SEMINOLE Larry Ahem had little time to savor his
victory.
The Republican from St. Petersburg, along with all
other newly-elected state leaders, is in Tallahassee this
week for a briefing following his win over incumbent
Janet Long Nov. 2 in the State House of Representa-
tives District 51 race.
Ahern, who ran on a platform of government ac-
countability, garnered 50 percent of the vote for a six-


point victory over Long, who served
four years in the state Legislature.
Victoria Torres, a Tea Party candi-
date from Orlando, picked up 6
percent of the vote.
"It's an honor for me to serve and
S- I want people to know I'm there to
serve them," Ahem said. "I'll be vis-
ible at a much higher level in the
Irry Ahern community as a state representa-
tive."
Ahem credited an intensive door-to-door, grass-roots

County focuses on transportation needs Around Pinellas


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners gave unanimous
support Oct. 26 to a plan to merge the Pinellas Planning Council and
the Metropolitan Planning Agency into a new consolidated board.
The commissioners also approved an ordinance amending the fu-
ture land use and quality communities element of the comprehensive
plan to provide for transit-oriented development. While sitting as the
Countywide Planning Authority, they approved a countywide plan
amendment regarding a transit-oriented development map category.
For the past six months, a joint land use and transportation com-
mittee, chaired by Commission Chair Karen Seel, has met to study the
potential for consolidating transportation and future land use planning
at the countywide level.
The committee "recommended that the MPO and PPC functions be
more closely aligned on transportation and land use issues to create a
more streamlined and integrated process, which should identify and
eliminate any redundancies, disconnects or inefficiencies in the cur-
rent system," according to a resolution the committee is asking munic-
ipalities, county commissioners and the county's legislative delegation
to support.
The committee further recommended that the process include a new
countywide future land use plan, "which establishes a broad, forward-
looking land use planning framework, incorporates and guide multi-
modal transportation planning and allows sufficient flexibility to
accommodate the redevelopment needs of Pinellas County."
According to a report from the committee to the county commission-
ers, "the most effective way to achieve these goals would be to unify the
membership of the boards of the MPO and the PPC into a single con-
solidated board that would be empowered to carry out the functions of
both the MPO and PPC ..."
The committee is encouraging local governments to support the con-
solidation and is looking for the Pinellas County Legislative Delegation,
which meets on Nov. 22, to support the legislation necessary to accom-
plish the recommendation.
Two new members would be added to a consolidated board. One
would represent the cities of Belleair, Belleair Bluffs, Gulfport, Kenneth
City, Seminole and South Pasadena. The other would represent Bel-

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
It's a Matter of Life and Breath
It's a bright, new morning in Florida, but your partner isn't ready to get out of bed.
She didn't sleep all night because you were snoring and now she just wants to roll over
and try to forget the noise with a little more sleep.
Although it is loud and can disturb anyone trying to sleep nearby, snoring has more
than social implications. Chronic, loud snoring disturbs
sleep and can therefore lead to fatigue and daytime
drowsiness. This can be a real danger. Responses slow,
memory difficulties can begin, performance and
concentration at work and during driving can suffer.
But snoring can also indicate a more serious condition.
If you are experiencing daytime sleepiness, chronic fatigue,
morning headache, irritability, impaired memory and
judgment and mood disturbance, more than sound may be
disturbing you. Loud snoring can be a signal that
something is seriously wrong with your breathing during sleep. Excessive snoring may
indicate obstructive sleep apnea, a condition caused by obstruction near the base of the
tongue.
The real indication of sleep apnea isn't snoring. It is when snoring stops, along with
breathing. Sleep apnea can cause a person to stop breathing for periods of time,
sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.
When you stop breathing, your brain wakes you up and that is when the loud
gasping and the resumption of snoring are heard. This constant cessation of breath and
consequent waking can have a devastating effect on health. The oxygen in your blood
can become depleted. There is even evidence that sleep apnea can worsen
fibromyalgia, obesity, diabetes, trigger hypertension, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
And if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, you certainly aren't alone: Obstructive
Sleep Apnea affects more than 20 million Americans.
During sleep, the throat area relaxes, allowing these structures to collapse against
one another and obstruct clear airflow. Together with a sleep physician and after
testing, a special custom made oral appliance can be fabricated that will gently and
safely hold the throat in an open position during relaxed sleep and thus prevent snoring.
You'll find yourself waking refreshed and renewed without surgery or the need for
an uncomfortable and noisy CPAP machine or other forced air devices. It is a healthy,
comfortable way to find yourself sleeping well and waking refreshed again!
I'd like to help you get back to a full productive life. To find out more about how I
can help stop your snoring and treat your sleep apnea call me today at 727.586.1955 or
visit aboutsmilesdental.com and read what our patients are saying about us. 2260 West

The total membership of the new board would be 13. The current
MPO has 11 members. The board includes one representative from
Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park and Dunedin; two representatives
from St. Petersburg; a rotated seat shared by Oldsmar, Safety Harbor,
Tarpon Springs; three county commissioners; and one PSTA member.
Jewel White Cole, with the Pinellas County Attorney's office, said the
new "unified agency" would wear two hats, one for the transportation
planning and the second for land use planning.
Commissioner Susan Latvala said if the merger were approved by
the state, it would make simple land use changes more economical for
citizens.
Cole said a proposed new countywide plan would contain fewer cat-
egories and lessen the need for change requests.
The merger of the MPO and PPC is just one of the many steps coun-
ty officials are undertaking to improve transportation and prepare for
the future. The changes to the comprehensive plan and land use map
also support transit-oriented development.
Officials are expected to ask Pinellas County residents to support a
penny sales tax to help fund construction and operation of a rail or
fixed-guide way transit system.
"Construction of such a transit system would represent a major
public investment in the county's future," a staff report said. 'The re-
sulting level of transit service would provide convenient, frequent and
high quality service for walkable, mixed-use urban development
around the transit stations at a scale consistent with the surrounding
community."
Transit oriented development is an approach that favors develop-
ment of areas within an easy walking distance of transit stations,
roughly the area within one-half mile of the station, the report said.
An agreement has been signed between Pinellas County agencies
and the state Department of Transportation to undertake a federal
transit administration alternatives analysis to identify the preferred
transit corridors for the first phase of a rail or fixed-guideway transit
system.
If approved by the voters, transit stations would be located in St. Pe-
tersburg, Clearwater, Largo, unincorporated Pinellas and possibly
Pinellas Park.
The alternative analysis is anticipated to be complete in 2012, after
which time, officials will most likely schedule a referendum.

City struggles to downsize Penny wish list
CLEARWATER- When the City Council met on Jan. 31, 2007 to ap-
prove its $130.6 million list of Penny for Pinellas projects to be accom-
plished between fiscal years 2010 and 2020, the council members
didn't realize that revenue from the 1 percent sales tax surcharge had
already peaked and had started to follow the economy into the cellar.
At that time, the county's estimate of Clearwater's share of Penny
revenue was $137 million for the 10 years. In March 2009, the county
downsized that estimate to $118 million.
"Since that time, revenues have continued to decline," a recent staff
memo to the council said. "At this time, staff has estimated funding for
the 10-year period should be reduced to approximately $92 million.
This will require the further elimination and/or reduction of planned
projects."
At the council's Nov. 1 work session, City Manager Bill Home had
his department heads and senior staffers sit in the first few rows of
seats so that they could instantly come to the podium with their input
on how the cuts could be made.
The proposed changes submitted by budget director Tina Wilson
would cut $2 million from the $8 million previously earmarked for the
Downtown Intermodal Facility, which will take tourists arriving from
Orlando from downtown to the beach via express buses and, later, by
high-speed rail. Its terminal would be at the former St. Petersburg
Times site if the city and the newspaper can reach a mutually agree-
able price.

No short-term rentals for Belleair Beach
BELLEAIR BEACH An ordinance prohibiting short-term rentals of
single family homes in Belleair Beach will remain.
The unanimous consensus of the City Council at its Nov. 1 meeting
was to keep the current minimum rental length of three months or
longer. The council may increase the minimum in the future after
more study of the ordinance. The city will work more on code enforce-
ment and the council plans to meet with Code Enforcement Officer
Jack Ouimette.
Resident Rick Davis said there was a problem with code enforce-
ment in his neighborhood and short-term rentals were the worst-kept
houses in the neighborhood. Resident Paul Clements said they need
more time of the code enforcement officer; he talked about several
complaints he made to the city about a short-term rental near his
home.

Changes proposed for Pinellas tourist tax collections


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners will consider
amendments concerning the administration and collection of
tourist tax during public hearings scheduled on Nov. 16 and Nov.
30.
The commissioners will discuss revisions requested by Tax Col-
lector Diane Nelson during the first hearing on Nov. 16 at 9:30
a.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room at the Pinellas County
Courthouse, 315 Court St.
The second hearing on Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. will consider exten-
sion of the fourth cent of the 5 percent tourist tax, which currently
goes toward debt service for Tropicana Field, and proposed revi-
sions to the tourist development plan. A work session on the mat-
ter at 1 p.m. on Nov. 16 will precede the public hearing.
Nelson requested changes to the code relating to quarterly and
electronic filing of tourist tax payments, bad check charges, dis-
pute resolution provisions and the permitting and approval pro-
cess. The Tourist Development Council recommended approval of
the revisions at its September meeting.
If approved, fees for bad checks would increase as follows: $25
for checks $50 or less; $30 for checks more than $50 but less
than $300; $40 for more than $300 but less than $800; and $50
for values more than $800.
Changes to the dispute resolution code gives taxpayers, who
have been notified by the tax collector that a written dispute re-
quires more information, the right to request in writing an addi-
tional 15 days to submit the required information. If the taxpayer
does not submit the information within the 15 days, the dispute
shall be dismissed and the taxpayer will forfeit their rights.
The proposed revisions also include a new section be added to
the code, permits and approvals, which defines activities requiring
a permit, the Convention Visitor Bureau's responsibilities in the
permitting process, facilitation of permits, conditions, denials,
transfers, revocation and fees.
The Nov. 16 workshop and Nov. 30 hearing will take up matters

that are more complicated: the extension of the fourth percent
tourist tax and revisions to the tourist development plan.
According to the staff notes, the Tourist Development Council
considered, debated and revised this plan at multiple workshops
and TDC meetings, and approved this plan, as well as recom-
mended the extension of the fourth percent tourist tax.
The TDC's approval worries Commissioner Susan Latvala.
Commission Chair Karen Seel, who sits on the TDC, said during


the TDC discussions "something for everyone" was added to "sat-
isfy concerns" of all who need money, including the Sports Com-
mission and beach renourishment.
'That's what I was afraid of," Latvala said. "Everybody got a little
something to go along."
Latvala said she wanted a "bigger discussion." Commissioner
Nancy Bostock agreed, saying she also had concerns about the fu-

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 re;ill love this place,"
said Becky of Seminole. "1 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. Anrtrctions just does great hair."

