Flag program gets

BIG-C's support
Members of the Barrier Islands Gov-

July 28 to pass a resolution supporting a
new pedestrian flag program along Gulf
Boulevard.
The flags, which will be in a container
at all crosswalks, are to be deposited in
another container once pedestrians cross
the street.
By passing the resolution, the BIG-C
supports restocking of the containers by
beach communities when the flags dis-
appear. There will be no cost to the mu-
nicipalities.
The flags will be installed within the
next two weeks by Pinellas County and
Florida Department of Transportation
workers.

Attorneys answer questions on oil claims


By BOB McCLURE

TREASURE ISLAND Two attorneys who liti-
gated cases surrounding the 1993 oil spill in
Pinellas County told a group of business owners
Aug. 5 to investigate the claims process through
BP but be careful.
Clearwater attorneys Andra Dreyfus and
Wally Pope answered questions surrounding the
claims process during an oil forum at the Bilmar
Beach Resort organized by the Tampa Bay
Beaches Chamber of Commerce.
Both said the process is just beginning and
litigation could be a long, tedious journey lasting
many years before results will be seen.
"First, investigate the claims process and
make an individual decision as to what you
want to do," said Pope. "It's a long, drawn out
process if you go the litigation process. But at-
tack it on both fronts."
Pope said BP is under no legal obligation to
pay claims and Dreyfus said any payouts at this
point should be considered a public relations
move by BP.
"You have to keep in mind we have no oil
here," said Dreyfus. 'That forms a limitation on


what people can expect to recover in damages.
State law says no oil, no real claim."
She also said be careful when it comes to fil-
ing a claim with BP.
"If you collect 200 bucks now when you're en-
titled to $250,000 later is not smart," Dreyfus
said. "Also, if you go through the (claims) pro-
cess and get some money, don't sign (waivers on
future damages) because you don't know what's
out there (in the Gulf of Mexico and what its im-
pact will have in the future on Pinellas beach-
es)."
She said it could be that next year is worse
than this year.
Dreyfus said business owners should start
keeping track of where losses are coming from
and documenting those facts. She said to be
prepared for a long battle with BP when it comes
to proving the losses.
"BP is going to argue that a good reason (for
the losses) is because the economy is slow,"
Dreyfus said. "Month by month, (hotel owners)
should keep track of what people are telling you
when they call up to cancel."

CLEARWATER- Imagine driving
U.S. 19 from 49th Street to Sunset
Point Road and back without ever
stopping for a red light. A few years
from now that dream will become a
reality, not because the lights will be
timed better, but because there won't
be any lights.
"U.S. 19 has long been an integral
part of our transportation system in
Pinellas County" and traffic planners
are constantly trying to improve it,
said Douglas Gaska, vice president of
UBS Financial Services. Gaska's firm
hosted an Aug. 4 seminar at Bright
House Networks Field about the proj-
ect. He then turned the microphone
over to Florida Department of Trans-
portation officials to explain the 2.7-
mile "U.S. Highway 19 corridor
project" that is starting now and is ex-


pected to be finished in the fall of
2014.
"Basically, this will fill in a missing
gap" of signal-free travel between 49th
Street and Sunset Point Road and ex-
pedite the movement of the 92,000 ve-
hicles that travel that stretch of road
each day, said FDOT official Jason
Dahlvik. Overpasses will be built at
the Belleair Road and Seville Boule-
vard intersections with U.S. 19, and
the existing 200-foot-long overpass at
State Road 60 (Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard)
will be replaced with one nearly 600
feet long that has four northbound
lanes, three southbound lanes, and
turn lanes on both sides.
The project is starting a year ahead
of schedule, thanks to stimulus
money received from the federal gov-
ernment. It is expected to take 700

Commission OKs charter
amendment for ballot
LARGO City commissioners gave final ap-
proval Aug. 4 to include a charter amendment on
the Nov. 2 ballot that provides for municipal elec-
tions to be held in conjunction with countywide
elections.
Under the amendment, four-year terms for
commissioners who are elected to seats 5 and 6
will begin in November 2010; seats 3 and 4 and
the mayor, November 2012; and seats 1 and 2'
November 2014. The amendment will require an
election in 2011 to elect seats 1 and 2 to three
year terms.
City commissioners proposed the amendment
to lower the costs of elections. The cost for a city
stand-alone election is $70,000, compared to the
cost of $6,000 to $22,000 if elections are done in
conjunction with a countywide election.
Commissioners voted 6-0 to put the amend-
ment on the ballot; Commissioner Robert Murray
was absent.

City OKs funds for development
LARGO City commissioners said Aug. 2 they
support plans to commit funds for the develop-
ment of a 14-unit complex on 7.44 acres as a
second phase of the Belleair Place Apartments.
Plans call for Belleair Place 11 to be built direct-
ly south of Belleair Place 1 to replace a severely
dilapidated, closed mobile home park and six sin-
gle-family houses in the Clearwater/Largo Road
Community Redevelopment District. The Rich-
man Group of Florida Inc. is the developer.
City officials say the project provides housing
for families with special needs and low-income
household and redevelops foreclosed property.
The activity also serves as a stimulus in the area
of job creation for the construction industry and
supporting industries.
The developer has identified several sources of
funding for the $18.9 million project, such as
$9.4 million in county tax exempt bonds. City
Housing Manager Matthew Anderson said Pinel-
las County officials have been enthusiastic about
the project.

The Richman group is asking city officials to
approve the allocation of a long-term, low-interest
loan of $1.2 million for the project. The annual
income compliance reporting for the loan will be
handled by county officials and the developers'
expense.
Commissioner Mary Black said the Richman
Group has done an excellent job on the first
phase of Belleair Place.
"It's something they haven't built and let go.
They maintain it, and it's a very nice area," she
said.
TI e occupancy rate of the Belleair Place I units
is 96 percent, Anderson said.

MANAGER, from page 1A

"Thanks for your dedication to
the city," Commissioner Woody
Brown wrote.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier
also said Craig's strengths are in-
tegrity and leadership.
'Whorks with staff in the areas -
continues to bring pride and pos-
itive thinking to Largo." she
wrote, referring to his strengths.
"In these tough economic
times, the (city manager) needs to
stay connected to the community
in order to know what the resi-
dents want," Crozier wrote in
suggestions for improvements.
"Largo is the wonderful place
is due to your leader
ship. Even under stressful finan-
cial situations, you and your staff
have identified positive and fo-
cused on making Largo a great
community," Commissioner Gigi
Amtzen wrote.
"Mr. Craig always represents
the commission's position in a
positive manner. He understands
the strengths and weaknesses of
those who report directly to him.
Mr. Craig demonstrated his lead-
ership and direction by choosing
Chief (John) Carroll as the new
police chief," Commissioner
Robert Murray wrote.
Commissioner Curtis Homes
wrote that he had insufficient in-
teraction at this time with the city
manager to justifyi suggestions for
improvement but will at a later
date or in person. Holmes took

People who have yet to make plans for hurricane
season need to get it done.
So says Sally Bishop, Pinellas County's emergen-
cy management director.
Now that hurricane season is moving into the his-
torically busiest months, residents who don't have a
plan should make one. People who do have a plan
should make sure everything is ready, Bishop said.
She said people should be asking themselves.
"Am I really prepared? Am I ready if a storm were to
show up next week?"
Another question people should be asking is "Do I
know my evacuation level?"
Bishop said many areas in the county had
changes to evacuation zones this year and more
people are in evacuation areas than ever before.
Where you live and the type of structure you live in
makes the biggest difference when deciding what to
do if a hurricane should threaten, she said.

