Clearwater opens

downtown marina
The new marina includes 126 boat
slips, 1,700 feet of overnight space for
visitors, and 700 feet of space for day-
time visits and special events, with day-
time space being free. There are still
plenty of slots open, which range from 30
feet to 55 feet, costing $9 per foot for res-
idents or $10.50 per foot for nonresi-
dents. The facility also includes 24-hour
security, restrooms, showers, laundry fa-
cilities, electricity, and a pump-out serv-
ice, as well as parking.
"It's going to help revitalize the whole
downtown and Clearwater area," said
Clearwater City Councilman George
Cretekos. "... (It will provide) opportuni-
ties to help develop our downtown with
the restaurants we're trying to put in and
retail. Marinas have always been a cen-
ter for activity, whether you're talking
about here in the states or in Europe."

LARGO City commissioners voted 4-3 Sept. 7 to
award a proposal to a vendor to operate the library cafe
over objections that the offer didn't meet the minimum

Three proposals were received by the bid deadline,

Foreclosures, tax

deed sales to go

online in October
By SUZETTE PORTER

More than 15,000 foreclosures were filed in Pinellas County
in 2009, and in 2010, an average of 1,000 are coming in each
month.
The increase in activity led to a decision by Pinellas County
Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke to take advantage of re-
cent changes in state law that allow clerks of the court to hold
electronic sales, said Deputy Clerk Myriam Irizarry.
Pinellas County contracted with Realauction of Fort Laud-
erdale to conduct sales through two separate websites,
www.pinellas.realforeclose.com for foreclosure sales, and
www.pinellas.realtaxdeed.com for tax deed sales.
The daily online foreclosure sales begin on Oct. 4, and the
monthly tax deed sales begin on Oct. 20. Realauction will pro-
vide online training and orientation sessions for bidders dur-
ing September. Complete instructions will be available online
at the two websites.
Irizarry said staff from the clerk's office met with some of
the people who she termed "typical bidders" and tried to incor-
porate their concerns into the process.
She said several clerk's offices around the state already
were using electronic sales.

Boys and Girls

County celebrated the opening of
its spruced-up facilities Aug. 27

and cotton candy.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of
the Suncoast Inc., Pinellas Park
Chapter, first established in
1959, is in its final stages of ren-
ovating the well-used old struc-
ture at 7790 61st St. N. The
event last month was an oppor-
tunity for the club to show off the
revamped building and new
amenities to the community that
supported it, as well as to the
children it serves.

tumultuous. There was a lot of

Briefs
Pedestrian traffic enforcement continues
LARGO Police Chief John Carroll said in a city report that for Au-
gust, 399 citations or warnings were written during the ongoing Pedes-
trian Enforcement Campaign.
"Jaywalking/angular crossing" infractions were again the highest
recorded violation with 176 warnings or citations written during the
period. Eighty-seven pedestrians "disobeying the traffic control de-
vices" also were given citations or warnings.
Largo police will plan to use their share of grant dollars received for
this endeavor to pay for 40 hours of additional policing each week for
the next seven months.
Age of Aquarius gala set for Sept. 25
LARGO The business community is rallying to support Partners N
Progress as it presents the 14th Annual Gala.
This year's event, The Age of Aquarius, will be held Saturday, Sept.
25, at the Largo Cultural Center.
'We are really pleased that so many generous companies have al-


ready committed to sponsor our event. We couldn't do it without them
and really appreciate their support," said Judy Hall, president of PNP,
in a news release.
"Everyone in the community is getting on board this year," said
Danny Lehan, chairman of the gala committee. "Some of the donations
are in kind and these are crucial to our success."
A silent and live auction will be a big part of the fundraising effort
for the evening.
"Last year we had such great prizes, we made over $5,000 on the
combined auctions," said Sue Bordeaux, chairman of the auction com-
mittee. "It will be difficult to top last year, but with our corporate spon-
sors I know it will be another success."
Several businesses are choosing to be cash sponsors of the evening.
The money raised by this and other events promoted by PNP goes to
provide art experiences in the community, primarily at the Largo Cul-
tural Center. The organization is the producer of the children's series
at the center.
'Theatrical performances, designed for youngsters, and scholarships


to theater camps are two of the programs supported by PNP," said Ann
Palumbo, manager of the cultural center. 'Without the funding from
PNP, we would not be able to provide this important service for the
students. Keeping the ticket prices reasonable for all of the shows has
been another result of PNP's efforts over the years."
For more information on the line-up for this season, visit
www.largoarts.com.
Watch for advertisements, sponsored by Tampa Bay Newspapers,
for more details. For information on how to get involved with this
event, call Danny Lehan at 385-8917.

Buildings bolster
By SUZETTE PORTER

The year 2004 was a wake-up call for Floridians and residents of
Pinellas County.
The alarm began with Hurricane Charley, a Category 4 hurricane
forecast to make landfall near the mouth of Tampa Bay on Aug. 13. In-
stead, the storm took an unexpected turn to come ashore just north of
Captiva, well south of Pinellas. Maximum sustained winds were 150
mph.
The storm's eye wall hit Punta Gunta and Port Charlotte creating
massive destruction. Charley continued on a path of devastation
through central Florida before exiting the state near Daytona Beach on
Aug. 14 as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds
just over 86 mph.
Before hurricane season ended that year, the state also had weath-
ered Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.
Since that time, government officials and emergency response ex-
perts have studied the lessons learned during rescue and recovery ef-
forts following the storms. Pinellas County began work to hurricane
harden its buildings, updated hurricane plans and expanded its shel-
ter capacity, provided more training for its staff and reached out to
help its residents prepare.
In 2007, the county began the design phase of a new public works
operations building and vehicle storage building that could withstand
a Category 5 hurricane.
A grand opening ceremony for those two buildings on Aug. 12
brought together a number of officials for a tour of the newly complet-
ed facility located at 22211 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater.
County Administrator Bob LaSala touted the fact that the buildings
were completed almost a month ahead of schedule and 10 percent, $4
million, under budget.

Council approves city
employee raise
PINELLAS PARK The City Council unanimously
agreed Aug. 26 to raise nonunionized city employees'
wages by 2.5 percent, bringing them in line with
similar raises already negotiated with employees in
police and fire department unions.
The raises were approved despite an initial short-
fall in the upcoming, fiscal-year budget of $3.9 mil-
lion, which will be made up by tapping into the city's
reserves and possibly increasing the tax rate to com-
pensate for decreased property values. The current
draft of the city budget states that the pay raise
amounted to about $597,000 worth in salary pay.
The pay raise is in direct response to negotiated
contracts with the city police unions, which included
a 2.5 percent increase in salary, and the contract
with the firefighters union, which included a 3 per-
cent increase, said Dan Katsiyiannis, city budget ad-
ministrator. Giving nonunionized employees a
similar raise was only fair, he said.
"City council likes to treat all employees really the
same in terms of raises," Katsiyiannis said. 'They
recognized the fact that we've got good employees
here. In fact, they're regularly complimented by the
public."
So far, the city has not laid off any of its employ-
ees or used any of its contingency fund, despite the
recent economic downturn that has caused many
other local governments to make major cuts in their
payrolls or increase taxes. Instead, Pinellas Park has
removed positions from the budget as employees re-
tired or left the city on their own accord. The elimi-
nated positions over the past three years amount to
59.5 full-time employees.
"We've become a lot more efficient in order to pro-
vide the same amount of service," Katsiyiannis said.
However, with property values still falling, the city
is still expected to come up short in property tax rev-
enues for the next fiscal year. Staff is recommending
a tax rate increase to partially compensate for the
lowered revenue and the use of general fund re-
serves to make up the rest.
Under this recommendation, the city property tax
rate currently at about 4.55 mills, or $4.55 per
every $1,000 of taxable property value would in-
crease to 5.11 mills.

