County commissioners made sev-
eral changes Aug. 17 to the pro-
posed budget for fiscal year 2011.
The board has been meeting
with staff about areas of concern
since County Administrator Bob
LaSala presented his budget on
July 13. They targeted funding
for EMS, drug court, code en-
forcement, homeless outreach
and social action.
Staff proposed an EMS millage
increase from 0.58 to 0.68, about
an additional $10.64 a year in
taxes for a single-family residen-
tial property with a taxable value
of $103,490, the average in Pinel-
Ths commissioners asked for
proposals for additional cost-say-
ings in an attempt to avert the
millage increase. Staff came back

paramedic position for Squad 26
at Pinellas Suncoast Fire and
Rescue District will be eliminated
for a savings of $484,750. Fund-
ing of $312,500 to Bayflite also
will be eliminated.
The commissioners voted
against cuts to Rescue 19 at Sta-
tion 19 in the Lealman Fire Dis-
trict. The $451,000 needed to
restore funding for paramedic po-
sitions will come from EMS re-
Lealman residents, as well as
officials with the fire district, ob-
jected strongly to eliminating the
funding for two paramedic posi-
tions at Station 19. The concern
was increased response times for

SEMINOLE Seniors in the Seminole area now have a new
option for weekday entertainment.
Thanks to a $20,000 investment by city officials, a senior
lounge on the second floor of the Seminole Recreation Center
has been refurbished with a number of amenities designed to
attract larger numbers.
City officials held a ribbon cutting Aug. 23 to open the 1,300-
square-foot lounge, which will feature a new, full-sized billiards
table, five 36-inch tables for playing cards and other games,
and two large-screen HDTVs with digital cable.
'IWe've always had senior programs," said recreation program
coordinator Dwayne Crandall."T~hey had an ebb and flow (of
participants) over the years but when we lost county reim-
bursement for non-city participants (due to cutbacks related to
Amendment 1), it had an impact on participation."
The room will include 42- and 52-inch HDTVs one of which
will be used for a new Wii electronic game system featuring the
Wii Sports and Wii Resort Sports programs. Plans call for sen-
ior bowling and tennis leagues using the game.
Recreation Leader II Kristyn Sabbag is in charge of the senior
program and is looking forward to working with residents ages
50 and older.
"I plan 10 get them going on Wii and
show them how to play."
- Kristyn Sabbag
Recreation Leader II
"I plan to get them going on Wii and show them how to play,"
she said. "W~e want to get a bowling league going and maybe
host a tournament."
Sabbag said she would also bring card games to the lounge
and teach other games, such as blackjack and poker.
"Wer want to make it a nice, relaxing environment for them to
come and enjoy," said Sabbag.
Other amenities will include a book swap program, puzzles,
daily newspapers and magazines. There also will be a coffee
service Monday and Wednesday only to start.
The lounge is free to use for city residents and available to
noncity residents with a recreation membership. Memberships
are available for $120 per year. Guests of members will be

SEMINOLE Now that the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill has been stopped, the questions regarding the
longterm effects of dispersants and the claims process
were discussed Aug. 18 during the second of three oil
crisis forums at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg
Speakers included U.S. Coast Guard Commander
Joseph Boudrow, the Florida deputy incident com-
mander; Henry Bamnet, director of the Division of Law
Enforcement for the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection; Alan Farmer, director of the Re-
source Conservation and Recovery Act division of the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 4; Ray
Dempsey, director of public affairs and government re-
lations for BP; and Neil Brown, editor of the St. Peters-
Speaking on the topic of chemical dispersants used
to break up surface oil, Farmer said their use has been
discontinued since the well was capped July 15, with
the exception of 200 gallons applied on July 19.
Farmer noted that on Aug. 2 EPA issued Phase 2
dispersant toxicity testing results and eight of the dis-
persants used had toxicity when mixed with oil.
Among the most controversial was the use of Corexit
9527, which has been designated as a "chronic and
acute health hazard" by the EPA. The product uses 2-
butoxyethanol that has been linked to health problems
of cleanup crews who worked on the Exxon Valdez
The impact it and other dispersants will have on ma-
rine and human life remains to be seen.
"W've,~ asked for an additional $2 million for disper-
sant research grants to universities," Farmer said.

The Coast Guard officially celebrates its inception
on Aug. 4, the day in 1790 in which Congress first
authorized 10 vessels to enforce tariff and trade
laws on the seas. The service, known as the Rev-
enue Marine or the Revenue Cutter Service, merged
with the Life-Saving Service in 1915, taking on its
modern name. It currently serves under the De-
partment of Homeland security in times of peace
and under the Navy Department in times of war.
Air Station Clearwater, the nation's largest and
biggest Coast Guard station, was established after
the station commissioned in St. Petersburg moved
next to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Intemnational
Airport in 1976.
After the ceremony, guests were treated to a tour
of the air station.

