SPC forum to focus



on student testing

Village Square series continues Jan. 23


SEMINOLE With the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test at the center of an expected po-
litical storm this year, St. Petersburg College will
open the debate with a forum designed to help
educators, students and the general public un-
derstand Florida's K-12 academic future.
Titled "Farewell, FCAT Hello, Common Core:
Florida's New Testing Strategy," the forum will be
Wednesday, Jan. 23, 6-8 p.m., at the Seminole
campus Conference Center, 9200 113th St. N. It
is the third program in SPC's 2012-13 Village
Square Series under its Institute for Strategic Pol-
icy Solutions. Media co-sponsors are WUSF Pub-
lic Media, WEDU, and the Tampa Bay Times.
For 14 years, Florida's children have faced an
academic challenge that caused stress for many
and forced some to repeat a grade or be denied a
high school diploma. FCAT also impacted the per-
formance evaluations of their teachers and the
career plans of their principals.
The assessment test was created in the early
1990s out of concern for low achievement rates
and a demand for accountability. Beginning in
1998, it evolved from a simple measure of student
success to a blunt pass-fail instrument for stu-
dents and a standard by which teachers are eval-
uated and schools labeled as failures.
Many believe the FCAT has become a testing
monster that dumbs down the learning process
and turns teachers into robots. That animosity
toward FCAT boiled over last May, when state ed-
ucators were forced to lower the pass-fail stan-
dard because 73 percent of fourth-graders would
have failed the reading test. That embarrassing
gaffe has sparked a debate on the entire issue of
student testing and teacher accountability. It has


drawn the attention of Gov. Rick Scott, who has
made education a top priority in the third year of
his administration.
Ironically, the FCAT furor comes to a head as
Florida is in the process of instituting an entirely
new system of testing one that will largely sup-
plant FCAT in two years. The state has joined a
coalition of 45 states that is developing a shared
set of assessments in math and English known
as the Common Core Standards. As the Common
Core Standards are fully implemented in 2014-
15, FCAT will be phased out except for science
testing.
A distinguished panel representing four stake-
holder groups will delve into the impact of FCAT
and the new Common Core Standards, as well as
debate the broad issue of academic accountabili-
ty. The panel will include:
Michael A. Grego, superintendent, Pinellas
County Schools
Mindy Haas, president-elect, Florida PTA
Jo Anne McCall, vice president, Florida Edu-
cation Association
Pam Stewart, chancellor of K-12, Florida De-
partment of Education
Doug Tuthill, president of Step Up for Stu-
dents, a nonprofit provider of private school
scholarships for low-income students.
Reservations for the dinner event are required
by Friday, Jan. 18. They can be made online at
www.spcollege.edu/solutions, click on the Village
Square link, or by mail: Institute for Strategic Pol-
icy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL

bers and educators, $40 for guests.

Pedestrian safety


upgrades planned __ __


for Gulf Boulevard


Editor's note: This is the final
part of a series of stories titled
"Watch Your Step" on pedestrian
safety issues in Pinellas County.
By BOB McCLURE

Beach residents and visitors
alike will see significant safety
upgrades for pedestrians along
Gulf Boulevard in the next two
years.
Recognizing the danger
pedestrians face in numerous
areas along the beach corridor,
the Florida Department of
Transportation plans to expand
the number of pedestrian cross-
walks using new technology it
hopes will warn motorists better
when pedestrians are attempt-
ing to cross the roadway.
Plans call for additional cross-
walks, elevated "bull" islands in
the center of Gulf Boulevard, re-
engineered turn lanes and even-
tually, the installation of
rectangular rapid flashing bea-
cons to better warn motorists
that pedestrians are attempting
to cross the roadway.
RRFBs are pedestrian-actuat-
ed amber horizontal LED lights
that are used in conjunction
with warning signs at mid-block
crosswalks. They use an irregu-
lar flash pattern similar to emer-

Part Two

agency flashers on police and
sheriff's cars. Making them
more attractive is the fact they
can be installed on either two-
lane or multi-lane streets.
David Skrelunas, district safe-
ty programs manager for FDOT,
said the cost for RRFD is be-
tween $5,000 and $7,000 per
location. For that reason, he
said FDOT would install the
technology along Gulf Boulevard
as funds become available.
'We'll do it on a case by case
basis," Skrelunas said. "You
have a situation along Gulf
Boulevard of different roadway
segments. In some locations it's
two lanes and then down in St.
Pete Beach you have five lanes.
So we're trying to put in pedes-
trian islands in those locations
to protect the pedestrians so
they don't get mowed over."
FDOT is partnering with the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration to finance the
project.
"We've tried to set aside $1
million," said Skrelunas. "Hope-

Avenue, which will remain as it currently is.


fully, we'll do them all. But if
not, we'll do it in stages. We
should be starting in 2013."
While FDOT had the best in-
tentions, its initial plans met
with some concern from com-
munities along the beaches.
Redington Beach led the
charge after state officials pro-
posed the installation of seven
crosswalks with six medians, or
"bull" islands. Town officials
said many of the medians
would force motorists to make
dangerous U-turns to reach res-
idences and businesses along


the boulevard.
Also, since Redington Beach
is primarily a residential com-
munity with few hotels, town of-
ficials believed the need for an
excessive number of cross-
walks/medians was unneces-
sary.
FDOT initially proposed
crosswalks at 157th, 158th,
160th, 161st, 162nd, 163rd and
164th avenues. The major con-
cern was over a proposed medi-
an at 164th that would require
a left turn that Mayor Nick Si-
mons said would have been


dangerous.
"It was our decision to let
(FDOT) know what we don't
want," said Simons.
In a Sept. 4 letter to Gary
Thompson, director of district
traffic operations for FDOT, the
town explained that the Town
Commission voted to eliminate
the proposed crosswalks at
157th, 160th, 162nd and 164th
avenues.
"By and large, FDOT listened,
went back and redesigned the

St. Pete strives to make streets, intersections safer


By TOM GERMOND

ST. PETERSBURG City officials continue to be ag-
gressive in their efforts to make streets safer for pedes-
trians by following the course that became a priority for
former Mayor Rick Baker more than a decade ago.
In the past 10 years the city has received more than
$30 million in federal government funds for bicycle and
pedestrian related improvements and has earned na-
tional recognition for being a pioneer in the use of LEDs
beacons at intersections.
The rectangular rapid flashing beacons have been in-


stalled at 42 intersections in the city. Another 55 will be
installed next year through $800,000 allocated to the
city.

What a difference a decade makes
A group called the Surface Transportation Policy In-
stitute produced a report every two to four years in the
1990s called "Mean Streets." The greater metropolitan
area of Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater was always
near the top areas based on the institute's analysis,
said Mike Frederick, manager-neighborhood trans-
portation for the city of St. Petersburg.


In 2000 when Mayor Rick Baker started, he put com-
munity safety as one of his platforms. One of his goals
was to get St. Petersburg off the Mean Streets report,
Frederick said.
City officials began work on a bicycle-pedestrian
master plan, spending a year working with committees
and the public to determine "all the things they wanted
to see for bicyclists and pedestrians." They expected the
plan would be implemented over decades because of a
lack of funds.

Police seek bank robber
LARGO Largo police are looking for a suspect in
the Jan. 3 robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank at 810
West Bay Drive.
At 3:50 p.m., the suspect entered the bank and
presented a note. No weapon was displayed or im-
plied during the robbery. The suspect fled on foot
from the bank in a southwest direction.
He is described as a white male, about 6 feet, 4
inches tall, weighing between 170 and 180 pounds.
He had a thin beard and was wearing an all black
suit with a white cap.
For more photos of the suspect, visit the Largo
Police Department's Facebook page at www.face
book.com/LargoPoliceDepartment.
Largo detectives are asking that anyone with in-
formation related to the suspect or this robbery to
call Detective C. Berard at 587-6730.

More than 100 animals
found in Oldsmar house
OLDSMAR Two persons were arrested for child
abuse and animal cruelty during an investigation
stemming from a call about a missing toddler.
Just before 6 a.m. on Jan. 6, deputies responded
to a call of a missing 16-month-old from the resi-
dence at 206 Lee St.
Jeffrey O'Neil, 28, and Jennifer Kovacs, 26, re-
ported that the child, whom they were caring for
had crawled out of the crib, opened the front door
and had been missing for at least an hour.


When deputies arrived on scene they found the
couple to be under the influence of alcohol. While
on scene, a note was discovered from a relative who
advised they had picked up the child and taken her
to their home because they could not wake O'Neil
and the child was crying. The child was located with
the relative. She was in good condition and was
properly being taken care of.
As deputies conducted this investigation, they
discovered the home to be in deplorable conditions
with more than 100 animals in 88 cages. Deputies
said the animals were being bred and sold without
the proper licensing and conditions. The Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was called to
the scene to conduct their investigation and remove
the animals from the home. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission were also noti-
fied.
O'Neil and Kovacs were transported to the Pinel-
las County Jail without further incident.

Pinellas deputies begin
serving St. Pete Beach
ST. PETE BEACH Pinellas County sheriffs
deputies began patrolling St. Pete Beach Jan. 6.
Pinellas County's southernmost beach city is now
the 13th city to contract for law enforcement servic-
es with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
In November, St. Pete Beach voters gave city com-
missioners the go ahead for the contractual ar-
rangement and transition from the city Police


Department to the Sheriffs Office for primary law
enforcement services.
Deputies departed from the current Police De-
partment Building, to begin their first shift in the
new contract city.
A total of 28 police department employees will
transition to the Sheriffs Office. Twenty-one officers
will be deputy sheriffs and seven civilian employees
will have assignments with their new agency.
The 21 former city officers will undergo a six-week
training session to learn Sheriffs Office policies and
procedures before taking their assignments in patrol
operations, or court security.

