SEMINOLE The city's proposed millage rate and
fiscal 2011 budget moved closer to reality Sept. 15
when the City Council approved both measures on
first reading at City Hall.
The second and final public hearing on both topics
will be held Tuesday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. If approved,
as expected, both will go into effect Oct. 1.
For the third consecutive year, the city is proposing
the same millage rate of 2.4793, which is 10.8 percent
below the proposed rolled back rate of 2.7794.
The rate ranks 10th lowest among Pinellas County's
24 municipalities and tops among communities on
The millage rate will produce $2.53 million in rev-
enue to be used for the general operation of the city.
The proposed millage rate for the Seminole Fire Dis-
trict is 1.9581, which, if passed, will mark the third
consecutive year at that level. It ranks third-lowest in
Pinellas County among 12 municipal fire districts.
The proposed 2011 budget is $15.2 million, which
is an 8. 1 percent ($1.34 million) decease from the cur-

tion department, $475,077; and Seminole Fire Res-

The city's primary revenue sources are intergovern
mental income from Pinellas County for fire service
outside the city limits, 41 percent; franchise fees and
utility taxes, 21 percent; ad valorem taxes, 16 percent;
other intergovernmental revenue, 13 percent; and

Mail ballots are growing in pop-
ularity in Pinellas County.
In the Aug. 24 primary election,
nearly 59 percent of voters partici-
pated using a mail ballot. Less
than 2 percent voted early at one
of the Supervisor of Elections of-
fices and just over 39 percent took
that traditional trip to the polls on
"We're~ really happy our voters
understand the convenience of
choosing that method (mail bal-
lot)," said Nancy Whitlock, com-
munications director for the
Supervisor of Elections Office.
Voting by mail has many ad-
vantages, she said, including giv-
ing voters more time to study the
ballot and make decisions. In ad-
dition, the paper ballot voters re-
ceive in the mail is identical to the
ballot available during early voting
and on Election Day at the polls.
The Elections office mailed
4,200 ballots to military personnel
and overseas voters for the Nov. 2
general election on Sept. 16.
Workers began sending out an ad-
ditional 238,700 to local registered
voters on Sept. 20.
The last day to register to vote
for the Nov. 2 election is Oct. 4.

PINELLAS PARK The new Asian Community Center has opened to
provide a variety of services for Pacific Rim residents.
Located at 5223 Park Blvd., the facility can help people obtain driv-

The center also helps Asian residents enroll in vocational training
classes and even offers free recreational programs for the young and
The center is operated by Marry Thuy-Bell, a Realtor and vice presi-
dent, and Thuc Tran, an independent insurance agent and president
of the center.
Both were bomn and raised in Vietnam, but the center serves people
from all Pacific Rim nations as well.
"Wer are here for the Asian people of Pinellas Park and beyond,"
Thuy-Bell said. "People face many challenges and we wish to help
them cope with those challenges."
Although it's an Asian center, the facility will not tumn away non-
Asians who might need assistance.

The Pinellas County Health Department
has $4.85 million to spend on initiating new
policies to reduce obesity and smoking, in-
crease physical activity and improve nutrition.
The health department announced Sept. 15
that Pinellas County was one of 10 communi-
ties in eight states receiving a share of $31
million in federal health funds to develop poli-
cy changes in all sectors of the community.
Maggie Hall, public information director for
the county's health department, said work
would begin this year starting with nutrition
and physical activity at daycare centers and
"Childhood obesity is a growing problem
and one First Lady Michelle Obama has
picked for her issue," she said.
Hall said the health department applied for
$10 million in March, but received no funding
in the first round of grant awards. During the
second round, the county received $4.85 mil-
lion -about half of the requested amount.
"So we have to go back to work on our plan
and do some retooling," she said.
The grants come from the Prevention and
Public Health Fund, a component of the Af-
fordable Care Act, Health and Human Ser-
vices Putting Prevention to Work program.
The Centers for Disease Control and Preven-
tion administers the program.
Pinellas County will use its money to work
on changing public policy, not an individual's
behavior, Hall said. She used the seat belt law
as an example.
"Whe all knew it was a good thing to buckle
up, that it was a good idea," she said. "But, it
had to become a policy and then a law that
could result in a ticket. Compliance wasn't as
good until it became a law."
Another example is the Clean Air Act that
resulted in smoke-free work places. Until
there was a law that said otherwise, people
would have continued to smoke at their desk,
It also was a policy change that resulted in
more healthy choices at fast food restaurants,
such as salads and grilled chicken instead of
The health department itself has a new
policy to stock only healthy snack and drink
alternatives in its break room vending ma-
chines. She said employees can still bring in
sugary drinks and less-healthy snacks, but
they are no longer available to purchase in-
side the building.
"The products (in the vending machines)
must meet nutritional guidelines," she said.
"Wer changed the policy in the building, but
we did not mandate that our employees not
make other choices."
Hall said food programs and vending ma-
chine choices in schools were another area
that could use a policy change. She said
making vending machine changes in schools
was a bit tricky because sales of snacks and
drinks generate revenue.
She said the recommendation is to remove
sugary drinks and replace them with
Gatorade, juice or water. Fried snacks can be
replaced with baked ones, and other healthy
choices can be added.
Pinellas County's schools are making
progress in improving nutrition, Hall said.
She recommended a website, nutri-cafi.com
where students and parents can go to see
food choices available and calculate calories
and nutritional information about the offered
meals. She said parents also could send a
message to cafeteria workers that restricts
foods their child can have.
The grant money will provide funding for a
team of nutrition and activity consultants to
work with childcare centers, restaurants,
worksites and other agencies to provide ef-
fective and sustainable methods to promote
healthy behaviors in nutrition and physical
activity, according to a press release about
Each year, seven of 10 Americans die from
problems with chronic diseases such as
heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
More than 75 percent of the nation's health
care spending is on those same chronic dis-
The grant money is part of the federal gov-
emnment's plan to prevent and control chron-
ic diseases by taking local action.
"It's all about setting new policies and pro-
viding healthy alternatives to people," Hall
Many people from Pacific Rim countries are local business and
property owners. They are involved in community activities. Just re-
cently they sponsored the annual Pacific Rim Festival at the England
Brothers Band Shell and Town Square Plaza Park.
Tran, meanwhile, also a product of south Vietnam, said the center
has an ambitious agenda, all aimed at helping people.
"Wer offer support to cope with social problems and issues," Tran
said. "W~e help people find housing, offer translation services, and
Tran and Thuy-Bell are most concerned over the Asian community's
elderly. Many live alone so transportation to doctors, church, hospitals
and even shopping is offered.
The center provides socializing programs during the week and on
saturday. It even has citizenship programs for those who wish to be-
come Americans. Future plans call for the construction of condomini-
ums for the elderly and programs to break through language and
Other barriers confronting Asian people of all ages.
The center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday. It has re-
duced weekend hours.

