To cope with the prescription
drug epidemic, which is the desig-

The 10-person squad headed by
Sgt. Dan Zsido goes after orga-
nized groups that purchase large
quantities of legally prescribed
drugs for illicit distribution to pre-
teens, teenagers, adults and even
senior citizens.
The Sheriffs Office has been in-
strumental in making numerous
arrests of organized pill pushers.

'The challenges of mobility'

Officials advocate alternatives for improving traffic flow


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO The Tampa Bay area is part of a
"mega-region" that has an abyssal ranking when
it comes to traffic congestion and ways to get
around.
That's the message officials delivered to Largo
Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce members
April 13 at a noon luncheon at the Palms of
Largo.
Bob Clifford, executive director of the Tampa
Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, said
13 counties in Central Florida and the Tampa Bay
Area, make up what is known as a Megaa region."
"Basing it on economics, it is the seventh
largest mega region in the United States. It is the
15th largest mega region in the world. It's the only
one without rail transit," Clifford said.


The area has grown in a sprawling fashion.
Many people live in one county and work in an-
other. The only option now to go from one county
to another is by car, he said.
"Even in slow times, we are going to continue to
grow," Clifford said. "With that growth we have
the challenges of mobility for our residents
around the entire region."
The area doesn't have enough money nor
enough ability to just build more traffic lanes, he
said.
'We're going to continue to build more lanes on
our roadways, but it can't be the only thing we do.
We need to look at options or alternatives for our
citizens," Clifford said.
Dollars haven't been leveraged well in this re-
gion at the state and federal level in terms of gas
taxes being sent to Washington, D.C., he said.


Local teachers protest

education legislation


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL


CLEARWATER A cacophony of
car horns were greeted by excited
yells April 8 on the corner of State
Road 580 and McMullen Booth
Road. Dozens of teachers turned out
throughout Pinellas County to
protest Senate Bill 6, which would
include basing half of teachers' pay
on test scores and eliminate tenure.
The Florida House of Representa-
tives passed the bill 65-55 at 2:26
a.m. April 9, but teachers and
school board members were hopeful
that Gov. Charlie Crist would veto
the bill before the seven-day dead-
line runs out.
If signed into law, the bill would
require merit pay, and half of teach-


If signed into law, the bill

and learning gains.

ers' evaluations would be based on
student tests and learning gains.
Tenure would also go away, and
teachers would not be paid any
more even if they have special certifi-
cation or their master's or doctorate
degrees.

"We are paying for rail systems, but not paying
for them here," Clifford said.
TBARTA was established in 2007 to develop a
regional transportation plan for seven counties,
including Pinellas. It is evaluating a variety of op-
tions, including rail, bus and vehicular transit.
The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority does a
great job with what it has, Clifford said, but it
needs more.
"They need to be able to provide the service
throughout the entire county and be able to pro-
vide it with much more frequency than they have
today," he said.
When it comes to high-speed rail, Florida was
ready to compete, he said, referring to the $1.25
billion the state was awarded in January by the

City golf

course off

the mark

financially
By TOM GERMOND

LARGO At least a couple of city
commissioners are concerned about
the possibility of digging the Largo
Golf Course out of a financial hole.
City Commissioner Gigi Arntzen
said at a work session April 13 she
was concerned that commissioners
were advised they were going to
have to supplement the golf course
fund with other revenue.
Arntzen said that when the golf
course is discussed in upcoming
budget sessions, she wants to know
what the marketing plan for the golf
course will be.
"Something is not working," she
said.
Mayor Pat Gerard agreed, saying
that the city spent a lot of money to
renovate the golf course.
"Yes," Arntzen said. "It's a beauti-
ful golf course. I spent Friday out
there and it's absolutely gorgeous."
But despite factors such as the

Canine buddies are a

blessing for brothers


By MELISSA LATTMAN


LARGO Born and raised to be
service dogs, Nadia and Oakley ac-
company twin brothers Chase and
Connor in their daily adventures.
The 7-year-old boys met their new
canine friends at a special two-week
camp in Georgia where the boys
learned basic and some advanced
commands that the dogs, who are
now approaching 2 years old, have
been gradually learning since the
Canine Assistants were two days
old.
Why did the boys' mother, Lisa
Panish, contact Canine Assistants, a
nonprofit organization that trains
and provides service dogs for chil-
dren and adults with physical dis-


abilities or other special needs?
The dogs have become multi-di-
mensionally something that is total-
ly theirs. They provide physical
support, which Lisa hopes will con-
tinue to be a push to work toward
independence rather than an excuse
to not do something.
"One of the things for me was for
people to see past their disabilities
and see a little boy with his dog in-
stead of a child with a disability,"
Lisa said.
With Oakley and Chase the goal is
to get Chase to walk more indepen-
dently with the help of Oakley in-
stead of a cane or walker.
Both Chase and Connor have a

City helps fund court-ordered visitations
LARGO City commissioners allocated $5,000 April 6
to a nonprofit organization that provides countywide
court-ordered services of supervised visitation between
parents and children.
Community Action Stops Abuse's visitation center pro-
vides a safe environment for parent-child interactions and
prevents children from being exposed to adult issues,
such as court proceedings, city officials said.
Police Chief Lester Aradi said CASA, like many other or-
ganizations in the county, is running short on funding,
and "this is a service that was on the bubble of disappear-
ing."
CASA sought assistance from police chiefs. The city's
allocation will come from police forfeiture funds.
"Some people might say this is the wrong time to give
our money away to another organization," Aradi said.
"What I'd like to point out is if this service goes away,
court-ordered supervision then falls back on local agen-
cies."
Then if the court-ordered supervision takes place in the
police department, the city would have to provide security
for such services and "the cost would be dramatically for
us," Aradi said.
"So we have a strong vested interest in making sure
that CASA survives financially, and they assume and con-
tinue this responsibility rather than it falling back on us,"
Aradi said.
Some other agencies have said they would try to help
out at meetings with CASA representatives.
About 1,200 court-ordered supervised visits are provid-
ed by CASA annually, of which 69 percent are due to do-
mestic violence history and 31 percent are due to mental
health, addiction and other problems.
Largo police estimate that about 10 to 15 percent of the

City approves fee increases
LARGO City commissioners approved an ordinance
April 6 increasing certain fees.
Plat review fees, up to three pages, will increase from
$350 to $500. The annual cost recovery for the city has
averaged $500 for the past two years.
Since the Recreation, Parks and Arts Department is
evaluating the need to increase the annual recreation
membership fee, the two-year membership option was
eliminated to prevent patrons from having the option at
the current rate.
Among other changes, fines for overdue library materi-
als will increase from 10 to 15 cents per day
The approval of the fee ordinance will result in minor in-
crease in revenue for administration and Recreation,
Parks and Arts departments. About $10,000 is expected
in additional revenue from library and police fees.

Victim's advocate to be honored
LARGO Coleen Chaney, a victim's advocate for the Largo
Police Department, will receive the outstanding individual

tion.

federal government for rail projects.
Clifford said he has been encouraged that throughout
the region in the past two years, "people are telling us the
same thing consistently. They are telling us 'you know
what, we hear you, we see the need, we are willing to con-
sider paying for it ... if we think it's of value.' "
'The other thing they tell us is, will you get on with it al-
ready," he said. "We have been talking about it for 30
years in this region. It's time to actually do something."
County Commission Chair Karen Seel said the county is
establishing a transportation task force that will consist of
24 people.
She said it will be modeled after a U.S. Highway 19 task
force she called "extremely successful" that addressed traf-
fic congestion along that corridor.
"You have to have a sticktoitiveness because we com-
pleted the U.S. 19 task force in the year 2000, and here we
are in 2010, but is getting done," she said.
She said that public outreach will be an important part
of the task force's role.
"It is really important to hear what people's ideas are,"
she said.
She said she is hoping that the task force will study op-
tions for about six to 18 months, looking at a referendum
on a 1-cent transit sales tax "whether it can be accom-
plished in 2011 or 2012 or even later."


