VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenLawmakers have set pathetic record for unconstitutional bills, columnist says.. ... Page 11A. Local flag flap forces adjustments By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The city will soon be installing brackets on its fire department vehicles, which will allow the proper flying of the U.S. flag. The issue came to a head July 13 when the city received a complaint that a fire engine from Station 29, located at 113th Street and 70th Avenue, was going to a call with a flag flying incorrectly on a small pole out of a side window. Fire Chief George Bessler said the firefighters flying the flag had good intentions but it violated the U.S. Code for flying a United States flag. Its unfortunate, said Bessler. The majority of Americans dont understand the U.S. Code, which is borne out of the U.S. Constitution. According to Title 36, Chapter 10, Section 175, paragraph (b) of the U.S. Code, Bessler said, a flag can be flown on a vehicle only if it is attached to the chassis or on the right front fender. Bessler said he instituted a policy about eight months ago that banned incorrect flying of a U.S. flag from the rear of a fire engine. At the same time he requested proposals for flying a flag from firefighters that would be in compliance with the U.S. code. Bessler said he never received a proposal from the firefighters or any employee of the fire department. The new stainless steel brackets are being designed and forged by city workers.

Local prideSeminoles Cusmano set for first year as Bucs cheerleaderPhoto courtesy of TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSTricia Cusmano was recently named to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleading squad. She is a 2010 graduate of Seminole High School. By BRAD RICHARDSONSEMINOLE Tricia Cusmano of Seminole fulfilled a longtime dream recently when she was named one of the 34 talented women to join the Tampa Buccaneers cheerleading squad this season. This was her second tryout for the team. It was three rounds of auditions within a month long process and with each round came more and more cuts. After dancing in front of a judges panel and making it into the final round with just the two coaches making the final decision, she said it was great to know that the hard work and many years had finally paid off. I just jumped up and down screaming, said Cusmano. I was at home when I found out. My name was the last one posted online, so I had to go through every ones names to get to mine at the bottom. I cant really explain the moment other than it was very exciting and so surreal. For the 20-year-old Cusmano, cheerleading has been an ever-going part of her life. Although she participated in soccer and swimming in her youth, she felt most comfortable when she was holding a pair of pompoms, dancing and cheering on the home team. I just enjoy being in front of a crowd and Im just a very positive person, said Cusmano. I always have a smile on my face and I really enjoy expressing that in front of the fans. I just really like the sport of cheerleading. This is not her first time getting the experience of what its like to be a part of the Buccaneers organization. She first got what it was like at age 10 when her mom, Rhonda Cusmano, enrolled her in the Junior Buccaneer cheerleaders. She said the first time cheering next to them was an experience she would never forget. They were role models to me and I knew then and there, thats what I wanted to do, Tricia said. My coach now, Catherine Boyd, was one of the Bucs cheerleaders back then, and in one of the group pictures that was taken, Im right See CUSMANO, page 4ACouncil OKs minor development change By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Homeowners in a proposed 20-home subdivision east of Lake Seminole may end up a little closer to one another than originally planned. The City Council preliminarily approved a proposed development agreement amendment July 10 that would allow Frain Enterprises Inc. of Seminole and Outer Ring LLC of Phoenix to build single-family homes on the site with a 5-foot side setback. A second public hearing and vote on the change is scheduled for July 24. The development agreement was originally approved Nov. 8 with 6-foot side setbacks on each lot but the builders need the additional foot on each side to construct the models planned for the 4.9-acre site at 9075 82nd Ave. N. Are we creating problems for ourselves in the future (with setbacks) if we pass this? asked Councilor Jim Quinn. City Manager Frank Edmunds said no because the vote is project specific. Homes will be required to have a minimum 1,400 square feet of living area. The unnamed subdivision would feature a single northsouth street with 10 homes on each side. The end of the street would feature a T-turnaround, as opposed to a cul-de-sac, and a wall would be constructed around the development to give nearby homeowners more privacy. Plans call for the street to be landscaped with oaks and crepe myrtles with sidewalks on both sides. In other action, councilors: Authorized Edmunds to enter into an agreement with Science Applications International Corp. of Maitland for emergency disaster debris monitoring services. The agreement would only come into play during an emergency and does not require the city to pay SAIC until its services are rendered. Debris monitoring and management are required by FEMA for the city to be reimbursed for its cleanup costs by See COUNCIL, page 4ATougher standards take a toll on school grading By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLThe Florida Department of Education released elementary and middle school grades on July 11. As expected, numerous schools declined in grades, due to the calculations using more rigorous standards and new achievement levels. According to a FDOE press release, statewide, 89 percent of elementary and middle schools earned an A, B or C grade, and 11 percent earned a D or F grade. This has been a year of tremendous change for Floridas students, teachers and schools, said Commissioner of Education, Gerard Robinson. Floridas economic future depends on preparing our students for success. The high standards we have in place today will help our students prepare for college, the workforce and life. I am confident that we are on the right path to prepare our students to compete with the best in the nation and around the world. In Pinellas County, grades overall dropped or stayed the same. In the Tampa Bay Newspapersreadership area including 54 schools in Clearwater, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Palm Harbor, Largo, Seminole and Pinellas Park, Madeira Beach there were 22 schools that decreased in grades, five that increased, and 27 that stayed the same. Of those that stayed the same, 21 of those were maintaining A grades. Of all of these 54 schools, 25 of these were A grades and eight were Ds. Florida has raised its expectations for school grades five times in the last 10 years. The results show that after an initial drop, school grades improved consistently in the years that followed, the press release said.

The Pinellas Community Housing Foundations Proud Ground Pinellas program provides quality, move-in ready homes at incredible prices. The purchase price of a home is greatly reduced because the cost of the land is removed. Instead, the homeowner pays a modest monthly ground lease, while enjoying all the benefits of traditional homeownership. For a limited time, a grant of up to $10,000 is available to assist with closing costs. Funding for the unique program comes from the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Foreclosed and/or abandoned properties are purchased and renovated to help stem the negative impacts the unattended properties can have in communities. Proud Ground Pinellas homes feature energy saving amenities and Florida-friendly landscaping to help lower monthly household expenses. Hurricane preparedness enhancements provide additional peace of mind. Participants in Proud Ground Pinellas benefit from free homebuyer education classes, and the program provides ongoing tools and support to ensure a successful homeownership experience. Proud Ground Pinellas is an exciting housing opportunity for veterans, said Anthony Jones, executive director of the Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County. We appreciate the service and dedication of our military and hope this new program will assist them with their dream of homeownership. Veterans and active service personnel who wish to apply to the program must have a minimum credit score of 640 and income may not exceed 120 percent of the Area Median Income. As an example, for a family of three the limit is $60,900. Additional information is available on the Proud Ground Pinellas website at: www.pinellascounty .org/community/proudgroundpinellas.htm, or you can email proudgroundpinellas@pinellascounty.org or call Pinellas County Community Development at 464-8210.The Pinellas Community Housing Foundations Proud Ground Pinellas program provides quality, move-in ready homes, such as this one in Safety Harbor.Briey State disqualifies candidate for U.S. House seatCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections announced that per the State Division of Elections, Nina Hayden, Democratic candidate for U.S. House District 13 has been disqualified. The following notice will be provided to voters eligible to vote in the Democratic Primary. A candidate in the Democratic Primary race for the office of Representative in Congress, District 13, has been disqualified resulting in an unopposed candidate race. A vote cast in this race will not change the outcome as the remaining candidate, Jessica Ehrlich, is deemed by law to be nominated for that race. Ballots are already printed. The Pinellas County Elections Office will provide the states statement on its website, sample ballots, in mail ballot kits, at early voting locations and at the polling places within District 13 on Election Day.PSTA June ridership defies T.S. DebbyST. PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announces that despite the effects of Tropical Storm Debby, ridership numbers for June increased 3 percent over last year. To endure a period of weather like Tropical Storm Debby and still show a ridership increase over last year is nothing short of amazing, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. Last month the agency gave 1,131,217 rides, which is a 3 percent increase over June 2011 and just shy of the all-time record for June set in 2010. This is further proof as to how vital mass transit is for our community and economy, Lasher said. PSTA officials say that last months ridership was only 544 rides short of an all-time record for the June. They are confident that had it not been for Tropical Storm Debby, they would have easily broken that mark. Officials are ecstatic with the increase over last year and look forward to setting another new ridership record this month, Lasher said.

Lic. #MA47438Justin Maina, LMT Proposed county budget calls for millage rate increases By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER County Administrator Bob LaSalas budget for fiscal year 2013, includes proposed millage rate increases for the general fund as well as Emergency Medical Services, six fire districts and Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District. LaSala prefaced his July 10 budget presentation with talk about the uncertainty of economic conditions in the coming years and the steps taken to preserve the countys financial stability. He said his budget was a story about a diverse business that was prioritizing and managing its business lines to address current fiscal issues. He talked about decisions made since the economic downturn began in 2008 and the adjustments made over time to address fewer dollars coming in to pay for county government. He cautioned against going over the tipping point, which he believes we are close to or at that point. We cant respond in an emergency as quickly, he said. He gave an example of cleanup in the county parks after Tropical Storm Debby. Since budget cuts necessitated the use of roving park staff, instead of dedicated park staff, parks were cleaned up one-at-a-time as opposed to having work ongoing in all of them simultaneously. He said workplace morale was another problem due to stagnant salaries, ongoing uncertainty and increased workloads. The budget doesnt propose a pay raise for county employees until FY 2016. Service delivery would be crippled by additional (budget) reductions, he told the commission. From 2007 to 2012, constitutional officers and independent agencies have lost 730 positions, or 19 percent of their combined workforce, and now have the lowest position count since 1991. Departments governed by the Board of County Commissioners have decreased by 975 positions or 35 percent and now has the lowest position count since 1985. The BCC has reduced its budget by more than $100 million, almost 39 percent; the Sheriffs Office budget is down $72.5 million, or almost 27 percent; the remaining constitutional officers have cut $14.4 million from their collective budgets, or 26 percent; and independent agencies have cut $6.6 million, or 27 percent. Part of LaSalas budget balancing strategy has been the funding of a service level stabilization account, which was established to cover potential future shortfalls in the general fund. The balance of the fund is $28.6 million, which represents money saved by making reductions over the amount needed to balance the budget in the years 2010 through 2012. To date, none of the money has been spent. LaSala recommends beginning to draw down the SLSA in 2013, along with limiting growth and continuing to streamline operations and increase efficiencies. However, in part due to the unfunded mandate from the state for Medicaid, revenue coming in to the general fund budget is expected to be $24.1 million less than expected revenue. The longterm shortfall is projected at $30 million to 40 million. The numbers dont include the potential for a return to paying full cost of employees pensions. LaSala says the time has come to increase the countywide millage rate. He recommends an increase of .25 mills, primarily to pay for Medicaid. His budget includes no change in the millage rate for the municipal services taxing unit, which is paid by the 270,000 residents who live in unincorporated areas of Pinellas. The sheriffs budget makes up 75 percent of MSTU expenditures. Another problem area is the Emergency Medical Services Fund. LaSala proposes balancing the EMS budget using a 21.7 percent increase in the millage rate, going from .8506 to 1.0355. He said additional millage rate increases would be necessary in the future, if commissioners didnt find a way to decrease expenses. Due to a millage cap of 1.5 mills, other sources of revenue for EMS might be needed in the future, he said. Funding for the fire districts continues to be a challenge. Six of 12 fire districts have proposed millage rate increases in 2013, including Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo, Safety Harbor, Tierra Verde and South Pasadena. Water and sewer funds will remain in balance, LaSala said, as long as proposed rate increases go into effect as scheduled. LaSalas budget also includes a 14.2 percent increase for the Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District, which was requested by the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency. The increase restores the maximum millage rate that was rolled back due to state law in fiscal year 2008. LaSala went over a number of additional budget requests not included in his budget, including $655,000 for code enforcement, $135,000 for watershed management monitoring, $149,000 for OPUS staffing for the Clerk of the Circuit Court, $250,000 for OPUS staff for Business Technology Services, $78,000 for wide area network redundancy requested by BTS, and $470,000 from BTS for Wi-Fi connectivity; $840,000 for health and human services needs and others. Commissioners are expected to begin budget discussions on July 17. Proposed millage rates are set for tentative approval on July 26 in time to go out with the Property Appraisers TRIM notices on Aug. 20. Once the tentative millage rates are approved, they cannot be increased; however, they can be lowered. The first public budget hearing is Sept. 6 with the final hearing to approve millage rates and budgets scheduled on Sept. 18. The new fiscal year starts Oct. 1. Annexation negotiations continue By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Some Pinellas County residents who live in unincorporated areas may get to annex into a city sooner than planned if officials can agree on the process. Pinellas County Commissioners asked staff July 10 to continue negotiations with municipalities on an interlocal service boundary agreement on annexation within enclaves. Commissioners rejected draft language, continuing to insist that unincorporated residents have a choice under the proposed changes. An interlocal service boundary agreement would allow non-contiguous voluntary annexation within Type A enclaves, which are defined by state statute as unincorporated improved or developed areas that are enclosed on all sides by a single municipality. Staff has been working toward an agreement with municipalities with Type A enclaves since Dec. 6, 2011. Nine municipalities and two fire districts have agreed to take part in negotiations: Clearwater, Dunedin, Kenneth City, Largo, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, St. Petersburg, Seminole, Tarpon Springs, Lealman Special Fire District and Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Planning Department staff and the county attorneys office prepared a draft agreement to use as a starting point for negotiations. Commissioners approved the proposed language March 27, adding an amendment that gave property owners with existing annexation agreements a choice. Staff scheduled a meeting with representatives of the municipalities and fire districts on April 27 at Largo City Hall. The municipalities submitted a revised draft agreement to the county in May. The fire districts had not responded as of July 10. Commissioner Nancy Bostock questioned the change to the agreement made by the municipalities that applied to only some property owners. Gordon Beardslee, Planning Department program administrator, said the cities had asked for an exception for properties for which the property owner was the original signer of an annexation agreement. Those properties would automatically become annexed if an interlocal agreement were approved. Bostock expressed concern for property owners that signed an annexation agreement expecting it to be considerable time before their property would be eligible to become part of a city. They signed under old rules, she said. Were putting in new rules. She said nothing stopped any property owner who would become eligible for annexation through the interlocal agreement to request going ahead on a voluntary basis. She insisted that the new rules include consent for all property owners. Commissioner Susan Latvala said the purpose of an agreement for enclaves was to make it easier to provide services, such as water and trash, to residents in unincorporated areas surrounded by a municipality. They were forced to sign (annexation agreements) to get city services, Latvala said. Annexation agreements between cities and property owners are commonplace in Pinellas. The agreement allows property owners to receive city services before the property is eligible for annexation in exchange for a promise that property owners will voluntarily apply for annexation when the property does become eligible. The result is gaping holes in cities. We need to do the right thing and close the holes, she said. Bostock was still concerned about changing the terms of existing agreements. Now theres an exception to the exception, she said. Commissioner Neil Brickfield also questioned why there would be a different set of rules dependent on who had signed an annexation agreement. The thinking is that if the person who signed is still the owner, there would be no problem. It (annexation) would be voluntary, Beardslee said.

4A SEB Beacon, July 19, 2012behind her. Its kind of cool to look back at that from time to time. After that experience, she wanted to continue it further. She started youth cheerleading at SYAA for peewee football games. When she entered middle school in the fall of 2003, she began cheerleading for the volleyball and basketball teams. At that point, it was no longer the parents who were the audience watching; now it was her closest friends and classmates. It was kind of hard being in front of people you know in school, said Cusmano. When it was SYAA, I knew a few people in the stands, but when I cheered at Seminole Middle, we were very close to the bleachers so it was a closer contact with the fans. So very little room to screw up. By the time she entered her freshman year at Seminole High School, multitasking became a balancing act. While being on the swim team, she joined the freshmen cheerleading squad as well as the high schools competitive cheer squad. I always knew I wanted to be a Warhawk cheerleader after all the times that I looked through my mom and aunts high school yearbooks, said Cusmano. With competitive cheerleading, there is a lot of hard work and dedication in order to keep your endurance up. Practices were three times a week for two hours. Once we had the routine down, we would have to do it over and over. With all-star cheerleading your not cheering for the team, you are the team. By her senior year, she had been the captain and co-captain of two different squads starting from her freshman year, including varsity football cheerleading. She maintained over a 3.75 GPA and was a member of the National Honors Society. After she graduated in 2010, she decided to make the attempt at becoming a Buccaneer cheerleader. Although she did make it to the final round, she was cut. A year later, she decided to try for another cheerleading squad. She decided to cheer for the Tampa Bay Lightning as a Lightning Girl. With the Lightning games, there was a lot of interaction with the fans and we did a lot with the crowd by always trying to get them on their feet, said Cusmano. There wasnt that much dancing, but we had to keep everyone energized. When she finally made the Buccaneers squad, she realized all the hard work had finally paid off. According to Cusmano, upon making the squad, what she found interesting was many of the women saw the squad as a bonus, but most of all a privilege. So many of them have full-time, 9-to-5 jobs, said Cusmano. We have teachers, career women, businesswomen; even car dealers are on the team. Everyone has their careers and then this is just the cherry on top of the whip cream. Along with performing on the sidelines for the Bucs, she is currently a full time student at St. Petersburg College in Seminole. She is doing her prerequisite courses and plans to apply for the dental hygienist program in November. I schedule my classes to balance with my cheerleading obligations. School is always during the daytime; practices for the Bucs are at night, said Cusmano. I wanted to originally go into nursing, but I decided on going into the dental hygienic program because I really like working with kids. I want to go into pediatric dentistry. Cusmano will make her first appearance as a cheerleader during training camp on July 27. Her first game appearance will be Friday, Aug. 17 when the Bucs play host to the Tennessee Titans. That same game will feature the Junior Buccaneer cheerleaders who will be performing along side the squad during halftime. According to Cusmano, that will be a huge dj vu feeling for her. Im just excited for the moment that I just walk out onto that field and just know at this moment and time, its real, she said. Looking at those girls, its going to remind me from where I came from to where I am now. CUSMANO, from page 1Athe federal government.

