CLEARWATER Some Pinellas County services will
cost more when the new budget year begins Oct. 1.
County commissioners approved a resolution on
Sept. 21 setting user fees for services provided by vari-
ous governmental departments, Utilities and the St. Pe-
tersburg-Clearivater Airport fund.
"As part of the development of the fiscal year 2011
proposed budget, departments were asked to review
their fees for opportunities to enhance recovery from
specific benefiting parties and relieve pressure on prop-
erty taxes," said documents provided to the commis-
stoners. "Departments were challenged to recover both

LARGO Most city commissioners said Sept. 22 they
support subsidizing the Cultural Center with funds
from the city's budget, arguing that it is a valuable
amenity for the conununity.
The issue came up during a discussion of the $143.6
million budget for the next fiscal year. The tax rate is
4.31 mills, which is the same as the current fiscal
year's rate and will result in a reduction in property tax
revenues of $1.7 million.
Commissioners adopted the millage rate 6-1, with
Commissioner Mary Black dissenting, and approved


the budget 5-2. Black and Commissioner Curtis
Hohnes dissented.
Hohnes asked that commissioners receive a report of
any transfer of tax dollars to the golf course or the cul-
tural center.
"I think the public is entitled to know that when we
are taking somebody's property tax and we are subsi-
dizing a golf game or we are subsidizing a ticket going
in for entertainment ..." he said.
Among the reasons he gave for voting against the
budget is "far as I'm concerned, the golf course and the
cultural center are on probation. Because if those two
venues do not show substantial improvement in their


financial health by next year, I will go to great lengths
to make sure there are no further subsidies to either
one of them," he said. "T~hose are both venues that I
have complained about for years."
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said when the cultural
center was built about 15 years ago "it was built for the
conununity."
She said the city received $600,000 from a lady in
Belleatr and $1 million at two different times from the
state.

Millie Diaz retired in 1998.
So what's she doing in that
white lab coat at the Tampa
Bay Oncology Center in Largo?
At 77, Diaz is too busy to be
retired.
"In 1980," said Diaz, "when I
was working for Suncoast Hos-
pital, they wanted to start a
support group for cancer pa-
tients. They knew I was inter-
ested, so they put me in
charge of the service. I contin-
ued in that job until 1998,
when I retired at 65."
During those 18 years, Diaz
developed a total of five groups
meeting weekly, among them

cancer patients, caregivers and
bereavement groups. In 1997,
in recognition of her services,
she was named Citizen of the
Year by the Largo Chamber of
Commerce.
Diaz started her career as a
nurse's aide at Suncoast Hos-
pital while studying nursing at
St. Pete College. After graduat-
ing with her RN degree, she


continued at Suncoast in their
intensive care unit until be-
coming product line manager
for the hospital's oncology pro-
gram. In 1986, she entered
and successfully completed
the first specialized oncology
nursing class given in the
country.

plained, "I continued working

Commission OKs

budget, tax rate
Pinellas County commissioners gave
final approval on Sept. 21 to the $1.6 bil-
lion fiscal year 2011 budget.
The commissioners also gave final ap-
proval to a countywide millage rate of
4.81, which is the same as the current
year. By keeping the same millage rate
as 2010, county revenue from property
taxes will decrease by more than 10 per-
cent. To generate the same amount as
the current year, the commissioners
would need to set the 2011 millage at
5.41.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Finding the Right Doctor To Care For Your Smile
That may sound like an obvious title for an article all about myself. But I seriously
think it is an important question. I know some folks who choose their medical care
by looking for the most appealing ad in the yellow pages. I suggest a little more
research, especially when you are looking for a health-centered or cosmetic dentist.
Here is a quick checklist you could look through when selecting your dentist.
*Be direct. Ask the doctor to discuss experience, training and credentials with you.
Don't be intimidated. This is really important because cosmetic dentistry is not a
board-certified specialty. This means that any dentist can call him or herself a
cosmetic dentist with no more than basic dental school education. There is
something to say for years of experience and training.
*Be certain that the before and after photos belong to
real patients of that particular doctor.
*The best dentistry comes from focused attention on an
individual patient. A busy, bustling practice means that
the dentist is required to check on many patients
throughout the day. Your family deserves a doctor who
can spend time with you without interruption or rushing.
*Look for a practice that utilizes up to date modern
equipment. Used with skill, technology allows dentists to
be more accurate, more conservative in care, and keeps
your procedure as comfortable as possible.
*Finally, good communication skills are critical for the treatment to be a success.
The doctor must listen and understand the goals and desires of the patient so the
outcome is predictable and meets the patient' s expectations.
With just a little homework up front, you'll be sure to find a dentist who combines
training, skill, artistry and style for great results and beautiful health.
Here's the bit about myself.
I really do care about my patients. They are my ultimate priority, and I am
passionate about learning everything there is to know so I can give them the best that
dentistry has to offer. This keeps myself and my staff informed on the very latest
advances and techniques. I always listen to your needs and answer all your questions.
I grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland Dental
School in 1981. My wife Kathy, an RN at Morton Plant, and I moved to Florida
shortly afterwards. We have four children. Our oldest son is a pilot in the US Navy,
next is a construction manager in New York City, the third is studying Architecture.
All are University of Florida Gators. Our daughter is a high school student.
I have done extensive training in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry at the
world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. In addition to this
training, I have studied with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and
orthodontics at the United States Dental Institute.
I love what I do, and I love my patients.

As a result of the evaluation conducted in February, Largo Fire
Rescue was rated 2, for the first time in the department's history.
The rating goes into effect Oct. 1.
"What they (insurance companies) tell me is that the rates will
go down," Wallace said.
He said that the savings will affect every individual who has a

"I think it's important for the residents to know that if they con-
tact their insurance companies Oct. 1 and ask for their insurance
rates to be re-rated ... they will see some reductions in their insur-
ance premiums."
He said commercial properties will see more of a decrease than
resi ni 1es 1il fir better. In these economic times, that's ac-
tually a good thing," Wallace said.
He said the City Commission's commitment to public safety
brought the improvement in the classification. Of the 48,000 de-
partments in the country, only 585 have achieved a classification
of 2.
Commissioner Curtis Holmes, who is in the insurance business,
said residents should call their agent Oct. 1.
"Call your agent. You'll get your credit immediately. Don't wait.
If you wait until renewal, you may wait a year. The insurance
company is going to sit there and say 'thanks for not calling,' "
Holmes said.
The ISO's evaluation included a review of available water sup-
ply, communications systems and fire department staffing, train-
ing, equipment and geographic distribution of fire companies.
Holmes asked how the department would be classified as a 1.
Wallace said obtaining such a rating would not be cost-effective
because of the investment it would take, such as building two new
fire stations and adding a significant amount of people.
Fewer than 100 fire departments in the nation have a classifica-
tion of 1, he said.


