City millage rate to stay the same

However, revenue will drop due to a decrease in real estate values


By BOB McCLURE


SEMINOLE Taxpayers in Seminole will not
see an increase in ad valorem taxes for fiscal year
2011 nor will they see a drop in services offered
by the city.
Those were the points made by City Manager
Frank Edmunds during a budget workshop July
20 that was attended by councilors Thomas Barn-
horn, John Counts, Bob Matthews, Leslie Waters
and Mayor Jimmy Johnson.
Edmunds explained that the proposed budget
will maintain the current millage rate of 2.4793,
which will produce a reduction in revenue for the
upcoming year due to lower real estate values.
The alternative was the rollback rate of 2.7794,
which would have produced an additional
$285,000 in revenue for the city, Edmunds said.


The proposed budget of $15.2
million is a 2.3 percent decrease
from the current budget, or
$350,642 less than the 2010
budget.


The proposed budget of $15.2 million is a 2.3
percent decrease from the current budget, or
$350,642 less than the 2010 budget.
A first public hearing on the proposed budget is
planned Wednesday, Sept. 15 and a final public
hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
The new budget goes into effect Oct. 1.


Overall, the city's Community Development De-
partment will absorb the largest decrease a 19.1
percent cut from the current budget, or
$155,065.
A big part of that will be a $32,396 cut in
salaries, thanks to the downgrading of a senior
planner position from full time to part time. An-
other $5,514 will be saved in insurance premi-
ums and $12,300 in professional/engineering
services, which will be handled on a contract
basis and passed on to applicants.
The department with the largest dollar cut will
be the fire department, which is faced with a 3
percent cutback, or $250,761. It will be most no-
ticeable in fire administration, which is taking a
27.4 percent cut.

Back-to-school tax


holiday set to return


By SUZETTE PORTER

Back-to-school shopping might be
a bit less expensive this year, thanks
to the return of one of Florida's most
popular tax holidays.
The Back-to-School Sales Tax
Holiday is Aug. 13-15. During the
three-day period, shoppers won't be
charged sales tax on school sup-
plies, books, clothing and footwear
priced under a certain dollar
amount.
The first back-to-school sales tax
holiday was in 1998, and it contin-
ued until the years 2008 and 2009
when the state Legislature said no to
all sales tax holidays due to budget
constraints.
In 2010, opinions changed and


state lawmakers voted to reinstate
the holiday for school supplies. Gov.
Charlie Crist signed House Bill 483
into law on May 26.
"Our children deserve to have the
resources and materials they need
to be successful and competitive in
the classroom," Crist said in a press
release sent out the day he signed
the 2010 holiday into law. "I am con-
fident this tax break will help stu-
dents, families and businesses as
they prepare for a new school year. It
is important that we continue to al-
leviate the tax burden on Floridians,
as well as seek ways to improve the
economic future of our state."
The tax holiday could save Florida

NOAA re-opens portion of offshore waters to fishermen


By SUZETTE PORTER


It was mostly good news from the Gulf of Mexico this week-
end as Tropical Storm Bonnie fizzled and NOAA opened one-
third of the closed fishing area.
In addition, BP's well has remained shut down since July 15.
Thad Allen, national incident commander, made the decision to
leave the well capped as vessels and equipment were moved
away from the well site in advance of the weather.
Monitoring vessels did remain onsite and no problems were
reported, Allen said July 25 in a press briefing.
Officials estimated that the weak tropical storm could delay
work on BPs leaking well by seven to 10 days. Crews were at
work late July 25 reassembling the drilling rigs.
Allen said the vessels involved in monitoring the well and
those working on the relief wells were the first vessels back. The
containment vessel Q4000 also was onsite and preparing to get
back to work.
Current estimates say it will take about a week before crews


can place the liner in the final piece of casing on the relief well.
When the casing is finished, BP plans to do a static kill, shoot-
ing mud down through the top of the containment cap into the
leaking well to try to kill it from the top.
The final step will be the bottom kill through the relief well,
which could begin as early as mid-August.
While weather delayed work on the well, local fishermen got
the go-ahead to return to waters offshore Pinellas that have
been closed for several weeks.
NOAA re-opened 26,388 square miles of Gulf water to com-
mercial and recreational fishing July 22. Much of the water is
off the west coast of Florida.
Jane Lubchenco, undersecretary of commerce for oceans
and atmosphere and NOAA administrator, said in a press con-
ference Thursday afternoon that much of the area had been
closed originally due to concern about sheen near the loop cur-
rent.
"But the oil never materialized," she said.
Since mid-June, NOAA data have shown no oil in the area,


and U.S. Coast Guard observers flying over the area in the last
30 days have not observed any oil. Trajectory models of the
oil's movement show that the area is at low-risk.
In addition, fish caught in the area and tested by NOAA ex-
perts have shown no signs of contamination.
"I'd feel very confident eating any seafood from the area
being opened today," Lubchenco said.
She said sampling would continue in the marketplace and
dockside to ensure the public's safety.
Lubchenco said sensory testing allows experts to detect very
minute parts per million. She said the tests were done looking
for oil and dispersants. She said no fish tested had shown
signs of contamination.
Lubchenco said NOAA and its university partners also were
continuing to look for subsurface oil. Thus far, she said the
only place where subsurface oil has been found in concentra-
tions has been near the wellhead.
Lubchenco said she felt re-opening Gulf waters was the right
thing to do for American consumers and local fishermen.
She said appropriate cautions had been taken and rigorous
testing continues.
"We're able to test to very, very small amounts," she said.
"Every sample is clean."

County commissioners review 2011 CIP budget


By SUZETTE PORTER


CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners began the
task of putting their stamp on the fiscal year 2011 countywide
budget during a July 20 work session.
The discussion began with a follow-up on the capital im-
provement program originally presented on June 10. As in
prior years, the proposed CIP eliminates, defers and downsizes
many planned projects.
One idea to help "provide necessary liquidity" in the capital
projects fund is an inter-fund loan from the solid waste fund in
fiscal years 2010 and 2011. Staff estimated that the capital
projects fund needs an additional $15 million for fiscal year
2010 and $5 million in fiscal year 2011.
Benefits of an inter-fund loan versus conventional bonding
include lower borrowing costs; interest accrues to a county en-
tity; terms that are more flexible; and no reserve requirement.
'The solid waste fund will be made whole as the loan would
be at prevailing market interest rates," the staff report said.

Road project deferred
Staff was asked to summarize the rationale for rescoping the
Park Street/Starkey Road, Tyrone to Bryan Dairy project to in-
clude only the key intersection at Starkey and Bryan Dairy
roads.
Pete Yauch, director of Public Works and Transportation,
said because the project was estimated to cost in excess of $34
million, staff recommended deferring the project until funding
becomes available.
The project encompasses the County Road One corridor from


Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay Drive.
Plans had called for widening the road from four lanes to six
lanes, based on traffic growth estimates made in the 1990s.
The project also included bicycle lanes and intersection im-
provements.
Yauch said due to the budget shortfall, and new information
showing that traffic volumes had not increased as much as an-
ticipated, staff recommends deferring the project.
Staff also recommends that the road be resurfaced in sched-
uled segments during the years 2011 and 2012 to protect its
structural integrity.
Yauch said notices would be sent to the cities, Seminole and
Largo, among others.

