City keeps March election date By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE After a brief discussion, the City Council decided to keep the citys traditional March date for the next city election. Councilors voted 5-2 on Oct. 25 to retain the March 13 date in spite of an opportunity to save $12,000 by moving the election back to Jan. 31 when the Republican Presidential Preference Primary is held. Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark offered to add municipal elections on the ballot in the primary election at no charge to towns and cities, which would save the countys municipalities the cost of staging their own elections. This (moving the election back to Jan. 31) goes against the intent of the city charter, said Councilor Leslie Waters. Were a non-partisan council and therefore this should be held as a non-partisan election. For that reason, I will not be voting for this. Councilor Thomas Barnhorn said he believed the switch made good financial sense. If we can have a larger turnout of voters and save the city $12,000, I dont see how you cannot be fiscally responsible (and vote in favor), Barnhorn said. Councilor Jim Quinn wondered how many voters would stay away from the polls because theyre not members of the Republican Party. Waters later said she might consider the measure if mail-out ballots go to all Seminole voters. However, Councilor Patricia Plantamura wasnt swayed.

City Manager Frank Edmunds said last week that developer Kitson and Partners of Palm Beach Gardens has submitted a site plan and, pending other county and state approvals, construction should begin sometime in the first quarter of 2012. Kitsons plans for the former Bay Pines Mobile Home Park include upscale apartments, space for retail stores and a restaurant, a hotel, space for a future fire station and an assisted living facility. The first phase of the project, Edmunds said, would be the 330-unit apartment complex on the west side of the site, following the installation of sewers and drainage by Kitson. According to the site plan, the name of the apartments will be Courtney at Bay Pines. They will encompass eight buildings varying in height from two to four stories; a clubhouse, pool and playground. Plans call for 134 one-bedroom apartments, 152 two-bedroom apartments and 26 three-bedroom units. Plans also call for a change in the location of the current frontage road, which will be moved slightly north onto the site to alleviate traffic congestion at the intersection of 110th Way and Bay Pines Boulevard. Entrances to the site will be off 100th Way on the east side and the reconfigured frontage road on the south side. The plan also calls for five ponds on the site using between 10 to 12 acres. There are currently three small ponds on the site that take up about four acres. If no variances from city code are necessary, the project could move forward without the scrutiny of the City Council. Only if a variance is necessary would City Council approval be necessary. Developer John Loder purchased the mobile home park in 2006 for $38.5 million. Bay Pines LP, headed by Loder, received approval on a development agreement in May 2007 for 1,119 condo units on the site that included a zoning change from residential low medium/mobile home to residential medium-15. However, tough economic times forced Loders company to suspend its plans and eventually the property went back to General Motors Acceptance Corp. Kitson purchased the site just over a year ago for $7.65 million. The City Council recently approved a development agreement with Kitson that opened the door for the project to move forward.Photo by BOB McCLUREWorkers from the city of Seminole Public Works Department clean up a load of spilled dirt Oct. 27 in the 9600 block of Seminole Boulevard. The dirt came out the rear of a dump truck that officials said did not have its tailgate properly tied down. The truck was transporting dirt from the construction site of a Pinellas County alum treatment facility at Lake Seminole and 88th Avenue. The accident occurred at 10:40 a.m. Top LEEDer Photo by BOB McCLURESeminole City Manager Frank Edmunds displays an award he received Oct. 18 from the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council for being named Outstanding Community LEEDer. The award recognizes an individual who demonstrates progressive initiatives and effort to green building design. The city recently opened its Public Works Administration/Emergency Operations Center and Public Works Operations Building on 70th Avenue. Both buildings were designed and constructed using the latest green building standards. Among other things, photovoltaic panels were installed on the roofs of both buildings and generate an estimated 86,732 kilowatts of electricity per year. Excess power produced is returned to the power grid or sold back to Progress Energy.County MPO director eyes Nov. 5 retirement By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER October 25 was the last time Pinellas Countys long-time director of planning and executive director of the Metropolitan Planning Organization would attend a commission meeting. Brian Smith is retiring, effective Nov. 5, after 41 years of service. Commissioners and County Administrator Bob LaSala took a few moments to thank Smith for the work hes done for Pinellas. Commissioner Chair Susan Latvala described Smith as a great asset to Pinellas County and a great public servant. Hes my historian, she said. Ill miss him. LaSala had the most to say about Smiths work at the county, saying during his first tour of duty (as a county employee), he had worked with Smith and it was a great experience to be reunited. Brians legacy is too big to recite in this meeting, he said. He said Smiths knowledge of growth management was unrivaled as was his contribution to the planning profession. He touched so much in this county, LaSala said. Smith modestly refused to take credit, saying he had been more interested in working on what people wanted to do. Ive been a facilitator and helper, he said. LaSala insists Smiths work has been much more. In a memo to staff, LaSala wrote about Smiths unswerving dedication to the people of Pinellas County. He said Smith has left an indelible mark on the current and future shape of the Tampa Bay area. His wealth of knowledge and experience has been one of the greatest assets and will be sorely missed. Smith earned a masters degree in urban regional planning and a bachelors degree in physics from Florida State University. See SMITH, page 4ASee Helping Hands ... Page 2A.

Because theres always something to do. Kafer was born a coal miners daughter in the little mining town of Greensboro, Pa. She grew up as a city girl, however, in Baltimore, Md., and moved around quite a bit with her husband, Gordon, who worked as an electrical engineer for Honeywell. They lived in Las Cruces, Minn., Sweden and then moved to Florida in 1972. She lives in an unincorporated area in the Seminole community. Soon, they discovered Heritage Village. Gordon and I would just come over here and walk around, said Kafer. It was wonderful, so peaceful and some of the artifacts would stir childhood memories. I promised myself that, after I finished working, I would become a volunteer. That time came in the late s when Kafer became a docent. It was just so rewarding, she said. Youd go through all the houses and you really did learn about history. Youd learn about Pinellas County. Kafer particularly enjoyed interacting with children. There was a time when we had lots of children. Busloads of children would come through, and the kids were just great. Kids like history. They really do. I think they are intrigued because it is so unreal to them. She remembers one group touring The House of Seven Gables who came upon some bone dishes (for depositing fish bones when eating a fish dinner) on display. She asked the kids the purpose of the dish. Members of the group would guess the dish was used for lemon slices or tartar sauce. I would explain the answer is bones; youd put your bones there when you were eating fish. And one child, maybe a fourth grader, looked up at me and said, Ive never found a bone in a fish stick, she said. Kafer has interacted with perhaps hundreds of visitors to Heritage Village over the years, some learning about history, others remembering history. She recalls one case in point with great fondness. An elderly lady and her family came from the East Coast to see The House of Seven Gables. It seems the womans parents had worked in and around the house when it stood proudly overlooking Clearwater Harbor in a bygone era. The house was closed because they were repairing the air conditioning system. But Kafer got the key, opened up the building and set about conducting this special tour. We went through the kitchen and went upstairs, said Kafer, and the elderly woman stopped at the top of the stairs. There was a window seat placed up against the far window and the woman said, I remember that window. The woman remembered standing on that window seat and leaning out of that very window when she was a little girl, calling to her mother on the ground down below. Kafer works in the Heritage Village gift shop now, and works with the Pinellas County Historical Society in support of Heritage Village.

