School district grapples
with budget woes
The district must cut $26 mil-
lion from its budget due to de-
creases in funding, and presently
there is still a long ways to go be-
fore that amount is met.
Superintendent Janssen also
provided a list of possible ways to
try to meet the required $26 mil-
lion in cuts. Some of the least
painful ways suggested are to elim-
inate arterial busing for non-mag-
net schools. It is estimated that
eliminating 50 routes would save
$2.2 million and eliminating 75
routes would save $3.3 million.

Playground may get facelift


City considers replacing equipment at Central Park
By TOM GERMOND great years out of the equipment.


LARGO To help them understand what they
need in terms of new playground equipment in
Largo Central Park, city officials sought opinions
from constituents who have a lot of experience on
the issue: kids.
More than 1,000 Largo elementary school stu-
dents participated in the process to help suggest
pieces of playground equipment.
And it appears they will get a chance to play on
some of that type of equipment. Most city com-
missioners at a work session May 25 favored re-
placing the playground at the park at an
estimated cost of $647,000 rather than refurbish-
ing the playground at a cost of about $395,000.
Because money has been budgeted this year for
the project, "I would say do it," Commissioner


"This is the one park that we have
that every one in the city can use."
- City Commissioner Mary Black

Mary Black said. Sales tax revenue would fund
the work.
'This is the one park that we have that every
one in the city can use," Black said. "It is not situ-
ated where it's a neighborhood park. Everyone
can come and drive to it and enjoy it," she said.
She said it was better to replace the playground
"as opposed to trying to refurbish and then in two
or three years having to refurbish more."
Commissioner Gigi Arntzen said city has got 15


'That park is heavily used," she said. 'The com-
munity relies on that."
Mayor Pat Gerard also was in favor of replacing
the playground. She questioned why staff had
given commissioners the option of refurbishing
the playground when the replacement project was
included in the budget.
Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert said
city officials thought it was important to look at
options to see if there was a "cost-effective way of
spending less money."
"Our initial thought was maybe we could refur-
bish now and get several more years out of it," he
said.
Looking at the project in detail, "refurbishment

'wait and see' on spill


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER- Pinellas County
officials continue to monitor the
progress of an oil slick located hun-
dreds of miles offshore in the Gulf of
Mexico.
Commissioner Neil Brickfield
asked for a briefing on the situation
during the May 18 regularly sched-
uled meeting.
County Administrator Bob LaSala
said emergency management and
the environmental staff were meet-
ing with members of the St. Peters-
burg Coast Guard to review
contingency plans and make prepa-
rations.
As to Brickfield's concerns about
the beaches, LaSala said, "Candidly,
areas such as mangroves, grass


beds and other coastal breeding
grounds and wetlands will be given
higher priority."
He said experts maintain that it is
easier to clean beaches and it is
more important to concentrate on
keeping chemicals out of the bay. At
the outset, priority would go to the
most environmentally sensitive
areas first, which is consistent with
all the action plans from Texas to
Florida, LaSala said.
'This is a very stressful game of
wait and see what happens," Com-
missioner Susan Latvala said.
"Is there anything we can do?"
Brickfield asked.
LaSala said beyond the actions in
the contingency plan, such as

School board gets a peek at potential budget cuts


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL


Suggestions and ideas to meet mandatory budget cuts were
presented by Pinellas County School District's finance team and
Superintendent Dr. Julie Janssen at a May 20 school board
workshop.
The district must cut $26 million from its budget due to de-
creases in funding, and presently there is still a long ways to go
before that amount is met.
Potentially budget cuts could be even greater due to Class Size
Amendment requirements, but the district has tried to be cre-
ative to avoid additional costs.
'We also have a $14.4 million expense for class size, moving to
the classroom by classroom requirements next year, so that
translates into (needing) about 240-250 (additional) teachers,"
said Andrea Zahn, director of communications for the district.
'What Dr. Janssen was outlining is that we're taking our own
staff and we think we can reach it instead of hiring all those new
teachers. We're going to take certified people in the district. Let's
say I'm a coach or something but I don't actually have kids in
front of me. We've surveyed and looked at everyone who is avail-
able as a certified teacher so qualified, certified teachers, to be
assigned students, and that's how we're going to meet class
size."
Janssen also provided a list of possible ways to try to meet the
required $26 million in cuts. Some of the least painful ways sug-
gested are to eliminate arterial busing for non-magnet schools. It
is estimated that eliminating 50 routes would save $2.2 million
and eliminating 75 routes would save $3.3 million.
Eliminating transportation for Thurgood Marshall Fundamen-
tal Middle and Osceola Fundamental High would save an addi-
tional $800,000.
The board requested that staff make sure busing figures are
solid, but it was generally agreed among both the board and staff
that there is room to make transportation more efficient and
cost-effective.
Some of the board members were concerned that eliminating
busing for the suggested schools could leave some students
without a way to get to school. Board Member Carol Cook said
that there are creative ways that are already being used in the
district for transportation.

