Mobile home


park, city at


odds over tree
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO Residents of a mobile home community continue to
be at odds with the city over an oak tree that they contend
caused damage to a unit on in the park.
The city's assistant building official and chief building inspec-
tor visited Paradise Island, located off Starkey Road, Nov. 17, in
response to a complaint that the tree, growing behind a unit
near the northeast comer of the property, was causing struc-
tural damage to the mobile home.
Commissioner Woody Brown had asked at the commission
meeting Nov. 16 that a building inspector look at the house
rather than just the arborist to see if there is damage being
done to the structure.
"With limited visibility, there appears to be no obvious move-
ment or obvious evidence of instability due to tree roots" at two
locations officials examined, wrote Assistant Building Official
William Ondulich, in an e-mail to other city officials dated Nov.
17.
Nancy Perry, manager of the Paradise Island Co-op Inc.,
asked city commissioners at their meeting for help in resolving
the issue. After the most recent visit by city officials, she contin-
ued to argue that the inspection was not performed by a struc-
tural engineer.
Paradise Island has asked city officials to waive fees related to
having the tree removed.
The city arborist visited the park on Nov. 4 and determined that
there was cosmetic damage to the decorative skirting around the
base of the unit and to the driveway that could have been caused
by the tree, but he was not able to find any structural damage.
To appeal city officials' decision to the city Planning Board

State retailers


expect sales


to increase


By SUZETTE PORTER
Some say the Friday after
Thanksgiving determines whether
a business ends the year in the
red or in the black.
It is the explanation most often
given for how Black Friday got its
name.
For some, Black Friday is a
holiday tradition. For most, the
day marks the unofficial start to
the holiday shopping season.
The past few years have been
tough for retailers as shoppers
curbed their spending due to
budgetary concerns tied to the
economic downturn. However,
experts say that things are look-
ing a bit brighter for shoppers
and retailers alike this year.
Florida's retailers are expecting
a 3 to 4 percent increase in sales
compared to last year, exceeding
the predicted national increase of
2.3 percent, according to Rick
McAllister, president and CEO of
the Florida Retail Federation.
"Consumers are showing that
they're tired of being totally frugal
and that they plan on being a lit-
tle more generous this year,"


Nationally, more
than 138 million
people are
expected to head
to the stores on
Black Friday
weekend.

McAllister said. "I believe both
consumers and retailers can look
forward to a rewarding holiday
season."
The third annual Holiday
Shopping Consumer Pulse survey
by AAA showed that 45 percent of
consumers have already started
shopping for the holidays, and 54
percent expect to spend about
the same amount on gifts as last
year.
"Interestingly, more than 60
percent of respondents report
they will try to buy more gifts on
sale and research the lowest
prices, yet less than half plan to
take advantage of Black Friday or

Death by Chocolate to showcase sweet decadence


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
LARGO The Rotary Club of Largo
will present Death by Chocolate Friday,
Dec. 3, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Largo Cultural
Center, 105 Central Park Drive.
This annual fundraiser supports local
youth and empowerment initiatives. Pa-
trons enjoy dessert samples from local
restaurants and businesses in the beau-
tiful setting of Largo's Central Park with
an annual holiday light display. The
event also includes live entertainment, a
silent auction and door prizes.
Annually, the event raises more than
$20,000 for local youth programs.
"I am so excited about this year's
event," said Jennifer McMahon, the
event chair. "We have 26 chocolatiers
this year the most we have had in
quite some time ... and 10 are new."


According to McMahon, new partici- 'This is my second year as chair per-

If the bite-size samples of special

enough to entice guests, the fundraiser
also features door prizes and entertain-

'We also have a flutist and the Largo

champagne is served and there is a

This year's silent auction items are
tempting, too.
'We have a lot of themed gift baskets

McMahon said. "Many of the choco-

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Bleeding Gums? They Could Be Wrecking
Your Health!
A recent article in The Reader's Digest told a dramatic story of a
man's survival against great odds. He was not injured in a mountain
climbing accident. He did not develop a rare tropical disease. A wild
- animal did not attack him. He had gum disease
... and it almost killed him.


Silly as it may sound, there are profound links
between gum health and whole body health and
they are absolutely nothing to laugh about.
Heart Disease, Diabetes and Cancer The
Link To Your Gums


It has been clearly established that gum
disease plays a major role in cardiac disease, the
number one killer in the United States. An 18-year study concluded
that people with gum disease were twice as likely to die from a heart
attack and three times more likely to die from a stroke. Gum
problems have shown themselves to be a stronger predictor of heart
disease than the more traditional risk factors such as cholesterol.
Periodontal disease wreaks havoc on blood sugar levels, resulting in
a significant role in our country's diabetic crisis. If you have diabetes
and your gums bleed, your chances of dying early can increase 400 to
700 percent.
Pregnancy complications are an astounding three times more likely
for women with gum disease.
More than 30,000 Americans are expected to lose their lives to
pancreatic cancer this year, and, according to a Harvard study,
periodontal disease has been strongly linked to this deadly and fast
spreading cancer.
Clearly, gum disease does more than cause bleeding gums and tooth
loss! It could be a matter of life and death.

body health, or to schedule a cleaning or complimentary consultation,

would require a payment of a $300 application fee.
During the commission meeting, Perry took offense at a letter sent to
Paradise Island from city officials saying that an interior inspection by a
structural engineer or other professional hired by the park or unit
owner would be necessary to confirm damage to the unit.
"This is beyond belief that the city would have the unmitigated gall to
tell us to go and get it when we have given you pictures, we have shown
you the damage," Perry said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said the city does not have the authority to waive
the $300 application fee for the appeal and can't pay for damage that


SALES, from page 1A


Cyber Monday, which are traditionally known as the days retailers
provide the most significant discounts," the AAA survey report
said. "However, more than 80 percent of consumers reported they
intend to shop at discount stores such as Target and Walmart in
order to save money."
Nationally, more than 138 million people are expected to head to
the stores on Black Friday weekend, and millions have spent time
mapping out their strategy and completing their shopping lists.
According to a National Retail Federation survey by BIGresearch,
of the 138 million who say they plan to shop, 60 million say they
will definitely shop this weekend, while 78 million say they'll wait
and see how good the deals are before deciding to brave the crowds
and traffic.
"The rules for Black Friday have changed significantly," said
NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay. "Instead of waiting until
Thanksgiving Day to announce their promotions, many retailers
are getting shoppers excited about Black Friday by offering sneak
peeks of deals in advance, using social media to create buzz, or
teasing upcoming deals on their websites."
Cyber Monday, immediately after Black Friday, continues to
grow in popularity, according to the Shop.org eHoliday survey,
conducted by BIGresearch. Online retailers are gearing up to pro-
mote their wares for Black Friday and Cyber Monday in a variety of
ways.
More than half of retailers (54.9 percent) will send an e-mail to
customers about Black Friday deals and nearly four out of 10


According to McMahon, a few years ago, Island Way Grill created a
Jalapeno Tequila Chocolate Mousse.
'That," she said, "I will never forget."
She also is excited about trying samples from some of the new par-
ticipants.
"I am looking forward to trying a chocolate wine slushie from Wine
Slushies that is said to taste like a fudgecicle," she said. "I had some
tasting from Wicked Temptations and Sweet Spot at their locations
and loved them. And of course, Melting Pot is an exciting addition."
Decadence aside, though, this fundraiser enables the Rotary Club of
Largo to support a variety of community programs.
Programs that have benefited from Death by Chocolate include the
Largo Library, Largo Day of Good Deeds, Largo Smuppets, Community


has not been proven.
"I'm sorry ... the problem is the community development director has
the authority and we don't. The procedure is laid out for you to come to
the Planning Board, that's the next step, and talk about it there."
Commissioner Mary Black said she sided with Paradise Island resi-
dents.
"When I look at a picture and I see damage that has taken place be-
cause of the roots of a tree, and I know from personal experience what
roots of a tree can do, I feel that your permit fee should be waived," she
said.
She said she thinks as elected officials, city commissioners have the
final say.