Joanne Reeves, owner of Aiitrctions. explains it best. "'We have
found that most of our clients primarily come in for hair services and
alre.ad have a favorite niln or skin technician that they are happy
with," she said. "For that reason, we've eliminated oilier 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
exiniple. our Redken color, cut & style is just $65 e ernda%. and
Men's shampoo and cuts are only $15. We also have gre.t pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."

Ai Al.rnacioins. iel pro ide a non-competitive serri]n "You'll 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
st lsi; who are not only Redken-trained, but ilhe 're employees of
our company-so our clients never feel pressured when they come
here. They can always choose the stylist ilhey inm. at a time that's
convenient for them. We want them to feel comfortable "

DUNEDIN There was a flurry of Facebook activi-
ty in mid October when Dunedin Brewery an-
nounced that it would be tapping the first keg of its
new autumn amber, Honey Pumpkin Ale, brewed
with pumpkin and local honey.
The buzz culminated Oct. 15 with a successful
sampling that pleased patrons, and another ale was
added to the brewery's long list of ambrosial selec-
tions. Those who visit Dunedin Brewery will find a
number of fresh local beer offerings on tap year-
round, including such names as Piper's Pale Ale,
Redhead Red Ale, Apricot Wheat Ale, Lowland
Wheat Ale, Razzberry Wheat Ale and Celtic God Ale.
Developing that lineup didn't happen overnight-
and the decision to found the business more than a
decade ago required a catalyst.
"A 1994 economic and health scare pushed me to
do something that I always dreamed of," said
Michael Bryant, owner of Dunedin Brewery. Bryant
had long wanted to bring fresh homemade brews to
others for their enjoyment. "It\ was a simple process
... that could involve the whole family and possibly
provide better economic stability vs. that of the con-
struction industry I was involved in then and now."
While the process may be simple, Bryant admit-
ted that the business aspect is complex, fraught
with difficult state laws. Still, Bryant managed to
turn his home-brewing hobby into his livelihood,
opening Dunedin Brewery in 1996. Despite the in-
tricacies of growing a new business, from his van-
tage point, the brewery was an immediate success.
"It is still a daily effort to keep the dream stable
and developing," Bryant said. "Success to us is
being able to offer your hand-crafted product to the
lovers of fresh local beer no matter how large or
small the amount. So I guess we were successful
from the start."
Bryant pointed out a number of challenges he has
faced as a business owner.
'We, like others, have been affected by the eco-
nomic situations presented over the past years,"
Bryant said. "9/11 stopped a 25 percent per year
compounded growth rate years ago."
Bryant also said that hurricanes of the recent
past had exposed the business to the stress associ-
ated with the possible loss of all its in-process prod-
uct.
'That could have been devastating," Bryant said.
The owner of Dunedin Brewery believes the un-
folding of the economic reset is sill under way.
"We at Dunedin Brewery will change with the
needs of our customers as the reset of economic
principals unfolds," Bryant said. "We will always
strive to fulfill customers' changing needs for local,
fresh products through our off premise packaging
and on premises products through our tap rooms at
the brewery."
Norman Dixon serves as the head brewer at
Dunedin Brewery. He stared in the brewing scene in
the surf town of Solana Beach, Calif.
"He brewed at G.T. Vitos on U.S. 19, Palm Har-
bor, then Hoppers Brewery, in East Lake/Palm Har-
bor," Bryant said. Bryant studied under Dixon's
hand at Hoppers to get his commercial experience.
Dixon did stints as brewmaster at Maumee Bay
Brewing in Toledo, Ohio, and the Brickhouse Brew-
ery in Patchogue, N.Y., before returning to Pinellas
to join the team at Dunedin Brewery.
Trace Caley currently serves as assistant brewer.
"Caley was born and raised in Dunedin," Bryant
said. "A home brewer that worked his way to profes-

one to run a negative campaign," she said. "Every-
thing (in Ahern's television commercials) was a total
distortion and lies. It is what it is."
Ahern said his conservative roots would con-
tinue to be the basis of his decision-making pro-
cess in Tallahassee.
"I think good business practices can be applied
to government," he said. "Our priority will be to

a profession.

sional brewing, he started with Dunedin Brewery in
our bottling and packaging operation in 1998."
Many Dunedin Brewery brews have earned awards
and recognition over the years.
The Highland Games Ale won the 1998 World Beer
Championship Silver Medal in the Scottish Ale Cate-
gory. Pipers Pale Ale won 2003 BFBC Best Beer in
Florida and Dropkick Murphy's Erin Red won the
2010 U.S. Open Beer championship Gold Medal in
the American Amber category. In addition, Dunedin
Brewery offerings have earned numerous gold, silver
and bronze medals from Best Florida Beer Champi-
onships since 2002, along with other local beer festi-
val honorable mentions.
From the patrons' standpoint, the favorites are
clear.
"Apricot Peach Wheat and the Redhead Red,"
Bryant said, are clear winners. 'The Brewmasters
Reserve releases sell very well."
The establishment has become a landmark in
Dunedin.
"When we opened the brewery in Dunedin, there
wasn't much of a village," Bryant explained. "Most of
the businesses had moved out of Dunedin to the new
frontier of U.S. 19 and East Lake."
Bryant recalled that there were a lot of vacant or
failing shops in the downtown district at that time.
"It was fun to be one of the businesses that drew
new visitors by offering something different," Bryant
said. 'This helped shape the Dunedin downtown core
to what it is and is progressing into a place where
visitors can find other than the normal everyday
shops and services found elsewhere."
Dunedin Brewery gives back to the community
that has helped the business thrive.
'We donate time to volunteer on local committees
and help with events like the Highland Games Com-
mittee, Dunedin Merchants Association and Adopt a
Street," Bryant said. "We donate hand-crafted bever-
ages to help develop Rotary events and chamber
events."
The business also is looking toward the future by
thinking green.
'We are striving to make our facility a sustainable
facility by reducing our energy use," Bryant said.
"Our plan will save energy use and provide leader-
ship to other businesses in the community to follow
our path."


balance the budget. You have to do that in busi-
ness. So I think that will be my biggest priority."
"I wish Mr. Ahern a tremendous amount of
good luck because governing isn't very easy,"
Long said.
Long said she didn't know what her political
future may hold but added she would "not be
hiding away."
She said spending time with her husband and
grandchildren would be her first priority.

Preservation of working


waterfront likely in Madeira


By WAYNE AYERS

MADEIRA BEACH A consensus decision to pre-
serve a privately-owned property as a working wa-
terfront was confirmed at a Nov. 2 city workshop.
Commissioners agreed last month to sponsor a
$1 million-plus state grant for Fishbusterz, one of
the city's last remaining fish houses. That action
would have committed the city to preserve the prop-
erty in perpetuity for commercial fishing or aquacul-
ture.
The consensus to move ahead with the grant ap-
peared in doubt after questions were raised by City
Attorney Michael Connolly and City Manager W.D.
Higginbotham.
Higginbotham has had concerns all along that
the city would not own the property, but be respon-
sible for its use. Requirements from the city regard-
ing matching funds and difficulties that could arise
from some of the grant's provisions were expressed
in a letter from Connolly delivered to the commis-
sion members late last month.
All of the questions raised caused Mayor Pat
Shontz, who had been in favor of the grant, to de-
clare, 'This is all so confused and mixed up our citi-
zens have no idea what's happening."
Shontz said she feared the grant's restrictions
"could wind up backing us against a wall."
Commissioner Steve Kochick continued his oppo-
sition, pointing out that all other preservation
grants awarded by the Florida Communities Trust
were for publicly owned properties.
"Nowhere else are they dealing with private enti-
ties," he said.
'What if Eric (Dickstein, Fishbusterz owner) left
the area, then what do we do?" Shontz asked,
adding, "Would the city want to operate a fish
dock?"
Higginbotham said his concern has always been
what would happen if the property owner aban-
doned the project. In that case, the city would be re-
sponsible to make sure some other fishing-related
business came in on someone else's property, he
said.
"It's not clear to me if we could go out and secure
some other business to operate on his property,
making certain it is a commercial fishing entity,"
Higginbotham said. He added, "If we can't do it, (the
property) would sit vacant in perpetuity."
Fishbusterz co-owner Charlie Renier answered
the critics, saying he had a very substantial mort-
gage on the property.
'We have put $700,000 into a property worth $2-
$3 million," said Reiner. "If anyone in this room
thinks we are going to walk away from that, they are
crazy."
Renier said he and his partners "make our living
from the water. We are here to stay."
After Renier finished, Vice Mayor Terry Lister de-
clared, "I am absolutely for a working waterfront."
Lister's stance had been in doubt, while Commis-
sioners Nancy Oakley and Carol Reynolds reaf-
firmed their support for sponsoring the preservation
grant. Shontz moved from favorable to uncertain.
The commission must now take a formal vote on
the issue. It is expected to be on this month's regu-
lar meeting agenda.

Kochick reports vandalism
Early Nov. 3, the day following the commission
workshop, someone smashed a rear window of
Kochick's car that was parked at his condo on Mu-
nicipal Drive, he said.
Though Kochick said he hoped the incident in-
volved "just teenagers driving by," he noted it hap-
pened the day following a very contentious meeting.


This would not be the first incident of civic-relat-
ed vandalism in the city, Kochick said, citing the
spray painting of Commissioner Nancy Oakley's ve-
hicle in July.

