OKs noise rules
Following months of debate, conces-

dian Rocks Beach has what some are
calling a precedent-setting noise ordi-
nance.
The ordinance sets a limit on amplified
music at 55 decibels between the hours
of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. and 60 decibels
from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

red light cameras
The council voted 3-2 to have City At-
torney Pam Akin draft a proposed ordi-
nance to authorize the cameras.
Councilman Bill Jonson said that red-
light running is "an epidemic in this
area" and he dismissed opponents'
claims that the cameras are an unconsti-
tutional form of entrapment.
"With proper notice, I don't see how
it's entrapment," he said. "You're going
through a red light for Pete's sake!"

LARGO The number of visitors to Eagle Lake
Park since it opened March 30 exceeds expecta-
tions.
'The numbers are larger than we anticipated
- making this the third most visited park in
Pinellas County," said Pinellas County Commis-
sion Chair Karen Seel, in an e-mail.
County Parks and Conservation Resources
Director Paul Cozzie said the 163-acre park, lo-
cated at 1800 Keene Road, is on track to have
more than 1.2 million visits in the first full year
of operation, "behind only Fort De Soto and Fred
Howard parks" in visits.
From April through October, the park had
about 615,000 visits.
"I believe that the central location, natural as-
sets, and the fishing all contribute to our citi-
zens attending this wonderful park," Seel said.
V.~t?;-~ !~;L


Visitors to the park jog and walk on its trails,
observe wildlife and relax as their children romp
in the playground.
'This is a great place to enjoy an afternoon,"
said park attendee Ruth Tripp of Clearwater.
She and her mother, Anne Schulert, also of
Clearwater, were taking in the sun on a recent
fall afternoon.
"I recently received a Pacemaker and cannot
drive any longer," Schulert said. "So my daugh-
ter brings me here to enjoy the fresh air."
Some people just come to enjoy an afternoon
away from the demands of daily life. Such was
the case of Anessy Caban and Nick Goc, both of
Clearwater.
"We've known one another since middle
school," Goc said. Both are University of South
Florida students. He is majoring in environmen-

Treasure hunter


donates artifacts


to local museum


By WAYNE AYERS

LARGO Jim Leatherwood is
convinced there is an as-yet-undis-
covered shipwreck just off our
shores. The treasure hunter from
Largo backs his claim with dozens
of ship-related artifacts, discovered
while beachcombing with a metal
detector.
His finds include large keel pins,
used in building wooden ships.
They connect the wood and keep
the ship together. He shows a
heavy pin that is bent, evidence it
has been under stress. 'That tells
you it has been in a wreck," said
Leatherwood.
Weighty spikes, bolts and wedges
were all part of a ship's outfitting,
and further indications of a nearby
shipwreck, according to Leather-
wood. A brass nail would have
tacked down the metal sheeting on
a boat, while a pulley was connect-
ed to the rigging.
A piece of chain showed a string
cheese pattern, indicating a long-


ago blacksmith had worked it.
Dainty rings of ancient vintage,
likely part of the ship's cargo, carry
distinct markings. A cat's head, two
"sea monster" dragons facing each
other. One ring appears to have
been made from a teaspoon.
A piece of shell/coral conglomer-
ate contains the remnant of a din-
ner plate, with a design still
discernible. Several nails in the
cluster suggest that the plate was
in a nailed box. Another conglomer-
ate piece is embedded with a frag-
ment of wood, nearly petrified from
age, which was part of a ship.
These are very rare finds, Leather-
wood said, which his metal detector
picked up because of the iron nails
present.
Leatherwood held up a piece of
coal. There is no natural coal in the
ocean, he said, so its presence
would mean a steamship had been
nearby. "(The coal) would be the
first thing that would turn me on to

Police seek suspect in woman's shooting death


By TOM GERMOND
LARGO A woman who was shot by a man driv-
ing into the parking lot of a convenience store died
Nov. 30 at about 3:30 p.m., police reports said.
The suspect, identified as Larry Joe Jerry Jr., 26,
remains at large. He is described as a black male
who is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs between
260 and 300 pounds. He may have gold jeweled
teeth.
At this point the investigation has led police to be-
lieve that the suspect drove into the parking lot of
the Rainbow Food Mart and shot several rounds at
a gold car carrying four females and a young child.
Three of the females from the gold car had exited
the vehicle and were walking into the food mart.
When the shooting began, the driver of the gold ve-
hicle fled with the young child. The other three fe-
males were outside of the vehicle and attempted to
run into the food mart. Two of the females made it


into the store. The third female
was shot in her lower torso area.
The suspect fled the scene after
shooting several rounds from what
appeared to be a black semi-auto-
matic pistol. The suspect and the
victims knew each other, although
the exact motive behind the shoot-
ing is unclear. i
The woman who died has been .
identified as Annie Marie Conyers,
26, of Clearwater.
The Largo Police Department
has charges on the suspect for one
count of homicide and four counts
of attempted homicide, reports Larry
said. arryjoejerryj
Several other law enforcement
agencies are cooperating with Largo police in the
search for the suspect, including the U.S. Marshals

The vehicle was located in Clear-

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Amazing Transformations with Full-Mouth
Reconstruction
Sometimes I see smiles that no one has seen for a long time. They are hidden,
suppressed, covered and often really painful. These are troubled smiles smiles that
time, neglect or accidents have taken their toll smiles that are unattractive, decrease
self-esteem, affect overall wellness and nutrition and cause
all kinds of other health issues. Sometimes these patients
have been too embarrassed to see a dentist for fear of being
judged or criticized.
I never do that. I think these smiles deserve an extra
measure of compassion and respect. I'm just so excited
when someone finally comes to me with a broken smile and
asks if I can fix it. Why? Because usually I can! Not just so
it looks good, but so that it functions and feels the way
nature intended it to as well. I call it full-mouth
reconstruction, but it really is rejuvenation like no other.
Like anything, nothing lasts forever. Unfortunately, this applies to our bodies and our
teeth. All of our adult teeth are usually in place before the teenage years. So as you can
see these teeth need to do the job for many decades. The good news is that people are
living longer and longer. But this means that as things wear out they should be repaired,
rebuilt, or replaced. It is only logical to understand that this extends to one's teeth.
Full-mouth reconstruction enhances the appearance of the smile and corrects
imperfections in bite position. Combining the art of cosmetic dentistry with the
technology of neuromuscular dentistry, full-mouth reconstruction lets you finally have a
smile that is both beautiful and comfortable. With the instruments and techniques of
neuromuscular dentistry we can find the ideal jaw position for comfort and aesthetics.
The treatment will often include the application of a full set of crowns and other
restorations such as veneers. But it also may utilize orthodontics, implants, and
removable dentures. This portion of the reconstruction can begin when your jaw has
finally come to its ideal position. The use of porcelain crowns and veneers repair and
raise your teeth into the optimal position and keeps them there.
And when the process is complete, that's when we celebrate the beginning of a brand
new, young, fresh and comfortable smile. It is one of the happiest moments for me as a
dentist and my patients say it can be life-changing.
Why hide your smile or live with pain another day? Call me at 727.586.1955 to
schedule a complimentary consult or visit aboutsmilesdental.com to read what our
patients are saying about us. 2260 West Bay Drive, Largo.

