VIEWPOINTSBill CotterellPrepare for major mudslinging, columnist says. Page 15A. Sheets to step down as rec director By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The city has begun a search for a new recreation director following the announcement May 22 that Jim Sheets plans to leave the city to pursue a private business venture. Sheets, who will continue with the city through August, plans to form a company to manage youth triathlons in Florida. Im following my passion of pursuing multi-event management, Sheets said. Its something Ive been working on in my spare time. Im excited to have the opportunity to take on a new challenge, he added. Its an opportunity to follow my dream. Im actually calling it semi-retirement. Jim has been a terrific recreation director for us, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. He has worked hard to develop the program to where it is today. He is an enthusiastic supporter of public recreation. We appreciate Jims willingness to stay with us through our summer program and special events. I wish him continued success in his future endeavors. Edmunds said a search for a replacement would begin immediately. The position requires a bachelors degree in parks and recreation administration, leisure services or physical education; and a minimum of five years experience in recreation administration with three years in a supervisory capacity. Thesalary range is $59,825 to $86,747. Sheets, 51, joined the city in 2000 as director of the recreation. Over the past 12 years he has expanded the programs available for both adults and children. Each year he has coordinated the citys Pow Wow Festival and for the past seven years has served as race director for the annual Try If You Dare Kids Triathlon. Sheets also formed the Seminole Landsharks youth triathlon team, which has grown from 12 triathletes in 2005 to 36 this year. He also has been responsible for obtaining about $400,000 in grants for the city and expanded the citys senior program. In 2008-09 he served as president of the Florida Recreation and Park Association. Prior to joining the city, Sheets worked a year as assistant parks and recreation director for the city of Coral Gables. He served as a recreation program manager for the city of Largo from 1996 to 1999. Following his graduation from Ohio State University, he worked in clubhouse services for nine years at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, and was club manager of the Country Club of the North in Beavercreek, Ohio, from 1993 to 1996. By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE City Manager Frank Edmunds submitted a proposed capital improvement budget of $827,500 on May 22 to the City Council. Edmunds explained that the proposed projects for fiscal 2013 would be subject to a future workshop when the proposed budget is discussed more in depth. The proposed spending is $222,500 less than the current budget. The total includes $100,000 for street resurfacing, $404,000 for vehicle replacement and $323,000 for equipment replacement. Street resurfacing scheduled in 2012-13 includes: Valencia Avenue, from Golden Grove Drive to Crestview Street. 110th Lane and 111th Lane north from Village Green Avenue to the northern city limit. 90th Terrace and 91st Terrace north from the western dead end to 108th Street North. Village Green Avenue from Golden Grove Drive to Crestview Street. The work is part of the citys Pavement Management Program, which includes expenditures of $100,000 in 2013 and 2014, as well as $150,000 each in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Funding comes from the Penny for Pinellas sales tax. Vehicle spending includes $385,000 for a new fire truck, which will replace a 1998 model and $19,000 for a new Ford Fusion, which will replace a 2002 Ford Taurus. Funding for both will come from existing CIP allocations, as well an estimated $25,000 trade-in expected on the old fire truck.

DO NOT BLOCKCity tables proposal for roadway markings on crowded 102nd Avenue Heavy traffic during peak hours on 102nd Avenue makes it difficult for residents living in Thurston Groves and nearby side streets to enter the roadway eastbound.Photo by BOB McCLURE By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE For those who travel 102nd Avenue during rush hour, the problem is very evident. For residents that live in Thurston Groves and off neighboring streets, the issue is even more evident. During peak hours, it is often impossible to make a turn out of Thurston Groves, 118th Street or 119th Street onto eastbound 102nd Avenue. So after residents on 118th recently complained, city leaders tried to solve the problem with a proposal to paint a large DO NOT BLOCK notification on the pavement at the entrance to Thurston Groves and at 119th Street. The idea was to remind motorists that its illegal to block those two intersections. But after a discussion on the effectiveness of the idea, the City Council decided to table the issue and consider other ideas in the near future. A light at 119th will solve the problem, said Councilor Bob Matthews. That way people that live on 118th can shoot over on the back roads to 119th and use the light there to enter 102nd Avenue. Matthews said it would cost about $300,000 and would require approval from the county since 102nd Avenue is a county road. Its the only way to solve this problem, Matthews said. City Manager Frank Edmunds said heavy traffic flow has been an issue on the roadway going back to before it was annexed as part of the city. So when the most recent complaint surfaced, Edmunds and Public Works Director Jeremy Hockenbury decided the DO NOT BLOCK markings might help alleviate the problem. At a prior meeting, a discussion took place about some markers to keep lanes open during peak hours, Edmunds said. They would be added to make it visible to the traveling public to not block those streets during peak hours. The cost would be about $1,800, Edmunds said, but the figure could be less if the city were to contract with the county for the work. This will allow opposing traffic (eastbound) to turn onto 119th Street and into Thurston Groves, he said. This application is not designed to aid traffic entering 102nd Avenue. Edmunds explained the markings would be in compliance with the Federal Highway Associations uniform traffic control design standards. This isnt the answer the people that requested something be done were looking for, said Councilor Patricia Plantamura. Councilor Jim Quinn agreed. Were opening up a can of worms with this, he said. Every intersection in this city has this problem and this will continue to come up. Edmunds agreed and said traffic signals proposed recently by the county are the ultimate answer. The situation is unique, said Edmunds, because of the aggravating factor of the light at the (Pinellas) Trail (that slows down traffic on 102nd even more). What are we going to fix (with the markings)? Matthews asked. The outcry is not that. Why cant we leave it alone? Were just going to confuse people more. See CIP, page 4A

