Priority dispatch

moves forward
Despite opposition, Pinellas County
Commissioners agreed at a Dec. 6 work
session to put a resolution dealing with
911 priority dispatch on a meeting agen-
da in January. The resolution would in-
clude current practices and processes
regarding handling of 911 calls, as well
as phase 1, 2 and 3 of medical priority
dispatch. However, the city of Belleair
Bluffs passed a resolution in opposition
to phase 3, as did Dunedin, Pinellas
Park, Safety Harbor, St. Petersburg,
South Pasadena, as well as fire districts
in East Lake, Lealman, Palm Harbor and
the Pinellas Suncoast. Largo, Seminole
and St. Pete Beach passed resolutions in
support.

Group donates

$8,000 to Largo
The Friends of Largo Nature Parks do-
nated more than $8,000 to the Largo
City Commission Dec. 4, the largest such
donation to date. 'This is a giant mo-
ment for us. It's the first ever we've been
able to bring a check to the city commis-
sion," said Friends President Pat Ed-
mond. The money will go to the repair of
the boardwalk at Bonner Park.

Developers eye Tides Golf Club


County official says tentative plans call for a 180-home development


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE At least two de-
velopers have expressed interest
in pursuing county zoning and
land use changes that would
open the door for the redevelop-
ment of the Tides Golf Club at
11832 66th Ave.
John Cueva, zoning manager
for the Pinellas County Plan-
ning Department, said one of
the two unidentified developers
has indicated his company will
meet the county's Jan. 10 dead-
line to submit an application to
make the necessary changes.
The 150-acre site, which fea-
tures 1,732 feet of waterfront
space on Boca Ciega Bay, is
currently zoned Agricultural Es-
tate and carries a land use des-
ignation of Recreation Open
Space. Both would need to be
changed to Residential Planned
Development.
Cueva said tentative plans
call for 2.5 units per acre,
which would allow for 180 sin-
gle-family homes and two-story
townhomes.
'We currently have no appli-
cation in hand but we're expect-
ing them to file by Jan. 10,
which is the next deadline,"
said Cueva. "If they don't meet
that deadline, the next deadline
would be Feb. 14. We have
deadlines every month."
Cueva said it would be a six-


month process for approval. If
the developer meets the Jan. 10
deadline, the proposal would go
to the Local Planning Agency
April 11, back to the County
Commission, May 21; Pinellas
Planning Council, July 10; and
back to the County Commission
on Aug. 6.
Sven Nelson, general manag-
er of the Tides, said he has
heard rumors about a potential
sale of the property but nothing
that's definite.
"We've had tons of tire kick-
ers," Nelson said. "There have
been tons of people looking at
the property. At this point, it's
business as usual at the Tides."
According to the Pinellas
County Property Appraiser's Of-
fice, the site is owned by Redus
Florida Properties LLC of Jack-
sonville, a subsidiary of Wells
Fargo Bank.
Efforts to reach Redus offi-
cials were unsuccessful.
The golf course, clubhouse
and garage have an appraised
value of $1.842 million, which
produced $36,804 in county ad
valorem tax revenue in 2012.
The golf course, designed by
David Arthur Gill, opened in
1972. The par-72 layout plays
at 6,329 yards from the long
tees.
The Arnold Palmer Property
Management Group manages it
for Wells Fargo.

City's annual Winterfest
By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE The weather may be balmy but
children will have an opportunity to chill for a
while when the city's 12th annual Winterfest
Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting takes place
Friday, Dec. 14, at the Seminole Recreation
Center.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. and continues
to 9 p.m. Admission is free.
The featured entertainment is 20 tons of
manufactured snow that will give kids the
chance to slide down three runs on "snow
mountain." All sledding gear is provided by the
city.


celebration set Dec. 14
The city's annual tree lighting will take place
at 6:15 p.m., which will coincide with a musi-
cal program by the Seminole High School cho-
rus and a dance performance by the Star
Struck Dance Studio.
Santa Claus will make an appearance at 7
p.m. Parents are advised to bring their cam-
eras.
Other amenities include the sale of air brush
tattoos, which will serve as a fundraiser for the
Recreation Center's teen board, and food for
purchase by Seminole Professional Firefighters
Local 2896.
Plans also include hayrides and holiday
crafts.


The 150-acre Tides Golf Club in
Seminole could be redeveloped into a
180-home community. According to
county officials, at least two developers
have expressed interest in the property.


Morroni calls for


end to dispute


over health care


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas
County called a press confer-
ence Dec. 7 to talk about the
ongoing contract dispute be-
tween United Healthcare Servic-
es Inc. and BayCare Health
Systems.
Pinellas County Commission
Chair John Morroni said the
two entities should "be good cit-
izens and come together to re-
solve their differences."
United Healthcare and Bay-
Care were unable to resolve dif-
ferences and their contract
expired Nov. 26. Now persons
with insurance through United
must pay higher out-of-network
costs to continue to use doctors
and facilities in the BayCare
system.
"As United Healthcare cus-
tomers, we share the same con-
cerns about the withdrawal of
BayCare Health System from
the network and the impact it
has on our employees and the
community," Morroni said.
"Many thousands of people are
experiencing a disruption in
their health care coverage and
face an uncertain economic fu-
ture in their health care costs.
This is personal and extremely
difficult for our impacted em-
ployees and their families."
Morroni asked that the two
sides "exercise corporate re-
sponsibility and good steward-
ship, put aside all purely selfish
interests, end polarization and
intransigence and come togeth-
er in good faith to resolve differ-
ences in the public interest."
Morroni said Pinellas County
wasn't taking sides in the dis-
pute.
"There's not a bad guy," he
said. 'They have to work togeth-
er. It's all about the money."
County Administrator Bob
LaSala said the county's 8,000


employees and their dependents
were being forced to either use
different facilities and doctors or
pay higher out-of-network
charges. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri
said the situation was the same
for his 6,000-plus employees,
dependents and retirees. The
cities of Largo, St. Petersburg
and Tampa also are experienc-
ing the same issue, as are pri-
vate employers, such as Tech
Data.
'Tens of thousands are affect-
ed," LaSala said.
Not only are employees pay-
ing higher costs for health care,
but the employers as well.
"This is not a public health
crisis," he said, as people in-
sured by United can see other
doctors and use other facilities.
He said it was psychological as
well as financial.
"People are very much con-
nected to their doctors," he said.
Gualtieri said the sheriffs
health plan was separate from
the county's even though both
use the same insurance
provider. He said the dispute
was having "substantial conse-
quences for many people" and
his office was actively exploring
options and looking at different
networks.
"We want them to fix it. Get it
right," he said.
He said if the two couldn't
reach terms, providing health
care for his employees would
cost an extra $2 million.
'That would be a huge impact
on us," he said.
He said it was understand-
able that employees would want
to use what are now out-of-net-
work services to maintain conti-
nuity of care. He said the
Sheriff's Office would likely
make a decision on the matter
the first part of next week. He

County moves forward with plans for priority dispatch


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Despite opposition, Pinellas County Commission-
ers agreed at a Dec. 6 work session to put a resolution dealing with
911 priority dispatch on a meeting agenda in January.
The resolution would include current practices and processes re-
garding handling of 911 calls, as well as phase 1, 2 and 3 of medical
priority dispatch.
However, the city of Belleair Bluffs passed a resolution in opposition
to phase 3, as did Dunedin, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, St. Peters-
burg, South Pasadena, as well as fire districts in East Lake, Lealman,
Palm Harbor and the Pinellas Suncoast. Largo, Seminole and St. Pete
Beach passed resolutions in support.
Pinellas County implemented phase 1 of priority dispatch in April
2009. It consolidated 911 functions into one call center for an annual
savings of $500,000.
Phase 2 was put into practice December 2010, which reduced am-
bulance responses by about 5.6 percent a year, resulting in reduced
ambulance costs.
Phase 3 would eliminate the use of first responders for minor falls
and sick person calls. First responders would continue to go out to all
life-threatening calls and all other low severity calls. Staff estimates
that first responses would be reduced by about 14,000 calls a year for
a 10 percent reduction. They say the change also would reduce com-
plaints from the public and elected officials about dual response to
every emergency call.
Phase 3 dispatch is endorsed and approved by the EMS medical di-
rector, EMS Medical Control Board, the EMS Management Committee
and EMS Advisory Council, which under normal circumstances would
be enough to put it into practice.
But the issue of emergency response and transport is a sore subject
in Pinellas. Many of those opposed say now is not the right time. They
want to delay implementation until after results come back from a
study on potential changes to the EMS system.