Unemployment is up 0.3 percentage points in Pinellas County

You don't have to be around Attractions Salon for very
long before a client will offer an opinion. "I really
love this place," said Becky of Semainole. "I never
feel pressured here. Some places are so fast-paced and
crowded. They try to push too many services other than
hair and seem unfocused. It sometimes makes me feel
very unlcomlfortabic. Attractions just does great hair."
Joanne Reeves, owner of Attractions, explains it best.
"'We have found that most of our clients primarily come
in for hair services and already have a favorite nail or skin
technician that they are happy with,"' she said. "For that
reason, we've eliminated other services and put the focus on
what we do best, and that's professional hair cut, color and
styling at prices that are extremely competitive. For example,
our Redken color, cut &r style is just $6~5 everyday, and Men's
shampoo and cuts are only $;15. We also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."
At Alttraction~s. they provide a non-competitive setting.
"Yrou'~ll find nlo independent contractors here." Joanne added.
"Attractions has been in existence for over 17 years. Since
purchasing the salon, I've made a lot of positive changes.
Recently, we hired new, professional stylists who are not only
Red kenl-tra inled. but thle) 're cmnployeecs of our company-so
our clients never feel pressured when they come here. They
can always choose the stylist they want, at a time that's
convenient for them. We want them to feel comfortable."
Reglla~r clients of Attractions knowr what Joanne means
by comfortable. Not only are walk-ins and last-minute
appointments welcomed, but many of the day spa''conlvens"
(who have become regulars at Auracrionrsl have learned that
this salon makes their clients feel like family. "They always
offer me a cold bel erage or a new styling idea,"" said Kelly
of Largo. "But what I really like is their great pricing and
the fabulous color and styling work they do on my hair. The
value here is incredible."
"We offer a new trend in Salons that is all about building
a clientele that expects professional qlualityv and expertise
from their stylist at a price that's more affordable,"' said
Joanne. "'We would like to invite everyone to give us a try
and see the difference our attention to hair makes. Bring us
your hair and we'll make you a star-guys. too!"
Attractions is located at 10793 Park Blvd. in Seminole

SEMINOLE South Pasadena Mayor Kathleen
Peters has joined the Florida League of Cities and
other groups around the state that oppose the pro-
posed Amendment 4 measure that will appear on
the Nov. 2 ballot.
Speaking before members of the Seminole Cham-
ber of Commerce Sept. 16, Peters said the proposed
amendment, if passed, would create a flood of litiga-
tion and delays in city and county business.
"It's not going to work," she said.
Proponents of Amendment 4, which is also
known as Florida Hometown Democracy, say it will
give citizens in a community "a seat at the table"
and a vote on new growth.
The measure would require a referendum for any
changes to a local government's comprehensive land
"This is one extra step so voters can have a say in
what direction local government goes on its land use
plan," said Peters.
Any decisions involving zoning, wetlands, trans-
portation, green space and other matters tied to a
city's land use plan would have to go before voters
for approval before it could be implemented.
The process would not only slow down the effi-
ciency of city business it would be very costly to tax-
payers. A special election in St. Petersburg, for
example, would cost about $295,000, Peters said.
The city of Clearwater would have to pay about

