City gets update
on transit issues
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Au-
thority Executive Director Tim
Garling gave city officials and
leaders "high marks" for its partic-
ipation thus far in transit plan-
ning.
When mixed with good land
use, public transit can have an
important impact on economic de-
velopment, stimulating jobs, he
said.
"If you look around the country,
places that have good rail systems
that have a right kind of land use
attract business and help busi-
ness..." Garling said.

Waterways remain
oil free
Despite the fact that no oil has
reached Pinellas County beaches,
and the Incident Command in
Florida says the near-term threat
remains low, several local indus-
tries have sustained losses due to
visitors canceling their trips. Peo-
ple are leery of seafood caught
anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico.
Local officials continue their
vigil, carefully monitoring for any
signs of the weathered oil.

City OKs temporary
By TOM GERMOND


LARGO Businesses are expected to get tempo-
rary relief from the city's sign ordinance under
what city officials are calling an economic stimu-
lus program.
After hearing pleas from businesses for weeks,
city commissioners voted 6-0 June 15 to approve
an ordinance that provides temporary sign oppor-
tunities to businesses citywide for one year.
Among the issues discussed was the amount of
days per year the temporary signs will be allowed.
Staff had recommended that the signs be allowed
for 30 days once every three months. Commis-
sioners hadn't reached a consensus on the issue
during a previous discussion on the issue.
Commissioner Robert Murray said he was in
favor of allowing businesses to have 45 consecu-
tive days per quarter to display the additional sig-
nage.
"... As businesses are struggling, I'd hate to be


City commissioners adopted an
ordinance that provides temporary
relief from the city's sign
regulations. A second public
hearing on the ordinance is set for
July 6.

the one to have a business owner come to me and
say, 'I went out of business because I didn't have
the opportunity to put up a sign,"' Commissioner
Robert Murray said.
Other commissioners agreed.
"As many of you know, I'm a small business-
man, and it's tough out there right now," Com-
missioner Woody Brown said. "Anything we can
do at this point I think is going to be good to help
bring businesses downtown and keep the ones


sign rules
that are there."
Mayor Pat Gerard also supported the 45-day
requirement. However, she said she thinks com-
missioners will take a closer look at the effective-
ness of the sign relief in nine months.
"Please don't expect for this to be automatically
renewed," she said. "I'm really hoping it works for
you, but we worked hard on that original sign or-
dinance. This is a big step backwards."
Commissioner Curtis Holmes was against re-
quiring the 45 days to be consecutive. He said the
business owners should have more flexibility.
Under the proposed requirement, he said, the or-
dinance will lose its effectiveness.
Community Development Director Carol Strick-
lin said the feedback the city has received from
the business community is that it is comfortable
with the provision as written.
Besides the 45-day provision, the ordinance

Commission


mulls over


office terms
By TOM GERMOND

LARGO Efforts by city officials to come up
with a plan to reduce costs by scheduling city
elections to coincide with countywide elections
have been easier said than done.
However, commissioners are moving closer to
adopting an ordinance calling for a referendum
on the November general election ballot that
would accomplish that.
Commissioners discussed at length June 15
three options for rescheduling elections in even
numbered years at an estimated cost savings of
$70,000 per election. In previous discussions,
higher turnout has also been discussed as an
advantage for making the change.
Under different scenarios, commissioners
eventually would have four-year terms. However,
commissioners cited pros and cons to the three
options presented, such as continuing to have
elections in an odd-numbered year, 2011, to ac-
complish the transition.
City Attorney Alan Zimmet said city officials
did some research as to how other cities ad-

Local legislators warn

about potential effects

of oil spill on Florida


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO Local legislators gave a
grim report June 14 about the oil
spill's damage to Florida at a Largo
Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce
luncheon.
State Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwa-
ter, said that the state's budget is
being impacted today by the effects
of the oil spill on tourism.
"As you heard before, cancella-
tions in our tourism industry today,
that's sales tax dollars and bed tax
dollars that we are not going to col-
lect," Hooper said. "And that money
is what the state of Florida lives off
of."
He said that state government
does not get one penny of property


taxes.
"When people cancel their trips to
Florida in this the peak tourism sea-
son that we are going to have, we'll
pay for that next year," Hooper said.
'That's money we are not going to
have. So we're not going to have any
fun formulating a budget."
Both Hooper and Janet Long, D-
Seminole, warned that the spill
could cause ecological damage for
decades.
"Think for just one second. If a
tropical system comes up, around
Cuba, comes up into the Gulf of
Mexico and churns those waters,
we're toast. Because it will impact
not only the West Coast of Florida,

the Keys it will go up the east coast of Florida,
Georgia, the Carolinas. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf
of Mexico are harmed forever and ever, and we can't
let that happen," Hooper said.
Long said it's critical for state officials to start
work on an energy plan. She said harnessing other
energy sources can create numerous jobs, calling
Florida the "solar capital of the world."
She said there is no reason why the state
shouldn't be investing in solar energy and the pro-
duction of electric vehicles.
Long said it will take more than 50 years for the
state's ecosystems and the gulf to return to normal
and that is if it is stopped immediately.
"Because those coral reefs that are being dam-
aged by oil spill, you have to think of them as the
rain forests of the oceans," Long said.
Asked why the state hasn't been proactive in
protecting its waters against further damage, state

Sen. Charlie Justice, D-St. Petersburg, said he was
"as frustrated as you are."
"We have not seen the reaction by our state lead-
ers that I hoped we would have seen," Justice said.
"What will have to happen is people are going to
have to go out and start doing things, as far as the
cleaning up of it."
He said coordination has been missing, and the
federal government should have taken over the op-
eration since the April 20 explosion.
State Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, has a
different viewpoint. He said he has been in confer-
ence calls frequently with state and federal officials
to keep abreast of their activities regarding the
spill.
He said about 300 skimming ships are in Florida
waters, and about 3,000 in the total area of the
Gulf of Mexico.
Frishe said there is a substantial amount of
planning and coordination undertaken through the
state's Emergency Operations Center and the U.S.

