Scott vetoes bill affecting PSTA funds

Measure would have allowed alternative ways to finance operations


By SUZETTE PORTER


Governor Rick Scott vetoed a bill April 6 that
would have allowed Pinellas Suncoast Transit Au-
thority to look for alternative ways to fund its oper-
ations besides collection of property tax.
Scott listed three objections in a veto letter.
He wrote that the bill would require PSTA to stop
collecting its ad valorem tax revenue if county vot-
ers approved a 1 percent Charter County and Re-
gional Systems Surtax.
If the taxpayers approve the sales tax surcharge,
PSTA has the ability to cease collection of the ad


valorem and prevent "double taxation" without the
mandatory language of the bill, the letter contin-
ued.
'The bill also provides an opportunity for propo-
nents of the sales tax to use the legislation to build
support for approval of a local referendum.
Promoting the sales tax in place of property tax
as 'a swap' will result in a large overall tax increase
in the county," Scott said.
County officials have said for some time that
property taxes can't pay for the county's transit
needs. PSTA officials were happy to receive support
from the Legislature.


"We are optimistic that the Legislature's passage
of the tax swap measure will allow PSTA to change
its primary funding source and significantly im-
prove transit service in our community," PSTA CEO
Brad Miller said after House Bill 865 was passed by
the Legislature in March.
Miller released a statement April 9 in reaction to
the governor's veto.
"PSTA is committed to our dual mission of operating
and Improving a successful transportation system while
always responsibly managing the public investment that

Historical gathering

Seminole's longtime Campbell family celebrates its 75th annual reunion
By NANCY BARLOW
SEMINOLE Benjamin Franklin Campbell and his wife Mar-
garet Ann Taylor Campbell moved to Seminole soon after the war.
The Civil War, that is.
Maggie and Ben, a Confederate veteran, first settled in the
Alafia River area, coming to Seminole in 1873. There was not
much of a road south of Largo at that time; wagons bumped
along a path "paved" with pine straw.
They established a homestead on what is now Park Boulevard,
west of Seminole Boulevard. Their first home was a log house
with a stick and mud chimney. After the birth of a few children,
they built a larger log home. Ben's dream of living in a house
built of lumber eventually came true, and there they raised nine
children. One son died at an early age; the surviving eight pro-
duced a total of 27 children the "first cousins."
Ben and Maggie's descendants gathered Saturday, March 24
for their 75th consecutive annual Campbell Reunion. The re-
union is held each year on the Saturday nearest Maggie's birth-
day, March 20.
With more than 70 family members present, the reunion was
held at the Armed Forces Military Museum off Ulmerton Road.
The family toured the museum and was inspired with renewed
appreciation for those who have served our country in the mili-
tary. Later, dinner was served in the "Officers Club." Five genera-
tions of Campbells enjoyed the celebration.
The reunion's theme was recognition of the family's war veter- Photos courtesy of NANCY BARLOW

Ben and Maggie arrived.
Of the 27 "first cousins," only one survives. Kenneth Laurent,
son of Kate Campbell Laurent, came from Bartow with two of his
nephews to attend the reunion. Ken is a World War II veteran
and has traveled and lived in many countries where he helped
people learn better agricultural methods while with the USDA.
The largest delegation were descendants of Leon Campbell,
who owned Jasmine Groves, one of the fruit packing businesses
that lined Seminole Boulevard when it was a two-lane road
known as Route 19 in the 1940s and 1950s. The families of
Leon's grandchildren, Gordon Campbell Nichols, Sherry Nichols
Rasmussen and Eve Campbell Booth (residents of Seminole,
Pinellas Park and Ocala, respectively), accounted for more than
half of those attending.
Civic-minded Leon Campbell was instrumental in the con-
struction in 1930 of The Log Cabin, which still stands at the cor-
ner of Seminole Boulevard and 54th Avenue. The building was a
WPA project and CCC workers put it together. The Log Cabin /
served for many years as headquarters for the Seminole Civic

Rays sweep Yanks


Teammates mob Carlos Pena
after his walk-off single
against the New York
Yankees Friday, April 6, at
Tropicana Field. Pena got
things started with a grand
slam in the first inning, giving
the Rays a 4-0 lead. By the
ninth inning, the lead had
disappeared and the Rays
trailed 6-5. In the bottom of
the ninth, Desmond Jennings
singled and scored on a Ben
Zobrist triple to tie the game.
With Zobrist standing on
third, Pena drove a Mariano
Rivera pitch deep to left-
center, scoring Zobrist to win
the game, 7-6. The Rays went
on to sweep the Yankees in
the three-game series, which
drew close to 99,000 fans.

Pinellas bed tax
collections up 17 percent
CLEARWATER Tax Collector Diane Nelson re-
ports tourist development tax collections from
February increased 17 percent compared to the
same period last year.
The Tax Collector's Office collected $2.8 million in
tourist development taxes in Pinellas County this
past February, compared to $2.4 million in Febru-
ary 2011.
The tourist development tax is a 5 percent tax -
known as the "bed tax" required by Florida law on
accommodations rented for six months or less. The
TD tax produces close to $25 million each year in
Pinellas County, used mainly for tourism marketing
by the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention
& Visitors Bureau.
The Tax Collector's Office implemented an online
payment system for TD taxpayers in 2010, and now
more than 70 percent of TD collections are pro-
cessed online.
For more information about tourist development
taxes, visit taxcollect.com or contact the tax collec-
tor's office at 5007.

County names
executive director
CLEARWATER Pinellas County Administrator
Robert S. LaSala announced the selection of David
E. Scott as executive director of the Department of
Environment and Infrastructure.
Scott is currently the transportation engineer for
the Department of Public Works in Norfolk, Va.
He has served as the director of Public Works for
both the city of Baltimore, Md., and the city of At-
lanta, Ga.
Scott has more than 25 years of experience in
large complex public works and utilities administra-
tion. He earned a master's degree in engineering
and has held leadership positions in professional
and civic organizations.
"Scott has broad experience in county govern-
ment functions and demonstrates strong manage-
ment and leadership skills. I believe we are


fortunate to secure a professional executive with Mr.
Scott's background," LaSala said. "I am confident he
will make a positive contribution to Pinellas Coun-
ty."
"I am looking forward to the challenges and op-
portunities that Pinellas County offers," Scott said.
'This position is an opportunity to engage with the
staff and the community around the quality of life
issues in the Department of Environment and In-
frastructure that are so important to the long-term
future of the county".
Scott will begin work with Pinellas County on May
14.

County marks Public Safety
Telecommunicators Week
CLEARWATER Each year, the second full week
of April is dedicated to the men and women who
serve as public safety dispatchers. Patricia Ander-
son of the Contra Costa County, Calif., Sheriffs Of-
fice, first conceived public Safety
Telecommunicators Week in 1981. It was observed
only at that agency for three years until 1994 when
Congress made a permanent formal proclamation
for this recognition.
During National Public Safety Telecommunicators
Week, public safety dispatch agencies across the
country will recognize employees for their commit-
ment to the mission of protecting and saving lives
and property. Pinellas County Public Safety Servic-
es/911 is proud to honor all local telecommunica-
tors as well as support personnel for their high level
of professionalism, excellence in customer service
and enthusiastic teamwork. The Pinellas County
911 family encourages all who know or come in
contact with public safety telecommunicators to give
them a much-deserved "thanks."
Visit www.pinellascounty.org/911/rateus911 .htm
and click on the "Rate Us" link to leave your "good
job" sentiments via the online survey.
You can help make the 911 telecommunicator's
job easier by knowing when to call 911, having the
correct address or location where assistance is
needed, listening carefully and calmly answering the
dispatcher's questions.

To report a fire or other situation where life or
property is in danger
To stop a crime in progress or about to occur
To report an accident
For life-threatening medical problems
Do not call 911 for non-emergency situations

100 Homeless Veterans
to receive housing assistance
Another 100 homeless veterans in Pinellas Coun-
ty will receive housing through the HUD-Veterans
Affairs Supportive Housing program announced by
HUD. This recent award to the Pinellas County
Housing Authority brings the total number of home-
less veterans that the agency can assist through the
HUD-VASH program to 280.
"It's a national disgrace that one out of every six
men and women in our shelters once wore a uni-
form to serve our country," said HUD Secretary
Shaun Donovan. "But we know that by providing
housing assistance and case management services,
we can significantly reduce the number of veterans
living on our streets. Working together, HUD, VA
and local housing agencies are making real progress
toward ending veteran homelessness once and for
all."
VA Medical Centers work closely with homeless
veterans then refer them to public housing agencies
for these vouchers, based upon a variety of factors,
most importantly the duration of the homelessness
and the need for longer term more intensive support
to obtain and maintain permanent housing. The
HUD-VASH program includes both the rental assis-
tance the voucher provides and the comprehensive
case management that VAMC staff provides. Veter-
ans participating in the HUD-VASH program rent
privately owned housing and generally contribute


no more than 30 percent of their income toward
rent.
"Our goal is to work with the Bay Pines VAMC to
get homeless veterans in Pinellas County housed in
their own apartment as soon as possible," said
Debra Johnson, PCHA's executive director. As em-
ployment and training are also key elements to end-
ing veteran's homelessness, PCHA stands
committed to working with veterans to coordinate
PCHA's Self-Sufficiency program services and re-
sources to further assist veterans in overcoming the
barriers they experience, and to help them in be-
coming self-sufficient.
To learn more about the HUD-VASH program at
PCHA, please call 443-7684, ext. 3042 or call the
Bay Pines VAMC directly at 398-6661.

County website wins
Sunshine Award
CLEARWATER Pinellas County earned the
Sunny Award for the second consecutive year and
an A-plus transparency grade for the third year.
Sunny Award winners are chosen by Sunshine
Review, which evaluates state and local government
websites nationwide for transparency, citizen en-
gagement and accountability. This year, 214 of the
more than 6,000 government websites ranked by
Sunshine Review earned a Sunny Award.
'The Sunny Awards recognize governments that
are doing an exemplary job proactively disclosing in-
formation to taxpayers," said Michael Barnhart,
president of Sunshine Review. 'There are so many
organizations and associations that highlight what
is wrong with government. We at Sunshine Review
are proud to acknowledge those who are doing it
right and setting a transparency standard."
The Sunshine Review gives the A-plus grade to
government websites that meet the stringent
transparency checklist measuring what content
is available online against what content should
be provided. The checklist includes 10 trans-
parency criteria: budget, meetings, elected offi-
cials, administrative officials, permits and zoning,
audits, contracts, lobbying, public records and
local taxes.