Ships Store cost cut
A newly designed Ships Store for the marina will
have an estimated price tag not to exceed $325,000.
Conceptual drawings of the facility were distributed
to the commission.
Lister said he liked the new building design much
better than the previous one, which would have cost
at least $969,000.
The commission had ordered a redesign of the
store after construction bids for the project had in-
dicated a price approaching $1 million. Both de-
signs have the same square footage.
The new Ships Store was described by marina
manager Dave Marsicano as "a very working, func
tional building with nothing I can't go to Home
Depot to replace." The previous store design had a
lot of custom elements, he said.
Public works director Michael Maxemow said the
new building design is "simple and straightforward."
He predicted a lot of people would be interested in
bidding on the project.
When the last design was shown to contractors,
"a number of them left shaking their heads," Higgin-
botham noted.
Oakley recommended the city contract out opera-
tion of the store to an outside vendor. "I can't see
the city putting $250,000 worth of inventory into
that store," she said. Higginbotham said an outside
operator could be considered. "Having someone else
run it is certainly on the table," he told Oakley.
The commission quickly reached a consensus to
move ahead with the new Ships Store.

Dollar Tree store a definite go
Construction of a new Dollar Tree store that
would occupy four storefronts on the south end of
Winn-Dixie Plaza is now definite, Higginbotham told
the commission.
When questioned on the subject last month, Hig
ginbotham said the project was "more than a
rumor, but not definite."
He did not give a start date for the project or esti-
mated opening date.

Christmas lights to stay
A request by Lister that the city consider replac-
ing a portion of the annual holiday lighting on Gulf
Boulevard with banners was turned down.
A savings of $12,000 would be possible if half of
the lights were replaced with banners, Lister said. If
the lights were eliminated altogether, the savings in
electricity and maintenance costs would jump to
$25,000.
Oakley and Kochick were cool to the idea.
'The Christmas lights are one of the few things
everybody in the town enjoys," Oakley said. "Look at
North Redington Beach (which has banners only) -
at night it is nothing."
Maxemow said Progress Energy no longer allows
the city to repair the electrical outlets on the poles
that are used for the lights, claiming that is their ex-
clusive responsibility. "It gets expensive when they
do it," he said.
Maxemow recommended the city "put up the
lights this year and then we've got a whole year to
decide what to do."
Kochick said the lights are pretty and a benefit to
the community, but he recommended the beach
communities band together and urge Progress En-
ergy to "lighten up a little bit" on the repair issue.


TI considers intersection upgrades


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND The first steps toward a
possible traffic signal or other alternative at the St.
James intersection was put in motion Nov. 2 during
a city workshop.
City commissioners decided to move forward on a
resolution to award a contract not to exceed
$25,167 to study different options for the project.
If approved by commissioners, the study will be
conducted by EC Driver/URS at the intersection
where 104th, 107th and 108th avenues converge.
A recent study by EC Driver/URS recommended
the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection
based on the satisfaction of four of eight warrant
conditions set forth by the Institute of Transporta-
tion Engineers Traffic Engineering Council.
'We're planning to go back to draw up alterna-
tives, come back to you and based on your input,
come back with a final recommendation," said
Domingo Noriega of EC Driver/URS.
Noriega said the study will address the following
alternatives to a possible traffic signal:
Left turn traffic restriction for all approaches.
Left turn traffic restriction for minor street ap-
proaches.
Rerouting of east turning traffic at the intersec-
tion of 108th and 107th to First Street East and
107th Avenue.
Conversion of either the St. James intersection
or First Street East and 107th Avenue into a round-
about.
Reconfiguration of the St. James intersection
geometry to reduce the east (left) turn angle from
108th Avenue.
In spite of the fact that the intersection has been
the site of 40 accidents over the past three years,
commissioners questioned the need to spend the
money on the project.
"I'm opposed to this," said Commissioner Phil
Collins. "Spending $25,000 on an intersection that
doesn't have a history of accidents doesn't make
sense to me."
Public Works director Jim Murphy explained that
certain turns off 107th Avenue to adjacent streets
were problematic and the accidents statistics
backed it up.
"I have concerns," said Commissioner Gail Cald-
well. "I'm interested in making 108th (Avenue) one-
way. Is that a viable alternative?"
"It's something we would consider as an alterna-
tive," said Murphy.
Commissioner Carol Coward said she favored
holding off.
"I'm apprehensive about spending this money
now until we see what (the city's) Visionary Com-
mittee says," she said.
Meanwhile, Commissioner Alan Bildz said he fa-
vored spending the money for intersection upgrades
but not on a traffic signal.
City Manager Reid Silverboard explained that
there was definitely a need with four of eight war-
rant conditions met.


"You only need one of the warrants to need a traf-
fic signal," said Silverboard. "So there's definitely a
need at this intersection that needs to be ad-
dressed."
Commissioners will likely discuss the issue fur-
ther on Nov. 16.
In other action, commissioners:
Moved forward on a resolution that would allow
Suncoast Surf Shop, 9841 Gulf Blvd., to conduct
skimboard and standup paddleboard camps on the
public beach directly across from the shop. Sun-
coast would pay the city $25 per month as part of a
nonexclusive license agreement.
Moved forward on a resolution to purchase a
specially-equipped camera van to inspect the condi-
tion of the wastewater collection system and the
city's stormwater discharge system. Cost of the ve-
hicle is $208,925.
Moved forward on a resolution to accept a
$148,231 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block
Grant, appropriate $7,000 in matching funds for a
total of $155,231, and authorize Silverboard to
enter into a contract with Public Management and
Funding Services for not more than $10,000 to ad-
minister the grant. The money would be used to
purchase energy-efficient lights, fixtures and win-
dows in city buildings.

Fire rating may drop
TREASURE ISLAND The city needs to come up
with additional funding for the fire department to
ensure that four firefighters are working on each
shift.
ISO, a New Jersey-based company that provides
risk information to insurance companies, recently
evaluated all fire departments in Pinellas County
and found Treasure Island operating with three fire-
fighters instead of the recommended minimum of
four about 50 percent of the time, due to staff vaca-
tions and sick leave.
Fire Chief Charlie Fant told commissioners Nov. 2
the city needs to quickly upgrade to four full-time
firefighters per shift to maintain its current Class 4
fire rating.
Otherwise, Fant said, ISO will drop Treasure Is-
land to Class 10 the lowest rating. If that hap-
pens, fire insurance rates in the city could triple,
according to ISO.
"It looks like we'll have to upgrade funding for
overtime," said Fant. "That would be about
$130,000 for this year."
Treasure Island, like other one-fire station cities
in the county, use firefighters from other cities to
help with fires in the city limits.
Fant said three pumpers, a ladder truck and
about 15 firefighters is a normal response for a fire
in the city limits. He said there are five fire stations
within five miles of Treasure Island that help out in
emergencies.
"What they (ISO) are telling us one-station cities
is that we cannot use mutual aid as an alternative,"
said City Manager Reid Silverboard. "We have to
use our own personnel."

Police beat


Body found in
Seminole area lake
SEMINOLE The body of a
53-year-old man was retrieved
Nov. 4 from a small lake east of
the Seminole Gardens Apart-
ment complex.
According to a sheriffs re-
port, the man was identified as
Ricky D. Stottler whose last
known address was 10415 Va-
lencia Road, Seminole.
The body was recovered on
the east side of the lake, identi-
fied as Sunrise Lake, closest to
10991 Oakdale Terrace in
Seminole.
Detectives said the body was
removed from the lake by re-
sponding fire rescue personnel
and apartment complex em-
ployees.
The cause and manner of
death was to be determined by
an autopsy. Detectives said
there were no signs of foul play.

Student arrested for
computer fraud
LARGO A Largo teen was
arrested for computer fraud
after allegedly accessing the
Pinellas County School Dis-
trict's computer server and
changing students' grades.
Pinellas County Sheriffs Of-
fice and School Resource Unit
deputies arrested Brennen
Browder, 17, Nov. 4 in his
Largo apartment.
According to deputies, since
about Oct. 19, Browder had
been continuously accessing
the Pinellas County School Dis-
trict's computer server via
NOVA NET under the identity of
David Cross, a Bayside High
School teacher. Bayside High
School is located in Clearwater.
Browder had reportedly logged
into the system using his laptop
computer at his home.
Browder repeatedly changed
possible grades, and granted
himself and three other stu-
dents, approval of class mod-
ules, which they had not taken,
a sheriffs office report said.
Browder was able to get the
teacher's username and pass-
word by observing the teacher
typing this information into the
Nova Net System.
The crime was discovered
when a teacher at the school
was denied access to the sys-
tem because of a password
change. An investigation into
how that occurred eventually
revealed Browder had been ac-
cessing the system and making
changes.
Deputies interviewed Brow-
der who allegedly admitted to
the crime. He was arrested for
one count of computer fraud
and taken to the Pinellas Juve-
nile Assessment Center.
The investigation continues.

Arrest made in
hit-and-run case
LARGO -The Largo Police
Department made an arrest in
the investigation of a pedestrian
fatality Nov. 1 on Seminole
Boulevard after receiving a tip
from a citizen about the suspect
and his vehicle.
A pedestrian was crossing
westbound across Seminole
Boulevard in the area of 127
Place North at 7:26 p.m. Nov. 1.
The pedestrian was struck by
a vehicle in the median lane.
The vehicle then fled the scene
of the crash, northbound on
Seminole Boulevard.
Investigators from the Largo
Police Department's Traffic
Homicide Unit responded to the
crash scene and began their in-
vestigation.
On Nov. 2 investigators re-
ceived information from a citi-
zen which led them to both the


suspect and the suspect's vehi-
cle. This information was re-
ceived as a result of the media
coverage of this incident, police
reports said.
Benjamin Gene White, 21,
was arrested for leaving the
scene of a crash involving
death.
He has been transported to
the Largo Police Department.
His vehicle has also been locat-
ed and identified as a 2008
Hyundai Sonata.
Additional charges may follow
as this investigation continues.
At this time, it is believed
that White was the driver and
solo occupant of the vehicle at
the time of the crash.
The pedestrian who was


struck and killed during the
crash has been identified as
John Robert Barthorpe, 57, of
Largo.

