Dual vote provision
will not be changed
The Charter Review Commis-
sion will not recommend that the
state Legislature pass a special
act to allow voters to authorize the
repeal and replacement of the cur-
rent charter.
Representatives from the coun-
ty's cities turned out for public
hearings on June 14 and June 28
to express their concerns about
any repeal and replacement of the
county's charter, fearing possible
elimination of the dual vote provi-
sion. Pinellas County's charter re-
quires that charter changes be
approved by county voters as well
as by voters in municipalities that
would be affected.

Bar hours may be extended


By TOM GERMOND


LARGO Most city commissioners said July 6
they are in favor of extending the hour that alco-
holic beverages can be sold to 3 a.m. if Pinellas
County commissioners decide to do so.
Currently, alcoholic beverages can be sold up
until 2 a.m. in Largo; same goes for the county.
Assistant City Attorney Mary Hale said the
change would be in keeping with action taken by
Tampa, Hillsborough and St. Petersburg.
Mayor Pat Gerard said if the county allows alco-
holic beverages to be sold until 3 a.m., she would
be in favor of Largo doing likewise.
She agreed with written comments from Police
Chief John Carroll that people will get in their ve-
hicles and drive to Hillsborough County to take
advantage of the extra hour the bars are open.
"In the day, long time ago, I might have done
the same thing myself," she said. "It behooves us
not having those people on our streets, driving


"I don't think it's fair to the business
owners if the county enacts it, and
we don't move it to 3 o'clock."

Largo commissioner

around any farther than they need to."
Commissioner Harriet Crozier also said the city
should be in tune with what the county does.
"I don't want people from the beach drinking
until 2 and going through Largo to Tampa and
coming back through Largo to go (to the beach),"
she said.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said "it's repre-
hensive behavior" to hang out at a bar until 3
a.m., "but to each his own." However, he had no
objection to the change.


BP gets many claims

at Clearwater location


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER Fishermen came
who can't sell their fish, who are
pushed out of waters they used to
fish, and who are seeing anomalies
in the ecosystem that they have
never seen in their decades of fish-
ing. Charter boat captains came who
are losing their boats and business
from so many people canceling
reservations out of fear. Restaurant
owners, hotel owners, vacation
rental landlords.
More than 150 people with claims
flocked to Clearwater's new BP
claims center in just the first three
and a half days since it opened.
Before the Clearwater claims office
opened on June 28, the nearest
claims offices were in Naples and
Apalachicola. But with more than
1,800 claims filed in Central Florida


alone since the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill began, the company felt
there was a need for an office in the
area, said Chuck Newton, office
manager of the Clearwater claims of-
fice.
"We're here in a visible location so
that you can come in and have face-
to-face contact with someone and
develop a relationship with that per-
son so they can answer questions for
you and help process your claim,"
Newton said. "It's just frustrating to
deal with an 800 number. You talk
to a different person each time and
you feel like you're telling the same
story over and over again."
People should first get a claim
number by calling 1-800-440-0858
or visiting www.bp.com/claims. After
people get a number then they

Commissioner Gigi Arntzen had a different
view.
'We tell people we don't want you drinking and
driving and now we're giving you an extra hour to
drink and drive," she said.
Commissioner Woody Brown said a Largo busi-
ness owner told him that his business was down
significantly for a couple of weekends immediately
after St. Petersburg extended its drinking hours.
"I think it would help our establishments here,
and if the county is doing it, I don't see any reason
to not do it here," Brown said.
Commissioner Robert Murray agreed that the
city should take action if the county does. He said
he read an article about a bar in St. Petersburg
being open until 3 a.m. A bar across the street
that was in the unincorporated area had to close
at 2 a.m., creating all types of enforcement
problems, he said.

A little bit of rain wasn't going to keep Ayden Stoefen, 12, Largo, above, from having
fun at the 4th of July Celebration in Largo Central Park. He and several other children
took advantage of standing water from steady rainfall that fell in the area over the
weekend. Short of the record. A fireworks show, right, followed an attempt to break
the world record for the most people doing the twist at the same time. Because rain fell
until minutes before the starting time, a smaller crowd than anticipated turned out.
About 500 dancers were counted, far short of the record. A Largo official said that the
city will make another attempt at the record.

HOURS, from page 1


"I don't think it's fair to the
business owners if the county
enacts it, and we don't move it to
3 o'clock," he said.
Commissioner Mary Black said
the extra hour will put more peo-
ple at risk.
"If people are going to drive to
Tampa, maybe there are places
over there they can drink all
night," she said, "and are still
going to be on the roads."
Carroll wrote that the county-
wide policy is easiest to enforce
because it does not confuse the
public, the business owners and
police officers.
Although they didn't vote on
the issue, most commissioners
agreed by consensus that they
favored extending the hours al-
coholic beverages can be served
to 3 a.m. if the county takes
such action.

Commissioner moves
on term limits
Commissioners are in favor of
a proposed referendum that
would lengthen their terms to
four years. As in previous discus-
sions, they said that moving the
city's election dates to coincide
with countywide elections will
save the city $70,000 in election
costs.
Commissioners voted 4-3 in
favor of an option that would in-


crease terms from three to four
years beginning in 2010 for Seats
5 and 6; 2012 for Seats 3 and 4
and the mayor's seat; and 2014
for Seats 1 and 2.
Commissioner Mary Black said
the options presented say the
charter is being amended to in-
crease the terms of office, and
constituents have told her they
are against four-year terms.
"I just think the wording
should not be to increase the
terms to four years," she said.
"People are not happy with four-
year terms."
'Then they will certainly vote it
down if the majority of people are
unhappy with it," Gerard said.
Black said that the city is due
for a review of the charter in the
next couple of years, and the
issue could be taken up then.
Holmes said the people he has
heard from want to go to four-
year terms.
"Going to a two-year term is al-
most impossible ... the whole
commission would be up every
two years," he said.
Commissioners Brown, Crozier,
Holmes and Arntzen voted for the
option. Gerard, Murray and
Black dissented.
Gerard said her only objection
was that two commissioners
would have to run next year,
when no county elections are
scheduled. Consequently, the city
would not be saving $70,000
during that election cycle.


