A 2 1/2 foot eastern diamondback rattlesnake blends in with its surroundings in Walsingham Park. The
eastern diamondback is the largest venomous snake in North America, some reaching 8 feet in length. They
are feared as aggressive and deadly but are averse to human contact. This rattlesnake held still just long
enough to have its picture taken, and then turned and crawled into the woods.

LARGO City commissioners feel they
are in a stalemate with county government
over boundaries of a planning area.
An agreement between the city and coun-
ty that identifies a Largo Planning Service
Area, established in 2000, will expire on
Sept. 30. City community development offi-
cials said they were contacted in April by
county planning officials to inquire whether
the city wished to renew the agreement
using service area boundaries proposed by
the county. Negotiations were unsuccessful
and several letters were exchanged.
City officials proposed that the city and
county renew the current agreement for two
years using the map that has been in place
'"The PSA (Planning Service Area) is a
valuable tool for planning purposes and it
would be beneficial to keep the agreement
in place," Community Development Dimector

Brian Smith, director of the Pinellas
County Planning department, said in a
Sept. 7 letter to stricklin that the city's plan-
ning area includes locations such as the St.
Petersburg-Cleanvater Intemnational Airport,
which does not conform to what the county
has defined as an acceptable planning area.
Commissioner Harriet Cmozier said at the
commission meeting Sept. 21 that she
would like to see a letter written by the
mayor in "nice way" to county commission-
ers saying that the city is not getting any-

county commissioners and discuss the

port to remain in our planning district,"
Commissioner Robert Murray agreed,
saying that a letter from the mayor letting
county commissioners know "where we are
in this stalemate is very important." Other
The interlocal agreement stems fmom the
recognition that numerous parcels of unin-
corporated land subject to the planning ju-
risdiction of the county are enclaves and
could be subject to voluntary annexation by
the city. However, the properties were out-
side the planning jurisdiction of the city.
The agreement says that procedures are
needed to provide for orderly planning for
future development in the unincorporated
area and the city.

CLEARWATER- Adedicated communi-
ty volunteer who has been a leading local
advocate in the campaign against human
trafficking was named the Largo Mid-
Pinellas Chamber of Commerce citizen of
the year Sept. 17 at the chamber's annual
June Wallace, 75, oversees a 93-mem-
ber coalition of nongovernmental, civic
and faith-base organizations, victim serv-
ice agencies and interested citizens.
"As the facilitation of the Community
Campaign against Human Trafficking,
(Wallace) works tirelessly with local and
regional chapters of Soroptimist Interna-
tional, local businesses, area law enforce-
ment and anyone else who will listen
about the devastating and pervasive ef-
fects human trafficking has on us all,"
said Laurie Bunce, chairman of the
Chamber of Commerce.
Wallace has been a member of Soropti-
mist Intemnational for more than 23 years,
a worldwide organization for women in
management and professions that works
thorough service projects to advance
human rights and the status of women.
Wallace said she was "totally blown

humility on behalf of the Soroptimist or-
"We have passed out more than
150,000 of our 'loves me, loves me not
bookmarks' for domestic violence, and

ness with the campaign against human
trafficking. Those are the centerpieces
that keep us moving fonvard," she said.
Wallace's business background has
been as a certified financial planner. She
is one of the founding members of the
chamber's Women in Business Council
and has encouraged the growth of the
group during the past year.

CLEARWATER Nearly all candidates for the
Largo City Commission agreed Sept. 20 that commis-
sioners' terms should be extended to four years to
save the city thousands of dollars in election costs.
The candidates discussed the issue at a Largo Re-
publican Club debate at Alfano's Restaurant.
The issue will be on the Nov. 2 ballot in the form of
a city charter amendment.
Last year the city election cost $70,000 for one
seat on the ballot with only two candidates running,
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said, in support of the

John Atanasio, who is running for Seat 6 against
incumbent Woody Brown and Doug Lardner, spoke
against the four-year terms. He said "he would like to
see new faces on the commission."
"Don't make it comfortable for somebody to sit
there 6, 7, 9, 10, 12 years ..."

all six candidates. Under the format for most of the

The state's August unemployment news was a mixed bag higher
unemployment rates and an increase in the number of jobs.
"Although Florida's unemployment rate has slightly increased,
there are still positive indicators of recovery. This is the second con-
secutive month with an increase in the number of jobs from the pre-
vious year," Agency for Workplace Innovation Director Cynthia R.
Lorenzo said in a press release.
According to the numbers released Sept. 17, Florida's unemploy-
ment rose to 11.7, 0.2 percentage points higher than July's rate.
Unemployment is up 0.3 percentage points in Pinellas County
with August coming in at 12.1 compared to 11.8 in July. The coun-
ty's unemployment rate is 0.8 percent higher than August 2009.
Pinellas County's August labor force was reported at 452,419 as
compared to 451,958 in July and 450,981 in August 2009.
Liberty County reported the lowest unemployment in the state at
7.5 percent. Hendry County had the highest at 20.6 percent. Pinel-
las ranked in the middle at No. 34 out of 67.

