rate fell slightly from 12.9 percent
in January to 12.6 percent in Feb-
ruary. According to the report,
1,085 more Pinellas County resi-

Sign ordinance spurs complaints


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO Business owners told city commis-
sioners April 6 that the sign ordinance is hinder-
ing their efforts to make a living during these
tough economic times.
City officials have scheduled a work session
May 11 on the issue, which spurred complaints
from owners of businesses along West Bay Drive
and the Clearwater-Largo Road.
Joseph Stefko, the owner of the Hair Jungle off
West Bay Drive, said a petition has been signed
by 50 business operators seeking relief from the
sign ordinance and more signatures are expected.
"We are all definitely struggling," Stefko said.
He said he understands that people don't want
to see gigantic signs, but if they drive around


areas outside of the redevelopment districts in the
city, they will "see every kind of sign there is."
"Maybe give us some relief and maybe give us a
year and see what happens give us an opportu-
nity to try something different. We will work with
you," he said.
Michael Novak, general manager of the
Goodyear tire dealership at 706 Clearwater-Largo
Road, asked for relief from the sign ordinance as
he did last month.
'This will allow local business owners to adver-
tise more aggressively during this economic
downtown," he said.
The sign ordinance prohibits "attention-getting
devices," streamers, balloons, strobe lights, bea-
con lights, search lights, portable signs and signs
on vehicles used as an advertising platform and

said.
He proposed allowing businesses to use two

"I'm not asking you to rewrite the sign ordi-

Commissioners heard complaints about van-

Another complaint was about not being able to

"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! i - -

Thriller writer speaks at library May 8


LARGO Best-selling thriller writer
and columnist Lisa Scottoline will dis-
cuss her fiction and the writing life
when she appears at the Largo Public
Library Saturday, May 8, 1 p.m.
Scottoline's appearance is part of the
Greater Largo Library Foundation's
Outstanding Authors Series. The event
is being sponsored by John and Sidney
Goodman, and the Palms of Largo, a se-
nior living campus managed by the
Goodman Group.
Her thrillers have made her The New
York Times best-selling author of 16
books, including "Look Again," "Lady
Killer," and "Dirty Blonde." Her newest
thriller, 'Think Twice," was just released
this month.
"Called 'the female John Grisham,'
Scottoline crafts thrillers that twist and
turn as she ratchets up the action, al-
ways peppering them with an emotion-
ally charged quest for justice," said a
news release from the Library Founda-


tion.
"Her

array of ordi-
nary, yet
somehow ex-
traordinary,
female charac-
ters who hang
tight through

pace of her in- Lisa Scottoline
tense plots are
legendary.
In many ways, Scottoline writes sto-
ries about women that happen to be
blockbuster legal thrillers," the release
said.
A lawyer, Scottoline writes a weekly
column for the Philadelphia Inquirer en-
titled "Chick Wit," a witty take on life
from a woman's perspective.

Clearwater City Hall avoids the wrecking ball


By LESTER R. DAILEY

CLEARWATER What is a city without a city hall called?
For a few days last week, it looked like it might be called Clear-
water.
That possibility arose during a discussion of a $6.3 million
contract to have Honeywell upgrade the energy efficiency of
several city-owned facilities. The original list contained 33 facil-
ities, but 10 of those were deleted during the discussion. Light-
ing of the city's athletic fields also was dropped, pending
further study.
But by far the most controversial of the proposals was avoid-
ing the $500,000 in repairs and upgrades that City Hall needs,
as well as its $300,000 annual operating cost, by demolishing
the 1960s building and moving the city government into ap-
proximately one-third of the floor space at the 90,000-square-
foot main library. Councilman Paul Gibson was the main
proponent of the plan, saying that, in today's tight economy,
either expenses must be cut to the bone or taxes must be
raised.
"If we continue on the path that my projections state, we're
probably looking at raising our property taxes 80 or 90 percent
over the next three years," Gibson said at the March 31 City

Council meeting. "We're just not going to be able to keep doing
things the way we used to. ... The past is not the future."
Councilman John Doran, who had earlier said that he
would like to take over the whole library for use as a city hall,
said that the new main library is a recent addition to down-
town, and losing part of it to the city government wouldn't be
the end of the world.
"It would be hard to find anybody who loves libraries more
than I do," Doran said. "I actually spent my life in libraries.
However, we're faced with some very dramatic financial situa-
tions and we're going to have to make some tough decisions."
Mayor Frank Hibbard disagreed, saying that, if some branch
libraries are closed, the main library will get even more use,
and it shouldn't have to double as a city hall.
'This (current) building is not perfect, but it is a better city
hall than we could make out of what we could get at the li-
brary," Hibbard said, adding that the city should spend the
money needed to make it safe.
Councilman Bill Jonson said that the old assumption that
the site of the current city hall could be sold to developers for
millions of dollars and the money could be used to build a new
city hall near the Municipal Services Building is no longer true.
"I am not in favor of us moving to the library at this time,"


Councilman George Cretekos said. "I would support making
the improvements to City Hall here now."
Nobody from the audience spoke in favor of moving city gov-
ernment to the library, and two residents spoke against it.
"City Hall is a symbol," ship repair company executive Re-
natta St. Lawrence said. 'When that symbol disappears, part
of your city will disappear with it."
Saying that "perception is everything," she urged the council
to liven up City Hall with lights, jingles and bells.
Gibson asked Barbara Pickell, the city' library director, how
the move would affect the library and how much unused space
would be available for the city government.
"If I'm told to do this, we will make it work but there will be a
diminution of some services," Pickell said. She added that, al-
though some conference rooms may be unused at certain
times the library is open, there really is no space to spare.
Gibson replied that he had been under the erroneous im-
pression that the library had thousands of square feet of va-
cant space, and joined his colleagues in unanimously
approving the upgrades, including those to City Hall.
"As long as we can keep this building safe for employees and
technologically efficient, we'll stay here as long as we can," City
Manager Bill Horne said.


