Board vacancies
discussed
LARGO City commissioners
may be adding a couple of con-
tractors to their advisory boards
rather than establish a new panel
to make recommendations on
construction projects.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes
suggested July 6, as he has in
previous meetings, that the con-
struction board be formed. He has
expressed concern about the costs
of the Highland Recreation Center
and Community Center.
"It's tantamount to a second
opinion before somebody cuts into
you," Holmes said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said it's hard
for the city to fill every board. She
said boards cost staff time, and
they have code enforcement, com-
munity development, planning
boards.
'We are talking about Commu-
nity Development Department,"
she said. "One more time we are
putting another committee on
them."
Holmes said he knows retired
contractors who live in Largo who
would be willing to serve on
boards. Holmes was advised to
ask them to apply to some of the
boards.
'That will work," Holmes said.

City's golf course under scrutiny


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO At least two city commissioners say the
city has fallen short in its efforts to promote the
city's golf course.
Commissioners July 13 discussed a proposed
marketing plan designed to increase play and rev-
enue at the Largo Municipal Golf Course, which is
on Vonn Road.
When the city renovated the golf course in 2007,
city officials talked about promoting the golf
course, Commissioner Gigi Arntzen said.
"I know you did some promotion," she said. "I'm
disappointed that 90 percent of things you are
going to do, you did not do three years ago."
She said she thinks the golf course could be out
of the financial difficulties it's been facing had the
golf course been promoted better.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said she has
heard "some negative rumbling about the golf
course." She questioned how long has it been be-


Woman helps

others cope with

pregnancy loss

By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER After a few boys already in the house-
hold, Tanya LeClair was ecstatic when her ultrasound
showed that she was having a girl this time. She set out
straight away to buy the pinkest and frilliest and poufiest
things she could find and began setting up the baby's
room.
And then came the seven-month checkup.
The doctors learned that the baby had no heartbeat and
LeClair would have to check into the hospital either that
night or the next morning to deliver her stillborn baby.
The experience that followed would lead to guilt, heart-
break, and the determination that things can be done dif-
ferently. Other women can and should have better
experiences, LeClair thought, so she founded Silent Losses,
a pregnancy loss support group that not only helps women
heal after the loss of a child, but it can help parents make
informed decisions and beautiful memories during the
miscarriage or stillbirth itself.

Sleepless decisions and guilt
LeClair and her husband decided they would check into
the hospital that very night for labor. She said the hospital
was nice enough to check three more times for her before
she would consent to the procedure. Then, it was 12 1/2
hours of labor, by which time she had been up for about
See PREGNANCY, page 4


fore a city official has been before the commission
with a marketing plan.
"I've been wondering what you guys have been
doing," she said, "and what I have been hearing
has not been positive from people about their tax
dollars being spent to keep the golf course run-
ning."
Amtzen questioned if the parks department has
money in the budget to handle the additional mar-
keting.
City Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan
Byrne said marketing is challenging because the
golf course is a 364-day-a-year operation with a
small staff.
"We have more ideas than we have staff or
money; there is no doubt about that," she said.
Under the marketing plan, city officials plan to
offer discounts, such as for residents with a city
recreation card. They also plan to offer discounts
for golfers on their next round if they book their tee
times when they finish playing.


They also hope to target new audiences, such as
partnering with companies' health and wellness
programs and offering green fee specials to new
chamber members.
The golf course is classified as an 18-hole execu-
tive golf course. Golf Course Manager Don Bran-
non said the disadvantage the course has is that it
can't attract young golfers who can "never use all
the clubs in their bags."
'We're not long enough," he said.
He said what city officials will try to sell to the
"championship golfers ... is that about 75 percent
of the golf you play takes place from 100 yards in."
"Our course is good for someone who is trying to
improve his short game," he said.
But the biggest challenge is the weather, city offi-
cials said.
'We do over 60 percent of our business in the
few months of winter," Byrne said. 'When we have
a cold winter like we did this year, one of the cold-
est on record, it dramatically affects our business."

City officials consider tobacco-free hiring policy


By TOM GERMOND
LARGO City officials are moving toward being the first of
the large municipalities in Pinellas County to establish a to-
bacco-free hiring policy.
They say that hiring people who don't smoke is a proactive
policy, affecting future medical claims.
"In this day and age when we are looking at managing our
health-care claims, we thought that it would be important at
this point in time to propose this tobacco-free hiring policy,"
said Susan Sinz, Largo human resources director, at a July 6
commission meeting.
She pointed out that smoking causes a loss in employee
productivity.
'There are smoke breaks and different rituals that go with
smoking that we as an employer of course manage on a daily
basis as well," she said.
In insurance costs, the largest ramification would be upon


claims spurred by lung and throat cancers and heart disease.
It would not have a direct effect on the city's upfront costs,
Sinz said.
Though the new policy would not affect current employees
who use tobacco, city officials would encourage them to stop
smoking.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said "we are going into a per-
sonal behavior modification; I'm talking about people on their
personal time."
"Are we going to start addressing let's say we are not going
to hire a diabetic the next time," Holmes said. "Or are we going
to say, 'you are 20 pounds overweight. We are not going to hire
you either because you are a medical risk,'" Holmes said.
Sinz said there are no smokers' rights under the state and
federal government laws.
Holmes replied that the proposed policy is a form of discrim-
ination, and smokers have a right to a job.
Sinz reiterated that the city has "expensive claims experi-


ence that we are fielding for this population" and believes that
the city could be successful at establishing the policy.
Most commissioners said they were in favor of the policy.
Although Mayor Pat Gerard supported the policy, she said if
smokers are taking a break and "nonsmokers don't feel they
are getting the same advantage, that's really a supervisory
issue."
'They shouldn't be spending 20 minutes every hour having
a cigarette," she said.
City officials have said the Jan. 5 issue of Corporate Well-
ness Advisors reported that U.S. businesses are paying an ad-
ditional $3,391 per smoker per year in direct medical and lost
productivity from smoking-related illnesses.
Sinz said the only municipality in the county that has a to-
bacco-free hiring policy is South Pasadena.
City officials hope to implement the policy Oct. 1. The police
and fire-rescue departments have been tobacco-free since
1991.

Fraud Prevention
Seminar scheduled
With more than 33,000
active foreclosure cases in
the Pinellas-Pasco court sys-

become a real problem in
Pinellas County.
Unscrupulous individuals
prey upon those who are in
the process of losing their
homes, promising relief, but
providing few tangible re-
sults.
The third of four seminars
alerting consumers to the


perils of foreclosure fraud,
and offering direct assis-
tance referrals for those who
have either fallen behind in
their mortgage payments, or
anticipate missing payments
in the future is scheduled
on Saturday, July 24, 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. at Enoch
Davis Center, 1111 18th
Ave. S., St. Petersburg.
Counselors will be available
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Pinellas County's Depart-
ment of Justice and Con-
sumer Services recently
received a $100,000 federal
grant to fight foreclosure
fraud. The grant was provid-
ed through the American
Recovery & Reinvestment
Act.
A Foreclosure Fraud Pre-
vention Team has been
formed with the Department
of Justice and Consumer
Services as project coordina-
tor, along with Pinellas
County Community Devel-
opment, St. Petersburg

are open to all persons re-
gardless of gender, race, na-
tionality, ethnicity, age,
creed or disability. Persons
with disabilities should call
464-6200 at least 10 work-
ing days before the event so
that proper consideration
can be given to the request.

Burke named Clerk
of the Year
Pinellas County Clerk of
the Circuit Court, Ken
Burke, was awarded the
clerk of the year honor by
the Florida Association of
Court Clerks during the or-
ganization's summer confer-
ence.
Each year the outgoing
FACC president selects a
clerk who has contributed to


the overall statewide accom-
plishments of clerks' offices.
This year's outgoing presi-
dent, Duval Clerk of Court,
Jim Fuller, presented the
award to Burke, recognizing
his efforts in mobilizing and
organizing the Clerks'
statewide effort to move for-
ward the legislative agenda
with regard to clerk's court-
related budget.
Burke encouraged clerks
to visit their legislators at
the local level and arranged
for meetings during the leg-
islative session in Tallahas-
see in an effort to ensure
that clerks' concerns were
heard.
As a result of these ef-
forts and Burke's leadership
of the movement, the clerks
won a major victory in the
final legislation passed. The
clerks' court-related budget
was prevented from being
dramatically reduced as had
been proposed early on in
the session.

