VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenColumnists offer to legislators still stands. ... Page 17A. Experts say state faces critical energy juncture By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE From an energy standpoint, Florida is in a bad place. More than $17 billion goes out of the state each year to pay for fossil fuels to fire up electric plants around Florida and that figure is likely to continue upward. More importantly, energy experts say, its money that could be spent more effectively within a struggling economy. Speaking at an energy forum March 22 at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, four experts tossed around different ideas about the states energy future and possible solutions. They included Stephen Smith, executive director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy; Robert Scheffel Wright, a Tallahassee attorney who specializes in utilities and energy law; Joseph Treshler, vice president of Covanta Energy; and Chuck Warrington, managing director and executive officer of Clearwater Gas System. Most agreed the states Public Service Commission needs to be retooled to meet the needs of state residents and from there develop a workable renewable energy plan for the state. Legislation has to change to get changes in the PSC, said Treshler. Theres no incentive on utilities to do anything but maintain what they do now. The business model has to change. He said there was a proposal for a renewable energy target in the state, or an integrated resource plan using Features Business . . . . . . . . . .16A Classieds . . . . . . . . .6-9B Community . . . . . . . .12-13A County . . . . . . . . . . .2-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1, 3-5B Health & tness . . . . . . . .18A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . .10-11A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Seminole . . . . . . . . . . .8A Sports . . . . . . . . . .14-15A The Beaches . . . . . . . . .9A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .17A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising COUNTYToo many pets a Pinellas issueOnly 26 to 27 percent of Pinellas Countys estimated 500,000 pets are licensed an untapped resource during another unfavorable budget year. ...

One clears the way for a longawaited merger between the Pinellas Planning Council and the countys Metropolitan Planning Organization. Passage of the bill allows amendments to a special act that established the PPC. Officials began talking in early 2010 about combining the functions of the PPC and MPO into a single, independent entity responsible for both land use and transportation planning, according to a PPC News publication from that year. A committee, which included three representatives each from the PPC, MPO and Board of Pinellas County Commissioners, convened in April 2010 to take on the issue of merging transportation and future land use planning at the countywide level. The committee concluded a single board, instead of two, could do the job. The single 13-member board would still include representation of elected officials from throughout the county, as well as a member from the Pinellas Suncoast Transportation Authority. According to language in the bill, the county has become a high transportation planning priority.Land use patterns are a critical factor in determining multimodal transportation, particularly transit, is functional and effective, the bill says, adding, Transportation and land use planning do not exist independently but have a relationship in which each influences the other. Provisions are made for membership requirements, election of officers, meetings, quorums and authority, as well as a budget and annual independent audit. The bill also allows the county to repeal its current countywide plan and create a new one that is broadly defined and policy-based. There are processes for amendments, standards and procedures and a timetable for See BILLS, page 4A Community events are in abundance ... See page 12A. Look for theBallot inside this issuewho wins.

Will Davis, interim director of animal services, told Pinellas County Commissioners during a March 30 work session that his department is 75 percent self-sufficient, bringing in about $3 million of its $4 million budget. He also said if more citizens licensed their pets, as required by county code, more money would be available to provide necessary services, such as dealing with pet overpopulation. This is not a perceived problem, he told commissioners. Its a real problem. Davis said the countys animal shelter, constructed in 1995, was high quality and still effective, although most likely some things about it would change if it were being constructed today. He said good progress was being made in getting animals adopted. Thanks to volunteers, Saturday adoptions are available again. Were doing everything we can to get these animals out (of the shelter), he said, adding, We want them to be in good homes. About 30 percent of the pets brought to the countys shelter are adopted. Their owners reclaim another 10 percent. Were very focused on building a volunteer force, Davis said. Animal services have one employee dedicated to working with and recruiting more volunteers something Davis said was making a difference. Still, 51 percent of animals taken into the shelter are euthanized, which is better than the national average of 60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats put down each year. Davis points to irresponsible pet owners as contributors to the problem coupled with a lack of funding to provide spay and neutering services for low-income residents. The program was eliminated in the past due to budgetary issues, but Davis reinstated the service by reprioritizing, allowing staff to spay and neuter animals at the shelter for those who meet financial guidelines. More education on responsible pet ownership is needed, he said, including the importance of spaying, neutering and keeping animals off the streets. Irresponsible pet ownership is the beginning of the problem, he said, referring to a flow chart that details the issues. Were it not for folks letting pets run at large and breed indiscriminately all through the year Davis talked about the ongoing issue of feral cats, which he said was different from the problem of cats being allowed by their owners to roam free. Back in 2009, Barbara Snow, former director of the Humane Society, and Dr. DeWayne Taylor, former director of county animal services, put together a work group to try to find a solution to the feral cat problem. Davis said the group came up with some good initiatives, which county commissioners acknowledged, but it was a private group leading the effort and nothing really happened. Dr. Caroline Thomas, animal services director of veterinary services, reviewed efforts made to trap, neuter and release feral cats, a program advocated by the work group. She said about 60 percent of feral cats that come into the shelter are euthanized because they cant be adopted out. She said kittens could be transformed from feral to companion cats, but not adults that grew up in the wild and are un-socialized. Of the 775 kittens placed in foster care in 2011, 40 to 50 percent were feral. In addition, county law requires that cats be confined or under their owners control at all times. She said people who feed and care for feral cats are breaking the law. Three feeding citations have been issued, but only after multiple contacts trying to educate those in violation. Trap, neuter and release programs also dont really do anything for the animals welfare and quality of life. We dont want feral cats, we want companions inside cats, she said. Staff estimated there are about 150,000 to 200,000 feral cats living in Pinellas. There are way more cats than resources, Thomas said. In addition, feral cats are predators. Feeding them can attract wildlife, such as coyotes. Plus theres the issue of public health and safety due to transmittable diseases that may be contained in cat feces. One of these diseases is the leading cause of blindness in children, she said. To reduce the feral cat population effectively, 80 to 90 percent would have to be spayed or neutered, which could be between 120,000 and 180,000 cats. In addition, it would take a constant effort to keep the population under control. And it doesnt address irresponsible pet ownership, Thomas said. Dave Kandz, conservation chair for the St. Petersburg Audubon Society, and several wildlife biologists told commissioners they are opposed to trap, neuter and release programs for feral cats, primarily because it continues to allow non-native predators into the natural ecosystem. Wildlife biologist Jean Murphy said the wild is not a suitable habitat for domestic cats, which should be kept indoors as companions. John Hood, president of the Clearwater Audubon Society, said he was in support of a program of trap, neuter and adopt for feral cats, but not the release of predators into the environment. Dr. Don Morgan, a long-time veterinarian with Bluffs Animal Hospital in Belleair Bluffs and member of several veterinarian professional organizations, said state law prohibits the release of nonindigenous animals into the wild. Trapping and euthanizing is not popular, he said, adding that it was something that must be done due to disease problems and the fact that feral cats are not socialized. Morgan advocates a low-cost, high-volume voluntary spay and neuter program to prevent pet overpopulation. Thomas talked about the pros and cons of a mandatory spay and neuter program, as opposed to leaving it voluntary as it is today. Our shelter couldnt be more on board with voluntary spay and neuter, she said. Concerns about a mandatory program include having people skip veterinary care because their animals are not spayed or neutered. Also, more low-income residents might choose to surrender their pets if they cant afford the surgery. Plus, animal services dont have the budget for aggressive enforcement of a mandatory program. Instead, Thomas suggested looking for ways to encourage more residents to spay and neuter. One way could be to reduce fees for residents who reclaim animals brought into the shelter that have been spayed or neutered. Byron Elder, secretary of the Clearwater Kennel Club, spoke against a mandatory spay and neuter program, saying that it would discriminate against breeders of purebred animals.