Work in progress on library cooperative agreement


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER The interlocal agreement for the
Pinellas Public Library Cooperative expires Sept. 30,
2013.
Mary Brown, the cooperative's executive director,
provided an update to Pinellas County Commission-
ers on progress made to revise the current agree-
ment during a March 20 work session.
The Cooperative formed in 1989 to give residents
of unincorporated areas access to public libraries.
Member libraries share programs, resources and in
turn receive a share of library tax money paid by
people living in unincorporated areas of the county.
Member libraries include Clearwater, Dunedin,
Gulf Beaches, Gulfport, Largo, Oldsmar, Pinellas
Park, Safety Harbor, St. Petersburg, St. Pete Beach,
Seminole and Tarpon Springs. Palm Harbor Library
also is a member and East Lake participates as a
unit of Palm Harbor's library. Palm Harbor and East
Lake are the only libraries located in unincorporated
areas of the county.
Palm Harbor Library is the only library in the
state funded by Municipal Service Taxing Unit. The
cooperative also is funded by the MSTU.
As a special taxing district, Palm Harbor also re-


ceives money from a tax dedicated to library and
recreational services. East Lake also receives MSTU
money. Libraries in incorporated areas receive
money from their municipality. All have the ability
to apply for state and federal grants.
Brown told commissioners there were a number
of key issues that the committee needed direction
on to move forward on revisions to the agreement.
Much of the discussion revolved around what to
do about East Lake Library. Residents of the unin-
corporated area are unhappy because they pay 21
percent of the MSTU funding going into the coopera-
tive fund and only get back 4 percent.
Nearly 31,000 people live in the East Lake Library
service area. Just over 57,000 live in the Palm Har-
bor Library's area. East Lake's share of the coun-
ty/cooperative funding for the year 2011 was
$378,994. Palm Harbor received $895,615.
Brown said the amount of funding member li-
braries receive from the cooperative is dependent on
it circulation. Shares range from 4 percent to 16
percent for the bigger libraries.
Clearwater received $727,721 from the coopera-
tive in 2011, St. Petersburg, $657,310, Largo
$627,905, Pinellas Park $370,259, Dunedin
292,963, Seminole $185,948, Gulf Beaches


$168,621 and Oldsmar received $170,877.
East Lake wants to stand on its own instead of
being part of Palm Harbor's library. Brown said the
committee is exploring ways to make that happen.
However, changes are required that may not be pop-
ular with all the cooperative's members, she said.
Commissioner Susan Latvala pointed out that
Palm Harbor would lose money if East Lake were no
longer a part of its funding scenario. The coopera-
tive as a whole would lose out if East Lake pulled
out of the cooperative.
Robert Johnson, member of the East Lake Advi-
sory Board, said East Lake needed to become either
an independent taxing district or a dependent tax-
ing district like Palm Harbor. One other solution for
East Lake, and a key action item identified by the
committee, is to make 501(c) (3) organizations eligi-
ble for membership in the library cooperative.
He said whatever was done to allow East Lake to
become a full member of the cooperative needed to
make sure that funding was done properly.
"It's a real balancing act between the member li-
braries and the unincorporated library," Brown
said. "We need to come up with a solution that is a
win-win or we'll all have to lose-lose."
She said if a new interlocal agreement could not


be negotiated, it could mean the "disintegration" of
20 years of progress for the county's library system
as a cooperative.
"Most people view (libraries) as a single system
with one library card," she said. "We're going to
need real compromise on both sides."
Commissioner Karen Seel, who recently em-
barked on a listening tour of all the municipalities,
said there was great interest by cities to make the
situation fair to East Lake. Brown agreed they had
been "very open to discussion."
Brown also talked about possible revisions to
other sections of the agreement, including the fund-
ing mechanism (millage rate), funding formula, dis-
bursement of funds and core standards. The need
for more funding prompted talk about an increase
in the library millage rate.
After discussion, the consensus from the commis-
sioners was that the committee had more work to
do. They also asked for additional information, such
as a breakdown of which member library were serv-
ing areas of unincorporated Pinellas.
Brown agreed to gather information requested by
commissioners and get back with the committee.
"I can at least begin running funding scenarios,"
she said.

Seminole High's Phillips awaits draft to weigh options


Senior center fielder currently hitting .420


By BRAD RCIHARDSON

SEMINOLE For Seminole baseball standout
Brett Phillips, the future remains unwritten as the
sport paves a path toward either college or poten-
tially the major leagues.
Donning the No. 8 jersey and playing center
field, Phillips, a senior, has been a major contribu-
tor for the Warhawks this season with a .420 bat-
ting average, a .740 slugging percentage, 21 runs
and 11 RBIs. He is part of the core outfield that
has helped Seminole maintain the top spot in the
Class 7A-District 10 standings.
But long before he became a fast center fielder,
Phillips was trying to find a sport that fit his niche.
He received push and guidance from both his par-
ents, Jodi and Brett James, to try T-ball at Semi-
nole Youth Athletic Association at age 5. When he
started playing, he wasn't the best fielder or hitter,
but he could definitely run fast and put the ball
into play.
"I would like to think in my head that I was the
short kid but with the biggest ego on the field,"
said Phillips jokingly. "But a lot of people told me
and my parents that I had potential so that drove
me to keep playing."
Eventually he moved his way into playing in Lit-
tle League and playing in Junior and Senior
leagues. In addition to playing baseball, he played
soccer, football and even hockey. According to
Phillips, even though he had a passion for those
games, he said baseball came as the easiest sport
to learn and pick up.
"My goal was to win at every other sport that I
played," he said. "It might have been easy for me
but it doesn't mean I was good at it. I just had to
realize that I had the talent to play."
His Little League career soon got competitive
when he received a call from Randy Kotchman to
join his AAU travel team, the Little Smokers. AAU
played a pivotal role throughout elementary and
middle school when Rick Stegbauer asked Phillips
to try out for a team he was putting together called
the Tampa Bay Blue Devils. During those forma-
tive years, Stegbauer became one of the coaches
that would mold Phillips as a ballplayer.
"Coach Rick has been the best coach that I have
ever played for," said Phillips. "He helped me to not
just grow as a baseball player, but into the guy I
am now. Parts of my character definitely came


from him and he definitely helped shape my life by
pushing me to give 110 percent every time I
played."
By the time he got to high school, he was ready
to tryout for the Warhawks' baseball team. As a
freshman and a bit diminutive at 5-foot, 6-inches
tall, Phillips knew that his starting time on the
field would be limited, but just the feeling of mak-
ing the team was worth it.
"Seminole is definitely known from its baseball
program," he said. "As a freshman to make the
team you should take pride in knowing that you
are not only a player when you make the team,
but know everyone is watching you as you carry
yourself during practices and games."
When his sophomore year came around, he
grew to 6 feet and began to hit the weight room to
try and improve his strength. He finally began to
be noticed during the 2010 Steve Georgiadis Me-
morial Baseball Tournament when he was starting
every game in center field and had his first home-
run ever in high school.
A year later, everything began to change for him.
Colleges began coming to games and talked to him
about his future and how baseball would be there.
During that time, he got offers from Mississippi
State, Boston College and the University of Florida,
before settling on North Carolina State in early
November.
"I take academics seriously," Phillips said. "I
have a 3.2 GPA and I carry out my business in the
classroom. To play baseball in college is big and
that was a milestone for me and committing to a
college was a hard decision. But if anyone has that
opportunity, take full pride in that experience
cause its awesome."
During the summer of 2011, Phillips was invited
to the Perfect Game Showcase in Fort Myers where
over 120 pro scouts watched the top baseball
prospects in the country. One of Phillips' high-
lights featured him throwing the ball from right
field to third base at a speed of 96 mph. According
to Phillips, it definitely raised some eyebrows.
Although he is signed with N.C. State, a possible
future in the major leagues has not been ruled
out. Throughout the current season, over 40
scouts from 28 of the 30 major league teams have
come to practices and games to see him hit and
field.
"At first it was nerve racking," Phillips said. "I

mean, imagine four or five teams just standing
there and watching you take batting practice and
then you have to shake their hands and they tell
you what teams they are from. I just make the
best out of it now cause at that moment its my
time to shine."
Phillips saw major changes within his senior
year. He played varsity football as a linebacker and
running back. Also with new Head Coach Jeffery
Pincus and being awarded a co-captain position
with Jordan Doyle, he had to be a team leader and
keep the team close-knit and work well together.
'This team is a family. We always preach it," he
said. "To be strong off the field makes a strong
team on the field. In past years, there has been a
great amount of selfishness where one person is
trying to carry the team. This year it's the entire
team trying to win a game and not single anyone


out."
Pincus said Phillips is a unique individual. He
carries himself in a way that both motivates the
team.
"He has brought everything you would expect
from a senior leader," said Pincus. He is just an
all-around great young man who is always laugh-
ing and enjoying life. He has evolved as he has
grown into his role and to see the metamorphosis
of him into what he has become over the past four
years has just been extraordinary."
After winning the 21st annual Steve Georgiadis
Memorial Baseball Tournament, Seminole contin-
ues toward its goal of winning the district champi-
onship. Their next home game is against East
Lake on Friday, April 13.

Business as usual at Gators


New owners don't have plans now for rumored resort hotel


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND It will be business as usual at Gators
Cafe and Saloon at John's Pass for now.
That's the message Sid Rice of Rice Family Holdings and Jay
Madhu, president of the real estate division of HCI Holdings
LLC, expressed April 4 following the sale two days earlier of
close to 11 acres.
The $8.1 million purchase by HCI Holdings includes Gators,
12754 Kingfish Drive, and John's Pass Marina on the east side
of Gulf Boulevard, as well as a 2.2-acre tract on the beach side
where a restaurant and cabanas were proposed a year ago.
The 8.4 acres on the east side of Gulf Boulevard has long
been rumored as a possible site for a resort hotel but Rice and
Madhu both said there are no immediate plans for such a proj-
ect.
"I'm going to continue as King Gator (running Gators Cafe),"
said Rice. "I know where all the poles and pilings are at."
'We're coming into this as an opportunity to acquire proper-
ty," said Madhu. 'That's how we see this property. The potential
is tremendous."
Madhu said there are no plans for developing the site at this
time.
'We plan to improve the property," he said. "We'll target ineffi-


ciencies we would like to improve."
"Change is good and we're looking forward to it," said Rice. "It
will be a smooth transition. We'll keep the entire staff and move
forward."
Madhu didn't rule out the possibility of his company selling
the site to a developer at some point but said there is no current
plan to do so. At the same time, he spoke highly of the unique
qualities of the site.
"It's a destination," Madhu said. "It's somewhere a family can
come. You can go to the beach or go to a marina and go fishing
or sailing. Or you can go to a restaurant. Few properties have
all those elements. It's a very unique piece of property."
Madhu said the deal came together in about 45 days.
'They saw what they liked," said Rice, "and we saw what we
liked."
HCI Holdings is a subsidiary of Homeowners Choice, a
Tampa-based property and casualty insurance company.
Another Homeowners Choice subsidiary, TV Investment
Holdings LLC, purchased the Tierra Verde Marina last April for
$5.1 million.
The Gators sale ends an era of property ownership at John's
Pass that dates back to the 1940s when Sid's father, Charlie
Rice, built the area into a commercial fishing and tourist area,
which was anchored by the Kingfisher Restaurant.

