Citizens offer input
on budget
Pinellas County commissioners
got an earful during recent public
meetings asking for input on ways
to trim $60 million from the fiscal
year 2011 budget.
Some citizens think money
could be saved by eliminating de-
partments such as cultural affairs
and economic development.

LARGO City commissioners are getting an
earful from people passionate about the South-
west Pool. Some have called it "a godsend."
Closing the Southwest Pool was one of many
options under consideration by city officials to
balance the budget for the next fiscal year. How-
ever, at the beginning of a pubic forum March 29
on the budget, City Manager Mac Craig said that
"there is no plan to do that."
'The Southwest Pool is not going to be closed,"
Craig said, receiving applause from a crowd at the
Largo Library.
City officials heard from coaches, athletes and
casual swimmers. Many residents asked city offi-
cials also not to close the pool from December to
February, which is an option projected to save


By WAYNE AYERS

LARGO Long known for its out-
standing public parks, Pinellas
County has added another jewel to
its crown with the opening of Eagle
Lake Park in Largo.
The park land was acquired from
the Taylor family, early pioneers in
the county, and had been used in the
past for cattle grazing and citrus
groves. Publicity on the park de-
scribes it as "a slice of natural tran-
quility in the midst of urban life."
A crowd of well-wishers was on
hand Tuesday morning as County
Commission Chair Karen Williams
Seel "cut the vine" to officially open
the park. Seel praised the park's nat-
ural beauty and noted its heritage.
Recognizing members of the pioneer
Taylor, Hancock and Carter families
who had been involved with the prop-
erty, Seel said, "I know (the citizens)
will love it just as much as they did."
Foxes, gopher tortoises and nu-
merous species of birds inhabit the
area, Seel said, and remains of the
original citrus groves can still be
spotted. To emphasize the point,
complimentary grapefruit grown on

champions, state champions,
national masters champions, divers
and synchro swimmers on full-ride
college scholarships."

money. They said the pool was invaluable for
treating arthritis and other ailments and main-
taining their exercise routines.
Bill Walker of St. Petersburg, a former team
leader for the U.S. National Diving Team, said he
"wants to make sure everybody understands the
treasure you have."


the property were passed out follow-
ing the ceremony.
Amenities are plentiful on the 163-
acre site, which is at 1800 Keene
Road. They include 2,000 feet of
boardwalks over wetlands, a paved
recreation trail, dog park, playground,
and six picnic shelters. Funds for the
$8 million investment in park im-
provements came primarily from the
Penny for Pinellas sales tax.
Paul Cozzie, the county's director
of culture, education and leisure, ex-
plained afterwards how the county
could afford to operate the new park
in the face of deep budget cuts.
Deficits the past two years have
forced the county to abandon the old
model of having staff at every park,
"and to rethink the way we do busi-
ness," Cozzie said
Nowadays, he said, work crews ro-
tate among several parks. "That cre-
ates more efficiency and allows us to
take care of basic services even in the
face of budget cuts," he said.
Also, Cozzie said the county is rely-
ing more on volunteers to do jobs
such as picking up litter and assist-
ing with maintenance. The volunteer
staff "is integral to keeping our parks


The problem is, the pool is underutilized, and
marketing efforts could be more aggressive, he
said.
Walker and others suggested that the city form
a task force to examine the pool. He said if it is
composed of people with a cross-section of skills
and interests "we can find a way to take care of
your financial problems."
He said that the Chinese National Diving Team
had agreed to come to the United States several
years ago for a meet. At that time he was vice
president of USA Diving.
"I said bring them to Largo. This is a great
pool," he said.
The meet was held in Largo and was televised
by NBC, Walker said.

attractive," he said.
Citizens on hand for the grand
opening appeared delighted with the
park's natural features, and saw little
problem with the budget issues.
George Bremer of Largo said he
was impressed with how the park
"keeps nature as it was." He said the
amenities should appeal to people of
all ages who want to go out and enjoy
nature.
"It's a great use of tax money," Bre-
mer added.
Heath Watson of Largo said his
family is excited "to have a really nice
park that emphasizes nature." An-

ward to visiting the playground, while
Mila, their black lab, tries out the dog
park. Andrea said park visitors
should bring their bikes if they want
to see everything in less than a half
day.
Liza Carter grew up on the proper-
ty that her grandmother Marian
Ulmer Taylor homesteaded. She
termed the new park "stunning, just
beautiful."
"It was a lovely place to grow up,"
she said, "and it's wonderful how
they've left it so natural."

Correction
At the Largo City Commission's March 23 meeting, Com-

tain recreation programs be raised rather than
membership fees increased. An article in the March 25 edi-

The name of Dr. Karen Kritsky, medical director of the
Florida Breast Institute at Largo Medical Center, was mis-
spelled in an article she wrote for the Just 4 Women sec-
tion, which was inserted in the March 25 edition of the
newspaper.

"We Changed Her Life" An actual testimonial from one of our patients...
Dr. Mountcastle,
Thank you for the wonderful job you did for me!
As you know, I had been suffering with severe throbbing, aches, and pains in my right leg for over two years.
Sleeping at night was nearly impossible, due to the involuntary leg movements that occurred most nights. This caused
me to have problems at work and in everyday life. All of this continued despite all my efforts to get relief (legs up on
pillows, massages, Potassium pills, drinking lots of water, support hose, many different types of shoes, and leg
exercises at least twice a day). Long stretches of sitting, especially in a car or on a plane, caused excruciating pain.
I had seen several doctors with no relief.
I prayed every night that I would get some relief and be able to sleep. Rarely did I have such luck. Diagnosed
with "restless leg syndrome" and given medication for it, I got little to no relief.
Convinced this was how I would have to spend the rest of my life, I saw an ad for Dr. Mountcastle. I had no idea
this would be the best phone call I ever made.
I made an appointment. At that meeting an ultrasound was performed which revealed an "insufficient saphenous
vein." The vein was repaired in one session. After taking a "relaxation pill," the procedure was performed in his
center. The recovery was very rapid, with little to no pain. I was back to full duty at my Physical Therapy job the
next day with no restrictions.
Thanks again Dr. Mountcastle, you have changed my life! -

City moves on fire station property
LARGO City officials expect to start the construction of
a fire station off Indian Rocks Road in October.
As soon as that station is completed, the city plans to
close Station 43 in Belleair Bluffs, said Largo Fire Chief
Michael Wallace, at the City Commission's March 23
meeting.
He expects to have an agreement prepared for architec-
tural work and purchase of the property in 30 days. The
land is just north of the Largo Medical Center campus be-
tween Indian Rocks Road and Georgianna Street.
City officials have said they expect to use $600,000 in
sales tax funds this year for the purchase of the property
The station would replace existing Station 39, which is
located off 134th Avenue.

