City OKs energy-efficient upgrades

Councilors approve $420,396 for better lighting retrofits, sensors


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE Keeping with the city's policy to go
green as much as possible, city councilors voted unani-
mously Nov. 23 to spend $420,396 for more energy effi-
ciency upgrades at city facilities and a pair of efficiency
studies for the Recreation Center.
The funding will come from the city's Capital Im-
provement Projects fund but the city's net cost will be
only $130,324 after it receives partial repayment of
$290,072 in the form of a state Energy Efficiency and
Conservation Block Grant for energy efficiency improve-


ments.
The grant will help repay the city for LED lighting
retrofits, installation of occupancy sensors at City Hall
and sports field lighting improvements. The two Recre-
ation Center studies will focus on an HVAC energy
audit and the possible use of solar power at the Recre-
ation Center.
Councilor Jim Quinn asked City Manager Frank Ed-
munds how much the city will save long-term with the
improvements.
'Tens of thousands of dollars," said Edmunds. "It's
an effort for our city to become more energy efficient

Seminole couple makes


volunteerism full-time job


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE Since moving to Seminole 10
years ago, Enid and Luis Arroyo have put new
meaning into the term volunteerism.
Enid, 72, and Luis, 71, are textbook exam-
ples of maintaining an active retirement life.
But more importantly they're doing it to give
back to the community.
Enid volunteers regularly at Seminole High
School as a tutor and mentor for the Pinellas
Education Foundation's Doorways Scholarship
program. She also serves as co-chair of the
school's advisory council.
Luis is on call for the same duties at Semi-
nole High and spends a day per week working
with the Enterprise Village program at the


Pinellas Education Foundation.
They're not sure how many hours they will
volunteer this year, but Luis estimated the
couple donated more than 700 hours per year
between 2003 and 2009.
It doesn't stop there. The couple also volun-
teer at their grandson's school in Largo, teach
time management at St. Justin Martyr
Catholic Church, make regular donations to
the Haitian relief fund through Catholic Chari-
ties and contribute items to Pinellas Hope
homeless camp.
"You'd be surprised what people throw away
and some other people can use," said Enid.
They also have done work with Big Brothers

The city recently opened its new Public Works Ad-
ministration/Emergency Operations Center and Public

Panel


tackles


coyote


issues
By JULIANA A. TORRES
PINELLAS PARK Residents
from across Pinellas County,
many angry and upset with what
they see as a growing coyote
problem in their neighborhoods,
packed a meeting room recently
in Park Station for a forum about
the highly adaptable predators.
"Everyone keeps saying, it's not
our problem. We're here to ask,
whose problem is it? What do we
do?" said Ellen Hoffman, a mem-
ber of Pinellas Park's equestrian
community, which has had in-
creased difficulty with coyotes
lately. "I lost four cats before we
knew what the heck was going
on. We're afraid next it's going to
be attacking something else, the
dogs or the horses, or the other
animals we have in that area."
A panel of four experts an-
swered residents' questions, al-
layed some of their fears and
encouraged proper behaviors to-
ward coyotes. What they didn't
do, however, was assure resi-
dents that coyotes could be elimi-
nated from Pinellas County.
'Trying to eradicate coyotes, it's
not going to work," said Greg An-
drews, operations manager for
Pinellas County Animal Services.
"It didn't work in California. They
still have a coyote problem after
spending millions of dollars. Un-
fortunately, Pinellas County can't
solve this problem."
Andrews opened the discus-
sion with a presentation outlining
coyotes' basic habits, hunting
practices and capabilities. He em-
phasized that residents' primary
defense against coyotes in an
urban environment was in-
creased awareness and educa-
tion.
"They've not necessarily be-
come more brazen or more ag
gressive. Believe it or not, we've
conditioned them to their current
state," he said. "Most of the time,
they go out of their way to avoid

Pinellas Trail celebrates 20th anniversary


By SUZETTE PORTER

In the beginning, it stretched from Taylor Park in Largo to the
Seminole City Hall Park and covered about five miles.
Twenty years later, the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail is 37 miles
long and can be used to travel from Tarpon Springs to St. Peters-
burg. The next goal is to complete the Pinellas Trail Loop, linking
the county east to west, by 2020.
On Saturday, Dec. 4, Pinellas Trails Inc., a citizens' volunteer
group, is hosting a 20th anniversary celebration at 10 a.m. at Tay-
lor Park, 1100 Eighth Ave. SW, in Largo.
Bob Evans restaurants are providing refreshments. The restau-
rants also will donate a percentage of customer's bills that day to
Pinellas Trails Inc. for those who mention the Pinellas Trail.
Fred Marquis and others instrumental to the trails success will
speak. Several dignitaries are scheduled to appear.
According to Scott Daniels, president of the volunteers' organiza-
tion, the idea for the Pinellas Trail got its start due to a series of
events and the vision and support by several key people.
It was 1983, and the county was trying to figure out what to do
with a 34-mile corridor of abandoned CSX railroad right of way,
which had been purchased by the Florida Department of Trans-
portation.
Bert Valery's son had been killed when he was struck by a car
while riding his bicycle home from work. Soon thereafter, Valery
helped form the Metropolitan Planning Organizations Bicycle Advi-
sory Committee, which worked with the Pedestrian Safety Commit-
tee to improve safety for people riding bikes, walking and jogging.
Daniels praised Valery's work to making the trail what it is today.
"He took his grief and turned it into something positive," Daniels
said. "He was a leader who got the concept going to create a place
for safe bicycling in Pinellas. He wanted to do something positive for
other families to create a safe place for families and children."
In 1984, Valery's Bicycle Advisory Committee proposed using the
old railroad track right-of-way as a bike route. In 1988, Pinellas
Trails Inc. formed and the rest is 20 years of "remarkable" history,
Daniels said.
The trail committee came up with the idea of expanding the trail
to a linear park concept, Daniels said. The next step was seeking
public support, which he said came easy.
"The committee of volunteers included school teachers, bankers
and business people who had the knowledge needed to turn the
tracks into a safe trail for transportation and recreation," he said.
He explained the linear park concept, saying that since the be-
ginning, the plan had been to link the trail with conservation areas
- municipal and county parklands.
In 1989, Pinellas County commissioners approved the Pinellas
Trail project and allocated $1.5 million to build a 15-mile segment.

Bikers and joggers enjoy spending time on the 37-mile Pinellas Trail.
Voters approved the Penny for Pinellas sale tax at a referendum,
providing funding to complete 35 miles of trail.
In 1990, two trail preview sites were built near Seminole City
Park and at Curlew Road and Alternate 19 in Dunedin. On Dec. 1,
the first five miles were completed from Taylor Park to Seminole
City Park. In 1991, the first trail overpass opened over Ulmerton
Road in Largo.
Looking at a timeline of trail projects shows openings of new sec-
tions and overpasses almost every year thereafter.
Among the major milestones is the local trail's designation as a
National Recreation Trail by the United States Department of Inte-
rior, the National Park Service in 2003. In 2008, the trail was for-
mally inducted into the Rail-Trail Hall of Fame.
Daniels praised the cooperation by municipal and county gov-
ernments and the partnership between those governments and the
private sector that he says has been nothing but positive.
He attributes that cooperation and partnership as the impetus
behind the vision and drive to take what was once an abandoned
railroad track and turn it into something now enjoyed by more
than 75,000 pedestrians, bicyclists and skaters.
"And this positive enthusiasm continues 20 years later as we
enter our second decade," he said.
The trail has been a win-win for everyone, he said.
Studies show that properties near the trail have increased val-
ues. Businesses near the trail do well, and some have even paid to
build a trail access to their stores. The trail has been a big boost to