Sunset Beach residents
seek court order
TREASURE ISLAND Circuit Court Judge Antho-
ny Rondolino will hear arguments Sept. 16 for a writ
of mandamus against two city of Treasure Island of-
ficials in a continuing lawsuit between residents of
Sunset Beach and the city.
Writs of mandamus are used to force proper en-
forcement of zoning ordinances by public officials.


CITY, from page 1A


Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert said
R.G.'s owners didn't feel they could pay $15,000 an-
nually because of the money they would have to in-
vest in the space to do some "reconfiguration ... and
also the fact that they have to buy all new equip-
ment for the restaurant."
Commissioner Gigi Arntzen shared some of
Black's concerns. She said the city would be giving
up $21,000 more over five years than what city offi-
cials had proposed when they first started talking
about seeking proposals.


KIDS, from page 1A


Pinellas Park Councilman Rick Butler, who himself attended the club
when he was younger, decided to not let that happen. He rallied the com-
munity to raise funds and support for the renovations and formed what is
now the club's managing board.
The club applied for and won a Community Development Block grant
through the county in the amount of $250,000, which was later increased to
$267,000. The city of Pinellas Park supplied a matching grant of about
$36,000 and donated about $150,000 worth of irrigation, plumbing and site
work.
The business community also donated time and supplies, including the
outside painting of the building from Tom White Painting, 100 gallons of
paint from Lowes and $25,000 worth in materials from Smith and Nephew.
The project was bid out to local company Oakhurst Construction, with
Myers and Associates acting as the architect. Construction began in January.
Today, the club has a new roof, new air conditioning, a remodeled kitchen,
a new fire sprinkler system and new energy-efficient lighting. All the floors


FORECLOSURES, from page 1A


'We waited to see how they did," she said.
The wait allowed Pinellas County to take advantage of lessons learned in
other counties.
Putting the sales online provides many advantages, she said. Not only does
it provide a more efficient way to conduct the sales and handle the paper-
work, it makes the process available to people who can't show up in the lobby
of the courthouse at 11 a.m., which is how most sales currently take place.
"People can bid online in the comfort of their home or office," she said. "It
opens it (sales) up to a whole lot more people."
Foreclosure sales begin when the owners fail to pay their mortgage and
banks file for foreclosure with the courts. When the judge orders the sale of
the property, the order comes to the clerk's office.
Typically, foreclosure bidders include banks that hold the mortgage and
sometimes the property owner.
Tax deed sales originate with the tax collector's office, which issues a tax


The suit names City Manager Reid Silverboard
and Neal Schwartz, the city's building official and
code enforcement officer, as defendants.
The original case, filed by 15 Sunset Beach home-
owners in December, was designed to determine
what, if any, violations of the city's zoning and land
use regulations have taken place and to what degree
Caddy's on the Waterfront is an "unlawful public
nuisance." It named the city and Caddy's on the
Waterfront as defendants.
The intent was to first seek a declaratory judg-
ment in Circuit Court and then injunctive relief of
any land-use or zoning violations. It targeted,
among other things, parking lots used by Caddy's
owner Tony Amico.
'The court has remanded the lawsuit from federal
to the local courts and we've refiled, dropping
Caddy's as a defendant," said Ray Green, one of the
Sunset Beach residents who filed the class-action
suit. 'The judge (Rondolino) issued an alternate writ
demanding closing of all parking lots not in compli-
ance with city laws."
In effect, it has forced the city to shut down all
parking lots used by Caddy's that are not in compli-
ance with city zoning laws for a commercial venture.
Green said the plaintiffs would continue the law-
suit "until the city is in compliance."

Fix up or pay up, city tells
Cabana Club owner
CLEARWATER After winning an expensive legal
fight earlier this year, the owners of the Belleview
Biltmore Resort got the go-ahead to build a 38-room
"boutique hotel" and restaurant on the site of their
run-down Cabana Club restaurant on Sand Key.
But nothing happened.
California-based Latitude Management Real Es-
tate Investors, owners of both the Belleview Biltmore
and the Cabana Club, claim that in today's sluggish
economy it is difficult to raise the money needed to
build the Cabana Club hotel and restore the Bilt-
more. Meanwhile, both properties are deteriorating.
Clearwater officials can do nothing about the Bilt-
more because it is in the town of Belleair, but they
have jurisdiction over the Cabana Club.
On June 6, Clearwater officials issued a Notice of
Violation, citing the Cabana Club for five specific
code violations, such as broken windows and crum-
bling concrete. On Aug. 25, LMREI spokesman Mar-
tin Smith appeared before the city's Code
Enforcement Board to say that the windows, which
were broken by transients, have already been re-
placed, and other repairs are under way.
'We have the staff on board and we have already
started," Smith said. 'The only problem is repairing
the soffit, and that should be taken care of in the
next couple of weeks."
Editor's note: Around Pinellas is a compilation of
news stories that have appeared in Tampa Bay
Newspapers in the past couple of weeks.


"As a commissioner, I assumed when we went out
with this we were all comfortable with $15,000 a
year. That's what we were expecting. If we're not, we
need to scratch this and come up with an amount
we're comfortable with and go out for a new RFP,"
she said.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes said if the Library
Director Casey McPhee is satisfied with the agree-
ment, he said, than he has no problem with it.
With the current cafe operator leaving, Holmes
said, if the commission starts the bidding process
over the city might not have a new vendor until next
year.

were replaced, new walls put in and windows installed in every program
room. The gym has new Sport Court flooring that's easy on the children's
knees and easy to maintain. The building was repainted, inside and out.
Outside, the club planted trees and shrubs and installed a new irrigation
system. An outdoor patio for the teen program was revamped. The entire fa-
cility is compliant with the Americans with Disability Act, including the new
bathrooms in the gym and in the main facility area.
The reopening event last month served as the club's soft opening.
"From what we were, to where we're at, it's just incredible," Butler said at
the event. "It's just been a labor of love."
The club moved back into the renovated building just a few days before,
Davis said.
"The biggest delight to me is the expression on all of the kids' faces when
we opened the doors to show them their new facility," Davis said. "It was
sheer satisfaction to me."
Despite the renovations, the club is still in need of an assortment of items
and supplies.

