to keep the center open while it tries to launch programs.
"We will continue to work with staff, crunching numbers,
finding creature ways to help out," she said. "I think we can
pull it off."
The Friends of McGough, Bonner and the Nature Presenre
was started in April of this year to pmomote, maintain and
raise funds for the projects in those parks.
Volunteers said they have been opening the gates to the
parks in McGough and Boner parks since January. They

The members organize a "moms night

so that everyone can attend. Past out-

IARGO Park lovers are leaving no stones unturned in
their efforts to keep a natume center open.
City officials ame considering closing the nature center at
Mc Gough Park as part of their budget cuts for the next fiscal
year.
In recent months, people who use the park, located on
146th Street off W~alsingham Road, have pleaded with city of-
ficials to keep open the nature center.
Pat Edmond, a member of the Friends of McGough, Bon-
ner and the Nature Presenre, said at the City Commission

It's complicated. Yet, the concept is simple: Con-
tract with the nearest provider for fire and first re-
sponder services in unincorporated areas of Pinellas
County.
The problem is cost personnel cost mainly.
Pinellas County commissioners gave staff a direc-
tive on May 4, to "wire brush" the fire and EMS budg-
ets to identify potential savings while maintaining
perfonnance standards.
For the past several years, the county's EMS de-
partment has been decreasing its spending and defer-
ring expenses, said Craig Hare, county EMS
coordinator. During the "good years," money was put
into reserve accounts.
"So, we were able to live off our savings," Hare said.
To balance the EMS budget without depleting the
reserves, county staff is recommending a millage rate
increase of .1028 from .5832 to .6860. The increase
would mean an additional $10.64 a year in taxes for
a single-family residential property with a


meeting Aug. 5 her group has been aggresshrely searching
for ftmds to help offset the costs of keeping the center open.
She said her group recently attended a meeting in St. Pe-
tersburg hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Consenra-
tion Commission, which has a wildlife foundation in sealth
of partners to establish youth conservation centers.
"McGough fits the bill," she said.
She said the group was excited that the foundation had a
lot of money available, and "they are eager to part with it."
The group is optimistic that it will get money, but it will not
be available until January.

fizzled out and with no family in the
area; she turned to the MOMS Club to
answer her questions about being a
new mom.
"My child was hitting certain mile-
stones that they already had," Hordern
said. "It was just extremely helpful, I
didn't know many moms with kids."
Hordern said another great benefit
was the help from the MOMS Club Sun-
shine Committee, which delivers home-
cooked meals to members who have just
had a baby.
The MOMS Club also offers help with
older children by offering play dates,
which are organized by age group. The
Monkey group is for children born in
2008 and 2009, the Seahorse group is
for children born in 2006 and 2007, and
the Lion group is for children of all ages
and meets in the afternoon to accommo-


IARGO About 5.1 million American
women were "stay-at-home" moms in
2009, according to a 2010 U.S. Census
Bureau report. That number is likely to
increase in the future as the report stated
that the number of wives who are unem-
ployed has doubled in the past two years.
The MOMS Club of Largo (M.O.M.S.
stands for "Moms Offering Moms Sup-
port) is an organization open to both
stay-at-home and working moms that
can help these new moms transition from
working to staying at home with their
children by offering activities and sup-
port.
MOMS Club of Largo President Maris-
sa Nguyen said she knows the struggles
that come with being a new mom, espe-
cially a mom who is transitioning from
work to home.
"I was a working mom for awhile,"
Nguyen said. "It was a rough transition
and this has been a great outlet to get
involved. "
MOMS Club of Largo Treasurer Jill
Hordern would agree. When Hordern

son was bomn, many of her friendships

a new group forming, the Koalas, for
new babies. The play dates range from
a local park to Planet Jump to a
seabird sanctuary.
Most of the play dates are free or low
cost, Nguyen said. To join, members
must pay a $20 annual fee, but noth-
ing else is required, she added. Howev-

In this time when reduce, cut back and lay off seem
to be the actions of choice, Tampa Bay Newspapers
has had the rare opportunity to offer "more for less."
In moving from a tabloid to a broadsheet newspaper,
we doubled our full color capability and have even
more space available for news and photos. Additional-
ly, it allows us to provide affordable advertising rates,
which in tumn helps maintain a solid clientele base.
What does that mean to you? It enables us to deliv-
er to you free one of the best community weekly news-
papers in Florida. This is what you can truly call a


"win win" situation for readers, advertisers and the
employees of Tampa Bay Newspapers.
We understand that some of you might prefer the
smaller size paper, but ask you to keep an open mind.
We will still bring you the same award-winning news,
photos and features that you have always received -
just more of it! Let me know what you think by sending
your thoughts by e-mail to dautrey@TBNweekly.com.
Oh, and if you really like getting your hometown
newspaper free each week, thank (and patronize) our
advertisers.

As you read today's paper, you might have noticed
a "big" change to your Tampa Bay Newspaper.
Like most businesses across the country, Tampa
Bay Newspapers has been challenged to improve the
efficiency of our day-to-day operations. The mistake
that many make is to allow these "improvements" to
negatively impact the quality and integrity of their
business operation. That simply would not be accept-
able here.

Through continued consultations with PCED, JSKaraoke received assis-
tance locating a site for its expansion and was referred to Workd~et Pinellas'
LEAPS program through which the company found and hired four new
employees and is approved to hire two more.
"The staff at PCED connected us with the City of Largo, where we re-
ceived the city-specific assistance we needed to consolidate and expand
there, and introduced us to the programs available through Workd~et Pinel-
las, which allowed us to find the right people for the job and triple our
labor force," Straus said.
The hallmark of PCED's business support efforts is its continued rela-
tionship and assistance with clients, long after their initial needs have
been met, Meidel said.
"As a whole, our team is dedicated to ensuring our clients that we're
here to help them throughout their businesses' lives," Meidel said.
For JSKaraoke, which is located at 1185 Gooden Crossing, that contin-
ned relationship has resulted in the development of a new strategy for its
local marketing efforts to enhance its recent expansion.
"Above all, the business advice, direction and new, progressive strategies
we receive through Pinellas County Economic Development makes it possi-
ble to get the most of our moneys invested," said Strauser.