'The task force will look at all the unfunded needs, from
every mode of transportation," she said.
Forbes Magazine declared the area the "60th, dead last
worst place for congestion and commute," she said.
... I don't want to be dead last, do you?" Seel said.
Largo Community Development Director Carol Stricklin
said the city officials are trying to see how they can take
advantage of the opportunities that regional transit cre-
ates.
The regional transit initiative "really positions the city of
Largo to take advantage of that in terms of redevelopment
and job creation," she said.
The city has launched a series of transportation initia-
tives called "Moving Largo."
As part of its planning, city officials are evaluating what
it needs to create a "walkable, lively urban downtown,
what do we need in terms of transit facilities, what do we
need of pedestrian trails and sidewalks, what do we need
for bicycle trails," Stricklin said.
City officials will present that plan to city commissioners
at a work session in May and hope to adopt it later this
year, she said.
They have had good response from the public in surveys
and at open houses on planning activities, Stricklin said.
"People who have businesses downtown or work in
downtown or live in downtown really get it. They are anx-
ious to talk about how they can use downtown in ways
other than simply driving a car," she said.

form of cerebral palsy, which affects the
muscles of the lower body. Connor has a
milder form of the disease and can walk
independently.
The dogs and boys play throwing and
fetching toys and just kicking back after
a day at school.
How do the dogs know when it is time
to work? The command "dress" causes
Oakley to hold steady and still as Lisa
demonstrates putting the leather har-
ness and green mesh pack on his back.
Wearing the harness, which also serves
as a walking grip for Chase, and the
pack, which contains dog treats, is the
signal that they are working.
The boys feed the dogs and give them
treats. Chase brushes out Oakley with
his long curly hair since he is a golden


doodle.
"You can't help but fall in love with the
dogs when you see what they have done
and what they are doing for your child,
for their soul and their self-esteem and
how they help them get around when
you are not there," Lisa said.
The personalities of the boys and their
dogs are a match. Canine Assistants
learns the personality of each dog and
has applicants supply personality infor-
mation from several people who know
them. Then they introduce the child or
adult to several dogs in the first couple
of days at camp to see, which dog fits
the needs and personality of the person
best.
Nadia is affectionate and very ap-
proachable. Oakley is more of the gentle
giant carefully evaluating the situation, a
quiet but steady and self-assured pres-


ence in the room.
'The dogs are really just an extension
of the boys. An extension of who they are
and their personalities and how they
want to be treated. It can't get any better
than two little boys with their dogs in
their bedrooms at night," Lisa said.
The twins and their dogs will be fea-
tured in a PBS special, 'Through a Dog's
Eyes," which premieres Wednesday,
April 21, 8 p.m. The program shares
more of the specialized training and rela-
tionship building philosophy utilized by
Canine Assistants. The program and tips
on the Web site can help people further
appreciate and develop the relationship
with their own dogs. Check out
www.pbs.org/dogs-eyes.

Canine Assistants visit www.canineas

Lisa Panish contacted Canine Assistants, which provides service
dogs for children. Her son, Chase, is shown here with one of the
dogs.


LEGISLATION, from page 1


Carol Cook, vice chairwoman of the Pinellas County School
Board, said that one of her biggest concerns
is that so many things are unclear about what the details in the
bill mean, how they would be implemented, and how they
would be funded.
"What bothers me about this is not so much whether our
teachers need payment for performance or
whether we need high standards or even tenure," Cook said.
"It's the fact that when you talk to people in Tallahassee,
which we did during spring break, is you couldn't get the
same story about what the bill is or is going to do, and that
concerns me that people are voting for things of which they
don't have a clear picture."
For instance, she said it was not clear as to whether teach-
ers would have their current base salaries and then merit pay
would be on top of that or whether half of their total salaries
would be fixed and the other half would be based on test
scores and student achievement. If it is the former, School
Board member Peggy O'Shea, said that the biggest problem is
that there is zero funding for this. The state was relying on
getting the federal Race to the Top grant for education, but
Florida did not get that in the first round. Therefore, in a year
when school district budgets are being slashed yet again, they
would have to find an additional $20 million to $30 million to
fund the additional pay.
"We understand the state has less revenue coming in than
in past years," O'Shea said. "We understand the economics in-
volved. So why create more spending during these times? In
the last three years, we've cut $104 million out of our budget
in Pinellas County Schools. And we've already identified an-
other $54 million in cuts in this coming year."
If total pay were to be half based on merit pay, that could
cause even more problems, Cook said. In either case, it is un-
clear how student achievement and progress would be deter-
mined, and educators are concerned about its fairness.
Performance pay would be unfair if it is a blanket state-
ment, where each student is supposed to make a year's worth
of progress each year, Cook said, because there are variables
such as non-English speaking students, especially those who
come into the classroom part of the way through the school
year. Furthermore, teachers in schools in poorer areas, where
there are more parents who are not involved in their children's
education, would be deeply hurt by this, she said.
However, if there was a more personalized rating of success,
she said, say where an FCAT-level-1 student in a poor school
were to supposed to get up to a 1.5 or a 1.7 and then a level-3
student in a wealthy school or gifted program was supposed
to get to a level 4, that could be deemed more fair.
"I think the public needs to know that teachers are not
afraid of accountability," Cook said. 'They put more pressure
on themselves to make sure students achieve than this bill
puts on them, but I don't think we should add the insecurity
of not knowing what they're going to be paid this year. Most
people know going in that This is what I'm going to get paid
this year.' Teachers don't work on commission. ... How can
you plan for your future, how can you plan a budget, how can
you plan for your family if you don't know how much you'll


make from year to year?"
Whereas people who work on commission have some con-
trol over how well they do, Cook said, teachers are assigned a
school and assigned a set of students and they have to do
their best to help them achieve the best that they can do, but
that is different depending on the specific situation.
O'Shea agreed that the School Board does not oppose all
merit pay, but it should be done in the right way.
"If they want us to do performance pay, then let us figure
out how to do it, but don't tie our hands in the process,"
O'Shea said.
Teachers at the protest April 8 voiced their concerns about
the bill. Helen Tait of Safety Harbor and a social studies
teacher at Countryside High School said she showed up to
protest because students should be No. 1 and that teachers
mean more than tests.
"(If the bill passed,) I think it would make a lot of teachers
in education feel underappreciated, devalued and disrespect-
ed," Tait said. "We're professionals. We have to support educa-
tion in Florida. There shouldn't be such animosity towards
us."
Jennifer Luther of Palm Harbor and a chemistry teacher at
Countryside High said she thinks the bill is neither a good
deal for the teachers nor the students of Florida and that
teachers want to be effective in the classroom, and this would
not help.
"I think it will do more harm than good, and I think it will
take a generation to overcome," Luther said. "We have col-
leagues standing out here who would not be teaching here
anymore if this goes through."
Luther added that this is going to hurt college students who
were planning to major in education many of them will prob-
ably either change their major or else teach in a state other
than Florida, she said. She hoped that Gov. Crist would take
note of the protest, especially given his Pinellas County roots,
and veto the bill.
Meredith McGlamery of Holiday and an English honors
teacher at Countryside said fear brought her to the protest.
She said the bill could hurt public schools as a whole.
"I think in 10 years we'd have maybe half the public schools
we have now," McGlamery said. "People are touting vouchers,
but transportation will not get those kids to private schools. I
think it would destroy our future, and we need help with that
already."
McGlamery said many teachers would have to leave the
state, which makes her sad since she is a Floridian and has
lived here her entire life.
Christine Peppers of Dunedin and an English teacher at
Dunedin High said she worries whether she and her husband,
also a teacher at Dunedin High, would be able to afford to re-
main in Florida if the bill is signed. She and her husband,
Paul, came to Florida from Michigan four years ago to teach,
but she worries they would have to move back up north.
"It's really too bad because we like it down here, but it's a
problem, and I also worry about my future children going to
these schools (if the bill passes,)" Peppers said. "I hope the
protest really opens Gov. Crist's eyes and he doesn't sign the
bill. As teachers, we know there are a lot of things wrong with
the schools, but this is definitely not going to help. Linking

Bill 6.
teachers' salaries to student test scores is going to force a lot
of good teachers out."
Richard Wisemiller of Clearwater Beach and vice president
of the Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association said there
wouldn't be any quality teachers left in the state under this
bill, especially because there would be no incentive to get
higher education and training.
'This is the biggest insult to educators in Pinellas County
and all of Florida," Wisemiller said. "I really can't understand
who would want to work here anymore if they pass this bill.
They are taking everything we have worked for all our careers
and making all of it contingent upon a child's test score."
O'Shea and Cook agreed that the bill would not encourage
young people in Florida to pursue careers in education or to
teach in the state, at least until all the kinks are worked out.
"I think unless they have an absolute burning desire to be a
teacher, I think people would be hesitant for a while to see
how this plays out," Cook said. "... But when you have a lot of
people from which to pick, then you really can get the best
and the brightest teachers."
Both also said they were going to contact Crist and ask him
to veto the bill until a better and clearer one can be worked
out.
Gov. Crist said in a statement that he planned to take the
full seven days to make a decision, as he has gotten more feed-
back on this bill than on any other since he has been gover-
nor.
Whatever happens, O'Shea said the district would keep
doing their jobs and trying to be as fair as possible.
"Ultimately, we will do whatever we have to do, and we're
going to focus on the kids, but it will make things more diffi-
cult," O'Shea said.