"I was taken aback by the recognition but I'm

Edmunds was nominated by Jamil Jreisat, pro-
fessor of public administration and political science

to assume responsibility for their decisions and ac-
*Provide vision and leadership for members of the
*Make difficult decisions in time of adversity or
*Generate new ideas and listen to others who
may hold contrary ideas, and set high standards of
personal integrity and moral character.
This award is in honor of the late Picot B. Floyd
who served as Hillsborough County administrator
and the city manager of Clearwater and Temple Ter-

Ga., and Alexandria, Va.
Recent winners of the award include Manus O'-

pending on the need for changes in the community.
Each change would require a separate question on
the ballot, Peters said.
"Indian Rocks Beach made changes to their plan
(recently)," said Peters, "and we printed a sample
ballot. It was 48 pages."
Amendment 4 mirrors a similar change recently
in the city charter at St. Pete Beach. In St. Pete
Beach, a referendum isn't necessary unless the
change will affect five or more parcels of land.
Under terms of the statewide Amendment 4 pro-
posal, there is no mention of parcels, Peters said,
which means any change will have to go before vot-
ers for approval.
If it's a county matter, it would take longer be-
cause counties hold elections only once every two
"For example," said Peters, "if you lived in Palm
Harbor and wanted to build a park there, it would
require a county-wide election. How much will it
cost to (promote) it county-wide?
Seminole City Councilor Bob Matthews said
Amendment 4 would hurt business growth in Flori-
da because of the length of time it would take cities
to make necessary zoning changes.
"Any business outside the state looking to move
to Florida will not come here (if Amendment 4 pass-
es)," he said. "They'll go to Raleigh (N.C.) or some
other area that's booming."

TREASURE ISLAND One of the final steps
toward installing new pedestrian crosswalks,
beacons and beach access signs along Gulf
Boulevard should be taking place soon.
The City Commission voted unanimously
Sept. 8 to pass a resolution authorizing City
Manager Reid Silverboard to enter into a
memorandum of agreement with the Florida
Department of Transportation to ensure the
city maintains the new crosswalks at city ex-
The city executed a similar agreement in
2008 with FDOT to maintain crosswalk im-
provements within the right-of-way of Gulf
Boulevard and this agreement will update that
one, said Public Works Director Jim Murphy.
Thne crosswalks will be at 126th Avenue, be-
tween 122nd and 123rd avenues, 102nd Av-
enue and 101st Avenue.
Thne city is budgeting a fifth crosswalk at Gulf
Boulevard and 119th Avenue.
Commissioner Carol Coward asked if the
crosswalks would use decorative bricks.
'"They will not have brick pavers," said Mur-
phy. "They'll be ladder-type crosswalks with a
painted surface, similar to other FDOT roads.
There will be pedestrian-activated lights and
The project is being funded by a $380,000
grant from the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration Trustee Council in con-
nection with the 1993 oil spill that damaged
Pinellas County beaches.
The project is being coordinated with the
NOAA Trustee Council through Volkert, a
Tampa-based engineering, planning and con-
Plans call for 23 double-faced architectural
street signs that will be mounted in the right-
of-way off Gulf Boulevard from John's Pass
south to 99th Avenue. The signs will designate
beach access locations.
The decorative signs, which measure 3-feet
wide by 4-feet tall, will be mounted on 7-foot
poles. Icons on the bottom of the signs will in-
dicate sites with car and bicycle parking.
A larger sign, measuring 48 inches by 108
inches, will be mounted at the 104th Avenue
Park, identifying the park by its new name,
which will be announced soon by city officials.
Plans also call for 39 new solar-powered,
"turtle-friendly" lighting bollards at the desig-
nated beach access locations. The bollards will
produce normal white light illumination most
of the year but will be switched to amber light
during turtle nesting season.
There also will be at least 18 educational
signs at the beach access sites to educate
beachgoers about native vegetation and
wildlife. Plans also call for 21 new "wave-style"
bicycle racks at various beach access locations.
The project also includes 21 36-gallon trash
receptacles and four new pedestrian crosswalks
along Gulf Boulevard.
Thne next step will be permitting. Once that is
complete, the actual installation will take place.

The Suncoast Chapter was established in 1971
and represents Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinel-
las and Sarasota counties.
Early voting hours, in effect Oct. 18-31, will be
between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., allowing more time for
people to cast ballots after work. Elections offices
also will be open from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday
and Sunday. In addition, drop off locations for mail
ballots will remain open on Election Day.
Whitlock said people could track their mail ballot
status and voting history via the Supervisor of Elec-
tions website, votepinellas.com. Look for the Track

The Nov. 2 general election includes two county
commission races, plus run-off elections for one
school board position and two Sixth Circuit judges.
Seven of eight state house district seats are up for
grabs, as well as one state senate seat.
Municipal elections are taking place in Dunedin,
Largo and Redington Beach. One Pinellas County
charter amendment, a referendum for residents
who receive fire and emergency services from Pinel-
las Suncoast Fire &r Rescue District and several
proposed amendments to the state constitution
also are on the ballot.
Other state races include governor and lieu-
tenant governor, attorney general, chief financial of-
ficer and commissioner of agriculture. Federal
elections include one senate race and three con-
gressional representative positions.