Man charged with
attempted murder
LARGO A Clearwater man
was booked into Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail Nov. 7 for attempted
murder and other charges after
he allegedly fired shots from a
handgun at some motorists.
Largo police said that Adrian
Stubbs, 24, a convicted felon,
arrived to work sick and was
sent home.
He was hanging around a
Kentucky Fried Chicken park-
ing lot and engaged in conver-


station with the victims of this
incident. Stubbs was showing
an interest in a handgun that
the victims had in their vehicle.
Stubbs became aggressive, ask-
ing to hold the victim's gun, but
was refused permission, reports
said.
The victims secured the gun
in the center console and began
to back out of a parking space
when Stubbs lunged into the
car, took the .40 caliber semi-
automatic and fled on foot. The
victims called 911 and kept an
eye on Stubbs, reporting his lo-
cation. The victims' pursuit
ended when they cornered
Stubbs, who leveled the hand-
gun at them. The victims made
a quick U-turn at which time


Stubbs fired at them, striking
the top of their trunk lid de-
flecting the round into the
trunk.
Officers arrived and Stubbs
fled from them in the area of
Royal Palms and East Bay
Drive. A perimeter was set up
and a Sheriffs Office K-9 and
helicopter assisted. When
Stubbs was eventually located,
he no longer had the handgun,
but a .40 caliber round was
found in his pants pocket.
Stubbs was arrested and
charged with being a felon in
possession of a firearm, felon in
possession of ammunition,
armed burglary and attempted
murder.
Bond was set at $160,150.

Fundraiser set for Jason Strickland
Local sponsors, family and friends will host a fundraiser for Jason
Strickland of Seminole Sunday, Nov. 21, 1 to 5 p.m., at Quaker Steak
and Lube, 10400 49th St. N.
Quaker Steak and Lube will donate 15 percent from food and drink
sales to the cause.
The event will feature local bands, classic cars and motorcycles.
Five years ago, while going to class at St. Petersburg College on his
motorcycle, Jason was run off the road by a driver who did not stop.
He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center where, paralyzed from the
neck down and fighting for his life, he spent months in intensive care.
After months on the physical therapy floor, Strickland was released
from the hospital. He has since returned for injury-related surgeries.
Strickland's ongoing struggle to recover includes intensive physical
and occupational therapy as well as regular water exercise. He also at-
tends Pinellas Technical Education Center five days a week, where he
continues to inspire his instructors and fellow students.
Funds raised are administered by the National Transplant Assis
tance Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides fundraising assistance
to transplant and catastrophic injury patients.

received the books. And they were
very excited to be able to write their

theirs to keep."

14A Fishing


Beacon, November 11, 2010


Big change in the weather always has an effect on fishing


There's no question that al-
most a 10-degree drop in the
water temperature in a 24-hour
period is going to have an adverse
effect on our fishing.
Dramatic surges in the baro-
metric pressure can make fish
have lockjaw or feed like crazy.
As I fished my way through the
first real cold front of the year I
noticed a few things that helped
me understand Mother Nature's
effects on fishing, as we brace for
the seemingly endless barrage of
cold fronts.


SFish Tales
Capt. Tyson
Wallerstein

Maybe these tidbits will help
you understand and be more ef-
fective at catching fish in the face
of adversity.
Water clarity. When the wind
howls straight out of the north di-
rectly following a passing cold
front, the Intracoastal Waterway
can get pretty dirty. Most people


will agree that a north wind is the
hardest to fish around here just
because there are few places to
seek protection on a wind
blocked shoreline. Fish are not
happy in dirty, muddy water,
even if you fish a spot that you've
had great success at recently but
the water resembles coffee with
cream. Don't stay there long if
you're not getting a bite. Those
fish are probably still there or
somewhere nearby but there
probably not going to bite too
good until it cleans up again.


Lower than normal tides.
Outgoing tides will always be ex-
treme when the wind is blowing
out of the north and transversely
the incoming tide will be weaker
than normal as the wind will hold
the water back. The benefit of
this phenomenon is that with all
the exposed areas you can easily
see the deeper troughs that fish
will use to make their way on and
off the flats and also will allow
you to find the deeper holes that
the fish might bunch up in as
they wait for the water to come


back in.
Clear blue skies. When all the
clouds finally move out and high
pressure builds back in on the
backside of the front, the sky is
often bright blue and completely
cloudless. This might look pretty
enough but can make for some
tough fishing. Shallow water fish
become very wary under these
conditions and will often lay on
the bottom motionless and wait
for more favorable conditions.
Slow down your presentation
when casting artificial lures, or


switch to cut bait instead of live
bait. This will give predatory fish
a better opportunity to find your
bait.
Until next week, get bent!

along with your name, when
and where it was caught to ed

Pets are often falsely accused of spreading diseases


Ladies and gentlemen of the
jury, in closing, my client Fluffy
McTailwaggins, could, in fact, not
possibly be guilty of the crimes
for which he has been accused.
The prosecutors, ignoring all sci-
entific evidence, have falsely ac-
cused my defendant, and many
pets, of spreading diseases which
are not their fault. While blaming
the dog whenever for passing gas
may be fun, these accusations
are serious, unfair, unfounded,
and cause many pets to lose their
homes unnecessarily. Some of
the diseases that typically do not
come from pets include toxoplas-
mosis, head lice and pinworms.
Toxoplasmosis is a very
frightening disease for pregnant
women. Women exposed for the
first time to this parasite while
pregnant can have their fetus
sustain severe brain damage, and
may even be linked to
schizophrenia. Cats can have se-
vere symptoms as well, from
seizures and other neurologic
symptoms or severe liver disease.
While many pregnant women are
told that they need to give that
cat up because of the risk of this
parasite, few obstetricians warn
their patients about the most
common ways to catch toxoplas-
mosis, which includes eating un-
dercooked meat, especially pork,
and from soil exposure, such as
during gardening. Fully cooking
meat, and wearing gardening


Speaking of Pets
Michael J. Rumore,
D.V.M.


gloves and washing hands after-
wards, are immensely more im-
portant preventative measures
than forcing cats out of their
homes. Cats typically catch toxo-
plasmosis from prey, so keeping a
cat indoors is by far the best pre-
vention. Wearing gloves and
washing hands after cleaning the
litter box are easy ways to avoid
even the very small risk a cat my
bring. Additionally, because the
toxoplasmosis spores take more
than a day to become infective,
cleaning the litter box daily can
further eliminate the risk.
Head lice (Pediculus hu-
manus capitis) are a skin para-
site known to many parents of


school age children. Lice feed on
blood, and can be very difficult to
remove from any animal. Most
mammals and birds have lice
that live upon them, but these
pests are very picky about from
whom they feed off. Human lice
feed on humans, and dog lice
feed on dogs. While human lice
may bite a dog, and can even
cause itchiness, they cannot live
on a dog. Dog lice may temporari-
ly live on a person, and even lead
to a rash, but they cannot repro-
duce and propagate unless they
are on a dog. If your kids have
head lice, it simply cannot be
from the family dog.
Pinworms (Enterobius), also


known as threadworms or seat-
worms, are disgusting, yet com-
mon parasites of children and
adults. These very small worms
are known for causing intense
itchiness as they leave the rec-
tum. Pinworms, like many intes-
tinal parasites, are species
specific people worms live in
people, not in dogs or cats. Chil-
dren who catch pinworms have
caught them from other people,
not from the family dog or cat.
Hygiene and hand-washing are
imperative to prevent transmis-
sion of pinworms. Pinworms are
not the same as tapeworms,
which look like flat grains of rice
and can be commonly found in
the stool of dogs and cats. Dogs
and cats who have tapeworms
typically catch them by eating
fleas, though eating rodents or
other wildlife may expose them as
well. Good flea control, as well as
keeping your cat inside, can re-
duce their exposure to tape-
worms.
It is true that there are dis-
eases and parasites that can pass
between pets and people. But, too
often these days, pets lose their
homes because of worries about
diseases which could not be their
fault.
Gentlemen and ladies of the
jury, I rest my case.

owner of Lake Seminole Animal
Hospital.

Healthy Families Pinellas


honored for excellence


Healthy Families Florida recently recognized
Healthy Families Pinellas with a Fiscal Year 2009-
10 Excellence Award for providing outstanding serv-
ices to families and maintaining a commitment to
high standards of excellence.
Healthy Families Pinellas is a voluntary home vis-
iting program with a proven record of preventing
child abuse and neglect in 98 percent of the high-
risk families served in Florida. The program began
serving families in Pinellas County in 1992 and now
serves more than 2,300 local families and children
each year.
'The economic success of our state requires a
strong foundation of healthy, safe and productive
families," said Program Director Ray Hensley. "We
help families overcome a variety of serious chal-
lenges to grow into healthy families that can con-
tribute to their communities and provide their
children with the safe, stable and stimulating expe-
riences they need to achieve their full potential."
Parents enroll in Healthy Families Pinellas during
pregnancy or just after the birth of their child. Dur-
ing home visits, parents receive information on
healthy child development and learn parenting
skills. Parents also work toward specific goals they
set for themselves, such as continuing their educa-
tion and finding stable housing and employment.
Florida taxpayers pay more than $64,000 a year
to care for an abused or neglected child, while


Healthy Families prevents child abuse and neglect
for less than $1,700 a year per child.
'We have a responsibility to invest in effective pre-
vention, for both moral and economic reasons," said
Mike Stone, JWB Children's Services Board of Pinel-
las County Inc., the primary founder for Healthy
Families services in Pinellas County.
Along with JWB, Healthy Families Pinellas is also
funded by the Healthy Start Coalition of Pinellas
County, Circle of Parents and Healthy Families
Florida (through a contract between DCF and the
Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida).
Healthy Families Pinellas is operated out of the
Pinellas County Health Department, which is the
lead agency. Community partners helping to imple-
ment this local home visiting initiative include
Bayfront Medical Center, St. Petersburg General
Hospital, Morton Plant Mease Health Care, Opera-
tion PAR and Suncoast Center Inc. Healthy Families
Pinellas is accredited by Prevent Child Abuse Ameri-
ca.
"Healthy Families is proven to prevent child
abuse and neglect, improve maternal and child
health and increase family self-sufficiency. Their
value to the Pinellas County community should not
be underestimated," said Carol McNally, Healthy
Families Florida executive director.

rWhat You Don't


Know and What Your Doctor Doesn't Know to Tell You ...
... Can Be Harmful to Your Health


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

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA



I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife,
Brooke, and I bought it. We were working hard to build a
business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help
our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.
Instead, they asked us if we could serve food to the workers,
engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to
cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we
weren't the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and
kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and
down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed.
Our restaurant's open six days a week. Customers are filling our
restaurant again and we think it's a good time to come down to
the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here
and while it's been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just
one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to
seeing you.