Thanksgiving at its finest families in need get meals


By CHARY SOUTHMAYD

LARGO For those both on the
giving and receiving end of a
Thanksgiving holiday meal min-
istry, blessings were abundant on
the day before Thanksgiving.
Members of the Pinellas County
Sheriffs Office, Pinellas Suncoast
Fire and Rescue, and volunteers
from Calvary Episcopal Church in
Indian Rocks Beach gathered at
the Publix supermarket on Indian
Rocks Road Nov. 24 to load up
meals and deliver them to families
in need.
The meals, which were paid for
by donations from Calvary parish-
ioners and the Indian Rocks
Beach Rotary Club, were provided
at a discount, courtesy of Publix.
They were neatly packaged and di-
vided up among the participating
PCSO squad cars for delivery to
selected public housing residents
in Ridgecrest, High Point and
French Villas.
Community policing officers
from the PCSO helped to choose
the families most in need, who are
treated to meals at Thanksgiving,
Christmas and Easter through
Calvary's holiday meals ministry.
In all, 55 families enjoyed turkey,
stuffing, green bean casserole,
bread, apple juice, and desserts
this Thanksgiving.
Eagerly awaiting their arrival at
the Greater Ridgecrest Area Youth
Development Initiative Center at
Rainbow Village were Traci
Blankumsee, 35, and her four
children, who live in Rainbow Vil-
lage.
'This means everything. It's a

blessing and we'll start cooking
tonight," she said. "I'm unem-
ployed, working on my resume,
and looking for a job through the
GRAYDI Center," explained
Blankumsee, who hopes to find
work as a certified nursing assis-
tant. "I volunteer here at the
GRAYDI Center."
Waiting inside to pick up her
meal was 86-year-old Mary Pon-
der, a mother of 10, who lives at
Rainbow Village with her grandson
and caregiver, Robert. Ponder,
who has difficulty walking, was
helped around by her neighbor
and friend, Jackie Smith, who was
picking up a meal with her 3-year-
old granddaughter, Alexiciona
Davis. Both women expressed
gratitude for the dinner they would
soon be enjoying.
Grateful for the opportunity to
participate in the holiday meal de-
livery was Deputy William Lawson,
a community policing officer in
Rainbow Village, who has been
with the sheriffs office for five
years.
"This is Thanksgiving at its
finest," Lawson said. "I am giving

Officials forming team to address sexual violence


By TOM GERMOND

LARGO -Amy Hawthorne, a county health educator,
finds that fourth and fifth graders like to share a lot of
different stories about bullying, a subject that is receiv-
ing nationwide attention.
She tells them that they are not all bullies nor victims
of bullies.
"But we are all bystanders," Hawthorne said. 'Then I
tell them ... it takes one person, it just takes one by-
stander to step in and say, Why are you doing that?
Why are you bullying? I don't think that's a good idea.'
The behavior usually stops within 10 seconds," she said.
Hawthome presented her "Respect Me!" curriculum
with other government officials who are trying to form a
community action team that will meet quarterly to ad-
dress sexual violence.
'We would like to put an end to domestic violence at
sometime in our lifetimes. And that means we have to
start early. Most of us are tired of cleaning up after do-



Three arrested
for attempted murder
PALM HARBOR Three suspects were arrest-
ed Nov. 29 after allegedly shooting into a vehicle
in Palm Harbor, according to a Pinellas County
Sheriffs report.
A sheriffs deputy was on duty in his marked
cruiser driving west on Tampa Road approaching
Arbor Glenn Drive in Palm Harbor at about 2:20
a.m. when he saw a blue Ford Focus traveling
east on Tampa Road at high speed. As the
deputy started to make a U-turn to go after the
car, it came to an abrupt stop. The driver, Dusty
Smith, 21 of New Port Richey, told the deputy
that they were being chased and shot at by sus-
pects in a white Chevrolet Lumina. As Smith was
telling his story, the Lumina passed by east on
Tampa Road and then quickly turned south on
Arbor Glenn Drive, the report said.
The deputy radioed for assistance, and shortly
afterwards, the Lumina was stopped by respond-
ing deputies at Solon Avenue and Belcher Road
in Dunedin.
The stories from the victim and the suspects
are conflicting, the report said. The victims said
they do not know the suspects and do not know
why the suspects were shooting at them, and
this was completely random, the report said. The
suspects claim they are acquainted with the vic-
tims and that the incident is drug related.
Benjamin Ducharme, 36, of Homosassa was
the front right passenger in the suspect vehicle
and admitted to being the one who shot at the
victims and owning the .45 caliber semi-auto-


mestic violence," said Mayor Pat Gerard, at a meeting at
City Hall Nov. 30.
The "Respect Me!" project is working with children in
grades 4-8 during before and after-school programs. The
project strives to increase the children's skills in building
healthy relationships based on respect.
Largo was selected for the project, in part, because
the city is in the middle of Pinellas County, said Wendy
Loomas, the injury and violence prevention program
manager for the Pinellas County Health Department.
"A lot of the demographics in Largo are similar to the
county as a whole so it provides a way to have a model
for other cities in our county," she said.
"Respect Me!" is part of a statewide initiative funded
by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Preven-
tion. It is a partnership between the city of Largo and
Pinellas County Health Department.
'We are obviously trying to reach the parents. We are
trying to reach the teachers. We are trying to get into the
schools," Hawthorne said.


matic handgun used in the shooting that
deputies found in the Lumina, the report said.
Amanda McElmurray, 19, of Lecanto was the
driver of the Lumina and continued to drive after
the victims before, during and after the shooting,
the report said. Steven LeBlanc, 31, of
Brooksville was the rear passenger who allegedly
had knowledge of what was about to occur.
The incident remains under investigation as
deputies continue to piece together the events
and collect additional evidence.
Antonio was arrested for attempted felony
murder and carrying a concealed weapon. He
was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu
of $100,500 bond. McElmurray was charged
with attempted felony murder and was being
held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of
$100,000 bond. Ducharme was charged with at-
tempted felony murder and carrying a concealed
firearm and was being held at the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jail in lieu of $120,000 bond.

Three suspects at large after
armed home invasion
CLEARWATER The Clearwater Police De-
partment is looking for three suspects in con-
nection to an armed home invasion that
happened at 6:21 a.m. on Nov. 25, according to
a police report.
Clearwater Police received a call from East
Meadow Oak Drive of a suspicious vehicle at the
2000 block of Stockwood Drive, the report said.
As police arrived, three suspects fled the area
and tried to ram a police cruiser at Wildwood


Largo Police Chief John Carroll said "any opportunity
we have to get in at this level ... is a great thing as far as
I'm concerned."
Carroll said that one in six women and one in 33 men
are victims of sexual assault sometime in their lifetime.
"During the first six months of this year, in the city of
Largo, the police department has investigated 19 sexual
batteries," he said.
Eighteen of the victims were females and one was a
young boy, he said.
'The suspects in those cases ranged in age from 18 to
56, and all of them were male," Carroll said.
According to national statistics, about 40 percent of
sexual assault cases are reported to law enforcement.
"So that leaves 60 percent out there we're not even
hearing about," Carroll said.
Unfortunately, law enforcement officials see cases
after the crimes have occurred and try to "put the pieces
back together."
The police department will be handing out "respect ci-


Drive and Landmark. A vehicle pursuit was ini-
tiated which ended in St. Petersburg when the
suspects bailed from the vehicle and fled on
foot. The suspects are still at large.
During the investigation, police learned that
three suspects committed an armed home inva-
sion robbery at the residence. They were driven
there by an acquaintance of the homeowner who
was being held against his will at gunpoint, the
report said. The suspects forced the victim to
write a check for a few hundred dollars. Appar-
ently the victim owed the suspects money, the
report said.
The first suspect is described as a black male
known as "Slim," who has a medium build,
clean shaven, short hair, was wearing a red
shirt and had a gold colored semi-automatic
handgun. The second suspect is a black male
between 6 feet and 6 feet, 3 inches tall with a
medium build, thin line-style beard and was
wearing dark clothing. The last suspect is a
black male between 6 feet and 6 feet, 3 inches
tall with a thin build and was wearing dark
clothing.

