Sheriff host forums
Sheriff Jim Coats, along with
Chief Deputy Bob Gualitieri, has
been hosting forums all around
Pinellas to meet with citizens and
hear their concerns.
He said thus far the forums had
gone well and that some people
had offered some good sugges-
tions.
Coats said the forums were a
way to educate the public and
allow them to ask questions and
make suggestions as he continues
to look at ways to make the best
use of his dwindling resources.

City may provide sign law relief


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO City commissioners, responding to com-
plaints from businesses saying they are suffering in
hard times, expressed support May 11 for a plan to
provide them temporary relief from the sign ordi-
nance.
Commissioner Robert Murray said the signs make
a big difference for businesses. There are so many
businesses along the city streets and "because of the
speeds of the roads, I'm not even aware they are
there," he said.
"It could be the next sale that puts (businesses) in
the black or in the red ... I'm certainly one of those
that shop by looking at signs," Murray said.
Business owners proposed that they be allowed to
select two types of signs from the list of prohibited
signs and that the additional temporary signage be al-
lowed to be displayed continuously subject to a per-
mit.


"I think we are making a good
effort here to come to some
compromise position."
- Mayor Pat Gerard

Commissioners basically are leaning toward allow-
ing businesses to have temporary signage for a maxi-
mum of 30 consecutive days one time per quarter for
a year. They also recommended to their staff that
businesses be allowed to have either a professionally
made banner or a "feather flag" sign from the list of
prohibited signs. The changes would be effective city-
wide.
Under the staffs recommendation, banners must
be securely attached to a building and the feather
flags must be located at least 15 feet away from the
public right of way.


Those issues how long the signs may be displayed
and what type of signs will be allowed sparked de-
bate at the commission's work session.
Commissioner Mary Black said during elections she
sees cars parked all the time with campaign signs on
them.
"If we as a City Commission feels that's OK, we
should allow a business person to advertise his busi-
ness in the same way that we advertise ourselves,"
Black said.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier suggested limiting
the number of types of signs the businesses could use
to two, saying she wants to preserve the "classy look"
along the highways.
She said the businesses didn't say they wanted to
have the option to choose all of the types of prohibited
signs. City officials listed eight examples in their pre-
sentation at the work session.

John's Pass Bridge


ahead of schedule


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND The long
wait for the new John's Pass Bridge
to open is nearly over.
Florida Department of Trans-
portation spokeswoman Kris Carson
said the contract deadline is Febru-
ary and confirmed that Flatiron
Construction of Morrisville, N.C., is
ahead of schedule.
"Flatiron Construction continues
to build the new northbound John's
Pass Bridge," Carson said in an e-
mail. 'The contractor is building the
roadway approaches to the new
northbound bridge and the bridge
deck.
"A lot of work under the new
bridge still remains to be done," she
added "Bridge piers from the old
bridge must be removed. The fender


system for the new bridge (which
protects the piers from boats) must
be finished. Once this is completed
they will switch all the traffic to the
new northbound bridge and finish
the southbound bridge."
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Min-
ning, who heard a construction up-
date May 4 from John Couture,
assistant district manager for Flat-
iron Construction, said the two
northbound lanes are expected to
open within two weeks when the
southbound bridge will be closed to
install protective fenders.
Minning said the entire project
was expected to be complete by the
end of June.
"We are very pleased to learn that
the bridge will be completed ahead

City officials to market

Largo at trade shows


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO City officials say they
mean business when it comes to try-
ing to attract development to Largo.
They plan to attend trade shows
to provide information to developers,
such as what parcels are available
for their projects.
Three city officials will operate a
booth at the International Council of
Shopping Centers Monday, Aug. 16,
through Wednesday Aug. 18, at the
Gaylord Palms Resort and Conven-
tion Center in Kissimmee, said Largo
Economic Development Manager
Teresa Brydon.
'This is going to be big," Brydon
said. "Anybody who wants to do
business in Florida, they come to
this show."
She expects that 5,000 to 7,000
developers and commercial brokers


will attend the show.
City officials are putting together
marketing materials and doing other
work, such as conducting invento-
ries of commercial properties along
corridors, to prepare for the confer-
ence.
They hope to have the inventory of
the commercial properties along cor-
ridors in the West Bay Drive Com-
munity Redevelopment District and
the Clearwater/Largo Road Corridor
Community Redevelopment District
completed for the conference in Au-
gust. Inventories of other key corri-
dors, such as Ulmerton Road, will
follow.
The inventories will enable city of-
ficials "to have a good solid base of
what's going on along our commer-
cial corridors who owns what

Combining therapy with nature

Barrington Terrace residents experience outings that break with traditional programs


By TOM GERMOND
LARGO Many longtime
residents may take getting
sand in their shoes for grant-
ed. That's not the case for
some people with Alzheimer's
Disease.
Barrington Terrace, an as-
sisted living and memory care
residence, has developed a
program that combines out-
ings with therapy, said Trina
Watkins, community liaison
for Barrington.
"Some of our residents
have never put their foot in
the sand," she said.
Typically, assisted living fa-


cilities bus residents to malls,
restaurants or places to play
bingo, Watkins said. But the
emphasis of Barrington's out-
ings is on nature.
"They try to take two or
three people from the secured
unit," she said, "along with 10
assistant living residents so
that they also get the benefit
of not only the outdoors,
wherever the activity will be,
but also the benefits of thera-
py for them."
The staff doesn't want the
residents to feel they are tak-
ing a trip to a doctor's office.
Sometimes it's hard for resi
dents to walk on ground


that's not perfectly flat. Resi-
dents may have difficulty with
balance and dizziness.
"It gives them that opportu-
nity to have a therapy session
but along with having a fun
activity, doing something else,
like a picnic lunch," Watkins
said.
Barrington has a full-time
staff for providing physical
therapy, occupational therapy
and speech therapy. Pat His-
cox, the activity director, and
Dr. David Kerns, the therapy
team leader, go on the out-
ings with a therapist or two

THERAPY, from page 2

and sometimes a volunteer or
an aide.
The trips are taken on
the fourth Thursday of
every month. Residents
visit beaches and parks.
They walk, play games and
enjoy other light activities.
"It's just a new thing. I
think it's so unique. When
you think about people
with Alzheimer's just to
be outside in the park to
create an awareness for
them ... just to get a spark
out of them, hearing a bird
chirp," Watkins said.
The program was started
about six months ago and
is evolving. Both Hiscox
and Kerns, who has a doc-
torate in physical therapy,
are trying to come up with
new ideas to incorporate a
therapy session with out-
door activities.
'This way they are doing
that mind, body, spirit kind
of thing," Watkins said.
On trips, besides walk-
ing, residents may play
horseshoes or throw a big
ball to help them develop
dexterity.
"Horseshoes is a fun
game, yet they are getting
that motion with their


body," Watkins said. "They
are using muscle."
Residents look forward to
the outings, Watkins said.
'They absolutely love it.
Since they do it once a
month, naturally they try to
take a different group each
time. Of course, everybody
wants to go," Watkins said.
Enough staff should be
available to have nearly
one-on-one relationships,
Watkins said.
"They narrow it down to
where it's manageable and
fun," she said. "Enough
people so it's not too small
but you have that interac-
tion of conversations."
Hiscox, who has 20 years
of experience in her field is
"extremely creative" and
"has an incredible way with
people," Watkins said.
She tries to do whatever
it takes to have something
for a person to do, "whether
it's hold a pen, or try to
color in the lines or to pick
up an object they never
held in their hand and tell
them throw it."
"They see other people
doing it, too, that you have
to think in their minds that
it can bring a lot of joy, an
accomplishment whatever
stage their mind is at,"

cured.
A recent outing was a
trip to Walsingham Park,

staff plan to take advan-
tage of many other outdoor
venues in the county.
"Why wouldn't you want
to combine a medical situ-
ation, so to speak,"
Watkins said, "along with
your activities to make
things not only more inter-
esting but fun."