Moved the Dec. 25 City Council meeting back a week to Tuesday, Dec. 18 and passed a motion to close city offices on Monday, Dec. 24. Councilor Leslie Waters suggested the city form a development committee for a new park at the site of the former Jesses Landing restaurant on Park Boulevard. Councilor Bob Matthews suggested public hearings for input on the park project. Edmunds said two auto electric charge stations being built by Progress Energy are under construction at the Seminole Recreation Center parking lot. COUNCIL, from page 1Aimplementing the Common Core State Standards in 2014-15, the progress seen over the next few years will smooth the transition to the more challenging standards. Statewide, 43 percent of schools received A grades; 26 percent got Bs; 20 percent got Cs; 9 percent got Ds; and 2 percent got Fs. Throughout the entire county, there were six schools who earned F grades: Azalea Middle, Fairmount Park Elementary, Maximo Elementary, Melrose Elementary, Imagine Charter School and Imagine Middle School. The FDOE sent a letter home to parents in July, saying that the state uses the students FCAT and end-of-course assessment to help calculate school grades. Schools that improve a letter grade or earn an A receive additional state funds up to $100 per student in recognition of their academic achievement. Struggling schools can get assistance and additional funding an average of almost $2,000 per student for F schools to help them improve, the letter said. To help prepare students for college and careers, the state has been moving to higher academic standards, new assessments that measure students progress toward meeting the standards, and higher academic levels for subjects such as reading and math. These new standards, assessments and achievements are being used to determine school grades this year. The letter also explained how in the past when standards were changed, there were initial drops in grades but then they improved, assuring parents that Florida will continue to adjust and invest where necessary to ensure academic success. The individual grade breakdown for the TBNarea schools is as follows:Elementary schools Anona Elementary Sunk to a B this year after maintaining A for at least the previous five years.

SCHOOLS, from page 1A Photo by BOB McCLUREFrom left, Jolie Thellab, 7; Lakoda Barnes, 6; and Max Thellab, 8, read to Cavalier King Daniels Spaniels Georgy and Willy as Ellen Leber watches.Canine comfort By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Children and dogs just simply go together. So when the Seminole Community Library had the opportunity to bring in a pair of dogs from a local owner, Youth Services Supervisor Jill Storm gave the thumbs up. It isnt the first time the library has used dogs in its childrens reading program. Its been done twice before for short intervals. But for one reason or another it was discontinued. A few months ago, Seminole resident Ellen Leber thought her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels might make a good addition to the childrens program. So Leber contacted library aid Lynn Losasso about the possibility and Losasso got the ball rolling. I love dogs, said Losasso. So I pushed Jill (Storm) to get them in here. Shortly thereafter, Lebers two dogs Georgy and Willy were a part of the weekly Magic Carpet Reading Club on Mondays at 10 a.m. During club meetings, children read to the dogs from various books of their choice. The main objective of the program is to provide a relaxed and dog-friendly atmosphere, which allows students in kindergarten to third grade to practice the skill of reading. The idea is to build excitement about reading. Dogs are very non-judgmental and this provides a nurturing environment, said Losasso. Its a fun thing that encourages children to read. Leber has been heavily involved with Project PUP, which stands for Pets Uplifting People, for about seven years. She has used her animals as therapy dogs at nursing homes and with invalid veterans, as well as with terminal patients referred by Suncoast Hospice. When she noticed other dogs being used in other area libraries in childrens reading programs, Leber decided to approach the Seminole Library. Were thrilled theyre doing it, Leber said. I saw another librarian doing it and I thought it would be good here. She (Leber) has enhanced the program and made people come to it, said Losasso. Due to the success this summer, Leber will continue to use her dogs in conjunction with the childrens reading club this fall during the week after school. For more information on the librarys childrens reading program, call 394-6913. For information about Project Pup, call Leber at 593-9395.Project PUP comes to Seminole LibraryRedington Shores maintains millage By WAYNE AYERSREDINGTON SHORES There will be no increase in the towns tax rate in fiscal 2013. The City Commission began a discussion of the towns budget for the upcoming year at the July 11 regular meeting with a decision to leave the millage rate at 2.0. That has been the rate for the past three years. Despite a flat tax rate, the town is expecting an additional $25,000 in ad valorem tax revenue next year, due to a forecast increase in property values. Overall town revenues are expected to rise by only about $8,000. A predicted 43 percent drop in permit fees will erase much of the gain from property tax revenues. Due to an expected slowdown in construction activity, the fee income should be less next year, Mayor Bert Adams said in a later comment.Abandoned beach property law urgedCommissioner Casey Wojcik and a concerned resident are urging tougher enforcement of a law prohibiting articles from being left on the beach overnight. The code section dealing with abandoned property on beaches says items left on the beach for 24 hours will be considered abandoned property, and subject to confiscation and disposition by the town. Mentioned are chairs, lounges, tents, canopies, volleyball nets, and other such items. Wojcik wants the law to read, Property left on the beach more than 24 hours will be confiscated. Wojcik said left-behind articles cluttering the beaches is an ongoing problem, and he wants people to get the message, If you leave it out more than 24 hours, the town is going to take it. Resident Red McGarry said he especially objects to tents remaining on the beach overnight. This is regularly violated on weekends with people claiming their place on Friday night and then taking (the tents) down at the end of the weekend, he said. McGarry said he had personally watched winds blow these tents dangerously down the beach, once hitting a little girl. The public needs education on the issue, and also laws warning use of fireworks by amateurs, which he said was another problem on the beach during the Fourth of July period. When you combine alcohol, little kids and fireworks, you are asking for trouble, plus disturbing the peace, McGarry said. Commissioner Lee Holmes said the town used to red tag items on the beach, giving notice that they would be removed if not taken up within 24 hours. McGarry also said that had been an effective procedure. Mayor Adams said that enforcing the rule over the weekend would be a problem because the town does not have the personnel to do it.Zoning change aids efforts for proposed Madeira hotel By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH A Marriott hotel proposed for a 1.5-acre waterfront property on American Legion Drive moved closer to reality at the July 10 City Commission meeting. The commission approved a change in the zoning of the property from Commercial Retail/ Commercial General (C-3) to Planned Development (PD). The change allows the developer more flexibility in areas such as density, building height and setbacks and structural requirements. In return, the developer may be asked to commit to additional amenities and civic improvements that benefit the city. Madeira Beach has seen a loss of tourist facilities in recent years, and new hotel accommodations are seen as a much needed and desired addition. Planning consultant Dave Healy told the commission the project met the citys entire comprehensive plan and planned development regulations. Commissioner Terry Lister said he feared the zoning change would mean all the codes go out the window. Healy said the Planned Development designation does not set aside all code provisions, but provides developers the flexibility to do more than previously allowed. This is an important project, but a lot of details still need to be worked out, Healy said. Under the planned development regulations, the city gets benefits if the project is approved, he added. One change being considered is allowing a 90unit hotel to be built, rather than the 40-unit maximum permitted under the existing zoning. Residents Sara Massey and Nancy Gorski were concerned about increased traffic in the area due to the hotel. During the season, the roads are already quite packed, said Gorski. Commenting on the proposed new hotel, developer Housh Ghovaee of Northside Engineering said, We are extremely pleased to bring such a wonderful high profile project to the town. The prospective co-owner of the hotel, Steve Page of BCTM Group in Indian Shores, described the facility as having 90 rooms, a restaurant/bistro, meeting room, outside swimming pool, spa, a captains club consisting of bathrooms, showers, gathering space and lockers for boaters, and 26 boat slips. Shaner Hotels of State College, Pa., would manage it.

According to a police report, officers were searching for Kimberlee K. Lewen, after she failed to return the night before to a room at the Tahitian Inn, 11275 Gulf Blvd., which she shared with her boyfriend. Officers spotted Lewen walking on the sidewalk in front of the Tahitian about 7:40 a.m. Lewen told officers she was drinking rum the night before, got intoxicated and woke up in a hotel room at the Satellite Motel, 11205 Gulf Blvd. Lewen said the hotel room was unlocked and she thought it was the same room she had checked into with her boyfriend. Officers took Lewen to her room at the Tahitian Inn and reassured her boyfriend she was OK. A routine check turned up the outstanding warrant on Lewen. She was taken to Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $123. Lewen was released later in the day.Pair arrested in pot growing operationLARGO Police seized 121 marijuana plants, three rifles and four handguns July 3 and made two arrests stemming from an investigation of an indoor marijuana growing operation in the past two months. Intelligence indicated that the suspects were heavily armed with rifles and handguns and growing marijuana in the northwest section of Largo. On July 3, at 6:30 a.m., police served a search warrant at 911 16th Ave. NW. Besides the arms and marijuana plants being seized, two suspects were arrested. Jose Dickerson, 33, of Largo was charged with one count of cultivation of cannabis, one count of lease to manufacture a controlled substance and one count of possession of paraphernalia. He was taken to Pinellas County Jail under $55,150 bond. Jeffrey Fowler, 34, of Largo was charged with one count of cultivation of cannabis and one count of possession of paraphernalia. He was taken to the county jail under $5,150 bond.Palm Harbor drowning appears accidentalPALM HARBOR A Palm Harbor woman was pronounced dead July 13 after her husband found her floating face down in their pool. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Barbara Reid, 83, woke up about 8 a.m., did a load of laundry, then told her husband, Joseph Reid, 83, that she was going for a swim. He found her floating in the pool about 9 a.m. He pulled her out of the water and called 911. Deputies responded just after 10:30 a.m. East Lake Fire Department also responded and pronounced Mrs. Reid dead at the scene. Deputies say the drowning appears to be accidental, perhaps health related. The Medical Examiners Office will determine the cause and manner of death.Beware of summer scamsCLEARWATER Clearwater Police warn the public about scam artists in the summer months. Scammers draw victims into a conversation about the work that needs to be done on their home and offers a bargain home repair, police said. These are some tips to be aware of: The repairperson drives an unmarked truck or van with an out-of-state license. Only rarely will legitimate home improvement companies solicit door-to-door. They usually distribute fliers or make phone calls because its more cost-effective for them. The worker has no business identification, local address or telephone number. Always request identification so you can call the company for verification. You are offered a special price if you sign that day. Honest home contractors dont pressure customers to sign a contract or order immediately. Beware of excuses such as We just finished a job around the corner and had extra materials that we could offer you at a discounted price. Professional companies do not operate in that manner.

Before the decision, County Attorney Jim Bennett informed the commission that three citizens had filed a lawsuit June 26 against the supervisor of elections and Commissioners Susan Latvala, John Morroni, Ken Welch and Karen Seel, individually and in their official capacity. The suit, filed by Maria Scruggs, who is running against Welch in the Aug. 14 primary, Beverly Billiris and H. Patrick Wheeler, asks the court for a declaratory judgment to reinstate charter term limits for county commissioners as approved by referendum in 1996. At the time, the board consisted for five commissioners elected from countywide districts. The term limit amendment was challenged in the courts and declared unconstitutional Sept. 8, 2003. Some residents believe that a May 10 Supreme Court decision on charter-based term limits can be applied retroactively, meaning the commissioners named in the suit are no longer eligible to serve. The county attorneys office believes that the new rules established under the May Supreme Court ruling would be applied going forward from the date of the decision, not retroactively. The new ruling would allow commissioners to propose an amendment to the charter to allow term limits, which citizens could vote on by referendum. The commissioners were making plans to place the matter on the Nov. 6 ballot However, due to the lawsuit, which was filed the same day commissioners directed the attorneys office to begin work on ballot language and ordinance amending the charter to allow term limits, Bennett advised caution in proceeding. In another letter to commissioners, Bennett said the simultaneous introduction of a question on the 2012 general election ballot proposing term limits during the pendency of any legal challenge attempting to reinstate term limits approved in 1996 could create significant levels of confusion for the electorate, could create the potential for conflicting results and inconsistent term limit provisions and could increase the potential for additional litigation to resolve these issues. He presented three options to the board. The first, which was approved, was to take no action. The second was to proceed with advertisement of a proposed ordinance, which would have taken effect Jan. 2, 2013, to put a term limit referendum on the November 2014 election ballot. The third would have approved advertising of an ordinance to schedule a term limits referendum on Nov. 6 of the current year.Defense of county officialsBennett told commissioners that his office could find no conflict of interest that would prohibit county attorneys from representing everyone named in the suit. He said representation by the countys attorneys did not prevent the use outside counsel. Although the suit is against the commissioners in their individual capacity, at this stage in the litigation there are no allegations in the complaint of individual action or wrongdoing on the part of the named commissioners, Bennett wrote in a letter dated July 10. Bennett also pointed out benefits and risks of mutual representation. Benefits include lower cost and a more timely resolution. Risks include a possibility of a direct, adverse conflict, which would require the county attorneys office to withdraw its representation.DiscussionCommissioner Norm Roche requested that decisions about the lawsuit and referendum be tabled until after a closed-door meeting with the countys attorneys. Bennett said the suit had been served July 9 and that the defendants had 120 days to respond. He said a closed-door meeting could be scheduled to talk about the cost of the suit and strategy. He cautioned that no other topics could be discussed. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she didnt object to a close-door session. Seel agreed, as long as the parameters of the discussion were understood. Bostock said, regardless, a closed-door discussion would have no bearing on the July 10 agenda items. We need to stop, let the lawsuit proceed and take direction from that, she said.Briey Largo High School car, truck show plannedLARGO Tri City Cruisers in conjunction with Largo High School presents the first Largo High School Car and Truck Show, located at 401 Missouri Ave. in Largo, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15.

Excerpts from Schnurs lecture on efforts to build a stadium and bring Major League baseball team to the area follow:The areas attempts to secure a major league franchise exemplified the regional rift between Hillsborough County and Pinellas County in the 1980s, an important transitional period for the county. Although St. Petersburg civic leader and former St. Petersburg Times publisher Jack Lake started to lay the groundwork for an MLB franchise by the 1970s, the struggles between Tampa and St. Petersburg over the site of the stadium during the 1980s often worked to the detriment of the entire region. The actions of earlier Major League Baseball leaders, such as Commissioner Peter Ueberroth and National League President Bill White, made the area have to play extra innings to win the game. The biggest redevelopment project at the time, of course, was the plan to transform the Gas Plant area in St. Petersburg into the site of a multi-purpose stadium and this required countywide support. By a 3-2 vote in December 1983, Pinellas County commissioners agreed to support funding for a baseball or multipurpose sports stadium in St. Petersburg. Support was strong in St. Petersburg, though many hotels and establishments in north county questioned the value of using dollars from tourists to fund the complex that became Tropicana Field. Early funding and loan notes were drawn up and executed before the end of the year. With the defeat of Gabe Cazares in his re-election bid in November 1984, an anti-stadium majority held control of the county commission and in mid-November 1984, the new commission voted against supporting the stadium initiative. St. Petersburg responded by suing the commission to assure that it would honor the original agreement, a case that the city prevailed in during 1985. By this time, the Twins had courted with Tampa. In the mid-1980s, the Texas Rangers became a possible team for relocation as well. Things really became interesting in the mid-1980s. In July 1986, Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth informed St. Petersburgs Mayor Edward Cole via telegraph that the city is not among the top candidates for a franchise. A week later, on July 23, a public hearing at the Bayfront Center attracted approximately 2,000 people to discuss the stadium, with supporters in the majority. On July 24, the members of St. Petersburgs city council approved a measure to build the stadium by a 6-3 vote. Build it and they will come, was the thought at the time. A well-attended groundbreaking took place at the future site of the stadium, on Nov. 22, 1986, with 9,000 in attendance. By that time, the Chicago White Sox seemed to be the perfect suitor. The White Sox played in old Comisky Park, a venue that had shown its age since opening in the summer of 1910. On Dec. 5, this chapter of the baseball drama seemed to end, as the ownership of the Chicago White Sox said that the team would not move to St. Petersburg. After the Illinois Legislature proposed a new plan to finance a replacement stadium, leaders in St. Petersburg felt their hopes were dashed. However, uncertainties of this plan for a $120 million stadium allowed residents of the Tampa Bay area to believe that the Florida White Sox might be a reality. The drama resumed on and off for another year and a half with the Sox eventually deciding to stay up. Construction on the Florida Suncoast Dome began on Jan. 5, 1987. The original stadium design, slated to cost about $85 million, allowed forBuild it and they will comePlenty of hits and misses, but Pinellas finally gets pro baseball flexibility and multipurpose events. The actual name was selected from over 19,900 entries and was announced on May 1. By mid-July, pockets of contamination were detected in some areas of the former Gas Plant. Remediation efforts delayed construction and added to the cost of preparing the site. The Florida Suncoast Dome opened with a big celebration in February 1990. Later known as the Thunderdome and Tropicana Field, the original stadium configuration remained partially incomplete to allow for multipurpose activities. Costs to date were $110 million. In June 1990, Major League Baseball announced a timetable for expansion that would allow for the addition of two teams in the National League with an announcement scheduled for June 1991 Finally, on March 9, 1995, new expansion franchises were awarded to a Tampa Bay group. The Devil Rays played their first game on March 31, 1998 against the Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field before a crowd of 45,369.