IARGO A local company is using Pinellas Economic Development's re-
sources to expand its Pinellas County operations.
In a news release, Jack Strauser, CEO and president of JSKaraoke,
said, "We approached Pinellas County Economic Development for assis-
tance with financing our growing business and gained so much more than
that. With their aid, we applied for and received an Economic Gardening
loan, were connected to hiring assistance, and developed a new marketing
strategy "
Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development, said in
a release that supporting local business means working directly with com-
panies to determine all of their needs and finding solutions for their chalk
lenges.
"Jack Strauser initially approached us about the possibility of Industrial
Revenue Bond financing to grow his company. Through meetings with the
company, we found that JSKaraoke was an ideal candidate for Florida's
new Economic Gardening Business Loan program."
The program will help provide loan support to businesses with between
10 and 50 employees that are poised to create high-wage jobs in Florida.
The loans, up to $250,000 per business, can help companies with working
capital purchases, employee training or salaries for newly created jobs.
JSKaraoke received a $250,000 loan through the program and used the
funding to expand from 20,000 to 60,000 square feet and grow its ad-
vanced manufacturing and refurbishing program.
JSKaraoke is the parent company of Emerson Karaoke, IXT Systems
and Forever Hits. Collectively, the company is one of the largest manufac-

MILLAGE, from page 1A

taxable value of $103,490, the average in Pinellas
County.
The tax increase would bring in $5 million to $6
million to fund essential services, Hare said.
Currently, a $13.8 million gap exists between pro-
jected revenues and expenses. The proposed plan to
balance the budget includes an increase in user fees
estimated to bring in $1.4 million, an increase in
the millage to bring in $5.2 million and decreasing
reserves by $7.2 million.
The EMS reserve account currently has $7.7 mil-
hion.
County commissioners asked staff to look for
ways to either negate the millage rate increase en-
tirely or lessen the amount. The only proposed
countywide millage increase for fiscal year 2011 is
for EMS.
Staff presented several ideas, totaling to $1.8 mil-
lion during the July 27 commission meeting. The
money would come from reserve accounts, elimina-
tion of two paramedic positions and elimination of
funding for Bayflite.
Assistant County Administrator James Dates said
by using reserves, currently held by the contractors,
$579,229 could be added back into the EMS budg-
et. Reserve money is intended for use by the con-
tractors to buy replacement vehicles and
equipment.

Rescue 19 and Engine 16
One controversial idea would change first respon-
der staffing for the Lealman, Pinellas Park, St. Pe-
tersburg and Seminole response zones. The zones
are part of the jurisdictional responses for Leahnan
and Pinellas Park.
The change involves Station 19 in Lealman,
which currently has three county-paid paramedic
positions, Station 16 in Kenneth City, which has no
county-paid employees, and Station 18, which has
one county-funded paramedic position.
The idea is to eliminate funding for Rescue Unit
19 and its two paramedics at Station 19. Engine 19
with one county-funded paramedic would take over
first responder duties.
The county proposes to fund one paramedic posi-
tion for Engine 16 at Station 16 in Kenneth City.
Kenneth City has contracted with the city of Pinellas
Park to provide fire service. Pinellas Park would be
responsible for providing the two firefighters re-
quired for Engine 16.
Staffing for Engine 18 would remain the same
with one county-funded paramedic and two fire-
fighters paid by the Leahnan Fire District.
Hare said the change would allow all three sta-
tions to have one county-funded paramedic posi-
tion. He said response times would remain within

Leader, August 5, 2010


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

The Pinellas County School Board unanimously approved the tenta-
tive 2010/2011 budget and adopted the maximum possible millage
rate at the first public hearing on July 27. The maximum millage rate
is set at 8.340, down .07 percent from last year's rate of 8.346, and the
total proposed budget is set at $1.35 billion.
This version of the tentative budget was explained to the board and
the public in presentations given by Kevin Smith, director of account-
ing, and Frederick Mat, assistant superintendent of finance and busi-
ness.
A mill is one dollar of tax for every $1,000 of taxable value, and the
school district's millage is comprised of the capital outlay funds as well
as general operating funds, including discretionary, critical operating
discretionary, local referendum, and the state mandated required local
effort.
Not only did the millage rate get reduced slightly, property values
are down, which is what generates the most amount of money for the
district, so that equates to an even sharper decline of revenue for the
district. This is illustrated by the rolled-back millage rate, which is the
rate that would be necessary to generate the same amount of money
that was raised the prior fiscal year, but using the new property values
after adjusted for new construction. In order to have the same amount
of money to work with as last year, the district would have had to raise
the millage rate to 9.3257, or a 9.7 percent hike. Because the district
did not do this, it estimates that it will lose about $48.6 million in
property tax revenue this year, according to a presentation to the
board by finance staff.
In total, the district had to cut about $26 million from the budget
this year. Various legislative issues increased the financial burden for
school districts, including the state decreasing the base student al-
lowance and continuing to require the class size categorical. The dis-


to retirement and attrition; $2.3 million savings on employee health in-
surance; $900,000 savings on transportation by reducing 20 routes;
school improvement funds found $1.2 million in savings; all depart-
ments' and schools' discretionary funds were each reduced about 15
to 20 percent, getting about $2 million in savings.
Also, additional duty days were reduced at a minimum of 111 days
to save money; overtime was reduced in all departments, getting an-
other $500,000; there was a redesign of literacy success, saving
$500,000; extended learning was reduced by $1 million; contracted
services saved about $2 million; travel reimbursement found savings
through reduction of travel and reimbursement going back to about
the 2004 rate.
There has been a new delivery model designed for math and science
coaches, after lots of input from principals and teachers, saving about
$800,000; blackberry usage will save money by taking them all back
and then reissuing them based on safety and efficiency; substitute
teachers funds will produce savings by reducing the numbers of teach-
ers pulled out of school for training and save at least $1.4 million in
subs. The district added an early retirement option, saving a total of
$17.7 million.
When the audience had the chance to speak, Kim Black, president
of the teachers' union, thanked the district for eliminating furloughs
from the table and for allowing step increases and an additional train-
ing day. She said she was also pleased that the various groups are
restoring their relationships.
'We're back on track, and we're working together to restore relation-
ships that have been previously damaged due to the recession and the
result of the severe economic hardship," Black said.
The district unanimously passed the maximum millage rate and the
tentative budget. The final budget hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 14,
7 p.m., at the School Administration Building in the Conference Hall,
301 Fourth St. SW, Largo.