(39.2 percent) will use their Facebook page to reach out to shop-
pers, according to the eHoliday survey. Many retailers will utilize
their website's home page (31.4 percent) and Twitter (21.6 percent)
to announce and promote Black Friday deals. CyberMonday.com
will be distributing gift cards from major retailers each day
through Dec. 25 to its fans on Facebook and followers on Twitter.
The Florida Retail Federation points to a recent consumer confi-
dence report that shows an increase in the number of people who
think it is a good time to buy big-ticket items. The report by the
University of Florida released Oct. 26 also showed that Floridian's
perception that their personal finances are higher than this time
last year all adds up to the possibility of a better year for retailers.
More people are planning to spend money on less practical gifts,
according to the NRF survey. Thirteen percent more have jewelry
on their wish list as compared to last year. More people would like
to receive personal care and beauty items. Value will trump price
for this year's shoppers.
"It's not all about price this year," McAllister said. "Consumers
may not be spending like they did in 2006, but research suggests
that they will be shopping for higher-priced items that people want
rather than simply need. A cell phone that costs twice the price,
but has a higher degree of functionality is what will likely be wait-
ing under the tree."
More spending by consumers should mean more seasonal jobs
for the state's unemployed. In 2008 and 2009, retailers hired
30,000 to 40,000 people during the holiday season. McAllister
thinks even more seasonal workers will get jobs in 2010.
"Throughout the recession, the retail industry has been one of

By the numbers, the event raises more than $20,000 annually. Over
the last 14 years, more than $275,000 has been raised.
That's pretty sweet, in terms of enhancing the community.
McMahon is proud of past achievements and firmly believes this
year's event will be equally successful.
"I personally think this year's chocolatier lineup is the best it has
been," said McMahon, "so I can not wait. I don't think people will be
disappointed either."


City Attorney Alan Zimmet said he didn't want residents to leave the
meeting with the wrong impression. He said the fee was adopted by
City Commission through an ordinance, and neither the commission
nor the Planning Board has the authority to waive it.
However, he said the Planning Board has the authority to waive the
permit fee to remove the tree, he said.
Meanwhile, city officials say they will continue to work with Paradise
Island to determine the cause of sewage odors in the park.
City Commissioner Harriet Crozier told Paradise Island residents
they will be a part of the process to rank firms considered to determine
the cause of the problem. Paradise Island has asked for an independent
analysis of the issue.


the brightest spots in the hiring slump. Retailers provide one out of
every five jobs in Florida," McAllister said. "Just like Santa needs
his elves, retailers need extra 'elves' to spread the holiday spirit."
While Black Friday may still be viewed as the make-it or break-it
weekend for retailers, the weekend prior to Christmas is tradition-
ally the busiest shopping time of the year, McAllister said. He cau-
tioned that last-minute shoppers might not find the best deals. He
predicted fewer deeper price cuts this year and said those would
come early.
"Black Friday happens every year for a reason," he said. "The
majority of door busters and giveaways are set for that famous day
after Thanksgiving, so don't wait."
AAA offers tips for stretching the holiday budget.
Take advantage of retail or online discounts and check with
any clubs or associations to see if discounts and rewards are avail-
able.
When shopping online, look for special offers or dates from re-
tailers when free shipping may be available.
Check store circulars for in-store sales or coupons. Note that
many retailers will honor sale prices if items were purchased the
week before they went on sale.
Sort through junk mail since many retailers send bonus
coupons and gift cards in the mail during the holidays.
Consider taking one retailer's circular to another retailer and
ask for competitive pricing.
If you want to purchase an item in a store, but forgot the
coupon, ask if you can bring the coupon back for the adjusted
price.

Longer commission terms
up to voters
BELLEAIR BLUFFS A referendum vote will be
held on extending city commission members' terms.
Voters will decide whether to lengthen the terms of
the mayor and commissioners from two years to
three.
The commission members were in favor of the
change during a discussion of the issue at last
week's workshop. Commissioner Jack Nazario said
longer terms "will save money and make us better
commissioners."
Longer terms would result in fewer elections,
which cost the city about $3,600 to hold, City Clerk
Debra Sullivan pointed out.
The term change would be accomplished by voter
approval of an amendment to the city charter. An
ordinance authorizing a referendum on the issue
was unanimously approved by the commission at
its Nov. 15 meeting.
The issue can be placed on the ballot next March,
when the mayor and two commissioners are up for
election. However, the vote will be held over if the
commission members are unchallenged and no city
election is needed.
"If there wasn't an election, I wouldn't spend tax-
payer money to put (the term extension referendum)
on there," said Commissioner Suzy Sofer.
The term extensions, if approved, would take ef-
fect on the election following the decision, city attor-
ney Thomas Trask said.
A previous attempt to extend the commission
terms to three years was soundly defeated in 2005.
Some have speculated that voters were inclined to
vote no at that time because of heavy advertising
against several other issues.

New commissioner's needs stir lengthy discussion


By SUZETTE PORTER

CLEARWATER An assistant
for the newest Pinellas County
commissioner sparked hours of
debate during a Nov. 16 work
session.
Just hours after newly elected
Commissioner Norm Roche took
the oath of office, he butted
heads with the majority of the
board as he insisted it was his
right to hire an assistant to help
him set up his office and perform
his new duties.
However, his fellow commis-
sioners approved a new policy by
consensus at a June budget
meeting that called for not filling
vacant assistant positions.
Former Commissioner Calvin
Harris' assistant resigned her po-
sition when her employer lost the
Nov. 2 election.
Roche, supported by Commis-
sioners Ken Welch and Neil
Brickfield, argued that the June
meeting did not include the sce-
nario of a position left vacant due
to an election. The remainder of
the board said the reason the po-
sition became vacant wasn't as
important as implementing the
budget-saving measure.
'We just decided this in June,"
Commissioner John Morroni
said. "I'd hate for us to go back
on it already."
Commissioner Nancy Bostock


presented a number of options
that called for shared assistants.
She said it was time to stop
thinking of assistants in terms of
being employed by an individual
commissioner but instead to
think of them as employees of
the board as a whole.
She said her options "pro-
motes working together as a
commission rather than individ-
ual commissioner's offices." She
also said implementing a policy
of shared assistants would not
require layoffs and would "fulfill
our commitment to the new poli-
cy."
Commissioner Susan Latvala
said Roche was actually at an
advantage because he did not
"know the old way."
"You can't miss what you
never had," she said.
She spoke of the commission's
commitment to reduce its own
budget and the fact that reduc-
ing the number of assistants had
been on the table for the past
three years. The problem had
been that no commissioner
wanted to lay off his or her own
assistant. She advocated trying
the shared assistant plan.
"If it doesn't work, we can
come back and talk about it,"
she said.
Welch was of the opinion that
the commission had done a good
job of cutting its own budget.