BUDGET, from page 1

Charles E. Piercy, a Tarpon Springs resident
who owns property in Largo where his daugh-
ter and grandson live, complimented Police
Chief Lester Aradi and his officers for helping
his daughter with a personal problem.
'The help provided today was probably pret-
ty routine, perhaps even a boring matter to the
officer who handled it, but he took care of my
daughter like she was the most important per-
son in the world," Piercy wrote in an e-mail.
He said that "even in these lean years" city
commissioners shouldn't find it necessary to
make cuts that would put the men and women
in any more danger than they already face.
Barber said the public expects police officers
to ride "around our streets at night making
sure our sleep is uneventful and our lives a lit-
tier safer."
"We're rarely very grateful, more likely criti-
cal, because we have a long memory of a
speeding ticket and short one on what these
folks risk for us," Piercy wrote.
City commissioners have discussed the op-
tion of cutting staff at Fire Station 41 on
Fourth Street from two to one person per shift
and eliminating the positions of three sworn
police officers. A few commissioners have spo-
ken out against such possible cuts.
Some Ideas for raising revenue and cutting
costs discussed by city officials brought criti-
cism from city employee, Pat Howard, a recre-
ation system specialist.
She said suggestions put forth by employees
of our city that pertained mostly to her depart-
ment "were given serious consideration by the
'Indians' putting them out there, while consid-


eration by the 'chiefs' seems inadequate."
"One of the biggest messages, however, that
is coming across with the responses to our
suggestions, is that management thinks the
majority of the employees are stupid," Howard
wrote. "How many of our employee evaluations
indicate that we 'work well independently,' 'or
work well with little to no supervision.' A lot?
Then why is so much supervisory staff need-
ed?"
In response, Assistant City Manager Mike
Staffopoulos said as part of the budget-prepa-
ration process, staff was asked for suggestions
to cut the budget and raise revenue.
He said the result was a substantial list of
suggestions that were reviewed by the city
manager, assistant city managers and human
resource director.
The results were shared with department di-
rectors.
"Each director was asked to share the re-
sults of their department staffs questions with
their staff," Staffopoulos wrote. "It is important
to note that, while some of the answers appear
short, each one was discussed on its merits,
and its direct impact to the operating budget
and efficiency of the city. It is understandable

Police beat


Silver Streak arcade raided
LARGO Sheriffs narcotics detectives seized
53 coin-operated slot machines from the Silver
Streak arcade March 30 after receiving tips that
the business was operating illegal gambling ma-
chines.
The business, which is at 10623 117th Drive
North and is owned by David Meunier, came
under investigation in August, reports said.
Through their investigation, detectives con-
firmed that the business is operating slot ma-
chines that are in violation of Florida laws.
Detectives had obtained a search warrant as
part of the investigation.
Based on probable cause gained through
their investigation, the detectives were able to
obtain a search warrant from the court to seize
the machines. Sheriffs detectives removed all
the slot machines from the business. The ma-
chines will be held as evidence until the investi-
gation is concluded. No arrests have been made;
however, the investigation is still open and ongo-
ing.

No animal cruelty suspected in
dogs' heads case
LARGO Six severed dogs' heads found at a
waste bin at Tucson's Southwest Grill, 13563
Icot Blvd., were used for legal medical purpos-
es, a police spokesman said April 6.
No animal cruelty acts of any kind were in-
volved, said Lt. Mike Loux, in a press release.
'The heads were legally obtained and were
from animals that had previously been eutha-
nized. They were used for veterinary training
purposes, and by a licensed medical compa-
ny," Loux said.
Officers went to the scene March 30 after
they were asked to investigate.
The Police Department has not revealed any
evidence which should necessitate a height-
ened concern for animals due to the discovery
of the canine heads, Loux said.
The investigation is still active so no further
information will be released until the case is
officially closed, Loux said.

Clearwater man arrested in
Seminole stabbing
SEMINOLE A Clearwater man was arrested


Sunday, April 4, in connection with an early
morning stabbing that took place in Seminole.
According to the report from the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office, Jeffrey Marshall Fatkin,
22, a transient, was stabbed several times dur-
ing an argument with Dane Vincent Carleton,
22. Fatkin is recovering at St. Joseph's in
Tampa, the report said.
Carleton was charged with battery with a
deadly weapon. He was booked into the Pinellas
County Jail where he remained in lieu of
$10,000 bond.
According to responding deputies, Fatkin
and a couple of his friends reportedly met with
Carleton about 2:30 a.m. near 92nd Terrace
and 86th Way North in Seminole. An argument
began about an unpaid debt and at some point,
the victim was stabbed several times, allegedly
by Carleton, who fled the scene, the report said.
Sheriffs K-9 tracked from the scene and
found Carleton in the front yard of a home a
few blocks away on 92nd Terrace where he was
arrested without further incident. The report
said a knife, described as a pocketknife, was al-
legedly found in Carleton's possession.
The investigation continues.

Youth struck by van
PINELLAS PARK A 16-year-old male was
struck by a van April 2 at about 11:30 p.m. The
driver fled the scene without stopping to check
on the victim or offer any aid.
The crash occurred in the 9500 block of 66
Street North where the pedestrian was crossing
the road. The van was last seen Northbound on
66th Street, from the scene.
The teen suffered serious injuries and was
transported to a local hospital. Further infor-
mation on the victim is unavailable at this time.
Police are seeking to locate and identify the
driver of the van, which is described as an early
1990s white Ford, with damage to the left front.
The hood is popped open slightly and the van
will be missing the driver's side headlight and
the grill.
Anyone with information that can assist us
in identifying the van and/or the driver is asked
to call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas at 1-800-873-
TIPS or submit their tip via the Internet at
www.crimstoppersofpinellas.org. Tipsters can
remain anonymous, and tips received through

Store employee foils
jewelry thief
CLEARWATER- A store employee and a palm
tree helped prevent a would-be jewelry thief
from getting away from the scene of the crime.
According to a report from the Pinellas Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office, Michael Basilotto, 43, of
Northport, went to the International Diamond
Center, 3696 Ulmerton Road in unincorporated
Clearwater about 11:45 a.m. on March 31.
Basilotto, who was dressed in scrubs and a
white lab jacket, identified himself as a doctor,
the report said.
Basilotto was shopping for diamond rings and
asked to see the clarity of the diamonds out-
doors in the sunlight, the report said. A store
employee, Timothy Hulfish, 57, of St. Peters-
burg, agreed and accompanied Basilotto outside
where he showed the rings one-by-one as
Basilotto put them on his fingers to check for
clarity.
Basilotto then struck Hulfish in the shoulder
and ran with the three rings in hand. Hulfish
chased Basilotto to his vehicle where the two
struggled inside the car as Hulfish tried to keep
Basilotto from getting away, the report said.
Basilotto pulled out of the parking space and
crashed into a palm tree in front of the Execu-
tive Inn, 3580 Ulmerton Road. Deputies re-
sponded to the scene and Basilotto was
arrested.
Hulfish was transported to St. Anthony's Hos-
pital for treatment of non-life-threatening in-