City finishes 4th Street project
LARGO The city has completed the 4th street SW Roadway
Reconstruction Project. This $899,741 project is one of the several

A major component of this project is the sidewalk and drainage im-
provements, as well as brick reconstruction on 4th street SW from
Cleveland Avenue to 8th Avenue SW in downtown Largo.
City staff re-evaluated the initial design developed for the project in
order to provide the community with an urban corridor within the
City's traditional downtown core, and to address the Commission's
"live, work, shop and play" vision for the West Bay Drive Community
Redf eveopmentmisredt a redesign based on a holistic concept that
makes room for all forms of transit: automobile, pedestrian, and bicy-
cle. The sidewalk was redesigned to be 8-feet wide, serving as an
Urban Trail providing a safe bicycle and pedestrian connection from
downtown to Largo Middle School, Central Park, the Cultural Center,
Largo Public Library and the Pinellas Trail.

"It was built with the intent that we are giving the arts to the com-
munity at a very, very reasonable rate. We realize that people can go
to Ruth Eckerd Hall and go over to Tampa Bay (Performing Arts
Center) and maybe see bigger and better performances, but when
that facility was built, it was built with the intent solely of providing
the cultural arts to the community, and not only Largo, but the sur-
rounding community for those who could not afford the bigger ven-
ues."
She said it was never intended to be an enterprise fund, which is
self-supporting and designed to account for activities supported by
users fees. Examples of enterprise funds are solid waste and sewer
funds.
"'The fact that it (the cultural center) pulls in here's the piece of
the pie 70 percent of the pie, I think that is very good," she said.
Commissioner Robert Murray also disagreed with Holmes, saying
the cultural Center is a valuable amenity for the community.
"When businesses look to move into the community, they look at
the amenities that community provides. When residents look to buy
a home in the area, they look at the amenities," he said.
"I think it's important that we continue to support it," he said.
People who go to shows at the cultural Center will buy dinner in
town and put money into the local economy, he said.
Black said she didn't have a problem with the city helping the
community theater, the Eight O'Clock Theatre, but shows "that are

Texas firm chosen to plan
citV'S eCOROmic future
CLEARWATER On June 1, the City Council gave Geri Campos
Lopez,e the tois directors of economic dev lop et hr roseng dt

mapping Cleanvater's economic future. Thirty-one firms responded.
Their proposals were reviewed by a five-member evaluation commit-
tee consisting of Lopez; Michael Delki, the city's planning and develop-
ment director; Assistant City Manager Rod Invin; Kathleen Peters, vice
president for public affairs at the Cleanvater Regional Chamber of
Commerce; and Chris steinocher, chief operating officer and senior
vice president of marketing and business development at the Tampa
Bay Partnership.
'Wer had a lot of information to go through," Lopez said.
The proposals were ranked according to each firm's experience and
qualifications, the project approach, the quality of the firm's previous
performance, and the proposed costs, and the list was narrowed down
to five finalists that were invited to give oral presentations on Aug. 17
or 24. They were: Analytica of Newberry, Fla.; Bay Area Economics of
Emeryville, Calif.; Fairfield Index, Inc., of Tampa; SRI Intemnational of
Arlington, Va.; and TIP strategies of Austin, Texas.
TIP strategies was the front-runner presented for the City Council's
perusal at the council's Sept. 20 work session. The council is expected
to award TIP a $75,000 contract plus an additional allowance of up to
$5,000 for expenses at its Sept. 22 meeting.
A staff memo listed the reasons TIP was chosen. They included "a
solid understanding of the challenges we face in measuring and ex-
panding our economic base," innovative incentives that have been suc-
cessful with previous clients and should work with Cleanvater, a
"strong focus on the development of realistic and practical bench-
marks" to measure the success of the proposed plan, and TIP's
"widespread experience in both gathering input from stakeholders ...
and building public support for economic development plans."
The biggest challenges facing Cleanvater, according to TIP, are a
loss of population and a loss of jobs in key industries, the same prob-
lems that plague many cities in TIP's home state of Texas.
'We're~ very excited to bring this fonvard ..." Lopez said. "Whe felt good
that they really understood our position" and could apply the lessons
learned in Texas to Cleanvater.
The purpose of the project, according to the staff memo, is to "pro-
vide a framework for increasing the city's tax base with the ultimate
goal of sustaining and expanding the economic base in order to pro-


vide for a high quality of life for all residents."
The reaction of the council members was unanimously positive.
"I think this is just as important (as a tourism contract the council
adopted earlier), if not more so," Councilman George Cretekos said.

plan covers the entire city, not just the Cleanvater Beach tourist dis-
trict. "T~here are 26 square miles in the city and we've been concentrat-
ing on the one square mile on Cleanvater Beach."


Council OKs 2011 miller budget
SEMINOLE The city's proposed millage rate and fiscal 2011 budget
moved closer to reality Sept. 15 when the City Council approved both
measures on first reading at City Hall.
The second and final public hearing on both topics will be held
Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. If approved, as expected, both will go into
effect Oct. 1.
For the third consecutive year, the city is proposing the same mil-
lage rate of 2.4793, which is 10.8 percent below the proposed rolled
back rate of 2.7794.
The rate ranks 10th lowest among Pinellas County's 24 municipali-
ties and tops among communities on the mainland.
The millage rate will produce $2.53 million in revenue to be used for
the general operation of the city.
The proposed millage rate for the Seminole Fire District is 1.9581,
which, if passed, will mark the third consecutive year at that level. It
ranks third-lowest in Pinellas County among 12 municipal fire dis-
tricts.
The proposed 2011 budget is $15.2 million, which is an 8.1 percent
($1.34 million) decease from the current budget.
The biggest cuts will come in the city's administration department,
$475,077; and Seminole Fire Rescue, $432,040.
Within administration, the recreation department will take the
biggest hit with a budget cut of $404,696.
The public works budget dropped $176,830 and the community de-
velopment budget was cut $167,865.
The city's primary revenue sources are intergovemmental income
from Pinellas County for fire service outside the city limits, 41 percent;
franchise fees and utility taxes, 21 percent; ad valorem taxes, 16 per-
cent; other intergovemmental revenue, 13 percent; and user fees, 3
percent.


Law enforcement and Seminole Fire Rescue make up the biggest
chunk of the budget with a combined total of $9.8 million, or 65 per-
cent of the $15.2 million total.

