Lengthy standoff ends with arrest

Deputies charge 18-year-old with 3 counts of aggravated assault


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Family members
and friends were relieved Dec. 13
when 18-year-old Jonathan Brein-
gan emerged from a home un-
scathed following a 14-hour
standoff with Pinellas County Sher-
iffs deputies.
Breingan was charged with three
counts of aggravated assault follow-
ing a series of events that began
about 8 p.m. on Dec. 12.
After a 6 a.m. tear gas volley
failed to push Breingan out of the
home at 10866 72nd Ave., family
members began to fear the worst.
"He's not a violent kid," said
Breingan's sister, Allyson Breingan.
"He's good-hearted and sweet. He
just sometimes doesn't make good
decisions and hangs out with the
wrong people."
"He's just a kid," said Breingan's
grandfather, Don Breingan of Semi-
nole. 'This has been hard to deal
with. We'e been up all night."

The elder Breingan said the tear
gas volley sounded like rifle shots,
which led to thoughts that his
grandson may have been injured.
'That's my fear," said Don Brein-
gan, who criticized the Sheriffs Of-
fice for not allowing him to try to
talk his grandson out of the home.
"I don't know what's going on. They
won't give us any details."
The case unfolded when the sus-
pect became engaged in a verbal al-
tercation with three individuals
traveling in a Chevy El Camino. The
argument initially began over
whether or not the vehicle had
stopped at a stop sign.
Deputies say Breingan ap-
proached the vehicle and struck one
of the persons inside the vehicle. He
then retreated into his home, armed
himself with a gun and came back
out and fired a round at the individ-
uals in the vehicle. According to
deputies the suspect and the

Largo considers homeless facility plan
LARGO City commissioners said Dec. 7 they would consider a re-
quest for funding of a facility for the homeless at the annex to the
county jail off 49th Street, but they have some concerns about its im-
pact on Largo.
St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster told commissioners he plans to ask
the city for $25,000 to $50,000 to help finance the facility, where men
and women may stay and have access to food, toilets and showers. It's
initial capacity would be 250 people, who will be free to come and go.
This initiative is being supported by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Of-
fice and the city of St. Petersburg. Plans are for the facility, called
Pinellas Safe Harbor, to open in January.
'What we are trying to do is give people an option to sleeping on the
sidewalk," Foster said. 'This is not the Taj Mahal. This is not going to
create new homes. What this does it's a step above a cardboard box
on a street comer."
Among Mayor Pat Gerard's concerns, though, was that local govern-
ments would put resources into the project this year and "it's a perma-
nent thing."
'We start this year and it's going to go on for years and years and
years," she said. "And that's money we would not be spending on fami-
ly shelters and other sorts of homeless issues."
However, Gerard who asked that the proposal be put on the agen-
da also said that it is a better alternative than taking people to jail.
She said the capacity of the existing shelters is "no where near
what's needed at this point because the problem is getting worse as
people are unemployed longer and homes are being foreclosed on."
Commissioner Curtis Holmes told Foster that his explanation
changed his mind on the merits of Safe Harbor, but he expected to get
phone calls.
'That phone call's going to say Foster dumped his panhandlers on
Tampa and now he's dumping his homeless on Largo," he said.
Among city officials' concerns are that because of traffic on 49th
Street more accidents involving pedestrians will occur.
Though Police Chief John Carroll said the area is not in the jurisdic-
tion of the police department, he said "it's right on the edge."
"So we are paying attention for sure," he said.

Man Goes "TOAD-AL" at High School Reunion
BEXAR COUNTY- After using Thera-Gesic on aching joints,
Tom W. attended last Friday's reunion where, according to 5 amused and
concerned classmates, he went TOAD-AL. He squatted, extended both
arms to the ground, arched his back and did his best to hop numerous times
while croaking.
When asked to explain his behavior, he painlessly replied,
"None of your dang business!"

Officials also said plans for Pinellas Safe Harbor continue to evolve.
"It's a work in progress," Gerard said. 'The closer they get to opening
the more changes are made because there are a lot of practical consid-
erations."
Commissioners asked City Manager Mac Craig to see if funding is
available for the proposal. They also may tour the facility.
According to the Safe Harbor's budget proposal, the facility will pri-
marily serve three populations:
Chronic offenders, many of whom may be homeless, including in-
toxicated individuals who are not accepted by other homeless shelters
and those persons who are often arrested for city ordinance violations
and misdemeanors,
Persons recently released from the Florida Department of Correc-
tions. Foster said that would be a "small component" of the population
makeup at the facility.
Persons recently released from the Pinellas County Jail.
"Repeatedly arresting chronic offenders to address the issues associ-
ated with them living on the street causes a strain on the criminal jus-
tice system and is a very expensive solution to a social problem," the
proposal says.
Between December 2005 and September 2010, one homeless per-
son was arrested 74 times for city ordinance violations and misde-
meanors, resulting in his incarceration at the Pinellas County Jail for
544 days. The individual's incarceration cost the jail alone more than
$68,000, which does not include costs to the State Attorney's Office,
the Clerk of Court, the Public Defender's Office, the arresting agency or
the court system.
People arrested on warrants issues or failure to appear could be "di-
verted to the facility at a savings of$100 a day to the sheriffs (office),"
Foster said.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said as long as "we are aware of
what's going on and we are proactive with the sheriff and St. Pete and
everybody that's doing this, it may be seamless."
"For a lot of homeless to get there, they are probably going to be
brought in by a police officer," she said.
Commissioner Woody Brown said he was encouraged by that figure
and the savings to the jail and judicial system.
"I'm also encouraged as an option to being in jail," he said.
He asked Carroll if the project would be a savings to the police de-
partment. Though it wouldn't be a direct savings, Carroll said it could
result in some long-term solutions and indirect cost savings.

"Maybe we won't be running on so many man-down calls with the
fire department," he said.
It might provide some indirect savings in paperwork on certain ar-
rests, he said
He said that having the homeless at one location might be more effi-
cient for charitable organizations that want to provide help to them.
The annex has four pods, and each pod can sleep 150 people, Foster
said.

Red light cameras approved on trial basis
CLEARWATER- The City Council voted 3-2 to install red light cam-
eras at 11 of the city's most dangerous intersections. However, none of
the eight citizens who spoke at the Dec. 2 meeting favored the plan.
Two even called it "highway robbery," and another warned the council
members that a vote in favor of cameras would "come back to you on
election day."
Their objections fell into three general categories: The cameras are a
moneymaking scheme to fatten city and state coffers in these hard
times, the cameras are an unconstitutional intrusion on motorists'
right to privacy, and the cameras will cause more accidents than they
prevent.
Vice Mayor John Doran has been pushing for red light cameras
since he accidentally ran a red light and broadsided another vehicle in
2008. But his City Council colleagues kept telling him that the time
wasn't right. Until now. A recent state law authorizes cities to install
the cameras, and the specifications of the approved cameras will be re-
leased by the end of this year.
The new law authorizes cities to contract with vendors to install and
maintain the cameras, at an average cost of $4,700 per camera per
month. The city would get $75 from each $158 ticket issued and the
state would get the rest. But the city would have to pay the vendor
from its share.
Police Chief Tony Holloway said that red light runners caught by a
camera would actually get a bargain because it is considered a non-
moving offense, so the $158 fine carries no points against the driver's
license. But the same motorist being ticketed by a live cop for the same
offense would get a $264 fine and four points.
Paul Bertels, head of the city's Traffic Engineering Department, said
that there is nothing sneaky about the cameras because each intersec-
tion with a camera will have a 30-inch by 48-inch "freeway-size" sign
warning motorists of its presence.