certificate for sale after two years. The tax collector publishes notice and the
tax certificates are sold again in the lobby of the courthouse. If the owner
does not pay the back taxes by the published deadline, the person who owns
the tax certificate gets the property.
She said in both cases, people have plenty of notice and opportunities to
regain their property.
She said moving the sales online gives people a chance to bid even before
the actual date of the sale and post deposits electronically. At the end of the
sale day, the prevailing bidder gets the property, she said.
The online process also protects bidders from "sniping" those last second
bids intended to beat the clock to win the bid. Any late bids that come in on-
line add time to the auction, allowing all bidders more time.
While the process will be more convenient, opening it up to more people,
bidding during foreclosure or tax deed sales is not for everyone.
Irizany said many times the properties come with liens attached that be-
come the responsibility of the new owners.


don't have any furniture," Davis said.
On top of the wish list are computers to replace the outdated ones in the
club's science and computer labs. New computers are especially needed for
a new robotics program that the club piloted over the summer and which
will became part of the educational program the club offers, Davis said.
Also needed are tables, lobby furniture and flat panel TVs for the science
lab, computer lab and reading center. The club is looking for art, craft and
digital media supplies for its "creation station." The teen program needs a
flat panel TV and a couple of computers for the professional development
training the club offers. The gym could use a new scoreboard, bleaches and
a projector screen to show videos and movies. The building itself needs new
fencing.
Anyone interested in donating can call Davis at 686-1953 or e-mail
kdavis@bgcsuncoast.com.
The final touches of the renovation, including a new video surveillance
system, are still being completed. A formal ribbon cutting ceremony will be
scheduled in the near future, Davis said.

'These properties are sold subject to all kinds of liens," she said. "People
need to be smart and be aware."
"Realauction has designed the sites and the sales to ensure fairness to all
bidders while increasing the number of potential buyers for each property or
tax deed which benefits bidders and property owners alike," Burke said in a
press release. "The clerk's office will save time with the new online process by
uploading documents once so all bidders will have simultaneous access to
complete information for each case."
Realauction will supply the software, hosting the websites and providing
customer service. Potential bidders will be able to make deposits, place bids,
monitor auctions and pay for winning bids online. Public terminals will be
available in the clerk of the court's offices. Proxy bidding is available with ad-
vance registration. Registration is free.
Irizany said the staff at the clerk's office welcomes the new service.
'This is going to help us with our efficiency and streamline the process. It's
exciting," she said.

Boat slips may help revitalize downtown Clearwater


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

CLEARWATER After a long
process that began in 2003, city
officials cut the ribbon signaling
the official opening of the down-
town Clearwater boat slips on
Sept. 2.
The new marina includes 126
boat slips, 1,700 feet of overnight
space for visitors, and 700 feet of
space for daytime visits and spe-
cial events, with daytime space
being free. There are still plenty of
slots open, which range from 30
feet to 55 feet, costing $9 per foot
for residents or $10.50 per foot
for nonresidents. The facility also
includes 24-hour security, rest-
rooms, showers, laundry facili-
ties, electricity, and a pump-out
service, as well as parking.
"It's going to help revitalize the
whole downtown and Clearwater
area," said Clearwater City Coun-
cilman George Cretekos. "... (It
will provide) opportunities to help
develop our downtown with the
restaurants we're trying to put in
and retail. Marinas have always
been a center for activity,
whether you're talking about here
in the states or in Europe."
Clearwater Mayor Frank Hib-
bard said the city began this pro-
cess in 2003 with the first voter
referendum which failed by only
about 600 votes. The city then
worked with the proposal, chang-
ing different facets of it, he said,


and then brought it back to the
voters in another referendum in
2006, which this time passed.
Then came the process of design
and engineering and getting ap-
provals from many levels, includ-
ing the state, the county and the
Environmental Protection Agen-
cy. By the time financing and
building was complete, the econ-
omy was not in the city's favor,
Hibbard said, and it opens to
much lower occupancy than an-
ticipated, but he feels confident
that the slips will be fully utilized
within the next couple of years.
Before these were built, there
were no options for boaters in
downtown Clearwater. Looking at
downtown St. Petersburg, Hib-
bard said it is obvious that their
boat slips along the downtown
waterfront have been a major
asset, and he sees the same thing
happening for Clearwater.
"Oh, (the economy) is absolute-
ly affecting things," Hibbard said.
"But I think we have a real ad-
vantage here at this facility that
people will start recognizing, and
that's the fact that from this ma-
rina, people can be out in the
Gulf of Mexico in five minutes.
And that's something that if you
docked in St. Petersburg or
Tampa, you're literally spending
potentially hundreds of dollars
just to get to the Gulf. So folks
can more than pay for their slip
rental with the fuel savings that


they're going to experience, so I
think that is an economic advan-
tage. That really is a huge thing."
Hibbard said that the marina
also offers benefits to nonboaters,
in addition to bringing in people
to help revitalize downtown.
"We have the pier here where
people can come out and enjoy
the water and sunsets," Hibbard
said. There's the fishing pier that
allows people to get out there and
put a hook in the water, not to
mention all these upland im-
provements, from the seawall
which was basically falling apart
to the lack of landscaping right
here all of that has been im-
proved. And it's certainly a better
look now for downtown."
Harbormaster Bill Morris said
he wanted to thank the private
sector for raising money to help
fund the project as well as the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, which offered
much help and helped secure a
grant for the project.
"The year that we competed
(for the grant,) there were only
$9.6 million given out nation-
wide," Morris said. "$1.2 million
of it went here in Clearwater (for
this project.)"
The city applied for the grant
in October 2006, said Patricia
Harrell, boating access coordina-
tor for Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, and
was awarded the grant the fol-

lowing April. Permitting took
three years, she said, but the
grant was fully executed on Sept.
2, 2009 exactly one year before
the slips officially opened.
Morris said the marina has
taken on a life of its own and has
been showing benefits that
weren't even considered during
the initial design stages.
"While we didn't start out to
become an attracter to down-
town, we've found that as we


started building this, the resi-
dential units that were looking
for any chance they could to
help market their units said,
wow, look at what we have right
out our back door," Morris said.
"And as these started to build,
the interest from our residential
community downtown has just
been phenomenal. ... So we're
not only going to rent boat slips,
we're going to be hosting events.
And that is a market that we


didn't originally anticipate going
after, but it's such a natural fit,
especially when you look at it
and the positive feedback that
we're getting from both the ten-
ants and from the transient
boaters."
The boat slips are located at
210 Drew St. across from Coach-
man Park and the old Har-
borview Center. For information

PSTA sets ridership records
As the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority heads
into the final two months of its fiscal year, the agen-
cy is on pace to carry more riders than ever.
PSTA has set monthly ridership records in seven
of the last 10 months, averaging nearly 1.1 million
rides per month. If that trend continues, PSTA will
provide passengers with more than 13 million rides
for the year, a gain of more than 7 percent.
"Our ridership numbers dropped a bit when the
recession hit. Now, we're seeing a rebound and un-
like the last time they were this high, in 2008,
they're not being driven by skyrocketing gasoline
prices," PSTA Executive Director Tim Garling said in
a press release.
According to experts from the Center for Urban
Transportation Research at the University of South
Florida, a 2.5 percent increase in annual ridership
is considered a strong gain in the transit industry.
Over the past three years, PSTA has nearly doubled
that rate of increase.
"PSTA continues working to provide more service
to more people," Garling said. "(Pinellas County)
Commissioner Karen Seel has established a Trans-
portation Task Force that is looking at our future
funding needs and sources. We are also partnering
with the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation
Authority, the Pinellas County MPO, and the Florida
Department of Transportation to study various
high-traffic corridors that will yield opportunities for
improved transit coupled with robust economic de-
velopment."
For more information about the Transportation
Task Force, visit www.pinellascounty.org.