The making of PinellasCentennial storiesEditors note: Ernest William Billy Bie submitted this description of the Bie familys life in the boathouse, a historic home in Indian Rock Beach. It was built in 1911 or 1912 on 24 p ilings and turned into a home for Bies mother and six children. Bies father, Norman Bie, and his mother, Rita Monrose Bie, were born in 1895 and 1894 respectively.The boathouse was built about 1911 on property owned by Horace H. Hamlin, who owned numerous other properties in the county. Harry Ulmer, a citrus grove entrepreneur who kept his boat Miss Largo in one of its three boat wells, built it. During the early 1930s, local mullet fishermen Bill Ransom and Ross Johns lived in it. In 1938 my father, Norman A. Bie, a Realtor in Tampa since 1918, bought the boathouse from Hamlin. He proceeded to turn it into a home for his wife Rita and six children, ages 3 to 15, plus his real estate office. When we moved in, the first floor was two open boat wells with catwalks, and the roadside of the center boat well had been floored to use as a garage. The second floor had one large room on the west side with an open porch on the east side overlooking the bay. Mother cleverly divided the large room into fourths by nailing up strings and hanging bed sheets over them, which created a kitchen and three bedrooms, one for my three sisters, one for us three boys, and one for my parents. In the kitchen we had an icebox, which was replenished several times a week by an ice truck that came to our house, and the stove was a three-burner metal kerosene stove. Mother used a washboard and bucket to do our laundry. Remember, 1938 was one of the Great Depression years and times were not easy. Within three years, Dad had the boat wells completely floored to make three rooms and a bath. The center was his real estate office. Upstairs, partitions were built forming living and dining rooms, kitchen, two bedrooms and bath. The porch was fully screened. Soon a third floor dormitory and bath were added and a small building next to the boathouse for mothers laundry room. With youngsters sleeping on the third floor, Dad added a ladder on the bay side from the top floor down to the first as a fire escape. It has never been used for that purpose, but we kids and friends, children and grandchildren have certainly had fun jumping off the ladder into the bay at high tide. The boathouse was a wonderful place to grow up. Over the years we had bicycles, a kayak, canoe, 25horsepower motorboat and water skis. We had a library full of books, cards and games, ping-pong table, piano, ukulele, harmonica and guitar. We caught fish with hook-and-line, rods, nets and homemade spear gun. Bay scallops were plentiful as were blue crabs in the Gulf. In 1946 Dad put a stable on the lot across Gulf Boulevard from the boathouse and two horses, Trippi and Danny that we rode on the beach. They loved swimming in the Gulf! High tides have brought water into the first floor maybe 15 times through the years, but no storm has so much as removed a shingle. Dad lived in the boathouse until he died in 1974. Mother lived there until she was 98 years old. The boathouse continues to be home base for our Bie family, now and into the future.

Viewpoints 11A Beacon, July 19, 2012Another one bites the dust. A Miami federal judge has struck down the new law prohibiting Florida doctors from discussing gun ownership with their patients. The ruling extends the legal losing streak of Gov. Rick Scott and right-wing lawmakers, who have set a pathetic record for unconstitutional bills. Written by the National Rifle Association, the so-called Firearm Owners Privacy Act would have prevented concerned physicians from asking patients about guns kept in their houses. Its a reasonable query in domestic situations in which children might be at risk. But the GOP-controlled Legislature wants doctors to shut up about guns and stick to lecturing women about their abortion decisions. So much for privacy. By necessity, doctors ask lots of personal questions. Are you using any illegal drugs? How much alcohol do you drink in a week? Do you smoke cigarettes? Do you suffer from depression? Weve all filled out the checklists while sitting in the waiting room. And, on the examination table, weve all heard doctors and nurses ask things we wouldnt post on Facebook. Say, have you noticed if your urine is changing color? Uh, no. Most of us have never been asked by our health-care providers whether we have a gun, or where on the premises we keep it. However, most of us dont have bullet scars, needle tracks or booze on our breath when showing up for a medical appointment. Some people do, and too often they have kids. Doctors who ask questions are usually just doctors who care, and the best doctors have more questions than others. The ban on asking about gun habits originated after an Ocala couple reportedly claimed their physician wouldnt treat them anymore because they refused to talk about it. Cue the NRA, which had no trouble finding a stooge in the Legislature to sponsor a bill that effectively prohibited physicians from raising the subject. Republican supporters claimed that merely by inquiring about firearms in the house, doctors are infringing on a patients Second Amendment rights. The argument is embarrassingly lame. Suggesting that someone put a trigger lock on their handgun is not quite the same as confiscating it. Extending the Legislatures knothead logic, a doctor who promotes the safe use of condoms is violating your constitutional right to accidentally impregnate whomever you want. The gun law was doomed in the courts from the day the NRA hacks delivered it. Still, it passed last year and was proudly signed by Scott, generating a swift legal challenge from the Florida Pediatric Society, the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and other groups. In the media, the battle became known as Docs vs. Glocks, and on June 29 the docs won. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke made permanent an order blocking the law, saying it violated the free-speech rights of physicians. She said the wording of the legislation was vague and offered no guidelines for health-care practitioners. For instance, the statute allowed doctors to ask about firearms only if they believed in good faith that the information was relevant to a patients care and safety. Yet no specific standards were laid out in the law. The judge said it had a chilling effect on medical providers who feared heavy fines or even losing their licenses if they spoke to families about gun safety a rather serious health issue in Florida, judging by the number of emergency room admissions. Increasingly, doctors around the country are putting firearm ownership on their checklists of questions for patients. Thats because, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, one out of every 25 children delivered to pediatric trauma centers has a gunshot wound. Its likely that Florida will appeal Judge Cookes decision and try to reinstate the doctor-muzzling law. The governor thinks its a dandy piece of legislation, and totally constitutional. His hapless scorecard in that area speaks for itself. Tom Julin, a prominent First Amendment lawyer involved in challenging the statute, recently wrote in the South Florida Sun Sentinel: The fact of the matter is the NRA asked the Legislature to pass this law to censor doctors who might advocate gun control the NRA opposes. Doctors who see children bearing bullet holes on a regular basis can be very powerful advocates. To do their jobs right, doctors are obligated to ask about anything that might affect the health of you and your family. You certainly cant be forced to answer those questions, just as your doctor cant be forced to keep you as a patient. Take your funny-colored pee and move on.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. The group known as Christians in Recovery has published Signs of a Spiritual Awakening. As I read the signs, I realized that although these ideas may have applications for most people, theyre not of much use for persons embroiled in politics, either as office-holders or campaign workers. Here are the spiritual signs, and my responses to them. 1. AN INCREASED TENDENCY TO LET THINGS HAPPEN RATHER THAN MAKE THEM HAPPEN. Such a laissez-faire attitude spells suicide to a politician and his/her supporters. Politics requires people to take any sort of action that will defeat the enemy. Up to and including assassination attempts, or starting a rumor that the opposing candidate was born in Qatar as a product of his mothers one-night stand with a camel jockey. 2. FREQUENT ATTACKS OF SMILING. Political smiles are allowed only during campaign appearances, or when the latest poll shows your side is gaining. Smiling is a sign of satisfaction, and satisfied campaigners usually lose. 3. FEELINGS OF BEING CONNECTED WITH OTHERS AND NATURE. The best example of this would take place as a candidate shakes hands with a contributor who has just forked over a $100,000 campaign contribution in a rose garden filled with fawns and chipmunks. 4. FREQUENT OVERWHELMING EPISODES OF APPRECIATION. Again, such moments usually are tied to large contributions, or to public endorsements of a candidate by supporters such as Oprah Winfrey, the Pope or God. 5. A TENDENCY TO THINK AND ACT SPONTANEOUSLY RATHER THAN FROM FEARS BASED ON PAST EXPERIENCE. Such actions by a politician spell certain doom. Campaign trails are littered with the bodies of candidates who blurted the truth or acted as his/her gut feelings dictated at that moment. Take away the teleprompter from Barack Obama, the rehearsed answers from Mitt Romney, and the 3 x 5 cards from Ronald Reagan, and what have you got? Chaos. Anarchy. Do you think JFK announced, Ich bin eine Berliner! just as the phrase crossed his mind at the podium? Not bloody likely. 6. AN UNMISTAKABLE ABILITY TO ENJOY EACH MOMENT. Change each to an occasional and youll be closer to the realities of political campaigning. Today, the pressures coming to bear on candidates and their staffs are unremitting. In the not-so-distant past, campaigners could put in a grueling 18-hour day and then have a beer and relax while waiting for the morning papers to arrive. No more. Today, the Internet and other electronic news media simply do not rest. If Mitt Romney says, Bubbaloo! at 10 a.m., the Obama people must respond with an antibubbaloo statement by 11. If theyre too slow, the media will come out at noon with Obama campaign headquarters seem at a loss to reply to Gov. Romneys bubbaloo announcement. Theres not much room for enjoyable moments in such a lifestyle. 7. A LOSS OF ABILITY TO WORRY. Ha! 8. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN CONFLICT. Ha! 9. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN INTERPRETING THE ACTIONS OF OTHERS. Much of politics is necessarily devoted to interpreting the actions of your opponents, followed by issuing public statements that misinterpret and misconstrue those actions, or cast a negative spotlight on them. 10. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN JUDGING OTHERS. No way, Jose. If you cant be a fairly accurate judge of the characters and motivations of the political players (both friendly and enemy) youd better find yourself another game. 11. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN JUDGING SELF. This trait in a politician need not be harmful provided that he/she has already accurately analyzed his strong and weak points. He can then proceed to hide his defects and vulnerabilities from the voting public so that voters will be conned into judging him as being trustworthy, intelligent, strong, etc. 12. GAINING THE ABILITY TO LOVE WITHOUT EXPECTING ANYTHING IN RETURN. In politics and in many other areas of life, the term love is bandied about so much that its almost meaningless. Any candidate who tells a crowd of 500 or 50,000 persons I love you! should not be believed. You cant love anyone you dont know pretty well, and no candidate can get up close and personal with all those voters out there. A typical candidate doesnt exude or expect love. Or respect. Or worship. All he wants is your vote (along with a campaign contribution, if possible). **** Does all of the above mean that politics completely rules out genuine idealism, love of country and a desire to serve the public? Not in the least. It simply rules out the sort of spiritual awakening that can lift a person above the fray and purify his soul. Politics is a battleground, messy, impure, and about as spiritual as a pro football game. But it can still be great fun.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net. No room for spiritual awakeningsI have a love-hate relationship with bridges. The panoramic view of meandering rivers and restless seas from the tops of bridges makes memories. Being stuck on a bridge with a full bladder makes nightmares. My boss told me that he recently was held up on the bridge at Johns Pass twice on the same trip to and from his destination. I can top that. Before the bridge was rebuilt, I was also held up on it twice on the same trip but both times on the way back. Must have taken me 35 minutes to get to the Madeira side. There were more mariners passing through the spans that February afternoon than there were boats evacuating Dunkirk in World War II. Trust me on this. I had plenty of time to count them. Though I think that our transportation planners sometimes come up with a BAD idea Build Another Drawbridge I recognize that for some places there are few alternatives, such as at Johns Pass. And I prefer a drawbridge over a ferry any day. You dont want to be on a ferry in Lake Superior in the winter, which explains why the Aerial Lift Bridge was built in Duluth, Minn. It was one of the first bridges Ive ever crossed as a boy growing up in northern Wisconsin and remains one of my favorites. The bridge was built in 1905 and upgraded in 1929 to its current lifting design meaning straight up as it operates today. Its probably Duluths most famous and beloved piece of architecture, even though it looks as if were built from an Erector Set. The last time I crossed that bridge was when I was on vacation in 2004, just for the heck of it. The bridge takes you from the mainland in Duluth to Minnesota Point, a seven-mile narrow sand spit that leads to nowhere. The next time I make a decision to take the Aerial Lift Bridge just for the heck of it, Ill forgo having two Leinenkugel beers at nearby Grandmas restaurant. As you are waiting for the lift to come down, its kind of hard to enjoy the bridges distinct operating mechanisms when the most prevalent thought running through your head is wheres the nearest bathroom. Have a favorite name of a bridge? Mine is the Bridge of Gods, a span in the magnificent Columbia River Gorge between Oregon and Washington.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Drivers SeatBob Driver Florida loses a silly legal battleFireworks revelers show lack of conscience Editor: Thank you for your timely article (Heart of the Matter) in the July 12th edition of the Bee. Todays increasing disregard for the inherent responsibilities of all citizens to care for our natural resources is appalling. As Gulf side residents of Indian Rocks Beach, our neighbors and we have seen increasing behavior mentioned in Southmayds writing. We have watched beach goers throw whole cases of beer bottles into the sea oats on occasions when the sheriffs deputies come by on patrol. The Independence Day lack of conscience shown by fireworks revelers was, indeed, disgraceful. As noted in the article, the shore erosion had a serious effect on the evening. This was an inconvenience that sensible people expect to live with. Ms. Southmayd rightly pointed out that all parties involved in the display should have returned, at least the next morning, to clean up the mess. Despite the overflowing trash baskets, many did pile the trash next to the containers. Many did not. When we, and other residents, combed the beach the next day, the volume of junk was unbelievable. City workers continue to do an amazing job in caring for our beautiful beach. I saw a terrible train wreck years ago. The mess left on the morning of the 5th was avid reminder. IRB staff should not be expected to do train wrecks. A suggestion is that, perhaps, civic organizations might sponsor (with the city of IRB) annual celebration events to help control the chaotic situation. As we all know, groups such as IRB Action 2000, IRB Home Owners, Rotary Club, Beach Art Center and others continue to sponsor excellent family events throughout the year. Most people take for granted the huge amount of volunteer efforts that go into the preparation and staging of these events. One is familiar with the sage remark that, if you want something done, ask a busy person. Perhaps, a joint meeting to include representatives of these organizations and the city may be scheduled to consider possibilities. Dealing with the three-mile long beach area for holidays like New Years Eve and the 4th is a challenge. I believe that, with some old-fashioned brainstorming, something will be done. Ralph E.

Carl Hiaasen Tom Germond story here of how the bridge got its name, but you can find out more about it at www.portofcascadelocks.org/bridge. Or just go there, enjoy the scenery and surroundings and learn about Sam Hill, a famous innovator in the Pacific Northwest. Closer to home, I enjoy the view of brawny Jacksonville from the bridge on I-95 over the St. Johns River. I didnt enjoy the view decades ago when you had to pay a toll on the bridge to cross the river. And what the Sam Hill is up with the proposal to convert the Howard Frankland Bridge into a toll bridge? (You knew Id work Sam Hill in somehow). Not sure whos the brainless bureaucrat that decided that would be a good idea, but he probably runs with the same crowd that decided we need a state university in Lakeland. The Howard Frankland is my least favorite bridge. Im never sure on how much time to allot for a trip to Tampa International Airport because of the traffic frenzy, which is akin to the running of the wildebeasts across the Maui River. Might be easier to leave your car at St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport and book a flight to Tampa International. I pray to Manito I never have to do that.The Aerial LIft Bridge in Duluth, Minn., in May 1996.

Each online assessment takes about seven minutes or less to complete, and includes factors such as overall health, family history and lifestyle choices. After submitting information, participants receive personalized, confidential reports that explain risks and provide recommendations for lifestyle changes, placing more focus on prevention, early detection and wellness. Tampa Bay area resident, Joseph Guido, recently completed one of the assessments. I went online to take the heart risk assessment because I previously suffered from two silent heart attacks and became interested in learning more about how to take care of my heart, said Guido in a press release. The assessment said that I was atrisk because of several lifestyle choices. I learned that I needed to make some changes in my diet, exercise more and reduce my stress level. The health risk assessment made me realize I needed to make changes in my life. Ultimately, we can reduce the effects of disease through early detection and prevention, said Dr. Bruce Flareau, president BayCare Physician Partners. The assessment is a simple tool that evaluates a persons risk of developing a disease and more importantly how to reduce those risks. After answering some basic questions, the test will give you a results page providing health recommendations, Flareau said. For most people, the types of things that are suggested are simple lifestyle changes, adjustments in diet or developing a better exercise routine. If needed, you can be directed to a physician for further follow up. Today, Guido has improved his health by applying the assessment recommendations to his daily routine. I have lost weight, walk more and eat better, Guido said. I have also tried to reduce the level of stress in my life. I would advise anyone else who has concerns about health issues to take any of the health risk assessments. I highly recommend it. BayCare Health System offers a total of 13 assessments including: Cancer Breast Cancer Colon Cancer Lung Cancer Prostate Diabetes Heart Joint Lung Sleep Stroke Spine Vascular Weight Individuals interested in managing their health risks can visit YourHealthRisk.org. Participants also can opt in to receive free education materials via email.

