SEMINOLE Should the need
arise to respond to a hazardous
materials situation in the imme-
diate area, Seminole Fire Rescue
is one of five fire departments in
Pinellas County that is qualified
to do the job.
Fire units from Seminole,
Largo, Pinellas Park, St. Peters-
burg and Palm Harbor make up
the Pinellas County Hazardous
Materials Response Team but it's
not a cheap venture.
Cities that contract with the
county for this service are re-
quired to send their firefighters
through six training per year
and new firefighters who are as-
signed to hazardous materials
unit must go through an initial
160 hours of training to be on the
team.
It all gets expensive for cities
because the training forces
changes in schedules, which
forces overtime in many in-
stances.
However, thanks to action by
the City Council Aug. 24, Semi-
nole will be able to recoup some
of that cost.
Councilors voted unanimously
to authorize City Manager Frank
Edmunds to enter into an inter-
local agreement with Pinellas
County for hazardous materials
response team training costs.
Acting Fire Chief George
Bessler said the cost of such
training varies, depending on
how many new firefighters be-
came part of the team and are re-
quired to take the 160-hour
training regimen.
"Some years you have to send
more (firefighters) than others,"
said Bessler. "Whhenever you take
a man off a shift, it requires a
move to maintain the same level
of emergency service offered."
That move is often overtime
compensation for someone else,
The interlocal agreement sets
in motion the ability for the indi-
vidual fire departments to be re-
imbursed to certain limits by the
county for the additional expense.
The maximum reimbursement

SEMINOLE City officials are waiting to see what
the new owners have planned for a 59-acre tract at
Bay Pines Boulevard and 100th Way.
City Manager Frank Edmunds said the former Bay
Pines Mobile Home Park, located across the street
from Bay Pines VA Health Care System, was pur-
chased Aug. 18 for $7.65 million by Kitson and Part-
ners, a Palm Beach Gardens-based residential and
commercial real estate investment and development
company.
The company's website lists Bay Pines as one of its
planned communities for mixed-use retail, residential,


"Probably not," he said. "It will probably be a long-
time hold like the Hutchinson property (behind Home
Depot)."
Kitson and Partners paid 80 percent less than the
$38.5 million paid by Bay Pines LP in May 2006.
Bay Pines LP, headed by local developer John Loder,
received approval on a development agreement in May
2007 for 1,119 condo units on the site that included a
zoning change from residential low medium/mobile
home to residential medium-15. The deal also called
for developers to allocxate land for a city station.
However, tough economic times forced Bay Pines LP
to suspend its plans and eventually the property went
back to General Motors Acceptance Corp.

in the center of the coaster? A photo of City Hall with a
flag flying in the background was featured in both.
After Jim Quinn and Thomas Barnhomn gave their
opinions on why the coaster with the banner across the
middle was better, Councilor John Counts perhaps put
the discussion in the correct context.
"I think they both look the same," Counts said. "Ei-
ther one is fine with me."
In the end, the decision was made to go with "option
2," which features the banner across the center of the
city hall photo, with a few minor tweaks.
More details on the event will be forthcoming as it
gets c oser.


In other workshop action, councilors:
*Decided not to move forward on a request by Semi-
nole resident Anthea Hirsch to receive approval to con-
struct "empty chair" memorials on roadways where
families have lost loved ones. "I think it would serve to
make Seminole a city with heart, and keep the fading
flowers and leaning crosses from making the roadsides
shabby," Hirsch wrote in a letter. Bamnhomn called the
letter very moving "but I believe it's the family that
mourns the loss the most and they should moumn that
loss in their own personal way." The rest of the council

SEMINOLE In mid-November, the city will celebrate
its 40th anniversary.
As part of that celebration, city officials want to hand
out a gift to residents, commemorating the event.
They chose drink coasters.
But like many decisions involving government lead-
ers, the design of those coasters requires input from
elected officials.
At an Aug. 24 city workshop the topic came up.
Should the city go with a coaster featuring a banner
proclaiming "1970 to 2010" at the top of the coaster or

Dr. Ann Weaver says dolphins in her

relationships.
Some of their relationships are super-

mingle at dusk in the rich radiating wa-
terways of John's Pass get the chance to
socialize with acquaintances and
strangers. Some, like commuters on the
same train schedule, may not actually
interact. Instead, they drift in one anoth-

Beacon, September 2, 2010


By SUZETTE PORTER

Pinellas County sheriffs deputies will be on the
roads and waterways this Labor Day weekend,
making sure everyone has a safe and happy holi-
day.
Cecilia Barreda with the sheriff s public infor-
mation office said deputies would be out in full
force to help create extra awareness to be safe
during the last summer holiday.
safety on the county's waterways will be one
area of focus. Barreda also reminded residents to
be careful around water of all kinds, including
backyard pools. Drowning and near-drowning ac-
cidents are not uncommon. Most can be prevent-
ed, she said.
The Center for Disease Control recommends
designating a responsible adult to watch young
children who are swimming or playing around
water. When young children are involved, an
adult should be within arm's reach at all times.
Adults should take care not to become distracted
by activities, such as reading, playing cards, talk-
ing on the phone or texting.
Boat injuries also increase during the summer
months and holiday weekends. The sheriffs ma-
rine unit takes advantage of the increase in


boater traffic to conduct its boating safety aware-
ness campaign and Operation Kid Float.
Deputies will be stopping vessels to conduct
safety inspections, and kids "caught" wearing
their life jackets will get an Operation Kid Float T-
shirt. Deputies also will be looking for boat opera-
tors who are impaired by drugs or alcohol.
According to 2009 statistics from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 18.5
percent of boating fatalities were caused by alco-
hol or drug use. In 2009, 65 people died in boat-
ing accidents in the state. Boaters falling
overboard and drowning was the main cause of
death.
Pinellas County is ranked No. 4 on the list of
top 10 counties reporting boating accidents in
2009. Of the 41 accidents reported in the county,
two were fatal, 21 were with injury and 18 with-
out injury. The top two causes were operator inat-
tention and no proper lookout. The primary type
of accident was a collision with a vessel followed
by a collision with a fixed object.
On the roadways
Pinellas County deputies also will be out in
force looking for impaired drivers and drivers
driving erratically, Barreda said.