Bluffs commission split
on fire pension settlement
BELLEAIR BLUFFS Just how generous the city should be with its
former firefighters in paying out pension plan obligations was debated
at Monday night's City Commission meeting.
Former Bluffs firefighters are owed a total of $1.5 million, according
to city actuary Fred Williams. There is currently about $1.3 million in
the pension trust fund, leaving a $232,000 shortfall that the city must
make up.
Assistant city Attorney John Hubbard had argued at last week's
workshop meeting that the city has an obligation to taxpayers to close
out the pension plan in the least expensive way possible.
'You have a fiduciary responsibility to your citizens to complete this
with as little cost to them as possible," Hubbard said in a follow-up let-
ter.
That would involve paying eight firefighters without vested interests
the money they have put into the plan. Hubbard recommended talks be
held with four vested firefighters to see if they are willing to take lump
sum payments, rather than lifetime annuities,
The annuities involve extra expense as the plan would have to be
kept open and administered by the city.
An alternate plan favored by Mayor Chris Arbutine would include of-
fering a "service distribution" payment of $1,000 per year of service to
each of the firefighters as an incentive to get all to agree to accept lump
sum payments. Hubbard had recommended the city not offer the serv-
ice payments, which are an added cost.
City Attomney Thomas Trask pointed out at Monday's meeting that
the nonvested firefighters must agree to accept the money before the
city can give it to them. They could request the money be left in the
fund, although Trask said that would make no sense as it would not
pay dividends or eamn interest.
The commission narrowly favored having the pension board present
Arbutine's plan, including the service distribution payment, to the fire-
fighters with the requirement that all accept lump sum payments.
Commissioners Joseph Barkley and Suzy sofer voted in favor, along
with Arbutine. Commissioners Jack Nazario and Taylour Shimkus
wanted to take the attorney's advice and offer the firefighters the least
expensive option.


brought in must pay for themselves."
She also said she doesn't support the city subsidizing the golf
course, which, in part, is why she can't vote to approve the budget.
Commissioner Woody Brown said he agreed with Murray. He said
that if Eight O'Clock Theatre were the only shows allowed, "it would
cost the city a lot more money" to run the cultural center,
'Tro me, if we decide as a community we're going to have a cultural
center, we have to be OK with spending some money on it each
year," Brown said. "Nationwide, 70 percent is much above what
most cultural centers are doing as far as cost recovery is concerned."
He said he has no problem supplementing the cultural center
with funds but he has a problem supplementing the golf course long
term.
"I have no problem subsidizing the cultural Center," Commission-
er Gigi Artnzen said. "It's a quality of life issue. It's something in the
city we are proud of and the residents are proud of. We get rave re-
views constantly about what we offer there for all age groups from
the very young to the very old."
Mayor Pat Gerard said cultural centers do not pay their own way.
"I think ours does an incredible job, not that I'm willing to support
it to any extent that it goes," she said.
"I think we can always look at what we are spending there and
what's bringing money in and what's not. I think that's perfectly rea-
sonable. But we can never expect it to be generating income for us
over and above what it costs," she said. "'They just don't do that."
She shared some commissioners' concerns about the golf course
and said she would like to start talking about the possibility of man-


agement companies running its operations or other options when
they discuss golf course in several months.
"We're just not going to keep pouring money down that hole," she
said.
Black said she has spent a lot of time looking over the budget. She
asked that the proposed millage rate be reduced to 4.15, and she
said she has recommendations of where to make up the difference,
$561,637, in the budget. She failed to get a second on the motion.
According to the proposed city budget, $335,000 is earmarked for
the cultural Center in the next fiscal year. City officials expect to al-
locate $200,000 for the golf course.
Geoff Moakley, a Largo resident, was the only person to address
the commission on the budget. Among the cuts he recommended
was reducing the hours of the McGough Nature Park, saying "that it
is mostly for preschoolers during the week when it's open when
most of the older children are in school." He also said staffing should
be reduced from two to one people.
Over the past several months, commissioners have discussed a
city proposal to close the nature center at the park but decided to
keep it open. Several residents have told commissioners that the na-
ture center should remain open because of the value of its education
programs.
City officials have frozen wages and reduced more than 13 em-
ployee positions to help balance the budget for the next fiscal year,
which begins Oct. 1. City officials say the budget has been signifi-
cantly affected by mandates in the past four years, reducing proper-
ty tax revenue. The recession also has caused revenue reductions.


BUDGET, from page 1A


*The Pinellas County Health Department will charge $125 in-
stead of $100 for annual operating permits for pools and spas to
generate an additional $2,600 a year. A new $25 late fee for public
swimming pool permits will bring in an estimated $10,000. The
biggest amount of new revenue, $36,930, would come from an in-
crease in fees for vasectomies and tubal ligations to cover costs of
contracted services.
*New fees in Real Estate Management are expected to bring in
$2,000. These fees include access and use permits on county prop-
erty of $100 for trail access; $132 for landscape, commercial; $100
for monitoring wells; and $65 for walk-through coordination per de-
partment.
*The Planning Department expects to generate an additional
$1,750 by charging a new $350 fee for petitioners requesting a hear-
ing continuance. Planning also will change its variances fees from
$385 to $375 for residential and $500 commercial. The fee for public
hearing advertising fees for land use changes is going from actual
cost to $250 for small scale and $750 large scale. Planning also is
increasing the fee to review/revised developer agreements from
$1,290 to $1,500. The net revenue impact from those three fee


changes is expected to be minimal.
other fee changes with estimated "minimal impact to the budget,"
include:
*Increased fees for marina trailer storage from $45 per unit a
month to $40 to $50 a month to "provide flexibility in response to
the local market."
*Commercial photography fees at county parks and other venues
will change from $300 for three hours and $150 for each additional
hour to $300 per half day and $500 for all day.
*A new $25 fee to be charged to airlines for each use of the pas-
senger loading bridges.
*Public works expects minimal revenue impact from several fee
increases, such as subdivision plat review fees, which will increase
from $1,500 plus $12 per lot to $1,950 plus $16 per lot. Monument
inspection fees will go up from $90 to $120; subdivision inspection
fees will increase from $280 initial and $140 for re-inspection to
$365 initial and $185 re-inspection; and a 30 percent increase in
fees for special event permits and right-of-way utilization permits.

tion fees will generate $357,000 for the Building &r Development Re-
view Services Fund, based on a proposed 10 percent increase for cost
recovery. Cost recovery is estimated at 83 percent.
Other estimated revenue increases from new fees or fee changes,
include:
*A $20 new fee for animals surrendered to the Pinellas County
Animal Shelter. Charges may be waived when appropriate, accord-
ing to staff notes, "as the fee is not intended to dissuade people from
surrendering an animal." The fee is expected to generate $30,000 in
new money.
Animal Services also will implement a change to its $30 fee for
pickup and delivery of animals. Currently, the fee is charged if the
person owns the animal. Starting Oct. 1, the fee will be charged for
any animal, including raccoons and opossums, etc. The fee is ex-
pected to bring in another $30,000.
*Increase from $255 to $325 for bingo licenses, which will bring
in an estimated additional $11,200 in revenue for Justice and Con-
surner Services.


