Repairs to water main continue

County officials hopeful Belcher Road can reopen within two weeks


By SUZETTE PORTER

Pinellas County Utilities an-
nounced late Monday after-
noon that repairs to a 48-inch
water main in Largo are taking
longer than previously esti-
mated.
"It is a very labor intensive
project to remove the old con-
crete and cut the replacement
pipe to the exact specifications
needed," Lin Ciecieznski, pub-
lic information specialist for
Pinellas County Communica-
tions, said in a press release.
"Crews will continue to work
aggressively, but the pipeline
is 4 feet wide and the replace-
ment section is expected to be
at least 20 feet long, so the
work is both difficult and time


consuming."
Officials now say they are
hopeful repairs can be com-
pleted by the end of the week.
Latest estimates say it will
be at least two weeks before
Belcher Road can be restored.
The road will remain closed
between East Bay Drive and
Ulmerton Road until further
notice.
Temporary lines have been
run to some of the businesses
in the area without water, in-
cluding one restaurant and
Lee's Travel Park housing cen-
ter. Officials said off business-
es located near the repair are
open and accessible by alter-
nate entrances.
Life returned to normal the
day after Christmas for more


than 100,000 Pinellas County
Utilities customers.
A mandatory boil water
order, in effect since the night
of Thursday, Dec. 23, for resi-
dents south of Belleair Road,
was lifted Sunday morning.
Trouble started late in the
day Dec. 23 when workers no-
ticed a small leak in the 48-
inch water main near the
intersection of Belcher Road
and 142nd Avenue North in
Largo.
They were looking for the
source (of the leak) when "it
(the pipe) gave out," said Dave
Baker, public information
manager for Pinellas County
communications.

receives


Kiwanis
1 A1

top honor
top-

By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE Gene Mohney is the last of a '
generation.
At age 85, he is the only remaining char-
ter member of the Kiwanis Club of Seminole,
which formed Sept. 29, 1960.
As a 50-year member and a major con-
tributor to community events over the years,
Mohney was recently inducted into the Le-
gion of Honor of Kiwanis Intemrnational, one
of the highest honors available for Kiwanis
members. -
"He deserves it," said Harold "Doc" Kinsey,
a member since 1972. "He deserved it a long
time ago."
The Legion of Honor Award was created to
extend a token of appreciation to Kiwanians
with 25 years or more of service.
Mohney is the son-in-law of the late Jesse
Johnson, founder of the club and one of the
key forces behind the city of Seminole get-
ting its charter 50 years ago.
"My father-in-law said I want you to join
and that was it," said Mohney, a former club
president and board member.
Mohney was one of 25 charter members
of the club, which later expanded to more
than 100 members in the early 1980s.
However, in the late 1980s, when corpo-
rate backing of civic club membership began
to slow down, the numbers dropped.
"When they cut the free lunch, it was
harder to get members," said Mohney, the
1997 Mr. Seminole.
Today the club boasts about 45 members
but only 16 to 18 are active. Photo courtesy of STEVE ZAZZARO

Gasoline rises to near-record highs


By SUZETTE PORTER
Typically, gas prices are at their lowest in the fall
and winter months. However, the year 2010 is prov-
ing to be an exception.
Since Labor Day, the national average price for a
gallon of regular unleaded has risen 30 cents, ac-
cording to the Dec. 22 This Week in Petroleum Re-
port from the U.S. Energy Information
Administration. It is the largest increase for the peri-
od since 1990 when the EIA started publishing
weekly retail gasoline price data.
In addition, the average price for a gallon of un-
leaded at $2.98 on Dec. 22, was the second highest
ever recorded for the third week in December.
In past years, 2004-2007 and 2009, EIA statistics
show gas prices dropping an average of 22 cents
over roughly the same period. The EIA excluded the
year 2008 due to "rapid run-up and subsequent
crash in crude oil prices."
EIA attributes the increase to rising crude oil
prices and says the trend will likely continue into
2011.
Increasing demand is a second reason for the
higher pump prices, the EIA said. U.S. gasoline de-


mand has increased for six months the longest pe-
riod since 2007, and officials say data for October,
November and December show demand continuing
to increase.
On Dec. 22, the AAA Fuel Gauge Report priced
the national average of a gallon of regular at $2.997
- up 1.4 cents from the day before; 1.3 cents from a
week ago; 12.5 cents more than a month ago; and
more than 41 cents higher than the same date last
year.
The highest national average price ever reported
was $4.11 on July 17, 2008, according to AAA.
The average price for the state of Florida, on Dec.
22, was $3 a gallon. Last year, Floridians preparing
for their holiday trips were paying 38 cents a gallon
less at the pumps.
Motorists in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater
area were paying nearly 6 cents less than the state
average and a little more than 4 cents less than the
national average. Local prices were up almost 38
cents from the same date in 2009.
The highest recorded price for a gallon of unlead-
ed in the state was $4.079 on July 16, 2007. The

For the love of art and flying

A 92-year-old WW II veteran shares stories of his career as a pilot and capturing memories in paint


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER Paul Eckley has loved airplanes
ever since he drew side views of them in grade-
school. They took on a whole new meaning when he
graduated from the Aviation Cadets as a second
lieutenant just five days after the attack on Pearl
Harbor.
Eckley, now 92 who lives in Regency Oaks in
Clearwater, still paints airplanes and has a growing
collection of historically accurate 1942 aircraft that
he hopes to donate to the Pentagon.
Even as a boy, Eckley was fascinated by air-
planes. In 1927, he and his brother talked their
mother into taking them to the local airport in Itha-
ca, N.Y., to see the flying circus. Once there, they
talked her into letting one of the pilots take them up
in a plane.
"Once we got airborne, she began to be all, oh my
gosh, these are my two children, and they're off to-
gether in that one airplane," Eckley said. "She was
glad to see the airplane get back on the ground
again. But that whet my appetite."
After Eckley's grade-school sketches, he was in-
spired by his high school art teacher and followed
in her footsteps by attending Pratt Institute art
school in Brooklyn, N.Y. While there he also got his
pilot's license. However, after graduating, he real-
ized he couldn't make enough money to handle liv-
ing, flying and a girlfriend, so after having a job
with his brother for about six months, he joined the
Army Air Corps in 1941. He graduated Dec. 12,
1941.
Less than a month later, at the beginning of
1942, he was co-pilot on a B-17 taking off from
MacDill Air Force Base, then called Southeast Air
Base. However, his flying career could have ended
that morning before it even started.
"I was a brand new co-pilot," Eckley said. "I'd
only been in a B-17 one time, flying down to
MacDill. And the pilot told me, 'I want you to lock
the tail wheel on takeoff, pull up the g ear on my
command,' and then I was to reach forward and
there were four toggle switches that were booster
pumps that provided extra fuel to the engines and
all four booster pumps were on. And he said, 'After
you pull up the gear, reach up and turn those
booster pumps off.' So in the dark of that cockpit at
4 a.m., I reached forward with my left hand to pull
off the four booster pumps, and he hit my hand in
the darkness. The pilot hit my hand. I had my four
fingers on the four fuel shutoff switches, which
were right in front of the other four. And it would
have been awful quiet for about 10 seconds and
then we would have been in Tampa Bay."
Once safely in the air, they flew through South
America, Africa, India, and finally got to an air base
in Java, Indonesia, Eckley said, where he began his
career in combat flying. A few weeks later, he joined
the evacuation of the island and got out on a Dutch
freighter.
"I was not a very high ranking second lieutenant,
and I didn't get to fly out," Eckley said. "I had to
scramble and get out on a Dutch freighter, but I got
down to Australia. Incidentally, out of the 20-some
ships that evacuated from Java, only 11 reached
where they were intended to go. The Japanese sunk
all of the others."
In Australia, Eckley joined up with the 19th
Bomb Group and ran bombing missions out of
Australia and New Guinea.
Eckley says he's not just a veteran he's a sur-
vivor. There were so many times in his career when
he could have or should have died, but still he sur-
vived. After one bombing mission, his plane was
running low on fuel, and had a new navigator on
board. When they hit the south coast of New
Guinea, Eckley and the pilot asked the navigator
which way they were to turn. He said to turn left.
After a little while, Eckley and the pilot realized that