Soroptimists continue
to combat human trafficking
LARGO The Largo Mid-Pinellas Soroptimist Interna-
tional organization's community campaign against
human trafficking now has 93 members who are ad-
dressing the issue on a variety of fronts.
The campaign's focus areas includes bringing an
awareness to the community with a clear and consistent
message; providing the best and most effective service to
victims and providing funds to support such measures.
"We have since seen the need for much more stringent
legislation and have added that as our fourth focus
area," said June Wallace, a facilitator in the campaign
and a Soroptimist member, in an e-mail.
The legislative focus group will determine what addi-
tional legislation is required, obtain assistance in writing
and submit legislation for lobbying and passage. It also
will hold lobbying events to speed up the appropriation of
funding for victim services.
Other groups are:


The community awareness focus group, which helps
distribute resources information such as bookmarks,
pamphlets and is involved in community presentations.
The victim services focus group appropriates protec-
tive shelters and services, including medical, psychologi-
cal and spiritual care critical for the protection and
restoration of both adult and child sex trafficking vic-
tims.
Fundraising/awareness events focus groups will
hosts events and seek funding to meet immediate critical
victim needs and help stop the demand for prostitution
by encouraging participation in various programs.
In April 2009, Wallace attended a Soroptimist confer-
ence in Huntsville, Ala., at which Linda Smith received
the Soroptimist "Woman Making A Difference" Award.
The South Florida Soroptimists had funded a "House of
Hope" for Shared Hope International in Jamaica. As a re-
sult of the research and at the prompting of Linda Smith,
the club found the need to build a coalition around Dade
and Broward counties to fight local child sex trafficking.
"After meeting Linda at the awards ceremony, it
seemed that there was a similar need in the Tampa Bay
area," Wallace said.
The club created a human trafficking awareness book-
mark. Police Chief Lester Aradi agreed to let the club use
the department's training room to investigate the possi-
bility of forming a coalition. Thirty-five community polic-
ing, faith-based organizations and others interested
attended and established an agenda.

City conducts survey on trails plan
LARGO The city is conducting a survey for the pro-
posed urban trails master plan. When complete, the
urban trails master plan will include a citywide urban
trail network that will provide bicycle and pedestrian ac-
cess from neighborhoods to local parks, the Pinellas Trail,
shopping centers, schools, and transit stops.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:

Your Gums Could Make You Sick
Would you be surprised to find out that bacteria in your mouth could lead to a
stroke? Increase your risk for pancreatic cancer? Worsen the symptoms of your
diabetes? But it is true, and all kinds of research offer evidence to support this
information.
Studies published in the New 'of Medicine and the Journal of
S report that the inflammatory effects from periodontal disease can
cause bacterial byproducts to enter the
bloodstream and trigger the liver to make
proteins such as C-reactive protein.
This protein is one of the main markers in all
kinds of systemic inflammation, inflammation
that can increase the risk of blood clots and,
according to a new study from Harvard,
pancreatic cancer. The Harvard study shows
t that men with gum disease were 63 percent
onlmore likely to develop pancreatic cancer when
compared to those with no periodontal
What's more, this bacterial infection has
been linked to serious health problems for
pregnant women, leading to premature and low
birth weight babies.
Periodontal disease, not tooth decay is also the leading cause of tooth loss, and a
lack of teeth is bad for your overall health as well. Studies have been done that show
those who lose their teeth have higher medical expenses and fewer years of life. Not
only can missing teeth be i .... .ll difficult to cope with, creating a lack of
confidence and an is i to smile, it can lead to nutritional deficiencies and
'IWhy risk your heh e people have some level of periodontal or gum

Here at About Smiles Dental, we care deeply about your whole health. That is why
we do so much more than treat problems as they arise. We think in terms of
prevention and use advanced training any technology to diagnose and treat periodontal
disease before it becomes a major threat to your health.
Since graduating from the University of Maryland Dental School in 1981, Dr.
Panzarella has been using a variety of new technologies to make the non-surgical
treatment of this disease more i..ei.. dI. and much less painful than ever before. In
short, this disease is treatable, even at an advanced stage, to help you keep your teeth
and improve your health.

POOL, from page 1


"I don't know how many assets you have in
the city that can do that for you," he said, "but
you do have one."
City officials also have received several e-
mails about the possibility of the pool being
closed.
Sherwood Watts, competitive director for the
Sarasota YMCA Sharks Swim Team, wrote that
her team attends meets three or four times per
year at the pool, bringing 100 to 150 swimmers
and their families.
"Seventy-five families staying two nights at
$79 per night is well over $10,000 not to men-
tion the income on food," she wrote. "Please re-
consider and keep the pool open for the obvious
income and even more important" for the kids.
Anders Bastman, a competitive swimmer and
city resident, wrote that other cities have faced
budget cuts but managed to market their facili-
ties to bridge the gap between revenues and ex-
penses.
"Southwest has produced Olympic champi-
ons, state champions, national masters champi-
ons, divers and synchro swimmers on full-ride
college scholarships. Is it possible that the
dreams that Southwest has fulfilled will evapo-
rate for future Largo kids?" Bastman wrote.
The city's total cost of running the pool for
the current fiscal year, including personnel and
operating costs, is $327,000. City officials say
the pool needs to be resurfaced in the next sev-
eral years to maintain operation. The estimated
cost of the work is $500,000.
The Olympic-sized pool is the home training
facility for several swimming and diving pro-
grams. It is part of the Southwest Complex,

