reconstruction


sparks debate
By TOM GERMOND The maintenance costs are expel


LARGO Several city commission-
ers are leery of the scope and cost of
plans to reconstruct Highland Av-
enue, debating the project for more
than an hour April 20.
They will discuss how to scale
down the project at an upcoming
work session. However, commission-
ers decided to accept $850,000 from
the county to be used for Highland
Avenue improvements in exchange
for the city taking over the mainte-
nance of the road.
City Engineer Leland Dicus said
the majority of the costs of the pro-
ject are going toward safety improve-
ments.
Among problems with the road, he
said, is that it lacks curbs and gut-
ters, the pavement needs improve-
ment and the road has insufficient
pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
"We also have a need for improve-
ment of the intersections, particular-
ly at Rosery Road," he said, "where
we lack crosswalks, pedestrian sig-
nals ..."


Educators
By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

Pinellas County educators ex-
pressed their approval immediately
following Gov. Charlie Crist's veto of
Senate Bill 6 on Thursday, April 15.
The bill would have linked half of
teachers' salaries to student perfor-
mance, eliminate tenure and take
away higher pay for teachers with
master's degrees or special certifica-
tions.
"Obviously, I'm very happy about
that (the veto,)" said Pinellas County


ect-


ed to be minimal in the next 20
years under the city's plans to recon-
struct the road.
Commissioner Robert Murray said
with the problems the city is having
balancing the budget, "it doesn't
make sense to me to pick up an ad-
ditional responsibility with this pro-
ject at this time."
Commissioner Curtis Holmes
agreed.
"This is eye candy," he said,
adding that the cost of the project is
more than $6 million.
"Right now we're pinching pen-
nies, right now we're threatening lay-
offs ..." he said.
Commissioner Mary Black said
that the county should keep the
road and be asked to install a side-
walk along the route.
"It is a good plan, but it is just a
plan we can't pay for right now," she
said.
Commissioner Woody Brown said
the city has a lot of partners on the

,legislator
Superintendent Dr. Julie Janssen. "I
think it was proof that he had lis-
tened to his constituents, so that
was good news for us."
Janssen had met with Crist the
previous week when he was in town
so she could talk to him about her
reservations about the bill, she said.
Many school board members, teach-
ers, administrators and parents also
spoke with or wrote to the governor
about their opinions about the bill.

Chairwoman Janet Clark said she

was pleased that the governor ve-
toed the bill, but she is realistic
about where the state is headed in
regards to performance pay.
'We know that the tide is turning,
and we know we're going to have
some type of performance pay, so
that means that we're going to have
to be working on that," Clark said.
"There has to be some reform on
this. That's not an issue. I really
think the majority of our teachers
are behind looking at pay for perfor-
mance and reforming the pay struc-


ture. However, I also think it sent a
strong message to the Senate and
the House that they cannot expect to
push their agenda through and have
100 percent support. I hope they'll
be looking more closely at some of
the education bills that they're trying
to pass or are passing because peo-
ple are paying attention."
Clark said the district is already
working on revamping the teachers'
contracts and are looking at taking

New fire station

to be delayed
By WAYNE AYERS

BELLEAIR BLUFFS An expected fall start for con-
struction of a new fire station on Indian Rocks Road in
Largo has been pushed back. The station would replace
Station 43 in Belleair Bluffs.
Negotiations for purchase of the land for the new facil-
ity have stalled, Largo fire Chief Michael Wallace told the
City Commission at Monday night's meeting. The site is
located just north of the Largo Medical Center Indian
Rocks Campus (previously Sun Coast Hospital).
Wallace said the property purchase is in ongoing nego-
tiations.
"We are still in the process of pursuing the land, but
there has been no movement," Wallace said.
Because of the delay in obtaining the land, an archi-
tect for the new station has not been picked yet. An ex-
pected October construction start date is still possible,
but not likely, Wallace said in comments after the meet-
ing.
He indicated an opening date for the station could
now be two to two-and-a-half years away.
Wallace also announced that renovations to the Bluffs
fire station on Indian Rocks Road are now done.

"You can have sandwiches,

She also said there would

ed March 16 to seek propos-
als from vendors interested in
running the cafe instead of
giving the current operator a
new one-year agreement.
Rather than seeking pro-

to three years, the commis-
sion should allow the Library

project. He said Highland Av-
enue is a street that is in
"desperate need of work."
The $850,000 by itself would
allow the city to maintain High-
land Avenue so that it would be
safe to drive on, but it would
still be unsafe to walk or ride a
bicycle along, he said.
'This is also going to be the
first street in Largo that has a
bike lane," Brown said. "It's
something that we needed for
a long time, and I think that
the people we represent will
be happy to see us starting to
look for more ways of trans-
portation rather than just a
car."
In addition to the county
contributing funds for the
project, the Florida Southwest
Florida Water Management
District has agreed to allocate
$750,000 to the city for
stormwater improvements for
the project.
Commissioner Harriet
Crozier said when she consid-
ers the project, she "thinks of
what it will do for the whole
neighborhood that whole
area."
"Granted, there's other
roads that need improve-

"It looks nice. They've done
a good job," Wallace reported.
City Clerk Debra Sullivan
said she had recently had a
tour of the remodeled station.
"It's all painted and reorga-
nized, very clean," she said.
Sullivan commended the fire-
fighters for "working very hard
to get it nice."
In other fire-related news,
Wallace said the department
is looking to dispose of a 22-
year-old reserve engine at the


ment," she said. "If we do this
now, I don't think that's say-
ing we are not taking care of
the needs of the community."
She also agreed with
Brown that because of con-
cerns with traffic at a school
and church located on High-
land Avenue to the north of
Rosery Road, the project
should not end at Rosery.
City Manager Mac Craig
said trails and roadways are
included in the city's strategic
plan for years.
'This is an opportunity for
us for the first time to tie in
Highland Avenue to the trails
and to the park system, and
we have talked about that for
years," he said.
He said if commissioners
want to do the project in
phases, it should be at least
extended to Rosery.
City officials will modify the
proposed $630,000 in engi-
neering fees based on com-
missioners' desire to phase in
or scale back the project. It
will be brought to the com-
mission May 4.
City officials had planned
on advertising for bids on the
project in the fall and proceed
with construction in the
spring of 2011.


Bluffs station. He outlined
three disposal options: sell the
engine, auction it off, or do-
nate it to a needy department.
Selling it would not be worth
the trouble, in Wallace's view.
The vehicle would probably
bring no more than $7,000 or
$8,000 at an auction, he said.
Two volunteer depart-
ments, one in north Florida
and the other in Tennessee,
have expressed an interest in
obtaining the engine as a do-
nation, Wallace said after the
meeting.