REUNION, from page 1A


Club which met there monthly and supported the
community in many ways. In its later years it is still
in use by Boy Scout troops, Alcoholics Anonymous,
and other organizations.
Another large family group attending were the de-
scendants of John Archibald Campbell. John's
granddaughter, Marilyn Johnson Mohney, is the
daughter of Marjorie Campbell Johnson and Jesse
Johnson, who owned the well-remembered Semi-
nole Nurseries, started the first bank in Seminole,
and developed the Seminole Mall. Jesse was hon-
orary mayor when the City of Seminole was formed
and was the first Mr. Seminole. Marilyn's husband
Eugene is the family's other surviving World War II
veteran.
Grandchildren of Lena Campbell Mixon came to
the reunion from as far away as Tallahassee.
Annie Campbell Grable's family was represented
by her daughter Virginia Grable Brown's son Tom
Brown and his family, who all reside in Seminole.
Clara Campbell Tyler was represented by her
granddaughter, Clara Sue Blaser of Seminole, and
members of her family who reside in Clearwater, as
well as great-grandson Chris Reese and his son


Logan of Seminole.
While many Campbell descendants reside in or
near Seminole, the family has scattered across
America. Marjorie Johnson's sister Doris married
and moved to Oklahama; her large family lives
there. Audrey Tyler Ploor's marriage to a military
man took her to many places, ending in Indiana,
where their children still reside. John Campbell's
son John Alton settled in Pennsylvania and raised
his family there.
Benjamin Franklin Campbell died in 1902. Mar-
garet Ann Taylor Campbell died in 1927.
Sadly, the Campbell family name is disappearing.
Only John Alton Campbell and his two sons still
have the Campbell family name. Many, of course,
have Campbell as their first or middle name.
Regardless, the Campbell name and spirit unite
this large family. They plan to continue their annual
gatherings well into the future.

supports the system," Miller said. "The tax swap
bill was a legislative initiative that we believed
would have given PSTA an option to effectively
manage that public investment. While the Gov-
ernor disagreed, PSTA will remain focused on
doing our job: to manage a successful system
for Pinellas County while continuing to explore
all transportation investment options."
Opponents of the surtax most likely are
pleased by Scott's move.
David McKalip of St. Petersburg told Pinellas
County Commissioners March 27 that residents
don't want to pay a penny tax for light rail. He
said the tax swap would mean PSTA would col-
lect about $120 million a year compared to the
$30 million it receives now. He said PSTA had a
history of wasting money.
"We don't need light rail or rapid response
buses," he said. "We need a good bus system."
He said rail systems throughout the country
had low ridership and were not successful. He
said any change in funding for PSTA should be
cost neutral to provide the same level of funding.
"It doesn't help the poor to put another penny
tax," he said. "It takes the money out of the
economy."
About a dozen speakers spoke before the com-
mission voicing opposition to plans for light rail
in Pinellas and the tax swap for a variety of rea-
sons. One was the cost.
"This is too much burden to put on our
grandchildren," said Connie Fitzgerald.
Betsy Burgess said not enough people used
the buses to justify more funding. She said
even at peak times, many ran with few or no
riders.


mediator and political party activist.
"One of the biggest thrills over the years was
speaking from the floor of the Southern Sudan
Parliament to the Vice President of Sudan, Mem-
bers of Parliament and state legislators," said
Waters.
Waters said she applauds both the St. Peters-
burg Chamber of Commerce and the Greater
Largo Chamber, who awarded Waters "The In-
spire Award" in 2010, for recognizing women in
various leadership roles throughout the commu-
nity, the state, country and worldwide.
She reminds people of the importance of U.S.
involvement in helping to strengthen and stabi-
lize evolving democracies. Increased economic de-
velopment, trade and commerce, and job
opportunities, follows the advent of people's free-
dom and fortitude in order to help determine
their own destiny, she said.

"When I'm out protesting (light rail), I see a lot
of buses," she said.
Opponents say only 3 percent of the county's
population ride the bus.
Bob Lasher, manager of PSTA Community Re-
lations, said in an April 6 email that 3 percent is
a conservative estimate based on regular daily
riders. He said PSTA studies show that 36 per-
cent of county residents have used PSTA.
"What's more, after three years of service re-
ductions and all-time (four consecutive months)
record ridership, our undersized agency is actu-
ally running into capacity issues on many
routes, especially during rush hour," Lasher
said. "We even have several that are standing
room only at lunch."
Only two people spoke in support of light rail
and a new tax. David Babb of Seminole said he
came from school at Gainesville to tell commis-
sioners his vision for the county's future.
"Cars are not the choice, or suburbs or inter-
states," he said.
He talked about the county's growth, saying,
"Density does not have to be congestion."
Light rail would mean fewer cars on the roads.
He said a plan for the future needed to include
the ability to walk and bike to destinations.
He said senior citizens should want an im-
proved transit system.
He also said Florida has the lowest tax rate in
the union.
"We can afford to pay more tax," he said.
According to 2009 figures from the National
Transit Database, Pinellas County spends less
than the average of service areas with a popula-
tion between 500,000 to 1 million residents. The
average is $99.77 per capital. PSTA spends
$62.58.

Police beat


Fight results in 2 arrests
TREASURE ISLAND -Two Hillsborough County
residents were arrested and charged with simple
battery following a fight April 1 at Ricky Ts, 10601
Gulf Blvd.
Police responded to the scene about 11:05 p.m.
where they found 41-year-old Lisa Ann Vanvaeren-
bergh, 134 Woodknoll Place, Valrico, and 52-year-
old Robert Gregg Lytle, 5514 Keeler Oak St., Lithia,
fighting with a 51-year-old couple from St. Cloud.
Vanvaerenbergh and Lytle were transported to
Pinellas County Jail where they were charged with
simple battery.
Both were later released after posting $500
bond.

Two injured in accident
LARGO Two Dunedin residents injured in an
accident April 3 at about 3 a.m. at Ulmerton Road
and 66th Street were not wearing seatbelts. One of
the victims is Michael Edward Graziano, 24, the
brother of John Graziano, who was critically in-
jured in a 2007 crash riding in a vehicle with Nick
Bollea, the son of wrestler Hulk Hogan.
In the April 3 accident, a 1994 Volvo SW driven
by Cameron Richard Bosley, 24, was traveling at a
high rate of speed westbound in the center lane of
Ulmerton Road approaching 66th Street.
A dump truck driven by Steven Edward Brady,
57, of Lakeland was traveling westbound in the
center lane of Ulmerton Road in the intersection of
66th Street. The Volvo collided into the rear of the
dump truck. Both vehicles came to rest within the
intersection resulting in a road closure until 4:30
a.m., Florida Highway Patrol reports said.
Both Bosley and Graziano, who were not wear-
ing seatbelts, were taken to Bayfront Medical Cen-
ter. Bosley was in serious condition. Graziano was
in critical condition. Brady was not injured, the
FHP said.
The Volvo received $10,000 in damage. The
dump truck had $4,000 in damage.
Alcohol was not involved, reports said.
The investigation continues.

Man arrested on
outstanding warrant
TREASURE ISLAND A 21-year-old Pasco
County man who was fishing off a dock behind
Publix, 111 104th Ave., was arrested by police on
an outstanding warrant following a routine identifi-
cation check.
Codey Allen Carter of 6239 Saddletree Drive,
Wesley Chapel, was fishing with two friends on
March 19 at 2:11 a.m. A check of Carter's ID re-
vealed a Pasco warrant for violation of parole on a
charge of driving with a suspended license.
Carter was taken to Pinellas County Jail where
he was later released.
The other two persons he was fishing with were
not arrested.

Lawn equipment
taken from shed
TREASURE ISLAND Police are investigating the
theft of lawn equipment March 21 from a storage
room at 8540 W. Gulf Blvd.
According to a police report, the owners of the
shed lost $125 worth of equipment.
Among the items stolen were a Homelite electric


chainsaw and a Toro electric blower.
Man arrested for stalking child
NEW PORT RICHEY Pinellas County sheriffs
detectives arrested a New Port Richey man about
10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 5, for aggravated stalk-
ing of a child.
Detectives with the Crimes Against Children unit
say David K. Wagner, 25, met a 15-year-old girl,
who lives in Pinellas County on a social networking
website in August 2011. He established an online
friendship with her and convinced her to send him
a nude photo of herself from the waist up.
After he received her photo, he threatened to
send the photo to her family and friends if she did
not meet with him and engage in a sexual relation-
ship. The girl went to her mother and told her
about the threat. The mother reported the incident
to the sheriffs office on March 28.
Detectives posed as the victim and continued the
online communication with the suspect. Wagner
communicated sexually explicit messages about
what he wanted to do believing he was talking to
the 15-year-old victim. Eventually the suspect ar-
ranged for the victim to meet with him to have sex.
Instead, he was met by CAC detectives who arrest-
ed him for one count of aggravated stalking of a
child, one count of certain use of computer servic-
es prohibited and traveling to meet a minor.
Also, based on information gained through their
investigation CAC detectives believe Wagner may
have other victim's. They are asking anyone with
information about David Wagner to please contact
the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Crimes Against
Children Unit at 727-582-6200.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is a member
of the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Chil-
dren Task Force.

Vehicle crashes into restaurant
DUNEDIN The China Star restaurant on Patri-
cia Avenue in Dunedin sustained significant struc-
tural damage when an 80-year-old woman drove
into its storefront about 3:40 p.m. April 3.
According to a report from the Pinellas County
Sheriffs Office, Phyllis Glynn of Dunedin was
pulling into a parking space in front of the China
Star when she mistakenly hit the gas instead of the
brake and crashed into the restaurant. Deputies
said the vehicle traveled "a ways" into the business
before hitting a counter, where the vehicle came to
a stop. Glynn was transported to Mease Dunedin
Hospital as a precaution.
A 64-year-old man and 62-year-old woman, who
were eating at the time of the crash, also were
taken by ambulance to Mease Dunedin for treat-
ment of minor injuries after being "grazed by a fly-
ing plant," the report said.

