Famed shipwreck artifacts on display locally
By WAYNE AYERS
LARGO Prized artifacts recovered from the
shipwreck Atocha are on display at the Silver
Queen/Belleair Coins on West Bay Drive. Two
silver bars weighing about 70 pounds each are
the most recent acquisitions, said Belleair
Coins president Art Arbutine. The bars were
used to mint Spanish coins, both in the New
World and Spain.
The Atocha's discovery in the mid-1980s by
famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher was a cause
celebre that spawned several books, a movie
and tons of publicity. The legend was further
enhanced when the U.S. government sued
Fisher for title to the wreck. Following eight
years of litigation, Fisher won the case in a
Supreme Court decision.
Arbutine said the bars he obtained, which
are pure silver, came from someone who "was
probably an investor in the venture with Mel
Fisher." They are accompanied by certificates
of authenticity that include a photograph of
the unique markings on each bar.
When the price of silver goes up, collectors
bring in items like the silver bars for sale, Ar-
'The people that had these, had them for a
long time," he said.
The Atocha's remains lie near the Dry Tortu-
gas, about 35 miles from Key West. The silver
was mined in Peru and was on its way to Spain
in 1662 when the Atocha was caught in a hur-
ricane, Arbutine said. Spanish treasure ships
would sail to Havana, Cuba, then go halfway to
Florida before making a right turn for Spain.

Fall Jubilee 'brings
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO The writing on the grocery store window at Heritage
Village said "Arbuckle coffee, 29 cents; fresh eggs, 13 cents; Dill
pickles, 10 cents; bananas, 10 cents; kidney pills, 49 cents."
If only it were so.
"Do you want kidney pills?" a vendor asked, jokingly.
And those items are long gone, same as are bottles of pop at 5
cents each. But at $1, small bottles of Coke, Sprite and Water
from a vintage ice cooler in front of the store sold steadily during
the 32nd annual Fall Jubilee Oct. 23.
'That brings back memories," said a customer, waiting in line
for a drink.
Besides cold drinks, a variety of food, crafts and performers
attracted a crowd to the Jubilee.
Doug Negretti, chairman of a committee that is restoring a
1917 LaFrance fire engine, spent time teaching children about
the truck, which still runs. The committee started restoring the
engine three years ago.
The license tag bears the name "Esther," after Esther Morris,
who along with her husband Mike were former owners of the
pumper-type fire truck which is the original Belleview Biltmore
"We are going to start it and take it out of the barn for the first
time in 12 years," Negretti said. "It will be in a month or so.

County Historical Society, which supports Heritage Village oper-
ations and programs.

City municipal election: a recap
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO They've talked about whether the city should plant
trees; they've disagreed over the privatization of services, subsidies
for the city's golf course and the Cultural Center.
They've been asked what can be done about empty buildings and
whether they favor increasing the sales tax to improve mass transit.
They've even been asked where they like to eat.
For the past month, candidates for two seats on the City Commis-
sioners have addressed numerous issues at three forums, two host-
ed by the Largo Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and one by the
Republican Club of Largo.
For the most part at least at the forums the candidates have
shied away from personal attacks against each other, opting instead
to tout their experience, background or other qualifications.
Here is a recap of the candidates for Largo City Commission and a
proposed charter issue:
The incumbent, Commissioner Harriet Crozier, 66, is retired. She
has said her experience, knowledge of issues and her ability to work
with other governments give her an advantage over her opponents.
She represents Largo on five agencies. Crozier has been a commis-
sioner from 1993 to 1999 and 2000 to 2010.
As a result of property tax reductions, in the last three years, she
said, the city has reduced the budget by more than $10 million.
"While the reductions have taken place, the commission has been
able to keep all the services you value most, and we have been able
to keep city facilities open for your continued enjoyment," she said,
at the chamber's Oct. 19 luncheon forum.
Robert Hunsicker, 67, is a self-employed automation specialist.
He said his qualifications include serving on the city's Planning
Board for eight years.
He contends that Largo is spending too much money and must
get back to providing basic services.
"Like many Largo taxpayers, I watched the city's budget explode
over the past few years. Unfortunately, the incumbent and some

Robert Avery, 25, is a public safety instructor and an activities
Avery also contends the city has spending problems.
"There's no way we have reduced the budget," he said at the
forum. "Our budget keeps growing and growing."
The city, he said, needs to go back to basics, focusing on "what
matters the most, the citizens and businesses in the city. We need to
be a pro-growth city that helps businesses grow. When businesses
grow, so do your tax bases and all your revenue."
Seat 6 incumbent Commissioner Woody Brown, 40, is finishing
his first term in office. He has served on several boards, such as the
Recreation Parks and Arts Advisory Board and is involved in many
organizations, such as the Largo Rotary Club for 10 years. He estab-
lished Main Street Chiropractic in Largo in 2002.
The commission has seen challenges in the past three years, he
said, noting the reduction of property values. To adapt to the budget
deficits, the city has had to "cut programs, increase cost recovery in
parks and recreation and ask each and every department to look for
"I'm proud of what we have accomplished as a City Commission,"
he said. "I think the city of Largo is now leaner and more efficient
and a better city for it."
John Atanasio, 85, the president of a commercial real estate com-
pany specializing in shopping centers, has served on several city
He has cited his experience as a businessman as among his top
Atanasio has repeatedly said he believes that the distribution of
department budgets is skewed. He has questioned why police and
fire departments have a budget of $18 million each, but the Recre-
ation, Parks and Arts department's budget is higher than both, at
"I honestly feel that a definite change must come about," he said
in a recent interview.
Doug Lardner, 31, is also running for Seat 6. He operates a pest
control business. He serves on the city's Community Development
Lardner said he became involved in city government as the
founder of a street hockey league, asking city officials to build a
hockey rink, and they did.
He has said he's from the working class, and that he will bring
out-of-the-box thinking into City Hall, having solved problems in
people's homes for years as "the bug guy."
"I'm in touch with the Largo residents," he said at a forum. "I
know what they want."
City voters are being asked, basically, whether to extend commis-
sioners' terms from three to four years.
Under the amendment, four-year terms for commissioners who
are elected to Seats 5 and 6 will begin in November 2010; Seats 3
and 4 and the mayor, November 2012; and Seats 1 and 2, Novem-
ber 2014. The amendment will require an election in 2011 to elect

Largo Police Chief John Carroll, at the podium, introduced Officer
Jason Misner and his new police department K-9, "Loki," to the
Largo City Commission Oct. 19. Loki is a German shepherd that
was born in Slovakia but "they sent him to Kentucky where he

hosted by the St. Petersburg Police Department. Misner has been
a member of the K-9 unit since 2003.