they were going the wrong way, and they were still
running low on fuel. Luckily, they realized the mis-
take in time.
Each mission alone was deadly.
"Flying and my military career was dangerous,
being shot at," Eckley said. "Actually, I was bombed
and strafed and shot at in the air. On missions,
we'd go to Rabaul, New Britain, that was the big
Japanese base, one of the largest Japanese bases
in the South Pacific. And the Japanese would come
up to attack us, and you're sitting there and they'd
be coming straight at you and there's nothing you
can do. The guns over your head are shooting at
them, and they're shooting at you. You can see the
tracers coming, and you see tracers bouncing off of
the Japanese plane, but it keeps coming. It doesn't
explode like in the movies. Yeah, that was scary.
But I was fortunate. I survived."
Another time, after flying for about 12 hours and
back into Java, Eckley and the other officers were
in the officers' quarters around noon, catching up
on sleep, when all of a sudden they heard firing.
The Japanese was bombing the island. He and the
other officers jumped up, grabbed their tin hats
and belts and ran otherwise completely naked -
through a nearby stream.
It was hard watching friends die, and he was
often terrified, but it was just his job, he said.
"It's tough. Whole crews would disappear and
we'd never see them again," Eckley said. 'The guys
get shot down. They'd have a crash. It happened all
the time. And we didn't get hardened by it. Just like
sitting through a bombing raid you're terrified.
You're on target. They're actually dropping bombs
on you. Or when they're shooting, they're shooting
at you. And at the time, I was doing my job. I had a
job to do, and I was busy doing that. I didn't have
any feelings of trying to get out of the mission. No.
You would never do something like that. Because
then one of your buddies would go instead. We
were very close, the officers were."
Even during his combat career, Eckley drew and
painted. With supplies limited, he painted on shirt-
backs the cardboard that came in between shirts
after they had gone out to be laundered.
Eckley's whirlwind year of 1942 concluded with
him returning to the states in December and mar-
ried his art school sweetheart. They were married
for 64 years and had three children together.
Even though his combat career was over, Eckley
had many more adventures in the military in his 24
years of service. And he remained a survivor. One
time, he had a general officer in the back of a B-25
as he took off from Mitchell Field in New York,
when his co-pilot indicated that they were losing
fuel pressure from the right engine. Eckley decided
to play it safe and not touch anything. He left the
gear down and the throttles exactly the way they
were and began the landing pattern. The entire
time, he did not touch any of the settings.
"We landed very fast, but when we came to a
stop, there was gasoline coming out of the engine
like that," Eckley said. "You could see it. And the
reason I didn't touch anything didn't touch the
gear or the throttle settings or anything like that -
was because the fuel ratio, we could cause an ex-
plosion. And as long as it hadn't exploded by then,
it wasn't going to explode where it was. But you
think back now, and you think, golly. I really sur-
vived."
It wasn't long after he returned from combat
fighting that people noticed his art talent and
moved him to work in Flight Safety as the art editor
in graphic arts. He then had major command head-
quarters positions for the rest of his career. He
helped prepare slides, charges and strategic art
command. Eventually, he noticed that there was a
vacancy at the Joint Chief of Staffs at the Pentagon
and landed a job as the director of graphic arts. It
was the time of the early Vietnam War and the

aviation artist with an emphasis on planes of 1942.


Cuban Missile Crisis, so it was a panicked place, he
said. People would come back from Vietnam on Fri-
day afternoons, and Eckley and his team had the
weekend to get the graphics together for Monday
morning presentations to the White House, he said.
He would then ride along in the limo to the White
House to help with the presentations, running the
projector, flipping charts or however else he could
help.
Finally, Eckley realized he could not advance any
further, so he retired from the military and then
worked for 14 years with Communication Satellite
Corporation. After he retired at age 60, he and his
wife bought a travel trailer and ended up at a
Christian campground in Bradenton and worked
there for 18 months helping kids. From there they
bought a home on Countryside Boulevard and took
in a young pastor who wanted to start a church in
Clearwater. The Eckley's living room became the
beginnings of the Countryside Christian Center
which is now on McMullen Booth Road.
Still, Eckley could not keep away from his art
and love of planes. He and his wife began classes at
the Dunedin Fine Art Center, and he also joined the
international organization, American Society of Avi-
ation Artists. He focuses on 1942 art because at
that time, there were no aviation artists. He wants
to fill that void. His collection has grown, and he
hopes to donate it to the Pentagon to hang in the
Air Force wing. He paints with acrylics because it's
easier to dry and start again when the color isn't
quite right. He wants the art to be historically accu-
rate, so a lot of research goes into each painting -
what exactly did the headsets look like? What did
the inside of a specific plane look like at the time?
Which way would the sunlight be coming from if a
pilot were to take off from a base in Mareeba, Aus-
tralia?
This past summer, Eckley got to relive his earli-
est days as a pilot. He and a friend went to Fantasy


of Flight in Lakeland. There he saw the exact kind
of plane he flew back in primary flying school in
Americus, Ga. It was a Boeing Pilot Training-17
Stearman. The only differences were that it was
painted in Navy colors instead of Army Air Corps
colors, that one no longer had to hand crank the
engines, and there were better headsets.
'They were biplanes and open cockpits, and I had
so much fun flying those airplanes," Eckley said.
"Oh! They taught us how to do loops and tailspins
and snap rolls and barrel rolls, the whole acrobatic
thing could be done in primary flying school in an
open cockpit with the air coming by you and just
tooling around upside down, right side up."
Eckley asked if he could go up in the PT-17, and
as soon as a rain storm passed, he and another
pilot went up in it. After the other pilot made the
takeoff, he turned it over to Eckley and instructed
him to climb up to 1,700 feet at 80 miles per hour.
After a while, the pilot instructed him to make a left
turn and then a right turn. Then, Eckley was free to
fly at will.
"So I had a half an hour of flying the airplane,"
Eckley said. "... And at one point, I said, 'Whoopee!'
and he said, 'I'm glad to see you smiling.' Because
when I first started out, I kept my head in the cock-
pit. I was looking at the instruments, making sure
I'm doing what he said. But when I got up to 1,700
feet, I started looking around and looking at the
trees and the lakes and everything. Oh, it was neat.
We went and buzzed some cows and I did some
practice stalls. I did everything for a half an hour. I
didn't do any acrobatics or turn upside down or
anything, but I just had fun tooling through the
sky."
For that half an hour, Eckley was at home again
in the sky.
Eckley's art has made it into a book and is also
the book jacket art on a new book. To learn more

Mystery shipwreck artifacts found


By WAYNE AYERS

LARGO Jim Leatherwood is convinced there is an as-yet-undis-
covered shipwreck just off our shores. The treasure hunter from Largo
backs his claim with dozens of ship-related artifacts, discovered while
beachcombing with a metal detector.
His finds include large keel pins, used in building wooden ships.
They connect the wood and keep the ship together. He shows a heavy
pin that is bent, evidence it has been under stress. 'That tells you it
has been in a wreck," said Leatherwood.
Weighty spikes, bolts and wedges were all part of a ship's outfitting,
and further indications of a nearby shipwreck, according to Leather-
wood. A brass nail would have tacked down the metal sheeting on a
boat, while a pulley was connected to the rigging.
A piece of chain showed a string cheese pattern, indicating a long-
ago blacksmith had worked it.
Dainty rings of ancient vintage, likely part of the ship's cargo, carry
distinct markings. A cat's head, two "sea monster" dragons facing
each other. One ring appears to have been made from a teaspoon.
A piece of shell/coral conglomerate contains the remnant of a din-
ner plate, with a design still discernible. Several nails in the cluster
suggest that the plate was in a nailed box. Another conglomerate piece
is embedded with a fragment of wood, nearly petrified from age, which
was part of a ship. These are very rare finds, Leatherwood said, which
his metal detector picked up because of the iron nails present.
Leatherwood held up a piece of coal. There is no natural coal in the
ocean, he said, so its presence would mean a steamship had been
nearby. "(The coal) would be the first thing that would turn me on to a
site," he said.
Numerous clues, such as the blacksmithing marks and nail head
style, suggest that many of the items he has found date from the
1800s.
Leatherwood said he has probably walked a thousand miles along
the local beaches, from Pass-a-Grille to Clearwater, in his treasure
hunts. But his shipwreck discoveries have all been concentrated in
one area Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores. And they have
mostly turned up during and after storms.
"When there's a storm, that's when you find the most," said Marlene
Leatherwood, Jim's wife. He added, "You need to go out in really bad
weather to find these things." Even with the waves stirring things up,
the items are usually buried under the sand, so finding them is not an
easy task. Of course, the metal detector also turns up many unwanted
items like bottle caps, so perseverance is required to locate the "keep-
ers."
Finding numerous ship-related artifacts of a similar age in one con-
centrated area is convincing evidence that points to the presence of a
nearby shipwreck, Leatherwood said.
"I believe there's an old ship out there," he said with conviction.
That belief has been backed up by knowledgeable members of
Leatherwood's metal detecting club, as well as associates at Odyssey
Marine Exploration in Tampa, salvagers of sunken ships around the
world.
Leatherwood brought his first find, an encrusted bar, to a metal de-
tecting buddy shortly after he took up the hobby seven years ago. "I
asked him what it was, and he told me to clean it up and show it to

'That's a keel pin, from an old ship," the man said, after viewing the

tired teacher, on what would become his career hobby collecting
shipwreck relics.
Cleanup of the artifacts is a tough job, Leatherwood has found.
"Many of the iron pieces are really encrusted and it takes a lot of work
to get the encrustation material off," he said.
Most shoreline treasure hunters regard iron as a discard, preferring

to collect coins and lost jewelry that are of more monetary value and
easier to process.
One group that considers the shipwreck artifacts priceless is the In-
dian Rocks Historical Society and Museum. Leatherwood is donating
his collection to the museum.
"I found these things at Indian Rocks Beach and they belong to the
community," said Leatherwood, who recently became a volunteer do-
cent at the museum.
Museum exhibit coordinator Jan Ockunzzi said a shipwreck exhibit
would fit nicely into their plans to expand the museum next year.
"I'm really excited about having a new exhibit closely tied to our
coastal heritage, with artifacts found on our beach," Ockunzzi said.
'This will add a new dimension to our museum's collection."