"We have deployed approximately 275,000 feet of
booms, just in Florida. You don't hear about a lot
of it because most of it is deployed to protect the
marshes and the estuaries," he said. "They are
tougher to clean up than beaches, quite frankly.
That's why they get top priority."
State Rep. Bill Heller, D-St. Petersburg, said the
area has "probably the most outstanding scientists
relative to marine study" at the University of South
Florida in St. Petersburg.
The college has a group of scientists assembled
to not only look at what can be done to mitigate the
spill "but when the spill is over, how you are going
to monitor what is happening."
"We are going to be dealing with an awful lot of
things, but we have the expertise right here," he
said.
Legislators were asked to discuss the oil spill by
the chamber and other legislative issues at the
business luncheon hosted by Cypress Palms.

allows businesses to display
either a banner sign not to
exceed 32 square feet and se-
curely attached to a building
or a fabric sign attached to a
vertical pole. Such "feather"
signs would be restricted to a
height of 12 feet. The ordi-
nance also requires a single
sign permit be obtained at a
cost of $50 for the entire one-
year period.
Michael Novak, general
manager of the Goodyear tire
dealership along the Clear-
water-Largo Road, said the
commission's action will be a
"huge help, and I appreciate
your time and consideration
for businesses in the city of
Largo." Novak has repeatedly
asked city officials to provide
temporary relief from the ex-
isting standards.
He said he knows the city
has a master plan for rede-
velopment areas and wants
contractors and developers to
invest in the plan.
"It would be great to have
them come and see business
es open, filling the needs of
residents. You can tell them
that you helped these busi-
nesses by allowing a little
extra signage during this eco-
nomic downturn," Novak
said.
Joseph Stefko, owner of
the Hair Jungle off West Bay
Drive, said the 45-day provi-
sion, among others, is impor-
tant.
"We are all really strug-
gling; things are really hard,"
Stefko said.
A second public hearing on
the ordinance is slated for
July 6.

TERMS, from page 1

dressed the issue, "and it's
kind of all over the map."
"Some have granted
(term) extensions; some
have not," he said.
He said if commission-
ers don't grant any exten-
sions or do something
different with their terms
of office, it will take longer
for the city to reach the
goal of not having elec-
tions in "off countywide
years." said.
"We tried to make it as
easy to follow as possible,
but it isn't the least com-
plicated issue," Zimmet
said.
Several commissioners
said they liked the option
that would not require the
extension of their existing
terms. But they said the
downside is that it calls for
an election in 2011, when
no countywide elections
will be held and the city's
costs will be higher.
Currently, the six city
commissioners and the
mayor all serve staggered
three-year terms. City
commissioners also were
concerned about the pos-
sibility of voters being con-
fused by the charter
revision.
Zimmet said he has re-
ceived an opinion from the
state Division of Elections
regarding a bill that was
passed two years ago lim-
iting local governments'
ability to campaign regard-
ing to election issues. He
said the opinion is "favor-
able that we would have a
little bit more ability to ed-
ucate the public as why
you are doing this."
Commissioners asked
Zimmet to bring back
some proposed ballot lan-
guage regarding the tran-
sition options discussed.

City praised for its participation


in regional mass transit planning


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority executive
director believes that Largo is "well-positioned" to take advan-
tage of public transit opportunities.
Tim Garling was asked by Commissioner Woody Brown at a
work session June 8 how Largo compares with other munici-
palities in preparing for mass transit plans.
Garling gave city officials and leaders "high marks" for its
participation thus far in transit planning.
Garling said he likes the city's approach to transit planning
for several reasons, such as being able to take advantage of
employment opportunities in the Gateway area.
... If you live a long way from where you work, it's going to
be a long trip. So if you start thinking about creating this
more sustainable livable world, trying to create residential
areas and nice living places near where that employment is
going to be, Largo is perfectly positioned to fill those kind of
roles," Garling said.
Garling said he likes visioning efforts undertaken by Largo
officials regarding land use.
'That's probably going to be the most important component
of what the future will look like," he said.
When mixed with good land use, public transit can have an
important impact on economic development, stimulating jobs,
he said.
'This has really been proven in many communities across
the country," he said.
He called the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Au-
thority's efforts a "real positive step" in cooperation among its
seven member counties to take a regional approach to ad-
dressing transportation issues.
Garling said plans call for the Gateway area of Pinellas
County to be the top employment center in the county be-
tween now and 2035.

He called the federal government's allocation of $1 billion
for high-speed rail between Orlando and Tampa "the game
changer."
"We need to have a way to distribute people when they get
to Tampa," he said "from high speed rail to Pinellas County,
to our beaches, to our employment centers, employment
areas."
The bus system is important, too, in completing a network
of transportation. The transit authority has plans to link main
activity areas in the county with high frequency service that
has few transfers, he said.
"We have to get people moving from place to place quicker,"
Garling said.
The agency is looking to double ridership over a 10-year-pe-
riod if it can obtain funding. In combination with rail service,
that would give the county an excellent public transit system,
he said.
Eighty-one percent of Pinellas residents want better transit,
he said, along with local businesses.
"If you look around the country, places that have good rail
systems that have a right kind of land use attract business
and help business..." Garling said.
The area also needs to have a good transit system to stay
competitive in serving tourists, he said.
Garling said to obtain federal funding for transit improve-
ments "you have to have a proven sustainable funding source
to operate it. The first step is you have to have that sales tax
referendum in place."
A new transportation task force has been established to ex-
amine the future of public transit in the county. The task
force's primary goal is finding ways to fund a system.
It takes between six and 12 years to complete a rail project.
Design takes several years because officials have to make sure
they have property acquired along the entire route. Signal sys-
tems, power structure and stations must be designed, he said.

the flag and its significance and carried out the 13 folds of the flag. Each fold has a specific

Wilson first proclaimed June 14 as Flag Day in 1916.

Coping with the disaster


The oil spill with no end in sight has hit
home.
Understandably, businesses, officials and
residents are upset and worried about the
possibility of oil making its way to county
beaches, threatening marine wildlife, commer-
cial and recreational fishing, the tourism in-
dustry people of all walks of life.
As far as what chambers of commerce and
tourist-related businesses should be telling
tourists making vacation plans, Shelia Cole,
executive director for Clearwater Beach
Chamber of Commerce, gives good advice:
"Please be honest."
People want a guarantee for the Fourth of
July that the beaches will remain clean, "but I
can't control the weather or Mother Nature so
the truth is no one knows what will happen in
the coming months," Cole said.
Well put. If tourists are led to believe that
the spill won't cause any impact in Pinellas
County, what will they think if they come here
and find that oil has soiled the beaches? The
hospitality industry's reputation would be tar-
nished.
Meanwhile, on an encouraging note, Gov.
Charlie Crist showed leadership in visiting
Pinellas County last week, addressing the
problem of oil spill on a variety of fronts. For