tourism.
Daniels said while the beaches are the No. 1 draw for tourism in
the county, the trail comes in at No. 2.
The county is responsible for the maintenance of the trail. Con-
struction is paid for by Penny for Pinellas money from the county
and municipalities. Pinellas Trail Inc. has provided benches, bike
racks and water fountains. He said other organizations have joined
in, making donations to improve the trail's amenities.
Trail safety has always been of paramount importance, Daniels
said. One of the newest improvements is an emergency response
system with decals that enable emergency response vehicles to pin-
point the exact location of an incident. The bright yellow decals are
adhered directly on the trail surface about 200-feet apart. Each
has a unique location number and provides contact numbers to re-
port maintenance problems.
The decals begin at Demens Landing in downtown St. Petersburg
and continue east of U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs where the trail
ends at Melon Street and Keystone Road.
The trail is open from sunrise to sunset. The Pinellas County
Sheriffs Office, assisted by members of the Pinellas Trail Auxiliary,
is responsible for its safety. Safety rules include:
Alcoholic beverages are prohibited
Pedestrians and handicapped have the right of way.
Wheelchairs are asked to keep to the pedestrian lanes. The only
motorized vehicles allowed are electric handicap wheelchairs.
Bicyclists are required to obey all traffic controls and signals;
are not permitted to wear headphones at any time; and if under
age 16, they must wear a helmet. Electric bicycles are not allowed.
Bicyclists and skaters should obey posted speed limits. No rac-
ing, race training or pace lines are allowed. Skaters should use
bike lanes, and both skaters and cyclists should give an audible
warning when passing.
Horses are not allowed on the trail. Pets must be kept on a 6-
foot leash, and pet owners must pick up after their pets.
For problems with animals on the trail, call Animal Services at
582-2600. The park ranger's phone number is 582-2100. For infor-
mation on bus routes near the trail, call the Pinellas Suncoast
Transit Authority at 540-1900.
Daniels said more volunteers are welcome. Auxiliary members
serve as trail rangers and are required to donate 12 hours a month
walking or riding along the trail. He said they wear uniforms and
receive training from the county. For more information, visit
www.pinellascounty.org/trailgd/default.htm or call 464-8200.
When the Pinellas Trail concept was born, the practice of turning
old rail lines into trails was new, Daniels said.
"Now, it's a new concept that's 20 years old," he said. "And when
the loop is finished, we'll be making history again because as far as
I know there is not another trail in the United States that loops a
community the way ours will."
Daniels, who lives in Clearwater, is involved in many other com-
munity activities, but said the Pinellas Trail citizen's organization is
one of his favorites.
'This is a wonderful opportunity with involvement from a lot of
good people," he said. 'They come from all municipalities. They're
young and old, live in downtown and suburban areas. They're re-
tirees and working people. They all want to make sure the Pinellas
Trail is a good place for the community."

Attendance at Eagle Lake Park exceeds expectations


By THOMAS MICHALSKI
LARGO The number of visitors to Eagle Lake Park since it opened
March 30 exceeds expectations.
'The numbers are larger than we anticipated making this the
third most visited park in Pinellas County," said Pinellas County
Commission Chair Karen Seel, in an e-mail.
County Parks and Conservation Resources Director Paul Cozzie
said the 163-acre park, located at 1800 Keene Road, is on track to
have more than 1.2 million visits in the first full year of operation,
"behind only Fort De Soto and Fred Howard parks" in visits.
"I believe that the central location, natural assets, and the fishing
all contribute to our citizens attending this wonderful park," Seel
said.
Visitors to the park jog and walk on its trails, observe wildlife and
relax as their children romp in the playground.
'This is a great place to enjoy an afternoon," said park attendee
Ruth Tripp of Clearwater. She and her mother, Anne Schulert, also of
Clearwater, were taking in the sun on a recent fall afternoon.
"I recently received a Pacemaker and cannot drive any longer,"
Schulert said. "So my daughter brings me here to enjoy the fresh air."
Some people just come to enjoy an afternoon away from the de-
mands of daily life. Such was the case of Anessy Caban and Nick
Goc, both of Clearwater.
'We've known one another since middle school," Goc said. Both are
University of South Florida students. He is majoring in environmen-
tal science and she in broadcast journalism.
'The park is midway between our respective homes," Caban said.
"We live in opposite ends of Clearwater."
The park's entrance is on Keene Road, but it also is bordered by
McMullen, Belleair and Rosary roads and Lake Avenue. It is home to
squirrels, birds, tortoises, water turtles and other animal species.
There are six picnic shelters built to resemble pole barns, three
restrooms, a dog park, a paved recreation trail, boardwalks over re-
stored wetlands and fishing docks.
'We like to bring the baby here," said Kristin Trezza of Clearwater


as she and her husband, Michael, watched their smiling toddler,
Trinity, 1, enjoy a swing ride. "It's really avery, very nice park."
The land on which the park is situated once belonged to the Taylor
Family who were early Pinellas County pioneers. Once used for cattle
and citrus groves, orange trees can still be seen.
It cost $15.2 million to purchase the land and another $8.3 million
for improvements. About $7.2 million came from Penny for Pinellas


funds, $565,610 in Florida Recreation Development Assistance Pro-
gram grants, and another $761,750 from the Southwest Florida
Water Management District.

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 Beck% 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. Anrractions just does great hair."

Joanne Ree es, owner of Aitractions. explains it best. "We have
found that most of our clients primarily come in for hair services and
alre.id have a favorite nail or skin technician that they are happy
with," she said. "For that reason, we've eliminated oiler services
and put the focus on what we do best, and that's professional hair
cut, color and sryIinll at prices that are extremely competitive. For
example. our Redken color, cut & style is just S(65 e\erd;i\. and
Men's shampoo and cuts are only $15. \\e also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."

At An.ractions. lhe) pro\ ide a non-competitive setting. "You 11 find
no independent contractors here," Joanne added. "Attractions has

Bob Peterson of Largo, asks if coyotes pose a threat to children. "We've got a serious problem," he said. Greg
Andrews, Pinellas County Animal Services Operations Manager, said there were no coyote attacks on
humans he knew of in Pinellas County and hardly any reported ever.


COYOTES, from page 1A

humans. They've discovered that we're a good
source of food for them."
Breanne Strepina, a wildlife biologist with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
emphasized that residents were seeing more coyotes
in recent weeks because coyotes are in the process
of kicking grown juveniles out of their territory. Coy-
otes are not social creatures and will only work in
groups while their litter is maturing, she said. The
recent increased coyote sightings are mainly due to
these displaced juveniles.
"Come December or January, you're going to see
less and less of them," Strepina said. "You're not
going to ever have an area that has no coyotes. Coy-
otes are in every nook and cranny of this entire
state. It may sound scary, but they've been there
the entire time."
While coyotes aren't a protected species and
could be hunted without permits, it is illegal to dis-
charge a firearm in densely-populated Pinellas
County. Many residents were specifically frustrated
with that limitation. Members of Pinellas Park
equestrian community complained that the feral
cats they cared for and used as barn cats were dis-
appearing.
"All of sudden they're all gone. All of them," Hoff-
man said. "We've lost all the ducks, we've lost all the
raccoons. We've lost everything, everything in the
area. And now you're telling us that I can't shoot the
damn thing. So what do I do?"
The audience, many of which were from outside
of Pinellas Park, agreed with the sentiment.
'That's what happened down at Pinellas Point,"
said Mary Vollmer, a resident of that area. 'There's
no animals hardly left, hardly no birds ... no rac-
coons, no possums. They've gotten so many of
them. It's just too much. I'm just so frustrated."
Addressing the fears that coyotes would turn to
bigger prey, Strepina explained that the coyotes
would expand their territories, fighting off other coy-
otes to do so, if they ran out of mammals under 10
pounds that commonly make up their diet. Also,
coyotes are not exclusively predators, she said, able
to live off a diet of seeds, berries or vegetation.
The panel suggested a number of preventative
methods for keeping coyotes from small animals on
which they would otherwise prey: fences higher
than 4 feet with measures to keep the coyotes from
digging under the fence; motion sensors, strobe
lights or sirens. Constructing 7-foot or higher posts
with platforms could give feral cats an escape route,
Andrews said.
However, the panel argued that keeping all food
sources, including pets and livestock feed, indoors
or locked away was the best method of keeping coy-
otes at bay.
"It depends on your behavior too. Are you going to
provide food for 20, 30 cats in one area? If so, you're
creating a smorgasbord for larger animals," Strepina
said. "Anything that's going to attract a raccoon, is
going to attract a coyote. Eliminate those sources
and you're not going to be seeing coyotes as much."
Additionally, coyotes, especially a potential prob-
lem coyote that displayed aggressive behavior to-
ward humans, could be trapped and euthanized.
However, trapping a coyote is a highly skilled task,
best left to professionals, Florida Wildlife Control As-
sociation President Charles Carpenter said.
"Any trapper that takes on a coyote job that's
worth his salt, should do his research before he
even quotes you a price," said Wayne Salicrup, vice
president of Florida Wildlife Control Association and
owner of the private company Trapline Wildlife Ser-
vices.
Salicrup said he would only take on a job from an
entire suburban neighborhood, rather than just one
resident, or from a client with enough land to track
the coyote's movements to determine its "core area,"
using aerial photos. Targeting coyotes seen in too
small an area, a single homeowner's backyard for
example, was futile, as the sighted coyote may never
return to that exact spot, Salicrup said.
"We can successfully control them in pretty much
any area. It is definitely possible," he said. "It is a lot