BIG-C hears bleak news about renourishment funding


By BOB McCLURE
BELLEAIR BEACH Indian Shores Town Councilor Bill Smith told
members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council Dec. 8 that the
future of the state's beach renourishment program is not looking good.
Smith, who acts as the BIG-C's coordinator of information on beach-
related issues, said declining state revenue and budget cuts could be
the end of the program.
"It's not a question if the Florida beach program can escape the
knife," Smith said. 'The question is can it survive?"
The program received $16.5 million in funding in fiscal year 2010
and another $5.5 million to maintain the Florida Department of
Beaches and Coastal Systems, a subsidiary of the state's Department
of Environmental Protection.
Smith said declining state revenue from documentary stamps and
proposed personnel cuts by incoming Gov. Rick Scott don't bode well
for the renourishment program.
Despite the bad news, Smith said the scheduled first phase of the
Sand Key renourishment project is scheduled to get under way in
June or July, pending permits from the DEP.
The project will renourish beaches from Sand Key south to Indian
Rocks Beach, ending at a spot between Sixth and Seventh avenues.
In an e-mail to Smith, Andy Squires, coastal manager for the coun-
ty's Department of Engineering and Environmental Services, said the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requested and received a $13 million
allocation in emergency funds to kick off the 8.7-mile Sand Key proj-


ect.
He said fiscal year 2011 state funding for the project was set but
federal funding would not be available, which has forced the two-
phase approach to the project.
If money is available in fiscal year 2012, the second phase, which
extends from Indian Rocks Beach south to John's Pass, will be com-
pleted.
Meantime, Squires said, the Upham Beach T-Head groin repair
work has begun by Gator Dredging.
The project is designed to maintain the beach and increase the in-
terval between nourishment projects by reducing the amount of sand
that disappears through normal erosion. By doing so, the cost of fu-
ture renourishment projects will be less.
The contract calls for the work to be completed by March 19.
In other action, Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence reported that
the language in an agreement between Pinellas County and beach
communities for Gulf Boulevard Beautification funding is still being
worked out.
Treasure Island and Indian Rocks Beach have expressed an inter-
est in bonding against the future allocations but to do so, bonding
agencies want to see a commitment from the county to pay the funds
to the towns.
'The county is not giving a full commitment to pay the funds to the
cities so we can bond against it," said Treasure Island Mayor Bob
Minning.
'The fact that it says the funds have to be appropriated each year,


nobody is going to go for it," said Clearwater City Councilor George
Cretekos. "It needs to read the money will be available, not appropriat-
ed."
Lawrence said he doesn't see any problems.
"It's not a roadblock," Lawrence said. "(Pinellas County Director of
Public Works/Transportation) Peter Yauch has his marching orders
from the elected officials. But from phone conversations I've had with
him, he wants this to work."
Lawrence said it's just a matter of time before all the details are
worked out.
"I'm confident," he said. "If they (county officials) had come back
haggling over the numbers, I'd be concerned. It may turn out nobody
will bond against it. If that's the case, (the current language) is not a
problem."
The current agreement calls for the 11 beach communities to receive
$35 million in Penny for Pinellas funds over a seven-year period begin-
ning in 2013.
The beach communities say they want the time frame moved back
to five years, beginning in 2011. Funds have to be used for projects re-
lated to upgrades to Gulf Boulevard.
The allocations per community are as follows:
Clearwater, $6.7 million; Belleair Beach, $2.9 million; Indian Rocks
Beach, $4.1 million; Indian Shores, $4 million; Redington Shores, $1.7
million; North Redington Beach, $1.2 million; Redington Beach, $1.6
million; Madeira Beach, $3.3 million; Treasure Island, $3.8 million;
and St. Pete Beach, $5.7 million.

Treasure Island considers



bike ban on boardwalk


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND Public vs. private.
That seems to be the issue involving a proposed
ban of bicycles on a private boardwalk owned by
the Lands Ends Community Association.
The boardwalk stretches around three sides of
the condominium located at 7500 Bayshore Drive
on the south end of Sunset Beach. The structure is
open to residents and the public.
In a letter to City Manager Reid Silverboard,
LECA president Dan Sury said city signage at the
entrance of the boardwalk was recently replaced
and the new signage does not include a bicycle re-
striction as the previous signs did.
Sury went on to request a restriction on bicycles
on the boardwalk "whether it be a new ordinance or
some other administrative method."
He said the east and south portions of the board-
walk are 46 to 51 inches in width.
'We feel that allowing bicycles on the boardwalk
is an accident waiting to happen and ask that the
city consider putting that restriction back in some
manner as expeditiously as possible."
Silverboard said City Attorney Maura Kiefer
needs to look into the matter, to see if the city can
ban bicycles.
"Generally, municipalities don't get involved in
the patrolling of private property," Kiefer said.
'There are exceptions. On some private roads the
owner can request police to enforce those areas.
But this is truly a private property and I don't think


the city has any need to get involved. It's like a pri-
vate parking lot in a shopping center."
Commissioner Alan Bildz, who represents the
area, said he would be in favor of a bicycle ban.
'When it's open to the public, it seems to me it's
no longer private property," Bildz said. "I've been on
that boardwalk quite a few times and it's not wide
enough for a bicycle. I would be in favor of the ban."
Bildz said he wanted city staff to check to see if
the boardwalk is part of a city easement. If it is, the
city could have jurisdiction.
Commissioners agreed to discuss the matter fur-
ther in the future.
In other action, commissioners:
Moved forward on a proposed ordinance to cre-
ate a 10-year extension on the city's franchise
agreement with Progress Energy. The agreement
allows Progress Energy to do business in the city.
The city receives a 6 percent franchise fee each
year in return. Last year it amounted to about
$770,000 in revenue. Mayor Bob Minning asked
that Progress Energy agree to remove abandoned
utility poles in the city, which Progress Energy
spokeswoman Gail Simpson said would not be a
problem. Minning also asked for upgrades to rusty
transformers in the city but Simpson said that
would likely not happen. "We don't usually up-
grade rusty transformers because they're still func-
tional," Simpson said. "We replace leaky
transformers. We have a lot of transformers but
we'll be happy to look at (the rusty transformers) if
there's an aesthetics issue."