"All our deputies will be paying extra special at-
tention looking for unsafe drivers," she said.
Pinellas County citizens and visitors are urged
to drive safely and to not drink and drive.
Deputies also will be taking part in the Florida
Highway Patrol's DUI Wolf Pack on the evening of
Friday, Sept. 3, through the early morning hours
of Sept. 4, Barreda said.
FHP troopers are participating in the national
Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest en-
forcement campaign. The campaign, which began
Aug. 20, continues through Labor Day, Sept. 6.
The purpose of the campaign is to reduce the
number of impaired drivers on Florida's roadways
in an effort to save lives, according to a press re-
lease. In 2008, 5,432 passenger vehicle drivers
age 21 to 34 were killed in motor vehicle crashes,
and 2,866 (53 percent) had illegal blood alcohol
concentrations, according to statistics from the
National Highway Administration, which sponsors
the national campaign.
"Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk. Not
only do you risk killing yourself or someone else,
but also the trauma and financial costs of a crash
or an arrest for impaired driving can be signifi-
cant," said FHP Director Col. John Czernis. "Vio-
lators often face jail time, the loss of their driver's


license, higher insurance rates, attorney fees,
time away from work and dozens of other expens-
es. Do not take the chance. Remember if you are
over the limit, you can expect to be under arrest."
FHP also will participate in Operation C.A.R.E.
(Combined Accident Reduction Effort) during the
Labor Day weekend.
Throughout the holiday, all uniformed FHP per-
sonnel, including those normally assigned to ad-
ministrative duties, will patrol interstates and
other major state roadways. Motorists are asked
to remember they can be pulled over and ticketed
for not wearing a seat belt.
Tow toGo
AAA Auto Club south and Budweiser provide a
free service to impaired drivers during holiday
weekends called Tow to Go. Available Sept. 3-6,
the free confidential program open to AAA mem-
bers and nonmembers will provide a ride and a
tow to impaired drivers who call 1-800-AAA-
HELP.
The program is available throughout Florida,
Georgia and parts of Tennessee. More than 1,900
called Tow to Go for help in 2009, and 5 percent
of those calls came in during the Labor Day holi-
day.

Floridians make a variety of Labor Day travel plans


By SUZETTE PORTER
AAA Auto Club South projects that 3.9 percent more Floridians will
travel this Labor Day weekend, as compared with 2009.
AAA says more than 1.6 million residents of the sunshine state will
take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home. The most common
mode of travel, 1.5 million, will be by automobile.
"Labor Day typically marks the end of summer travel, and we're see-
ing more people deciding to take one last summer trip before the fall,"


said Brent Hubele, vice president of AAA Travel. 'T~his is great news as
travel projections are up overall, not only the state and region, but in
the country as a whole."
AAA estimates a nationwide increase of 10 percent, or 34.4 million
more, will travel 50 miles away from home during 2010 holiday week-
end.
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is making a difference in where peo-
ple are planning to travel this year, although no oil has flowed into the
Gulf of Mexico since July 15.

CLEARWATER BEACH Work continues on an
interlocal agreement between 11 beach communi-
ties and Pinellas County that will open the door for
$35 million in Penny for Pinellas funds for Gulf
Boulevard improvements.
Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence told members
of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council on
Aug. 25 that terms of the deal are virtually complete
with payments to the beach towns scheduled to
begin in October 2012. The payments will continue
over a seven-year span through fiscal 2019.
'Whe'll work it out in September and execute it in
October," Lawrence said of the agreement.
Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala, who
was the guest speaker for the day, agreed and said
final approval by the county attorney would be the
last step.
"I think that's a great idea," he said, regarding
Lawrence's time frame. "Once we get it past the legal
beagles and we make sure it's in line with the intent
of the Penny (for Pinellas), it will be ready to go."
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning suggested
getting a bond counselor to look over the language
of the agreement to make sure it meets the criteria
necessary for towns to use it for bonding purposes.
Lawrence said he knew of a bond counselor that
could provide that service and would pursue it.
LaSala credited town leaders on the beaches for
helping him realize the importance of the agree-
ment, which dates back to 2007 when former coun-
ty Commissioner Bob Stewart pledged the money.
"I give Nick (Simons), Jim (Lawrence) and the city
managers on the beach credit for giving me a better
appreciation of the significance of this project,"
LaSala said. "One of the biggest pieces of our econo-
my are our beaches and tourism, which this plays
into directly."
Due to tight economic times, the funding process
will not begin until fiscal year 2013 and instead of
being paid out over five years it will be distributed to
towns over a seven year span.
"I think we've got the right solution in place under
the (economic) constraints were working under,"
LaSala said.
LaSala went on to say $35 million is a lot of
money, or not a lot of money, depending on how you
look at it. He suggested a unified effort by beach
towns on projects, such as the undergrounding of
utilities, to get the best results.
"Think in terms of a coordinated approach," he
said. "Its effects will be far more greater. Communi-
cate and coordinate as much as you can with that
money to have the biggest impact. You will lose an
opportunity if you don't go one step further."
LaSala said the county stands ready to help with
that effort but would leave that decision to the


beach communities.
Lawrence said the proposed interlocal agreement
calls for the county to pay out $3.5 million per year
the first four years of the deal and $7 million per
year over the final three years.
Lawrence said 11 sub-accounts would be opened
by the county for each beach town and on Oct. 1
each year the deal is in effect the amount each town
is to receive would be credited to its account.
Towns would still have to get approval each year
on how the money would be spent, Lawrence said.
The primary stipulation is it has to be tied in to
Gulf Boulevard and used for infrastructure.
The amount each city receives is based upon its
frontage along Gulf Boulevard.
Cleanvater will receive a total of $6.7 million; Bel-
leakr Beach, $2.9 million; Indian Rocks Beach, $4.1
million; Indian Shores, $4 million; Redington
Shores, $1.7 million; North Redington Beach, $1.2
million; Redington Beach, $1.6 million; Madeira
Beach, $3.3 million; Treasure Island, $3.8 million;
and St. Pete Beach, $5.7 million.
In other action:
*Carolyn Fries, chief operations officer of Bioplex,
an offshoot of the University of South Florida Col-
lege of Marine Science, solicited the support of
beach communities for a monitoring program for
the Gulf coast. Fries said Bioplex would monitor
chemical levels and the environmental impact to
sealife from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The
studies could be conducted as often as every two
weeks or as infrequently as every year, depending
on what the beach towns want. She said the cost to
study Pinellas County's 30 miles of coastline would
be $15,000 per study, which she wants BP to un-
derwrite. To get the grant from BP, Fries needs the
support of beach towns or the BIG-C as an entity.
The BIG-C representatives decided to move forward
on the proposal.
*Indian Shores Councilor Bill Smith reminded
BIG-C members that the Florida Shore and Beach
Preservation Association's annual convention is
Sept. 22-24 at the Clearwater Beach Hyatt. Smith
urged as many BIG-C members as possible to at-
tend.
*Clearwater City Councilor George Cretekos said
federal cutbacks may affect the proposed Sand Key
beach renourishment project in 2011. Renourish-
ment is dependent upon 60 percent of funding from
federal sources. If the funds are not found in time
for 2011, the project will be delayed a year when the
remainder of the federal money will be available,
Cretekos said. Other funding comes from the State
of Florida and Pinellas County tourist tax funds.
*Lawrence was named the BIG-C rep on the
Pinellas County Tourist Development Council, re-
placing North Redington Beach Mayor Bill Queen

