The proposed tax rate for the upcoming fiscal year is 5.5862 mills, or about $5.59 for every $1,000 in taxable property value.

Synthetic drugs: the dangers, the risks, the dilemma Editors note: This is the first segment in a series about the war on synthetic drugs in Pinellas County. The series continues next week. By SUZETTE PORTERThree years ago, it was prescription drugs. Today, local officials are on the front lines of an emerging new war. This time the enemy is synthetic drugs, commonly marketed as bath salts and herbal incense or potpourri. The names sound innocent enough, but these products sold under brand names such as K2, Spice and Ivory White, are as dangerous as the street drugs theyre designed to mimic, officials say. Product labels warn that theyre not for human consumption, but people are using them anyway to get a legal high. Paul Melton, an investigator for Pinellas Countys Justice and Consumer Services Department, is concerned about the many nuances involved in what could be the next epidemic menacing local communities. Hes most worried about the youth, who are taking drugs made from unknown compounds at a time when their brains are still developing. According to the Office of Adolescent Health, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, one in nine high school seniors reported using synthetic marijuana in the past year, making it one of the most frequently mentioned, second only to marijuana. Poison Control tells us that calls are increasing and over half of them are youth-oriented calls, Melton said during a recent interview with Tampa Bay Newspapers. Two basic types of synthetics drugs are currently on the radar. One is bath salts or designer cathinones, which are stimulants, advertised as synthetic speed or See SYNTHETIC, page 3AThis chart from the American Association of Poison Control Center on synthetic marijuana data from Nov. 3, 2011 shows an alarming increase of calls coming in throughout the United States. A similar trend is reported by Florida Poison Information Centers. Photos by JACK ROWLANDThis 2012 Mini Cooper Baker Street Limited Edition will be given away in a raffle Saturday, Oct. 6 during the Seminole High Sch ool bands annual Seminole Sound Spectacular event at the SHS football stadium.Not your average raffleSHS band boosters hope Mini giveaway turns major results The cars interior features cloth and leather seats, a leather steering wheel and special Baker Street lettering around a chrome line interior package. By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE A passing conversation between a member of the Seminole High School band boosters and a former SHS drum major has resulted in what could be the largest fundraiser for the bands trip to the 2013 Tournament of Roses Parade. Roger Fox, an investment counselor who doubles as corporate sponsorship chair for the boosters, and Jack Rowland, a 1980 SHS graduate who was drum major his senior year, brainstormed an effort to organize a raffle for a 2012 Mini Cooper Baker Street Limited Edition that will be given away Saturday, Oct. 6 during the bands annual Seminole Sound Spectacular event at the SHS football stadium. If successful in selling all 4,000 of the $25 tickets, the effort will result in a net profit of about $74,000 for the boosters. All funds will be used to help defray the cost of sending the Warhawk Marching Band to the Rose Parade Jan. 1 in Pasadena, Calif. With 120 to 130 students making the trip at a cost of about $2,000 each, the need to raise a large sum is important. I came up with the idea, said Fox. I was kind of thinking out loud and discussed it with (band director) Chip Wood. I said we just raised a large amount to go to the Macys (Thanksgiving Day Parade, November 2010) and people in the community may not be able to help fund this with such a quick turnaround. I said we need to think bigger. Fox said something exciting was needed and Wood gave him the green light to move ahead. I first tried to approach Honda because theyre the sponsors of the Rose Parade, but they couldnt do it, said Fox. I talked to a few other auto dealerships and nothing worked out. Rowland, a former photographer and photo director for the Tampa Bay Times, had recently joined the sales team at Mini of Wesley Chapel. I mentioned the (the car raffle concept) to Jack and then, jokingly a few weeks later I asked him hows that new car coming along? Rowland took the passing comment to heart and approached his boss, Malcolm Cheek, the general manager of the Wesley See RAFFLE, page 4AMail ballots rolling in By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER As of Saturday, Aug. 4, just over 26 percent of the 245,297 mail ballots sent out had been received at the Supervisor of Elections Office, and 188 ballots were cast on the first day of early voting. Early voting continues through Aug. 11 at all three Elections offices from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. According to Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark, state law changed the dates for early voting, which now begins 10 days prior to an election and ends three days before election day. The law affects all but five Florida counties, which are bound by a U.S. Department of Justice pre-clearance order. Those counties cannot implement the new law until it is precleared by a federal court, Clark said. Supervisor of Elections Offices are located in: County Courthouse, Room 117, 315 Court St., Clearwater Starkey Lakes Corporate Center, 13001 Starkey Road, Largo County Building, 501 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Offices hours are MondayFriday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the following exceptions: Aug. 4-11: Saturday-Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 12: Sunday, closed Aug. 13: Monday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 14: Tuesday, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.Mail ballotsRegistered voters may still pick up mail ballots at any of the three Elections offices.