'We have two schools that are currently using what was for-
merly called Bay Area Commuter Services free of charge," Cook
said "... And, they may even be able to help you identify students
and tell you what's going on and set up carpooling and it costs us
nothing. Coachman Fundamental has found it very effective. It's
government funded and is free."
Staff has also suggested restricting school air conditioning use
to a half an hour before school starts until a half an hour after
the final bell, which would save $2.4 million.
Some board members asked if this would affect the working
conditions of nighttime workers or increase the risk of mold. Staff
responded that currently air conditioning is run for only four
hours on the weekends and that is sufficient to prevent mold,
and it would still be run for longer than that during the week.
As far as evening staff, they would be affected somewhat, the
board was told, but the buildings take a while to lose all the cool
temperatures and they can still be kept at a reasonable tempera-
ture. Janssen added that there is currently an inefficient use of
energy because air conditioning is run until the final staff mem-
ber leaves for the night.
Other suggestions include eliminating school improvement
money and reducing district and school discretionary dollars,
each would save $1.2 million.
The district could also realign its extended learning program,
saving about $800,000 and there is a one-time cost-reduction of
$600,000 using money saved on the Clearwire agreement.
Cuts that are more painful include moving administrators and
some other staff from 12-month to 11.5-month contracts and 11-
month to 10.5-month contracts, as well as dropping "singleton
courses" and realigning instructional salaried staff not assigned
to school. All these possibilities are still being looked into as far
as how much money could be saved.
Options also are being considered to reduce additional duty
days, saving at least $500,000 and reducing high school magnet
coaches, saving $800,000.
Savings to be determined are reducing relocatables, eliminat-
ing certain elective courses with low student enrollment, reduc-

ing transportation for athletic events, cutting back on selected
athletic programs, reclassifying job titles such as assistant super-
intendent to director of student assignment, and replacing night
foremen with plant operators.
Board member Mary Tyus Brown asked how the district would
replace some of these programs for the children who need them.
Janssen said that all programs are being scrutinized to en-
sure that they are both effective and efficient, so there will be
cuts where things can be run more efficiently, and in some cases
programs will be revamped to produce better results more effi-
ciently.
As a last resort, there is the possibility of mandatory furloughs,
or unpaid leave. If administrators were required five days of leave
and instructional staff four days, that would save $10.1 million;
$7.7 million could be saved if administrators were required four
days and instructional staff three days; or $5.2 million would be
saved if administrators took three days and instructional staff
had two days of furloughs.

Memorial Day marks start of summer activities


By SUZETTE PORTER


More than 1 million Floridians are expected to hit the
road for the first official summer holiday a decrease of 4.8
percent from 2009, according to AAA Auto Club South.
However, AAA estimates a 5.4 percent increase nation-
wide.
'The last two years have left consumers with a pent-up
demand for travel, so we aren't surprised to see overall trav-
el numbers increase this coming Memorial Day weekend,"
said Jessica Brady, manager of AAA Public Relations. "Al-
though travel in the southeast is expected to decline, there
will still be millions of motorists on the roadways and pas-
sengers at the airports, so safety and patience are of the
essence."
Memorial Day weekend is an auto-heavy holiday with
more than 87 percent planning to travel by automobile, AAA
said.

Click it or Ticket
In anticipation of the increase in traffic, the state's annual
Click it or Ticket campaign began May 24 and continues
through June 6. During this time, law enforcement will be on
the lookout for motorists who are not wearing seatbelts.

PLAYGROUND, from page 1

probably doesn't make a lot of sense if you are looking at the
long-term costs and the fact it is already budgeted it proba-
bly makes more sense to go with the complete replacement,"
Schubert said.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he was in "sticker
shock" over estimates. He questioned a line in a city memo
saying that "final numbers could vary slightly" on the pro-
ject.
City Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne said
city officials talked to various playground vendors "but we
weren't asking them for hard bids because we haven't select-
ed the equipment."
"We did want to estimate a little bit higher because we
didn't want you to get a number in your head and then have
the estimate come back and have sticker shock," she said.
City officials plan to seek proposals from contractors and
have the work done in August and September, when usage is
less because school is in session. The playground will be
closed while work is under way.
City officials say the park has safety issues because of its
age and condition. An independent audit of the playground
was performed in April 2010 to help city officials determine
the extent needed to renovate the playground. The report
said that three major structures and a train structure
should no longer be used. Other recommendations included
making changes to ground surfacing relating to fall zones
and improvements to bring the playground up to the Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act Standards.
City officials said that replacing the playground pieces,
based on the most popular suggestions from students, ac-
cessibility and other factors, would cost $390,000.
In addition, other costs include sidewalks reconstruction,
$8,000; additional lighting, $12,000; demolition and tree
protection, $20,000; gate replacement, $5,000; and the in-
stallation of posts, $10,000.
The option commissioners favor also includes vinyl fencing
and artificial turf, bringing the cost to $647,000. City offi-
cials say that artificial turf has the highest initial cost but
the lowest maintenance costs and looks the most natural.


