Parade chairman and director Jacob Valintine said this See PARADE, page 4AThe EMS debate Photo by TERRE PORTERLt. Scott Sanford, firefighter and paramedic with Palm Harbor Rescue, left, and Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue, explain their plan to use fire-based transport in place of a private ambulance company during a Nov. 30 public hearing at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center.Commissioners discuss new ideas for EMS service By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pilot programs, pension concessions from St. Petersburg, cost-savings on a contract renewal with Paramedics Plus, EMS millage rates by district, fire fees and more. Pinellas County commissioners talked about several new ideas to cut costs for Emergency Medical Services during a work session Nov. 28. Paramedics, firefighters and other interested parties filled the commission chamber to talk about proposed changes to EMS. Should the county continue to contract with a private company, Paramedics Plus, to run Sunstar, or should local fire departments take over ambulance service. Sunstar employees, many long-time county residents, expressed concern about losing their job. They worry that fire departments wont hire them because their expertise is with health care not fighting fires. Paramedics employed at local fire stations also are worried about their jobs due to a second plan that calls for funding fewer positions at municipal fire departments and fire districts. No one wants to change the current system of providing EMS services that garners praise as one of the best in the nation. It all comes down to affordability in the current economy. However, commissioners are concerned about the growing dissension as people and organizations take sides. There are no bad guys in this scenario, said Commissioner Ken Welch, who requested the 8 See COUNTY, page 2AState legislators put brakes on key EMS changes By SUZETTE PORTERPINELLAS PARK State legislators wont be considering changes to the Special Act that created Pinellas Countys EMS Authority when the session starts in January. The Pinellas County Legislative Delegation voted unanimously Nov. 30 to approve a proposal set forth by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. The proposal requires the county to pay for a study, using EMS funds, by an independent nationally recognized accounting firm on the costs and potential revenue from two proposed plans to change the EMS system. The study also will consider the system currently in use. The study must be complete by July 1, 2012. Local legislators will assist in the selection of an impartial group of people representing municipalities, fire service, the county and the current ambulance service provider. The sixto eight-member committee must be selected by Jan. 1. In addition, the county cannot implement changes to the system proposed by a consultant and entities opposing those changes cannot take legal action. The Nov. 30 meeting was called after the countys legislators were asked to sponsor two opposing local bills that would change the special act that created the countys EMS Authority. These are two very different bills, Latvala said. We didnt understand it (the situation) enough to make a decision. He said the intent was to listen to as many perspectives as possible during a time-certain hearing. We all know why were here today, he said. There is no responsibility higher than protecting citizens keeping them safe. The auditorium at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center was carefully staged with proponents of the bills sitting at tables to the right and left of a long one in the front where the legislators were seated. Pinellas Park Mayor Bill Mischler welcomed the crowd and said the arrangement reminded him of a WWE SmackDown with opponents on both sides. The county was asked to present its perspective first. Commission Chair Susan Latvala said the special act needed to be amended to give the EMS Authority, which is the county commissioners, the ability to control costs A passion for musicLocal firefighter spends time off singing opera, tuning pianos By BOB McCLURELARGO Its not every day that you run into a firefighter who moonlights as an opera singer and a piano tuner. But as 55-year-old Nolan Marshall, a 16-year veteran of the Largo Fire Department, points out, he moonlights as a firefighter to support his passion for music. To hear Marshall sing, its evident. The bass baritone vocalist puts every ounce of energy in his soul into his craft something he has only recently discovered. At 6-foot, 6 inches and 280 pounds, he looks like he could be a former NFL defensive end, but thats far from his genetic makeup. Actually, opera was far from his mind until 2003 when he was called upon by well-known opera tenor Giorgio Aristo to move a grand piano for opera singer Horst Hoffmann, who was relocating to Belleair from Australia. He (Aristo) heard my voice and asked me about singing, said Marshall, a former volunteer fireman and resident of Seminole. He had me sing some scales and all of the sudden hes teaching me two times a week. Later Hoffmann joined the process. Who on this planet can say that? asked Marshall. Slowly the two opera stars molded the Fond du Lac, Wis., native into an effective opera performer. Finally, Marshall said, he found what means the most to him. Singing is a natural thing, he said. Its a God-given thing, of sorts. To me, its now my passion in life. He sings regularly at First Lutheran Church in Clearwater and performed Dec. 4 at Grace Lutheran Church in St. Petersburg with the Pinellas Lutheran Choirs production of Handels Messiah. On Dec. 9 at 7 p.m., he will sing as part of a Christmas program at Belleair Town Hall.Photo by BOB McCLURENolan Marshall demonstrates his opera singing skills in his home studio.Among his favorite operas is The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner, which tells the story of a mysterious ghost character that comes back every seven years to find a woman who will be faithful to him through eternity. His favorite opera singers include the late American tenor Mario Lanza and Russian opera singer Feodor Chaliapin, the mac-daddy of Russian music, according to Marshall because of his deep bass tones and magnetic personality. His idols figure heavily in his style. When I first started singing opera, I thought it was like skydiving, Marshall said. Its like thats a pretty cool experience. You open up and soar with your music. While his goal is to sing opera one day with a full orchestra behind him, he is finding satisfaction in performing a variety of music styles. Im still looking for the real me to come out in me and Im finding its church music and Christmas music, Marshall said. Theres a message there that people need to hear from Handel and I want to make the connection with the audience. His love affair with music began at age 5 when he started piano lessons and thats where it stopped for a while. After a brief stint as a college basketball player at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minn., Marshall relocated to Pinellas County at age 24, did some construction work, got married, found another job selling pianos and ultimately opened a piano repair business called The Piano Doctor, which did restorations, piano moves and tuning. As time went on, I realized I knew more about it than some of the people that were my tuners, he said. However, opera is clearly his favorite style of music. The story lines are designed to grab emotions and make people cry, Marshall said. Thats what opera does and thats why I love it.

Welch advocated an independent analysis of fire-based transport during a commission work session on Nov. 28.a.m. Monday meeting. Furthermore, there should be no us against them mentality, commissioners conceded. However, difficult decisions are necessary, they say, and not everyone will be happy in the end. Weve received a lot of input, Welch said of the two plans currently on the table. The IPS plan, prepared by Integral Performance Solutions, a consultant hired by the county administrator, continues to use Sunstar as the sole provider of ambulance (transport) service and it suggests a new funding formula that would reduce the amount some fire departments would be paid for first responder services. A second plan, prepared by two local firefighters, has fire departments taking over transport services, emergency and non-emergency, eliminating the contract with Paramedics Plus, the company currently operating as Sunstar under the countys license. Welch said the commission had taken some heat for not taking a stand in support of either plan; however, he said it was better that commissioners had taken their time to get feedback from the public and others. Now, the question is where the board wants to go, he said. Welch said he had recently studied the courts judgment in the countys 1989 lawsuit against St. Petersburg, in which the city prevailed. It was pretty striking, he said. If you didnt read the title, it could have been written for 2011. He said it seemed, due to the lawsuit, the county cant require fire departments to use advanced life support engines instead of rescue units and it cant use cost averaging to pay for services two concepts the IPS plan relies on to make EMS more affordable. Is IPS implementable, he asked County Attorney Jim Bennett, who replied that it could be in a cooperative manner, but admitted there could be problems with implementing unilaterally. Weve listened to everyone, thats to our credit, Welch said. He talked about the problem of managing costs using millage only. He said if the commission managed EMS costs using only increases in millage, the rate most likely would have to double to be sufficient. We should not do that (raise the millage to the cap) until we make sure the system is as efficient as it can be, he said. Welch talked about new options on the table since the commission met with St. Petersburg city officials on Oct. 31. The city of St. Petersburg has offered to take the issue of unfunded pension costs off the table a savings of $750,000 a year and several million dollars over the next several years. St. Petersburg also suggested trying a fire-based transport pilot, allowing eight of the citys rescue units to provide transport services during non-peak hours. The revenue would go to the county, just as the revenue generated by Paramedics Plus goes to the county. Id like to see how much it (the pilot) would save, he said. Welch said he would not support any action that was simply managing by millage or just transferring the millage line on the TRIM notice (from county to a municipality). Lastly, Welch said he would like to see an independent review of losses versus revenues from a fire-based transport system versus continuing the contract with Paramedics Plus. Bob Swain with the county