GOLF COURSE, from page 1
stagnant economy, there has to be a reason for the golf course's
financial woes, she said.
"We need to step up our marketing plan," she said.
The communications and marketing staff is working with the golf
course staff to develop a marketing plan, city officials said.
For fiscal year 2011, a transfer of about $150,000 from the city's
operating budget for the golf course fund will probably be required
and $100,000 in 2012, said Amy Davis, city budget manager.
The 18-hole course is located on Vonn Road, between Walsingham
and Wilcox roads.
The discussion came at the end of a review of the city's proposed
five-year capital improvements program. Among the projects that has
stirred debate is the proposed reconstruction of the $15.8 million
Highland Recreation Complex slated for the next fiscal year.
Commissioner Mary Black reiterated her stance against borrowing
funds to build a new Highland Recreation Complex. She said she
would rather not build it until the city has the money in its budget.
The current Highland Recreation Complex, which was built in
1972 and is located on Highland Avenue, has leaks and other struck
tural problems, city officials said. Major renovations and improve-
ments have been deferred for the last several years in anticipation of
reconstruction.
Among other major projects in the $151.4 million capital improve-
ments program are sewer reconstruction work, $68 million; a fire sta-
tion relocation, $3.4 million; and a city telephone system
replacement, $850,000.

Unsolved murders focus of six
new billboards
Law enforcement agencies around Pinellas are using a new
tool to generate leads for six unsolved homicide cases.
Thanks to a partnership between Crime Stoppers of Pinellas
County and Clear Channel Outdoor, billboards are going up
throughout the county spotlighting the victims and case infor-
mation.
Local law enforcement agencies including the Pinellas Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office, Clearwater Police Department, Pinellas Park
Police Department and the St. Petersburg Police Department
are asking anyone with information to get in touch with Crime
Stoppers.
To share information, remain anonymous and be eligible for
a reward, call 1-800-TIPS (8477) or visit www.CrimeStoppersof
Pinellas.org.
The goal of the billboards is to help generate new leads in
these homicides currently classified as code cases.
The National Institute of Justice currently defines a cold case
as any case whose probative investigative leads have been ex-
hausted. According to its Web site, this means a case that is
only a few months old may be defined as being "cold."
The six new billboards contain information on the following
unsolved homicides.
Gary and Sally Smith were murdered in their home on
Drew Street in Clearwater on Sept. 2, 1989. The billboard is lo-
cated on Nursery Road, west of U.S. 19 in Clearwater.
Jack LaGrand, a Clearwater cab driver was found shot to
death inside his taxi on Sept. 17, 2008. His billboard is at State
Road 580, east of Belcher Road in Dunedin.
Thomas Galliher was found shot to death inside his home
in Pinellas Park on May 9, 2008. The billboard is at 49th Street
North, south of 118th Avenue North in Pinellas Park.
Cabretti Wheeler and Kyle Ellis were murdered during a
shooting at a St. Petersburg business on Sept. 6, 2008. The
billboard is at 28th Street South, south of Eighth Avenue South
in St. Petersburg.
Jean Ault was found floating in the water off Coquina Key
State Park on March 23, 2002. She died from upper body trau-
ma. The billboard is at 34th Street South, north of Fourth Av-

Fire reveals marijuana grow operation
LARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs Narcotics detectives are
investigating a late night fire at the American Business Center,
8300 Ulmerton Road in Largo, where marijuana grow operation
was discovered.
According to a report from the sheriffs office, Pinellas County
Sheriffs Forensic Science Specialist Sandee Jacobs noticed
smoke coming from one of the buildings at the American Busi-
ness Center, and called for fire rescue at around 11:30 p.m.
April 8. Firefighters responded and found the fire coming from
unit #108.
Once the fire was extinguished, firefighters found a room in-
side the unit dedicated to growing marijuana and contacted
deputies, the report said.
Sheriffs Office narcotics detectives took over the investiga-
tion. Detectives seized 43 marijuana plants with a weight of
about 100 pounds and an approximate street value of
$120,000. Also seized was the equipment used to grow the
marijuana indoors, which is believed to have caused the fire.
Detectives want to highlight the dangers of such indoor grow
operations. The chemicals and the high heat light bulbs used to
produce marijuana plants indoors can have deadly conse-
quences. Had this fire gone undetected, the entire complex may
have become engulfed in flames very quickly, the report said. It
is a danger to the public as well as the first responders.
In this case, no one was injured since the unit appears to
have been unoccupied at the time of the fire.
No suspects have been identified; however, detectives are ac-
tively investigating and arrests may be forthcoming.

The incident occurred at about 8:06 p.m. at the intersec-
tion of 113th Street and 102nd Avenue.
According to deputies, two vehicles were headed north-
bound on 113th Street. As they were both stopped at a red
light at Park Boulevard, 17-year-old Sterling Goodloe, of 3121
Mary L. Road, Clearwater, who was a back seat passenger in
a 2001 BMW, threw some trash out of the window.
Troy McKenna, 47, of 5647 Bayview Drive, Seminole, who
was a passenger in the other vehicle, became angry and start-
ed to yell at Goodloe.
Both vehicles continued on, with insults and profanities
yelled back and forth as both swerved through traffic.
Deputies say the driver of McKenna's vehicle (McKenna's wife)
attempted to stay back, to allow the BMW to proceed and
leave.
At the intersection of 113th Street and 102nd Avenue, the
BMW came to a stop. McKenna's vehicle was just behind it.
Deputies say McKenna got out of his vehicle and approached
the BMW.
At that point, the passengers of the BMW, Goodloe and 17
year-old Brandon Harvey of 3121 Mary L. Road, Clearwater,
exited the vehicle and a physical altercation began between
the two parties. According to deputies, Goodloe and Harvey
punched and kicked McKenna repeatedly.
McKenna suffered serious injuries and was transported by
air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment.
Goodloe and Harvey got back into the BMW and fled the
scene with 26-year-old Miranda Coyle, 5911 110th Way N.,
Seminole, still at the wheel.
During the course of their investigation, deputies were able
to track the BMW through tag information provided by the
victims, and subsequently identified and contacted the sus-
pects who agreed to return to the scene.
Goodloe and Harvey were arrested for felony aggravated
battery and were transported to the Pinellas Juvenile Assess-
ment Center.
Coyle was arrested for accessory after the fact. She was
transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further inci-
dent.
The investigation continues.

Motorists should
stop at crosswalk
Editor:
What does one have to do to get a motorist
to stop for a pedestrian on Eighth Avenue
Southwest at the crosswalk at Taylor Park
near Pinecrest Drive? You see my friend and
I walk her dog there most every day and
when it comes to crossing Eighth Avenue
Southwest, I cannot believe how many peo-
ple do not stop. Even with myself holding,
leaning against the crosswalk sign in either
my bright fluorescent-green T-shirt or blue
sweat shirt, neither which cannot be missed
as they are so bright. I cannot get over the
number of drivers that do not stop, and keep
on going, although the speed limit is only 30
mph and posted as such you would think it
was 50 mph or 55 mph the way they drive.
I realize everyone is in a hurry these days,
but in a hurry to get to where I must ask
myself? To that red light up ahead or that
television show that is about to start and
you forgot to set your DVR, or that you need
to get somewhere you should of been 10
minutes ago. So you're in a hurry. Please, all
we are asking for is a few seconds not even
a full minute to be allowed to cross the
street safely and so that we too can get to
where we want to go, whether it's the walk in
the Taylor Park or home to cook dinner; we
too want to enjoy our life.
So please, the next time you see myself
and my friend walking her dog on Eighth Av-
enue Southwest or anyone walking and try-
ing to cross at any crosswalk (not all
crosswalks have blinking lights) please stop
and allow us to cross the street. We will wave
and thank you for taking time out of your
busy day to allow us to cross safely and you
too will feel better that you did. Oh, and you
might be thinking to yourself or your spouse
and saying, "That's the young ones for you"
if you mean the ones over 60, you are right;
they are the worse for driving right past us!
Have a great day.