Foreclosure fraud seminar
scheduled in Largo
LARGO The fourth and final free workshop
alerting consumers to the perils of foreclosure fraud
is scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 11, at Largo Li-


brary, 120 Central Park Drive.
Counselors will be available from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. to offer direct assistance referrals for those
who have either fallen behind in their mortgage
payments or anticipate missing payments in the fu-
ture.
With more than 33,000 active foreclosure cases
in the Pinellas-Pasco court system, foreclosure
fraud has become a real problem in Pinellas Coun-
ty. Unscrupulous individuals prey upon those who
are in the process of losing their homes, promising
relief, but providing few tangible results.
Pinellas County's Department of Justice and
Consumer Services recently received a $100,000
federal grant to fight foreclosure fraud. The grant
was provided through the American Recovery &
Reinvestment Act.
A Foreclosure Fraud Prevention Team has been
formed with the Department of Justice and Con-
sumer Services as project coordinator, along with
Pinellas County Community Development, St. Pe-
tersburg Neighborhood Housing Services, Tampa
Bay Community Development Corporation, Gulf-
coast Legal Services, the Pinellas-Pasco Area Agen-
cy on Aging and the Community Law Program.
Homeowners can get more information by calling
the Pinellas County Department of Justice and
Consumer Services at 464-6200. Additional infor-
mation is available at www.pinellascounty.org/fore-
closure.

Alternate water source
rebates to end
The Pinellas County Utilities rebate program for
alternate sources of irrigation is drawing to a
close.
Under the 12-year-old program, rebates were
available for up to 50 percent of the installation
cost (up to $300) for a shallow well, deep well, or
surface water withdrawal system (such as a lake,


pond, or canal) for irrigation. The program was ini-
tiated to assist customers unable to receive re-
claimed water or not scheduled to receive
reclaimed water within five years.
Eligibility includes customers of Pinellas County
Utilities and the city of Safety Harbor.
Since the Alternate Water Sources program
started in 1998, about $512,000 has been paid
out to Utilities customers, resulting in an estimat-
ed savings of 360,000 gallons of potable water per
day. Customer Service Director Bob Peacock


praised customers who have taken advantage of
the program, calling them "excellent stewards of
the environment."
Utilities will continue to process rebate applica-
tions received on or before Sept. 20. For additional
information, please visit www.pinellas
county.org/utilities or call 464-3688.
This program was cooperatively funded by Pinel-
las County and the Pinellas-Anclote River Basin
Board of the Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District.

Vocational education center director seeks growth


By BOB McCLURE

SEMINOLE If Peter Berry's track record is an
accurate indication, Seminole Vocational Education
Center is in for some serious transition.
Berry, 61, took over as director of the facility in
July and is a firm believer in the catch phrase from
the movie "Field of Dreams."
"If you build it, they will come," said Berry, who
has been assigned the task of growing the school's
current enrollment of 317 students. "We can easily
handle 600. So we need to grow it."
Berry spent last year as director of the Pinellas
Technical Educational Center in St. Petersburg.
Prior to that he was assistant director at Manatee
Technical Institute in Bradenton for three years and
assistant director at Westside Tech in Orlando for
five years.
Earlier he served for 10 years as a high school co-
ordinator in Seminole County, specializing in bio-
metrics as a form of identity access management.
More recently his efforts have centered on photo-
voltaics and he plans to continue that push at
SVEC, located at 12611 86th Ave. N.
"I've put solar energy in at five schools and I hope
to put it in this one too," said Berry, who earned a
doctorate degree in administration supervision from
the University of Central Florida.
Berry estimates the cost for a 4.2-kilowatt system
at about $17,000, which would be paid for through
grants he has already applied for. He estimates the
system would pay for itself within six months.
"We need to do more and more of this kind of
stuff," said Berry. "If we're less-dependent on (Mid-
dle East oil) then we won't have to fight as many
wars and have people getting killed."
Berry believes heavily in projects that his stu-
dents can use in SkillsUSA competition. Winning
medals and awards are among his strong points.
For example, at PTEC last year students devel-
oped a propane-powered go-cart, a solar-powered
vehicle and an electric vehicle with a solar backup.
All three projects won gold medals at the state
SkillsUSA competition and two captured medals at
the national contest in Kansas City, which featured
more than 5,600 competitors.


Berry took 27 students to the competition and 16
won medals.
"Students are neat," said Berry. "You get them
started and they don't want to stop."
Berry is a tremendous motivator. On the first day
of school for teachers, he packed the school's 17-
member staff into a hayride trailer and pulled them
all over to Sweet Tomatoes in Largo for lunch.
He also is very community-oriented. Over a 15-
year span in the Orlando area, he donated 100 gal-
lons of platelets to a blood bank.
'That's something I'm very proud of," Berry said.
"Probably my best memory came one year when I
donated platelets on Dec. 23 that were used for a lit-
tle girl on Christmas Day."
That same enthusiasm is something he hopes to
carry over at SVEC.
Among his early plans are to promote recycling.
'We have a dumpster here (for the community to
use) for paper," he said. 'We'll be putting in a sec-
ond dumpster for metal and a horse trailer for card-
board."
Berry has crafted a home-made compactor for the
cardboard from a surplus chair lift that will enable
school staff to bundle it. With the going rate of $90
per ton, he figures the school can make a few extra
bucks.
He has applied for a grant from the Southwest
Florida Water Management District to fund outside
conservation kits that will be distributed in April
during the annual Green Thumb Festival, an out-
door nursery sale, in St. Petersburg.
The kits will consist of a rain gauge, a probe to
measure moisture levels of soil and a low-flow noz-
zle for use on a garden hose. The idea is to get
names and addresses of those receiving the kits,
track their water consumption and see how much
they're saving.
Berry said the school would continue its con-
struction of casitas for the homeless at Pinellas
Hope.
He hopes to start a new program that converts
methane gas from a lift station on campus into
enough electricity to power an air conditioner.
"This is nothing new," said Berry. "It's big in
China, India and South America.


Photo by BOB McCLURE
Seminole Vocational Education Center director Peter Berry wants to convert the school to solar energy.