PETERSBURG Two new exhibitions recently opened at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. The exhibit Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges will run through Jan. 21. General admission is $9 and may be applied to museum membership the evening of the event. To RSVP, call 820-0100, ext. 236. In 1935, an article in the Afro-American paper stated: We rejoice that our newspapers condemn German Nazi atrocities. Its a good sign that they may yet discover the Nazism which is outside their own doors. The relationship between two disenfranchised groups Jewish professors who fled Nazi Germany and African-American students and the unique bond that grew between them is the subject of this exhibition. Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow tells the story of Jewish academics from Germany and Austria who were dismissed from their teaching positions in the 1930s. After fleeing to America, some refugee scholars found positions at historically black colleges and universities in the Jim Crow South. The exhibition explores what it meant to the students to have these new staff as part of their community, how the students were affected by their presence, and what life was like for white, European Jews teaching at black colleges and universities. The exhibit looks at the empathy between two minority groups with a history of persecution, some of whom came together in search of freedom and opportunity, and shared the early years of struggle in the Civil Rights movement. The exhibit is inspired by Gabrielle Simon Edgcombs landmark book From Swastika to Jim Crow: Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges and the subsequent PBS documentary by Joel Sucher and Steven Fischler of Pacific Street Films. The exhibition includes artifacts, photographs and two new films, by Sucher and Fischler, featuring both the professors and the students. It begins with the dismissal of the refugee scholars from German universities and continues through their search for positions in the United States. The exhibition then highlights the backgrounds of the black students and follows the professors and students coming together to teach and learn and to share a community on campus. The exhibition includes their mutual participation in the Civil Rights movement and concludes with a look at the impact of the contributions of the professors and the students to American life. This exhibition is made possible through major funding from the Leon Levy Foundation. Additional support provided by the Helen Bader Foundation; The Lupin Foundation; The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation; public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency; the Alpern Family Foundation; and the Charles and Mildred Schnurmacher Foundation. The exhibit is presented locally by the Herman and Sally Boxser Diversity Initiative of Temple Beth Sholom of Sarasota and sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco counties. Presenting media sponsors are Bright House Networks and the St. Petersburg Times. The museum also is hosting the exhibition Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited through Feb. 5. This exhibit recounts the racially charged and tragic events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan in 1913 and the lynching of Leo Frank just two years later. National and local media covered the murders, which remain officially unsolved and controversial nearly a century later. On April 26, 1913, the body of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a white Christian girl, was found brutally murdered in the basement of the National Pencil Company in Atlanta. The 29-year-old Jewish superintendent of the factory, northern-bred Leo Frank, was arrested for the crime. Franks sensationalized trial; his conviction and his sentence to death were followed by Georgia Gov. John M. Slatons fateful decision in 1915 to commute Franks sentence to life in prison. That decision resulted in Franks kidnapping from the state prison and mob-led lynching outside of Marietta, Georgia, in Cobb County. These events captured the attention and sympathies of national and international audiences and launched far-reaching social, legal and cultural changes. Ironically the Frank episode stimulated both the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan and the reaffirmation of the mission of the Anti-Defamation League. The case was the driving force behind a number of Supreme Court rulings that redefined due process and sparked decades of debate over Franks innocence. Seeking Justice features interviews with descendants of family and friends of Leo Frank and Mary Phagan and other key players in the trial, new documentary materials, and artifacts that have never before been exhibited. The Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco counties sponsor the exhibit. The presenting media sponsors are Bright House Networks and the St. Petersburg Times. Admission to the Florida Holocaust Museum is $14 for adults. Admission is free to active duty military, FHM members and children 6 and younger. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Call 820-0100 or visit www.flholocaustmuse um.org.