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO A new nonprofit
organization has asked the
city to keep open the nature
center at McGough Park.
Pat Edmond, president of
Friends of McGough, Bonner
and the Nature Preserve, tout-
ed the value of the center to
city commissioners May 4.
City officials have said the
closing of the center is an op-
tion for city officials to deal
with the projected budget
shortfall for the next fiscal
year.
The group is trying to find
ways to come up with pro-
grams that raise revenue to
offset some of the mainte-
nance costs of the parks, Ed-
mond said.
'The city has spent a lot of
money building and maintain-
ing these parks," she said.

center help citizens learn

parks, she said.
"If you close the nature cen-
ter at McGough, you close
down the core and the epicen-
ter of those programs," she
said. "You lose your informed
citizenship. That citizenship
informed is part of the voting
public that OKs the funds to
keep these parks going, and
you're going to lose that."
The city has set aside a lot
of land at taxpayers' expense,
she said, that citizens want to

Commissioner Harriet
Crozier said that since the city
is going to get a lot of people
talking to the commission
about the nature center, she
asked staff to find out what
the total cost of closing the
nature center would be.
"I'm not suggesting any-
thing. I just think we haven't
received a budget yet," she
said, asking that it be includ-
ed in the weekly city manag-
er's report.
City officials said the net
savings to the city if the na-
ture center is closed would be
$55,800. The budget would
reflect both a reduction in ex-
penditures, $124,600, and a
reduction in revenue $68,800.
The revenue is derived from
both summer camp and na-
ture programming throughout
the year.

County officials close door on pain management


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Stories of personal tragedy, punctuated
with tears and passionate pleas for help, dominated a por-
tion of the May 4 Pinellas County Commission meeting.
Commissioner Susan Latvala brought the issue of pain
management clinics to the table in April when she requested
consideration of a six-month moratorium and other mea-
sures to help local law enforcement and other officials com-
bat a problem that some say is now an epidemic.
The commissioners heard testimony from law enforce-
ment, judicial representatives, a state legislator, school board
member, medical doctors and a man who has a radio show
devoted to prescription drug addiction and abuse.
They also listened to parents and other family members tell
stories about how prescription drug abuse had changed their
lives forever. Many told the commissioners about sons or
daughters who had died from their drug addictions. Others
talked about their children who were still alive, yet addicted.
More than one broke down in tears.
The only opposition came from people who didn't think the
provisions in the ordinance would do enough to help, those
concerned it might prevent legitimate uses of pain manage-
ment clinics and one who believes the problem is the state's
responsibility.
'This is not a silver bullet," Latvala said.
However, most everyone agreed the ordinance was a good
first step and would allow local law enforcement to pursue
more aggressively those clinics that were nothing more than
pill mills.
Several parents told stories about their children getting

LAW, from page 1
"Giving them eight choices, I'm not crazy about that because some
of them are gaudy, tacky," she said.
Commissioner Woody Brown said that if "everybody has all these
signs on this list, you are going to look straight forward and not see
any signs."
"I think it's a fallacy to say these signs are going to make or break
the business. I do. And I'm a business owner," Brown said.
He said he has mixed feelings on the issue. He was in favor of re-
ducing or eliminating the permit fee to allow businesses to advertise
special events in creative ways.
Brown also said he has spoken to residents and businesses down-
town who said they love improvements made downtown and along
the Clearwater-Largo Road and don't want it to become "tacky or
they don't want to go backwards."
Commissioner Gigi Arntzen said people are not buying as they
were before and she was not "sure that we should be relaxing our
rules to accommodate that change in buying." She also was con-
cerned about monitoring the 30-day restriction.
"I think weekends are going to be a free-for-all," she said.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said the commission has to take ac-
tion citywide, as opposed to relaxing standards just in the communi-
ty redevelopment districts, or it will be discriminatory.
He also said the city needs to "back off on these folks."
"It's a bad business environment now," he said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said it was difficult to change the sign ordi-
nance "in the first place."
The ordinance was adopted in 2007 and amended in 2009.
"I think we are making a good effort here to come to some com-
promise position," Gerard said, "but whatever we give them is going
to be really hard to take away a year from now."
In other matters, commissioners are working toward asking voters
to extend their terms from three to four years and holding their city
elections strictly in conjunction with county elections, which occur
every two years. Currently, the city's elections are held annually in
November.
City officials say increased voter turnout and saving money in
election costs make it prudent for the commission to examine the
cost-effectiveness of continuing to conduct elections on an annual
basis.
The City Commission gave staff the OK to prepare a charter
amendment to change the terms of office of the mayor and city com-
missioners to four years.

clinics. They talked about a system that made it easy to stay
addicted.
One woman who has a family member addicted to pre-
scription drugs told the commissioners that clinics don't
make a person become an addict, but they facilitate a per-
son's addiction.
'They make it so easy for people to stay addicts," she said.
"We need to stop making it easy."
Another agreed and said the ordinance was at least a
Band-Aid for the problem.
"And we all know Band-Aids stop the bleeding," she said.
The final version of the ordinance, approved unanimously,
calls for a six-month moratorium on the registration of any
new pain management clinics in the county, beginning 30
days from May 7 or the date the ordinance is filed with the
state.
The countywide ordinance also calls for pain management
clinics to be registered that process also begins in 30 days,
which is the time staff says it needs to prepare the forms and
get ready to maintain a database of registrants, as required
by the new county laws.
To qualify for a county permit, pain management clinics
must first register with the state. Some clinics are exempt
from the process. Exemptions include: clinics with the ma-
jority of its physicians providing surgical services, a clinic af-
filiated with a accredited medical school that provides
training, a clinic owned by a publicly held corporation whose
shares are traded on a national exchange or the over-the-
counter market and whose total assets at the end of the cor-
poration's most recent fiscal quarter exceeded $50 million


and others.
Only those clinics registered with the state on the date the
moratorium becomes effective can apply for a permit to oper-
ate in Pinellas County.
Commission Chair Karen Williams Seel expressed concern
about the exemptions and about the four clinics that cur-
rently have registration applications pending at the state
level. She insisted that the ordinance be written only to allow
those with approved registrations on the ordinance's effective
date. According to the state Department of Health, 50 to 60
clinics are currently registered in Pinellas County.
The draft was amended to remove a provision for pending
registrations.
Provisions for a task force contained in a draft version of
the ordinance also were eliminated because the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office already has a task force in the works.
Tim Burns, director of Pinellas County Justice and Con-
sumer Services, made some suggestions for future action to
be taken at the state or local level, including limiting the
amount of drugs that can be bought with cash to a 72-hour
supply; required training for personnel; additional rules for
dispensing; additional inspections; requiring a physician to
be the owner of the clinic; placing limitations on advertising;
and requiring full disclosure of the owners and the dis-
pensers of the drugs.
Meanwhile, those with family members addicted to pre-
scription drugs will continue to try to cope any way they can,
including this man whose son almost died from his addic-
tion.
"Today he's in jail," he said. "I feel good he's in jail. He's
safe at least. He's alive."

