SEMINOLE The city and Suncoast Chrysler Jeep
Dodge are close to a win-win situation on negotiations in-
volving signage for the car dealership at 8755 Park Blvd.
The City Council voted unanimously Nov. 9 to give pre-
liminary approval to a development agreement between
the city and Schmidt Family Enterprises, allowing new sig-
nage in connection to a major renovation.
Specifically, the agreement allows Suncoast to erect sig-
nage on its building with the names of the Chrysler,
Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands, which are larger than what
the city's sign code allows.
To receive approval by the city, Suncoast agreed to
downsize the size of a free standing sign to comply with
the city's current code.
The free standing sign, which was originally designed to
be 128 square feet and nearly 27 feet in height, will now
be 85 square feet and 20 feet high.
City Manager Frank Edmunds explained that the deal-
ership had very little flexibility to negotiate the building
signage since that is signage required by Chrysler Corp.

Treasure Island couple brings expertise to Sanding Ov
By BOB McCLURE
TREASURE ISLAND When Treasure Island Recreation
Director Cathy Hayduke called, it didn't take Meredith Cor-
son and Dan Doubleday long to organize the first Sanding
Ovations event a year ago.
The inaugural sand sculpting competition drew a field of
eight sculptors from around the world and the admiration
of thousands who saw their work.
This weekend, the second annual Sanding Ovations will
take place on the beach behind the Bilmar Beach Resort
with many of the same artists competing again for more
than $10,000 in cash prizes.
They include Doubleday, a transplanted Californian now
living in Treasure Island; two-time world solo champion
Carl Jara of Cleveland, three-time world champion Karen
Fralich of Toronto, Benjamin Probanza of Acapulco, Mexi-
co; Chris Guinto of Key West, Rusty Croft of Park City,
Utah; Lucinda Wierenga of South Padre Island, Texas; and
Dan Belcher, a 13-time world champion from St. Louis.
Corson, who works on the organizational end of the
event, and Marianne van den Broek of Key West are non-
competing sponsor sculptors.
The event kicks off Thursday, Nov. 18 and continues
through Sunday, Nov. 21. A nonstop flow of live music will
complement the artists' work Friday through Sunday on
The competing sculptors will begin their work Thursday
and finish Saturday at 3 p.m. when judging will take place.
'The judges are the sculptors and they don't judge them-
selves," Corson explained. 'We use a compilation of num-
bers that average out and everyone usually agrees."
'They (the sculptors) know the medium," said Double-

ty of carving, finish, artistic impression and the "wow" fac-
Last year's event wowed plenty of patrons who saw the
It all came about with about five months' notice after
Corson and Doubleday got a call from Hayduke to say the
inaugural event which Doubleday and Corson had
pitched to the city finally had a major sponsor. Thanks to
a large infusion of money from Anheuser-Busch, the first
event took off quite smoothly.
'They (Anheuser-Busch) were looking for a beach event
to promote Landshark and Bud Light Lime," said Corson.
"Once we got them, the Bilmar and Sloppy Joe's jumped on
board immediately. So did Island Inn."
Their goal is to turn it into one of the premier sculpting
contests in the nation and ultimately an event that people
will plan their vacations around.

No variances are allowed in the size and style.
Councilor Patricia Plantamura asked if the variance on
the free standing signage was outside what any other
business owner in Seminole would have to do.
"No, it's not outside," said Edmunds. "It involves fairly
significant corrections to signage already in place. In this
case, the Schmidt family has made a tremendous effort to
meet the city half way. It's more in line with our new ar-
chitectural guidelines. So we're very happy with the out-
come of the project."

Pinellas Park water, sewer
PINELLAS PARK- In response to the county's re-
cently increased water fees, the Pinellas Park City
Council approved an overall water rate increase of
4.25 percent Oct. 28, a decision that was met with
outrage by several citizens who protested any in-
crease to their utility bills.
"I'm objecting primarily to the rate increase, not
because of me, but because of most of the residents
of Pinellas Park. This is becoming an undue burden
on many of our residents," homeowner Dave Wentz
said. "Our utility bills in the last 10 years our
water, sewer trash have doubled. I don't think
many of our residents have had their incomes dou-
Effective Nov. 1, the overall rate increase amounts
to an average increase of about 26 cents per 1,000
gallons consumed per month, depending on the
bracket of consumption in which the household or
business falls, Utility Billing Director Jimmy Walker
said. The sewer rate increased from $7.16 to $7.46,
amounting to an increase of about 30 cents per
If the city does nothing, given the wholesale water
increases, Pinellas Park will come up short this fis-
"With the proposed rate increase, we're projecting
a break even," Assistant Finance Administrator
Sonny Kotala explained to the council. "Without the
proposed rate increase, we're estimating a shortage
of nearly a million dollars."
The shortage would not only force the city to tap
into is funds meant to be saved for emergency re-
pairs and expansions, but could threaten its credit
rating for bonds it's currently paying back.
Despite the reasoning for increasing the rates,
residents still spoke strongly against the measure,
arguing that they were already struggling to pay the
utility bills as they stood. Resident Joyce Cich said
she was very careful with her water, even using 55-
gallon rain barrels to water her tropical garden by
"And yet, I'm paying more for this water, and I'm
living on a fixed income. It's just unfair," she said.
"In fact, the people in my neighborhood are barely
paying (their utility bills). You have to look around
and see what these people are going though, includ-
ing myself, and it's just getting to be too much."
Aside from the overall increases, Cich's primary
protest was with the minimum rate the city charges.
Another resident also complained that the mini-
mum rate discourages residents from conserving
water if they're already under that base amount of
Councilman Jerry Mullins said the mayor was
working with city staff to decrease that minimum
"Hopefully, we'll come up with something for you
very soon," he said.
The city's rate increase is in direct response to
Pinellas County's 3.5 percent increase to the whole-
sale price of water and the 1.5 percent increase to
the sewer rate. However, the county, and even Pinel-
las Park Mayor Bill Mischler, blamed the increase
on another "bureaucracy" above both governments:
Tampa Bay Water.
"Some things are out of our control, and this is
one of them," Mischler said.
Councilmen Rick Butler pointed out that Pinellas
Park, one of the larger municipalities in Tampa Bay,
has no seat on the Tampa Bay Water board, which
includes representatives of Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsbor-
ough counties, as well as New Port Richey, St. Pe-
tersburg and Tampa.
Still, Wentz, echoing the opinions of others in the
audience, blamed the city for not fighting back
against the increases.
'The problem is not just the increase here, but no
one is going back and objecting to the increases," he
Councilwoman Sandra Bradbury said that the
council members themselves were in the same boat
as the residents protesting the increases.
'We all live here in Pinellas Park. We all get our
water, just like you guys, every day," she said. 'We
do say something to the county; we do voice our
opinion on the rates they're increasing to us. We
don't take it without a fight."
The council argued that their hands were tied,
since increases above them had already been
passed. In order to make up for the estimated
$971,388 the city would be short if no rate increase
had been enacted, the city could have used funds
from its unrestricted net assets, which pays for
emergency repairs and expansions to the city's utili-
ty infrastructure. That account used to amount to
$15 million at the end of 2000, but now boasts $4.2
'That balance has been greatly reduced over the
years. That's primarily due to a declining economy
as well as a desire to keep the rates as low as possi-
ble for the citizens and the business owners," Kotala
Taking out an additional million from the fund
would bring it to $3.2 million, "a dangerously low
amount," Kotala said.
Decreasing that fund had an additional conse-
quence of barring the city from complying with a
2003 water and sewer bond rate agreement.
"If we don't comply and our credit rating sharply
declines, the balance of $9.8 million that's still owed
on the bond issue could be called to come payable
immediately," Kotala said.
The city also argued that Pinellas Park fell right in
the middle of what other billing agents in the county
charged for their water and sewer. The city's rate of
$54.24 for 3,000 gallons of water per month is just
above the county's rate of $53.71, but lower than
similar rates in Tarpon Springs, Madeira Beach,
Dunedin, St. Petersburg, Largo and Clearwater, to
name a few.
Along with the rate increases themselves, the or-
dinance approved last month also updated other
water-related service charges to individual meters,
the most common of which would be a water turn-
on charge. Currently the city charges $5, but in-
creased that fee to $25 and $35 if it's required after
'This charge has not been visited or changed in
many years," Walker said.
The city also will charge $10 if residents or busi-
nesses request their meter be reread, but only if the
first reading was deemed correct.
A number of fees were enacted for services the
city has to perform to repair utility infrastructure.
The city now will charge $100 for the removal of
unauthorized straight pipes, broken locks on curb
stops, the unauthorized use of fire hydrants and no-
tifying tenants that the master meter is about to be
turned off. Previously, the city charged nothing for
those services, except $6.50 for the curb stop bro-
Mischler said he was in favor of increasing those
charges even higher, as offenders cost the rest of the
city time and money with their attempts to avoid
paying for utilities. No motion to that effect was
The council spent almost an hour addressing
residents' protests and questions on the water rate
increase, but in the end, passed the ordinance as
staff had recommended it.
'They didn't listen," an audience member mum-
bled on her way out of the meeting.
Funding of infrastructure
CLEARWATER The Clearwater City Council on
Nov. 4 approved several high-dollar contracts to im-
prove Clearwater's roads, water supply and other
infrastructure. The contracts, which had been thor-
oughly discussed at an earlier work session, were
put on the consent agenda and unanimously ap-
proved without further discussion.
R.E. Purcell Construction, a Largo-based con-
tractor, received a $1,482,700 contract for the
milling and resurfacing of 6.75 miles of streets
which were the subject of citizens' complaints. After
inspection by the city's Public Services, Engineering
Department those streets were moved to the top of
the resurfacing list.
Countryside Boulevard between Belcher Road
and State Road 580 will be resurfaced with 1.5-
inch-thick asphalt, as will Hercules Avenue be-
tween Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Druid Road.
Several less busy streets will be resurfaced with
inch-thick asphalt. The contract calls for the work
to be completed within 90 days.
The City Council members reconfirmed a $1.2
million work order, awarded on Sept. 22, to Camp,
Dresser and McKee, Inc., for engineering, designing
and permitting services related to the construction
of an expansion of Reverse Osmosis Plant 1 for the
city's Water Department. The project will be funded
by a 2009 Water and Sewer Bond issue.
'The goal of this item is to protect the city and
CDM with additional conditions in the contract that
the (original) work order did not capture," a staff
memo to the council said. 'The city of Clearwater's
Public Utilities Department is responsible for own-
ing, operating and maintaining the Reverse Osmo-
sis Plant 1."
In addition to its Reverse Osmosis Plant 1, the
city plans to build a second reverse osmosis plant
at its Water Treatment Plant 2, at 21133 U.S. 19.
The estimated cost of the facility is $30.5 million
with the Southwest Florida Water Management Dis-
trict picking up half the tab. The plant, which will
be owned and operated by Clearwater and will turn
brackish water into drinking water, is expected to
be operational by December 2015.
On Nov. 4, the council awarded a $3,445,449
contact to Reiss Engineering for the preliminary
evaluations, pilot testing, design, permitting and
bidding of the project. The project will include the
design and construction of brackish water well-
fields, the well heads that will provide raw water to
the plant, the mains that will transport it there and
an injection well into which concentrate from the
plant can be pumped.
Clearwater-based Volt Telecom was awarded a
$2,836,091 contract, and URS Corp. received a