terms of the agreement, Progress Energy pays the
city 6 percent of its base revenues for the fran-
chise area. Last year that amounted to approxi-
mately $1.5 million in revenue for the city.
Passed on second reading a development
agreement with Suncoast Chrysler, 8755 Park
Blvd., that allows the auto dealership to erect spe-
cial signage on its new showroom building in ex-
change for reducing the size of another sign on the
perimeter of the property.

Approved the sale of beer and wine at the

of work. You have to set traps every day."
Salicrup also suggested the farming communities
consider getting a dog specifically bred to ward off
coyotes. Donkeys and llamas also were suggested as
guard animals.
The other major problem with attempting to elim-
inate a coyote population was their reproductive
habits. If the population feels threatened, coyotes
will reproduce more often, twice a year instead of
once a year, and have more offspring per litter, up
to 12 pups instead of a usual six, Strepina said.
"So next year, the situation could be worse," she
said.
Because of that, past statewide attempts to elimi-
nate coyote populations in California, Texas and
Arizona have proved "expensive and futile," Andrews
said.
Sgt. Tracey Schofield with the Pinellas Park Police
Department also said that law enforcement would
take a "dim view" of residents trying to shoot coy-
otes at the expense of surrounding property or
neighbors. He also said the department would give
calls about coyotes a low priority, explaining that by
the time officers arrived on scene, the chances of
the coyote still being there were slim.
'We're always going to have coyotes. They're part
of our community," Schofield said. "I know that's
hard to swallow when you have pets that are near
and dear to your heart, but I think we have to work
on how we're going to have to live with these ani-
mals instead of how we're going to eradicate them. I
think we heard tonight, we're not going to eradicate
them."
Susan Walker, Pinellas Park Neighborhood Ser-
vices Administrator, encouraged residents to report
every single sighting of a coyote with Pinellas Coun-
ty's online sighting form. Members of Pinellas Park's
equestrian community complained that the result-
ing online coyote sighting map was completely inac-
curate, arguing that there were dozens of cases they
had not reported, from daily sightings to animals
gone missing from their farms. Walker said the map
was the only way of tracking coyotes that local offi-
cials have.
"If we're ever in a position to be able to identify a
problem coyote, we're got to have all of you doing
your part and putting those sightings in. If it's six a
day, please take the time to do that," Walker said. "If
we're to take a next measure, we've got to know how
significant the problem is and where those sightings
are taking place."
She also said that city officials have offered to fill
out the paperwork for residents with sightings with-
in Pinellas Park if they called the nonemergency po-
lice dispatch number at 541-0758.
City of Pinellas Park officials decided to hold the
forum after they received an e-mail from a resident
about a coyote. Before that, the city didn't know
they even had a coyote problem, Walker said. She
added that city officials were working to educate
themselves and provide as much information to res-
idents on the issue.
Educational information from the forum was
posted to the city's website, www.pinellas-park.com,
under "Quick Access" box on the front page. The
"Coyote Information" link also includes access to the
county's coyote sighting form.

How to prevent coyote attacks
to humans and pets
Do not feed coyotes.
Do not feed pets outdoors or leave food out-
doors.
Remove other food sources, such as trash and
fruit fallen from trees.
Secure trash with lockable lids.
Do not use overflow bird feeders, or hang them
high so coyotes can't access them.
Keep overgrown areas trimmed and well
cleaned.
Keep pets indoors or in a safe enclosure from
dusk to dawn.
Harass coyotes when you see them (i.e. loud
noises, clapping, yelling, throwing rocks at them,
waving your arms, using air horns)

Biltmore could become



assisted living facility


By HARLAN WEIKLE

BELLEAIR- From five-star hotel to assisted living
facility may seem like a reversal of fortune to some,
but for David R. Vaughan, CEO of Senior Care
Group, Inc. it makes perfect sense.
From their offices in Tampa Tuesday, Vaughan
and company President Kevin McGuinness spoke
enthusiastically about their bid to build a senior as-
sisted living facility at the Belleview Biltmore site.
"We're the ideal candidate," McGuinness said.
'They're (KAWA Capital Management) looking for a
partner that will satisfy all parties, we fit that
mould."
Senior Care Group officials signed a letter of
agreement with KAWA Capital Management of
Miami Nov. 12. Daniel Ades, a principal of KAWA,
had said earlier they are seeking a partner to pur-
chase the hotel.
'There is a tsunami coming in senior health care,"
Vaughan said. "Hospitals have to partner with facili-
ties of equivalent care capabilities like Senior Care
or face penalties from the insurance companies. It's
important that we meet the needs of the communi-
ty."
Senior Care Group, a nonprofit 501-(C)(3) corpo-
ration, operates eight senior facilities in Florida in-
cluding two in Pinellas County; Harbour Wood at
2855 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater and Grace
Wood Nursing Center at 8600 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas
Park. Their newest campus in Key West, Key West
Health and Rehabilitation Center, opened Tuesday.
"If we're successful we'll be good neighbors to the
community, providing a much needed service and
with very low impact," McGuinness said.
McGuinness said their deal did not include the
Cabana Club property on Sand Key.
'We were not offered that," he said.
Ades confirmed the agreement Tuesday saying,
"We feel that they (Senior Care Group) are one of the


most competent groups we've talked to, which is
why we have agreed to finance the purchase."
Ades added that the Cabana Club property would
be developed by his group. Asked about the cottages
on the hotel property, Ades said, 'They would be the
responsibility of the new owners."
Senior Care Group's plans include an assisted liv-
ing facility in conjunction with a skilled nursing care
center and possibly a memory-impaired care facility
with some of the rooms reserved as hotel facilities
for visitors desiring access to a multipurpose care
center.
'We estimate that about 79 to 80 percent of the
structure is sound," McGuinness said. "Of course
the roof and the foundation are critical; this would
be a rebuild from the inside out."
Vaughan added, "We want to keep as much of the
original structure as possible."
McGuinness and Vaughan met with Mayor Gary
Katica and Town Manager Micah Maxwell on Mon-
day. 'They have a good track record and this could
mean as many as 500 new jobs for the area," Katica
said Tuesday.
Katica made an announcement regarding Senior
Care Group's interest in buying the property at
Tuesday nights commission meeting.
"I just want to keep this process transparent,"
Katica stated. "Ultimately it's the decision of the
parties involved."
Katica said he worries about homeowners in the
RPD and particularly nearby condo owners who
might want to sell, 'They're looking at this empty
structure with a deteriorating roof, so this type of
project could be a positive outcome for the commu-
nity."
Their agreement with KAWA, McGuinness con-
firmed, specifies they have until Jan. 4 to complete
due diligence and place a deposit on the hotel.
"We'll be on the ground the next day, ready to
work," he said.