Tax vote not



the last word
As disappointing as the vote was in Hillsborough County to reject a
1-cent sales tax increase for transportation improvements, area lead-
ers should continue to be aggressive in their support for ways to in-
crease mobility.
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, which was
established by the state Legislature in 2007, is leading the most ambi-
tious and thorough approach to solving traffic gridlock ever undertak-
en in the seven-county area it serves.
Numerous reports have shown that the area lags behind almost all
other metropolitan areas in transportation improvements. Business,
community and government leaders have embraced the need to im-
prove the transportation system and see it as a catalyst to create long-
term economic development opportunities for the area.
Along those lines several entities in Pinellas County are laying the
groundwork for enhanced mass transit, such as commuter rail. Offi-
cials in Pinellas, too, have been considering an increase in the sales
tax to fund mass transit.
That's logical, since the sales tax has proven to be a solid source of
funding to build infrastructure, as evident by the Penny for Pinellas.
Tourists also pay a substantial amount of sales taxes annually to the
county, reducing the tax burden on local residents.
Nevertheless, the defeat of the sales tax proposal in Hillsborough
County should be scrutinized carefully before Pinellas and other coun-
ties put a similar proposal before the voters especially in a weak
economy that's contributing to anti-tax sentiment.
Spurred by the defeat of the tax, the transportation authority wants
to help other counties learn from Hillsborough's experience as they
move forward with their own initiatives. That's a step in the right direc-
tion, one that will help ensure that regional transportation remains a
priority.
Whether it's public education or more planning that's needed to
come up with a funding source to develop a more efficient transporta-
tion system, area leaders should consider the defeat of the sales tax
measure as just that not a referendum or the last word on rail sys-
tems or another transit option, as expensive as they may be.
Officials have worked too hard and have come too far in their efforts
to develop a regional transportation system to be dissuaded by one
vote on a funding source.


LETTERS
Remembering John Wolbert
Editor:
As friends of John and Linda Wolbert for the past 15 years, my wife
Barbara and I were deeply saddened when we learned of John's pass-
ing.
Reflecting on our relationship with John after reading the news
made us aware how fortunate we were to have had the privilege of as-
sociating with him and enjoying his company and council. However, it
also made us aware of the fact so many people who were affected by
the contributions John made to the community were either unaware of
them or worse took them for granted.
For all the years we knew John, his plate was full yet he always
found time and space to do more. Though his family always came first,
he never failed to be there as a friend or confidant. His "other family,"
those at the Dolphin where Linda and John shared a labor of love, cer-
tainly knew the pleasure of being a part of something far more than a
simple business. What they enjoyed was a partnership built of concern
for those laboring with a common purpose.
It is the citizens of the community who benefited so much from
John's time that I fear knew far too little of John and Linda's contribu-
tions and personal sacrifices on their behalf.
Time spent in community service is time taken away from one's fam-
ily and personal life. Worse, one who chooses to serve, not as a profes-
sional politician whose motives may be questioned but as a citizen
fulfilling a civic obligation, soon find themselves subjected to attack
and criticism. John knew this but still accepted the challenge.
As a member of the Madeira Beach (City Commission), he was the
best kind of officer. I am referring here to the fact that John served not
out of choice but because he was drafted by a group of his fellow citi-
zens, of which I was a part, to run for office. Together, we contrived to
convince John it was important to have someone with no ax to grind -
just an ordinary citizen of the community on the board. I will never for-
get how reluctantly he acquiesced.
It was not a case of unwillingness to serve that made John reluc-
tant. At the time Linda was fighting a debilitating and persistent ill-
ness. This, coupled with an increased share of the responsibility for
running a business on which several people depended, was taking
more and more of John's time and energy. Then there was the matter
of the constant problems of rebuilding their home that had been de-
stroyed by a hurricane. John found himself in the middle of a constant
struggle with government agencies, the insurance company and the
contractor. If this was not taxing enough, there was also the time de-
manded by his service on the library board.
Only those who invested heavily in community service will ever truly
understand the sacrifices demanded not only of the person who choos-
es to get involved but equally of their family. However, all of us, and es-
pecially those who were John's detractors, should take a moment and
reflect on what this kind and decent man, as well as his family, sacri-
ficed for us.

Opposed to killer shelters
Editor:
To quote Lillian Jackson Braun on cats: 'These intelligent, peace-
loving four-footed friends who are without prejudice, without hate,
without greed." These peace-loving animals are being killed in shelters
at a great number. The SPCA of Tampa Bay being one of the culprits -
their crimes: They just dare to live in a world dominated by the human
race with its rules and regulations. As a member of this race, I am
strongly opposed to these killer shelters that destroy our pets at will.
There are times when an animal, like a human, becomes so old or sick
that keeping it in a cage/bed for months on end, without hope of ever
leaving that cage/bed, would be highly cruel.
However, these shelters are making up their rules as they see fit, to
satisfy their financial needs, on which pet will live and which one will
die, all based on their arrogant ignorance of the right to all beings to
live their lives to their fullest, being human or animal. These shelters
must be forced to abandon their mass abuse of pets/animals.
There are proven methods to "limit" the number of pets, although
most of them are not enforced to their fullest potentials for a number
of reasons. I was advised by an organization that laws permitting these
abuses/cruelties must be changed. Myself, I will try to change them;
But I will need help from all decent humans to achieve these changes.
In memory of my two cats, "Mustache" and "Bunny."

Enjoyed Torres's column on rally
Re: 'How I attended the rally to restore sanity,' Viewpoints column by
JulianaA. Torres, Nov. 4.
Editor:
An entertaining and factually correct story as my wife and I were in
the middle of the rally also. We were there as a preplanned holiday fol-
lowing my class reunion in Ohio. The mostly under-30 crowd was well
behaved and easy to talk with. As we stayed in Rockville, Md., we too,
had a fun metrorail ride down to the mall. The trip back was a night-
mare. Chatted with people on the motel shuttle ride, on the metro and
at the mall. Comments were: "I like to go to any rally" from California,
it's Halloween, "can wear a costume," "party time." But most were seri-
ous and mostly neutral to left, but open to discussion. To this end the
name is Jon Stewart not Steward.

Needed: more psychic readers


A few days ago I was thumbing through a
Pinellas County phone book looking for "pub-
lications." Along the way, I ran across the list-
ing "psychic readings."
As a lifelong fan of spooky-doo, I took time
to count the listings. Turns out there were
only about 20 psychic readers, some local
and some nationwide. Since Pinellas County
has about 930,000 residents, this comes out
to one psychic reader available for every
42,000 persons.
That's a much lower ratio than for doctors,
lawyers or plumbers. That's a disgrace. A
county that cannot support several hundred
psychic readers is a county filled with persons
who have no concern for the future, space
aliens, dream analysis, the welfare of their
dead loved ones or for where local murder vic-
tims may be buried. Psychics are interested in
all these vital issues and more.
Psychic readers vary in their skills and
honesty. A good one can shake hands with
you, ask your first name, and then tell you all
sorts of facts about your past and present.
However, a phony psychic will ask you lead-
ing questions, such as "Is there someone in
your family named Gwendolyn? No? How
about Doris?" In the end you will tell the psy-
chic more about yourself than he/she does.
Other psychics will predict your future.
"You will go on a trip, by car, train or aircraft.
Perhaps on foot. You will meet a suave, smil-
ing man who will ask you to try out a new
bed. His name will be Pierre. He will be a mat-
tress salesman."
My father was psychic. When I was 16, he
told me, "Son, you will never amount to a hill
of beans. Your church will expel you. Women
will scorn you. You will drive a series of Sub-
aru's.





Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


Your hair will turn white. Your knees will
disintegrate. You will write silly essays con-
taining the word 'behoove' more than neces-
sary."
What a guy. After seeing most of these pre-
dictions come true, my father died. I would
ask a psychic to contact him on the Other
Side, but he'd probably refuse to answer the
phone.
The Pinellas psychic readers in the phone
book are mostly women Cynthia, Angela,
Stephanie, Doreena, Pauline, and so forth.
This is because women are more sensitive
than men, from birth onward. They weep eas-
ily. They love kittens and babies. They can tell
when their boy friends or husbands are lying
to them. By the time a woman reaches age
30, her psychic intuition is tuned up like one
of Yo-Yo Ma's cello strings.
Male psychics are rare. Who in their right
mind would pay good money to a psychic
reader named Bubba? Or Chester? Admitted-
ly, the late Edgar Cayce was an esteemed psy-
chic, at least when it came to diagnosing
physical ailments like hyphenated stomach
fissures. Cayce never charged for his read-
ings.
Most psychics do, however. If I ever get a
few hundred bucks saved, I plan to visit five
or six psychic readers all on the same day. It


will be fun to see if they agree on who I am,
what is my future, and did any of them know
about that naughty game Millie Zellquist and
I used to play in her father's attic. If all the
psychics agree on these things, then I'll be-
come a true believer. If they don't I'll return to
my present attitude, which is that of benevo-
lent skepticism.
Despite that mindset, I'd still feel more at
ease if Pinellas County could increase its total
number of psychic readers. We must attract
more of them here, and urge them to settle.
But first we must attract a larger customer
base of persons who might be described as
flaky, oddball, eccentric, balmy, sensitive, off-
center or (at the least) open-minded. This has
been accomplished in Sedona, Ariz., Taos,
N.M., and a few other places. Why can't we do
it here?
An alternative would be to persuade exist-
ing residents of Pinellas to become enamored
of psychic readings. Now that the midterm
elections are over, I'm sure there are many
political fanatics from far left to far right -
who are feeling empty and directionless. They
should be sitting ducks for a charismatic psy-
chic reader to recruit.
A third idea is for us to start a college to
teach local residents how to become a psychic
reader. All around us are for-profit schools
training folks to become dental technicians,
chefs and private investigators. So why not
psychics? All an applicant would need is a
dreamy disposition, a high degree of sug-
gestibility and maybe an Irish aunt who could
hear dead children singing "Galway Bay." Is
that asking much?