Should I stay or should I go?
People who live in a nonevacuation zone and
structures other than mobile homes have to make a
choice of whether they will stay in their home or
leave the county. Bishop said people should use
their own judgment based on good knowledge.
which includes knowing that your house is hurri-
cane-ready and you have a room in the interior of
the house to stay in while the storm passes
through.
People who plan to stay in their home need to
make sure they have plenty of supplies. Bishop ree-
ommends enough food and drink to last one week.
'Wer could be cut off (if the bridges and airport are
damaged)," she said. "It could take days for supplies
to get to us. People can't live much longer than
three days without water. In the hot Florida sum-
mers, people must have water."


People also should remember their own special
needs, medicines, foods and first aid supplies.
Suggested items that should be included in any
hurricane kit can be found at www.TBNweekly.com.
Look for the Hurricane Guide link on the left-side
menu.

The strength of the storm
Another factor to consider when deciding whether
to stay or go is the strength of the storm, she said.
Hurricane plans could vary depending
on the storm.
Bishop said people could decide to
stay until Pinellas County issues evacua-
tion orders for level E, which would be
done if a Category 5 or strong Category 4
hurricane were forecast to affect the local
area.
"It's a logical progression," she said.
People who live in evacuation zones A
or B or live in a mobile home will need to
evacuate every time a Category 1 or Sally Bisho
stronger storm threatens. Evacuation
zone C also would be included in an evacuation
order if a Category 2 were forecast.
Evacuation zone D would be added to the order if
a Category 3 were forecast. Above a Category 3, a
level E evacuation would be ordered, which would
include all areas of the county except nonevacua-
tion zones.
Generally, emergency management experts order
evacuations for one level higher than the forecast at
the time the order is issued due to the possibility of
a hurricane strengthening before it makes landfall.

Hurricanes are no big deal
Some county residents believe that hurricanes
are no big deal because the storms that passed
though in recent years didn't cause major problems.
"Not even a Category 1 storm has passed through


Pinellas in recent history," Bishop said.
A Category 1 hurricane, a minimum hurricane,
has winds of 74 to 95 mph. When a hurricane pass-
es through an area, unlike a thunderstorm, those
high winds blow for "hours and hours and hours,"
Bishop said. "T~hey say it sounds like a freight train.
The winds can really get on your nerves. And you
hear things as they break and crash. It's hard for
anyone to imagine it unless they've experienced it."
However, Bishop said the biggest threat during a
hurricane was storm surge, not the wind.
"Most deaths attributed to hurricanes
have nothing to do with wind," she said.
"It's water. It's storm surge."
She said storm surge is not something
you watch happen, or can sand bag against
or even outrun. She said it is more like
what happens when a dam breaks sudden-
ly and a wall of water comes down to take
out everything in its path.
"It happens fast and without warning,"
LP she said.
Flooding is another hazard. Water can
come up inside homes and cover electrical outlets,
making a home unsafe. Water also can cover roads.
flooding them out making them unsafe for residents
and emergency vehicles.

Evacuation plans
People who live on the barrier islands, in low-
lying areas and mobile homes should plan to evacu-
ate as soon as Pinellas County Commissioners give
the order, if not sooner. Evacuating is easier the
more time you have, she said.
The biggest decision to make is where to go.
"You can't wait until the last minute and the
storm is on the way to try to find a place in a hotel
or motel," she said.
People in Pinellas also have to consider the only
way out is through another county that could be


evacuating its residents. In addition, the farther
away people travel, the longer it will take to get
back.
People who live in mobile homes or evacuation
zones could plan to stay with family or friends who
live in nonevacuation zones, especially for Category
1 or Category 2 storms.
"There's plenty of high ground in Pinellas for ev-
eryone to go," Bishop said.
However, county-provided shelters should be
used only if you have no place else to go.

Survivor or victim
Bishop said every resident of Pinellas has a choice
to be a survivor or to be a victim.
'A survivor plans well and holds their own," she
said. "A victim is totally reliant on others and will
suffer during an emergency.
"If a storm shows up next week, time will be up.
You won't be able to decide when it's still easy
whether to be a survivor or a victim. Pinellas County
has a message 'Surviving the Storm ... It's Every-
one's Responsibility' because there's not enough
government on the planet to take care of everyone.
Bishop said while she understands that some
people don't like to plan for emergencies, such as a
hurricane, because it's easier not to worry about it
or they think because no hurricanes have hit Pinel-
las in a long time or any of the other excuses people
in her profession hear every day, she feels better
when she knows she's ready.
"I can't relax until I know I'm as prepared as I can
be," she said. "My mind says I sure better do it now
while the sun is shining."
The alternative is standing in line at the store try-
ing to get what you need when a storm could be
hours away, she said.
'You have more choices if you prepare now," she
said.

August through October is the peak season for
tropical storm activity in the Atlantic basin.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration, 78 percent of tropical
storm days, 87 percent of minor hurricane days
and 96 percent of major hurricane days occur
during the three months that make up the peak
season. Maximum activity occurs in early to mid-
September.
NOAA's experts, as well as the hurricane team
at Colorado State University recently updated their
season's forecast. The consensus is 2010 could
have above-average activity and could even set
records.
"All indications are for considerable activity dur-
ing the next several months," said Gerry Bell, lead
seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA's Climate
Prediction Center. "As we've seen in past years,
storms can come on quickly during the peak
months of the season. There remains a high likeli-
hood that the season could be very active, with the
potential of being one of the more active on
record."
Less than 16 weeks remain before the end of the
season on Nov. 30. The season began on June 1.
Bell announced NOAA's updated forecast during
a teleconference on Aug. 5. Federal scientists say
there is a 70 percent chance of 14 to 20 named
storms forming between June 1 and Nov. 30. The
number includes the first three storms of the sea-
son: Alex, Bonnie and Colin.
NOAA says of the 14 to 20, 8 to 12 could be


hurricanes with winds of 74 mph or higher. Of the
14 to 20, four to six could be major hurricanes,
Category 3 or higher, with winds of 111 mph or
more. Alex was the first hurricane of 2010 and the
only one thus far.
Expert hurricane forecasters Philip J. Klotzbach
and William M. Gray from Colorado State Univer-
sity released mid-season predictions in an Aug. 4
report. The report forecast 18 named storms with
10 of the 18 strengthening into hurricanes. Of the
10, five are forecast to become major hurricanes,
Category 3 or above.
NOAA's expert and the Colorado hurricane team
base their predictions on several atmospheric and
oceanic factors, including the formation of La Nina
in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Bell said La Nina fa-
vors lower wind shear over the Atlantic basin,
which allows storm clouds to grow and organize.
Other factors are above-normal temperatures in
the tropical Atlantic and Caribbean and the multi-
decadal signal, which is a set of conditions that
since 1995 has favored the formation of tropical
weather.

Landfall probability
NOAA doesn't forecast landfall probabilities, but
the Colorado experts do.
Klotzbach and Gray give a 50 percent chance of a
major hurricane making landfall on the U.S. East
Coast, including the Florida Peninsula. The long-
term average is 31 percent.
They give odds of 49 percent that a major storm
will come ashore on the Gulf Coast from the Florida
Panhandle west to Brownsville, Texas.


Hurricane Alex, the first of the 2010 season, hours before making landfall just south of oeTcxa syo d~e
Mexico. Alex is the first hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin since 1995, and it is the second strongest june
hurricane on record.


"The probability of a major hurricane making
landfall along the U.S. coastline is 75 percent com-
pared with the last-century average of 52 percent,"
Gray said.
Gray and Klotzbach will be updating their fore-
cast every two weeks through the remainder of the


season, which ends on Nov. 30.
The forecast through Aug. 18 is "very active."