"We already cut 22 percent,"
he said. "We've cut travel, too
much maybe. We've cut comput-
ers, faxes, and printers. We've
cut pay to the assistants. We've
cut our own pay."
He said each commissioner
had their own working methods
and was not happy with the idea
of having part time assistants for
a full time job.
Brickfield agreed.
He also said it was a
"fairness issue."
"We all got to hire
our assistants," he
said. "I want Roche to
have the same level of
opportunity that we
had."
Commission Chair
Karen Seel and Bo- Norm Rod
stock pointed out that
they had not hired their assis-
tants, but had "inherited" them
from a former commissioner.
The commissioners against fill-
ing the vacant position insisted
that implementing the new policy
was not meant to target Roche
and was not personal.
Roche said he was "taking no
offense." He also said he believed
the board had already taken
"good pragmatic moves already."
He said the board's budget was
less than 1 percent of the total
and 'very efficient."
"But the fact of the matter is
that each of us have individual
offices, individual responsibilities
and individual accountabilities,"


he said.
He also said he was "account-
able to those who put me in of-
fice" and could justify his hiring
of an assistant to the public.
"I was elected countywide. It's
a big job. I need someone to es-
tablish my office and help me. I
have a lot of work answering
messages and mail," he said.
He also pointed out that by
bringing in someone
new, the cost would be
less than maintaining
the salary of the already-
budgeted position.
S County Attorney Jim
Bennett discussed po-
tential issues with the
concept of shared assis-
tants, including the need
he for training and "height-
ened level of sensitivity"
in regards to issues with the
Sunshine law. Evaluations of
employees, which are currently
done one-on-one with an individ-
ual commissioner, would need to
change to allow for input of the
entire commission.
Roche asked Bennett if there
was any reason that he could not
start interviewing for an assis-
tant. Bennett said there was not;
however, he said that the matter
was "uncharted waters."
Morroni suggested hiring
someone for 90 days to help
Roche get situated. The others
pointed out it would take more
than 90 days for a new person to
learn the job. The other concern


was that once someone was
hired, the board likely would
have the same reluctance to call
for layoffs.
"It's just kicking the can down
the road," Latvala said.
Bostock said if in two years
another new commissioner was
added to the board due to an
election, the argument would be
the same. She said the only solu-
tion was to change the focus to
make the assistants employees of
the board rather than an individ-
ual commissioner. She even sug-
gested firing all the current
assistants and then hiring them
back as a board.
Welch said he appreciated all
the work Bostock had done to
prepare different options on how
to utilize the assistants' posi-
tions, "but we've spent hours on
a $60,000 issue when we have a
$60 million budget gap."
He said the commissioners
should look at the big picture
and compared the way Pinellas
used its assistants with other
counties.
Seel suggested that the matter
be tabled until the next meeting
on Nov. 30.
"I'm not prepared to wait ... We
already have a budgeted posi-
tion," Roche said. "I need to hire
my assistant, set up my office,
and move forward ... I don't
know what's stopping me from
getting to work. I'd like to move
forward, hire an assistant and
get to work."


In the end, they agreed to look
into the legalities and personnel
rules involved before making a
final decision; however, Roche in-
dicated that he intended to begin
interviews for his assistant re-
gardless.
"Nothing precludes him from
hiring tomorrow. It's a budgeted
position," Bennett said.
The only way to stop Roche
would have been to amend the
budget.
Numerous motions were put
on the table to try to find consen-
sus. The majority continued to
favor not filling the vacant posi-
tion. However, Morroni would not
vote for a change in the budget,
saying it was not advertised even
though assistant county admin-
istrator Mark Woodard said the
board could amend the budget
without advertising or calling for
a public hearing.
"This is a spectacle for heav-
en's sake," Roche said. "I need to
go to work. We need to move for-
ward."
He said he favored a public
hearing on the matter.
"What better way than to allow
the people to defend me," he
said.
"It's not about you," Bostock
said. "It's about the position."
Finally, Seel made her decision
to put the item on the Nov. 30
agenda.
"Unless we decide it is not
worth pursuing. This meeting is
adjourned."

Biltmore resort could become assisted living facility


By HARLAN WEIKLE

BELLEAIR From five-star hotel to assisted liv-
ing facility may seem like a reversal of fortune to
some, but for David R. Vaughan, CEO of Senior
Care Group Inc. it makes perfect sense.
From their offices in Tampa Nov. 16, Vaughan
and company President Kevin McGuinness spoke
enthusiastically about their bid to build a senior as-
sisted living facility at the Belleview Biltmore site.
"We're the ideal candidate," McGuinness said.
'They're (KAWA Capital Management) looking for a
partner that will satisfy all parties, we fit that
mold."
Senior Care Group officials signed a letter of
agreement with KAWA Capital Management of
Miami Nov. 12. Daniel Ades, a principal of KAWA,
had said earlier they are seeking a partner to pur-
chase the hotel.
"There is a tsunami coming in senior health


care," Vaughan said. "Hospitals have to partner
with facilities of equivalent care capabilities like Se-
nior Care or face penalties from the insurance com-
panies. It's important that we meet the needs of the
community."
Senior Care Group, a nonprofit 501-(C)(3) corpo-
ration, operates eight senior facilities in Florida in-
cluding two in Pinellas County; Harbour Wood at
2855 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater and Grace
Wood Nursing Center at 8600 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas
Park. Their newest campus in Key West, Key West
Health and Rehabilitation Center, opened Nov. 16.
"If we're successful we'll be good neighbors to the
community, providing a much needed service and
with very low impact," McGuinness said.
McGuinness said their deal did not include the
Cabana Club property on Sand Key.
"We were not offered that," he said.
Ades confirmed the agreement saying, "We feel
that they (Senior Care Group) are one of the most


competent groups we've talked to, which is why we
have agreed to finance the purchase."
Ades added that the Cabana Club property
would be developed by his group. Asked about the
cottages on the hotel property, Ades said, "They
would be the responsibility of the new owners."
Senior Care Group's plans include an assisted
living facility in conjunction with a skilled nursing
care center and possibly a memory-impaired care
facility with some of the rooms reserved as hotel fa-
cilities for visitors desiring access to a multipurpose
care center.
"We estimate that about 79 to 80 percent of the
structure is sound," McGuinness said. "Of course
the roof and the foundation are critical; this would
be a rebuild from the inside out."
Vaughan added, "We want to keep as much of
the original structure as possible."
McGuinness and Vaughan met with Mayor Gary
Katica and Town Manager Micah Maxwell on Nov.