By BOB McCLURE

BELLEAIR BEACH Beach communities are basically
an interlocal agreement away from gaining their long
sought prize $35 million in capital improvement fimds
from Pinellas County for improvements to Gulf Boule-
vard.
Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala and Coun-
ty Commission chair Karen Seel both confirmed at the
July 28 meeting of the Barrier Islands Governmental
Council the county's intention to move fonvrard as soon
as possible on a two-year-old promise to provide beach
communities with the funding.
Allocations would begin in 2013 and continue in in-
crements through 2019. Towns and cities along the
beaches will be able to bond against the amount each is
due following the completion of an interlocal agreement
with the county.
"An interlocal agreement, effective in October, will give
you the opportunity to begin construction immediately,"
said LaSala.
The question is whether the county will work one in-
terlocal agreement imrolving all beach communities or in-
dividual interlocal agreements for each municipality.
"We need to keep it as simple as possible," said
LaSala. "If the money is going to flow to an individual
city, we're going to need an agreement with that city. If
there's a central point, one agreement would be suffi-
clent."
The funding was originally promised by former County
Commissioner Rodney Stewart. The $35 million figure
dropped to $26 million at one point but was recently re-


instated to the original promise by the county.
The original proposal included distribution begimling
in Fiscal Year 2011 but that time frame was moved back
24 months.
The amount each city receives is based upon its
frontage along Gulf Boulevard.
Cleanvrater will receive a total of $6.7 million, Belleatr
Beach, 2.9 million; Indian Rocks Beach, $4.1 million; In-
dian Shores, $4 million; Redington Shores, $1.7 million;
North Redington Beach, $1.2 million; Redington Beach,
$1.6 million; Madeira Beach, $3.3 million; Treasure Is-
land, $3.8 million; and St. Pete Beach, $5.7 million.
Most communities plan to use the money for placing
utilities underground.
In other action:
*Seel gave a presentation on the county's Transporta-
tion Task Force, which will focus on the longterm trans-
portation of the county. "It's no secret Pinellas County
needs to build a mone diverse economy with more higher
paying jobs," she said. "Transit enters heavily into the
equation."
Seel pointed to the Charlotte-Raleigh, N.C., area as
one of the leaders getting a good portion of high tech jobs
now. One of the reasons for the Tampa Bay area losing
out is its lack of a reliable transit system. In a recent
Forbes Magazine sunrey of average commute time, the
Tampa Bay amea ranked last out of 60 metropolitan areas
measured. A reliable light rail system is the ultimate
goal. Seel said the Federal Transit Administration's New
Starts program would pay for about 50 percent of the
cost, as long as the project is tied to urban and job devel-
opment.


MOMS, from page 1A


said.
TI e MOMS Club is an international non rofit
organization with more than 2,000 chapters in
seven countries, according to the MOMS Club in-
ternational Web site, MOMSClub.org. There are
many local chapters but if a mom is interested in
joining the Largo chapter, she should contact
membership Vice President Mindy Watson at
MOMSClubo~Largo@yahoo.com. New members can
also show up at a meeting, Nguyen said. Meetings
are held the first Monday of every month at the
Largo Public Library at 9:30 a.m. Nguyen said chil-
dren are welcome at meetings, and can even stay
after for arts Nguyen said. The club is a blend of
all ages and races and invites all moms to join.
"Every mom that joins will find at least one other
mom that she clicks with," Nguyen said. "So what
if you have spit-up on your shirt; come out to the
party!"


The MOMS club also raised funds for many
charitable organizations. The club members raised
$600 for the RCS Grace House at their annual
end-of-year banquet at the Thirsty Marlin. They
also donated $200 to the Mother-to-Mother Fund,
which supports mothers in crisis.
The MOMS Club also has an online group exclu-
sively for members where moms can post recipes,
child safety recalls, coupons or ask for help.
"It's great to get that information from a trusted
source," Nguyen said. "The support they can pro-
vide is priceless."
Nguyen said she saw moms giving that kind of
support when a member's car broke down recently
and another member was right there to help her.
"I always have someone to call if there is an
emergency in the middle of the night," Nguyen


named J.R. and other wildlife.
"The nature center gives them hands-on experiences
that they get excited about," she said, "and it encourages
them to learn more about science."
Although commissioners did not take action on the
issue, Commissioner Gigi Arntzen said "w~e heard some
interesting ideas."
"I hope staff will be bringing us some of those to talk
about the future," she said.
City commissioner will be discussing their proposed
budget in upcoming weeks and expect to adopt it in con-
junction with two public hearings in September. The
proposed tax rate remains the same as the current fiscal
year's.


the county standard of 7 1/2 minutes 90 percent of
the time. Station 19 and Station 16 are located
about one mile apart.
Response times for residents, who live farthest
from Station 19 or any fire station, could see re-
sponse times of one to two minutes more than peo-
ple who live closer, Hare said.
A study shows using three paramedic-fire respon-
ders from three stations would maintain or improve
response time and level of service, Dates said.
Lealman would lose two continually staffed
paramedic positions at a savings of $860,000. Pinel-
las Park would gain one paramedic position at a
cost of $409,000. The savings to the EMS budget
would be $451,000.
Several commissioners, as well as members of the
Leahnan Fire District and several area residents, ob-
jected to the elimination of Rescue 10. The primary
concern was an increase in response time to resi-
dents living in the western part of the Leahnan Fire
District.
Commissioner Calvin Harris said changing the re-
sponse time "scares me. Adding a minute to some-
one having a stroke or heart attack can be a long
time.
Officials from the Lealman Fire District voiced the
most concern.
Chainvoman Rebecca Harriman said the change
would mean taxpayers in the Leahnan Fire District
would have to pay more. She said the population
was made up of low-income residents.
"There's no way we can afford this," she said.

Squad 26
Staff also proposed eliminating funding for one
paramedic position for Squad 26 run by Pinellas
Suncoast Fire and Rescue.
In 2010, the county eliminated funding for one of
two paramedics with PSF&rRD. If commissioners ap-
prove this latest plan, the second position would be
eliminated in fiscal year 2011.
The change would save another $484,750 for the
EMS budget.
According to the plan presented by staff on July
27, Seminole and Madeira Beach would provide first
responder services for Indian Shores, Redington
Beach, North Redington Beach and Redington
Shores. The towns currently contract fire protection
service with Seminole and Madeira Beach.
Dates said initial response from beach towns had
been favorable. He said Paramedics Plus would post
an ambulance in the area to supplement coverage.

13ayflite
Pinellas County has funded Bayflite since 2004 to
help offset the cost of transporting uninsured indi-
viduals to a trauma center. Pinellas is the only
county in Tampa Bay that provides such funding.

Two paramedic positions are up in the air as Pinellas County Commissioners consider a staff plan to reduce
the EMS budget.


Staff recommends cutting funding to Bayflite for a
savings of $312,500 for one-half year. The contract
requires six-month notification for cancellation
without cause.
Harris did not favor the proposal.
"I don't like this either," he said.
Commissioner Ken Welch agreed, as did Commis-
sion Chair Karen Seel.
"I'm shocked to even have this put on the table,"
Seel said.
Bob Thornton, chief financial officer from
Bayfront Medical Center, which operates Pinellas
County's only trauma center, said the money it re-
ceives for services from private insurance companies
and funding from Pinellas County currently funds
Bayflite.
He said the medical center considered Bayflite as
"part of the whole" and received no government
funding except from Pinellas County.
'Wer come when the call comes in and we trans-
port regardless of ability to pay," Thomnton said.
He said Bayflite was a "critical partner to the EMS
system." He also said the contract with Pinellas
County was "integral to the success" of the program.
He blamed the situation on the economy and


spoke of Bayfront's commitment to Pinellas County.
"Regardless of hard times, it's our mission to
serve," he said. "Whe're calling on your commitment.
Reducing or elimination of Bayflite would hurt the
people of today and in the future."