CLAIMS, from page 1


may either wait for a claim adjuster to contact them or they
may visit a claim office in person. If all their documentation is
in order, then the process of getting their first check could be as
short as 15 minutes to an hour, Newton said. Other people may
have to return with more supporting documents. The office first
began issuing checks on July 1.
Everyone waiting for service at the office on July 1 had a
story to tell. Scott Daggett, a commercial fisherman who lives in
St. Petersburg and fishes out of Madeira Beach, said he has
been affected by the spill because he used to lay his lines in
areas that are now covered in oil. He said due west from about
Tarpon Springs north, outside of 35 fathoms, where it is legal
for him to fish, is now all closed off due to oil, which makes it
harder for him to work.
'That closed area, I can't fish in, so now you have all of us
shifting further south and we're all jammed in one area and
fishing the same area, and it can only take so much," Daggett
said. "Because you have all these boats now. I traditionally fish
northwest of John's Pass, and now I fish southwest because it's
the only place to go because it's all closed where I usually fish.
So now I migrate south and we all get bunched together."
Daggett said that in a perfect world, he wishes the entire oil
problem would just go away, but in the meantime, he was at
the claims office to try to get compensated for his lost profits.
The public is scared of eating fish from the gulf, so people aren't
buying and the fish price is way down, he said. But that's not
even his biggest fear.
"(My biggest fear is) how much it's going to kill," Daggett said.
"Because you're putting that dispersment on it, making it sink,
but to me, that's hiding the problem. And once it starts rolling
across the bottom, you see those tar balls coming in, once that
touches something down there, it's dead. Sponge, coral. And
the fish that we fish for are all on the bottom. It's not surface
fish. It's all on the bottom. It's going to be years before you
know the extent of the damage."
He added that he has fished his entire life, and now the fish-
ermen are seeing things that they have never seen before. A
friend of his caught a yellow finned tuna in 160 feet of water,
which is not where they are supposed to live. He said he has
never heard of that happening in all 23 years of him fishing.
"And last trip ... the porpoises, they were running. I've never
seen them like this before. They were just running and run-
ning," Daggett said. 'You can see how things are changing. Like
surface fish where you usually don't see them you see them
out in deeper water. The way we all see it, they're having a
harder time breathing and they're just running. They're run-
ning from the oil. And to me, who knows where that oil is really
at when it's below the surface. I've seen sailfish in like 130 feet
of water, and I've never seen that before. And I saw so many
porpoises last trip, they were just running. They were cruising.
A lot of times they'll harass us, like when we're throwing back
the little fish, but they were just running away. More than I've
ever seen in my life. Pods of 30 and 40 just cruising all day
long."
He said he is no marine biologist, but the ecosystems are all
screwed up with deepwater fish in surface waters and sur-
facewater fish in deep waters.
"It's not their kind of habitat. It's like, 'Can't breathe, gotta
go,'" Daggett said.
Fisherman "Fisher" Price of Tarpon Springs was at the
claims office because he has had a hard time selling the fish
he's catching. The fish prices have dropped, he said, and
many people don't want to eat fish from the Gulf of Mexico,
and he is having a hard time paying bills.
"Most of our fish houses sell to restaurants, so people from


out of town are coming in and they call the restaurants and
ask, 'Where's your fish coming from?' And when they say it's
local, they say, 'Well, we're not going to eat that,"' Price said.
"So the restaurants start buying less, our fish house starts
buying less, and now we can't sell our fish."
Price said he has tried calling BP and Deepwater Horizon to
sign his boat up as a vessel of opportunity, but he hasn't had
luck with getting calls back.
Ken Lenard of Tampa works with Faybyrd Charters, and he
said the economy had already made it hard enough to get cus-
tomers, and now the oil spill has wiped out the business that
they did have. He sails out of Clearwater, but now his would-
be clients are scared and don't want to feel like they are wast-
ing the little money that they have. The waters where Lenard
takes his clients are not yet affected by the oil, but that does
not fix the perception people have.
"I tell them that I'm eating the fish I'm catching and I
haven't fallen over," Lenard said. "People are just scared.
Money is tight and they don't want to dish out good money to
go sit on the water all day and not be able to eat what they
catch."
In the long-term, however, Lenard said he is scared and
that the entire area is in big trouble. He said everyone hears
about what is happening on the surface of the water, but what
about what is happening with the undertows, and where is
that taking the oil? And, like Daggett, he has seen big changes
in the fish ecosystems.
"All the big fish and everything are moving in for cleaner,
fresher water," Lenard said. "You can go out there catching
mahi-mahi in 30 feet of water off of Pinellas Reef. And that's
unheard of. Blackfin tuna and stuff, you go out, and in 60 feet
of water there's not telling what you'll catch. So as far as that,
fishing is good right now if you can find people who want to
go. But we're in long-term trouble. I mean, it's gotta be killing
off all the bait fish, killing off all the bottom life, and eventual-
ly we're going to pay for it. I mean, I'm surprised they haven't
been talking about any big fish kills yet."
Douglas Irving of Belleair is a paleontologist who actually
worked last fall on the Deepwater Horizon rig that sunk. He
was at the center filing a claim for business interruption be-
cause ever since the spill, he hasn't been able to go on the oil
rigs where he would do his research.
"We were looking at one-celled fossils as the cuttings were
coming up from the oil site," Irving said. "It's a tool to deter-
mine whether they're close to the oil-bearing shale or whether
they've passed the layer of oil-bearing shale. That's where the
fossils are located."
Ever since the spill, Irving said he has been playing a lot of
tennis, as he has not been able to work. He was hoping to get
money from BP as some relief for his lost income. He worries
about the long-term and if the owners of the rigs will pull their
leases and send them to other countries, taking away all the
employment that goes with them.
Dave Katamay of Treasure Island is a fishing charter boat
captain of Reel Legend Charters, sailing out of John's Pass
and Panama City. He runs a 55-foot Hattaris and takes up to
six people at a time out fishing. He used to make $4,000 a
trip, charging $250 an hour, but now he's had to drop his
prices down to about $100 an hour, and last month alone he
said he had $15,000 in cancellations.
'The bank's going to take my boat because I can't afford it
because everyone keeps canceling," Katamay said. "I made
$198,000 last year, and this year I'm up to $42,000, and I
documented it all. And I'm losing all my s--.-- They are going
to shut my phone off, take my boat."
Katamay flipped through his schedule book for the next
week or two. An all-day $3,000-trip. Canceled. A $1,200-trip