VETO, from page 1

some of the student performance into account in the pay struc-
ture, putting them ahead of many other districts.
Janssen agreed that the district needs to look at some form
of performance pay and that the bill wasn't all bad.
'There are many good pieces in the bill, and I think it's time
for us all to come back to the table and look at that so we can
truly move education for our children to a higher level,"
Janssen said.
The problem was the process, she said, because none of the
state's actual educators was involved. The ways the bill would
have implemented the changes and the costs they would in-
volve would have been problematic, she said. She added that
it is imperative to have incentives for teachers to work in low
performing schools.
Janssen said she hopes when the government revisits the
bill's concept that this time they will include educators, ad-
ministrators and school boards to help create a good, feasible
piece of legislation.
The state Senate passed the bill 21-17, and then it passed
the House of Representatives 64-55 in a vote that went into
the early hours of April 9. A strongly Republican bill, none of
the Senate or House Democrats voted for the bill.
The governor then had to decide whether to sign it or not by
midnight on April 16 or else it would automatically become
law. The governor is reported to have said he got more public
feedback about this bill than from any other legislation since
he came into office.
State Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Seminole, voted no on the bill
and said he was pleased with the governor's decision to veto
the bill.
"I just feel that an issue that's this far reaching needs to
have all the players at the table, and if you're going to affect
the educational system, it's hard to put legislation together if
you're not going to include the teachers, the administrators,
the people, and the parents," Jones said. "And I just feel that
this bill came on the Legislature too fast, too quick without
the input of the parties it's going to hurt the most, and as a
result, I voted against the bill. ... If I had gotten one phone call
supporting this, it would have been the first."
Jones said that Florida is like the rest of the country right
now in that it is financially strapped, and that while he sup-
ports paying highly successful teachers more, it is not finan-
cially feasible at present.
"And certainly to put any more roadblocks in the way of
teachers is certainly going to hurt in recruiting teachers to go
into the profession in the future," Jones said. "And I come
from a county that needs about 500 new teachers a year just
based on retirement, death, pregnancy, relocation, so I just
think this bill has sent the wrong message."
As it was written, Jones said it would discourage teachers
from seeking higher education and advanced certifications. He
also said that it had the potential to drive out highly qualified
teachers.


"After you have 10 or 12 years of experience, your whole
ability to relate to students, relate to parents, to establish
trust and a relationship, it's hard to put a value on that,"
Jones said. "So I think this bill would have taken a lot of that
away. If a teacher was dealt with a bad hand of cards for one
year, with students that were disruptive, students who
wouldn't go to class, parents who wouldn't interact, it's not
fair to base a teacher's pay on that particular situation."
State Representative Janet Long, D-Seminole, also voted
against the bill and supported Crist's veto.
"I strongly commend Gov. Crist for taking a stand in sup-
port of Florida's children and teachers by voting against Sen-
ate Bill 6," Long said in a written statement. "Improving and
reforming the education system should be a bipartisan effort
developed in concert with Florida's teach-
ers and others. Unfortunately, Senate Bill
6 succumbed to partisan politics over
what is in the best interest of our stu-
dents, teachers and all Floridians."
Jones said that he hopes the legislature
will learn from this experience and take
its time to meet with all parties of interest
in education and work together next year
to come up with a solid piece of legislation
that is beneficial, feasible and affordable. Julie Janssen
"As far as raising educational stan-
dards, I don't think really anyone is opposed to that if it is
done in a methodical way," Jones said.
Not everyone was pleased with the veto decision. State Rep-
resentative James Frishe, R-Belleair Bluffs, voted for the bill
and said he is disappointed in Gov. Crist for his decision.
'The governor was clearly in favor of it two weeks before,"
Frishe said. "And the bill didn't change, and he even sent his
top education policy person down to testify in favor of the bill
in committee, and then two weeks later, he vetoed the bill, and
I'm just very disappointed."
Frishe said he has been working with this issue in the Leg-
islature for 25 years and that in that time, all the important
parties of interest have been vetted. He also said that the veto
eliminates the hope of receiving a Race to the Top federal
grant in the second round of grant awards. He felt that this
bill would have secured the funding and thus would have
funds available to pay teachers more and for other education
needs.
Frishe said his wife is a retired educator and his daughter is
an elementary school teacher, so he has a stake in education,
but he has lost faith in the teachers' unions.
"What we'll probably do is come back next year and try to
put together a reform," Frishe said. "But I'm not particularly
optimistic that the unions will support anything anymore. The
reason these (similar) bills passed in Delaware and Tennessee
and that they got Race to the Top funds is the unions figured
out that this is the only way they all get their better teachers
paid more. But the Florida unions opposed it and basically
convinced the governor through public pressure to veto the


bill."
There were some common misconceptions in the public, Fr-
ishe said. For instance, he said they weren't trying to control
things that they can't control, like what happens at home.
"We weren't planning on judging teachers on what they
couldn't control," Frishe said. "All we were saying is the things
you can control, we should be able to reward you for that. We
can't control parents, and we can't control home environment.
...What we do want to do is reward teachers for what they can
control, and that's what happens in the time that that student
is in your classroom. And if that student makes gains when
they're in your classroom, you deserve to be rewarded."
A lot of the details were to have been worked out on the
local level, Frishe said, which is why there was to be a four-
year implementation period.
"What matters is what the child learns from the time they
walk in until the time they walk out of the classroom," Frishe
said. "In fact, teachers in poor schools where they have under-
performing children actually have a better chance of making
learning gains than the teacher who teaches, say, at Palm
Harbor University where all the kids come in smart. If a kid
comes in smart, it may be tougher to show learning gains
than when a child comes in behind schedule, behind grade,
and you bring him up during that school year."
Frishe added that those students with bad home lives will
require more effort by the teachers to help them to learn, and
discipline is an issue that will have to be worked out, but
there are teachers who are successful in these environments.
"We have a lot of intelligent people, and a lot of people are
making it work, and all we have to do is learn from them," Fr-
ishe said. "And if you take a student who has not been learn-
ing and you take them into your classroom and they do learn
under your classroom tutelage, that means you are a good
teacher and should be paid more."
Frishe emphasized that only slightly more than 50 percent
of teachers' evaluations were to be based on student achieve-
ment. The other portion would have been based on principals'
criteria, which could have included increased pay for teachers
with master's degrees or additional certifications, whether
they participate in school activities or other criteria that the
principal deems important.
'That then becomes part of their overall evaluation that de-
termines what their pay increase is going to be," Frishe said.
"And the good part is that the National Board Certification,
things like that, that becomes part of their salary then, not a
bonus, so it also helps toward retirement and pension."
Whether people were for or against the bill, all agreed that
they want to strive for quality education. Janssen added that
Florida has come a long way in raising achievement, and they
will continue on that path and keep making education even
better.
"I want the public to know there are great things going on in
public education in Florida," Janssen said, "and it's too often
that we don't hear about those things, but if you even take a
day to visit a school, you'll see some great things."

Madeira man charged with
lewd, lascivious battery
LARGO A Madeira Beach man was ar-
rested on April 15 and charged with two
counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a
child under age 16 and contributing to the
delinquency of a child.
Pinellas County sheriffs detectives with
the Crime Against Children Unit began an
investigation into the incident two weeks
ago. According to a report from the sher-
iffs office, the 14-year-old victim was left
in the custody of the suspect and his wife
in February 2009 by the victim's father
who had to travel out of state for employ-
ment.
The sexual abuse began shortly after-
ward, and stopped in June 2009 when the
victim's father returned to Florida, the re-
port said. Detectives said it also is alleged
that the suspect on more than one occa-
sion, gave the victim marijuana and com-
mitted lewd and lascivious acts against
her.
The victim just recently disclosed to her
father what had occurred, and he contact-
ed the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office to
report the abuse on March 30.
Michael W. Ritner, 46, was arrested at
11 a.m. at the Sheriffs Office Administra-
tion Building in Largo. He was released on
bonds totaling $20,150 at 6:30 p.m. the
same day.
The report said since the victim is an
14-year-old female, who is known to the
suspect, per Florida statute, no further de-
tails will be released that would tend to
identify the victim. The investigation con-
tinues.

