Commissioner Curtis Holmes questioned what would happen
if the commission didn't subsidize the Largo Golf Course with
$200,000 from other city funds for the next fiscal year.
City budget manager Amy Davis said if the city doesn't subsi-
dize the golf course, the cash deficit would continue to grow.
The commission eventually would have to discuss what it
would do with the golf course.
"We've already loaned it $600,000, which has never been re-
paid ... Where is the light at the end of this tunnel?" Holmes
Holmes asked whether city officials could boost play enough
to reduce the subsidies.
Mayor Pat Gerard said all commissioners have expressed the
same concern as Holmes has that the golf course is not bring-
ing in money the way its supposed to.
Referring to a marketing plan for the golf course, Gerard said
she had doubts "whether it will increase play enough to actual-
ly pay for itself."
Commissioners have asked staff to give a report to commis-
sioners in six months on the golf course.

Swanson was making a film and he had set
up his Kodak camera on a small tripod to
shoot the Kremlin.

they wanted the world to see," he said.

as I wanted. I turned my back around from the
camera, to go into the little traveling satchel
that I had full of lenses. As I turned back to
the camera, I was horrified to see it wasn't
there," he said.
He saw the legs of the camera going down
into the Moscow River. Whoever pitched the
camera into the river had disappeared as
suddenly as he had arrived.
"I didn't know what to do. I was absolutely
paralytic. How could I explain to my client that

Swanson was flabbergasted.

I drove up there with this car, there stood the

Swanson said, warning that he would be ar-

City OKs design services for recreation center
LARGO City commissioners unanimously approved $1.65 mil-
lion for design services Sept. 7 for the Highland Recreation Com-
plex to Gould Evans Associates of Tampa.
The work includes the design of a 40,000-square-foot building
and associated site work and amenities, such as parking lots,
drainage facilities, landscaping, tennis and basketball courts.
The design phase of the $13 million project is expected to take
between 10 and 12 months and the construction phase a year.
The current complex, located on Highland Avenue, was built in
1972 and has leaks and other structural problems.
City officials plan to finance the project through a bank loan
backed by Penny for Pinellas funds.
At a previous meeting commissioners raised several questions
about the need for LEED certification, which was developed by the
U.S. Green Building Council. The process provides verification that
a building was designed and built meeting certain standards for
energy savings, water efficiency, emissions reductions, indoor envi-
ronmental quality and other elements.
Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert said the city "in the spir-
it of LEED" would construct a green building following good sus-
tainable practices but would not go through the formal certification
Commissioners agreed to forego the process, which is expected
to save the city $41,950, Schubert said.
City commission extends legal drinking hours
LARGO City commissioners gave final approval Sept. 7 to an
ordinance extending the hours alcoholic beverages can be sold in
Largo until 3 a.m.
City commissioners have said they favored the extension to be
consistent with action taken by the Pinellas County Commission,
which decided July 6 to extend drinking hours in the unincorpo-
rated area to 3 a.m. Other cities have taken similar action.
If the city didn't have any regulations, every establishment would
not be able to sell alcoholic beverages later than midnight under
state law, Commissioner Mary Black said.
"I concur with that," she said. "However, we currently have our
places open until 2 a.m., and I think that is a sufficient hour."
Commissioner Woody Brown said a Largo business owner told
him he started losing business because would-be customers would
go to St. Petersburg to take advantage of the extended hours.
"I'm going to support this more for the businesses," he said.

County commission approves millage rates, budgets
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER During the first of two public hearings on Sept.
7, Pinellas County commissioners gave tentative approval to the
proposed fiscal year 2011 budget of $1.6 billion, which includes
$1.2 billion for operating purposes and $400 million for capital proj-
The final budget hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 21, 6:30 p.m.,
at the Pinellas County Courthouse in Clearwater.
The commissioners also gave tentative approval to a variety of
village rates, which remain the same as 2010, including the follow-
Millage rates approved include:
4.8108 general fund, countywide
0.0622 health department
0.5831 emergency medical services
0.0125 Pinellas Planning Council
2.0857 MSTU (unincorporated areas)
0.4437 Public Library Cooperative
0.4378 Palm Harbor Community Services District
0.5660 Feather Sound Community Services District
The commissioners rejected a staff recommendation to raise the
EMS millage, choosing to take the budget shortfall from EMS re-
serves. They also held firm on a decision made Aug. 17 to refuse
staffs proposal to change paramedic funding for Station 19 in the
Lealman Fire District.
Commissioner John Morroni brought the subject back to the
table after officials in Pinellas Park and others expressed concern.
The plan, among several cost-cutting measures proposed by staff,
was to eliminate funding for two paramedic positions at Station 19
and add funding for one paramedic position at Station 16 in the
Pinellas Park Fire District. Station 16 is located about a mile from
Lealman officials and residents protested the change saying the
loss of two paramedic positions and rescue 19 would result in
longer response times to the western part of the district. A staff
presentation showed response times would remain within the coun-
ty's standard. Staff also said by moving one position to Station 16 in
Kenneth City, response for the area as a whole could improve.
Pinellas Park took over the contract for fire service to Kenneth
City after Lealman canceled.
During the regular commission meeting on Sept. 7 prior to the
budget hearing, Pinellas Park offered to hire employees that would
lose their jobs with Lealman, if the commissioners approved the
change in paramedic funding.
When asked why the city had not come forward sooner, Pinellas
Park Mayor Bill Mischler said his city's officials and fire department
personnel had felt confident that the county would approve the staff
All the recommendations by staff to cut costs to the county's
EMS systems were approved last year and all the proposed cuts for
2011 were approved except the change to the Lealman Fire District.
Pinellas Park City Manager Michael Gustafson and St. Pete
Beach City Manager Mike Bonfield expressed concern about a loss
of cooperation with other fire districts who have worked with the
county in the past to cut costs to the EMS system if the commis-
sioners did not approve the staff recommendations.
Commissioner Ken Welch said he was reluctant to approve the
change at Lealman due to discrepancies between data presented by
staff and local fire officials.
The commissioners also rejected a request from some residents of
Palm Harbor to increase the millage for the community services dis-
trict. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said not enough support had
come in from residents to believe all supported a tax increase.
"All I hear from people is requests to not raise taxes," she said.
The commissioners approved tentative millage rates for 12 fire
districts. The only change from the originally proposed rates was for
the Largo Fire District, which was lowered to 3.4384 after contract
negotiations with the city. The millage is still an increase of 0.9968
Other fire districts with increases include Clearwater, Safety Har-
bor, High Point, Tierra Verde and Gandy. The millage rates apply to
residents who live in unincorporated areas.
County administrator Bob LaSala outlined changes made to the
budget since it was first proposed on July 13. Among the changes
included elimination of a plan to charge entrance fees at Fort De
Soto and parking fees at regional parks.
A handful of people spoke in favor of park fees. The suggestion
was to start with entrance fees for Fort De Soto and then evaluate
the situation before deciding whether to add fees for other parks.
The people requesting the fees are concerned that without adequate
funding, park maintenance would not be sufficient.
A number of speakers, most members of Faith and Action for