Child drowns in pool
CLEARWATER Clearwater Police are investigat-
ing the drowning of a child on the 1700 block of
Thames Street, according to a police Facebook up-
date.
According to a preliminary investigation, the
child slipped out of sight. When her mother real-
ized she was missing, she searched and found the
daughter in the backyard pool.
The mother pulled the unresponsive child out of
the pool and called 911. The child was taken to
Morton Plant Hospital where she died. The call
came in at 5:21 p.m. on March 27.

Billboard campaign sends


a message about pill mills


Since April 1, motorists and pedestrians in Pinel-
las County have been met with an anti-prescription
drug abuse message on billboards in the county.
'We're shutting down pill mills in Pinellas Coun-
ty" is the message on the billboards, and it repre-
sents the unified mission statement from the
coalition groups involved in the initiative.
For the calendar year 2010, Pinellas led all coun-
ties in the state of Florida with 249 accidental over-
dose deaths from prescription drugs.
During 2010 and 2011, government agencies, law
enforcement organizations, mental health and sub-
stance abuse prevention program providers and
community partners joined together in undertaking
aggressive initiatives aimed at reducing the number
of deaths associated with prescription drug abuse.
Although a final report is not yet available for
2011, early indications report a reduction in the
number of prescription drug overdose deaths. It has
been a united fight, with many agencies in Pinellas
County working together.
"Pinellas County's high-prescriber ordinance is
used to regulate facilities and identify doctors who
prescribe large quantities of prescription narcotics,"
said Paul Melton, an investigator with the Pinellas
County Department of Justice and Consumer Serv-
ices. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office identifies


and investigates doctor shopping and other pre-
scription drug crimes and the Department of Health
investigates doctors and clinics where prescribing
violations and standards of care issues might occur.
These are examples of how different agencies have
come together as a united front to battle this prob-
lem."
Melton also recognizes significant contributions
made by community partners.
'The key to reaching addicted individuals comes
long before they get involved in the criminal justice
system," he said. "Organizations like NOPE, Nar-
cotics Overdose Prevention Education, and LiveFree!
work tirelessly to educate our young about the dan-
gers of drug addiction and empower them to hold
each other accountable and get help if needed."
Other community partners, such as Operation
PAR, are instrumental in providing substance abuse
counseling for those already caught up in the cycle.
The kickoff to the campaign was April 1, when the
first billboard was erected at 1945 Sunset Point
Road in Clearwater, between Hercules and Keene
Road on the south side. The second is located on
Gandy Boulevard just east of San Martin Boulevard
in Pinellas Park. Several smaller boards will be put
up in the coming weeks, with more planned for the
future.

be considered endemic. There are three remaining endemic countries Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Nigeria. Accompanying Lilo on the trip from the Seminole Lake Rotary Club were Wayne Reynolds and

Job fair set at St. Pete College
SEMINOLE A job fair is planned at the Semi-
nole campus of St. Petersburg College on Friday,
April 20, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the conference center
of the campus library, 9200 113th St.
Dress is business casual. Those attending should
bring plenty of resumes and personal business
cards.
The event is sponsored by State Rep. Larry Ahern
(R-St. Petersburg) and State Rep. Jim Frishe (R-St.
Petersburg).

Pet fair seeks vendors, sponsors
SEMINOLE The third annual Loving Care Pet
Fair will take place Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 4
p.m., at the Treasure Island Fun Center, 7770
Seminole Blvd.
Vendors and sponsors are needed to help deliver
the message that "pet adoption is the best option."
"We're here to educate the public about proper
pet care, aid in the adoption of great pets to forever
homes, and raise needed funds for local rescue or-
ganizations," said Nancy Barry, Pet Fair organizer
and founder of Leash on Life Pet & People Services,
in a press release.
This year's beneficiaries are Husky Haven, Dal-
matian Rescue of Tampa Bay and Pinellas County
Animal Services.
While the Loving Care Pet Fair will feature up to
25 pet rescue and shelter organizations, Barry said
its success relies on vendor and sponsor participa-
tion.
Vendor opportunities for pet-related businesses
like grooming services, gourmet pet treats, pet bou-
tique products, and pet training services are com-
plemented by exhibits by non-pet-centered
businesses that want to reach the ever-growing
customer base of pet owners.
'We welcome bookkeeping and accounting serv-
ices, book stores, jewelry retailers, house cleaning
services, automotive repair shops, hair stylists and
barbers, green businesses, candy and ice cream
shops if people need a product or service," said
Barry, "we have a place for it at the Loving Care Pet
Fair."
The fair has a full day of scheduled events, in-
cluding demonstrations by K-9 and mounted police
units, contests, prize drawings, music and refresh-
ments. Radio Disney will entertain from 11 a.m. to
1 p.m.

Memorial to lost fishermen to be
dedicated at John's Pass Village
MADEIRA BEACH The Outdoor Arts Founda-
tion will dedicate the Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea
Memorial Sunday, April 29, 6 to 9 p.m., at John's
Pass Village.
The unveiling will take place at sunset in front of
the bell tower and main entrance to the John's Pass
Boardwalk.
The memorial will be installed and dedicated to
the hundreds of area fishermen who have lost their
lives over the years.
Festivities will include music by SunzaBeaches,
speeches by survivors, loved ones, leaders in the
fishing community and a blessing by Church By
The Sea.
The Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea Memorial has
been a joint effort between the John's Pass Village
and Boardwalk Merchant's Association, the Out-
door Arts Foundation and artist Robert Bruce Ep-
stein.
"Many lives are lost every year with no memory
for future generations to see and appreciate the ul-
timate price paid by these brave individuals," said
Mark Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina. "Our own cen-
tral west Florida fishermen deserve proper repre-
sentation."
Hubbard said a fund-raising campaign to build a
fitting memorial to the fishermen is almost at its
end.
"Our goal for the Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea
memorial was $50,000 and as of early March, a
total of more than $40,000 has been collected," he
said.
Profits from the annual John's Pass Seafood Fes-
tival and John Levique Pirate Days Festival at JPV
have contributed.
To complement the memorial, a website has been
set up dedicated both to Central West Coast Florida
fishermen who were lost at sea and to other devot-
ed fishermen who have played important roles in
the area's sport and commercial fishing industries.
Additionally, a special information page for lost
fishermen is available for anyone to supply details
about a fisherman not currently listed on the me-
morial site.
Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea is a not-for-profit
organization with all donations tax-deductible
through the Outdoor Arts Foundation.

Organizers of the Breakfast with the Easter Bunny March 31 at Beef'O'Bradys, 13847 Walsingham
Road, Largo, termed the event a huge success, serving over 130 breakfasts. In addition, the Easter
Bunny had his picture taken with over 50 children. The event raised much-needed funds for the
American Cancer Society and Relay For Life of Seminole. In the Friends Fighting Back crew, from left,

The Seminole Lake Rotary Club conducted its first Easter Bunny Breakfast April 7 at the Seminole
Recreation Center, which attracted nearly 200 children and adults. Following a feast of pancakes and
sausage, the Easter Bunny showed up and an Easter egg hunt followed. Event organizer Jessica Petot
said the idea behind the breakfast was not to make money but to provide the community with a fun
project, at low cost, in which children and adults could be participants. Doe-Does Restaurant donated
the food. From left are Marc Petot, The Easter Bunny, Kennedy and Jessica Petot.

Heat is too often a killer of family pets


Spring and summer bring ele-
vated outside temperatures
which can be life threatening to
people and their pets. Every year
hundreds of pets die because
they are left in parked cars, teth-
ered outside without shade and
water, or exercised in hot, humid
weather. Heat stroke is a serious
threat in Florida.
Brachycephalic (short nosed)
breeds (Pug, Boston Terrier, Bull-
dog, Pekingese, and Lhasa Apso)
can be more susceptible to heat
stroke because panting in these
breeds is less effective in de-
creasing body temperature com-
pared to others. Young dogs that
overexert themselves and older
dogs with pre-existing diseases
are also vulnerable. Dogs have
sweat glands only on their feet so
sweating will not cool them like it
does for us.
A normal temperature in a dog
or cat is around 101.5 degrees
plus or minus 1-2 degrees. It is
considered an emergency when a


Speaking of Pets
Kim Donovan, D.V.M.


.Fr A
dog or cat's temperature rises
above 105 degrees. Extremely el-
evated body temperatures can


cause multi-systemic organ fail-
ure leading to death.
Symptoms of heat stroke in-
clude restlessness, 1 '!!1.. ex-
cessive drooling, unsteadiness,
bright red gums, muscle tremors,
seizures, difficulty .!. ,ii, i.-. in-
creased heart rate, bloody vomit
or feces, shock, cardiac arrest,
and/or behavior changes.
If your pet is showing these
signs, remove your pet from the
heat source. It would make per-
fect sense to use ice-cold water
to decrease core body tempera-
ture; however emerging a dog
that is suffering from heat stroke
in an ice-cold bath could cause
serious complications. This may
cause constriction of the blood
vessels in the skin, which will
trap heat inside the body. Tap
water (room temperature on
slightly cool) is recommended in
order to cool a heat stroke vic-
tim. The goal is to decrease the
body temperature to about 103
degrees. If your dog has heat


stroke, it is important that you
do not leave him/her unattended
for at least 24 hours. Take your
pet to a veterinarian immediately
to be monitored for serious com-
plications. Some of the symp-
toms noted above may not occur
until later in the day.
Leaving pets in a car to run a
quick errand can be deadly as
temperatures in a parked car
may increase by 40 degrees with-
in one hour. Even on a relatively
cool day (70 degrees) dogs have
perished when left in a parked
car. Cracking a window will not
make a difference even if the car
is parked in the shade.
If you love your pet enough to
take them with you, then love
them enough to never leave them
in a car with the ignition off.

sociate veterinarian and medical
director at Oakhurst Veterinary
Hospital in Seminole with 14

Global Spectrum
to manage Sun Dome

completion in May, the University of South Florida has selected Global
Spectrum, the worldwide leader in managing university arenas and
stadiums, to operate the Sun Dome Arena in Tampa.
Global Spectrum, a subsidiary of the internationally recognized
sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectacor, named Trent Mer-

complete reconfiguration of the approximately 10,000 seat bowl area to
oval seating, adding a state-of-the art center-hung LED scoreboard,
adding additional concessions and restrooms on the concourse level,
modifying and enhancing the southeast and southwest entries, and
restoration of existing exterior concrete, and other cosmetic improve-
ments.
The project also will include the creation of a hospitality and viewing
club area, and 10 loge boxes with a total capacity of 60 seats to be sold
by the USF Athletics Department.
Among the many university buildings Global Spectrum manages are
the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami, the Colonial Life
Arena at the University of South Carolina, the Ryan Center at the Uni-
versity of Rhode Island, and the Chaifetz Arena at Saint Louis Univer-
sity.