Several residents concerned about budget
cuts praised the benefits of a variety of pro-
grams offered to children at the city's recreation
centers, the Cultural Center and at the ball
fields.
Dottie Mazzucco, president of the Greater
Largo Little League, said her organization is cel-
ebrating its 50th anniversary this year. She
praised the parks and recreation department.
'We have the nicest Little League facilities in
Pinellas County," she said.
She said Little League is valuable because it
holds youths accountable; they can't play base-
ball if their grades are bad.
Last summer, city staff had recommended
that the City Commission consider closing the
Largo Nature Preserve and Bonner Park to meet
budget needs. That raised the ire of many resi-
dents who use the parks, particularly residents
who live near Bonner Park, and commissioners
decided to leave the parks open.
One resident asked city officials at the March
29 meeting to consider closing Bonner Park,
saying it was underutilized. But in a recent
commission budget discussion, that idea was
frowned upon.
City officials are seeking ways to reduce the
budget by $3.5 million for the next fiscal year,
such as increasing a variety of users' fees for
recreation programs. They also expect to freeze
salaries and eliminate positions. They also are
considering reducing the library's operating
hours.
The City Commission's final action on the
budget and millage rate for the next fiscal year
will be done in conjunction with two public
hearings in September.

large red and black bill is knife-thin and the lower mandible is longer than the upper. The
bird drags the lower bill through the water as it flies along, hoping to catch small fish.

Alcohol sales to minors
target of investigation
LARGO Officers from the Largo Police De-
partment's Special Operations Unit and Prob-


lem Oriented Policing Unit March 25 joined
forces in an effort to increase compliance with
alcohol sales in the city.
The officers, using an underage person, at-
tempted to purchase alcohol from businesses in
the city. In total, 10 businesses were visited. Six
of the 10 sold alcohol to the underage person.
The six businesses which sold alcohol to the
underage person were: Winghouse at 7369 Ul-
merton Road; Circle K at 14111 Belcher Road;
PK's Food Store, at 3200 East Bay Drive; Hess,
at 2930 East Bay Drive; Banana Boat, at 5858
Roosevelt Blvd.; and Play Pen, at 5858 Roo-
sevelt Blvd, police said.
The person, from each of the businesses,
who sold to the underage person was given a
misdemeanor notice to appear.
With spring break coming soon, additional ef-
forts will be undertaken to ensure compliance
and promote awareness to prevent the sale of
alcohol to under age persons, police said.

Man arrested following chase
REDINGTON SHORES A 49-year-old St.
Petersburg man was arrested on five charges
March 9 following a 15-minute pursuit by In-
dian Shores police officers.
It all started about 2:30 p.m. when Moses


Spells Jr., of 2320 17th Ave. S., was pulled
over in his 1994 F-150 pickup truck in the
17700 block of Gulf Boulevard for not wearing
a seat belt. Two other passengers in the truck
were also not wearing seatbelts.
As an officer explained the charge to Spells,
he hit the accelerator and sped off northbound
to Park Boulevard, east to Seminole Boulevard
and south to Bay Pines Boulevard through
neighborhoods and busy streets. He was final-
ly cornered at Park Street and Bay Pines
Boulevard.
Spells initially said he had no idea why he
took off. But police later discovered why. Spells
had an invalid driver's license and was driving
an unregistered vehicle.
He was charged with fleeing from a law en-
forcement officer, resisting an officer without
violence, driving with a suspended or revoked
license, operating an unregistered vehicle, and
violation of probation on a previous charge of
petty theft.
Total bond was set at $5,900.

Clearwater man crashes
vehicle into deputy's cruiser
ST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County sher-
iffs deputies are investigating a deputy-in-


volved vehicle crash that happened Wednes-
day, March 17, 1:44 p.m., at 54th Avenue and
49th Street N.
According to a sheriffs report, Deputy Gary
Breest was stopped on 54th Avenue at the red
light heading west behind several cars near
the intersection of 49th Street N. He was in the
curb lane. The report said Bryan Fondrick, 43,
of Clearwater was traveling west on 54th Av-
enue in his 2005 Chevrolet Astro Van in the
curb lane approaching the intersection of 49th
Street N. when he struck the deputy's vehicle
in the rear.
There were minor damages and no injuries.
However, after being evaluated by paramedics
at the scene, Fondrick was taken to Northside
Hospital and Heart Institute for further evalua-
tion.

A disturbing dilemma


Public Defender Bob Dillinger recently
proclaimed that prescription drug abuse in
Pinellas County ascended by a disquieting
500 percent since 2005. Addiction to opioid
painkillers such as oxycodone, sedatives
and tranquilizers and other narcotics that
are sold on the streets or prescribed by legit-
imate doctors and clinics is out of control.
This state of affairs needs to be harnessed
before it worsens.
Prescription pills are distinctive in that
the problem crosses all economic, racial, so-
cial and age barriers. Today's abuser is be-
tween 18 and 30, but there also are pill
enthusiasts in our schools, workplaces and
in corporate executive suites.
The statistics paint a terrifying picture.
The newly-formed Pinellas County chap-
ter of Narcotics Overdose Prevention and
Education, or NOPE, reports that 80 per-
cent of our high school students and 44 per-
cent of our middle school pupils are exposed
to narcotics. And if that doesn't open your
eyes to this social cancer, consider that
seven people died in just one local commu-
nity, Pinellas Park, since March 1, 2010.
Two of them were a father and his adult
daughter.


We applaud NOPE and Dillinger for ex-
posing the prescription drug abuse problem
in Pinellas County for what it is ... a dan-
gerous, life-threatening epidemic that needs
to be addressed. We recommend the follow-
ing:
A special Pinellas County grand jury, sim-
ilar to one seated last year in Broward
County, should investigate the prescription
pill dilemma to generate a sound battle plan
against shady doctors, pharmacies and clin-
ics that distribute the mind-bending nar-
cotics to innocent people of all ages.
Our state legislators need to pass even
stronger laws to give law enforcement the
tools to deal with so-called "pill mills."
State legislators also need to pay attention
to organizations such as NOPE and people
like Dillinger and others who seem to be
fighting a losing battle simply because no
one who can help resolve this quandary is
listening.
We must, like it or not, brace ourselves for
even greater social and criminal challenges
if the proliferation of prescription drugs is
allowed to so greatly influence our society.
Or we can meet the epidemic head-on and
fight back.


How do you love an alcoholic?