In an unexpected move, Pinellas suncoast Tran-
sit Authority Executive Director Tim Garling an-
nounced his resignation on Sept. 15.
His last day on the job will be Oct. 18.
In a letter to the PSTA board, Garling writes,
"with mixed emotions, I am writing to inform the
PSTA Board of Directors that I have been offered
the position of director of transit for Broward
Garling did not apply for the job in Broward
County, according to Bob Lasher, manager of
PSTA Community Relations. The job offer came as
the result of a recommendation from his former
"He (Garling) says that he wasn't looking for a
new job," Lasher said. "He says that his
former boss worked in Broward and
recommended him for the position. Tim
says the call and offer were 'out of the ,
blue' and that he'll miss the area and ,
our award-winning beaches dearly.
"For those of us who have worked
with him, there's no doubt about how
much he loves the Tampa Bay area."
In his letter, Garling said that Tim Garl
Broward County Transit is the second
largest transit system in the state and provides
about approximately 40 million rides on an annual
basis. In comparison, PSTA's total ridership is 12.2
million annually, according to psta.net.
"Providing public transit service to the 16th
largest county in the United states offers signifi-
cant challenges and opportunities for me
professionally," he said.
Garling began work at PSTA in 2007
after a six-month nationwide search. He
has nearly 30 years in the transportation
industry. His salary is $153,524.
Lasher said the board would appoint an
interim director and begin a new search
for Garling's replacement. Meanwhile, the
gPSTA directors will handle his duties.
"We have really good experienced direc-
tors who can do the job in the interim," Lasher
He said under Garling's leadership, a momen-
tum had been built for improving transit in Pinel-
las and the Tampa Bay area.
"He's been working really hard and has built up
a coalition to move transit forward in the area,"
Lasher said. "There's no controversy here. Tim
spent his whole life in New York and Portland. He
loves our beaches. He loves Tampa Bay."
Garling spoke about the progress made in his
"I would like to commend the PSTA Board of Di-
rectors for your leadership in charting a practical
vision for not only the transit system, but also the
economic development, land use and long-term fu-
ture of Pinellas County.
"~The future success of the transit system, as well
as the public's approval of a long-term sustainable
funding source, will require the development of a
shared vision, community wide partnerships and
persistence. I am confident in Pinellas County's
ability to make the 'vsion' a reality."

Mail ballots are growing in popularity in Pinel-
In the Aug. 24 primary election, nearly 59 per-
cent of voters participated using a mail ballot.
Less than 2 percent voted early at one of the Su-
pervisor of Elections offices and just over 39 per-
cent took that traditional trip to the polls on
"We're really happy our voters understand the
convenience of choosing that method (mail bal-
lot)," said Nancy Whitlock, communications di-
rector for the Supervisor of Elections Office.
Voting by mail has many advantages, she said,
including giving voters more time to study the
ballot and make decisions. In addition, the paper
ballot voters receive in the mail is identical to the
ballot available during early voting and on Elec-
tion Day at the polls.
The Elections office mailed 4,200 ballots to
military personnel and overseas voters for the
Nov. 2 general election on Sept. 16. Workers
began sending out an additional 238,700 to local
registered voters on Sept. 20.
The last day to register to vote for the Nov. 2
election is Oct. 4. Oct. 27 is the last day to re-
quest a ballot be mailed, although a ballot can
be picked up at any of the Elections offices
through Election Day. Early voting is scheduled
The August primary set a record in Pinellas for
the highest percentage of mail ballot voters of
any countywide election. Prior to that, the 2009
St. Petersburg Municipal Election held the
record with 51 percent participating via mail bal-
The 2008 election started the trend with a 400
percent increase in requests for mail ballots hap-
pening between the presidential primary and the
general election. Whitlock attributes the increase
to the change in the county's voter system that
allowed the same ballot to be available whether
voting at home or at the polls.
"Having the same ballot changed some minds,"
Mail ballots took the place of absentee ballots
in 2001 when the state passed election reform
laws. The legislation went into effect in 2002.
Whitlock said another benefit of the increasing
popularity of mail ballots is that it saves money.
She said as more people vote by mail, fewer
polling places are needed, thus cutting down on
the number of poll workers that must be hired,
and fewer ballots have to be printed for polling
Having more people vote by mail also speeds
up availability of results after the polls close.
State law allows mail ballots to be opened six
days before Election Day. Election workers begin
running mail ballots through the optical scan-
ners on the Wednesday before but suppress the
results until after the polls close, she said.
Early voting hours, in effect Oct. 18-31, will be
between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., allowing more time
for people to cast ballots after work.
Elections offices also will be open from 8 a.m.
to noon on Saturday and Sunday. In addition,
drop off locations for mail ballots will remain
open on Election Day.
To request a mail ballot and additional infor-
mation, call 464-6788.

