By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE A candidates forum focusing on six area races will be held Thursday, Sept. 6, 6-8 p.m., at the Seminole Library Conference Center. Dr. Jim Sewell of St. Petersburg will moderate the event, sponsored by the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, the Womens Leadership Council and the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area. The format will be conversational with questions from the audience and members of the League. It wont be confrontational, said Roger Edelman, president of the Seminole Chamber. It wont be a debate. Were not interested in getting into the heat of the battle. Admission is free to the public. As a voter group, we need to turn out and support this, said Edelman. Among those committed to participate are the two finalists in the Pinellas Sheriffs race Republican Bob Gualtieri and Democrat Scott Swope. The lineup also will include Republican Larry Ahern and Democrat Mary Louise Ambrose in the State House of Representatives District 66 race and possibly Congressman Bill Young who is running against Democratic challenger Jessica Ehrlich of St. Petersburg. Young has not committed and according to federal election laws, Ehrlich cannot participate unless Young is there. Democrat Janet Long, a candidate for Pinellas County Commission at-large District 1, has committed to the event and her opponent, Republican Neil Brickfield, is tentatively scheduled to participate. Nancy Bostock, a candidate for County Commission at-large District 3, will participate but her opponent, Charlie Justice, had not committed earlier in the week.

According to Florida Highway Patrol trooper T.R. Crim, the driver of the Maxima, Helen Roop Falls of Redington Shores, was southbound on Seminole Boulevard when she ran a red light at 110th Avenue and collided with Alan Warner of Clearwater who was entering the intersection in the Nissan pickup truck. Both drivers were transported to Bayfront Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Each of the colleges eight campuses are employing the use of staff members as success coaches to help targeted students in any manner necessary to help their academic success. We want to make failure not happen, said Tonjua Williams, vice president for academic and student affairs at SPC. We want to be the solution to student success. The effort came about due to the colleges lower than normal graduation rate for first time/full-time students of about 29 percent, Seminole campus Provost Jim Olliver said. When you have that number finish, its not acceptable, said Olliver. With certain groups, like African-American males, its even lower. Olliver explained that the program is among new methods the college is using to connect with students to bring them in. Its a real good project, said Williams. Our values have changed as an institution to be more student success based. See SPC, page 4ASee Opening this week ... Page 3B.

The anhinga is a large bird about 35 inches in length with a wingspan of more than 3 feet. It often swims with only its head and neck above the water, giving it the common name of snakebird. The anhinga is protected in the United States under the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1918.Around Pinellas Dunedin gives OK for Gateway projectDUNEDIN The Dunedin City Commission on Aug. 23 voted 4-1 to approve the repositioning of the Gateway Redevelopment Project. Commissioner Julie Scales dissented. In the fall of 2006, the commission chose Pizzuti Builders LLC to develop the Gateway area, including property at Main Street and Skinner Boulevard, as a redevelopment project featuring retail, restaurants and medical office space. However, the economy soon turned sour, and over the last few years Pizzuti has tried to move in this direction but has faced major impediments due to the real estate market, economy and uncertainty in the health care field, according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. So far, the owner of Pizzuti has invested $1.3 million in the planned development of the Gateway site. The company has reassessed and brought before the commission a revised plan for the site, which features 138 upscale multi-family units on the Gateway and Jernigan tracts, as well as two restaurants and retail on the first floor. The citys own Economic Development Strategy Plan references the need for newer apartment rentals as a measure to attract working professionals, the memo said. Presently, Dunedins multi-family rental stock can be characterized as older, and not as attractive as newer products in surrounding areas such as Tampa, Clearwater, Palm Harbor and St. Petersburg. The project would target households as an urban living experience that would feature shopping, dining, entertainment and PSTA and Jolley Trolley transportation all within walking distance. The market segment Pizzuti is planning to attract is earlyto mid-singles, couples and married people from age 25 to 39 with a household income of $40,000 to $100,000. The apartments could also be used for 55-and-older people who want to downscale their housing, either on a full-time or seasonal basis. I think its wonderful, said Commissioner Julie Ward Bujalski. Interestingly enough, the location of it, our trolley stops right there which would be perfect. And you have a regular bus stop. You do have literally the whole transit system right there. So hopefully we can encourage the residents there to use them. Commissioner Ron Barnette said he feels this project symbolizes the gateway area, captures the pedestrian feel and sets the feel and ambiance going into Dunedin and downtown. He added that this project could also serve as a model for development in other parts of town as well. Bob Ironsmith, economic development director for the city, said the goal is to not build so much that it takes away from downtown, but to add just the right balance and enticement. Mayor Dave Eggers said that he understands that the economy made it difficult to do the original plan and that it is necessary to be flexible and move with the times. Ironsmith said that forward movement on the project will now be dictated by various approvals, but other than that, it is ready to go. He said building could commence by early 2013 if not the end of 2012. Alexandra LundahlIRB to pursue claim for oil spillINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Indian Rocks Beach commissioners have decided to see if they might have a claim against the BP oil company because of the oil spill in the Gulf in 2010. The commission gave City Attorney Maura Kiefer the authority to negotiate a contract with the law firm Motley Rice of Charleston, S.C. Kiefer is to have a contract ready for approval at the Commissions meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The issue of choosing a law firm to represent the city arose two weeks ago when Tampa lawyer Christa Collins approached the commission on behalf of Penton law firm of Louisiana and suggested the city might have claims against BP for lost revenue because of the spill. At that time Vice Mayor Terry Hamilton-Wollin suggested the commission hear from local lawyer Rick Kriseman on behalf of the Motley Rice firm as well. At the commission meeting on Aug. 28 commissioners heard the Motley Rice presentation and despite the recommendation by City Attorney Kiefer that they go with the Penton group, commissioners unanimously agreed to engage Motley Rice if a favorable contract could be worked out. Hamilton-Wollin said the difference for her was that attorney Kriseman was local. He has an office just a couple of miles away, she said. And he has staff on the ground to work with. For me this is a no-brainer. Other commissioners agreed with HamiltonWollin, but Mayor R.B. Johnson threw in a note of caution. Im concerned with their contract because if we pulled out of an arrangement with them then we would have to pay, he said. Im also concerned about possibly having to pay some expenses. I cant go with this text. In the end a resolution was fashioned to authorize Kiefer to negotiate a new contract. The issue of making a claim against BP came up some time ago but was squelched when City Manager Chuck Coward suggested the city really did not suffer any losses because of the spill. Resident Kelly Cisarik, who said she was against proceeding with any lawsuit, voiced that feeling. I didnt see any oil on our beaches, she said. Damage was minimal and indirect. It is fundamentally wrong to do this. Brian Goff Belleview Biltmore gets historical exemptionBELLEAIR Before a packed Town Hall, Belleair commissioners voted to give the Belleview Biltmore hotel the historical property tax exemption that the prospective new owners asked for. But it wasnt a slam-dunk; the vote was close, 3-2 in favor on first reading of the exemption, and it came after two hours of discussion and debate. The Aug. 21 meeting was held on a stormy night, but that didnt stop the crowd from showing up to plead for and against the ordinance granting the exemption. In fact there was standing room only. The crowd appeared split down the middle, for and against the ordinance. There was no shortage of speakers, 23 people weighed in on the issue. Resident Laurie Adams cautioned the commissioners to follow the law. You are not here to determine whether or not the hotel will be viable in the future, she said. You are here to do what the law tells you to do. Resident Jim White urged the commissioners to look to the future. For the good of our children I urge you to do what you have to do to modify the ordinance to protect the hotels future, he said. While resident Cecil Rose took the opposite view. There is no reason to subsidize a commercial property, he said. Any fire marshal would condemn the place. It is not our business to determine if the hotel is viable. Then it was the commissioners turn to have their say before the vote. Commissioner Tom Shelly proposed the motion to support the ordinance and grant the tax exemption. Any town would be happy to have a $125 million investment. And we dont have to grant the tax abatement until the certificate of occupancy, he said. Mayor Gary Katica spoke next and he made it clear where he stood. I am fundamentally against putting public money into private enterprise, he said. There are towns all over this country going bankrupt. I have to look at that. I have no interest other than whats best for the town. He then said he didnt believe the deal would die without the tax abatement. I believe these people will go ahead with this whether we grant the exemption or not, he said. And we wont have to worry about 10 years and millions of dollars. Vice Mayor Stephen Fowler said passing the ordinance would just allow the process to move forward. Remember this is just first reading of the bill; we will have a chance for another crack at it, he said. This is just part of the process. Commissioner Michael Wilkinson reminded the crowd that the commissioners just want to do whats best. There is no villain here, he said. No matter what we decide were going to tick off half the people. It will be the bank which will decide if these people are going to get the money, and if they dont this will be a moot point. Finally, Commissioner Kevin Piccarreto spoke. All through the process he has been the most vocal, particularly in looking for financial information from the buyers. If this were a true public-private partnership then we would have a right to ask for that financial information, he said. We didnt get it and I dont believe were going to get it. I dont believe this ordinance protects the citizens of Belleair. We need more transparency in this matter. I do not support it. Moments later his vote confirmed his words. Piccarreto was joined by Mayor Katica voting against granting the tax exemption. Fowler, Shelley and Wilkinson voted for it. There are still details of the exemption to be worked out and negotiated but as it stands the exemption kicks in three years after construction plans are approved. It would then last for 10 years and would exempt property taxes up to 100 percent of the money spent on improvements of the property. That amount has been estimated to be $76 million and would translate into a $416,000 per year saving to the owners, or over $4 million over the 10-year period. Brian GoffBudget for bridge bait house, bathrooms cut nearly in halfBELLEAIR BLUFFS An initial plan by the county to spend $1.4 million for a bait shop and restrooms on the Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge has since been cut back to $750,000. Belleair Bluffs Public Works Director Robert David announced at the Aug. 20 City Commission meeting that a number of construction compromises will need to be made to meet the new spending figure. Fishermen, boaters and bridge visitors have been asking for a bait house, which would also have light food and snacks available, since the old one was torn down when construction began on the new bridge in 2007. A plan for a mobile bait shop, to serve until funding was available for a permanent structure, was turned down by the city in January of 2011 as not meeting code requirements in a coastal hazard zone. Portable toilets have provided the only bathroom facilities on the bridge. David was reporting on a recent meeting with county officials he and City Clerk Debra Sullivan attended along with Public Works Commissioner Suzy Sofer. He said compromises on the roof, elevator and elimination of a kitchen for the bait house were discussed at the session. There was talk of providing a lift for the handicapped instead of an elevator and temporary bathrooms that would be joined together to look permanent, David said. The restrooms would be attractive-looking stucco, he said, and Sofer described them as a huge step up from the Portalets. The commission agreed to tell the county to move ahead with the bathrooms separately. There are also bathroom facilities planned for inside the bait house. Plans for the scaled-down project will have to be redrawn and approved by the commission, David indicated. More details will be made available at next months commission workshop meeting. Commissioner Jack Nazario urged residents to come to that session and give their opinions on the plans. He mentioned especially those whose condos on the Intracoastal would overlook the bait shop. David was asked if the $1.4 million figure, which was reduced, represented todays construction costs, which would presumably be lower than when the original figure was first announced. The number is todays cost with construction as it is today, he said. Mayor Chris Arbutine said plans for the scaledback bait house and restrooms should be looked at favorably as it is better to get something rather than nothing. The bathrooms are a necessity to replace those Porta Potties, and the bait house is a necessity for the community, Arbutine said. Wayne Ayers Were on your team! The Beacon 397-5563