How do you love an alco-
holic? Especially when you
have every opportunity to
walk away.
She pushes me away be-
cause she thinks it would be
easier. Fewer people to hurt.
Fewer relationships to ruin.
But she enchanted me from
the start and I can't let her go.
Not when she so badly
needs a friend.
And friendship is my forte.
She's not part of my "real"
family, but sometimes love is
even stronger for members of
my self-made family. Perhaps
the answers would be easier,
though, if she was part of my
"real" family. 'You can't aban-
don family," and "Family is
forever," but others? Some-
how they're expected to be
more disposable. No one un-
derstands why I can not ac-
cept this.
There have been warning
signs from the start that I
wanted to ignore.
I don't think she knows I
know about her problem, but
then, I don't know if she
knows herself. I know she
worries about it. She drops
hints and sad little com-
ments. Like on a completely
happy night, a cloud passed
over her face as she said, "I'm
happy. And yet, I'll probably
still drink too much tonight."
On one of the first times we
got together, she casually said
that her mother thinks she's
an alcoholic as she poured
herself another appletini.
On the day of my belly
dance show, I asked her how
long she'd stick around after-
ward. She replied, "Oh, I have

Pull together or hang together
Editor:
The Russians said back in the 1960s that
we don't need to defeat the west; they will de-
feat themselves. A rope has two ends, one to
pull you out of trouble, the other end to hang
yourself. Choose wisely my friend.
Well, Florida, it's time to choose. Either we
pull ourselves out of the hole we're in, literally,
or we hang ourselves. This boat can float for
only so long before those that can't or won't
pull us under water. In a past America in the
1950s and 1960s, there was a certain bal-
ance. Now it's either top feeders or bottom
feeders and not just financial, but in all areas
of life.
Either we all work for the state or the state


works for us, period. With all the fees, licens-
es, laws, codes, fines, taxes, penalties, etc. Are
you kidding me?
Imagine every time you wanted to drive
your car, you had first to go to the Depart-
ment of Motor Vehicles for that one day take
and pass the written, eye, driving test? Then
they unlock your computer so you can start
your car and drive. How long would that last?
Traffic would be sparse, great; everyone's in
line at the DMV.
The governor, big brother, the institution,
etc. will make you live the way it sees fit. Trust
me, either we pull together or we will hang to-
gether! Yes, I'm mad.

Movies, then and now


I fell in love with movies
when I was 8 years old. It
happened in my home town,
Tunkhannock, Pa., at the Di-
etrich Theater.
That movie house was also
the first time I experienced
air-conditioning. The theater
was dark, cool and safe.
Across the screen trooped
hundreds of cops, robbers,
cowboys, beautiful women,
loathsome villains, and
scenes of faraway cities and
lands.
Movies were magic to me,
and have remained so. After
having watched thousands of
films, I wish I could pretend
to be a movie expert. But I
can't. I'm just an enjoyer.
The film industry has un-
dergone enormous changes.
Perhaps the biggest was the
coming of the talkies. That in-
vention cost the careers of
many silent-film actors,
whose voices were too nasal,
whiny, dull or garbled to fall
easily on the ears of movie
viewers.
Technicolor added much-
needed brightness to film-
making, although many
people feel that the films of
the black-and-white era had a
charm and quality all their
own.
One way to gauge both the
release year and the quality of
an old film is to count the
number of cigarettes puffed
on during the movie. The
more cigarettes, the more
likely the movie was made be-
fore the 1960s, when anti-
smoking forces began to exert
their influence. Constant
smoking was also an indica-
tor of a half-baked director,
desperate to have his or her
characters do something,
anything, besides recite the
dialogue. Smoking was also
used to imply worldliness in
women and toughness in
men. American films have
been the biggest friend the to-


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


bacco industry has ever
known, at least until recent
years.
A corresponding linguistic
staple of modern film-makers
is the F word. Without its use,
most of today's action movies
would not see the light of day.
In contrast, think back, if you
would, to the films of Jimmy
Cagney, Edward G. Robinson,
Humphrey Bogart. John
Wayne, Richard Widmark, Lee
Marvin, Jack Palance, Steve
McQueen and other cinematic
meanies. How many times did
they use the F word or other
extreme profanities? Answer:
hardly ever. But somehow
they came across as just as
tough as today's bad boys.
Beyond a certain point, use
of the F word is a sure sign of
lazy directing, acting and
screenwriting.
Watching old movies, it's
fun to see the transformation
of telephones. In the '20s and
'30s, many phones were the
vertical, stand-up kind with
the earpiece hooked on the
side. This gave way to unified
mouthpiece-receiver phones
with a circular dial. In the
1960s, this changed to the
touch-tone models that you
could punch up in a hurry.
Movie directors loved that,
because it allowed the
movie's action to move along
more quickly.
In the 1980s and 1990s,
wireless phones began to ap-
pear. The first ones were
clunky, weighing five pounds
or more. Each year brought
smaller, zippier phones.
Today, cellphones dominate
films. If Hollywood did a re-
make of The Hunchback of
Notre Dame, he'd be jabber-


ing into a cellphone as he
swung through the bell
tower.
Two other "must" compo-
nents dominate most of
today's films. One is comput-
ers. Fifty years ago, if a plot
twist posed a major obstacle
or frustration to the actors,
they'd have to sit down and
noodle out a solution. Not
today. All the good guys need
do is punch up the comput-
ers, and everything becomes
clear. The computer is the
all-purpose answer to the
question, "How do we fix this
script so that it moves for-
ward and makes sense to the
audience?"
The second ever-ready, all-
purpose gimmick used by
today's directors and screen-
writers is the explosion, usu-
ally fueled by gasoline. If the
Second Coming of Christ
were to be portrayed by
today's Hollywood, we'd see
Satan and his top angels dri-
ven off a cliff on the edge of
Mt. Sinai into a fiery valley
lined with sixty exploding
Exxon tank trunks, each one
set off by a Christian saint or
one of the apostles.
Movie formats are chang-
ing faster than ever. In the
1980s, taped films came on
the scene. Home ownership
of a VCR became obligatory.
Within a few years, DVD's
took over. A disk weighing an
ounce now provides hours of
movie entertainment. Soon,
perhaps even the disks will
be outmoded, as technology
shows us how to download
thousands of films from our
computers directly into our
home TV sets and entertain-
ment centers.
I never envisioned such a
world as I watched Hopalong
Cassidy chase the bad guys,
back in the 1930s. But I'm
glad I lived to see it happen.