Gulf Boulevard funding
Commissioners also discussed the plan to restore the alloca-
tion for Gulf Boulevard from the proposed $26 million to the
original amount of $35 million.
Staff notes show that the proposed capital improvement pro-
gram budgets $3.5 million for the project for fiscal years 2013-
2016 with an increase to $7 million for fiscal years 2017-2019.
The county attorney's office is currently working on a draft
interlocal agreement.
Seel said beach communities were meeting to discuss their
priorities for the project. She asked how they could begin when
the funding did not start until 2013.
County Administrator Bob LaSala said scheduling the fund-
ing to begin in 2013 should not impede the cities' ability to
start projects. He said the interlocal agreement would give them
the start-date they need to get bonding.


2011 budget calls for EMS, fire millage increases


By SUZETTE PORTER


CLEARWATER- Pinellas County residents open your wallets.
The proposed fiscal year 2011 budget calls for a millage in-
crease to pay for emergency medical services. Millage rates also
are going up for some fire districts.
County Administrator Bob LaSala presented the proposed
budget to the commissioners on July 13. Per the commission-
er's policy, the overall countywide millage and millage for unin-
corporated residents remains unchanged.
The EMS fund is a special revenue fund established by refer-
endum in 1980, according to information in LaSala's proposed
budget. County commissioners can levy up to 1.5 mills annual-
ly on a countywide basis to pay for the operation of the emer-
gency medical system.
The current EMS village rate is 0.5832. The proposed rate
for 2011 is 0.6860.
The EMS millage rate must go up to pay for increase to first
responder contractual payments, LaSala writes in his report.
Ambulance user fees also will increase to help cover costs.
Plans call for the use of $5.5 million from EMS reserves to
make up additional budget shortfall.
The county has been looking for ways to decrease costs asso-
ciated with providing EMS services for the past two years. A


consultant has been hired to study the situation, and a report
is expected to be available sometime in 2011.
The county contracts with 18 first responder providers.
These providers increased their requests for funding by 4.1 per-
cent or $1.5 million. The increase in millage will provide an ad-
ditional $1.4 million in revenue.
Pinellas County has 12 separate municipal services taxing
units that provide fire protection services in unincorporated
areas. These fire districts were created in 1973 via a Special Act
of the state legislature.
The board of Pinellas County Commissioners has the author-
ity to levy ad valorem taxes to fund fire protection within the
districts. County staff negotiates with each municipality for the
cost of fire service within each district.
To meet cost increases, the proposed 2011 includes millage
hikes for six of the 12 fire districts. These districts are Clearwa-
ter, Gandy, Largo, Safety Harbor, High Point and Tierra Verde.
The increased millage would be charged to residents of unin-
corporated areas.
Four fire districts Belleair Bluffs/Largo, Dunedin, Pinellas
Park and Seminole have 10 percent in reserve funds and "are
well positioned going into FY 2011 through FY 2020 without
immediately having to increase millage rates for their districts,"
LaSala said.


Potholes and resurfacing
One of the biggest complaints from the public in recent
years has been about the increase in potholes.
Staff proposes solving the problem by increasing the bud-
get for resurfacing from $3.5 million to $8.5 million in fiscal
year 2011 and from $3.5 million to $5.255 million in fiscal
year 2012.

Area dentists team up for


free back-to-school exams


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE For the second consecutive
year, Seminole dentist Dr. Sandra Lilo is
spearheading an effort to provide children
with free dental exams prior to the start of
school.
The Smile For School program offers com-
plimentary teeth cleaning, assessment and X-
rays for children returning to school. Children
up to age 18 are eligible with proof of registra-
tion at an area school.
Lilo will offer the service at her office, 8300
113th St., Friday, Aug. 6 by appointment. She
will be joined by at least 17 other dentists and
oral surgeons in Pinellas County, along with
one dentist in California.
For a complete list of the participating den-
tists, go to www.smileforschool.com.
"We had 10 dentists participate last year
and we have 17 so far this year, including two
oral surgeons," Lilo said last week. "Last year
we reported (to the Florida Dental Association
and West Coast Dental Association) $15,000


worth of free care to 45 children in my office
alone. The youngest we had was 3 and the
oldest was 17 who had never been to a den-
tist."
Lilo said the oral surgeons will address
older children with wisdom tooth screenings
and X-rays worth about $450.
Dentists will perform dental exams and X-
rays with a normal value of between $130 to
$200, she said.
'There's no hardship stipulation," Lilo said.
"All parents have to do is come in and fill out
the paper work."
The thrust of the exams will be education in
dental care and eating choices, Lilo said.
In addition to the Smile For School program,
Lilo said the University of Florida dental school
at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg Col-
lege is offering a similar program on Saturday,
Aug. 7 and the a Pinellas County Health De-
partment has a program for children that uses
a sliding fee based on family income.
To schedule an appointment at Lilo's office,
call 398-7473.

TAX, from page 1

families an estimated $26 million.

Tax-exempt items
The state has a list of eligible items and
published guidelines that retailers and shop-
pers must follow.
In general, books, clothing, footwear and
certain accessories selling for $50 or less are
eligible, as are certain school supplies selling
for $10 or less.
The state defines books as "a set of printed
sheets bound together and published in a vol-
ume." Newspapers, magazines, other periodi-
cals and audio books are not books and will
be taxable during the holiday.
Clothing is defined as any article of wearing
apparel, including all footwear (except skis,
swim fins, roller blades and skates) intended
to be worn on or about the body. Clothing
does not include watches, watchbands, jewel-
ry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs or sporting
equipment.
School supplies include pens, pencils,
erasers, crayons, notebooks, notebook filler
paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, con-
struction paper, markers, folders, poster
board, composition books, poster paper, scis-
sors, cellophane tape, glue, paste, rulers, com-
puter disks, protractors, compasses and
calculators.
The state also has a rule about where pur-
chases can be made or, more importantly,
where they can't be made.
For example, eligible items are not exempt
from sales tax if purchased at a theme park or
entertainment complex. So, a T-shirt with a
cartoon character on the front purchased at
Disney World would be taxable, although a
similar T-shirt purchased at a department
store would be exempt.
Eligible items also lose their tax-exempt sta-
tus if purchased at a public lodging establish-
ment, aka a hotel, motel, resort, beach
cottage, or airport.

