SEMINOLE The City Council voted unanimously
Sept. 28 for the city to enter into an agreement with
the Florida Energy and Climate Commission to receive
a $290,076 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block
Combined with a $130,324 match from the city's
capital improvement fund, the city will have $420,400
to work with on three projects and a pair of studies re-
lated energy efficiency improvements.
One project will include LED upgrades for indoor
and outdoor lighting at all city-maintained parks and
facilities with a projected cost of $254, 000.
Another project involves the installation of occupan-
cy sensors in City Hall at a cost of $5,400 and another
will upgrade lighting on sports fields for $145,000.
One of the two studies is to analyze a possible solar
photovoltaic retrofit to the Seminole Recreation at a
cost of $3,000.
Another study will be an HVAC audit to identify en-
ergy efficiency needs at the recreation center. The cost
The LED lighting upgrades will include the installa-
tion of 1,548 LED fixtures at three fire stations, City

INDIAN SHORES A lengthy investigation
by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and a
subsequent internal affairs investigation re-
sulted in the resignation of longtime Indian
Shores Police Detective Jason Routzahn last
Routzahn, 34, resigned May 4 on advice of
attorney Ken Afienko prior to an Indian
Shores Police internal affairs hearing the
Following his resignation, Routzahn re-
fused to be interviewed on a variety of allega-
tions citing his Fifth Amendment rights, said
Indian Shores Police Capt. Terry Hughes.
Routzahn, who worked nine years for the
Indian Shores Police Department, is now liv-
ing in Maryland.
The allegations of violation included bat-
tery, sexual battery, serving alcoholic bever-
ages to a person under 21, conducting an
open house party, failure to comply with de-
partment policy, violation of the depart-
ment's policy on computer use, failure to
safeguard information on the Florida Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
computer system, violation of the Indian
Shores Police standard of conduct, noncon-
formity to state and local laws, and associa-
tion with a known criminal.
A 15-month investigation by the Sheriffs
Office that included interviews with 78 wit-
nesses was the basis of an Indian Shores Po-
lice internal investigation that concluded
Aug. 12. It became public record Aug. 24.
According to an Indian Shores Police re-
port, the Sheriffs Office presented the sexual
battery allegation to the Pasco-Pinellas state
Attorney's Office but Assistant state Attor-
ney Lisset Hanewicz said there was insuffi-
clent evidence to prove the charge beyond a
reasonable doubt. According to police, the
case was dropped because it had passed the
two-year statute of limitations.
Although the investigation is now closed
and no charges will be brought against
Routzahn, Hughes said a copy of the Indian
Shores investigation is being forwarded to
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
in an attempt to have Routzahn's law en-
forcement certificate permanently revoked.
"All the allegations are false and not true,"
Routzahn said in an e-mail."T~he reason I re-
signed was that the chief of police (E.D.
Williams) told me in a closed door meeting to
resign or I would be fired. During this same
meeting the chief told me he beleived these
allegations even though the agency had not
yet investigated them.
"The chief of police had his mind made up
way before any investigation was started or
finished. That is the way that agency works,
what the chief says goes whether it's proper
According to the Indian Shores Police re-
port, the alleged sexual battery took place
between June 7, 2004 and June 18, 2004
when Routzahn is believed to have per-
formed oral sex on a 16-year-old boy while
"He just was, like, a freak," the victim told
sheriffs investigators. "He was always com-
ing on to me and trying to, like he was real-
ly obnoxious and like a like a homny freak,
The report said Routzahn often coerced
the boy into his police vehicle and "touched
his legs, abs, chest and groin."
About Feb. 14, almost six years after the
original incident, the victim told sheriffs in-
vestigators he had contact with Routzahn
prior to his interview with detectives.
During the meeting, the report states,
Routzahn told the victim, "Wrhy did you tell
the Sheriffs Office I raped you when you
were a kid?"
The victim responded, "You know what
happened. I know what happened. Now they
need to know what happened. So I let them
Routzahn, the report states, said "I'll see
you when I see you," which was taken as a
threat by the victim. Indian Shores Police Of-
ficer John D. Tindall witnessed the conversa-
The alleged battery victim was also the vic-
tim of the alleged battery on a juvenile, also
in June 2004. According to the ISPD report,
this charge stemmed from an incident of
"unwarranted touching of a sexual nature"
when the victim said Routzahn touched him
in "inappropriate way on his leg."
"It's probably something you would do to
your wife or to someone you love," the victim
told investigators. "I couldn't tell nobody
about it because I was scared."
A friend of Routzahn corroborated the vic-
tim's description of Routzahn, noting that
Routzahn once patted down young males on
the beach who were wearing board shorts
and tight-fitting T-shirts, but left a fourth
young male, who was wearing a long coat,
alone. The friend, who was participating in a
ride-along with Routzahn, said "I would cate-
gorize it as, yeah, inappropriate touching."
According to the ISPD report, Routzahn
also downloaded 120 adult pornographic
photos from a gay men's website to his office
computer in 2008 and downloaded a driver's
license photo of a female acquaintance from
the Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles com-
puter system to use on his personal MyS-
pace page without the woman's permission.
The charge of associating with a known
criminal stems from a visit to an under-21
victim who was incarcerated at the Pinellas
County Jail in February 2009. The ISPD re-
port states the two met earlier at Chaparral
Apartments in Largo when Routzahn
brought over a bottle ofcragermeister.
"One thing led to another," the victim told
detectives, "and we was kissing and hugging

The Most Important Doctor You See This Year

When you have an oral infection, it doesn't just stay in your mouth. Oral
bacteria enter the bloodstream while you eat, floss, brush your teeth and even
while you sleep. That's bad.
Studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal
of Periodontology report that the inflammatory effects from periodontal
disease can cause bacterial byproducts to enter the bloodstream and to-o ...I ii ..
liver to make proteins such as C-reactive protein, one of the primary markers
in all kinds of inflammation.
What does that mean to you? C-reactive protein
can not only increase your risk of the blood clots that
lead to strokes and heart attacks, it is, according to a
new study from Harvard, a factor in pancreatic
cancer. The Harvard study shows that men with gum
disease were 63 percent more likely to develop
LUj 1 pancreatic cancer when compared to those with no
periodontal problems. This is a significant finding
because, according to the American Cancer Society,
pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers that are
actually on the rise.
Oral bacterial infections can also be a problem for pregnant women,
increasing their risk for complications and low birth-weight babies; for people
with diabetes who may find blood sugar control more difficult; and for anyone
who needs joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement patients must be
especially careful about these oral baI I..i;I i . I i a .. .l. can travel through the
bloodstream and settle in an artificial joint.
Periodontal disease is also the leading cause of tooth and bone loss and that
can really affect whole body health as well. If you have a history of
Osteoporosis, this is especially important to take into consideration because of
the strong relationship between periodontal disease that causes bone loss and
The effects of tooth loss are serious enough. Studies show that those who
lose their teeth have higher medical expenses and fewer years of life.
The good news is that you can add up to six years to your life expectancy
just by flossing regularly, so imagine what regular cleaning and gum care
from your dentist can do for you!