Several commissioners have repeatedly said they favored putting
the proposed city charter amendment before the voters because of
the costs associated with holding stand-alone elections.
According to the county supervisor of elections office, a stand-
alone election in Largo costs about $72,400. A Largo election held in
conjunction with a county election is estimated to cost $5,860 if all
races fit on a single ballot card, which is usually the case.
Proponents of extending terms have also pointed out that turnout
in city elections is higher when held during countywide elections.
Probably the most outspoken opponent has been former Mayor
Bob Jackson, who has said that "democracy is not cheap."
If the city want's to save money, he said at a recent meeting, "cut
the commission down to five members or do the election with one

City seeks grant for McGough Nature
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO City officials are going to apply for a grant of up to
$150,000 to develop, exhibit and program upgrades for the Nature
Center at McGough Park.
The projects proposed are the development of an interactive applica-
tion for use on a smart phone or similar mobile technology and an in-
teractive educational computer program that will use a game format to
teach about the environment.
City officials also will seek funding for upgrades to the Internet and
other devices at the center to support the projects. They plan to have
self-guided tours, interactive games and other activities. The project,
city officials said, has the potential to generate revenue for nature pro-
The Institute of Museum and Library Services, a branch of the feder-
al government, is seeing grant applications for the Museums for Ameri-
ca grant program.
The game component of the program could be adapted to integrate
other city educational goals, such as the Environmental Service De-
partment, the stormwater Program and the recycling program.
City officials plan to match the grant through in-kind contributions
such as staff time as well as through existing funding designated for
support of programming with the park.
The interactive programs are useful in dealing with animal habitats,
since they change constantly, city officials said.
Visitors to McGough Park may see gopher tortoises' holes, said
Stephanie Waters, city grant administrator, at the City Commission's
Oct. 19 meeting.
"So being able to interact with a program to learn about the gopher
tortoises, how many we think are there, their mating habits and what
not" will help bring youths "who are very media-driven" back into nat-
ural settings, Waters said.
It will give the city to provide programming without having guides,
Once the program is established at the park, it can be used in other
areas of the city and other parks, Water said.

Miniature golf course
granted beer license
MADEIRA BEACH The application for a beer li-
cense by the owners of an indoor miniature golf
course at John's Pass Village was questioned
briefly by city commissioners but later approved.
Over the past several years, alcoholic beverage li-
censes have been granted to a cigar store, T-shirt
shop, two ice cream stores and a shop that sells
bottled Florida wines.
With each request has come growing concern
among city commissioners about the changing
character of the Village. When the ice cream store
got its permit, Mayor Pat Shontz commented on
"the creation of a beer flea market down there."
The T-shirt shop became, in Commissioner
Steve Kochick's words, "a big square bar with a few
T-shirts on the wall." Today, the shirts are gone
and full attention is paid to beer and wine sales.
When an alcohol license request for a black light
miniature golf course came up at the Oct. 12 com-
mission meeting, commissioners decided it was
time to push back.
"Sooner or later, we have to stop this," said Vice
Mayor Terry Lister, presiding in place of Shontz.
City attorney Michael Connolly advised the com-
mission that John's Pass Village is "wet" zoned,
and outlined the factors to be considered in grant-
ing an alcoholic beverage request.
Will the request adversely affect the character of
the neighborhood, create congestion or cause a
safety hazard? Is the use compatible with the loca-
tion and will not adversely affect public safety?
Commissioner Nancy Oakley wanted to know if
the owners could shut down the miniature golf op-
eration and just serve beer. They could, replied
City Manager W.D. Higginbotham.
The commission decided to make continued op-
eration of the miniature golf course a condition of
the alcohol permit.
'The golf has to be open for them to sell beer,"
Lister said. Otherwise, the request to sell beer and
wine would adversely affect the character of the
That condition appeared to satisfy Connolly, and
the application was approved 4-0 by the commis-
City plants new trees at park
SEMINOLE If you're one of the thousands who
attended the city's Music in the Park series this
year at Seminole City Park, you probably noticed
the addition of many new trees to the grounds at
the popular park.
Jeremy Hockenbury, director of Public Works,
said the new oak trees are part of the city's tree
succession plan to provide a tree canopy in years
'We've had several trees the last couple of years
that we've had to remove," Hockenbury said. "As
the budget allows, we plant additional trees to pro-
vide future canopy."
The action came about following the recommen-
dation of the city's tree advisory board.
Hockenbury said two trees that failed were re-
moved recently and 14 5-inch live oaks were plant-
ed. The trees that failed were a camphor and a
'We have several camphor trees and laurel oaks
(at City Park)," Hockenbury said. "Laurel oaks live
50 to 70 years. So we know we have about 20
years left in most of them."
The new live oaks were installed by Perry's Nurs-
ery of St. Petersburg at a cost of $250 each, Hock-
According to about.com, live oaks are native to
North America and reach 40 to 60 feet in height. A
60- to 100-foot spread is normal.
It is considered a tough, enduring tree with very
good wind resistance.
Redington Beach considers
tougher measures on solicitors
REDINGTON BEACH Commissioners are con-
sidering measures to put more bite into the town's
Due to an increase in door-to-door solicitations,
Vice Mayor Fred Steiermann proposed changes
Oct. 19 to clarify the town's ordinance.
Steiermann suggested installing "no solicitation"
signs similar to those in North Redington Beach at
11 points in town. The consensus of the commis-
sion was to review the ordinance at a future meet-
Currently the ordinance reads "It shall be un-
lawful for any person to sell or peddle or attempt to
sell or peddle any commercial products whatsoever
or to solicit or attempt to solicit for any organiza-
tion from door to door within the town without first
obtaining a permit from the town clerk."
Town attorney Caitlin Sirico suggested excluding
the last part because the town does not currently
issue permits for door-to-door sales.
She suggested that people violating the no-solici-
tation ordinance may be subject to a penalty after
the commission discussed the code enforcement
The commission is also considering an ordi-
nance on the placement of elevated air condition-
ing units at new construction in relation to the
units blocking a neighbor's view. If passed, it
would require owners of the construction site to get
a variance from the town before the installation
can take place.
No LED signs, Bluffs
BELLEAIR BLUFFS The City Commission
voted unanimously at its Oct. 18 regular meeting
to delete the prohibition of LED display signs from
the municipal code.
Charter Review Committee Chairman Paul
Kuykendall said at last week's workshop that busi-
nesses can use LED signs as long as they are not
However, Robert David, the city's public works
director, maintains that the electronic signs are
still prohibited. In comments made following the
meeting, David said LED lights can be used only as
an illumination source. He pointed to a section of
the amended code that prohibits "electronic signs,
except when required as traffic device signs." David
went on to say the code was changed to permit
LED lighting as an illumination source because it
is more cost efficient than incandescent or fluores-
David was explicit in his understanding that the
signs are not allowed.
'You cannot have them," he said. "So if I get a
request for an (electronic) LED sign, I will not pass

BELLEAIR The financial meltdown that crip-
pled Latitude Management Real Estate Investors'
plans for the Belleview Biltmore may have sealed
the fate of the old hotel as well.
Belleair Mayor Gary Katica, responding to ru-
mors, announced Oct. 19 before the Town Commis-
sion meeting that he had met with potential
investors regarding the Belleview Biltmore property.
Daniel Ades and his brother, Raphael, of Kawa
Capital Management in Miami flew into town last
week and met with Katica and Town Manager
Micah Maxwell for just under an hour.
'They made some inquiries about what could be
done with the property," Katica said. "I told them
anything was on the table but the golf course that
can't be touched."
Katica later said that Ades told him they were in-
terested in "enhancing" the golf course.
In a phone interview Tuesday, Ades said that as
much as 70 percent of the historic Biltmore struc-
ture would likely have to be demolished.
"We've shown the property to at least 15 hotel
management groups and they all agree, the hotel is
not a sustainable economic investment," Ades said.
"It's not on the water and it's surrounded by a golf
'We're doing our due diligence now, but my big
fear is that we'll wind up in a lawsuit that holds us
up for two years," Ades said. "I don't have enough
hair on my head for that kind of trouble."
Ades said they have decided they don't want the
'We have a solution for the Cabana Club and we
have a solution for the golf course. We're willing to
finance the acquisition," he said. "But, we need
someone to come up with $3 million for the hotel."
The roughly $30 million asking price is a stum-
bling point as well, Ades admitted. He wouldn't say
how much the owner was asking but it is estimated
that figure could be nearer the purported $8 million
to $12 million paid by Urdang Capital Management
for the property in 2003.
'We're still negotiating," he said.
"This is the saddest thing I've seen in all my
years of looking at distressed properties," Ades said.
"It's a shame."

