SHS band still needs $30,000

About 12 band members may not make trip to Rose Parade


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE In about a
week, most members of the
Seminole High School marching
band will be leaving for Califor-
nia for a Jan. 1 appearance in
the Tournament of Roses Pa-
rade.
Unfortunately, because
fundraising efforts have come
up short, about 12 band mem-
bers may not be able to make
the trip because they haven't
been able to raise the necessary
funds.
Between personal fundraising
and efforts by the Seminole
High Band Boosters, about 132
students and parents are set to
go. But for the others, the sad-
ness of not being able to make
the trip will tear apart the nor-
mal thrill of the Christmas sea-
son.
"We're $30,000-plus short,"
said band director Chip Wood.
"Our 13 months of fundraising
wasn't as thick and deep as the
Macy's (Parade) trip and other
trips we've made. Times are
tough and philanthropy is
down."
Wood said the cost to send a
student to the Pasadena, Calif.,


parade is $1,970.
"But the cost keeps escalat-
ing," said Wood. "Every day that
we get closer to leaving the cost
goes up because of airfare in-
creases."
In past years, the band has
used charter flights but this
time those set to go are on three
separate commercial flights that
will depart Tampa on Thursday,
Dec. 27. The band's instru-
ments and luggage will leave on
a truck on Sunday, Dec. 23.
The band will perform in the
Disneyland parade on Dec. 28
and Bandfest Dec. 30 at
Pasadena City College before
marching in the main event on
New Year's Day.
Anyone able to make a con-
tribution can do so by contact-
ing Wood at slote4@aol.com or
woodda@pcsb.org, or by calling
the band office at 549-6207.
Another contact is Roger Fox
of the Seminole High Band
Boosters at 481-5419.
Checks also can be mailed to
the school at 8401 131st St.,
Seminole, FL 33772, attn: Chip
Wood.
There is also a Paypal link

where donations can be made.

City OKs Pow Wow Festival midway contract


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE The city's 2013 Pow Wow Festival was
set in motion last week when the City Council approved
an engagement contract for midway rides with Tip Top
Shows of Riverview.
The festival, which is held annually at the Seminole
Recreation Center, will take place March 8-10.
As in past years, the contract calls for Tip Top to pro-
vide carnival midway rides and games. The schedule is
Friday, March 8, 5 to 11 p.m.; Saturday, March 9, 10
a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday, March 10, 11 a.m. to 7


p.m.
Best of all, it doesn't cost the city a dime. Revenue
generated from the rides is shared with Tip Top.
The agreement calls for Tip Top to pay the city 30
percent of receipts up to $20,000 and 32 percent for
anything above $20,000. It also calls for Tip Top to pay
the city $100 for each game and concession wagon it
operates.
According to additional terms, Tip Top agrees to op-
erate a minimum of 20 rides, a minimum of 10 games
and one popcorn concession wagon. Of the 20 rides, 12
must be school-age rides and eight for preschoolers.


Tip Top also must provide the city with a certificate
showing its is covered for a minimum of $1 million in li-
ability insurance.
In other action, councilors:
Approved a 2012-13 vehicle use agreement with
the Pinellas County School Board that provides the city
with buses for its summer camp and holiday camp pro-
grams.
Passed on first reading ordinances providing annex-
ation to the city for homes at 10863 111th St. N.,

2A County


Revenue-enhancement deal


pleases county commissioners


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners
unanimously approved a consultant contract Dec.
11 for revenue enhancement opportunities for its
Utilities department.
Commissioners approved staffs request, 5-1,
Aug. 7, to negotiate a contract with Water Company
of America of Oviedo for the Department of Environ-
ment and Infrastructure. Commissioner Norm
Roche voted no, saying the county should have its
own experts available to do the job.
Roche and Commissioner Ken Welch were absent
Dec. 11.
County administrator Bob LaSala explained back
in August that the company would be using a pro-
prietary software application to look for lost revenue
or opportunities to generate more.
New revenue generated by the company's findings
would be split for three years after the savings were
identified. The split would be 52 percent to the DEI
Utilities Enterprise Fund and 48 percent to WCA.
Commissioners asked staff to try to get a better
deal as they negotiated the final contract.
The final contract calls for WCA to receive 46 per-
cent of any savings for 36 months. Utilities will re-
ceive 54 percent for 36 months and 100 percent
thereafter.


WCA will not receive money from back billing.
Water meters previously identified by staff as need-
ing replacement are excluded from the contract.
New rates imposed after the contract is signed are
not part of the contract nor are fees.
Discoveries also must present an "economic feasi-
bility," which is defined as having a return on in-
vestment of less than 36 months.
Staff says the average annual revenue WCA typi-
cally "discovers" for a utility the size of Pinellas
County's is $1.1 million. The county's share would
be $594,000 for 36 months and 100 percent there-
after.
Commissioners also approved advertising a Feb.
12 public hearing to talk about collecting non-ad
valorem assessments for surface water management
program services in unincorporated areas of the
county.
LaSala said commissioners would not be expected
to approve a special assessment. He said the action
only "preserves the opportunity." He said the tax
collector and property appraiser have to be notified
by Jan. 1 of the possibility.
'This keeps the door unlocked," LaSala said. "But
it is not opening it or passing through. It just allows
the board the ability to make choices after it

the master plan."
LaSala is referring to the Sur-
face Water Management master
plan being prepared by staff.
LaSala said a work session would
be scheduled when the plan was
complete to go over the details.
Commissioner Karen Seel said
the only reason she would con-
sider supporting the measure
would be if it paid for infrastruc-
ture improvements and not just
operations and maintenance.
"We have a problem in Pinellas
County that needs to be solved,"
she said.
Commission Chair John Mor-
roni said he wanted to make sure
residents wouldn't pay duplicate
fees. Seel pointed out that the
commission was only looking at
unincorporated areas, but added
that a coordinate countywide
plan would be best.
Staff says a dedicated source of
income is needed to fund critical
elements of the surface water
management program.