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND City commissioners are
considering a resolution that will allow a boat
owner who rents a slip in the City Hall Marina to
install a lift at the site.
Commissioners decided Nov. 16 to move ahead
on the proposal under certain conditions.
Timothy Walker, who rents slip No. 14 at the
marina, wants to install a Deco boat lift and has
agreed to pay for permitting and construction, as
well as maintenance. He said he will leave the lift
in place if he vacates the marina.
Since the city has a submerged land lease with
the state of Florida, Anthony Pidala of the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection said a boat lift
would not present any problems for his agency as
long as the boat and lift do not extend past the
leased area.
Rick Raus of the city's Public Works Depart-
ment said a boat lift comparable to the Police De-
partment boat lift could be installed at the marina
using the same power source. The connection
cost, he said, would be $700 plus tax for labor,
conduit and wiring.
"I see lots of potential problems with this," said
Commissioner Gail Caldwell. 'There are lots of po-
tential problems on the tail end for the city. Then,
if we have somebody else come along and ask for
the same thing, what are we going to do? If the lift
breaks, we're on the hook for replacing it and
that's a problem."
"I agree with Commissioner Caldwell," said
Commissioner Alan Bildz. "We shouldn't get in the
business of boat lifts."
Mayor Bob Minning suggested an alternative.
"We could require a refundable deposit," he
said. 'That would take care of the lift if it is left in


disrepair. Or we could just put in a stipulation
that he cannot leave it. We could make that part
of the agreement."
Also, Minning said, if it's a locking lift, the city
would need a set of keys in the event of an emer-
gency or fire.
Commissioners are expected to consider the
proposal again at the Dec. 7 meeting.
In other action at the workshop, commission-
ers:
Moved forward on a resolution to approve the
Kiwanis Club of Gulf Beaches third annual Trever
Miller Mob 5K Run/1-Mile Walk on the Isle of
Capri Saturday, Feb. 5.
Moved forward on a resolution that allows the
city to enter into a cooperative funding agreement
with the Southwest Florida Water Management
District to improve stormwater discharge quality
at 99th and 93rd avenues on Sunset Beach, Sixth
Street East in Isle of Capri and Sixth Street East
in Isle of Palms. The city's 50 percent share on the
project would be $150,000.
Moved forward on a resolution to enter into an
agreement with Public Resources Management
Group to complete a five-year wastewater finan-
cial forecast and rate study at a maximum cost of
$17,900.
Moved ahead on an ordinance to update the
five-year schedule of capital improvements
through an amendment to the capital improve-
ments element of the city's comprehensive plan.
Moved forward on a resolution to amend the
city's animated changeable message signage to in-
tervals of eight seconds.
Moved forward on an ordinance that would
allow alcohol sales Sundays beginning at 10 a.m.
The current 2 a.m. closing time would remain the
same.


Redington awards bid for road work


By MELISSA LATTMAN

REDINGTON BEACH The Town Commission
awarded Keystone Excavators the bid for resurfac-
ing the town's roads Nov. 16 for a figure not to ex-
ceed $1.575 million.
The seven bids submitted ranging from $1.54
million to $1.8 million came in higher than the
budgeted figure of $1.2 million.
Public Works Director Mark Davis told the com-
mission the bids came in higher than the initial es-
timated cost because of items the engineer put in
the bid, such as new curbing throughout the town.
All of the contractors had to include all the specifi-
cations required by the engineer in their bids, he
said.
The town will pay for what it actually needs to
mill, level and resurface approximately 6.4 miles
of roads. The engineer's statement of work included
replacement of all the curbs, 215 driveway cut-
aways and about 3,000 tons of asphalt to level the
roads.
The cost of the 215 driveway cutaways is a little
over $200,000, Davis said. However, the figure
could be lower. The town may not need all of this


VOLUNTEERS, from page 1A


Big Sisters of Pinellas County.
On top of that, their volunteerism extends into
their family. A daughter volunteers at her son's
school and their older son volunteered at the
school his children attended in Palm Beach Coun-
ty.
Volunteerism has been a staple in the Arroyos'
lives and gives the couple a degree of satisfaction
only other volunteers can appreciate.
"I can't visualize our retirement without it," said
Enid. "We plan to continue as long as we have en-
ergy and good health."
"We're doing something for the community we
live in that integrates us with the people," said Luis.
Luis and Enid, who have known each other
since age 11 in Puerto Rico, moved from St. Augus-
tine to Seminole in 2000 and got involved at Semi-
nole High after one of their two sons mentioned the
county school system needed volunteers.
Enid, who retired 21 years ago after a 28-year
career with the federal government, previously vol-
unteered and later worked for 11 years at St. Au-


work such as needing to replace only some of the
curbs and not as many drives, so the cost could be
lower, town officials discussed.
Mayor Nick Simons said the Town Commission
heard from Davis on ways of potentially saving
large sums. The commission discussed various
project management scenarios to best manage the
town's interests in the project. The discussion cen-
tered around does the town need someone inde-
pendent from the contractor supervising the
project? The commission asked Simons to speak
with Davis to get his input regarding project man-
agement requirements for the town to interface with
the contractor.
Davis researched performance references of the
companies with the three lowest bids APAC
Southeast, Keystone Excavators and Lane Con-
struction. He recommended awarding the bid to the
second lowest bidder, which is Keystone.
"Keystone's references were all excellent in quali-
ty of work, quality of materials, professional and
time frame ... the town has also had a good work-
ing relationship with this contractor on at least two
previous projects with excellent results," Davis
wrote in a Nov. 10 memo to the commission.


gustine School for the Deaf and Blind.
Luis, who retired 15 years ago after a long career
in accounting, has been involved heavily with the
Pinellas Education Foundation for three years.
He works with eighth-graders to help them learn
to budget through the Finance Park program and
helps fifth-graders learn how to run a business
through Enterprise Village.
"I spend more time at the Education Foundation
(than at Seminole High) and I have different experi-
ences," Luis said. 'The staff there is great and the
environment is very pleasant with all the volun-
teers."
'We look at students as the future of our country
and I put teachers on a pedestal because they do so
much," Enid said. "This is something everyone
should try. There's so many ways we're paid by
them daily."
Luis said they often receive tokens of apprecia-
tion from students, which they treasure deeply.
'That's our pay," he said. "You feel good because
you know you did the right thing one day a week (at
the Pinellas Education Foundation). It's very enjoy-
able. Just very enjoyable."

Police beat


Man nabbed on
outstanding warrant
TREASURE ISLAND A 45-year-old Treasure Is-
land man was arrested Nov. 25 on an outstanding
warrant for possession of oxycodone.
Thomas Howard Hannon was arrested at his resi-
dence at 7801 W. Gulf Blvd., No. 8.
He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail
where bond was set at $5,000.
Three arrested
for attempted murder
PALM HARBOR Three suspects were arrested
Nov. 29 after allegedly shooting into a vehicle in
Palm Harbor, according to a Pinellas County Sher-
iffs report.
A sheriffs deputy was on duty in his marked
cruiser driving west on Tampa Road approaching
Arbor Glenn Drive in Palm Harbor at about 2:20
a.m. when he saw a blue Ford Focus traveling east
on Tampa Road at high speed. As the deputy start-
ed to make a U-turn to go after the car, it came to
an abrupt stop. The driver, Dusty Smith, 21 of New
Port Richey, told the deputy that they were being
chased and shot at by suspects in a white Chevro-
let Lumina. As Smith was telling his story, the Lu-
mina passed by east on Tampa Road and then
quickly turned south on Arbor Glenn Drive, the re-
port said.
The deputy radioed for assistance, and shortly