"Let's teach people that we can be self-sufficient,"
he added. "If we can do that (methane conversion)
here, think what we can do all over the county. The
savings would be tremendous."
Ultimately, Berry said he wants to develop a pho-
tonics program, to study the use of lasers. No other
high school in Florida offers such a program and
only two community colleges do so.
The program would go with the school's current
curriculum, which features programs in electricity,
carpentry, commercial art, horticulture and envi-
ronmental studies, power and energy technology,


and veterinarian technology.
It's all part of the big picture that he calls image
construction.
"We can teach skills (to students) but we can't
make them grow up," said Berry. "But if we can help
them become better citizens and develop a better
work ethic, that's what we're shooting for at this
school."
SVEC plans a public open house and fish fry
Monday, Sept. 20, 6 p.m. Admission is $5 per per-
son.

Seminole High School
Warhawk Marching Band and Guard
8401 131st Street North
Seminole, FL 33776


The Seminole High School Marching Band and Guard will be marching in the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade". There
has never been a high school marching band invited from Pinellas County, Pasco County, or Hillsborough County in the 84 years
that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" has been in existence. Until now...! We are proud to have this wonderful
opportunity.
Taking a band of 160 members and 23 chaperones over 1,000 miles will require a great deal of Fund-raisers including car
washes, tag days, candy sales, and band appearances cannot possibly provide the $1,700 per student necessary for this trip.
We are asking your help to sponsor a student, one of the 60 students in danger of being left behind. We know you will want to
join us in providing the necessary financial resources that will make it possible for our nationally recognized band to participate
in this famous 2 1/2 mile parade. I' iMllnl

Pinellas County has been for-
tunate to have so many dog
parks and pet-friendly areas built
in recent years. Many county
parks now have fenced-in areas
set aside for our four-legged
friends to roam and romp off
leash, and there is even a dog-
friendly beach in Fort De Soto
Park. These parks are great
places for dogs and their owners
to be able to play and interact
with other people and pets. With
such freedom does come respon-
sibility, and caution also must be
taken.
While many dogs enjoy romp-
ing and playing with other dogs,
some do not. Some are too scared
to interact, and others may be too
focused on being the "top dog" to
have fun. Unfortunately, some
owners also do not seem to un-
derstand that their pet is not
having fun, but rather acting
tense, anxious, or aggressive.
One of the responsibilities of at-
tending a dog park is knowing
when to leave. Even though the
owner of an aggressive dog may
swear that he is "just playing," if
a dog does not seem friendly, do
the responsible thing and leave,
and try again another day.
Parasites are a significant
problem anywhere pets congre-
gate. While heartworm preven-
tions and flea control can prevent
many such parasitic problems,
not all pet owners are as consci-


Speaking of Pets
Michael J. Rumore,
D.V.M.


entious about using such prod-
ucts. Hookworms, roundworms
and whipworms lay microscopic
eggs, which then contaminate the
soil through feces. Because the
eggs are microscopic, many peo-
ple won't realize that their pets
are affected by parasites, and in-
.I' i r! !io ii, spread the eggs wher-
ever their dog defecates. These
worms, in large numbers, can
cause severe intestinal problems
in dogs, and enough blood loss to
cause death. Additionally, hook-
worms and roundworms are
zoonotic, which means they have
the ability to cause disease in
people.


Hookworms can penetrate the
skin of people, and crawl beneath
causing severe skin disease, and
potential organ damage. Round-
worms may do the same, and can
migrate to the internal organs or
even the eyes in children, causing
blindness and severe illness. Be-
cause of this, one should always
wear shoes in a dog park, wash
your hands afterward, and con-
sistently use a monthly heart-
worm preventative that helps
prevent infection with these terri-
ble parasites.
Viruses, such as parvovirus
and distemper, will be more
prevalent wherever dogs congre-


gate, so adequate vaccines are
vital. Both of these diseases are
prevalent in our community, and
can lead to severe illness and
often death. Other less severe
respiratory viruses may be
spread as well. If you see a pet in
the dog park with coughing,
sneezing, diarrhea or, '.. iii; it
may be wise to tell the owner to
visit their veterinarian, and then
politely leave before your pet
catches it as well.
Simply expect fleas and ticks,
and protect your dog before they
occur. These parks occur in wild
areas where fleas already exist,
and the influx of dogs makes the
matters worse. Be very careful
not to bring live fleas home, as
one female flea can lay 2,000
eggs and quickly infest your en-
tire house.
Lastly, be a good pet owner. If
your dog is sick, skip the park.
Pick up after your dog, and don't
just ignore the "present" he left
behind. If your pet seems nerv-
ous or unfriendly, do not wait for
something bad to happen, excuse
yourself and try another day, or
play at home.
Dog parks can be great fun, as
long as a few precautions are
taken. We are fortunate to have
such a dog-friendly community in
this county.

owner of Lake Seminole Animal
Hospital.

State serves up bonus
red snapper season
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission re-
cently agreed to reopen the recre-
ational harvest season for red
snapper in Gulf of Mexico state
waters for eight straight three-
day weekends this fall.
The action coincides with a
proposed open season for red
snapper that is expected to be
implemented in Gulf federal wa-
ters off of Florida on the same
dates.
'This is just what the doctor
ordered and couldn't have come
at a better time to give a much-
needed boost to our Gulf fishing
communities that have had a
challenging summer, to say the
least, because of the Gulf oil
spill," said FWC Chairman Rod-
ney Barreto.
The regular recreational har-
vest season for red snapper in all
waters of the Gulf off Florida took
place from June 1 until July 24


this year. This season was set
based on projections of how
many red snapper could be
caught by recreational anglers
without exceeding the annual
harvest quota, which was estab-
lished to help rebuild overfished
stocks so that anglers can benefit
from better red snapper fishing in
the future.
However, recreational fishing
effort for Gulf red snapper by pri-
vate and charter boats was much
less than anticipated because of
the BP Deepwater Horizon oil
spill, which resulted in fishing
closures and cancelled fishing
trips in federal and state waters
off parts of Florida's Gulf coast.
Consequently, the established
Gulf recreational red snapper
quota was not met during the
regular season, which means
more fishing days can be opened
this year.
Anglers will be able to keep the
current Gulf daily recreational
limit of two red snapper greater
than 16 inches total length per
person on Fridays, Saturdays
and Sundays beginning Oct. 1
and extending for eight consecu-
tive weekends through Sunday,
Nov. 21.
"That gives folks an extra 24
days to enjoy Gulf red snapper
fishing at a time when the weath-
er is usually very nice and on
weekends when most people are
able to take off from work," Bar-
reto said.
Updated information about red
snapper management and regu-
lations is available online at
MyFWC.com/Rules (click on
"Fishing- Saltwater").