Public weighs in

This is the second of a three-part series on the public's partici-
pation in Pinellas County's budget process.
By SUZETTE PORTER

Pinellas County commissioners got an earful during recent
public meetings asking for input on ways to trim $60 million
from the fiscal year 2011 budget.
Suggestions and comments have been received from hun-
dreds of people in a variety of ways, including in-person sessions
at three public meetings, via the Internet at the eTownHall meet-
ing, through e-mail, by phone and regular mail.
People who attended public budget meetings in Palm Harbor,
Seminole and St. Petersburg were asked to fill out question-
naires that asked them to identify priority and low priority bud-
get areas, ways to save money and ways to generate additional
revenue.
The public offered a variety of cost-savings ideas, including
several that addressed parks and leisure services. Among the
suggestions were closing popular parks on Monday and Tuesday
and totally closing "low-performing" or neighborhood parks in-
definitely. At least one person also suggested closing Heritage
Village, Brooker Creek and Weedon Island indefinitely. At least
two more suggested forgoing the opening of new parks, includ-
ing Eagle Lake Park in Largo, the 163-acre Eagle Lake Park at
1800 Keene Road that is scheduled to open on March 30.
Some citizens think money could be saved by eliminating de-
partments such as cultural affairs and economic development.
Others think consolidation is the answer although they caution
against spending money on renovations.
Several responses said the sheriff should be required to re-
duce his budget, which amounts to almost 55 percent of the
general fund. Others suggested moving consumer and justice
services, emergency management and emergency communica-
tions to local law enforcement. Another suggestion involved con-
solidation of the separate attorney offices for the county and the
sheriffs office.
Ideas on controlling employee costs include reducing the
number of middle management employees, moving to a four-day
workweek, furloughs, streamlining jobs, changes in benefit pro-
grams and reduction of salaries countywide, especially those
who make more than $100,000. Reimbursement for uniform


French bakery gets

new lease on life

By HARLAN WEIKLE

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH Xavier de Marchi returned from
Paris March 20, with a new two-year business visa in hand.
"I am so grateful to our friends, we are just a small business
you know but with so many friends, it's wonderful," he said.
De Marchi's first thoughts upon returning to the Cafe de
Paris, the business he and his wife, Valerie, have owned in In-
dian Rocks Beach since 2003, were of the more than 4,000
signatures on a petition by friends and customers who sup-
ported the de Marchis in their effort to appeal a decision by the
U.S. State Department to revoke their business visa.
U.S. Embassy officials in Paris last December denied the de
Marchis a renewal of a five-year business visa to, as French
citizens, own and operate a business in the United States. The
denial stunned the business partners and sparked a flurry of
interest resulting in the petition drive and an effort by a group
of friends to keep the bakery open while the family appealed
the denial.
Earlier this month the de Marchis with their son, Luigi, aju-
nior at Seminole High School, flew to France not knowing if
they would be allowed to return to their home in Largo and the
business that is their livelihood.
The de Marchis hired a new lawyer, William Flynn of Tampa
following the embassy's decision that the bakery was a "mar-
ginal" business; that it made too small an impact on the local
economy. De Marchi said that this time, "thanks to a great job
by our lawyer, we had a complete file that showed how much
profit was made last year."
"We make a decent living. We pay an employee and put
aside some money to expand the business," de Marchi said.
The de Marchis met with an embassy official March 11 and
the meeting was cordial, the baker said.
They gave us a two-year visa this time, so we will have to
reapply again in 24 months," de Marchi said, adding, "so I will
be keeping the same lawyer until then."
Valerie de Marchi did not return home with her husband
and son; she stayed on in France for medical reasons and is
expected to return next week.
"Some times like these are a shock on life and that is when
illness can happen," de Marchi said.
Their son, he reports, "Is happy to be back home."

Loved ones suffer due to prescription drugs


Editor's Note: This is the final of a two-part
series about the problem of prescription drug
abuse.

By THOMAS MICHALSKI

Many people arrested in Pinellas County for
crimes such as robberies, burglaries and
shoplifting are dependent upon prescription
drugs.
In the majority of cases involving retail theft
at major clothing and hardware outlets, police
say, thieves usually have one type of con-
trolled substance or another in their posses-
sion. They steal to buy pain killers and other
illicit drugs that have replaced heroin, crack
cocaine and other street drugs that were pop-
ular in past years.
Bob Dillinger, public defender for the 6th


Judicial Circuit, earlier this month rated it at
"epidemic proportions." He said pain killing
drugs are killing people in an "unmitagating
fashion."
Laurie Serra of Clearwater is the Pinellas
County coordinator for a newly-formed splin-
ter group called NOPE, or Narcotics Overdose
Prevention and Education. Nationally, it has
chapters in many states with members rang-
ing from concerned citizens to the families of
drug overdose victims.
Serra, of Clearwater, lost her stepson,
Matthew, to prescription drugs. His habit
began when the 28-year-old injured his back
as a Seminole High School student.
"Prescription drug abuse has become a part
of the fabric of our society," Serra said. "It is a
psychological and physical addiction that cre-
ates life-long addicts and insurmountable


problems for loved ones."
According to NOPE, a startling 80 percent of
high schoolers and 44 percent of middle
schoolers are exposed to drugs. Overdose
deaths from prescription medications 24,000
of them in the U.S. alone are second only to
car crashes when it comes to unintentional
deaths.
Consider these facts:
Every day 2,500 teenagers in the United
States try prescription drugs for the first time.
45 percent of those who tried the drugs
before the age of 15 will become addicted.
More than 29 percent of U.S. teenagers in
rehabilitation centers are dependent on tran-
quilizers, sedatives, amphetamines and other
prescription drugs.
There are more abusers between the ages
of 12 and 17 of prescription drugs than there
are of marijuana.
"People need to realize the seriousness of


the prescription drug problem in Pinellas
County," Serra said. 'There are no stereotype
addicts. It's wealthy kids, poor kids, all kinds
of kids ... and adults."
The average prescription drug abuser just a
decade ago was a white, middle class male
from ages 30 to 50. Today the average age of a
prescription drug abuser is between 18 and
25, but middle school and even elementary
students are not to be discounted.
Serra said drug abuse doesn't only affect
the abuser, but also their friends and families
as well. Prescription drugs, she said, ruins
lives, increases criminal activity, accelerates
treatment and medical costs and contributes
to medical fraud.
Serra, like many others involved in the bat-
tle against drug abuse, has high hopes for the
Prescription Drug Monitoring Program or