City, state officials dedicate new John's Pass Bridge


By BOB McCLURE

A crowd of about 200 bundled up for cool tem-
peratures Dec. 11 to take part in the dedication
and ribbon cutting of the new $77 million John's
Pass Bridge.
The event brought together a strong cast of
government and business leaders from Madeira
Beach, Treasure Island and other nearby commu-
nities, to officially open the structure.
Construction on the Florida Department of
Transportation project began in January 2006
and was completed in September. Traffic is cur-
rently estimated at 17,000 cars per day.
It is the third bridge to span the pass, following
others that were constructed in the late 1920s
and early 1970s.
"I'm told this one is supposed to last 75 years,"
said Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning. "So it's
going to outlast all of us here today."
Madeira Beach Mayor Pat Shontz said the new
bridge represents another major step in the histo-
ry of John's Pass.
"We've come a long way since that first bridge
in 1927," said Shontz. "It was wood, the pilings
were wood and it had a curve in the middle. So it
was very exciting."
She said the second bridge was dedicated in
1971 and it lasted 39 years.
"Unfortunately," Shontz said, "it created a lot of
traffic jams."
Don Skelton, Superintendent of District 7 for
FDOT, said more frequent openings on the previ-
ous bridge led to regular traffic backups onto
Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach and Treasure
Island.


The previous bridge had an opening that was
60 feet wide and the height from water to the
bridge was 21 feet. Due to currents, many boats
scraped the pilings going through, he said.
The new bridge has a center opening 100 feet
in width and has a center peak that is about 30
feet from the surface of the water, which is ex-
pected to result in fewer bridge openings.
'This project goes back 12 years," said Skelton.
"We were spending a lot of money maintaining
the (previous) bridge. We identified the problems
and found we needed to move quickly on a new
bridge."
He said a higher bridge would have taken the
north and south lanes past the cutoffs to existing
businesses, such as John's Pass Village and
Gators on the Pass, which is why the new bridge
was not designed taller than it is.
The bridge was designed by New York-based
Parsons Brinckerhoff and constructed by Flatiron
Construction Corp. of Firestone, Colo. Tampa Bay
Engineering was the construction engineering
firm.
Flatiron Project Manager John Couture said
his company hired 86 people locally to work on
the project at its high point and, combined with
other Flatiron employees, there were 150 to 200
on the job at various times.
"Our biggest difficulty was working underwa-
ter," Couture said. "Due to the currents, the
foundation work was more difficult than most
other bridge projects. It was a challenge to stage
the equipment and maintain marine access."
More than 5,800 tons of steel and more than
14,000 cubic yards of concrete went into the con-
struction.

Fire department consolidation


under consideration in Madeira


By WAYNE AYERS

MADEIRA BEACH An agreement to possibly
consolidate the fire departments of Madeira Beach
and Treasure Island is being worked out.
The Madeira Beach Commission gave an approval
for City Manager W.D. Higginbotham to come up
with an arrangement that would, in Higginbotham's
words, "enable the two departments to function as
one." The topic was on the Dec. 7 workshop agenda.
At issue is the departments' rating by the state
Insurance Services Office, which affects the insur-
ance rates of residents and businesses. The ISO
scores fire departments based on categories that in-
clude equipment, training, communications sys-
tems and personnel. All categories except personnel
take into account a mutual aid agreement among
the county's various fire departments.
So, for example, a department that had no ladder
truck would be credited if another nearby depart-
ment did. However, the ISO rates each department's
staffing individually, and requires at least four fire-
fighters respond to every call.
The Madeira Beach Fire Department does not
have the personnel to meet that requirement, but
has committed to paying firefighters overtime to do
so, Higginbotham explained.
The ISO is issuing new fire ratings next year, and
the Madeira Beach department wants to maintain
its "4" score, or possibly improve to a "3," Higgin-
botham said. To do so, the department will have to
obtain more funding to pay overtime expenses, or
hire additional personnel.
A merger of some sorts with Treasure Island
would create a "two-station department," assuring
that units from both communities respond to a call,
Madeira Beach fire Chief Bill Mallory said. So even
two firefighters on each engine would meet the four
firefighter per call requirement, he said.
Ironically, the required response is already being
met through the county's mutual aid agreement,
but that does not count for ISO purposes, Higgin-
botham noted.
He said an agreement that would allow the
Madeira Beach and Treasure Island departments to
function as one department "is clearly the most effi-
cient and economical way to go."
Maintaining or improving the department's ISO
rating would benefit both city residents and busi-
nesses through lower insurance rates, Higginboth-


am added.

New buildings must be elevated
Requiring buildings and residences to be built
two feet above the flood plain would comply with
FEMA regulations and lower flood insurance rates,
Community Development Director Paula Cohen told
the commission.
FEMA compliant properties are eligible for flood
insurance discounts, she explained. Maximum
height for the structures would remain 30 feet, she
said.
That would result in less occupancy space, Com-
missioner Nancy Oakley pointed out. She recom-
mended allowing builders to start as high as they
want, and then add the 30 feet building height.
Commissioner Steve Kochick disagreed.
"Suppose someone wants to go up 10 feet (to
build)," he said. "If they can save money by a higher
height, some businesses will want to go as high as
they can."
The commission agreed with a proposal by Vice
Mayor Terry Lister that a minimum of two feet up to
four be allowed for the flood elevation. The maxi-
mum overall height would be that measurement
plus 30 feet.
The commission's recommendation will go to the
Planning Commission for consideration.

Density plan to aid
tourist development
Larger developments could result from a proposal
to permit developers to transfer density rights from
an adjoining property.
The proposed ordinance would allow neighboring
properties to consolidate all of their development
rights on one property, Cohen said. Overall density
would not change, but more development would
occur on the receiving parcel, while there would be
less or nothing on the other, she said.
The plan is intended to spur hotel/motel, rather
than condo development, Cohen said, and it would
be offered only to developers of tourist units. An
added benefit to the community would be the cre-
ation of open spaces on the unused parcels and
view corridors on Gulf Boulevard.
The projects would not require state or county ap-
proval, Cohen said, assuring local control of the pro-
cess.


STANDOFF, from page 1A


persons in the vehicle are known to each other
through possible gang association.
Breingan then retreated into the home and barri-
caded himself initially with three other persons.
Those three persons ultimately exited the home,
leaving the suspect alone inside the residence.
The SWAT Team was called to respond to the
scene and over several hours attempted to get
Breingan out of the residence, through verbal com-
mands, attempts to establish phone communication
and the use of teargas.


Breingan, however, did not comply and for hours
refused to cooperate with law enforcement.
The SWAT Team later made entry into the home
where Breingan was found unarmed in a bedroom
closet covered with blankets and clothing. He sur-
rendered at about 11 a.m.
Breingan was arrested for three-counts of aggra-
vated assault and one-count of simple battery. He
was medically cleared at the scene and subsequent-
ly transported to the Pinellas County Jail.
Following the arrest, Breingan admitted to shoot-
ing at the persons in the vehicle. Deputies are in the
process of attempting to recover the gun.

