VIEWPOINTSTom GermondWhats next? Airline potty fees? ... Page 15A. 30 years laterSEMINOLE Thirty years ago an industrious group of Seminole Middle School students in the schools Enhanced Learning Program buried a collection of artifacts that represented life in 1982. They included items reflecting world news, recreation, technology, family life, government, basic needs, and entertainment. Each item was sealed and placed in a container designed to withstand the elements and Florida water table. Then the time capsule was ceremoniously buried in front of the principals office at Seminole Middle School, 8701 131st St. On Thursday, June 7, at 11:30 a.m., former students are gathering in the front yard of the school with their former teacher, Hilda Rosselli, to dig up the time capsule and share the artifacts with Deborah Loves students. Although many of the former students in the project are unable to attend in person, they have been reconnecting with their teacher and classmates via Facebook and email. Students in Loves classes are planning to continue the tradition and will be burying a new time capsule to be recovered in 2042. It was a learning experience in itself for the students to determine what about 2012 was noteworthy enough to add to the capsule, and what artifacts should be preserved as an indication of the standard of living and as a representation of the 2012 culture of Seminole, Florida, America, and even the world, Love said. My students cannot wait to open it again in 2042, and see the reactions of those future middle schoolers. Principal Tom Lechner is looking forward to former teachers and alumni interacting with present teachers and students as they unearth the time capsule.

The 3.2-acre lake is located in unincorporated Seminole between 86th Avenue North and 84th Avenue with 122nd Street to the west and 119th Street and the Pinellas Trail to the east.Photo copyright GOOGLE MAPSStormwater system an issue for lake homeowners By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Homeowners who live around Lake Sylvia say they shouldnt have to bear the cost of maintaining a piece of Pinellas Countys stormwater management system. They say stormwater should be the countys responsibility. John Reyner presented the case for homeowners who have been paying to take care of the lake located in unincorporated Seminole during the May 22 meeting of the Pinellas County Commission. Reyner said since the 1980s, stormwater, per county design, has been draining into their private lake from areas beyond their property and creating problems. Pete Yauch, director of transportation and storm water, admitted that back in the day when the county began using private lakes and ponds as part of its overall stormwater management plan, water quality wasnt an issue. You have no agreement with the 38 homeowners (who live around the lake), Reyner said. You have no agreement to turn the lake into a stormwater pond. He said staff had been unresponsive to requests for help with the lake. He said staff had told the homeowners that because the lake is private property the county couldnt help pay for maintenance. Reyner said they were advised to seek legal help. He said for 30 years, the homeowners had contributed to the care and maintenance of the lake with little problems. Then the county directed water from surrounding areas to drain into the lake where it flows out to the Gulf of Mexico via McKay Creek. Reyner and his neighbors want the county to help pay the cost of removing the muck in the bottom of the lake that has caused the lake level to drop to only 12 inches at the inflow and outflow areas. He suggested that the county take care of its stormwater problems upstream from Lake Sylvia. Only the few are expected to pay for maintenance, Reyner said. We ask that you do no harm to our private property. Commissioner Ken Welch thanked Reyner for his presentation. You make a great point about stormwater being a core service, Welch said. We need to step up.Not an isolated problemCommissioner Karen Seel said she has been working on more than one stormwater project. She said one involves a county-owned lake that residents are maintaining for stormwater. Were using other lakes and we need to be fair about it, she said. Seel reminded commissioners of another recent project where the county helped pay for stormwater improvements on private property. She requested that staff look at drainage and other issues at privately owned stormwater ponds. County Attorney Jim Bennett was asked to follow up with the issue of easements and other stormwater issues. I want staff to look at it all so we have the magnitude of what were dealing with, Seel said. Pete Yauch, director of transportation and stormwater, agreed that Reyner made an excellent point. Weve had a standard of service for many years, mostly for flooding protection, he said. Water quality is an afterthought. Were dealing with decisions of our predecessors. County Administrator Bob LaSala said staff was working on stormwater matters, but admitted that the focus was only part time. Theyre not totally focused on the master plan, he said. He estimated it would take at least a calendar year to get it done. Photo courtesy of ECO POND RESCUEThis is a photo of Lake Sylvia taken about 2007 by Eco Pond Rescue, a Seminole company. Algae covered the surface and fish kills were frequent.Well take a look at this issue and others like it, he said. But we dont have the staff to do it. And Im not sure it would do any good. We still have the policy about spending taxpayer money on private property. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said while it was good that the county was no longer paying to maintain private lakes, she didnt think the policy should extend to lakes being used for the public interest. We cant expend monies on private property as it benefits private property, LaSala said. Then what happens if we dont use private (lake), Bostock asked. Wed have to build our own ponds, Yauch answered. Bostock suggested that owners of private lakes be See LAKE, page 4A By BOB McCLURETREASURE ISLAND If past history is any indication, beach communities and their hotels will not be under a heavy threat of danger during the Republican National Convention, Aug. 27-30 in Tampa. David MacNamee, operations manager for Pinellas County Emergency Management, told members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council May 30 that past history would indicate protesters and demonstrators will not target delegate hotels. Hundreds of delegates will be staying in hotels along Pinellas County beaches and will be bused to the convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. At past conventions, there have been no problems at delegate hotels, MacNamee said. But they were not as spread out in the past as they will be here. MacNamee noted that there are three levels of outside activity protests, demonstrations and riots. The good news is nobody has ever used a Molotov cocktail, he said. But the tactics of an anarchist group called the Black Bloc could be a problem in Tampa. They just want anarchy, said MacNamee. Theyre a small part of the protests but they are the ones that cause the problems, getting other demonstrators juiced up. Participants in the Black Bloc wear black clothing, ski masks and other face-concealing items. They often blend in with the crowd until they strike then melt back See BIG-C, page 4A David MacNamee Got a centennial story?To celebrate the countys centennial, Tampa Bay Newspapers is seeking unique stories from longtime Pinellas residents who have stories about the way things used to be.