Grand opening planned for Old
MADEIRA BEACH Though their goal was the
Fourth of July, concessionaires Mike and Rita
Janecek said they were glad to finally be able to
open their Old Snack Shack business in time for
the summer's last big holiday.
The couple received their final permits Sept. 3
and were open by 8 a.m. Sept. 4 to serve Danish
and coffee to early morning beachgoers Labor Day
The wait has been long and sometimes tortuous.
A needed approval from the National Park Service
was months in coming, followed by more delays in
obtaining permits from the county and city. The
Janeceks were selected as the city's vendor of
choice to operate the cabin in January.
Altogether, more than two years have elapsed
since city voters overwhelmingly approved a refer-
endum requiring the city to preserve and rehabili-
tate the then-deteriorating structure. It had been
marked for demolition.
Customers looking over a lunchtime menu that
included hot dogs, Working Cow ice cream and
Hawaiian shaved ice were pleased to see the cabin
open for business.
"I'm so thrilled to have it open," said Barbara
Minnie of Madeira Beach. "I've been down here 10
years and have been waiting and waiting."
Horst Lindner of Seminole agreed.
"It's wonderful to have this place opened," he
said. 'They finally figured it out and got it done."
Eddie Lee, who organized the petition drive to
save the cabin, wore his SOSS (Save Our Snack
Shack) T-shirt as a reminder of the group's perse-
verance. The referendum effort started in early
Lee said the cabin's opening as the Old Snack
Shack is a tribute "to the hundreds of people that
participated at some level to try to save this and to
keep it after it was saved."
Concession operator Mike Janecek said the
months of hard work to get the cabin ready has
been "a labor of love."
'To be able to bring this thing back to life for the
community is a rare privilege," he said.
The Old Snack Shack's current limited menu will
be expanded over the next few weeks, and beer and
wine will be added when an alcohol license is grant-
ed, Rita Janecek said.
She said a grand opening celebration is planned
for the first weekend in October.
purchase of property
CLEARWATER Figuratively wearing their Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency hats on Sept. 7, the
City Council members unanimously approved the
purchase of nearly an entire city block in the city's
crime-ridden East Gateway area.
'This property has presented an acquisition op-
portunity for the CRA at this time, since the proper-
ty has recently been listed for sale and reductions
in (the) asking price have made the acquisition fea-
sible for redevelopment purposes," according to a
staff memo. The property will be "land banked"
until a suitable use for it can be found.
At 96,885 square feet, or 2.2 acres, the purchase
comprises with the exception of three private resi-
dences on Grove Street the entire block bounded
by Grove Street on the north, Cleveland Street on
the south, North Betty Lane on the east and North
Lincoln Avenue on the west. It includes the Econo-
my Inn, the Jem Motel, the Viva Mexico restaurant,
two duplexes on Grove Street and a single-family
residence on the comer of Grove Street and North
'The properties have become a major, continuing
source of blight and inappropriate activity, which is
materially affecting the CRA, city and East Gateway
community's efforts to stabilize and revitalize the
East Gateway area," the staff memo said. 'The mag-
nitude of these problems far exceeds other proper-
ties in the East Gateway area."
The Economy Inn is especially well known to
Clearwater police. Between Sept. 1, 2009 and Aug.
12, 2010, they received 421 calls for service and
129 reports from that motel.
The $1,675,000 purchase will be financed with
an eight-year, $1.9 million loan from the city's Cen-
tral Insurance Fund, which currently has unre-
stricted reserves of $19 million.
Pinellas Park budget hearings