CLEARWATER Despite protests from the public,
Pinellas County commissioners unanimously ap-
proved on Sept. 28 rate hikes for potable and re-
claimed water, as well as sewer service.
The rate changes apply to retail and wholesale
customers and were effective Oct. 1.
Potable water increased 3.5 percent and sewer
rates 1.5 percent. For a "typical" retail customer,
based on 6,000 gallons of water used per month,
the rate change will increase their monthly bill by
$1.58 $1.07 for water and 51 cents for sewer.
Utilities bills customers every two months, so a
typical user will see an increase of $3.16 on their
bills for water after oct. 1.
The rate adjustments for retail and wholesale
water are expected to generate an additional $2.73
million in fiscal 2011. Rate increases for retail and
wholesale sewer service is expected to bring in
Changes in reclaimed water rates, expected to
bring in a little more than $1 million, are a little
For residents using "unfunded systems," those
paid for by Utilities, on unmetered service, the avail-
ability charge remains the same at $7; however, the
service fee is going up $5, from $3 to $8, bringing
the total monthly bill to $15.
Residents on unfunded systems using metered
service will see an increase of $6.40. The availability
charge remains the same, $7, but the service charge
is going up from $ 13.40 to $19.80.
Residents using reclaimed water on funded sys-
tems, those paid for by developers, will see an in-
crease in their service charge from $8.89 to $14.
These reclaimed water users are not charged an
Bills for residents on funded systems using me-
tered service will double as the service charge is
going up from $6.40 to $12.80.
A presentation from Burton &r Associates, a rate
consultant, showed projections for rate hikes
through 2015 that they say are necessary to keep
up with costs to provide service. If the projected rate
hikes are approved as presented, by 2014, typical
water users in Pinellas will see an increase of 16
percent in potable water rates. sewer rates will
climb from $32.03 in fiscal 2011 to $37.46 in fiscal
The biggest cause for the increase in water bills is
Tampa Bay Water, which raised the rate it charges
Pinellas County by 5.5 percent.
In addition, water sales declined 13 percent from
fiscal 2006 to fiscal 2009. Projections show another
21 percent decline from fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2014,
partly due to plans by Clearwater, Oldsmar and
Tarpon Springs to create their own water supplies.
On the sewer side, debt service demands, reduc-
tions in service demand and the need to fund an es-
timated $63 million in infrastructure and $23.8
million ultraviolet disinfection system at south
Cross, are responsible for the rate increases.
The new system at south Cross is necessary to
comply with permit and consent orders from the
state Department of Environmental Protection.
Utilities cut its water budget by $4.8 million and
the sewer budget by $1.9 million for fiscal 2011.
Fifty-nine permanent positions were cut.
Several residents speaking at the Sept. 28 meet-
ing objected to the rate increases and questioned
why Pinellas County had to buy its water from
Tampa Bay Water.
Commissioner Ken Welch took the audience on a
trip back in time prior to the year 2000, during the
"water wars" when so much water was pumped
from Pinellas-owned wells in Pasco County that per-
manent damage to the aquifer resulted.
'Wer don't have enough water in Pinellas County,"
The solution was to create Tampa Bay Water,
which supplies water to its member governments in
the cities of New Port Richey, st. Petersburg and
Tampa, as well as Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas
Tampa Bay Water uses a system that takes in
water from several sources to provide a blended
water supply to its customers. However, it costs
millions of dollars to set up and maintain Tampa
Bay Waters' systems expenses the member gov-
ernments must continue to pay.
'Whe knew we would have to pay our share of the
costs," Welch said.
Tampa Bay Water reduced its fiscal 2011 budget
by 9 percent and raised its rates.
Lois Fries objected to the 50 percent increase in

reclaimed water rates. She also objected to schedul-
ing a public hearing three days before the rate in-
creases were scheduled to begin.
"It doesn't seem to me like this is how democracy
is supposed to work," she said. "W~hy penalize us
for using less water."
Fries, and others, also brought up a concern
about the potential for sinkholes as municipalities
turned to pumping water from wells to provide their
own water supplies.
The commissioners explained that reclaimed
water was not bringing in enough to pay for itself,
thus placing some of the burden of its cost on cus-
tomers that did not have access to reclaimed water.
Commission Chair Karen seel told Fries although
the public hearing notice called for the proposed
fees to begin on Oct. 1, the commission could de-
cide not to change the rates or approve other
"It's not set in stone," she said. "Whe can change."
Frank Hopson said Utilities had done its job of
getting people to conserve water "too well. Now less
people are using the water and you must raise fees
to cover the cost. That's an insult to our intelli-
Hopson and other speakers also objected to the
type of fluoride added to the water supply.
In the end, all proposed rate increases were ap-
proved. Seel asked that newly implemented late
charges be reviewed.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, all three species of sea turtles that nest regularly on the
state's beaches had annual nest counts well above average for the
previous 10 years.
This news is especially good for loggerhead sea turtles, which
have experienced declines in nesting in recent years. Loggerheads,
the species that most commonly nests in Florida, had nest counts
that were 30 percent higher than the 10-year average.
"We're encouraged by the high count, especially considering the
oil spill and the extreme cold weather earlier in the year," said Dr.
Blair Witherington, an FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute
scientist. "However, one good year can't reverse a declining trend. It
will take many years of data to determine if this is a new nesting
trend obviously one that we would like to see continue in the fu-
Nest numbers for leatherback and green sea turtles also contin-
ued to increase, with nests in 2010 totaling the second-highest
since standardized counts began in 1989.
Nest counts are performed each year through Florida's Index
Nesting Beach Survey, which was created to measure seasonal sea
turtle nesting, and to allow for accurate comparisons among
beaches and years. The standardized index counts take place on

In one of the largest wildlife counts in the nation, hundreds of
partners diligently survey Florida's Index Nesting Beaches through-
out the summer sea turtle nesting season.
"It's a big job that requires a dedicated group of nest-counting
experts," Witherington said. "It's especially rewarding for those in-
volved when the turtles make a good showing."
FWC's role in coordinating Florida's sea turtle nest counts is
funded by sales of the sea turtle license plate.