Tricks people play
The Florida Department of Revenue is on to
tricks people try to make an item meet the
rules.
For example, officials say you can't split up
a pair of shoes priced at $80 to make each
shoe sell for $40, and you can't split up a
$100 suit into two pieces, jacket and pants for
$50 each. You can't split up a set of books
into separate volumes to lower the price of
each book.
People also can't take apart sets to lower
the price or remove an ineligible item.
The Department of Revenue uses the exam-
ple of a set containing a wallet and key chain
for $35. The rules say the set is not tax-ex-
empt, even though the wallet would be if sold
separately, because the key chain is taxable;
therefore, the entire set is taxable. The same


goes for a desk set that includes a stapler be-
cause the stapler is not on the list of tax-ex-
empt items.
Buy one, get one coupons, manufacturer's
coupons and rebates cannot be used to bring

Second busiest shopping
season of the year
The Florida Retail Federation played a big
part in the sales tax holiday's return. Sally
West, director of government affairs for FRF,
attended the bill's signing ceremony and
spoke on its benefits for Florida families and
businesses.
'This tax break will enable Florida families
to buy school supplies and clothing for the
school year without the additional burden of
state and local taxes," West said. 'The tax hol-
iday also will provide a much needed boost to
Florida's economy."
According to the National Retail Federation,
combined K-12 and college spending will
reach $55.12 billion in 2010, "serving as the
second biggest consumer-spending event for
retailers behind the winter holidays."
The NRF's 2010 Consumer Intentions and
Actions Back to School survey, conducted by
BIGresearch, showed that the average Ameri-
can family plans to spend $605 on clothes,
shoes, supplies and electronics, compared to
$548 in 2009. Total spending on children in
grades K-12 is expected to reach $21.35 mil-
lion.
Spending for college-age students is expect-
ed to remain similar to last year, the NRF said,
with the average family spending $616 on new
apparel, furniture for dorms or apartments,
school supplies and electronics.
Florida's sales tax holiday does not include
electronics or furniture
According to the survey, people intend to
buy more store brands and generic products
this year, and more plan to do comparative
shopping online. They also plan to shop in
discount stores and department stores. Two
other targeted destinations were clothing and
office supply stores.
Online shopping also is expected to get an
almost 8 percent boost from shoppers this
year.
"Whether to save a few bucks and compare
prices or simply because of the convenience,
more people will shop online this year," the
NRF said.
Almost half those surveyed by NRF said
they planned to start shopping three weeks
before the first day of school.
Pinellas County public schools open on
Tuesday, Aug. 24.


By WAYNE AYERS

MADEIRA BEACH A last minute protest
by business owners, primarily hotel inter-
ests, has set back the city's "recycling for
everyone" effort.
Recycling programs for single and multi-
family residences have been up and running
since April.
Final approval of an ordinance requiring
commercial establishments to recycle speci-
fied waste materials was expected at the City
Commission July 20 meeting.
However, a contingent of business owners
brought their concerns to the commission,
who then voted to table the issue for further
study.
The residential program is voluntary, but
homeowners are billed for the service
whether they use it or not. Businesses are
required to recycle under the program's
rules, but may use the hauler of their choice.
Most speakers at the meeting agreed recy-
cling is a good idea, but felt it should not be
mandatory. They also objected to a require-
ment of at least two pickups a week.
"We have businesses in town who do not
have the capability to sort trash," said Robin
Grabowski, president of the Tampa Bay
Beaches Chamber of Commerce. A recycling
requirement would be a particular hardship
on hotels, she said, who would either have to
ask guests to sort their trash or train staff to
do it. There is a big turnover in hospitality
industry employees, she added.
What would happen to businesses that did
not recycle, Grabowski asked. City attorney
Michael Connolly said violators of the ordi-
nance could be prosecuted through the city's
special magistrate.
Hotel owner T.J. Gill said someone in his
establishment would have to go through and
separate the trash to comply with the recy-
cling requirement.
"In this economic climate, it's draconian to
force businesses to participate (in the pro-
gram)," he said.


MILLAGE, from page 1

The EMS budget will increase 8.2 percent,
or $153,367, due primarily to a 58 percent in-
crease by Pinellas County in the relief staffing
allowance to $392,198.
The EMS division will still be manned by the
same number of employees and will have the
same number of units as it currently does, Ed-
munds said.
The city will save a few dollars on law en-
forcement. Due to the elimination of a vacant
community policing/traffic position, Edmunds
and Director of Administration Harry Kyne
were able to negotiate a lower price in 2011
with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. The
city is paying the sheriffs office $1.76 million
under the current budget and will pay $1.71
million in the proposed budget.
Although the library will see a 2.3 percent
decrease in funding next year, there will be no
cut in services or personnel there. Due to a re-
duction in state and county funds to the Pinel-
las County Library cooperative, funds for new
books, audiovisual materials and subscrip-
tions to electronic data bases will be cut
$35,000, or 44 percent. Other than that as-


Joe Jorgensen of Travel Resort Services
said guests would be told when they check
in "Here are your three containers (for recy-
cling)." Jorgensen said, "Would you want to
be in a hotel and do that?" He urged that the
program be made voluntary.
Patricia Hubbard of Hubbard Enterprises
said space is scarce for her businesses at
John's Pass. The recycling program would
require a paper bin, glass bin, and a garbage
bin, she said.
Mandatory recycling places a burden on
hotel owners especially since they would
have to add and train staff, said Lisa Hand
of Barefoot Beach Hotel. She urged the com-
mission to take a second look at the ordi-
nance and get together with the businesses.
The opposition to the business recycling
program came as a surprise, coming as it
did on the ordinance's second and final
reading.
"We've been talking about this all year,"
said city attorney Michael Connelly.
"I haven't heard any of this before," said
Commissioner Carol Reynolds.
The commission voted 5-0 to table the or-
dinance for further study, and get input
from businesses.
Commissioner Steve Kochick, however,
warned the city will not abandon the recy-
cling issue.

Electronic signs OK'd
An ordinance allowing electronic message
boards and animated signs was narrowly ap-
proved. But the commission gave clear no-
tice that new restrictions could be added
that will make their widespread use unlikely.
The signs are currently banned in the city,
with one exception.
Pinellas County mistakenly approved a
permit earlier this year for an electronic sign
at the Surf Style store in John's Pass Village.
The commission then decided at an April
workshop to allow the signs with unlimited
features. The devices can flash, scroll, text,
show graphics and even brief videos.


pect, the library budget remains almost status
quo.
The city's Recreation Division also will re-
main almost identical to the current budget
with the exception of senior activities. Budget-
ing for senior trips and bus transportation is
down 47 percent because of a lack of partici-
pation, Edmunds said.
A 25 percent increase in funding for electric-
ity is planned for the recreation center due to
inefficiencies with the current, temporary
HVAC system. Edmunds said the estimated
$228,000 cost for electricity should diminish
noticeably once a new system is operational
during Fiscal Year 2012.
The only change to the proposed budget
came from Barnhorn who asked for an addi-
tional $1,000 per councilor for travel from the
current $2,500. Barnhorn said such a move
would allow the entire City Council to attend
National League of Cities and Florida League of
Cities conventions.
Barnhorn suggested allocating $6,000 from
the $20,000 the city donates to the Seminole
Chamber of Commerce each year.
The proposal failed to gain support and
died.

Outstanding warrant
results in arrest
TREASURE ISLAND A 37-year-old Sarasota man was ar-
rested by police July 25 on an outstanding warrant in the 100
block of Gulf Boulevard.
Marcoust Dula was taken into custody on a Sarasota Coun-
ty warrant for contempt of court and was transported to the
Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $250.
Police were called to the scene when residents complained of
Dula asking motorists for rides. Dula and another man with
him advised police they were waiting for the Beach Trolley.
A routine check of both men turned up the warrant on Dula.