OIL CLAIMS, from page 1A


Ala., who is familiar with the process in his hometown, said
business owners should be prepared to go through several
adjusters before getting to the one that will handle a claim.
He said claims under $5,000 are settled quickly and claims
over $5,000 will likely require an attorney.
State Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, said the $5,000
level is true.
"According to my colleagues (in the Florida Legislature in
the panhandle), if the claim is under $5,000 they're writing
checks," he said. "And the closer you are to Pensacola
Beach the better your chances. They're paying some large
claims but you have to document it well. "
Among the local business operators on hand was Don
Mead who opened a barber shop in November in Treasure
Island.
'Wer heard June, July and August was the tourism sea-
son and we just don't have any tourists," said Mead. "In
April, May and June we had some, but then none."
Tim Tolliver, who operates Madeira Beach-based Sun
Host Resorts, a beach vacation rental business, with his fa-


their Larry Tolliver, said his business has lost $35,000 in
rentals via cancellations from April 20 to July 31.
'Wer manage units for the owners," said Tim Tolliver. "Whe
need to find out if we need to file for (the condo owners) or if
they file for themselves."
Interestingly, Tolliver said the day BP workers were able
to cap the oil leak there was a noticeable change in business
"and the phone started ringing."
Frishe said the state Legislature will soon be looking into
ways to go after BP.
'We're~ going to be looking at criminal and civil penalties
we can impose for a company that doesn't reside in Florida,"
he said. "Hopefully, we'll have some type of statutory re-
sponse in September."
For businesses interested in filing a claim with BP, call
800-440-0858.
To check on a claim after receiving a claims number, call
800-573-8249.
To file a claim online, go to www.bp.com/claims or
www.fl-response.com.


Pope noted that Florida's anti-pollution law gives resi-
dents and business owners the right to recover damages re-
lated to pollution.
"But the way things stand now, it would be tough to
argue you've been damaged," said Pope. 'You've not been
physically invaded by oil. You've been affected more by
rumor."
When asked if a class-action lawsuit would have more
clout than an individual suit, the answer was no.
"Class-action is not a panacea," said Pope. "It's just a pro-
cedural device that allows you to handle a claim together."
Dreyfus added that "If there is damage here, class actions
would likely be merged with others into one and it would be
heard at a more central location to the issue, such as Mobile
(Ala.) or Houston."
Dreyfus said she has not heard "of anyone receiving a
dime yet" from BP.

witz said. "We review it every

cated. Water, sewer, electric.

driving in the northern section of
the project area will begin next

that there will be a lot of noise
and vibration.
'Wer try to do things proactively
and let people know" via message
board and other means about
driveway changes and other
things that will affect them.
Blasewitz said.
"The is no economic assistance
for this or any other FDOT proj-
ect," FDOT official Lori Buck
replied when a longtime mer-
chant asked if he would be com-
pensated for the business he will
lose while the street is tom up in
front of his store. She suggested
that he minimize the impact by


informing his customers in ad-
vane oewhd nt wri that with
crosswalks so few and far be-
tween, people living west of U.S.
19 would be tempted to jaywalki
across the highway to catch a
northbound bus, and those living
east of the highway would illegal-
ly cross it to catch a southbound
bus. He and another resident
wanted pedestrian overpasses or
underpasses to allow pedestrians
to safely cross the highway, but
FDOT officials said those are not
envisioned in the project.
Another suggestion was for
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Au-
thority buses to have "loop
routes" whereby northbound and
southbound buses would divert
from their routes to pick up pas-
sengers on the opposite side of
the highway. Clearwater Com-
missioner Bill Jonson, who at-
tended the meeting and serves on
the PSTA board of directors, said
that that idea would run counter
to PSTA's goal of having faster
bus service, but PSTA officials
would study the problem and try
to find another solution.
Blasewitz said that when FDOT
first posted a sign with a tele-
phone number (530-7600) people
could call for information about
the project, he received 50 to 60
calls per day.
"People were very positive
about the project," he said.

of $103,490, the average in Pinellas County.
Though commissioners are likely to get flak if they
raise the tax rate, they have a few alternatives. They
are looking at a $13.8 million gap between projected
revenues and expenditures. That's substantial.
Consequently, they are considering an increase of
users fees to bring in $1.4 million, an increase in the
tax rate to bring in $5.2 million and a decrease in re-
serves by $7.2 million.
Commissioners are being asked by staff to mull over
the options for stabilizing the financially strapped fire
and EMS operations in the next several weeks.
That's prudent, but, with the start of the new fiscal
year only two months away, commissioners must take
decisive action, and if that means raising the millage
rate at the risk of angering some constituents, so be it.
Public safety shouldn't be compromised for the sake of
appeasement.


County commissioners face the painful task of trying
to come up with more revenue to finance their fire and
EMS budgets without making drastic cuts that affect
response time and service levels.
Because of declining property values, the economic
downturn and tax-cut measures have hamstrung their
budget, county officials have discussed a variety of op-
tions at length in the past couple of years to protect
the quality of emergency services. Opinions have var-
ied, as local governments and fire districts have
weighed in on proposed solutions, sometimes creating
friction among agencies.
An increase in the tax rate, as proposed by staff,
seems inevitable. To balance the EMS budget without
depleting the reserves, county staff is recommending a
millage rate increase from .5832 to .6860. The increase
would mean an additional $10.64 a year in taxes for a
single-family residential property with a taxable value


The staggering increase in foreclosures has taken a
toll on the courts.
However, help is on the way; the Sixth Judicial Cir-
cuit, which includes Pasco and Pinellas counties, is
taking advantage of stimulus dollars to possibly re-
solve up to 800 mortgage cases each week.
Under a new program, more than 24,000 of the
backlogged cases may be resolved within a year.
Judicial officials say the real estate crisis has placed
a burden on judges, delaying action on other civil liti-
gation.
The $317,752 appropriated to the Sixth Circuit by
this year's Legislature for the program is part of the
federal stimulus dollars that each state receives.
It's simply a matter of paying retired judges to han-
dle the cases. In essence, it's cutting red tape. Hard to
find fault with that concept.


I have a dream, a nightmare. In it, I'm either the
plaintiff or the defendant (it makes little difference)
in a courtroom ruled over by a woman named Ju-
dith Sheindlin the notorious Judge Judy of TV
fame.
During the dream I am subject to being hounded,
insulted, criticized, ridiculed and made a laughing
stock of by Judge Judy. She may or may not allow
me to state my case. In front of 10 million TV view-
ers I may be made a jackass of, either through my
own behavior or because I offended the judge for
any of eighty-five reasons.
These might include not being dressed properly;
not standing up straight; smiling at the wrong mo-
ment; interrupting the judge or the other litigant;
slurring my words; telling a lie; telling the truth; or
just being on the face of the earth.
The worst part of my nightmare is not the torture
I undergo at the hands of the judge. It is the realiza-
tion that I voluntarily agreed to appear on the Judge
Judy show and display my dirty personal laundry to
the entire world in exchange for ... for what? Fifteen
minutes of foul-smelling fame? The chance to be
awarded a few hundred bucks? All at the hands of a
person whose application of the law (although gen-
erally fair) does little to cancel out her rudeness and
cruelty.
Judy Sheindlin, 67, was bomn in Brooklyn. She
passed the New York bar exam in 1965, and had a
long career in the criminal and family courts of New
York City. She retired in 1996, but by then her no-
nonsense courtroom behavior had earned her wide
attention, including a segment on the CBS program
"60 Minutes." She had also written a book or two.
one of them with the enchanting title, "Deon't Pee
on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining."
She began her own CBS courtroom show in
1996. Since then her program has been nominated
thirteen times for Daytime Emmy awards. Her cur-
rent contract calls for her to receive $45 million a
year. Her personal wealth has been estimated at
$95 million.
Her adoring fans (mostly women) delight to see a
bona fide tyrant in action. Judge Judy demands air-
tight decorum, not just from the litigants but from
the courtroom audience (some of whom are hired to
give the appearance of a packed courtroom). No one
(except the judge) speaks unless spoken to. A trou-
blesome audience member may be thrown out.
Judge Judy will upbraid audiences for their laugh-
ter or other response even when she herself has
triggered the outburst with one of her witticisms.