TREASURE ISLAND Circuit Court Judge Antho-
ny Rondolino will hear arguments Sept. 16 for a writ
of mandamus against two city of Treasure Island of-
ficials in a continuing lawsuit between residents of
Sunset Beach and the city.
Writs of mandamus are used to force proper en-
forcement of zoning ordinances by public officials.
The suit names City Manager Reid Silverboard
and Neal Schwartz, the city's building official and

cheorii cl ec fie fe15S nset Beach home-
owners in December, was designed to determine
what, if any, violations of the city's zoning and land
use regulations have taken place and to what degree
Caddy's on the Waterfront is an "unlawful public
nuisance." It named the city and Caddy's on the
Waterfront as defendants.
The intent was to first seek a declaratory judg-
ment in Circuit Court and then injunctive relief of
any land-use or zoning violations. It targeted, among
other things, parking lots used by Caddy's owner
Tony Amico.
"The court has remanded the lawsuit from federal
to the local courts and we've refiled, dropping
Caddy's as a defendant," said Ray Green, one of the
Sunset Beach residents who filed the class-action
suit. "The judge (Rondolino) issued an alternate writ
demanding closing of all parking lots not in compli-
ance with city laws."
In effect, it has forced the city to shut down all
parking lots used by Caddy's that are not in compli-
ance with city zoning laws for a commercial venture.


rnoto Dy tuub IvCU;LUHL
Parking lots like this one across the street from
Caddy's on the Waterfront will no longer be able to
be used by Caddy's owner Tony Amico.
Green said the plaintiffs would continue the law-
suit "until the city is in compliance."
"If the city does (comply), we'll probably withdraw
the lawsuit," Green said. "Whe just want the city to do
what is right."
Amico says the ruling, if it stands, could have se-
rious consequences on his business. It would leave
the business with 45 parking spaces. About 150
parking spaces on seven nearby overflow parking
lots would not be available.
The order to close the parking lots takes effect im-
mediately, but a hearing on the issue is set Sept. 7
when the city will argue against it becoming perma-
nent.
Sunset Beach residents have long complained
about rowdy beachgoers and Caddy's patrons who
cause neighborhood problems.
Amico has worked diligently with city officials on
solutions, which included stepped-up police patrols
and the installation of security cameras in the area
of Caddy's this past spring.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH City Manager Chuck
Coward and his wife, Carol, a commissioner in Trea-
sure Island, who returned home Aug. 22 from a
cruise vacation on the Volga River in Russia, got
more than they bargained for when their Viking
Cruise Line vessel Kirov collided with a sand barge
and began taking on water.
The accident, which occurred in the early hours
of Aug. 18, eight days into the Cowards' 13-day
cruise on the Volga River, happened as most of the
passengers and crew slept.
Coward recounted, "We were asleep in our cabin
on the second level when crewmen began waking
passengers shortly after 3 a.m. We could hear the
grinding of metal on metal," he recalled, adding,
"T~here was no panic; the crew handled it very well."
The Kirov was sailing in Rybinsk Reservoir about
200 miles north of Moscow when the loaded sand
barge struck her and tore a long gash in the cruise
ship's hull just 10 feet from the Cowards' state
room.
"The first level (where the crew of approximately
100 slept) filled with water fairly quicidy and then


water began rising in the passageway by our room,"
Coward said.
As river barges were summoned to remove the
passengers and crew, "there was a report that
Americans on board had at first refused evacuation
because the rescue vessels were lesser vessels than
the Kirov the 'ugly American' kind of thing, but
that wasn't the case," he explained. "Initially, au-
thorities sent only two 50-passenger ferries, not
enough room to evacuate everyone, so 83 people
stayed behind until a third rescue vessel could ar-
rive.
Coward reported that by 11 a.m. everyone aboard
the Kirov had been safely evacuated. "We were
taken by bus to Moscow," he said.
Following an 8-hour journey, the Cowards along
with other cruise passengers were lodged at a Mar-
riott.
'Whe were given a room upgrade and spent the re-
mainder of our vacation, three days, touring
Moscow," Coward said. "We were never afraid for
our lives. We're boat people, we just enjoy the water
and we'll go again."
Viking Cruise Line extended the Cowards a 25
percent discount toward their next cruise.

boyfriend went to sleep, Spencer tried to bind his

Spencer then threw a vacuum cleaner at him,

Her boyfriend was able to avoid being hit.
Spencer also had a few grams of marijuana on
her.

Free smoke alarm program
SEMINOLE The City of Seminole Fire Rescue
Department provides installation of smoke alarms
at no cost to all residents.
Residents are encouraged to have at least one
smoke alarm on each floor of their home and one
outside each bedroom area.
To request an appointment for installation of a
free smoke alarm, contact the city's public educa-
tion officer at 393-8711.
Citizens outside the Seminole fire district should
contact their local fire department for similar servic-
es.


Bessler named interim fire chief
SEMINOLE City Manager Frank Edmunds an-
nounced last week he has appointed Assistant Fire
Chief George Bessler to interim fire chief.
"George has more than 28 years of employment
experience with the fire department, has held most
of the command positions during his career and is
deserving of this opportunity to be successful as fire
chief," Edmunds said.
The interim appointment is intended to last sev-
eral months before a final decision is made regard-
ing the position.
Edmunds has interviewed eight applicants for the
job.

Seminole woman charged
SEMINOLE A 41-year-old Seminole woman was
charged with domestic battery and possession of
marijuana Aug. 29 following an altercation with her
boyfrend.
According to a sheriffs report, Tammy Beard
Spencer of 8697 92nd St. N., had an argument with


They are: (1) Does what you are saying advocate a
position?, and (2) Will public funds be a part of it?
"It does not preclude a member of a local govem-
ment from expressing his or her opinion on a
topic," said Elias. "It doesn't prohibit direct commu-
nication by a representative of a government. It
doesn't prevent advertising with signs pro or con, in
otherwords education materials." Elias did say vio-
lations by local government leaders "has the poten-
tial to be very expensive but there are no cases on
record yet."