Public option needed for
property insurance
Editor:
Florida needs a single payer insurance
program for property insurance.
The real problem Citizens is the public
option of last resort. If the Legislature would
let them cut prices in half they would quick-
ly become the insurance company of first re-
sort. And be able to put the tens of billions of
dollars in a state reserve fund. In other
words Florida needs to change Citizens into


a single payer option for property insurance
just like state retirement system. This is the
only way to reduce insurance costs to an af-
fordable level for property owners in Florida.
The incestuous relationship between our
state legislators and big insurance has im-
poverished home owners. A true public op-
tion for property insurance is the only
answer for Florida's insurance starved, hur-
ricane-lashed property owners.

Supports cafe operator
Editor:
When I was visiting in Largo the last few
months I had the pleasure of attending the
library 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
successful, 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 termi-
nate a proven success to seek a new and un-
known operator.

Needed:
If ever an institution was
ripe for revolution, it's today's
Roman Catholic Church.
It has been 493 years since
the Catholic priest and the-
ologian Martin Luther nailed
his 95 theses to the church
door in Wittenberg. Luther
and many others of that day
were protesting the church's
sale of indulgences the
granting of forgiveness in ex-
change for money.
Today, such a practice
seems almost petty com-
pared to the sexual and ethi-
cal corruption that has
attached itself to the modern
church.
Luther's insurrection was
met by his being excommuni-
cated by Pope Leo X. The re-
formation followed, splitting
the RCC asunder. In the past
decade, a new rift has oc-
curred in the church. It
began about 2002 in Boston,
where the daily newspaper
turned up evidence that hun-
dreds of boys and girls had
been molested by priests.
The resulting scandal and
lawsuits have cost the
church millions of dollars
and resulted in the shutting
down of churches through-
out the city.
In recent months, addi-
tional rocks have been
turned over in Ireland, Wis-
consin, Germany and in
Rome itself. Pedophile priests
have slithered out. Emerging
with them has come evidence
of cover-ups by the papal hi-
erarchy, perhaps including
Pope Benedict XVI himself.
Today it seems impossible
not to believe that thousands
- perhaps millions of dis-
gusted Catholics are wishing
for the appearance of a new
leader, a man or woman who
will declare permanent and
absolute independence from
the rule of Rome. What a
beautiful sight that would be
- a worldwide throng of RCC

worshippers who still believe
in many of the tenets and
ceremonies of the Catholic
faith, but who refuse to par-
ticipate any longer in an
unquestioning, sheeplike
obedience to the Pope and
his scarlet-robed princes.
The new Catholic church,
should it come, would surely
open up the priesthood to
women. Marriage of priests
would be not only permitted
but encouraged. The perver-
sion known as priestly
celibacy would be forever
ended. So would the protec-
tion and cover-ups historical-
ly shown to priests and nuns
who, by disregarding their
sacred vows, have brought
shame to the church and to
the thousands of its upright
servants.
But even as I write these
critical words, I'm overtaken
by the thought that perhaps
too much is already being
written and said about the
RCC today. My opinions and
those of many other observers
will not resolve the problems
of the RCC. It seems to me
that enough revelations and
charges have come forth to
showcase the church's fail-
ings, as well as its good
points. So why don't we all
shut the hell up for awhile,
and see what happens?
One result could be that
the ensuing silence might
trigger the civil authorities to
bolder actions. In many
cases of church controversies
(Catholic, Protestant and
what-have-you) secular law
enforcement agencies have
trod too carefully, under the
assumption that the church
should or would deal with its

own troubles. This has al-
lowed many culprits to go
free, or be quietly transferred
to another parish.
I'm not familiar with the
protocols of the Vatican and
the Italian government, but
it might be edifying if one day
a caravan of Italian law en-
forcement officers, with war-
rants in hand, should roll
into St. Peter's Square and
demand access to the Pope
and the august members of
his inner circle.
Another continuing outfall
of the RCC's scandals will
probably be a steady defec-
tion of rank-and-file worship-
pers. Has anyone performed
a detailed study of how many
Catholics have left the
church since 2002?
It might be difficult to pin
down the exact number.
Equally revealing, if they
were attainable, would be the
figures on declining financial
support from all sources.
No one knows when or
how the travail and turmoil
of today's Catholic Church
will end. Possibly the next
chapter of this saga will
begin with the death of the
present Pope, who is 83 and
in failing health. The selec-
tion of his successor will be
an indicator of how seriously
the College of Cardinals re-
gards the problem of way-
ward priests and the bishops
who have tolerated them.
Of one thing we can be
sure: As always, the Vatican
will survive, largely unper-
turbed by the current
brouhaha or any others that
may follow. The church
thinks in terms of centuries.
It knows full well how time
can wash away unpleasant
episodes and obliterate the
church's enemies. Sweet are
the uses of an eternal view-
point.

Pet home hospice, closing the circle


He came home with us
just eight months ago. His
paperwork at the Humane
Society of Pinellas said his
name was George, and it
seemed to suit him.
At 14 1/2 years he was
well past his prime and
looked every one of his years
spent on the streets of
Clearwater with his home-
less companion. George's
owner had surrendered him
in 2009 with the note, "I
can't take care of him any-
more."
George was a Blue Heeler.
Neither my wife, Nancy, nor
I had ever seen one before -
they're the breed in those
"Blue Dog" paintings. Silent,
we only heard him bark
once. He never asked for
anything. We knew he was
self-reliant and still the ever
fast companion, despite his
crippling arthritis.
The veterinarian said he
had probably been struck by
a bike which had left his hip
badly healed and his legs
bent; the arthritis made


walking difficult bad when
you live on the street.
After six months at the
Humane Society, no one
had shown any interest in
adopting George. He could
have lived out the rest of
his life there among others
like himself, unwanted, dis-
carded, no place to go.
When we saw him, he didn't
ask, he just came with us.
When Nancy took him out
to see his new backyard he
had to be carried up and
down the stairs she said
his eyes got as big as
saucers on seeing and per-
haps smelling grass and the
small lake beyond. It was a
good place to take care of
business and explore, and
just generally do dog things,
all the while ignoring his
three adopted brothers. He
ran or what passed for run-
ning; imagine Walter Bren-
nan going full out.
George had a bed and an
indoor emergency relief sta-
tion which he always got to
in time. He was fastidious


Harlan
Weikle


and would nose his bed cov-
ers until they were just so.
He slept a lot.
He liked to sneak into the
laundry room and help him-
self to the cat's food, when
that wasn't available a dried
sweet potato stick suited
George just fine.
One night recently George
ignored his food and showed
no interest in getting out of
bed.
The next day George
couldn't stand without sup-
port and by early afternoon
his temperature began to
drop; we took him to the
emergency clinic.
George was leaving us and
there was only one thing left
for us to do, the only thing
he would ever ask us for.
The doctor gave him a
pain shot and we took him


home for the second time.
We called our friend, Dr.
Dani McVety.
I met Dr. McVety at a Vet-
erinary Hospice Symposium
last summer in California.
She was a newly minted vet-
erinarian then who had not
yet begun her practice.
When she did it was to be a
mobile veterinary hospice
care. That's all she once told
me she had ever wanted to
do.
Dani asked a few ques-
tions, told Nancy what we
needed to be aware of, and
said she would be on call if
George needed her.
We slept downstairs with
George that night, which
passed peacefully. He slept
hard maybe it was the pain
medication, perhaps he was
just content to be in his own
bed.
At 11 the next morning we
called Dani. She asked how
he was doing we thought
he was doing better, but
knew it was wishful think-
ing.


Dani arrived later that af-
ternoon to help George. It
wasn't awful or scary; Dani
was gentle, George seemed
to be at peace, surrounded
by his family and in his own
bed.
George left us his life's
circle complete, he was
home.

What? No showers on

commuter trains?