He said the consensus was that the best way to battle the pet overpopulation problem is to provide affordable, low-cost and accessible spay and neutering services. But, spaying and neutering of animals takes money. Davis said to do more would take help from everybody private organizations, veterinarians not just the countys shelter. One way to increase funding for animal services is by getting more residents to license their pets, which Davis said was an untapped resource that could help supplement animal services budget. An animal license is $20 a year and residents must show proof of current rabies vaccination. Commissioners asked staff to continue working with private organizations, such as SPCA and the Humane Society, to find the most affordable and effective methods of dealing with the countys animal problems. They also asked staff to suggest revisions to the fee schedule to add incentives for spaying and neutering. OVERPOPULATION, from page 2A

4A County SEB Beacon, March 29, 2012 different sustainable methods, but it did not pass this year in the Florida Legislature. Thirty states have established these policies but for philosophical reasons Florida has not, said Treshler. We need a regulatory body that regulates and provides oversight, said Smith. We need to think in terms of clean resources. We need wiggle room in how decisions are made because too many times theyre made with the power companies in mind. Most energy experts consider a renewable energy target, which would establish energy goals for the state, as the first step encouraging growth of renewable energy resources. It would allow new energy investment to come into the state, said Smith. Florida currently has a captured Public Service Commission because it is largely controlled by the utilities. We need the political leadership to look out for the long term interests of the citizens of the state. Smith said the major utilities have no interest in investing in renewable energy because their stockholders like to see more visible growth signs, such as brick and mortar construction. Florida is in a precarious situation, Smith said. But with renewable energy costs coming down, the time is right for sustainable methods. Wright said the state needs to create incentives for people to come in and invest in the state. He mentioned the option of a blind elections auction in which companies would submit bids for power service and the lowest bidder would get the contract. Its not rocket science, Wright said. You bid down per kilowatt hour. Thats how it ought to work. Warrington addressed the advantages of natural gas as an option to electricity for a number of different applications. There are more natural gas reserves in this country than Saudi Arabia has oil, he said. The game changer in the U.S. was the amount of gas generation following the shale discoveries. Warrington noted that Publix Supermarkets has embarked on a program to install gas power generators for emergency use in each of its stores and Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater recently installed a gas generator for its regular daytime power needs. Gas is the one fossil fuel going down in price, he said. Gas is plentiful and cost effective. Warrington said natural gas costs equivalent to $2.19 per gallon of gasoline. Smith pointed to a biomass power plant in Gainesville that will depend on about 50 percent of its needs from fossil fuels, as a first step. Other options would include solar and wind power, as well as methane hydrates, a natural gas alternative readily available in the Gulf of Mexico.Joseph Treshler, vice president of Covanta Energy, said theres no incentive on utilities to do anything but maintain what they do now. The business model has to change, he said.Photos by BOB McCLUREChuck Warrington, managing director and executive officer of Clearwater Gas System, addressed the advantages of natural gas as an option to electricity. ENERGY, from page 1Areview after a new countywide plan in adopted. Besides the governors signature, changes cant happen without approval from the Florida Department of Transportation and the governor of a reapportionment plan from the MPO allowing it to change its membership from 11 to 13 members.PSTA and transportationAnother bill involving the future of transportation in Pinellas made it through the Legislature this year. The bill allows PSTA to look for alternative ways to fund its operations besides collection of property tax. Instead, PSTA can choose to use a specified discretionary surtax. The bill, referred to as a tax swap, would prohibit PSTA from collecting property taxes for its service if it takes sales tax money. Officials have said for some time that property taxes cant pay for transit in Pinellas. Getting a green light to explore other funding alternatives is good news for PSTA officials. PSTA thanks and supports the members of our legislative delegation for their hard work and dedication to supporting improved transportation in Pinellas County and the Tampa Bay area, said CEO Brad Miller. We are optimistic that the legislatures passage of the tax swap measure will allow PSTA to change its primary funding source and significantly improve transit service in our community. The Legislature also passed a bill that intends to help improve regional transit connectivity and put into place operational efficiencies and service enhancements per the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authoritys Regional Transportation Plan. To that end, the bill requires a review of PSTA and the Hillsborough Regional Transit Authority. The two organizations are required to begin holding joint meetings within 30 days after July 1. The bill mandates that the review include governance, funding, facilities ownership and management, and consideration of financial obligations and resources. A report must be submitted to the President of the state Senate by Feb. 1. The report must include proposed legislation to implement specific recommendations concerning the reorganization of each agency, a merger of the two agencies or consolidation of functions within PSTA and HART. PSTA officials arent as optimistic about this bill. PSTA will continue to partner with other transit agencies in the Tampa Bay region to find ways to reduce costs and boost service, Miller said. Although we have concerns over the cost of the measure, we will comply with the mandate with high hopes for success. Other local bills approved East Lake annexation bill, which prevents the unincorporated area of north Pinellas from being annexed by neighboring municipalities without approval by referendum by residents. Amendment of the special act charter for the Lealman First Control District to say that if a municipality annexes unincorporated territory within district boundaries before July 1, 2016, the district will continue as the sole provider of fire and rescue services for the annexed area. The amendment also lowers the millage cap for the district from 10 mills to 5.75 mills. Authority for the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco to issue temporary permits to nonprofit civic organizations for sale of alcohol for consumption at outdoor events on public right-of-way and park property in downtown Clearwater.ResolutionsThe Legislature also passed two resolutions, one of which recognizes Pinellas County Commission Chair John Morroni, who is currently undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The Legislature recognizes Morronis outstanding service as a member of the Pinellas County Board of Commissioners and for his commitment to public service. The resolution includes a number of whereas clauses that detail some of Morronis accomplishments from the time he was born on Feb. 16, 1955, in Chicago, Ill., ending with one of the commissioners favorite events the 17th annual appreciation dinner for law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMS providers and members of the crisis intervention team. To date, the appreciation dinner has raised more than $250,000 for charitable causes. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium also received some accolades in the form of a resolution recognizing the extraordinary efforts in rehabilitating the dolphin Winter and for bringing hope and encouragement to those around the world who have prosthetics.

Operating out of a command post in City Hall, the suspects were arrested between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Most of those arrested were Madeira Beach residents who lived on 145th Avenue, or nearby.

Witnesses told detectives a white pickup truck was seen leaving the marina parking lot just after the fire started. Firefighters from Madeira Beach, Seminole and Treasure Island responded to a boat fire at about 6 a.m. in the marina next to Latitudes Restaurant at 13205 Gulf Blvd. By 8 a.m. the smoldering fiberglass and wood from the four boats was under control. There were no injuries. The fire, which investigators are describing as suspicious, started in a 38-foot 1991 Mediterranean fiberglass boat, valued at between $85,000 and $100,000. It was totaled. The remains sank to the bottom of the marina. Two other boats on each side were heavily damaged and another boat two slips away received cosmetic damage. The boat was scheduled to be hauled out of the water as part of the investigation. Total damages were estimated at $500,000. Damage to the dock was estimated at $35,000. Once fiberglass starts burning, its hard to put out, said Madeira Beach Fire Chief Derryl ONeal. ONeal said Madeira Beach Fire Department Engine 25 was the first on the scene and formed an attack line using foam. Its the best thing to use to put out a fire involving fiberglass, he said. Im not sure how much they used but I know Im going to be ordering more tomorrow. In addition to the four boats, there was minor damage to the dock area. Jeff Tobergte, an emergency response specialist with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said at least one of the boats leaked fuel into the water and a cleanup was started as quickly as possible. No estimates on the total damages were available.Photos by BOB McCLUREThe remains of a totaled 38-foot boat, left, sits submerged next to another damaged boat following an early-morning marina fire March 21 at 13205 Gulf Blvd. in Madeira Beach.The cleanup alone is going to be very expensive, ONeal said. Madeira Beach Marina LLC of Nashville, Tenn., owns the site. This Sea Ray boat was parked next to the submerged boat and sustained serious damages.

According to a police report, a couple staying in Room 75 of the Thunderbird Beach Resort, 10700 Gulf Blvd., stepped out of their room and when they returned the bag was missing. Items inside the stolen bag included $190 in cash, a fanny pack, a PNC bank card, a Royal Bank card, a Canadian health card and a Canadian passport. Police have no suspects or leads.Fishing gear reported stolenTREASURE ISLAND A Canadian visitor staying at a beach motel reported $124 worth of fishing gear stolen from outside her room. According to police, a 50-year-old woman staying at the Molloy Gulf Motel, 10164 Gulf Blvd., left two collapsible fishing rods, two reels and two tackle boxes outside her motel room on March 15. The gear was last seen at 4:45 p.m. and was discovered missing at 6 p.m. The investigation continues.Man arrested on warrant chargeTREASURE ISLAND An early morning walk on the beach turned out to be a bad decision for a 41-year-old Treasure Island man. Christopher Hickey, of 145 117th Ave., No. 2, was observed by police on the beach in the vicinity of 112th Avenue on March 16 at 3:12 a.m. When police checked his identification, they discovered a Pinellas County warrant for his arrest on a failure to appear in court on a charge of possession of a controlled substance. Hickey was transported to Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $50,030.Man arrested for sexual batteryCLEARWATER Pinellas County sheriffs detectives arrested a Clearwater man March 21 in connection with allegations of sexual battery on a child less than 12 years old. According to the sheriffs report, the unnamed female victim was age 9 at the time of the crime. She is now 14. Detectives say that Axmed G. Castillo, 44, admitted to the crime, which occurred at a private residence in Clearwater. They also say that Castillo and the victim were known to each other and the victim was in his care at the time the crime was committed. During the course of a separate investigation, involving a lewd and lascivious molestation on a minor, detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit learned that the suspect in that case had been arrested in 2008 by Clearwater Police Department for sexual performance by a child. Images of child pornography were found on that suspects computer. Upon reviewing the images in the Clearwater case, detectives were able to identify a previously unidentified victim. Through interviews with the victim and her mother, they determined that the 14-year-old girl had been sexually battered and photographed by Castillo when she was age 9. Detectives say Castillo has not at this time been linked to the lewd and lascivious battery case. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail on bond of $250,000. The investigation continues.Bicyclist dies after crash with vanST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County sheriffs deputies say that a bicyclist who rode into the path of a van March 18 has died. Roger L. Hiers, 54, of Gibsonton was pronounced dead at Bayfront Medical Center on Thursday, March 22. Deputies responded to a crash at about 11:25 p.m. Sunday, March 18, at Park Street, just south of Burning Tree in Seminole. According to deputies, the bicyclist and the driver of a 2001 Dodge van, John L. Collins, 52, of St. Petersburg were headed northbound on Park Street, when the bicyclist rode into the path of the van. Hiers was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of head injuries, characterized as life-threatening. Collins was not injured in the crash. Deputies say the area where the crash occurred was not very well lighted. Investigators also say alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash on the part of the bicyclist. There were no signs of impairment on the part of the vehicle driver. The medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of Hiers death.FHP cracks down on aggressive drivingMIAMI Cutting off a big truck could cost you a fine, if you survive. The Florida Highway Patrol announced at a March 21 news conference in Miami the second phase of Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks. From March 30 through April 4, troopers statewide will be on the lookout for car and truck drivers who commit violations attributed to aggressive driving such as: following too closely, unsafe lane change and speeding. In addition to targeted enforcement, the campaign will use billboard and radio messaging to increase awareness among car and truck drivers of safe driving behaviors around one another and of the heightened risk of receiving a ticket for a violation. FHP and the Florida Trucking Association also will conduct activities at schools and community centers around the state to educate drivers on how to share the road safely with trucks.

