Options abound

to help the needy
Caring for Pinellas County's less fortu-
nate, its seniors and those with special
needs is a constant challenge. But, year
after year, Pinellas County comes togeth-
er to make the holidays bright for every-
one, old and young, sick and healthy,
and especially the poor. Tampa Bay
Newspapers has updated its annual

Volunteers shine

at Animal Services
Pinellas County Animal Services is for-
tunate to have about 150 volunteers who
give of their time and energy to help out
at the shelter. And it is even more fortu-
nate to have volunteers who supervise
the volunteers. Tiffani Oliver and Lindsay
Martin are among that group.

Christmas tree

farms close by
We may not be dashing through the
woods in a one-horse open sleigh, but we
can still have a fresh cut Christmas tree
in Florida. The family tradition of going
to the forest, picking out a tree and cut-
ting it down is still available to us with
two tree farms close to Pinellas County.

Annual holiday parade set to roll


Organizers say more than 50 units are expected for the Dec. 9 event


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE More than 50 units are expected to par-
ticipate Sunday, Dec. 9 when the city of Seminole and
the Seminole Chamber of Commerce present the sev-
enth annual Bright Before Your Eyes Holiday Parade.
The annual event rolls down 113th Street from the
Seminole Mall to the Seminole Recreation Center, be-
ginning at 6:30 p.m.
"We're very fortunate to bring this again this year,
due to the economy," said Jacob Valentin, the cham-
ber's parade director. "But everybody has stepped up
very well and the city has done a great job to organize


SEMINOLE Seminole Fire Rescue officially promoted four
fire officers Nov. 27 during the city's most recent City Council
meeting at City Hall.
Chief George Bessler appeared before council members to in-
troduce and promote the four firefighters two to the rank of
lieutenant and two to district chief.
The promotions were the result of two recent chief officer re-
tirements.
Promoted to district chief were William Morelli and John
Schmidt. Derek Raymer and Matt Seib were promoted to lieu-
tenant.
Morelli has been with the department since 2000 and has
served as a firefighter/paramedic and lieutenant. He also is a
HAZMAT and technical rescue responder. His background in-
cludes an extensive background as a fire officer, instructor, fire
inspector and he has an associate's degree in fire science. He
and his wife Nicole have two children.
Schmidt, who has been with the fire department since 1991,



Fluoride going back


into drinking water


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER After listening
to about three hours of testimo-
ny, mostly against, Pinellas
County commissioners voted, 6-
1, Nov. 27 to return fluoride to its
public drinking water.
Pinellas County Utilities will
begin adding fluoride to the water
it sells sometime around March
1, 2013. The delay is to allow
time for notice to go out in a com-
plete cycle of bi-monthly water
bills. The public also will be in-
formed of the change via media
coverage and the county's web-
site. Notice will be given to all ap-
propriate agencies, as well as
Utilities wholesale customers.
The level of fluoride will be
maintained at 0.7 parts per mil-
lion, as recommended by the


Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. Bob Powell, director
of Water and Sewer for the De-
partment of Environment and In-
frastructure, said some of the
equipment at the Keller Plant
used to monitor fluoride levels
needed replacement at an esti-
mated cost of about $25,000. Es-
timated annual operating costs
for fluoridation is $160,000.
Commissioners first listened to
about a half dozen people in sup-
port of fluoridation. Their chief
argument was the benefit of the
additive to prevent cavities, espe-
cially for children who could not
afford dental care.
About 40 speakers lined up in
opposition. They expressed con-
cerns about possible adverse

it. I can't say enough about how much help they've
been."
Staging for the parade will be on Johnson Boulevard,
from Seminole Boulevard west to Liberty Lane. The pa-
rade will begin in front of the mall by the south en-
trance, move west toward 113th Street and north on
113th Street toward the Recreation Center.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office will close 113th
Street at 6:15 p.m. until the end of the parade, about
7:30 p.m.
The parade will again include the Seminole High
School marching band, the Seminole Fire Rescue honor
guard, a number of community organization floats,


area schools and a number of churches.
Santa Claus will make his entrance at the end of the
parade.
As in past years, Sheriffs deputies will not allow pa-
rade patrons to sit in the median. Also, parade partici-
pants will not be allowed to throw candy but parade
walkers will be handing out goodies along the east side
of the route.
This year's title sponsor is Realty Executives Adamo
and Associates.
Other sponsors include Bright House Networks,
Home Depot, Sweetbay, MedExpress Urgent Care,
Alexander Chiropractic and Centratel.

Share the spirit


Opportunities are abundant to help the needy in Pinellas County this holiday season


By SUZETTE PORTER

Caring for Pinellas County's less fortunate, its seniors and those
with special needs is a constant challenge. But, year after year, Pinel-
las County comes together to make the holidays bright for everyone,
old and young, sick and healthy, and especially the poor.
Tampa Bay Newspapers has updated its annual Share the Spirit
listing of ways people are pitching in to help others. To add to the list,
send an email to webmaster@TBNweekly.com.

Collection for Operation Santa, senior center
The Gulfport Merchant's Association is collecting items for Opera-
tion Santa during the Holiday Hoopla Dec. 8, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bring
unwrapped toys and gift cards for children and families and nonper-
ishable food, toiletries and pet supplies for the Gulfport Senior Center
Foundation. Collection Boxes will be located at the Casino Stage at the
intersection of Beach and Shore boulevards during the event. Non-
event drop off locations include Gulfport Police Department and The
Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce. For more information, visit gulf
portma.com or call 322-5217.

Elves for Elders Program 2012
in Largo, St. Petersburg, Oldsmar
The Elves for Elders program connects gift givers with seniors who
have no funds or family to provide them with basic necessities or to re-
member them with a gift at the holidays. You can help by becoming an
"Elf."
Simply pick a tag off a tree containing the wish list of someone in
need. Buy an item or two and return the gifts unwrapped to the loca-
tion on the tag. No gift is too small, and if you do not have time to
shop, mail a gift card to Elves, Sunshine Center, 330 Fifth St. N., FL
33701 and an Elf will shop for you.
Trees are located at Bealls Stores in Largo Mall, Gateway Mall, and
Oldsmar Mall. More trees are located at Pasadena Office building at
1135 S. Pasadena Ave.; The Walgreen's on 54th Avenue and Ninth
Street; Walgreen's on U.S. 19 and Central Avenue; and the Big Lot's on
62nd Avenue.
Gifts are taken to The Sunshine Senior Center where head Elf Carol
Radin, administrative assistant, Office on Aging for the city of St. Pe-
tersburg, works with other elves who put the bags together, then dis-
tribute the gift bags to the case managers and guardians of the needy
seniors, who deliver them to the seniors. Deadline to drop off the gifts
at the trees is Dec. 12. The list is long this year with more than 450
needy seniors.

Toys for Tots drive Ice Cold Air
Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair, a Pinellas-based auto repair, is
trading free oil changes and tire rotations or $20 in auto repair service
to any customer who brings in a new, unwrapped toy for the Marines'
'Toys for Tots" program through Dec. 10.
According to Tina M. Denham, president of Ice Cold Air Discount
Auto Repair, "this is the seventh year we have joined with the Marines
and their worthwhile program, and we are very excited our support
makes a positive impact in the lives of children. Last year our cus-
tomers donated approximately 1,000 toys for the less fortunate chil-
dren in our community."
Customers have the option of trading the new toy for an oil change
and tire rotation on the spot or exchanging the toy for a voucher for a
free future oil change and tire rotation or $20 off any service.
The company has also added another component to the Toys for
Tots drive, a contest on Facebook. Facebook users can guess how
many toys they think the company will collect at all 16 Ice Cold Air lo-
cations. Each guess counts as $1 toward charity. The winner receives
a $50 VISA Gift Card but also then selects which charity receives the
donation for the total number of votes. Donations will be accepted at
all 16 Ice Cold Air locations. The toys must be in the original packag-
ing and unwrapped. Visit www.icecoldair.com for a list of locations.

