SEMINOLE The City Council voted 4-1 during a
July 27 workshop to move fonvard on a possible three-
year contract extension for City Manager Frank Ed-
munds.
Terms are expected to be discussed formally at the
Aug. 10 City Council meeting.
The issue came up recently during a City Council
workshop on Edmunds' annual performance evaluation
when Councilor Bob Matthews suggested extending the
contract three years.
Edmunds, in his 15th year as city manager, is under
contract through 2013. A contract extension would


carry him through 2016 and his 65th birthday.
Councilors Matthews, Thomas Bamnhomn, Leslie Wa-
ters and Mayor Jimmy Johnson voted for the exten-
sion. Councilor Patricia Plantamura voted against it.
Councilors John Counts and Jim Quinn were absent.
"(Edmunds') service has been excellent and I recom-
mend we extend his contract to 2016," said Matthews.
"T~here would be no cost to make this decision. It's just
a move so he's comfortable and doesn't leave for green-
er pastures."
Waters said she would ordinarily not support an ex-
tension until the final year of a contract.
"But under the economic times, the strong financial
position Seminole is in is because of Frank Edmunds'


leadership," said Waters. "It pains me to be discussing
this but in a 11 good conscience I would agree to extend
the contract from 2013 to 2016."
Barnhorn brought up the possibility of Edmunds'
duties diminishing and said Edmunds' salary should
diminish at the same percentage.
"Whhat happens if (county) fire consolidation takes
place or we're hit by the perfect storm and the scope
and size of (Edmunds') duties change?" Barnhorn
asked. "I think he should take a cut in pay equal to the
decrease in the amount of his duties. I say make modi-
fications with safeguards for the city."

es," said Meehan. "I was originally think-
ing about having it outside before I spoke
to (Seminole community development di-
rector) Mark Ely who suggested having it
inside. The vendors liked the idea of mul-
tiple days and most liked the idea of 9
a.m. to 3 p.m."
Meehan said he has an ongoing lease
with the mall that features the option to
continue or discontinue the event, de-
pending on the circumstances.
"If things go well, we'll continue to
keep it going," he said.
In addition to the vendors and music
indoors, Meehan has received a pair of
30-day permits that will allow area
restaurants to prepare food outside of
the mall in tents that will be visible from


SEMINOLE The aging Seminole Mall
will get a shot in the arm this weekend
when Fresh Markets and More opens on
Saturday, Aug. 7.
The event, which will offer a variety of
produce and specialty foods, will be open
year-round after this weekend Thursday
to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., inside the
mall.
Amenities this weekend will include
music on Saturday by Taboo and other
groups on Sunday inside the food court
at the mall.
The event is being organized by Scott
Meehan, who stages the annual Taste of
Seminole, Taste of Largo and the Tarpon
Springs Intemnational Food Festival.
"I think it's going to work well," said
Meehan. "It's so unique because it's four
days and it's air-conditioned inside. This
is something we're doing for Seminole
and hopefully we'll get a good group to
come out and support it."
Other area fresh markets are one or
two days and held outside. Others are
like a flea market, which Meehan avoid-
ed with the Seminole event.

As you read today's paper, you might have no-
ticed a "big" change to your Seminole and Beach
Beacons.
Like most businesses across the country, Tampa
Bay Newspapers has been challenged to improve
the efficiency of our day-to-day operations. The
mistake that many make is to allow these "im-
provements" to negatively impact the quality and
integrity of their business operation. That simply
would not be acceptable here.


In this time when reduce, cut back and lay off
seem to be the actions of choice, Tampa Bay News-
papers has had the rare opportunity to offer "more
for less." In moving from a tabloid to a broadsheet
newspaper, we doubled our full color capability and
have even more space available for news and pho-
tos. Additionally, it allows us to provide affordable
advertising rates, which in turn helps maintain a
solid clientele base.
What does that mean to you? It enables us to de-
liver to you free one of the best community weekly
newspapers in Florida. This is what you can truly


call a "win win" situation for readers, advertisers
and the employees of Tampa Bay Newspapers.
We understand that some of you might prefer the
smaller size paper, but ask you to keep an open
mind. We will still bring you the same award-win-
ning news, photos and features that you have al-
ways received just more of it! Let me know what
you think by sending your thoughts by e-mail to
dautrey@TBNweekly.com.
Oh, and if you really like getting your hometown
newspaper free each week, thank (and patronize)
our advertisers.

It's complicated. Yet, the concept is simple: Contract with the
nearest provider for fire and first responder services in unincorpo-
rated areas of Pinellas County.
The problem is cost personnel cost mainly.
Pinellas County commissioners gave staff a directive on May 4, to
"wire brush" the fire and EMS budgets to identify potential savings
while maintaining performance standards.
For the past several years, the county's EMS department has
been decreasing its spending and deferring expenses, said Craig
Hare, county EMS coordinator. During the "good years," money was
put into reserve accounts.
"So, we were able to live off our savings," Hare said.
To balance the EMS budget without depleting the reserves, coun-
ty staff is recommending a millage rate increase of .1028 from
.5832 to .6860. The increase would mean an additional $10.64 a
year in taxes for a single-family residential property with a taxable
value of $103,490, the average in Pinellas County.
The tax increase would bring in $5 million to $6 million to fund
essential services, Hare said.
Currently, a $13.8 million gap exists between projected revenues
and expenses. The proposed plan to balance the budget includes an
increase in user fees estimated to bring in $1.4 million, an increase
in the millage to bring in $5.2 million and decreasing reserves by
$7.2 million.
The EMS reserve account currently has $7.7 million.
County commissioners asked staff to look for ways to either
negate the millage rate increase entirely or lessen the amount. The
only proposed countywide millage increase for fiscal year 2011 is for
EMS.
Staff presented several ideas, totaling to $1.8 million during the
July 27 commission meeting. The money would come from reserve
accounts, elimination of two paramedic positions and elimination of
funding for Bayflite.
Assistant County Administrator James Dates said by using re-
serves, currently held by the contractors, $579,229 could be added
back into the EMS budget. Reserve money is intended for use by
the contractors to buy replacement vehicles and equipment.