saves working waterfront
By WAYNE AYERS
MADEIRA BEACH The controversy continues to
swirl. But the uncertainty over the city's support for
a grant to preserve one of the area's last remaining
working waterfronts is over.
Vice Mayor Terry Lister cast the deciding vote in a
3-2 decision in favor of preserving the Fishbusterz
property at 13613 Gulf Blvd. for fishing-related uses
Fishbusterz owner Eric Dickstein said community
support for the cause has been strong.
"Our overriding focus is the property's preserva-
tion," Dickstein said. "People have come up and ex-
pressed their enthusiasm. It has been
Dickstein added his company is giving up proper-
ty rights to obtain the grant.
Fisherman John Schmidt, who unloads his boats
at Fishbusterz, answered critics who termed the
grant a bailout. He admitted the company, and the
fishing industry, are in a difficult business situation
right now. But regulation changes, which he said
are going to protect the fish resource, will make
things a lot better than before.
"What you see right now is the worst. The indus-
try is going to get better," Schmidt said. 'There are a
lot of good things in the future for this industry."
Resident Bill Mohns also gave his support.
"Our heritage has been fishing," Mohns said.
'This is important for the community."
Former Commissioner Martha Boos said the
property's preservation is needed to preserve the
fishing industry and its impact on the local econo-
"(Fishbusterz) takes the fishing boats in. If we are
going to be the grouper capital of the world, I don't
know how we are going to do it if we don't have any
fish," she said.
Controversy over the $1 million-plus grant and its
terms continued, however.
The owner of a competing fishery, several citizens,
the mayor and one commissioner were opposed.
The owner of Nachman's Native Seafood in neigh-
boring Redington Shores termed the grant a bailout
Tim Nachman said the commission is "showing
its willingness to bail out another failed business."
He noted that Fishbusterz plans to use part of the
grant money to pay its mortgage and taxes.
'This is unfair to competing businesses," he said.
'The government is going to be bailing out a busi-
ness that is not viable."
Commissioner Steve Kochick, a steadfast oppo-
nent of the grant, said its acceptance puts the city
on the hook. "The grant is between the city of
Madeira Beach and the state. Fishbusterz is not
even mentioned in the application," he said. The
fishermen "are not guaranteed anything" from the
grant, Kochick maintained.
Mayor Pat Shontz, who was undecided on the
issue at the last workshop, wound up voting no.
'The citizens will be responsible for this property
forever," she warned. "I want you to think about
that. Forever is a long time."
Turning to Dickstein, Shontz said, "You guys
could get tired of doing that and you could hit the
road." Then, "How will we get someone to come in
and do the same thing?"
Shontz said the situation would be different if the
property was deeded to the city. But right now, ac-
ceptance of the grant "is hanging an awful big rope
around the city of Madeira Beach's neck."
Shontz's opposition failed to sway Commissioners
Nancy Oakley, Carol Reynolds, and Terry Lister,
who were in favor. The proponents won the vote,
though narrowly, and a hearty round of applause
from an audience that included many fishermen
greeted the outcome.
City employees to get bonuses
The commission decided to move ahead with a
year-end bonus payment of $500 to each city em-
ployee. The cost would be $25,000 to $30,000, ac-
cording to city manager W.D. Higginbotham Jr.
The subject had come up at the last workshop
meeting, at which time Higginbotham said he
thought the payment would be coming from contin-
gency funds and would require a vote by the com-
mission. He later determined that the cost would
come from funds set aside in an employee compen-
Oakley had wanted a vote on the matter, which
Higginbotham said was not required.
The bonuses were opposed by Martha Boos, who
said they would cost the city thousands of dollars
and be tax-free, 'which would bump up the amount
per employee substantially."
Boos said the bonuses were unneeded because,
in her view, "every benefit known to mankind is
given to these employees."
The commission voted 3-2 not to place a discus-
sion of the bonuses on the meeting agenda. The
nonaction will allow the payments to be made.
Shontz, Lister and Kochick favored the bonuses,
while Oakley and Reynolds did not.
March elections set
Guidelines for the March 8 elections have been
established. The mayor's seat, currently held by Pat
Shontz, and commissioners in District 3 (Nancy
Oakley) and District 4 (Steve Kochick) are up for
The mayor's term is three years and the commis-
sioners two years. The qualifying period for any of
the positions is Dec. 8 through Jan. 7.
Commissioner Nancy Oakley stated at a recent
meeting that North Redington Beach had replaced
their holiday lighting with banners.
Oakley later corrected that comment, saying Indi-
an Shores is the community using the banners.