Pinellas County parks to remain free another year
was just a matter of time before the county would have to charge.
"Wer can take it (budget shortfall) from the $20 million, but we'll be
back next year doing the same thing," she said.
She said while implementing fees is "distasteful," all the larger
counties "have already done it besides us."
Putting off the decision is "kicking the can down the road," she said.
'Wer need the money to keep the parks staffed. I think it's a mistake
not to do this."
Latvala joined the other commissioners in the end and supported
the plan to take money from the stabilization fund.
Commissioner Karen Seel agreed without the fees, next year's budg-
et would be challenging.
"If we do this we have to prove it (charging fees) will take care of it
(parks budget needs)," she said.
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners said no Aug. 17 to
a staff plan to charge park fees. Instead, the $900,000 budget short-
fall will come from the $20 million stabilization reserve fund.
Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard said projections
show annual revenues of $2.7 million coming from fees of $5 at Fort
De Soto and $3 for regional parks, including Heritage Village, Weedon
Island and Brooker Creek preserves. An annual pass of $75 also was
proposed, as well as half-price admission at Fort De Soto Park for peo-
ple with proof of participation in the Food Stamp or WIC program.
This is the second year the commissioners have said no to staff
plans to balance the park budget with user fees, and for the second
year Commissioner Calvin Harris championed the cause of free parks.
"For a lot of people, the ability to access the parks is the only form
of recreation they have," Harris said. "Whe're just not at a point where
we need to charge."
Harris objected to spending one-time money of $1.1 million for pay
and display devices, tollbooths and road improvements for Fort De
Soto needed to collect the fees. Staff estimated annual recurring cost
for operations and maintenance at $662,000, which includes
$410,000 for 12 full-time and two part-time employees.
Harris said instead of spending money to charge park fees, the
commission should make sure that parks were available to "all our
citizens, regardless of ability to pay.
Taxpayers paid for parks and preserve lands, Harris said.
'Whhen they (the public) said they wanted to buy land to put aside, I
bet they didn't think they would have to pay to see it," he said. "Maybe
two years down the road we'll have to do this (fees) but we're not in
such dire straits now.
Fees are needed to meet fiscal year 2011 budget targets and keep
the parks open seven days a week, according to a staff report.
Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she was concerned about the 25
percent administration cost to collect fees, especially when added to
the one-time capital expense.
She suggested looking at the budget as a whole and giving priority
to spending that benefited the most. She said parks have a recreation-
al and economic advantage and benefit local residents, seasonal visi-
tors and tourists.
Harris and Commissioner Ken Welch advocated using some of the
additional money from revised property tax revenue estimates. The
$2.7 million was budgeted to go into the stabilization fund, which to-
tals $20 million.
Commissioner Susan Latvala spoke in favor of the fees, saying it

Largo nature center
to stay open next year
By TOM GERMOND
IARGO City commissioners plan to keep open
the nature center at McGough Park.
City officials had proposed closing the center at the
park because of budget constraints, but they now
plan to add funding for the center in their proposed
budget for the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.
"My intent in this budget process is to keep the na-
ture center open," said Mayor Pat Gerard at the City
Commission's Aug. 19 work session on the proposed
budget. "Just to go on record with that."
Many people who use the park, which is located
on 146h Street North just north of Walsingham
Road, have pleaded with commissioners to keep open
the center. A new organization called Friend of Mc-
Gough, Bonner and the Nature Preserve has been
searching for additional funding for the park. Resi-
dents have touted the center's educational value to

$55,800, city records say.

The agency has worked well with the city, he said,
in terms of allowing the city to have meetings with
the agency to discuss the issue.
"At this point it is still premature to know what the
total impact will be to the city," he said.
Certain portions of the Nature Preserve have been
closed because of concerns about arsenic contamina-
The action stems from elevated levels of arsenic
found in 2004 in isolated areas of the preserve.
The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropoli-

nando, with unemployment of 14.3 percent;
Hillsborough, 12.2 percent, Pasco, 12.9 percent;

The unemployment rate for the local metro area

The state unemployment rose marginally, 11.5
percent as compared to 11.4 percent in June.
The national unemployment rate for July was 9.5.
By SUZETTE PORTER
Unemployment in July rose from 11.6 to 11.8
percent in Pinellas County and the Tampa-St. Pe-

the biggest loss in the state.
July's unemployment numbers for Pinellas
County from the state Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation show an increase of 2,435 in the overall
labor force. The state reported the county's labor
force totaled 451,618 in July as compared to
449,183 in June.
In addition, more people were reported as em-

Dempsey noted that taxes lost by local govem-

He said claims for real estate losses would come
from a separate fund but it would not be part of the
mainstream claims process.
Dempsey added that BP has committed $500 mil-
lion for a Gulf of Mexcico research program and com-
mitted $52 million to behavioral health around the

When asked if he felt news coverage of the oil spill
"scared" people away from Pinellas beaches, Brown
said the newspaper's posture would not change.
"Our first obligation is to news and we're not
going to soft-pedal," Brown said. "Our job is to get

Barnet explained that skimmers were effective
and the dispersants reduced the surface oil "basi-
cally into soup." He said booming was ineffective.
"Booming causes more damage than good," said
Bamnet. "Whhen a storm comes in it can get wrapped
around trees and (boat) anchors get tangled in it."
Dempsey said the use of dispersants came about
after a lengthy discussion, which included the EPA.

defended BP's efforts in that critical area.
"T~he claims process continues to be a large por-