Rescue 19 and Engine 16
One controversial idea would change first responder staffing for
the Lealman, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg and Seminole response
zones. The zones are part of the jurisdictional responses for Leal-

man and Pinellas Park.
The change involves Station 19 in Lealman, which currently has
three county-paid paramedic positions, Station 16 in Kenneth City,
which has no county-paid employees, and Station 18, which has
one county-funded paramedic position.
The idea is to eliminate funding for Rescue Unit 19 and its two
paramedics at Station 19. Engine 19 with one county-funded
paramedic would take over first responder duties.
The county proposes to fund one paramedic position for Engine
16 at Station 16 in Kenneth City. Kenneth City has contracted with
the city of Pinellas Park to provide fire service. Pinellas Park would
be responsible for providing the two firefighters required for Engine
16.
Staffing for Engine 18 would remain the same with one county-
funded paramedic and two firefighters paid by the Lealman Fire
District.
Hare said the change would allow all three stations to have one
county-funded paramedic position. He said response times would
remain within the county standard of 7 1/2 minutes 90 percent of
the time. Station 19 and Station 16 are located about one mile
apart.
Response times for residents, who live farthest from Station 19 or
any fire station, could see response times of one to two minutes
more than people who live closer, Hare said.
A study shows using three paramedic-fire responders from three
stations would maintain or improve response time and level of serv-
ice, Dates said.
Lealman would lose two continually staffed paramedic positions
at a savings of $860,000. Pinellas Park would gain one paramedic
position at a cost of $409,000. The savings to the EMS budget
would be $451,000.
Several commissioners, as well as members of the Lealman Fire
District and several area residents, objected to the elimination of
Rescue 10. The primary concern was an increase in response time
to residents living in the western part of the Lealman Fire District.
Commissioner Calvin Harris said changing the response time
"scares me. Adding a minute to someone having a stroke or heart
attack can be a long time.
Officials from the Lealman Fire District voiced the most concern.
Chairwoman Rebecca Harriman said the change would mean tax-
payers in the Lealman Fire District would have to pay more. She
said the population was made up of low-income residents.
"There's no way we can afford this," she said.

Squad 26
Staff also proposed eliminating funding for one paramedic position
for Squad 26 run by Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue.
In 2010, the county eliminated funding for one of two paramedics
with PSF&rRD. If commissioners approve this latest plan, the second
position would be eliminated in fiscal year 2011.
The change would save another $484,750 for the EMS budget.
According to the plan presented by staff on July 27, Seminole and


Madeira Beach would provide first responder services for Indian
Shores, Redington Beach, North Redington Beach and Redington
Shores. The towns currently contract fire protection service with
Seminole and Madeira Beach.
Dates said initial response from beach towns had been favorable.
He said Paramedics Plus would post an ambulance in the area to
supplement coverage.

Bayflite
Pinellas County has funded Bayflite since 2004 to help offset the
cost of transporting uninsured individuals to a trauma center. Pinel-
las is the only county in Tampa Bay that provides such funding.
Staff recommends cutting funding to Bayflite for a savings of
$312,500 for one-half year. The contract requires six-month notifi-
cation for cancellation without cause.
Harris did not favor the proposal.
"I don't like this either," he said.
Commissioner Ken Welch agreed, as did Commission Chair Karen
Seel.
"I'm shocked to even have this put on the table," Seel said.
Bob Thornton, chief financial officer from Bayfront Medical Cen-
ter, which operates Pinellas County's only trauma center, said the
money it receives for services from private insurance companies and
funding from Pinellas County currently funds Bayflite.
He said the medical center considered Bayflite as "part of the
whole" and received no government funding except from Pinellas
County.
"Wer come when the call comes in and we transport regardless of
ability to pay," Thornton said.
He said Bayflite was a "critical partner to the EMS system." He
also said the contract with Pinellas County was "integral to the suc-
cess" of the program.
He blamed the situation on the economy and spoke of Bayfront's
commitment to Pinellas County.
"Regardless of hard times, it's our mission to serve," he said.
"We're calling on your commitment. Reducing or elimination of
Bayflite would hurt the people of today and in the future."
No decision
The Board of Pinellas County Commissioners serves as the Emer-
gency Medical Services Authority and by charter is responsible to
make the final decision.
However, County administrator Bob LaSala told the commission-
ers not to make any decisions on July 27. He asked them to consid-
er the "bigger view" and to "ponder it for the next six to seven
weeks."
Harris said he was reluctant to "experiment with response times.
We run the risk to have real heartbreak."
Officials are currently waiting on the results of a study before
making any long-term or wide-reaching changes to the system.
"Whe'll do what we need to do," Welch said, adding that more diffi-
cult decisions would be necessary.

ReMOurishment set

A group of pipes stands ready on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island near 77th Avenue for a beach
Renourishment project by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that began Aug. 2. The $5.2 million
Project will renourish three beaches from Treasure Island to St. Pete Beach. The first phase will be
Sunshine Beach from 127th to 120th avenues and then Sunset Beach from 88th to 77th avenues.
Beginning in October, sand dredged from Blind Pass will be placed on Upham Beach on the north end
of St. Pete Beach from 71st Avenue south to 58th Avenue. Work to renourish each beach takes about
five weeks.


Plantamura said she supports
Edmunds but isn't in favor of a
contract extension.
"I'm glad the public is stepping
up and saying what they feel,"
Plantamura said. "I agree with
the residents that believe there is
no reason for a hurry to extend
the contract. With the future
economy uncertain, I believe it's
not a good idea to extend it past
2013.

DEP funds continue to



flow into Lake Seminole


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners
expressed frustration July 27 over continued spend-
ing to keep Lake Seminole up to required standards.
At the end of the day, the commissioners had ap-
proved action on lake projects totaling more than
$30 million
Penny for Pinellas dollars, as well as federal and
state funding and money from the Southwest Flori-
da Water Management District, will pay for the proj-
ects.
The commissioners unanimously approved an
$800,000 grant agreement with the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection to be used toward
the estimated construction costs of $2.56 million for
two regional alum stormwater treatment facilities
within sub Basins 2 and 7 of the Lake Seminole
Watershed.
The management plan calls for construction of six
regional alum treatment facilities. Two facilities are
currently under construction and the bypass canal.
the third system, is scheduled to go out for bid this
fall. The fourth system is scheduled for bid in 2011.
The final two, sub Basins 2 and 7, are scheduled
to go out for bid in 2012.
The purpose of the facilities is to remove 50 per-
cent of the phosphorous entering Lake Seminole
from the 4,100-acre urban watershed and to im-
prove circulation in the lake.
According to staff notes, the project is "critical to
restoring water quality and beneficial aquatic habi-
tat in Lake Seminole.
The project also is a key component of a 2007
federal and state approved plan and should help
meet mandated Total Maxcimum Daily Load require-
ments.
Design, permitting and construction of the six fa-
cilities cost almost $11 million.
Estimated annual operations and maintenance
cost is almost $500,000. The cost will be split be-
tween Pinellas County, 48 percent; city of Largo. 37
percent; city of Seminole, 13 percent; and the Flori-
da Department ofTransportation, 2 percent.
The commissioners also approved the ranking of
firms and authorized staff to begin negotiations with
the No. 1 ranked firm, BCI Engineers &r Scientists
Inc., Lakeland, for the Lake Seminole sediment re-
moval project. Commissioner Neil Brickfield voted
no.
The estimated price tag for the project is $16.7

BCI wil be responsible for Phase 1 of the project:
environmental data collection, survey, design and
permitting with an estimated cost of $700,000.
Phase 1 is expected to take 24 months.
Estimated cost for Phase 2 is $16 million and in-
cludes the actual construction and dredging. Phase
2 is expected to take 30 months and has a sched-
uled completion date of Dec. 31, 2016.
The commissioners approved a cooperative fund-
ing agreement with the Southwest Florida Water
Management District to pay half of the cost of Phas-
es 1 and 2.
"This is a tremendous amount of money for a lake
that's not really a lake," Brickfield said.
"T~his is one of those very frustrating things we
deal with on a daily basis," said Commissioner
Susan Latvala.
Latvala was speaking of decisions made in the
past that create problems for the future.
"lt's insane," she said. "Future commissioners will
be dealing with this forever."