Drill carefully,


but keep drilling

My son Patrick just spent nine days with me here in the United
Arab Emirates. He arrived with a decent understanding of the place
but he was surprised by the big cities Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
He had expected them to be more like Miami or Tampa or Orlan-
do, real cities despite the theme parks and gated communities. But
Abu Dhabi and Dubai are more like glitzy construction sites. You
can see construction cranes no
matter where you cast your '
eyes.
The oil-and-gas countries of I' 'I
the Middle East are under con- ( I .
struction. The UAE is sitting on
8 percent of the world's oil and
it will last for roughly 100 years.
It has one of the highest per capital incomes in the world. Money is
gushing out of the ground.
I'm happy for all folks here in the UAE and their friends in Saudi
Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait.
But I also was happy to read in the New York Times the other day
that the United States is drilling and cracking its way to energy inde-
pendence. We're drilling more and driving less. We're buying lots of
new cars that travel farther on a gallon of gas and we're yanking oil
and gas out of wells that had once been deemed dry.
I know you're paying $4 per gallon for gas, but if it frees your kids
from dependence on the Middle East or any other volatile region in
the world, pay with a smile.
After almost two years of editing stories about this region, I'm
more convinced than ever that the United States would make more
friends over here if it sent fewer soldiers and more celebrities to
charm the people here. Our movies, rap music and fast food seem to
have more influence than our jets and drones.
The passions and politics over here are complex. We can't plant
democracy in much of this soil despite our good intentions. We can't
assure the aspirations of all the Arab women who chaff under the
strictures of their culture. We can't match the good will that the
Muslim Brotherhood's charity work has generated among poor Mus-
lims in the region.
We have tried because we believe in our way of life. But we've also
wanted to make sure there's gas in those Exxon station pumps
down the street. We've needed foreign oil to maintain our lifestyle for
decades now and that's required us to crawl into bed with some
questionable characters.
Our diplomats could accomplish far more good here if they did
not have to be obsessed with keeping the Strait of Hormuz open. We
could make more principled decisions if we didn't have to go plead
with the Saudi royal family to pump more oil to offset supply lost
when Libya erupts into civil war or Iran struggles under sanctions.
I applaud the people in the State Department. They have made us
lots of important friends in this part of the world, but we've paid a
moral price from time to time.
It would be great if our kids did not have to play the unsavory
games you need to play over here to keep the oil and gas flowing.
Drill carefully, USA, but keep drilling. And keep buying all those
high-mileage new cars.

'Live and let live'
Re: "On the enmity toward Tebow," Lloyd Brown's column, April
5
Editor:
Lloyd Brown's column defending Tim Tebow from supposed "crit-
ics" wasn't really about Tim Tebow at all. People of all religions or
no religion admire and cheer for excellence in sports. The col-
umn was just an excuse to vilify a whole boatload of people Mr.
Brown seems to hate. He lashed out viciously, and without any
reasoning, at doctors, mothers who chose abortion (apparently for
any reason), atheists, people who believe the Constitution includes
the First Amendment (which, by the way, is not a "myth," Mr.
Brown), Whitney Houston, and finally, "progress" and the entire
21st century! It has always puzzled me how people who proclaim
that they are religious, are lovers and followers of Jesus have such
a hard time remembering his teachings of love and acceptance for
all. To those like Mr. Brown who seem to want to exclude those
who believe differently, I ask: do you want to turn this country into
a theocracy? I suggest they look around the world and examine the
theocracies that already exist. Remember that the ruling clergy just
might not turn out to be from your own religious persuasion. Then
maybe "live and let live" and "love thy neighbor" ain't such a bad
idea after all, eh?

A real hero
Re: "On enmity toward Tebow," Lloyd Brown's column, April 5
Editor:
I hope you speak for many. In a country where the majority, it is
said, believe in God, the enmity toward Tim Tebow is not under-
standable. We are told we will be persecuted for our beliefs but
surely not in America? Worldwide the persecution goes on daily.
Thank God for a real hero if only in times past.

The beauty of the Biltmore
Re: "Save the Biltmore? Why," Steve Schell, March 15.
Editor:
Steve Schell has obviously never been to the Belleview Biltmore
Hotel. When it opens, again he should be sure to come!
The White Queen of the Gulf has been my next-door neighbor for
50 years. Built with yellow pine, the bones of the building are very
strong. To restore the building and update the rooms is something
that can be done. It will be an historic building with modern day
conveniences that will attract business. My town, county, and state
will all benefit from the taxes it generates.
People cannot come in to see the hotel today because its 25 acres
are surrounded by construction fencing. And, it is in the middle of
an RPD. For today, the only nonresidents allowed on the property
are visiting the residents that live there or going to the country
club.
Be sure to come when the preservation is finished and enjoy fine
dining, historical restoration, and the beauty of the interior and ex-
terior of the building.

Thanks to Gov. Scott for veto
Editor:
Please take a minute to thank Gov. Rick Scott for his veto of
House Bill 865, the so-called tax swap bill to be used for light rail in
Pinellas County. This would have provided rail service between St.


Petersburg and Clearwater. The veto will save taxpayers money for a
project with little or no chance for success.
Gov. Rick Scott's e-mail address is: rick.scott@eog.myflorida.com.
Don't forget the dot between "rick" and "scott."
In addition, thanks should go to Barbara Haselden, organizer of
the South Pinellas 912 Patriots, and her group, for organizing the
"No Tax For Tracks" effort and encouraging our residents to write or
email Governor Scott and ask that he veto HB865.

Promises of self-improvement books


A friend recently steered me to a new (to
me) self-improvement author, whose writ-
ings I'll explore to see if they can kick-start
me toward greatness, a realm that has al-
ways eluded me. The writer is Esther Hicks.
With her late husband Jerry, she has pro-
duced several best-selling books based on
the idea that a person's fate is mostly deter-
mined by his/her thinking. That's not a rev-
olutionary idea, but who cares, if it works?
Possibly the oldest and best-known advice
book is the Holy Bible. Along with fables,
war stories, genealogy ("Ahab begat
Ephraim, who begat Clarence" etc.), soap
operas and Mideast history, the Bible con-
tains yards of instructions on how to stay
out of trouble and find happiness. As a
youth of 10 or so, I spent many an hour
studying Proverbs. It imbued me with the
wisdom of not becoming a lazy bum ("Go the
ant, thou sluggard, and be wise") and of
avoiding "strange" women, i.e., vamps, hook-
ers, and females who smoked. I've sort of fol-
lowed that counsel most of my life, with
mixed results.
For several years I read the literature of
the Unity Church, and liked it. Its basis is
Christianity, the inclusive, accepting variety
that welcomes all comers and their wide-
ranging beliefs. It's part of the New Thought
movement, which emphasizes positive think-
ing in all areas of life, not just religion. Unity
is the opposite of the belief systems that
claim to have the absolute last word on what
is right or wrong. Of course, such open-
mindedness will earn the distrust of the
thou-shalt not denominations whose beliefs
are carved in unyielding stone.
My next and final foray into the forests of
personal uplift was A Course in Miracles
(ACIM), a New Age program purporting to
contain the thoughts of Jesus Christ as
channeled through a woman named Helen
Schucman. I found the Course's basic
premise preposterous, but the writing -
which emphasizes the power of forgiveness


Driver's Seat
li 1 ) I i\ ,-!


I'm embarrassed to tell
you how many writing
instruction books are
sitting on my
shelves. Some are dog-
eared with use; others I've
barely opened.

- is beautiful. Two million copies of ACIM
have been printed in 16 languages. In the
1980s several groups of ACIM adherents
could be found in Pinellas County, but I
have no knowledge that they still meet. Is
there a self-improvement gene in most peo-
ple? Are we programmed to try to make
ourselves better, wiser, more skillful and
loving? I find myself asking such questions
as I witness the never-ending stream of
self-help books, workshops and TV pro-
grams devoted to transforming you and me
into better versions of ourselves. I'm sure
these efforts are helpful to a percentage of
people who enroll, but I think that most
people are not easily changed by being ex-
posed to the teachings of Tony Robbins,
Wayne Dyer and other self-help gurus. By
the time we reach age 15 or so, our charac-
ters and personalities have jelled into the
fundamental form they'll possess for years
to come. Most change is slow, and often
painful. It comes with the passage of time,
rather than with self-resolve or the reading


of books.
For me, the exception to that dictum came
one day in 1966 when I ran across "The
Common Sense of Drinking," published in
1931 by a New Englander named Richard
Peabody. The book, which describes alco-
holism and alcoholics, greatly influenced the
founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. It also
spoke large truths to me, and caused an im-
mediate and radical shift in my behavior,
one that continues to this day.
Along with self-improvement and spiritual
uplift, few other human endeavors has in-
spired more instruction books than writing.
Civil engineering and brain surgery are just
as important as writing, but when is the last
time you heard of a best-seller telling the
buyer how to design a bridge or treat a rusty
medulla oblongata? Each year the maga-
zines and publishing houses crank out mil-
lions of instructional words devoted to better
writing and (it is hoped) getting the finished
products printed and sold. Do these "how to
write" advisories achieve the desired end re-
sult? I'm sure they do, for a small fraction of
actual or wannabe writers.
I'm embarrassed to tell you how many
writing instruction books are sitting on my
shelves. Some are dog-eared with use; oth-
ers I've barely opened. I don't know if any of
them have improved my writing. The books
I've really needed are the ones that tell a

A letter to my bank


As corporate entity granted
personhood by the U.S. govern-
ment, I believe I can direct this
letter to you personally, in the
perhaps futile hope that you will
hear my complaints and care.
For my own pride as a human
being and an American citizen -
neither of which you are I
chose to not dwell on the reality
that as a single customer with
few assets, I carry little chance of
swaying your policies or deci-
sions. Nor will I linger on the
ironic fact that, given recent judi-
cial decisions, I also carry less fi-
nancial sway in the political
sector than you could potentially
wield.
To start, you should know that
I did not choose you as my bank.
I had been very pleased with the
service I received at my former
bank and was disheartened to
hear that the company I had
grown to appreciate was to be
consumed by another entity.
However, despite my misgivings
and confronted with the incon-
venience of switching banks, I


SIronic
entameter
SJuliana A. Torres

decided to give you a chance. I
figured that you might offer some
advantages, if for no other reason
than the fact that my former
bank fell apart in the end, while
you did not.
However, after about two years
of ups and downs, I have come to
the conclusion that you don't
care about me very much. I
sense that you don't like me, and
would rather be rid of me. Admit-
tedly, I don't offer you much
other than the relatively small
amount of funds that flow
through my various accounts
each month and some credit
card interest payments (though
the disparity between the 20 per-
cent interest you demand and
the .01 percent you offer for my
savings should be criminal).
But I am still a person, bank.