Motorists and passengers caught not wearing seatbelts will
be pulled over and ticketed per Florida's primary seatbelt law,
which is in force for the first time this year.
"Seat belts save lives," Florida Department of Transportation
Secretary Stephanie Kopelousos said. "During this Memorial
Day Click it or Ticket campaign, all Floridians are encouraged
to make safe decisions and buckle up each and every time they
are on the road."
Law enforcement will be one road day and night looking for
unbuckled motorists, according to FDOT officials.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports from

Pool safety
Each year, an average of 74 children drown in Florida, and
the Pinellas County Health Department is gearing up for Memo-
rial Day and the start of beach and pool season.
Florida Safe Pools 2010 campaign began on May 25.
"Keeping children safe around pools is our goal, and Flori-
daSafePools.com is Tampa Bay's best resource for helping par-
ents reach that goal," Wendy Loomas, campaign co-chair, says
in a statement posted on the Web site.
According to its mission statement, Florida Safe Pools is a
water safety campaign established by Florida Suncoast Safe
Kids Coalition led by All Children's Hospital.
Florida leads the nation in drowning deaths for children
under 5 years old.
'We have learned that most young children gain access to the
pool when least expected so, Florida Safe Pools promotes the
use of multiple 'layers of protection' (barriers and alarms) to
help parents and guardians."

deploying floating booms to areas of calmer water to protect en-
vironmentally sensitive areas, there was nothing else to do
other than remove manmade structures that could trap toxins.
He said booms would not work along the beaches due to the
open water and wave action.
He said only trained personnel would work on the cleanup
due to the toxic nature of the tar balls or other materials that
might affect the area from the oil spill.
The county is working with the Coast Guard and the state to
coordinate volunteer efforts, LaSala said.
The plan is to have volunteers ready to go if needed to "effi-
ciently and effectively clean up and restore as fast as possible,"
LaSala said.

Request for volunteers
On May 21, the county sent out a request for volunteers. The
oil slick was 305 miles from the Clearwater coastline, and officials
said there was no imminent threat.
Officials believe that the main threat to local beaches would be
from oil that has weathered into tar balls or tar mats, which are


not as toxic as fresh oil, but still could affect birds and other
wildlife that are exposed to the materials, county officials said.
Trained contractors, not volunteers, would remove any tar
balls or tar mats that might be found.
Local environmental organizations are seeking volunteers for
coastal watches, preventative beach cleanup and bird monitor-
ing.
Local wildlife rehabilitation agencies are requesting trained as-
sistance and donations.

Volunteer opportunities
Coastline watchers: To report oil on the shoreline, call 866-
448-5816, or dial #DEP from a cell phone. To report oiled wildlife,
call 866-557-1401.
Pre-oil landfall beach cleanup: Sign up online with Keep
Pinellas Beautiful at www.pinvol.org for a special beach cleanup.
Volunteers who register would be contacted for a beach cleanup
event, if necessary, prior to oil making landfall. For information,
call 533-0402.
Local bird survey: Assist Audubon with counting local bird
populations by using the eBird checklist at www.ebird.org or call
the Clearwater Audubon Society at 431-2856.


Beach and wildlife monitoring: Volunteers can contact Tampa
Bay Watch at www.tampabaywatch.org or call 727-867-8166.
Office work or seabird rehabilitation: Volunteers are needed
at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary for tasks such as feeding
birds, which will free up trained staff for emergency work. In ad-
dition, veterinarians and wildlife paraprofessionals are needed for
an Emergency Call List. Visit www.seabirdsanctuary.com, or call
727-391-2473.
Aquarium work: Volunteers are needed to assist the Clearwa-
ter Marine Aquarium with daily duties. Training classes and long-
term weekly shifts are required. Volunteers will not necessarily
treat oiled wildlife directly, as marine animal needs will be deter-
mined by federal wildlife officials and facility staff. Visit
www.seewinter.com or call 441-1790, ext. 230.

