Daylight saving time ends Sunday,

Change Your Battery program, created
by Energizer and the International Asso-

The program reminds people to check
and change the batteries in their smoke
alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
during the fall time change. This mes-
sage is simple, and the habit can be life-
saving. Forty percent of fatal fire injuries
occur in homes without working smoke
alarms, while 23 percent occur in homes
in which at least one smoke alarm is
present but fails to operate.
Remember to fall back one hour at 2

SEMINOLE City councilors approved a resolution
Oct. 26 supporting the consolidation of the Pinellas
Planning Council and the Metropolitan Planning Agen-
cy.
The proposal is to merge the PPC and the MPO, and
to expand the MPO membership to include all 25 mu-
nicipalities in Pinellas County.
A joint committee of the Pinellas County Commis-
sion, MPO and PPC are seeking a resolution from all

local governments in the county to present to Pinellas
Legislative Delegation Nov. 22 for potential action dur-
ing the 2011 legislative session.
County officials, led by commission chair Karen Seel,
have been working on the concept since last spring in
an effort to combine transportation and land use plan-
ning within one agency. The two agencies would remain
independent bodies with a single board.
The MPO is focused on transportation issues and the
PPC on land use.
The merger would make future transportation plans


more easily attained.
In other action, councilors:
Passed a resolution supporting First Lady Michelle
Obama's Lets Move campaign, which is designed to in-
crease awareness about childhood obesity. The pro-
gram focuses on eating healthy and exercise.
Voted 6-1 to move the second City Council meeting
in December from the fourth Tuesday to Dec. 21. The
first meeting of the month will take place Dec. 14.
Councilor Leslie Waters voted against the change be-
cause she has a conflict on Dec. 21.

LARGO Funding for a light rail system and
an expanded rapid bus network in Pinellas
County could come from a 1-cent increase in
the local sales tax.
Indian Rocks Beach Mayor R.B. Johnson, a
member of the Pinellas County Transportation
Task Force, told a gathering of the Tampa Bay
Beaches Chamber of Commerce Oct. 28 that
the current transportation tax paid by property
owners won't be sustainable long-term for the
operation of a successful bus-rail system.
Instead, he said, an increase in the sales tax
combined with the elimination of the property
tax might be the solution.
Once constructed, the bulk of the cost to op-
erate an expanded transportation system
would be the operation of Pinellas Suncoast
Transportation Authority buses that would
take riders from the high-speed rail terminal in
Tampa to various points throughout Pinellas
and the beaches. Buses would also be used
heavily to support a light rail system tying to-
gether Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.


'The high-speed rail is scheduled for comple-
tion in 2015," said Johnson, a member of the
PSTA board of directors. "Some 50 million peo-
ple per year visit Orlando and they'll be just a
short train ride away to Tampa."
Bob Lasher, a spokesman for PSTA, said
plans are already under way for buses to greet
each arriving train in Tampa and take com-
muters to various points in Pinellas.
That's the first step of many that leaders
hope will ultimately provide commuters with
more efficient transportation options in the
Tampa Bay area.
Once the high-speed rail is operational,
Pinellas officials, in conjunction with the
Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority
and Metropolitan Planning Organization, hope
to embark on a local light rail-bus system.
In the next year, the Transportation Task
Force will gain public input and identify costs,
benefits and the impact of various transit op-
tions. The results, which are expected to be
complete by December 2011, will be used to

Famous shipwreck artifacts on display in Largo


By WAYNE AYERS

LARGO Prized artifacts recovered from the
shipwreck Atocha are on display at the Silver
Queen/Belleair Coins on West Bay Drive.
Two silver bars weighing about 70 pounds each
are the most recent acquisitions, said Belleair
Coins president Art Arbutine. The bars were used
to mint Spanish coins, both in the New World and
Spain.
The Atocha's discovery in the mid-1980s by
famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher was a cause
cilbre that spawned several books, a movie and
tons of publicity. The legend was further enhanced
when the U.S. government sued Fisher for title to
the wreck. Following eight years of litigation, Fish-
er won the case in a Supreme Court decision.
Arbutine said the bars he obtained, which are
pure silver, came from someone who "was proba-
bly an investor in the venture with Mel Fisher."
They are accompanied by certificates of authentic-
ity that include a photograph of the unique mark-
ings on each bar.
When the price of silver goes up, collectors
bring in items like the silver bars for sale, Arbu-
tine said.
'The people that had these, had them for a long
time," he said.


The Atocha's remains lie near the Dry Tortugas,
about 35 miles from Key West. The silver was
mined in Peru and was on its way to Spain in
1622 when the Atocha was caught in a hurricane,
Arbutine said. Spanish treasure ships would sail
to Havana, Cuba, then go halfway to Florida be-
fore making a right turn for Spain.
The silver bars would eventually be melted down
for coinage, Arbutine said. Belleair Coins also has
coins from the Atocha and other famous ship-
wrecks, including the plate fleet that went down
off of Vero Beach in 1715.
Arbutine said the coins are called cobs, from
cabo de bara, meaning "cut from a bar." They were
denominated eight reals, known as "pieces of
eight" which was the peso, four reals, and two
reals. On the Atocha, the coins would have been in
leather pouches, each containing about 800 coins.
On the ocean floor, the leather eventually deteri-
orated but the coins remained in a clump that
kept some of the coins in very good condition.
Gold, candlesticks and emeralds were also aboard.
Fisher and his team searched for more than 16
years before finally locating the Atocha's wreckage
on July 20, 1985.
The Fisher bars, coins and other shipwreck arti-
facts are for sale, Arbutine said. Some of the coins
have been made into jewelry pieces.

County amends watering rules; digital signs under scrutiny


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Public hearings dominated
much of business during the Oct. 26 meeting of
the board of Pinellas County Commissioners.
The Commissioners unanimously approved a re-
quest from Utilities to amend the rules relating to
year-round water conservation measures.
However, the first of two public hearings for
code amendments regulating electronic change-
able messages for off-premises signs resulted in a
request to extend a moratorium.

New watering rules
The amendment to the county's code on water
restrictions aligns local watering rules with those
put in place by the Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District Governing Board.
All county residents, regardless of water source,
now may water twice a week. Previously, residents
using the county's drinking water were limited to
once a week, while residents using lakes, wells or
ponds could water twice a week.

'This will be a significant change for residents
who have been limited to watering once a week
since December 2001," Utilities said in a press re-
lease.
Due to the change in frequency, some residents
now may have different watering days. Utilities
staff gave an example of a resident with an ad-
dress ending in 0 or 1 who, according to the old
rules, could water on Monday. Now the resident
with a house number ending in 0 an even num-
ber can water on Thursday and/or Sunday. The
resident living at an address ending in 1 an odd
number can water on Wednesday and/or Satur-
day.
Residents with properties of two acres or greater
can water half on Thursday and/or Sunday and
half on Wednesday and/or Saturday.
The hours when watering is allowed also has
changed. Residents may now water between the
hours of 4 p.m. and 10 a.m.
The old rules restricted the hours for residents
using drinking water to between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Residents who receive water from a supply other
than Pinellas County Utilities should check with

Amendments to digital
sign rules still pending
Pinellas County Planning Director Brian Smith
updated the commissioners on actions taken con-
cerning proposed amendments to regulations for
electronic changeable messages on off-premises
signs.
Representatives from Clear Channel Outdoor
Inc. and CBS Outdoor Inc. requested a continu-
ance on amendments to the sign code during an
Oct. 14 public hearing by the Local Planning
Agency. They requested that the agency's hearing
be rescheduled to Dec. 9 to give them time to meet
with county staff on the proposed amendments.
Staff recommends several amendments and

Clear Channel and CBS also requested that the
county commissioners continue public hearings
scheduled on Oct. 26 and Nov. 16 to Dec. 14 and
Jan. 11.
Smith said to comply with the request, the
board would need to extend the Nov. 17 deadline
of the moratorium on accepting permit applica-
tions for digital off-premises signs by two months,
or until Jan. 17.
The board adopted the one-year moratorium on
the acceptance of applications for signs in unin-
corporated Pinellas on Dec. 15, 2009.
A public hearing on extending the moratorium
is scheduled on Nov. 16.