If you have an original,
bona fide argument against
plans for a high-speed rail
system in Florida, lay it on
me.
Here's what I've heard over
the years:
"It's going to be expensive to
build."
Yupper.
"It's going to be expensive to
operate."
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
"People are not going to give
up there cars."
Even if gas costs $5 a gal-
lon.
OK, all the above are valid
arguments.
But try this on for size:
"High-speed rail is suscepti-
ble to terrorist attacks."
Brilliant!
Of course they are and so
are highways, government of-
fices, universities, theme
parks, airports, bus stations,
stadiums, cathedrals, muse-
ums, parks, prisons, bridges,
and water treatment plants.
Oops, Homeland Security is
calling. I've divulged too much
information here.
The feds have been watch-
ing me ever since I was 8
years old. My buddy and I
plotted to topple the Castro
regime. We were going to send
ol' fuzzy face a box of exploding
cigars.
Couldn't afford the postage,
though.
Sorry, I've gotten side-
tracked.
Now comes my favorite lame
anti-rail argument: It's too hot
in Florida.
According to some think-
tank talker at the University of
South Florida's Center for
Urban Transportation Re-
search, most of the large cities
within a rail system are locat-
ed in milder, more sustainable
climates where a "one-mile
walk to the rail station is invig-
orating."
Not so in Florida, he wrote,
alluding to the heat.
What say you Chicagoians?
Last time I was up there, my
friends and I rode commuter
trains back and forth from
downtown to Wrigley Field in
August, in the heat, humidity
and rain.
What? It gets sticky in
Chicago?


X Tom
Germond


The trains were packed,
and, based on a quick obser-
vation, I don't think they had
bathrooms on the trains,
much less showers. And, as I
suspected, sweat didn't dis-
criminate; you were perspiring
whether you were a Florida
Gators, St. Louis Cardinals or
a Chicago Cubs fan.
We met a friend who rode
the train for 90 minutes, from
the outskirts of Chicago, just
to avoid the traffic and the
hassle of trying to find a place
to park.
Washington, D.C.? I've rid-
den trains there when it's hot
and cold, along with men and
women in suits, military per-
sonnel and tourists like my-
self. When I was in the D.C.
area in October 2002, the Belt-
way snipers were on the loose.
Nevertheless, people went
about their lives, waiting in
shelters for buses, walking to
the Metro stations, boarding
and deboarding the trains, a
steady stream of people deter-
mined to go about their lives
even though they could be sit-
ting ducks.
They did what they had to
do whether or not they were
invigorated.
I would gladly ride a train
from Pinellas County to Orlan-
do to attend a business meet-
ing at 10 a.m. to avoid dealing
with morning rush hour traffic
in Pinellas County, Tampa and
Orlando. Three weeks ago, I
spent the night with friends in
the Orlando area so I wouldn't
have to leave here at 7 a.m. or
earlier to get to my meeting.
My company reimbursed me
for mileage for the business
trip, but the expected cost of
riding a train from Tampa to
Orlando would be cheaper.
And just being stuck in Or-
lando afternoon rush-hour
traffic after the meeting, taking
20 minutes to get through one
busy intersection and encoun-
tering heavy traffic elsewhere,
gave me time to think.
Suffice it to say, the experi-
ence was less than invigorat-
ing.

Experts: Atlantic hurricane season could be busy


By SUZETTE PORTER


Early predictions are calling for the 2010 Atlantic hurricane
season to be a busy one.
Philip Klotzbach and William Gray, scientists at the Depart-
ment of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University, is-
sued a report on April 7 that said they foresee above-average
activity for the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season.
AccuWeather meteorologists concurred in a report issued
April 8 with Joe Bastardi, chief long-range meteorologist and
hurricane forecaster, saying the 2010 season will be much
more active with above-normal threats on the U.S. coastline.
The experts from Colorado are predicting that 15 named
storms will form this season, eight hurricanes and four intense
hurricanes, Category 3 or above.
Bastardi's team is forecasting 16 to 18 tropical storms with
15 of them forming in the western Atlantic of Gulf of Mexico
and becoming a threat to land. AccuWeather experts also say
seven of the storms will make landfall. Five will be hurricanes
and two or three will by major landfalls in the United States,
they said.
Gray and Klotzbach predict landfall probability of 69 percent
for the entire U.S. coastline. The average for the last century is
52 percent. They said there is a 45 percent chance that a hurri-
cane will make landfall on the U.S. East Coast including Flori-
da. The average for the last century is 31 percent. The
probability for the Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle west-
ward to Brownsville is 44 percent. The average for the last cen-

under Online Only Content.

tury is 30 percent.
The probability of at least one major hurricane, Category 3 or
above, making landfall in the Caribbean is 58 percent. The av-
erage for the last century is 42 percent.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
The experts give several reasons for their predictions, includ-
ing weakening El Nino conditions, strong unusual warming of
the tropical Atlantic, which were the two main factors consid-
ered by Gray and Klotzbach.
Bastardi added two additional conditions: weakening trade
winds and higher humidity levels, which he says make for more
favorable conditions for storms to develop and strengthen.

Hurricane names
The National Hurricane Center released its list of storm
names for the 2010 season. If the experts are right, the public
can expect to be introduced to Alex, Bonnie, Colin, Danielle,
Earl, Fiona, Gaston, Hermine, Igor, Julia, Karl, Lisa, Matthew,


Nicole, Otto, Paula, Richard and Shary the first 18 names on
the list. The others are Tomas, Virginie and Walter.
If more than 21 named storms form, the additional storms
will take names from the Greek alphabet, starting with Alpha.

Forecast changes
The NHC made several changes in the way tropical weather
will be forecast in 2010.
Watches and warnings along threatened coastal areas will be
issued 12 hours earlier than past years. Tropical storm watch-
es will be issued within 48 hours, and tropical storm warnings
will be issued when adverse conditions are expected within 36
hours.
Another change involves the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
Scale, which the NHC said would become operational this year.
The scale keeps the same wind speed ranges but no longer ties
specific storm surge and flooding effects to each category.
One additional change concerns the size of the forecast cone,
which represents the probable track of the center of the storm.
As the season draws closer, more experts will be making sea-
sonal predictions with the NHC's forecast coming in late May.
Regardless of the forecast, experts advise residents to be pre-
pared, to make a hurricane plan now and be ready before the
first storm comes.

New unit deals with prescription drugs epidemic


By THOMAS MICHALSKI


The head of the Pinellas County Sheriffs
Office narcotics division said prescription
drugs doled out by pain clinics, shady doctors
and street pushers are killing more than one
county resident each day, and a solution to
the ever growing pill problem will worsen be-
fore it gets better.
Capt. Robert Alfonso, a 28-year veteran of
the sheriffs office, 16 of them in the narcotics
division, said 376 men, women and children
died of prescription drug overdose during fis-
cal 2008-09. Another 55 suspected drug over-
doses have not yet been determined as such
by the Pinellas County Medical Examiner's Of-
fice.
"Combine the two figures and that adds up
to more than 400 prescription deaths in one
year," Alfonso said.
Worse, Alfonso predicts that once state law-
makers eventually give law enforcement the
tools they need to pull the reins on prescrip-
tion drug abuse, those addicted to pain killers
such as oxycodone will then turn to stronger
drugs to satisfy their cravings.
To cope with the prescription drug epidemic,
which is the designation many use to term the
problem, the Sheriffs Office launched a new
unit within the narcotics squad. Dubbed the
Strategic Diversion Unit, it was created last
fall. The 10-person squad headed by Sgt. Dan
Zsido goes after organized groups that pur-
chase large quantities of legally prescribed
drugs for illicit distribution to pre-teens,
teenagers, adults and even senior citizens.
'The unit doesn't go after the users," Alfonso
said. "We concentrate on doctor shoppers, pre-
scription fraud, the pain clinics and doctors
who make pain killers and other drugs so
readily available, and organized groups that
bring thousands of pills into Pinellas County
each year."
To further fight the pill problems, law en-
forcement agencies have formed a countywide
task force representing local police depart-
ments such as Largo and Clearwater, the Drug
Enforcement Administration, FBI and other
government agencies. The goal is to work to-
gether, exchange information and do whatever
it takes to get pills off the streets.
The Sheriffs Office also launched the suc-
cessful "Operation Medicine Cabinet" that al-


Persons with information regarding the sale and/or the distribution of
illegal prescription medications are urged to call the Sheriff's Office at
582-2828 or Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 1-800-873-TIPS.