Local lawyer arrested
for trafficking oxycodone
CLEARWATER Detectives assigned to Strategic Diversion Task
Force have arrested a defense attorney for trafficking in oxycodone pills
with the intent to deliver them to the Pinellas County Jail.
According to detectives, detention deputies at the jail received a tip
Oct. 21 that the attorney, Byron T. Christopher, 31, of St. Petersburg,
was bringing controlled substances into the jail. The tipster further told
detectives that Christopher was in the process of attempting to obtain
the pills from a third party to introduce them into the jail.
Acting on that tip, undercover detectives set up a deal through that
third party in which the attorney agreed to deliver 50 oxycodone pills to
the jail and in return would receive 20 oxycodone pills for himself.
At about 2:30 p.m. Oct. 22, Christopher received the pills from the
third party during a meeting at a Mobile gas station, 4899 Ulmerton
Road in Clearwater, at which time detectives arrested the suspect.
The investigation continues.
Pair arrested for aggravated battery
SEMINOLE Pinellas County sheriffs deputies arrested two suspects
for aggravated battery following an attack on two men dressed in beer
bottle costumes who were sitting in front of their Seminole home.
According to the report from the Sheriffs Office, the attack occurred
at about 2 a.m. on Oct. 23 in front of a private residence located at 8971
The suspects identified as Kodi Cool, 17, of St. Petersburg and Timo-
thy Valentine, 23, of Pinellas Park were walking north on Seminole
Boulevard when they passed by the victims' residence. The suspects al-
legedly made comments toward the victims identified as Allen McGui-
ness, 52, and James Benevento, 36. Some words were exchanged and
the suspects continued on, the report said.
A short time later, the suspects returned to the victims' residence at
which time more words were exchanged. The victims asked the suspects
to leave. The suspects then reportedly attacked the victims at which
time a fight ensued. The suspects then got into a vehicle occupied by
two women, who witnessed the fight.
According to deputies, the women dropped off the suspects at the
Leisure World Mobile Home Park in Pinellas Park and called police as
soon as they felt it was safe to do so.
Deputies responded to the scene. McGuiness was transported to
Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. He
suffered injuries to his head. Benevento was transported to Bayfront
Medical Center for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries with a cut to
The suspects were subsequently arrested at the mobile home park
without further incident. Cool was arrested for two-counts felony aggra-
vated battery and transported to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Cen-
ter. Valentine was arrested for two counts aggravated battery and
transported to the Pinellas County Jail.
It is not clear at this time if any comments were made about the cos-
tumes; or if they were in any way related to the attack, the report said.
Alcohol appears to have been a factor in the dispute.
The investigation continues.
Man robbed, pistol-whipped on Pinellas Trail
DUNEDIN Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives assigned to the Rob-
bery/Homicide Unit are investigating a case in which a man was robbed
and pistol-whipped on the Pinellas Trail in Dunedin.
The crime occurred on the trail near Pershing Street at about 10:30
p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23.
According to investigators, the victim was walking home from a bar,
when he was approached from behind by three males on bikes. The
suspects demanded money from the victim. The victim complied by
handing over his wallet. The suspects then pistol-whipped the victim
and fled the scene.
The victim was able to get himself to a nearby home and asked for
The victim, a 53-year-old male, was transported by air to Bayfront
Medical Center for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries.
The suspects are described as three black males on bikes, possibly
minors. They were dressed in dark clothing.
Anyone with information that may assist investigators in this case is
asked to contact the Sheriffs Office at 582-6200 or to remain anony-
mous contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
Two arrested for boat thefts
PINELLAS PARK Two local men were arrested Oct. 21 at a Pinellas
Park storage facility in connection with thefts of several boats.
Mark A. Conner, 38, of Treasure Island was arrested for scheme to
defraud and four counts of grand theft, sheriffs reports said.
Lawrence Preston Plumstead, 44, of Seminole was arrested for five
counts of grand theft.
Detectives began investigating Conner, the owner of Suncoast Marine,
8290 Bay Pines Blvd., St. Petersburg, in August after receiving com-
plaints from persons who placed their boats for sale on consignment
and suspected fraudulent business practices were taking place, the re-
port said. Further investigation and interviews revealed that Conner and
an unknown associate might also be involved in the theft of boats and
shipping the boats overseas to Australia. Detectives said Conner would
accept vessels on consignment, sell them overseas without paying off
the lending institutions.
The Sheriffs Strategic Enforcement Section began surveillance on
Conner and his associate, later identified as Plumstead. The surveil-
lance led deputies to a storage facility at 10830 Canal St. in Pinellas
Park where both men were seen shrink wrapping a boat for apparent
shipment overseas. The vessel, a Scout (walk-around), had been report-
ed stolen from Pinellas Park.
On Oct. 21, the men were observed removing the stolen boat from
storage unit E of the storage facility, and the two were arrested for grand
Detectives then obtained a search warrant for adjacent storage unit D
where they located four more vessels and four trailers. The vessels were
verified as stolen in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties. The vessels
were a Boston Whaler (center console), a Pro Line (center console), a
Century (center console) and a Century (walk-around). All vessels were
between 21-25 feet.
A detective noticed that the Century walk-around looked similar to
one he had seen in a video on the Internet. The video, showing the ves-
sel being stolen from the victim's residence in Hillsborough County on
Oct. 9, had been posted on YouTube by the owner, Robert Ashe, in
hopes of finding the vessel or any leads to the suspect. The video, which
can be seen at www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0sungAwdoc, shows a sus-
pect hooking the vessel and driving away with it.
Ashe also had reported the theft of the vessel to the Hillsborough
County Sheriffs Office. Detectives were able to verify that the 24-foot
Century 2900 walk-around found in the storage unit was the vessel
stolen from Ashe's home.
All of the vessels were removed from the storage unit and impounded
by the sheriffs office.
Additional charges are pending. The investigation continues.
Conner remained in the Pinellas County Jail with bonds totaling
$77,000. Plumstead also remains in the county jail with bonds totaling
with armed robbery
MADEIRA BEACH Three Madeira Beach teens were arrested by
Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies Oct. 19 following an armed robbery
attempt at a car wash.
Michael A. Raney, 19, and Damon A. Gray, 15, both of 14909 First
St. E., Apt. 2, were charged with robbery. In addition, Raney was
charged with possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony.
A 17-year-old female juvenile, whose name cannot be released under
state law, was charged with one count of obstruction, which is a misde-
meanor.Al three were taken to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center.
According to a sheriffs report, a 78-year-old Tennessee man was
washing his van at Car Care Center Car Wash, 14917 Gulf Blvd., at
about 12:58 p.m. when he was approached by the two male suspects
pointing a semi-automatic handgun. The two demanded money. Howev-
er, the victim refused to comply and they ran east from the location
Deputies set up a perimeter as canine Deputy Robert Livernois and
his dog Kosmo, tracked them from the car wash where the suspects
were last seen. Kosmo tracked directly to a nearby Gulf Boulevard
apartment and stopped at the door. Deputies spoke with a female juve-
nile who answered the door and gave false information to deputies as
she harbored the two suspects inside.
Deputies contacted the girl's mother by phone and she gave the
names of the persons who should be at that apartment. Deputies
called out the names and the suspects came walking out unarmed.A
.45-caliber semi-automatic was found later inside the apartment.