Toys for Tots drive Sand Key
Sand Key Realty is sponsoring Fill the Sand Key Limo with Toys on
Saturday, Dec. 15, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In exchange for unwrapped
toys, gift givers will receive a thank you raffle ticket. The raffle drawing
begins at 4:30 p.m. for prizes donated by The Shoppes of Sand Key.
The prize gift certificates range from ice cream cones to a dozen roses a
month for a year. Event organizers hope that the raffle tickets will en-
tice people to give more toys, as there are a lot of local children in need
of holiday cheer this year.

Family elf returns to North Pole


For many families, the Elf on the Shelf is Santa's
helper during the holidays. The elf, about 8 inches
in height and made of felt, comes in a keepsake box
with a hardcover book by the same title.
In our house, he has only been a source of fear
and trepidation.
The book explains that the elf watches each day
to make sure the boys and girls are being good. At
night, while the children are sleeping, he reports
back to Santa about how the kids were that day.
When the kids wake up, the elf is usually in a new
spot some-
where around
the house. It Mom 2 Mom
is a family tra- Kadi Hendricks
edition for Tubbs
many, and
the fun part
for the kids is
finding out where the elf is hiding.
Three years ago, a friend gave us the book along
with the elf. I think my girls were 3 and 5 when we
got him. We read the book, named the elf and regis-
tered him online.
That night, the elf started playing hide-and-seek.
Well, it didn't last long, because my girls were
frightened. We ended up telling them the elf had to
go to the North Pole to help Santa and wouldn't be
back that year. They were happy he was gone.
Since then, we haven't had the elf back to our
house. That is, until this year.
The girls were helping me put up the Christmas
decorations and found the elf packed away in a box
with our Christmas stuff. They begged to have him
out again and for us to re-read the story.
My kids are older now, so my husband and I
thought maybe this year we could have some fun
with it. In school, both of my daughters' teachers
have an Elf on the Shelf in their classrooms. Their
teachers told the students the elf would be watch-

health effects. Many said the commission did not have
the authority to medicate the public without its con-
sent.
"We want to make our own medical choices," said
Regina Brown of Largo. 'This is outside your scope."
Commissioner Norm Roche cast the lone no vote.
Roche said he had been opposed to fluoridation since
the commission in 2003 first approved it.
"It's very clear to me today there are questions and
fluoride should not be added to the water," he said.
Commissioner Ken Welch maintained his position in
support.
"Fluoride is safe," Welch said, citing statements on


ing the class, so the kids needed to be good.
My 8-year-old daughter became a little obsessed
with our elf. At first, she was skeptical about the elf
being "real," telling me that he's just a stuffed ani-
mal with a tag. But after her teacher brought out
the elf in school and told the kids the elf was "real,"
she wanted her elf at home to be "real" too.
She decided she would leave her iPod out and
ask him to make her a video. She had seen videos
online that other elves had made. She also wrote
him a note.
That night, she couldn't sleep. She kept waking
up to see if he moved, to see if he wrote her a note
back or if he did a video. She was a little afraid and
excited at the same time. She hardly slept.
The next morning, the elf was in a different spot
and wrote her a note. She was so excited and
couldn't wait for the next night.
The next day and night, my daughter's obsession
with the elf grew worse. All she could think about
was this elf and where was he going to move and
how he moved.
If that wasn't bad enough, my 6-year-old daugh-
ter who, by the way, didn't really care one way or
the other about the elf- played a trick on her older
sister. She moved the elf during the day, wrote a
note from the elf and even made a video with the elf
moving.
This really made my older daughter nervous.
Even though the younger one later admitted to
moving the elf, my 8-year-old couldn't sleep that
night
Finally, my husband had to box up the elf and
ship him back to the North Pole. Maybe we will try
again next year. The girls kind of miss the elf, but
for now they are glad he isn't in the house.

Fluoride was removed from Pinellas County's drink-
ing water Jan. 1, after a 4-3 decision with Commis-
sioners John Morroni, Norm Roche, Nancy Bostock
and Neil Brickfield voting for its removal.
Bostock and Brickfield lost their bid for re-election
in the Nov. 6 election. Their replacements, Charlie
Justice and Janet Long, both advocates of fluoridation,
made the issue part of their election campaigns. Long
promised if elected, she would bring the matter back
to the commission. Her motion to place the matter on
the Nov. 27 agenda was approved Nov. 20.

A charter position


Madeira Beach finance director status gets a boost


By WAYNE AYERS

MADEIRA BEACH A chance comment by the
city attorney that the finance director is a charter of-
ficer could significantly change the governmental
setup in Madeira Beach.
The remark, made during a discussion of the hir-
ing of a city clerk at the Nov. 27 City Commission
meeting, came as a shock to the commission mem-
bers and city officials present. The finance director
had been presumed for years to be a department
head reporting to the city manager. Charter officers
report directly to the commission and include City
Attorney Thomas Trask, City Manager Shane Craw-
ford and the city clerk position, which is currently
unfilled.
The revelation that finance director Vincent
Tenaglia is a charter officer would put him on a level
with the city manager, where he now reports.
The issue came up as the commission was decid-
ing whether to downgrade the city clerk job and
have that position report to Crawford. The job would
then have a lower salary, which could save the city
about $25,000 a year.
During the discussion, Trask was asked to name
the charter officers. Among them was the "city
treasurer," which Trask said would be Tenaglia. Of
Tenaglia, Trask said, "I realize he has been reporting
to Shane, but the charter provides he is a charter
official."
Crawford hired Tenaglia last April after terminat-
ing the prior finance director.
Crawford said not having the finance director as a
direct report would significantly change the nature
of his job.
"I spend about 90 percent of my time dealing with
the budget," he said.
Ironically, one of the reasons given for downgrad-
ing the city clerk to a position reporting to the city
manager was the difficulty of oversight by the com-
missioners. Mayor Travis Palladeno described that
situation as "having five bosses who can't talk to
each other."
Facing a possible major change in city govern-
ment, the commission directed Trask to review the
city charter and code provisions on charter officers
and report the findings at the next commission
workshop.
The commission decided to leave the city clerk as
a charter officer, although Palladeno and Commis-
sioner Terry Lister had favored downgrading the po-
sition. That would have required a referendum vote
to change the charter.
Palladeno said cities such as St. Pete Beach and
Seminole had benefitted from making the city clerk
a lower ranked position. Lister put it, "I like saving
$25,000 a year."
Commissioners Nancy Oakley and Robin Vander
Velde were strongly opposed to making any changes
to the city clerk position.
'The clerk is a huge resource for me, acting as an
assistant and secretary for all of us," said Vander
Velde. She added, "Having the city clerk report to
the city manager puts a level of bureaucracy be-
tween me and someone who is a very valuable re-
source."
Palladeno gave up his push to downgrade the job
after finding out a referendum vote would delay any
action on the matter about a year. But he said the
idea still made sense.
"I see no difference between a paralegal and a city
clerk," the mayor said.


Resident June Mohns disagreed. She said the city
clerk position "requires a specialized professional
skill set and we should keep it that way."
The commission agreed to begin an intensive
search for a city clerk immediately, using media ad-
vertising and professional association websites.
Crawford said a new city clerk could be hired by
mid-February.