City staff is recommending a property tax rate in-
crease to compensate for decreased property val-
ues, which have caused major budget problems for
local governments across the state during the re-
cent recession. Under the recommendation, the
current tax rate of 4.55 mills or $4.55 for every
$1,000 of taxable property value would increase,
or rollback, to 5.11 mills. Given the corresponding
decrease in property values, residents may or may
not see an increase in the total amount of money
they'll pay in property taxes to the city, despite the
tax rate increase. About 20 percent of the taxes city
residents will pay next year will go to the city of
In its letter to the city council dated July 10, the
city's Citizens' Budget Advisory Committee agreed
with staff in recommending the tax rate increase to
somewhere between 5.10 and 5.15 mills, citing po-
tential decreases in property tax revenue for the
next several years.
'The adoption of the roll-back rate is necessary
for the city to have sufficient recurring revenue to
fund the city's general fund budget in the future
years," it stated.
The letter commended city staff overall for its
proactive efforts to keep expenses low, especially
given the current economic challenges. It also
praised the new air conditioning and lighting sys-
tems at City Hall installed to reduce energy costs in
the coming years, among other efforts.
With the recommended rollback, the city budget,
outlined in the last draft, hasn't changed much
from last year. The city's total budget comes to
about $153 million, which is 3.9 percent more than
the total budget for the 2009-10 year, but 1.3 per-
cent less than the year prior.

The Largo Cultural Center was among the city facilities on the
minds of some residents who spoke to the commission, who com-
plained that it requires massive subsidies.
Commissioner Mary Black said she has asked for cost breakdown of
all the costs of the cultural center, saying questions remain over
what's causing the city to subsidize it $6,000 a week.
She said she knows it's not the Eight O'Clock Theatre.
City Recreation, Parks and Art Director Joan Byme said the over-
head of the theater is causing the subsidies.
In general, she said, the productions and plays and rentals cover
"I'm all in favor of supporting community theater," Black said. "But I
think it's all the other things that are going on at the cultural center
that is causing us to not be able to meet the expenses. And I think
that's what we need to look at."
Gerard said the city needs to look at the use of the building "how
often we rent the rooms out ... and how much we're charging."
Among other budget highlights, wages are frozen for all city employ-
ees, resulting in a projected savings of $915,000.

Since 2005 the city has planted about 853 trees among Largo
streets. The plantings are coordinated each year along with the ex-
pansion of sidewalks.
Larger trees are planted because they get more respect, Brown
said, and are not as prone to vandalism.
"People will just mow over them if they are small," he said.
The city spends about $85,000 on two tree programs. The
money comes from a trust fund that is not financed through tax
According to the urban forest master plan, trees benefit the
community by absorbing pollutants from the air, reducing runoff,
cooling homes, providing a habitat for wildlife and shielding the
public from traffic and noise.
The 2005 tree count indicates that other numerous species in
the city include southern live oak, 1,076; laurel oak, 939; crape
myrtle, 502; slash pine, 431; cabbage palm, 397; Mexican fan
palm, 352, red maple.
The city warranty protects all new plantings for the first two
years. Less than 5 percent of the trees planted within the last five
years have needed replacement, and those trees were replaced by
the contractor at no cost to the city.

Swimmer struck by
DUNEDIN Marine unit deputies responded to
Caladesi Island about 5:30 p.m. Sept. 12 after a
swimmer was struck by a personal watercraft
operated by his friend.
According to Pinellas County Sheriffs
deputies, James C. Alexander, 17, of Palm Har-
bor was operating his 1996 Kawasaki personal
watercraft in the water at the north tip of
Caladesi Island, near Hurricane Pass. He told
deputies that he gave the watercraft some gas,
tried to steer, misjudged his angle and lost con-
trol striking his friend, 17-year-old Joshua M.
Gamble, 17, also of Palm Harbor, who was swim-
ming about 30 feet from shore.
Gamble was struck in the arm and head and
was knocked unconscious.
Alexander immediately jumped off his water-
craft, and with the assistance of another friend,
brought Gamble to shore and called 911. Marine
Unit deputies picked up Dunedin Fire Rescue
personnel at the Honeymoon Island Ferry Dock
and transported them to Caladesi Island.
Gamble was treated on scene and subsequent-
ly transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center
for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Alexander told deputies that he purchased the
personal watercraft about a month ago and had
been having some problem with the steering.
The investigation continues.