Detectives locate marijuana
grow-op after responding to fire
PALM HARBOR Pinellas sheriffs detectives lo-
cated a marijuana grow-op in a Palm Harbor resi-
dence Jan. 4 after responding to a reported fire at
3749 Appleton Court.
According to investigators, the Palm Harbor Fire
Department and sheriffs deputies responded to re-
ports of smoke at the Palm Harbor home located at
3749 Appleton Court
The fire, which was quickly extinguished, was de-
termined to be food cooking on the stove. Detectives
said the homeowner, identified as 60-year-old Kerry
S. Nichols had apparently fallen asleep while the
food was cooking. No injuries were reported.
Initially, fire department personnel suspected
there might be a meth lab in the home; and the


Haz-Mat Team was summoned to search the home.
No meth lab was found. Investigators located a mar-
ijuana grow-op in a back room of the residence.
About four plants and other grow-op equipment
were located and seized.
Nichols was arrested for cultivation and posses-
sion of marijuana and was transported to the Pinel-
las County Jail without further incident.
Bond was set at $5,150.

Suspect arrested in child
pornography investigation
DUNEDIN Detectives assigned to the Crimes
Against Children Unit arrested a suspect Jan. 4 at
2164 Edythe Drive for 10 counts possession sexual
performance by a child.
The arrest of the suspect is the result of an un-
dercover Internet investigation on individuals shar-
ing and possessing child pornography. Through
their investigation, which began Nov. 19, detectives
assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit identi-
fied a potential suspect. Detectives obtained a
search warrant that was served at the residence in
Dunedin.
The suspect, identified as John M. Kaneski, 42,
was interviewed and admitted to downloading the
child pornography found on his computer. The com-
puter was found to contain multiple images and
videos of children in the performance of sexual acts.
Kaneski was arrested without further incident
and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.

Program helps students get to school safely

The Walk A Way Train helps ensure students get to and from Ridgecrest
Elementary School safely.


By TOM GERMOND

Being stuck in the car lines on their
way to school can wear thin with children
and parents.
Many are finding a way around it in the
Walking School Bus program, through
which volunteers escort students to and
from schools.
The federally funded program under the
auspices of the Florida Department of
Transportation is run by All Children's
Hospital in Pinellas County.
Hospital community educator, Tiffany
Sabiel, the coordinator of the program,
helps map out the routes and find where
the kids are coming to school from, "espe-
cially now that Pinellas County schools
has gone back to neighborhood schools.
So a lot of kids are living 2 miles or less of
their school zone."
"A lot of them are walking to school. If
they are walking why not get the parents
involved and help them get there safely,"
Sabiel said.
Ridgecrest Elementary started a pro-
gram, called the Walk A Way Train, after
parents and staff heard a presentation


from Sabiel in December 2011. Parents
volunteered and received training and the
program was launched in mid-January
2012.
The Walk A Way Train is the name
coined by a group of school parents whose
families live in the neighborhood near the
elementary school, 1901 119th St.
"They have parents who currently are
walking every day to and from school to
help cut back with the truancy issue,
making sure the kids are getting there on
time to eat their breakfast and just mak-
ing sure that they are stopping at the
stop signs that they are looking right
and left, they are looking for vehicles.
They are crossing at the crosswalks, and
crossing with the crossing guards," Sabiel
said.
At least two other schools in the county
have a Walking School Bus program and
two more are starting this month.
"We go into the schools in Pinellas
County and we do education to try to re-
verse the trends of numbers of pedestrian
and bicycle deaths that we have in Pinel-
las County, which is very high in Florida
compared to all the other states," she


said.
In May volunteers and staff at Ridge-
crest Elementary spoke highly of the pro-
gram. Before the program was started
some of the children walking to and from
school caused behavior problems. That
subsided, as did tardiness.
"We are trying to help kids get out of the
cars being stuck in the car lines that are
20 minutes is a long time. It's faster, it's
fun to get on their feet and walk, and the
kids really enjoy it," Sabiel said.
The program continues to be positive in
many ways, said Michael Moss, who be-
came principal at the Ridgecrest before
the start of this school year.
"It serves to unite the local community
with parents coming together helping stu-
dents to walk safely to and from school.
Each morning and afternoon a group of
committed parents spend time leading the
train," Moss said. "The parents take pride
in the train and it really represents a
model for other schools to follow."

School Bus program, call Tiffany Sabiel at

ST. PETE, from page 1A

"Little did we know, however, that with a plan, we could apply for
funds and get in front of the cube. So there were various funding cate-
gories at the time of federal funds that were available," Frederick said.
The city started filing applications for funding with the Florida De-
partment of Transportation. Being ahead of other local jurisdictions in
planning, it received more than $30 million in funding over 10 years.
City officials augmented that with capital dollars from the Penny for
Pinellas and transportation impact fees. They set out to build certain
miles of bicycle facilities and enhance a certain number of pedestri-
an crosswalks.
... We turned a 20- to 30- to 40-year master plan into a 10-year
plan," Frederick said. "We've basically met all the requirements of
the plan at this point."
The city enhanced more than 100 crosswalks.
"By enhancement, I mean signs and markings as well as the rect-
angular rapid flashing beacons because we had virtually a zero per-
cent motorist yielding compliance at our crosswalks," he said. "No
one knew the state law that said you had to yield to a pedestrian at
a crosswalk," he said. "So we looked at it and said we are certainly
not helping the motorists any by not giving them proper cues. We in-
stalled various 'thou shalt yield to pedestrian signs, state law.'"
Also installed were yield bars and other improvements.

Flashing beacons get attention
The flashing crosswalk beacons, which alert motorists when a
pedestrian is preparing to use the crosswalk, were installed at major
intersections that had multiple crossing lanes. The visual impact of
beams is like that of a police strobe, Frederick said.
"We are well over 85 percent compliance. Some in the 90 percent
compliance. What that means, when a pedestrian comes up, pushes
a button, at the start of the activation, 85 percent of the motorists
will yield," he said.
The county's Metropolitan Planning Organization praised the use
of the beacons in an April 2011 newsletter, saying the success of the
beacons have resulted in the expansion of these signals around the
county.
At first city officials learned that many pedestrians initially didn't
push the button. But they began to see people pushing the buttons
on the devices and beginning to get compliance from motorists.
'They discovered it does work so more and more people are start-
ing to push it to the point that now we get calls all the time on a
daily basis from residents that say 'when is my crosswalk going to
get one?'" Frederick said.
There is a downside. Some motorists "don't think they have to
stop unless there is a flashing beacon, which isn't true," Frederick
said.
In 2005 St. Petersburg became the first jurisdiction to experiment


with the flashing beacons under federal permission.
"Based on our experimentation, evaluation and analysis, they
have allowed it now to be implemented nationally," he said.
Frederick believes use of the beacons will spread.
'The DOT, the county and other jurisdictions are now seeing the
benefit of it and looking at places where they can find funding to get
them in," Frederick said.
Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kristen Car-
son said in talking to an agency traffic engineer, it appears that the
flashing beacons are effective for pedestrian crossings.
"However, we do want to be a little bit careful that we don't put
them everywhere. Because like any sign, if you have too much of
something out there or any flashing device, we're afraid it can kind
of dilute the effect. But we do think right now they have a great ef-
fect for pedestrian crossings."
The agency will look at all of the issues involving the use of the
beacons, such as putting them at school crossings and maybe high-
volume pedestrian crossings.
"We're going to kind of look at it and see what's the best use for all
of them," she said.
The cost of the beacons, $10,000 each, is an issue, too, she said.
St. Petersburg was awarded the 2009 National Roadway Safety
Award for the crosswalk beacon, called "the Enhancer." The award is
given biennially by the Federal Highway and Roadway Safety Foun-
dation "for making verifiable and significant strides toward improv-
ing safety on the nation's highways."
In 2008, St. Petersburg was named the Best Walking City in Flori-
da and 35th in the nation by Prevention Magazine and the America
Podiatric Medical Society.

Looking ahead and 'tweaking'
City officials are re-evaluating its bicycle and pedestrian master
plan approved in 2003.
"Now our annual evaluation is looking at more detail. We got all
these facilities for bikes and peds now and we are still having crash-
es. So how do we address that? We can't build anything more. We
can tweak," said Frederick, who has been with the city for 12 years.
Since there are no large infrastructure improvements planned
soon, city officials started a corridor-by- corridor analysis, looking at
cause and effects of crashes.
"Why is there a group of crashes here? What types of crashes are
there? What behaviors is the bicyclist or pedestrian doing and what
measures can we take to address those behaviors? We have already
started on two of the corridors, 34th Street and Fourth Street, with
what's called a road safety audit, and we have a draft report now on
what counter measures can be implemented to address these specif-
ic hot spots," Frederick said.
The solutions may vary.
"It could be as simple as a sign," Frederick said.

St. Petersburg has installed rectangular rapid flashing beacons at 42
intersections. This one is at a crosswalk on Fourth Street next to
Sunken Gardens.