Donations
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is requesting donations of items
such as towels to treat oiled birds. Visit www.seabirdsanctu-
ary.com, or call 391-2473 for a current list of needed supplies.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium has set up an Oil Spill Emer-
gency Fund. Donations can be made by calling the aquarium at
441-1790 or visiting www.seewinter.com.


BATTLE, from page 1
wasn't nervous until the soldier told him to chamber a round in
his M-1 rifle.
Rothschild, a private, was assigned to a 10-man anti-tank
gun crew which rode in a 3/4-ton truck that towed a 57mm
gun. The crew set up camp in an abandoned farmhouse that
overlooked a river with the Germans on the other side.
'That night I saw what looked like 4th of July fireworks,"
Rothschild recalled. He later learned that it was a diversion to
hide the fact that German troops were crossing the river in
boats.
An officer reported that a German tank was coming and said
the crew should prepare to destroy it. But, just before they
were ready to fire, a German white phosphorous shell landed


just in front of their gun.
'The corporal panicked and told everybody to leave the gun
and pile in the truck," Rothschild said. But the truck left before
Rothschild and another man could climb in. They ran after it
and the other man was able to climb in, but Rothschild was left
behind.
After his frightening trek through the woods, Rothschild
reached headquarters and found complete chaos.
'There was no more organization," he said. "Units were all
jumbled up." Officers were waving their pistols, threatening to
shoot any soldier who headed toward the rear instead of toward
the front.
Rothschild reported that, in his search for headquarters, he
had seen several American artillery pieces that had been aban-
doned by their crews. A captain asked if he could find them


again, and Rothschild replied that he could. He was then put
atop the lead tank of a convoy sent to retrieve the guns.
Because of phosphorous burns sustained from the German
shell, and exposure suffered during his freezing trek to head-
quarters, Rothschild was hospitalized for the remainder of the
Battle of the Bulge. By the end of January 1945, American
forces had retaken all the ground they had lost, and the defeat
of Germany was imminent.
Because Rothschild speaks German, he was kept on as an
interpreter for the occupation army after the war ended. He
was promoted to corporal before he was discharged on Nov. 15,
1945.
In civilian life, he was in the retail grocery business. He has
outlived three wives, although he never had children. Today, at
87, he lives in the Villa de Chenes apartments in Largo.

Editorial


A compelling argument


Largo city commissioners may ask voters to
extend their office terms from three to four
years.
The proposal makes sense because it will
result in substantial savings in election costs
and should increase voter turnout.
According to city officials, Largo's cost for
conducting the 2009 election was $69,263.
The cost estimate for the 2010 election to be
held with a countywide election is $5,836 to
$27,741, which will result in 60 to 90 percent
savings.
A total 6,306 city voters, or 14 percent, cast
ballots in the November 2009 election, com-
pared to 33,759 voters or 68.8 percent in the
2008 election.
Given those numbers, commissioners can
make a compelling argument for taking the
issue to voters, as required since it would be
a city charter amendment.
Elected municipal cities in the largest cities
in Pinellas County have four-year terms, in-
cluding Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Pinel-
las Park. The city of Dunedin is considering
amending its charter to establish four-year
terms and move its election to November.
The best way to give people more say in
their government is to increase turnout at the
polls.
Commissioners should put the issue on the


ballot, and residents should vote for it.

Since May 5, 1866, Americans have ob-
served Memorial Day.
Gen. John Logan, commander-in-chief of
the Grand Army of the Republic, a veteran's
organization, has been credited for bringing
national attention to the holiday.
Now observed on the last Monday in May
annually, Memorial Day commemorates the
men and women who died while serving in
the U.S. military.
As the holiday approaches, Americans will
be making plans to visit loved ones, enjoy pic-
nics, sporting events or spending the day at
the beach.
We hope that in their travels and holiday
routines, Americans will in some way remem-
ber the sacrifices that so many of their fellow
countrymen have made while fighting for their
country whether it's attending a Memorial
Day ceremony, hoisting a flag or saying a
prayer for our troops risking their lives for
their country.
John F. Kennedy put it well:
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes
us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear
any burden, meet any hardship, support any
friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival
and the success of liberty."