City commissioners recently ap-
proved an updated plan for the West
Bay district, which, basically, is down-
town Largo. They hope the plan will at-
tract new development downtown

planning tools.
The city owns property along the
West Bay Drive that officials don't ex-
pect to put on the market soon be-
cause of the economy. Also, city
officials are trying to have "a better un-
derstanding of what's going to go
there," Brydon said.
But at the conference, by discussing
Largo's two redevelopment districts,
city officials will stimulate interest so
when they get ready to market those

formation out that we have those prop-

The city also has created a four-page
economic profile online that provides
extensive data on Largo.
"Our focus has been to gather the
data that we know is important to 'site
recruiters' as well as developers," she
said.
Other recent economic development
activities include an update of the West
Bay Drive Community Redevelopment
District report that was presented to
city commissioners a couple of months
ago.
'That was the first next big piece of
marketing material," she said. 'This
year we took it to the next level. We did
images. We talked about projects. We
put the required data in, but we kicked
it up a notch, and now we are going to

about downtown Largo."

When complete, the bridge will feature
dual 12-foot lanes in each direction, 8-
foot sidewalks on each side, four obser-

new bridge tender house.
The bridge will be 8 feet higher above
the pass and the channel underneath
will be 40 feet wider.


Brydon, who has been working for
the city for two years, said "we have
been trying to create 'a buzz' in the
business world."
"We updated our Web sites and I
think that was a big initiative that we
have done. We have thrown a lot of
data out there that wasn't available,"
she said.
The data included permits issued,
dollar values of permits, acres of land
annexed and other information that
was not available from other sources -
plenty of fodder for the upcoming trade

This will be the first time the city has
participated in the International Coun-
cil of Shopping Centers' Florida trade

County OKs animal services changes


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously
approved on May 4 several changes to its Animal Services ordi-
nance.
Not everyone agreed with the wording for the new tethering law.
Commissioner John Morroni lobbied to make the county's ordi-
nance match the city of Seminole's, which does not allow any teth-
ering.
Morroni was supported by former Seminole Councilor Dan Hes-
ter and a couple of others who gave public testimony during the
meeting.
However, fellow commissioners failed to approve his amend-
ment, favoring the rules proposed by staff that allows for tempo-
rary tethering of animals.
Dr. Dewayne Taylor, assistant director of Pinellas County Ani-
mal Services, said tethering could be done responsibly and there
was no reason not to allow people to do so while performing a spe-
cific task and for a reasonable period of time.
He was supported by Connie Brooks with SPCA Tampa Bay,
who said that organization supported the tethering ordinance 100
percent, and several others.
Commissioner Ken Welch said he supported the less restrictive
language because without it some people might have to give up
their animals.
Taylor pointed out that the tethering rules were meant to give
animal services staff a way to combat the problem of people leav-
ing their animals chained outside 24/7. The ordinance says that
no dog can be tethered, fastened, chained, tied or restrained to a
doghouse, tree, fence or any other stationary object except for
the temporary allowance.
In addition, dogs can be attached to a running line, pulley or
trolley system as long as it is not attached via a choke-type, pinch-
type, prong-type or improperly fitting collar.
Other requirements include that the tether must be at least five
times the length of the dog's body; terminate at both ends with a
swivel; and not weigh more than 1/8 of the dog's weight.
The dog must not be tethered in a way that would cause in-
jury, strangulation or entanglement and it must be free of tan-
gles.
Dogs cannot be left tethered during extreme weather, including
extreme heat, near-freezing temperatures, thunderstorms, torna-
does, tropical storms or hurricanes, and the animal must have ac-
cess to water, adequate shelter and dry ground.
Puppies less than 6 months old, and those sick or injured can-
not be tethered.
Persons found in violation of the tethering ordinance could be
fined up to $500.
Taylor said enforcement of the tethering law would come from
investigations of complaints and from help from local animal orga-

nizations. To report a person violating the tethering law, call ani-
mal services at 582-2600.
Several people objected to a proposed change in holding time for
stray animals. Taylor and his staff had suggested changing the
time that animals with identification are kept from 10 days to
seven days and animals without identification from five days to
three days.
People said three days wasn't enough time, even though Taylor
said most animals were claimed within three to four days. The
commission requested that the ordinance be amended to keep an-
imals without ID for four days.
Taylor said there was a problem with keeping animals too long
at the shelter due to stress and disease.
'The healthier animals I can get out to adoptions the better," he
said.
One woman complained that animal services would not give in-
formation about missing pets over the phone.
Taylor explained that it is difficult to identify animals from a
physical description. He said he did not want his staff responsible
for telling a caller that their animal was not at the shelter due to a
bad description.
Suggestions were made to seek volunteer photographers and
work on getting the photos of animals posted on the county's Web
site in real time.
People who have a missing pet can call the Lost or Found Pets
Hotline at 582-2604, visit the shelter at 12450 Ulmerton Road or
visit www.pcsoweb.com/cares to post a lost pet's description or
photo.
Commissioners listened to supporters of a change to the defini-
tion of vicious animal. Several told stories about how their beloved
pets had been attacked without cause. One man was walking his
beagle, Molly, when she was attacked and killed by two pit bulls.
'There was nothing I could do," he said.
A woman told about her dog that was killed in her own back-
yard by a dog that jumped the fence. She said the law prevented
animal services from doing anything until the aggressive dog had
killed twice. Changing the number of attacks from two to one
would prevent such animals from getting a second chance to kill
again, she said.
The fourth change to the ordinance makes it a requirement to
submit a written statement about an incident involving a danger-
ous animal within 30 days, which Taylor said would allow animal
services to deal with those cases more efficiently.

TBARTA OKs plan to

merge with Bay Area

Communter Services
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority
board of directors agreed April 30 to merge the operations
of Bay Area Commuter Services into TBARTA, making
TBARTA responsible for a variety of commuter services
serving Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas
counties.
"TBARTA and BACS have a shared mission and respon-
sibility of improving mobility and providing transportation
options for people in the Tampa Bay region," said Ronnie
Duncan, chairman of the TBARTA board of directors. "This
union will help us increase program effectiveness, decrease
overall costs and take advantage of efficiencies which can
be accomplished through the co-location and combination
of both organizations' programs and operations."
Bay Area Commuter Services is one of the Florida De-
partment of Transportation's nine commuter assistance
programs within the state. Created in 1992, BACS is a pri-
vate, nonprofit organization founded and funded by the
State of Florida Department of Transportation to promote
transportation options to the single-occupant vehicle in the
Tampa Bay area and surrounding counties.
Some of the programs and commuter services that
TBARTA will continue to provide include: carpool and com-
muter vanpool matching; working with businesses on pro-
grams such as compressed work week and variable work
hour strategies; teaching businesses and organizations
how to telework; and other transportation mobility, fuel re-
duction and congestion reducing strategies.
Under the merger agreement, the BACS board of direc-
tors will become an advisory body to TBARTA concerning
commuter assistance and mobility programs within the
TBARTA governance and operations structure.
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority
was created by the Florida Legislature in 2007 to plan and
develop a multimodal transportation system that will con-
nect the seven counties of the Tampa Bay region.
TBARTA adopted a legislatively-mandated Regional
Transportation Master Plan for the Tampa Bay region in
May 2009.