BEACHES, from page 1A


crosswalks," said Simons.
Redington Beach will keep crosswalks and medians at 158th and
163rd avenues. There also will be a crosswalk at the traffic light at
161st Avenue.
If ever the need for better pedestrian safety, it became glaringly ap-
parent in North Redington Beach in 2005 when an elderly couple was
hit by a car and killed at Gulf Boulevard and 171st Avenue. Since
then the town has implemented aggressive safety measures that in-
clude five crosswalks and education programs for pedestrians and
motorists.
"My concerns have always been pedestrian complacency and driv-
ers' inattention," said North Redington Beach Mayor Bill Queen.
"Crosswalks are only tools that when used properly will help pedes-
trians safely across the intersection. Education and enforcement of
pedestrians and drivers will only enhance the effectiveness of these
programs."
The key, Queen said, for pedestrians is a consistent approach
along Gulf Boulevard so that drivers see the same warning signs or
beacons in each town. FDOT is attempting to meet that goal by up-
grading crosswalks and using the RRFB technology.
"During our many conversations at the BIG-C regarding pedestrian
safety, the core theme has always been a consistent approach
throughout all the beach communities," Queen said. "Confusing driv-
ers and pedestrians with different applications in each town or city
would only add to the problem. We have been very fortunate that ev-
eryone agrees that consistency is safer and the more logical ap-
proach."
In Madeira Beach, FDOT has two projects in the works.
According to Kelli Bradley, a project manager with FDOT, the first
project will get under way in March for upgraded crosswalks and
raised medians at 129th, 130th and 155th avenues, along with a left-
turn lane from Gulf Boulevard northbound into Archibald Park at


Madeira Way.
The second project is targeted for 2014, It will include resurfacing
of Gulf Boulevard from John's Pass north to 150th Avenue. It also in-
cludes the installation of raised medians between 131st and 132nd
avenues, along with others at 133rd Avenue and about 20 to 30 feet
south of Boca Ciega Avenue.
Other medians are planned at 137th Avenue in front of Madeira
Sands, another in front of Tom and Kitty Stuart Park a half-block
south of 141st Avenue, 142nd Avenue, between 144th and 145th av-
enues in front of the public beach parking lot and another leading up
to the Tom Stuart Causeway.
'The first project was supposed to start the end of January 2013,"
Bradley said in an email. "However, there are some contract issues
that still need to be resolved. We believe construction for this project
will begin in March 2013 unless unforeseen issues come up."
Treasure Island, using its own funds with state and federal money,
has installed six pedestrian-activated crosswalks on Gulf Boulevard,
said City Manager Reid Silverboard. In addition to the new traffic
light at 104th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard, FDOT plans safety up-
grades to crossings at 104th, 107th and 108th avenues, Silverboard
said.
"We agree that additional pedestrian safety improvements are
needed on Gulf Boulevard, particularly where there are hotels and
motels, to help visitors safely across Gulf Boulevard," Silverboard
said in an email. "We agree that signalization, signage and pavement
marking needs to be standardized all along Gulf Boulevard so that
pedestrians and drivers are getting a constant visual message."
To the north, Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence said he has two
major areas of concern for pedestrian safety.
'The first is that many visitors, because of their home area empha-
sis on pedestrian right-of-way (particularly Canadian and European
visitors), tend to assume vehicles will stop and all too often that's not
the case, even at our well-marked pedestrian crosswalks," Lawrence
said. "My second major concern is vehicles passing on the right, even


when the vehicle in front of them has stopped to observe the occu-
pied pedestrian crossing. I see this all too often."
Lawrence said the FDOT's flag program at crossings was a good
idea to make pedestrians more visible to motorists but believes grant
money made available for pedestrian crossing education allowed the
police department to put additional officers on the street to speak to
pedestrians about safe crossing concerns.
Lawrence said he favors the new RRFB technology.
'These new strobe lights at pedestrian crossings, which will be
funded by federal dollars and should appear on Gulf Boulevard in
about two years, should enhance pedestrian safety," Lawrence said.
Cities and towns would fund maintenance of the RRFBs after
they're up and running.
Further north in Indian Rocks Beach, Mayor R.B. Johnson believes
FDOT Transportation is trying to have consistency with its flashing
pedestrian flashing signs at crosswalks and that they will be installed
in Indian Rocks Beach at some point.
'There isn't any particular opposition as far as I know to those in
Indian Rocks. I have seen those rapid flashing beacons down in St.
Petersburg, and I think they are very effective," he said. "So if we are
going to have any warning signs at all for pedestrians those are the
ones I prefer to have."
Commenting on other pedestrian safety issues, Johnson said the
city has had plans for several years to install about seven or eight
more crosswalks along Gulf Boulevard from 7th Avenue north.
City drainage work had to be completed before the county could do
paving work on Gulf Boulevard.
Johnson also said the city is planning to improve the intersection
of Walsingham Road and Gulf Boulevard to make it more pedestrian
friendly.
"It's kind of a mess because we have these raised islands sort of in
the middle of that intersection. You have to go to one and then to an-
other," he said. "It's just awkward for the pedestrian; it's awkward for
the driver."

Largo downplays
data center lease
LARGO A proposal said to save the city of
Largo about $1 million by leasing space in a pri-
vately-owned building instead of constructing a
new $3 million data center doesn't quite live up
to its estimated promises, city staff has conclud-
ed.
A memo written to the Largo Commission by
Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert Dec. 27
recommends that the city proceed with the de-
sign and construction of the stand-alone build-
ing instead of a lease. The 3,000-square-foot
building designed to house and protect the city's
computer, networking and server equipment is
slated for the southwest corner of the library
parking lot at 120 Central Park Drive. But the
project will cost about $1.1 million more than
the commission originally agreed to set aside for
it.
While commissioners reluctantly directed staff
to proceed with the more expensive project as
presented in November, businessman John
Hopengarten of Westchase Group later suggest-
ed the city lease the first floor in his proposed of-
fice building named the Highland Center at 701
Highland Ave. Necessary alterations to the build-
ing and a five-year lease would only cost
$2,076,844 and thus save taxpayer money, he
said in a rushed, unsolicited presentation during
the commission meeting Dec. 4.
In order to pursue the option of leasing, the
city would have to advertise a request for other
potential proposals. However, Commissioner
Robert Murray asked staff to look into Hopen-
garten's suggestion.
Schubert, IT Director Harold Schomaker and
Facility Manager Glenn Harwood met with
Hopengarten on Dec. 18 to discuss the details of
his proposal. The Dec. 27 memo outlines several
issues that were discussed as potential problems
with the lease.
The building would need about $1.6 million in
alterations not including interior finishes to
suit the city's specifications for a data center.
The office center would need to be hardened to
stand Category 5 hurricane winds, the ceiling
height would need to be raised about 2 feet to
accommodate a raised floor in the server room
and protection would have to be added to the
mechanical units and generator on the roof of
the building. Further, city staff wasn't sure if
there was room for semi-trailer trucks to back
into the driveway from Eighth Avenue and of-
fload necessary equipment.
"Mr. Hopengarten recognizes that the costs in
his proposal were based on limited information,"
Schubert wrote in the memo.
His memo repeatedly stated a concern for the
longevity of leasing the space. Given Hopen-
garten's cost estimates, the city would save
$749,254 over the five-year lease term proposed.
A 10-year lease would only net $213,650 in sav-
ings.
"At the end of the lease, the city would still
need a data center," the memo stated twice.


As an additional obstacle, the cost of a lease
could not come from the city's local option sales
tax fund, from which the current data center
project would be funded, but would have to be
paid from the general fund.
Hopengarten isn't the only member of the
community to suggest an alternative plan for the
data center. During a neighborhood compatibili-
ty meeting on Dec. 17, residents of the Lake Ali-
son subdivision also had concerns for the
proposed building, according to a weekly report
from the Largo city manager. The residents
feared the building would interrupt their homes'
view of Largo Central Park and change the am-
biance of Central Park Drive. They suggested it
be moved to the parking lot north of the library.
Staff agreed to consider the alternative location.
The data center, as reviewed by the commis-
sion on Nov. 13, would be ready to be occupied
by November 2013.

Clearwater sets
'legislative priorities'
CLEARWATER Every year, the Clearwater
City Council sends a wish list of "legislative pri-
orities" to the state legislature in time for its an-
nual 60-day session in Tallahassee. On Dec. 20,
the council approved its list of priorities for
2013.
One new addition to the list is a request for
state help in funding the improvements to the
historic 1921 Capitol Theatre downtown. By the
time the aging structure is enlarged and restored
to its flapper-era elegance, the city will have
sunk $7.1 million into the project. At the Dec. 11
groundbreaking for the renovations, State Rep.
Ed Hooper, a former Clearwater fire lieutenant
and City Commissioner, promised to try to get
some state funding for the project.
"The City of Clearwater will actively engage
with state agencies to pursue funding opportuni-
ties for Capitol Theatre renovations and other
downtown redevelopment initiatives to assist in
implementing projects and providing services to
meet the needs of our citizens and improve the
quality of life," the city's legislative priority list
says.
While the state is handing out money, Clear-
water also would like to get some for such things
as the Florida Recreation Development Assis-
tance Program, land and water conservation, li-
braries, and multi-type library cooperative
programs.
The city is going on the record as favoring an
increase, from the current $15 to $25, in the
Tampa Bay Estuary license plate fee. The legisla-
tive priorities list says that such an increase is in
line with the increases in the cost of 80 percent
of other specialty license plates.
Clearwater also will go on the record as being
in favor of full state funding of the Florida State
and Local Housing Trust Funds under the Sad-
owski Act.
One thing that the council felt strongly about
was wanting the state legislature to charge on-


line retailers a sales tax equal to the tax the
buyer would have had to pay if he had pur-
chased the item in person at a Florida store.
Without such a tax, the council members believe
out-of-state retailers have an unfair advantage
over local merchants.
"I think it's a travesty that we even had to ask"
the legislature to enact such a tax, Vice Mayor
Paul Gibson said.
In a similar request, the council asked the leg-
islature to require online travel companies to col-
lect the local bed tax on hotel rooms they book,
and to make sure that those companies under-
stand that the tax must be collected on the en-
tire amount paid by the customer.
State funding for Pinellas Safe Harbor and
similar facilities is also on Clearwater's wish list.
The list describes Safe Harbor as "a homeless
shelter that aligns individuals with needed social
service caseworkers and providers."
A statewide ban on bath salts and other syn-
thetic drugs is requested, as is a statewide policy
on energy development and conservation, with
incentives for the development and implementa-
tion of renewable and alternative energy sources.
To reach those energy goals, Clearwater suggests
that the state use the $192 million of Qualified
Energy Conservation Bonds allocated to it by the
federal government to promote economic devel-
opment and energy efficiency.
The final item on the city's list of things it sup-
ports is a continuation of the 1985 Highway
Beautification Act's State/Federal Agreement,
which prohibits the state from issuing permits
for billboards and other signs that violate the or-
dinances of the municipalities in which they will
be located.
The list of things that Clearwater opposes is
shorter than the list of things it supports. It in-
cludes unfunded mandates and state regulation
of, or restrictions on, municipal budgeting or op-
erations. It opposes forced consolidation of mu-
nicipal and county services, expansion of
gambling, and reduced municipal authority over
signage. It turns thumbs down on any proposal
that would give the state authority to repeal mu-
nicipal business taxes such as the business li-
censes that earn Clearwater $2 million a year.
Lastly, it opposes offshore drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico until alternative energy sources have
been developed and implemented, and all exist-
ing leases are either used or found to be inappro-
priate.