for the Fourth of July. Canceled. A $2,500-trip with possibly
an extra $1,000. Canceled. A $3,500-trip, an $800-trip, an-
other $3,500-trip. All canceled.
The previous day, before the Clearwater office began issuing
checks, Katamay said he drove to Naples to pick up his first
$5,000 check to try to save his boat.
"I drove 350 miles to get the check so it would be in my
hand," Katamay said. "I deposited it in the bank, and I'm giv-
ing them the $5,000, the bank is calling me up saying,
'Where's the boat at?' I'm saying, 'I can't divulge that because
you're going to take that $5,000 I'm going to give you and then
take the boat anyway and I'll lose that $5,000 because I still
owe probably $13,000 total, not $5,000.' So I'm not going to
give them a nickel until I can pay them off."
Katamay said he has been so stressed out over the whole
situation that it has made him sick. He is going to visit a doc-
tor to try to get help, but the situation is dire. He claims he
has lost more than $100,000 so far this year. He has about
$200,000 of equity in his boat, but he owes about another
$200,000. The bank wanted the boat back about a week ago,
but he's trying to work with them. He says he has a serious
buyer, and he doesn't want to give up. He wants to sell his
boat and get a smaller boat. A 46-footer. He doesn't need the
big 55-footer anymore, anyway, he said, since he can't go out
as far now that the oil is all over the Gulf.
"My credit score is gone," Katamay said. "I can't pay my
bills. I have a whopping you don't even want to know now.
They look at it and say, 'Oh god, I'm sorry.' Now my whole
world is upside down."
Rocco Scalone of Largo is a fishing boat captain and retired
commercial fisherman. He wasn't seeking a claim at the office,
but he wanted to know what was being done about the prob-
lem. He spent six years in the U.S. Coast Guard and started
commercial fishing in 1986, he said. Every six to eight months
he would clean up wrecks, bring them offshore and sink them
to start growing ecosystems so he and future fishermen could
fish on them.
'The ones between Apalachicola and here out to about 120
feet of water and the other shore wrecks, I don't know if
they're getting coated in oil yet, but I know the offshore
wrecks have gotten whacked," Scalone said. "The offshore
wrecks in 400 feet of water or deeper that we placed out there
years ago, those are gone. They're full of oil."
Scalone sunk more than 30 wrecks over the years. He
cleaned them all out, scrubbed out all the oil and made sure
there were only biodegradable materials and fiberglass no
oils, resin, cleaners or anything harmful. He'd sink them and
then they started ecosystems. Algae begins to grow, then little
fish move in, then bigger and bigger fish. Every six months he
would go out and check on his wrecks. After six months, he
would begin catching bait fish. After another six months, he
would catch red groupers, navy black groupers, and the like.
Finally, after another six months, he'd start catching amber-
jacks and snapper.
"Fish are getting killed down there," Scalone said. "I'm
upset about what I've done over my lifetime to protect the
ocean and make it a viable fishery for the next generation of
fishermen. That's what these wrecks did."
Scalone is angry because all his life he followed the Coast
Guard's zero tolerance rule when it comes to leaking oil.
"What's happened now is that (BP has) ruined an entire in-
dustry," Scalone said. "I feel sorry for these guys (active fisher-
men.) I'm since retired, but in my lifetime, I've never spilled
more than a gallon total. I made sure my bilges are clean. My
wrecks were cleaned up, pressure washed out, all the oil out
of the engines, steering lines came out, there was nothing. Be-
cause that's an ecosystem. Things would live there."

Family gets warm welcome into historic house


By TOM GERMOND


LARGO When Sheila Gonzalez was a
little girl growing up in Puerto Rico, she
used to draw pictures of a yellow house.
She imagined living in a two-story struc-
ture, with large windows. Now, she said,
she's living her dream.
Through a city program, Gonzalez
bought a historic two-story rehabilitated
house in downtown Largo. She was pre-
sented the keys to the Perkins House,
which was built in 1926, at a city ceremo-
ny July 1.
Suffice it to say, Gonzalez was very
happy and expressed her appreciation to
city officials for helping her buy the home.
"You have to understand where I'm com-
ing from. It was an island and we don't
have houses like this one. Most of our
houses are pure cement," said Gonzalez, a
single mother with two children.
Matthew Anderson, city housing manag-
er, said about two years ago the city
bought the house, which was about a
block away from its new location at 161
Fifth St., primary for the land.
In most cases, old houses are demol-
ished, but some "city people said this
house needs to be saved," Anderson said.
They approached the housing division
about moving the house, but the task
wasn't going to be easy because it was
large. A nearby lot was vacant and for sale.
"We were very, very fortunate to be able
to buy this lot and move the house here,"
Anderson said.
The house was moved in January 2009.
An architect helped the city restore the
house as close as possible to its original
look, and it was put into the homestead
program to help families buy their first
house. The program has been used for
about 30 houses, Anderson said.
Raymond James, he said, "stepped up
and they are providing the first financing to
the Gonzalez family to buy this house. The
city holds the second financing."
"We're very, very happy that the Gonza-
lez family went through a long tedious
process and closed on the house two days


ago, and they're now the new owners," he
said.
Don Forehand, president of the Largo
Area Historical Society, said he appreciated
the work city officials did in preserving and
moving the house.
"The hopes of Largo Area Historical Soci-
ety are that this is just one of many build-
ings that we will be able to allow our
children, grandchildren and great-grand-
children to see so they know how we lived -
how our grandparents lived, how we grew
up here and have fond memories of the city
of Largo as I do," Forehand said.
The Perkins family moved to Largo from
Monroe County, Ga., in 1912 after a fire
destroyed their business. Jason Perkins,
Forehand said, worked in a mercantile
store for many years downtown and served
as the town manager from 1916-1918 and
again in 1923.
The family had the house built on First
Avenue Northwest and Fifth Street for a
total of $4,500, Forehand said.
The architecture is English style, he
said, and called "craftsmen."
"Craftsmen was a term for architecture
for people to be able to build their own
homes," Forehand said.
Jason Perkins died in 1951. Doug Har-
rell, the grandson of Jason Perkins, said
his parents got married in the house in
1938 and had four children.
"There was a lot of loving, living and hap-
piness in this place," Harrell said.
He said he can see all kinds of things
that were in the house, such as 30 years of
National Geographics.
"I hope you fill the shelves of these
rooms with your love, and your family
memories to make your home," he said to
Gonzalez.
City memos said the Perkins House,
prior to being moved, is a four-bedroom,
two-bath structure with about 1,000
square feet of original space and 120
square feet of rear additions.
When told by city officials that the
Perkins House is now the Gonzalez House,
Gonzalez had another idea:
"I think we can hyphenate it."

garden, seeds and other

with the keys to her new
Largo home, the Perkins
House.