TREASURE ISLAND Police are searching for the
thieves who broke into a car Dec. 8 and stole more
than $3,500 worth of personal property.
According to a police report, a green 2004 Chrysler
van was broken into about 1 a.m. in the 100 block of
106th Avenue.
Items taken included a pair of Footjoy golf shoes, a
blue Dell Studio laptop computer, Ping golf bag and a
set of Ping Rapture golf clubs.
Police said the vehicle's rear passenger window
was found open.

Transient arrested
on outstanding warrant
TREASURE ISLAND A 51-year-old transient was
arrested by police on an outstanding warrant Dec. 11
in the 1200 block of Gulf Boulevard.
Kenneth Ray Massey was taken into custody on a
Pinellas County warrant for being on the beach after

later released.

Fire destroys home in
unincorporated Largo
LARGO Detectives are investigating a Dec. 12
residential fire at 1263 20th Ave. SW in unincorpo-
rated Largo.
Deputies responded to the fire at the private resi-
dence about 1:40 a.m. Dec. 12, according to a report
from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
According to detectives, when George Bugarin, 34,
put out a fire pit in the front yard of the residence
Saturday night, he removed a piece of firewood from
the pit that he thought had not heated and placed it
back into a pile of wood next to a wooden door of the
home. He then went inside the home to retire for the
evening.
A short time later, the family smelled smoke. When
they went into the garage, which is a converted room,
they saw the fire just outside the home. The family
exited the residence and attempted unsuccessfully to
put the fire out with a garden hose.
Emergency Medical Services arrived and trans-
ported both Bugarin and his mother, Diane Bugarin,


63, to Largo Medical Center as a precaution for treat-
ment of non-life-threatening injuries associated with
smoke inhalation. Both were treated and released.
Gary Webb, 58, was not injured.
Detectives have deemed the fire to be accidental in
nature. The home is a total loss. The American Red
Cross responded to assist the family.

Palm Harbor couple
arrested for contempt
CLEARWATER- Court Security deputies arrested
a couple for contempt of court about 8:54 a.m. Dec.
11 after the two became upset by the decision of a
judge during a child dependency hearing.
According to Pinellas County sheriffs deputies, the
couple was appearing before Judge Patrick K. Cad-
dell, when Matthew Ross, 37, stepped out of the
main hearing area and slung the swing gate back
with such force that it slammed and ricocheted on
the divider.
The judge ordered him held in contempt. As court
security deputies approached to arrest him, Ross did
not stop and continued on through the gallery and
into the vestibule. Deputies assisted him on the
ground. Ross suffered a minor injury to his head and
was transported to Northside Hospital for treatment
of non-life-threatening injuries.
Deputies said when Lisa Ross, 33, saw that her
husband was being arrested she rushed him and the
deputies in an attempt to interfere with the arrest.
When deputies ordered her to stop, she continued
flailing her arms and legs. She was assisted to the
ground. She was not injured.
Matthew Ross was arrested for contempt of court
and resisting arrest with violence.
Lisa Ross was arrested for contempt of court and
obstruction of justice.

Deputies investigating
accidental shooting
DUNEDIN A Dunedin man, who accidentally
shot himself while cleaning his gun Dec. 9, is recov-
ering from his injuries, according to the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office.
Deputies assigned to the north district station in
Dunedin responded to the call about 9:20 a.m. at the
Dunedin home. According to the sheriffs report,


Teddy Allen Palinkas, 53, was cleaning his semi-au-
tomatic Taurus .380 when it went off, shooting him
in the upper right torso. Palinkas reportedly told
deputies he did not realize there was one round still
in the chamber.
Palinkas was flown to Bayfront Medical Center in
St. Petersburg with what appeared to be non-life-
threatening injuries. The investigation continues.
Missing Dunedin woman
found safe in Clearwater
CLEARWATER- Pinellas County Sheriffs Office
reported Dec. 9 that a missing Dunedin woman had
been found safe in Clearwater.
Marce Irene Fox, 86, was reported missing about
8:30 a.m. when she disappeared after accompanying
her ex-husband to the Bay Area Heart Center, 5395
Park St. N., Seminole.
Fox had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's
and early stages of dementia and considered endan-
gered. A silver alert was issued giving Fox's descrip-
tion and the silver Acura she was driving.
Sheridon Barham, 43, saw a report about the
missing woman with her picture on a local news In-
ternet site. He spotted Fox when he was driving in
the area of Hercules and Sunset Point Road in Clear-
water.
Barham followed her vehicle and called 911. Clear-
water police responded and stopped Fox at the inter-
section of State Road 590 and McMullen Booth Road.
Fox was reportedly in good condition and told sher-
iffs deputies that she was doing some Christmas
shopping.

Pedestrian struck by car, dies
CLEARWATER A pedestrian who was hit by a car
while crossing Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard on Dec. 8 died
from his injuries, according to a Clearwater Police re-
port.
The vehicle was going west in the curb lane, and
the pedestrian ran across Gulf-to-Bay from the
south, not in a crosswalk, and was hit by the vehicle.
The victim, John Nedel, 57, was taken by helicopter
to Bayfront Medical Center where he was pro-
nounced dead at 7:40 p.m. Alcohol is not believed to
be a factor with the driver, Juan Vazquez-Dezha, 32,
of Clearwater. However, he was charged with not
having a valid driver's license.


Inmate death under investigation
CLEARWATER Robbery/Homicide Unit detec-
tives are investigating the death of a Pinellas County
Jail inmate. Detectives responded to the jail to inves-
tigate about noon on Thursday, Dec. 2.
According to detectives, Myrvin Hagan, 58, was
playing checkers when he grasped his chest and col-
lapsed. Detention deputies performed CPR until
Emergency Medical Services responded. The inmate
was then transported to a local hospital where he
was pronounced dead at 12:21 p.m.

Police say murder
suspect in Mexico
CLEARWATER- Clearwater Police homicide detec-
tives are looking for Eustacio Muthe, 21, on a war-
rant for first degree murder, according to a police
report.
Jason Henderson, then 16, was shot several times
on July 9 and died at his home, the report said. De-
tectives believe that Muthe fled to Mexico following
the murder. Motive is unclear, although property was
stolen from the residence, the report said.
Anyone with information on Muthe (whose last
known address was in Clearwater) is asked to con-
tact the Clearwater Police Department Homicide Tip
Line at 562-4422.

Police make several drug arrests
LARGO Over the past two months, several signif-
icant diversion cases involving narcotics have been
brought by Largo police to the Pasco-Pinellas State
Attorney's Office.
A total of 46 counts of doctor shopping and 48
counts of trafficking in oxycodone were included,
Largo police said.
Among the suspects arrested was William Fralin,
41, of Largo who has a significant history of burglary
and narcotics sales in Largo. Fralin was arrested by
undercover detectives for sale and possession of oxy-
codone. A pharmacy alert was sent on Fralin and ad-
ditional charges of doctor shopping and trafficking in
oxycodone were developed. Fralin will score prison
time if found guilty of any of the listed charges, police
said.
He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail under
a $42,500 bond.