Largo, FL 33774727-596-9156072612Matt Facarazzo, D.V.M.with this ad NEW LOCATION Around Pinellas Clearwater approves tighter restrictions on homelessCLEARWATER Plagued by a chronic homeless problem that was interfering with the tourism industry that is the lifeblood of Clearwaters economy, city officials spent $25,000 to hire Dr. Robert Marbut, a consultant who founded a homeless shelter in Texas, to come up with a solution. Marbut advocated a get-tough approach. Marbut had Assistant City Attorney Rob Surette draft three proposed ordinances that were designed to alleviate the homeless problem in the Clearwater Beach tourist district, the downtown core and the East Gateway corridor. One would make panhandling in traffic an offense punishable by up to 60 days in jail, instead of the fine that is currently the maximum penalty. Another would prohibit sitting or lying on sidewalks and other public rights-of-way between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. with certain specified exceptions, such as sitting on a park bench or in a wheelchair. Surette stressed that the right-of-way ordinance is intended to promote public safety, not to harass the homeless. There is no intent to arrest somebody, he said. Thats the last alternative an officer has. The third proposed ordinance would prohibit lodging out-of-doors in a tent, sleeping bag, cardboard box or other temporary shelter. Surette said that the primary objectives of this ordinance is to protect the homeless, some of whom have been robbed in their sleep, as well as to alleviate the danger of someone tripping over a vagrant sleeping on the sidewalk. First-time offenders would be offered a ride to a homeless shelter or, if they declined that offer, told to move along. Either way, their name would be entered in a police database so repeat offenders could be identified. Second offenders would be driven to a homeless shelter and their belongings that were too bulky to take along would be stored in police headquarters for up to 60 days at no cost. Second offenders who refuse to go to a shelter would be subject to arrest, as would those with three or more offenses. Reaction from members of the public who spoke at the July 19 City Council meeting was mixed. A downtown businessman said that the homeless in the Station Square area are driving away potential real estate investors. But the president of a nearby neighborhood association feared that if the homeless are run out of downtown, they will move into the city parks in adjacent neighborhoods. A Methodist pastor said that the homeless problem isnt nearly as bad as city officials make it out to be and urged compassion for the homeless. A woman who now has a job and owns her own home said that three years ago, she and her 15-year-old son were homeless on the steps of that pastors church until the pastor found them space in a homeless shelter. She said that dealing with the homeless is a job for the social service agencies, not the police. An elderly Puerto Rican immigrant couple agreed, saying the proposed ordinances are unjust and not Christian. James McMannus, who has been homeless for three years and does day labor for $7 an hour said that he agreed with the proposed bans on panhandling in traffic and sitting or lying on public sidewalks. But he said that he and others like him must sleep downtown because they have to be at the labor pool by 5 a.m. if they want to work that day, and there are no buses that run from Safe Harbor or other homeless shelters to downtown at that hour of the morning. I must sleep somewhere, McMannus said. Safe Harbor is a wonderful place but its not for me because I work day labor. I dont want to break a law. I dont want to be someones problem. Vice Mayor Paul Gibson empathized with McMannus and asked Councilmember Bill Jonson, who serves on the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority board, to see if an early-morning bus could be arranged from the area of Safe Harbor to downtown Clearwater to help people like McMannus. What hes doing is exactly what we want him to do, Gibson said of McMannus. And if we have a process that is precluding him from doing that, we need to fix the process. In the end, all three ordinances passed by a unanimous vote. Lester DaileyIRB to explore adding community policing deputyINDIAN ROCKS BEACH The city of Indian Rocks Beach could soon be introducing a new community policing deputy if the city commission decides the $89,000 price tag is worth it. A community policing deputy is different than a regular patrol deputy in that he or she will have time to get involved in community activities and will have time to find out specific needs and complaints and deal with them. In recent months some residents have complained to the commission about the way they are treated by regular patrol deputies. To some, the introduction of a community-policing deputy will help solve those issues. Commissioner Phil Hanna believes as much. He said time is a factor with the deputies trying to do regular patrol work. They are out there keeping us safe and making sure we are getting adequate police protection. But we desperately need a community officer too, someone who will bring another type of police work to our city, he said. The job of the community-policing deputy will be more than that, according to Mayor R.B. Johnson. Weve had some issues from time to time and this type of officer could help with those issues, he said. A community officer would have a good knowledge and depth about the city, its quirks and neighborhood patterns. The regular patrol officers have their duties; the community officer would have more time to focus. The city of Seminole has had a community-policing deputy for several years and the administration is pleased with it. Harry Kyne, the director of administration in Seminole, says the position is a valuable one. It is very much working out, he said. The officer coordinates Neighborhood Watch groups, he rides his bike around our commercial neighborhood and visits store owners and hears about their needs. He also is very active in special events and is always there when something extra is going on in town. And if extra help is needed he is able to get other community officers from nearby communities to come and help. It is that aspect of community policing that interests Mayor Johnson. The officer can patrol on foot or ride a bike, and can be very flexible, he said. That part has always been attractive to me. There is also a practical side of having a community-policing deputy in the city. It will add a full time deputy to the community. City Manager Chuck Coward sees it as an added bonus to everyday policing. It will mean that we will have two full-time deputies on duty during the daytime hours, seven days a week now, he said. Right now we have two deputies patrolling the town on the evening shift and two more on the all night shift. But during the daytime there are two days when weve only got one deputy on duty. The community policing officer will mean well have full coverage 24/7 all year round. Coward says the officer has been described as the missing link between straight patrol work and community activities. Both Johnson and Coward feel the upcoming budget can handle the extra $89,000 the community officer would cost. Johnson says it is worth the investment to see if it will work in IRB. It isnt as though were signing on for 10 years with no way out, he said. We can try it for a year and assess it and if the job gets done and everybody is happy then we can find a way to make it work. Hanna put his own definition on the community-policing concept. I call the regular patrol deputies the sharp-edgers, he said. They dont have time to be touchy-feely when they are dealing with day to day investigations. The community officer will be the soft-edge person. We all need some tender care from time to time. Brian GoffPinellas Park tax rate could increasePINELLAS PARK The Pinellas Park City Council agreed to set the city tax rate about 3 percent higher this year, allowing the city to collect a similar amount in property tax revenue despite a 1.9 percent decrease in citywide property value. The proposed tax rate for the upcoming fiscal year is 5.5862 mills, or about $5.59 for every $1,000 in taxable property value. Council decided to tentatively increase the current rate of 5.4269 mills at the recommendation of staff and the citizens budget advisory committee during a workshop July 24. The final decision on the budget and tax rate depends on the councils vote during upcoming public hearings on Thursdays, Sept. 9 and 23. The hearings will allow Pinellas Park residents and business owners to voice their opinion on the proposed budget and tax rate. The increase, called a rollback rate, is calculated so that the city collects the same amount of property tax revenue, irregardless of citywide loss in property value. However, because the rollback rate doesnt include taxable values for new construction and new annexations, the city will actually collect slightly more in property tax revenue compared to this years budgeted revenue. The city budgeted $13,260,964 in property tax revenue for the general fund, only about $25,000 more than last year. Councilman Ed Taylor asked if the tax rate increase would end up costing some taxpayers a little bit more. Budget administrator Dan Katsiyiannis explained that by nature of the rollback design, most residents wouldnt notice a difference from last year. And if it did cost them anything, because there are obviously a lot of different situations and scenarios that can take place, the amount of the cost would be nominal, he said. Ten bucks, Taylor suggested. Less than that, Katsiyiannis countered. Katsiyiannis also reminded council that while they could decide to decrease the tax rate, they could not increase it past the tentative rate. Even with the tax rate increase, the city is budgeted to use about $1.5 million from its general fund reserves this year. The remaining reserves still will represent 27 percent of the general fund budget, well above the recommended percentage. The budget also includes an increase in monthly stormwater fees. The city has been running a deficit, collecting about $600,000 from fees, but spending $1.2 million to maintain stormwater services in the city, according to budget documentation. Under the proposed budget, residents in single family homes would pay $4 a month instead of $2, while residents behind a master meter would pay $2 instead of $1 a month. The increases also address the disparity in the fees structure between residential and commercial and industrial properties, which already pay $4 a month. The stormwater, that is significant. I dont know any way around it, Taylor said, anticipating a public outcry to the increase. Everybody needs a little more right now. With a soft hiring freeze still in effect, as it has been since early 2007, the city made several changes to personnel, including the restructuring of the human resources department and four divisions within public works. The changes amounted to an overall decrease of one full-time position, which will save the city about $100,000 annually, according to budget documentation. Further reductions in operating expenditures are not achievable without eliminating some major programs, Katsiyiannis said. Juliana A. Torres

