By TOM GERMOND


LARGO City commissioners have agreed to re-
structure their solid waste bulk container fees. Their
action is expected to result in an average decrease of
about $14.75 a month per customer.
Under the ordinance, every bulk container customer
will receive a rate decrease beginning Oct. 1, which is
the start of the next fiscal year. The rate decrease
ranges from $1 less per month to $163 per month.
The decrease brings the city's rate structure in line
with the market, said Charles Jordan, city manage-
ment analyst.
The rate change will result in an estimated 5.8 per-
cent reduction in container revenue.
'The (solid waste) fund has been seen to be able to


absorb that over the long-range financial plan," he
said.
Jordan said the city picks up some containers six
times per week, such as restaurants, construction fa-
cilities and industrial plants.
Commissioner Robert Murray commended city offi-
cials for their work on the ordinance.
"I think it's great that we can provide some relief
when we can," he said.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier agreed.
"Any business that gets a decrease will enjoy it," she
said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said she asked city officials to look
into the matter because at business visitations city of-
ficials received a lot of complaints about the city's
prices compared to private enterprises.


Largo woman forming


group to help soldiers


By TOM GERMOND
LARGO Soldiers stationed at Kandahar Air
Force base in Afghanistan want to play basket-
ball on a small piece of pavement that will be
their makeshift court.
What they need is a portable basketball hoop.
"They didn't even have a basketball," said
Cindy Scott, whose daughter is a Navy corps-
man stationed at the base.
Scott is trying to establish a local chapter of
the Soldiers' Angels, which was formed in 2003
to provide care packages, letters and other as-
sistance to U.S. troops.
The Largo woman has a jug at work and is
hoping that employees will contribute money to
the Angels. She works for Florida Blood Ser-
vices.


"I just need another body. I
need another body here
with me to help me forge
ahead."

- Cindy Scott

"Right now, we have been knocking out recre-
ational equipment," Scott said.
Soldiers Angels have sent baseball gloves,
bases and softballs to the soldiers. Scott has
raised $282 for equipment, but that will only go
so far. Her immediate goal is to raise $600 for
See GROUP, page 4A


"And they don't have a choice to go to a private serv-
ice," she said. "If they are in the city of Largo, they are
using our solid waste."
Jordan said that the amount of garbage that the city
is taking to the landfill has been substantially reduced.
"Our tonnage has been much lower in the last few
years due to the economy and some businesses are
going out of business ... a lot of it is also due to recy-
cling and being able to divert some of that waste to
other vendors," Jordan said.
City officials expect the tonnage to remain down for
the next few years. Landfill fees have remained consis-
tent at 37.50 per ton, Jordan said.
Commissioners approved the ordinance on first
reading. The second public hearing on the ordinance is
scheduled for Dec. 7.

City may pass ordinance


restricting dog tethering


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO City commissioners
are considering the adoption of
an ordinance that would limit the
amount of time that a dog can be
tethered.
Assistant City Attorney Mary
Hale said the draft ordinance pro-
vided is modeled after a Pinellas
County ordinance, which does
not apply to Largo.
One of the provisions stipu-
lates that a person may tether a
dog no longer than is necessary
that for the person to complete a
task that requires the dog to be
restrained for a reasonable peri-
od.
Commissioner Woody Brown
said the provision seems hard to
enforce and suggested that the
ordinance be "more definitive" as
to the period that's allowed.
Hale said the commission can
include a maximum allowable
time that a dog can be tethered.


Hale also said the ordinance
could stipulate that if a dog is
tethered while the person respon-
sible for it performs a temporary
task, the dog would have to be
within the eyesight of that per-
son. The city of Seminole's ordi-
nance has such a provision in its
ordinance.
'That's somewhat restrictive. I
did not include that out of the
box," Hale said.
Code enforcement officers have
not said there has been an ex-
treme problem with tethering in
the city, Hale said.
"The few instances that have
come up, my understanding is in
an effort to work in conjunction
with the Animal Services division,
there is something that needs to
be in place to give them a little bit
more teeth to what action we can
take to preclude and prohibit
people from doing this," Hale
said.

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Your Smile Shouldn't Have a Silver Lining
It isn't that I don't believe that silver lined clouds are beautiful. It
isn't even that I don't like silver. It's just that what people commonly
call silver fillings really aren't silver except in color.
These so-called silver fillings are an amalgam that contains all kinds
of metals, the main one being mercury. Over
time, these fillings wear allowing mercury to
enter the body. Usually, after ten years, they
are no longer sealing the teeth correctly and
may need to be replaced.
I don't use these restorations in my practice.
In fact, I haven't done an amalgam filling in
over twenty years and do not have this material
in my office. The good news is that the newest
fillings have been perfected to the point where
they outperform amalgam and best of all look like natural tooth. In
reality, the best filling is no filling. It is true that the health of your
mouth is directly related to the health of your whole body. When your
mouth is healthy, all of you can be healthier too!
Of course, there are times when teeth become damaged because of
injury or decay, or simply because of wear over the years. We take a
preventive approach to preserve and retain more natural teeth and their
underlying structure.
How do we do this? We start by encouraging very early dental care,
beginning before a child is even a year old and preserving teeth with
regular cleaning, fluoride treatment, proper home care and sealants.
But if you are a new adult patient, don't worry. We can help you keep
your teeth whole and healthy too. Our applied preventive measures
help keep anyone's teeth in their natural, strong condition.
We focus on regular cleaning and screenings so problems can be
caught well before they develop. And if there is a problem, our
restorative treatments are as non-invasive and natural as medically
possible. All of our restorations are custom created just for you using
natural, biocompatible materials for strength, health and beauty.
To find out more about how our advanced preventive and
restorative dentistry can help you, call us at 727.586.1955 or visit
aboutsmilesdental.com and read what our patients are saying about us.

cers are only going to step in
when it comes to taking an ani-
mal from a home, she said.
"There is nothing in between
that can be utilized to prohibit
some of this inhumane treatment
we do see," Hale said. "In Largo,
we don't see it very often from
what I understand."
Code enforcement officers are
good about progressive enforce-
ment, she said, adding that edu-
cation is an important part of the
process.
'They don't come right out of
the box and cite people when it's
not necessary," she said.
City officials will get advice
from code enforcement officers
about a possible time limit per-
taining to tethering and bring
back their recommendations to
the commission.
The proposed ordinance says
that U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture has found that the continu-
ous confinement of canines by
tethering is inhumane.
Tethering has been found to
contribute to aggressive behavior,
severe collar injuries and illness-
es among dogs.

the portable goal.
Through researching and networking, Scott said she saw that there
was a need that wasn't being filled.
"In the beginning I raised money to buy underwear, socks; I sent
about 200 pairs of Crocs shoes. Of course, food items," she said.
Besides the basketball hoop, the soldiers need items such as ther-
mal underwear, sweatshirts and sweat pants.
Her daughter has been in the military for more than 13 years. Scott
was hesitant to provide more details about her role in the service at


her daughter's request.
Hoping her chapter will grow, Scott is selling T-shirts for $18 to help
raise funds. She plans to continue with the efforts to help soldiers in-
definitely.
"I'm going to keep doing it even after she leaves," Scott said. "I found
a niche."
She said there is no other local chapter of Soldiers' Angels.
"I just need another body. I need another body here with me to help
me forge ahead," Scott said.
Soldiers' Angels was started by Patti Patton-Bader, a mother of two
American soldiers. While her son Brandon was stationed in Iraq from


2003 through 2004, he expressed concern that some soldiers in his
unit did not receive any mail or support from home. Patti contacted
friends and family members to see if they would support a soldier or
two. In a few months, Soldiers' Angels grew rapidly with thousands of
volunteers. Visit soldiersangels.org for more information.
To help organize a local Soldiers' Angels group, call Scott at 588-
1538.
Scott said her involvement with the Angels helps her deal with the
fact that her daughter serves in a country at war.
"I think this is why I plowed into this other avenue so I don't dwell
on it," she said.