Get ready

Efforts to promote plug-in electric vehicles
and increase consumers' acceptance of electric
vehicles are under way in the area.
Get Ready Tampa Bay, a coalition of local
governments, regional agencies, businesses
and other entities, is committed to preparing
the area for the early release and integration of
plug-in electric vehicles.
Some of the goals are to attract vehicles
manufacturers to early-release vehicles in the
Tampa Bay area, create a positive economic
impact and green jobs growth, reduce vehicle
emissions, increase use of alternative and or
innovative energy and increase energy inde-
pendence from foreign sources.
Such efforts are prudent because the federal
government has set a target of at least 1 mil-
lion plug-in electric vehicles in service by
2015, reducing the reliance on imported petro-
leum products.
Studies show that the use of electric vehi-
cles could significantly reduce greenhouse gas
emissions.
The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council
is providing strong support for the program,
and it would behoove all local governments to
keep informed about issues pertaining to vehi-
cles.
Among those issues are educating electri-
cians and building inspectors to expedite the
permitting and installation process and updat-
ing codes to accommodate the installation of
charging stations in public and private loca-
tions.


Leader, May 13, 2010


The extent to which electric vehicles will af-
fect the future of transportation in the world
remains to be seen.
Nevertheless, they're coming.

Lester Aradi has provided strong level-head-
ed leadership during his nine years as police
chief for the city of Largo.
Retiring June 1 after a 36-year career in law
enforcement, Aradi has brought many im-
provements to the police department, such as
new technology. His involvement in the com-
munity and support for many important initia-
tives has made a difference beyond the city's
borders, such as having a lead role in estab-
lishing the Silver Alert program two years ago
to help locate missing seniors.
Aradi's ability to be flexible also has been an
asset for the city, particularly during the lean
fiscal years. The department continues to pro-
vide good service, despite undergoing budget
cuts.
Meanwhile, City Manager Mac Craig ap-
pears to have made the right move in naming
John Carroll as the city's next police chief.
Chief Deputy Carroll, a longtime Largo resi-
dent and 30-year veteran of the department,
has an outstanding track record and the re-
spect of city officials.
He has received high marks in his evalua-
tions over the years and, according to Aradi,
"lives and breathes good leadership."
In Aradi's own words, he leaves the depart-
ment in extremely capable hands.

The sky won't fall if
Amendment 4 passes
Re: "Council says no to Amendment 4" -
Seminole Beacon, May 4
Editor:
Opponents of Amendment 4, the develop-
ment and home building industry, have been
successful in scaring many local governments
with misinformation. Unfortunately, many
local governments aren't even researching
these bogus claims. They're just accepting
them and passing resolutions saying that the
sky will fall if Amendment 4 is passed.
Overdevelopment helped crash Florida's
economy. We currently have over 400,000 va-
cant dwellings. Local governments helped
create the building boom by charging artifi-
cially low impact fees to builders along with
not forcing them to fully fund the needed in-
frastructure (roads, schools, water, sewer,
safety). In spite of what politicians tell their
constituents, development doesn't pay for it-
self, and there are numerous studies that
have proven that (in Jacksonville, Sarasota,
Fort Myers, Hillsborough to name a few). In
both commercial and residential development
it costs government more to provide the ser-
vices than what it receives in the new tax rev-
enue that's generated.
Our long range growth plans that are re-
quired by state law are meant to place ser-
vices and population in an organized and
efficient manner so as to improve our quality
of life, prevent sprawl and keep taxes lower.
But these well thought out plans are con-
stantly being changed every time a developer
wants to build something that conflicts with
existing plans. Instead of asking developers to
conform to our plans, our local governments
quickly cave-in and approve the plan
changes. This is occurring in every county of
Florida at an alarming rate because our
politicians can't seem to say no to developers.
If you look at most politicians' campaign con-
tribution records, they receive a sizable
amount from development interests (in some
cases more than 50 percent). Consider that
fact along with the fact that they approve
most of the plan changes that are submitted
by developers. As an example, the Hillsbor-
ough County Commission approves over 92
percent of submitted plan changes.
Most counties are in dire straits because of
overdevelopment with inadequate infrastruc-
ture. Does the Legislature, the local politi-
cians, the chambers of commerce offer a
solution? No, their solution is more of the
same. They say, don't change anything ... we
like it this way ... we need to make it easier
for developers so they can quickly build more
homes ... we'll have to raise your taxes to fix
roads and provide basic services, but it's
worked well for us here in government and
our business partners love it, too.
What will Amendment 4 do?


It will provide a simple and balanced ap-
proach to planning for our communities
It adds only more steps to the existing
process for changing growth plans
Citizens will have a say in the future of
their communities. Shouldn't we have mean-
ingful input into deciding where the next
3,000 home subdivision will go, or the next
airport, or the next supermall?
It will help force business interests/de-
velopers to stick to a community's growth
plan
Local governments will be more cautious
in approving developer-initiated changes be-
cause citizens will have the ability to veto bad
growth decisions
As the number of privately-initiated
amendments goes down, process costs will
decrease. Governments will be able to actual-
ly do more long range planning, as a result
The scrubbing, vetting and technical re-
view of changes by county/city planners will
remain in place
The approval of plan changes will still be
in the hands of elected officials as it is today.
The only difference is that voters will have
the option of agreeing or disagreeing with the
officials when the item reaches the ballot, as
the last step in the process.
The only changes that the public will vote
on will be future land use changes on their
respective growth plans. Voters will not have
to vote on any other changes to the plans.
They will not vote on zoning, rezoning, vari-
ances, building permits, etc. Depending on
the size of the county, the estimated number
of ballot items is from one to five items per
election cycle.
Amendment 4 will not stop anyone from
building. Florida is "shovel ready" as we
speak. It does not require a change in the
growth plan to build a building. Current land
use designations that are already in place
across all of the counties in Florida would
allow enough building to accommodate an-
other 100+ million people, without ever mak-
ing another change to the growth plans.
According to data provided by the state's De-
partment of Community Affairs, in the last
four years commercial pre-approvals have in-
creased exponentially more than 1.3 bil-
lion-square-feet of floor area, which would
equate to 13,000 Walmarts. Pre-approved
land is everywhere. When the market re-
bounds there will be nothing to stop busi-
ness from building.
Look at your own community. The bad
growth decisions that we have to live with are
all too obvious. Amendment 4 is needed. We
need a vote on growth.

Facebook has been around
for several years. During that
time I kept hearing of how
popular and successful it has
been. So, finally, a couple of
weeks ago, I joined. By now
I'm starting to wonder what
all the fuss is about.
One major goal of belonging
to Facebook is to claim as
many "friends" as possible.
The definition of "friend" is
quite flexible. A person can be
listed as one's friend just by
saying so, or agreeing to be
listed. Photographs of each
friend are encouraged. Once a
number of friends has been
assembled and listed, you're
ready to proceed. The ques-
tion is, proceed to what?
What are the purposes of
Facebook?
In the News Feed section of
my Facebook site, a woman
(unknown to me) has asked
how she should get rid of a
hair stuck in her throat. This
elicited a number of respons-
es from other persons, result-
ing in back-and-forth
chit-chat that sounded as if it
had been lifted from Twitter.
Another "feed" by a Tampa
nephew of mine was this
statement: "Guns don't kill
people. Dads of pretty daugh-
ters do." A degree of truth in
that, and I must assume that
Facebook is an outlet for
opinions, large and small,
dealing with guns, throat hair
removal and anything else a
person may want to say. Sort
of like talk radio.
Several people had entries
dealing with Farmville. I gath-
er that's a mythical place, sort
of a game in which partici-
pants grow crops and tend
animals.
Most subscribers to Face-
book are caught between two
conflicting drives. One is to
reveal themselves and make
contact with other humans.