The second is synthetic cannabinoids, a large family of chemicals similar to THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, which are supposed to be relaxing and provide a calming effect. People are being lulled into a false sense of safety thinking these new alternatives are OK to use because they are readily available, unlike their illegal counterparts. But these drugs are very dangerous, Melton said. No one knows whats in them and the composition can vary with each batch since there are no quality controls in the manufacturing process. For example, he recently talked to a mother of a woman addicted to synthetic marijuana. Her daughter, who has a 3-year-old daughter of her own, is now making the drug. Melton explains that the manufacturing process involves mixing chemical compounds together and then spraying them on vegetative materials to look like marijuana weed. Melton got involved when he was told that the daughter was crushing up Xanax pills and putting them in her mix. Meltons job for Justice and Consumer Services is regulation of clinics that write a high number of prescriptions for certain classes of pharmaceuticals, mostly pain medications. He is also highly involved in programs that educate and try to prevent drug problems. Xanax is one of the regulated drugs. He started looking deeper into the problem and found an alarming increase in the number of people calling the state poison control centers in relation to synthetic cathinones, bath salts, and in particular, synthetic cannabinoids, herbal incense. In 2010, poison control centers received 252 calls regarding synthetic marijuana. Sixteen callers were from Pinellas. By 2011, the statewide number had grown to 501 with 44 callers from Pinellas. For the first five months of 2012, calls from around the state totaled 249 with 25 from Pinellas. The numbers are smaller for bath salts, but the trend is the same with a leap from 21 calls statewide in 2010 to 154 in 2011. The number doubled in Pinellas going from three in 2010 to six in 2011. Through May of 2012, 39 calls had been received statewide and two from Pinellas. Its a pattern of increase, Melton said, while pointing out that the numbers do not include visits to emergency rooms, reSYNTHETIC, from page 1ASynthetic drugs, bath salts, herbal incense and potpourri, are professionally packaged under a variety of brand names. Officials say the packaging makes people believe theyre safe to use.ports to substance abuse counselors or private doctors. Dr. Cynthia R. Lewis-Younger, managing and medical director for Florida Poison Information Center in Tampa, agrees that over the last two years, the use of synthetic cathinones, bath salts, and synthetic marijuana, K2 and Spice, have risen in frequency. I think that is because of an innovation in the way that distributors are seeking to provide people with psychoactive substances, she said. They look for substances that are not controlled and package them as not for human consumption. They essentially are attempting to stay one step ahead of law enforcement. She also agreed that the numbers coming from the poison information center are an underestimate of the true problem. Physicians are not required to report cases to the poison centers, and users whose effects are not recognized are also not reported, she said. Users will not report to us when they are not concerned about the effects they feel. The numbers we have are only those severe enough to be reported to the poison centers usually because they need emergency and/or critical care.Illegal or notSynthetic substances are illegal in the state of Florida. Gov. Rick Scott signed a law on March 23, expanding the ban on synthetic drugs and placing more than 90 chemicals contained in bath salts and synthetic marijuana on the list of Schedule I drugs, making possession, sale and/or distribution a felony charge. While the law is good, people making the drugs are changing the chemicals as fast as theyre banned, Melton said. Products have to be tested to find out if they contain a chemical on the ban list. If the lab cant match the chemical in the product, law enforcement cant make a case. Melton admits it is frustrating because it is easier for the manufacturers to get a new chemical than it is to get a law amended to add to the ban list. The solution may be in a new law Melton and other concerned officials are working on that would become more of a living document, so changes to the ban list could be made as soon as new compounds are identified. Despite state law, synthetic drugs can be purchased readily at local convenience stores, smoke shops and online. They come from China and India, as well as local manufacturers. Melton said businesses buy from local suppliers who show up and offer the product for sale. No one knows whats in it, except maybe the manufacturers, and theres no guarantee that the product under the same label will be the same from day to day. Chemicals imported into the United States are often mislabeled to avoid detection. Targeting youthMelton said an even bigger problem is the population that suppliers most-often target the youth. Melton talked to a convenience store owner in Clearwater who sells the products. The storeowner reported that of his 60 customers a week, about half were kids from a nearby school. Melton said some storeowners dont think theyre doing anything wrong. They say theyre not to blame for people using the product for purposes other than what is stated on the packaging. But, because the products are sold in local convenience stores, people seem to think theyre OK to use, said Marvin Coleman, vice president of Community and Business Relations at Operation Par. And the younger the client, the worse the perspective, Coleman said. The packaging is so sophisticated. They use cartoon characters, which gives the false illusion that these companies are co-signing off on it. Everyone assumes they are safe, but they dont know whats put in it, he said. Synthetic drugs are marketed under a variety of colorful street names. Bath salts can be found labeled as Ivory White, Vanilla Sky, Pure Ivory, Whack, Bolivian Bath, Sextacy, Gloom, Purple Rain, Hurricane Charlie, Fly, Purple Wave, Charge+, Ocean Burst, Crush and White Rush. Popular names for synthetic marijuana include K2, Spice Silver, Spice Gold, Mr. Nice Guy, Yucatan Fire, Red Nugz, Smoke, Genie, Blue Majik, Puff, Ninja, Dark Night and King Krypto. Packaging is one way Melton hopes to combat the problem. Oftentimes packaging mimics copyrighted materials with some using the likeness of Scooby Doo or celebrities, such as Demi Moore or Charlie Sheen. Melton said he reported the problem to Demi Moores agent. Letters are also being sent to parent companies of the convenience stores, such as the gas supplier or franchiser, to inform them of the problem.Laws and educationPinellas County law enforcement can use current paraphernalia laws in the fight against synthetics. Melton said the drugs are often displayed next to the pipes or other smoke accessories at local stores. Largo and Pinellas Park have been aggressive with their enforcement, using the paraphernalia law, he said. Deputies recently delivered a signed notice from Sheriff Bob Gualtieri to 190 independently owned convenience stores in July recommending compliance with a state law that bans the possession and sale of those chemicals found in synthetic marijuana. Narcotics Sgt. Dan Zsido said Aug. 3 that the letter was helping. While law enforcement continues to fight the problem, stronger laws that are more flexible are needed on a local, state and federal level, Melton said. Pinellas County Commissioners passed an amendment to the existing paraphernalia ordinance Aug. 7 requiring stores that sell those items to post a warning in an effort to educate parents. While folks seem to know where to go to get their pipes, etc., we are finding that parents are not as aware of the ease of access to these products, Melton said. The warnings are one of several steps moving forward including a broader education campaign for parents. Commissioners continued consideration of advertisement of public hearing on a new ordinance on substances of significant concern. Melton said the ordinance would provide for bath salts and synthetic marijuana and other DEA listed chemicals of concern that have emerged recently in Pinellas. He said education and awareness are important to getting a handle on the problem. Collaboration among community partners is paramount. Government and law enforcement can only do so much, he said. The community has to become involved.Pinellas unemployment rate higher in June By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County unemployment, not seasonally adjusted, climbed to 8.6 percent in June up from 8.2 percent in May, but still well below last years figure of 10.7 percent. The state of Floridas not seasonally adjusted rate also went up from 8.5 percent in May to 9 percent in June, according to figures released July 20 from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The national rate also saw an upward swing going from 7.9 percent to 8.4 percent. Despite the increase, mostly attributed to schools closing down for the summer, Gov. Rick Scott continues to insist that his job strategy is working. In a press release, he pointed to the 9,000 jobs added in June. The Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater metropolitan statistical area continues to lead in the number of over-the-year job gains with the addition of 23,300 jobs, a 2.1 percent growth. The not seasonally adjusted unemployment for the local MSA increased from 8.6 percent in May to 9 percent in June. The local MSA includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
4A SEB Beacon, August 9, 2012 Chapel dealership. Cheek gave his approval and Rowland went to work ordering the car in early June. I decided lets go for one of (three) special editions, said Rowland. I configured the car with special paint and stripes, a leather and cloth interior, upgraded the stereo system and added a keyless entry system that allows you to start the car by pushing one button. As a longtime Mini Cooper enthusiast and the owner of three Minis, Rowland was the perfect person for the job. After assembly began in Oxfordshire, England, the sparkling black and gray vehicle was delivered to the dealership on July 26. The Baker Street edition, named for the address of fictional British detective Sherlock Holmes, features a 121-horsepower engine, a sixspeed automatic transmission, air conditioning, black 16-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, an onboard computer, leather steering wheel, a chrome exterior package, front fog lamps and more. The car also gets good fuel efficiency (28 miles per gallon in the city, 36 mpg highway). Minis are very popular for raffles, said Rowland. Theyre the kind of car that is a fun car to drive and its a car that is still relatively unique. Once Rowland and Fox worked out a deal for the car (the boosters will pay dealer cost), there was the issue of getting the approval of Pinellas County Schools for the boosters to run a raffle. According to the School Board Redbook policy, we thought we had room to work within the guidelines, said Fox. We just couldnt wait for approval. So the boosters approached the Kiwanis Club of Seminole to run the raffle. After some initial discussion, the club agreed to handle the sales of the tickets and open a bank account in the booster clubs name to handle the revenue stream. So far, the results have been very positive, said Dave Kinsey, a past president of the Kiwanis club and liaison to the band boosters. I just put $3,900 in the bank the other day. Were thinking this is going to be a big success. In addition to the drawing for the car, the boosters plan to have drawings for as many asPhoto by JACK ROWLANDSpecial lettering accentuates the Baker Street Limited Edition.seven or eight additional gifts on Oct. 6. So far those items include a diamond pendant valued at $2,800 and a one-week stay at a Cape Cod timeshare. So, in the event you dont win the car, theres the possibility of winning one of these other prizes, Fox said. Should all 4,000 tickets not sell out, Fox said the revenue raised would be used for a 50/50 raffle. The key figure is 2,100 tickets sold. If we have not sold 2,100 by the drawing date, we dont have to pay the dealership for the car, said Fox. The dealership has a hold harmless clause in the agreement and would take the car back, no questions asked. Theyd be able to sell it in a few days. So if we sell 2,000 tickets, we would have a 50/50 based on $50,000, Fox said. In the event 3,000 tickers are sold and $75,000 in revenue is raised, the boosters will still net about $50,000 after the cost of the car. In the meantime, Fox said the car will be on display at some tentative band functions in the area, including a proposed Spirit Night sometime in September at the Cali Shack, 8595 Seminole Blvd. Details on that one are still being worked out. The car also can be seen at the dealership in Wesley Chapel, located at the intersection of State Road 56 and Interstate 75. For information on purchasing a raffle ticket, call 481-5419.