Woman charged with child neglect
LARGO A Largo woman was charged with one count of child neg-
lect and three counts of possession of a controlled substance Nov. 11
after a 3-year-old child under her care wandered away.
The child was found by citizens in a parking lot near the southeast
comer of Ulmerton Road and Cumberland Drive, according to a report
from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
The child, dressed in play clothes and carrying her cat, was able to
tell law enforcement officials where she lived.
Largo police assisted in locating Tiffany E. Manes, 25, of 135 Ave. N.
She was found asleep in the residence and had reportedly been asleep
after taking several prescription drugs.
Responding officers and deputies found other drugs not prescribed to
the woman in her possession.
According to deputies, the child had to cross Ulmerton Road to be
found in the parking lot.
Manes was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at
$25,000.
The investigation continues.

Police chase tractor trailer driven recklessly
into St. Petersburg
PINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police officers chased down a tractor
trailer that was pushing other cars and driven recklessly on Park
Boulevard Nov. 6, eventually pulling the driver out of his cab when he
stopped at a red light in St. Petersburg.
Jimmie Joe Bruner, 39, a St. Petersburg truck driver for Con-way
was arrested for fleeing and eluding law enforcement, reckless driving
and driving under the influence.
"At the time of the arrest, he was showing signs of some kind of im-
pairment," department spokesman Brian Unmisig said.
Pinellas Park dispatch first received a call at 9:14 p.m. Nov. 6. for a

Police beat
large red tractor truck without a trailer pushing cars as it was driven
east on Park Boulevard. Police caught up with the truck in the 4500
block of the roadway. It was being followed by three or more cars with
their hazard lights on, Unmisig said.
Once it passed the intersection for U.S. 19, the truck appeared to be
pulling over and stopping, but then accelerated back into eastbound
traffic of Gandy Boulevard, driving only 30 mph. In the 3500 block of
the road, the truck pulled into the grass on the right side of the road,
near Robert's Mobile Home and RV Resort. It slowed, but did not stop.
Instead, the truck got on the southbound ramp to Interstate 275,
driving 55 mph. Police created a rolling roadblock with their cars be-
hind the truck to keep traffic from catching up with the swerving truck.
At 22nd Avenue North in St. Petersburg, police deployed stop sticks,
which the truck swerved to miss. The truck then got off at a downtown
exit, eventually getting onto Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street. The driv-
er stopped at the red light for Fifth Avenue South.
Police officers approached the truck and opened the driver's side
door, ordering Bruner out of the cab at gunpoint, Unmisig said. Bruner
refused to obey any commands, staring at the officers "as if we were not
speaking to him," the police report stated.
Bruner was forcibly removed from his cab. The truck then rolled
backwards, into a police vehicle, which carried a relative of one of the
officers on a ridealong. The vehicle sustained damage but no one was
injured.
Bruner's eyes were glassy, his pupils constricted and his speech
slurred. He asked the officers what he had done, Unmisig said. He
failed sobriety tests, but a breathalyzer test proved negative for alcohol.
He submitted a urine sample to be tested for other drugs, but refused
to answer officers' questions.
St. Petersburg police dispatch also received calls at around 1 p.m.
that same day about a truck driver that was driving recklessly. The
driver, described as a white male, was asking people for crack, accord-
ing to the police report.

Racing on 66th Street
PINELLAS PARK At around 1:40 a.m. Nov. 6, a Pinellas Park
police officer saw multiple vehicles weaving in and out of traffic and
racing an estimated 80 mph on 66th Street
Officer Chris Piccione stopped a 1995 green Honda for driving 78
mph on a road with the posted speed of 40 mph. The driver, Tan
Thanh Nguyen, 19, of St. Petersburg told Piccone that he didn't
have a drivers license with him.
He was cited for racing on the roadway and arrested for the ex-
isting warrant, as well as driving with knowledge of an invalid li-
cense.

Public's help needed to identify
robbery suspect
BELLEAIR BLUFFS Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies are seek-
ing the public's help to identity a man wanted in connection with an
armed robbery at the Northern Trust Bank, 525 Indian Rocks Road.
According to the sheriffs report, the suspect entered the bank
just before 4 p.m. Nov. 15 and demanded $4,000. He then walked
toward a teller, jumped over the counter, opened the cash drawer,
before taking an undisclosed amount of cash and fleeing the scene.
The Sheriffs Office Canine Unit responded but was unsuccessful
in tracking the suspect.
The suspect is described as a male about 5 feet 10 inches to 6
feet tall, weighing about 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a
gray hooded coat, a Halloween mask possibly a skeleton mask,
blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. He was armed with a knife.
Detectives are asking that anyone who was in the area at the
time of the crime who may have seen anything; or any other per-
sons with information that may assist in this case to call Robbery-
Homicide Detective Jeff Capra at 582-6200 or to remain
anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.

City's water and sewer
rates increase
PINELLAS PARK In response
to the county's recently in-
creased water fees, the Pinellas
Park City Council approved an
overall water rate increase of
4.25 percent Oct. 28, a decision
that was met with outrage by
several citizens who protested
any increase to their utility bills.
"I'm objecting primarily to the
rate increase, not because of me,
but because of most of the resi-
dents of Pinellas Park. This is
becoming an undue burden on
many of our residents," home-
owner Dave Wentz said. "Our
utility bills in the last 10 years -
our water, sewer trash have
doubled. I don't think many of
our residents have had their in-
comes doubled."
Effective Nov. 1, the overall
rate increase amounts to an av-
erage increase of about 26 cents
per 1,000 gallons consumed per
month, depending on the brack-
et of consumption in which the
household or business falls, Util-
ity Billing Director Jimmy Walk-
er said. The sewer rate increased
from $7.16 to $7.46, amounting
to an increase of about 30 cents
per 1,000 gallons.
If the city does nothing, given
the wholesale water increases,
Pinellas Park will come up short
this fiscal year.
"With the proposed rate in-
crease, we're projecting a break
even," Assistant Finance Admin-
istrator Sonny Kotala explained
to the council. "Without the pro-
posed rate increase, we're esti-
mating a shortage of nearly a
million dollars."
The shortage would not only
force the city to tap into is funds
meant to be saved for emergency
repairs and expansions, but
could threaten its credit rating
for bonds it's currently paying
back.
Despite the reasoning for in-
creasing the rates, residents still
spoke strongly against the meas-
ure, arguing that they were al-
ready struggling to pay the
utility bills as they stood. Resi-
dent Joyce Cich said she was
very careful with her water, even
using 55-gallon rain barrels to
water her tropical garden by
hand.
"And yet, I'm paying more for
this water, and I'm living on a
fixed income. It's just unfair,"
she said. "In fact, the people in
my neighborhood are barely pay-
ing (their utility bills). You have
to look around and see what
these people are going though,
including myself, and it's just
getting to be too much."
Aside from the overall increas-
es, Cich's primary protest was
with the minimum rate the city
charges. Another resident also
complained that the minimum
rate discourages residents from
conserving water if they're al-
ready under that base amount of
water consumption.
Councilman Jerry Mullins
said the mayor was working with
city staff to decrease that mini-
mum rate.
"Hopefully, we'll come up with
something for you very soon," he
said.
The city's rate increase is in
direct response to Pinellas Coun-
ty's 3.5 percent increase to the
wholesale price of water and the
1.5 percent increase to the sewer
rate. However, the county, and
even Pinellas Park Mayor Bill
Mischler, blamed the increase on
another "bureaucracy" above
both governments: Tampa Bay
Water.
"Some things are out of our
control, and this is one of them,"
Mischler said.
Councilmen Rick Butler point-
ed out that Pinellas Park, one of
the larger municipalities in
Tampa Bay, has no seat on the
Tampa Bay Water board, which
includes representatives of Pinel-
las, Pasco, Hillsborough coun-
ties, as well as New Port Richey,
St. Petersburg and Tampa.
Still, Wentz, echoing the opin-
ions of others in the audience,
blamed the city for not fighting
back against the increases.
'The problem is not just the
increase here, but no one is
going back and objecting to the
increases," he said.
Councilwoman Sandra Brad-
bury said that the council mem-
bers themselves were in the
same boat as the residents
protesting the increases.
"We all live here in Pinellas
Park. We all get our water, just
like you guys, every day," she
said. "We do say something to
the county; we do voice our opin-
ion on the rates they're increas-
ing to us. We don't take it


