset by
budget woes and other problems. But the
beach municipalities that fund its opera-
tions have done a commendable job to work
together to get it back on track.
Residents who are appointed to the li-
brary board, or any board for that matter,
should be viewed as part of the solution, not
part of the problem.


The Inkwell
Alexandra Cald-
L well


home from school on my first
day of middle school to declare
that Mrs. Holmes is the
coolest teacher ever and that
fifth-grade is going to be an
awesome year. Sitting at the
piano practicing for voice
lessons, choir performances,
numbers for musicals. Stand-
ing awkwardly by the fireplace
before my first middle school
dance and then again a few
years later for proms and win-
ter formals. Awakened by
clanging pots and pans and
screaming altos declaring that
I had made Choralaires the
elite, top chamber choir that
was absolutely droolworthy for
any of us choir nerds. Posing
throughout the yard with my
parents in my cap and gown.
Packing for college. Walking
down the stairs six years later
in my wedding dress.
And now I am saying good-
bye.
The sappy music fades as
the camera focus and it's pre-
sent day again.
This house with the red
door hasn't been home in
eight years, but 16 years is the
longest that either of my par-
ents have stayed in a house
since I've been alive.
I thought it would be sad to
say goodbye. So many memo-
ries. So much growth. Pencil


marks on the kitchen doorway
mark my brother's and my
heights through the years,
and notations of exuberance
when he finally grew taller
than his big sister's 5 foot 10
inches.
But sometimes, after a
while, you outgrow your sur-
roundings. I enjoyed my years
there, but I had moved on
years ago. My brother just
graduated from college a few
weeks ago and hasn't lived
there since high school. My
mom doesn't need the big
space anymore, nor can she
afford its rising expenses. The
neighbors have soured and
mom didn't even like sitting
outside on her porch anymore
because she didn't want to
deal with their bad attitudes.
Yes, it was time to leave.
Nick and I helped mom set
up her little rental cottage up
the shore of Lake Superior as
she awaited the closing on her
house. The cottage is tiny, but
it's all that mom and her
miniature dachshund need. A
tree filled with acrobatic squir-
rels and their nests hangs low
in front of her breakfast nook
window. A forest nestles up
against her back yard that
brings deer and bunny friends
to visit. A quick walk down the
driveway leads to a breathtak-
ing view of massive Lake Su-
perior and all of its beauty.
This will be a better place
for her now.
The house with the red door
has finally kicked the last one
of us out.

Citizen's Academy
very impressive
Editor:
As a recent graduate of the 2010 Pinellas
County Sheriffs Citizens Academy, I would
like to compliment the highly educated, pro-
fessional and dedicated staff of the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office for one of the most in-
teresting, informative, and worthwhile learning
experiences offered by a government agency.
Approximately 20 elected officials and com-
munity leaders attended Wednesday evening
classes for 12 weeks totaling more than 30
hours of training. The curriculum provided a
comprehensive overview of the organization,
operations, and functions of the office of Sher-
iff Jim Coats.
The PCSO provides more than patrol opera-
tions that is obvious daily to local residents.
The responsibilities of the PCSO are far too
numerous to list in this short letter. In brief
they provide property crime investigations, in-
cluding burglary, arson, auto theft, racketeer-
ing, etc.; as well as investigations involving
crimes against persons, including robbery,
homicide, and sexual predator offenders. Nar-


cotics interdiction and human trafficking; and
court security are specialties within the
agency. Special Operations oversees disaster
preparedness, and canine, underwater search
and recovery, marine, flight and SWAT team
functions.
I know community policing is of special in-
terest to the neighborhoods of the citizens of
the city of Seminole. To complete the Citizen's
Academy training I had the privilege of riding
during afternoon hours with Sheriff Deputy
Don Klase as he responded to calls for service,
conducted patrol activities, and investigated
various issues related to the safety and securi-
ty of the citizens of Seminole.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office meets
up to their motto of "Leading the Way for a
Safer Pinellas."
Thank you for the opportunity to learn
about the PCSO.
Thank you to all the men and women who
put their lives in harm's way to protect the citi-
zens and quality of life in Pinellas County.
Leslie Waters
Vice Mayor
Seminole


Notes on soccer


It's unclear where, when
and how the sport of soccer
started.
One theory is that in the
Middle Ages when someone
was beheaded, the locals cele-
brated by kicking the head
around the town square. A
week or so ago on the David
Letterman show, actress
Helen Mirren said that an-
cient warriors would lop off
the heads of their defeated
opponents and boot them
about. This may have been
the origin of the expression
"getting your kicks."
Throughout soccer's histo-
ry, all sorts of things have
been used as kicking objects -
stones, tin cans, kettles, or-
anges, coconuts, small dogs,
dried fruitcakes. Some cul-
tures sewed old clothing into
aball.
Eventually leather was
used as a covering. The in-
vention of rubber gave a big
boost (no pun intended) to the
soccer ball.
Every four years the World
Cup matches occur. Most of
the world pays attention, but
not so much in the USA. The
accepted reason for this is
that Americans don't like
sports in which there is little
scoring. This is baloney, of
course. American baseball
fans go crazy with excitement
every time someone pitches a
no-hitter, thus allowing the
losing team no runs at all.
Same way with tennis, in
which the individual scores
seldom exceed six points.
I believe America's coolness
toward soccer is caused by
our general inability to fathom
exactly what is going on down
there on the field. To the un-
trained eye it's just a bunch of
players booting the bejabers
out of the ball in all direc-
tions, with little rhyme or rea-
son. Possession or control of
the ball changes every few
seconds. When a goal is final-