with 51 percent participating via mail ballots.
The 2008 election started the trend with a 400 per-
cent increase in requests for mail ballots happening
between the presidential primary and the general
election. Whitlock attributes the increase to the
change in the county's voter system that allowed the
same ballot to be available whether voting at home or
at the polls.
"Having the same ballot changed some minds,"
Mail ballots took the place of absentee ballots in
2001 when the state passed election reform laws.
The legislation went into effect in 2002.
Whitlock said another benefit of the increasing
popularity of mail ballots is that it saves money. She
said as more people vote by mail, fewer polling places
are needed, thus cutting down on the number of poll
workers that must be hired, and fewer ballots have to
be printed for polling locations.
Having more people vote by mail also speeds up
availability of results after the polls close. State law
allows mail ballots to be opened six days before
Election Day. Election workers begin running mail
ballots through the optical scanners on the
Wednesday before but suppress the results until
after the polls close, she said.
Pinellas County Elections office workers are hop-
ing for a large voter turnout for the Nov. 2 election.
Whitlock said a number of races were drawing a lot
of attention. In addition, the Elections office is mak-
ing some changes to make the voting process easi-

Pinellas County Schools collects 45 percent

Bank robbery suspect
arrested in Madeira Beach
MADEIRA BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs de-
tectives arrested a Madeira Beach man Sept. 14 in
connection with a bank robbery at the Wachovia
Bank in Palm Harbor; and an attempted bank rob-
bery in Largo.
The suspect also has been connected to two other
bank robberies, one in Pinellas Park Police Depart-
ment jurisdiction and the other in st. Petersburg
Police Department jurisdiction.
Michael Shane Chambers, 37, was arrested at his
residence on Pelican Lane and charged with one
count of bank robbery and one count of attempted
bank robbery. Additional charges are pending.
According to detectives, on Sept. 7, the sheriffs
office received a call from a citizen who reported that
he had located suspicious items in a dumpster at
the Madeira Beach Car Wash, 14801 Gulf Blvd.
Deputies responded, forensics investigators pro-
cessed the items and forwarded the information to
Detectives notified the Pinellas Park Police De-
partment of the find and a possible connection be-
tween the evidence and a bank robbery that
occurred at about 12:18 p.m. on Sept. 7 at the
Bank of America, 10200 66th st. N. in Pinellas
Detectives also contacted the st. Petersburg Po-
lice Department about a bank robbery that occurred
in their jurisdiction at about 2:20 p.m. Sept. 7 at
the Bank of America, 5701 38th Ave. N., st. Peters-
On Sept. 10, detectives responded to a robbery at
the Wachovia Bank, 33277 U.S. 19 N. in Palm Har-
bor and determined from bank surveillance photos
that the suspect might be the same individual re-
sponsible for all the robberies.
On Sept. 14, detectives were able to identify
Chambers as the suspect through forensic evidence
from items collected at the Madeira Beach Car
Wash dumpster. Detectives along with deputies as-
signed to the Sheriffs strategic Enforcement section
and the Pinellas Park Police Department established
surveillance at the suspect's residence.
At about 1:54 p.m., while the surveillance was
ongoing, the suspect entered the Bank of America at
6599 Ulmerton Road in unincorporated Largo.
While inside, a bank employee recognized him as
the possible suspect in the previous Bank of Ameri-
ca robberies in Pinellas Park and st. Petersburg.
The employee confronted him and the suspect fled.
Detectives said that about 30 minutes later, the
suspect returned to his home, where he was arrest-
ed by strategic Enforcement section deputies.

Preparing children for going back to school can be a
stressful time for parents. One very important checkup,
that is often overlooked, is a dental exam and professional
dental cleaning. At Seminole Dental, we provide dental care
for the entire family. Dr. Doyle enjoys treating and caring
for children of all ages. She supports and volunteers in the
Give Kids a Smile Program annually. This program provides
dental care to underprivileged children, making sure their
dental needs are addressed.
Birth to Age 6
Teeth begin to form in utero (before birth) and are
affected by many factors. These include the daily nutrition
and general health of the mother, as well as any medication
taken during pregnancy. The mother s lifestyle choices
including smoking and alcohol consumption, may also
adversely affect the dental development of the child.
Our office provides communication and guidance for the
parents and young patients on the importance of keeping
teeth for a lifetime. Seminole Dental is focused on
preventative care to ensure a positive effect on the future
dental health of the child. The American Dental Association
(http://ada.org) recommends a child's first dental exam by
his or her first birthday. One important dental concern of
this age group is early childhood caries also known as
"nursing bottle syndrome".
Daily oral hygiene should be supported by the parents,
as the child's motor skills are not developed enough to
perform thorough brushing. During these early
developmental visits, we create a safe environment for
young children to develop a positive response to receiving
We offer a complimentary "Happy Visit" to children under
and the RDH for the size, location, development and
alignment of the newly erupted adult teeth. Misalignment
or crowding of the teeth can be identified by Dr. Doyle and
the RDH and can often be corrected with braces.
This is a busy time for this age group. Many of these
patients are involved in sports and may also benefit from a
mouth guard to help prevent dental related sports injuries.
Ages 13 to 20
As this age group of patient's transition from childhood to
adulthood, they often present particular challenges to oral
health care. These may include complications from
bulimia/anorexia, tobacco use, hormonal changes and oral
piercings. Dietary risk factors are also evaluated as
frequent snacking and an unbalanced diet may increase
cavity risk. A diet including a high amount of carbonated
(soda) beverages has been found to greatly increase dental
decay. Hormonal change combined with poor oral hygiene
can contribute to periodontal (gum) disease in this age
A high number of patients in this age group are under the
care of an orthodontist. These patients require specialized daily
oral hygiene education as well as thorough dental cleaning,
which are performed by one of our registered dental hygienists.
We, at Seminole Dental, are committed to provide the best
dental care to patients of all ages. We look forward to meeting
your family and having the opportunity to provide excellent and
friendly dental care.