Man arrested after he rams
ex-girlfriend's car
CLEARWATER Clearwater Police ar-
rested a New Port Richey man after ram-
ming his estranged girlfriend's vehicle on
April 14.
The suspect's girlfriend had recently
moved out because of ongoing domestic
violence, according to a Clearwater police
report. She was staying at a friend's house


in Safety Harbor when the suspect,
Matthew Tweel, 28, arrived unexpectedly,
the report said. The victim left in her vehi-
cle, and he followed in his vehicle. Tweel
then intentionally rammed the rear of her
car in the 2900 block of S.R. 590, but the
victim was able to evade the suspect and
call police.
Clearwater police began a search and
used K-9 units, arresting Tweel at Keene
Road and Drew Street.
Tweel is charged with aggravated as-
sault with a deadly weapon, domestic;
possession of marijuana; and Pasco Coun-
ty charges for carrying a concealed
firearm; two counts of possession of a
controlled substance; and three counts of
aggravated assault. He was being held at
the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $65,150
bond.

Child found running in road,
man arrested
PALM HARBOR A man was arrested
April 12 after his 4-year-old son was found
running alone in a four-way roadway, ac-
cording to a Pinellas County Sheriffs Of-
fice report.
According to the report, the boy was left
in the care of Peter Tibma, 54, of Palm
Harbor, but Doug Hall, 58, of Palm Harbor
saw the boy in the road as Hall was dri-
ving along Eastlake Road near Backwater
Trail. Hall called 911 and reported that he
saw the boy running in the road and was
wearing red pajamas. The report said Hall
tried to stop the child, but the boy ap-
peared scared and continued running
north.
Deputies responded about 8:49 p.m.,
and the boy was found about 9:08 p.m. in
a gated community near a private resi-
dence. Kenneth Emery, 67, found the boy
near his residence on Cove Trace, and he
flagged down a patrol deputy who had re-
sponded to the area to search for the boy.
The child was placed into the care of a
family member, and he was unharmed.
Tibma was charged with neglect of a
child and was being held at the Pinellas
County Jail.


Foreclosures still a problem,


property appraiser says


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE Pam Dubov is getting used to
being the bearer of bad news.
Most recently, the Pinellas County Property
Appraiser told members of the Seminole
Chamber of Commerce that foreclosures con-
tinue to be a problem in the county, driving
market values down while taxable values, or
cap values, continue to rise.
'There are actually more fore-
closures in Pinellas County than
what appears on the Clerk of the
Court's records," she said dur-
ing an April 15 luncheon. 'They
involve condos primarily and it
occurs because lenders don't
want to take them back and
have to pay condo association
dues."
All of this leads to a strong Pam Dubov
buyers market but most families
can't afford to purchase because so many are
unemployed.
Still, the first quarter of 2010 saw an in-
crease in the sale of single-family homes in
the county from the same period a year ago,
Dubov said.
In the first quarter of 2009, there were 395
sales at a median price of $155,000. During
the first quarter of this year, home sales were
up 24 percent to 490, but the median price
dropped 17 percent to $128,000.
Condo sales stayed about even. During the
first three months of 2009, the county
recorded 320 sales at a median price of
$120,000, compared to 318 sales in 2010 at
a median price of $90,000, a decrease of 25
percent.
"When values drop, it results in lower tax
bills if cities don't increase millage rates and
last year Seminole didn't increase millage,"
said Dubov. "But it will get tougher to do for
all municipalities across the county."
She said the final numbers are still in the
works but the preliminary figures indicate the
city of Seminole will see an 11 to 12 percent


drop in taxable values from a year ago.
However, the hit on Seminole's budget will
not be as bad as it sounds because ad val-
orem tax revenue makes up only 18 percent
of the city's revenue.
Assuming city tax revenue drops 12 per-
cent for fiscal year 2011, the city will lose
$328,329, or 2 percent, from its current
$15.6 million budget.
Taxable values are based on the values of
homes sold in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Dubov explained that tax values do
not decline at the same rate as market
values.
"Due to (the) Save Our Homes (tax
cap), we're going to see increases in
tax values even though there's a drop
in market value," she said. "It's very
frustrating for homeowners and I feel
that frustration as well."
On another note, Dubov said she fa-
vors passage of Amendment 3 on the
November ballot.
If Florida voters approve the measure, own-
ers of property that does not qualify for a
homestead exemption could see a tax break.
The assessed value of such "non-homestead"
property cannot increase more than 10 per-
cent a year, according to the state Constitu-
tion.
Amendment 3 would change that limit to 5
percent. It would also provide an additional
$25,000 homestead exemption for property
taxpayers who haven't owned a principal resi-
dence over the past eight years.
Dubov said the current 10 percent annual
cap on non-homesteaded is an inequity in the
system and needs to be fixed.
"I'm going to vote for it (Amendment 3),"
she said. "It would produce a more equitable
system by getting non-homesteaded people
closer to the homesteaded (3 percent annual
cap).
"I don't see how we get to a better place
until we do things to help Florida small busi-
ness," Dubov added. "How many restaurants
are empty? How many storefronts?"

Kudos for Crist


Governor Charlie Crist did the right thing.
Accused of kowtowing to the teachers' union
and flip-flopping on his own political party's
key legislation, Crist wisely vetoed the ill-con-
ceived Senate Bill 6, also known as an educa-
tion reform bill.
The bill incensed educators
statewide and for good reason.
Teachers, school boards and par-
ents were not involved in the
process of drafting the legislation
from the get-go. Lawmakers were
more concerned about making a
statement than they were about
adopting a bill that would provide
meaningful improvement in educa-
tion. .
The worst provision of the bill Charlie
called for teachers' salaries in part
to be tied to students' tests scores and learn-
ing gains.
Left unexplained by legislators is what crite-
ria will be used to ensure that teachers evalua-
tions are fair across the board.
Is it really fair and reasonable to expect all
teachers in every setting to improve test scores
and student performance?
Some teachers are no more than baby-sit-
ters in certain classrooms, which, sadly, can
be battle zones. How can a teacher administer-
ing a test to a group of special needs children
be expected to improve their scores if the
teacher can't get the students to sit still long
enough to take an important test? How can a
teacher who has several students from broken
or impoverished families be expected to im-
prove their performances if their parents can't
even be persuaded to make sure their chil-


dren's prescriptions are filled or that they even
get to school?
Why is testing, such as the FCAT, already
criticized for being emphasized too much in
the schools, considered such an clear-cut
means in evaluating whether teachers are
doing their jobs?
Student testing does not measure
a teacher's enthusiasm, nor does it
show how much time and energy a
teacher dedicates to his or her pro-
fession at school or beyond the class-
room.
How will the new evaluation crite-
ria take into account whether teach-
ers are innovative, or have worked
: .s with their fellow faculty members or
superiors to improve student perfor-
mance? Would the legislation take
into account what efforts teachers have
reached out to parents or taken other mea-
sures to help students?
State Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Treasure Island,
who bucked his party in voting against the bill,
said he felt "this bill came on the Legislature
too fast, too quick without the input of the par-
ties it's going to hurt the most."
Agreed. Sadly, his Republican colleagues
who voted for the legislation showed that ei-
ther they are so far removed from the environs
of the classroom or so blinded by party loyalty,
they were oblivious to what the ramifications
of their actions would be and the outrage
among educators they would cause
Republican leaders will continue to bash
Crist for crossing party lines.
But sending them back to the chalkboard
may have been the governor's finest hour.