Tough choices
Trying to cope with decreased revenues
spurred by the difficult economic times,
Clearwater Police Chief Tony Holloway has
come up with ways to cut $2.2 million from
his proposed budget for the next fiscal year.
The chief has recommended eliminating
the equivalent of 26.9 full-time jobs, mostly
through attrition and not filling vacant posi-
tions.
Such a substantial reduction may raise
eyebrows among constituents, but City
Council members and the chief have little
choice then to take drastic action with the
continued decrease in property values, more
than 43 percent over the past three years
countywide.
Other possible action includes sharing ve-
hicles, ending the take-home car program for
officers and changing the work schedule.
Certainly, the proposed cuts will be unpopu-
lar and may even cause some morale prob-
lems within the rank and file.
But the city, like many other local govern-
ments facing financial woes, has to make
tough choices, especially if council members
don't raise the city's millage rate.
Council members remain opposed to hav-
ing the sheriff take over the city's law en-
forcement services. However, they are
receptive to combining the two agencies'
communications centers. City officials
should aggressively pursue that option and
other proposals to eliminate the duplication


It's interesting how time
changes perception.
Not too many years ago, I
religiously looked forward to
Major League Baseball's an-
nual All-Star Game in a simi-
lar fashion to Christmas or a
summer vacation.
But as we get closer to next
week's MLB All-Star Game in
Anaheim, I look through the
lists of participating players
and I just can't get as excited
as I once did.
Don't get me wrong. The
players of today are probably
the best athletes ever to walk
onto a field. But charisma?
Non-existent.
Pro athletes today are more
like businessmen. And, quite
frankly, they should be. With
the salaries they command,
each player is almost a mini
version of a Fortune 1000
company. Unfortunately,
their personalities reflect it.
Not too long ago, ball play-
ers were more free spirits.
They were characters, for
lack of a better term in a fam-
ily newspaper.
Back in my previous life as
a newspaper sports writer, I
was fortunate to rub elbows
with one of those guys. He
was a somewhat quirky
young man who you might
remember.
Mark "The Bird" Fidrych,
the son of a Massachusetts
school administrator, picked
up his nickname due to his
uncanny resemblance to the
"Big Bird" character on the
Sesame Street television
show.
Two years after Fidrych
was drafted in the 10th


of services.
Time shall tell what the impact of the pro-
posed cuts will have on service. Certainly,
with what's on the table, city officials can
make a solid case that they are getting by
with less.

Largo officials, partnering with the state
and county, are being aggressive to bring
new businesses to the city.
They recently agreed to allocate $22,000
as an incentive to bring a business to Largo
that is expected to create 55 new positions
with an average wage of $57,897 over a
three-year period.
Through the program, the state's contri-
bution is $176,000 and the county's is
$22,000.
The move is a sound investment because
the company will bring in an estimated
$31,000 annually in tangible personal prop-
erty revenue from the capital investment of
$7.3 million in its first three years of opera-
tion.
Businesses that participate in the tax
credit program must show documentation
that they have created the jobs required and
have made their state tax payments.
Luring new business to an area, particu-
larly during a sputtering economy, is diffi-
cult. The $22,000 is a sound investment in a
program that in Largo and elsewhere has
produced results.

Editor:
I have been following the battle of the Pan-
handle beachfront owners with great interest.
Something which was front and center when
our county, DEP and municipalities success-
fully got sand in the '80s and '90s was amaz-
ingly absent in the recent news coverage: U.S.
Supreme Court decisions as early as 1842. At
that time it was established law that all land
over which navigable waters flow belongs to
the state. It was confirmed in 1845 and proba-
bly many times since.


The erosion control line, formerly the aver-
age line crossed by tidal flow, became that bor-
der in the eyes of jurists. Thanks to folks such
as Mike Sole, now director of the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection, U.S.
Rep. Bill Young, state Sen. Dennis Jones and
fine supporting county commissioners and lo-
cally elected officials, we got our public beach

Interview
"Coach Miffkin, talk about
your outfielders."
That comment is what
often passes for hard-nosed
interviewing in today's news
media. It is a softball ques-
tion, one that puts little pres-
sure on the interviewee.
It's a lazy Larry King ques-
tion no teeth in it. Re-
porters or talk show hosts
who specialize in softball
queries are usually popular
with public figures, especially
politicians, who do not want
to be crowded into a conver-
sation that has sharp edges
to it.
In contrast, a truly profes-
sional interviewer would ask,
"Coach, how do you justify
keeping Overholt in center
field when Swanstucker has
faster legs and a stronger
arm?" A pointed, specific
query like that one can elicit
genuine information, rather
than the free-wheeling ram-
bles most athletes, mayors
and movie stars are allowed
to get away with.
Another lazy-boy interview-
ing technique is the "How
much" or "how important"
question. "Mr. President, how
important is it that we stick
to the troop exit schedule in
Afghanistan?" A vague, open-
ended query like that is not
really a question. It's an invi-
tation to three minutes of
useless yadda-yadda. Such
questions deserve only a sar-
castic answer such as
"seven" or "quite."
Even less worthy of a civil
response is the blowhard in-
terviewer who needs three
hundred words to frame
his/her question. Brevity is
the soul of wit, and the same
thing goes for good interview-
ing. As far as I know, no one
has written the definitive
book on how to conduct news
interviews. Every interview -
its participants, topics, objec-
tives, setting is different. Al-
though some people may
regard interviewing as a
learned skill, it might also be
viewed as an art form.


,ws and inter,


ft Driver's Seat



Or as a weapon. Macho in-
terviewers such as Bill O'Reil-
ly specialize in putting guests
on the hot seat, peppering
them with tough questions
and then interrupting them
before they've had a chance
to complete an answer. Rude-
ness and embarrassment are
part of the deal.
Over the years, "Sixty Min-
utes" interviews have been
some of the best. Mike Wal-
lace & Co. are famous for
making their interviewees
squirm, but they've done it in
a civilized fashion.
If interviewers are ever as-
sembled in a Hall of Fame,
Barbara Walters will surely
be one of the first inductees.
Although she is famous for
lobbing softballs at her sub-
jects, she is also credited
with prying out admissions
and confessions that other
interviewers would fail to ob-
tain.
Possibly the best-informed
of today's big-time interview-
ers is Charlie Rose. Before he
talks to an author, he will
have read the author's latest
book. Same with film stars,
directors and screenwriters.
Charlie (or someone on his
staff) will have done extensive
research on the interviewee
and his/her history well be-
fore the show begins. Unfor-
tunately, Rose has a strong
tendency to bracket his ques-
tions with mini-monologues
about the subject at hand. I
don't know if this is a way of
showing off his knowledge or
just Charlie's method of
channeling the interview into
paths he believes are most
pertinent and useful.
If Tavis Smiley is not al-
ready regarded as one of our
best interviewers, he should
be. He's a serious man
(please don't ask me to define