Arrests made in
water filtration sales scam
CLEARWATER- Pinellas County sheriffs detec-
tives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit arrested
a suspect on Sept. 10 in connection with a water fil-
tration sales scam.
According to a report from the Sheriffs Office, the
investigation began in mid-August after the daugh-
ter of one of the victims reported the alleged crime.
According to detectives, between the dates of July
9 and Aug. 25, Jonathan Lee Yacketta, 30, a tran-
sient, allegedly conducted door-to-door sales of
water filtration systems targeting the elderly.
Detectives said Yacketta used high pressure sales
tactics and deceptive practices to convince the vic-
tims to either purchase his product or pay him to
service and maintain their current system.
Through the course of the investigation, detec-
tives were able to determine that Yacketta, in a de-
ceitful manner, convinced a 98-year-old Clearwater
man to purchase his product. Yacketta told the vic-
tim that there was a problem with the quality of his
tap water. In a period of four visits to the victim's
home, the victim paid the suspect $1,970 for a re-
verse osmosis system with a lifetime warranty, fil-
ters, an ultra-violet light and other undetermined
products and service. In addition, the products were
not properly installed by the suspect, causing a leak
in the victim's plumbing.
A second case involved an Oldsmar couple. The
suspect initially attempted to sell them $1,500
worth of equipment. When they declined, the sus-
pect succeeded in getting them to pay him $150 to
run a test and provide maintenance for their exist-
Yacketta was arrested at about 8:45 p.m. Sept.
10 at a private residence located in Clearwater. He
was arrested for two counts of felony exploitation of
the elderly and various other misdemeanor charges,
including home solicitation without a permit, home
solicitation written agreement required and violation
of water treatment device requirement.
News Channel 8 reporter Mark Douglas assisted
detectives in this investigation.
Detectives believe there may be other victims and
are asking anyone with information to contact De-
tective Steve Bingham of the Economic Crimes Unit

Commission awards bid for Fort De Soto rehabilitation
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER The historical fort at Fort De Soto Park will be
getting some repairs soon.
Pinellas County Commissioners awarded on Sept. 7 a $1.1 mil-
lion bid to Caladesi Construction Co. in Largo to repair the struc-
According to a staff report, roofs are leaking because the internal
drainage structure has failed. Work includes concrete work and
construction of a roof drainage system. The work will be done con-
sistent with the historical designation of the structure and is expect-
ed to take 120 days.
Caladesi was the low bidder on the project at just over $1.1 mil-
lion. The engineering estimate was nearly $1.3 million. Other bid-
ders were David Nelson Construction at almost $1.4 million and
Tampa Contracting Services at just over $1.4 million.
The project will be paid for from Penny for Pinellas funding,
$246,000 from the Save America's Treasures federal grant program
and a $500,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental
History of Fort De Soto
On April 4, 1900, the U.S. Military named its Mullet Key fort Fort
De Soto after explorer Hemando De Soto, who is believed to have
come ashore somewhere between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater in
The fort was abandoned on May 25, 1923.
Pinellas County purchased the 271-acre site on Mullet Key for
$12,500 on Sept. 29, 1938, according to information found at
www.pinellascounty.org. By that time, only 26 of the original buildings
were left standing after hurricanes passed through in October 1921,
September 1926 and September 1935.
In 1940, the War Department decided to turn the area into a bomb-
ing range and the land was returned to military status. On Aug. 11,
1948, at the end of World War II, Mulley Key was sold back to Pinellas
County for $26,495. The purchase included the original 271 acres
plus an additional 613 acres. Fort De Soto Park was officially dedicat-
ed on May 11, 1963.
Many of the original buildings are still standing, including an ordi-
nance storehouse, stable, wagon shed, oil house, water tank, pump
house, searchlight shelter, quartermaster storehouse, bakery, civilian
quarters, fire apparatus house, post exchange, mess hall and kitchen,
barracks, observation tower and more.
Fort De Soto Park is at 3500 Pinellas Bayway S. in Tierra Verde.
The park is made up of five islands or keys: Madelaine Key, St. Jean
Key, St. Christopher Key, Bonnie Fortune Key and the main island of
Mullet Key. The keys total 1,136 acres with more than six miles of

County establishes volunteer green building program
By SUZETTE PORTER
County is offering incentives to
people who voluntarily follow ap-
proved green-building practices.
The county plans to promote
and support green certified
buildings that contribute to a
sustainable and natural environ-
ment, according to a staff report.
County commissioners adopt-
ed a resolution on Sept. 7 estab-
lishing the new voluntary green
building program, which is a
collaborative effort between
county Extension and Building
& Development Review Services.
The program defines a volun-
tary certification-based program
and provides incentives for
building green. Incentives in-
clude expedited reviews for
green building projects and
recognition on county mapping
Commission Chair Karen Seel
asked how people would get the
incentives since certification is
not done until after a building is
"Leap of faith," said Assistant
County Administrator Mark
People applying for a building
permit as part of the program
must include an appropriate
checklist from one of the recog-
nized green-building organiza-
tions. Green building standards
will include those developed by
the Florida Green Building
Coalition, the U.S. Green Build-
ing Council and the National As-
sociation of Home Builders.
People taking part in the coun-
ty's program will be certified by
a third party representative.
According to the resolution,
applicants that fail to keep com-
mitments made when submit-
ting their permit application for
the program may be deemed in-
eligible for any future expedited
Extension's part in the pro-
gram will include posting re-
sources and information about
green building certifying entities
on its website. Extension also
will develop appropriate and
necessary application proce-
dures and supporting program
materials, implement a county
database that monitors and
tracks the green features and
ratings of homes and buildings
developed countywide. A system
will be developed to monitor the
impact of green building within
The program will include sev-
eral sub-programs, including
ones for new residential and
subdivision construction; resi-
dential retrofitting and remodel-
ing; new commercial and
nonresidential construction; and
commercial and nonresidential
retrofitting and remodeling.