Woman charged with stealing
$176,000 from work
CLEARWATER A Clearwater woman was arrested July 19
for allegedly stealing nearly $176,000 from her employer, ac-
cording to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report.
Detectives from the economic crimes unit began investigat-
ing after William Golson, the owner of Golson Law Firm, dis-
covered checks for $34,000 that the suspect had allegedly
written to herself, the report said. During the investigation, de-
tectives found that while the suspect was gainfully employed
by the law firm as an office manager and bookkeeper with
signing privileges on the corporate checking account, she used
her position to write dozens of unauthorized checks to herself
and to third party companies to whom she owed money, the re-
port said.
The third parties were mostly for credit card companies, in-
cluding Capital One, CitiCard, CitiFinancial Retail Services,
Beneficial Finance, Bank of America, American Express, and
Discover Card. She also allegedly used the stolen money to
make payments to Nelnet, a student loan financing company.
Detectives say that the debt on the credit cards included pur-
chases at various stores, supermarkets, hair salons, restau-
rants, home improvement stores, car rentals, and hotel stays
in Orlando, San Francisco, Disney, and Chicago, as well as
other expenses while traveling.
The criminal activity occurred over at least six years, the re-
port said. The suspect, Kerry Sue McCallister-Higgins, 34, was
paid for her employment by a separate payroll company, indi-

casting there would be no reason for any checks from the firm
to be written out to her name, the report said. Of the nearly
$176,000 stolen from her employer, about $46,000 were in
checks written to herself, and about $130,000 were in checks
written to the third party companies. The dollar amount of the
loss to the law firm is expected to increase, the report said.
McCallister-Higgins was arrested around 8:45 p.m. on July
19 at her home. She was charged with grand theft and released
from the Pinellas County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

Alabama police kill suspect,
mother found dead in the Park
PINELLAS PARK- Police in Mobile, Ala., shot and killed a
city man on July 26 who was wanted in connection with the
death of his mother the day before.
The murder victim, Debbie Neace, 52, was discovered last
Sunday morning by her long-time boyfriend.
Pinellas County sheriffs deputies said the victim suffered
obvious trauma to her body.
Deputies said Neace's son, Corey Hicks, 24, escaped in the
victim's 2006 silver 4-door Toyota Corolla. Deputies said he
was tracked down to a Days Inn in Mobile after Pinellas Coun-
ty issued an arrest warrant for the grand theft of his mother's
car.
Deputies said Hicks was shot and killed by the Mobile police
SWAT team after he attacked them with an ax.
A Mobile police spokesman, Officer Christopher Levy, said
Hicks came at SWAT members swinging an ax. He was shot
and died at the scene.

Homeless man arrested
for alleged purse snatching
PINELLAS PARK A homeless man was arrested on July 20
after he allegedly snatched a woman's purse and escaped on
foot.
Wallace R. Reynolds, 34, was charged with grand theft. He
remains in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Officer Daniel Butterworth said the victim, who was not
identified, was at the Publix parking lot, 4701 Park Blvd., at
about 3:05 p.m. when Reynolds allegedly snatched her purse
from a shopping cart and ran away.

New Olympic event
Editor:
I have a great idea for an Olympic event. It's
called red-light running. I am sure Pinellas
County would win the gold. I see this every
day. Honest citizens obeying the traffic laws
only being hit by those who do not. The great-
est cause in Pinellas County of accidents are
failure to yield the right of way, aka red light
running, running stop signs and right turn on
red after stopping.
I have asked Pinellas County to install red
light cameras at various locations to no avail.
They are afraid of lawsuits connected with
them. How about this idea. Putting signs that
state red light runners are on camera and will
be cited and put up fake cameras and make
people think twice before running the lights.

Praise for city manager
Editor:
As a resident of Seminole since 2007, I
would like to express my personal apprecia-
tion for the fine work accomplished by the City
Manager, Frank Edmunds.
I was pleased to read that the majority of
City Council members also recently gave
Frank Edmunds praise for his accomplish-
ments.
Being a private citizen, I have had concerns
regarding the city's future sustainability plans.
I have also been curious about Seminole's new
Public Works/Emergency Operations Center.
On more than one occasion, Frank Ed-
munds has spent considerable time to answer
my questions. I appreciate the extra effort of
this city's manager.

Misleading comments
Editor:
In response to misleading media comments
regarding my performance evaluation score of
City Manager Frank Edmunds, I ask that you
watch the video of the workshop to hear my
actual comments. Sadly, the number score,
devoid of explanation, led to slanted reporting.
The video and related documentation can be
viewed on www.patplant.blogspot.com. I now
provide reasons in support of the numerical
values I gave.
I prefaced my evaluation stating that as a
resident and taxpayer myself, I live with the
benefits of Edmunds' leadership. The following
information will clarify reasoning for a seem-
ingly low, certainly not a failing, score.
The evaluation contains 24 questions: a rat-
ing of 3 = Exceeds expectations; 2 = meets ex-
pectations; 1 = Almost always meets
expectations; and 0 = No basis for rating, or,
Does not meet expectations. A point value of
72 (3 x 24) means you exceed every expecta-
tion. A rating of 48 (2 x 24) means you meet
expectations. A score of 24 (1 x 24) means you
almost always meet expectations. My score


both years was "almost always meets expecta-
tions".
Evaluation questions measure performance
such as "control and management of emo-
tions," and "capability for coping with stress." I
scored Edmunds as "meeting expectations."
Our city has been paying for Edmunds'
masters degree for several years. Last year, I
asked what his degree would be in and when
he expected to complete it. Edmunds has
never answered my questions. I could not pro-
vide a high score for "professional develop-
ment through continued education."
These three questions alone represent nine
points.
New to office last year, I had not yet ob-
served all dimensions of job performance and
so marked "no basis for rating."
These questions registered as "0" points,
and reduced the overall score.
Contrary to what news media reported, I did
not fault Edmunds for high turnover of city
clerks. I simply stated that a good employer
should examine the reasons for employee
turnover. As the video shows, I asked that we
all do what we can to support new and exist-
ing employees.
I worked hard on these evaluations, and
take my city council responsibilities seriously.
Only an overall score was reported by media,
and no information relevant to the written
evaluation, or its additional comments section,
were presented. News reporters should do
their job by providing information which in-
vestigates and educates.
I regard probing questions as a basis for
democracy and an opportunity to improve the
city where I choose to live. If input is not con-
sidered, then evaluations are a mere formality,
and a continuation of the status quo.
For a record of the actual proceedings you
can make a public records request of our city
clerk, or watch the videotaped meetings on
our city website. I would be glad to speak to
concerns, after people read my written evalua-
tion and additional comments section. This
will help proceed with facts, rather than
hearsay.

Seminole city councilor

Economic extravagance?
Editor:
Thank you for the opportunity to offer input
to the very important topic of spending re-
straint and fiscal accountability. At the July
13 Seminole City Council meeting, Councilor
Matthews moved to have the city manager's
contract extended for three more years. The
council-manager plan of local government can
provide policy interface with other local, re-
gional, state and federal agencies in matters of
mutual concern through the establishment of
city policy as long as the funding is managed
to meet the needs of the people.