TREASURE ISIAND City commissioners moved
forward Aug. 17 on a staff recommendation to
award a contract to Gator Dredging of Pinellas Park
to provide beach sharing services as part of its
beach erosion emergency restoration plan.
The plan would be put into play in the event of a
hurricane or a major weather event that causes
damage to the city's beaches. Normally, state and
federal funds would be used for such purposes, but
that process would take as long as 18 months to
two years to complete.
If necessary, up to 134,000 cubic yards of sand
from the city's widest beaches would be transferred
to areas damaged by weather, such as the north
end of the island at Sunshine Beach. The work
would be complete within 90 days.
"This is being done with the thought of (ultimate-
ly) being reimbursed by the state and federal au-
thorities," said Mayor Bob Minning.
Cliff Truitt, director of engineering for Coastal
Technology Corp., which is acting as a consultant
in the process, said a wedge of sand would be re-
moved leaving a minimum of 250 feet of beach after
the borrow area is removed.
Gator Dredging estimated its services at
Commissioner Phil Collins asked how Gator can
arrive at the price without knowing in advance how
much damage there will be.
'Wer gave them an estimate of 65,000 to 134,000
yards, in that range," said Truitt. "T~hey worked the
estimate from that."
The sticking point in the discussion surfaced
over a performance bond required by the city for
any project involving a cost of $100,000 or more.
The city would pay Gator $22,500 for the first
year and $ 18,000 the second year of the contract to
purchase the bond. The bond would pay Treasure
Island in the event Gator fails to show up when
asked or doesn't complete the work.
Collins wondered why the city must pay for a
bond to guarantee that Gator shows up.
Commissioner Alan Bildz wondered if the city
should go with another company that requires a
smaller bond "for something we might not ever
City Manager Reid Silverboard suggested putting
a statement in the performance bond ordinance
that would waive the performance bond require-
"That way, we can move ahead and enter into a
contract with Gator," Silverboard said.
Commissioners agreed and the proposal will be
heard next as an agenda item.
In other action, commissioners:
*Moved forward on a request by the police de-
partment to purchase a used late model car for the
Criminal Investigation Division. Funding in the
amount of $3,720 would come from the Police For-
feiture Fund, $1,280 from general fund and $7,000
from $7,000 budgeted in the police department ac-
count. Total cost shall not exceed $12,000.
*Moved ahead on a resolution authorizing a rate
increase for city attorney Maura Kiefer. Her current
monthly retainer is $3,247 with an hourly rate of
$110 for litigation and nonlitigation matters. Kiefer
is requesting an increase to $150 per hour for liti-
gation-related matters and $125 for nonlitigation
affairs. Since being appointed city attorney six
years ago, she has received one retainer increase
and one hourly rate increase.
*Moved forward on a resolution authorizing an
interlocal agreement with the Pinellas Planning
Council for planning and mapping services. The
agreement is necessary for planning and zoning up-
dates to the city's comprehensive plan.
BUDGET, from page 1A
situation did not look promising due to the variety
Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard
said parking of RVs was a good example of code dif-
"Some allow them to be parked in the front and
side of a residence; another side but not the front.
Some allow the side with a visual barrier," he said.
LaSala added fence heights, grass heights and
other landscape standards to the list of differences.
Potential solutions for the future include chang-
ing county code to allow for enclaves within cities to
adhere to city code, adding overlays on the county
map to show jurisdiction within different areas and
The commissioners also voted to restore
$120,000 to the drug court budget. The concern
was without the additional funding, the burden of
expense would shift to the jails.
Drug court provides substance abuse treatment
as an alternative to incarceration.
In 2009, drug court received $758,000 from the
county. In 2010, the budget was cut to $600,000.
LaSala's budget proposed an additional cut of
$120,000 to $480,000, which the commissioners
said was too much.
Commissioner Susan Latvala said the drug prob-
lem was worse now than ever before.
"This is a small amount of money," she said.
County budget director John Woodruff suggested
taking the money for drug court and code enforce-
ment from the $20 million stabilization reserve
social action funding
Homeless outreach and social action funding
also caught the commissioner's attention. The pro-
posed budget includes $1 million in nonrecurring
costs for homeless services. Half, or $500,000, is
for Pinellas Hope. The other half will go toward
restoring funding in areas staff had earmarked for
Three social workers positions for the homeless
street outreach teams will be restored at a cost of
$180,000; $120,000 will go to fund outreach in the
north county, $160,000 for social action funding
and $40,000 will go to Tumning Point.
The next steps
The Pinellas County Property Appraiser began
mailing Truth in Millage Notices to property owners
Aug. 23. The millage rates on the TRIM notice repre-
sent the highest amount the different governmental
agencies can charge. Pinellas County is one of sev-
eral that tax property owners pay for services.
Pinellas County commissioners will make the
final determination on millage rates and the pro-
posed budget during two public hearings set for
Sept. 7 and 21. The millage rates and final budget
will be adopted on Sept. 21.

Armed robber caught
PALM HARBOR Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies have ar-
rested a suspect accused of an armed robbery at the 7-11 con-
venience store at 100 Palm Harbor Blvd.
According to a sheriffs report, deputies responded to the rob-
bery at about 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 19. The suspect had entered
the store, approached the clerk, implied a weapon, and demand-
ed cash, the report said. The clerk complied and handed the
suspect the cash drawer. The suspect took the cash and fled out
of the front door, and the clerk exited out of the back door. The
suspect was then seen heading south on Alt. U.S. 19 in a white
Toyota Ray 4, the report said.
Deputies responded and searched the area with the help of
the flight unit but were initially unable to locate the suspect. A
deputy later spotted the vehicle matching the description
speeding near County Road 1 and Curlew Road. The deputy
stopped the suspect at Main Street and Virginia Street in
Dunedin. The driver's clothes matched the description of the
subject described by the victim, and the stolen money was
found in the vehicle
Raymond Arzuaga, 30, of Tampa was charged with armed rob-

