Boat slips open

in Clear water
After a lengthy process that began in
2003, Clearwater officials cut the ribbon
Sept. 2, signaling the official opening of
the downtown boat slips. The new mari-
na includes 126 boat slips, 1,700 feet of
overnight space for visitors, and 700 feet
of spac for daytime visits.


PSTA establishes

ridership marks
PSTA has set monthly ridership
records in seven of the last 10 months,
averaging nearly 1.1 million rides per
month. If that trend continues, PSl'A will
provide passengers with more than 13
million rides for the year, a gain of more
than 7 percent.

Pinellas Park

OKs pay raises
The City Council unanimously agreed
Aug. 26 to raise nonunionized city em-
ployees' wages by 2.5 percent, bringing
them in line with similar raises already
negotiated with employees in police and
fire department unions. ... Page 6A

Paramedics train

with SWAT teams
Every time a SWAT team is activated,
the paramedics trained for those situa-
tions go with them. If the scene can be
contained quicidy, their specialized train-
ing might not be needed. However, if the
shooter is hiding in a larger space, the
SWAT paramedics will follow law en-
forcement inside and help the injured as
they encounter them.



Hard Rock plans

new Tampa cafe
A new Hard Rock Cafe will open at the
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in
Tampa before year's end.
Expected to become one of Tampa
Bay's premier dining and entertainment
destinations, the 17,500-square-foot
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will be construct-
ed in the northwest comer of the existing
casino complex, nearly doubling the
9,000-square-foot space formerly occu-
pied by Floyd's restaurant and nightclub.

director








By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE If Peter Berry's
track record is an accurate indi-
cation, Seminole Vocational Edu-
cation Center is in for some
serious transition.
Berry, 61, took over as director
of the facility in July and is a firm
believer in the catch phrase from
the movie "Field of Dreams."
"If you build it, they will come,
said Berry,
who has
been as-
signed the
task of grow-
ing the
school's cur-



el chan ae Peter Berry
600. So we
need to grow it."
Berry spent last year as direc-
tor of the Pinellas Technical Edu-
cational Center in St. Petersburg.
Prior to that he was assistant di-
rector at Manatee Technical Insti-
tute in Bradenton for three years
and assistant director at West-
side Tech in Orlando for five
years.
Earlier he served for 10 years
as a high school coordinator in
Seminole County, specializing in
biometrics as a form of identity
access management.
More recently his efforts have
centered on photovoltaics and he
plans to continue that push at
SVEC, located at 12611 86th
Ave. N.
"I've put solar energy in at five
schools and I hope to put it in
this one too," said Berry, who
earned a doctorate degree in ad-
ministration supervision from the
University of Central Florida.
Berry estimates the cost for a
4.2-kilowatt system at about
$17,000, which would be paid for
through grants he has already
applied for. He estimates the sys-
tem would pay for itself within six

Habitat Park opens at SPC


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Students at St. Petersburg College and resi-
dents of Seminole now have a new venue to explore nature.
SPC officials opened the first phase of its Natural Habitat
Park and Environmental Center Aug. 31 with a crowd of about
200 on hand who were not fazed by the morning heat.
The park is located immediately north of the school's Univer-
sity Partnership Building and the Seminole Community Li-
brary.
The first phase includes a pavilion with seating for 50, a
sidewalk out to the park area, a 200-yard boardwalk that me-
anders between four ponds, a floating dock in one of the ponds
and a pair of observation decks at the end of two trails.
The first phase was built at a cost of about $600,000. Of that
amount, $475,000 came from a U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development grant and $100,000 from the city of
Seminole. The remaining $25,000 was contributed by SPC.
The 40-acre park will serve as an outdoor classroom for SPC
science students and a quiet, relaxing place close to nature for
others.
In addition to the floating dock, there are 12 native plant
habitat stations along the walkway. They focus on a wax myr-
tle, slash pine, red maple tree, pickerel weed, laurel oak trees,
pine trees, red bay trees, swamp femn, southern magnolia trees,
water oak trees, a wetland habitat and a place to rest and re-
flect.
The park also includes 185 species of birds, 24 varieties of
dragonflies, seven types of butterflies, 24 species of amphibians
and reptiles, and nine varieties of mammals.
Mammals include the opossum, raccoon, river otter, coyote,
eastern gray squirrel, hispid cotton rat, eastern cottontail,
marsh rabbit and nine-banded armadillo.
Second and third phases of the boardwalk are planned at
some point in the future. Also planned is an environmental
center,


Swamp fern and various species of oak trees abound in the
natural surroundings.

The second phase will wind back toward the library and the
third phase will go farther north into the woods.
Each phase will cost about $400,000.
The park is open dawn to dusk, Monday through Friday; 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m., Sunday.

SEMINOLE As former New
York Yankees catcher Yogi
Berra once said, "this is like
deja vu all over again."
No doubt Yogi would be say-
ing something similar about
this year's Music in the Park
series, which features singers
and groups that have all ap-
peared in Seminole before.
The 14th annual series
kicks off Friday, Sept. 10, 7
p.m., when 13-year-old Suite
Caroline, also known as Caro-
line Kudelko, takes the stage
at Seminole City Park, 7464
Ridge Road.
In addition, the free, six-
week series includes the Latin
rock sound of Supemnatural on
Sept. 17; Cajun/zydeco tunes
from the Gumbo Boogie Band,
Sept. 24; Suzette Jennings
performing blues and jazz,
Oct. 1; the big band sound of
the Dan McMillion Orchestra,
Oct. 8; and the Shaguars, who
will play 1960s British inva-
sion hits, Oct. 15.
Suite Caroline, a country
pop singer from Belleair, last
played in Seminole during this


year's Pow Wow Festival.
Caroline, who credits Taylor
Swift and George Strait for
their influence on her music,
has recorded two CDs of all
original music. She has per-
formed on stage with Pat Be-
natar and the GoGo's, and
sung live with Sheryl Crow.
Supernatural, a local Pinel-
las County group that has
toured nationally, last ap-
peared at Music in the Park
two years ago. The group fea-
tures Dave Mueller on guitar,
El Nino Garcia on the congas,
Pete Kane on keyboard and vo-
cals, Michael "Angus" McEach-
ern on bass and vocals,
vocalist Todd Plant, Steve
Eiseman on drums and vocals,
and Asoka Compton on tim-
bales.
The Gumbo Boogie Band,
based in Bradenton, plays fre-
quently at Pelican Pete's in
Cortez. The six-member group
consists of Ryan Langley on
piano, accordion, trumpet and
vocals; Steve Wigginton on bass
and vocals; Chaz Trippy on
percussion and the rub board;

CLEARWATER After a long process that began in 2003, city offi-
cials cut the ribbon signaling the official opening of the downtown
Cleanvater boat slips on Sept. 2.
The new marina includes 126 boat slips, 1,700 feet of overnight
space for visitors, and 700 feet of space for daytime visits and special
events, with daytime space being free. There are still plenty of slots
open, which range from 30 feet to 55 feet, costing $9 per foot for resi-
dents or $10.50 per foot for nonresidents. The facility also includes 24-
hour security, restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, electricity, and a
pump-out service, as well as parking.
"It's going to help revitalize the whole downtown and Clearwater
area," said Cleanvater City Councilman George Cretekos. "... (It will
provide) opportunities to help develop our downtown with the restau-
rants we're trying to put in and retail. Marinas have always been a
center for activity, whether you're talking about here in the states or in
Europe."
Cleanvater Mayor Frank Hibbard said the city began this process in
2003 with the first voter referendum which failed by only about 600
votes. The city then worked with the proposal, changing different
facets of it, he said, and then brought it back to the voters in another
referendum in 2006, which this time passed. Then came the process of
design and engineering and getting approvals from many levels, in-
cluding the state, the county and the Enviromnental Protection Agen-
cy. By the time financing and building was complete, the economy was
not in the city's favor, Hibbard said, and it opens to much lower occu-
pancy than anticipated, but he feels confident that the slips will be
fully utilized within the next couple of years.
Before these were built, there were no options for boaters in down-
town Cleanvater. Looking at downtown st. Petersburg, Hibbard said it
is obvious that their boat slips along the downtown waterfront have
been a major asset, and he sees the same thing happening for Clear-
water.
"Oh, (the economy) is absolutely affecting things," Hibbard said.
"But I think we have a real advantage here at this facility that people