15. They have a good track record and this could
mean as many as 500 new jobs for the area," Kati-
ca said.
Katica made an announcement regarding Senior
Care Group's interest in buying the property at last
week's town commission meeting.
"I just want to keep this process transparent,"
Katica stated. "Ultimately it's the decision of the
parties involved."
Katica said he worries about homeowners in the
RPD and particularly nearby condo owners who
might want to sell, 'They're looking at this empty
structure with a deteriorating roof, so this type of
project could be a positive outcome for the commu-
nity."
Their agreement with KAWA, McGuinness con-
firmed, specifies they have until Jan. 4 to complete
due diligence and place a deposit on the hotel.
"We'll be on the ground the next day, ready to
work," he said.


Experts give residents advice at forum on how to deal with coyotes


By JULIANA A. TORRES

PINELLAS PARK Residents
from across Pinellas County,
many angry and upset with what
they see as a growing coyote prob-
lem in their neighborhoods,
packed a meeting room in Park
Station for a forum about the
highly adaptable predators Nov.
10.
"Everyone keeps saying, it's not
our problem. We're here to ask,
whose problem is it? What do we
do?" said Ellen Hoffman, a mem-
ber of Pinellas Park's equestrian
community, which has had in-
creased difficulty with coyotes
lately. "I lost four cats before we
knew what the heck was going on.
We're afraid next it's going to be
attacking something else, the dogs
or the horses, or the other ani-
mals we have in that area."
A panel of four experts an-
swered residents' questions, al-
layed some of their fears and
encouraged proper behaviors to-
ward coyotes. What they didn't do,
however, was assure residents
that coyotes could be eliminated
from Pinellas County.
"Trying to eradicate coyotes, it's
not going to work," said Greg An-
drews, operations manager for
Pinellas County Animal Services.
"It didn't work in California. They
still have a coyote problem after
spending millions of dollars. Un-
fortunately, Pinellas County can't
solve this problem."
Andrews opened the discussion
with a presentation outlining coy-
otes' basic habits, hunting prac-


tices and capabilities. He empha-
sized that residents' primary de-
fense against coyotes in an urban
environment was increased
awareness and education.
"They've not necessarily become
more brazen or more aggressive.
Believe it or not, we've conditioned
them to their current state," he
said. "Most of the time, they go
out of their way to avoid humans.
They've discovered that we're a
good source of food for them."
Breanne Strepina, a wildlife bi-
ologist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, emphasized that residents
were seeing more coyotes in recent
weeks because coyotes are in the
process of kicking grown juveniles
out of their territory. Coyotes are
not social creatures and will only
work in groups while their litter is
maturing, she said. The recent in-
creased coyote sightings are main-
ly due to these displaced juveniles.
"Come December or January,
you're going to see less and less of
them," Strepina said. "You're not
going to ever have an area that
has no coyotes. Coyotes are in
every nook and cranny of this en-
tire state. It may sound scary, but
they've been there the entire time."
While coyotes aren't a protected
species and could be hunted with-
out permits, it is illegal to dis-
charge a firearm in
densely-populated Pinellas Coun-
ty. Many residents were specifical-
ly frustrated with that limitation.
Members of Pinellas Park eques-
trian community complained that
the feral cats they cared for and


used as barn cats were disappear-
ing.
"All of sudden they're all gone.
All of them," Hoffman said. "We've
lost all the ducks, we've lost all the
raccoons. We've lost everything,
everything in the area. And now
you're telling us that I can't shoot
the damn thing. So what do I do?"
The audience, many of which
were from outside of Pinellas Park,
agreed with the sentiment.
"That's what happened down at
Pinellas Point," said Mary Vollmer,
a resident of that area. "There's no
animals hardly left, hardly no
birds ... no raccoons, no possums.
They've gotten so many of them.
It's just too much. I'm just so frus-
trated."
Addressing the fears that coy-
otes would turn to bigger prey,
Strepina explained that the coy-
otes would expand their territo-
ries, fighting off other coyotes to
do so, if they ran out of mammals
under 10 pounds that commonly
make up their diet. Also, coyotes
are not exclusively predators, she
said, able to live off a diet of seeds,
berries or vegetation.
The panel suggested a number
of preventative methods for keep-
ing coyotes from small animals on
which they would otherwise prey:
fences higher than 4 feet with
measures to keep the coyotes from
digging under the fence; motion
sensors, strobe lights or sirens.
Constructing 7-foot or higher
posts with platforms could give
feral cats an escape route, An-
drews said.
However, the panel argued that

keeping all food sources, including
pets and livestock feed, indoors or
locked away was the best method
of keeping coyotes at bay.
"It depends on your behavior
too. Are you going to provide food
for 20, 30 cats in one area? If so,
you're creating a smorgasbord for
larger animals," Strepina said.
"Anything that's going to attract a
raccoon, is going to attract a coy-
ote. Eliminate those sources and
you're not going to be seeing coy-
otes as much."
Additionally, coyotes, especially
a potential problem coyote that
displayed aggressive behavior to-
ward humans, could be trapped
and euthanized. However, trap-
ping a coyote is a highly skilled
task, best left to professionals,
Florida Wildlife Control Associa-
tion President Charles Carpenter
said.
"Any trapper that takes on a
coyote job that's worth his salt,
should do his research before he
even quotes you a price," said
Wayne Salicrup, vice president of


Florida Wildlife Control Associa-
tion and owner of the private com-
pany Trapline Wildlife Services.
Salicrup said he would only
take on a job from an entire sub-
urban neighborhood, rather than
just one resident, or from a client
with enough land to track the
coyote's movements to determine
its "core area," using aerial pho-
tos. Targeting coyotes seen in too
small an area, a single homeown-
er's backyard for example, was
futile, as the sighted coyote may
never return to that exact spot,
Salicrup said.
"We can successfully control
them in pretty much any area. It
is definitely possible," he said. "It
is a lot of work. You have to set
traps every day."
Salicrup also suggested the
farming communities consider
getting a dog specifically bred to
ward off coyotes. Donkeys and
llamas also were suggested as
guard animals.
The other major problem with
attempting to eliminate a coyote

population was their reproductive
habits. If the population feels
threatened, coyotes will repro-
duce more often, twice a year in-
stead of once a year, and have
more offspring per litter, up to 12
pups instead of a usual six, Stre-
pina said.
"So next year, the situation
could be worse," she said.
Because of that, past statewide
attempts to eliminate coyote pop-
ulations in California, Texas and
Arizona have proved "expensive
and futile," Andrews said.
Sgt. Tracey Schofield with the
Pinellas Park Police Department
also said that law enforcement
would take a "dim view" of resi-
dents trying to shoot coyotes at
the expense of surrounding prop-
erty or neighbors.