George Bessler, the acting chief of Seminole Fire Rescue, wraps Christmas gifts for needy children Dec.
19 at Station 29, 11195 70th Ave., with members of the Seminole Lake Rotary Club and their families.
For over 30 years the Seminole fire fighters have used various fundraisers at community events to raise
money which was used to purchase gifts for Seminal area children who would have been lacking in
Christmas gifts due to their family's economic needs. Each year over $4,000 was raised, presents
purchased and wrapped by the fire fighters and their families. This year, due to the worsening economy,
only $3,000 was raised. The Rotary Club of Seminole Lake donated $1,000 to make sure the fire fighters
could help as many children as possible.



Term limits fail to get consideration


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND City commissioners decid-
ed against addressing any changes to an ordinance
regarding term limits of board and committee mem-
bers during a Dec. 21 workshop at City Hall.
The topic came up following a recent request by
Heidi Horak, chair of the city's planning and zoning
board, to consider revising a 2005 ordinance that
limits committee and board members to six consec-
utive years.
"A number of years ago, I was one of those that
brought up term limits for boards and committees,"
said Commissioner Phil Collins. "Heidi feels like
there is not enough qualified people to take over
their work on the land development regulations. I
don't feel like there's a need to change this."
Treasure Island residents voted in favor of term
limits in 2004 for the city's Planning and Zoning
Board, Code Enforcement Board, Beautification
Committee, Beach Stewardship Committee, Gulf
Beaches Library Trustees, Marina Committee, Miti-
gation Planning Committee and Personnel Advisory
Board.
The ordinance states no appointed member can
serve longer than six years unless there is no avail-
able qualified candidate as a replacement. Under
that condition, the appointment can be renewed be-
yond six years.
Collins wondered how the city can measure
whether one person is more qualified to serve on a
board than another.


GASOLINE, from page 1A


local area's record is $4.009 set on the same day.
AAA Auto Club predicted on Dec. 15 that more
than 92 million Americans would travel during the
holiday period, Dec. 23-Jan. 2 an increase of 3.1
percent from last year.
According to HIS Global Insight 2010-11 year-end
holiday travel forecast, which is the basis for AAA's


City Clerk Dawn Foss said all the current mem-
bers of the planning and zoning board would be on
board through 2012.
"I say we let it go," said Collins. "We can deal with
it then."
Commissioner Alan Bildz agreed.
"I've had people express to me to not change a
thing," he said.
On another issue, the city's Local Planning Agen-
cy is close to putting the finishing touches on the
Downtown Redevelopment Special Area Plan.
City Manager Reid Silverboard said a Jan. 5
meeting of the LPA would decide final recommenda-
tions to the City Commission. The plan will go to a
City Commission workshop Jan. 18 and the first
public hearing will be Feb. 1.
After that, the plan will go before the Pinellas
Planning Council in mid-March and before the
Pinellas County Commission in mid-April. From
there it will go before state officials in Tallahassee
for approval before a second public hearing in Trea-
sure Island some time in May.
Details of the plan have not been released but are
expected to form the core of future development in
the city.
In old business, Silverboard said a proposed traf-
fic signal for the intersection of Gulf Boulevard and
104th Avenue is going through the permitting pro-
cess in Tallahassee by Florida Department of Trans-
portation. He said the signal should be up and
running at some point during the summer.


predictions, 93 percent of holiday travelers will drive
to their destinations a 3.2 percent increase over
last year.
Motorists and travelers may use the Internet to
search for the lowest prices before hitting the road.
The website www.tampagasprices.com was showing
a wide range of prices late Dec. 22. The lowest price
reported was $2.73 at a Pinellas Park station and
the highest was $3.07 in Dunedin.


City officials, Progress Energy


renew franchise agreement


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE After some minor language changes
by City Attorney John Elias, the City Council voted
unanimously Dec. 21 to pass an ordinance estab-
lishing a 10-year extension to the city's nonexclu-
sive franchise agreement with Progress Energy.
The agreement gives Progress Energy the ability
to conduct business in Seminole for the next 10
years.
In return, the city will collect 6 percent of the
company's base revenue. Last year that amount
was $1.51 million, or 10 percent of the fiscal 2011
budget.
"Our city is partially funded by franchise and
user fees," said City Councilor Bob Matthews.
'That's why ad valorem tax makes up only (16 per-
cent of city funding)."


The new agreement with Progress Energy extends
through January 2021.
In other action, Mayor Jimmy Johnson handed
out a 29-year longevity pin to Elias for his service to
the city and a 20-year pin to Matthews.
Councilors Leslie Waters and Patricia Plantamura
received 1-year pins.
Upcoming city events in January:
Monday, Jan. 10, Recreation Board meeting, 6
p.m., Recreation Center.
Tuesday, Jan. 11, City Council workshop, 6:45
p.m., City Hall; 7 p.m., City Council meeting, City
Hall.
Tuesday, Jan. 25, City Council meeting, 7 p.m.,
City Hall.
Thursday, Jan. 27, 10 a.m., Senior Health and
Wellness Expo, Recreation Center.


Waters attends Bosnia conference


SEMINOLE Vice Mayor Leslie Waters traveled
last week to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina to
consult and train newly elected women's members
of government and civil society representatives on
caucus building and legislation development.
Waters facilitates training for newly elected
women Members of Parliament in Sarajevo
At the heart of the conference were productive
and energetic conversations on consensus build-
ing across party lines, and the challenges of work-
ing within complicated written and unwritten
rules that are embedded in parliamentary proce-
dure.
The 1992-95 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina
ended with the crucial brokering of the 1995 Day-
ton Accords bringing peace to a war torn country.
The late Richard Holbrooke was instrumental in
leading the diplomatic effort to ensure peace.
'The U.S. and NATO to this day support recon-
struction, humanitarian assistance, and economic
development in Bosnia and Herzegovina since the


peace treaty," Waters said in a press release, "and
that is a good thing."
Waters joined presenters from the Czech Re-
public, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
"It was an honor to work with such distin-
guished women leaders," said Waters. 'Their com-
mitment to democratic reform, infrastructure
development, and building consensus on gender
advocacy, is admirable."
The conference received welcomed recognition
with the attendance of Danuta Moon, the United
States ambassador's wife; Steven Gillen, political
officer, U.S. Embassy.
The conference was hosted by the Women's
Democracy Network, a division of the International
Republican Institute, a nonprofit organization
based in Washington, D.C.
Since 2004, IRI has sent Waters on other assign-
ments to work with newly elected officials, political
parties, political activists and political candidates
in Southeast Asia, the Mideast and Africa.


Generator purchase approved


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND In the event of a major
power outage, the city's sewer system lift stations
will still be functional.
Thanks to City Commission approval of a
$29,694 allocation, the city will now have two of
the optimum three portable generators necessary
to keep the flow rolling.
Commissioners voted 4-1 in favor of purchasing
a 40-kilowatt generator on Dec. 21, which will
complement a 100-kilowatt generator already in
use. To complete the backup system, a third 40-
kilowatt generator will need to be purchased at
some point in the future.
"Before we go down the road of adding a third
one, I think we need to evaluate it a little more,"
said Commissioner Gail Caldwell. "We need to
think through the need of having three generators
to serve our infrastructure. I don't feel comfortable
with this and I think we need more information. Is
there an alternative?"
Public Works director Jim Murphy said the only
alternative would be contracting with a septic tank
company to take the material out of the lift stations
and locating it somewhere else.
Commissioner Phil Collins said the portable gen-
erators were the most viable way to address the
issue. Murphy agreed.
"Based on my analysis," Murphy said, "this
would be the most effective way to handle a major
power shutdown. The plan I provided is a reason-
able approach and the most efficient way to ad-
dress it."
Commissioner Carol Coward asked if a probabil-
ity study on a power outage might be a good idea.
"We can keep buying these things, but we need
other things," Coward said.
"This is a minor cost in the event something
happens," said Commissioner Alan Bildz. 'Take it
from me. When people's toilets don't flush, they get
upset fast."
City Manager Reid Silverboard said the backup
generator plan was the best way to go.
"I think having three backup generators is a
prudent thing to do and is something very com-
mon for cities with systems like this," said Silver-
board. "It's scary. We should have had this from
the get-go."
The city's sewer system uses 11 satellite lift sta-
tions and one large pump station to deliver
wastewater to the master pump station at City


