Page 4B.State agriculture chief says various sources are the key to the future Photo by BRIAN GOFFFlorida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, right, speaks to attendees Aug. 22 at an energy conference at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College. By BRIAN GOFFSEMINOLE If Florida is going to be able to compete with other states in luring investment and jobs, then it is going to have to have a firm and stable energy policy. Thats the word from Floridas Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. He made his case speaking at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College on Aug. 22. The occasion was a conference entitled Floridas Energy Future, and Putnam made it clear that the future depended on the state diversifying its energy sources and spreading out its dependency over a variety of those sources. We cant rely on any one thing; not coal, not solar, not wind, not bio-mass alone, he said. We must embrace all sorts of energy sources. Underlying it all, he said, was the need for stability. We have to let the market decide what is right, he said. We cant pick the winners and losers, that has to sort itself out. We have to embrace all types of energy, even new ideas. Let then play out and in the end see what is left standing. We cant have nuclear in today, out tomorrow and back in the next day. Investors wont know where to put their money and customers wont know what they should be using.Technology has put energy ahead of its own debate in many cases, he said. One day we are all focused on cornbased ethanol as the energy of the future, yet the market showed us that ethanol isnt even in the conversation anymore. The market, consumers, had moved on. He said that proved the folly of pursuing just one source of energy; the portfolio has to be scattered over many sources. He pointed to natural gas as the newest and possibly the best source of energy these days.

The second and final hearing is Tuesday, Sept. 18, same time and same location. At that time, commissioners must give final approval of millage rates and budgets. The budget year begins Oct. 1. Property owners throughout the county received their Truth in Millage notices from the Property Appraisers office last week. Residents likely noticed the increase in the general fund and Emergency Medical Services millage rates levied by the county. Commissioners have yet to come to consensus on the millage rate increases recommended by County Administrator Bob LaSala. The administrators proposed budget increases the general fund millage from 4.8108 to 5.0307 and the rate for EMS from 0.8506 to 0.9158. However, thanks to a lower than anticipated back billing from the state for Medicaid, LaSala promised to present a lower millage for commissioners consideration at the Sept. 6 meeting. As indicated on the message sent out with TRIM notices, the millage increase for the general fund is intended to pay for unexpected Medicaid billings from the state. At a commission meeting Aug. 21, a staff recommendation was approved to accept a revised Medicaid bill from the state and take the 15 percent discount. The county had to make a decision by Sept. 1 whether to accept the bill as is and take the discount or challenge the bill and hope enough erroneous bills could be verified to make up the difference. Since the initial bill came in See BUDGET, page 4A

At the commission meeting Aug. 14, the commissioners heard from Tampa attorney Christa Collins regarding making a claim against the oil company. Collins is aligned with a law firm in Louisiana and another in Connecticut, which have already been retained, by both St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island to move forward toward making a claim. Collins explained to the commission that municipal claims have been separated from class action suits and can proceed on their own merit. We want to talk to the city to find out if a claim is possible, she said. Many businesses have suffered losses and it is reasonable to assume that municipalities have too. Collins noted that beach communities are in what is known as Zone A, which means that businesses making claims against BP dont have to explain their losses. In other words if a business can show a drop in income that happened after the spill, then it is assumed the loss occurred because of the spill. She said municipalities suffered because of the spill through a loss in taxes because of fewer visitors. Declines in restaurant business, fees, lower occupancy rates, she said. And I hate to be crass but even the number of commode flushes can indicate a loss. Fewer visitors mean fewer flushes and if the city lost revenue because of a lower water usage than that is something you could claim. City Attorney Maura Kiefer recommended that the commission hire Collins to explore potential claims. This is of no cost to the city. I believe the city owes it to itself to have an analysis done, she said. It is risk-free; this is a true contingency contract. Kiefer said she reviewed their contract and found it to be without any loopholes that would end up costing the city. Even the time I spend reviewing the document will not be billed, she said. Vice Mayor Terry Hamilton-Wollin noted that another attorney, Rick Kriseman, had approached the city about making a claim against BP and she felt he should be heard, just as Collins was. The other commissioners agreed and he will be invited to speak at the next Commission meeting on Aug. 28. City Attorney Kiefer said she read his contract as well and would not recommend the city sign on with him. Kriseman represents the city of Gulfport in matters regarding claims against BP. Brian GoffClearwater goes on record in favor of light railCLEARWATER To many people, a light rail transportation system between Clearwater and Tampa is the wave of the future. But others believe that it would be a costly boondoggle to build and a money pit to operate. On Aug. 16, the Clearwater City Council, which had been sitting on the fence, formally adopted a resolution in favor of the system. But not everyone was pleased. The fare box is not going to pay for this, conservative activist Joe Paige told the council. This is going to saddle the taxpayers with debt pretty much as far as the eye can see. While admitting that the system wont be self-supporting, Vice Mayor Paul Gibson said that it should be built anyway. There is not a transit system in the United States of America that is not subsidized, Gibson said. Not one. The resolution was the brainchild of Councilmembers Doreen HockDiPolito and Bill Jonson. It grew out a visioning