Bluffs approves less
costly fire pension option
BELLEAIR BLUFFS Faced with a state order
to pay its former firefighters annuity payments
totaling well over $1 million, the city has chosen
a less expensive option that could save about
$250,000.
The alternative plan, which involves "share
money" held by the state to be distributed to the
firefighters, would show savings for the city and
give the firefighters additional money, Mayor


Chris Arbutine has said.
"It's a win-win situation for all," Arbutine said
last month.
The commission passed an emergency ordi-
nance approving the share plan at the Dec. 17
regular meeting. The "emergency" designation
lets the ordinance take effect immediately upon a
two-thirds commission approval, without requir-
ing a second reading. The vote was 5-0 in favor
of the plan. The Fire Pension Board was made
aware of the city's offer, but took no action at
their meeting Dec. 14.
City Attorney Thomas Trask said the state ad-
ministrative judge's directive that requires the
city to pay the annuities also allows the state De-
partment of Management Services, the pension
board and the city of Belleair Bluffs to work out
a settlement agreement.
"Nothing in the judge's order prevents the par-
ties from settling," Trask said.
Resident George Lawton wanted to know if the
city is sure to get the share plan money. Trask
said he had spoken with the state's attorney and
was assured the funds are still available.
Trask said following the meeting that the pen-
sion settlement will require another week or so
for the details to be worked out with the DMS
and Pension Board attorneys.

Senior tax exemption
slated to increase
LARGO The Largo Commission gave initial
approval Dec. 18 to increase the extra home-
stead property tax exemption granted to seniors
who have an income about $27,000 or less.
The city is poised to lose $83,171 in tax rev-
enue in order to grant the additional relief to low-
income seniors. The exemption set for a boost is
one added on top of the standard exemption of
$50,000 for homesteaded properties.
Largo first enacted the additional $15,000 ex-
emption for seniors during the 2007 tax year.
The new proposal, supported by the commission
last week, would increase that exemption to
$25,000. The change comes thanks to an
amendment to the Florida constitution approved
by voters in November.
In order to qualify for the exemption, residents
must be 65 years or older and be a permanent
resident of their homesteaded home for 25 years.
The residents' household income also must fall
below the level defined as low-income, which is
currently $27,030, but likely will increase slight-
ly for 2013, explained Amy Davis, city budget
manager.
The Pinellas County Property Appraiser's Of-
fice estimates that roughly 1,273 Largo homes
would be affected by the change, Davis said.
Seniors will have to apply every year in order to
take advantage of the exemption, but would be
reminded after they qualify the first time.
The resolution, which commissioners ap-
proved unanimously Dec. 18, must pass a sec-
ond reading, scheduled for Jan. 8.

Take the family camping


* 9


Community 7A

but try a cabin instead of a tent


Camping in a tent in the woods is not something
I like to do. I have done it once in my life, and I
ended up sleeping in the car.
Recently though, a bunch of friends asked my
family to go camping. At first, I was a little hesi-
tant, but after looking at pictures online and talk-
ing to my friends, I decided we would try it.
Especially since we were going to be in a cabin and
not a tent.
We booked the camping trip a few months in
advance. We had to pay up front for our cabin, so
we really couldn't back out once we committed to
it.
The cabin was in Ocala at the Silver River State
Park. Besides the campground, the park has 10
cabins you can rent in the woods. The cabins are
$110 each per night. I think we had almost all the


cabins rented with our friends in them. Some of the
families shared a cabin to cut down on cost. You
can fit up to six people in a cabin.


We had our
own cabin,


Mom 2 Mom which was re-
Kadi Hendricks ally nice. I was
Tubbs a little nervous
about what to
expect until we
got there. But
we opened the door and saw it had a kitchen with a
dishwasher, stove, microwave and refrigerator. I
was delighted and amazed.
The cabin had two bedrooms and one bathroom
with a shower. To top it off, there is even a gas fire-
place. Each cabin had a wraparound porch with


rocking chairs and picnic tables. Outside our cabin
there was a fire pit and grill, so we could cook out.
The cabins were nicely updated and very clean. It
was so nice to be in the woods with electricity too.
My kids were even more excited than I was. This
was their first camping experience, and they were
thrilled to be in the woods with all their friends. We
had the best of both worlds as far as I could see: a
beautiful cabin surrounded by nature.
It was an enjoyable time to hang out with our
friends, grill and play games.
One night, we played card games and had fun
talking.
The next night, we had family relay races. Each
family competed against another family in races
like the sack race and egg on the spoon race.
The kids enjoyed running in the woods and


climbing trees.
You also can rent canoes and canoe down the
beautiful crystal clear river or go hiking or biking
on the trails.
We also had a chance to go in the Silver River
Museum, which is within walking distance from the
cabins. It was very educational and the kids liked
touring it.
Our camping trip was short, only two nights, but
it was a lot of fun. It's something I wouldn't mind
doing again.
And for the record, yes this is still camping. At
least in my book it is.

and 8. lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2Mom-

Looking for a home


Norman
Norman is a 2-year-old
domestic longhair cat. He is
king of the jungle and likes to
show off his purring skills
when he is brushed. He's a big
boy who likes to be treated
like royalty and needs to be
the only cat in the home so all
the attention is on him.
Norman has been neutered,
vaccinated and microchipped.
Call Pet Pal Animal Shelter at
328-7738, visit 405 22nd St.
S., St. Petersburg or visit
www.petpalanimalshelter.com.


Tank
Meet Tank, a handsome, 4-year-
old kitty who was brought to the
SPCA Tampa Bay as an injured
stray. He is a sweet boy seeking his
fur-ever home. He has been
treated by medical staff and is now
happy and healthy. Not much is
known about his past, but he has
been an absolute joy since he has
come to the SPCA. He would
make a wonderful pet in a quiet
home where he could cuddle up
into the lap of his favorite human.
Adopt him for only $10. Visit 9099
130th Ave. N., Largo, or www.
spcatampabay.org.


Axel
Axel is a 35-pound, smooth-coated
collie/terrier mix and is about 2
years old. He came to the Suncoast
Animal League as a stray. He is
young but probably has seen a lot
during his short life. He can be shy,
especially with men, when you first
meet him or bring him to a new
place, but he is loving and sweet
once he is comfortable and feels
safe. He just needs a little time and
patience but is definitely worth the
effort. He will be a fantastic, loyal
friend to the right family. He is
playful, affectionate, housebroken, is
good with other dogs, calm children
and cats. He wants to follow his
people around all day and would be
happiest in a quiet, predictable
home where he can get into a
routine. He is living with a foster
family, so call the Suncoast Animal
League office at 786-1330. Visit

Four-paw new year's resolutions


Happy New Year! You have
made your resolutions, but have
you considered how to include
your pets? The new year is a good
time to take inventory of your
heartworm and flea preventatives
and if you have been regular on
them. Florida has a high inci-
dence of heartworm disease, in-
testinal parasites, and flea
infestations. Is your pet up-to-
date on advised vaccines and par-
asite checks? Have they had a
dental exam lately? And the most
obvious, do they have some holi-
day pounds to shed?
Even if you do not have a flea
problem, many pets have allergies
to fleas. Fleas and ticks can trans-
mit diseases, and they are simply
not nice to have in the house.
Therefore, even if you do not think
you need it, I still advise flea pre-
vention monthly for pets in Flori-
da.
If my pet has been off heart-
worm prevention, can I Just

secutive months of preventative

back on a preventative. If you

vention. They are not a treatment
if your pet has a parasite, but the
preventative does make it less
likely for your pet to contract one.
I don't see worms in my pet's
stool, so why does It need a
fecal check?
Though there are some para-
sites that are visible in stool, the
majority are not. Only under a mi-
croscope can we find giardia, coc-
cidia, hookworms, whipworms,
etc. What most people don't real-
ize is that heartworm preventa-
tives also have some intestinal
parasite prevention. They are not
a treatment if your pet has a para-
site, but the preventative does
make it less likely for your pet to
contract one. A fecal parasite
check is advised annually for
every pet, but especially those that
have been off heartworm preven-
tative because they are at a higher
risk.