Governor calls special session on oil drilling


By SUZETTE PORTER

Gov. Charlie Crist is asking the state Legislature to allow vot-
ers to decide the future of drilling for oil off Florida's coast.
A special session is scheduled to convene at noon Tuesday,
July 20, and continue through 5 p.m. July 23.
In his proclamation, Crist said the special session "is con-
vened for the sole and exclusive purpose of considering the fol
lowing:
'The passage of a joint resolution to revise the Florida Consti-
tution to prohibit the exploration for, the drilling for, the extrac-
tion of and the production of oil beneath all Florida waters
located between the mean high water line along the coastline of
Florida and the seaward limit of Florida's boundaries."
In his proclamation, the governor points to recent events that
show the "magnitude of damage oil spills can cause to ecosys-
tems and communities" and the need to protect "coastal com-
munities, natural resources, beaches, ecosystems and the
general welfare of the state."
Crist said, 'The voters of this state should be able to collec-
tively decide, at their earliest opportunity, whether they want to
ban the exploration for, drilling for, extraction of and production
of oil in Florida territorial seas."
He is asking that the legislature provide "voters the opportu-
nity to amend their constitution to prohibit such activities dur-
ing the November 2010 general election."

Local impact
Thus far, no oil from BP's Deepwater Horizon well has affect-


ed Pinellas County or the west coast of Florida, although
weathered oil is coming ashore in the panhandle.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration re-
cently released models projecting the long-term likelihood of
surface oil affecting shorelines along the gulf and east coast.
According to the model, much of the west coast has a low
probability 20 percent or less. The model shows Pinellas
County's threat at 20 percent.
Rachel Wilhelm, NOAA public affairs specialist, said the
models plot the oil's trajectory based on 500 scenarios and
15-years' worth of historical weather and current informa-
tion.
The models assume that oil began flowing on April 22, and
project where the oil might go 120 days thereafter, she said.
'The models show what is likely to happen," she said. 'This
isn't short-term predictions for current conditions."
NOAA releases daily trajectory maps that show where the
oil might be within 24, 28 and 72 hours. Those maps are
based on current conditions. NOAA's models indicate that it
would take oil from the spill site about 20 days to reach Flori-
da's west coast.
The purpose of the long-term models is to assist with plan-
ning for possible future affects, Wilhelm said.
"The long-term model shows the worst case scenario for
planning purposes," she said. 'This is what could be expect-
ed, not necessarily what will happen."
The model assumes a 90-day oil flow rate of 33,000 barrels
a day, which is the net amount of the flow rate ceiling of
60,000 barrels a day minus the daily estimated amount being


skimmed, burned and/or collected by the Top Hat mecha-
nism. The model also accounts for the natural process of oil
weathering or breaking down.
Wilhelm said the models consider oil a threat to the shore-
line if there is enough to cause a dull sheen within 20 miles
of the coast.
Plans still called for a relief well to be complete by mid-Au-
gust; however, if the oil spill is not contained by that time,
Wilhelm said modelers would recalculate and new models
would be released.

PREGNANCY, from page 1


36 hours. Cue the slew of hard questions.
"So now you've been up for almost 36 hours
and you're asked at that point in time when
you're not thinking clearly and are in a state of
shock and wondering 'Is this real? Is this a
dream?' and you're asked, are you going to
do an autopsy?" LeClair said. "What level of
autopsy, because there's actually levels. Are
you going to have a burial or are you going to
have a cremation? There's all these questions
bombarding you in the worst state of mind,
and there's no one there to help walk you
through those decisions."
LeClair of Clearwater said that although a
funeral is required after 20 weeks of age, her
daughter, although she was seven months
along, was "failure to thrive," so her weight
was as if she were smaller than 20 weeks, so
that qualified for the option of having the hos-
pital "take care of it." At that time, exhausted
and overwhelmed, LeClair said thoughts were
swimming in her head about burial and cre-
mation costs on top of a hospital bill. Part of
her also didn't want to deal with the situation.
"So when this option is presented to you, we
gratefully grabbed it, with the thought of 'I'm
making it all go away,'" LeClair said. "The
nurse brought her to me, showed her to me.
That she looked fine but small. All 10 fingers,
all 10 toes. We each held her, but the nurse
kept looking at her watch. Never having been
in that situation before, I didn't know what
was expected of me. I didn't want to cause a
fuss. Also a little bit, you're embarrassed or
ashamed that you were unable to produce a
healthy baby. So we gave her back to the
nurse and listened to the newborn cries in the
neighboring rooms while we waited for our dis-
charge papers."
The LeClairs received a decorated cardboard
box with their baby's hand prints in it, and
then they were allowed to leave. But all the
way home and all that night, LeClair felt un-
easy. She didn't like the thought that they had
left their daughter, Rachael Elizabeth, at the
hospital. Furthermore, how, exactly, were they
going to "take care of it?" In the chaos of the
moment, she hadn't gotten all the details.
"I called first thing in the morning and told
them I had a change of heart," LeClair said.
'That we were going ahead with the funeral
somehow. It was at that point that I was told
that she was put in the biological waste and
incinerated during the night. That was an
emotional sucker punch. Then I said, okay,
well can I at least have some of her ashes? But
you have no right to those ashes because
they're mixed in with everybody else's. So
they're gone."
When LeClair had awoken the day after the
stillbirth, she walked by the freshly painted
pink room with the hanging mobile, and she
felt her pouch it had yet to go down and for
a moment, everything was all right.
"I had to touch my belly, and for a solid few
seconds I had to actually think," LeClair said.
"I was excited at first, thinking it was all a
dream. Everything is okay. The room is still
here. My belly is still here. Maybe it was a
dream. And then, eventually, reality came.
About seven days later, the nursery set came
that I'd ordered. And sample diapers and stuff,
they come in the mail for like a year."
In the days after the stillbirth, the only tan-
gible proof LeClair had of her daughter were


her prints, the scrap of sheet she had been
wrapped in, and her hospital bracelet.
"I went to a scrapbook store thinking, I
could get some shadowboxes and put the cloth
in there," LeClair said. "I don't know what I
was thinking. I just thought I just want some-
thing to formally display the sheet or some-
thing. But I went too soon. It had only been
like four days, so I go there and I ask the lady
if she has any shadowboxes, and she said no.
And somehow that was the most crushing
thing for her to say to me, and I just lost it. I
shouldn't have been in public that soon. But
she recognized the hospital band on my arm,
and she herself had had several miscarriages.
So she led me into the back room and told me
she had gone through it, so then I really cried
and was like, 'I just want something. All I have
is a piece of sheet.'"
It took two weeks until LeClair could cut off
her hospital band because it was a tangible
connection between her and the only place
she'd seen Rachael. The woman at the craft
store, however, introduced LeClair to scrap-
booking, so she made a scrapbook to com-
memorate Rachael's memory and to give her
comfort. She also planted a tree in her honor
of her.
Fortunately, LeClair had a network of people
from her church whom she could talk to a
number of them had lost children themselves,
so they understood her need to grieve and tell
her story again and again. Their patience was
an incredible gift, she said, because every time
she heard her story told in her own voice, she
accepted it a little more each time. It also
helped validate the experience for her to have
an audience for her story, too. Only she and
her husband were there for the birth or saw
Rachael, so it helped to prove she was real.