Editorial


Leave the library alone


The Clearwater City Council flirted with a
controversial plan to demolish City Hall and
move city government functions into one-third
of the floor space at the downtown library.
Such a proposal was fraught with negative
consequences.
City Hall is the symbol and center of city
government. Relocating functions to the li-
brary may send the message to residents and
visitors that the city does not place a premium
on its image or role in Clearwater. A resident
put it aptly: When city hall goes, a part of the
city goes with it.
Furthermore, the library serves an impor-
tant role in the city from both economic and
cultural standpoints. The library brings peo-
ple downtown and creates activities for chil-
dren and adults through programs. It
stimulates community pride and is in a per-
fect location for residents and visitors; it's
easy to find and offers a beautiful view of the
Intracoastal Waterway. In a sense, it's a
showcase, and all its space is being used, ac-
cording to the director.
If the City Council decided to allow its staff
to occupy some of the offices, would they
eventually be tempted to take up more space
in the building?
In addition, groups that support and pro-
mote the library would probably fume if the li-
brary spaces were shared with other city
services.
Granted, city officials are facing tough bud-
get decisions, but moving city operations to
the library smacked of robbing Peter to pay
Paul.

Swimmers who enjoy the Southwest Pool in
Largo can breathe easier; city officials don't


plan to close it.
Largo officials had considered closing the
pool as an option in helping to cut $3.5 mil-
lion from the proposed city budget for the
next fiscal year.
That spurred protests from city residents
who are involved in organized swimming and
diving programs and casual swimmers.
At a March 29 meeting, several people who
don't live in Largo also raved about the
Olympics-sized pool. A Sarasota swim team
director pointed out that her group competes
several times a year in events at the pool,
spending money at area hotels and restau-
rants.
Many citizens also suggested that the city
consider forming a task force to examine
ways to better market the pool and increase
usage. That suggestion has merit, especially
since so many residents and others have
shown strong support for programs offered at
the pool and keeping it open year-round.
That said, city commissioners face tough
budget choices again this year, and any plan
to cut services, whether they are in public
safety, recreation or cultural activities, will
anger some constituents.
Proposed increases in users' fees, though,
make sense. Residents who don't use certain
programs shouldn't be asked to subsidize the
costs of specific programs that they can't or
will not use.
Raising recreation fees might cause some
grumbling among participants in the pro-
grams affected, but it's a reasonable option
combined with other measures, such as freez-
ing personnel positions and wages, to dealing
with budget shortfalls.
Something has to give.

Poised for a financial disaster
Re: "Give President Obama a chance," March
25
Editor:
The truth is that the government does not
run any programs as effectively as a private
company. Government overspends and has us
positioned to default on our debt and poised
for a financial disaster that is unprecedented
in our history. You all see it coming. Most just
can't believe it will really happen.
The Democrats continue to point at FDR as
an example but FDR started the now bank-
rupt Social Security program and the Democ-
rats have continued to change the laws over
the years to assure its bankruptcy.
We are going to save money by now finding
fraud in Medicare!
(Apparently we weren't looking for it be-
fore?).
If the definition of insanity is "continue to do
the same thing and expect the results to
change" then why in the world would we the
people entrust another huge sector of our
economy to a group of people that have driven
every social program to bankruptcy on the
backs of its citizens?
I know why. The last line in the Reader's
Forum letter I read said it all, "where's my
stimulus check?"

FRLA opposes oil exploration
Editor:
The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Associ-
ation is closely monitoring legislation filed by
both the Florida Senate and the Florida House
of Representatives on the issue of oil and gas
exploration in the Gulf of Mexico.
Although it appears unlikely that offshore
drilling will be passed into law this year, FRLA
is prepared to be actively engaged should the
measure be brought before the Florida Legisla-
ture in the final weeks of the session.
Florida's hospitality industry depends upon
maintaining pristine ecological systems for
tourism and travel. Our state's economic sta-
bility depends on a strong tourism base of
which the hospitality industry is a foundation.
In 2008, Florida's tourism industry generat-
ed $65.2 billion in direct economic impact and
$3.9 billion in tax revenue. With more than
84.5 million visitors annually, there are more
than 1.5 million visitors in Florida on any
given day. It is the state's largest private em-
ployer with more than one million Floridians
directly employed, generating a payroll of $16
billion.
While the issue has been discussed over re-
cent months in local town hall meetings and


forums, many questions still remain. We
strongly encourage our elected officials to take
a measured and thoughtful approach in order
to ensure that a fair and accurate assessment
of the facts is openly debated.
We ask members of our association who op-
pose oil and gas exploration in the Gulf of
Mexico to contact their local senators and rep-
resentatives within the next two weeks to let
them know we will not support any measure
that would be detrimental to Florida's tourism
and hospitality industry.

Who owns the beach?
Editor:
Caddy's on Sunset Beach has restricted the
rights of individuals to the legally allowed uses
of the public beach. New signs posted on the
beach in front of Caddy's mandate no coolers
or alcoholic beverages (unless purchased from
Caddy's) on the beach adjacent to Caddy's.
The owner has stated he owns the beach and
can make his own rules.
Regardless if the restrictions are a good idea
considering the large crowds at Caddy's, my
minimal understanding of Florida law is that
no private citizen can restrict the public use of
the beaches. I am not sure what their re-
course is if you don't play by Caddy's new
beach rules, but most likely detractors will not
be welcome "inside" Caddy's. I personally
think it is insulting that I can legally walk on
the beach with a (plastic) glass of wine or a
beer in hand, but only until I walk in front of
Caddy's.

Supports cafe operator
Editor:
When I was visiting in Largo the last few
months I had the pleasure of attending the li-
brary and having a break at the Bookmark
Cafe. I wish to add my comments about the
contract that was not renewed with Dalal
Mansour. I was able to talk to her about the
problems that she was having with the city. All
comments about the quality of service or how
she runs the cafe aside, it remains that she
does abide by the health laws, pays the rent
and makes a living. The fact that she is suc-
cessful, pays the high rent and makes a profit
speaks for itself. Her customers are those who
keep her in business and they vote every day
by keeping her profitable. The city is quite
wrong in its approach to terminate a proven
success to seek a new and unknown operator.