Extension to host
composting workshop
LARGO A free backyard com-
posting workshop will be offered


Leader, September 9, 2010



Saturday, Sept. 11, 9 to 10:30
a.m., at Pinellas County Exten-
sion, 12520 Ulmerton Road.
Dale Armstrong and Wilma
Holley will host this informative
workshop. Attendees will learn
how easy backyard composting
can be. Adding compost to Flori-
da's sandy soil provides much-
needed organic material and
nutrients while improving its
water-holding capacity. Recycling
yard waste by turning it into
compost rather than sending it to
the landfill is a sustainable prac-
tice.
Attendees will receive one com-
post bin per household courtesy
of Pinellas County Utilities Solid
Waste Operations Department.
Registration is required at least
24 hours prior to the presenta-
tion. To register, call 582-2100 or
visit www.pinellascountyexten
sion.org, click on the Online
Class Registration button and
then the Lawn Gard en tab.

ing palms healthy will be present-
ed Saturday, Sept. 18, 9 to 10:30
a.m., at Pinellas County Exten-

Attendees will learn how to give
palms the care they need to re-
cover from cold damage and re-
main healthy. Palms are an
important part of many Pinellas
County area landscapes. In this
program, common problems of
palms and how to deal with them
will be discussed.
Cost is $15. Registration is re-
quired at least 24 hours prior to

EDITORIAL


Cooperative



spirit prevails

It took a lot of haggling, but a tentative agreement between beach
communities and county officials shows a commitment to efforts to
bolster tourism.
County officials have agreed basically to allocate $35 million in
Penny for Pinellas funds to 11 municipalities for Gulf Boulevard im-
provements.
The money is expected to be allocated to the cities beginning in
October 2012 and payments will continue over a seven-year span
through fiscal 2019.
Credit goes to leaders in the beach municipalities and county offi-
cials who worked out the particulars over many discussions. Stung
by a sluggish economy and a shortfall in revenue, the funding allo-
cation could have been delayed indefinitely. But county officials rec-
ognized the significance of providing funding, which must be tied to
improvements along Gulf Boulevard.
County officials recommend that a unified effort be taken by the
beach communities on the projects, such as the undergrounding of
utilities. Indeed, the undergrounding of the utilities, which Indian
Shores undertook a few years ago, has a strong visual impact on
Gulf Boulevard and goes a long way toward enhancing the appear-
ance of the corridor. Reducing the risk of fallen utility lines will im-
prove public safety.
Whether they decide to use the money on funding for under-
ground projects or other work, the cities will have to get approval
each year on how their money will be spent. Such stipulations help
provide accountability.
All in all, the agreement is a win-win situation.

GUEST COLUMN

100 years young: Boy


Scouts of America
September has come and school is started again for our kids and par-
ents are all trying our best to make sure they are in the right classes
and that their afternoons and weekends will be fit family schedules and
interests for them, and for us too. My children have grown and each is
incredibly suited for what they're doing in their lives. I'm proud of them.
As a grandparent, and as a member of our community here in Pinel-
las County, I think that what our kids are involved in is incredibly im-
portant to who and what they'll become as they become adults.
Our society is so fiercely competitive for time. Just as when I was a
young man years ago, there are only 24 hours in a day. School and
homework takes a sizable chunk. In the remaining few hours each day,
we want our kids to learn about their communities, engage in good
physical exercise and be constructive members of social groups that
help to develop good character. Choices have to be made and some are
easy, others are more difficult.
The organizations that we choose are numerous. Some are new, oth-
ers are older. But I
want to invite chil-
dren and parents
to reconsider the As I see it
opportunity to join
in the Scouting ex- Charles Bailey
perience.
In this year of
2010, Boy Scout-
ing is 100 years
young. A lot of people say that the image of a Boy Scout is old-fash-
ioned. Is it? Are the principles of the Scout Law antiquated? Trustwor-
thy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
clean, brave, reverent? Is the Cub Scout motto too old? Do your best!
Are those camping trips into the outdoors so old that they're not fun
anymore?
Cub Scouting is the program for boys from the first through the fifth
grade. A boy and his parents learn together the value of communication
between parent and child, and they each learn more of what makes
them special as a family. They begin to learn about their communities,
about nature, about sports, about arts and school and so many skills.
They develop strong self-esteem, respect, and have fun doing it. That's
important- kids (and parents) don't join to learn. They join to have fun.
Boy Scouting is the core program for boys from age 11 to 18. A boy
starts to learn more about independence and responsibility. He learns
about the basics of cooking and camping and science and first aid, and
teamwork. Within a year of becoming a Scout, he should attain the rank
of First Class Scout able to take care of himself and to teach his peers.
If he chooses to work toward the long esteemed rank of Eagle Scout, he
will challenge himself, learn to manage projects, and when he is award-
ed the Eagle, he will have achieved what only about 3 percent of Scouts
complete. He will be a marked man. The Eagle has long been recognized
throughout society as proof of the persistent and positive character of a
young man. All this said, they join Scouts to have fun.
Venturing is the program for high school boys and girls that gives
them the opportunity to choose what their crew or their ship will do for
their activities. They learn to plan activities and to learn how to pay for
what they want to do together by earning money and budgeting. They
hike and camp in the high mountains and the desert southwest. They
travel to Alaska and Canada and the like. They put to sea in sailing
boats and learn more about themselves than most learn in years. And
yes, the reason they join is to have fun.
Character, physical strength, mental alertness, belief in something
more than oneself- most all of us agree that these are important
strengths to develop in our youth today to prepare them for adulthood.
When we consider the challenges, isn't Scouting worth looking at
again. I think so. Look into the program in the area where you live. Visit
BeAScout.org and see where you can join today. Or attend Join Scout-
ing Night at your elementary school. You won't be disappointed.
Charles Bailey has been active in Scouting as an adult volunteer for
more than 40 years. He is currently a district membership chairman for
the West Central Florida Council of the Boy Scouts ofAmerica

Building the mosque will divide people
Re: 'What if they weren't Muslim?'Aug. 26.
Editor:
Thanks to Mr. Driver for giving us a view from his seat.
I believe that most of us can agree not all Muslims who are practicing
the religion of Islam are not terrorists or extremists. As Mr. Driver says,
we don't know who are extremists or moderates.
However, we who call America our home and want to keep it safe
from an Islamist political movement must inform ourselves of some of
the designs taking place here.
The iman who is the leader of the Mohammedan sect seems to be the
main representative of the project. This man has been quoted as saying,
"America has more blood on its hands than Al Qaeda."
He also has called America a "terrorist country." Anyone can search
online for this information.
The project I refer to above is the building of a Mosque at ground zero.
Americans have a right to know who is financing this $200 million
structure. A large amount may be from "petro" countries, Iran and Ara-
bia. In point of fact, these are the two countries that are the worst of-


fenders of women's rights and religious freedoms.
According to Dr. Walid Phares, an expert on Middle Eastern affairs,
the establishment of a mosque at ground zero is not about religious
freedom but politics. Political Islam is happening here, an Islamist politi-
cal movement. Islam is a religion and a state. It's not about geography,
but ideology
If Muslims want to engage New Yorkers and the world on an interfaith
level, most people welcome that to have a dialogue on the subjects of
equality and justice for women and among all people, etc.
Muslims pray five times a day ... anywhere. Building a mosque at
ground zero is a constant reminder of who is responsible for the sheer
horror of 9/11. This is not bringing people together, but dividing them.
"Islamism as a movement is what extreme Muslims are attempting to
promote. Major political change will result" Dr. Walid Phares.
It is not about freedom and faith but politics.