Grandma arrested
for manslaughter
CLEARWATER A St. Petersburg grandma is
charged in a Clearwater 1-year-old's death, ac-
cording to a Clearwater Police report.
Andrea Wooten, 42, was baby-sitting the vic-
tim when a friend came by to visit, the report
said. After she answered the door, she immedi-
ately went to the bathroom and carried out the


stations" to children they witness helping friends, work-
ing through problems without violence or showing re-
spect to one another.
The community action team will look at six goals and
determine what it can do to help reach them. Officials
are seeking business and faith leaders and others who
are influential with adults and children to serve on the
teams.
Among those goals are to increase awareness of sexu-
al violence prevention across the lifespan, to increase so-
cial norms and address policies that support gender
equality, respect and safety for men, women and chil-
dren.
Other goals include increasing funding for sexual vio-
lence prevention and to improve access to sexual vio-
lence prevention and intervention data.
Members of the team also will be asked to help plan
activities, help with printing costs for materials for work-
shops and other activities and find audiences to speak
to about the project.



unresponsive victim, who is her grandson. The
friend whose name will not be released, as he
is a witness called 911. Clearwater Fire and
Rescue responded and began medical care. The
child was taken to Morton Plant Hospital, where
he was pronounced dead.
An investigation revealed that the child was
left in the bathtub unattended for anywhere be-
tween 30 minutes and two hours, the report
said. Wooten showed signs of intoxication dur-
ing the interview with detectives immediately fol-
lowing the incident. She submitted blood for
analysis, and lab results came back positive for
Alprazolam.
An arrest warrant was obtained on Nov. 22,
charging her with one count of aggravated
manslaughter of a child. The warrant was
served on Nov. 25 by the St. Petersburg Police
Department. She was being held at the Pinellas
County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Grenade found in home
DUNEDIN A Dunedin resident found a
grenade in her garage while cleaning it on Nov.
26, according to a Pinellas County Sheriffs re-
port.
The sheriffs office and the Hillsborough Coun-
ty Sheriffs Bomb Squad responded at 1:30 p.m.,
and the bomb squad collected the item for X-ray,
review and disposal. No one was hurt. The
homeowner said the grenade could have been in
the garage for at least 20, possibly 30 years. She
thought it might have been the property of her
deceased husband.

tal science and she in broadcast journalism.
"The park is midway between our respective
homes," Caban said. "We live in opposite ends of
Clearwater."
The park's entrance is on Keene Road, but it also
is bordered by McMullen, Belleair and Rosary roads
and Lake Avenue. It is home to squirrels, birds, tor-
toises, water turtles and other animal species.
There are six picnic shelters built to resemble
pole barns, three restrooms, a dog park, a paved
recreation trail, boardwalks over restored wetlands
and fishing docks.
"We like to bring the baby here," said Kristin Trez-
za of Clearwater as she and her husband, Michael,


watched their smiling toddler, Trinity, 1, enjoy a
swing ride. "It's really a very, very nice park."
The land on which the park is situated once be-
longed to the Taylor Family who were early Pinellas
County pioneers. Once used for cattle and citrus
groves, orange trees can still be seen.
It cost $15.2 million to purchase the land and an-
other $8.3 million for improvements. About $7.2
million came from Penny for Pinellas funds,
$565,610 in Florida Recreation Development Assis-
tance Program grants, and another $761,750 from
the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
For more information on the park and other
county parks visit www.pinellascounty.org./park.

ARTIFACTS, from page 1A


a site," he said.
Numerous clues, such as the blacksmithing
marks and nail head style, suggest that many of
the items he has found date from the 1800s.
Leatherwood said he has probably walked a
thousand miles along the local beaches, from Pass-
A-Grille to Clearwater, in his treasure hunts. But
his shipwreck discoveries have all been concentrat-
ed in one area Indian Rocks Beach and Indian
Shores. And they have mostly turned up during
and after storms.
"When there's a storm, that's when you find the
most," said Marlene Leatherwood, Jim's wife. He
added, "You need to go out in really bad weather to
find these things." Even with the waves stirring
things up, the items are usually buried under the
sand, so finding them is not an easy task. Of
course, the metal detector also turns up many un-
wanted items like bottle caps, so perseverance is re-
quired to locate the "keepers."
Finding numerous ship-related artifacts of a sim-
ilar age in one concentrated area is convincing evi-
dence that points to the presence of a nearby
shipwreck, Leatherwood said.
"I believe there's an old ship out there," he said
with conviction.
That belief has been backed up by knowledgeable
members of Leatherwood's metal detecting club, as
well as associates at Odyssey Marine Exploration in
Tampa, salvagers of sunken ships around the
world.


Leatherwood brought his first find, an encrusted
bar, to a metal detecting buddy shortly after he
took up the hobby seven years ago. "I asked him
what it was, and he told me to clean it up and show
it to him again."
'That's a keel pin, from an old ship," the man
said, after viewing the scrubbed down version. The
discovery launched Leatherwood, a retired teacher,
on what would become his career hobby collecting
shipwreck relics.
Cleanup of the artifacts is a tough job, Leather-
wood has found. "Many of the iron pieces are really
encrusted and it takes a lot of work to get the en-
crustation material off," he said.
Most shoreline treasure hunters regard iron as a
discard, preferring to collect coins and lost jewelry
that are of more monetary value and easier to pro-
cess.
One group that considers the shipwreck artifacts
priceless is the Indian Rocks Historical Society and
Museum. Leatherwood is donating his collection to
the museum.
"I found these things at Indian Rocks Beach and
they belong to the community," said Leatherwood,
who recently became a volunteer docent at the mu-
seum.
Museum exhibit coordinator Jan Ockunzzi said a
shipwreck exhibit would fit nicely into their plans to
expand the museum next year.
"I'm really excited about having a new exhibit
closely tied to our coastal heritage, with artifacts
found on our beach," Ockunzzi said. 'This will add
a new dimension to our museum's collection."

Unemployment rate drops to 11.5 percent in Pinellas


By SUZETTE PORTER

Unemployment is down in Pinellas County, ac-
cording to the latest numbers from the Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
The county's not-seasonally-adjusted unem-
ployment rate in October was 11.5 percent, down
from 12 percent in September. AWI's October re-
port showed that 51,386 people were unemployed
compared to 53,957 the month before.
The state's not-seasonally-adjusted rate for Oc-
tober was 11.6 percent. The national rate was 9.0
percent.
Another bright spot in the report was that the
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan
Statistical Area did not hold the No. 1 spot for job
losses in October as it did in September. That dis-
tinction went to Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-
Deerfield Beach followed by Palm Bay-Melbourne,
Titusville. The local area came in third for most
jobs lost at 1,700.


State officials are encouraged
with what they say are signs of
continuing improvements in
the job market.

Liberty County has the lowest unemployment
rate in the state at 6.9 percent. Hendry County
has the highest with 18.3 percent. Pinellas ranks
in the middle of the state's 67 counties at No. 32.
State officials are encouraged with what they
say are signs of continuing improvements in the
job market.
"While Florida's unemployment rate did not de-
crease this month, we continue to see positive
signs of stabilization and growth," said AWI Direc-
tor Cynthia R. Lorenzo. "In addition to showing
improved over-the-year job creation, Florida post-
ed the largest decrease in the country last week in


the number of people who filed for first-time un-
employment benefits. Combined with increasing
numbers of job postings online, this is encourag-
ing news for our job seekers and our economy."
The AWI report said that Florida's annual job
growth rate is up 0.5 percent, representing an in-
crease of 35,700 jobs from October 2009 the
strongest over-the-year job growth in the state
since May 2007. Nationally, the number of jobs is
up 0.6 percent over the year.
Other signs of improvement include an increase
in online job ads. According to the report released
Nov. 19, the October 2010 job postings represent
the highest level of demand since July 2008,
when Help Wanted OnLine showed 235,479 open-
ings.
Officials said the Florida Consumer Confidence
Index also was showing signs of improvement
with a six-point increase to 74, the highest level in
six months, according to a new University of
Florida survey.