Commissioner Susan Latvala said implementation of the change to
911 dispatch had nothing to do with the study and agreed with staff
that it was time to move forward. She said it could be years before any-
thing came from the study.
Commissioner Ken Welch disagreed, saying the timing could be bet-
ter due to the continued divide over fire-based transport versus use of
a private ambulance provider.
Currently for every 911 call that has a response, four to six person-
nel in two units go out. Implementation of phase 3 would mean that
only two personnel and one unit, an ambulance, would respond to
calls about falls and sick persons. Currently, 71.5 percent of people
with minor falls or are sick are transported by ambulance.
Staff presented a list of 40 items that would receive ambulance re-
sponse only under phase 3. It included falls with injuries to body areas
described as "not dangerous" and injuries from falls that happened
more than six hours prior. No priority symptoms also made the list, as
did blood pressure abnormalities, dizziness, fever, insomnia, constipa-
tion, ring cut-off requests, deafness, hemorrhoids, hiccups, itching,
stuck objects, swallowed objects, rashes, toothaches and infected
wounds.
Staff argued that by eliminating first responders from those calls
people with serious medical emergencies could be better served. They
cited an incident when first responders were on a "minor" call and un-
available for a cardiac arrest, which delayed that patient's ability to get
timely emergency care.
In the past 10 years, the number of 911 calls has gone up by 28
percent. Implementation of phase 3 dispatch would provide cost con-
tainment, staff said. They had no estimates of possible savings.

Average response time for a "downgraded" call would be an average
of two minutes, 44 seconds longer. If an ambulance can't respond
within 15 minutes, a first responder unit would be sent. If an ambu-
lance needs assistance, a first responder unit would be available
The opposition says that phase 3 dispatch would lower the level of
service to which county residents are accustomed.
In the resolution from the city of Belleair Bluffs, the commission
says "the dispatch of only a private ambulance to service calls removes
the city of Belleair Bluffs' first responders from providing service to its
citizens, thereby privatizing the response to service calls."
The other cities and fire districts had the same complaint, among
others.
Mark Weinkrantz, chairman of the East Lake Fire Commission, said
he understood the need for the county to save money, but pointed out
that staff was unable to put a dollar figure on savings from phase 3
dispatch.
He said in East Lake emergency calls "weren't just a number. They
are people we're responsible for. We don't oppose this as a concept. We
ask that you slow down and take a look at the Fitch study and consid-
er those findings in the redo."
He said the people of East Lake said they wanted three fire stations
when only two are required.
'This undermines the wishes of the people," he said.
Latvala said East Lake was welcome to do more to serve its citizens.
"You can choose to do more," she said. "You can choose to have fire
trucks circulate through your neighborhoods all day."
Weinkrantz asked how they would know that a call had come in
since only Sunstar would receive the call.

Concerned Pinellas County residents converged on Congressman Bill Young's office in Seminole Dec.
10 to get a commitment from him to extend the middle class tax cuts, make the richest 2 percent in
the nation pay their fair share in taxes, and protect Medicare, Medicaid, education and other vital
services from cuts. As part of a national day of action, community members assembled at the Seminole
Library to demand his commitments to these issues. Young was not there.

BBB warns about gift card purchases


Gift cards may take the guesswork out of gift
giving, but you sure don't want to leave the recipi-
ent feeling bamboozled.
"Gift cards make excellent presents, especially
when you're unsure of what to buy for a family
member or friend," said Karen Nalven, president of
BBB serving West Florida. "However, it's important
to read the fine print before buying to understand
if there are any hidden fees or strings attached."
Both the United States and Canada have recent-
ly made changes in federal laws to improve con-
sumers' chances of getting full value out of the
cards they buy and give. These rules generally
apply to gift certificates, store gift cards and gener-
al use prepaid cards, which are often branded by
payment networks such as Visa or MasterCard.
Here are some helpful tips from BBB regarding
gift card purchases:
Buy from sources you know and trust. Avoid
buying gift cards from online auction sites, be-
cause the cards may be counterfeit or may have

said the decision could be to cancel the contract,
but he doesn't want to take any action that would
make the problem worse.
'This is costing about $400,000 a month. That's
taxpayer money. This needs to get resolved," he
said.
LaSala said the county didn't know enough about
the situation to blame one over the other. He was

media as to who was most responsible for the situa-
tion.
'We're dissatisfied with both parties," he said.

been obtained fraudulently.
Read the fine print before you buy. Is there a fee
to buy the card? If you buy a card by phone or on-
line, are there shipping and handling fees? If you
don't like the terms and conditions, buy else-
where.
See whether any fees will be deducted from the
card after you purchase it.
Inspect the card before you buy it. Verify that
none of the protective stickers have been removed.
Make sure that the codes on the back of the card
haven't been scratched off to reveal a PIN number.
Report any damaged cards to the store selling the
cards. Give the recipient your original receipt so
they can verify the card's purchase in case it is
lost or stolen.
Consider the financial condition of the retailer
or restaurant.

agent in the matter and "we expect them to work in
good faith."
'They're very sophisticated organizations with tal-
ented people. We thought they would have come to
a conclusion a long time ago," he said.
St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster said his employ-
ees also were impacted by the dispute and that the
city had no choice but to pass increased costs of
healthcare on to taxpayers.
He called for pressure from taxpayers to help re-
solve the matter quickly.
There's a lot of decisions to make, and we're ex-
ploring all options," he said.
United Healthcare and BayCare were invited to
the press conference but did not attend.

Group donates $8,000 to Largo
LARGO The Friends of Largo Nature Parks do-
nated more than $8,000 to the Largo City Commis-
sion Dec. 4, the largest such donation to date.
'This is a giant moment for us. It's the first ever
we've been able to bring a check to the city commis-
sion," said Friends President Pat Edmond.
The money will go to the repair of the boardwalk
at Bonner Park.
Edmond also discussed the group's work caring
for the birds of prey at the McGough Nature Center,
including four owls and a red-shouldered hawk.
"It is completely self-supporting. All of the care giv-
ing for these raptors is done by volunteers," she said.
"All the feeding and equipment are raised through
donations through strategic partnerships.
Partners include Audubon Society of Clearwater,
Progress Energy and Busch Gardens, which is pro-
viding veterinary care.
The group gave the city a check for $8,340, pre-
sented by park regulars Matilda and Cody Hoffman,
4 and 7, respectively.
'We hope to get a lot more than that this year."
Edmond said.
Parks Supervisor Greg Brown told the commission
that the group gave presentations to schoolchildren
throughout the year.
"Last year, Pat and her group saw 3,000 kids in
Pinellas County Schools," he said. 'They are a phe-
nomenal asset to the nature parks."
Over the years, the group has raised more than
$10,000 to support the parks.

Belleair Beach City Hall
defect concerns council
BELLEAIR BEACH Buckling wood panels on the
wall behind the dais in the main meeting room of
city hall have had council and city staff members
concerned over the building's condition. The city hall
was constructed in 2009 at a cost of more than $3
million, and has been a great source of pride for the
community.
Ward Friszolowski of the architectural firm Har-
vard Jolly, which was responsible for the City Hall
construction, gave a progress report on possible
causes for the problem at the Dec. 3 council meet-
ing.
'We are in the discovery phase" of evaluating the
situation, Friszolowski said.
Friszolowski pointed out excessive humidity at the
outset as a likely cause.
Outside issues, which could have allowed mois-
ture to seep into the building, have been addressed
first, he said. Almost all of the recommendations to
deal with damage from outside causes have been im-
plemented, he said. Openings in the concrete block
wall behind the panels have been sealed, Friszolows-
ki said, and coating applied underneath.
Turning up the temperature in the building to
save air conditioning costs raises humidity levels
and could have contributed to the problem. Fre-
quent rental of the building to outside groups, which
has been a moneymaker for the city, has sometimes
resulted in doors being left open. That allows heat
and humidity to enter the building and could be an-
other contributor, Friszolowski said.
'We have done a number of things to date" to help
prevent the damage from reoccurring, he said.
Friszolowski told the council that the next step is
to look at causes inside the building. That was
scheduled for the following morning when the panels
were to be removed. "We'll finish by looking from an
interior perspective," he said.
"We'll see what we see, and should know a lot
more once the panels are removed," he said.
The panels are made of Marlite, which is an engi-
neered product, 100 percent wood, about a quarter
inch thick. According to an Internet description of
the product, Marlite resists moisture and is sealed
for durability and ease of maintenance. It is also list-
ed as "rot resistant."
Friszolowski assured council member Rob Bald-
win that the repairs would be expedited so the city
hall's major gathering area would not be left in an
unfinished state for an extended period of time.
The Harvard Jolly architectural firm has agreed to
pay all costs associated with fixing the problem,
Mayor Kathy Mortensen said following the meeting.
"It's not our responsibility, it's the architect's," she
said.
The next morning, the panels were removed and
the issue was found to be less serious than expect-
ed. After examining the panels and the wall behind,
Friszolowski and his associates concluded the prob-
lem was related to expansion and contraction of the
boards. There was absolutely no evidence of mois-
ture intrusion through the wall. The buckling of the
panels is most likely due to excessive humidity in
the building, which had been a suspected cause,
Friszolowski said.
The problem is cosmetic rather than structural,
which is good news, he said.
The solution is relatively easy.
"We will install expansion/contraction joints in