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


ly scored, it seems to be al-
most by accident, rather than
as a result of strategic intent.
I'm sure that's not really the
case, but that's what it looks
like.
I seldom watch a soccer
match in its entirety, but I
like what I see even for a few
minutes. The players are
swift, graceful, gutsy, in su-
perb physical condition, de-
ceptive, unpredictable. Some
are excellent actors, pretend-
ing to be mortally wounded as
they writhe on the grass after
being tripped, hoping the ref-
eree will lessen their agony by
banishing the offending oppo-
nent from the stadium or the
nation itself.
The most delightful aspect
of soccer on television is the
relative absence of commer-
cials. The unwritten rule of
American football, for exam-
ple, is that actual game play
may not interfere with com-
mercials for more than a few
minutes at a time. I recall
once watching an NFL game
for six straight minutes with
no commercial interruptions.
That was in the '70s, and it
has not happened since.
But a soccer game has vir-
tually continuous action. Two
45-minute periods are sepa-
rated by a 15-minute break.
Except for rare instances, the
clock keeps ticking. And the
fans keep cheering. A World
Cup game (and many other
professional soccer games)
are non-stop noisefests.
Sometimes followed by riots.
Soccer rivalries between cities
in England and other parts of
Europe have ended in mur-
der, mayhem, divorce and
banishment from Facebook

Thirty-two nations are com-
peting for the 2010 World
Cup. One of the benefits of
holding the quadrennial
matches is to broaden our
knowledge of the world. If
someone put a gun to your
head and commanded you to
tell the difference between
Slovenia and Slovakia, could
you do it? Neither could I.
Slovenia, in southeastern Eu-
rope, is part of the former Yu-
goslavia; its history is too
complex for ordinary mortals
to comprehend. Slovakia is
farther to the north. Both na-
tions are competing this year.
If they should go head-to-
head, the outcome could trig-
ger World War III. Stay tuned.
Another obscure competing
nation is Cameroon. A 2008
survey discovered that 80
percent of the world's people
think Cameroon is a kind of
almond-flavored cookie. Not
so. It is a west-central African
nation. Like many other parts
of Africa it was plundered by
the French, Germans and
British. The name Cameroon
comes from the Portuguese
word for shrimp. And don't
you forget it!
Many people call soccer the
perfect sport. Its only require-
ments are an object (prefer-
ably round) to kick and
maybe a hundred square feet
to kick it in. Players need not
be huge; in fact, small players
are often more adept than big
ones. Women can play soccer
just as well as men. The game
is largely non-contact. Rules
of the game are few and easi-
ly understood. Trash talking
is minimal, because the play-
ers are too busy chasing the
dadblamed ball. Wouldn't it
be nice if international dis-
putes could be settled on the
soccer field, instead of the
battlefield?

Redington Beach

plans special patrols

on Gulf Boulevard

By BOB McCLURE

REDINGTON BEACH Town commissioners voted
unanimously June 15 to spend $1,480 for special
deputies to patrol Gulf Boulevard on weekends in July.
Commissioners accepted a proposal by Commissioner
Tom Dorgan and were swayed by an incident about six
weeks ago when a motorist stopped at a crosswalk, let his
foot slip off the break pedal and tapped a carriage carry-
ing a small baby. No injuries occurred but the incident
sent a red flag through the community.
The town will pay a Pinellas County Sheriffs deputy
$37 per hour for three hours of patrolling crosswalk areas
on Gulf Boulevard, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3
p.m., beginning Saturday, July 3.
The lone exception to the schedule will be Sunday, July
4 when the deputy will patrol from 6 to 10 p.m.
The schedule coincides with a similar plan by North
Redington Beach, which has contracted use of special
deputies through the end of July, Friday through Sunday,
from 4 to 8 p.m.
"I propose that we contract for coverage weekends dur-
ing the month of July, renewable monthly based on needs
and performance," Dorgan said in a letter to his fellow
commissioners. "The deputy's responsibility would be to
patrol Gulf Boulevard, with emphasis on crosswalks and
traffic violators."
Dorgan said the plan was designed "to enhance the
safety of our residents when traveling to and from the
beach across Gulf Boulevard."
Dorgan said the town would receive $20 from each
ticket written which would help to offset the town's ex-
pense.
"Of course, this is not intended as a revenue source,"
he said. "It's being proposed in the interest of protecting
our residents."
"This is not a lot of money but I feel like this is a knee-
jerk reaction," said Commissioner Mark Deighton. "A cou-
ple of years ago we cut $28,000 out of the budget for an
auxiliary policeman after we decided speeding was not an
issue (on Gulf Boulevard). The speed limit is being ob-
served. This is notjustified."
Commissioner Fred Steiermann agreed with Dorgan's
proposal.
"Government's primary responsibility is to protect its
residents," Steiermann said. "The crosswalks are out
there and cause problems. The public doesn't understand
them and the motorists don't understand them.
"It's a dangerous situation out there. Constantly people
are slamming on their brakes and sooner or later some-
body's going to get hurt," he added. "I don't want to sit
back and say we missed the boat."
The Redington Beach schedule for special deputy pa-
trols are as follows:
Saturday, July 3, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday, July 4, 6 to 10 p.m.
Monday, July 5, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
July 10-11, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
July 17-18, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
July 24-25, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
July 31, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A decision on renewing the service into August will be
discussed in July.