CLEARWATER Cathy Larkin-Richards has
played a number of roles in the lives of the children
she represents over the last seven years.
As a guardian ad litem, she is their voice in
court when their parents abuse or neglect them or
when the adults in their lives end up in jail or ad-
dicted to drugs. She makes sure they have cloth-
ing, school books, teddy bears, bicycles and
blankets. She's delivered dozens of birthdays,
Christmases and holidays to their doorsteps.
She makes sure their parents learn how to be-
come better parents, or she finds a close relative
who will do a better job. She's ushered at least four
children through the process of being adopted into
a new family.
She's been called "Aunt Cathy"' and "Grandma."
Some children, not understanding the Latin part of
her title, call her their "guardian angel," maybe not
unintentionally. One 8-year-old girl called her
"guardian ad lightening."
'They're just neat kids that bond to us quickly,"
she said. "As a guardian, we're a constant pres-
ence, sometimes the only consistent person in
their life. We help the system provide for the child."
Sometimes, what a child needs most is the per-
sistence of a "squeaky wheel," someone who fights
for their best interest and needs, she said.
Larkin-Richards, of Seminole, is a full-time vol-
unteer with the Guardian ad Litem Program for
Florida's Sixth Judicial Circuit Court, which en-
compasses Pinellas and Pasco counties. Around
3,000 children are under supervision in the Sixth
Circuit, about 900 in Pasco County and 2,100 in
Pinellas County. They represent 10 percent of all
court-supervised children in the state of Florida,
more children than any other circuit handles.
The court decides the fate of children who are
victims of neglect or abuse. In such cases, both the
mother and father are each represented by a
lawyer, one the state is required to provide if they
can't afford it,
No one is required to speak for the child. So, in
the most difficult or contested cases, a judge will
order a guardian ad litem as an independent voice
on the child's behalf.
"The judges want us on these cases because
they know that they're going to give information
from us, the guardian ad litem, that they wouldn't
get from anyone else," said John Zucker, commu-
nity relations coordinator and five-year volunteer
for the program. "Nationwide studies have proven
that the judges follow our recommendations 80 to
90 percent of the time. If they don't, it's because
the law won't let them."
Children who are represented by a guardian go
through the state courts twice as fast, with half as
many ending up in a foster home, Zucker said.
The problem is, the circuit's 650 guardians can
cover only half of the children in the system,
Guardian Ad Litem Circuit Director Donna Ras-
'W~e don't have enough resources. We handle the
more serious cases," she said. "Unfortunately, a lot
of the stories are similar."
Often drugs are involved, sometimes physical
abuse. Other times, parents are in and out of their
children's lives or just can't afford to care for them
Guardians do more than represent children in
court. Their job is to get to know the children
through monthly visits and through their own in-
vestigative work. They need to be the eyes and ears
of the state team put together to protect the chil-
dren, said Zucker, who hosts weekly orientations
for new guardians.
"Just because a child has fallen into the system,
they should have everything you'd like your chil-
dren to have. What we do is try to maintain that
normalcy for them," he said. "We don't expect the
guardian to spend any of their money. They just
need to see the need, communicate that and we
will work to fill that need."
Zucker calls it the "fairy godparent" part of a
guardian ad litem's role. One of his first cases was
a family of three children whose father had beat
them with a stick and slammed his daughters
against the wall by their hair. After the state re-
moved them from that situation, Zucker learned
that the oldest 13-year-old girl had lost her glasses
and was struggling in school without them.
He called his guardian ad litem case coordinator,
who knew where the girl could get an eye exam
and glasses for free.
(YTwo days later, the young lady had her new
glasses," Zucker said. "It might have taken a
month for the state bureaucracy to accomplish
what we accomplished here in a very short amount
Later, after the children were placed back with
their mother, Zucker got a call from her, when the
colder months set in. The Guardian Ad Litem
Foundation of Tampa Bay, an associated nonprofit
that raises funds on the program's behalf, gave the
mother $200 so she could buy warmer clothes for
her children that she otherwise couldn't afford.
The cases guardians take on usually last at least
a year and average about 18 months. As a rule,
each case requires six to 10 hours a month.
Guardians try to provide the children they repre-
sent with more than the basic necessities. Children
removed from an abusive situation often arrive at
their new home with nothing but the clothes on
their back. A simple blanket, which the guardians
keep stocked in their office, can help create a sense