One of the best musicals of the 20th century, Rodgers and Hammersteins Carousel features favorite songs such as June is Bustin Out All Over, Youll Never Walk Alone and If I Loved You. Carousel is a remarkable journey through love, honor and redemption. In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there. Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her fathers reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. The production is directed by Jamie Bierchen and features Marissa Jo Kraus, Adam Willard, Joell Ramsdell, Brianna Lynn Filippelli, and Madison Kosloski.

Thats a lot of interwoven story threads for kids to assimilate. In most cases, the background stories dont really do anything to propel the main plot. In the case of the pirates, the script exploits needless malevolence instead of focusing on the heroes struggle with the uncontrollable forces of nature. Movies dont always need a villain they just need conflict. The films core characters remain as likeable as they have always been, but their personalities have become static: Manny is the doting father figure, Sid the chatty-but-sweet buffoon and Diego the cynical but sympathetic tamed savage. Other returning characters have similar appeal, but there is no risk-taking here in terms of character development. And as jumbled as it is, the films script doesnt take chances either. No surprises, no plot twists just a predictable, albeit long-winded, journey toward a conventional conclusion. Of course, kids wont notice most of these imperfections. They will watch Ice Age: Continental Drift gleefully, a perfect summertime escape. Diego (Denis Leary), left, finds a potential love interest in Shira (Jennifer Lopez) in Ice Age: Continental Drift.

There is too much story crammed into this family-friendly film populated by too many characters and too many clichs from previous franchise installments. There is far too little charisma and variation on the original theme. Of course, this is from an adults perspective and all that could be forgiven if the film appealed to its target audience. Even children sense a problem, though: This franchise is getting as old as the fossilized remains of the various extinct beasts it depicts. Prior to the new film, the most recent outing 2009s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs suffered from the same failing: then, like now, the filmmakers did not offer any new thematic material. However, that film did offer a solid storyline as well as an engaging new character in the form of Buckminster (voiced by Simon Pegg), a swashbuckling oneeyed weasel. Ice Age: Continental Drift isnt without new characters. In fact, the film introduces so many new characters its difficult to keep track of them all. Few seem particularly necessary and only one is fully developed: cantankerous Granny, (voiced by Wanda Sykes) proves to be the silver lining in an otherwise drab, gray cloud. The underpinning of Ice Age: Continental Drift isnt even all that solid. Scrat the wacky saber-toothed squirrel whose obsession with collecting acorns has been a slapstick component of the franchise from the beginning accidentally triggers a continental cataclysm. As shifting tectonic plates reshape the landscape, mammoth Manny (Ray Romano), sabre-toothed tiger Diego (Denis Leary) and sloth Sid (John Leguizamo) are separated from their friends and family when they are swept out to sea on an iceberg. They must fight to make their way back home in time to save their loved ones. If that doesnt seem far-fetched, throw in ragtag band of miscreant pirates led by Captain Gutt (Peter Dinklage), an orangutan. Once again, in order to spark a new storyline, the writers had to invent a situation in which the main characters are separated. While showcasing the significance of the extended family concept is important to the franchise, it seems awfully forced this time around. In addition to the pirate set-up, subplots include a bit on teenage rebelliousness featuring Peaches (Keke Palmer), the daughter of Manny and Ellie (Queen Latifah); Sid and Grannys relationship; and a love inReel TimeLee Clark Zumpe

Aguilar and his crew will perform Friday and Saturday, July 20-21, at the Original Boardwalk Grill and Sports Bar, 126 Island Way, in the Island Estates Plaza on Clearwater Beach. In addition to Aguilar, the show will feature Joe Lala, percussionist for Crosby, Stills and Nash; Kevin Hurley, guitarist for Santana; and Charlie DeChant, saxophonist for Hall and Oates. The music will start sometime after 9 p.m. and there is no cover charge. The event is the result of a chance meeting a few years ago. I was down recording a record with Marty Balin, Aguilar said in a phone interview. I went into a bar across from where I was staying on Island Estates and met this guy. The two struck up a conversation, discussing music as well the Tampa Bay area. A year and a half later, I came back and he owns the bar. By the time Aguilar had returned, the Original Boardwalk Grill and Sports Bar had been completely renovated. The establishment features Coney Island Boardwalk wood, vibrant colors, and photos of boardwalks across the country, according to its website. I said to him, you should let me bring in my band. Aguilar said. He said, lets go. A few phone calls later, Aguilar had pieced together a group of legendary rock industry musicians. I got all these world class players together, Aguilar said. Well rock the beaches. And theres a possibility that this kind of show may become a recurring event at the venue. I want it to be, Aguilar said. Were trying to keep it going.Aguilar and friendsBest known for his work with Jefferson Starship, Slick Aguilar has worked with a wide range of notable musicians. Through much of the 1970s, he was an in-house guitar player for TK Studios in North Miami. During that period, he recorded with KC and the Sunshine Band, Bobby Caldwell, Latimore, George and Gwenn McRae, Clarence Reid, Timmy Thomas and Betty Wright. After relocating to the West Coast, Aguilar joined Buddy Miles band. In 1982, he toured with David Crosby. A few years later, Marty Balin invited him to join his band, which in turn led to Aguilar taking on the role of lead guitarist in the KBC Band, which also featured former Jefferson Airplane members Paul Kantner and Jack Casady. The KBC Bands self-titled debut included the hit America. The KBC Band broke up after touring from 198587. In 1992, Kantner, Aguilar, Casady, Tim Gorman, Papa John Creach, Prairie Prince and Darby Gould established the next generation of Jefferson Starship. The lineup has changed over the years, but the core members of this incarnation of Jefferson Starship continues to tour and record. The bands most recent release, Jeffersons Tree of Liberty, came out in 2008. Joe Lala grew up in Ybor City. Though he always intended to be a musician, he got a barbers license in case things didnt work out. In 1966, straight out of high school, Lala had a hand in the formation of Blues Image. After playing Tampa nightclubs for a few years, the band recorded their million-selling hit Ride Captain Ride in 1970. Needless to say, Lala hasnt cut anyones hair since then. After leaving Blues Image, Lala worked with a number of other artists and groups including Stephen Stills Manassas, The Eagles, The Bee Gees, Jackson Browne, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Barbara Streisand, John Cougar Mellencamp, Eric Clapton, Dr. John and Herbie Hancock. Over the years, Lala has accumulated 32 Gold records, and 28 Platinum records during his music career. He played on the movie soundtracks of Saturday Night Fever, Staying Alive, D.C. Cab, Streets of Fire. All The Right Moves, Breathless, Defiance, The Lonely Guy, and Airplane. While carpal tunnel syndrome has curtailed his musical endeavors, Lala still plays on occasion. Following the diagnosis, he embarked on a new career path as an actor and voiceover specialist. His film and television credits include appearances in Sugar Hill, On Deadly Ground, Havana, Miami Vice, General Hospital, Melrose Place, and Whos The Boss? Ali. Lala resides in the Tampa Bay area. Kevin Hurley was born in Miami, grew up in California and returned to South Florida in his teens. While still in Palo Alto, near San Francisco, he took his first music lessons at age 11. His instructor was the soon-to-be-famous Jerry Garcia, folk and bluegrass musician and member of the Grateful Dead. Hurley started playing with a country and bluegrass outfit called Spooner Summit featuring Oz Bach. During his time with this band, Hurley honed his craft on acoustic guitar. He next performed with Nitehawk, playing all the well-known dives in Miami and the Florida Keys according to his biography. Not long after this, Hurley met Aguilar. The fast friends formed the band Tattoo, performing at hot spots in Miami and Key Biscayne. A second incarnation paired the two: The Slick Hurley Band recorded the CD Brothers by Other Mothers, a fusion of Southern rock and R&B. More recently, Hurley formed his own band, The Conch-A-Delics. Cuts from their CD Palm Tree Reality have received radio airplay in the Miami area and on Jimmy Buffetts Margaritaville Internet radio station. Charlie DeChant plays saxophone and keyboards for Hall & Oates.

Pictures and Legendary Pictures The Dark Knight Rises is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolans Dark Knight trilogy. It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters. BeatsGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Paz de la Huerta, Lee Pace, Justin Kirk, Thomas Sadoski, Jennifer Tilly, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Jason Day, Vahina Giocante, Ben Levin and Condola Rashad Director: Alexis Lloyd Rated: R Written, produced and directed by Alexis Lloyd, the film is a lighthearted exploration of seduction, spontaneity and self-discovery thats as sultry and vibrant as the city it is set in. When the doe-eyed Julie (Condola Rashad) seeks out worldly anthropologist Adam (Justin Kirk) in a determined effort to lose her virginity, the stage is set for a delightful dive into a world of sensual singlehood in New York City. The encounter triggers a chain reaction that connects 10 city-dwellers over a period of three sweltering days. After deflowering Julie, an out-of-sorts Adam looks up seductive psychic Erika (Jennifer Tilly), who in turn frolics with bike messenger Diego (Jason Day), who later declares his love for the scarred beauty Laura (Paz de la Huerta), who subsequently tries to seduce her chiropractor Matt (Lee Pace). The shifting locations, professions and emotions paint a multifaceted picture of passionate and often unrequited love in the city. Matts lust for switchboard operator Kim (Vahina Giocante) is complicated by a lesbian fling, which also indirectly complicates Kims interest in speechwriter Julian (Thomas Sadoski), who in turn is enthralled by Alice (Ingeborga Dapkunaite), a call girl on the verge of a career change. Taking on one last job, Alice pays off a debt by dutifully seducing the virgin Sean (Ben Levin), who it turns out is the best friend of Julie the virgin whose first encounter opens the film. The tryst brings the round of randomseeming encounters full-circle as Sean and Julie debate the risks and rewards of introducing sex into their platonic relationship. Will they or wont they? Its just another thrum of the citys heartbeat of love.Hara-Kiri: Death of a SamuraiGenre: Drama Cast: Ebizo Ichikawa, Eita, Hikari Mitsushima, Naoto Takenaka, Munetaka Aoki, Takashi Sasano, Baijaku Nakamura and Koji Yakusho Director: Takashi Miike Not rated From visionary auteur Takashi Miike comes the story of a mysterious samurai who arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming. With stunning cinematography and gripping performances, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is a thrilling exploration of revenge, honor and individuality in the face of oppressive power.The Queen of VersaillesGenre: Documentary Cast: Jackie Siegel and David Siegel Director: Lauren Greenfield Rated: PG The Queen of Versailles is a character-driven documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis. With epic proportions of Shakespearean tragedy, the film follows two unique characters, whose rags-to-riches success stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream. The film begins with the family triumphantly constructing the biggest house in America, a 90,000-square-foot palace. Over the next two years, their sprawling empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis. Major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the crosscultural household of family members and domestic staff.

Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there. Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her fathers reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. The production is directed by Jamie Bierchen and features Marissa Jo Kraus, Adam Willard, Joell Ramsdell, Brianna Lynn Filippelli, and Madison Kosloski.Pinellas Park Movies in the Park Saturday, July 28, dusk, at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

The exhibit explores how photography was used in the development and propagation of communism. It also raises larger questions surrounding the perception and interpretation of photographs, which are often viewed as strictly representing reality. Artists in the early days of Soviet rule redefined their role in society. No longer creators of paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the elite, many artists embraced photography as an art for the masses. They advanced the cause of the October Revolution of 1917 by experimenting with avant-garde processes and points of view. Photographers represented include Alexander Ustinov, Max Alpert, Emanuel Evzerikhin, and Georgi Zelma, among others. The photographs in this exhibition are selections from recent donations by Howard Schickler and Janice Tuckwood of more than 200 Soviet photographs. These images, the first of their kind to enter the collection, illuminate history and explore the manifold uses of photography. Museum hours are Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $17 for adults, $15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students 7 and older, including college students with current identification. Children 6 and younger and Museum members are admitted free. For information, call 896-2667 or visit www.fine-arts.org. Global + Local: Studio and Contemporary Glass on Floridas West Coast, through Oct. 14, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg.

Recent MFA acquisitions of major works by Therman Statom and Michael Glancy are high points, as well as objects by internationally renowned artists Harvey Littleton, Lino Tagliapietra, Dale Chihuly, Richard Ritter, William Morris, Sonja Blomdahl, Dante Marioni, Toots Zinsky and Yoichi Ohira. Exceptional works by area artists Duncan McClellan, Owen Pach, and Chuck Boux also enhance the exhibition. McClellans new studio/gallery in downtown St. Petersburg is attracting artists from around the globe. The Chihuly Collection and the Hot Shop at The Morean Arts Center and the Zen Glass Studio likewise reflect the citys emergence as a center for the display and creation of glass art. Museum hours are Monday through Wednesday and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $17 for adults, $15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students 7 and older, including college students with current identification.

Pollak will return to his comedy roots for one-nightonly in Tampa Bays intimate Treasure Island concert venue. Pollak started performing stand-up comedy at age 10 and was an accomplished touring professional by age 20. In 1988, shortly after he shot his first HBO stand-up special, he landed a role in Willow, directed by Ron Howard and produced by George Lucas. In 1989, he earned his first dramatic role in Barry Levinsons Avalon, but it was Pollaks role in Rob Reiners A Few Good Men opposite Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore that proved his ability to hold his own with Hollywood heavy weights. Pollak was named by Comedy Central as one of the Top 100 Comedians of All Time. He has released two live stand-up CDs A Little Off the Top and What Are the Chances, as well as a stand-up DVD, The Littlest Suspect.

New playground set for Honeymoon Island, interpretive center at Caladesi Island By TOM GERMONDDUNEDIN The Friends of the Island Parks are taking on big projects, including a playground that is expected to be completed in the next few months at Honeymoon Island and an interpretative center for Caladesi Island The $120,000 limitless playground will be built with funds raised by the Friends, a volunteer organization, Park Manager Peter Krulder said. The playground, which will be ADA accessible, will have climbing walls and typical swings. It will have two covered benches, one on each side of the playground, providing shade for people, such as the many grandparents who bring kids to the park. The Friends have been working on the playground plans for a couple of years. The committee visited many playgrounds in Pinellas County and interviewed parents, children and others, said Diane Hood, who is chairperson for the playground project, and sought ideas from other city recreation departments. We call it a limitless playground, she said. This would be geared for children ages 2 through 12 and provide them with an inclusive playing environment for children of all abilities. With grandparents down here and lots of retired people in the area, we want to make it easier for them to have access to the playground also. The current playground is more than 10 years old and was due to be replaced. Park staff was spending a lot of time repairing equipment, which was showing signs of corrosion and wear and tear. When I went to the Friends and told them I would like to see that as a project, they really embraced it and went whole hog. They figured if they were going to do this, they were going to put a first-class playground in this, Krulder said. The Love Fore Charity golf tournament held in March at the Countryside Country Club benefited Friends of the Island Parks; $45,000 was raised. The rest of the money for the project came from other fundraising events, such as the annual Island Earth Days at the park. The club is also seeking grants. We just are placing the order for the equipment this week, Krulder said. We are looking to have it done by the end of August or early September if everything goes well. Plans call for the $500,000 Caladesi Discovery Center to be built in the footprint of an old fire tower on Caladesi Island that was torn down in the 1980. It will be about 25 feet off the ground and be ADA accessible through an elevator. The timetable for the project is uncertain at this point. Through exhibits and other means, visitors to the center would learn about the history of the islands, habitat, and beach geology how the island has changed. I think it will be wonderful for people in the area to learn about the history of the barrier island and to just get a better appreciation of nature out on these islands, Hood said. Hood said as chairperson of the playground committee, her goal was to have the playground built before fund raising was launched for the interpretative center. Last year, Krulder said, volunteers provided 28,000 volunteer hours at Honeymoon Island, many of those hours were provided by Friends of the Island Parks through labor and events. The organization has more than 275 members. They are great. We couldnt get by without them, Krulder said.

VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenLawmakers have set pathetic record for unconstitutional bills, columnist says.. ... Page 11A. Local flag flap forces adjustments By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The city will soon be installing brackets on its fire department vehicles, which will allow the proper flying of the U.S. flag. The issue came to a head July 13 when the city received a complaint that a fire engine from Station 29, located at 113th Street and 70th Avenue, was going to a call with a flag flying incorrectly on a small pole out of a side window. Fire Chief George Bessler said the firefighters flying the flag had good intentions but it violated the U.S. Code for flying a United States flag. Its unfortunate, said Bessler. The majority of Americans dont understand the U.S. Code, which is borne out of the U.S. Constitution. According to Title 36, Chapter 10, Section 175, paragraph (b) of the U.S. Code, Bessler said, a flag can be flown on a vehicle only if it is attached to the chassis or on the right front fender. Bessler said he instituted a policy about eight months ago that banned incorrect flying of a U.S. flag from the rear of a fire engine. At the same time he requested proposals for flying a flag from firefighters that would be in compliance with the U.S. code. Bessler said he never received a proposal from the firefighters or any employee of the fire department. The new stainless steel brackets are being designed and forged by city workers.