Treasure Island businesses favor extra hour of drinking


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND A survey by the
Treasure Island Chamber of Commerce indi-
cates a slight majority of its membership fa-
vors a county ordinance to extend the hours
businesses can sell alcoholic beverages from
2 to 3 a.m.
The survey, conducted by Executive Direc-
tor Dominique Reiter, received about a 20
percent response by chamber members, or
about 40 people. The count was 22 for ex-
tending the hours and 18 against it.
Reiter conducted the survey at the request
of city leaders who were asked for input from
Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel.
Seel said the county is considering the pro-
posal following the city of St. Petersburg's re-


cent decision to keep bars open an extra hour
each night.
'The majority of the bar owners were more
interested in having bars open at 10 a.m.,"
Reiter said at a June 15 city workshop.
"Many said they would like to compete (with
other establishments in other cities) for
champagne brunch."
Commissioners Gail Caldwell and Alan
Bildz said they were not in favor of changing
the hours.
"I'm not in favor of it," said Bildz. "A Sun-
day morning change would be more palat-
able."
Commissioner Phil Collins said he didn't
think it would make much difference one way
or the other. Commissioner Carol Coward
agreed.


"I don't have any objections," Coward said.
"I don't think it's going to affect us much."
Collins suggested getting input from Trea-
sure Island Police Chief Tim Casey.
"My decision will be based on what the
chief thinks," said Collins.
"I would agree," said Caldwell.
Commissioners decided to conduct a sec-
ond workshop on the topic on July 6 follow-
ing Casey's opinion.
In other action:
City Manager Reid Silverboard said meet-
ings on the 2010-11 budget would be held the
week of July 19 at City Hall. The city must set
its millage rate no later than the Aug. 3 meet-
ing, he said.
Silverboard said he authorized $10,000 in
emergency repairs to the city's tractor, used


to rake the beaches, after it recently sus-
tained a cracked engine block. He also autho-
rized rental of a another tractor to be used in
the interim.
Silverboard noted that the elimination of
a dual vote on countywide ordinances is
among the proposals by the Pinellas County
Charter Review committee. "Cities have ex-
pressed concern about that portion going for-
ward," he said. For example, if the county
was to pass an ordinance increasing the li-
brary fee that cities pay, it would be passed
uniformly without input from cities and
towns. City Attorney Maura Keifer noted that
the county's municipalities recently sued the
county over the same issue and won. 'This is
the second attempt that I know of to get
around the litigation," Kiefer said.


North Redington Beach prepares for July 4th celebration


By JEANNIE CARLSON

NORTH REDINGTON BEACH Mayor Bill Queen an-
nounced that Tampa Bay has "100 percent oil free beach-
es" at the June 10 town hall meeting.
Queen pointed out that North Redington Beach's official
town Web site is sporting that slogan along with a photo of
the immaculate beach sand and beautiful surf of the Gulf
of Mexico.
This photo on the town's home page also has a link to
view oil spill information. Informational updates from
Pinellas County on the oil spill and volunteering opportu-
nities are listed there.
The Seminole High School Band will be playing at the
town's July 4th parade and picnic this year. There will be
face painting, snow cones, hot dogs, soft drinks and more.
Patriotic bicycle decorating for the parade will culminate
in a contest for the best decorated child's bike.


IRAY ARFA CARFP


Tickets are still available for the Rays Day game on
June 27. Queen quipped, "If we don't sell some more tick-
ets, I may not get to throw out the first ball."
Crime is a rarity in North Redington Beach. Queen
shared the story of a burglary on North Bath Club where a
neighbor was instrumental in thwarting the crime.
The resident knew his next door neighbor was away and
that a strange car was parked on the street. The neighbor
called the police when he saw two men inside his vaca-
tioning neighbor's house. The men took off when they saw
the neighbor watching them.
The neighbor called the police again and the perpetra-
tors were apprehended nearby on Bay Pines Boulevard.
These suspects are possibly linked to other burglaries in
Redington Beach and Madeira Beach.
Queen reported that, in the case of North Bath Club,
"All the stolen property was recovered." Queen commend-
ed the thoughtful actions of the neighbor. "We have a lot of

good people (in the town) looking out for one another."
The three ordinances that passed on first reading last
month were approved on their second and final reading at
this month's meeting.
Boat lifts are now allowed to extend 54 feet and the ne-
cessity for a redundant notice of elections has been elimi-
nated.
The third ordinance forbids solicitors from knocking on
residents' doors. One resident at the meeting commented
that landscaping people came to her door at dinner time
twice in the prior week.
"They can't do that anymore," said Queen.
Queen told residents to call the sheriffs office for assis-
tance regarding violators of this new ordinance.
Commissioner Gary Curtis asked if the town was going
to post signs in the town as a warning to potential solici-
tors. Town Attorney Ed Peck recommended "No Soliciting"
signs be posted on streets entering the town.