On becoming a manager


The main reason (and
there are several) I never be-
came a highly paid executive
was that I'm no good at
managing people. To rise in
the business world, sooner
or later you have to super-
vise other employees, even if
it's just one or two of them.
And that, to me, is a royal
pain.
For one thing, I'm not very
bright. To be a competent
manager you should know
more than the people you're
managing. That's asking a
lot. Most of us aren't even
sure we know how to do our
own work, let alone direct
the efforts of those beneath
us.
The first time I became a
manager was in the U.S.
Navy. My ship was sent to
the Korean war zone. I was
the second-ranking ra-
dioman aboard. The top guy
was a reserve radioman
chief who had been activat-
ed for the Korea trip. He
hadn't seen active duty for
five years; his skills were
rusty. So on a daily basis, I
was the top dog.
I didn't want to be. I had
no desire to prepare the
watch schedules, supervise
the ten operators and mes-
sengers, and enforce the
dozens of petty rules. All I
wanted to do, from the get-
go, was to stand my watch,
copy hours of Morse code
messages, and then hit the
sack. I did a lousy job of
running the radio shack. I
was finally happy to turn
most of the housekeeping
over to a meticulous subor-
dinate who loved to keep
things ship-shape.
My next management post
was running a small public
relations office at a college. I
supervised two women. One
was a writer named Tess.
The other was a secretary,


fDriver's Seat
Bob Driver


Ruth, who hated Tess's
guts. In addition to acting as
a referee, I had to wrestle
with Tess's neurosis. She
was incapable of working on
more than one project at a
time. Multi-tasking was out
of the question. With half a
dozen assignments ap-
proaching deadline, Tess
would fixate on one per day,
and say bugger-all to the
others. I did my best to en-
courage her to distribute her
efforts for, say, an hour at a
time per project, but she
wouldn't budge. So I budged
myself on to another depart-
ment.
And so on. My happiest
employment has been in
jobs that did not require me
to tell other people what to
do or how to do it. I like to
write or edit stuff news re-
leases, brochures, profiles,
magazine articles, columns,
editorials, history books, ad-
vertisements. Words are so
much easier to deal with
than people. Words don't
weep, or curse at you.
Another burden of being a
manager and achieving ex-
ecutive success is the end-
less meetings. Although
e-mail, texting and twitter-
ing may have reduced the
number of sit-downs re-
quired in a business day, no
one has discovered how to
eliminate the need for meet-
ings. How I have loathed
them. So much talking, so
little accomplished.
To this day, I genuinely
admire capable managers.
They're about ten percent of
the managerial crop, from
what I can see. They enjoy


responsibility. They view
their underlings as human
beings who can profit from
help and guidance, rather
than being dominated or
bossed around. Good man-
agers would rather praise
than criticize. Instead of dic-
tating, they listen. They are
often gifted in psychology.
On many days, they are
more of a guidance coun-
selor than a boss.
From what I read about
the modern workplace, a
principal requirement for
today's managers is that
they wear administrative
handcuffs. That is, they find
it virtually impossible to fire
anyone. If an employee is
seen having sex on his/her
desk with a security guard,
the employee will probably
get the heave-ho. Or if he
steals corporate files and
sells them to Iran, he is a
goner. But if the worker is
merely incompetent, subor-
dinate, lazy, stupid, a liar,
defiant, slanderous and un-
productive, his job may still
be safe if he is a member of
a minority (and almost any
minority will do), if he has
any sort of illness that might
be traced to his job, if a su-
pervisor has made the
slightest comment that
might be considered a sexu-
al, religious or ethnic ha-
rassment, and/or if the
employee has the funds to
hire one of the many smart,
slick lawyers who stand
ready to do battle on behalf
of oppressed workers. But I
could be mistaken on all of
this.
It's conceivable that every-
one who reads this column
has been either a superb
employee or a first-rate
manager. If so, my congrats
go to you.

You would think the cur-
rent format being used to
decide a national champi-
on in men's college basket-
ball would suffice.
America's premier sport-
ing event now features 65
of the nation's 342 NCAA
Division I teams. It seems
like plenty to me and many
other people concur.
But the NCAA doesn't
agree with us.
With expanded dollar
signs in its eyes, the NCAA
is considering growing the
Big Dance to 96 teams a
48 percent increase over
the current format.
So, assuming this hap-
pens, we can look forward
to seeing an even more

Ask Dr. Panzarella:

Enjoying Life -With Dentures!
You used to love to eat out with friends. You used to love to talk and smile and
laugh. You used to enjoy every minute of life to its fullest. Now, you'd rather just stay
home.
~ ..- 11........'1.. teeth, you are not alone. More than 20 million people in America
are edentulous or without teeth. Tooth loss is not only embarrassing and unattractive,
collapsing your face and causing you to look far
older than you need to, it is also unhealthy,
sometimes leading to serious problems. One
thing that every dentist knows, but almost no
one else does, is that over time, dentures cause
the jawbone to wear and whither away.
The obvious solution is to keep as many
healthy, natural teeth as possible. Sometimes,
though, the condition has progressed until
rea dentures are the only remaining option. But just
that word 'dentures' brings images of teeth in a
glass; embarrassing moments while eating and
the unattractive, ill-fitting look of false teeth.
Helping people find comfort and relief that not
only feels great, but looks great too, is one of the reasons I am glad to be a dentist. I
have found that one of the simplest and most effective ways to do this is with implant-
supported dentures.
How are these different than traditional dentures? First of all, the dentures made for
you look and fit much more like natural teeth. But the real benefit comes from the
implants that hold them in place. Implants are small posts placed into the bone to
replace the roots of missing teeth. These replacements fuse with the jawbone,
I. i l I 1 i. l si and intact.
Dental implants can give you a greater sense of security while eating, laughing or
speaking. Implant-supported dentures can help create a comfortable bite, reduce
chances of bone loss, enhance aesthetics and improve your speech. There is no longer
any need to use adhesives or worry about teeth clacking while talking. Some actually
feel the new dentures have taken years off their appearance.
The one thing they all agree on, though, is how great it is to get back to enjoying
life with a big, secure, natural looking smile. Why waste another day? Call us at
727.586.1955 to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if you are eligible for
implant-supported cosmetic dentures. Also visit us at aboutsmilesdental.com and read

ment could be expanded to
96 with the top 32 teams
receiving first-round byes.
The proposal would basi-
cally create an additional
round of games that would
cut the field to 64 after the
first round. Once down to
64, the current format
would pick up.
The obvious question is
why. Why does the NCAA
need to do this?
Like everything else in
life it all comes down to
money. The NCAA depends
on the tournament for 90
percent of its annual rev-
enue, which is a fairly im-
pressive chunk of change.
It is currently in the
10th year of a 13-year con-
tract with CBS that pays
the NCAA a paltry $6 bil-


lion. The final year of the
deal pays the NCAA a cool
$750 million.
So why would the NCAA
want a bigger tournament
and more money?
Because it can. NCAA of-
ficials have an out clause
in the deal with CBS after
this season, which it could
exercise.
Should that happen and
the tournament expand,
ESPN would likely pick up
the tournament for you
guessed it a bucket load
of additional money.
Basketball is a great
game and March Madness
just might be the best
sporting event in the coun-
try.