without a fight."
The council argued that their
hands were tied, since increases
above them had already been
passed. In order to make up for
the estimated $971,388 the city
would be short if no rate in-
crease had been enacted, the
city could have used funds from
its unrestricted net assets,
which pays for emergency re-
pairs and expansions to the
city's utility infrastructure. That
account used to amount to $15
million at the end of 2000, but


now boasts $4.2 million.
'That balance has been greatly
reduced over the years. That's
primarily due to a declining
economy as well as a desire to
keep the rates as low as possible
for the citizens and the business
owners," Kotala said.
Taking out an additional mil-
lion from the fund would bring it
to $3.2 million, "a dangerously
low amount," Kotala said.
Decreasing that fund had an
additional consequence of bar-
ring the city from complying with
a 2003 water and sewer bond
rate agreement.
"If we don't comply and our
credit rating sharply declines,
the balance of $9.8 million that's
still owed on the bond issue
could be called to come payable
immediately," Kotala said.
The city also argued that
Pinellas Park fell right in the
middle of what other billing
agents in the county charged for
their water and sewer. The city's
rate of $54.24 for 3,000 gallons
of water per month is just above

the county's rate of $53.71, but
lower than similar rates in Tar-
pon Springs, Madeira Beach,
Dunedin, St. Petersburg, Largo
and Clearwater, to name a few.
Along with the rate increases
themselves, the ordinance ap-
proved last month also updated
other water-related service
charges to individual meters, the
most common of which would be
a water turn-on charge. Current-
ly the city charges $5, but in-
creased that fee to $25 and $35
if it's required after hours.
'This charge has not been vis-


ited or changed in many years,"
Walker said.
The city also will charge $10 if
residents or businesses request
their meter be reread, but only if
the first reading was deemed
correct.
A number of fees were enacted
for services the city has to per-
form to repair utility infrastruc-

ter's roads, water supply and other infrastructure.
The contracts, which had been thoroughly dis-
cussed at an earlier work session, were put on the
consent agenda and unanimously approved with-
out further discussion.
R.E. Purcell Construction, a Largo-based con-
tractor, received a $1,482,700 contract for the
milling and resurfacing of 6.75 miles of streets
which were the subject of citizens' complaints.
After inspection by the city's Public Services, Engi-
neering Department those streets were moved to
the top of the resurfacing list.
Countryside Boulevard between Belcher Road
and State Road 580 will be resurfaced with 1.5-
inch-thick asphalt, as will Hercules Avenue be-
tween Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Druid Road.
Several less busy streets will be resurfaced with
inch-thick asphalt. The contract calls for the work
to be completed within 90 days.
The City Council members reconfirmed a $1.2
million work order, awarded on Sept. 22, to Camp,
Dresser and McKee, Inc., for engineering, design-
ing and permitting services related to the construc-
tion of an expansion of Reverse Osmosis Plant 1 for
the city's Water Department. The project will be
funded by a 2009 Water and Sewer Bond issue.
'The goal of this item is to protect the city and
CDM with additional conditions in the contract
that the (original) work order did not capture," a
staff memo to the council said. 'The city of Clear-
water's Public Utilities Department is responsible
for owning, operating and maintaining the Reverse
Osmosis Plant 1."


In addition to its Reverse Osmosis Plant 1, the
city plans to build a second reverse osmosis plant
at its Water Treatment Plant 2, at 21133 U.S. 19.
The estimated cost of the facility is $30.5 million
with the Southwest Florida Water Management
District picking up half the tab. The plant, which
will be owned and operated by Clearwater and will
turn brackish water into drinking water, is expect-
ed to be operational by December 2015.
On Nov. 4, the council awarded a $3,445,449
contact to Reiss Engineering for the preliminary
evaluations, pilot testing, design, permitting and
bidding of the project. The project will include the
design and construction of brackish water well-
fields, the well heads that will provide raw water to
the plant, the mains that will transport it there and
an injection well into which concentrate from the
plant can be pumped.
Clearwater-based Volt Telecom was awarded a
$2,836,091 contract, and URS Corp. received a
$354,272 work order in connection with the con-
struction of the Glen Oaks Palmetto Reclaimed
Water Project.
'The goal of this and all other reclaimed water
projects is to reduce the amount of potable water
and groundwater being used for irrigation and
other nonpotable uses," a staff memo told the
council. "In addition, expansion of the Reclaimed
Water Distribution System in accordance with the
Reclaimed Water Master Plan brings the city of
Clearwater closer to achieving zero-discharge of ef-
fluent to Tampa Bay and adjacent surface waters."
Construction of the project is expected to take
480 days, ending by the end of May 2012. URS will
be the engineer of record, and Volt will be responsi-

Cumbey & Fair, Inc., received a $223,402 con-
tract to be the engineer of record on the Myrtle Av-

Improvements Project. The project entails removing
or abandoning in place 2,200 linear feet of deterio-
rating 36- to 48-inch storm pipe that runs between
houses and replacing it with 2,800 linear feet of
same-size pipe in the public right-of-way.
'The proposed alignment begins at the east side
of Myrtle Avenue on Eldridge Street eastward to
Vine Avenue, then eastward to Pennsylvania Av-
enue and terminating at Metto Street," according
to a staff memo. 'The replacement includes the
storm drain east of Vine Avenue on Eldridge Street
and east of Vine Avenue on Seminole Street."

Treasure Island considers
intersection upgrades
TREASURE ISLAND The first steps toward a
possible traffic signal or other alternative at the St.
James intersection was put in motion Nov. 2 dur-
ing a city workshop.
City commissioners decided to move forward on
a resolution to award a contract not to exceed
$25,167 to study different options for the project.
If approved by commissioners, the study will be
conducted by EC Driver/URS at the intersection
where 104th, 107th and 108th avenues converge.
A recent study by EC Driver/URS recommended
the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection
based on the satisfaction of four of eight warrant
conditions set forth by the Institute of Transporta-
tion Engineers Traffic Engineering Council.
'We're planning to go back to draw up alterna-
tives, come back to you and based on your input,
come back with a final recommendation," said
Domingo Noriega of EC Driver/URS.
Noriega said the study will address the following
alternatives to a possible traffic signal:
Left turn traffic restriction for all approaches.


Left turn traffic restriction for minor street ap-
proaches.
Rerouting of east turning traffic at the intersec-
tion of 108th and 107th to First Street East and
107th Avenue.
Conversion of either the St. James intersection
or First Street East and 107th Avenue into a
roundabout.
Reconfiguration of the St. James intersection
geometry to reduce the east (left) turn angle from
108th Avenue.
In spite of the fact that the intersection has been
the site of 40 accidents over the past three years,
commissioners questioned the need to spend the
money on the project.
"I'm opposed to this," said Commissioner Phil
Collins. "Spending $25,000 on an intersection that
doesn't have a history of accidents doesn't make
sense to me."
Public Works director Jim Murphy explained
that certain turns off 107th Avenue to adjacent
streets were problematic and the accidents statis-
tics backed it up.
"I have concerns," said Commissioner Gail Cald-
well. "I'm interested in making 108th (Avenue) one-
way. Is that a viable alternative?"
"It's something we would consider as an alterna-
tive," said Murphy.
Commissioner Carol Coward said she favored
holding off.
"I'm apprehensive about spending this money
now until we see what (the city's) Visionary Com-
mittee says," she said.
Meanwhile, Commissioner Alan Bildz said he fa-
vored spending the money for intersection up-
grades but not on a traffic signal.
City Manager Reid Silverboard explained that
there was definitely a need with four of eight war-
rant conditions met.
"You only need one of the warrants to need a
traffic signal," said Silverboard. "So there's definite-
ly a need at this intersection that needs to be ad-
dressed."

Commissioners get update on capital improvement projects


By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Public Works
and Transportation Director Pete
Yauch presented to Pinellas
County Commissioners Oct. 26
the fall update on Pinellas Coun-
ty's capital improvement projects
for fiscal years 2011-2016.
The commission requested
quarterly reports to help them
stay informed due to the shrink-
ing CIP budget. In addition, a
number of bids have been com-
ing in lower than original esti-
mates.
Yauch said the Keystone Road
project, from U.S. 19 to East
Lake Road would probably be
done early and at a reduced cost.
Construction on the project to
turn the two-lane road into a
four-lane with the ability for ex-
pansion to six lanes in the future
began in July and is expected to
take 33 months at a cost of
$31.6 million.