lows residents to dispose of expired and other
prescription drugs with no questions asked.
The Sheriffs Office has been instrumental
in making numerous arrests of organized pill
pushers. Three weeks ago two men and a
woman were arrested in Pinellas Park and
Treasure Island as part of a major distribution
ring that specialized in pain killers. They al-
legedly used a network of men and women
who would get prescriptions for back pains
and other ailments from doctors and clinics.
Alfonso said the prescriptions and even false
identifications were created on a laptop com-
puter. The so-called "patients" would be paid
in a small amount of pills from their booty.
The remainder of the pills would be sold on
the streets for between $15 and $20 each.
The fake prescriptions included a doctor's
name, an address, a phone number and even
a Drug Enforcement Administration number.
The phone number would always be the same.
Calls to verify prescriptions were answered by
the same individual. In most cases that tele-
phone verification is all that is required for a
drug store to fill a script.
Most combatants in the war against pre-
scription pills are quick to note that pharma-
cies used for illicit pill purchases are smaller
operations and not heavy hitters such at Wal-
green's and CVS. Some pain clinics, too, fill
prescriptions. The transactions are always
cash so the clinics are not under state regula-
tions.
Alfonso said some organized pill operations
have up to 200 and even 300 people on their
payroll. A good day of doctors shopping and
getting prescriptions filled can net $10,000-a-
day.
"You get a lot of unemployed people in the
business," Alfonso said. 'There is big money to
be made."
Most pill operations consist of transients
who work out of motel and hotel rooms. Some-
times violence erupts, as in one case where a
doctor shopper thought the operation had

cheated him. The shopper showed up at a
motel room, pistol whipped the occupants and
destroyed a laptop computer with a single
gunshot.
The way the pill trade works begins with a
list of shady doctors and clinics that see the
"patients" and then prescribe pain killers or
other medications. Those folks then write
scripts and are sent to pharmacies and other
places that will fill them. The cash and/or pills
are exchanged and everybody goes home
happy.
Everybody, that is, except for the addict.
'There are multi-tier organizations out there
that include all types of people doing different
jobs within the group," Alfonso said.
That means the shoppers, the sales people
that get rid of the pills and even recruiters who
seek out and hire people for the very shady
business of pill pushing.
While Pinellas County and its surrounding
areas have a major prescription medication
problem, it still is not as great as in the

Broward, Miami and Dade areas. Pinellas
County ranks fourth in the state of illicit pill
pushing. Hillsborough County ranks fifth.
Alfonso, like other law officers, government
agencies and support organizations such as
Narcotics Overdose Prevention Education of
Pinellas County, feels that the state legislature
is just coming around to passing important
bills vital to combat the pill problem.
But are Tallahassee lawmakers doing
enough?
Last year lawmakers approved legislation
that creates electronic monitoring of prescrip-
tion drugs. It will, when finally launched, give
doctors and others the opportunity to track
prescriptions and put an end to doctor shop-
ping. However, lawmakers did not approve any
method of financing the program and left it up
to the bill's advocates to seek federal and pri-
vate funds.
"It will take $1.5 million to launch the elec-
tronic monitoring program and another
$750,000 to $850,000 annually to keep it in
operation," Alfonso said.
About 30 states already have a monitoring
operation in existence.
Persons with information regarding the sale
and/or the distribution of illegal prescription
medications are urged to call the Sheriffs Of-
fice at 582-2828 or Crime Stoppers of Pinellas
County at 1-800-873-TIPS.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:

Bad Breath It's a Killer!
I I .. 11i i ..Ii .. i,. ill, was just a problem for your confidence, think again.
Bad breath is often caused by the bacteria of gum disease. In fact, periodontal disease
is a common source of halitosis with the odor being so distinctive that many dentist
can diagnose it from the smell alone!
If Your Breath Stinks, Your Health Might Stink Too
Bad breath certainly isn't attractive and it can
harm both relationships and career and while
it is ruining life, it also could be ruining your
health! The bacteria that cause gum disease
don't just stay in your mouth. They can enter
the bloodstream and circulate through your
entire body!
More and more studies are showing critical
links between gum health and whole body
health, not only because high bacteria levels can
compromise your health, but also because of the
byproducts generated. Studies published in the
New England Journal of Medicine report that the effects from periodontal disease can
cause the liver to make proteins such as C-reactive protein.
This protein is one of the main markers in all kinds of inflammation that can
increase the risk of blood clots and, according to a new study from Harvard,
pancreatic cancer. This study shows that men with gum disease were 63 percent more
likely to develop pancreatic cancer when compared with those with no gum problems.
Gum disease also has direct links to stroke, heart attack, elevated blood sugar and
diabetes, poor circulation, complications during pregnancy, even wrinkles and erectile
dysfunction! It is amazing how much this infection in your mouth can affect the rest
of your body.
Get Fresh Get Beautiful Get Healthy
So freshen up it might not only save your reputation and keep you from getting as
many wrinkles it may just save your life!

DoYou 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),
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 forI
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 I
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.

Opening this week

Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence team up in the comedy 'Death at a Funeral'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE
A number of new movie releases will hit theaters this week,
including the following films opening in wide release:

'Death at a Funeral'
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Danny
Glover, Regina Hall and James Marsden
Director: Neil LaBute
Rated: R
Directed by Neil LaBute, "Death at a Funeral" is a hilarious
day in the life of an American family that has come together to
put a beloved husband and father to rest.
As mourners gather at the family home, shocking revela-
tions, festering resentments, ugly threats, blackmail and a mis-
directed corpse unleash lethal and riotous mayhem.

'Kick-Ass'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark
Strong, Chloe Grace Moretz and Nicolas Cage
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Rated: R
"How come nobody's ever tried to be a superhero?"
When Dave Lizewski ordinary New York teenager and
rabid comic-book geek dons a green-and-yellow Internet-
bought wetsuit to become the no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-
Ass, he soon finds an answer to his own question:
because it hurts.
But, overcoming all the odds, the eager yet inexperi-
enced Dave quickly becomes a phenomenon, capturing
the imagination of the public. However, he's not the only


superhero out there the fearless and highly-trained fa-
ther-daughter crime-fighting duo, Big Daddy and Hit-Girl
have been slowly but surely taking down the criminal em-
pire of local Mafioso, Frank D'Amico. And, as Kick-Ass
gets drawn into their no-holds-barred world of bullets and
bloodletting with Frank's son, Chris, now reborn as Kick-
Ass's arch-nemesis, Red Mist the stage is set for a final
showdown between the forces of good and evil in which
the DIY hero will have to live up to his name ... or die try-
ing.

The following will open in limited release.

'The Joneses'
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: David Duchovny, Demi Moore, Amber Heard, Gary
Cole and Ben Hollingsworth
Director: Derrick Borte
Rated: R
If ever there was a film that was perfectly attuned to the
current Zeitgeist, it would be 'The Joneses."
First-time writer/director Derrick Borte imbues a serious
core theme the wobbly undercurrents of a frenetic con-
sumer culture with humor, warmth and shots of clever,
zesty fun.
Demi Moore and David Duchovny star as a seemingly
perfect couple who, along with their equally perfect
teenagers Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth move
into an upscale gated community. The Joneses have better
goods and game than any other family in town. The only
problem is they're not a family they are employees of a
stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make
everyone else want what they've got.

'The Perfect Game'
Genre: Drama and sports
Cast: Clifton Collins Jr., Cheech Marin, Jake T. Austin,
Emilie de Ravin and Moises Arias
Director: William Dear
Rated: PG
Based on the extraordinary true story of the 1957 Mon-
terrey Industrials Little League Team, "The Perfect Game" is
the inspiring tale of how a sandlot baseball team finds itself
on a once-in-a lifetime journey.
Originally armed with the dream of playing one Little
League game on U.S. soil, the young team members defy a
total lack of resources, disapproving parents, and wide-
spread prejudice as they travel across the border to South-
ern Texas, and beyond. Relying only on their faith and love
of the game, the team finally finds it's way to Williamsport,

Dresden faces stunning revelations in Butcher's 'Changes'


Chicago's only professional wizard private
detective returns in Jim Butcher's "Changes,"
which hit book stores April 6.
Revelations? The 12th book in the series
opens with a startling disclosure for Harry
Dresden a shocking eye-opener that comes
attached to a plea for help.