Survey shows area residents content with county services By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER County government recently offered its residents an opportunity to take a survey by phone or online to share how they felt about services and the quality of life in Pinellas. Generally, people had few gripes. Most seemed content with things the way they are. Many said things were no better and no worse than they were five years ago. HCP & Associates, a national research, strategy and marketing firm headquartered in Tampa, conducted the surveys between March 23 and April 27. The phone portion included 800 residents 200 each from north, mid, south and beach areas of Pinellas. HCP reports that 1,505 responded to the online questionnaire. The survey reports detail similarities and differences between residents who responded by the two methods. The reports are available at www.pinellascounty.org/budget. In general, the surveys showed that residents have a strong sense of loyalty to the county with the majority being residents for more than 15 years with no plans to move. The county is in the fortunate position to not only have longer-term residents but to have those residents offer reasons for staying that heavily reflect their free will and choice to do so, HCP said in its report. However, people who took the phone survey were a bit more enthusiastic about their reasons to love Pinellas. The survey asks if residents would recommend Pinellas to a friend, family member or acquaintance as a place to live, work, raise children and/or retire. By phone, 74.6 percent said they would recommend Pinellas as a good place to raise children; however, only 45.8 percent of online respondents agreed. More than 72 percent of those surveyed by phone would recommend the county as a place to work, compared to 48 percent who answered the questions online. Both groups gave the county the best recommendation as a good place to live, 83.8 percent by phone and 65.1 percent online. Next highest marks came for retirement with 87.4 percent by phone and 60.7 percent online willing to give a recommendation. The majority in both surveys said they were mostly satisfied with the level of service the county provides. Pinellas County Commissioners, along with staff, will be using the survey information as they work to balance the fiscal year 2012-2013 budget. Survey takers were asked to rank county service areas by importance. Emergency services received top ranks with those who answered by phone giving fire service top billing and the online survey group putting 911 services first. Law enforcement ranked No. 2 online and No. 3 to those on the phone. Emergency management ranked high in importance with both groups as did solid waste collection, water quality and sewer services. Residents who answered by phone said emergency financial assistance to low-income residents is the least important county service. Online respondents said volunteering was least important. Both groups put street sweeping in the next to last spot for least important. According to the survey summary, citizens believe their needs are being met in terms of volunteer opportunities, cultural events, social and recreational activities. Residents indicated there was room for improvements for availability of affordable housing, employment and traffic flow. The county is still looking for citizen input as work continues on the budget. Residents are welcome to attend budget meetings and to submit opinions and suggestions online. Use the submit your suggestions box at www.pinellas county.org/budget. The budget page includes budget presentations, a meeting schedule and information on the budget process. Final budget hearings will take place in September. The fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Changes made at drivers license officePINELLAS PARK The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reduced services at its driver license office at 6855 62nd Ave. N. in Pinellas Park June 1. Services are limited to: Driving skills exams, which are the hands-on road tests that new drivers must take to demonstrate competency before they obtain their regular Class E driver license; Department-ordered re-exams that are required when the Department believes there is a possibility that a driver is not able to operate a motor vehicle safely; and Hazardous-material fingerprinting for commercial driver license holders. For all other driver license services, customers may visit any of the Pinellas County Tax Collectors offices. For office locations, go to www.taxcollect .com. The Pinellas Park office will close permanently June 29, and the Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office will be the sole provider of driver license services. Many customers can skip the trip to an office and renew driver licenses, identification cards, and vehicle tags, as well as conduct other driving-related business online at www.GoRenew.com. Customers who renew online will be required to visit an office for the next renewal. The department does not charge a fee for using the Internet service. Florida now requires additional documents to obtain a new or renewed driver license or identification card. If you visit an office to make any type of driver license transaction, you should be prepared by bringing original documents to show proof of identification, Social Security number and residential address (two items).

