Makower, who is also co-founder of
Clean Edge Inc., a research and consult-

for clean energy technologies, said many
corporations are already heading in the
Coca-Cola, for example, is cutting
down on the amount of plastic it uses in
its bottles. SC Johnson is working to
eliminate toxicity levels in cleaning prod-

for its products but also in its packaging.
Walmart, he said, is pushing its entire
supply chain to become more environ-
mentally responsible, and Best Buy is
positioning itself to become the go-to
company for all smart technology.
Makower said business model innova-
tion is the key, such as stronger materi-
als management and in some cases
chemical management practices.
"More companies are committing to
zero-waste operations with nothing going
to landfills," he said. "There's lots of in-
novation going on."
Makower pointed to DuPont Chemi-

IARGO One of the nation's foremost
spokesmen on green-related issues says
he believes we have about 13 years to get
the world into a cleaner, more environ-
mentally conscious position.
That was the message Sept. 24 when
Joel Makower, chairman and executive
editor of Greener World Media and cre-
ator of GreenBiz.com, delivered the
keynote address at the fourth annual
Taking The Next Step Business and Edu-
cation Summit, presented by Worknet
Pinellas at the St. Petersburg College
Speaking before about 200 area busi-
ness and education leaders, Makower
stressed the importance of businesses
doing more to go green and making the
planet a cleaner place to live.
"'Tm not a doom and gloom person or a
proponent of 2012, or anything like
that," said Makower. "But all of this
(transitioning to green practices) is hap-
pening much too slowly."
He said he believes recent climatic
variances are an indication of the envi-
ronmental perils that could lie ahead if
more greener practices are not imple-

Starting Oct. 1, the fee will be charged for any
animal, including raccoons and opossums, etc.
The fee is expected to bring in another $30,000.
*Increase from $255 to $325 for bingo licenses,
which will bring in an estimated additional
$11,200 in revenue for Justice and Consumer
*The Pinellas County Health Department will
charge $125 instead of $100 for annual operating
permits for pools and spas to generate an addi-
tional $2,600 a year. A new $25 late fee for public
swimming pool permits will bring in an estimated
$10,000. The biggest amount of new revenue,
$36,930, would come from an increase in fees for
vasectomies and tubal ligations to cover costs of
*New fees in Real Estate Management are ex-
pected to bring in $2,000. These fees include ac-
cess and use permits on county property of $100
for trail access; $132 for landscape, commercial;
$100 for monitoring wells; and $65 for walk-
through coordination per department.
*The Planning Department expects to generate
an additional $1,750 by charging a new $350 fee
for petitioners requesting a hearing continuance.
Planning also will change its variances fees from
$385 to $375 for residential and $500 commer-
cial. The fee for public hearing advertising fees for
land use changes is going from actual cost to
$250 for small scale and $750 large scale. Plan-
ning also is increasing the fee to review/revised
developer agreements from $1,290 to $1,500. The
net revenue impact from those three fee changes
is expected to be minimal.
Other fee changes with estimated "minimal im-
pact to the budget," include:
*Increased fees for marina trailer storage from
$45 per unit a month to $40 to $50 a month to
"provide flexibility in response to the local mar-
*Commercial photography fees at county parks
and other venues will change from $300 for three
hours and $150 for each additional hour to $300
per half day and $500 for all day.
*A new $25 fee to be charged to airlines for
each use of the passenger loading bridges.
*Public works expects minimal revenue impact
from several fee increases, such as subdivision
plat review fees, which will increase from $1,500
plus $12 per lot to $1,950 plus $16 per lot. Mon-
ument inspection fees will go up from $90 to
$120; subdivision inspection fees will increase
from $280 initial and $140 for re-inspection to
$365 initial and $185 re-inspection; and a 30 per-
cent increase in fees for special event permits and
right-of-way utilization permits.

CLEARWATER Some Pinellas County services
will cost more when the new budget year begins
County commissioners approved a resolution
on Sept. 21 setting user fees for services provided
by various governmental departments, Utilities
and the st. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport fund.
"As part of the development of the fiscal year
2011 proposed budget, departments were asked
to review their fees for opportunities to enhance
recovery from specific benefiting parties and re-
lieve pressure on property taxes," said documents
provided to the commissioners. "Departments
were challenged to recover both direct and indi-
rect (i.e. overhead) costs as long as we remain
competitive with other public/private service
staff estimates that new fees and changes to
existing fees will generate an additional $374,950
in general fund revenue.
Cost recovery for the medical examiner's labo-
ratory investigative services is estimated to gener-
ate $300,000 of the total amount.
General fund revenue from user fees is estimat-
ed to total $6.8 million in fiscal year 2011.
Fee changes for other funds are estimated to
bring in an additional $1.3 million.
Utilities Water System Fund will benefit from
new annual fees for backflow device maintenance.
These fees, which range in cost from $9.72 for
residential to $103.26 for commercial/multi-fami-
ly, will be billed on a bi-monthly basis beginning
Feb. 1, 2011.
Utilities anticipates an additional $675,000 in
revenue a year from the new fees.
Increases in fees to recover costs to the sewer
system fund will generate an additional $2,000.
These fees are not part of the regular water,
sewer and solid waste rates that will be approved
by a separate resolution set for consideration at a
public hearing on Sept. 28.
staff estimates that changes in building and in-
spection fees will generate $357,000 for the Build-
ing &r Development Review Services Fund, based
on a proposed 10 percent increase for cost recov-
ery. Cost recovery is estimated at 83 percent.
Other estimated revenue increases from new
fees or fee changes, include:
*A $20 new fee for animals surrendered to the
Pinellas County Animal Shelter. Charges may be
waived when appropriate, according to staff notes,
"as the fee is not intended to dissuade people from
surrendering an animal." The fee is expected to
generate $30,000 in new money.
Animal Services also will implement a change to
its $30 fee for pickup and delivery of animals.
Currently, the fee is charged if the person owns