Man charged with stealing from mom
DUNEDIN A Dunedin man was arrested Aug. 12 and is ac-
cused of stealing $264,036 from his 91-year-old mother, accord-
ing to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report.
Detectives began the investigation in August 2009 when the
victim's daughter told them that her brother, Dwight Jones, 56,
of Dunedin, was taking advantage of their mother. According to
the report, he had manipulated the mother into obtaining two
equity lines of credit against the property she owns.
The investigation revealed that in June of 2004 and November
of 2004, Jones used deception and misrepresentations to obtain
funds, assets and property belonging to his mother with a value
of $264,036. This was done while he was acting in a position of
trust and confidence as his mother's "power of attorney." Includ-
ing in that amount of money are two home equity lines of credit
owed to Bank of America of more than $222,000, leaving the
victim with debt higher than the value of her once paid for pri-
mary residence, the report said.
Jones also reportedly used his mother's excellent credit rating
and zero credit card balance history to run up balances of
$16,000 on a Discover Card and $25,000 on a JPMorgan Chase
Master Card, the report said. To hide the charges, Jones had the
bills sent to his home, keeping his mother from finding out what
he was doing. As a result, JPMorgan/Chase is taking legal ac-
tion against Jones and his mother and has frozen parts of her
remaining financial assets.
The victim now faces countless calls from creditors, ruined
credit, and has had to retain an attorney to try to keep her
home that she has lived in since 1965.
Jones is charged with theft from a person 65 and older and is
being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Pinellas Park Beacon
gets new editor
Juliana Torres, a former staff writer for the
Osceola News-Gazette in Osceola County, is the
new editor of the Pinellas Park Beacon.
Torres succeeds Thomas Michalski, who retired
this week after five years as editor of the Beacon.
Michalski was the first editor of the Pinellas Park
Beacon, one of six weeklies published by Tampa
As editor, Michalski covered local government
and police news, wrote feature stories, designed
the paper and took photos.
"T~homas is a veteran newsman who was dedi-
cated to his job, and it showed," Executive Editor
Tom Germond said. "His commitment to Pinellas
Park was instrumental in launching the Beacon
and attracting and maintaining a solid base of
readers and advertisers. I'll miss his work ethic, his
enthusiasm and his sense of humor."
Michalski and his wife, Pat, live in st. Peters-
Torres covered Kissimmee and st. Cloud city
governments as well as crime in greater Orlando as
a reporter for the Osceola News-Gazette from
March 2007 to June 2010.
She was also a writer for Hola Osceola, reporting
on local news for the Spanish-speaking community
in greater Orlando.
Torres has won several Florida Press Association
awards while covering stories beyond her assigned
beat. She graduated from the University of Texas at
Austin with a bachelor's degree in print journalism
and a bachelor's degree in Spanish.
"We're excited to have Juliana on our staff," Ger-
mond said. "I'm confident she'll be committed to
helping us put out great community newspapers."

Gardeners are getting ready for vegetable season.
The best location is full sun; the worst location
would be under trees. The majority of earth in the
area is sand. Veg-
etables need soil.
There lies the Ga & e~

feed my family,
would clean the cow barn and bring the manure
spreader to my back yard and let it fly. When spring
came, all I needed to do was till and plant; harvest
My first garden in Florida was not exactly suc-
cessful. Although I had added many bags of store-
bought composted manure, it took years for my
composting of kitchen scraps and paper to produce
a black, fertile soil. There is no rest, however, and
composted manure is added regularly during the
It's not too late to prepare for a cool-season veg-
etable garden. For a ground-level garden, delineate
the area with landscape timber, put thick sections
of newspaper over the soil to smother the grass and
weeds. Add composted and humus material to just
above the height of the timber. It will settle with rain
in a short time. By October when the weather cools
a bit, the garden will be ready to plant. Just remem-
ber to continue to top dress or add fertile compost
or fertilizer as the plants grow.
To enjoy gardening at waist level, add landscape
timbers to desired height. To keep them from falling,
drill holes to put rebar through them all. To keep
soil from squeezing out the sides, they can be lined
with plastic, keeping the bottom clear for drainage.
These raised beds make gardening much easier on
your body. As a raised bed requires a lot more soil,
free yard waste can be put at the bottom of the bed.
A foot or more can be used in 3-foot high bed as it
will break down. This creates good drainage and will
eventually be good humus.
Follow the sun and put your garden in five to six
hours of sunlight. A neighbor is doing just that. The
landscape timber is being laid out; the grass will be
removed to grow on another property. The bed will
be filled and irrigation planned. More about garden
conversion will be in the next column.

water resources projects through the southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District can begin applying online.
The application is available at www.WaterMatters.org/schoolgrants.
Grant applications are due Sept. 10.
The District's Splash! grants provide teachers with funding for class-
room projects on water quality, water conservation, alternative
sources, water supply, flood protection or watersheds. The goal of the
school grant program is to promote hands-on water education that
teaches students about their local watersheds and the freshwater re-
sources within them.
Splash! grants are available for public, private, charter and home
school groups and provide up to $5,000 per school on a reimburse-
ment basis only.
Last year the District awarded Splash! grants to 209 educators
reaching more than 113,000 students with school-based water proj-
Past school grant projects include student monitoring of local water
quality, environmental field trips, student-designed butterfly gardens
and short videos promoting awareness of water-conserving practices.
In addition to school grants, the district offers teacher professional
development, classroom presentations, virtual watershed excursions
and curriculum tools. Free water education materials can be ordered
Online at www.WaterMatters.org/publications.
For more information, call Mary Margaret Hull, district lead youth
education coordinator, at 800-423-1476, ext. 4774.
LARGO The Caregivers Support Network awarded three $1,000
Scholarships at a recent luncheon at Royal Palms.
The Richard Besser Caregiving Youth Scholarship went to Kaylene
Fairchild, who recently graduated from Gibbs High School. Vera Bess-
er, who established the scholarship, was a school teacher who died
this year at 98 years old.
The Cookie Miller Memorial Scholarship went to Megan Leslie who
has finished her freshman year at the University of Central Florida.
The Cookie Miller Memorial Scholarship also went to Grace senatra
who recently graduated from Clearwater High School.
Guests had the opportunity to meet the very deserving youths and
hear them read their application essays. The students were caregivers
for a sibling that was blind and disabled, a mother with many health is-
sues and a mother whom she cared for until she died from health prob-
lems while she was still in middle school.
The Caregivers Support Network is in partnership with the Pinellas
County School District also provides the program, the Caregiving Youth
Project of Pinellas that identifies and supports youth caregivers and
looks to help students in our community.