Judy's basic mindset is to doubt the veracity of
anyone who testifies before her. She admits to hat-
ing liars, and will often render a one-word verdict -
"baloney" against someone she suspects of lying to
her. She has conceded that she sometimes sets out
to cause embarrassment and punish people who
have acted badly.
Some viewers tune in to the show because they
like to see wrongdoers publicly humiliated. Unfortu-
nately, many of the litigants are not lawbreakers.
They are simply human beings with private dis-
putes. As far as I can tell, their only "crime" is being
stupid enough to take their cases to Judge Judy
rather than to one of the other TV courtrooms
whose judges believe in settling cases without treat-
ing the litigants like dirt.
The Judge Judy program is actually an arbitra-
tion hearing, not a court of law. The award limit
(paid by the show's producer) is $5,000. Each liti-
gant receives $100 for his/her appearance, plus
hotel and travel expenses and $35 for each day of
production time, The show is taped in Los Angeles.
The only other TV judge whose long-term fame ri-
vals Sheindlin's is Joseph Wapner, whose show
"T~he People's Court" ran from 1981 to 1993. In eval-
nating Judge Judy's performance as a representa-
tive of the legal profession Judge Wapner pulls no
punches. Among his adjectives for Judge Judy are
"discourteous," "abrasive," "rude" and "arrogant."
And how, pray tell, does Judge Judy respond to
Judge Wapner? Thusly: "My parents taught me
when you don't have something nice to say about
someone, say nothing. Judge Wapner was absent
on the day that was taught."
Can you comprehend that level of hypocrisy com-
ing from a woman whose stock in trade is to flood
her own courtroom with acrimony, insults and deri-
sion? Indeed, that is chutzpah of a high order. We
should be grateful that judges like Judith Sheindlin
are an exception, not the rule, in American court-
room proceedings.

White elephant of the gulf

Where are the Friends of the Biltmore and Save
the Biltmore folks now?
After vociferously campaigning to save the Belle-
view Biltmore Hotel they are as scarce as hen's
teeth. All the while the "Whhite Queen of the Gulf'
has turned into the white elephant of the Gulf.
Full disclosure: I live across the road from the
hotel and look at the decomposition daily.
Some folks want to blame the Town of Belleair for
the fact that the renovation has not begun, when in
fact the town issued seven variances and approved
the project presented by Legg Mason. As a matter of
fact the town has also extended the deadline for
pulling permits for the hotel as well as extended the
deadline for fixing the roof for one year.
Let's not lose sight of the fact that the Belleview
Biltmore Hotel is a private enterprise and not part of
the town's Parks and Recreation department.
Some folks want to blame the litigants who
brought lawsuits against the hotel owners which
delayed the project. The courts ruled in favor of
Legg Mason on both lawsuits. In May of 2008, a edi-
tor from the St. Petersburg Times wrote: "T~he econ-
omy is struggling, the credit markets are tough, gas
prices are high, tourism is flagging, and someone
could still appeal the commission's variance deci-
sions. Legg Mason may be the savior we were wait-
ing for, but we shouldn't breathe easy until the
construction is under way."
The economic problems in the country started
long before the lawsuits were filed. Maybe the plans
to renovate the hotel were too complicated and
grandiose.
In the meantime demolition by neglect continues,
the town continues to lose tax dollars as well as
water/sewer fees and property values are declining
with no plans in place to begin renovation.
Maybe it's time for the Friends of the Biltmore
and Save the Biltmore to resurface and instead of
carrying placards that read "Save the Hotel," they
might carry ones that read "Renovate the Hotel
Now." It would be a shame for this situation to
mimic the Vinoy Hotel in St. Petersburg and sit
boarded up and decaying for years to come.
I think Mayor Gary Katica was correct, we were
sold a bill of goods.

An outrage in New York City
Editor:
We cannot allow a mosque to be erected on
the hallowed acreage of lower Manhattan's
Ground Zero. It would not be appropriate. And it
would be an offense to the many Americans who
died in the 9/11 attack.
There are a hundred mosques in New York
City, so why does one need to be built here? The
Muslims plan to build a $100 million mosque.
Will this be a shrine to the 9/11 terrorists they
hail as martyrs? Would it be a proclamation of
victory? They plan to dedicate the mosque on
9/1 1/11i, the tenth anniversary of the attack.
We cannot permit this. Many have already
spoken against this in a recent rally in New York
City. Where was the press?

Writer shows ignorance
Editor:
My husband and I are avid readers of The
Pinellas Park Beacon. Today, Aug. 6, we read an
editorial named "'Think to yourself' that referred
to an article published on July 15 about a lady
who formed a group for mothers who have lost
children. The ignorance and lack of regard
shown by Eileen A. Niece is inexcusable. Obvi-
ously she is a man-hating or should I say
human-hating ungrateful moron who has never
lost a child.
We are great-grandparents and cherish all our
children, grandchildren, and great-grandchil-
dren. However, both my husband and I, in sepa-
rate marriages, have lost a child. There is no
pain like that. Even today, and for me it has
been over 36 years, for my husband 34 years,
neither my husband nor I will ever forget my lit-
tie boy, stillborn at 6 months, or his little girl,
who died shortly after birth at 7 1/2 months.
Someone should educate this person to the real-
ities of life.
To the lady that started the loss group, our
sincerest condolences.
To Eileen Niece, grow up and educate yourself
instead of talking or writing senseless, thought-

"Some of my ideas for savings include carefully evaluating the
costs of nonessential teacher training, costs of administrative
meetings, the expense of Blackberrys and other communication de-
vices, and the costs of nonessential administrative travel expenses.
I would also consider an independent outside audit of our system. I
believe there are companies that conduct outside audits in private
industry, deriving the cost of the audit from savings achieved."

What would you want to change if you were elected?
Hunsinger said he would change standardization and strength-
ening of county-wide discipline, increase transparency through
open communication in the decision making process at all levels of
school operations, and refocusing the energies and resources to-
ward the needs of the classroom, where the learning takes place.

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing
issue for the district?
Employee morale and student discipline.

Why should the voters vote for you?
"After I retired from public education full time, I found that I still
had a strong desire to contribute to the education of our Pinellas
children," Hunsinger said.

Peggy O'Shea (incumbent)
What is your background in education?
O'Shea was elected to the Pinellas County School Board in 2006,
served as vice-chairwoman in 2008 and chairwoman in 2009.
"Prior to my election, I was appointed by the governor to chair
the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas, the agency which adminis-
ters state and federal programs for school readiness and Florida's
voluntary pre-kindergarten," O'Shea said.
She has also served on the following committees and task
forces for the district: Choice Reform Task Force; Bi-Racial Advi-
sory, Planning Committee for the Business, Economics and
Technology Academy; Controlled Choice Task Force; Career
Planning Task Force; School advisory councils for Gibbs High
School, Palm Harbor University High, Carwise Middle, and High-
land Lakes Elementary. She was also a volunteer tutor, and sub-
stitute teacher.


What do you consider some of the key things you have done while
on the board?
''This is my first term on the board, and it has been eventful,"
O'Shea said. "These three and a half years have seen the end of
race based assignment in the schools, a new plan for student as-
sliegnment, the appoin ment osf a dewsu eitendehnt, and unapbrece
treat each issue with an open-mind and a willingness to work with
everyone to make decisions in the best interest of our students."