viewers
that term), and his interviews
gravitate toward many of so-
ciety's pressing issues. He
also has a sense of humor.
His sudden belly laughs can
brighten up an otherwise
solemn dialogue with his
nightly guest.
Watching Rose and Smiley
late at night is a pleasant
way to steer clear of David
Letterman and the other al-
leged wits who have lowered
the interviewing standards
set many years ago by John-
ny Carson, Dick Cavett and
Steve Allen. Their custom
was to book guests who pos-
sessed functioning brains
and could utter several
meaningful sentences in a
row without collapsing. In-
stead of trying to upstage
their guests, these talk show
hosts gave them sufficient
time and attention to speak
sensible English rather than
the cheap wise-cracks we
hear today on the Leno, Let-
terman and Kimmel shows.
But I guess quick-and-
dirty interviews are what
many of today's TV watchers
prefer. The classic examples
of superficial, nearly useless
interviews are the ones given
during or after athletic con-
tests. Each network has at
least one attractive, young
and usually blonde female re-
porter who stations herself
on the sidelines awaiting her
thirty seconds of camera
time. At halftime or as the
game ends, the reporter
rushes up to a prominent
player, shoves a microphone
at him and asks, "Rocky, how
did you feel when you kicked
that field goal?" Rocky, who
is near exhaustion and can
barely remember his own
name, mumbles, "Well, we
saw the oppatoonitee,
y'know, and we came here to
play physical." Which pretty
well gives us, the viewers,
about as much information
as we're willing or able to
handle at the moment.

' Flat-out wrong'


Here's hoping the backlash
against anonymous blogging
on news media websites con-
tinues.
At least two esteemed jour-
nalists have recently assailed
the practice, Miami Herald
columnist Leonard Pitts and
Rem Reider, the American
Journalism Review's editor.
Pitts doesn't mince words
about his position on the
issue. To wit:
Anonymous online forums
"have become havens for a
level crudity, bigotry, mean-
ness and plain nastiness that
shocks the tattered remnants
of our propriety."
Agreed. Respectable news-
papers require letters to the
editor to be signed by their au-
thors. Editors believe that


writers should be held respon-
sible for their comments
whether they're attacking a
coach, the president or a slick
oil company.
Can't count how many
times I've discarded an un-
signed letter. I recall that even
as I was just beginning my ca-
reer as editor of a community
college newspaper, a cheer-
leader asked me to publish an
anonymous letter from her
complaining about the lack of
attendance at the college's
basketball games. I told her I
couldn't publish the letter un-
less she signed it. She re-
fused.

Louder is better?
Re: Bob Driver's column, June 10.
Editor:
Bob Driver lambasted today's popular music with inaudible
lyrics clashing with blasting instruments that words are lost in
the band's shrillness.
Apparently, louder is better in today's rock/heavy metal,
ear-splitting racket much of which emanates not only from
concerts and radio stations but from vehicles that sounds as if
they are about to explode.
Most of us have been trapped in this situation at the traffic
light next to those inconsiderate music lovers and the pound-
ing vibrations even with their windows up. We have an idiot in
our neighborhood who can be heard a block away and as he
passes our house, one can discern the boom box beat while
the walls vibrate!
High time for Seminole and Pinellas County to enact a strict
noise ordinance, and at the same time, give these people a
mandatory hearing test along with a stiff fine.
I'm one of Bob Driver's mossbacks (as he says) from the '40s

Reider wrote in a recent col-
umn the anonymous forums
on websites is "flat-out
wrong."
"... when they (news outlets)

Bravo. I can't think of any
compelling reason to allow
anonymous blogging. Journal-
ists also shy away from allow-
ing anonymous sources to
voice their opinions in routine
news stories. Again, its all
about accountability. Allowing
unnamed sources free rein to
criticize anything or anybody
they want is just a waste of
space and only raises ques-
tions, such as, is the source
an authority on the issue dis-
cussed? Does he or she have a
vendetta?
More from Pitts: "As any

say or do, they will often say

A couple of years ago, I at-
tended a seminar on the fu-
ture of the Internet. The
presenter encouraged editors
and publishers to interact
with readers through blogging.
She said court rulings have
provided protection to the
media from libel suits spurred
by bloggers' false allegations or
other defamatory comments.
I don't buy it. In time, I be-

seeking relief in court against
anonymous blogging is a
growing trend.


But why would a newspa-

Charter Review Commission stirs controversy


By SUZETTE PORTER


CLEARWATER Pinellas County's municipalities can rest
easy. The Charter Review Commission will not be recom-
mending any major changes.
In particular, it will not recommend that the state Legisla-
ture pass a special act to allow voters to authorize the repeal
and replacement of the current charter.
Representatives from the county's cities turned out for
public hearings on June 14 and June 28 to express their
concerns about any repeal and replacement of the county's
charter, fearing possible elimination of the dual vote provi-
sion.
Pinellas County's charter requires that charter changes be
approved by county voters as well as by voters in municipali-
ties that would be affected. Municipal leaders said any
change to that system would threaten their home rule.
They voiced opposition to what they described as a divisive
measure. They asked the CRC to remember the legal battle
that occurred when the previous CRC proposed a change to
the dual vote rule.
Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard said June 28 that he and
others were concerned about the repeal and replace recom-
mendation and the potential for a battle between the cities.
He said he didn't think the county's charter needed a major
revamp.
"Our (county) charter is fine," he said.
Hibbard and others said in light of today's challenges, all
local governments needed to work together to find solutions.
He cited current budgetary problems and the oil spill as com-
mon problems that needed a unified solution.
"We need to keep our eye on the ball," he said.
Most speakers, including mayors, city council members
and chamber representatives from large and small municipal-
ities, echoed much of what Hibbard said. Some spoke of pres-
sure from county leaders and the addition of the
recommendation at "such a late date."
CRC members disputed the claim that county leaders had