project, called One Bay, which several regional entities jointly conducted in 2007. The initiative drew upon thousands of citizens to create a shared regional vision plan where future population and employment growth should occur based upon responsible land use, mobility, economic and environmental sustainability, the Clearwater resolution says of that project. The resolution notes that the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority has developed a regional master plan for transit, and the Florida Department of Transportation and the Tampa Bay Area Rapid Transit Authority have jointly initiated a feasibility study that calls for a new eastbound span of the Howard Frankland Bridge to have a cross bay exclusive transit link. It adds that several regional transportation agencies have conducted an Alternative Analysis Study to determine the locally preferred method of premium transit service. That study concluded that Light Rail Transit Service is the preferred transit option to connect Clearwater, Largo, the Greater Gateway area, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg in Pinellas County, with a regional rail connection across the Howard Frankland Bridge, according to the resolution. In addition, the Clearwater resolution calls for a premium bus connection along State Road 60 to Hillsborough County. The city of Clearwater recognizes that regional Light Rail Transit is crucial to the sustainable growth and development of the Tampa Bay Region and is consistent with the citys Comprehensive Plan, the resolution says. Clearly our existing highway system will not be able to keep up with this increase in demand, the resolution quotes Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad as saying in an Aug. 6, 2012 article in the Tampa Tribune. The core of our approach is to get the most we can from our existing highway corridors and encouraging the use of ridesharing and transit alternatives. In addition to thinking regionally, the resolution paid special attention to Clearwaters main north-south or, U.S. 19.Planning tool allows for higher densities in LargoLARGO City commissioners tried to allay fears Aug. 21 that a new land-use element allowing for higher densities in certain areas will disrupt lifestyles of traditional neighborhoods. Commissioners unanimously agreed to amend their comprehensive plan to add a land-use designation, called residential high, allowing a maximum density of 30 dwelling units per acre. The maximum residential density allowed in the plan at this time is residential medium, at 15 units an acre. A few residents urged commissioners to vote against the proposed ordinance, expressing concerns about the impact of higher densities on their residential areas. We are not going to come in your neighborhood and tear down your house and build something. Thats not what this city does, Mayor Pat Gerard said. Gerard said at least half the people who live in Largo do not live in single-family homes. They live in mobile homes, apartments and condominiums. We need those because not everybody can afford to live in a singlefamily home in a single-family neighborhood, she said. City officials say the high-density residential designation is appropriate in locations within or near to urban activity centers. These areas typically have direct access to arterial roads and thoroughfares and are served by mass transit, providing an alternative to automobile use. The designation is used in other cities in the county and in the unincorporated area. At the Aug. 21 meeting, Robert Bullard said Largo is largely a city of single-story, single-family residences. City officials, he said, through light rail and related components, are creating a socialists nightmare heavily dependent upon federal and state funding that simply wont exist. The voting residents of Largo very largely live in single-story, singlefamily residences, he said. They chose in many instances to live in Largo for the lifestyles that it brings. We have elected you to represent us. We want Largo to remain a community of single-story, single-family homes. You are choosing, however, to transform Largo into a city of high-rise dwelling units, apartments where we will experience the inefficiencies and burdens of giving up our cars to travel by bus, train, bicycle, walking, regardless of what our physical limitations might be. Steve McConihay provided a different opinion. He said he is in favor of the amendment because Largo is the city of progress. We live in an urban environment around here, he said. When he first moved to Largo, he said, people drove through Largo to get to other places. Now it is a city you drive to, he said. Most people who work in the city of Largo live someplace else because the city doesnt have adequate housing, he said.

But that wont stop the 33 million Americans with plans to travel this Labor Day weekend. AAAs Travel Services division recently released its projections for the holiday weekend, showing a 2.9 percent increase over last year. More Americans say theyll travel this Labor Day weekend since the recession began in 2008. This marks the third increase in holiday travel this year, according to the AAA/HIS Global Insight 2012 Labor Day Holiday Travel forecast. The Labor Day holiday travel period is Thursday, Aug. 30, to Monday, Sept. 3. In the absence of strong economic growth that might fuel a significant boost in travel volume, it is an encouraging sign that Americans continue to prioritize travel, said Bill Sutherland, vice president on AAA Travel Services. Travel is still within Americas discretionary spending budget. About 85 percent, or 28.2 million, will travel by automobile, a 3.1 percent increase from 2011. On average, theyll pay at least 16 cents more than last year, depending on the destination. The average price for a gallon of unleaded in Florida was $3.75 Aug. 26, which is about 18 cents more than the same date last year and 32 cents more than a month ago, according to AAAs Fuel Gauge Report. In the Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater metro area, the average price for unleaded was $3.73, which is 25 cents more than last year and 35 cents more than last month. A search for prices around Pinellas at www.floridastategasprices.com Aug. 26 showed low prices ranging from $3.59 to $3.69. A look at prices in adjacent states shows the average price of unleaded in Georgia at $3.70 and $3.56 in Alabama. Motorists in several states were paying average prices of more than $4 a gallon, including California, Connecticut, Oregon and Washington State. Residents of Hawaii are paying the most at the