attorneys office explained his take on the situation from the perspective of the 1989 court judgment in favor of St. Petersburg. He said the county is required to pay for what fire departments and districts use to provide first responder services. He said without a change to the states special act that created the countywide EMS Authority, the authority (commission) couldnt force change, in particular the recommendation by IPS to use ALS engines instead of rescue units. It would be hard to put ALS in a community that doesnt want it, he said. Welch talked about a worst-case scenario where a city, for example St. Petersburg, would take the county to court and win. That would force the authority to raise the millage, he said. And the city could go after general fund dollars. Swain said since the special act caps the millage rate, that argument may or may not be true. He said the EMS was a separate taxing authority (not acting as the county commission) so there were a lot of unknowns. He said although the amount the authority can raise the millage rate is capped, nothing precluded the commission from allocating more money from other sources to go toward EMS. Discussion turned to the challenges involved with coordination of 18 different entities providing transport services, including licensing requirements, the need to keep the revenue stream currently provided by Sunstar intact and compliance with Medicare regulations. There are definite pros and cons, Welch said. Commission Chair Susan Latvala said splitting up the system was a step backwards. The system was consolidated by the Legislature for a reason, she said. She objected to fire-based transport saying the county would have to assume responsibility and risk without having control over the system as it has now. Im disappointed at this point, she said. She said all the conversations had done nothing but confirm the countys responsibility to provide the service but no progress had been made on how to pay for the service. Were left with the only choice to raise millage instead of working with our partners, its us against them, Latvala said. The (IPS) study shows we can save money with cooperation. But if it doesnt work, well have to raise the millage. Its an awkward place to be. Im disappointed the partners arent working with us. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said it was important to keep an open mind. She said it was not just a choice between option A and option B. She said it was critical that all the partners be at the table to look at ways to make the system more efficient. She said the key to success was to find a plan that would give everyone something to gain. Latvala said the county was bearing the expenses. We spent money on a study to find efficiencies that is being picked to death by the opposition, she said. Now theres talk about spending more money on another study, Latvala said. At some point we have to stop and make a decision and provide the service. Commissioner Karen Seel brought up the matter of renewing the Sunstar contract with Paramedics Plus, which expires in October of 2012. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the county was required to tell Paramedics Plus its intentions to renew or not by January. Paramedics Plus has agreed to waive annual increases based on the Consumer Price Index in exchange for a three-year contract renewal, which would save about $2.5 million a year, or $10 million over four years. Seel asked about the number of administrative positions in Paramedic Pluss operation and the continual need to replace the ambulance fleet. Craig Hare, the countys EMS division manager, said Paramedics Plus administrative staff was responsible for a variety of programs, including training, medication management, fleet replacement and patient business services, which make sure ambulance runs are billable, among others. He said Paramedics Plus also operated a central warehouse for supplies and delivered them to service providers. Commissioner John Morroni asked Hare about the feasibility of a pilot program. Hare said it would be difficult due to accountability and the design of the current system. He said it was a question of how to run it and implement it. We all know paramedics can take patients to the hospital, he said. Its more the mechanics of the process. He said considerations would include workload, allocation of resources (equipment) and ensuring response time requirements were met. And, the biggest sticking point, Paramedics Plus contract gives the company rights to be the sole provider of transport service, ensuring a secured revenue stream, which is capped and shared with the county. Welch said the city of St. Petersburg believes it could save $2.6 million by using eight units to provide transport service during off-peak hours, 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Hare said there was a potential problem with safety. He said current standards call for 30 percent workload within a 24-hour period per unit. In other words, in a 24-hour shift, personnel are expected to be engaged in activity 30 percent of that time. Anything over that amount could result in enough downtime to ensure good service. He said there was a risk of crew fatigue. Bostock said it was important to manage time, but suggested there could be other ways to staff more effectively to save money and would be something the countys partners could do. Im all for a pilot program, said Commissioner Neil Brickfield. But not just for St. Petersburg. He suggested an ALS pilot program run by Sunstar in an unincorporated area of the county, such as Seminole. Mark Postma, COO for Paramedics Plus Sunstar operation since 2004 and company vice president, said his organization had sat back and idly watched the discussions about different plans to overhaul the countys EMS system. We stand on our merits provided to the county, he said. Were (Paramedics Plus) the largest provider of services in Florida. The company also provides emergency services to residents of Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla., Fort Wayne, Ind., and recently began providing services to Alameda, Calif. This is what we do, he said. Were healthcare providers. Ambulance service is health care. He talked about unbudgeted costs in the fire-based transport plan proposed by Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue and Lt. Scott Sanford, firefighter and paramedic with Palm Harbor Rescue. The firefighters plan has been gaining support from organizations and municipalities throughout the county, something the IPS plan has yet to accomplish. Postma said the firefighters did not budget for fuel costs or fleet maintenance and the plan doesnt account for specialty transport services, such as critical care and mental health. The plan also leaves out a requirement for response time and it has no deployment plan. He said by contract, Paramedics Plus was monitored throughout the day to ensure it met the response time set by the county and could face fines up to $4 million if it did not perform.

We do that (deployment) very well, he said. He estimated it would take twice as many units to go to a fire-based transport system due to logistics involved to keep equipment assets available to respond to fires as well as medical emergencies. He predicted that within a month of fire departments taking over, hospital administrators would be complaining because of the wait time for patient transport. Over the years, Paramedics Plus has transitioned from providing services from one central location by opening hubs in additional locations. Postma said the change had resulted in savings of $80,000 in fuel costs. Most commissioners were not in favor of renewing a contract with Paramedics Plus that contains a penalty for violation of the exclusive rights to provide service clause. The proposed contract renewal includes a $5 million penalty. Commissioners say approving a contract with such a clause ties their hands and prevents them from trying pilot programs. LaSala agreed to work with Paramedics Plus to see if that could be changed. Most of the commission favored offering Paramedics Plus a one-year extension, or perhaps three one-year extensions. Seel favored going with two years. Latvala advocated going with three years because otherwise the company would not be able to offer a reduction in price. She said it had to be able to recoup its capital costs of replacing the fleet. Scott Sanford, co-author of the firefighters plan, admitted the work done for free at the kitchen table might need additional work, but they are not flaws that cant be fixed. We put something together on your (commissioners) request, he said. You said you wanted to hear ideas. So we gave you ideas. He said a lot of emotionally charged opinions were floating around. He also pointed out that 20 percent of Sunstars (Paramedics Plus) employees were fire department employees. He said if the county went with fire-based transport, many Sunstar employees would probably be hired by fire departments. He said Paramedics Plus claim that fire-based transport would preclude a patients ability to go to the hospital of their choice was unfounded. The policy is the patient goes where they want to go as long as it is the proper facility, he said. Latvala asked who would manage deployment for 18 districts. We already deploy people, Sanford said. Latvala argued that deployment wasnt part of the firefighters plan. She said the work the two firefighters had done was wonderful, but questioned why they didnt hire someone if they wanted an independent review to confirm their estimated savings. Ive already spent more money than I intended, Sanford said. He said the county had already commissioned a study for $117,000 to find out if the fire department at Palm Harbor could do rescue. The public and several commissioners advocated getting an independent group involved to review the firefighters plan and the contention that it did not adequately cover costs. Welch advocates an independent study and trying at least the pilot program suggested by St. Petersburg. There are no bad buys, he said. Theres nothing wrong with asking for an independent analysis. The numbers on fire-based transport are all over the place. Welch said he could not support the IPS recommendations. Bostock said it was time to take a look at firebased transport and not necessarily the MillicanSanford plan. She commented on the many similarities between the firefighters plan and the countys consultant. I want a new plan, she said. She suggested it was time to be bold. We were being bold when we commissioned the (IPS) study, Latvala said. Some suggested part of the problem was that the IPS plan was the result of the countys study and did not involve all the stakeholders. LaSala said a group of city managers and others approved hiring IPS and helped write the scope of the project. Latvala said she didnt think it was possible to find agreement between everyone regardless of who did the study or made recommendations. She said the need to find a way to cut costs and pay for the system was the biggest consideration. She said the commission needed to find a plan that was most economical to the county not necessarily to all. It must be most cost effective to the taxpayers, not just for us, Bostock said. Seel asked Swain if it would be possible to charge a fire fee. He said a fire fee could not be used to fund EMS. State law requires ad valorem revenue be used to pay for EMS. However, he said fire fees were not uncommon. Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District charges a fire fee now. More jurisdictions are doing that, he said. Bennett said a fire fee could be done by ordinance and used to pay for fire services not EMS. Swain said a fire fee was something each jurisdiction could do on its own, or if all agreed it could be done countywide. Seel advocates forming a task force to look at the entire system fire services and EMS. She is currently on a listening tour of the different municipalities to find out the issues that a task force should address. Realistically, there is no way we can make holistic changes to the system in less than three years, she said. I dont understand the purpose of the task force, Latvala said. I dont believe youll find consensus with 24 municipalities. It is our responsibility to look at the big picture. Were just kicking the can down the road. LaSala said staff needed direction before the Dec. 6 meeting about continuing negotiations with Paramedics Plus, as well as thoughts on implementing phase 3 of priority dispatch and a new plan that would allow different EMS millage rates to be charged per district. LaSala cautioned commissioners that taking time for more studies and pilot programs and other measures could mean a delay of three years or more before changes could be made to reduce the cost of the system, meaning commissioners might be left with no choice but to increase the millage rate again in the next couple of years. He said if nothing is done, by 2013, EMS reserves would be down to 16.3 percent and the system would have a deficit of $4.6 million, based on current projections that property values will continue to fall. He said in 2012, staff estimates reserves will fall to 22.4 percent. Commission policy calls for reserves to remain at 33 percent. LaSala said staff planned to recommend lowering the reserve requirement to 25 percent. Even if the commission lowers the reserve amount, LaSala said another 20 percent increase in the EMS millage rate would be required for 2013, if no changes were made to the system. Welch said he wouldnt support the plan to allow different EMS millage rates instead of one countywide rate. It would give us options even if we dont use it, Brickfield said. Latvala said a number of questions come to mind when talking about changes to the EMS system and one of the biggest is the willingness of the municipalities. Some cities want to do transport. Others dont, she said. Are we going to split the system up? Were kicking this can down the road. LaSala said staff was trying to give commissioners as many options as they want. The issue to protect the level of service is paramount, he said. I dont want the board to feel like its boxed in. I dont want you to be boxed in. Well explore with great care and deliberation. The (EMS) system works very, very well. Its the cost. COUNTY, from page 2A

4A SEB Beacon, December 8, 2011years joint Seminole Chamber of Commerce/city of Seminole event is one of the largest since its beginning 15 years ago. This is a bigger parade than last year with about 10 more participants (than a year ago), Valintine said. Im really excited about it. Its a lot more organized than last year and were expecting a bigger turnout. Last year, the parade attracted an estimated 5,000 spectators but with a change in date to two weeks later and more promotion, the number is expected to be higher. In past years, the parade was held Thanksgiving weekend to kick off the Christmas buying season. We decided since its a holiday parade, December would be better, said Valintine, a member of the Seminole Chamber board of directors. Christmas time is better served with it, as opposed to Thanksgiving. The parade began as a Saturday event, rolling around the Seminole Mall parking lot. Then it was moved to Sunday night as a regular street parade. Now were quite proud of it, said Valintine. Businesses can come in and show their wares. Its a true community parade. Im really excited about it, he added. This is going to be a fun one. In addition to the Seminole High band, Valintine said participants include local and state government officials, Seminole Fire Rescue, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, various floats, dance groups and the colorful Honda Gold Wing Road Riders Association club, among others. The chambers float will conclude the parade with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus on board. This year, the parade will be staged in the Seminole Mall parking lot in front of the former Publix store and will start on 113th Street in front of Kmart. The route goes north to the Seminole Recreation Center. In past years, it was staged on Johnson Boulevard and began on Liberty Lane, next to Freedom Square. This year, Liberty Lane will not be closed but Johnson Boulevard, from Park Boulevard to Liberty Lane, will be closed from 5 p.m. on. Valintine said 113th Street would be closed between 6 and 6:15 p.m., from Park Boulevard north to the Seminole Community Library. The parade again will employ a no-throwing policy but parade walkers will be distributing candy and prizes. This years two main sponsors are Bright House Networks and Realty Executives Adamo and Associates. For more information, visit www.brightbeforeyoureyes.com. PARADE, from page 1Aceeded with marginal cost funding. Mark Weinkrantz, chair of the East Lake Fire Commission, said East Lake could take care of its own transport if it had the funding. He talked about concerns that small districts could be shorted in the distribution of funding if the method was changed. He wants to avoid any situation that would pit East Lake against other providers to justify their need for funding. Norman Atherton, chair of the Palm Harbor Fire and Rescue Board, also advocated fire-based transport. He said it was wrong to allow a private company to make profits off somebodys suffering. Atherton brought up the countys initiative to implement priority dispatch and said Palm Harbor had not been notified when it was implemented. He said there was a problem with communication. He said he supports the principle but questions the practice. He said priority dispatch could work if it is done right. Others talked about potential problems with priority dispatch, although most agreed there needed to be a better way to do dispatch so multiple units werent called to deal with minor injuries.Millage ratesLargo Fire Chief Mike Wallace doesnt think a change in the special act is necessary. He thinks everything the county needs to manage and fund the system exists today. He showed a chart of historical EMS millage rates for the years 1981-2009, which shows a steady decline in the amount levied. Some residents were unhappy when Pinellas County commissioners raised the EMS millage rate 46 percent for the current fiscal year to 0.85 mils, the same rate levied in 1992. However, some say that the current millage rate is not too much to pay for good service. During much of the 1990s, millage rates hovered around 0.92 before spiking to 1.06 in 1989. The next year it fell to 0.7 mils. In subsequent years, the highest rate was 0.87 in 1993 and 0.75 in 2001. From 2002 to 2005, the millage rate remained the same, 0.66 mils. It was further lowered to 0.63 in 2006 and to 0.58 in 2008 where it remained until the current fiscal year. When voters approved the referendum, which established the current EMS system, they approved a millage cap of 1.5 mils far above what the EMS Authority (county commissioners) has ever levied. Foster faults the county for not raising the millage rate when property values bottomed out and ad valorem tax collections decreased dramatically. Instead, they chose to use up the reserves, he said. Wallace supports raising the millage rate to pay for the system, which he says has already been approved by the voters. He said it would not require amendments to the special act or changes in the funding formula. Large agrees. He said cost containment wasnt the real issue; instead, it is declining revenue due to lower property tax values. Its the millage, he said. Were containing costs fairly well. Large doesnt support any of the local bills. He says the special act should be repealed.More than amendmentsRep. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg) asked several speakers if it was time to do more than just amend the special act. He asked if it was time to look at it as a whole and perhaps rewrite it in its entirety. Opinions were mixed. South Pasadena Mayor Kathleen Peters, speaking as a private citizen, said she was not in favor of either local bill. She suggested that the special act be rewritten to change the structure of the EMS Authority. By law, the Pinellas County Commission is the authority. Peters thinks the authority should be structured the same as the Metropolitan Planning Organization or the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, both of which include representatives from local municipalities not just one board. They dont fight at the MPO or PSTA because all the stakeholders are at the table, she said. Peters and others defended the countys right to home rule and the ability to find solutions without having to involve the state.Local bills wont be considered this yearAfter listening to the speakers, Sen. Latvala was met by silence when he asked the delegation if anyone had an interest in moving either local bill forward. Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater, said the countys Cadillac system of EMS services had worked beautifully for years, but with less money coming in to pay for it, we now have to shop at the Chevy dealership. He said any major changes to the special act should be approved by the voters. The citizens ought to have a say, he said. Rep. Peter Nehr, R-Palm Harbor, said his sponsorship of the countys bill did not imply an endorsement. He said he agreed to sponsor it to open the matter to debate. He pointed out the vast differences between the two plans. He supported an independent study of both proposals. If we were to vote today, it looks like the support would be for the firefighters, he said. Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg, said it was all about public safety. He said the difference between a response time of 4.5 and 7.5 minutes was life and death. He also supports fire-based transport if it can maintain service levels. Ultimately, he thinks the county and its municipalities should find a way to work it out without asking the state to get in the middle. Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, said there was a mandate from the people that allowed the EMS Authority to charge up to 1.5 mils when the current rate is only 0.85, which means the system probably could be funded by millage. He said a bigger bone of contention was the taxes for fire services in some of the smaller districts. Rep. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, said he felt a bit like he was attending a shotgun wedding. He said it was a fundamental issue of trust. He expressed concern about the cost of pensions for additional government employees fire department employees doing transport versus a private company. The county claims it costs $40,000 more to pay paramedics at a fire department versus those employed by Paramedics Plus due to pension costs. Finally, Sen. Latvala asked to outline a proposal. The biggest point of contention is what MillicanSanford says it will cost and what the county says it will cost, he said. Theres a huge difference. Somebody is way off. He said the best way to determine who was right in an impartial way was by hiring a nationally recognized accounting firm to study all the numbers. Then we can take further action, he said. LaSala said it would probably take six to eight months for a study to be completed too late for the upcoming legislative session. Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Treasure Island, urged the delegation to support Latvalas proposal. Waiting another one session is worth it if we make the right decision from facts we all can agree to, he said. Hooper said he liked the motion, but was concerned about the timetable. The county must tell Paramedics Plus its intention on renewal of its contract by January. Commissioners are expected to vote on the matter Dec. 6. Commissioner Latvala said even if the decision were made to go with a fire-based transport system, it would be years before it could be implemented. She said contracts would be needed with 18 providers not just one as it is today. Sanford disagreed saying it should not take that long. He said the county already had contracts with the 18 providers that just needed to be amended. Foster said he supported a study of the economics of fire-based transport to see if it is the most cost-effective way to maintain the level of service. The solution is probably not yet presented, Brandes said. He said he could support the motion as long as it is understood it doesnt preclude presenting another alternative. LaSala said the Sanford-Millican proposal was an independent study that didnt represent the countys 24 municipalities. They dont represent anyone but themselves, he said. Its not fair to ask them to be responsible for others. Sanford agreed he could not speak for all the cities. But residents and cities have spoken and the majority supports the concept of fire-based transport. They do not support the IPS (county consultants plan). by changing the method used to reimburse providers for advanced life support (first responder) services. She also said the authority needed to be able to set the level of service. She said it wasnt fair or equitable to give the commission the authority to raise taxes but not control costs. We want help to stabilize costs, she said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the intent was to provide a uniform level of service for the entire county. He said the current level of service of 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time was considered a platinum level of service in the United States. He said changes were needed to help the authority achieve equity in the distribution of revenue and expenditures, as well as allow for cost control and containment, which the county cannot do now due to budgets being set by the providers of the service. He said the changes in the countys local bill would not threaten home rule as it gives the providers the ability to provide a higher level at their own expense. Its quite simple, LaSala said. The board wants the authority and accountability that is unclear and lacking in the current special act. He explained that the EMS system uses a public utility model that provides transport by a private provider doing work under the countys license and brand of Sunstar. The county does the billing using information provided by the transport provider. He said Paramedics Plus was chosen via a sealed bid process and a contract was negotiated that included options for renewal ensuring continuity of service for the life of the contract. County commissioners most likely will vote to renew the contract with Paramedics Plus for at least one year on Dec. 6. He said the service provided by Paramedics Plus was superb and second to none in the state of Florida. We have a service that is uniform throughout the county, he said. It is a cost-effective model of delivering effective service. He then outlined the areas where the county and the firefighters agreed and the areas where they did not. Perhaps the biggest sticking point is the issue of cost. Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue and Lt. Scott Sanford, firefighter and paramedic with Palm Harbor Rescue, authors of a plan that advocates firebased transport in place of a private ambulance company, say their plan will save money. However, county staff says actually it will cost more at least $25 million more than a system using changes recommended by the countys consultant. State officials want to get to reality figures, which is the impetus behind Sen. Latvalas proposal to hire an accounting firm to go over the numbers contained in the proposals from the firefighters and countys consultant.Regardless of which plan costs the most, some providers are opposed to changing the way the county pays for their services. The city of St. Petersburg says the method the county proposes to use to reimburse the 18 providers of advance life support (first responder) services, if the Special Act is amended, would put them out of business. St. Petersburg argues that the countys plan does not really save money to the system it just shifts the burden of cost to fire departments and fire districts. Sanford served as the spokesperson for the plan to allow fire-based transport. Jim and I started working on our proposal in direct response to LaSalas IPS plan to save money, he said. He said many believe that the plan supported by LaSala and county staff does not save money or improve service. He said rather than just cutting costs, they had looked for a way to improve service and efficiencies to save money. He said the fire departments had been good partners with the county and had done their best to reduce expenses unlike the transport provider who actually increased the cost of its service to residents. Incorporating fire-based transport is the best way to sustain the system into the future, he said. He said the countys statement that their plan continues the dual response system currently in use is not quite accurate, although multiple units could still respond to calls that warranted dual response. He said the firefighters plan saves money by reducing management and still puts more units on the streets.Response timesSanford said a response time of 4.5 minutes on average could be maintained with the firefighters plan, which is quicker than the 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time that is the countys new standard for level of service. St. Petersburg Fire Chief Jim Large said the countys standard is lower than what has been achieved in the past. He told the legislators that the current average response time in the county is 6.23 minutes 90 percent of the time more than 1 minute faster than the countys mandated standard. Sen. Latvala asked county officials how local response times compared to other areas that use firebased transport and the county had no answer. The legislators then asked Bill Nesmith, a retired Hillsborough County fire chief, who happened to be in the audience, for the answer. Nesmith worked with Tampa Rescue for 24 years and retired as division chief in 1994. He accepted the position of assistant chief with Hillsborough County Fire Rescue that same year and was promoted to chief in 1996. Nesmith is credited with merging the Hillsborough County Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services. Nesmith said response time goals in Hillsborough were 6 minutes 90 percent of the time in urban areas, 7 minutes 90 percent of the time in the suburbs, and 10 minutes 90 percent of the time in rural areas, which Pinellas does not have. Only the rural areas had a response time greater than Pinellas Countys standard of 7.5 minutes. Nesmith said when Hillsborough merged its two departments no paramedics lost their jobs unless they wanted to go. He said paramedics who wanted to do so were cross-trained as firefighters. Others were placed on ALS engines as paramedics. He said he was concerned about delays in ambulance response, which was the complaint of some of the public, who talked about receiving quick response from the fire department only to end up waiting for an ambulance. Another complaint from the public was the cost of ambulance transport via Sunstar. Large said the countys plan would not really increase the number of units on the streets. He said while it did increase the number of Advanced Life Support units, it decreased the number of units overall. The countys consultant recommends removing smaller rescue units in favor of the larger ALS engines. Large said if that happened, it would mean a reduction of 23 rescue units and 13 paramedics, which could lower response times.Support for fire-based transportThe tide seems to be turning in favor of fire-based transport if it proves to be as affordable as some firefighters believe. The majority of people speaking at the Wednesday afternoon public hearing supported at least exploring the option of fire-based transport. No one spoke in support of the countys plan. St. Petersburg Mayor Foster said up until Nov. 28, the county had refused to discuss fire-based transport, which he also supports. He said his city, the largest in the county, responds to 33 percent of the first responder calls in the county, which explains why it employs the most paramedics and has the highest cost of any provider in the system. Foster objects to the proposed new funding formula that he says would shift the costs to the cities. He said the situation was much like the 1980s when the county tried to change how it paid its providers and lost a lawsuit against St. Petersburg. He warned of more legal action if the county proThis chart shows a decline in the historical EMS millage rates from the years 1981 to 2009.