ness projects," she went on to say. "One regular fund-raiser is a
fashion show which has been held annually for 22 years. It's held in
the Largo Hospice Community Room and all the models are cancer
survivors. Fashions are from Nicole's Boutique on West Bay."
A major project toward which Diaz's fund-raising efforts are di-
rected is the annual Christmas party given for children with cancer.
"It's open to all patients of the pediatric oncology clinic at All Chil-
dren's Hospital in st. Pete," she said. "W~e get about 130 children
every year, plus their parents and siblings, who are also invited."
The hospital issues the invitations and collects the replies, which
they pass on to Diaz and her committee. "Every guest receives a
gift," Diaz said, "but the patients can request something they espe-


cially want, and we try to get it for them."
The party is held at the Vinoy Hotel, which contributes the use of
a hall and staff free of charge. "But funds are needed," Diaz said, "for
refreshments, gifts and entertainment." Pediatric cancer patients
come from all over the state to All Children's and they are all invited.
We have games and a disk jockey and last year the Rays' mascot at-
tended. "
One committee member, John Blonairg, holds his own birthday
every year and tells his guests don't bring gifts, bring presents for
the children or contributions toward the party."
Tampa Bay Oncology Center is located at 1835 Indian Rocks
Road.

and jokes, as well as discussing cancer-related topics.
Asked to describe Diaz, Dr. John West, head of Tampa Bay Oncol-

ideal combination of skill, experience and compassion."
In addition to her work at Tampa Bay Oncology, Diaz has been in-
volved for many years with the American Cancer Society.

Shooting by Largo officers under investigation
Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide Unit detectives
and the Pasco-Pinellas State Attomney's Office are investigating an offi-
cer-related shooting involving three on-duty Largo Police officers.
According to detectives, Largo police officers went to 1636 Chateau
Drive N. in unincorporated Pinellas County about 9 p.m. Sept. 25 to
follow up an investigation of a robbery that happened moments before
at a Walgreens Pharmacy Store in the city of Largo.
The robbery was foiled by a store employee and the suspect fled on
foot.
While investigating the robbery, Largo police learned the suspect
called 911 from his residence, saying he was at home and to come and
get him, the sheriffs report said.
The officers responded to the suspect's residence and called the
Pinellas County Sherifts Office for assistance since the residence is in
unincorporated Clearwater. When the officers arrived on scene, they
called the suspect and instructed him to come outside with his hands
empty and in sight.
The suspect threatened officers over the phone, saying he was com-
ing out armed and loaded, the report said. He then came out of the
residence into the driveway. The officers gave him verbal commands,
which he ignored.
He then pointed at the officers with a black metal object in his
hand, which later turned out to be a wallet with a chain wrapped
around it. Based on the information they had about the robbery and
his statements that he was armed and loaded, all three officers opened
fire, the report said.
Robert Hayes Roll, 56, died at the scene. No one else was injured.
Since the shooting occurred in the unincorporated area of Pinellas
County, Pinellas County sheriffs detectives will be conducting the in-
vestigation into the shooting death of the suspect along with the State
Attorney's Office.


Police beat
The officers involved are Amanda Gay, Jorge Alameda and Adam
Compton.
The investigation continues.

Deputy shoots run-away dog
CLEARWATER A Pinellas County sheriffs deputy shot and killed
a black chow mix dog about 7:30 a.m. Sept. 26.
"Fearing for everyone's safety, Deputy William White shot the dog
with his department-issued sidearm killing it," according to the sher-
iffs report.
The incident started when patrol deputies were dispatched to the
intersection of U.S. 19 and 297th Avenue North in Clearwater. When
they arrived, they found the dog near the east side of U.S. 19, just
south of 297th Avenue North with a woman, who was attempting to
stop the dog from running out onto U.S. 19.
The woman, Marilyn Boada-Penney, is a Pinellas County Sheriffs
Office Communications Center complaint writer. She was off duty
and on her way home, when she saw the dog. She stopped and tried
to contain the dog until the deputies could arrive.
As the deputies got out of their cars and approached, the dog sud-
denly bit Boada-Penney on her right hand wrist area as she tried to
move the dog toward the deputies, the report said.
The dog then ran out into traffic on U.S. 19 in both north and
south bound lanes. The deputies used their emergency vehicles to
stop and slow traffic at certain points to prevent the dog from being
hit, the report said.
After about 10 minutes, the dog finally stopped to rest in a grassy
area of a plaza on the northwest corner.
The deputies parked and continued to watch the dog from a safe
distance until a Pinellas County Animal Control officer could arrive.
When the Animal Control officer tried to approach, the dog took off
running south on U.S. 19 and into the Doral Village Mobile Home


Park where it ran into a creek with a very steep embankment.
The Animal Control officer asked for the deputies' assistance as he
attempted to capture the dog. It growled and barked, and started to-
ward the officer who almost slipped into the creek with the dog. Then
Deputy White shot it.
The dog's remains were taken into custody by the Animal Control
officer, and their office will test the animal for rabies. The victim,
Boada-Penney, drove herself to a local hospital for treatment of two
dog bites.
The investigation continues.

Detectives seek help finding robbery suspect
SEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide de-
tectives are requesting the public's help to identify a man suspected of
robbing the BB&T Bank, 7995 113th St. N. in Seminole.
The robbery occurred Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 4 p.m.
According to detectives, the suspect entered the bank, approached
a teller, implied he had a gun and demanded money. The teller com-
plied and the suspect fled the bank on foot.
He is described as a white male with his hair in a ponytail, approxi-
mately 6 foot tall and weighing 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing
a dark colored polo style shirt with a design on the upper left breast
area, dark pants, white shoes, something green either a hat or waist
pack protruding from his back waist area and sunglasses.
Bank security cameras captured surveillance photos of the suspect
as he entered and fled the bank. Detectives are releasing the photos
to the public in hopes that the suspect can be quickly identified.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Detec-
tive Jeff Capra at 582-6200, or to remain anonymous, and be eligible
for a reward, contact Crime Stoppers of Pinellas at 1-800-873-TIPS
(8477).
The investigation continues.