- I'm leaving you


You can't spring new fees on me
and expect me not to notice. You
shouldn't limit the amount of
times I can move money around
or discriminate against me be-
cause I have less of it in my ac-
counts. Why should I pay you
more to do nothing different than
I have been doing for years? Your
lack of common-sense customer
care and blatant displeasure for
small-bit customers like me is
demoralizing, and I don't intend
to put up with it any longer.
I'm tired of making angry
phone calls to your poor cus-
tomer service representatives,
who can only repeat policies that
neither they nor I have any
chance of changing. I may miss
the ability to call those reps at
any hour of the day. However, I
will not miss their lack of solu-
tions to my concerns or their in-
ability to help me fix mistakes,
some of them are admittedly my
own.
I want a banker who's human,
Bank. I want to talk to someone
who has the power to make sim-


What do you think?
Here are some more guidelines for letters:
Letters are printed on a first-come, first-
served basis. They may be edited to correct
grammar, spelling and factual errors. They
also may be edited for clarity.
Please keep letters to editor to 500
words. Longer letters may be cut due to
space limitations.
Letters should address issues or current


ple changes to my account. I
want a banking experience where
I feel valued as a customer.
So this is to let you know that
I'm leaving you. Don't try to call,
unless you can offer a truly free
checking account without all the
usual stipulations and caveats
you like to impose. I can't move
out quite yet (apparently pending
transactions in between my
checking and savings accounts
bar me from closing my ac-
counts, and you won't let me
negate them). But I hope to be
with someone new really soon. I
am confident that a small but
eager credit union will be happy
to take on my assets.
You and I are over. I don't
think there is any chance you
will hear me and understand,
feel empathy to my plea and re-
spond. You're just not that great

Return to normal weather means a great week for fishing ahead


It took a couple of days for our near-shore waters to clean back up
after last week's storm system.
Now that we're back into a normal weather pattern, the bait is back
on the beach and so are the predators.
Spanish mackerel were super thick all along the beach before that
west wind kicked up last week.
The good action should be back for a while now with an offshore
wind pattern in place. Whether you want to anchor and chum with live
pilchards, which can be cast-netted at night along the bridges, or slow
troll with live threadfins that can be caught on a sabiki rig in the same
waters you're fishing, is up to you.
Kingfish are still around in good numbers and there were a few re-
ports of fish coming from the beach this past weekend, but better
numbers of fish can be found offshore a few miles.


Target natural hard bottom areas in 30 to 40 feet of water, as long
as there is bait around so should be
____ the kings. The shipping channel is
S. Fish TaleS another great place to catch king-
S, fish this time of year.
,1,1, ,, _,,., Markers 5 and 6 are usual hot
spots. A good tactic there is to an-
chor and free-line big threadfins or
blue runners, and always make
sure to have a fresh chum block out.
Inshore the redfish have been cooperating, especially on the high
tides.
Once the water is covering the mangrove roots, target known oyster
clumps along the shoreline. Windy conditions might dirty the water


close to the shoreline, so knowledge of the lay of the land will give you
an advantage.
The high tide fishing has been almost entirely a dead-bait situation.
Fresh threadfins work great, but ladyfish, pinfish or mullet will all
catch fish as well. Work your way along the shoreline with the wind at
your back, targeting points and coves that have the highest concentra-
tion of mullet. Casting your baits underneath the mangroves will in-
crease your chances of getting bit.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To
get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name,
when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail
it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL

Watch your step; alligators are on the move again around Florida


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO Just a reminder: It's spring, and alligators are looking
for love.
The reptiles are active this time of year, and they are found
throughout the county.
'They're on the move because it is mating season. But there's a lot
of habitat they are losing due to drought," said Tony Young, a
spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion in Tallahassee.
'They are having to move to find water and to find a food," he said.
"There's not any more alligators than there were last year, but
there's less habitat so they probably are more concentrated in cer-
tain areas because they have to be."
Alligators have a good sense of smell, Young said.
'They really can smell water from a long way away," he said. "If
their home dries up, and they need to find a new home, they mainly
try to travel at night so they are not seen," he said.
A 10 foot, 8 inch alligator was attempting to cross Eighth Avenue
Southwest in front of Taylor Park April 4 at 2:48 a.m. when a driver
struck it. The driver got out of the car to see what was hit and saw
that there was an alligator wedged under the car.
Largo police officers responded to the incident and contacted the
Largo Fire Department to assist in removing the vehicle from atop
the alligator. Agents from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission were contacted to take custody of the alligator.
The vehicle was undamaged, but the agents took the nuisance al-
ligator away.
In the Largo area alligators are often seen in Taylor Lake, Walsing-
ham Lake and the Largo Central Park Nature Preserve though they
can be found in other waterways, too.
"We have a very robust alligator population in the state," Young
said.
Some Largo residents who live along the south section of Allen's
Creek believed they saw a crocodile several times in the waterway
over the past several days. A state wildlife official sent a photo of the
6-foot reptile to an alligator and crocodile expert who identified it as
an alligator. A resident planned to contact state officials to remove
the alligator. There was concern that the alligator posed a threat to
dogs in homes that surround the creek.
Recently, a man wading up to his chest in Taylor Lake ignored or
didn't see a no swimming sign posted nearby.
About 100 yards away, a 6-foot alligator lay motionless in the
weedy water near the shore.
To say the swimmer was in danger would be a stretch, but state
officials caution people not to swim in areas where gators are known
to be present.
"People for the most part aren't in alligator's diet," he said. "But
sometimes alligators make a mistake just like sharks make a mis-
take, and they can bite you. If you just accidentally startle one. If
you were just wading somewhere and you were doing it quietly
where they didn't know you were there, and just suddenly just
touched its tale, it might just whip around and bite just as a reac-
tion."
People should take precautions when bringing their dogs to parks
and other areas where alligators are present.
'They love small dogs," he said.
To eat, that is.

Having bass on a stringer tied to a belt loop can attract an alligator.
'They smell that dead fish, and then they follow you," Young said.
'They are opportunistic feeders."
Young said he tries to emphasize safety in numbers.
"It's true for a lot of different cases, but it's also true with alligators,
and a lot of potentially dangerous wildlife," he said.
He advised outdoor enthusiasts to swim, ski and participate in other
water sports where a lot of people are present and there's a lot of boat
traffic and noise to keep alligators away. People should't engage in
water activities in remote areas, particularly at dawn or dusk when al-
ligators are most active, Young said.
"If you're going to go back in a slough somewhere that looks like the
last person who might have seen it is the Indians, and you want to go
swimming there that's probably where you don't want to do it,"
Young said. "Especially by yourself."
Alligators become more aggressive when people feed them, an illegal
activity.
"Sometimes people intentionally feed them, which kind of makes
them lose their wariness of man," Young said. "Some people uninten-
tionally feed alligators by cleaning their fish at the docks and throwing
the scraps in the water, not knowing they are attracting snakes and al-
ligators."
Consequently, alligators will hang around docks and similar facili-
ties more frequently.
In the past 10 years the Commission has received an average of
nearly 16,000 alligator-related complaints per year. Most of the com-
plaints deal with alligators occurring in places such as backyard
ponds, canals, ditches, and streams, but other conflicts occur when
alligators wander into garages, swimming pools and golf course
ponds.
According to the commission, there were 22 fatal attacks in Florida
from 1948 to 2011. In that same time frame, there were 111 minor
bites and 224 major bites.
The only confirmed human fatality caused by an alligator in Pinellas
County in recent decades occurred on May 13, 2006. Judy Cooper, 42,


Alligators are more
concentrated in some
areas because of loss of
habitat due to drought.


was killed by an alligator in a canal in the East Lake Woodlands subdi-
vision in Oldsmar. Circumstances of the attack are uncertain because
no witnesses were present. The 8-foot, 5-inch female alligator respon-
sible for the attack was captured and destroyed.
Florida is home to two native crocodilians: the American alligator,
which is found in all 67 counties, and the American crocodile, which
may be found in coastal areas of the Keys, Southeast and Southwest
Florida.
The commission conducts annual counts of alligators in the spring
in harvest areas, where permits are issued for the hunting season.
"If we see that the count went down from the previous year, we will
issue less permits for the coming hunting season," Young said. "If we
see the population has grown, we will issue more permits. We do try to
keep the population in check."

Living with alligators
The Conservation Commission provides the following advice about
alligators:
If you encounter any alligator that you believe poses a threat to
people, pets or property call the Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-
FWC-GATOR (392-4286). Please be aware that nuisance alligators are
harvested not relocated.
Leave alligators alone. State law prohibits killing, harassing or pos-
sessing alligators. Handling even small alligators can result in injuries.
Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn. Therefore,
avoid swimming at night.
Dogs and cats are similar in size is the natural prey of alligators.
Don't allow pets to swim, exercise or dunk in near waters that may
contain alligators. Dogs often attract an alligator's interest, so do not
swim with your dog.
Alligators are an important part of Florida's landscape and play a
valuable role in the ecology of our state's wetlands. Alligators are pred-
ators and help keep other aquatic animal populations in balance.
Seek immediate attention if you are bitten by an alligator. Alligator
bites can result in serious infections.