the age of 6. This visit will allow them to become familiar
with the dental office to eliminate any fear of future dental
appointments. Your child will meet the dental hygienist and
Dr. Doyle. This appointment is encouraged for any first
time visit, especially under the age of 6.
Ages 7 to 12
During this development stage Dr. Doyle and our
registered dental hygienist (RDH) provide education and
guidance regarding preventative care including fluoride,
sealants and daily oral hygiene needs. At this age, the
motor skills of the child are developed enough to effectively
brush and floss on their own.
Sealants are a safe, painless and low cost way to help
protect a child's teeth from decay. During this procedure a
thin plastic coating is bonded to the chewing surfaces of
the molars and/or premolars. The sealant forms a hard
shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the
tiny grooves of the teeth that can form cavities. Sealants do
not require any anesthetic and can often prevent the need
for a filling.
In addition, this age group will be evaluated by Dr. Doyle

a day treatment program designed to keep

Bay Pines, he participates in the YMCA's Sil-

The program can accept up to 60 veterans

The garden soil is ready and seeds or vegetable plants are set to be
planted. But wait.
One of the most time-consuming tasks for the gardener is to water.
Plants grow better with adequate
water. Just look at the growth
plants have had this summer with GOcade
more normal rainfall. Gardeners Ca~~~d
have experienced the decline of a
potted plant that missed its daily Rt ais
Most vegetables prefer to keep their leaves dry, so if we don't have
daily rain showers, (which I won't expect) one way to water and to sim-
plify this task is to use micro irrigation.
This method puts the water right on the roots where the plant needs
it. A minimum of water is wasted and will result in water and money
The big box stores sell kits, and the manufacturers have thorough
directions. Basically, water is delivered through a flexible polyethylene
hose that has emitters that drip or spray water where directed.
There's a tool to puncture the hose and the emitters fit snugly into
the hole. It can drip or spray half or full circles. There is even an octo-
pus method where several small tubes can carry water to pots.
My system has been in for eight years and winds around the back
yard. A pressure regulator goes right onto the outdoor faucet, attaches
to a garden hose and then to the irrigation hose. A pipe or hose clamp
seals the end of the bent irrigation hose.
The plan is to water the plants' roots. If they are placed close togeth-
er, as in a raised bed, the spray emitters should just meet each other.
If used in a landscape, there will be a distance between emitters and
perhaps a drip emitter would be best. To cover a larger area, there are
stakes with higher pressure spinning emitters.
It's very easy to change the placement of emitters by using plugs
where the water is not needed and putting in a new emitter elsewhere.
To make life really easy, put a timer on the system and it will run
automatically. There's also nothing wrong with turning it on for 15
minutes or so while doing a little weeding.
Just a reminder to water edibles with potable water, not reclaimed

Wall Springs Park improvements begin
PALM HARBOR The closure of the west end of Wall Springs Park
in Palm Harbor began Sept. 20.
Originally scheduled to begin Aug. 16, the closure was delayed due
to utility relocations and the contractor's timeline.
Planned to last for approximately six months, the area will be closed
to the public in order to excavate a portion of the "land bridge" leading
to the west end of the park and replace it with a timber bridge.
Completion of work is anticipated by early 2011, and full access will
be restored sooner if the project moves ahead of schedule. The timber
bridge is designed to improve circulation in the tidal areas north and
south of the current land bridge, improving water quality and habitat
The closure will begin at the fishing pier near the south parking lot.
Access will also be restricted at the end of the boardwalk leading from
the spring, at the point where it meets the concrete sidewalk.
A portion of the south parking lot will be fenced off temporarily for
staging of equipment and materials, but the remainder of the parking
areas will remain open.
The work requires a full closure of all access to the observation
tower, restrooms and picnic shelters located on the island portion of
the west end of the park. Pinellas County's Culture, Education and
Leisure department will not be accepting reservations for those picnic
shelters until all construction and restoration activities have been

Tampa Bay Rays right-hander
Jeremy Hellickson, whose 2.45
ERA at Triple-A Durham led the
International League this season,
is Baseball America's Minor
League Player of the Year.
Hellickson, a fourth-round
pick out of an Iowa high school
in 2005, completed his steady
climb through the minor leagues
this season. After making nine
starts in Durham in 2009 and
winning the MVP award in the
Triple-A National Championship,
he returned there this season
and went 12-3 in 21 starts, with
123 strikeouts against 35 walks
in 118 innings.
Hellickson also made his
major league debut in August,
and has compiled a 3-0, 2.57
mark in his first 28 major league
Because of the depth of the
Rays' pitching staff, however,
Hellickson returned to the minor
leagues with high Class A Char-
lotte when Jeff Niemann came off
the disabled list. He was called
up again when rosters expanded
The Rays' approach to drafting
and developing pitchers has paid
dividends for the major league
club in recent seasons, with Hel-
hickson the latest product.
With Hellickson's award, the
Rays become the first organiza-
hion to have three different play-
ers honored as Baseball
America's Minor League Player of
the Year Delmon Young and