A
S' ^
i c


The messenger is none other than Susan Rodriguez, Dres-
den's former lover. Their relationship was cut short when she
was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her
own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court.
Now the Red Court duchess Arianna Ortega has discovered
a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it against
Harry. So severe and personal is the threat that in this in-
stallment of Butcher's popular series, Dresden is pushed to
the edge, struggling against his moral compass, fully cog-
nizant of the fact that to accomplish his objective, he may
have to tap into dark powers he has always avoided on princi-
ple.


Even when enraged and consumed by the
ff the trials that beset him, the character who is
Off the equal parts Gandalf and Philip Marlowe re-
Shelf tains his wry sarcasm and gallows humor.
e Clark Zumpe Butcher is one of the few writers in the field
who can successfully intersperse comedy in
otherwise nerve-racking, nail-biting passages
without diluting the action or staggering the pace.
Butcher also reflects the complexities of real-world diplo-
macy in "Changes." Dresden's apprentice, early on in the
novel, muses "what if they're serious about making peace,"
while her immediate superior immediately doubts the inten-
tions of the White Council's foe. She is scolded for her
naivety, but her remark demonstrates a narrow-mindedness
of long-established authority as contrasted by a tolerance of
new concepts by younger generations a theme that is found
throughout the series.
This is one of those books that lives up to "page-turner" de-
scription, with nearly every chapter culminating in some kind

of cliffhanger, be it physical danger or some sudden discovery
or admission. Butcher cleverly colonizes the pages with char-
acters and references that stretch all the way back to the be-
ginning of the series and he summons up a number of new
powerful players, as well, some straight from the pages of the
world mythology.
The previous book in the series, 'Turn Coat," hit No. 1 on
the New York Times bestseller list last year, demonstrating
the growing appreciation for this unique series. While
"Changes" does not exactly serve as a direct sequel to "Turn
Coat," it surpasses it in terms of tension and exhilaration,
referencing points made throughout the series as it races at
breakneck speed toward a much-anticipated confrontation.

"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! ww a i - ,- ,i

The arrival of baitfish into
our back waters signifies a
change is in the air.
Spring has sprung and
the fishing is finally going to
get really good for the next
few months.
The Spanish mackerel are
already here and chewing
ravenously on schools of
glass minnows. Now that
the threadfins, aka green-
backs, and scaled sardines,
aka whitebait, are in the
mix it will only attract more
mackerel and in turn king-
fish.
The water temperature is
right at 70 degrees off the
beach and a couple degrees
cooler a few miles off-shore,
so our push of kingfish
should be here any day. By
this weekend anglers who
want to target kings should
keep it close.
Anchor or slow troll
around hard-bottom areas
no more than a mile or two
off the beach. Another spot
that is primed to go off
would have to be the ship-
ping channel. Markers five
and seven are usual spots to
target schoolie kings in the
spring.
Cobia are real targets
right now. Whether you're
grouper fishing or king fish-
ing, be ready with a rod
rigged that you can cast a
live pinfish a good distance.
We've encountered three
cobia in the past week and
we were finally able to hook
and catch one over the
weekend.
Grouper fishing was good


Capt. Tyson
Wallerstein


this past weekend. Fishing
30 to 50 feet of water was
the ticket for the gags. Use
plenty of frozen sardines to
get the bite going. Once you
reel up a couple of gags that
are close, draw down a
frisky pinfish and hold on.
The live bait accounted for
all our keepers, signifying
that the fish are more active
than they were even a week
ago when frozen sardines
caught most of the fish.
Inshore, trout remain the
best bet with some better
redfish action expected with
the up-coming new moon.
Target trout along sharp
drop-offs on the edges of the
flats. Low tide has been the
key as it will really concen-
trate the fish on the edge.
Live select shrimp are hard
to beat, but after seeing
some of the big fish we've
been catching on small
grass grunts, I'll definitely
take the grunts.
Until next week get
bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be
reached at capt.tyson@hot
maiLcom. To get afish photo
in the paper send the photo
along with your name, when
and where it was caught to

Biologists get help in tarpon research


Biologists with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
and Mote Marine Laboratory
continue to gather valuable
tarpon information with the
help of Florida anglers.
By analyzing DNA samples
collected by fishermen, biolo-
gists gain insight into tarpon
movement and distribution
as well as their ability to
withstand fishing pressures.
Biologists use samples
submitted to the Tarpon Ge-
netic Recapture Program to
identify the tarpon's genetic
"fingerprint."
The fingerprints provide a
unique and natural tag for
each individual fish. Scien-
tists compare new tarpon
DNA samples with cataloged
samples to determine if
someone caught and sam-
pled that tarpon previously.
Biologists refer to these fish
as "recaptured" tarpon.
State officials have docu-
mented 37 recaptured tarpon
since 2005. Information from
these fish provides valuable
insight on tarpon movement.
For example, one recap-
tured adult tarpon traveled
88 miles in 313 days, head-
ing north from the waters off
Fort Myers Beach to Long
Boat Key.
A different tarpon made a
similar movement in the op-
posite direction, confirming
that tarpon move between
estuaries along the west
coast. Another fish, caught
in June 2007 in Boca
Grande, was captured in the

Speaking of Pets
Kim Donovan, D.V.M.


There are many things to
consider when selecting food
for your pet. Reading the
label and understanding
what it means will help you
in selecting the proper diet for
your pet.
The first thing to look for
on any bag or can of pet food
is the AAFCO statement. This
is usually a very small para-
graph written in fine print.
The term AAFCO stands for
the Association of American
Feed Control Officials. The
AAFCO statement required to
appear on all pet food pack-
aging standardizes the way
pet food manufacturers must
produce, label, distribute and
sell pet food.
The first portion of the
AAFCO statement may say
one of two things, either the
diet is formulated or it has
gone through feeding trials.
To ensure that your pet's diet
is going to do what it says on
the bag, then it should have
gone through feeding trials.
For example, if you select a
growth formula for your
puppy you want to be sure it
was tested on puppies and
that these puppies grew at
the appropriate rate while
being fed this diet. Formulat-
ed means the diet was formu-
lated on a computer and
never went through any feed-
ing trials.
The other portion of the
AAFCO statement will tell you
what life stage of your pet the
diet is intended for. You want
to be sure that is has a spe-
cific life stage such as
puppy/growth, adult/mainte-
nance, or senior/mature. If it
says "for all life stages" then
this diet is not recommended
for adult or senior pets. In
order for the label to say "for
all life stages" it has to be for-
mulated for puppies.
When looking at the per-
centages of the nutrients like
crude protein, crude fiber,
crude fat, etc., you need to
know that these are "As Fed"
percentages. Therefore, you
cannot compare one bag to
another using these percent-
ages. In order to compare
these percentages from one
bag to another you need to
convert these percentages
into "Dry Matter" percent-
ages. In order to do this you
must know the moisture con-
tent.
Example: Crude protein


Bowlful of feline


Leo was adopted from the SPCA in 1998. His owner, Cher
Talon of St. Petersburg, originally bought this bowl for a plant,
but when she took it out of the bag and placed it on her dining
room table, Leo curled up inside. It has been his bowl ever
since. As the winning Pet Connection photo, Talon wins a $25
gift certificate to Largo Feed. Next month's photo winner will
receive a gift basket from Lake Seminole Animal Hospital.
Send photos to csouthmayd@TBNweekly.com.


percentage on the bag says
25 percent; moisture percent-
age on the bag says 11 per-
cent. To calculate protein into
a dry matter basis we would
subtract the moisture from
100 percent of the diet 100
percent diet minus 11 per-
cent moisture equals 89 per-
cent dry matter.
Now, to calculate the crude
protein into a dry matter
basis we divide the percent-
age of protein by 89 percent
of dry diet 25 percent divid-
ed by 89 percent equals 0.28;
then we multiply by 100 per-
cent and we get 28 percent
crude protein on a dry matter
basis.
If you have another diet
you want to compare with
this one then you must cal-
culate those percentages into
a dry matter basis in order to
compare them. The reason
you can't compare diets that
are in an "As Fed" basis is be-
cause each diet has a differ-
ent percentage of moisture.
Knowing about the AAFCO
statement and knowing how
to compare one diet to anoth-
er by comparing them on a
dry matter basis should help
you select a better diet for
your pet.
If you have any concerns
or questions about the food
you feed your pet, your vet-
erinarian is the best source
for this information. If your
veterinarian doesn't recom-
mend a certain diet for your
pet, then ask what the best
diet would be for your pet.