Alstott and his wife Nicole were among the VIPs in Soldiers past and present salute the colors as

SANDING OVATIONS, from page 1A
"It's glacial sand from two ice ages ago," said Dou-
bleday. "It's still sharp and has edges that catch.
That's how we get the sculptures."
After sponsor sculptures are completed, each
sculptor gets about 15 tons of sand to work with.
Moving that much sand in a small amount of time
requires a high level of physical strength.
For that reason, Doubleday said sand sculpting is
both sport and art. Competitors must be fast, physi-
cal, competitive and artistic.
Sculptors have 24 hours over a three-day period
to create their works.
'You don't stop to talk much," said Corson. "It's
not unusual to move five to 10 tons of sand in four
to five hours."
Compacting the sand in tiers, the sculptors create
a pyramidal structure up to 12 feet tall. Once com-
plete, the sculptors begin carving from top to bot-

NORTH REDINGTON BEACH There is good
news for residents who want to bring their dogs with
them when they dine out in North Redington Beach.
Town commissioners passed an ordinance on its
first reading at the Nov. 11 town hall meeting per-
taining to procedures allowing patrons' dogs within
certain designated outdoor portions of food service
Restaurants that choose to accommodate dogs
will require a permit that will be good until the busi-
ness changes ownership. The ordinance sets the

2013, and not to exceed $19,200 annually for 2014 and
The resolution in support of the recommendations of
the Joint Land Use and Transportation Committee, in-
cluding amendment to the Pinellas Planning Council's
Special Act was tabled.
After "preliminary review," town attorney James Ya-
cavone noted that there were concerns with the resolu-
tion from other towns, including South Pasadena.
The town council elected to defer the resolution until
more details regarding the concept become available.
The first reading of a proposed ordinance amending
the code to prohibit new discharges into the Intracoastal
Waterway and allowing the town to enter into interlocal
agreements to prevent pollutant discharges was ap-
proved. This ordinance will, for instance, prohibit blow-
ing grass clippings or discharging oil, gas or chlorinated
water over the sea walls into the water.
Former Indian Shores Mayor Ed Murphy was ap-
pointed to Seat 5 on the Board of Adjustment for a
three-year term which will expire on Oct. 28, 2013. Mur-
phy previously served on the Board of Adjustment in
1983 before being elected to serve on the Indian Shores
Town Council (1984-86). Murphy was then elected as
mayor of Indian Shores (1986-1988) and served as the
Indian Shores Commissioner on the Pinellas Suncoast
Fire District (1988-2000).
Mayor James Lawrence presented plaques to two po-
lice officers in recognition of 20 or more years of service
to the town. Sergeant Leo Yates was recognized for 28
years of service and Major Teny Hughes was recognized
for 20 years of service.
New fire Chief Bert Polk was introduced at the meet-
ing. Polk was born and raised in St. Petersburg, gradu-
ated from Eckerd College, served with various fire
departments and retired from the St. Petersburg Police
Department. Polk was among 40 applicants nationwide
that had applied and was ultimately selected by the
Suncoast Fire and Rescue Board.
Town announcements included the Indian Shores Li-
brary book sale on Sunday, Nov. 21 and the scheduling
of this year's boat parade for Saturday, Dec. 18.
The mayor will be cooking a pancake breakfast on the
day of the book sale. The pancake breakfast will cost $5
All proceeds from both the breakfast and book sale
will be in support of the Indian Shores Library and the
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary.
guidelines for the permit "in order to protect the
health, safety and general welfare of the public." The
permit requires that signs be posted on the premis-
es outlining all applicable sanitation procedures,
employee and patron rules.
According to the ordinance, dining establish-
ments with a permit may allow dogs in designated
outdoor seating areas whose owners keep the dogs
leashed at all times. Owners also must keep their
dogs under control, off chairs, tables or other fur-
nishings, and away from serving dishes, utensils,
tableware, linens, paper products or any other items
involved in food service operations.

construction of the Glen Oaks Palmetto Reclaimed Water Project.
'The goal of this and all other reclaimed water projects is to reduce
the amount of potable water and groundwater being used for irriga-
tion and other nonpotable uses," a staff memo told the council. "In ad-
dition, expansion of the Reclaimed Water Distribution System in
accordance with the Reclaimed Water Master Plan brings the city of
Clearwater closer to achieving zero-discharge of effluent to Tampa Bay
and adjacent surface waters."
Construction of the project is expected to take 480 days, ending by
the end of May 2012. URS will be the engineer of record, and Volt will
be responsible for constructing the transmission and distribution
mains in the Glen Oaks Palmetto service area. SWFWMD will pay up
to half the cost.
Cumbey & Fair, Inc., received a $223,402 contract to be the engi-
neer of record on the Myrtle Avenue/Seminole Street North East Out-
fall Improvements Project. The project entails removing or abandoning
in place 2,200 linear feet of deteriorating 36- to 48-inch storm pipe
that runs between houses and replacing it with 2,800 linear feet of
same-size pipe in the public right-of-way.
'The proposed alignment begins at the east side of Myrtle Avenue
on Eldridge Street eastward to Vine Avenue, then eastward to Penn-
sylvania Avenue and terminating at Metto Street," according to a staff
memo. 'The replacement includes the storm drain east of Vine Avenue
on Eldridge Street and east of Vine Avenue on Seminole Street."
In his comments during the commission meeting Thursday, Katica
reported on his sense that the mayors attending the Mayors' Breakfast
Nov. 3 were concerned with Governor-elect Rick Scott's pre-election
vows to lower real estate taxes 19 percent and create 700,000 new
jobs, as well as Scott's stance against the central Florida rapid rail
'rith cities from St. Pete to Clearwater all experiencing tremendous
revenue challenges, and considering how important the rail project is
to Pinellas County, I don't know how he's going to do that," Katica
As for the jobs growth prediction Katica added, "I'm mystified, how
that is going to work. All the mayors are nervous about the new gover-
City building study raises eyebrows
LARGO A building study of Largo's Police Department and City
Hall recommends an estimated $10 million in renovations for long-
range planning purposes.
The total project renovation cost for City Hall was pegged at $7.8
million; construction of a new building was estimated at $11.8 million.
The total renovation project cost for the Police Department building is
'There were two parts of this study part of it was about energy ef-
ficiency and part of it was about fixing the roof," Mayor Pat Gerard
said. "I didn't think it was about totally rehabing the building, but ap-
parently it is."
Though it appears that City Hall is meeting the current space needs
requirements of its departments housed within the building, the study
said, significant work is needed to bring the building into conformance
with current Florida building code requirements for wind-load resist-
ance and minimum energy efficiency standards.
Because of the age of City Hall and the "fact that it was built as not
a government 50-year long-term facility, but as a speculative office
building, basically it just wasn't built to the kind of standards that
we would build a government complex to today," said Paul Portal,
principal architect for Long Associates Architects/Engineers Inc., at
the commission's Nov. 9 work session. City Hall was built in 1972.
'The existing roof is well past its service life," Portal said. 'There's
ongoing water intrusion problems."
Air-conditioning, heating and venting equipment need to be re-
placed along with insulation, the study said.
The Police Department building was constructed in 1975 and ap-
pears to be meeting space needs of the department, but it also has
roofing and insulation problems and water intrusion.
The building has some structural deficiencies but not as difficult to
deal with as City Hall, Portal said.
City officials said the level of work they could do without having to
meet the wind requirements is to put the same type of roof on City
Hall that exists now. That would last for about five to seven years.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said "I don't know about spending
$12 million or $14 million fixing these two buildings up."
If a Category 4 storm came through the area and leveled the build-
ings he preferred that "we eat the deductible on the wind storm and
just rebuild the thing. The kind of money you are talking about here,
we are building a whole community center over there for less money
than this," Holmes said.
"You get to the point of diminishing returns. Do you really want to
spend this kind of money on a 40-year-old building," he said.
Gerard agreed, saying that the city could put millions of dollars into
the building knowing that there was a lot more work that needs to be
Commissioners plan to study information to determine what work
should be done soon and what can wait for several years from now.
They will discuss the report in another work session.
Long and Associates evaluated the facilities based on direct obser-
vation by design professionals and a review of existing drawings and
utility bills. The company conducted interviews with city staff to iden-
tify known deficiencies in energy use and prepared drawings and
three-dimensional building information models.
City Hall is 59,294 square feet; the police department building is
42,534 square feet.
In other matters, commissioners heard a presentation on economic
development marketing efforts.
Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon said one of the crit-
ical tasks the department has undertaken is creating Web pages.
"Web pages are a great way for businesses, relocation of people, any
of those types of individuals who are looking at either expansion and
or relocation into a market they do it quietly. That's how they like to
proceed with looking and analyzing where they want to go, how they
want to grow their businesses," Brydon said.
City commissioners also agreed to name Commissioner Robert
Murray vice mayor for the next year.