4A SEB Beacon, November 3, 2011Smith began his career with the county in 1970 as a planner III, and within three years had risen through the ranks to the position of assistant director of planning. He became a certified planner in 1974. In 1981, he accepted the job of director of planning and the rest is now history. LaSala pinpointed Smiths development of a comprehensive growth management plan, which was the first to be accepted and approved by the state. LaSala said Smiths planning skills helps ensure prosperity for future generations of Pinellas County residents. Other accomplishments include involvement in the Penny for Pinellas initiative to fund infrastructure growth, establishment of a countywide transit system, improvements to the U.S. 19 corridor and implementation of the Geographic Information System and Intelligent Transportation System. LaSala said Smith played a key role in the Pinellas Trail from its inception. He also was involved in the Friendship TrailBridge and development of the countys historic preservation program. LaSala praised Smiths work with identification and acquisition of environmentally important lands. He is truly one of the leading architects of the countys landmark environmental legacy, LaSala said. Smith is a Doppelt Family Rail-Trail Champion, an award given to him by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in Washington, D.C. He is a charter member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. He was inducted as a Fellow in 2006 for his contributions to the profession. Brian has embraced the concept of leaving everything better than you find it, a trait that I greatly admire, LaSala wrote in his memo announcing Smiths retirement. His commitment to the wellbeing of Pinellas County is more than professional. He has been biking and kayaking to work for years, out of personal enjoyment and responsibility. LaSala says Smith likely will continue his tireless advocacy for the beauty and functionality of the place we call home. It has been a pleasure working side-by-side with Brian during both my tenures with Pinellas County, and while I am happy for my friend, I am sad to lose such an amazing public servant. Smiths colleagues and friends are celebrating his retirement on Thursday, Nov. 3, 5 to 8 p.m., at the Florida Botanical Gardens, 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Hors doeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available. In case of rain, the event will be held in the County Extension building. For more information, call 464-8200. SMITH, from page 1AThis is a presidential primary, she said. So it takes the election in a very partisan direction. Barnhorn and John Counts voted for the proposed change, while Quinn, Plantamura, Waters, Bob Matthews and Mayor Jimmy Johnson voted against it. In other action, councilors: Passed an ordinance on second reading that updates two sections of the city codes as they relate to the use of firearms and other weapons. The changes were necessary to comply with recent changes in state law. A failure to update would result in fines as high as $5,000. Voted unanimously to pass on second reading a development agreement for a 20-home subdivision at 9075 82nd Ave. Passed an ordinance on first reading for a zoning change from Residential Medium-15 to Residential Planned Development-15 at Lake Seminole Square, a 335-unit senior living facility at 8333 Seminole Blvd. The purpose of the zoning change is to allow for a liquor license and an on-site cocktail lounge. There was no opposition. The measure passed unanimously. Approved spending up to $80,000 for circulation material at the Seminole Community Library. Approved spending up to $15,300 from the Capital Improvement Plan fund for a self-checkout station at the city library. Gave City Manager Frank Edmunds the approval to enter into agreements with RMC Property Group to use the Seminole Mall property for staging the Bright Before Your Eyes Holiday Night Parade on Sunday, Dec. 11 and the Pow Wow Festival Parade on Saturday, March 10. Both parades start at the mall and go north on 113th Street to the Seminole Recreation Center. Voted unanimously to conduct the citys two council meetings next month on Tuesday, Dec. 6 and Tuesday, Dec. 13. The changes were made to avoid conflicts with holiday plans. The City Council normally meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. In other action, the city presented a $5,000 check to a representative from Seminole Youth Athletic Association. The city annually donates funds to the SYAA. Chris Hengstenberg, president of International Association of Firefighters Local 2896, gave a presentation in support of the concept of firebased medical transportation in Pinellas County. This is not only viable but would enhance and improve the services to residents of Pinellas County, Hengstenberg said. Im here tonight asking your support. Two Pinellas County firefighters are proposing an alternative to the countys proposed changes to deliver emergency medical services that they say will save county taxpayers $20 million over the next three years. Scott Sanford, president of the Palm Harbor/Oldsmar professional firefighters, and Jim Millican, a captain in the Lealman Fire District, have authored the Pinellas County EMS Providers Cost Containment and Sustainability Model, which utilizes fire-based medical transport over the current system, which uses private transportation. County commissioners will consider the proposal in the near future.

This coyote was seen recently along Indian Rocks Road in Largo.Madeira nuisance law fails to pass By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH In a surprise move, the city commission voted unanimously not to pass a nuisance abatement law that had been touted as the solution to a troubled neighborhoods crime and code enforcement problems. The ordinance, which would significantly cut down the time period needed to deal with code enforcement cases and levy heavy fines for noncompliance, had been seen by City Attorney Thomas Trask as solving every issue raised by the residents. However, residents of the neighborhood surrounding 145th Avenue have remained unconvinced. The commission has held several meetings on the nuisance law, including a special session on Oct. 24 specifically devoted to hearing citizens comments. At that meeting, Trask said changes had been made to deal with criminal activity. He named drug and gang activity, prostitution, and stolen property. The ordinance also reduced the wait time before removal of an inoperable vehicle from 10 days to 3. However, resident spokeswoman Elaine Poe said at the Oct. 25 regular commission meeting that the proposed ordinance was off track. We want something that deals with administrative action to abate drugs, she said. Poe said the residents do not want the current code replaced. There is already a Florida statute that has what is needed, Poe said. Commissioner Robin Vander Velde asked Trask why the city could not just enforce the Florida law. Trask replied the state provisions require a nuisance abatement board, which he has said would be less effective in dealing with the problems than the citys special magistrate. In a later interview, Poe said the neighborhoods basic problem has been landlords renting to drug felons. We want a law that holds them responsible, she said. The proposed ordinance left us with a great big hole, Poe said. It is too vague. Despite a number of meetings with the residents, Poe said Attorney Trask is not giving us what we want, which is going after the landlords. As to Trasks comment that the state statute would require the setting up of a nuisance abatement board, Poe said the statute mentions only an administrative board. That is a generic term that could include a special magistrate, Poe said she was told by state officials. Poe said she believes the current city code plus the state statute, and strict enforcement by the city is the most effective means of dealing with the neighborhoods problems. She praised interim city manager Jim Madden for hiring a code enforcement official, which began work on Oct. 31. The commission will continue discussion of the nuisance abatement law at its next workshop meeting. There, Poe said, she hopes to get everyone on the same page, and finally get it right.Indian Shores conducts first meeting in Municipal Center By JEANNIE CARLSONINDIAN SHORES After nearly two years of construction, the towns new Municipal Center opened its doors for the first Town Council meeting in the facility on Oct. 25. The date of the first meeting in the new building also marks the 90th anniversary of the 1921 hurricane that devastated the area nearly a century ago. Were (Indian Shores Town Hall) no longer vulnerable, said Councilor Bill Smith. After the demolition of the old town hall a week earlier, it was clear from the rubble that the old 1950s construction would never have sustained a direct-path hurricane like the one in 1921. The New Municipal Center meets all the current hurricane codes. The new fourth floor town hall meeting room is pleasant and functional compared to the dilapidated meeting room from the old building. The attractive dais, comfortable seating, carpeting and state-ofthe-art sound system make the new meeting room welcoming. According to Police Chief E.D. Williams, the new centers final completion will be the week after Thanksgiving. This includes the parking lot in front of the building, landscaping and paving. The bulk of the debris has been removed from the demolition of the old town hall. Intensive training regarding the mechanics of the building will be in process for the next three weeks. Power was cut to the electric sign facing Gulf Boulevard when the old town hall was demolished. The town hall sign had fed off the electric from the old building. Depending upon how the power to the sign is rerouted, the electric sign may take some time to restore. Mayor Jim Lawrence commended the towns staff members for their work in making the new center a reality, referring to the input of the Indian Shores staff as sweat equity. A grand opening is planned some time the week of Dec. 12 when Congressman Bill Young is slated to be available.Board of Adjustment appointmentsThe Town Council approved appointments to Seats 3 and 4 on the Board of Adjustment at the October meeting. David Jolly and Karl Olander have agreed to accept re-appointments to their previously held positions.