Hall.
The master pump station sends the effluent to
the city of St. Petersburg for treatment.
Murphy said a citywide power outage of more
than four hours, 15 minutes would cause an over-
flow of the city's lift stations.
The generators would be towed by a pickup
truck to lift stations on a rotating basis, allowing
each to be powered up.
In other action, commissioners:
Approved a 10-year extension of the franchise
agreement with Progress Energy, allowing Progress
Energy to do business in Treasure Island. In turn,
Progress Energy will pay the city 6 percent of its
base revenue from city customers. Last year the
city collected about $770,000.
Passed a resolution for a one-year extension of
the agreement between the city, St. Pete Beach and
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority for the opera-
tion of the Suncoast Beach Trolley. The cities will
pay PSTA $76.76 per vehicle per hour of service,
which will be offset by passenger revenue and by
any state or federal grants. The amount of the sub-
sidy will not be greater than $600,000. Treasure
Island will be responsible for a maximum of
$200,000. St. Pete Beach will be responsible for a
maximum of $400,000.
Passed on first reading an ordinance updating
the city's five-year schedule of capital improve-
ments.
Passed on first reading a resolution setting the
electronic changeable sign interval at eight seconds.
Passed an ordinance on first reading setting the
hours of operation for the sale of alcoholic bever-
ages. The ordinance sets 2 a.m. as the closing time
for establishments each day of the week and sets
10 a.m. as the opening time on Sundays. The regu-
lations are now part of the city code after years of
being part of the land development regulations.
Passed on second reading a number of possible
revisions to the city's charter that will require voter
approval in March. They cover the elimination of
eminent domain for the purchase of property that
is used for commercial enterprise, the elimination
of runoff elections, a minor amendment to the
city's financial audit ordinance, the filling of tem-
porary vacancies on the City Commission, increas-
ing the number of residents allowable on city
committees, increasing to 60 days the time to re-
peal ordinances, and changing of the time period
for redistricting from every two years to every 10
years.


Madeira Beach mayor to step down


Work continues on repairs to a 48-inch water main that ruptured near the intersection of Belcher Road and
142nd Avenue North in Largo Dec. 23. Belcher Road remains closed to traffic between East Bay Drive and
Ulmerton Road.


WATER, from page 1A


"It's a very old pipe, which is why there is a major
48-inch pipe replacement project under way on that
stretch of Belcher Road," he said.
The three-mile Belcher Road project began in June
to replace the last of 12-miles of defective 48-inch
water main. The pipeline was constructed in the
mid-1970s with a material later discovered to be de-
fective, according to information on the county's
website, www.pinellascounty. org.
Workers are replacing the defective 48-inch con-
crete pipe with 42-inch ductile pipe. Work is expect-
ed to be completed by late 2011.
Residents in Largo, Seminole, Pinellas Park and
the beach communities began experiencing low
water pressure just after 6 p.m. Dec. 23. About
three hours later, Pinellas County Utilities issued a
mandatory boil water order.


During the night, workers isolated the leak and
shut off the portion of the pipe with the break, said
Marq Caughell, public information specialist with
Pinellas County Communications. Then they inter-
connected the county's water system with the city of
St. Petersburg's, restoring water pressure to most
customers by Christmas Eve.
Utilities have interconnect agreements with sur-
rounding water systems for emergency use, Caugh-
ell said. It also has an agreement with Pasco County
for water problems that happen in northern parts of
the county.
Some addresses in the immediate vicinity of the
break remained without water throughout the
weekend. By Dec. 26, water had been restored to all
but 38 industrial and commercial businesses.
"Pinellas County Utilities appreciates everyone's
patience and understanding during this major
water emergency," Baker said.

MADEIRA BEACH Pat Shontz will not seek a
second term as the city's mayor. A long-time figure
in local politics and civic affairs, Shontz decided
three years at the city's helm is enough.
"I'm not running for mayor this time," Shontz said
in a message announcing her decision.
Shontz later said she had enjoyed her time being
mayor and serving the people of Madeira Beach.
"I sincerely thank the people for the confidence
they had in me, but I think it's time to hang up the
gavel," she said.
Shontz said she was grateful to work with "the
city's great staff ... some very, very dedicated peo-


MOHNEY, from page 1A

In the early days, Mohney said, all mem-
bers were active and the venue for meetings
changed frequently.
"We started in a little restaurant on Seminole
Boulevard, just north of where the Twistee Treat
(ice cream store) is now," Mohney said. "We out-
grew a lot of restaurants over the years. Then my
father-in-law built the Seminole Mall and said he
was going to build us a place to meet."
The club met at a site in the mall now used by
the Super Buffet before moving on to a steakhouse
on 70th Avenue, a Morrison's Cafeteria on Duhme
Road and then back to the mall.
Club members raised money selling a variety of
items before later settling into their annual sale of
Christmas trees that still acts as the club's top
means of raising money.
"When we first started out, we went door to door
selling light bulbs," Mohney said. 'Then the sec-
ond or third year we sold peanut brittle with it.
After that we added gumdrops and boxes of choco-
late."
About 1965, the club started selling Christmas
trees, which today is still its primary fundraiser on


ple."
Shontz named several projects she wanted to see
accomplished, including a new hotel, and a park on
the ball field property next to city hall.
'We are working on the hotel project right now,"
she said.
A mayoral contest is already shaping up between
current District 4 Commissioner Steve Kochick and
charter boat captain Travis Palladeno. Both have
turned in papers to run for mayor, according to City
Clerk Denise Schlegel.
Kochick has been generally supportive of the cur-
rent administration, while Palladeno has been a fre-
quent critic, especially of the city's budgeting
actions this year.


113th Street, a few feet north of the Seminole
Chamber of Commerce.
"We used to sell 1,200 to 1,500 trees each year,"
said Mohney. "This year we're down to 300. We
need to sell between $15,000 and $18,000 worth
of trees before we break even. After that, it all goes
back into the community."
Mohney said the club is the county's largest
donor of Pinellas Education Foundation Doorway
Scholarships for low-income students.
Other projects supported by the club are Horses
for Handicapped, a program to give handicapped
children an opportunity to ride horses; Every
Child a Swimmer, a swim instruction program; a
wheelchair escort service Sundays at Bay Pines
VA Healthcare, Pinellas Village, dolls for kids at All
Children's Hospital and a teen parenting curricu-
lum at Pinellas Technical Education Center in
Clearwater.
The club also sponsors K-Kids at Ridgecrest El-
ementary School in Largo, Builders Club at Semi-
nole Middle and the Key Club at Seminole High.
The club meets Thursdays at 6:15 p.m. at
Roskamp Auditorium at Freedom Square.

Police beat


Trio arrested by deputies
LARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs Office deputies arrested
three persons Dec. 26 following the pursuit of a stolen truck.
Deputies located the truck, a 2005 Toyota Tundra, about
4:30 p.m. through a commercial stolen vehicle tracking service
as the vehicle was traveling northbound on 66th Street ap-
proaching Ulmerton Road.
Deputies initiated a traffic stop. When the driver did not
stop, deputies attempted to box the truck in. The suspect
however, continued on, leading deputies eastbound on Ulmer-
ton Road and then northbound on U.S. 19. Deputies say the
driver jumped out of the truck just south of Gulf-to-Bay Boule-
vard and crossed southbound lanes of traffic on U.S. 19 as
deputies pursued on foot.
When deputies caught up with the suspect, he resisted and
fought with deputies. Deputies used a Taser to subdue and ar-
rest 27-year-old Robert Milam of Hendersonville, Tenn.
Milam was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital for
treatment of non-life-threatening injuries he suffered in a fight
with deputies. Three deputies sustained minor cuts and
scrapes during the incident.
He was charged with grand theft auto, aggravated assault on
a law enforcement officer with a motor vehicle, fleeing and
eluding, resisting arrest with violence, resisting arrest without
violence, and possession of marijuana.
Tiffany Pennock, 27, and a 17-year-old male remained in
the stolen truck and were charged with grand theft auto.
Milam's total bond was set at $71,250 and Pennock at
$5,000.

Police arrest 13
in reverse drug sting
CLEARWATER A reverse drug operation netted 13 arrests
on Dec. 10 in Clearwater, according to a Clearwater Police re-
port.
There had been ongoing drug activity on the 1200 block of
Cleveland Street and the 1400 block of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard,
so in response, police did a reverse drug sting, which resulted
in the following arrests and seizures:
Clifton Moore, 46, of St. Petersburg, charged with posses-
sion of crack cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on his own re-
cognizance. Police also say he tried to purchase cocaine.
John Hamm, 36, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of crack cocaine and was being held at the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail in lieu of $750 bond. Police also said he tried to
purchase cocaine.
Elton Garcia, 39, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of crack cocaine and was released from the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail on a $2,000 bond. Police also said he tried to purchase
cocaine.
Eugene Hanson, 43, of Clearwater was charged with pos-
session of counterfeit crack cocaine and was released from the
Pinellas County Jail on a $1,500 bond. Police also said he tried
to buy cocaine.
Dean Haines, 45, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of cocaine and was released on his own recognizance. Po-
lice also said he tried to buy cocaine.
Joseph Vella, 30, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of crack cocaine and was released on a $1,500 bond. Po-
lice also say he tried to buy cocaine.