Helping other parents
As she shared and healed, she realized
there are others like her with similar stories.
She realized there doesn't have to be added
guilt. Added regrets. She decided to do some-
thing about this.
LeClair founded Silent Loss, a pregnancy
support group, based out of Clearwater that
serves all of Pinellas County, that goes be-
yond just providing a place to talk about
their situations after the fact. Her goal is to
reach parents before the labor process and
while they are going through that first major
part of their loss. The group helps educate
families about their choices, as well as ways
to help create positive, lasting memories.
Many families feel overwhelmed by the idea
of the financial burden of funeral costs on
top of everything else they are going through.
However, Silent Losses can guide parents
through this process and has connections so
families can have a nice funeral for their
child at very little cost. There is a Catholic
cemetery that does not charge to bury ba-
bies. There is a funeral home that will cre-
mate babies for only about $30. A florist
provides cheap prices for baby funerals.
There are many urn options available, in-
cluding some that are disguised like cute
baby items like an ABC block that can sit
unobtrusively on a shelf, she said. Other par-
ents choose to store the urn away but will re-
quest to be buried with it themselves
someday.
The group also helps parents with tender
moments before the funeral, working as par-


Photo


ent advocates.
"We encourage them to take pictures, to
see the baby, to hold the baby," LeClair said.
"Eighty-eight percent of parents who choose
not to see the child regret it. Because they
are in a state of shock, they forget to do
things that they might knock themselves for
later, such as, I'll tell them don't forget to
kiss a baby. Don't forget to sing them a lulla-
by. Don't forget to sit in a rocking chair and
rock your baby."
The group members tell nurses that they
know they're busy, so they will call the nurse
when they are finished so they don't put her
behind schedule, and the parents also have
the time that they need with their child.
"I went through all those personal regrets,"
LeClair said. "It didn't occur to me because I
gave my daughter up to the nurse so quickly,
it didn't hit me until I left, until, 'Oh my gosh,
she came into this world and out of this
world and nobody ever kissed her. Nobody
ever said how much she was wanted and
loved'. She was never even dressed. I didn't
think of those things. I didn't know what
'take care of it' means. And that's one of the
greatest regrets of my life."
A few times a year, Silent Losses also has a
special ceremony for parents of miscarriages
- and anyone else who wants to participate.
It is a dedication ceremony where the parents
come forward and officially name their child,
take a balloon, and write the name of their
child on the balloon. They may attach a note
or booties or something if they wish. After
everyone has received a balloon, the pastor
will dedicate the children to God if the par-
ents choose. Then, they all release the bal-
loons in unison.
LeClair said between 20 and 25 percent of
pregnancies are not carried to term, but it is
still an uncomfortable subject for society.
Mothers of miscarriages are four times more
likely to commit suicide, and mothers of still-
borns are six times more likely, LeClair said.
Also, 90 percent of moms feel they are at
fault for their child's death, as do 50 percent
of dads.
About 70 percent of marriages fail due to
the related stress, she added. Siblings and
other family members, such as siblings and
grandparents, are also affected, but they are

more likely to be overlooked. At the time of
LeClair's stillbirth, one of her sons was 10
and months later, he came to her in tears,
saying he was sorry he thought it was his
fault that the baby did not survive because
he had cooked popcorn, and that was one of
the smells LeClair could not stand during
that pregnancy.
Silent Losses provides four brochures -
one for parents, one for grandparents, one for
siblings, and one for family, friends and co-
workers to help each of those groups better
understand the situation, common feelings,
what to expect, what they can do, what to
say and not to say, and how Silent Losses
can help. The group also has monthly sup-
port group meetings, led by a parent who has
gone through the same situation. Sometimes
guest speakers are brought in, such as pro-
fessional counselors or pastors.

Completing her family
Rachael Elizabeth wasn't LeClair's first lost
child. She had had a miscarriage before, but
that loss wasn't felt as hard because she had
been carrying twins, so the joy of having one
healthy twin helped counteract the sadness of
losing the other twin. But after Rachael,
LeClair still longed for her girl, so after she and
her husband healed, they decided to try one
more time for their girl. They got pregnant and
she delivered a healthy boy.
"I was happy, but that makes three boys,
and I still wanted to put ribbons and bows in
somebody's hair," LeClair said. "I mean, I had
done the lizards and frogs and football and
trucks, and I was ready for ballerina outfits
and tutus, and I just really had that desire
strongly, so after our son, Joshua, I said, well,
let's try one more last time."
LeClair got pregnant with Rebecca Eliza-
beth, but she miscarried at three months.
They were devastated, but tried one final time.
It was a girl. And she made it all nine months.
Sarah Elizabeth almost died at birth, but doc-
tors were able to help her, and after those first
critical minutes, she was fine. They finally had
their girl. Finally, they decided their family was
complete.

Arson detectives investigating carport fire
SEMINOLE Detectives assigned to the Pinellas County
Sheriffs arson unit are investigating a carport fire in a Semi-
nole subdivision that damaged five vehicles.
According to the sheriffs report, deputies responded to the
fire at the carport located at 7581 Cumberland Road in the
Bardmoor subdivision at 10:20 p.m. on July 8. Deputies said a
witness saw the fire and alerted a neighbor, who in turn called
911.
Sheriffs deputies and Seminole Fire Rescue responded to the
scene.
Deputies said five vehicles, including a 2004 and a 2005 Toy
ota Corolla; a 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser, a 2005 Nissan Xterra
and a Ford Explorer were completely destroyed by the fire. The
structure was also determined to be a total loss.
No persons were injured.
Arson detectives were advised of the incident and are con-
ducting an investigation. At this time the cause of the fire is un-
determined. The investigation continues.

Jail employee crashes at jail, arrested
CLEARWATER A Pinellas County Jail assistant inmate
records supervisor was arrested for misdemeanor driving under
the influence after she crashed through the perimeter fence on
Pinellas County Jail property on July 7.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report, Diane Ferron,
42, was leaving the jail in her personal vehicle, and as she exit-
ed the back parking lot of the jail and was driving on the jail's
perimeter road, she lost control of her vehicle and drove
through the exterior perimeter fence, the report said. Her vehi-
cle continued on into the gravel lot of the City of Largo's waste-
water treatment facility, where the vehicle came to a stop.
Deputies responded and noticed that she seemed to be im-


paired, the report said. A major accident investigation team
deputy responded to investigate. Ferron was found to be under
the influence of a chemical or controlled substance that was
not alcohol, the report said. She was charged with one count
misdemeanor DUI and one count misdemeanor DUI with prop-
erty damage.

City gets first patent on traffic signal
control device
CLEARWATER The city has recently received a patent on
its remote manual override device for traffic signals, according
to a city press release.
The device was developed by the city and lets a police officer
control an intersection remotely up to 1,000 feet away from a
police cruiser, allowing multiple signals to be controlled at once.
It was created to ease traffic congestion at the Clearwater
Beach roundabout during spring break 2007, which was the
second spring break after the new Memorial Causeway Bridge
opened to traffic. Traffic operations manager Paul Bertels and
police Lt. Wayne Andrews (now retired) discussed how the
bridge had impacted spring break traffic and how the round-
about works in heavy traffic, so they decided they needed to
modify the metering signal at the roundabout to better control
traffic during high volume periods. Bertels presented a concept
for the device to Himanshu Panti, an Engineering Specialist II,
who then designed the circuit for the device.
If signals could be controlled remotely, then the city could
cut down manpower and control the intersection from a police
cruiser instead of by three officers at one intersection during
heavy traffic times, the press release said. Andrews said that if
a device like this was available, it might reduce traffic signaling
manpower needs by 6 percent, plus it would cause smoother
flow of traffic and less money spent on manpower.
The traffic operations division began production in the signal
shop, the unit was designed and developed by the city's traffic
operations division, and it was tested at the roundabout meter-
ing signal. Since then, the city has installed units at the Chest-
nut and Fort Harrison Avenue intersection and Chestnut and
Oak Avenue. Additional units are planned for other signals on
the beach and in key downtown locations.

Tethering is inhuman


Leader, July 15, 2010


Pinellas County commissioners, as well as
numerous other governments throughout
Florida, have adopted rules that prohibit the
tethering of animals.
All municipalities, as Seminole has, should
adopt such measures. Quite simply, the tether-
ing of animals is irresponsible.
Anti-tethering laws and initiatives have been
gaining momentum in recent years. Several
states have passed laws against tethering as
the Florida Legislature should and many ani-
mal rights organizations have pointed out why
dogs and other animals should not be chained.
The United States Department of Agricul-
ture reported in 1996 that enforcing the Ani-
mal Welfare Act had led it to conclude the
continuous confinement of animals is inhu-
mane.
Tethering restricts a dog's movement, which
could cause injury, and can contribute to ag-
gressive behavior. The Centers of Disease Con-
trol and Prevention maintains that a chained
dog is 2.8 times more likely to bite than an un-
chained dog.
The Animal Law Coalition says that chained
dogs can become aggressive due to intense
confinement and lack of socialization. They
also feel trapped, unable to escape from noise
or people that frighten them. Decreased in-
stances of dog bites in areas nationwide where


anti-tethering laws have been adopted is well-
documented.
Many cases have been reported about the
necks of chained dogs that became raw and
infected from collars that are too tight. Tethers
can be entangled with other objects, choking
or strangling the dogs to death. Chained dogs
are often given little affection and are often ig-
nored by their owners.
Animal rights advocates say chained dogs
don't make good guard dogs since they are un-
able to distinguish a real threat from a family
friend or neighbor. The best guard dogs live in-
side the home and are treated as part of the
family, which is how police K9 dogs are raised.
Enforcing the measure may cause some
problems, particularly since the county is fi-
nancially strapped, because it will require
extra manpower. It would be unrealistic to ex-
pect Animal Control or any agency to solve the
problem overnight. However, combined with
educational efforts, the fact that governments
have laws on the books should be a deterrent.
Opponents of such measures may argue
that alternatives to tethering, such as fencing,
can be expensive and inconvenient. But such
arguments shouldn't take precedence over the
need to ensure that pet owners are responsible
and their animals treated humanely.
Disagree? Put yourselves in the dogs' paws.