The Town Council is seeking an Indian Shores resident interested in assuming this appointment. The term expires Oct. 28, 2013.Penny for PinellasThe proposed Interlocal Agreement with Pinellas County for reimbursement from Penny for Pinellas funds was approved at the October meeting. The agreement pertains to Penny for Pinellas funds reimbursement of eligible Gulf Boulevard improvement projects.

The victims are now adult women. The crimes occurred when they were between the ages of 6 and 10 at Benjamin P. Ices former home on 82nd Avenue in unincorporated Seminole. Ice, 51, was arrested at his current home on Timber Bay Circle West in Oldsmar. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, one victim was sexually battered between 1994 and 1996, and the second victim was sexually battered between 2001 and 2005. The investigation began a week ago when the two victims came forward to report the abuse that occurred when they were small children. During their investigation, detectives were able to develop probable cause to arrest Ice. Detectives cannot release the details surrounding the crimes as it may tend to identify the victims who are known to Ice. However, detectives believe that based on their investigation, there may be other victims who have not yet come forward. Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding Benjamin Ice, to contact Crimes Against Children Unit Detective Eugene Paniccia at 727582-6779, or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers of Pinellas, Inc. at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).Motorcyclist killed in crash on U.S. 19PINELLAS PARK A motorcyclist was killed after crashing into the back of a Ford Taurus, stopped on the shoulder of U.S. 19 at around 8:35 p.m. Oct. 30, Pinellas Park police reported. Thomas Eugene Therp, 41, of St. Petersburg was thrown from his 1994 Harley-Davidson in the 12400 block of the highway. He landed in the roadway and was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene shortly thereafter. Therp was not wearing any safety equipment, police said. The first crash caused another motorcyclist Jason R. Long, 29, of St. Petersburg to lose control of his Suzuki motorcycle. Long was seriously injured as he slid several feet past Therp. The driver of the Taurus, parked in the emergency lane of the highway, was Faith A. Emmert, 34, of St. Petersburg. She was stopped to attend to one of her two juvenile passengers who was ill. Emmert and the children were uninjured. Based on preliminary evidence, police believe the motorcyclist had left his travel lane in order to hit the Taurus, which was completely off the roadway, department spokesman Sgt. Brian Unmisig said. However, investigators are looking into the possibility that the Taurus was parked partially in the roadway, Unmisig said.Minor injuries in bus crashLEALMAN One elementary student received minor injuries in a school bus crash on Haines Road and 64th Avenue in Lealman about 1:50 p.m. Oct. 26.

Troop 355 competed in nine events, including the grand finale the pumpkin chunkn. The catapult had to be built with completely natural material, with the exception of the pumpkin bucket, capable of flinging a 5-pound pumpkin. Adult Scout leaders were not allowed to speak to the scouts as they assembled their catapults under time constraints. The catapult was a huge success. Two launches were required for consistency and accuracy. The catapult performed flawlessly, twice hurling pumpkins up to 20 feet. Many of the other 18 catapults failed or broke down. Troop 355 meets each Monday evening at 7:30 in the Oakhurst United Methodist Church, Seminole.

After dropping 10 degrees in 48 hours last week, our water temperature now has jumped back up to 73 degrees, and has helped, especially inshore, in getting the fish back into a feeding mode rather than a defensive mode. Inshore, redfish have been the top target over the past few days, as windy weather has had the ICW pretty dirty, making it difficult to do much trout or mackerel fishing in the deeper more exposed water around the passes. Extreme low water situations have made it easy to find the absolute edge of the grass flats as well as reveling points that the fish will hang around as they wait for the water to come up and the slightly deeper troughs that theyll use as highways to get on and off of the flat. For artificial lures, try a topwater around a few key locations and then switch to something a little less likely to spook the fish such as a weedless jerk-bait. Our most successful tactic has been free-lining cut pieces of shad or lady fish just outside of the edge where the sand meets the grass. Offshore, we took advantage of a few postcard perfect days this past week and ran out a few miles for some gag grouper fishing before it closes again mid-month. We had consistent fishing in 50 feet of water; big live pinfish are definitely the bait of choice for the gags, its still a good idea to drop down a few dead baits before switching to live, as this will only help to get the bottom active. We also were able to get quite a few nice grunts and some big triggerfish on strips of squid on a tandem rig with size 1 hooks. Kingfish and Spanish mackerel are scarce right now but its still a good idea to have a flat line out while bottom fishing. With any luck our water temp will continue to rise or at least not drop too much with the up-coming cold-fronts. This will allow the schools of bait to settle back in and in-turn should attract the kingfish and mackerel. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Three-year-old Laska couldnt seem to contain herself. She popped up vertically at the water surface, rolled and dropped backwards. She twisted sideways over the water surface to land with the exaggeration of an 8-year-old drunk on somersaults. One aerial maneuver finally revealed the secret of her squirming: big bulls Lax and Midface on her heels. Their interaction could have gone many ways, but this day their bodies were loose and their socializing light and friendly. Laska got her mojo workin, playing with the big boys for one of the first times in her life! It was a fine fall day. The Florida sun, having retreated from its summer sear, now beamed down tepidly. Correspondingly, the water temperatures had begun their sudden dip from the mid-80s to the low 70s in just days. Theyd briefly bounce up and down, settle into the 60s, and with luck stay there until next spring. Were the dolphins just lively like horses and dogs in the cool of an autumn morn? Partly. But Laskas wiggly afternoon with the boys was also a conspicuous link in a string of changes among our local dolphins potentially ushered in by the frosty winter of 2010. That entire year, dolphin numbers were down. This year, dolphin numbers have dipped even lower. The forces that sparked the decrease may have changed the dolphin social landscape as well. For it has changed. The dolphins came back late this spring. Fewer came back than normal. Many