Leader, September 30, 2010


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL

LARGO The Pinellas County School Board unanimously voted
on Sept. 14 to approve the proposed 2010/2011 $1.4 billion budget
and 8.34 millage rate.
The property tax millage rate is 0.07 percent lower than last year's
rate of 8.34, and it is 9.7 percent lower than the rolled back rate of
9.24. A mill is one dollar of tax per every $1,000 of taxable value,
and the rolled back rate is the millage rate necessary to generate the
same amount of money that was raised the prior fiscal year but
using the new property values after adjusting for new construction.
Because of lower property taxes and the poor economy, there is less
revenue again this year than last year.
Administrative staff had to cut $16.6 million from this year's
budget, which comes after several years in a row of similar, severe
cuts. Kevin Smith, assistant superintendent of budget and resource
allocation, presented a report to the school board and the public ex-


plaining the millage rate, budget and budget cuts.
The following cuts were made to meet the required budget cut:
$2.6 million cut by staff reduction; $2.3 million saved from health
insurance savings; $900,000 from transportation route reductions;
$1.2 million by eliminating the school improvement allocation; $2.5
million from department discretionary budget reduction; $500,000
by decreasing additional duty days and overtime; $500,000 from de-
creasing the literary success program; $1 million from decreasing
the extended learning program; $2 million from contracted services
reductions; $100,000 from reducing travel reimbursements;
$800,000 by reducing math and science coaches; $200,000 by re-
ducing blackberry use; $1.2 million in reducing the use of substitute
teachers; and $600,000 through the early retirement incentive pro-
gram.
Smith reminded the public and the board that it is always a par-
ticular challenge to cut the school district's budget because 85 per-
cent of the operating budget is just in salaries and benefits. The


district also faces a major loss next year when the ARRA Stabiliza-
tion Revenue from the federal stimulus plan runs out. This year the
district received $36 million in these funds toward the general oper-
ating budget. Smith and board members also said that the state leg-
islature is continuing to decrease resources to Pinellas and the other
school districts throughout the state. This year there was a decrease
in base student allocation funds, and a decrease in the required
local effort, leaving the district less money to work with and less
money per student.
Smith said that 48 percent of the budget revenue comes from
local sources and 37 percent comes from the state.
"'That's been inversely related over the last number of years and it
continues to go in that direction," Smith said.
The School Board unanimously voted to approve both the millage
rate and the budget. School Board Member Robin Wikle said she ap-
preciated that the strategic plan aligns with the budget. These were
the final votes on these matters.


By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL
LARGO The Pinellas Coun-
ty School Board was given an
update on Sept. 14 regarding
the latest class size require-
ments and how this will affect
schools in the coming weeks.
Classrooms, including students
and teachers, will likely have to
be shifted around.


In 2002, voters approved a
Florida constitutional amend-
ment to limit the number of
students in core classes in
public schools. From 2003 to
2006, the student-to-teacher
ratio was determined by a dis-
trict average, according to the
presentation. From 2006 to
2010, the ratio was by school-
wide average. Starting in the


current school year, this was to
change to a class-by-class aver-
age.
"Pinellas County schools
must meet these caps at the in-
dividual class level or risk hav-
ing fines for every student
enrolled over the caps that are
set by the amendment," said
board Chairwoman, Janet
Clark. "A statewide referendum


at the general election on Nov.
2, 2010, to determine whether
the class-size limits will be on
individual class size level or if
they can be met using the
school-wide average."
At the time of the school
board meeting, the latest re-
quirements were that schools
would average the following
numbers of students per teach-


er in core classes: 18 students
in prekindergarten through
grade 3; 22 students in grades
4 through 8; and 25 students
in grades 9 through 12. Core
classes are what would be
counted. These include math,
science, language arts and
writing, social studies, and
world languages.
Additionally, the constitution-

proposed that instead of the pledged amount of
$30 million, the commissioners allocate 3.6 per-

Assistant County Administrator Elithia Stan-

that left $4 million still available.

CLEARWATER -Pinellas County commissioners
gave final approval on Sept. 21 to the $1.6 billion
fiscal year 2011 budget.
The total includes $1.2 billion for operating ex-
penses and $400 million in capital spending. The
FY 2011 budget is $61 million less than the cur-
rent year and includes an operating budget de-
crease of $140 million.
The commissioners also gave final approval to a
countywide millage rate of 4.81, which is the same
as the current year. By keeping the same millage
rate as 2010, county revenue from property taxes
will decrease by more than 10 percent. To gener-
ate the same amount as the current year, the
commissioners would need to set the 2011 millage
at 5.41.
The county's 2011 budget includes $513.6 mil-
lion for the general fund. Another $129.3 million is
set aside for capital improvement projects. The
rest of the $1.2 billion is split between depart-
ments under the control of the board of county

By SUZETTE PORTER

School children throughout Pinellas will be partic-
ipating in the 13th annual International Walk to
School on Wednesday, Oct. 6.
This is the 11th year that local crossing guards,
community policing officers, parents and teachers
have accompanied students walking and biking to
school during the annual event.
The purpose is to promote pedestrian safety,
health, fitness and community involvement, accord-
ing to Cecilia Barreda, public information specialist
with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
Barreda said Walk to School Day is a good oppor-
tunity to remind students of pedestrian safety and
practice how it's done.
"Wer want them to leamn to take precautions to get
to school safely every day," Barreda said.
Some of the pedestrian safety lessons students
will practice include always crossing a street at a
marked crossing path or intersection. Waiting until a
vehicle comes to a stop and making eye contact with
the driver to make sure you are seen. Walk facing
traffic. Use established safe routes.
"Whhen they get close to school and their crossing


guard, abide by their commands," Barreda said.
She said crossing guards located at school cross-
ing locations within the sheriffs jurisdiction and mu-
nicipalities that contract sheriffs services develop a
relationship with the children they meet every day.
'"They're there to help," she said.
students that ride bicycles to school also should
follow the pedestrian safety rules. In addition, they
should wear a helmet and leamn hand signals, Barre-
da said.
More than 30 Pinellas County schools plan to take
part in this year's event. Activities begin the day be-
fore with announcements at the schools. Each
school plans its own activities.
"But all take steps to practice safety as they go
along," Barreda said.
Barreda said motorists might want to allow extra
time or take an alternate route on Walk to School
Day as larger than usual numbers of adults and
children likely will be found along routes to the par-
ticipating schools.
As of Sept. 24, 31 schools had signed up to partic-
ipate, including:
Clearwater
Belcher Elementary, Belleair Elementary, High


Point Elementary and Plumb Elementary

mentary, Garrison-Jones Elementary, and San Jose

Starkey Elementary and Seminole Elementary
The Intemnational Walk to School Day began in
1997. More than 40 countries take part in the an-
nual event, according to information found at
www.walkitoschool.org.
Walking to school is a good physical activity for
students. It is good for the environment. However,
over time the activity has seen a significant de-
crease.
In 2001, 16 percent of students between the ages
of 5 and 15 walked or bicycled to and from school
as compared to 1969 when 42 percent of students
got to class by walking or riding a bike.
The international organization attributes that fact
to a number of reasons, including changes in school
sizes and locations, which resulted in schools being
too far away for students to walk or bike. Another
issue that resulted from these changes is an ever-
increasing cost of school transportation.
Barreda said while promoting physical activity
and green activities was a great addition to the an-
nual event, the sheriffs office was most focused on
pedestrian safety.
"Wer want to make sure our students get to school
safely every day," she said.

What You Don't Know and W~hat Your Doctor Doesn't Know to Tell You ...