You see, he had been suffering with waves of shooting pain every day and night for over four weeks. Every couple of minutes the pain would shoot up from the back of his neck all the way to the top and both sides of his head. Of course the first thing he did was go to his doctor who then sent him to a neurologist. After a battery of tests, including an MRI of the brain (which was very normal), he was put on a strong medication that he took for a week. The medication did not stop the headaches, but also made him feel much worse. He decided it was time for a second opinion. The next neurologist also could not find anything abnormal, but recognized what was going on. She told him he needed to find a dentist that treated TMJ and Facial Pain Syndrome. He luckily found a dentist trained in Neuromuscular dentistry. The TMJ is basically the jaw joint. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ) is caused when your jaw (the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and muscles) is not in proper alignment. Signs and Symptoms A popping jaw is just one of the more obvious signs of TMJ. These symptoms may be attributed to a variety of causes making the TMJ diagnosis difficult. Such symptoms include recurring headaches; chronic pain in your face, neck or back; ringing in your ears and even tingling in your fingers. In fact, the symptoms are so diverse, they may be attributed to stress, injury or illness. Patients often seek the help of many specialists, from family physicians to chiropractors. Some are even advised to undergo irreversible surgical procedures, but the pain is never fully resolved. After the first appointment, our suffering patient was free of pain for the first time in over a month. By using the principles and techniques of neuromuscular dentistry, an appliance was fabricated which our patient is now wearing. When a call was made to see how he was doing, his wife joyfully announced the title of this article. Neuromuscular Dentistry We may have the gentle but effective solution you have been looking for. Here at About Smiles Dental, my staff and I have had years of training and experience in advanced neuromuscular dentistry to get your jaw in its proper alignment, relax your muscles and even make your smile look healthier and feel stronger; all done in a gentle, natural and non-invasive manner. Neuromuscular dentistry is a nonsurgical discipline used to diagnose and treat all kinds of trouble caused by malocclusion including TMJ through the gentle repositioning of the jaw. This repositioning can alleviate years of pain and discomfort. When Experience Matters!

Largo plans Pinellas Trail gateway at West Bay Drive By TOM GERMOND LARGO A restroom, parking area, landscaping and other improvements could be made along the Pinellas Trail where it intersects with West Bay Drive under a project city officials are considering. City commissioners voted 5-1 March 20 to authorize $79,809 for engineering work for the West Bay Drive area project. The purpose of the project is to provide trail access, enhance aesthetics and connect the trail to the downtown businesses, residential neighborhoods and premium transit routes, city officials said. The goal of the citys project is to create a gateway as well as a trailhead on the Pinellas Trail within the citys downtown, City Engineer Leland Dicus said. A large open right of way area where there is an opportunity for parking areas exists along 12th Street adjacent to the trail. Potential improvements include the installation of directional signs, street trees and landscaping and restrooms. Commissioner Curtis Holmes questioned the need for the project, voting against it. We are not Dunedin, we are not Tarpon Springs, we are not Palm Harbor. Because the difference of the trail in those communities is the trail literally goes through town. The Pinellas Trail doesnt go through any portion of the retail area of downtown Largo, he said. A frequent trail rider, Holmes said trail users are not going to go to Publix or a hardware store along West Bay Drive. I dont understand why we are trying to make the trail into something there is virtually no chance of it coming in to Largo, Holmes said. He asked if spending $80,000 from tax revenue generated downtown on the trail project is the best we can do for them. Cant we do something in the downtown that would be a little more beneficial to the people who have paid the tax into this thing? Thats my question, Holmes said. Stricklin said the overall reason why the city is undertaking the project is the city has an urban trail plan that was developed with a significant amount of citywide community input. They also conducted a district mobility study within downtown with targeted community input. And we found a real desire on the part of the community to have trail amenities, to have bicycle and pedestrian circulation throughout the entire district and to have the connections to the trail, Stricklin said. The project is in the medical arts district area that the city is trying to revitalize, she said. City officials believe that the project will assist in redevelopment, particularly in the 12th Avenue area, Stricklin said. Mayor Pat Gerard said she has ridden on the trail a lot and wishes there were more trailheads where riders could park their cars. Personally, I take my life in my hands riding my bicycle to get to the trail, she said, no matter which way I go because the sidewalk system is not there yet. Commissioner Woody Brown said the problem with the trail intersection at West Bay Drive is the flyover. Other communities that really benefit from the trail have groundlevel efficient connections to the trail, he said. Looking at the proposal, he said, its a reasonable idea. He also said that he thinks its one of the best uses of the downtown tax disPhoto by TOM GERMONDLargo officials may add parking areas and make other improvements along the Pinellas Trail at the intersection of West Bay Drive. trict revenue, connecting bicyclists and pedestrians to downtown. King Engineering Associates Inc. of Tampa will conduct the work, which includes presentation of the proposed alternatives at a public workshop to obtain community feedback. Preliminary engineering and property and easement acquisition are scheduled in fiscal year 2012, design in 2013 and construction in fiscal year 2014.Briey PSTA reports record numbersFor the third month in a row, Pinellas residents boarded PSTA buses in record setting numbers. For the month of February, more than 1.135 million rides were taken on PSTA, which is a 10.4 percent increase over the same period in 2011. This is an exciting trend that has our staff preparing for what could be the single highest ridership month in the agencys history, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. With tourism, the economy and gas prices all on the rise, theres a good chance that March ridership will be the highest monthly mark ever. March has traditionally been the agencys highest ridership month and holds the all time ridership record at just over 1.l68 million, which was set in March 2011. Since December, PSTA ridership is averaging a 7.5 percent increase over the same period last year. With all of our visitors in town and the kids being out of school for spring break, PSTA is great way to get to our award winning beaches while not having to deal with parking hassles and fees, said PSTA spokesman Bob Lasher. In Clearwater, beach goers can park free in the municipal parking garage at 640 Pierce Street and then walk next door to PSTAs Park Street Terminal where they can catch the Suncoast Beach Trolley to the beach.