not. Even in those pets with medi-
cal conditions where vaccines are
not advised, it is still important for
us to evaluate your pet and dis-
cuss other forms of preventative
care, such as lab work, dental
care, etc. We try to tailor our vac-
cine protocol to each individual
patient, and I would be more than
happy to discuss it with you at the
time of exam. I also advise annu-
al, if not biannual, dental exams
for every pet to help in early detec-

ease. That bad breath does not
have to be that way.
Let us help you ring in a New

us to see if your pet is up to date

A stray no more





Mom E Cat showed up at Sue King's
Clearwater home in February 2012, and
Sue enjoyed watching Mom E climb her
neighbor's oak tree and jump onto her
patio roof, where the cat lived in the
eaves. In March, four little heads popped
up on the roof, and Mom E earned her
name. Over about a week, Sue managed
to catch each of the kittens as Mom E
hissed and swatted at her, and gave them
to Second Chance for Strays to find loving
homes. Sue then caught Mom E to get her
fixed. All was well until July, when she
went missing for four days. She returned
wide-eyed, thin and with a tilted head.
Sue brought Mom E to the vet twice for
shots and gave her antibiotics for two
weeks, but no one could figure out what
was wrong with her or how to fix it. Her
head is still tilted, but Mom E has adapted
to it. She has now adopted Sue as her
human, who can now pick her up and
give her kisses, and Mom E is definitely a
part of the King family. Mom E makes Sue
smile every day. As our pet photo winner,
Mom E wins a $25 gift certificate to ei-
ther Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas
Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra

Belleair man credits boxing for turning his life around


By BRIAN GOFF

BELLEAIR When he walked
into the gym and told the in-
structor he wanted to become a
professional boxer, the young
man was laughed at, and told he
had a long,
hard road
ahead and
he'd better
stop talking
and start
working.
Ever since
that day, -
four years
ago, Belleair justin Jones
resident
Justin Jones has hardly missed
a day of workouts and has be-
come a professional boxer. Now
Jones is getting ready for his
biggest bout yet, one he hopes
will continue to propel him to-
ward a world championship.
How did the 22-year-old native
Californian, known as "Kid
Thunder," find himself living in
the serene community of Belleair
and practicing in such a violent
sport? He says it came about be-
cause of his own nature and
family support.

"I was always a tough guy
growing up," he said. "In fact
that was my problem, always
trying to prove that I was
tougher than anybody else. I was
always doing some crazy things.
I got into downhill mountain bik-
ing; I had to show that I was
tough."
Eventually some of those crazy
things led to run-ins with the
law.
"I would steal stuff from
school, then I'd run away from
the police. I was just reckless
and stupid," he said.
A short stint behind bars
taught him a big lesson.
"I went to jail and discovered
there were a lot harder and
tougher guys than me."
It was then he moved from
California to stay with his aunt
and uncle, Joan and Sean
Jones, in Belleair and he's been
there for the past six years.
"My whole family has been a
great contribution to my life.
Without them I'd be a lot worse
off. They never once gave up on
me," he said.
When he was 18, four years
ago, he decided to check out
boxing to see if he'd like it. "It is

New Year's Resolutions for
Seniors and their Families t Comfor
traditionallyy after the holidays, Keepers
people are busy making their new
years resolutions, deciding to quit bad habits and simply make
changes to better themselves. New years resolutions are easy to
make and fun to plan. The hard part is acting on them and keeping
your intentions alive throughout the New Year.
his year, try a different approach. Think of ways to include fam-
ily and friends as support. Join forces and create resolutions to-
gether to increase the odds that you will stay true to these goals.
New years resolutions made together can be especially important
if you have a senior in your life. By helping each other, you each
gain a greater purpose, which can be most meaningful in the life
of a loved one who is growing older.
Comfort Keepers, one of the nation's leading in-home care net-
works for adults, is known for enriching lives of seniors through
Interactive CaregivingTM. Research has proven that keeping sen-
iors physically, mentally, socially and emotionally engaged can
help them retain better cognitive function, stay healthier and living
independently longer.
Encourage letter writing. Handwritten letters have nearly be-
come a thing of the past. However, our seniors are from an era
when writing a letter by hand was valued and presented a more
personal way of staying in touch. Seniors still enjoy receiving let-
ters in the mail and responding in like to friends and loved ones.
They may enjoy reading that special letter every now and then.
Even writing a simple short note is a wonderful gesture.
Plan to age gracefully. It is never too late to pursue a healthy
lifestyle. If you live near your senior loved one, take walks together,
eat nutritious foods and encourage one another while doing so.
Share your favorite recipes. Exchanging healthy recipes can
help your elderly loved one eat more nutritious meals and you are
ensured they are eating well. Finding old recipes together passed
down through the generations can be a fun "together" time!
Talk about the hard stuff. This may not be a fun resolution
but an important one. While your loved one is able, discuss the
care they may desire, should the time come when it is needed. Talk
about who may become the caregiver or if an outside source such
as Comfort Keepers, will be hired. Talk about estate planning and
wills, along with other related issues as this will prepare you all
for the inevitable. Discussing in advance en-
sures that your loves one's wishes are under-
stood by all.
/M making New Year's resolutions together cre-
ates one more common bond within your re-
lationship with your senior loved one. Use
the above ideas or create your own, unique
to your situation but involve your loved one
and help one another reach your goals.
Strengthen your relationships and share your
love...all year long.I

actually a funny story," he said.
"My girlfriend at the time never
let me do much, so to get out of
the house I went to a gym in
Clearwater to see what it would
be like, and I was hooked."
That was the day the instruc-
tor laughed at him. The instruc-
tor was Ron Valicoff of
Clearwater Fitness and Boxing
on Hercules Avenue. Valicoff
isn't laughing anymore. "I could
see that he was a very ambitious
kid," he said. "I just told him


back then to work and get in
shape and follow the program,
and he did it."
As a result Jones had 21 ama-
teur fights then turned pro, and
as a junior welterweight has a 5-
0 record. Valicoff said Jones' rise
to the professional ranks was
quick.
"I wanted him to have 50 ama-
teur fights, to me 21 wasn't
enough. But the decision was his
and he's done well."
It didn't start so well however.

"He lost his first amateur fight
because he lost focus," said Vali-
coff. "His girlfriend and his fami-
ly were in the crowd and before
the fight he was going around
talking to them instead of con-
centrating on the bout. But even
after he lost, he regrouped and
came back and won fights and
now he's a professional."
Once he turned pro Jones had
to leave the Clearwater gym. Val-
icoff said he wasn't equipped to
train professional boxers.
"I'm strictly an amateur coach.
I'm not set up for pros, we train
average people."
Jones now trains at the Gold-
rush Gym in Tampa under
Coach Larry Barryan.
A junior welterweight has to
fight at between 136 and 140
pounds.
"Walking around day to day I
weigh about 150," said Jones. "It
is tough to get my weight back
down when I'm training but if
you are disciplined you will be all
right; you have to watch your
diet."
Of his professional wins three
were by knockouts and the other
two were decisions. Jones said it
isn't easy.


West Coast Play


"I haven't even made a thou-
sand dollars yet," he said. "But
better days are ahead." The first
of those better days will be on
Jan. 25 in Hinkley, Minn., at the
Grand Casino. He's scheduled to
fight R.J. Laase and it is the co-
main event. Jones expects a
tough fight but said Laase is in
for a surprise.
'This is the first time that I'll
be going eight rounds," he said.
"Up until now all my fights have
been four rounders. Laase is the
hometown boy with a 9-1 record.
They think they have signed me
to use me to build him up, but
I'm going to make sure that's not
the case."
Jones said he'd get $3,000 for
the fight, by far his best payday
yet.
No matter what happens on
Jan. 25 Jones says boxing has
saved his life.
"I love the sport of boxing; it
has definitely turned my life
around. I can't do anything but
enjoy it," he said. "I have trav-
elled and met so many people
who have done a lot for me. I
love boxing; there is no other

Low tides should result in great fishing later in the week


Extreme new moon tides later this week will all
but empty the Intracoastal Waterway.
Grass flats that are rarely exposed will be dry
for much of the morning. This situation can pro-
vide some spectacular inshore fishing.
So focus your efforts on small cuts on the very
outer edges of the secondary grass flats, much
like points and coves along a mangrove shore-
line. These cuts provide some structure that will
attract bait as well as the mullet schools that the
redfish and gator trout shadow.
Redfish can often be spotted tailing in these
low tide conditions. Hopping out of the boat and
quietly stalking them as they make their way
onto the flat with the incoming tide is perhaps
one of the most exciting and humbling ways to
catch fish in our region.


These often-spooky redfish can be caught on a
variety of soft-plastic lures, especially the scent-


;: Fish Tales
i .1,


ed ones, and
will even strike
a top-water plug
at times. Your
best bet howev-
er for hooking
up would have
to be a live se-


lect shrimp. Use the smallest peg style float you
can find as a strike indicator pegged a foot or so
above your shrimp.
This will allow you to track your shrimp so you
can cast it well beyond the fish and draw it back
to them.
Top-water plugs have been extremely effective


lately in the early morning hours. There's plenty
of big trout roaming the Intracoastal right now
and a noisy top-water plug that can be casted
well away from the boat is probably the best way
to target them.
Also, spoil islands in the northern part of the
county are still holding good concentrations of
trout. Target peak tidal movement for best ac-
tion. Soft-plastic jigs in natural shrimp colors
work well as does a free-lined select shrimp.
If you're looking for a good shrimp alternative,
try setting out a pinfish trap over shell bottom.
Baited with frozen sardines on a full tide either
incoming or outgoing, your trap should load up
with small pinfish and grunts, both of which will
work great for trout.
Silver trout are schooled up along area beach-


es from John's Pass north to Indian Shores.
These areas have been holding plenty of silver
trout.
Drifting with the wind and tide while bouncing
brightly colored soft-plastic jigs off the bottom is
a great way to locate them. When it's too rough
to drift fish, use your bottom machine to help lo-
cate the trout.
Typically the schools will hold near the bottom
in 8 to 15 feet of water.
Until next week, get bent!