It was a rare occasion that he didnt have ready answers to questions about anything related to public works or transportation in Pinellas County and beyond. Pete Yauch, director of Transportation and Stormwater, is taking a months vacation and then moving on to take a job with a consulting firm in Tampa that specializes in traffic signal operations and safety. His last day as a Pinellas County employee was Aug. 24. Yauch said he has enjoyed his time at the county. It has been a positive experience, he said by email on his last day on the job. The St. Petersburg native began his career as a county employee in 2004 and served as director of transportation until 2007. Then he moved up the ladder to the position of assistant county administrator. He was responsible for supervising public works, planning and building departments, development and review services, St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and the Economic Development Coordination Team. In the past four years, he served as director of transportation and public works and then director of stormwater and transportation when his title changed as part of a consolidation of departments that resulted in the countys new department of environment and infrastructure. Yauch talked about some great transportation projects that have been implemented in Pinellas over the past decade, including the Belleair Beach Causeway, the extension of Belcher Road up to Klosterman Road and two projects nearing completion, Keystone Road and Bryan Dairy Road. In addition, our Intelligent Transportation System has significantly improved travel along the corridors where it has been implemented and that implementation will continue along additional roads in the future, he said. Yauch is an expert in traffic and traffic management. Before taking a job at the county, he was practice leader for traffic engineering and intelligent transportation system for a company in Tampa. Prior to that, he was regional vice president for a company that held the consulting contract for the countywide traffic signal system head replacement and wide area network project in Pinellas. He served as city traffic engineer and assistant director of public works for the city of Clearwater from 1991 to 1994 and assistant district traffic operations engineer and district signal systems engineer for the Florida Department of Transportation from 1988 to 1991. He was president and principal engineer at Gray-Yauch and Associates in Atlanta, Ga., from 1985 to 1988. He worked for an Atlanta firm as traffic engineer and senior traffic engineer from 1977 to 1985. His earliest experience came as a graduate research assistant at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta from 1976 to 1977. He received his bachelors in civil engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1976 and his masters degree in 1977. Hes a fellow and member of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and past president of the Florida Section. He also is a member of the Florida Engineering Society and International Municipal Signal Association.One hundred years of improvementsTampa Bay Newspapers has been publishing a series of articles to mark the countys centennial and asked Yauch to share his knowledge of events before he moved on to a job in the private sector. There have definitely been a lot of transportation changes and improvements over the last 100 years, he said. When the county was formed (in 1912), railroads and waterways were the main transportation modes into St. Petersburg, he said. Yauch highlighted some of the transportation milestones, including the Orange Belt Railroad that ran to St. Petersburg in 1888 and later became the Atlantic Coast Line. The Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad started operations in St. Petersburg in 1914 and later became the Seaboard Railway. Now, a lot of the tracks have been converted into trails and there are only two freight trains a day that travel through the county, Yauch said. St. Petersburg had streetcars from 1903 to 1949. Now, were looking at building a modern-day equivalent light rail, he said. The first commercial air service in the country started in St. Petersburg in 1914 with regular flights to Tampa. The first Gandy Bridge opened in 1924, and the Courtney Campbell Causeway was opened in 1934. A ferryboat ran from Pinellas Point to Manatee County from 1926 until the first Skyway Bridge opened in 1954. It was the Skyway that really started the growth of Pinellas County, Yauch said.Looking aheadYauch said there is a lot more that needs to be done in Pinellas County. Some of the major projects under way include Florida Department of Transportation projects on U.S. 19, Curlew Road to Park Boulevard; 118th Avenue Freeway, future State Road 690; Roosevelt Boulevard realignment and the Bayway Bridge replacements, as well as county road projects on Keystone Road, U.S. 19 to East Lake; and Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey to 72nd Avenue. Dunedin Causeway will need to be replaced in the next decade, Yauch said. We have a lot of infrastructure that was constructed during the rapid growth of the 1960s and 1970s that is getting old and will need replacement. We continue to have traffic safety concerns with about 15,000 injuries and 100 fatalities every year in the county. And although we have had a recent downturn in traffic volumes due to the economy, we will still need to address recurring congestion problems in the future. Pete YauchExtension Office celebrates 150 yearsOne hundred and fifty years ago, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law the land grant university system that set the stage for Extension outreach education to local communities. This law directed states to create institutions of higher learning for the study of agricultural science and engineering, providing 30,000 acres of public land to each state for that purpose. Land grant universities support outreach activities through their Extension Services. The University of Florida has 67 county Extension offices throughout the state; Pinellas County Extension is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road next to Heritage Village in Largo.