Kmart officials announced in late June that the 86,000-square-foot store, located at 7850 113th St., would be closing Sept. 30. It has upward of 100 fulltime, part-time and temporary employees, according to chamber officials. Chamber president Roger Edelman and board member Dan Berard are putting together the effort. Although the job fair is designed for outgoing Kmart employees, the general public can attend, Berard said. We hope to have a decent group of businesses there, said Edelman. Hopefully, well get 25 businesses, but realistically it will probably be eight to 10. Edelman said he expects Publix and Home Depot, along with mall department stores Bealls, Ross and Stein Mart to participate. Also on hand will be representatives from Worknet Pinellas to help them get better positioned in the market, Berard said. We plan to talk to some of the larger retail operations in the area and expand this to as many businesses as possible, Edelman said. He mentioned Kohls, Target and Sams Club among the targeted retailers. Most of the employees (at Kmart) are long term, 15 years or more, said Berard. Many of them have been out of the job market for a long time and havent had their resume updated in a while. To address that point, the chamber and St. Petersburg College are planning a resume workshop that will be held at the chamber office some time in mid-September. Any other businesses interested in participating in the job fair should contact the chamber at 3923245.Putnam to address energy issuesSEMINOLE Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam will speak on diversifying Floridas energy portfolio at the third and final installment of the Future of Energy series sponsored by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. The forum is Wednesday, Aug. 22, 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Digitorium at the St. Petersburg College Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. It is cosponsored by the Tampa Bay Times, Covanta Energy, Clearwater Gas Systems and Natures Food Patch. Putnams topic, Increasing Diversity in Floridas Energy Portfolio, will focus on progress made in fulfilling a state energy policy goal of securing a stable, reliable and diverse energy supply for the state. He also is expected to discuss issues raised at the Florida Energy Summit, which is scheduled just a week before this forum, in Orlando. As Commissioner of Agriculture, one of Putnams official duties is to foster innovation in energy development. His other responsibilities include providing an adequate and safe food and water supply, managing Floridas forest resources, safeguarding consumers, and of course, promoting Florida agriculture. One measure of progress on the energy policy front is legislation passed in the 2012 session of the Florida Legislature. Putnam has called that legislation a modest step forward toward a smart, long-term energy policy. The bill, in which Putnam took a leadership role in securing passage, garnered bipartisan support from 156 members of the Legislature. Not only will it increase diversity in the states energy portfolio, it also will expand energy production and create much-needed jobs for Floridians, Putnam said. Previous forums in the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions series explored the future of nuclear energy (Part I) and the role of renewables, conservation and energy efficiency (Part II). The series highlights policy in order to help the community understand what is at stake for its energy future. The forum is free, but advance registration is requested at spcollege.edu/solutions.

Commissioners set tenative millage rate for 2013 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners set tentative maximum millage rates for fiscal year 2013 during a July 31 work session. The numbers will be sent to the Property Appraiser to include in Truth in Millage notices scheduled to be mailed to property owners Aug. 20. As the countys taxing authority, Commissioners set a variety of millage rates each year, some countywide and some for special districts. This year, County Administrator Bob LaSala is recommending increases for the countywide general fund and emergency medical services fund. LaSala said raising the general fund millage to 5.0307 should bring in enough money to pay the states Medicaid bill. The current general fund millage rate is 4.8108 mills. According to Bill Berger, interim budget manager, the rate hike would up the property tax bill for the owner of a home with an assessed value of $100,000 an additional $21.99. Commissioners can lower the rate before the final budget is approved on Sept. 18; however, they cannot raise it higher than that advertised in the TRIM notices. The only exception is rates set for the fire districts, which must be sufficient to bring in the revenue amount requested by the district. Commissioners seemed reluctant to begin discussion of millage rates. LaSala said he needed the boards direction so he could pass the information on to the property appraiser. I support the budget as presented, said Commissioner Susan Latvala. If the majority doesnt, we need to talk about it now. LaSala brought up the increase for EMS included in his budget presented to the board in July. The increase to 1.0355 would require unanimous approval. I had a premonition that theres not a unanimous vote to increase EMS, he said, saying if that were true, he would need to know where the money to balance the budget would come from. I had a premonition you would ask me to take it from reserves, he said. Berger said if reserve money were used, it would bring the EMS fund down to $13.8 million, which is 15.2 percent of the whole. By ordinance, the county advocates a 25 percent EMS reserve. After considerable discussion, including an optimistic look toward more affordable EMS services coming in 18 to 24 months, the majority conceded the way to go would be to take some of the money from reserves and make up the difference with a millage increase. TRIM notices will reflect an EMS millage rate of 0.9158, which according to Berger would cost $6.52 for the owner of a home with an assessed value of $100,000. Commissioner Norm Roche said he was against raising taxes and stood firm when it came to EMS. He said he could support an increase to pay the Medicaid bill if the money was set aside for that purpose only and the millage went down as soon as the bill was paid. Commissioner Ken Welch supports the general fund rate, saying theres not much choice; however, he said it was important that the public understand the bill is really coming from Tallahassee. Latvala stood her ground on taking money from reserve funds, prompting comments from Roche about an idea to create a separate catastrophe fund so all reserve funds would no longer be viewed as untouchable. No tax increases are coming for the MSTU (Multiple Services Taxing Unit) or Pinellas County Library Cooperative, which are paid by property owners in unincorporated areas only. Millage rates remain unchanged for the health department, library services, Feather Sound Community Services and the Pinellas Planning Council. A rate increase is proposed for the Palm Harbor Community Services District from 0.4378 to 0.5, upon request by district officials.Fire districtsMillage rate increases are coming for Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo and Safety Harbor fire districts, as follows: Clearwater from 2.6591 to 3.2092; Dunedin from 2.2576 to 3.5525; Largo from 3.5133 to 3.5609; Safety Harbor from 2.6800 to 2.7631. Last minute information allowed commissioners to lower the rate for South Pasadena from 3.1257 to 2.6181. County staff is currently negotiating with the lowest bidder, the city of St. Petersburg, to take over services at a much-reduced cost. Latvala said it might be a good idea to put others out to bid. It says to the community, were not going to take it anymore, she said, adding providing the best service and keeping it affordable was the best thing for the community. Commissioners will continue budget talks through August. The first public hearing is Thursday, Sept. 6, with the second final hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 18. The meetings begin at 6 p.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., in Clearwater.

The department is investigating which students and staff may have been significantly exposed. A second notification will be sent to parents and staff if it is determined they need to be tested for exposure to TB. According to DOH spokesperson Maggie Hall, the students and staff have been notified at the school where the employee worked. Staff and students in contact with the employee will be tested free of charge. At this point, we dont know of any other schools or employees with the same diagnosis, Hall said. For more information about testing locations, call the Health Department at 824-6932. According to the Florida Department of Health, 753 TB cases were reported in Florida in 2011, representing a 10 percent decrease in cases since 2010. There has been a steady decline in the number of TB cases in the state since 1994 (1,764 cases). Fourteen counties account for 80 percent of Floridas TB cases.