for raising money to help fund the project as well as the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Service which offered much help and help secure a grant
for the project.
"The year that we competed (for the grant,) there were only $9.6 mil-
lion given out nationwide," Morris said. "$1.2 million of it went here in
Cleanvater (for this project.)"
The city applied for the grant in October 2006, said Patricia Harrell,
boating access coordinator for Florida Fish and Wildlife Services, and
was awarded the grant the following April. Permitting took three years,
she said, but the grant was fully executed on Sept. 2, 2009 exactly
one year before the slips officially opened.
Morris said the marina has taken on a life of its own and has been
showing benefits that weren't even considered during the initial design
stages.
"Whhile we didn't start out to become an attracter to downtown, we've
found that as we started building this, the residential units that were
looking for any chance they could to help market their units said,
wow, look at what we have right out our back door," Morris said. "And
as these started to build, the interest from our residential community
downtown has just been phenomenal. ... So we're not only going to
rent boat slips, we're going to be hosting events. And that is a market
that we didn't originally anticipate going after, but it's such a natural
fit, especially when you look at it and the positive feedback that we're
getting from both the tenants and from the transient boaters."
The boat slips are located at 210 Drew st. across from Coachman
Park and the old Harborview Center. For infonnation about renting a
slip, call 462-6954.

Boats dock at the downtown Clearwater boat slips which officially
opened on Sept. 2.
will start recognizing, and that's the fact that from this marina, people
can be out in the Gulf of Mexico in five minutes. And that's something
that if you docked in st. Peter or Tampa, you're literally spending po-
tentially 100s of dollars just to get to the Gulf. So folks can more than
pay for their slip rental with the fuel savings that they're going to expe-
rience, so I think that is an economic advantage. That really is a huge
thing."
Hibbard said that the marina also offers benefits to nonboaters, in
addition to bringing in people to help revitalize downtown.
"Wer have the pier here where people can come out and enjoy the
water and sunsets," Hibbard said. There's the fishing pier that allows
people to get out there and put a hook in the water, not to mention all
these upland improvements, from the seawall which was basically
falling apart to the lack of landscaping right here all of that has been
improved. And it's certainly a better look now for downtown."
Harbonnaster Bill Morris said he wanted to thank the private sector

Briefly


PSTA sets ridership records
As the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority heads into the final two
months of its fiscal year, the agency is on pace to carry more riders
than ever.
PSTA has set monthly ridership records in seven of the last 10
months, averaging nearly 1.1 million rides per month. If that trend
continues, PSTA will provide passengers with more than 13 million
rides for the year, a gain of more than 7 percent.
"Our ridership numbers dropped a bit when the recession hit. Now,
we're seeing a rebound and unlike the last time they were this high, in
2008, they're not being driven by skyrocketing gasoline prices," PSTA
Executive Director Tim Garling said in a press release.
According to experts from the Center for Urban Transportation Re-
search at the University of South Florida, a 2.5 percent increase in an-
nual ridership is considered a strong gain in the transit industry. Over
the past three years, PSl'A has nearly doubled that rate of increase.
"PSTA continues working to provide more service to more people,"
Garling said. "(Pinellas County) Commissioner Karen Seel has estab-
lished a Transportation Task Force that is looking at our future fund-
ing needs and sources. We are also partnering with the Tampa Bay
Area Regional Transportation Authority, the Pinellas County MPO.
and the Florida Department of Transportation to study various high-
traffic corridors that will yield opportunities for improved transit cou-
pled with robust economic development."
For more information about the Transportation Task Force, visit
www.pinellascounty.org.

Foreclosure fraud seminar scheduled in Largo
IARGO The fourth and final free workshop alerting consumers to
the perils of foreclosure fraud is scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 11, at
Largo Library, 120 Central Park Drive.
Counselors will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to offer direct
assistance referrals for those who have either fallen behind in their
mortgage payments or anticipate missing payments in the future.
With more than 33,000 active foreclosure cases in the Pinellas-
Pasco court system, foreclosure fraud has become a real problem in
Pinellas County. Unscrupulous individuals prey upon those who are
in the process of losing their homes, promising relief, but providing
few tangible results.
Pinellas County's Department of Justice and Consumer Services re-
cently received a $100,000 federal grant to fight foreclosure fraud. The
grant was provided through the American Recovery &r Reinvestment
Act.
A Foreclosure Fraud Prevention Team has been formed with the De-
partment of Justice and Consumer Services as project coordinator,
along with Pinellas County Community Development, St. Petersburg
Neighborhood Housing Services, Tampa Bay Community Development
Corporation, Gulfcoast Legal Services, the Pinellas-Pasco Area Agency
on Aging and the Community Law Program.
Homeowners can get more information by calling the Pinellas Coun-
ty Department of Justice and Consumer Services at 464-6200. Addi-
tional information is available at www.pinellascounty.org/foreclosure.

Since the Alternate Water Sources program started in 1998, about
$512,000 has been paid out to utilities customers, resulting in an esti-
mated savings of 360,000 gallons of potable water per day. Customer
Service Director Bob Peacock praised customers who have taken ad-
vantage of the program, calling them "excellent stewards of the envi-
ronment."


Alternate water source rebates to end
The Pinellas County Utilities rebate program for alternate sources of

Under the 12-year-old program, rebates were available for up to 50
percent of the installation cost (up to $300) for a shallow well, deep
well, or surface water withdrawal system for irrigation. The program
was initiated to assist customers unable to receive reclaimed water or

festivities surrounding a back-to-school celebration on Aug. 31. Campus provost jim Olliver said
enrollment is up 12 percent over a year ago and 42 percent over three years ago. He credited the
economy and a larger offering of classes for the increase. About 4,000 students attend classes at the
Seminole campus.


Parent Aide program
Parent Aide volunteers are currently being re-
cruited.
Parent Aide volunteers are considered foot sol-
diers in the front lines of effectiveness on child
abuse prevention. Volunteers are committed to
helping each child's parent succeed at parenting.
The Parent Aide program seeks volunteers that can
help break the cycle of child abuse that may have
existed in a family for generations.
Those interested in helping a struggling parent
keep up with their children's growth stages and

John Detro
IARGO The son of a Largo man is training oth-
ers to provide medical care to fellow service mem-
bers and their families.
Army Maj. John F. Detro, son of Jack Detro of
Largo. is an instructor for the Interservice Physician
Assistant Program at the Army Medical Department

"in'b Samme a pyici~an n ssa n beexuse, in the
Army, they are the first medical officer to care for
the troops," said Detro, a 1981 graduate of Erie
Mason High School, Erie, Mich. He went on to eamn
a bachelors degree from Siena Heights University,
Adrian, Mich., in 1985.
The program has been training about 95 percent
of the physician assistants in the Army, Air Force,
Coast Guard and Navy since 1996. Prior to 1996,
each service trained physician assistants separately.
The rest enter the military with previous training
and qualifications.
"I enjoy being an instructor for IPAP," said
Detro. "However, with it there is great responsibili-
ty. My daughter is a soldier, so I expect every grad-
nate to be competent to take care of her in
garrison and in combat. It's why I'm so tough on
my students; every soldier out there is someone's
child. "
The IPAP is a commissioning program, and
many of the students are enlisted members. By
the time they graduate from the program they will
be commissioned as first lieu-
tenants. The students spend
12 months at Fort Sam Hous-
ton for in class training and
labs where they learn the
hands on skills they will need
in the field, by practicing on
each other.
nThe program is a difficult
one," said Detro. "Not everyone
can make it. There's a lot of john Detro
stuff to cram into a year of
classroom education and then they go out and put
into practice on real patients."
Once they have completed the classroom learn-
ing, Detro's students then go to military hospitals
around the world for 12 months of clinical train-
ing. They will rotate through several specialties to
get more hands-on experience with real patients
before they graduate from the program with a
master's degree in Health Science from the Univer-
sity of Nebraska Medical Center.
Physician assistants are the most deployed
medical officer in the Army. And while nearly three
quarters of the students already have a medical
background and more than half of them have al-
ready deployed in support of Operations Iraqi
Freedom and Enduring Freedom, they can expect
to spend a lot of their future careers, in the field,
helping other service members.