4A SEB Beacon, June 7, 2012It is extremely rewarding to see alumni and current students working together for a worthwhile event, Lechner said. It will be fun to see our students imagine what life was like 30 years ago by having them contemplate how archaic life must have been compared to todays advanced technologies. Maybe this will inspire our Seminole Middle students to be participants in the next generation of great inventions. Hilda Rosselli, who is now dean of the College of Education at Western Oregon University, is flying in for the event and is excited to reconnect with her students and to examine the artifacts. So many things have changed in our world over the past 30 years, making this a valuable learning experience for current students at Seminole Middle School as well as a trip down memory lane for those who were part of the original project, Rosselli said. Hopefully, we buried an Abba eight-track tape so that we can explain to the current students who grew up with iPods! One of the former students, Julia Boisvert, will be there for the dig and is collaborating with Rosselli on a follow-up study of her ELP classmates. They are planning to share the results of their research at a national conference in February 2013. TIME CAPSULE, from page 1Apaid to maintain them. LaSala said it couldnt be done since the property was private. Bennett said in the case of Lake Sylvia, the county owns the easement. He said there had been past issues with flooding. He suggested that the water quality might have been affected by the use of the easement for flood control. Perhaps were overburdening in terms of water quality, he said. Yauch reminded commissioners that each pond had its history. History is important in this, Bennett said.The historyLake Sylvias history is told by Eco Pond Rescue, a Seminole company that began taking care of the lake in 2008. According to the website, ecopondrescue. com/lake_sylvia.html, Lake Sylvia is approximately 100 years old. It is located between 86th Avenue North and 84th Avenue with 122nd Street to the west and 119th Streetand the Pinellas Trail to the east. The 3.2-acre T-shaped lake started as a cattle pond. After that, it was an irrigation pond for an orange grove. In the 1960s, it became a retention area for Ridgewood Grove Estates subdivision. The ends were dug out and the lake was enlarged. Thirtyseven homes were built along its banks. Up until the early 1980s, only the water from surrounding streets flowed into the lake. Then the county expanded the drainage system to include 86 drains in a one-square-mile area all flowing into Lake Sylvia and then to Lake Walsingham watershed. And thats when the problems began. Overgrowth of water plants became a problem and the lake was treated with chemicals, killing all the vegetation, which sunk to the bottom. By the late 1990s, massive algae blooms were occurring. Finally, the neighborhood hired someone to treat the lake on a monthly basis. More algae died and sunk to the bottom of the lake. Fish kills and the smell of rotten vegetation were big issues. Then residents joined the countys Adopt a Pond program, which allowed residents to receive education and assistance. In 2007, Adopt a Pond was axed due to budget cuts and Eco Pond Rescue was given the contract to maintain the lake on behalf of the property owners living on its perimeter. Eco Pond Rescue was the brainchild of two of the 37 homeowners that live around the lake John Allan, who was a retired general contractor at the time, and his neighbor, Nick Reale, a Pinellas Park firefighter. Eco Pond Rescue utilizes a patent pending venturi aeration system to circulate and aerate ponds and lakes, along with more environmentally-friendly methods. It does not use chemicals, the treatment method of choice for companies hired prior, which Allan says contributed to the problem. Allan and Reale did the vast majority of the cleanup after EPR took over. In February 2009, they reported that the lake was beautiful and had made it through the summer with no fish kills or algae blooms. And there the story on the website ends. Allan explained that several changes have taken place since 2009. First, the lake manager died, and Reale left the company. In addition, Reyner, who is the new lake manager decided to discontinue using Eco Pond Rescue, Allan said. Allan does not dispute that Pinellas County played a part in creating the problems. He also does not dispute that by using Lake Sylvia as part of the stormwater management system that flooding issues in the area were improved. LAKE, from page 1Ainto the crowd afterward, making apprehension difficult. Tactics include breaking windows and other property damage. Black blocs first drew the attention of Americans in 1999 during demonstrations against the World Trade Organization in Seattle. The tactics first surfaced in Europe in the 1980s during protests against squatter evictions, nuclear power and restrictions on abortion. Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos said the primary concern in Pinellas is protesters blocking roadways leading to bridges, preventing delegate buses from leaving the beaches. Among the tactics that may or may not be used are tripods and sleeping dragons. Tripods, MacNamee said, are three tall posts with a person chained to the top with bicycle locks and chains around their necks. You cant take them down without killing them, said MacNamee. Sleeping dragons involve handcuffs and PVC pipe. A series of protesters are handcuffed together by chain through the PVC pipes, which sometimes are filled with concrete. The tactics take police longer than normal to break up, causing traffic to be backed up for longer periods. These are things theyve used in the past, said MacNamee. We have to prepare for these and anything new they may invent. He said the sleeping dragon protesters are often very organized with photographers and lawyers within their group so they can sue and get more money for their next demonstration. They incite police to act badly. Other less visible disruptions for local governments, he said, may include a bombardment of 911 calls to tie up the system and thousands of public records requests to tie up city employees. On another note, MacNamee reminded beach leaders that its hurricane season again and a good time to review plans. Do you have a debris management plan? Do you know where youll go to operate if you cant operate here (on the beaches)? he asked. Are you ready for damage assessment and recovery? MacNamee said the county has grant money available for a Coastal Community Summit that he hopes to organize next winter, probably in February. It would involve officials from Sanibel Island and Galveston, Texas, as officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to discuss what its like to go through a hurricane on a barrier island. The summit will likely take place at the Indian Shores Municipal Center.PPC-MPO updateSara Ward, interim executive director of the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Linda Fisher, principal planner for the Pinellas Planning Council, said the unification of the two organizations is in the works and will likely become official some time by March. The merger will create a new PPC that will oversee land use and transportation planning as an advisory board to the Pinellas County Commission. House Bill 869, which creates the new streamlined board, was signed into law recently by Gov. Rick Scott. Its implementation awaits final approval of the Pinellas MPOs reapportionment plan, which increases membership from 11 to 13 members. The two new reps will represent the beaches and inland communities currently not represented. Representatives will serve two-year terms and a total of four terms for eight years. BIG-C, from page 1ASEMINOLE Three local Rotary Clubs Seminole, Seminole Lake and Largo under the guidance of past district governor Harris Brown, are working to help the lives of more than 75 orphan boys in the Char Fasson orphanage in the poverty stricken area of lower Bangladesh. The orphanage depends on agriculture for its livelihood but without modern agricultural tools or access to potable water, its efforts have not been successful. Local seasonal resident Lesley Siemens recently visited the orphanage and was so impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of the orphans that she came back to ask the Rotary Club of Seminole for help. Brown later invited the Seminole Lake and Largo clubs to assist in raising $3,000 needed to purchase a tractor/tiller and build a water well and pumping tower, which were completed recently. Siemens has since created a website and foundation (www.charfassonchildrensfund.org) to further help the orphanage become more self-sustaining. Rotary International is the largest service organization in the world with more than 33,000 clubs in over 150 countries. Although local Rotary clubs strive to improve the circumstances in their own country and locale, many projects like the Char Fasson project, extend over international boundaries. The Rotary project to rid the world of polio, which began in 1985, has eradicated the disease in all countries except Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Nigeria. Nearly $1 billion has been raised thanks to the cooperation of the United Nations and a large donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Charitable Foundation.