*Discussed Florida Statute 106.113, a law that
went into effect a year ago and concerns political
advertisements. The statute prevents government
leaders from spending public funds for the support

tion or the upcoming vote on the proposed Amend-
ment 4 in Florida. City Attomney John Elias said
there are two criteria for city leaders to be wary of.

*Passed a resolution moving the Sept. 14 City
Council meeting to Wednesday, Sept. 15 to avoid
a conflict with Pinellas County on a public budg-
et meeting. Thne city will meet later in the month
during its usual fourth Tuesday time slot on
Sept. 28.
*Authorized Edmunds to extend an interlocal
agreement with Pinellas County for maintenance
of the city's 20 traffic signals. Thne extension is for
12 months at a cost of $82,976. Thne agreement
consists of scheduled preventive maintenance
and responses to breakdowns.
*Authorized Edmunds to execute a 1-year ex-
tension to the Fire Services Agreement with Pinel-
las County. The city currently has a 10-year
agreement with the county, which expires Sept.
30, to provide fire protection to the unincorporat-
ed areas of Seminole. The county wants only a
one-year extension.

Mystery vessel
prompts investigation
REDINGTON BEACH Authorities are looking for
the owner of a 43-foot vessel that came ashore Aug.
25 at 15648 Gulf Blvd. on Redington Beach.
Pinellas County Sheriffs Office deputies responded
to the scene just after noon and found a 43-foot sea
Ray Sundancer 48, sitting onshore and no one in
sight, according to the sheriffs report. The engine was
running.
Marine Unit deputies, along with the U.S. Coast
Guard searched the area and areas farther offshore in
the Gulf of Mexico, looking for anyone that might
have fallen off the vessel. The Coast Guard discontin-


ued the search just after 7 p.m.
The vessel, the "Making Waves," out of Jupiter, had
an expired Florida registration, but a current
Delaware state registration and United states docu-
mentation. It had a Mexican flag flying at the bow,
and an American flag flying at the stem.
Deputies contacted the previous registered owner
in Tampa, who said the boat had been sold in 2008 to
Arturo Millet Reyes, and "he believed Reyes was tak-
ing the vessel to Mexico," the report said. No addition-
al information on Reyes was available.
Deputies are following leads through the Delaware
state registration, but still have not found the owner.
The vessel was impounded and will be held until
the rightful owner can be found.

TIERRA VERDE Seasonal Tierra Verde resident,
Gary Schwach, 71, reaches into the trunk of his
black Chrysler

out a 3/8-inhea nch pul H elping
socket wrench.
Today he is hands
tuning up a
green four-wheel- standing volunteerS
er that rangers
use to get around
on the group of five islands that make up Fort De
Soto Park.
Schwach is a Pinellas County volunteer. He ar-
rives at the small-engine maintenance shed on Bon-
nie Fortune Key every weekday morning around 8
a.m. and is greeted by a sizable congregation of
weathered hand and gas-powered tools.
"Just about any tool they bring in that they can't
get to run or run correctly, I'll work on it for them,"
Schwach said.
Every tool plays an important role in keeping Fort
De Soto Park, a world-class tourist destination, op-
erating at peak condition. And Schwach plays an
important role as well. He keeps those tools operat-
ing at their best for the 28 full-time county employ-
ees that depend on them.
According to park supervisor Jim Wilson, volun-
teers like Schwach are filling the gap created during
tough budget times.

Largo may lease golf course
LARGO Some city commissioners suggested
Aug. 19 that the city consider leasing the financially
strapped Largo Municipal Golf Course to private en-
terprise.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said she has been
hearing from residents who don't like the idea that
the city has been putting money into the golf
course. Crozier said she would be willing "for a year
to give them (the golf course) some money," but
added that city officials don't know how to run it as
a business.
"After maybe a year if I'm still on the commission,
I will be asking for somebody to be looking at possi-
bly that's our land, we keep it, we lease it to a busi-
ness that would run it as a golf course and gives us
money," Crozier said, at the commission budget ses-
sion.
City Manager Mac Craig said city officials are
going out to meet with a golf course management
team from St. Petersburg.
"They don't come and run the golf course; they
are just giving us guidance on how to run the golf


work their time-frame instead of having to come in
and make repairs, service equipment ... It's a win-
win situation for us.
Schwach's experience troubleshooting small en-
gines comes from his past career as a tree trimmer.
He learned the trade as an employee with the city of
Detroit during the height of Michigan's historic out-
break of Dutch elm disease in the 1950s and 1960s.
"It was heartbreaking ... I literally [saw] people out
in the street crying as we were cutting trees down,"
Schwach said. "In a period of 10 years we cut down
500,000 elm trees."
Schwach hung up the chainsaw in 1971 and took
an hourly job with a manufacturing company that
built restraint systems for cargo on military aircraft,
eventually working his way up to president.
Then, life gave him a new experience. Eleven
years ago, Schwach was diagnosed with lung can-
cer.
"The doctor said if I don't do surgery you've got
less than a week. If I do surgery, you'll probably die
on the table."
Schwach survived.
"So, part of my volunteering is giving back," he re-
flected. "I figure I've been given a gift of time ever
since then."
Schwach was motivated to volunteer at Fort De
Soto Park when he read in the newspaper that the
park needed help.
'Wer can't put a price tag on it," Wilson said. "He's
more than willing to do that service aspect of it."
Schwach heads back to Michigan during the
wanner months of the year, but intends to return to
the metal maintenance shed on Bonnie Fortune Key
in the fall.
"I've already told my wife I'm going to miss this
place when I go back home."
No doubt Fort De Soto Park will miss its neighbor

Discussion continues on
recreation center design
IARGO City commissioners are mulling over
whether they want construction of the Highland
Recreation Complex to be certified through an in-
ternationally recognized green building system.
The issue came up during the City Commis-
sion's discussion Aug. 17 on a proposed $1.7 mil-
lion contract for design services for the $13
million project. Gould Evans Associates of Tampa
has been selected to design the 40,000-square-
foot complex on the site of the current building.
Commissioners raised several questions about
LEED certification, which was developed by the
U.S. Green Building Council. The process pro-
vides verification that a building was designed
and constructed meeting certain standards for en-
ergy savings, water efficiency, emissions reduc-
tions, indoor environmental quality and other
elements.
Discussion of the contract will continue.

ny of These Legs Look Familiar
Varicose Veins and Spider Veins are not the only consequences of failed vein valves.
The following are also consequences: Swollen Ankles, Leg Cramps, Night Cramps, Aching, Painful,
Tired Legs, "Secondary" Restless Leg Symptoms, Skin Discoloration and Ulcers, Itching &i Burning.
90% of Varicose Veins are hidn isid t lg!