afterwards, the Lumina was stopped by responding
deputies at Solon Avenue and Belcher Road in
Dunedin.
The stories from the victim and the suspects are
conflicting, the report said. The victims said they do
not know the suspects and do not know why the
suspects were shooting at them, and this was com-
pletely random, the report said. The suspects claim
they are acquainted with the victims and that the
incident is drug related.
Benjamin Ducharme, 36, of Homosassa was the
front right passenger in the suspect vehicle and ad-
mitted to being the one who shot at the victims and
owning the .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun
used in the shooting that deputies found in the Lu-
mina, the report said. Amanda McElmurray, 19, of
Lecanto was the driver of the Lumina and contin-
ued to drive after the victims before, during and
after the shooting, the report said. Steven LeBlanc,
31, of Brooksville was the rear passenger who al-
legedly had knowledge of what was about to occur.
The incident remains under investigation as
deputies continue to piece together the events and
collect additional evidence.
Antonio was arrested for attempted felony mur-
der and carrying a concealed weapon. He was being
held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $100,500
bond. McElmurray was charged with attempted
felony murder and was being held at the Pinellas
County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. Ducharme
was charged with attempted felony murder and car-


trying a concealed firearm and was being held at the
Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $120,000 bond.
Serial robber arrested
OLDSMAR An Oldsmar man was arrested Nov.
24 for a string of robberies in North Pinellas County
and Clearwater, according to a Pinellas County
Sheriffs report.
James Andrews, 27, was identified as a suspect
by the sheriffs office's robbery and homicide unit
detectives, who matched the surveillance camera
photos of the suspect in the armed robberies to
photos of previous arrests of Andrews in Pinellas
County, the report said. Andrews was also identi-
fied as the person responsible for the armed rob-
beries by victims and witnesses, in several of the
cases being actively investigated by Clearwater Po-
lice detectives.
Andrews was arrested at 5 p.m. at his home, and
detectives also served a search warrant and collect-
ed undisclosed evidence linking him to the crimes.
The robberies he was charged for by the sheriffs
office were one on Sept. 9 at the Circle K, 3470 East
Lake Road, Palm Harbor; and one on Nov. 11 at
Sally's Beauty Supply, 33187 Highway U.S. 19 N.,
Palm Harbor. The robberies he was arrested for by
the Clearwater Police Department are one on Sept.
10 at Bank of America, 3000 Enterprise Road,
where there was a victim at the ATM; on Sept. 20 at
Tuesday Morning, 2561 Countryside Blvd.; on Sept.
20 at Sally's Beauty Supply, 2729 Gulf-to-Bay


Blvd.; and on Nov. 3 at Buy Best Beauty, 2510 Mc-
Mullen Booth Road.
Andrews was booked at the Pinellas County Jail
and charged with four counts of robbery with a
deadly weapon or firearm, two counts of false im-
prisonment, aggravated assault with a deadly
weapon, strong-arm robbery, two counts of robbery
with a weapon, armed kidnapping, resisting a mer-
chant's employee, and retail theft. He was being
held in lieu of $580,000 bond.

Pedestrian hit by car, survives
DUNEDIN A pedestrian was hit by a car in
Dunedin on Nov. 23 on Keene Road and Main
Street, according to a Pinellas County Sheriffs Of-
fice report.
According to Major Accident Investigation Team
deputies, at 2:20 p.m., Ariele Bever, 22, of Clearwa-
ter was driving north on Keene Road, approaching
Main Street. After going through a green light,
Bever made a right turn onto Main Street to go
east, the report said.
Terrence Fitzgerald, 62, of Dunedin had been
standing on the southeast corner of Main Street
and Keene Road, waiting to walk north across Main
Street. He stepped off the curb as Bever turned east
and he was struck by the car, hitting his head on
the windshield.
Fitzgerald was taken to Bayfront Medical Center
by helicopter with non-life-threatening injuries.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Amazing Transformations with Full-Mouth
Reconstruction
Sometimes I see smiles that no one has seen for a long time. They are hidden,
suppressed, covered and often really painful. These are troubled smiles smiles that
time, neglect or accidents have taken their toll smiles that are unattractive, decrease
self-esteem, affect overall wellness and nutrition and cause
all kinds of other health issues. Sometimes these patients
have been too embarrassed to see a dentist for fear of being
judged or criticized.
I never do that. I think these smiles deserve an extra
measure of compassion and respect. I'm just so excited
I when someone finally comes to me with a broken smile and
asks if I can fix it. Why? Because usually I can! Not just so
it looks good, but so that it functions and feels the way
nature intended it to as well. I call it full-mouth
reconstruction, but it really is rejuvenation like no other.
Like anything, nothing lasts forever. Unfortunately, this applies to our bodies and our
teeth. All of our adult teeth are usually in place before the teenage years. So as you can
see these teeth need to do the job for many decades. The good news is that people are
living longer and longer. But this means that as things wear out they should be repaired,
rebuilt, or replaced. It is only logical to understand that this extends to one's teeth.
Full-mouth reconstruction enhances the appearance of the smile and corrects
imperfections in bite position. Combining the art of cosmetic dentistry with the
technology of neuromuscular dentistry, full-mouth reconstruction lets you finally have a
smile that is both beautiful and comfortable. With the instruments and techniques of
neuromuscular dentistry we can find the ideal jaw position for comfort and aesthetics.
The treatment will often include the application of a full set of crowns and other
restorations such as veneers. But it also may utilize orthodontics, implants, and
removable dentures. This portion of the reconstruction can begin when your jaw has
finally come to its ideal position. The use of porcelain crowns and veneers repair and
raise your teeth into the optimal position and keeps them there.
And when the process is complete, that's when we celebrate the beginning of a brand
new, young, fresh and comfortable smile. It is one of the happiest moments for me as a
dentist and my patients say it can be life-changing.
Why hide your smile or live with pain another day? Call me at 727.586.1955 to
schedule a complimentary consult or visit aboutsmilesdental.com to read what our
patients are saying about us. 2260 West Bay Drive, Largo.

Toy run planned for Dec. 5
The Jim Rosenkrans Memorial Toy Run will be
held Sunday, Dec. 5, with an average of 1,500 mo-
torcycles parading through St. Petersburg, Pinellas
Park, St. Pete Beach and Pass-A-Grille Beach.
The run starts at Jim's Harley-Davidson, 2805
54th Ave. N. on St. Pete Beach.
Participants will be leaving the dealership at 10
a.m.
Every participant must furnish a new, unwrapped
toy or a $15 donation. Bring in four cans of food and
receive a commemorative drink coolie. Preregistra-
tion ends Friday, Dec. 3 with last-minute preregis-
tration ending Dec. 5 at 9 a.m. For more information
or to preregister online please visit www.jimshd.com.
The Toy Run started in 1979 where Jamie
Rosenkrans, owner, was teaching at Skyview, Rio
Vista and Woodlawn Elementary. It was then that
Jim, former owner and former St. Pete firefighter,
and Jamie decided to create a vehicle for giving back
to the community. The event has grown much since
then with the banner year's roster consisting of
2,500 people and 1,800 bikes compared to the 30
motorcycles in its inaugural year.
The event has raised more than $1 million since
its inception. The Toy Run is still a major event for
the dealership where owner Jamie Rosenkrans in-
sists that no child be without a toy on Christmas.
Jim Rosenkrans died in 1988. Since then, the Toy
Run has been renamed the "Jim Rosenkrans Memo-
rial Toy Run."

"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.