The kickoff cometh


Here we are on the cusp of
football season.
All through the nation peo-
ple are doing their warm-ups.
Younger men (and some
women) will actually play.
Older fans will hunker down
to watch or read about foot-
ball.
I'm good at hunkering.
Each year at this time I re-
solve to follow football with
intensity. I will learn all I can
about the college and pro
teams. I will learn the names
of the coaches, quarterbacks
and star players. I will study
strategy and terminology.
But each year I end up a
liar. I never follow through. I
get diverted by a hundred
other interests. I find myself
rooting for two pro teams -
the Buccaneers and the New
England Patriots but that's
it. I couldn't care less about
the other teams until the
January playoffs arrive. As
for the colleges, there are just
too many to keep track of.
Even so I consider myself a
football fan. For example, I
keep waiting for the day
when the first 400-pound
player trots on the field.
Maybe he already has, and I
missed it. I know that 300-
pound-plus players are be-
coming commonplace. I
wonder what happens to
those guys after their playing
days are over. I suppose they
go on living same as anyone
else, except for larger
wardrobes.
A neglected aspect of foot-
ball is the cheerleaders. They
are mostly young, vivacious
women, much more attrac-
tive than the players. But
when was the last time you
saw a TV camera zero in on a
cheerleading squad for more
than 10 seconds at a time?
Never, is when. There seems
to be an unwritten rule that
forbids more than brief


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


glimpses of cheerleaders,
even though the TV produc-
ers know that millions of
viewers, mostly men, are
aching to see the camera
focus on pom-poms and
other accoutrements of the
cheerleading profession for,
say, three whole minutes at a
time.
Another ignored feature of
college football are the fight
songs. American colleges and
universities have some splen-
did, inspiring fight songs.
They make you want to get
down on the field and throw
body blocks at those oppos-
ing ruffians, those dastardly
curs. I think every TV college
football broadcast should be
preceded by 15 minutes of
fight songs, with the lyrics
printed on the screen.
For example: "Fight on for
USC, somebody bribed the
referee!"
Or the Yale song: "Bulldog,
bulldog, bow-wow-wow, Eli
Yale!" One of the less stirring
fight songs I learned while at-
tending Syracuse University
began this way: 'The Saltine
warrior is a mighty man and
his weapon is a pigskin ball!"
I wonder if that song is still in
the Syracuse repertoire.
This year I hope to com-
bine football with Tolstoy. For
years I've griped about the TV
commercials that flood each
football game. Some of these
sales pitches last four or five
minutes at a time. I've finally
gotten wise.
Beginning in September,
when the first football games
begin, I will be armed with
two weapons: my TV remote
(to silence the noisy lies that


the commercials are filled
with) and a copy of "War and
Peace." I've always wanted to
read that massive novel. I fig-
ure that by reading a page or
two during each commercial
break I will have completed
the first half before Christ-
mas.
One of the NFL's spotlight
players this year will be Den-
ver Broncos rookie quarter-
back Tim Tebow. He set all
kinds of records during his
four years at the University of
Florida, and will be expected
to shine as a pro player. How-
ever, some experts have
warned Tebow's fans not to
assume that he'll be spectac-
ular from the starting gate.
Pro football has a way of dim-
ming the dazzle that many
college standouts bring with
them.
I'll be rooting for Tebow to
succeed, but not because of
his football prowess. I like the
way he has conducted him-
self as a young man with
strong religious beliefs. Cyn-
ics have questioned his sin-
cerity and have waited for
him to stub his toe, but thus
far Tebow appears to be the
real ticket. Pro sports, which
is crawling with drunks,
bums and braggarts, needs
as many Tim Tebows as it
can get.
I'll also be rooting for the
Buccaneers. They deserve all
the support they can get. One
reason I sympathize with
them is that ugly stadium
they are forced to play in. It
may be aesthetically pleasing
from the inside, but each
time I drive past it on Dale
Mabry Highway it reminds
me of something that a not-
very-talented child with an
erector set threw together in
half an hour. While in the
dark.

Friszolowski comments
no major surprise
Editor:
It's no surprise that Ward Friszolowski is speaking out
against Florida Hometown Democracy Amendment 4, as he did
in Bob McClure's July 6 story.
These politicians will say anything to keep regular people
from getting a say in all their dealings. I support Hometown
Democracy Amendment 4, and I'll tell you why. Our homes and
communities are too important to leave in the hands of politi-
cians and lobbyists. Since we taxpayers pay the cost of these
speculative real estate ventures that politicians keep approving
- the roads, schools, sewer, water, etc. we should get a vote.
Amendment 4 is a common-sense reform that will add ac-
countability to a political system that's gotten unbelievably cor-
rupt and out of control. It is not the same process that was
tried in St. Pete Beach.
The fat cats will make all kinds of claims to get you to deny
yourself the right to vote. We don't have their kind of money and
spin, but we do have the right to stand up and be counted by
voting yes on Amendment 4 on the statewide ballot on Nov. 2.
Hometown Democracy is a nonpartisan, truly grassroots citi-
zen's movement, and you can learn more by going to our Web
site www.floridahometowndemocracy.com

Committee July 8 with a proclamation in his honor issued by
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning. Receiving the proclama-
tion was Charlie's wife Jan, and three of his five sons. Charles
was able to watch from his home.
To say that Charlie knew everyone is an understatement. He
was close friends with all who knew him, and as a friend, Char-
lie would do anything for you. His contacts in the political
arena were wide, and he was especially proud of his friendship
with Congressman Bill Young. Charlie worked on many a politi-
cal campaign from local elections all the way to Washington.
Charles H. Weisgerber, his grandfather, was an artist who
painted the famous picture of Betsy Ross presenting the first
U.S. flag to President Washington (this picture was recently
printed in USA Today, on the Fourth of July edition).
Charles worked tirelessly to make sure that this famous pic-
ture received proper attention, and his success led to having
the picture hang in the State Museum of Pennsylvania.
Charlie loved the American flag, and distressed that there
were no flags to fly in Treasure Island, he saw to it that the city
received the flags and the proper holders to display Old Glory
on all our patriotic holidays.
Charlie loved Canadians too. He was responsible for the
community involvement in Canadian/American Week, which
has been held in Treasure Island for the past 10 years. David
Chubb, a high school band director, started bringing his stu-
dents to visit Florida, and specifically Treasure Island, because
he fell in love with Treasure Island as a child traveling with his
parents from Niagara Falls to the warm sunny beaches. This
trip, which has evolved over the years, is held over Canadian
Thanksgiving week, which coincides with our Columbus Day in
October. Last year, two bands visited, along with Niagara Falls
Mayor Ted Salci, and Rob Nicholson, the Attorney General of
Canada.
He broke the news to all of his friends last year, that through
a check up, his doctor had discovered lung cancer.
Charlie went all around town, with his usual vigor, providing
details of the disease, and even organized an event at his home
to stress to us all the importance of early screening. Aaron
Fodiman, publisher of Tampa Bay Magazine, was there, as well
as Ambassador and Mrs. Mel Sembler. Charlie had lost his first
wife to cancer.
Sadly, on early Wednesday morning, July 21, Charlie left us.
Jan said he died peacefully, with her and his sons at his side.
Charlie was our patriot.