The City Commission did not go along with that recommendation. At Tuesdays commission meeting, local businessman Bob Munce said in order for his plan to build a hotel on his 1.8-acre property in The Narrows to be profitable, he will need to have 105 hotel rooms and the old density restrictions of 15 rooms an acre, would make that impossible. The height restriction also would have to increase to make it viable. The debate over the issue began with Vice Mayor Terry HamiltonWollin noting that Munce had not filed any sort of application to build a hotel or any plans to support the idea. We have no plans from Mr. Munce, she said. So as far as we are concerned the hotel idea doesnt exist. We have to govern and make laws and rules that we feel our residents want. We have to figure it out on our own. Otherwise were just wasting out time. She addressed Munce directly when she said, It might seem meanspirited Mr. Munce, but it is not. Our job is to represent the city. Come to us with a plan and well work with you. She got an argument from Commissioner Cookie Kennedy. I dont agree with you at all on this, she said. Mr. Munce has a right to come to us with ideas and we can look at them. This is the only piece of property in town big enough for this project. Id like to know what the voters think. Mayor R.B. Johnson cautioned, We have to be aware of what else could go on in the district. Just because there is no other property that size doesnt mean that other businesses couldnt take advantage of whatever we decide here. After more back and forth discussion Hamilton-Wollin said, Im not moving off 50-50. Thats my position. Fifty-fifty being a 50-foot height limit, with 50 units per acre. The other commissioners and the mayor agreed with her and city staff will now begin the process of amending the Comprehensive Plan and changing the Land Use Regulations to reflect the changes for transient (hotel-motel) accommodations in The Narrows. The process, according to City Manager Chuck Coward, will take nine months. Brian GoffProperty rights cloud pond cleanupBELLEAIR BLUFFS Progress has been made in resolving longstanding issues that have delayed the dredging of two ponds in the citys Dolphin Drive neighborhood. But disagreement between the city and affected residents over the permanence of property easements could stymie the cleanup effort. The area is subject to flooding and the lack of maintenance has caused sediments to accumulate in the ponds, putting property at risk. Also, the pond sediment was adversely affecting wildlife and fish habitat. Cleanup of the ponds has been put off for over three years, as city officials and residents have argued over the granting of easements on the properties and other issues. A major obstacle was overcome in April when the Southwest Florida Water Management District decided that permits were not required to move forward with the dredging and cleanup of the ponds. However, the city still wants residents to grant perpetual easements on the affected properties, which allow the maintenance work to be done. One homeowner, who has since moved, has agreed, while the rest are offering 20-year easements. Thats not good enough, city officials told the residents at the May 21 City Commission meeting. Discussion of the pond issue was the major topic on the agenda. Were asking for the perpetual easements, said Public Works Director Robert David. In 20 years all the players could change, he said. Id hate for the city to go through this all over again. Lets do it right the first time. Commissioner Joseph Barkley asked David, without perpetual easements, how would the ponds continue to be maintained? The city could not maintain the ponds after that time without getting another agreement, David said. Id hate to bring this upon another commission 20 years from now, Mayor Chris Arbutine put in. City Attorney Thomas Trask said the perpetual easements are the one big issue yet to be resolved. The residents are only interested in 20 years, he said, adding, I dont think we can overcome this. Aside from the easements, resident spokesperson Jeff Washburn said he believes the city and the residents are on the same page with most of the other issues related to the project. The residents want the ponds dredged deeper than the city is prepared to do. David acknowledged the deeper dredging would allow more water in the ponds and make them more attractive to look at. But keeping the water levels lower lets the ponds accumulate more storm water. In times of heavy rain, the ponds can hold more runoff and prevent flooding of yards and patios. The citys engineer, Bill Reidy, also said deeper dredging could create sloughing, where a lot of loose soil on the sides of the ponds could collapse and cause residents backyards to slide into the ponds. Washburn said the residents are willing to work with the city on the dredging depths. We dont want our banks sloughing off, he said. Go as deep as you can without jeopardizing the banks. Arbutine said the city would check into bank stabilization methods being done on McKay Creek in Largo. Residents want the inlets and pipes leading into the ponds cleaned regularly and cattails removed from one of the ponds. David agreed to a yearly inspection of the pipes and cleaning as needed. The cattails will be taken out, he said. As for the easements, no agreement was reached. Washburn held out little hope for perpetual easements in the foreseeable future. We are on parallel paths with the city on most things, Washburn said. But on the easements, Wed like to see how it goes for a while. If perhaps in 10 years its going smoothly, we could look at a perpetual easement. However, Washburn said later, if things go well with the project, the residents may be willing to relook the easement issue sooner. Arbutine agreed to hold off pushing the easement issue for now, promising the residents, Were going to do this in a way you guys will want to do a perpetual easement. He also warned the residents that, this is going to be a costly project. Thats why we are going for perpetual easements. He concluded, Well talk about it again when you are more comfortable with it. It is unclear at this point whether the city will proceed with the dredging and cleanup of the ponds without an easement agreement. Wayne AyersMammoth home start delayedBELLEAIR SHORE Construction of the 17,500-square-foot home being built for Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has been stalled. John Kostreles, plan examiner for Pinellas County building and development review services, told the commission the house had been permitted, but has run into problems with the engineering. Howard is seeking a second opinion from another engineering firm, who is checking everything pretty thoroughly, Kostreles said. The house will remain in the foundation stage until the matter is resolved, he said. Robertson said the property has been cleared. Major work will need to be done laying water lines and other tasks because of the canals and other exotic things planned for the house, Robertson indicated. Schmidt said the homes addition to the towns tax rolls will be welcome, considering such unexpected expenses as the Sheriffs Office police cost increase. Wayne AyersLargo commissioner says she wont seek re-electionLARGO City commissioner Gigi Arntzen said May 15 she will not seek re-election to Seat 4. I wanted to advise the commission and residents I have decided I will not seek re-election this year, she said. Hopefully, that will signal to some interested residents who might want to step up and run for office, she said at the commissions meeting. Contacted Wednesday afternoon, Arntzen said shes enjoyed every minute of her service on the City Commission. Im just looking forward to retirement, she said. Its been six and a half wonderful years. Although she plans to travel, she wants to stay involved in the community. Looking back on her tenure as a commissioner, Arntzen said she takes pride in an accumulation of accomplishments rather than any single project. However, she added that the construction of the Highland Recreation Complex, now under way, and completion of a community center were two of the biggest projects that she supported. We have an outstanding staff, she said. Arntzen was elected in 2006 to a three-year term and re-elected in 2009. She retired from county government in 2003 following a 30-year career in secretarial and administrative positions. She has lived in Largo since 1973.