Green gifts have color


Holiday shopping is a priority
on everyone's list and garden
centers have displayed plants
that complement the traditional
holiday colors.
There are the cream colored
and red poinsettias and impa-
tiens, Christmas cactus, amaryl-
lis, narcissus, mini roses,
rosemary "trees," cyclamen, and
bunches of fragrant greens that
grow north of us.
Not only are these plants great
for interior decorating, they make
thoughtful gifts for gardeners and
those who live in condos and
apartments.
Pots of herbs that can be
placed on a windowsill will pro-
vide a useful decoration. Parsley,
sage, rosemary and thyme (what
a catchy tune) are commonly
used herbs. What could be more
tasty than roasted potatoes with
sprigs of rosemary. A couple of
tropical foliage plants will bright-
en a dark comer. African violets
can flower most of the year on a
tabletop.
A homeowner may appreciate
receiving a fruit tree or a rose
bush. If you receive a Norfolk Is-


Ruth Davies

land pine in a pot with pretty red
bows on it, please look around at
its ultimate width and height be-
fore planting it in the ground. If
kept in a pot that is upgraded
every year, it will be a lovely mov-
able feature. It won't grow out of
bounds with its roots confined.
Boston ferns in hanging bas-
kets help create a casual tropical
look and are great for a lanai or
porch. Keep them watered regu-
larly
Other gifts for gardeners in-
clude gloves, yard art, a rain
gauge, garden tools, a pH meter,
a floral painting and jewelry. A
grow box or two would be timely,
as January is the time for the
second vegetable planting in our
area.
Go green this holiday season
and enjoy your shopping experi-
ence.

Using live shrimp gives anglers more options


Weekly cold fronts will push our
fall to winter transition along much
more quickly than in weeks past.
Cooler water temperatures as
well as windy conditions have made
it difficult to pattern baitfish over the
past few days, so live shrimp have
came in handy the past few days.
The best thing about live shrimp is that
everything eats them, giving you the oppor-
tunity to hook into more crustacean minded
species such as pompano and sheepshead,
two types of fish that would be off the table
if you were solely relying on baitfish. Al-
though certain types of lures can work very
well for pompano at times, nothing catches
them more consistently than a live shrimp.
Free-lining live shrimp with an up-current
cast and letting it drift through the potential
strike zone unimpeded by the drag of the
line will allow you to fool even the wariest of
predatory feeders. For a variety of fish target
deep grass beds in 3 to 6 feet of water.


These
SFish Tales deep flats
are often
Capt. Tyson are often
Wallerstein found near
the edge of
the main
channel as
well as the many spoil islands throughout
the Intracoastal Waterway. Given the right
water clarity and tidal movement, one could
expect to hook into such species as sea
trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, pompano
and ladyfish on any given cast.
Another situation perfectly tailored for a
live shrimp is tailing redfish. Extreme low
tides will entice reds to root the bottom on
the outside edge of the flat. Getting out of
the boat and quietly stalking these spooky
feeders is a real passion for some inshore
anglers. Taking a select or even jumbo sized
shrimp and hooking it through the tail so
that the hook point isn't quite exposed will
allow you to fish the shrimp fairly weed-less,


letting you cast beyond the fish and reel it
back to it, so the sound of the bait hitting
the water doesn't spook the fish.
And last but not least would be the overall
effectiveness of a fresh shrimp on the crus-
tacean-crushing sheepshead. Drop down a
small shrimp or a piece of a larger shrimp
next to bridge fenders and pilings and you're
sure to attract the attention of this tasty
fish.
These fish often bite very light, so a light
line and just enough weight to hold bottom
will allow you to detect the strike. When the
wind blows this is one fish you can usually
target on all but the worst of days.
Until net week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
capt. i/son2 honmail.cont. To get a fish photo
in the paper, send the photo along with your
name, when and where it was caught to edi-
torial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa

Role Model students
go on college tour
Pinellas County Schools sent 45 5000 Role Model
of Excellence seniors from 14 high schools on a fall
college tour on Nov. 15. The students visited the
University of South Florida, St. Petersburg; and the
University of Central Florida, Orlando.
The students were selected based on their aca-
demic performance and desire to attend post-sec-
ondary education universities.
The universities are prepared to share information
about their academic programs, admission require-
ments, scholarships/financial aid, and extracurricu-
lar activities with the students. Students will have a
chance to tour the campus and speak with admis-
sion officers.
The 5000 Role Models of Excellence program was
created to boost the self-image, social skills and aca-
demic performance of selected males, in part, by mo-
tivating them to interact with respected and
successful men from the community. This program
matches young men who are struggling in school
with mentors who meet with them on a regular
basis.

Retired educators to meet
The South Pinellas Retired Educators Association
meets the second Thursday of each month through
May at the Piccadilly Cafeteria at 19th Avenue and
34th Street North.
The 11 a.m. meetings are open to all who have
worked in the field of education, including teachers,
support personnel and administrators.

EDITORIAL



Here to stay

It was not what some residents wanted to hear, but it was an
important message.
A panel of experts at a forum in Pinellas Park recently an-
swered residents' questions pertaining to the problem of coy-
otes making their homes in neighborhoods.
Some residents complained that coyotes had eaten cats and
that they might attack other animals, such as dogs and horses.
Basically, the experts said that coyotes are here to stay. As in
other areas where millions of dollars have been spent trying to
eradicate the predators, Pinellas County can't solve the prob-
lem.
However, residents can take steps to minimize the problems
coyotes cause.
For instance, they should not feed pets outdoors or by leaving
them outdoors.
Breanne Strepina, a wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, put it bluntly:
"Are you going to provide food for 20, 30 cats in the area? If
so, you're creating a smorgasbord for larger animals," she said.
Eliminate food sources, she said, and residents will see fewer
coyotes.
Trapping coyotes should be left to professionals. Trying to
trap a coyote in a small area, such as a homeowner's backyard,
for example, is fraught with problems, since a single coyote may
never return to the same spot.
Certainly, losing a pet as a result of a gruesome attack by a
coyote can be a shocking experience.
But, rather than looking for agencies to rid the county of coy-
otes they should heed the advice from agencies and recognize
that coyotes, love them or hate them, are part of the communi-
ty.


LETTERS

A fresh voice of reason
Editor:
I have been following with interest the coverage on the new face in
Pinellas County government politics, County Commissioner Norm
Roche. Mr. Roche is no stranger to Pinellas County government or to
us who worked with him in years past when he was a county em-
ployee. I retired from Pinellas County in June 2007 after 33 years of
public service.
Norm was elected by his co-workers to be on the Employees Advi-
sory Council. The council members act as representatives of their fel-
low employees much like a union steward. Contrary to popular belief,
most of Pinellas County's employees are not unionized. Norm was
tireless in presenting our ideas to better our workplaces to the county
administrator and our county commissioners. He took ideas present-
ed to him, diligently researched available data and made detailed,
professional presentations.
Norm will be a fresh voice of reason to help County Administrator
Bob LaSala, and his fellow county commissioners find a way to once
again make Pinellas County government the benchmark of public
service in America as we once were.

Red light cameras will cause accidents
Editor:
Clearwater Beacon heralded "red light cameras coming to town."
I'd rather have Santa Claus in his red suit- and I don't believe in him
either.
I knew it was coming but I sincerely was holding out for someone
with sense to override this dangerous money-grab ploy. Apparently,
there were two of those on the City Council. Clearwater Vice Mayor
John Doran's story of being inattentive and T- boning a car while ac-
cidentally going through a red light has no correlation to the cameras
except that maybe whoever wanted to sue him had video footage to
condemn him. It was an "accident." It's called an accident because
Jon Doran's "moment of inattention" causes an accident, not an "on
purpose." A red light camera is not going to prevent an accident like
this but it will without a doubt cause a whole slew of new ones.
You will have more accidents as people get rear-ended when people
slam on brakes so they don't go through the light. A Virginia study
found accidents increased 27 percent after red-light cameras were
put into place. In North Carolina, the study found that the cameras
did not decrease crashes but instead increased the amount and
severity of crashes. If there's a problem with an intersection, why
don't safety engineers in the field just go out and fix the timing ... add
a second or two or three between the change?
Maybe even use signal-timers like pedestrian crossing boxes so
that people know how long they have before the light turns red. Isn't
that cheaper and more sensible? I was on a city panel that discussed
this a while back and, sadly, there were a few who actually felt they
could accept a few permanent cervical spine injuries while people
learned the camera was there. Think debilitating back injury, possi-
ble paralysis, bulging disks, ruptured disks, fractures.
In my opinion, this all falls at the feet of the almighty dollar. There
are claims that we can have police out fighting crime instead of writ-
ing tickets, but yet the city says a police officer will review all the
video footage before sending out the tickets. He is not out fighting the
bad guys who are actually harming people. The cameras are out-
sourced, so who is holding them accountable? How much will it take
to hold them accountable? Money breeds contempt. So who will
make sure the city of Clearwater is getting everything they are sup-
posed to receive? Now we have to pay to have that outside
vendor/company audited. How often and at what cost? The city gets
$75 of every $158 they collect and then still has to pay the camera
vendor?
Vice Mayor John Doran said "It's just a coincidence that state law
makers get most of the money?" Somehow that coincidence is too co-
incidental. So everyone wants to make money on this "venture" and
it's OK to give the citizens the inconvenience and the increase of cer-
vical spine injuries. This is not government of the people with their
liberty and financial interests in mind.
The poor will always be among us and so will lawbreakers. You
can't give away the rights and safety of the people to control a few. I
do not want to live in a "big brother" town. Sadly, it looks like I will.