... Can Be Harmful to Your Health

DID YOU KNOW ... that a man with gum disease is 60% more likely to develop
pancreatic cancer than a man with a healthy mouth?
DID YOU KNOW ... that a pregnant woman with gum disease is twice as likely to r
have a preterm low birth weight baby than a woman who doesn't?
DID YOU KNOW ... that 1 American dies every hour from Oral Cancer of
which gum disease plays an important role?
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, these and many other health risks go
along with gum disease and poor oral health. It is estimated that 80% of ALL ADULTS have
some form of gum disease. Most of the time, the average person perceives no symptoms. Gum
disease is rarely painful and is almost impossible for the layman to diagnose without X-Rays and

Gm Disas is't just about tooth loss and bad breath anymore. While some physicians advise thei p~ate ab~ou tthe
relationships with diseases like Heart disease, Stroke and Diabetes, it is more common than not for them to skip this process. If
you have a family history of heart problems, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, Alzheimer's, pancreatic cancer or are
pregnant, it is important that you be screened by a dental professional. Damage in the mouth caused by gum disease can never be
reversed, but it can be treated and maintained! A healthy mouth can mean a healthy life!

We focus on making beautiful smiles & building healthier lives. We perform a thorough examination & communicate with
your physician if necessary to help minimize PERIODONTAL DISEASE as a possible health risk for you.

The garden soil is ready and
seeds or vegetable plants are set
to be planted. But wait.
One of the most time-consum-
mng tasks for the gardener is to
water. Plants grow better with ad-
equate water. Just look at the
growth plants have had this sum-
mer with more normal rainfall.
Gardeners have experienced the
decline of a potted plant that
missed its daily watering.
Most vegetables prefer to keep
their leaves dry, so if we don't
have daily rain showers, (which I
won't expect) one way to water
and to simplify this task is to use
micro irrigation.
This method puts the water
right on the roots where the plant
needs it. A minimum of water is
wasted and will result in water
and money savings.
The big box stores sell kits, and
the manufacturers have thorough
directions. Basically, water is de-


roots. If they are placed close to-
gether, as in a raised bed, the
spray emitters should just meet
each other. If used in a landscape,
there will be a distance between
emitters and perhaps a drip emit-
ter would be best.
To cover a larger area, there are
stakes with higher pressure spin-
ning emitters.
It's very easy to change the
placement of emitters by using
plugs where the water is not need-
ed and putting in a new emitter
elsewhere.
To make life really easy, put a
timer on the system and it will
run automatically. There's also
nothing wrong with turning it on
for 15 minutes or so while doing a
little weeding.
Just a reminder to water edi-
bles with potable water, not re-
claimed water.

Leader, September 30, 2010


As he parked his car in the supermarket
lot, Smith realized he was an idiot. Why?! Be-
cause this was a Sunday. In the city where
Smith lived, 80 percent of the population went
to the grocery store on Sunday, crowding the
aisles and bumping their carts into each other
like good-natured cattle. Smith had ignored
the conunandment, "Remember the Sabbath
day to keep it holy. Stay out of grocery stores.
On Sunday they are the road to hell."
Smith's first challenge was to get past the
ice cream section. This store had more ice
cream than all of Norway. Smith, an ice cream
addict, at one time had walked over the body
of his grandmother to get to a half-gallon of
Breyer's butter pecan. Gritting his teeth,
Smith passed on to the produce section.
Feelings of ignorance gripped him as he
looked at all the strange vegetables. He re-
viewed the basic classes of vegetables: bulb,
inflorescent, leaf, root, stalk, tuber and -
dumb as it sounded fruit. For daily fare,
Smith knew only lettuce, tomatoes, carrots
and green peppers. Beyond that he was lost.
The vegetable bins were labeled with strange
words fennel, chard, kohlrabi, cassava,
mutabaga, okra. It was like a Turkish diction-
ary.
Fruits brought more stress. He loved ba-
nanas, but they depressed him. His friend,
Olsen, had told him at Smith's last birthday.
"Hey, Smitty, you're getting up there, aincha?
Better not buy any green bananas." Very
funny. Olsen later got shingles. Served him
right.
Smith avoided buying pears, peaches and
apples from his supermarket because they
were like rocks. They took two weeks at home
to soften. By then Smith had forgotten he even
owned the fruit. When a cloud of flies began to


Many of the French cheeses were legally pro-
tected, i.e., you could be fined for eating them
without also singing La Marseilles. Could
most shoppers tell strictly by taste the dif-
ference between Roquefort, blue cheese and
gorgonzola.? Smith doubted it.
As Smith rolled through the aisles, he tried
to picture what the store would look like if
someone banished all products that consisted
mostly of sugar, fat and starch. Half-empty, is
what he guessed. As he peered down the cere-
al aisle, stacked with 150 different brands,
one thought came through: Why? To what
good end did all this variety contribute? He
wondered if anyone would ever devise a
method of determining the physical and men-
tal health of a nation by examining its super-
markets.
Smith's shopping ended on a high note. In
front of him in the checkout line stood a tall,
slim, dark-haired woman wearing a black silk
blouse and a snug white skirt from which her
elegant legs descended into the highest-heeled
shoes in the county. In a store filled with
scruffy dressers, of which Smith was one, the
woman shone like a diamond in a coal bin.
Gazing upon her, Smith felt neither lust nor
awe, but simple gratitude for his eyesight.
Given half a chance, grocery shopping could
be marvelous.
It was also a reminder of how fortunate
most Americans are to be able to have easy,
simple access to food. In Haiti, Pakistan and a
hundred other nations millions of people lived
on a daily staple of hunger. Smith believed
that if Americans really wished to thank God
for his beneficence, they should do so in a su-
pennarket, not in a house of worship.

swann, Smith threw the fruit out.
He felt at home in the meat department.
Smith knew little about the 47 kinds of meat
cuts, but he was at home with hamburger.
The hamburger came in various percentages
of fat-free. Some packages said 60 percent fat-
free, others said 85, but cost more. A shopper
needed an engineering degree to figure it out.
Luckily, Smith had one.
He enjoyed the international atmosphere of
the store. On some days, half the customers
spoke Spanish or Portuguese, with some East-
emn European accents thrown in. Smith some-
times closed his eyes and pretended he was in
Madrid or Prague. At such times, Smith could
not hear the F word or other expletives. He
liked that. He wondered: when Hispanic teen-
agers wanted to say "Oh, my God!" did they
say "Oh, Dios mio!"?
One of Smith's favorite purchases was a
whole roast chicken. What a good deal an
entire chicken ready to carve on. No having to
put the carcass in a roasting pan, determine
the right oven heat, worry about fat dripping
out and setting the stove on fire. And then de-
ciding how soon to take the dadbumned bird
out of the oven.
The cheese counter was like a visit to the
United Nations. Limburger, havarti, tilsit, brie,
Roquefort, camembert, gruyere, muenster.