"Are there any sharks over
there?" yelled the boy, who
looked about 10 years old, to
a couple of men fishing in
chest-deep water just 20 feet
away.
The boy was having the
time of his life with his
younger brother last Satur-
day on Indian Rocks Beach,
as they splashed around in
the water, skim boarded, and
played Frisbee with their
grandfather.
As it turned out, the only
things biting were some
whiting. Still the boys had
imaginative visions of big
sharks lurking nearby.
As I took a swim in the
Gulf of Mexico, which was
clear, warm and refreshing, I
thought how nice it was that
the boys weren't at all con-
cerned about tar balls or oil
slicks. I tried really hard to
put those thoughts out of my
mind not an easy task
these days.
Just that morning came
news that oil had reached
beaches, marshes and peli-
can rookeries in Louisiana.
The public beach at Grand
Isle, south of New Orleans,
was closed. My heart aches
and stomach churns every
time one of these horrible
updates comes in. It's sick-
ening what man has done.
During a TV interview last
week while commenting on
government regulation and
the EPA, Rand Paul, a candi-
date for the U.S. Senate in
Kentucky, actually said that
"sometimes accidents just
happen." I would like to have
dunked his curly hair in a
vat of oil. What does he care
about the people and wildlife
of the Gulf of Mexico? It's not
in his backyard. This is not

the Matter

This is some whopper of
an accident, all right. It's one
that never should have been
allowed to happen in the first
place. I have no problem
playing the blame game
more than a month after a
deadly oil rig accident took
11 lives and continues to
ravage the Gulf of Mexico
day after day. British Petrole-
um has accomplished little
in all this time. I have lost
complete faith that they have
any idea what they are
doing.
It is truly disheartening to
hear that some 61 percent of
respondents to a recent Wall
Street Journal/NBC News
poll still support oil drilling. I
am quite certain most of
these people haven't spent
much time on the pristine
beaches of the Gulf, and they
sure as heck can't possibly
live here. If so, they are prob-
ably the same sort of people
who leave their cigarette
butts behind, littering the
beaches before they load up
and head home. On Satur-
day I saw a guy take one last
puff, then toss his cigarette
butt into the water just be-
fore he dove in for a swim.
Disgusting. I muttered some-
thing unmentionable under
my breath.
Indian Rocks Beach quick-
ly filled up with colorful um-
brellas and lots of people
Saturday morning. It seemed


like everyone was enjoying
the water many of the
adults no doubt mindful of
what lurks way off in the dis-
tance in that gorgeous body
of water. As waves gently
rolled ashore, it occurred to
me how truly unimaginable
it is that someday our beau-
tiful beaches could be invad-
ed by thick crude while
birds, turtles and fish suffo-
cate in the filth. How exactly
does BP plan to compensate
for their suffering? If not our
beach this time, perhaps the
next. Who can say with cer-
tainty? The economic impact
of this spill will be crushing
to so many.
We live in Florida because
we love the lifestyle, Mother
Nature's beauty, the wildlife,
and the feel of sand between
our toes. Mother Nature is
going to pay a huge price be-
fore ultimately handling the
job of restoring as much as
possible of what mankind
has taken away in the name
of greed. It could take years
or even decades to recover.
As I headed home, I chat-
ted with a couple who was
visiting from England, as
they do twice a year. They
commented how surprised
they are that there were no
real contingency plans for
such a catastrophic event,
and how ill-prepared every-
one seemed to be, including
the federal government. They
noted that in the UK they
have a better grip on these
things, with a history of
drilling in the North Sea.
'The beaches are so beau-
tiful here," the woman said,
as we parted ways.
I agreed and encouraged
them to keep coming back.
Time will tell.

A potpourri of pious piffle
Editor:
Clearly, Barack O'Bama has become the
American idol of the "what's in it for me
crowd," his loyal apostles in television and
those leftist idiotlogues in Follywood.
Frankly, O'Bama reminds me of Narcissus -
the mythological youngster who spent his days
admiring his reflection in a pond and subse-
quently fell in love with himself.
Surely, if the articulate and testy British
statesman, Benjamin Disraeli, was living
today, I'm sure he would characterize the pres-


ident as a "sophisticated rhetorician inebriated
with the exuberance of his own verbosity."
Without question, his message is always the
same old self-serving potpourri of pious piffle.
Also, rumor has it that Diogenes, the Greek
philosopher and cynic who roamed the streets
of Athens with his lantern held high while
searching for an honest man, was last seen
leaving the White House with his lantern still
alight. Find him soon, Mr. D. Fuel is getting
awfully expensive.