He said he shared the concerns expressed by Pinellas Classroom Teachers president Kim Black, who encouraged the School Board to adopt the resolution at its June 12 meeting.I think that every school board member will echo that message to you, Stewart said. I just didnt think tonight was the night without having a proper chance to discuss it in the proper forum. So we will do that and we will join you some way, some how, in trying to bring Pinellas Countys attention to this issue. Its time the state investigated how we are doing high-stakes testing and how we are evaluating our students and move forward with that. I hope they do that, and Im all for it, Stewart said. Black said the resolution has been adopted by the Palm Beach and St. Lucie school boards and is being considered for adoption by Indian River and Martin County school boards. The resolution was modeled after a similar resolution from Texas that 460 school boards have signed, she said. Adopting the resolutions would send a message that the board values accountability in multiple measures of student growth and that you recognize that changes must be made to Floridas accountability system from Washington, D.C., to Tallahassee to Largo, she said. Our students, teachers and schools have shouldered the burden of an accountability system that undermines educational quality and equity in our schools long enough, Black said. The burden hampers educators efforts to focus on the broad range of learning experiences that promote the innovation, creativity, problem solving and other skills. Pinellas teachers have not shied away from accountability and have embraced high standards and high quality education for all students, she said. We are asking the governor and state board of education to develop a system of multiple forms of assessment that accurately reflects student learning to improve schools instead of punishing them, does not require extensive standardized testing, and a system that supports and uplifts our students and schools, therefore instilling a lifelong love of education, she said. Black asked that the board take action on the resolution at its June 12 meeting. She said she talked with Stewart about the issue the afternoon of May 22, and they agreed that it should be discussed at the boards next workshop and then be placed on the June 12 board meeting. If we dont stand up against these punitive measures for our students and our schools, then who will, she said. Under heavy criticism since it was first administered in 1998, the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test is given to Florida students to measure what they know and are able to accomplish in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. The test is part of Floridas plan to improve student achievement. Student achievement data from the FCAT are used to report educational status and annual progress for individual students, schools, districts, and the state. Grades are given to schools based on the percent of students meeting certain standards and the percent of students who make learning gains. School Board member Linda Lerner said she agreed with Stewarts remarks about the highstakes testing. I fully support this resolution and going beyond the resolution. But we have to do it in the proper way. We will discuss it at our workshop and Im quite sure it will be on our agenda for June 12, she said. I think we also have to look to school grades, she said. If you celebrate them, you say they are valid, and I think its time to say we are going to look at the progress students are making, and the other good things that are happening in schools, and I would like to stop celebration of grades. The resolution says the overemphasis on standardized testing has caused considerable collateral damage in too many schools, including narrowing the curriculum, teaching to the test, reducing love of learning, pushing students out of school, driving excellent teachers out of the profession, and undermining school climate. It calls on the governor, state Legislature and state education boards and administrators to re-examine public school accountability systems in this state, and to develop a system based on multiple forms of assessment which does not require extensive standardized testing, more accurately reflects the broad range of student learning.

Last month, the marine centers CEO E. Howard Rutherford came before the Madeira Beach City Commission requesting a $2.5 million bridge loan to make up a current funding shortfall. The loan was needed, Rutherford said, to provide the cash flow needed for the facility to begin construction and meet a pushed back opening date of February 2013. Reaction to the loan request from the commission had been cautious. Its a roll of the dice. Theres no way we could guarantee we would get our money back, City Manager Shane Crawford had told the commissioners, though he said he considered the loan to be a good risk to take. That risk has been reduced to nearly zero by a new financing arrangement announced by Crawford at the May 22 Commission meeting. Crawford said the marine centers stance, We need to borrow $2.5 million to make it a reality, had created some uneasiness among the commission members. After negotiations involving Crawford, Marine Center officials, and the Bank of Tampa, a new deal on the centers financing was reached. This one gives the marine center the money needed to move forward, while taking the citys risk way down, Crawford said. Under terms of the arrangement, the Bank of Tampa will provide the $2.5 million loan needed for 12 months. The marine center will make 12 monthly payments on the interest only of the loan, an amount well within their ability to meet, Crawford indicated. The total amount needed for those monthly payments will be placed in an escrow account at the outset, assuring that the payments will be made. The 12 months will give the marine center time to firm up donors who are expected to finance the remainder of the centers estimated $5 million cost. While some large donations have already been received, other major donors want evidence of the projects viability before making a commitment. The citys role is to put aside $2.5 million, as a guarantee the project will happen, Crawford said. That money will not be moved from the citys accounts.Madeira officials say risk in backing project is minute Fallen heroes honoredPhoto by BOB McCLURECongressman Bill Young of Indian Shores lays the ceremonial wreath at the cemetery monument during a Memorial Day service May 28 at the Bay Pines VA National Cemetery.

Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Andrew Christopher Davis-Burton after he met a 15-year-old girl by a Palm Harbor residential neighborhood pool. The suspect provided alcoholic beverages to the minor and then invited her back to his residence, where he sexually battered her.

Per Florida Statute 119, no further information will be released that would tend to identify the minor victim. According to detectives, the victim agreed to go with the suspect to his home. While there, he provided her with additional alcoholic beverages. He then forcefully removed her swimsuit and sexually battered her three times. Davis-Burton then forced her to clean herself up, before allowing her to leave the residence. The victim reported the crime to her grandmother, who in turn contacted the Sheriffs Office. Crimes Against Children detectives responded and began their investigation. Davis-Burton was located on the afternoon of May 24 in a home in Oldsmar and was arrested for three counts sexual battery and for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

WALK-INS ALWAYS WELCOME Funding approved to take down Friendship Trail bridge By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Approving money for demolition does not necessarily mean the old Friendship Trailbridge will be coming down. Pinellas County Vice-chair Ken Welch made that point clear after commissioners voted unanimously May 22 to advance $515,000 budgeted in fiscal year 2015 to the current year to fund the countys share of demolition costs. Commissioners John Morroni, Susan Latvala and Norm Roche were absent. The money will be transferred to Hillsborough County. Pinellas and Hillsborough have operated the bridge via an interlocal agreement since 1999. The Friendship Trail was temporarily shut down in November 2008 due to safety concerns. In December 2008, a report from Kisinger, Campo & Associates and SDR Engineering Consultants talked about the potential for the bridge to collapse due to eroding structural integrity. The bridge was then closed permanently. Engineers said the aging structure, which has been in service nearly 60 years, had well exceeded its service design life of 50 years. County staff explains that the bridges location over Tampa Bay has exposed it to an extremely corrosive environment for many years, which has caused extensive chloride intrusion of the steel reinforced concrete members. The result is ongoing degradation of the concrete piles, caps, beams, deck and other concrete elements. In April 2010, the condition of the bridge was reassessed. Engineers estimated repair costs at $48 million. Hillsborough and Pinellas decided to demolish the bridge and have since been working to budget the money to pay for it. Hillsborough County, per the interlocal agreement, has spearheaded efforts to get bids for the demolition. American Bridge Company submitted a bid of nearly $4.2 million to take down about 11,000 linear feet of the bridge, plus $1 million to remove another 3,000 linear feet. Pinellas County has already contributed $2 million to the project. Another $515,000 is needed to provide 50 percent of the cost. Hillsborough County deferred a decision to award the demolition contract on April 4 due to a request by a Tampa-based citizen group that wants to turn the old structure into a linear park. The citizens are expected to present a business plan to Hillsborough County on June 6. Pinellas County staff reviewed the draft plan the citizens presented and provided technical review and feedback. The plan recommends replacing 252 low-level concrete spans with prefabricated aluminum or galvanized steel metal spans and maintaining the remainder of the bridge intact with minor repairs. Cost is estimated at $18.7 million to reopen the bridge and another $33.2 million over the next 30 years. Pinellas County staff identified areas of concern. First on the list was the service life of the piles, which are concrete columns driven below the seabed, and the concrete pile caps, which are the beams that connects the piles. The citizens group estimates a $1 million repair bill. Staff says the work will cost $14 million to get 15 years of life. Overall, the biggest concern was structural integrity and the saltwater environment that constantly erodes the concrete and steel. Staff says, Even with the expenditure of millions of dollars, there is no guarantee that these corrosive forces can be controlled to the point of restoring and/or maintaining the desired structural integrity of the steel in the concrete members. The present lack of structural integrity of this facility has the potential for unanticipated hazards to boat traffic traversing underneath the bridge. Staff recommends supporting Hillsborough Countys plans to demolish the bridge as the most fiscally responsible action plan from an engineering and liability perspective.Friendship Trailbridge historyThe old Gandy Bridge was used by people traveling west across Old Tampa Bay from 1956 to 1995, when a new bridge was opened. At the time, the Florida Department of Transportation declared the old bridge structurally deficient to vehicular traffic. Plans called for demolition of the middle section, leaving the ends as fishing piers. Citizens from Pinellas and Hillsborough counties began a movement to save the 2.6-mile long span. The counties agreed in 1997 to assume joint ownership of what was to become the Friendship Trailbridge, one of the longest pedestrian structures over water in the world. According to the Friendship Trail Corporation, before it was closed, more than 600,000 people were using the pedestrian bridge annually for activities, including walking, jogging, bicycling, skating and fishing. After the trail bridge was closed in 2008, some attempts were made by citizens to save it, but the price tag of $48 million seemed insurmountable.New group steps in to helpA new yet-to-be-named group has stepped up that wants to not only save the old bridge but also turn it into an iconic linear park for all of Tampa Bay to enjoy. These citizens believe the old pedestrian bridge can be transformed and a new bridge built that will last until at least 2047. The plan outlined in the draft report, available at friendshiptrailbridge.com, calls for partial demolition of damaged sections, light repair of sound portions of the bridge and replacement of damaged decking sections.Pinellas County unemployment rate drops to 8.2 percent By SUZETTE PORTERGood news again from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Pinellas County unemployment continues to fall.