extra bucks.
He has applied for a grant from the Southwest
Florida Water Management District to fund outside
conservation kits that will be distributed in April
during the annual Green Thumb Festival, an out-
door nursery sale, in St. Petersburg.
The kits will consist of a rain gauge, a probe to
measure moisture levels of soil and a low-flow noz-
zle for use on a garden hose. The idea is to get
names and addresses of those receiving the kits,
track their water consumption and see how much
they're saving.
Berry said the school would continue its con-
struction of casitas for the homeless at Pinellas
Hope.
He hopes to start a new program that converts
methane gas from a lift station on campus into
enough electricity to power an air conditioner.
"This is nothing new," said Berry. "It's big in
China, India and South America.
"Let's teach people that we can be self-suffi-
clent," he added. "If we can do that (methane con-
version) here, think what we can do all over the
county. The savings would be tremendous.
Ultimately, Berry said he wants to develop a
photonics program, to study the use of lasers. No
other high school in Florida offers such a program
and only two community colleges do so.
The program would go with the school's current
curriculum, which features programs in electricity,
carpentry, commercial art, horticulture and envi-
ronmental studies, power and energy technology,
and veterinarian technology.
It's all part of the big picture that he calls image
construction.
"Wer can teach skills (to students) but we can't
make them grow up," said Berry. "But if we can
help them become better citizens and develop a
better work ethic, that's what we're shooting for at
this school."

months.
"Wer need to do more and more of this kind of
stuff," said Berry. "If we're less-dependent on (Mid-
dle East oil) then we won't have to fight as many
wars and have people getting killed."
Berry believes heavily in projects that his stu-
dents can use in SkillsUSA competition. Winning
medals and awards are among his strong points.
For example, at PTEC last year students devel-
oped a propane-powered go-cart, a solar-powered
vehicle and an electric vehicle with a solar backup.
All three projects won gold medals at the state
SkillsUSA competition and two captured medals at
the national contest in Kansas City, which fea-
tured more than 5,600 competitors.
Berry took 27 students to the competition and
16 won medals.
"Students are neat," said Berry. "You get them
started and they don't want to stop."
Berry is a tremendous motivator. On the first
day of school for teachers, he packed the school's
17-member staff into a hayride trailer and pulled
them all over to Sweet Tomatoes in Largo for
lunch.
He also is very community-oriented. Over a 15-
year span in the Orlando area, he donated 100 gal-
lons of platelets to a blood bank.
"T~hat's something I'm very proud of," Berry said.
"Probably my best memory came one year when I
donated platelets on Dec. 23 that were used for a
little girl on Christmas Day."
That same enthusiasm is something he hopes to
carry over at SVEC.
Among his early plans are to promote recycling.
"Wer have a dumpster here (for the community to
use) for paper," he said. "W~e'll be putting in a sec-
ond dumpster for metal and a horse trailer for
cardboard."
Berry has crafted a home-made compactor for
the cardboard from surplus chair lift that will en-
able school staff to bundle it. With the going rate of
$90 per ton, he figures the school can make a few

Beacon, September 9, 2010


By SUZETTE PORTER

More than 15,000 foreclosures were filed in Pinel-
las County in 2009, and in 2010, an average of
1,000 are coming in each month.
The increase in activity led to a decision by Pinel-
las County Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke to
take advantage of recent changes in state law that
allow clerks of the court to hold electronic sales,
said Deputy Clerk Myriam Irizarry.
Pinellas County contracted with Realauction of
Fort Lauderdale to conduct sales through two sepa-
rate websites, www.pinellas.realforeclose.com for
foreclosure sales, and www.pinellas.realtaxdeed.
com for tax deed sales.
The daily online foreclosure sales begin on
Oct. 4, and the monthly tax deed sales begin on
Oct. 20. Realauction will provide online training
and orientation sessions for bidders during
September. Complete instructions will be avail-
able online at the two websites.
Irizarry said staff from the clerk's office met
with some of the people who she termed "typical
bidders" and tried to incorporate their concerns
into the process.
She said several clerk's offices around the
state already were using electronic sales.
"We waited to see how they did," she said.
The wait allowed Pinellas County to take ad-
vantage of lessons learned in other counties.
Putting the sales online provides many advan-
tages, she said. Not only does it provide a more


efficient way to conduct the sales and handle the
paperwork, it makes the process available to
people who can't show up in the lobby of the
courthouse at 11 a.m., which is how most sales
currently take place.
"People can bid online in the comfort of their
home or offce," she said. "It opens it (sales) up to
a whole lot more people."
Foreclosure sales begin when the owners fail
to pay their mortgage and banks file for foreclo-
sure with the courts. When the judge orders the
sale of the property, the order comes to the
clerk's office.
Typically, foreclosure bidders include banks
that hold the mortgage and sometimes the prop-
erty owner.
Tax deed sales originate with the tax collector's
office, which issues a tax certificate for sale after
two years. The tax collector publishes notice and
the tax certificates are sold again in the lobby
of the courthouse. If the owner does not pay the
back taxes by the published deadline, the person
who owns the tax certificate gets the property.
She said in both cases, people have plenty of
notice and opportunities to regain their property.
She said moving the sales online gives people
a chance to bid even before the actual date of the
sale and post deposits electronically. At the end
of the sale day, the prevailing bidder gets the
property, she said.
The online process also protects bidders from
"sniping" those last second bids intended to


beat the clock to win the bid. Any late bids that
come in online add time to the auction, allowing
all bidders more time.
While the process will be more convenient,
opening it up to more people, bidding during
foreclosure or tax deed sales is not for everyone.
Irizarry said many times the properties come
with liens attached that become the responsibili-
ty of the new owners.
'"These properties are sold subject to all kinds
of liens," she said. "People need to be smart and
be aware."
"Realauction has designed the sites and the
sales to ensure fairness to all bidders while in-
creasing the number of potential buyers for each
property or tax deed which benefits bidders and
property owners alike," Burke said in a press re-


lease.r"The clerk's office will save time with the
new online process by uploading documents
once so all bidders will have simultaneous ac-
cess to complete information for each case."
Realauction will supply the software, hosting
the websites and providing customer service. Po-
tential bidders will be able to make deposits,
place bids, monitor auctions and pay for winning
bids online. Public terminals will be available in
the clerk of the court's offices. Proxy bidding is
available with advance registration. Registration
is free.
Irizarry said the staff at the clerk's office wel-
comes the new service.
'"This is going to help us with our efficiency
and streamline the process. It's exciting," she
said.

Pinellas Park approves
citV empIOyee raise
PINELLAS PARK -The City Council unanimously
agreed Aug. 26 to raise nonunionized city employees
wages by 2.5 percent, bringing them in line with
similar raises already negotiated with employees in
police and fire department unions.
The raises were approved despite an initial short-
fall in the upcoming, fiscal-year budget of $3.9 mil-
lion, which will be made up by tapping into the city's
reserves and possibly increasing the tax rate to com-
pensate for decreased property values. The current
draft of the city budget states that the pay raise
amounted to about $597,000 worth in salary pay.
The pay raise is in direct response to negotiated
contracts with the city police unions, which included
a 2.5 percent increase in salary, and the contract
with the firefighters union, which included a 3 per-
cent increase, said Dan Katsiyiannis, city budget ad-
ministrator. Giving nonunionized employees a
similar raise was only fair, he said.
"City council likes to treat all employees really the
same in terms of raises," Katsiyiannis said. "T~hey
recognized the fact that we've got good employees
here. In fact, they're regularly complimented by the
public."
So far, the city has not laid off any of its employ-
ees or used any of its contingency fund, despite the
recent economic downturn that has caused many
Other local governments to make major cuts in their
payrolls or increase taxes. Instead, Pinellas Park has
removed positions from the budget as employees re-
tired or left the city on their own accord. The elimi-
nated positions over the past three years amount to
59.5 full-time employees.
W've,~ become a lot more efficient in order to pro-
vide the same amount of service," Katsiyiannis said.
However, with property values still falling, the city
is still expected to come up short in property tax rev-
enues for the next fiscal year. Staff is recommending


a tax rate increase to partially compensate for the
lowered revenue and the use of general fund re-
serves to make up the rest.
Under this recommendation, the city property tax
rate currently at about 4.55 mills, or $4.55 per
every $1,000 of taxable property value would in-
crease to 5.11 mills. An increase in the tax rate won't
necessarily mean an increase in final amount an in-
dividual resident would pay the city, given that prop-
erties are being assessed at a lesser value compared
to last year. In fact, the tax rate "rollback" is de-
signed to keep the city's property tax revenue neutral
and allow the city to collect the same amount of
property taxes as it did last year.