Thursday's full moon will be a
much welcome sight for anglers.
Last week's low tides made for
tough fishing for all species. Red-
fish encounters are becoming
more numerous; schools of what
are most likely pre-spawn fish
should group up with the onset of
the full moon and its fast moving
Target schools of redfish on the
lower than normal low tides for
this time of year. Edges of grass
flats, over sandy bottom, have
been the preferred habitat for the
redfish even when the tide does
Deeper water fish may give up
their location by creating muddy
areas that can easily be spotted
when the suns up. My advice to
you would be to target any of
these mud balls that you come
These redfish aren't up shallow
like you might normally find
them so don't overlook any activi-
ty. Look for yellow tail jacks to be
mixed in and around the schools
of reds. So if you're catching
some decent sized jacks you're
probably in the right area.
Trout are congregating in a bit
deeper water somewhere in that
3- to 5-foot range. Look for those
areas that have plenty of pot-
holes. These areas are full of

/ 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.

If you've visited your favorite book store
lately, you've surely seen Hannah Winston's
most recent novel. It's set in a college campus
in the 1980s. It contains a lot of undergradu-

cocaine as a booster when taking exams. If
some of the book's characters seem familiar
to you, don't be surprised. This may explain
why Hannah was always scribbling notes to
herself during campus beer parties.

A recent morning I woke up at about 6 a.m.
to a small animal dangling from his claws
from my right foot. The previous morning, my
husband was awakened at 5:30 a.m. by a
small, rough tongue incessantly licking his
chin and tiny claws kneading his neck. Oh,
the joys of kittenhood.
Nick and I adopted Simon from Save Our
strays after Simon's sister appeared as a pet
of the week in the Clearwater Beacon.
Simon's playfulness and brains coupled with
his cuddliness and motorboat purr helped
him win out over his pretty but quiet and
sleepy sister and his other siblings.
We already had my two cats, but I thought
Nick needed a cat he could call his own. I was
right. Simon is wonderful company for Nick
when I am running around with a crazy
schedule. Nick would joke that my cats are
his stepeats, since I'd adopted them from an-
other rescue service in college before we had
met. While he loves them, there was some-
thing that just didn't feel his about them.
Simon is his. Or, better yet, ours.
I'd forgotten something, though. I'd forgot-
ten that having a kitten is much like having a
toddler. A toddler with claws. A furry toddler
with much less of a grasp on the English lan-
guage. There's the unfathomable amounts of
energy, such as when Simon literally takes
laps around the bedroom, leaping up and
over the bed, shooting under the bed, out the
other side, around the corner of the room
and back again. There's also the teething,
when Simon had to chew on everything -
toys, hands, toes, his own tail. Then there are
the early mornings if Simon wakes up, he

Apollo humors Simon and gently plays with
him. However, as any older sibling will, Apol-
lo grows weary of Simon play attacking him
all the time. It's common to hear a thunder-
ing of paws and then see a tiny, gray tabby
catapult off of Apollo, either leaping all the
way over him or landing on Apollo's back in a
very Tigger-esque manner. It's in times like
these when Apollo perfects his hiss and looks
toward us with desperate eyes that seem to
beg for respite from this tireless fuzzy shad-
ow. Nonetheless, I have the feeling that the
two of them will be great buds when Simon
matures a little more.
Adara, on the other hand, my 6-year-old,
long haired Siamese/ragdoll mix, has no
tolerance of this new creature in her apart-
ment. She starts nasty or at least loud -
cat fights that caused us to sequester
simon in the bedroom with us at night
while the other two cats had the rest of the
apartment to themselves. Poor Simon still
flattens himself to the floor in submission
when Adara approaches. We're still work-
ing out what we can do to help Adara feel
less threatened or territorial, and although
she has gotten better, they still haven't
worked everything out yet.
Despite these few issues, Simon has been
the perfect addition to our little family and
has brought all of us save for Adara closer
together. He knows when one of us is upset
and comes over to cuddle and purr until we
feel better. He is like our first kid together a
living being that is ours together. Simon filled
a space in our hearts that we didn't even
know was waiting for him.
doesn't care if it's 4 in the morning. He's up
and he wants food and attention.
The intense playfulness is perhaps one of
the most enjoyable of Simon's toddler antics.
We love sitting on the couch and watching
Simon amuse himself as he climbs to the top
platform of his cat tree, lies on his side and
pulls himself around and around the pole
with his claws, as though he is winding him-
self up. When he tires of that, he'll change
focus and chase his tail. He'll see it hanging
off the side of the platform and try to out-
smart it by going underneath the platform to
catch it on the other side. That usually does-
n't go too well.
Just like a toddler, Simon will play hard
and then get particularly mischievous and
troublesome right before he crashes and
sleeps for hours. But for however frustrated
we get when he has attacked our feet for the
millionth time in a row, he'll then cuddle up
next to us in a purring, kitty contortionist
ball of love. Our hearts melt all over again,
Of course like any new addition to the fam-
ily, there is sibling rivalry and dynamics to
contend with. Apollo, my 6-year-old, fat,
black cat, has accepted his role as big broth-
er with weary patience. It seems like he un-
derstands that Simon is just a kid who wants
to play and hasn't learned all the rules yet.