pumps, an average of $4.29 a gallon. Barring any significant unforeseen events such as severe hurricanes, geopolitical incidents or dramatic nationwide price increases, gas prices are not expected to have a major impact on Labor Day holiday weekend travel, AAA said. Historically, incidents that impact regional gas prices and regional travel have not impacted nationwide holiday travel. Energy price forecasters began to speculate as early as Aug. 21 on the impact of Tropical Storm Isaac on gas prices. Some oil companies began shutting down operations on Aug. 24 ahead of the storm. Although most Americans will travel by auto, AAA predicts a 3.7 percent increase of people taking to the air, in part due to the recent decrease in airfares, which decreased 4 percent over last year with an average lowest round-trip rate of $197 for the top 40 U.S. air routes, according to AAAs Leisure Travel Index. Most travelers will be sticking close to home, with 54 percent taking shorter-distance trips of 100 to 140 miles roundtrip. However, those planning longer trips will travel a bit farther than last year, 626 miles compared to 608 in 2011, which factors in an increase in air travel. Median spending is expected to be $749, a small increase over the $702 median spending of intended holiday travelers in 2011. Hotel rates are up, averaging $154 a night at AAA Three Diamond lodgings compared to $148 a night last year. Prices at AAA Two Diamond accommodations will spend 6 percent more with average costs at $117 a night. The good news is car rental prices are down 10 percent as compared to 2011 with average prices at $39 a day.Labor Day travelers can expect higher prices at the pump
4A SEB Beacon, August 30, 2012In 2005 natural gas had to be imported and wasnt widely used, he said. Now, today, we are exporting natural gas. Our use of natural gas has gone from 4 percent to 24 percent since 2005. We have 150 years of stock under our soil. It is inside the U.S., it is secure and reliable. He said the future of natural gas in Florida was looming large. It will be used to fuel vehicles, he said. The Postal Service, UPS, milk trucks, chip trucks, anyone who starts and ends in the same place every day will make efficient use of natural gas. But he said as we begin to rely on natural gas, more and more, problems arise. If we continue using natural gas as we are it wont be long before two-thirds of Floridas energy needs will be filled by natural gas, he said. But if we are to reach that figure then we are going to need more pipes. Right now only two pipelines are bringing natural gas into Florida and they are coming out of Louisiana, hurricane alley. He went on to talk about issues involving other sources of energy. We have to figure out ways to store solar energy before that can be widely used, he said. It would be nice to have more and more renewable energy sources, but they arent ready for prime time. Were making progress, and research and development efforts are under way to bring costs down and making it all fit in Florida, but it will take some time. Whats the states agriculture commissioner doing as the steward of the States energy policy? To hear Putnam tell it, it is all very logical. First of all as agricultural commissioner, I oversee the usage of a lot of land in Florida. Land which is actively involved in growing food or land, which could be actively involved in growing and producing energy-related crops, he said. Sometimes the land is just there not being used at all. But sooner or later an energy related activity will take place on that land. As he is involved in overseeing the use of that land, he is also passionate about the need for energy. An energy policy is the foundation for all that we do, he said. We must have low and stable energy prices. Otherwise how do we convince seniors to move here in their retirement years, how do we convince industry to move here and create jobs. Energy is connected to all things, especially things connected to our quality of life. PUTNAM, from page 1Afor more than $33 million in unanticipated retroactive Medicaid costs, county staff has been working to verify charges and negotiate with the state. Gwendolyn Warren, director of Health and Human Services, explained the three-pronged approach to address the systemic problems with the new law. First, the commissioners joined with Florida Association of Counties to oppose the bill that changed the way Medicaid was billed and collected. Second, staff worked with Pinellas Countys legislative team and other counties, as well as the state to negotiate changes to the initial billing. The county also joined with 54 other counties to challenge the legislation in the courts. Warren said the county administrator added a fourth prong in July when he facilitated staffs ability to review of the backlog bills more efficiently. The county used the services of LexisNexis to search databases of public information to verify whether the persons associated with the bills were Pinellas County residents at the time a Medicaid charge was made on their behalf in another county. Meanwhile, the state found that more than 50 percent of charges billed to counties could not be substantiated. On Aug. 1, the state sent Pinellas County a new bill for just over $17.8 million to pay for charges from Nov.1, 2001 to April 30, 2012 a 46 percent reduction from the original bill of more than $33 million. County staff began reviewing charges on the new bill, using the capabilities of the LexisNexis databases and reports to identify another $2.1 million in inaccurate hospital and nursing home claims. The state is currently reviewing those bills and agreed to credit the county for any claims found to be inaccurate. Warren told commissioners if they accepted the states latest bill for $17.8 million, the county could save nearly $2.7 million through the 15 percent discount. If the state agrees with the county on the $2.1 million in potential inaccurate bills, Pinellas Medicaid debt from the past 10 years could go down to just over $12.9 million. Warren said that while the numbers werent set in stone, she believed it would be in the best interest of the county to accept the bill and take the discount. We probably wont benefit from further review of the bill, she said. She said staff would keep the forensic review process in use for future Medicaid billings. She also said that the savings from the process outweighed the cost. She cautioned that despite the good work done to bring down retroactive bills, future charges could be higher due to increase of people becoming eligible for Medicaid due to the economy.