Did Christ really, Rise from the Dead?
There are many people, even religious people, who are confused about what Easter is all
about. Many do not believe Christ really rose from the dead. In finding out the truth
about this, we first need to study the facts about the Bible, to see what credibility the
Bible really has. Years ago, I found out there is unending proof, proving that the
Christian Holy Bible is in fact the Word of the living God. I am constantly finding new
evidence, proving this.
1. The Bible is unique, it's the one and only, having no like equal. The Bible was
written over a 1500 year span. It was written over forty generations, by over forty
different authors from every walk of life.
2. The Bible has been proven by numerous, specific, documented Archaeological
discoveries.
3. The reliability of the Bible is confirmed by historical text.
4. The Bible is full of countless, historic and geographic prophecies.
The list goes on and on Hundreds of books have been written about the accuracy and the reliability
of the Bible. Any intelligent person who is seeking truth would certainly read and
consider a book that has the historical qualifications of the Bible. These unique
qualifications separate the Scriptures from any book that has ever been written.

It's a fact, Jesus is the greatest person who ever lived. No one has ever influenced this
world more than Jesus Christ. Every year we are reminded of His birth at Christmas.
Every year we are reminded of his suffering, death, burial, and resurrection at Easter.
The turning point in history is labeled B.C. (before Christ) and A.D. (the year of our
Lord). Jesus did all the miracles spoken of in the Bible and His rising from the dead
proved that he is God. The Bible tells us after His resurrection He appeared to 500
people at one time and many others. Also all the disciples saw Him and died martyred
deaths. Think about this: would Jesus' disciples have gotten together, made up a lie, and
then died for that lie? Common sense tells us they wouldn't have. They saw Him many
times after His resurrection and died witnessing for Him.

The Bible makes it clear that all people are sinners and need to receive Christ as their
Savior to be forgiven for their sins. There are no exceptions. This is the greatest decision
a person will ever make! At this time I am going to explain how you can receive Jesus
as your Savior.

* First you need to realize you are a sinner (Romans 3:23) and if you remain in your sin
condition, when you die you will end up in a place called Hell (Romans 6:23; Rev.
20:11,12,15).
* Next, you need to realize only Jesus Christ can save you (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) and it
is by grace through faith and is a free gift (Eph. 2:8,9).
Also realize Christ suffered and died on the cross, was buried and rose from the dead
for your sins (1 Cor. 15:1-4).
* Then you need to pray to God from your heart and tell Him that you are sorry for your
sins and ask Him to forgive you and to save you (Romans 10:9,10,13). If you are
really sorry for your sins, you will have a change of mind and attitude about sin, that
will cause you to turn from them (2 Cor 7:9,10). If you say this prayer from your heart
and really mean it, you will become born again and your life will totally change. You
will now have new interests and desires in God, and the things of God, that will
become the most important things in your life (2 Cor. 5:17).

Another Easter is coming and the question is, What are you going to do with Jesus, the
one who suffered, shed His Blood, and died on the cross for our sins?
This is the greatest decision you will ever make! If you have any questions or would
like more information about this, please feel free to call. Everyone is invited to our
Special Easter Sunday Service at 11a.m. where we will be celebrating the Resurrection
of Christ!

DRUGS, from page 8
PDMP. Approved last year by Tallahassee
lawmakers, it will be rolled out in De-
cember.
But, even though it took years to get
through the Florida Legislature, politi-
cians hobbled the program by
not funding it. Money will instead
come from federal grants, indi-
vidual and corporate donations
and from other non-government
areas.
It does have some teeth and
can do much to stem the pre-
scription drug problem. Provi-
sions mandate a "patient
advisory report" for physicians to Lauri
alert PDMP of doctor shopping. It
allows participating doctors to request
prescription information about patients.
Most important is that it creates the pre-
scription drug use database that already
has been successful in more than 30
states.
California, which has a prescription
database in place, just this month con-
victed a Los Angeles physician of 13
felony counts of unlawfully prescribing
controlled substances. The doctor was
described by the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration as the second "most pro-


e


lific provider" of prescriptions, second
only to Johns Hopkins university in Bal-
timore, Md.
The DEA said without California's
monitoring system authorities would
never have known about the doctor's il-
licit enterprises.
Overcoming pain killer
abuse is not easy. It comes
with mind bending with-
drawals, physical problems
such as the "shakes" and
unbearable pain.
The two major prescrip-
tion drugs that are abused
is oxycodone, also sold as
percocet and oxycontin.
Serra The second is methadone
that once was solely used
to treat heroin and other street drug ad-
dicts. Now it's available to treat chronic
pain.
Oxycodone is an opioid, meaning that
it comes from opium which is used for
the manufacture of such drugs as mor-
phine, codeine and thebaine. Oxycodone
affects the brain and spine cord to re-
duce pain, but it also creates a high. Its
side effects include respiratory prob-
lems, depression, constipation and ad-
diction.
Oxycodone was once known as "Hill-


billy Crack" because of the many Ken-
tucky residents who drove to Florida
with fake injuries and identifications to
get pills from unsavory pain clinics and
doctors.
'There are many ways to get prescrip-
tion drugs," Serra said. "Unfortunately,
it is not all that difficult."
With the proliferation of so called "pill
mills," it is easier than ever before to buy
the drugs. On the street oxycodone can
be purchased for between $1 and $30 a
pill. But pain clinics play a major distri-
bution role, too.
Doctors at some pain clinics dispense
drugs directly to patients after what law
enforcement calls "the dance." The steps
include patients faking physical prob-
lems, non-existent pain and even pro-
ducing faux or altered MRIs. The doctor
for a fee prescribes a 30-day "cocktail" of
roxicodone (which really are oxycodone),
percocet, soma, xanax and other med-
ications.
The doctors and clinics deal only in
cash. To accept medical insurance
would place them under the jurisdiction
of the Florida Department of Health or
states Department of Medicine.
The Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration oversees only the clinics that ac-
cept insurance.