Work continues to find funding for the
demolition of the Friendship Trail Bridge,
which remains closed due to safety
issues.


Advertisement for bids for the
Bryan Dairy Road project went
out Oct. 15, Yauch said. He said
the project included a number of
safety improvements, including
expanding the road from four
lanes divided to six lanes divided
with sidewalks and bike lanes on
both sides.
The project area is from
Starkey Road to 72nd Street.
Bids should be received by Dec.
16. Construction is expected to
take 18 to 24 months at a cost of
$16 million. Partial funding is ex-
pected to come from state and
federal sources, totaling more
than $8.5 million.
The road project at 46th Av-


enue North, which includes im-
provements for a two- and three-
lane roadway, should be
complete by January. The cost is
$9.4 million. The addition of a
left turn lane on 54th Avenue
and 28th Street also should be
done by January. The project
began in February at a cost of
more than $1.6 million. About
$800,000 will be paid by grant
funding.
Work on intersection improve-
ments on McMullen Booth Road
began in October. Improvements
for the intersection at Drew
Street includes adding south-
bound right, northbound left and
eastbound left turn lanes as well


as restricting westbound through
traffic. A northbound right turn
lane also is being constructed on
Enterprise Road.
Construction of the intersec-
tion improvements, as well as
road resurfacing should be com-
plete by May. The total cost of
the project is more than $2.5
million, and 50 percent will be
paid through a grant from Flori-
da Department of Transporta-
tion.
Planned improvements to Park
Street and Starkey Road from Ty-
rone Boulevard to East Bay Drive
remain on hold due to budget
concerns. Milling and resurfacing
will be done as needed.
Three county bridges were in-
cluded in the update. Beckett
Bridge repairs are expected to
begin in May and should take
about nine months to complete
at a cost of $364,000. Officials
estimate that the bridge will need
to be replaced in about 10 years.


Repairs to the Dunedin Cause-
way Bridge were completed in
July. Yauch said the work was
done on time and on budget. The
cost was $1.64 million. The
bridge most likely will need to be
replaced after 2026.
Work continues to find fund-
ing for the demolition of the
Friendship Trail Bridge, which
remains closed due to safety is-
sues. Responsibility for the
bridge is shared by Pinellas and
Hillsborough counties.
Yauch said staff was consider-
ing two projects. One involves re-
moving the middle portion of the
bridge due to an ongoing prob-
lem of people cutting through the
fence to gain access to the bridge
for fishing.
"We're looking at a two-step
process," Yauch said. "Eventually
we'll demolish the whole thing."
Demolition is expected to cost
$13 million to be shared between
the two counties. Pinellas has


contributed $2 million, which is
leftover money from the bridge
repair fund. Another $4.5 million
is required to pay Pinellas Coun-
ty's share of the demolition cost
and has been added to the CIP
budget for 2013.
Yauch also covered stormwa-
ter and drainage projects, envi-
ronmental and parks projects
and governmental building proj-
ects, as well as enterprise proj-
ects and projects ongoing at the
St. Petersburg-Clearwater Air-
port.
One of the biggest ticket items
on the CIP is the public safety fa-
cilities and centralized communi-
cation center. Design work on
the project is expected to be com-
plete by September and con-
struction should begin in
October. Estimated construction
cost is $81.4 million.

county's CIP, visit www.pinellas

10 Excellence Award for providing outstanding serv-
ices to families and maintaining a commitment to
high standards of excellence.
Healthy Families Pinellas is a voluntary home vis-
iting program with a proven record of preventing
child abuse and neglect in 98 percent of the high-
risk families served in Florida. The program began
serving families in Pinellas County in 1992 and now
serves more than 2,300 local families and children
each year.
'The economic success of our state requires a
strong foundation of healthy, safe and productive
families," said Program Director Ray Hensley. "We
help families overcome a variety of serious chal-


lenges to grow into healthy families that can con-
tribute to their communities and provide their chil-
dren with the safe, stable and stimulating
experiences they need to achieve their full potential,
both in school and in life."
Parents enroll in Healthy Families Pinellas during
pregnancy or just after the birth of their child. Dur-
ing home visits, parents receive information on
healthy child development and learn parenting
skills. Parents also work toward specific goals they
set for themselves, such as continuing their educa-
tion and finding stable housing and employment.
Florida taxpayers pay more than $64,000 a year
to care for an abused or neglected child, while
Healthy Families prevents child abuse and neglect
for less than $1,700 a year per child.

A merry Christmas

Under the Oaks
By WAYNE AYERS
CLEARWATER Perfect weather and the opportunity to choose
handcrafted gifts for the holidays drew a sizable crowd to Coach-
man Park Nov. 14 for the 34th annual Christmas Under the Oaks
show. The visitors found a variety of arts and crafts, including
jewelry, ceramics, purses, home accessories, artwork, and holiday
items.
Event chairwoman Patty Brumley of the sponsoring Clearwater
Junior Woman's Club was making the rounds, surveying the 125-
plus vendors for their comments.
"Everyone seems to be very happy," Brumley said. "I haven't
heard a negative remark."
Doreen Van Heynegen of Mosaics by D told Brumley she was
pleased. 'The show was very well organized and has been very well
attended," she said. "I was very happy with the advertising."
It's all for a good cause, Brumley added. The money raised goes
to provide scholarships for women and for grants to local charita-
ble organizations. "Everything goes back to the community."

Volunteer gardener

Resident helps the city upkeep a key intersection in Pinellas Park


By JULIANA A. TORRES
PINELLAS PARK Despite the
sometimes heavy traffic on 49th
Street and Park Boulevard, Mary
MacKenzie still finds gardening
on the northeast comer of the in-
tersection relaxing.
"It's busy but it's rarely noisy,"
she said, explaining that drivers
stopped at the light often notice
her working. "I think they are en-
joying seeing someone out put-
tering around. I'm very happy
when I'm out there."
The self-proclaimed "city girl"
from Detroit started tending to
the green space under the flag
pole and city LED message board
last March, offering her services
free-of-charge to the city.
'This gives me to a chance to
really do my gardening," she
said. "I love it."
MacKenzie's condo in Pinellas
Park supports only a herb gar-
den. Volunteering for the city
lets her practice on much larger
plants. The tiny park, complete
with a few benches and a path-
way, currently features coleus,
mums, a healthy crop of liriope
and a row of marigolds, which


unfortunately haven't taken to
the area, MacKenzie said. She'll
probably replace them with
something in the holiday vein,
she added.
Usually, MacKenzie spends

Helping

hands
Outstanding volunteers
about three days a week in her
adopted roadside garden. If her
task consists of just weeding,
she may only stay a half hour.
New planting can take two or
three hours.
Just planting "a few flowers"
can make a huge difference, she
said.
The plants are not the only
thing thriving. Since she started
caring for the tiny space,
MacKenzie has witnessed busi-
nesses around her corner of
green springing and sprucing up
as well. A new Sweetbay super-
market recently opened across
the street, and several sur-
rounding businesses repainted


their buildings and repaved
their parking lots, improving the
look of the whole intersection,
she said.
MacKenzie has lived in Pinel-
las Park for the last six years
after moving from St. Petersburg.
The smaller-town atmosphere
has appealed to her, she said.
"I love Pinellas Park. You get
to meet people like your police
and mayor," she said
It was a happenstance meet-
ing of Pinellas Park Mayor Bill
Mischler, during his unofficial
morning office hours in the Mc-
Donalds in the city's Super Wal-
mart, that first got MacKenzie
involved in municipal landscap-
ing.
She expressed an interest in
volunteering, specifically in help-
ing out with some gardening
around the tower and flag pole,
Mischler recalled. He told her to
contact Parks Division employ-
ees, who proved more than will-
ing to let her help out.
"We're running mean and lean
because of the economy. We're
down quite a few employees,"
Mischler said. "It's a big help to
us."

The city provides MacKenzie
with the flowers and plants she
needs. MacKenzie contributes
the labor, whether that's weed-
ing or planting.
Still, the mayor said he ap-
preciates MacKenzie's weekly
upkeep of a central part of Park
Boulevard.
"First impressions are some-
times lasting impressions.
That's the center of our city,
right there, and very visible," he
said. "She's doing a good job."
MacKenzie, a semi-retired in-
surance adjuster, still travels to
work during major catastro-
phes like the recent flooding in
Tennessee. When she's not gar-
dening, she's an avid exerciser
and a photographer.
She also encouraged others
to volunteer in their communi-
ties.
"They would be more than
welcome," she said. "Nobody
thinks to ask."