Around PInellas Around PInellasPark impact fees too high, Largo saysLARGO City commissioners plan to waive impact fees pertaining to parks temporarily because of concerns that the fees are hindering residential development. Developers have brought such concerns to city officials. The parkland and capital facilities impact fees increase the developers cost basis by $1,800 and $2,600 per multi-family unit, which can substantially impact the feasibility of building a project in the city as opposed to another location where these costs are not present, city officials say. City commissioners March 20 gave staff the goahead to prepare an ordinance enacting a 24-month moratorium on the fees. During this time, city officials will include revisions to the fees as part of an update to their codes. As the real estate is recovering, there is significant interest in multi-family development, city Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said. There are several projects that you are aware of. She said city officials are hearing that the financial impact of the $1,800 to $2,600 per unit is really prohibitive for successful performance for multi-family projects, placing the city at a competitive disadvantage. Based on city officials calculations, a 300-unit apartment complex would pay a total of $559,656 or $1,866 per unit in parkland and facilities fees, assuming a 28 percent maximum credit authorized by city codes. The moratorium would apply to residential projects that obtain building permits during that 24month period and that would obtain certificates of occupancy within 12 months of the end of that period. Mayor Pat Gerard thanked staff for bringing the issue to the commission. Im in favor of it for at least two years . she said. It does make us a lot more competitive. City officials have acquired $1.35 million in parkland fees and $659,000 in facilities capital improvements fees. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he was in favor of the moratorium but asked how long will the $2 million in funds last. Stricklin said the last time the funds were used was for the development of Datsko Park, at 3099 Whitney Road, several years ago. I know the money is available for parks improvements, but it is not a fund that weve drawn on frequently, Stricklin said. City Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne added that whether the fund is enough depends on the location of the property and size so its kind of hard to tell you exactly. If the city were looking for a 20-acre property such as the citys strategic plan calls for east of U.S. 19, the $2 million would probably not be enough money, she said. Im still in favor of (the moratorium), Holmes said. City officials plan to bring the proposed ordinance on the moratorium to the commission during its second meeting in April for first reading. Tom GermondClearwater buys East Gateway land for future redevelopmentCLEARWATER Revitalizing the citys rundown East Gateway district is high on city officials todo list. And on March 15, the Clearwater City Council took a step in that direction by approving the purchase of a 6,300-square-foot property at 14 South Evergreen Ave., adjacent to the Car Pro property that the city bought in August 2010 for the purposes of environmental remediation and potential future redevelopment. The 12,000-square-foot Car Pro site, at 1359 Cleveland St., was purchased with money from a federal Environmental Protection Agency brownfield grant. Brownfields are defined as former industrial sites that are too polluted for further use without remediation of the pollutants. After years of automotive use, the Car Pro site was contaminated with motor oil, antifreeze and other automotive fluids. The city contracted with Cardno TBE to do the cleanup, which is still ongoing. Recently, the owner of the four parcels south of the Car Pro property died and his family decided to sell Parcels 19 and 20, totaling 6.300 square feet, adjacent to and south of the eastern half of the Car Pro site. On March 15, Gerri Campos Lopez, the citys director of economic development and housing, sought the City Councils permission to buy those parcels for $135,000, with closing costs not to exceed $10,000. The money will come from a federal Department of Housing and Urban Development grant. As you know, one of our key priorities is the East Gateway district, Lopez reminded the council members. These are funds that we have, and we have deadlines for spending them. But Mayor George Cretekos wondered about the strange shape that would be created when the rectangular Parcels 19 and 20 were added to one corner of the square Car Pro site. We have a square and now were making an L, he said. Lopez replied that she is hoping to buy parcels 17 and 18, which would give the city an even bigger square. But those parcels cannot be sold until the pollution on them is cleaned up. Unlike Parcels 17 and 18, which are lower than the Car Pro site and get the contaminated runoff from it, Parcels 19 and 20 are pollution-free because they are higher than the Car Pro site. Lopez said that there is a one-story office building on Parcels 19 and 20 that is in fairly good condition, and the city might lease it out until officials are ready to do something with the entire property. She estimated that it would take 18 to 24 months before the entire property is purchased and ready for redevelopment. Mayor Cretekos asked Lopez why, if it makes sense for the city to redevelop the property, a private developer hasnt already done it. She replied that no private developer would want to touch the property because of the environmental issues. Lopez added that the entire area will be much more marketable once the contamination from the Car Pro site has been cleaned up. The council unanimously gave Lopez the goahead to buy Parcels 19 and 20, and implied that it would also approve the purchase of Parcels 17 and 18 when they become available. Lester R. DaileyBluffs to fight $1.2 million pension payment orderBELLEAIR BLUFFS The city is ready to fight another round in the battle with its pension board and former firefighters over pension payouts. In a surprise move, the citys attorney in the matter asked for a hearing on a directive by the state Department of Management Services. It ordered the city to purchase retirement annuities for senior firefighters requesting them. The city had asked the state to settle the pension issue after failing to reach an agreement on the issue with its pension board. The action, which petitions the state for a formal administrative hearing, is the latest in a series of moves by the city that have delayed the final pension payouts. Meanwhile the cost of the annuities has risen to nearly $1.2 million, an amount approaching the citys entire annual budget, up from $700,000 a year ago. The rise in costs is due to fluctuating economic conditions. The city has about $2.5 million in reserve funds, money that is typically set aside to meet unexpected obligations, such as damage from major storms. In challenging the directive to pay the firefighter pensions, the city charges the state grievously expands the citys financial obligations and undermines the citys home rule authority, doing so without so much as a hearing. The city contends Florida law requires the ensuring of minimum benefits and standards for the operation and funding of firefighters pension trust funds. The petition asks the state to provide, at a minimum, a formal hearing to determine which option best ensures the minimum standards (required). The city has offered the firefighters substitute trusts, which are backed by the city, in place of annuities, which are purchased from insurance companies. The trusts would cost the city about half as much as annuities, but the firefighters consider the trusts less safe. The city pension board has backed the firefighters on the issue, and the petition accused the state of rubberstamping the Boards decision. The City Commission unanimously backed the request for a hearing at its regular meeting on March 19. Mayor Chris Arbutine said the city couldnt afford the annuities firefighters are requesting. He said the annuity payments would require spending $800,000 more than the substitute trusts offered by the city. We cant give a million dollar bonus to four firefighters just because they dont trust the city, Arbutine declared. The commission members agreed. Fire Commissioner Suzy Sofer said the annuity payments would likely require a tax increase. Sofer said she is willing to spend extra money on legal fees fighting the issue to protect the residents. The estimated cost of legal fees is $7,000 to $10,000, according to City Attorney Thomas Trask. Commissioner Jack Nazario said he favored a position that would require minimal costs to the taxpayer. However, former fire pension board member Dave Fynan said the city has watched the costs of the annuities rise from $700,000 to $1.2 million while doing nothing. You asked the state to decide the (pension) issue, then you disagreed with their decision, Fynan said. Now you want to wager taxpayer money that they may come up with a decision you like. Fynan urged the commission to go ahead and pay the firefighters annuities he said they are entitled to by law and stop the hemorrhaging of the citys resources. Naming each of the commission members, he said, You have a fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of Belleair Bluffs. Resident Will Miller, a former firefighter, said the city has had a poor showing in trying to buy off public employees on the cheap. Former Commissioner Dave Shimkus offered to try and negotiate a settlement between the city, the firefighters and the pension board. I dont want to spend another two-and-a-half years in legal fees on this, he said. The pension payment issue will now go before an administrative judge, Trask said. He estimated the matter would be settled in another 100 to 120 days. Wayne AyersNo relief for Biltmore ownersBELLEAIR Despite a personal appearance by one of the owners of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel asking for some relief from the fines levied against the Cabana Club property, Town Commissioners voted unanimously March 20 to reject the request. They made it clear to Daniel Ades that if he wanted to free the Cabana Club from the encumbrance he had better show up with some money. The Cabana Club is located on Sand Key, part of the city of Clearwater. But it was part of the package, along with the hotel and the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, bought by Daniel and his brother, Raphael Ades, 15 months ago. The town received a letter from Raphael Ades in late February asking that the Cabana Club be removed from the other two properties and taken out from under the $213,750 owed in fines. Daniel Ades admitted to the commission that the Cabana property is for sale and that process would be easier if the liens and fines didnt encumber it. The fines are piling up daily because of the state of the roof on the hotel. Ades estimated it would cost 3 or 4 million dollars to fix that, something he and his brother are not prepared to do because they just dont know if the hotel will even continue to exist. When questioned by Commissioner Kevin Piccarretto, who reminded Ades that they had promised to fix the roof when they bought the property, Ades replied, We wish to resolve the issue of the roof, but that doesnt mean we will repair it. In other words he said if the hotel is demolished, then the roof issue would be resolved. Brian Goff

10A Outdoors Beacon, March 29, 2012 032212 Kingfish take center stageThis past weeks kingfish bite was absolutely spectacular at times; kingfish averaging 8 to 15 pounds have been schooled up over hard bottom inside of a mile from shore. Anchoring and chumming with live pilchards or slow trolling with the same baits has been the key to success. When anchor fishing deploying a quality chum block will attract the kingfish and Spanish mackerel from great distances, while live bait chumming will often excite any fish in the area into a feeding frenzy. Wire stinger rigs with a short 3to 4-inch trailer hook are perfect for the larger pilchards. However if youre specifically targeting the larger fish you may want to extend that stinger to upwards of 6 inches in order to accommodate big baits such as live mullet, Spanish mackerel, shad or ladyfish. Cobia are around and can often show up while chumming kingfish. Also check near-shore structures artificial reefs channel markers and jetties. Although cobia are not a fish that you can count on every trip, spring time is often the most consistent, so it pays to have a rod always ready with a live bait rig consisting of a stout hook, 40 pound leader and cork pegged about 3 feet up the line. A chummed up cobia will rarely refuse any live offering. Inshore, trout and redfish have both been cooperating well on these new moon tides. Target deep-water flats directly adjacent to the extreme shallows on the low incoming tide, for a chance at both species. Spoil islands, no-motor zone flats and just about anywhere else that you can find clean, good moving water are potential hot-spots. Casting top-water lures first thing in the morning will help you locate active fish. Flats fish are much more active now than a few weeks ago, making them much more likely to respond to the loud commotion put out by the top-water plug. And as the tide peaks look for the redfish to really take to the mangroves. Spring high tides bring much more water than we had all winter and the redfish are definitely pushing way back under the mangroves at high tides as they search out crabs.