All about more money
Editor:
The Clearwater city council has voted to install red light cameras:
The Clearwater city hall mob strikes again. Studies indicate increas-
ing caution lights by a few seconds would reduce accidents at inter-
sections by 80 percent.
Of course, Clearwater officials don't care about public safety they
are only interested in more money even if it means robbing motorists.
This is the same city that has impoverished its residents with sky
high taxes and exorbitant 16 percent taxes and franchise fees on
electricity (county residents pay zero). The taxes and fees on power


bills in Clearwater are so high they would embarrass even an organ-
ized crime protection racket.

An ill-defined custom that can kill you


Hazing is one of those hallowed practices
that goes on ignored for years at a time, until
hazing kills someone. Then, and only then,
does society pay much attention.
No one knows the origin of the word "haz-
ing." At least, I couldn't find anyone who
knew. Nor has anyone written the definitive
meaning of hazing, although one Canadian
scholar has written several books about it.
There is no common denominator for haz-
ing rituals. Some involve inflicting pain and
humiliation. Others instill terror. Sleep depri-
vation is common. So are degrading insults.
Alcohol is often forced down the gullets of ini-
tiates by the senior members of the organiza-
tion. Sadism easily finds its way into hazing.
Still, much hazing is relatively harmless and
good-natured. It usually depends on who's
doing the hazing.
Many college and high school fraternities
and sororities practice hazing. So do military
units, athletic teams, street gangs and work-
places.
Why do people engage in hazing? Many
reasons. One is to weed out weaklings or the
faint of heart. If a man (or woman) cannot
swim naked for an hour in ice cold water
while blindfolded, he/she probably doesn't
deserve to be a member of the 1159th Macho
Squadron. A second reason is to confirm the
level of stupidity. Many, if not most, organiza-
tions are run by really stupid leaders. By haz-
ing newcomers, these leaders can determine
which of them are stupid enough to want to
belong. The newcomers who survive are wel-
comed into the group and proclaimed stupidly
worthy of membership.
I've undergone hazing (of sorts) three times.
The first was in a caddy shack at a golf course
in the Pocono Mountains. The veteran caddies
kept talking about "initiating" the new caddies
like me. But they never got around to it. I sus-


a


Driver's Seat

pect it was because the old hands weren't
bright enough to think up creative tortures for
us to do. But they kept us mightily on edge.
My second hazing was in September 1951
as my ship crossed the Equator after taking
part in the then current wartime disease
known as gone-to-Korea. The old sailors
shellbackss) devised a few dozen unpleasant
challenges for the newbies polliwogss) to en-
dure. Such as kissing the mustard-coated
belly of the ship's gunnery officer.
My final hazing, as a fraternity pledge, last-
ed for my full freshman year. The fraternity,
Delta Upsilon, was an enlightened group that
did not condone racial or religious discrimina-
tion, or the spooky secret-grip baloney that
many Greek outfits held sacred during the
1950s. The DU hazing was predictably
lightweight. We underwent such penny-ante
things as paddling, being forced to sing our
high school alma mater, allowing co-eds to
pour water on us from a dormitory balcony
and biting into a whipped-cream dessert that
was actually shaving cream. I deliberately
swallowed a mouthful without even reacting;
this enraged a senior member, a humorless
military-school type who had looked forward
to my gagging. It was a proud moment for me.
Years after I graduated, both the college
and the state of Pennsylvania banned all
forms of hazing. Many other states and organ-
izations have done likewise. Hazing is a crimi-
nal offense in India. In France, hazing can get
you six months in the hoosegow.


How successful these prohibitions are is
another matter.
Hazing is often hush-hush, a well-kept se-
cret, protected even by those whose stomachs
have been turned by the shenanigans im-
posed on the initiates.
In some cases hazing deaths have gone un-
reported or have been covered up. An average
of two persons a year die in the USA because
of hazing activities. It's unlikely that hazing
will ever disappear. One reason is that hazing
is so ill-defined. What is hazing to one person
or gang may be regarded as playful fun by an-
other.
Is military boot camp a form of hazing? It
could be regarded as such, if you look at the
extreme mental, physical and emotional pres-
sures that recruits are put through. Whatever
you call it, this training is aimed at preparing
the warriors for real-life combat situations
that may follow. It also weeds out recruits
who are unsuitable for service, for whatever
reason.
But military hazing can go too far. Russian
armed forces are world-renowned for the vi-
ciousness of their hazing practices. Example:
one soldier was forced to squat for hours
while he was beaten. This resulted in the loss
of his genitals and both legs.
Can hazing be considered a form of bully-
ing? I think so, and current indicators show
that Americans are getting fed up with bully-
ing in all its forms, principally in public
schools. At their roots, bullying and hazing
are un-American. Our nation was founded by
a small band of patriots whose watchwords
included "Don't tread on me." Perhaps with
time we will respond to all would-be hazing
practitioners by giving them a knuckle sand-
wich to chew on.

Don't let Congress


drive your doctor out of Medicare.


Congress must act now to prevent seniors from

losing their Medicare doctors.

Seniors have earned their Medicare and the security of knowing

they can keep seeing the doctors they trust. Unfortunately, many

seniors could lose their doctors if Congress fails to stop a 25% pay

cut before the end of the year. Congress has a responsibility to

keep doctors in the Medicare program by providing them with a

stable payment system for the next year.

Call 1-800-826-9625 and tell Congress to stop this physician pay
cut and keep doctors in Medicare.

witched" and "Flipper." Randall continues to perform A Tribute
to Sinatra with a large orchestra utilizing 01' Blue Eye's very
own original musical orchestrations by such noted arrangers
as Don Costa, Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Neal Hefti, Quincy
Jones, Billy Byers and Frank Foster. These arrangements
were bestowed to Frankie by Sinatra in February 1997, two
years before Sinatra's passing. The daughter of Dean Martin,
Deana Martin made her television debut on 'The Dean Martin
Show" in the early 1960s and quickly became a popular per-
former on stage and screen, taking part in musical and come-
dy numbers with Frank Sinatra and her father. She was a
Reprise Records recording artist and appeared on many televi-
sion shows, including "The Joey Bishop Show," "Merv Griffin"
and 'The Mike Douglas Show," as well as 'The Monkees."