No decision
The Board of Pinellas County Commissioners
serves as the Emergency Medical Services Authori-
ty and by charter is responsible to make the final
decision.
However, County administrator Bob LaSala told
the commissioners not to make any decisions on
July 27. He asked them to consider the "bigger
view" and to "ponder it for the next six to seven
weeks. "
Harris said he was reluctant to "experiment with
response times. We run the risk to have real heart-
break. "
Officials are currently waiting on the results of a
study before making any long-tenn or wide-reach-
ing changes to the system.
"We'll do what we need to do," Welch said,
adding that more difficult decisions would be nec-
essary.


School Board approves tentative budget millage rate


18 tOtal, the district had to cut about $26
million from the budget this year. VariouS
legiSlatiVe issues increased the financial
burden for school districts, including the
state decreasing the base student
allOWance and continuing to require the

trict used federal stabilization funds to try to fill the gap, but this is the
last year that these funds will be available. The state now provides only
37 percent of the district's funding, leaving the local taxpayers to pick
up 48 percent of the responsibility.
The district's priorities are highest student achievement, providing a
safe learning enviromnent, having an effective and efficient operation,
and the operating budget parameters. These priorities were kept in
mind when the district decided on which tough cuts to make. Cuts are
difficult because salaries make up 63 percent of the operating budget,
with benefits making up 22 percent. The operating budget are the
funds that are used for day-to-day operating expenses for the district,
which also includes supplies and materials, textbooks and library
books, student transportation, utilities and maintenance and repairs.
This year's operating fund is $888 million.
School Board member Linda Lemner asked for a summary of the ten-
tative budget cuts so the public would know what is being discussed
at the moment. For instance, until shortly before the first budget hear-
ing, teacher furloughs had been in the plan, but those are no longer on
the table.
Superintendent Julie Janssen said some examples of major cuts are
$1.3 million being saved through staff reductions many of those due

IARGO The National Forensic Science Technolo-
gy Center provided a basic forensic science training
to seven Reserve Officers' Training Corps cadets
during a two-week course at no charge to the partic-
ipants or their units.
The program, which ran from July 12-23, pre-
pared the cadets with a better understanding of how
the military uses a variety of forensic science disci-
plines to gather intelligence.
The course, Forensics and Biometrics Intemnship
for ROTC, was originally developed and delivered to
12 cadets in July 2009. Major scott Macksam, As-
sistant Professor Military Science and Leadership,
U.S. Army ROTC at UsF st. Petersburg, said in a

"As a result of this training," said Macksam,
"these cadets will learn to identifyi what's going on in

officers because they'll have better information."
This year's class was offered to sophomore cadets
from the University of south Florida, the University
of Tampa, Hillsborough Community College and
Florida southern College. Applicants were selected
for the program based on their GPA and their desire

Leader, August 5, 2010


The county's Charter Review Commission has decided
against recommending that the Legislature pass a spe-
cial act to allow voters to authorize the repeal and re-
placement of the current charter.
That's the best course of action in light of fears that
the dual vote provision would be eliminated or compro-
mised.
Pinellas County's charter requires that charter
changes be approved by county voters as well as by vot-
ers in municipalities that would be affected. Municipal
leaders said any change to that system would threaten
their home rule.
Such fears led to a lawsuit filed by several cities in
2006 against the Charter Review Commission and the
county over proposed charter amendments.
At the time, Amendment No. 4 would have deleted the
requirement of a dual vote for any charter amendment
pertaining a transfer of county, city or special district


service or regulatory authority. It was soundly defeated,
with 141,281 no votes to 107,030 yes votes.
Though county officials say there is no intent to re-
move the dual vote requirement from the charter, city of-
ficials remain concerned that a fight could ensue
between the cities and the county.
At a time when all governments face many challenges,
such as severe budget shortfalls, cutback in services
and employee shortfall, officials should avoid potentially
expensive battles over charter proposals, especially in
the absence of a hue and cry to make changes.
With so many pressing matters on legislators' plates, a
legislator on the Charter Review Commission said he
doubted that the matter would be considered by the Leg-


saying that it is adamantly opposed to Bright House Net-
work's relocation of government access channels.
The city contends that the number of viewers for gov-
ernment access channels were moved to a digital-only
tier, which damages the local government's ability to get
vital information to the community.
The city asks that such channels be restored to their
prior locations among analog programming to be avail-
able to the public without additional charge. The council
has passed the resolution on to other cities for consider-
ation.
Kudos to Pinellas Park for taking the lead on the mat-

The WV dinners were calling my name: steak tips
Dijon, whiskey steak, sweet and sour chicken.
Which is it going to be?
"Hey, Tom, do you want to go to the Wing House?"
a friend asked.
Rescued again, from death by culinary torture.
You see, I can't drive these days. I had surgery on
my right foot, and there's a pin protruding from the
top of my second toe. The doctor said it would not
feel good if I snagged the toe on something, especial-
ly if I'm driving. I'm pretty sure that he is right.
So I'm grounded.
My dear mom has gone out of her way to help me,
and she worries that I'm going to starve.
"You only have two WV dinners in your refrigera-
tor. What else are you going to eat?"
"Whell... Guess ..."
"I know how finicky you are."
Not sure why I'm a fussy eater. Perhaps it had
something to do with my childhood eating all
those putrid school lunches. Civil War hardtack
comes to mind. I bet the prisoners at Andersonville
ate better.
"Whell?"
Mom snapped me out of my daydream.
"I guess a couple of more WV dinners."
"Like what?"
'Terlyaki chicken."
"OK King Germond."
She's gone now, and I know that I'm prolonging
the inevitable. Sooner or later, I'm going to have to
slap one of those babies into the microwave and
hope that the ingredients don't do a BP on my intes-
tines.
I've tried to give away WV dinners without success.
"I'm overstocked; I have three left," I e-mailed a co-
worker.
Maybe there's another way to prepare WV dinners
besides microwaving them or baking them.
Since I can move somewhat around the house.
what if I grilled the whiskey steak? Probably would
violate federal emissions standards.
I used to like certain WV dinners. Mashed potatoes


Tom
Germond


and fried chicken were my favorite, which explains
why I'm a poster child for colonoscopys.
Nevertheless, WV dinners have quite a following.
Believe it or not, according to a Web site, the aver-
age American eats six frozen dinners a month and
lives to tell about it.
The ministers of propaganda for WV dinners,
frozen dinners, or whatever you call them, say they
are not going away any time soon. So if you are
going to have a frozen dinner, they say, try to pick a
dinner that has some nutritional value. One that
has oceans of sodium is not a good choice.
In 1986, the original aluminum Swanson WV Din-
ner tray was inducted into the Smithsonian Insti-
tute. What the Web sites don't tell you is that it is
encased in an exhibit for famous petrified artifacts.
OK, maybe I have a poor attitude. I can see the
letters coming:
"Mr. Germond, there are millions of starving peo-
ple out there, and you are complaining about having
to eat a few WV dinners. You should be ashamed of
yourself."
When I was a kid, my standard reply to that line
was send the WV dinners to the starving people. I
was too young to realize that by the time those din-
ners made it overseas, they'd be petrified.
Realizing that my cupboards were almost bare
the other night, I pulled the sweet and sour chicken
dinner out of the refrgerator and threw it in the mi-
crowave. I sniffed at the product a few times,
chewed the entree and actually liked it.
"Not bad," I said.
So I'm ready for the whiskey steak. What have I
got to lose? I've tasted worse things in life.
Crow comes to mind.