Largo rejects fire union's
Offers OR VRcation, wages
IARGO City commissioners, saying they want
to be fair to other employees, sided with city officials
in an impasse hearing Aug. 31 on a labor agreement
with the city's firefighters' union.
Among the issues are whether a step plan in ef-
feet for fire-rescue workers should be replaced with
a pay range plan.
Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert said that
firefighters traditionally receive two increases annu-
ally through a step pay plan that's in effect. The step
pay plan, he said, is "no longer fiscally sound or fair
compared to other city employees, including our po-
lice officers."
"We cannot do business as usual because it
worked in the past," Schubert said. "Economic reali-
ties dictate otherwise."
The average firefighter-paramedic within the city
makes $57,300 annually. His or her total cash pay
including overtime and special pay is nearly
$62,000 per year, Schubert said. The total cost to
the city of the average firefighter-paramedic is
slightly more than $103,000 annually.
Raises are frozen for city employees under the

on his position on union negotiations.
"You did not give a convincing argument on why
the firefighters union should be exempted from the
freeze we have put on everybody in the city,
Holmes said. "No rationale whatsoever. It's just we
have a contract, we want it. Why should you be the
exception? It wasn't presented."
Mayor Pat Gerard said she doesn't begrudge the
firefighters the salaries the city is paying them or
the benefit package.
"But I do have to be fair to all the employees," she
said
Commissioners voted 6-1, with Commissioner
Robert Murray dissenting, to accept city manage-
ment's recommendations on the wage issues. They
voted 5-2, with Commissioners Gigi Arntzen and
Murray dissenting, to side with management on va-
cation issues.
City Attorney Alan Zimmet said the union will
p snwi tet po oec coll active ba11 a ning a~greee-
that night. If the contract is ratified, it will be in ef-
feet for three years.
If it is not ratified, the issues the commission took
action on would only be imposed until the end of
September. The parties then would have to start ne-
gotiations again.
After the meeting, Dix said the union would have
to evaluate the action taken by commissioners.
"I think the commission was a bit confused and
didn't understand all the issues," Dix said.

Fix up or pay up,
city tells Cabana Club owner
CLEARWATER After winning an expensive
legal fight earlier this year, the owners of the Belle-
view Biltmore Resort got the go-ahead to build a
38-room "boutique hotel" and restaurant on the
site of their run-down Cabana Club restaurant on
Sand Key. But nothing happened.
Califomnia-based Latitude Management Real Es-
tate Investors, owners of both the Belleview Bilt-
more and the Cabana Club, claim that in today's
sluggish economy it is difficult to raise the money
needed to build the Cabana Club hotel and restore
the Biltmore. Meanwhile, both properties are dete-
riorating. Clearwater officials can do nothing about
the Biltmore because it is in the town of Belleair,
but they have jurisdiction over the Cabana Club.
On June 6, Clearwater officials issued a Notice
of Violation, citing the Cabana Club for five specific
code violations, such as broken windows and
crumbling concrete. On Aug. 25, LMREI
spokesman Martin Smith appeared before the
city's Code Enforcement Board to say that the win-
dows, which were broken by transients, have al-
ready been replaced, and other repairs are under
way.
'Whe have the staff on board and we have already
started," Smith said. "T~he only problem is repairing


the soffit, and that should be taken care of in the
next couple of weeks."

Commission gives direction
on Dunedin stormwater rates
DUNEDIN The Dunedin City Commission
voted 4-1 on Aug. 19 to provide staff direction on a
preferred stormwater rate scenario. Commissioner
Julie Scales dissented.
The majority of the commission agreed on the
recommended scenario that would phase out the
Penny for Pinellas subsidy over the next three
years, and $500,000 capital reserve which is accu-
naulated over three years, and accelerate the Presi-
dent Street outfall and Brady Road box culvert
projects. The commission also agreed to keep a 10
percent oprating sostlans fncue oe ae n

creases for the public, the increases are less than
some of the other proposed options.
fI do' ewa~n~te Ife~el nik 1' 1n ah smat e
rate to make the operation self-sustaining and let
the reserves build slowly and look at it and that
would be my intention," said Commissioner Julie
Ward Bujalski. "I think it's slow, cautious, make
sure the projections are right."

Clearwater extends
taVerH ClOSing time
CLEARWATER What a difference two months
make. At its June 17 meeting, the City Council
took just two minutes to tumn thumbs-down on a
plan to extend Clearwater's serving deadline for al-
coholic beverages by an hour, to 3 a.m.
"I can tell you that I don't think anything good
can happen between 2 and 3 by staying open
longer," Mayor Frank Hibbard said at that time.
But a lot of things have happened since then.
Not only does Largo, which borders Clearwater on
the south, have a 3 a.m. closing time, but the
Pinellas County Commission established a county-
wide closing time of 3 a.m. Now Dunedin, which
borders Clearwater on the north, has approved the
first reading of extending closing time to 3 a.m. as
well. Individual municipalities were allowed to opt
out of the countywide closing time and establish
earlier closing times of their own, and Clearwater
intended to do just that
The council went into its Aug. 18 meeting ex-
pecting to rubber-stamp a proposal to keep the
city's tavern closing time at 2 a.m., but after listen-
ing to 16 speakers from the tourism and hospitali-
ty industries, all of whom favored a 3 a.m. closing
time, the council unanimously reversed its previ-
ous position and voted not to opt out of the coun-
tywide 3 a.m. closing time.

What a Dif f'rence ...

... A Day Makes. Dinah Washingon realized this when she
recorded this famous song in 1959. Now you can also see
what a difference a day can make in you smile at the 6"
Cosmetic Dental office of Dr. Blair Snoke.
One day certainly made the difference for the young man's
smile pictured here. His mother told us that he shied away
from having his picture taken and when a picture was L4, L
required never a smile. High school graduation, proms,
homecoming dances, social events, family pictures no
smile. Why? He was extremely self-conscious of his teeth Before Actual Patient
especially his "fangs." He also disliked the "space" between
his two front teeth and the size discrepancy of his "side
teeth."
He trusted Dr. Snoke to make a difference and as you can
see for yourself the change in his smile was dramatic! His
mother says she has never seen him smile so often! And best
of all, this smile makeover was accomplished in one
morning with cosmetic contouring and hand crafted chair
side veneers.
If you are interested in this type of cosmetic dental -I
procedure or if you want to discover what the possibilities
are for your smile, please contact Debbie at 727-391-9741 to
schedule an appointment with our Cosmetic Dental Team. After Actual Patient

Department, is

Paramedics Kevin
Mannion of Largo
Fire Rescue, on left,
and Robert Schleif
of Pinellas County
Sheriff's Office
during a SWAT
training scenario.