Veto merit raises
Editor:
I am not a fan of any politician, least of all
Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican. But I was
very touched and amazed that he vetoed the
bill that would give merit raises to teachers
based on the children's' performance on stan-
dardized tests. Furthermore, I was happy that
he eluded to the Nina Harris School in Pinellas
Park where Crist visited two years ago and re-
ferred to that school with its special education
students as the reason he vetoed the bill.
I am dismayed now that since he vetoed the
bill, he has lost votes by would-be, will not
now vote for him in his run for senator, includ-
ing his own party members. I swear. When
God gave out brains, he went right over the
heads of politicians.
I have a solution. We as voters and con-
stituents should obtain the opportunity to veto
merit raises for senators and congressmen and
women based on their performance in the
House of Representatives each year.
I am certain the House members get a raise
every year even though Obama called for pay
wage freezes for all government employees.
I am still waiting for word as to when I will
receive my stimulus check for 2010. I have two
options. Hold my hand on my derriere or write
a letter to President Obama.

Where are the bike lanes?
Editor:
This letter is in response to an article that
appeared in the St. Petersburg Times Neigh-
borhood section Sunday, April 11. In the "Dr.
Delay" column, a reader from Seminole or
Largo wrote in to complain about the large
pack of cyclists taking up most of the north-
bound lane of Oakhurst/Indian Rocks Road
on just about every Sunday morning. I have
been one of those cyclist in that group on
many occasions, and while I certainly can't
speak for everyone in that group, I can say
that if any road we ride on in the city of Semi-
nole had even the slightest resemblance to a
bike lane, I would be on it.
Bicycles are not meant to be on sidewalks,
and in a city that prides itself as family orient-
ed, neighborhood schools, "Come Grow With
Us," etc., I challenge any city official to show
me or tell me where one bike lane in the entire
city exists. I'm fully aware the Pinellas Trail
runs north and south through Seminole, and
it's a great recreational resource for the entire
county, but with the number of walkers, roller
bladers, joggers, kids, dogs, teenagers, stop
signs and crosswalks every 10 blocks, it is not
conducive, not to mention safe, for our types of
bikes and speeds. With three major schools in


the area of 131st Street and 86th Avenue not
one of those two major routes of traveling to or
from those schools have bike lanes. Our route
through your city takes us from the Bay Pines
bridge area to 54th Avenue north on 113th
Street to 68th Avenue west on 74th Avenue to
Oakhurst Road and north on Oakhurst to
102nd Avenue.
Not one bike lane to the entire route. I've
also been on 102nd Avenue many times, and I
know there is currently some debate as to
what that road should look like in its finished
state, whenever that is. I just hope it includes
a bike lane somewhere. I urge the city officials
in Seminole to take a drive down to St. Peters-
burg some time. Just about every road resur-
face job in that city includes the addition of a
bike lane. Or better yet, get out on a bike in
your own city somewhere. Just make sure you
have a helmet on. You're gonna need it!

Facts always win out
Re: Don't shoot the messenger March 25
Editor:
It's always important to get the facts
straight. The only time "they shoot the mes-
senger" is when the facts are wrong.
First, there are two gentle ladies on the
(Seminole City) Council and one of them was
just elected vice mayor.
Second, there was no increase in the city
budget, but a transfer of money from one de-
partment to another. I do not know that many
cities will transfer funds from one account to
another, to make sure each department is run-
ning as it should.
I attended many of the candidate forums
and of the seven candidates, only one kept
bringing up a full-time mayor form of govern-
ment. One of the other candidates wanted all
of the council members replaced. One of the
candidates had nothing but praise for the City
Council and the city manager.
Every full-time mayor is on salary and he or
she has a full-time staff. In Florida it seems
very expensive to fire a top executive. What
was the budget for the community the writer
served on 15 years ago? Is that community
doing as well as the city of Seminole?
The writer kept telling us he served on the
Charter Revision Committee. How many were
on that committee and many other members
of that committee wanted a strong mayor form
of government?
Again, the true facts will always win out over
guess work. That way, they don't shoot the
messenger.

By definition, luggage is al-
most anything that must be
lugged. Because early hu-
mans didn't travel much,
they had little need for lug-
gage.
But after the invention of
the wheel, devices such as
carts, wagons, and tour
buses began to be seen on
public roads. Travelers want-
ed to carry tooth brushes
and a change of underwear
with them. This required
bundles or boxes. They were
the first suitcases.
Luggage has many forms.
There is no end to the
trunks, suitcases, duffel
bags, grips, satchels,
overnight bags, garment
bags, totes and other devices
that designers and manufac-
turers keep turning out. I
could devote a detailed para-
graph to each variety, but I
won't. And aren't you glad?
I recently went shopping
for a new suitcase. I learned
that it's almost impossible to
buy just one suitcase. They
seem to come in sets of two,
three or even five. I'm not
sure why.
Most pieces of modern lug-
gage have several zippers.
When a suitcase finally
wears out, it's usually the
zippers that give way first.
There should be a Zipper In-
stitute to regulate the manu-
facture and use of zippers.
But no such body exists.
Alas.
The most important ad-
vance in the evolution of lug-
gage was the installation of
wheels on suitcases. That
took place in 1974, the Sam-
sonite people told me. This
could have easily have been
done at almost any time once
suitcases were invented. God
only knows how many other
simple inventions are waiting
to be born, if only someone
would do it.

A version of luggage that
provokes vast rage each year
is the carry-on. Ideally, a
carry-on is any form of light-
weight luggage that can easi-
ly be stowed in the overhead
compartments on an aircraft.
But in reality (at least on the
airplanes I fly on), the aver-
age carry-on is huge. It
weighs 80 pounds and re-
quires an offensive lineman
to jam the carry-on into the
compartment. While the
owner is doing that, he or
she is holding up traffic in
the airplane aisle, causing
other passengers to wait and
the flight crew to postpone
takeoff. This inconsiderate
blockage is then repeated
when the plane lands, as the
carry-on owners try to dis-
lodge their gargantuan suit-
cases from the storage areas.
Some airlines are planning to
charge extra for any carry-on
that cannot be tucked be-
neath passenger seats. I'm
all for that. It will encourage
travelers to store their gear
in the plane's belly. It will
also keep me from wanting
to assault those rude, arro-
gant passengers who bring
their oversize carry-ons
aboard.
A major problem with air-
line luggage is theft. Thou-
sands of items are stolen
each year, presumably by
airline or airport personnel,
who unzip suitcases and
make off with valuable items.
Sometimes entire suitcases
are stolen. This is made easi-
er by the fact that so many