they did nothing wrong," Susan Neville, a guardian
ad litem and president of the Guardian Ad Litem
Foundation. ''There's no real comfort level for that
child, nothing they can call theirs. Mom and Dad
screwed up, but they get to stay in the house and
it's the child who has to move."
Mike Bailey of Palm Harbor retired as principal
at San Jose Elementary in Dunedin in 2007. His
friends thought he might be crazy for when he
began considering becoming a guardian ad litem,
given the 32 years he spent dealing with children
in the school system.
His pastor had a different perspective.
"Mike, you know, you've been training your
whole life for this calling," Bailey remembered him
Bailey hasn't regretted the decision.
"My heart really is with the kids," he said. "I just
think every kid deserves a chance. A lot of the
times, we are that chance. We jump through the
hoops to make it happen."
Under the threat of state budget cuts, the
guardians in the sixth circuit lobbied every state
legislator whose district covered one of the chil-
dren they represented and asked them to spare
the program. This year, the budget didn't get cut.
However, given the poor economy, the program's
goal of giving every neglected or abused child a
guardian ad litem to represent them is still a los-
'The number of children going into the system is
still increasing," Neville said.
Still, the program's motto, "Just One" empha-
sizes the impact a guardian can make, even if they
take on just one case. Many take on about three
cases. The program advises against more than five,
though Larkin-Richards' case load far surpasses
"Our guardians tend to go the extra mile, and
then a wee bit more," Neville said. 'The turnover
rate is nonexistent. Our guardians are committed
to the program. And no one does this to get rich."
'W~e do get rich soul-wise," she said.
Orientations for prospective guardians ad litem
are held every Thursday in the program's fourth-
floor offices of the Pinellas County Criminal Justice
Center, 14250 49th St. The application process in-
cludes an extensive interview, a background check
The next 30-hour training class will be held on
Saturday for five weeks starting Oct. 9, from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pasedena Community
Church, 227 70th St. S, St. Petersburg.

Commissioners have tough choices to
make, she said, and "in making them,
we have to think about who it is going to
"Hopefully, the $2 million for next
year is that last time for a while we have
to cut," she said.
Robert Hunsicker, who is running for
Seat 5, was asked whether all law en-
for cement agencies in the county should
"Definitely not," he said.
He said Largo has an "excellent police
department" and the "sheriffs depart-
ment isn't doing that bad, but the quali-
ty of service in terms of response time is
He also said the city has more say
over law enforcement by having a police
"If we give up our police department,
we can't fire the sheriff," he said.
Lardner was asked how he would help
the business community along West
Bay Drive in the redevelopment section.
He suggested reducing the speed limit
and looking at the parking situation.
"I think by slowing down the speed
limit you could get the attention of peo-
ple to focus more," he said.
He also said having more events
downtown could attract more people to
the area, such as an event called Third
Night in Safety Harbor that is held on
the third Friday of every month.
"I've been there," he said. "It's hun-
dreds of people."
Taking advantage of Ulmer Park to
have concerts and other events will
bring people from the beaches and be
beneficial to downtown, he said.
"You have to have something that has
attraction value," he said.
CANDIDATES, from page 1A
protect us day in and day out."
Because the city wasn't willing to put
the step plan on hold, there will be more
arbitration "to try to figure out how we
are going to pay our firefighters now."
He said the city should have accepted
the magistrate's recommendation,
shelved the step plan for a few years and
then re-evaluate it.
Atanasio was asked whether the city
should continue to run the city's golf
He said he has lived in Largo for 34
years, and "for all the time I have lived
in Largo ... the golf course has lost
money each and every year."
"The golf course is a nice venue to
have in the city, but I believe it should
be privately controlled," he said.
Commissioner Woody Brown was
asked how he would encourage citizen
participation in local government.
Brown said he sees 30 to 40 people
every day, and encourages them to get
involved with advisory boards and at-
tend the citizens academy to learn more
about how the city works.
The city has several events, such as
the Halloween Spooktacular, that attract
many Largo residents and get them in-
terested in the city.
"Many of those events don't cost the
city anything," Brown said.
Crozier, who holds Seat 5, was asked
whether the city should cut services or
use reserve funds in anticipation of hav-
ing to reduce its budget by $2 million to
"We have already over the last five
years cut $10 million," she said, "and
some services may have to be cut."