the affected panels and that should eliminate the
problem," he said. It is expected the old panels can
be reused.
City Manager Nancy Gonzales was pleased to find
that more serious issues such as water intrusion
were not involved.
"I am relieved," she said after hearing the find-
ings.

Belleair considers roundabout
BELLEAIR Town commissioners heard a new
plan for revamping the intersection of Indian Rocks
Road and Ponce De Leon Boulevard and they appar-
ently liked what they saw. A presentation was made
at the Dec. 4 commission meeting, and the focal
point of the new design will be a roundabout at the
intersection.
Actually a modified version of the plan was pre-
sented to the commission several weeks ago but it
involved turning Country Club Road into a cul-de-
sac. That upset the residents who in turn convinced
the commissioners that it was a bad idea so the con-
sultants were sent back to the drawing board.
"If everybody on Country Club Road is against the
cul-de-sac then we have to find another way," said
Mayor Gary Katica.
The new plan involves taking Country Club Road,
which now comes right out into Indian Rocks Road,
and turning it to the south and onto Ponce De Leon,
west of the proposed roundabout. Residents coming
from Country Club wanting to go north on Indian
Rocks would have to turn south and make a U-turn
on Palmview.
During the discussion of the plan Commissioner
Kevin Piccarreto wondered if a series of four-way
stop signs along Indian Rocks Road might have the
desired effect of slowing traffic and discouraging mo-
torists from cutting through Belleair as they come
from Clearwater heading to the south and west.
Jamie Sweeney, of the DKS Consulting firm, replied
that it would be illegal to put up four-way stop signs
without a complete study proving the need.
'We have found in the past that if you put up too
many four-way stops people will just ignore them
and drive right through, and that's dangerous," he
said.
Mayor Gary Katica agreed.
"Our own analysis shows that the intersection in
town which has the most accidents is the one where
we have the four-way stop."
Police Chief Tom Edwards confirmed that the in-
tersection of Indian Rocks Road and Poinsettia has
had the most accidents over the last three years.
Resident Bob Carrone was livid with the proposed
plan and berated commissioners for even consider-
ing it.
"I use Ponce and Indian Rocks every day and the
four-way works," he said. "Why spend so much
money on this. Why not spend the money where it is
needed on repairing the roads in our town. This is
ridiculous; this is a waste."
But others disagreed. Karen Hagan Mench said
she and her family like the plan.

Noise gets on IRB
residents' nerves
INDIAN ROCKS BEACH "Turn down the noise"
was the common theme of a special meeting on the
state of law enforcement in Indian Rocks Beach. The
meeting, on Thursday, Nov. 29, was held in response
to residents' complaints about treatment they receive
from patrolling deputies. Yet motorcycle noise domi-
nated the night with resident after resident com-
plaining about it.
Twelve year IRB resident Mike Zender said the
noise has gotten progressively worse over the years.
"I think it is the number of establishments on Gulf
Boulevard which sell liquor," he said. "It is attracting
the wrong kind of crowd. I know the officers are
doing the best they can but it isn't working. I threat-
ened to tape the noise and then come to a commis-
sion meeting and play it while you are trying to
conduct business then you'll see what I mean."
Zender said the Sheriffs Office should provide a
deputy on patrol in the evening just to monitor the
noise situation and to have that deputy trained and
certified in reading noise meters.
Commissioner Jim Labadie said the motorcycle
noise was out of control.
"I've been told that there isn't enough manpower
to dedicate solely to the motorcycle noise," he said.
"But we somehow have to make bikers aware of our
laws. I appreciate the sheriffs efforts but we need
help in that area."
Resident Todd Plumlee weighed in on the situa-
tion.
"Most of those bikers don't live here," he said.
"They just come out here to cruise the beach; they
might stop in at our restaurants but mostly they are
just cruising. We have to establish a reputation and
make it a hassle for those bikers with illegal ex-
hausts and noisy machines."

TREASURE ISLAND Award-winning Treasure Island Art Guild
members George Avery, Arlene Kitchin, Doug Land, Ruth Philipon and
Arlene Shoemaker are exhibiting their works at the Treasure Island
Community Center through Jan. 2.
With vibrant primary colors and boundless originality, the oil paint-
ings of Avery give us castles and dragons in 'The Guardian," a cast of
imaginary friends in "The Man in the Moon," and "Safe Harbor," where


a sense of serenity prevails. As a World War II combat veteran, Avery
shows, in "War and Harmony," a stark contrast between reality and a
world we can see only through his eyes.
Kitchin, whose work reflects her approach to living and loving life,
captures in acrylics, the acrobatics of a "Flippin' Dolphin," a dynamic
composition that describes the momentum of a "Sailboat Race," and
the spirited character of "Bucky the Pirate." An egret in watercolor, "01'

Bird" slows down the pace as he poses to watch the world go by.
Shoemaker, a pastel artist who will always be a student, uses the
visible brushstrokes and luscious colors of Impressionism, to describe
"Path by the Bay," "Cozumel Shopping" and the heart of "River Street
Savannah" lined with artisans. 'Tourist Trap" suggests an off the beat-
en track shanty that draws us to fun and interesting.
"Court sketch" reflects Land's ability as a courtroom sketch artist.
Teaching is also a rewarding part of his career. His keen perception of
values is evident in the lithograph "A Leader" and graphite pencil gives
us a misty view of "The Vinoy Hotel, St. Petersburg, Fla." Oil-based col-
ored pencil creates the flowing folds of a dress embracing the feminini-
ty of "The Model."
The spirit of her extensive world travel experiences permeates the
creative imagery of Philipon. With mixed media and an exemplary use
of color, texture and design, she gives us "The Gentle Wind," "Holding
Together" and "Enthusiasm," a series of visual works related to "I
Ching," a classic Chinese book of wisdom. "Legacy China" is an acrylic
and paper collage on canvas.

Trout fishing should be strong through new moon phase


A week's worth of great weather has helped to bring concentrations
of bait fish back into our near shore waters. Schools of threadfin her-
ring could be seen raining on the surface in the early morning this
past weekend, a welcome sight for
those looking to get into some last
chance kingfish and Spanish mack- Fish Tales
erel. Fish Tales
Shallow reefs as close as three ',' I .."
miles have been attracting kingfish ,.-' i"'
and Spanish mackerel; troll num-
ber two planers with silver or gold
king spoons when targeting the smaller to medium sized kings and live
blue runners for the larger fish. For the mackerel downsize the spoon
to a 0 or 00 Clark spoon.