huge words on it. I painted
the word "YELLOW" in bright
yellow; "GREEN" in green;
"RED" in the color red, and
so on. No one could mistake
my suitcase for their own, so
nobody made off with it.
I'm not sure how I'll give
my new suitcase a distin-
guishing look. Perhaps I'll tie
a sexy pair of women's
knickers to the handle. Or a
replica of a human forearm
and hand. But that would at-
tract the security people,
which is the last thing an
airline traveler wishes to do
today.
Baggage handlers are a
vital part of the travel indus-
try. Their presence has led
to one of the unanswered
questions of history: How
much do you tip a baggage
handler? A dollar a bag?
Five bucks? Is the rate the
same in Harrisburg as in
Las Vegas? Should six tiny
suitcases bring the same
size tip as six big pieces?
Does any authority publish
the final word on these
questions?
A piece of luggage is more
than a utilitarian device. A
suitcase is often part of a
dream or an exciting adven-
ture. It can stand for a con-
nection between two or more
people. Where there is lug-
gage, almost always it is ac-
companied by a greeting, a
kiss, a hug, a reunion of
persons who care for each
other. As we stand waiting
at the baggage claim area,
let's remind ourselves that
the objects moving by are
not mere suitcases. They are
symbols of life, chapters of
marvelous stories, treasured
links to memories past and
future.
I say "Huzzah!" for lug-
gage. What say you?

FORUM, from page 6
Bay Pines MHP
development insane
Editor:
I am writing in response to the story "City nears deal on Bay
Pines MHP."
The definition of insanity comes to mind when I read that ar-
ticle; that is, doing the same thing over and over again, and ex-
pecting different results. It is why I am now fully convinced,
that not just on the local, state or federal level, but in terms of
the entire planet, things are going to end very badly in one
more final financial/economic crisis, most likely within four to
six quarters.
So now GMAC wants a deal to change the zoning require-
ments on that property, a property that has been nothing short
of a roadside monument of what went terribly wrong a few
years back. Why is the city, or the bank for that matter as well,
wasting their time on a property that is never going to get devel-
oped? Drive up and down Seminole Boulevard and see plenty of
vacant commercial space. Plenty of empty homes too. Why
bother?
For that matter, drive up and down Gulf Boulevard and see
plenty of vacant lots and empty commercial properties, along-
side plenty of bank-owned condos and beachside homes, none
of which are going to get sold anytime soon. Some of them in
fact, sit condemned as uninhabitable.
Without getting too grandiose on my world economic views, I
wish to bring it down to a local level. I have been coming down
here since I was a kid in the 1970s and now live in my great
aunt's house that she left for the family after she died in 2005. I
moved down here in January 2008 and have, with my own
eyes, witnessed foreclosures and walkaways in my neighbor-
hood. I have to, indirectly, keep an eye on two vacant homes
across the street from me. And I am sick of it. And I cannot be
quiet about it anymore.
What I would suggest, and it may take legislation in Talla-
hassee to do so, is an aggressive land use/bank program where
eminent domain is used to mop up these vacant lots/walka-
ways/foreclosures and turn them into something other than
roadside monuments of The Great Recession.
Banks/sellers/speculators forced to sell at market price, and
not at the price they think it is worth.
The city of Seminole did something similar earlier, when it
took over that one lot with four vacant homes on the northwest
corner of 70th Avenue and 113th Street, simply purchased the
property and added it to the fire station. As someone who lives
a few blocks away, I was glad it was taken care of.
My suggestion for the Bay Pines Mobile Home Park is that,
perhaps in conjunction with the Bay Pines VA, is to make use
of it as another VA/federal government building or perhaps a
park. I can guarantee you 100 percent that the property will
never be developed as residential/commercial. Pinellas County
has been losing people at a pretty steady rate. It is not unlike
my native northeast Ohio. People don't want to live in an eco-
nomically depressed area.
I wish these people would think away from the current policy
of economic expectations. Hoping and wishing is not a reason-
able land use/economic policy; reality must come into play
here.
The current way of approaching these roadside monuments
has been proven to be, to me, one big economic fiction, exposed
in the depths of the financial crisis of 2008. To think otherwise,
meets the aforementioned definition of insanity.

A waste of resources
Editor:
I have read the editorial about the proliferation of prescrip-
tion drugs and the subsequent comments of Bob Dillinger and
Sheriff Coats.
There are calls for a dedicated law enforcement unit, educa-
tion, and expensive monitoring programs which we are hoping
the Legislature will fund. I want to point out that I do take this
problem seriously and mourn with those who have lost family
members.
However, I have heard all this before and know that what is
being suggested is a monumental waste of resources. Sheriff
Coats has used the phrase "it's all about the money" and he
again is right. If no one were buying illicit drugs, there would be
no problem, but that philosophy is lost on the tough-on-crime
crowd.
Asking the Legislature for help is counterproductive. Their
only mantra is stiffer penalties.
A special unit in these times of fiscal crisis? A huge waste of
money.
If you think this will work then it would stand to reason that
with all the money spent in the last 20 years there should be
no illegal drugs in Pinellas County. We all know better.
Putting people in jail only assures someone new will take
their place and provides full employment for the members of
the strategic Diversion Unit playing "Wack a Mole". After all if
there is money to be made someone will always take their
place. Sadly they are usually smarter, better organized and
more vicious.
Addressing the treatment needs of those in pain and provid-
ing addiction services is the most effective way of dealing with
this problem.
Give me the $1.5 million that would be wasted on electronic
monitoring and let me use it on treatment and I'll give you
seven times the value for the buck. Get the DEA to come up
with a standard for the treatment of intractable pain and quit
harassing all physicians who treat intractable pain and we'll
have made a giant step forward.
Treat the addicted, provide proper care for those truly in pain
and you eliminate the revenue source for dealers.
It's the only true solution to the problem

I recently attended an
evening performance at Ruth
Eckerd Hall and enjoyed it thor-
oughly ... but not the host of
characters in the audience.
I have attended events on
New York's Broadway where
men wore suits and women
sparkled in dresses and heels.
Some folks in the Ruth Eckerd
audience, however, saw fit to
show up in shorts and jeans
and acted as if they were at a
grand opening of a second rate
drive-in.
Electronics are banned in
theaters for good reason. But
that didn't stop people from
whispering into their cell
phones and playing with their
Blackberrys during the perfor-
mance. A man in front of me
munched on popcorn, then got
up in the middle of the event
and returned with a bottle of
water. A woman actually
showed up with her two kids
and a box of Dunkin' Donuts
under her arm.
I just think that it was all so

rude, but rudeness seems to be
a way of life these days. I don't
understand why people pay be-
tween $50 and $75 a seat when
performers must compete with
the distractions emanating from
the audience.
I remember a time when peo-
ple actually dressed up to at-
tend the theater, go to church
on Sunday morning or attend
other public events. A suit or a
dress were once mandatory for
air travel. Now people get on
board airliners in shorts, T-
shirts and flip-flops.
There used to be a motto;
clothes make the man (or
woman). Years ago I wore three-
piece suits to work. Women
wore dresses and business
suits. Now folks show up in
bluejeans, sneakers and T-
shirts. Sometimes with obscene