The time is now for leadership


Dr. Johnson famously said, "When a man
knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it con-
centrates his mind wonderfully." Those of us in
leadership positions with transit-oriented
agencies and committees on both sides of the
bay understand that our bus systems are
slowly strangling due to declining revenue
sources, a situation primarily attributable to
our reliance on property taxes for operating
funds.
The fact that both the Pinellas Suncoast
Transit Authority and Hillsborough Area Re-
gional Transportation Authority cannot provide
service adequate to the needs of a major
metropolitan area no matter how efficiently
and enthusiastically these agencies conduct
their business with the resources currently at
hand points to a bigger issue of stagnation
that plagues the Tampa Bay region. To put it
bluntly, unless we work diligently to create a
truly modem, multi-faceted transportation sys-
tem for the benefit of the citizens (and tourists)
of this region, we will see the area slide into
second rate status, and we will become known,
for all intents and purposes, as a metropolitan
backwater.
Our business community understands this
intuitively, for it knows that a dynamic econo-
my, in today's steeply competitive climate,
must depend on the backbone provided by a
variety of transportation options. To simply
close our eyes to this reality will not make it go
away. For the younger generation, quality of life
goes hand in hand with quality of transporta-
tion, yet the importance of this fact is somehow
eluding us, or at least we are not adequately re-
sponding to this growing need.
The defeat of the Hillsborough transportation
ballot proposal is only a temporary setback,
and may in fact be a blessing in disguise if it
leads to a revised plan that will be embraced by
the majority of the electorate the next time
around and I believe that there must be a
next time and a next opportunity for our lead-
ers to do their duty by their communities. It is
up to these leaders to mold plans with input

As I See It
R.B. Johnson


from a wide variety of community sources -
that will provide the desired forms of trans-
portation for our region deep into the century.
Pinellas County has been working on a new
vision for transit that features light rail and a
vastly expanded bus system. A crucial aspect
of this vision is the linking of our system (both
rail and bus) with those of adjoining counties. I
have no doubt whatsoever that we in Pinellas
will continue our efforts with the goal of asking
the voters to approve a proposal that is de-
tailed and comprehensive in scope and one
that will provide a map for future transporta-
tion improvements (including roads, sidewalks
and biking trails) in every comer of the county.
When will voters finally see this on their bal-
lots? The most likely date will be in the fall of
2012, because by then the Alternatives Analy-
sis the project at the center of our planning
process will have been long completed, and
its conclusions thoroughly integrated into our
new plan. If at that time Hillsborough County
is also ready, we will have an excellent oppor-
tunity to coordinate the formulation of these
proposals with the support of the Tampa Bay
Area Regional Transportation Authority with
whom the PSTA, the Pinellas Metropolitan
Planning Organization and Florida Department
of Transportation are already partnering on
our Alternatives Analysis. This partnership, by
the way, has earned us plaudits from the Fed-
eral Transit Administration for unprecedented
and innovative regional planning. If the econo-
my is finally showing signs of strengthening in
the period leading up to 2012, there will be no
reason why we should not bring our proposals
to the electorate two years from now. I believe


that Pinellas and Hillsborough counties going
forward simultaneously opens up regional
planning possibilities that will both help gamer
funding support from the Federal Transit Ad-
ministration and capture the imagination and
enthusiasm of voters on both sides of the bay.
The bottom line is that we cannot simply
wave a magic wand and expect our trans-
portation system to suddenly and providen-
tially improve. Transportation is an
investment, and we will not achieve a signifi-
cant return for the community as a whole un-
less the pump is adequately primed. And that
means money, enough of it to build and oper-
ate a substantially larger and more varied sys-
tem across the region than we have -
unfortunately gotten used to seeing. I am a
supporter of the notion that tax reform (via a
swap of the PSTA millage for a sales tax,
which would lighten the load on property own-
ers) is better than merely adding one tax to
another. At 1 cent, the revenue that this sales
tax would generate would build a transit sys-
tem in Pinellas County exponentially better
than what we have now, but without it there
is no hope of any substantial improvement be-
cause of the relative meagerness of other po-
tential funding sources. There's no need to
sugarcoat here: Only greater funding leads to
greater service.
If there was ever a time for bold and deter-
mined leadership in Pinellas County, that time
is now. We do not have to consign our com-
munity to a state of gradual and perpetual de-
cline, but that is what we will be doing if we
neglect to address, in a serious manner, our
future transportation needs. Take it from
someone who understands transit from the
inside out: The crisis is here. I urge our lead-
ers, in all sectors of our community to step
forward and illustrate by their actions the
truth of the old adage, that crisis brings out
the best in the best.
R.B. Johnson is chairman of the Pinellas
Suncoast Transit Authority and is mayor of In-
dian Rocks Beach.

living, and I don't want any stinking flowers sit-
ting on top of me.
Forgive my rant, but death has been on my
mind lately.
You see, today is the day that the last of the
great cheapskates is finally going to march down
the street and see somebody about getting a will
and a living will. I also need to fill out other pa-
perwork to make sure my 1966 football cards
don't fall into the wrong hands.
How do you go about getting your bucket list
approved? Have to do that, too.
My dear mom has scolded me for years about
my failure to look after my estate. She doesn't
want the government to rob me when I'm gone.
Actually, I'm not concerned much about what
people do to my estate; I'm more concerned
about what they do to me.
First of all, I don't want an open-casket funer-
al. To me, it's an atavistic custom. Just the


Tom
Germond


thought of lying in a crate while people say
things about me and stare at my pallid face gives
me the willies.
'Tom looks dead."
"He sure does."
"Dead as a doorknob."
"Did that cheap #X$! ever get around to get-
ting a will?"
"Yup. Didn't leave anybody with a dime. Gave
it all to the University of Florida."
"For scholarships?"
"Nope to help buy out the head coaches' con-
tracts if they lose more than three games in a
season."


I'm also worried what some juvenile delinquent
will do to me while I'm lying helplessly in a cas-
ket such as put a set of fake vampire teeth in
my mouth. Or sneak a cell phone in my pocket
and dial the number.
I don't want to have a funeral, period. Too
much wailing, too much ceremony, even though
I know funeral homes do everything they can to
make families comfortable.
For instance, years ago a funeral home in Cen-
tral Florida took the departed's family to the
cemetery in a recreational vehicle.
We talked about it in the newsroom.
"Who's going to do the story on the new RV at
the funeral home?"
"Germond is. Said something about going for a
ride in the deathmobile."
Mardi gras, it wasn't.
When I die, I don't want anybody to waste any
money on flowers, unless you want to send them
to a fan of a team that the Florida Gators beat.
Funny, too, what people ask for in lieu of flow-
ers. A good friend died after suffering from a


long, painful bout of cancer several years ago. He
was only 48. Never sure how he died, but I have
a hunch.
He asked that in lieu of flowers, donations
should be made to the Hemlock Society. Don't
put me in an urn, either. That's boring. Make it a
beer stein.
Epitaphs? The only one I've ever liked is on a
Key West gravestone "I told you I was sick."
I guess I want my ashes scattered over the sea.
But I have some reservations about that, too. I
don't want to be part of a remake of a scene in
the "Big Lebowski." At the end of the movie, Wal-
ter Sobchak tries to scatter the ashes of the poor
Donny Kerabatsos over the Pacific Ocean and
the ashes got caught in the wind and hit Jeffry
Lebowski square in the face.
Be gentle with me.
T-minus one hour and counting until I see
what it costs to get a will and other documents
prepared. Should be able to save some money.
I have a beer stein.


So long to one of Major League Baseball's good guys


By now, most of us have read quite a bit about
the life and career of former Major League Baseball
manager Sparky Anderson.
But probably not enough could ever be written.
George "Sparky" Anderson, who died last week at
the age of 76, was one of the dynamic personalities
in baseball from the early 1970s through the late
1980s. His persona was evident early on as manag-
er of the Cincinnati Reds when he directed the Big
Red Machine to back-to-back World Series titles in
1975-76, and later when he skippered the Detroit
Tigers to a five-game sweep of San Diego in the
1984 World Series.
The Hall of Famer with the trademark white hair
was simply a winner. He was the first manager to
win World Series titles in both the American and
National leagues and in the process won 2,194
games over a 27-year career as a manager.
Sparky was one of the good guys in baseball. I
was fortunate enough to get to know him as a
young writer a few years back covering the Tigers in
spring training.
It was easy to spend hours in his office following a


meaningless spring exhibition game an
his brain.
Sparky loved baseball and never lef
until the last writer was gone. He love
and loved to talk about it.
His laid-back demeanor worked wonder
clubs he managed. But it was his wit an
earth style that pulled people in like a
one-liners were about as good as Yog
Casey Stengel.
Some of them included:
"Me carrying a briefcase is like a hot
earrings."
"I've got my faults but living in the pa


of them. There's no future in it."
"Losing hurts twice as bad as winning feels
Bob good."
McClure Fortunately for Sparky and the teams he man-
aged, the wins far outnumbered the losses.
He was a brilliant manager who got the most out
of his players and earned the nickname "Captain
Hook" for his quick changes of starting pitchers.
Sparky was almost like a father to many of his
id just pick players and quickly gained their respect if they did-
n't already have it.
ft his office Each spring, he created a stir by anointing a
d the game young rookie as the next Mickey Mantle or the next
Bobby Murcer. His predictions never came to pass
ers with the but they gave writers something to write about. It
nd down-to- put a little added spin into the spring.
magnet. His An otherwise boring spring training always had a
gi Berra or few extra wrinkles, thanks to the commentary of
Sparky.
I recall one particular year when Sparky showed
dog wearing up and there wasn't a future star on his radar
screen. Instead, Anderson spent the better part of
ast isn't one two or three hours talking about how his wife made


him paint his home in California during the offsea-
son and the calamities that went with it.
You had to be there to get the full effect of
Sparky's dissertation because Sparky was just a
regular guy in a baseball uniform. He was like your
next-door neighbor. You just felt like you could con-
fide in him but at the same time he was very enter-
taining.
Anderson was truly a leader but he did it without
a strong command of the English language.
He once told Sports Illustrated, "I truly don't
know the language. I wish I could know the differ-
ence between a noun and a pronoun and an adverb
and a verb, but I don't know. And you know, I don't
want to know. Why do you have to know English?"
Sparky didn't need it. When it came to communi-
cation, he was among the best with giving umpires
a piece of his mind. But he seldom, if ever, dis-
played that type of image to his players.
He was humble and always said he won games
because he had good players.
Sparky Anderson was a character a good char-
acter. Baseball will miss him.