All of these patients had vein disease from failed vein valves. All needed a vein ultrasound (done in our office).
All of these patients were very effectively treated in our office with one or more of the following:

*Endovenous Laser (NO VEIN STRIPPING!!) Micro-phlebectomy (NO SCALPELS!!)

*Modern Sclerotherapy (NO SALINE!!)

NO PAIIN. NO DOWNr\TIME.lE ALL PROCEDURES VERY EFFECTIVE.

$1,000 scholarship from the American Advertising Federation -

brief statement listing their involvement in advertising or the commu-
nity, including a reference from the school or community.

Beach fishing can provide good action
as well as often being slightly cooler than
the inshore more protected waters.
Schools of Spanish mackerel can be
seen busting schools of glass minnows
just outside the swim buoys all along the
beach. Most of the mackerel are on the
small side, but there are plenty of fish in
the 18 to 24 inch class.
Cast chrome plated Gotcha plugs or
free-line live pilchards or shrimp on 2/0
long shank hook.
Along with the mackerel we've been
catching loads of small jack crevalle and
ladyfish and a few bluefish. All of these
fish are very kid friendly and there's
nothing more rewarding in our sport


than to see kids get excited about fish-

Shark anglers are having a great sum-

tips and hammerheads can be caught
both in the backwaters as well as off the
beach. Oily baits like mullet, jacks, lady-
fish and mackerel fished on the bottom
will attract sharks in a hurry.
Inshore fish near the passes or in the
pass itself and offshore about a mile or
so off the beach should put you on the
fish. Fresh chum blocks and plenty of
fresh cut chum will help tremendously.

Beacon, September 2, 2010


I hope there's an institute somewhere
that keeps track of presidential criticisms.
If so, it would record the faults and
shortcomings of each of our presidents.
Point values might be assigned to each
flaw. As each president reached the end of
his/her White House stay he would be as-
signed a total fault rating. That way we
could keep score, and would know how
each president compares to all the others.
of course, all of this is easier said than
done. Fault-finding is mostly a subjective
process. It depends on who is criticizing the
president. One observer's hero is another
guy's chump.
Certain aspects of a president's perform-
ance could easily be monitored. The number
of his DWI convictions, for example, or how
often he fell asleep in church. Or how many
useless wars he committed our troops to
fight in.
But other traits would defy clear judging.
Such as how well he mingles with the peo-
ple. Does he have the common touch? Does
he make you want to have a beer with him?
That's one of the criteria that Barack
Obama is being judged on these days.
From most reports, he's flunking. He does
especially poorly when he's compared with
Bill Clinton, whose fondness for pressing the
flesh and rubbing elbows with the citizenry
endeared him to millions ofAmericans.
This raises the question about what sort
of man (or woman) do we want in the White
House. Anyone who pretends to have an
easy answer to that is probably lying.

A proactive




Largo officials are moving toward establishing a tobacco-free hiring
policy in the city.
They say that hiring people who don't smoke is a proactive step that
should help the city save money in health insurance costs.
statistics support their position. According to an issue of Corporate
Wellness Advisors, U.S. businesses are paying an additional $3,391
per smoker per year in direct medical and lost productivity from smok-
ing-related illnesses.
Though such a policy is not expected to affect the city's upfront
costs, it should reduce the claims spurred by lung and throat cancers
and heart disease. Such action is not without precedent.
Many governments have smoke-free hiring policies and workplaces.
The refusal to hire smokers does not constitute unlawful discrimina-
tion since they are not being excluded based on grounds of race, reli-
gion, sex, age and handicap.
Largo would become the first of the large cities in Pinellas County to
establish a tobacco-free hiring policy. It's police and fire departments
have been tobacco-free since 1991.
Besides the impact on health-care costs, smoking can contribute to
lost productivity on the job in other ways, such as when employees
take longer breaks than allowed to smoke.
since the policy would only apply to new employees, the contention
that it sets a double standard has merit. Nevertheless, for the city to
require all existing employees to quit smoking would be unrealistic and
unreasonable since they weren't required to be nonsmokers when they
were hired.
City officials plan to encourage all employees to stop smoking, as
should any employer concerned about health-care costs.
In recent years, governments have taken many steps to curtail the
use of tobacco products and create smoke-free environments. Current-
ly, south Pasadena is the only city in the county that has a smoke-free
policy.
In addition to Largo, other Pinellas governments should recognize
the effects that smoking has on health-care costs and establish similar
policies. The case they can make to take such action is so strong that
they should all breathe easily in doing so.

Too much marketing
Editor:
I have had enough.
Our country's people are trapped in an endless stream of marketing
from the time we awaken until we go to sleep.
We awaken to the radio or television when we get ready for work. We
are bombarded with ads selling everything that a good consumer
should need.
All one would have to do is channel surf and see on top of the regu-
lar regimen of commercials infomercials that try to sell products that
are, "not sold in any stores" and if we only act now, we can take ad-
vantage of the great deals.
Exit the home and we find that every usable surface from the sides
of trucks and buses, benches, billboards, and ad trucks to blimps and
planes that fly banners all vying for one thing, our attention so we can
read the ad and buy the product.
Add to this marketing barrage the phenomenon that occurs during
election season; the caustic deluge of fear inducing political ads flood
in like some cynical monsoon season with ads that pollute the media
airwaves.
These ads are then processed and repeated ad-nauseum on the var-
ious "news sources" that always decry anything "the other side" does.
Suddenly Democratic and Republican election signs of all sizes ap-
pear across the countryside and on peoples lawns in segregated
bunches like expensive mushrooms after a storm.
I have been comfortable until now in my ability to end the stream of
marketing. When need be I can ignore the signs and buses and go
home and tumn off the television and radio.
Now even that calm in the storm has been invaded.
I recently ordered a pizza. They provided a quick delivery; I took the
box and went to open it and to my surprise a card fell off of the box.
Upon inspection I found a card from a candidate for circuit court
judge. All I wanted was a pizza and I again had to be bothered with a
political ad.
If the candidate is so desperate to win that she has to pass her
cards out with pizza, she should save her money and drop out of the
race.
This is just ridiculous; I was so offended that this happened I called
and spoke to the manager of the pizza place that delivered the pizza
and offending card. He told me that each store is an independent fran-
chise and that he has to pass those cards out. I then told the manager
that I am an independent consumer and that I will no longer be using
their product.
For goodness sake, one should be able to order a pizza without
being bothered with a political ad.
I draw the line here. If you feel the same way, I invite you to draw
the same line.
An American who is all marketed out.