Water restrictions

relaxed by state


By SUZETTE PORTER


Above-average rainfall this
winter resulted in enough
improvements in aquifer
and river levels so that the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District's Gov-
erning Board voted June 29
to let modified Phase II
shortage restrictions to ex-
pire.
According to a press re-
lease, local governments
now have the option of re-
turning to the water dis-
trict's twice-per-week,
year-round water conserva-
tion methods, effective July
1.
Terrie Grace, who is in
charge of enforcement of
Pinellas County Utilities
water restrictions, said
Pinellas County will contin-
ue the once-a-week watering
restrictions for residents
who use potable (drinking)
water for irrigation. However,
easing of restrictions allow
residents who use wells,
lakes or ponds to return to a
twice-a-week schedule.
Grace said the schedule
for people using potable
water will remain the same
as it has been since Decem-
ber 2001. People who use
reclaimed water also should
continue to conserve as
much as possible.
However, people who
water using wells, lakes or
ponds now must follow
SWFWMD's water rules,
which allow for watering
twice a week, Grace said.
As of July 1, addresses
with even numbers can
water on Thursday and Sat-
urday and odd numbers can
water on Wednesday and
Saturday. Residents with a
mixed or no address can
water on Tuesday and Fri-
day.
Another bonus for users
of nonpotable water sources
is that they can water be-
tween the hours of 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m. People who use
potable water must continue


to water only before 8 a.m.
and after 6 p.m.
Variations in the rules still
apply for properties of more
than 2 acres, as well as for
new plantings and other
special circumstances.
A complete schedule of
watering restrictions is avail-
able at www.Pinellascoun
ty.org, or call the Utilities
Department at 464-4000.
Grace said residents who
put in new plantings can
water every day for 30 days,
during the establishment pe-
riod. After the first 30 days,
they can water three days a
week: even-numbered ad-
dresses on Tuesday, Thurs-
day and Saturday, and
odd-numbered addresses
may water on Monday,
Wednesday and Saturday.


influenced their decision or that the recommendation was
last minute.
County Commissioner Ken Welch said after hearing con-
cerns during the June 14 public hearing, he asked the CRC
attorney, Susan Churuti, to amend the language in the rec-
ommendation to make it clear that there was no intent to re-
move the dual vote.
'There seems to be some assumption that the CRC is going
after the dual vote," he said.
He said the intent had been to make changes to allow the
county to make decisions that concerned its charter without
having to go to the state for approval.
"No city has to do that," he said.
Several of the CRC members who are not elected officials
said they did not understand the city's need for a dual vote or
the threat to home rule. They said the purpose of the recom-
mendation was to make it possible for a future CRC to put
the matter of repealing and replacing the charter on the bal-
lot without having to go to the state for approval.

public-at-large, said he was concerned that all the discussion
centered on what the county can do or what the cities can do,
but no talk about the people.
"Really it is the people who are deciding," he said. "People
of this county have the right to make decisions. Cities versus
the county where's the people in this?"
CRC member Deborah Kynes, also representing the public-
at-large, said repeal and replace should not be divisive.
"It's not divisive," she said. "It's visionary and looking to-
ward the future."
She said the recommendation is only to authorize future
CRC's to look at the possibility of repealing and replacing the
charter at a time when it no longer meets the needs of the
people.
Ed Hooper, CRC member representing the Pinellas Legisla-
tive Delegation, said he doubted that the matter would even
be considered by the Legislature, especially with so many
pressing matters on the state's agenda.
The CRC voted against the amendments put forth by Welch
before voting against the recommendation as a whole.

Ringo Starr leads All Starr Band to Ruth Eckerd


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

CLEARWATER Ringo Starr has as-
sembled his 11th All Starr Band and is
hitting the road this summer with more
than two dozen concerts planned.
The tour will hit the Tampa Bay area
Tuesday, July 13, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd
Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road.
Reserved tickets are $150, $95, $75
and $49 and are available at the Ruth
Eckerd Hall ticket office, by calling 791-
7400 or online at www.rutheckerdhall.
com or www.ticketmaster.com.
For this outing, Starr has recruited
veterans Edgar Winter, Gary Wright and
Gregg Bissonette for the All Starr Band.
Newcomers include Rick Derringer,
Richard Page and Wally Palmar.
Starr's own background is music in-
dustry history.
In 1959, Starr hooked up with the
Raving Texans, which later became
Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. Then,
in 1962, while playing a summer gig
with Rory, the drummer was asked to
join the Beatles.
While his association with the world's
most popular band earned him im-


mense fame, it was only the beginning
of a long and prosperous career.
In 1970, Starr put out his first solo
record, "Sentimental Journey." The fol-
lowing year, he released "Beacoups of
Blues," a country and western album
he recorded over two days in Nashville.
That same year, the Beatles split up.
Starr was the first solo Beatle to
score seven consecutive Top 10 singles
starting with the release of "It Don't
Come Easy." His second hit single,
"Back Off Boogaloo" followed in 1972.
In 1973, the self-titled "Ringo" hit
stores, yielding three Top 10 singles, in-
cluding "Photograph" and "You're Six-
teen."
Earlier this year, Starr released his
15th studio album, "Y Not." "Walk With
You," the first single from the album,
features shared vocals with former Bea-
tles bandmate Paul McCartney. The
album also includes collaborations with
a number of other artists, such as Ben
Harper, Richard Marx and Joe Walsh.

The All Starr Band
Starr has gathered together some ex-
ceptional talent for the 11th incarnation

IM -* I


of the All Starr Band.
Edgar Winter, known best for leading
The Edgar Winter Group in the 1970s, is
a multi-instrumentalist, playing key-
boards, saxophone and percussion. He
shifts smoothly from jazz to blues to
rock. His 1972 album 'They Only Come
Out at Night" boasted a top-selling hit,
the instrumental "Frankenstein." He
toured with Starr previously in 2006 and
2008.
Gary Wright joined the band Spooky
Tooth as singer and keyboardist in 1967.
After that band broke up in 1974, Wright
continued his solo career and recorded
"Dream Weaver," a single which peaked
at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 100 in
1976.
Guitarist and vocalist Rick Derringer
was only 17 when his band The McCoys
released the No. 1 hit "Hang on Sloopy"
in 1965. He went on to record with both
The Edgar Winter Group and the band
led by Edgar's brother, Johnny Winter. In
1973, Derringer scored a solo hit with
"Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo."
The former lead singer of the U.S.