Rashes
By Dr. C. Hammoud Ph.D.
m I had terrible Acne for 3 years and tried products with Benzoyl Peroxide, Aloe Vera
and others. After 4 days taking the Bell natural product #60 it started to clear up my skin.
My skin changed from terrible to beautiful. Mylene Theriault, 19, Sorel-Tracy QC
m In 2 days my son's face completely cleared up of acne. My son is 15 and suffered
for 3 years. We used many products like laser, Neem, that did not work or burned his
skin. Veronica Marden, Seminole, TX m Unbelievable acne free beautiful skin
Last couple of years I had acne and tried every product and antibiotics. Results with #60
were unbelievable. Thanks for giving me beautiful skin and my self-esteem. Nelisa
Royer, 28, Doral, FL m Within 6 days eczema cleared up completely. I believe #60
addresses the cause internally instead of the symptoms. Latifa Boutshik, 43, North York,
ON m I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Last 5 years I have stunned
every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60,
I've never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing
up. I'm speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Jessica
Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC mAll statements made on the Bell website are sent
by delighted users. All are real people. Most have listed phone numbers and can be
called for advice. No money is paid to them. Their reward is the relief they are getting.
All say #60 works within days not months, not years. It's more effective than what they
used before. It is less expensive (some acne suppliers ship monthly and charge monthly,
which may amount to large sums yearly). No side effects were reported on #60.


Guaranteed better than all
others they used say dozens
of delighted users with full
names and towns on the Bell
website. Works by cleansing
blood inside ratherthan attacking
skin from the outside and leaving
the actual cause untreated. Here
are a few examples:


SNORING? SLEEP APNEA?

Essure is a gentle, hormone-free birth control procedure that frees you from worrying
about unplanned pregnancy-and birth control-for good. Performed in our office in less
than an hour, Essure offers women what no other permanent birth control option does: a
proven solution that doesn't require cutting, going under general anesthesia, or slowing
down to recover. Trusted by women and doctors since 2002, you can rely on Essure to
let you worry less, and enjoy every moment more.


Let's talk about whether Essure is right for you.

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


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


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


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

Bury banana peels in rose roots to get huge blooms


A banana a day keeps high blood pressure away. Kind of like the
apple thing and the doctor.
One banana provides approximately 20 percent of a body's needed
potassium. The rest can come from
milk, meat, vegetables and other
fruit.
Say there are four people in the GEehl
family. That's a lot of bananas. If qff l l/r
you grow roses and want to see Ruth Davies
huge blooms, bury the banana
peels so the roots can grow into
them.
True confession sometimes I'm in a rush and just throw the peel
under the bush.
Roses are fairly easy to grow in our area. When I moved here, I
couldn't believe a rose bush could handle the heat and humidity, but

with the right graft stock (Fortuniana), they do very well. I've had the
Oklahoma variety growing for seven years. Ah, a true red rose and with
scent.
December is a good time to prune rose bushes. I like to keep one or
two strong branches so I have continuous bloom. The others are cut
approximately a foot high just above a node that is facing out. This en-
courages a new branch to form growing on the outside of the older
branches. Fertilize every month all year for healthy plants.
Amazingly, my Christmas cactus is budded and will probably be
open before the holiday. For years, they started blooming at Thanks-
giving.
They bloom with a combination of 14 to 16 hours of darkness and
temperatures below 65. I read they don't like 50 degree temps. Oops,
they're sure sitting in nature's refrigerator now.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Finding the Right Doctor To Care For Your Smile
That may sound like an obvious title for an article all about myself But I seriously
think it is an important question. I know some folks who choose their medical care
by looking for the most appealing ad in the yellow pages. I suggest a little more
research, especially when you are looking for a health-centered or cosmetic dentist.
Here is a quick checklist you could look through when selecting your dentist.
Be direct. Ask the doctor to discuss experience, training and credentials with you.
Don't be intimidated. This is really important because cosmetic dentistry is not a
board-certified specialty. This means that any dentist can call him or herself a
cosmetic dentist with no more than basic dental school education. There is something
to say for years of experience and training.
Be certain that the before and after photos belong to
real patients of that particular doctor.
The best dentistry comes from focused attention on an
individual patient. A busy, bustling practice means that
the dentist is required to check on many patients
throughout the day. Your family deserves a doctor who
can spend time with you without interruption or rushing.
Look for a practice that utilizes up-to-date, modern
equipment. Used with skill, technology allows dentists to
be more accurate, more conservative in care, and keeps
your procedure as comfortable as possible.
Finally, good communication skills are critical for the treatment to be a success.
The doctor must listen and understand the goals and desires of the patient so the
outcome is predictable and meets the patient's expectations.
With just a little homework up front, you'll be sure to find a dentist who combines
training, skill, artistry and style for great results and beautiful health.
Here's the bit about myself.
I really do care about my patients. They are my ultimate priority, and I am
passionate about learning everything there is to know, so I can give them the best
that dentistry has to offer. This keeps myself and my staff informed on the very latest
advances and techniques. I always listen to your needs and answer all your questions.
I grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland Dental
School in 1981. My wife, Kathy, an RN at Morton Plant, and I moved to Florida
shortly afterwards. We have four children. Our oldest son is a pilot in the US Navy,
next is a construction manager in New York City, the third is studying Architecture.
All are University of Florida Gators. Our daughter is a high school student.
I have done extensive training in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry at the
world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. In addition to this
training, I have studied with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and
orthodontics at the United States Dental Institute.
I love what I do, and I love my patients.
For more information call 727.586.1955 or visit aboutsmilesdental.com and read
what our patients are saying about us, or visit us at 2260 West Bay Drive, Largo.

chance to slow down growth.
Hopefully, they're hardened from soft new growth and will make it
through the low temperatures we're getting. At least it hasn't been
snowing for five days.
To protect plants from a light frost, try to water them well and get
their roots moist; cover with sheets, blankets, boxes or frost cloth. If a
hard freeze is predicted, cover the plants and put electric lights inside.
Christmas lights may give off enough heat; a regular light bulb will be
warmer.
Poinsettias this year are big and beautiful and come in several colors
- even painted ones. Just remember to keep them away from kids and
pets who want to taste them. It's time to deck the halls so prune the
holly, soak it in water and re-cut the bottom when ready to make an
arrangement. Enjoy the cool weather and have a happy holiday.