Facebook



Driver's Seat

The second is to keep from
telling too much about them-
selves. Or so it seems to me.
Just this afternoon I heard a
TV warning to Facebook sub-
scribers, telling them not to
publicly state when they're
going to be away on vacation.
That could be an invitation to
burglars to rummage through
your house.
Each Facebook subscriber
is encouraged to give basic in-
formation about himself/her-
self. But that data need not to
be truthful. And, indeed, per-
haps it shouldn't be. All sorts
of predators are out there -
sex perverts, insurance sales-
men, religious proselytizers -
ready to glom on to Facebook
members who give too many
facts.
Facebookers who list bla-
tantly false information are
not likely to be questioned on
it. I gave my birth year as
1902; only one of my friends
noticed it. My grandson, aged
13, listed his marital status
as "widower."
Each Facebook profile sec-
tion has space in which you
can name your favorite
movies, books, and activities
and interests, plus your reli-
gious and political leanings. I
filled out that space generous-
ly, assuming that out there in
Facebook's global network
there might be a few people
with interests common to my
own who'd contact me to
swap hello's. So far no one
has. I guess I should have
listed throat hairs as a con-
cern.
What troubles me most
about Facebook are the indi-


cations that, unless you are
aware of the privacy settings
available to each user, the
outside world can easily ob-
tain information about which
Web sites you visit. That's al-
most the same as letting out-
siders read your most private
thoughts. Newcomers to
Facebook (and this includes
me) would be well advised to
do some studying before
jumping into the action by
posting and befriending every-
one in sight. The tab labeled
"Account," when clicked, gives
you a dropdown menu whose
"Privacy Settings" and "Help
Center" provide all sorts of
useful data. I plan to do some
serious homework there in
coming weeks.
At this stage I'm tempted to
regard Facebook as a harm-
less, somewhat gratifying
time-waster. As I review my
list of friends (both actual and
would-be), I see that I already
have phone numbers or e-
mail addresses for most of
them. This raises the question
of why I should bother with
Facebook to keep in touch
with them, especially when
my messages to and from
them will be on display to the
eyeballs of every Facebook
subscriber from here to Bei-
jing.
But I could be wrong.
Shortsighted. Completely
missing the Facebook boat.
For all I know, Facebook
could be my breakthrough
out of my lifelong introverted
lifestyle into a new world of
unlimited acquaintances,
stimulating ideas and Inter-
net adventures. Time will tell.
It always does. But often it
tells us too late.
Hey, I think I'll put that lit-
tle pearl of wisdom on my
Facebook page.

My mother's stories


Mother's Day and my
birthday always fall in the
same week. This year, 27
doesn't invoke the breathless
anticipation of youth, allow-
ing for the opportunity to ac-
tually reflect on both events.
Two women's stories inter-
twining into one.
As a little girl, I cherished
bedtime rituals with both
parents: Storytime with dad
as we read countless classics
together, one chapter at a
time; quiet time with mom as
she rubbed my back and we
talked about the day. But
one of my favorite rituals
with mom was when I would
ask her to tell me stories of
when she was a little girl.
I loved to imagine my mom
as a girl my age small,
quiet, imaginative, her raven
hair glistening in the Nebras-
ka sun on her grandparents'
farm, where many of her sto-
ries took place. Delightful
misadventures with her two
brothers and her best friend,
Allison, always thrilled me.
One summer, mom and
her older brother, Chris,
heard their grandfather com-
plain about the weasels get-
ting into their crops. Being
loving, concerned grandchil-
dren, they wanted to help.
They'd build weasel traps.
They dug holes and carefully
hid the opening with a layer
of sticks and brush. That'd
catch those blasted weasels,
and oh, wouldn't grandpa be
so proud?
Perhaps "proud" wasn't the
appropriate word. "Livid,"
"infuriated," or "exasperated"
were much more fitting the
next day after his tractor fell
into their weasel trap, bend-
ing the axle.
Another time, Chris, al-
ways up for torturing his lit-
tle sister, hid in the chicken
coop and cried out in a pan-
icked voice, "Come quick,
Ginevilve! Help! No, there's
no time to grab shoes." My
worried mother ran to her
brother's aid, chicken poop
squishing between her bare
toes. Her concern melted into
anger and betrayal as her
brother's laughter echoed
through the coop.
Mom and her friend, Alli-
son, also found plenty of
mischief all on their own. Not
that they meant to cause
trouble. As conscientious lit-
tle girls, they knew it was
dangerous to play with fire or
the stove, but they couldn't
fight their craving for
s'mores. They did know,
however, how to use the
toaster safely. Therefore, they
didn't think anything of it
when they popped a few
marshmallows into the toast-
er. Until disaster ensued.
And they'd ruined Allison's
mother's toaster.

make them say "Ewww," so
of course I delighted in the
time when mom's family had
a rabbit as a pet who some-
times hopped around the
house. My mom's little broth-
er, Tony, was a baby at the
time. A baby who loved
raisins. Yeah. Those little
round, brown things he
picked up from the floor and
ate were NOT raisins,
though. "Eeewwww!"
Animal stories were always
a hit as well. I loved hearing
about my mom's cats and
kittens, especially because
until my parents divorced,
we weren't allowed to get a
cat because of my dad's aller-
gies. My grandpa had built
mom a treehouse dollhouse,
complete with tiny windows
with curtains and window
boxes. Her kittens loved to
crawl inside any of the tree-
house's three stories and
stick their tiny paws out of
the windows to play. I always
thought of that when I played
with the treehouse after she
passed it down to me.
Perhaps part of the reason
I loved mom's stories so
much is because they were
my first glimpse of her other
than her exalted role as
Mom. Maybe, just maybe,
she was also a girl like me.
Mom and I have different
yet shared stories and have
led different yet intertwined
lives. She nurtured me then
let me go. And again I realize
that my mom isn't just Mom.
She's also a woman like me.
And I'm happy to celebrate
both of our lives and their in-
terconnectedness this week.
Happy Mother's Day,
mom. And thanks for having
me. I'm proud to be your
first-born.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Finding the Right Doctor To Care For
Your Smile
That may sound like an obvious title for an article all about myself But I seriously think
it is an important question. I know some folks who choose their medical care by looking for
the most appealing ad in the yellow pages. I suggest a little more research, especially when
you are looking for a health-centered or cosmetic dentist.
Here is a quick checklist you could look through when selecting your dentist.
Be direct. Ask the doctor to discuss training and credentials with you. Don't be
intimidated. This is really important because cosmetic dentistry is not a board-certified
specialty. That means that any dentist can call him or herself a cosmetic dentist with no more
than basic dental school education. There is
something to say for years of experience and training.
Be certain that the before and after photos belong
to real patients of that particular doctor. Dentists can
purchase stock photos for advertising purposes, so be
sure of what you are looking at.
The best dentistry comes from focused attention
on an individual patient. A busy, bustling practice
means that the dentist is required to check on many
patients throughout the day. Your family deserves a
doctor who can spend time with you without
interruption or rushing.
p Look for a practice that utilizes up to date
modern equipment. Used with skill, technology
allows dentists to be more accurate, more conservative
in care, and keeps your procedure as comfortable as possible.
Finally, good communication skills are critical for the treatment to be a success. The
doctor must listen and understand the goals and desires of the patient so the outcome is
predictable and meets the patient's expectations.
With just a little homework up front, you'll be sure to find a dentist who combines
training, skill, artistry and style for great results and beautiful health.
Here's the bit about myself.
I really do care about my patients. They are my ultimate priority, and I am passionate
about learning everything there is to know so I can give them the best that dentistry has to
offer. This keeps myself and my staff informed on the very latest advances and techniques. I
always listen to your needs and answer all your questions.
I grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School in
1981. My wife Kathy, an RN at Morton Plant, and I moved to Florida shortly afterwards.
We have four children. Our oldest son is a pilot in the US Navy, next is in construction
management and living in New York City, the third is studying Architecture. All are
University of Florida Gators. Our daughter is a high school student.
I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and
the Academy of General Dentistry, and have done additional training in cosmetic and
neuromuscular dentistry at the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental
Studies. In addition to this training, I have studied with the American Academy of Dental
Sleep Medicine and orthodontics at the United States Dental Institute.
I love what I do, and I love my patients.