Largo city commissioners are exploring ways to help get the Largo
Golf Course back on solid ground financially.
In recent months they've unveiled a marketing plan to help increase
revenue at the golf course.
They also plan to get opinions from private enterprise on how to
make it profitable and also may consider leasing it. City commission-
ers expect to transfer $200,000 from their operating fund to the golf
course fund in the next fiscal year.
The weather and the economy are major factors in the poor revenue
stream at the golf course. Certainly, city officials can't control those
They also said that renovations at the golf course in 2007 may have
contributed to the decrease in business. Some players may have gone
to other links and decided not to return.
So, as some commissioners have pointed out, why weren't city offi-
cials more aggressive about marketing the golf course when it was ren-
City commissioners will evaluate in six months whether the new
marketing efforts will make a substantial difference in revenue at the
golf course. If not, they will be wise to consider leasing it to private en-
terprise or even exploring other uses for the property.
With so much money being poured into the operation, more city tax-
payers likely will demand changes at the golf course.
In the meantime, residents can help out by taking a swing at the
golf course with their clubs.
Kudos to the Florida Department of Transportation and its contrac-
tor, Flatiron Construction Co. of Morrisville, N.C., for finishing work
ahead of schedule and opening the new bridge over John's Pass.
The $77 million project, which began in January 2006, is a welcome
addition to the landscape of our beautiful beaches but more impor-
tantly its completion will likely have a positive economic effect on the
As do all construction projects, the bridge expansion was the source
of much economic stress for local businesses in the area, many of
which did not weather the storm.
The new bridge is a crown jewel to the area and will act as a positive
addition for traffic flow along Gulf Boulevard.
The twin bridges features two, 12-feet lanes in both directions, 8-
foot sidewalks, four observation decks and a new bridge tender house.
For boaters, it will mean a safer trip to and from the Gulf of Mexcico.
The bridge is 8 feet higher above the pass and the channel below is 40
In this period of hard economic times, the new structure will hope-
fully act as a positive force for commerce along the beaches.
Amendment 4 is a hidden tax
This amendment goes by the name of "Hometown Democracy" and
by the name alone who would not vote yes, it sounds like what our na-
tion was founded upon ... but it is far from that. It is an amendment
that goes against what our founding fathers put into play. Our found-
ing fathers created a system of democracy, where voters do not make
the decisions directly, but elect representatives at all levels of govem-
ment, to represent the "collective interests" of their community, from
the smallest of babies to senior elders. On a local level we have been
charged with providing leadership and guidance necessary for efficient
provision of municipal services and effective operation of the city gov-
emnment. Our position also has a quasi judicial component where we
have taken an oath to take the emotion out of our decision to review
the law as it applies and make a decision based on those laws, both
fairly and consistently, the fundamental principle of "home rule."
If Amendment 4 is passed it will require a voter referendum wheney-
er any city or county wants to amend its comprehensive plan. Most
people do not even know what a comprehensive plan is and/or says,
and this absurd law would require that a general election be held, and
that they the citizens vote on changes to it.
By placing it on the ballot this law will impose the significant costs
to be ultimately paid by us the tax payers. If it generates legal battles,
like in the City of St. Petersburg Beach, these costs will be paid by us
the taxpayers. If Amendment 4 passes, even grammatical changes
would ultimately cost the tax payer tens of thousands or as much as
hundreds of thousands of dollars to make the changes, and it would
fall on us the taxpayers. Of course this would be compounded if forced
to go countywide in a Charter County. I ask, is Pinellas a Charter
County?! Having attended the Charter Review hearings recently I would
sa yoestisant your city planning done by special interest groups at
election time? Do you want your money spent on trying to educate
people on the current law and the outcome of a law change? Do you
want your tax dollars wasted in the courts fighting legal battles created
by people with special interests? I as a tax payer do not.
If not ...
Say no to higher taxes, no to wasting the tax dollars we have already
paid and no to this nonsensical Amendment 4.
You know I do not use the bully pulpit of the council or the media
but you need to know what kind of costs the passing of this Amend-
ment 4 will ultimately cost you.
Comedy of errors

danstil n er aot 0ne tPier od, a 10ttfull stg is put out, bout you ca
I left the area for awhile, but came back to see they are still using
this same silly way of parking. I know that when standard parking was
there and they used lot full signs, people complained because at times
they saw empty spaces despite the lot full sign and the city wanted to
avoid these complaints by allowing people to still enter the lot despite it
being full. I work in the marina and have seen numerous near miss
rear-end collisions because people don't know if they can enter the lot
or not with the lot open, but the lot full sign out. I also have seen many
car back-ups because someone is hesitating and confused if they
should go in the lot or not. In my opinion, either don't use the lot full
sign and stop the confusion, or use it and block the entrance. It some-
times looks like a comedy of errors out there.
What do you think?