Unemployment numbers down in Pinellas County
By SUZETTE PORTER
The latest numbers from the Florida Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion shows Pinellas County's not seasonally adjusted unemployment
numbers on a downward trend.
In September, the rate was 11.9 percent, compared to August at
12.2 percent. The county's unemployment for September 2009 was
Pinellas County's unemployment rate was slightly lower than the
state's, which the report shows to be at 12.0, not seasonally adjusted.
The unemployment rate for the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater
metropolitan statistical area also declined from 12.6 in August to 12.4
in September. However, the state's report said the local MSA is losing
the most jobs 2,400 from August to September.
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSA includes Hernando, Hillsbor-
ough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
All counties in the local MSA showed a decline in not seasonally ad-
justed unemployment numbers. Hernando dropped from 15.1 percent
in August to 14.8 percent. Hillsborough dropped from 12.5 to 12.2;
In September 2009, Pinellas County had a
labor force of 451,197 with 399,593
employed and 51,604 unemployed.
Pasco from 13.3 to 13.1; and Pinellas from 12.2 to 11.9 percent.
Translating the numbers to people, Pinellas County had a labor

with 399,593 employed and 51,604 unemployed.
The national not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for
September was 9.2 percent with more than 14 million unemployed.
More than a million people were unemployed in Florida.
Florida's total nonagricultural employment in September was just
over 7.2 million, representing a decline of 11,100 jobs, according to the
state report. Florida's annual job growth rate was up 0.4 percent, rep-
resenting an increase of 27,200 jobs since September 2009. It is the
third consecutive month the state has shown positive job growth.
"As the nation slowly emerges from the economic recession, Florida's
workforce partners remain focused on identifying growth industries
and helping prepare job seekers for current and future opportunities,"
said Agency for Workforce Innovations Director Cynthia Lorenzo.
Lorenzo said "encouraging indicators of recovery" included recent in-
creases in online job postings, as well as the over-the-year job growth.
Online job postings were up 2.3 percent for September the fourth
consecutive month of gains.
"Since the official end of the recession in June 2009, online job de-
mand in Florida has increased by more than 67,000 jobs," the report
The industries gaining the most jobs continue to be private educa-
tion and health services. Job growth also was reported in professional
and business services; trade, transportation and utilities; and leisure
and hospitality. Job losses continue for industries involved in financial
activities, construction, manufacturing, government and information.

Charter provision on ballot
By SUZETTE PORTER
Voters will decide the fate of an amendment to
Pinellas County's Charter during the Nov. 2 gen-
The amendment, proposed by the 2010 Charter
Review Commission, would increase the time be-
tween sessions of future commissions from six to
eight years to coincide with the presidential elec-
tion cycle when voter turnout is typically higher.
The Charter Review Commission also would be
required to hold at least two public hearings be-
fore sending recommendations to the Board of
The current charter requires that a commission
be convened every six years to review the opera-
tion of county government. The charter also re-
quires that the new commission be appointed in
December and be organized by the third week in
January. The work must be completed by July
Members of the 2010 commission discussed an
ongoing concern that it often takes four to six
weeks for it to take care of housekeeping matters,
including electing a chair and vice chair, selecting
support staff and briefings on issues. Oftentimes
another month is taken up with conducting hear-
ings on the issues.
'Thus the charter effectively allows only three to
four months of time to actually examine issues,
take testimony, develop consensus and prepare
recommendations," said the review commission's
final report. "All other charters in Florida grant
CRC's at least one year to complete their work."
If voters approve the amendment, future char-
ter review commission's would be appointed no
later than Aug. 1 of the year before the general
election, allowing for more work time.
If voters approve the
amendment, the next
commission would be
appointed no later than Aug.
1, 2015 and every eight years
thereafter. If the commission
proposes amendments to the
charter, they would be placed
on the 2016 general election.
The 2010 commission was established less
than four years after the last. Voters approved al-
lowing the 2004 commission to remain in exis-
tence through Dec. 1, 2006, to complete its work.
Nine of the original members agreed to serve the
The 2006 commission recommended an
amendment to delay the appointment of the 2010
commission and change the interval of commis-
sions to eight years to coincide with the presiden-
tial election. Voters did not approve the
Future commissions would be allowed, at their
discretion, to stay in existence through the gener-
al election to respond to questions from the pub-
lic. The 13-member commission, per charter
requirements, is comprised of a mix of elected offi-
cials and members of the public.
If voters approve the amendment, the next
commission would be appointed no later than
Aug. 1, 2015 and every eight years thereafter. If
the commission proposes amendments to the
charter, they would be placed on the 2016 general