School children throughout Pinellas will be participating in the 13th
annual Intemnational Walk to School on Wednesday, Oct. 6.
This is the 11Ith year that local crossing guards, conununity policing
officers, parents and teachers have accompanied students walking and
biking to school during the annual event.
The purpose is to promote pedestrian safety, health, fitness and
conununity involvement, according to Cecilia Barreda, public infonna-
tion specialist with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
Barreda said Walk to School Day is a good opportunity to remind
students of pedestrian safety and practice how it's done.
"Wer want them to leamn to take precautions to get to school safely
every day," Barreda said.
Some of the pedestrian safety lessons students will practice include
always crossing a street at a marked crossing path or intersection.
Waiting until a vehicle comes to a stop and making eye contact with
the driver to make sure you are seen. Walk facing traffic. Use estab-
lished safe routes.
"Whhen they get close to school and their crossing guard, abide by
their conunands," Barreda said.
She said crossing guards located at school crossing locations within
the sheriffs jurisdiction and municipalities that contract sheriffs serv-
ices develop a relationship with the children they meet every day.
"T~hey're there to help," she said.
Students that ride bicycles to school also should follow the pedestri-
an safety rules. In addition, they should wear a helmet and leamn hand
signals, Barreda said.
More than 30 Pinellas County schools plan to take part in this year's
event. Activities begin the day before with announcements at the
schools. Each school plans its own activities.
"But all take steps to practice safety as they go along," Barreda said.
Barreda said motorists might want to allow extra time or take an al-
temnate route on Walk to School Day as larger than usual numbers of
adults and children likely will be found along routes to the participat-
As of Sept. 24, 31 schools had signed up to participate.
The Intemnational Walk to School Day began in 1997.

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 Semninole. "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 uncomfortable. 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 w ithl." 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 & style is just 565 everyday, and Men's
shampoo and cuts are only $15. We also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."
At Attractions, they provide a non-competitive setting.
''You'lll find no 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
Redlken-trained,. but they're employees 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 then. Wle want then to feel comfortablee"
Regular clients of Attractions know what Joannle means
by comfortable. Not only are walk-ins and last-minute
appointments welcomed, but many of the day spa "converts"
(who have become regulars at Attractions) have learned that
this salon makes their clients feel like family. "They always
offer me a cold bel eralge or a new styling, idea,"" said K~elly
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 quality 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-gu. s. too!'"
Attractions is located at 10793 Park Blvd. in Seminole

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH Pinellas Suncoast
Fire &r Rescue Chief Russell Livemois announced
his retirement from the department effective
Sept. 2, 2010.
Livemois, a 29-year veteran of PSF&rRD, has
served as chief since 2005. During his tenure as
the top firefighter in the brigade Livemois shep-
herded the department through budget and rate
increase battles that in 2008 resulted in the fire
district receiving a rate increase of $70, from
$190 to $260 per household. The rate is a flat fee
as opposed to an ad valorem tax which varies
substantially from property to property depend-
ing on value.
A November ballot item calls for a referendum
to change the funding schedule for PSF&rRD and
allow for annual cost of living increases. If
passed, the change would take effect in 2012.
The Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District is
the only one of 18 fire districts in Pinellas County
not funded by ad valorem taxes.
Livemois, reached by phone while out of town
said, "TThe board asked me to stay on until a re-
placement could be found and of course I will do
The 52-year-old chief went on to say, "I have
enjoyed working with the crews I've been part of
and our board and staff over the years. I am
proud to be a member of thisede artment.'Dsrc
currently employs 45 paid firefighters and 25 vol-
Tom Hafner, PSF&rRD board chairman said,
"Russ has been a key member of our department
from the beginning; he worked his way up
through the ranks and as chief played a critical
role in keeping our heads above water during fi-
nancially stressed times. He's a great administra-
tor and leader, all the more critical when you're
saving lives and property."
Hafher, who said the department has received
some 12 or 13 highly qualified applications for
the position gave no indication when the selec-
tion process would be complete.
"We're going through the applications now," he
said. "Chief Livemois has still got his hand on the
Hafher said the department was not actively
seeking to promote from within the department,
but rather they were conducting a national
search to replace Livemois.
Livemois has a younger brother, David, who is
a lieutenant with PSF&rRD and two other broth-
ers, one a retired sheriffs offcer and another still
active with the K-9 unit of the Pinellas County