Local prideSeminoles Cusmano set for first year as Bucs cheerleaderPhoto courtesy of TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSTricia Cusmano was recently named to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleading squad. She is a 2010 graduate of Seminole High School. By BRAD RICHARDSONSEMINOLE Tricia Cusmano of Seminole fulfilled a longtime dream recently when she was named one of the 34 talented women to join the Tampa Buccaneers cheerleading squad this season. This was her second tryout for the team. It was three rounds of auditions within a month long process and with each round came more and more cuts. After dancing in front of a judges panel and making it into the final round with just the two coaches making the final decision, she said it was great to know that the hard work and many years had finally paid off. I just jumped up and down screaming, said Cusmano. I was at home when I found out. My name was the last one posted online, so I had to go through every ones names to get to mine at the bottom. I cant really explain the moment other than it was very exciting and so surreal. For the 20-year-old Cusmano, cheerleading has been an ever-going part of her life. Although she participated in soccer and swimming in her youth, she felt most comfortable when she was holding a pair of pompoms, dancing and cheering on the home team. I just enjoy being in front of a crowd and Im just a very positive person, said Cusmano. I always have a smile on my face and I really enjoy expressing that in front of the fans. I just really like the sport of cheerleading. This is not her first time getting the experience of what its like to be a part of the Buccaneers organization. She first got what it was like at age 10 when her mom, Rhonda Cusmano, enrolled her in the Junior Buccaneer cheerleaders. She said the first time cheering next to them was an experience she would never forget. They were role models to me and I knew then and there, thats what I wanted to do, Tricia said. My coach now, Catherine Boyd, was one of the Bucs cheerleaders back then, and in one of the group pictures that was taken, Im right See CUSMANO, page 4ACouncil OKs minor development change By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Homeowners in a proposed 20-home subdivision east of Lake Seminole may end up a little closer to one another than originally planned. The City Council preliminarily approved a proposed development agreement amendment July 10 that would allow Frain Enterprises Inc. of Seminole and Outer Ring LLC of Phoenix to build single-family homes on the site with a 5-foot side setback. A second public hearing and vote on the change is scheduled for July 24. The development agreement was originally approved Nov. 8 with 6-foot side setbacks on each lot but the builders need the additional foot on each side to construct the models planned for the 4.9-acre site at 9075 82nd Ave. N. Are we creating problems for ourselves in the future (with setbacks) if we pass this? asked Councilor Jim Quinn. City Manager Frank Edmunds said no because the vote is project specific. Homes will be required to have a minimum 1,400 square feet of living area. The unnamed subdivision would feature a single northsouth street with 10 homes on each side. The end of the street would feature a T-turnaround, as opposed to a cul-de-sac, and a wall would be constructed around the development to give nearby homeowners more privacy. Plans call for the street to be landscaped with oaks and crepe myrtles with sidewalks on both sides. In other action, councilors: Authorized Edmunds to enter into an agreement with Science Applications International Corp. of Maitland for emergency disaster debris monitoring services. The agreement would only come into play during an emergency and does not require the city to pay SAIC until its services are rendered. Debris monitoring and management are required by FEMA for the city to be reimbursed for its cleanup costs by See COUNCIL, page 4ATougher standards take a toll on school grading By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLThe Florida Department of Education released elementary and middle school grades on July 11. As expected, numerous schools declined in grades, due to the calculations using more rigorous standards and new achievement levels. According to a FDOE press release, statewide, 89 percent of elementary and middle schools earned an A, B or C grade, and 11 percent earned a D or F grade. This has been a year of tremendous change for Floridas students, teachers and schools, said Commissioner of Education, Gerard Robinson. Floridas economic future depends on preparing our students for success. The high standards we have in place today will help our students prepare for college, the workforce and life. I am confident that we are on the right path to prepare our students to compete with the best in the nation and around the world. In Pinellas County, grades overall dropped or stayed the same. In the Tampa Bay Newspapersreadership area including 54 schools in Clearwater, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Palm Harbor, Largo, Seminole and Pinellas Park, Madeira Beach there were 22 schools that decreased in grades, five that increased, and 27 that stayed the same. Of those that stayed the same, 21 of those were maintaining A grades. Of all of these 54 schools, 25 of these were A grades and eight were Ds. Florida has raised its expectations for school grades five times in the last 10 years. The results show that after an initial drop, school grades improved consistently in the years that followed, the press release said.

The Pinellas Community Housing Foundations Proud Ground Pinellas program provides quality, move-in ready homes at incredible prices. The purchase price of a home is greatly reduced because the cost of the land is removed. Instead, the homeowner pays a modest monthly ground lease, while enjoying all the benefits of traditional homeownership. For a limited time, a grant of up to $10,000 is available to assist with closing costs. Funding for the unique program comes from the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Foreclosed and/or abandoned properties are purchased and renovated to help stem the negative impacts the unattended properties can have in communities. Proud Ground Pinellas homes feature energy saving amenities and Florida-friendly landscaping to help lower monthly household expenses. Hurricane preparedness enhancements provide additional peace of mind. Participants in Proud Ground Pinellas benefit from free homebuyer education classes, and the program provides ongoing tools and support to ensure a successful homeownership experience. Proud Ground Pinellas is an exciting housing opportunity for veterans, said Anthony Jones, executive director of the Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County. We appreciate the service and dedication of our military and hope this new program will assist them with their dream of homeownership. Veterans and active service personnel who wish to apply to the program must have a minimum credit score of 640 and income may not exceed 120 percent of the Area Median Income. As an example, for a family of three the limit is $60,900. Additional information is available on the Proud Ground Pinellas website at: www.pinellascounty .org/community/proudgroundpinellas.htm, or you can email proudgroundpinellas@pinellascounty.org or call Pinellas County Community Development at 464-8210.The Pinellas Community Housing Foundations Proud Ground Pinellas program provides quality, move-in ready homes, such as this one in Safety Harbor.Briey State disqualifies candidate for U.S. House seatCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections announced that per the State Division of Elections, Nina Hayden, Democratic candidate for U.S. House District 13 has been disqualified. The following notice will be provided to voters eligible to vote in the Democratic Primary. A candidate in the Democratic Primary race for the office of Representative in Congress, District 13, has been disqualified resulting in an unopposed candidate race.

The Pinellas County Elections Office will provide the states statement on its website, sample ballots, in mail ballot kits, at early voting locations and at the polling places within District 13 on Election Day.PSTA June ridership defies T.S. DebbyST. PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announces that despite the effects of Tropical Storm Debby, ridership numbers for June increased 3 percent over last year. To endure a period of weather like Tropical Storm Debby and still show a ridership increase over last year is nothing short of amazing, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. Last month the agency gave 1,131,217 rides, which is a 3 percent increase over June 2011 and just shy of the all-time record for June set in 2010. This is further proof as to how vital mass transit is for our community and economy, Lasher said. PSTA officials say that last months ridership was only 544 rides short of an all-time record for the June. They are confident that had it not been for Tropical Storm Debby, they would have easily broken that mark. Officials are ecstatic with the increase over last year and look forward to setting another new ridership record this month, Lasher said.

Lic. #MA47438Justin Maina, LMT Proposed county budget calls for millage rate increases By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER County Administrator Bob LaSalas budget for fiscal year 2013, includes proposed millage rate increases for the general fund as well as Emergency Medical Services, six fire districts and Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District. LaSala prefaced his July 10 budget presentation with talk about the uncertainty of economic conditions in the coming years and the steps taken to preserve the countys financial stability. He said his budget was a story about a diverse business that was prioritizing and managing its business lines to address current fiscal issues. He talked about decisions made since the economic downturn began in 2008 and the adjustments made over time to address fewer dollars coming in to pay for county government. He cautioned against going over the tipping point, which he believes we are close to or at that point. We cant respond in an emergency as quickly, he said. He gave an example of cleanup in the county parks after Tropical Storm Debby. Since budget cuts necessitated the use of roving park staff, instead of dedicated park staff, parks were cleaned up one-at-a-time as opposed to having work ongoing in all of them simultaneously. He said workplace morale was another problem due to stagnant salaries, ongoing uncertainty and increased workloads. The budget doesnt propose a pay raise for county employees until FY 2016. Service delivery would be crippled by additional (budget) reductions, he told the commission. From 2007 to 2012, constitutional officers and independent agencies have lost 730 positions, or 19 percent of their combined workforce, and now have the lowest position count since 1991. Departments governed by the Board of County Commissioners have decreased by 975 positions or 35 percent and now has the lowest position count since 1985. The BCC has reduced its budget by more than $100 million, almost 39 percent; the Sheriffs Office budget is down $72.5 million, or almost 27 percent; the remaining constitutional officers have cut $14.4 million from their collective budgets, or 26 percent; and independent agencies have cut $6.6 million, or 27 percent. Part of LaSalas budget balancing strategy has been the funding of a service level stabilization account, which was established to cover potential future shortfalls in the general fund. The balance of the fund is $28.6 million, which represents money saved by making reductions over the amount needed to balance the budget in the years 2010 through 2012. To date, none of the money has been spent. LaSala recommends beginning to draw down the SLSA in 2013, along with limiting growth and continuing to streamline operations and increase efficiencies. However, in part due to the unfunded mandate from the state for Medicaid, revenue coming in to the general fund budget is expected to be $24.1 million less than expected revenue. The longterm shortfall is projected at $30 million to 40 million. The numbers dont include the potential for a return to paying full cost of employees pensions. LaSala says the time has come to increase the countywide millage rate. He recommends an increase of .25 mills, primarily to pay for Medicaid. His budget includes no change in the millage rate for the municipal services taxing unit, which is paid by the 270,000 residents who live in unincorporated areas of Pinellas. The sheriffs budget makes up 75 percent of MSTU expenditures. Another problem area is the Emergency Medical Services Fund. LaSala proposes balancing the EMS budget using a 21.7 percent increase in the millage rate, going from .8506 to 1.0355. He said additional millage rate increases would be necessary in the future, if commissioners didnt find a way to decrease expenses. Due to a millage cap of 1.5 mills, other sources of revenue for EMS might be needed in the future, he said. Funding for the fire districts continues to be a challenge. Six of 12 fire districts have proposed millage rate increases in 2013, including Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo, Safety Harbor, Tierra Verde and South Pasadena. Water and sewer funds will remain in balance, LaSala said, as long as proposed rate increases go into effect as scheduled. LaSalas budget also includes a 14.2 percent increase for the Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District, which was requested by the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency. The increase restores the maximum millage rate that was rolled back due to state law in fiscal year 2008. LaSala went over a number of additional budget requests not included in his budget, including $655,000 for code enforcement, $135,000 for watershed management monitoring, $149,000 for OPUS staffing for the Clerk of the Circuit Court, $250,000 for OPUS staff for Business Technology Services, $78,000 for wide area network redundancy requested by BTS, and $470,000 from BTS for Wi-Fi connectivity; $840,000 for health and human services needs and others. Commissioners are expected to begin budget discussions on July 17. Proposed millage rates are set for tentative approval on July 26 in time to go out with the Property Appraisers TRIM notices on Aug. 20. Once the tentative millage rates are approved, they cannot be increased; however, they can be lowered. The first public budget hearing is Sept. 6 with the final hearing to approve millage rates and budgets scheduled on Sept. 18. The new fiscal year starts Oct. 1. Annexation negotiations continue By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Some Pinellas County residents who live in unincorporated areas may get to annex into a city sooner than planned if officials can agree on the process. Pinellas County Commissioners asked staff July 10 to continue negotiations with municipalities on an interlocal service boundary agreement on annexation within enclaves. Commissioners rejected draft language, continuing to insist that unincorporated residents have a choice under the proposed changes. An interlocal service boundary agreement would allow non-contiguous voluntary annexation within Type A enclaves, which are defined by state statute as unincorporated improved or developed areas that are enclosed on all sides by a single municipality. Staff has been working toward an agreement with municipalities with Type A enclaves since Dec. 6, 2011. Nine municipalities and two fire districts have agreed to take part in negotiations: Clearwater, Dunedin, Kenneth City, Largo, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, St. Petersburg, Seminole, Tarpon Springs, Lealman Special Fire District and Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Planning Department staff and the county attorneys office prepared a draft agreement to use as a starting point for negotiations. Commissioners approved the proposed language March 27, adding an amendment that gave property owners with existing annexation agreements a choice. Staff scheduled a meeting with representatives of the municipalities and fire districts on April 27 at Largo City Hall. The municipalities submitted a revised draft agreement to the county in May. The fire districts had not responded as of July 10. Commissioner Nancy Bostock questioned the change to the agreement made by the municipalities that applied to only some property owners. Gordon Beardslee, Planning Department program administrator, said the cities had asked for an exception for properties for which the property owner was the original signer of an annexation agreement. Those properties would automatically become annexed if an interlocal agreement were approved. Bostock expressed concern for property owners that signed an annexation agreement expecting it to be considerable time before their property would be eligible to become part of a city. They signed under old rules, she said. Were putting in new rules. She said nothing stopped any property owner who would become eligible for annexation through the interlocal agreement to request going ahead on a voluntary basis. She insisted that the new rules include consent for all property owners. Commissioner Susan Latvala said the purpose of an agreement for enclaves was to make it easier to provide services, such as water and trash, to residents in unincorporated areas surrounded by a municipality. They were forced to sign (annexation agreements) to get city services, Latvala said. Annexation agreements between cities and property owners are commonplace in Pinellas. The agreement allows property owners to receive city services before the property is eligible for annexation in exchange for a promise that property owners will voluntarily apply for annexation when the property does become eligible. The result is gaping holes in cities. We need to do the right thing and close the holes, she said. Bostock was still concerned about changing the terms of existing agreements. Now theres an exception to the exception, she said. Commissioner Neil Brickfield also questioned why there would be a different set of rules dependent on who had signed an annexation agreement. The thinking is that if the person who signed is still the owner, there would be no problem. It (annexation) would be voluntary, Beardslee said.

4A SEB Beacon, July 19, 2012behind her. Its kind of cool to look back at that from time to time. After that experience, she wanted to continue it further. She started youth cheerleading at SYAA for peewee football games. When she entered middle school in the fall of 2003, she began cheerleading for the volleyball and basketball teams. At that point, it was no longer the parents who were the audience watching; now it was her closest friends and classmates. It was kind of hard being in front of people you know in school, said Cusmano. When it was SYAA, I knew a few people in the stands, but when I cheered at Seminole Middle, we were very close to the bleachers so it was a closer contact with the fans. So very little room to screw up. By the time she entered her freshman year at Seminole High School, multitasking became a balancing act. While being on the swim team, she joined the freshmen cheerleading squad as well as the high schools competitive cheer squad. I always knew I wanted to be a Warhawk cheerleader after all the times that I looked through my mom and aunts high school yearbooks, said Cusmano. With competitive cheerleading, there is a lot of hard work and dedication in order to keep your endurance up. Practices were three times a week for two hours. Once we had the routine down, we would have to do it over and over. With all-star cheerleading your not cheering for the team, you are the team. By her senior year, she had been the captain and co-captain of two different squads starting from her freshman year, including varsity football cheerleading. She maintained over a 3.75 GPA and was a member of the National Honors Society. After she graduated in 2010, she decided to make the attempt at becoming a Buccaneer cheerleader. Although she did make it to the final round, she was cut. A year later, she decided to try for another cheerleading squad. She decided to cheer for the Tampa Bay Lightning as a Lightning Girl. With the Lightning games, there was a lot of interaction with the fans and we did a lot with the crowd by always trying to get them on their feet, said Cusmano. There wasnt that much dancing, but we had to keep everyone energized. When she finally made the Buccaneers squad, she realized all the hard work had finally paid off. According to Cusmano, upon making the squad, what she found interesting was many of the women saw the squad as a bonus, but most of all a privilege. So many of them have full-time, 9-to-5 jobs, said Cusmano. We have teachers, career women, businesswomen; even car dealers are on the team. Everyone has their careers and then this is just the cherry on top of the whip cream. Along with performing on the sidelines for the Bucs, she is currently a full time student at St. Petersburg College in Seminole. She is doing her prerequisite courses and plans to apply for the dental hygienist program in November. I schedule my classes to balance with my cheerleading obligations. School is always during the daytime; practices for the Bucs are at night, said Cusmano. I wanted to originally go into nursing, but I decided on going into the dental hygienic program because I really like working with kids. I want to go into pediatric dentistry. Cusmano will make her first appearance as a cheerleader during training camp on July 27. Her first game appearance will be Friday, Aug. 17 when the Bucs play host to the Tennessee Titans. That same game will feature the Junior Buccaneer cheerleaders who will be performing along side the squad during halftime. According to Cusmano, that will be a huge dj vu feeling for her. Im just excited for the moment that I just walk out onto that field and just know at this moment and time, its real, she said. Looking at those girls, its going to remind me from where I came from to where I am now. CUSMANO, from page 1Athe federal government.