Eagle's nest changes plans for recreation center
By JULIANA A. TORRES
PINELLAS PARK The city of Pinellas Park had to rethink con-
struction plans for a new recreation center at Freedom Lake Park
when a bald eagle's nest was discovered in the area.
"We were all ready to go and everything and somebody said, 'Oh,
is that eagles up there on top of that cell tower?' And as most peo-
ple know, you cannot disturb an eagle's nest," Pinellas Park Mayor
Bill Mischler explained. "So, who stays up there? The eagles. Who
moves? We do."
Council members gave preliminary approval to a new site, within
Youth Park at 4100 66th Ave., during their meeting Oct. 14. The
3,000-square-foot building now will sit just east of baseball field
No. 1, between the fields and the existing parking lot.
The two nesting bald eagles in Freedom Lake Park, at 9900 46th
St. N., took over an abandoned osprey nest in a cell tower adjacent
to the old Freedom Lake Center, just as the city was preparing to
demolish it. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion sent a biologist to confirm the nest in the second week of
September, said Deborah Rose, Pinellas Park library and recreation
Although bald eagles were taken off the national Endangered
Species Act in 2007, they continue to be protected by federal law.
State law requires all construction within 660 feet of a discovered
bald eagle's nest to immediately cease.
"We are very fortunate to have property available at Youth Park. I
think it's a better location for the people, our residents on the
south end of our city," Mischler said. "Thank you, eagles."
In fact, the city had considered a recreation center at Youth Park
before, but plans were put on hold pending funding from Pinellas
County, according to city documents.
The plans for the physical building at the Youth Park haven't
changed from the original design. It was the department's goal to
find a site that could accommodate the same building footprint
and not further delay construction, Rose said.
The new center will have a large multipurpose room, limited
kitchen facilities, restrooms and storage. Unlike the Broderick or
Forbes recreation centers, the smaller Youth Park center will serve
one purpose at a time, rather than remain open to the public's use
year round, Rose explained to the Pinellas Park Recreation Board
last month. It will be fully staffed during the summer for a youth
camp and could potentially host recreational leagues, outside
sports clinics and tournaments, or community groups.
Originally, construction on the recreation center at Freedom
Lake Park was scheduled for completion in time for summer activi-
ties in 2011. Rose said the department was working to meet that
goal, despite the location change.
"So far we remain on schedule," she said. "We're hoping to have
County OKs plans for college expansion
By SUZETTE PORTER
County Commissioners approved
a compromise plan Oct. 12, al-
lowing Clearwater Christian Col-
lege to proceed with its expansion
The commissioners, acting as
the Countywide Planning Author-
ity, agreed to the proposal ap-
proved by the Pinellas Planning
Council that includes placing a
preservation designation on exist-
ing wetlands owned by the col-
According to Brian Smith, di-
rector of the county's planning
department, the wetlands were
inappropriately designated as
residential or commercial on the
Countywide Future Land Use
The compromise proposal also
called for amending an area along
Bayshore Boulevard from resi-
dential low to recreation/open
An additional component of the
plan allows about 4.3 acres of
wetlands and a water feature
rimmed by mangroves be amend-
ed from preservation, residential
low, recreation/open space and
water to institutional, which will
allow the college to proceed with
the permitting process and seek
authorization to fill the water
body and wetlands to expand the
On Sept. 15, the PPC recom-
mended denial of the initial plan
submitted by the college and rec-
ommended the alternative pro-
posal approved by the county on
Oct. 12. The compromise plan
means the college will have to
forgo plans to build ball fields in
wetlands on the north side. CCC
will be able to proceed with plans
to build a parking lot and a
chapel/fine arts building on the
west on land that includes wet-
lands and vacant upland areas.
The wetlands north of the cam-
pus, currently designated as in-
stitutional, would be given the
designation of preservation due to
the property's "environmental
sensitivity" and proximity to a
bald eagle's nest.
The compromise plan reduces
the wetlands area from 7.8 acres
to 4.5 acres if the plan is ap-
proved by other regulatory agen-
The college proposes to offset
the loss of wetlands through a
mitigation plan that would up-
grade the college's stormwater fa-
cilities and restore mangrove
Environmentalists and neigh-
bors protested the change and
asked the commissioners to deny
'There are very few wetlands
left and we should protect them,"
said J.S. Hood.
He said wetlands were prefer-
able to more asphalt. Others
agreed and suggested the college
build a parking garage instead of
an asphalt lot.
everything up and ready to go for summer camp next year."
The current recreation center in Freedom Lake Park that the city
meant to replace can't be demolished until after nesting season,
which runs until May 15.
"Of course, nesting season is really over when the eagles and any
fledglings are out of the nest, so we'll be monitoring," Rose said.
While the construction plans haven't changed, the scheduled
programming to take place in the new recreation center will have to
be altered. The Freedom Lake Park building, a former home to the
Disabled American Veterans, hosted a summer camp for older chil-
dren that emphasized outdoors activities, Rose said.
"Because it's a different site, the focus will change completely,
from a nature camp to sports," she said.
Instead, the nature camp activities will be incorporated into the
summer camps at Forbes Recreation Center. But even with the
change, the site for the new recreation center still fits, Rose added
"I think the Youth Park site will work extremely well, because
there are already so many facilities there," she said.
As for the bald eagles, it could be said that the national birds
lend even more credibility to the theme of Freedom Lake Park,
which is the site for the city's Korean War Memorial and annual
Memorial Day events.
"Certainly it is consistent with the park's creation and purposes
that they're honoring there," Rose said.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA
I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it.
We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to
make things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?
Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.Instead, they asked
us if we could serve food to the workers,engineers, scientists, and local residents they
had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only
ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have
kept businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.
Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open
six days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good
time to come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been
tough, we are still cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places
ready to welcome you when you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward
to seeing you.

October feeding fest
continues this week
Unlike last year, this year Octo-
ber is definitely living up to its
billing. Resident as well as migra-
tory fish species are firing on all
cylinders. Last week's full moon
brought swift moving tides and
some outstanding fishing.
Targeting drop-offs on the edges
of the shallow grass flats around
the many small spoil islands along
the Intracoastal Waterway put us
into position to catch a wide vari-
ety of fish. Spanish mackerel,
bluefish, trout, lady fish and the
occasional redfish could all be
caught in the same spot. We were
live chumming with pilchards and
had fish busting all around the
boat. Those wanting to cast artifi-
cial lures should probe these spoil
islands with a top-water plug dur-
ing the first couple of hours in the
morning. Then switch to either a
white jig or a sinking twitch bait.
East winds made for perfect
conditions along our beaches and
near-shore waters. Fish feeding
activity could easily be spotted
upon exiting the pass. Pelicans
and terns hover and dive into
massive pods of bait. Under all
,ll, i i. I
those birds is an all-out feeding
frenzy consisting of Spanish
mackerel and lady fish eating the
bait-fish and kingfish and spinner
sharks eating the Spanish mack-
erel and ladyfish, no doubt an im-
Anchoring and live chumming
is by far the best way to keep you
busy for hours on end. However,
trolling small silver or gold spoons
behind a planer will catch fish,
Capturing enough pilchards for
a day's fishing has been spotty at
best, but the rewards of a full
bait-well are well worth the effort.
Target bridge shadow lines at
night, and after the sun is up look
for pods of pilchards to move to

Sales down for residential units
Overall residential unit sales dropped significantly in September
and were down 18.5 percent in Pinellas County compared to
September 2009, according to the Pinellas Realtor Organization.
Single-family home sales fell 22.9 percent and condo sales
dipped 11.2 percent. The market is still taking a breather after all
the sales related to the tax credit.
All residential listings were up slightly about 3 percent. Single-
family listing increased by 6 percent and condo listings dropped
again by 3 percent when compared to this time of last year.
'The bright spot this month are the pending contracts they
rose by 10.6 percent over the September 2009 level. This is the
third month of steady growth in this status. Tempering that news
there was a 5.2 percent growth in contracts written for single-fam-
ily homes and a leap of 20.4 percent for condos, again both due to
three months of steady growth after the tax credit fall-off," an as-
sociation news release said.