Commissioners get update on capital improvement projects
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Public Works and Transporta-
tion Director Pete Yauch presented to Pinellas
County Commissioners Oct. 26 the fall update on
Pinellas County's capital improvement projects for
fiscal years 2011 to 2016.
The commission requested quarterly reports to
help them stay informed due to the shrinking CIP
budget. In addition, a number of bids have been
coming in lower than original estimates.
Yauch said the Keystone Road project, from U.S.
19 to East Lake Road would probably be done early
and at a reduced cost. Construction on the project
to turn the two-lane road into a four-lane with the
ability for expansion to six lanes in the future began
in July and is expected to take 33 months at a cost
of $31.6 million.
Advertisement for bids for the Bryan Dairy Road
project went out Oct. 15, Yauch said. He said the
project included a number of safety improvements,
including expanding the road from four lanes divid-
ed to six lanes divided with sidewalks and bike
lanes on both sides.
The project area is from Starkey Road to 72nd
Street. Bids should be received by Dec. 16. Con-
struction is expected to take 18 to 24 months at a
cost of $16 million. Partial funding is expected to
come from state and federal sources, totaling more
than $8.5 million.
The road project at 46th Avenue North, which in-
cludes improvements for a two- and three-lane
roadway, should be complete by January. The cost
is $9.4 million. The addition of a left turn lane on
54th Avenue and 28th Street also should be done
by January. The project began in February at a cost
of more than $1.6 million. About $800,000 will be
paid by grant funding.
Work on intersection improvements on McMullen
Booth Road began in October. Improvements for the
intersection at Drew Street includes adding south-
bound right, northbound left and eastbound left
turn lanes as well as restricting westbound through
traffic. A northbound right turn lane also is being
constructed on Enterprise Road.
Construction of the intersection improvements,
as well as road resurfacing should be complete by
May. The total cost of the project is more than $2.5
million, and 50 percent will be paid through a grant
from Florida Department of Transportation.
Planned improvements to Park Street and
Starkey Road from Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay
Drive remain on hold due to budget concerns.
Milling and resurfacing will be done as needed.
Three county bridges were included in the up-
date. Beckett Bridge repairs are expected to begin in
May and should take about nine months to com-
plete at a cost of $364,000. Officials estimate that
the bridge will need to be replaced in about 10
Repairs to the Dunedin Causeway Bridge were
completed in July. Yauch said the work was done
on time and on budget. The cost was $1.64 million.
The bridge most likely will need to be replaced after
Work continues to find funding for the demolition
of the Friendship Trail Bridge, which remains closed
due to safety issues. Responsibility for the bridge is
shared by Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.
Yauch said staff was considering two projects.
One involves removing the middle portion of the
bridge due to an ongoing problem of people cutting
through the fence to gain access to the bridge for
'We're looking at a two-step process," Yauch said.
"Eventually we'll demolish the whole thing."
Demolition is expected to cost $13 million to be
shared between the two counties. Pinellas has con-
tributed $2 million, which is leftover money from
the bridge repair fund. Another $4.5 million is re-
quired to pay Pinellas County's share of the demoli-
tion cost and has been added to the CIP budget for
Yauch also covered stormwater and drainage
projects, environmental and parks projects and gov-
ernmental building projects, as well as enterprise
projects and projects ongoing at the St. Petersburg-
One of the biggest ticket items on the CIP is the
public safety facilities and centralized communica-
tion center. Design work on the project is expected
to be complete by September and construction
should begin in October. Estimated construction
cost is $81.4 million.

tree containing the wish list of someone in need. Next, just buy an
item or two and return the gifts unwrapped to the location on the
tag. No gift is too small. Trees are located at Bealls stores in Seminole

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Your Smile Shouldn't Have a Silver Lining
It isn't that I don't believe that silver lined clouds are beautiful. It
isn't even that I don't like silver. It's just that what people commonly
call silver fillings really aren't silver except in color.
These so-called silver fillings are an amalgam that contains all kinds
of metals, the main one being mercury. Over
time, these fillings wear allowing mercury to
enter the body. Usually, after ten years, they
are no longer sealing the teeth correctly and
may need to be replaced.
I don't use these restorations in my practice.
In fact, I haven't done an amalgam filling in
over twenty years and do not have this material
in my office. The good news is that the newest
fillings have been perfected to the point where
they outperform amalgam and best of all look like natural tooth. In
reality, the best filling is no filling. It is true that the health of your
mouth is directly related to the health of your whole body. When your
mouth is healthy, all of you can be healthier too!
Of course, there are times when teeth become damaged because of
injury or decay, or simply because of wear over the years. We take a
preventive approach to preserve and retain more natural teeth and their
How do we do this? We start by encouraging very early dental care,
beginning before a child is even a year old and preserving teeth with
regular cleaning, fluoride treatment, proper home care and sealants.
But if you are a new adult patient, don't worry. We can help you keep
your teeth whole and healthy too. Our applied preventive measures
help keep anyone's teeth in their natural, strong condition.
We focus on regular cleaning and screenings so problems can be
caught well before they develop. And if there is a problem, our
restorative treatments are as non-invasive and natural as medically
possible. All of our restorations are custom created just for you using
natural, biocompatible materials for strength, health and beauty.

restorative dentistry can help you, call us at 727.586.1955 or visit

The Customers Have Spoken:
You'll Get a Great Style at a Great Price at Attractions
The Popular Seminole Salon Puts the Focus on Professional Hair Styling
You don't have to be around Attractions Salon for very long
before a client will offer an opinion. "I really love this place,"
said Becky of Seminole. "I never feel pressured here. Some
places are so fast-paced and crowded. They try to push too many
services other than hair and seem unfocused. It sometimes makes
me feel very uncomfortable. Attractions just does great hair."
Joanne Reeves, owner of Attractions, explains it best. "We have
found that most of our clients primarily come in for hair services and
already have a favorite nail or skin technician that they are happy
with," she said, "For that reason, we've eliminated other services
and put the focus on what we do best, and that's professional hair
cut, color and styling at prices that are extremely competitive. For
example, our Redken color, cut & style is just $65 everyday, and
Men's shampoo and cuts are only $15. We also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."
At Attractions, they provide a non-competitive setting. "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
stylists who are not only Redken-trained, but they're employees of
our company-so our clients never feel pressured when they come
here. They can always choose the stylist they want, at a time that's
convenient for them. We want them to feel comfortable."
Joanne Reeves, center, witn the Attractions learn
You're Always the Star at...
Quality You Expect at Prices You Can Afford
Regular clients of Attractions know what Joanne means by
comfortable. Not only are walk-ins and last-minute appointments
welcomed, but many of the day spa "converts" (who have become
regulars at Attractions) have learned that this salon makes their
clients feel like family. "They always offer me a cold beverage or
a new styling idea," said Kelly of Largo. "But what I really like is
their great pricing and the fabulous color and styling work they do
on my hair. The value here is incredible."
"We offer a new trend in Salons that is all about building a clientele
that expects professional quality and expertise from their stylist at a
price that's more affordable," said Joanne. "We would like to invite
everyone to give us a try and see the difference our attention to hair
makes. Bring us your hair and we'll make you a star-guys, too!"
The holidays are fast approaching! Be sure to ask about Holiday
Specials from Attractions. They make giving the gift of beautiful
hair this season fast, easy, and convenient!

their son Christo runs the kitchen staff and daughter Vicki runs the
dining room. The first Greek Village was on Central Ave. and 35th St. in St

Winter gag grouper migration starts
Last week's cold front may
have slowed fishing down for
most species, but for gag grouper
it signified a shallow water migra-
tion that takes place each fall
when our water temperature
drops into the 60s. Depths of 20
feet or less can hold quality gags.
We targeted these shallow
dwellings a few days before this
last front, when the water tem-
peratures were in the upper 70s.
Moving from spot to spot and
fishing with a combination of
frozen sardines and live pinfish
did not produce any keeper gags.
Flash forward to a couple of days
after the front and a water tem-
perature now in the upper 60s.
Fishing the same spots, we had
excellent action from gag grouper
ranging in size from 5 pounds to
one fish weighing over 15
pounds. This is no coincidence.
These big fish will hold up on
shallow ledges until sometime
after the first of the year when
they push farther offshore in

Target small ledges and areas

necessary to draw the active gag
grouper to your location. Typical-
ly the sardines will only produce
grunts and undersized red
grouper. However, don't be sur-
prised when a big gag grabs your
bait. Once you catch a gag or

Golfers may sign up as a
foursome or a single. Hot dogs,
should entice the bigger fish into
biting. In these shallower depths,
the fish will fight you all the way
to the surface and often make a
couple of runs back to the bot-
tom, so backing off the drag a bit
once you have the fish up off the
bottom will lessen your chance at
a pulled hook.