Keep an eye out when running around off shore, plenty of tripletail
are in the area and can be spotted and sight fished behind crab buoys.
A live shrimp suspended underneath a small float will usually work,
however gin clear water might have you down-sizing your leader and
ditching the float. The current regulations for tripletail are a minimum
length of 15 inches and two fish limit per person per day, hook and
line gear only.
Trout fishing has been strong and will hopefully remain that way
throughout the new moon phase.
Target near-shore rock piles and jetties in the early morning and
again around sunset for best action. Casting quarter ounce jigs will
allow you to cover the water necessary to find where the fish are hold-
ing.
Free-lined shrimp will work as well, and if you put the effort into get-


ting some live pilchards, you're sure to be rewarded as the big gator
trout are suckers for the oily rich baits.
Redfish will be a good target species this weekend both on the morn-
ing negative low tides and the afternoon high tides. Look for the fish to
be on the outer edges of the flats in the morning and scattered about
along pothole bottom in the afternoon.
The biggest factor is finding the mullet and staying with them.
Weedless jerk baits in an avocado red flake color, and gold spoons are
go-to lures for this type of redfishing.

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@tbnweekly.com or mail it to Tampa
Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

"Seniors and the "Holiday Blues"
Typically theholiday season is a time of sharing joy
and creating more new memories with family and
friends, whereas, many of those who are older find
that they feel disappointed, stressed and often sad.
The factors behind these feelings that create the "hol-
iday blues" may stem from one ormore of the follow-
ing reasons:
~ Reminder of past losses of loved ones which
takes on a greater significance during the holidays
~ Sadness over "then" so many cherished mem-
ories of the past and unable to find pleasure in the
"now"
~ Unrealistic expectations -such as family togeth-
erness, joyful events full of happiness. When realities
fall short of these expectations, this may cause person
to plummet to new lows of sadness and loneliness.
~ Spending holidays alone- There are seniors who
live alone and may be distanced from family and
friends. Grown childrenoften become busy with their
own obligations, not lralizinghowmuch theirparents
look forward to sharingtime with them,"time" being
the ultimate gift to lift their spirits.
~ Coping with health issues -inability to partici-
pate in activities they once enjoyed.
This holiday season, plan a visit or make a phone
call to your elderly family member or friend. Reaching
out will help ease their loneliness. Time is the most
valuable gift of all and the most difficult for some to
come byin this"hurry up" society Wehave goodin-
tentions to make a visit, write a special note, yet "time
rushes by" Remember, it is never too late to make a
difference in the life of an elderly person who has so
many thoughts and remembrances to share, with the
person who pays a visit or drops a note. Give the gift
of time now to a loved one who may live alone. You
will not onlybring joy to theheart of this dear person,
but enjoy the reward of making a difference simply
by listening and engaging in stories of their families,
their struggles, and theirmost fondmemories. Honor
them, encourage them and love them for their contri-
butions to our world. We are all contributors. We all
need to be heard and cared for.

Dolphin does crazy Christmas maypole behavior


Tis the season for giving and getting, and I wish
for you a gift so precious in its rarity that it keeps
you in wonderment for years.
I got such a gift recently, compliments of our local
dolphins' unconscious tradition of giving me spec-
tacular yuletide observations. This year's gift was a
lengthy demonstration of the rarest bottlenose dol-
phin behavior,
called piling-
peering, which Dolphin
looks like some Watch
maritime may-
pole manipula- Ann Weaver
tion. I
On a perfect
December day at sea, under misty skies like lace
overhead, we came upon a quartet of dolphins. I
nabbed a picture as mother dolphin P dashed away
with her 16-month-old calf Paisley. Nearby, Jagger
(after Mick Jagger) hunted in 10 inches of water,
easily tracked by her dorsal fin peeking out of the
water. She catapulted after fish and pinwheeled
round them dramatically, leaving yawning mud-
plumes like rising smoke over submerged seagrass
meadows.
The fourth dolphin was PC, a young bull bot-
tlenose born in 2005 to the mother dolphin that de-
parted so hastily; PC stands for P's Calf. PC weaned
from P at 16 months, the youngest weaning age to
date, which means he's been on his own for 5 of his
7.5 years.
He returns sporadically, most recently in spring
2012, as told in Dolphin Watch's, who goes home
for spring break? Before that he visited in spring
2009. P and PC's reunion was rare, but not the gift
of which I speak.
The rare gift was PC's piling-peering. Riveted on a
channel marker piling, three different times he cir-
cled it for many minutes, curling by swimming on
his side or putting his face close enough to bump
his chin against it, and then swam a short distance
away before returning. While circling, he periodically
snapped his jaws but didn't appear to hold anything
in his mouth. What was he doing?
Broadly, piling-peering is a form of "object han-
dling," a term for any interaction between an animal
and an item. Our local dolphins interact with two-
dozen objects, but usually briefly. This was among
the longest object handling display we've seen.
Piling-peering is the rarest dolphin behavior. In


nearly a thousand surveys, this is only the third
time we've seen it. Stick did it some years ago, but
she's a known tool user. The first time was at the
start of our study when PC's mom P did the same
thing to a piling not far from the one that so riveted
her son this day.
In this rare behavior, the dolphin appears to be
tracking something very closely that in turn appears
to be moving, because all three dolphins circled the
piling repeatedly. On their sides, they can use both
of their eyes to study the piling closely. Is that what
they're doing? What for?
The piling that riveted PC's attention was studded
with three distinct layers of life, like neighborhoods
with different needs for water.
Two were tough life forms that live on the piling
where they were alternately submerged and exposed
to air. The top layer, some 10 inches tall, was made
up of barnacles that wrapped around the piling like
white-topped chocolate candy we call Snow Caps.
The middle layer, perhaps a foot tall, was made
up of oysters resembling fossilized potato chips an-
chored at treacherously perpendicular angles, their
wicked sharpness belied by their gentle white and
beige hues sprinkled with smudges of dull purple.
At the current tidal level, the sea surface just licked
the bottom-most oysters.
The third layer, gentler aquatic folk that cannot
survive out of the water, lived permanently below
the waterline: Brown-orange sponges, ranging in
size from Brazil nuts to golf balls, peeked out from
sprinkles of short life forms resembling clusters of
maroon lace.
PC often faced the piling directly. The dolphin
lower jaw or mandible sticks out further than the
upper jaw, and dolphins often get scrapes on their
chins like the skinned knees that perpetually
adorned the kids of my day. I've often wondered how
dolphins scrape their chins, and with the help of a
shoving current, piling-peering may be one way.
PC occasionally snapped his jaws. Was he trying
to gnaw the sponges, perhaps to get a unique taste
treat like you mouthing and sucking on a green
olive? Did he nibble on tiny citizens of the littoral
city, miniature octopus or crabs desperately dash-
ing across sponge fields, like you nibbling Chex Mix
at a Christmas party?
Was he eating standard fare at an exotic restau-
rant, or teasing it? A 6-inch fish scurried around the
piling when PC did. The young bull may have been

following the fish round and round the piling; if he'd
wanted to eat it, he could have made short work of
that intention.
I had to laugh when I thought about the handful
of ganglia that fish call brains: The circling fish may
have thought it was swimming along an endless
straight sea wall instead of in small endless circles
with a dolphin on its tail!
Was PC's piling-peering a lesson at sea school? As
a cross-modal being, you can use information from
one sense and apply it to another sense, such as
when you see a new Christmas present and then
later, blindfolded, identify it by touch.
Dolphins are cross-modal too. They can be intro-

duced to an object visually and then identify it later
using echolocation. Is piling-peering some kind of
sea school lesson wherein dolphins visually inspect
the calcified creatures of the littoral city and then
use their echolocation to learn acoustic signatures?
What do you think PC was doing?

-S.-.


Promo is a 1-year-old American pit bull terrier mix who weighs 60
pounds. He was given up for adoption because he has too much energy
for his former owner's grandmother. He appears to be housetrained
and knows a few basic commands. He also plays well with the other
dogs at the shelter. Adopt him at 12450 Ulmerton Road, Largo, call
582-2600 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/animalservices/petfind.htm.


Jinx
Jinx is a 7-year-old pit bull terrier mix who loves to play
fetch. Tennis balls are his favorite toy. He is a bit shy at first
and has never experienced living with small children or
other dogs, so he would prefer a quiet home. He is
housetrained, loves to cuddle with his human and can't wait
to meet his new best friend. Adopt him for only $30, which
includes microchip, neuter surgery, 30-day pet insurance,
vaccinations, and your new friend. Visit him at SPCA Tampa
Bay at 9099 130th Ave. N., Largo. Visit www.spcatampa
bay.org.