Crosswalks cause false sense
of security
Re: 'Crosswalks save lives,'July 1.
Editor:
Crossing Gulf Blvd. in a Crosswalk? Cross
your fingers!
How many close calls do we need to have
before we stop the illusion a pedestrian is
safer in a crosswalk?
A pedestrian in a crosswalk has the right-
of-way and can be dead right with a 3,000
pound bullet. Each time officials enhance
(adding lights, signs and words on the pave-
ment and now suggesting pedestrians carry
flags) is telling you there is a problem that offi-
cials are trying to fix! Please understand we all
have the same outcome of making people
safer. I believe we've created something that
has given the pedestrian a false sense of secu-
rity that allows them to think they are im-
mune, thus creating a danger. I've observed
people in crosswalks on their phone, iPod and
texting. My research indicates crosswalks are
more dangerous for pedestrians.
Numerous traffic studies report a pedestri-
an has a better chance to safely cross the
street not being in a crosswalk. The U.S. Bar-
ricades & Traffic Sign Study showed nearly
six pedestrian accidents were occurring in
marked crosswalks for every one mishap in
unmarked crosswalks. After removing cross-
walks, crashes decreased.
It was pointed out when crosswalks were
originally added "rear-end collisions increased
from 31 to 58," according to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation.
Cities can be sued! "City sued after baby is
badly injured in negligently maintained cross-
walk" was a reported case in which motor ve-
hicle hit stroller with a baby in it. The law firm
settled with the driver's insurance policy then
sued the City for negligent maintenance of in-
tersection. The basis is that it was foreseeable
that an accident would occur at this intersec-
tion, that the city had known of the risk, and
the City had failed to take appropriate mea-
sures to adequately reduce the risk. As a re-
sult the law firm reported that the city settled
the claim during trial for $2 million.
"City has responsibility for safe cross-
walks?" was appeal ruling in holding Seattle
responsible when pedestrian died owing med-
ical bills of $1 million dollars. A "municipality
has a duty to maintain its roadways in condi-
tion that are safe for ordinary travel," the
court said in its decision. Normally the driver
and city have been held accountable the city
for being part of the decision making to deter-
mine where is a safe place for pedestrians to
cross and resulted in an accident. The city of
Los Angeles was sued for $22 million. The
plaintiffs alleged that the crosswalk where ac-
cident occurred was maintained in a danger-
ous condition.
I've been crossing Gulf Boulevard for over a
half century, never having a problem crossing
the way my mother taught me: Look both


ways. I've always crossed at places where it
seems safest. I trust myself to determine when
and where it's safe to cross: not a sign, flash-
ing light, paint on the pavement or waving a
flag. I believe officials make the best decisions
they can with the references they have at the
time. I'm here to offer some new references
that will hopefully enable safer decisions for
our community. Disagree? Then walk out on
Gulf Blvd. into a crosswalk, my concern for
you is you will not be around to offer rebuttal.

Celebrate America
Editor:
The city of Largo has the finest fireworks
display in the Tampa Bay area without a
doubt. My husband and I consider ourselves
most fortunate to live and work in Largo as
the recreational opportunities far surpass
those of other municipalities in Pinellas Coun-
ty. While the fireworks are superior, I would
like to suggest a more traditional, patriotic
focus on the future events that comprise the
city's 4th of July celebration.
After attending last year's 4th of July event
at Central Park, I wondered where the patriot-
ic emphasis was. While the fireworks were
spectacular, the music, dancing and presenta-
tion shortly beforehand were totally devoid of
mention of the importance of why we were
gathered in the first place. Is a demonstration
of patriotism considered politically incorrect
by the City of Largo? Surely not.
This year when I see the twist dance event
planned as the main focus on the 4th of July,
still I wonder "where is the recognition of the
freedom of our country in all this"? I love to
dance, but on the 4th of July I hope to hear
music and presentations about the great free-
doms we have and how fortunate we are to
call ourselves Americans. Let's dance to cele-
brate America, not just to break records for
the Guinness Book of World Records.
I ask that your special events planner re-
search ways to entertain and educate our citi-
zens in America's history for the 2011 4th of
July celebration.
There is a growing movement in this coun-
try to get back to America's roots! Honoring
our founding fathers, our veterans and our
country next year will demonstrate that the
city of Largo is grateful for the privilege of
serving this glorious country so well.
Let freedom ring!

Have you ever met a vam-
pire? Neither have I. That's
surprising, because we seem
to be drowning in them.
Vampire novels, vampire
movies, vampire TV series. I
wonder which city will be the
first to name its professional
sports team 'The Vampires."
Vancouver? Valparaiso?
Vampires have been
around for millions of years,
not in actuality, but in the
minds of humans. Fear and
boredom were what gave
birth to the vampire, as well
as most of the world's reli-
gions. Bunch of Neanderthals
sitting around, nothing to do,
one says to the other, "Let's
think of something to scare
people." Second guy says,
"Okay, but what?" First guy
says, "Let's pretend we saw a
monster with two long teeth,
sucking blood from the neck
of a virgin." Second guy:
"What's a virgin?"
That's about all it took to
get the vampire story going, I
would guess. The origin of
the word "vampire" is buried
deep in Moldavia, Moravia,
Romania, Transylvania and
other low-rent districts of
Eastern Europe. Vampire
tales have circulated for
thousands of years, but they
didn't really get rolling until
the late 1890s. That's when
an Irish writer, Bram Stoker
(1847-1912), wrote "Dracu-
la."
The plot of the novel is
much more frightening than
the book itself. Lots of blood,
a wolf attack, a kidnapping,
a knife through the heart,
several deaths and the final
killing of the nasty Count
Dracula himself. I read
"Dracula" a few years ago
and found it not at all scary,
partly because the story is
told as a collection of letters,
news reports and diary en-
tries, rather than horrific
purple prose.


Vampires


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


Hollywood has done more
for Dracula and vampires
than any other form of enter-
tainment. Bela Lugosi and
Lon Chaney Jr. fashioned
entire careers out of the
Dracula legends. Most Drac-
ula films have several things
in common. Count Dracula
lies dead (or quite still) in a
coffin. But at sunset he
rises, often in the form of a
bat. He needs new blood to
sustain his life, so he's al-
ways looking for his next vic-
tim. Once he sinks his fangs
into the neck of a hapless
soul (usually a cutie-pie
named Melinda), the victim
becomes a vampire-slave of
Dracula's. The old boy can
only be killed by a stake dri-
ven through his heart,
preferably as he lies quies-
cent in his coffin. Until that
happy event occurs, ordinary
folks can shield themselves
from a vampire by holding
up a cross, by wearing a
necklace of garlic, or (best of
all) sporting a cross made
entirely of garlic.
Some critics have said
there is a sexual element in
the Dracula story. Could be.
After all, what's more titillat-
ing than the sight of a mid-
dle-aged man dressed in a
cape, sporting a set of teeth
that only an orthodontist
could love, hovering over a
frightened young woman
who wishes to heaven she
had never left Pittsburgh?
I've been unable to under-
stand why vampires (either
as bats or in Dracula form)
make only two puncture
wounds in Melinda's neck.
Why not six or eight bite
marks, thus increasing the

volume of blood and shorten-
ing the time required for the
whole nasty process?
Another question: why do
vampires attack only Melin-
da's throat?
Why not her shoulder,
cheek, arm or kneecap? In
today's world, with obesity
running roughshod over us
all, vampires will have trou-
ble finding a nice, open land-
ing strip on a person's neck.
Most Americans past 40 are
like the narrator in "The
Rocky Horror Picture Show."
We no longer have a neck. It's
mostly double chin.
My own theory on vam-
pirism is this: It's just one
more idea humans have
come up with to express our
desire for everlasting life. Our
longing to believe in life after
death is probably the root of
religion, near-death accounts
and many other notions that
defy rational, objective
thought. A vampire, in what-
ever form it has taken
throughout the centuries, is
a manifestation however
ghoulish of someone who
will never die. People take
comfort wherever they find it.
In closing, a few vampire
jokes:
What does Mrs. Dracula
say to Mr. Dracula each night
as he goes off to work? "Have
a nice bite!"
What is a vampire's fa-
vorite slogan? "Give Blood
Generously."
What does a vampire fear
most? Tooth decay.
Why does Dracula give so
much help to young vam-
pires? He likes to see new
blood in the industry.
"Doctor, I think I've been
bitten by a vampire!" "Here,
drink this glass of water."
"What good will that do?" "At
least I'll be able to see if your
neck leaks."