None of their business
Editor:
Everyone is entitled to their opinion on this matter of
prayer at the council meetings. Freedom of speech and
religion are guarantees that we all cherish.
I do have an issue though that caught my attention
in the article. There were speakers from Odessa, Tampa
and St. Petersburg there that were protesting the
prayers. I have a problem with that. This is my city. I
live here, you don't. Go voice your opinions to your city
council meetings. Why are we wasting council time on
listening to speakers who don't even live in our city?
Citizens of Pinellas Park should be the ones who should
have a say at Pinellas Park City Council meetings. I am
not going to Odessa to voice my opinion on any issue
there. It is none of my business.
Let's have citizens of Pinellas Park voice there opin-
ions and concerns with our City Council.

Sheriff Coats takes his cause to the streets


By SUZETTE PORTER

Pinellas County Sheriff Jim Coats wants the
public to know about all the operations and ser-
vices his office provides.
He said it is especially important that people
understand the extent of his responsibilities as
he continues to cut his budget to deal with the
recent shortfalls in revenue.
Coats, along with Chief Deputy Bob Guali-
tieri, has been hosting forums all around Pinel-
las to meet with citizens and hear their
concerns. Two more meetings are scheduled
from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the following loca-
tions.
Tuesday, May 18, Bayside High School,
14405 49th St. N., Clearwater
Thursday, May 20, Pasadena Community
Church, 227 70th St. S., St. Petersburg

Coats said most everyone was familiar with
the role of his deputies and the patrol cars. How-
ever, he said, people are not aware of his depart-
ment's other duties, such as to the jail, court
security, processing of warrants, child protec-
tion, monitoring of sexual predators, transport-
ing prisoners and others.
He said the forums were a way to educate the
public and allow them to ask questions and
make suggestions as he continues to look at
ways to make the best use of his dwindling re-
sources. He said it also gave his staff a way to
dispel some of the rumors going around about
the budget.
He said thus far the forums had gone well and
that some people had offered some good sugges-
tions.
For the past few years, the Sheriffs Office, as
all other county departments, has been making

drastic cuts to the budget. Coats said it was very
difficult to continue making cuts without even-
tually affecting his office's ability to do its job.
For example, last year his office eliminated its
DUI team and DUI arrests are down 65 percent.
He recently submitted his budget for the
2010-11 fiscal year to County Commission
Chair Karen Seel. Coats said he exceeded the
amount necessary to compensate for the de-
crease in revenue by reducing his budget by just
over $20 million.
Coats said his proposed reductions do not in-
clude the full amount the commission wanted
for the stabilization fund.
Coats said despite recent reports that he is
calling for an increase in the millage, he would
not support any tax increase until every oppor-
tunity for increasing efficiencies had been ex-
hausted.
He said he was concerned about the future
for law enforcement.
"Arrests are down 62 percent because we no
longer have the resources," he said.
He said he also reduced his marine unit oper-
ations last month.


"Now, we won't have enough resources on the
water to take care of the safety violations and the
fishing violations," he said.
He said it was growing more difficult to con-
tinue to make cuts in his workforce.
"For the past three years, going into 2011,
we've cut 561 positions and reduced the budget
by $88 million," he said.
However, he's still shy $10 million of what
County Administrator Bob LaSala set as his tar-
get amount.
The sheriffs 2009-10 budget totals more than
$120 million. His proposed budget for 2010-11
is just over $98.5 million, still one of the biggest
pieces of the general fund budget.
Coats said the continued economic downturn
was having some impact on morale.
He said he currently has only three majors to
oversee 500 people.
Coats said he would continue to look for sav-
ings opportunities in every aspect of his opera-
tions and services.
"But we eventually will reach a point when we
really start compromising public safety," he said.
'We just haven't determined what that point is."

The Gulf Oil Spill Response.

How to find out more. Where to find help. How to volunteer.


Since the tragic accident on Transocean's Deepwater Horizon
rig first occurred, BP has done and continues to do everything
possible to respond to the situation. BP has taken full
responsibility for dealing with the spill, and is mobilizing
its full resources to fight against it in the Gulf of Mexico.


More than 2,500 of BP's operational and technical personnel
from around the world are working with many federal, state and
local government agencies, local communities and industry
experts. Using hundreds of vessels, they are involved in efforts
to protect the shore of the Gulf coast, to contain the spill offshore,
and to stem the flow of oil from the sub-sea well. Staging posts
to help protect the shoreline are in operation at six critical areas,
supported by command posts in Houma, Louisiana; Mobile,
Alabama; and St. Petersburg, Florida. Thousands of volunteers
are being trained to help with the cleanup.


We are grateful for the support of the many volunteers,
federal, state, and local government officials, and emergency
responders. We are determined to leave nothing undone in
the effort to stop the flow and minimize any potential impact.

Opening this week

Crowe and Scott re-imagine history's best known archer in 'Robin Hood'


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:

'Robin Hood'
Genre: Action/adventure
Cast: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max
von Sydow, William Hurt and Mark Addy
Director: Ridley Scott
Rated: PG-13
"Robin Hood" chronicles the life of an expert
archer, previously interested only in self-
preservation, from his service in King Richard's
army against the French.
Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Not-
tingham, a town suffering from the corruption
of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation,
where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Mar-
ion, a woman skeptical of the identity and mo-
tivations of this crusader from the forest.
Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and
salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang
whose lethal mercenary skills are matched
only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin
preying on the indulgent upper class to correct
injustices under the sheriff.
With their country weakened from decades
of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of
the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies
from within and threats from afar, Robin and
his men heed a call to ever greater adventure.

'Just Wright'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Pat-
ton, Michael Landes and Pam Grier
Director: Sanaa Hamri
Rated: PG
"Just Wright" stars Queen Latifah as Leslie
Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist
who gets the dream job of working with NBA
All-Star Scott McKnight (Common).
All is going well until Leslie finds herself
falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between
the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside
her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures,
McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of
Leslie's gorgeous childhood friend Morgan
(Paula Patton), who has her sights set on being
an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play
the role of "best friend" forever or will Scott fi-
nally see that what he always wanted is right
in front of him? Set against the exciting world
of championship basketball, the game of love
takes on the battle of the sexes in the romantic
sports comedy "Just Wright," starring three of
Hollywood's most charismatic personalities as
they navigate the full-court-press of love.