Chicken jerky treats under investigation


Chicken jerky treats are still
being investigated after 360 re-
ported canine deaths and 1 feline
death. The majority of the treats
(jerky, tenders, and strips) con-
tain chicken but some have in-
cluded duck, sweet potato, and
yams. To date, the FDA has not
come up with the exact cause of
these deaths. Most cases involve
small dogs eating more than the
indicated amount on the bag. Re-
ported symptoms are primarily
gastrointestinal which include
vomiting and diarrhea, some-
times with blood and/or mucous.
Other signs may relate to dam-
aged kidneys which include in-
creased urine, severe thirst, and
glucose in the urine (Fanconi
syndrome).
I had a case a couple of years
ago in a small Yorkshire terrier. It
involved the Waggin Train brand
chicken jerky treats. The York-
shire terrier had been given more
than the normal amount for a
small dog and developed signs of

Fanconi syndrome and kidney
disease. Luckily, this dog sur-
vived.
The FDA has tested many
product samples for contami-
nants known to have caused
symptoms and illnesses in pets.
Examples of these contaminants
are Salmonella, pesticides, antibi-


otics, heavy metals, furans, my-
cotoxins, rodenticides, and
nephrotoxins such as melamine.
Melamine was the cause of the
big pet food recall several years
ago.
The FDA has been investigat-
ing these treats from China since
2007. The FDA has conducted
plant inspections during March
and April of this year. The plants
inspected were those with the
highest number of pet illnesses.
The FDA is placing inspectors in
these plants to monitor produc-
tion.
The reason many chicken jerky
treats are made in China is due
to the abundance of white meat
available for export since the Chi-
nese mainly consume dark meat.
Even though deaths have been
reported, the products cannot be
recalled until a specific cause is
determined. It is up to you, the
consumer, to educate yourself,
read the labels, and feed as di-
rected. Since these products can't


be recalled, they are still avail-
able. Treats should only be given
on occasion and not in excessive
amounts. The FDA is reminding
pet owners that jerky pet treats
are not necessary for pets to have
a fully balanced diet, so eliminat-
ing them will not harm pets.
Commercially produced pet foods
contain all the nutrients that pets
need.
It is important to investigate
any brand of treat or food you
feed your beloved companion by
checking the FDA website at
www.fda.gov for any recent re-
calls or products that are under
investigation. So before you fill up
your dog or cat's stocking for the
holidays, support the USA and
don't buy treats from China.

medical director at Oakhurst Vet-
erinary Hospital in Seminole. She
has over 15 years of experience.
She has a special interest in feline
medicine.


Festive friends
From left, jodey, Cubbie and Maddie are December's
Pets of the Month, with their festive attire. They are all
" ladies who are about 10 years old and are part of a
-_"blended family," with jodey and Cubbie coming from
their mom, Sloane Hunter, and Maddie coming with
her dad, Rick Hunter. They live in Madeira Beach and
have all been a family for five years, as of Nov. 27.
jodey, a westie terrier, likes to be boss and treated like
a princess. She gets jealous if one of her sisters gets
more attention than she thinks she is getting. Cubbie, a
cairn terrier, thinks she is a hunter and spends the day
searching for bugs and lizards. She likes to always be
petted and will give a little bark when the pets stop.
Maddie, a jack Russell terrier, likes to be the center of
attention and will run to drop a baseball on your lap,
just in case you feel like playing catch. She was born on
Christmas, and she loves ripping through all the
wrapping paper that day. Sadly, her parents have just
learned that she has cancer. Saying goodbye will be
difficult, but Sloane said that she and her husband are
proud pet owners and encourage others to do
something nice for their pets or donate time or money
to help needy animals. The pups have won a $25 gift
certificate to Largo Feed and Garden Supply, either in
Largo or Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to

Holiday happenings


Dreaming of a white Christmas in Florida may be
pointless, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
There are plenty of ways Floridians can enjoy the
winter holidays without worrying about freezing
temperatures, blustery blizzards and mounds of
snow. Here, beneath daytime's sunny skies and
palm trees and night's twilight tapestry illuminated
with thousands of twinkling lights, residents and
visitors can enjoy seasonal plays and concerts, an-
nual parades led by Santa himself and dazzling
light shows happening all around the Tampa Bay
area.
Following is a summary of this year's holiday
happenings.

ing a welcome by Mayor Chris Arbutine, the tree
will be lit heralding the arrival of Santa. There will
be a hayride until 8 p.m. The Bluffs Business Asso-
ciation will donate refreshments. Residents are
asked to bring canned goods, boxed food, baby for-
mula, flour, sugar, peanut butter, rice, pasta, or

mas." A Boston Pops-styled concert, it will present
some of the holiday season's most exciting and
unique musical selections from hometowns across
the country and around the world. The DCB will in-
troduce local soprano and superb jazz stylist, Erica
DiCeglie, in a delightful tune called "Snow Day Cel-
ebration." Zagar wrote special lyrics just for this
concert presentation. There will be some musical
shenanigans too, first with a performance of "Cow-
boy Christmas." The concert will be presented free
to the public with a free-will donation at the con-
cert's conclusion. A pre-concert performance by the

Jill Kelley, the


mystery vixen in


Petraeus scandal
Jill Kelley, the mystery vixen in the David Petraeus scandal, is now
flanked by a high-profile Washington attorney and a professional "crisis
manager."
This can only mean that she wants her own reality show, a book deal
or both.
It was Kelley who
received the anony-
mous e-mail warnings
from Petraeus'biogra-
pher-slash-mistress, Carl Hiaasen
Paula Broadwell, and .C
it was Kelley who
then contacted a
friend in the FBI, -
Agent Frederick
Humphries II.
(Humphries, an
anti-terrorism specialist, once emailed to Kelley a shirtless photo of him-
self. Write your own joke.)
Broadwell thought Kelley was making a move on Petraeus, and told
her to back off. Once the feds identified Broadwell as the source of the
emails, her affair with Petraeus was exposed, he resigned as director of
the CIA and another distinguished public career ended in a sleazy
Florida skid.
News organizations have described Kelley as a 'Tampa socialite," a
term heard about as often as "Boston alligator-wrestler." Recent media
reports have demoted Kelley to "a Tampa hostess," a phrase which calls
to mind one of those upbeat greeters at the Olive Garden.
In fact, Kelley's hostessing talents drew a lofty crowd. She is a thrower
of major parties for high-ranking military types at her big bayfront house
(currently in foreclosure proceedings, what else?).
She and her surgeon husband got chummy with Petraeus while the
four-star general ran the U.S. Central Command, also known as CENT-
COM, which is headquartered at Tampa's MacDill Air Force Base.
MacDill is the strategic operation center for American forces in Iraq
and Afghanistan, and also for the war on terrorism. Kelley was a volun-
teer social director for the base, which apparently entitled her to visit
without an escort. Perhaps she went there to review wine lists with the
brass.
In addition to Petraeus, she was also close to Marine Gen. John G.
Allen, NATO's top officer in Afghanistan. Until recently he was on track to
become the supreme allied commander in Europe.
Today the Pentagon inspector general's office is reviewing 60 to 70
emails that passed between Kelley and Allen, some of which have been
characterized by unnamed sources as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious."
Allen, who like Kelley is married, adamantly says there was no illicit
relationship. That Kelley had any relationship at all with a top wartime
general and also the CIA chief is somewhat mind-bending, for discreet
she was not.
In a chipper email to Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn last year, Kelley
said: "I'll be in DC this weekend with Petraeus, but let's set up a double
date when I return!"
Oh, let's!
Kelley has now hired attorney Abbe Lowell, who successfully defended
John Edwards on campaign corruption charges. Presumably, Lowell did
not have to audition for Kelley by stripping off his shirt.
Lowell's first act on Kelley's behalf was to formally inquire of the Jus-
tice Department how the name of his dismayed client first got leaked to
the media a move that assured her name and face would be all over
CNN once again.
Also joining the Kelley team was Judy Smith, a self-described crisis
manager to whom Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick turned for reputa-
tional guidance.
Hard work lies ahead. A New York businessman named Adam Victor
says Kelley offered to help him land a $4 billion natural gas contract in
South Korea, in exchange for a 2 percent commission.
You might be wondering how a Tampa party maven could credibly
present herself as someone who could facilitate an international
megadeal. Well, it turns out that Kelley was an "honorary consul" for the
government of South Korea.
Like Forrest Gump, she pops up in the darnedest places.
Although it was mainly a ceremonial gig, Kelley showcased the hon-
orary consul title on the license plate attached to her silver Mercedes. An
$80 million commission surely would have eased those car payments,
not to mention that troubled mortgage, but the gas deal went nowhere.
Last week, South Korea brusquely de-consuled Kelley. She has also
lost her solo roaming privileges at MacDill.
So far there's been no evidence that she posed a security risk, or that
she did anything worse than try to make a quick fortune using her man-
ifest skills as a schmoozer. It's Florida, for God's sake, the land of oppor-
tunism.
Nobody forced those generals to hang out at Kelley's house, drinking
her booze and snarfing down her canapes. When she tells her own story
- which she undoubtedly will prepare to be further surprised by who
else came to party.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon might be asking itself if Tampa is really an
ideal place to run our wars from. The FBI might be having similar
doubts.
Sure, Alaska would be safer, but how would you unwind? Who wants
to peel off his shirt for a snapshot when it's 20 below?