By JULIANA A. TORRES

CLEARWATER A man with a sniper rifle, the
scope of his firearm and his sunglasses peaking
from below the railing of a loading ramp, takes aim
at an approaching armed rescue vehicle as it rolls
into the parking lot. A group of four other "bad
guys," their own weapons drawn against the in-
coming law enforcement, guard the door of the
abandoned warehouse where they're holding
hostages.
Gunshots snap like firecrackers as five
paramedics unload from the Pinellas County Sher-
iffs Office armored vehicle, called a Peacekeeper.
Two Pinellas Park police officers raise tall shields
against the bullets as two of the medics approach a
body left lying on the asphalt and start checking for
vital signs.
"T~hat's a downed officer!" a trainer in a red T-
shirt shouts down to the group. "He's got no obvi-
ous injuries, you just need to get him in there! Get
him in the vehicle!"
They take the mannequin by the arm and start to
drag it out of harm's way, one tripping in his hurry
to pull the "officer" backward toward the vehicle.
Paramedics working with police SWAT teams in a
scenario like the one set up for them on Aug. 26
have to stay focused on several different objectives,
Clearwater Fire and Rescue Lt. Chris Hoyne, who
led the training, later explained. The patients with


gunshot wounds need attention one at a time while
the paramedics try to stay clear of bullets and deal
with the trauma of the high-stress situation itself.
"Obviously it's more dangerous. You have to
work with police, move with them and not be a hin-
drance to them," Hoyne said. "You have to get your
mind set into that."
Paramedics also have to learn to deal with the
unexpected, like an unarmed woman with red hair
who suddenly runs screaming from the warehouse
as red blood oozes from the fake wound on her
arm.
"Get down on the ground!" they shout repeatedly,
as she sprints at full speed, irreverent of the offi-
cers' raised guns and shouting in a panic to explain
the dire situation inside.
She ignores their appeals for her safety and runs
back inside. The Pinellas Park officers, with the five
paramedics following single-file behind the combat
shields, slowly make their way to the door where
the shooters have disappeared.
Inside the abandoned warehouse, a musty mold
smell nearly overpowers the damp heat. The SWAT
teams' boots splash through puddles as they make
their way across the huge, empty room. Amidst a
torrent of gunshots and the red flash of popping ex-
plosives, the paramedics prioritize the injured civil-
ians they encounter, giving the most attention to
those with the most critical injuries. The police offi-
cers stand guard over potential threats, lying with


hands on their heads after they're disarmed, but
still shouting distractions as paramedics work.
Usually, paramedics stay out of the way of an ac-
tive scene until law enforcement officers have gone
in and neutralized any threats. But sometimes,
medical attention is needed faster, while bullets are
still flying.
"There are only 50 paramedics in the county who
can actually go into that situation," said Hoyne.
"T~hese specialized trained paramedics can actually
start rendering care before the scene is secured.
The object is to be as close as you can to start ren-
dering care as quickly as possible."
Every time a SWAT team is activated, the
paramedics trained for those situations go with
them. If the scene can be contained quicidy, their
specialized training might not be needed. However,
if the shooter is hiding in a larger space, like the
warehouse in last week's practice scenario, the
SWAT paramedics will follow law enforcement in-
side and help the injured as they encounter them.
Last week, a total of 17 paramedics from various
fire rescue departments across the county partici-
pated in the "tactical combat casualty care" train-
ing, which includes about 40 hours of instruction
as well as the scenarios. The training and tactics
they learn are similar to those combat troops in
Iraq and Afghanistan use, Hoyne said.
Most of the paramedics are already a part of the
their respective agency's SWAT team. One


paramedic, James Comer of Pinellas Park Fire De-
partment, took the class in hopes of joining his de-
partment's SWAT team when they hold try-outs
this coming January.
"I've always wanted to do police department
work. It's just a little kid dream. I thought, 'They
protect us. Why can't I go in there and protect
them?' That's the way I look at it," said 35-year-old
Comer. "It's pretty intense training that they go
through. I loved every minute of it."
Before running the warehouse scenario, Comer
and four other paramedics got a taste of what it's
like to be the armed escort by raiding a practice
house set up on the Clearwater Fire and Rescue
training grounds. With their own police-issued
handguns raised, they cleared the house room by
room until they captured the active shooter inside.
"Everybody got a chance to feel what it's like to
be their operator ... just to get their heart rates up
and a little excited so they know how their opera-
tors feel," Hoyne said.
Hoyne has been a paramedic with Clearwater
Fire and Rescue for nine years. He started training
for the agency's SWAT team a year after he joined
the agency, as soon as he was off probation as a
new hire.
He said he enjoys the variety the position brings.
"It's not something we do every day," he said. "In
something like a school shooting, I like to be able to
go in and not have to wait outside."

Businesses should arrange for drop off and payment by calling Cre-

Unwanted household electronics and chemicals should never be
dumped in the regular trash, or in drains, storm sewers, or on the
ground. These products can be harmful to the enviromnent and to the
people handling them if they are not disposed of properly.
Each day, consumer electronics are upgraded or scrapped in favor
of technological advancements. Today's TVs, GPS devices, cell phones,
MP3 players, smartphones, video game players, computers and print-
ers quicidy tumn into tomorrow's electronic waste (e-waste). Improper
disposal of e-waste creates a significant problem because toxic sub-
stances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retar-
dants can leach into the soil and groundwater. E-waste is a resource
and should be recycled. Useful materials such as glass, copper, alu-
minum, plastic and other components can often be extracted and
reused.
As for chemicals, the average household can accumulate as much
as 100 pounds of chemicals inside the home or garage. Many leftover
household products contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive
chemical ingredients. Household chemical waste includes paints, paint
thinners, cleaners, gasoline, motor oil, rechargeable batteries, pesti-
cides, fertilizers, fluorescent bulbs and smoke detectors.

/ 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.

Noak Logan, 10, of Largo caught this redfish recently while
fishing in a canoe in the Belleair Causeway area. The fish was 28
to 30 inches long and weighed an estimated 11 to 14 pounds.


Recent rains have helped to bring our water temperature's down a
little bit. A couple of degrees difference can make a huge difference,
especially in the shallow flats. Decent reports of redfish are becom-
ing more numerous. Fall is typical-
ly when shallow flats and F~ ae
near-shore structures are visited is Tae
by schools of large breeder sized Capt. Tyson
redfish. Wallerstein
Tierra Verde is a great place for
redfish, places like Tarpon Key,
Jackass Key and Conception Key will all attract schools of redfish
throughout the fall. These small islands can receive a lot of pres-
sure, especially on the weekends. This can often make the fish


spook much easier than less pressured locales. A good option would
be to wade fish especially on the lower tidal stages. Target schools of
mullet as they make their way on and off the flats. Casting gold
spoons and top-water plugs will help you locate fish holding areas.
Further north, Boca Ciega Bay also has plenty of options for
those seeking fall redfish. The islands just inside John's Pass will
be visited from time to time by bruiser sized reds. Typically the
higher tides are best. Casting live pinfish under a float up to the
small oyster bars located along the mangrove's will tempt the reds
if they're there. Other good places would be the lats and oyster bars
around the Jungle Prada area and the grass flats around the VA
hospital.
st. Joseph's Sound is another popular area to target redfish. Large


barrier islands such as Caladesi, Honeymoon and Three Rooker Bar
will all see their fair share of redfish this fall. These Islands are big
and can often require an entire trolling motor battery in order to find
a school of reds, but at times the fishing can be fantastic. A good way
to locate fish along these expansive mangrove shorelines would be to
make long casts with a gold spoon parallel to the mangroves. Once
the tide is up the fish will often be found in that first 10 feet out from
the bushes.
Wherever you target redfish this fall, or any other time of year for
that matter, always keep in mind just how sensitive these fish are to
noise and vibration. Be courteous to other anglers and we'll all be
able to cash in on a good fall season.
Until Next Week get bent!

Anglers got some good news on Thursday as the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion agreed to reopen the recreational harvest sea-
son for red snapper in Gulf of Mexico state waters
for eight straight three-day weekends this fall.
The action coincides with a proposed open sea-
son for red snapper that is expected to be imple-
mented in Gulf federal waters off of Florida on the
same dates.
"T~his is just what the doctor ordered and could-
n't have come at a better time to give a much-
needed boost to our Gulf fishing communities that


have had a challenging summer, to say the least,
because of the Gulf oil spill," said FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto.
The regular recreational harvest season for red
snapper in all waters of the Gulf off Florida took
place from June 1 until July 24 this year. This
season was set based on projections of how many
red snapper could be caught by recreational an-
glers without exceeding the annual harvest quota,
which was established to help rebuild overfished
stocks so that anglers can benefit from better red
snapper fishing in the future.