were rare visitors to our waters. We didnt see any big dolphin parties this summer. Not everything has changed, however. Many of the bulls who return each spring to keep the gene pool fresh appeared as usual. Though the seas didnt necessarily boil with their competitive bullpen assemblies as in other years, several spent the summer sedately escorting some of our local ladies. There were also dolphin births as usual (the essential foundation, of course, to a viable dolphin community here). Six calves were born this year. Five survive as of this writing, one on the edge. The little calf Vidalia, whose notorious February birth was outrageously out of sync with the warm weather birth season of local dolphins, is still hopelessly entangled in fishing line (Dolphin Watchs And who among us is innocent?). We saw him and his mom Valiant on Oct 21, the first time since July 31. Were planning, and hopeful for, a seaside rescue with the national stranding network. But an obvious link in the string of changes was Laska, or rather the suddenness with which she got her mojo workin. Laska is one of the dozen calves born in 2008 who are now 3 years old. Normally, several of them would have weaned from their mothers (left her to live independently) this summer. Only one did, wiggly little Peewee (Dolphin Watchs Princess and the pea). The rest of the 2008 calves remain with their moms. And their mojos are workin now! And thats weird. Older dolphin calves that remain with their moms around here tend to be fairly socially staid. Mostly, they hunt when their mother hunts, which is most of the time. When the occasion permits, theyll surely romp with age mates. But their mojos usually arent obvious until a couple years later: They wean, spend a year or two alone beefing up in some inconspicuous bay, and then get their mojos workin, as socializing becomes their lifestyle. So a bunch of un-weaned calves with their mojos workin this summer was hard to ignore! It started in May. An edgy gathering of local and Gulf dolphins had assembled in Johns Pass. The tangled flow of spirited bulls and fresh females was strikingly punctuated by the wild romping of untested mojos: Babyface (akin to the lascivious teen babysitter from down the block), Doodle (local boy heretofore glued to his moms side) and age mates from the Gulf (like your cousins from across the country in for Easter break). I remember remarking to Capt. Heidemann that it was the first time wed seen moderate little Doodle more than three feet away from his mom. Summer observations verified that the local mojo flip had been switched [on]. It revved from there. One July evening, Laska and Doodle thundered around with age mate Dose and kid brother Fugazi like they were stuck together by super glue. They spent more time pitching at the water surface than ever before; I greedily snapped pictures of their bright eyes and frozen faces a gleam in the peachy Florida sunset. Within the fortnight, Laska was workin her mojo with young bull HI W Ski as plucky little Meadow leapt to dislodge a remora and mom Forest threaded tirelessly to steer them both clear of her calf until we were totally confused about who was doing what to whom. All I could say was they had their mojos workin! Doodle kept his mojo workin too. He went from dutiful son at his mothers side to a strapping young male muscling around with the big bulls whod escorted his mom all summer (Nose and Brick; Grin and Twin Dip). Just last week, Doodle, his mojo, and lifelong buddy BB oscillated between munching, merriment and [not always successfully] dodging terns. This summer of mojo suggests that dolphins are capable of changing with the changing times. How curious those parallels between land and sea.Call the dolphin mojo whatever you like. Here, little lady Laska works her mojo with big bulls Midface and Lax close behind. Photo by ANN WEAVER Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver

Fordham and Alvarez grew up in Indian Rocks Beach, and attended Seminole High School and the University of South Florida. Their dad was a local builder renowned for his masonry work on such landmarks as the Anona Methodist Church and The Church of the Isles. They both still live in the area. Kathryn is married to Rick Alvarez, an independent investor and consultant and she is the mother of Alexis and Reid, both college students. Nancy is married to retired insurance professional, Alan Fordham, and she is the mother of David, a local engineer. Fordham received a degree in elementary education from USF and specialized in early childhood development at Madeira Beach Elementary. In the late 1970s she was approached by her friend, Nina Light, to buy Loraines Academy from founder Loraine Pils Luyten. I was a teacher and this was just another way to teach, said Fordham. Both sisters became licensed cosmetologists and about 12 years later, Alvarez bought into the business when Light decided to pursue other interests. Today Loraines boasts about 200 students enrolled at any one time. The school is nationally recognized and enjoys consistent high rankings by regulatory agencies. It has been named one of the top woman owned businesses in the Tampa Bay Area by the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Loraines offers a wide variety of skin care services including facials and microdermabrasion, as well as massage, body wraps, hair and nail care and other services. The public is invited to visit and enjoy these very affordable services performed by students and overseen by professional instructors. Imagine $25 massages, $7 brow waxings, $15 facials, $50 microdermabrasions, and $5 haircuts, said Fordham. The schools motto is, Theres Only One Loraines. Alvarez, who holds a bachelors degree in business and finance, credits her expertise to years at Florida Power and Light, Sun Bank Corp., and construction management positions around the area before she joined Loraines. She also owned a glass gallery and was a professional singer. She said working with her sister is no problem. We both have the same beliefs and attitudes about life and running a business in a hands-on, day-to-day management style. Because were locally owned, we can make rapid changes as necessary, while preserving the quality education each student receives, Alvarez said. This is a growing profession and we welcome prospective students whether they are right out of school or people looking to change careers. Loans are available. Our staff members are all professionals with years of experience in this business and they have a great camaraderie with the students. Each one is dedicated to counseling and supporting students as they learn. Loraines is also an outstanding community citizen. Over the years it has held events for numerous nonprofit organizations including CASA, area youth sports teams, the Veterans Administration, and Community Tampa Bay. If you want a good life you must be part of giving a good life to others. It comes back three fold, Alvarez said.