Alex Silversmiths 442-7333090111SILVER & 120811 Woman cited for bad ID following flag theftTREASURE ISLAND A 30-year-old Safety Harbor woman who decided to grab a crossing flag on Gulf Boulevard ended up with a citation from police on another matter. According to a police report, Karla Vivian Taylor was observed taking a crossing flag from the container at Gulf Boulevard and 104th Avenue about 9:15 p.m. on Nov. 27 by Officer Phillip Bock. Taylor had crossed Gulf Boulevard, Bock reported, when she grabbed the flag. When Bock pulled up in his cruiser and stopped Taylor, she threw the flag on the ground. Bock twice asked her to pick up the flag and she refused. When Bock asked her for her identification, she produced her drivers license and was later issued a citation for not having her current Safety Harbor address on the license. Taylor was given a warning for stealing the crossing flag.Man charged with attempted murderDUNEDIN A Palm Harbor man is facing multiple charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer after a hit-and-run crash Nov. 30 in Dunedin. John Michael Lyons, 33, also was charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer; fleeing and eluding with wanton disregard; aggravated assault with a motor vehicle; leaving the scene of an accident with property damage; possession of hydrocodone, diazepam, methadone and morphine. He remains in the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater on bonds in excess of $160,000. The incident started when the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office responded to a hit-and-run traffic crash about 6:46 a.m. Wednesday on the Dunedin Causeway Bridge. The victim, Avria Travelsead, 46, of Largo was parked off the roadway of Causeway Boulevard near the drawbridge doing paperwork as part of his job as foreman for Roland Inc. Lyons was driving a red 2006 Hummer SUV on Causeway Boulevard when he left the roadway and crashed into the rear end of Travelseads 2006 Ford pickup truck. Lyons then backed up and fled the scene. Travelsead immediately called the Sheriffs Office and reported the crash with a description of the suspect vehicle. Deputies spotted the suspect vehicle not far from the scene traveling southbound on U.S. Alt. 19 near San Jose Boulevard in Dunedin. They attempted to make a traffic stop but the suspect refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. The pursuit continued through the Dunedin area onto Hancock Street eastbound from U.S. Alt. 19. The suspect drove over bushes of residences and then back onto Alt. 19 at speeds of 45 mph. Deputies tried to use stop sticks to disable the Hummer at several points in the pursuit, but the suspect was able to see them in the roadway and drove around them. At one point, Lyons saw a deputy deploying stop sticks in the area of Curlew Road and County Road 1, and he drove off the road onto the median at the deputy. The deputy was able to get out of the way. Lyons also attempted to ram and force pursuing deputies off the road several times during the chase. The chase eventually ended back onto Causeway Boulevard as Lyons began driving at speeds exceeding 55 mph not stopping for deputies. At the western end of the causeway is the entrance to Honeymoon Island Park, which was closed. Lyons crashed through the gate into the park continuing westbound. There are no other entrances in or out of the park, which is surrounded by water. Lyons tried to go eastbound back through the entrance but deputies were waiting with stop sticks. Lyons was unable to avoid the sticks and ran over them flattening the tires of the Hummer. He attempted to continue driving but was rammed by a deputy, forcing the Hummer off the road into a power pole at Elgin Place and Causeway Boulevard. When deputies pulled Lyons from the vehicle, he was only wearing a T-shirt and boxer shorts. Deputies found several different types of prescription drugs in his vehicle, including oxycodone, morphine, and eight syringes. Lyons told deputies he was planning on fishing from the causeway when for unknown reasons he went off the road and crashed into Travelsead. Deputies did not find any fishing tackle in his vehicle.Car burglars prey on unlocked doorsCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department reminds the public to always lock their cars. Over the weekend of Dec. 3 and 4, there were eight burglaries of unlocked vehicles in the area of Hibiscus Street and Admiral Woodson Lane during the early morning hours, according to a police post on the departments Facebook page. Stolen were GPS devices, a wallet with credit cards and other valuables. Three of the incidents were reported by the victims, and the rest were discovered by police officers while they conducted a neighborhood canvas.Armed robber arrestedCLEARWATER Clearwater Police arrested a suspect after a pursuit on Dec. 3. Clearwater Police received an alert at 11:20 p.m. from Largo Police for an armed home invasion robbery and carjacking, according to a Clearwater Facebook announcement. At 11:28 p.m., Clearwater Police officers located the stolen vehicle in the area of Belcher Road and Logan Street. The suspect quickly accelerated as he saw cruisers preparing to make a stop, the report said. Officers engaged in a pursuit based on the Largo Polices violent felony charges. The suspect eventually stopped and surrendered on Belcher Road south of Gulf to Bay Boulevard. While the suspect was being removed from the vehicle, his vehicle coasted into a cruiser, causing minor damage. The suspect, Aaron Joseph Wilson, 18, of Largo was charged with home invasion robbery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, delinquent felon in possession of a weapon, fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer, and non-valid drivers license call of court. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $140,250 bond.Reverse drug sting yields seven arrestsCLEARWATER A reverse drug sting yielded seven arrests by the Clearwater Police Department on Dec. 2, according to a police Facebook announcement. Officers acted as undercover decoys targeting drug dealers and buyers in the 1300 block of Cleveland Street, 1400 block of Gulf to Bay Boulevard, and 1100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. The following suspects were arrested during this operation: Antonio M. Scott, 28, of Clearwater was charged with convicted felon in possession of a weapon. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a $10,000 bond. Edgar L. Battle, 38, of Clearwater was charged with three counts sale of crack cocaine, violation of parole for obtaining roxicodone by fraud, and three counts of possession of crack cocaine. No bond was available for his violation for parole. Bond for the rest of his charges was set at $36,000. Akeem Zellner, 20 of Clearwater was charged with three counts of possession of crack cocaine, possession of marijuana, sale or delivery of crack cocaine, possession of oxycodone, and sale or delivery of crack cocaine. Bond was set at $19,150. Jennifer Russo, 36, of Clearwater was charged with two counts of possession of crack cocaine, and possession of paraphernalia. No bond was allowed for two of her charges, and the other was set at $2,000.

Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, announced that at his suggestion District 7 of the Florida Department of Transportation has begun the process of determining if an underutilized state asset can be put back to work to help create jobs and new economic activity in central Pinellas County. The old Sunshine Speedway not only generated family-oriented entertainment, but also fostered a number of small auto repair businesses in the corridor between Ulmerton Road and 118th Avenue North. This property was purchased by the state for the Roosevelt Boulevard connector, which has been postponed. Constituents of the senator have suggested reopening the speedway in the interim, which he then discussed with FDOT. Officials have now agreed to advertise for bids on leasing the property. This is a win-win situation for the state, which will receive rent until it is used for road construction, and for the community, which will benefit from jobs at the facility and in the collateral auto repair businesses related to the track, Latvala said. For more information, call Latvalas office at 5566500.Center collecting holiday donationsPINELLAS PARK The Pinellas PACE Center for Girls is requesting donations to help make the holiday season memorable for its students.

Decorating for the holidays most always includes using plants and flowers to beautify our environment. There are many plants and flowers that are toxic to pets but only a few of the most popular holiday plants will be discussed here. It is important to know what parts of the plant or flower are toxic and what symptoms your pet may experience. Holly is used in making wreaths or decorating mantles. It is the berries that are toxic. The severity of the symptoms usually correlates with how many berries are eaten. The symptoms seen after ingestion are vomiting, diarrhea, and depression. Mistletoe is customarily hung in doorways so that when two people are under the mistletoe at the same time they are obliged to kiss. The berries are toxic but some sources say that the leaves and stem are more toxic than the berries. Either way, it is important to make sure that these are not ingested. This plant can cause significant vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, decreased heart rate, erratic behavior, sudden collapse and even death. Amaryllis (with red or red and white flowers) is very popular during the holiday season. It is the flower that is most toxic. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, depressed appetite, excessive salivation, tremors, and sometimes abdominal pain. Poinsettia is probably the most frequently seen holiday plant. It is the sap from the leaves (not the flower) that can be irritating if ingested. If enough is eaten it can cause vomiting but it is basically nontoxic. Christmas cactus only blooms around Christmas time and is generally used for center pieces. This plant is mainly toxic only in large quantities. Vomiting and diarrhea sometimes with blood, and depression are the typical symptoms. Christmas rose is a plant with a white flower. The entire plant is toxic. The most commonly seen symptoms are diarrhea with blood, abdominal pain, vomiting, and delirium. Jerusalem cherry is a plant that has orange and red berries and is typically used as a centerpiece. These berries are extremely toxic especially in the green and yellow states. Ingestion results in vomiting, diarrhea, depression, mouth ulcers, shock, and even death. It is extremely important to contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency clinic if you suspect your pet has ingested a toxic plant. The more information you can give your veterinarian the better. Knowing what type of plant was ingested, how much was ingested, the time of ingestion, and what symptoms your pet is showing will help your veterinarian take appropriate action.

With cold fronts coming through late-week, brisk north winds will prevail for a couple of days until high pressure settles in and we start to see those east winds again, and just about the time those winds lighten up enough to make things feel comfortable out there, you can pretty much plan on another one coming through. Days with light east winds have allowed for short offshore runs into the gulf for the tasty white grunts, sea bass and porgies. Depths of 25 to 30 foot have been most productive for the grunts and porgies and shallower ledges in 15 to 20 foot have been best for sea bass. Squid will work for all three species, but a piece of sardine or small white bait works best for the sea bass. Inshore fishing has been tough over the past week; a major cool down followed by strong winds will usually put fish off for a few days. With any luck this weeks front wont be nearly as dramatic. Full moon tides will hopefully have fish on the feed. Morning negative low tides will give you a chance to stalk tailing redfish if the winds arent too strong. A live select shrimp will get the job done. If the winds blowin anchor up and fish with cut ladyfish or pinfish on the bottom. Morning mid-level high tides this week will have redfish, gator trout and sheepshead cruising the flats searching for crustaceans and bait fish before this next front comes through. If the winds stay light and the skies are clear, sight fishing can be excellent. Drifting, poling or running the trolling motor on low will allow you to get close enough to the fish for an accurate shot. Once a productive area is found stake off and patiently wait for fish to come within range. A live select shrimp tail hooked is the bait of choice; however a weed-less rigged soft plastic jerk bait in watermelon/red flake works quite well. Sheepshead are all over the flats and are pretty tricky to catch when theyre that shallow. As the water continues to cool off and we get on these big moon phases, look for the sheepshead to school up around the bridges and jetties. Fresh pieces of shrimp or live fiddler crabs work great for sheepshead. Just be sure to use a small enough hook so that you stand a better chance for hookups.Send us your fishing photosSEMINOLE Got a trophy catch youd like the world to see?