Light east winds spark awesome bite off the beach
The transition to fall fishing
is upon us.
It may still be hot, but judg-
ing by the recent outings on
the water, change is definitely
in the air.
A long stretch of light east
winds have sparked an awe-
some bite right off the beach.
Mackerel, cobia and tarpon can
be targeted within sight of sand
castles and sun bathers.
As you make your way north
or south along the beach it's
hard not to notice the feeding
frenzies that are occurring.
Flocks of terns and pelicans
can be seen hovering and div-
ing into massive pods of bait
fish that are being attacked by
schools of mackerel, jack
crevalle and at times 50- to 80-
Anchoring in those same
areas and chumming the wa-
ters with live bait as well as cut
bait and a frozen chum block
will bring the feeding frenzy
right behind your boat. Free
line pilchards on long shank
hooks to hook-up on the mack-
erel. Keep a heavier rod out as
well for a chance at any tarpon
that might be cruising the area,
best bait for them would be a
live threadfin or pinfish.
Cobia are a real possibility as
well. We've caught or at least
had chances to catch a cobia
on almost every trip this past
week. Your best chance to get a
cast off to one of these guys
would be to have a rod rigged
and ready with a 40 pound
leader and a sturdy hook. Cast
almost any live bait at them
you should get bit.
Bait catching has been easy
with the onset of the light east
winds. Find the diving pelicans
right off the beach and you'll be
in the right area. Small boaters
can slide right over the outside
sand bar up into the swash
channel where schools of
pilchards can be found. Use a
quarter inch mesh cast net in
order to help prevent grilling of
any of the smaller baits.
Tyson Wallerstein can be
reached at capt.tyson@hotmail
.com. To get a fish photo in the
paper, send the photo along
with your name, when and
where it was caught to edito
email@example.com or mail it to

Revolutionary War records available on websites
Military records are a source
of much information that is of
value to genealogists. That infor-
mation can range from the stan-
dard birth, marriage, death
date-and-place stuff to informa-
tion about war wounds, battles
fought, family history, and eco-
nomic conditions. It is no won-
der that sooner or later we would
want to search for these records.
Military records are a broad
field, so I am going to focus on
one group of these records in
particular Revolutionary War
Records. Military records can be
divided into two broad cate-
gories: those created while the
person was in the service and
those created after the period of
service. Ironically, the records
created after the person left the
military often contain the most
Some of the records you will
find that were created while the
person was on duty are muster
rolls, payrolls, casualty lists, unit
returns (think of these as unit
status reports), service records,
and various other lists. In these
types of records you will find in-
formation about where the per-
son was when the list was made,
possibly what he was doing (sick,
on detached duty), how much
money he was paid or was owed,
and the date the record was
made. Enlistment information is
also occasionally found stuck
into some of the records.
One of those listed records in
particular is rather interesting:
the compiled service records.
Each soldier has a record jacket
that was prepared after the war
containing cards with extrac-
tions of information from reports
that apply to that person. A
muster roll, for example, con-
tains the names of all of the sol-
diers present in a unit on a
particular day. The information
for each of those soldiers was
recorded on an individual card
and placed into his record jack-
et. Presumably this was done for
all types of records that con-
tained information on multiple
individuals. The result was what
is called the soldier's compiled
service record. The original
records that applied to one indi-
vidual alone were put into the
file, or were often transcribed in
total and included (this could in-
clude enlistment records, for ex-
The records that were created
after the person left the service
generally have to do with the ap-
plication for, or the payment of,
benefits. These records could
apply to the soldier or his benefi-
ciaries, usually his widow. It is
in these records that you will
find a treasure trove of genealog-
ical information. Just think of a
pension application, for example.
The soldier would have to pro-
vide evidence of his service, his
economic condition, family infor-
mation, and his physical condi-
tion ... all of this to prove that he
was authorized by his service to
apply for, and that he met the
requirements to deserve, a bene-
fit. If the applicant was his
widow, she would have to pro-
vide the same information as
well as prove that she was mar-
ried to the service member (often
you will find actual marriage cer-
tificates in the application file; if
not the original, then certainly
affidavits by ministers or others
that attest to the marriage).
Pension applications can be
voluminous. Where a complied
service file might be five or six
cards, pension applications can
be from 20 to 120 pages long.
One of the reasons for this is
that over time, the law specifying
the requirements to receive a
pension changed. Veterans
would file multiple times as they
thought they would finally quali-
fy under the latest criteria. All of
their applications, unsuccessful
as well as successful, will be in
If the veteran's widow applied
for a pension, or the continua-
tion of one that had been grant-
ed to her deceased husband,
that paperwork will be in the
same file as the veteran's appli-
cation. And if the veteran was
awarded any bounty lands, an-
other form of benefit, that paper-
work is included in the same
pension file. This is good news
for us researchers, because it
keeps us from having to search
several different places for any
pension related information.
There are several ways to get
Revolutionary War military
records. The fool-proof way is to
pay to get them from the Nation-
al Archives. Their website www.
archives.gov gives you the infor-
mation on how to order the
records you want using a form
and the postal service, or how to
order online. The cost will range
from $25 to $75 depending on
what records you want. Heritage

tionary War pension files online
that you can download. You can
usually access that website for
free through your library portal.
has full pension files as well as
payrolls, muster rolls, unit re-
turns, and compiled service
records. Ancestry, www.ances
try.com, also has various index-
es to record sets, as well as on-
line images of the records
themselves. Footnote and Ances-
try are fee sites, but they more
than pay for themselves if you
have to order several sets of files
from the National Archives.