Existing businesses will remain, including the Friendly Fisherman restaurant, Hubbards Marina, Bubba Gump, and Hooters. By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH Following almost 40 years of ownership, the Hubbard family has sold off its extensive holdings at Johns Pass Village. Major affected properties include Bubba Gumps Shrimp Company, Hooters, the Friendly Fisherman restaurant, Hubbards Marina and the planned Secrets of the Sea Marine Exploration Center and Aquarium. The property consists of about 40,000 square feet of retail space located in five buildings, and a 322car parking garage. The new owner is AEGON, an international insurance company headquartered in The Netherlands, with a large office in St. Petersburg. AEGON holds the mortgage on the property. In exchange for giving up ownership of their holdings, the Hubbard organization now becomes debt-free, Patricia Hubbard, CEO of Hubbard Properties, told the Beacon on Aug. 23. Hubbard Properties had acquired a substantial amount of debt as the result of a $20 million construction loan to finance building of a parking garage and retail complex in 2004. Hubbard said a series of events beginning with threatened hurricanes in the fall of 2004, and continuing with the economic and stock market collapse in 2008, an especially bad winter in 2010, fallout from the BP oil spill and reconstruction of the Johns Pass Bridge caused a sharp drop in customers at the highly tourist-dependent Johns Pass Village businesses. An exodus of tenants followed, Hubbard said, resulting in an accumulated debt we couldnt work our way out of. In January 2011, Hubbard Properties filed for bankruptcy protection. Weve struggled for 18 months through the bankruptcy, and then came to what we consider good negotiated terms with the lender, Hubbard said. They will get the property. We will retain our businesses. Operations at the family businesses will continue as usual, Hubbard said. We will concentrate on what we do best, she said, which will be running the Friendly Fisherman restaurant and Hubbards Marina, including the new casino ship. Hubbard said the changes would have very little impact on our customers. The new owners even plan to make some capital improvements once they take over, she said. One difference is that the Hubbards will now pay, rather than collect, rent payments, along with other businesses. A priority for the new owners will be to get the Secrets of the Sea marine center up and running, she said. The facility, which is a rebirth of St. Petersburgs Pier Aquarium, occupies 12,500 square feet on two floors of the garage/retail complex. The opening of the center has been pushed out, as financing issues have delayed its completion. The Hubbard familys involvement in Johns Pass Village spans almost four decades, beginning in 1976 when Captain Wilson Hubbard moved his fishing operation to Johns Pass from Pass-A-Grille. Giving up ownership of the properties, especially the garage/retail complex their crown jewel accomplishment is sad for the Hubbards, Patricia said. But we know we built this, and its a beautiful building. Teachers get a treat Photo courtesy of NANETTE GRASSOOrange Grove Elementary teachers and staff were treated Aug. 13 to a full complimentary breakfast by school neighbor/partner Mamas Kitchen Family Restaurant, 5885 Seminole Blvd., to kick off the 201213 school year. Family community liaison Annette Lanier coordinated with Mamas Kitchen owners Chris Yiallouros and Tony Antoniou at the end of the last school year after Principal Nanette Grasso suggested that an alternate site other than the school media center be used for the first day meeting. Lanier contacted the Mamas Kitchen owners who offered to do the breakfast free of charge because they believe teachers and educators are underappreciated but do so much to help so many and work very hard.

Police beat Police beatTeacher arrested for iPad theftPALM HARBOR A former teacher at Dunedin Middle School was arrested about 2:20 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, at a private residence in Palm Harbor. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Julia King, 34, of Naples was charged with one count of dealing with stolen property in connection with a theft of an iPad. Detectives assigned to the Burglary and Pawn Unit began investigating the case in September of 2011 after the iPad was reported stolen from Dunedin Middle School. On May 8, a routine pawn inquiry by detectives revealed that King had sold the iPad for $145 to a local Best Buy on April 26. According to deputies, King had been employed as a teacher at Dunedin Middle School and was later transferred to East Lake High School. King was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000. The investigation continues.Deputies investigate fatal motorcycle crashOLDSMAR Deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a fatal vehicle crash in Oldsmar. The crash took place at the intersection of Tampa Road and Burbank Road in Oldsmar at approximately 6:51 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. According to deputies, the 2001 Hyundai was traveling eastbound on Tampa Road and was in a left turn lane to turn onto Burbank Road. The Hyundai attempted to turn left and did not see the motorcycle traveling westbound on Tampa Road. As the Hyundai turned, the motorcycle struck the passenger rear door of the Hyundai. The driver of the Hyundai was not injured in the crash, the motorcycle rider however was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. The motorcycle riders name is not being released at this time as deputies attempt to notify the next of kin. The investigation continues.Arrest made in April 5 murder in LargoLARGO A man accused of the April 5 murder of a Largo man was in custody in the DeKalb County Jail near Atlanta on Thursday, Aug. 23. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced the arrest at an afternoon press conference. U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Eddie Jonathan Todd Walker, 28, about 11 a.m. at an apartment in Lithonia, Ga. Gualtieri said Walker was arrested without incident. Robbery and homicide detectives have been looking for Walker, last known address in Seminole, in connection with the shooting death of Terrence Bernar Thomas since Aug. 3 after detectives received tips identifying Walker as the shooter. Thomas was found in the street April 5 near 703 Patterson St. in Largo. He was shot once in the head. A first-degree murder warrant was signed for Walker on Aug. 9. PCSO announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest on Aug. 13 after Walker failed to turn himself in after detectives spoke with his attorney. Gualtieri said five unproductive tips were received as the result of the award, but that homicide detectives worked to locate Walker through other investigative information and electronic surveillance techniques to include monitoring cell phones. Witnesses reportedly told detectives that Thomas and Walker had fought over the quality of cocaine Thomas had sold Walker. Gualtieri said it was possible that charges could be brought on others connected to Walker.

This short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. The maintenance program was originally scheduled to begin Aug. 27 but is being delayed one week to allow completion of Republican National Convention activities. Those impacted by this maintenance program include Pinellas County customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Oldsmar. Many communities using chloramine annually utilize chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions. There are no major indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems and this disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problem. The water will continue to meet federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Customers may notice a slight difference in taste and/or odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Conditions experienced by water customers will be identical to the more than 50 years prior to 2002 when chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water. For more information, please visit www.pinellas county.org/utilities or contact Pinellas County Customer Service at 464-4000.County expands veterans servicesCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Department of Health and Human Services, which operates the Office of Veterans Services, has announced plans to expand services to homeless veterans living in Pinellas County. With more than 100,000 veterans in Pinellas County, the county ranks third in the state of Florida in the number of veterans living in a county. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, approximately one-third of the adult homeless population is veterans. A large percentage of these veterans served in the Vietnam War, as well as a growing number of veterans recently returning from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Many of these veterans are suffering from the debilitating effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, physical disabilities, and behavioral health and substance abuse issues. In an effort to better meet the needs of this population, the Health and Human Services Department is planning to increase outreach efforts and services to homeless veterans that will help get them off the streets, into housing and treatment programs, provide them with quality healthcare, and give them vocational training and access to programs and services they need. The goal of this initiative is to target the countys at-risk veterans and enable them to return to selfsufficiency. Plans include the addition of regular visits by staff to shelters and soup kitchens that serve homeless veterans. These locations include Pinellas Hope in Pinellas Park and Safe Harbor in Largo.