Consumer confidence among seniors, age 60
and up, rose by 11 percent in October, compared
to a two-point increase for the rest of the state's
population, according to an Oct. 26 report.
Chris McCarty, director of UFs survey research
center, said he was surprised at the senior spike.
'This is an odd result when the biggest news for
seniors during October was the announcement on
Oct. 15 of no cost-of-living adjustment to Social
Security," he said.
McCarty said the surge in optimism could be
attributed to historically low interest rates, bar-
gains on condominiums, some enthusiasm over
political candidates, and at least a partial morato-
rium on foreclosures to make sure banks are fol-
lowing proper paperwork procedures.
Industries gaining the most jobs thus far this
year are private education, health services, and
leisure and hospitality. Industries losing the most
jobs in 2010 are construction, financial activities
and information.

Officials celebrate Pinellas Trail's 20th anniversary


By SUZETTE PORTER

In the beginning, it stretched
from Taylor Park in Largo to the
Seminole City Hall Park and
covered about five miles.
Twenty years later, the Fred
Marquis Pinellas Trail is 37
miles long and can be used to
travel from Tarpon Springs to
St. Petersburg. The next goal is
to complete the Pinellas Trail
Loop, linking the county east to
west, by 2020.
On Saturday, Dec. 4, Pinellas
Trails Inc., a citizens' volunteer
group, is hosting a 20th an-
niversary celebration at 10 a.m.
at Taylor Park, 1100 Eighth
Ave. SW, in Largo.

Bob Evans restaurants are

restaurants also will donate a
percentage of customer's bills
that day to Pinellas Trails Inc.
for those who mention the
Pinellas Trail.
Fred Marquis and others in-
strumental to the trails success
will speak. Several dignitaries
are scheduled to appear.
According to Scott Daniels,
president of the volunteers' or-
ganization, the idea for the
Pinellas Trail got its start due to
a series of events and the vision
and support by several key peo-
ple.
It was 1983, and the county
was trying to figure out what to

do with a 34-mile corridor of
abandoned CSX railroad right of
way, which had been purchased
by the Florida Department of
Transportation.
Bert Valery's son had been
killed when he was struck by a
car while riding his bicycle
home from work. Soon there-
after, Valery helped form the
Metropolitan Planning Organi-
zations Bicycle Advisory Com-
mittee, which worked with the
Pedestrian Safety Committee to
improve safety for people riding
bikes, walking and jogging.
Daniels praised Valery's work
to making the trail what it is
today.
"He took his grief and turned

it into something positive,"
Daniels said. "He was a leader
who got the concept going to
create a place for safe bicycling
in Pinellas. He wanted to do
something positive for other
families to create a safe place
for families and children."
In 1984, Valery's Bicycle Ad-
visory Committee proposed
using the old railroad track
right-of-way as a bike route. In
1988, Pinellas Trails Inc. formed
and the rest is 20 years of "re-
markable" history, Daniels said.
The trail committee came up
with the idea of expanding the
trail to a linear park concept,
Daniels said. The next step was
seeking public support, which

he said came easy.
'The committee of volunteers
included school teachers,
bankers and business people
who had the knowledge needed
to turn the tracks into a safe
trail for transportation and
recreation," he said.
He explained the linear park
concept, saying that since the
beginning, the plan had been to
link the trail with conservation
areas municipal and county
parklands.
In 1989, Pinellas County
commissioners approved the
Pinellas Trail project and allo-
cated $1.5 million to build a 15-
mile segment. Voters approved
the Penny for Pinellas sale tax
at a referendum, providing
funding to complete 35 miles of
trail.
In 1990, two trail preview
sites were built near Seminole
City Park and at Curlew Road
and Alternate 19 in Dunedin.
On Dec. 1, the first five miles
were completed from Taylor
Park to Seminole City Park. In
1991, the first trail overpass
opened over Ulmerton Road in
Largo.
Looking at a timeline of trail
projects shows openings of new
sections and overpasses almost
every year thereafter.
Among the major milestones
is the local trail's designation as
a National Recreation Trail by
the United States Department of
Interior, the National Park Ser-
vice in 2003. In 2008, the trail
was formally inducted into the
Rail-Trail Hall of Fame.
Daniels praised the coopera-
tion by municipal and county
governments and the partner-
ship between those govern-
ments and the private sector
that he says has been nothing
but positive.
He attributes that cooperation
and partnership as the impetus
behind the vision and drive to
take what was once an aban-
doned railroad track and turn it
into something now enjoyed by
more than 75,000 pedestrians,
bicyclists and skaters.
"And this positive enthusiasm
continues 20 years later as we
enter our second decade," he
said.
The trail has been a win-win
for everyone, he said.
Studies show that properties
near the trail have increased
values. Businesses near the
trail do well, and some have
even paid to build a trail access
to their stores. The trail has
been a big boost to tourism.
Daniels said while the beach-
es are the No. 1 draw for
tourism in the county, the trail
comes in at No. 2.
The county is responsible for
the maintenance of the trail.
Construction is paid for by
Penny for Pinellas money from
the county and municipalities.

Pinellas Trail Inc. has provided
benches, bike racks and water
fountains. He said other organi-
zations have joined in, making
donations to improve the trail's
amenities.
Trail safety has always been
of paramount importance,
Daniels said. One of the newest
improvements is an emergency
response system with decals
that enable emergency response
vehicles to pinpoint the exact lo-
cation of an incident. The bright
yellow decals are adhered di-
rectly on the trail surface about
200-feet apart. Each has a
unique location number and
provides contact numbers to re-
port maintenance problems.
The decals begin at Demens
Landing in downtown St. Pe-
tersburg and continue east of
U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs
where the trail ends at Melon
Street and Keystone Road.
The trail is open from sunrise
to sunset. The Pinellas County
Sheriffs Office, assisted by
members of the Pinellas Trail
Auxiliary, is responsible for its
safety. Safety rules include:
Alcoholic beverages are pro-
hibited
Pedestrians and handi-
capped have the right of way.
Wheelchairs are asked to keep
to the pedestrian lanes. The
only motorized vehicles allowed
are electric handicap
wheelchairs.
Bicyclists are required to
obey all traffic controls and sig-
nals; are not permitted to wear
headphones at any time; and if
under age 16, they must wear a
helmet. Electric bicycles are not
allowed.
Bicyclists and skaters
should obey posted speed lim-
its. No racing, race training or
pace lines are allowed. Skaters
should use bike lanes, and both
skaters and cyclists should give
an audible warning when pass-
ing.
Horses are not allowed on
the trail. Pets must be kept on a
6-foot leash, and pet owners
must pick up after their pets.
For problems with animals on
the trail, call Animal Services at
582-2600. The park ranger's
phone number is 582-2100. For
information on bus routes near
the trail, call the Pinellas Sun-
coast Transit Authority at 540-
1900.
Daniels said more volunteers
are welcome. Auxiliary members
serve as trail rangers and are
required to donate 12 hours a
month walking or riding along
the trail. He said they wear uni-
forms and receive training from
the county. For more informa-
tion, visit www.pinellascounty
.org/trailgd/default.htm or call
464-8200.
When the Pinellas Trail con-
cept was born, the practice of
turning old rail lines into trails
was new, Daniels said.
"Now, it's a new concept
that's 20 years old," he said.
"And when the loop is finished,
we'll be making history again
because as far as I know there
is not another trail in the Unit-
ed States that loops a commu-
nity the way ours will."
Daniels, who lives in Clear-
water, is involved in many other
community activities, but said
the Pinellas Trail citizen's or-
ganization is one of his fa-
vorites.
"This is a wonderful opportu-
nity with involvement from a lot
of good people," he said. 'They
come from all municipalities.
They're young and old, live in
downtown and suburban areas.
They're retirees and working
people. They all want to make
sure the Pinellas Trail is a good
place for the community."