Trisha Godbey, 28, of Clearwater was charged with two
counts of violation of parole for obtaining property in return for
a worthless check, possession of dextroamphetamine, posses-
sion of counterfeit crack cocaine, and possession of drug para-
phernalia. Police also say she tried to purchase cocaine. She
was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a $5,150 bond.
Truet Edwards, 43, of Clearwater was charged with pos-
session of cocaine and was being held at the Pinellas County
Jail in lieu of a $750 bond. Police also said he tried to buy co-
caine.
Jamie Bames, 42, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of methadone, possession of vicodin, and possession of
drug paraphernalia. She was released from the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail on a $4,150 bond.
Jacqueline Tate, 23, of Clearwater was charged with sale of
cocaine and possession of cocaine. She was released from the
Pinellas County Jail on a $7,000 bond.
Dexter McCloud, 27, of Clearwater was charged with pos-
session of marijuana and manufacture of cocaine with intent
to sell. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a
$10,150 bond.
Derek Jenkins, 31, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of marijuana and manufacture of cocaine with the intent
to sell. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a
$10,150 bond.
Shawn Tisdale, 32, of Clearwater was charged with posses-
sion of marijuana and manufacture of cocaine with the intent
to sell. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a
$10,150 bond.
Police also seized a 1995 Ford Mustang, a 2006 Ford Tau-
rus, a Chrysler mini van and about $500.

Woman arrested
on numerous charges
CLEARWATER Clearwater Police arrested a St. Peters-
burg woman for numerous charges at the Marshall's store at
21323 U.S. 19 on Dec. 16, according to a Clearwater police
report.
Santana Gamble, 25, allegedly entered the store and re-
moved the anti-theft devices from a pair of boots, stole that
item and one other item and left the store, the report said.
She was approached by the loss prevention and shopping
mall security guard, and as they tried to arrest her at her ve-
hicle, she managed to get inside the car. She tried to run over
the security guard, struck two parked cars, and bit the
guard, the report said.
The investigation revealed a large amount of merchandise
that was admittedly stolen from Ross Stores in Hillsborough
County, the report said, and there were more than 70 items,
including shoes, clothing, electronics, games, and toys, all
from Ross and Family Dollar. Many had tags removed al-
ready, and police were in the process of coordinating with the
Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office about the case. Police
said she may be part of an organized crime ring operating in
Clearwater and neighboring jurisdictions.
Gamble was charged with petit theft, resisting arrest with-
out violence, possession or use of an anti shoplifting device,
aggravated assault, criminal mischief, resisting a merchant's
employee, driving with license suspended or revoked, and
felony battery. She was released from the Pinellas County Jail
in lieu of a $41,250 bond.

Largo discusses design
for recreation center
LARGO City commissioners are lean-
ing toward the option of building a
39,862-square-foot Highlands recreation
center instead of alternative plans that
will result in a smaller facility.
At their work session Dec. 16, commis-
sioners said the larger center, with the
construction costs estimated to be $13.6
million, would best meet their needs for
the future.
"Let's get the bigger bang for your
buck," Commissioner Curtis Holmes said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said it would be less
expensive to build the bigger facility now
than to pay additional costs of expanding
it later. Commissioner Gig Arntzen
agreed.
"I think looking down the road 20 years
from now, 30 years from now, the growth,
the opportunities that are available for
the difference in price, the difference in
size, I think we should shoot for option
C," she said.
Option B calls for a 34,006-square-foot
building at $12.6 million. Option A calls
for a 26,834-square-foot building at
$11.5 million.
Some Commissioners also liked plans
for two-full sized courts one for basket-
ball and the other for other sports but
they spoke out against an indoor track.
"I'm not sure we need an indoor jogging
track," said Mayor Pat Gerard. "Because I
wouldn't want to go around the building
15 times to get in a mile, especially if I
was going to run three miles."
She said she would rather see the
track going through a wooded area be-
cause people run "outside in Florida."
City officials will continue to discuss
the design plans for the complex with the
City Commission in the ensuing months.
All the options are within the budget
for the project.
'We also want to emphasize particular-
ly with regard to the cost of this project
that we are designing and ultimately con-
structing not just a recreation building
but an active park setting with numerous
amenities on that site," said Assistant
City Manager Henry Schubert.

New community center
slated to open
LARGO Here's a peek at the new
Largo Community Center: Soft lighting, a
mosaic with a woodlands theme, large
touch screen computers, low-resistance
exercise equipment, decorative drainage


devices, an auditorium, a card room, a
kiln.
Getting the picture? If not, the image
will become sharper for visitors during
the grand opening of the center Sunday,
Jan. 9.
"I think the major point about any
public building is that explaining what
something looks like early in the process
is nearly impossible," said Jason Jensen,
an architect on the project. "The only
thing you can do is have the best team -
the best from the city, your architect,
your consultants come together to en-
sure the best product.
"Getting it across in a commission
meeting on images it's like seeing
Michelangelo's (work) in person or seeing
a picture of it. It's entirely different. You
can't get the feeling of a sculpture until
you are there," said Jensen.
Construction of the $10 million
30,000-square-foot Community Center,
located at 400 Alt. Keene Road, was
mostly completed by the end of Novem-
ber.
'The building was built with the reduc-
tion of maintenance costs in mind," said
Largo Management Analyst Charles Jor-
dan.
City officials expect to have little main-
tenance on the exterior of the building.
Because the walls are made of colored
concrete, they shouldn't require painting
over the estimated lifespan of the build-
ing, which is 35 years.
They also don't expect to increase the
size of the existing staff even though the
building is 10,000 square feet more than
the old community center.
A lobby has a central open area for
staff that provides them with "a whole
look throughout the complex" instead of
spreading them throughout the building,
Jordan said.
Monitors will provide security service
cameras footage so "staff can see what's
gong on around the building," Jordan
said.
"At the same time we have developed a
greeter's station for the volunteers to help
out the community center so they can do
more of the personal interaction with the
patrons coming into the center, so our
staff is working on the programming
that's going on at the center," Jordan
said.
The building has about a dozen rooms
for programs, such as the card room. A
1,200-square-foot fitness center has low-
resistance exercise equipment designed
more for senior citizens.

Zazzaro a YoungArts finalist
CLEARWATER Hannah Zazzaro of Palm Harbor, a senior at Coun-
tryside High, is a YoungArts finalist in voice.
She was chosen from almost 6,000 applicants in nine disciplines in
the visual, literary and performing arts. She will join about 150 final-
ists for YoungArts Week in Miami Jan. 10-15 for master classes by
world-renowned artists; performances exhibitions; a chance to be
named a Gold or Silver winner and travel to New York and have the
possibility of becoming a Presidential Scholar in the Arts.
'We are honored to recognize these fine young artists," said Christi-
na DePaul, president and CEO of YoungArts.
'They represent the next generation of extraordinary artistic talent,
and it is our hope that their experience with YoungArts will help com-
pel them to pursue their passions."
The students attending YoungArts Week were selected in a blind ad-
judication process from a pool representing all 50 states and the Dis-
trict of Columbia, as well as U.S. territories.
The adjudication process will continue during YoungArts Week to
determine who will become Gold, Silver, Level I, Level II and Level III
winners.
Gold winners receive $10,000 and Silver winners receive $5,000.
Additionally, awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 are presented to
students exhibiting excellence in their discipline on three levels.

Beacon, December 30, 2010 Outdoors 9A


This is the season of Billie's blessing | |


The dolphins are doing what they always do this time of year: slowly
vanishing from the study area. Still, a handful of dolphins remain. We
see an average of six to eight dolphins per winter survey, give or take
five.
That means that we may see none, or one to a dozen or more.
So far this winter, the dolphins
have been cavorting around like
colts on the spring day. Dolphin
Capt. John Heidemann and I are
also doing what we always do this Watch
time of year: joking that the dolphins Ann Weaver
hang around until the Treasure Is-
land Christmas Boat Parade and
then leave until spring. We've had this impression for a long time, but
never tested it.
Billie Lee started the Treasure Island Christmas Boat Parade in the
late 1970s. An avid boater and businessman, who owned Island Rent-
A-Car for 33 years, Billie got together with Sam Smith and another
buddy and no doubt ruddy with good holiday cheer paraded their
well-lit boats up and down the fingers of Paradise Isle.
Billie's idea grew, and today dozens of brilliantly decorated boats
launch the holidays when they wind their way brightly into John's
Pass.
As much as for Christmas jollies and analytical spoofing as actual
curiosity, I decided to find out if the dolphins stay until the boat pa-
rade. (What good are statistics if you can't have fun with them?)
The idea was to compare the number of dolphins we see in the win-
ter weeks before the parade to the number of dolphins we see in a