Notebook


Cook elected school board chair
LARGO Carol J. Cook was elected chairperson of
the Pinellas County School Board at an organizational

Cool water brings grouper,


trout; time to try trolling


Constant changes in the
weather can make for difficult
fishing.
After a cold front passes
through it can take several days
for conditions to become optimal
for fish to begin feeding again. In-
shore waters cool more rapidly
than deeper offshore waters, so
even a weak cold front can drop
the water temps enough to shut
the flats down.
Grouper action usually picks
up this time of year and so far
that seems to be holding true to
form. Cool water has brought the
gags in closer; depths from 20 to
40 feet or even shallower can
hold quality-sized gag grouper.
Trolling can be a great way to
target grouper. Deep diving plugs


Fish Tales
Capt. Tyson
Wallerstein


can reach the bottom in depths
up to 30 feet, and this allows you
to find new spots that might be
worthwhile to anchor fish.
Stone crab traps are often set
running in a north/south direc-
tion; typically they mark small
breaks in the gulf floor known as
ledges. These ledges, (some as
small as a foot or two) are what
attract the grouper. Once a ledge
is located try trolling east to west
up and down the ledge in order to
find the best part.


Although the redfishing has
slowed a bit, there are plenty of
good sized trout making for some
spectacular catch and release ac-
tion. Live chumming with
pilchards had produced nearly
nonstop action for trout up to 24
inches. Target peak tidal flows,
both incoming and outgoing and
be sure to find areas of clean
water.
Until next week, get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be
reached at capt.tyson@hotmail
.com. To get a fish photo in the
paper, send the photo along with
your name, when and where it
was caught to editorial@TBN-

Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.


Rays to freeze, decrease prices


The American League East Champion Tampa Bay
Rays announced that prices for 62 percent of their
tickets will remain the same or decrease for the
2011 season.
In addition, the Rays will change game times at
Tropicana Field next season. Monday through
Thursday games in April and May will start at 6:40
p.m. All other weekday games including all Fri-
days will start at 7:10 p.m. with the exception of
nine dates scattered throughout the season. Satur-
day game times will be announced at a later date,
and Sundays will start at 1:40 p.m.
"Our ticket pricing, as well as the change in game
times, reflects our commitment to keeping Rays
baseball at Tropicana Field affordable and accessi-
ble to our fans, especially for families," said team
president Matt Silverman. "Upper deck pricing for
30 of our games is $9, and more than one million
tickets are priced at $25 or less."
In 2009 the Rays were named by ESPN the Maga-
zine as the most affordable team among the four
major professional sports and in 2010 were ranked
third out of the 122 teams in Major League Baseball,
the National Football League, the National Hockey
League and the National Basketball Association.


For the sixth consecutive year, the Rays will con-
tinue to provide carpoolers access to free parking in
team-controlled lots. As in 2010, vehicles with four
or more passengers will continue to park free in
team-controlled lots for all Sunday games, subject to
availability. For all other games, the first 100 cars
with four or more will park for free up to an hour be-
fore game time, with other main lot Tropicana Field
parking rates ranging from $15 to $20 per vehicle.
The Rays also will continue to be one of the few
teams with the family-friendly policy allowing fans
to bring food and select beverages into the ball-
park.
For 2011, there will be four categories of individ-
ual ticket pricing: Diamond, Platinum, Gold and
Silver. All ticket prices for each game are subject
to change at the Rays discretion.
"While we emphasize affordability in our single-
game prices, the best value for our fans will con-
tinue to be season tickets," said Rays senior vice
president Mark Fernandez. "Season ticket holders
receive the largest discount off individual game
prices, and they have access to our best seat loca-
tions during the regular season and, as in 2008
and 2010, for the postseason."

A time for...



turkey trivia

Just in case you wanted to know, here's some Thanksgiving trivia for
you to chew on as you enjoy the holiday with family and friends.
The National Turkey Federation says that 87 percent of Americans
eat turkey at Thanksgiving whether it's coffee rubbed turkey from
Hawaii, barbecued turkey, cajun fried turkey or say it isn't so in a
television frozen dinner.
President Truman started the tradition of granting a presidential
pardon to one turkey each year. In 2009 President Obama spared
"Courage" along with an alternate called "Carolina." Sorry, this year's
turkey pardon was granted after this week's papers went to press.
Each year, Cincinnati prepares for Thanksgiving with its traditional
Turkey Bowl, an outdoors event. Frozen turkeys are used in place of
bowling balls. The turkeys are discarded from stores and were not in-
tended for consumption.
Johnny Carson said it: "Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. Peo-
ple travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a
year. And then discover once a year is way too often."
Football on Thanksgiving was played before the formation of the
National Football League. Records of the game being played on Thanks-
giving go back to as early as 1902. The first owner of the Lions, accord-
ing to Wikipedia, started the tradition of Thanksgiving Day football as a
way to get people to Lions football games. The Lions have played on
Thanksgiving more than any other teams.
Popeye in the 1958 Macy's Day Parade was so heavy that the bal-
loon handlers lost control. The balloon went off course and dumped
water from Popeye's hat onto spectators. The first Macy's Thanksgiving
Day parade in 1924 didn't have balloons; live animals were borrowed
from the Central Park Zoo.
Though often referred to as the busiest shopping day of the year,
Black Friday in terms of sales volume has been surpassed by other
days. The busiest retail shopping day of the year in the United States
usually has been the Saturday before Christmas.
Ever tried turducken? It is a de-boned turkey, a fully hand de-
boned duck, and a fully hand de-boned chicken, all rolled into one and
stuffed with lots of delicious stuffing. Sorry, we don't have the recipe.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

Journalism is dead
Editor:
It still amazes how all newspa-
pers today fail to report accurate
information. Might be why they
are going out of business. It could
be they just print what they be-
lieve, weather they are Right or
Left. Sadly journalism is dead.
Facts today are not important
to any story. Tampa Bay Newspa-
pers' Ms. Torres obviously is a
liberal. Had she done any de-
tailed investigation on Glen
Beck's Restoring Honor she
would know that by many ac-
counts, other than Glen's, the
crowd on Aug. 28, 2010, was well
over 500,000.
I was there and spoke to many
park rangers who, while they can
give an official count, were very
certain that over 500,000 people
were there. They also said on Sat-
urday that this was the most well
behaved and clean group they
have ever had at that spot. No
special clean up crew was re-
quired. And unlike the radical
group portrayed by the left, this
was a get together of peace loving
patriots who love America and
want it to remain a great Repub-
lic not a socialist country this Ad-
ministration is trying to
fundamentally transform to.
The first step, restore honor to
our government, starting with
restoring honor in we the people
with our leader being the
almighty god.
Ron Funderburk
Clearwater

Responds to articles
Editor:
Every week I look forward to
our receipt of The Pinellas Park
Beacon. However, the Nov. 5,
2010 issue has necessitated a re-
sponse from me on a couple of is-
sues.
First, Juliana A. Torres's article
"How I (sort of) attended the rally
to restore Sanity."
Jon Steward and Steven Col-
bert are way to the left and you
should know that. The Tuesday,
Nov. 2, election showed clearly
that most Americans are tired of
the liberal, leftist way of govern-
ing.
Individual responsibility is the
American way. Small government
and taking care of ourselves and
each other is the only way to go.
Wake up Juliana.
Second, Jeff Shelton's letter to
the editor, "Abused women
should take responsibility for
themselves."
I agree wholeheartedly with
you. I (Tricia) am a grandmother
who as a child grew up in an
abusive household. The one thing
I said was I would never live that
way and it breaks my heart to
know that too many women don't
have the courage to stand up for
themselves and their children.
You are right, Mr. Sheldon. It is a
war out there. And God help any-
one who ever tries to hurt me or
mine.