However, recreational fishing efforts for Gulf red
snapper by private and charter boats was much
less than anticipated because of the BP Deepwater
Horizon oil spill, which resulted in fishing closures
and cancelled fishing trips in federal and state wa-
ters off parts of Florida's Gulf Coast. Consequent-
ly, the established Gulf recreational red snapper
quota was not met during the regular season,
which means more fishing days can be opened
this year.
Anglers will be able to keep the current Gulf
daily recreational limit of two red snapper greater


than 16 inches total length per person on Fridays,
saturday and Sundays beginning Oct. 1 and ex-
tending for eight consecutive weekends through
Sunday, Nov. 21.
"T~hat gives folks an extra 24 days to enjoy Gulf
red snapper fishing at a time when the weather is
usually very nice and on weekends when most
people are able to take off from work," Barreto
said.
Updated information about red snapper manage-
ment and regulations is available online at
MyFWC.com/Rules (click on "Fishing Saltwater").

Broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, tomatoes,
peppers, radishes, carrots, string beans,
peas, etc. Put the best on your table by grow-
ing these delicious vegetables at home or in a
neighborhood plot.
Referring to "Viegetable Gardening in Flori-
da" by
James

Septem- Gmdhe t
Stpestb e r stris a C a K h d b
good time Ruth Davies
broccoli,
cabbage, collards, lettuce, onions, radishes
and turnips. Tomatoes, summer squash,
peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, sweet corn,
lima beans, bush and pole beans like the
warm weather we're having now and should
produce before a Canadian winter blast ar-
rives.
That's quite a garden full of healthy meals.
With TLC, seeds germinate quickly, so don't
hesitate to start them yourself. Nurseries sell
starter plants or will have them very soon,
A reader wrote me he found a source of
rotted horse manure on the Internet that
helped his garden to produce a good har-
vest.
My very favorite crop is green peas. Pea
pods are OK, but I much prefer the full-sized
pea to shell. They don't get into the kitchen,


however. When weeding or watering, my
sweet treat is to munch on fresh picked
peas. One year, however, a varmint I never
laid eyes on, stripped the pod open right on
the vine and ate them before they were large
enough for me to harvest. I think it was an
opossum, as my ever-vigilant dog treed one
in the fig tree one night. Plastic netting or
chicken wire is easy to set up for the tendrils
to cling on to.
The heat and ample rain has "helped"
weeds and shrubs to grow like weeds. I may
wear out myself and my lawnmower at the
rate the grass is growing.
This is a good time to finish shaping
shrubs for the winter season. Any pruning
should produce new growth that will harden
off by the colder season. Notice: "colder" not
"cold" season. Predictions are for a more
normal winter. We can only hope the experts
are right.
Citrus trees produce better fruit in the
winter if they're fertilized in September. Fol-
low the directions on the package and do put
the fertilizer at the drip line or the end of the
branches where the feeder roots are.
There's still time to prepare vegetable
beds. We have seven months of good growing
weather ahead.

The Seminole High School Marching Band and Guard will be marching in the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade". There
has never been a high school marching band invited from Pinellas County, Pasco County, or Hillsborough County in the 84 years
that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" has been in existence. Until now...! We are proud to have this wonderful
opportunity.
Taking a band of 160 members and 23 chaperones over 1,000 miles will require a great deal of Fund-raisers including car
washes, tag days, candy sales, and band appearances cannot possibly provide the $1,700 per student necessary for this trip.
We are asking your help to sponsor a student, one of the 60 students in danger of being left behind. We know you will want to
join us in providing the necessary financial resources that will make it possible for our nationally recognized band to participate
in this famous 2 1/2 mile parade. I~~~imcel~: m~~hmlfmn

Pinellas County has been for-
tunate to have so many dog
parks and pet-friendly areas built
in recent years. Many county
parks now have fenced-in areas
set aside for our four-legged
friends to roam and romp off
leash, and there is even a dog-
friendly beach in Fort De soto
Park. These parks are great
places for dogs and their owners
to be able to play and interact
with other people and pets. With
such freedom does come respon-
sibility, and caution also must be
taken.
While many dogs enjoy romp-
ing and playing with other dogs,
some do not. Some are too scared
to interact, and others may be too
focused on being the "top dog" to
have fun. Unfortunately, some
owners also do not seem to un-
derstand that their pet is not
having fun, but rather acting
tense, anxious, or aggressive.
One of the responsibilities of at-
tending a dog park is knowing
when to leave. Even though the
owner of an aggressive dog may
swear that he is "just playing," if
a dog does not seem friendly, do
the responsible thing and leave,
and try again another day.
Parasites are a significant
problem anywhere pets congre-
gate. While heartworm preven-
tions and flea control can prevent
many such parasitic problems,
not all pet owners are as consci-


gate, so adequate vaccines are
vital. Both of these diseases are
prevalent in our conununity, and
can lead to severe illness and
often death. Other less severe
respiratory viruses may be
spread as well. If you see a pet in
the dog park with coughing,
sneezing, diarrhea or vomiting, it
may be wise to tell the owner to
visit their veterinarian, and then
politely leave before your pet
catches it as well.
Simply expect fleas and ticks,
and protect your dog before they
occur. These parks occur in wild
areas where fleas already exist,
and the influx of dogs makes the
matters worse. Be very careful
not to bring live fleas home, as
one female flea can lay 2,000
eggs and quickly infest your en-
tire house.
Lastly, be a good pet owner. If
your dog is sick, skip the park.
Pick up after your dog, and don't
just ignore the "present" he left
behind. If your pet seems nery-
ous or unfriendly, do not wait for
something bad to happen, excuse
yourself and try another day, or
play at home.
Dog parks can be great fun, as
long as a few precautions are
taken. We are fortunate to have
such a dog-friendly conununity in
this county.

entious about using such prod-
ucts. Hookworms, roundworms
and whipworms lay microscopic
eggs, which then contaminate the
soil through feces. Because the
eggs are microscopic, many peo-
ple won't realize that their pets
are affected by parasites, and in-
advertently spread the eggs wher-
ever their dog defecates. These
worms, in large numbers, can
cause severe intestinal problems
in dogs, and enough blood loss to
cause death. Additionally, hook-
worms and roundworms are
zoonotic, which means they have
the ability to cause disease in
people.


Hookworms can penetrate the
skin of people, and crawl beneath
causing severe skin disease, and
potential organ damage. Round-
worms may do the same, and can
migrate to the internal organs or
even the eyes in children, causing
blindness and severe illness. Be-
cause of this, one should always
wear shoes in a dog park, wash
your hands afterward, and con-
sistently use a monthly heart-
worm preventative that helps
prevent infection with these terri-
ble parasites.
Viruses, such as parvovirus
and distemper, will be more

Embracing,
Many minds of our generation are calling
for a return to America's earlier customs, to
the way things used to be. Let's ponder some
of our traditions, shall we?
one tradition I recall was sitting on the
front porch of an evening. The porch was a
substitute for air conditioning. It got Mom
out of the hot kitchen. It allowed people to
wave hello to their neighbors, and to keep
track of which boys were nosing after which
girls. Also, to see which brand of joy juice
Mr. Nelson, across the street, was sampling
this week.
Gradually porches disappeared. Next time
you drive the streets of Pinellas County, try
counting the number of porches you see. In
some towns there are more Porsches than
porches. Why did the porches vanish? Be-
cause that's not where the TV was. The W
was inside, forming its own traditions. Ex-
ample: the Ed Sullivan show and its great
acts, such as two llamas dancing the tango.
In many cities the front porch has been re-
placed by the front stoop, a series of steps on
which young people can assemble and wit-
ness a new tradition drive-by shootings.
Let's hope that one fades with time.
In fairness, I should mention a few Ameri-
can traditions that few of us want to see re-
vived. Such as slavery, stealing the land from
the Indians, and not allowing women to vote
or own property. But polite folks don't like to
recall such things, do we?
A tradition often practiced on summer
nights was catching fireflies. As darkness de-
scended, we'd get a glass jar with a lid. Then
we'd search for the fireflies. We might com-
pete to see who could capture the most. We
kept them in the jars as long as we could