Cameras, city council are to blame
Editor:
It looks like the Clearwater City Council and their red light cameras
caused another serious accident on Nov. 10. The intersection at Gulf-to-
Bay Boulevard and Belcher Road has green arrows but they don't have
red arrows for the left turn lanes. That is what is causing most of the acci-
dents at this intersection. Cars are allowed to creep into the intersection
on caution and get hit trying to turn left. Largo has the red arrows for left
turn lanes and they have almost no left turn accidents.
The adding of red light cameras to this already dangerous intersection
means drivers turning left and those trying to make the light at the last
second will speed up. The inevitable result will be more deadly crashes. As
usual, the crash investigation for this "accident" will end up blaming one
of the drivers instead of the real culprits- the Clearwater City Council.
This is murder. Just plain murder. Murder for a "Fistful of Dollars."

Voting mess created by Republican foxes
Editor:
So Secretary of State Ken Detzner and state Sen. Jack Latvala are
going around Florida trying to figure out what caused the voting mess.
Isn't that like sending the fox to find out why the chickens are missing
from the chicken coup?
Aren't they both Republicans and weren't they both serving when the
Republican Legislature decided to stifle voting in Florida and discourage


minorities from voting and thereby help the Republican Party? I don't re-
call any protest from either one of them when these draconian laws were
passed. Once again Florida became the laughing stock of the nation with
our long lines and failure to report vote counts timely. Neither one of these
gentlemen will be successful because they helped create the problem to
start with.
Latvala's statement that Pinellas election chiefs strategy of promoting
absentee voting was unnatural and would result in fraud, shows where
his head is. There is little or no voter fraud in Florida and Jack should
know better. I support election chief Deborah Clark's strategy of making it
easy for citizens of Florida to exercise their right to vote, instead of making
it more difficult to vote, which this pair and their fellow Republicans are
guilty of doing in the last election. If Detzner had been doing his job, in-
stead of the bidding of Gov. Rick Scott for the past 10 months before
the election, there would not have been a mess.

Are the Brits invading our language?


Are you guilty of using British words and
phrases? If so, some of your associates may
one day accuse you of being traitorous or
uppity. "If you can't speak old-fashioned
Amurrican, then whah doan you jes move to
London and live with them fancy-pants?!!"
It's unlikely anyone will actually say that
to you. For one thing, most Americans aren't
snobs, of either the standard or reverse
kind. It's rare that you meet anyone who
cares how you speak, or how anyone
speaks. After all, most of our communica-
tion takes place on Facebook or Twitter.
However, a recent magazine article said
that Britishisms are creeping into our lan-
guage faster than we might think. Examples:
snogging. If a boy and girl engage in exuber-
ant kissing, they are snogging. If they then
go off to bed together, they will shag. If they
do it only once, then the interlude may be
regarded as a one-off.
I'm not as conscious of a British invasion
of our language as I am of British people ap-
pearing on TV as news reporters, commenta-
tors or interviewees. On some days the Brits
seem to have taken sole possession of the
networks. A large proportion of foreign cor-
respondents these days are British; most of
them wade into war zones without blinking.
I have mixed reaction to Brits on the TV
screen. I take delight in the half-hour news
programs of BBC World News, in which
world headlines are presented by well-spo-
ken, level-eyed, quietly sexy women who
avoid the china-doll cuteness typical of so
many of America's female newsreaders.
My least favorite British news celebrity is
Piers Morgan, who jabbers on during a
chunk of CNN news time each evening. His
manner of speech I can only describe as
pinched, as if he were squeezing out each


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver




word through pursed, semi-paralyzed lips.
The article I referred to above (The Week
Magazine for Dec. 7) cites a number of
British crossover terms that I had not before
heard of. One example is "gastropub," a
drinking spot that also serves good food. An-
other is "ginger" applied to anyone with red
hair. The article says that the British are
guilty of anti-ginger prejudice, while Ameri-
cans are not.
Have you recently made an earnest effort
to engage a person in conversation? In the
USA this is simply called "talking" to some-
one. In England, it's "chatting up." As in, "I
spotted this lovely woman alone at the bar,
so I sat down and chatted her up."
To check on the freshness of many food
products, Americans look for the "expiration
date" on the side of the package. In England
this is called the "sell-by date," and it's sup-
posedly becoming more common in our
country. Nobody is quite sure how Briti-
cisms creep into our language, but indica-
tions are that it's more common with the
"educated elite" journalists, advertising
workers and others who traffic in words more
than other elements of life. Another source of
British invader-terms is the many well-re-
ceived TV programs such as "Downton
Abbey," "Upstairs Downstairs" and my fa-
vorite, the long-running "As Time Goes By."


I can remember a fad of 30 years or so
ago in which upward-striving firms sought
out well-educated British women as secre-
taries and receptionists. The theory was
that when a prospective client was greeted
by a nifty Brit lady a much more favorable
reaction would occur than if the welcomer
hailed from Kansas City or Atlanta.
I disagree with that way of thinking. One
accent seems as good as another to me, per-
haps because of my proletarian back-
ground. My working-class family lived in a
series of obscure Pennsylvania towns whose
inhabitants' speech patterns were some-
times just this side of unintelligible. We
quickly developed a tolerance for off-the-
wall twangs, utterances and enunciations.
You really can't judge a person simply by
his/her style of speech. And you shouldn't
try.
One expert cited in the article said the
word "trousers" (for pants) and "fortnight"
(for two weeks) have dropped out of Ameri-
can English use, while being retained by the
Brits. I hope that's not so, at least with re-
gard to trousers, which is valuable because
it is specific. "Pants" is not. A pair of pants
can refer to half a dozen types of garment,
worn by both men and women.
If we owe a debt to any foreign language
for enriching our own lingo, it's Spanish.
Just boot up a few appropriate websites and
you'll find dozens of Hispanic words and
terms. We've been using them for many
years, and not just since the Hispanic immi-
gration waves of the past 40 years or so. Mi
casa, su casa. Vaya con dios. Taco. Bonan-
za. El Nino. Que pasa? Adios, mi amigos!

Beware the harvest, Mr. He-coon


Every gun-toting, beer-swigging, fun-loving
yeehaw from here to Boll Weevil, South Caroli-
na, soon will be descending upon South Florida
in pursuit of the $1,500 grand prize for harvest-
ing the most Burmese pythons.
Harvesting, by the way, means killing.
"The old he-coon walks just before the light of
day," the late former Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles
said years ago.
If I were a he-coon living in the Ev-
erglades, I'd high-tail it the hell out of
there.
We'll discuss the he-coon later; first,
let's deal with big snakes.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission will launch its
Python Challenge Jan. 12 in Fort
Lauderdale.
As you probably know Florida's
Burmese pythons are a menacing
species even worst than the snakes
in Tallahassee and some grow so big
they'll eat just about anything easier to
swallow than an air boat.
A Florida hunting license is needed
to participate in the harvest, so I guess
that rules me out. Shucks, I was look-
ing forward to grabbing my snake bag,
rounding up my friend Canadian
John, the leg man, and heading south
to snag some snakes.
As Canadian John explained to me
a couple of years ago, before a similar Photo cou
snake hunt, African trappers have de-
vised a technique for catching
pythons. It has something to do with a
tribesman sticking his leg, wrapped in towels, in
a deep hole in suspected python territory. When
the snake bites the tribesman's appendage the
leg fellow hunters yank him out of the hole,
snake in tow. Then they hack the snake to bits
with a machete.
John's never around when I need him. Too
bad, because I don't think I could kill a python

without the help of a leg man.
I don't own a gun so I'm not sure that I could
comply with the Conservation Commission's
ethical standards to ensure a Burmese python
is killed in a humane manner, such as by blow-
ing its brains out.
Another humane harvesting method, the
commission says, is to "decapitate the python.
Use a machete or other appropriately sharp tool.