Bed Bug Warning
for Holiday Travelers
New York, NY- This is the time to
prevent and protect your
home/rental property over the
Holiday travel season. Bed bugs can
easily and quickly spread by
attaching themselves to luggage,
clothing or furniture and
hitchhiking across the country. A
new, safe and effective all-natural
spray that is proven to kill bed bugs
(Cimex lectulanus) and their larvae
is now available for retail use by
consumers. These parasites know
no socio or economic boundaries;
cleanliness does not prevent a bed
bug infestation. Once thought to be
a problem of the past, bed bugs are

Hurricane season ends


By SUZETTE PORTER

A very busy Atlantic hurri-
cane season ended Nov. 30.
All told, 19 named storms
and 12 hurricanes formed in
2010. Five of the 12, Danielle,
Earl, Igor, Julia and Karl,
strengthened into major hurri-
canes.
Pretty close to the numbers
the experts predicted in August.
The National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration's Au-
gust forecast gave a 70 percent
chance of 14 to 20 named
storms forming between the
start of hurricane season June
1 and Nov. 30. The number in-
cluded the first three storms of
the season: Alex, Bonnie and
Colin.
NOAA said of the 14 to 20, 8
to 12 could be hurricanes with
winds of 74 mph or higher. Of


the 14 to 20, four to six could
be major hurricanes, Category 3
or higher, with winds of 111
mph or more.
Hurricane experts Philip J.
Klotzbach and William M. Gray
from Colorado State University
predicted 18 named storms
would form in 2010 with 10 of
the 18 strengthening into hurri-
canes. Of the 10, five were fore-
cast to become major
hurricanes, Category 3 or
above.
Hurricane Alex kicked off the
season on June 25. Tropical
Storm Bonnie formed July 22.
Two tropical storms and two
hurricanes formed in August.
September was a very busy
month with four tropical storms
and four hurricanes. Five hurri-
canes formed in October.
November has been quiet.
Only two names remain on


the list at the end of the season.
Pinellas County Emergency
Management sent out re-
minders of things to do on the
"off season."
Check the dates on nonper-
ishables stored in a disaster kit.
Use or donate any nearing the
expiration date. Look for sales
to restock between now and
June 1.
Use batteries from the kit to
power holiday toys and gadgets
and restock with fresh ones.
Take time to update emer-
gency contact lists.
Emergency officials also offer
a holiday gift idea: a weather
alert radio. Hurricane season is
not the only time bad weather
can threaten. The radio gives an
immediate warning when the
National Weather Service office
in Ruskin issues an alert for
hazardous weather.

IRB approves noise ordinance


By HALAN W'IKLE

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH Fol-
lowing months of debate, conces-
sions, planning and still more
debate Indian Rocks Beach has
what some are calling a prece-
dent-setting noise ordinance.
City Commissioner Phil Hanna
said of the new ordinance after its
unanimous approval Tuesday
night, "We've done something
never done before in Florida. This
is significant and I'm very proud
of everyone involved."
Hanna referred to the ad hoc
"noise committee" put together by
city officials earlier this year with
but one admonition, bring all
parties to the table and hammer
out a fair and practical noise or-
dinance that is both enforceable
and practical.
By practical, city officials in-

tend beyond that, according to
City Attorney Maura Kiefer, who
said "No one may produce unrea-

The ordinance contains a "rea-

explained.

Red light cameras coming to Clearwater
CLEARWATER It is said that wise people learn from their mis-
takes, and Clearwater Vice Mayor John Doran is no exception. In
a moment of inattention three years ago, Doran ran a red light, T-
boned another vehicle and almost totaled his beloved 1963 Willys
station wagon.
Ever since then, Doran has been crusading to have Clearwater
install red light cameras in hopes of preventing other motorists
from making the same mistake he did. But his previous attempts
were futile because his City Council colleagues said that the legali-
ty of the matter was too unsettled. Last year, however, the Florida
legislature passed a statute that allows cities to install the cam-
eras and collect the fines that they generate.
"It's just a coincidence that they collect most of the fine money,"
Doran said of the state lawmakers.
The city gets $75 from each $158 fine it collects, and the state
gets the rest. The city must then pay the camera vendor from its
share. By law, the vendor must be paid a flat fee, rather than a
percentage of the take, in the belief that that will prevent vendors
from rigging their cameras to produce the maximum income.
As a further safeguard, a police officer will review the film before
a ticket is issued. The ticket is then issued to the owner of the ve-

hide, who must either pay it or prove in court that he was not
driving the vehicle at the time it was photographed.
"This is going to be a great tool," police Chief Tony Holloway told
the council at its Nov. 18 meeting. "As time goes on, this is going
to help us" by reducing the number and severity of accidents and
freeing up police officers for crime fighting.
But Councilman Paul Gibson was skeptical.
"I have trepidations about this," Gibson said, explaining that
studies in cities with the cameras have shown an increase in rear-
end accidents as drivers slam on the brakes to avoid being pho-
tographed. He added that rear-end accidents often cause serious
injuries to the cervical spine.
"This is not a matter without controversy," Doran conceded.
"But I believe the number of accidents will be reduced if we enact
this."
Councilman Bill Jonson said that red-light running is "an epi-
demic in this area" and he dismissed opponents' claims that the
cameras are an unconstitutional form of entrapment.
"With proper notice, I don't see how it's entrapment," he said.
"You're going through a red light for Pete's sake!"
"It's a turnkey operation," Paul Bertels, head of the city's Traffic
Engineering Department, said of the camera system. "The vendor
installs the cameras and maintains them." He added that Kenneth
City is the only Pinellas County municipality to currently have
such a system.
Bertels said that the system would initially be installed at 11
major intersections that now have white lights on the bottom of
each traffic signal so that nearby police officers can tell from any
angle whether a car is running a red light.
"It's just like a robotic police officer; that's the way we look at it,"

Bertels said of the camera system. "Now they're going to know that
there's somebody there all the time and he never sleeps."
Mayor Frank Hibbard liked the fact that the cameras will free
up officers who would otherwise be assigned to traffic duty.
"We want them out doing what they do best, and that's fighting
crime," Hibbard said.
The council voted 3-2 to have City Attorney Pam Akin draft a
proposed ordinance to authorize the cameras. Gibson and Coun-
cilman George Cretekos cast the dissenting votes.
State of the city is relatively good,
city manager says
CLEARWATER Despite the continuing economic downturn,
City Manager Bill Home's annual State of the City Address to the
City Council Nov. 18 was fairly upbeat.
"No matter where I go in the county, people ask me how well
Clearwater is doing, and I can't tell you how proud I am to report
that we're certainly doing better then most," Home told the coun-
cil members. "I think we are blessed as a community."
But it wasn't entirely a rosy scenario. This year's $370 million
budget is down more than $5 million from last year. Taxable prop-
erty values have dropped 10 percent, nearly a billion dollars, in
the last year. That makes a 29 percent decrease in the past five
years, and the trend is expected to continue while the price of
goods and services the city buys is expected to rise.
Despite that, this year's property tax millage rate is 5.155 mills,
the same as last year. A mill is one dollar of tax for every $1,000 of
taxable value.