instance he said he would be calling airlines,
encouraging them to amend their cancellation
policies just as many area hotels have already
done.
Crist is also hoping to meet with the state
Legislature in July to come up with a consen-
sus to ban offshore drilling.
On the local front, a variety of volunteer op-
portunities are available in the area regarding
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. For instance,
volunteers are needed at the Suncoast
Seabird Sanctuary for tasks such as feeding
birds and answering the phone. Also, veteri-
narians and wildlife paraprofessionals are
needed for an emergency call list to clean oiled
birds. Visit www.seabirdsanctuary.com or call
391-2473.
For other opportunities, call Pinellas Coun-
ty Volunteer Services at 464-3945, e-mail vol
unteers@pinellascounty.org.
Media coverage in recent weeks of the spill,
such as the sickening sight of seabirds cov-
ered with oil, has triggered unprecedented
anger toward offshore oil drilling with good
reason. We hope such passion will galvanize
legions of volunteers willing to do anything to
help with cleanup efforts and rescuing wildlife
should the spill be felt locally.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Questions regarding Belleair's
special master
Editor:
Citizens of the town of Belleair, by now you
must all have read in the June 3 issue of the
Belleair Bee that our Town Commission has
"ousted" as the Bee reported, our Code En-
forcement Board and will be hiring a code en-
forcement special master, under the guise of
getting tighter control.
If (and that word "if' is the operative word)
the town had followed its own laws and ordi-
nances, it would have had the same rule of
law as they expect this hired professional to
do for them.
The Code Enforcement Board has been a
long term fixture in Belleair, long before my
coming here in August 1986. As I see this
new hiring, it is yet another ala Washington
D.C. charade at getting people out of their
hair and creating bigger government.
If this special master does not shape up the
way any commissioner or town manager ex-
pects he should in their mind, he will face the
same firing squad that Steve Papalas, Steve
Cottrell, Joel Tew and Chief Harmansky
faced. Now that the town has fired its Code
Enforcement Board, one has to start wonder-
ing which all volunteer board will be next to
make room for yet another hired hand whom
the town can control or be shown the exit
door?

Help prepare for a disaster
Editor:
During this potentially frightening time in
waiting to see if or when the BP oil spill in
Louisiana will reach our beautiful shores,
quick-thinking organizations have offered
their places as donation drop-off sites.
These sites are set up to accept such items
as Dawn dish detergent, hard and soft brush-
es, Pepto Bismol, animal cages and paper
towels to assist in cleaning oil-laden birds
and wildlife. Old but clean T-shirts and bot-
tles of water for the clean-up volunteers and
most of all money are sorely needed.
For the residents in the Largo area who
weren't aware, the lobby of their police de-


partment has been set up to be our neighbor-
hood drop-off site. I'm told the police volun-
teers deliver the donations to the Suncoast
Seabird Sanctuary, but if the sanctuary is
closer to you, please drop your items off there
and get to see first hand what their volun-
teers are doing.
I've been to both places, and it is amazing
to see how people are rushing to help in these
tough times to prepare for a disaster that is
not nearly over with. Largo, let's do our part!

Don't blame the traffic signals
Re: 'City won't get red light cameras yet,'
Friday, June 11
Editor:
As a professional driver and driving in-
structor for almost 20 years in three states in
traffic safety, I am more than a little tired of
everyone "blaming" the red lights for "caus-
ing" collisions. The only one responsible for a
collision is the driver(s), either for being dis-
tracted, egotistical, reckless, or simply forget-
ting the simple rules of driving.
All of the "rear-end" collisions mentioned in
the article were caused by a following driver,
not allowing for a reasonable distance to stop.
Whether it was a yellow light, a small child, or
a shadow that startled the driver, every driver
has the right and obligation to stop suddenly
if necessary, to avoid damage and injury. It's
called "mitigating your loss." The extension of
that obligation is that all drivers following an
other vehicle must leave an adequate dis-
tance between themselves and the other car.
As for revenue sharing ... c'mon ... think ...
they are posted with a warning to prevent
run-throughs and the very reason that people
stop suddenly is to avoid sharing the revenue
from their pocket to their community. You
can't have it both ways. In other words, the
better they work, the less revenue they will
produce ... with a target value of zero rev-
enue.
Put the blame where it belongs ... on the
drivers ... then, red light cameras wouldn't
even be needed.

On political discourse


Intelligent, thoughtful dis-
cussion about politics can be
a delightful experience for ra-
tional, well-informed persons
whose primary goal is to learn,
rather than convince. But
such discussion is rare in
today's society. Its require-
ments are too extreme.
For example, how often do
you encounter someone who
is both intelligent and
thoughtful? And if so, are they
also rational and well-in-
formed (at least about poli-
tics)? Furthermore, when
such exceptional persons en-
gage in political exchanges,
are they really seeking new in-
formation and ideas, or is
their true objective to demean
the other guy's beliefs?
If you fit the above idealized
description and can
find others of your
ilk to talk to, I con- How
gratulate you. Most
of us (including me) somi
fall far short of that thou
description. There- ratio
fore, our fate is to
talk politics with
persons who like
us are not very bright or
thoughtful, who often don't
think rationally, who are not
especially well-informed, and
whose main goal is to convince
their conversational partners
that they are misguided idiots.
Spending time with such
persons is stupid and waste-
ful. Or a lot of fun, if you play
your cards right. Here are
some tips.
1. Before you get into a po-
litical discussion, brush your
teeth or walk your dog. That
way, you'll know you've ac-
complished something worth-
while for the day. You sure as
heck won't achieve that while
talking politics.
2. Early on, determine
whether your talkmates are
carrying weapons or have his-
tories of violent behavior. If
that is the case, quickly leave,


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver



even if you have to fake nau-
sea or a heart attack. Political
discussions can heat up fast.
3. At the outset, give up any
hope of converting your lis-
teners to your way of think-
ing. It can't be done. Instead,
try to tear their positions to
shreds. Make your opponents
look like fools.
4. The best weapon you
have is to be better-informed
than they are. That shouldn't
be hard. Most of us rely on
only one or two sources of in-


v often do you encoi
eone who is both intelliger
rightful? And if so, are the)
rnal and well-informed.