Thne $5,000 grant will go toward providing cancer education for
children, teaching them a healthy diet, how to exercise, and how to
live an overall healthy lifestyle.
During MLB All-Star Week festivities, 15 clubs across Major
League Baseball asked fans to join them in making a difference in
America's communities as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project.
Each Club outlined an idea from creating Milwaukee's first
universally-accessible baseball league for those with a physical or
mental disability to cultivating an urban garden in Pittsburgh that
would grow fruits and vegetables to be donated to various local
nonprofit organizations to feed the hungry. .
Fans voted online and via text message for the idea that they felt
should win the $200,000 Pepsi Refresh grant. During the five week
voting period, nearly 2 million votes were cast. Fans can visit
mlb.com/pepsirefresh for more information on the winning idea
and the Pepsi Refresh Project.
'Thnis $5,000 grant is going to be very impactful for the Mofftt
Cancer Center as they educate children on how to live healthy
lives," said Evan Longoria. "I want to express my appreciation to all
of the Rays fans who supported this cause throughout the voting
The Minnesota Twins captured the most votes, earning a
$200,000 grant to Thne Courage Center's Rolling Twins wheelchair
softball team that the Twins will receive, Pepsi will provide $5,000
to each of the other 13 teams to help fund their ideas.
The Pepsi Refresh Project is a groundbreaking effort to foster in-
novation in social good that will award more than $20 million this
year to fund great ideas that help impact the world.
Throughout 2010, Pepsi will fund ideas that will move the world
forward in six categories: health, arts and culture, food and shel-
ter, the planet, neighborhoods and education.
The Pepsi Refresh Project, which launched Jan. 13, features sig-
nificant social engagement around people and the power of ideas.
People are encouraged to submit their ideas and to cast a vote for
their favorite ideas at www.refresheverything.com.

With the full moon approaching, now is the time
to target mangrove snapper.
Offshore reefs and inland bridges are both good
places to target snapper right now, however, typical-
ly the farther offshore you fish the larger the snap-
tend to fish and begin the chumming process. De-
ploying a quality chum block will make all the differ-
ence. Combine that with a constant flow of free
pilchards and soon enough you'll have the snapper
balled up and working bait right behind the boat.
As a rule of thumb the larger snapper will hang
closer to the surface, so free-lining your bait will
look the most natural to these larger, more wary
fish. Free-lining requires you to pay close attention
to how your bait looks as its falling natural toward
If you don't allow your batt to fall at the same rate
as those you're throwing out for chum, the snapper
will refuse you're offering every time.
For the terminal end definitely think smaller and
lighter. Number one hooks and long stretch of 15-
or 20-pound leader and 10- or 15-pound braided
If current speed is too strong to allow for free-lin-
ing or you're trying to get the kids involved, try
using a small egg sinker anywhere from an 1/8 to a
1/2 ounce at the most.

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach
No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.
Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