Clearwater officials are taking an aggressive step to stimulate eco-
nomic growth in the city
They sought proposals from firms interested in developing an eco-
nomic development strategic plan and awarded a $75,000 contract to
TIP Strategies of Austin, Texas, to do the work
City officials recognize they face many challenges in trying to attract
new businesses and stimulate development in Clearwater. To their
credit, city officials have candidly outlined the problems in city docu-
ments
Among those challenges are a limited availability of land. Few
parcels are zoned or available for development. Consequently, the city
has difficulty in meeting prospective site needs.
In addition, the city is increasingly meeting with businesses that
would like to relocate into the city. However, the businesses do not
qualify for any of the city's current incentive programs and may need
ast n fc al hv ha dscussions with firms that would desire to
relocate to Clearwater, bring in quality jobs and attract supporting
businesses, but the city has neither the policy framework nor the in-
centives and assistance structure to respond effectively, city officials

saAccording to the city's request for proposals, the plan will "set out a
key set of strategies, with action items, that build upon the city's cur-
rent economic asset base, identifyi how to overcome its challenges, fa-
cilitate the growth and expansion of existing industry and business
sectors, and promote key redevelopment corridors as integral to the
city's economic future. These activities will increase employment and
pos tion the Citya a great place to "live, learn wor and pollay. Te

first phase will include interviews, research and an analysis of eco-
nomic and demographic trends to understand Clearwater's economic
base and prepare an economic analysis document.
In the second phase, consultants will research and create a vision
for economic development, profile target industries and make recom-
mendations regarding them, and identify preliminary opportunities
and strategies for consideration.
In the third phase, consultants will develop strategies, a marketing
plan and an implementation program. Documents to be supplied to
the city will include a strategic plan, a marketing strategy and an im-
plementation matrix that identifies priorities, actions to be taken and
measurements for success.
City officials are just beginning to form a blueprint for economic
growth in Clearwater. The key to success, beyond the preparation of
the plan, is a continued commitment on the part of the City Council to
carry out its strategies.
At a time when governments are facing financial difficulties, the
$75,000 the council is spending might raise some eyebrows among
taxpayers, but it shows that the council is paying more than lip service
to improve the quality of life for Clearwater's businesses and residents
alike.

Keep Florida beautiful
Editor:
You know, when I think of Florida, I think of pristine beaches and
beautiful landscape. I also think of the rich character of the people,
the ecology minded and the recycling habits. I am a middle-aged
woman, who was bom in Oklahoma City, Okla. Who, due to my hus-
bands expertise in the telecom industry, has given me the great op-
portunity to travel this great country for most of the last decade.
Florida has gotten a great chunk of that time. Florida is one of my fa-
vorite states. Mostly for the beautiful beaches it has to offer.
Before this decade, a great friend of mine and I vacationed here
most every year. At the present time, I have the gift of living in a nice
little house in an intracoastal neighborhood of Indian Rocks Beach.
We get trash pick up service two times a week, but, only get a recy-
cling pick-up of newspapers. I also watched on the news, where a
beach city was thinking about making recycling mandatory for busi-
nesses. Surprisingly, there was controversy. One of the businesses
was complaining of having to spend time sorting trash from recy-
i alos. Myhtehiouh c s spu oo oadiecy lng can for the patrons to
Then, I noticed at the beaches, there were plenty of trash recepta-
cles on the beach, but, no recycling receptacles. I think they should
be side by side. I did notice that around the areas, there were recy-
cling bins, but, for the tourist, to which these beaches cater, they
weren't easy to seek out. And, really, who on vacation would seek out
recycling bins. Time is precious to all people, but, when you are on a
limited vacation, there are definitely going to be comers cut. I have
the advantage of not working, and I have found that I even get lazy
(especially when it rains) about dragging my recycling down the
block, just to find that I can only recycle plastic bottles and newspa-
pers. The newspapers I take to my curb.
What about all of the other recyclables? I remember going to San
Francisco and the garbage pick up patrons garbage bill was dis-
counted depending on how much they recycled. They picked up all
recycling, not just a few items.
They take a variety of recyclables, yet are still limited. I think these
items, that are taken to be recycled, are then sold. So why doesn't
Florida make it easier, for the tourists and residents to recycle. There
is always a push to recycle, to go green, but, why isn't it made easier.
::.ddnmt Foidn tk t im nd mae n no mk r cc ig: es
in tourism and yearly migrations of "Snowbirds", why not take pride
in how the garbage is handled.
We have to pay extra for the items that we buy in recyclable con-
tainers, then we have to throw them in a landfill? What is the sense
of that. Where is the pride? And all of the extra money we spend on
these? Literally in the trash. With all of the overpaid government offi-
cials, couldn't someone research this? It would give Floridians a real
sense of pride and make it easy for them to participate in the better-
ment of their beaches, conununity, state, the world's ecology and eas-
ily be able to "go green." The tourists would participate, mostly
because they want to continue to visit beautiful beaches, and the
shame of not participating and tossing a lonely empty water bottle
into the trash would tag them as lazy. I propose, the cities of Florida
offer recycle bins to every resident. I also propose they offer a com-
post bin and have a compost pick up.. There could be a big compost
drum for all of the compostables to be kept in, and the residents of
that conununity can come and take what they need with no charge. If
there becomes too much, bag it and sell it to local nurseries or retail
stores. There would be very little "garbage" to pick up and it would
truly make a statement that Florida wants to be a leader in the
"going green" movement that is rapidly spreading throughout the
world.
The existing sanitation employees could just be redistributed'
which in tum gives them a sense of pride to be a part of this move-
ment and not someone whose job is considered a nasty one. This
would also keep the landfills at a minimum. Let's keep Florida beau-
tiful. It is too amazingly beautiful not to.

Brilliant column on Koran-burning controversy
Editor:
Thank you for the brilliant column "Heart of the matter" by Chary
Southmayd. It was the most comprehensive wrap-up of the events
concerning the crazed pastor and his Koran-burning intent of any
other media.
Southmayd writes with true feeling, insight, amazing talent and
superior command of English. Her remarkable political knowledge,
no doubt, has its roots from her years in Washington. She is indeed a
tremendous asset to your publications and a rare gift to your read-
ers.

The Midori Salon received an award from Michael
Redmond, president of Onesta, for being a green
salon and spa. Redmond is a salon environmental-
ist. Onesta, based in Minneapolis, Minn., carries a
variety of hair-care products that are free of danger-
ous chemicals, preservatives commonly found in
most shampoos, conditioners and hair-styling prod-
ucts on today's market.
In addition to the natural products, Holland said,
Midori has a huge recycling initiative. "Whe recycle all
our paper, packaging and mail printouts," Holland
said. "W~e collect and recycle hair and send it to
companies that use it to soak up spills. We reuse
the popcorn packaging peanuts as toe separators
during pedicures. We recycle our color bottles and
customers can bring in containers to be recycled.
"American industry is slowly beginning to police it-
self regarding beauty products. Europe is the 'green'
leader in the cosmetology world," Holland said.