The Beaches 9


Supreme Court upholds beach renourishment plan


In a much anticipated finding, the U.S.
Supreme Court in a unanimous decision con-
cluded the Florida Supreme Court did not take
private property without just compensation in
violation of the U.S. Constitution in its ruling
governing the restoration of beaches.
The decision is a major victory for munici-
palities along the state beaches who depend
on beach renourishment for their continued
livelihood.
"We are extremely pleased with the order
from the United States Supreme Court which
upholds Florida's position regarding the im-
portance of beach restoration," said Michael
W. Sole, secretary of the Florida Department of


Environmental Protection.
Florida's Beaches and Shore Preservation
Act implements the state's constitutional duty
to protect Florida's beaches, and achieves a
reasonable balance between public and private
interests in the shore.
'This unanimous decision affirms the Flori-
da Supreme Court's conclusion that Florida
Department of Environmental Protection im-
plementation of the erosion control program
and beach nourishment provides a significant
level of storm protection benefits for upland
properties and infrastructure, restores the
recreational beach, and achieves a reasonable
balance of public and private interest in the


shore," Sole said. "Beaches have multiple ben-
efits including protection from storm surges,
providing habitat for plants and animals, en-
hancing property values, providing recreation-
al space and providing employment, wages,
and income to the state. For every dollar in-
vested in beach restoration, the state receives
a $6 to $8 economic return in state taxes from
the more than 27 million visitors that visit the
state's beaches annually."
The case centered on an appeal of a Florida
Supreme Court decision by a Walton County
group formed in 2004 to challenge a local
beach restoration plan. Owners objected that
the renourished beach seaward of a state-set


erosion control line and behind their homes
would become public land, as is mandated by
state law.
American Shores and Beach Preservation
Association president Harry Simmons stated,
"While the case before the court was technical-
ly a Florida matter, the results of the case have
implications for coastal communities nation-
wide. ASBPA is dedicated to the efforts of our
members in Florida and elsewhere who are
working hard to maintain, protect and en-
hance the coasts of America. We believe the
state of Florida was correct in its approach to
restoring beaches, and are very happy that the
high court agrees."


Redington Shores commissioners pass tough fertilizer ordinance


By WAYNE AYERS

REDINGTON SHORES Strict new rules regarding the use of
fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorous and lawn
maintenance practices were enacted by the Town Commission
at its June 11 meeting.
The regulations take effect immediately.
The law's intent is to minimize the environmental effects as-
sociated with the use of these fertilizers on the town's stormwa-
ter and drainage conveyances, canals, estuaries, freshwater
wetlands and Tampa Bay.
Though the ordinance deals mostly with fertilizer restrictions,
Commissioner Lee Holmes pointed out a section on the man-


agement of grass clippings. Residents are required to keep the
clippings in their yards, and out of "stormwater drains, ditches,
conveyances, surface waters, roadways or gutters."
Holmes said citizens routinely violate this by placing their
grass on the curb or by the side of the road.
This practice fouls up operation of the town's new clean
water drainage system, Vice Mayor John Branch said. "All the
grass goes down into a defender, and we have to pay people to
clean it out," he said.
Branch said residents need to be aware of and obey the grass
clipping rules.
'This is an environmental thing. It's very important," he said.
"It's something we need to take care of immediately."


Oil spill contingency plans
A massive volunteer effort is planned to pick up dirt and de-
bris from the beach if the Gulf oil spill threatens the area, police
Major Terry Hughes told the commission. Hughes is site cap-
tain for the event, part of the county's beach cleanup group.
Hughes said 150 volunteers will be directed to three staging
areas for the debris cleanup effort, which will take place if the
spill is expected to arrive within 48 hours. Citizens will be told
to handle only debris, and not to touch any oil, he said.
Aerial photos of the Redington Shores-Indian Shores shore-
line were taken recently to show the pristine condition of the
beaches, Commissioner Casey Wojcik said.

the night skies over Pinellas
County marking Indepen-
dence Day, festivities will be
underway across the county.
The Fourth of July com-

the Declaration of Indepen-
dence on July 4, 1776, the

colonies effectively declared
independence from Great
Britain. To celebrate the
event, displays of fireworks,
parades, concerts and other
events are planned. Following
is a summary of some of the

clude fire department person-

Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. The

out party in Nashville for Gospel Music Week
bordered on messianic. This was the group
with a fresh new sound that was going to revi-
talize the business.
From their humble beginnings, Among the
Thirsty has captivated crowds of all ages with
their cross-generational, cross genre music
and promises to fulfill the growing demand.