I've gained a whole new appre-
ciation of a couple of things that
prior to recent catastrophic
events were too easily taken for
granted.
First, is the Gulf of Mexico. It's
something you imagine will al-
ways be there to enjoy beauti-
ful, clean, and resplendent with
magnificent wildlife. Sadly we've
learned how quickly that can all
change.
I've lost track of how many
days have passed since the
Deepwater Horizon explosion
and the beginning of the worst
environmental disaster in our
country's history. I don't want to
count the days anymore. It's too
depressing.
It remains incomprehensible
to me that man chooses to go
places where he has little control
over the consequences of his ac-
tions with a catastrophic end
result. If the BP oil spill could
have been plugged by excuses,
public relations excesses, and
deception, it would have stopped
gushing weeks ago. Now we
must put our faith in the latest
BP science experiment a new

containment cap. Sure hope it
works not holding my breath.
Fortunately, those of us living
here along the west coast of
Florida have been spared the
horrors experienced by our
neighbors elsewhere along the
Gulf. I go to the beach now as
much as possible on time off,
just to soak it all in and remind
myself to appreciate the spectac-
ular view.
I reflect on how the pelicans,
ibis, sea gulls, herons and other
birds I watch fishing for their
breakfast are so blessed that this
is their home, instead of far
away, oil-fouled beaches along
the magnificent body of water.
There is only one kind of skim-
mer I want to see from my chair
at Indian Rocks Beach. It's black,
white and red with wings and
feathers. By the grace of God,
our beaches will remain free of


BP's filth that has destroyed so
many lives- human and animal.
The economic effects are far
reaching, right into our back-
yard.
Secondly, I've gained a re-
newed admiration and respect
for law enforcement. Certainly we
realize that the men and women
who've chosen to protect all of us
in their daily lives have a special
calling. But the brutal murders
of Tampa police officers David
Curtis and Jeff Kocab as they
were just doing their job opened
my eyes even wider.
The loss of such fine men at
such a young age is beyond trag-
ic. Watching their televised funer-
al from beginning to end was
both heartbreaking and heart-
warming. So many people loved
them, respected them, and now
must continue their lives without
them. Their loss is beyond mea-
sure.
I can remember as a teenager
when a group of friends and I
were surrounded by police offi-
cers on a private country club
golf course one summer night.
The officers stepped out from be-

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.

Instead of fearing or dreading
encounters with law enforce-
ment, young people should be
taught to admire and appreciate
them. We should make a person-
al vow to thank a police officer
every chance we get even if a ci-
tation is part of the conversation.
Couldn't we all use someone to

Law enforcement officers put

they go to work to do exactly
that.

Not necessarily fresh, 'Nunsense' scores big on fun, puns


Eight O'Clock Theatre's pro-
duction of 'Nunsense' runs
through Sunday, July 18, at
Largo Cultural Center, 105
Central Park Drive.
Performances are Thursday
through Saturday, 8 p.m.
Matinees are Sunday, 2 p.m.
Tickets are $26 for adults and
$16 for students age 19 and
younger. Call 587-6793 or visit
www.eightoclocktheatre.com.
Produced by arrangement
with Samuel French, "Nun-
sense," by Dan Goggin, teams
director Ron Zietz, choreogra-
pher James Grenelle and
music director Emi Stefanov.
The musical follows five sur-
viving Little Sisters of Hoboken
who must raise money to bury
residents of the convent who
were accidentally poisoned by
tainted vichyssoise prepared
by cook Sister Julia, Child of
God.
Let's be honest: Goggin's
punning nuns have been re-
hashing the invariably un-
changed gags for more than
two decades now. The expira-
tion date on some of this mu-
sical comedy's canned gags
has long since passed. Still,
audiences keep laughing at
the same dated material in-
cluding a worn-out caricature
of the "I've fallen and I can't
get up" commercial ... how old

is that?
So, what makes a success-
ful production of "Nunsense"?
For starters, it takes a gifted
director like Zietz who knows
his audience and knows
which aspects of the produc-
tion should be emphasized.
With 40 years of experience,
Zietz instinctively knows how
to tune some of these admit-
tedly predictable comedy
sketches to exploit the inher-
ent absurdity underlying the
show's premise and capitalize
on the hilarity.
Likewise, alongside Grenelle
and Stefanov, Zietz can polish
the musical numbers to near
perfection.
Of course, a capable cast of
provisional holy women also is
a necessity.
Leading the charge is Val
Sanford as Sister Mary Regi-
na, Mother Superior of the Lit-
tle Sisters of Hoboken.
Sanford imbues the character
with just the right amount of
imperviousness to keep her
endearing.
Second-in-command as


Mistress of Novices is Sister
Mary Hubert, played by
Stephanie Fox. As a vocalist,
Fox proves she's a power-
house delivering the second
act number "Holier Than
Thou."
Cherie Albury, whose past
roles included Fraulien Kost
in EOT's "Cabaret," portrays
Sister Mary Robert Anne, a
Brooklyn-born member of the
Little Sisters of Hoboken. Per-
forming "Robert to The Res-
cue" early in the second act,
Albury pays close attention to
stay in character.
Lily MacKenzie has one of
the strongest voices of the
cast as demonstrated in
"Benedicite." Playing Sister
Mary Leo, who dreams of
being the world's first balleri-
na nun, MacKenzie gets the
spotlight in the comic "The
Dying Nun Ballet."
Sadra Bostick's Sister Mary
Amnesia so named after a
crucifix fell upon her head
causing her to forget her iden-
tity is by far the best devel-
oped character in the
production. Bostick does won-
derfully depicting both the
comic and the tragic aspects of
Amnesia as her portrayal
ranges from scatterbrained to

Asolo Conservatory student
Benjamin Boucvalt will star
as the tormented prince,
whose quest to avenge his fa-
ther's death forces him to
wrestle with his own fragile
sanity. Boucvalt has spent
the past few years studying
screenwriting and film in San
Francisco. During his studies
it was only natural that he
found his passion for acting
through his passion for story.
Boucvalt's previous Shake-
speare performances have in-
cluded "Romeo and Juliet,"
'Twelfth Night" and "Measure
for Measure."

NUNSENSE, from page 9

poignant. Bostick also gets to
administer "The Quiz," which
allows for some limited audi-
ence participation and offers
a likely source of unexpected
amusement.
Even though the material
they are working with isn't
all that fresh, Eight
O'Clock Theatre's cast and
crew have done a wonder-
ful job staging this musical
comedy that is celebrating
its 25th anniversary this
year. As the signature
number states, "Nunsense
is Habit-forming," and
Eight O'Clock Theatre's
production confirms this
old show has plenty of life
left in it.