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
between LifLestyle's and Beef O' Brady's on the northwest
corner of Park Blvd. and Semninole Blvd. They're open
Tuesday through Friday from 9 AM to 8PM and Saturday

SEMINOLE A panel of four experts explored various avenues of
energy solutions Oct. 2 during the third of three public oil forums at
the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College.
David Cartes, director of the Institute for Energy Systems, Eco-
nomics and Sustainability and associate director of the Center for Ad-
vanced Power Systems at Florida State University, said solutions to
energy issues are very political but must be solved.
If something isn't resolved soon, he said, life as we know it now will
be much different.
"If we continue like we are now, by 2025 we're going to be in the
same spot as India," Cartes said. "W~e'll have rolling (electrical) black-
He said Florida needs to develop as a regional hub and an intema-
tional hub of green technology, innovation and investment. Invest-
ments, he said, in low-carbon sources are imperative to secure a
"How do we create policy?! You create goals," said Cartes. "You fig-
ure out measurable goals and make sure we're moving forward. We
also need to make sure our banks and small businesses are investing
in renewable energy sources."
Those sources would be biomass, solar and wind power, taking our
dependence on coal and oil slowly away.
Cartes suggested the "smart grid" concept, which employs digital
technology on a wide scale to allow budgeted energy consumption,
using peak and off times.
Cartes also tossed out the idea of decouplingg," a concept of giving
utilities incentives to promote energy efficiency.
Part of decoupling could include incentives to use more solar energy
and photovoltaic measures through use of ideas like a "feed-in tariff "
a policy mechanism designed to encourage the adoption of renewable
energy sources and a move toward grid parity.
'Wer also have to figure out a way for utilities to make money when
their customers will be using less electricity," Cartes said. "This is
going to be a very expensive proposition but our grandchildren are de-
pending on us to make the right decision."
Barry Moline, executive director of the Florida Municipal Electric
Association, said renewable energy currently makes up about 1 per-
cent of the energy produced in Florida and the potential in the near
future is about 13 percent.
He pointed to costs as a stumbling block, noting that the current

Power Systems at Florida State University, suggested a smart grid as one Association, said renewable energy currently makes up about 1 percent

average price for a kilowatt of electricity is about 12-cents. With solar it
would be about 22-cents on a large scale, Moline said.
Cartes said a solar program in use in Gainesville costs consumers
about 32-cents per kilowatt/hour, which is too high.
Moline used his own home solar energy system as an example, not-
ing that his energy costs run anywhere from 40-cents to 75-cents per
Moline also suggested the creation in Florida of a public benefits
fund to fund a statewide solar rebate program. He said if consumers
paid 25-cents per month, it would raise between $40 million and $50
million per year. Thus money could be used as an incentive to state
consumers to convert to solar power sources.
Other speakers that participated in the forum were Dale Brill, presi-
dent of the Florida Chamber of Commerce Foundation and former
state director of the Florida Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic De-
velopment; and Dan Lashof, climate center director of the National Re-
sources Defense Council.
State Sen. Dennis Jones (R-Treasure Island), said the information
presented during the three forums would be used to help the Florida
Legislature set a state policy on energy issues.
the private sector to create jobs. That means, and
this is the most important statement I will make,
our state needs to become a "job incubator." We
have to be known as the place to come to start a
business. I have the knowledge and experience to
get this done. My record speaks for itself, I have
created jobs. What most small business owners tell
me is that they want government to stay out of
their way. Florida is one of the most regulated
states in the nation and that means more bureau-
cracy and red tape are tying up job creators and
entrepreneurs. More than 70 percent of all new
jobs in the last 15 years have come from small
businesses. Businesses look for stability before
they open a new store or hire any new employees.
Many of the small business owners I talk to every
day, say they are in a wait-and-see mode. Will the
federal tax cuts expire and how will the federal
health care bill affect their business? No stability,
no economic growth.
LONG: Though we are beginning to see signs our
economy is stabilizing and jobs have been added in
Pinellas County every month since January, we still
have a long way to go. Florida can no longer depend
on growth alone; we can't continue to build our way
to prosperity. We need to refocus our attention on
both retraining and building a strong and diverse
workforce, well poised to compete for the new jobs
of the coming decades. Many jobs will come from
new and alternative energy sources currently being
developed, others from the new technologies emerg-
ing virtually daily. As Florida leads the nation in
forecasting the unique needs of a large, aging popu-
lation, it only makes sense that we focus on the op-
portunities provided by the excellent health care
research facilities here in Tampa Bay. The new
partnership between All Children's Hospital and the
world-class Johns Hopkins University should sure-
ly provide us with many exciting opportunities. At
the same time, Moffitt Cancer Center, the Byrd
Alzheimer's Institute, USF Health, Draper and SRI
are all constantly expanding and providing enor-
mous benefits to our community. HCA Largo Medi-
cal has just become a teaching hospital which will
open up numerous opportunities for physicians
and staff. We need to do more to incentivize and
stimulate job growth in this sector. All of the ele-
ments exist in this region to create a Medical Re-
search Triangle that includes Pinellas,
Hillsborough, Pasco and Manatee counties.
4. What should be done to ensure schools are
AHERN: To ensure schools are properly funded I
will seek to find the waste and fat in the budget.
We need to look at what goods and services the
government provides and determine wants vs.
needs. As I mentioned before, Medicaid is growing
at such a fast rate that its funding is eating more
and more of the budget, cutting into our education
and transportation dollars. And we must find a
way to get more of your tax dollars to the class-
room. Studies show that only 25 cents to every dol-
lar makes it to the classroom. The costs for
education keep increasing in Florida. Yet the prob-
lems drop out rate, less funding for school sup-
plies and textbooks, low salaries for teachers -
remain. As with the other state departments, we
have to make the education department account-
able for each dollar it spends. I would like to see
teachers have more of a voice in solving some of
these problems. Too often, elected officials become
"experts" in fields they really know little about.
Let's talk to those who really do know: teachers
LONG: Strong public schools are the fundamen-
tal building blocks in ensuring our children to-
morrow's workforce will become effective
competitors in the ever-emerging global market. I
personally believe that we will achieve these goals
only when we more closely focus our attention and
the resources necessary for our young childhood
education programs. For several years I have advo-
cated voluntary pre-kindergarten education as a
way to potentially save our system over $300 mil-
lion a year by not having our third graders repeat
the third grade. Dropout rates are invariably re-
duced when students are stimulated and anxious
to learn. Fewer young people enter our juvenile
justice system hence we lessen the cost of our
prison system. More students graduate and be-
Ioesuccesu nien soh ge andesor in tcn ca
have a good solid foundation from the beginning.
5. What additional revenue sources would
you favor to produce a balanced budget?
AHERN: I believe the new sources of revenue
should come from within the state government.
That means looking at ways to reduce the cost of
running the government. Waste and fraud are
common place in many government agencies. We
need a smaller, smarter government. With a budg-
et of $70 billion, we need a business-like approach
to spending. I am not saying it will be easy to do,
but I am saying that my mission will be, to the
best of my ability, to challenge the established
methods of doing business in Tallahassee. To be
accountable for each and every dollar that I have
any say over in my position as your next state rep-
LONG: In this difficult economy we simply can-
not afford to place any additional burden on tax-
payers. Certainly the first steps should be taken in
discovering new efficiencies, reviewing current tax
policies for inequities and to ensure basic fairness,
and investigating revenue shifts resulting from
emerging technologies. By example, for the last
two years I have introduced legislation seeking to
equalize the collection of transient bed taxes, cit-
ing the unfair advantage enjoyed by online travel
booking companies when hotel room nights are
purchased via the Internet. This could provide mil-
lions of additional revenue to our state and coun-
ties without raising any new taxes on the public.
As to efficiency in government services, both the
Florida Department of Agriculture and the Depart-
ment of Financial Services maintain separate con-
sumer services offices. Why not blend them
together? In the area of tax policy, I believe an
honest, comprehensive examination of our sales
tax exemptions just part of a patch-work sales
tax policy cobbled together since 1949, is long
overdue. Also of great concern is the sheer number
and scope of special taxing districts which have
cropped-up over the years, some put in place as
long as 45 years ago. Are they operating efficiently
according to their initial mission, or are they no
longer needed? Is consolidation an option to re-
duce costs and improve efficiencies? In most in-
stances these taxing authorities have their hand in
taxpayers' pockets with little if any oversight act-
ing under the radar as a fourth branch of govern-