CLEARWATER The students at St. Cecelia School recently
donned halos and were joined by parents in the gymnasium to
participate in a liturgical celebration of song, prayer and litanies to
honor All Saints and All Souls Day. They prayed for the souls of
their deceased loved ones and for the souls in purgatory.
Each second grade student gave a one-minute talk on the
virtues and sacrifices of their special saint, and the celebration
concluded with each student carrying a cross with a portrait or
name of loved ones who had died. The students then placed these
in a bucket of sand.

Role Model students go on college tour

The students were selected based on their academic perform-

ademic programs, admission requirements, scholarships/financial
aid, and extracurricular activities with the students. Students will

who meet with them on a regular basis.

VFW Post donates dictionaries to
local elementary
PINELLAS PARK The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4364 and
Ladies Auxiliary donated dictionaries to every third grader in
Pinellas Park Elementary School Oct. 21.
Members hand-delivered the dictionaries to the 109 students
and six teachers in the third grade. The donation was made
through the national Dictionary Project.
The dictionaries included sections on the U.S. Flag, the U.S.
Constitution, all 50 states and biographies of each American pres-
ident.
"These extra sections allowed us to promote Americanism, patri-
otism and love of country," stated Post 4364 Ladies Auxiliary Pres-
ident Mary Ellen King. "The children were all smiles when they
received the books. And they were very excited to be able to write
their own names in the books and take them home with them.
They were theirs to keep."
Along with the dictionaries, the Post & Auxiliary also donated
several bags of school supplies, collected by the members.

This novel gift includes a card and an actual dollar bill with a trade-

"Publix is an exemplary corporate citizen and 50-year benefactor of
Abilities," said Frank De Lucia, president of the Abilities Foundation, in
a recent press release. "Its longstanding and generous support has en-
abled us to help thousands of Floridians with disabilities obtain jobs
and affordable housing."
Santa Dollars cost $2.50 plus tax and are available only at Publix
Supermarkets throughout West Central Florida through the holidays.
Santa Dollars are the creative inspiration of Marketing Productions
Inc., a Palm Harbor company.
Since 1985, the company has partnered with retailers nationwide to
benefit nonprofit organizations. More than $25 million has been raised
to date.
The Abilities Foundation is a Clearwater-based, nonprofit that funds

EDITORIAL


It's much ado



about nothing
The Largo Cultural Center has been the subject of much critique
in recent weeks over the subsidies it receives from city government
and other issues.
The Cultural Center, which opened in 1996, has lived up to its
promise to Largo and the surrounding area as a charming venue for
theatrical and musical performances. Loyal patrons and the occa-
sional visitors to the center for years have enjoyed fine community
theater shows and entertainers at affordable prices.
Across the country, civic and cultural centers are heavily subsi-
dized by city funds. For the current fiscal year, the Largo Cultural
Center is earmarked to receive $335,000 from the city's general
fund. As several city commissioners have pointed out, that center's
cost of recovery stacks up well against comparable venues.
And yet, the subsidies to the Cultural Center became a campaign
issue in the election. Commissioner Curtis Holmes, too, has railed
against the subsidies.
Critics overlook the intangibles. Though it's hard to calculate the
economic value of the Cultural Center to the community, some pa-
trons who go to performances at the center spend money at local
restaurants and other businesses as part of their outing. Since the
complex is centrally located in Pinellas County, it can be easily
reached by residents of Largo and the surrounding area. Along
those lines, city officials are conducting a survey to determine the
usage of the Cultural Center and its economic value.
The Largo Golf Course is also under scrutiny because it receives
heavy subsidies from the city. But comparing the problems facing
the golf course with the subsidies the Cultural Center is receiving is
comparing apples to oranges. Unlike the golf course, the Largo Cul-
tural Center was never designed to be self-supporting through
users' charges.
The criticism also comes at a time when entertainment venues
are reeling from the economic downturn so it's encouraging that the
city's subsidies for the Cultural Center this year is expected to be
less than in many previous years. The city budget shows that the
attendance per show has remained steady and is expected to exceed
figures for the past three fiscal years.
The Cultural Center is served by numerous dedicated volunteers,
who contributed nearly 9,000 hours to its operations in the past fis-
cal year. Such a commitment shows how much the center is em-
braced and appreciated in the community.
Certainly, suggestions for improving the Cultural Center should
be encouraged. But it's understandable that the continuous crow-
ing about subsidies for the center is wearing thin with patrons and
residents who recognize the value of being able to enjoy a variety of
entertainment at low prices in their own community.
If they want drama, they'll go to a show.



LETTERS
Appreciates article
Editor:
I am writing to thank you and reporter Juliana A. Torres for the
article, "Food Pantries in need of donations" that appeared in the
Oct. 22 edition of the Pinellas Park Beacon. Volunteers from the
Good Samaritan Community Food Pantry were interviewed for the
article as well as volunteers for other local pantries.
I am pleased to tell you that our pantry has received both cash
and food donations in response to the article. I have also heard from
a representative of a local church that is planning to collect food for
us during the holidays.
As mentioned in the article, we did receive a truckload of food col-
lected by the Pinellas Park Thunderbirds youth football and cheer-
leading organization on October 25. A group of volunteers from our
organization sorted the food and restocked our shelves and stored
the overflow in our storage cabinets. We are very grateful for this do-
nation.
We are grateful for all donations to our pantry. Through October
2010, we have served over 1,250 adults and children. The need for
food assistance in our community continues to grow.

Happy 40th birthday, Seminole
Editor:
What a big and busy year it has been with celebrating "Golden
50th" at both the Seminole Library and at Blessed Sacrament
Church and now to celebrate the 40th of our beloved Seminole.
I have worked at and still am a member of the Friends of the Li-
brary and participated in the early Pow Wow festivities, too. In addi-
tion to being active in the church choir, both my husband and I
worked in fundraising to help build the new church. So, I've really
seen this city grow over these many years.
From the moment I first arrived in Seminole, back in January
1971 some 39 years ago, I knew I found my new home. It was in the
air, in the beautiful blue sky and clouds, and I could feel it in my
heart and soul. After leaving Michigan I could even feel it in my
bones. Before coming to Seminole, I had already checked out the
east coast and the rest of the Gulf coast of Florida and even Arizona,
too. No matter how far and wide I went none compared nor gave me
that same comfortable, inviting feeling of home like Seminole.
I want to thank all those who have made Seminole as great as it
is. Starting with our founding fathers and Mr. (Jesse) Johnson, for-
mer mayors (Holland) Mangum, Dottle Reeder and current mayor
(Jimmy) Johnson. Also, all councilors past and present, and last but
not least our city manager, Mr. (Frank) Edmunds. Thank you all for
making Seminole such a wonderful city and place to call home.
So, congratulations on your first 40 years and best wishes on your
continued success so that there will be many more years ahead for
our beloved Seminole.