Christ through the gifts they have been

Blending the diversity of
alternative rock and extreme
sports, the Vans Warped
Tour Festival is North Ameri-
ca's longest-running touring
festival. Organizers say this
year's show will be the most
memorable jaunt yet for the
annual punk rock extrava-
ganza.
Now in its 16th year, the
43-date tour will host a dis-
tinct and diverse lineup of
the hottest artists on the
scene, as well as a full con-
course of lifestyle attractions
and vendors.
The festival has a history of
introducing up-and-coming
indie talent as well as show-
casing established artists
since 1995. It has cemented
its place in history by playing
a major role in bringing punk
rock, skate and action-sports
culture from the under-
ground to the forefront of
American youth culture. It
also creates awareness of en-
vironmental concerns as well
as charitable causes.
The traveling punk-rock
summer camp features a di-
verse array of artists as well
as a variety of lifestyle attrac-
tions for a traditionally low-
ticket price.

Opening this week

Cruise, Diaz team up for 'Knight and Day'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Knight and Day'
Genre: Action, romance and thriller
Cast: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Maggie
Grace, Marc Blucas and Paul Dano
Director: James Mangold
Rated: PG-13
In the action-comedy "Knight and Day,"
Tom Cruise is a covert agent and Cameron
Diaz is a woman caught between him and
those he claims set him up.
As their globetrotting adventure erupts into
a maze of double-crosses, close escapes, false
identities, and head-spinning romantic snafus,
they come to realize that all they can count on
is each other.

'Grown Ups'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris
Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Salma
Hayek and Steve Buscemi
Director: Dennis Dugan
Rated: PG-13
"Grown Ups," starring Adam Sandler, Kevin
James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob
Schneider, is a hilarious comedy about five
men who were best friends when they were
young kids and now are getting together for
the Fourth of July weekend to meet each oth-
ers' families for the first time.


Picking up where they left off, they discover
why growing older doesn't mean growing up.

The following will open in limited release. It
may be several weeks before these films ap-
pear in local movie theaters.

'Restrepo'
Genre: Documentary
Director: Tim Hetherington and Sebastian
Junger
Rated: R
"Restrepo" is a feature-length documentary
that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of
U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.
The movie focuses on a remote 15-man out-
post, "Restrepo," named after a platoon medic
who was killed in action. It was considered one
of the most dangerous postings in the U.S.
military. This is an entirely experiential film:
The cameras never leave the valley; there are
no interviews with generals or diplomats. The
only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have
just been through a 94-minute deployment.
This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up
to the viewer.

'Wild Grass'
Genre: Foreign, drama and thriller
Cast: Sabine Azema, Andre Dussollier, Em-
manuelle Devos, Anne Consigny and Mathieu
Amalric
Director: Alain Resnais
Rated: PG
A wallet lost and found opens the door -
slightly to Georges and Marguerite's roman-

June (Cameron Diaz) tries to deliver a knockout punch to the mysterious Roy Miller (Tom Cruise)
in "Knight and Day."


tic adventure.
After examining the ID of its owner, it is not
a simple matter for Georges to turn in to the
police the red wallet he has found. Nor can
Marguerite retrieve her wallet without being
piqued with curiosity about the person who
found it. As Georges and Marguerite navigate
the social protocols of giving and acknowledg-
ing thanks, turbulence enters their everyday


lives. "Wild Grass" is based on the novel "L'in-
cident" by French novelist Christian Gailly.

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


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


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


From left to right: John McNeal, Scott with daughter Hazel, Ron, Christy
(McNeal,s daughter with dog Cloe), Jim Bartlett and Laura McNeal
will display the items you bring in a tray, test or research the items in
front of you via computer and then evaluate them and explain what
you have."
Most importantly, McNeal Antique evaluations and appraisals are
offered for free in a comfortable setting without any pressure or
obligation.
"It's lots of fun," Jim said. "We pay cash or check your choice."

Buying from McNeal Antiques
For those who collect coins, McNeal Antiques offers bullion coins for
sale all the way up to PSGS slabbed investment coins. The store also


sells investment coins, gold bars, krugerrands, maple leaves and
foreign and rare U.S. gold coins, mint sets, Morgan and Peace Dollars,
books and supplies.
"Come in and browse around," Jim said. McNeal Antiques, Jewelry
and Coins is bursting with rare, valuable and coveted items -
something for everyone, from the casual collector to the serious
connoisseur. "You're going to like it here."

What's in your safe deposit box?
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coin is best known for its zany
television commercials and its slogan- What's in YOUR jewelry box?
The business' newest campaign continues along the same lines.
Now, McNeal is asking What s in your safe deposit box?
Some people pay an annual fee of $100 to a bank to store family
heirlooms, documents, gold, silver coins and rare items. In some cases,
people may not even remember what they're safeguarding.
McNeal offers to meet customers at the customer's bank to evaluate
and make an offer at no obligation. Customers also may bring in
anything of value to the store and convert unwanted items into cash.

McNeal Antiques also offers:
Written Certified Appraisals For Insurance purposes, tax and
probate, inheritance distribution or divorce settlement
Estate sales McNeal Antiques will bid to buy one item or entire
estates from lawyers, banks, powers of attorney and the general public
for onsite sales, liquidation or removal
House calls At no cost or obligation, representatives from
McNeal Antiques will meet with you or your family at home, a storage
facility or bank to discuss and evaluate your items for sale and make a
fair offer.