legislature will face the tasks of congressional and
legislative reapportionment and, quite possibly, the
related issues of ethics and elections reform. We
also need to continue discussing policies to ensure
access to a clean, potable water supply. Health care
reform will likewise continue to dominate our dis-
2. Why should volersselect or reelect you?
AHERN: The voters should elect me because of
my experience on "main street." I consider myself a
"citizen legislator." Government wasn't designed to
be run by career politicians, especially the people's
House. Many of those currently in elected office
want you to think that only a certain "type" of per-
son can do the job. Our country's founders wanted
people from all walks of life to "represent" their
community. I am that person. I have been a small
business owner for nearly 30 years and know first
hand what it takes to create jobs and balance a
budget. If elected, I would use my business experi-
ence to work toward lowering the unemployment
rate and improving Florida's economy. No amount
of stimulus money will do that. Government does
not create jobs, but what it can do is create the en-
vironment for the private sector to create jobs
through lowering taxes and less regulation. I realize
the dynamics of the state are changing. Tourism
will always be a large part of our economy, but
other industries, such as information technology,
life sciences, manufacturing, aviation and
aerospace, should be encouraged to come to Florida
through a number of incentives, such as tax ex-
emptions and credits. In order to attract new busi-
nesses to our state, we must provide a varied and
viable work force. With one-third of taxpayers' dol-
lars funding public education, failing schools are
unacceptable. School boards and administrators
must be accountable for their positions. A strong
curriculum, discipline and parental environment
must be instilled in all of our public schools. There
is a waiting list in Pinellas County for this type of
education, called fundamental schools. This should
send a loud message to school districts that this is
the type of education many parents want for their
children. Human services, which includes Medi-
caid, consumes 40 percent of the state's budget. We
should always provide for the truly needy in our
state, but we must demand accountability from
these human service agencies. Waste and fraud
must be weeded out and those who benefit from
welfare programs also must be accountable for the
tax dollars they receive. State legislators must be
good stewards of your money so more funding is
available for other parts of the state's budget, in-
cluding transportation and criminal justice.
I served in the United States Air Force before
moving here and have lived in this community for
30 years. I am married to a woman who grew up
here, Maureen Bymne Ahemn. We have three adult
daughters, Lauren, Lindsay and Sarah. I serve on
the Pastoral Council at my church, St. Jude the
Apostle Cathedral, and on the Nuisance Abatement
Board for the City of St. Petersburg. I am on the
Pinellas County Sheriffs Advisory Board and am a
Big Brother to a 10-year-old boy. And lastly, I'm
not a politician. In fact, I've never run for office. I
offer the voters a choice: business as usual or
someone who has common sense and a business
sense for solving our state's problems. Florida has
been good to me. I am willing to do the hard work
that it will take to make sure my children and their
children have the same opportunities I have had
living in this great state.
LONG: For 30 years I have devoted my life's
work to serving the public and learning how good
public policy positively impacts the lives of all
Floridians. As a result, I have acquired a depth of
knowledge on a wide variety of the serious issues
facing our state. For the last four years I have en-
joyed the privilege to serve with honesty and in-
tegrity in our Legislature, putting this knowledge
into practice. My office works extremely hard to be
accessible to all citizens, to provide good con-
stituent services and to treat everyone with re-
spect, dignity, honesty and humility.