IARGO Beauty may be only skin deep but the
impact of beauty products on individuals and the
environment can last forever. That's why Amber
Holland of the Midori Salon and Spa in Largo decid-
ed to go "green.
'Whhen I first started in this business," she said,
"the woman I assisted came down with a rare
tumor. That opened my eyes. Beauty products can
be very toxic both for the beauty professional and
the customer. That's when I decided to investigate
nontoxic, organic products and look into recycling,"
she added.
Holland opened Midori in 2007. She holds a busi-
ness management degree from the University of
Central Florida and continued her education at
Artistic Institute in Orlando. She also teaches "green
initiative" classes at St. Petersburg College.
Midori, which means "green" in Japanese, is to-
tally committed to using safe beauty products and

The AARP Automobile Insurance Program from The Hartford is underwritten by Hartford Fire Insurance Company and its affiliates, One Hartford
Plaza, Hartford CTO06155. In Washington, the Program is underwritten by Trumbull Insurance Company. AARP membership is required for
Program eligibility in most states. This Program is provided by The Hartford, not AARP or its affiliates. The Hartford pays a royalty fee to
AARP for the use of AARP's intellectual property. These fees are used for the general purposes of AARP! Applicants are individually
underwritten and some may not qualify. Specific features, credits and discounts may vary and may not be available in all states in accordance
with state filings and applicable law. The premiums quoted by an authorized agent for an AARP program policy include the costs associated
with the advice and counsel that your local agent provides.
Some benefits, including First Accident Forgiveness and the Disappearing Deductible, are only available with the optional
Advantage Plus package. A policy without these benefits is also available. [Call for details.] To qudlify for these two benefits, all drivers on
the policy must have a clean record (no accidents or violations) for five consecutive years in most states. For the Disappearing Deductible,
these five years must include a period of three consecutive years as a policyholder in the AARP Auto Insurance Program (commencing after
the effective date of the policy issued through this offer). PA drivers are not eligible for the complete disappearance of the deductible,
although it will be reduced to a minimum of $100. The First Accident Forgiveness benefit is not available in Delaware
It Ifyou are age 50 or older, once you're insured through this Program for at least 60 days, you cannot be refused renewal as long as
applicable premiums are paid when due. Also, you and other customary drivers of your vehicles must retain valid licenses, remain physically
and mentally capable of operating an automobile, have no convictions for driving while intoxicated and must not have obtained your policy
through material misrepresentation.

Her worst fears are confirmed when the parents try to harm Lily, their
only daughter. Frightened for her life, Emily enlists the help of Detective
Mike Barron (lan McShane) and takes Lily in while she continues the
search for the perfect foster family. Just as it seems as though Lily is on
her way to a more loving home, under the guidance of Emily and psychi-
atrist (Bradley Cooper), dark forces surrounding this young girl come to
light and, little do they know, their attempts to protect her will only bring
on greater horror.

www.atributetomusic, an inti-
mate Venetian delight located
just a few small canals away from
st. Mark's Square.
Over the weekend Venice will
celebrate the Rendatore Festival,
with massive fireworks to mark
the end of the black plaque in
1577. And we are here! On Mon-
day we will board the Crystal
Serenity to begin the incredible
Black Sea cruise I dreamed of in
the hospital's recovery room.
Number one on my bucket list!
Yes, age is just a number. What's
on your bucket list
Robert Swanson is an author,
seasoned traveler and jilmmalker
who has traveled to more than 50
countries. He writes an occasional
column for Tampa Bay Newspa-
pers. Swanson may be contacted
at cinerobert~yahoo.com.


In the hospital's surgical recov-
ery area a familiar female voice
whispered in my ear saying, "The
doctor says you are good to go,
and remember, a Crystal Cruise
is at the top of your bucket list.
And we are going!" Clearing my
mind from the anesthetic of hav-
ing stints placed in my 82-year-
old arteries, the words "bucket
list" and "we are going" was a
clarion call to action!
Seems I've always had a "buck-
et list," an invigorating mind
game that ignores the minutia of
life by mentally exploring our in-
credible planet. From the time I
was able to read travel books my
top bucket list dream was a
grand tour of Europe. It came
true in 1958, sailing over on the
Queen Mary (now a hotel in Long
Beach, Calif.). As I began a career


trips you wish to take, with the
energy levels of your "mature"
years!
Wobbly knees, sore backs, vi-
sual and auditory challenges.
Hey, remember that Vince Lom-
bardi told his Packers "champi-
ons play with the small hurts."
The fact you are still here is a
tribute to your stamina and ex-
cellent pharmaceuticals. So plan
on.
As Confucius wrote, "all long
marches begin with the first
step," and the first step of any
trip today is usually at an over-
crowded airport. I feel most of the
world's airports were designed by
shoe manufacturers (Tampa In-
ternational is a rare exception),
as the slog to a boarding gate
may wear out a good pair of walk-
ing shoes, not to mention the feet


and ankles they encase.
Arriving at any airport, any-
where, I initiate my personal en-
ergy conservation plan. Getting a
wheel chair.
Using this free service I zip
through check-in areas, security
and on to the departing gate. The
same in customs and immigra-
tion.
Tip: Ask your airline for this
energy saving service when you
book your flights. And that brings
us to another issue: anxiety of ar-
rival.
The truth be known all travel-
ers, me included, have tinges of
anxiety when arriving in unfamil-
iar foreign destinations. The bab-
ble of strange languages,
confusing direction signs, finding
a taxi etc. Take the strain out of
your arrival by hiring a "meet and


greet" service.
Waiting for our arrival at the
Venice airport was a smiling
young lady (Sofia) holding a wel-
come sign with my name on it. A
comforting sight! Sofia and her
colleague collected our baggage
and smoothly guided us (me in a
wheel chair) through the byways
of this unfamiliar airport, and on
to a water taxi for the trip to our
hotel. Thus, the concerns of find-
ing our way in a strange foreign
airport vanished.
Gliding along the waterways
the glories of Venice unfolded be-
fore us. St. Mark's Basilica ap-
peared, followed by rows of
indescribable baroque palaces,
and ornately decorated piazzas.
Our water taxi docked at our
hotel ... romantically named
"Residenzia, A Tribute To Music,"


Age is
just a number
Robert Swanson


as a documentary film maker n
bucket list was filled and refilled
as I filmed locations in 58 coun-
tries, and going round the world
twice.
But wait a moment. What
about your bucket list? It's never
too late to start one. Just close
your eyes and open your imagi-
nation! Will it be Paris, a cruise,
or camping in a pup tent? After
vicariously exploring the world's
byways (even flirting with dipping
into your kid's inheritance), get
back to earth and ... realistically

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.