OPENING, from page 11

'Letters to Juliet'
Genre: Romantic comedy
Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave,
Gael Garcia Bernal, Franco Nero and Chris
Egan
Director: Gary Winick
Rated: PG
When a young American (Amanda Seyfried)
travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-
crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and
Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers
who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice
about love.
After answering one letter dated 1957, she
inspires its author (Vanessa Redgrave) to trav-
el to Italy in search of her long-lost love, and
sets off a chain of events that will bring a love
into both their lives unlike anything they ever
imagined.
The following will open in limited release.

'Daddy Longlegs'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Ronald Bronstein, Eleonore Hen-
dricks, Salvatore Sansone, Abel Ferrara and
Sean Price Williams
Director: Ben Safdie and Josh Safdie
Not rated
After months of being alone, sad, busy,
sidetracked, free, lofty, late and away from his
kids, Lenny (Ronald Bronstein), 34 with gray-
ing frazzled hair, picks his kids up from
school.
Every year he spends a couple of weeks
with his sons Sage (Sage Ranaldo), 9, and Frey
(Frey Ranaldo), 7. Lenny juggles his kids and
everything else all within a midtown studio
apartment in New York City. He ultimately
faces the choice of being their father or their
friend with the idea that these two weeks must
last six months. In these two weeks, a trip up-
state, visitors from strange lands, a mother, a
girlfriend, "magic" blankets, and complete law-
lessness seem to take over their lives. The film
is a swan song to excuses and irresponsibili-


ties; to fatherhood and self-created experi-
ences, and to what it's like to be truly torn be-
tween being a child and being an adult.

'Princess Kaiulani'
Genre: Drama
Cast: g'Orianka Kilcher, Shaun Evans,
Barry Pepper, Will Patton and Tamzin Mer-
chant
Director: Marc Forby
Rated: PG
Set against the dramatic island backdrop of
Hawaii and based on the inspiring true story,
"Princess Kaiulani" is a breathtaking romance
about an unlikely heroine and her unwavering
fight to defend the independence of her people.
In 1888, Hawaii was a paradise teetering on
the brink of civil unrest. The tide had turned
against the long-incumbent royal family,
under the malevolent influence of a rebel
party with links to the American government.
Within months, the palace was overthrown,
and the royals exiled.
Among them was the beautiful Princess
Kaiulani. Scarcely 13 years old, she was sepa-
rated from her family and her homeland and
for her own safety, sent to a climate and a
country that couldn't be more different from
Hawaii- Victorian England.
Coming to terms with her fate, Kaiulani un-
derwent a harsh and testing education that
equipped her with a sense of honor, duty and
pride. What's more, she fell in love, with the
spirited and rebellious young Englishman,
Clive Davies.
Emerging from her childhood, and inspired
by her blossoming romance, Kaiulani realized
she had to bring an end to the injustices suf-
fered by her people and set to sail for Ameri-
ca, to meet President Grover Cleveland, to
prove that she and her people were not the
"barbarians" portrayed by the American
press.

it, through May 31, in the

nation with poetry, mytholo-
gy and social issues. He

generation of artists for

tegral tool in the art-making
process. His work generally

of Art" broadcast on a cine-

This new play by Alan Ben-
nett, which opened in the
Lyttelton Theatre in Novem-
ber 2009, is directed by
Nicholas Hytner. Benjamin
Britten, sailing uncomfort-
ably close to the wind with
his new opera, "Death in


Venice," seeks advice from
his former collaborator and
friend, W.H. Auden. During
this imagined meeting, their
first for 25 years, they are ob-
served and interrupted by,
amongst others, their future
biographer and a young man
from the local bus station.
Bennett's new play is as
much about the theatre as it

Krajnik wins math, science scholarship
INDIAN ROCKS BEACH Connor Krajnik, 12, a middle
school student from Indian Rocks Beach, won a $1,000
math and science scholarship from Raytheon Company to be
used for a math, science or technology camp or program or
to be saved for college. Krajnik's school, Clearwater Funda-
mental Middle, also received a matching grant from the com-
pany.
This was Raytheon's kickoff to Math Awareness Month. In
total, the company will award $300,000 to 150 students and
schools across the country as part of its MathMovesU pro-
gram. This is an initiative designed to engage middle school
students in math and science.
The scholarship recipients were chosen from a pool of
2,727 middle school students who created multimedia pre-
sentations that illustrated the importance of math in their
daily lives and answered the question, "How does math put
the action in your passion?" Submissions were judged inde-
pendently by Scholarship America.

Students win art awards
CLEARWATER Three students from Clearwater Cen-
tral Catholic High School recently won the GFWC Clear-
water Woman's Club's "Spotlight on Student Art" contest.
Nick Johnson won first place, Claire Lee won second
place and Kaylee Magazine won third place. Each won gift
certificates and gift cards to Michael's.
Johnson said he was inspired for his winning piece from
the Chinese research he did on painting and architecture.
He said bamboo is a common element in Asian art, and he
liked the lengthy shape of the plant. He used vibrant col-
ors like deep red and gold to mimic the imperial dynasties
of early China, and the turquoise background was for a
high contrast enhancer. He hopes to continue art and
painting as a hobby and become a graphic designer or an
architect.

Old Florida garden open for tour


The Florida summer sun
sends dappled rays through
the leaves of hundred-year-
old oak trees at Holloway
Haven at 11500 74th Ave. in
Seminole.
Gypsy Wind adds their
melodies to the sound of
breeze-rustled leaves. Visi-
tors stroll through the nearly
two-acres that comprise the
"Old Florida" acreage across
from Seminole City Park.
This scene will play out on
Sunday, May 16, from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m.
Members of the Rare Plant
Network will set up a plant
market under the oaks;
artists will display and sell
their crafts and members of
the Seminole Historical Soci-
ety will have pictures of the
former Meares Lake and the


grove that once existed in the
neighborhood. Michele Shaf-
fer will demonstrate how to
attract butterflies and their
life cycle.
Family and friends will be
available to answer ques-
tions about the 50-year-old
homes that an early Chicago
developer built. The owners
often have guests stay in two
of the four buildings on their
property.
Feathered friends, cock-
atiels, conures, peacocks,
chickens and other birds ei-
ther live on the property or
fly in to visit. Koi live in a
large pond filtered with a
homemade water wheel;
while a small pond by the
patio provides a restful tin-
kling drip of water.
Surprises greet strollers in


many areas of the garden; a
whimsical "hut" conjures up
a Caribbean island that was
built from recycled fence
pickets.
Varied plants can be found
on the garden tour. Although
90 percent shady, there are
areas where citrus, avocados,
a peach tree and grapes pro-
duce their bounty.
Some of the oak trees sup-
port staghorn ferns and two
varieties of the night bloom-
ing cereus. People who grow
this plant have watched the
flower buds form and stayed


up at night to see the blooms
and enjoy the intense fra-
grance. This unattractive
stick of a plant can be kept
in a pot in the house during
cold nights or planted where
it can climb at will.
Two Australian tree ferns
lend a special tropical
woodsy feel. These are hardy
up to Gainesville and thrive
in the shade of the old oak
trees. Bromeliads and shade
are simpatico and bloom a
few times a year, especially
with their built-in drinking
cups.
Forget life's fast pace and
come stroll through a piece of
serene old Florida at Hol-
loway Haven. A donation of
$1 is requested.
Ruth Davies can be reached
at sunflowerl368@juno.com.