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas recently dedicated its 200th house
That's a remarkable achievement for an organization that was estab-
lished only 25 years ago.
Habitat for Humanity International, formed in 1976, builds houses
for families who meet certain qualifications, including having decent
credit, having financial needs, living in substandard housing, are will-
ing to take homeowner education classes and donating a required
number of volunteer hours or "sweat equity hours" to building houses,
either for themselves or others.
Besides helping to build their own house, homeowner candidates at-
tend classes, such as financial planning and home maintenance, that
helps them to be independent and successful.
Habitat has built more than 350,000 houses around the world, pro-
viding more than 1.75 million people in 3,000 communities with safe
Locally, the organization's efforts are gaining momentum. It took 18
years for Habitat to build its first 100 houses. The next 100 were built
in only seven years.
In addition to building houses, the Pinellas organization has funded
179 homes overseas. To find out about volunteer opportunities, go to
The completion of the 200th home is a tribute to everybody affiliated
with the organization, especially the volunteers who devote time, ener-
gy and sweat to helping make lives better.
Kudos to the Pinellas County Health Department for receiving $4.85
million to spend on new policies to reduce obesity and smoking, in-
crease physical activity and improve nutrition.
The county is one of 10 communities in eight states receiving a
share of $31 million in federal health funds to develop policy changes
in all sectors of the community.
The grant money is part of the federal government's plan to prevent
and control chronic diseases by taking local action.
"It's all about setting new policies and providing healthy alternatives
to people," said Maggie Hall, county health department spokeswoman.
Seven of 10 Americans die each year from problems caused by
chronic diseases, underscoring the need for local action. The health
department is showing that it gets the message and needs to convey it.
Jazz festival disappointing
I have lived in Clearwater for 25 years. I have attended the annual
jazz festival every year since I moved here. In the past I considered the
jazz festivals one of the highlights for the entire year. I enjoy music of
all kinds, and I enjoy going to shows.
Recently I have noticed that the jazz festival isn't as good as it was in
the past. For one thing they started charging people for reserved seat-
ing in the front of the park up by the stage. I preferred the free seating
for everyone that they had in the past. I'm sure they started charging
people so that they could create revenue to attract bigger, more well-
known artists. That is fine but this past year it didn't seem to help be-
cause most of the artists were not that well-known to the general
public, with the exception of Thursday night which included Little Feat
and Dr. John.
The point that I am making is that the artists don't seem to be inter-
ested in coming to this event in recent years. My opinion is that the
crowd of people are all sitting down and not really enjoying the show
as much as in the past. The artists on the stage are working so hard to
entertain the people. As I looked around at the crowd everyone looks
as if they are half asleep. At the end of a song you can hear the artist
on the stage saying things like "is everyone having a good time?" The
response is a few people quietly clapping their hands. That seems to
me to be a rude response to the artists.
My husband and I were standing behind the fence which separated
the paid seating from the nonpaid seating. We were only standing
there for about five minutes. A man actually got up out of his chair be-
hind us, and walked up to me and said to me "can you move you are
in my way." I can't understand how I could be in his way when there
was probably 2,000 people there that night. Why didn't he just stand
up out of his chair for a few minutes? I was so insulted that I just said
to my husband "let's just go home." We go to a lot of shows here and in
other towns and this kind of thing only happens with the Clearwater
I have decided to not go to the Clearwater jazz festival from now on.
It's just not any fun anymore.
Commissioners should be watchdogs
The mayor recently tried to make it clear that Largo city employees
work for the city manager, not the City Commission. Unfortunately,
while this is technically correct (the city manager "manages" city em-
ployees), she took it to the extreme by attempting to limit the duly
elected commissioners from acting as the city's watchdogs for which
we, the voters, voted them in to do. Yes, the commission is a policy
making body; however, that is only one function they perform. As a
concerned voter, I want the commissioners asking questions, digging
into expenditures and holding city staff responsible for their actions.
Trying to limit individual commissioners' access to city staff is
ridiculous and may actually border on malfeasance of duty. Attempt-
ing to shield this preposterous mayoral ruling by suggesting that all
questions or concerns must first be "approved" by the commission, as
a body, is a blatant attempt to control access to city leadership and is
designed to prevent those commissioners that want accountability
from obtaining needed information. Question to the mayor -just how
do you expect the commissioner to decide on important issues without
some "digging" into facts? Oh I see, they are to simply take the infor-
mation fed to them by you and the city manager without question.
Wrong! We need independent minded commissioners that are willing
to question, dig and not just take someone's word.
This is just another example why voters are fed up with the current
system and is systematic of longtime incumbents clinging to power in
any way they can. Time to exercise our right and, as voters, to fire
Praise for school recycling
As a resident of Seminole since 2007, I have been researching vari-
ous accomplishments in the area of recycling in Pinellas County.
I would like to congratulate the following Pinellas County teacher
and school district finalists in the second annual awards program of
the Governor's Serve to Preserve: Green Schools Awards
They are: Susan Carney, kindergarten teacher, Ozona Elementary
School, Palm Harbor; Pinellas Middle School, Palm Harbor Middle
School and Wayne Hefty and staff of Pinellas County Schools for their
Green and Healthy Schools certification program.
The work various educators, staff and students are doing within
Pinellas County Schools is magnificent and has now earned the dis-
tinct, well deserved recognition of the governor of Florida. Congratula-

The sounds of the human voice
If Sarah Pali's speaking voice was as at-
tractive as her face and figure, she'd be a
formidable political candidate. She already is,
to many people, for whom Pali's nasal, grat-
ing style of orating doesn't matter much. In
fact, in a world where incessant chatter, rack-
ets and hubbub have become as normal as
the sunrise, maybe the more abrasive a
speaker's voice is the more enduring impres-
sion he/she will make on the public con-
For every $100 an average American
spends on physical appearance clothing,
hair style, posture, complexion, makeup,
weight I'd guess that less than $1 is invest-
ed in developing and improving the way our
voices and speech patterns sound. How we
speak and sound can have an enormous im-
pact. But when is the last time you met some-
one who's taking speech or voice lessons?
Professional athletes, by and large, are in-
telligent men and women, many of them with
college educations behind them. Conversing
with them in a quiet setting, you could easily
tell how bright they are. But that is seldom
true when the athlete is being interviewed
after a game. For reasons unknown, the male
athletes tend to lapse into a dull monotone,
devoid of expressiveness. Maybe it's just be-
cause they're tired. Whatever the cause, it's
easy for a viewer or listener to conclude that
the player is a physically gifted dolt.
Many other people appear bright until you
hear them speak. Examples of this are two TV
talk shows 'The View" and 'The Talk" fea-
turing groups of attractive, well-dressed
women. Individually, these women's utter-
ances would probably be worth listening to.
But put the women together and you have a
gathering of chattering magpies, each one try-
ing to get her point across, through the thick-
et of gabble.
Shakespeare wrote, "Her voice was ever
soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in
women." And why not in men, as well? That's
easy: because we've got to sound tough and
manly. Male animals of many species are
noted for their roaring, their chest-thumping,
by which they warn other males, 'Watch out
for me! And leave my women alone!" Excep-
tions to that generalization are many. I think
of movie actor Clint Eastwood. He has be-
come rich and successful by portraying sub-
dued, soft-spoken men who invited bombastic
bullies to "Make my day" and then left them
gurgling their own blood in the dust.
A person's voice is the product of vocal
cords, sinuses, the nose, lips, tongue and
breathing. How those elements interact will
pretty much determine how we sound to oth-
ers. The results can be hard to predict.
Case in point is the singer Barbra
Streisand. To my ears, her speaking voice
sounds like a fire alarm in a Bronx canning
factory. But her singing is remarkable. Years
ago she considered having minor throat sur-
Her doctors told her the surgery might irre-
trievably wreck her voice; so she declined.
You shouldn't tinker with excellence.
Actress Fran Drescher took one of the most
nasal whines in show business history and
turned it into a money-making trade mark.
Putting the 'care' in health care
I have the world's greatest doctor.
Not only is she a wonderful physician, she
is the first female primary care physician I've
had, for any length of time. I've learned that
there can be a big difference in the style of
care and comfort level achieved when you are
a woman and so is your doctor.
Undoubtedly, our opinions of doctors go
back to our earliest experiences. Ever since
my mother took my brothers and me kicking
and screaming to see our pediatrician, I've
been no big fan of going to the doctor's office.
I'm sure I have plenty of company on that
one. Even all these many years later I can still
recall the smell of that sterile downtown office
building as we rode up the elevator, and the
fear it evoked. Usually when we went to see
Dr. C, it meant we were going to get dreaded
shots. I don't care what they promised; shots
were never worth a lollipop or getting an ice
cream cone later. I recall one time when my
brother locked himself in the bathroom in the
doctor's office. I don't think he got a lollipop.
Not that Dr. C was a bad guy, but I never felt
comforted by his care.
Jump ahead several decades, and in search
of a physician in this area, a good friend rec-
ommended hers to me. Even though her
Dunedin office is quite a haul from my home,
What do you think?
it's worth the trouble. I wish everyone could
feel really good about their physician some-
one who sometimes has to give us bad news,
but seems genuinely pleased to give us good
news. Someone who dispenses compassion
and undivided attention can be a game-
What's even better, I can communicate
with my physician via e-mail for relatively
minor conditions and she is in the shocking
habit of responding really fast. Imagine that?
A few weeks ago I was attacked by poison ivy
while working in my yard and when I was cer-
tain I was going to itch myself into insanity,
she promptly phoned in a prescription to my
pharmacy and advised me to keep cool, since
heat can exacerbate the evil condition. No
hassle involved. What a relief.
I suspect medical schools attempt to teach
students effective bedside manners, but I am
certain from past experience that if it doesn't