on park fees
County commissioners wisely rejected a staff plan to charge park
fees and will fund a $900,000 budget shortfall from a reserve fund.
Commissioner Calvin Harris said that the county is not in such dire
straits that the county has to raise the fees. Agreed.
Granted, county commissioners face tough choices in trying to bal-
ance their budget. A decrease in property taxes spurred by tax-cut
measures and the economic downturn has forced local governments in
Florida to eliminate positions, free salaries and cut services.
If county commissioners find themselves needing to continue to
siphon money from reserves next year to fund government operations,
then they should consider levying fees or reducing hours at the parks
or take other steps, but that should be the last resort.
Certainly, users' fees are an appropriate source of revenue. But at a
time when many residents are struggling to make ends meet, they
should be able to take comfort in knowing that the can enjoy the coun-
ty's outstanding parks at minimal cost for as long as reasonably possi-

Business as usual
I couldn't turn away from
MSNBC's replay Saturday of
Sept. 11, 2001, just as it hap-
pened in real time shortly before
9 a.m. on that horrible morning
nine years ago. I tearfully took in
the first hour of the rebroadcast,
remembering, while preparing to
go about business as usual on a
We will never forget how a typi-
cal day suddenly turned extraor-
dinarily horrifying on Sept. 11.
Watching it again, it seemed like
yesterday. For our country, busi-
ness as usual stopped in an in-
stant, as so many lives were lost
and others were forever changed
when the face of evil went about
its business as usual terrorizing
Americans and spreading fear
and hatred through violence.
The weeks leading up to Sept.
11, 2010 were troubling. First
there was the heated debate,
which still continues, over
whether the Islamic community
center and mosque, intended to
be a place of peace, worship and
education, should be built so
close to Ground Zero. Then a
pastor of questionable judgment,
to say the least, decided it would
be a really good idea to bum the
Quran on Sept. 11.
Pastor Terry Jones and his le-
gion of a few dozen or so followers
quickly caught the attention of
national media, as all too fre-
quently happens in this age of
24/7 news channels, the Inter-
net, and social networking. While
I am admittedly a news junkie,
when a local story like that
sprouts wings and takes off
worldwide, I am annoyed and
What comes to mind regarding
the mosque and the pastor is the
difference between having the
right and what is right. I am am-
bivalent on the Islamic center.
While the mosque planners have
every right to lawfully build what-
ever they please, wherever they
please, picking a site near
Ground Zero can be seen as in-
sensitive and inappropriate. It re-
opens wounds that run deep for
so many people, particularly
those personally affected by
9/11. Yet, the community center
just might succeed in educating
and building bridges toward
greater religious tolerance.
I abhor the growing hatred to-
ward all Muslims, which is based
on ignorance and fear. Still, my
gut tells me that in the spirit of
compassion and compromise, it
would be best to find another lo-
cation for the Islamic center. On
the other hand, how far from
Ground Zero is far enough? For
some, nowhere on the face of this
Earth would suffice.
As for Jones and his Dove
World Outreach flock of a few,
sure they have the right to bum
the Quran, but I cannot fathom
how a man of God could ever
consider desecrating another
faith's holy scripture. Fortunate-
ly, the whacko pastor called the
whole thing off in the 11th hour.
Unfortunately, some damage had
already been done, as Islamic ex-
tremists and others seized the
opportunity to react with outrage,
burning American flags and effi-
gies of the Gainesville goofball
It is understandable that peo-
ple with limited access to the
truth could be easily convinced
by those who hate us that this
nobody pastor represented Amer-
icans as a whole. Kind of like
thinking all Muslims are terror-
ists. It is insanity to give hate-
mongers such an easy
I am outraged at the thought of
the American flag or the Holy
Bible in flames. I am equally out-
raged when so-called Christians
stoop to similar despicable, disre-
spectful depths. I've always be-
lieved that Americans are better
than that. I still believe it, though
my faith has been shaken by the
hateful anti-Obama displays seen
at tea party gatherings and such.
Agree with him or not, like him
or not, Barack Obama is the
president of the United States
and all Americans should treat
him with respect this from a kid
raised in D.C. amid all the politi-
cal turbulence of the '60s. I guess
you are never too old to finally
I hung my American flag first
thing in the morning on Sept. 11,
said a prayer for peace and un-
derstanding, and went about

Column is a goldmine
Compared with Bob Driver's drivel on "What kind of president do we
want," Jona Goldberg's "Is Islamophobia to blame? Not really," is a ver-
itable goldmine with its concluding gem: 'When, pray tell, will Time