Kevin Timothy KELLEY
There will be a memorial service at 11 a.m. on April 14
at Seminole Lake Park for Kevin Timothy Kelley who
S entered into Heaven on Nov. 2, 2011. Kevin was bor
April 19, 1968, in St. Petersburg, Fla., a son of Terrance
and Rosemarie O'Donnell Kelley. He was born and
raised in Pinellas Park, Fla. but had made his residence
in Youngstown, Ohio since 1997. He was self-employed
as a flooring contractor and was a member of Western Reserve United
Methodist Church. A lover of the outdoors, he enjoyed camping, fishing
and golfing but his love for cars outweighed them all. He was a Ford man,
who owned and enjoyed numerous Mustangs through the years. His love
for sports focused on Florida teams. He was a fan of the Gators,
Buccaneers, and Rays. He will be forever cherished by his wife, Patty
Kelley, whom he married Aug. 7, 1999. He will also be sadly missed by
his two daughters, Brittany Marie and Samantha Renee, both of Boardman
Ohio; a grandson, Jayden, also of Boardman; his mother, Rosemarie
Kelley Ferguson; two brothers, Michael Kelley and Patrick Kelley, all of
Pinellas Park. His memory will live on through a host of other family
members both near and far. He was preceded in death by his father,
Terrance Kelley and his stepfather, Thomas Ferguson. In lieu of flowers,
donations can be made to Hospice House, Boardman, in Kevin's memory.

MORE THAN

AN ART-

A WAY OF BEING


"Truly nourishes and
lifts the spirit..."
Stephen L. Norris, co-founder of The Carlyle Crour


"It is really out of this world!
If I had to describe it, the words might be 'divine,'
'reborn,' and 'hope.'"
Christine Walevska, master cellist


SHEN YUN PERFORMERS are selected
from among the top classical artists in
the world. Every year, they come from all
corners of the globe to an idyllic campus
in upstate New York. This is where their
mastery of their craft takes shape into a
new production. And this is where a most
magical revival of true Chinese culture be-
gins...
The people of China have long held
that their magnificent culture was a gift
from the heavens. Art was primarily a
means to explore the connection between
humankind and the higher universe. Art-
ists cultivated virtue because they felt that
to create art worthy of the divine, there
must first be inner beauty and purity.


"So inspiring...
I may have found some ideas for the
next Avatar movie."
- Robert Stromberg, Academy Award-winning
production designer for Avatar


Shen Yun follows in these ancient
traditions.
Shen Yun artists believe that just mas-
tering the surface of the art is not enough,
as it is the heart of the artist that the audi-
ence feels. So they take the wisdom and
values of traditional Chinese culture as
part of their lives. These inspire them to
nurture goodness in themselves on their
path to artistic perfection. That is the cul-
ture of Shen Yun.


"A beautiful show...
fantastic!"
-JoyBehar, Co-host ofABC's The View


NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE...


SHEN YUN-it's a grand production. Every year we start fresh. Every detail mat-
ters. Our goal? Not just another show. We take our craft beyond the boundaries of
performing arts as you know it.
A Shen Yun show is a fusion of classical arts with modern appeal. As one audi-
ence member put it, "It's like a fashion show, opera, concert, and dance perfor-
mance all rolled into one." Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No. Our passion motivates us
to bring all these elements together into one extraordinary experience.
Classical Chinese dance lies at the heart of our performances. The dancers-


with what some have called "limitless bodies"-turn an intensely difficult art form
into something beautiful and effortless. China's 5,000 years of civilization provide
an endless source of inspiration. The choreographers work closely with the com-
posers to recreate ancient stories and legends, or convey an aspect of the culture,
through short pieces that last no more than a few minutes. Our graphic artists,
meanwhile, use advanced digital technology to produce stunning animated back-
drops that correspond precisely to each dance.
After seeing the show, one audience member marveled, "This production... is
nothing short of a miracle."

"It's a new realm of dance-
it's not just pretty, it's serious pretty. There's
a lot of depth to it, and a lot of meaning."
Vanessa Harwood, former Principal Dancer
of National Ballet of Canada


A VAST DANCE SYSTEM

TEMPERED OVER

THOUSANDS OF YEARS


CLASSICAL CHINESE DANCE is one way in
which 5,000 years of Chinese culture have been
passed down and retained. It is a dance form
built on profound traditional aesthetics. In its early days,
it was conveyed primarily among the people, in the impe-
rial courts, and through ancient plays. Over thousands of
years, this art was continually organized and refined, with
it eventually developing into the vast, systematic, and dis-
tinctly Chinese dance form that we know today.
Classical Chinese dance has its own set of training
methods in basic skills and has strict training in both phys-


IN ADDITION TO the classical forms, Shen Yun features
the distinctive colors and styles of ethnic and folk dance.
Choreographers draw upon over 20 dynasties and 50 eth-
nic groups to create pieces whose settings range from the
northern steppes of Mongolia to the lush forests of Yun-
nan. Among the most impressive elements of any Shen


ical expression and specific postures. It also involves com-
binations of leaps, turns, flips, spins, and other aerial and
tumbling techniques. It is an extensive and independent
system of dance.
Within classical Chinese dance lie China's deep cul-
tural traditions, allowing its movements to be richly
expressive, such that the personalities and feelings of
characters can be portrayed with unparalleled clarity. It
is therefore capable of depicting scenes from any time
period, whether ancient or modern, Eastern or Western, in
a strikingly vivid way.


Yun performance are the large-scale ensemble pieces in
which dozens of dancers appear to move as one across
the stage.
Shen Yun has also created its very own brand of story-
based dance, which often deals with universal, thought-
provoking themes.


WHAT DOES

"SHEN YUN" MEAN?
CHINESE IS AN IMMENSELY rich language. Many
characters contain deep inner meanings and nu-
ances that are difficult to translate into English, such
as those in our very name: Shen Yun.
The character Shen (E$) is a general term for "di-
vine" or "divine being." Chinese cosmology, in fact,
is replete with hundreds of deities, Buddhas, and
Taoist immortals who play different roles and color
the canon of Chinese history with thousands of rich
stories.
This feeling of the divine plays into the second
character of our name: Yun (i). Its meaning is far
greater than what literal translation can capture.
"Yun" refers to the overall manner of a dancer, a
dancer's style, and the meaning behind his or her
movements.
So, when we put "Shen" and "Yun" together: it's
about the grace, compassion, and sublime beauty
of heavenly realms that are shown through the sub-
tlest expressions and gestures of our dancers. That
is the essence of the name "Shen Yun."

Competitors prepare for the Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe race during the annual Shark Bite Challenge, presented in conjunction with the Island
EarthDays event at Honeymoon Island State Park.


Island EarthDays

Annual event benefits Honeymoon Island, Caladesi state parks


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

DUNEDIN Kicking off Earth Day celebrations a week early, Friends
of the Island Parks Inc. will present its annual outdoor festival Island
EarthDays on Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15, at Honeymoon Is-
land State Park, 1 Causeway Blvd.
Festival hours will be Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is free with paid admission to the park. Park
admission is $8 a vehicle with an eight-person limit per vehicle.
Designed with fun for the whole family in mind, the festival features
live music and entertainment on a big outdoor stage, bungee jumping
and rock wall, fine artists and quality crafts and the Sharkbite Chal-
lenge Kayak Race, as well as activities for kids. There will be fresh
seafood and other concessions along with beverages including beer
and wine, all available for purchase from area vendors. Environmental
components of the event include make-and-take rain barrel work-
shops, environmental vendors, Osprey Village nature education area,
guided walks in wooded areas and on the beach and nature talks and
presentations.
Island EarthDays draws Tampa Bay residents and visitors alike,
providing a fun-filled learning experience for both children and adults.
According to Friends of the Island Parks Inc., the nonprofit community
group which supports Honeymoon and Caladesi Island state parks
with volunteer assistance and fundraising events, the annual festival
showcases the rich natural resources these islands provide and offers
an opportunity to teach attendees how they can help preserve and en-
hance the area's natural heritage.
Although officially this will be the sixth Island EarthDays festival,
the event actually evolved from an older carnival seafood festival. That
festival was previously presented in the park's paved parking area ad-
jacent to the beach. As time went by, park supporters decided that the
carnival theme did not reflect the unique, nature-based recreation and
conservation image Honeymoon Island State Park represents. That's
when the Friends of the Island Parks took over the event and moved it
from the paved area to the palm-dappled, grassed picnic area and
changed the format to be in harmony with the environment, while tim-
ing it to coincide with the worldwide celebration of Earth Day.
The event also benefits the islands because it is the primary
fundraising event, organized by the Friends of the Island Parks, to
supplement the state budget for both Honeymoon and Caladesi state
parks.


Crowds visit with environmental vendors at the annual Island
EarthDays event at Honeymoon Island State Park.

According to Sally Hess of Friends of the Island Parks, the group re-
cently helped park rangers when state funds fell short.
"We purchased a much-needed club car for rangers use in getting
around the island," Hess explained. Their state funds are insufficient
for purchasing additional equipment."
Funds also are used to support the Rotary Centennial Nature Cen-
ter and to finance children's programs. Funds also will go toward extra
facilities for visitors, such as the proposed interpretive pavilion on
Caladesi and a new playground on Honeymoon.
"We are currently working on raising funds to replace rusting play-
ground (equipment) in a picnic area at Honeymoon with a new bound-
less playground accessible to all- adults and children," Hess said. "We

Entertainment
Island EarthDays 2012 will salute island and
coastal music.
This year's entertainment lineup will include per-
formances by Celtic folk duo Juniper, steel drum
troupe Panakolada, rock-and-rollers Ron and the
Classics, bagpiper Emmet Bondurant, coastal
music artist Mark Mann and the blues/Southern
rock outfit Slickside.
Two dancing groups will take the stage, including
the Royal Polynesian Review and the Stephen Scariff
Irish Dancers.
Juniper features Frances Pisacane on fiddle and
Jasmine Hart on guitar and vocals. The duo serves
up both traditional Celtic and alternative folk
sounds, weaving a tight tapestry of haunting
melodies and lush harmonies. "Live from the Ap-
palachians," their third album, was voted No. 3
Celtic Album of the Year in 2008 by WNCW in
Asheville, N.C.
Ron and the Classics take audiences on a trip
back to the golden age of rock, playing classic tunes
such as "Mama Mia," "Mustang Sally," "California
Dreamin'" and "Run Around Sue."
Mark Mann also will perform, offering a salute to
Jimmy Buffett. Locals follow this musician to area
venues such as Ozona Blue and The Thirsty Marlin,
enjoying his engaging Key West style.
The Hawaiian Outriggers Race will take place Sat-
urday, 11 a.m. Kayak, paddleboard, surf ski and
canoe races will kick off Sunday, 10 a.m.
Following is a schedule of festival events:

special activities area where there will be a nature

This year, the children's games, exploration and
project areas will be expanded and encourage learn-
ing the real dirt on trash," Hess said.
Furry friends are welcome, too: Pets can enjoy the
festival as long as they are kept on a 6-foot hand-
held leash.