la Gallery at the Clearwater Main Library, 100 N. Osceola

ences and his fascination with poetry, mythology and social
issues. He belongs to a contemporary generation of artists for
whom the computer is an integral tool in the art-making
process. His work generally lie somewhere in between fact
and fiction, reality and imagination, art and science. Trimitsis
has exhibited his art nationally in solo shows and group exhi-
bitions. Visit www.georgetrimitsisart.com. Library hours are

Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Lee's latest
release, "Last Days At The Lodge," has received huge critical


and commercial success, coming on the heels of his two pre-
vious releases "Supply and Demand" from 2006 and his self-
titled debut from 2005. Taking inspiration from Stevie
Wonder, Bill Withers, John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Lee di-
rects his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American
tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music

at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwa-
ter. Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheck-
erdhall.com. By the time he was 13 years old, Garrett had a
classical music career that would make most artists of any
age pea-green with envy. Born in the German city of Aachen
to an American ballerina mother and a German father who
was a lawyer, Garrett was a true child prodigy. At age 8, he
was being booked to play as a soloist in front of some of the
world's greatest orchestras, including the London Philhar-
monic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Russian Na-
tional Orchestra. The violinist has carved out a unique and
wholly new artistic path, one that pays as much homage to
Metallica as to Mozart. Garrett is a huge star in Europe, as
well as the Far East. He plays nightly to thousands of adoring
fans, particularly in Germany where he has already complet-
ed a sold-out arena tour, conquered the charts and garnered
two gold discs for both of his records released there.

Lampanelli was nominated for a Best Comedy Album Gram-
my for her "Dirty Girl" release. A cross between Don Rickles,
Archie Bunker and a vial of estrogen, Lampanelli is an equal
opportunity offender and a regular on "The Tonight Show"
and on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows. She re-
cently joined the ranks of comic greats and cut her first ever
one-hour HBO comedy special, "Long Live the Queen." The
show contains strong adult subject matter.
David Gray, Tuesday, April 13, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eck-
erd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road. Tickets range from
$27.50 to $47.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerd-
hall.com. Gray is on tour in support of his current record re-
lease "Draw The Line." His breakthrough came with the
worldwide release of this fourth album, "White Ladder" in
1999 which featured his best-known songs, including "This
Year's Love," "Babylon," "Please Forgive Me" and "Sail Away."
The September 2009 release of "Draw the Line" has spawned

Opening this week

Worthington battles Fiennes in 'Clash'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

A number of new movie releases will hit the-
aters this week, including the following films
opening in wide release:

'Clash of the Titans'
Genre: Action, adventure, fantasy and
remake
Cast: Sam Worthington, Gemma Arter-
ton, Mads Mikkelsen, Ralph Fiennes, Liam
Neeson and Alexa Davalos
Director: Louis Leterrier
Rated: PG-13
In "Clash of the Titans," the ultimate
struggle for power pits men against kings
and kings against gods.
But the war between the gods them-
selves could destroy the world. Born of a
god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam
Worthington) is helpless to save his family
from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god
of the underworld. With nothing left to
lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a danger-
ous mission to defeat Hades before he can
seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and
unleash hell on earth.
Perseus sets off on a perilous journey
deep into forbidden worlds, leading a dar-
ing band of warriors, including Draco
(Mads Mikkelsen), an experienced soldier
who encourages the defiant Perseus to
make use of his god-given abilities.
Battling unholy demons and fearsome
beasts, they will only survive if Perseus
can accept his power as a god, defy his
fate and create his own destiny.
Propelling audiences into a mythological
world of epic action and adventure, "Clash
of the Titans" will be presented in 3D,
making the gods even more formidable,
the creatures even more fearsome, and
taking audiences even deeper into the
mythological realm of Perseus' quest.


'Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get
Married Too?'
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: Tyler Perry, Sharon Leal, Janet
Jackson, Malik Yoba, Jill Scott, Lamman
Rucker, Cicely Tyson and Louis Gossett Jr.
Director: Tyler Perry
Rated: PG-13
Reuniting the same charismatic cast and
characters from his hit comedy/drama,
"Why Did I Get Married," Tyler Perry brings
us the next chapter in the lives of eight col-
lege friends struggling with the challenges
of marital life in "Why Did I Get Married
Too?"
Gathered together in the Bahamas for
their annual one-week reunion, four close
couples eagerly reconnect, sharing news
about their lives and relationships.
But their intimate week in paradise is
disrupted by the unexpected arrival of
Sheila's ex-husband, Mike, who hopes to
break up her new marriage with Troy and
win her back. The others soon realize they
too are not immune to the challenges of
commitment and fidelity. Angela doesn't be-
lieve her husband, Marcus, can be faithful
now that he's a celebrity television news-
caster.
Dianne and Terry's relationship is feeling
the strain of raising children. And Patricia,
a successful self-help psychologist, must fi-
nally reveal the deep flaws in her seemingly
perfect marriage to Gavin.
With their relationships hanging in the
balance when they return home, each cou-
ple must choose between blame and for-
giveness, doubt and faith, with life-altering
consequences...

Volunteers needed

Volunteers sought for
Parent Aide program
PINELLAS COUNTY Parent Aide volunteers are currently
being recruited.
Parent Aide volunteers are considered foot soldiers in the
front lines of effectiveness on child abuse prevention. Volun-
teers are committed to helping each child's parent succeed at
parenting. The Parent Aide program seeks volunteers that can
help break the cycle of child abuse that may have existed in a
family for generations.
Those interested in helping a struggling parent keep up with
their children's growth stages and changes in behavior, having
a positive influence in the lives of a family and making a differ-
ence in the community may call Pat Measel at 544-3900, ext.
169.

Volunteers needed to deliver meals
PINELLAS COUNTY Volunteers are needed to deliver hot,
nutrious meals to the homebound.
Volunteers for the Neighborly Meals on Wheels program
spend about 90 minutes mid days to deliver meals to seniors
living alone, too poor to buy food or to frail to cook and shop for
themselves.
The Neighborly Care Network is in desperate need of volun-
teers to deliver meals in the central Pinellas County area.
Call Pat Hazell at 573-9444, ext. 291.
The Hospice of Florida Suncoast
LARGO There are numerous, wide-ranging volunteer op-
portunities with The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast for indi-
viduals interested in activities that truly make a difference in
the lives of people with chronic illnesses and those nearing the
end of life or addressing end-of-life issues.
Volunteers involved in patient and family support become
family friends to those served by The Hospice of the Florida
Suncoast, assisting with a broad variety of needs that arise,
such as visiting with patients and families, running errands,
helping with light household chores and much more.
In addition, The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast offers vol-
unteer opportunities that serve patients and families behind
the scenes.
Call Kathy Roble, director of volunteer services at 586-4432
or visit www.thehospice.org.