DAILEYLARGO Although she was born in Hartford, Ala., in 1944, Joyce Meinsen (nee Grant) considers Largo her hometown. Her father worked for the Indian Rocks Nursery and the family lived in a small, company-owned house. But when it was time to give birth to Joyce and her brother, their mother went back to her mothers house in Alabama. In 1948, the family bought its own home in Roosevelt Groves, behind present-day Largo High School. In 1950, Joyce was enrolled in what was called the Largo School. It was the whole school system, grades one through 12, and there was a basement in one part that had the cafeteria, she said. When kids went to school back then, they walked in groups. There was no such thing as a school bus for us, although they may have bused kids in from the beaches. More than a half-century later, she still remembers the name of her grade principal, Bentley Lawson; the assistant principal, Nick Mangum; the school librarian, Mrs. Delac; and the teachers: Mrs. Houseman, Mrs. Rosseall. Mrs. Hennesy, and Mrs. Harrell. In third grade, she was transferred to the new Mildred Helms Elementary School, which only had two wings then. The third wing was added later. The kids would hurry home from school in hopes of reaching the railroad station in time to see the regularly scheduled train snag a mail bag from the station as it roared through. While the new high school was being built, the School Board rented the Largo auditorium and divided it into four sections for four seventh-grade teachers. When the new high school opened, the former 1-12 Largo School became the middle school. Going to the new high school near her home was great for Joyce. On hot days, against her parents orders, she and some other girls would bring their bathing suits to school and take an after-school dip in the nearby pond. But she had to hurry home and dry her hair before her parents got home and discovered that she had been swimming. In those days, downtown Largo was a bustling hub of commerce, with plenty of things for a youngster to do. The north side of West Bay Drive had a Pure Oil station, a Super X grocery and meat market, a Western Auto store, a dime store, two drug stores with soda fountains, a clothing store, a barber shop and the West Coast Garage. Best of all, there was a Quonset hut movie theater where, on Saturdays, a kid could get a whole afternoon of entertainment for 25 cents. Usually they would have a cowboy movie, an adventure movie, a serial and, of course, cartoons, Meinsen said. We went in at noontime and got out around four oclock. It was time to have supper. On the south side of West Bay Drive were Happys Liquor Store; the Idle Hour Bar, where kids could peek through the screen door to see who was inside; an arcade with a shoe repair shop and a doctors office; the Gator Bar, which once had a song written about it; and a hardware store. There was a little shelterPhoto by LESTER R. DAILEYJoyce Meinsen recalls going to a Quonset hut movie theater decades ago where on Saturdays a kid could get a whole afternoon of entertainment for 25 cents. near Ulmer Park where the bus stopped. When I got into high school, a group of us would ride the bus to Clearwater Beach to swim, Meinsen recalled. Ulmer Park had a shuffleboard court and a bandstand where concerts were held. At Christmas, Santa handed out candy, and there were sometimes Easter and Halloween events. Meinsen described the original police station as being the size of a good-sized bathroom, with just enough room for a desk and a phone. But that phone rarely rang because anyone who had a problem would call the police chief at home and let him handle it. It wasnt unusual for the older boys to pick up the police station at Halloween and hide it, Meinsen said. Every year, usually toward the end of February, the county fair was held on the fairgrounds, where Largo Central Park and the library are now located. It was the old-fashioned kind of fair, with animals on display, rides, games, food and a few sideshows, Meinsen said. There was a metal building where women displayed their jams, quilts and things, and where businesses displayed their wares and gave out samples. You always came back with a bagful of things, and there was always a drawing where you could win even more things. After graduating from Largo High School in 1962, Meinsen married and lived in Texas and Oklahoma. But when her husband was killed in an automobile accident in 1963, she returned to Largo. She remarried in 1965 and is the mother of three sons, one of whom died 14 years ago. And she plans to spend the rest of her life in Largo. When I came back, I said Id never move away again, she said. And I havent.