History of Lake Seminole
On July 3, 1945, Pinellas County commissioners
passed a resolution to create a freshwater lake in
conjunction with the planned construction of Park
Boulevard and a causeway across Long Bayou.
The freshwater lake also would provide a source
of irrigation for citrus groves and augment drinking
water supplies.
The lake was built on an arm of Long Bayou, a
brackish water segment of Boca Ciega Bay. The area
chosen to flood with freshwater from Long Creek
was filled with centuries-old muck sediments that
had accumulated in the poorly flushed backwater.
That sediment is continuing to create problems
today
Over the years, changes were made in the design
and placement of the structures used to contain the
fresh water in the lake. In the 1970s, the county ap-
proved construction of the Seminole Bypass Canal
to help control flooding along the Long Creek basin.
The canal helped the flooding problem but creat-
ed a new situation, what the experts called hydro-
logic isolation. Subsequently, officials decided to
build an outfall pipe to provide flow into the lake to
prevent stagnation and water quality problems.
However, the decreased flow of fresh water into
the lake allowed for changes in water quality that
contribute to the algae blooms.
As the county grew, the land surrounding Lake
Seminole became more urbanized, creating addi-
tional problems for a water body that staff says was
predetermined by the physical origins of the lake
and subsequent land use changes" to fail.

The quandary
Kelli Levy, Pinellas County Department of Envi-
ronmental Management program manager, said the
lake had been "doomed" from conception.
When asked if the option existed to remove the
dams and let the area revert to the way it was, Levy
said it was impossible, especially in light of today's
water quality requirements.
She also said a number of residents had deeded
property to the county to allow the land to be flood-
ed to create the lake. Those deeds must be honored,
she said.
ELevy called Lake Seminole the county's "personal
She said current plans to install the alum facili-
ties to treat the water, along with removal of sedi-
ments with the dredging project, would help the
lake. She said staff was continuing to look for grants
to help pa morekof the costs.wecm pwt h

cure," asked Commissioner Calvin Harris. "Wrhen
we drained the lake, it was the cure. Now this is the
cure. What is really the cure?"
Levy said the projects in the current Lake Semi-
nole Watershed Management plan had been suc-
cessful.
Commissioner John Morroni said the commission
should keep its word and continue funding for Lake
Seminole.
'Whe'll keep our promises whenever we can," Har-
ris said. "But this has to end. We can't just keep
throwing money at a project because someone at a
desk thinks it will work. We have other projects on
the list, but we keep doing the same project over
and over."
Levy said the lake was an important part of the
community. She said it supported many commercial
industries, including bait fishing and a water skiing
school. It's a popular recreational destination.
"It's the county's third-most used park," she said.

Pedestrian flag program



rCeie SIG apr a


By BOB McCLURE

BELLEAIR BEACH Members of the Barrier
Islands Governmental Council voted unani-
mously July 28 to pass a resolution supporting
a new pedestrian flag program along Gulf Boule-
vard.
The $6 million state program, which was re-
cently approved by the Pinellas County
Metropolitan Planning Organization, will provide
yellow flags for pedestrians to wave as they
cross Gulf Boulevard at 39 crosswalks from
Clearwater Beach south to the Bayway.
The flags, which will be in a container at all
crosswalks, are to be deposited in another con-
tainer once pedestrians cross the street.
By passing the resolution, the BIG-C sup-
ports re ockirh tfthe contanr eb: = be

will be no cost to the municipalities.
The flags will be installed within the next two
wek by Pnels Cout rd Florida Depart-
"It's a mid-block program," said North Red-
ington Beach Mayor Bill Queen. "It won't be at
major intersections where there would be the
distraction of headlights."
The key to the program's success, he said.
would be education of both motorists and
pedestrians.
"It's going to be a work in progress," said
Queen. "Whe're changing a culture that's been in
existence for 50 years.
Julie Bond, with the Center for Urban Trans-
portation Research at the University of South
Florida, said her office has contracted with the
Florida Department of Transportation on a one-
year education component. Bond, who helped
implement a similar program in Salt Lake City-
will make a number of presentations around the
area to educate residents on the use of the flags.
She said Florida has the highest pedestrian
fatality rate in the nation, which makes the pro-
gram a must for the area.
"It will be a good, additional aid for visibility
as you try to cross a major corridor," said Bond.
Robin Grabowski, president of the Tampa
Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce, said her
organization would assist Bond in education ef-
forts by placing flyers on the flag program in in-
formation packets for visitors and rack cards at
welcome centers.

SEMINOLE City Councilors passed a resolution
July 24 that creates a $70 seasonal nonresident
membership for programs at the Seminole Recre-
ation Center.
The seven-month membership is good Oct. 1 to
April 30 and was formulated to increase participa-
tion in winter/spring programs.
The regular nonresident fee for a 1-year member-
ship is $120. City residents can use the facility at
no charge.
Residents also may enroll relatives on active mili-
tary duty and their family members for a 10-week
temporary card entitling them to complimentary use
of the facility.
Residents can also purchase a guest pass for $5 a
day.
In other action, councilors:
*Passed ordinances on second reading to annex
property into the city limits at 12340 98th Ave..
12997 Lois Ave., and 6948 114th St.
*Passed a resolution honoring Fire Chief Dan
Graves who retired July 31.
*Approved an amendment to the city's traffic sig-
nal maintenance and compensation agreement with
the Florida Department of Transportation to pro-
vide the city additional compensation for maintain-
ing control beacons. FDOT reimburses the city for
maintaining traffic lights on Seminole and Bay
Pines boulevards. The city will receive an additional
$656 in 2010-11, $675 in 2011-12 and $696 in
2012-13.
*Approved a contract for Seminole Fire Rescue to


provide fire protection services to the Bay Pines VA

and the beaches safe," said Queen. "If it works.
great."
Queen said he has been seeking ways to improve
pedestrian safety since 2003 when two people were
killed trying to cross Gulf Boulevard at 171st Street.
"Education plays a key role," Queen said. "Mo-
torists need to pay more attention to driving and get
off their cell phones. And pedestrians need to use
their eyes and common sense more.