Health and Safety
Once hopeful that the Belleview Biltmore Resort was well on the way
to being restored to its fonner grandeur as the White Queen of the Gulf'
Belleair officials and residents increasingly have felt they've been left at
the altar- and for good reason.
More than a year after the hotel closed and months since all legal is-
sues regarding development plans for the Biltmore and Cabana Club
on Sand Key were resolved, seemingly clearing the way for the project
to finally proceed, nothing has been done. The project remains at a
complete standstill. What's worse, straight answers from anyone asso-
ciated with the Biltmore about its future have been few and far be-
Joseph Penner, the longtime Biltmore front man for Latitude Man-
agement Real Estate Investors (fonnerly known as Legg Mason Real Es-
tate Investors) recently revealed in a letter to the Belleair Bee editor that
he is no longer an employee of Latitude Management. This startling rev-
elation was preceded by just a few days by a letter to the editor from
Penner blaming the economic downturn for "the situation" and claim-
ing LMREI is "committed to this unique property that is so much a part
of the community" while "working hard to find a resolution." No
specifies were offered. That is a huge problem for anyone trying to keep
the faith. The uncertainty and mistrust re ading the Biltmore's future
understandably have grown with each passing day.
The town of Belleair approved elaborate and impressive renovation
plans for the Biltmore in good faith, though all along there have been
those who doubted the extensive restoration would ever see fruition. It
appears the skeptics might have been right, though hopefully not. One
thing appears certain; the completion date of 2012 is out the window.
The historic and once magnificent Belleview Biltmore has deteriorat-
ed to the point that it is nothing but a monumental eyesore and daily
irritant to nearby residents, vacant behind a chain-linked fence in the
midst of a beautiful town that takes pride in its upscale real estate,
wholesome family atmosphere, and scenic vistas.
Belleair Mayor Gary Katica was able to reach Glenn Sonnenberg,
president of Latitude Management, on Monday and was told LMREI
would be buying out the mortgage from the previous Biltmore owner in
six weeks. At least that's some information. The town is willing to pay
for an engineer with expertise on wood structures to check the place
out. That is possible, but LMREI has made it clear repairs of any sort
are out of the question.
Latitude Management must continue to conununicate with town offi-
cials enough with the vague platitudes. Honest answers that the citi-
zens and elected officials of Belleair deserve are long overdue. What is
really going on? Latitude Management has exhibited extremely poor
taste, to put it mildly, in its handling of what many in town and else-
where had hoped would once again be a beautiful and valuable asset to
Why does Seminole allow speed traps?
I believe that (Seminole) City Manager Frank Edmunds' contract
should not be extended.
Last year, I contacted Mayor Jinrny Johnson, Edmunds and the
rest of the City Council with questions related to the increase in the
number of police running speed traps through Seminole. I was met
with resistance to my questions. After a month of requesting and pay-
ing for infonnation, I found out that the amount of money the city of
Seminole receives from the issuance of traffic tickets has increased
over 500 percent.
In 1999 the City collected $38,922. Between 2007 and 2008 the city
collected $261,146 and $246,127 respectively. I was unable to obtain
infonnation for 2009/2010.
With the limited infonnation that I was able to obtain from the Pinel-
las County Sheriffs Office, it appears that the number of accidents
hasn't decreased, in fact it may have increased with the increase of po-
lice services in the area. At a minimum it hasn't changed. So the ques-
tion still is, why an increase in speed traps throughout seminole? If
Edmunds is claiming that it is keeping the conununity safer then why
do they not have documented evidence to support that?
There is no denying that the increase in revenue to the city from
tickets has increased over 500 percent. Is running speed traps an ethi-
cal way of making money for the city of Seminole? I will be honest.
After living in Seminole for about 30 years I received a ticket at the
speed trap across from Home Depot. I am sure many of the residents
know exactly what I am talking about. I believe many of our Seminole
mesident hve loa benb tketed ther and$4 is m seee boow. o
thing to take lightly.
If the city of Seminole is trying to make money off of its citizens by
setting up speed traps, then I think they are acting unethically. If not,
then do they have the documented evidence to support the benefits
they are claiming?
If the city has its residents in its best interest then why aren't they
looking at these areas where so many people are repeatedly getting
tickets? What is wrong with these areas that creates a situation where
mostly good, honest, hard-working people are in excess of the posted
Has the city made any effort to look into this in order to help its citi-
zens to drive safely instead of hitting them with outrageous fines and
making a profit off of it? Perhaps installing flashing lights, a digital
board showing your speed or small bumps on the road that remind
drivers to slow down would work. If what the city wants is for drivers
to slow down, then how come they have put no effort into installing de-
vices on the road to help bring awareness to the drivers? I believe it is
because it would decrease the number of tickets and thus the amount
of revenue they are making.
I don't agree that any of our council members, mayor or city manag-
er' ctrat sh Ild be extended if they are trying to make money
Finally, the only council person who was willing to meet with me to
hear my concerns was Patricia Plantamura. I appreciated the fact that
she made herself available to me. I believe that any good leader or rep-
resentative of the people should be willing to meet with residents to
talk, if requested.
Good stuff going on
There is good news in the city of Seminole. Although we all face
tough economic times these days, there is reason to be excited regard-
ing some of the things that are going on in Seminole.
Not the least of which is the new Aldi store on Seminole Boulevard
rapidly approaching completion. There is signage indicating a new
Cody's Original Roadhouse restaurant on Park street, and talk of a
new CVS in the same plaza.
The city recently opened two new buildings on 70th Avenue North
and a contractor has purchased land on the east end of 70th Avenue,
on Long Bayou, slated for a future construction project.
The new Fresh Market concept at seminole Mall is under way, and
attendance has been very strong. Even in this current difficult econo-
my there is good reason to get excited about the many positive things
going on in the city of Seminole.

Beacon, August 26, 2010
Some days I entertain myself by playing
"what if." I'm sure you do, too. All that's re-
quired is that you take an event and then
speculate how life might have been different
if one small (or large) aspect had been
changed. What if I had pursued Rosemary
instead of Gilda? What if I had gone to work
for IBM instead of Joe's gas station?
Today let's focus on the Twin Towers dis-
aster. What if the 9/11 terrorists had not
been Muslims? What if their backgrounds
were so scattered that no common denomi-
nator except for their dislike of America -
could be found? Let's say one was a Luther-
an from Minneapolis; one was born in Zam-
bia; a third was a Chinese Buddhist; a
fourth was an Australian soldier of fortune.
And so on.
My point is this: with the terrorists so
mixed, who would we have ended up hating
and fearing? Hatred and fear usually re-
quire a fixed, well-defined target. That's why
it has been so convenient and easy in the
past nine years to identify our enemies: they
All Muslims, anywhere on earth? No. Just
the bad Muslims, the extremists. And how
do you tell an extremist from a moderate?
That's where the tough part begins. Govern-
ments around the world struggle with that
question every day.
And what if the 9/11 terrorists were not
tied to Al gaeda or any other known anti-
western group? What if their operating base
in September 2001 could not be pinpoint-
ed? Who could we shoot at and bomb if we
didn't even know where they were? Immedi-
ately after the 9/11 attack, we learned that
Al gaeda was centered in Afghanistan.
Therefore we attacked Afghanistan. If our
intelligence operatives had said "the bad
guys are based in Kansas City," I guess we'd
have attacked Kansas City. We might have
had better luck than we've had in
Afghanistan, don't you suppose?
of blood and bankruptcy.
I want to vomit each time I see news re-
ports of U.S. forces sent into Mideast vil-
lages not to find and destroy enemy
insurgents, but to "stabilize" the political
and cultural environment of the immediate
area. Our warriors should not be required
to be social workers, psychologists or good-
"But we cannot win the Mideast conflict
until we have won the hearts and minds of
the people," say proponents of a long-tenn
(i.e., eternal) U.S. presence in the Mideast.
Unfortunately, the inhabitants of Iraq and
Afghanistan are not illiterate natives waiting
for Christian missionaries to save their
souls. They are, to a large degree, tribesmen
loyal to local chieftains, not to any central
government. The plans and policies devised
in Washington and Kabul do not interest
village elders whose main concern is
whether food will arrive before the next
The most immediate question today is
how soon our troops can be removed from
the Mideast. Some people will regard our
withdrawal as a defeat. This is not true.
Passengers on the sinkmng Titanic did not
view themselves as defeated when they
abandoned ship. They considered them-
selves dadblamed lucky just to get into a
lifeboat. That's our position in the Mideast
Even with our troops safely home, the
problem of Muslim extremists will remain
for many years to come. I don't know what
the final solution will be, but I'm sure it
does not lie in inflicting blanket mistrust
and hatred against every Muslim we meet. If
you think otherwise, why don't you start
with Abdul, that friendly old guy who runs
the convenience store down the street? see
how great it makes you feel.