The incident started when patrol deputies were dispatched to the in-
tersection of U.S. 19 and 297th Avenue North in Clearwater. When they
arrived, they found the dog near the east side of U.S. 19, just south of
297th Avenue North with a woman, who was attempting to stop the
dog from running out onto U.S. 19.
The woman, Marilyn Boada-Penney, is a Pinellas County Sheriffs Of-
fice Communications Center complaint writer. She was off duty and on
her way home, when she saw the dog. She stopped and tried to contain
the dog until the deputies could arrive.
As the deputies got out of their cars and approached, the dog sud-
denly bit Boada-Penney on her right hand wrist area as she tried to
move the dog toward the deputies, the report said.
The dog then ran out into traffic on U.S. 19 in both north and south
bound lanes. The deputies used their emergency vehicles to stop and
slow traffic at certain points to prevent the dog from being hit, the re-

the Animal Control officer tried to approach, the dog took off running
south on U.S. 19 and into the Doral Village Mobile Home Park where it
ran into a creek with a very steep embanlunent.
The Animal Control officer asked for the deputies' assistance as he
attempted to capture the dog. It growled and barked, and started to-
ward the officer who almost slipped into the creek with the dog. Then
Deputy White shot it.
The dog's remains were taken into custody by the Animal Control of-
ficer, and their office will test the animal for rabies. The victim, Boada-

Environmentalist, nature explorer
addresses Gulf Beaches Rotary
TREASURE ISIAND Kurt Duelsdorf, a local nature tour guide,
spoke at the Sept. 14 meeting of the Gulf Beaches Rotary Club on the
popularity of bird watching across the globe.
In the United States, he said, it has replaced gardening as the fa-
vorite outdoor hobby.
Duelsdorf has participated in cleanup at Elnor Island, which is
owned by the city of Treasure Island.
The island, located in the middle of John's Pass, used to be a bird
rookery. But due to rodent infestation, and thousands of pounds of de-
bris that covered the island, the birds were no longer able to reach
their favorite food, the island fiddler crab. However, elected officials,
kayakers from the area, and boatloads of volunteers in recent years
have made several trips to the island to clean it up.
Duelsdorf has also been instrumental in the cleanup of Clam Bayou
Preserve, and for this he has been named a hero of conservation by
Field and stream magazine.
Gulf Beaches Rotary meets Tuesdays at 11:45 a.m. at the Treasure
Island Yacht and Tennis Club. For more infonnation about the club,
call John Meagher at 407-948-6153, or Harry Black at 480-4544.

Plant, fertilize now for great yards
October means one thing to a home gardener -
time to plant the vegetables.
We've had our
first "cold" front to
tease us about the
winter months GOcades
when the humidi- ( dlR~d
ty goes away. The Ruth Davies
cost of vegetable
sets has in-
creased, so for my January planting, I will plant
seeds in November for broccoli and cauliflower,
thus being economical.
Growing vegetables without sprays are important
to me. Most commercial growers of our food grow so
many plants per square foot that heavy fertilization
is used to produce the crop quickly and with large
quantities, insects would be attracted to a dinner
table where they hardly had to move while they
munched. Then the insecticide truck would cover
the plants with spray to kill them.
Another important date for those of us in Pinellas
County. As of Oct. 1, we can purchase and use fer-
tilizer that contains nitrogen and phosphorus.
Lawns, shrubs and trees have been starved of fertil-
izer since June unless reclaimed water was used
for irrigation. It contains enough nitrogen to keep
grass green, as I see my neighbors' lawns are doing
OK without summer fertilization.
Winter was devastating to banana plants, but
some came back and are late producing fruit. Some
did not fruit but have produced pups, or suckers.
These can be cut off the parent plant and placed
in a pot with high organic soil to root. Bananas are
another edible that tastes sweeter or different when
Like papayas, it's best to harvest them the day
they start to turn yellow. Sometimes the varmints
get them the night before. I found that the screen
room is shady enough for them to ripen slowly but
This year because of the fertilizer ban, I dumped
a few inches of leaves in the area in place of fertiliz-
ing every other month. They look healthy, have
grown well with all the rain, but there is no fruit for
If your shrubs are looking a bit tired, get out the

/ 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.

Targeting spoil islands and barri-

chance at finding all three species. Look for the fish to stage up right
where the deeper part of the flat shallows up sharply creating an
Look for areas of clean water to be holding the most fish,
prospecting these areas with a top-water plug during the first few
hours of daylight will allow you to find where the fish are holding.
Once you've found an active spot, live chumming with white bait

As we enter the fall cool down, changes are beginning to take
place; each passing week brings more bait and predators. Spanish
mackerel, a fall favorite, are schooling heavily in our near-shore wa-
ters. Along with the mackerel are sharks, cobia, bull redfish and
soon enough we'll be talking about kingfish. Local fishing piers put
you right in the action. Redington, Pier 60, the Fort De soto piers
and the Sk~yway piers give land based anglers a chance to catch
some of the great game fish this area is known for.
Easterly winds in between fronts will allow for the water to clean
up along the beaches. Look for the clean water to provide the best
action for the kingfish and Spanish mackerel.