The Customers Have Spoken:

You'll Get a Great Style at a Great Price at Attractions
The Popular Seminole Salon Puts the Focus on Professional Hair Styling


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 Seminole. "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. Attraciions just does great hair."

Joanne Reeves, owner of Attractions. explains it best. "We have
found llat mios of our clients primarily come in for hair services and
already have a favorite nail or skin technician that they are happy
with," she said. "For that reason, we've eliminated other services
and put the focus on what we do best, and that's professional hair
cut, color and styling at prices that are extremely compelilive. For
example, our Redken color, cut & style is just $65 everyday, and
Men's shampoo and cuts are only $15. We also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."

Ai Attractions. they provide a non-competitive setting. "You'll find
no independent contractors here," Joanne added. "Anraclions 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 Redken-trained, but they're employees of
our company-so our clients never feel pressured when 1hey come
here. They can always choose the stylist they \\anm. at a time that's
convenient for them. We want them to feel comfortable."

Pinellas officials establish


volunteer green program


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas County is offering in-
centives to people who voluntarily follow approved
green-building practices.
The county plans to promote and support green
certified buildings that contribute to a sustainable
and natural environment, according to a staff re-
port.
County commissioners adopted a resolution re-
cently establishing the new voluntary green build-
ing program, which is a collaborative effort
between county Extension and Building & Devel-
opment Review Services.
The program defines a voluntary certification-
based program and provides incentives for build-
ing green. Incentives include expedited reviews for
green building projects and recognition on county
mapping systems.
Commission Chair Karen Seel asked how peo-
ple would get the incentives since certification is
not done until after a building is constructed.
"Leap of faith," said Assistant County Adminis-
trator Mark Woodard.
People applying for a building permit as part of
the program must include an appropriate check-
list from one of the recognized green-building or-
ganizations. Green building standards will include
those developed by the Florida Green Building
Coalition, the U.S. Green Building Council and
the National Association of Home Builders. People
taking part in the county's program will be certi-
fied by a third party representative.
According to the resolution, applicants that fail
to keep commitments made when submitting
their permit application for the program may be
deemed ineligible for any future expedited re-
views.
Extension's part in the program will include
posting resources and information about green
building certifying entities on its website. Exten-
sion also will develop appropriate and necessary
application procedures and supporting program


TRANSPORTATION, from page 1A

determine routing and the type of
service.
"That will be the start of a
long-term federal planning pro-
cess," Johnson said.
The Federal Transit Adminis-
tration provides up to 50 per-
cent of the costs for new, fixed
systems but the awarding of
the grants is based on overall
merits of the project.
In other words, Johnson
said, if the area can't show a fi-
nancial commitment to sustain
such a system, it's unlikely the
FTA will award a grant.
That's why adding an addi-
tional 1 cent to the sales tax is
important, said State Rep. Jim
Frishe, R-St. Petersburg. It
would also be a more fair tax,
he said, shared by everyone
who purchases durable goods
and services in Pinellas.
If successful, the new system
could be operational in six to
12 years.
"We need to move people
much faster than we do today,"
said Johnson. "So we're looking
for something that's better and
more efficient than what any-
one else has."
The benefits are expected to
outweigh the costs. Johnson
said mass transit creates jobs
and helps tourism.
"The primary benefits of
(upgraded) transportation is
to redevelopment and the
economy," Johnson said. "If
we don't see that, we're going
to see a general decline (in the
quality of life in Pinellas
County). So we're trying to ed-


materials, implement a county database that
monitors and tracks the green features and rat-
ings of homes and buildings developed county-
wide. A system will be developed to monitor the
impact of green building within the county.
The program will include several sub-programs,
including ones for new residential and subdivision
construction; residential retrofitting and remodel-
ing; new commercial and nonresidential construc-
tion; and commercial and nonresidential
retrofitting and remodeling.
Woodard said the program was designed to pro-
vide incentives to build green without increasing
the workload of county staff.
'The only way we know to do that is to have the
buildings certified," he said.
Staff will review the program each year to deter-
mine any need for changes to increase its effec-
tiveness.
Commissioner Neil Brickfield expressed concern
that the organizations providing green-building
certifications were expensive and thus not avail-
able to most people.
"Who are these organizations and how did they
empower themselves and decide what is and what
is not green building," he said.
Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she would
like to find a way to extend the program beyond
what would be available using only certifying or-
ganizations.
"In later years, I'd like to see us become more
flexible," she said.
Pinellas County achieved silver level certifica-
tion as a Green Local Government from the Flori-
da Green Building Coalition. It has adopted the
theme of "planning today for a sustainable tomor-
row."
County Administrator Bob LaSala issued a di-
rective that establishes guidelines for conserving
energy and water in county buildings. The pur-
pose of the new green building program is to ex-
tend county government's practices to its
residents.

TABOR, growth are top



2011 legislative issues


By BOB McCLURE

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH A lobbyist for the Flori-
da League of Cities told members of the Barrier Is-
lands Governmental Council Oct. 27 that taxpayers'
bill of rights and growth management will be among
the primary topics of discussion in the 2011 Florida
Legislature.
Kenneth Pratt said the issue of taxpayers' rights,
or TABOR, would come up again in 2011 after fail-
ing in 2010.
Under the 2010 TABOR proposal, cities would
have been allowed revenue and expenditure increas-
es based on a multiplier tied to the Consumer Price
Index and increases in population.
The League strongly opposes the concept.
"Our No. 1 priority is to work on that and get a
good resolution (if the measure passes)," said Pratt.
"It's a big thing the League is pushing."
Should any type of revenue cap pass, the League
wants it to prohibit unfunded mandates to local
governments or an exemption on unfunded man-
dates from the cap.
The League also favors any cap proposal applying
equally to all levels of government in Florida, includ-
ing the state.
Pratt said growth management would also come
into play following a recent court ruling declaring a
2009 law unconstitutional. The 2009 growth man-
agement legislation would have relaxed building
rules to help economic development.
A circuit court judge in Tallahassee ruled the law
an unfunded mandate, which made it unconstitu-
tional. The Florida constitution prohibits laws that
force local governments to spend more than 10
cents per state resident. The 2009 law would have
done that.
Pratt said the budget will be a big issue again
with lawmakers looking at as much as a $6 billion
deficit.
""We know there is going to be a deficit," said
Pratt. 'The question is where is that money going to




Seafood celebration


come from. How do we pay for the things we need?"
Other key issues, Pratt said, will be state pension
reforms, additional measures to slow down pill mills
and some form of jobs bill to stimulate growth in
employment.
On another front, State Sen. Dennis Jones, R-
Treasure Island, and State Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St.
Petersburg, plan to co-file a bill that will regulate the
parasailing industry.
'We're seeking input from everyone to make sure
it serves the public purpose," said Jones.
Meanwhile, Dr. Claude Dharamraj, director of the
Pinellas County Health Department, gave a report
on the state of health in Pinellas County and the
emphasis on fighting obesity.
Dharamraj said the county was recently awarded
a $4.85 million grant over two years through a Cen-
ters for Disease Control initiative called Communi-
ties Putting Prevention to Work.
She said Pinellas will use a good chunk of the
funds to change local policies and "make sure peo-
ple know what to eat."
'We're trying to address policy," said Floyd Egner,
city consultant and policy analyst for the health de-
partment. "One in five people were considered obese
20 years ago. Now it's one in three. We're not talking
people a little overweight. We're talking people that
are faced with chronic diseases due to their weight."
He said the local program will focus on workplace
wellness issues, better infrastructure like public
trails and sidewalks, and planning and zoning.
Dharamraj said a recent University of Wisconsin
study on residents of Florida found Pinellas ranked
40th out of the state's 67 counties in social and eco-
nomic topics.
The same survey also found 26 percent of Pinellas
residents are obese, 21 percent use tobacco, only 55
percent are high school graduates, 17 percent of the
children are living in poverty and 19 percent of
adults are uninsured.
On the plus side, the county ranked 13th in ac-
cess to clinical care.