After nearly five years of construction, the new $77 million John's Pass bridge opened for traffic in both directions Sept.
10. The Florida Department of Transportation project, which began in January 2006, features dual 12-foot lanes in each
direction, 8-foot sidewalks on each side, four observation decks and a new bridge tender house. The bridge is 8 feet
higher above the pass and the channel underneath is 40 feet wider.
would have continued to smoke at their desk, she said.
It also was a policy change that resulted in more healthy choices
at fast food restaurants, such as salads and grilled chicken instead
The health department itself has a new policy to stock only
healthy snack and drink alternatives in its break room vending ma-
chines. She said employees can still bring in sugary drinks and
less-healthy snacks, but they are no longer available to purchase
inside the building.
''The products (in the vending machines) must meet nutritional
guidelines," she said. "We changed the policy in the building, but
we did not mandate that our employees not make other choices."
Hall said food programs and vending machine choices in schools
were another area that could use a policy change. She said making
vending machine changes in schools was a bit tricky because sales
of snacks and drinks generate revenue.
She said the recommendation is to remove sugary drinks and re-
place them with Gatorade, juice or water. Fried snacks can be re-
placed with baked ones, and other healthy choices can be added.
Pinellas County's schools are making progress in improving nu-
trition, Hall said. She recommended a website, nutri-cafe.com
where students and parents can go to see food choices available
and calculate calories and nutritional information about the offered
meals. She said parents also could send a message to cafeteria
workers that restricts foods their child can have.
The grant money will provide funding for a team of nutrition and
activity consultants to work with childcare centers, restaurants,
worksites and other agencies to provide effective and sustainable
methods to promote healthy behaviors in nutrition and physical ac-
tivity, according to a press release about the grant.
Each year, seven of 10 Americans die from problems with chronic
diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. More
than 75 percent of the nation's health care spending is on those
same chronic diseases.
The grant money is part of the federal government's plan to pre-
vent and control chronic diseases by taking local action.
"It's all about setting new policies and providing healthy alterna-
tives to people," Hall said.

Man travels to Pinellas to doctor shop
INDIAN SHORES A man from Hyannis, Mass., was arrested Sept.
14 after allegedly traveling to Pinellas County to doctor shop for pain
According to the sheriffs report, a local doctor's office notified the
sheriffs office on Sept. 1 that a patient, Ronald David Kimball, 53, was
possibly doctor shopping. The doctor's office had been notified by an-
other doctor's office in Winter Park that Kimball was seeing multiple
doctors to obtain oxrycontin and oxycodone without their knowledge.
Detectives learned that Kimball was seeing three doctors repeatedly
each month to obtain drugs illegally and that he had committed 16
doctor-shopping crimes since May 2009. In some cases, Kimball would
see two doctors the same day, the report said.
On Sept. 14, detectives were notified by the local doctor's office that
Kimball was at the office attempting to obtain another prescription.
Detectives went to the office and notified patrol deputies to respond for
assistance. As one of the deputies arrived at the doctor's office in Indi-
an Shores, Kimball ran out the back door, the report said.
After a 45-minute search, he was located under a walkway bridge to
a mangrove area that led to the Intracoastal Waterway. He was arrest-
ed without further incident. Deputies located a U.S. Airways boarding
pass in Kimball's possession.
Upon investigation, detectives discovered that Kimball had flown
from Boston to the Tampa Bay area on the morning of Sept. 14. His re-
tumn flight was scheduled that afternoon back to Hyannis.
Kimball subsequently complained of chest pains, the report said,
and he was transported to a local hospital. He was later released and
transported to the Pinellas County Jail where he remains. His bonds
total more than $900,000 on 29 separate charges. His jail report lists a