The blind widow and her hellhound


One of the pleasures of get-
ting old is to look back on the
potential disasters you've es-
caped. These are the tight
squeaks that could easily
have put you in jail, the head-
lines, the hospital or the grave
- but somehow did not.
Such an event happened to
me several years ago. After
my wife's death I moved to
New England to be near my
daughter and grandchildren. I
rented an apartment in a
small town and settled in to
my new life. In an unaccus-
tomed burst of proactivism I
joined the local Chamber of
Commerce. That was a mis-
take. I'm not a good joiner or
hail fellow well-met. I was be-
hind the door when the glad
hands were passed out. But I
was lonely and wanted to
somehow fit in.
I attended two or three
Chamber mixers, drank a lot
of Diet Coke, ate potato chips,
and was generally ignored.
One cold night, at the close of
my third soiree, I was about
to depart when a Chamber of-
ficial took me aside. He said,
"Would you mind giving a lift
home to Mrs. Burns? She's a
widow and blind, you know."
No, I didn't know. And I
was not eager to play taxi for
a blind person I had never
met. But I didn't want to go
into my grave being known as
"that guy from Florida who
refused to give Mrs. Burns a
ride home." So I agreed.
I was introduced to Mrs.
Burns. She seemed like a
pleasant woman, perhaps 80
years old or thereabouts. On
our way to her home she told
me her husband, a banker,
had been active in the Cham-
ber. After his death she con-
tinued to attend Chamber
meetings. I concluded that I
was probably one of many
members who had been re-


Driver's Seat

cruited to give a ride to the
blind widow lady.
Snow had begun to fall as
we wended our way, with
Mrs. Burns giving me in-
structions on which streets to
take. She lived on the side of
one of the mountains that
bordered the town. Before
long the paved streets
turned into a dirt road that
climbed ever higher. There
were no street lamps. As we
progressed, I asked myself,
"What are you doing here? If
your car breaks down, or
this lady has a heart attack,
exactly what is your strate-
gy?"
At last we reached the en-
trance to her driveway. It
was covered in a light coat-
ing of snow, and was about
two football fields long. Mrs.
Burns' home was a replica of
an English country house.
As we reached the entryway,
floodlights came on. As I
helped Mrs. Burns from my
car, she spoke to someone.
"Hello, Herman."
I looked down. There, a
few inches away from my
knees and other sensitive or-
gans, stood a genuine, un-
varnished hellhound.
Herman had the dimensions
and charm of a rotted tree
stump. The front third of his
body was all jowls. His jaws,
nose, teeth and eyes had
been jammed together into a
pugface that only a blind
woman could love. Herman
made welcoming noises to his
mistress, and then turned his
attention to me.
Mrs. Burns said, "I live
alone, and Herman gives me


great comfort and security."
I'll just bet he does, I
thought. I wondered what
was the attack word Mrs.
Burns would use to send
Herman into action. It could
not be an ordinary word that
a visitor might accidentally
utter. It would have to be
something distinctive like
"Sieg Heil!"
Herman wasn't impressed
with me. He just stared. To
this day, I'm certain he was
hoping I'd make one move or
speak one word that some-
how threatened his owner.
Should that occur, Herman
would have joyfully distrib-
uted bloody fragments of my
carcass over the entire moun-
tainside.
I escorted Mrs. Burns into
her home, keeping my voice
low and agreeable. Once in-
side, Mrs. Burns thanked me
for the ride home, and we
said goodnight. I was grateful
she did not offer me a cup of
coffee or anything else that
might have delayed my es-
cape from the watchful, ever-
ready eyes of her faithful
hellhound.
Herman waddled me to my
car. Neither of us spoke. As I
drove down the mountain
through the snow, I felt much
older and wiser. And thank-
ful, as only someone with an
active imagination can be
after emerging from the far
end of a squeaker.
I never went back to the
Chamber meetings. A few
months later I moved to an-
other town. I have not joined
any more organizations. Some
nights, I contentedly sit and
wonder who is giving lifts
home to the local blind wid-
ows. And how many of those
ladies have a hellhound like
Herman waiting for them.

Completely baked suggestions


Among my favorite film ban-
ter is an exchange between Ben-
jamin and his father, Mr.
Braddock in the movie "The
Graduate."
Remember this scene?
Mr. Braddock: "Ben, this
whole idea sounds pretty half-
baked."
Benjamin: "Oh, it's not. It's
completely baked."
With that I bring you some
thoughts that were completely
baked recently during my all-
too-frequent bouts of daydream-
ing:
Banter for billboards
I'm certainly not a marketing
expert, but I'd like to suggest to
our county tourism gurus that
they consider promoting our
parks and the Pinellas Trail on
billboards off Interstate 4 right in
the heart of Disney World.
How about an advertisement
that says "hit the trail," promot-
ing the Pinellas Trail and show-
ing a bicyclist using the trail? Or,
"hit the beaches and the trail,"


contend it is too busy for them.
Nevertheless, I've been on it
Tom sometimes when there's plenty
of room, more users, whether
Germond they walk, ride or- in my case -
- lollygag.