Pinellas Suncoast names new chief


By HARLAN WEIKLE

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH The Pinellas Suncoast
Fire and Rescue District board has named veteran
firefighter Robert Polk as the department's new
chief, replacing Russell Livemois, who retired earlier
this month.
Polk has local roots, having begun his career in
1972 as a firefighter/paramedic in St. Petersburg.
He rose to division chief there before leaving in 1996
to accept an assignment as fire chief in Moline, Illi-
nois.
Polk said he is looking forward to his new ap-
pointment, saying, "My first priority is to evaluate
and prioritize."
Polk said he recognizes the unique makeup of the
department, that is a mix of paid and volunteer fire-
men.
'This is how they give back to their community,"
Polk said. "I want to evaluate the role each volunteer
plays in the organization to make sure it's the most
effective."
Regarding the upcoming Nov. 2 referendum ask-
ing fire district voters to approve a new funding plan
for the department based on the cost of living index,
Polk said he understands the economic pressures
on the community.
'There is only so much money, but ultimately a
decline in our revenue stream affects our ability to
deliver services," he said.
Polk said he believes the volunteers (approximate-
ly one-third of the department) can be a challenge
considering training and certification.
"It is also an advantage," Polk added. "When it's
critical, volunteers can release paid staff."
In 2000 Polk was appointed State Fire Marshal by
the governor of South Carolina, serving in that ca-
pacity until 2003. During his tenure in South Car-
olina, Polk implemented changes at the state fire
academy to enhance firefighter training and contin-
uing education, restructuring code enforcement and
inspection protocols.
Polk founded the private firm RKP & Associates in
2003. His firm provided consulting services to pro-


Robert Polk
fessional organizations, trade associations, private
corporations, and local, state, and federal agencies.
Polk was appointed Interim Fire Chief for the Lugoff,
S.C. Fire Protection District in April 2007, a post he
maintained until 2009.
The new chief is an active member of the National
Fire Protection Association, the National Association
of State Fire Marshals, International Fire Marshals
Association, International Association of Fire Chiefs,
and International Code Council.
Polk and his wife, Katheryn, have three children: a
married daughter, Amanda; Alexas, a student at
USC Columbia; and a son, Evan, a senior in high
school. The Polks have one grandson.

Police beat


Man arrested after
attacking motorists
INDIAN ROCKS BEACH An
Indian Rocks Beach man was ar-
rested Oct. 27 for allegedly at-
tacking motorists on Gulf
Boulevard near 20th Avenue.
According to a report from the
Pinellas County Sheriffs Office,
Bradford H.
Bartolo, 45,
of 2400 First
St. N., Apt. 4,
was arrested
for two
counts of




orderly intoxication.
Deputies saw Bartolo, standing
in the roadway and punching
into the air at vehicles passing
by. They ordered Bartolo to get
out of the roadway, but he re-
fused. Deputies had to tackle
Bartolo and take him into cus-
tody.
After interviewing witnesses,
deputies learned that Matthew
Moody, 17, of Largo had been
driving southbound on Gulf
Boulevard North near 20th Av-
enue in his 1970 Volkswagen
convertible when he saw Bartolo
standing in the roadway. When
Moody could not get around Bar-
tolo he stopped, then Bartolo
jumped onto the hood of the vehi-
cle.
Bartolo then began jumping up
and down damaging the hood of
the vehicle, the report said. He
kicked out the driver's side pock-
et window. Then Bartolo allegedly
began swinging at Moody in an
attempt to strike him while he
was still sitting in his vehicle.
Moody was able to avoid being
struck, and Bartolo jumped off
the car. Moody's vehicle had
more than $1,000 in damages.
Bartolo also jumped on the
hood of a 2005 Ford Convertible
driven by William Duncan, 68, of
Redington Beach. After damaging
the hood of this vehicle, deputies
said Bartolo began violently strik-
ing William's wife, Phyllis Dun-
can, 68, in the head. Phyllis was
treated by paramedics and re-
leased at the scene. Duncan's ve-
hicle also sustained more than
$1,000 in damages.
Once in custody, Bartolo stated
to deputies "take me to jail, I
don't need to be out in the pub-
lic," the report said.
Deputies said that Bartolo had
no motive to attack Moody or
Duncan; however, he appeared to
be intoxicated.
The investigation continues.

Trio charged
in armed burglary
LARGO Police arrested three
suspects in connection with an
armed burglary Oct. 27 at a resi-
dence on Oaklawn Avenue in
Largo.
Officers were called to respond
to a report of shots being fired at
the residence.
Upon arrival, officers learned
that no shots had been fired. The
residents at the Oaklawn Avenue
address reported that three
armed subjects had entered their
residence and demanded money.
There were four adults, three
females and one male, in the resi-
dence at the time that the three
armed subjects entered.
The armed subjects battered
two of the four residents. These
two victims went to Largo Medical
Center to be treated for their non-
life-threatening injuries.
The suspects fled the residence
prior to the arrival of Largo police
officers.
Detectives responded to the
residence and immediately began


to follow up on the incident.
At 2:36 p.m., the three sus-
pects had been identified and lo-
cated at an address on Lake
Palms Drive, in Largo.
All three suspects were arrest-
ed and charged with their part in
the armed burglary.

session of marijuana, possession
of a short-barrelled shotgun,
armed robbery, aggravated as-
sault and aggravated battery. He

A complainant told police that
he saw a subject breaking into
several cars. Officer Jason Misner
arrived on scene and exited his
vehicle with K-9 Loki, reports
said.
As they approached the area,
the subject walked between two
apartment buildings carrying
stereo equipment from a vehicle.
The subject was ordered to stop,
but he decided to attempt to out-
run Loki. The subject attempted
to outmaneuver Loki, who
grasped the subject on the side,
and he ended up in a ditch. The
subject was taken into custody
and transported to Largo Medical
Center with minor wounds.
The subject was identified as


Juan Carlos Molina, 19, of Clear-
water. After he was treated and
released from the hospital, he
was booked into the Pinellas
County Jail on charges of posses-
sion of marijuana, possession of
paraphernalia and burglary of a
conveyance. Bond was set at
$17,176.
On Oct. 30, Clearwater police
sought K-9 assistance for two
armed robbery subjects that fled
from a vehicle.
An undercover Clearwater po-
lice officer observed two subjects
committing an armed robbery on
a subject in Clearwater.
The subjects fled in a vehicle.
Clearwater's K-9 officer began to
track the subject, ending near the