"Keeping Edmunds is a big yes
for me," she added. "Extending
his contract at this point is not."
Plantamura suggested a modi-
fication to Edmunds' contract
that would require a six-month
notice if he decides to vacate his
current position.
Johnson backed Matthews in
his assessment of Edmunds.
calling him "the best city manag-
er in the state and the best city
manager in the country, proba-
bly.
"When you have that type of
person you don't want it to go
away," Johnson added. "Keep
Frank. Keep him as long as you
can."
Waters said she agreed with
the six-month notice and
change-in-duties clauses but
said the city should be concen-
trating on more important mat-
ters.
"Let's put this to bed," Waters
said. "This is embarrassing. We
should be concentrating on more

important matters."
When Edmunds was asked for
his input during the discussion.
he noted he has not asked for a
contract extension.
"It's a council decision to ex-
tend," Edmunds said. "I do ap-
preciate the support that
Councilor Matthews has offered
based on my performance and I
expect to continue that level of
performance for the duration of
my contract."
Edmunds said he agreed with
the suggestion of renegotiating
his contract in the event his job
duties decrease.
"T~hat would be the reasonable
thing to do," Edmunds said.
However, he did not agree with
the six-month notice suggestion.
"The six-month stipulation
would eliminate me from consid-
eration," Edmunds said. "But I
understand the concern."
Edmunds' current contract re-
quires a 90-day notice if he
chooses to resign.

Beacon, August 5, 2010


The county's Charter Review Commission has decided
against recommending that the Legislature pass a spe-
cial act to allow voters to authorize the repeal and re-
placement of the current charter.
That's the best course of action in light of fears that
the dual vote provision would be eliminated or compro-
mised.
Pinellas County's charter requires that charter
changes be approved by county voters as well as by vot-
ers in municipalities that would be affected. Municipal
leaders said any change to that system would threaten
their home rule.
Such fears led to a lawsuit filed by several cities in
2006 against the Charter Review Commission and the
county over proposed charter amendments.
At the time, Amendment No. 4 would have deleted the
requirement of a dual vote for any charter amendment
pertaining a transfer of county, city or special district


service or regulatory authority. It was soundly defeated,
with 141,281 no votes to 107,030 yes votes.
Though county officials say there is no intent to re-
move the dual vote requirement from the charter, city of-
ficials remain concerned that a fight could ensue
between the cities and the county.
At a time when all governments face many challenges,
such as severe budget shortfalls, cutback in services
and employee shortfall, officials should avoid potentially
expensive battles over charter proposals, especially in
the absence of a hue and cry to make changes.
With so many pressing matters on legislators' plates, a
legislator on the Charter Review Commission said he
doubted that the matter would be considered by the Leg-
islature.
Better to leave well enough alone.

The Pinellas Park City Council has passed a resolution


saying that it is adamantly opposed to Bright House Net-
work's relocation of government access channels.
The city contends that the number of viewers for gov-
ernment access channels were moved to a digital-only
tier, which damages the local government's ability to get
vital information to the community.
The city asks that such channels be restored to their
prior locations among analog programming to be avail-
able to the public without additional charge. The council
has passed the resolution on to other cities for consider-
ation.
Kudos to Pinellas Park for taking the lead on the mat-
ter.
Bright House Networks may have considered the move
a prudent decision, but it leaves a lot to be desired from
a public relations standpoint.
Bright House should give the city's request serious
consideration.


The WV dinners were calling my name: steak tips
Dijon, whiskey steak, sweet and sour chicken.
Which is it going to be?
"Hey, Tom, do you want to go to the Wing House?"
a friend asked.
Rescued again, from death by culinary torture.
You see, I can't drive these days. I had surgery on
my right foot, and there's a pin protruding from the
top of my second toe. The doctor said it would not
feel good if I snagged the toe on something, especial-
ly if I'm driving. I'm pretty sure that he is right.
So I'm grounded.
My dear mom has gone out of her way to help me,
and she worries that I'm going to starve.
"You only have two WV dinners in your refrigera-
tor. What else are you going to eat?"
"Whell... Guess ..."
"I know how finicky you are."
Not sure why I'm a fussy eater. Perhaps it had
something to do with my childhood eating all
those putrid school lunches. Civil War hardtack
comes to mind. I bet the prisoners at Andersonville
ate better.
"Whell?"
Mom snapped me out of my daydream.
"I guess a couple of more WV dinners."
"Like what?"
'Terlyaki chicken."
"OK King Germond."
She's gone now, and I know that I'm prolonging
the inevitable. Sooner or later, I'm going to have to
slap one of those babies into the microwave and
hope that the ingredients don't do a BP on my intes-
tines.
I've tried to give away WV dinners without success.
"I'm overstocked; I have three left," I e-mailed a co-
worker.
Maybe there's another way to prepare WV dinners
besides microwaving them or baking them.
Since I can move somewhat around the house.
what if I grilled the whiskey steak? Probably would
violate federal emissions standards.
I used to like certain WV dinners. Mashed potatoes


Tom
Germond


and fried chicken were my favorite, which explains
why I'm a poster child for colonoscopys.
Nevertheless, WV dinners have quite a following.
Believe it or not, according to a Web site, the aver-
age American eats six frozen dinners a month and
lives to tell about it.
The ministers of propaganda for WV dinners,
frozen dinners, or whatever you call them, say they
are not going away any time soon. So if you are
going to have a frozen dinner, they say, try to pick a
dinner that has some nutritional value. One that
has oceans of sodium is not a good choice.
In 1986, the original aluminum Swanson WV Din-
ner tray was inducted into the Smithsonian Insti-
tute. What the Web sites don't tell you is that it is
encased in an exhibit for famous petrified artifacts.
OK, maybe I have a poor attitude. I can see the
letters coming:
"Mr. Germond, there are millions of starving peo-
ple out there, and you are complaining about having
to eat a few WV dinners. You should be ashamed of
yourself."
When I was a kid, my standard reply to that line
was send the WV dinners to the starving people. I
was too young to realize that by the time those din-
ners made it overseas, they'd be petrified.
Realizing that my cupboards were almost bare
the other night, I pulled the sweet and sour chicken
dinner out of the refrgerator and threw it in the mi-
crowave. I sniffed at the product a few times,
chewed the entree and actually liked it.
"Not bad," I said.
So I'm ready for the whiskey steak. What have I
got to lose? I've tasted worse things in life.
Crow comes to mind.


Reading the following column could save you the
price of a movie ticket. Or maybe not.
The recently-released blockbuster "Inception" has
been getting mostly good reviews. But some of them
have suggested that customers may want to see the
movie twice once for sheer enjoyment, and the
second time to figure out what in heaven's name the
film was about.
The best advice for first-timers is this: pay close
attention to everything that's done or said. Most
modern movies don't require us to do anything
more than count the number of explosions and uses
of the "F" word. In contrast, "Inception" deals with
ideas. Does it ever.
The major ideas are (A) that the human mind can
be invaded and its contents stolen, or extracted and
(B) that outside data can be secretly implanted in a
victim's mind. That pro-