formation, such as Rush Lim-
baugh or the New Yorker
magazine. That's not nearly
enough.
5. Another useful tactic: de-
mand specifics, and use them
yourself. When someone says,
"So-and-so is a crook and our
country is going to the dogs,"
gently ask him/her to state
exactly why he/she feels that
way. Facts, not generalities,
are what cuts the mustard.
6. Ask your opponents
questions that will test the
limits of their knowledge.
"Mrs. Pflarm, how do you
think Bill Clinton's handling
of the Bosnian conflict could
be useful in our policies to-
ward Afghanistan today?" In
the dead silence that follows,
you can go mix yourself an-
other drink.
7. Always remain calm. In


Tampa Bay
NEWSPAPERS
BEACON LEADER BEE


any debate, the person who
starts yelling first is the one
who usually loses. But be
careful your quiet air of de-
tachment can provoke a
physical assault by the
shouter.
8. If you are backed into a
corner by some know-it-all
with a Ph.D. in political sci-
ence, don't hesitate to strike
back with a fictitious refer-
ence. "Dr. Wheatcroft, I con-
cede your point about the
Bork nomination, but have
you read the 1977 Moynihan
report on the history of judges
who have straggly white
beards?" Only later will
Wheatcroft realize you were
scamming him.
9. If anyone in the discus-
sion is desperate enough to
break out the
American flag, the
unter cross of Jesus,
the Star of David
it and or the Sword of
y also Islam as the ulti-
mate justification
for a point of view,
you might as well
go home. The dis-
cussion will go downhill fast.
Religious conviction and pa-
triotism have their well-de-
served places in our culture,
but not in a serious political
exchange.
10. If you're a woman argu-
ing with a man, wear your
sexiest dress. Smile a lot, and
occasionally reach out to
touch your opponent's arm or
knee. After a while he'll be so
rattled he can't even recite the
First Amendment. If you're a
man, use the Bill Buckley ap-
proach. Slouch in your chair,
stammer, widen your eyes
abruptly and often, and flash
a brilliant smile for no appar-
ent reason. This will confuse,
irritate and distract your ad-
versaries. Which is really a
big part of the fun.

About that county ban on using fertilizers ...


I find it ironic that Pinellas
County has ordered a ban
on fertilizing shrubbery and
lawns, while the federal gov-
ernment allows hundreds of
thousands of gallons of
crude oil to pollute the Gulf
of Mexico.
I say allows because Presi-
dent Obama & Company are
doing little to take the reins
from BP Oil to end this dis-
aster.
The escalating oil spill has
already killed countless
birds, fish, turtles and dol-
phins. It has become
Obama's folly just as the
Bush Administration fell on
its collective face in 2005
after Hurricane Katrina dev-
astated the New Orleans
area.
The wholesale destruction
of sea life is but a fraction of
the quandary created by this
disaster. The fishing indus-
try is reporting high unem-
ployment because massive
sections of the gulf cannot
be harvested. On the shores


of Louisiana, and probably
soon in other states, shell-
fish normally used for
human consumption are
being killed off by oil.
Then there is the hotel,
restaurant, recreation and
other industries that are af-
fected because tourists are
staying away. A quick check
of foreign newspapers at
www.newseum.org/todays
frontpages shows that the
British, French and even
Asian press are pressuring
their populations to spend
money at home rather than
in our gulf states.
So, yes, I do find it ironic
that Pinellas County com-
missioners have voted to
ban the use and sale of fer-
tilizers to preserve the in-
tegrity of our waters while
our federal government sits
on its collective hands and
allows BP Oil to manage a
crisis that can become more
tragic should a tropical
storm or hurricane push all
that mess toward Tampa

Bay.
Pinellas County govern-
ment, like most other regula-
tors, threatens to close or
minimize services at parks,
law enforcement and in
other high profile areas.
That's due to financial chal-
lenges created by lower
property values and the hob-
bled economy. Meanwhile,
governments spend money
on pet projects and biggest
boondoggle of all, a high
speed rail system between
Tampa and Orlando.
Cities, meanwhile, are
coming up with innovative
ways to take our hard-
earned dollars. Municipal
employees write tickets for
committing the dastardly
deed of watering lawns on


the wrong day. St. Peters-
burg has unleashed a cadre
of volunteer police to issue
parking tickets. (At least one
city, Pinellas Park, had the
sense enough to take away
that authority from its vol-
unteer cops.) Some are in-
stalling red light cameras.
All in the name of public
safety when, really, it is all
about filling government cof-
fers.
We have a water short-
age partly because of the
troubled C.W. "Bill"
Young Regional Reservoir
in Hillsborough County that
cost $147 million to build.
Repairing the leaks can take
up to five years and another
$125 million. And who
caused that situation? Lax
government officials who
didn't keep tabs on contrac-
tors.
So now Pinellas County
residents are being told not
to fertilize their already

DoYou Have Skin Cancer? PreCancer?
Skin cancer is very common in the sunshine state. The American
Cancer Society estimates that there are over 1 million cases of skin
cancer per year in the United States. While most cancers are curable
when treated early, many are detected too late and can be deadly.
There are 3 main types of skin cancer: Basil Cell Carcinoma (BCC),
Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Malignant Melanoma (MM).
Additionally, Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are the most common
precancer and may progress into Squamous cell if left untreated.
Basal Cell is by far the most common skin cancer, accounting for
nearly 80% of all skin cancers in the U.S. Thankfully, these rarely
spread (metastasize) but can be disfiguring. Basal Cell
Carcinomas often appear as a flesh-toned bump (papule) and have
no symptoms. Eventually, they become a sore that bleeds or doesn't
heal. These are most often treated in the office as an outpatient with
extremely high success rate.

Pinellas County prepares as wait continues


By SUZETTE PORTER


Almost two months after
British Petroleum's Deepwa-
ter Horizon rig exploded and
sank into the Gulf of Mexico,
Pinellas County's beaches
and waterways remain free of
any impact.
Latest estimates from the
National Incident Command,


using three different method-
ologies, show oil continuing
to flow from the well at a rate
of anywhere from 12,000 to
40,000 barrels per day far
more than earlier estimates.
In addition, the latest
plans to stop the flow still do
not provide any short-term
solutions, and experts say it
still will be two months be-

fore a relief well will be com-

Meanwhile, residents living
along the Gulf of Mexico are
suffering from the impact of
the worst oil spill in U.S. his-
tory.
Despite the fact that no oil
has reached Pinellas County
beaches, and the Incident
Command in Florida says the
near-term threat remains
low, several local industries
have sustained losses due to
visitors canceling their trips.
People are leery of seafood
caught anywhere in the Gulf
of Mexico.
Many experts believe that
the loop current, which never
comes closer than about 100
miles from the majority of
Florida's west coast, will fun-
nel the oil south of the Keys.
State officials are more con-
cerned about the potential
threat to south and east
Florida than the west coast.
Still local officials continue
their vigil, carefully monitor-
ing for any signs of the
weathered oil. Plans are con-
stantly updated in hopes re-
sources will be in place to
protect the most environ-
mentally sensitive areas if
needed.
The latest actions by local
officials involve assessing
current conditions to allow a
better accounting of damages
should any oil from BP's well
impact Pinellas County and
Tampa Bay.