I speculate that modern soci-
ety has gone totally blithe. It
began when businesses began
celebrating casual Fridays, mak-
ing it acceptable to leave behind
the tie and Wingtip shoes. Every
day now is casual day as dress
codes flew out the window in
today's permissive and political-
ly correct society. Some folks
think nothing about tossing a
soda can out a car window at a
red light. Or a burning cigarette
butt on a hot summer day when
the fire hazard level is highest.
Even Michelle Obama man-
aged to show her disdain for
dressing for an occasion. A re-
cent photo depicted her walking
away from Air Force One. Two
Air Force sergeants stood at at-
tention in their dress blues.
Obama was wearing crumpled
shorts, a blouse and sneakers.
As first lady she, who allegedly
represents the U.S., should
know better.
I come from a generation


when people cared about their
appearance. When people apolo-
gized for indiscretions, no mat-
ter how trivial. Now, we listen to
apologies for infidelity, political
corruption, crime and every-
thing else and that makes every-
thing fine. Rudeness and
in-your-face confrontations
seem to be the order of the day.
Once a little old lady, who re-
sembled the epitome of anyone's
grandmother, gave me the bird
on a highway when I sounded
my horn because she was dri-
ving on 1-275 at 50 mph in a 65
mph zone.
Maybe some people in this
"me-me" selfish generation will
never know how it feels to get
dressed up to attend a function
to look and act like ladies and
gentlemen. And that's too bad
because there is a lot to be said
about modern society, and
shoving pop corn and jelly
donuts into your mouth in a
place where things like that
should be forbidden.
Until next time ...

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Your Smile Shouldn't Have a Silver Lining
It isn't that I don't believe that silver lined clouds are beautiful.
It isn't even that I don't like silver. It's just that what people
commonly call silver fillings really isn't silver except in color.
These so-called silver fillings are an amalgam that contains all
kinds of metals, the main one being mercury. Over time, these
fillings wear allowing mercury to enter the body. Usually after
ten years they are no longer sealing the teeth correctly and may
need to be replaced.
I don't use these restorations in my practice. In fact, I haven't
done an amalgam filling in over twenty
years and do not have this material in
my office. The good news is that the
newest fillings have been perfected to
the point where they out perform
amalgam and best of all look like
natural teeth. In reality, the best filling
is no filling. It is true that the health of
your mouth is directly related to the
health of your whole body. When your
mouth is healthy, all of you can be
healthier too!
Of course, there are times when
teeth become damaged because of injury or decay, or simply
because of wear over the years. We take a preventive approach to
preserve and retain more natural teeth and their underlying
structure.
How do we do this? We start by encouraging very early dental
care, beginning before a child is even a year old and preserving
teeth with regular cleaning, fluoride treatment, proper home
care and sealants. But if you are a new adult patient, don't
worry. We can help you keep your teeth whole and healthy too.
Our applied preventive measures help keep anyone's teeth in
their natural, strong condition.
We focus on regular cleaning and screenings so problems can
be caught well before they develop. And if there is a problem,
our restorative treatments are as non-invasive and natural as
medically possible. All of our restorations are custom created
just for you using natural, biocompatible materials for strength,
health and beauty.
To find out more about how our advanced preventive and
restorative dentistry can help you, call us at 727.586.1955 or

SPC names new president
By BOB McCLURE


LARGO A lengthy selection process came to
a close April 13 when members of the St. Peters-
burg College Board of Trustees voted unani-
mously to select William D. Law as the school's
next president.
Law, 61, is the current president of Tallahas-
see Community College and replaces former SPC
president Carl Kuttler who retired Dec. 31.
He is expected to begin his new duties once a
contract is negotiated. Those talks will begin this
week.
Board members Evelyn Bllirakis, Terrence
Brett, Ken Burke, Deveron Gibbons and Richard
Johnston chose Law over Thomas Keegan, presi-
dent of Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Wash.
An earlier vote unanimously eliminated the
other two finalists Paula Gastenveld, assistant
to the chancellor for workforce development for
the Kentucky Community and Technical College
System, Versailles, Ky.; and Kaye Walter, execu-
tive vice president and chief learning officer at
Valencia Community College, Orlando.
"I have been the president of three different
community colleges, each one increasingly more
complex and sophisticated," Law said in his ap-
plication for the SPC presidency. 'The opportu-
nity to advance to the 'top rung' on the
professional ladder at an institution as complex
and multi-dimensional as SPC is exciting and
enticing."
Law, who earlier in his career served as vice
president for instructional and program plan-
ning at St. Petersburg Junior College, was the
choice based on his broad range of experience
and familiarity with the area and state.
He also is a colleague of SPC Seminole Cam-
pus Provost Jim Olliver, who took Laws position
when Law left SPJC in 1988.
"Either one (of the two finalists) would have
been great," said Olliver. "Bill is an outstanding

College is very lucky to have

Law."

professional. St. Petersburg College is very lucky
to have someone the great caliber of Dr. Law."
Scott Daniels, a member of SPC's presidential
search advisory committee, said the selection
was "no surprise."
Prior to Tallahassee Community College, Law
served as president of Montgomery College in
Houston, Texas and Lincoln Land Community
College in Springfield, Ill.
While at Montgomery College, his responsibili-
ties included planning, managing and imple-
menting a $50 million construction budget and
directing a national recruitment effort for more
than 200 faculty members.
While at Tallahassee, Law served as assistant
to the vice chancellor of the Florida Board of Re-
gents and later became the staff director for the
Florida House of Representative's Committee on
Higher Education.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Eng-
lish from LeMoyne College, before earning a
masters degree and a doctorate in postsec-
ondary education at Florida State University.
Law is married and has two sons.
Kuttler announced his plans to retire last
summer. The Board of Trustees immediately
began a search process and formed a 13-mem-
ber search committee, made up of community
leaders as well as members of the college com-
munity, to help with the selection process.

Community gardens focus of public hearings


By SUZETTE PORTER
Community gardens are gaining in popularity throughout the Unit-
ed States, and Pinellas County is no exception.
County commissioners, sitting as the Countywide Planning Author-
ity, scheduled two public hearings, May 18 and June 1, on a proposed
rule amendment regarding agricultural and community garden uses.
The May 18 meeting will take place during the public hearing por-
tion of the commission's regularly scheduled meeting, starting at 6:30
p.m., in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the County Courthouse, 315
Court St. in Clearwater. The June 1 public hearing will begin at 9:30
a.m.
According to a staff report, the proposed amendment would allow
agricultural uses in the residential low and residential urban County-
wide Plan Map categories and allow community gardens in all cate-
gories.
"These amendments would address issues with the current rules
raised by the city of Pinellas Park and Pinellas County with regard to
agricultural uses," the report said.
Pinellas Park and Pinellas County allow agricultural uses in resi-
dential low and residential urban categories to accommodate specific
needs of the community.
For example, Pinellas Park allows horses to be kept on single-family


lots.
Since 2007, the Pinellas Planning Council has been working with
municipalities in an effort to create consistencies between local gov-
ernments' comprehensive plans and land development regulations
and countywide rules.
In February of 2009, the CPA adopted an ordinance amending the
countywide rules to address multiple consistency issues, including an
amendment allowing agricultural use as a primary use in the residen-
tial suburban category.
A report from the Pinellas Planning Council said, "In our discus-
sions with local jurisdictions about the remaining issues to be ad-
dressed in association with the updated determinations of
consistency, the PPC staff has concluded that it would be appropriate
to recommend amendments to the rules, allowing agricultural uses in
the residential low and residential urban categories."
The PPC approved the recommended changes to the countywide
rules on March 17, and county staff concurred.
The proposed amendment defines a community garden as "uses
that share a single piece of land gardened collectively by a group of
people in contrast to an individual's personal garden on a single lot ....
They may be 'publicly' functioning in terms of ownership, access
and/or management, as well as owned in trust by local governments
and nonprofits."