father. Cobb and his allies attack. Shootings, explo-
sions and avalanches ensue. The fortress is the
imagining of a young designer genius, Ariadne
(Ellen Page). As an actress, Page is appealing but
generally expressionless. But she will bring in the
younger movie crowd.
Michael Caine has a walk-on role that could have
been handled equally well by dozens of other ac-
tors. A much larger
role is filled by a spin-
'Inception' will ning topwhinoswn eass a
;for its acting, authenticate the iden-
Spull down an tity of whevlearsto it
ten Globe for The film contains
tS dozens of car chases.
In the cars are various
persons, usually sedat-
ed and calm, despite a
hellish array of gunshots going off around them.
One shot seriously wounds Saito in the chest, and
he looks ready to die. But then the dreamscape
shifts, and the wound is healed.
You got all this straight?
"Inception" was written and directed by Christo-
pher Nolan, a 39-year-old British-American who de-
veloped the film over a 10-year span. The movie
lasts 148 minutes, which is twenty minutes too
long. Whether you enjoy or understand the movie
may depend on your IQ. your familiarity with LSD
trips, and/or the success of your last reading of
Sigmund Freud's dream theories,
I'm not sure how many stars to give "Inception."
But I'm glad I saw it. I'll be happy to view it again,
but next time it will be at home on a DVD. This will
allow me to stop the action any time I wish, to deci-
pher what's going on. If I were 30 and had grown
up with assorted sci-fi computer games and gadg-
ets as part of my daily training, I might not feel as
baffled as I do with many modem movies, WV pro-
grams and communications devices. As is, I feel in-
creasingly lost in today's hi-tech world. I recently
learned that "app" is short for "application." The lat-
est cellphones have dozens of invaluable apps,
such as checking the weather in Minsk and leam-
ing Dick Cheney's current heart rate. What a brave
new world.


Manager has love fest with council
Editor.
Hooray for Patricia Plantamura and one lone let-
ter writer in the Beacon this week!

m nagner sidm sh o thotn oi ciie cof Hielasp dun y
He has a love fest with the councilors almost every
year, and the voters of Seminole are busy with just
trying to make a living in this economic slowdown
and don't see how their little city is being ripped off
every year by this man.
If he truly were a man of honor, he would request
a reduction in salary, reductions on additions to his
retirement, and every other extravagant benefit that
he receives every year for the same services that
any city manager in any other little city in Pinellas
County receives, but he has done this for years and
the same old council gives him anything he asks for
because they are afraid of him.
As far as annexation in his city is concerned, he
sends city employees out to promise the citizens the
moon only to get them into the city for the 12 per-
cent taxes on the electric bill each month, that goes
into the general fund promising to pave roads.
take down trees on private property, and better
drainage.
The three properties that were added this week
through annexation need to check their electric bill
next month and see where they get the advantage of
paying 12 percent more each month forever,
Thanks again for one councilor who is wide
awake and one letter from a concerned citizen, who
are aware of where the big bucks of the city of
Seminole are going. Residents need to remember to
vote and change the faces on the City Council at
every chance

Plantamura
is disappointing
Editor:
I'm writing in response to the article in the Semi-
nole Beacon dated July 20. As a former city of
Seminole City Council member, I must express my
disappointment with Councilor (Patricia) Planta-
mura's review of the city manager, Frank Ed-
munds.
I honestly believe Ms. Plantamura has a personal
issue with Mr. Edmunds. Since she joined council
she has singled out Mr. Edmunds and has made it
very clear to me her attacks are personal. Ms. Plan-
tamura cannot make a distinction between the per-
son (Mr. Edmunds) and the position (city manager).
In my five years of serving the residents of our
city, I have always found Mr. Edmunds to be noth-
ing but professional in the way he performed his
responsibilities.
I honestly believe Ms. Plantamura is a smart per-
son but if her attacks are her way of consensus
building, she is going to fail.
The other issue brought up in the article was a
suggestion by Councilor (Bob) Matthews to extend


Mr. Edmunds' contract. I am on record of not being
a fan of long-term contracts. Mr. Edmunds is defi-
nitely an asset to our community but the time to
renegotiate any ones contract should be in the final

dcde d o exe d the cot at Ins r n co suggs t
contract is updated to today's standards.
A simple extension of a contract written 10 years
ago is not fair to the contract holder or to the city
because the labor laws have changed dramatically
over the years.

Praise for city manager
Editor:
As a resident of Seminole since 2007, I would like
to express my personal appreciation for the fine
work accomplished by the City Manager, Frank Ed-
munds.
I was pleased to read that the majority of City
Council members also recently gave Frank Ed-
munds praise for his accomplishments.
Being a private citizen, I have had concerns re-
garding 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 Edmunds has
spent considerable time to answer my questions. I
appreciate the extra effort of this city's manager.

Harn Boulevard now dangerous
Editor:
There is a piece of traffic engineering in the city of
Clearwater that really needs to be corrected. Ham
Boulevard has been engineered to the point where
it is now dangerous. First, it was speed bumps that
dropped the speed limit from 25 to 15 mph.
Then it was concrete traffic barriers in the mid-
dle of the street that limited the space available for
automobiles. Now they have put in concrete curb
extensions that are downright dangerous. Who is
doing the thinking on this last decision?
The concrete curb extensions further narrows
the space available for auto traffic. It completely
eliminates the space available for bicycles. We do
have children in the neighborhood who ride their
bicycles. They are not allowed to ride on the side-
walks. They can only ride in the streets and there
is insufficient room on Harn Boulevard for a car
and a bicycle to pass the concrete curb extensions.
Sure, the bicycle is supposed to stop when it comes
to the barrier to allow the auto to pass. They are
betting the children's lives that they will stop.
Wouldn't anyone think that may be rather high
stakes? A child or an adult may be distracted on
approaching one of the curb barriers and acciden-
tally pull into the path of a car. Serious injury or
death could be the result.

sleeping big-time executives and steal valuable cor-
porate information. But Cobb is sick of his line of
work. He just wants to get home to his two small
children, from whom he's been exiled because of
his being wrongfully accused of murdering his wife.
His big chance to get out of the mind-invasion
racket comes when a businessman, Saito, hires
Cobb to invade the mind of Fischer, a young indus-
trial heir, and convince him to break up the empire
he'll inherit when his father dies. If Cobb can do
this, he can return to the real world and be happy
with his children. Or so he hopes.
That's the skeleton of "Inception." The guts of the
film lie in its interwoven mind-games and its spe-
cial effects meant to show the visions, grandeur
and horrors that can inhabit anyone's dreams or
subconscious. I don't know if "Inception" will win
any awards for its acting, but it's a lock to pull
down an Oscar or a Golden Globe for its special ef-
fects. They are so far out you may choose to see the
movie a second time just to again witness all of
Paris turned upside-down or teams of assassins
plying their trade while spinning through gravity-
free hotel corridors.
Logic plays a part in this movie, but it's slippery.
For example, near the film's end for no apparent
reason the action shifts abruptly to an Alps-like
setting. A mountain fortress houses Fischer's dying