Full moon means good fishing


Beacon, June 24, 2010

Butterflies make a comeback


This weekend's approach-
ing full moon is definitely a
significant one.
Tarpon, snook and man-
grove snapper are grouping
up as they form their spawn-
ing aggregations, a ritual
that takes place a day or two
before the full moon and a
day or two after. What does
this mean for you the angler?
Fish become easier targets
once these aggregations are
located; big numbers of fish
will cause them all to be
more competitive for food at
certain stages of the tide.
Tarpon prefer to group up
in deep water passes like
Egmont and Boca Grande.
As the full moon approaches
they will respond to the out-
going tide crab flush that oc-
curs on these strong tides
providing some excellent
fishing.
Once the moon is full
many of the fish will move
offshore to spawn. Upon the
fishes' return a few days later
good fishing should return as
the fish will most likely be


Fish Tales
S Capt. Tyson
SWallerstein


hungry after their spawn.
There's no doubt that the
snook population was severe-
ly impacted this past winter.
Typically by now there
should be rouge pods of fish
up and down the beach. The
sad reality is that there just
aren't that many fish out
there. But there is however
some fish to be caught.
Pass jetties and bridges
are holding some big fish;
target these spots at night in
the wee hours after the fish
have had a chance to relax
from all the boat traffic. If
fish are holding in the fender
lights, try using a chartreuse
colored Bomber lure and if
you're fishing the bottom
next to the fender a palm
sized pinfish should do the
trick.
Mangrove snapper fishing


and summer full moons are
synonymous for some excel-
lent fishing.
Snapper form huge groups
around the full moon, and
this is often the time to catch
the bigger fish. The Skyway
fishing piers are the best
spot for land based anglers
to target these tasty bait
stealers.
Best fishing definitely oc-
curs at night, but that's not
to say that the fish won't feed
during the day, but their
good vision and overall stub-
bornness to refuse any offer-
ing that doesn't look natural
often gets thrown to the way-
side at night when the fish
can get into a feeding frenzy.
The trick is to use small
hooks, light leaders and only
enough weight to carry your
bait down in the strong cur-
rent. Most often the fish
want the bait drifting natu-
rally with the tide so diligent-
ly reeling up and re-casting
your bait up-current will pay
off better than just letting
your bait sit on the bottom.

A few hours after dawn, clouds move slowly
from the Gulf of Mexico toward the east.
Gardeners on the coast watch longingly as
they darken and drop rain on Interstate 75
and Polk County. Then the sun brightens and
saps the energy from both plants and hu-
mans.


This pattern continues
most of the summer, which is
contrary to what I was told by
all those know-it-all northern-
ers who told me it rains every
afternoon in Florida. I know
they were jealous that I could


move to a place where it was enjoyable being
outdoors nearly 365 days.
Perhaps it's because I have many different
flowering plants in my yard, but it seems there
are many more butterflies around than in pre-
vious years. At the butterfly plant show and
sale at USF recently, it was fascinating to
watch the different swallowtail butterflies de-
scend on the passion fruit vines and pipe
vines.
Their radar is sharp and never once did one
fly into a person. Their objective was either to
drink the nectar from flowers or lay eggs.
While I watched, a black swallowtail laid an
egg on a parsley leaf- that parsley is now
growing in my yard. I may not get to use the
parsley, but I hope to see a beautiful butterfly
wing its way around my yard soon.
Many people want to attract butterflies. As
kids, we captured them in homemade cheese-
cloth nets and mounted them in cotton-
backed frames. Then for years butterflies were


a rarity, due to misuse of DDT and other
chemicals. It is heartwarming to see so many
people create gardens today just for these frag-
ile insects.
When shopping for plants, look for pentas
that is not a hybrid. The butterflies know the
difference and prefer the older
version. Suggestions of more
butterfly plants will be in the
CG4aeV next column.
pVjPb^. There are some pretty flying
Ruth Davies insects that are not so wel-
come a small black-winged
moth with a white spot on
each wing has made itself (at least 100 of
them) at home on every bush in my garden.
Unfortunately, it was identified as the last
stage of the span worm that eats the snow
bush. I'm sure its caterpillar will eat other
plants; vigilance is the key.
The oleander caterpillar's adult or moth
stage has narrow black wings with several
white spots; the body has some blue. The
caterpillar itself is orange with black spots and
hairs. These sting as badly as a wasp. They
will defoliate and weaken the plants they
choose to eat. Look out for these now and into
July.
For those who have night blooming cereus,
keep an eye on it it's blooming time.
Send in the rain; send in the butterflies and
remove the plant-eating moths or send in the
clowns. First, send in the rain.
Ruth Davies can be reached at sun

SEMINOLE Seminole Vocational Educa-

ful. The students will receive recognition and
incentives for their efforts and hard work while
gaining valuable experience assembling and
installing solar units on the small structures.
While the main goal is to build structures
for the homeless, students are learning new
skills used in the construction industry and
utilizing acquired skills from classroom in-
struction to satisfy performance standards re-
quired for national certification in the
construction industry.
Many SVEC construction program students
have already attained their Occupation Health
and Safety Administration 10-hour safety cer-
tification, National Center for Construction
Education and Research core, and NCCER
Level 1 certifications.
SVEC serves 300 students from three area
high schools Seminole, Largo and Osceola
Fundamental. NCCER is a nonprofit education
foundation created to develop industry-driven
standardized craft training programs with
portable credentials to help address the criti-
cal workforce shortage facing the construction
industry.