goes~ to a
The most far-reaching and ill-conceived statewide measure on the
ballot this year is Amendment 4
Local government officials, chamber of commerce and other inter-
ests have assailed Amendment 4, saying that it would put a strangle-
hold on development in Florida, would result in the loss of jobs and
would circunwent local governments' powers.
They are right on all accounts. Under the amendment, before a local
government may adopt or amend a comprehensive land use plan, the
plan must go before voters in a referendum.
That in itself is troubling because municipalities frequently change
their comprehensive plans. Consequently, several referendums could
be held annually by city or county governments, costing taxpayers
thousands of dollars. The cost of a city election in Largo is $72,000 an-
nually when it's not tied to a countywide election.
Local government officials are empowered by their constituents to
make land-use and related decisions pertaining to their comprehensive
plans just as they are empowered to make numerous other important
decisions pertaining to their budgets, purchasing, hiring and firing and
the services they provide. It's how they function effectively.
Would most residents be willing to study comprehensive plan
changes proposed in referendums? Many residents don't take or have
the time to become familiar with proposed issues on the ballots or even
who is running for office. Elected officials, acting on the advice of staff
and planning boards, routinely make land-use decisions; it's part of
Opponents also fear that the measure will discourage some develop-
ers from going through with their projects because of the time and
money they may lose in the process. Expensive campaigns for and
against developments may be launched. Lawsuits also may ensue,
such as over ballot language.
With less development proposed, fewer jobs will be created before,
during and after the completion of the projects. Local governments will
be deprived of growth in property tax revenue that comes from new
Amendment 4, which is sponsored by an organization called Home-
town Democracy, stems from discontent with the way that some gov-
emnments rubber stamp development proposals. The concern is valid.
Over decades, local governments in Florida have approved countless
developments that have had adverse effects on transportation systems,
the environment, public safety, schools and other areas of concern.
But growth management issues should be addressed through gov-
emnment oversight of development, including public participation, legis-
lation and policies.
If residents are fed up with the decisions their elected local govem-
ment officials make pertaining to their comprehensive plans or any
other issue, they have the option to vote against them when the offi-
cials are up for election. That's a democratic concept embraced nation-
wide, unlike the framework of Amendment 4, which, in essence, calls
for government by referendum ad nauseam.
Madeira Beach has no plan
In case you haven't heard, many legitimate questions have been raised by
the citizens of Madeira Beach about the proposed budget for 2010-2011i.
Questions about how money is being used for salaries, staffing and proj-
ects, all of which are the right questions to be asking in this time of reduced
But the mayor and two commissioner do not appreciate questions.
At citizen's forum, the mayor has opened by chastising the residents for
questioning the staff. But let's ignore the scolding and pmofanity. Let's look
instead at the substance to see why they ame so afraid to simply answer the
Salaries? The average cost per department per employee is as follows:
parks department, $62,700; finance department, $68,225; city manager de-
partment, $84,000. The sanitation department is $51,440.
Staffing? The city manager says he is proud of the budget because he will
not have to lay anyone off. Indian Rocks Beach has 18 percent more resi-
dents than Madeira Beach, yet each and every department has fewer em-
ITh ss are tough economic times. Just look to the county and the person-
nel cuts required to meet their bottom line. Not Madeira Beach, we are just
going to use 14 percent of our resenres to fimd this budget.
The city budget shows $11,057,580 in expenses and $9,746,275 in rev-
enue, so they are using $1,311,305 or 14 peltent from our resenres, but the
city manager calls this a "balanced budget." Balanced at whose expense?
No wonder they don't want to answer our questions. Balanced at our ex-
Special projects and capital Improvements? Residents ame told "these are
projects the commissioner think up as they go along". A $500,000 loan to
the marina to build a ship's store, but there is no plan to pay back the loan.
A $500,000 allocation for street repaving on Crystal Island was moved out of
the streets, sidewalks and seawall replacements category to the Mayor's fa-
vorite project, the Rex Place Park. This means the $500,000 is no longer
available as dedicated for street resurfacing, but the City says it will be done.
Furthermore, why do resurfacing without first doing the necessary drainage
improvements? Resurface now then dig them up for drainage? Poor plan-
ning and smoke and mirrors.
It is very apparent the city of Madeira Beach has no plan. The mayor and
her supporters have no idea what is going on and we the residents are left
out in the cold, paying for it. The information can all be found on the city
website, which is not user friendly for a season.
Madeira Beach residents, we need to take back our city and take control
of the spending before all our resenres are gone.
Children need recess time
Recently my child started school at Bauder Elementary school in Semi-
We have been happy with his kindergarten experience so far, but I was
stunned to find out that after kindergarten the students no longer receive
any recess time. The children do attend gym class four days a week, but
that is all the physical exercise time they are allotted during the week. Baud-
er is not the only school in Pinellas County to maintain this policy. Many
schools in the area keep a similar schedule.
In a time of growing concern for the physical and mental well-being of our
children, this seems absurl to me. How can a school with such an excellent
reputation be falling so short of nurturing the whole child?
Free play time is such an important issue it has been addressed by Amer-
ican Academy of Pediatrics and the United Nations. The AAP states in the
clinical report The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Develop-
ment and Maintaining Staong Parent-Child Bonds that "play allows children
to use creativity while developing their imaginations, dexterity and physical,
cognitive and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain develop-
They go on to say that free play has been reduced in our culture due to a
variety of factoms including, "a hurried lifestyle, changes in family structure,
and increased attention to academics and enrichment activities at the ex-
pense of recess or free child-centered play."
The United Nations recognizes free play and recreation as a fundamental
hu aril 131 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child it states, parties
recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and
recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child.
As parents, teachers, administrators and community leaders, we need to
lead the charge in protecting this fundamental right for our children.
Just as adults ame given breaks during the day when they are at work,
our children desenre this same rest from the hard work they do in the class-
Many of us grew up in a time when the world was safer and academic
pressure was much less, but even in today's harried world it seems we
need to care out time for protecting the innocence, creativity and fun
that are an inherent part of childhood. Our children also need this time
to develop a love for psychical activities. This will help them be healthier

Nudists have got it wrong. If I understand
them completely, they believe that nakedness
is the most desirable condition for humans to
wander around in. "If God had intended us to
wear clothes, why would He have us bomn in
the nude?" I have a few answers to that ques-
But only one answer (formed as a question)
is necessary to blow the nudists' contentions
to smithereens: "Have you taken a good look
at the adult population lately?"
I take a back seat to no one when it comes
to admiring the human form, when it's less
than, say, eighteen years of age. But around
that age, Mother Nature (and our own habits)
begins to exert her influence.
Parts of the body (I need not go into detail)
begin to sag. Other areas start to wrinkle.
Previously silk-like skin shows signs of blem-
ish and corrosion.
Glistening hair sheds some of its glisten.
I would continue this litany into age 30, 40,
50 and beyond, but you already get the idea.
Except for a tiny percentage (about .0003) of
the populace who spend their days counting
calories and worshipping the Great God Six-
Pack Abs, most of us humans are far from
lovely in our natural state.
That's where clothing comes in. It is a
blessing beyond compare. We can kid our-
selves that the main reason for clothes is pro-
tection from the sun, wind, rain and snow,
but the truth is this: clothes are for hiding
what we really look like. Not just hiding, but
making us look better than we really are.
There's a joke that says that alcohol was
invented so that unattractive people could get
graph or video was shot. Technicians are able
to massage a visual presentation of the ugli-
est man, woman or child and make him/her
look like Elizabeth Taylor at age 16 or Clark
Gable at 40.
At the heart of human coverups are vari-
ous motives. One of them, of course, is vanity
- the desire to appear better than we really
are. Another reason is the sheer inescapabili-
ty of how ghastly life and our bodies can be. If
by using clothing, cosmetics, scalpels or colla-
gens to escape or modify the less-than-lovely
aspects of our daily existence, should any of
us be faulted?
Am I criticizing all this coverup? Never. I
welcome it, even as I acknowledge the immen-
sity of the deceptions we mortals practice. If
they were banished from the earth, I'd shoot
myself. I'd rather die than see the human race
parade around unclothed and unmodified by
the means I've mentioned above.
And yet ... as I've moved through the years
I've been fortunate to know a number of
women uncommonly attractive in their
youth who have defied the onslaught of
aging by simply ignoring it. Despite having
the financial means and the encouragement
of friends to resort to cosmetic surgery, these
women simply let their lines and wrinkles
show. With the years, the lines on their faces
somehow formed delicate and distinguished
life-portraits, imprints of living that enhanced
the women's still-radiant smiles and laughing
eyes. Such women are beautiful. They should