Largo resident's son serves as Army medical instructor
By AIR FORCE STAFF SGT. JESSICA SWTIZER
LARGO The son of a Largo man is training oth-
ers to provide medical care to fellow service mem-
bers and their families.
Army Maj. John F. Detro, son of Jack Detro of
Largo, is an instructor for the Interservice Physi-
cian Assistant Program at the Army Medical De-
partment in Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio,
"I became a physician assistant because, in the
Army, they are the first medical officer to care for
the troops," s aid Detro, a 1981 graduate of Erie
Mason High School, Erie, Mich. He went on to earn
a bachelor's degree from Siena Heights University,
Adrian, Mich., in 1985.
The program has been training about 95 percent
of the physician assistants in the Army, Air Force,
Coast Guard and Navy since 1996. Prior to 1996,
each service trained physician assistants separate-
ly. The rest enter the military with previous train-
ing and qualifications.
"I enjoy being an instructor for IPAP," said Detro.
"However, with it there is great responsibility. My
daughter is a soldier, so I expect every graduate to
be competent to take care of her in garrison and in
combat. It's why I'm so tough on my students;
every soldier out there is someone's child."
The IPAP is a commissioning program, and
many of the students are enlisted members. By the
time they graduate from the program they will be
commissioned as first lieutenants. The students
spend 12 months at Fort Sam Houston for in class
training and labs where they learn the hands-on
skills they will need in the field, by practicing on
"The program is a difficult one," said Detro. "Not
everyone can make it. There's a lot of stuff to cram
into a year of classroom education and then they
go out and put into practice on real patients."
Once they have completed the classroom learn-
ing, Detro's students then go to military hospitals
around the world for 12 months of clinical training.
They will rotate through several specialties to get
more hands-on experience with real patients before
they graduate from the program with a master's
degree in Health Science from the University of Ne-
braska Medical Center.
Physician assistants are the most deployed med-
ical officer in the Army. And while nearly three
quarters of the students already have a medical
background and more than half of them have al-
ready deployed in support of Operations Iraqi Free-
dom and Enduring Freedom, they can expect to
spend a lot of their future careers, in the field,
helping other service members.

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 cornerstone 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 various configurations, Crosby,
Stills and Nash have continued to tour and record as "three to-
gether." In June of last year, CSN released "Demos" on Rhino
Records. Featuring 12 previously unreleased tracks recorded be-
tween 1968 and 1971, "Demos" spotlights destined-to-be-classic
songs later heard on CSN's group and solo titles. The disc opens
with the trio harmonizing on "Marrakesh Express," recorded 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 Time Gone."

LARGO The intricacies of homi-
urtan C l cide are being examined on the
Curtiln Call Tonne Playhouse stage in a superb
SG i Clark Zumpe local rendition of a classic comedy-
Eight O'Clock Theatre's produc-
tion of "Deathtrap" runs through
Sept. 19 at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo.
Director Linda Woodruff Weir has put together an entrancing tale of
suspense and subterfuge that blends humor, action and apprehension
seamlessly. Weir and her key players know how to exploit a comedic
moment for laughter as skillfully as they take advantage of some of the
more intense and violent scenes to keep audiences on the edge of their
"Deathtrap," by Ira Levin, possesses a certain symmetry that makes
it all the more appealing. Billed as "a thriller in two acts," the first body
hits the floor in the first act and it may seem like that leaves few puz-
zle pieces to put together after the intermission. The second act,
though, is as exhilarating as the first, with fresh plot twists and ex-
pertly interlaced ambiguities that keep the audience guessing who the
next victim may be.
Take two playwrights one a veteran whose career has stalled after
a string of successful thrillers, the other a novice hoping for his first
big break; add a wealthy wife whose fortune has been drained as she
supports her husband through his long dry spell; and throw in a nosy
Dutch psychic neighbor and an attorney (who also once dreamed of
being a playwright) for good measure.
Murder is bound to happen under the circumstances, right?
As "Deathtrap" opens, the audience is introduced to accomplished
writer Sidney Bruhl who cannot seem to find inspiration for his next
big play. In fact, after that string of successes, he endured a few flops,
too, and he's clearly becoming desperate.
When he reads a play submitted to him by young Clifford Anderson,
he hints at the prospect of committing murder in order to steal it.
Five characters parade through one set: Sidney's study, found in
the couple's centuries-old home in Westport, Conn., is adorned with a
variety of weapons- most props from productions of his plays. Set de-
signer Tom Hansen has done a marvelous job transforming the Tonne
Playhouse stage into this convincing setting.
Tim Rankin plays Sidney Bruhl with perfect pacing, manipulating
the audience shrewdly. There are plenty of twists in the plot, and
Rankin makes them all credible.
As Trey Ryan, Clifford Anderson has the most fun shocking the au-
dience: mild-mannered one moment, intense the next. The actor com-
municates his character's hidden agenda without uttering a word in a
splendidly restrained performance. When the scene calls for vigor,
though, Anderson virtually explodes making audience members

Patricia Bates Smith, whose portrayal of Ouiser in last season's
EOT production of "Steel Magnolias" earned her a Lary Award nomi-
nation, is delightfully eccentric as the oddball psychic Helga ten Dorp.
She emphasizes the character's nonconformist strangeness, giving her
a disposition that is simultaneously daffy and uncanny.
Lynne Coleman portrays Myra Bruhl, Sidney's wife. She serves as
an envoy for audience members, vocalizing her anxiety and asking the
one question on everyone's mind: Is Sidney desperate enough to kill
Jim Bennett plays Porter Milgrim, Sidney's attorney, a supporting
but pivotal role. Bennett worked overtime on "Deathtrap," doubling as
assistant director for the production.
Performances of Eight O'Clock Theatre's production of "Deathtrap"
are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m. Matinees are Sundays, 2 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students. Call 587-6793 or visit