A dolphin holiday dance


Legend. Local lady bottlenose dolphin Slightwin
got more and more animated until she was doing
back leaps with double twists.
It was one of those picture-perfect Florida winter
days, but as it was sandwiched between winter days
when boating is inadvisable, the clear blue sky,
calm green seas and lively gray dolphins were even
lovelier for the
wait. Capt. John
Heidemann and Dolphin
I were on the
southern leg of Watch
our bottlenose Ann Weaver
dolphin survey
route, which we
monitor for the federal record, when we spied a dol-
phin dorsal fin way in the distance. It was the start
of a dolphin observation that would contain all of
the elements of good fieldwork, the way all the ele-
ments of a perfect vacation are part of a great holi-
day.
Like a great holiday has lots of leisure, fieldwork
requires lots of patience. These particular dolphins
required even more than the usual amount of pa-
tience to approach and identify because they cov-
ered great distances of water between surfacing to
breathe. We'd see a dorsal fin near a sea wall; the
next view revealed that it had covered the distance
of the length of one or sometimes two football fields.
Holidays can be exasperating and the same goes
for fieldwork. Nonetheless, Capt. Heidemann navi-
gated with admirable aplomb over the many min-
utes it took us to eventually decide there were two
dolphins there, female Slightwin and male PC, each
searching independently for food. Hunting dolphins
cover a lot of aquatic territory, but both Slightwin
and PC are young adult dolphins. As such, they're
members of the fleetest bottlenose dolphin age class
of all.
Like a great holiday involves welcome but unex-
pected guests, fieldwork requires flexibility.


Slightwin and PC changed course abruptly, which
free-ranging dolphins do both literally and figura-
tively. Suddenly their hunt was over. With splendid
coordination they left their respective bays and sur-
faced next to each other, traveling spritely to a hid-
den cove some distance away.
Just as there is always room for more snacking
during the holidays, once in the hidden cove these
young adult dolphins worked together to snare a
few more fish snacks. At the height of their physical
powers, it was nothing to sprint down the entire
length of the hidden cove in one powerful surge.
Then it was time to alternate feeding (the world's
oldest behavior) with the world's other oldest behav-
ior. Slightwin took the lead and commenced to put
on one of the most alacritous displays of aerial be-
haviors we've seen to date.
Dolphin aerial behaviors are any behaviors in
which much of the dolphin's body comes out of the
water. Dolphins often do aerial behaviors when in-
volved with activities that serve to perpetuate the
species. Sometimes this is to avoid unattractive
suitors, but sometimes it seems to serve to attract
suitors' attention. Today it seemed to me that
Slightwin went airborne to attract PC, for she leapt
repeatedly, put a great deal of spin on her leaps
(again literally and figuratively) and most impres-
sively landed near PC without striking him but also
managed to slide back into the water more like a
delicate ballerina with pointed toe than a tree crash-
ing in the woods.
Like you going dancing over Christmas, Slightwin
became more animated with time, starting slowly
with "mere spyhops" but becoming more energized
until she was doing back flips with double twists.
Her utter physical control was pure elegance in ac-
tion.
For his part, PC stayed in the water and accom-
modatingly swam over or next to her whenever she
slid back into the brine. This went on for many min-
utes, save the moment when Slightwin buzzed a fish

Dolphin acrobatics make for quite a show.


next to the boat like a dancer stopping to pop an
hors d'oeuvres before springing back to the dance
floor.
Again, with the suddenness with which dolphins
change course, PC and Slightwin surfaced side-by-
side and spritely traveled out of the hidden cove. As
we watched them head north, my heart and soul
danced in the rich rewards of fieldwork, better than


any holiday.

Getting it right


for our children

President Obama has rightfully declared "our first job as a nation is to
care for our children ... and to give all of them a chance at a good life
with happiness and purpose."
As an educator for 36 years, I want to suggest a few ways the nation
can help us reach
this goal.
The first thing we '-"
must do is to make
sure every child in As I See It
need has access to Roseanne Wood
high-quality, pre-Rosenne Wood
kindergarten educa- ___
tion. Study after
study shows the long- I
term benefits of early
intervention, especially with our at-risk children. The first seven years of
a child's life are the most formative of their character and future success.
The president asked if we are meeting our obligations to all of our chil-
dren. The current answer is NO, but we could fix this.
We need to increase social work and behavioral and mental-health
counseling services at our schools to help teachers, parents and stu-
dents. Counselors are so overloaded at schools (usually one counselor
for 400 students) that they scarcely have time to provide much more
than academic advisement and testing coordination. Parents of "high-
needs children" want a safe place to get help, and schools are the most
logical place for this.
We needfto to trust educators to do what is best for their students. We
must end the current obsession of evaluating schools and teachers with
standardized test scores, as if that is all that matters. We want teachers
who are skilled, compassionate and willing to hide their children in a
closet if that's what it takes to keep them safe.
As a former public school principal, I can tell you that there are hun-
dreds of reasons why standardized test scores often have little to do with
the talents of the teacher or the quality of the school. Schools and teach-
ers who take on the most challenging students are frequently the ones
who look like they accomplished the least, when exactly the opposite is
true. Standardized tests can be a good benchmark for progress, but
there will never be a valid test that measures the most important things
teachers and counselors do for our children.
Let's begin treating principals like CEOs and allow them to lead their
schools using their professional training to evaluate teachers in mean-
ingful ways. Hold them accountable for results and let them do what's
best for their students. We don't need to waste more time and money on
developing standardized tests for every subject, especially elective class-
es. Hands-on, engaging learning can do more for a child's motivation,
self-esteem and "belongingness" than anything else.
Teaching our students the social and emotional skills of compassion,
empathy and coping with life's frustrations are just as important as hon-
ing their academic skills. We need to shift our policies and priorities to-
ward valuing the talents and gifts of all children, giving them all that
chance at happiness and purpose. As the president said, "If we don't get
that right, we don't get anything right."
Roseanne Wood is president of Reform Works, Inc., and a retired princi-
pal of SAIL High School in Tallahassee, Fla.

Pedestrian awareness needed
Editor
Your recent series "Watch Your Step" has caused me to call FDOT to
inquire about the Transportation Improvement Program that was un-
dertaken by the MPO in 2010, and which included a request by Belleair
Bluffs to construct pedestrian crossings across West Bay Drive, west of
Indian Rocks Road. Much to my surprise, I found that the program has
been disbanded, and our request for pedestrian crossings is now in
limbo. Needless to say, I am now contacting the MPO and the Pinellas
County Commission to see if our request could be reinstated.
As you state, Florida's pedestrian crash fatalities are worse than any
other state except New Mexico, and Pinellas County's statistics are
higher than the average in Florida. And, as your column points out,
County Commission Vice-Chair Karen Seel has recently indicated, "this
is an area that needs more attention moving forward." The proximity of
the Belleair Bluffs/Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge, with its constant
flux of health-minded walkers and the nearness of condominiums with
their elderly grocery shoppers, make this area particularly vulnerable to
pedestrian crashes. As usual, vehicle speed is a significant factor in
these crashes, with failure to yield by pedestrians also a causal factor.
Your series will serve to heighten everyone's attention to the extreme
need for pedestrian awareness, especially during this time of year.
I am hopeful that our request for pedestrian crossings on West Bay
Drive can be approved for construction in the near future.
Jack Nazarlo
Commissioner, city of Belleair Bluffs

Reflective tape would protect pedestrians
Editor.
I was very interested in the recent coverage of "protecting Pedestri-
ans."
As a safety specialist with the Air Force, and Hartford Insurance, I
would like to make the following suggestion.
I was driving back from Fort Lauderdale and it was dark when I
drove through Indian Rocks beach. There were a lot of people walking
on and off the road, normally in dark clothes, and almost invisible to
drivers except there was one group that had a piece of reflective tape
on his jacket. Bingo, I saw there was a group on and off the street.
I think that beach communities should provide restaurants and ho-
tels for our visitors (with a piece of sticky back reflective tape) to display
the tape, when they are out at night. A piece of tape about 10 inches
long, and 2 inches wide would do fine. I don't think that would cost
that much.
That would be a really great accident prevention tool.

How much time is a life worth?
Re: Pedestrian safety, by Suzette Porter, Jan. 4
Editor
What is needed is a dedicated walk signal so there is no overlap be-
tween a walk signal and a green arrow. Drivers who have a green arrow
consider people are jaywalking because they see the arrow and not the
walk signal. The light duration is generally a long duration so a slight
modification could easily be timed in. How much time is a life worth?
And right turn on red is allowed only after a complete STOP and even
when they stop at a crosswalk/stop sign they are through the cross-
walk before they stop (see Highland/Nursery). Start ticketing people.
Someone local should be sent to other cities to compare notes on
safety and also public transportation, etc.
Just a thought from a Boston transplant, where I felt safer when on
foot or bike.

Taking aim at the gun wars
Editor.
The anti gun people wind up contradicting their argument by leaving
people helpless against an attacker. They need to switch a side of their
argument if they want any chance of success. They need to allow a po-
tential victim a means to defend himself or herself.
They should push hard for legislation to allow ALL people to carry
Mace anywhere they may go. Even teenagers could be qualified. There
is a slang word for a gun; it's called an "Equalizer". Mace could fill the
void between guns and helplessness and become the new Equalizer.
Misuse or abuse of Mace? Better then death, and the victim lives to
ID the abuser. Abuse would be minimal when the aggressor knows the
tables could turn.
The bottom line would be that gun sales would drop, Mace sales
would skyrocket and deaths would diminish.