coast from Anclote Key to
Fort De Soto Park.
Levy said although the oil
currently flowing into the
Gulf of Mexico from the
Deepwater Horizon well re-
mains hundreds of miles
from Pinellas County, it is
important to take a snapshot
of the quality of coastline
now.
Pinellas County has 180
miles of shoreline, which in-
cludes its beaches and
Tampa Bay.
She said the baseline mon-
itoring samples taken June 9
would allow local officials to
improve their monitoring ca-
pabilities and do a better job
of planning for a response if
it is needed.
Camille Evans, public rela-
tions specialist with Pinellas
County Communications,
said the samples taken June
9 also would be analyzed to
confirm whether any traces
from the 1993 oil spill re-
mained on local beaches.
She said tests were taken of
the sandy sediment offshore
and onshore.
On Aug. 10, 1993, about
32,000 gallons of mixed light
fuels and 333,000 gallons of
#6 fuel oil were discharged
into local waters after three
vessels collided near the
mouth of Tampa Bay. Ac-
cording to a report from the
National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration, the
spill and its associated re-
sponse action resulted in
harm to a variety of natural
resources, including birds,
sea turtles, mangroves, sea-
grasses, salt marshes, oyster
beds, surface water, sedi-
ments and beaches.
Levy said there were no
known impacts remaining
from the 1993 incident; how-


ever, sampling of the sandy
sediment would confirm the
current conditions.
"The county's emergency
management department
and the environmental man-
agement department keep in
touch with the U.S. Coast
Guard incident command
center (in St. Petersburg) to
keep track of where the oil is
and projected to be so we
stay in the best position to
protect the local environ-
ment," Levy said.
She said NOAA was ag-
gressively tracking the differ-
ent areas of oil and releasing
trajectories of its movements
on a daily basis.
"Thus far there have been
no signs (of oil), nothing," she
said. "It's all hundreds of
miles away from here."
She confirmed that re-
searchers at the University of
Florida believe that Pinellas
County and much of the west
coast of Florida will be pro-
tected from any major impact
due to the loop current,
which should take the oil
south of the keys.
According to NOAA, the
loop current is an area of
warm water that travels up
from the Caribbean, past the
Yucatan Peninsula, and into
the Gulf of Mexico. The cur-
rent is also known as the
Florida current as it flows
through the Florida Strait,
into the Gulf Stream, and
heads north up the eastern
coast of the U.S.
Experts with the Coopera-
tive Institute for Marine and
Atmospheric Studies report
that the loop current is vari-
able in position and can oc-
casionally reach as high as
the Mississippi River delta or
the Florida continental shelf.
Levy said any oil that
makes it to Pinellas County
would be heavily weathered.
"Sun breaks it (oil) down
and weathers it," she said. "If
any comes here, we can ex-
pect it in the form of tar balls
or tar mats."
As of June 11, Levy said
the closest oil was 150 miles
away.
Levy's department is in
charge of the county's water


quality in its lakes and
streams, as well as the
health of its seagrasses. She
said if any impact from the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
came to Pinellas County,
everything possible would be
done to protect the most en-
vironmentally sensitive
areas.
"We're staying up-to-date
on the situation and will act
if necessary," she said.
Evans cautioned people
against taking action to pro-
tect the beaches or water-
ways. She said nothing could
be done without first getting
state and federal permits.
She said working outside the
system could result in fines.

Budget preparation process hits major snag


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER Many of the county's constitutional officers
and independents say they are unable to cut the requested 15
percent from their budgets for fiscal year 2011.
County Administrator Bob LaSala requested that all entities
that receive money from the general fund budget make reduc-
tions of 15 percent to meet an estimated shortfall of $40 million
for 2011.
The constitutional officers presented their annual budget re-
ports during a meeting on June 6. Thus far, only one constitu-
tional officer, the judiciary, met the 15 percent target.
Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke said it just wasn't pos-
sible to trim any more after three years of cuts. Burke's budget
came in at $822,140 above the targeted amount.
"I'm sorry to say that we have not met our goal," Burke told
the commissioners.
He said he had cut his budget 31.7 percent in the last five


years. He said his department received money from the state as
well as the county. He said 109 of his employees were funded
by the board of county commissioners.
He talked about the success of his campaign to increase the
number of paperless records in the county and the savings that
program provided to all county departments.
He said budget cuts in past years had eliminated most every-
thing but services that are mandated by statute, ordinance or
interlocal agreement.
Property Appraiser Pam Dubov also told the commissioners
that further budget reductions just were not feasible. Dubov's
budget was $965,420 above the target.
She said 90 percent of her budget was people costs. She said
she had reduced her workforce in the past years and was pre-
pared to cut five additional positions in 2011, "but you reach a
point where you can't cut more people."
She said she currently had 17 percent fewer people "doing a
whole lot more work." She outlined some cost-savings mea-


sures that would become available in future years, but not for
2011.
"I've tried to maintain a responsible budget for years and
years, which is why I can't cut as much (as others)," Dubov
said.
Sheriff Jim Coats submitted a budget of almost $221 million,
but he needs to cut nearly $10 million more to reach the 15
percent target.
Coats said since 2009, he had eliminated 561 positions at
the sheriffs office. He said the sheriffs budget had taken a
huge cut in capital improvements and operating expenses.
While Coats is not proposing to eliminate any positions in
2011, he said it would be the second year, and for some the
third year, that his employees had not received a pay raise.
He said news that pay increases for firefighters, EMTs and
paramedics were causing the county to consider raising the

millage rate for fire districts "did not sit well."
He talked about some of the county services that only his de-
partment provides, such as tracking of sexual predators, the
jail, court security and the aviation unit.
He said he had reluctantly reduced the workforce for the avi-
ation and marine unit because he felt he did not have a choice.
He told a story that emphasized the potential threat from his
actions.
'Two weeks ago in Indian Rocks Beach, a 3-year-old girl,
who was supervised, got away from her family. Everyone was
concerned when they couldn't find her, so they called the (sher-
iffs) department.
'The deputy that responded called for help from the marine
unit, but the closest one was in Tarpon Springs. They then
called for a flight from the aviation unit, but no one was on
duty that day.
"Everyone was screaming at the deputy to do something, but
no help was readily available," Coats said. 'The girl was eventu-
ally found OK, but..."