feelings I was trying to over-
come. Hints of anger that she
couldn't have chosen to better
herself like this before and
save me all that hurt. Jeal-
ousy that someone else has
taken over my former role in
her life and then guilt be-
cause I can't want that now,
anyway. But maybe those
aren't bad things. After all, I
keep them to manageable lev-
els. Even superheroes are just
human when they take off the
cape. Superman is Clark
Kent. Batman is Bruce
Wayne. Spiderman is Peter
Parker. Batwoman is Kate
Kane. They're not perfect, ei-
ther.
Perhaps the hardest part
isn't even being that good per-
son who I want to be. No, it's
making sure I don't go too far
- remembering that part of
my superhero strength has to
be in holding myself back at a
safe distance. Though she ac-
tually is beginning to consider
changing the underlying root


of her destructive behavior,
she's not there yet. Even if
things could be like they were
before, I can't allow that to
happen. I can't allow myself
to want that, either. Certainly
not until she fixes herself and
can be trusted again.
It's hard not to be reckless
in my emotions. Because de-
spite the twinges of jealousy
and sadness, I really do for-
give her. I really do want to be
her friend again. I really do
want her to find happiness. I
really do want to trust her
again and see all the good
that I know is inside her. But
like any good hero, I have a
fatal flaw. I know that some-
times I end up caring too
much, making me blind to
everything else.
Maybe the true test of a su-
perhero is to find a healthy
balance to fight to acquire
those superhuman character-
istics but then to be the best
person you can be without
losing yourself in the process.

Treasure Island public hearing proves to be a moot point


By BOB McCLURE
TREASURE ISLAND A lengthy public
discussion on a proposed land use change
on Sunset Beach turned out to be a moot
point July 20 at City Hall.
For more than two hours, the City Com-
mission heard testimony during a public
hearing on a proposed ordinance that
would change the zoning of a small vacant
lot from residential medium to commercial
general.
Tony Amico, owner of Caddy's on the
Beach, was proposing the change for a
1/4-acre parking lot that he owns south of
Ka'Tiki at 8701 W. Gulf Blvd.
After residents of Sunset Beach and
commissioners expressed concern over the
change, Amico caught most everyone by
surprise when he withdrew his petition.
"That came out of left field," said Mayor
Bob Minning. "I never expected that."
Amico, who has cooperated with city of-


ficials on a variety of levels when it comes
to complaints about rowdiness on Sunset
Beach, was frustrated with the proceed-
ings.
"I'll just wait and see what happens with
the city's new parking rules," Amico said.
"Is it frustrating? Yes. It (the vacant lot) is
a commercial piece of property since 1951.
I don't think I'm in violation."
City leaders will soon consider a recom-
mendation from the Planning and Zoning
Board to allow commercial parking in
most zoning districts.
If that fails to get Commission approval,
Amico said he would petition the city for a
zoning change at the site to resort facilities
medium status, which would allow park-
ing.
The site was formerly the location of a
motel that was built in 1951 and demol-
ished in 2005. The lot was earlier ap-
proved by the city for a 4-unit, 2-story
residential structure but the land never

sold because of its small size, said archi-
tect Jack Bodziak, who was representing
Amico at the hearing.
After the motel was demolished, a tem-
porary permit was issued to Amico allow-
ing him to use the site as a parking lot.
However, because of its residential-medi-
um status, parking on the site became ille-
gal when the permit ran out in 2007.
That's why Amico was seeking to change
the zoning to commercial general, which
would allow him to use the lot legally for
valet parking.
Residents in the area didn't like the idea
and expressed concern that a change in
land use might result in the construction
of a multi-story parking garage or possibly
a hotel.
"How can you limit it to just a parking
lot once the zoning is changed?" asked
Commissioner Alan Bildz.
City Planner Lynn Rosetti had no defini-
tive answer.
"I'm not going to vote to change it to
(commercial general)," said Commissioner
Phil Collins. "I would not be opposed to
leaving it (residential medium) with the
stipulation that Mr. Amico can still park
cars there perhaps for 24 months."
"I'm opposed to it," said Sunset Beach
resident Chris Sierra. "It's not a parking


issue. It's a question of whether you're re-
zoning from residential to commercial gen-
eral. It would be a huge encroachment on
our neighborhood and I urge you not to
pass this."
"We need that parking lot," said LeeAnn
Bakos, also a Sunset Beach resident. "Why
can't we permit it for parking and not
change the zoning? I'm worried that down
the road, whenever (the property is sold) it
could become another tiki bar."
After conferring with Bodziak, Amico pe-
titioned to withdraw his request and reap-
ply for a land use status that would allow
him to use the lot for parking.
"I don't need (commercial general)," said
Amico. "I have no plans for a hotel. My in-
tent is service level parking only."
City Attorney Maura Kiefer explained
that the same process (an ordinance with
two public hearings) would also be neces-
sary for a change to resort facility medium.
"Can we maintain the parking with an
(RFM-30) zoning?" asked Collins. "He
(Amico) is trying to do what's a fair thing
and the people of Sunset Beach are watch-
ing out for their concerns."
Minutes later Amico approached the
podium and said he was withdrawing his
request altogether for a zoning change.
"It's very frustrating," Amico said.

'Charlie St. Cloud'
Genre: Drama and romance
Cast: Zac Efron, Charlie Tahan, Kim Basinger, Amanda Crew,
Augustus Prew and Donal Logue
Director: Burr Steers
Rated: PG-13
Accomplished high-school sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Zac Efron)
has the adoration of single mother Claire and little brother Sam
(Charlie Tahan), as well as a scholarship to Stanford that will
lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown.
But Charlie's bright future is cut short when tragedy strikes
and takes his dreams with it.
During a car accident, the brothers reach out to one another
when it looks as if they are about to die. In that moment, Char-
lie swears to Sam that he will never leave him. But abruptly,
Charlie is revived by the intervention of determined paramedic
Florio Ferrente (Ray Liotta). Sam, tragically, could not be saved.
Charlie is inconsolable. During his little brother's funeral, he
runs from the grave site into the forest behind the cemetery,
stumbling upon a small clearing just as day is drawing to a
close. In the distance, he hears the sunset cannons sound.

Dazed, Charlie looks up and is stunned to see Sam, baseball
glove in hand, waiting for him to begin the ball practice that is a
part of their evening ritual.
Five years go by and Charlie's life has taken a different path
than the one about which he dreamed. He's now the caretaker
of Seaside Cemetery where Sam is buried, and his sailboat is
stored away on blocks. College, friends and family have been
abandoned. Every evening at the gloaming hour, just as the
cannons sound, Charlie returns to the glade to play catch with
Sam. At sunset, Sam vanishes again. Though his brother wants
him to move on, Charlie's promise to Sam is all that matters
anymore.
When his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns
home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring the
promise he made years earlier and moving forward with new-
found love.