Bullie! meant the President had found something delightful. If those caricatures are accurate, our 26th President was our most effusive as well as effective leader to date. Teddys Bullie! perfectly describes our March weather. It also completely comprehends local seas now bubbling with bottlenose dolphin bulls. You cant tell the sex of the dolphin by looking at it. But bulls are the big beefy boys out there who presumably father each years crop of calves the year before. A recent sequence of surveys produced three days of different bulls pursuing what most guys pursue during spring break. Big and gnarly from past battles, distinct bulls Ouch and Fishlips harried local lady Q, then went on to haunt local lady Face. In nearby bays, other bulls danced similarly around other local ladies trying to go about their business. BB shadowed NF. N and Riptab shadowed Bet. Rippington did his best to hone in. DD2 waited on the sidelines for the lady of his choice. Typically, local dolphins begin returning to the shallow Intracoastal Waterways in March and increase in number throughout the summer. Because dolphin numbers have been down the last two years, I asked the data how this months march of bulls compared to previous years. They answered that our local waters are bullie in fairly definitive ways, for dolphins. Specifically, the bulls who appear each March have slowly but clearly switched from one superalliance to another. A super-alliance of bottlenose dolphin bulls is a troupe of dolphins that hang out together like fraternity brothers. Super-alliances tend to be comprised of two or more pairs of bonded bulls, who are duets of dolphins seen together most of the time. Duets are called alliances. Cooperating alliances form super-alliances. Cooperation, expressed as a united front against other pairs or super-alliances, ranges from fleeting to fixed. During the first years of the Johns Pass bridge facelift, the predominant super-alliance was comprised of two high-energy pairs of bulls, Edge and KK, and Cheetah and LA Cheetah. Edge was most pugnacious (Dolphin Watchs Barging in and out). Cheetah was the biggest (Dolphin Watchs Out of the blue). This rabble was ever ready for a fight. I think its fair to say that 2007 was the year that a bunch of our local boys coalesced their forces into a super-alliance too (BB, DD2, N, Riptab, Rippington, Lax, Midface and Scrapefin; Dolphin Watchs Dawn of Knowledge). Capt. John Heidemann and I refer to them collectively as the Bowery Boys. For the entire summer of 2007, our local waters lurched and skidded with dolphin bullpen politics between Edges blockade and the burgeoning Bowery Boys. Things changed by 2008. Only one of the four Edge combatants returned (KK). Threading through local waters, members of the Bowery Boys encountered only periodic pairs or lone bulls like scattered soldiers in the wake of war who left as quickly as they appeared. By 2009, the Bowery Boys had even less early competition. Just two bonded bull pairs appeared in March to establish any presence in local waters. In 2010, like soldiers roaming now-empty battlefields, the Bowery Boys had the March bays and bayous to themselves. The same situation prevailed in 2011. Reviewing this, I was reminded of two things. One thing is that, in Midwest marshes far removed from our local waters, spring heralds the establishment of breeding territories by glistening Photo by ANN WEAVERLocal bull Riptab, foreground, shows how dolphins get scarred over time as he swims with baby Ballou in the background, his probable offspring. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver red-winged black bird males. The males early appearance doesnt reflect the idea that the early bird gets the worm but rather first come, first served when the females return later that spring. IF the first bottlenose bulls to return in spring establish a presence against which all subsequently appearing bulls must compete, the Bowery Boys with the exception of Lax and Midface hit the mark this year. The other thing is the notable absence of our third super-alliance, the Punch Buddies. Evidently, March Madness isnt for them, but were watching. Ill wager theyre on their way. Not just saluting our competent and effervescent President Teddy Roosevelt in this season of human political wrangling, we must declare, Now, aint that just bullie! because the bulls ARE acting just like bulls and isnt that delightful!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Senior leadershipSeminole High School baseball standout Adam Atkinson inspires, motivates Photo by BRAD RICHARDSONSeminole High School first baseman-pitcher Adam Atkinson is hitting .324 with a .514 slugging percentage. By BRAD RICHARDSONSEMINOLE Motivation is found in many ways and for Seminole High School senior Adam Atkinson, it comes in the form of quiet leadership on a young, vibrant baseball team. Atkinson, a first baseman-pitcher who is hitting .324 with a .514 slugging percentage, is part of the core infield that has helped Seminole to the top spot in the Class 7A-District 10 standings. Atkinsons baseball story starts before he ran onto a baseball field. He started in karate and received his black belt at 8. Four years later, he was influenced by his parents, Gina and Thomas, to pick up a bat and glove and try out for Little League at SYAA. He even decided to play one season of football. The love of the game is many things. Its the feeling of just playing, having fun and making friends, said Atkinson. Football is war and baseball is a mental war. Football is more of the fun that comes with running and tackling someone, but with baseball, it has to be watched always because it changes at any time. Throughout middle and high school, there were many things he had to keep Atkinson on his toes. He said that the hardest thing he constantly has to deal with as a student athlete is keeping his grades up and dealing with the constant distractions and yelling from coaches that happen on the field during a game. Personally school isnt very hard, sometimes its just easier to slack off, Atkinson said. But being on the team has helped keep myself in line. When you flub up its a hurtful feeling. If I wasnt getting the job done on the field I guess its someone elses spot to take over. In 2009, he wanted to try out for the high school baseball team because he felt he was ready. Although he did feel his chances were slim and unfortunately was not able to make it his freshman year. He triumphantly made the cut in 2010 during his sophomore year, but at the same time did not expect to see the field or the plate that much. When he got his first time up to bat during the season, he was hit in the elbow by the first pitch and had to sit out for two weeks. The Warhawks season came to an abrupt end after a loss to King High School in the regional finals. It was discouraging for me to be sitting on the bench and because of that I think I coped with it too well, Atkinson said. I just kind of took it instead of going out and fighting people for their spots, but at this moment I cant look back and have any regrets, even getting beaned in my elbow. After a recovery during the summer and playing winning-inning baseball with Coach Tom Beck, Atkinson moved into the starting lineup in 2011. Within those times, he looked back at the advice he received in Little League from Coach Ira Berman. He told him to always have a positive outlook with the game and life and if Atkinson was doing something wrong, he would set him straight. Head Coach Jeff Pincus said Atkinson, along with captains Jordan Doyle and Brett Phillips, is a pivotal part of the senior leadership by helping to keep the underclassman inline to lead by example with hard work and not slack off. Adam brings a great amount of leadership qualities by his presence as he gives 100 percent on the field, Pincus said. He has the presence where he doesnt have to yell or do something to get his point across and as a motivator will tell someone if they are doing something wrong. See ATKINSON, page 19A

The award places Folden in the top 100 Realtors for Coldwell Banker in the state of Florida. Folden has been a Realtor in the Belleair office for more than 20 years.Coldwell names listing, sales leadersCLEARWATER The Coldwell Banker office in Clearwater recently announced its top sales and listing associate. Sue Flaig was the top sales associate and the top listing associate in February.Organization reports February real estate statistics The Pinellas County Realtor Organization recently released its monthly report, detailing real estate statistics for February 2012. According to the organization, the decrease in listings continued in February and is starting to get to concerning levels. Active inventory shrunk and nondistressed properties continue to increase their lead. Just over 21 percent of available homes are short sales and foreclosures, a full 6 percent decrease over last February. According to Leon Sarkisian, 2012 PRO chairman of the board, and Realtor with Prudential Tropical Realty, properties that have been on the market for an extended period of time are starting to get interest from buyers. Sarkisian went on to say that many homeowners are too nervous to sell their existing homes for fear of not being able to get financing on a new home. In the overall residential market, sales were up about 2 percent from February 2011 to February 2012. However, for the same time period the median sales price was up almost 18 percent. This may indicate the low inventory is starting to drive prices higher, as pending sales are up 10 percent and listings are down 34 percent according to the report. Single-family sales are up only about 1.5 percent from February 2011 to February 2012. The median sales price for the single-family market is up almost 20 percent. Pending sales are up 8 percent while the months supply of inventory is down almost 40 percent from February 2011 to February 2012. The condo market had an almost 3 percent increase in sales over the last year but only 8 percent increase in the median sales price. Active condo listings are down almost 27 percent for the same time period. Prudential announces appointmentsPALM HARBOR Prudential Tropical Realty recently announced two management appointments. Prudential appointed Ginger McQuigg vice president and director of PTR residential sales operations. McQuigg has served as market president of the companys Countryside, East Lake and Tarpon Springs offices and will continue in that role. She has been a real estate professional for more than 25 years and a part of Prudentials management team since 2006. Relying on her years of experience, McQuigg will focus her leadership, sales and organizational skills on building the companys real estate sales force. Prudential also appointed Rob Hilliker vice president and director of Capstone Tropical Holdings Core Services Integration. Hilliker has served as vice president of sales and marketing for Prudential Tropical Realty since 2008. He previously was the market president of the firms New Tampa office for five years. Hilliker joined Prudential Tropical Realty in 2001 as a real estate professional and has more than 25 years of experience.