come naturally, forget about it.
Just last week I visited my physician for a
physical and I was amazed at how much time
she was willing to spend listening and advis-
ing. My blood work revealed that for the first
time in my life, I have high cholesterol. After
painstakingly explaining all of the numbers
and letters that didn't mean diddly-squat to
me, she presented very workable options that
included the words, "If these numbers were
mine ..." I appreciate that kind of personal
During the course of my appointment, I
learned things about her family. Wow, you
mean my doctor is a real person who has ex-
perienced loss, a family member's health cri-
sis, and all that stuff, too? The fact that a
physician is willing to share part of her own
life humanizes that person in the white coat
who knocks on the door and enters the room
when we feel most vulnerable, sitting there
with sweaty palms, wearing nothing but
So, while going to the doctor will never be

diences ignore the way she spoke. Another
example of that ability was world-famous
cook Julia Child. She spoke in a screaming
whoop that, by rights, should have alienated
every listener within three blocks. Instead,
her raucous, ebullient enthusiasm neutral-
ized how she sounded.
Can a person's voice change the world? Ab-
solutely. Prime example: Adolf Hitler. He was
a small, nondescript, unremarkable man
until you gave him a podium and a crowd.
Then his piercing, almost frantic speaking
voice took over, exhorting his listeners to
bur, kill and march toward glory. The rest,
as they say, is history.
Possibly the most influential newsman of
all time was Walter Cronkite, partly because
of his balanced, honest presentation of the
news, but also because of how he sounded.
His voice was deep, reassuring, easy to listen
to. His enunciation was not regional, unless
you count Middle America as a distinct re-
gion. Cronkite's words rolled out with author-
ity, but were coated with a beneficence that
made you think of your favorite uncle, even if
you didn't have one. Talk about perfumed
tonsils Walter had them.
Is it possible for a presenter's voice and
style of speaking to be too gentle, too soft? I
think here of Diane Sawyer, anchorwoman for
the ABC Nightly News. Her track record as a
journalist is outstanding. To me, her voice is
as easy to listen to as that of any woman I
can name. Still, at times I wish her speech
had a higher degree of punch or hardness, es-
pecially when she's announcing a news story
with dramatic, shocking or frightening as-
pects to it.

Walk for hydrocephalus planned
LARGO The 6th annual family fun day and walk for hydro-

tral Park, 101 Central Park Drive.
The event benefits HUGS of Florida Inc., a nonprofit group support-
ing families who are affected by hydrocephalus.
The term hydrocephalus, commonly known as "water on the brain,"
is derived from the Greek words "hydro" meaning water and
cephaluss" meaning head. As its name implies, it is a condition in
which the primary characteristic is excessive accumulation of cere-
brospinal fluid in the skull. The excessive accumulation of the fluid re-
sults in an abnormal dilation of the spaces in the brain called
ventricles. This dilation causes potentially harmful pressure on the tis-
sues of the brain. Hydrocephalus affects a wide range of people from
infants and older children to young, middle-aged and older adults.

Club connects snow lovers with the slopes
By ALEXANDRA CALDWELL
CLEARWATER Even Florida's warm climate can't deter avid ski
lovers. There are at least 17 ski clubs in Florida, including the Snow
Sharks Clearwater/St. Petersburg Ski and Sports Club.
Holly Wagner of Hernando Beach was one of the club's first mem-
bers back when it was formed in 1983 and is now trip coordinator in
the group. A bunch of members of a dive club, the Sea Bunnies which
is based out of Clearwater, decided they wanted to go skiing, and out
of that, the club was formed, she said. Now the group has about 250
"I always tell people I joined the club so I can ski with my 44 best
friends," Wagner said. "And I've probably traveled with the same
group of people for 20 years at least."
The club members often find that people are surprised that there
are so many ski clubs in Florida, but it's a bigger deal here because
people can't just jump in the car and go on a spontaneous ski trip on
the weekends like they can up north, said Louis Scalafani of Largo,
the club's marketing coordinator. The club has gatherings, parties
and other sporting events throughout the year, but ultimately it is a
year-long anticipation of that one-week ski trip, he said.
"It's a big event when they (ski-lovers) go, so they typically want to
go to nicer places, they want to go with people who have like-inter-
ests," Scalafani said. "One of the things is if you and your spouse
want to go skiing, it's rare that both people are at the same ability, so
one holds one back or inadvertently pushes the other too far. So when
you go in a group, you can have a group of people who want to ski
green, they go together. And others who want to ski blacks all go to-
The club generally plans higher-end trips, staying at nice hotels or
condos that are conveniently close to the slopes. Because they travel
as a group, however, they get discounted group rates on many of the
expenses, such as hotel rooms, lift tickets, rentals, and transportation
is reasonable, as they split the cost of a bus, Scalafani said. People
who are single can also benefit because not only do they not have to go
and ski alone, they can be set up with a roommate, said Helen Knox of
Palm Harbor, vice president of the club.
This season the club has planned five ski trips, including one Euro-
pean trip. The scheduled trips are to Breckenridge, Colo. in January;
Vail, Colo. in February; Whitefish, Mont. in February; Kitzbuhel, Aus-
tria in February and March; and to Steamboat Springs, Colo. over
spring break in March and April.
The club always includes one European ski trip each year and in-
cludes an optional pre-trip, which is a four-night stay in another Euro-
pean city where people get to have a more general European vacation.
This year, the group is traveling from Munich, Germany to Zell-Am-
Ziller, Austria for the pre-trip. Often on these trips, not everyone who
goes are skiers, Knox said. Sometimes one or two people in a family
skis, but they bring the rest of the family as a special vacation, and
they spend the day shopping or sightseeing or doing other activities.
Although each trip is different, there are some basic things that peo-
ple can expect of the trips when they sign up. There is always a pre-
trip party where everyone can get aquatinted with who they will be
traveling with as well as pick up all the information they will need, in-
cluding airline tickets, trail maps, information on the mountain, what
events and parties there will be, the full itinerary and schedule and
other information, Wagner said. On the day the trip begins, the trip
leader greets people at the airport to make sure they get through the
baggage and check-in areas, and the trip co-leader meets people at the
gate, she said. The goal is always to find a direct flight, but sometimes

it is necessary to have a layover, she said.
When the group arrives at the final destination,
they all climb onto a bus that will take them to the
mountain or to the lodging. If they are staying in
condos with kitchens, they will first stop at the gro-
cery store so people can buy supplies for the week,
Knox said. Once at the mountain, there is a greet-
ing party, get their rentals at group rates, and make
skiing plans for the next day, Wagner said. Some-
times people choose to ski only with their smaller
group of friends or family, but the group always sets
up a plan for people to meet and ski together if they
so choose, so no one has to ski alone if they don't
Mid-week there is a group happy hour, and there
is always a complimentary group dinner towards
the end of the trip, Wagner said. About a month
after the trip, there is a reunion party where people
share pictures and stories, she said.
"When I first joined the club, I thought, this is
just great," Wagner said. "I just give them my
money, they hand me my tickets, they tell me when
to show up, they tell me where to get off, they tell
me when to come back, and they tell me when to go
home. Everything is planned for you, and there are
a few parties, too."
Scalafani said the club can offer a comfort level
for people who may otherwise not go on such trips -
especially the European trips.
"It's one thing to go to Colorado with your family
or by yourself, but when you go to another country,
I think there's a comfort level that just feels better
when you're traveling with 20 or 30 other people
who speak the same language, understand the
same thing," Scalafani said.
Wagner said that has been the case for her, plus
the club has helped her see the world. She doubts
that she would have traveled to Europe so many
times had it not been for the club. It also made it
much more affordable because of all the group
rates, she said. She said the same idea can even be
true for the continental trips.
There are still spots available for this year's trips.
The economy has made it harder these past few
years to fill the trips, but they still remain popular,
The rest of the year, the club holds monthly activ-
ities, from kayaking, biking and camping to scallop-
ing, picnics and parties.
The club meets on the second Tuesday of the
month September through May at 7 p.m. at the
Thirsty Marlin, 351 West Bay Drive, Largo. New-
comers are always welcome.