PSTAs Route 62 serves the stop. The girls got together to discuss community projects that they could undertake to earn a Bronze Award, said Scout mom Sharon Akers-Tower. The Bronze Award is the highest honor given to Girl Scout Juniors, who are Scouts in fourth or fifth grade. The first step in earning a Bronze Award requires the Scouts to form a team to explore their community and develop ideas for an enhancement project. One of the girls noticed that the bench was broken at this stop, which is close to our meeting venue, said Akers-Tower. She suggested that the team fix and beautify the stop and the others agreed. The team then contacted PSTA Maintenance Manager Kevin Hoyt and asked if he would work with them to improve the stop. Hoyt and his staff were eager to help and quickly provided a new concrete pad and bench. The Scouts then painted the bench in Girl Scout colors, added their troop number 858 and surrounded the stop with decorative flowers and mulch. They did an awesome job and the stop is beautiful, said Hoyt. Theyre a very impressive group of youngsters. The girls lined the stop with numerous butterfly and hummingbird friendly plants and then visited it every day for weeks to water them and make sure they took root. Now, every morning there are butterflies all around the stop, its really amazing, added AkersTower. As she talks with other parents, the Scout team, buzz around the stop adjusting mulch and reciting the names of the plants butterfly bush, honeysuckle, purple passionflower and others. The Scouts and their families had a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the newly refurbished stop on July 25. The crowd cheered as the girls cut a big red bow that had been draped across the front of the stop. The Scouts and their loved ones then enjoyed cups of ice cream as they took turns trying out the new bench and admiring the new landscaping.

Superintendent John Stewart said school districts across the state continue to face financial challenges. Although the school district has received an additional $11.3 million in funding for fiscal year 2012-13, it is still faced with budget reductions, he said. This tentative budget includes a spending reduction in the general fund of approximately $14 million dollars, Stewart said. It is important to keep in mind that some of those proposed reductions are subject to the collective bargaining process. We continue to work with the various represented groups in those negotiations. The board approved a tax rate of 8.30 mills, which is equivalent to $8.30 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. Under that proposed rate, a homeowner whose property has a taxable value of $75,000 would pay about $623 in property taxes to help fund the budget for the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. That same homeowner currently paid about $629 in school taxes for the current fiscal year. The board also approved its $1.2 billion budget for the next fiscal year. A final public hearing on the budget is set for Sept. 11, 7 p.m., at the School Board administration building. Only one speaker addressed the board at the meeting July 31. Sara Smith, library and technology coordinator for Gulfport Elementary School, asked that funding for the middle school library program be restored to a full level. We know that the reduction in the middle school resulted in libraries being closed for as much as 50 percent, and the circulation of books and resources has dropped precipitously, Smith said. She said that as a result many students will go to high school not prepared to do research. In response, Stewart reiterated his initial comments that the budget reflects a $14 million reduction, and school officials are going to talk about how they achieve that before the final budget comes before the board in September. He said several workshops would be held, and information will be brought before the board on how to achieve the reductions. The (Smiths) request is to add something to the budget. Im going to be asking you how to cut $14 million, Stewart said. Following Stewarts remarks, board Chairwoman Robin Wikle said that the boards share of the revenue portion for budget keeps increasing annually as the states portion drops. Its glaring that the last three years, we go from 51 percent of the revenue that comes from our local (taxes), 54 percent and now we are at 57 percent. So we increasingly are asking our community and local taxes to pay for public education while we are taking decision-making away from local control. Its not balanced, Wikle said. Board member Peggy OShea said looking back a few more years the board provided 40 percent of the total funding. Under the state law, once the board sets the millage for notices of proposed property taxes, it can lower the rate but not raise it. As have other local governments, the school district has been trying to cope with a decrease in revenue spurred by declining property values and tax cut measures.

Not so much with Floridas grass lawns. This is the time of year when bugs, disease and nutrient deficiencies can really take their toll on yards and homeowner nerves. Here are a few tips to help your grass survive the weather. If it looks stunted, yellowed, wilted or dead, the culprit may be chinch bugs, which love sucking the juices from St. Augustine grass. If you notice yellowish to burntbrownish patches along sidewalks or in dry areas, part the grass and look for moving insects on plants and in thatch (the dead grass on top of the soil, but under the growing grass). The easiest way to find them is to push a handheld vacuum down into the thatch in several areas, then empty the filter and look for chinch bugs. The adults are about 1/5 inch long, black with white patches on wings, which fold over their back. The young nymphs are easiest to see, as they are reddish-orange with a white band that runs horizontally across the back. If chinch bugs are found, spot treat the damaged area and a 5-foot area surrounding it. Rotate the chemicals used by their chemical class (carbamate, pyrethroid, neonicotinoid and organophosphate) for each life cycle, which is about six weeks. Remember that the pesticide label is federal law so follow it exactly. For in-depth information, go to this University of Florida website: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/lh036 Other things you can do to help control chinch bugs include reducing the amount of water soluble nitrogen fertilizer used; mowing at the highest recommended mowing height; and minimizing thatch buildup. Another possible offender is the tropical sod webworm, which is active in this area from April through November. Damage usually begins with small patches of about one to three inches in diameter after which larger brown patches may form. The grass may look ragged and irregularly-shaped. You also may see small green frass (caterpillar poop) on the ground. The larvae curl up in the soil during the day and come out at night to feed. Newly-hatched larvae chomp away at the grass blades until only veins remain, while older larvae chew on the grass blades near the soil surface. Webworm adults are small tan to gray moths with a wingspan of an inch or so. Look for them at dusk. The moths wont harm your grass, but the eggs they lay will hatch in about a week and then the damage begins. For in-depth information see this publication: http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/in608. Lawn diseases we see during the summer include take-all root rot, pythium root rot, gray leaf spot, and cercospora leaf spot. There are many steps in the disease process and all depend on environmental conditions. Disease control is aimed at altering the environment so it is less favorable for disease development (for example, prolonged leaf wetness promotes disease); suppressing pathogen growth; and decreasing stress on turfgrass. The three steps in lawn disease management are correctly identifying the disease, identifying the conditions that promote disease development, and using management techniques that will alter or reduce these favorable conditions. Management should rely on cultural practices first, with fungicides applied as a last resort. These include selecting the proper grass, mowing at the correct height, watering only when the grass starts to wilt and in the early morning to coincide with dew, using a balanced nitrogen and potassium fertilizer, and reducing thatch and compacted soil. Remember that every maintenance practice has an impact on grass health. Lawns that were fertilized with nitrogen in the spring but begin to yellow in the summer probably need iron. While iron cannot replace other required nutrients, such as nitrogen, it can be an important factor in a fertilizer plan, particularly where soils have a high pH (alkaline). Usually adding iron to the lawn Chinch bugs love sucking the juices from St. Augustine grass. Growing WiseJane Morse will green it up. Apply two ounces of iron sulfate per three to five gallons of water per 1,000 square feet of lawn. The effect only lasts two to four weeks so repeat applications are needed for summer-long color. Mowing correctly is extremely important for lawn health. It is vital to mow at the highest height for your grass species. Most St. Augustine grasses should be mowed at 3.5 to 4 inches high. Never remove more than a third of the leaf blade at any one time. If the lawn is mowed at a 4 inch height, it can get to six inches before mowing). Keep mower blades sharp as dull mowers tear the leaves and make them more prone to insect or disease attack. Only mow the lawn when it is dry. Mowing wet lawns is dangerous for you, tough on the mower and bad for the grass. Summer can bring all kinds of problems to your lawn, but the right fertilization, mowing and watering can greatly improve the health of your lawn. The Pinellas County Extension Service is just a phone call or visit away. If coming in, bring a lawn sample for an easier diagnosis a 1-foot square of the transition zone is best.