How would you help trim the bu gt?
"As a board, we have made every effort to avoid cuts that directly
impact the students," O'Shea said. "W~e are looking at the projected
future cuts in an effort to plan ahead. I and the entire board have
looked at programs, measured their effectiveness to determine if
the expenditure is warranted, we have eliminated nonschool based
positions, and looked at the cost and function of each department.
The re-zoning of the elementary schools eliminated approximately
200 bus routes and the related costs. It has been a time to work
differently, maximize the impact of our resources, and plan accord-
ingly.

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing
issue for the district?
"Success for all our students," O'Shea said. "To get there, we
have to look at their needs for the future and provide high quality
and relevant education. We have to continue to increase gradua-
tion rates, provide career education in the form of vocational and
technical opportunities aligned with the jobs of their future, ensure
a competitive edge for our college-bound students, maintain disci-
pline, and recruit and retain high quality teachers and staff."

Why should the voters vote for you?
"I am passionate about the importance of education and will con-
tinue to work to provide the best for every student," O'Shea said. "I
believe in being open and honest with the community and will con-
tinue to be an impartial listener. I accept the challenges that we are
facing and will work hard to solve them, but will never use them as
an excuse for not providing the best for our children.

Nine vie for four

Compiled by ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

There are nine candidates on the ballot for four open seats for
Pinellas County School Board. The following candidate profiles are
compiled from surveys sent out to each candidate. Coverage contin-
ues next week.

District 2
Terry Krassner
What is your background in education?
Krassner received a Bachelor of Arts in education at the Universi-
ty of South Florida in 1973, and a Masters degree in educational
leadership in 1984 from Nova Southeastern University.
Krassner had a 35-year career with Pinellas County Schools, in-
cluding being a fifth grade teacher at Lynch Elementary, reading
teachers at Pinellas Park Middle and Morgan Fitzgerald Middle, as-
sistant principal at Starkey Elementary, and principal at Westgate
Elementary.
"My family has lived in Pinellas County and been a part of the
Pinellas County School System for over 50 years," Krassner said.
"Both of my parents were educators and my four siblings and I at-
tended Pinellas County Schools. My sisters and I have all been edu-
cators in Pinellas County. Two of my children have graduated and
two are currently attending Pinellas County Schools."

In this time of major budget cuts. how would you help trim the
budget?
"With the school district's current financial challenges and
need to improve overall program effectiveness, hiring of an out-
side auditor is necessary," Krassner said. "Wasteful spending
must be cut. One glaring example is the nearly $500,000 spent
each year for 1,000 employee cell phones. As a principal, I paid
for my own cell phone because I felt that it should not be a
school board expense. We need to audit every department to be
certain that the district is operating efficiently and effectively.
Eighty-five percent of the district's budget is personnel so it is
important that we audit all positions that are not directly im-
pacting children to determine if the position is necessary. Be-
cause of reduced enrollment, we may need to look at the
closing of some schools. Spending that directly contributes to
student learning should be spared."

What would you want to change if you were elected?
"'The Pinellas County School Board should direct school district
staff to be more proactive and focused on the long-term," Krassner
said. "Before staff recommendations come before the board, they
should be vetted by parents and stakeholders through a consistent
two-ea comnctions pocesss. Pnet sd ned sa res1 ctful and
als, makes decisions with an understanding of the community's
point of view and involves all stakeholders. We need to believe in the
parents and volunteers who can make a difference in our schools if
they are given more ways to be heard and opportunities to con-
tribute. I would also like to see more school-based decision making
rather than top down decisions.

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing
issue for the district?
"Student safety," Krassner said. "We need to re-examine and im-
prove handling of disruptive student behavior, student assignment
plans, busing plans and school starting times to maximize student
safety."

Why should the voters vote for you?
"As someone seeking to be your representative on the school
board, I view the job as one where I am responsible for contributing
to the overall success of our children, teachers and schools," Krass-
ner said. "Now is the time for seasoned, experienced leadership to
advise and work in collaboration with our superintendent and
school personnel as well as our entire community on critical policy
decisions for the highest possible success of our students."

Fonda Huff
What is your background in education?
Huff earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics and physical ed-
ucation, and she has her driver's education certification as well.
She has a master's degree in education leadership and an educa-
tion specialist degree in school counseling.
Huff has been in education for a total of 17 years. She taught
mathematics, physical education, and coached girls' sports at Brew-
er Middle School in west Fort Worth, as well as taught drivers edu-
cation in the summers. Since moving to Pinellas County 11 years
ago, she has mathematics, and coached junior varsity volleyball at


open county Sc
Northeast High School. This past year she was an instructions staff
developer for math and science at four high schools where she ana-
lyzed student data with the principals and helped develop a plan for
higher student achievement.

How would you help trim the budget?
"I would do an audit at all levels and reassign some of the person-
nel at the administration level that are not needed and combine
many positions," Huff said. "I would also offer an incentive plan that
would replace 100 teachers with over 29 years of experience.
"With the six converted fundamental schools that I propose, the
budget for schools would immediately be decreased. Depending on
the size of the newly established fundamentals one less assistant
principal would be needed. The schools would only need a part time
social worker, less campus monitors, and no transportation expens-
es. "

What would you want to change if you were elected?
"(A) Immediately I want to establish an attendance policy that re-
quires seat time," Huff said. "(B) I would also transform two high
schools into fundamental schools one in South County and one in
North County. I would like to create two middle school high school
combos one in the northern part of the county and one in the mid
part of the county. ... (C) I want the magnet schools adapt the fun-
damental concepts with the parent involvement and attendance
policies required by the fundamental schools. (D) I want to establish
more alternative schools to where the repeat offenders and 'no toler-
ance' offenders are reassigned so the teachers at the schools can
teach. (E) I would cut many of the extra personnel at the adminis-
tration building instead of cutting the teachers that work directly
with the students. (F) I would eliminate the shortened day on
Wednesday and would not start the elementary students after 9
a.m. They will be too tired to learn after 2 p.m. Many parents will
pull their students from public schools because they cannot afford
before and after school care. (G) I would try and know what is going
on in our schools. It was horrible to hear that school board mem-
bers had no idea about what was going on at John Hopkins or
Gibbs High School just two years ago."

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing
issue for the district?
"The two most pressing issues at this time is re-establishing the
attendance policy," Huff said. "When the high school students real-
ized that there was no attendance policy, they took advantage of the
situation. The other major issue is what has happened with the bell
schedule of the elementary students. There was no communication
or thought on what this would do to a family. Elementary students
do not need to start to school before 8 a.m. or after 8:30 a.m. If we
do no tcorc this, we will lose these students to home schooling or

Why should the voters vote for you?
"Voters should vote for me because I have solutions to many of
the problems that the county faces," Huff said. "I am not afraid to
think outside of the box to find a common sense solution to a prob-
lem. I strongly believe that as a school board member that I must
represent the people that voted me into the position. This would
mean that I would communicate with the public before making a
major decision that would affect so many. For example, I would not
have changed the elementary bell schedules without considering
what it would do to the families involved. I have been a single par-
ent that knows what it is like to juggle schedules. With my grand-
daughter now in the elementary schools, I want the security to
know that she is safe and learning at school and around other chil-
dren that their parents care about them and expect them to learn
also."

District 3
Greg Hunsinger
What is your background in education?
Hunsinger has lived in Pinellas County for 59 years and graduat-
ed from the Pinellas County School system, received his Bachelor
of Arts degree from the University of South Florida, and received
his Masters of Arts degree from Nova Southeastern University. He
was then a Pinellas County public schools middle school teacher
for more than 35 years, teaching at Perkins Elementary, Osceola
Middle School, and is currently a substitute teacher.