Please refrain from making unsubstantiated allegations. Only two municipalities in Pinellas County will hold elections on Tuesday, Nov. 8 St. Petersburg and Largo. Largo voters will choose between two candidates for Seat 1 Mary Black and Michael Smith. No proposed charter amendments or other issues are on the citys ballot this year. When countywide or statewide races are not on the ballot, many voters decide to ignore the elections, succumbing to apathy. Thats unfortunate, because, consequently, a small portion of the voters often determines the races. Such instances are counterproductive to effective democracy. For instance, in November of 2009, only 6,257 of Largos voters, 14 percent, cast ballots in the election. In 2007, only 5,683 voters or 12.5 percent cast ballots. In last years election 22,091 voters or 48 percent cast ballots. That election included the gubernatorial race and candidates seeking county and legislative offices. St. Petersburg voters will choose council members in four district races. They also will decide upon eight charter amendments. Across the country, governments have taken steps to make voting easier, through early voting and mail balloting. Unfortunately, Florida legislators and the governor adopted a law that will limit early voting. Time shall tell whether such a backward step will be upheld by the courts. Meanwhile, Largo voters last year voted to extend city commissioners terms to four years, eventually eliminating elections in odd-numbered years. Beginning next year, the citys election will coincide with national or state elections, which will help bolster turnout. That said, residents should not overlook the importance of municipal elections. Local governments actions affect residents quality of life in many ways, from determining the level of police and fire-suppression services to regulating garage sales. No matter what actions they take, governments cant force constituents to take advantage of one of the most fundamental rights of a democracy voting. Have a say. Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rogers were two of my first stops on the long and bumpy road to self-acceptance. When I was 7 or 8 my brother Dave and I would go to see the Saturday shoot-em-ups at the Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock, Pa. We watched google-eyed as Hopalong, Roy, Buck Jones and other Hollywood cowboys chased the black-hatted bad guys and brought them to justice. After the movies wed race home, get out our cap guns and take turns pretending we were Hopalong. The fantasy always came to an end when I had to admit I was merely a scrawny, nearsighted kid who couldnt handle a Colt .44 or ride a horse if my life depended on it. If were lucky, self-acceptance sets in early. But it may not stay for long. The enemies of self-acceptance are always out there or in there waiting to push us. Ambition is always a major offender. Can a person achieve self-acceptance and still be ambitious? Doubtful. One of Clint Eastwoods characters said, A mans got to know his limitations. Oh, yeah? Tell that to Steve Jobs or Barack Obama. Envy and jealousy now theres a pretty package, if ever Ive seen one. Those two mind-sets can bury self-acceptance without half trying. If Charlie drives a better car or has a prettier girl friend than I do, how do I respond? Should I turn a blind eye and ignore the gnawing I feel each time Charlie and his blonde bimbo drive past my house? Should I listen to the small, still voice that tells me, Thats the way life is, fella. When youre hot, youre hot, when youre not, youre not. So get used to it. Theres no greater obstacle to self-acceptance than the desire for fame. It can drive a person to the heights of attainment, or to the depths of ignominy. To his dying day Al Jolson could not quench his thirst for fame, and to be known as the greatest entertainer alive. He reached that goal and was miserable, to the point that he couldnt stand to hear an audience applaud another performer. What a fate to climb to the top of the ladder and still be unhappy. Beware the lifelong loser who cannot or will not erase his or her craving for immortality. If Lee Harvey Oswald ever heard of the idea of self-acceptance, he didnt listen to it. He was determined to make his mark, and to show society its mistake in not rewarding him for his sterling character. He bided his time, and then one day heard the news: JFK would be coming to Dallas. Selfacceptance would have to wait a little longer. The opposite of self-acceptance is perpetual discontent. If Sam, the charmer, nearly goes crazy getting a C+ in basic algebra, hell be well advised to abandon his dream of teaching physics at MIT. It just aint gonna happen, Sam. Accept it. Instead, you should race toward the waiting arms of sales and marketing, where your gift of sparkling gab will lift you ever upward. The scope of discontent can be illustrated by a woman Ill call Melinda. I knew her many years ago, when we were young. Melinda was attractive, witty and sweet. She had a loving husband and a supportive family. Most women would have been more than satisfied with those blessings. Not Melinda. Nothing would satisfy her unless she was admitted to the Junior League of Akron, Ohio. Alas, she never made it. I suspect her very anxiousness defeated her. Her discontent and neediness were trumpets that preceded her every step. So what is the message here? Is self-acceptance the thing we should all strive for? Will it protect us from neuroses and obsessions that arise from desires that barring a miracle cannot or should not be realized? Or will placid, unquestioning self-acceptance condemn us to a lukewarm life of mediocrity? Is there no middle ground that can sustain us? Beats me, kids. Deep questions like that make my head ache, and should be passed along to Dr. Phil and other experts who know all the buzzwords such as unacceptable, proactive and paradigm. I have lurched through life by using only a few principles. One of them is Be careful when setting fixed goals. Remember: the unaimed arrow always strikes its mark. Ive had my share of dreams, and have chased some of them, with varied repercussions. Any benefits I may have realized from selfacceptance have been dwarfed by the serenity that has come from my accepting as best I could the attitudes and behavior of other people.Bob Driver was a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@ comcast.net.Self-acceptance: a tool or trap?Commissioners priorities skewedEditor: During the previous commission meeting I spoke out against borrowing money for any nonessential projects during these unsettled times no matter what the interest rates offered. The reason is if a person is of sound business qualities, or a person has been following the business climate and has been reading the leading business journals (such as Forbes Magazine, Fortune Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, etc.) as well as following the failed tampering of the Federal Government he or she knows that this is not a time to enter into any type of large loan with any financial institution. What was of special interest is that the majority of the Commissioners seem to hold the phrase staff recommends as having some omnipotent power; that is to say that whenever a City employee states staff recommends or this is recommended by staff that everything will be all right and this is the word of God. I say thats blatantly B.S.; just because a person or collective of persons is recommending something (to protect or justify their job or jobs) does not make it right or fiscally sound. For instance the comment (and I paraphrase) that the loan will