Officials consider possible Pinellas Park medical district Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESSt. Petersburg Colleges Health Education Center would be the center of a proposed medical district encompassing an estimated 120 medical care providers and related businesses in the surrounding area. By JULIANA A. TORRESPINELLAS PARK St. Petersburg College, the city of Pinellas Park, the local chamber of commerce and about 120 medical providers surrounding the colleges Health Education Center would be included in a proposed medical district currently under consideration. Each month, were seeing more and more momentum grow on this project, where the communitys coming together to see the beneficial aspects of the district, said Jon Farris, president for the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce. The district would surround the colleges Health Education Center, which sits at the southeast corner of Park Boulevard and 66th Street. The discussion about the potential district began in November, Farris explained to the Pinellas Park City Council during a workshop May 22. During that first meeting last year, representatives from the chamber, the college and city staff met with a small group of medical providers in the target area to discuss the benefits of creating a medical district. Namely, the district could create an atmosphere for business development as well as foster employment for students of the medical field, Farris said. We believe that theres a real opportunity to seize and capitalize on whats already been established and to enhance, not just the businesses that are already established, but also to entice additional prospects from the outer realms of our city and our community, he said. The group decided to pursue the idea and, after meeting with a larger group of medical providers in January, a group of volunteers began to meet on a monthly basis. From a small group of a few people, we have seen this grow every month that we meet, said Phil Nicotera, provost of the colleges Health Education Center. More and more people come on board (and) want to be a part of this group. Nicotera said the idea of the medical district works into the colleges mission of enriching and becoming a part of the lives of the community surrounding it. Where were located on 66th and Park is a perfect hub to a wheel where all the other medical businesses radiate from. It seems just like a natural place to begin, he said. The group surveyed the rough one-mile radius surrounding the campus, specifically along 66th Street and Park Boulevard, and found about 120 medical related-businesses in the area. One such business is Wellspring Oncology, where the five physicians within the company have embraced the idea, said its director Lan Nguyen. When this project came up, they were very excited about the collaboration and networking opportunity, she said. The volatile economy and increasing competition in the medical field made the collaborative prospect enticing, she added. The group is working toward a launch date of Aug. 11, when the Pinellas County Osteopathic Medical Society will hold a health fair at the St. Petersburg College, offering free physicals and vaccinations to students for the start of the school year. The Osteopathic Society would like to do this to give back to the community thats been so good to them. This is their way of giving back to all of us to supporting them. They hope to make this an annual event, Nicotera said, explaining that the college was happy to co-sponsor the event by providing the space for them to do so. There is still a lot work to be done before that date. The volunteers have organized into nine subcommittees, tackling topics such as organization structure, branding and marketing, district benefits, health trends, funding, partnerships, research and the organization of the health fair. Theres still some real challenges on the table, Farris said. We have to realize that this is one component of an already structured community. One of the challenges the group was working on was how the district might be financed. What were discovering is there are options (that) hopefully within the next two months, will be more official, Farris said. He also said that the group hadnt defined what the citys participation would be, explaining that the groups primary objective during the workshop was to introduce the concept. At some time, if things go right, we may seek fee waivers, but the benefits would have to be presented at the same time, said Joe Incorvia, principal planner for Pinellas Park and also the citys liaison within the medical district meetings. Already the district partners have a number of benefits in mind. At this point, we anticipate it being either improved tax base, expanded businesses and employment opportunities, positive public relations and image, which we hope to really start seeing come August, improved medical services to community, maybe a reduced-cost employee clinic, maybe even a YMCA, Incorvia said. Overall, the council was supportive of the idea. Whatever we can do to make this thing work, well work with it, Councilman Rick Butler said. Councilwoman Patti Johnson asked if the medical district would include veterinary services. Just in Pinellas Park, we have approximately 600 horses. The closest large animal vet is in Odessa, she said. The group was receptive to the idea of both including veterinarians and in using the district to draw specific needs to the community. This was the sort of thing we envisioned, Nguyen said. Mayor Sandra Bradbury agreed that the collaboration could be beneficial to the community. It is an opportunity that has nothing but the opportunity to grow, she said. In other action, during their May 24 meeting, council members: Allowed an automotive repair business to move into a currently vacant lot at 7750 Park Blvd., a request that the citys Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the council deny. Approved a landscape waiver for a Wawa convenience store and gas station to be built at 6200 34th Street. The site, which would be the second Wawa location in Pinellas Park, could be the third to be built in Tampa Bay, a Wawa representative told the council.Briey First area Wawa store breaks ground on GandyPINELLAS PARK Wawa, a food store and gas station based in the mid-Atlantic, broke ground in Pinellas Park May 16, at the site of its first store to be built in the Tampa Bay region. The future store, at 3101 Gandy Blvd., is scheduled to open Feb. 6, 2013 and will be followed by four other stores in Tampa, Port Richey and New Port Richey. Wawa President Chris Gheysens told the group of local dignitaries May 16 that the store planned a longterm commitment in Florida. We scoured the country, really for years to look for the right place for the goose to land, he said, referencing the stores namesake and mascot. Wally has landed right here in Central Florida. We dont take that lightly. The store, which offers fresh food including built-toorder hoagies and coffee and other Wawa brand foods, is based in the states of New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania, where its headquartered. It started its foray into Florida in the Orlando and Kissimmee area, with the first of five stores in that region to open July 18. Its our first real lead market for us outside of our five-state area, said Carol Jensen, Wawa chief marketing officer. Were just really proud to be sharing this milestone with you. The future Pinellas Park store is a part of the Gateway development district, on the north side of Gandy Boulevard. You got the best location in the entire city, Pinellas Park Councilman Rick Butler said. I really am making a prediction that youre probably going to have the No. 1 store in the state of Florida in this location. He and other local officials alluded to a possible second Wawa location in Pinellas Park but gave no details. Gheysens said the company was currently investigating 60 other sites in the region. Wawa came to the area in part because of the name recognition. Each local store employs about 35 people at competitive salaries with eligibility for health benefits and employee ownership in the privately owned company, he said. Were going to make this our new Wawa land. As part of that, were going to spend some money, Gheysens said. We invest about $6 million per location right into the local economy.