Reading the following column could save you the
price of a movie ticket. Or maybe not.
The recently-released blockbuster "Inception" has
been getting mostly good reviews. But some of them
have suggested that customers may want to see the
movie twice once for sheer enjoyment, and the
second time to figure out what in heaven's name the
film was about.
The best advice for first-timers is this: pay close
attention to everything that's done or said. Most
modern movies don't require us to do anything
more than count the number of explosions and uses
of the "F" word. In contrast, "Inception" deals with
ideas. Does it ever.
The major ideas are (A) that the human mind can
be invaded and its contents stolen, or extracted and
(B) that outside data can be secretly implanted in a
victim's mind. That pro-
cess inception can
turn the victim into a "I don't know i
helpless slave or robot.
It's sort of like listening Win any award
to too many Rush Lim- but it's a lock t
baugh broadcasts.
Leonard DiCaprio por- Oscar or a Gol
trays Cobb, a bad guy itS S OCial effel
who uses both drugs
and high-technology to
invade the minds of
sleeping big-time executives and steal valuable cor-
porate information. But Cobb is sick of his line of
work. He just wants to get home to his two small
children, from whom he's been exiled because of
his being wrongfully accused of murdering his wife.
His big chance to get out of the mind-mnvasion
racket comes when a businessman, Saito, hires
Cobb to invade the mind of Fischer, a young indus-
trial heir, and convince him to break up the empire
he'll inherit when his father dies. If Cobb can do
this, he can return to the real world and be happy
with his children. Or so he hopes.
That's the skeleton of "Inception." The guts of the
film lie in its interwoven mind-games and its spe-
cial effects meant to show the visions, grandeur
and horrors that can inhabit anyone's dreams or
subconscious. I don't know if "Inception" will win
any awards for its acting, but it's a lock to pull
down an Oscar or a Golden Globe for its special ef-
fects. They are so far out you may choose to see the
movie a second time just to again witness all of
Paris turned upside-down or teams of assassins
plying their trade while spinning through gravity-
free hotel corridors.
Logic plays a part in this movie, but it's slippery.
For example, near the film's end for no apparent
reason the action shifts abruptly to an Alps-like
setting. A mountain fortress houses Fischer's dying


father. Cobb and his allies attack. Shootings, explo-
sions and avalanches ensue. The fortress is the
imagining of a young designer genius, Ariadne
(Ellen Page). As an actress, Page is appealing but
generally expressionless. But she will bring in the
younger movie crowd.
Michael Caine has a walk-on role that could have
been handled equally well by dozens of other ac-
tors. A much larger
role is filled by a spin-


Harn Boulevard now dangerous
Editor.
There is a piece of traffic engineering in the city of
Clearwater that really needs to be corrected. Ham
Boulevard has been engineered to the point where it
is now dangerous. First, it was speed bumps that
dropped the speed limit from 25 to 15 mph.
Then it was concrete traffic barriers in the middle
of the street that limited the space available for au-
tomobiles. Now they have put in concrete curb ex-
tensions that are downright dangerous. Who is
doing the thinking on this last decision?
The concrete curb extensions further narrows the
space available for auto traffic. It completely elimi-
nates the space available for bicycles. We do have
children in the neighborhood who ride their bicy-
cles. They are not allowed to ride on the sidewalks.
They can only nide in the streets and there is insuf-
ficient room on Ham Boulevard for a car and a bi-
cycle to pass the concrete curb extensions. Sure.
the bicycle is supposed to stop when it comes to the
barrier to allow the auto to pass. They are betting
the children's lives that they will stop. Wouldn't
anyone think that may be rather high stakes? A
child or an adult may be distracted on approaching
one of the curb barriers and accidentally pull into
the path of a car. Serious injury or death could be
the result.
I fail to see any useful purpose for the need of the
curb extensions. However, there is a need for a bi-
cycle lane. There is sufficient room for a bicycle lane
and this need and room takes nothing away from
the room available for automobiles. This engineer-
ing defect should be corrected before a tragedy re-
sults

Think for yourself
R Silent Losses Support Group. July 15

Tanya LeClair founded a group called Silent Loss-
es for mothers who have lost their children. There-
fore, women in that situation would have others in
the same situation to support them.
The question here is why be selfish and have
children to add to the world starvation problem, as
our world is multiplying rapidly in large numbers.

There is more to life than being a housewife.
mother and basically a breeding mare for a man,
husband or otherwise.
Instead of being so self-centered, women need to
stop basing their self-worth on a man, as there is
more to life than a sexual relationship with a
man/woman,
People need to start thinking about what they
can do to help alleviate the world's problems, in-
stead of physical gratification and adding to the
world's problems by having children.
Almost everyone in the world today complains

ning top known as a
totem- which serves to
authenticate the iden-
tity of whoever owns it
or gave it its last spin.
The film contains
dozens of car chases.
In the cars are various
persons, usually sedat-


ed and calm, despite a
hellish array of gunshots going off around them.
One shot seriously wounds Saito in the chest, and
he looks ready to die. But then the dreamscape
shifts, and the wound is healed.
You got all this straight?
'Inception" was written and directed by Christo-
pher Nolan, a 39-year-old British-American who de-
veloped the film over a 10-year span. The movie
lasts 148 minutes, which is twenty minutes too
long. Whether you enjoy or understand the movie
may depend on your IQ. your familiarity with LSD
trips, and/or the success of your last reading of
Sigmund Freud's dream theories.
I'm not sure how many stars to give "Inception."
But I'm glad I saw it. I'll be happy to view it again,
but next time it will be at home on a DVD. This will
allow me to stop the action any time I wish, to deci-
pher what's going on. If I were 30 and had grown
up with assorted sci-fi computer games and gadg-
ets as part of my daily training, I might not feel as
baffled as I do with many modem movies, WV pro-
grams and communications devices. As is, I feel in-
creasingly lost in today's hi-tech world. I recently
learned that "app" is short for "application." The lat-
est cellphones have dozens of invaluable apps,
such as checking the weather in Minsk and leam-
ing Dick Cheney's current heart rate. What a brave
new world.

receives every year for the same services that
any city manager in any other little city in Pinellas
County receives, but he has done this for years and the
same old council gives him anything he asks for be-
cause they are afraid of him.
As far as annexation in his city is concerned, he
sends city employees out to promise the citizens the
moon only to get them into the city for the 12 percent
taxes on the electric bill each month, that goes into the
general fund promising to pave roads, take down
trees on private property, and better drainage.
The three properties that were added this week
through annexation need to check their electric bill
next month and see where they get the advantage of
paying 12 percent more each month forever.