comparable time after the parade to see if they're significantly different.
If the dolphins "waited" until the boat parade, there would be more be-
fore the parade than after.
I ran the numbers for the boat parades since 2005. In the process, I
discovered that Billie's parade is still an informal affair, undoubtedly
with his blessings. The dates of the boat parade bounce around the
month of December as a young dolphin bounces around our water-
ways.
In 2005, for instance, the parade was on Dec. 1. In 2009, it took
place on Dec. 20.
I won't bore you with the statistical details; as Christmas presents
go, that'd be a gift of coal. Briefly, I coded the data and ran the neces-
sary statistical tests.
Though mostly as a holiday spoof, I was actually curious to know if
the dolphins showed any response to the boat parade. Dolphins are
tremendously intelligent. Intelligence is liberally laced with curiosity.
Our local dolphins are a very curious lot.
There was a great example of dolphin curiosity the other day. The
last of the barges that had been assembled for the building of the new
John's Pass Bridge was being tugged away (one tugboat pushed it and
a second tugboat pulled it). A third tugboat, standing by, was roaring
its engines to shave back a sandbar that has been growing in an im-
portant but narrow channel
Its efforts belched up tons of sea floor sand, and possibly something
for a dolphin to eat as well. In any case, a lone dolphin cut across a
sea grass meadow, swung under our bow in greeting, and continued
past, heading straight into this curious new activity.
In case I've roused your curiosity about the dolphins and Billie's


rIIulu uy 'MN'IN VVERtVir
Dolphins like little Peewee are intelligent and curious and can do lots of
things. But they never wear Santa Claus hats at sea.

Boat Parade, the results are like those Christmas gifts you have to
think about.
In 2005, before bridge construction began, there actually were more
dolphins before the parade than after. However, during bridge con-
struction, there was no difference.
Now I'm curious about ... what do dolphins see when they see
Christmas lights? Do they like them? Always more statistical presents
to open. Happy holidays!

Trout season kicks off this weekend Gardeners can keep Florida colorful


Saturday marks the opening of what will
hopefully be another good trout season for west
central Florida.
The stage is most definitely set cool clean
water through-
out the Intra- Fish Tales
coastal
Waterway Capt. Tyson
makes it much Wallerstein
easier to see the
deeper grass
flats often synonymous with holding schools of
trout.
When the wind is light, drift fishing over 3- to
6-foot grass flats will allow you to cover water
and find where the larger trout are holding.
Many veteran trout anglers will often deploy a
sea anchor when drift fishing.
This not only slows your drift on breezy days
but also keeps the bow of your boat pointing
downwind, allowing you to present your lures
better. Fan cast soft plastic jigs like Pumpkin
Jigs Slammer's in avocado red glitter or motor
oil, or try hard baits like Mirro-dine's and Catch
2000's by Mirro-Lure.
This is also the time of year that local bait


shops see a definite increase in shrimp sales.
When the water gets cold, baitfish populations
begin to thin out. Scaled sardines can't be found
in the huge schools like a few week's ago, but
can still be chummed up and cast netted over
the grass flats (usually near the passes), making
live shrimp the best choice for those using live
bait.
Free-lining a tail hooked shrimp with an up-
current cast would be the preferred presenta-
tion, but current and wind can often be too
strong to allow your bait to reach the depth nec-
essary to catch the trout.
So a small split shot can be added to get the
bait down. When fishing shallower flats the use
of a float will help to keep the bait up and out of
the grass, making sure that you're still making
up-current casts. Trout (especially big trout) like
the bait to be moving naturally with the tide.
Happy New Year and get bent!

Gardeners were challenged in 2010 by the
weather. Our plants have struggled through 100-
degree temperatures to 30 or below; soaking
rains, to drought.
At some point,
dragging plants
into the house or G, Cdc
garage and cov- y(B'
ering landscape Ruth Davies
plants has whip- Ruth Davies
ped some gar-
deners.
Three cheers to those whose yards are still at-
tractive due to tender loving care.
Snowbirds and visitors will be arriving soon to
enjoy our more temperate climate that is, as-
suming we won't have snow.
When I visited family who were Florida snow-
birds, I always wondered why there wasn't more
color in the landscape.
In the North we used flowering annuals in the
summer that provided color in our yards. Too
many mass plantings are just tropical greens.
Nothing wrong with that, but a punch of color
is dramatically eye-catching. Snapdragons, petu-


nias and pansies are a few of the colorful annuals
we can grow during winter.
When the temperatures are sitting in the 50s
and 60s, it's hard to think about gardening.
So start a shopping list for planting your first
2011 edible garden and fertilizer for existing fruit
trees. If your lawn had crabgrass last season,
shop for a pre-emergence weed killer. That too is
on the January schedule.
If you are fortunate enough to grow camellias,
remember to remove the dead flowers to the
garbage can. If left on the ground, fungus is en-
couraged to grow that will be a detriment to the
plant.
If you want to transplant trees or large shrubs,
this is a good time to do it. Just remember to
water adequately, neither too much nor too little.
Happy New Year and happy gardening in 2011.
I enjoy meeting my readers. On Jan. 14, at 10
a.m., I will be giving a talk on herbs at the Clear-
water Garden Club, 405 Seminole St. in Clearwa-
ter. Please join us.

ST. MARTHA
Thank you, Saint Martha, for favors
granted. The following prayer is to be
said for nine consecutive Tuesdays:
Saint Martha, I resort to your protection
and faith. Comfort me in all my difficul-
ties and, through the great favor you
enjoy in the house of my savior, inter-
cede for me and my family. (Say three
Hail Marys.) I beseech thee to have in-
finite pity in regard to the favor I ask of
thee, Saint Martha, (name favor) and
that I may be able to overcome all diffi-
culties. Amen.
This prayer has never been known to
fail. You will receive your intention on
or before the ninth Tuesday, no matter
how impossible it might seem. Publica-
tion must be promised.

EDITORIAL


Consolidation



makes sense
Madeira Beach and Treasure Island officials are considering the
merger of their fire departments.
Among the advantages of the merger is that the fire departments
should be able to improve their fire-protection rating through the state
Insurance Services Office. That's beneficial because it could result in
lower home insurance rates for residents and businesses.
Though many details need to be worked out in the proposal, consoli-
dation of two departments into one is an efficient means of cutting
costs. It could result in reduced administrative, personnel and equip-
ment costs.
At a time when municipal governments are strapped for revenue, of-
ficials should strive to make the most out of any opportunity to consid-
er mergers and shared services.
In the past couple of years, a few other Pinellas County municipali-
ties have seen cost savings from sharing services or having them ab-
sorbed by larger entities.
For instance, Belleair Bluffs began contracting with Largo for fire-
suppression services in October.
To date there have been no rumblings about the service Largo pro-
vides Belleair Bluffs. Largo recently took action that should further de-
crease costs for both entities by buying property on Indian Rocks Road
for a new fire station that is designed to replace stations in the Ridge-
crest area and Belleair Bluffs.
By consolidating the two stations, Largo hopes to reduce personnel
in the stations by half. City officials expect the savings to be $500,000
to $1 million annually.
Such projected costs savings make a strong argument for consolida-
tion. Here's hoping that other local governments will become more ag-
gressive in ensuing years in pursuing the concept further.

Orange Grove Elementary School in Seminole is participating in a
new national recycling program called Dream Machine Recycle Rally,
which is sponsored by Pepsi and Waste Management.
Orange Grove and 11 other Pinellas schools have a chance to earn
monthly $5,000 cash prizes and a $100,000 Dream Green School
Makeover for the top-producing school.
The leader nationwide by a large margin is Orange Grove, with an
average of 37.6 containers per student.
The school's 19-member Green Team has put their hearts into this
worthwhile project. Orange Grove and other schools involved in the na-
tional recycling program should be commended for their enthusiastic
efforts to promote recycling and recognizing the importance of going
green.

LETTERS
Jimmy Johnson is a giving person
Editor:
I met (Seminole Mayor) Jimmy Johnson, for the first time, in August
of 1980, when a group of Seminole Rotarians invited him and me to an
organizational meeting for a new Rotary Club. This new club was to be
the Seminole Lake Rotary Club (still meeting at the Roskamp Auditori-
um at Freedom Square every Friday at 7:15 a.m.) and we were two of
the over 25 charter members. I was quick to discover that Jimmy, as he
likes to be called, had an energy level that the Energizer Bunny could
not match.
During our first year, Jimmy organized the first Kid's Appreciation
Day and helped fund it through his affiliation as the Kmart manager.
Our club was very involved in organizing this event and it is still a signa-
ture event of the Greater Seminole Area Chamber of Commerce.
Elementary school children are honored and appreciated by the Semi-
nole Community on their last day of school and I believe that this is a
unique celebration all because of Jimmy.
The Park Boulevard Bridge was being built and a celebration to honor
its dedication was completely organized by Jimmy with help of the Ro-
tary Club. I remember the luncheon that was held at the Le Pompano
Restaurant (currently the location of Salt Rock Grill) and how we all
walked over to have lunch as part of the dedication and celebration.
When Christmas rolled around, Jimmy immediately went to work to
provide for needy families by having a donation tree at his store and
finding the families through local agencies and churches.
Teachers were next on his list and he organized the local Teacher of
the Year celebration that later became Educator of the Year and is still a
signature event of the Greater Seminole Area Chamber.
While working with Kmart in Winter Haven, Jimmy discovered the
Mission Guadalupe, a Catholic mission dedicated to serving the many
migrant workers and their children. He organized a fund and toy raising
for their Christmas season over 20 years ago and has continued this ef-
fort to this day. Recently, he raised over $2,000 and a trunk full of toys
for the over 400 children that Sister Paula Schwendinger and her volun-
teer, Carmen Rodriguez drove over to pick up at the Chamber office. We
all had breakfast at the Hometown Restaurant and the owner, Maria
Vasilidias, presented more toys to Sister Paula and paid for the break-
fasts we all enjoyed.