Last year's winter may still haunt local dolphins


One picturesque fall day, we
were cruising around the last
stop on our survey route. We had
seen only four dolphins. This
final bay seemed empty.
It meant we probably wouldn't
reach the average number of dol-
phins for fall surveys, which is
about a dozen. Most of the fall
surveys this year had been like
this.
At the last moment, we
glimpsed a distant flip of a fin at
the edge of the study area (which
is contiguous with other bays

and watery by-ways). By the time
we got there, it and a second
fleeting fin were heading out of
the study area. We followed bulls
Scrapefin and Hi W Ski, who fol-

The boys dropped back. Face

Suddenly Face's silhouette

like a man shot out of a cannon.
Then she launched skyward and

prising to see on hoofed stock
mothers. But it is very surprising
to see on streamlined dolphins.
Face's full milk bags bespoke
of the age-old physical generosity
of mother mammals to their de-
pendent young. But the need of
mother dolphins like Face to pro-
vide baby food also whispered
warnings about the coming win-
ter.
For example, dolphin numbers
are down this year. There haven't
been so few dolphins since 2006,
the first year of construction of
our gleaming new John's Pass
Causeway.
Last winter may be one reason
why there are fewer dolphins this
year. Water temperatures were
nearly 20 degrees F. below nor-
mal for nearly a month, and the
resultant fish kill was consider-
able. If dolphin abundance is a
reflection of the amount of avail-
able food, we might speculate
that lower dolphin numbers re-
flect fewer fish to eat.
However, further clues suggest

that last winter may still be
haunting our locals.
The dolphins are thinner than
usual. You can tell when a dol-
phin is thin by the severity of the
ridging of the "backbone" just be-
hind the dorsal fin. A well-padded
dolphin has little ridging. An
emaciated dolphin has the most
severe ridging.
Ridging has to be seen in con-
text, though, because dolphin
girth changes naturally across
the seasons. Dolphins are "thin"
in summer and "fat" in winter.
Our local dolphins tend to be-
come thin in the summer be-
cause the seas get so warm (into
the upper 80-degree range, which
is why swimming is so great). In
contrast, consider the chilly wa-
ters off southern California,
which barely reach into the 70s
in the summertime.
In the fall, local dolphins start
to gain weight to bulk up for the
winter, which we can track by
changes in individual slender-
ness. This isn't surprising; fall is
the time when mammals feed fu-
riously to gain the weight they
need to get them through the
winter. But our locals never
achieve the remarkable size and
girth of bottlenose dolphins in the

coldest waters, such as the giants
who swim off Scotland.
If our impression that local dol-
phins were thinner than usual is
true, and lowered abundance in-
dicates that there are fewer food
fish for the dolphins, this could
bode ill for the up-coming winter.
In addition, the few dolphins
dotting the study area have
switched to unusual feeding
styles. They are either using new
techniques or enhancing classic
techniques with splashy new be-
haviors.
For example, some of the dol-
phins have started "bubbling",
sending out a shot of water or
sound ahead of them while they
hunt. Such shots can be used to
scare or stun fish to make them
easier to catch. Other dolphins
have begun hunting around pil-
ings or under docks, both unusu-
al feeding styles.
It goes without saying that na-
ture marches on bravely despite
adversity. We'll track the girth of
new mother dolphins Face, NF,
and Courtney in particular and
all the other dolphins in general,
and hope for the best. Wouldn't it
be ironic if the highly anticipated
government trimming was paral-
leled at sea?

Celebrating the Annual Kirkin o'the Tartans
Sunday, Nov. 14 10 a.m.
Pipes & Drums, Scottish Refreshments & Hospitality
he modern KIRKIN O' TH' TARTAN,
although established in North America,
Sis based on an old Highland tradition.
After the defeat of the Scots by the English in
1746, the wearing of the tartan and the
Sweeping of any Highland ways or culture were
forbidden in hope that this would forever
subdue the rebellious Scottish spirit. However,
the Scots were fervent Christians, and canny as
well. They clung to their ancient traditions by
putting them underground, so to speak. The
people went to church wearing a concealed
piece of tartan and at a certain moment set
aside in the service, the tartan was touched
while the minister pronounced a blessing on all in attendance
and the Scots once more pledged their loyalty and respect for
their old traditions and their faith. 111110

The morning national news program, "Daybreak," has a new producer, Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams), who must contend with the show
host Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) in Paramount Pictures' comedy "Morning Glory."



Opening this week

Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams star in 'Morning Glory'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Morning Glory'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, Jeff Gold-
blum and Patrick Wilson
Director: Roger Michell
Rated: PG-13
Local news producer Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams) has finally
landed her dream job in the big city taking the reigns of the national
morning news show "Daybreak" in New York.
However, from day one, the dream threatens to become a nightmare.
She's got all the spunk, grit and skills a girl could ever need for suc-
cess but one huge obstacle stands between Becky and her rise to the
top: the legendary Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), the cranky, cocky,
completely uncooperative anchorman who is about to become her
biggest curse ... and her only hope for turning around the fate of the
last-place morning news program in America.
When Becky arrives at "Daybreak," even the network has given up
on the desperately downward-trending show, which has a reputation
for eating up and spitting out even the most seasoned producers be-
fore the sun even rises. Even though she doesn't have any national
news experience, Becky is determined that she will be different. Setting
in motion a hilarious battle of wits, she decides to try something new:
merging the gruff, self-serious style of former evening newsman
Pomeroy with the babbling banter and diva-esque confidence of long-
time morning host Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton).
It has all the makings of a major disaster as egos clash and
Pomeroy purports to be above doing any weather, celebrity gossip or,
heaven forbid, cooking and soon Becky is struggling to save her rep-
utation, her job, and the blossoming romance with a fellow producer
(Patrick Wilson) she thought she'd never find. Yet, the more Becky
faces off with the cynical and the jaded, the more she begins to believe
in herself, and in the potential for "Daybreak." The result is a smart,
sexy comedy about a working girl's first taste of triumph, as she dis-
covers that no matter how impossible the people might seem to be ...

Horoscopes
November 11, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Go ahead, Capricorn, and
raise a fuss at home. That is the
only way you are going to get
anything done. A small risk pays
off in a big way.

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
You can salvage a project, but
it will take work, Aquarius. Don't
take a stab at it unless you are
willing to put in the time. A
health concern resurfaces.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
Your ego takes a beating this
week, but you're tough and re-
bound with ease. A home im-
provement project turns out
beautifully. Good job, Pisces.

Aries
March 21 -April 19
Personal conflict cannot be
avoided. Be rational and realistic,
Aries, and you just might learn a
thing or two. Travel plans get un-
derway. Bon voyage!

Taurus
April 20 May 20
If you aren't careful, Taurus,
you could get bogged down
in the details and miss out on
the big picture. Your finances
improve with the tiniest of
changes.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
Stop it, Gemini. You have
placed the happiness of others
above your own for far too long.
Focus on yourself for a change. A
truce is reached at home.

Cancer
June 22 July 22
Pipe down, Cancer. Something
is on your mind, but before you
say anything more, make sure
you have your facts straight. You
don't want to make a serious
error.

Leo
July 23 -August 22
While actions typically speak
louder than words, that is not
the case this week, Leo. Speak
up and make your opinions
known. A deadline is extended.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
Old haunts call out to you to
explore them. Go forth with zeal,
Virgo. There are old memories to
revisit and new ones to make. A
gift arrives.

Libra
September 23 October 22
You receive the support of sev-
eral influential people. Put it to
good use, Libra. A letter packs a
lot of punch. Learn from the ex-
ample set by a loved one.

Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You reap the rewards of your
good deeds and hard work this
week. Enjoy the accolades, Scor-
pio. A peek into your financial
standing reveals an unsightly
error.

Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
Work now, Sagittarius, and
relax later. A deadline is moved
up, and you must scramble to
meet it. An old family friend
doles out some much-needed ad-
vice.

Celtic customs come alive

Dunedin's annual Celtic Festival benefits city's Scottish bands


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

DUNEDIN -The Dunedin Celtic
Festival is Saturday, Nov. 20, noon
to 9:30 p.m., at Highlander Park,
Dunedin Community Center, 1920
Pinehurst Road.
Amid a swirl of tartans, attendees
will hear plenty of Celtic tunes while
sampling traditional a variety of
food and browsing the wares of
craft vendors in the shade beneath
the oak trees. The family-friendly
annual event will include both an
afternoon and evening show with
each band performing two sets dur-
ing the course of the day.
This year's featured Celtic rock
bands will include Seven Nations,
Rathkeltair and Brother.
Members of Seven Nations pride
themselves on the fact that they are
"not your father's Celtic band," as
the group's website states.
Seven Nations is known for a
passionate, tender and rollicking
style that encompasses everything
from roots and traditional folk to
dance and fusion-rock. The band is
also famous for a relentless touring
schedule, sometimes spending
more than 300 days a year on the
road.
Touring full-time since 1994,
Seven Nations has performed in