Don't let Congress

drive your doctor out of Medicare.


Congress must act now to prevent seniors from
losing their Medicare doctors.

Seniors have earned their Medicare and the security of knowing
they can keep seeing the doctors they trust. Unfortunately, many
seniors could lose their doctors if Congress fails to stop a 25% pay
cut before the end of the year. Congress has a responsibility to
keep doctors in the Medicare program by providing them with a
stable payment system for the next year.

Call 1-800-826-9625 and tell Congress to stop this physician pay

Using live shrimp as bait will give anglers more options


Weekly cold fronts will push
our fall to winter transition along
much more quickly than in weeks
past.
Cooler water temperatures as
well as windy conditions have
made it difficult to pattern bait-
fish over the past few days, so live
shrimp have came in handy the
past few days.
The best thing about live
shrimp is that everything eats
them, giving you the opportunity
to hook into more crustacean


minded species such as pompano
and sheepshead, two types of fish
that would be off the table if you
were solely relying on baitfish. Al-
though certain types of lures can
work very well for pompano at
times, nothing catches them more
consistently than a live shrimp.
Free-lining live shrimp with an
up-current cast and letting it drift
through the potential strike zone
unimpeded by the drag of the line
will allow you to fool even the
wariest of predatory feeders. For a

Buy plants for holiday gifts


Holiday shopping is a priority
on everyone's list and garden
centers have displayed plants
that complement the traditional
holiday colors.
There are the cream colored
and red poinsettias and impa
tiens, Christmas cactus, amaryl
lis, narcissus, mini roses,
rosemary "trees," cyclamen, and
bunches of fragrant greens that
grow north of us.
Not only are these plants great
for interior decorating, they make
thoughtful gifts for gardeners and
those who live in condos and
apartments.
Pots of herbs that can be
placed on a windowsill will pro-
vide a useful decoration. Parsley,
sage, rosemary and thyme (what

used herbs. What could be more
tasty than roasted potatoes with
sprigs of rosemary. A couple of
tropical foliage plants will bright-
en a dark corer. African violets
can flower most of the year on a
tabletop.
A homeowner may appreciate
receiving a fruit tree or a rose
bush. If you receive a Norfolk Is-
land pine in a pot with pretty red
bows on it, please look around at
its ultimate width and height be-
fore planting it in the ground. If


kept in a pot that is upgraded
every year, it will be a lovely mov-
able feature. It won't grow out of
bounds with its roots confined.
Boston ferns in hanging bas-
kets help create a casual tropical
look and are great for a lanai or
porch. Keep them watered regu-

Other gifts for gardeners in-

water clarity and tidal movement,
one could expect to hook into
such species as sea trout, blue-
fish, Spanish mackerel, pompano
and ladyfish on any given cast.
Another situation perfectly tai-
lored for a live shrimp is tailing
redfish. Extreme low tides will en-
tice reds to root the bottom on the
outside edge of the flat. Getting
out of the boat and quietly stalk-
ing these spooky feeders is a real
passion for some inshore anglers.
Taking a select or even jumbo

sized shrimp and hooking it
through the tail so that the hook
point isn't quite exposed will allow
you to fish the shrimp fairly weed-
less, letting you cast beyond the
fish and reel it back to it, so the
sound of the bait hitting the water
doesn't spook the fish.
And last but not least would be
the overall effectiveness of a fresh
shrimp on the crustacean-crush-
ing sheepshead. Drop down a
small shrimp or a piece of a larg-
er shrimp next to bridge fenders

families are welcome.
Registration is required at least 24 hours prior to

Sleep apnea problems usually are easily treated


Q: My husband frequently
makes "gasping" noises in his
sleep. He doesn't notice it, but
it keeps me awake all night. Is
this something he should get
checked out?
Sleepless in Florida
A: I frequently see this situa-
tion in patients with sleep apnea.
The patient him/herself is com-
pletely unaware that anything
abnormal is occurring, and
his/her spouse ends up witness-
ing the events, worrying and los-
ing sleep.
"Gasping" or "snoring" noises
during sleep are frequently symp-
toms of obstructive sleep apnea.
In patients with obstructive sleep
apnea, the noises are a result of
the patient's airway in the back of
the throat closing up. The pa-
tient's airway collapses and inter-
feres with breathing during sleep,
which results in the odd gasping
noises you hear. In extreme
cases, it can be fatal.
Ask yourself these questions:


Is he obese? Although not ev-
eryone with apnea is overweight,
over half of patients diagnosed
with sleep apnea have weight
problems.
Does he have a size 17 neck
or higher?
How old is he? Sleep apnea
more commonly occurs in pa-
tients over 40.
Does he have high blood
pressure?
Does he snore?
Is he tired during the day?
Does he experience memory
loss?
Concentration problems?
Depression?
Does he have Type 2 dia-
betes?
Your observations alone are
reason enough for him to seek an
appropriate medical opinion from
a physician who specializes in
sleep. In addition, if the answers
to any of the questions were a
"yes," your husband should see a
sleep doctor since these factors


For your health
Dr. Frank Averill


increase the risk that he may
have apnea. Most people do not
need a referral to see a sleep
physician. You should be choosy
about which doctor you see.
Check and make sure that the
physician you are working with is
board certified in sleep medicine.
A qualified doctor can deter-
mine if your husband's symp-
toms are in fact indicative of sleep
apnea and may recommend a
polysomnogram test. Your hus-
band will need to stay overnight
at a sleep center to undergo this
sleep study. It is possible to find
a high quality sleep center that
will be as comfortable as possible.
You have the right to choose
where you want the study con-
ducted.


Remember that you have op-
tions when choosing your sleep
center. Do your research. Unfor-
tunately, the national compliance
rate for sleep clinics is only 42
percent. A professional sleep
medicine practice should offer a
high quality of diagnosis, treat-
ment and care that is well above
the national average. Here again,
you have the right to ask ques-
tions and get care where you
want to.
When left untreated, sleep
apnea is a life threatening condi-
tion. People with untreated sleep
apnea have a higher risk of devel-
oping hypertension, diabetes,
heart disease, and stroke. In fact,
the risk of heart attack or death
increases by 30 percent over a
four- to five-year period.
While that statistic may be
staggering, sleep apnea is usually
easily treated and patients can go
on living normal, more energetic
lives after treatment. The most


common form of treatment is a
Continuous Positive Airway Pres-
sure device. A CPAP mask is worn
over the nose and/or mouth and
delivers a constant stream of air
in order to prevent the airway
from closing up. This may sound
uncomfortable, but most patients
do not seem to mind once they re-
alize the benefits of the device.
Other common forms of treat-
ment include weight loss, oral
surgery, and oral appliances.
Weight loss is an effective tool be-
cause it has not only been shown
to treat sleep apnea, but the pa-
tients' overall health as well (not
to mention lower the risks associ-
ated with sleep apnea). Some pa-
tients are able to be taken off of
CPAP therapy after losing excess
weight because their sleep pat-
terns return to normal.
Now on to you. It sounds as if
your husband's problem is affect-
ing your sleep patterns as well.
On average, spouses of patients


with apnea lose an hour of sleep
each night. It's easy to overlook
the importance of a quality nights'
sleep. However, studies have
shown that a full night's sleep
does affect overall health and
helps to improve focus, energy,
and allow you to get more accom-
plished during the day. It's even
been shown that couples who
struggle with sleep apnea have a
higher divorce rate than those
who do not.
Once your husband seeks help,
you both should be able to get a
better night's sleep, in turn allow-
ing you to lead more fulfilling lives
during the day.
Dr. Frank Averill is board certi-
fied in sleep medicine, pulmonary
medicine, critical care and internal
medicine. He is currently the Medi-
cal Director of St. Francis Sleep, Al-
lergy & Lung Institute, 802 N.
Belcher Road, and has been prac-
ticing medicine in Pinellas County
for 20 years.