Shannon's love of teaching and people is lifelong. He was employed
for more than 27 years with Long Island's Belmore-Merrick Central
High School district, first as a Spanish teacher, then transitioning into
the role of guidance counselor for all incoming foreign students.
"I enjoy teaching tremendously," Shannon said. "I wanted to take the
skills I have and apply them to what I'm doing now."
Another skill Shannon is able to apply is writing. In
,"n January of this year county staff asked him to take
I over writing and editing the volunteer newsletter, the
Ids Volunteer Voice. According to strickland, his help is
"He comes up with the story ideas," said strick-
Svo lunteerS land. "It's all him ... It would not be getting done, if l
didn't give it to him, literally."
"Violunteers don't get paid, but if they did their total contributions
would exceed $2 million to the county," Shannon said. "So, it's an ab-
solute win-win partnership for everybody."
Shannon and his wife have been married for 39 years, raised three
children and have one grandson. According to him, moving to Florida
was one the best things they ever did, another is volunteering.
"It keeps me sharp," Shannon said with a big smile. "T~his is abso-
lutely the best year I've had."
Pinellas County volunteers can expect to make a difference in the life of
their community, while exploring interests, sharing knowledge, assisting
others and making fiends. For more information, visit www.pinellas
county, org/ volserve, email volunteers ~pinellasmounty. org or call 464-
IARGO The afternoon sun warms the whitewashed beaded board
walls inside the old Harris schoolhouse at Heritage Village. Pinellas
County volunteer Dan Shannon, 70, briskly arranges a few chairs at
the head of three tables pushed together in the center of the classroom.
The setting is a familiar one for Shannon. For the last
11/2 years he has conducted Pinellas County's volun- |
teer orientations, welcoming each new group with a HI
fresh, buoyant enthusiasm that never seems to wane. h
"It's like doing it for the very, very first time because h
the group that comes to me ... they're coming for their
first time, Shannon said. "I'm their welcome mat, in a at standing
sense, to Pinellas County volunteering."
Shannon's passion for his role is contagious. Watching him welcome
new arriving volunteers is reminiscent of a proud father in the receiving
line at his daughter's wedding.
He started volunteering with Pinellas County back in 2002 after he
and his wife, Evelyn, moved here from East Islip, N.Y. in 2000. His first
assigmnent was at the Florida Botanical Gardens arranging weddings.
He took on his present role as volunteer orientation facilitator in 2009.
According to Human Resources technician and volunteer supervisor
Carol Strickland, Shannon is a highly valued member of the Volunteer
"I know that if I can't attend (orientation), I know it's in good hands
... He is tickled to death to speak to our volunteers. He's a former

to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,

-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.

Hi, Huskies. This is Ollie Freeman, your

Fenstip, the wrestler with the lisp) having a
fling with his speech therapist (a woman,
thank God), so I called a divorce lawyer and

In the "small world" category, try this on

They never expected to bump elbows again.
But when Lance was released from prison

Harry, that's who. Lance said his conviction
was a bum rap, and I believe him. In his days

If you've visited your favorite book store
lately, you've surely seen Hannah Winston's
most recent novel. It's set in a college campus
in the 1980s. It contains a lot of undergradu-
ate hanky-panky, plus a guide on how to use
cocaine as a booster when taking exams. If
some of the book's characters seem familiar
to you, don't be surprised. This may explain
why Hannah was always scribbling notes to
herself during campus beer parties.
Cecily "Slim" Antrim writes that she has

Nick and I adopted Simon from Save Our
Strays after Simon's sister appeared as a pet
of the week in the Clearwater Beacon.
Simon's playfulness and brains coupled with
his cuddliness and motorboat purr helped
him win out over his pretty but quiet and
sleepy sister and his other siblings.
We already had my two cats, but I thought
Nick needed a cat he could call his own. I was
right. Simon is wonderful company for Nick
when I am running around with a crazy
schedule. Nick would joke that my cats are
his stepeats, since I'd adopted them from an-
other rescue service in college before we had
met. While he loves them, there was some-
thing that just didn't feel his about them.
Simon is his. Or, better yet, ours.
I'd forgotten something, though. I'd forgot-
ten that having a kitten is much like having a
toddler. A toddler with claws. A furry toddler
with much less of a grasp on the English lan-
guage. There's the unfathomable amounts of
energy, such as when Simon literally takes
laps around the bedroom, leaping up and
over the bed, shooting under the bed, out the
other side, around the corner of the room
and back again. There's also the teething,
when Simon had to chew on everything -
toys, hands, toes, his own tail. Then there are
the early mornings if Simon wakes up, he

Apollo humors Simon and gently plays with
him. However, as any older sibling will, Apol-
lo grows weary of Simon play attacking him
all the time. It's common to hear a thunder-
ing of paws and then see a tiny, gray tabby
catapult off of Apollo, either leaping all the
way over him or landing on Apollo's back in a
very Tigger-esque manner. It's in times like
these when Apollo perfects his hiss and looks
toward us with desperate eyes that seem to
beg for respite from this tireless fuzzy shad-
ow. Nonetheless, I have the feeling that the
two of them will be great buds when Simon
matures a little more.
Adara, on the other hand, my 6-year-old,
long haired Siamese/ragdoll mix, has no