Afternoon fishing is best


Recent cold fronts have slowed
inshore fishing down dramatical-
ly.
When the water temperature
drops into the low 50s, it's best
to plan your trips for the after-
noon. Shallow water areas can
warm up 5 to 8 degrees through-
out the course of the day, help-
ing to speed up lethargic
gamefish.
Catch and release has been
fair when you can find clean
water, protected from the wind.
Free-lining live shrimp along the
edges of grass flats in three to
five feet of water, or it might be

favorite soft plastics.

going it along the bottom will
bring the best results.
Sheepshead fishing has been
good on all but the coldest of
days.
Traditional spots like bridge
pilings and rock jetties have
been holding schools of
sheepshead. Scraping bridge pil-
ings with a shovel when accessi-
ble will help to get the
sheepshead into a feeding frenzy.
Then it's just a matter of drop-
ping a piece of shrimp on a small
hook with just a little bit of


weight, such as a small split-
shot, right behind the piling so
that your bait will hold in the
current eddy.
Gag grouper fishing remains
good in the 40- to 60-feet range,
where water temperatures re-
main in the upper 50s, keeping
the fish a bit more active.
Chumming the fish with plen-
ty of cut threadfins or scaled sar-
dines will bring the fish from a
distance, and then dropping
down large grass grunts should
entice the larger gag grouper into
biting.
Also, look for grouper to stack
up good around large artificial
reefs after the big blow this
week.
Until net week get bent!

EDITORIAL


City proceeds



with caution

The backlash against Clearwater's proposal to install red-light cam-
eras at intersections in the city is understandable. Surveillance is often
associated with Big Brother, and many people consider it an intrusion
upon their privacy.
Nevertheless, city officials make a strong case for installing red-light
cameras at 11 of the city's most dangerous intersections. The Council
voted 3-2 in favor of the staffs plan.
The Federal Highway Administration and the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration consider the use of cameras an effective
countermeasure to prevent red-light running.
The agencies cited a comprehensive study involving seven jurisdic-
tions in forming its position, which took into account data that shows
an increase in rear-end collisions at intersections where the cameras
are installed.
The study showed there was a modest aggregate crash cost benefit
of the camera systems, even when taken in consideration the negative
impact of rear end collisions.
The benefit of the cameras "could increase further if measures were
taken to educate or alert drivers that vehicles preceding them could be
stopping suddenly for a red light and thus reduce the likelihood of a
rear end crash," the study said.
Despite the increase in rear-end crashes, an economic analysis
showed that red-light cameras saved society $39,000 to $50,000 an-
nually at each intersection where they are installed. Costs considered
are hospital bills, property damage to vehicles, insurance expenses,
value of lost quality of life, and other costs.
Other studies support claims that the cameras may increase certain
types of crashes and cause other safety issues as critics contended at
recent council meetings.
But if such studies are convincing, why are more and more cities
embracing the use of the cameras? As of this month, 502 communities
across the country use cameras in more than 80 jurisdictions, from
New York City to Redding, Calif.
The argument that agencies will use cameras just for the sake of
raising revenue is shaky. City officials plan to provide sufficient warn-
ing to motorists approaching intersections through signage. Such
measures also show that city officials sensitive to the contention that
the city is being sneaky.
Furthermore, the city plans to use the cameras on a trial basis. After
a six-month period, as has been suggested, if city officials find that the
cameras have caused more accidents than they have prevented, they
should discontinue using them.
According to a national Traffic Administration's report, red-light
running crashes alone caused 833 deaths in 2007 across the country.
About 165,000 people are injured annually be red-light runners.
Other Tampa Bay area cities will probably be monitoring the effects
of the city's trial use of the red-light cameras.
If the cameras reduce damages to vehicles, results in fewer injuries
and deaths, saves taxpayers' money and makes law enforcement offi-
cers' jobs more easier, the City Council should continue to support
their use despite the risk of being on a collision course with the Big
Brother argument.


LETTERS

An infringement on civil liberties
Editor:
This is an open letter to the Clearwater City Council. Kudos to
Councilmen Paul Gibson and George Cretekos, who voted against the
stoplight cameras. They are responsible representatives of the public.
I think that it is important to remind Vice Mayor John Doran that
the City Council is supposed to be a representative governmental enti-
ty reflecting the will of the general public that it governs, not a platform
for personal agendas. The fact that Mr. Doran was irresponsible
enough to run a red light does not mean that the entire population of
Clearwater wants stoplight cameras or that they are prone to the same
irresponsible actions.
In my 57 years of life I have never run a red light or a stop sign. Why
don't you put a referendum on the next ballot to determine if the pub-
lic truly wants this infringement on their civil liberties or the expense
involved buying and maintaining the cameras. The referendum would
be the only way to determine the public will. I for one am totally op-
posed to spending tax dollars of almost $5,000 per camera per month
to install and maintain the cameras.

Driving comes with responsibilities
Editor:
As a Pinellas County resident, I was elated to see that Clearwater
was finally doing something to bring us drivers back to our senses. In-
stalling cameras at traffic lights is such a grand idea. Since I walk
most places, I can not begin to tell you how many times I have seen
drivers speed up when they come to a traffic light. The yellow light
means to slow down and stop, not speed up and try to beat the red
light. As far as the argument about hitting a car from the rear because
they are stopping for a yellow or red light that is a non-argument. If
you are going the speed limit and traveling at the required distance be-
hind a car, then you will not need to worry about rear-end collisions.
Maybe drivers will become more aware of other aspects of their driving
such as speed and safe following distance.
In the past month I have witnessed two horrible accidents within
one block in which cars have run red lights and hit cars broadside. In
one instance the offending car ran through a yard hit two parked cars
before finally coming to rest inside a neighbors house. This might have
been prevented if cameras were installed.
We are all sharing the road and have places to go. Along with the
privilege of driving comes the responsibility of obeying the law.

What does Christ want for Christmas?
Editor:
As we give thanks for all the many blessings we already have, our
attention is soon turned to that one burning question, 'What do you
want for Christmas?"
Our children and grandchildren already have their "wish list" ready
full of the latest and greatest new toys. Husbands have their own list of
"Big Boy Toys", wives have dreams of new outfits with shiny acces-
sories. As we get older and hopefully wiser, you will hear us say, "Oh I
don't really need anything," which may have some truth in it but we all
have at least one unfulfilled desire.
As I contemplated my own answer to the question I though about
why we celebrate this time of year. For Christians it is actually the cel-
ebration of someone's birthday, Jesus of Nazareth, who was actually
Jewish, which led me to ponder if I should be celebrating Hanukkah or
Christmas or both? I guess that's a question to ponder at another
time. For now, I'm wondering what the "Birthday Boy" would like.
What does Christ want for Christmas?
In Matthew the sixth chapter we find what is commonly referred to


as 'The Lord's Prayer," which is actually not so much a prayer to be re-
peated but instruction on how to pray.
The real Lord's Prayer is found in the gospel of John 17:31, where
Jesus asks the father, "that they may be one just as you and I are one.
May they also be in us that the world may know that you sent me."
So maybe this whole idea of "peace on earth, goodwill towards men"
isn't as farfetched as we think. Maybe if we in the church could be-
come one, then the world would begin to know and understand why
we celebrate his coming. "For the son of man came to seek and to save
the lost." Luke 21:10.
This Christmas season, let's all try giving the gift of unity to one an-
other, being devoted to one another, honoring one another above our-
selves as we are instructed in Romans 12:10. Then hopefully the world
will see that we are Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, by our love.
Have a blessed and wonderful Christmas.