Publix on Missouri Avenue.
Clearwater police asked for a
K-9 from Largo because the
Clearwater dog was fatigued.
Loki, who was with Officer Mis-
ner, led officers to a business at
Lincoln Avenue behind the Pub-
lix. At a business, Loki started to
alert police to the side of the busi-
ness. He then alerted police to
two industrial-size garbage cans.
A couple of hands emerged from
the trash cans and the two sub-
jects were taken into custody.
Steffon Birks, 19, of Seminole
was charged with robbery with a
weapon and possession of mari-
juana. He was booked into Pinel-
las County Jail. Bond was set at
$100,500.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Your Gums Could Make You Sick
Would you be surprised to find out that bacteria in your mouth could lead to a stroke?
Increase your risk for pancreatic cancer? Worsen the symptoms of your diabetes? But
it is true, and all kinds of research offer evidence to support this information.
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 trigger the liver to make proteins such
as C-reactive protein.
This protein is one of the main markers in all kinds of
systemic inflammation, inflammation that can increase the
risk of blood clots and, according to a new study from
Harvard, pancreatic cancer. The Harvard study shows that
men with gum disease were 63 percent more likely to
develop pancreatic cancer when compared to those with no
periodontal problems.
What's more, this bacterial infection has been linked to
serious health problems for pregnant women, leading to
premature and low birth weight babies.
Periodontal disease, not tooth decay is also the leading cause of tooth loss, and a lack
of teeth is bad for your overall health as well. Studies have been done that show those
who lose their teeth have higher medical expenses and fewer years of life. Not only can
missing teeth be psychologically difficult to cope with, creating a lack of confidence
and an unwillingness to smile, it can lead to nutritional deficiencies and painful
misalignment of the jaw.
Shockingly, more than 85 percent of people have some level of periodontal or gum
disease. Why? Often, it is misdiagnosed or simply ignored and there are sometimes no
symptoms of the disease at all!
Here at About Smiles Dental, we care deeply about your whole health. That is why
we do so much more than treat problems as they arise. We think in terms of prevention
and use advanced training and technology to diagnose and treat periodontal disease
before it becomes a major threat to your health.
Since graduating from the University of Maryland Dental School in 1981, Dr.
Panzarella has been using a variety of new technologies to make the non-surgical
treatment of this disease more thorough and much less painful than ever before. In
short, this disease is treatable, even at an advanced stage, to help you keep your teeth
and improve your health.
Why risk your health even another day? Call us at 727.586.1955 to schedule a
complimentary consultation, or visit aboutsmilesdental.com and read what our patients
are saying about us. 2260 West Bay Drive, Largo.

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi



When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it
helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the next time you're shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.

Millie Diaz has been active for years in the fight against cancer


Too busy to retire

Nurse represents hope for area cancer patients


By SALLIE BARR PALMER
Millie Diaz retired in 1998. So what's she doing in
that white lab coat at the Tampa Bay Oncology Cen-
ter in Largo? At 77, Diaz is too busy to be retired.
"In 1980," said Diaz, "when I was working for
Suncoast Hospital, they wanted to start a support
group for cancer patients. They knew I was interest-
ed, so they put me in charge of the service. I contin-
ued in that job until 1998, when I retired at 65."
During those 18 years, Diaz developed a total of
five groups meeting weekly, among them general
cancer patients, breast cancer patients, caregivers
and bereavement groups. In 1997, in recognition of
her services, she was named Citizen of the Year by
the Largo Chamber of Commerce.
Diaz started her career as a nurse's aide at Sun-
coast Hospital while studying nursing at St. Pete
College. After graduating with her RN degree, she
continued at Suncoast in their intensive care unit
until becoming product line manager for the hospi-
tal's oncology program. In 1986, she entered and
successfully completed the first specialized oncology
nursing class given in the country.
"After I retired," Diaz explained, "I continued
working with cancer support groups as a volunteer
with Tampa Bay Oncology and eventually, they
hired me to work full-time."
Along with monitoring and assisting patients, she
has continued with one support group which meets
weekly, comprised of women who include both cur-
rent patients and survivors. The participants have
become friends who exchange news, experiences,
and jokes, as well as discussing cancer-related top-
ics.
Asked to describe Diaz, Dr. John West, head of
Tampa Bay Oncology, said, "she's a combination of
high touch and high tech the ideal combination of
skill, experience and compassion."


In addition to her work at Tampa Bay Oncology,
Diaz has been involved for many years with the
American Cancer Society.
"I'm a lifetime member on the board of directors of
its Pinellas County Unit and I served for two years
on the state board," she said.
"I'm also active in fund-raising activities to sup-
port cancer awareness projects," she went on to say.
"One regular fund-raiser is a fashion show which
has been held annually for 22 years. It's held in the
Largo Hospice Community Room and all the models
are cancer survivors. Fashions are from Nicole's
Boutique on West Bay."
A major project toward which Diaz's fund-raising
efforts are directed is the annual Christmas party
given for children with cancer. "It's open to all pa-
tients of the pediatric oncology clinic at All Chil-
dren's Hospital in St. Pete," she said. "We get about
130 children every year, plus their parents and sib-
lings, who are also invited."
The hospital issues the invitations and collects
the replies, which they pass on to Diaz and her
committee. "Every guest receives a gift," Diaz said,
"but the patients can request something they espe-
cially want, and we try to get it for them."
The party is held at the Vinoy Hotel, which con-
tributes the use of a hall and staff free of charge.
"But funds are needed," Diaz said, "for refresh-
ments, gifts and entertainment." Pediatric cancer
patients come from all over the state to All Chil-
dren's and they are all invited. We have games and
a disk jockey and last year the Rays' mascot attend-
ed."
One committee member, John Blonairg, holds his
own birthday every year and tells his guests don't
bring gifts, bring presents for the children or contri-
butions toward the party."
Tampa Bay Oncology Center is located at 1835
Indian Rocks Road. Call 586-2273.

Area water temps may drop soon


As we brace for our first real cold front of the
year, my only thought as far as a fishing standpoint
is how long will it be cold for?
With any luck the weather will straighten back
out in a few days
and our water
temperatures Fish Tales
won't drop too Capt. Tyson
much. Having a Wallerstein
normal or per-
haps prolonged
fall season would
be such a good thing, especially considering the
harsh winter we went through last year. But as we
all know way too well, we are at the mercy of Mother
Nature in good times and bad.
Kingfishing has yet to get really good in our near-
shore waters. The biggest problem has been the
warmer water. At 77 degrees the water is just a bit
too warm to attract schools of baitfish and, in turn,
predators. This front will hopefully bring it down
closer to that 72 degree mark.
Bruiser-sized kings should be pursued with big
live baits; mullet, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and
shad. Slow troll these baits in close to the beaches
or around near-shore hot spots like the Clearwater
hard-bottom, the drop at Blinds Pass and the ditch
at Egmont Key. Schoolie sized kings can provide fast


action once located. Places like the Betty Rose, Rube
Allyn and the Indian Shores artificial reefs are all
holding kingfish.
Plenty of bait such as cigar minnows and horse
minnows can be found hanging on these reefs as
well. Anchoring up-tide of the reef and putting out a
chum block is a great way to attract the bait and
the kingfish. Be sure to have a couple of rods rigged
with live bait stinger rigs and as you catch your bait
quickly put them out on flat lines.
The weather was post-card perfect for a couple of
days last week and many anglers made the trip off-
shore for some of the fantastic grouper action that
we've been having this fall. I received plenty of re-
ports of anglers catching limits of gag grouper in rel-
atively shallow water. Most people have been hitting
the 50- to 60-foot depths but we've been catching
quality-sized fish as shallow as 30 feet. The key is to
find those small breaks (three feet or less will hold
gags). Use frozen sardines to start but have plenty of
live pinfish, as the bigger fish favor the live stuff.
Until next week, get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
capt.tyson@hotmai.comr To get a fish photo in
the paper, send the photo along with your name,
when and where it was caught to editorial@TB