Writer should know the speed limit
2Re: 'Wu/ does Seminole allow speed tnraps?' Seminole Beacon, Aug
Editor:
The writer of that letter has no one to blame but herself. That is no
speed trap in front of Home Depot. I have lived in Seminole 38 years
and I have never gotten a speeding ticket going through there, despite
traveling that section of road thousands of times. For many years, the
speed limit has been 35 mph on that stretch. The letter writer states
that she has been a Seminole resident for 30 years. If so, then she
should know the speed limit through that area.
Heading west on Park Boulevard, there are signs saying the speed
limit is going to go lower as you get closer to Home Depot. There is
plenty of time to get to the 35 mph speed limit.
As far as I'm concerned, that is not a speed trap. This is a person
failing to take responsibility for their actions in getting a $241 speed-
ing ticket, and trying to put the blame elsewhere.

Obey the traffic laws
Editor:
In your Aug. 26 issue, there was an unbelievable letter from Maria
Wyatt regarding "speed traps." At first I thought it was satire. She
wants the city to make drivers aware to slow down by putting up
flashing lights, speed bumps and a digital board?
It seems to me, Maria Wyatt needs to go through drivers training or
be retested for her license. It is people like her who require the city to
enforce traffic laws.
I guarantee if drivers were speeding in her neighborhood, she would


be the first person to complain to the city.
So-called speed traps are only traps for speeders. If Mrs. Wyatt
would obey the law, she would not have a complaint.
I, for one, am glad to see seminole enforcing traffic laws. I only wish
our illustrious Sheriffs Office would do the same in the rest of the
county.
Keep up the good work, Seminole.

LETTERS, from pagel17A

this is to impose a flat fee on the number of people occupying or
able to occupy a building.
For instance if a house has three members, a flat fee could be
imposed on that residence per person. If a stadium or church
has a capacity for a hundred, thousand or 20 thousand people,
then a fee for those structures would be imposed accordingly. Do
you notice the word tax is not used. It has a negative connota-
tion and it would be unwise to use the word tax. The tax that is
currently imposed on properties is very unfair and we don't need
to dump more on the property owners who are paying for their
neighbors living property tax free. Take a lesson from the tele-
phone billing info. They have a way of imposing all kinds of fees,
etc. without using the ugly word tax.
If the lawmakers could find a way to abolish the 100 percent
exemptions on property tax, it would really solve the shortage
problem without any millage rate increase and eliminate a great
deal of hostility that exists toward the deadbeat, free load neigh-
bors that the paying public is required to pick up the load for.
This flat fee collected per number of users or potential users in
a structure would be applied only for fire, police emergency serv-
ices
Hey, another good idea by an American taxpayer tired of pay-
ing for a deadbeat free load neighbor and there are too many not
paying. Let's get everybody in the paying game before imposing
more strain on the overburdened tax paying public! OK?
How's that for decisive action on public safety funding?

Redington Beach mystery boat
Editor:
I would like to personally thank all the people who came to see
the mystery boat that washed up on Redington Beach this past
week, making this event, a circus of the peculiar.
In particular, my thanks go to the ignorant people, who with-
out regard for the people who live on the beach, walked through
and over properties, and when confronted, were told to get lost.
Also, let me thank the multitude of people who trashed the
beach with their garbage, by leaving behind plastic bottles and
litter.
I don't want to exclude the people who used my beach foot
shower and left the water running all night until I discovered it
in the a.m.
Unfortunately, Redington Beach does not have a public clean
up contract, so let's extend an invitation to those ignorant folks,
who troded on my plants, threw garbage outside my back yard,
to come on back and have a cleanup party.
Well, at least I know of one person who will attend, me.

When German Karl Drais invented what he
called a walking machine in 1817, he probably had
no idea the stage was set for the modem day bicy-
cle.
Almost 200 years later, bicycling has evolved
into one of the world's most popular means of
transportation and often nowadays as an altema-
tive to cars.
Thanks to the exploits of Greg LeMond and
Lance Armstrong, long-distance bicycle competition
has picked up a fan base in the United States,
which has led many enthusiasts to adopt bikes as a
recreational vehicle for staying in shape.
Like most kids, I enjoyed riding bicycles and will
never forget that shiny, red J.C. Higgins model I got
for Christmas when I was about 8.
After saving $50 from my lawn mowing jobs and
Other chores around the neighborhood, I purchased
my first bike about two years later. It too was a J.C.
Higgins model but was a tremendous upgrade with
a built-in headlight and a horn. It even had a
bracket for carrying books on the back.
It was a classic and took me many miles around

As most people are well aware, bicycling is very
Bob popular in Pinellas. You don't have to drive too far
on any given day to see somebody riding a two-
MClClure wheeler.
Unfortunately, many of the riders I've seen lately
are full-grown adults and they're using bikes for
what appears to be basic transportation. I often
iith my first wonder if it's because of the high price of gas or
for the old maybe a recent DUI.
Hopefully, they're not using bicycles for criminal
favor of my purposes.

homes. Car burglaries were the norm for the bandit

I am again crime happened right here in Pinellas in 2007 when
... just for a guy stole a bicycle from a van in St. Petersburg.


Unbeknownst to the thief, the owner of the van
looked up from his workplace as the thief was rid-
ing away on his bike. He and two friends ran after
the thief and caught the guy before calling the po-
lice. The thief ended up with a 12-year sentence for
burglary and possession of cocaine.
But here's the kicker. After serving a portion of
his sentence at a north Florida prison, the dirtbag
filed a lawsuit seeking $500,000 in damages
against the owner of the bike and his two friends
for roughing him up during the process of his citi-
zen's arrest.
He claimed the take-down caused permanent
disabilities and psychological disorders. Only in
America, right?
Fortunately, incidents like this aren't the norm
but accidents are.
If you're a bicyclist take the proper safety precau-
tions. If you're riding at night, use a lighted beam
so automobile drivers can see you. And while you're
at it, wear some reflective clothing or something
light in color.