Clearwater
"The Kitchen Witches," by Caroline
Smith, July 15 through Sept. 5, at Early Bird
Dinner Theatre, presented at the Italian-Amer-
ican Club, 200 S. McMullen-Booth Road.
Seating for performances Thursday through
Sunday is 4 p.m. Seating for matinees Thurs-
day and Saturday is 11 a.m. Admission is
$29.90 a person. Call 446-5898 or visit
www.earlybirddinnertheatre.com.
Marc Cohn, Friday, July 16, 7:30 p.m., at
Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets
start at $39. Call 791-7400 or visit
www.rutheckerdhall.com. In the years that
preceded the release of his new Decca album
"Join the Parade," Cohn passed through sever-
al life-changing events. These events are what
enabled him to reconnect with his songwriting
muse, and they are in large part, what make
"Join the Parade" an artistic, insightful and
soulful statement. Despite his time away from
the recording studio, the acclaimed
singer/songwriter, winner of the 1991 Gram-
my Award for Best New Artist, has continued
to perform live and his audiences have re-
mained steadfast. He endured the pain of di-
vorce, but in 2002 he married news anchor
Elizabeth Vargas. He struggled with writer's
block and sought to break through it with a
month-long tour in the summer of 2005. The
gigs went great until the night of Aug. 7, 2005.


That's when Cohn was shot in the head dur-
ing a random attempted carjacking after a
concert in Denver. Even though the bullet was
lodged near his left temple, Cohn never lost
consciousness and walked out of the hospital
the next day. Three weeks later, while recover-
ing at home in New York from post-traumatic
stress disorder, Cohn watched the city of New
Orleans destroyed by flooding in the aftermath
of Hurri-cane Katrina. Out of all this, and all
that came before, comes "Join the Parade," a
recording that is being called Cohn's most ac-
complished and compelling album to date.
Cohn has translated some of his most com-
plex and private emotions into lyrical song-po-
etry and then set those words to music of
remarkable depth, toughness, and complexity.
In doing so, Cohn has created a work that is
certain to touch a universal chord of memory
and feeling.
Crowded House, Wednesday, July 28, 8
p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-

Opening this week

Carell plans a lunar theft in 'Despicable Me' while Brody becomes the prey of 'Predators'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Despicable Me'
Genre: Comedy, family and
animated
Cast: Steve Carell, Jason
Segel, Kristen Wiig, Will Ar-
nett and Danny McBride
Director: Chris Renaud and
Pierre Coffin
Rated: PG
In a happy suburban
neighborhood surrounded by
white picket fences and flow-
ering rose bushes sits a black
house with a dead lawn.
Unbeknownst to the neigh-
bors, hidden deep beneath
this home is a vast secret
hideout. Surrounded by an
army of mischievous little
minions, Gru (Steve Carell) is
planning the biggest heist in
the history of the world. He is
going to steal the moon.
Gru delights in all things
wicked. Armed with his arse-
nal of shrink rays, freeze rays
and battle-ready vehicles for
land and air, he vanquishes
all who stand in his way.
That is, until the day he en-
counters the immense will of
three little orphaned girls who
look at him and see some-
thing that no one else has
ever seen: a potential Dad.

'Predators'
Genre: Action and science
fiction
Cast: Adrien Brody, Alice
Braga, Louis Ozawa
Changchien, Danny Trejo, To-
pher Grace, Laurence Fish-
burne and Walton Goggins
Director: Nimrod Antal
Rated: R
Robert Rodriguez presents
a bold new chapter in the


Predator universe, "Preda-
tors," shot on location under
Rodriguez's creative auspices
at the filmmaker's Austin-
based Troublemaker Studios
and directed by Nimrod Antal.
The film stars Adrien Brody
as Royce, a mercenary who
reluctantly leads a group of
elite warriors who come to re-
alize they've been brought to-
gether on an alien planet ...
as prey. With the exception of
a disgraced physician, they
are all cold-blooded killers -
mercenaries, Yakuza, con-
victs, death squad members -
human predators that are
now being systemically hunt-
ed and eliminated by a new
breed of alien Predators.

The following will open in
limited release. It may be sev-
eral weeks before these films
appear in local movie theaters.

'The Kids Are
All Right'
Genre: Drama
Cast: Julianne Moore, An-
nette Bening, Mark Ruffalo,
Mia Wasikowska and Josh
Hutcherson
Director: Lisa Cholodenko
Rated: R
The most talked-about
movie at the 2010 Sundance
Film Festival, and the winner
of the Teddy Award for Best
Feature Film at the 2010
Berlin International Film Fes-
tival, "The Kids Are All Right"
combines comedic surprise
with poignant emotional truth
in a funny, vibrant, and richly
drawn portrait of a modern
family.
Nic (Annette Bening) and
Jules (Julianne Moore) are
married and share a cozy sub-
urban Southern California
home with their teenage chil-
dren, Joni and Laser (Mia
Wasikowska and Josh Hutch-


person Nic and Jules or,
when referred to jointly by
Joni, "Moms" gave birth to
and raised their children, and
built a family life for the four of
them. As Joni prepares to
leave for college, 15-year-old
Laser presses her for a big
favor. He wants Joni, now 18,
to help him find their biologi-
cal father; the two teenagers
were conceived by artificial in-
semination.
Against her better judg-
ment, Joni honors her broth-
er's request and manages to
make contact with "bio-dad"
Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an easy-
going restaurateur. The kids
find themselves drawn to the
confirmed bachelor's footloose
style especially in contrast to
Nic, a principled doctor who
has long established their
house rules.
Jules, who has been looking
to start a new career in land-
scaping, also strikes up a rap-
port with Paul. As Paul comes
into the lives of the forthright
four, an unexpected new
chapter begins for them as
family ties are defined, re-de-
fined, and then re-re-defined.

'[REC] 2'
Genre: Foreign, horror and
thriller
Cast: Manuela Velasco, Fer-
ran Terraza, Ariel Casas,
David Vert and Alejandro
Casaseca
Director: Jaume Balaguer6
and Paco Plaza
Rated: R
The highly anticipated se-
quel to one of the scariest
films of all time, "[REC] 2"
picks up 15 minutes from
where the original film left off,
taking the audience back into
the quarantined apartment
building where a terrifying
virus has run rampant, turn-
ing the occupants into mind-


lessly violent, raging beasts.
A heavily armed SWAT
team and a mysterious gov-
ernment official are sent in to
assess and attempt to neu-
tralize the situation. What
they find inside lies beyond
the scope of medical science -
a demonic nightmare of bibli-
cal proportions more terrifying
than they could have possibly
imagined. Above all it must be
contained, before it escapes to
wreak havoc on the unsus-
pecting world outside.