Embracing, scrapping traditions


Many minds of our generation are calling
for a return to America's earlier customs, to
the way things used to be. Let's ponder some
of our traditions, shall we?
One tradition I recall was sitting on the
front porch of an evening. The porch was a
substitute for air conditioning. It got Mom
out of the hot kitchen. It allowed people to
wave hello to their neighbors, and to keep
track of which boys were nosing after which
girls. Also, to see which brand of joy juice
Mr. Nelson, across the street, was sampling
this week.
Gradually porches disappeared. Next time
you drive the streets of Pinellas County, try
counting the number of porches you see. In
some towns there are more Porsches than
porches. Why did the porches vanish? Be-
cause that's not where the TV was. The TV
was inside, forming its own traditions. Ex-
ample: the Ed Sullivan show and its great
acts, such as two llamas dancing the tango.
In many cities the front porch has been re-
placed by the front stoop, a series of steps on
which young people can assemble and wit-
ness a new tradition drive-by shootings.
Let's hope that one fades with time.
In fairness, I should mention a few Ameri-
can traditions that few of us want to see re-
vived. Such as slavery, stealing the land from
the Indians, and not allowing women to vote
or own property. But polite folks don't like to
recall such things, do we?
A tradition often practiced on summer
nights was catching fireflies. As darkness de-
scended, we'd get a glass jar with a lid. Then
we'd search for the fireflies. We might com-
pete to see who could capture the most. We
kept them in the jars as long as we could


Driver's Seat

without smothering them. Then we'd release
the survivors. This rather tame tradition last-
ed until the 1960s, when it was replaced by
marijuana.
Courtship had eight or ten of its own tradi-
tions. One was not kissing on the first date.
If a girl violated that rule, a news release was
issued: "Last night Amanda Tunkettor be-
came the neighborhood slut." A brief peck on
the cheek was permitted on the second date,
followed by a dry lip-kiss on the third. Before
the fourth date, the girl's father took the boy
out to the garage and said, "Son, do you see
this rack of shotguns hanging on the wall?
The one on the left has your name on it, in
the event you misbehave with my daughter."
Making fudge was another tradition of
courtship. Joe and Amanda might have
planned an evening of cuddling in the park.
Instead, Amanda's mother announced, "Why
don't you two stay home with us tonight and
I'll make a huge pan of fudge. Won't that be
exciting?"
Conversation was once an honored tradi-
tion. All you needed was a few adults, some
coffee and a quiet living room. I can remem-
ber my parents and their friends sitting in
the parlor for hours, jawboning away about
all sorts of things. No TV, no vacation slide
shows. Just exchanging ideas and opinions.


Most amazing, as I look back, was the way
Republicans and Democrats could sit in the
same room and not insult each other. That
custom seems to have gone the way of the
rumble seat.
Good grammar was once not just a tradi-
tion, it was an assumption. Any fifth-grader
who said "Between she and I" was risking
two hours in study hall. A high-school stu-
dent who uttered his/her first "y'know" in
class was in danger of the teacher cutting
him off with, "No, I do NOT know. Why must
you keep using that meaningless expres-
sion?"
Singing the words of our national anthem
was once a tradition. When the band struck
up The Star-Spangled Banner, you rose to
your feet and sang out loud and proud. You
didn't worry about whether to put your hand
over your heart or if your voice was as pass-
able as the person next to you. Your only
concern was that you might forget the lyrics,
or a line or two of them. Today that worry is
gone. Only a small percentage of people seem
to know the words and are willing to sing
them. Instead of a stadium or theater full of
Americans singing in unashamed unison, we
have relinquished our national anthem to
the vocal embellishments of whatever rock
star or country singer is handy. In the dust
and darkness, those trapped miners in Chile
sang their national anthem. Would you and
I?
Traditions are important. However, next
time someone talks about the need to revive
old traditions, try this reply: "Sounds good,
but which ones are you talking about?"

Reports of redfish are becoming more numerous


Recent rains have helped to
bring our water temperatures
down a little bit. A couple of de-
grees difference can make a huge
difference, especially in the shal-
low flats. Decent reports of redfish
are becoming more numerous.
Fall is typically when shallow flats
and near-shore structures are vis-
ited by schools of large breeder
sized redfish.
Tierra Verde is a great place for
redfish. Places like Tarpon Key,
Jackass Key and Conception Key


will all attract schools of redfish
throughout the fall. These small
islands can receive a lot of pres-
sure, especially on the weekends.
This can often make the fish
spook much easier than less pres-
sured locales. A good option would
be to wade fish especially on the
lower tidal stages. Target schools
of mullet as they make their way
on and off the flats. Casting gold
spoons and top-water plugs will
help you locate fish holding areas.

Wherever you target redfish this

What to grow in a cool season


Broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce,
tomatoes, peppers, radishes,
carrots, string beans, peas, etc.
Put the best on your table by
growing these delicious vegeta-
bles at home or in a neighbor-
hood plot.
Referring to "Vegetable Gar-
dening in Florida" by James
Stephens, September is a good
time to start broccoli, cabbage,
collards, lettuce, onions, radish-
es and turnips. Tomatoes, sum-
mer squash, peppers, eggplant,
cucumbers, sweet corn, lima
beans, bush and pole beans like
the warm weather we're having
now and should produce before


a Canadian winter blast arrives.
That's quite a garden full of
healthy meals. With TLC, seeds
germinate quickly, so don't hesi-
tate to start them yourself. Nurs-
eries sell starter plants or will
have them very soon.
A reader wrote me he found a
source of rotted horse manure
on the Internet that helped his

My very favorite crop is green
peas. Pea pods are OK, but I
much prefer the full-sized pea to
shell. They don't get into the
kitchen, however. When weeding
or watering, my sweet treat is to
munch on fresh picked peas.
One year, however, a varmint I
never laid eyes on, stripped the
pod open right on the vine and
ate them before they were large
enough for me to harvest. I think
it was an opossum, as my ever-
vigilant dog treed one in the fig
tree one night. Plastic netting or

Hard Rock plans new cafe
TAMPA A new Hard Rock Cafe will open at the
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa
before year's end.
"We are thrilled to extend our legendary Hard
Rock Cafe experience to Florida's most successful
casino," said Hamish Dodds, president and CEO
of Orlando-based Hard Rock International. "Hard
Rock's vibe and atmosphere will be a perfect com-
plement to this amazing entertainment complex."
Expected to become one of Tampa Bay's premier
dining and entertainment destinations, the
17,500-square-foot Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will be
constructed in the northwest comer of the existing
casino complex, nearly doubling the 9,000-square-
foot space formerly occupied by Floyd's restaurant
and nightclub.
Employees of Floyd's, which closed recently,
have been kept on the payroll for positions at the
casino or the new cafe. In addition, managers of
the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino expect
to hire additional employees for the cafe at a fall
job fair.
'This is a win-win-win for the casino, for our
employees and for Tampa residents and visitors,
who will have yet another renowned dining and
entertainment option at the Seminole Hard Rock,"
said John Fontana, president, Seminole Hard
Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa. "We're making a