Tax Collector Diane Nelson reduced her department's budget
by 12 percent; however, an additional $35,090 needs to be cut
to reach 15 percent.
Nelson said she was cutting five positions and retraining and
cross-training remaining personnel. She said it was difficult
getting the required work done with 12 percent fewer employ-
ees.
Pinellas-Pasco Public Defender Bob Dillinger submitted a
budget with reductions of only 8 percent. He told the commis-
sioners that further reductions would be costly in the end, es-
pecially in work done toward jail divisions.
"For every dollar cut it costs two dollars," he said. "I'm just
asking that we stay whole."
Last year, public defender programs successfully kept 3,000
people from going to jail, a 90 percent success rate, Dillinger
said.
He urged the commissioners not to ask for more cuts.
'This (jail diversion program) saves you money and it does
the right thing. It keeps people out of jail," he said.
Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark came close, meeting
the target at 14 percent. She said over the last three years, she


had cut her department's budget by 25 percent.
Clark told the commissioners that she would continue to do
everything she could to help with the need to reduce the bud-
get.
"But, I'm uneasy about the proposed budget," she said. "It is
cut to the bone, and if we find weve cut through the bone, I'll
be back here with hat in hand (asking for help)."
According to documents from John Woodruff, Pinellas Coun-
ty budget director, in total the constitutional officers need to
cut more than $11.2 million to meet the requested 15 percent
in reductions.
Budgets submitted by the independents also didn't offer any
relief to Pinellas County commissioners who may be forced to
ask the county administrator to make additional cuts to the
budgets of departments under their control.
The medical examiner was the only one to make the target.
The Office of Human Rights' budget included no reductions.
Business Technology Services came in with budget cuts of
10.4 percent; however, additional cuts of $947,000 need to be
made to meet the target. Human Resources cut its budget by
11 percent, which is $112,620 shy of the targeted amount.

Opening this week

Buzz, Woody return in 'Toy Story 3'; Brolin portrays DC's western antihero


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Toy Story 3'
Genre: Animated adventure/comedy
Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzen-
berger and Michael Keaton
Director: Lee Unkrich
Rated: G
'Toy Story 3" welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz
(voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back to the big screen
as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find
themselves in ... day care!
But the untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not
play nice, so it's all for one and one for all as plans for the great
escape get under way. More than a few new faces some plas-
tic, some plush -join the adventure, including iconic swinging
bachelor and Barbie's counterpart, Ken (voice of Michael
Keaton); a lederhosen-wearing thespian hedgehog named Mr.
Pricklepants (voice of Timothy Dalton); and a pink, strawberry-
scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear (voice of Ned
Beatty).

'Jonah Hex'
Genre: Adventure, western and adaptation
Cast: Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox, Michael
Fassbender and Michael Shannon
Director: Jimmy Hayward
Rated: PG-13
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty


hunter of last resort, a stoic, battle-hardened gunslinger who
can track down anyone ... and anything.
Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped
in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the
natural world and one on the "other side." A man fated to
wander alone, his sole human connection is with Lilah
(Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of
her own.
Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S.
military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for
freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down
and stop the sinister terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John
Malkovich), the man who killed Hex's family and mutilated
his face with a branding iron. Turnbull, who is gathering an
army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest
enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.
Based on the legendary character from the comic book se-
ries from DC Comics, "Jonah Hex" is an epic action adven-
ture about one man's personal quest for redemption against
the canvas of the battle between good and evil.
The following will open in limited release.

'Cyrus'
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei, Catherine
Keener and Matt Walsh
Director: Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

With John's social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about
to get remarried, a down on his luck divorcee finally meets
the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another
man in her life her son.
Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, the icono-
clastic filmmaking team behind Sundance Film Festival fa-
vorite 'The Puffy Chair," "Cyrus" takes an insightful, funny
and sometimes heartbreaking look at love and family in con-
temporary Los Angeles.
Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage,
John (John C. Reilly) has all but given up on romance. But at
the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie (Catherine
Keener), John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fiance

Tim (Matt Walsh) at a party. To his and everyone else's sur-
prise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous
and spirited Molly (Marisa Tomei).
Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off
quickly but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship
beyond John's house. Perplexed, he follows her home and dis-
covers the other man in Molly's life: her son, Cyrus (Jonah
Hill). A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom's
best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with
her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is defi-
nitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John.
Before long, the two are locked in a battle of wits for the
woman they both love and it appears only one man can be
left standing when it's over.
"Cyrus" will debut in select theaters New York and Los An-
geles June 18. It is expected to appear in local theaters July
16.

'I Am Love'
Genre: Foreign, drama and romance
Cast: Tilda Swinton, Alba Rohwacher, Marisa Berenson,
Maria Paiato and Edoardo Gabbriellini
Director: Luca Guadagnino
Rated: R
The film opens on a journey through the idyllic snow covered
streets of Milan in the run up to Christmas, and a stunning,
bourgeois mansion house: the home of the wealthy Recchi fam-
ily.
The families are gathering for a birthday dinner in honor of
the patriarchal figure of Edoardo Recchi Sr. Emma, the stylish
head of the household, oversees arrangements with the ser-
vants.
With his health in a poor state, Edoardo Sr. announces that
he will be handing the family business over to both his son
Tancredi and his grandson Edoardo Jr. (Edo), Emma and Tan-
credi's son. Gianluca, Edo's brother is left out of the deal.
When Edoardo Sr. dies, Tancredi decides that the best op-
tion for the Recchi family business is to sell it to the highest
bidder. Edo, who is hatching a plan to launch a restaurant, op-
poses the sale. He is desperate to cling to family tradition.
However, Tancredi is adamant and insists that they must look
to the future.
Emma, meanwhile, is starting to feel that her children have
their own lives in which she no longer has a part. Feeling
trapped in the Recchi residence, Emma's loneliness and isola-
tion is palpable. She initiates an affair with Edo's business
partner.