By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

LARGO The Rotary Club of Largo will present Death by Chocolate
Friday, Dec. 3, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central
Park Drive.
This annual fundraiser supports local youth and empowerment ini-
tiatives. Patrons enjoy dessert samples from local restaurants and
businesses in the beautiful setting of Largo's Central Park with an an-
nual holiday light display. The event also includes live entertainment,
a silent auction and door prizes.
Annually, the event raises more than $20,000 for local youth pro-
grams.
"I am so excited about this year's event," said Jennifer McMahon,
the event chair. 'We have 26 chocolatiers this year the most we have
had in quite some time ... and 10 are new."
According to McMahon, new participants include The Melting Pot,
Sages, Old Fashion Goodness, Peace Love and Cake, Casey's Cookies,
The Sweet Spot, In-Dulj.com, Gateau O Chocolat, Wicked Tempta-
tions, and Wine Slushies. Returning chocolatiers include Celebration
Cakes, E & E Stakeout, Island Way Grill, Oak Manor, Coldstone
Creamery, PRP Wine International, Largo Summer Camps, Hampton
Inn and Suites/Holiday Inn at Central Park, Murielle Winery, JK Flow-
ers, Cakes by Design, Largo Community Center, Hampton Inn Indigo,
Business and Family Insurors and Main Street Chiropractic.
McMahon has been involved with the Death by Chocolate event for
six years.
'This is my second year as chair person," she said. 'The event is the
main fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Largo and all members are in-
volved in the event."
Aside from the knowledge that they've done something good for the
community, area restaurants and confectioners may derive additional
benefits from taking part in this annual event.
"Recognition is one other benefit," McMahon said. "I know Murielle
Winery did it last year with us and said that many that came to the
event went to there winery to purchase their Chocolate Raspberry Port
they served at the event. It is a great way to let people know where you
are at and what your product is."
If the bite-size samples of special chocolate desserts and candies
isn't enough to entice guests, the fundraiser also features door prizes
and entertainment.


'We also have a flutist and the Largo High School Madrigals as en-
tertainment," McMahon said. "And as always, champagne is served
and there is a silent auction."
This year's silent auction items are tempting, too.
'We have a lot of themed gift baskets this year with many gift certifi-
cates," McMahon said. "Many of the chocolatiers donate services or
items from their business."
For instance, McMahon said that PRP Wine International donates a
private, in-home wine tasting for eight to 10 people. Main Street Chiro-
practic has donated free massages for a year and Baystar hotel donat-
ed a free night stay at their hotel.
'There is also a wine cooler full of wine, portrait sittings and much
more," McMahon said. "Always something for everyone."
Still, it always comes back to the event's central theme: pure choco-
late decadence. McMahon said it's difficult to name a favorite with so
many delicious offerings to sample.
'Wow, everything is good," McMahon admitted. "I do look forward to
Oak Manor's display and their samplings each year. Island Way Grill
and E & E Stakeout never disappoint."
According to McMahon, a few years ago, Island Way Grill created a
Jalapeno Tequila Chocolate Mousse.
'That," she said, "I will never forget."
She also is excited about trying samples from some of the new par-
ticipants.
"I am looking forward to trying a chocolate wine slushie from Wine
Slushies that is said to taste like a fudgecicle," she said. "I had some
tasting from Wicked Temptations and Sweet Spot at their locations
and loved them. And of course, Melting Pot is an exciting addition."
Decadence aside, though, this fundraiser enables the Rotary Club of
Largo to support a variety of community programs.
Programs that have benefited from Death by Chocolate include the
Largo Library, Largo Day of Good Deeds, Largo Smuppets, Community
Tampa Bay, Explorer Post 941, Largo High School Interact, Ponce De
Leon Elementary School, Largo Middle School, Operation PAR, Part-
ners N Progress, Largo summer camps, Krug Center, Largo Outreach,
Largo Little League, Ian Tillman Foundation, Nina Harris School, Pinel-
las Education Foundation and Family Resources Youth Arts Corps.
By the numbers, the event raises more than $20,000 annually. Over

you hadn't. Guard it with your
life, Capricorn. One word could
destroy !. liiq! Travel beck-
ons.

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
Energy levels shoot through
the roof, and you accomplish
more than you have in some
time. Opportunity knocks. Re-
spond when ready, Aquarius.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
Don't think you can make a
difference? Think again, Pisces.
You have much to contribute to
a cause. A meeting with friends
reiterates that fact.

Aries
March 21 April 19
Goodness, Aries. You are one
of the most productive people
around, so don't feel bad about
taking a break. It's fine to cut
yourself some slack now and
then.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
Creativity abounds, Taurus,
and you outperform expecta-
tions. A short road trip over the
weekend satisfies your thirst for
adventure and meets a need.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
Trust your instincts, Gemini.
They are right on. A project
comes to a riveting conclusion,
and you get your piece of the pie.
A deadline approaches.

Cancer
June 22 July 22
Don't read more into a situa-
tion than is there, Cancer. A rel-
ative's lack of direction is just the
tip of the iceberg. Help them only
if they genuinely want to change.

Leo
July 23 August 22
Steer clear of office politics this
week, Leo. Keep your nose to the
grindstone and follow through
with everything that you do. A
special occasion draws near.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
Oh my, Virgo. You have forgot-
ten how to have fun. A blast from
the past changes that. A memo
sheds some light on a mystery.
Proceed with caution.

Libra
September 23 October 22
What you dream today, Libra,
becomes reality tomorrow. You
have the magic touch. A rising
star at work makes you an offer
you can't refuse.

Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You may have an inside view,
but that doesn't entitle you to de-
mand more from those involved,
Scorpio. Relax a little. All will get
done in due time.

Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You must spell out your needs
and expectations, or they will not
be met. Be crystal clear, Sagittar-
ius. Your bank account receives
a much-needed boost.

Opening this week

'All Good Things' combines a love story with a murder mystery


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'All Good Things'
Genre: Romance and thriller
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, Frank Langella, Lily Rabe and
Philip Baker Hall
Director: Andrew Jarecki
Rated: R
Inspired by the most notorious missing person's case in New York
history, "All Good Things" is a love story and murder mystery set
against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s.
The drama portrayed in Andrew Jarecki's film was inspired by the
story of Robert Durst, scion of the wealthy Durst family. Durst was
suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in
1982 and was never found. The original script was developed by An-
drew Jarecki, Marc Smerling, and Marcus Hinchey and written by
Hinchey and Smerling.

'The Warrior's Way'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Tony Cox, Kate Bosworth, Nick Sampson and
Ziyi Zhang
Director: Sngmoo Lee
Not rated
The world's greatest swordsman abandons his warrior clan to start
a new life in the American Badlands in 'The Warrior's Way," a visually
dazzling modern martial arts adventure with stunningly choreo-
graphed fight sequences and gravity-defying stunts.
After a lifetime of training in martial arts and swordsmanship, Yang
(Jang Dong Gun) has eliminated all but one of his clan's enemies an
infant whose smile instantly melts his heart. Unwilling to kill her and
unable to protect her from his own deadly tribe, Yang takes the baby
girl and flees, planning to seek refuge with an old friend living in Lode,

a frontier town in the American West.
He arrives to find that his friend has died and the once-thriving Gold
Rush town is in shambles, inhabited only by a few dozen eccentrics in-
cluding Lynne (Kate Bosworth), a beautiful, spirited knife thrower-in-
training, and Ron, a worn-out drunk (Geoffrey Rush). In order to make
a safe home for the child far from the reach of his murderous clans-
man, Yang decides to stay on as the town's new laundryman, sealing
his sword for good.
Yang unexpectedly finds a kindred spirit in Lynne. Orphaned by a
horrifying act of brutality, Lynne has spent 10 years plotting revenge
against her attacker, the Colonel (Danny Huston). While teaching Yang
to run the laundry and look after the baby, she discovers his talent for
swordplay and begs him to tutor her in martial arts.
In the midst of Lode's annual Christmas celebration, the Colonel
and his renegade gang return and threaten to destroy the town. Know-
ing that Lynne will do everything in her power to exact revenge on the
Colonel, Yang reluctantly unsheathes his sword, fully aware that the
ring of its blade will immediately reveal his location.

CHOCOLATE, from page 1 B
the last 14 years, more than
$275,000 has been raised.
That's pretty sweet, in terms
of enhancing the community.
McMahon is proud of past
achievements and firmly be-
lieves this year's event will be
equally successful.


"I personally think this year's
chocolatier lineup is the best it
has been," said McMahon, "so I
can not wait. I don't think peo-
ple will be disappointed either."
Death by Chocolate tickets
are $20 in advance and $25 at
the door. Call 587-6793 or