Non-handy? Here's who to call


Men come in two classes: handy and non-
handy. The handy men are easy to recognize.
They are always searching for objects that
don't work, such as Humvees or space shut-
tle booster engines. Once they spot these
malfunctioning items, handy men get to work
fixing them.
This is true from birth onward. A mother
and her newborn son are transported by
wheelchair to the hospital front door. If the
baby detects the sound of a squeaking wheel,
he will squall in protest until someone gives
him a wrench or oilcan. Future handy males
are seldom content to sit and watch a wash-
ing machine do its thing. They want to get in-
side the gadget and understand just what's
causing all that noise and vibration.
A non-handy male is also easy to identify,
even at age three or four. When he finds a
dresser drawer stuck, he will just let it stay
that way, rather than figure out a solution. If
an alarm clock goes off, the non-handy male
will devote a maximum of four seconds to lo-
cating the "off' button. If he fails, he will sim-
ply slam the clock against the nearest wall.
The motto of the non-handy man is "If it's
broke, don't fix it. Go have a beer."
Handy males usually grow up to be me-
chanics, engineers and vascular surgeons.
They love complex tools and intractable prob-
lems. If a car breaks down on a lonely road
while a passenger is having a heart attack or
a collapsed lung, he'd better hope there's a
handy man aboard. Unfortunately, there
aren't that many of them around. Maybe two
out of ten. They are geniuses, worthy of our
admiration. The other eight just schlep
through life.
I've known a few handy men. Most of them
have had fathers or brothers who were handy.


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


Such families seem to enjoy passing down the
lore, and the tricks of the handyman's trade.
I don't mean to disparage non-handy men.
They have their good points. They are often
adept at crossword puzzles and detecting
when politicians are lying. They are more out-
going than handy men, which prefer to study
blueprints rather than engage in conversa-
tion. But non-handy types are of questionable
value when things go wrong. Such as a leaky
faucet or a worn-out garbage disposal unit.
That's what I'm faced with, as I write this.
As you may have guessed, I am a non-
handy man. But not by choice. I got that way
from hard-earned experience.
Ever since the Hoover administration I
have lived in about forty homes. I have at-
tempted to repair or replace toilet valves,
faucet washers, faulty lawnmowers, leaky
modems and hi-fi speakers that suddenly
began to broadcast in Estonian only. I've
been successful exactly twelve percent of the
time. The rest has been frustration or disas-
ter.
I don't mind failure. It's been the anchor
strut in my karma ever since I was six years
old. My incompetence in and of itself -
doesn't exert much power over me. But what
gets me is the anger that results. I can no
longer tolerate the rage I feel when the dad-
blamed, no-good, flicker-headed widget I've


inserted into the Johnson rod receptacle fails
to work. Then comes an internal response
that causes my vision to turn red. Doctors
tell us we have only so many of these blood
pressure blow-ups before the final one
comes. But they won't give us an exact num-
ber. So we learn to keep cool. Or cooler.
By the time you read this, I will have final-
ly got around to buying a new Badger 5
garbage enough to admit the truth of our
policy failures, or eloquent enough to per-
suade Americans that we have made and
are still making a horrible mistake. The
flag-draped coffins that fly into disposal unit,
and will have made an appointment for an
$80-an-hour plumber to come and install it,
along with a new washer for my leaky kitchen
faucet. I will then do what non-handy men
have been doing for years: write a check.
Please know that everything I've said about
handy and non-handy men is also true about
women. A handy woman can repair or install
any device known to humankind. If she's
married to a non-handy man, she'll probably
have to.

A related thought: Nowhere in America is
there a man or woman handy enough to pull
our troops out of the Mideast swamps. No of-
ficial, high or low, seems clear-eyed and
courageous Dover AFB contains the bodies of
brave Americans who deserve all the honors
we can give him or her. But the decisions
that sent and keep our warriors in the
Mideast are a source of deepest shame for
you and me. With our silence we become al-
lies of Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Will our
sheep-like acquiescence never end?

A lesson learned through journalism: 'It takes all kinds'


You never forget the stories you write in this
business; you also never forget the stories you don't
or can't write.
Years ago, in a Central Florida courtroom, a cir-
cuit judge is doling out sentences to the endless
procession of defendants that were paraded before
him. Languid, resigned they are mostly young
men and women with little to say. Another court-
room, another judge. Another day in the life. Just
no time clock.
"How are you doing, haircut," said the judge, ad-
dressing a young man with long, blond hair.
The judge is animated, maybe for my benefit. Re-
porters don't usually cover routine sentencing hear-
ings.
Moments later, the young man is sobbing.
"I don't know why you are crying," the judge said,
"you're going to be in the brand new county jail."
It's a different world, the courthouse. Go there
enough and you begin to understand what judicial
officials are up against every day, what they see,
what they hear. Futility comes to mind.
Public defenders who spent hours visiting clients
in jails, day or night prosecutors who spend an
entire weekend preparing for a trial.

discusses a case.
Talk turns to public service, the heat officials
take, sometimes unwarranted, for not solving all the
world's problems.
The judge smiles and puts it in simple terms.
"It takes all kinds, Tom."
A lesson learned.
What you hear from some people: police are
overzealous; judges and lawyers are arrogant and
make a lot of money; firefighters have too much
time on their hands. Teachers get too much vaca-
tion, hide behind unions. All politicians are chisel-
ers.
But it's not so. Do this long enough, and you real-
ize it does "take all kinds." You try to rise about
your cynicism, and you learn that nearly all institu-
tions in the public sector have value, though their
leaders may disagree over funding, goals and turf.
You become a better journalist, at least more sea-
soned.
And you hope a little less myopic.


A modest (book) proposal for former president Bush


Every man has an important story to tell even
more so if he was once the president of the United
States. George W. Bush, unfortunately, barely skims
his.
Yes, his memoir "Decision Points," covers a great
deal of ground, and for the intended purposes. The
post-presidential retelling of events is always an ef-
fort to goad a legacy forward. So, as is to be expect-
ed, Bush's recently released book is being dissected
by historians, politicos and pundits alike.
But Bush's allure for both detractors and fans has
long been his golly-gee, easygoing demeanor. He's
the guy you'd choose to have a beer with, as the con-
ventional wisdom once had it, rather than his more
cerebral political foes.
So why not use that gift for a greater good? Give
us a lesson worth engaging.
I wish President Bush would tell us about the
drinking. The full story, not the cursory, told-in-
three-pages bullet-point version offered in "Decision
Points."
Really engage us with how he traversed the route
that has tripped up so many others. Explain the
sneaky way alcohol has for morphing from social fun
with pals to a daily habit of near ravenous cravings.