SBA gives advice on how to start a new business
Editor's note: Thefollowing information was pro-
vided by the Small Business Administration. Visit
How do I get a small business loan?
You should prepare a business plan, including
your loan proposal, and submit it to a local lender.
If the lender is unable to approve your loan, you
may request that your application be submitted, by
the lender, to the SBA. The SBA can guarantee up
to 80 percent of a small business loan; however, the
lender must agree to loaning the money with the
SBA guarantee. The lender will then forward your
loan application and a credit analysis to the nearest
SBA District Office. If the lender needs SBA applica-
tions and/or guidance it may contact the nearest
SBA District Office by going to SBA. Upon SBA ap-
proval, the lending institution closes the loan and
disburses the funds.
For further information and eligibility require-
ments, please go to financial assistance basics.
How do I get a small business grant?
At this time, Congress has not set aside any
monies for grants to start and/or expand a small
business. SBA does provide a loan guarantee pro-
gram for loans made by your local lender. The SBA
guarantees loans that the lender could not normally
approve. However, all funding is handled through
your local lender. For basic information visit Grants.
How do I get started in a business?
The U.S. Small Business Administration provides
a wealth of information on starting a business at the
SBA home page sba.gov under "Small Business
Planner." You will find information on writing a
business plan as well. You may take advantage of
SBA's resource partners. The Service Corps of Re-
tired Executives and the Small Business Develop-
ment Center provides free one-on-one counseling to
those interested in starting and expanding a busi-
ness. This includes critiquing your business plan,
legal requirements, marketing, and licenses needed
for your business. To find the location nearest you,
please visit us at SBA and click on your state.
How do I get a business license?
Licensing is generally handled through your state
or local government. You will need to consult your
local telephone directory in the "Government" sec-
tion for an office that will assist you with a license
or permit. See Business Licenses and Permits.
For FREE one-on-one counseling, please go to
SBA's home page sba.gov and select "Local Re-
sources" for an area local contact nearest you. The
Service Corps of Retired Executives and the Small
Business Development Center can assist you with
your business venture.
How do I write a business plan?
Go to SBA's home page sba.gov and select "Writ-
ing a Business Plan" under "Small Business Plan-
ner." You will find information on starting a
business and writing a business plan. Under "SBA
local resources" you can find local contacts such as
the Service Corps of Retired Executives and the
Small Business Development Center that provide
free one-on-one counseling in the
area of starting and
expanding a small
business. They can
assist you by cri-
tiquing your busi-
ness plan and yo .
business ideas. Y'ioi

sources" under sba.gov as

tance available in my area?
Yes. There are 375 SCOFRE
counselors to America's
chapters and ap-
proximately 1,000 Small Business Development
Centers nationwide. SCORE provides free expert ad-
vice based on many years of firsthand experience
and shared knowledge on virtually every aspect of

Santa Dollars sales benefit disabled veterans
CLEARWATER The Abilities Foundation is partnering with Publix
Supermarkets and Marketing Productions during the 2010 holiday sea-
son with the sale of Santa Dollars.
This novel gift includes a card and an actual dollar bill with a trade-
marked and registered Santa seal that covers George Washington's
face. The seal is removable so the dollar is spendable, or can be kept as
a collectible. All proceeds from Santa Dollars benefit the Abilities Foun-
dation's programs for disabled veterans returning from Iraq and
"Publix is an exemplary corporate citizen and 50-year benefactor of
Abilities," said Frank De Lucia, president of the Abilities Foundation, in
a recent press release. "Its longstanding and generous support has en-
abled us to help thousands of Floridians with disabilities obtain jobs
and affordable housing."
Santa Dollars cost $2.50 plus tax and are available only at Publix
Supermarkets throughout West Central Florida through the holidays.
Santa Dollars are the creative inspiration of Marketing Productions
Inc., a Palm Harbor company.
Since 1985, the company has partnered with retailers nationwide to
benefit nonprofit organizations. More than $25 million has been raised
The Abilities Foundation is a Clearwater-based, nonprofit that funds
the employment, housing, and health needs of people with disabilities.
Since its inception in 1959, Abilities has assisted more than 100,000
Floridians and their families. For information, visit www.abilitiesfoun

It's much ado
The Largo Cultural Center has been the subject of much critique
in recent weeks over the subsidies it receives from city government
and other issues.
The Cultural Center, which opened in 1996, has lived up to its
promise to Largo and the surrounding area as a charming venue for
theatrical and musical performances. Loyal patrons and the occa-
sional visitors to the center for years have enjoyed fine community
theater shows and entertainers at affordable prices.
Across the country, civic and cultural centers are heavily subsi-
dized by city funds. For the current fiscal year, the Largo Cultural
Center is earmarked to receive $335,000 from the city's general
fund. As several city commissioners have pointed out, that center's
cost of recovery stacks up well against comparable venues.
And yet, the subsidies to the Cultural Center became a campaign
issue in the election. Commissioner Curtis Holmes, too, has railed
against the subsidies.
Critics overlook the intangibles. Though it's hard to calculate the
economic value of the Cultural Center to the community, some pa-
trons who go to performances at the center spend money at local
restaurants and other businesses as part of their outing. Since the
complex is centrally located in Pinellas County, it can be easily
reached by residents of Largo and the surrounding area. Along
those lines, city officials are conducting a survey to determine the
usage of the Cultural Center and its economic value.
The Largo Golf Course is also under scrutiny because it receives
heavy subsidies from the city. But comparing the problems facing
the golf course with the subsidies the Cultural Center is receiving is
comparing apples to oranges. Unlike the golf course, the Largo Cul-
tural Center was never designed to be self-supporting through
The criticism also comes at a time when entertainment venues
are reeling from the economic downturn so it's encouraging that the
city's subsidies for the Cultural Center this year is expected to be
less than in many previous years. The city budget shows that the
attendance per show has remained steady and is expected to exceed
figures for the past three fiscal years.
The Cultural Center is served by numerous dedicated volunteers,
who contributed nearly 9,000 hours to its operations in the past fis-
cal year. Such a commitment shows how much the center is em-
braced and appreciated in the community.
Certainly, suggestions for improving the Cultural Center should
be encouraged. But it's understandable that the continuous crow-
ing about subsidies for the center is wearing thin with patrons and
residents who recognize the value of being able to enjoy a variety of
entertainment at low prices in their own community.
If they want drama, they'll go to a show.
I am writing to thank you and reporter Juliana A. Torres for the
article, "Food Pantries in need of donations" that appeared in the
Oct. 22 edition of the Pinellas Park Beacon. Volunteers from the
Good Samaritan Community Food Pantry were interviewed for the
article as well as volunteers for other local pantries.
I am pleased to tell you that our pantry has received both cash
and food donations in response to the article. I have also heard from
a representative of a local church that is planning to collect food for
us during the holidays.
As mentioned in the article, we did receive a truckload of food col-
lected by the Pinellas Park Thunderbirds youth football and cheer-
leading organization on October 25. A group of volunteers from our
organization sorted the food and restocked our shelves and stored
the overflow in our storage cabinets. We are very grateful for this do-
We are grateful for all donations to our pantry. Through October
2010, we have served over 1,250 adults and children. The need for
food assistance in our community continues to grow.