The tool selected should be capable of decapitat-
ing the snake as efficiently as possible."
Guess that rules out lethal injections.
For the record, I think the Python Challenge
is a good idea. As far as I'm concerned, the only
good Burmese pythons are dead.
I just hope the collateral damage doesn't in-
clude other wildlife.
Run, Bambi, run.
As for the he-coons, colum-
nist and retired political reporter
Bill Cotterell was kind enough to
explain to me in an email the
meaning behind Chiles' saying.
"In his book 'How Florida
Happened,' (Chiles' former Lt.
Gov.) Buddy MacKay solved the
he-coon riddle about three years
ago. He explained that the
young raccoons go out at dusk
and forage all night, often getting
shot by hunters or eaten by
other predators. The wise old he-
coon stays in his den until just
before the light of day, when the
hunters have gone home and
~- other enemies are asleep," Cot-
terell said. 'That line came up in
the last Chiles-Bush debate of
1994, when someone asked the
governor about polls showing
*_ Jeb ahead of him with about a
N COMMISSION week left in the race. Chiles had
closed from about 20 points
down to five or six, but seemed
stuck there. He was confident that he would
peak at just the right time -which he did."
Keep your wits about you, he-coons, and
maybe you won't become a victim of the
Phython Challenge, which ends Feb. 16.
You don't want to end up as headwear for
some yeehaw.

Lifesaving screenings
available for women
Mammograms and Pap tests save women's lives, but their costs can
be out of reach for those who are uninsured or can't afford them on
their own.
The Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program
has been serving some of those women by providing a link to screen-
ings and treatment with funding from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention since 1994. Early detection is the key to successfully
diagnosing and treating breast and cervical cancer.
The Pinellas County Health Department administers the county's
Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program that
serves women between the ages of 50 and 64 who are uninsured and
whose household income is at or below 200 percent of the Federal
Poverty Level. For a family of four, 200 percent is $46,100 in gross in-
come.
During the 2011-12 fiscal year, the Pinellas program provided 2,208
breast screenings and diagnostic services. Almost 1,000 women re-
ceived mammograms to detect breast cancer and 478 received Pap
tests to detect cervical cancer.
Testing detected 29 breast cancers and three cases of cervical can-
cer or pre-cancers. The Florida program serves about 5.4 percent of
the eligible population in the state that needs its services.
For information about the Pinellas County Health Department's
breast and cervical screening program, visit
www.pinellashealth.com/BreastCervicalScreening.asp or call 824-
6917.
The Florida Department of Health provides statistics on the state's
program at www.doh.state.fl.us/family/cancer/bcc/index.html.

Florida Hospital North earns awards
TARPON SPRINGS Florida Hospital North Pinellas recently re-
ceived the Get With The Guidelines Heart Failure Silver Quality
Achievement Award from the American Heart Association.
The recognition signifies that Florida Hospital North Pinellas has
reached an aggressive goal of treating heart failure patients with 85
percent compliance for one year to core standard levels of care as out-
lined by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiolo-
gy secondary prevention guidelines for heart failure patients.
Florida Hospital North Pinellas also received the American Heart As-
sociation/American Stroke Association's Get With The Guidelines
Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award. This award recognizes
Florida Hospital North Pinellas' commitment and success in imple-
menting a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring that stroke pa-
tients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards
and recommendations.
To receive the Get With The Guidelines Stroke Silver Plus Quality
Achievement Award, Florida Hospital North Pinellas achieved at least
12 consecutive months of 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get
With The Guidelines Stroke Quality Achievement indicators and
achieved at least 75 percent or higher compliance with six of 10 Get
With The Guidelines Stroke Quality Measures during that same period
of time, which are reporting initiatives to measure quality of care.
'The full implementation of national heart failure guideline recom-
mended care is a critical step in preventing recurrent hospitalizations
and prolonging the lives of heart failure patients," said Lee H.
Schwamm, M.D., in a press release. Schwamm is chair of the Get With
The Guidelines National Steering Committee and director of the Tele-
Stroke and Acute Stroke Services at Massachusetts General Hospital
in Boston, Mass. 'The goal of the American Heart Association's Get
With The Guidelines program is to help hospitals like Florida Hospital
North Pinellas implement appropriate evidence-based care and proto-

Sciullo named Hospice president, CEO
CLEARWATER Rafael "Rafe" Sciullo recently was selected to lead
the Suncoast Hospice and its family of programs as president and
CEO.
Sciullo succeeds the late Mary J. Labyak, who died in February.
For the past 26 years, Sciullo has been a leader in hospice and pal-
liative care predominantly in the Northeast. Since 2001, he has served
as president and CEO of Family Hospice and Palliative Care, Pitts-
burgh, one of the largest organizations of its kind in Pennsylvania.
"It was critical for us to find someone with a passionate commit-
ment to our patients and families someone with vision for the future
and the ability to lead Suncoast in the era of healthcare reform," said
Kelli Hanley Crabb, board chair, in a press release. "We believe we
have found that person in Rafe."
"Rafe has been a champion of end-of-life care for many years. He is
a compassionate, collaborative leader ideally suited to take our organ-
ization to the next level," said Betty Oldanie, who has served as acting
president and CEO of Suncoast since Labyak's death. "I knew Mary
and served on a board with her. I have great respect for what she ac-
complished at Suncoast. Suncoast Hospice is a national leader in
hospice and palliative care because of Mary's drive and commitment
to her patients," Sciullo said. 'There is no more important job humans
can do for one another than caring for patients at the end of life."
Sciullo received his undergraduate degree from Duns Scotus Col-
lege, Southfield, Mich., followed by a master's degree from the Univer-
sity of San Diego and a master's degree in social work from the
University of Connecticut. He also earned a master's in healthcare
management from the Hartford Graduate Center in Connecticut.

Center hosts patient appreciation day
CLEARWATER The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers hosted a
patient appreciation day on Nov. 9 at Eagle Lake Park in Largo.
This is to be the first of many annual events that the centers have
scheduled including a golf tournament in the spring. They had an ex-
cellent turnout with almost 200 patients showing up to enjoy a day at
the park. The patients were first greeted at a check-in table by the
helpful staff from the Arthritis Research Institute of America who were
giving out goody baskets and raffle tickets to each patient as they ar-
rived.
The staff of the Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers set up several
games and activities including a beanbag toss game and horseshoes
as well as an abundance of food and drinks for the patients to enjoy.
Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Hayter and Dr. Amundaray both spoke to
the crowd and the center's founder, Dr. Barrett, made a speech as
well.
"We were very pleased to see the outstanding turnout of patients
and how much they all really enjoyed our first annual patient appreci-
ation day," said Mariellen Murray in a press release. Murray is chief
operating officer at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers.