Volunteers are needed to deliv-
er hot, nutritious meals to the

Hurricane summit proposed


By BOB McCLURE

INDIAN SHORES The operations manager for
Pinellas County Emergency Management is pro-
posing a county-sponsored emergency manage-
ment summit that will focus on hurricane
preparedness on the beaches.
David MacNamee told members of the Barrier Is-
lands Governmental Council Dec. 5 that he wants
to organize the forum for government leaders and
the general public. He said it would focus on areas
most towns and cities haven't thought about.
No date has been set but a tentative date of late
March or sometime in April is being tossed around.
"We sent two people from my office and 14 peo-
ple from the region for logistic support in New
York (following Hurricane Sandy) for 10 days and
they came back with some very interesting stories
and recommendations," MacNamee said. "I'd like
to do a summit with some people from our office
and some from other areas to walk you through
what happens if you can't get back into this
building. How are you going to serve your citi-
zens?"
MacNamee reminded BIG-C members that
Sandy was only a category 1 storm but it caused
some of the worst flood damage ever seen.
'The thought that it'll never happen to me here
didn't come true for the people of Staten Island the
Rockaways and some of the other areas," he said.
"We won't answer all of your questions at the sum-
mit, but hopefully we'll give you a lot of information
that will help with a quicker recovery."
MacNamee said he hopes to bring in government
officials from Galveston, Texas who can attest to
what their city went through, both good and bad,
in 2008 when Hurricane Ike struck.
"Unfortunately today, the general population
seems to think two things," said MacNamee. "Num-


ber one, it's not going to happen to me. And num-
ber two, if it does happen to me, the government is
going to be here and take care of me. This was very
evident in New York."
Further details on the proposed summit will be
forthcoming.
In other action:
Indian Shores councilor Bill Smith said the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
would conduct its first public workshop Dec. 18 on
Rule 62B-36, which governs how DEP administers
beach management. The rule has current and fu-
ture impact on beach renourishment projects es-
pecially in Belleair Beach where minimum
numbers of public parking spaces, required by the
state, are necessary for public funding of beach
projects. Smith said DEP recently announced a re-
organization that eliminates the Bureau of Beaches
and Coastal Systems. 'They have taken and reor-
ganized all of the staff into different categories,"
Smith sad. 'The (Florida Shore and Beach Preser-
vation Association) is very concerned about it and
has sent a letter of disappointment. They would
like further discussion with DEP about it and will
be pushing hard to make sure (DEP) doesn't lose
their focus on beaches."
Madeira Beach Mayor Travis Palladeno said de-
velopers of a proposed hotel and a new restaurant
on the beach in his city would probably be break-
ing ground on those two projects within the next
30 days.
Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos noted that
the annual Outback Bowl Beach Day would be
held on Clearwater Beach on Sunday, Dec. 30. The
event features bands and cheerleaders from both
teams playing in the annual bowl game. This year's
game matches the University of Michigan against
the University of South Carolina Tuesday, Jan. 1,
at Raymond James Stadium.


Madeira finance chief's status short-lived


By WAYNE AYERS

MADEIRA BEACH The city's top finance person,
though considered a charter officer, will apparently
continue to report to the city manager.
A recent opinion by City Attorney Thomas Trask
that Finance Director Vincent Tenaglia is a charter
officer of the city and as such should report to the
Board of Commissioners has been reversed, by
Trask himself.
Having the finance director report to the commis-
sion would have reshaped the structure of city gov-
ernment, putting responsibility for the city's $9
million budget in the hands of the commissioners,
who are elected officials. The city manager has had
that responsibility for years, before Trask an-
nounced at the Nov. 27 commission meeting that he
had researched the city charter and found the "city
treasurer" is a charter officer.
The city's charter officials, who include Trask,
City Manager Shane Crawford and the city clerk, all
report to the commission. Tenaglia reports to the
city manager, as have his predecessors for years.
Trask said at the commission meeting he had
based his opinion that the finance director should
report directly to the commission on a section of the
city charter. It reads, 'There shall be appointed a
City Clerk, City Attorney and City Treasurer who
shall serve at the pleasure of the Board of Commis-
sioners and said officers shall be considered 'charter
officers.'"


Trask agreed to further research the charter after
commission members, Crawford and some residents
expressed surprise, and in Crawford's case some
dismay, at the decision.
In a letter sent to the commission members on
Nov. 30, three days following the commission meet-
ing, Trask announced he was reversing his opinion.
He said, "My opinion, after reading the entire
charter, is that the Finance Director/City Treasurer
is under the direction and supervision of the City
Manager..." and that the city manager can termi-
nate the finance director "without the consent of the
Board of Commissioners."
In the three-page letter, Trask cites several char-
ter sections to back his stand. He gives specific sec-
tions, which pertain to the appointment of the city
clerk (6.2), city attorney (6.3), and city manager (5.1)
by the Board of Commissioners, and the city treas-
urer (6.4) by the city manager.
Trask later said that the charter, when read over-
all, is still somewhat ambiguous on the subject. The
commission can make the final decision as to where
the finance director reports, he said.
Crawford said he would work with whatever the
commission decides. But he added, 'The charter is
the charter. If you read the charter in its entirety, it
is clear the finance director reports to the city man-
ager." Crawford said that was the understanding
when he was hired, and because of the huge impact
the budget has on city management, "it's the only
way to run the city effectively."

NRB adds a tax exemption


By JEANNIE CARLSON

NORTH REDINGTON BEACH In the spirit of
Christmas, an ordinance designed to provide prop-
erty tax relief to low-income seniors in North Red-
ington Beach passed unanimously on its first
reading at the Dec. 13 town hall meeting.
Seniors 65 and older who own their home in
North Redington Beach valued at less than
$250,000 and whose annual household income is
approximately $23,000 or less will be eligible for an
additional $50,000 homestead exemption from the
town. Ownership is defined as having the legal or
equitable title to their real estate and maintaining
it as their permanent residence.
The prior ordinance that this one will be replac-
ing, instituted the annual income limitation as
$20,000 when it began on Jan. 1, 2001. As then,
the income limitation will continue to be adjusted
annually each Jan. 1 by the percentage change in



New Rotary member


the average cost-of-living index based upon the
Consumer Price Index figures for the prior 12-
month period relative to the United States as a
whole, issued by the United States Department of
Labor. Currently, that figure is approximately
$23,000.
North Redington Beach seniors eligible for the
homestead exemption may apply for and receive
this new additional exemption if they qualify. NRB
seniors claiming the exemption are required to
submit a sworn statement on a Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue form of household income to the
Pinellas County Property Appraiser no later than
March 1.
If title to the residence is held jointly with right of
survivorship, the person residing (and otherwise
qualifying) may receive the entire amount of the
additional homestead exemption. This new exemp-
tion applies only to property taxes levied by the
Town of North Redington Beach.

Investigation leads
to 11 drug arrests
TREASURE ISLAND A four-month undercover
narcotics investigation between the Treasure Island
Police Department and the Pinellas County Sheriffs

suspects.
Arrest teams from both agencies descended upon
numerous Treasure Island residences at mid-morn-
ing in a detail dubbed "Operation Treasure Chest."
Those arrested were charged with various drug re-
lated crimes which included sale, possession and
trafficking in narcotics.
The investigation targeted those involved with ille-

gunfire in the area.
Upon arrival, deputies began to search for the
source of the reported gunfire. Deputies then
spotted a vehicle coming off a golf cart access just
south of Palm Boulevard and directly across from
the Country Club.
They stopped the vehicle, driven by Fitzgerald,
who had a high-powered rifle, a .380 caliber, and
a .45-caliber handgun in the vehicle. Deputies
say Fitzgerald also displayed signs of impairment.
Fitzgerald told deputies he was searching for
his lost dog and had his weapons with him for
protection in case he encountered any coyotes.
Deputies encountered him in his vehicle, but
deputies say Fitzgerald had fired the rounds ear-
lier, while on the course on his golf cart.
Deputies say Fitzgerald fired multiple rounds.
One of those rounds hit a city of Dunedin water
tower located just south of Curlew Road and east
of Alt. U.S. 19. The tower holds about a million
gallons of water. Deputies say water has been
draining out from the hole caused by the round.
The city of Dunedin is working to get the dam-


ages to the water tower repaired.
Fitzgerald was booked into the Pinellas County
Jail. Bond was set at $2,400.