Happy 40th birthday, Seminole
What a big and busy year it has been with celebrating "Golden
50th" at both the Seminole Library and at Blessed Sacrament
Church and now to celebrate the 40th of our beloved Seminole.
I have worked at and still am a member of the Friends of the Li-
brary and participated in the early Pow Wow festivities, too. In addi-
tion to being active in the church choir, both my husband and I
worked in fundraising to help build the new church. So, I've really
seen this city grow over these many years.
From the moment I first arrived in Seminole, back in January
1971 some 39 years ago, I knew I found my new home. It was in the
air, in the beautiful blue sky and clouds, and I could feel it in my
heart and soul. After leaving Michigan I could even feel it in my
bones. Before coming to Seminole, I had already checked out the
east coast and the rest of the Gulf coast of Florida and even Arizona,
too. No matter how far and wide I went none compared nor gave me
that same comfortable, inviting feeling of home like Seminole.
I want to thank all those who have made Seminole as great as it
is. Starting with our founding fathers and Mr. (Jesse) Johnson, for-
mer mayors (Holland) Mangum, Dottie Reeder and current mayor
(Jimmy) Johnson. Also, all councilors past and present, and last but
not least our city manager, Mr. (Frank) Edmunds. Thank you all for
making Seminole such a wonderful city and place to call home.
So, congratulations on your first 40 years and best wishes on your
continued success so that there will be many more years ahead for
our beloved Seminole.

The dos and don't of
By now you may have noticed that net-
working is one of the most important things a
person can do. Every day, a new book or arti-
cle on networking is published. Their mes-
sage is this: If you don't know how to
network, you may never find a job. You might
as well give up and go climb down a well. At
least that's the way it sounds to me.
(I am writing this from the bottom of my
own well. I'm no good at networking. But I
shower daily and am kind to children. Does
that count for anything? I hope so.)
Invaluable tools of networking include a
ready smile, a firm handshake, a wealthy
spouse, and a resume that contains at least
one Nobel prize. These things give a network-
er confidence. Confidence is defined as the
ability to smile at a prospective employer and
say, "Kiss my grits."
An important "don't" of networking is this:
don't tell anyone you're an atheist, even if you
are one. People will accept a paroled serial
killer, but not an atheist. Exceptions to this
are humanists, who don't much care what
you believe as long as you're inclined to use
your brain at least half an hour a week.
Networking can be very specific. For exam-
ple, a Junior League member and a call girl
will network differently. If you need me to
spell out the details, you're probably only 8
years old and should be doing your home-
Many networkers overcome their shyness
by relying on two fellows named Jack Daniels
and Jim Beam. These guys encourage a net-
worker to chat up anything that moves, as
well as some objects that don't. Problem is,
next day the people he talked to have no de-
sire to meet him again.
Some networking experts tell you to be-
come a good listener. That's poor advice. Once
the other person sees that you're actually lis-
tening to what he/she is saying, they're off to
the conversational races. They never stop
talking long enough to let you tell them what
a great person you are.
The only way to stop their gabble is to
shout, "My horse just died!" This leaves every-
one speechless. It also ensures you won't be
considered for any sort of job.
To be an effective networker, you should be
able to tell impressive stories about all the
volunteer work you've done. Employers like
that, because it's an indicator that you'll
probably agree to work long hours of unpaid
overtime without complaining. You: "I spent
six months in Zimbabwe helping to eradicate
dengue fever." Employer: "Then you won't
mind devoting next weekend to the McGraw
project, will you? That's a good girl."
Good references are important when you're
networking. Of course, if you're only 22 and
have never held a job, you may have to invent
the identities of your alleged previous supervi-
sors. You do this by naming people who live
in Borneo or Sumatra, where communication
is still performed on jungle drums. This dis-
courages your prospective employers from
checking up on you.
So far I've been speaking only about busi-
ness networking, the never-ending search for
employment. A related and more enjoyable
form of networking is social networking.
The idea here is to find friends and acquain-
tances who share your interests. Of course, if
they also know of some job openings you
might fit, that's an added attraction.
From what I read, Facebook is the single
largest social networking site in the world.
But if you get too deep into Facebook, you
can end up spending so much time saying
"Hi!" and "I'm going into the kitchen now" that
you'll have little time left for serious business
I'm surprised that Facebook hasn't been
named a defendant in a number of divorce ac-
tions. Let's say that Sam Jones, a married
man, uses Facebook to find work as a bas-
soon player. He makes contact with Kitty
Rumpus, a violinist with the Live Oak Sym-
phony Orchestra. Friendship develops, then
romance, then a divorce. Sam's ex-wife
blames Facebook as the instigator. Sound un-
likely? Maybe. The point: when you're net-
working, step carefully.
I got a free divorce because of networking.
In the late 1960s I was separated, miserable
and living in Philadelphia. A man named
Arlen Specter was running for mayor. Just to
kill time, I volunteered to work on his cam-
paign. Along the way I met various people,
one of whom was a woman running for city
commission. She needed help handling pub-
licity. I wrote a series of news releases for her.
She won her race, and was grateful to me. It
turned out her husband was a lawyer. He
agreed to handle my divorce, at no charge.
So there you have it. Once you start net-
working, you never can tell.

Just a brush with poison ivy is enough
Leaves of three, let them be.
That's an old saying I was taught
as a child who loved to explore
What the plant of shiny three
leaves on a stem does is cause an
itchy rash when it comes in con-
tact with our skin poison ivy.
It can be found in all of the
states from Canada down to Mex-
Poison ivy grows along the
ground, up bushes and can grow
as a very thick-stemmed vine up
tree trunks. Years ago, I had to
call on a neighbor/farmer to
bring his tractor to pull a vine out
of an oak tree. The vine was as
large as a small tree. Unfortu-
nately, 30 years later, I see the
tree was removed.
When clearing a plot that may
contain poison ivy, common
sense says not to bur the brush.
If poison ivy is burned and in-
haled, the smoke will coat the
throat and lungs, thus will re-
strict breathing. Every part of the
plant can cause problems for
those who are allergic; and not
everyone is. I've even been infect-
ed by my cat who brushed
against it and after petting him, I
got the oil on my hands followed
by the rash.
The white seeds can be trans-
mitted by animals or birds or in
yard waste. Hopefully, our county
yard waste is heated enough to
kill the seeds.

Whenever I see leaves of three, I study it carefully.
Another common vine in our area is Virginia creep-
er. When the stem is young there are three leaves,
as the plant matures, there are five leaves that looks
like a hand. This plant does not cause rashes.
The best way to eliminate poison ivy plants is to
have a friend who is not allergic to it pull it out or
use a herbicide carefully and thoroughly.
After a red rash appears on skin, it may blister.
My fear was that the liquid in the blister would
cause more blisters and then more blisters and I'd

If I still got a rash, fresh aloe was soothing and heal-

Genre: Action, adventure and fantasy
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fi-
ennes, Helena Bonham Carter and Michael Gambon
Director: David Yates
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and final
adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a motion picture event,
told in two full-length parts.
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their per-
ilous mission to track down and destroy the Horcruxes the keys
to Voldemort's immortality. On their own, without the guidance or
protection of their professors, the three friends must now rely on
one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their
midst that threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the Wizarding world has become a dangerous place
for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun
and Voldemort's Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic
and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might
oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valu-
able to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the
hunted one as Voldemort's followers look for Harry with orders to
bring him to the Dark Lord ... alive.
Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds
him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost
forgotten tale the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend
turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided
by his past when, on that fateful day, he became "the Boy Who
Lived." No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to
the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first
stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