Grass is hungry and thirsty


The whole month of March
was sort of a wet lamb. There
were no more freezing tem-
peratures and plenty of rain.
April is traditionally a dry
month, so ration the March
rains in the rainbarrels.
The ixora plants took a ter-
rible chill this winter. Many
are half alive and some of the
hedges I've looked at have not
shown any sign of rebounding
this spring. Another few
weeks will prove if they're
worth saving. I repeatedly tell


myself that it was the coldest
winter on record and that's
why long-standing shrubs
were killed.
Some neighborhoods have
rules that mandate the
homes must have lawns. In
my previous gardening life,
BF (before Florida), fertilizer
was put on twice a year and
crabgrass pre-emergent was
spread when the forsythia
bloomed. Never watered, as
there was regular rainfall and
mowed when needed.


Ruth Davies

Grass growing in Florida is
quite the opposite. I see the
chemical trucks every day in
the neighborhood; chasing
bugs, spraying liquid fertilizer
- who knows what's hitting
our ground. It's not a funny
ha-ha joke, but we fertilize


grass, cut it off when it grows
and throw it away. Duh -
why have grass. I'd like to see
homeowner associations re-
verse the rule about grass
and allow only a small por-
tion.
To help protect our water-
ways and quality of drinking
water, Pinellas County passed
an ordinance in January that
will ban fertilization of lawns
from Oct. 1 through May 31,
starting in 2011.
A few of the ordinance


points are:
Fertilizers containing ni-
trogen and/or phosphorus
cannot be applied to lawns or
landscape plants from June 1
to Sept. 30.
If granular fertilizers con-
taining nitrogen are used,
they must contain no less
than 50 percent slow-release
nitrogen, per guaranteed
analysis label.
A fertilizer-free zone is a
10-foot buffer from a wetland,
top of the bank of a surface


water, or landward edge of a
seawall. Fertilizer cannot be
applied within this zone.
If grass is still your choice
as a ground cover, keep the
basics in mind: keep the
mowing height high; water
deeply on schedule; avoid
heavy foot traffic; and control
weeds.
If this doesn't work for you,
try a non-grass ground cover.

Morton Plant breaks ground on Axelrod Pavilion


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER Morton
Plant Hospital has broken
ground on the Axelrod Pavil-
ion, a 103,500-square-foot,
four-story building that will
encompass the current Susan
Cheek Needler Breast Center,
the Carlisle Imaging Center
and the Comprehensive
Breast Care Center of Tampa
Bay.
The building also will have
offices for the internationally
known surgical oncologists,
Dr. Peter Blumencranz and
Dr. Kathleen Allen, who spe-
cialize in breast cancer. There
also will be office space for
other oncologists.
Patients will only have to go
to one building for all their
imaging and breast cancer
services except for surgery
and chemotherapy and radia-
tion treatments which will be
right across the street, Blu-
mencranz said.
"The idea is that we need
more room, and we want to
expand services for the breast
patient," Blumencranz said.
"Often, their care is fragment-
ed."
Currently, breast cancer
patients may get sent by their
doctors to get a mammogram
at a radiologist practice, then
go back to the primary doctor
for a surgeon recommenda-
tion if the mammogram is ab-
normal. The patient gets a
surgical consult, and then
there could be more imaging,
consultations, and then the
surgery.
"The beauty of the new cen-
ter is to have all the imaging,
even advanced technological
things with imaging with the
breast as well as the clinical
services all under one roof,
which we kind of have now
but are limited by space," Blu-
mencranz said.
Breast cancer patients usu-
ally want to understand the
spectrum of their care right
from the start, Blumencranz
said, and having one location
for all their care makes this
possible and easy for the vari-
ous doctors to consult with
one another.
"Our goal is to make it easy
for oncology patients so they
can go to one building and
have their needs met instead
of having to go from one
building to another, and this
makes it a whole lot easier to
coordinate their care and pro-
vide the care in a more timely
manner," said Glenn Waters,
Morton Plant Mease Health
System president.
Waters said that while the
current programs are suc-
cessful, they have run out of
room in their various build-
ings and need room to grow
their programs.
"(The Axelrod Pavilion)
helps us continue to meet our
mission of continuing to serve
the community's health
needs, and even with the suc-
cess of the programs, we have
issues with space, and the
new space will allow us to
continue to meet the commu-
nity's needs," Waters said.
The building is being built
on the empty lot off of Pinellas
Street, across from the Well-
ness Center and is set to be
completed in May 2011.
Blumencranz said that the
building will allow for much-
needed expansions of the
Susan Cheek Needler Breast
Center. For instance, mam-
mography has transitioned
from film to digital, and while
this is much more efficient
and convenient, the current
problem is having the proper
work stations and screens to


view the mammograms.
"It's much easier to have a
designated work station to
look at images," Blumencranz
said. "A little laptop just
doesn't do it when you're try-
ing to analyze breast imaging.
So the idea of the new center
would be to move all the elec-
tronics that are happening
and have these displays in
each contact room with the
patient. It's available in the
digital department, but also
those same displays will be
available even in the exam
room."
The new building also will
make multidisciplinary plan-
ning for the patients even easi-
er, where the surgeons,
medical oncologists, radiation
oncologists, pathologists, radi-
ologists and radiation thera-
pists all can meet to discuss a
patient's care, Blumencranz
said. Morton Plant already
does this, he said, but it will
be more efficient now that
most all of those doctors will
be in the same building or at
least across the street from
one another.
Another efficiency the new
building will allow for is to
have all the related equipment
in the same place, Blumen-
cranz said. The Susan Cheek
building is packed, he said, so
there isn't room for large
equipment such as an MRI
machine.
"Besides diagnostic mam-
mography and ultrasound, we
will have breast MRI capability
(in the new building,) includ-
ing the ability to do MRI guid-
ed breast biopsies which are


not widely available," Blumen-
cranz said. "Breast MRI is
used selectively, but some-
times it will turn up some-
thing on MRI images that is
not visible on standard mam-
mograms and ultrasounds,
and if a patient comes up with
an abnormal MRI report from
a facility, which is quite com-
mon, it often doesn't' offer MRI
biopsy capability, which
means while the patient is get-
ting their MRI, we have sys-
tems and a way to put a
needle in that target on the
MRI to get a sample."
This is a minimally invasive
sampling, he said, but if a fa-
cility doesn't have that capa-
bility, the patient is left
worrying about the abnormal
MRI until she can get to some-
place that can take a sample
and then wait for the results.
Morton Plant currently has
this capability, Blumencranz
said, but it is in a different
building than the current
breast services due to lack of
space. However, only special-
ized breast MRI radiologists
are capable of reading them,
so the images must be cur-
rently sent back to the Susan
Cheek center to be read,
whereas in the new building,
all the equipment and doctors
will be in the same place and
patients won't have to wait
and worry.
Extra space will be reserved
for emerging technologies,
Blumencranz said, which will
be looked at in more detail as
the end date of construction
nears. Other space in the
building will be for other on-

Carlisle Imaging Center and
Susan Cheek Needler Breast
Center, both of which will keep
their current names. The sec-

well as some other oncologist
physicians. The third floor also
will be for oncologists, and the
fourth floor is not fully com-
mitted, Waters said.
The Axelrod Pavilion also
will have a nurse navigator,
Blumencranz said, which is a
specialized RN who is an ex-
pert in a specific cancer field
and can help guide patients
through their treatment
process. She will help patients


coordinate all the specialists
and doctors they will have to
see and answer questions
about any step of the cancer
treatment program, even all
the way to the post-op support
and wellness programs the
hospital offers.
Additionally, there will be a
free oncology resource library
in the new building that will
be open to the public. This is
to provide resources for people
to research more on their own
about cancer. The building
also will house the Cancer Pa-
tient Support Services at Mor-
ton Plan Hospital, which
provides cancer patients and
their families access to coun-
selors, support groups and ed-


ucation in effective coping
skills.
The current sites for the
Susan Cheek Needler Breast
Center and Carlisle Imaging
Center will be filled with other
labs, programs and services,
Waters said.
The Axelrod Pavilion is
named for Shirley and Harvey
Axelrod, in honor of Shirley's
generous support of Morton
Plant, according to a hospital
press release. She was present
at the groundbreaking on