or "life's a beach, and a park."
I'm sure somebody can come
up with better slogans than
that, but you get the point. I
think county officials do a good
job spreading the word out
about this area, but I think our
park's natural beauty may be
lost on some visitors. And now
we have a new one, the 163-acre
Eagle Lake Park, located in the
middle of the county, that's al-
luring.
The first time I even knew
anything about the Pinellas Trail
was when I rode underneath it a
week before I started working
here in 2004. I lived in Central
Florida most of my life.
Of course, the trail has strong
usage, averaging 90,000 people
per month, and some bicyclists
who like to streak along the trail

Bumper bashing
I'm sure you've been waiting
eagerly for an update on my de-
tached bumper.
It's back on the car, where it
belongs.
As you may recall, the
bumper of my 2000 Altima fell
off when I pulled into a parking
space a month ago.
My ace mechanics reattached
it for much less than what I
thought it would cost when the
curb attacked it.
All's well that ends well.
However, unfortunately, I'm
probably going to let some peo-
ple down- like Largo officials.
I was going to give the city my
bumper to use as art in the new
community center, to keep costs
down, but such is life.
Or I was going to suggest to


the Rotary Club of Indian Rocks
Beach that they add a new event
to their annual Oktoberfest:
bumper bashing.
Instead of throwing a beer keg
for distance, competitors in the
contest would take aim at my
detached bumper.
Pretend it's oil spillers.

Banter for billboards, part II
With all the recent sightings of
coyotes in the area, maybe offi-
cials could use the cagey critters
to their advantage. Why not have
a coyote crossing and market
the wild side of Pinellas County?
Not sure where to put the coy-
ote crossing yet. They seem to do
a pretty darn good job getting
around the county on their own,
having been seen on golf cours-
es, in neighborhoods, on Trea-
sure Island and in wooded
areas.
No telling what other kind of
wildlife would use a coyote cross-
ing.
Monkey see, monkey do.

State reports decrease


By SUZETTE PORTER


Pinellas County's unemployment rate for
April is down nearly a full percentage point,
according to the latest figures from the Flori-
da Agency of Workforce Innovation.
April's rate was 11.5 percent, compared to
March when 12.4 percent of the county's
labor force was looking for a job.
In April, 51,629 of the county's labor force
of 447,989 were looking for a job. In March,
55,693 out of a labor force of 450,195 were
unemployed.
While, the numbers appear to be moving in
the right direction, unemployment in Pinellas
remains high compared to April 2009 when
the unemployment rate was 9.8 percent, and
only 43,765 of 446,068 were unemployed.
Florida's unemployment rate for April also
is down 0.3 percent the first monthly decline

Opening this week

Gyllenhaal plays a prince; Parker reprises her 'Sex and the City' role


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Al-
fred Molina and Steve Toussaint
Director: Mike Newell
Rated: PG-13
In this epic action-adventure set in the mystical lands of Per-
sia, a rogue prince named Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly
joins forces with a mysterious princess Tamina (Gemma Arter-
ton) and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an
ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time a gift
from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to
rule the world.
Dastan, driven to prove his worth, leads the attack on Ala-
mut, a peaceful holy city which is reported by spies to be
hoarding weapons that are supplied to Persia's enemies. But in
fact, Alamut holds a much deeper and greater treasure the

legendary Sands of Time, which gives mortals the ability to
turn back time. Dastan comes into possession of an ancient
glass-handled dagger, the key to accessing the Sands of Time,
but King Sharaman is assassinated and Dastan is accused of
the crime.
Now on the run and desperate to clear his name, Dastan
finds himself in an uneasy alliance with Tamina, a feisty young
Alamut princess whose family has guarded the Sands of Time
for centuries, and who will do whatever it takes to protect it.
Dastan and Tamina, who are like oil and water from the
start, are challenged to survive the unforgiving desert and
some even more unforgiving enemies from the wily Sheikh
Amar (Alfred Molina) and master African knife thrower Seso
(Steve Toussaint) to the deadly attempts of the Hassansins -
each one trained to kill with their own lethal techniques.
It will take all of Dastan's bravery and fighting skills, as well
as Tamina's cunning, in order to uncover the one truly respon-
sible for the king's death, and for him to discover the nobility
that truly lies within.