4A SEB Beacon, September 6, 2012The college uses what it calls an early alert system that depends on instructors alerting one of about 200 success coaches about a particular issue a student may be experiencing. It might involve a student who has suddenly stopped attending class or a student that is experiencing an academic issue, requiring tutoring or just additional attention. Or it could be something like a lack of career focus or even a transportation issue. Out of nearly 7,000 students enrolled at the Seminole campus, about 660 have been targeted since the start of school three weeks ago. We want to adopt a working model on the fly and bring them back, said Patrick McGough, a senior instructional specialist and adjunct professor at the Seminole campus. We want to get to students before they fall into that area of dread and despair. At a Welcome Back celebration Aug. 29 on the Seminole campus, Nancy Kelley, associate provost for health education, was in charge of a large mural students were signing to pledge their commitment to finish their education. A few feet away, members of the schools Student Government Association were working hard to get students involved in various campus activities. The school places a high priority on this avenue of college life because they believe it coincides with retention. We know the more you get involved in campus life, the more successful youre going to be, said Olliver.

Constitutional law attorney to speak at SPCSEMINOLE Eleven years after the 9/11 attacks, a nationally acclaimed constitutional law attorney will explore how the response of Americas leaders to this and other national crises have impacted constitutional liberties in a multi-media presentation at St. Petersburg College. Barry Richard, a Tallahassee lawyer who successfully led the legal defense team of George W. Bush in the contested 2000 presidential election, will speak on Security, Pseudo-Patriotism and the Erosion of American Liberties on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 6 to 8 p.m., in the Conference Center at the Seminole campus of SPC, 9200 113th St. N. His presentation is an examination of legislation proposed and passed in the name of national security from the nations founding to the post9/11 era, with references to the writ of habeas corpus adapted by the Founding Fathers from 17th Century England. The program is the second in St. Petersburg Colleges new Village Square initiative, a town hall-type policy forum that explores topical issues over dinner, in an atmosphere free of political rancor or partisanship. The Village Square is sponsored by SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Co-sponsoring this presentation are The Tampa Bay Times, WUSF Public Media, and WEDU. Richard was named one of two Lawyers of the Year in 2001 by the National Law Journal, which also recognized him as one of the Most Influential Lawyers in America. He has been referred to as a lawyer with the power to shape public affairs, launch industries, shake things up and get things done. In representing Bush in the 2000 presidential election litigation, he managed 46 lawsuits and personally argued several critical cases on behalf of Bush. Under both Republican and Democratic administrations, he has been retained as special counsel to the Florida governor, the Florida Senate, the Florida House, Florida attorney general, secretary of state and Department of Insurance, among others. Tickets for the event are $30 for Village Square members or $40 for nonmembers. Advance registration and payment are required, at spcollege. edu/solutions. Barry Richard Welcoming the two newest members to O-Town Sound Chorus is Director Kay Webb, center, with Connie Harr of Seminole, left, and Alicia Page of Tuckahoe.Distance is no problem for singer from SeminoleSEMINOLE How far would you travel to sing with an award-winning chorus? It appears that distance and traffic is no problem for a Seminole woman who is one of two new members of the O-Town Sound Chorus in Orlando. Connie Harr of Seminole thinks nothing of traveling the two hours necessary to get to practice. She joins Alicia Page of Tuckahoe, Fla., near Inglis, who drives about 90 minutes to practice sessions. Harr, a Sweet Adeline member for over 26 years, moved to Florida two years ago after retiring from AT&T in the Chicago area, where she belonged to the Choral-Aires chorus near the suburb of Elmhurst. Harr competed with that chorus in Houston, Texas, last October when it captured a 10th place finish in the Sweet Adelines International competition. She flew twice a month to practice with the chorus over the past two years so she could attend the competition and then focused on joining a Florida Sweet Adelines chapter. I visited several Sweet Adelines choruses in the Florida area and liked O-Town Sound the best, said Harr. I dont mind the drive to be able to do something I really like. Harr leaves her home as early as 2:30 p.m. on Mondays to make the drive to OTS rehearsals in Orlando, stopping along the way to eat dinner. She is usually the first person to arrive at practices, beating out local members who live 10 minutes away. O-Town Sound is a newly formed chapter of Sweet Adelines International, having only received their charter last October after passing a stringent list of criteria. The group consists of women from 13 counties from coast to coast including: Ocoee, Orlando, Dunnellon, Gotha, Apopka, Melbourne, Kissimmee, Sanford, Oviedo The Villages, Davenport, Crystal River, New Smyrna Beach, Leesburg, Winter Garden, Groveland, Lake Mary, Oak Hill, and Tavares. The group captured a second place finish in the Sweet Adelines Atlantic-Gulf Region 9 Regional Competition in April in the small chorus category where they competed for the very first time. The annual competition included more than 1,000 women singers from choruses throughout Florida, as well as Georgia and South Carolina. The choruses are judged for their sound, music, expression and showmanship. Since 1945, Sweet Adelines International has promoted four-part harmony music in the barbershop style for women of all ages. Currently membership includes women in all 50 states in the U.S., and 14 nations including Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Scotland, Sweden and the Netherlands. OTS rehearses every Monday from 7 to 10 p.m. The venue is accessible from the turnpike, I-4, the East-West Expressway and the Beachline Expressway. Guests are welcome anytime.

As part of a scheduled replacement, the City Council approved spending up to $15,000 from the Capital Improvement Fund Aug. 28 for the purchase of six stationary bicycles. The action is part of the citys 5-year equipment replacement schedule and the amount is included in the current city budget. In other action, councilors: Approved an extension through Oct. 1, 2013 of the interlocal agreement with Pinellas County for maintenance of traffic control signals within the city limits. The agreement includes preventative maintenance and repairs due to breakdowns or malfunctions at a cost of $91,037 a year. Approved a 1-year extension through Sept. 30, 2013 to the emergency medical services ALS first responder agreement with Pinellas County. The city provides first responder service to residents of the city of Seminole and nonresidents of outlying areas who live within the Seminole Fire District, as well as shared service with the city of Madeira Beach to Redington Beach, North Redington Beach and Redington Shores. Approved a 1-year extension through Sept. 30, 2013 with the Pinellas County Fire Protection Authority to provide fire protection services to areas of unincorporated Seminole within the Seminole Volunteer Fire Control District. Approved spending $142,000 with Mason/Blau and Associates for design development and the construction document phase of the Community Building project. The amount is included in the current city budget. The project includes the redesign and renovation of 15,329 square feet of the former Public Works headquarters at Seminole City Park, 7464 Ridge Road. Approved a one-day permit to serve alcoholic beverages on Thursday, Oct. 18 during the annual Seminole Chamber of Commerce golf tournament at Seminole Lake Country Club. Approved an amendment to the agreement with St. Petersburg College and Oasis Refreshment Systems for food service at the Seminole Library.