Leader, August 5, 2010


I recently became the proud owner of a 27-foot
Coachman motor home.
And then the fun began.
Or, maybe that should be, when self-made dis-
asters began.
Until recently I thought of camping as a room at
a Marriott or Holiday Inn Express. It was my wife,
Patricia, who convinced me about the benefits of a
home on wheels. She did a lot of camping all over
Michigan in her younger years. I'm from Brooklyn,
N.Y., and there weren't many campsites in the city.
"We could take the dog," she said enthusiastical-
ly, pointing to our wrinkle-nosed pug. "We could
save money on hotels and restaurants."
I calculated that to make the RV pay for itself I'd
have to drive it every day until 2065. I'd be 124
years old.
So off to Lazy Days in Seffner we went. Thaf's
the granddaddy of all motor home dealerships. I
was teamed up with a salesman named Steve
Scialli, a fonner Lakeland cop, who introduced me
to everything from monster bus coaches to pull
toys that sleep one or two people,
I finally settled on a Class C Coachman that
came with everything, including a kitchen sink. It
also has a very thirsty V-10 engine.
I then spent a small fortune on bedding, kitchen
items, tools, even a wall clock that another RVer
said had no place in a motor home. The Camping
World store adjacent to Lazy Days drew me like a
magnet. Thirty minutes and too much spent
money later I walked out with lawn chairs, how-to
books and an assortment of gadgets.
Then came the first trip, to Ocala, that almost
mirrored the misadventures of Robin Williams in
the movie, "RV," thaf's about the escapades of a
vacationing family in a motor home. I managed to
get my hand trapped in the awning. I injured the
other when my ring got caught on the ladder. My


Thomas
M~ichalski


wife short-circuited the electric power with a defec-
tive hair dryer and I didn't empty the shower/sink
holding tank until it backed up.
Thanks to a fellow traveler, a man named
Stephen who was a college professor from Cana-
da, I learned about sanitation, electricity and un-
folding the awning without amputating anything.
The campsite manager thought my frustration
was quite humorous because I was unable to get a
picture on the TV. He pushed a button changing
the system from antenna use to cable.
By the end of the first weekend I was raising
and lowering the awning like a pro. I now can step
down from the RV and turn on the generator at
the same time. And I quickly discovered why
RVers store sanitary hoses in an enclosed rear
bumper. (They tend to stink after use.) I also
learned that the yellow Mercury convertible that
Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball used in the 1950s
movie '"The Long Long Trailer" in real life could not
have done the job.
RVers, and I'm a long way from being one until I
get more miles under my belt, are very helpful
people. Their motto is "Just ask" and they will
come up with answers. Every RVer, from owners
of tiny pull along to those with Greyhound bus-
size monstrosities, are willing to share their knowl-
edge and experience.
Lazy Days, unlike most large companies, did ev-
erything they said they would, including answer-
ing all my dumb questions ("Whaf's this button


I ne Mlcnalskils' new home on wheels

fof?") And I did.
Just call if you have a problem, a service man- Often.
ager said. Until next time ...

of where the big bucks of the city of Seminole are going.
Residents need to remember to vote and change the
faces on the City Council at every chance.

Plantamura is disappointing
Editor:
I'm writing in response to the article in the Seminole
Beacon dated July 20. As a former city of Seminole City
Council member, I must express my disappointment
with Councilor (Patricia) Plantamura's review of the city
manager, Frank Edmunds.
I honestly believe Ms. Plantamura has a personal
issue with Mr. Edmunds. Since she joined council she
has singled out Mr. Edmunds and has made it very
clear to me her attacks are personal. Ms. Plantamura
cannot make a distinction between the person (Mr. Ed-
munds) and the position (city manager).


In my five years of searing the residents of our city, I
have always found Mr. Edmunds to be nothing but
professional in the way he performed his responsibili-
ties.
I honestly believe Ms. Plantamura is a smart person
but if her attacks are her way of consensus building,
she is going to fail.
The other issue brought up in the article was a sug-
gestion by Councilor (Bob) Matthews to extend Mr. Ed-
munds' contract. I am on record of not being a fan of
long-term contracts. Mr. Edmunds is definitely an
asset to our community but the time to renegotiate any
ones contract should be in the final year of the existing
contract. In addition if Council decides to extend the
contract I strongly suggest the contract is updated to
today's standards.
A simple extension of a contract written 10 years ago
is not fair to the contract holder or to the city because
the labor laws have changed dramatically over the
years.

Praise for city manager
Editor:
As a resident of Seminole since 2007, I would like to
express my personal appreciation for the fine work ac-
complished by the City Manager, Frank Edmunds.
I was pleased to read that the majority of City Coun-
cil members also recently gave Frank Edmunds praise
for his accomplishments.
Being a private citizen, I have had concerns regard-
ing the city's future sustainability plans. I have also
been curious about Seminole's new Public
Works/Emergency Operations Center.
On more than one occasion, Frank Edmunds has
spent considerable time to answer my questions. I ap-
preciate the extra effort of this city's manager.

mously approved an $800,000
grant agreement with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection to be used toward the
estimated construction costs of
$2.56 million for two regional
alum stormwater treatment facil-
ities within sub Basins 2 and 7
of the Lake Seminole Watershed.
The management plan calls for
construction of six regional alum
treatment facilities. Two facilities
are currently under construction
and the bypass canal, the third
system, is scheduled to go out
for bid this fall. The fourth sys-
tem is scheduled for bid in 2011.
The final two, sub Basins 2


and 7, are scheduled to go out
for bid in 2012.
The purpose of the facilities is
to remove 50 percent of the
phosphorous entering Lake
Seminole from the 4,100-acre
urban watershed and to improve
circulation in the lake.
According to staff notes, the
project is "critical to restoring
water quality and beneficial
aquatic habitat in Lake Semi-
nole."
The project also is a key com-
ponent of a 2007 federal and
state approved plan and should
help meet mandated Total Maxi-
mum Daily Load requirements.