Volunteers needed to assist the elderly
PINELLAS COUNTY The Area Agency on Aging of
Pasco-Pinellas Inc. seeks volunteers to help the elderly
make informed decisions about Medicare and health insur-
ance.
Through Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, vol-
unteers also make presentations to community groups and
participate in local health fairs, senior fairs and other out-
reach events.


Call Susan Samson at 570-9696, ext. 234.

Community Care needs mentors
PINELLAS COUNTY Gulf Coast Community Care needs vol-
unteers age 30 and older for its mentoring program. Volunteers
are matched with children who need a positive adult role
model. Many of the children are in foster care or live with a sin-
gle parent who is going to school and working. There is a need
for volunteers for children of all ages.
Volunteers give time to one child and are provided social
events and support by agency staff. No experience is necessary.
There are no costs. Volunteers spend a few hours a week in
simple activities such as reading, fishing, baking, teaching a
craft or visiting a park with a child. The agency has children
throughout Pinellas waiting for mentors.
To volunteer, call Beverly at 479-1841.

Humane Society of Pinellas
seeks volunteers
CLEARWATER The Humane Society of Pinellas is seeking
volunteers, particularly weekends.
Opportunities include direct animal interaction using the ac-
claimed Open Paw method, administrative assistance, adoption
counselors, event planning and fund raising and humane edu-
cation. Animal lovers will enjoy an opportunity to join the first
shelter in the Southeast to implement Open Paw while playing
an important role in saving homeless pets.
Call Bobbie at 797-7722, ext. 237 or visit www.humanesoci-
etyofpinellas.org.

Guardian ad Litem volunteers sought
PINELLAS COUNTY Close to a thousand children in
Pinellas County need a Guardian ad Litem volunteer to be
their voice in the courtroom and to advocate for them in
the child welfare system.
As a child's advocate, a Guardian ad Litem becomes fa-
miliar with the child's case and makes recommendations
to the court to help ensure the child has a safe, caring and
stable environment.
Guardians receive ongoing assistance to help them
make a positive difference in the lives of children. To vol-
unteer and arrange to attend a brief orientation, call 464-
6528. For information and an application, visit
www.guardianadlitem6.org.

The Main Library in Clearwater needs
volunteers and donated books
CLEARWATER The Friends of the Library Book & Gift
store at the Clearwater Main Library needs donations of
paperback books in good condition to sell in the store.
Bring donations to the Main Library at 100 N. Osceola
Ave., Clearwater, or call Judy Bazata at 442-1896 for


pick-up.
The Clearwater Main Library also needs volunteers to
work at the Friends of the Library Book & Gift store. A
short training session is required. The store is open from
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The variable work
hours are usually about two to four hours a week to fit
one's schedule. Evening workers are especially needed.
The proceeds from the bookstore are used to enhance
the Clearwater Public Library System.
To volunteer, call Rosalie Murray at 531-0667 or Rita
Garvey at 446-3845.

Volunteers needed at hospitals
CLEARWATER Volunteers are needed to support the
CareVan, CareLift and HealthRide programs of Morton
Plant Mease Health Care in Pinellas and Pasco counties.
These programs provide patients and family members
with free van transportation services to and from Morton
Plant, Mease Countryside, Mease Dunedin and Morton
Plant North Bay hospitals.
More than 1,600 free rides are provided each month to
and from medical appointments through Morton Plant
Mease van transportation services.
Volunteers also are needed to assist at each of the four
Morton Plant Mease hospital gift shops. Gift shop hours
and days of operation vary. Call 734-6262.

American Cancer Society
PINELLAS COUNTY The American Cancer Society is in
need of volunteers to drive patients to and from their cancer
treatments. The society has a special program called "Road
to Recovery." Volunteers also call and make appointments
with those who drive the patients for their scheduled ap-
pointments.
Countywide only about 25 volunteers give of their time to
drive these patients. Many more volunteers are needed to
take clients to get their radiation or chemotherapy. The lack
of having drivers is a very serious problem for thousands of
cancer patients. It is not just a once a week trip, but some
patients must go daily, over a several-month period. These
patients are usually unable to drive because they are ill or
have no car.
The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program
provides free transportation to and from their life-saving
treatments. Volunteer drivers give their time and the use of
their own cars to transport these patients.
Requirements to be a driver are a valid driver's license
and a car in good condition. Volunteer hours are flexible
and driving one day a week is acceptable. Training, maps
and directions are provided.
Call the American Cancer Society Pinellas Unit at 812-
7006.

DoYou Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer?
Skin cancer is very common in the sunshine state. The American
Cancer Society estimates that there are over 1 million cases of skin
cancer per year in the United States. While most cancers are curable
when treated early, many are detected too late and can be deadly.
There are 3 main tvyes of skin cancer: Basil Cell Carcinoma (BCC),
Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Malignant Melanoma (MM).
Additionally, Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are the most common
precancer and may progress into Squamous cell if left untreated.
Basal Cell is by far the most common skin cancer, accounting for
nearly 80% of all skin cancers in the U.S. Thankfully, these rarely
spread (metastasize) but can be disfiguring. Basal Cell
Carcinomas often appear as a flesh-toned bump (papule) and have
no symptoms. Eventually, they become a sore that bleeds or doesn't
heal. These are most often treated in the office as an outpatient with
extremely high success rate.

Red Frog founder 'arrested'
LARGO Jenn Greacen, founder and execu-
tive director of Red Frog Marketing was recent-
ly "arrested" in her office in front of staff and
associates.
The stunt is in support of the Muscular Dy-

lock up, where local executives show their
support by agreeing to the incarceration and
spend their day "raising bail money" to benefit
the charity.
Greacen didn't go down alone: Red Frog
AKA Leap Ahead, the firm's resident 6-foot
mascot, joined her in cuffs.
Greacen and the Red Frog were picked up
by a Largo firefighter and transported in a city


vehicle to their "holding cell" at the East Bay
Country Club in Largo. The two were to re-
main in captivity until a minimum $3,250 bail
could be raised.