Diana Ross returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall Nov. 20
By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
CLEARWATER Diana Ross will bring her More Today Than Yester-
day tour to town Saturday, Nov. 20, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111
McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.
The legendary icon is expected to perform her greatest hits in what
is billed as "a spectacular live show." Ross will be pulling out all the
stops with breathtaking costumes and stage designs, along with a live
string and horn section.
An Academy Award nominated actress, Tony and Golden Globe win-
ner, and winner of eight American Music Awards, Ross has sold more
than 100 million records and recorded 18 No. 1 hit songs. Having
signed with Motown Records in 1961 with The Supremes, her music
became the sound of young America in the '60s. She embarked on her
extraordinary solo career in 1970. There is no doubt that she has had
a profound influence on American popular culture and has become a
legend in the entertainment industry.
For many fans, Ross has provided the soundtrack for the last five
With The Supremes, she recorded a seemingly endless string of hits,
including "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," "Come See About
Me," "Stop! In the Name of Love," "Back in My Arms Again," "I Hear a
Symphony," 'You Can't Hurry Love," "You Keep Me Hangin' On," "Love
Is Here and Now You're Gone" and "Love Child."
After recording 12 No. 1 singles with The Supremes through the
1960s, Ross parted ways with her group mates to strike out on a solo
career. Her final appearance with The Supremes took place Jan. 14,
1970, at the Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas.
Ross' eponymous debut album hit record store shelves in May 1970
and featured the No. 1 hit single "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," a
cover of a song penned by Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson first
recorded by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
Ross recorded nine solo albums through the 1970s, scoring No. 1
hits with 'Touch Me in the Morning," 'Theme from Mahogany (Do You
Know Where You're Going To)," "Love Hangover" and "Upside Down."
In 1981, she recorded the No. 1 hit "Endless Love" with Lionel
Since 1980, Ross has continued to record and release new material,
including albums such as "Diana," "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," "Silk
Electric," "Swept Away," "Eaten Alive," 'The Force Behind the Power"
Ross earned an Academy Award nomination for her unforgettable
role as Billie Holiday in "Lady Sings The Blues." Her work in film also
includes roles in the 1975 movie "Mahogany," 1978's musical 'The
Wiz" and the made-for-television movie "Out of Darkness" for which
Ross garnered a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a TV
Movie. She also is a bestselling author and a recipient of The Kennedy
Center Honors. Her reputation as a woman of great style and beauty
has put her on the covers of hundreds of magazines.
In 2004 McNally Smith College of Music honored Ross by the estab-
lishment of a full four-year scholarship in her name. The Diana Ross
Performance Scholarship is awarded each year to an outstanding stu-
dent who is pursuining a Bachelor in Music.
And so the legend continues.

Ensemble cast drives 'How the Other Half Loves' at Early Bird Dinner Theatre
Spiraling falsehoods, flawed de- --
ductions and strategically timed
misunderstandings and miscommu- CUtai Call
nications lay the groundwork for I.. Clark Zumpe
Early Bird Dinner Theatre's current
production; but it's the theater's tal-
ented troupe that really makes this
Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Dinner Theatre presents "How the Other
Half Loves," by Alan Ayckbourn, running through Dec. 26, at the Ital-
ian American Club, 200 S. McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.
The play centers on three married couples: Frank and Fiona Foster,
Bob and Teresa Phillips and William and Mary Detweiler. All three
men work at the same company, with Frank employing both Bob and
William, the latter having received a recent promotion.
"How the Other Half Loves" boasts a single set cunningly split in
two, with each side representing separate living rooms. On one side is
the Fosters' home, stylish and effortlessly tidy. On the opposing side is
the Phillips' home, a little drab and evidently messy.
The play's action takes place in both living rooms simultaneously,
giving director Robin New the ability to manipulate both time and
space as the tale unfolds.
In the first scene, we learn both Bob and Fiona came home late one
evening under suspicious circumstances. It quickly becomes clear that
Bob, who seems to quarrel endlessly with Teresa, is having an affair
with Fiona. When Teresa confronts Bob about his late night escapade
- and when Frank challenges Fiona about her tardiness on their wed-
ding anniversary each cheating spouse ultimately claims to have
been comforting one of the Detweilers, who, they claim, are having
marital problems of their own.
By the time the Detweilers arrive on stage, the deception is growing
more complicated by the second. As each loose thread begins to un-
ravel, the absurdity of the situation elicits ever increasing fits of laugh-
Gail Scott and Charles Wilcox portray the Fosters, shrewdly under-
scoring their characters' aristocratic pretentiousness. Scott brings out
Fiona's cattiness as well as her arrogance, playing the perfect aloof
snob. Wilcox does a wonderful job depicting Frank as terminally ab-
sent-minded and hysterically prone to jumping to all the wrong con-
In playing Teresa and Bob, Tracy Borgatti and Ian MacCallum cre-
ate the perfect contrast to the sterile, detached relationship of Fiona
and Frank. Borgatti and MacCallum generate plenty of heat on the
stage, whether Teresa and Bob are at each other's throats or letting
their passion run wild.
Barbara Anthony and Joseph Alan Johnson conjure up some of the
show's most hilarious moments as the Detweilers. Anthony's panicky,
sniffling agoraphobic Mary doesn't have to do anything more than
snort on cue to get the audience going. As her character transforms,
her performance only gets better. Johnson, meanwhile, is equally con-

Despite the ingenuity of Ayckbourn's 1969 play, it's really the pro-
duction company that makes "How the Other Half Loves" really click.
All that witty dialog would fall flat without brilliant comedic timing, a
talent possessed by each of these actors. Wilcox, in particular, shows
his mastery of this skill in this production.
Likewise, the inventive setting must be thoroughly convincing. Eddy
Lyons, set designer for this production, did a fine job, best highlighted
during a scene in which the three couples enjoy "simultaneous" dinner
parties, hosted on two different evenings.

can popular culture and has become an icon in the entertainment in-
dustry. She has sold more than 100 million records and recorded 18
No. 1 hits songs. Her music became the sound of young America in
the '60s soon after she signed with Motown Records in 1961 with The

14th studio album, "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards," produced
and recorded by Mike Fraser and Satriani. Satriani is joined by former
bandmate Jeff Campitelli as well as newcomers, keyboardist Mike Ke-
neally and bassist Allen Whitman. Satriani's classic sound is accom-
panied 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
extravaganza. As one of the world's most renowned instrumental
artists, Satriani 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 con-
tained 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, for-
mer bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer
Chad Smith, to form the stand-out rock collaboration, Chickenfoot.
After a highly successful 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.

Carr, Tom Gannon, Suzy Fritz, Susan Dearden, Grace Coll, Tammy
Folstad, Diane Lynne and Ingrid Steele. The setting is the creepy
mansion of mystery playwright, Sebastian Sly, whose death has
brought together his only relatives and staff for the reading of the will.
Interrupting the festivities is the appearance of The Creeper, a myste-
rious escapee from the neighboring asylum. The search for The Creep-
er involves staff from the asylum, as well as local law enforcement.
Shifting walls and electrical problems make finding the escapee more
difficult. Add in a caustic critic of Sly's work and all manner of hilari-
ty and chills ensue.

'Made in Dagenham'
Genre: Foreign, comedy and drama
Cast: Sally Hawkins, Andrea Risborough,
Bob Hoskins, Geraldine James and James
Director: Nigel Cole
When we think of '60s revolutionaries, the
women of Dagenham don't fit the cliches but
these feisty, funny factory girls shook their
world with spirit and courage and achieved
lasting social change (yes, even the grannies
were "girls" to the men of Ford management
and their own labor union).
Based on a true story, "Made in Dagenham"
portrays a decisive moment in that decade of
upheaval, when the fight for equal rights and
pay was led unexpectedly by ordinary work-
ing-class women with one foot in the kitchen,
one foot on the factory floor, and ears glued to
the pop coming over the radio and telly from
far-off London (19 kilometers and a world
away). It's a vintage "girl power" tale.
Genre: Foreign, drama and war
Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Nicolas Duvauchelle,
Christopher Lambert, Isaach DeBankole and
Director: Claire Denis
From Claire Denis, the incomparable direc-
tor of "Beau Travail," "L'Intrus" and "35 Shots
of Rhun," comes "White Material," a rich and
thrilling account of a woman driven to the
An official selection of the Venice, Toronto
and New York Film festivals, the film is a rivet-
ing exploration of the complexities of racial
conflict and the limits of human will. The leg-
endary Isabelle Huppert is Maria Vial, a fear-
less French woman attempting to run her
family's coffee plantation in an unnamed
African country. Torn violently apart by hate-
fueled civil conflict, this unforgiving setting
soon turns against the foreign family, declaring
them outlaws in their new home.
In a brash effort to save her family and liveli-
hood, Maria risks everything, fighting with
every shred of her will to buck the rebel forces
wrestling for control of local power.