Happy 40th
birthday, Seminole
Editor:
What a big and busy year it
has been with celebrating "Gold-
en 50th" at both the Seminole Li-
brary 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
addition 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 ar-
rived in Seminole, back in Jan-
uary 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 com-
pared 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,
former mayors (Holland)
Mangum, Dottie Reeder and cur-
rent mayor (Jimmy) Johnson.
Also, all councilors past and
present, and last but not least
our city manager, Mr. (Frank) Ed-
munds. 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.

Support
small businesses
Editor:
Will it be a merry Christmas for
our greater Belleair business
community?
I love our little slice of paradise,
all our homegrown retailers who
help make it a special place of
uniqueness and a great place to
live. But hard times are upon all
of us; our neighbors need help.
Yes, neighbors! This season is
make or break for many small
business owners; these folks are
your neighbors. The economy hit
them exceptionally hard two
years ago; they have cut back to
the bone. You might ask, "Why
should I buy from them when I
can shop at the big retailer and
save a few dollars?" I'll tell you
why. When your school, church
or other organization seek dona-
tions, where do you go?
As a retailer myself, it happens
almost daily. We try hard to help
everyone, but it's not possible.
Our hope is that the goodwill
comes back with support from
the community.
Largo retailers think big, rather
than small, when donating. You'd
have to write to their headquar-
ters in another state then get lost
in the Wally World corporate
storm. Please don't think I'm sug-
gesting you avoid shopping at
Walmart or Sam's Club, as that's
impossible. I've heard the excuse,
"I'm at Sam's Club and it's more
convenient and I can get every-
thing there."
But remember your neighbors
and business partners help keep
the value of your homes high, pay
taxes and employ your friends
and family. They are there for
you! I ask you to please step out
of the box, make life a little more
joyful and walk into the small
businesses, your neighbors. You
might be surprised to see their
prices are just as competitive as
the big boys. The next time you
need that special item at the last
minute, your neighbor and busi-
ness partner will be there for you.
Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas!

How to handle airport searches


If I were running the nation's airports and
their security procedures, here's how I would
solve the problem of patdowns, full-screen im-
aging, sensitive body areas and all that other
stuff that has got people upset.
I would divide all passengers into several
different groups. The first group would be
called NAKED AND PROUD OF IT. These
would be men and women who voluntarily
took all their clothes off as they approached
the screening area. By doing so, they would
be sure that nobody would touch them or pat
them down in any way. They'd be subject to a
visual inspection, and that's all. Unfortunately
they would have to strip in full view of all the
other passengers, because to give them a spe-
cial secluded area would be to show fa-
voritism.
A second group of passengers would be
called the TOUCHY-FEELIES. They would be
people who actually welcome the patdown
procedures, but who insist that they give the
TSA workers specific instructions on how to
do their job. Sample instructions would be
"Give a more forceful pat there, please, oh,
yes, one more time, maybe alternate between
your fingertips and your knuckles, oh, baby,
that's so good." A passenger would be able to
select either a male or female TSA worker to
do the patdown. Each patdown would have to
last at least five minutes, to ensure thorough-
ness and maximum enjoyment for all parties
concerned. There's no reason why airport
screening shouldn't be fun.
A third and final group would be the SCAN-
NER PUPPIES, passengers who agree to step
inside the full-scan cylinder and let the most
intimate dimensions of their bodies be pro-
jected on a screen viewed by a TSA inspector
seated in Hong Kong or Stockholm. This





Driver's Seat

would ensure anonymity for those passengers
who fear their physical outlines might be
viewed by TSA workers drinking wine in a
nearby screening room and shouting, "Hey,
that looks like Gladys from Largo!" or "I swear
that last image belongs to a guy I hooked up
with at the Clearwater Jazz Festival."
These are just a few ideas on how to over-
come the airport-scanning crisis. I'm sure
you all have a few of your own.
I've been undergoing a full-body patdown
at airports for about six years, ever since I
had a pacemaker installed in my chest. Some
of the inspections have been more thorough
than others, but at no time did I feel embar-
rassed or threatened by the procedure. My
dominant emotion was to feel pity for the TSA
men who were assigned to do the patdown.
Just imagine waking up each morning and
facing eight or more hours of running your
hands lightly over the bodies of complete
strangers, all the while apologizing to them
for having to do it.
Often I would try to lighten the moment by
telling the TSA guy the old Rodney Danger-
field joke in which he said, "If it weren't for
pickpockets, I wouldn't have any sex life at
all!" Sometimes the TSA man laughed, some-
times not. But at least I had tried.
The last time I flew out of Tampa Interna-
tional Airport, I went through both the full-


body patdown and the scan inside the cylin-
der that traces every last wrinkle and bulge
in your body. I don't know why both were
necessary, but I complied without complaint.
I'm as anti-authoritarian as the next guy, but
I tend to cooperate with federal employees in
uniform who are trying to help me live awhile
longer in safety.
As I write these words, on Nov. 17, there's
a lot of Internet chatter about staging a day-
long protest against scanners on the day be-
fore Thanksgiving. If it happens, I hope the
protest flops. At the very least, such a
demonstration would tend to add time and
confusion to innocent travelers whose only
goal is to fly home and join in the annual
family attack on a turkey.
If travelers can't stomach TSA security
rules, they can always take a bus. A bus trip
from Tampa to Little Rock will make airport
patdowns seem like a touch of heaven.
When I hear about travelers who feel violat-
ed by scanners that display detailed images of
their bodies, I wish I could send them to a sci-
ence-fiction world where scanners could in-
vade a person's mind and broadcast his/her
most intimate thoughts over a loudspeaker for
all to hear. That's the sort of gadget I would
revolt against. Until that day comes, I'll pa-
tiently put up with the current procedures.
One thought does bother me. As the gov-
ernment spends billions on screening airport
passengers, how much is being done to
screen luggage and other cargo items? If a
terrorist in Yemen can easily mail a package-
bomb to the USA aboard an airliner, why
should the bad guys even fool with arming
airline passengers?