Must be the season of the itch


Our pets suffered a double
whammy in the last few
months. The extra cold spell
this winter has led to even
more blooms on the already
prolific Florida foliage. More
blooms means more pollen,
and more pollen means more
scratching for our pets suffer-
ing from atopy, or an allergy
to substances in the environ-
ment. Unfortunately, the cold
seemed only to slightly delay
Florida's massive flea popula-
tion, which is now in full force
as well.
Dogs suffering atopy often
bite and chew at their feet,
which is the part of their body
in contact with the pollen
laden ground when they go
outside. Many dogs suffering
from flea bites bite and
scratch around their back
end and tail. The classic hot
spots, which are areas of
moist skin infection, are often
flea-related. Cats suffering
from fleas often have military
dermatitis, which are multiple
pin-prick scabs around the
neck and the base of the tail.
Not all of our pets will follow
this stereotypical pattern, as
each allergic pet has the po-
tential to be a little different,
but looking for these patterns
give us a good starting point.
Diagnosing the flea allergic
pet can be especially frustrat-
ing, because the most aller-
gic, and consequently most
itchy, pets may never have an
actual flea found on them.


Ahoy, doggie


These dogs and cats have a
huge reaction from a single
flea bite, and are very aware
of how severe their reaction
will be. If these pets feel any-
thing like a flea on them, they
will become frantic trying to
get it off, and can often be
fairly successful. These pets
many be itching constantly
and even damaging them-
selves, but you will never find
a live flea on them. This is
similar to people with aller-
gies; if someone was severely
allergic to ant bites, even
thinking they feel an ant
crawling on them would make
them desperate to get the in-
sect off.
Treating fleas requires a


multi-pronged approach.
There are now many different
topical and oral flea medica-
tions for pets that kill fleas in-
cluding Advantage, Frontline,
Capstar, Comfortis, Vectra,
Promeris, Revolution and oth-
ers. These medications all
work in different ways, and
may vary in effectiveness de-
pending on your individual
pet and his or her environ-
ment, Additionally, there are
medications that prevent flea
reproduction, such as Pro-
gram or Sentinel, or the
sprays with active ingredients
such as Nylar and Metho-
preme. Using both a medica-
tion that kills fleas as well as
something that halts repro-


duction is known as Integrat-
ed Pest Management, or IPM.
There has been much dis-
cussion recently about
whether fleas are becoming
resistant to individual med-
ications; whether this is hap-
pening or not, we should
assume that all flea medi-
cines will have a failure rate,
even if it is very low. A med-
ication that kills 99.9 percent
of fleas sounds great until a
squirrel, opossum or stray cat
drops 2,000 flea eggs in your
yard; then killing only 99.9
percent allows for surviving
fleas, and the life cycle of
these pests to continue. IPM
sterilizes any surviving fleas,
stopping the problem before
the infestation reaches your
house or yard.
While IPM may stop an in-
festation, for the super-flea-
allergic pet, even a single flea
bite may be too much. Some
medicines don't mix, so get
professional advice before at-
tempting this.
Living in the sub-tropical
weather of Florida has its ad-
vantages, but we also have to
deal with a large number of
parasites and pests, including
fleas. If your pet has not had
to deal with these little mon-
sters yet, count yourself lucky
and be vigilant. For most
Florida pet owners, it is not a
matter of if, but rather when.

spot and chumming with cut
bait will bring the reds in.
When the water clarity is a bit
off and there's a chop on the
water, the reds rely on their
acute sense of smell to find
the food, making cut bait un-
beatable in this situation. Any
cut bait will do. Pilchards,
threadfins, pinfish, mullet
and ladyfish all work, and if
you are catching nothing but
small fish, try using bigger


bait, this will often produce a
bigger fish.
Our lackluster kingfish
season picked up this past
week with schools of smaller
fish showing up at a few of
the artificial reefs. Slow
trolling live baits will keep you
busy with these schoolie
kings. As the water tempera-

expect the kingfish run to di-
minish in the upcoming


weeks.

Rodeghero had a practice in a small town in Ohio for more
than 20 years, where he and his wife, Ginger, raised their four
children on a small farm. After selling that practice in late
2002 he took a short sabbatical for about a year enjoying the

Obituaries
Pauline Tropp OBRENTZ
E 101, passed away peacefully in her sleep on
May 4, 2010, after a brief illness. She was a
legend in the interior design industry; a member
of A.S.I.D who practiced her trade for more than
70 years. Listed in Who's Who of American
Women, Pauline attended Yale School of Art.
She began her interior design career in White
Plains, N.Y. and taught at N.Y. Institute of Technology and
Design before establishing an impressive list of residential
clients as well as international commercial credits. She
moved to Clearwater, Fla. in 1968 and owned a successful
interior design practice for 25 years. With no intention of
retiring, she moved to Atlanta, Ga. in the late 1990s to
reside with her son, Bruce, his wife, Barbara, and their
children, Shari and Adam. Pauline's husband, Abe, passed in
1979, as did her son, Hugh, in 1984. She is survived by six
additional grandchildren: Candi, Dana, Hugh, Lisa and
Lauren Obrentz, Terry Gopsil, and great-grandchild, Leah
Obrentz. With her trademark smile and famous red chapeau,
she will be remembered as a respected designer, loving
mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be
greatly missed by those whose lives and homes she graced.

Horoscopes
May 13, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
You've gone as far as you
can on a project, Capricorn.
Let someone else who can
pull strings take over. An ac-
quaintance makes a bid for a
cherished item.
Aquarius
January 20 February 18
You like to make others
happy, but that isn't reason
enough to do something you
don't want to, Aquarius.
Stand your ground and follow
your conscience.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
Look out, Pisces. Someone
is trying to shake your confi-
dence. Know your limitations,
believe in your abilities and
forge ahead. The truth comes
out at home.
Aries
March 21 April 19
The need for change is evi-
dent, Aries, but you do not
have to go all out. Start off
small and move to bigger, bet-
ter things when you are
ready.
Taurus
April 20 May 20
Adventure beckons, Tau-
rus. Be daring and go. You
will have fun. A risky finan-
cial move pays off big time.
Don't let it go to your head;
learn from it instead.
Gemini
May 21- June 21
Stop putting off the in-
evitable, Gemini. You must
confront a friend about their
behavior now, or risk losing
them forever. Be brief but
firm. An amazing opportunity
arises.
Cancer
June 22 July 22
Don't underestimate your-
self, Cancer. You have what it
takes. Push forward and use
every resource available to
turn your dreams into reality.
Leo
July 23 August 22
Separating fact from fiction
won't be easy this week, Leo.
Listen carefully and read be-
tween the lines. A coworker
becomes a force to contend
with.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
A young relative gets into
some trouble. Be there for
them, Virgo, but don't bail
them out. They need to learn
from their mistakes. The
workload gets lighter.
Libra
September 23 October 22
Cheer up, Libra. A little
windfall will start you on the
path to financial freedom. A
relationship is dealt a bad
blow. Hurry to correct the sit-
uation.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You can make a difference,
Scorpio, as long as you want
to. Support that cause near
and dear to your heart in
every way possible. You won't
believe the results!
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You've been quiet long
enough. Speak up, Sagittar-
ius, and let your opinion be
known. A new process at
work proves to be more effi-
cient than first thought.