Clearwater
"The Kitchen Witches," by Caroline Smith, July 15
through Sept. 5, at Early Bird Dinner Theatre, presented at the
Italian-American Club, 200 S. McMullen-Booth Road. Seating
for performances Thursday through Sunday is 4 p.m. Seating
for matinees Thursday and Saturday is 11 a.m. Admission is
$29.90 a person. Call 446-5898 or visit www.earlybirddin
nertheatre.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 several life-changing events. These events are what en-
abled 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 record-
ing studio, the acclaimed singer/songwriter, winner of the 1991
Grammy Award for Best New Artist, has continued to perform
live and his audiences have remained steadfast. He endured the
pain of divorce, 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 during a random attempted carjack-
ing 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 recov-
ering at home in New York from post-traumatic stress disorder,
Cohn watched the city of New Orleans destroyed by flooding in
the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Out of all this, and all that
came before, comes "Join the Parade," a recording that is being
called Cohn's most accomplished and compelling album to
date. Cohn has translated some of his most complex and pri-
vate emotions into lyrical song-poetry 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.
"Bye Bye Birdie," a musical production presented by City
Players Inc., July 23-25, at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 N. Mc-
Mullen-Booth Road. Performances are Friday and Saturday, 8
p.m. Matinee is Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $23 in advance, $26
the day of the show and $10 student rush. Call 791-7400. With
book by Michael Stewart, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics
by Lee Adams, "Bye Bye Birdie" tells the story of a 1950s singer
Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley-type rock and roll singer who is
about to be inducted into the U.S. Army. Albert Peterson,
Birdie's agent, and his faithful secretary, Rose Alvarez, concoct
one final national publicity plan for Birdie's induction. The rock
star will bid a typical American teen-age girl good-bye with an
all-American kiss. Kim MacAfee from Ohio wins the honor. The
kiss takes place on the "Ed Sullivan Show." The show boasts a
cast of 62 volunteers and a live orchestra. Parking is free.

first time since her two sold-out performances in 2009. A
Chicago native, Griffin, a multi-faceted performer with a rapid
fire wit, is probably best known for her reality show "Kathy
Griffin: My Life On The D-List," which debuted on Bravo to rave
reviews in 2005. The first three seasons were each nominated
for an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. Griffin took

Dion and his music represent a special time and place a mo-
ment when a song could mean so much and a singer could
sum up what it means to be young, in love and on top of the
world. A street poet and singer of extraordinary versatility range
and resonance, Dion defined rock and roll for a generation. In
1957 he formed Dion and The Belmonts, named after Belmont
Avenue, in the heart of the Bronx. "I Wonder Why" was their
first hit and over the next two years the group earned a reputa-
tion not only for topping the charts but for creating some of the
most vital and exciting doo-wop music of the American scene.
With songs such as "A Teenager In Love" and "Where or When,"
Dion and The Belmonts earned their place in the history books.
Also appearing will be special guest Kenny Vance and The Plan-
otones.

Opening this week

DiCaprio steals secrets in thriller 'Inception'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

A number of new movie
releases will hit theaters this
week, including the following
films opening in wide re-
lease:
'Inception'
Genre: Action, science fic-
tion and thriller
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio,
Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gor-
don-Levitt, Marion Cotillard,
Ellen Page, Tom Hardy and
Michael Caine
Director: Christopher
Nolan
Rated: PG-13
Acclaimed filmmaker
Christopher Nolan directs an
international cast in "Incep-
tion," an original sci-fi ac-
tioner that travels around
the globe and into the inti-
mate and infinite world of
dreams.
Dom Cobb (Leonardo Di-
Caprio) is a skilled thief, the
best in the dangerous art of
extraction: stealing valuable
secrets from deep within the
subconscious during the
dream state when the mind
is at its most vulnerable.
Cobb's rare ability has made
him a coveted player in this
treacherous new world of
corporate espionage, but it
has also made him an inter-
national fugitive and cost
him everything he has ever
loved.
Now Cobb is being offered
a chance at redemption. One
last job could give him his
life back but only if he can
accomplish the impossible -
inception. Instead of the per-
fect heist, Cobb and his
team of specialists have to
pull off the reverse; their
task is not to steal an idea
but to plant one. If they suc-
ceed, it could be the perfect
crime.
But no amount of careful
planning or expertise can


prepare the team for the
dangerous enemy that
seems to predict their every
move. An enemy that only
Cobb could have seen com-
ing.

'The Sorcerer's
Apprentice'
Genre: Action, fantasy and
adaptation
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Jay
Baruchel, Teresa Palmer, Al-
fred Molina and Toby
Kebbell
Director: Jon Turteltaub
Rated: PG.
From Walt Disney Studios,
producer Jerry Bruckheimer
and director Jon Turteltaub
comes "The Sorcerer's Ap-
prentice," an innovative and
epic adventure about a sor-
cerer and his hapless ap-
prentice who are swept into
the center of an ancient con-
flict between good and evil.
Balthazar Blake (Nicolas
Cage) is a master sorcerer in
modern-day Manhattan try-
ing to defend the city from
his arch-nemesis, Maxim
Horvath (Alfred Molina).
Balthazar can't do it alone,
so he recruits Dave Stutler
(Jay Baruchel), a seemingly
average guy who demon-
strates hidden potential, as
his reluctant protege.
The sorcerer gives his un-
willing accomplice a crash
course in the art and science
of magic, and together, these
unlikely partners pit their
powers against those of the
fiercest and most ruthless
- practitioners of all time.
It'll take all the courage Dave
can muster to survive his
training, save the city and
get the girl as he becomes
"The Sorcerer's Apprentice."

The following will open in
limited release. It may be
several weeks before these
films appear in local movie


theaters.

'Spoken Word'
Genre: Drama and crime
Cast: Kuno Becker, Miguel
Sandoval, Ruben Blades,
Persia White and Monique
Cumen

Just off the road from a

unexpected phone call alert-
ing him that his father, Se-
nior (Ruben Blades), is
fatally ill. Cruz rushes home
to his dying father, a reclu-
sive former schoolteacher
still leading a traditional life
in their once bucolic moun-
tain valley, now ravaged by
poverty, drug abuse and vio-
lence. After years away, Cruz
quickly begins to retreat into
his troubled former life,
managing a Santa Fe hip-
hop club owned by a local
crime boss, Emilio (Miguel
Sandoval) who Senior used
to run with back in the day.
Seduced by the fast action
and easy money, Cruz loses
his poetic voice, his identity
and almost his life, before he
finds a way to heal his rela-
tionships with his family, his
community and himself.

'Valhalla Rising'
Genre: Action and foreign
Cast: Mads Mikkelsen,
Gary Lewis and Jamie Sives

Barde. Aided by a boy, he
kills his captor and together
they escape, beginning a
journey into the heart of
darkness.
On their flight, One-Eye
and the boy board a Viking
vessel but the ship is soon
engulfed by an endless fog
that disintegrates only as
they sight an unknown
land. As this new world re-
veals its secrets and the
Vikings confront their terri-
ble fate, One-Eye discovers
his true self.

Money saving tip: keep your cat inside


With the still sputtering
economy affecting many of
us, people are often looking
for ways to cut expenses. One
excellent way to save money,
as well as giving your cat a
longer, happier, healthier life,
is to keep them indoors.
Florida is a land of settlers,
with so many of us having
moved here from other parts
of the country. In more rural,
northern areas of the United
States, there are many barn
cats that have long and com-
fortable lives. Pinellas County
is definitely not rural, and
our sub-tropical weather, in-
stead of a northern climate,
leads to many problems when
we allow our feline friends to
explore the great outdoors
unsupervised. While the dan-
gers of cars, mean children
and aggressive dogs can be
avoided by keeping your cat
in the backyard, there are
many other dangers lurking.
Wildlife is a big problem for
outside cats. We have poiso-
nous snakes and spiders in
abundance. There are also
poisonous toads and lizards
that cats often hunt, or
plants they may munch, that
are toxic to them if ingested.
Unfortunately, our domesti-
cated house cat does not
"know better," and will not
hesitate to play with a blue-
tailed skink, which is report-
ed to cause seizures, or a
bufo toad, which can be
deadly if even licked. Keeping
your cat inside greatly de-
creases the risk of these poi-


sonings, thereby avoiding ex-
pensive emergency treat-
ments.
Bigger wildlife can be cata-
strophic for cats. Raccoons
will attack cats competing for
food bowls, and fighting with
opossums can cause great
injury as well. Roaming stray
cats may cause both injury
and spread disease; this is
magnified by the fact that an
intact male cat, which is by
far the most likely to carry
deadly contagious viruses
such as Feline Leukemia
Virus or F.I.V. (Feline Im-
munodeficiency Virus), will
travel several miles each day
in search for food and mates.
These long travels bring
them across the backyards
of many cats who are "home-


bodies." Even if your cat
does not wander, these dis-
eases may come home to
them. By keeping your cat
inside, besides decreasing
the risk of injury, it greatly
reduces the number of vac-
cines that would otherwise
be needed to protect your
friend, saving you money
every year.
One of the greatest wildlife
threats to cats is the growing
coyote population. Coyotes
are immigrants to Pinellas
County from more northern
parts on the U.S. They are
many well established packs
that now run through the
parks, golf courses and sub-
urban neighborhoods of our
county. These creatures have
killed hundreds of cats so far,