Email to bmcclure@TBNweekly.com. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Fishing notebook State moves to protect sharksThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission moved Nov. 16 to prohibit the harvest of tiger sharks and three species of hammerheads from state waters in an effort to further protect the predators that rely on Florida waters to survive. The new measures, which also prohibit the possession, sale and exchange of tiger sharks and great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks harvested from state waters, will go into effect Jan. 1. These sharks can still be caught and released in state waters and can be taken in adjacent federal waters. The change got its start in 2010, after concerned citizens, shark researchers and shark anglers expressed a desire for increased protections for sharks. Florida waters offer essential habitat for young sharks, which is important for species such as the slow-to-reproduce tiger shark, which takes about 15 years to reach maturity. Sharks have been strictly regulated in Florida since 1992, with a one-shark-per-person, twosharks-per-vessel daily bag limit for all recreational and commercial harvesters and a ban on shark finning. Roughly two-dozen overfished, vulnerable or rare shark species are catch-and-release only in Florida waters. The FWC is also working on an educational campaign highlighting fishing and handling techniques that increase the survival rate of sharks that are caught and released while ensuring the safety of the anglers targeting them. For more information on shark fishing visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater Fishing and either Recreational Regulations or Commercial.FWC suggests life-saving holiday gift for boatersThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has a suggestion for anyone shopping for a boater this holiday. A new, comfortable life jacket makes an ideal gift, and it could save someones life. A lot of people dont wear life jackets because they feel theyre uncomfortable, said Capt. Tom Shipp of the FWCs Boating and Waterways Section. However, with newer models, such as belt packs or suspenders, you hardly feel them. Replacing an old, bulky life jacket with a newer model makes a great gift. Belt-pack and suspender life jackets are inflatable. Some inflate automatically when a person falls into the water, while others inflate after the wearer pulls a cord. Prices of the belt-pack and suspender life jackets start at approximately $60. Frequently, a life jacket can save a life during a boating accident, Shipp said. One of the main responsibilities for FWC officers is helping residents and visitors boat safely. They often check boaters for adherence to safety regulations and educate them about safe boating practices. Unfortunately, at other times, FWC officers are called to the scene of boating accidents. Many of the boating accidents the FWC investigates involve drowning deaths. Last year, there were 79 boating fatalities 49 of them by drowning. The FWC confirms that life jackets may have saved those lives and recommends boaters wear one at all times on the water. Bottom line: If you fall overboard with a life jacket on, your chances of survival are greatly enhanced. This holiday season, the gift of a life jacket could be a gift of life. For more boating safety information visit MyFWC.com/Boating or call 850-488-5600. The Beacon. A tradition in your neighborhood.

Peripheral Arterial Disease occurs when cholesterol causes blockages in the leg, which impede blood flow to the lower extremities. Getting that blood pumping the way it should is getting easier thanks to new technology call Stealth. Stealth is used to restore blood flow to extremities in an effort to avoid amputation. The device uses a diamond coated burr to cut through plaque in the small vessels in the leg, said Merrill Krolick, D.O., and interventional cardiologist, in a press release. The procedure is done without a surgical incision. Dr. Krolick is one of the first in the area to use the Stealth at Largo Medical Center, said Janet Morra, vice president of cardiovascular services at Largo Medical Center. Patients can often have their procedure done early in the morning and are discharged later the same day. It is estimated that 12 million Americans suffer from PAD. It will often present with symptoms including: tired legs, heaviness in the legs, non-healing ulcers, and pain while walking. People who have this disorder may have underlying coronary artery disease and can die of a heart attack. PAD is a serious condition that if not treated can lead to painful legs, gangrene, and removal of toes or even removal of a limb. It is important that an evaluation of the peripheral circulation be done and to make every effort to restore any impaired blood flow to the limb. Krolick says patients who may not be well enough for an open surgical procedure to restore circulation, can be treated safely with this technique.Mease Dunedin Hospital earns second Energy Star DUNEDIN Mease Dunedin Hospital continues to rank among leading facilities nationwide recognized for superior energy efficiency, earning it the prestigious Energy Star for the second consecutive year. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that is designed to minimize energy consumption, cut costs and reduce impact on the environment through voluntary energy-efficient products and practices. Energy Stars ability to help businesses, organizations and consumers across the country reduces energy consumption and costs in 2010 were estimated at $18 billion. Earning a second Energy Star rating is a significant achievement because it validates that these efforts are successfully in helping to manage our resources, while also benefiting the environment through better conservation practices, said Lou Galdieri, chief operating officer for Mease Dunedin, in a press release. We are committed to continuing these efforts while also maintaining the highest quality of patient care possible. To earn the Energy Star, Mease Dunedin took the following actions: Installed Power Logic electric sub meters, which allow staff to monitor, analyze and react to energy consumption Created custom programs in the building automation system to optimize the heating and cooling equipment while providing a comfortable environment Educated team members to be aware and diligent about turning off computers, printers and nonessential equipment when not in use Maintaining and improving operation of energy plant equipment including a preventative maintenance program. Energy Star was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.Atkinson elected to serve APCCLEARWATER The Rev.

ROOTH GILBERT J. ROOTH Finding the right mechanic makes all the difference in the worldAs a mom, I do a lot of driving. I need my mini van, my typical mom, vehicle in good shape. I like to make sure everything is always running well. I get my regular oil changes and have the tires rotated. Im really not mechanically savvy (or would want to be for that matter), but I do want to know if I take my vehicle in to a shop or mechanic that I wont be ripped off. Ive been to places where they will up-sell you on services that you really dont need. Why do they do that? In my mind, I think they want to make more money and know most women dont know too much about cars. If youre like me, we moms want to have our vehicles safe because we have our children in the car and dont want anything to happen because we didnt have something fixed. I am so fortunate to have found a great mechanic in town that I can go to and have look at my van whenever I have a problem. He usually checks it out right on the spot and tells me whats wrong and how much to fix it. A few years ago, I remember taking my van in for something that needed to be fixed, and first I had it checked out by the dealership to get an estimate. I had my two little girls with me when I went. We had to wait in the lobby for two hours for the dealership to give me an estimate that was pretty costly. I called my husband to see if he wanted me to go ahead with getting the van fixed after the estimate. He thought it was high and said to take the van to our local mechanic, Craig at Honest Engine, to see what he said. When I took it there, the estimate was half the price, and it took 30 minutes to fix. I was so impressed. He was so nice and didnt make me wait. Since then, I have had a flat tire and within minutes, he fixed it. The other good thing is it is usually half the price of other places I have gone to in the past. I just feel like Im not being taken advantage. His oil changes are a little more than some of the places around town with discounts, but I dont mind paying a little more, because I dont get harassed about all the things that really dont need to be fixed. I know if Craig tells me something needs to be fixed, it needs to be fixed. Its nice to be able to find a local mechanic who you trust and who cares about people rather than making a few extra bucks. I think thats why his shop stays pretty busy. People like the way he does business. I also have to tell you about another recent experience I had, which I found to be amazing. I had one of my front headlights go out. I thought, I am going to be proactive and go to one of the auto part stores and get the bulb for my husband to fix. I dont know why, but going into an auto parts store is out of my realm. Probably the experience is similar to how a man feels if he had to buy makeup. Anyway, I went in and told the man that I had a headlight out and needed a new bulb. He said, OK, we have it. The next part of this experience is what caught me off guard. He said, Would you like me to put it in for you? I agreed. At that moment, I really didnt know if he was just being nice or if I was going to be charged to put the headlight in. I didnt ask and thought I might as well get it done because it was dark outside and I thought I could get a ticket if I didnt get it fixed. A man named Jerry put the light in. He didnt charge me anything. I asked him if he could take a tip. He said they didnt take tips. I then asked him if they did this for everybody. He said, We try as long as its not too extensive of a job to do. I was so excited to go home and tell my husband that I actually had the light fixed and that they do it for free at the Pinellas Park Auto Zone when you buy the parts there. People like Craig and Jerry make me feel so much better about going to get my vehicle fixed. They make me believe there really are nice people who care and are helpful, especially to moms like me who just want their vehicle in good running condition.