'Dinner for Schmucks'

anakis and Stephanie Szostak

a private equity firm, Fender Financial, his business acumen
has been noticed by the head of the company, Lance Fender
(Bruce Greenwood), who's about ready to kick Tim upstairs ...

but first, he's got to attend the upcoming
monthly dinner at Fender's imposing man-
sion.
Well, it's not so much the meal that will de-
termine his career trajectory it's his choice
of dinner guest.
Turns out, Fender and friends gather to
dine and bask in the company of extraordi-
nary people those charmed individuals who
are born thinking 'outside of the box.' These
men and women dwell on the fringes of soci-
ety, placed there as a result of their unique-
ness.
In short, Fender asks each colleague to
bring an idiot to dinner.
At first, Conrad's conscience kicks in. But
just as he's about to bag the whole banquet,
he discovers IRS employee Barry Speck
(Steve Carell), who steps in front of Tim's
sports car ... and gets hit. An amateur taxi-
dermist, Barry gives dead mice a second life,
by using his taxidermy skills on them and
dressing them in tiny human outfits, and fi-
nally placing them in miniature scenarios,
based on works of art, milestones of history
or even his life, as he would wish it.
Tim cannot resist such a specimen as
Barry and he winds up inviting him to join
the roster of Fender's dinner party guests.
But Barry, on the other hand, sees Tim as
more than the driver of the vehicle that could


have killed him, he considers him his new
best friend, and soon, the drone accountant's
bumbling good intentions set off a tornado of
destruction in Tim's near-perfect life torpe-
doing a multimillion-dollar deal and Tim's ro-
mance with Julie all in less than 24 hours.
Thanks to Barry, Tim's bright and promising
future is rendered a dismal and painful pre-
sent.
Okay, but, tabling all of that for the mo-
ment ... is dinner still on?

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

'The Concert'
Genre: Foreign, comedy, drama and musi-
cal arts
Cast: Miou-Miou, Francois Berleand,
Melanie Laurent, Dmitry Nazarov and Aleksei
Guskov
Director: Radu Mihaileanu
Not rated
Andre' Filipov was a prodigy the celebrat-
ed conductor of the Bolshoi Orchestra, the
greatest orchestra in Russia. Today, aged 50,
he still works at the Bolshoi, but as a cleaner.
During the communist era, he was fired at
the height of his fame for refusing to get rid of
all his Jewish Players Zionists and enemies
of the People including his best friend
Sacha Grossman. AndreY sank into booze


and depression.
The director of the Bolshoi, an old appa-
ratchik, has been promising forever to return
Andrel's orchestra to him "soon," but he's
mocking him, humiliating him sadistically.
For him, Andrel's a has-been, and he's
doing him a big favor by keeping him on as a
cleaner.
Then AndreY finds a fax inviting the or-
chestra to play at Pleyel, in Paris, in two
weeks' time, as a last minute replacement for
the indisposed San Francisco Philharmonic.
AndreY conceives of a crazy notion: he'll
round up his old musician buddies, a motley
bunch now scraping a living in Moscow as
cab drivers, removal men, flea market
traders, suppliers of porno film sound effects

They'll go to Paris as the Bolshoi. They'll
defy destiny and take their revenge! Will they
make it?


'The Extra Man'
Genre: Comedy and adaptation
Cast: Kevin Kline, Paul Dano, Katie
Holmes and John C. Reilly
Director: Shari Springer Berman and
Robert Pulcini
Not rated
A sophisticated and moving comedy, "The
Extra Man" follows Louis Ives (Paul Dano), a
lonely dreamer who fancies himself the hero
of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
When a deeply embarrassing incident
forces him to leave his job at an exclusive
Princeton prep school, Louis heads to New
York City to make a fresh start.
He quickly finds a nine-to-five job at an
environmental magazine, where he encoun-
ters an entrancing, green-obsessed co-work-
er Mary (Katie Holmes).
But it's Louis' new home life that really
sparks his imagination.

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
You're on the move
this week, Capricorn,
and everyone better get
out of your way. You've
got lots to do and little
time to do it in. An old
friend helps.
Aquarius
January 20 February 18
Now is not the time to
get caught up in little dif-
ferences. Respect the
views of others and work
together for a cause.
Fame is not what it is
cracked up to be, Aquar-
ius.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
Doggone it, Pisces. For
every step you move for-
ward you seem to take
two steps backward.
Don't let it get to you.
You are making progress.
Aries
March 21 April 19
Make up, Aries. Don't
break up. This is not a
relationship to sever. A
whirl in the kitchen
brings surprising results.
Who knew you were such
a good cook.
Taurus
April 20 May 20
Affairs of the heart
take center stage this
week, and bonds grow
stronger. The opportunity
to travel afar and experi-
ence new things beckons.
Go, Taurus.
Gemini
May 21 June 21
It's not just what you
know but whom you
know that often leads to
success. Keep that in
mind, Gemini, and don't
be afraid to call in some
favors.


Cancer
June 22 July 22
Goodness sake, Can-
cer. You are in demand
this week, both personal-
ly and professionally.
Keep a tight rein on your
schedule. There is no
need for you to wear
yourself out.
Leo
July 23 August 22
An invitation arrives in
the mail. Think it over,
Leo. You might have a
better time than you
think. A charitable cause
requires your talents and
skills.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
Focus, Virgo. Banish
the restlessness. A weak
link is discovered in a
project and you must
work hard to fix it. The
mood lifts at home.
Libra
September 23 October 22
Joy, Libra. Someone
from your past returns to
stir up trouble. Thwart
their plans. A little wind-
fall erases all budgetary
concerns. Put some away
for a rainy day.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
Just when you
thought life couldn't get
any better, it does. Enjoy
your newfound success.
A promotion could be on
the horizon, Scorpio.
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You can make plans all
you want, Sagittarius,
but you should be pre-
pared for them to be dis-
mantled. Not all will go
accordingly. Have some
backup plans.

Volleyball standouts


From left, Trevor Kennan of Redington Beach, Tony Tonova
of Largo and Garrett Peterson of Largo, all 10 years old,
have been winning two-man beach volleyball tournaments
throughout the summer. The group's third win in a row
came recently when Kennan and Peterson combined to
win the USAV Dig The Beach series at Clearwater Beach,
playing against some of the state's top 12-and-under teams.
Tonova often alternates with Kennan.


Italy-bound


Luke Travis of Redington Shores, left, and Obie Johnson of Indian Shores, second from right,
were selected during the recent AC Milan Junior Soccer Camp in Seminole to attend a three-
day soccer event in Italy where they will be honored at an AC Milan game with other players
from around the world. Standing with them are AC Milan players Emilio Fontana, second
from left, and Gianni Santone, right, who conducted the soccer camp that was sponsored by
the Gulf Coast United Soccer Club.