A waste of resources
Editor:
I found out last week that since at least half the city of Pinellas Park
has curbside recycling pick-up on Saturday, and Christmas and New
Year's Day are both on Saturday, there will be no curbside recycling
pick-up for those two weeks. Which means many households will have
three weeks worth of recycling gathering up.
This produces a problem. Due to the inconvenience of that amount of
recyclable materials not fitting into one recycling bin, I can see many
city residents deciding to toss these items into the garbage. Not only is
this a waste of resources and adding unnecessary bulk to our landfills,
but also I believe this could cost the city money.
The following line was taken from the City Council Agenda, Nov. 23,
2010.
"Due to the efforts of the community, the avoided disposal fee savings
has resulted in a twelve-month credit of approximately $67,798."
This 12-month amount figures to a two-week credit of $2,607,615 for
the city, which stands to be lost if enough of the residents decide to dis-
pose of the recyclables in the garbage for those lost pick-ups.
I would like to see the City Council try to find some way to accommo-
date the recycling pickup for those two weeks.

Firemen help out Meals on Wheels
Editor:
I am a long time Meals on Wheels volunteer assigned to the Seminole
Recreation Center pickup site.
On Nov. 29, midway through attempting a delivery on 108th Street,
my car's battery died. After knocking on a few neighborhood doors hop-
ing to use a phone, I walked to the Seminole Fire Station on 110th Av-
enue to call the Meals on Wheels office and enlist help in completing the
meal delivery.
I called the office number only to de connected to a local business. At
first, I thought I had misdialed the number but the person at the busi-


ness explained they were having phone problems. She was most helpful
in taking my information and volunteering to contact Meals on Wheels
with my message.
All of this was taking precious time from providing the Meals on
Wheels hot food at an acceptable temperature and putting recipients in
doubt of receiving their meals. Noting my distress, the firemen on duty
volunteered to complete the delivery rather than wait for a response
from Meals on Wheels.
Thanks to Lt. Joe Brandau, and firemen Eric Fayad and Brendan
Holcomb of Seminole Fire Rescue, the Meals on Wheels clients received
their meals in a timely manner. It is heartening to know compassion is
still part of our daily lives.
Seminole residents can be proud of their fire department personnel
who have my sincere thanks for coming to my aid.

Grinch didn't ruin my Christmas


The Grinch visited my apartment com-
plex, just a few days before Christmas.
He broke into my car, stole presents
from my trunk and attempted to steal the
CD player, ripping the frame of the center
console and leaving the controls for the air
conditioning and hazard lights hanging
from their wires. Given the rush of the hol-
iday, I haven't had the time to get it fixed,
and my insurance has assured me the
stolen presents won't be covered. I've been
left with the jarring sight of my car's disem-
boweled entrails and a guilty conscience
every time I climb into my driver's seat.
I've never harbored the illusion that my
decade-old Hyundai was a fortress of secu-
rity. In fact, its greatest defense against
thieves and burglars is the dilapidated con-
dition I've worked hard to maintain and a
long-held policy to keep nothing of value in-
side. True, the CD/MP3 player is an up-
grade from the factory-installed radio and
cassette player it replaced, but it's too old to
have a resale value greater than $35 on the
black market. Cosmetically, there are more
things broken than working in my car, a
fact that may have deterred the Grinch from
stealing the car outright after he so miser-
ably failed to extract its single feature of
value.
I wasn't incredibly surprised to find my
car so desecrated that Wednesday morning.
What shocked me more was what the
Grinch didn't steal: my whole collection of
CDs and a digital camera left in the trunk.

Opening this week

No new films set to open previous releases vie for box office dollars


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

For the week between the Christmas and New Year's holidays, Holly-
wood has no new movies opening in wide release.
Last week's offerings, including "Country Strong," "Guillver's Trav-
els," "Little Fockers" and 'True Grit," will continue to battle for the top
box office spot. Meanwhile, a number of films will open in limited re-
lease at selected theaters across the country. It may be several weeks
before these movies appear in local movie theaters.

'Another Year'
Genre: Foreign
Cast: Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Philip Davis, Ruth Sheen,
Lesley Manville and David Bradley
Director: Mike Leigh
Rated: PG-13
Over four seasons, a happily-married middle-aged couple endure
other people's problems, enjoy their son's newly discovered partner
and cope with an unexpected family bereavement.

'Biutiful'
Genre: Foreign and drama
Cast: Javier Bardem, Maricel Alvarez, Eduardo Fernandez, Diarya-
tou Daff and Blanca Portillo
Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Rated: R
"Biutiful" is a love story between a father and his children.
This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to rec-
oncile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst
the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona. His livelihood is
earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds.
Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins. As fate
encircles him and thresholds are crossed, a dim, redemptive road
brightens, illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child,
and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life's corridors, whether
bright, bad or biutiful.

'Blue Valentine'
Genre: Drama and romance
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams, John Doman, Mike Vogel


Photo by DAVI RUSSO/THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY
Ryan Gosling stars as Dean and Michelle Williams as Cindy in Derek
Cianfrance's "Blue Valentine."

and Maryann Plunkett
Director: Derek Cianfrance
Rated: R
"Blue Valentine" is the story of love found and love lost told in past
and present moments in time.
Flooded with romantic memories of their courtship, Dean and Cindy
use one night to try and save their failing marriage. Ryan Gosling and
Michelle Williams star in this honest portrait of a relationship on the
rocks.

Studios offer a peek at "i


2011 lineup of movies O \1 A


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

With this year's most memorable films already
starting to fade into history, Hollywood studios are
busy hyping next year's feature film lineup with
teasers and Internet trailers.
First ... what were the best movies of 2010?
To date, the top box office moneymakers include
'Toy Story 3," "Alice in Wonderland," "Iron Man 2,"
'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and "Inception." "Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1," released
Nov. 19, has already made it into the top ten and
will almost certainly be in the top three by the end
of the year.
While most of the top ten box office success sto-
ries this year aren't particularly surprising, some of
the year's biggest flops are. Stars Benicio Del Toro
and Anthony Hopkins couldn't keep 'The Wolfman"
from exiting theaters quickly, its proverbial tail
tucked between its legs. Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood,"
starring Russell Crowe, may have proved that one
more adaptation of an age-old tale may not always
be a wise move.
Disney had two very strong releases in 2010 ...
and then there was the Nicolas Cage film "The
Socerer's Apprentice" which apparently lacked the
magic to find a place in the urban fantasy niche.
Disney's "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" didn't
live up to its potential, either, providing yet another
indication that movies based on video games aren't
sure-fire box office winners.
It's difficult to qualify 'The A-Team" as a flop since
it brought in $75 million. Keep in mind, though, it
cost $110 million to make. Other films which un-
derperformed in 2010 include "Jonah Hex," "Scott
Pilgrim vs. the World" and "Repo Men."
It was a particularly bad year for M. Night Shya-
malan. Many movie-goers and film critics seem to
be pointing at Shyamalan's 'The Last Airbender" as
the biggest flop of 2010.
While the films of 2010 seemed centered on
super-heroes, fantasy tales and sauve vampires,
next year's lineup ... well, next year's lineup boasts
more of the same. Following are some of the high-
lights and potential flops of the 2011 movie line-
up. Release dates are subject to change.

Comic book capers
"Green Lantern" will be released June 17.
Set in a universe as vast as it is mysterious, the
film examines a small but powerful force which
has existed for centuries: the Green Lantern
Corps.
A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep inter-
galactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring
that grants him superpowers. But when a new
enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the bal-
ance of power in the Universe, their fate and the
fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest re-
cruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan


(Ryan Reynolds).
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the
Green Lanterns have little respect for humans,
who have never harnessed the infinite powers of
the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing
piece to the puzzle, and along with his determina-
tion and willpower, he has one thing no member of
the Corps has ever had: humanity.
With the encouragement of fellow pilot and
childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if
Hal can quickly master his new powers and find
the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to
be not only the key to defeating Parallax ... he will
become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
"The Green Hornet" will be released Jan. 14.
That's right: Two green heroes for 2011.
Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los An-
geles' largest newspaper fortune, is a rich, spoiled
playboy who has been happy to maintain a direc-
tion-less existence.
When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson)
dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful
company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They realize
that they have the resources to do something
worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of
James Reid's shadow. Kato builds the ultimate
weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car
with every weapon imaginable and Britt decides
that in order to be heroes, they will pose as vil-
lains.
With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore
Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief crim-
inal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky
(Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs
under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green
Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal
underworld he controls.
That's just the beginning. Other super-heroes
schedule to leap from comic book pages onto the big
screen in 2011 include "Thor," directed by Kenneth
Branagh, on April 11; "X-Men: First Class," direct-
ed by Matthew Vaughn, on June 3; and "The First
Avenger: Captain America," directed by Joe John-
ston, on July 22.