Larry Haueter had the right idea.
One of my mentors and editors when I was
a cub reporter, Larry came up with a
thoughtful and reasonable proposal that
would improve elections and embrace demo-
cratic principles.
Larry, who died many years ago, suggested
that in any election, voters should have to be
able to cast their ballots for "no way, baby."
If more than 50 percent of the voters say no
way, baby in a particular race, all candidates
would be disqualified, and the political parties
for which the candidates represents must
present a fresh slate of candidates.
The last primary led me to the conclusion
that it's high time to add no way, baby the
ballot in all elections. Can't recall ever being
as disillusioned over an election as I was with
this one, particularly Florida's U.S. Senate
race.
Empty rhetoric ... flip-flopping ... lack of ac-
countability ... distortion ... grandstanding ...
extremism ... and more skeletons in the clos-
est than you'll see in the "Pirates of
Caribbean" movies combined. The race cried
for no way, baby.
OK, it could have been worse. At least, to
the best of my knowledge, there weren't any
convicts on my ballot. Some pathological liars,
two-faced camival barkers, Jacobites, jackals,
charlatans and chiselers, but no convicts.

While Facebook busily redefines what it means to have a relation-
ship, whom we spend our time with reveals more about us than any
psychoanalysis of our childhood or sip of fermented truth serum.
If you work full time, you spend more time with the Bevs and Bills of
your workaday worlds than with your children or spouse.
If you're retired, you presumably choose your companions. This
seemingly gives us a look at human
social life as it was meant to be.
For a lot of us, it's easy (and Dolphin
cheaper) to replace visits home with Watch
phone calls, or god forbid, text mes- ~ nWae
sages and Facebook displays.AnWevr
Ever felt guilty about that?
Should you?
Maybe we can get some tips on family affairs from free-ranging bot-
tlenose dolphins. After all, they're intelligent and socially flexible. Im-
portantly, they're under no pressure to look affectionate or respectful.
Bottlenose dolphins live in fission-fusion societies. Fission means
splitting apart. Fusion means coming together. The fission-fusion soci-
ety connotes a dizzying constancy of social group formation, destruc-
tion and reformation.
People understand this. If you socialize with people who were actual-
ly present in the same room, think about the best party you ever at-
tended wedding, bar mitzvah, bluegrass weekend, christening -
whatever. If you socialize with people over cyberspace, think about the
comings and goings on your social networks.
You spend time with one person; that ends. You spend time with a
different person; that ends. Someone else shows up; soon replaced by
someone else or maybe the first person again. On and on it goes until
the party is over.
The challenge of social networking (and, alas, work e-mails) is that
the fission-fusion "party" is never over, on land or sea.
The dolphins in our study area manage as many as 70 social rela-
tionships.
Some of their relationships are superficial. By chance or design, dol-
phins who mingle at dusk in the rich radiating waterways of John's
Pass get the chance to socialize with acquaintances and strangers.
Some, like commuters on the same train schedule, may not actually
interact. Instead, they drift in one another's vicinity, drawn to the
same attractions.
Some dolphin relationships are deep, indicated when a dolphin is
psychobiologically crushed by the loss of a beloved companion or by
local female Split, who prodded and protected the body of her dead
baby for over a week, and then had dolphin dermatitis for the next
year
Surely, the mother-calf bond is the sine qua non of emotional ties.
Mom dolphin has a calf. She spends years nurturing, protecting, feed-
ing, retrieving and teaching her baby how to fish. They're never apart.
Then, the next calf is born. Mom is busy tending it. For the older
calf, suddenly it's over. Many appear to fledge (wean) abruptly, with no
preparation. Severed from mom's care, the older calf swims off. It is
alone for the first time in its life.
How can this be? Is the deep mother-calf bond snapped? Or is i
stretched, like your bond with your parents when you grew up anc

Behind that clear bottlenose dolphin eye is a very clever communicator.
moved away?!
This summer's mother-calf reunions suggested that the bond is
stretched.
One August morning, perfect for cruising waterways past tangles of
mangroves, two little dolphins were wholly focused on making as
much bodily contact as possible. Five-year-old VC accepted rolling in-
vitations from 2-year-old Fugazi, arching up and plunging them both
into seas of froth and fun.
Their moms hunted nearby. That wasn't strange for Fugazi, who is
not yet weaned. But it was wildly notable for VC, who weaned last year
and has only seen his mom three times since.
That night, we saw two "reunions" among the dolphins that had as-
sembled around John's Pass at dusk. This time, VC cavorted wildly
with teens Sharkey and Scarface. Their moms too were nearby, tend-
ing yearling calves. It was notable because they only see their moms
two to three times a year.
In all of these reunions, surface observation showed no obvious in-
teraction between moms and older calves. But in the dolphin way,
each knew perfectly well that the other was there.
Dolphin moms and older calves only get together a handful of times
each year. But the fact that they do so consistently asks if the "discon-
nected connection" inherent in e-mail was really invented by the Inter-
net. The next question is whether dolphin reunions are random, and if
not, how dolphins arrange them.
Humans and bottlenose dolphins manage a dizzying array of rela-
tionships. Both have fission-fusion societies.
still, IF you had complete freedom (which you don't), would you go
home every once in a while?

George Clooney stars in the title role of director Anton Corbijn's suspense thriller "The American," a Focus Features release.




Openmng this week

ClOOney stars as an assassin on a sabbatical in 'The American'


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 American'
Genre: Thriller and adaptation
Cast: George Clooney, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli, Violante
Placido and hrina Bjbrklund
Director: Anton Corbijn
Rated: R
The suspense thriller "The American" stars Academy Award winner
George Clooney in the title role for director Anton Corbijn.
As an assassin, Jack (Clooney) is constantly on the move and al-
ways alone. After a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for
this American abroad, Jack retreats to the Italian countryside. He rel-
ishes being away from death for a spell as he holes up in a small me-
dieval town. While there, Jack takes an assignment to construct a
weapon for a mysterious contact, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten).
Savoring the peaceful quietude he finds in the mountains of Abruz-
zo, Jack accepts the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Paolo
Bonacelli) and pursues a torrid liaison with a beautiful woman, Clara
(Violante Placido). Jack and Clara's time together evolves into a ro-
mance, one seemingly free of danger. But by stepping out of the shad-
ows, Jack may be tempting fate.