Ive been noticing all the recent ads for diseases Id never before heard of. So I placed a call to Dr. Rodney Whiffletree, chairman of the Disease and Drug Propagation (DDP) section of the American Pharmaceutical Lobby, whose headquarters are in Marilyn, Md. Heres how the conversation went: Q. Doctor, whats behind all these new ailments and diseases were being warned about? A. Some of them are new and some arent, but the public needs to know about them so they can find a remedy. Q. Let me guess: the remedy is almost always a new drug made by the pharmaceutical companies, right? A. Correct. Q. Im especially interested in the disease known as uromysitisis. Your advertisement says it occurs in shoppers who allow their urinary bladders to get too full while searching for their missing cars in parking garages. A. Thats right. You may have heard uromysitisis mentioned on one of Jerry Seinfelds programs. Q. But that was fiction. The ailment was also fiction. Do you mean to say the DDP would promote an imaginary disease just to sell a new drug? A. Off the record, the U.S. drug industry will do almost anything to sell its drugs. Q. Even if people dont really need them? A. But the people do need them. They just dont know it yet. Thats the job of my department to wake up the public to its unrealized needs. For example, have you noticed the new testosterone advertisements? Theyre all over the place. Q. Yes. They say that most of the worlds men need to have their testosterone levels raised, in order to improve their sex lives. But is that actually true? A. Essentially, yes. Deep in their hearts (or in other parts of their bodies) almost everyone wants a better sex life. The goal of Big Pharma is to produce drugs that will increase testosterone levels, and thus stimulate sex drive. Q. But what about these other newly discovered ailments? A. Such as? Q. Such as meliframozilch. The ads say its a stomach disease that afflicts Armenian cotton farmers in Alabama who eat deep-fried grits. But there are no Armenian cotton farmers in Alabama. A. Youre wrong. We found four, and they all suffered from meliframozilch. So we came up with a remedy, a drug called Fimrastopol. We ran eight million dollars worth of ads and scared the daylights out of every cotton farmer in the South. Now Fimrastopol is flying off the shelves. Q. It sounds unethical to me to find some obscure disease and then magnify it to the point where millions of otherwise healthy people are panicked into buying a drug they dont really need. A. You may be right, but the guilt belongs just as much to the advertising industry as to Big Pharma. The main goal of advertising is (and always was) to persuade people to spend money on things they dont really need. Q. What are some of the other fairly useless drugs youre most proud of? A. Our latest is Dolcevik sugar-free pills (costing $12.50 for a 20-count package) that guard you against developing hyperglycinema. Q. Whats that? A. Its a blood condition that comes from eating too much candy when youre watching a movie. Millions of people have it but dont realize it, especially when its a long movie such as Gone With the Wind. Dolcevik pills are shaped just like M&Ms, and you can eat just as many as youd like without screwing up your blood sugar level. And when the movie ends you feel so virtuous. Q. And poor? At $12.50 for 20 pills? A. Yes, but nobody twists your arm to buy Dolcevik. Q. When Big Pharma announces a new drug, the initial newspaper or magazine ad may occupy a full page telling the many wonders of the drug. But this is followed by two or three pages listing the hundreds of harmful side effects that may result from taking it. Arent the drug companies afraid these warnings will scare off the public? A. Big Pharma has no choice. The Food and Drug Administration requires us to list all the adverse side effects that occurred during testing of the drug. But the beauty of this is that people either dont believe the warnings or simply choose to ignore them. Americans love their drugs. In many cases, too much. Q. An investigative reporter, Alison Bass, has written a book, Side Effects, that tells of the lying and trickery drug companies pulled off in connection with the psychiatric drugs Prozac and Paxil. Its rumored that a movie version of the book may result. Would that disturb you, Doctor? A. Yes, indeed. Ill admit it. But it wont really change anything. As long as many of todays drugs are genuinely beneficial, people will tend to overlook the ones that are fraudulent or unnecessary. Human nature always prevails. So does Big Pharmas money. Weve got tons of it.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net.Some new drugs for new diseasesWrong attitude toward emergency servicesEditor: While I agree with the writer about drivers who think we want to share their choice of music, whether we like it or not, I must disagree with his other views. If he doesnt like the sound of trash cans or dumpsters being emptied would he rather drive his rubbish in his car to a dump site and get rid of it himself? What perturbed me most though was his attitude to emergency services. The FD boys and gals are required to have their lights on and their siren sounding when they are answering a 911 call. This is for the safety of other road users, to warn them and allow them to safely get out of the way. Unfortunately, they often need to use the horn as well to alert the loud music people or the insular, Its my lane and Im not moving, types. One wonders, from his comments, could the writer be one of those? When a 911 call has been downgraded to a non-emergency, they shut down the lights and sirens but they still continue to the location; they dont stand around catching up with Sunstar. If the writer doesnt like living in an urban setting, with the accompanying noise, perhaps he should move to a rural area where peace prevails. I hope he doesnt complain though when it takes the FD boys and gals the 40 minutes rural response time to get to him when his house catches fire, he is involved in a serious traffic accident or he has a heart attack. I was lucky; they were with me in 4 minutes when I had my heart attack because I live exactly between two Largo firehouses and those wonderful people saved my life. Every time I hear the sirens leaving either fire house (which I do), I think, Thank goodness, they are helping someone who needs them, not what a noise! Sheila Jackson LargoAmericans hate changeEditor: Im so damn sick of all the political spin artists inflaming citizens about gas costs. We complained bitterly when gas was rationed in the 1970s; ditto when gas breached $2.34 a gallon. Yet somehow we managed and moved on. Now we grumble and crouch because some liar on the political stump promises $2.50 a gallon for gas, and in the next breath tries to shift the blame to President Obama for the rising cost of gasoline. Guess what? Well continue to gripe and groan, but somehow figure out how to manage, and move on. But the real question is, will we ignore the spin artists and come to realize the awful truth about gas prices; its the result of free markets (which conservatives claim will solve everything including warts and flatulence), and theres little that government can do (even Bill OReilly has told us so) especially given the state of U.S. politics. If the cost of gasoline is so critical to your lifestyle, there are a few things you can do to lessen the burden: Drive a smaller, more efficient vehicle (no way, those euro-boxes arent safe). Slow down (yeah, right Ill be three minutes late for my hair appointment!). Carpool (oh the horrors give up my freedom!). Use public transportation (with all those stinking low-lifes besides, its so slow!). Check your tires daily (whats a tire them little round thingees that touch the ground?). Service your vehicle like the manufacturer recommends (huh service, whats that?). Ride a bike (what, Ill sweat, and theres no showers at work). Walk if its a mile or less (walk are you nuts, Ill ruin my $200 shoes!), etc. We Americans hate change, especially when it means we have to learn a new way to do something. Our love affair with the automobile is coming to an end. Stop griping and groaning and get used to it, deal with it. There are more important things in life. Mike MacDonald Clearwater Among its dubious achievements this year, the Florida Legislature passed a law authorizing random drug tests for state workers. Guess whos exempt? Lawmakers themselves. So now the clerk down at the DMV gets to pee in a cup but not the knuckleheads in Tallahassee who control $70 billion in public funds. Whom do you think is more dangerous to the future of Florida? In the session that just ended, the Legislature jacked up tuition on state college students while creating a new university to placate one cranky senator. It threw more than 4,400 state workers out of their jobs while handing out more than $800 million in tax breaks to businesses. Clearly, legislators are impaired. Is it meth? Coke? Mushrooms? Well never know. A few months ago, I offered to pay for drug tests for all 160 state senators and representatives. The deal was that all of them had to do it. Not a penny of taxpayer money would be spent. Shockingly, the Republican leadership showed zero interest in my proposal. However, they were very excited about Gov. Rick Scotts plan to impose mandatory urine-testing on welfare applicants, who statistically use drugs at a lower rate than the public. That particular law is currently stalled in the courts because of serious constitutional questions, which is where the new statute will end up as well, if Scott signs it. Meanwhile, lets hear from its proud sponsor, Rep. Jimmie Smith of Lecanto, which is near Inverness, which is sort of near Wildwood. Smiths Web page says hes a security officer who is retired from the Army. He has been in the Legislature about 18 months. This is not to do drug testing because theyre state workers, he said. This is to do drug testing for one problem: Drugs in Florida. The new law would allow state agencies to randomly test up to 10 percent of their workers every three months. Failing one test can get you fired; the present law requires treatment after the first positive urine screen. An amendment that would have included drug-testing the governor and lawmakers was indignantly rejected. Political theater, whined Rep. Smith. It was found to be unconstitutional to drug-test elected officials because it prevents us, as citizens, from having that First Amendment right. Based on that fog-headed explanation, which not even Cheech could explain to Chong, Smiths urine should be the first to get screened. He was attempting to reference a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down a Georgia law requiring political candidates not just elected officials to take drug tests. The ruling wasnt based on the First Amendment but on the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Its the same constitutional provision at the core of multiple legal challenges to Scotts drug-testing initiatives. While private companies may screen employees whether or not there is cause or reasonable suspicion, the judiciary often takes a dim view when government tries that. A few Florida lawmakers pointed out the hypocrisy of excluding themselves from a statewide drug-testing program. I have to conclude that this is an elitist body not prepared or courageous (enough) to lead by example. Shame on you, Rep. Mark Pafford, a Democrat from West Palm Beach, told his colleagues. Carlos Trujillo, a Republican from Miami, agreed that the governor and elected officeholders should be drug-tested with other state workers. Still he voted to ice the amendment, citing concerns over the Georgia ruling. That decision, written for the majority by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, criticized the Georgia law because it diminishes personal privacy, and was mainly a symbolic remedy to a situation that hadnt even been documented drug use among political candidates. Ironically, the same argument can be made against random testing of Florida employees. Jimmie Smith and other supporters of the bill didnt produce any proof that drug abuse was rampant in the state work force. They just wanted to look like tough guys. The High Court has sanctioned government drug-testing for certain professions in which public safety is at stake. For example, a train engineer may be ordered to submit a urine sample even if theres no indication of a substance problem. You could make a strong case that lawmakers fall into the same high-risk category, considering the damage they do in their annual train wreck known as the Legislative session. The offer still stands. Ill pay for every one of them to pee in a cup. The governor, too. In fact, well let him go first.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563What do you think?LETTERS Drivers SeatBob Driver Carl HiaasenThe tragic killing of Trayvon Martin is much more than a heartbreaking story about a vacationing teenager, who, while walking to a convenience store to buy his brother some candy, was shot dead by an overenthusiastic neighborhood watch leader. The shooting in Sanford is tearing at the social fabric of Florida. For it reminds us that deep-seated racism can rise in a flash when someone in authority thinks someone who looks different, looks suspicious. And its a reminder of how easy Florida has made it to kill someone in the name of self-defense. Floridas Legislature is so obsessed with the right to bear arms that it allows anyone, at any time, in any place, to conceal a gun and if they feel threatened, shoot to stand their ground. Our right to bear arms was meant for true self-protection, not to shoot first and ask questions later. Since passage of the stand your ground law, a gun-toting bravado has emerged that is elevating neighborhood disputes into bloodbaths. Someone took a swing at you at the playground, as happened last year in Tampa? Shoot em. Self defense. No charges filed. Another senseless death. Martins death also should make Florida rethink the idea of allowing gun-toting civilians to act as the eyes and ears of the police. At a minimum, better supervision is needed of neighborhood watch members. Better yet, let trained officers conduct police work, not wannabe cops living out fantasies on patrol in their neighborhoods. Almost a month after the shooting, you would have thought that the shooter, George Zimmerman, would be charged with something. After all, when a civilian shoots another civilian they are generally charged and a jury weighs any claim of self-defense. But in Sanford, the shooters word is golden and he remains free. On Monday, at long last, Gov. Rick Scott ordered a state investigation of the shooting as well as the initial investigation by local law enforcement. Beyond the gun-toting culture thats arisen in Florida, the overlying issue in the shooting of Trayvon Martin is racism. Zimmerman grew suspicious because he saw a young black teen not known in the neighborhood. It was raining, Zimmerman said, and Martin wasnt hurrying along. For that, he attracted attention. And now he is dead. Florida is a balkanized state of races and ethnicities. When you live here, people categorize you as something. After moving from upstate New York, I learned I am a White and a Jew. Bigoted classmates have called my adopted daughter from Cambodia, who is darkskinned, the n-word a number of times. Despite the influx of millions of residents from across the country, Florida remains part of the Deep South and racism continues to be a powerful evil. The shooting of Trayvon Martin reveals the institutionalized racism that remains embedded in Floridas culture, a stain on everyday life, more than 150 years after the Civil War.Steven Kurlander blogs at Kurlys Kommentary, writes a weekly column for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel and is a South Florida communications strategist.