Those terms are the event must be open to the public, the boosters must reimburse the city for any expenses and the boosters must reimburse the city for any cleanup costs. Moved the Dec. 25 City Council meeting back a week to Tuesday, Dec. 18 and passed a motion to close city offices on Monday, Dec. 24. Councilor Leslie Waters suggested the city form a development committee for a new park at the site of the former Jesses Landing restaurant on Park Boulevard. Councilor Bob Matthews suggested public hearings for input on the park project. Edmunds said two auto electric charge stations being built by Progress Energy are under construction at the Seminole Recreation Center parking lot. COUNCIL, from page 1Aimplementing the Common Core State Standards in 2014-15, the progress seen over the next few years will smooth the transition to the more challenging standards. Statewide, 43 percent of schools received A grades; 26 percent got Bs; 20 percent got Cs; 9 percent got Ds; and 2 percent got Fs. Throughout the entire county, there were six schools who earned F grades: Azalea Middle, Fairmount Park Elementary, Maximo Elementary, Melrose Elementary, Imagine Charter School and Imagine Middle School. The FDOE sent a letter home to parents in July, saying that the state uses the students FCAT and end-of-course assessment to help calculate school grades. Schools that improve a letter grade or earn an A receive additional state funds up to $100 per student in recognition of their academic achievement. Struggling schools can get assistance and additional funding an average of almost $2,000 per student for F schools to help them improve, the letter said. To help prepare students for college and careers, the state has been moving to higher academic standards, new assessments that measure students progress toward meeting the standards, and higher academic levels for subjects such as reading and math. These new standards, assessments and achievements are being used to determine school grades this year. The letter also explained how in the past when standards were changed, there were initial drops in grades but then they improved, assuring parents that Florida will continue to adjust and invest where necessary to ensure academic success. The individual grade breakdown for the TBNarea schools is as follows:Elementary schools Anona Elementary Sunk to a B this year after maintaining A for at least the previous five years. Bardmoor Elementary Sunk to a B this year after getting an A in 2011. It has had a mixed history of grades, with a C in 2010, an A in 2009, a C in 2008, and a B in 2007. Belcher Elementary Sunk to a C this year after getting Bs in 2011 and 2010 and getting As for the three years before that. Belleair Elementary Sunk to a D this year after getting Cs the last two years, an A in 2009, and a C and a B in 2008 and 2007 respectively. Cross Bayou Elementary Maintained an A this year. In 2010 it got a C, but the three years before that it maintained its streak of As. Curlew Creek Elementary Rose to an A this year, recovering from its minor hiccup of a B in 2011, breaking up its otherwise streak of As. Curtis Fundamental Maintained its perfect record of As these last six years. Cypress Woods Elementary Maintained its perfect record of As these last six years. Dunedin Elementary Fell to a D this year after getting Cs in 2011 and 2010, and before that a B, A and B in 2009, 2008 and 2007 respectively. Eisenhower Elementary Maintained its C that it has gotten since 2010. Before that, it earned a B, A and B in 2009, 2008 and 2007 respectively. Forest Lakes Elementary Maintained its perfect streak of As for the last six years.

SCHOOLS, from page 1A Photo by BOB McCLUREFrom left, Jolie Thellab, 7; Lakoda Barnes, 6; and Max Thellab, 8, read to Cavalier King Daniels Spaniels Georgy and Willy as Ellen Leber watches.Canine comfort By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Children and dogs just simply go together. So when the Seminole Community Library had the opportunity to bring in a pair of dogs from a local owner, Youth Services Supervisor Jill Storm gave the thumbs up. It isnt the first time the library has used dogs in its childrens reading program. Its been done twice before for short intervals. But for one reason or another it was discontinued. A few months ago, Seminole resident Ellen Leber thought her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels might make a good addition to the childrens program. So Leber contacted library aid Lynn Losasso about the possibility and Losasso got the ball rolling. I love dogs, said Losasso. So I pushed Jill (Storm) to get them in here. Shortly thereafter, Lebers two dogs Georgy and Willy were a part of the weekly Magic Carpet Reading Club on Mondays at 10 a.m. During club meetings, children read to the dogs from various books of their choice. The main objective of the program is to provide a relaxed and dog-friendly atmosphere, which allows students in kindergarten to third grade to practice the skill of reading. The idea is to build excitement about reading. Dogs are very non-judgmental and this provides a nurturing environment, said Losasso. Its a fun thing that encourages children to read. Leber has been heavily involved with Project PUP, which stands for Pets Uplifting People, for about seven years. She has used her animals as therapy dogs at nursing homes and with invalid veterans, as well as with terminal patients referred by Suncoast Hospice. When she noticed other dogs being used in other area libraries in childrens reading programs, Leber decided to approach the Seminole Library. Were thrilled theyre doing it, Leber said. I saw another librarian doing it and I thought it would be good here. She (Leber) has enhanced the program and made people come to it, said Losasso. Due to the success this summer, Leber will continue to use her dogs in conjunction with the childrens reading club this fall during the week after school. For more information on the librarys childrens reading program, call 394-6913. For information about Project Pup, call Leber at 593-9395.Project PUP comes to Seminole LibraryRedington Shores maintains millage By WAYNE AYERSREDINGTON SHORES There will be no increase in the towns tax rate in fiscal 2013. The City Commission began a discussion of the towns budget for the upcoming year at the July 11 regular meeting with a decision to leave the millage rate at 2.0. That has been the rate for the past three years. Despite a flat tax rate, the town is expecting an additional $25,000 in ad valorem tax revenue next year, due to a forecast increase in property values. Overall town revenues are expected to rise by only about $8,000. A predicted 43 percent drop in permit fees will erase much of the gain from property tax revenues. Due to an expected slowdown in construction activity, the fee income should be less next year, Mayor Bert Adams said in a later comment.Abandoned beach property law urgedCommissioner Casey Wojcik and a concerned resident are urging tougher enforcement of a law prohibiting articles from being left on the beach overnight. The code section dealing with abandoned property on beaches says items left on the beach for 24 hours will be considered abandoned property, and subject to confiscation and disposition by the town. Mentioned are chairs, lounges, tents, canopies, volleyball nets, and other such items. Wojcik wants the law to read, Property left on the beach more than 24 hours will be confiscated. Wojcik said left-behind articles cluttering the beaches is an ongoing problem, and he wants people to get the message, If you leave it out more than 24 hours, the town is going to take it. Resident Red McGarry said he especially objects to tents remaining on the beach overnight. This is regularly violated on weekends with people claiming their place on Friday night and then taking (the tents) down at the end of the weekend, he said. McGarry said he had personally watched winds blow these tents dangerously down the beach, once hitting a little girl. The public needs education on the issue, and also laws warning use of fireworks by amateurs, which he said was another problem on the beach during the Fourth of July period. When you combine alcohol, little kids and fireworks, you are asking for trouble, plus disturbing the peace, McGarry said. Commissioner Lee Holmes said the town used to red tag items on the beach, giving notice that they would be removed if not taken up within 24 hours. McGarry also said that had been an effective procedure. Mayor Adams said that enforcing the rule over the weekend would be a problem because the town does not have the personnel to do it.Zoning change aids efforts for proposed Madeira hotel By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH A Marriott hotel proposed for a 1.5-acre waterfront property on American Legion Drive moved closer to reality at the July 10 City Commission meeting. The commission approved a change in the zoning of the property from Commercial Retail/ Commercial General (C-3) to Planned Development (PD). The change allows the developer more flexibility in areas such as density, building height and setbacks and structural requirements. In return, the developer may be asked to commit to additional amenities and civic improvements that benefit the city. Madeira Beach has seen a loss of tourist facilities in recent years, and new hotel accommodations are seen as a much needed and desired addition. Planning consultant Dave Healy told the commission the project met the citys entire comprehensive plan and planned development regulations. Commissioner Terry Lister said he feared the zoning change would mean all the codes go out the window. Healy said the Planned Development designation does not set aside all code provisions, but provides developers the flexibility to do more than previously allowed. This is an important project, but a lot of details still need to be worked out, Healy said. Under the planned development regulations, the city gets benefits if the project is approved, he added. One change being considered is allowing a 90unit hotel to be built, rather than the 40-unit maximum permitted under the existing zoning. Residents Sara Massey and Nancy Gorski were concerned about increased traffic in the area due to the hotel. During the season, the roads are already quite packed, said Gorski. Commenting on the proposed new hotel, developer Housh Ghovaee of Northside Engineering said, We are extremely pleased to bring such a wonderful high profile project to the town. The prospective co-owner of the hotel, Steve Page of BCTM Group in Indian Shores, described the facility as having 90 rooms, a restaurant/bistro, meeting room, outside swimming pool, spa, a captains club consisting of bathrooms, showers, gathering space and lockers for boaters, and 26 boat slips. Shaner Hotels of State College, Pa., would manage it.

According to a police report, officers were searching for Kimberlee K. Lewen, after she failed to return the night before to a room at the Tahitian Inn, 11275 Gulf Blvd., which she shared with her boyfriend. Officers spotted Lewen walking on the sidewalk in front of the Tahitian about 7:40 a.m. Lewen told officers she was drinking rum the night before, got intoxicated and woke up in a hotel room at the Satellite Motel, 11205 Gulf Blvd. Lewen said the hotel room was unlocked and she thought it was the same room she had checked into with her boyfriend. Officers took Lewen to her room at the Tahitian Inn and reassured her boyfriend she was OK. A routine check turned up the outstanding warrant on Lewen. She was taken to Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $123. Lewen was released later in the day.Pair arrested in pot growing operationLARGO Police seized 121 marijuana plants, three rifles and four handguns July 3 and made two arrests stemming from an investigation of an indoor marijuana growing operation in the past two months. Intelligence indicated that the suspects were heavily armed with rifles and handguns and growing marijuana in the northwest section of Largo. On July 3, at 6:30 a.m., police served a search warrant at 911 16th Ave. NW. Besides the arms and marijuana plants being seized, two suspects were arrested. Jose Dickerson, 33, of Largo was charged with one count of cultivation of cannabis, one count of lease to manufacture a controlled substance and one count of possession of paraphernalia. He was taken to Pinellas County Jail under $55,150 bond. Jeffrey Fowler, 34, of Largo was charged with one count of cultivation of cannabis and one count of possession of paraphernalia. He was taken to the county jail under $5,150 bond.Palm Harbor drowning appears accidentalPALM HARBOR A Palm Harbor woman was pronounced dead July 13 after her husband found her floating face down in their pool. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Barbara Reid, 83, woke up about 8 a.m., did a load of laundry, then told her husband, Joseph Reid, 83, that she was going for a swim. He found her floating in the pool about 9 a.m. He pulled her out of the water and called 911. Deputies responded just after 10:30 a.m. East Lake Fire Department also responded and pronounced Mrs. Reid dead at the scene. Deputies say the drowning appears to be accidental, perhaps health related. The Medical Examiners Office will determine the cause and manner of death.Beware of summer scamsCLEARWATER Clearwater Police warn the public about scam artists in the summer months. Scammers draw victims into a conversation about the work that needs to be done on their home and offers a bargain home repair, police said. These are some tips to be aware of: The repairperson drives an unmarked truck or van with an out-of-state license. Only rarely will legitimate home improvement companies solicit door-to-door. They usually distribute fliers or make phone calls because its more cost-effective for them. The worker has no business identification, local address or telephone number. Always request identification so you can call the company for verification. You are offered a special price if you sign that day. Honest home contractors dont pressure customers to sign a contract or order immediately. Beware of excuses such as We just finished a job around the corner and had extra materials that we could offer you at a discounted price. Professional companies do not operate in that manner.

The vote negated a June 26 request by commissioners to the county attorneys office to develop ballot language to allow residents to have a vote on the matter. Before the decision, County Attorney Jim Bennett informed the commission that three citizens had filed a lawsuit June 26 against the supervisor of elections and Commissioners Susan Latvala, John Morroni, Ken Welch and Karen Seel, individually and in their official capacity. The suit, filed by Maria Scruggs, who is running against Welch in the Aug. 14 primary, Beverly Billiris and H. Patrick Wheeler, asks the court for a declaratory judgment to reinstate charter term limits for county commissioners as approved by referendum in 1996. At the time, the board consisted for five commissioners elected from countywide districts. The term limit amendment was challenged in the courts and declared unconstitutional Sept. 8, 2003. Some residents believe that a May 10 Supreme Court decision on charter-based term limits can be applied retroactively, meaning the commissioners named in the suit are no longer eligible to serve. The county attorneys office believes that the new rules established under the May Supreme Court ruling would be applied going forward from the date of the decision, not retroactively. The new ruling would allow commissioners to propose an amendment to the charter to allow term limits, which citizens could vote on by referendum. The commissioners were making plans to place the matter on the Nov. 6 ballot However, due to the lawsuit, which was filed the same day commissioners directed the attorneys office to begin work on ballot language and ordinance amending the charter to allow term limits, Bennett advised caution in proceeding. In another letter to commissioners, Bennett said the simultaneous introduction of a question on the 2012 general election ballot proposing term limits during the pendency of any legal challenge attempting to reinstate term limits approved in 1996 could create significant levels of confusion for the electorate, could create the potential for conflicting results and inconsistent term limit provisions and could increase the potential for additional litigation to resolve these issues. He presented three options to the board. The first, which was approved, was to take no action. The second was to proceed with advertisement of a proposed ordinance, which would have taken effect Jan. 2, 2013, to put a term limit referendum on the November 2014 election ballot. The third would have approved advertising of an ordinance to schedule a term limits referendum on Nov. 6 of the current year.Defense of county officialsBennett told commissioners that his office could find no conflict of interest that would prohibit county attorneys from representing everyone named in the suit. He said representation by the countys attorneys did not prevent the use outside counsel. Although the suit is against the commissioners in their individual capacity, at this stage in the litigation there are no allegations in the complaint of individual action or wrongdoing on the part of the named commissioners, Bennett wrote in a letter dated July 10. Bennett also pointed out benefits and risks of mutual representation. Benefits include lower cost and a more timely resolution. Risks include a possibility of a direct, adverse conflict, which would require the county attorneys office to withdraw its representation.DiscussionCommissioner Norm Roche requested that decisions about the lawsuit and referendum be tabled until after a closed-door meeting with the countys attorneys. Bennett said the suit had been served July 9 and that the defendants had 120 days to respond. He said a closed-door meeting could be scheduled to talk about the cost of the suit and strategy. He cautioned that no other topics could be discussed. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she didnt object to a close-door session. Seel agreed, as long as the parameters of the discussion were understood. Bostock said, regardless, a closed-door discussion would have no bearing on the July 10 agenda items. We need to stop, let the lawsuit proceed and take direction from that, she said.Briey Largo High School car, truck show plannedLARGO Tri City Cruisers in conjunction with Largo High School presents the first Largo High School Car and Truck Show, located at 401 Missouri Ave. in Largo, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15.

The concept of the tour involves FOX News legal expert Bob Massi visiting a property that represents a remarkable, rags-to-riches turnaround, and then conducting a live, on-air seminar at the venue that would help others rebuild their own dreams. In 2009, Tampa-area businessman Bill Edwards purchased the Treasure Island club and brought it out of bankruptcy. He renamed and rebranded the facility, transforming it into one of Americas most talked-about private clubs in near-record time. The list of headline entertainers that The Club has hosted includes Jon Secada, KC & The Sunshine Band, the Isley Brothers, Three Dog Night, Ben Vereen, David Cassidy, Jefferson Starship, The Florida Orchestra and Mary Wilson of The Supremes; along with comedy concerts with Richard Lewis, Kevin Nealon, Colin Quinn, Robert Klein and Wayne Brady. Were flattered and humbled that the FOX News Channel has selected The Club at Treasure Island to be the first-ever property featured in the Rebuilding Your Dreams tour, said Edwards. And Id like to remind the people in Tampa Bay who may be navigating tough economic times: Never quit. Anything is possible. Tampa-area residents whod like to attend the broadcast should email RebuildingYourDreams @FOXNews.com.

Excerpts from Schnurs lecture on efforts to build a stadium and bring Major League baseball team to the area follow:The areas attempts to secure a major league franchise exemplified the regional rift between Hillsborough County and Pinellas County in the 1980s, an important transitional period for the county. Although St. Petersburg civic leader and former St. Petersburg Times publisher Jack Lake started to lay the groundwork for an MLB franchise by the 1970s, the struggles between Tampa and St. Petersburg over the site of the stadium during the 1980s often worked to the detriment of the entire region. The actions of earlier Major League Baseball leaders, such as Commissioner Peter Ueberroth and National League President Bill White, made the area have to play extra innings to win the game. The biggest redevelopment project at the time, of course, was the plan to transform the Gas Plant area in St. Petersburg into the site of a multi-purpose stadium and this required countywide support. By a 3-2 vote in December 1983, Pinellas County commissioners agreed to support funding for a baseball or multipurpose sports stadium in St. Petersburg. Support was strong in St. Petersburg, though many hotels and establishments in north county questioned the value of using dollars from tourists to fund the complex that became Tropicana Field. Early funding and loan notes were drawn up and executed before the end of the year. With the defeat of Gabe Cazares in his re-election bid in November 1984, an anti-stadium majority held control of the county commission and in mid-November 1984, the new commission voted against supporting the stadium initiative. St. Petersburg responded by suing the commission to assure that it would honor the original agreement, a case that the city prevailed in during 1985. By this time, the Twins had courted with Tampa. In the mid-1980s, the Texas Rangers became a possible team for relocation as well. Things really became interesting in the mid-1980s. In July 1986, Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth informed St. Petersburgs Mayor Edward Cole via telegraph that the city is not among the top candidates for a franchise. A week later, on July 23, a public hearing at the Bayfront Center attracted approximately 2,000 people to discuss the stadium, with supporters in the majority. On July 24, the members of St. Petersburgs city council approved a measure to build the stadium by a 6-3 vote. Build it and they will come, was the thought at the time. A well-attended groundbreaking took place at the future site of the stadium, on Nov. 22, 1986, with 9,000 in attendance. By that time, the Chicago White Sox seemed to be the perfect suitor. The White Sox played in old Comisky Park, a venue that had shown its age since opening in the summer of 1910. On Dec. 5, this chapter of the baseball drama seemed to end, as the ownership of the Chicago White Sox said that the team would not move to St. Petersburg. After the Illinois Legislature proposed a new plan to finance a replacement stadium, leaders in St. Petersburg felt their hopes were dashed. However, uncertainties of this plan for a $120 million stadium allowed residents of the Tampa Bay area to believe that the Florida White Sox might be a reality. The drama resumed on and off for another year and a half with the Sox eventually deciding to stay up. Construction on the Florida Suncoast Dome began on Jan. 5, 1987. The original stadium design, slated to cost about $85 million, allowed forBuild it and they will comePlenty of hits and misses, but Pinellas finally gets pro baseball flexibility and multipurpose events. The actual name was selected from over 19,900 entries and was announced on May 1. By mid-July, pockets of contamination were detected in some areas of the former Gas Plant. Remediation efforts delayed construction and added to the cost of preparing the site. The Florida Suncoast Dome opened with a big celebration in February 1990. Later known as the Thunderdome and Tropicana Field, the original stadium configuration remained partially incomplete to allow for multipurpose activities. Costs to date were $110 million. In June 1990, Major League Baseball announced a timetable for expansion that would allow for the addition of two teams in the National League with an announcement scheduled for June 1991 Finally, on March 9, 1995, new expansion franchises were awarded to a Tampa Bay group. The Devil Rays played their first game on March 31, 1998 against the Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field before a crowd of 45,369. 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. Currently, stories are being sought from those who lived in a Pinellas community between the years 1910 and 1950. Provide a brief description of your story and mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Alternately, stories may be submitted by email to editorial@TBNweekly.com.