My point is this: what we've "known"
about the identities and whereabouts of
Mideast terrorists has not done us much
good. Even if their names and operating
bases had been completely changed every
week, would we be any more confused about
our ultimate goals than we are now? Query,
if someone asked you to write down, as
specifically as you can, what are the West's
objectives in the Mideast (or any fragment
thereof), could you do it? I couldn't.
As I read about our National Guard and
other military units repeatedly being sent to
Iraq and Afghanistan (some of them for the
fifth time), my respect and admiration for
these young men and women has never
been higher. But so are my anger and
heartache, stemming from the stupidity of
the leaders who authorized the first as-
saults on Iraq, in 2003, and the failure of
the leaders who followed to realize the West
was being suckered into an endless disaster

down to avoid the pothole and swerve to go around it.
About that artwork
Guess Largo can't think of everything.
From Thne Washington Times, Aug. 15. Excerpt: "In April, the
president of the poverty-stricken nation of Senegal unveiled what
he boasts is the world's 'highest statue' a $24 million bronze art-
work called 'Afhican Renaissance' that measures slightly taller than
the Statue of Liberty. Next month, a U.S. government aid agency is
scheduled to begin delivery of $540 million in taxpayer money
under a program that ...
I'll wager Largo commissioners are wondering: "Why didn't we
think of that?"
Government run amuck
After a recent walk through Momingside Estates subdivision in
Cleanvater's East end I was shocked to see what looks like an inva-
sion of 12-foot-long, 4-foot-wide at the center, eyebrow shaped
"crazy" curbs all along the bike path on Momingside Boulevard.
What are Clearwater officials thinking?
Thne curbs, which have room for landscaping inside, block the
bike path on the side thus forcing kids on bicycles into the center
of the road. Also, the curbs have caused Momingside residents to
lose hundreds of on-street parking spaces. Would you buy a house
with a crazy curb in front of it?
I know I wouldn't. In my view, these crazy curbs have lowered
property values at Momingside Estates.
More drunken sailor spending from Cleanvater city hall. These
kid killer crazy curbs are another example of government run

Or join a gnat rescue group.
I love the newspaper business. I go back to
the days of No. 2 copy pencils, glue pots and
the smell of hot lead from linotype machines.
Being a journalist is an education. You witness
life in the raw, see people at their very best and
their worst, and observe in real life what most
people only read about or see on television.
I'll miss the people, the banter and the ex-
citement. Over the years, especially while cov-
ering beats in New York and New Jersey, I met
people from all walks of life, including a few

They either love him or hate him.
That's what I've heard from readers
throughout the years about Carl Hiassen'
a Miami Herald columnist known for his
stinging commentary on sleazy politicians,
development run amok and shady goings-
on in the Sunshine State.
We discontinued running Hiassen's
columns a couple of years ago because of
space limitations in the paper and budget
constraints. It was a business decision.
But as part of the recent redesign of our
newspapers to a broadsheet format, we
have set aside more space, as needed, for
columns and letters to the editor. Conse-
quently, we have decided to run Hiassen's
columns again as often as possible and
articles from other columnists.
Bear in mind, Hiassen takes book tours
so he doesn't submit weekly columns.
Such is the case this week; Hiassen will
not be filing a column until later this
and "Nature Girl." "Strip Tease" was re-
leased as a feature film in 1997, starring
Demi Moore and Burt Reynolds.
For decades, commentary pages have
been near and dear to my heart. I believe
that newspapers large and small have an
obligation to provide informed opinion
pieces on a broad range of topics as well as
give readers a forum to express their opin-
I can't count how many times readers
have called or e-mailed me to say they will
no longer read our papers if we continue to
run certain columnists' articles. That's to
be expected; the best columnists, such as
Hiassen, stir emotions and don't shy away
I wish, however, that more readers who
are offended by our columnists would vent
their anger in other ways, such as writing a
scathing rebuttal in a letter to the editor.
Get mad and get even.
Hiassen has won numerous awards, in-
cluding the Green Eyeshade Award for in-
vestigative reporting in 1980 and
humorous commentary in 1986, 1987 and
1997 and the first and second place Florida
Society of Newspaper Editors Awards in
1989 and 1997, respectively.
He is also known for his wacky novels,
such as "Tourist Season," which was pub-
lished in 1986. His other works include:
"Double Whammy," "Skin Tight," "Native
Tongue," "Strip Tease," "Stormy Weather,"
"Lucky You," "Sick Puppy," "Skinny Dip"
What do you think?
Please type letters to the editor (or print legibly) and include
your name, town of residence, phone number and signature
and mail to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd.,
Seminole, FL 33772. E-mails should include town of resi-
dence and telephone and be sent to

er's phone number.
Here are some more guidelines for letters:
*Letters are printed on a first-come, first-served basis.
They may be edited to correct grammar, spelling and factual
errors. They also may be edited for clarity.
*Please keep letters to editor to 500 words. Longer letters may
be cut due to space limitations.
*Letters should address issues or current events. Please refrain
from making unsubstantiated allegations. The newspaper will not
print letters that contain slanderous or racial statements.
Please do not use profanity.
We do not publish poetry or songs in letters to the editor.
Each writer may submit one letter per month.
We can't return letters to the editor.