Design, permitting and con-
struction of the six facilities cost
almost $11 million.
Estimated annual operations
and maintenance cost is almost
$500,000. The cost will be split
between Pinellas County, 48
percent; city of Largo. 37 per-
cent; city of Seminole, 13 per-
cent; and the Florida
Department of Transportation, 2
percent.
The commissioners also ap-
proved the ranking of firms and
authorized staff to begin negoti-
ations with the No. 1 ranked
firm, BCI Engineers &r Scientists
Inc., Lakeland, for the Lake
Seminole sediment removal proj-
ect. Commissioner Neil Brick-
field voted no.
The estimated price tag for the


project is $16.7 million.
BCI will be responsible for
Phase 1 of the project: environ-
mental data collection, survey.
design and permitting with an
estimated cost of $700,000.
Phase 1 is expected to take 24
months.
Estimated cost for Phase 2 is
$16 million and includes the ac-
tual construction and dredging.
Phase 2 is expected to take 30
months and has a scheduled
completion date of Dec. 31.
2016.
The commissioners approved
a cooperative funding agreement
with the Southwest Florida
Water Management District to
pay half of the cost of Phases 1
and 2.
"'This is a tremendous amount


CLEARWATER Pinellas
County commissioners ex-
pressed frustration July 27 over
continued spending to keep Lake
Seminole up to required stan-
dards.
At the end of the day, the com-
missioners had approved action
on lake projects totaling more
than $30 million
Penny for Pinellas dollars, as
well as federal and state funding
and money from the Southwest

County sets tentative tax rates


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners
unanimously approved July 27 tentative millage
rates for fiscal year 2011.
The proposed countywide millage is 5.55 mills, in-
cluding the general fund, EMS and health depart-
ment. Countywide property taxes would be $575 for
a single-family residential property at the average
taxable value of $103,490. If approved, residents
would pay $1.58 a day for countywide services.
According to a report presented by John
Woodruff, county budget director, of the total
437,017 parcels on the property tax roll, 93 percent
are residential properties, and 62 percent of those
properties have homestead exemptions and are eligi-
ble for the Save Our Homes cap.
Some residents could see an increase in their tax
bill this year even though the value on their property
went down due to the Recapture Rule.
Woodruff gave an example using a house with a
market value of $203,000 in 2010. By subtracting
the $50,000 homestead exemption and the $40,600
Save Our Homes exemption, the taxable value of the
home would be $112,000. The taxes on the home
with the 2010 countywide millage rate of 5.45 would
be $613.
The same home with a market value of $174,375
in 2011 would see an increase in taxes due to the
recapture rule that limits the Save Our Homes cap
exemption to $8,940 and the increase in the EMS
millage rate. Countywide taxes for that property
would increase to $641.70.


On the other side, nonhomesteaded property
taxes would go down to match the market value de-
crease even though the millage rate increased.
The tentative MSTU millage rate for residents of
unincorporated areas of the county was set at
2.0857 the same as 2010. This millage is equiva-
lent to the millage rates paid by residents living in a
municipality.
The commissioners said no to a request by the
Public Library Co-op to increase the current millage
rate of 0.4437 to the 0.5 cap.
However, they did approve a request from the
Palm Harbor Recreation &r Library District to in-
crease the millage from 0.4378 to the "roll up
amount of 0.4914. The commissioners told mem-
bers of the district that final approval of the increase
would depend on public support, including people
who do not use the services.
The millage rate for the Feather Sound Communi-
ty Services District will remain the same at 0.5660.
No increase is proposed for the Pinellas Planning
Council with amillage of 0.0125.
Tentative millage rates were approved for the 12
fire districts administered by the commissioners. Six
of the 12 have proposed millage increases for FY
2011, including Clearwater, Gandy, High Point,
Largo, Safety Harbor and Tierra Verde.
Public hearings are scheduled on Sept. 7 and
Sept. 21 to approve the final millage rates and the
2011 county budgets. During budget hearings, the
commissioners can lower the various millage rates,
but cannot raise them.

patch on the left sleeve.
'Whhen the players come up to the plate to bat,"
said Penna, "they will be announced by name in
honor of a designated person of choice who either
died from cancer or is a cancer sur-
vivor."
Penna said Blue
Jays officials came
up with the idea at
the baseball promo-
tional meetings.
Major League Baseball al-
ready has a day it sets aside
Sin the spring for raising money
for breast cancer research.
"Wer decided why not encom-
pass all cancer instead of just
breast cancer?" Penna said.
The festivities will be hosted
by Channel 13 personality
Charlie Belcher.
Half of the proceeds from
the sale of the jerseys and all of
the funds from the silent auction will
go to the ACS.
Persons interested in donating items for the silent
auction or purchasing a jersey, should call Penna at

Spanish mackerel remain thick
in the area and targeting them
can be easy.
Whether you're fishing from a
boat or a pier, silver spoons
rigged with a trolling sinker allow
you to cover a ton of water in a
short amount of time.
If you're from a boat try chum-
ming with live bait to fire the
macks up and be sure to put out
a chum block to entice any other
predators in the area i.e. cobia,
which have been showing up

*r f ~


consistently lately.
Best spots would include the
Skyway fishing piers, the channel
markers inside Tampa Bay and
the artificial reefs 5 to 12 miles
offshore.
Persistent west winds had
made our protected inshore wa-
ters especially appealing this past
week. Redfish topped the list last
week; finding quality sized reds
really depends on whether or not
you can find the larger mullet.
Higher tidal stages have been


yield numbers of reds.
Pompano fishing usually
peaks this time of year and it ap-
pears this season is no different.
Area bridges such as the Tierra
Verde Bridge, the Miesner Bridge
and the Gandy are all hot spots
right now.
Anglers fishing the current ed-
dies on the down-tide side of the
bridge using half and three-
eighths ounce yellow Silly Willy
jigs have been able to catch a
limit of pomps fairly easy. Live


fiddler crabs and shrimp also will
produce, but most anglers prefer
the ease of the jig as they can
walk from piling to piling until
they find a school of pompano.
Drop the jig directly behind the
piling and jig it up and down er-
ratically throughout the water
column. If the bite is slow, try
scraping the pilings with a spade
in order to attract the schools.
Until next week, get bent!