Gardening 17A


Invasive plants are

more than a weed
Pulling weeds is the bane of every gardener.
The definition of a weed is a plant that is growing where the garden-
er does not want it. Not knowing what was a weed or a plant as a be-
ginner gardener, I was told that if it pulled out easily, it was a plant.
Weeds tend to be determined to last and put their roots down deep
and firmly.
Some of those weeds are
seedlings of some of this area's
l most noxious plants that are on the
S state's official list of invasive plants.
l(t'j/ ^Ab The most common of these is the
Ruth Davies Brazilian pepper tree, or Florida
holly. It was imported from South
America in the 1800s and was tout-
ed as a lovely bush/tree. Then it grew to cover 700,000 acres, shaded
out other desirable plants and seeded itself, with help from birds and
animals that ate the seeds, everywhere.
The tree's blooms can cause respiratory problems; leaves and sap
can cause an itchy rash; and most important, it is an EPA prohibited
plant. It is listed as a Category I invasive plant. If it grows in your yard,
remove it ASAP. If your neighbor has a tree, ask them to remove it -
help weed out the main source.
My desk at work many years ago was graced with a planter that
contained Sansevieria or mother-in-law tongue.
Little did I know that in Florida when that is let loose in the garden,
it grows a root that looks like a carrot on steroids and grows huge
leaves. It spreads underground and will even push up asphalt drive-
ways. Herbicides do not eradicate it; dig deep and keep after them for
about a year.
Every small piece left in the ground will send up leaves and continue
to grow. This plant is considered a Category II for invasiveness.
Another very common plant in my neighborhood is the Casaurina or
Australian pine. Originally planted to control beach erosion, the tree is
now outlawed in many parts of Florida due to its invasive nature and
rapid growth rate. The roots are somewhat shallow, cover a large cir-
cumference and fall to strong hurricane winds.
Constant mowing will discourage the seedlings from growing into
trees. Tree removal is critical to eventual eradication.
If you're on good terms with your neighbors who have invasive trees,
ask them to help to control potential weeds by having them removed.
These are just three of the worst common plants found on property
that spread their seeds far and wide and give gardeners a pain in the
back.

Getting a grip


on 'pill mills'


Pinellas County commissioners are being proactive in their efforts to
stop the proliferation of pain management clinics in the county.
They approved an ordinance Sept. 28 extending its moratorium on
the clinics until October 2012.
Extending the moratorium would give the county's Pain Manage-
ment Task Force more time to complete its work. In addition time is
needed for state laws to come into play that could affect local govern-
ment's need to take measures to address the issue.
"Pill mills" are a threat to public health, safety and the economy.
Statistics show that problems caused by the misuse of prescription
drugs outweigh those caused by the illegal ones.
Deaths related to prescription-drug use in Florida rose from 2,780
in 2006 to 3,317 in 2007, and then to 3,750 in 2008, according to
Time.com.
Among the controversial provisions of the ordinance is a require-
ment that pain management clinics must have diagnostic clinics. But
such a provision is prudent.
Law enforcement officials recently visited a clinic that essentially
was a waiting room in the back where an individual sat with a stack of
prescriptions. County officials said no medical equipment was found.
The ordinance also includes new additional requirements, such as
the inspections of registered facilities to determine accuracy of infor-
mation supplied for the permit. Clinics must provide a list of clinic em-
ployees and associates, whether paid, unpaid, part time or full time,
and include owners, operators, physicians, physician assistants, em-
ployees or authorized agents. Clinics may not employ anyone who has
been convicted of a drug-related felony in the last five years. The hours
of operation for pain management clinics are limited to 7 a.m. to 9
p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The rapid rise of the clinics has forced local, state and federal gov-
ernments to respond quickly to threats they pose on society. Encour-
aging is that robust discussion continues over how to deal with the
issue.
For instance, candidates for state attorney general recently outlined
their plans to deal with pill mills. Both support the creation of a
database that would help cut down on doctor shopping.
There are no simple solutions to the rise of pain-management clin-
ics, but it's hard to find fault with the county's efforts to get a grip on a
problem that's becoming an epidemic.


LETTERS
Abused women should take responsibility
for themselves
Re: 'Domestic violence victims gain voice through art"
Editor:
I worked at the Haven a few years back. I'm also a guardian ad
litem. I doubt if canceling Howl O' Scream at Busch Gardens is
going to help the problem of domestic violence in America. The
shelters are pity parties run by formerly abused women. It was re-
ally an excuse for everything, accountability for very little.
I talk to women all the time. Your husband or boyfriends abuse
you and your children; don't work, etc., and you put up with it.
You even bail them out of jail after they beat you up. My favorite
excuse for not leaving was, "the sex was too good." The mom had
two daughters, 11, and 14. I know this sounds harsh but it is
true.
You know what ladies? I'm tired of your excuses. Spare me the
"poor me, I'm a victim," after you go back there, three, four, five,
ten times. You are no longer a victim; you are an idiot. Your kids
are the real victims and should be removed from you. You are just
helping to create another generation of abusers. Stop blaming ev-
erything on someone else and start taking responsibility for your-
selves. You are liberated. Start acting like it. In addition, I may
add, my daughters agree with me.
More bad news the police and courts can't protect you. Get on
your flak jackets. There is a war going on out there. Ninety plus
women murdered in Florida so far this year.

Some notes on sleeping and waking


Which is our more natural state: being
awake or slumbering?
You can muster a strong argument for ei-
ther condition, depending on who's doing the
talking. Dedicated sleepers, if roused too
early, have been known to do enormous bodi-
ly harm to the person who prodded them
awake. Equally unhappy are chronic night
owls, such as 8-year-olds addicted to TV or
their computers, who are forced to shut down
and crawl into bed.
What are the things that have roused hu-
mans from sleep, over the eons? Dawn would
probably be first on any comprehensive list of
wake-up devices. As morning light filtered into
cave openings, the troglodytes of 80,000 B.C.
became aware of the new day and its opportu-
nities, limited as they must have been.
Morning hunger has always been a wake-
up stimulus. A growling stomach can be just
as motivating as an alarm clock. The smell of
fried bacon and fresh coffee can catapult a
sleeper out of bed. A full bladder also will do
the job. Or an infant crying in its crib.
So can the threat of unemployment and
starvation. The Book of Proverbs is sprinkled
with warnings of what will happen if we sleep
too much or too long. "A little slumber, a little
sleep, a little folding of the hands to sleep. So
shalt thy poverty come ..." The antidote: go to
the ant (or was it the honeybee?) and be wise.
My quotations may not be all that accurate.
I became best acquainted with reveille while
serving in the armed forces. During four years
in the Navy I was encouraged to get up and
get going each day at 6 a.m. The wake-up de-
vice was usually a whistle, a piercing, persua-
sive screech piped into the ship's public
address system. Sailors were free to respond
to the reveille call as they wished, but if they


P


Driver's Seat

dallied in their bunks too long they risked
missing out on breakfast or of not showing up
on time for ship's muster. That transgression
could bring regrettable penalties.
For a couple of years my ship housed a
sadist named Jones as its master-at-arms.
One of his pleasures was to descend on the
crew's living quarters 30 seconds after reveille
was sounded. He roused us by grabbing the
edge of our bunks and yanking us up and
down, all the while cursing at us. His tech-
niques were effective; most of us learned to
swing out and put our feet on deck before
Jones arrived.
Jones later died and is now burning in hell,
or so I would like to believe.
The earliest alarm clocks were probably
church bells, calling the faithful to get up and
go to church to pray. Religious leaders have
never answered the question of why prayer
could not be just as effective when rendered
from a warm bed.
This space is not large enough to list all the
wake-up tools that humans have devised.
The old windup Westclox alarms were mighty
powerful. They could blast you out of bed in a
hurry, even if it was just long enough to grab
the alarm clock and heave it against the wall.
The snooze alarm was meant to soften the
pain of awakening by giving you two or three
gentle reminders. However, the snooze alarm


could easily be turned off. The result, in the
20th century alone, was 2.4 million workers
being fired for tardiness at their jobs. (That
statistic may not hold up under careful
checking).
The passage of time has brought dozens
of new methods of waking us. Radio alarms
can greet us with the latest news and weath-
er report, or the best of Beethoven, or the re-
venge ballads of Taylor Swift. Most cell
phones have alarm applications, often with
several ringtones to choose from.
Unfortunately, many persons have trouble
achieving sleep each night. Witness the phar-
maceutical ads, with their promises of bliss-
ful slumber (and the small-print warnings
about possible side effects). Someone has
said that no one ever died from insomnia.
Maybe, but others notably prisoners of war
have been assisted toward madness by
being deprived of sleep for long periods while
being grilled by their captors.
Here's a drill we all might perform. Look
back and think of the period in your life
when you felt most alive, most awake. What
was going on? How old were you? Who in
your life helped you feel awake? Where did
your energy come from? If you had the
chance, would you return to that time and
live it again?
Sleeping and waking are often only relative
terms. Most of us are only partly awake, and
are content to remain so. To be fully awake
risks seeing and knowing more than we can
handle at the moment. Or it could mean un-
dergoing an epiphany, a transforming experi-
ence that might rock us to our heels. You
never can tell.