TREASURE ISIAND City Commissioners decid-
ed Sept. 22 to move forward on a proposal by the
Gulf Beaches Rotary Club for a four-day festival at
the Treasure Island Park and Community Center.
The Spring Festival and Carnival would take
place Thursday, March 17 through Sunday, March
'This is the first of many that we hope to have,"
said Harry Black, a spokesman for the Rotary Club,
at a city workshop. "It's going to be a big event and
we plan on making lots of money.
Black said the club wants to partner with Bill Ed-
wards, owner of the Treasure Island Yacht and Ten-
nis Club, and the city to stage the event.
Proceeds would go to the Rotary's Children Foun-
dation, the Bill Edwards Children Foundation and
the city's scholarship fund.
The tentative schedule is Thursday, 3 to 11 p.m.;
Friday and Saturday, noon to 11 p.m.; and Sunday,
noon to 8 p.m.
Parking would be available in lots around the
park and on the beach. Cathy Hayduke, director of
the city's parks and recreation department, said the
city would waive metered parking but would charge
a nominal amount on the beach.
Plans call for carnival rides by Wade Shows Inc.,
games, food vendors and live entertainment.
Commissioner Alan Bildz asked how many cami-
val rides would be included.
"(Wade Shows) hasn't been out to survey the
property yet," said Black, "but I'm going to say be-
tween 12 and 15."
The Rotary club would receive 25 percent of all
Black said the Rotary club has already contacted
the Treasure Island Chamber of Commerce about a
Market in the Park event on Friday, March 18 and
has agreed to pay the chamber a fee for canceling
A Thursday bingo game at the community center
would be moved to City Hall.
In other action, the commission:
*Moved forward on a proposed resolution that
would extend for one year the city's agreement with
Pinellas County to provide first responder advanced
life support emergency medical services. The city
would receive $368,536, which is lower than the
current fiscal year due to a $32,750 reduction for
vehicle repla ement resenrue fudion t roie
$86,200 in funding to the Gulf Beaches Public Li-
brein tfm scalyar 20Bob Minning said the city
would need to file again for beach renourishment
sooner than normal because the current renourish-
ment project was suspended before it was complete.
Minning said the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection decided midway through the proj-
ect that the grain samples of sand being replaced on
the beaches didn't meet state requirements.
"It was a bureaucratic move in Tallahassee," said
Minning. "Hopefully, we can ride it out for the next
two or three years.
The decision caught local officials and the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, which is performing the
renourishment, off guard.
Minning said he wasn't sure how far along the
project was when it was suspended but said it was
more than halfway complete. He said the city would
likely have to consider renourishment again in 2013
and piggyback with an Upham Beach project.
A lawsuit filed by residents of Sunset Beach
against the city of Treasure Island was dismissed
Sept. 21 by Circuit Court Judge David Demers.
Demers granted a request by the city to dismiss
the court's writ of mandamus and the Sunset Beach
residents' second amended complaint.
Writs of mandamus are used to force proper en-
forcement of zoning ordinances by public officials.
In this case, City Manager Reid Silverboard and
code enforcement officer Neal Schwartz were named
as defendants as part of a lawsuit by the Sunset
Beach residents to get the city to enforce its zoning
ordinances in relation to problems surrounding
Caddy's on the Waterfront.
Demers ruled the dismissal as to the individual
defendants is with prejudice. The dismissal in rela-
tion to the city is without prejudice, which means
the Sunset Beach residents have 20 days to amend.
The original case, filed by 15 Sunset Beach home-
owners in December, was designed to determine
what, if any, violations of the city's zoning and land
use regulations have taken place and to what degree
Caddy's on the Waterfront is an "unlawful public
nuisance." It named the city and Caddy's on the
Waterfront as defendants.
Caddy's was later dropped as a defendant,

lic hearing on Sept. 23.
The millage rate is 1.94, which is the same as the
current rate. The budget goes into effect Oct. 1.

In an unexpected move, Pinellas Suncoast Transit
Authority Executive Director Tim Garling an-
nounced his resignation on Sept. 15.
His last day on the job will be Oct. 18.
In a letter to the PSTA board, Garling writes,
"with mixed emotions, I am writing to inform the
PSTA Board of Directors that I have been offered the
position of director of transit for Broward County
Garling did not apply for the job in Broward
County, according to Bob Lasher, manager of PTA
Community Relations. The job offer came as the re-
sult of a recommendation from his former boss.
"He (Garling) says that he wasn't looking for a
new job," Lasher said. "He says that his former boss
worked mn Broward and recommended him for the
position. Tim says the call and offer were 'out of the
blue' and that he'll miss the area and our award-
m or t seh o s 1 o have worked with him,
there's no doubt about how much he loves the
Tampas Baytarea arling said that Broward County
Transit is the second largest transit system in the
state and provides about approximately 40 million
rides on an annual basis. In comparison, PSTA's
total ridership is 12.2 nullion annually, according to
"Providing public transit service to the 16th
largest county in the United States offers significant
challenges and opportunities for me professionally,"
Garling began work at PSTA in 2007 after a six-
month nationwide search. He has nearly 30 years in
the transportation industry. His salary is $153,524.
Lasher said the board would appoint an interim
director and begin a new search for Garling's re-
placement. Meanwhile, the PSTA directors will han-
dle his duties.
'Wer have really good experienced directors who
can do the job in the interim," Lasher said.
He said under Garling's leadership, a momentum
had been built for improving transit mn Pinellas and
the Tampa Bay area.
'He's been working really hard and has built up a
coalition to move transit forward in the area," Lash-
er said."T~here's no controversy here. Tim spent his
whole life in New York and Portland. He loves our
beaches. He loves Tampa Bay.
Garling spoke about the progress made in his
res tol iet commend the PSTA Board of Di-
rectors for your leadership in charting a practical vi-
sion fo enot only the trannsitusystm b -t rms tfe
ture of Pinellas County.
'The future success of the transit system, as well
as the public's approval of a long-term sustainable
funding source, will require the development of a
shared vision, community wide partnerships and
persistence. I am confident in Pinellas County's abil-
ity to make the 'vision' a reality.
MAKOWER, from page 1A
Makower said. "Instead of companies buying chemi-
cals and getting rid of unused chemicals, they
(DuPont) handle the safe disposal of any unused
Another important question for companies to ask
themselves, Makower said, is how good is good
enough when it comes to going green.
"People don't expect companies to be perfect but
they expect them to be on the case Makower said.
"It's not what you can claim or put on a label. It's
what you can prove. We call it radical transparen-
He said all companies want a good green story to
tell but most are about doing "less bad."
A good example, Makower said, is Levi-Strauss,
the world's largest cotton producer, which recently
switched to 2 percent organic cotton production.
Surprisingly, he said, corporate officials didn't want
to publicize that fact.
"They didn't want to talk about it because 98 per-
cent of their production is not organic," he said.
"T~hey felt it would illuminate problems to the public
that they (public) didn't know they had."
Overall, Makower said companies are finding
ways to integrate environmental concepts into their
business operations and create value.
He said the question is what innovations and
technology will be invented to bring down the price
of (cleaner) energy? Every level of business must
"What are you doing to making it better," he
asked. "Whhat are you doing that's better for families,
communities and individuals?
"Doing less bad is not doing more good," Makower
added. "It's time to get creative, think bigger and get
this to scale."