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.
Fred Lemond, BP Cleanup Operations


BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes
keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the
coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared
photography. Once oil is found, they radio down to the 6,000 ships and boats
of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect the
oil. These are thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into
task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from as far
as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from
the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional
gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed more than 8 million feet of
boom to protect beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In
coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend
operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on
the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the
Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect but
we will do everything we can to 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

Leader, August 5, 2010


ST. PETERSBURG Fans of the History Channel's popular reality
show "Pawn Stars" may be surprised to leamn that Pinellas has its own
hometown version of the Harrsion family's famed pawn shop,
conveniently located in St. Petersburg's Kenneth City.
But McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is not a pawn shop, though
it boasts the same government licensing.
"The atmosphere is entirely different from conventional pawn shops,
said Jim Bartlett, an appraiser at the establishment. He has been
cmotble witn are wItr elev i i, maaie ,hcny n mch mper
The coffee is always on, and we even offer hot chocolate and tea."
History
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is a family-owned, family-
operated business that dates back to 1980.
"We were in the coin and jewelry business in Indiana until we
moved to Florida in 1992," said John McNeal. John and his wife, Laura,
opened 4th Street Antique Alley in 1993 as an antique mall with 50
dealers in a 10,000-square-foot showroom. Their mall was an outlet for
many other freelance antique, jewelry and coin dealers to display and
sell their merchandise. "In 2006, we decided to sell the mall and go back
to being freelance dealers. We moved to our airrent location in 2008."
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins does total estate liquidation
including autos and real property.
"Our staff consists of an auctioneer, a realtor, a gemologist and
jeweler, a certified appraiser for general antiques, an art
appraiser, sports memorabilia specialist, coins and stamps."
According to John, if it's an antique or collectable, McNeal Antiques
buys and sells it. "We love our jobs," John said. "We buy and sell gold,
silver, diamonds, coin, bullion and antiques, militaria and collectibles.
Selling to McNeal Antiques
In the current recession and with gold prices continuing to surge, a
number of businesses have sprung up recently trying to take advantage
of the situation.
"It's very confusing with all of the new 'We buy gold for Cash' stores
and out-of-town hotel buyers popping up everywhere," Jim said. He
warns prospective gold sellers that such outfits have no long-term
interest or concern for their alstomers' past, present or future business.
In some cases, the business may not even be licensed or qualified to
appraise the gold they're buying. "They feel no obligation to treat
customers fairly. They'll be on their way in a few days."


Jim went on to explain the difference between a local, family-owned
business like McNeal Antiques and the fly-by-night dealers, hotel-room
buyers and television scams and mail-in companies.
"At McNeal Antiques, we have three comfortable buying stations,
and a professional, courteous sales staff for jewelry, stamps and coins;
antiques and collectibles and everything we offer." Jim said that
McNeal Antiques also employs armed security real, off-duty police
officers. They offer expert jewelry and watch repair. "The appraisers
will display the items you bring in a tray, test or research the items in


and rare U.S. gold coins, mint sets, Morgan and Peace Dollars, books
and supplies.
"Come in and browse around," Jim said. McNeal Antiques, Jewelry
and Coins is bursting with rare, valuable and coveted items -
something for everyone, from the casual collector to the serious
connoisseur. "You're going to like it here."
What's in your safe deposit box?
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coin is best known for its zany
television commercials and its slogan What's in YOUR jewels; box?7
The business' newest campaign continues along the same lines.
Now, McNeal is asking l\\ll S 7711/our safe tieposit box?
Some people pay an annual fee of $100 to a bank to store family
heirlooms, doaxments, gold, silver coins and rare items. In some cases,
people may not even remember what they're safeguarding.
McNeal offers to meet customers at the customer's bank to evaluate
and make an offer at no obligation. Customers also may bring in
anything of value to the store and convert unwanted items into cash.
McNeal Antiques also offers:
Written Certified Appraisals For Insurance purposes, tax and
probate, inheritance distribution or divorce settlement
Estate sales McNeal Antiques will bid to buy one item or entire
estates from lawyers, banks, powers of attorney and the general public
for onsite sales,1liquidation or removal
House calls At no cost or obligation, representatives from
McNeal Antiques will meet with you or your family at home, a storage
facility or bank to disalss and evaluate your items for sale and make a
fair offer.
McNeal Antiques, Jewelry and Coins is centrally located at 6206 54th
Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Call 544-6464.
If you have an item and would like an appraisal, you may e-mail a
photo to McNeal Antique at antiquesetampabay.rr.com, using the

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 fonned 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 reputation not only for topping the
harts 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 "Whhere or When," Dion and The Belmonts earned their
place in the history books. Also appearing will be special guest

of them.
Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will
Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You've seen them in the
background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and
eyes closed. They're not heroes they're the other guys.
But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz

knows and, frankly, it's a little overwhelming. What's a guy supposed
to do when a girl tells him his hair smells like watermelon or wants
him to sit in a tree for the spectacular view? There's just no telling
what Juli will do next, and Bryce is one guy who'd rather be safe than
sorry.
Though disappointed by Bryce's unwillingness to see things her
way, or even to see the things in life she finds most meaningful, Juli
continues to give her potential dreamboat the benefit of the doubt.
Until those doubts stack up so high that she finally thinks maybe she
was wrong about him.
It's just about the same time Bryce starts to think maybe he was
wrong about her, too. But is he too late?
The coming-of-age romantic comedy "Flipped," from director Rob
Reiner, takes Bryce and Juli from Grade School to Junior High,
through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they
make the discoveries that will define who they are and who they are
to each other.


'Flipped'
Genre: Family
Cast: Madeline Carroll, Rebecca De Mornay, Anthony Edwards,
John Mahoney and Penelope Ann Miller
Director: Rob Reiner
Rated: PG
When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it's
love.
Bryce isn't so sure.
Beginning that day, and for the next six years, young Bryce (Callan
McAuliffe) does everything he can to keep his outspoken wannabe
girlfriend at arm's length ... which isn't easy since they go to the
same school and live across the street from each other.
Smart, dreamy, independent and willing to stand up for what she
believes in, Juli (Madeline Carroll) is different from anyone else he

Genre: Comedy
Cast: Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, James Cann, Gabriel Macht

In 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores,
and the world-wide-web was a new found discovery.
Businessman Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) had the perfect life a
beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies.
And then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby
(Gabriel Macht), two ingenious but troubled men, who had invented
the way adult entertainment is sold over the Internet.
When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds him-

A controversial issue lies at the
heart of a new comedy being
staged by West Coast Players.
"Regrets Only," by Paul Rud-
nick, runs through Aug. 15, at
the West Coast Players Theatre,
21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater.
Performances are Friday and sat-
urday, 8 p.m. Matinees are sun-
day, 2 p.m. General admission
tickets are $18 a person or $15
for seniors, students and mem-
bers of the military. All seats are
reserved. For reservations, call
437-2363 or visit www.weplay-
ers.org.
Directed by Ginny Fraebel,
"Regrets Only" is a comedy of
manners set in a modern Man-
hattan penthouse on Park Av-
enue. Both marital vows and the
bonds of friendship are tested
when circumstances force a pow-
erhouse attorney, his unrepen-
tantly socialite wife and a leading
fashion designer to examine their
views on marriage, friendship,
wealth and influence.
As is standard in the genre,
"Regrets Only" effectively satirizes
the manners and affectations of
the Manhattan aristocracy, infus-
ing its primary players with just
enough pomposity and posturing
to make them comical caricatures
of New York's upper crust. Rud-
nick wisely holds back his
sharpest barbs, though: In this