EDITORIAL



Here to stay

It was not what some residents wanted to hear, but it was an
important message.
A panel of experts at a forum in Pinellas Park recently an-
swered residents' questions pertaining to the problem of coy-
otes making their homes in neighborhoods.
Some residents complained that coyotes had eaten cats and
that they might attack other animals, such as dogs and horses.
Basically, the experts said that coyotes are here to stay. As in
other areas where millions of dollars have been spent trying to
eradicate the predators, Pinellas County can't solve the prob-
lem.
However, residents can take steps to minimize the problems
coyotes cause.
For instance, they should not feed pets outdoors or by leaving
them outdoors.
Breanne Strepina, a wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, put it bluntly:
"Are you going to provide food for 20, 30 cats in the area? If
so, you're creating a smorgasbord for larger animals," she said.
Eliminate food sources, she said, and residents will see fewer
coyotes.
Trapping coyotes should be left to professionals. Trying to
trap a coyote in a small area, such as a homeowner's backyard,
for example, is fraught with problems, since a single coyote may
never return to the same spot.
Certainly, losing a pet as a result of a gruesome attack by a
coyote can be a shocking experience.
But, rather than looking for agencies to rid the county of coy-
otes they should heed the advice from agencies and recognize
that coyotes, love them or hate them, are part of the communi-
ty.

A fresh voice of reason
Editor:
I have been following with interest the coverage on the new face in
Pinellas County government politics, County Commissioner Norm
Roche. Mr. Roche is no stranger to Pinellas County government or to
us who worked with him in years past when he was a county em-
ployee. I retired from Pinellas County in June 2007 after 33 years of
public service.
Norm was elected by his co-workers to be on the Employees Advi-
sory Council. The council members act as representatives of their fel-
low employees much like a union steward. Contrary to popular belief,
most of Pinellas County's employees are not unionized. Norm was
tireless in presenting our ideas to better our workplaces to the county
administrator and our county commissioners. He took ideas present-
ed to him, diligently researched available data and made detailed,
professional presentations.
Norm will be a fresh voice of reason to help County Administrator
Bob LaSala, and his fellow county commissioners find a way to once
again make Pinellas County government the benchmark of public
service in America as we once were.

Red light cameras will cause accidents
Editor:
Clearwater Beacon heralded "red light cameras coming to town."
I'd rather have Santa Claus in his red suit- and I don't believe in him
either.
I knew it was coming but I sincerely was holding out for someone
with sense to override this dangerous money-grab ploy. Apparently,
there were two of those on the City Council. Clearwater Vice Mayor
John Doran's story of being inattentive and T- boning a car while ac-
cidentally going through a red light has no correlation to the cameras
except that maybe whoever wanted to sue him had video footage to
condemn him. It was an "accident." It's called an accident because
Jon Doran's "moment of inattention" causes an accident, not an "on
purpose." A red light camera is not going to prevent an accident like
this but it will without a doubt cause a whole slew of new ones.
You will have more accidents as people get rear-ended when people
slam on brakes so they don't go through the light. A Virginia study
found accidents increased 27 percent after red-light cameras were
put into place. In North Carolina, the study found that the cameras
did not decrease crashes but instead increased the amount and
severity of crashes. If there's a problem with an intersection, why
don't safety engineers in the field just go out and fix the timing ... add
a second or two or three between the change?
Maybe even use signal-timers like pedestrian crossing boxes so
that people know how long they have before the light turns red. Isn't
that cheaper and more sensible? I was on a city panel that discussed
this a while back and, sadly, there were a few who actually felt they
could accept a few permanent cervical spine injuries while people
learned the camera was there. Think debilitating back injury, possi-
ble paralysis, bulging disks, ruptured disks, fractures.
In my opinion, this all falls at the feet of the almighty dollar. There
are claims that we can have police out fighting crime instead of writ-
ing tickets, but yet the city says a police officer will review all the
video footage before sending out the tickets. He is not out fighting the
bad guys who are actually harming people. The cameras are out-
sourced, so who is holding them accountable? How much will it take
to hold them accountable? Money breeds contempt. So who will
make sure the city of Clearwater is getting everything they are sup-
posed to receive? Now we have to pay to have that outside
vendor/company audited. How often and at what cost? The city gets
$75 of every $158 they collect and then still has to pay the camera
vendor?
Vice Mayor John Doran said "It's just a coincidence that state law
makers get most of the money?" Somehow that coincidence is too co-
incidental. So everyone wants to make money on this "venture" and
it's OK to give the citizens the inconvenience and the increase of cer-
vical spine injuries. This is not government of the people with their
liberty and financial interests in mind.
The poor will always be among us and so will lawbreakers. You
can't give away the rights and safety of the people to control a few. I
do not want to live in a "big brother" town. Sadly, it looks like I will.
Vonabell Sherman
Clearwater

All about more money
Editor:
The Clearwater city council has voted to install red light cameras:
The Clearwater city hall mob strikes again. Studies indicate increas-
ing caution lights by a few seconds would reduce accidents at inter-
sections by 80 percent.
Of course, Clearwater officials don't care about public safety they
are only interested in more money even if it means robbing motorists.
This is the same city that has impoverished its residents with sky
high taxes and exorbitant 16 percent taxes and franchise fees on
electricity (county residents pay zero). The taxes and fees on power


bills in Clearwater are so high they would embarrass even an organ-
ized crime protection racket.

An ill-defined custom that can kill you


Hazing is one of those hallowed practices
that goes on ignored for years at a time, until
hazing kills someone. Then, and only then,
does society pay much attention.
No one knows the origin of the word "haz-
ing." At least, I couldn't find anyone who
knew. Nor has anyone written the definitive
meaning of hazing, although one Canadian
scholar has written several books about it.
There is no common denominator for haz-
ing rituals. Some involve inflicting pain and
humiliation. Others instill terror. Sleep depri-
vation is common. So are degrading insults.
Alcohol is often forced down the gullets of ini-
tiates by the senior members of the organiza-
tion. Sadism easily finds its way into hazing.
Still, much hazing is relatively harmless and
good-natured. It usually depends on who's
doing the hazing.
Many college and high school fraternities
and sororities practice hazing. So do military
units, athletic teams, street gangs and work-
places.
Why do people engage in hazing? Many
reasons. One is to weed out weaklings or the
faint of heart. If a man (or woman) cannot
swim naked for an hour in ice cold water
while blindfolded, he/she probably doesn't
deserve to be a member of the 1159th Macho
Squadron. A second reason is to confirm the
level of stupidity. Many, if not most, organiza-
tions are run by really stupid leaders. By haz-
ing newcomers, these leaders can determine
which of them are stupid enough to want to
belong. The newcomers who survive are wel-
comed into the group and proclaimed stupidly
worthy of membership.
I've undergone hazing (of sorts) three times.
The first was in a caddy shack at a golf course
in the Pocono Mountains. The veteran caddies
kept talking about "initiating" the new caddies
like me. But they never got around to it. I sus-