Rasta dog

Katie is a 3-year-old, rough coat
Jack Russell terrier who was
rescued from Arkansas in 2007.
She is a bundle of energy, tons
of fun and the "sweetest of
them all" according to her
mom, Joy Taylor of Belleair. As
our precious pet photo winner
of the month, Rastafarian Katie
wins one free grooming at
Beach Groomers Pet Salon and
Boutique in Redington Shores.
Our photo winner for August
will win a $25 gift certificate to
Largo Feed. Send your precious
pet's photo to csouthmayd@

and have been found in peo-
ple's fenced-in backyards
after easily jumping over a 6-
foot privacy fence. Even more
disturbing is that coyotes
don't actually feed on the cats
they kill, but rather hunt
them solely for sport. Luckily,
they have yet to figure out
how to open doors or win-
dows, so keeping your kitty
inside will make it much
safer.
Outside cats are much
more likely to pick up para-
sites as well, whether it is
fleas and ticks, intestinal par-
asites from the soil, or heart-
worms spread by mosquitos.
Heartworms are a known
danger to dogs, but every
year more and more cats
catch the parasite after being
bitten by a mosquito. Even
worse, this parasite that liter-
ally tries to live inside the an-
imal's heart is untreatable in
cats. Keeping them inside re-
duces, though does not elimi-
nate, the risk of these
parasites.
Are you looking to save
some money and make your
cat's life longer and healthier?
Keep them inside. Get them
toys and objects they enjoy
playing with, as well as "cat
trees" for climbing and boxes
for hiding. Their inside life
can be happier, healthier for
them, and much less expen-
sive and troublesome for their
owners.

mal Hospital.

My favorite flirt


Threat of oil makes the
privilege of my life with dol-
phins even more vivid. A dol-
phin who practically glows for
me is Q. She's turned the ta-
bles on who studies who.
It took years to habituate Q
to our research boat. She was
a clear skeptic; dolphins who
patently evade our boat de-
spite frequent exposure to us.
(We need to get reasonably
close to take dolphin pictures
as population biology data.)
Unlike most skeptics, Q
once yelled at us. A young calf
had come over to the boat. As
Q retrieved it, she vocalized
an obvious "Get lost!"
Like most skeptics, Q then
accepted us abruptly one day.
Thereafter, we became part of
the background and could
draw near without changing
her behavior.
Over time, though, Q's be-
havior has changed. She's be-
come a frustrating flirt!
For instance, Q sometimes
acts like a university col-
league who comes to my office
and opens a conversation,
only to spin and march away
once Ive stopped what I was
doing and am mid-sentence
in response. Lady, am I sup-
posed to follow you to your of-
fice?
In the same way, Q catches
our attention by swinging by
the boat at close range, only
to engage us in a wild goose
chase. Although Q will swim
more slowly than a goose
being chased will run, she

Watch
Ann Weaver


uses a clever pattern that
makes us drive around in cir-
cles! Q accomplishes this by
alternately swimming ahead
of and behind us, maintain-
ing a distance of 3-4 boat
lengths (60-80 feet). She and
her calf Qball will swim ahead
of us steadily until we follow.
Unexpectedly, they'll sub-
merge and stay where they
are until we overshoot them.
They'll surface behind us. We
dutifully turn around and go
back. Again they'll appear be-
hind us, now surfacing where
we turned around the first
time!
Humans tire of this game
before dolphins do.
Other times, Q uses this
behavior to lead us to other
dolphins. Last summer, we
were near the little dog beach
on our survey route when a
pair of dolphins flashed by
the boat like the single flicker
of a match in the night
woods. Q and Qball reap-
peared several boat lengths
ahead, moving at speed. Each
time they outdistanced us, we
lost sight of them and slowed,
uncertain of their path. Each
time, they would slow until
we resighted and resumed fol-
lowing them. They led us to a
hidden assembly of Bowery


Boy bulls attending female
Face.
Compliments of Q, I and
one of my students, former
FBI agent Marian Rosado,
spent the next half hour sur-
rounded by dozing dolphins.
Q, by the way, didn't stay.
Q sometimes acts out the
idea of not wanting something
until somebody else wants it.
She and Qball will be hunting
in one area, too busy to get
their pictures taken. Yet if we
go to the next group of dol-
phins to take their pictures, lo
and behold, there's Q among
them.
Just the other day, it was
possible that Q used the boat
to get rid of bothersome bulls.
She and Qball swam with an-
other adult female, skeptic
SBT, and two unhabituated
bulls, BNSB and Candle.
Skeptics and unhabituated
bulls do not swim near boats.
Candle was putting the
moves on Q while BNSB wait-
ed his turn nearby. When the
three girls began swimming
close to the boat, the two
bulls dispersed. Candle
breached wildly in the dis-
tance, shooting into the air
with his mouth wide open
and slamming down like a
falling tree. BNSB ripped up
the sea floor, creating a mas-
sive mudplume. The bulls ap-
proached the girls no more,
though they trailed them for
the next hour.
Of themselves, these dol-
phin vignettes may not seem

remarkable. In the context of
Q, however, they are.
Q is one of the 220-plus
dolphins we monitor. Unlike
anyone else, we see her with
startling consistency across
surveys, deeply endearing to
any field biologist. Clearly, she
lives in the waters of our
study area.
Notably, we also see Q
more often per survey than
anyone else. Two weeks ago,
for example, we saw Q in the


morning to the north with one
set of dolphins and then that
afternoon to the south with
different dolphins.
Does Q simply use the
study area waters like we do,
or is her behavior more about
us than we think? How many
times do we have to see Q
two, three, or four times per
survey before we reject the
idea that her appearance is
random? How much does Q
know about our intentions or


routine at sea? How often is
her behavior a test of our re-
sponses, like a maritime ex-
perimental psychologist?
One thing is for sure. Q al-
ways gives me something new
to think about. Thanks Q!

Cancer Society
The American Cancer So-


city is in need of volunteers
to drive patients to and from
their cancer treatments. The
society has a special pro-
gram called "Road to Recov-
ery." Volunteers also call
and make appointments with
those who drive the patients
for their scheduled appoint-
ments.
Countywide only about 25
volunteers give of their time
to drive these patients. Many
more volunteers are needed
to take clients to get their ra-
diation or chemotherapy.
The lack of having drivers is
a very serious problem for
thousands of cancer pa-
tients. It is not just a once a
week trip, but some patients
must go daily, over a several-
month period. These patients
are usually unable to drive
because they are ill or have
no car.
The American Cancer So-
ciety's Road to Recovery
program provides free
transportation to and from
their life-saving treatments.
Volunteer drivers give their
time and the use of their
own cars to transport these
patients.
Requirements to be a dri-
ver are a valid driver's li-
cense and a car in good
condition. Volunteer hours
are flexible and driving one
day a week is acceptable.
Training, maps and direc-
tions are provided.

Society Pinellas Unit at 812-
7006.

Flowers and butterflies


Sports 21

Baitfish numbers on the rise


Fennel is an unusual veg-
etable to add to tuna fish
salad; saute with butter, oil
and garlic; or slice very thin to
eat raw.
The plants I set out in Octo-
ber grew 4 feet high and pro-
duced large bulbs. I cut out a
few for my culinary delight
and left the rest as a tempta-
tion for swallowtail butterflies.
Before we get back to the
fennel, butterflies are attract-
ed to flowers that provide nec-
tar. Among those that grow
here are: aster, butterfly bush
(Buddleia), firebush, gaillar-
dia, golden dewdrop,
horsemint, lantana, Mexican
heather, Mexican sage, milk-
weed, pentas, phlox, porter-
weed, tropical sage and
verbena bonarensis.
Cassia bushes/trees attract
the sulphur butterflies. I'm
not an expert, but I wonder if
perhaps they're laying eggs on
the leaves so their young'uns
have a great dinner when they
hatch.


The butterfly has sucked
up all that nectar and is ready
to lay eggs. Very quickly, she
just places it on a leaf of a
plant she knows is right for
her offspring and flies away.
Unfortunately, the butterfly is
finished with its life cycle. The
egg hatches into a hungry
caterpillar. Some common lar-
val plants and their attracted
butterfly are:
Cassia, Cloudless sulphur;
Cleome, Checkered white;
Dill, Black swallowtail; Dutch-
man's pipe, Pipevine swallow-
tail; Fennel, Black swallowtail;
Hollyhock, Painted lady; Milk-
weed, Monarch; Parsley,
Black swallowtail; Passion
flower, Gulf fritillary; zebra
longwing, Ruellia; White pea-
cock.