cat fights that caused us to sequester
Simon in the bedroom with us at night
while the other two cats had the rest of the
apartment to themselves. Poor Simon still
flattens himself to the floor in submission
when Adara approaches. We're still work-
ing out what we can do to help Adara feel
less threatened or territorial, and although
she has gotten better, they still haven't
worked everything out yet.
Despite these few issues, Simon has been
the perfect addition to our little family and
has brought all of us save for Adara closer
together. He knows when one of us is upset
and comes over to cuddle and purr until we
feel better. He is like our first kid together a
living being that is ours together. Simon filled
a space in our hearts that we didn't even
know was waiting for him.
doesn't care if it's 4 in the morning. He's up
and he wants food and attention.
The intense playfulness is perhaps one of
the most enjoyable of Simon's toddler antics.
We love sitting on the couch and watching
Simon amuse himself as he climbs to the top
platform of his cat tree, lies on his side and
pulls himself around and around the pole
with his claws, as though he is winding him-
self up. When he tires of that, he'll change
focus and chase his tail. He'll see it hanging
off the side of the platform and try to out-
smart it by going underneath the platform to
catch it on the other side. That usually does-
n't go too well.
Just like a toddler, Simon will play hard
and then get particularly mischievous and
troublesome right before he crashes and
sleeps for hours. But however frustrated we
get when he has attacked our feet for the mil-
lionth time in a row, he'll then cuddle up next
to us in a purring, kitty contortionist ball of
love. Our hearts melt all over again,
Of course like any new addition to the fam-
ily, there is sibling rivalry and dynamics to
contend with. Apollo, my 6-year-old, fat,
black cat, has accepted his role as big broth-
er with weary patience. It seems like he un-
derstands that Simon is just a kid who wants
to play and hasn't learned all the rules yet.

Largo city commissioners are exploring ways to help get the Largo
Golf Course back on solid ground financially.
In recent months they've unveiled a marketing plan to help increase
revenue at the golf course.
They also plan to get opinions from private enterprise on how to
make it profitable and also may consider leasing it. City commission-
ers expect to transfer $200,000 from their operating fund to the golf
course fund in the next fiscal year.
The weather and the economy are major factors in the poor revenue
stream at the golf course. Certainly, city officials can't control those
They also said that renovations at the golf course in 2007 may have
contributed to the decrease in business. Some players may have gone
to other links and decided not to return.
So, as some commissioners have pointed out, why weren't city offi-
cials more aggressive about marketing the golf course when it was ren-
City commissioners will evaluate in six months whether the new
marketing efforts will make a substantial difference in revenue at the
golf course. If not, they will be wise to consider leasing it to private en-
terprise or even exploring other uses for the property.
With so much money being poured into the operation, more city tax-
payers likely will demand changes at the golf course.
In the meantime, residents can help out by taking a swing at the
golf course -with their clubs.
Kudos to the Florida Department of Transportation and its contrac-
tor, Flatiron Construction Co. of Morrisville, N.C., for finishing work
ahead of schedule and opening the new bridge over John's Pass.
The $77 million project, which began in January 2006, is a welcome
addition to the landscape of our beautiful beaches but more impor-
tantly its completion will likely have a positive economic effect on the
As do all construction projects, the bridge expansion was the source
of much economic stress for local businesses in the area, many of
which did not weather the storm.
The new bridge is a crown jewel to the area and will act as a positive
addition for traffic flow along Gulf Boulevard.
The twin bridges features two, 12-feet lanes in both directions, 8-
foot sidewalks, four observation decks and a new bridge tender house.
For boaters, it will mean a safer trip to and from the Gulf of Mexcico.
The bridge is 8 feet higher above the pass and the channel below is 40
In this period of hard economic times, the new structure will hope-
fully act as a positive force for commerce along the beaches.
Amendment 4 is a hidden tax
This amendment goes by the name of "Hometown Democracy" and
by the name alone who would not vote yes, it sounds like what our na-
tion was founded upon ... but it is far from that. It is an amendment
that goes against what our founding fathers put into play. Our found-
ing fathers created a system of democracy, where voters do not make
the decisions directly, but elect representatives at all levels of govem-
ment, to represent the "collective interests" of their community, from
the smallest of babies to senior elders. On a local level we have been
charged with providing leadership and guidance necessary for efficient
provision of municipal services and effective operation of the city gov-
emnment. Our position also has a quasi judicial component where we
have taken an oath to take the emotion out of our decision to review
the law as it applies and make a decision based on those laws, both
fairly and consistently, the fundamental principle of "home rule."
If Amendment 4 is passed it will require a voter referendum wheney-
er any city or county wants to amend its comprehensive plan. Most
people do not even know what a comprehensive plan is and/or says,
and this absurd law would require that a general election be held, and
that they the citizens vote on changes to it.
By placing it on the ballot this law will impose the significant costs
to be ultimately paid by us the tax payers. If it generates legal battles,
like in the City of St. Petersburg Beach, these costs will be paid by us
the taxpayers. If Amendment 4 passes, even grammatical changes
would ultimately cost the tax payer tens of thousands or as much as
hundreds of thousands of dollars to make the changes, and it would
fall on us the taxpayers. Of course this would be compounded if forced
to go countywide in a Charter County. I ask, is Pinellas a Charter
County?! Having attended the Charter Review hearings recently I would
sa yoestisant your city planning done by special interest groups at
election time? Do you want your money spent on trying to educate
people on the current law and the outcome of a law change? Do you
want your tax dollars wasted in the courts fighting legal battles created
by people with special interests? I as a tax payer do not.
If not ...
Say no to higher taxes, no to wasting the tax dollars we have already
paid and no to this nonsensical Amendment 4.
You know I do not use the bully pulpit of the council or the media
but you need to know what kind of costs the passing of this Amend-
ment 4 will ultimately cost you.
Comedy of errors
When the city went to automated parking instead of parking atten-
dants two years ago on Pier 60, a lot full sign is put out, but you can
s et Qtte ate fo awel sli dime sac ao s teyd ae sil using
this same silly way of parking. I know that when standard parking was
there and they used lot full signs, people complained because at times
they saw empty spaces despite the lot full sign and the city wanted to
avoid these complaints by allowing people to still enter the lot despite it
being full. I work in the marina and have seen numerous near miss
rear-end collisions because people don't know if they can enter the lot
or not with the lot open, but the lot full sign out. I also have seen many
car back-ups because someone is hesitating and confused if they
should go in the lot or not. In my opinion, either don't use the lot full
sign and stop the confusion, or use it and block the entrance. It some-
times looks like a comedy of errors out there.