random luck.
But it wasn't random
luck that got Butler to this
year's NCAA finals. The
Bulldogs are a well-
coached team that rode a
tough defense into the
Monday night champi-
onship game with Duke
that nobody would have
dared to predict back on

Butler, an Indianapolis

Leader, April 8, 2010


County appraiser delivers preliminary tax figures


By BOB McCLURE


REDINGTON BEACH As expected, appraised values of
homes on the beaches will decline steadily again this year,
forcing town leaders to find different ways to balance their
budgets.
Pinellas County Tax Appraiser Pam Dubov was the mes-
senger March 31 at the monthly meeting of the Barrier Is-
lands Governmental Council in Redington Beach and
delivered news most expected.
"I don't have good news as to where the values are going,"
she said. "In 2009, sales were down and with it the values.
When values drop, caps drop with it."
Appraised values affect the amount of ad valorem tax the
county collects, which in turn affects the amount of money
each community on the beach receives.
"It's really early to give these figures and they could go plus
or minus 2 percent, in either direction," Dubov said.
Dubov's projected ad valorem tax base for some local mu-
niciipalities was:
Belleair Beach, down 6 percent from last year.
Belleair Shore, down 5 percent.
Clearwater, down 11 percent.
Indian Rock Beach, down 8.5 percent.
Indian Shores, down 11.5 percent.
Largo down 13 percent.
Madeira Beach, down 11 percent.
North Redington Beach, down 10 percent.


Redington Beach, down 7 percent.
Redington Shores, down 10 percent.
St. Pete Beach, down 10 percent.
Treasure Island, down 10 percent.
"I'm not really (surprised)," said Madeira Beach city manag-
er W.D. Higginbotham. "We had heard 13 percent initially,
which would have been a decrease of $250,000. So this is
somewhat of an improvement."
Higginbotham said the 10 percent decrease was in the ball-
park and city leaders would discuss areas to be cut at future
meetings.
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning said the 10 percent
his city is projected to lose is not a surprise.
"No, that's about what we were thinking," Minning said.
"We're hopeful, because of the surplus we experienced last
year, that we can apply (that money) toward this year (2011)."
Minning said the 10 percent drop in ad valorem revenue
equates into about $300,000 to $350,000.
Under Save Our Homes, homeowners in Florida have a tax
cap of 3 percent per year on homesteaded property and 10
percent on non-homesteaded property. Under a proposal on
the November ballot, the non-homesteaded cap would drop to
5 percent, eliminating an estimated $100 million from city
coffers.
"As long as the cap is 3 percent (for homesteaded property)
and 10 percent for non-homesteaded I really believe it's going
to hurt our economy in Florida," said Dubov. "I know a lot of
people aren't going to agree with me, but I favor reduction of


the cap for non-homesteaded property from 10 percent to 5
percent. In some ways it restores some level of fairness to our
system."
Dubov said Pinellas homeowners who live out of state are
constantly complaining about the tax code and how it dis-
criminates against out-of-state property owners, which make
up a sizable portion of the homeowners in Pinellas.
Like most county agencies, Dubov said her office is looking
at ways to cut costs and one way is by switching to oblique
imagery photography to survey Pinellas property. Oblique im-
agery is aerial photography that is captured at about a 45-de-
gree angle with the ground.
"We can use oblique imagery where we can," said Dubov.
"For about $85,000, it's less expensive than using appraisers
on staff. Will it be as effective? No, it will not."
Dubov said in 1988 her office had 152 employees. It cur-
rently has 135, which is 11 percent less, and "we have a lot
more parcels in Pinellas County now."
For that reason, she said any tips municipal code enforce-
ment officers can give her staff would be helpful.
"If you find unpermitted work, let us know so we can keep
up with it," Dubov said.
Dubov went on to say her office would be investigating
more cases of homestead fraud.
"If you rent property and live out of state, you lose your
homestead status," Dubov said. "So we'll be looking into more
cases of homestead fraud. When someone doesn't pay their
fair share, someone else picks up the slack."

February's unemployment

rates show glimmer of hope


By SUZETTE PORTER
A few more Floridians had jobs in February
than the month past.
In a report released March 26, state officials
pointed out that ray of sunshine, saying the
state's total nonagricultural employment in
February was up by 26,300 jobs. February
2010 also is the first time since November
2007 that the over the month change in the
number of people with jobs was positive.
However, not all the news from the state
was good. Officials said February's unemploy-
ment rate is higher than any recorded during
the 1973-1975 recession. Florida's seasonally
adjusted unemployment rate for the month
was 12.2 percent, up 0.2 percent from Janu-
ary.
The state's unemployment remains higher
than the national average of 9.7 percent.
"February's unemployment rate underscores
the critical importance of our ongoing efforts to
support Florida's families and businesses dur-
ing these challenging times," said Agency for
Workforce Innovation Director Cynthia R.
Lorenzo. "While the unemployment rate is a
lagging indicator of economic recovery, last
month's positive job growth of 26,300 jobs and
a 300 percent reduction in the number of lay-
off notices since the peak last May are both


encouraging signs of an improving economy."
The latest figures also showed a bit of good
news for Pinellas County where the unemploy-
ment rate fell slightly from 12.9 percent in
January to 12.6 percent in February. Accord-
ing to the report, 1,085 more Pinellas County
residents had jobs in February than the previ-
ous month.
For the metropolitan statistical area of
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, which in-
cludes the counties of Hernando, Hillsbor-
ough, Pasco and Pinellas, February's
unemployment rate was 13.1 percent, the
same rate as January, which earned it a rank-
ing of No. 9 statewide.
Hernando County, which is a part of the
local MSA, continued to have the second high-
est unemployment rate in the state at 15.6
percent, which was down from 15.7 in Janu-
ary. Flagler County continues to hold the No. 1
spot with an unemployment rate of 17 percent,
down from 17.1 in January.
Liberty County has the lowest unemploy-
ment in the state with a rate of 7.5 percent,
followed by Monroe County with 8 percent,
Leon County with 8.6 percent and Alachua
County with 8.8 percent.
In total, 55 counties had double-digit unem-
ployment rates in February, which was down
from 58 in January.