Koutsogiannakis, Anders Ahlbom and Hans Alfred-
Director: Daniel Alfredson
'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" is the
third and final film adaptation of the bestselling Mil-
lennium trilogy written by the late Swedish author,
In the last installment, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi
Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to
her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city
hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways
than one: If and when she recovers, she'll be taken
back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders.
With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael
Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have
to prove her innocence, but also identify and de-
nounce those in authority who have allowed the vul-
nerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence.
And, on her own, she will plot revenge against the
man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt govern-
ment institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" brings
back Noomi Rapace in the starring role of the
pierced and tattooed genius computer hacker Lis-
beth Salander, Michael Nyqvist as Mikael Blomkvist,
the crusading journalist and publisher of the maga-
zine Millennium, and Lena Endre (Erika Berger) the

spends his vacation at the family estate of his wife
Francoise, despite her dreams of sailing the seven
seas on a cruise ship.
Paul cannot live without Francoise, but he hates
to travel. And this year, he has two excuses to stay
put: the unexpected arrival of his half-brother
Jacques, a rambling fellow with a drinking problem,
and a man on the run who shows up, demanding
Bellamy's protection. Paul ends up giving them
much of his time and efforts. His natural investiga-
tive curiosity finds much to contend with, while his
position as older brother will be faced with addition-

Director: Gareth Edwards
In 2009, NASA discovered the possibility of alien
life within our solar system.
A probe was launched to collect samples from
Europa, Jupiter's moon, but crashed upon re-entry
over Central America. Soon after, new life forms
began to appear there and half of Mexico was quar-
antined as an infected zone.
Today, the American and Mexican military still
struggle to contain "the creatures."
"Monsters" begins when American photojournal-
ist Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy) agrees to escort
shaken American tourist Sam Wynden (Whitney
Able) through the infected zone in Mexico to the
safety of the U.S. border.

Genealogists, historians very seldom deal with facts
OK, I admit, the statement
"proving your facts" is oxymoron-
ic; that is, facts are facts because
they are true ... that's what facts
are. Better titles would have been
"proving your assertions," or
"proving your hypotheses," but
those certainly aren't as catchy,
and what I wanted to do was
catch your attention for a discus-
sion of a very important topic -
In reality, we genealogists (and
historians in general) very seldom
deal with facts. Instead, we deal
with opinion, assertion, theory,
and hypothesis. Our "facts" are
seen through the lens of inaccu-
rate documents, misinterpreted
events, fading memory, and out-
right lies. That means that each
piece of data we have has to be
judged as to how accurate we can
consider it. Our job as genealo-
gists is to do research in order to
move the information we find fur-
ther away from "opinion" and
closer to "fact." Some would say
that we never reach the level of
"fact," that we simply move closer
to it as we get more and better
proof. We can see the sense of
this if we stop to consider that no
matter how much we believe a
piece of information we have
found, the discovery of a different
date or a different version of
events can throw our previous
belief into serious doubt. The
search for truth in genealogy and
history is never over ... our con-
clusions are tentative and await-
ing more information.
Once we collect data, on say
the birth date of great-grandfa-
ther Samuel, we should go about
the process of evaluating it to ar-
rive at some degree of confidence
that the date we have is correct.
Typically we will end up with dif-
ferent data from different
sources, and those sources may
disagree. The question is how do
we sort it all out and arrive at a
birth date for Samuel that, at
least temporarily, we will consider
During this evaluation process,
it would not be incorrect to think
of yourself as the member of a
jury that is being asked to deter-
mine the truth about a person's
guilt. In that setting you are pre-
sented with information that may
clash from sources of varying de-
grees of credibility, and it is your
job to come up with your best de-
termination of what the truth of
the matter is. Notice that the end
result, the verdict, is not absolute
truth. It is "truth beyond a rea-
sonable doubt." It is the best
opinion the jury can come up
with after considering the infor-
mation given to it. That is exactly
the situation we face as genealo-
gists when we come to a conclu-
sion about the information we
have found from our various
Consider this three-step
thought process: our task is to
consider the quality of our
sources, the accuracy of the in-
formation provided by those
sources, and the directness of the
evidence to arrive at what we will
Here is a brief explanation
each of those three elements.
Sources can be either original
sources or derivatives. Original
sources are those in their first
oral or recorded form. We can
think of them as "official records."
Derivative sources are essentially
copies of original sources, be they
abstracts, extracts, transcrip-
tions, or duplicates of one sort or
another. The preferred is the orig-
inal, of course. Derivatives are
subject to error in their creation
and increased difficulty in their
Each piece of information con-
tained in a source must be evalu-
ated for its accuracy, and we do
that by determining how close
the reporter of the information
was to the event being reported.
We can consider the information
to be "primary" if the reporter had
firsthand knowledge of the event
and the record was made reason-
ably close to the time of the
event. Anything else is considered
secondary information and car-
ries less weight in our evaluation.
Think of secondary information
as hearsay evidence, and primary
information as eye witness evi-
dence. Direct evidence is pre-
ferred, and secondary informa-
tion should be carefully examined
for the inaccuracies that second-
hand information or information
about events in the distant past
are subject to.
Evidence can be evaluated as
either direct or indirect. Direct ev-
idence answers the specific ques-
tion we are researching all by
itself, while indirect evidence
hints at the answer but requires
other supporting evidence to
reach a conclusion. Think of indi-
rect evidence as what in a trial we
call circumstantial evidence. A
good case can be made based on
but direct evidence is generally
So there are the three primary
elements of your evaluation:
sources (of various quality) pro-
vide information (of different ac-
curacy) from which we select
evidence for analysis. When we
consider all of the evidence, we
can then arrive at judgment as to
the degree of proof we have.
Of course, it is not as cut-and-
dried as the foregoing discussion
indicates. There is lots of analy-
sis, digging for information, put-
ting what you find in the context
of what you already know, nail
biting, and pencil throwing before
it is all done. As with all ge-
nealogical research, truth is the
goal, but it is not easily attained.
Elizabeth Shown Mills in her
book titled "Evidence Explained:
Citing History Sources from Arti-
facts to Cyberspace" (Genealogy
Publishing Company, Baltimore,
Md., 2007) has an excellent treat-
ment of the evidence evaluation
process. Many of the thoughts
presented here are reflections of
her excellent work.

has a class on the subject of eval-
uating your evidence. It is period-