'Dolphin Tale' proceeds
with photography at CMA
By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
CLEARWATER According to a press release
from Warner Bros. Pictures, principal photog-
raphy has begun on Alcon Entertainment's
"Dolphin Tale," inspired by the remarkable true
story of a courageous dolphin named Winter
and the compassionate people who banded to-
gether to save her life.
The film stars Academy Award winner Mor-
gan Freeman, recording artist and actor Harry
Connick Jr., award-winning actress Ashley
Judd and music and movie legend Kris Kristof-
The main cast also features young actor
Nathan Gamble and newcomer Cozi Zuehls-
dorff, as well as the actual Winter, who plays
herself in the movie.
"Dolphin Tale" is being directed by Charles
Martin Smith and produced by Alcon Enter-
tainment's Broderick Johnson and Andrew A.
Kosove and Richard Ingber. Robert Engelman
and Steven P. Wegner are serving as executive
producers. The screenplay is by Karen Jan-
szen, Noam Dromi, Charles Martin Smith and
'The real Winter has served as an example of
courage, perseverance and hope to people
around the world," producers Johnson and
Kosove stated in the press release announcing
the start of production. "We're hoping that the
movie about her extraordinary rescue and re-
covery will also inspire, as well as entertain,
'We are very excited to be filming 'Dolphin
Tale' at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the
very place where her story unfolded," Ingber
said. "And we are also thrilled to be working
with Charlie and our amazing cast. But, with-
out a doubt, Winter is the one who has cap-
tured all our hearts. She is a star in every
sense of the word."
Collaborating with Charles Martin Smith be-
hind the scenes are director of photography
Karl Walter Lindenlaub, editor Harvey Rosen-
stock and costume designer Hope Hanafin.
"Dolphin Tale" is being filmed on location in
Florida, including Clearwater Marine Aquari-
um. The aquarium's motto is "Rescue, Rehabil-
itate and Return."
Slated for release on Sept. 16, 2011, "Dol-
phin Tale" will be distributed by Warner Bros.
Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Com-
CMA remains closed to accommodate filming.
David Yates, the CEO of CMA, said in a recent
message on the aquarium's news blog that the
facility expects to reopen just before Christmas.
As of Nov. 12, Yates said that the crew is 35
days into its 55-day filming schedule for "Dol-
"The filming process has gone incredibly
well, as we have had perfect weather," Yates
said. 'The four major stars have all been at
CMA on various days."
Yates said that "the big star, Winter, has out-
performed them all."
According to Yates, global media is already
ramping up as excitement builds around the
world for what he beleives will be a very inspir-
ing 3-D movie.
"Our current release date is Sept. 16, 2011,
but we may push it back a few weeks," Yates
said. "In the meantime, you will begin to see
advertisements and related media coverage for
the movie. When you see the movie, look close-
ly as there are quite a few CMA staff and volun-
teers scattered throughout it."
While the facility remains closed to public
admissions, CMA animal care and stranding
response have not been affected during filming.

Dolphins at John's
Pass reveal their numbers game
Saturday at sea reminded me
of something I don't do much
anymore: add new dolphins to
the list of dolphins who use our
Once I identified and named
the new ones, I decided to take
the next step. It took an entire
day, but I discovered exactly how
many dolphins we've seen to
date, the rate at which we discov-
ered them, and that we have evi-
dence in favor of something we've
suspected for a long time.
We identify individual dolphins
by unique patterns of notches
and nicks on the dorsal fin. All
identified dolphins are entered
into a photo identification cata-
logue. A photo-ID catalogue is a
"family photo album" of individu-
In one form or another, photo-
ID catalogues are the basis of an-
imal conservation studies. They
serve as a database of individual
animals. When memory doesn't
serve, they verify whether partic-
ular individuals have been sight-
ed with a comparison of pictures.
Catalogues teach assistants to
recognize individual animals
without the need to invest years
into personal experience. Finally,
catalogues keep a running tab on
the number of animals who have
Animal conservation studies
depend on photo-ID catalogues.
To conserve wild populations,
field biologists have to monitor
the animals to determine if their
numbers are above, below, or at
carrying capacity. To do that,
they have to know how many ani-
mals use an area. To do that,
they need ways to identify indi-
viduals reliably and the funds to
survey them regularly.
Consider a study of our local
pelicans. Your first task would be
to develop a reliable way to tell in-
dividual pelicans apart. This
would have to include tracking
individual birds as they change
feather patterns across maturity.
How would you do it?
The Saturday at sea that pre-
cipitated my day of discovery in-
volved one of those madcap
aggregations in John's Pass. Le-
gions of dolphins and pelicans
dove repeatedly into coffee-col-
ored waters; Nature was hosting
a seafood festival.
Three dozen dolphins segregat-
ed themselves into a dozen small
groups scattered from the cause-
way into the shallow east bays.
Closest to the causeway, sever-
al mothers we see rarely (see Dol-
phin Watch's Time for the girls of
the Gulf) fed while their grown
calves flitted about. These were
the new dolphins we had to iden-
tify. Getting pictures of frenetical-
ly feeding dolphins is hard. We'd
just finished when they left to
roam the open range of the Gulf.
Then local bulls N and Schnoz
cruised past, petting each other
affectionately as they trailed the
By and by, local bulls BB and
DD2 bustled up with young calf
Doodle while mom DD1 fed. DD2
and Doodle have been playing to-
gether for a couple of months
now. But the combination of two
big bull playmates got little Doo-
dle all excited: He jumped repeat-
edly near the boardwalk while
shoppers and diners cheered.
Further east, wads of feeding
moms, cavorting calves, and
randy teens surged through wa-
ters whipped tan by the winds.

about, stimulating female LA

How long did it take to develop
a photo-ID catalogue that lets us
identify all the dolphins? The an-
swer lies in a statistic called the
discovery rate curve, which illus-
trates the accumulation of newly
identified animals over the course
of time. Discovery curves are
arching lines that resemble the
left half of the letter U laid clock-
wise on a line graph.
On the graph, the bottom part
of the half-letter U is steep when
new animals are found regularly:
lots of new animals for little time
invested. As it rounds the curve
and become more horizontal, it
indicates that new animals are
encountered more slowly: few an-
imals for lots of time invested.
The more horizontal the line, the
closer you are to having all the
dolphins in the catalogue.
Altogether, we've identified 261
different dolphins. Encounter
rates were steep for the first two
years and shallower thereafter.
We identified 123 new dolphins
the first year and about half that
number (57) during the second
year. Unexpectedly, we've identi-
fied nearly two dozen new dol-
phins a year for the last four
That means that we can de-
scribe John's Pass as a semi-
closed dolphin community of
about 100 resident dolphins that
regularly hosts a range of nonres-
ident dolphins. I arrived at the
count of about 100 by defining
the local community as probably
comprised of the 54 dolphins
we've seen every year for six
years, their current calves and
another 37 seasonal bulls and
seasonal mother-calf pairs who
appear here annually.
And about the nonresident dol-
phins? About a third of the 261
dolphins were seen during only
one year. A third of these were
calves, half of whom died as
neonates and half who weaned
from mom successfully. Another
third are the "strange new" moth-
er-calf pairs who passed through
our local waters once. The final
third are the great unknown.
This evidence nicely supports
something we've suspected for a
long time, that John's Pass is a
vital social ground and nursery
ground for bottlenose dolphins.
Any loss of habitat quality that
compromises the freshness of the
gene pool and calf survival chal-
lenges the ability of the 6th gen-
eration from now to see dolphins
as we do today.

Making This Right
Health and Safety
For information visit: bp.com
"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?
Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it
helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.
Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.
Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the next time you're shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