Epstein used a ladyfish to catch the trophy fish. Helping him hoist it are Troy Romano, center, and Kris Stein.Wind hampers good fishingStrong onshore winds all week have made it difficult to do much if any beach tarpon fishing let alone any other type of fishing outside of the pass, including bottom fishing for red snapper which opened the end of last week. I suppose this isnt too good of a sign if were battling tropical storms and lowpressure systems this early in the storm season. However an angler always has options around here. Big high tides this week have made it possible to fish for high water redfish for much of the afternoon. Cut pinfish chucked under the mangroves has been the most productive way to get bit. The tide is just too high and the fish are pushed well under the trees making it almost impossible to throw artificial lures. Tarpon are still a possibility on these west winds, especially as we get away from this full moon. You just have to find those deep water Back Bay haunts that might hold a few laid up tarpon in the early morning. Or better yet head down to the Sunshine Skyway. The big bridge is holding good numbers of fish especially on the incoming tide. Free-line threadfins along the pilings and move out to Egmont on the afternoon outgoing tide for a potential crab flush. And as for the red snapper opening, Sunday was the first day I heard of anyone being able to get offshore. Fishing was excellent from those I talked to, as it should be considering we have a thriving population of red snapper off our coast. Best depths seem to be 80 to 130 feet of water. This might seem vague considering that theres a 20-mile gap between the two depths, but the idea is that there are a lot of red snapper out there and they typically get bigger the deeper you go. Target ledges and general hard-bottom areas. Live pinfish are your best bet while frozen sardines and cigar minnows will also work. Until next week ... get bent.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

Viewpoints 15A Beacon, June 7, 2012I called to book a flight on Air Arrogance. Thank you for calling Air Arrogance. Can I make a reservation for you? the flight clerk asked. Yes, Id like to book a flight for my brother and I to Washington, D.C., from Tampa, using my frequent flier miles, I said. I gave her some more information, and I could hear her tapping a keyboard. She said I had 50,000 miles and the two flights required 80,000 miles. I would have to pay the difference. Huh? Last year I was going to book a flight to D.C. and it only required 25,000 miles. Sorry, sir. Im just the messenger, here. I asked her what flights were available on Tuesday, Sept. 18. We have a flight leaving at 6:15 a.m., stopping in Memphis, arriving in D.C. at about 11 a.m. What? No direct flights? Anything else, such as when the sun is out? We have a flight leaving at 8 a.m., but theres a long layover in Detroit at Coleman A. Young International Airport. It arrives in Washington at 3:30. Well, Im sure the fun meter will be bouncing off the wall at the Coleman A. Young International Airport, but Id rather get to D.C. a little earlier. How about a different day? she asked Humor me. More keyboard tapping. She found a flight out of Orlando on a Saturday that was about four hours. So how much will that cost me besides my 50,000 Arrogance miles? The base rate is $310. That doesnt include taxes, seat adjustment charges, baggage fees, tips, check-in charges, and a donation to the Arrogance Flying Foundation. Any other fees? Are you obese? Excuse me? What type of seat would you prefer, sir? Please be aware that theres a surcharge for window seats. Even if all I can see is the wing? Especially if all you can see is the wing. You would be surprised at how many people like to see the flaps go up and down. And pretend there is a little gremlin on the wing, too. Sir? Never mind. Just give me the cheapest rate, please. That would be for our low class area, sir. Enlighten me. Youd be in the cargo area; bring your own pillow. Ive been a loyal Air Arrogance customer for 10 years, using my credit card everywhere. That must mean something to you. How do you get away with treating passengers like dirt? Havent you read our motto? Arrogance is bliss. I cant believe all this. Indirect flights, add-on charges, long layovers. Flying used to be fun. Now its a major hassle. The next thing you know, the airlines will be charging passengers to use the bathroom. Thats $10, Mr. Germond. You have to be kidding me. Save $5; bring your own toilet paper. The latest fiasco involving the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test adds credence to arguments that standardized testing carries too much weight in holding public schools accountable. As widely reported in mid May, an unexpected large drop in students scores on the writing test prompted the state Board of Education to vote to lower the passing score. Floridas Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said his department should have done a better job letting parents know about the tougher standards this year and will make changes to accomplish that goal. Continuous changes in standards over the years, as school administrators and teachers have pointed out, are among the many flaws with what school officials call high-stakes testing. They say that accountability standards based on testing hampers educators efforts to focus on the broad range of learning experiences that promote innovation, creativity, problem solving and other skills. A coalition of national education, civil rights and parents groups are opposed to the use of standardized tests scores for decisions, such as teacher and principal evaluation, student grad promotion and high school graduation. The outcry has led to a national resolution against high-stakes testing that the Pinellas County School Board is being asked to adopt. The School Board should join two other school districts in Florida that have approved the resolution. Quite simply, the current standards are forcing teachers to teach to the test. Consequently, the curriculum is narrowed and the love of learning is reduced. The resolution says that overemphasis on standardized testing is pushing students out of schools and driving teaches away from the profession. Any person who has spent any appreciable time in the schools is bound to hear such sentiments. In Orange County, students worked with a school board member to produce an anti-FCAT video. Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association President Kim Black urged School Board members to adopt the resolution, saying at the boards May 22 meeting our students, teachers and schools have shouldered the burden of an accountability system long enough. Agreed. Concerns about the FCAT, the root of the problem, have been expressed since it was first administered in 1998. Some board members and school Superintendent John Stewart share the concerns. If state officials would consider downplaying tests role, rather than eliminating it altogether as a means of accountability, that would make a big difference in improving morale among teachers, administrators and students. Convincing legislators that changes in the accountability system are overdue wont be easy, based on previous failed attempts to replace the FCAT without other testing criteria. However, support for an overhaul of the process seems to have reached its zenith. Its time for the School Board to join other educators in sending the message, via a resolution, that teaching to the test doesnt make the grade. Its possible to have a love affair from a distance. Example: My fascination with sailboats. Im a lifelong fan of sailboats, as long as theyre tied up at the dock. Once theyre underway and Im aboard, I usually wish I were somewhere else. I got my fill of open waters during my service in the U.S. Navy, many years ago. On my first cruise into the north Atlantic I got so seasick I was soon sent to a mental ward of a Navy hospital. They gave me a bottle of Dramamine and sent me back to sea. Ive been addicted to Dramamine and dry land ever since. But I fully understand why people like to sail. Sailing is a narcotic. It takes over when you get 50 feet underway and the first breeze fills the sails. Two minutes later youre in another universe where the IRS and global warming and Abu Ghraib torture chambers do not exist. You toss your accursed cell phone into the water and your sense of freedom expands to the moon. Lawyers and process servers cant touch you. The air blows clean. You can almost smell the saltwater ions as they hurtle up your nose and begin cleaning your brain. Even so, sailing means danger. Where theres water, danger and death are not far off. If you dont think so, just listen to the news reports. But we cant just blame water. Many of the sailing accidents come from sheer ignorance perpetrated by sailors or wannabe sailors who buy a boat, climb in, and shove off without the slightest training in seamanship. They do this with the full blessing of our state government. In contrast are the men (and women) who know what theyre doing when they take hold of a wheel or a tiller. Recently I watched one, a friend named Clinton Stone. Hes a skipper on a tour boat that takes people out in local waters for sunset cruises and dolphin watching. Hes a licensed captain, calm and laid back in general demeanor, but sharp and serious when hes underway. Its a joy to watch competence in action. For the two hours of a recent outing, Clint was boss. He didnt do a Captain Bligh with his two-person crew. He didnt have to. He issued orders in a conversational tone. Here was a guy who knew exactly what he was doing, and what had to be done. Ive sailed a few miles on powerboats, which are called stinkpots by some sailboat fans. I dont intend to get into the never-ending sail vs. power squabble, but Ill still have to cast my vote for sailboats. Among many reasons is that on a sailboat you can have a civilized conversation. I once worked for a company that maintained a large, nifty powerboat on which we entertained clients and assorted bigwigs. My job was to be friendly, serve another drink and not fall overboard. And yell. To communicate, you had to shout. The boats engine drowned out normal speech. At the end of an afternoons outing, our throats were raw. Such barbarism doesnt occur on a sailboat. Sailors are often brave, to the point of crazy. They attempt to cross entire oceans single-handedly in boats initially intended for use on Boca Ciega Bay. Often they make it. Others buy $10 million boats and enter them in international races whose goals include trying to trick and confuse their competitors. No one knows when the first sailboat was built. The earliest known representation of a boat was a drawing, found in Kuwait, which dates back to 5,000 B.C. or before. It was around then that the first sailing observation originated. It said that the two happiest days in a sailboat owners life are (A) when he buys the boat, and (B) when he sells it. What I like best about sailing is the way it has enriched the English language. If any worker knows the ropes it means he/she is familiar with how the organization operates. Aboard ship, it means a sailor who literally knows the purpose of each of the many ropes (more accurately known as lines, sheets and cables). Do you know someone whos a loose cannon? Aboard a well-armed sailing ship, a loose cannon could knock a hole in the ships hull. Does your organization have a slush fund? Slush was the fat remaining in salted meat storage barrels aboard ship. The slush was collected and sold, and the income was used to benefit the ships crew. Final thought: we should all be grateful to sailors. If not for them, wed still be sitting in Europe, dying of the plague and wondering what might happen if we only headed west for a few thousand miles.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor of the Clearwater Sun.