Civil Service gets new start
Heeding the advice of the city's labor attorney, the
commission agreed to re-establish a long dormant
Civil Service Commission. The committee would
deal with personnel matters.
Attorney Tom Gonzalez said a number of issues
have arisen regarding employees and the city's
mostly unionized workforce, which could be han-
dled by that commission. Matters to be resolved re-
lated to personnel rules, suspensions, vacations,
pay plans and the like, he said.
The Civil Service Commission has not met in a
number of years, but has never been abolished,
Trask informed the commission. The commission
has routinely reappointed its members, even though
the committee has ceased to exist, he said. The
committee has five members, of which two, Alan Dill
and James Curry, are current.
The commission agreed to re-establish Civil Serv-
ice Commission and accept applications to fill the
three vacancies. Lister said he believed the commis-
sion is "an excellent and smart example of commu-
nity involvement." Oakley said she agreed.

Parking lots to be repaired
The city will use funds set aside for street repairs
to redo all public parking lots. Crawford recom-
mended that action because the upcoming storm
water control project will delay work on the roads.
"We do not have the ability to pave the streets
now. There will be too much going on underground
(with the storm water project) and we'll have to
break up the streets," he said.
Crawford said the parking lots "are by far the
worst pavement in the city."
The coming switch to digital pay stations will fur-
ther tear up the lots, he said.
"Let's do the parking lots now because they are
bad," Vander Velde agreed.
Crawford will get bids to repair all city-owned
parking lots.

Flyers declared illegal
Trask informed the commission that the place-
ment of flyers and other advertising materials on ve-
hicles and handing out Christmas bonuses to
employees are both against the law.
The city has received numerous complaints from
motorists finding advertising flyers on their wind-
shields. Trask said the city code "prohibits anyone
from sticking anything on your car for a commercial
purpose.
"It is not allowed, but it is happening," Crawford
said.
There is no need to change the code, Trask said.
Just enforce it.
The commission also learned that a new state law
prohibits giving employee bonuses as a reward for
work done in the past.
A proposal by Lister to spend about $50,000 to
give all city employees a $1,000 bonus was with-
drawn.

Volunteers take the lead at Pinellas Animal Services


By BOB COSTIGAN
Pinellas County Animal Services is fortunate to have about 150 vol-
unteers who give of their time and energy to help out at the shelter.
And it is even more fortunate to have volunteers who supervise the
volunteers.
Tiffani Oliver and Lindsay Martin spend much of their time at the
shelter. Department Volunteer Coordinator Kelli Becraft said that the
staff has come to depend on the two St. Petersburg volunteers because
they commit to a schedule and are willing to run various events.
Tiffani Oliver works for an insurance company in Largo. She said
she was looking for a way to get out of the office for awhile when she
thought of Animal Services, located nearby. With a passion for animals
and two dogs of her own, she started visiting the center on her lunch
break. Soon she was walking the dogs.
That was one and a half years ago. In addition to her lunch hours
she now spends weekends at the shelter as well. Oliver said her hus-
band is very supportive of her volunteering and even goes to the shel-
ter every now and then himself.
Oliver admitted that it is somewhat difficult to see an animal leave.
"But you know that they're better off in a home environment, and
you know what you're doing is making that happen," she said.
Another weekend worker who also is at the shelter four days during
the week, Lindsay Martin performs a variety of tasks, including social-
izing with all the animals, walking the dogs and assisting the veteri-
nary staff.
While the 19 year old doesn't have any pets of her own, there is one
animal that she has grown attached to, a dog that has been at the
shelter for several months. It's the first dog she walks when she arrives
at the shelter and the last dog she walks before she goes home. These
attachments can be difficult to break, but she still hopes he will soon
find a new home.
"I love the animals," she said. 'They are so sweet."
Becraft is proud of Oliver and Martin and all the volunteers. "About
the only prerequisite a person must have to volunteer is be 16 or older
and have a love for animals," she said.
Oliver and Martin both encourage others to consider volunteering at
Animal Services. Positions can include dog walker/socializer, greeter,
clerical assistant, phone operator and more. If you think you would
like to assist at Animal Services you can call the Animal Services vol-

Annual produce giveaway scheduled
OLDSMAR Oldsmar Cares and Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater,
have partnered again this year along with other members of the Pinel-
las Legislative Delegation and Florida Farm Share to give away fresh
produce to families in upper Pinellas County the week before Christ-
mas.
The event will be at the Oldsmar Cares offices located at 163 S.R.
580 West, Oldsmar, Tuesday, Dec. 18.
This giveaway begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m. Free produce is
available to the public while supplies last. Items to be distributed at
this event have included green beans, corn and juice.
When Sen. Latvala served in the Florida Senate from 1994-2002, he
initiated Florida Farm Share Free Produce distributions in West Pasco
and north Pinellas.
In 2011, the senator had a successful giveaway the week before
Christmas at England Brothers Park in Pinellas Park and Oldsmar
Cares in Oldsmar.
Oldsmar Cares is a nonprofit all volunteer organization with a mis-
sion to provide stopgap rent and utility assistance, a food pantry, and
a clothes closet, all at no cost, to those in need in the greater Oldsmar
area.

6A County


Local forum sheds light


on Pinellas watersheds


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Little things count big when ev-
eryone works together to improve water quality in
Pinellas County, so say the nine panelists who par-
ticipated in a Nov. 28 e-TownHall: Watershed, where
we live, work and play.
Moderated by Communications Department spe-
cialist Len Ciecieznski, panelists included Dale Arm-
strong, horticulture Extension agent, and Jane
Morse, commercial horticulture Extension agent,
who fielded questions about ways homeowners, gar-
deners and professional landscapers can help pro-
tect the county's watersheds.
Kelli Levy, Department of Environmental Infras-
tructure Watershed Division manager, and Nanette
O'Hara, outreach coordinator for Tampa Bay Estu-
ary Program, talked about the bigger picture in
terms of responsibility for maintaining local water-
sheds and water quality.
David Downing, assistant director for the St. Pe-
tersburg-Clearwater Convention Visitors Bureau,
and Mike Miedel, director of the county's Economic
Development, outlined the many ways that water-
sheds, water quality and the environment goes
hand in hand with the county's economic opportu-
nities.
Terry Tomalin, Outdoors and Fitness Editor for
the Tampa Bay Times, talked about the importance
of water quality for water recreation. Liz Drayer,
county resident and mother of two teenagers, gave
the public's perspective on the issue.
So, what is the issue? What is the connection be-
tween people and water quality?
Levy explained the concept. A watershed is an
area of land through which rainfall travels on its
way to the nearest body of water, i.e. Tampa Bay,
Gulf of Mexico, Lake Tarpon or Lake Seminole.
"Every square foot of Pinellas County is a water-
shed," she said.
Rain falls and is absorbed into the ground until it
can't hold more. The excess runs off into driveways
and on into the road as it makes its way to the near-
est drain sometimes traveling for miles through a
series of pipes or ditches, Levy said.
The intent of the public education campaign,
which kicked off with the e-TownHall, is to get ev-
eryone to understand the impact of personal pollu-
tants on local watersheds.
Ciecieznski asked Levy if there was one thing the
public could do that would have the biggest effect
on water quality. Without hesitation, she said, the
most beneficial would be management of grass clip-
pings.
'You see landscapers blowing them everywhere,"
she said. "Grass eats nitrogen and phosphorous to
grow. Turn it (blower) around and blow the clippings