City bids farewell to Ironman 70.3 like a true champion


By BEV DOLEZAL

CLEARWATER Clearwater Beach once again
delivered a picture perfect morning on Nov. 13
for the fifth and final year it will host the 70.3
Foster Grant Ironman World Championship.
Before the sun was up, more than 1,800 ath-
letes were ready to push their bodies to the limit
in a 70.3 mile competition which consisted of a
1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1
mile run. The athletes traveled to Clearwater
from around the world, bringing their friends
and families to enjoy the venue and fantastic
weather. Hundreds of volunteers assisted the
competitors before, during and after the event,
and made sure that the championship ran
smoothly. After five years of hosting this event,
Clearwater's Ironman 70.3 ran like a well-oiled
machine, rivaled only by the incredible dedica-
tion, focus and athleticism which was put to the
test by each of the qualifying competitors.
The Gulf of Mexico water temperature was a
"get your attention" 64 degrees at the start of the
race, but that didn't deter the 17 different waves
of swimmers who quickly turned the Gulf waters
into what seemed like a giant cauldron of boiling
water. With their different-colored swim caps
and strong arm freestyle strokes, the swimmers
headed straight out into the Gulf of Mexico, par-
allel to Pier 60 for half a mile, and then rounded
the end buoys for the return trip to Clearwater
Beach.
After 1.2 miles of swimming, the wetsuits were
ripped off and the athletes quickly transitioned
into bicyclists, grabbing their bikes and gear and
racing out of the Beachwalk area to ride 56
miles. About mid morning, the action around
Pier 60 was nothing short of breathtaking when
there were some cyclists leaving the area and
other cyclists returning from completing the


course. While dropping their bikes to transition
into runners, the frontrunners were returning to
start their second and final lap of the 13.1 mile
run simultaneously.
The action was everywhere you looked, with
the announcers trying to keep the crowd in-
formed of what was happening with the competi-
tors, intermittent music coming from
loudspeakers, friends and family cheering their
favorite athletes on in many different languages,
and noise makers and flagwavers adding to the
excitement.
Once again this year, Michael Raelert of Ger-
many took the top spot in the men's professional
category with a 3.41.19 time. Raelert is the first
man to successfully defend his title in the 70.3.
Filip Ospaly of the Czech Republic took the sec-
ond spot and American Timothy O'Donnell from
Boulder, Colo., came in third, less than 3 min-
utes behind winner Raelert.
In the women's professional division, last
year's winner Julie Dibens was ousted from her
title by Great Britain's Jody Swallow, who looked
strong throughout the competition, swimming
the 1.2 miles in 24 minutes and 20 seconds,
keeping her lead in the bike ride, and opening up
a 6-minute lead to finish in 4.06.28. Great
Britain's Leanda Cave took the second spot, and
Canadian Magali Tissayre gained third spot on
the podium.
Next year's Ironman 70.3 will be held just out-
side of Las Vegas, and will be a much tougher
venue for the athletes with steeper climbs
through the Lake Mead National recreational
area. Happily, for those who have thoroughly
enjoyed hosting such world class excitement,
Clearwater will not be left out in the cold next
year, as it was just recently announced that the
new 5150 Triathlon series will culminate in
Clearwater on Nov. 12, 2011.

I am very honored by your vote on November 2nd. Not only
because of our strong voter turn out at the polls, but in the
message that it sends: that people prefer our positive and
issue-oriented campaigning. The fact that so many people were
willing to say a good word about our work to their family,
friends, neighbors and co-workers made all the difference
inour successful people-to-people campaign.

Winter gag grouper migrations are now under way


Last week's cold front may have slowed fishing down for most
species, but for gag grouper it signified a shallow water migration
that takes place each fall when our water temperature drops into
the 60s. Depths of 20 feet or less can hold quality gags in the up-
coming weeks.
We targeted these shallow dwellings a few days before this last
front, when the water temperatures were in the upper 70s. Moving
from spot to spot and fishing with a combination of frozen sardines
and live pinfish did not produce any keeper gags. Flash forward to
a couple of days after the front and a water temperature now in the
upper 60s. Fishing the same spots, we had excellent action from
gag grouper ranging in size from 5 pounds to one fish weighing


over 15 pounds. This is no coin-
Fish Tales cidence. These big fish will hold
Capt. Tyson up on shallow ledges until
Wallerstein sometime after the first of the
year when they push farther
offshore in search of more mod-
erate water temperatures.
Target small ledges and areas of hard bottom for gags. Anchor-
ing and fishing with frozen sardines will create the activity neces-
sary to draw the active gag grouper to your location. Typically the
sardines will only produce grunts and undersized red grouper.
However, don't be surprised when a big gag grabs your bait. Once


you catch a gag or two, even if they're too small, drop down a big
pinfish, this should entice the bigger fish into biting. In these shal-
lower depths, the fish will fight you all the way to the surface and
often make a couple of runs back to the bottom, so backing off the
drag a bit once you have the fish up off the bottom will lessen your
chance at a pulled hook.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capttyson@hotmai.com. To
get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name,
when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail
it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL

Just a brush can cause an itch


Leaves of three, let them be.
That's an old saying I was taught
as a child who loved to explore the
outdoors.
What the plant of shiny three
leaves on a stem does is cause an
itchy rash when it comes in con-
tact with our skin poison ivy.
It can be found in all of the
states from Canada down to Mexi-
co.
Poison ivy grows along the
ground, up bushes and can grow
as a very thick-stemmed vine up
tree trunks. Years ago, I had to
call on a neighbor/farmer to bring
his tractor to pull a vine out of an
oak tree. The vine was as large as
a small tree. Unfortunately, 30
years later, I see the tree was re-
moved.
When clearing a plot that may
contain poison ivy, common sense
says not to bur the brush. If poi-
son ivy is burned and inhaled, the
smoke will coat the throat and
lungs, thus will restrict breathing.
Every part of the plant can cause


d Ruth Davies

problems for those who are aller-
gic; and not everyone is. I've even
been infected by my cat who
brushed against it and after pet-
ting him, I got the oil on my hands
followed by the rash.
The white seeds can be trans-
mitted by animals or birds or in
yard waste. Hopefully, our county
yard waste is heated enough to
kill the seeds.
Whenever I see leaves of three, I
study it carefully. Another com-
mon vine in our area is Virginia
creeper. When the stem is young
there are three leaves, as the plant
matures, there are five leaves that
looks like a hand. This plant does
not cause rashes.
The best way to eliminate poi-
son ivy plants is to have a friend
who is not allergic to it pull it out


or use a herbicide carefully and
thoroughly.
After a red rash appears on
skin, it may blister. My fear was
that the liquid in the blister would
cause more blisters and then
more blisters and I'd always be
itchy. The medicine cabinet al-
ways contained a bottle of
calamine lotion for us kids. Later
in life I found that if I was messing
with the plant, sudsy dish deter-
gent cut the plant's oil on my skin.
If I still got a rash, fresh aloe was
soothing and healing. If the entire
body is covered, oatmeal baths
may help with symptoms. Need-
less to say, if smoke was inhaled,
get to the emergency room.
Maybe there is a reason for
these poisonous plants other than
teaching us to be aware of our
surroundings.
Stay away from leaves of three
and try not to scratch those itch-
es.

Treasure Island couple brings experience to Sanding Ovations


By BOB McCLURE
TREASURE ISLAND When Treasure Island Recreation Director
Cathy Hayduke called, it didn't take Meredith Corson and Dan Dou-
bleday long to organize the first Sanding Ovations event a year ago.
The inaugural sand sculpting competition drew a field of eight
sculptors from around the world and the admiration of thousands
who saw their work.
This weekend, the second annual Sanding Ovations will take place
on the beach behind the Bilmar Beach Resort with many of the same
artists competing again for more than $10,000 in cash prizes.
They include Doubleday, a transplanted Californian now living in
Treasure Island; two-time world solo champion Carl Jara of Cleve-
land, three-time world champion Karen Fralich of Toronto, Benjamin
Probanza of Acapulco, Mexico; Chris Guinto of Key West, Rusty Croft
of Park City, Utah; Lucinda Wierenga of South Padre Island, Texas;
and Dan Belcher, a 13-time world champion from St. Louis.
Corson, who works on the organizational end of the event, and
Marianne van den Broek of Key West are noncompeting sponsor
sculptors.
The event kicks off Thursday, Nov. 18 and continues through Sun-
day, Nov. 21. A nonstop flow of live music will complement the artists'
work Friday through Sunday on stage.
The competing sculptors will begin their work Thursday and finish
Saturday at 3 p.m. when judging will take place.
'The judges are the sculptors and they don't judge themselves,"
Corson explained. "We use a compilation of numbers that average out
and everyone usually agrees."
'They (the sculptors) know the medium," said Doubleday.
Judging is based on originality, degree of difficulty, quality of carv-
ing, finish, artistic impression and the "wow" factor.
Last year's event wowed plenty of patrons who saw the finished


products.
It all came about with about five months' notice after Corson and
Doubleday got a call from Hayduke to say the inaugural event -which
Doubleday and Corson had pitched to the city finally had a major
sponsor. Thanks to a large infusion of money from Anheuser-Busch,
the first event took off quite smoothly.
'They (Anheuser-Busch) were looking for a beach event to promote
Landshark and Bud Light Lime," said Corson. "Once we got them, the
Bilmar and Sloppy Joe's jumped on board immediately. So did Island
Inn."
Their goal is to turn it into one of the premier sculpting contests in
the nation and ultimately an event that people will plan their vaca-
tions around.
Competing and organizing sculpting events is nothing new for Cor-
son and Doubleday who have been a couple since first meeting during
a competition in 1996 at Vancouver Island, B.C.
Corson provides the administrative expertise and Doubleday lives
for the competition.
Both began their sculpting careers as a hobby. For Corson, it was
viewing the largest sandcastle contest in Treasure Island in 1985.
"I watched and I was hooked," she said. 'The next year they let me
work on one of the big sculptures and from there I started sculpting
in my back yard."
For Doubleday, it was casual sculpting in the sand at Capitola,
Calif.
"I just started doing dolphins and sea lions and stuff in the sand,"
he said. "I did that for about a year. Then a guy asked if I'd be inter-
ested in competing in a local competition in Santa Cruz."
That was 1995 and Doubleday won first place. With it came a $500
prize and a book on sand sculpting.