and the quip still holds true.
Clothing is just the beginning, especially for
females. Are you aware that our national debt
could be eliminated in only a few years if we
gave the U.S. Treasury all the money men
and women spend on cosmetics, lotions, sof-
teners, cleansers, dyes, straighteners, bleach-
es, lipsticks and powders?
I won't even mention the sums paid for the
nips, tucks, stretches, tugs, vacuumings and

You're familiar with the Watergate coverup?
Its scope is minuscule compared to what hu-
mans are engaged in each day around the
world, as we unabashedly pursue the art of
insuring that we are NOT viewed in our
naked, untouched state. Statesmen, clerics
rave on about the need to pursue truth in all
its forms. But at the same time we pursue
eighty or ninety forms of falsity in our rai-
ment, our makeup, our haircuts, our
whitened teeth, even the way we smell.
Modem technology has brought added skill
to the art of coverup. Today, few of the models
we see in TV or print advertisements are seen
as they actually appeared when the photo-

LETTERS, from pagel17A
adults, perhaps not struggling with the problems of a sedentary
lifestyle that plague many of us today.
The formative years of learning
Education can be defined as learning. Learning covers a huge ter-
ritory. Learning begins the day one is born and ends the day one
A baby, even the newborn, learns he can get attention and some-
one will attend to his needs, whatever they may be. He cries to be
picked up and held, to be fed, to be changed and even to be rocked
to sleep or lulled into sleep by a softly sung lullaby. As a child grows
from birth through the fourth year, his learning comes mainly from
his parents, close family members and other contacts like play-
mates. These early years are very important for his development.
During these formulate years ground rules can be laid as to what
is right and what is wrong. He can learn what is expected of him
pertaining to lying, cheating, stealing and controlling his anger.
I am a firm believe that a child's development is founded in early
exposure, too. What he sees and hears in his development will defi-
nitely play a part in his future. I found the article below some years
ago titled "Children Learn." The author is unknown. The words ring
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy
If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find
love in te wor .
Being a good parent is not easy in any sense of the word. It is
very, very hard work. Unfortunately, many children do not get a
very good start in life. If parents applied the above principles of
training and created a good environment as above for all children in
these formative years now, I believe a lot of problems of today would
not be the problems of tomorrow. And wouldn't that make a much
better world than we have today? I think so.

According to a popular Internet website, the
odds of being struck and killed by lightning are
The same website says the chance of drowning
in a bathtub is 685,000-to-1 and the odds of
catching a baseball at a Major League Baseball
game are 563-to-1.
It lists a golfer's chance of nailing a hole-in-one
at 5,000-to-1 and the odds of bowling a 300-game
Then I thought, where's my category? What are
the odds of what happened to me the other day?
I was covering a morning presentation of noted
environmental voice Joel Makower during Worknet
Pinellas' fourth annual Taking The Next Step Busi-
ness and Education Summit at the St. Petersburg
It was about a 90-minute dissertation by
Makower who got everybody's attention when he

I hopped into the driver's seat, started my car That didn't happen but what did happen ranks
up there with some of the more bizarre and highly
unlikely things in life.
Believe it or not, as I approached the EpiCenter,
I spotted the white legal-sized notebook laying in
the middle of the street, right on top of the two yel-
low lines separating the two directions of traffic.
No way, I thought. No way, this could be my
notebook with everything Makower had spoken
about laying in the street. But there it was, com-
pletely intact despite a few tire tread marks across
the bent pages.
I simply couldn't believe it. I quickly scooped up
the notebook between passing cars, made sure I
didn't place it on the car roof again and headed
back to the office.
Whew! What are the odds of being so lucky?
According to the website, the chances of spot-
ting a UFO are about 3 million-to-1 and the odds
of becoming an astronaut are 13.2 million-to-1.

ing the following films opening in wide release:
'Life as We Know It'
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas, Alexis Clagett
and Brynn Clagett
Director: Greg Berlanti
In the romantic comedy "Life as We Know It," Holly Berenson
(Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming restaurateur and Eric Messer
(Josh Duhamel) is a promising network sports director.
After a disastrous blind date, the only thing they have in common is
their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, So-
phie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world,
Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling ca-
reer ambitions and competing social calendars, they'll have to find

Why? Legend has it that this man had seven personalities ... and
only one was a killer. The others cried out for help, and in the melee
that followed his last series of attacks, the police shot the killer. All
seven personalities supposedly died on the spot. But now, the Ripper
personality wants his revenge. It was just a ghost story to amuse the
town's kids ... until, on the sixteenth birthday of the Riverton Seven
an unknown assailant begins to murder them, one by one.
Has the psychopath been reincarnated as one of the Riverton Seven,