Varicose veins can cause complications


Health and fitness 23


By MELISSA LATTMAN

Darlene Leverenz attended a seminar
on veins hoping to get answers for a
long-time vein problem her son was hav-
ing. The Indian Rocks Beach resident
soon realized she had varicose veins,
which is a condition that results when
the veins weaken. The small valves in the
vein lose the ability to push blood back
up to the heart. As a result, the blood
pools and the vein puffs up, according to
the Mayo Clinic Web site.
Dr. Daniel Mountcastle of Largo, who
specializes in veins, said the veins in the
leg are like upside down trees. If the
valves are not working the blood pools
and puts everything under pressure. On
the outside the veins can balloon and be
visible. Inside the leg can feel heavy, tired
and achy, he said.
About 90 percent of varicose veins
cannot be seen, Mountcastle said.
Leverenz, 70, did not have visible vari-
cose veins and she attributed her leg
pain as a part of the aging process.
"I couldn't walk well. I was tired. I
went and (Mountcastle) found that I had
real bad veins. I had pain I attributed to
arthritis. I did not have ugly veins," she
said. "I was walking slow. I was tired. I
had the procedure done, it was like a


miracle ... my whole ability to get around
changed. People don't realize the prob-
lems a vein can create."
According to the Mayo Clinic Web site
complications of varicose veins, although
rare, can include ulcers and blood clots.
Mountcastle said it's important to get
treatment sooner than later as the veins
gradually get worse. Its deterioration is
like hypertension or diabetes, he said.

Is your leg pain from
varicose veins?
Mountcastle said the causes for leg
pain fall into four "boxes" the nerves
(i.e. sciatica), the muscular/skeletal (i.e.
arthritis), arteries (i.e. blockages) and
veins. He calls veins the forgotten box.
He said in 2002 the FDA approved a
laser procedure, which treats about 40
percent more of the vein problems.
Mountcastle said these are simple treat-
ments done in a doctor's office.
Other symptoms of varicose veins can
include "an achy or heavy feeling in your
legs; burning, throbbing, muscle cramp-
ing and swelling in your lower legs; wors-
ened pain after sitting or standing for a
long time and itching around one or
more of your veins," according to the
Mayo Clinic Web site.


Darlene Leverenz' son Vincent ended
up having his varicose veins treated,
also. From the age of 18 a vein in his leg
grew for about 20 years. It looked like a
lightning bolt and kept growing, he said.
"It was OK but my knee would hurt ...
(the procedure) didn't hurt. The puffiness
went away and I realized my knee didn't
hurt."

Who gets varicose veins?
Mountcastle said about 80 percent of
the time it's genetic. Other things can in-
crease the likelihood of having varicose
veins. Pregnancy softens the valves in
the legs. Jobs requiring a lot of standing
in one place such as teachers, hair styl-
ists and retailers increase the likelihood.
As do people who do extreme sports like
professional soccer players or triathletes,
he said.
According to the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services about 50 to
55 percent of women and 40 to 45 per-
cent of men in the United States suffer
from some type of vein problem. Varicose
veins affect half of people 50 years and
older. One of the department's Web sites
answers many questions on varicose
veins. Visit www.womenshealth.gov/faq
/varicose-spider-veins.cfm#H.


Too much salt can lead to many bad things


Salt is essential to keeping your body's fluids in balance. But
too much salt can lead to a host of health problems.
The chemical name for dietary salt, or table salt, is sodium
chloride. Most doctors focus on the sodium part.
'The best-known effect of sodium on health is the relation-
ship between sodium and blood pressure," explains Dr. Cather-


ine Loria of the National Institutes of
Health.
Dozens of studies, in both animals
and people, have shown that increas-
ing salt intake can raise blood pres-
sure. And high blood pressure has
been linked to heart disease, stroke,
kidney failure and other health prob-
lems.
About one in three adults nation-
wide has high blood pressure. Another
third have blood pressure numbers
high enough to risk developing high
blood pressure. That's why, Loria says,
"it's really important for the majority of
the population to reduce their blood
pressure."


Most of the salt
American's di
prepared and pi
including restau
cuts and ca
Surprisingly, ov
comes from grair
as breads, cereal
chips.


Experts recommend that people take in less than 2,400 mil-
ligrams of sodium a day. People with high blood pressure
should shoot for 1,500 milligrams or less. But right now, the
average man in the United States takes in over 4,000 mil-
ligrams of salt per day, and the average woman over 2,800 mil-


ligrams.
Would you miss the taste? "Several studies have shown that
as you gradually reduce sodium intake, you lessen your desire
for salty food," Loria says. In the United Kingdom, where salt
consumption has dropped by 10 percent over the past five
years, surveys found that most people didn't notice any differ-
ence in the taste of their food.
Most of the salt in the average Amer-
in the average ican's diet comes in prepared and
processed foods, including restaurant
et comes in food, cold cuts and canned foods. Sur-
rocessed foods, prisingly, over 20 percent comes from
rant food, cold grain products, such as breads, cere-
nned als, crackers and chips.
nned foodS. "I think the best guidance we have is
ver 20 percent for people to pay attention to nutrition
1 products, such facts on the labels," Loria says. Try to
choose foods that list less than 5 per-
Is, crackers and cent of the daily value of sodium per
serving on the nutrition facts label.
Even small reductions in salt can
help your blood pressure. If you can't
find a low-salt alternative to a particular food, try something
that's lower than what you usually buy.
Why not start now? Make small changes at first, and then
keep working to gradually lower your family's salt intake.