'Sex and the City 2'
Genre: Comedy, drama and romance
Cast: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon,
Kim Cattrall and John Corbett
Director: Michael Patrick King

Rated: R
The fun, the fashion, the friendship: "Sex and the City 2"
brings it all back and more as Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker),
Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda
(Cynthia Nixon) take another bite out of The Big Apple and
beyond carrying on with their busy lives and loves in a sequel
that truly sparkles.
What happens after you say "I do"? Life is everything the
ladies ever wished it to be, but it wouldn't be "Sex and the City"
if life didn't hold a few more surprises ... this time in the form of
a glamorous, sun-drenched adventure that whisks the women
away from New York to one of the most luxurious, exotic and
vivid places on earth, where the party never ends and there's
something mysterious around every corner. It's an escape that
comes exactly at the right moment for the four friends, who are
finding themselves in and fighting against the traditional
roles of marriage, motherhood and more.
After all, sometimes you just have to get away with the girls.
The following will open in limited release.

'George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead'
Genre: Horror
Cast: Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe,
Devon Bostick and Richard Fitzpatrick
Director: George A. Romero
Rated: R
Immediately following the events of "Diary of the Dead," "Sur-
vival of the Dead" is the sixth film from George A. Romero to
look at a world where humans are in the minority and the zom-
bies rule.

subtle cocktail jazz-pop first

OPENING, from page 10

two families are locked in a struggle for power,
as it has been for generations. The O'Flynn's,
headed by patriarch Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth
Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a
shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed
by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel
that the zombies should be quarantined and
kept "alive," in hopes that a solution will some-
day be found.
The O'Flynn's, who are clearly outnum-
bered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the
mainland, where he meets up with a band of
soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan
Van Sprang). They join forces and return to
the island, to find that the zombie plague has
fully gripped the divided community.
As the battle between humans and zombies
escalates, the master filmmaker continues to
reinvent the modern horror genre with wicked
humor and pointed social commentary.

'Micmacs'
Genre: Foreign and comedy
Cast: Jamel Debbouze, Dany Boon, Andre
Dussollier, Julie Ferrier and Yolande Moreau


Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Rated: R
First it was a mine that exploded in the
middle of the Moroccan desert. Years later, it
was a stray bullet that lodged in his brain ...
Bazil doesn't have much luck with weapons.
The first made him an orphan, the second
holds him on the brink of sudden, instant
death.
Released from the hospital after his acci-
dent, Bazil is homeless. Luckily, this inspired
and gentle-natured dreamer is quickly taken
in by a motley crew of junkyard dealers living
in a veritable Ali Baba's cave. The group's
talents and aspirations are as surprising as
they are diverse: Remington, Calculator,
Buster, Slammer, Elastic Girl, Tiny Pete and
Mama Chow.
Then one day, walking by two huge build-
ings, Bazil recognizes the logos of the
weapons manufacturers that caused all of
his misfortune. He sets out to take revenge,
with the help of his faithful gang of wacky
friends. Underdogs battling heartless indus-
trial giants, the gang relives the battle of
David and Goliath, with all the imagination
and fantasy of Buster Keaton.

Horoscopes
May 27, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Not everyone believes as
you do, Capricorn. Keep that
in mind when conflict bub-
bles. Listen and make al-
lowances as needed. You just
might learn a thing or two.
Aquarius
January 20 February 18
You're a realist, Aquarius,
and see things as they are.
While that works well for you
most of the time, you need to
give in and let the dreamer in
you come out this week.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
A loved one grows distant.
Don't take it personally,
Pisces. They are dealing with
something and will return to
their sunny self in no time.
Aries
March 21 April 19
Want to get noticed? Don't
make a spectacle of yourself,
Aries. Go for something a little
less subtle and more com-
mendable. An act of kindness
goes a long way.
Taurus
April 20 May 20
You don't always have to
explain yourself, Taurus. Pro-
ceed as usual and leave the
explaining to others. A relative
needs a favor fast; help them.
Gemini
May 21 June 21
Someone has got you twist-
ed around their finger, but
that doesn't mean you have to
succumb to their every wish.
Learn to say no and protect
yourself, Gemini.
Cancer
June 22 July 22
Someone new comes into
your inner circle. They may
be different, but that doesn't
entitle you to dismiss them,
Cancer. Embrace their
uniqueness.
Leo
July 23 August 22
You tend to be very private,
but if you want to get any-
where with a certain person,
you are going to have to be
more revealing. Open up, Leo.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
Up for some fun? Then
have some, Virgo, and don't
let others make you feel guilty
for doing so. You deserve time
to do the things you enjoy.
Libra
September 23 October 22
An incident at work revives
your joy for life. Get out there,
Libra, and meet new people
and try new things. The world
is your oyster. A friend re-
turns a favor.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You've got a barrel of issues
to deal with at home. Con-
front them one at a time,
Scorpio, and use reason
rather than emotion to re-
solve them.
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You're on top of the world
this week, Sagittarius. Every-
thing goes your way, but be
careful you don't go over-
board. You do have limita-
tions.