The ups and downs of the spy game


If I were young and just starting out, I'd se-
riously consider applying for a position as a
spy. It's plain that America needs as many
well-trained spies as we can develop. With ter-
rorists of various stripes plotting to blow us
up, we must send in our spies to foil their
plans.
I recently searched the want ads in some
newspapers and on Craig's List for "Spies
Wanted" openings, but found none. I don't
know of any colleges or technical schools that
train spies. A next step might be to identify
the agencies and companies who hire spies.
However, I believe that "spying" is no longer
an accepted term. What the big boys now talk
about is "intelligence" and "security."
At last count, the federal government had
about sixty "intelligence-gathering" outfits.
Some spy on terrorist groups; others steal se-
crets from foreign governments, including our
allies; many government agencies spy on you
and me. Politicians in power don't trust the
citizenry any more than we trust the politi-
cians.
The Central Intelligence Agency is a major
employer of spies. So is the National Security
Agency. Computer and pharmaceutical com-
panies are famous for spying on each other,
attempting to steal industrial secrets. A few
years ago someone tried to organize a national
convention for spies, but nobody was willing
to attend, even though the featured speaker
was billed as "Nathan Fizrolvey, Famous Spy."
To be successful a spy must remain un-
known. He/she must also be a sneak. I've
often thought that unfaithful spouses would
make excellent spies; they're good at covering
their tracks, and saying "Who? Me?" when ac-
cused of committing hanky-panky.
The worst way to learn about the spy game
is to watch TV spy programs. The most outra-


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver



geous of these is "MI-5," named for the top-se-
cret British spy agency. The program's pro-
ducers ask us to believe that the intelligence
operation for the entire British Empire is car-
ried out by about a dozen agents and six com-
puters. Each week this small band of spooks
manages to outwit evildoers just minutes be-
fore the bad guys try to blow up Parliament or
the London subway system. What makes the
plots even more unbelievable is that the MI-5
people are successful despite the fact that
they don't really trust their colleagues. That's
because there's usually a mole somewhere in
the waxworks swiping secrets to sell to Iran,
Al Qaeda or the Vatican.
Another flaw in most TV or movie spy sto-
ries is that the secret agents seldom meet in
a dark alley where nobody can see them. In-
stead they usually hook up in a public park
on the banks of the Thames, where any pho-
tographer or sniper within two miles can
shoot them with a camera or a Barrett M98B
bolt-action rifle.
A successful spy must be adept at shadow-
ing people, staying in the background so that
they don't recognize him. Hulk Hogan and
Sarah Palin would be no good as spies.
High on the CIA's recruitment list are
stalkers, those creepy people who hang
around celebrities, hoping for a smile or an
autograph. As Socrates once put it, "Deep


within every stalker is a spy yearning to get
out."
If a spy's identity is discovered by his tar-
get, the secret agent is said to be "burned."
Spies have their own special vocabulary. If
your mother-in-law suddenly starts to talk
about bugs, dead drops and safehouses, she
is probably a spy. If she demands that you
give her the correct password before she ad-
mits you to her house, you can be sure of it.
The best-known fictional spy is James
Bond, also referred to as Agent 007. He is fa-
mous for ingratiating himself with beautiful
women who work for international fiends. In
real life, a spy has few female friends. That's
because sensible women seldom get the hots
for a scruffy, non-descript man in a dirty
trench coat who sits all day in a sidewalk cafe
reading newspapers and drinking cheap gin.
That's the life of the typical spy.
The most frightening thing about spy work
is that when the enemy catches you, you are
a goner. Your own government denies know-
ing you. You have no friends to support you.
It's exactly like being fired from your job here
in America after years of faithful service.
"Jones, you've got an hour to clear out your
desk, you useless insect!"
American intelligence agencies are notori-
ous for not having courageous, Arabic-speak-
ing, democracy-loving spies in their employ. If
we had owned a few dozen such men and
women stationed in the Mideast back in 2000
or so, we'd have known better than to get in-
volved in that quagmire. Our spies would
have warned us, "Stay out. Only death, de-
struction and hatred await you here!" But
would we have listened?

Time to debate the death penalty


It defies logic that taking life honors life.
For the second year in a row, Florida has
sent more convicted killers to death row than
any other state.
And acting Palm Beach County State Attor-
ney Peter Antonacci would like to send more.
His office is now seeking the death penalty for
all first-degree murder cases.
There were 22 new death penalty cases
this year in Palm Beach County.
"You have a dead human being," Antonacci
told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He said
that by not seeking the death penalty, "we
have cheapened the value of human life."
There are many ways we cheapen the value
of human life. Sexism, racism, ageism, dis-
crimination against gays, the disabled, athe-
ists and others with different or no religious
views are but a few examples.
A political and economic system that al-
lows millions to go without food, shelter and
health care is another.
As is a justice system that sanctions tax-
payer-funded killings.
Killing is no more just when the govern-
ment does it than when an individual does.
A life for a life is not justice. It is retribu-
tion.
That is not the purpose of our legal system.
What's more, the death penalty does not
deter people from killing, which proponents
claim is its purpose. Our murder rate far ex-
ceeds that of many countries that have no
death penalty.
The United States, China, the Congo,
Saudi Arabia and Iran account for 85 percent
of the world's death-penalty executions.
Many would argue that this isn't the kind of
human-rights company we want to be keep-
ing.
Our justice system makes mistakes. If for

Our justice system makes
mistakes. If for no other
reason, death should not
be a penalty for any crime.

no other reason, death should not be a penal-
ty for any crime.
Not only does Florida lead the nation with
21 individuals sentenced to death this year,
according to the Death Penalty Information
Center, it's also No. 1 for the number of
death row inmates exonerated.
Just last month, the 24th inmate since
1973 was set free. At his third trial, a jury
found Seth Penalver, who had been sen-
tenced to death in 2000 for killing three peo-
ple, not guilty after a five-month trial.
Three trials. Three results. The first result-
ed in a deadlock.
If that's not enough evidence that our sys-
tem is flawed, consider the case of Frank Lee
Smith.
Cancer set him free from Florida's death
row after serving 14 years for a murder and
rape he didn't commit. The Innocence Project
cleared Smith with DNA evidence 11 months
after he died.
How many other innocent people have
died behind bars? How many have we exe-


cuted?
We will never know.
The lives of the innocent are the cost we
pay for the lives of the guilty. It's not worth
the price.
When Gov. Rick Scott signed his first
death warrant last year, he said implement-
ing the death penalty is "not an enjoyable
process."
"It takes a toll on you. It's something you
really need to think about," he said. "You've
got to be very cautious about it. I've prayed a
lot about it. And it's the law of the land."
Actually, it's the law in 33 states. Florida
was the first state to reintroduce the death
penalty after the U.S. Supreme Court struck
down all death penalty laws in 1972.
Laws are made to be changed. Florida can
lead the way in another direction.
Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasalinda, D-Tal-
lahassee, filed a bill last year to abolish the
death penalty. It died in committee but it
doesn't have to be that way.
Isn't it time that we at least had a debate?
"Life without parole is a sensible alterna-
tive to the death penalty," said Rehwinkel
Vasalinda. "It is much less expensive to keep
a criminal in prison for life without parole
than it is for the state to execute them. A
sentence of life in prison without parole al-
lows mistakes to be corrected or new evi-
dence to come to light. That would increase
faith and fairness in our justice system."
So would a state that doesn't kill to punish
killers.

Business owners advised to take initiatives to prevent flu


With cold and flu season upon us, the transfer
of germs and illness in the workplace increases.
Better Business Bureau advises business own-
ers to take initiatives in preventing the spread of
illness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
says this germy bug costs businesses nearly $10
billion in employee medical visits every year. Keep
your employees healthy by maintaining a clean
and productive work environment. The CDC has
made it easier with a free employer tool kit, "Make
It Your Business to Fight the Flu."
Here are some tips to help protect employees
and customers as much as possible:


Acquire products that ward off germs. Hand
sanitizers, tissues and disinfectants are all prod-
ucts that can aid employees in keeping the
workspace clean. Make them readily available
throughout your workspaces.
Advise employees to stay home. While sick em-
ployees may deem it necessary to attend work,
their presence will only expose healthy employees
to contagions. If employees are sick, they should
stay home for at least 24 hours after they no
longer show symptoms. Consider creating a leave
policy that allows employees to work from home
should they (or their children) fall ill.
Enforce good hygiene in the work place. Insti-


tute the cleaning of shared equipment such as
phones and computers, and wipe down common
areas with disinfectant regularly. Remind employ-
ees of the importance of washing their hands, as
well as covering their mouth when sneezing
and/or coughing. Encourage them to "sneeze in
your sleeve," rather than into their hand, to re-
duce the spread of germs.
Promote flu shots. Search for on-site flu shots
through your local hospital, retail pharmacy or
other health care provider, or consider reimburs-
ing some or all of the cost for employees to receive
the shot on their own.
Hold a health fair. Contact your local hospital


to see if they provide health fairs for employers. If
your business isn't large enough, you can possibly
team up with others in your building, office, park
or neighborhood. If you are in a retail location, you
can invite the community, as well. You also can
contract the coordination of an on-site health fair
with a company specializing in the service.
Be the example. It is important for the employ-
er to follow the same advice being given to the em-
ployees. As the boss, it may seem impossible to
take a sick day, but it is just as important for you
to stay home and keep your germs out of the of-
fice.
Visit www.bbb.org for more information.

mechanical engineer, machinist, private pilot and a pioneer in scuba
diving in the late 50's and 60's. He will be greatly missed. In lieu of
flowers, donations can be made to the ASPCA. A memorial service
will be held at Hubbell Funeral Home, Belleair Bluffs, on Saturday,

A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the
following films opening in wide release:
'Gangster Squad'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael
Pena, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone and Sean Penn
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Rated: R
Los Angeles, 1949.
Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs
the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the
guns, the prostitutes and if he has his way every wire bet placed
west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his
own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians he has under
his thumb. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened
cop ... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of ILAPD outsiders led
by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan
Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.
'Zero Dark Thirty'
Genre: Action, drama and thriller
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle,
Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler and Edgar Ramirez
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Rated: R
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives,
working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal:
to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden.
"Zero Dark Thirty" reunites the Oscar winning team of director-pro-
ducer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal for the story of
history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man.
'A Haunted House'
Genre: Comedy, horror and thriller
Cast: Marlon Wayans, Nick Swardson, David Koechner, Essence
Atkins, Cedric the Entertainer, Bobbie Lee and Dave Sheridan
Director: Mike Tiddes