Police Department found him trying to hide behind a
parked city vehicle.
According to the police report, the officer was conduct-
ing a property check at the Treasure Island City Hall

CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners
gave final approval on Sept. 21 to the $1.6 billion
fiscalyear 2011 budget.
The total includes $1.2 billion for operating ex-
penses and $400 million in capital spending. The
FY 2011 budget is $61 million less than the current
year and includes an operating budget decrease of
The commissioners also gave final approval to a
countywide millage rate of 4.81, which is the same
as the current year. By keeping the same millage
rate as 2010, county revenue from property taxes
will decrease by more than 10 percent. To generate
the same amount as the current year, the commis-
sioners would need to set the 2011 millage at 5.41.
The county's 2011 budget includes $513.6 mil-
lion for the general fund. Another $129.3 million is
set aside for capital improvement projects. The rest
of the $1.2 billion is split between departments
under the control of the board of county commis-
stoners, internal services, the enterprise funds, air-
port, water, sewer and solid waste; and the
Final millage rates and budgets also were ap-
proved for Emergency Medical Services, Pinellas
Planning Council, municipal service taxing units,
Public Library Cooperative, Pahn Harbor Conununi-
ty Services District, Feather Sound Community
Services District and the fire districts.
No changes were made to the budgets or millage
rates from those approved at the first public hear-
ing on Sept. 7.
The only citizens objecting to the budget were
members of Faith in Action in strength Together,
aka FAST. More than a dozen spoke and requested
that the commissioners restore promised funding
for affordable housing.
FAST members said they understood the eco-
nomic pressures that made it necessary to reduce
funding to the county's housing trust fund. FAST
proposed that instead of the pledged amount of $30
million, the commissioners allocate 3.6 percent of
the budget to affordable housing.
Assistant County Administrator Elithia Stanfield
said $15 million of the $19 million currently in the
housing trust fund is committed. She said that left
$4 million still available.
"Plus the income that comes back in (from repay-
ment of loans)," said Commission Chair Karen seel.
Commissioner Calvin Harris said "thousands of
units had been put on the ground" since the hous-
ing trust fund started.
"We've not backtracking on our promise," he
Harris said the big need now was jobs.
"People are underemployed and unemployed. We
could put in another thousand (units of housing),
but there aren't enough that can afford to buy."
Commissioners Neil Brickfield and Ken Welch
said the FAST proposal to commit a certain per-
centage was interesting. Commissioner John Mor-
roni said he "supported the concept."
"But I really need to see how you come up with
3.6 percent," Welch said.
The commissioners promised to review the mat-
ter at a future meeting.
Bryan Dairy Road project moving ahead
CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners recently approved
a Local Agency Program Agreement with Florida Department of Trans-
portation for the Bryan Dairy Road widening and reconstruction proj-
ect from Starkey Road to 72nd street North.
According to the agreement, construction activities must begin on or
before Nov. 30 and be completed on or before Dec. 31, 2013.
The nearly $22 million project will widen Bryan Dairy Road from
four lanes to a divided six-lane urban arterial roadway. The project in-
cludes improvements to Belcher Road from south of Bryan Dairy to
north of 114th Avenue.
According to staff notes, the county was awarded a total of more
than $8.5 million through the Federal Highway Administration and
FDOT for the project. The funds include $2.8 million in highway plan-
Beaches and Coastal Systems.
According to staff notes, beach nourishment projects that are part of
the Federal Shore Protection program are cost shared with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers. Non-federal projects are cost-shared with
the state only.
Pinellas County shares costs for nourishment of Sand Key, Treasure
Island and Long Key (st. Pete Beach) with the federal government. Cost
to renourish the sand on Honeymoon Island is shared with the state.
FDEP requires Pinellas to submit an annual funding request for
beach management projects that includes a 10-year budget projecting
and a resolution indicating support of the project.
Pinellas County requests for fiscal year 2011-12 include $30,000 for
Sand Key, $115,000 for Treasure Island; $165,000 for Long Key and
$4.3 million for Honeymoon Island.