The team wore bow ties as Ken Rosenthal does during FOX Televisions weekly national telecasts. Each tie Ken wears is designed with a specific charity in mind as part of BowTie Cause, a philanthropic initiative started by Dhani Jones. The Rays donated $100 per bow tie for 30 ties for a total donation of $3,000 benefitting 18 different charities.Photo by SKIP MILOS/TAMPA BAY RAYSWarhawks look toward 2013 season By BRAD RICHARDSONSEMINOLE Now that the season is over, players on Seminole High School baseball team have begun to focus on next season. Most players will soon move into summer baseball and AAU competition. They also will participate in off-season conditioning with assistant coach J.J. Johnson. According to head coach Jeffery Pincus, he doesnt want to see them put themselves in a position where they could be overused. The tendency, he said, is for many players to please every coach that they play for. With all the traveling teams, high school showcases, the myriad of showcase tournaments and informal summer high school baseball leagues, there are ample opportunities out there, said Pincus. My main focus is for them to use their opportunities to improve their skills as well as their visibility, but at the same time not jeopardize their health. Starting catcher Michael Mann said that now that summer is around the corner, its a perfect time to recharge the batteries and start focusing on 2013. I hope for next year that we continue to come together more as a team and work harder together, Mann said. And this summer many of us will be playing in perfect game tournaments for teams such as the Florida Burn. The Warhawks 2012 season came to a close May 8 following a 6-1 loss to Gaither in the Class 7A regional semifinals in Tampa. After winning a district title with a victory over Clearwater, Seminole had high hopes, especially after a 6-1 win over Freedom in the first round of regionals. Senior Jordan Doyle was the starting pitcher for the Gaither game. I felt that they (Warhawks players) were ready, said Pincus. Everyone played as well as they could under the circumstances. I dont think anyone played less than 100 percent. Even Jordan (Doyle) during the first inning seemed to be cruising pretty well. In the fourth inning, Doyle allowed four runs, which pushed Gaither out in front 6-0. He was eventually pulled and junior Alex McGathey stepped in. It felt weird to pull him from the mound, said Pincus. But it was pretty evident at that point that he was struggling to keep the game going and we had to prevent more runs. We felt the game was still within reach and so we wanted to do everything that we could to minimize any further damage. See WARHAWKS, page 17A

Veiwpoints 15A Beacon, May 31, 2012 One of the benefits of growing old or older is that you learn not to give a hoot the way you used to. Lets consider a few examples that strike my mind, and perhaps yours as well. I used to be concerned about the steady decline of American English, both written and spoken. I have watched and listened as ordinary conversation among supposedly educated Americans has decayed and crumbled into repetitive, unthinking near-gibberish. Today the average citizen especially those in the baby-boomer generation uses only a dozen or so words and expressions in his/her daily exchanges with other humans. They include like, yknow, awesome, totally, I mean, oh my god, the bottom line, the name of the game and whatever. Take these and a few others away from todays man or woman on the street and they would be struck dumb. As for correct grammar and pronunciation, forget it. Ive been griping for decades about the decomposing of our language, and guess what? No one listens, or at least not enough of them to turn back the tide. Finally Ive begun to relax and admit defeat. The barbarians are not only at the gates, theyve stormed through and have taken control. Still the world keeps on turning, and my morning oatmeal still tastes as good as ever. Aging also can bring with it a personal mellowing about the madness of the political wars. The past several months of the GOP primary contests have been instructive. Seldom in history has so much pointless and deceitful hot air been generated in the name of choosing a presidential candidate. Gradually the truth dawned on me: this is all (or mostly) a load of baloney. The same realization will hold true in the weeks leading up to the November election. Both parties will be guilty of generating a deluge of tripe. And how should we respond to it? The wisest and healthiest course will be to ignore most of it. The main thing to keep in mind is this: no matter who is elected president, fate (i.e., ungovernable circumstance) will largely determine the course of national and world events. That sounds as if it could be frightening, but its not. Its reassuring for millions of worriers, who tend to carry around the mistaken notion that they should all be trying in some way to save the world. As the years pass, I also worry much less about fat. I think it was in the 1990s when I looked around one day and exclaimed, Holy Nellie, were all turning into fat! Everywhere I looked, including in my own bathroom mirror, I saw people who were obese, or at least overweight. I listened to all the dire medical warnings, and foresaw the day when 80 percent of Americans would be suffering from diabetes, heart trouble or one of the other maladies that attend fatness. My fears continued for years. And do you know what happened? Theyve pretty much come true. All my fuss and worry did nothing to stop them. So I changed my attitude and tactics. I stopped wringing my hands, and today I just sit back and calmly watch the avoirdupois levels rise. Im sorry its happening, but except for my own eternal dieting I cant change it. For a time I fretted daily about the number of people who were injured in slips, falls, dog bites, barroom brawls and auto accidents. The indicator of all this misery was, and is, the number of personal injury lawyers that seem to abound in the Tampa Bay area. Newspapers, TV and our local highways are awash in ads for PI attorneys. One day I woke up and reasoned, No one should worry about all these unfortunate accident victims. With all these heroic PI lawyers defending them, theyll be well-compensated. My pity was misplaced. Matter of fact, I now wonder why we dont see more advertising on behalf of corporations, hospitals, and other rich and powerful entities who are always being sued by the supposed accident victims. Dont the high and mighty also deserve a fair shake in our courts? I envision the day when we will switch on our TV sets and hear a chubbycheeked lawyer say, Business leaders and other plutocrats, arent you tired of seeing the little guys walk away with all those excessive jury awards? Why should those crippled workers get all the gravy? Our attorneys will fight for YOU the top dogs and moneyed interests. So remember our name and our motto: Horrigan and Horrigan screw the people!Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor of the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Letting go of some of the reinsRepublicans fulfill an admonitionEditor: Who was in charge? During the four years before the great depression? During the late 1950s early 1960s recession? When the president resigned, the only one in U.S. history? During the 1973 1975 gas crisis? Prior to the late 1970s early 1980s stagflation? During the U.S. military build up, fulfilling Eisenhowers military-industrial complex warning? Prior to the late 1980s early 1990s recession? As the U.S. court system was stacked with conservatives that resulted in the citizens united decision? When the U.S. government shut down, twice? When the U.S. incurred the greatest debt in its history? As banks scammed the economy that caused the current Great Recession? There is only one answer to all these questions: the Repooplikin party! If you think mega-rich, mega-out-of-touch, Romney, with his car elevator, is going to change the course of this nations government, then our destiny will be worse than Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain combined. Current events prove that truth, underscored by the slash and decimate policies of conservatives in the E.U. Only informed, passionate, citizens affect the change needed to become more civilized, to reach-across-the-aisle to solve the nations problems. Extreme right wing conservatives are incapable of any of those civilized objectives. Their only objective is to rid the White House of a black man. They have said so, too many times to count. To achieve that objective, conservatives and their mouthpieces are fulfilling Joseph Goebbels admonition: If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. Mike MacDonald ClearwaterLeaving the partyEditor: I believe that you will see many Democrats leaving their party and not just because of the gay marriage issue but because of much more important issues. A good example is Evan Gold, publisher of Senior Voice America, who says, Ever been to a party and you try and gauge when is the best time to leave? We always think are we going to miss something exciting, or is the party just not going to get any better? Well, just like a birthday party or wedding reception so goes a political party. I have been a Democrat since I was 18 years old. I come from a Democratic family. Many of my friends are Democrats. I consider myself a conservative Democrat. But all that being said, it is time for a change. I have been watching the direction that the Democratic Party has been moving in, and I no longer feel that it is in the best interest of America. But first, let me tell you that this is not a letter to convince you to leave the Democratic Party, but to give you my views on what is best for our country, children, families and grandchildren. There seems to be some sort of concept where we need to take away the wealth of Americans that they have worked a lifetime to earn. America was once a place where we felt we had the right to work as hard as we wanted and earn as much as our talents were worth. It was a place where you were not ashamed to earn what you earned. Now we have a president and a political party that feels that individuals who work hard should support those who are not willing to put in the same effort. Plain and simple, this is nothing less than socialism. What would Reagan, Lincoln, Jefferson or Washington say to this? There is a group of Americans that feel that they are entitled to take other peoples wealth and redistribute it. This is extremely dangerous and will lead to a complete downfall of America. Let me give you an example. The leadership of the Democratic Party feels that taking 50 percent of someones salary to fund government programs is fair. This is communicated to the public that the more well-to-do (not even the wealthy) need to unjustly and inequitably support the have nots, or have lesss. This is being drilled into our youth. We say to our children that if you study and do well in school you can get into a good college and get a well paying job. But why bother? We are making it abundantly clear to Americas youth that they need not worry since America will take care of them. Now more than ever, we need to make a stand to keep the ideals alive of our forefathers. Let me sum it up by a famous quote from Dr. Adrian Rogers: You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the ides that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend is the end of any nation.

Tell me whom you are more likely to trust with our future and the future of our country? Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkFourever Friends a success againEditor: On behalf of the Richardson, MacCollom and Ruzecki families, they would like to thank the Seminole community for another successful round of golf at the third annual Fourever Friends Golf Tournament held on April 14. This tournament was started to give remembrance and hope from a tragedy. After the accident on April 10, 2009, the families of the boys wanted to give back to the community by allowing students to continue to achieve their goals, either through sports or academics. The tournament was the best way to reach out to the community to gain support and keep the boys memories alive. Over 142 golfers were able to enjoy a fun-filled day with good weather and entertainment, while they enjoyed 18 holes of championship golf. The tournament featured both a lunch and dinner along with live music provided by Carlos and Joe. A raffle, silent and live auction kept people in a competitive mood as people bid for competitive prizes such as vacation and golf packages, Rays games and prize packages donated by local restaurants and businesses. Golfers and members of the community were able to view memorable photos and videos of Keith MacCollom, Nate Richardson, Joey Ruzecki, and LeShawn Smith inside the clubhouse. After the auction, the families delivered a heartfelt thank you to more than 300 guests and friends. Along with country club General Manager Norm Haglund, golf pro Bruce Chaleff, they thanked the continuing support of the golf course along with the countless volunteers that helped make the event run smoothly for the afternoon shotgun. The families would like to thank title sponsor Audibel Hearing Aide Centers for its generous support and contributions to this years tournament. They would like to thank gold sponsors Helinger Advertising, Clear Tech Pool Service, Relief at Hand, and Twiss Transport as well as silver sponsor the Kenny Family and bronze sponsors Biff Burger, the Bluett Family and Schooner Prints. We were able to raise money that will benefit high school students and athletes with their college and career plans; along with giving local children the opportunity to follow their dreams to play football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit The Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship fund, the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship Fund, The Nate Richardson Memorial Baseball Scholarship Fund, the YMCA of Largo and Play for Us Memorial Foundation. On May 15, the families presented the awards to the recipients of each winners of the scholarship. Winners for the Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship award were Madalyn Sowada, Alicia Tyler, Samuel Weldon, Jonathan Zanga, and Tyler Zulewski. Winners for the Nate Richardson Baseball scholarship award were Kristina Fudge, Katherine Cattrell, and Jordan Doyle. Winners for the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship were Alicia Tyler, Tyler Zulewski, Danielle Schmidt, and Jonathan Zanga. Senior Barrett Pluskatt was able to win all three awards. He was a member of the 2012 varsity basketball and baseball team as well as having a 4.5 weighted GPA. The families hope to see the continuing support next year when the tournament will be held on April 6 at the Seminole Lake Country Club.