back on your yard. Let them feed your lawn."
O'Hara said if people leave grass clippings on
their lawn, they would get one free feeding a year.
"Phosphorous is not the problem. It occurs every-
where naturally in the soil," she said. "Nitrogen is
public enemy No. 1 in Tampa Bay."
Levy said following instructions when applying
fertilizers and never fertilizing before a rain would
help reduce nitrogen pollution.
Pet owners can help reduce the bacteria moving
through the watershed by picking up after their ani-
mals.
'There are more bacteria in pet waste than a cow
or human beings," Levy said.
The public was able to ask the panelists ques-
tions using the county's blog site, Twitter or by
phone. A blogger asked why pet waste was a prob-
lem since it was a "natural product."
O'Hara agreed that it was; however, she pointed
out that pet waste was an artificially driven problem
due to the concentration of so many pets in a small
area.
'We all love our dogs," she said.
An estimated half million live in the Tampa Bay
watershed, which ups the potential for high bacteria
and water quality problems.
O'Hara talked about the work done to clean up
the "mess" left from development done in the '50s
and '60s. She credited the success to a collaborative
effort between government, private organizations
and citizens.
'Water quality in Tampa Bay is as good as it was
in the 1950s," she said, which is quite a feat consid-
ering the growth in Pinellas County.
We've made tremendous progress together," she
said. "But there's still a lot of work to do."
Tomalin, who spends time fishing, surfing and
paddling in local waterways, agreed that water clari-
ty had improved as evidenced by a lack of ear infec-
tions after spending time engaging in water sports.
Levy said it was likely that pet waste was respon-
sible for Tomalin's ear infections and his improved
health could be attributed to work done to improve
water quality.
While water quality is improving in Tampa Bay,
the Nov. 28 meeting focused on watersheds the
area between where people live, work and play and
area water bodies.
Another blogger asked if money was available to
pay to educate the public on the issue. Levy said
while money was available, it was much reduced.
The Extension Service offers a number of programs
that are educating people about best practices for
gardening and landscaping in Pinellas.

Landscape program through which residents can
learn how to design and maintain their yards. Morse

handles the commercial side of the program and
teaches classes required for certification of profes-
sional landscapers. Extension also has a help desk
open to residents with questions.
Miedel talked about the challenges for business
and industry to ensure they follow environmental
regulations.
'There's not a lot of empty land for offices and fac-
tories," he said.
Much of the industrial sites were developed prior
to existing environmental standards and don't meet
requirements. Miedel's staff works with potential de-
velopers to help them design compliant facilities
that will give them the best return on their invest-
ment and protect the local environment.
Downing said Pinellas County's beaches and wa-
terways are a big draw for tourism. A clean environ-
ment is essential to the health of the $6 billion
industry.
"We're a peninsula on a peninsula. Water sells
the destination with all its water-based activities,"
he said.
He talked about the work being done by hotels on
the beach to become "friendlier to the environment."
He said they were even recycling soap and that 1
million bars had been recycled thus far.


Drayer said her teenagers had good environmen-
tally-friendly habits.
"I've been badgering them since they were little on
what they need to do," she said.
But she said her neighbors weren't as well versed.
She said too many people want a "square, green
yard" and maintain it with too much fertilizer and
pesticides.
She said more could be done by the government
and schools to educate the public.
Tomalin advocated empowering "kid ocean war-
riors," which is how he describes his children.
Often, kids get adults to do the right thing, he said.
Tomalin pointed out something he said was a "big
problem."
"A lot of people drive across the Bay every day
and they look at it, but they don't get in it," he said.
"Get out there in the water. Enjoy. It's the reason
people come here. Once you get fishing, paddling or
surfing, you'll become an advocate for it. You'll want
to protect it."
"It's all interconnected: the rain from the sky to
the beaches and bays," Ciecieznski said. 'We have
an opportunity to do harm or do good. Making bet-
ter choices mean a better environment for us all."
"Nothing but rain down the drain," Levy said.

HFA helps first-time homebuyers
Residents with a new home for the holidays on their seasonal wish
lists might want to contact Pinellas County Housing Finance Authority
for help.
The First-Time Homebuyer Program is available to those who have
never owned a home, have not owned a home in the last three years or
are veterans.
The rate for the Home Key 1st Mortgage is currently 3.50 percent
and is available to qualified first-time homebuyers in Pinellas, Pasco
and Polk counties. Residents who need help with down payment
and/or closing costs, may qualify for the Home Key Plus 2nd Mortgage
for up to $8,000.
To qualify for these programs, buyers must meet certain income re-
quirements; have a minimum credit score of 640 and take a required
homebuyer education class.
"Many folks may be considering a new home for the holidays and
there is a great variety of homes available," said Anthony M. Jones, ex-
ecutive director of the Housing Finance Authority. 'The low-interest
rate along with down-payment and closing-cost assistance provides
residents with increased opportunities to become homeowners."

PSTA director named to state board
ST. PETERESBURG The director of Maintenance for the Pinellas
Suncoast Transit Authority will use his expertise to improve transit op-
erations across the state and help save taxpayer dollars.
Billy Johnson, an 11-year PSTA veteran, with more than 30 years of
experience as a mechanic, was recently appointed to the Florida Tran-
sit Association Finance Corporation Consortium Purchasing Board.
This group evaluates, selects and negotiates bulk-purchasing agree-
ments for transit vehicles on behalf of Florida's public transit agencies.
Consortium Purchasing Board members are selected from transit
agencies across the state based on their level of expertise. The repre-
sentatives are the "best of the best."
As part of the consortium, Johnson will be working to ensure that
Florida's transit agencies get the best American-made vehicles at the
lowest possible prices. For the next 18 months, the group will be eval-
uating numerous bus models from various manufactures to determine
which will best serve the public. Once the list of vehicles is set, the


consortium will negotiate a purchase price with the manufacturers as
part of a five-year contract. The final list will include buses of all sizes
and fuel sources including diesel, hybrids, and natural gas.
'This is really an honor and I'm excited about helping to select the
vehicles that will shape the future of transit throughout the state,"
Johnson said.
Johnson is the first PSTA director of maintenance to serve on the
FTAFC Board since its inception.
'This collaborative effort gives every Public Transit agency in Florida
- no matter how big or small the chance to purchase the buses of
their choice at the best possible prices. It benefits both the taxpayers
and the private sector manufactures," adds PSTA CEO Brad Miller.
The FTAFC was created in 1995 by the Florida Transit Association
(now known as the Florida Public Transportation Association) as a way
to reduce the costs associated with transit operators' capital and
equipment projects.
An example of how the purchasing consortium works can be seen in
the 12 new diesel-electric hybrid buses on order for PSTA. Due to hit
the streets within the next few months, they were purchased from the
state contract using federal grant funds.

bad thing.
There are plenty of ways Floridians can

Road work on schedule in Belleair
BELLEAIR Residents of the Eagle's Nest neighborhood in town
knew they would be in for a rough time while several streets were
being torn up for repair. And while it will be months before it is all fin-
ished, they got some good news at the commission meeting on Nov.
20.
Public Works Director Perry Lopez told the commission that the
work on Winston Drive, the first street to be tackled in the project,
could be finished soon.
'This was the toughest street to deal with," he said. 'There is only
one way in and one way out of Winston, so during the work the con-
tractor had to make sure there was always a lane open for local traf-
fic."
Lopez said the main part of the work on Winston is now done and if
the weather cooperates all the asphalt should be down by the end of
the month.
The Eagles Nest project, as it is known, is a $3.2 million effort to
upgrade the roadway and the stormwater system. It involves laying
new pipes underground and new curbs and gutters as well as new
pavement on all the streets. Already crews have begun working on
South Garden Circle.
"Once we're finished laying pipe on one street we move on to the
next one while they pave the first street, so the work is ongoing," said
Lopez.
There are half a dozen streets involved in the project, which is
scheduled to be finished in September 2013, a year from the time it
began. Lopez said the project is on schedule and so far within budget,
but he cautioned commissioners there is still a long way to go and
anything can happen to cause potential cost over-runs.
Lopez told the commissioners that the next project, the Druid-Cor-
bett Road work, has gone out for bids and he expects to be able to
have the potential winning bidder back to the commission for ap-
proval in December.
The projects are all part of a massive $10 million upgrade of the