How I (sort of) attended the rally to restore sanity


Hail to the moderates! Hail to
the American middle! Hail to the
political apathetic! Hail to Jon
Steward and Steven Colbert's
ability to rouse an estimated
215,000 of them off of couches
across the nation, onto planes
and to their nation's capital for
the Rally to Restore Sanity
and/or Fear!
CBS News reported the official
estimates for the Oct. 30 rally
based on aerial photos of the Na-
tional Mall. So far, the number
hasn't been widely disputed, ex-
cept by Glenn Beck fans who
wish their own rally of somewhat
less than 100,000 had proved
greater than Steward's parody of
it.
However, I'd like to take issue
with the estimate. I wonder what
time the aerial photos were taken
and if it would have been more
telling to take a wider shot of the
city and include the crowds
milling around in the several
blocks around the National Mall,
the patronage of D.C. restaurants
where many people ended up
watching the rally and the thou-
sands (thousands!) of people
stuck underground or miles away
while the rally carried on.
Because here's the number
with which I am more intimately
familiar as an attendee of the
rally: the Washington Metropoli-
tan Area Transit Authority esti-
mated they had 825,437
Metrorail trips that day, com-
pared to an average Saturday rid-
ership of 350,000 and breaking
the record for Saturday ridership
set in 1991 during a Desert
Storm rally.
My rally group and I arrived at
our local Metrorail station at
about 11:30 a.m., far later than
we had planned but still confi-
dent that we would catch a ma-
jority of the rally, which was set
to start at noon. We were sadly
mistaken. The line just to buy
Metrorail passes held us captive
for another hour and a half. The
trains headed toward Washing-
ton, D.C., were packed like sar-
dines by the time they reached
our station, which was only the
third stop on the Orange line. We
watched dozens of would-be
rally-goers give up and walk back
to their cars, sanity signs and
fear costumes drooping a bit in
disappointment. Hundreds more
waited hopelessly on the plat-


form, desperate to find just inch-
es of space in the next train,
enough to squeeze their bodies
and let the sliding doors shut.
Eventually, we got on a train
that had been purposely emptied
and headed in the opposite direc-
tion of the rally. Cheers erupted
for every station we passed and a
mini celebration broke out when
the train turned around and
started back toward D.C.
I ended up sitting next to a
gentleman who was headed, not
to the rally, but a birthday party
in Annapolis. I offered my condo-
lences for his unfortunate timing.
He wanted to know about the
rally that was making him hours
late.
"Could you explain your
signs?" he asked. "What's the
message behind them?"
Message? I thought. What's my
message? I had no message in
particular. The rally was about
restoring sanity and reason to
politics, I told him.
The answer didn't satisfy him.
"I would think you'd want to
educate me on your cause, so
that maybe I would change my
viewpoint," he countered.
No. I shook my head. Actually,
I wouldn't. I explained to him that
the rally-goers were merely repre-
senting the chance to debate
civilly, to disagree and not, as
Jon Steward had put it, declare
your opponent the next Adolf
Hitler. I believe in compromise
over accomplishing nothing in
Congress and practical solutions
versus ideological stances that re-
fuses to calculate in another
point of view, I explained. The
rally-goers were people that didn't
describe themselves as the ex-
treme left or right, as a sharply
liberal or unmovable conserva-
tive, I said.
"Do you think this will make a
difference?" was his last question.
I shrugged. Since collectively,
we had no message, we couldn't
expect any difference in policy. I
personally hoped only that the
politicians would take note of our
numbers and be reminded that
the majority of Americans didn't
respond to their most extreme
messages.
After several more delays, the
Metrorail let us off at our desired
stop just after 2 p.m. We spent
another 15 minutes standing on
the train platform, unable to


move up the stairs and out into
the sunlight, blocked by impene-
trable crowds stopped like the
Baltimore Beltway during rush
hour. In the end, we made it onto
the National Mall, where the rally
was taking place, by no sooner
than 2:30 p.m., just a half hour
before the rally was due to end.
I don't regret the pitfall-
plagued attempt to witness the
historic rally, though I would
have loved to see Steward and
Colbert's on-stage antics up close
and be part of the crowd's re-
sponse. In hindsight, I should
have called ahead for media pass-
es ("Yes, I'm covering the rally for
a weekly paper in Tampa Bay,
Fla., and I demand front-row
seats, next to the New York Times
and Washington Post reporters,
dang it!).
Instead, I was lost in the mid-
dle, surrounded by thousands
who also couldn't hear, couldn't
see, but had come to lend their
support, if in number only, to the
cause of rational discourse.
Besides, the signs, lofted even
by the late-goers trapped at
Metrorail stations, were the best
part of the rally. They were a
breath of fresh air, a confirmation


Ironic

that we moderates, the politically
un-polarized, are not alone in our
nuanced and diverse reasoning.
Where we are used to seeing the
masses shaking signs that we
can only shake our heads at,
here was the proof that thou-
sands, maybe millions, of people
had the same reaction to strong-
ly-worded calls for action against
the end of our country as we
know it.
Among my favorites: signs that
stated calmly, "I disagree! But I'm
over it." or "I am mildly concerned
about the state of things." Anoth-
er declared "Real Patriots can
handle a difference in opinion."
Many people cited the need for a
Coffee Party in opposition to the
Tea Party extremists. Several
signs pointed out God's hatred
for things other than gay people,
like Glenn Beck fans or hate it-
self. One sign was designed like a
multiple choice question with

'The President" and "You" as op-
tions to answer "Hitler is ..."
(third-option "Hitler" was circled
as the correct response. The
teacher gave the student, proba-
bly a Tea Party-er, an "F" for
choosing otherwise).
Representing the parody-in-
clined Colbert's fear side of the
rally was a man dressed in a
wide-brimmed black hat and full
beard, carrying a "Fear the
Amish" sign in front of his white
cotton shirt and suspenders. Sev-
eral people warned the crowds to
fear an invasion of their own
kind: Asians and Guatemalans
among them.
But probably the most apropos
was a sign held by a guy ahead of
us in the line to buy Metrorail
passes. The sign almost said
"Plan Ahead" in bold, black let-
ters, except that the "D" was too
big to fit at the end of the poster
board. I would think that the
ironic message had been meant
to stay confined to the person's
poster-making abilities and, like
my group of rally-goers, he had
no idea how ill-fated his noncha-
lant attempt to attend the rally
on time would be.
What I do know now is this: if


ever Comedy Central ever holds
another political rally to prove
that the vast majority of the na-
tion is just too busy with their
normal lives to have strong, po-
larized opinions, I won't be late.
I'll camp out the night before or
buy Metrorail passes ahead of
time or get up before sunrise so
that I can be in D.C. far before
the late-coming crowds clog all
avenues of transit.
I will believe that middle Amer-
ica can be enthusiastic about ca-
sually disagreeing and supportive
of parody and humor in place of
doomsday threats and irrational
prejudice against masses of peo-
ple that, in general, don't hate
America or our way of life. I will
believe that while Steward and
Colbert's purpose is comedy, the
message that resonates with the
majority of us is the non-riotous
call for our politicians and rat-
ings-crazed media to "take it
down a notch."
And I hope through collective
donations to the Trust for The
National Mall and the rally-goers'
commitment to using trashcans
and walking calmly, we left
D.C., and the political sphere,
better than we found it.

When his ship left port, Bob stored the ring in the officer's commu-

Naomi Watts and Sean Penn star in "Fair Game."