be backed by the Penny for Pinellas revenues and that if those go away the City will not be legally obligated to pay back the loan. This is a very irresponsible comment and the individual who made the comment should be censured by the Commission (up and maybe even including dismissal from employment) because its widely known that if the lost funds are short the payments will be made out of the general fund, aka, property taxes. If this individual worked for a private enterprise he would have been dismissed. There are no lending institutions that I am aware of that will enter into a contract to loan money to anyone with the possibility of the only source of collateral going away. In fact concerning the Penny for Pinellas; on January 31, 2011, Pinellas County reported: the share of tax revenue for the county and each municipality was 13.4 percent less than projected. The Countys own report shows continuing problems with revenue projections, this seems to be contrary to the statement made by staff that there will be an increase in revenues in regards to the Penny for Pinellas allocations. I am inspired by the bold and enlighten stance taken by Commissioners Holmes and Black who voted to NOT approve Ordnance #2012-14; at least we have some leaders in this community that have the intelligence and foresight to see what is the correct thing to do. However, it still perplexes me that the City wants to borrow money to the tune of over $20 million and yet still subsidize the money pits such as the golf course and Cultural Center but actually propose to cut Police services budget by at least $1 million next year. It seems to me that the majority of the commissioners have their priorities skewed as well as needing a reality check. It is time for some real changes on the City Commission starting with ousting those who want to borrow money, as well as trimming the employees who wantonly recommend the borrowing as a good idea! Ray Raulerson LargoProvide jobs to returning servicemenEditor: Recently, Michelle Obama announced a pledge by US corporations to provide jobs to 25,000 veterans by the end of 2013. Id like to propose a solution to the major rise in unemployment that will surely occur the end of this year when the 40,000 to 45,000 troops return from Iraq. Replace all 45,000 Transportation Security Administration airport screeners with the returnees. After all they have seen the enemy up close and will be able to identify terrorists without removing diapers from 95 year olds. I have included the contact information for our two senators, Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio as well as Congressman C.W. Bill Young. Please contact them and ask that they sponsor a bill to provide jobs at TSA for our returning servicemen. Thank you. Lil Cromer BelleairDont look for loopholes in the lawsEditor: The gentleman who wrote blaming the unchecked government for his 16-year-old son getting caught by a camera for running a red light should be thankful the act didnt kill his son or someone else. By the dads own words, his son already knew the extreme danger in running a red light yet it didnt stop this conscientious driver intelligent enough to be in the honor society from doing just that. I dont see the difference between receiving a ticket due to a camera and one received by a policeman catching you on scene. Neither excuses the fact that this young man broke the law and deserved the ticket (which I can only hope the son is being held responsible to pay). Thats the lesson the dad should be teaching. Whats snowballing out of control are parents who not only fail to teach their children to follow the laws but encourage them to look for loopholes to blame others for their actions. Janice DeMeza SeminoleCommissioner praises TBN coverage of fluoride issuesEditor: I wanted to take a moment simply to thank the TBN editors for a fair, well-researched, earnest, and balanced reporting and editorial on the fluoride issue that has engulfed our area low these past few weeks, and the facts surrounding the decision made by me and my colleagues on this very important matter. I am encouraged to see that journalistic integrity still has a home here in Pinellas County. Please hold on to it; for it is a responsibility equal to if not even greater than that which is given to our elected leadership. Norm Roche Pinellas County commissioner at large ClearwaterUpgrade mass transit systemEditor: I read with great interest your editorial from the Largo Leader dated October 13, 2011 titled PSTA stays on course. I agree with your assessment with two notable exceptions. It is a tragedy of monumental proportions how under-funded PSTA remains. They have heroically operated on basically the same budget for at least the last five years that I am aware of. They are funded for operational cost through property tax and the last I heard each property paid about $51 each to operate this vital transit service while the ridership has exploded and would grow more if the service were viable. Case in point, I personally know a person who lives basically at Lake and Rosary roads and works at Feather Sound, a distance of 9 miles. For this person to take a bus to work it would require an hour or more and two buses. This is beyond stupid; it is hurting our economy and reducing our ability to attract new businesses to Pinellas County. There are many, many stories as the one above and while PSTA is increasing in ridership, its viability of service is being reduced by lack of planning by our local political leaders. You mentioned in the editorial that we need more planning and continued discussions to foster understanding and build support for a regional transportation system. Nothing could be further from the truth. Study after study has been done and all have come to the same conclusion. The ridership is there IF the transit system was built and practical. We dont need buses that run once an hour or even buses on routes that are critical such as Route 52 and Route 18, which run every 30 minutes and are constantly overloaded. Finally, a few years ago Pinellas County wanted to build a central emergency facility with the idea that in the event of a disaster all emergency personnel would be in one place. Regardless of the practicality of this idea it was to be funded by the Penny for Pinellas, which comes from our sales-tax dollars. Three years ago the fund was $30 million, which is 55 percent of PSTAs current budget. Since that time the fund is now at $80 million and the county commissioners to my knowledge are still planning to waste this money on an emergency center, which might only be actually used only every few decades. We need to take that money and invest it in mass transit in Pinellas County. True, the fund is only for capital projects but with a vote this could be altered allowing PSTA to use much of this money to start up operational cost. Funding for buses is available from federal and state tax monies. Its time Pinellas County took a 40-year leap into todayand upgrade the mass transit system here to one that can be utilized by all citizens and benefit job creation and the economy. Its up to the politicians and they need to hear from you, the citizens, to put this on the front burner. Are you interested in improving the life style, create jobs and make Pinellas a better investment environment for business? I hope so. The roads are all ready clogged and dangerous.

With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Joshs crew turns to petty crook Slide (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible...to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthurs guarded condo.