Largo wants talks over planning area
LARGO City commissioners feel they are in a stalemate with
county government over boundaries of a planning area.
An agreement between the city and county that identifies a Largo
Planning Service Area, established in 2000, will expire on Sept. 30.
City community development officials said they were contacted in
April by county planning officials to inquire whether the city wished
to renew the agreement using service area boundaries proposed by
the county. Negotiations were unsuccessful and several letters were
City officials proposed that the city and county renew the current
agreement for two years using the map that has been in place since
"'The PSA (Planning Service Area) is a valuable tool for planning
purposes and it would be beneficial to keep the agreement in place.
Community Development Director Carol Stricklin wrote in an April
19 letter to county officials.
Brian Smith, director of the Pinellas County Planning depart-
ment, said in a Sept. 7 letter to Stricklin that the city's planning
area includes locations such as the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Inter-
national Airport, which does not conform to what the county has
defined as an acceptable planning area.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said at the commission meeting
Sept. 21 that she would like to see a letter written by the mayor in
"nice way" to county commissioners that the city is not getting any-
where with staff and that city commissioners want to get together
with Pinellas County commissioners and discuss the issue.
"Because all we are asking for the airport is to remain in our
planning district," Crozier said.
Commissioner Robert Murray agreed, saying that a letter from
the mayor letting county commissioners know "where we are in this
stalemate is very important." Other commissioners agreed.
The interlocal agreement stems from the recognition that numer-
ous parcels of unincorporated land subject to the planning jurisdic-
tion of the county are enclaves and could be subject to voluntary
annexation by the city. However, the properties were outside the
planning jurisdiction of the city. The agreement says that proce-

mittee consisting of Lopez; Michael Delk, the city's planning and de-
velopment director; Assistant City Manager Rod Irwin; Kathleen Pe-
ters, vice president for public affairs at the Clearwater Regional
Chamber of Commerce; and Chris Steinocher, chief operating officer
and senior vice president of marketing and business development at
the Tampa Bay Partnership.
"We had a lot of information to go through," Lopez said.
The proposals were ranked according to each firm's experience
and qualifications, the project approach, the quality of the firm's
previous performance, and the proposed costs, and the list was nar-
rowed down to five finalists that were invited to give oral presenta-
tions on Aug. 17 or 24. They were: Analytica of Newberry, Fla.; Bay
Area Economics of Emeryville, Calif.; Fairfield Index, Inc., of Tampa;
SRI International of Arlington, Va.; and TIP Strategies of Austin.
TIP Strategies was the front-runner presented for the City Coun-
cil's perusal at the council's Sept. 20 work session.
A staff memo listed the reasons TIP was chosen. They included "a
solid understanding of the challenges we face in measuring and ex-
panding our economic base," innovative incentives that have been
successful with previous clients and should work with Clearwater, a
"strong focus on the development of realistic and practical bench-
marks" to measure the success of the proposed plan, and TIP's
"widespread experience in both gathering input from stakeholders
... and building public support for economic development plans."
The biggest challenges facing Clearwater, according to TIP, are a
loss of population and a loss of jobs in key industries, the same
problems that plague many cities in TIP's home state of Texas.
"We're very excited to bring this forward ..." Lopez said. "We felt
good that they really understood our position" and could apply the
lessons learned in Texas to Clearwater.
The purpose of the project, according to the staff memo, is to
"provide a framework for increasing the city's tax base with the ulti-
mate goal of sustaining and expanding the economic base in order
to provide for a high quality of life for all residents."
The reaction of the council members was unanimously positive.
"I think this is just as important (as a tourism contract the coun-
cil adopted earlier), if not more so," Councilman George Cretekos
"'This is something I think is overdue, and I'm glad we're doing it,"
Councilman Paul Gibson said, adding that he likes the fact that the
plan covers the entire city, not just the Clearwater Beach tourist
district. "There are 26 square miles in the city and we've been con-
centrating on the one square mile on Clearwater Beach."
Bluffs commission split on fire pension
BELLEAIR BLUFFS Just how generous the city should be with
its former firefighters in paying out pension plan obligations was de-
bated at Monday night's City Commission meeting.
Former Bluffs firefighters are owed a total of $1.5 million, accord-
ing to city actuary Fred Williams. There is currently about $1.3 mil-
lion in the pension trust fund, leaving a $232,000 shortfall that the
city must make up.
Assistant City Attorney John Hubbard had argued at last week's
workshop meeting that the city has an obligation to taxpayers to
close out the pension plan in the least expensive way possible.
"You have a fiduciary responsibility to your citizens to complete
this with as little cost to them as possible," Hubbard said in a follow-
That would involve paying eight firefighters without vested inter-
ests the money they have put into the plan. Hubbard recommended
talks be held with four vested firefighters to see if they are willing to
take lump sum payments, rather than lifetime annuities.
The annuities involve extra expense as the plan would have to be
kept open and administered by the city.
An alternate plan favored by Mayor Chris Arbutine would include
offering a "service distribution" payment of $1,000 per year of service
to each of the firefighters as an incentive to get all to agree to accept
lump sum payments.

Beacon, September 30, 2010
By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL
LARGO The Pinellas County School Board unanimously voted
Sept. 14 to approve the proposed $1.4 billion budget for 2010-11 and
an 8.34 millage rate.
The property tax millage rate is 0.07 percent lower than last year's
rate of 8.34, and it is 9.7 percent lower than the rolled back rate of
9.24. A mill is one dollar of tax per every $1,000 of taxable value, and
the rolled back rate is the millage rate necessary to generate the same
amount of money that was raised the prior fiscal year but using the
new property values after adjusting for new construction. Because of
lower property taxes and the poor economy, there is less revenue
again this year than last year.
Administrative staff had to cut $16.6 million from this year's budg-
et, which comes after several years in a row of similar, severe cuts.
Kevin Smith, assistant superintendent of budget and resource alloca-
tion, presented a report to the school board and the public explaining
the millage rate, budget and budget cuts.
The following cuts were made to meet the required budget cut: $2.6
million cut by staff reduction; $2.3 million saved from health insur-
ance savings; $900,000 from transportation route reductions; $1.2
million by eliminating the school improvement allocation; $2.5 million
from department discretionary budget reduction; $500,000 by de-
creasing additional duty days and overtime; $500,000 from decreas-
ing the literary success program; $1 million from decreasing the
extended learning program; $2 million from contracted services re-