MADEIRA BEACH Although they live just a few miles away in
Largo, Carolyn and Mike Costello have made Madeira Beach a
regular vacation destination for their family.
Combine that fact with Mike's love for mini-golf and it's no sur-
prise the couple has opened an indoor blacklight miniature golf
layout in John's Pass Village.
The Golf Beaches, located on the second floor of the John's
Pass Village shops at 12973 Village Blvd., opened Aug. 13 with a
9 1/2-hole layout of miniature golf in a 72-degree controlled at-
"It's something different," said Mike. "It's neat. The first time we
tried it (at a site in New Port Richey), we had a ball. It was a lot of
fun because you weren't sweating bullets out in the heat."
'We wanted to try something new," said Carolyn. "We vacation
here a lot and noticed there's nothing for kids to do. It's close to
home, it's a passion and we thought it would be fun."
The black-lighted interior features three large murals produced
by an Orlando artist that complement the 2,700 square feet of
miniature golf holes.
The most challenging hole, Mike said, is one with an upward
ramp and a dog-leg right. The layout, which was designed and
built by Mike, also includes a fiberglass parrot and shark where
golf balls end up after the final hole is completed.
The cost for two rounds is $5.25 per person.
If all goes well, the couple said their long-term goal is to open
another location, perhaps in St. Pete Beach or Clearwater Beach.
"Parents can relax (inside) and let the kids play," Mike said.
'We want people to relax and have fun."
Plans call for the addition of six arcade games and possibly
beer and wine for parents to enjoy while the kids play.
The Golf Beaches is open Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and
Thursday, noon to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, noon to 10

high school she never wants to see again? Upon Mami's arrival home,
she can't help but be annoyed as she watches her father, Mark (Victor
Garber); little brother, Ben (Billy Unger); and even Grandma Bunny
(Betty White) welcome Joanna into their family like she's an angel.
They have no idea how much Joanna tonnented Mami during high
school. Meanwhile, Joanna acts like nothing bad ever happened.
Then the untenable situation takes another twist when Joanna's
aunt, Ramona (Sigoumey Weaver), a highly successful, career-driven
woman, flies in from Europe for the wedding festivities.
Evidently, Ramona and Gail also attended the same high school
some 30 years ago, and though they claim camaraderie, they, too.
have some rivalry that stems from their teenage years.
Added to the mix in the jam-packed long weekend are Georgia King
(Kristin Chenoweth), the "wedding-extraordinator, who specializes in
top-of-the-line event planning, Charlie (Sean Wing), Will's high school
friend and best man, and Tim (Kyle Bomheimer), Joanna's fonner fi-

tion.com. Four decades after their first concert to-
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." "Dept
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 hannonizing 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"
and "Long Time Gone."

it is up to soren to make a daring
escape with the help of other
brave young owls.
Together they soar across the
sea and through the mist to find
the Great Tree, home of the leg-

Soren's only hope of defeating the

The following will open in limit-

Director: Rodrigo Cortes
Paul Conroy is not ready to die.
But when he wakes up six feet
underground with no idea of who
put him there or why, life for the
truck driver and family man in-
stantly becomes a hellish strug-
gle for survival. Buried with only
a cell phone and a lighter, his
contact with the outside world
and ability to piece together clues
that could help him discover his
location are maddeningly limited.
Poor reception, a rapidly draining
battery, and a dwindling oxygen
supply become his worst enemies
in a tightly confined race against
time, fighting panic, despair and
delirium, Paul has only ninety
minutes to be rescued before his
worst nightmare comes true.
Genre: Drama and biopic
Cast: James Franco, David
Strathairn, Alan Alda and Jeff
Director: Robert Epstein and
James Franco stars as the
young Allen Ginsberg poet,
counter-culture adventurer and
chronicler of the Beat Genera-
In his famously confessional,
leave-nothing-out style, Ginsberg
recounts the road trips, love af-
fairs and search for personal lib-
eration that led to the most
timeless and electrifying work of
his career, the poem "Howl."
Meanwhile, in a San Francisco
courtroom, "Howl" is on trial.
Prosecutor Ralph McIntosh
(strathairn) sets out to prove that
the book should be banned,
while suave defense attorney
Jake Ehrlich (Hamm) argues fer-
vently for freedom of speech and
creative expression. The proceed-
ings veer from the comically ab-
surd to the passionate as a host
of unusual witnesses (Jeff
Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker,
Treat Williams, Alesssandro
Nivola) pit generation against
generation and art against fear in
front of conservative Judge Clay-
ton Horn (Bob Balaban).
"Howl" is simultaneously a
portrait of a renegade artist
breaking down barriers to find
love and redemption and an
imaginative ride through a
prophetic masterpieces that

Based on the novel by New
York Times best-selling author
Karen Kingsbury, "Like Dande-
lion Dust" is a compelling drama

through the gritty and realistic
lives of the struggling, blue-collar

Campbell family. Their lives inter-