Largo expands grounds contract
LARGO Four commissioners agreed to save the city $6,100 by
contracting out the job of one grounds maintenance worker, leaving
only three such workers to a crew that will continue to shrink as
those positions are vacated.
Two commissioners voted against the expanded contract for Bucca-
neer Landscape Management, which has been handling the additional
work since June.
"I have a problem supporting this," said Commissioner Michael
Smith.
The landscaping around Largo City Hall, which is being maintained
by Buccaneer, hasn't been a suitable first impression for visitors to
the city, he explained.
'The outside of it is looking really rough," he said.
Smith said he supported the concept of contracting out mowing
and grounds maintenance work in order to eventually save the city
about $126,000 when the commission first discussed the idea in May.
But he voted against the most recent contract expansion on Nov. 7,
along with Commissioner Harriet Crozier and now retired Commis-
sioner Gigi Amtzen. With Mayor Pat Gerard absent, the result was a
3-3 vote that delayed the decision.
City staff clarified that they were working toward replacing the re-
maining grounds maintenance crew with contractors in order to real-
ize the projected $126,000 in savings. The city already saved about
$62,700 when Buccaneer Landscaping was awarded a two-year con-
tract to cover the work of three staff vacancies in June. When an addi-
tional grounds worker left shortly thereafter, the maintenance of
Ulmer Park, Largo Municipal Complex and the Largo Community
Center also went to Buccaneer.
Crozier said she was already against contracting out the work, but
especially objected to non-city workers maintaining the "prime proper-
ty" of City Hall and Largo Community Center.
"It's one thing that you're going to get rid of this department, but I
don't think, at this time, I like the idea of giving prime property to an
outsider," she said. "(The) three workers, as a team, I think they
should take care of our prime property."
The city's Communications Workers of America group was against
the contract altogether, said representative Dawn Smolowitz.
'Though city administration says the service is acceptable, it's not
superior service that the employee is expected to maintain," she said.
"We believe $6,100 in savings isn't worth the loss of the superior serv-
ices to the city and its community."
Commissioner Robert Murray said that while he agreed with some
of the union's arguments, the issue came down to balancing the
budget.

The Kiwanis Club of Seminole honored veterans from all areas of
the armed forces at Freedom Square on Thursday, Nov. 8. The
Club gave each vet a commemorative pin for their dedicated
service to their country. The program consisted of songs, videos
and a memorial service for those who made the ultimate sacrifice
for their country. Above, veterans demonstrate the correct way to
fold a flag.

"We had to cut expenditures to match revenues. This was one of
those attempts that we were doing to do that," he said. "It's not like
we're putting somebody on the street and removing someone from
that position."
Commissioner Curtis Holmes objected to the argument that quality
of grounds work around City Hall had suffered.
"For a November horticulture, it looks pretty good to me," he said.
"If we can get basically the same job done no offense, but this isn't
rocket science. This is cutting the lawn. For $6,100, we need to save
the folks the money."
Holmes asked if Buccaneer's services were adequate. Parks Super-
visor Greg Brown said it was, but explained that the number of visits
to properties had fallen given the winter season. The commission
could request a higher level of service from the contractors for any
property they maintained, but the work would have to be rebid, and
the price would increase, parks staff explained.

Pair of Christmas tree farms are in the area


We may not be dashing through the woods in a one-horse open
sleigh, but we can still have a fresh cut Christmas tree in Florida.
The family tradition of going to the forest, picking out a tree and
cutting it down is still available to us.
There are two tree farms close to Pinellas County: Ergle Christmas
Tree Farm and Lazy Lay Acres, both in Dade City. You can get details
at www.flchristmastrees.com/Index.htm
Besides making memories while having a fun family outing, there
are some other good reasons to choose a live Christmas tree. A single
farmed tree absorbs more than a
ton of carbon dioxide throughout Growing Wise
its lifespan. With as many as 350
million Christmas trees growing Jane Morse
on 500,000 acres of farmland IUi' UNIVERSITY of
across the United states, that can U FLORIDA
add up to 350 million tons of se- sI F.rn .
questered carbon dioxide. One
acre of these trees provides enough daily oxygen for 18 people. That
is enough oxygen for 9 million people! Add to this the space and
habitat they provide for all kinds of critters and live trees are a sweet
deal.
Christmas tree harvesting does not upset the ecology. It is the rule
of thumb for tree farmers to plant two to three trees for every one
that is cut. That means for the 33 million trees harvested, about 99
million will be planted this spring.
Real trees also can be recycled and this is a leading reason why
many experts agree they are more environmentally friendly than their
plastic counterparts. Trees can be recycled into mulch and used in
landscaping and gardening, or chipped and used for hiking trails,
paths and walkways. They also can be used for erosion prevention,
lake and river shoreline stabilization, and fish and wildlife habitat.
About 33 million real Christmas trees are sold in North America
every year and about 93 percent of those are recycled.
Fresh trees also hold onto their needles, have a good fragrance,
green color and will retain their moisture content. Moist trees are less
likely to catch fire than dry or artificial trees. Keep your tree watered
and away from heat sources which can dry it out or cause it to catch
fire.
According to the National Christmas Tree Association, this indus-
try provides more than 100,000 Americans with jobs, which is good
Brooker to host orchid program
TARPON SPRINGS -A free program on orchids and epiphytes of
Brooker Creek Preserve will be presented Saturday, Jan. 5, 10:30
a.m. to noon, at Brooker Creek Preserve, 3940 Keystone Road.
Naturalist James Stevenson will explore the world of orchids
and air plants found on the preserve. Advance registration is re-
quired. Call 453-6800 or visit www.brookercreekpreserve.org.

for our economy.
If you feel badly about cutting down a tree, you might want to con-
sider purchasing a potted tree for Christmas. Southern red cedar is a
good traditional tree choice. Here are some non-traditional trees that
would do well in our area landscape after the holidays (as long as
they fit your site conditions): Dahoon holly, wax myrtle, myrsine and
marlberry.
When you get a cut tree home, recut the stump at an angle (more
surface area to absorb more water) and put it in a bucket of fresh
water. Keep it in a cool, shady spot until it is time to decorate. Re-
plenish water in the bucket often because trees can soak up a quart
or more a day. When you bring the tree inside, cut the stem flush
about two inches above the original cut so it will fit in the tree stand.
Remember to give your tree a drink of water every day to keep it fresh
and moist.