How would you help trim the budget?
"All efforts should be made to preserve the integrity of the class-
room learning environment," Hunsinger said. "Some savings can be
derived through attrition in nonclassroom related positions. A thor-
ough review needs to be conducted to determine nonessential ex-
penditures at all levels of the educational process.

Carson Aho

At Tutterow, the faculty firmly believes that a child's self-esteem,
coordination and poise are enhanced through the art of dance.
Several studies have even shown that participation in the arts helps
children improve test scores. In fact, according to Americans for the
Arts, a national public service advertisement campaign, research has
indicated kids who are involved in the arts are:
More likely to be recognized for academic achievement
More likely to be elected to class office within their schools
More likely to participate in a math and science fair
More likely to win an award for school attendance
Aside from the academic benefits, though, dance offers plenty of
intangible advantages, too: It evokes our humanity, inspires joy and
edifies our emotions.

ing a culture that's been in existence for 50 years."
Julie Bond, with the Center for Urban Transportation Research
at the University of South Florida, said her office has contracted
with the Florida Department of Transportation on a one-year edu-
cation component. Bond, who helped implement a similar pro-
gram in Salt Lake City, will make a number of presentations
around the area to educate residents on the use of the flags.
She said Florida has the highest pedestrian fatality rate in the
nation, which makes the program must for the area.
"It will be a good, additional aid for visibility as you try to cross
a major corridor," said Bond.
Robin Grabowski, president of the Tampa Bay Beaches Cham-
ber of Commerce, said her organization would assist Bond in ed-
ucation efforts by placing flyers on the flag program in
infonnation packets for visitors and rack cards at welcome cen-
ters.
"I'm always interested in making my town and the beaches
safe," said Queen. "If it works, great."
Queen said he has been seeking ways to improve pedestrian
safety since 2003 when two people were killed trying to cross
Gulf Boulevard at 171st Street.
"Education plays a key role," Queen said. "Motorists need to
pay more attention to driving and get off their cell phones. And
pedestrians need to use their eyes and common sense more.


BELLEAIR BEACH Members of the Barrier Islands Govern-
mental Council voted unanimously July 28 to pass a resolution
supporting a new pedestrian flag program along Gulf Boulevard.
The $25,000 state program, which was recently approved by
the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, will pro-
vide yellow flags for pedestrians to wave as they cross Gulf Boule-
vard at 39 crosswalks from Clearwater Beach south to the
Bayway.
The flags, which will be in a container at all crosswalks, are to
be deposited in another container once pedestrians cross the
street.
By passing the resolution, the BIG-C supports restocking of the
containers by beach communities when the flags disappear. There
will be no cost to the municipalities,
The flags will be installed within the next two weeks by Pinellas
County and Florida Department of Transportation workers.
"It's a mid-block program," said North Redington Beach Mayor
Bill Queen. "It won't be at major intersections where there would
be the distraction of headlights."
The key to the program's success, he said, would be education
of both motorists and pedestrians.
"It's going to be a work in progress," said Queen. "Whe're chang-

District 6
Brian Hawley
W/lhat is your background in education?
Hawley earned his bachelor's degree in business administration and
earned his masters of education degree from the University of South
Florida in 2006.
"I have been an involved educator my entire adult life," Hawley said.
"At 31, I have taught in the secondary classroom for going on 10 years
and at the college level for three years. I have been an active member
of the teachers union and acted as the faculty representative for my
colleagues at Largo Middle."

How would you help trim the budget?

Hawlsirs.slt e illio t ope to save m eyni ee are eat s e whr
the money is going. One area that could be trimmed is teacher train-
ing. In times of financial urgency, only the necessities of professional
development should be paid for. The county should also pressure the
state to allow for more flexibility between the operating portion and the
capital outlay portion of the budget. These funds should be fluid in
times of financial urgency. Instead of hiring new teachers, administra-
tors and teachers on assignment should be moved back into the class-
room. I would also be open to a pay cut for the highest salary earners
in the county (those making over $80k). Overall though, these finan-
cial problems need to be addressed at the state level. New sources of
income need to be found and lobbied for. The state needs to properly
fund education! The last option would be to raise local taxes, and I
would avoid this option at all costs, and I believe the current board has
been too quick to pull more from the local taxpayer."

W/lhat would you want to change if you were elected?
"Efficiency The county needs to do a better job of strategic plan-
ning from all aspects," Hawley said. "It changes its mind every couple
of years and often follows the latest trends down dead ends or in cir-
cles. A good example of this is the busing/zoning issue. Every few
years they switch the zoning rules and then a few years later decide
they made a mistake and try to switch back. This only costs time and
money. This same charade plays out in testing, training, technology.
textbooks, you name it,
"Accountability The current trend has been to focus on teacher ac-
countability, but we also need to put the spotlight on parents and stu-
dents as well. We need to put in place a system that encourages and
rewards parents and students to be involved and value the whole edu-
cational process. As it stands, the system is too concerned with statis-

ties and standardized test scores. We have lost sight of the fundamen-
tal reason for education.
"Honesty/transparency Better efforts should be made to involve
the public and teachers in the decision making process of important
issues. This means disseminating information to them in an open
timely manner and then listening to their input. The recent school
time change and earlier early release Wednesdays are examples of the
public's opinion/voice being for the most part ignored.
"Representation The board and administration are publicly funded
positions and every effort should be made to represent the people of
the community.

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing issue
for the district?
."It is difficult to narrow it down to one issue, but the overall disillu-
stonment of the constituents in the education process needs to be ad-
dressed," Hawtleey said.ateace modr len tt an a -tdm 1w Stu en

"I bring an analytical approach to dealing with problems that has been
lacking on the board. I am honest and will not let personal bias or po-
hitical agenda sway what is right for education in this county. I do no
mind dissenting or fighting the current if I think there is a poor deci-
sion being made. I want to involve the public in the decision making
process.

Linda Lerner (Incumbent)
W/lhat is your background in education?
Lemner has a bachelor's degree in education from Lesley College, and
a master's degree in special education from Columbia University. She
was a special education teacher for New York City schools from 1966
to 1969, and was the co-founder and director of education support
services at Resource Center for Women in Largo from 1977 to 1986.
She served on the Pinellas County School Board since 1990.

W//hat do you consider some of the key things you have done while on
the board?
"Accessibility I have been a consistent advocate to make our sys-
tem more accessible to parents, teachers, students, and other citi-
zens," Lemner said. "I successfully advocated for the need to hold some
school board meetings at night. Decisions are made at these meetings,
and citizens should have the opportunity to attend and address the

board. I successfully advocated for the need to audiotape all Board
Workshops and make these tapes available to the public.
"Safety I have been a consistent advocate for a safe learning envi-
ronment for all our students and employees. I successfully advocated
for alternative educational programs for chronically-disruptive stu-
dents. I supported allocating funds for safe schools including the pur-
chase of video cameras in schools and radios for buses.
"Success for all students I continue to advocate for quality pro-
grams ensuring that all students' needs are met whether after gradu-
ation they are bound for careers, the military, post-secondary
education or college. My experience as a former special education
teacher helps me to effectively advocate for the continual improvement
of our exceptional education programs. "Accountability I have taken
a leadership role in ensuring higher expectations and achievement for
all students. I have worked for more valid accountability for school dis-
tricts and schools throughout the state of Florida. I represented all
Foi dlaR hool Board mem ers as a Commissioner on the Florida
Scho Rorm and Accoun ablity Commission."