Reviving an ancient, traditional practice called Fambul Tok (family talk), the Sierra Leonean communities portrayed in Fambul Tok build sustainable peace at the grass-roots level, succeeding where international efforts have failed. The documentarys subjects reveal the depths of a culture that believes that true justice lies in redemption and healing and that forgiveness is the surest path to restoring a nations dignity. Fambul Tok has received many awards at film festivals this year including Winner Human Spirit Award at the Nashville Film Festival, Winner Best Documentary at the Fort Myers Film Festival and Winner Best of Fest at the Global Social Change Film Festival. Immediately following the screening, there will be a discussion with the films producer, Libby Hoffman. A former political science professor at Principia College, in 2003 she founded Catalyst for Peace. The Portland, Maine based private foundation seeks to mobilize and support locally rooted peace-building around the world, and to pioneer in communications to bring the stories of the work to the world. Hoffman holds a master of arts in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, and a bachelors degree in political science from Williams College. Fambul Tok is her first feature length film. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Capitol Theatre box office will open one hour prior to show time. Tickets also may be purchased at the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater, during regular business hours, Monday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Fambul Tok International.About Fambul TokFambul Tok tells the story of healing in postconflict Sierra Leone through the intimate stories of perpetrators and victims, including: Esther and Joseph family members who were caught in the horrors of the war. At age 12 Esther was captured by rebels, and raped by 15 men. Among them was her uncle, Joseph. He, too, had been caught by the rebels and ordered to rape Esther or be killed. Sahr and Nyumah best friends whose lives were forever changed by the conflict. Rebel forces turned the two boys on each other, forcing Nyumah to beat his best friend so severely that he crippled him and then forcing him to cut the throat of his best friends father. The villagers of Foendor and Tamba Joe, the native son who killed and beheaded 17 members of his own clan. Our guide through these stories, and across the landscape of one of the poorest nations in the world, is John Caulker, a Sierra Leonean who has a vision of peace for his country. He is the creator and director of Fambul Tok, an unprecedented grass-roots reconciliation program that brings perpetrators and victims face-to-face in truthtelling and forgiveness ceremonies an initiative which steps into the void left by failed international efforts to create peace and justice in the wake of the countrys eleven-year-long civil war. Caulker believes Fambul Tok is his countrys only hope. He has given his life to the program moving out of his long-time career as a human rights activist and committing himself to the work of a peacebuilder. In Fambul Tok, these stories of forgiveness and reconciliation are woven to paint a vivid portrait of post-conflict healing in Sierra Leone, seen through the lens of family, friends and community. The film explores a culture of forgiveness that is nearly incomprehensible to a Western mindset a culture that values the restoration of relationships and the wholeness of community rather than measures of punishment and retribution. As the stories of the central characters develop, the audience witnesses bonfires where victims and perpetrators come together, surrounded by their communities, to testify about crimes to acknowledge responsibility and to ask for forgiveness. The film captures ceremonies that have not been performed since before the war cleansing rituals for victims and perpetrators, as well as the pouring of libations to ancestors, to ask their blessings on the communitys attempts to reconcile. Fambul Tok examines the war itself through interviews with survivors, local journalists and the use of archival footage. Understanding the horrors of this war and the toll it took on Sierra Leones culture of unity illumines the magnitude of Sierra Leoneans willingness to forgive and the desire for reconciliation. Fambul Tok provides insight into the answers that can be found in post-conflict African countries for creating sustainable peace. With its intimate exploration of a powerful grass-roots program created and led by Sierra Leoneans themselves, the film raises questions about the international communitys efforts in Africa to create peace through Western-based traditions of crime and punishment and searches for answers in African traditions which are based on cultural norms of confession, forgiveness and restorative justice. The film further challenges the neo-colonial concept that Africa needs to be saved by the West, and explores community-based traditions as a viable form of building sustainable peace, that have proven in Sierra Leone to be more successful than Western efforts to heal divided communities. And we hope it encourages individuals and communities in other parts of Africa and the West to engage in the kind of grass-roots transformation that leads to peace.October 28, 2011CapricornDecember 22 January 19Chills and thrills make for a very lively week, Capricorn.

Wall Street traders face a reckoning in suspenseful Margin Call Photo by WALTER THOMSON/ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONSStanley Tucci stars as Eric Dale in Margin Call, written and directed by J.C. Chandor.Even in the current climate of wanton Wall Street bashing, basing a thriller around a recent financial crisis doesnt seem like a very good bet. Films of this nature are rarely blockbuster material and often dont even succeed at delivering an entertaining story. Not this time. Margin Call may be the best movie in its narrow genre to date. It delivers a credible, compelling assessment of a single moment in time on Wall Street, capturing the revelation of an impending disaster and watching how individuals react to it. Margin Call examines the highstakes world of the financial industry with brutal honest and an unexpected hint of humanity. The film follows key players at an investment firm over the course of 24 hours in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. As the movie opens, a significant number of employees including some long-term, upper echelon staff members are shown the door. The ax falls ruthlessly and without appeal, though at least one manager Eric Dale is offered severance. Dale gives Peter Sullivan a USB drive with a project he has been working on as he is escorted out of the building and suggests he should take a look at it. His final words: Be careful. Peter stays late and completes the work, making a startling discovery in the process: When trading exceeds the historical volatility levels used by the firm to calculate risk, the firms assets will tank. And it appears that the end of the party is imminent. For a thriller revolving around rather abstract financial concepts, writer director J.C. Chandor manages to deliver a riveting roller-coaster ride detailing what may well have happened behind closed doors as the firm plots its path to survival in a nail-biting overnight session. As Eric, Stanley Tucci is browbeaten and terminally exploited. He withers as he faces termination and he yields dutifully when advantageously induced. Zachary Quinto plays Peter, the relative greenhorn who crunches the numbers to show just how close to the edge the firm has found itself. Quinto adeptly restricts Peter to strict parameters. Hes little more than a drone at this point in his career, and Quinto always remains reserved and relatively subservient in his dealings with the firms hierarchy. He affords his character a degree of academic arrogance but remains muted and visually acquiescent in most scenes. Paul Bettany plays Will Emerson, Peters boss. Will is one of many employees who appears to have sold their soul to the company. Bettany shows his loyalty is from Wills perspective both natural and necessary. Wills boss, Sam Rogers, is portrayed by Kevin Spacey. Sam appears to be the firms longstanding conscience, though like so many others in the film his own situation dictates his own response to the crisis. Spacey gives an excellent performance that underscores the films belief the financial markets and the top-dog traders cant all be viewed as good or evil, right or wrong. John Tuld is the firms CEO. As Tuld, Jeremy Irons is insensitive and uncaring except when it comes to the survival of the firm. Irons paints Tuld as manipulative, cunning and cold. The actor never forgets Tuld is human, though, injecting telling traits to reveal his motive based more on hubris than greed. Additional exceptional performances come from Demi Moore, Simon Baker and Penn Badgley. Greed does play an unquestionable role in Margin Call, but not necessarily in the function one might imagine. Instead of exposing Wall Street movers and shakers as the primary drivers of the current financial meltdown, Chandor insinuates that theres plenty of blame to go around. Bettanys character is the only one to attempt to verbalize the concept that greed is endemic through many levels of American society and that the unsustainable materialism of the middle class may have helped create the most abusive monsters on Wall Street. Hows that for a scary Halloween story? Margin Call is almost Shakespearean in scope, offering an enlightening glimpse of the people at the center of a financial meltdown. Chandor succeeds in showing not only their greed and insensitivity but also their regrets, insecurity and intransigence. Margin Call is currently playing in select Tampa Bay area theaters. It also is being shown On Demand on cable channels. Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe will be available for purchase. Visit www.dunedinwinesthe blues.info.