Do You Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer? I
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. I
There are 3 main types of skin cancer: Basil Cell Carcinoma (BCC),I
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. I
Basal Cell is by far the most common skin cancer, accounting for I
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 1
no symptoms. Eventually, they become a sore that bleeds or doesn't I
heal. These are most often treated in the office as an outpatient with
extremely high success rate.

for an outdoor recreation
area and new waterproof
mattresses for the apart-
ments and cottages.
In addition to grants, addi-
tional support comes from
the League to Aid Retarded
Children, a group of about 40
volunteers that raises money
for PARC.
"Every penny we raise goes
to PARC," said Thelma
Gilbert, a 40-year volunteer
whose son is a participant in
the adult services at PARC. "I
love (PARC). I absolutely love
the children."
The facility dates back to
the days when it was a
preschool program known as
the Peter Pan School for Re-
tarded Children, which was
later renamed by PARC
founder Bert Muller.
Muller, who died March
22, slowly built PARC into
one of the state's largest facil-
ities for the disabled, offering
a number of services for all
ages.
In the preschool Discovery
Learning Center, children
with developmental disabili-
ties and those at-risk are
grouped by development
stage as opposed to age. Typ-
ical teaching ratios are five
children per employee.
All participants have an in-
dividual education program
geared for their specific
needs, Caputo said.
PARC's other programs in-
clude a fine arts studio and
gallery, adult achievement
technology center, a library,
the Fifth Avenue Jewelers, an
area where necklaces and
bracelets made by the partic-
ipants are sold; the PARC
Day Spa, a senior center and
the cultural arts center.
There also is horticultural
programs under way that al-
lows participants to grow
vegetables and an indoor
gym that was recently
opened. The gym features a
special soft floor that was
provided by Wachovia and
Wells Fargo banks, and Palm
Harbor-based Sport Court of
Tampa Bay.
One of the most visible
parts of the facility is PARC
Center Industries where
PARC participants assemble,
pack and ship items for vari-
ous vendors. PCI employs
over 200 individuals with de-
velopmental disabilities who
are supported by production
supervisors, nondisabled as-
sembly workers, a quality
control staff and truck dri-
vers.
One of its largest clients is
BIC Graphics.
"The whole purpose (at
PARC) is independence," said
Caputo, "to take charge and
feel confident out in the com-
munity."
Those that are able are
placed in outside employ-
ment, which is monitored
and aided by PARC person-
nel.

Largo High School offers


new program next year


LARGO Largo High School is unveiling a
new program for incoming freshmen next
year. The Center for Design in Business is a
career/college preparatory Center of Excel-
lence program.
This program will provide students with the
opportunity to develop their creative skills and
earn industry certifications, while attending
high school. The focus of the program is inte-
grating art and business through the use of
technology.
Students who have an interest in computer
graphics and Web design will study with a
small group of teachers during their high
school career to prepare themselves for college
or to enter the workforce after high school.
These students will have the opportunity to
earn industry certifications in Microsoft Office
Applications, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe
Dreamweaver and Adobe Flash.
"Graduating with these certifications, as
well as a high school diploma, will advance


the students more quickly in college and in
the business world," said a school press re-
lease.
Through English I, Introduction to Informa-
tion Technology, Art2D/3D and Photography I
classes in their freshman year, the students
will participate in a variety of activities and
projects.
This "school within a school" will give the
students a core group of teachers that will
work with them to achieve the industry certifi-
cations, successfully complete high school re-
quirements and prepare them for their future
whether their choice is college or entering the
workforce.
Some of the center activities will include
field trips, job shadowing, integrated curricu-
lum projects, exploring colleges and scholar-
ship opportunities, membership in a
vocational student organization and "real
world" applications based on their classes.

of play, let alone romance.
After seeing two of their best friends another married cou-
ple with kids in suburban New Jersey split apart from living
the same life they themselves lead, Phil and Claire begin to fear
what may lie ahead: a state of bland indifference and eventual
separation.
In an attempt to take date night off auto-pilot, and hopefully
inject a little spice into their lives, Phil decides a change of
plans is in order: take Claire into Manhattan to the city's
hottest new restaurant. The Fosters, however, don't have reser-
vations. Hoping to be seated sometime before the clock strikes
12, they steal a no-show couple's reservations. What could it
hurt? Phil and Claire are now the Tripplehorns.
The real Tripplehorns, however, it turns out, are a thieving
couple who are being hunted down by a pair of corrupt cops for
having stolen property from some very dangerous people.
Forced on the run before they've even finished their risotto, Phil
and Claire soon realize that their play-date-for-parents has

in "Who Do You Love."


OPENING, from page 14

The letters find their way
into the hands of Brady Mc-
Daniels (Johnson), a belea-
guered postman standing at a
crossroads in his life. At first,
he is confused and conflicted
over what to do with the let-
ters. Overtime he begins to
form a friendship with the
Doherty family getting to
know not just Tyler but his
tough, tender yet over-
whelmed mom (Lively), stal-
wart grandmother
(Cheatham) and teen brother
Ben (Bolten) who are each
trying to stand strong against
the doubts that come with the
chaotic turn their lives have
taken.
Moved by Tyler's courage,
Brady realizes what he must
do with the letters, a surprise
decision that will transform
his heart and uplift his new-
found friends and community
- in an exhilarating act of tes-
tament to the contagious ef-
fect of one boy's unwavering
faith against the odds.

The following will open in
limited release.

'The Good, The
Bad, The Weird'
Genre: Foreign, comedy
and western
Cast: Jung Woo-sung, Lee
Byeong-heon, Song Kang-ho,
Ryu Seun-su and Zhang Qi
Director: Kim Jee-Woon
Not rated
From acclaimed Korean
genre wizard, Kim Jee-Woon
comes "The Good, The Bad,
The Weird," a classic good
versus bad showdown shot
through with wild kinetic en-
thusiasm, off-the-charts ac-
tion and, well, a bit of weird.
In the 1930s Manchurian
desert, where lawlessness
rules, the fates of three mys-
terious Korean men collide on
a train carrying precious
cargo. The Good, a suave
bounty hunter, The Bad, the
brazen leader of a gang of
outlaws, and The Weird, a
hard-up robber with nine


lives, are swept up in a fran-
tic chase across the wilder-
ness, fighting all the way for
possession of a mysterious
treasure map. "The Good,
The Bad, The Weird" explodes
in a flurry of violence as the
Japanese Army and a
brassed-off posse of Chinese
bandits join the pursuit. Who
will claim the prize for them-
selves? In this pulse-pound-
ing adventure, you can never
be sure who exactly is good,
bad, or weird.