Last week, Tampa Bay Times Senior Correspondent Lucy Morgan stopped by to cyber-chide a newsman-turned-flack named Dave Parro, who left a suburban paper in Illinois to promote Aurora University and now mocks noble-minded left-behinds in an essay he calls Reasons Journalists Should Consider PR. Morgan was the first Romenesko reader to post a response. One reason you should NOT jump to PR lots of people trust reporters to speak truth to power each time one leaves and goes to work for power, it diminishes the credibility of the remaining reporters ... If you doubt Morgan, log on to any Florida news site, any time. Power is lining its pockets with both hands, and truth needs all the help it can get from our dwindling ranks of hard-news reporters. Matt Dixon of the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville has been keeping the journalism faith, churning out riveting tales of private philanthropy at public expense. Thanks to Dixon, we now know that Sens. Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville, and Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, turned Tallahassees Florida A&M University into a money laundry for special interests in their far-away districts. With a little help from friends in even higher places, Wise and Siplin were able to send millions to a student assistance program that exists only on paper at FAMUs bi-partisan Bermuda Triangle. The money later emerged in the coffers of hometown non-profits tied to Wise and Siplin. Meanwhile, Fixer-in-Chief Steve MacNamara is packing for an early departure from Gov. Rick Scotts office, thanks to Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief Mary Ellen Klas and Gary Fineout of the Associated Press. The governor kvetched like a Miami Dance Mom, berating the press for being mean to MacNamara, a lawyer, lobbyist and communications professor whose skill set includes toadying up to important men, shameless self-promotion and selling everybody to everybody. Klas and Fineouts reporting exposed him for the grubby, grasping Rasputin that he is. Over on the left coast, the Hillsborough County Childrens Board is circling the wagons and trashing Tampa Bay Times reporter Jodie Tillman for shedding light on issues of incompetence and self-dealing that the board should have identified years ago. Its not the only Florida social services organization in need of an ethics enema. Too bad we cant clone Tillman. As Dixons story was about to break, Wise whined that the Times-Union was trying to besmirch his character. Actually, senator, you besmirched it yourself, and Florida is darn lucky that there are still people left to hold up that mirror youre looking into.Florence Snyder is a Tallahassee-based corporate lawyer who has spent most of her career in and around newspapers.

What do you think?Arrogance is blissA dangerous monsterEditor: Dog fighting has been a serious sport for millenniums due to bloody excitement and betting money. Pit bull breeders prosper with their reputations depending on how their dogs do in the pit. Pit bulls are bred to fight well because they want to fight more and longer than the other dog, and because pain doesnt discourage them. A measure of ferocity is eagerness to lunge at another dog on command, or without. A measure of pleasure in fighting, or pain after wounding, is tail position during a fight. Up is good. Wagging is best. Winners are bred. Champions are held for stud. Losers are destroyed, including females that wont scratch any time, every time. There are some nasty tests but the subject is ugly. Nothing about such behavior, man or beast, is attractive except to sick people in a sick society. Dog fighting was a major sport in medieval Europe. They were pitted against other fierce animals, often bulls or bears. Every physical and mental characteristic of the poor, innocent pit bull was put there on purpose by nasty people. Complex behaviors, dog or human, are genetically influenced. Hundreds of generations of selective breeding created a fierce, impulsive animal. Many believe that these killing dogs expertly bred only to fight viciously and senselessly lose their genetic heritage in a generation or two and magically turn into loving teddy bears. With the best treatment they may act nice, but theres a dangerous monster under there which possibly may, or probably may not, attack. You can never be sure.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Waite, whose career spans more than three decades and who has had numerous hit singles, is touring in support of his latest solo release Rough and Tumble. The singer/songwriter collaborated with Matchbox 20 lead guitarist/songwriter Kyle Cook to forge an eclectic collection of brand new material. It is Waites first solo release since 2007s Downtown: Journey of a Heart. Inspired by British blues bands like Free, Small Faces and Humble Pie, Waite got his start as the lead singer of The Babys who, within a short time, had Top 40 hits with Isnt It Time? and Every Time I Think of You. After five albums with The Babys, John Waite moved to New York to go solo during the early 1980s. His first solo album, Ignition, boasted the MTV/rock radio staple Change, which was soon followed with a No. 1 and what is undeniably one of the all-time greatest pop/rock ballads, Missing You. The song topped the international charts and today remains a radio staple around the globe. Waite returned to the top of the charts during a two-album tenure as front man for the pop/rock supergroup Bad English, whose No. 1 single When I See You Smile sparked sold-out concert tours and a succession of Billboard Hot 100 Hits.

That same year, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson vanished for three weeks. Amelia Earhart disappeared during her 1937 around-the-world flight and was never seen again. Agatha and Aimee never spoke of what happened during their disappearances. Vanishing Point, a musical fantasy, brings these three women together on a road trip through time and space as they recall their past and explore their future, stepping in and out of one anothers lives. The show has a cast of three: the actresses play multiple parts. The cast includes Lauren L. Wood, Victoria AdamsZischke and Kathleen Brooke Davis.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Madagascar 3: Europes Most WantedGenre: Animation, comedy and family Cast: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric The Entertainer, Andy Richter, Frances McDormand, Jessica Chastain, Martin Short and Bryan Cranston Director: Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath and Conrad Vernon Rated: PG Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent Madagascar style.PrometheusGenre: Science fiction Cast: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron Director: Ridley Scott Rated: R Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discovers a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Bel AmiGenre: Drama and biography Cast: Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci Director: Declan Donnellan Rated: R Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy, who travels through 1890s Paris. From cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, Duroy uses his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitutes embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.Lola VersusGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Greta Gerwig, Joel Kinnaman, Zoe Lister-Jones, Hamish Linklater, Bill Pullman, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Jay Pharaoh and Debra Winger Director: Daryl Wein Rated: R Greta Gerwig plays Lola, a 29-year-old woman dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luke (Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before their wedding. Throwing herself into dating in New York City at almost 30, she turns to her loyal best friend Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones) for advice, crosses the line with her lovelorn friend Henry (Hamish Linklater) and fends off the unsolicited advice of her audacious parents, Robin (Debra Winger) and Lenny (Bill Pullman). As Lolas well-ordered world dissolves into a blur of romantic humiliations, professional blunders and alcohol-fueled antics, she realizes that for the first time ever, she doesnt know what to do next. Lola struggles to adjust to life on her own and slowly begins to realize that she is the only one in control of her fate.Peace, Love & MisunderstandingGenre: Comedy Cast: Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Chace Crawford, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nat Wolff, Marissa ODonnell and Elizabeth Olsen Director: Bruce Beresford Rated: R Two-time Academy Award-nominated director Bruce Beresford showcases a brilliant performance from two-time Academy Awardwinner Jane Fonda in Peace, Love and Misunderstanding. For uptight Manhattan lawyer Diane (Oscar-nominee Catherine Keener), crazy means driving her teenage son Jake (Nat Wolff) and daughter Zoe (Elizabeth Olsen) to Woodstock to visit their grandmother Grace (Fonda). The crazy part is that the kids have never met Grace. In fact, Diane hasnt spoken to her mother in 20 years. Grace is the epitome of the term hippie: she stages protests and hootenannies in the town square, smokes (and sells) a lot of dope, and howls at the moon once a month with her goddess-worshipping girlfriends. But whats meant to be a weekend getaway turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets, and self-discovery.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.TBNweek ly.com.