Horoscopes
November 18, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
Great minds think alike, so
don't go it alone, Capricorn. If
you do, you will make a mess of
things. A major scoop gets the
rumor mill going

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
You're a mover and a shaker
this week, Aquarius. There is no
stopping you. A relative brings
home quite the gift. View it
through rose-colored glasses.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
Believe in yourself, and noth-
ing is beyond your reach, Pisces.
A breach of confidence turns out
to be a blessing in disguise. A
new wardrobe calls for a change
in accessories.

Aries
March 21 April 19
Your softer side comes out
when a friend faces a health cri-
sis. Be there for them in full
force, Aries. An announcement
gets the party started.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
You must overcome some seri-
ous objections in order to imple-
ment a plan at work. Don't
worry, Taurus. You will succeed.
An old friend drops by for a chat.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
You must clear the air with a
coworker, Gemini. They have
pushed your buttons enough. Sit
down, discuss your differences
and come up with a compromise.

Cancer
June 22 July 22
You have the answer to a re-
curring dilemma. You just need
to look inside, Cancer. A home
improvement plan goes off with-
out a hitch and is picture perfect.

Leo
July 23 August 22
You may feel like your family's
punching bag this week, but it
won't be for naught. Everyone
will recover in time for a pleasant
weekend, Leo.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
Your intentions are good, so
don't fret if others don't realize
that. They will come around,
Virgo. A special occasion calls for
some special activities.

Libra
September 23 October 22
Affairs of the heart are top pri-
ority this week, Libra. Find the
time to reconnect with your loved
ones. You won't believe every-
thing you've missed out on.

Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You're riding high for many
reasons, Scorpio. A friend invites
you over to try out a new trend.
Cast aside your reservations and
have some fun.

Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
Travel plans stall, but not for
long, Sagittarius. You become
the go-to person at work. Don't
be shy. A home improvement
project concludes.

the creepy mansion of mystery

the festivities is the appearance
of The Creeper, a mysterious
escapee from the neighboring

Creeper involves staff from the

forcement. Shifting walls and
electrical problems make find-

EFFORT, from page 1 B


"I thought I was on top of the
world," he said.
The following year he was in-
vited to the International Cham-
pionship at Vancouver Island
where he became the first North
American to win the event.
Since their early days, Corson
has won 13 titles and Doubleday
between 20 and 30. He won the
2000 World Championship and
the 2001 World Doubles Cham-
pionship.
"Through competing, we've
learned what works and what
doesn't work in a competition,"
said Doubleday. "Having the city
on board (in Treasure Island) was
half the battle right there."
The sand comes from the
small town of Davenport in cen-
tral Florida. It is trucked in to the


work and all manner of hilarity
and chills ensue.

Tickets are $15. A portion of tick-


beach at a cost of $400 to $600

"It's glacial sand from two ice
ages ago," said Doubleday. "It's
still sharp and has edges that
catch. That's how we get the
sculptures."
After sponsor sculptures are
completed, each sculptor gets
about 15 tons of sand to work
with. Moving that much sand in
a small amount of time requires
a high level of physical strength.
For that reason, Doubleday
said sand sculpting is both sport
and art. Competitors must be
fast, physical, competitive and
artistic.
Sculptors have 24 hours over
a three-day period to create their
works.
Compacting the sand in tiers,
the sculptors create a pyramidal
structure up to 12 feet tall. Once

Opening this week

Voldemort pursues Harry Potter in the first part of the wizard's final adventure


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

A number of new movies will
hit theaters this week, including
the following films opening in
wide release:

'Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows, Part 1'
Genre: Action, adventure and
fantasy
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma
Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fi-
ennes, Helena Bonham Carter
and Michael Gambon
Director: David Yates
Rated: PG-13
"Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows," the seventh and final
adventure in the Harry Potter
film series, is a motion picture
event, told in two full-length
parts.
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron
and Hermione set out on their
perilous mission to track down
and destroy the Horcruxes the
keys to Voldemort's immortality.
On their own, without the guid-
ance or protection of their profes-
sors, the three friends must now
rely on one another more than
ever. But there are Dark Forces
in their midst that threaten to
tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the Wizarding
world has become a dangerous
place for all enemies of the Dark
Lord. The long-feared war has
begun and Voldemort's Death
Eaters seize control of the Min-
istry of Magic and even Hogwarts,
terrorizing and arresting anyone
who might oppose them. But the
one prize they still seek is the one
most valuable to Voldemort:
Harry Potter. The Chosen One
has become the hunted one as
Voldemort's followers look for
Harry with orders to bring him to
the Dark Lord ... alive.
Harry's only hope is to find the
Horcruxes before Voldemort finds
him. But as he searches for
clues, he uncovers an old and al-
most forgotten tale the legend of
the Deathly Hallows. And if the
legend turns out to be true, it
could give Voldemort the ultimate
power he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his
future has already been decided
by his past when, on that fateful
day, he became "the Boy Who
Lived." No longer just a boy,
Harry Potter is drawing ever clos-
er to the task for which he has
been preparing since the day he
first stepped into Hogwarts: the
ultimate battle with Voldemort.

'The Next Three Days'
Genre: Drama, thriller and re-
make


Cast: Russell Crowe, Elizabeth
Banks, Brian Dennehy, Lennie
James and Olivia Wilde
Director: Paul Haggis
Rated: PG-13
Life seems perfect for John
Brennan (Russell Crowe) until his
wife, Lara (Elizabeth Banks), is
arrested for a murder she says
she didn't commit.
Three years into her sentence,
John is struggling to hold his
family together, raising their son
Luke (Ty Simpkins) and teaching
at community college while he
pursues every means available to
prove her innocence. With the re-
jection of their final appeal, Lara
becomes suicidal and John de-
cides there is only one possible,
bearable solution: to break his
wife out of prison. Refusing to be
deterred by impossible odds or
his own inexperience, John devis-
es an elaborate escape plot and
plunges into a dangerous and
unfamiliar world, ultimately risk-
ing everything for the woman he
loves.

The following will open in limit-
ed release. It may be several
weeks before these films appear
in local movie theaters.

'Made in Dagenham'
Genre: Foreign, comedy and
drama
Cast: Sally Hawkins, Andrea
Risborough, Bob Hoskins, Geral-
dine James and James Winstone
Director: Nigel Cole
Rated: R
When we think of '60s revolu-
tionaries, the women of Dagen-
ham don't fit the cliches but
these feisty, funny factory girls
shook their world with spirit and
courage and achieved lasting so-
cial change (yes, even the
grannies were "girls" to the men
of Ford management and their
own labor union).
Based on a true story, "Made
in Dagenham" portrays a decisive
moment in that decade of up-
heaval, when the fight for equal
rights and pay was led unex-
pectedly by ordinary working-
class women with one foot in the
kitchen, one foot on the factory
floor, and ears glued to the pop
coming over the radio and telly
from far-off London (19 kilome-
ters and a world away). It's a vin-
tage "girl power" tale.