Unlicensed contractors
caught in sting
DUNEDIN Ten individuals were arrested for
operating as unlicensed contractors in Pinellas
County during a sting conducted out of a
Dunedin home Dec. 10-13.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office report that
the 10 were issued misdemeanor notices to ap-
pear for violation of the unlicensed contractor
statute. Several other charges were issued, in-
cluding 10 cease and desist citations with no fine
and one $2,500 fine issued by the Florida Depart-
ment of Business and Professional Regulation.
The county's Construction Licensing Board is-
sued nine $500 fines.
Deputies also made two misdemeanor arrests
for driving with a suspended or revoked driver's
license and one vehicle was impounded.
The sting was conducted by the Sheriffs Office
along with the Department of Business and Pro-
fessional Regulation, the Department of Financial


Services Insurance Fraud Unit and the Pinellas
County Licensing Board.
According to the sheriffs report, the multi-
agency operation targeted unlicensed contractors
who advertised various types of home repair serv-
ices to include, roofing, AC repair, plumbing and
electrical work. The unlicensed contractors were
identified through advertisements listed on
Craig's List, Angie's List and the Seminole Bea-
con. According to investigators, all the identified
ads were published without a license number in
the ad.
Investigators made 38 phone calls to the indi-
viduals listed in the advertisements and sched-
uled appointments to the home in Dunedin. Ten
individuals from eight ads arrived and offered
their repair services. Quotes ranged anywhere
from $50 up to about $1,500 depending on the
service. Deputies said in one instance one indi-
vidual offering AC repair services quoted $1,567
and wanted $783 immediately.
Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who announced the re-
sults of the operation, urged Pinellas County resi-
dents to protect themselves.
"It is very important that people use licensed


contractors for work in their homes. Take the
time to verify those licenses in order to avoid be-
coming a victim to those who would prey upon
those needing home repair services," Gualtieri
said.
Tampa Bay Newspapers, publishers of the
Seminole Beacon, maintain regular contact with
the Pinellas County Contractor's Licensing Board
to help ensure the legality of all service advertise-
ments placed in their publications, TBN Publish-
er Dan Autrey said.
"Like all media, we unfortunately have no con-
trol over these individuals if they should decide to
misrepresent their services to potential cus-
tomers," Autrey said. "TBN has ended, and will
continue to do so, advertising relationships based
on verified complaints from readers responding to
advertisements placed in their papers."
Florida law sets specific rules and guidelines
for obtaining professional licensure, and the peo-
ple who have met these requirements are held to
professional standards, according to the Depart-
ment of Business and Professional Regulation.
Consumers can verify professional licenses online

Animal Services: Don't forget pet safety during the holidays


The holiday season is a time for fun with family
and friends, but Pinellas County Animal Services re-
minds members of the community not to forget your
pets at this time of year.
Securely anchor your Christmas tree so it does-
n't tip and fall, causing possible injury to your pet.
This also will prevent the tree water, which may
contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset,
from spilling. Stagnant tree water is a breeding
ground for bacteria and your pet could end up with
nausea or diarrhea if consumed.
Kitties love tinsel, a sparkly, light catching "toy"
that's easy to bat around and carry in their mouths.
But a nibble can lead to a swallow, which can lead
to an obstructed digestive tract, severe vomiting, de-
hydration and possible surgery. It's best to brighten
your holidays with something other than tinsel.
Do not feed your pets chocolate or anything
sweetened with xylitol. Make sure to keep your pets
away from the table and unattended food and be
sure to secure the lids on garbage cans.
Chose holiday gifts for your pets that are safe.


Dogs can tear apart toys and swallow the pieces
that can become lodged in the esophagus, stom-
ach or intestines. Stick with chew toys that are in-
destructible. Cats are attracted to toys with long
stringy objects like yarn, ribbon or small moving
parts, but they may get stuck in the intestines,
often requiring surgery. Surprise your kitty with a
new ball that's too big to swallow, a stuffed catnip
toy or an interactive cat dancer.
Forget the holly and mistletoe. Holly, when in-
gested, can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting
and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal
upset and cardiovascular problems. Many vari-
eties of lilies can cause kidney failure if ingested.
Hold the leftovers. Fatty, spicy and other
human foods, as well as bones, should not be fed
to your furry friends.
Don't leave lighted candles unattended. Pets
may burn themselves or cause a fire if they knock
candles over. Be sure to use appropriate candle-
holders, placed on a stable surface. If you leave
the room, put the candle out.


Keep wires, batteries and glass or plastic oma-
ments out of paws' reach. A wire can deliver a po-
tentially lethal electrical shock and a punctured
battery can cause bums to the mouth and esoph-
agus, while shards of breakable ornaments can
damage your pet's mouth.
If your animal-loving guests would like to give
your pets a little extra attention and exercise while
you're busy tending to the party, ask them to feel
free to start a nice play or petting session.
Make sure all of your medications are locked
behind secure doors and be sure to tell your
guests to keep their meds zipped up and packed
away.
If your celebration includes adult holiday bev-
erages, be sure to place your unattended alcoholic
drinks where pets cannot get them. If ingested,
your pet could become weak, ill and may even go
into a coma, possibly resulting in death from res-
piratory failure.
Give your pet their own quite space to retreat
to that is complete with fresh water and a place to


snuggle. Shy pups and cats might want to hide
out under a piece of furniture, in their carrier or in
a separate room away from the excitement.
As you count down to the new year please
keep in mind that strings of thrown confetti can
get lodged in a cat's intestine, if ingested, requiring
surgery. Noisy poppers and fireworks can terrify
pets and cause possible damage to sensitive ears.
Information was provided by the American Soci-
ety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Pinellas County Animal Services is located at
12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo. Normal hours of
operation are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
with the adoption center closing at 4:30 p.m. The
adoption center is also open the first and third
Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to noon. To re-
claim a lost pet, visit the shelter between 9 a.m.
and 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
The facility is closed Sunday and holidays.

found pet hotline number is 582-2604.