How would you help trim the budget?
"Pinellas has cut $104 million over the past four years and this year
must cut $26 million as well as provide the $14.4 million needed to
meet class size mandates," Lemner said. "Pinellas will receive $418 dol-
lars less for each student in state funding this year as compared to
2007.
"I support the decision to achieve the $14.4 million by transferring
reading, math and science coaches and other certified instructional
employees back to the classrooms.
"Budget cuts should have the least possible negative impact on stu-
dents. I support the current proposals to accomplish some of the $26
million budget gap by reducing contracted services, reducing some
transportation costs, staff reductions, reducing current employee con-
tracts, and requiring some administrators to substitute one day a
month. Some mandated unpaid leave days, which need to be bar-
gained, have to be considered. It is proposed that higher paid employ-
ees have more leave days.
"T~he potential $53 million shortfall next year is a very difficult situa-
tion which necessitates planning as soon as this year's budget cuts are
finalized."

Other than the budget. what do you think is the most pressing issue
for the district?
I'This is a time of increasing mandates and accountability with de-
creasing budgets," Lemner said. "It is necessary to continually assess
how to provide more resources to schools with the highest number of
struggling students while trying to meet the need of all our students."

Do you ever wonder why your
pet gets a more thorough physi-
cal exam than you do? It is be-
cause your pet's veterinarian
wears many professional hats.
Your pet's veterinarian is also
your pet's dentist, psychiatrist,
cardiologist, radiologist, anesthe-
stologfist, surgeon, ophthalmolo-
gist, and much more. That is a lot
of knowledge that is required of
your pet's doctor. Now add sever-
al species to that knowledge. Tak-
ing your pet to one doctor and
one location for all of these health
care services is a major conven-
ience and requires an equally ed-
ucated staff to provide
exceptional quality service for you
and your pet.
Have you ever asked yourself
why your doctor visit cost is $25
and your pet's doctor visit was
more? In most cases, what you
pay is only your co-pay because
you have health insurance. Look
at the statement your insurance
company sends you to see what
your care actually costs you.
Today there are so many insur-
ance companies that sell pet
health insurance, but not many
people take advantage of this op-
portunity. It can really help when
your pet is sick or has an acci-
dent. Some policies will even
cover wellness care like vaccines
and dental cleaning.
When you pay for veterinary
products or services don't forget


human health care we are sent to
another location for imaging pro-
cedures. Digital X-rays allow us
to pick up subtle changes that
wouldn't be as visible if we used
X-ray film processing. The newest
anesthesia monitoring equipment
enables your pet's doctor and
staff to closely monitor your pet
making anesthetic procedures
much safer.
laboratory equipment Hay-
ing an in-house laboratory can
enable your pet's veterinary team
to get blood results within 20
minutes to diagnose your pet's ill-
ness that much quicker. Even if
the blood is sent to an outside
laboratory you get results the
next day. When was the last time
you had a blood test done and
found out the results the next
day? Usually you get a call a
week later. When you got those
results, how many of you actually
got to speak to your doctor about
those results? In veterinary
health care you have more access
to speak directly with your pet's
doctor.
*Staff The more educated,
experienced and efficient the vet-
erinary staff is, the better quality
of service your pet will receive.
and the more expensive it will be
to employ this kind of staff. If
your pet's veterinary hospital is
unable to keep exceptional staff
and are always hiring new staff.
this will interfere with the quality



Beautiful Baby




This precious pet photo winner
is Baby, a 3-year-old female kitty
with a lot of the Burman breed
in her. The Burman is known as
the "sacred cat of Burma." Baby

fiddle with her owner's
computer discs. Baby lives with
Gail Wood of Largo. Baby wins

of service provided. This is be-
cause the staff has to use valu-
able time to constantly train the
new employees which means
more waiting time for you and
your pet. In order to provide ex-
cellent care for your pet, there
has to be enough staff to do it.
Wouldn't you feel more at ease
leaving your pet at a hospital
where the staff knows you and
your pet's name and the majority
of their staff have been there for
years? Don't forget that the li-
censed staff is required to keep
up on the most current trends in
veterinary medicine by earning
continuing education credits.
*Pharmacy How many of you
could walk into a pharmacy
nowadays and get your prescrip-
tion filled within 10 minutes?
Having a well stocked pharmacy
and staff available to provide this
service is another convenience
you don't find elsewhere.
As you can see, your pet's vet-
erinary team is providing quality
and convenience that can't be
found mn the human health care
field. This quality and conven-
ience is what you must remem-
ber when looking at your invoices
for your pet's veterinary health
care.

to realize that there is so much
more behind the charges you pay
for. Below are some insights into
the quality and convenience in-
corporated into veterinary fees.
*Walk-in appointments If
you walk into a veterinary hospi-

worked into the schedule and be
seen. That is usually not the case
with most physicians' offices.
*Technology The newest
technology like digital X-rays and

vided to your pet. Digital X-rays

Redfish numbers are increas-

More and more reds can be tar-
geted on the shallow grass flats
throughout the county. This
week's new moon will give us
two good tidal stages in which
to target redfish.
Midmorning incoming tides
will have the schools of redfish
hanging near mangrove shore-
line points as they await the
flood stage of the tide that will
allow them to push way back

thing about that tantalizing side
to side motion that the reds
can't refuse. Not to mention
they'll often push a wake from
several yards away as they
make their approach toward
your bait, a sight that always
makes your adrenaline pump.
Late summer offers us the
opportunity to target fish that
can often be larger than the an-
gler pursuing them. Big sharks
and tarpon are a big part of
what Florida fishing is all


about.
Whether you're fishing day or
night, these bruisers can often
be found roaming the same wa-
ters. Deep backwater holes
along the Intracoastal Waterway
as well as many spots inside of
Tampa Bay are holding some
nice tarpon and plenty of bull
sharks.
Large cut baits such as mul-
let or mackerel fished on the
bottom will attract both species.
Look for the tarpon to be
rolling whenever the wind goes


slack; don't chase the fish
around too much just set out
baits where you've seen a couple
of fish roll and wait for the bite.

LARGO Largo High School has a new dance
team, the LHS Solid Gold Dancers.
The team, founded by Coach Sarah Beth Ale-
man and Captain Brittany Schoenauer, held try-
outs and picked their eleven member squad last
May.
The LHS Solid Gold Dancers were represented
by Brittany Schoenauer and Haley Knapp at a
Universal Dance Association varsity high school

through July 18.
The dancers won trophies for superior perform-
ances and a 110 percent award for standing out


from the other teams.
The team has been invited to perform with UDA
in The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the 2011
Capital One Bowl pre-game show and the National
Dance Team Competitions televised on ESPN and

Celebrate your victory with

Take some time out to re-

You've dug yourself into
a deep hole. To get out of

A little goes a long way,
Taurus. Give a little, and

problem at home will take
some digging. Start with
the most obvious, Gemini.
An auto issue resurfaces.
Fix it once and for all.


Cancer
June 22 July 22
Change will come only if
your criticism is construc-
tive, Cancer. Speak from
the heart with wisdom. A
new face in your inner cir-
cle proves inspiring.
Leo
July 23 August 22
There is a solution, but
you must be willing to
work with others and hear
them out. Multiple heads
are better than one on this
issue, Leo.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
You cannot lose, Virgo,
so go ahead and take
some risks. An act of faith
puts life into perspective
and paves the way for you
to make a major decision.
Libra
September 23 October 22
Psst, Libra. Your body is
telling you something. Are
you listening? If not, you
better. Your health could
be at stake. A design proj-
ect goes well.

This week is all about
togetherness. Whisk your
family away for the week-
end, Scorpio. A financial
resolution comes with
strings attached.

Broken dreams do not
stay broken for long.
Someone you least expect
makes a bold move at
work. Cheer them on to
victory, Sagittarius.

The Belmonts, named after Belmont Avenue, in the heart of the

years the group earned a reputation not only for topping the charts

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera).
A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has

amazing story of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love mn
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting

will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.