Photo courtesy of ARCHIVES AND LIBRARY, HERITAGE VILLAGEA groundbreaking ceremony for the Florida Suncoast Dome was held Nov. 23, 1986 with 22,000 in attendance. The making of PinellasCentennial storiesEditors note: Ernest William Billy Bie submitted this description of the Bie familys life in the boathouse, a historic home in Indian Rock Beach. It was built in 1911 or 1912 on 24 p ilings and turned into a home for Bies mother and six children. Bies father, Norman Bie, and his mother, Rita Monrose Bie, were born in 1895 and 1894 respectively.The boathouse was built about 1911 on property owned by Horace H. Hamlin, who owned numerous other properties in the county. Harry Ulmer, a citrus grove entrepreneur who kept his boat Miss Largo in one of its three boat wells, built it. During the early 1930s, local mullet fishermen Bill Ransom and Ross Johns lived in it. In 1938 my father, Norman A. Bie, a Realtor in Tampa since 1918, bought the boathouse from Hamlin. He proceeded to turn it into a home for his wife Rita and six children, ages 3 to 15, plus his real estate office. When we moved in, the first floor was two open boat wells with catwalks, and the roadside of the center boat well had been floored to use as a garage. The second floor had one large room on the west side with an open porch on the east side overlooking the bay. Mother cleverly divided the large room into fourths by nailing up strings and hanging bed sheets over them, which created a kitchen and three bedrooms, one for my three sisters, one for us three boys, and one for my parents. In the kitchen we had an icebox, which was replenished several times a week by an ice truck that came to our house, and the stove was a three-burner metal kerosene stove. Mother used a washboard and bucket to do our laundry. Remember, 1938 was one of the Great Depression years and times were not easy. Within three years, Dad had the boat wells completely floored to make three rooms and a bath. The center was his real estate office. Upstairs, partitions were built forming living and dining rooms, kitchen, two bedrooms and bath. The porch was fully screened. Soon a third floor dormitory and bath were added and a small building next to the boathouse for mothers laundry room. With youngsters sleeping on the third floor, Dad added a ladder on the bay side from the top floor down to the first as a fire escape. It has never been used for that purpose, but we kids and friends, children and grandchildren have certainly had fun jumping off the ladder into the bay at high tide. The boathouse was a wonderful place to grow up. Over the years we had bicycles, a kayak, canoe, 25horsepower motorboat and water skis. We had a library full of books, cards and games, ping-pong table, piano, ukulele, harmonica and guitar. We caught fish with hook-and-line, rods, nets and homemade spear gun. Bay scallops were plentiful as were blue crabs in the Gulf. In 1946 Dad put a stable on the lot across Gulf Boulevard from the boathouse and two horses, Trippi and Danny that we rode on the beach. They loved swimming in the Gulf! High tides have brought water into the first floor maybe 15 times through the years, but no storm has so much as removed a shingle. Dad lived in the boathouse until he died in 1974. Mother lived there until she was 98 years old. The boathouse continues to be home base for our Bie family, now and into the future.

Viewpoints 11A Beacon, July 19, 2012Another one bites the dust. A Miami federal judge has struck down the new law prohibiting Florida doctors from discussing gun ownership with their patients. The ruling extends the legal losing streak of Gov. Rick Scott and right-wing lawmakers, who have set a pathetic record for unconstitutional bills. Written by the National Rifle Association, the so-called Firearm Owners Privacy Act would have prevented concerned physicians from asking patients about guns kept in their houses. Its a reasonable query in domestic situations in which children might be at risk. But the GOP-controlled Legislature wants doctors to shut up about guns and stick to lecturing women about their abortion decisions. So much for privacy. By necessity, doctors ask lots of personal questions. Are you using any illegal drugs? How much alcohol do you drink in a week? Do you smoke cigarettes? Do you suffer from depression? Weve all filled out the checklists while sitting in the waiting room. And, on the examination table, weve all heard doctors and nurses ask things we wouldnt post on Facebook. Say, have you noticed if your urine is changing color? Uh, no. Most of us have never been asked by our health-care providers whether we have a gun, or where on the premises we keep it. However, most of us dont have bullet scars, needle tracks or booze on our breath when showing up for a medical appointment. Some people do, and too often they have kids. Doctors who ask questions are usually just doctors who care, and the best doctors have more questions than others. The ban on asking about gun habits originated after an Ocala couple reportedly claimed their physician wouldnt treat them anymore because they refused to talk about it. Cue the NRA, which had no trouble finding a stooge in the Legislature to sponsor a bill that effectively prohibited physicians from raising the subject. Republican supporters claimed that merely by inquiring about firearms in the house, doctors are infringing on a patients Second Amendment rights. The argument is embarrassingly lame. Suggesting that someone put a trigger lock on their handgun is not quite the same as confiscating it. Extending the Legislatures knothead logic, a doctor who promotes the safe use of condoms is violating your constitutional right to accidentally impregnate whomever you want. The gun law was doomed in the courts from the day the NRA hacks delivered it. Still, it passed last year and was proudly signed by Scott, generating a swift legal challenge from the Florida Pediatric Society, the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and other groups. In the media, the battle became known as Docs vs. Glocks, and on June 29 the docs won. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke made permanent an order blocking the law, saying it violated the free-speech rights of physicians. She said the wording of the legislation was vague and offered no guidelines for health-care practitioners. For instance, the statute allowed doctors to ask about firearms only if they believed in good faith that the information was relevant to a patients care and safety. Yet no specific standards were laid out in the law. The judge said it had a chilling effect on medical providers who feared heavy fines or even losing their licenses if they spoke to families about gun safety a rather serious health issue in Florida, judging by the number of emergency room admissions. Increasingly, doctors around the country are putting firearm ownership on their checklists of questions for patients. Thats because, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, one out of every 25 children delivered to pediatric trauma centers has a gunshot wound. Its likely that Florida will appeal Judge Cookes decision and try to reinstate the doctor-muzzling law. The governor thinks its a dandy piece of legislation, and totally constitutional. His hapless scorecard in that area speaks for itself. Tom Julin, a prominent First Amendment lawyer involved in challenging the statute, recently wrote in the South Florida Sun Sentinel: The fact of the matter is the NRA asked the Legislature to pass this law to censor doctors who might advocate gun control the NRA opposes. Doctors who see children bearing bullet holes on a regular basis can be very powerful advocates. To do their jobs right, doctors are obligated to ask about anything that might affect the health of you and your family. You certainly cant be forced to answer those questions, just as your doctor cant be forced to keep you as a patient. Take your funny-colored pee and move on.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. The group known as Christians in Recovery has published Signs of a Spiritual Awakening. As I read the signs, I realized that although these ideas may have applications for most people, theyre not of much use for persons embroiled in politics, either as office-holders or campaign workers. Here are the spiritual signs, and my responses to them. 1. AN INCREASED TENDENCY TO LET THINGS HAPPEN RATHER THAN MAKE THEM HAPPEN. Such a laissez-faire attitude spells suicide to a politician and his/her supporters. Politics requires people to take any sort of action that will defeat the enemy. Up to and including assassination attempts, or starting a rumor that the opposing candidate was born in Qatar as a product of his mothers one-night stand with a camel jockey. 2. FREQUENT ATTACKS OF SMILING. Political smiles are allowed only during campaign appearances, or when the latest poll shows your side is gaining. Smiling is a sign of satisfaction, and satisfied campaigners usually lose. 3. FEELINGS OF BEING CONNECTED WITH OTHERS AND NATURE. The best example of this would take place as a candidate shakes hands with a contributor who has just forked over a $100,000 campaign contribution in a rose garden filled with fawns and chipmunks. 4. FREQUENT OVERWHELMING EPISODES OF APPRECIATION. Again, such moments usually are tied to large contributions, or to public endorsements of a candidate by supporters such as Oprah Winfrey, the Pope or God. 5. A TENDENCY TO THINK AND ACT SPONTANEOUSLY RATHER THAN FROM FEARS BASED ON PAST EXPERIENCE. Such actions by a politician spell certain doom. Campaign trails are littered with the bodies of candidates who blurted the truth or acted as his/her gut feelings dictated at that moment. Take away the teleprompter from Barack Obama, the rehearsed answers from Mitt Romney, and the 3 x 5 cards from Ronald Reagan, and what have you got? Chaos. Anarchy. Do you think JFK announced, Ich bin eine Berliner! just as the phrase crossed his mind at the podium? Not bloody likely. 6. AN UNMISTAKABLE ABILITY TO ENJOY EACH MOMENT. Change each to an occasional and youll be closer to the realities of political campaigning. Today, the pressures coming to bear on candidates and their staffs are unremitting. In the not-so-distant past, campaigners could put in a grueling 18-hour day and then have a beer and relax while waiting for the morning papers to arrive. No more. Today, the Internet and other electronic news media simply do not rest. If Mitt Romney says, Bubbaloo! at 10 a.m., the Obama people must respond with an antibubbaloo statement by 11. If theyre too slow, the media will come out at noon with Obama campaign headquarters seem at a loss to reply to Gov. Romneys bubbaloo announcement. Theres not much room for enjoyable moments in such a lifestyle. 7. A LOSS OF ABILITY TO WORRY. Ha! 8. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN CONFLICT. Ha! 9. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN INTERPRETING THE ACTIONS OF OTHERS. Much of politics is necessarily devoted to interpreting the actions of your opponents, followed by issuing public statements that misinterpret and misconstrue those actions, or cast a negative spotlight on them. 10. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN JUDGING OTHERS. No way, Jose. If you cant be a fairly accurate judge of the characters and motivations of the political players (both friendly and enemy) youd better find yourself another game. 11. A LOSS OF INTEREST IN JUDGING SELF. This trait in a politician need not be harmful provided that he/she has already accurately analyzed his strong and weak points. He can then proceed to hide his defects and vulnerabilities from the voting public so that voters will be conned into judging him as being trustworthy, intelligent, strong, etc. 12. GAINING THE ABILITY TO LOVE WITHOUT EXPECTING ANYTHING IN RETURN. In politics and in many other areas of life, the term love is bandied about so much that its almost meaningless. Any candidate who tells a crowd of 500 or 50,000 persons I love you! should not be believed. You cant love anyone you dont know pretty well, and no candidate can get up close and personal with all those voters out there. A typical candidate doesnt exude or expect love. Or respect. Or worship. All he wants is your vote (along with a campaign contribution, if possible). **** Does all of the above mean that politics completely rules out genuine idealism, love of country and a desire to serve the public? Not in the least. It simply rules out the sort of spiritual awakening that can lift a person above the fray and purify his soul. Politics is a battleground, messy, impure, and about as spiritual as a pro football game. But it can still be great fun.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net. No room for spiritual awakeningsI have a love-hate relationship with bridges. The panoramic view of meandering rivers and restless seas from the tops of bridges makes memories. Being stuck on a bridge with a full bladder makes nightmares. My boss told me that he recently was held up on the bridge at Johns Pass twice on the same trip to and from his destination. I can top that. Before the bridge was rebuilt, I was also held up on it twice on the same trip but both times on the way back. Must have taken me 35 minutes to get to the Madeira side. There were more mariners passing through the spans that February afternoon than there were boats evacuating Dunkirk in World War II. Trust me on this. I had plenty of time to count them. Though I think that our transportation planners sometimes come up with a BAD idea Build Another Drawbridge I recognize that for some places there are few alternatives, such as at Johns Pass. And I prefer a drawbridge over a ferry any day. You dont want to be on a ferry in Lake Superior in the winter, which explains why the Aerial Lift Bridge was built in Duluth, Minn. It was one of the first bridges Ive ever crossed as a boy growing up in northern Wisconsin and remains one of my favorites. The bridge was built in 1905 and upgraded in 1929 to its current lifting design meaning straight up as it operates today. Its probably Duluths most famous and beloved piece of architecture, even though it looks as if were built from an Erector Set. The last time I crossed that bridge was when I was on vacation in 2004, just for the heck of it. The bridge takes you from the mainland in Duluth to Minnesota Point, a seven-mile narrow sand spit that leads to nowhere. The next time I make a decision to take the Aerial Lift Bridge just for the heck of it, Ill forgo having two Leinenkugel beers at nearby Grandmas restaurant. As you are waiting for the lift to come down, its kind of hard to enjoy the bridges distinct operating mechanisms when the most prevalent thought running through your head is wheres the nearest bathroom. Have a favorite name of a bridge? Mine is the Bridge of Gods, a span in the magnificent Columbia River Gorge between Oregon and Washington.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Drivers SeatBob Driver Florida loses a silly legal battleFireworks revelers show lack of conscience Editor: Thank you for your timely article (Heart of the Matter) in the July 12th edition of the Bee. Todays increasing disregard for the inherent responsibilities of all citizens to care for our natural resources is appalling. As Gulf side residents of Indian Rocks Beach, our neighbors and we have seen increasing behavior mentioned in Southmayds writing. We have watched beach goers throw whole cases of beer bottles into the sea oats on occasions when the sheriffs deputies come by on patrol. The Independence Day lack of conscience shown by fireworks revelers was, indeed, disgraceful. As noted in the article, the shore erosion had a serious effect on the evening. This was an inconvenience that sensible people expect to live with. Ms. Southmayd rightly pointed out that all parties involved in the display should have returned, at least the next morning, to clean up the mess. Despite the overflowing trash baskets, many did pile the trash next to the containers. Many did not. When we, and other residents, combed the beach the next day, the volume of junk was unbelievable. City workers continue to do an amazing job in caring for our beautiful beach. I saw a terrible train wreck years ago. The mess left on the morning of the 5th was avid reminder. IRB staff should not be expected to do train wrecks. A suggestion is that, perhaps, civic organizations might sponsor (with the city of IRB) annual celebration events to help control the chaotic situation. As we all know, groups such as IRB Action 2000, IRB Home Owners, Rotary Club, Beach Art Center and others continue to sponsor excellent family events throughout the year. Most people take for granted the huge amount of volunteer efforts that go into the preparation and staging of these events. One is familiar with the sage remark that, if you want something done, ask a busy person. Perhaps, a joint meeting to include representatives of these organizations and the city may be scheduled to consider possibilities. Dealing with the three-mile long beach area for holidays like New Years Eve and the 4th is a challenge. I believe that, with some old-fashioned brainstorming, something will be done. Ralph E.

Carl Hiaasen Tom Germond story here of how the bridge got its name, but you can find out more about it at www.portofcascadelocks.org/bridge. Or just go there, enjoy the scenery and surroundings and learn about Sam Hill, a famous innovator in the Pacific Northwest. Closer to home, I enjoy the view of brawny Jacksonville from the bridge on I-95 over the St. Johns River. I didnt enjoy the view decades ago when you had to pay a toll on the bridge to cross the river. And what the Sam Hill is up with the proposal to convert the Howard Frankland Bridge into a toll bridge? (You knew Id work Sam Hill in somehow). Not sure whos the brainless bureaucrat that decided that would be a good idea, but he probably runs with the same crowd that decided we need a state university in Lakeland. The Howard Frankland is my least favorite bridge. Im never sure on how much time to allot for a trip to Tampa International Airport because of the traffic frenzy, which is akin to the running of the wildebeasts across the Maui River. Might be easier to leave your car at St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport and book a flight to Tampa International. I pray to Manito I never have to do that.The Aerial LIft Bridge in Duluth, Minn., in May 1996.