Law enforcement plans rigid enforcement on highways during holidays


Law enforcement agencies across the state
are launching special "Drive Sober or Get
Pulled Over" crackdowns to stop impaired driv-
ers and to save lives on Florida's roadways.
Officers will be aggressively looking for im-
paired drivers and will arrest anyone caught
driving impaired. Enforcement efforts will in-
clude sobriety checkpoints and heavy enforce-
ment.
The special enforcement crackdown will run
through Jan. 1.
"Lots of folks will be out during this busy
holiday season, enjoying themselves and the
holiday festivities, and we want everyone to be
safe on our roadways," said Lora


Hollingsworth, Florida Department of Trans-
portation chief safety officer. "That's why our
law enforcement partners will be stepping up
efforts to catch and arrest impaired drivers. If
you are caught drinking and driving impaired,
you will be arrested. No warnings. No excuses."
During 2011 there were 920 alcohol relat-
ed/suspected fatalities in Florida resulting
from motor vehicle traffic crashes. The holiday
season is a particularly dangerous time. Na-
tionally, in December, approximately 30 per-
cent of all fatalities in motor vehicle traffic
crashes involve alcohol-impaired drivers.
"We want everyone to enjoy their holidays,
but we also want our roadways to be safe," said


Holiday gas prices continue to fall


By SUZETTE PORTER

Millions of travelers will be grateful for falling gas
prices as they take to the roadways this holiday sea-
son.
As of Sunday, Dec. 16, a gallon of regular unlead-
ed was almost the same as it was last year, $3.25,
according to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report.
Floridians were paying slightly more than the na-
tional average, $3.27, which is 1.5 cents less than
the same date in 2011. People living in the
metropolitan area of Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwa-
ter were playing an average of $3.18 2 cents less
than last year and 7 cents less than they paid at the
pump last week.
The good news is that experts predict the down-
ward trend will continue with prices below $3 be-
coming commonplace in the near future.
Prices in Pinellas County had already fallen below


$3, according to prices posted Sunday night on
www.tampagasprices.com. Stations throughout the
county were offering gas at $2.99. Prices ranged to a
high of $3.18.
'The year-end holiday season is the busiest travel
time of the year," said Jessica Brady, AAA
spokesperson for The Auto Club Group. "Whether
families plan a traditional holiday at grandma's
house or a cruise to the Caribbean, one thing is cer-
tain, being with family and friends remain the most
important factor during the holiday season."
Despite an increase in holiday travel throughout
the year and an expected increase for Christmas
and New Year's, AAA reports that three in five peo-
ple prefer to stay home for Christmas.
However, a large number, three in four, said they
were interested in taking an unorthodox holiday va-
cation, such as a cruise to the tropics or visiting an-
other country.

"Seniors and the "Holiday Blues"
Typically theholiday season is a time of sharingjoy
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-
idayblues" may stem from oneormoreof 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-
emess, 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.
~ Spendingholidays alone There are seniorswho
live alone and may be distanced from family and
friends. Grown childrenoftenbecome busywith their
own obligations, not iealizinghowmuch theirparents
lookforward to sharing time witthe, "time" being
the ultimate gift to lift their spirits.
SCoping with health issues inability to partici-
pate in activities they once enoyed.
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 good in-
tentions to make a visit, write a special note, yet "time
rushes by" Remembe; 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
willnotonlybringjoy to theheartof this dearperson,
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

Florida Highway Patrol Director Col. David
Brierton. "We will be out in force to help save
lives, and we are not going to tolerate impaired
driving. So remember, 'Drive Sober or Get
Pulled Over.' We will be watching."
It is illegal in Florida to drive with a Blood Al-
cohol Content of .08 or higher. Violators face
jail time, loss of driver license, and steep finan-
cial consequences such as higher insurance
rates, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at
work, and the potential loss ofjob.
There are three simple steps people can take
to stay safe and out of trouble:


Plan ahead. If you will be drinking, do not
plan on driving. Designate a sober driver or
find another safe way home. Even one drink in-
creases the risk of a crash while driving a
motor vehicle.
If you are impaired, find another way home.
Use a taxi, call a sober friend or family mem-
ber, or use public transportation.
Be responsible. If someone you know is
drinking, do not let them get behind the wheel.
If you see an impaired driver on the road, con-
tact law enforcement. Your actions may save
someone's life, and inaction could cost a life.

Holidays restore


faith in goodwill


toward everyone

I love the holidays. I adore the lights, the glitter and that feeling of
excitement humming through the air. And, most especially, I thrive
on the feeling of goodwill as the community comes together to help
our own.
Most of us stay unaware of what it is like to be poor. We cannot
imagine what it is
like to work all day,
every day and still
not have enough
money to pay rent .4
and buy food. We P /,-rr,- :'. r.!i
cannot know how it
feels to have to tell
your child there is
no supper tonight.
We cannot fathom
what it is like to be
in pain and have no money to see a doctor, or even worse to have a
sick child, spouse or parent and not be able to afford medicine. We
cannot imagine the fear, the hopelessness.
It's beyond our ability to relate to the elderly who have no family
and no one to care. We do not know how it feels to be miserably
lonely, hungry and scared.
At a recent Pinellas County Commissioners meeting, an official
talked about visiting a family living in deplorable conditions. There
were eight or nine people living in a one-bedroom home. The only
light was from a single bulb hanging from the ceiling. The cook
stove was the only source of heat.
I remember going to places like that as a child in a small town in
Arkansas. My mother is what some would call a professional do-
gooder. My brother and I often thought we might starve as we wait-
ed for her to come home to feed us. We complained that she cared
more for "those people" than her own family. Yes, we were spoiled.
During the holidays, she took us with her to visit those less fortu-
nate. We took boxes of food and gifts of toothbrushes, toothpaste,
soap, deodorant, toilet paper and the like. We took socks, under-
wear and coats. My brother and I did not think the gifts were wor-
thy Christmas presents. My mom told us we would think different if
we did not have those things at home.
I remember hating to go into some houses because they smelled.
When I complained, I was told to be kind. They are doing their best,
my mother said. The next year, our boxes included cleaning prod-
ucts and bleach.
My church group went to the nursing homes at Christmas as
well. We sang carols and visited with the residents. In the begin-
ning, I did not like it. Those old folks were weird and they smelled
funny, too. My mom ignored my complaints. She said, "Suzette, this
makes them happy for just a little while. It will not hurt you to
help."
Some of them would cry. They were so grateful that someone
cared. They would say thank you over and over. Many begged us to
come again. I did not understand that; for some our visit would be
the only thing that made the holiday different from any other day.
The needs of others are not something most of us consider as we
go about our day-to-day business. But the need is there. People just
like you and me are struggling. The only thing that separates us is a
paycheck, decent health and having someone to care.
More families are homeless in Pinellas than ever before. Children
are living in their cars with their parentss. There will be no Christ-
mas tree or presents or holiday meal unless it comes from you or
me.
The holidays truly are magical. Amidst the glitter and lights and
that feeling of excitement is a huge effort to reach out to those in
need. Businesses, organizations, churches, charities and individu-
als are collecting food, clothing and toys with the goal to make the
holidays a little bit brighter for us all. Law enforcement agencies,
fire departments and other government agencies go beyond their
normal jobs of public servants to do as much as they can.
Imagine if we could take the spirit of Christmas and apply it every
day to helping those in need without judgment of their circum-
stance.
Could we stop homelessness? Could we end hunger? Could we
prevent unnecessary pain and suffering? Could we create hope?
I love the magic of Christmas. Here's to peace on earth and good-
will to us all.