'Going the Distance'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis
and Christina Applegate
Director: Nanette Burstein
Rated: R
Erin's (Drew Barrymore) wry wit and unfiltered frankness chann
newly single Garrett (Justin Long) over beer, bar trivia and breakfast
the next morning.
Their chemistry sparks a full-fledged summer fling, but neither ex-
pects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett
stays behind for his job in New York City. But when six weeks of romp-
ing through the city inadvertently become meaningful, neither is sure

gether 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 cornerstone 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 var-
ious 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" spot-
lights 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 in-
clude seminal takes on "Almost Cut My Hair,
"Chicago," "Love The One You're With," "Sleep Song"

1990 Top New Female Vocalist and 1992 Top Fe-

something like love, and with the help of a lot of texting, seating and
late-night phone calls, they might actually go the distance.

'Machete'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez
and steven Seagal
Director: Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis
Rated: R
He looked like just another day laborer from the streets, and the
perfect fall guy for a crooked political assassination. But he turned out
to be Machete (Danny Trejo), a legendary ex-federale with a deadly atti-
tude and the skills to match.
Machete is the latest movie from writer/director Robert Rodriguez
and is co-directed by Ethan Maniquis.
Left for dead after clashing with notorious Mexican drug kingpin
Torrez (steven Seagal), Machete has escaped to Texas, looking to dis-
appear and forget his tragic past. But what he finds is a web of corrup-
tion and deceit that leaves a bullet in senator McLaughlin (Robert
DeNiro) and Machete a wanted man.
Machete sets out to clear his name and expose a conspiracy. But
standing in his way are Benz (Jeff Fahey), a ruthless businessman
with an endless payroll of killers; Von (Don Johnson), a twisted border
vigilante leading a small anny; and Sartana Rivera (Jessica Alba), a
beautiful immigrations officer torn between enforcing the law and
doing what is right.
Helping Machete even the odds are Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a sexy
taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart; and
Padre (Cheech Marin), a priest who's good with blessings, but better
with guns.
Carving a path of bullets, blood and broken hearts, Machete's quest
ultimately leads him back to Torrez for an epic battle of revenge and
redemption.

The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks be-
fore these films appear in local movie theaters,

to a maximum-security prison where he writes his memoirs, estab-
lishing himself as a household name and the anti-hero across
France. Mesrine stages another daring escape and disappears into

After such a monumental rise, comes the inevitable fall as the police
close in, bringing the life of Jacques Mesrine to full bloody circle.

Feeling neglected, Wang's wife secretly goes out with Li, one of his

bought for "killing her husband later." However, not a single move
they make escapes the boss's notice, and he decides to bribe patrol
officer Zhang to kill the illicit couple. It looks like a perfect plan: The
affair will come to a cruel but satisfying end ... or so he thinks.
The equally wicked Zhang has an agenda of his own that will lead
to even more violence.

'The Last Exorcism'


is compelling, chilling
While it doesn't come close to inducing the kind of fear generated by
1973's 'T~he Exorcist," 'T~he Last Exorcism" is a compelling and chilling
late summer surprise featuring some first-rate performances and un-
expected plot twists.
That is, except for the last 10 minutes more on that in a moment.
At first glance, 'The Last Exorcism" may seem a bit clichi, particu-
larly to veteran horror fans. It re-
peats and reworks many elements
present in most films sharing similar
Reel Time subject matter, ingredients intro-
ice Cark um e duced in the original genre jugger-
i ~~ lak Zmp naut "The Exorcist." The formulaic
building blocks include a young
woman whose behavior suggests de-
monic possession, a holy man who is struggling with his faith, freaky
contortions accompanied by crunching bones and, of course, some
vomit though not of the projectile pea soup variety.
What on Earth could have possessed fihnmakers to conjure up all of
these womn-out horror movie conventions?
Most likely, it was the opportunity to tell the tale in a new-fangled
way: namely, the trendy docu-drama.
Ever since 'The Blair Witch Project" introduced mainstream movie-
goers to the concept of horror in the fonn of simulated nonfiction in
1999, faux fright documentaries have become excruciatingly common-
place. More often than not, these derivative films don't live up to the
hype surrounding them, failing to deliver a persuasive premise and of-
fering little or no content horror aficionados would deem truly fear-pro-
voking.
'The Last Exorcism," directed by Daniel Stamm and co-produced by
Eli Roth, pulls off an uncanny coup. The characters are well developed
and the conditions driving their motivations and intentions are con-
vincing. The film also manages to bring some disturbing images to the
screen, though it mainly generates dread through building tension.
The film follows skeptic priest Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) whose
preacher father groomed him to deliver sennons from the pulpit when
he was still a child. Early in the film, Cotton describes his disillusion-
ment with the only profession he has ever known and admits that
though he has perfonned numerous exorcisms, he doesn't believe in
demonic possession.
To expose the practice as a sham, Cotton has a documentary film
crew accompany him on his last exorcism.
Cotton and the crew travel to the remote Sweetzer fann and meet
teenager Nell (Ashley Bell). Her father (Louis Herthum), a widower with
a drinking problem and a very traditionalist view of religion, claims
Nell has been slaughtering his livestock and that she's possessed by
the devil.
A mock exorcism follows and then all proverbial hell breaks loose.
Fabian manages to make a mocking, self-disparaging character both
likable and sympathetic. As Cotton recounts personal challenges and
incidents that led to his decision to tumn his back on his faith, Fabian
infuses the role with traces of humility and humanity that testify to the
character's integrity. Had Fabian not emphasized Cotton's compas-
sion, his persistence in trying to protect Nell would not have been cred-
ible.
Bell shifts gears from an innocent and troubled young victim to an
alarmingly terrifying demon-puppet surprisingly smoothly. Playing the
devil's rag-doll must be demanding and a little unsettling, but Bell
handles the dichotomy effectively, oozing rural chann in early scenes
and showcasing her unsettling contortionist skills as the fihn progress-
es.
And progress it does, taking some unanticipated tumns along the
way, right up until the last 10 minutes. It doesn't fall apart, exactly: It
simply fails to deliver a conclusion that suits the material presented up
to that point. Explaining how it disappoints would spoil all of the fun
leading up to the disappointment, though, and that fun is worth the
price of admission.
Just be prepared.
Despite its Achilles' heel, "The Last Exorcism" is smart, riveting and
creepy. If only someone could exorcise the regrettable meltdown en-
capsulated in the last 10 minutes of the film ...

Cleanup


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.