The PAC gave as an example the city of Dunedin, who working with
a group of residents to develop a community garden in an open area
near a city tennis court, fire station and other institutional uses.
Staff gave several benefits of community gardening, including pro-
viding access to fresh produce and plants, as well as encouraging
neighborhood improvement and a sense of community, recreation
and connection to the environment.
The PAC staff also recommends amending the rules to allow com-
munity garden uses as a second use in the recreation/open space
category, thus making it allowable in all categories.
Staff said that some local governments including Safety Harbor, St.
Petersburg, as well as Pinellas County have already amended land
use regulations to allow for community gardens in multiple future
land use plan categories.
'The proposed amendments to the countywide rules are broader
than these local governments' regulations, allowing further refinement
by each local government as they see fit," the PAC said in a separate
report.
County officials expect that additional local governments will take
action to allow community gardens and the county's amendment to
the rules would "provide flexibility for each local government to amend
their local plans and land development regulations to permit the use
of community gardens as they determine appropriate."

Do You Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer?
Skin cancer is very common in the sunshine state. The American
Cancer Society estimates that there are over 1 million cases of skin
cancer per year in the United States. While most cancers are curable
when treated early, many are detected too late and can be deadly. 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,
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

Brosnan narrates 'Oceans' while Lopez opts for 'The Back-up Plan'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Oceans'
Genre: Documentary
Cast: Pierce Brosnan
Director: Jacques Cluzaud, Jacques Perrin
Rated: G
Disneynature, the studio that presented the
record-breaking film "Earth," brings "Oceans"
to the big screen on Earth Day.
Nearly three-quarters of the Earth's surface
is covered by water and "Oceans" boldly chron-
icles the mysteries that lie beneath. Directors
Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud dive
deep into the very waters that sustain all of
mankind, exploring the harsh reality and the
amazing creatures that live within. Featuring
spectacular, never-before-seen imagery cap-
tured by the latest underwater technologies,
"Oceans" offers an unprecedented look be-
neath the sea in a powerful motion picture
that unfolds on April 22, 2010.

'The Back-up Plan'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Michaela Watkins, Jennifer Lopez,
Alex O'Loughlin, Noureen DeWulf and Melissa
McCarthy
Director: Alan Poul


Rated: PG-13
The "Back-up Plan" is a comedy that ex-
plores dating, love, marriage and family in re-
verse.
After years of dating, Zoe (Jennifer Lopez)
has decided waiting for the right one is taking
too long. Determined to become a mother, she
commits to a plan, makes a doctor's appoint-
ment and decides to go it alone. That same
day, Zoe meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) a
man with real possibilities.
Trying to nurture a budding relationship
and hide the early signs of pregnancy be-
comes a comedy of errors for Zoe and creates
confusing signals for Stan. When Zoe ner-
vously reveals the reason for her unpre-
dictable behavior, Stan considers his unusual
future but eventually says he's in. Never be-
fore has love seen a courtship where a wild
night of sex involves three in a bed Stan,
Zoe and the ever-present massive pregnancy
pillow. The real pregnancy test comes when
both of them realize they really don't know
each other outside of hormonal chaos and
birth preparations. With the nine month clock
ticking, both begin to experience cold feet.
Anyone can fall in love, get married and have
a baby but doing it backwards in hyper-drive
could be proof positive that they were made
for each other.

'The Losers'

Making good use of the fact that they are

'Best Worst Movie'
Genre: Documentary
Director: Michael Paul Stephenson
Not rated
"Best Worst Movie" is the acclaimed feature length docu-
mentary that takes an off-beat journey into the undisputed
worst movie in cinematic history: 'Troll 2."
In 1989, when an Italian filmmaker and unwitting Utah ac-
tors shot the ultra-low budget horror film, "Troll 2," they had
no idea that 20 years later they would be celebrated world-
wide for their legendary ineptitude.
Two decades later, the film's now-grown-up child star
(Michael Paul Stephenson) unravels the improbable, heartfelt
story of the Alabama dentist-turned-cult movie icon and the

Italian filmmaker who come to terms with this genuine, in-
ternationally revered cinematic failure.
Is 'Troll 2" really the worst movie ever made as claimed by
IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes? Or is 'Troll 2," as some would
claim, a misunderstood masterpiece that never fails to enter-
tain ... a work of genius? Now, 20 years after 'Troll 2" was
made, the feature length documentary "Best Worst Movie"
will explore the 'Troll 2" phenomenon through the personal
story of the cast of characters that took part in its creation
and uncover why it is celebrated by fans worldwide.

Cool water isn't helping


The transition into spring is
taking longer than expected.
Although we've had a long
stretch of normal weather for
this time of year, the gulf
water temperature just doesn't
want to warm up.
At last check our near-
shore water temperatures was
68 degrees, and the inshore
temp is fluctuating between 71
to 74 degrees. It's the warmer
inshore water that's attracting
the bait fish; many of the area
bridges have a good mix of
scaled sardines and threadfin
herring cruising the shadow
lines at night.
Trout, redfish and even
some snook are responding
well to the arrival of the pro-
tein rich baits that will provide
the fat content necessary to
bring our inshore fish up to
speed after a very long lean
winter.
Look for the best trout ac-

tion to occur around deep
grass flats near the passes;
these flats often load up with
bait and the trout seem to
know. Deep diving pelicans
are a dead giveaway that there
is some bigger bait on that
particular flat. Notice how the
birds usually dive right on the
edge where the sand meets the
grass. That is the same area
that the trout will be holding
in. Fishing with a sardine or a
threadfin under a float is the
preferred presentation. This
allows you to control your bait
a little as you try to get it to
drift perfectly along the edge.
As the tide increases, adding a
split shot 6 inches above your


hook will help to keep your
bait in the strike zone.
King fish and Spanish
mackerel numbers are steadily
on the rise despite the cool
gulf temperature and lack of
bait along the beaches. With
warm weather in the forecast
for this weekend, we might fi-
nally see that water temp hold
above 70 degrees, if so the
fishing should get really good
by next week. Currently the
bulk of the kingfish are 5 to 19
miles offshore. If you can get
out there with a live well full of
sardines, you can hook into all
the small schoolie sized fish
you want. There have been a
few big fish caught in closer to
shore, but the majority of the
fish have yet to enter our area.
Until next week get bent!