Viewpoints 13A Beacon, August 9, 2012Every time professional athletes behave badly, the NCAA punishes a football program or a college player lands in jail, sports fans talk about how we no longer have sports heroes. In the last month, Penn State was slapped with a $60 million fine for tolerating child abuse. A top draft pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI after blowing triple the legal limit in his second arrest for driving drunk. And days before the opening of the 2012 Summer Olympics, a Greek track-and-field star was kicked off the team for posting a racist tweet. Luckily, something always happens to turn the talk around. And that something came during the opening week of the London Olympics, when Florida swimmer Ryan Lochte became the first American to win a gold medal in these games. Lochte went head-to-head with swimming phenomena Michael Phelps in the 400-medley and crushed him. He went on to finish the games with five medals, bringing his total to 11, second behind Phelps overall, and tied with Mark Spitz and Matt Biondi. Though Lochte hoped these Olympics would be his moment to dominate, he handled Phelps continued success with grace, calling him the greatest Olympian of all time. As for Lochte, sports fans have long had reason to admire his talent and work ethic. The 28-year-old University of Florida graduate holds four world records. In major international competitions, hes won 62 medals 39 gold, 13 silver and 10 bronze. Yet because of the spotlight on Phelps, he entered the Olympics a virtual unknown. Few Floridians likely know Lochte was born and raised in Daytona Beach. Fewer still know how much he gives back. Being a hero goes beyond physical talent, courage and moral excellence. From our sports heroes, we expect something in exchange for their good fortune, some self-sacrifice to benefit the greater good. Lochte gives of his time and money to help the National Parkinson Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Parent Project and the Mac Crutchfield Fund, where he serves as spokesman. Mac Crutchfield was a 12-year-old swimmer from Tallahassee who drowned after slipping and hitting his head during Tropical Storm Fay in 2008. Every year, Lochte takes time to host a dinner and a golf tournament to raise money for drowning awareness. We can be proud that a Floridian was the first gold medal athlete in these Olympic games. More importantly, he is worthy of our admiration. Lochte is a sports hero who deserves to be called a hero.Formerly a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times and Orlando Sentinel, Susan Clary is a freelance writer in Orlando. She can be reached at email@example.com. Florida Voices If youre opposed to same-sex marriages and are planning to visit Boston, forget about it. You wont be welcomed there. At least not if you run into Mayor Thomas Menino. The mayor is opposed to people who dislike same-sex marriages. If he could, he would use his elected power to keep such people out of Boston, or at least prevent them from opening a business there. Recently he spoke out against a fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, because its owner Dan Cathy supports organizations that dont approve of men marrying men, and women marrying women. Menino said that, if he could, he would gladly try to stop Chick-fil-A from opening an outlet in downtown Boston near the Freedom Trail. Thats a tourist attraction that celebrates Bostons role in starting the American Revolution. You recall that event? Its the one in which colonists shook off oppressive British rule and founded a nation dedicated to freedom of thought and speech. Sadly for Mayor Menino, he cant legally block Chick-fil-A from doing business in Boston. But he can take comfort from the fact that many Americans agree with him, including the mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel. He says Chick-fil-A does not share Chicagos values, at least about same-sex marriage. Which triggers a sensible response: How does Emanuel know that? Chicago has about 2,700,000 residents. I doubt that all of them, or even most of them, agree on the same-sex marriage issue. Or any other issue. Im writing this on Aug. 1, and by the time the column appears the Chick-fil-A rumpus may have given way to other matters of urgent import. Still, I suggest that Mayor Meninos objection to Dan Cathys personal beliefs symbolizes the tip of an iceberg thats growing larger and more menacing as time passes. The banner atop the iceberg has a simple message: If you dont agree with me or my beliefs, then youre my enemy, and Im going to try to sink your ship. Americans have disagreed with one another for many years. But I cant remember a time (possible exception: the Civil War) in which so many people seem ready even eager to take sides, depending on how their friends, neighbors, or casual acquaintances feel about tax cuts, the Mormon church, gays/lesbians, healthcare, welfare and other issues. The tipping point in this divisiveness comes when our responses to someones beliefs have little or nothing to do with the beliefs themselves. Chick-fil-A is an example. Who should care what CEO Cathy believes as long as his company serves up good food at a fair price? Another example is the grumbling Ive heard about the phone company, AT&T, which has donated large sums to the Romney campaign. Does that mean Obama supporters should automatically cancel AT&T and sign up with Verizon or one of the other phone companies that keep yammering at us? I hope not. Is the Chick-fil-A squabble about freedom of speech, political correctness, political power, or what? Maybe all of those. Today in America freedom of speech and expression are legally protected, but youd still better be careful of exactly what you say and how you say it. One slip of the lip at the wrong time or in an inappropriate venue and you could lose a friend, your job or even your freedom. If Chick-fil-A goes ahead and opens a franchise in Boston, it will be interesting to see how many people will oppose the outlet, and how they will manifest their opposition. Picketing would be one technique. Boycotting the store and its food products would be another. Would the picketers and boycotters stop to think that they might be putting innocent Chick-fil-A employees in danger of losing their jobs? Probably not. When righteous indignation comes in the door, fairness and justice usually fly out the window. If the Menino Principle (lets give it that name, for convenience) were to be placed in effect nationwide, every city and state would have a BAB (Belief Approval Board) with the power to accept or reject new businesses, based on the personal beliefs of each companys owner. An owner who favored abortion rights would be OKd in one city or state but disapproved in another. What a crazy quilt of capitalism that would quickly become. Automaker Henry Ford was an anti-Semite of the highest (or lowest) caliber. Millions of Americans disagreed with his racial/religious beliefs, but they still bought his cars. Did that change Ford-owners into bigots? Of course not. I have no objection to same-sex marriage. But the next time Im hungry while standing outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant, Im going to go inside and chow down. If that makes me an insensitive, right-wing boor, so be it.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Prefer Mayor Menino or Chick-fil-A?When it comes to pedestrian safety, the city of Lakeland has the right idea. A sidewalk encircles Lake Hollingsworth, which lies near the middle of the city and is a popular destination for exercise buffs. Countless outdoor enthusiasts ride bicycles, roller blade, jog and walk around the lake, which is about three miles in circumference. On a recent Sunday morning, after visiting friends, I walked along the lake and noticed several large yellow pedestrian crossing signs along Lake Hollingsworth Drive. Many people use the crossings for access from residential areas to the lake. What caught my eyes underneath the pedestrian crossing signs were black and white signs that carried the message: Yield to pedestrians in crosswalk $75 fine. Thats the first time Id seen that message on signs anywhere. Kevin Cook, a city of Lakeland spokesman, said the signs were installed about a year ago, owing to the pedestrian traffic. The notice about the fines got my attention, I said. We elected to spell it out and make it more eye-catching, Cook said. And Im sure the legions of people who use the lake thank the city for that, though statistics werent readily available on the effects the new warnings have on accidents. I also noticed that large red flags hanged from a stop sign along the lake to alert drivers approaching an intersection near Florida Southern College. As one who fears getting slaughtered in an intersection anytime I go jogging or walking, Id like for our local governments to embrace Lakelands idea. Take Gulf Boulevard. My knees are too gimpy to play chicken with drivers. So I wait and count cars. One two three four or more, until a motorist finally realizes that the scarecrow wearing the visor tiptoeing out into the street actually wants to cross it and decides to stop for me. Those yellow crosswalks flags? Ive seen pedestrians wave the flags at cars as if they were leading a regiment in the thick of battle without slowing the vehicles down. Maybe pedestrians should be allowed to throw the flags at the cars. The federal Highway Traffic Safety Administration advises people to cross the street at a designated crosswalk. Always stop and look left, right and left again before crossing, it says. Did you write that down? Lets take that a step further. I would suggest you also look directly into the eyes of the motorist whose path youre trying to 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.com Publisher/President: Dan Autrey email@example.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli firstname.lastname@example.org Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey email@example.com Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier firstname.lastname@example.org Executive Editor: Tom Germond email@example.comProduction Manager: David Brown firstname.lastname@example.org Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter email@example.com Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure firstname.lastname@example.org Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond email@example.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd firstname.lastname@example.org Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl email@example.com Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