Lake Seminole Presbyterian
plans fall programs
SEMINOLE Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church, located at 113th
Street and 86th Avenue, has many programs planned for the fall be-
ginning on Sunday, Sept. 12.
The church will resume its regularly-scheduled worship services on
the 12th. The 8:30 a.m. service will be less formal, the 10:30 a.m.
service will be a blend of traditional and contemporary worship and
The sermons will be based on Psalms 147:1.
The church also will hold a Blessing of the Backpacks for our
school-age children, and a dedication of teachers/students for the
Christian education programs. The community is invited.
The church's theme this year is "Awesome Adventures: God's People
on the Move." Pastor Robert Wierenga will begin photo-journalistic
presentations on "T~he Holy Land Today," based on his three-week visit
to the region. During this time, he and his wife, Helen, traveled exten-
sively in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine. They will present a first-hand
experience of what is happening today in this troubled land.
They were able to meet and talk with Israeli Jews, Palestinian
Christians, and Arab Muslims. The community is invited Sundays at
9:30 a.m., September through December.

Ashley Bell stars as Nell Sweetzer in "The Last Exorcism."
Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE
A number of new movie releases will hit theaters this week, includ-
ing the following films opening in wide release:
'The Last Exorcism'
Genre: Horror and drama
Cast: Patrick Fabian, Ashley Bell, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum and
Caleb Landry Jones
Director: Daniel Stanun
When he arrives on the rural Louisiana fann of Louis Sweetzer, the
Rev. Cotton Marcus expects to perfonn just another routine "exorcism"
on a disturbed religious fanatic.
An earnest fundamentalist, Sweetzer has contacted the charismatic
preacher as a last resort, certain his teenage daughter Nell is pos-
sessed by a demon who must be exorcised before their terrifying ordeal
ends in unimaginable tragedy.
Buckling under the weight of his conscience after years of parting
desperate believers with their money, Marcus and his crew plan to film
a confessionary documentary of this, his last exorcism. But upon ar-
riving at the already blood-drenched family fann, it is soon clear that
nothing could have prepared him for the true evil he encounters there.

before it is too late.
Genre: Action and crime
Cast: Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hemnandez and Tip

"Takers" takes audiences into the world of a notorious group of
criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Chris-
tensen and Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off
perfectly executed bank robberies.
They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and
laying low between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last

zine's Top 200 chart and has already spawned the multi-week No. 1
smash hit songs "Need You Now" and "American Honey." Following on

decades after their first concert together in front of the multitudes at
Woodstock, Crosby, Stills and Nash take to the road again for three
months of dates in the United States. CSN's music became a comer-
stone of rock and roll with their self-titled 1969 debut LP, now one of
Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." "Delja Vu," another
"500 Greatest," followed the first album from the group's four-man
line-up with Neil Young. Ever since, through changing times and vari-
ous configurations, Crosby, Stills and Nash have continued to tour
and record as "three together." In June of last year, CSN released
"Demos" on Rhino Records. Featuring 12 previously unreleased tracks
recorded between 1968 and 1971, "Demos" spotlights destined-to-be-
classic songs later heard on CSN's group and solo titles. The disc
opens with the trio harmonizing on "Marrakesh Express," recorded
four months before the song came out on the group's self-titled 1969
debut LP. Other rarities include seminal takes on "Ahnost Cut My
Hair," "Chicago," "Love The One You're With," "Sleep Song" and "Long

*"A Couple of Blaguards," Aug. 24-29, in the
Raymond James Thneatre, 163 Third St. N. Perfor-
mances are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thnursday,

Company's Susan R. Hough Cabaret and After
Hours series, the comedy will star patron favorite
Howard Platt and newcomer Jarlath Conroy.
Written by Frank McCourt, who is best known
for his novel "Angela's Ashes," and Malachy Mc-
Court, "A Couple of Blaguards" tells the brother's
tales of boyhood in Limerick and early adulthood
as immigrants in New York. While pathos lurks
beneath the humorous observations of behavior
under the pressure of poverty, bigotry and adver-
sity, the chief intent of the stories of childhood
privation, escape and adult misadventure is sim-
ply to laugh at life's absurdities.

neth Derby as her once and maybe future lover,

1. 100,000-mile/7 year powertrain limited warranty. Unlike many warranties, it is fully
transferable, increasing resale value when you sell your car. And there is a zero-dollar
deductible, which means NO charge for warranty service. Under many other warranties,
you'll discover a $50 or $75 charge for every item that requires attention.
2. 24/7 Roadside Assistance, available 24 hours a day during the first 36,000-mile/3-year
new vehicle limited warranty period. A free loaner car for up to five days during the
36,000-mile/3-year new vehicle limited warranty period for warranty covered repairs.
3. Other manufacturers may also claim they have a "100,000-mile warranty" But when you
look at the fine print, you'll see that Suzuki really is "America's #1 Warranty."