'The Killer
Inside Me'
Genre: Drama and thriller
Cast: Casey Affleck, Elias
Koteas, Jessica Alba, Kate
Hudson and John Goodman
Director: Michael Winter-
bottom
Not rated
Based on the legendary
novel by pulp writer Jim
Thompson, Michael Winter-
bottom's "The Killer Inside
Me" tells the story of hand-
some, charming, unassuming
small town sheriffs deputy
named Lou Ford (Casey Af-
fleck). The film takes place in
an idyllic West Texas town in
the early 1950s. As a lifelong
resident, Ford has difficulty
juggling his long-term girl-
friend Amy (Kate Hudson),
the prostitute named Joyce
(Jessica Alba) that he mistak-
enly falls for, and the socio-
pathic tendencies inside him.
In Thompson's savage, bleak,
blacker than noir universe
nothing is ever what it seems.

'Let It Rain'
Genre: Foreign, comedy
and drama
Cast: Jamel Debbouze,
Jean-Pierre Bacri, Agnes
Jaoui, Pascale Arbillot and
Guillaume DeTonquedec
Director: Agnes Jaoui
Not rated
From the celebrated direc-
tor of "Look at Me" and 'The
Taste of Others" Agnes
Jaoui, comes "Let It Rain,"
an endlessly charming and a
sharp-witted battle of the
sexes.
An audience favorite at the
New York Film Festival, this
charismatic comedy is un-
missable for fans of French


cinema everywhere. Agathe
Villanova (Jaoui) is a self-
centered, workaholic feminist
politician who, upon reluc-
tantly returning to her home
in the south of France to sort
out her mother's affairs,
runs for a local election.
Upon her arrival, Agathe
grudgingly agrees to take
part in a documentary being


made by the blundering duo
of Karim (Jamel Debbouze)
an aspiring filmmaker, and
self-professed "reporter"
Michel (Jaoui's regular writ-
ing partner Jean-Pierre
Bacri), on the subject of
"successful women." As
Agathe's life hilariously un-
ravels, the camera is there to
capture it all.

Giving birth a wide berth


Boaters, anglers, kayakers
and jet skiers may notice a
number of very slow-moving
dolphins at sea these days.
This behavior is natural.
It's unrelated to the oil seep-
ing toward us. Give these
slow cruisers plenty of room.
They are pregnant moms and
moms with new baby dol-
phins.
Slow cruising starts before
the new baby is born. Bot-
tlenose dolphins are pregnant
for a year. Our local dolphin
mothers begin to swim more
slowly about two months be-
fore giving birth. Most will
continue to show this slow
cruising behavior for at least
a couple of weeks after giving
birth, but the behavior be-
comes more exaggerated once
the calf is born. Cruising lets
mother rest from the physical
exertion of delivery. It lets the
rickety new baby dolphin
learn the essentials: swim-
ming, breathing air and suck-
ling milk without seawater.
Local dolphin mothers give
birth throughout the summer,
although they're biologically
capable of giving birth any
time of year. Their inconspic-
uous cruising has been hap-
pening all around us since
April, beginning about the
same time as the wretched
profusion of oil into our beau-
tiful inland sea.
To the casual eye, slow
cruisers just look like a
bunch of dolphins swimming
by; no reasonable person,
however, would say that you
can tell that a dolphin is preg-

nant because it swims slowly.
Instead, the increasing ten-
dency to "coast" among local
females Face, Tanks, Jagger,
Split, Courtney, SBT and Nip-
ple Face* is an expression of
life renewing itself.
One overcast April day, fe-
male members of the "Schnoz
tribe" (a rare kind of dolphin
harem) headed south very
slowly. Occasionally, one of
the girls roused herself to
glance at us over the water
surface. Otherwise, they prac-
tically hypnotized us with
their rhythmic breathing.
Recording their behavior as a
"snooze swim," we left to sur-
vey the remaining half of the
study area. On the return
route some time later, we
chuckled to see that they
were still there. Dolphins
"sleep in" like this rarely.
A different group of dol-
phins did the same thing on a
different day in a different
bay. They waited at an island,
swirling and ducking under
each other, inspecting the
boat, or playfully prodding the
kids. Once Q and Qball pulled
up from a distant hunting
spot, they all began a slow
ooze up a narrow channel be-
tween two small islands. It
took them an hour to go a
quarter mile. The dolphins
were relaxed (or relaxing).


Their rhythm of movement
was as mesmerizing as the
sound of crashing waves.
When they cut south, we
continued north. They were
still there three hours later;
such predictability is very
rare. I was hoping to witness
a dolphin birth that day, for
group members Face, Tanks
and Stick are potentially preg-
nant. No such luck.
As the waters warmed,
cruising became an art form.
One instant replay late in May
involved the Schnoz dolphins
milling near a bunch of rowdy
teenagers. Eventually they
trickled south. Behaving more
like a school of fish than dol-
phins, it took them two hours
to swim half a mile. I knew
that five of the dolphins in the
snoozing sextet were females
and potentially pregnant,
based on the time since their
last baby. Tanks weaned her
daughter Bet four years ago.
SBT, Split, Courtney, and
Jagger all lost new babies in
2008.
I didn't know if the last dol-
phin, Nipple Face, was male
or female.
As it turns out, Nipple Face
is a female because she had a
baby last weekend! Seasonal
visitor Cane is female, too, be-
cause she also had a baby.
The two newborns are the
first two babies of the season!
The two new babies have
survived their first week of
life, swimming in the protec-
tive company of the Schnoz
girls and Schnoz himself.
Bottlenose dolphins are

The season of bottlenose babies has begun. Dolphin calves take several weeks to learn the art of
being a dolphin, and must even learn how to swim. Give them a wide berth at sea.


long-lived (they can live over
50 years). Consequently, they
have a slow reproductive rate.
The average of giving birth
every three to four years
varies widely among individ-
ual females. For instance,
good old Tanks hasn't had a
baby for seven years. This
means that reduced popula-
tion numbers would not be
quickly replaced.
Pregnant females show dif-
ferent tendencies to doze
through the final months of
pregnancy. For example, sev-
eral 2008 moms didn't
snooze-and-cruise as inten-


sively as the new moms do
this year. This may be noth-
ing more than the general
variability of the behavior. But
it may also indicate that the
harsh 2009-2010 winter
drained dolphin resources,
which could have been espe-
cially tough on dolphins eat-
ing and heating for two.
Give all the slow cruising
animals you see this summer
a wide berth. May the new
generation grow quickly.
*I know. Nipple Face is a
strange name, but hear me
out. We use the silhouette of
dolphin dorsal fins to tell dol-


phins apart. One of the twelve
categories of silhouettes is the
"Nipple" category. The Nipple
dolphins are all the fins with
a hunk of tattered skin stick-
ing off the back edge. Nipple
Face not only has a "nipple"
of skin at the top of her dorsal
fin. She also has a wide notch
that looks like an open
mouth.