The concept includes a new city hall and fire station, plus a multi-purpose building not included in previous designs for the site. Cost to complete the project is estimated to be $6.7 million. A renovation of the current city hall would cost about $3 million, the commission recently learned. An overall master plan for the complex, which also includes public green space and amenities on the water, was presented by Lisa Wannemacher, president of Wannemacher Jensen Architects, Inc. The design takes full advantage of the civic centers waterfront location, she said. The plan was presented as a starting point, subject to revision based upon further input from city staff and the public. Wannemacher focused on the city hall, which she described as not just a replacement city hall, but a building designed for the future, which provides flexibility as you grow and your needs change. The building design is very efficient, she said. We skimmed out all the fat, making it easier to construct, less expensive to build, and easier to maintain, Wannemacher said. A drawing of the buildings interior showed employee offices lined up on the water, giving each a view. Work station cubicles can be reconfigured and reorganized as needed, Wannemacher said. The commission chambers, which she called the most important area, will be front and center in the building. Three conference rooms will provide meeting space. Vehicular traffic for the fire station will be separated from the public traffic, entering and leaving the complex, providing greater safety for pedestrians and drivers. The fire station is designed to be constructed in stages, allowing it to remain in operation during construction, Wannemacher said. The multi-purpose building and grounds is a new feature not included in previous designs for a municipal complex. The concept is a public space or town square on the water, Wannemacher said. A large multi-purpose room will be fronted by a waterfront terrace. The space will contain tables, a lobby area and greeter station, offering plenty of room for public gatherings. Where the city hall and multi-purpose room come together will be a large civic plaza. The plaza features a large public deck space on the water, a portion of which will be shaded, Wannemacher said. A picnic shelter, lawns, public deck space and restroom facilities complete the public use area. All of the buildings will be green, and as multipurpose and flexible as possible so they can be reprogrammed and reorganized as needed, Wannemacher said. They will be designed for low operational costs, so they can be staffed by as few people as possible. The city hall building will contain 9,500 square feet, the multi-purpose building 8,050 square feet, and the fire station space will be 7,900 square feet. Mark Stalker of Hennessy Construction Services presented a detailed cost analysis of the construction costs of the project. The total project amount ranges from $5.7 to $6.7 million, with the city hall costing a minimum of $1.7 million, the fire station $1.3 million and the multi-purpose building $1.1 million. Site preparation work, including demolition of present structures, landscaping and irrigation would be approximately $1.6 million. Vice Mayor Robin Vander Velde, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Mayor Travis Palladeno, did not care for the contemporary look of the preliminary city hall design. It looks very Spartan, she said.Beach Art Center expands class offeringsINDIAN ROCKS BEACH The Beach Art Centers new schedule of classes for 2012-13 offers new instructors and art media as the center looks forward to the return of many of its seasoned faculty members.

According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, deputies responded to a report of property damage about 5:21 p.m. at 106 161st Ave. in Redington Beach following reports that a full-sized 2006 Ford pickup truck, travelling swiftly, had struck a mailbox and left the scene. A deputy in the area, spotted a vehicle matching the description of the truck, and attempted a traffic stop. The suspect vehicle failed to stop and fled at a high rate of speed. According to deputies, additional reports were received in reference to other hit and run crashes in the area of Boca Ciega Drive in Madeira Beach, with a similar description to the Ford pickup. The truck was subsequently spotted by other deputies in the area of Boca Ciega Drive and Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach. Deputies said that when the suspect vehicle observed the deputies, the driver, later identified as 16-year-old Christopher Nhat Nguyen of Pinellas Park, spun the truck around and went up onto a landscaped area and into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven. The deputy approached the truck with his cruiser in an attempt to pin the door. The suspect vehicle then backed up to get away, but the truck hooked on to the bush guard of the cruiser, dragging it approximately 5 feet. Deputies said at that point Nguyen and two occupants, identified as 16-year-old Osmany Aleman of Pinellas Park and 15-year-old Rithysand Marvin Phoeuk of St. Petersburg, bailed from the car. All three were apprehended shortly thereafter. Deputies said Aleman was located swimming in the canal behind the 7-Eleven. Deputies determined the Ford pickup truck had been reported stolen out of Pinellas Park and that property was also recovered in the vehicle that did not belong to the vehicle owner. They also said that earlier, a deputy had observed Aleman driving the pick-up truck. Nguyen was arrested and charged with auto theft, driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license, hit and run, obstruction and violation of probation. Aleman was charged with auto theft, driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license, obstruction and violation of probation. Phoeuk was charged with obstruction and violation of probation. All three were taken to a local hospital for medical clearance and subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Juvenile Assessment Center. The investigation continues.

While it wont be official until the board takes a formal vote, School Board members unanimously supported Gregos selection, school officials said in a news release. At a workshop Aug. 28 they discussed a process for his likely hiring. Gregos track record, passion and knowledge of the district set him apart, according to School Board members, who unanimously made the decision in less than an hour. Grego, associate professor at the University of Central Florida, previously served as superintendent for the Osceola County School District and as Floridas Interim Chancellor of K-12 Education. Board members plan to hold a public meet and greet with Grego on Sept. 10, and, if that goes well, they plan to initiate the process of negotiating a contract on Sept. 11. The board could vote on a contract at the Sept. 25 School Board meeting The School Board took a quick break during the Aug. 28 workshop so that Board Chairperson Robin Wikle could inform Grego of the boards decision. She returned to say Grego was very thankful and full of joy regarding the news. Grego lives in St. Cloud. He was assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction November 2002 to June 2008 in the Hillsborough County school district. Among his awards, he was superintendent of the year for Florida 20092010 Statewide Award from Fine Arts Educators promoting art. Asked recently by Tampa Bay Newspapers why he was attracted to the Pinellas County job, Grego said I have lived most of my life in the Tampa Bay area and know that the best way to preserve the quality of life that exists in Pinellas County and to make it even better is to build the very best public education system possible to benefit not just our parents and students but also our businesses and all of our residents. The board decided July 17 to interview Grego, Dr. Constance Jones and Dr. Christian Cutter after meeting for about three hours with Florida School Board Association Executive Director Wayne Blanton, who conducted the search for a new superintendent. The board had whittled down the list of 50 applicants before deciding to interview the three, leaving open the possibility of using a search firm to bring in more applicants if the board was not comfortable with Grego, Jones or Cutter. The new superintendent will succeed John Stewart, who plans to retire in December.

County residents are celebrating again 100 years later at Pinewood Cultural Park, Sept. 14-16. The kick-off event is an invitation-only Centennial Ball on Friday, Sept. 14, at the Florida Gulf Coast Center for Fishing. Key dignitaries have been invited to dress up in their angler attire to kick off the weekend of celebration. On Saturday, Sept. 15, everyone is invited to come out for the Fish 5K and 1-mile Fun Run at Walsingham Park, 12620 102nd Ave. N., Seminole.

Espaillat said the Florida Gulf Coast Center for Fishing had asked to sponsor the countys centennial celebration. She said budget problems had prevented the county from being able to fund an event, so we asked if we could host it. This is great for us, she said. People can come and see who we are and what we do. The Fishing Center, which moved into the former Gulf Coast Museum of Art building in May, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching children after life through fishing, to providing a center for activity for the local marine community and to commemorating the past, present and future of fishing on Floridas Gulf Coast. The center is part of the countys new history, having opened in January of the centennial year. Fishing has been a huge part of the countys history, Espaillat said. We think it fits (to host the celebration). It makes sense.

The three groups recently combined efforts on a Habitat project in India that Oldanie participated in.New rules for gas stationsDisabled residents now can call for assistance By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Americans with Disabilities Act requires gas stations, including those with self-service, to provide equal access for their customers with disabilities. Honking, signaling by flashing lights and waving are among the established methods disabled people can use to get help at gas stations throughout the United States. But in Pinellas, they also can call a specified phone number and, unless only one person is on duty, an employee must come out and provide assistance at the pump. Pinellas County Commissioners approved an amendment to a section of an ordinance relating to refueling assistance for persons with disabilities Aug. 21. The matter first came to the commission on July 24, but due to concerns voiced by Ben Fitter, advocacy director for Florida Gulf Coast Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Rev. Robert Swick of the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance and resident Angel Watson, commissioners tabled the matter. The group was concerned about requirements for signage where it would be placed, as well as making sure that everyone would continue to have equal access even those without a phone. The group met with Paul Valenti, director of Pinellas County Office of Human Rights; Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services; and Michelle Wallace, senior assistant county attorney, to find common ground. Staff presented a newly worded ordinance to the commission Aug. 21, which Valenti said addressed the concerns of all parties. However, the group still disagreed, especially with the proposed wording on the sign that said honk, signal or call for assistance. Ritter and Swick said the language was offensive and wanted to remove honk and signal. They also said it was annoying when people honked for assistance as it disturbs other customers. Watson insisted that all methods be on the signs to make it clear that a person didnt have to call to get help. Prior agreement on placement on the sign also seemed to go south after requests from at least one gas station operator that rules be less stringent and suggested that signs also could be placed on the columns near the pumps instead of the pumps themselves. After much debate, the commission approved a combination of staffs recommendations and revisions from the audience. The required signs, with phone numbers to call, also will include information on where to report instances of noncompliance with the new rules. Gas retailers can be found in violation of the countys ordinance if they do not prominently display a sign, decal or sticker with required information. Failure to assist any driver of a motor vehicle properly displaying an exemption parking permit or vehicle license designating the driver as disabled, unless there is only one employee on duty at the time the assistance is requested, also is in violation of the law.