Opening this week


Downey Jr. stars in 'Due Date' while Sean Penn is 'Fair Game'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the
following films opening in wide release:

'Due Date'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan,
Jamie Foxx and Juliette Lewis
Director: Todd Phillips
Rated: R
From director Todd Phillips, "Due Date" stars Robert Downey Jr.
and Zach Galifianakis as two unlikely companions thrown together on
a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous.
Downey plays Peter Highman, an expectant first-time father whose
wife's due date is only days away. As he hurries to catch a flight home
to Los Angeles from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best in-
tentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring
actor and disaster-magnet Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis) leads to the
two of them being tossed off the plane and placed on a no-fly list ...
while Peter's luggage, wallet and ID take off without him.
With no alternatives in sight, Peter is forced to hitch a ride with
Ethan and his canine traveling companion on what turns out to be a
cross-country road trip that will destroy several cars, numerous friend-
ships and Peter's last nerve.

'Fair Game'
Genre: Drama, thriller and biopic
Cast: Naomi Watts, Sean Penn, Noah Emmerich, Liraz Charchi and
Nicholas Sadler
Director: Doug Liman
Rated: PG-13
A suspense-filled glimpse into the dark corridors of political power,
"Fair Game" is a riveting action-thriller based on the autobiography of
real-life undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts), whose
career was destroyed and marriage strained to its limits when her
covert identity was exposed by a politically-motivated press leak.
As a covert officer in the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie
leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruc-
tion in Iraq. Valerie's husband, diplomat Joe Wilson (Sean Penn), is

drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched
uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings
and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joe writes a New York
Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of con-
troversy.


'For Colored Girls'
Genre: Drama and adaptation
Cast: Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Michael Ealy,
and Omari Hardwick

November 4, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
This week is a lesson in self-
control. Control your spending,
control your appetite, control
your habits-take charge of your
life, Capricorn!

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
Push too hard, and you could
pay for your actions big time,
Aquarius. Go easy and adopt a
lighter approach. A new do in-
spires a new wardrobe.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
You have a lot to do, but rush-
ing is not the answer, Pisces.
Take your time and complete
each task with attention to de-
tail. A relationship expands.
Aries
March 21 April 19
Be careful you don't bite the
hand that feeds you, Aries. Show
appreciation for whatever comes
your way, no matter how small
or big. A painstaking project
ends.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
A change in perspective whets
your appetite for success, and
you begin to formulate plans,
Taurus. You enter a new phase
in your relationship, and passion
burs bright.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
Silence is golden. Cherish it
while you can, Gemini, and use
the time to get caught up. A fi-
nancial glitch is cause for con-
cern but can be rectified easily.
Cancer
June 22 July 22
Home improvement plans
must be put on hold when the
unexpected happens. Have fun
but be safe, Cancer. The race to
meet a deadline begins.
Leo
July 23 August 22
The urge to travel hits, and a
road trip may be in order. Go
someplace unusual, Leo. A pesky
problem resurfaces. Look within
for the answer.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
Want to make your dreams
come true, Virgo? Share them
with others. A financial goal is
met. Celebrate with friends. The
scales begin to tip in your favor

OPENING, from page 1B


Director: Tyler Perry
Rated: R
In 1974, Ntozake Shange's choreopoem "For Colored Girls Who
Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf' made its
stage debut, combining poetry, dance and music and most signifi-
cantly, placing the black female experience center stage.
In lyrical, honest, angry, funny and tender language, Shange's
"colored girls" evoked the feelings woven into the fabric of black fe-
male life in America. Within two years, the play became a Broad-
way sensation, won an Obie and Tony Award, and would
eventually be produced in regional theaters throughout the coun-
try. Now, 36 years later, filmmaker Tyler Perry adapts this land-
mark work for the big screen, integrating the vivid language of
Shange's poems into a contemporary narrative that explores what
it means to be a woman of color and a woman of any color in
this world.
"For Colored Girls" weaves together the stories of nine different
women Jo, Tangie, Crystal, Gilda, Kelly, Juanita, Yasmine, Nyla
and Alice as they move into and out of one another's existences.
Some are well known to one another, others are as yet strangers.
Crises, heartbreaks and crimes will ultimately bring these nine
women fully into the same orbit where they will find commonality
and understanding. Each will speak her truth as never before. And
each will know that she is complete as a human being, glorious
and divine in all her colors.

'Megamind'
Genre: Action, comedy and animation
Cast: Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and David
Cross
Director: Tom McGrath
Rated: PG
Megamind is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever
known ... and the least successful.
Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imag-


4 MUS T ANG FLEA


inable way. Each attempt ends in a colossal failure thanks to the
caped superhero known as Metro Man until the day Megamind
actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans.
Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain
arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can
the world's biggest "mind" actually be the one to save the day?
The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks
before these films appear in local movie theaters.

'127 Hours'
Genre: Action, drama and sports
Cast: James Franco, Amber Tamblyn, Kate Mara and Lizzy Ca-
plan
Director: Danny Boyle
Rated: R
"127 Hours" is the new film from Danny Boyle, the Academy
Award winning director of 2008's Best Picture, "Slumdog Million-
aire."
"127 Hours" is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ral-
ston's (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after
a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated
canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life
and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage
and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary,
scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally
rescued.
Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (ClI-
mence Poesy), family, and the last two people he ever had the
chance to meet. This visceral, thrilling story promises to take the
audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we
can do when we choose life.

'Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer'

This documentary feature takes an in-depth look at the rapid
rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.
Nicknamed "The Sheriff of Wall Street," when he was New
York's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by
America's largest financial institutions and some of the most
powerful executives in the country. After his election as governor,
with the largest margin in the state's history, many believed
Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation's first Jewish
President.
Then, shockingly, Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipi-
tous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer the
paragon of rectitude had been caught seeing prostitutes.
As his powerful enemies gloated, his supporters questioned the
timing of it all: As the sheriff fell, so did the financial markets, in a
cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy. With
unique access to the escort world as well as friends, colleagues and
enemies of the ex-goveror (many of whom have come forward for
the first time) the film explores the hidden contours of this tale of
hubris, sex and power.

'Four Lions'
Genre: Foreign and comedy
Cast: Kevin Eldon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Julia Davis, Rizwan
Ahmed and Craig Parkinson
Director: Christopher Morris
Not rated
Chris Morris' "Four Lions" is a comedy that illuminates modem
jihadism through the prism of farce. Omar (Riz Ahmed) is disillu-
sioned about the treatment of Muslims around the world and is
determined to become a soldier.

Florida ski club connects snow lovers with the slopes


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER- Even Florida's
warm climate can't deter avid ski
lovers. There are at least 17 ski
clubs in Florida, including the
Snow Sharks Clearwater/St. Pe-
tersburg Ski and Sports Club.
Holly Wagner of Hernando
Beach was one of the club's first
members back when it was
formed in 1983 and is now trip
coordinator in the group. A
bunch of members of a dive club,
the Sea Bunnies which is based
out of Clearwater, decided they
wanted to go skiing, and out of
that, the club was formed, she
said. Now the group has about
250 participants.
"I always tell people I joined the
club so I can ski with my 44 best
friends," Wagner said. "And I've
probably traveled with the same
group of people for 20 years at
least."
The club members often find
that people are surprised that
there are so many ski clubs in
Florida, but it's a bigger deal here
because people can't just jump in
the car and go on a spontaneous
ski trip on the weekends like they
can up north, said Louis
Scalafani of Largo, the club's
marketing coordinator. The club
has gatherings, parties and other
sporting events throughout the
year, but ultimately it is a year-
long anticipation of that one-
week ski trip, he said.
"It's a big event when they (ski-
lovers) go, so they typically want
to go to nicer places, they want to
go with people who have like-in-
terests," Scalafani said. "One of
the things is if you and your
spouse want to go skiing, it's rare
that both people are at the same