Obviously, we're all curious about wh
to say about the nonexistent weapons

The passage is set apart by extra lines for empha-
sis.
Laura Bush knows it is pivotal. She played a role
in stopping the cycle of alcohol in her family. Daugh-
ters of drinkers are almost programmed to fall in
love with drinkers. Too many never hear their moth-
er's say those words.
Here's a pitch for an intrepid publishing agent.
How about a dual autobiography? A book co-au-
thored by Laura and George W. Bush. Draw from
the literary skills of Laura and her ability to tease in-
trospection out of George.
If they are ready to reveal more, and I suspect they
might be, have them pen a book that is less a mem-
oir of the presidential years. Give us more of the
young couple they once were, newly married in
Texas.
Next time, address drinking for what it is a soci-
etal problem that is as acute today as it was in 1986,
the year George W. Bush took his last drink.

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

'How Do You Know'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Jack Nicholson,
Kathryn Hahn and Molly Price
Director: James L. Brooks
Rated: PG-13
Lisa (Witherspoon) is a woman whose athletic ability is the defining
passion of her life, having been her focus since early childhood. When
she is cut from her team, everything she has ever known is suddenly
taken from her. Not knowing what to do, she stumbles toward regular
life. In this mode, she begins a fling with Matty (Wilson), a major
league baseball pitcher, a self-centered ladies man a narcissist with a
code of honor.
George (Rudd) is a straight-arrow businessman whose complicated
relationship with his father, Charles (Nicholson), takes a turn when
George is accused of a financial crime, even though he's done nothing
wrong. Though he may be headed to jail, George's honesty, integrity,
and unceasing optimism may be his only path to keeping his sanity.
Before Lisa's relationship with Matty takes root, she meets George
for a first date on the worst evening of each of their lives: she has just
been cut, and he has just been served. When everything else seems to
be falling apart, they will discover what it means to have something
wonderful happen.

'Tron: Legacy'
Genre: Action and science fiction
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner,
Michael Sheen and James Frain
Director: Joseph Kosinski

From Walt Disney Pictures comes 'Tron: Legacy," a high-tech adven-
ture set in a digital world that is unlike anything ever captured on the
big screen.
At the epicenter of the adventure is a father-son story that resonates
as much on the Grid as it does in the real world: Sam Flynn (Garrett

appearance of his father, Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a man once

When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's
Arcade a signal that could only come from his father he finds him-

OPENING, from page 1B


stunning digital landscape created by Kevin himself
that has become far more advanced, with never-be-
fore-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a
ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent
their escape.

'Yogi Bear'
Genre: Family, comedy and animation
Cast: Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Christine
Taylor, Tom Cavanagh and Anna Faris
Director: Eric Brevig
Rated: PG
Everyone's favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear
comes to the big screen in 'Yogi Bear," a new adven-
ture, filmed in 3D, that combines live action with
computer animation.
Dan Aykroyd stars as the voice of Yogi, Jellystone
Park's notorious troublemaker, and Justin Timber-
lake as the voice of Boo Boo, Yogi's faithful pal and
co-conspirator in his never-ending schemes to sepa-
rate park visitors from their lunches.
Yogi has always relied on his quick wit and fast
feet to stay one step ahead of irate campers while
dodging his long-suffering nemesis, Ranger Smith.
But he and Boo Boo are about to face a situation
worse than anything Yogi has ever gotten them
into...
Jellystone Park is being sold!
To cover his mismanagement of city funds and
fuel his election campaign, Mayor Brown plans to
sell the park to loggers. Families will no longer be
able to experience the natural beauty of the out-
doors Jellystone has always provided and, even
worse, Yogi, Boo Boo, and all their friends will be
tossed out of the only home they've ever known.
Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must
prove he really is "smarter than the average bear,"
as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to
find a way to save the park from closing forever.
The following will open in limited release. It may be
several weeks before these films appear in local
movie theaters.

'Casino Jack'
Genre: Drama, crime and biopic
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston,
Rachelle Lefevre and Jon Lovitz
Director: George Hickenlooper
Rated: R
Kevin Spacey gives the performance of a lifetime
in "Casino Jack," a riotous new film starring Spacey
as a man hell-bent on acquiring all that the good life
has to offer. He plays in the same game as the high-
est of rollers and resorts to awe-inspiring levels of
conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get
what he wants.
Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top
for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, "Casi-
no Jack" lays bare the wild excesses and escapades
of Jack Abramoff. Aided by his business partner
Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his
clout over some of the world's most powerful men
with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth


I gET MY SA14FOD

and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connect-
ed buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal
schemes, they soon find themselves in over their
heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins,
murder and a scandal that spins so out of control
that it makes worldwide headlines.

'Rabbit Hole'
Genre: Drama and adaptation
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne
Wiest, Tammy Blanchard and Miles Teller
Director: John Cameron Mitchell
Rated: PG-13
"Rabbit Hole" is a vivid, hopeful, honest and un-
expectedly witty portrait of a family searching for
what remains possible in the most impossible of all
situations.
Becca and Howie Corbett (Nicole Kidman and
Aaron Eckhart) are returning to their everyday exis-
tence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just
eight months ago, they were a happy suburban
family with everything they wanted. Now, they are
caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimi-
nation, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from
which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain
in the familiar, Howie finds comfort.
The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments.
Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving
mother (Dianne Wiest) and secretly reaches out to
the teenager involved in the accident that changed
everything (Miles Teller); while Howie lashes out and
imagines solace with another woman (Sandra Oh).
Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying
to find their way back to a life that still holds the po-
tential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The re-
sulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two
people learning to re-engage with each other and a
world that has been tilted off its axis.

'And Soon the Darkness'
Genre: Thriller and remake
Cast: Amber Heard, Odette Yustman, Karl Urban
and Adriana Barraza
Director: Marcos Efron
Rated: R
Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie's (Odette Yust-
man) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a
perfect 'girl's getaway' to bask in the sun, shop and
flirt with the handsome locals.
After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into
an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the
morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has
disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie
fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But
the local authorities have their hands full already -
with a string of unsolved kidnapping targeting
young female tourists.
Sceptical of the sheriffs competency, she enlists
help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat
staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic
search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that
trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her
farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and
time running out, Stephanie must find her friend
before darkness falls.

Even without the occasional snow flurry, getting into the spirit of the
season isn't difficult with all the holiday-themed events offered around
the area. From seasonal plays and concerts to annual parades led by

iday happenings in Pinellas County.

winter village is complete with four Tudor style cottages, set amidst a
backdrop of thousands and thousands of twinkling lights placed just
so on 100 freshly snowed-on large pine trees.
There is a playground with swings and a fort to explore. Action
abounds in the two bouncy houses and giant slide filled with children.
Pony rides and a petting zoo create an even more delightful experience.
Entertainment will include stage performances by local entertainers,
magicians, The Tricky Dog Show and the famous Winter Wonderland
Express a trackless choo-choo train.