LETTERS
The elderly wait in silence for their children
Editor:
Where have the children gone? She sits in the hallway with the
suitcase by her side. As I pass, she takes hold of my arm and pulls
me and motions me to come closer. She says she is waiting for her
daughter to take her home.
As she talked, tears rolled down her face. Yet I could see a sparkle
in her eyes and a smile on her face. She reminded me of my mom,
who once had that same look on her face, but my mom was in a hos-
pital, not a nursing home.
I was happy for this frail little lady, until I heard the head nurse.
This lady has sat in that hallway with that empty suitcase for seven
years, ever since her daughter left her, never to return.
Where have all the children gone? Don't they remember the love
and happiness once given? Are their loved ones so busy that they
can't even share just a visit, a kiss and "I love you" or just a thank
you? Their hearts must truly be frozen.
Each day she'll sit and wait, with that same sparkle in those eyes
and that same smile and return to her room and wait for tomorrow.
I hurt when I think of that lady and the tomorrows to follow. I don't
think she really is waiting for her daughter any longer. I think now
she sits and waits for her death. I'm sure when it comes it will be an
angel, and he'll pick her up in his arms, and she will still have that
sparkle in her eyes and that smile on her face.

Appreciates meeting coverage
Editor:
Millie and I have just finished reading (with great pleasure), the cov-
erage of our recent City Commission meeting and the vote taken on
this project. We both concur that this article did much to answer
questions and to clarify the issue regarding the 500 feet owned by St.
Petersburg. Several phone calls to our home have all been positive,
and we want to extend our thanks for excellent reporting!
P.S.: We feel fortunate to have Bob (McClure) and your newspaper
in our community.

Thank you, Lighthouse
Editor:
My husband and I had a lovely vacation in the Indian Rocks Beach
area last week. We arrived on Sunday, Dec. 2, and drove directly to
the Lighthouse Donuts because we love their key lime donuts. After
enjoying donuts and coffee, we heard that the IRB Parade was about
to begin. We walked around and enjoyed the floats and entertain-
ment. We returned to the Lighthouse only to find that I had left my
purse on the front deck. I had no idea I had left it there and was quite
shocked. A young employee met us and said he had been keeping an
eye on my purse for me until I returned. Everything was intact and I
was so thankful. It is nice to know that there are honest people in the
world. We will definitely be back to Indian Rocks Beach and the Light-
house. Thank you again to the Lighthouse.

At Christmas, what of Yoka?


Each year at Christmas time it saddens
me to be the lowest specimen of religious life
- a lapsed Presbyterian but I still manage
to hold my head up and enjoy the goings on.
Most Christmas practices are based on tra-
ditions, and that's reassuring. Old memories
are often the best the giving of gifts, the
singing of carols, the bright lights, the send-
ing of greeting cards to people you haven't
seen or even thought about for the past
year.
It takes me back to my childhood and my
early religious training. This consisted of our
parents dropping my siblings and me off at
the nearest Protestant Sunday School each
week, and then picking us up an hour later.
To their credit, our parents seldom asked
us, "Well, what did you learn today?" The
truthful answer would have been, "Very lit-
tle," thanks to the hodge-podge of Sunday
school teachers our little minds were ex-
posed to. Most of the teachers possessed
only an approximate idea of who Jesus was,
but they taught us that he had been mur-
dered by a gang of Jews and Romans in
order to save us all, 2000 years later, from
unspecified sins we didn't even know we had
committed. From that point it became even
more confusing, and still is.
I'm glad I wasn't bright enough to raise
my hand and ask the teacher, "Could you
please explain the doctrine of the Immacu-
late Conception?" I'd probably have been ex-
pelled. This would have forced me to dream
up some really imaginative excuses to give
my parents. Or it would have allowed my
mother to introduce me to neighbors by say-
ing, "Have you met my brilliant son? He was
recently kicked out of Sunday School."
"And what of Yoka?" Have you ever heard
a less gripping opening line in one of the


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver




segments of a Christmas pageant? Nor have
I, but it was mine and mine alone in Decem-
ber 1945 at the First Presbyterian Church of
Ashland, Pa. The Sunday school's teen-agers
had been hornswoggled into presenting a
play describing how Christmas was celebrat-
ed in various nations. I can't remember
where Yoka lived. Somewhere in Africa, I be-
lieve.
When I told my brother Dave about Yoka
and the knock-'em-dead first words of my
monologue, he laughed for an hour. So did I.
We wondered which amateur playwright had
dreamed up the script. Dave nicknamed me
Yoka, and to this day we can dissolve into
paroxysms of jollity just by inquiring "And
what of Yoka?" On the night of the pageant's
presentation I don't recall my getting any
curtain calls. Still, it was a Christmas anec-
dote to put in my memory box.
You're probably aware that one of our
Christmas traditions is fading fast and
being replaced by a new holiday custom.
Disappearing is the Battle of the Malls,
complete with fighting for a parking space,
endless trudging from store to store, com-
peting with other shoppers for a clerks' at-
tention, and then lugging home gift
packages. The growing replacement for all of
this is the computer. It lets us sit happily at
home, coffee or beer at our side, and punch


up dozens of commercial websites whose
owners will gladly ship to us (for a fee) any
of 6 million gifts shown on our computer
screen.
Computerized shopping brings with it yet
another major improvement over the weari-
ness of in-store shopping, namely, no
Christmas carols assaulting our ears. I'm
not talking about the religion-based songs,
such as Come All Ye Faithful, Joy to the
World and Hark the Herald Angels Sing, pre-
sented by outstanding choral groups such
as the Robert Shaw Chorale or the Mormon
Tabernacle Choir. Most malls don't choose
those carols, to start with.
What they prefer and continue to play is
secular holiday garbage having little or noth-
ing to do with Christ or his teachings. If I
were king I'd levy crippling taxes on any
store or radio station that played warmed-
over, moss-eaten songs about Rudolph, sil-
ver bells, chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
baby it's cold outside, bells jingling, singing
chipmunks, a brat who saw mommy kissing
Santa Claus and that most god-awful con-
coction, the Twelve Days of Christmas. The
list is endless, and keeps growing as singers
and music moguls think of new ways to
make a buck out of our often-uncritical fas-
cination with Christmas and its trappings.
But oddly enough, by 1 a.m. each Dec. 26
Christmas enthusiasm abruptly stops. Its
replacements on the excitement scale: New
Year's Eve and the Super Bowl playoffs. Ain't
life grand?
And so it goes. Along with my predictable
kvetching, I send sincere holiday wishes to
all of my 37 Faithful Readers.