Director: Anthony Bell and Ben
What makes for the ultimate

angry bears, prickly porcupines and
a golfing goose with a duck caddy.
Just ask Kate and Humphrey,
two wolves who are trying to get
home after being taken by park
rangers and shipped halfway across
the country. Humphrey is an
Omega wolf, whose days are about
quick wit, snappy one-liners and
hanging with his motley crew of
fun-loving wolves and video-gaming

Five strangers in Philadelphia
begin their day with the most com-
monplace of routines.
They walk into an office tower
and enter an elevator. As they con-
vene into this single place, they are
forced to share a confined space
with strangers. Nobody acknowl-
edges anybody else. They'll only be
together for a few moments. But
what appears to be a random oc-
currence is anything but coinciden-
tal when the car becomes stuck.
Fate has come calling. Today these
strangers will have their secrets re-
vealed, and face a reckoning for
Slowly, methodically, their situa-
tion turns from one of mere annoy-
ance to sheer helplessness and
abject terror. Terrible things begin
to happen to each of them, one by
one, and suspicion shifts as to who

Director: Ben Affleck
There are over 300 bank rob-
beries in Boston every year. And a
one-square-mile neighborhood in
Boston, called Charlestown, has
produced more bank and armored
car robbers than anywhere in the
One of them is Doug MacRay
(Ben Affleck), but he is not cut from
the same cloth as his fellow thieves.
Unlike them, Doug had a chance at
success, a chance to escape follow-
ing in his father's criminal foot-
steps. Instead he became the leader
of a crew of ruthless bank robbers,
who pride themselves on taking
what they want and getting out
clean. The only family Doug has are
his partners in crime, especially
Jem (Jeremy Renner), who, despite
his dangerous, hair-trigger temper,
is the closest thing Doug ever had
to a brother.
However, everything changed on
the gang's last job when Jem briefly
took a hostage: bank manager
Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). When
they discover she lives in
Charlestown, Jem gets nervous and
wants to check out what she might
Knowing what Jem is capable of,
Doug takes charge. He seeks out
Claire, who has no idea that their
encounter is not by chance or that
this charming stranger is one of the
men who terrorized her only days
As his relationship with Claire
deepens into a passionate romance,
Doug wants out of this life and the
town. But with the Feds, led by
Agent Frawley (Jon Hamm), closing
in and Jem questioning his loyalty,
Doug realizes that getting out will
not be easy and, worse, may put
Claire in the line of fire. Any choices
he once had have boiled down to
one: betray his friends or lose the
woman he loves.
The following will open in limited
release. It may be several weeks be-
fore these films appear in local movie
Director: Ariel Schulman and
In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel
Schulman and Henry Joost sensed
a story unfolding as they began to
film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev.
They had no idea that their proj-
ect would lead to the most exhila-
rating and unsettling months of
their lives. A reality thriller that is a
shocking product of our times, Cat-
fish is a riveting story of love, decep-
tion and grace within a labyrinth of
'Jack Goes Boating'
Genre: Drama and romance
Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman,
Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne
Rubin-Vega and Tom McCarthy
Director: Philip Seymour Hoff-
"Jack Goes Boating" is a tale of
love, betrayal, friendship and grace
centered around two working-class
New York City couples.
Jack (Philip Seymour Hoffman)
and Connie (Amy Ryan) are two sin-
gle people who on their own might
continue to recede into the anony-
mous background of the city, but in
each other begin to find the courage
and desire to pursue their budding
relationship. In contrast, the couple
that introduced them, Clyde (John
Ortiz) and Lucy (Daphne Rubin-
Vega), are confronting unresolved
issues in their marriage.
Jack is a limo driver with vague
dreams of landing a job with the
MTA and an obsession with reggae
that has prompted him to begin a
half-hearted attempt at growing
dreadlocks. He spends most of his
time hanging out with his best
friend and fellow driver Clyde and
Clyde's wife Lucy.
The couple set Jack up with Con-
nie, Lucy's co-worker at a Brooklyn
funeral home. Being with Connie
inspires Jack to learn to cook pur-
sue a new career and take swim-
ming lessons from Clyde so he can
give Connie the romantic boat ride
she dreams of. But as Jack and
Connie cautiously circle commit-
ment, Clyde and Lucy's marriage
begins to disintegrate. From there,
we watch as each couple comes
face to face with the inevitable path
of their relationship.
'Never Let Me Go'
Genre: Fantasy and thriller
Cast: Keira Knightley, Andrew
Garfield, Carey Mulligan, Charlotte
Rampling and Sally Hawkins
Director: Mark Romanek
In his highly acclaimed novel
"Never Let Me Go," Kazuo Ishiguro
created a remarkable story of love,
loss and hidden truths.
In it he posed the fundamental
question: What makes us human?
Now director Mark Romanek, writer
Alex Garland and DNA Films bring
Ishiguro's hauntingly poignant and
emotional story to the screen.
Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Tommy
(Andrew Garfield) and Ruth (Keira
Knightley) live in a world and a time
that feel familiar to us, but are not
quite like anything we know. They
spend their childhood at Hailsham,
a seemingly idyllic English boarding
school. When they leave the shelter
of the school and the terrible truth
of their fate is revealed to them,
they must also confront the deep
feelings of love, jealousy and betray-
al that threaten to pull them apart.

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.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach
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.
2010 BP, E&P