Jeb Bush recently predicted the 2012 presidential campaign will be the nastiest ever. Bushs campaigns for governor were not horribly negative, but he knows nasty. Hes the son of the former president whose supporters made us familiar with Willie Horton, and the brother of the president whose allies added the word swiftboat to Americas political lexicon. The aggressive tactics in both Bush presidential campaigns emanated not from the candidates or the Republican Party, but from the kind of independent campaign committees we saw smearing GOP candidates in the primary this year. Freed by two Supreme Court rulings an old one that said money is a form of speech and a comparatively new one that said corporate interests can spend as much as they please to praise or attack candidates these autonomous advocacy organizations are likely to finance unprecedented sludge-fests for both sides. Of course, its possible they could take the high road with positive ads about issues such as health care, Social Security, jobcreation, taxes and war. Yeah, right. Forget truth. You cant legally stop them from lying in political advertisements. Libel and slander laws dont apply to political speech and, alas, former Georgia Sen. Zell Millers 2004 suggestion that we bring back dueling never quite caught on. Fortunately, there are three things voters can do to inoculate themselves against the hype about to come. First, dont believe any of it. Whether the message is nice or nasty, remember that either the candidates or some wealthy interests supporting them are spending a lot of money to bring that information to you. Somebody really wants you to think of the candidate, or an issue, in a certain way. You know what they say about something that sounds too good to be true? Well, the same goes for anything that sounds too bad. Second, do a little research of your own. Dont get your information from TV ads, Tweets or Facebook postings put out by either side. There are independent, non-partisan, reliable fact-checking Internet sites. Theres also a lot of garbage. Check things out as you would before buying a car or changing jobs. Third, hold the candidates personally responsible for what is said on their behalf. Its too easy for candidates to keep clean hands and let the s or Super PACs sling the mud. We shouldnt let them get away with it. If Obama or Romney benefits from some wild, outrageous smear done by an independent organization, he owns it. Unless he calls a news conference to disassociate himself, the attack belongs to whichever campaign wants you to believe it. We recently saw an encouraging pre-emptive strike in this direction. An outside organization planned to attack Obama with advertisements dredging up the 2008 furor over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the presidents former pastor in Chicago. Although his campaign was not technically involved in the plan, Romney publicly disassociated himself from it. Maybe the Romney forces engineered the whole thing, to remind everybody of Wrights past statements while making the Republican nominee-to-be look virtuous for repudiating it. But it sets a good precedent for what portends to be an ugly presidential campaign.Bill Cotterell, retired senior writer for the Tallahassee Democrat, has covered Florida government and politics since 1969.

Frampton was using a compact Panasonic Lumix digital camera that was focused on the bird when the dolphin decided to join the party.Tarpon remain at the top of the listThe tarpon migration continues along Pinellas County beaches. So far this has been an excellent first part of the season; favorable winds have made for ideal conditions for spotting incoming pods of fish. For success, you better be sitting on your favorite stretch of beach in the dark waiting for the sun to come up. The tarpon have been easiest to spot in that first hour of daylight. This is the time when the fish are happy; often they can be seen milling as they slowly drift with the tide. A well-placed cast with a live pinfish, threadfin, scaled sardine or crab will usually draw a strike this time of day. Once the sun is a bit higher the fish dont show as much, but are still there. Anchoring up in the same lanes where you have been spotting fish and keeping fresh baits out is a good option. Keep one rod baited and ready in case fish pop up out of your spread. Light east winds have made short runs offshore for a chance at a few hogfish a good option. Anchoring on the same ledges where you would typically target gag grouper will put you in the right spot. Then have everyone on the boat drop down either live or fresh frozen shrimp. Be sure to use light rods, as the bite can be very subtle, as more and more shrimp go down your odds of hook-ups go up as these fish respond well to chum. Inshore, redfish have been cooperating on the afternoon high tides. Cut-bait fishing along the mangrove shorelines has still been the pattern. With the water temp on the flats getting into the low 80s during the day these fish are going to get into the shade just as soon as the water is high enough to allow it. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to bmcclure@ TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein A stranger in their midst See DOLPHIN WATCH, page 17AA stranger among friends changes everybodys behavior. Talk becomes either more animated or more subdued, but it changes. Body language changes too, sometimes obviously, often with subtlety. Although dolphins have social networks as big and fluid as your own, they too change in the presence of strangers. It was a wonderfully typical spring scene at sea. Four pairs of dolphins were scattered and busy with various activities until the stranger showed up. Two of the three mother-calf pairs exhibited mom-forage-calf-cavort behavior. Calves Delta and Savannah were born last summer. Theyve survived their first winter and are now zippy 9 month olds. Today, their romping little group really was a dolphin school. Though they appeared to be playing as hard as they could, they were actually learning critical lessons of give-and-take that will dictate the quality of their social lives for the next 50 years. Deltas mom Fish Whacker, named for her signature hunting style, babysat. Nearby Savannahs mom Stick hunted, something shes done unceasingly since her pregnancy. The other mother-calf pair probably wasnt hunting. Mom Q and calf Qball were probably teasing bulls BB and DD2 by meandering just out of reach. Q has been the focus of a steady stream of bulls for several months now. Qball literally comes along for the ride and, watching Q, learns vital lessons of her own. The bulls played along, merely following Qs twisting trail without pushing the issue further. At one point I glanced left just in time to see the dark silhouette of a dorsal fin submerge below the glittering sea surface like a stealthy submarine. The fin belonged to a massive dolphin and jutted up like a proud sail. Given its size, it could have been big bull Fishlips. Hes been Qs most ardent suitor (along with his buddy Ouch). His presence would make sense. Bottlenose dolphin bulls surface to breathe about a third as often as mothers and calves but usually illustrate their charter membership in the I Dont Need to Breathe Club. So we didnt expect to see the giant fin surface soon, though we did expect it to surface at some point. But it never did. Fishlips is familiar with all these dolphins. He didnt need to sneak around. BB and DD2 may have tired of Qs flirtations. In any case, they split up. DD2 went east to wander around Fish Whacker. BB went west. We were tracking BB when we spied a large dolphin near a distant seawall. We only caught two disappointing glimpses of it, but enough to eliminate Fishlips and another big bull, BNSB, who often trails nursery groups like this. They are the only two Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver

When their pitcher threw me a high fast ball and I just kept my hands up and when I swung the bat, the ball hit that sweet spot, Withrow said. It was out of here. In a post-game team meeting, Pincus told the seniors how much their leadership would be missed. At that particular moment, they had everything to be proud of, said Pincus. It was a matter of two good teams coming together and it just wasnt their (Seminoles) night. I spoke to the seniors about how much I was going to miss their leadership and about how sorry we couldnt prolong their season to a state championship. I spoke to the juniors and sophomores about how much they have to look forward to in the coming years cause they have a great nucleus of talent to offer. Although it was the final game of their season, Seminole ended with a solid 24-5 record. Collectively, the team hit .344 with a .943 fielding percentage and a .450 slugging percentage. We went into it thinking that we would be playing on Friday and just came out playing flat, senior Brett Phillips said. For some reason the enthusiasm at times wasnt there. It was definitely a bigger improvement from last year, but ending the season on a loss is always terrible. Gaither lost in the next round to Venice, which went on to win the 7A state crown with a 4-2 victory over Brandon. Eight of Seminoles players have been announced for the 2012 Pinellas County All Conference baseball team. For more information about Seminole Baseball, visit www.eteamz.com/seminolewarhawksbaseball. WARHAWKS, from page 12Abulls we know around here as big as this mysterious new dolphin. It started to feel like that line in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: Who ARE those guys? Its been several years since we encountered a new bull. We identified the most recent new resident bull in spring 2007. Since then, weve only identified three new nonresident bulls, two in summer 2009 and one in summer 2010. Who IS this new dolphin? Meanwhile, young Miss Qball had joined calves Delta and Savannah, who zealously (and literally!) embraced the opportunities she brought for new lessons at dolphin sea school. They endlessly formed toppling trios in the aquatic version of Squash. Each took turns rafting at the surface until its playmates surfaced on either side of it and pressed close, disappearing into fountains of bright white dolphin bellies, waving flukes and fins, and frank little baby faces. When it was Sticks turn to be the focus of data collection, she stopped hunting abruptly and went over to pick up her little boy Savannah from sea school. Q appeared magically at the same time and similarly drew Qball to her side. Fish Whacker did precisely the same with Delta. I marveled at their flawless coordination with one another but particularly at the almost-reflexive obedience of calves drawn to moms side. Then they all vanished. Well! Intellectually, I know that we get to observe the dolphins only as long as they let us. Emotionally, however, theres an inevitable jolt when vanishing acts like this one reinforce that fact so forcibly. Returning to those waters some time later, it all became clear. The mother-calf pairs slowly reassembled, joined by two more (Split and Seville, Club and her month-old calf). Strength in numbers, you know. The calves launched another romp at sea school but it was shortlived. Instead, there began a curious milling of the mothers, calves glued to their sides. Milling is traveling without going anywhere. Ah ha! The mysterious dolphin surfaced in their midst. His massive dorsal fin was scarred from many battles. But these were scars of victory, not the tatters of defeat. Hed probably been hanging around sea school all morning, potentially accounting for the abrupt end of its perpetual recess. As if busted, he swam away slowly. Capt. John Heidemann named him Xiphos after the Greek sword used for close combat. If he hangs around, this stranger dolphin will certainly change everybodys behavior. Dolphin talk WILL become more animated. There will be nothing subtle about the changes in their body language!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

This time, no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of summers best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert with survivor Paul Scheer and a partially devoured Ving Rhames back for more fish frenzy. David Hasselhoff trades in the sandy beaches of Baywatch to be a celebrity lifeguard at the racy water park. Prepare for double the terror, double the action and double the Ds in this sequel also starring Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka and David Koechner.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.A Cat in ParisGenre: Family and animated Cast: Marcia Gay Harden, Anjelica Huston and Matthew Modine Director: Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol Rated: PG From Folimage, the animation studio behind Mia & the Migoo and Raining Cats and Frogs, comes a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. Dino is a pet cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night he sneaks out the window to work with Nico a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. The cats two worlds collide when young Zoe decides to follow Dino on his nocturnal adventures and falls into the hands of Victor Costa, a blustery gangster planning the theft of a rare statue. Now cat and cat burglar must team up to save Zoe from the bumbling thieves, leading to a thrilling acrobatic finale on top of Notre Dame. A Cat in Paris is a warm and richly humorous love letter to classic noir films and the stylized wit of the Pink Panther cartoons and Dino, the literal cat burglar, manages to steal the show with little more than a subtle swish of the tail and quiet mew. High SchoolGenre: Comedy Cast: Adrien Brody, Sean Marquette, Matt Bush, Colin Hanks, Adhir Kalyan, Mykelti Williamson, Yeardley Smith, Curtis Armstrong and Michael Chiklis Director: John Stalberg Jr. Rated: R The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis) institutes a zero tolerance drug policy and administers a mandatory drug test for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette) to beat the system. They steal a high-powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody) and spike the schools bake sale brownies, getting the whole school faculty included completely stoned out of their minds. But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie, and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.Wallander: The RevengeGenre: Drama Cast: Krister Henriksson, Lena Endre, Fredrik Gunnarsson and Mats Bergman Director: Charlotte Brndstrm Not rated From the producers of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Revenge is based on an original story by The Godfather of Swedish Crime Henning Mankell, featuring his most popular character, the titular chief inspector Kurt Wallander (Krister Henriksson).