'White Material'
Genre: Foreign, drama and war
Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Nicolas
Duvauchelle, Christopher Lam-
bert, Isaach DeBankole and
William Nadylam
Director: Claire Denis

Not rated
From Claire Denis, the incom-
parable director of "Beau Travail,"
"L'Intrus" and "35 Shots of
Rhun," comes "White Material," a
rich and thrilling account of a
woman driven to the edge.
An official selection of the
Venice, Toronto and New York
Film festivals, the film is a rivet-
ing exploration of the complexi-
ties of racial conflict and the
limits of human will. The leg-
endary Isabelle Huppert is Maria
Vial, a fearless French woman at-
tempting to run her family's cof-
fee plantation in an unnamed
African country. Torn violently
apart by hate-fueled civil conflict,
this unforgiving setting soon
turns against the foreign family,
declaring them outlaws in their
new home.
In a brash effort to save her
family and livelihood, Maria risks
everything, fighting with every
shred of her will to buck the rebel
forces wrestling for control of
local power.

Entertainment 5B


Ensemble cast drives 'How the Other Half Loves'


Spiraling falsehoods, flawed
deductions and strategically
timed misunderstandings and
miscommunications lay the
groundwork for Early Bird Din-
ner Theatre's current produc-
tion; but it's the theater's
talented troupe that really
makes this comedy blossom.
Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Din-
ner Theatre presents "How the
Other Half Loves," by Alan Ayck-
bourn, running through Dec. 26,
at the Italian American Club,
200 S. McMullen Booth Road,
Clearwater.
The play centers on three
married couples: Frank and
Fiona Foster, Bob and Teresa
Phillips and William and Mary
Detweiler. All three men work at
the same company, with Frank
employing both Bob and


William, the latter having re-
ceived a recent promotion.
"How the Other Half Loves"
boasts a single set cunningly
split in two, with each side rep-
resenting separate living rooms.
On one side is the Fosters' home,
stylish and effortlessly tidy. On
the opposing side is the Phillips'
home, a little drab and evidently
messy.
The play's action takes place
in both living rooms simultane-
ously, giving director Robin New
the ability to manipulate both
time and space as the tale un-
folds.
In the first scene, we learn
both Bob and Fiona came home
late one evening under suspi-
cious circumstances. It quickly
becomes clear that Bob, who
seems to quarrel endlessly with


Curtain Call
Lee Clark Zumpe


Teresa, is having an affair with
Fiona. When Teresa confronts
Bob about his late night es-
capade and when Frank chal-
lenges Fiona about her tardiness
on their wedding anniversary -
each cheating spouse ultimately
claims to have been comforting
one of the Detweilers, who, they
claim, are having marital prob-
lems of their own.
By the time the Detweilers ar-
rive on stage, the deception is
growing more complicated by the
second. As each loose thread be-
gins to unravel, the absurdity of


the situation elicits ever increas-
ing fits of laughter.
Gail Scott and Charles Wilcox
portray the Fosters, shrewdly
underscoring their characters'
aristocratic pretentiousness.
Scott brings out Fiona's catti-
ness as well as her arrogance,
playing the perfect aloof snob.
Wilcox does a wonderful job de-
picting Frank as terminally ab-
sent-minded and hysterically
prone to jumping to all the
wrong conclusions.
In playing Teresa and Bob,
Tracy Borgatti and Ian MacCal-
lum create the perfect contrast
to the sterile, detached relation-
ship of Fiona and Frank. Borgat-
ti and MacCallum generate
plenty of heat on the stage,
whether Teresa and Bob are at
each other's throats or letting


their passion run wild.
Barbara Anthony and Joseph
Alan Johnson conjure up some of
the show's most hilarious mo-
ments as the Detweilers. Antho-
ny's panicky, sniffling agoraphobic
Mary doesn't have to do anything
more than snort on cue to get the
audience going. As her character
transforms, her performance only
gets better. Johnson, meanwhile,
is equally convulsive as the vapid
William, whose wimpy demeanor
is occasionally displaced by sud-
den bursts of tyranny mainly
when he's addressing Mary.
Despite the ingenuity of Ayck-
bourn's 1969 play, it's really the
production company that makes
"How the Other Half Loves" real-
ly click. All that witty dialog
would fall flat without brilliant
comedic timing, a talent pos-


sessed by each of these actors.
Wilcox, in particular, shows his
mastery of this skill in this pro-
duction.
Likewise, the inventive setting
must be thoroughly convincing.
Eddy Lyons, set designer for this
production, did a fine job, best
highlighted during a scene in
which the three couples enjoy
"simultaneous" dinner parties,
hosted on two different evenings.
Seating for performances of
"How the Other Half Loves" is
Thursday through Sunday, 4
p.m., with a curtain time of 6
p.m. Seating for matinees is
Thursday and Saturday, 11
a.m., with curtain time of 1 p.m.
Cost for buffet and show is
$29.90 plus tax. Call 446-5898

Diana Ross to perform Saturday,


Nov. 20, at Ruth Eckerd Hall


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

CLEARWATER Diana Ross will
bring her More Today Than Yester-
day tour to town Saturday, Nov.
20, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall,
1111 McMullen Booth Road,
Clearwater.
The legendary icon is expected
to perform her greatest hits in
what is billed as "a spectacular live
show." Ross will be pulling out all
the stops with breathtaking cos-
tumes and stage designs, along
with a live string and horn section.
An Academy Award nominated
actress, Tony and Golden Globe
winner, and winner of eight
American Music Awards, Ross
has sold more than 100 million
records and recorded 18 No. 1 hit
songs. Having signed with Mo-
town Records in 1961 with The
Supremes, her music became the
sound of young America in the
'60s. She embarked on her ex-
traordinary solo career in 1970.
There is no doubt that she has
had a profound influence on
American popular culture and
has become a legend in the enter-
tainment industry.
For many fans, Ross has pro-
vided the soundtrack for the last
five decades.
With The Supremes, she
recorded a seemingly endless
string of hits, including "Where
Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love,"


"Come See About Me," "Stop! In
the Name of Love," "Back in My
Arms Again," "I Hear a Sympho-
ny," 'You Can't Hurry Love," "You
Keep Me Hangin' On," "Love Is
Here and Now You're Gone" and
"Love Child."
After recording 12 No. 1 singles
with The Supremes through the
1960s, Ross parted ways with her
group mates to strike out on a
solo career. Her final appearance
with The Supremes took place
Jan. 14, 1970, at the Frontier
Hotel in Las Vegas.
Ross' eponymous debut album
hit record store shelves in May
1970 and featured the No. 1 hit
single "Ain't No Mountain High
Enough," a cover of a song
penned by Nickolas Ashford and
Valerie Simpson first recorded by
Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
Ross recorded nine solo al-
bums through the 1970s, scoring
No. 1 hits with 'Touch Me in the
Morning," "Theme from Ma-
hogany (Do You Know Where
You're Going To)," "Love Hang-
over" and "Upside Down."
In 1981, she recorded the No.
1 hit "Endless Love" with Lionel
Richie.
Since 1980, Ross has contin-
ued to record and release new
material, include albums such as
"Diana," "Why Do Fools Fall in
Love," "Silk Electric," "Swept
Away," "Eaten Alive," 'The Force

Behind the Power" and "Blue."
Ross earned an Academy
Award nomination for her unfor-
gettable role as Billie Holiday in
"Lady Sings The Blues." Her work
in film also includes roles in the
1975 movie "Mahogany," 1978's
musical 'The Wiz" and the made-
for-television movie "Out of Dark-
ness" for which Ross garnered a
Golden Globe nomination for
Best Actress in a TV Movie. She
also is a bestselling author and a
recipient of The Kennedy Center
Honors. Her reputation as a
woman of great style and beauty
has put her on the covers of hun-
dreds of magazines.
In 2004 McNally Smith College
of Music honored Ross by the es-
tablishment of a full four-year
scholarship in her name. The
Diana Ross Performance Scholar-
ship is awarded each year to an
outstanding student who is pur-
suining a Bachelor in Music.
And so the legend continues.

Reaching out


Mary Howard, right, who is in her 80s, made 50 teddy bears as presents for children at Rainbow
Village. Rosamunda Massawe, left, a nun at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Largo, provides help to the
village in many ways, such as holding interfaith prayer days. One of Massawe's ministries is to reach
out and serve the people of low income, including refugees from African countries and Haiti.

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi



When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it
helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the next time you're shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.


For assistance, please call:
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