I fail to see any useful purpose for the need of

a bicycle lane. There is suffcient room for a bicy-

Beacon, August 5, 2010


I recently became the proud owner of a 27-foot
Coachman motor home.
And then the fun began.
Or, maybe that should be, when self-made dis-
asters began.
Until recently I thought of camping as a room at
a Marriott or Holiday Inn Express. It was my wife,
Patricia, who convinced me about the benefits of a
home on wheels. She did a lot of camping all over
Michigan in her younger years. I'm from Brooklyn,
N.Y., and there weren't many campsites in the city.
"We could take the dog," she said enthusiastical-
ly, pointing to our wrinkle-nosed pug. "We could
save money on hotels and restaurants."
I calculated that to make the RV pay for itself I'd
have to drive it every day until 2065. I'd be 124
years old.
So off to Lazy Days in Seffner we went. Thaf's
the granddaddy of all motor home dealerships. I
was teamed up with a salesman named Steve
Scialli, a former Lakeland cop, who introduced me
to everything from monster bus coaches to pull
toys that sleep one or two people,
I finally settled on a Class C Coachman that
came with everything, including a kitchen sink. It
also has a very thirsty V-10 engine.
I then spent a small fortune on bedding, kitchen
items, tools, even a wall clock that another RVer
said had no place in a motor home. The Camping
World store adjacent to Lazy Days drew me like a
magnet. Thirty minutes and too much spent
money later I walked out with lawn chairs, how-to
books and an assortment of gadgets.
Then came the first trip, to Ocala, that almost
mirrored the misadventures of Robin Williams in
the movie, "RV," thaf's about the escapades of a
vacationing family in a motor home. I managed to
get my hand trapped in the awning. I injured the
other when my ring got caught on the ladder. My


Thomas
M~ichalski


wife short-circuited the electric power with a defec-
tive hair dryer and I didn't empty the shower/sink
holding tank until it backed up.
Thanks to a fellow traveler, a man named
Stephen who was a college professor from Cana-
da, I learned about sanitation, electricity and un-
folding the awning without amputating anything.
The campsite manager thought my frustration
was quite humorous because I was unable to get a
picture on the TV. He pushed a button changing
the system from antenna use to cable.
By the end of the first weekend I was raising
and lowering the awning like a pro. I now can step
down from the RV and turn on the generator at
the same time. And I quickly discovered why
RVers store sanitary hoses in an enclosed rear
bumper. (They tend to stink after use.) I also
learned that the yellow Mercury convertible that
Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball used in the 1950s
movie '"The Long Long Trailer" in real life could not
have done the job.
RVers, and I'm a long way from being one until I
get more miles under my belt, are very helpful
people. Their motto is "Just ask" and they will
come up with answers. Every RVer, from owners
of tiny pull along to those with Greyhound bus-
size monstrosities, are willing to share their knowl-
edge and experience.
Lazy Days, unlike most large companies, did ev-
erything they said they would, including answer-
ing all my dumb questions ("Whaf's this button


Inhe MICnalSK

fon?")
Just call if you have a problem, a service man-
ager said.

children to add to the world starvation problem,
as our world is multiplying rapidly in large num-
bers.
There is more to life than being a housewife,
mother and basically a breeding mare for a
man, husband or otherwise.
Instead of being so self-centered, women need
to stop basing their self-worth on a man, as
there is more to life than a sexual relationship
with a man/woman.
People need to start thinking about what they
can do to help alleviate the world's problems, in-
stead of physical gratification and adding to the
world's problems by having children.
Almost everyone in the world today complains
about existing problems, yet does nothing to fix
these problems. That is why we have rapes,
world starvation, incurable diseases the list of
problems is endless.
Although various support groups do serve a
purpose, it is better to concentrate on making it


a better world for everyone, not just play follow
the leader and have a child because your moth-
er did so. It is time to think for yourself and be a
leader, not a follower, and concentrate on world-
wide issues and not me, me, me!

I found the cartoon idiotic since an armed citizen
would present a challenge to any criminal, but was
disturbed that the Beach Bee is now mocking the

What other rights don't you think we should
have?
So now any arrivals of the Beach Bee will go from

Clean up after dogs
Editor:
Many dog owners neglect to clean up after
their dogs along the Pinellas Trail. This is un-
pleasant for other users of the Trail and especial-
ly unpleasant for homeowners, such as me,
whose property abuts the trail.
It is unfortunate that dog owners do not treat
public property and those that live beside it with
the same consideration they would show to their
neighbors and neighbors property.

the table.
Superintendent Julie Janssen said some examples of major cuts are
$1.3 million being saved through staff reductions many of those due
to retirement and attrition; $2.3 million savings on employee health in-
surance; $900,000 savings on transportation by reducing 20 routes;
school improvement funds found $1.2 million in savings; all depart-
ments' and schools' discretionary funds were each reduced about 15
to 20 percent, getting about $2 million in savings.
Also, additional duty days were reduced at a minimum of 111 days
to save money; overtime was reduced in all departments, getting an-
other $500,000; there was a redesign of literacy success, saving
$500,000; extended learning was reduced by $1 million; contracted
services saved about $2 million; travel reimbursement found savings
through reduction of travel and reimbursement going back to about
the 2004 rate.
There has been a new delivery model designed for math and science
coaches, after lots of input from principals and teachers, saving about
$800,000; blackberry usage will save money by taking them all back
and then reissuing them based on safety and efficiency; substitute
teachers funds will produce savings by reducing the numbers of teach-
ers pulled out of school for training and save at least $1.4 million in
subs. The district added an early retirement option, saving a total of
$17.7 million.
When the audience had the chance to speak, Kim Black, president
of the teachers' union, thanked the district for eliminating furloughs
from the table and for allowing step increases and an additional train-
ing day. She said she was also pleased that the various groups are
restoring their relationships.
'We're~ back on track, and we're working together to restore relation-
ships that have been previously damaged due to the recession and the
result of the severe economic hardship," Black said.
The district unanimously passed the maximum millage rate and the
tentative budget. The final budget hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 14,

School Board OKs tentative budget

The $1.35 billion budget for 2010-11 will include $26 million in cuts


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

The Pinellas County School Board unanimously approved the tenta-
tive 2010/2011 budget and adopted the maximum possible millage
rate at the first public hearing on July 27. The maximum millage rate
is set at 8.340, down .07 percent from last year's rate of 8.346, and the
total proposed budget is set at $1.35 billion.
This version of the tentative budget was explained to the board and
the public in presentations given by Kevin Smith, director of account-
ing, and Frederick Mat, assistant superintendent of finance and busi-
ness.
A mill is one dollar of tax for every $1,000 of taxable value, and the
school district's millage is comprised of the capital outlay funds as well
as general operating funds, including discretionary, critical operating
discretionary, local referendum, and the state mandated required local
effort.
Not only did the millage rate get reduced slightly, property values
are down, which is what generates the most amount of money for the
district, so that equates to an even sharper decline of revenue for the
district. This is illustrated by the rolled-back millage rate, which is the
rate that would be necessary to generate the same amount of money
that was raised the prior fiscal year, but using the new property values
after adjusted for new construction. In order to have the same amount
of money to work with as last year, the district would have had to raise
the millage rate to 9.3257, or a 9.7 percent hike. Because the district
did not do this, it estimates that it will lose about $48.6 million in
property tax revenue this year, according to a presentation to the
board by finance staff.
In total, the district had to cut about $26 million from the budget
this year. Various legislative issues increased the financial burden for
school districts, including the state decreasing the base student al-
lowance and continuing to require the class size categorical. The dis-
trict used federal stabilization funds to try to fill the gap, but this is the
last year that these funds will be available. The state now provides only
37 percent of the district's funding, leaving the local taxpayers to pick
up 48 percent of the responsibility.
The district's priorities are highest student achievement, providing a
safe learning environment, having an effective and efficient operation,
and the operating budget parameters. These priorities were kept in
mind when the district decided on which tough cuts to make. Cuts are
difficult because salaries make up 63 percent of the operating budget,
with benefits making up 22 percent. The operating budget are the
funds that are used for day-to-day operating expenses for the district,
which also includes supplies and materials, textbooks and library
books, student transportation, utilities and maintenance and repairs.
This year's operating fund is $888 million.
School Board member Linda Lerner asked for a summary of the ten-
tative budget cuts so the public would know what is being discussed
at the moment. For instance, until shortly before the first budget hear-
ing, teacher furloughs had been in the plan, but those are no longer on