Florida website: solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/hot_topics/familiesand
_consumers/christmas_trees.html

Bridges along the Intracoastal

attract an assortment of fish


A welcome warm-up has brought our inshore
water temperature back up into the mid-60s, and
although it's been nice out there on the water, fish-
ing has been a
little tough.
High-pressure ish T
days with little Fish
cloud cover l '
mixed with the '"' .-"'
unpredictable ef-
fects of the full
moon are surely to blame. With any luck as we
move further away from this moon we should start
to see some better fishing.
Bridges along the Intracoastal Waterway have
fish of some kind hanging around them and when
the trout and redfish don't want to bite, they can
really bail you out. Usually we start thinking about
sheepshead this time of year; however, with the
warmer water temperatures we've yet to see those
big schools of sheepshead show up on the bridges.
But what the bridges may lack in sheepshead
numbers they make up for in an assortment of fish.
Everything from black drum to key west grunts and
a ton of undersized sea bass, with the occasional
keeper mixed in, can be caught on a piece of


shrimp fished on the bottom. These may not be the
most glamorous catches but they all offer a good
fight on 10-pound test and make excellent table
fare.
This is the time of year when residential dock
fishing can be very good. Long dead end canals
hold heat and the fish know that. Finding a string
of productive docks can yield redfish, black drum
and sheepshead time and time again. Think of it as
an inshore angler's version of offshore grouper fish-
ing. Places to start looking would be canals that
dead end to the north because they get more sun-
light this time of year as well as east facing sea
walls.
Water that's a degree or two warmer can be all
you need to find some good fish. Pitch live shrimp
on a small hook with a split shot or a small egg
sinker to hold bottom underneath the docks and
along the seawalls.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at
capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo in the
paper, send the photo along with your name, when
and where it was caught to editorial@TBN
weekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers,

Building Your Business...
Spirits 365 is very proud that we have been welcomed by the Seminole Residents with
open arms & we feel like a real part of the community.
We know that location is key but we realize so is good advertising.
We have not had much success with other advertising formats but we have been using a
10% off coupon within our Seminole and Beach Beacon ad and have seen our coupons
coming back into the store along with satisfied customers.
This is the first advertising project that has delivered a strong ROI for Spirits 365 and we
see it paying off every time a coupon is brought into the store.
We also used the Seminole & Beach Beacon to advertise our Grand Opening and after
putting info about our "Big Day" in the paper for 2 weeks, we had an amazing turnout.
The "papers" have a reach that we could not have achieved without advertising and we feel
that working with the Beacon has been our strongest marketing/advertising strategy to date.
Not only has placing ads with the Beacon been a smart business decision, we have
discovered how easy and friendly the staff is. They have helped us thru every step and have
been a pleasure to deal with.

Beacon, December 6, 2012


for Pinellas Heights, a 153-unit
affordable housing community for
senior citizens.
The ceremony took place at the
Pinellas County Housing Authori-
ty site at 11479 Ulmerton Road
in Largo. Norstar Development
USA, LP and the Pinellas County
Housing Authority are co-devel-
opers for the project.
"Today was another step for-
ward for the Pinellas County
Housing Authority in providing
more affordable housing to the
citizens we serve," said housing
authority Chairman Joseph Trio-
lo. "I am honored to be a part of
this great organization."
Pinellas Heights is a mixed-fi-
nance redevelopment of the for-
mer Greenhouse Shoppes
commercial strip center, eight
acres owned by the city of Largo.
The former strip center was large-
ly vacant and in need of signifi-
cant repair.
The new mixed-finance com-
munity of 153 apartment homes
will provide additional affordable
housing for seniors, ages 62 and
older, with incomes less than 60
percent of the area median in-
come. The apartment homes are
scheduled to be ready for occu-
pancy by summer 2014.
"It was a delight to work with
the Pinellas County Housing Au-
thority on the Pinellas Heights
project," said Richard Higgins,
president of Norstar. "It was an
extremely complicated deal that
required the participation of
myriad public and private sector


organizations. In the end, it was
well worth the hard work as we
are now under construction on a
beautiful building that will house
153 low income seniors who des-
perately need affordable housing
in Pinellas County."
Along with the developers, the
U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development, Housing Fi-
nance Authority of Pinellas
County, Pinellas County Com-
munity Development, city of
Largo, RBC Capital Markets and
JP Morgan Chase provided fund-
ing for the $24 million develop-
ment. The Federal Home Loan
Bank of Atlanta also provided a
$1 million Affordable Housing
Program grant to the project.
As an additional benefit to cre-
ating more affordable housing
for Pinellas County seniors, more
than $17 million construction
dollars will be infused into the
local economy through this proj-
ect. About 200 jobs will be creat-
ed during the 18-month
construction of Pinellas Heights,
and additional jobs will be creat-
ed for management and mainte-
nance of the development. The
total impact is expected to be
395 jobs including direct, indi-
rect, and induced.

Obama's victory


still in dispute in


a Florida court
The state of Florida, now known as much for election controversies
as oranges and sunshine, may still hold a surprise for everyone who
thought the 2012 presidential election was over and done with.
In a largely forgotten court case being litigated in Tallahassee,
lawyers are still arguing about whether President Barack Obama was
qualified to run for

place.
Attorney Larry E.
Klayman of Washing- Florida Voices
ton, D.C., a contro-
versial Republican Angel Castillo Jr.
activist, and his
client, Michael C.
Voeltz, a registered
Democrat from
Broward County,
have refused to concede the election outcome. They are still pursuing
an Obama "birther" challenge in an appeal in Tallahassee.
The judges of the Florida First District Court of Appeal have refused
to submit the case immediately to the Florida Supreme Court, as re-
quested by Klayman. On Nov. 27 they also refused a Klayman request
that the court handle the appeal on an expedited basis.
Klayman is advancing two arguments: (1) Obama has never estab-
lished that he is a "natural born citizen" as required under Article II of
the U.S. Constitution because his Hawaii birth certificate posted online
"has either been altered or is entirely fraudulent"; and (2) Obama was
born to a mother who was a United States citizen and a father who
was a citizen of Kenya, and to be a "natural born citizen" a candidate
for president must have been born in this country to two U.S. citizen
parents.
Unfortunately, the term "natural born citizen" is not defined in the
Constitution.
Klayman began his legal challenge by filing suit in the state circuit
court in Tallahassee in February, asking Circuit Judge Terry P. Lewis
to declare that Obama was not constitutionally eligible to run for presi-
dent.
Obama's lawyers relied on an 1898 decision by the U.S. Supreme
Court, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, which held that every person
"born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, be-
comes at once a citizen of the United States". In that case which did
not involve a president's qualifications a cook born in San Francisco
whose parents were both Chinese citizens living in this country was
held to be a U.S. citizen at birth under the Fourteenth Amendment.
In June, agreeing with Obama's lawyers, Judge Lewis granted their
motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
In his appeal, Klayman is arguing that being a U.S. "citizen" and a
"natural born citizen" qualified to run for president are not constitu-
tional equivalents.
He is arguing that the authors of Article II consulted and relied on a
1758 treatise by Swiss legal expert Emmerich de Vattel called 'The
Law of Nations". That treatise states that "natural born citizens are
those born in the country of parents who are citizens" and that "the
country of the father is the country of the son".
The task of defining who is a "natural born citizen" could end up be-
fore the U.S. Supreme Court. Of course, by then the president may
well have finished his second term.