Wear whiteEditor: I hope at least one person will read this letter. It might save their life. Tonight, around 10 p.m, I turned left onto 74th Avenue from 113th Street. Upon completing the turn, I saw someone in dark clothing attempting to cross 74th Avenue. I came very close to hitting this person, mainly because he was wearing dark clothing and I honestly didnt see him until he was almost next to my car. Upon realizing this, I immediately turned around, headed back the other way and drove up next to him. I put my passenger side window down and attempted to apologize to him, saying I did not see him because of his dark clothing. Black shirt, black shorts. Really? At 10 p.m. I thought it was common knowledge or common sense that if youre going to walk at night, to wear light or reflective clothing. Anyway, before I could say more, this person cursed me, called me names, saying he had the walk sign. Well, I also had a green light. I understand as a pedestrian, he has the right of way. Again, I did not see him because of the dark clothing. My point to him was to apologize and suggested he wear light-colored clothing next time. I couldnt believe his rudeness when he continued to curse at me and wouldnt even listen to what I had to say. I could have let it go but felt bad enough to turn around. Maybe next time hell think about wearing a white shirt when walking the streets at 10 p.m. JoAnn Manna SeminoleSuggestions for the Biltmore projectEditors note: This letter was addressed to the Belleair mayor and Town Commission.Editor: In an attempt to simplify what went on at the July 17 Town Commission meeting, we conclude that there were two groups of people in attendance. One group wants the resort and the other doesnt. The people who want the resort envision the renewal not only of the structures, but the renewal of local economic activity not seen in our lifetime in this town. In addition, it will restore the unique and distinctive character to our town of Belleair. It is safe to say, that if this idea succeeds, we will have in our midst a commercial enterprise that will rival any similar enterprise in the country, or in the world for that matter. Truly, this is the towns chance of the towns lifetime. The people who dont want the resort prefer to live in a town that looks just like any other town in the state of Florida. Without the resort, what would be the difference? In recalling the comments made that night by the folks who dont want the resort, their strategy seems to be, how can we delay moving forward with this project. The last time this strategy was used was when the previous project people were taken to court with a frivolous lawsuit resulting in the buyers dropping the project. The loss of revenue to the town as a result of the five-year inactivity should be recalled. Their anti-resort proposal is nothing more than a vague idea, which will require the town to change codes and demolish the structures without any hope of even approaching the revenue that will be generated by a successful enterprise like the resort. Of course, they may then step in and save the day by buying the undeveloped land at fire sale prices. What a thoughtful thing to do for the good of the town! Yes, people like that live among us. Friends of the Biltmore are serious about seeing this project move forward ASAP, so we offer you the following suggestions: Respond as rapidly as possible without compromising due diligence in reviewing new information as it becomes available. Share your findings quickly with the town, even if you have to call special meetings. If ad hoc committees need to review this, they should be given the information at the same time as you receive it. If you are not getting rapid responses to your questions from the potential buyers, please let us know. If we can be of any assistance in facilitating this project, please let us know. We hope you realize that we, like the potential buyers, have a sense of urgency because we know we have a narrow window of opportunity to get this reviewed. We look for your assurance that you share a similar view.

Its amazing how many stone faces you encounter when you try to walk across a busy intersection between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Rush hour brings out the stone face in all of us, I guess. Pedestrian fatalities increased 19 percent in 2010 over the previous years. So its good to know that across the country, cities are embracing technologies, plans and educational programs to improve pedestrian safety on streets. But even the most innovative programs arent going to change the attitudes of motorists who are hell bent on not stopping at an intersection even if a handicapped person is waiting to cross it. One two Three four. Lakeland has it right. Bring on the signs, I say, with a slight modification in the penalty. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalk $500 fine. Just kidding. And dont be a stone face.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

HURRICANE SEASON IS HERE! Vessel safety checks may save your life and friendsSpanish mackerel fishing is only getting better with each passing week. Hard-bottom areas within a mile of shore are holding decent numbers of fish. Try Sand Key, Blind Pass and Redington Pier. They should all be holding Spanish mackerel as well as the occasional cobia. Also, the artificial reefs from 3 to 10 miles out are also good places to target. On a recent snapper trip to one of the near-shore reefs we had the snapper and the mackerel chummed up behind the boat. Although only a few baits made it past the mackerel to the snapper it was still really good fishing. Upon returning from our trip offshore we decided to try for some trout along a deep grass flat just inside the pass. The tide was moving out quickly and packs of terns were dipping on schools of small fry bait; it definitely looked promising. After tossing out a couple of handfuls of frisky chummers it didnt take long for the water to begin to boil. There were trout anywhere from 12 inches up to 18 inches popping up all around the boat. As we caught trout after trout all the while continuing to chum to keep the bites coming, we managed to lure in a school of Spanish mackerel ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches, definitely our best mackerel of the day. Bait has been decent lately; small pilchards have been staged up right inside the swash channel all along the beach. These baits are anywhere from an inch and a half up to two and half inches long so I would definitely recommend a quarter inch mesh cast net.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Hard-bottom areas yield plenty of Spanish mackerel, cobia action If you spend much time on the water in your boat, the chances are good that you have, or will be stopped by law enforcement officers or the Coast Guard to inspect your vessel to determine if the required safety equipment is onboard and in the proper locations for access in the event of an emergency. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary provides free Vessel Safety Checks and for about 15 minutes of your time, you can find out if your boat meets the state and federal requirements and if so, upon satisfactory completion of the inspection, you will be given a vessel certification emblem that you must, immediately after passing the inspection, attach to the port side of your vessel, preferably near the helm. Plus you will have the peace of mind knowing that your boat meets all state and federal safety requirements, the violation of which could cost you from hundreds to thousands of dollars in fines. The following are the minimum federal safety requirements you must be in compliance with to pass a Vessel Safety Inspection by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary: REGISTRATION NUMBERS Your registration numbers must be painted or permanently attached to both sides of the forward half of your boat. The numbers must be clearly visible, and in plain vertical block characters and must read from left to right. Your registration number consists of two letters indicating the state of registry and up to four numbers followed by one or two more letters, and separated by a space as follows: FL 1234 CG. REQUIRED SAFETY EQUIPMENT on a boat must include one or more, sometimes depending on the length of the vessel, of the following: Working fire extinguishers Life jackets of the proper size for every person on your boat A sound producing device, such as a bell or horn Visual distress signals (typically these are flares but they must not have passed their expiration date, which must be visible) and can include specialized flags during daylight operations; proper ventilation and back-flame control for IOs or inboards, working navigation lights. For boats with installed toilets, a working marine sanitation device must be installed. Proper battery connections In general, if you have all of the above your boat will pass a Coast Guard Auxiliary Safety Inspection. However, there are some additional safety items that are not required, but highly recommended by the Coast Guard to improve your safety. RECOMMENDED SAFETY EQUIPMENT includes a signaling mirror, a manual dewatering device, which can range from a simple bucket to an electric bilge pump, a first-aid kit, an anchor, and a VHFFM Radio, an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicator Radio Beacon) and basic tools and spare parts for your boat. For more information, simply visit this site www.cgaux.org/vsc/ for information on obtaining a VSC. In addition, the Coast Guard Auxiliary offers free ongoing boating safety classes.