R Viewpoints 13A Beacon, August 30, 2012I hope this column finds you high and dry. Here are some random ramblings about goings-on in the area.Naming rightsThe city of Largo is asking the community to submit names for its newest owl at the McGough Nature Park. The great horned owl is nearly blind. The park also is home to Matilda, a barred owl; and Franklin, also a great horned owl. For readers, especially those who live outside Largo who have not been to the park, its located at 11901 146th St., which is just northeast of the Indian Rocks Bridge off Walsingham Road. Its a great nature park that is enjoyed by people of all ages and also has a boardwalk overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. I have a suggested name for the owl, but since we journalists are taught to refrain from directly participating in news events, I wont submit it to the city. However, if you like my suggestion, feel free to enter it. Why not name the owl Barb, as a tribute to the Clearwater Audubon Societys Barbara Walker, who rescued the owl and has done so much for the park and preservation of wildlife in the area? To submit a name for the owl, visit www.largo.com/egov/apps/doc ument/center.egov?view=item;id=8846/. Heartfelt support for fallen soldierIts kind of hard to find the words to capture the love and support shown Aug. 10 for U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton, who was killed in Afghanistan Aug. 2. Many Largo and other area residents waited for an hour or longer for the funeral procession to make its way down Ulmerton Road that day. Hundreds of residents, carrying American flags of all sizes, lined the highway, especially in front of the First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks, unfazed by the stifling heat, to express their support for Sitton and his family. By all accounts, Sitton was a hell of a fine solider, and I hope the community continues to honor him at future events as we remember the sacrifices our troops have made for us. Kind of hard to keep a dry eye that day, as several friends of Sitton and his family shared stories about him. If there were any discussion about whether America should be sending its troops to Afghanistan, I didnt hear it and Im glad I didnt, pro or con. The gathering that day was an event I will never forget. Thats a promise.Ready for some football?Ive always enjoyed watching high school football practice because of the passion shown by the players and coaches for the game, even though they practice in the extreme heat. Recently, I shot photos of the Largo High School Packers run some drills. Caught up with defensive coach Jeremy Frioud, wearing his tattered straw hat and dispensing advice to players, with vigor. His quote says it all. I love these kids and I love the game and I will do it until I die, Frioud said. If I won the Powerball yesterday, Id still be here. Just in better clothes.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@TBNweekly.comThis week my daughter begins middle school. At 11, she has enjoyed more formal schooling than my grandmother. But as she begins another step on the way to an educated life, she is merely taking advantage of my grandmothers legacy a fundamental belief in the value of education. My grandmother never went further than the third grade before she dropped out to help raise her younger siblings, yet the educational values she gave me will be passed down for generations. Of course, I didnt always appreciate it when, each time she heard the government radio station play the calypso by the Mighty Sparrow, Education, she would launch into another of her lectures on the importance of education. There is simply no room in the whole wide world for an uneducated little boy or girl, Sparrow sang. Even now I cant listen to the song on YouTube without hearing echoes of my grandmothers kitchen-sink lectures. My grandmother is now 90. A product of the British colonial empire, she could only aspire to work on a cotton plantation. But she believed poverty is the best fertilizer for ambition and that being destitute is a springboard not a hindrance to academic success. She peppered her exhortations with anecdotes about local success stories who owned one school uniform that they washed each night to wear the next morning, and who, driven by poverty, climbed to the top of their class. My grandmother intuitively knew what later studies proved: when parents unambiguously preached the gospel of education, students earned higher grades, completed homework, showed up regularly and on time for school, and were more likely to graduate from high school and enroll in college. A Center for Public Education survey similarly found more than 60 percent of teachers believe the more parents are involved, the better their students do. Parents, too, believe that children of uninvolved parents fell through the cracks, according to the think tank linked to the National School Boards Association. The role of parents comes into focus not just as another school year begins, but also as politicians inevitably debate the best solutions to improve mediocre students and failing schools. Im no expert, but I know what worked for my grandmother, and what worked for me. She couldnt help me with my math, so she paid for a tutor. She made sure I grabbed every opportunity before and after school. As my friends played cricket on the street outside my house on weekday afternoons, she insisted I hit the books. For years I resisted, but eventually her vision became mine. Success and failure inside the classroom mattered to me. I wanted my name to be called at every academic award ceremony. Almost 50 years later, my grandmothers ambition is my reality. But Im not the only one who benefits. Everyone in her ancestral line can thank her. She has lived long enough to receive the accolades. She came to the ceremony where I earned my masters. Three of her great grandchildren, my sisters children, have already graduated from college. And her legacy, her gift, goes even further. Each time I step inside a classroom, I take my grandmothers vision with me. My students will never meet her, but theyll always hear the voice of a woman with minimal schooling and a boundless faith in the power of education to transform lives. It changed mine. It can change theirs.Andrew J. Skerritt is an assistant professor of journalism at Florida A&M University and the author of Ashamed to Die: Silence, Denial and the AIDS Epidemic in the South. He can be reached at askerritt@flori davoices.com. Follow him on twitter at andrewjskerritt. Florida Voices The new-word inventors are at it again. In truth, those guys never really quit. They stay awake 24/7 trying to come up with new and often useless words with which to contaminate the American language. The most recent to come to my attention is double down. Example: As Election Day nears, both candidates are doubling down their campaign activities. Why not simply say doubling or increasing? Who needs the down? When I get to be king, anyone saying double down will have his/her mouth washed out with soap. Its not just the new expressions that irk me. Two useless and possibly meaningless phrases that weve heard for years are if you will and as it were. As in: As Smiths bank account dwindled, he found himself at the end of his rope, if you will. If I will what? With each day, Susie began to inhabit a sort of dream world, as it were. Wouldnt it be better to say, As it was? Or just say nothing? At least 65,000 times a year masters of ceremonies throughout the land will say, Our next speaker needs no introduction Really? If that statement is true, then why in Gods name utter it? Why not simply say, Our next speaker is Kim Kardashian and then sit down? A similar unneeded expression is Last, but not least, I give you Who says the person is not the least? Who has been keeping track and doing the ranking? Our friends the British have added a minor piece of language pollution with their inserting actually into many sentences that simply do not need it. Lord Shaftingham, has the weather in Sussex been pleasant? Well, actually, weve had more rain than weve needed . Americans are equally guilty, except that instead of saying actually we say basically when that word is hardly ever needed. After the police fired 314 rounds into the serial killer, he was basically dead. When you hear an interviewee begin his answer by saying, Well, basically you can be pretty sure the guy isnt ready with a suitable answer and is just stalling for time. A related complaint about language use (and Ive got a million of them) stems from people who fancify their speech for no good reason. I once worked with a management consultant who loved the word concept. Every time I came up with a suggestion or an idea, he replied, What a wonderful concept! or That concept isnt worth a dime. A concept is nothing more than an idea, so why dont we just call it that? In the early 1990s, the