ROOTH GILBERT J. ROOTH 18A Health and FitnessNo, it is not a brown recluse spider bite; it may be a StaphylococcusIt starts with a small red bump or a sore with fluid or pus. The next day its the size of a quarter, red, swollen, hard and tender to the touch. A hole or ulcer typically appears in the middle of the abscess on day three. Most people jump to the conclusion theyve been bitten by a brown recluse spider. In the United States, the native range of the brown recluse spider lies from the Midwest to the southern states of Kentucky, central Texas and western Georgia. They are not native to Florida. The brown recluses bite has venom capable of causing tissue death. This potential threat is the reason for its notoriety and common misdiagnosis. Then what do I have? A wound culture is the only way to tell for sure. Everyone has staph or strep growing on their skin. Our bodies have adapted to most of these bacteria and we live in relative peace and harmony with these bugs. There is, however, one strain of bacterial infection that is resistant to most antibiotics available to modern medicine. The perpetrator is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA. Once a rarity, MRSA has become so ubiquitous that public health isolation protocols are no longer in place. Conditions that help to spread MRSA include: close skin-to-skin contact, sharing of personal hygiene articles such as razors and towels, contact with contaminated items including door handles and athletic equipment. Symptoms may occur in areas that are cut, rubbed or have more body hair. Do not try to drain or pop open the sore. The lesion may need to be drained in a health care setting and most certainly will require antibiotic treatment either by mouth or intravenously in a hospital setting for more serious infections. If treatment for a skin MRSA infection is not sought, it may lead to life threatening infections. Once infected with MRSA, an individual is susceptible to future infections for life. The key to preventing MRSA is to practice good hygiene. Keep your hands clean by washing thoroughly with soap or with an alcohol based hand sanitizer, cover up all wounds, avoid contact with other peoples wounds and avoid sharing objects such as towels and razors.Dr. George Kamajian practices at 20001 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores.

The event will include former Olympians honorary chair Brooke Bennett and Janel Jorgensen, and will take place Saturday, May 5, 8:30 a.m., on Clearwater Beachs Pier 60. Swimmers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate as fundraisers in the one mile or half mile course. They can swim as individuals or as part of a team in honor of friends and loved ones who have fought, or are fighting, a battle with cancer. Participants pledge to raise a minimum of $500 (adults age 19 and older), or $250 in donations. The pledges collected by the swimmers, corporate sponsors, and online donations will benefit metastatic melanoma research led by Shari Pilon-Thomas, Ph.D., at Moffitt Cancer Center. Florida has one of the highest incidence rates of melanoma in the country, and new therapies are desperately needed for the treatment of metastatic melanoma, said Pilon-Thomas. Moffitt Cancer Center is a leader in offering novel therapies for patients who have no other treatment options. Funding from Swim Across America would support a clinical trial combining multiple cutting-edge strategies to use the immune system to fight metastatic melanoma. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Swim Across America in Moffitts mission to contribute to the cure of cancer. Following the swims, there will be a celebration and awards ceremony for swimmers, their families and friends. Researchers and medical staff from Moffitt Cancer Center are scheduled to be on hand to discuss how the money raised will be used by their laboratories in the fight against cancer. Swim Across America Inc. is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming-related events.