Mami is horrified. Why would her brother

In his famously confessional,

CLEARWATER Legend has it that David Cros-
by, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash first harmo-
nized in 1969 in Joni Mitchell's living room.
Or maybe it was Mama Cass Elliot's dining
room. It all depends upon which member is re-
counting the story.
Either way, Crosby, Stills and Nash will per-
form Wednesday, Sept. 29, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eck-
erd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.
Reserved ticket prices range from $62.50 to

While the three men may find it difficult to
agree on certain aspects of their history, their
professional ties are as unbreakable as their long-
Four decades have passed since the trio of leg-
endary singer-songwriters first came together. It
also has been 40 years since Crosby, Stills and
Nash along with Neil Young walked out before
half a million concert-goers gathered outdoors at
Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near White
Lake, N.Y., performing one of their first concerts
at one of the era's watershed events. Playing long
after midnight on the last day of Woodstock, the
band served up two sets comprised of songs that
remain as influential and engaging today as they
The members of CSN are no strangers to the
road, having toured on a recurrent basis ever
since their very first gig together. The group's
2010 tour follows up a 12-month period marked
by high profile performances and projects.
In October 2009, CSN played at the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary concerts at
Madison Square Garden. CSN was inducted into
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, and each
member also has the distinction of being inducted
a second time as part of another legendary group:
David Crosby for The Byrds; Stephen Stills with
Buffalo Springfield; and Graham Nash for The
Because each member came to the band after
being associated with other successful bands,
CSN is considered by many to be the original "su-
With their eponymous 1969 debut LP, CSN
lived up to expectations by producing a 10-song
tour de force that reached No. 6 on Billboards pop
albums chart and earned the band a Grammy for
Best New Artist. The album featured timeless
tracks such as "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," Mar-
rakesh Express," "Guinnevere" and "Wooden
In the group's four-man configuration with
Young, they followed up with 1970's "Detja Vu,"
which included unforgettable songs such as
"'Teach Your Children," "Our House" and "Help-
less." In 1977, the album "CSN" produced the
singles "Just a Song Before I Go" and "Fair Game"
while 1982's "Daylight Again" featured "Whasted
on the Way" and "Southern Cross."
Crosby, Stills and Nash were inducted into the
Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2009. The year also
marked the release of Rhino Records' "CSN
Demos" which features a dozen previously unre-
leased tracks recorded between 1968 and 1971.
The album showcases destined-to-be-classic
songs later heard on CSN's group and solo titles.
Other rarities include seminal takes on "Almost
Cut My Hair," "Chicago," "Love the One You're
With," "Sleep Song" and "Long Time Gone.
Earlier this year, CSN musically saluted Young
- their longtime partner in Crosby, Stills, Nash
and Young at the National Academy of Record-
ing Arts and Science's Person of the Year gala.
The event, which honored Young, kicked off 2010

Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall welcomes Crosby, Stills and Nash Sept. 29. Because each member came to the band
after being associated with other successful bands, CSN is considered by many to be the original "supergroup."