Things to think


about when you


make a 911 call

If you ever have an emergency and need to call 911, every second
counts.
But it can be difficult to think clearly in an emergency situation.
With that in mind, here are seven tips from Sunstar Paramedics for
doing what you can to be helpful to emergency personnel when you
call.
Do your best to
stay calm. Whether
you are giving your
address or a descrip-
tion of the situation, As I See It
it can be hard to un- Rob Smith
derstand the infor-
mation if you are
talking too fast or -
yelling into the
phone. The 911 op-
erators are highly trained professionals who are experts on giving you
instructions, whether someone is bleeding, needs CPR or having a
baby. They will walk you through what to do, no matter what the situ-
ation is.
Know where you are when you call. If you are on a cell phone, we
may not be able to exactly pinpoint where you are electronically. Know
the address if you can, or at least the general location, and offer de-
scriptors (near, next to, across from).
Don't get frustrated if the operator is systematic in asking ques-
tions. We have a methodical, effective approach in asking questions in
a specific order. Know that this is the best way to get the information
we need, and that all the questions won't take more than a minute to
get through.
We may try to have you help the situation, while we're on our way.
For example, if it's clear that an elderly person would be better off on
the floor instead of in a chair, we may ask you to move the person. On
average, response time is four minutes, and in the meantime, we want
to do all we can to help right away. We'll offer instructions on how to
help without putting you in harm's way.
If you're not certain about a situation, make the call anyway. We
have nonemergency lines available for situations that aren't urgent,
but if you think it's an emergency or could become one, call 911. Also,
don't assume that somebody else has already called.
Don't hang up. If our lines are busy and we can't answer the
phone immediately, hanging up and calling back will place you at the
end of the queue. Also, don't give information and then immediately
hang up: Stay on the line until we advise otherwise.
Don't hesitate to call again if anything changes. If the person's
condition worsens, call us back and tell us what's going on. As just
one example, let's say that a bee sting initially doesn't seem to be a


major problem, but then the person who was stung starts to have
trouble breathing. Call us back!
Rob Smith is director of communications and emergency management
for Sunstar Paramedics, which provides ambulance services for all of
Pinellas County.

Cliff Notes, fiscal and otherwise


With all the current fuss about our nation
falling off a fiscal cliff, I've been thinking
about cliffs in general. I tried to remember
the last time I even got close to a real, honest-
to-God cliff. For the life of me I can recall only
a couple.
One of them was at the Grand Canyon of
the Colorado River, which is loaded with
cliffs. In fact, the whole durned place is little
except one continuous cliff. It runs up one
side of the river and down the other, with a
whole mess of side cliffs. I enjoyed standing
on those cliffs, as long as I was about 80
yards back from the edge.
One of the things I liked about living in
Florida was the general absence of cliffs. Al-
though the state could actually use a few just
to liven up the landscape. Florida has a great
deal of beauty, but it comes mostly in the
form of birds, flowers, beaches, and azure
waters. If you've ever driven Alligator Alley,
you know how that stretch of highway could
use an occasional cliff, just to keep you
awake. In lieu of cliffs, however, you can
count alligators.
Florida has dozens of swamps. Is a swamp
more dangerous than a cliff? If so, why aren't
the politicians talking about our need to keep
from falling into a swamp? Which would be
worse: a fiscal swamp or a fiscal cliff? These
economic conundrums could drive us insane,
if we took time to think about them, which
few of us do.
I've known a number of men and boys
named Cliff. If memory serves me, they have
been pretty decent guys. Few of them have
been brilliant, but that's okay. Most of the
brilliant people I've lived around have been
pains. People named Cliff are usually trust-


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


a


worthy, competent and married to lovely
women named Grace or Ramona. If you don't
believe that statement, just check it out next
time you meet a Cliff. Especially if he is an
accountant, banker or stockbroker. They are
the original Fiscal Cliffs.
Isn't it a bit late for the country to be in a
tizzy about falling over a fiscal cliff? We actu-
ally fell off the Wall Street cliff more than four
years ago. You can still count the mangled
bodies and wrecked homes lying at the base
of the cliff. Today if you stand in a crowd and
toss 20 pinto beans into the air, at least 10 of
them will land on someone who's fallen off
his/her own fiscal cliff, and who may still be
falling.
Even in good times, most people live on the
edge of a fiscal cliff. Sooner or later we are all
cliff dwellers, aren't we? And you can't tell
who is or is not a cliff dweller just by appear-
ances. Here comes Reginald Wanker in his
new Maserati, with his gorgeous girl friend
Botox Beulah by his side. You'd never guess
that Reggie was a cliff dweller, but he is. If he
misses a couple of payments to his bank or
his bookie, he's gone.
Other kinds of cliffs abound, not just fiscal.
One of the most common is the romantic cliff.
Millions of couples are wandering around,


stars in their eyes, believing they have found
the perfect mates, not knowing that their
sweethearts may well be perfidious hound
dogs who will desert them within a year, tak-
ing their bank accounts and the good silver
with them. If fiscal cliffs have a common
theme song, it may be the wedding march.
Oddly enough, many people who have sur-
vived fiscal cliffs later look back without re-
gret on the entire experience. They don't deny
the horrors of being broke, but they prefer to
recall the almost joyous intensity of having
their backs against the wall and suddenly re-
alizing that, after they get through this night-
mare, nothing and nobody will ever scare
them again.
If nothing else, America's current flirtation
with the fiscal cliff has forced the two major
political parties to sit down with each other
and talk. What will come out of these discus-
sions is unclear, as I write this. But at the
very least the jawboning between Obama and
Congress is better than the mutual sniping
that's been going on for the past two years or
more.
One thing is certain: the economic alarm
bells are ringing. They're heralding a world
unlike anything we've seen before. The USA
is no longer the unchallenged alpha dog. In-
stead, we're in a global kennel, with all man-
ner of yapping and snarling going on. Sort of
makes you long for the good old days, when
the USA and the Soviet Union were the only
big dogs to worry about. Isn't it time I
dropped these canine comparisons? I think
so.

Lessons from Walkin' Lawton Chiles


It's hard to imagine in today's political cli-
mate, but Florida fairly recently had a gover-
nor who was not afraid to talk about raising
taxes.
He didn't meet and mingle with the com-
mon folks by doing monthly "work days" like
Bob Graham or Rick Scott, or call himself the
"people's governor" as Charlie Crist did. He
just walked around among us. As a major
part of his Senate campaign, he hiked about
1,000 miles to the very pinnacle of Florida
politics in 1970, served 18 years in the U.S.
Senate and then quit because, among other
things, he was sick of the constant demand
for raising money that is part of a Congress
member's daily existence.
Then, less than two years later, he came
back and became governor. His way.
Lawton Chiles was different. He called his
approach to government "more steering, less
rowing" from Tallahassee, and spoke of "right-
sizing" state agencies, rather than "down-siz-
ing." The last Democrat elected governor, he
had the misfortune to take office just as Re-
publicans were taking over the Legislature,
but that didn't stop him from proposing new
revenue sources with names like "the invest-
ment budget" or "reality budget."
He advanced health care for children, beat
Big Tobacco out of billions and spoke candidly
of his personal bout with depression. He gave
speaking turns to a few average citizens dur-
ing his inaugural address, spoke admiringly
of Czech leader Vaclav Havel, served fresh or-
ange juice to the GOP presiding officers in the
Capitol rotunda at the end of a legislative ses-
sion and mystified friend and foe alike with
aphorisms like "the he coon walks just before
the light of day."
He played the aw-shucks country boy from
"Imperial Polk County" when it suited him,
but he could follow you into a revolving door
and come out first. He frankly admitted he
had reached the "don't give a damn" stage of
life: He didn't need the money or power or
prestige, wasn't running for any higher office,
so he just did what he thought was best.