TREASURE ISLAND The
members of the Art Guild of Trea-
sure Island recently opened their
current show at the Treasure Is-
land Community Center, featur-
ing a number of area artists.
The ink-jet digital photographs
of George Greenfield demand at-
tention because of their brilliant
colors and creative compositions.
He offers "Undersea Fantasy,"
"Jungle Fantasy" and "Untitled."
Perhaps his most intriguing
entry is "Orchid Fantasy," filled
with cerise petals and streamers
against a background of rich
blues and greens.
Claire Paultre brings her clear.
fresh watercolors in two serene
landscapes, "Sunflower Field,"
and "Causeway." In contrast.
Claire uses warm, rich hues in
"Still Life with Oleander" and.
even more dramatically, for the
appetizing "Choux Rouge."
Here, in a strong composition.
she captures a freshly picked
bunch of green celery and deep
red vegetables, grouped around a
Curtis Sneary offers his Im-
pressionistic acrylic paintings of
St. Petersburg's downtown
streets. He has two views of Cen-
tral Avenue where lovely trees
shade classic terra cotta-hued
buildings. Sneary takes the view-
er to the park for an old "Beach
Drive Hotel" and "Summer Bike
Ride on Beach Drive" where he
captures the sun-dappled grass
of the waterfront park.
Eon Reid, working in oil, intro-
duces the viewers to his bold, di-
rect style in "Peace" his strong
portrait of Christ, as well as two
large landscapes, "Florida" and
"John's Pass." Lastly, Reid gives
us an old farmhouse, an Ameri-
can flag and a puzzle in "Mending
Fences" in which two young chil-
dren and the family cow stare at
the broken fence while parents
stand at the window.
Rosemary Utzinger shares
memories of her European tray-
els, well executed in oil. She cap-
tures a costumed Russian girl in
"Oksana in the Garden," the
warm red tiles in "Spanish
Rooftops" and sunflowers in "Au-
tumn's Reward." Rosemary's
beautiful composition, "Morning
Encounter," takes us to a French
street scene with a man and
woman silhouetted against the
dark doorway of a sun-drenched

What's a 16-year-old boy doing playing music and
table tennis with adult psychiatric patients on a
school day?! It's kind of a funny story...
"It's Kind of a Funny Story," adapted from Ned
Vizzini's 2006 novel of the same name, is the new
comedy-drama from acclaimed writer/directors
Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
It's 5 a.m. on a Sunday in Brooklyn. Craig Gilner
(Keir Gilchrist) is bicycling up to the entrance of a
mental health clinic; this bright 16-year-old is
stressed out from the demands of being a teenager.
Before his parents (Lauren Graham and Jim Gaffi-
gan) and younger sister are even awake, Craig
checks himself into Argenon Hospital and is admit-
ted by a psychiatrist. But the youth ward is tem-
porarily closed so he finds himself stuck in the
One of the patients, Bobby (Zach Galifianakis),
soon becomes both Craig's mentor and prote~ge.
Craig is also quicidy drawn to another 16-year-old
displaced to the adult ward, the sensitive Noelle
(Emma Roberts), who just might make him forget
his longtime unrequited crush Nia (Zo& Kravitz).
With a minimum five days' stay imposed on him by
the adult ward's staff psychiatrist Dr. Eden Minerva
(Viola Davis), Craig is sustained by friendships on
both the inside and the outside as he learns more
about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.
'I Spit on Your Grave'

Eastman, Andrew Howard and Sarah Butler

Anchor Bay Films is releasing this unrated re-
make based on Meir Zarchi's controversial 1978
cult horror film "Day of the Woman."
A beautiful woman from the city, Jennifer Hills,
rents an isolated cabin in the country to write her
latest novel. Soon, a group of local lowlifes subject
Jennifer to a nightmare of degradation, rape and vi-
olence. Left for dead, she returns for vengeance.
Trapping her male attackers one-by-one, she inflicts
acts of physical tonnent upon them with a ferocity
that surpasses her own ordeal.

From Academy Award nominated filmmaker
Charles Ferguson comes "Inside Job," the first film
to expose the shocking truth behind the economic
crisis of 2008.
The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over
$20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing
their homes and jobs. Through extensive research
and interviews with major financial insiders, politi-
cians and joumalists, "Inside Job" traces the rise of
a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relation-
ships which have corrupted politics, regulation and

Genre: Thriller and crime
Cast: Robert De Niro, Edward Norton and Milla
Director: John Curran
A seasoned corrections official and a volatile in-
mate find their lives dangerously intertwined in
"Stone," a thought-provoking drama directed by
John Curran and written by Angus MacLachlan.
Stone features powerful performances by Acade-
my Award winner Robert De Niro and Oscar nomi-
nee Edward Norton, and a startlingly raw, breakout
perfonnance from Milla Jovovich as the sexy, casu-
ally amoral woman they both desire.
As parole officer Jack Mabry (De Niro) counts the
days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to re-
view the case of Gerald "Stone" Creeson (Norton), in
prison for covering up the murder of his grandpar-
ents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone
needs to convince Jack he has refonned, but his at-
tempts to influence the older man's decision have
profound and unexpected consequences for them
"Stone" skillfully weaves together the parallel
journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses,
as the line between lawman and lawbreaker be-
comes precariously thin. Golden Globe winner
Frances Conroy completes the superb ensemble as
Madylyn, Jack's devout, long-suffering spouse.
Set against the quiet desperation of economically
ravaged suburban Detroit and the stifling brutality
of a maximum security prison, this tale of passion,
betrayal and corruption examines the fractured lives
of two volatile men breaking from their troubled
pasts to face uncertain futures.
Genre: Foreign, drama and adaptation

Dominic Cooper and Tamsin Greig
Director: Stephen Frears
Based on Posy Simmonds' beloved graphic novel
of the same name (which was itself inspired by
Thomas Hardy's classic "Far From the Madding
Crowd") this wittily modern take on the romantic
English pastoral is a far cry from Hardy's Wessex.

How Bug accomplishes this makes for a coming-

Everyone needed a hero.
They got two. One is a massive, chestnut-colored
horse, known to his friends and family as Big Red.
Everyone else will call him Secretariat. The other, a
self-described Denver housewife, is less recognized,
but she is as gallant and charismatic as her steed.
Her name is Penny Chenery Tweedy, and her faith
in this horse will galvanize the nation, revolutionize
horse racing and, ultimately, change her life's
Based on the remarkable true story, "Secretariat"

Chenery Tweedy (Diane Lane) agrees to take over
her ailing father's Virginia-based Meadow Stables,
despite her lack of horse-racing experience. Against
all odds, with the help of veteran trainer Lucien
Laurin (John Malkiovich), she manages to navigate
the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering
the first Triple Crown winner mn 25 years and what
may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