ductions; $100,000 from reducing travel reimbursements; $800,000
by reducing math and science coaches; $200,000 by reducing black-
berry use; $1.2 million in reducing the use of substitute teachers; and
$600,000 through the early retirement incentive program.
Smith reminded the public and the board that it is always a partic-
ular challenge to cut the school district's budget because 85 percent
of the operating budget is just in salaries and benefits. The district
also faces a major loss next year when the ARRA Stabilization Rev-
enue from the federal stimulus plan runs out. This year the district
received $36 million in these funds toward the general operating
budget. Smith and board members also said that the state legislature
is continuing to decrease resources to Pinellas and the other school
districts throughout the state. This year there was a decrease in base
student allocation funds, and a decrease in the required local effort,
leaving the district less money to work with and less money per stu-
smith said that 48 percent of the budget revenue comes from local
sources and 37 percent comes from the state.
"T~hat's been inversely related over the last number of years and it
continues to go in that direction," smith said.
The School Board unanimously voted to approve both the millage
rate and the budget. School Board Member Robin Wikle said she ap-
preciated that the strategic plan aligns with the budget. These were
the final votes on these matters.

LARGO The Pinellas County School Board was given an update on
Sept. 14 regarding the latest class size requirements and how this will
affect schools in the coming weeks. Classrooms, including students
and teachers, will likely have to be shifted around.
In 2002, voters approved a Florida constitutional amendment to
limit the number of students in core classes in public schools. From
2003 to 2006, the student-to-teacher ratio was determined by a dis-
trict average, according to the presentation. From 2006 to 2010, the
ratio was by school-wide average. Starting in the current school year,
this was to change to a class-by-class average.
"Pinellas County schools must meet these caps at the individual
class level or risk having fines for every student enrolled over the caps
that are set by the amendment," said board Chainvoman, Janet Clark.
"A statewide referendum at the general election on Nov. 2, 2010, to de-
termine whether the class-size limits will be on an individual class size
level or if they can be met using the school-wide average."
At the time of the school board meeting, the latest requirements
were that schools would average the following numbers of students per
teacher in core classes: 18 students in prekindergarten through grade
3; 22 students in grades 4 through 8; and 25 students in grades 9
through 12. Core classes are what would be counted. These include
math, science, language arts and writing, social studies, and world
Additionally, the constitutional amendment would set the maximum
number of students assigned to each teacher, setting the following
maximum numbers of students assigned to each teacher, not to ex-
ceed these school-wide averages: 21 students in prekindergarten
through grade 3; 27 students in grades 4 through 8; and 30 students
in grades 9 through 12, according to the Florida Department of Educa-
Jim Madden, deputy superintendent and chief of staff for Pinellas
County Schools, said that in order for elementary schools to comply,
new classes may have to be formed as students arrive at schools, co-
teaching models may have to be implemented, some teachers will have
to change schools in the next few weeks to help with compliance, and
newly enrolled students will have to be assigned at a school with space
availability, which may not be their usual assigned school. As far as
middle and high school compliance, there may have to be multiple
scheduling changes, closing class sections or making them unavail-
able, up the use of virtual school opportunities, and new enrollees may
have to determine class offerings with space or be assigned to a differ-
ent school, Madden said.
As far as the impact on teachers, their class or course enrollments
may need to be changed, they will maximize floating teachers, their
students' schedules may change, they may have to switch schools,
and they may be asked to teach an additional class for supplemental
pay, Madden said.
This will furthermore have possible impacts on transportation needs
in the district and need for additional classroom space. If the district
does not comply, there would be financial penalties per student over
The district has until mid-October to meet the current requirements.
Pinellas SAT scores climb
The combined score of the 2010 Scholastic Aptitude Test results for
Pinellas County Seniors has continued to improve over the past five
years, according to a district press release.
The 2010 Pinellas combined score was 1,023, giving Pinellas stu-
dents a better score than the state and national averages. The 2010
Florida state average was 994, and the national average was 1,017.
The combined score includes both critical reading and math.
Pinellas County's overall score rose four points from its 2009 score
of 1,019, which was up 10 points from its 2008 score of 1,009. Pinellas
County's African-American students also continued to increase their
combined scores this year, going up by two points to 859. It has gone
up each year since 2007.
Students trade books for Kindles
CLEARWATER More than 2,150 Cleanvater High School students
have received their personal Amazon Kindles, the e-readers that have
replaced their textbooks for math, English, and supplemental science.
They also will have the st. Petersburg Times and numerous novels
Each e-reader is tailored to the particular students' course loads.