State accepting applications


for alligator hunting permits


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission will begin accepting applications
May 5 for a chance to obtain highly coveted
permits to participate in the statewide alliga-
tor harvest.
In Phase I, applications will be accepted for
a random drawing from 10 a.m. May 5
through 11:59 p.m. May 18. Approximately
6,000 alligator harvest permits will be avail-
able.
During the Phase I random drawing, each
person can submit only one no-cost applica-
tion, which provides the option of prioritizing
up to five hunt areas and period choices. All
those seeking a harvest permit must be at
least 18 years old by Aug. 15. A permit allows
the harvest of two alligators on a designated
area.
People can submit applications at any
county tax collector's office, license agent (re-
tail outlet that sells hunting and fishing li-
censes), and at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com.
Drawing results will be posted at
MyFWC.com/Hunting; click on "Limited Entry
Hunts," then "Check Permit Availability and
Drawing Results." Successful applicants must
make their trapping license fee payments at
the application locations list above by June 7.
Any permits remaining after June 7 will be
offered during Phase II on a first-come, first-
served basis from 10 a.m. June 9 through
11:59 p.m. June 15. Those who purchased a
permit during Phase I may not apply. Appli-
cants in Phase II are limited to one permit.
If permits are available after Phase II, the
FWC will offer them during Phase III on a
first-come, first-served basis, while they last,


beginning at 10 a.m. June 16. Folks who
purchased a permit in Phase I or II may apply
for additional permits during Phase III.
Successful applicants must submit pay-
ment for an alligator trapping license and two
alligator harvest tags, or provide proof of a
valid alligator trapping license (must be valid
through Nov. 1) and pay the fee for two har-
vest tags. No other hunting licenses are re-
quired.
The cost for a resident alligator trapping li-
cense and alligator harvest tags is $271.50,
and nonresidents pay $1,021.50. The cost for
each additional alligator hunting permit is
$61.50, regardless of residency. All fees are
nonrefundable. Tags and permits are non-
transferable.
An alligator trapping agent license is also
available for $51.50; it allows the license hold-
er to assist permitted trappers in taking alli-
gators.
The alligator hunting season will run 11
consecutive weeks from Aug. 15 through Nov.
1.
To educate participants on the how-to's and
rules and regulations of the hunts, the FWC
offers a no-cost, three-hour training and ori-
entation program, which is held at various lo-
cations throughout the state. Permit
recipients are not required to attend, but the
FWC strongly encourages first-time partici-
pants to go. Courses will be offered in July
and August, and permit holders will receive,
by mail, permit packages listing dates and lo-
cations.

hunts, visit MyFWC.com/Gators.

The heartbreak of psoriasis


Psoriasis is a chronic skin
disease that affects between 1
and 3 percent of the U.S. pop-
ulation.
It can also affect the joints
in up to 40 percent of pa-
tients leading to morning
stiffness, joint aches and
pains and joint destruction.
There are a myriad of new
treatments available in the
past 10 years that provide a
glimpse of hope for those that
have been suffering with pso-
riasis.
Psoriasis vulgaris (common
type) peaks at two points in
life, what is referred to as "bi-
modal peaks" once in the
late 20s and once in the late
50s; however, it may start at
any point in one's life. Al-
though the exact cause is un-
known, infections,
medications and genetics cer-
tainly have a role. A strepto-
coccus (bacterial) infection is
a common trigger for the first
appearance of psoriasis. Nu-
merous medications such as
Beta-Blockers may make pso-
riasis more difficult to control.
There are specific genes that
have been discovered with in-
creased frequency in patients


with psoriasis. Recently, the
"Metabolic Syndrome" has
been associated with psoria-
sis along with increased risks
of heart disease and diabetes.
Psoriasis can have many
presentations in that it may
affect the elbows, knees and
scalp (more common presen-
tation), it may involve the un-
derarms, groin, buttocks and
genitals or it may involve just
about any body surface. It
may be mild (3 percent of
body surface area), moderate
(3 to 10 percent) or severe
(greater than 10 percent). It
also may affect the joints in
what is referred to as "psori-
atic arthritis." There are at
least five subtypes of arthritis,
the most common of which
affects only a few joints (oligo-
asymmetric).
Treatments for psoriasis
are quite extensive today.
There are the topical treat-
ments that have been used
for years, oral medications
and injections.

Biologics or
injections
In the late 1990s, a class of
medications were developed
called biologicss" because
they work on the body's own
immune system to modify the
psoriasis. This is a great ex-
ample of what technology can
do for us in the advancement
of medicine.
There are now many choic-
es of biologics to choose from,
all having their pros and
cons. In general, when a pa-
tient has psoriasis, their im-
mune system (T cells) is
activated and making too
much of some chemical mes-
sengers. These chemical mes-
sengers have fancy names
such as Tumor Necrosis Fac-
tors (TNF) or Interleukins (IL).
The biologic medications act


to decrease these extra
chemical messengers that
are driving the psoriasis. The
more we understand about
psoriasis, the more specific
the medications are becom-
ing and hence, more effec-
tive. Some of the biologic
medications available today
include:
Enbrel (Etanercept)
Humira (Adalimumab)
Remicade (Infliximab)
Symponi (Golimumab)
Stelara (Ustekinumab)
Amevive (Alefacept)
Some of these above med-
ications are also quite effec-
tive in treating and
controlling the psoriatic
arthritis. Some are given at
home by the patient (self-ad-
ministered) and some are
given by the doctor at his or
her office by injection. Some
are given twice weekly, some
once every 12 weeks and
everywhere in between. I have
found the biologics to be a
god send to many of my pa-
tients. I have prescribed these
medications to hundreds of
patients over the past 10
years and it is has been life
changing in many, many
cases.

Ultraviolet
light therapy
Ultraviolet light has been


a treatment for psoriasis for
many years. It is effective in
most cases and in pregnan-
cy, probably the safest way
to go. You may hear about
one of the following types of
ultraviolet treatment:
SUVA
P-UVA
Re-PUVA
UVB
Narrow band UVB
Excimer Laser (UVB)
They all have their place
and you really need to talk
to your doctor about the
best option for you. The
downside is the inconve-
nience of going to the office
for the treatment. The ul-
traviolet exposure also can
lead to premature aging
and increased risks of skin
cancer. In some cases, I
have prescribed home ul-
traviolet boxes for the pa-
tient, but they need to be
seen regularly to ensure
they aren't burning their
skin and are improving. We
don't usually recommend
tanning beds as you just
don't now what type of ul-
traviolet light you are get-
ting, how much, how clean
the beds are, etc.

The metabolic
syndrome
In the past few years, we


have begun to learn that
psoriasis is an inflammatory
disease state that has other
disease associations. One
such association is the meta-
bolic syndrome. This is a
syndrome with six compo-
nents that relate to cardio-
vascular disease (CVD):
Abdominal obesity
Atherogenic dyslipidemia
(cholesterol)
Raised Blood Pressure
Insulin Resistance +/-
glucose intolerance
Proinflammatory state
Prothrombotic state (clot-
ting)
I think it is important to
be aware that if you have
psoriasis, you may be at an
increased risk of cardiovas-
cular disease in the future. It
is best to live as clean as you
can by exercise, proper diet
and seeing your primary care
physician regularly to stay
on top of your health.
This has been a brief re-
view on psoriasis, focusing
on the available treatments.
If you have psoriasis and
haven't been seen for years,
it's worth getting in to see
your dermatologist to re-
evaluate the options. There
is no need for you to experi-
ence the heartbreak of psori-
asis today with all of the
great treatment options we
have.

ers but also local green and sustainable businesses and
community organizations. The event will educate and engage
the public with green information, and feature donations of