U.S. must prepare for violence


The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary
School on Friday reawakened us all to the
terrible fact that we are not as safe and se-
cure as we used to be in our homes, in our
workplaces, in our shopping malls and in
our schools.
Friday, we were again reminded that the
U.S., in the course of becoming too free a
nation over the last half century, has
evolved into the amoral society envisioned
in the 20th century films of Stanley Kubrick
and Quentin Tarantino. Many of those films
anticipated today's graphic violence and
foretold of our acceptance of such disgrace-
ful, surreal chaos.
It's been 12 years since 9/11, and except
for increased security at airports, we Ameri-
cans have continued to live our day-to-day
lives within a false framework of harmless
refuge, deadened to the realities to which we
are all vulnerable.
It's a bizarre culture that chooses to over-
look, sanction, and even glorify bloodshed
and mayhem. And it's made worse by the
24-7 instantaneous news cycle that pounds
our senses with constant news of violence to
the point that we can't listen or care any-
more.
Despite this particular massacre, which
hit home to every parent, we will continue to
discourage common sense limits to the
propagation of violent behavior. We do that
in the name of protecting important consti-
tutional rights, including that to bear arms,
to speak freely and to make our own deci-
sions, even if we're mentally disturbed.
Actually, we have gone off the deep end,
and continue to pay the price, including the
massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary
School, in pushing these rights to nonsensi-
cal limits. So while we learned the lessons of
9/11 well enough to be vigilant against hi-

jackings by terrorists, nevertheless, over
and over again, we permit mentally ill people
- domestic terrorists to get their hands on
legal semi-automatic weapons. And some-
times they enter college campuses, movie
theaters, malls and elementary school class-
rooms to shoot away.
Dangerous mentally ill people will contin-
ue to live among us and roam our streets
unfettered, and legally purchased semi-au-
tomatic weapons will continue to fall into
the wrong hands. And we as Americans will
continue to be numb and accepting of media
presentation, even promotion of violent be-
havior.
Yet, despite this concurrence, President
Obama spoke, and cried, on behalf of every
American parent on Friday when he spoke
the real truth. We are tired of the violence;
our country has endured too many shoot-
ings; and we must do something to address
this behavior.
In his most moving and evocative speech
ever, Obama said, "We're going to have to
come together and take meaningful action
to prevent more tragedies like this, regard-
less of the politics." Just as our govern-
ment took immediate action to secure air
travel after 9/11, school districts and the
federal government must now dedicate
substantial resources toward making our
schools less prone to attacks like the one


that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary
School.
But it's not about arming teachers or
making schools into forts. It's all about cre-
ating a culture of preparedness and respon-
sibility. School districts, and business
entities too, must take steps to teach and
train staff better to prepare and prevent vio-
lence in their schools, workplaces and pub-
lic settings.
And it's not just about implementing
physical security like metal detectors and
surveillance equipment. It's about getting
educators and students, even kindergart-
ners, to learn and practice to protect them-
selves against threats to their well-being and
how to respond in moments of crises.
While it is still important to debate gun
control of automatic weapons and discuss
how to limit access to guns to criminals and
the criminally insane, more importantly,
Americans need to dedicate our resources
toward teaching and preparing our citizens
to deal with the ever-present threat of vio-
lence, just as the Israelis do. It's not about
being fearful. It's about being ready to react
the next time a gunman enters your vio-
lence-prone 21st-century American life.

ground," said Teresa Leibforth, occupational therapy clinical coordina-
tor at All Children's Hospital. "It was thoughtfully crafted to encourage
children to experience nature with several senses. They can touch the
leaves of various textures, smell different flowers and herbs, see but-
terflies move around the brightly colored flowers, and hear the sooth-
ing sounds of water."
'This garden is very special to my family," said Tori Thrower, a mem-
ber of the Joto's Pizza family and Rachel's mom. "It's a place my kids
can go as they get older and take their own children to remember their
sister Rachel. It was so special to have my parents, my sister Jodi and
her family present for the dedication. It was a day I will remember for-
ever."
Joto's Pizza and Rachel M. Thrower Memorial has been a longtime
supporter of All Children's Hospital through their annual Dough for
the Kids Golf Classic. Since 2004, along with the support of friends,
family, and business colleagues, they have donated more than
$273,000 to the annual All Children's Hospital Telethon."

Physicians voice concern over concussions to athletes


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER A blow to the head can be seri-
ous, especially for young people involved in sports.
Several local physicians concerned about the
health of Pinellas County's youth who participate in
sports talked to Pinellas County Commissioners
Dec. 11 about the need to do more to protect
against concussions.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury
caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head that can
change the way the brain normally works, according
to Dr. Carlos Rodriguez, director, Bayfront Sports
Medicine Fellowship; director, All Children's Hospi-
tal John Hopkins Medicine Sport Medicine Fellow-
ship; and assistant director, Bayfront Family
Medicine Residency. Concussions also can occur
from a blow to the body that causes the head to
move rapidly back and forth.
"Even a ding, getting your bell rung or what
seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be
serious and should be treated," he said.
Symptoms of a concussion include confusion,
amnesia, ringing in the ears, nausea and vomiting
and convulsions. Loss of consciousness is another
symptom, but only occurs in about 10 percent of
cases.
Delayed symptoms, including irritability,
headaches, depression, sleep disorders, poor con-


centration and trouble with memory, are even more
important, Rodriguez said. As are the cumulative ef-
fects, which he said could make a person more
prone to suffer a concussion again.
Emergency departments across the United States
treat an estimated 173,285 sports- and recreation-
related traumatic brain injuries every year in indi-
viduals from birth to age 19. In the last decade,
those injuries have increased by 60 percent.
In youth sports, the highest incidents of traumat-
ic brain injuries come from football followed by girls'
soccer. More than 70 percent of traumatic brain in-
juries are among persons age 10 to 19, according to
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
So far, in 2012, 10 schools located in Northern
Pinellas have reported close to 48 concussions, Ro-
driguez said, and approximately 104 of 1,000
sports-related injuries are concussions. Pinellas
trends with the nation with the most injuries com-
ing from football, followed by girls' flag football and
girls' soccer.
He said students who suffer a concussion require
a longer time to recover. He said teachers should be
aware of potential problems with memory and so-
cialization. He said students who had suffered a
concussion could require more time to take tests or
complete schoolwork. Studies show that 20 percent
of youth had fatigue, headaches, forgetfulness and
difficulty paying attention for up to a year.