Patricia Louise HODSON
Patricia Louise Hodson, 86, of Belleair,
Florida, passed away June 10, 2010 at home,
surrounded by loving family. She was born
November 14, 1923 in Newton, Iowa to
Gladstone Ewart Smith and Tina Florence
S \\ DeBolt. Patty Lou was raised on Jersey cattle
dairy farms. She graduated from Liberty High
School and spent considerable time in San Diego, California
with her Aunt Darlene, who was a huge influence in her life.
She graduated from A.I.B. Business School and worked as a
legal secretary in Des Moines, Iowa. It was there that she met
a medical student named Marvin Hodson, who became the
love of her life for 66 years. They were married in
Clemons, Iowa and had two children, Connie and Larry. Five
years later they moved to Jewell, Iowa. Patricia was very
civic-minded and was Grand Esther of Iowa in Eastern Star
in 1960. After managing her husband's medical office in
Jewell for 20 years, they moved to Belleair, Florida where
they worked and resided for 40 years. She is survived by her
daughter, Connie Louise Scadron; son, Dr. Larry Luverne
Hodson and wife, Becky; sister, Shirley Jacobson;
granddaughers, Dawn Louise Galbraith and Dr. Kelly
LaraAnn Hodson; grandsons, Dr. Sean Charles Luverne
Hodson and Daniel Clark; and five great-grandchildren, Kira
Galbraith, Elise Galbraith, Shane, Hunter, and Bailey Clark.
Funeral services were held on June 13, 2010 at Anona
United Methodist Church in Largo, Florida, with Rev. John
Hires presiding. A horse-drawn caisson took her to be with
her beloved husband at Serenity Gardens Mausoleum.
Condolences may be offered at www.mossfeasterlargo.com.
George Dennison CLARK
SGeorge Dennison Clark, 85, of Largo, Florida,
passed away May 14, 2010, in McKinney,
Texas, peacefully with his family by his side. He
was born and raised in Wakefield, Rhode
Island. After high school, George proudly served
his country as a United States Marine during
World War II. After the war, he earned a
bachelors degree from the University of Rhode Island.
Following college, he moved to Clearwater, Florida, where
he met Marye Smock. They married in July, 1952 and had
50 happy years together raising their family in the Largo
area. George began his career in education, teaching at
Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg in the early
1950s. He retired in 1987 from the Pinellas County School
System after more than 30 years as a history teacher,
guidance counselor and registrar at Largo High School;
spending the latter part of his career at the Pinellas County
School Administrative Office as an FTE Administrator.
George was a charter member at Lake Seminole Presbyterian
Church, which was founded in 1965. He was an active
member of the Seminole Rotary Club, where he was a
recipient of the Paul Harris award. With George's passing,
the world has lost one of the good guys. George is
survived by his children, Kathryn Clark Ryland and
husband, Terry; Mark Douglas Clark and wife, Lori;
grandchildren, Tyler Clark and Abbagail Clark; sister, Janice
Dinonsie; and nephew, Gary Dinonsie and his family. He
was preceded in death by his parents and wife. A memorial
service will be held at Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church
on June 26th at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers, the family
requests donations be made to Lake Seminole Presbyterian
Church, 8505 113th Street, Seminole, FL, 33772, in
memory of George Clark, or a charity of your choice. To

For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816

To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858

My name is Darryl Willis and I'm responsible for overseeing BP's
claims process in the Gulf coast. I was born and raised in Louisiana.
At age 70, my mother lost her home to Hurricane Katrina. Afterwards,
she experienced enormous frustration. So I know first hand that
when tragedy strikes on a scale like this, people need help without
a lot of hassles.

Independent Claims Compensation Fund
Working with the President, we've created a $20 billion fund to satisfy
all legitimate claims. This fund will be administered by a highly respected
independent overseer and will not come at any cost to taxpayers.

How To File A Claim
To speed help, BP's Claims Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week. The number is 1-800-440-0858. When someone calls, they'll
find out how to submit their claim and can schedule a face-to-face
meeting with one of our claims specialists. After meeting, we will
be in touch in four days or less and can issue them a check right on
the spot. They can also file online at bp.com/claims.

Replacing Lost Monthly Income
Our focus has been on helping the fishermen, small businesses and
others who aren't able to work until the spill is cleaned up, by making
payments to replace their lost monthly income. These payments will
continue for as long as needed.

We have already paid tens of thousands of claims amounting to
more than $100 million. We have recently simplified and accelerated
the payment of commercial large loss claims. Over one thousand
people are here to help in 33 walk-in claims offices in the Gulf. We
have promised to honor all legitimate claims and we will.

Our Responsibility
The Gulf is my home. Doing this right is important to me. My
commitment is that we will keep you informed, and we'll be here
as long as it takes. We may not always be perfect, but we will
make this right.