FASTSIGNS celebrates
anniversary, relocates
CLEARWATER The Clearwater FASTSIGNS

Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. In addition to a new address, the
center also will receive an updated showroom and
floor plan to help welcome new customers.
The new center will boast a total of 3,300 square
feet, a 1,000-square-foot increase over their cur-
rent location. Because of its larger size, the new
site can accommodate an indoor vehicle bay, which
will make it possible to do vehicle wraps and letter-
ing regardless of the weather or amount of day-
light.
Because the move is taking place so close to the
Clearwater FASTSIGNS' 15th anniversary, the


team will host a grand re-opening and anniversary
event in the spring. The event will give community
members a chance to celebrate the center's success
while getting an inside look at its day-to-day opera-

Operation Christmas Child under way
LARGO The Westside Church of the Nazarene will serve as a col-
lection point for Operation Christmas Child.
Through Operation Christmas Child, Largo residents are helping
send shoe box gifts this year to more than 8 million children in 100
countries suffering from natural disaster, war, terrorism, disease,
famine and poverty. The shoe box gifts will be sorted and sent using
whatever means necessary sea containers, trucks, trains, air-
planes, boats, camels, even dog sleds to reach suffering children
around the world.
Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows
donors to "follow your box" to the destination country where it will
be hand-delivered to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and
find out what country they are delivered to, use the EZ Give dona-
tion form found at www.samaritanspurse.org. Print out the online
labels that include a bar-code as labels on your shoe boxes.
The local collection sites are Westside Church of the Nazarene,

Roadshow Comes to Pinellas Park Next Week!


By Jason Delong
Treasure Hunters Roadshow
STAFF WRITER

Clean out your attics, closets
and lock boxes, because
the Roadshow is coming to
Pinellas Park. Roadshow experts
will be in town examining
antiques, collectibles, gold and
silver.
While the Roadshow will accept
anything that's old, they will
be focusing on gold and silver
coins made before 1964, military
items, toys and trains, musical
instruments, pocket and wrist
watches. Scrap gold is expected
to be a popular category this week


"U.S. coins made before
1964 are most sought
after by collectors. Coins
made before 1964 are
90% silver and valuable
because of the silver
content or could be worth
even more if one happens
to be a rare date. "

due to soaring gold prices.
Expert buyers for the Roadshow
have noticed a tremendous
increase in the amount of gold
coming to the Roadshow and for
good reason. Record gold prices

on broken jewelry or jewelry they
don't wear anymore with our "fair


Got Gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles,
gold, silver, coins or just about anything that is old.


and honest" purchase offers.
The Roadshow encourages
anyone planning a visit to take
a minute and examine their
jewelry box or their lock box
at the bank and gather anything
that's gold. If a guest is not sure
if something is gold, bring it
anyway and the
Roadshow staff
will test it for free.
Other gold items
of interest include
gold coins, gold
ounces, gold proof
sets and dental
gold.
Other types of
items Roadshow
experts hope to
see include old
toys and train sets.
Archie Davis,
roadshow toy
expert spoke about
some of the top
toys getting great
offers. "Old tin
windup toys from
the late 1800's
through the 1960's
are in great demand
now." said Davis,
"Especially those
that are character
related. Mickey
Mouse, Donald Duck, the
Flintstones or any character toys
are sought. Old Buddy L toys
from the 1920's to 1960's are in


demand." Basically any toys made
before 1965 are wanted. Train
sets made by Lionel, American
Flyer, Marklin and others have
the potential to fetch high prices.
Davis also stressed, "Toys with
boxes and in mint condition bring
sensational prices. Most of the


toys that come to the Roadshow
are not in perfect shape but can
still bring good prices from
collectors."
When expert Tom Fuller was
asked what he enjoyed most
about working at the Roadshow,
he was quick to answer "Old


coins and paper currency. For as
long as I can remember I have been
fascinated with collecting coins.
I would go through the change in
my parents grocery store looking
for rare dates and errors. Once, I
found a silver quarter that I sold
for $300.00. Not bad for an 8 year
old."
Fuller went on to explain that any
U.S. coins made before 1964 are
most sought after by collectors.
Coins made before 1964 are 90%
silver and valuable because of the

representatives will be
available to assess and

next Monday through
Friday, in Pinellas Park. "

silver content or could be worth
even more if one happens to be
a rare date. "We help people sort
through their coins for unique
dates. We buy all types of coins
at the Roadshow from wheat
pennies to buffalo nickels, which
are valuable from one coin to an
entire truckload. See you at the
Roadshow." said Fuller.


Is your family attic
filled with old and
forgotten memories?;
Most pre-1964 bisque, china,
paper mche, wood, and wax
dolls are considered desirable
by collectors. If your doll has
original clothing, wigs, shoes and
undergarments, that increases its
value.
Many toy cars, robots, Tonka
and trains made before 1964 are
wanted by International Collectors
Association members as well.

Horoscopes
November 25, 2010

Capricorn
December 22 January 19
A tryst does not end well. Offer
your support, Capricorn, but
don't go out of your way. A whirl
in the kitchen turns out a flavor-
ful, palate-pleasing dish.

Aquarius
January 20 February 18
You make short work of a diffi-
cult task and receive many acco-
lades for your efforts. Treat
yourself to something nice,
Aquarius. A breakthrough oc-
curs at home.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
Menial chores take your mind
off a pressing matter and give
you time to gather your bearings,
Pisces. A stack of paperwork
holds the key to an auto dilem-
ma.

Aries
March 21 April 19
Thinking about calling it quits,
Aries? Think again. There is
more to be gained from the situa-
tion than you realize. A medical
crisis passes.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
Life is what you make of it,
Taurus, so get out there and
reach for the stars. A mentor will
help you along the way. Ro-
mance beckons to you.

Gemini
May 21 June 21
Too little too late, Gemini. You
didn't move fast enough, and
now you must face the conse-
quences. The mood lightens at
home with an addition.

Cancer
June 22 July 22
Caution, Cancer. What you in-
tend to say may not be what
comes out of your mouth. An an-
nouncement at work puts every-
one in a new frame of mind.

Leo
July 23 August 22
A friend requires some assis-
tance, but not too much. Be
careful that you don't overstep
your bounds, Leo. A happy-go-
lucky neighbor stops by for a
chat.

Virgo
August 23 September 22
Lost in thought these days,
Virgo? Don't worry about it. You
deserve some time to reflect
upon what has happened. Re-
member, every cloud has a silver
lining.

Libra
September 23 October 22
Colder temperatures are set-
ting in, giving you little time to
complete an outside repair. Get a
move on, Libra. The deal is
sealed on a project at work.

Scorpio
October 23 November 21
You're on fire, Scorpio. Ideas
are flying left and right, and you
can't find enough time to imple-
ment them. Coworkers jump in
to help. Thank them profusely.

Sagittarius
November 22 December 21
A mishap in the kitchen is no
reason to cry. Buck up, Sagittar-
ius, and try again. You will suc-
ceed with practice. A namesake
shares a juicy secret.