Stylishly clever

Thriller 'Dragon' incorporates themes of honor, identity and impulse


Can a trained killer learn to control his violent instinct? Can a bru-
tal criminal be rehabilitated?
These weighty themes provide the underpinning to director Peter
Chan's epic "Dragon" (also known as "Wu xia" overseas), a masterful-
ly rendered martial arts thriller that is so stylish and clever that it is
worth searching for either On Demand, on web-based movie services
or in local theaters. "Dragon" completed a one-week run at Tampa's
Britton Theater recently, and with luck it may show up at a Pinel-
las venue in the coming weeks.
Set in a small Chinese village in
1917, the film opens with an idyllic
domestic scene. Liu Jinxi, a village Reel Time
craftsman, appears to lead a quiet, I.1 I e Clark Zumpe
peaceful life with his wife and two ______
children. The serenity is short-lived,
however: Mere minutes into the
film, the village's general store is visited by two notorious gangsters.
Liu, who happens to be in the store, seems reluctant at first but
ultimately confronts the criminals in an electrifying martial arts fight
sequence, breathtakingly choreographed and concurrently graceful
and brutal. Liu manages to save the shopkeeper's life, killing both as-
sailants in the process.
While both the village residents and the local magistrate consider
Liu a hero particularly when it is revealed that one of the bandits
happens to be among the government's 10 most wanted fugitives -
detective Xu Baijiu is convinced that a commoner like Liu couldn't
have possibly prevailed against two sadistic, trained fighters.
Xu begins a methodical investigation that includes a fascinating
reconstruction of the brawl. The director integrates elements of police
procedural films to show how the meticulous Xu visualizes the
events.
Throughout his inquiry, Xu reveals as much about his own obses-
sion with following the letter of the law as he does about Liu's secret
past. The detective's fanatical quest for justice eventually draws the
attention of China's criminal underworld namely, a group of ruth-
less warriors of Tangut descent known as the 72 Demons.
While the martial arts mayhem is splendidly executed, Chan does
not drown out the narrative with gratuitous scenes of violence. Em-
phasis is placed on character study and plot, with pacing that is un-
hurried and focused. The lush cinematography captures the epic
tone of the film.
Donnie Yen stars as Liu Jinxi. Because the character conceals an


undisclosed history, in a sense, Yen is tasked with performing two
separate roles. As husband and father, he is humble and genial; as a
skilled martial artist, he is disciplined and intimidating. Yen under-
scores the juxtaposition between two personalities to reflect Liu's
inner turmoil.
Takeshi Kaneshiro portrays Xu Baijiu, the compulsive detective
versed in physiology and acupuncture. Kaneshiro's excellent perform-
ance paints a picture of a man driven to obsession and haunted by his
past.

treacherous lands swarming with
Goblins, Ores and deadly Wargs,
as well as a mysterious and sinis-
ter figure known only as the
Necromancer.
Although their goal lies to the
East and the wastelands of the
Lonely Mountain, first they must
escape the Goblin tunnels, where
Bilbo meets the creature that will


change his life forever ... Gollum.
Here, alone with Gollum, on
the shores of an underground
lake, the unassuming Bilbo Bag-
gins not only discovers depths of
ingenuity and courage that sur-
prise even him, he also gains pos-
session of Gollum's "precious"
ring that holds unexpected and
useful qualities ... a simple, gold
ring that is tied to the fate of all
Middle-earth in ways Bilbo can-
not begin to know.
The following will open in limit-
ed release. It may be several
weeks before these films appear
in local movie theaters.
'Any Day Now'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Alan Cumming, Garret


Dillahunt, Isaac Leyva, Frances
Fisher and Chris Mulkey
Director: Travis Fine
Rated: R
Inspired by a true story from
the late 1970s and touching on
legal and social issues that are as
relevant today as they were 35
years ago, "Any Day Now" is a
powerful tale of love, acceptance
and family.
When a teenager with Down
syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is aban-
doned by his mother, a gay cou-
ple (Alan Cumming and Garret
Dillahunt) takes him in and be-
comes the loving family he's never
had. But when authorities discov-
er their unconventional living ar-
rangement, the men are forced to
fight a biased legal system to save
the life of the child they have
come to love as their own.

'Save the Date'
Genre: Comedy and romance
Cast: Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie,
Martin Starr, Geoffrey Arend and
Mark Webber
Director: Michael Mohan
Rated: R
After an ill-timed and very pub-
lic marriage proposal, fiercely in-
dependent Sarah (Caplan) breaks
up with her overeager boyfriend
Kevin (Arend).
Sarah turns to her sister Beth
(Brie) for support, but Beth is too
busy obsessing over the details of
her own wedding to Kevin's band
mate, Andrew (Starr). When
Sarah suddenly finds herself
caught up in an intense rebound
romance with the adorable
Jonathan (Webber), she is forced
to examine her own fears of com-
mitment and vulnerability.

St. Petersburg
VSA Florida's Modem Skills for Success Art
Exhibition, through Dec. 13, Monday through Fri-
day, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in Armacost Library,
at Eckerd College, 4200 54th Ave. S., St. Peters-
burg. VSA Florida, the state organization on arts
and disability, presents this exhibition of 48 works
created by students in transition from high schools
statewide. These students participated in the Mod-
ern Skills for Success residency program which
helped them acquire skills to create a computer
generated image which can be applied to future em-
ployment. Visitors will have the opportunity to try
their skills using Splash, the same interactive art
making tool used by the students. Call 864-7979.
The Art of Golf, through Feb. 17, at the Muse-
um of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE, ST. Peters-
burg. The museum will play host to the first major
exhibition in America devoted to the popular game
of golf, so rich in history and tradition. Organized by
the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the National
Galleries of Scotland, this show will feature approxi-
mately 90 works by Rembrandt, Childe Hassam,
George Bellows, Norman Rockwell and Andy
Warhol, among others. Some of these works have
never before been on public display. They all point
to golfs ability to inspire extraordinary works of art.
The centerpiece of the exhibit is Charles Lees' 'The
Golfers" (1847), the world's greatest painting in this


genre. Museum hours are Monday through
Wednesday and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5
p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday,
noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $17 for adults,
$15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students 7
and older, including college students with current
identification. Children 6 and younger and museum
members are admitted free. Docents conduct tours
of special exhibitions and the collection Monday
through Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Sun-
day at 2 p.m. On the second Wednesday of the
month, the general tour begins at 11:15 a.m. Family
tours are conducted on Saturday at 11 a.m. For in-
formation, call 896-2667 or visit www.fine-arts.org.
Cirque du Soleil's big top production "Kooza,"
through Dec. 16, under the white big top at Tropi-
cana Field, One Tropicana Drive, St. Petersburg.
"Kooza" tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy
loner in search of his place in the world. The show
is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It com-
bines two circus traditions acrobatic performance
and the art of clowning. The show highlights the
physical demands of human performance in all its
splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful
melange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor. The
Innocent's journey brings him into contact with a
panoply of comic characters such as the King, the
Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious
Tourist and his Bad Dog. Between strength and
fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony,
"Kooza" explores themes of fear, identity, recognition
and power. The show is set in an electrifying and ex-
otic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, au-
dacity and total involvement. For more information
about Cirque du Soleil, visit cirquedusoleil.com.
The De La Torre Brothers: Home for the Holi-
days, Dec. 22 through Feb. 2, at Mindy Solomon
Gallery, 124 Second Ave. NE, St. Petersburg. Gallery
hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to
5 p.m. Call 502-0852, email info@mindy
solomon.com or visit www.mindysolomon.com.
Artists and brothers Einar and Jamez de la Torre
will bring their inventive, irreverent, inspired glass
and mixed media works rife with tongue-in-cheek
religious iconography and pop-cultural references -
to Mindy Solomon Gallery. The blown and cast glass


sculptural works featured in this program are largely
taken from the de la Torres' 2012 exhibition at the
Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Va. In addition to the
museum works, the brothers' recent explorations in
digital art and mixed media round out Home for the
Holidays. The works on display showcase the multi-
plicity of their religious and political story, always
with an eye toward humor. One example of note is
the sculpture "Animaluchador" (2008). In Spanish,
"anima" translates to souls burning, and "luchador"
means wrestler. The figure appears to be standing in
a religious pose of prayer, but is wearing the cos-
tume of a wrestler. His body is engulfed in flames,
while he stands astride a pop-cultural doll. The rela-
tionship between religious icon and heroic figure
(masquerading as an object of significance) personi-
fies the de la Torres' irreverence for cultural iconog-
raphy as nothing more than cartoon. This
objectification of symbolic masculine and spiritual
strength enables viewers to tackle their own senses
of religious alienation with candor and humor.

REEL TIME, from page 1B


Playing Liu Jinxi's wife Ayu is Tang Wei. Chan has
shrewdly led the audience into viewing Liu through
Ayu's eyes. Wei's skilled portrayal exposes the char-
acter's fears of abandonment without diminishing
her strength of will.
Jimmy Wang plays the Master, leader of the 72
Demons. Wang is menacing on screen, a harsh
archetype of a man lacking any trace of decency.

Chan has stealthily concealed a morality play in
this martial arts film, highlighting the dramatic
struggles amongst its well-developed characters.
"Dragon" meditatively questions the extent to which
one may reshape identity- and to what degree basic
instinct controls one's actions. Beyond the stunning
action sequences, "Dragon" succeeds due to its in-
trospective tone, its engaging script and its com-
pelling characters brilliantly brought to life by
excellent actors.