CLEARWATER Pinellas County commission-
ers unanimously approved July 27 tentative mil-
lage rates for fiscal year 2011.
The proposed countywide millage is 5.55
mills, including the general fund, EMS and
health department. Countywide property taxes
would be $575 for a single-family residential
property at the average taxable value of
$103,490. If approved, residents would pay
$1.58 a day for countywide services.
According to a report presented by John
Woodruff, county budget director, of the total
437,017 parcels on the property tax roll, 93 per-
cent are residential properties, and 62 percent of
those properties have homestead exemptions
and are eligible for the Save Our Homes cap.
Some residents could see an increase in their


tax bill this year even though the value on their
property went down due to the Recapture Rule.
Woodruff gave an example using a house with
a market value of $203,000 in 2010. By sub-
tracting the $50,000 homestead exemption and
the $40,600 Save Our Homes exemption, the
taxable value of the home would be $112,000.
The taxes on the home with the 2010 county-
wide millage rate of 5.45 would be $613.
The same home with a market value of
$174,375 in 2011 would see an increase in
taxes due to the recapture rule that limits the
Save Our Homes cap exemption to $8,940 and
the increase in the EMS millage rate. County-
wide taxes for that property would increase to
$641.70.
On the other side, nonhomesteaded property
taxes would go down to match the market value
decrease even though the millage rate increased.


Thne tentative MSTU millage rate for residents
of unincorporated areas of the county was set at
2.0857 the same as 2010. This millage is
equivalent to the millage rates paid by residents
living in a municipality.
The commissioners said no to a request by
the Public Library Co-op to increase the current
millage rate of0.4437 to the 0.5 cap.
However, they did approve a request from the
Palm Harbor Recreation &r Library District to in-
crease the millage from 0.4378 to the "roll up"
amount of 0.4914. The commissioners told
members of the district that final approval of the
increase would depend on public support, in-
cluding people who do not use the services.
Thne millage rate for the Feather Sound Com-
munity Services District will remain the same at
0.5660. No increase is proposed for the Pinellas
Planning Council with a millage of 0.0125.


Tentative millage rates were approved for the
12 fire districts administered by the commis-
sioners. Six of the 12 have proposed millage in-
creases for FY 2011, including Clearwater,
Gandy, High Point, Largo, Safety Harbor and
Tierra Verde.
Public hearings are scheduled on Sept. 7 and
Sept. 21 to approve the final millage rates and
the 2011 county budgets. During budget hear-
ings, the commissioners can lower the various
millage rates, but cannot raise them.
The final budgets and millage rates must be
adopted on Sept. 21. All millage rates take a
simple majority to approve with the exception of
the millage rates for the Gandy and Largo fire
districts, which must be approved by a unani-
mous vote.

typical of the Sherman's fox squirrel. Fox squirrels are the largest of tree squirrels and can be almost
twice the size of the common gray squirrel. The fox squirrel was given its name because of its large
bushy tail and its unusual way of running along the ground similar to a small fox. The Sherman's fox
squirrel is a threatened species due to habitat destruction.

Spoons remain the best bet for mackerel | Notebook


Spanish mackerel remain thick in the area and
targeting them can be easy.
Whether you're fishing from a boat or a pier, sil-
ver spoons rigged with a trolling sinker allow you
to cover a ton of water in a short amount of time.
If you're from a boat try chumming with live bait


on the same tide for days to come. Switching to
natural baits either live or dead will yield numbers
of reds.
Pompano fishing usually peaks this time of year
and it appears this season is no different. Area
bridges such as the Tierra Verde Bridge, the Mies-
ner Bridge and the Gandy are all hot spots right
now.
Anglers fishing the current eddies on the down-
tide side of the bridge using half and three-eighths
ounce yellow Silly Willy jigs have been able to
catch a limit of pomps fairly easy. Live fiddler
crabs and shrimp also will produce, but most an-
glers prefer the ease of the jig as they can walk
from piling to piling until they find a school of
pompano.
Drop the jig directly behind the piling and jig it
up and down erratically throughout the water col-
umn. If the bite is slow, try scraping the pilings
with a spade in order to attract the schools.
Until next week, get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
captryson@hotmail.com. To get a jish photo in the
paper, send the photo along with your name, when
and where it was caught to editorial@TBN
weekly.com or mail it to Tamqpa Bay Newspapers,
9911 Seminole Blod., Seminole, FL 33772.


Safe boating class slated
TREASURE ISLAND The Boca Ciega Sail and Power Squadron
plans a safe boating class on Monday and Wednesday evenings begin-
ning Aug. 9 and ending Aug. 18.
The course is designed for boaters using all types of watercraft and
satisfies the Florida boating law requirements.
The course covers general information about boats, personal water-
craft, maintenance, boating safety as well as boating laws and regula-
tions.
Graduates are eligible to join the squadron and take advantage of
the other educational opportunities afforded to members. The class
will be conducted at the squadron building at 130 126th Ave. at La-
goon Lane, Treasure Island.
The cost for materials is $40. For information and to reserve a seat
contact course chairman Kenneth Dodge at 398- 1996.

choose to include. Also include a phone number in case we need addi-
tional information.

to fire the macks
up and be sure to
put out a chum
block to entice
any other preda-
tors in the area
i.e. cobia, which
have been show-


ing up consistently lately.
Best spots would include the Sk~yway fishing
piers, the channel markers inside Tampa Bay and
the artificial reefs 5 to 12 miles offshore.
Persistent west winds had made our protected
inshore waters especially appealing this past week.
Redfish topped the list last week; finding quality
sized reds really depends on whether or not you
can find the larger mullet.
Higher tidal stages have been best for the reds.
Cast gold spoons near to any mangrove points that
are holding mullet. Once you've located the reds,
you can expect them to return to the same point

Brooker to host frog program
TARPON SPRINGS Where Have All The Frogs Gone, a free educa-
tional program, will be presented saturday, Aug. 7, 10 to 11 a.m., at
Brooker Creek Preserve, 3940 Keystone Road.
Attendees will learn why populations of frogs and other amphibian
species are declining rapidly around the world. Like old-fashioned ca-
naries in the coal mine, amphibians may be giving signals about the
health of the planet's wetlands. Pollution is considered the second
greatest threat to aquatic and amphibious species in the United
States, yet very little research has been dedicated to study its overall
impact.
Neal Halstead, University of south Florida, will discuss this cutting-
edge research that may illuminate environmental problems and help
develop solutions that enhance the likelihood of a sustainable excis-
tence for humans and wildlife.
CThe poga is best suited for adults. Preregistration is required.