Having raised money and run campaigns,
he sometimes said his concept of ethics re-
form was, if you want a good game warden,
hire a reformed poacher "reformed" being
the operative word.
If you didn't like it, you could vote for some-
body else. A lot of people did. Chiles was re-
elected by fewer than 65,000 votes in 1994 -
barely beating a fella named Jeb Bush in the
year of the "Gingrich Revolution," when Re-
publicans wiped out virtually every other old-
line Democrat in the country. It was a second
term that, sadly, Chiles was not to complete.
He died at the Governor's Mansion 23 days
before the inauguration of Bush, who made a
comeback against Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay in
1998.
An important, entertaining new biography
of Chiles has just been written by John Dos
Passos Coggin, who spent years interviewing
more than 100 Chiles associates to produce a
detailed narrative from Chiles' boyhood in
Lakeland to his death at age 67. "Walkin'
Lawton," published by the Florida Historical
Society Press in Cocoa, reads like oral history,
rather than biography, a series of conversa-
tions with those who worked for, with or
against Chiles over the years.
A grandson of the famous author whose
name he bears, Coggin is a graduate of Yale
and the University of Maryland school of pub-
lic policy. He lives in Annapolis and worked in
the Howard Dean campaign for president in
2004, then moved to Orlando to work with
the League of Conservation Voters for Sen.
John Kerry. That's where he heard about
Chiles and became interested in his unique,


colorful career.
Coggin found there was not much scholarly
research about him, so he approached the
Chiles family. First Lady Rhea Chiles wrote a
cover blurb and such old friends as former
U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn of Georgia, who served
with Chiles in Washington and contributed a
warm introduction for the book.
As most politically interested Floridians
know, Chiles was a state legislator from Lake-
land in the 1950s and 1960s, when the rural
"Pork Chop Gang" was slowly, unwillingly
yielding to the legal and historical forces of re-
districting, urbanization and integration of
post-War Florida. In 1970, the little-known
state senator walked from the Alabama bor-
der town of Century to the tip of the Florida
peninsula, talking and listening to whomever
he met and beating the incumbent House
speaker and a former governor for the Demo-
cratic U.S. Senate nomination.
After three terms, Chiles retired from the
Senate and could have had a high-pay, low-
work faculty sinecure at Florida State Univer-
sity. But in 1990, with Republican Gov. Bob
Martinez very vulnerable but then-Congress-
man (now U.S. Senator) Bill Nelson looking
unlikely to beat him, Chiles came out of re-
tirement and teamed up with MacKay as the
Democratic "dream ticket." They limited their
campaign contributions to $100 per donor
(upstaging lesser-known pols who couldn't af-
ford such virtue), wore Madras plaid, walked
around town squares and easily ousted Mar-
tinez in 1990. The rest, as they say, is history.
It's usually not good for biographers to ad-
mire their subjects, but Coggin makes it
work. 'Walkin' Lawton" is a valuable contribu-
tion for students of Florida history too young
to remember Chiles and an enjoyable, au-
thoritative look back for those of us who knew
him.

Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleve-

Hugh Jackman, J.C.
Chasez, Matt Scannell and
Sara Niemietz. For more
than 20 years, Marx has

made his mark on the music

"Don't Mean Nothing" and Richard Marx plays Clearwater's
self-titled debut album Capitol Theatre on Dec. 1 and 4.

ence on a musical journey. This show incorporates stunning video

music begins. It's as if Sinatra walked off of the screen and on to
the stage to perform for the audience. Visit www.itwasavery

Jones and Dennis Quaid

Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones
and Dennis Quaid star in "Playing For Keeps," a romantic comedy
about a charming, down-on-his luck former soccer star (Butler) who
returns home to put his life back together.
Looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son, he gets
roped into coaching the boy's soccer team. But his attempts to finally
become an "adult" are met with hilarious challenges from the attrac-
tive "soccer moms" who pursue him at every turn.
The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks
before these films appear in local movie theaters.

Treadaway, Fenella Woolgar, Zoe Tapper, Oily Alexander, Emil Lager,

England, 1932 ... today is Dolly Thatchum's wedding day, and her
family is arriving at the manor house with all the cheerfulness, chaos
and grievances that bubble to the surface at such gatherings.
Trouble soon appears in the shape of Joseph, Dolly's lover from the
previous summer, who throws her feelings into turmoil. Dolly's moth-
er will not allow her carefully laid plans for her daughter's future to
be threatened, and as the clock ticks the bride can't decide whether
to run away with Joseph or start a new life in Argentina with her

and Kerry Bishe (Newlyweds, Red State), Bums seamlessly weaves an
ensemble story of adult siblings dealing with the desire of their es-

New York the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to Ameri-
ca. With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are
desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must
be juggled with the complexities of FDR's domestic establishment.

gether, they create a sound rich in Carolina soul with hypnotizing
four-part boy/girl harmonies. Think Americana meets alternative
meets bluegrass meets pop. The band puts on an incredible live per-

Opening this week

Pitt, Gandolfini and Liotta star in crime drama 'Killing Them Softly'


Entertainment 5B


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE
A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the
following films opening in wide release:

'The Collection'
Genre: Horror
Cast: Josh Stewart, Emma Fitzpatrick and Christopher McDonald
Director: Marcus Dunstan
Rated: R
When Elena's (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party
at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the
latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer.
The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel
he's transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon
learning of his daughter's disappearance, Elena's wealthy father
(Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her
from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin
(Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous
monster, to lead them through the gruesome labyrinth.
Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save
Elena.

'Killing Them Softly'
Genre: Crime drama
Cast: Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Sam Rockwell, Richard Jenkins,
Bella Heathcote, Vincent Curatola, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben
Mendelsohn and Linara Washington
Director: Andrew Dominik
Rated: R
A longtime hanger-on in the wiseguy world, Johnny Amato (Vincent
Curatola) has come up with a slick plan to roll a mob-protected card
game.
To complete the actual theft, Johnny turns to Frankie (Scoot Mc-
Nairy), a jittery young crook who is fresh out of jail and flat broke, and
Russell (Ben Mendelsohn), a gleefully seedy Australian junkie whose
latest criminal enterprise involves dog theft. Presidential politics and
America's financial crisis are all over the news, but it's little more than
background noise to these three guys who are angling to make a quick
score in a broken-down city. The conspirators feel assured of success,
certain as they are that the mob's suspicions will immediately fall on
the game's regular dealer, Markie Trattman (Ray Liotta).
But only a fool believes in a foolproof plan. With more bluster than
brains, Frankie and Russell manage to pull off the robbery and escape
without being recognized. But while Frankie, Russell and Johnny are
busy congratulating themselves, the mob is taking steps to nip any

problems in the bud by bringing in the seasoned enforcer Jackie
Cogan (Brad Pitt) to investigate the heist and restore the status quo.
Punishment must be exacted, but even more a message must be sent,
to customers and would-be thieves alike: nothing and no one will be
allowed to capsize the local criminal economy.
Jackie brings his customary professionalism to the assignment, only
to find himself navigating frustrating complications, including a finicky
client that communicates through a buttoned-up middle-manager
(Richard Jenkins), and a trusted colleague (James Gandolfini) who has
turned surprisingly unpredictable. In the end, it is up to Jackie un-
flappable, efficient and thoroughly versed in the vagaries of killing to
get the job done right.
The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks be-
fore these films appear in local movie theaters.

'Dragon'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Donnie Yen, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Tang Wei and Jimmy Wang
Yu
Director: Peter Ho-Sun Chan
Rated: R
Liu Jin-xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably
shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general
store.
When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper's life, he comes
under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Kaneshiro). Convinced that
Liu's martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of
the region's vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero and
draws the attention of China's criminal underworld in the process.

'Silent Night'
Genre: Horror and thriller
Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Jamie King, Donal Logue, Ellen Wong,
Lisa Marie and Brendan Fehr
Director: Steven C. Miller
Rated: R
In 1984, the slasher classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night" stunned au-
diences, was banned across America, and remains the most notorious
Christmas movie in history.
Now, Santa is back, and he's got a brand new bag of tricks. As their
small Midwestern town prepares for its annual Christmas Eve parade,
Sheriff (Malcolm McDowell) and his deputy (Jaime King) discover that
a maniac in a Santa suit is murdering those he judges as "naughty."
Their sins? Porn, adultery, greed ... and he will make sure they rest in
heavenly pieces.