14A Viewpoints Beacon, December 8, 2011The Clearwater City Council has set aside $100,123 to fund a plan that has much potential for economic development in the city. Despite the costs involved, the council needs to take such steps to lay the groundwork to improve the business climate in the city. Along those lines, an economic development specialist will be hired at a cost of $52,746 to conduct research, support business retention and expansion efforts and implement other aspects of the plan. The plan prepared by TIP Strategies Inc., a Texas consulting firm, envisions an employment center overlay district, a technology district in the Cleveland Street corridor and medical overlay district near Morton Plant Hospital. The idea is to accomplish the goals through business friendly initiatives, a formal incentive policy and a business retention and expansion program as well as using tourism marketing to create business opportunities. Such goals mirror some of the recommendations in the Clearwater Business Task Forces final report, issued in August. During its review, the task force found that the citys process is viewed by the general public and business community as too complicated, time-consuming and expensive. The task force recommended that the city should adopt a culture of becoming customer-centric, requiring that services be designed around customers needs. The city should have a proactive strategy if it wishes to be recognized as the premier place to do business in the Tampa Bay region among surrounding municipalities that have adopted more user-friendly codes and services, the task force said. City of Largo officials also have embraced more business-friendly practices, and officials say they are hearing positive comments from the business community, after years of hearing complaints. Certainly, improving business opportunities in any city takes time, especially in a sputtering economy. A multi-faceted approach, looking at the array of city community development services and regulation, often is needed. But if Clearwater officials continue to make economic development and business-friendly incentives a priority, they should see results. The costs to achieve the necessary goals may raise eyebrows, but major changes in communities often require a solid commitment from the pocketbooks as well as the lips. A newspapers obituary page is a thing of great comfort, if you regard it the right way. Its the most democratic part of the paper, in that it focuses on one of the few things that happens to us all dying. Its where we average blokes are finally able to stand eye-to-eye with the captains and the kings of the world. Some obituaries are grandiose and gassy; others are so brief they make you wonder how and why an entire life can be reduced to a few lines. Many obits do not completely or accurately reflect the life of the deceased. Rather, they state only what the survivors wish to have the public believe. The numbers of dead folks who die surrounded by a devoted spouse and children are roughly ten times more numerous than the totals of genuinely happy families. Or so I have suspected over the years. Some obits list cause of death; others do not. Im astounded and alarmed by the number of women who succumb to breast cancer. I hear that progress is being made against cancer (and it surely should be, if the number of fundraising road races, marches and dinners are any indication), but the obit pages dont seem to show it. When the cause of death is not stated, readers are left to wonder why. Possibly (although by no means necessarily) the death is the result of alcoholism, drug use, HIV infection or suicide. Even when the alcoholic or drug addict has been sober and straight for the final years of his/her life, its rare to see that triumph mentioned in the obit. Each time I read an obit page Im relieved to find no mention of my name or that of my friends. Im fascinated by the varying eternal destinations of the departed. Some go to a final resting-place. Others to the waiting arms of Jesus or the Lord God Jehovah. Still others go to rejoin their predeceased family members or poker buddies. Many simply die. Its nice that we all have these choices. If a family wanted an obit to read Harry kicked the bucket or Julie finally bought the farm, would a newspaper allow such colloquial references? I dont see why not. Such offhand phrasing would in no way demean the other obits on the page. If you think you stay well-informed about whos who in the world, reading the obit pages will quickly persuade you otherwise. Each week Ill encounter the obits of geniuses and titans of science, finance, literature, government and entertainment none of whom Ill have heard of until the day they die. A similar reaction occurs when I read the obit of someone I thought had died years ago. A recent example was the death of the New York Times political reporter Tom Wicker. I had thought he cashed in his chips years ago. Turns out he was only retired. Maybe thats why some folks refuse to retire. They equate retirement with death. I suppose there are some similarities. I own a marvelous paperback book titled The Portable Obituary How the Famous, Rich and Powerful Really Died. The author is Michael Largo, who must have spent several years digging through obits and news reports following the deaths of hundreds of well-known and less known public figures. The entries in this book tell as much or more about the subjects lives as about their deaths. Example: Stephen Foster, Americas first composer of popular songs (Beautiful Dreamer, Oh, Susanna, and Old Folks at Home) earned only $15,091 for his entire lifetimes work. Music companies and other thieves stole his royalties, and Foster drank away what little was left. At his death in 1864, he had 38 cents in his pocket. If you ask a thousand people, What are your thoughts about death? youll get a thousand different answers. Pianist Oscar Levant was so afraid of death he refused to allow its mention by anyone in his presence. I feel sorry for anyone like that. I especially am saddened by people who believe in hell, and who therefore fear going there. Comedian Woody Allens most famous quote about death: Im not afraid of dying. I just dont want to be there when it happens. Actress Katharine Hepburn said Death will be a great relief no more interviews. Playwright August Wilson: Death aint nothing but a fastball on the outside corner. Philosopher and atheist Richard Dawkins: Being dead will be no different from being unborn I shall be just as I was in the time of William the Conqueror or the dinosaurs or the trilobites. There is nothing to fear in that. Perhaps the healthiest attitude toward death was expressed by J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan. He said, To die will be an awfully big adventure.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net.An examination of the obituary pageKudos for Rep. YoungEditor: I would like to recognize U.S. Rep. Bill Young for his leadership that has resulted in outstanding benefits for our deserving elders. I was pleased to help honor him with the 2011 RetireSafe Standing Up For Americas Seniors Award in his district office on Nov. 28. During Youngs many decades of service, he has championed legislation that helps seniors. During the 111th Congress he supported many bills, including the Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients Act; the Medicare Patient IVIG Access Act; and the Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act, all serving to increase access to care. He also founded the Congressional Social Security Caucus, which is dedicated to protecting and preserving the Social Security system. He genuinely cares about seniors. RetireSafe, who led the award, is recognizing a bipartisan group of U.S. representatives across the country that put seniors first, and it is only fitting that Rep. Bill Young is among them. Austin Curry Executive director Elder Care Advocacy of FloridaThanks for the donationsEditor: On behalf of the staff, teachers and students of Largo High School, we want to thank you for the donations of flowers, shrubbery and plants that you have given us over the past year. Last year we asked that you donate your poinsettias instead of trashing them. Wow, you sure did. Unfortunately, as you know, not everything you plant makes it. The ones that did survive look wonderful. We have our finest plant next to the administration. Its about 4 feet high and doing well. Ive had people ask why Im spending money on plants when the school is needing tighter spending. I hope this will explain where we get our plant supplies. We ask people at garage sales, landscapers who have over ordered and they have been generous. I bring many things from my own yard. Ive traded other folks for what I have for something they have. Also, I am a volunteer. Happily many of our students help us out in keeping the campus looking good. So I hope this answers your questions. Now, if you have a plant or etc. that you dont want, please call me. Ill help you extract it from the ground and I will plant it on the grounds. Thank you all for mentoring our school. I must confess I graduated from LHS class of 1959. Yes, thats right, Im older than mud. We work at LHS with all of our employees; our maintenance team is the best in the county. Our teachers and coaches are the best. Just look at our athletic teams. Far above the rest of the county. Well, thats my personal opinion. So before you throw away your Thanksgiving and Christmas flowers, please consider dropping them off to LHS. We thank you in advance. Marie F. Hoke-Singer Master gardener Largo In 2008, I wrote a book called Liberal Fascism. That title came from H.G. Wells, one of the most important socialist writers in the English language. He believed, as did his fellow Fabian socialists, that Western democratic capitalism had outlived its usefulness. What was needed was a new, bold, forward-thinking system run by experts with access to the most modern techniques. For Wells, the label for such a system mattered less than the imperative that we implement a revolution-from-above. He admired how the Germans, Italians and Russians were getting things done. In 1932 he proposed calling his revolutionary movement enlightened Nazism or liberal fascism. Wells was hardly alone. Such arguments were being made in all the Western democracies, under a thousand different banners. Most progressives rejected terms like fascist or Communist, but they still touted foreign tyrannies as superior to the outmoded democratic capitalism of the 19th century. Lincoln Steffens, the muckraking journalist, was a great fan of both Italian fascism and Soviet communism. He returned from a trip to