Europe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and
virtually every state in the United
States. They performed an entire
show with the Columbus Sympho-
ny Orchestra at the Dublin Irish
Festival as well as performing at the
Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City,
a New Year's Eve concert at Scot-
land's Royal Mile and at the New
York City Marathon.
The name Seven Nations refers to
the seven nations of the Celtic
world, now known as Scotland, Ire-
land, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, the
Isle of Man and Gallaecia.
Based in Jacksonville Beach,
Rathkeltair is another full-time
Celtic touring band.
The core members of the band
include three formidable multi-in-
strumentalists from Ireland, Eng-
land and America, including Neil
Anderson, bagpipes, whistles and
vocals; Trevor Tanner, vocals and
guitars; and Nick Watson, drums,
percussion and vocals. Watson is a
native of Killyleagh, County Down,
Northern Ireland. Tanner was born
and raised in London, England.
That makes Anderson the Ameri-
can: In fact, Anderson was a found-
ing member of Seven Nations and is
considered a pioneer in the genre of
"kilt-rock"
Rathkeltair combines a rare abili-


ty to play authentic Celtic music to
the highest standards with a pop
sensibility that makes their music
completely accessible to all ages.
Fusing signature vocals and gui-
tar with the deep pulse of the
didgeridoo, the soaring highs of the
bagpipes and tribal percussion,
Brother is truly a unique power-
house in the industry.
The Australian band's live per-
formances are described as an en-
ergetic celebration, captivating and
engaging audience members from
the first song to the last. They have
shared the stage with Joe Walsh,
John Entwhistle, Linkin Park and
Alicia Keys. They are the only inde-
pendent band to have played the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
According to the group's website,


Ct
%~;$ h~


Ever


Brother has self-released a dozen
albums and sold more CDs in the
United States than other independ-
ent Australian act. The band fea-
tures founding member Angus
Richardson along with Dave
"Dalbo" Allen and Drew Reid.
Also performing will be Highland
and Irish dancers as well as the
Dunedin High School Scottish
Highlanders, Dunedin Highland
Middle School Band and the City of
Dunedin Pipe Band.
Admission is free. Parking will
cost $10. Coolers, pets, beach um-
brellas and pop-up tents will not be
permitted in the park.
The Celtic Festival is a benefit
concert for Dunedin's Scottish
bands. The festival is promoted, or-
ganized, managed and operated by

port of his 14th studio album,
"Black Swans and Wormhole Wiz-
ards," produced and recorded by
Mike Fraser and Satriani. Satriani
is joined by former bandmate Jeff
Campitelli as well as newcomers,
keyboardist Mike Keneally and
bassist Allen Whitman. Satriani's
classic sound is accompanied by a
surprisingly rich texture of new
material as well. Over the last two
decades, Satriani has traveled the
world, playing to sold-out crowds
as both a headliner and as founder
of the all-star "G3" guitar extrava-
ganza. As one of the world's most
renowned instrumental artists, Sa-
triani recorded "Live in Paris: I Just
Wanna Rock!" in 2008 at The
Grand Rex Theater in Paris,
France. The live two-disc CD and
DVD was released in February
2010 through Epic Records and
contained such memorable songs
as "Surfing With The Alien," "Flying
in a Blue Dream," "Super Colossal"
and "I Just Wanna Rock." In 2009,
Satriani joined with former Van
Halen front man Sammy Hagar,
former bassist Michael Anthony
and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drum-
mer Chad Smith, to form the
stand-out rock collaboration,
Chickenfoot. After a highly success-
ful U.S. tour, their self-titled debut
album was certified gold by the
Recording Industry Association of
America with over 500,000 in
album shipments.

Beacon, November 11,2010


Led Zeppelin Experience comes to Ruth Eckerd Hall


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
CLEARWATER Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience will cele-
brate the music of this iconic English rock band in a performance
Sunday, Nov. 14, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth
Road, Clearwater.
Ticket prices range from $32.50 to $59.50. Call 791-7400 or visit
www.rutheckerdhall.com.
For classic rock enthusiasts, the name Led Zeppelin immediately
calls to mind Robert Plant's soulful, wailing vocals; Jimmy Page's siz-
zling, inventive guitar work; as well as John Paul Jones' talented bass
playing and John Bonham's thunderous percussion.
The band is considered a pioneer in heavy metal and hard rock.
Best known for their innovative and influential approach to heavy
blues-rock, Led Zeppelin cut eight studio albums. A ninth album,
"Coda," was released after the group disbanded and featured a collec-
tion of outtakes from sessions recorded during the band's 12-year ca-
reer which ran from 1968 to 1980.
A number of Led Zeppelin tribute bands have surfaced since the
1980s, reproducing the sounds and images that made the band so
memorable. This concert, though, is much more than just a standard
tribute band playing a collection of greatest hits.
Jason Bonham is the son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John
Bonham.
For Jason a renowned kitman in his own right who performed as
part of Led Zeppelin during the band's historic, heralded December
2007 reunion show in London this tour is more than just an an op-
portunity to pay tribute to the pioneering hard rock foursome.
JBLZE is billed as "a unique and deeply personal reflection of
Jason's life with the music of Led Zeppelin and how it influenced him."
"Since the 02 Arena show in 2007 with Jimmy, John Paul and
Robert, I've been thinking about doing something like this," Bonham
explains in his biography, supplied by the Mitch Schneider Organiza-
tion. "I knew if I did decide to go forward with it, I wanted to make it
count. I went and saw the Beatles tribute 'Rain' and it opened up a
new avenue for me of using home movies and now, there's even a part
where I'm playing with Dad in our show, where we play off of each
other. I wanted to make it a bit more than just a rock concert. So I
have a section where there's some storytelling and some insightful his-
tory to accompany the music."
The tour is timed to take place just after the 30th anniversary of his
father John Bonham's passing. John died Sept. 24, 1980. Following


Jason Bonham presents his Led Leppelin Experience Nov. 14 at Kuth
Eckerd Hall.

his untimely death, the remaining members of Led Zeppelin chose to
disband a decision made official in a press statement dated Dec. 4,
1980.
What can concertgoers expect to see and hear at this show?
Jason will be joined on stage by his band, which features guitarist
Tony Catania, vocalist James Dylan, bassist Michael Devin and key-
boardist/pedal-steel guitarist Stephen LeBlanc. Together, they will
rock through Led Zeppelin's hallowed catalog on a state-of-the-art
sound system. The accompanying light show will bring their live per-
formance onstage to an atmospheric level creating a stunning multi-
media concert.
Giant screens will display art and Bonham's own historical video
footage and photos will set the mood. The band's powerful live per-
formance of Led Zeppelin's classics will take concertgoers through a
personal journey of Jason's past with the unforgettable blues-rock of
Led Zeppelin.
Jason has teamed with Annerin Productions, the company behind
The Pink Floyd Experience and Rain, a Tribute to the Beatles. He did-
n't anticipate that putting on such a spectacle would evoke such a
flood of thoughts and emotions. He realized early on that he would
need to narrate the storytelling part of the show separately.
"Just telling a couple of the stories, I got choked," he says. "I don't
want to do that every night and be an emotional wreck each night. So
I'm going to record the storytelling part of the show so that I can focus
on what I want to do. Because it is so personal in so many parts."

Beacon, November 11,2010


OPENING, from page 1B
Once outdoors, a terrifying extraterrestrial force be-
gins to swallow the entire human population off the
face of the Earth. In a matter of hours, we will all be
gone.
Jarrod (Eric Balfour) and Elaine's (Scottie Thomp-
son) trip to Southern California was supposed to be a
simple weekend away to visit Jarrod's best friend, Terry
(Donald Faison) and Terry's girlfriend, Candice (Brit-
tany Daniel), for his birthday.
But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the
form of a haunting light from an unknown source, life
as they know it is finished. As they watch in terror
from Terry's penthouse windows, people across the city
are drawn outside and swallowed into massive alien
ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline.
Now, it will take every survival instinct they have to
elude capture from the thousands of monstrous crea-
tures that are sweeping the city and searching for all
humans in their path. From tankers to drones and
hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable
and seemingly indestructible. In the sci-fi thriller Sky-
line, the end of the world has come ... and it's just out-
side the window.

'Unstoppable'
Genre: Action, adventure and drama
Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Daw-
son, Kevin Dunn and Kevin Chapman
Director: Tony Scott
Rated: PG-13


Imagine: There's a million tons of steel speeding
along a railroad track, the lives of 100,000 people are
at risk... and impact is expected in 100 minutes.
A veteran engineer (Denzel Washington) and a young
conductor (Chris Pine) try frantically to stop a half-
mile-long freight train carrying enough combustible liq-
uids and poisonous gas to wipe out a nearby city.
Inspired by actual events, "Unstoppable" is an
adrenaline rush fueled by director Tony Scott's signa-
ture mark of propulsive action rooted in the reality of
ordinary people placed in extraordinary circumstances.
The following will open in limited release. It may be
several weeks before these films appear in local movie
theaters.
'Cool It'
Genre: Documentary
Director: Ondi Timoner
Climate catastrophe? The end of civilization as we
know it?
"Cool It" is based upon the book of the same name
and lectures by Bjom Lomborg, the controversial au-
thor of "The Skeptical Environmentalist." Award-win-
ning filmmaker Ondi Timoner travels the world with
Lomborg exploring the real facts and true science of
global warming and its impact. Lomborg is the founder
and director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, a
globally respected think tank that brings together the
world's leading economists to prioritize major global
problems among them malaria, the lack of potable
water and HIV/AIDS based upon a cost/benefit anal-


ysis of available solutions.
Amidst the strong and polarized opinions within the
global waning debate, "Cool It" follows Lomborg on
his mission to bring the smartest solutions to climate
change, environmental pollution, and other major
problems in the world.
'Tiny Furniture'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Lena Dunham, Laurie Simmons, Grace
Dunham, Rachel Howe and Merritt Wever
Director: Lena Dunham
Not rated
Winner of the best narrative feature at the SXSW
Film Festival, Tiny Furniture" is an endearing film
that explores the depths of romantic humiliation
and the heights of post-college confusion.
Writer/director/star Lena Dunham is being
called one of the most exciting new voices in Ameri-
can independent cinema and critics are hailing her
film as "irresistibly funny", "unnervingly honest"
and "near perfection." "Tiny Furniture" also stars
Dunham's real-life sister, Grace, and real-life moth-
er, Laurie Simmons, the celebrated artist and pho-
tographer.
When 22-year-old Aura (Dunham) returns home
to her artist mother's TriBeCa loft, she carries with
her a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her
Youtube page, a boyfriend who's left her to find him-
self at Burning Man, a dying hamster and her tail
between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood
best friend never left home, the restaurant down the

in "Tiny Furniture," directed by Lena Dunham.
block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities
lurk around every comer. Surrounded on all sides
by what she could become, Aura just wants some-
one to tell her who she is.