One morning my back yard
was just like a butterfly
house. There were at least 20
of them darting and swooping
around the flowers. The
pipevine swallowtail had deci-
mated the Dutchman's pipe
and all those swallowtail
caterpillars had finished eat-
ing the fennel and were born
as carefree, winged beauties.
To say I was thrilled is an un-
derstatement.
All of these plants are avail-
able at nursery centers. Most
are unchallenging to grow.
Gaillardia, tropical sage and
milkweed self-sow and will be
repeaters. All the others are
perennials with phlox and
cleome "maybe" perennials.
Small or large gardens can
provide a welcome home for
butterflies. If only a few gar-
deners on a street grew nectar
and larval plants, did not use
insecticides, what a colorful
world we could have.

at sunfowerl368@juno.com.


There's no question that
this has been a slow baitfish
season thus far.
Capturing enough live bait,
namely pilchards can make a
huge difference in whether or
not you have a successful day
on the water. Pilchards, other-
wise known as whitebait, can
be an angler's biggest asset
when targeting a variety of
both inshore and offshore
gamefish.
Fortunately for us, it ap-
pears we now may be on the
verge of a major change.
Masses of juvenile pilchards
have flooded our bays and
beaches, these tiny baits will
grow quickly and soon they'll
be big enough to tempt most
any gamefish.
These smaller baits can be
used in a couple of situations.
Mackerel, bluefish and lady-
fish numbers have increased
with the arrival of the fry bait
and can often be seen busting
through the pods of bait.
Using a quarter inch mesh


Fish Tales
Capt. Tyson
SWallerstein


cast net will allow you to net
the baits without getting a
bunch hung up in the net.
Anchor up in the area that
the bait is the thickest and
toss out handfuls of free-bees,
this should bring the fish
right behind the boat.
Use a No. 2 long-shank
hook to prevent cut-offs and a
weighted float to help cast the
baits out.
Mangrove snapper love tiny
pilchards. Although we
haven't seen the numbers of
snapper near shore like we
had last year, it shouldn't be
long before their numbers in-
crease with the arrival of the
bait. There is however plenty
of snapper farther offshore,
many of the artificial reefs in
40 to 50 feet of water are


loaded with snapper this time
of year and the pipeline is an-
other spot that always has
snapper.
Taking a bunch of iced
down pilchards to these areas
can make for awesome snap-
per fishing. Use fresh chum
blocks and deploy a steady
stream of pilchards and it
won't be long before the
snapper will get into you
chum-slick. Use No. 2 live
bait hooks and usually no
more than a quarter ounce
egg sinker and lower your
baitfish right down the chum
slick.
Until next week get bent!

Rays plan to turn back
the clock
The Tampa Bay Rays will turn back the
clock nearly four decades when the Balti-
more Orioles visit Tropicana Field on Fri-
day, Aug. 13, at 7:10 p.m.
Both teams will wear uniforms circa
1970 and disco icons the Village People will
perform a postgame concert. It is the
eighth Turn Back the Clock game in Rays


history.
The Rays will wear the uniforms of the
1970 Tampa Tarpons of the Florida State
League and the Orioles will wear all orange
uniforms worn twice in 1971, the season
that produced an unprecedented quartet of
20-game winners in Jim Palmer, Dave Mc-
Nally, Mike Cuellar and Pat Dobson.
The Village People have been delighting
their fans since 1977. The six-man group
scored a number of disco and dance hits,
including their trademark "Macho Man,"
"Go West," "In the Navy," "Can't Stop the
Music," and their biggest hit, "YMCA."
In September 2008, the group received a
star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and at
the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium
they performed a dance routine with the
grounds crew. It has sold upwards of 50
million records world-wide.
At all Friday games, themed as Friday
Fests presented by Captain Morgan, the
first 10,000 fans will receive a collectible T-
shirt presented by the St. Petersburg
Times. Friday Fests also will include drink
and food specials, including the Captain
Morgan Blue Storm, special prize give-
aways and the Center Field Shuffle, in
which all fans will be permitted to walk
across the field and exit through the cen-
terfield gate.
Tickets are available at all regular Rays
outlets including raysbaseball.com and
raysbeisbol.com, the Tropicana Field Box
Office, and Ticketmaster outlets.

The long-term care dilemma


Recently, I have received a
lot of questions about long-
term care. The main ques-
tions are what is it and who
pays for it?
Long-term care is assis-
tance for months or years
with basic activities of daily
living like bathing, dressing,
or getting in and out of a bed.
Unlike medical care, which is
designed to get you back to
the way you were before you
became sick or injured, the
purpose of long-term care is
custodial that is, to keep
you safe and comfortable for
your period of incapacity.
Either you pay, the govern-
ment pays, or an insurance
company pays. Most long-
term care is delivered by fam-
ilies for each other at home,
perhaps with some paid help,
depending on family financial
resources. When the family
becomes emotionally and
physically exhausted, the

Hospice welcomes
medical director
CLEARWATER Dr. Dei-
dra Woods was recently
named Suncoast Hospice's
medical director.
Woods has been medical
director for two other hos-
pices, Hospice of Naples and
Lifepath Hospice of Tampa.
She began her medical ca-
reer as a registered nurse,
later becoming a doctor spe-

and geriatrics.
Her background includes
working in private practice
and serving as medical di-

family may decide to place
the loved one in a nursing
home, or other type of care
facility. There they continue
to pay until they become fi-
nancially exhausted, at
which time the government
may begin to pay, but not
with Medicare, a form of
health insurance; rather it is
paid with a welfare program
called Medicaid. Private
health insurance does not
pay for long-term care either,
because the purpose of the
care is not to cure or restore,
but to provide custodial care.
Long-term care insurance, on
the other hand is designed to
pay for custodial care. Long-
term care insurance will pay
for facility care, but it is more
commonly used to pay for
professional caregivers at
home. That helps the family
to keep a loved one at home
for a longer period of time
and with less stress.

with housekeeping, cooking,
and shopping. It also can in-
clude medical care provided
by registered or licensed
practical nurses. Home care
can be part-time or full-time,
depending on needs.

The big question and the
dilemma for most families is,
"can we realistically preserve
our retirement assets and in-
come while covering long-
term care costs?" As
discussed above either you
pay, the government pays, or
an insurance company pays.
If you plan to pay from per-
sonal savings, this means



tients who have undergone
abdominal or chest surgery.
Everyone is invited to par-
ticipate in the marathon.
Registration is required and


that you'll need to estimate
the future costs of long-term
care and set aside enough
money to cover those costs. If
you prefer to purchase long-
term care insurance you can
elect traditional long-term
care insurance, which works
much like car insurance with
ongoing premiums, or you
can elect to purchase a life
insurance or annuity asset
based on long-term care poli-
cy with cash or possibly by
exchanging an old life or an-
nuity policy. Each has ad-
vantages and disadvantages.
If you have questions about
long-term care, please don't
hesitate to call.

tion. Get the little ones in-
volved, Leo. A financial risk
pays off big time, allowing you
to erase debt.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
A humble request deserves
serious consideration, Virgo.
Do it if it is within your power.
A well-researched idea brings
glowing reviews and perhaps
even a promotion.
Libra
September 23 October 22
Sizzling temperatures in-
spire a change of venue for an
event, which, in turn, results
in the development of new ac-
tivities. Enjoy, Libra. A memo
tickles the funny bone.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
Relax, Scorpio. The tortur-
ous wait is over, and you re-
ceive the information you've
been waiting for. Proceed
swiftly but carefully.
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
You set a lofty goal and at-
tain it with diligence. Invite
some friends over to cele-
brate, Sagittarius. A little
windfall eases budgetary con-
cerns.

At BR we have taken full responsibility tor the cleanup in the Gult. We are
committed to keeping you informed.

Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a
Shore Cleanup Assessment Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanup begins
immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from 17 staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people
are involved in the cleanup operation.

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a
team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the
size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds,
and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the
Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has
been removed. As a result, in most cases when oil reaches a beach, it is
even possible to keep it open.

Our Responsibility
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has
been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned
up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs
of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not
always be perfect, but we will make this right.


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