A group of local physicians are recommending
that every student who plays sports be given a base-
line test for brain function before the beginning of
the school year so doctors would have something to
compare to if the student athlete suffers a concus-
sion. That comparison would allow physicians to
better judge when a student is ready to return to
play.
Currently, local physicians and athletic trainers
practice a "when in doubt, keep them out" policy to
ensure students don't go back to their sport before
they are healed.
Cost for the baseline test is about $1.50 a stu-
dent. With 10,000 students in Pinellas playing
sports at the high school level, the cost would be ap-
proximately $50,000 the first year, Rodriguez said.
However, the cost would go down in subsequent
years. The cost for the second year was estimated at
about $7,500. The baseline test would be given
every two years.
He said certified athletic trainers, who have four-
year degrees, are a necessary component to keeping
youth athletes healthy.
'They're the physicians' eyes and ears when we
can't go (to a game)," he said.
He said physicians attend almost every Friday
night game in Pinellas, but don't attend practice.
'We need a trainer there," he said.
A state law that went into effect in July requires


that student athletes diagnosed with a concussion
be cleared by a physician before they can go back to
their sport.
'They (physician) have to say it is safe to play,"
Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez and other physicians involved in youth
sports medicine are working on a plan for consistent
education and management of youth sports in
Pinellas County.
Rodriguez said they asked to speak to the County
Commission to educate them about the problem
and to ask for help with funding a countywide pro-
gram for baseline testing.
The physicians also advocate that a certified ath-
letic trainer be present at all youth sports events.
They recommend "early and appropriate manage-
ment via physicians knowledgeable about youth
sports concussions," including Bayfront Sports
Medicine, All Children's Sports Medicine, Morton
Plant Mease Sports Medicine, St. Anthony's Sports
Medicine and others.
Commission Chair John Morroni asked if recent
improvements in helmets were helping with the
problem. Rodriguez said no. He said while they do
protect against head injuries, they don't stop the jolt
to the brain.
'The perception that helmets are safer give a false
sense of security," Rodriguez said. "Helmets protect
the head, but not the brain."

Organization offers tips
to help teens avoid alcohol
Holidays are a time for reflection and celebration. While this is
also true for teens, in some cases, holidays are also a time for great
temptation.
From block parties to small family gatherings, celebrations of all
sizes can lead to underage drinking, while alcohol is more plentiful

and accessible and parents are distracted by the festivities.
Underage drinking is a widespread problem among today's youth.
By age 18, more than 70 percent of teens have tried alcohol, accord-
ing to the National Institutes of Health, and this statistic is especial-
ly alarming for parents of teenagers with their driver licenses.
"As a teenager, you do hear about other teens partying more dur-
ing Christmas break because it is followed by New Year's Eve," said
Kierra Keys, a 15-year-old from St. Petersburg who will be celebrat-
ing with her family at an alcohol-free party. "I have just learned
that it's not a good thing."
To help protect teens and the community this holiday season,
Jackie Griffin, executive director of LiveFree! Coalition, an alliance
in Pinellas County that promotes awareness about the harmful ef-
fects of substance abuse among youth, young adults and adults,
offers the following tips:
Lose the booze. Concerned about your teen attending a party
where you know alcohol will be readily available? Considering host-
ing a kid-friendly, alcohol-free party for your family and friends. It's
the best way to eliminate temptation and ensure that everyone
(even adults) get home safely.
Do not take a vacation from vigilance. The kids are on vacation
from school and things are likely very relaxed at home. But now is
not the time to relax the rules. Store the alcohol in a safe place,
keep an eye out for signs of drinking and remind your children of
the consequences.
Express your expectations. Talk to your kids about your expec-

stations for them at holiday parties. Address alcohol head-on and
reinforce the idea that while adults might be drinking, alcohol is
not a party favor for everyone.
Set an example. Remember that kids often learn by example.
Do not drink excessively at holiday parties and ensure that you
have a designated driver. If you are hosting, then make sure that
your guests also have arranged for a sober driver and there are
plenty of non-alcoholic refreshments available.
"My older cousin sat down with me to talk about drinking and
where you can end up if you drink," added Keys who also tries to
be a good role model for her younger sister and brothers. "It's im-
portant to have family members who care, but you also need to
have a strong mind to not be pressured into it. You are the one
who has to make the decision to not drink."
'The holiday season is a treasured time with family and friends.
We need to do everything possible in keeping our youth and com-
munity safe and surrounded by positive adults setting the exam-
ple," added Griffin. 'Taking the time to establish rules and open
the lines of communication can really keep them safe this during
the holidays and beyond."

Treasure Island services
to go offline Dec. 20
TREASURE ISLAND Several City of Treasure Is-
land services will be offline due to scheduled main-
tenance on the network Thursday, Dec. 20, 8 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m.
Among the affected services are:
Permit and other Building Department process-
ing.
All city email services.
All electronic record retrievals.
The City of Treasure Island website will remain
online.
IT Director Mark Santos said the work done on
the city's network is not a repair, but rather a recon-
figuration.
"Essentially, we're enhancing our disaster recov-
ery and continuity of operations by installing new
server racks," he said. "What that means is we're


unplugging everything in our communications and
data storage center, installing the new racks, then
reconnecting everything."
Santos described the new server racks as water-
tight and designed with maximum mobility in mind.
Should a severe storm or other disaster force city
operations off the island, he said, "we could discon-
nect, wheel the racks out the door, and resume es-
sential city operations with greater efficiency."

'The Guilt Trip'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Barbra Streisand, Seth Rogen, Kathy Najimy, Colin Hanks and
Adam Scott
Director: Anne Fletcher
Rated: PG-13
Andy Brewster is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and
who better to accompany him than his mother Joyce.
After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit at Mom's,
Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles
of ever-changing landscape, he is constantly aggravated by her antics,
but over time he comes to realize that their lives have more in common
than he originally thought. His mother's advice might end up being ex-
actly what he needs.

'Jack Reacher'

Rated: PG-13
From The New York Times bestselling author Lee Child comes one of
the most compelling heroes to step from novel to screen ex-military
investigator Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise).
When a gunman takes five lives in what seems like an open and
shut murder case, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On in-
terrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: "Get Jack Reacher!" So
begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher
against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence, a secret to keep
and a target on Reacher's back.

'This Is 40'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Iris Apa-
tow, Maude Apatow, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Smigel, Charlene Yi

OPENING, from page 1B


After years of marriage, Pete lives in a house of all
females: wife Debbie and their two daughters, 8-
year-old Charlotte (Iris Apatow) and 13-year-old
Sadie (Maude Apatow). As he struggles to keep his
record label afloat, he and Debbie must figure out
how to forgive, forget and enjoy the rest of their lives
... before they kill each other.
In his fourth directorial outing, Apatow's new
comedy captures what it takes for one family to
flourish in the middle of a lifetime together.
What emerges is a deeply honest portrait of the
challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood
in the modern age. Through the filmmaker's un-
blinking lens, we follow one couple's three-week
navigation of sex and romance, career triumphs and
financial hardships, aging parents and maturing
children.
The all-star cast portraying the family and
friends, colleagues and neighbors represents an en-
semble of actors from many of Apatow's previous
projects, as well as new comedy players who have
been welcomed into the fold.

'Monsters, Inc. 3D'
Genre: Animation and family
Cast: John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Mary Gibbs,

Rated: G
"Monsters, Inc.," one of Disney.Pixar's most
beloved and visually imaginative feature films ever,
returns to the big screen to delight a whole new gen-


eration of audiences and fans alike, this time in
stunning 3D.
The now-classic Academy Award-winning animat-
ed comedy adventure "Monsters, Inc." is set in Mon-
stropolis, a thriving company town where monsters
of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced
by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend
Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top
scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-
processing factory.
The main power source in the monster world is
the collected screams of human children and at
Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsi-
ble for gathering those precious natural resources.
Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strict-
ly forbidden from entering Monstropolis.
But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary
Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his
world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in
utter chaos. So pals Mike and Sulley plot to rectify
the mistake and return Boo to her home. But when
the trio encounters an unexpected series of compli-
cations, they become embroiled in a cover-up cata-
pulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest
dreams.