multi-million dollar investment that will generate a
significant economic impact throughout the
Tampa Bay region."
Three primary entertainment areas will make up
the design of the new 350-seat cafe.
At one end, table seating will surround an ele-
vated stage, to be the site of regularly-scheduled
performances. Opposite the stage, the main Hard
Rock Cafe bar will be highlighted by a dramatic
multi-media canopy, arched over the bar and
thrusting out to the main restaurant seating area,
which will occupy two levels in the center of the
cafe.
An open display kitchen will include a "burger
bar" area where beef will be ground into hamburg-
er and formed into patties. A Rock Shop featuring
Hard Rock's limited-edition merchandise, such as
clothing, gifts, pins and more, will open as part of
the new cafe, which will also feature a new out-
door patio and bar.
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will feature rock 'n' roll
memorabilia. Innovative technology will give
guests touch screen access to Hard Rock's memo-
rabilia and merchandise and even allow them to
vote on what music video plays next in the cafe.
Hard Rock International plans to beta test new
products and presentation equipment at the
Tampa cafe before rolling it out to Hard Rock loca-
tions worldwide.
'The new cafe includes many of the most for-
ward-thinking entertainment concepts available
today," said James Allen, chairman of Hard Rock
International and CEO of Seminole Gaming. "It
draws from the considerable expertise of Hard
Rock International executives in Orlando, who are
partnering in the project with senior managers at
the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Tampa."
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa is being designed by Klai
Juba Architects, Las Vegas, with interior designs
by 555 Design Fabrication Management of Chica-
go.
Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will open before the end
of 2010 at I-4 and Orient Road, 10 minutes east of
Tampa. It will be the sixth Hard Rock Cafe in
Florida, joining others in Miami, Key West, Orlan-
do, Destin and at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel
and Casino Hollywood.
With a total of 168 venues in 52 countries, in-
cluding 133 cafes and 14 hotels/casinos, Hard
Rock International is one of the world's most glob-
ally recognized brands. Beginning with an Eric
Clapton guitar, Hard Rock owns the world's great-
est collection of music memorabilia, which is dis-
played at its locations around the globe.

Western Australia.
Willie spends his day fishing, hanging out with his friends, and
when he can, his girlfriend Rosie (Jessica Mauboy). However his moth-

makes him return to the religious mission in Perth for further school-

ing. After being punished by Father Benedictus (Geoffrey Rush) for an
act of youthful rebellion, Willie runs away from the mission. He is too
ashamed to go home as it will break his mother's heart.
Down on his luck he meets an old man, who he calls 'Uncle' Tad-
pole, and together they con a couple of hippies, Annie (Missy Higgins)
and Slippery (Tom Budge), into taking them on the 3,000 mile journey
through the spectacular Australian outback before finally reaching
Broome.
Willie learns life's hard and often funny lessons all the while being
pursued by Father Benedictus. Arriving back in Broome, Willie wins
the girl, convinces his mother that Broome is the place he should be,
and discovers that the father he never knew he had was closer than
ever imagined.

Horoscopes
September 9, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Forget about it, Capricorn.
You are much too busy to com-
mit to another thing. Refuse the
request and get back to the mat-
ters at hand.
Aquarius
January 20 February 18
Some people are too set in
their ways to change. Accept
that, Aquarius, and focus on the
things you can change. A little
saving now pays off big later.
Pisces
February 19 March 20
You can talk the talk, but can
you walk the walk? Sure you
can, Pisces, and it's time you
showed everyone you can. A new
fact surfaces in an intriguing
case.
Aries
March 21 April 19
Fun is on tap this week, and it
would do you good to participate,
Aries. You have been burning the
candle at both ends for far too
long and deserve a break.
Taurus
April 20 May 20
The odds may be stacked
against you, but that doesn't give
you the right to walk away. Keep
pushing, Taurus, and you will
move forward. A rumor turns
truth.
Gemini
May 21 June 21
No one is as dependable as
you, Gemini, so stop expecting
them to be. A relative bails on
you yet again. Give them the
benefit of the doubt.
Cancer
June 22 July 22
A project is in dire straights.
Give it your all, Cancer, and you
will save it in the nick of time. A
loved one is feeling neglected.
Make it up to them with a night
out.
Leo
July 23 August 22
You have what it takes to
move up, Leo, but you lack the
confidence and the initiative.
Look to a mentor to point you in
the right direction.
Virgo
August 23 September 22
Take it easy, Virgo. You have
accomplished a lot and deserve
some time off. A furry friend
comes into your life bearing a
sweet gift.
Libra
September 23 October 22
In the mood for some fun,
Libra? Make sure the people
around you are too and invite
them on a little road trip. A dead-
line is moved up.
Scorpio
October 23 November 21
Something is up at home, but
you can't put your finger on it.
Leave it be, Scorpio. You don't
want to ruin the surprise. A mys-
tery at work is cleared up.
Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
Check yourself, Sagittarius,
before you confront a coworker.
You don't want to say something
you'll regret. A major snafu at
home breaks the tension.

'Heartbreaker'
Genre: Comedy and romance
Cast: Romain Duris and
Vanessa Paradis
Director: Pascal Chaumeil
Not rated
"Heartbreaker" is an action-
packed romantic comedy pairing
two of France's biggest young
stars: Romain Duris and ac-
tress/singer Vanessa Paradis. A
smash hit in France, the film was
also featured at the Tribeca Film
Festival.
Charming, funny and effort-
lessly cool, Alex (Duris) is a pro-
fessional heartbreaker who for a
fee can turn any husband, fiance
or boyfriend into an ex. Alex has
one ironclad rule: He only breaks
up couples where the woman is
unhappy. His latest job will put
that rule to the test. The target is
Juliette, a beautiful heiress who
is set to marry the man of her
dreams. With ten days until the
wedding, Alex has been hired by
her father to carry out his most
daring seduction yet that risks
him being caught by his ruthless
personal creditors, angry exes,
and the beautiful and independ-
ent Juliette herself.
But worst of all, will he discov-
er to his own cost that when it
comes to love, the perfect plan
doesn't exist?

'I'm Still Here'
Genre: Documentary and
biopic
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix
Director: Casey Affleck
The directorial debut of Oscar-
nominated actor Casey Affleck,
"I'm Still Here" is a striking por-
trayal of a tumultuous year in the
life of internationally acclaimed
actor Joaquin Phoenix.
With remarkable access, "I'm
Still Here" follows the Oscar-nom-
inee as he announces his retire-
ment from a successful film
career in the fall of 2008 and sets
off to reinvent himself as a hip-
hop musician. Sometimes funny,
sometimes shocking and always
riveting, the film is a portrait of
an artist at a crossroads. Defying
expectations, it deftly explores
notions of courage and creative
reinvention, as well as the ramifi-
cations of a life spent in the pub-
lic eye.

'Legendary'
Genre: Drama and sports
Cast: John Cena, Patricia
Clarkson, Hal Holbrook, Devon
Graye and Madeleine Martin
Director: Mel Damski
Rated: PG-13
"Legendary" explores a teenage
boy's journey to reunite his fami-
ly ten years after the death of
their beloved father, a state colle-
giate wrestling legend.

Making This Right


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.