term paradigm came into vogue, especially in management circles. You couldnt have a staff meeting without running into a dozen or more paradigms. I finally looked up the words meaning, and learned that it simply means model or example. Since then I have tended to distrust anyone who uses paradigm in a sentence. Many useless terms are a product of sheer linguistic laziness. We use them as blankets to cover up our unwillingness to be precise. Example: blow my mind. Her singing simply blew my mind. Such a usage tells me almost nothing. Was the speaker impressed? Overjoyed? Excited? Awed? Rendered speechless? If any of these words described the speakers reaction, why doesnt he just say so? Answer: because that would require him to stop and think. The same goes for lost it. When I heard the guy berating his wife, I just lost it. Lost what, exactly? Your temper? Your self-control? Your respect for the guy? Fortunately, some useless expressions wear out their welcome and simply disappear from the verbal landscape. One of them was fair and equitable. Forty years ago that phrase was spouted by every business or labor reporter in the land. The settlement between Chrysler and the UAW is regarded as fair and equitable by most observers. Nobody bothered to point out that fair and equitable mean almost exactly the same thing. And who can ever forget at that point in time or at this point in time? I believe John Dean, of Watergate infamy, started the ball rolling, and everyone else picked it up. The phrase meant then, now, or today, but short words seldom pack the grandiloquence that gasbaggery demands. I dont seem to encounter many points in time today. What I do encounter is the insufferable use of the adjective incredible. It means unable to be believed. But its usually applied to events that clearly occurred before our very eyes, and are therefore completely credible. Finally, we have that obituary chestnut, He (or she) will be missed. Says who? Missed by whom? Be specific, cant you? The deceased man owed more than $800 to his drinking buddies at Pellanos Tavern. They will miss him. Thats how obits should read, dont you think?Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Words and phrases we dont needI read in the New York Times recently that the U.S. is facing a terrible shortage of doctors, partly because people like me are getting old and sick. We end up spending about a third of our overall health care resources in the last year of life, Dr. Jonathan Bergman of the University of California in Los Angeles told Reuters news service in 2010. That same year, Medicare paid $55 billion just for doctor and hospital bills during the last two months of patients lives, according to a 60 Minutes broadcast. So, Im offering to do my little part to alleviate the doctor shortage and the money crisis. If the government would let me, Id be happy to kill myself or better yet authorize a professional to do it as soon as a doctor I trust tells me Im terminally ill. I hate the thought of pointless pain and adult diapers. Ive had a heart attack, bypass surgery and a couple kinds of cancer so I know about pain. But in each case, the doctors were certain they could repair me, so the pain made sense. I know euthanasia (telling someone to inject you with the lethal drugs) and assisted suicide (taking the lethal drugs a doctor provided) are surrounded on all sides by slippery slopes. Opponents correctly point out that greedy kids or cocky doctors might pressure or dupe a dying person into making an early exit. I know that any piece of legislation, no matter how carefully crafted, cant address every contingency that might arise when a dying person contemplates euthanasia. But I do know that families, friends, medical professionals and euthanasia organizations already are helping suffering people take control of their deaths. Several European countries Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands allow active euthanasia. In 2011, 84 percent of Swiss voters opposed any ban on access to assisted suicide and 78 percent opposed banning foreigners access to such services. Why are the Europeans always so much more rational about social issues like this? Even in the United States, the practice is legal in Oregon, Washington and Montana though there are tough restrictions that would prevent me from rushing there to get the help I will want when Im dying. I have no doubt that euthanasia and assisted suicide will become increasingly accepted in the U.S. in the decades ahead. Floridas leaders could make a trying time for its elderly citizens a little less traumatic if they would at least adopt the euthanasia laws passed out West. I really wish politicians would hurry up. Im running out of time. I know that when a doctor tells me times up, that my family will do all they can to keep me comfortable. But even if Im doped up and pain free, I really dont want to endure those months of wasting away and having photos taken while you lie in bed and muster a wane smile for everyone. I would much prefer to spend a few weeks getting things organized and saying my goodbyes. Then I want to take control of the dying. Its my life. Its my body.If I want to spare myself and those I love months of useless pain and sadness, then I should be allowed to kill myself without a lot of legal debate and secrecy. And Ill get the satisfaction of knowing that Ive saved the taxpayers a nice piece of change.

If the track stays the way theyre calling it we will luck out as the majority of the strong winds will be blowing in an offshore direction, reducing the chance for major storm surge and beach erosion. Post-Isaac looks like it might be similar to Tropical Storm Debby in that the days following should be relatively calm, giving the waters a chance to clean up. Late last week we actually had some pretty decent weather for fishing; east winds allowed for near-shore waters to clean up and for the bait to stack up right against the shore. Pelicans could be seen working the swash channel aggressively as it has been loaded with small to medium-sized pilchards when the weather is right. Loading your bait wells with a few hundred of these little guys has been easy with a quarter inch cast net and can give you quite a few options. Targeting near shore structures and jetties we were able to catch flounder, trout and Spanish mackerel with good consistency. Full moon tides late week should set the stage for some good red fishing. Add in some extra water brought in by projected strong south winds and its time to beat those bushes. Like weve seen all summer, these full and new periods really have the reds pushing under the trees and the full moon especially has had them going on a strong feed the last couple of hours of the incoming tide and the first couple of hours of the outgoing tide. Best baits are cut pinfish and ladyfish chunks. Heres a tip: Try using a No. 2 split shot about 6 inches above your hook, this will ensure your bait stays where you put it. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Briey New owl on exhibit at Largo Nature ParkLARGO An owl was recently acquired and is on exhibit at the George C. McGough Nature Park, 11901 146th St. N. The juvenile female great horned owl has yet to receive a name. It was acquired through the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary in late July. The owl was found on the Fox Hollow Golf Course in Trinity with severe damage to one eye, rendering her partially blind. Barb Walker of the Clearwater Audubon Society rescued the owl and took it to the veterinary staff at Busch Gardens for medical attention. From there the owl was released to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, who then delivered the bird to McGough Nature Park. Because of the owls injury, she is no longer suited to live in the wild. She will remain in captivity at McGough and is considered a valuable resource for connecting the public with nature. When you are able to bring a live owl in to a teaching setting, it really reinforces the point of the lesson to the students, said Kyle Vogel in a press release. Vogel is a nature program specialist at the park. This owl unfortunately lacks the sense of vision, but that allows us to demonstrate to students how her other senses help compensate for this loss. When they arent on display in the park, the three owls now living at McGough Nature Park are available to travel to birthday parties in the nature center and to schools for programs that help students learn about owls and other wild animals found in Florida.Largo Recreation, Park, & Arts is currently asking the public to name this new female owl. Submissions are currently being collected on LargoNature.com. The top five names will be selected and posted on the Recreation, Parks and Arts Facebook Page for voting. The name with the most votes will win. The deadline for name submissions is Sept. 16.Weedon to host guided hikesST.