'Cirque du Soleil:
Worlds Away 3D'
Genre: Adventure and family
Cast: Erica Linz and Igor Zaripov
Director: Andrew Adamson
Rated: PG
From the big top to the big screen, visionary film-
maker James Cameron and director Andrew Adam-
son invite audiences on an all new 3D adventure:
Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away.
A young couple who is separated, must journey


through the astonishing and dreamlike worlds of
Cirque du Soleil to find each other, as audiences ex-
perience the immersive 3D technology that will
allow them to leap, soar, swim, and dance with the
performers.

The following will open in limited release. It may be
several weeks before these films appear in local
movie theaters.

'The Hobbitt'

Despite Jackson's uninhibited fervor, the first in a trilogy thrives as a gripping fantasy adventure


Having already achieved universal acclaim for helming the three-
film cinematic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings,"
director Peter Jackson now kicks off the prequel trilogy with the first
installment of his adaptation of'The Hobbit."
The first film in the series, 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," is
vibrant, impeccably cast, exhilarating and fun ... but it never quite
achieves the artistic virtuosity of Jackson's previous forays into
Tolkien Middle-earth.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected ____
Journey" primarily follows the jour-
ney of its title character, Bilbo Bag- C Reel Time
gins. Baggins is enticed by thee Clark Zumpe
Wizard Gandalf the Grey to partici- mp
pate in an epic quest to reclaim the
lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from
an intimidating dragon named Smaug.
Though it goes against his passive disposition, Bilbo ultimately
agrees, joining a company of 13 dwarves led by a legendary warrior,
Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey takes them far from Biblo's beloved
Shire, through treacherous lands patrolled by Ores and deadly Wargs
and home to Goblins and Trolls. Meanwhile, a growing menace casts
a shadow over Middle-earth. The Wizard Radagast the Brown discov-
ers an evil power, the Necromancer, has taken up residence in Dol
Guldur in Mirkwood.
As they make their way east toward the Lonely Mountain, the mem-
bers of the company face increasingly daunting challenges ... and
Bilbo meets a creature who will change his life and shape the destiny
of Middle-earth.
While the source material provides sufficient substance, Jackson
veers from the written word to expand the narrative. Sometimes his
flights of fancy flourish; sometimes, it just seems like he's being
overindulgent.
It has been nine years since 'The Return of the King" the last film
in 'The Lord of the Rings" trilogy was released. It is evident that
Jackson missed playing in the sandbox of Tolkien's literary creation.
His uninhibited zeal is particularly apparent in an unnecessarily long
cinematic prologue establishing connections to his previous films.
Instead of starting in Tolkien's familiar "hole in the ground" the
one that isn't "a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms
and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to
sit down on or to eat," but instead "a hobbit-hole" -Jackson launches
his adaptation 60 years after the events depicted in 'The Hobbit." It's
almost as if Jackson had to find an excuse to let Elijah Wood get into
costume one more time.
Jackson shoves a lot of exposition into the first hour of the movie.
Audiences are forced to wait for the first taste of action, wade through
the lethargic pace of the first 60 minutes and excuse the director's ex-
cesses as he flaunts his creative license. All this might be excusable if
Jackson also used this time to develop the characters fully there are
a lot of dwarves to keep track of, after all: Thorin, Bali, Bifur, Bofur,
Bombur, Dori, Dwalin, Fili, Gloin, Kili, Nori, Oin and Ori.


Real character development, though, doesn't commence until the
party gets under way and starts facing the challenges of the quest.
Once things get moving, 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" de-
livers an enthralling phantasmagoria of repellent creatures, noble cru-
saders and reluctant heroes facing overwhelming odds. Jackson's
Middle-earth is as vibrant as ever, overflowing with emerald-green
woodlands, soaring mountain ranges, towering dark castles and un-
earthly vistas.
Top-notch casting helps reinforce the quality of the film.
Jackson tapped Martin Freeman to play the central role of Bilbo
Baggins. Freeman imbues Bilbo with a neurotic demeanor appropriate
for someone with a disinclination toward adventure. The actor is care-
ful not to make Bilbo's eventual acquiescence seem like some hasty
epiphany. The character's worldview evolves over the course of the en-
tire adventure.
Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, the character he played
in 'The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. McKellen mixes authoritative charis-
ma and humble goodwill to make Gandalf both potent and munificent,
depending on the scene context.
Richard Armitage portrays Thorin Oakenshield. Armitage provides
his with a brash swagger and the perfect degree of self-importance. His
powerful performance makes the audience question his motivation.


Martin Freeman stars as the
Hobbit Bilbo Baggins in the
fantasy adventure '"The
Hobbit: An Unexpected
journey," a production of
New Line Cinema and
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
Pictures, released by Warner
Bros. Pictures and MGM.











Photo by JAMES FISHER
Radagast the Brown is played by Sylvester McCoy. McCoy empha-
sizes the character's eccentricities wonderfully, adding a comic element
to the Wizard's deportment.
Reprising their roles from 'The Lord of the Rings" in 'The Hobbit"
Trilogy are Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Ian Holm as Old Bilbo,
Christopher Lee as Saruman, Hugo Weaving as Elrond, Elijah Wood as
Frodo and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
An undeniable asset to the previous films, Serkis again gives a
hauntingly memorable performance as Gollum. The digitally animated
character seems even more real and even more disturbing this time
around.
'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" doesn't quite transcend its
genre like Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but it is still an ex-
ceedingly entertaining film.
Bolstered by the runaway success of the previous films, Jackson
gorged himself on Middle-earth imagery and mythology and asks audi-
ences to join him at the buffet. The result is a somewhat overinflated
introduction to Tolkien's tale of a reluctant Hobbit confronting the
world outside his comfort zone. Though at times the film comes off as
a bit overstated, Jackson's cinematic audaciousness still can't over-
shadow the film's visual resplendence, its compelling characters and
its imaginative narrative.

St. Petersburg
SThe 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.
*The De LaTorre Brothers: Home for the Holi-
days, Dec. 22 through Feb. 2, at Mindy Solomon

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 large-
ly taken from the de la Torres' 2012 exhibition at
the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Va. In addition to
the museum works, the brothers' recent explo-
rations in digital art and mixed media round out
Home for the Holidays. The works on display show-
case the multiplicity of their religious and political
story, always with an eye toward humor. One exam-
ple 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 costume of a wrestler. His body is en-
gulfed in flames, while he stands astride a pop-cul-
tural doll. The relationship between religious icon
and heroic figure (masquerading as an object of sig-
nificance) personifies the de la Torres' irreverence for


cultural iconography as nothing more than cartoon.
This objectification of symbolic masculine and spiri-
tual strength enables viewers to tackle their own
senses of religious alienation with candor and
humor.