During the month of August, adopters can bring their pets adoption records for a free veterinary exam. This offer is limited to one free exam per household, adopted within the last six months. Adopting a pet is a life-long commitment, said Dr. John P. Mead, owner/veterinarian at Sandy Paws Veterinary Clinic. It is essential that our pets have yearly preventative care to maintain a long, healthy life with their adopted families.

The ASPCA rescued hundreds of cats from Caboodle Ranch in Lee, Fla., in February. Several shelters around Florida also will host adoption events for Caboodle Ranch cats Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 11 and 12. The Humane Society of Pinellas event will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at 1928 Gulfto-Bay Blvd. Overflow parking will be available across the street at Clearwater High School.

The Humane Society of Pinellas shelter on State Road 590 will be closed to the public Aug. 11 and 12 so that all resources can be directed to the adoption event. For nearly five months, hundreds of ASPCA responders have been managing the sheltering, medical treatment and behavior enrichment of these animals removed from the overcrowded and unsanitary conditions at Caboodle Ranch. In June, the County Court, Third Judicial Circuit, Madison County, Fla., stripped Caboodle Ranch of all rights, title or interest in the animals seized from its property and placed the animals in the custody of the Madison County Sheriffs Office.

When she hears of a renowned couples specialist (Steve Carell) in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their bedroom hang-ups and try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place. The Bourne LegacyGenre: Action and thriller Cast: Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac Director: Tony Gilroy Rated: PG-13 The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy.

Byrne Director: Jay Roach Rated: When long-term Congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of unscrupulous power brokers plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: nave Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local tourism center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors support and a cutthroat campaign manager, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other. Its a mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from Meet the Parents director Jay Roach that takes todays political circus to its logical next level. Because, even if you believe campaign ethics have hit rock bottom ... theres still room to dig a whole lot deeper.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters. Days in New YorkGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Julie Delpy, Alexia Landeau and Alexandre Nahon Director: Julie Delpy Rated: R Hip talk-radio host and journalist Mingus (Chris Rock) and his French photographer girlfriend, Marion (Julie Delpy), live cozily in a New York apartment with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. But when Marions jolly father (played by Delpys real-life dad, Albert Delpy), her oversexed sister, and her sisters outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for an overseas visit, it initiates two unforgettable days of family mayhem. With their unabashed openness and sexual frankness, the triumvirate is bereft of boundaries or filters and no one is left unscathed in its wake. The visitors push every button in the couples relationship, truly putting it to the test.GoatsGenre: Comedy Cast: David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Graham Phillips, Justin Kirk, Ty Burrell, Keri Russell, Anthony Anderson and Dakota Johnson Director: Christopher Neil Rated: R In Goats, Ellis (Graham Phillips) is the most adult member of his eccentric family at 15 years old. His mom (Vera Farmiga) is a New Age hippie that spends all of her time working on self-help rituals with her hustler boyfriend (Justin Kirk). His dad (Ty Burrell) left home years ago and is more focused on his new wife (Keri Russell) and family. And then theres Goat Man (David Duchovny), the goat-herding sage who has lived in their pool house since Ellis was a child, teaching him the meaning of stability, commitment, and expanding ones mind. When Ellis decides to leave Tucson to go to the same East Coast prep school that his father went to, he easily assimilates to his new environment even gaining the attention of a local girl (Dakota Johnson). But as he re-connects with his estranged father, he finds Goat Mans influence and his life out West thrown into stark contrast. Based on Mark Jude Poiriers best-selling novel, director Christopher Neils hilarious and poignant film is a witty reversal of the coming of age formula, a beautifully honest portrayal of life.

PETERSBURG Ruth Eckerd Hall On the Road will present Steve Vai in concert Thursday, Aug. 16, 8 p.m., at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Tickets range from $35 to $45. Call 822-3590 or visit www.my Palladium.org. The Palladium will be Vais second stop on his official 2012 North American Tour in support of The Story of Light, a new solo album of original material from Favored Nations Entertainment a label Vai founded in 1999. The virtuoso guitarist and visionary composer selected a sprawling and expressive 12-song set that promises to continue a conceptual and cosmic narrative arc begun on the artists acclaimed 2005 album Real Illusions: Reflections. While The Story of Light is largely instrumental, the album does feature guest vocalists including singer-songwriter Aimee Mann (formerly of Til Tuesday) and Beverly McClellan. Mann sings the duet No More Amersterdam with Vai a song she also co-wrote. McClellan was a season one finalist on The Voice. She appears on John the Revelator, a track inspired by a vintage recording of blues singer Blind Willie Johnson. Other highlights from The Story of Light include the title track, which opens the album, Gravity Storm, The Moon and I and Velorum. As lyrically resonant as it is technically masterful, Vais lead guitar mastery bends sounds as the album explores the journey of a man driven mad by grief, touching upon elements of tragedy, revelation, enlightenment and redemption. Im always pursuing knowledge, Im a seeker of spiritual equilibrium and music is a big part of that, said Vai in a press release promoting the new album. Ive been obsessed with these kinds of ideas for years. Looking ahead, Vai envisions a third set of songs that will unravel the mysteries and reveal truths that swirl through both The Story of Light and Real Illusions: Reflections. The completed trilogy, intended to be both cinematic and operatic in scope, will include lyrics and narration. For more than two decades, Vais unique musical vision has remained largely unclassifiable. The three-time Grammy Award winner continues to summon up unbridled guitar virtuosity and soulful artistry to explore the spectrum of human emotion. Vai first picked up the guitar in 1973 when he was 13. He took guitar lessons from fellow guitarist Joe Satriani beginning in 1974. As early influences, Vai names guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Brian May, Jimmy Page and jazz-fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth. Vai played in several garage bands including one called The Steve Vais before attending the Berklee College of Music. At age 20, Vai first stepped into the spotlight back in 1980 as a guitarist in Frank Zappas band. He actually started his career with Zappa as a music transcriptionist. Vai ended up recording with Zappa and toured in Zappas band between 1980 and 1982. Starting with his self-released solo debut Flex-Able in 1984, Vai has traditionally created a sound all his own by striking a balance between technical ability and poetic phrasing. I make music to push my own buttons, said Vai in his artist biography on his Facebook page. Ive always been driven by an addiction to create sounds that are unique not better than whatPhoto courtesy of RUTH ECKERD HALLThe Palladium in St. Petersburg welcomes virtuoso guitarist Steve Vai Aug. 16.other people do, just different. According to Vai, that obsession with running down the voodoo in his head remains the guiding force behind his ongoing musical evolution. For me, the real gravy is when I hear a strange or beautiful sound in my head and then make it real in the world using the devices I have as a musician, said Vai. The things that have never been done before are what interest me most. Among Vais solo releases are the following albums: Flex-Able, 1984, self-released Passion & Warfare, 1990, on Relativity Records Sex & Religion, 1993, on Relativity Records Alien Love Secrets, 1995, on Relativity Records Fire Garden, 1996, on Epic Ultra Zone, 1999, on Epic Seventh Song, 2000, on Epic Alive in Ultra World, 2001, on Epic Real Illusions: Reflections, 2005, on Epic The Story of Light, 2012, on Favored Nations Vai also has recorded and toured with Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake. He has been a regular touring member of the G3 Concert Tour, which began in 1996.With his solo releases, contributions to film and music scores, and millions of records and concert tickets sold, Vai continues to expand the horizons of modern music. Vai will be joined on stage by his band, including Dave Weiner, guitar; Jeremy Colson, drums; Philip Bynoe, bass; and Deborah Hensen, harp, vocals and keyboards.For information, visit www.my Palladium.org.