Opening this week

Cher and Aguilera team up for 'Burlesque;' Rapunzel lets down her hair in Disney's 'Tangled'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'127 Hours'
Genre: Action, drama and
sports
Cast: James Franco, Amber
Tamblyn, Kate Mara, Clemence
Poesy and Kate Burton
Director: Danny Boyle
Rated: R
"127 Hours" is the new film
from Danny Boyle, the Acade-
my Award winning director of
2008's Best Picture, "Slumdog
Millionaire."
"127 Hours" is the true story
of mountain climber Aron Ral-
ston's (James Franco) remark-
able adventure to save himself
after a falling boulder crashes
on his arm and traps him in an
isolated slot canyon in Utah.
Throughout his journey, Ral-
ston recalls friends, lovers (Cle-
mence Poesy), family, and the
two hikers (Amber Tamblyn
and Kate Mara) he met before
his accident. Over the next five
days Ralston battles the ele-
ments and his own demons to
finally discover he has the
courage and the wherewithal to
extricate himself by any means
necessary, descend a 65 foot
wall and hike over eight miles
before he is finally rescued.
Told with a dynamic narrative
structure, "127 Hours" is a vis-
ceral, thrilling story that will
take an audience on a never
before experienced journey and
prove what we can do when we
choose life.

'Burlesque'
Genre: Drama and musical
Cast: Cher, Christina Aguil-
era, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet
and Julianne Hough
Director: Steven Antin
Rated: PG-13
Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a
small-town girl with a big voice
who escapes hardship and an
uncertain future to follow her
dreams to Los Angeles.
After stumbling upon The
Burlesque Lounge, a majestic
but ailing theater that is home
to an inspired musical revue,
Ali lands a job as a cocktail
waitress from Tess (Cher), the
club's proprietor and headliner.
Burlesque's outrageous cos-
tumes and bold choreography
enrapture the young ingenue,
who vows to perform there one
day.
Soon enough, Ali builds a
friendship with a featured
dancer (Julianne Hough), finds
an enemy in a troubled, jealous
performer (Kristen Bell), and
garners the affection of Jack
(Cam Gigandet), a bartender
and fellow musician. With the
help of a sharp-witted stage
manager (Stanley Tucci) and
gender-bending host (Alan
Cumming), Ali makes her way
from the bar to the stage. Her
spectacular voice restores The
Burlesque Lounge to its former
glory, though not before a
charismatic entrepreneur (Eric
Dane) arrives with an enticing
proposal.

'Love & Other Drugs'
Genre: Comedy and adapta-
tion
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne
Hathaway, Josh Gad, Judy


Greer and Hank Azaria
Director: Edward Zwick
Rated: R
Maggie is an alluring free
spirit who won't let anything,
including a formidable personal
challenge, tie her down.
But she meets her match in
Jamie Randall, whose relent-
less and nearly infallible charm
serve him well with the ladies
and in the cutthroat world of
pharmaceutical sales. Maggie
and Jamie's evolving relation-
ship takes them both by sur-
prise, as they find themselves
under the influence of the ulti-
mate drug: love.

'Faster'
Genre: Action, drama and
thriller
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Billy
Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace,
Oliver Jackson-Cohen and
Moon Bloodgood
Director: George Tillman Jr.
Rated: R
After 10 years in prison,
Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a
singular focus to avenge the
murder of his brother during
the botched bank robbery that
led to his imprisonment.
Now a free man with a deadly
to-do list in hand, he's finally
on his mission ... but with two
men on his trail a veteran cop
(Billy Bob Thornton) just days
from retirement, and a young
egocentric hitman (Oliver Jack-
son-Cohen) with a flair for the
art of killing and a newfound
worthy opponent. The hunter is
also the hunted. It's a do or die
race to the list's finish as the
mystery surrounding his broth-
er's murder deepens, and new
details emerge along the way
hinting that Driver's list may be
incomplete.

'Tangled'
Genre: Animated action, fam-
ily and musical
Cast: Mandy Moore, Zachary
Levi, Donna Murphy, Brad
Garrett, Jeffrey Tambor, M.C.
Gainey, Paul F. Tompkins, Ron
Perlman and Richard Kiel
Director: Nathan Greno and
Byron Howard
Rated: PG
Walt Disney Pictures pres-
ents "Tangled," one of the most
hilarious, hair-raising tales
ever told.
When the kingdom's most
wanted and most charming -
bandit, Flynn Rider (voice of
Zachary Levi), hides out in a
mysterious tower, he's taken
hostage by Rapunzel (voice of
Mandy Moore), a beautiful and
feisty tower-bound teen with 70
feet of magical, golden hair.
Flynn's curious captor, who's
looking for her ticket out of the
tower where she's been locked
away for years, strikes a deal
with the handsome thief, and
the unlikely duo sets off on an
action-packed escapade, com-
plete with a super-cop horse
(named Maximus), an over-pro-
tective chameleon (named Pas-
cal), and a gruff gang of pub
thugs.
Also featured in the talented
vocal ensemble is two-time
Tony Award winner Donna
Murphy as Mother Gothel. Ron
Perlman lends his voice to a
Stabbington Brother, one of
Flynn's double-crossed part-
ners in crime, and Jeffrey Tam-
bor and Brad Garrett provide
the voices of two of the thugs
Flynn and Rapunzel encounter


along the way.


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

'The Legend of
Pale Male'
Genre: Documentary
Director: Frederic Lilien
Not rated
This is the true account of
one of the most surprising and
remarkable love stories in the
history of New York.
It begins in 1993, when a
young man from Belgium look-
ing to change his life has an
unexpected encounter in Cen-
tral Park. He meets a hawk. Not
just any hawk, but a wild Red-
tail, a fierce predator that has
not lived in the city for almost a
hundred years. Compelled to
follow this extraordinary crea-
ture, he buys a video camera
and sets out to track the hawk.
Little does he know that the
journey will take him almost 20
years and lead him down many
trails of life, death, birth, hope
and redemption.
Affectionately known to New
Yorkers as Pale Male, the hawk
becomes a magnificent obses
sion and a metaphor for tri-
umph against all odds. His
nest, perched on a posh Fifth
Avenue co-op, starts out as a
novel curiosity to a handful of
avid birdwatchers but becomes
an international tourist destina-
tion a place of pilgrimage.
Then, on a December after-
noon without warning, in the
space of half an hour, the
building dismantles Pale Male's
beloved nest. In a wingbeat,
media from around the world
assemble on Fifth Avenue to
cover the unprecedented
protest. Gathering behind Pale
Male is an army of birdwatch-
ers, movie stars, poets, chil-
dren, dogs, and late night
comedy show hosts. What un-
folds next, as they say, could
only happen in New York.

'The King's Speech'
Genre: Drama and biopic
Cast: Colin Firth, Geoffrey
Rush, Helena Bonham Carter,
Jennifer Ehle and Guy Pearce
Director: Tom Hooper
Rated: R
After the death of his father
King George V (Michael Gam-
bon) and the scandalous abdi-
cation of King Edward VIII (Guy
Pearce), Bertie (Colin Firth) who
has suffered from a debilitating
speech impediment all his life,
is suddenly crowned King
George VI of England.
With his country on the brink
of war and in desperate need of a
leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Helena
Bonham Carter), the future
Queen Mother, arranges for her
husband to see an eccentric
speech therapist, Lionel Logue
(Geoffrey Rush). After a rough
start, the two delve into an un-
orthodox course of treatment and

eventually form an unbreakable
bond. With the support of Logue,
his family, his government and
Winston Churchill (Timothy
Spall), the King will overcome his
stammer and deliver a radio-ad-
dress that inspires his people and
unites them in battle.