Leader, June 17, 2010


Summer is definitely upon
us; extremely hot tempera-
tures over the past week had
you wondering just where
your next breath was coming
from.
A good idea would be to
drink as much water as you
possibly can while you're out
there; I've always relied on a
gallon jug to help monitor
how much I'm drinking.
With that said, usually
when we start talking about
heat like this, we're also talk-
ing about how tough the
fishing is. This is not the
case.
Due to the extremely cold
winter we had this year, we


are just now hitting stride
for what is sure to be an
awesome summer for fish-
ing.
Big summer high tides
have provided for some ex-
cellent red fishing over the
last few days. Small oyster
bars along mangrove shore-
lines will hold plenty of fish
at high tide.
Finding one of these oyster
bars that has a bunch of
mullet hanging on it will put
you in the redfish. Cast live
pilchards suspended under-
neath a float right on top of
the bar, or work a weedless
gold spoon parallel to the
mangroves to keep you in the


Fish Tales

SWallerstein

strike zone longer.
Mangrove snapper fishing
is good inshore as well as off-
shore.
Target artificial reefs and
bridge pilings inside of
Tampa Bay as well as the
many reefs that range from 3
to 12 miles offshore of Pinel-
las County.
Downsizing your tackle is
key for fooling the wary
snappers; 20 to 30 pound


fluorocarbon leaders and
small number 1 hooks are
often needed to get bit.
Be sure to keep a fresh
chum block out at all times
as well as cutting baitfish
into small pieces and letting
them flow down the water
column to the fish.
Trout fishing has been
very good along our beaches.
Pier 60 as well as Redington
Pier are holding schools of
trout.
Cast soft plastic jigs rigged
on a quarter ounce jig head.
This will allow you to cover
the water column and locate
where the schools are hold-
ing, and best color lately has


been white.
These fish also will readily
hit a free-lined shrimp or a
frisky pilchard. Also don't
overlook any other structure
along the beach such as jet-
ties or artificial reefs; these
will all have trout on them as
well.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be
reached at capt.tyson@hot
mail.com. To get a fish photo
in the paper, send the photo
along with your name, when
and where it was caught to
editorial@TBNweekly.com or

papers, 9911 Seminole Blvd.,

Obituaries*


Walter C. SHAW
Walter Columbus Shaw Jr., 94, of Hart, Mich., went home to
be with the Lord, March 11, 2010. He was born in Chicago,
Ill. on September 14, 1915, to Walter and Caroline
(Ekelmann) Shaw. On May 21, 1938, he married Dorothy
Gooderl. Mr. Shaw was employed as a rate study engineer
with Illinois Bell Telephone Company until his retirement in
1975. Walter came from a family of carpenters in the
Midwest and his hands-on training in the building trades
competed with his desire for a higher education, which he
completed in law at the University of Chicago. These family
business interests moved him to Michigan as did Walter's
great love for the Hamlin Lake and Bass Lake regions
surrounding Ludington and Pentwater, Mich. Walter
volunteered his time extensively to major building projects
in each of the communities where he and Dorothy resided.
Walter was active in Lorimer Memorial Baptist Church in
Chicago, Village Church of Western Springs, First Baptist
Church of Pentwater, Lakewood United Methodist
Church in Clearwater, First United Methodist Church
of Fayetteville and the First United Methodist Church of
Newnan. Walter is survived by his children, Robert (Mary
Coan) Shaw of Lake Forest, IL, Grace (Steve) Galton of
Pasadena, CA, David (Sharon) Shaw of Fayetteville, GA and
Pentwater, and Scott (Lynne) Shaw of Doylestown, PA; 10
grandchildren, Suzie (Ed) Bohm, Laura (Dave) Nowacki,
Cindy Shaw, Rachel Shaw, Brad Galton, Lissy Galton,
Jeremy Galton, Nicholas Shaw, Kate (Jon) Amick,
Matthew Shaw; six great grandchildren, Lexi Bohm, Katie
Bohm, Ben Nowacki, John Nowacki, Micaela Nowacki,
Sarah Nowacki; one granddaughter-in-law, Shelby Galton.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Shaw, on
January 17, 2002, his grandson, Mark Galton, on December
23, 2002 and by his sister, Helen. Graveside services for Mr.
Shaw will be held at l:00pm on Sunday, June 20, 2010 at
Summit Township Cemetery in Ludington, Mich. Memorial
contributions in memory of Walter may be directed to
The Gideons International, PO. Box 14080, Nashville,

TN, 37214. The family has entrusted funeral arrangements

put shoes on the feet of barefoot children in Haiti and
around the world. The U.S. government estimates that
300 million children around the world don't own even a

For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
www.floridagulfresponse.com


My name is Darryl Willis and I'm responsible for overseeing BP's claims
process in the Gulf Coast. I was born and raised in Louisiana. At age 70,
my mother lost her home to Hurricane Katrina. Afterwards, she experienced
enormous frustration. So I know first hand that when tragedy strikes
on a scale like this, people need help without a lot of hassles.

How To File A Claim
To speed that help, BP's Claims Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week. The number is 1-800-440-0858. When someone calls, they'll find out
how to submit their claim and can schedule a face-to-face meeting with
one of our claims specialists. They can also file online at bp.com/claims.

Replacing Lost Monthly Income
Our focus has been on helping the fishermen, small businesses and
others who aren't able to work until the spill is cleaned up, by making
payments to replace their lost monthly income. These payments will
continue for as long as needed. When we talk, we'll help people
determine which documents they need. We will then be in touch in
four days or less and can issue them a check right on the spot.

So far, we have paid more than 19,000 claims, totaling more than $53 million.
We have nearly 700 people assigned to handle claims and 25 walk-in
claims offices in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. We have
promised to honor all legitimate claims and we will. We want all Americans
to know that these efforts will not come at any cost to taxpayers.

Our Responsibility
I volunteered for this assignment because this is my home. Doing this
right is important to me. My commitment is that we will keep you
informed, and we'll be here as long as it takes. We may not always be
perfect, but we will make this right.