Clean gulf waters are full of bait fish and predators alike. Strong
east winds may have made it tough to run offshore or even seek refuge
inshore for the past couple of weeks; however, conditions have been
optimal for targeting the variety of
species that are found within a few
hundred yards of shore. Fish Tales
Schools of Spanish mackerel of all ,\
sizes continue to flood into the area. P I '
Along with them is a host of other '
speedy gamesters, including blue-
fish, jack crevalle, and a few rouge
kingfish. Live bait chumming has made it easy to bring the mackerel
right behind the boat. Live pilchards, long shank hooks and a 30
pound leader are about all you need to catch a bunch of mackerel.
Meanwhile, send out a blue runner or small jack crevalle under a bal-
loon rigged up on a stinger rig for a shot at an early season kingfish.
Offshore anglers recently received a nice bonus from the Gulf of
Mexcico Fishery Management Council. In its August meeting the coun-
cil voted to re-open recreational red snapper for a supplemental season
in gulf federal waters during weekends only (Fridays, Saturdays, and
Sunday) from Friday, Oct. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 21. This supple-
mental season was approved by NOAA Fisheries Service. This action
all stems from fishing closures that occurred as a result of the BP deep
water Horizon oil spill.
This season should definitely help to boost bookings aboard many of
the offshore party boats in the area. Extended trips will give anglers
their best opportunity to bring back some American red snapper for

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Finding the Right Doctor To Care For Your Smile
That may sound like an obvious title for an article all about myself. But I seriously
think it is an important question. I know some folks who choose their medical care
by looking for the most appealing ad in the yellow pages. I suggest a little more
research, especially when you are looking for a health-centered or cosmetic dentist.
Here is a quick checklist you could look through when selecting your dentist.
*Be direct. Ask the doctor to discuss experience, training and credentials with you.
Don't be intimidated. This is really important because cosmetic dentistry is not a
board-certified specialty. This means that any dentist can call him or herself a
cosmetic dentist with no more than basic dental school education. There is
something to say for years of experience and training.
*Be certain that the before and after photos belong to
real patients of that particular doctor.
*The best dentistry comes from focused attention on a
Sindiv duala isentequA busy,obustling practi e means that
4 throughout the day. Your family deserves a doctor who
can spend time with you without interruption or rushing.
*Look for a practice that utilizes up to date modern
equipment. Used with skill, technology allows dentists to
be more accurate, more conservative in care, and keeps
your procedure as comfortable as possible.
*Finally, good communication skills are critical for the treatment to be a success.
The doctor srntustctlasten and undtrstndtithe eals canad Aesires of the patient so the
With just a little homework up front, you'll be sure to find a dentist who combines
training, skill, artistry and style for great results and beautiful health.
Here's the bit about myself.
I really do care about my patients. They are my ultimate priority, and I am
passionate about learning everything there is to know so I can give them the best that
dentistry has to offer. This keeps myself and my staff informed on the very latest
advances and techniques. I always listen to your needs and answer all your questions.
I grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland Dental
School in 1981. My wife Kathy, an RN at Morton Plant, and I moved to Florida
shortly afterwards. We have four children. Our oldest son is a pilot in the US Navy,
next is a construction manager in New York City, the third is studying Architecture.
All are University of Florida Gators. Our daughter is a high school student.
I have done extensive training in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry at the
world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. In addition to this
training, I have studied with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and
orthodontics at the United States Dental Institute.
I love what I do, and I love my patients.

Beacon, September 30, 2010
As he parked his car in the supermarket
lot, Smith realized he was an idiot. Why?! Be-
cause this was a Sunday. In the city where
Smith lived, 80 percent of the population went
to the grocery store on Sunday, crowding the
aisles and bumping their carts into each other
like good-natured cattle. Smith had ignored
the commandment, "Remember the Sabbath
day to keep it holy. Stay out of grocery stores.
On Sunday they are the road to hell."
Smith's first challenge was to get past the
ice cream section. This store had more ice
cream than all of Norway. Smith, an ice cream
addict, at one time had walked over the body
of his grandmother to get to a half-gallon of
Breyer's butter pecan. Gritting his teeth,
Smith passed on to the produce section.
Feelings of ignorance gripped him as he
looked at all the strange vegetables. He re-
viewed the basic classes of vegetables: bulb,
inflorescent, leaf, root, stalk, tuber and -
dumb as it sounded fruit. For daily fare,
Smith knew only lettuce, tomatoes, carrots
and green peppers. Beyond that he was lost.
The vegetable bins were labeled with strange
words fennel, chard, kohlrabi, cassava,
mutabaga, okra. It was like a Turkish diction-
Fruits brought more stress. He loved ba-
nanas, but they depressed him. His friend,
Olsen, had told him at Smith's last birthday.
"Hey, Smitty, you're getting up there, aincha?
Better not buy any green bananas." Very
funny. Olsen later got shingles. Served him
Smith avoided buying pears, peaches and
apples from his supermarket because they
were like rocks. They took two weeks at home
to soften. By then Smith had forgotten he even
owned the fruit. When a cloud of flies began to