'Who Do You Love'
Genre: Drama, performing
arts and biopic
Cast: Alessandro Nivola,
Jon Abrahams, Chi McBride,
Megalyn Echikunwoke and
Robert Randolph
Director: Jerry Zaks
Not rated
From four-time Tony
Award-winner Jerry Zaks
(Marvin's Room) comes "Who
Do You Love," an intimate
portrayal of how Phil and
Leonard Chess built the leg-
endary music label Chess
Records.
Chess launched some of
the best loved names in
blues and rock 'n' roll, and
the film features authentic
musical performances and a
score steeped in hits from


the Chess Records canon in-
cluding Muddy Waters' "Stuff
You Gotta Watch," Etta
James' "At Last" and Bo Did-
dley's "Who Do You Love."
Leonard Chess, a Polish
Jewish immigrant living in
Chicago, becomes enamored
with the new blues sound
emanating from that city in
the mid-1940s. He and his
brother Phil open a club
called Macomba and gamble
on producing "race records"
with the help of bass player
and songwriter Willie Dixon.
After initial failure, they find
tremendous success with
the iconic bluesman Muddy
Waters, and on the strength
of his popularity, started
Chess Records.
Chess Records quickly
grew into an influential
label, launching the careers
of Waters, Bo Diddley, Etta
James, and Chuck Berry,
among others, and introduc-
ing the Blues to American
audiences on a broad scale.
"Who Do You Love" tracks
the growth of Chess
Records, but more impor-
tantly, presents an intimate
look into the strains the
label placed on Leonard
Chess' family, namely his
wife Revetta and his son
Marshall.

SHOWCASE


Leader, April 8, 2010


Meet the McNeals, Pinellas County's answer to 'Pawn Stars'
Like the guys on the popular TV show, McNeal Antiques buys and sells all kinds of antiques and collectibles, jewelry and coins. The 3,000-sqaure-foot showroom is full of
interesting items in every collectible area they even have an antique bumper car in the middle of the floor.


ST. PETERSBURG Fans of the History Channel's popular reality
show "Pawn Stars" may be surprised to learn that Pinellas has its own
hometown version of the Harrsion family's famed pawn shop,
conveniently located in St. Petersburg's Kenneth City.
But McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is not a pawn shop, though
it boasts the same government licensing.
"The atmosphere is entirely different from conventional pawn shops,"
said Jim Bartlett, an appraiser at the establishment. He has been
appraising antiques and jewelry for 20 years. "We have a much more
comfortable waiting area with television, magazines, candy and cookies.
The coffee is always on, and we even offer hot chocolate and tea."
History
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is a family-owned, family-
operated business that dates back to 1980.
"We were in the coin and jewelry business in Indiana until we
moved to Florida in 1992," said John McNeal. John and his wife, Laura,
opened 4th Street Antique Alley in 1993 as an antique mall with 50
dealers in a 10,000-square-foot showroom. Their mall was an outlet for
many other freelance antique, jewelry and coin dealers to display and
sell their merchandise. "In 2006, we decided to sell the mall and go
back to being freelance dealers. We moved to our current location in
2008."
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins does total estate liquidation
including autos and real property.
"Our staff consists of an auctioneer, a realtor, a gemologist and
jeweler, a certified appraiser for general antiques, an art
appraiser, sports memorabilia specialist, coins and stamps."
According to John, if it's an antique or collectable, McNeal Antiques
buys and sells it. "We love our jobs," John said. "We buy and sell gold,
silver, diamonds, coin, bullion and antiques, militaria and collectibles.
Selling to McNeal Antiques
In the current recession and with gold prices continuing to surge, a
number of businesses have sprung up recently trying to take
advantage of the situation.
"It's very confusing with all of the new 'We buy gold for Cash' stores
and out-of-town hotel buyers popping up everywhere," Jim said. He
warns prospective gold sellers that such outfits have no long-term
interest or concern for their customers' past, present or future business.
In some cases, the business may not even be licensed or qualified to
appraise the gold they're buying. "They feel no obligation to treat


customers fairly. They'll be on their way in a few days."
Jim went on to explain the difference between a local, family-owned
business like McNeal Antiques and the fly-by-night dealers, hotel-
room buyers and television scams.
"At McNeal Antiques, we have three comfortable buying stations,
and a professional, courteous sales staff for jewelry, stamps and coins;
antiques and collectibles and everything we offer." Jim said that
McNeal Antiques also employs armed security real, off-duty police
officers. They offer expert jewelry and watch repair. "The appraisers


From left to right: John McNeal, Scott with daughter Hazel, Ron, Christy
(McNeal,s daughter with dog Cloe), Jim Bartlett and Laura McNeal
will display the items you bring in a tray, test or research the items in
front of you via computer and then evaluate them and explain what
you have."
Most i,'p..'r i.,i McNeal Antique evaluations and appraisals are
offered for free in a comfortable setting without any pressure or
obligation.
"It's lots of fun," Jim said. "We pay cash or check your choice."

Buying from McNeal Antiques
For those who collect coins, McNeal Antiques offers bullion coins for
sale all the way up to PSGS slabbed investment coins. The store also


sells investment coins, gold bars, krugerrands, maple leaves and
foreign and rare U.S. gold coins, mint sets, Morgan and Peace Dollars,
books and supplies.
"Come in and browse around," Jim said. McNeal Antiques, Jewelry
and Coins is bursting with rare, valuable and coveted items -
something for everyone, from the casual collector to the serious
connoisseur. "You're going to like it here."
What's in your safe deposit box?
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coin is best known for its zany
television commercials and its slogan What's in YOUR jewelry box?
The business' newest campaign continues along the same lines.
Now, McNeal is asking What s in your safe deposit box?
Some people pay an annual fee of $100 to a bank to store family
heirlooms, documents, gold, silver coins and rare items. In some cases,
people may not even remember what they're safeguarding.
McNeal offers to meet customers at the customer's bank to evaluate
and make an offer at no obligation. Customers also may bring in
anything of value to the store and convert unwanted items into cash.
McNeal Antiques also offers:
Written Certified Appraisals For Insurance purposes, tax and
probate, inheritance distribution or divorce settlement
Estate sales McNeal Antiques will bid to buy one item or entire
estates from lawyers, banks, powers of attorney and the general public
for onsite sales, liquidation or removal
House calls At no cost or obligation, representatives from
McNeal Antiques will meet with you or your family at home, a storage
facility or bank to discuss and evaluate your items for sale and make a
fair offer.
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is centrally located at 6206 54th
Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Call 544-6464.
If you have an item and would like an appraisal, you may e-mail a
photo to McNeal Antique at antiques@tampabay.rr.com, using the
subject line "I Need an Appraisal."