ability, so one holds one back or
inadvertently pushes the other
too far. So when you go in a
group, you can have a group of
people who want to ski green,
they go together. And others who
want to ski blacks all go togeth-
er."
The club generally plans high-
er-end trips, staying at nice ho-
tels or condos that are
conveniently close to the slopes.
Because they travel as a group,
however, they get discounted
group rates on many of the ex-
penses, such as hotel rooms, lift
tickets, rentals, and transporta-
tion is reasonable, as they split
the cost of a bus, Scalafani said.
People who are single can also
benefit because not only do they
not have to go and ski alone, they
can be set up with a roommate,
said Helen Knox of Palm Harbor,
vice president of the club.
This season the club has
planned five ski trips, including
one European trip. The sched-
uled trips are to Breckenridge,
Colo. in January; Vail, Colo. in
February; Whitefish, Mont. in
February; Kitzbuhel, Austria in
February and March; and to
Steamboat Springs, Colo. over
spring break in March and April.
The club always includes one
European ski trip each year and
includes an optional pre-trip,
which is a four-night stay in an-
other European city where people
get to have a more general Euro-
pean vacation. This year, the
group is traveling from Munich,
Germany to Zell-Am-Ziller, Aus-
tria for the pre-trip. Often on
these trips, not everyone who
goes are skiers, Knox said. Some-
times one or two people in a fami-
ly skis, but they bring the rest of

the family as a special vacation,
and they spend the day shopping
or sightseeing or doing other ac-
tivities.
Although each trip is different,
there are some basic things that
people can expect of the trips
when they sign up. There is al-
ways a pre-trip party where ev-
eryone can get aquatinted with
who they will be traveling with as
well as pick up all the informa-
tion they will need, including air-
line tickets, trail maps,
information on the mountain,
what events and parties there
will be, the full itinerary and
schedule and other information,
Wagner said. On the day the trip
begins, the trip leader greets


people at the airport to make
sure they get through the bag-
gage and check-in areas, and the
trip co-leader meets people at
the gate, she said. The goal is al-
ways to find a direct flight, but
sometimes it is necessary to
have a layover, she said.
When the group arrives at the
final destination, they all climb
onto a bus that will take them to
the mountain or to the lodging. If
they are staying in condos with
kitchens, they will first stop at
the grocery store so people can
buy supplies for the week, Knox
said. Once at the mountain,
there is a greeting party, get
their rentals at group rates, and
make skiing plans for the next
day, Wagner said. Sometimes
people choose to ski only with
their smaller group of friends or
family, but the group always sets
up a plan for people to meet and
ski together if they so choose, so
no one has to ski alone if they


don't want to.
Mid-week there is a group
happy hour, and there is always
a complimentary group dinner
towards the end of the trip, Wag-
ner said. About a month after
the trip, there is a reunion party
where people share pictures and
stories, she said.
"When I first joined the club, I
thought, this is just great," Wag-
ner said. "I just give them my
money, they hand me my tick-
ets, they tell me when to show
up, they tell me where to get off,
they tell me when to come back,
and they tell me when to go
home. Everything is planned for
you, and there are a few parties,
too."
Scalafani said the club can
offer a comfort level for people
who may otherwise not go on
such trips especially the Euro-
pean trips.
"It's one thing to go to Col-
orado with your family or by


yourself, but when you go to an-
other country, I think there's a
comfort level that just feels bet-
ter when you're traveling with 20
or 30 other people who speak
the same language, understand
the same thing," Scalafani said.
Wagner said that has been the
case for her, plus the club has
helped her see the world.
She doubts that she would
have traveled to Europe so many
times had it not been for the
club. It also made it much more
affordable because of all the
group rates, she said.
She said the same idea can
even be true for the continental
trips.
"I think it's the same way for
our Colorado and our (domestic)
ski trips because there are a lot
of people who would not have
gone if they hadn't gone with the
club," Wagner said. "I think
that's an important thing for
people who travel on their own. I
hear all the time, 'Oh, my wife
doesn't ski, so I usually ski
alone, and now I'm joining your
club so I can ski with someone.'
And that's where the club is a
real benefit to people: Price, con-
venience, and you always have
someone to ski with."
There are still spots available
for this year's trips.
The economy has made it
harder these past few years to fill
the trips, but they still remain
popular, Knox said.
The rest of the year, the club
holds monthly activities, from
kayaking, biking and camping to
scalloping, picnics and parties.
The club meets on the second
Tuesday of the month September
through May at 7 p.m. at the
Thirsty Marlin, 351 West Bay
Drive, Largo. Newcomers are al-
ways welcome.

Anderson brings taste of Tull to Ruth Eckerd Hall


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

Ian Anderson, the legendary
leader of Jethro Tull, is in the
midst of a 25-show North Ameri-
can autumn tour that will in-
clude a stop in the Tampa Bay
area.
Anderson will perform a solo
concert Thursday, Nov. 11, 8
p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111
McMullen Booth Road, Clearwa-
ter.
Tickets range from $43.50 to
$69.50. Call 791-7400 or visit
www.rutheckerdhall.com.
Anderson, who celebrated his
40th year as a recording and per-
forming musician in 2008, is best
known as the flute and voice be-
hind the celebrated band Jethro
Tull. While that may be his prin-
cipal claim to fame, the artist's
resume is more complex than
that: Anderson also plays ethnic
flutes and whistles together with


acoustic guitar and the mandolin
family of instruments, providing
the acoustic textures which are
an integral part of most of the
Jethro Tull repertoire.
Born in 1947 in Dunfermline,
Fife, Scotland, Anderson spent
time studying art before settling
on a career in music. Despite ex-
hausting touring sometimes av-
eraging over 100 shows a year -
over four decades, Anderson has
never grown tired of his profes-
sion.
"I didn't leave art college to be-
come a pop star," Anderson ex-
plains on his website. "I left to
attempt a career as a professional
working musician. I love my job
and I still have it. And I already
got the gold watch."
In 1968, he oversaw the forma-
tion of Jethro Tull, bringing to-
gether elements of the John Evan
Band and McGregor's Engine,
two blues-based UK groups.

Since its debut performance at
London's Marquee Club, Jethro
Tull has released 30 studio and
live albums and sold more than
60 million copies.
Apart from his work with
Jethro Tull, Anderson also has a
successful string of solo releases.
He has so far recorded four di-
verse solo albums in his career,
including 1983's "Walk Into
Light," the flute instrumental "Di-
vinities" album for EMI's Classi-
cal Music Division in 1995, 'The
Secret Language of Birds" in
2000 and "Rupi's Dance" in
2003.
At Ruth Eckerd Hall, Anderson
is expected to share more goodies
from the Jethro Tull back cata-


logue, including many of the
acoustic tracks from the early al-
bums as well as some new solo
material specially written for
these shows. The evening will in-
clude electric and acoustic per-
formances. Joining Anderson will
be Florian Opahle on guitars;
John O'Hara, accordion and
piano; David Goodier, bass gui-
tar; and Scott Hammond on
drums.
They will perform classics such
as 'Thick as a Brick," "Aqualung"
and "Bungle in the Jungle."
Anderson is often asked if he
ever grows tired of playing the
same songs night after night.
"If they were not decent songs,
then I certainly would," Anderson

explains on his website. "But I
am lucky to have a good collec-
tion of material which I still enjoy
playing."
According to Anderson, he has
more than 250 songs to choose
from for any given performance.
"Anyway," he continues, "much
of Tull's music contains elements
of improvisation, so the songs are
never the same two nights run-
ning. There is always some scope
for variation and interpretation in
each performance."
While Anderson hasn't released
any new solo material since
2003's "Rupi's Dance" and Jethro
Tull hasn't released a new studio
album since "The Jethro Tull
Christmas Album," in 2003.


Legendary Jethro Tull frontman
lan Anderson, set to play at Ruth