Appointed Commissioner Susan Latvala as the countys representative to a 23-county consortium looking at distribution of funds from the Gulf Oil Spill Restore Act.Elections Office explains glitch on Primary night By SUZETTE PORTERLARGO Everything was working as intended. No real problems reported at polling places during the primary Election Day Aug. 14. The polls opened at 7 a.m. and closed at 7 p.m. without a hitch. Soon after, Elections officials knew there was a problem. Polling locations were unable to dial-in to send their ballots for counting. We realized that we had an equipment issue about 7:10, 7:15 (p.m.), Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark said later that night. The 51 election advisers in charge of collecting the ballots and electronic results in USB drives were asked to deliver everything to the Elections Service Center in Largo something they would have done anyway, Clark said. The USB drives were then uploaded into the system on-site, instead of remotely. Officials estimated that the glitch in the system delayed the results by only a couple of hours. It was the first time since the system was put into place in 2008 that ballot results could not be electronically transferred. Wednesday, the hunt began to determine what happened. Nine days later, Clark released the results of the investigation. She said the countys Business Technology Services Department was asked to help uncover the root cause of the modeming issue, which was explained by BTS Executive Director Paul Alexander. When attempting to upload the election results from the 234 ballot scanners at the polling places to the main servers, a hardware failure occurred on a telecommunications gateway device that prevented the upload from occurring, Alexander said. Alexander said prior to the election, the system had been tested and found to be in working order. It is unknown if the failure was due to a manufacturing defect or a result of a momentary power interruption that occurred earlier in the day, he said. The defective unit has since been replaced and an additional backup was ordered. Alexander said a third unit also is available at the Clearwater Courthouse in the event that telecommunications systems need to be redirected. These steps increase the level of redundancies as well as plans to additional testing will help avoid this type of issue in future elections, he said. At the Aug. 21 Pinellas County Commission meeting, a citizen brought up a concern of possible ballot tampering since the results were driven in instead of being electronically transferred from the polling places. Nancy Whitlock, Elections Administrator, explained the process to help people understand that ballot tampering was not a real possibility. First, the USB drives are transported in sealed pouches. Each USB drive records the serial number of the DS 200 ballot scanners in which it was used. Elections staff verifies the serial number from each USB drive against the list of ballot scanners for the election and confirms that they match and that all are accounted for. In addition, the county canvassing board conducted a post-election manual audit in which a race was selected at random, and ballots from 2 percent of precincts selected at random for that race were manually counted to verify that the tabulation results matched the votes on the actual ballots, she said. As posted to our website, the post-election audit results were perfect. Clark said she believes the problem is resolved. We appreciate the services of the countys BTS department, Clark said. And we are confident that this matter is resolved moving forward. Election results as well as the post-election manual audit report are available at www.votepinellas.com. Citizens with questions or concerns can call 464-6788.Gracies Big Splash is biggest ever By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR It was an event that had Belleair Mayor Gary Katica strolling around saying over and over, What a night, what a night. The event was Gracies Big Splash on Aug. 17. It was the sixth annual event, so one might think Katica had seen it all before. But not like this one. By all accounts, this was the biggest and best ever. Gracie Purdy died six years ago, just shy of her sixth birthday. She had an incurable cancer. It is in her name and honor that the Big Splash was begun by her parents because she loved the water so much. In fact, she went to the first big splash just months before she died. Her mom, Llisiana Purdy, in an interview last year, recalled holding Gracie that day. I held her in my arms the entire time, Llisiana said. We did everything together. If she got wet, I got wet. Mrs. Purdy agreed that this year the Splash was bigger than ever. But it also held a special meaning for her. This is the sixth Splash, she passed away just three months shy of her sixth birthday, she said. It would have been wonderful to celebrate this with her because this is the way we would have celebrated her birthday. Hundreds of people showed up to help celebrate this year. There were more waterslides than ever before, a new bungee trampoline experience for which the lines were the longest and a new raffle room with donated gifts from all over the community. Yet, the water games were still the most popular. Resident Kris Ellis just moved to Belleair with her family. She spoke while her 6-year-old son Gavin was sliding on his belly in the water nearby. This is our first time here, she said. Weve known about this and we are excited to come. My son keeps saying it is awesome and it is. Well be back. Across the field, 9-year-old Lexi Spencer of Clearwater was going up and down on the bungee trampoline. Her mom, Lori, was another first-timer. This is very cool, Lori said. Weve tried to come here for years and we finally made it. The kids are having a blast. Walking the grounds nonstop was Gracies dad, Marty Purdy. He was selling raffle tickets, helping fix a broken plug and generally making sure things were going well. When asked if he was happy with the event, his answer came easy. Oh yes, are you kidding me? he said There is a lot of work that goes into this, but it is worth it when you look around and see all these kids having so much fun. For the Purdy family, however, the Big Splash brings back into focus memories of their daughter. It has its moments, Marty said. There are fewer and fewer of them, but we have found a purpose in this. We are celebrating her, were not mourning her.

He is a Parson Russell Terrier who was rescued from a puppy mill in Sarasota in May. He grew up in horrible conditions in a cage with very little human contact, so he is still timid. However, he has made great progress and now allows people to pick him up out of his crate and is learning to trust and like people. Junior weighs about 15 pounds and would do best in a home with no other dogs, or with dogs that are shy and sweet like him. He exhibits fear in the yard with other dogs, so he gets bullied. He walks well on a leash but is timid with passing cars and likes to stay close to you. He needs a patient owner who gives a lot of positive reinforcement. He would be fine in an apartment, as he enjoys quiet, cozy environments. Call Suncoast Animal League at 786-1330.Pet of the week