For information, visit www.clearwatercoalition.org.Center to offer balance screenBELLEAIR To help prevent falls among older adults, free balance screens will be offered through April at Belleair Health Care Center, 1150 Ponce De Leon Blvd. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths and nonfatal injuries for persons aged 65 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The center will offer a free computerized balance screen to determine all fall risks using a new and advanced technology called a Biosway balance device. According to the centers department of rehabilitation, it only takes a patient two minutes standing on a Biosway platform to determine the ability to maintain safe balance. The system provides a clinical printed report that can be given to physicians and then used to implement a wide variety of balance-related exercises. A patient can then learn new balance strategies via biofeedback from a computerized screen that shows how to correct instability. The interactive standing platform is used in therapy to show righting ability onto the computer screen and allows patients to improve their balance during the course of their therapy. So many of our patients have lost their confidence with basic ambulation, said Steve Lomonico, administrator for Belleair Health Care Center, in a press release. Ultimately, we hope to make people safer and restore their self-assurance. To schedule a free balance screen, call 585-5491.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesBeacon Section B March 29, 2012Visit www.TBNweekly.com This weeks top events Yesterday and Today Friday, March 30, 7 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets are $27 in advance and $32 the day of the show. Call 587-6793. The national touring sensation, Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience, is unique, standing apart from any other Beatles tribute out there. The band does away with the wigs and the accents and just concentrates on the Beatles music. The audience is encouraged to fill out a request form with their favorite Beatles song and reason why they chose the song. Those requests are organized five minutes before show time. The audiences requests make the set list for the evening and their stories provide the evenings narrative. Creedence Clearwater Revisited Friday, March 30, 8 p.m., at the Mahaffey Theater, Progress Energy Center for the Arts, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets range from $45 to $65. Call 892-5767 or visit www.themahaffey.com. Stu Cook and Doug Cosmo may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits. Though the pair initially only planned to play private parties, Creedence Clearwater Revisited now performs up to 100 shows a year and has released the album Recollection, certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2008. Having now toured North America, South America, New Zealand, Europe and Asia, knocking out audiences with astounding concerts jam packed with songs that are still a staple of radio and movie soundtracks, Creedence Clearwater Revisited has come a long way. Fiddler on the Roof, Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31, at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Show times are Friday, 8 p.m.; and Saturday, 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets range from $50 to $70. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Starring John Preece as Tevye, the national touring production of Fiddler on the Roof brings the wit and wisdom of its central character to area audiences in three performances. Tevyes wrestling with the new customs of a younger generation is punctuated by an unforgettable score that weaves the haunting strains of Sunrise, Sunset and the rousing If I Were A Rich Man with the exuberant Matchmaker, Matchmaker and triumphant Tradition. When his daughters choose suitors who defy his idea of a proper match, Tevye comes to realize, through a series of incidents that are at once comic and bittersweet, that his children will begin traditions of their own. At the storys close, the villagers of Anatevka are forced to leave their homes and even the sturdy mores that have guided everyday life begin to crumble. Paradoxically, it is the enforced loss of the rigid traditions and home life that Tevye has tried so tenaciously to preserve that leads the family to reconcile and draw closer still. Suzy Bogguss Saturday, March 31, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets range from $25 to $35. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Bogguss knows that folk songs are the scrapbook of the American experience but as music education fades from the public school system, she found herself worrying that these beautiful melodies are in danger of being overlooked. Thats why she resolved to record these timeless songs in an updated but reverent way so that everyone can sing along on songs like Red River Valley. The platinum selling songstress already has a full bookshelf of Grammy and CMA awards. With the release of American Folk Songbook, she can put her own book up there, too. The CD and companion songbook was released last July at all Cracker Barrel Country Stores followed by a wide release to other retail and digital outlets. The release is the natural By LEE CLARK ZUMPEPINELLAS PARK The 15th annual Crawfish Festival will run Friday through Sunday, March 30 through April 1, at Cajun Caf on the Bayou, 8101 Park Blvd. Admission at the gate is $15 on Friday, $20 on Saturday and $15 on Sunday. Advance tickets are $10 for Friday, $15 for Saturday, $10 for Sunday or $25 for a three-day pass. Advance tickets are available online at etix.com. The highlight of the festival: those tasty freshwater crustaceans that look like miniature lobsters, served up in authentic Cajun and Louisiana style. When in season, Cajun Caf offers boiled crawfish as a dine-in special, available only as long as the supply lasts. The generous helping is served piping hot with corn on the cob, potatoes, onions and bay leaves. Though Cajun Caf on the Bayous inside dining area is closed to the general public during the festival, most Cajun Caf menu items will be available for purchase from the food windows. The caf will reopen for normal business Wednesday, April 4. Since it doesnt seem right to partake in this uniquely Cajun experience without musical accompaniment, organizers have lined up fitting entertainment in the form of zydeco music and dancing.Zydeco band lineupZydeco evolved in the bayou country of Louisiana in the 19th century, derived from Creole musical traditions. It combines tunes of French origin with elements of Caribbean music, blues and roots music. Some of todays zydeco artists embrace modern genre components, as well, such as soul, reggae, hip-hop and ska. Scheduled to perform at this years Crawfish Festival are the Pine Leaf Boys, Lil Brian & the Zydeco Travelers, Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse, JBs ZydecoZoo and Ramblegrass Band. Louisianas Pine Leaf Boys have made a name for themselves, racking up five Grammy nominations and two Cajun French Music Association Awards. Known for wild shows and thoughtful arrangements, the band presents its own incomparable brand of Cajun music with youthful fervor as they revive obscure songs of past masters and add them into their repertoire. According to the bands website, the Pine Leaf Boys strive to present the beautiful, powerful music of their ancestors and present the real Cajun music to the world and prove that it is still thriving and full of life. Lil Brian couldnt help but fall in love with zydeco: He is related to twoCajun cuisine J.B.s ZydecoZoo performs Friday, March 30, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the 15th annual Crawfish Festival at the Cajun Caf on the Ba you, 8101 Park Blvd. of the genres most respected accordionists, John and Geno Delafose. Drawn to the music, Lil Brian attended Buckwheat Zydecos shows in Houston as a youngster, eventually becoming a pupil of Stanley Buckwheat Dural. In the mid 1990s, Lil Brian & the Zydeco Travelers were signed by Rounder Records and recorded their first two albums, Fresh and Z-Funk. In this milieu, Lil Brian & The Travelers have nurtured a reputation as the most innovative and musically accomplished zydeco band on the scene, drawing on contemporary urban sounds while paying reverential tribute to their cultural roots. Lil Brian and the Zydeco Travelers takes the stage Friday, March 30, at the Crawfish Festival.

PETE BEACH Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors, producer of some of the nations finest juried art shows and craft festivals, will present the ninth annual St. Pete Beach Corey Area Spring Craft Festival Saturday and Sunday, March 31 and April 1, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Corey Avenue east of Gulf Boulevard in downtown St. Pete Beach. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. Sponsored by the Corey Avenue Merchants Association, this family-friendly craft event has become a tradition. The association sponsors a variety of community programs throughout the year, showcasing local and national artists and crafters. This year, dozens of the nations best contemporary crafters and artists will display their creations amidst Corey Avenues shops and restaurants. This upscale event literally transforms Corey Avenue into an outdoor craft gallery. The open-air show will feature quality affordable crafts handmade in America. A full range of craft art mediums will be exhibited and shoppers will find everything from folk art, pottery and handmade jewelry to paintings, personalized gift items and scented soaps available for purchase. The event also will include a Green Market with exotic and unique plants. Arts and crafts collectors will find treasures priced for as little as $3 to as much as $3,000. Attendees will find that all of the work exhibited and available for purchase at the festival is original and handmade in America. Festival-goers can even mingle with the participating crafters. Among this years participants is Pat Van Voorhis of Madeira Beach. Her beaded items range from salad sets and bottle stoppers to purse charms and letter openers. Van Voorhis has been designing jewelry pieces since 2006. She began making them for herself, but soon found a she was developing a long list of potential customers. Friends were soon asking for my pieces and I was happy to create for them, Van Voorhis writes in her artist bio. Then I started creating decorative cutlery, including stainless steel salad sets, canap sets, and bottle stoppers. The artists materials primarily consist of lampwork glass, porcelain, shell, ceramic, crystal and stainless steel. I also use other artisan glass to design and create my pieces, she writes. Michael McLaughlin of Bradenton Beach has been creating his unique and intricate pieces of jewelry for many years. Specializing in bracelets, he fashions unique wire sculpture jewelry, using only quality materials such as sterling silver, 14-karat gold-filled wire and genuine gemstones. I am constantly creating new and interesting kinds of jewelry, McLaughlin writes on his website. Keeping ahead of the curve is just natural. Like many of Floridas seasonal residents, Chris Adamo splits his time between his home in Cape Cod and his winter escape in Sarasota. Together with his wife Nancy, Chris creates and sells unique handcrafted jewelry. But the Adamos idea of running a business didnt include the brick and mortar model. Instead, they opted to sell their creations online and at local craft and artisan fairs. The result is Inspired, distinctive jewelry crafted from the finest gemstones, crystals and silver. We take our inspiration from the beautiful coastal areas where we live, Chris says on his website, but, also in the beauty and spirituality of the natural world around us. Lake County resident Mike Awalt worked for three decades in the refrigeration industry before realizing his dream of producing art with copper. Life in Florida has influenced his work. Awalt has created artistic impressions of herons, palm trees, lighthouses and mangroves. Katherine Weisinger uses real flowers and leaves in her jewelry.

Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanitys lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus godly son, Ares (Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans strength grows stronger as Zeus remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Pike), Poseidons demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

By the time she formed her second band, Angelle started showcasing a wider spectrum of styles, including hip-hop and zydeco. A meeting with Mike Lachney of Bad Weather Productions put her on track to taking the zydeco circuit by storm. Six CDs later, Angelle and her Zydeco Posse are known as a high-energy band that knows how to keep its audience on its feet and begging for more. Not all zydeco bands are based in the Creole counties of Louisiana and Texas: J.B.s ZydecoZoo hails from Florida. Pianist John Babich J.B. was so enamored with the city of New Orleans and its musical heritage that he felt compelled to acquire an accordion and start playing zydeco shows in Tallahassee. After attending Florida State Universitys School of Music in the 1970s, Babich became a touring musician and played in several bands. He recorded five albums with Bill Wharton. In 2002, J.B.s ZydecoZoo was born, debuting with a concert at an American Legion Hall in Tallahassee. Our music is high energy, rockin, rhythmic zydeco in the vein of Beau Jocque, Clifton Chenier, C.J. Chenier, Rockin Dopsie and Stanley Dural Jr., Babich says in his bands biography. Also, my debut CD release J.B.s ZydecoZoo, contains 10 smokin original Zydeco tunes. Rounding out the festival lineup is Tampa Bays own Ramblegrass Band, a bluegrass/jamgrass outfit featuring Bob Edwards on guitar, Mike Godwin on banjo, Phil Myers Jr. on mandolin and Jack Ray on standup bass.