Ruth Eckerd Hall welcomes Natalie Merchant Aug. 24


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

CLEARWATER Natalie Merchant will per-
form Tuesday, Aug. 24, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eck-
erd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road.
The versatile singer-songwriter-musician
who first earned fame as the leader of the al-
ternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs recently
released her first studio album in seven
years. "Leave Your Sleep," from Nonesuch
Records, is the culmination of six years of re-
search and collaboration. In the artist's own
words, the two-disc set is the "most elaborate
project" she has ever completed "or even
imagined."
"Leave Your Sleep" is a collection of songs
adapted from poems selected by Merchant
including pieces by both well-known and ob-
scure writers.
In a press release issued by Sacks & Co.,
Merchant discusses the making of "Leave
Your Sleep."
"I decided to set poetry created by other
writers to music," Merchant said. "I chose
works by both well-known and obscure
poets, ranging from anonymous nursery
rhymes and lullabies to poems by British
Victorians, early and mid 20th Century


Americans, and a few contemporary writers.
Ogden Nash, E.E. Cummings, Robert Louis
Stevenson, Christina Rossetti, Edward Lear,
Gerard Manley Hopkins and Robert Graves
are among the most well known of the
group."
The poems inspired vastly different musi-
cal settings with themes that range from hu-
morous and absurd to tragic, romantic and
deeply spiritual.
It took Merchant a full five years of metic-
ulous research and writing to fully realize
"Leave Your Sleep." In gathering material,
she found herself drawn to learn more about
the poets who inspired her.
"Over time my curiosity about the lives of
the poets that I had included in my antholo-
gy grew," Merchant said. "So I read biograph-
ical accounts and letters, searched archives,
and contacted heirs, executors, or the poets
themselves in an attempt to know more
about my co-writers. Much of this informa-
tion is included in the 80 page book that ac-
companies the collection of music."
In addition to this new method of creating
lyrics, Merchant also stretches out musically
on "Leave Your Sleep" by working with a va-
riety of artists.


Recording sessions included contributions
from the Wynton Marsalis Quartet, Medeski
Martin and Wood, The Fairfield Four, The
Chinese Music Ensemble of New York, mem-
bers of the New York Philharmonic and The
Klezmatics.
'The sessions were recorded in live ensem-
ble settings to capture a fresh and sponta-
neous energy," Merchant said. "They were
some of the most magical experiences I've
ever had making music."
This tour will be Merchant's first major
outing in seven years, too. Merchant and her
eight-piece band will perform new material
as well as favorites from throughout her ca-
reer. While serving as lead singer and pri-
mary vocalist of 10,000 Maniacs, Merchant
recorded some of her best known hits, in-
cluding a cover of "Peace Train," 'These Are
Days" and "Because the Night."
Her first solo effort, 'Tigerlily," released in
1995, produced the singles "Carnival," "Won-
der" and "Jealousy." She followed with three
additional studio albums, including "Ophe-
lia," "Motherland" and 'The House Carpen-
ter's Daughter."
Tickets range from $35 tp $60. Call 791-
7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com.

decades after their first concert together in front of the multitudes at
Woodstock, Crosby, Stills and Nash take to the road again for three
months of dates in the United States. CSN's music became a comer-
stone of rock and roll with their self-titled 1969 debut LP, now one of
Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." "Deja Vu," another
"500 Greatest," followed the first album from the group's four-man
line-up with Neil Young. Ever since, through changing times and vari-
ous configurations, Crosby, Stills and Nash have continued to tour

recorded between 1968 and 1971, "Demos" spotlights destined-to-be-
classic songs later heard on CSN's group and solo titles. The disc

four months before the song came out on the group's self-titled 1969
debut LP. Other rarities include seminal takes on "Almost Cut My
Hair," "Chicago," "Love The One You're With," "Sleep Song" and "Long

OPENING, from page 1B


'Animal Kingdom'
Genre: Drama and crime
Cast: Guy Pearce, Joel Edgerton, James
Frencheville, Anthony Hayes, Ben Mendelsohn and
Jacki Weaver
Director: David Michod
Rated: R
Welcome to the Melboume underworld.
Following the death of his mother, 17-year-old
Joshua Cody (James Frencheville) moves in with his
hitherto estranged family, under the watchful eye of
his doting grandmother, Janine "Smurf' Cody (Jacki
Weaver), and her three criminal sons the Cody
boys.
Eldest son and armed robber Andrew "Pope"
Cody (Ben Mendelsohn) is in hiding from a gang of
renegade detectives. Middle brother Craig (Sullivan
Stapleton) is a successful but volatile drug dealer,
while the youngest Cody, Darren (Luke Ford), naive-
ly follows his elder brothers' lead. Just as Pope's
business partner and best friend, Barry Brown (Joel
Edgerton) decides that he wants out of the game,
recognizing that their days of old-school banditry
are all but over, tensions between the family and the
police explode.
J finds himself at the center of a cold-blooded re-
venge plot that tumns his family upside down and
which throws him directly into the path of senior
homicide detective Nathan Leckie (Guy Pearce).
'Leb n
Genre: Foreign, drama and war
Cast: Oshri Cohen, Itay Tiran, Yoav Donat,
Michael Moshonov and Zohar strauss
Director: samuel Maoz
Rated: R
The First Lebanon War June 1982.
A lone tank is dispatched to search a hostile town
that has already been bombarded by the Israeli Air


Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and
unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of love in
Bali. Based on an inspiring true
story, "Eat Pray Love" proves that there really is
more than one way to let yourself go and see the
world.

'The Expendables'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: sylvester stallone, Jason statham, Jet Li,
Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, steve Austin,
Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Rated: R
The only life they've known is war. The only loyal-
ty they have is to each other.
They are the Expendables: leader and master-
mind Bamney Ross (Stallone), former SAS blade ex-
pert Lee Christmas (statham), hand-to-hand
combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons
specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert
Toll Road (Couture), and precision sniper Gunner
Jensen (Lundgren).
Living life in the fringes of the law, these hard-
ened mercenaries take on what appears to be a rou-
tine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to
infiltrate the south American country of Vilena and
overthrow its ruthless dictator General Garza (David
Zayas). But when their job is revealed to be a sui-
cide mission, the men are faced with a deadly
choice oeb ehtmight deem their souls ... or de-
stoy thi rteho oe.

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


Photo courtesy of SONY PICTURES CLASSICS
Oshri Cohen, left, stars as Hertzel and Itay Tiran as Assi in "Lebanon."


Force. what seems to be a simple mission gradually
spins out of control.
Shmuel the gunner, Assi the commander, Herzl
the loader and Yigal the driver are the tank's crew,
four 20-something boys who have never fought in a
war and are now operating a killing machine.
Though trying to remain brave, the boys are pushed
to their mental limits as they struggle to survive in a
situation they cannot contain, and try not to lose
their humanity in the chaos of war.


Writer-director samuel Maoz's raw and visceral
film is based on his own experiences as a 20-year-
old novice soldier serving in the Israeli army during
the 1982 Lebanon war. Using his own vivid recollec-
tions to bring audiences inside an Israeli tank dur-
ing the first 24 hours of the invasion, Maoz restricts
the film's action entirely to the tank's interior and
shows us the outside world only as the four young
soldiers themselves see it through the lens of a
periscopic gun sight.

/ grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything / 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
You may have heard that oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf.
But every morning our spotter planes and helicopters continue to
search for oil off the coast, heading to areas previously mapped
with satellite imagery and infrared photography. If oil is found, they
radio down to the ships and boats of all sizes that are supporting
the cleanup effort and working to collect the oil. These are local
shrimping and fishing boats organized into task forces and strike
teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from around the world.

We have recovered more than 35 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 millions of
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 $3.9 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.