Russia to proclaim, I have seen the future, and it works! Some things never change. Andy Stern announced recently that hes been to the future, and it works. In this case, the future resides in China, which he says has a superior economic system. The conservative-preferred, free-market fundamentalist, shareholder-only model so successful in the 20th century is being thrown onto the trash heap of history in the 21st century. Whos Andy Stern? Hes just the guy who, until last year, ran the Service Employees International Union, which under his leadership spent more than any organization to get Obama elected in 2008, some $28 million. Comparatively, Sterns influence in the Democratic Party eclipses that of, say, the allegedly sinister Koch brothers or anti-tax activist Grover Norquist among Republicans. Stern himself visited the White House more than any other person during Obamas first year in office (53 times). Stern sees the Chinese governments allegedly keen ability to plan its way to prosperity as the new model for America. It is an argument of profound asininity. China had five-year plans before it started getting rich. Under the old five-year plans, China killed tens of millions of its own people and remained mired in poverty. What made China rich wasnt planning, it was the decision to switch to markets (albeit corrupt ones). The planners were merely in charge of distributing the wealth that markets created. Indeed, rapid economic growth always makes government planners look like geniuses when the reality is that the planners are more like self-proclaimed rainmakers who started dancing only after it started raining. When the rain stops, which it will, theyll have much to answer for. Oh, and what about labor? Theres one labor union in China, and its run by the government. (The Nazis had pretty much the same system.) Stern doesnt seem to care. More intriguingly, SEIU is a huge supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which, taken at its word, is most concerned with income inequality and the back-room corruption that comes from crony capitalism. And Stern touts China as the model for how to fix things? China has 115 billionaires and at least 115 million people living on a dollar a day or less. Nearly all of those billionaires got rich gaming a corrupt political system. Obviously, the core problem with China envy is not economic but moral. To the extent that Chinas economic planning works, it does so because China is an authoritarian country. (Japan has been planning its economy within democratic restraints and has been dying on the economic vine for nearly 20 years.) You can hit your building quota a lot more easily when you can shoot inconvenient people and trample property rights at will. The Three Gorges Dam displaced more than a million people who were given three choices: move, jail, death. Stern joins a long list of liberals whove seen China embrace authoritarian capitalism and conclude that the secret to that success had to be the authoritarianism. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, my usual whipping boy in this department, has written thousands of words rhapsodizing about his envy of China. President Obama himself has said hes envious of Chinas president and has touted Chinas infrastructure spending as something to emulate. If you want to copy China because its authoritarian capitalism is better than our democratic capitalism, it seems pretty obvious that what you envy is the authoritarianism. H.G. Wells had a phrase for that.Jonah Goldberg is editor-at-large of National Review Online and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

The feature film will be Looking ahead Looking aheadWhen attending a performance of Alan Ayckbourns 1994 dramacomedy Communicating Doors, the first thing that comes to mind is how much Rod Serling (of Twilight Zone fame) would have enjoyed the play. Ayckbourn, a prolific English playwright, uses a device straight out of the golden age of science fiction to set up this drama that is at times wildly comic and at times splendidly suspenseful. West Coast Players thoroughly engaging production of Communicating Doors runs through Dec. 18 at West Coast Players Theatre, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. What is Ayckbourns clever device? The Communicating Doors of the plays title are in fact a set of doors found in a sixth-floor suite in the five-star Regal Hotel. The doors dont lead to a run-of-the-mill broom closet, though: They allow characters to travel through time with some restrictions. The play opens in 2014. Julian, a clearly cold-blooded businessman and apparent caregiver, has negotiated the services of Poopay, a prostitute/dominatrix, for his lifelong business partner Reece, a frail and elderly man. When Julian leaves the two alone, Reece reveals he isnt interested in her professional services. Reece wants her to sign a document as witness to his confession of a lifetime of transgressions and wrongdoing. Once she has signed it, Reece beseeches her to deliver it to a specific attorney. It is revealed that while Reece has enjoyed a prosperous life, his success came at a high price: He admits to a string of atrocious acts and admits Julian murdered two of his wives. Before Poopay can leave the hotel suite, Julian realizes Reece has spilled the beans and that he cant allow the prostitute to escape. Escape she does, however, through the time-warping doors delivering her back 20 years to the same room and introducing her to Reeces second wife, Ruella. Of course, Poopay doesnt immediately realize what has happened and its fun to watch the two women try to reason things out. Eventually, Ruella has a go at the doors, too. Heres where those time-traveling restrictions come into play. Poopay can only travel back and forth between 2014 and 1994; Ruella can only travel back and forth between 1994 and 1974. Fortunately, each accessible point in time happens to be a crucialOn stage Photos by DANIEL HAMMERBERGFrom left, Julia Rudgers stars as Poopay, Janice Creneti as Ruella and Tara Fuller as Jessica in West Coast Players production of Communicating Doors, running through Dec. 18. moment in Reeces life. Ruella, for instance, stumbles into the room in 1974 interrupting Reeces honeymoon with his first wife, Jessica. Communicating Doors seems to draw from a number of sources, including the classic British bedroom farce, Serlings brand of character-driven science-fiction storytelling and Alfred Hitchcocks tense psychological thriller. Ayckbourn clearly intends the play as a study of the concepts of fortune and free will, but his presentation is cyclically witty, persuasive and poignant. Directed by Ashlie Mohney, West Coast Players production ofAndrew Hughes stars as Reece and Tara Fuller as Jessica in Communicating Doors.

New Years Eve celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, with intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year. The SitterGenre: Comedy Cast: Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor, Max Records, Kevin Hernandez and J.B. Smoove Director: David Gordon Green Rated: RWhen the worlds most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the worlds worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, its anyones guess whos going to make it home in one piece. The Sitter is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Jonah Hill.Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, SpyGenre: Adaptation and thriller Cast: Gary Oldman, Kathy Burke, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and John Hurt Director: Tomas Alfredson Rated: R The time is 1973. The Cold War of the mid-20th Century continues to damage international relations. Britains Secret Intelligence Service, aka MI6 and code-named the Circus, is striving to keep pace with other countries espionage efforts and to keep the U.K. secure. The head of the Circus, known as Control (John Hurt), personally sends dedicated operative Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) into Hungary. But Jims mission goes bloodily awry, and Control is forced out of the Circus as is his top lieutenant, George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a career spy with razorsharp senses. Estranged from his absent wife Ann, Smiley is soon called in to see undersecretary Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney); he is to be rehired in secret at the governments behest, as there is a gnawing fear that the Circus has long been compromised by a double agent, or mole, working for the Soviets and jeopardizing England. Supported by younger agent Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch), Smiley parses Circus activities past and present. In trying to track and identify the mole, Smiley is haunted by his decades-earlier interaction with the shadowy Russian spymaster Karla. The moles trail remains cold until maverick field agent Ricki Tarr (Tom Hardy) unexpectedly contacts Lacon. While undercover in Turkey, Ricki has fallen for a betrayed married woman, Irina (Svetlana Khodchenkova), who claims to possess crucial intelligence. Separately, Smiley learns that Control narrowed down the list of mole suspects to five men. They are the ambitious Percy Alleline (Toby Jones), whom he had code-named Tinker; suavely confident Bill Haydon (Colin Firth), dubbed Tailor; stalwart Roy Bland (Ciaran Hinds), called Soldier; officious Toby Esterhase (David Dencik), dubbed Poor Man; and Smiley himself. Even before the startling truth is revealed, the emotional and physical tolls on the players enmeshed in the deadly international spy game will escalate.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.I Melt With YouGenre: Thriller and drama Cast: Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, Christian McKay and Carla Gugino Director: Mark Pellington Rated: R Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Tim (Christian McKay), and Jonathan (Rob Lowe) are friends from college who gather for a weekend each year to celebrate their friendship and catch up with each other. On the surface, they look like other men going through life: They have careers and families and responsibilities. But as with many people, there is more to them than meets the eye. As the weekend progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess. Fueled by sex, drugs, and rock n roll, their bacchanalian reunion drives them to an unexpected place where they are forced to confront themselves and the choices theyve made.Young AdultGenre: Comedy Cast: Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson, Elizabeth Reaser and Collette Wolfe Director: Jason Reitman Rated: R Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasnt quite gotten over high school, either.