In 1967-68, the band released five Top 40 singles included Kind of a Drag, Dont You Care, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Hey Baby, Theyre Playing Our Song and Susan. The bands success in 1967 would lead them to be named The Most Listened To Band in America by Billboard Magazine.The Grass Roots The Grass Roots began as a project headed by P.F. Sloan, a California songwriter, and Steve Barri, a producer. The duo wrote a number of songs hoping to capitalize on the folk rock scene. When their work stirred interest, they went in search of a band to fit the music. A San Francisco group known as The Bedouins became the first incarnation The Grass Roots in 1966. It was the third incarnation of the group, however, that went on to success. A Los Angeles band called The 13th Floor took up the challenge and scored the groups first Top 10 hit in 1967 with Lets Live for Today. The Grass Roots went on to chart 14 Top 40 hit singles, including Midnight Confessions, Sooner or Later and Temptation Eyes. They have sold more than 20 million records worldwide.

Puckett has performed on more than 30 network television shows and prime time specials during his career. The Happy Together Tour is an excellent and diverse lineup from our era, said Puckett in a press release promoting the tour.

Tickets range from $42.50 to $68. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. This years Happy Together Tour will be headed up by The Turtles with Flo and Eddie. Sharing the bill will be Micky Dolenz of The Monkees, The Buckinghams, The Grass Roots and Gary Puckett and The Union Gap. The annual Happy Together Tour has become a musical focal point for fans of 1960s pop rock. For several years running, the tour has drawn devotees of the s sound, bringing to the stage icons such as The Buckinghams, The Association and Mark Lindsay. The phenomenon began in 2010 when the bands joined forces to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original show, which took to the stage back in 1985.From the beginning, a driving force behind the tour has been The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie. These two legends Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan from Westchester describe themselves as the one with the curly hair and glasses, and the other with the beard Their official biography, provided by Paradise Artists, explains that they have always been smart enough to have responded to the latest worthwhile trends in a fashion and that has yielded an abundance of quality records, and more than their share of hits. In fact, the Turtles are considered the closest America ever came to having its own Beatles. The Turtles wrote hits, which were better, conceived and arranged and, like the Beatles, transcended so many styles. Raning from outright protest pop rock, their hits include It Aint Me Babe, Let Me Be, You Baby, Can I Get to Know You Better, Happy Together, You Showed Me, Shed Rather Be With Me, Elenore, Shes My Girl and You Know What I Mean. Happy Together remains a staple on classic rock radio and has been featured in a number of films, including 1983s Heart Like A Wheel, 1987s Making Mr. Right, 1990s The Naked Gun, 2002s Adaptation, 2002s Bubble Boy and 2007s The Simpsons Movie. The song has been covered by dozens of artists such as Weezer, Petula Clark, Captain and Tennille, Lisa Loeb and Filter. Aside from touring, Volman and Kaylan keep busy in the music business. Most recently, the two oversaw the production and release of a new Turtles compilation CD in 2009. Save The Turtles: The Turtles Greatest Hits was issued on their own FloEdCo label. Following is a look at the other acts included in this years Happy Together Tour:Micky Dolenz After selling more than 65 million records worldwide as the star of The Monkees TV show, Micky Dolenz has continued to make his mark in other areas of the entertainment business, through his varied career as an actor, director, producer and performer. In 1965, Dolenz was one of four actors chosen out of 400 applicants who responded to a trade ad announcing auditions for a new TV show about rock n roll band. The concept was inspired by the Beatles film, A Hard Days Night. I was hired as an actor to play the role of a singing drummer, Dolenz said in his Paradise Artists biography. I had to learn to play drums. The Monkees debut single, Last Train to Clarksville, featured Dolenz on lead vocals. It hit the charts in September 1966 and rocketed to No. 1. Two days later, the television show debuted on NBC to great success. Ultimately, The Monkees achieved their greatest success as recording artists. Their first four albums The Monkees, More of the Monkees, Headquarters and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd. reached No. 1 on the charts and they had three consecutive No. 1 singles, including Last Train to Clarksville, Im a Believer and Daydream Believer. The groups first five albums also went gold. In 1996, The Monkees again joined together for a 30-year reunion summer tour around America. The response was such that they toured again the following year, this time finishing up in England. Hey, hey, here I come, said Dolenz in a press release promoting the tour. Im so looking forward to this years Happy Together Tour. I cant Gary Puckett and The Union Gap will be among the performers.