STARR, from page 11
band Mr. Mister, Richard Page, joins the All
Starr Band for the first time. Mr. Mis
ter shot to the top of the charts in 1985 with
the album "Welcome to the Real World" which
included the hit singles "Broken Wings" and
"Kyrie."
Part of the original lineup of the The Romantics,
Wally Palmar plays rhythm guitar, harmonica
and sings lead vocals. With The Romantics, Pal-
mar wrote and recorded "What I Like About You"
in 1979.
Gregg Bissonette, an American drummer, has
played in a number of diverse bands including the
Maynard Ferguson Big Band, Toto and Santana.
He has backed Starr on solo tours and was previ-
ously a member of the All Starr Band in 2008.
Fans can expect to hear a jukebox worth of
classics including Starr's "It Don't Come Easy,"
"Photograph," "Little Help From My Friends," "Yel-
low Submarine" and "Octopus's Garden" as well


as selections from his latest release "Y Not." As
usual, Starr will alternate with hits from the All
Starr Band members such as "Free Ride,"
"Frankenstein," "Broken Wings," "Kyrie," "Hang on
Sloopy," "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo," "Dream
Weaver," 'Talking In Your Sleep" and "What I Like
About You."

Peace and Love
While on tour, the drummer extraordinaire
will mark quite a milestone.
According to the bandleader's Web site,
Starr will turn 70 on July 7. He plans to cele-
brate his birthday in New York City and, at
noon, he will be joined by family, friends and
fans all together in one simple salute: "Peace
and Love." The Peace and Love Celebrations
began in 2008 when Starr encouraged every-
one everywhere to say "peace and love" at
noon, local time, on July 7. This year, the
Hard Rock Cafe International will support the
celebrations with events around the world.

A fast moving storm last
week reminded us that we
are in an active time of the
year; these storms can be a
thousand plus miles away
and still affect our weather.
Before our typical summer
weather pattern was disrupt-
ed, we had calm beach con-
ditions all week providing
some fantastic tarpon fishing
just before this last full
moon.
Tarpon fishing should get
good again this week, as long


as the beaches stay nice and
calm. Many of the fish will be
migrating back north
through the area along all of
our beaches.
A large population of fish
also will push their way up
inside of Tampa Bay, these
fish become more stationary
rather than migratory, as
they'll often find an area with
some depth and a good con-
centration of bait and stay
there for a few weeks. Target
these fish with sinking plugs

Morton Plant laboratory receives
re-accreditation
CLEARWATER The Morton Plant Hospital echocardiogra-
phy laboratory recently received a full three year re-accredita-
tion from the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of
Echocardiography Laboratories.
The ICAEL, a nonprofit organization, was established with
the support of the American Society of Echocardiography, the
American College of Cardiology and the Society of Pediatric
Echocardiography to provide a peer review mechanism to en-
courage and recognize the provision of quality echocardio-
graphic diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary
accreditation.
Morton Plant was granted accreditation after participating in
the voluntary process. Accreditation status signifies that the
hospital's echocardiography laboratory has been reviewed by
an independent agency which recognizes the laboratory's com-
mitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease.
Morton Plant's laboratory is one of a growing number of
echocardiography laboratories to be recognized for its commit-
ment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality di-
agnostic testing.

Clearwater Cardiovascular
receives accreditation
CLEARWATER Clearwater Cardiovascular and Interven-
tional Consultants, Cardiovascular Computed Tomography
Laboratory, recently was granted accreditation in the areas of
Coronary Calcium Scoring, Cardiovascular CTA and Other CTA
by the ICACTL.
The laboratory is one of the first 500 CT laboratories in the
United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to be so recognized for
its commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of
quality diagnostic testing. Participation in the accreditation
process is voluntary, indicating a facility's willingness to meet
ICACTL's nationally recognized, intersocietal standards for the
performance of quality CT procedures.
Laboratories applying for accreditation are required to docu-
ment detailed information about all operational and technical
components and submit protocols and case studies for review


by a panel of experts.

Horoscopes
July 8, 2010


Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Your message is loud
and clear, but unfortu-
nately, a friend just does
not get it. Leave it be,
Capricorn. You have a
more pressing matter to
contend with.
Aquarius
January 20 February 18
When the boss is away,
the mice will play. Avoid
l ii i,' iI, i. Aquarius, or
you just might get caught.
A loved one's erratic be-
havior is a call for help.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
Listen to your inner
voice, and it will lead you
to a new endeavor. A mix-
up in communication
causes quite the commo-
tion at work. Laugh it off,
Pisces.
Aries
March 21 April 19
Many changes are in
store, and for the best re-
sults, you should let
everyone in on the matter,
Aries. The more prepared
they are, the better they
will receive what's coming.
Taurus
April 20 May 20
What a pity, Taurus.
Your loss is someone
else's gain. Chalk it up to
inexperience and learn
from your mistake. A spe-
cial occasion requires
thinking outside of the
box.
Gemini
May 21 June 21
Looking to shine? This
is your week. Gemini. You
can do no wrong. A new
face comes into the fold.
Enjoy the start of what
will be a beautiful friend-
ship.


Cancer
June 22 July 22
Feeling like the world
is against you? Not any-
more, Cancer. The tide is
turning in your favor. A
summer pastime fills the
weekend with family,
food and fun.
Leo
July 23 August 22
Unlike some of your
friends, you do not have
money to burn, and
there's no use in pre-
tending you do. Be hon-
est, Leo, and your
friends will respect you
for it.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
A torrid affair comes
to an abrupt end. Be a
sounding board, not a
punching bag, Virgo. A
coworker is feeling left
out. Do your best to
bring them into the fold.
Libra
September 23 October 22
Get ready to party,
Libra. Your social life is
about to take off. A com-
puter issue makes the
completion of a report
difficult. Grin and bear it.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
Some things are better
left unsaid. Divulge only
what is necessary, Scor-
pio, and leave your audi-
ence to read between the
lines. An e-mail raises
an important question.
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You've been burning
the candle at both ends,
and it is starting to
show. Give up one or the
other, or pare down your
schedule considerably,
Sagittarius.

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

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.

Independent Claims Compensation Fund
Working with the President, we've created a $20 billion fund to satisfy
all legitimate claims. This fund will be administered by a highly respected
independent overseer and will not come at any cost to taxpayers.

How To File A Claim
To speed 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. After meeting, we will
be in touch in four days or less and can issue them a check right on
the spot. 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.

We have already paid tens of thousands of claims amounting to
more than $100 million. We have recently simplified and accelerated
the payment of commercial large loss claims. Over one thousand
people are here to help in 33 walk-in claims offices in the Gulf. We
have promised to honor all legitimate claims and we will.

Our Responsibility
The Gulf 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.