Shark Bite Challenge
The annual Shark Bite Challenge will be present-
ed in conjunction with Island EarthDays 2012 on
Saturday and Sunday, at Honeymoon Island State
Park. Participants will meet in the park's Oasis
Parking Lot.
The Shark Bite Challenge will feature two days of
paddling and racing.
The six-person, 12-mile Hawaiian Outrigger
Canoe race will be Saturday, 11 a.m., on a regatta-
style course. These 45-foot long traditional canoes
offer a glimpse at Polynesian islanders' ancient form


of transportation. Today, racing these canoes has
become an increasingly popular competitive sport in
Hawaii and around the world.
The course is expected to be a regatta-style trian-
gle which is three-miles around. The teams would
do three laps of the triangle before finishing, making
the course nine miles long.
Outrigger canoes may be dropped off at Honey-
moon Island State Park Friday, April 13. There will
be a captains' meeting Saturday, 10:45 a.m.
Registration costs $120 a canoe. Lunch and
awards will follow after the race.
Sunday races will welcome kayaks, canoes, OC-
is, OC-2s, surf skis, stand-up paddleboards, prone
paddleboards "just about anything that floats," ac-
cording to the event website.
There will be a race meeting at 9 a.m. The race
starts at 10 a.m.
There will be two course options. The long course
will be two laps of the short course. The course is
offshore, and will be an out-and-back course. The
exact course will be determined close to, if not on,
the race date, as direction of the course depends on
winds, tides, and water conditions.
The short course will be four miles long while the
long course will be eight miles long.
The race fee is $30.

About Honeymoon
Island State Park
Situated near the northern end of Florida's Gulf
Coast barrier island chain, Honeymoon Island State
Park boasts four miles of white sandy beaches.
Pioneers actually called the key "Hog Island."
Thanks to the marketing savvy of a New York devel-


oper who built bungalows for honeymooners on the
island in the late 1930s, the name was changed and
it stuck.
Regular visitors to the 2,810-acre park spend
time fishing for trout, redfish, pompano and shark;
walking along nature trails through pine and man-
grove forests; canoeing or kayaking in St. Joseph
Sound; swimming, surfing and sunbathing on the
beach; learning about the park's history and wildlife
at the Rotary Centennial Nature Center, or just en-
joying the outdoors with a picnic.
The park's Osprey Trail meanders through scenic
pine flatwoods. The island is home to a wide variety
of wildlife.
"Heading out to the nature trails will give you
ample opportunities to run into the inhabitants of
the island," writes Pete Krulder on the Honeymoon
Island State Park website. "While Osprey are the
norm, keep an eye out for the gopher tortoise cross-
ing your path, the armadillo foraging for food, or the
raccoon scurrying off into the woods."
Krulder reminds all prospective visitors to plan
ahead when visiting any of Florida's state parks.
"Please remember the essentials when exploring
the outdoors," Krulder writes, "Sun protection, hy-
dration, and bug spray.
Honeymoon Island was the most visited park in
the state in 2010 with more than 1 million visitors.
Combined, Honeymoon and Caladesi had a direct
economic impact on the local area of an estimated
$71 million last year, according to the Friends of the
Island Parks. This was assessed in terms of jobs,
goods and services and accommodation.

Horoscopes
April 12, 2012

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Friction among friends puts a
damper on an evening out until
someone you least expect pres-
ents a compromise. Who knew
you had it in you, Capricorn.

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
Enough, Aquarius. You've paid
your dues. Back off and let your
loved ones figure out the situa-
tion for themselves. They made
their bed. J ... 1. must lie in it.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
It's high time you got involved,
Pisces. Stop beating around the
bush and make your move. A
special occasion calls for some
extra special planning.

Aries
March 21 -April 19
Bon appetit, Aries. Prepare for
a loved one to whisk you away
on a fun, food-filled adventure.
Stepping up your fitness routine
will put you on the right path.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
Don't count on it, Taurus.
Just because someone says they
will do something doesn't mean
they will. Have a backup plan
just in case. A phone call results
in a flurry of activity.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
Sunny skies call for some
stress busting, Gemini. Grab the
gang and head outside for some
much-needed fun. Fresh air will
get the ideas flowing again.

Cancer
June 22 July 22
The road to financial freedom
begins, and you pass the first
test with flying colors. You know
more than you think, Cancer,
and implementing it is not that
hard.

Leo
July 23 -August 22
Uh-oh, Leo. Your resolve
melts, and clutter once again
takes control. Muster up the
strength to say no and mean it,
no matter how enticing the deal.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
You're a doer, Virgo. That spe-
cial someone? Not so much. Cut
them some slack from time to
time, and they just might show
you a thing or two.

Libra
September 23 October 22
Practice makes perfect, Libra.
Keep at it, and you'll achieve the
outcome you're hoping for. A per-
sonal crisis comes to a riveting
conclusion.

Scorpio
October 23 November 21
Slow down, Scorpio. You're
moving too fast and missing out
on some crucial details. A letter
causes quite the stir of emotion
at an event.

Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
No more, Sagittarius. You've
waffled on the situation long
enough. Make a decision and
learn to live with it. A senior
could use a helping hand.

Beatlemania event


comes to Belleair
By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
BELLEAIR It's been nearly 50 years since Beatlemania gripped the
United States for the first time, when four young lads from Liverpool
formed what would become the best-selling band in history.
As part of the Sundays in Belleair concert series, Beatlemania Magic
- a highly acclaimed Beatles tribute band, will perform Sunday, April
15, at the Dimmitt Community Center, 918 Osceola Road, Belleair.
Gates will open at 4:30 p.m. The concert will run from 5:15 to 8:30
p.m.
Presented by the Belleair Parks and Recreation Department, tickets
are $5 in advance or $10 at the gate. Beatlemania Magic is said to
blow audiences away with identical costumes, equipment and spot-on
harmonies, recreating the magic mood of the Beatles' early years.
Originally, Beatlemania was a term used to describe the fan frenzy
directed toward The Beatles. The phenomenon developed in the early
1960s as The Fab Four John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Har-
rison and Ringo Starr released a string of wildly popular albums
and chart-topping singles and toured relentlessly. Between 1963 and
1965, The Beatles released "Please Please Me" (1963), "With The Bea-
tles" (1963), "A Hard Day's Night" (1964), "Beatles for Sale" (1964),
"Help!" (1965) and "Rubber Soul" (1965). Singles from this period in-
cluded "Love Me Do," "Please Please Me," "She Loves You," "I Want to
Hold Your Hand," "Can't Buy Me Love," "A Hard Day's Night," "I Feel
Fine," "Ticket to Ride," "Help!", "Yesterday" and "We Can Work It
Out."
For many, Beatlemania evokes images of screaming teenage girls
and The Beatles' legendary appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show" in
1964.
The musicians behind Beatlemania Magic strive to capture the
essence of The Beatles in their lovingly crafted, methodical tribute. It
all began with deep devotion to the source material.
"I first got involved in the Beatles tribute business because, No. 1, I
was a huge Beatles fan and, No. 2, I always wanted to be in a band,"
said Bill Kropinak of Beatlemania Magic. "Basically put them both to-
gether and started a Beatles tribute band."
The band consists of Mark Baranski as George Harrison, Russ
Saylor as Paul McCartney, Burt Scheel as Ringo and Kropinak as
John Lennon.
"It kind of started like it did with the real Beatles," Kropinak said.
"I first met Russ when he approached me for an audition."
Kropinak said he recognized right away how talented Saylor was.
In fact, according to Kropinak, within a year, Saylor had learned to
play left-handed bass to better emulate McCartney something that
a lot of true Beatle fans notice immediately, Kropinak said.
"A friend referred me to Burt (Ringo) and Burt brought Mark
(George) into the band," Kropinak said. "We've been playing together
with this lineup for about five years. It's tough to find band mates
specific to a tribute, as you need to not only be a musician, but an
actor, and you also have to love what you are doing. This lineup is all
of that."
One difference between Kropinak and Lennon is that Kropinak was
a "late bloomer," not starting in his music career until about age 30.
The Beatles formed in 1960, when Lennon was just 20 and prior to
that Lennon (along with McCartney) had been involved in The Quar-
rymen for several years. What Kropinak lacked in experience,
though, he made up for with his enthusiasm.
"I knew all the Beatle lyrics before I ever played a guitar and then
had to learn to play them on guitar, harmonica and keyboard," he
said. Kropinak and Beatlemania Magic have evolved into a dedicated
group of professionals known for delivering stellar performances that
mirror the energy and essence of an early 1960s Beatles' concert.
'The Belleair audience can expect to be taken back to a happy time
when the Beatles created Beatlemania," Kropinak said. "We will take
the audience on a 'magical mystery tour' of some of their favorite
songs performing them live with a minimum amount of production,
just like the Beatles did. We also make sure to add the humor and
wittiness that went on between The Beatles on stage. Both young and

lifetime-a moment so powerfully beautiful it touches the soul.

across Asia, and received standing ovations at Lincoln Center in New York. Now,

TWO GREAT CLASSICAL

MUSIC TRADITIONS-

ONE GLORIOUS

SOUND



"Simply astounding to watch,
and a pleasure to the ear."
OperaOnline


FROM THE MOMENT the gong is
struck to herald the beginning of
the show, you know you are in for
something musically memorable.
The Shen Yun Orchestra masterfully
blends two of the world's greatest classi-
cal music traditions, Chinese and Western.
Ancient Chinese instruments such as the
soul-stirring erhu and the delicate pipa
lead the melody on top of a full orches-
tra of Western strings, percussion, wood-
winds, and brass. The Western orchestra
with its energy and grandeur, and the Chi-
nese instruments with their distinct tones
and styles, create a dramatic new sound.

VOCAL SOLOISTS
The resounding voices of bel canto
soloists are an integral part of the Shen
Yun experience. Each program is height-
ened by several moving selections from
our singers. Their impassioned songs give
voice to hopes that have shaped Chinese
culture for centuries.


"Beautiful sound...
strikingly intricate melodies."
NYTheater.com
"An extraordinary experience...
exquisitely beautiful."
Cate Blanchett, Academy
Award-winning actress
Sydney 2011


SHEN YUN-A GLOBAL SENSATION.

"Their passion is really touching."
Chi Cao, Principal Dancer of Birmingham
Royal Ballet and lead actor in Mao's Last Dancer
London, 2009

"The ancient Chinese wisdom
it conveyed will not only benefit the Chinese people,
but also the whole world."
Ted Kavanau, founding Senior
Producer of CNN Headline News
Los Angeles, 2010
"I am completely enchanted...
a marvelous evening."
Her Royal Highness Princess
Michael of Kent
London, 2071