Worlds of fantasy
"Season of the Witch" will be released Jan. 7.
Oscar winner Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman star
in this supernatural action adventure about a hero-
ic Crusader and his closest friend who return home
after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their
world destroyed by the Plague.
The church elders, convinced that a girl accused
of being a witch is responsible for the devastation,
command the two to transport the strange girl to a
remote monastery where monks will perform an an-
cient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They em-
bark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will
test their strength and courage as they discover the
girl's dark secret and find themselves battling a ter-


Jason Momoa stars in "Conan," which is due out on Aug. 19.


rifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate
of the world.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part
2" will be released July 15.
In Part 2 of the epic finale, the battle between the
good and evil forces of the Wizarding world escalates
into an all-out war.
The stakes have never been higher and no one is
safe. Harry Potter may be called upon to make the
ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic
showdown with Lord Voldemort.
Looking for more fantasy titles? Hollywood will
conjure up many more in 2011 including a new
adaptation of Robert E. Howard's pulp barbarian
"Conan," directed by Marcus Nispel, on Aug. 19;
and the next installment of Disney's popular fran-
chise "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger
Tides," on May 20.

Wolves and vampires
"Red Riding Hood" will be released March 11.
The film follows Valerie (Amanda Seyfried), a
beautiful young woman torn between two men.
Valerie is in love with a brooding outsider Peter
(Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged
for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Un-
willing to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are
planning to run away together when they learn that
Valerie's older sister has been killed by the werewolf
that prowls the dark forest surrounding their vil-
lage.
For years, the people have maintained an uneasy
truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly
animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the
wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life.
Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed were-
wolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help
them kill the wolf. But Solomon's arrival brings un-
intended consequences as he warns that the wolf,
who takes human form by day, could be any one of

them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Va-
lerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be
someone she loves.
Panic grips the town as Valerie discovers that she
has a unique connection to the beast--one that in-
exorably draws them together, making her both
suspect ... and bait.
"Priest" will be released May 13.
"Priest" is a western-fused post-apocalyptic
thriller, is set in an alternate world one ravaged by
centuries of war between man and vampires.
The story revolves around a legendary Warrior
Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who
now lives in obscurity among the other downtrod-
den human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities
ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is
abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest
breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obses-
sive quest to find her before they turn her into one
of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's
boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young
wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess
(Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting
skills.
A number of popular franchises in this genre also
will continue in 2011, including "Twilight Saga:
Breaking Dawn, Part 1," on Nov. 18; and "Scream
4" on April 15.

Science fiction fun
"The Adjustment Bureau" will be released
March 4.
The film asks "do we control our destiny, or do
unseen forces manipulate us?"
Matt Damon stars in this thriller as a man who
glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and
realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must
pursue the only woman he's ever loved across,
under and through the streets of modem-day New
York.

of cult classic status. The original
film pioneered the use of comput-
er graphics, virtual sets and
backlit effects with a mix of
70mm live action, computer
graphics and hand-drawn anima-
tion. With a new generation of
video game consoles and video
games including first-person
shooters, sims, TRPGs, MUDs
and MMOs updating 'Tron" for
modem day audiences seems log-
ical.
One wise move on Disney's
part: They chose to make 'Tron:
Legacy" a standalone film, realiz-
ing that a significant percentage
of the audience may be unfamil-
iar with the original release.
"Tron: Legacy" takes place
more than two decades after the
original. The audience quickly
learns that Kevin Flynn (Jeff
Bridges), who made it out of the
Grid in the first film, went on to
take control of Encom, the com-
pany he founded with his long-
time friend and associate, Alan
Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner). Just
as Kevin was on the verge of a
major breakthrough, he disap-
peared, leaving his son behind.
Fast forward: a pager signal
draws now-adult Sam (Garrett
Hedlund) to Flynn's Arcade where
he is transported to the Grid.
There, he discovers his father has
been trapped for 20 years. At this
point, the film becomes a quest:
Sam and Kevin try to escape the
Grid while CLU tries to stop
them. CLU, by the way, is a mas-
ter program created in his own
image to help him oversee the ex-
pansion of the digital domain.
CLU turned on Kevin and seized
control of the Grid.

Garrett Hedlund stars as Sam Flynn in "Tron: Legacy."


So that's the story. If the
screenplay, by Adam Horowitz
and Edward Kitsis, seems a bit
bare bones ... it is. Few charac-
ters are well developed and few
plot twists are added. Everything
is predictable. If this was a video
game, the player would fly
through it on the first attempt.
Bridges reprises his role as
Kevin Flynn, although there
seems to be a lot of Jeffrey 'The
Dude" Lebowski (from 'The Big
Lebowski) in the character, too.
It's a solid performance, given the
lean material from which he must
work. Bridges manages to inject
some spirituality into the role
that probably didn't exist on
paper and for that he is to be
commended.
Garrett Hedlund plays Kevin's
son Sam, a rebellious young man
driven to live life on the edge due
to his abandonment or so that
cliche goes. Hedlund doesn't real-
ly make the character particular-
ly likable or credible. His
performance is uncharismatic
and hopeless.
Olivia Wilde plays Quorra,
Kevin's confidante. Wilde does
manage to convey the character's
childlike fascination with Sam
and his world. She makes a bet-
ter action hero than Hedlund.
One of the film's best perform-
ances come from Michael Sheen -
who played Lucian in the "Under-
world" films. In 'Tron: Legacy," he
is Castor, owner of the End of the
Line Club on the Grid. Sheen
brings a bit of the Master of Cere-
monies from "Cabaret" to the
part. Castor is one of the few
well-developed characters in the


film, though the role is minor.
Bridges or his digitized reflec-
tion also plays CLU, a master
program created in his own
image to help him oversee the ex-
pansion of the digital domain.
CLU turned on Kevin and seized
control of the Grid. In this role,
Bridges is less convincing.
Playing Gem is Beau Garrett,
the most important of four Siren
programs who prepare programs
heading into fight in the gladiato-
rial games. Unlike Castor, no
light is shed on Gem's backstory
which keeps what could have
been an interesting character
from developing fully.
Boxleitner reprises his role as
Alan Bradley, though he gets so
little time on screen that his in-
clusion almost seems like an af-
terthought.
Billed as a "high-tech adven-
ture set in a digital world that is
unlike anything ever captured on
the big screen," Disney manages
to pull off some incredible effects
in 'Tron: Legacy," not the least of
which is digitally creating a
younger version of Bridges. But
eyecandy alone is not enough to
make 'Tron: Legacy" a success.
Actually, in addition to looking
great, 'Tron: Legacy" also sounds
great.
The electronically produced
music complements the visual
bouquet nicely. Daft Punk, the vi-
sionary pioneers of the art form,
gives the film a blend of progres-
sive house, funk, electro and
techno.
The flawed story, though,
makes all this just tasty icing on
a unappealing cake.

Tampa Bay area residents will soon be counting
down the final moments of 2010 and welcoming
2011.
Revelers will find several ways to ring in the new
year all around the area. Following are some of the
planned festivities:

REH to present Salute to Vienna
CLEARWATER The Strauss Symphony of
America will present Salute to Vienna on Friday,
Dec. 31, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 N. Mc-
Mullen Booth Road.
Guests will celebrate the New Year with Salute
to Vienna, a sensational performance inspired by
Vienna's world-famous New Year's Concert. The
show will bring the same splendor, charm and
beauty to North America. Attendees will fall in love
with Vienna's "Waltz King," Johann Strauss Jr., in
this unforgettable and uplifting performance of
music, song and dance.
The production features a cast of more than 75
musicians, European singers and magnificent
dancers and a new program showcasing operetta
excerpts, popular waltzes, polkas and marches.
Christian Schulz of Vienna will conduct. The
cast also includes Beatrix Lazin, soprano, Bu-
dapest; Joachim Moser, tenor, Vienna; and
dancers from the Kiev-Aniko Ballet of Ukraine and
International Ballroom Dance Champions.

Christie Lenee will perform Thursday, Dec. 30,

Lenee is a visionary of cosmic proportions, em-
bodied by magnetic waves of sound and the pulse
of melodic motion. Her music manifests passion,
electric energy, and soulful insight transmitted
from the heart and crafted into her compositions.


Lenee's keen sensibilities sit at the core of her ex-
pressions articulated through masterful guitar
pieces, poetic lyrics, vocals and orchestral move-
ments.