Huge swells and a stout south wind really muddied the near-shore waters; all that dirty water has been making its way inside the passes on the incoming tide. The key to success this past week was to get away from all that dirty water and to capitalize on the extra water brought in by the south wind. Redfish numbers are increasing after each big moon phase. More and more reds can be targeted on the shallow grass flats throughout the county. Last weeks mid-morning incoming tides had the schools of redfish hanging near mangrove shoreline points as they awaited the flood stage of the tide that will allow them to push way back into the mangrove root system, where they could feed as well as cool off. Approach each point with ease and caution. Redfish will often give you some sort of sign; usually it will be a flash or a noticeable push of water. Work the schools with gold spoons and soft plastic jigs on an 8-ounce head. Good places to target would be the no-motor-zone flats north of the Memorial Causeway and the adjacent spoil islands on the lower tidal stages. Late summer offers us the opportunity to target fish that can often be larger than the angler pursuing them. Big sharks and tarpon are aAvoid post-Isaac murky waters; redfish numbers on the increasebig part of what Florida fishing is all about, whether youre fishing day or night these bruisers can often be found roaming the same waters. Deep backwater holes along the Intracoastal Waterway as well as many spots inside of Tampa Bay are holding some nice tarpon and plenty of bull sharks. Large cut baits such as mullet or mackerel fished on the bottom will attract both species. Look for the tarpon to be rolling whenever the wind goes slack; dont chase the fish around too much, just set out baits where youve seen a couple of fish roll and wait for the bite.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Would you care for another salty cracker?When people use a particular space, like a busy college campus, it isnt surprising to see them moving around a lot. Some movements are regular, like predictable surges to the Student Commons around lunchtime and between buildings as students head to their next class. Professors move from solitary office work to staff meetings or social hours to greet new students. There are many reasons why individuals move about space; understanding their moves means understanding them. But when you run into someone several times, you have to wonder if its accidental. The dolphins we monitor in the waters around Johns Pass also move around their watery spaces. Although we typically encounter each dolphin once during a survey of the study area, which we conduct to see if Johns Pass causeway construction changed the dolphins behavior, we sometimes see a particular dolphin more than once. We call this a resight. Resights are always fun because theyre a privileged peek into how a dolphin spends its day, which is more informative than a single snapshot. A snapshot of a professor working alone in the office, for example, is less informative than seeing him or her work alone in the morning, meet with students after lunch and saunter to the Commons for a late dinner. Similarly, seeing a dolphin having breakfast in a lone lagoon is less informative than seeing that dolphin having breakfast, snoozing at midday and socializing with other dolphins at dusk. Capt. John Heidemann and I cover a systematic path of water in a systematic way, so any dolphin we resight must occur along our routine route. I wonder how much dolphins know (or think) about our habits and if they ever use that knowledge intentionally. One thick day in August, we found local lady Club in the northern part of the study area, as we have intermittently since she returned this spring and gave birth to calf Cracker in April. Club is shy and most dolphin moms are protective; shes been hard to approach since having Cracker. This particular morning, Club was anything but evasive. She and Cracker were meandering in the watery road between channel markers and were well aware of our approach. Dolphins have spectacular hearing and heard our boat engine for many minutes before our arrival. Instead of retreating into the distance as we passed, they agreeably stayed right where they were. Cracker even announced their presence by darting in front of the boat. It moved so quickly, we only glimpsed a suggestive splash instead of a tiny gray form. We slowed and were rewarded with quality time with Club and her Cracker, because they chose to stroll parallel to us as we headed north on our usual route. For the most part, young calf Cracker strolled at Clubs side but couldnt resist darting ahead now and again. Four months old and in the speed stage of development, Cracker has solved the problems of nursing without lips and using its miniature flukes to keep up with moms endless swimming. Young calves this age have learned that the upand-down pumping of their little propeller, the peduncle and flukes that make up the back half of their long narrow body, results in forward movement. Those in the speed stage experiment with velocity. These innocent owners discover that quick pumps of their propeller produce wondrous new bursts of speed. As we went, young Cracker periodically zoomed ahead to carve small swift circles that quickly returned it to Clubs reassuring side. When the time came to continue our search, Capt. Heidemann motored slowly ahead until wed left the strolling dolphins vicinity without an alarming acceleration. In the next bay, we spent much time tracking young teenager Doodle. Again, time to continue our search. We returned to the watery road and had just resumed our northward heading when another suggestive splash alerted us to new dolphins. But these dolphins werent new; they were a resight of Club and Cracker. Theyd maintained their slow steady northward trek while we tracked Doodle and, meeting us seamlessly, again allowed us to fall into step with them. Such a change from Clubs previous protective-Photo by ANN WEAVERIn a change of mood, bottlenose dolphin mother Club lets us have a good look at her charming new production, 4-month-old Cracker.ness! We again strolled together for a while. But though she continued to pace us, Clubs behavior began to change. Instead of maintaining a steady distance from us, she occasionally surfaced at greater distances. I interpret such behavior as encroaching ambivalence about our proximity, and asked Capt. Heidemann to increase our distance to increase Clubs comfort level. That worked for a while but Clubs behavior changed again. She and Cracker began surfacing behind rather than parallel to the boat. When this happens several times, I see it as an effort to avoid our presence but maintain their current behavior and signaled Capt. Heidemann to execute a diplomatic departure. After searching the final bay in the north, we returned to the watery road like a car pulling back onto the interstate from a rest stop and headed south, retracing our previous path. By and by, a suggestive splash revealed Club and Cracker! Another resight of this shy mom and her charming baby! Understanding the many reasons why individuals move about their space means understanding them. I think the best way to understand the relationship between causeway construction and free-ranging dolphin behavior is showing diplomacy during fieldwork by respecting the signals that these intelligent animals give. Because of that, I dont think it was accidental that we ran into Club and Cracker several times.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

According to the report, residential sales were up just over 17 percent. Median sales prices were up 4.5 percent from $114,000 to $120,000 from July 2011 to July 2012. Listings continued to slide by almost 30 percent for the same time period. Single-family sales were up almost 19 percent from 759 to 900 over the last 12 months. This puts further pressure on the months supply of inventory, dropping it 42 percent, from 6 months to 3.5 months the report said. The median sale price increased by almost $15,000, from $122,000 to $137,600 over the last 12 months. Condo sales were almost 16 percent with the median sales price increasing by about 2.5 percent from July 2011 to July 2012. Condo listings fell by 25 percent pushing down the months supply of inventory to 6 months. In the distressed market short sales made up 19 percent of total sales for July and foreclosures accounted for 14 percent. This was a significant shift from last year when the two were neck and neck. The median sales price of short sales over the last 12 months has dropped by almost $32,000 from $122,000 to $90,000. The median price of foreclosed properties and nondistressed properties had a negligible drop over the last 12 months. The report stated one bright spot has been the days on market for both short sales and foreclosures have dropped by almost three weeks over the last four months. Hopefully this trend continues and indicates that banks are processing their inventory more efficiently. Unfortunately, the days on market for nondistressed properties has increased by two weeks over the same time period. This is most likely due to increased problems with appraisals, mortgage financing and insurance.Klein & Heuchan represent Florida Bank in saleCLEARWATER Klein & Heuchan Inc. successfully represented the seller, Florida Bank, in the recent sale of 1715 North Missouri Ave., Largo, to General Equity Associates Inc.