Most amazing, as I look back, was the way
Republicans and Democrats could sit in the
same room and not insult each other. That
custom seems to have gone the way of the
rumble seat.
Good granunar was once not just a tradi-
tion, it was an assumption. Any fifth-grader
who said "Between she and I" was risking
two hours in study hall. A high-school stu-
dent who uttered his/her first "y'know" in
class was in danger of the teacher cutting
him off with, "No, I do NOT know. Why must
you keep using that meaningless expres-
sion?"
singing the words of our national anthem
was once a tradition. When the band struck
up The Star-Spangled Banner, you rose to
your feet and sang out loud and proud. You
didn't worry about whether to put your hand
over your heart or if your voice was as pass-
able as the person next to you. Your only
concern was that you might forget the lyrics,
or a line or two of them. Today that worry is
gone. Only a small percentage of people seem
to know the words and are willing to sing
them. Instead of a stadium or theater full of
Americans singing in unashamed unison, we
have relinquished our national anthem to
the vocal embellishments of whatever rock
star or country singer is handy. In the dust
and darkness, those trapped miners in Chile
sang their national anthem. Would you and

Traditions are important. However, next
time someone talks about the need to revive
old traditions, try this reply: "Sounds good,
but which ones are you talking about?"

without smothering them. Then we'd release
the survivors. This rather tame tradition last-
ed until the 1960s, when it was replaced by
marijuana.
Courtship had eight or ten of its own tradi-
tions. One was not kissing on the first date.
If a girl violated that rule, a news release was
issued: "Last night Amanda Tunkettor be-
came the neighborhood slut." A brief peck on
the cheek was permitted on the second date,
followed by a dry lip-kiss on the third. Before
the fourth date, the girl's father took the boy
out to the garage and said, "Son, do you see
this rack of shotguns hanging on the wall?
The one on the left has your name on it, in
the event you misbehave with my daughter."
Making fudge was another tradition of
courtship. Joe and Amanda might have
planned an evening of cuddling in the park.
Instead, Amanda's mother announced, "Whhy
don't you two stay home with us tonight and
I'll make a huge pan of fudge. Won't that be
exciting?"
Conversation was once an honored tradi-
tion. All you needed was a few adults, some
coffee and a quiet living room. I can remem-
ber my parents and their friends sitting in
the parlor for hours, jawboning away about
all sorts of things. No TV, no vacation slide
shows. Just exchanging ideas and opinions.

spiriH Prel il
It took a lot of haggling, but a tentative agreement between beach
conununities and county officials shows a conunitment to efforts to bol-
ster tourism.
County officials have agreed basically to allocate $35 million in Penny
for Pinellas funds to 1 1 municipalities for Gulf Boulevard improvements.
The money is expected to be allocated to the city beginning in October
2012 and payments will continue over a seven-year span through fiscal
2019.
Credit goes to leaders in the beach municipalities and county officials
will be working out the particulars over many discussions. Stung by a
sluggish economy and a shortfall in revenue, the funding allocation
could have been delayed indefinitely. But county officials recognized the
significance of providing funding, which must be tied to improvements
along Gulf Boulevard.
County officials recommend that a unified effort be taken by the
beach conununities on the projects, such as the undergrounding of util-
ities. Indeed, the undergrounding of the utilities, which Indian Shores
undertook a few years ago, has a strong visual impact on Gulf Boule-
vard and goes a long way toward enhancing the appearance of the corri-
dor.
Reducing the risk of fallen utility lines will improve public safety. Bet-
ter service reliability is also an argument made for undergrounding.
Whether they decided to use the money on funding for underground
projects or other work, the cities will have to get approval each year on
how their money will be spent. Such stipulations help provide accounta-
blt.
All mn all, the agreement is a win-win situation.

GUEST COLUMN


1 years young: Boy

Scouts of America
September has come and school is started again for our kids and par-
ents are all trying our best to make sure they are in the right classes
and that their afternoons and weekends will be fit family schedules and
interests for them, and for us too. My children have grown and each is
incredibly suited for what they're doing in their lives. I'm proud of them.
As a grandparent, and as a member of our conununity here in Pinel-
las County, I think that what our kids are involved in is incredibly im-
portant to who and what they'll become as they become adults.
Our society is so fiercely competitive for time. Just as when I was a
young man years ago, there are only 24 hours in a day. School and
homework takes a sizable chunk. In the remaining few hours each day,
we want our kids to leamn about their conununities, engage in good
physical exercise and be constructive members of social groups that
help to develop good character. Choices have to be made and some are
easy, others are more difficult.
The organizations that we choose are numerous. Some are new, oth-
ers are older. But I
want to invite chil-
dren and parents
to reconsider the As I see it
opportunity to join
in the Scouting ex- Charles Bailey
perience.
In this year of
2010, Boy scout-
ing is 100 years
young. A lot of people say that the image of a Boy scout is old-fash-
ioned. Is it? Are the principles of the scout Law antiquated? Trustwor-
thy, loyal, helpful, frendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
clean, brave, reverent? Is the Cub Scout motto too old? Do your best!
Are those camping trips into the outdoors so old that they're not fun
anymore?
Cub Scouting is the program for boys from the first through the fifth
grade. A boy and his parents leamn together the value of conununication
between parent and child, and they each leamn more of what makes
them special as a family. They begin to leamn about their conununities,
about nature, about sports, about arts and school and so many skills.
They develop strong self-esteem, respect, and have fun doing it. That's
important kids (and parents) don't join to leamn. They join to have fun.
Boy scouting is the core program for boys from age 11 to 18. A boy
starts to leamn more about independence and responsibility. He learns
alxnit the bWsc of cookingband naping and sci nce andtfir t aid,rand

of First Class scout able to take care of himself and to teach his peers.
If he chooses to work toward the long esteemed rank of Eagle scout, he
will challenge himself, learn to manage projects, and when he is award-
ed the Eagle, he will have achieved what only about 3 percent of Scouts
complete. He will be a marked man. The Eagle has long been recognized
throughout society as proof of the persistent and positive character of a
young man. All this said, they join scouts to have fun.
Venturing is the program for high school boys and girls that gives
them the opportunity to choose what their crew or their ship will do for
their activities. They leamn to plan activities and to leamn how to pay for
what they want to do together by earning money and budgeting. They
hike and camp in the high mountains and the desert southwest. They
travel to Alaska and Canada and the like. They put to sea in sailing
boats and leamn more about themselves than most leamn in years. And
yes, the reason they join is to have fun.
Character, physical strength, mental alertness, belief in something
more than oneself most all of us agree that these are important
strengths to develop in our youth today to prepare them for adulthood.
When we consider the challenges, isn't scouting worth looking at
again. I think so. Look into the program in the area where you live. Visit
BeAscout.org and see where you can join today. Or attend Join scout-
ing Night at your elementary school. You won't be disappointed.

Building the mosque will divide people
Re: 'Whzat (they weren'tMuslim?'Aug. 26.
Editor:
Thanks to Mr. Driver for giving us a view from his seat.
I believe that most of us can agree not all Muslims who are practicing
the religion of Islam are not terrorists or extremists. As Mr. Driver says,
we don't know who are extremists or moderates.
However, we who call America our home and want to keep it safe
from an Islamist political movement must inform ourselves of some of
the designs taking place here.
The iman who is the leader of the Mohanunedan sect seems to be the
main representative of the project. This man has been quoted as saying,
"America has more blood on its hands than Al gaeda."
He also has called America a "terrorist country." Anyone can search
online for this information.
The project I refer to above is the building of a Mosque at ground zero.
Americans have a right to know who is financing this $200 million
structure. A large amount may be from "petro" countries, Iran and Ara-
bia. In point of fact, these are the two countries that are the worst of-


fenders of women's rights and religious freedoms.
According to Dr. Walid Phares, an expert on Middle Eastemn affairs,
the establishment of a mosque at ground zero is not about religious
freedom but politics. Political Islam is happening here, an Islamist politi-
cal movement. Islam is a religion and a state. It's not about geography,
but ideology
If Muslims want to engage New Yorkers and the world on an interfaith
level, most people welcome that to have a dialogue on the subjects of
equality and justice for women and among all people, etc.
Muslims pray five times a day ... anywhere. Building a mosque at
ground zero is a constant reminder of who is responsible for the sheer
horror of 9/11. This is not bringing people together, but dividing them.
"Islamism as a movement is what extreme Muslims are attempting to
promote. Major political change will result" Dr. Walid Phares.
It is not about freedom and faith but politics.