What genealogists can learn from cats


I'm a cat lover. Those who
have taken genealogy class-
es from me get an idea of
that because the wallpaper
on my computer consists of
pictures of my cats, and
they see them before I start
any slide shows associated
with the class. Granted, I
first got into cats because
they came as a "packaged
deal" with my wife, but
somewhere along the line I
turned a corner and now I'm
an official, card-carrying
cat-person all on my own.
The other day Nelson (my
rough and tumble SPCA cat)
and I were on the patio to-
gether; he was training me
to scratch him in just that
right spot when all of a sud-
den he went "on point." He
tensed up and his blink rate
went to zero; he focused his
attention entirely on one
point by the door some six


feet away. Then he darted
out of my lap, and before I
could react he had a
chameleon captured in his
mouth.
For the next week, when-
ever he was on the patio, he
stationed himself at that
same door, and waited pa-
tiently for the chameleon he
was sure would appear
there. After all, if he saw one
there once, surely there
would be others.
And there you have it;
three things genealogists
can learn from cats: focus,
persistence, and patience.
All of these qualities that
serve cats so well in their
hunt for prey, serve genealo-
gists well in their search for
ancestors. I have already
talked to you about focus
being a necessity in our re-
search efforts. A previous
month's article dealt with


Genealogy Exposed
Peter Summers


the value of a research plan
to give focus and concentra-
tion to our research. It
keeps us from becoming
side-tracked and ultimately
over-whelmed by data as we
set off on a research task.
Persistence is also a nec-
essary quality, and we real-
ized that early on in our
hunt for family information.
When we first start out col-
lecting data from our living
relatives and our basements,
attics, and old trunks, we
find the information coming
fast and furious. Pretty
soon, however, that flow of
information slows to a trick-
le, and it's a trickle that re-


quires hard work to sustain.
The "easy" information has
been collected. Now we have
to deal with the information
that is hard to come by. Now
we have to write to court-
houses, make research trips,
fight through the misspelled
names in published records,
and otherwise battle to
breakdown any number of
brick walls we encounter.
Nelson's persistence in
hunting for that next
chameleon serves as a good
model for what our own per-
sistence should be.
Patience is also something
that all researchers need to
have. This is especially clear
to me as I use the Internet in
my research, which increas-
ingly we all do. As you know,
the information available on
the Internet changes daily as
more people publish or up-
date their family trees on


sites like RootsWeb.com, and
more sites make vital record
indexes and images avail-
able. You can search a par-
ticular site one day and
come up dry, and the next
week you can revisit the
same site and find a piece of
information you have been
pursuing for months.
Sounds a lot like Nelson
going back to that same spot
where he captured that first
chameleon, doesn't it? In our
world of research it is prof-
itable to revisit sites, know-
ing that another "genealogy
chameleon" may appear at
any moment. We should
keep track of our research
successes, but also our fail-
ures as well. Recording
those failures gives us an
idea of when to revisit a pre-
viously searched site and
what to look for. That
sounds like an element that


should be included in a re-
search plan to me.
So there you have it, a few
things that genealogists can
learn from cats: focus, per-
sistence and patience. I al-
ready knew that those
characteristics were impor-
tant, but it took observing
Nelson's behavior to remind
me of them. Like so many
other things in research, I
need to be reminded of what
I already know at some level
because there are so many
things to keep in mind.
By the way, just to keep
the peace, I'm sure there are
things that Genealogists can
learn from dogs, too.

ateur genealogist who has

history since 1972. He is
currently the president of

Engaged couple finish 1-2 in 17th Seminole Stampede


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Lee Stephens and Christa Ben-
ton will be getting married in early June, so it
was only fitting the St. Petersburg couple fin-
ished one-two in the 17th annual Stampede 5K
road race April 3 at Walsingham Park.
Stephens, 29, set a record over the 3.1-mile

monte Springs, 19:01; Paul Graus, St. Peters-

Petersburg, 19:11.
Stephens, who won with a 5:22 pace, said

first time Stephens and Benton had run in a 5K
race together, Benton said, after earlier compet-

Shallow water grouper

looking good


Grouper season opened
with some absolute first
class weather making it
pretty inviting for many
anglers to make it a four-
day weekend. Busy condi-
tions may have made it
difficult to catch some fish
on the artificial reefs, but
those with some good
numbers in the 30 to 50
foot range were rewarded
with some nice catches of
grouper.
Using a combination of
live bait and frozen sar-
dines was the key for get-
ting the keeper sized fish to
eat. Finding small ledges or
rocky bottom and position-
ing the boat just up cur-
rent of the spot will help
you lure the fish out. Start
out fishing with the frozen
sardines. If your bait is
being ravished by small
baitfish and grunts, that's
a good thing. The grouper
respond to all the activity
and eventually get to the
bait before it's picked
apart. It's then that you
want to start dropping
down the pinfish. If there's
some big fish at the spot,
they're likely to prefer the
live bait. Make sure you
give each spot at least a
half an hour before decid-
ing to move. The water is
still a bit cool and the fish
aren't super active.
With water temperatures
just under 70 degrees the
baitfish are beginning to
show up in our near shore
waters. Along with the bait
comes the schools of mack-
erel and, hopefully, soon
some kingfish. Mackerel
have been steady catches
at the Skyway pier for a
couple of weeks now and
the bite is definitely im-
proving. Along our beaches
pelicans and terns can be

seen diving just offshore.
Small schools of mackerel
are thrashing through the
bait pods as well. Casting
gotcha plugs or trolling
small silver spoons will
produce good numbers of
mack's right now.
Inshore fishing was a bit
difficult this past week and
definitely over the week-
end. A lot of boats on the
water means rough condi-
tions in the afternoon. My
advice is to go early and
call it a day early. Trout
fishing was off at least for
me this past week. I'm
choosing to blame it on the
full moon; only time will
tell if that's the case. The
bite is sure to rebound as
we approach the new moon
and rising water tempera-
tures. Clacker floats and
D.O.A. shrimp combina-
tions will produce numbers
of fish by drifting the 3- or
4-foot grass flats, while free
lining small grass grunts
and pinfish can produce
larger trout along the shal-
low drop offs were the
water goes from about 1
foot to 2 or 3 foot pretty
quickly.
Until next week get