Viewpoints 15A Beacon, September 6, 2012Allow public to have a say on euthanasiaRe:When Im dying, let me kill myself, Tom OHaras column, Aug. 30. Editor: Excellent article on euthanasia. For the people against it for religious reasons maybe we should consider that God helps those who help themselves, I agree with OHaras views and feel like the public should be allowed the choice of voting on euthanasia. If they want it or not state by state. Joan Carlton St. PetersburgRedington Beach did a good thingEditor: I applaud the Redington Beach mayor and commissioners for recognizing at their Aug. 21 town meeting that pedestrian crosswalks have not created the safe haven for pedestrians as intended. I applaud them for acknowledging accidents have gone up, versus down. I applaud them for setting into action to remove isolated crosswalks. It is my hope that adjoining beach communities will focus on how to decrease instead of increase accidents associated or caused by isolated, unwarranted crosswalks. John Messmore North Redington BeachA sound redevelopment strategy for the BiltmoreEditor: My name is Bill Eckenrode and since 2005 my wife and I have been spending six months each year at our condominium located at 6 Belleview Blvd. My business career now spans 55 years, mostly in financial responsibilities. Among other positions, I have been chief financial officer for two industrial corporations, have spent 25 years on the board of a real estate investment company and for the past 12 years have served as an adviser to an investment fund. Because of my background I was asked to review the market and financial analysis compiled by PKF Consulting and to opine on the validity of the redevelopment strategy outlined in the report. Although the real estate investment company I served as board member did acquire three hotels, I do not consider myself to be an expert in hotel investment or management. Therefore, I checked the capabilities of PKF Consulting to see if I could rely on their real estate data, assumptions and recommendations. I determined that they are recognized as a leader in their field, maintaining valuable hotel industry data bases. They are international in scope and have been analyzing the hotel industry for many years. Then I reviewed PKFs assumptions and projections of the economic climate in which the Belleview Biltmore would have to operate. Generally I found these economic assumptions to be reasonable, tending to conservative, tempered by the recent years of slow economic growth. After reviewing the underlying assumptions, I studied in depth Section VII: Estimated Utilization and Financial Analysis. My key impressions are: 1.) The development of the projected Belleview Biltmore Revenues utilized a number of logical calculations, incorporating both economic and Florida hotel data, arriving at understandable numbers. 2.) The estimates of financial performance are based upon the actual 2011 financial performance of five comparably sized and operated fullservice Florida based resorts, which adds credibility to the projections. 3.) The analysis assumes that the Belleview Biltmore will not achieve its stabilized occupancy rate until the third year of operation, which seems realistic. 4.) Recognizing that Belleview Biltmore golf and beach amenities are not adjacent to the hotel, the Analysis lowered its market penetration percentage, thus lowering the occupancy rate used. Because of this and the hotels location, the Analysis used a lower Average Daily Rate, more similar to The Renaissance Vinoy and the Loews Don CeSar room rates, which is more reasonable. In my opinion, the PFK Market and Financial Analysis is a professional and well developed projection of the financial results a restored Belleview Biltmore Hotel can be expected to produce, providing the sound redevelopment strategy set forth in the report is followed. Bill Eckendrode BelleairHave city commissioners forgotten their word?Editor: The Beach Bee headlines this week in bold print announces that IRB to Pursue Claim for oil spill. Surprising isnt it, City Manager Chuck Coward had said previously the city did not really suffer any losses because of the spill. The city also is pursuing this claim with a law firm located outside of this state. What has happened to integrity in this matter? Have the city commissioners forgotten this word, or conveniently pushed it aside, in their headlong rush to acquire new undeserved monetary riches. We talk of loss of values in todays world. My view holds that the appearance of the loss of integrity in this matter, besmirches this commissions reputation. Kelly Cisarik has the right idea when she states she was against proceeding with any lawsuit. I hope the city changes its mind. It is better to lead and be right, than fight for a place at the monetary troth, with little or no right to be there, other than share the greed. Victor Wood Indian Rocks BeachOnly the lawyers profitEditor: The IRB City Commission has fallen for one of the most blatant travesties of the American justice system, the class action suit. If the city was honestly affected, why now, two years later? Its only because the judges have allowed the lawyers to file these claims without any burden of proof just based on being located on the Gulf of Mexico. This is just a money grab and the IRB City Councils participation is both immoral and unconscionable. The only people who profit from these suits are the lawyers. The rest of us will suffer forever from higher prices at the pump as the oil companies just pass their additional costs on the consumers. If you dont believe that, look at the tobacco industry. Shame on every member of the IRB City Council for this decision. John Thayer Indian Rocks BeachAgainst light railEditor: It is true that Jeff Brandes was a strong candidate for Florida state senator, and he ran a strong campaign, but his opponent, Jim, is a career politician and was backed by most of the Republican establishment. Therefore, I feel that Frishes pro-light rail stance was a major factor in his defeat. Brandes, who is against light rail in Pinellas County, which would consist of a rail line from downtown St Petersburg to Clearwater, about 25 miles, and would cost taxpayers an undetermined amount of money. Also, Brandes had the support of our local Tea Party group headed by Barbara Haselden. Our group is strongly opposed to wasting taxpayers money on any project and especially a pie-in-the-sky endeavor like light rail in Pinellas County, with little or no chance of success. For our residents not familiar with the light rail issue in Pinellas County, just ask yourself this question: If you are a resident of St. Petersburg; would I take a train from downtown St. Petersburg to Clearwater?, or, if you are a resident of Clearwater, would I take a train from Clearwater to downtown St. Petersburg? If you answered no, then you certainly would want to vote no on a referendum to add an additional 1 percent sales tax next year in Pinellas County, which will be used to fund a light rail project in Pinellas County. Incidentally, this 1 percent sales tax increase would make Pinellas County the highest in sales tax in the state of Florida and this would certainly not be good for business. Personally, I feel that the residents of Pinellas County will do exactly what the residents of Hillsborough County did, and vote against any referendum to increase our sales tax and approve light rail.

Youve probably noticed. They do this because they dont know what else to do. Crying will usually get them attention, either a comforting hug, a cookie or a command to shut up so we can watch Two and a Half Men. As they grow, children are taught that its okay for girls to weep, but not okay for boys. Boys learn to cuss and say dirty words when theyre upset. They learn this from watching their fathers strike their thumbs with a hammer. As boys grow into manhood, they learn the exceptions to the rule, Thou shalt not cry. One exception is the American flag. When Old Glory waves in the breeze, its okay for a grown man to shed two tears one from each eye. Its especially all right if were watching a Western movie in which John Wayne and his cavalry, with all flags flying, ride in to massacre a band of Apaches who strayed from the reservation. Modern TV news coverage relies on the presence or absence of tears as an indicator of whats going on. If tears are shed at a funeral, then It was an emotional scene. But what if the cameraman can find no tears? The news director simply says, Skip the funeral and show the piece where the teenage kids are told their mother has just been run down by a drunken driver. Give me some sobbing, guys! In his novel Oliver Twist, heres what Charles Dickens said about crying: It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper. So cry away. Lets remember that. Through the ages, women have used tears as a means of achieving their goals. In a disagreement with a man, weeping has always been a womans formidable fallback position. The average man (and most of us fit that description) would rather choose root canal work than face a weeping woman. Even when we know were on the side of justice and the gods, we will finally say, OK, OK, well do it your way. Its all my fault. Just stop crying, please! If were lucky, the woman may then agree to have makeup sex with us. Sure she will. Experts dont have many final answers about why people cry. Obviously, its a means of expressing emotion, whether of grief, sadness, joy or just because the people around you are weeping and you dont want to seem like an odd duck. A major mystery is why some folks cry and others dont. One reason is cultural. If you grow up among weepers, you may become one, the same way you became Republican or Democrat or Lutheran. As a youth, I seldom wept without having a major reason (and today I cant even recall what some of those reasons were.) Now that I am old I tend to shed tears with absolutely no provocation. And I hate it, or much of it. I have long become sniffly at majestic music, such as Beethovens Ninth and Seventh or some of the lyrics of Kris Kristofferson. But now I may choke up when I hear a band playing the Ohio State fight song, or when I think of the final five minutes of the movies Heaven Can Wait or Pretty Woman. I feel like a fool, and try to recover by pretending my face is a block of ice. The sight of an accomplished figure skater, whirling and spinning eight times in the air, has always broken me up, as I think of the years of effort and sacrifice the skater has given. In the 1980s at the Los Angeles Olympics a female marathon runner collapsed while only a few hundred yards from the finish line. Instead of calling it quits, she crawled, dragging her painracked body inch by inch to the end of the race. My memory of that scene still can move me to tears. I am a worshipper at the altar of grit and determination, probably because I possess so little of those qualities myself. Today, for me, the most potent automatic producer of salty tears is a TV commercial by an animal-protection group. The ad shows a collection of battered, abused dogs and cats, looking out from their cages, hoping that someone anyone will rescue them from the euthanasia that surely awaits if we, the viewers, dont immediately come to the shelter and sign the adoption papers. Its an effective ad, but I hate it. It triggers my homicidal instincts, making me want to seek out and dismember the wretches who harmed the animals. And Id probably cry like a baby as I performed the executions.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him your comments at tralee71@com cast.net.When do we cry, and why?When Florida students headed back to the classroom this month, 14-year-old Willow Tufano of North Port was not among them. Willow, you see, has more important things to do like collecting rent from the tenants who live in the house she bought recently with earnings from her small business. If you need to re-read that last sentence, go ahead. Because it isnt every day that a 14-year-old buys a house. And Willows remarkable story not only should give hope to everyone worried about the future of the American dream, but it also should help us rediscover a time-honored American ideal that can help get our nation out of its current economic mess. Two years ago, Willows mother was helping process a foreclosure along Floridas Gulf Coast. When Willow learned that the man in charge of the property planned to dispose of the household belongings left behind, she asked if she could have them instead. He agreed. Soon Willow began posting notices on Craigs List, selling these and other items she found at yard sales and by dumpster diving. Willow quickly learned the used-goods market. Baby items, bunk beds, video games, and electronics sell well, she says. Appliances like dishwashers and old TVs dont. Willow saved her earnings, amassing $6,000 over 18 months. Then, one day, she overheard her mother talking about a home once valued at $100,000 that was on the short sale market for $16,000. Willow said shed like to buy the home. And buy it she did for $12,000 (half with her savings, half with funds borrowed from her mother.) Once Willow pays back her mom using the $700 in rent she collects every month from tenants nearly twice her age she hopes to buy another house. I calculated that I can make more doing this than I can in a typical teenage job, she says, innocently. In case youre wondering, Willow is not being deprived of a formal education. Shes taking a full slate of advanced courses through the Florida Virtual School (FLVS). And she plans to go to college some day. She says taking classes online gives her the flexibility she needs to run her business. On trash days, being able to go out and get the good stuff that people leave on the street is really important. If it werent for FLVS, Id never be able to do this. That Willow has educational options is a testament to the enduring influence of economist Milton Friedman, Americas original school choice champion, whose centennial birth was commemorated at more than 100 events all over the world last month. Indeed, Willows propensity to see business opportunities where others see none is just what one might expect from a student whos been conditioned to see schooling options beyond the conventional. But Willows story is about more than the benefits of educational freedom. Its also about the benefits of economic freedom and the rediscovery of a time-honored idea that Benjamin Franklin once championed. If Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and Madison crafted the Constitution, then Benjamin Franklin, it might truly be said, invented the American Dream, writes social historian Barbara Dafoe Whitehead. Franklin encouraged Americans to be industrious and frugal to practice thrift, which, interestingly, comes from the same root as thriving. And Franklin did this not just to facilitate upward mobility, but because he knew that economic dependency and chronic debt hinders ones liberty. Sadly, Americas thrift ethic has declined in recent years. Whitehead reports that the term thrift is rarely associated with industriousness anymore. And frugality, which comes from the same root as fruitfulness, remains a foreign word to many in our day, especially government officials in Washington. Thankfully, the John Templeton Foundation is seeking to reverse these trends. In recent years, Templeton-funded projects in Pennsylvania and Florida have successfully revived Thrift Week celebrations tied to Benjamin Franklins Jan. 17 birthday. As part of this effort, a supplemental thrift curriculum, All About the Benjamins, reached more than 135,000 Florida students earlier this year. Had Willow Tufano been in the classroom instead of out buying her first home she might have encountered this curriculum. But judging from this spunky teenagers remarkable story, its safe to say Willow already knows something about the value of hard work and saving for the future. The rest of us should follow this little entrepreneurs example.