Hard Rock plans new cafe
TAMPA A new Hard Rock Cafe will open at the
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa
before year's end.
"Wer are thrilled to extend our legendary Hard
Rock Cafe experience to Florida's most successful
casino," said Hamish Dodds, president and CEO of
Orlando-based Hard Rock International. "Hard
Rock's vibe and atmosphere will be a perfect com-
plement to this amazing entertainment complex."
Expected to become one of Tampa Bay's premier
dining and entertainment destinations, the 17,500-
square-foot Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will be con-
structed in the northwest corner of the existing
casino complex, nearly doubling the 9,000-square-
foot space formerly occupied by Floyd's restaurant
and nightclub.
Employees of Floyd's, which closed 10 days ago,
have been kept on the payroll for positions at the
casino or the new cafe. In addition, managers of the
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino expect to
hire additional employees for the cafe at a fall job
far
"This is a win-win-win for the casino, for our em-
ployees and for Tampa residents and visitors, who

John Fontana, president, seminole Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino Tampa. "Wre're making a multi-
million dollar investment that will generate a signif-
icant economic impact throughout the Tampa Bay
region."
Three primary entertainment areas will make up
the design of the new 350-seat cafe.
At one end, table seating will surround an elevat-
7.d stage s Ob ph ste osf r egl ryshedue ddpoel
Cafe bar will be highlighted by a dramatic multi-
media canopy, arched over the bar and thrusting
out to the main restaurant seating area, which will
occupy two levels in the center of the cafe.
An open display kitchen will include a "burger
bar" area where beef will be ground into hamburger
and formed into patties. A Rock Shop featuring
Hard Rock's limited-edition merchandise, such as
clothing, gifts, pins and more, will open as part of
the new cafe, which also will feature a new outdoor
patio and bar
SHard Rock Cafe Tampa will feature rock 'n' rol

anuchm acend ds vo nr IRoc 's memorabilia
what music video plays next in the cafe. Hard Rock
International plans to beta test new products and
presentation equipment at the Tampa cafe before
rolling it out to Hard Rock locations worldwide.
''The new cafe includes many of the most for-
ward-thinking entertainment concepts available
today," said James Allen, chairman of Hard Rock


International and CEO of Seminole Gaming. "It
draws from the considerable expertise of Hard
Rock International executives in Orlando, who are
partnering in the project with senior managers at
the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Tampa. "
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa is being designed by Klai
Juba Architects, Las Vegas, with interior designs by
555 Design Fabrication Management of Chicago.
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will open before the end

da, joining others in Miami, Key West, Orlando,
Destin and at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and
Casino Hollywood.

cluding 133 cafes and 14 hotels/casinos, Hard

Rated: PG-13
"Legendary" explores a teenage boy's journey to
reunite his family 10 years after the death of their
beloved father, a state collegiate wrestling legend.
Cal Chetley (Devon Graye), a bright, under-
sized 15-year-old is an outsider in the blue collar
town of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, known for its high
school wrestling program. His older brother Mike
(John Cena), a one-time high school wrestling
champion with whom Cal is estranged, left Cal
and his mother Sharon (Patricia Clarkson) be-
hind years ago after the tragic car accident killed
their father.
However, Cal is determined to put his family
back together. With the encouragement of Harry
"Red" Newman (Danny Glover), a charming, albeit
mysterious man who has a way of appearing just
when Cal needs him most, Cal joins the high
school wrestling team hoping his brother will
train him. What ensues is an emotional journey
about Cal's drive to succeed and his unwavering
pursuit to reunite his family.

counter quickly blossoms into what appears to be
a romantic late life love affair that takes us on a
heartfelt and wonderful journey which takes an
unexpected turn.

'Heartbreaker
Genre: Comedy and romance
Cast: Romain Duris and Vanessa Paradis
Director: Pascal Chaumeil
Not rated
"Heartbreaker" is an action-packed romantic
comedy pairing two of France's biggest young
stars: Romain Duris and actress/singer Vanessa
Paradis. A smash hit in France, the film was also
featured at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Charming, funny and effortlessly cool, Alex
(Duris) is a professional heartbreaker who for a
fee can turn any husband, fianc6 or boyfriend
into an ex. Alex has one ironclad rule: He only
breaks up couples where the woman is unhappy.
His latest job will put that rule to the test. The
target is Juliette, a beautiful heiress who is set to
marry the man of her dreams. With ten days
until the wedding, Alex has been hired by her fa-
ther to carry out his most daring seduction yet
that risks him being caught by his ruthless per-
sonal creditors, angry exes, and the beautiful
and independent Juliette herself.
But worst of all, will he discover to his own
cost that when it comes to love, the perfect plan
doesn't exist?

ment from a successful film career in the fall of
2008 and sets off toereinvent himself os eahip-

shocking and always riveting, the film is a por-
trait of an artist at a crossroads. Defying expecta-
tions, it deftly explores notions of courage and
creative reinvention, as well as the ramifications
of a life spent in the public eye.

sists of Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass)
and Frank Beard (drums). They were formed in
1970 in and around Houston, Texas. With their
album "Eliminator," and its worldwide smash fol-

nessed the potential of synthesizers to their
patented grungy blues groove, giving their materi-
al a more contemporary edge while retaining their
patented Texas style.

ater, both acting and directing. He was affiliated

house, Manatee Players, Richey Suncoast, Royalty
Theatre, St. Petersburg Little Theatre and Tampa
Players.

tion about the community theaters of Pinellas, Hills-
borough, Manatee and Pasco counties. Published

peal to the performers, the technicians and the gen-
eral public.

Francis Wilson Playhouse and West Coast Players
are among the contenders vying for awards in sever-
al categories this year.
Eight O'Clock Theatre earned nominations for
"Gypsy," "Moon Over Buffalo," "Steel Magnolias" and
"Singin' in the Rain." Eight O'Clock Theatre produc-
tions are staged at Largo Cultural Center.
Francis WIlson Playhouse received nominations

Carol," "Don't Dress for Dinner" and "Enchanted
April."

consideration for awards are "T~he Last Five Years,
"Whho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", "'The Boys Next
Door" and "Side by Side."

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will perform Thursday, Sept. 16,
7:30 p.m., at the St. Pete Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive,
Tampa.
Tickets range from $29.50 to $125. Special reserved seat four-packs
are now available for $99. The four-packs are available only in advance
and supply is limited. To purchase tickets, call 813-301-2500 or visit
www.sptimesforum.com.
The tour was originally set to visit Tampa earlier this year but was
rescheduled to accommodate the delayed arrival of the band's highly
anticipated new album, "Mojo." The album, recorded between April
2009 and January 2010, was officially released June 15. It's the
band's first studio album since 2002's "T~he Last DJ."
The new album showcases a wide variety of American music, in-
cluding rock and roll, country and both electric and acoustic blues.
Petty's characteristic imagery is at work in the lyrics, synching up
smoothing with the melodies.
Petty kept busy during the band's interim from recording new
music. Along with a number of other projects, he reunited his first
band, Muderutch, and cut the album they never got the opportunity to
make back in the early 1970s. Petty brings some of the raw spirit of
the Muderutch sessions back to the Heartbreakers. "Mojo" doesn't rely
on studio trickery: It's all about the band playing the music they love
and it shows.
'Whith this album, I want to show other people what I hear with the
band," Petty said in a press release issued by Big Hassle Media. "'Mojo'
is where the band lives when it's playing for itself."
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were Inducted into the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, their first year of eligibility. Since the band's
debut album in 1976, Petty and the Heartbreakers have generated a

string of familiar classics and chart-topping hits such as "Breakdown,"
"American Girl," "Don't Do Me Like That," "Refugee," "The Waiting,"
'You Got Lucky," "Don't Come Around Here No More" and "Runnin'
Down a Dream."
Rock and roll legends ZZ Top will share the stage with Petty.
ZZ Top, multi-platinum icons of rock, blues and boogie, have re-
leased a total of 14 studio albums and 42 singles in their decades-long


career. Formed in 1969, ZZ Top consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar),
Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums).
Beginning with a grungy blues groove that generated classic rock
gems such as "La Grange," "'Tush" and "Cheap Sunglasses," the band
then embraced synthesizers in the 1980s with the albums "Eliminator"
and "Afterburner." These successful releases included hits such as
"Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Sleeping Bag."