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.
Fred Lemond, BP Cleanup Operations


BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes
keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the
coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared
photography. Once oil is found, they radio down to the 6,000 ships and boats
of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect the
oil. These are thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into
task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from as far
as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from
the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional
gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed more than 8 million feet of
boom to protect beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In
coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend
operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on
the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the
Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect but
we will do everything we can to make this right.

People aren't the only ones vacationing at home


We're so lucky to live in Florida. All we have
to do is go outside, and we're on vacation.
Sunny days. Velvet nights. Pounding surf.
Do it, and you're on staycation.
People aren't the only ones vacationing at
home. I think the life of a bottlenose dolphin
bull is one long stayca-
tion.
Actually, there are D
two kinds of bulls, sea-
sonal bulls and local
bulls. Local bulls stay- Anu
cation. .
Seasonal bulls ap-
pear annually, visiting in spring or summer to
court available females. The few seasonal
bulls who visited this year only stayed a cou-
ple of days. It isn't always like this. In 2007,
seasonable bulls stayed for the summer. This
year, there may have been discouraging social
opportunities. Or, there may have been dis-
couraging local bulls.
Local bulls are residents who live here
"most of the time." Our infamous resident
Bowery Boys are busy courting opportunity
with a divide-and conquer-strategy. N, Riptab,
BB, DD2, and Scrapefin have split up and fol-
low females all across the study area.
Some are betting on local girls, others on
seasonal girls.
Big bull N fed near local girl DD1 last week
as they searched two different bays. DD1's
calf Doodle is 2 years old now, which means
DD1 may be back in the mating game. N's no
fool.
But N might also be nursing his recent
brush with a shark in the safety of familiar
companions. The shark left a couple of shal-
low slashes and light-weight bite marks on N's
right side. If that shark had done more dam-
age, oh!, I would have missed that boy!
Riptab is following young local Bet. He and
she formed a consortship this winter, which is
the animal science way of saying they're going
steady. As far as I know, this is a first for both


of them. Riptab is particularly randy, even for
bottlenose bulls (who are randy creatures
anyway). Bet tends to be socially peripheral-
ized. It was endearing and amusing to see
Riptab swirling around his delicate compan-
ion, and to see her acting coy.
BB and DD2 are playing the long
shot, betting on seasonal females
Iphin who visit in spring and summer.
Watch Those who come here to usher
newborns through their first vul-
Weaver nerable months are unavailable for
mating. Those who are accompa-
nied by older calves probably are
available for mating. Indeed, BB and DD2
were trailing seasonal female Osiris while her
ready-to-wean calf played elsewhere.
Scrapefin had female adventures with both
local and seasonal girls. The other day, he
was hunting one of the deep holes that pock
the otherwise shallow waterways. Two females
swung by, with two very different results.
Local girl Courtney was heading south with
her brand new baby, but veered over to him.
They joined up, flanked the tiny dolphin that
periodically blitzed over the surface between
them, and then went their separate ways.
This is polite dolphin behavior.
Just minutes later, seasonal girl Club ap-
peared, heading north. She spends her sum-
mers here (and may be pregnant this year).
Scrapefin went out to meet her. They swam
side by side for a time, and then submerged
into the private world of all dolphins. When
Scrapefin surfaced, he was alone. Club abso-
lutely vanished.
He didn't like this! In response, he catapult-
ed into the sky, froze momentarily, and then
slammed against the water surface. The sec-
ond time, he shot even higher, and the third
time higher yet! Each body-slam made lots of
splashes and underwater noise. Whether he
was calling Club back or shouting invectives
remains to be seen. She undoubtedly got the
message, but didn't come back.

Local bull Scrapefin launches into a body slam
to send a message to a passing female.
If you're staycation boating and see a large
dolphin launch like a rocket and drop like a
tree, it could be an irritated or frustrated bull.
Hopefully, your staycations don't include such
moments, and last longer than this story just
did.

ing the following films opening in wide release:

'The Other Guys'
Genre: Action, adventure and comedy
Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton and
Steve Coogan
Director: Adam McKay
Rated: PG-13
NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and P.K.
Highsmith (Samuel L,. Jackson) are the baddest and most beloved cops
in New York City. They don't get tattoos other men get tattoos of
them.
Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will Fer-
rell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You've seen them in the back-
ground of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes
closed. They're not heroes they're the other guys.
But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stum-
ble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch
that could tumn into New York City's biggest crime. It's the opportunity
of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

Genre: Drama and musical
Cast: Rick Malambri, Shami Vinson, Adam G. Sevani, Alyson Stoner
and Harry Shum Jr.
Director: Jon Chu

of 2006 continues as "Step Up 3D," the third installment of the hit film
franchise from Touchstone Pictures and Summit Entertainment, ups
the ante as the first dance drama ever to be shot and released in digi-
tal 3D.
Acclaimed director Jon M. Chu, who made his feature directorial

Sevani and Alyson Stoner, who both reprise their original roles, plus

cundo Lombard and Oren "Flearock" Michaeli co-star .
New York's intense street-dancing underground comes alive in eye-

monts earned their place in the history books. Also appearing will be

OPENING, from page 1B

'Flipped'
Genre: Family
Cast: Madeline Carroll, Rebecca De Mornay, Anthony Edwards,
John Mahoney and Penelope Ann Miller
Director: Rob Reiner
Rated: PG
When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it's love.
Bryce isn't so sure.
Beginning that day, and for the next six years, young Bryce (Callan
McAuliffe) does everything he can to keep his outspoken wannabe girl-
friend at arm's length ... which isn't easy since they go to the same
school and live across the street from each other.
Smart, dreamy, independent and willing to stand up for what she
believes in, Juli (Madeline Carroll) is different from anyone else he
knows and, frankly, it's a little overwhelming. What's a guy supposed
to do when a girl tells him his hair smells like watermelon or wants
him to sit in a tree for the spectacular view? There's just no telling
what Juli will do next, and Bryce is one guy who'd rather be safe than
sorry.
Though disappointed by Bryce's unwillingness to see things her
way, or even to see the things in life she finds most meaningful, Juli
continues to give her potential dreamboat the benefit of the doubt.
Until those doubts stack up so high that she finally thinks maybe she
was wrong about him.
It's just about the same time Bryce starts to think maybe he was
wrong about her, too. But is he too late?
The coming-of-age romantic comedy "Flipped," from director Rob
Reiner, takes Bryce and Juli from Grade School to Junior High,
through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they

In 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores, and

beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies.
And then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby
(Gabriel Macht), two ingenious but troubled men, who had invented
the way adult entertainment is sold over the Internet.
When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds himself