In addition to the name change, the organization also altered its brand promise and graphic identity. It is the organizations hope that the name Directions for Living and commitment that life gets better here will capture the true focus of the agency, which still includes but now extends well beyond the previously narrow mission of providing premier behavioral health services, as it enters the next stage of assisting Tampa Bay consumers along an expanding continuum of care. The Directions for Living logo, which was developed in collaboration with local branding and advertising firm PeakBiety, was carefully chosen to represent the dynamic integration of Directions for Livings four main service sets: prevention, wellness and recovery; adult behavioral health; childrens behavioral health; and child safety and family preservation. Together, these core areas make up the comprehensive, integrated health care agency that many have come to know through experience. The transition is well timed, as Directions is celebrating its 30th year of operation, along with several other significant milestones this year. Addressing the whole person by integrating care is one of the best ways to improve the quality of life for our children, adults, and families, said April Lott in a press release. Lott is president and CEO of Directions for Living. In addition to the broad scope of services offered at Directions for Living, which includes primary care, substance abuse treatment, behavioral health care, homeless outreach, and many other services, Directions for Living is also proud to be the provider of dependency case management and diversion services within the child welfare system of Pinellas County through its child safety and family preservation division. Directions for Living is proud of our commitment, contribution, and success in protecting children and preserving families, said Lott.

Opening this weekCooper stars as aspiring author in The Words Photo by JONATHAN WENKBradley Cooper, left, stars as Rory Jansen and Jeremy Irons as The Old Man in CBS Films' romantic drama The Words. Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEOnly one new movie will open in wide release this week, with several others scheduled for limited release in select markets across the country.The WordsGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana Director: Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal Rated: PG-13 It was everything aspiring author Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper) needed to be. It was everything Dora Jansen (Zoe Saldana) knew he could be. Fuller. Truer. More honest. Hearing a succinct validation of the words unfolding his heart-rending tale of love and loss from the woman he loved, trumped the moral conundrum that lay in wait. It could cost him everything, in ways he never anticipated. It would bring him everything, in ways he always anticipated. There was just one problem. The words were not his. Rorys great American novel belonged to the voice of another. Riding acclaim on the stolen work of an Old Man (Jeremy Irons) proved more than an ethical breach. It silenced that mans public claim to his own life and the tragic choice he made as a Young Man (Ben Barnes) that would come to define him. Rory would find himself shadowing the Young Mans fate overwhelming ambition fueled by the love of words more than the love that inspired them. His life would play out on the pages of novelist Clay Hammonds (Dennis Quaid) latest bestseller. But it is in Hammonds secret past that Daniella (Olivia Wilde), a seductive grad student captivated by his work, suspects the line between fiction and nonfiction has been crossed. Bolstered by a stellar cast and told through multiple narratives, the romantic drama The Words explores the devastating consequences when ambition is valued above love.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.BrandedGenre: Science fiction thriller Cast: Ed Stoppard, Leelee Sobieski, Jeffrey Tambor, Ingeborga Dapkunaite and Max von Sydow Director: Jamie Bradshaw and Alexander Doulerain Rated: R Branded is a dark and mind-bending journey into a surreal, dystopian society where mega-corporations have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population deluded, dependent and passive. One mans quest to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with the hidden forces that really control our world.The Cold Light of DayGenre: Action and thriller Cast: Henry Cavill, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Echegui and Bruce Willis Director: Mabrouk El Mechri Rated: PG-13 When Will Shaw (Henry Cavill) arrives in Spain for a weeklong sailing vacation with his family, the stressed young businessman is not in a holiday mood. His startup company is in trouble and his tense relationship with his disciplinarian father Martin (Bruce Willis) only makes matters worse. But when the family is kidnapped by what turns out to be intelligence agents hell-bent on recovering a mysterious briefcase, Will suddenly finds himself on the run. His whole world turns upside down when Martin reappears, revealing he is an undercover agent tangled in an intergovernmental web of lies and secrets. During a clandestine rendezvous, Martin is killed by a sniper, and Will must find a way to get the rest of his family back alive.Keep the Lights OnGenre: Drama Cast: Thure Lindhardt, Zachary Booth, Julianne Nicholson, Souleymane Sy Syvane and Paprika Steen Director: Ira Sachs Not rated Keep the Lights On chronicles an emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers compulsive, and fueled by drugs and sex. In an almost decade-long relationship defined by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself. Director Ira Sachss fearlessly personal screenplay is anchored by Lindhardt, who embodies Eriks isolation and vulnerability with a gentle presence. Harrowing and romantic, visceral and layered, Keep the Lights On is a film that looks at love and all of its manifestations, taking it to dark depths and bringing it back to a place of grace. [REC] 3: GenesisGenre: Horror Cast: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martin, Javier Botet, lex Monner, Ismael Martnez, Ana Isabel Velsquez, Mireia Ros, Itziar Castro, Blai Llopis and Emilio Mencheta Director: Paco Plaza Rated: R Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride, the groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day in the countryside until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness.

Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, the story focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with a young writer, Cliff Bradshaw. A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Frulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. And overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub which serves as a constant metaphor for the tenuous and threatening state of late Weimar Germany throughout the show. Reprising his critically acclaimed role as the Emcee will be David Mann, the director of acting studies at Blake School of the Arts. Local stars Roxanne Fay, John Lombardi and Larry Alexander will also return, along with Sorensen. Lauren Wood from Sarasota will join the cast as Fraulein Kost, and headlining in the role of Sally Bowles is actress Jennifer Byrne, whose New York credits include the original cast of Evil Dead: the Musical and the revival of The Pirates of Penzance. Eric Davis, freeFalls award-winning artistic director, helms the production. LOOKING AHEAD, from page 3B