Each online assessment takes about seven minutes or less to complete, and includes factors such as overall health, family history and lifestyle choices. After submitting information, participants receive personalized, confidential reports that explain risks and provide recommendations for lifestyle changes, placing more focus on prevention, early detection and wellness. Tampa Bay area resident, Joseph Guido, recently completed one of the assessments. I went online to take the heart risk assessment because I previously suffered from two silent heart attacks and became interested in learning more about how to take care of my heart, said Guido in a press release. The assessment said that I was atrisk because of several lifestyle choices. I learned that I needed to make some changes in my diet, exercise more and reduce my stress level. The health risk assessment made me realize I needed to make changes in my life. Ultimately, we can reduce the effects of disease through early detection and prevention, said Dr. Bruce Flareau, president BayCare Physician Partners. The assessment is a simple tool that evaluates a persons risk of developing a disease and more importantly how to reduce those risks. After answering some basic questions, the test will give you a results page providing health recommendations, Flareau said. For most people, the types of things that are suggested are simple lifestyle changes, adjustments in diet or developing a better exercise routine. If needed, you can be directed to a physician for further follow up. Today, Guido has improved his health by applying the assessment recommendations to his daily routine. I have lost weight, walk more and eat better, Guido said. I have also tried to reduce the level of stress in my life. I would advise anyone else who has concerns about health issues to take any of the health risk assessments. I highly recommend it. BayCare Health System offers a total of 13 assessments including: Cancer Breast Cancer Colon Cancer Lung Cancer Prostate Diabetes Heart Joint Lung Sleep Stroke Spine Vascular Weight Individuals interested in managing their health risks can visit YourHealthRisk.org.

The Molokai-2-Oahu Paddleboard World Championship is recognized as one of the worlds most challenging tests for endurance and courage. Covering 32 miles of open ocean, over 250 competitors will cross the Kaiwi Channel from the North Shore of Molokai to the south shore of Oahu, under their own power on prone paddleboards or stand-up paddleboards. The fastest athletes complete the crossing in just under five hours, facing treacherous currents, powerful swells and a depth of nearly one kilometer. Paddlers can ride swells for hundreds of yards. Competitors can choose to race as a solo paddler or as part of a team in either the unlimited class (no size limit and with a movable rudder system) or stock class (12 feet or under for paddleboard, 14 feet or under in SUP with fixed rudder).Photo courtesy of PATRICK KLEMAWESCHFrom left, Shane White, Christian Cook, Dana Hart, and Patrick Klemawesch celebrate after completing the 2011 Molokai-2Oahu race.Sports roundup Tides WGA resultsSEMINOLE Results of the Tides Womens Golf Associations event July 10 at the Tides Golf Club: First place Dolly Wicht, 32.

One of the best musicals of the 20th century, Rodgers and Hammersteins Carousel features favorite songs such as June is Bustin Out All Over, Youll Never Walk Alone and If I Loved You. Carousel is a remarkable journey through love, honor and redemption. In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there. Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her fathers reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. The production is directed by Jamie Bierchen and features Marissa Jo Kraus, Adam Willard, Joell Ramsdell, Brianna Lynn Filippelli, and Madison Kosloski.

This iconic duo has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and helped define the soundtrack of the s with hits including F.M., Bodhisattva, Reelin in the Years, Rikki Dont Lose That Number, Deacon Blues, Peg, Babylon Sisters and Hey Nineteen. Scaggs returns to the Ruth Eckerd Hall stage for the first time since his sold-out concert with Marc Cohn in 2010.

His hit songs What a Fool Believes, Takin It to the Streets and Sweet Freedom have contributed to American pop music for more than three decades.Ice Age theme is just getting old Photos courtesy of BLUE SKY STUDIOSScrat (Chris Wedge) continues his nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which hes been after since the dawn of time, in Ice Age: Continental Drift. terest for Diego in the form of sabre-toothed cat Shira (Jennifer Lopez). Thats a lot of interwoven story threads for kids to assimilate. In most cases, the background stories dont really do anything to propel the main plot. In the case of the pirates, the script exploits needless malevolence instead of focusing on the heroes struggle with the uncontrollable forces of nature. Movies dont always need a villain they just need conflict. The films core characters remain as likeable as they have always been, but their personalities have become static: Manny is the doting father figure, Sid the chatty-but-sweet buffoon and Diego the cynical but sympathetic tamed savage. Other returning characters have similar appeal, but there is no risk-taking here in terms of character development. And as jumbled as it is, the films script doesnt take chances either. No surprises, no plot twists just a predictable, albeit long-winded, journey toward a conventional conclusion. Of course, kids wont notice most of these imperfections. They will watch Ice Age: Continental Drift gleefully, a perfect summertime escape. Diego (Denis Leary), left, finds a potential love interest in Shira (Jennifer Lopez) in Ice Age: Continental Drift.

There is too much story crammed into this family-friendly film populated by too many characters and too many clichs from previous franchise installments. There is far too little charisma and variation on the original theme. Of course, this is from an adults perspective and all that could be forgiven if the film appealed to its target audience. Even children sense a problem, though: This franchise is getting as old as the fossilized remains of the various extinct beasts it depicts. Prior to the new film, the most recent outing 2009s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs suffered from the same failing: then, like now, the filmmakers did not offer any new thematic material. However, that film did offer a solid storyline as well as an engaging new character in the form of Buckminster (voiced by Simon Pegg), a swashbuckling oneeyed weasel. Ice Age: Continental Drift isnt without new characters. In fact, the film introduces so many new characters its difficult to keep track of them all. Few seem particularly necessary and only one is fully developed: cantankerous Granny, (voiced by Wanda Sykes) proves to be the silver lining in an otherwise drab, gray cloud. The underpinning of Ice Age: Continental Drift isnt even all that solid. Scrat the wacky saber-toothed squirrel whose obsession with collecting acorns has been a slapstick component of the franchise from the beginning accidentally triggers a continental cataclysm. As shifting tectonic plates reshape the landscape, mammoth Manny (Ray Romano), sabre-toothed tiger Diego (Denis Leary) and sloth Sid (John Leguizamo) are separated from their friends and family when they are swept out to sea on an iceberg. They must fight to make their way back home in time to save their loved ones. If that doesnt seem far-fetched, throw in ragtag band of miscreant pirates led by Captain Gutt (Peter Dinklage), an orangutan. Once again, in order to spark a new storyline, the writers had to invent a situation in which the main characters are separated. While showcasing the significance of the extended family concept is important to the franchise, it seems awfully forced this time around. In addition to the pirate set-up, subplots include a bit on teenage rebelliousness featuring Peaches (Keke Palmer), the daughter of Manny and Ellie (Queen Latifah); Sid and Grannys relationship; and a love inReel TimeLee Clark Zumpe

Aguilar and his crew will perform Friday and Saturday, July 20-21, at the Original Boardwalk Grill and Sports Bar, 126 Island Way, in the Island Estates Plaza on Clearwater Beach. In addition to Aguilar, the show will feature Joe Lala, percussionist for Crosby, Stills and Nash; Kevin Hurley, guitarist for Santana; and Charlie DeChant, saxophonist for Hall and Oates. The music will start sometime after 9 p.m. and there is no cover charge. The event is the result of a chance meeting a few years ago. I was down recording a record with Marty Balin, Aguilar said in a phone interview. I went into a bar across from where I was staying on Island Estates and met this guy. The two struck up a conversation, discussing music as well the Tampa Bay area. A year and a half later, I came back and he owns the bar. By the time Aguilar had returned, the Original Boardwalk Grill and Sports Bar had been completely renovated. The establishment features Coney Island Boardwalk wood, vibrant colors, and photos of boardwalks across the country, according to its website. I said to him, you should let me bring in my band. Aguilar said. He said, lets go. A few phone calls later, Aguilar had pieced together a group of legendary rock industry musicians. I got all these world class players together, Aguilar said. Well rock the beaches. And theres a possibility that this kind of show may become a recurring event at the venue. I want it to be, Aguilar said. Were trying to keep it going.Aguilar and friendsBest known for his work with Jefferson Starship, Slick Aguilar has worked with a wide range of notable musicians. Through much of the 1970s, he was an in-house guitar player for TK Studios in North Miami. During that period, he recorded with KC and the Sunshine Band, Bobby Caldwell, Latimore, George and Gwenn McRae, Clarence Reid, Timmy Thomas and Betty Wright. After relocating to the West Coast, Aguilar joined Buddy Miles band. In 1982, he toured with David Crosby. A few years later, Marty Balin invited him to join his band, which in turn led to Aguilar taking on the role of lead guitarist in the KBC Band, which also featured former Jefferson Airplane members Paul Kantner and Jack Casady. The KBC Bands self-titled debut included the hit America. The KBC Band broke up after touring from 198587. In 1992, Kantner, Aguilar, Casady, Tim Gorman, Papa John Creach, Prairie Prince and Darby Gould established the next generation of Jefferson Starship. The lineup has changed over the years, but the core members of this incarnation of Jefferson Starship continues to tour and record. The bands most recent release, Jeffersons Tree of Liberty, came out in 2008. Joe Lala grew up in Ybor City. Though he always intended to be a musician, he got a barbers license in case things didnt work out. In 1966, straight out of high school, Lala had a hand in the formation of Blues Image. After playing Tampa nightclubs for a few years, the band recorded their million-selling hit Ride Captain Ride in 1970. Needless to say, Lala hasnt cut anyones hair since then. After leaving Blues Image, Lala worked with a number of other artists and groups including Stephen Stills Manassas, The Eagles, The Bee Gees, Jackson Browne, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Barbara Streisand, John Cougar Mellencamp, Eric Clapton, Dr. John and Herbie Hancock. Over the years, Lala has accumulated 32 Gold records, and 28 Platinum records during his music career. He played on the movie soundtracks of Saturday Night Fever, Staying Alive, D.C. Cab, Streets of Fire. All The Right Moves, Breathless, Defiance, The Lonely Guy, and Airplane. While carpal tunnel syndrome has curtailed his musical endeavors, Lala still plays on occasion. Following the diagnosis, he embarked on a new career path as an actor and voiceover specialist. His film and television credits include appearances in Sugar Hill, On Deadly Ground, Havana, Miami Vice, General Hospital, Melrose Place, and Whos The Boss? Ali. Lala resides in the Tampa Bay area. Kevin Hurley was born in Miami, grew up in California and returned to South Florida in his teens. While still in Palo Alto, near San Francisco, he took his first music lessons at age 11. His instructor was the soon-to-be-famous Jerry Garcia, folk and bluegrass musician and member of the Grateful Dead. Hurley started playing with a country and bluegrass outfit called Spooner Summit featuring Oz Bach. During his time with this band, Hurley honed his craft on acoustic guitar. He next performed with Nitehawk, playing all the well-known dives in Miami and the Florida Keys according to his biography. Not long after this, Hurley met Aguilar. The fast friends formed the band Tattoo, performing at hot spots in Miami and Key Biscayne. A second incarnation paired the two: The Slick Hurley Band recorded the CD Brothers by Other Mothers, a fusion of Southern rock and R&B. More recently, Hurley formed his own band, The Conch-A-Delics. Cuts from their CD Palm Tree Reality have received radio airplay in the Miami area and on Jimmy Buffetts Margaritaville Internet radio station. Charlie DeChant plays saxophone and keyboards for Hall & Oates.

Pictures and Legendary Pictures The Dark Knight Rises is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolans Dark Knight trilogy. It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters. BeatsGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Paz de la Huerta, Lee Pace, Justin Kirk, Thomas Sadoski, Jennifer Tilly, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Jason Day, Vahina Giocante, Ben Levin and Condola Rashad Director: Alexis Lloyd Rated: R Written, produced and directed by Alexis Lloyd, the film is a lighthearted exploration of seduction, spontaneity and self-discovery thats as sultry and vibrant as the city it is set in. When the doe-eyed Julie (Condola Rashad) seeks out worldly anthropologist Adam (Justin Kirk) in a determined effort to lose her virginity, the stage is set for a delightful dive into a world of sensual singlehood in New York City. The encounter triggers a chain reaction that connects 10 city-dwellers over a period of three sweltering days. After deflowering Julie, an out-of-sorts Adam looks up seductive psychic Erika (Jennifer Tilly), who in turn frolics with bike messenger Diego (Jason Day), who later declares his love for the scarred beauty Laura (Paz de la Huerta), who subsequently tries to seduce her chiropractor Matt (Lee Pace). The shifting locations, professions and emotions paint a multifaceted picture of passionate and often unrequited love in the city. Matts lust for switchboard operator Kim (Vahina Giocante) is complicated by a lesbian fling, which also indirectly complicates Kims interest in speechwriter Julian (Thomas Sadoski), who in turn is enthralled by Alice (Ingeborga Dapkunaite), a call girl on the verge of a career change. Taking on one last job, Alice pays off a debt by dutifully seducing the virgin Sean (Ben Levin), who it turns out is the best friend of Julie the virgin whose first encounter opens the film. The tryst brings the round of randomseeming encounters full-circle as Sean and Julie debate the risks and rewards of introducing sex into their platonic relationship. Will they or wont they? Its just another thrum of the citys heartbeat of love.Hara-Kiri: Death of a SamuraiGenre: Drama Cast: Ebizo Ichikawa, Eita, Hikari Mitsushima, Naoto Takenaka, Munetaka Aoki, Takashi Sasano, Baijaku Nakamura and Koji Yakusho Director: Takashi Miike Not rated From visionary auteur Takashi Miike comes the story of a mysterious samurai who arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming. With stunning cinematography and gripping performances, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is a thrilling exploration of revenge, honor and individuality in the face of oppressive power.The Queen of VersaillesGenre: Documentary Cast: Jackie Siegel and David Siegel Director: Lauren Greenfield Rated: PG The Queen of Versailles is a character-driven documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis. With epic proportions of Shakespearean tragedy, the film follows two unique characters, whose rags-to-riches success stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream. The film begins with the family triumphantly constructing the biggest house in America, a 90,000-square-foot palace. Over the next two years, their sprawling empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis. Major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the crosscultural household of family members and domestic staff.

Carousel is a remarkable journey through love, honor and redemption. In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there. Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her fathers reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. The production is directed by Jamie Bierchen and features Marissa Jo Kraus, Adam Willard, Joell Ramsdell, Brianna Lynn Filippelli, and Madison Kosloski.Pinellas Park Movies in the Park Saturday, July 28, dusk, at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

The exhibit explores how photography was used in the development and propagation of communism. It also raises larger questions surrounding the perception and interpretation of photographs, which are often viewed as strictly representing reality. Artists in the early days of Soviet rule redefined their role in society. No longer creators of paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the elite, many artists embraced photography as an art for the masses. They advanced the cause of the October Revolution of 1917 by experimenting with avant-garde processes and points of view. Photographers represented include Alexander Ustinov, Max Alpert, Emanuel Evzerikhin, and Georgi Zelma, among others. The photographs in this exhibition are selections from recent donations by Howard Schickler and Janice Tuckwood of more than 200 Soviet photographs. These images, the first of their kind to enter the collection, illuminate history and explore the manifold uses of photography. Museum hours are Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $17 for adults, $15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students 7 and older, including college students with current identification.

New playground set for Honeymoon Island, interpretive center at Caladesi Island By TOM GERMONDDUNEDIN The Friends of the Island Parks are taking on big projects, including a playground that is expected to be completed in the next few months at Honeymoon Island and an interpretative center for Caladesi Island The $120,000 limitless playground will be built with funds raised by the Friends, a volunteer organization, Park Manager Peter Krulder said. The playground, which will be ADA accessible, will have climbing walls and typical swings. It will have two covered benches, one on each side of the playground, providing shade for people, such as the many grandparents who bring kids to the park. The Friends have been working on the playground plans for a couple of years. The committee visited many playgrounds in Pinellas County and interviewed parents, children and others, said Diane Hood, who is chairperson for the playground project, and sought ideas from other city recreation departments. We call it a limitless playground, she said. This would be geared for children ages 2 through 12 and provide them with an inclusive playing environment for children of all abilities. With grandparents down here and lots of retired people in the area, we want to make it easier for them to have access to the playground also. The current playground is more than 10 years old and was due to be replaced. Park staff was spending a lot of time repairing equipment, which was showing signs of corrosion and wear and tear. When I went to the Friends and told them I would like to see that as a project, they really embraced it and went whole hog. They figured if they were going to do this, they were going to put a first-class playground in this, Krulder said. The Love Fore Charity golf tournament held in March at the Countryside Country Club benefited Friends of the Island Parks; $45,000 was raised. The rest of the money for the project came from other fundraising events, such as the annual Island Earth Days at the park. The club is also seeking grants. We just are placing the order for the equipment this week, Krulder said. We are looking to have it done by the end of August or early September if everything goes well. Plans call for the $500,000 Caladesi Discovery Center to be built in the footprint of an old fire tower on Caladesi Island that was torn down in the 1980. It will be about 25 feet off the ground and be ADA accessible through an elevator. The timetable for the project is uncertain at this point. Through exhibits and other means, visitors to the center would learn about the history of the islands, habitat, and beach geology how the island has changed. I think it will be wonderful for people in the area to learn about the history of the barrier island and to just get a better appreciation of nature out on these islands, Hood said. Hood said as chairperson of the playground committee, her goal was to have the playground built before fund raising was launched for the interpretative center. Last year, Krulder said, volunteers provided 28,000 volunteer hours at Honeymoon Island, many of those hours were provided by Friends of the Island Parks through labor and events. The organization has more than 275 members. They are great. We couldnt get by without them, Krulder said.