Stationed in a covert base overseas, Jessica Chastain, right, plays a
member of the elite team of spies and military operatives with
Christopher Stanley, left, who secretly devoted themselves to finding
Osama bin Laden in Columbia Pictures' electrifying new thriller
directed by Kathryn Bigelow, "Zero Dark Thirty."
Rated: R
In an outrageous send up of the "Paranormal Activity" movies, 'The
Devil Inside" and other "found footage" movies, "A Haunted House" fea-
tures young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence
Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house.
As they settle in, they quickly find they're not alone. But it's not the

'Fairhaven'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Chris Messina, Rich Sommer, Sarah Paulson and Tom
O'Brien
Director: Tom O'Brien
Not rated
A former high school football star and one time college athlete,
Jon has landed back in the place of his youth Fairhaven a small
fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. Now in his mid thirties,
and with the promise of younger days seemingly washed ashore,
Jon's vague feelings of dissatisfaction are crystallized by a television
interview with his football hero Tom Brady, who proclaims that,
even after three super bowl wins, "There's got to be something more
than this."
Jon recounts his epiphany to Sam, old friend and schoolmate
who married early, fathered early, divorced early and never left
town. Sam made his own peace with small town life years ago, and
is happy enough just to provide a stable home for his loving daugh-
ter, Cara, while secretly still pining for his beautiful ex-wife Kate.
Together, Jon and Sam anticipate the return of Dave, the third
member of their once-indomitable trio. Having left town seven years
ago and never looking back, Dave is finally returning to Fairhaven
on the occasion of his estranged father's death. As tonic to Jon's
soulful self-inquiry and Sam's stoic loneliness, Dave is determined
to inject some heavy-duty, Vegas-style fun into the funeral week-
end. But when old dreams and simmering resentments come to the
beer and tequila-soaked surface of their reunion, not even Dave can
fend off a healthy dose of reality.

'My Best Enemy'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Moritz Bleibtreu and Georg Friedrich
Director: Wolfgang Mumberger
Not rated
Vienna in the 1930s.
Since his childhood, Victor Kaufmann (Moritz Bleibtreu), the son of
wealthy Jewish gallery owners (Udo Samel and Marthe Keller), has
been close friends with Rudi Smekal (Georg Friedrich). Victor's girl-
friend, the perky and attractive Lena (Ursula Strauss), rounds off the
inseparable trio that vows to stick together come hell or high water.
The Kaufmanns are shocked when Rudi shows up in an SS uniform
after the annexation of Austria. The whole family is sent to a concen-
tration camp, against Rudi's will. Years later, the Nazi bosses in Berlin
want to present Italy's Duce with a confiscated Michelangelo sketch
that belongs to the Kaufmanns. But the sketch is a forgery. They want
the genuine Michelangelo! Rudi is ordered to get Victor out of the con-
centration camp and bring him to Berlin for interrogation. Their plane
is shot down by partisans, however, and Victor doesn't have the heart
to simply leave the injured Rudi behind. He drags him into a hut and
offers to share his concentration camp clothing with him. One gets the
pants, the other the jacket, and thus both have nothing to fear from
the Polish soldiers.
But while Rudi is putting on the prison camp jacket, Victor hears
the alleged partisans speaking German. With great presence of mind,
he quickly puts on Rudi's uniform. When the German soldiers barge
into the hut, Victor presents them with his "prisoner," the wildly
protesting Rudi. The Jewish prisoner becomes an SS man, and the
Sturmbannfithrer the prison-camp inmate. A game with reversed
roles. A game of life and death, in which Lena must decide on whose
side she's on. Wolfgang Murnberger relates a captivating story of
friendship, love and betrayal. Tragedy and humor are close together in
this film, which takes on a special human depth through its nuanced
and warmhearted character depiction.

High school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer) was destined for
bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer.
He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan
when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school park-
ing lot.
Demonstrating that life is what happens while you're busy planning
your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, in-
sightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popu-
lar kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson)
and a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney) who's more in-
terested in the bottle than her son's future and an estranged father
(Dermot Mulroney) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancee
(Christina Hendricks).

Iconic folk, blues singer Tom Rush to perform in Largo


LARGO His music has left its
stamp on generations of artists
and his impact on the American
music scene has been profound.
Iconic American folk and blues
singer, songwriter, musician and
recording artist Tom Rush will
perform Friday, Jan. 11, 8 p.m.,
at the Largo Cultural Center, 105
Central Park Drive, Largo.
Tickets start at $19.50. Call
587-6793 or visit www.largoarts
.com.
Rush has been touring steadily
for decades, bringing that unmis-
takable voice and those superla-
tive songs to devoted audiences
across the country. In the 1960s,
he helped shape the folk revival.
Rush was virtually the first to
record songs by then-unknowns
such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson
Browne and James Taylor.
Rush released a series of early
albums including 'Tom Rush at
the Unicorn" (1962), "Got a Mind
to Ramble" (1963), "Blues, Songs
& Ballads" (1963) and "Tom
Rush" (1965).
Emerging from the early '60s
Boston/Cambridge folk scene as
a folk-blues singer and guitarist,
Rush helped link folk to rock with
his 1966 Elektra album, 'Take a
Little Walk with Me," which in-
cluded a side of electric cover ver-
sions of songs by Bo Diddley,
Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry, as
well as his own first self-penned


song, "On the Road Again."
His next album, 1968's "The
Circle Game," was singled out by
Rolling Stone Magazine as the
record that ushered in the singer-
songwriter era with its debut of
songs by Mitchell, Browne and
Taylor before they had released
any albums themselves. The
album also featured what has be-
come Rush's best-known song,
"No Regrets."
Subsequent albums for Elektra
and Columbia became showcases
for other deserving songs by the
likes of Bruce Cockburn, Guy
Clark, Eric Kaz and Richard
Dean. Following "The Circle
Game," Rush released "Tom
Rush" (1970), "Wrong End of the
Rainbow (1970), "Merrimack
County (1972) and "Ladies Love
Outlaws" (1974).
Then, for 35 years, Rush didn't
release a new album.
There were a few live albums
as welcome reminders of his re-
laxed, expressive baritone,
skilled guitar-playing, droll
humor and infallible taste in
writing and choosing material ...
but the recording artist simply
chose not to release new studio
material.
Finally, in 2009, patient fans
were rewarded when Rush re-
leased a new studio CD, "What I
Know," his first since 1974 and
his debut for Appleseed. 'What I


Know" is a musical quilt of origi-
nal and carefully selected compo-
sitions that fully deserve "the
Rush treatment." Rush's voice
and phrasing are what make
every song he sings his own. He
writes or selects songs shorn of
elaborate metaphors, choosing
graceful, evocative, straightfor-
ward emotional settings. Then his
warm baritone, tanned by experi-
ence, humor and melancholy,
shines right through the lyrics, il-
luminating them from within.
Produced in Nashville by long-
time Cambridge friend and musi-
cian Jim Rooney and his subtle
crew of country-folk musicians,
'What I Know" contains five Rush
originals, his arrangement of the
traditional "Casey Jones" with
guest vocalist Nanci Griffith and
nine renditions of mostly unfa-
miliar songs that become instant
friends. Rush's compositions
range from toe-tappers to the
wearily peaceful "River Song"
(with Robin Batteau on violin).
Tracks include "Hot Tonight,"
with guest Bonnie Bramlett on
harmony vocals, "Silly Little Did-
dle," "One Good Man" and the
exuberant title song. There also
are gorgeously regret-filled songs
such as Steven Bruton's "Too
Many Memories," with Emmylou
Harris on harmony, A.J.
Swearingen's "You're Not Here
with Me," Jamaican singer Mish-

ficer of the British Empire in the
year 2000, which was bestowed
upon her by Queen Elizabeth II
at Buckingham Palace, Seymour
has proven her talents in virtually
all media, the Broadway stage,
motion pictures and television.
Her love of art and color has led
to her great success as a painter
in watercolors and oils and as a
designer.


Seymour's past films include
the James Bond movie "Live and
Let Die," the cult classic "Some-
where in Time" and the comedy
smash "Wedding Crashers." Her
television credits include the
Emmy Award winning perform-

Man in the World" as Maria
Callas, "East of Eden" for which
she was awarded a Golden Globe,
the mini-series "War and Remem-

winning role as Dr. Quinn on "Dr.
Quinn Medicine Woman" which
ran for six seasons.
In addition to acting, Seymour
has written more than 10 books
including "Among Angels," "Open
Hearts," "Making Yourself At
Home," "Remarkable Changes"
and 'This One 'N That One," a se-
ries of children's books written
with her husband James Keach
which is now being made into an
animated television series from
their production company PCH

ka's "Lonely," the wonderfully
tender "What an Old Lover
Knows," by Melanie Dyer and
Kim Beard Day, and a velvety
song of seduction "Fall into the
Night" by Eliza Gilkyson.
"East of Eden," co-written by
Jack Tempchin, doubles as a
frustrated love song and a com-
mentary on U.S. immigration
policies.
The best-known song covered
is a reflective take on Mentor
Williams' "Drift Away," a hit for
Dobie Gray, Rod Stewart and un-
countable others.
Rush the man with the gold-
en ear, the comforting voice, the
supple guitar and the crafts-
man's pen has given fans a gift
worth waiting for. James Taylor,
Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and
Garth Brooks have cited Rush as
a major influence.
Now, Rush is on the road
again. Rush not only knows how
to write, choose and sing a song
- he knows how to make an au-
dience believe every word he
sings, and how to make every-
where feel like home. Tampa Bay
audiences will have an opportu-
nity to see him perform at Largo
Cultural Center Jan. 11.


Tom Rush performs Jan. 11 at the Largo Cultural Center.