Keep Florida beautiful
You know, when I think of Florida, I think of pristine beaches and
beautiful landscape. I also think of the rich character of the people,
the ecology minded and the recycling habits. I am a middle-aged
woman, who was bom in Oklahoma City, Okla. Who, due to my hus-
bands expertise in the telecom industry, has given me the great op-
portunity to travel this great country for most of the last decade.
Florida has gotten a great chunk of that time. Florida is one of my fa-
vorite states. Mostly for the beautiful beaches it has to offer.
Before this decade, a great friend of mine and I vacationed here
most every year. At the present time, I have the gift of living in a nice
little house in an intracoastal neighborhood of Indian Rocks Beach.
We get trash pick up service two times a week, but, only get a recy-
cling pick-up of newspapers. I also watched on the news, where a
beach city was thinking about making recycling mandatory for busi-
nesses. Surprisingly, there was controversy. One of the businesses
was complaining of having to spend time sorting trash from recy-
olbes oMy hteouh c s epu oo oadiejcy ling can for the patrons to
Then, I noticed at the beaches, there were plenty of trash recepta-
cles on the beach, but, no recycling receptacles. I think they should
be side by side. I did notice that around the areas, there were recy-
cling bins, but, for the tourist, to which these beaches cater, they
weren't easy to seek out. And, really, who on vacation would seek out
recycling bins. Time is precious to all people, but, when you are on a
limited vacation, there are definitely going to be comers cut. I have
the advantage of not working, and I have found that I even get lazy
(especially when it rains) about dragging my recycling down the
block, just to find that I can only recycle plastic bottles and newspa-
pers. The newspapers I take to my curb.
What about all of the other recyclables? I remember going to San
Francisco and the garbage pick up patrons garbage bill was dis-
counted depending on how much they recycled. They picked up all
recycling, not just a few items.
They take a variety of recyclables, yet are still limited. I think these
items, that are taken to be recycled, are then sold. So why doesn't
Florida make it easier, for the tourists and residents to recycle. There
is always a push to recycle, to go green, but, why isn't it made easier.
Couldn't Florida take the time to make a plan to make recycling easi-
er and more convenient for everyone. Their beaches are the big draw
in tourism and yearly migrations of "Snowbirds", why not take pride
in how the garbage is handled.
We have to pay extra for the items that we buy in recyclable con-
tainers, then we have to throw them in a landfill? What is the sense
of that. Where is the pride? And all of the extra money we spend on
these? Literally in the trash. With all of the overpaid government offi-
cials, couldn't someone research this? It would give Floridians a real
sense of pride and make it easy for them to participate in the better-
ment of their beaches, community, state, the world's ecology and eas-
ily be able to "go green." The tourists would participate, mostly
because they want to continue to visit beautiful beaches, and the
shtt eof nsot pa tlicitpa in and tossing a lonely empty water bottle
I propose, the cities of Florida offer recycle bins to every resident. I
also propose they offer a compost bin and have a compost pick up..
There could be a big compost drum for all of the compostables to be
kept in, and the residents of that community can come and take
what they need with no charge. If there becomes too much, bag it
and sell it to local nurseries or retail stores. There would be very little
'garbage" to pick up and it would truly make a statement that Flori-
da wants to be a leader in the "going green" movement that is rapidly
spreading throughout the world.
The existing sanitation employees could just be redistributed'
which in tum gives them a sense of pride to be a part of this move-
ment and not someone whose job is considered a nasty one. This
would also keep the landfills at a minimum. Let's keep Florida beau-
tiful. It is too amazingly beautiful not to.

bladder and bowel incontinence
This is a condition that should
be treated with conservative
methods to begin with. While pain
and anti-inflammatory medica-
tions may give some symptom re-
lief, the condition will continue to
progress unless active care is ini-
tiated to keep the progression
from increasing. Surgery is al-
most never the first option for this
condition; it is a first option for
only those cases where bowel and
bladder control are being lost or
the pain is uncontrollable. Most
cases can be controlled conserva-
So what is active conservative
treatment? Spinal manipulation
with axial decompression can be
a very effective treatment. The de-
compression portion of the treat-
ment opens up the disc space
and allows more room for the ex-
iting nerve root. The distraction
portion allows the joints of the
neck to move more freely, taking
some of the pressure off the joint
by allowing it to track more nor-
mally. Many people with stenosis
have very restricted movement of
the neck. This can be improved
appreciably with gentle manipula-
tion. In general, these procedures
can decrease pain and other
symptoms to a very acceptable
If you have been told, or sus-
pect that you may have cervical
spinal stenosis, consult with your
family doctor of chiropractic med-
icine, who will very likely have the
answer for you.
Cervical spinal stenosis is usu-
ally an ongoing problem and not
the more usual case of "I sudden-
ly had neck pain after doing
Most cervical spinal stenosis is
caused by degenerative changes
that develop slowly over time. Fre-
quently, an accident or overdoing
something causes the neck to be
examined and the problem found,
but generally it has been slowly
developing and it just took an
event to push it over the edge.
With age, the discs between the
changes are common after age 50
and are generally called cervical
spondylosis or cervical stenosis.
Stenosis may not cause a lot of
symptoms. If it does it is generally
in the form of pain in the neck or
arms, with the arms feeling weak
or stiff and clumsy. Leg symp-
toms can also occur as the spinal
cord is increasingly pinched by
the degenerative changes. The
legs may become weak or you
may have difficulty walking, fre-
quent falls or the need to use a
walker or cane. Urinary urgency

... Can Be Harmful to Your Health
DID YOU KNOW ... that a man with gum disease is 60% more likely to develop
pancreatic cancer than a man with a healthy mouth?
DID YOU KNOW ... that a pregnant woman with gum disease is twice as likely to [b, -
have a preterm low birth weight baby than a woman who doesn't?
DID YOU KNOW ... that 1 American dies every hour from Oral Cancer of
which gum disease plays an important role?
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, these and many other health risks go
along with gum disease and poor oral health. It is estimated that 80% of ALL ADULTS have
some form of gum disease. Most of the time, the average person perceives no symptoms. Gum
disease is rarely painful and is almost impossible for the layman to diagnose without X-Rays and
TOJ HDstrumen .i't just about tooth loss and bad breath anymore. While some physicians adviseatuli .1cktieintab tt the
relationships with diseases like Heart disease, Stroke and Diabetes, it is more common than not for them to skip this process. If
you have a family history of heart problems, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, Alzheimer's, pancreatic cancer or are
pregnant, it is important that you be screened by a dental professional. Damage in the mouth caused by gum disease can never be
reversed, but it can be treated and maintained! A healthy mouth can mean a healthy life!
We focus on making beautiful smiles & building healthier lives. We perform a thorough examination & communicate with
your physician if necessary to help minimize PERIODONTAL DISEASE as a possible health risk for you.

1c.t~ -Y, I
/ 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.