Small pilchards are abundant


Gardeners, gardens feel the heat


Small fry bait is well on its way to being an
every situation option.
What was considered to be too small to use
a couple of weeks ago, the tiny pilchards have
grown up just enough to be cast out under-
neath a
floatished o Fish Tales
fished on
the bottom Capt. Tyson
with a small Wallerstein
sinker.
Make sure
that you
use a quarter inch mesh cast net for these lit-
tle guy's or you'll have quite a mess on your
hands.
These baits may seem too small to be ap-
pealing to larger game fish like trout, snook
and reds, but think again; remember, fishing
is a game of matching the hatch. So it's time
to shrink your hooks and possibly your lead-
ers and take advantage of what Mother Nature
has given us to work with.
Spanish mackerel are filling in good along
area beaches. Schools of macks can be seen
busting bait just outside the swim buoys. Cast
small Gotcha plugs from shore right into the
same area where the mackerel were spotted.
Live baiters will be able to chum the mackerel
into a frenzy by tossing out handfuls of live
pilchards.
Catch and release snook fishing has been


pretty good on the afternoon outgoing tides.
Passes and nearby beaches have been the
places to target. East winds have allowed for
good sight casting opportunities right along
the beach.
Savvy anglers know just how spooky the
snook can be in the clear shallows only a cou-
ple of feet off the beach. Long casts and low
profile are often needed to convince the snook
into eating.
Cast small twitch baits like Mirro-Lures or
Sebile's to approaching snook on the beach
and free line live pinfish and grunts with the
tide to get hooked up in the passes.
Tarpon fishing along the beach slowed
down quite a bit this past week. We should
begin to start seeing a few more fish as we get
a little further away from the full moon. Target
jetties and deeper areas right along the beach
that are holding schools of threadfins. On
those flat calm mornings the tarpon can be
seen rolling around the schools of bait. Often
times drifting through an area that is holding
fish can be more productive than casting.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish
photo in the paper, send the photo along
with your name, when and where it was
caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail
it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Semi-
nole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

The most important re-
sponsibility for gardeners
these days is to hydrate
yourself and your plants.
Somehow the plants are
holding up in this outdoor
sauna. Wish I could say the
same for the people work-
ing outside during the day.
The rain has been more
frequent than in past years;
good for the aquifer, bad for
lawn mowers.
Every week, if not more
often, the grass needs
mowing. So far, the chinch
bugs have not been evident.
A good way to identify the
problem is when you notice
a small area of dead grass
one day and then the circle
enlarges.
They are dark bugs,
nearly black, with a white
dot on their back. They
also stink when squished.
If you want to eradicate
them, call Pinellas County
Extension or check with a
garden center for the latest
method. Since I prefer not
to use the chemicals, I re-
place the grass when
they've finished their meal.
The grasshopper lubbers
are huge now and are
chewing holes in the
leaves. I know it's gross,
but I grab them, throw
them to the ground and
step on them. Since they
pinch when they're this
large, use gloves. Their off-
spring will appear again in
three weeks, so go get

them.
Gardeners need to get
out to prune, prune, prune
shrubs. This is high-growth
time, so even minor correc-
tive pruning can be done
now and new growth will
cover holes quickly.
A shrub or hedge must
be fatter at the bottom than
the top. If not, light will not
reach the lower branches
that will cause leggy, leaf-
less sticks at the bottom.
Vegetable growers are
starting to work their plots


now. A good way to control
nematodes and weed seeds
in the planting bed is to so-
larize the soil.
Put in manure and/or
compost, dampen the soil
and cover with clear, heavy
mil plastic. Be sure the
plastic is tucked tight
under a soil trench. The ob-
jective is to get the temper-
ature high enough to
sterilize the soil.
This process doesn't have
to be done every year, but it
doesn't hurt. In a month, it
can be removed, or wait
until Oct. 1 when it's time
to plant the veggies.
At the rate our summer
temperatures are going, it
won't take long to heat the
soil.

Recently, I have received a
lot of questions about long-
term care. The main ques-
tions are what is it and who
pays for it?
Long-term care is assis-
tance for months or years
with basic activities of daily
living like bathing, dressing,
or getting in and out of a
bed. Unlike medical care,
which is designed to get you
back to the way you were be-
fore you became sick or in-
jured, the purpose of
long-term care is custodial -
that is, to keep you safe and
comfortable for your period
of incapacity.
Either you pay, the gov-
ernment pays, or an insur-
ance company pays. Most
long-term care is delivered
by families for each other at
home, perhaps with some
paid help, depending on fam-
ily financial resources. When
the family becomes emotion-
ally and physically exhaust-
ed, the family may decide to
place the loved one in a
nursing home, or other type
of care facility. There they
continue to pay until they

become financially exhaust-
ed, at which time the govern-
ment may begin to pay, but
not with Medicare, a form of
health insurance; rather it is
paid with a welfare program
called Medicaid. Private
health insurance does not
pay for long-term care either,
because the purpose of the
care is not to cure or restore,
but to provide custodial care.
Long-term care insurance, on
the other hand is designed to
pay for custodial care. Long-
term care insurance will pay
for facility care, but it is more
commonly used to pay for
professional caregivers at
home. That helps the family
to keep a loved one at home
for a longer period of time
and with less stress.
There are several types of
long-term care services, de-
pending upon the level of in-
dependence:
Assisted living: Provides
help with bathing and dress-
ing, medication reminders,
and light housekeeping. It's
designed to assist those with
minimal needs to remain as


independent as possible.
Adult daycare: For those
who want to remain at home,
but need help with activities
of daily living while a caretak-
er is at work, adult daycare
can be a good solution. Meals
and some medical monitoring
services are usually included,
and transportation may also
be available.
Home care: This can in-
clude companions to assist
with housekeeping, cooking,
and shopping. It also can in-
clude medical care provided
by registered or licensed
practical nurses. Home care
can be part-time or full-time,
depending on needs.
Nursing home: Mostly for
those who need more inten-
sive medical care, such as
wound care, rehabilitation, or
help with respirators or venti-
lators. Nursing home care
may be temporary (recovering
from surgery or an injury), or
permanent (end-of-life ser-
vices).
According to the United
States Department of Health
and Human Services-Nation-
al Clearinghouse for Long-
Term Care Information, the
costs of long-term care may
vary by region. The average
costs in the United States in
2009 for various types of
long-term care are shown

The big question and the
dilemma for most families is,
"can we realistically preserve
our retirement assets and
income while covering long-
term care costs?" As dis-
cussed above either you
pay, the government pays,
or an insurance company
pays.
If you plan to pay from
personal savings, this means
that you'll need to estimate
the future costs of long-term
care and set aside enough
money to cover those costs.
If you prefer to purchase
long-term care insurance
you can elect traditional
long-term care insurance,
which works much like car
insurance with ongoing pre-
miums, or you can elect to
purchase a life insurance or
annuity asset based on long-
term care policy with cash or
possibly by exchanging an
old life or annuity policy.
Each has advantages and
disadvantages. If you have
questions about long-term
care, please don't hesitate to
call.

At BR we have taken full responsibility tor the cleanup in the Gult. We are
committed to keeping you informed.

Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a
Shore Cleanup Assessment Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanup begins
immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from 17 staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people
are involved in the cleanup operation.

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a
team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the
size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds,
and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the
Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has
been removed. As a result, in most cases when oil reaches a beach, it is
even possible to keep it open.

Our Responsibility
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has
been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned
up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs
of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not
always be perfect, but we will make this right.


For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