Gates will open at 2 p.m. Tickets start at $27. Visit ticketfly.com. The show also will feature performances by Matisyahu, Cypress Hill, Dirty Heads and Pepper. Sublime with Rome is a collaboration between Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh of Sublime and Rome Ramirez. Vocalist and guitarist Ramirez had previously performed with Wilson and Gaugh occasionally, including YouTubes Raw Session and an attempted Sublime reunion. It became clear that Ramirez would not be replacing Sublimes lead singer and guitarist, Bradley Nowell, who died in 1996. He would simply be featured with former Sublime members. Sublime with Rome performed their first gig together in February 2009 in Nevada, followed by Cypress Hills Smokeout Festival that October. TOP 5. from page 1BOpening this weekLawless follows Prohibition-era bootlegging brothers; family battles evil in The Possession Photo by RICHARD FOREMAN JR./SMPSP/WEINSTEIN COMPANYShia LaBeouf stars as Jack and Mia Wasikowska as Bertha in Lawless. Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:LawlessGenre: Drama Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska and Dane DeHaan Director: John Hillcoat Rated: R Acclaimed director John Hillcoat delivers a thrillingly vivid slice of American outlaw history in his epic gangster tale, Lawless. Lawless is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: three bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. Based on author Matt Bondurants fictionalized account of his family, The Wettest County in the World, the film gathers an ensemble of gifted, dynamic newgeneration stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan alongside two of the finest actors of their generations, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman. A riveting, intense story of crime and corruption, loyalty and love, brutality and tenderness, Lawless is a rich addition to the American gangster canon. In the mountains of Franklin County, Va., the Bondurant brothers are the stuff of legend. The eldest, Howard (Jason Clarke), managed to survive the carnage of the Great War, but he returned home unmoored by what he had seen and done. His brother Forrest (Tom Hardy) nearly died from the Spanish Flu that took his parents. He beat back death with a quiet strength and ferocious, visceral invincibility that came to define him. Jack (Shia LaBeouf) is the youngest sibling, impressionable, sensitive, smart. Times are tough and jobs are scarce, but the Bondurants are entrepreneurs and have built a thriving local business by concocting an intense and popular brand of moonshine. But Franklin Countys bootlegging days are about to end with the arrival of Special Deputy Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) from Chicago. The new law Rakes brings is lethal and corrupt and will challenge everything the brothers have built and represent. But while the rest of the county gives in to Rakes ruthless crackdown, the Bondurants will bow to no one. As the family rallies to fight Rakes, the fraternal dynamic shifts. Jacks ambitions and enterprises alter the balance of power between the brothers as he careens into manhood. Dreaming of expensive suits, fast cars and beautiful women, Jack starts his own bootlegging operation, with his friend Cricket (Dane DeHaan) helping him to soup up cars and build stills even against Forrests wishes. Jack starts to prosper, even selling his moonshine to Floyd Banner (Gary Oldman), the big city gangster he idolizes. The lives of the Bondurants are soon complicated by the appearance of two beautiful women: the exotic, steadfast Maggie (Jessica Chastain), who brings a secret past with her and catches the eye of the guarded Forrest and the quiet, pious Bertha (Mia Wasikowska), who slowly warms to Jacks charms and channels her own rebellious streak.The PossessionGenre: Horror Cast: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport and Natasha Calis Director: Ole Bornedal Rated: PG-13 Based on a true story, The Possession is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Ems behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a Dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The DayGenre: Action, horror and thriller Cast: Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Michael Eklund, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan and Shannyn Sossamon Director: Doug Aarniokoski Rated: RFive survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. The survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand for one more days survival. Fight or die.For a Good Time, Call ...Genre: Comedy Cast: Ari Graynor, Lauren Anne Miller, Justin Long, James Wolk and Mark Webber Director: Jamie Travis Rated: R Love and friendship are on the line in For A Good Time, Call directed by Jamie Travis from an original screenplay by Katie Anne Naylon and Lauren Anne Miller. Two young women come up short on the funds needed to live in New York City. Lauren Powell (Lauren Anne Miller), a reserved overachiever, is suddenly on her own after boyfriend Charlie (James Wolk) abruptly breaks up with her. Katie Steele (Ari Graynor), an irrepressible free spirit, is about to forfeit a dream residence unless she finds an apartment-mate. Their mutual best friend Jesse (Justin Long) has the bright idea that they room together, even though he well knows that they are polar opposites who haven't spoken since they met in college and then fell out within minutes. When Lauren and Katie meet up anew at Jesse's behest, they're still an at-odds couple ... Without options, Lauren reluctantly moves in. With nothing in common, she and Katie barely speak until Lauren discovers that Katie is working as a phonesex operator.