a


Driver's Seat

pect it was because the old hands weren't
bright enough to think up creative tortures for
us to do. But they kept us mightily on edge.
My second hazing was in September 1951
as my ship crossed the Equator after taking
part in the then current wartime disease
known as gone-to-Korea. The old sailors
shellbackss) devised a few dozen unpleasant
challenges for the newbies polliwogss) to en-
dure. Such as kissing the mustard-coated
belly of the ship's gunnery officer.
My final hazing, as a fraternity pledge, last-
ed for my full freshman year. The fraternity,
Delta Upsilon, was an enlightened group that
did not condone racial or religious discrimina-
tion, or the spooky secret-grip baloney that
many Greek outfits held sacred during the
1950s. The DU hazing was predictably
lightweight. We underwent such penny-ante
things as paddling, being forced to sing our
high school alma mater, allowing co-eds to
pour water on us from a dormitory balcony
and biting into a whipped-cream dessert that
was actually shaving cream. I deliberately
swallowed a mouthful without even reacting;
this enraged a senior member, a humorless
military-school type who had looked forward
to my gagging. It was a proud moment for me.
Years after I graduated, both the college
and the state of Pennsylvania banned all
forms of hazing. Many other states and organ-
izations have done likewise. Hazing is a crimi-
nal offense in India. In France, hazing can get
you six months in the hoosegow.


How successful these prohibitions are is
another matter.
Hazing is often hush-hush, a well-kept se-
cret, protected even by those whose stomachs
have been turned by the shenanigans im-
posed on the initiates.
In some cases hazing deaths have gone un-
reported or have been covered up. An average
of two persons a year die in the USA because
of hazing activities. It's unlikely that hazing
will ever disappear. One reason is that hazing
is so ill-defined. What is hazing to one person
or gang may be regarded as playful fun by an-
other.
Is military boot camp a form of hazing? It
could be regarded as such, if you look at the
extreme mental, physical and emotional pres-
sures that recruits are put through. Whatever
you call it, this training is aimed at preparing
the warriors for real-life combat situations
that may follow. It also weeds out recruits
who are unsuitable for service, for whatever
reason.
But military hazing can go too far. Russian
armed forces are world-renowned for the vi-
ciousness of their hazing practices. Example:
one soldier was forced to squat for hours
while he was beaten. This resulted in the loss
of his genitals and both legs.
Can hazing be considered a form of bully-
ing? I think so, and current indicators show
that Americans are getting fed up with bully-
ing in all its forms, principally in public
schools. At their roots, bullying and hazing
are un-American. Our nation was founded by
a small band of patriots whose watchwords
included "Don't tread on me." Perhaps with
time we will respond to all would-be hazing
practitioners by giving them a knuckle sand-
wich to chew on.

Joe Satriani, touring in support of his new "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards" release, plays Ruth Eckerd Hall Dec. 4.



Guitar legend

Satriani exposes his soul on 'Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards'


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

CLEARWATER Joe Satriani, on tour in support of his latest re-
lease "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards" will perform Saturday,
Dec. 4, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road,
Clearwater.
Since the release of his multi-platinum "Surfing with the Alien"
album in 1987, Satriani has been regarded as a living guitar legend
who can make the six strings scream and wail.
Satriani has received practically every guitar award imaginable and
also has been nominated for more than a dozen Grammy Awards. On
his 13th studio album, "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards," the
musician challenged himself to expose his soul "in ways even he never
believed were possible," according to a biography provided by his pub-
licist.
"I still like the idea of creating cool rock music, and I made sure that
there were a lot of what I call 'big rock moments' on the album, but I
definitely felt that it was time to affect people directly and profoundly,"
Satriani says in the bio. "I wanted to give them something they never
got from me before. These songs are my black swans, if you will."
The image of black swans actually didn't come to Satriani immedi-
ately when he began writing for the new album. Actually, he started
out with a collection of songs some half-finished, others fully fleshed
out that he had penned while touring with his rock supergroup
Chickenfoot. While reviewing the material, he noticed that the bulk of
it was unlike anything he had ever written before.
"And that's the thing about the term 'black swan,' says Satriani.
'The expression is one that's very old; it basically means 'unlikely
things' images, occurrences, extreme rarities in life. That image stuck
with me. I realized that what I had written were my artistic black
swans songs that my audience probably might not expect. And
truthfully, a lot of them took me by surprise, as well."
The album features titles such as 'Wormhole Wizards," a grooving
science fiction-themed funk rocker; "Premonition," a surging, ominous
yet majestic epic; "Dream Song," an intoxicating piece which the musi-
cian composed in his head while sleeping; and "Littleworth Lane," a


song Satriani wrote in honor of his mother who passed away in 2009.
On the album-closing "God is Crying," Satriani pulls out all the
stops, unleashing a torrent of sizzling, shreding guitar work on a track
that ranks as one of his most panoramic of efforts.
"I don't want to say that I was intentionally holding back on the
blazing guitar throughout the record," he says, "but every song is
about choices. How many notes? What notes? When writing this song,
I started thinking about the concept of God and what He would do if
he actually came down to Earth I mean, physically. And I thought,
He'd probably start crying at all the things we've done. To properly
convey that message, I couldn't hold back on my instrument. I let
loose with everything I had."
"Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards," produced and recorded by
Mike Fraser and Satriani, was released Oct. 5 through Epic Records. It
is his first studio album since 2008's "Professor Satchafunkilus and
the Musterion of Rock."
When not recording in the studio, Satriani stays busy touring.
Over the last two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to
sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star "G3"
guitar extravaganza. He recorded "Live in Paris: I Just Wanna Rock!"
in 2008 at The Grand Rex Theater in Paris, France. The live two-disc
CD and DVD was released in February through Epic Records. It fea-
tures songs such as "Surfing With The Alien," "Flying in a Blue
Dream," "Super Colossal" and "I Just Wanna Rock."
In 2009, Satriani joined with former Van Halen front man Sammy
Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers'
drummer Chad Smith, to form the stand-out rock collaboration,
Chickenfoot. After a highly successful U.S. tour, their self-titled debut
album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of
America with over 500,000 in album shipments.
At Ruth Eckerd Hall, Satriani will be joined by veteran bandmate
Jeff Campitelli. Also performing with him on this tour will be two new-
comers, including keyboardist Mike Keneally and bassist Allen Whit-
man.
Tickets range from $39 to $69. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheck

January 20 February 18
Energy levels shoot through
the roof, and you accomplish
more than you have in some
time. Opportunity knocks. Re-
spond when ready, Aquarius.

Pisces
February 19 March 20
Don't think you can make a
difference? Think again, Pisces.
You have much to contribute to

reiterates that fact.

Aries
March 21 April 19
Goodness, Aries. You are one
of the most productive people
around, so don't feel bad about
taking a break. It's fine to cut
yourself some slack now and
then.

Taurus
April 20 May 20
Creativity abounds, Taurus,
and you outperform expecta-

weekend satisfies your thirst for
adventure and meets a need.

Trust your instincts, Gemini.
They are right on. A project

A deadline approaches.

Cancer

Don't read more into a situa-

tip of the iceberg. Help them only
if they genuinely want to change.

Leo

Steer clear of office politics this

with everything that you do. A
special occasion draws near.

Oh my, Virgo. You have forgot-

Opening this week


'All Good Things' combines a love story with a murder mystery


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'All Good Things'
Genre: Romance and thriller
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, Frank Langel-
la, Lily Rabe and Philip Baker Hall
Director: Andrew Jarecki
Rated: R
Inspired by the most notorious missing person's
case in New York history, "All Good Things" is a love
story and murder mystery set against the backdrop
of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s.
The drama portrayed in Andrew Jarecki's film
was inspired by the story of Robert Durst, scion of
the wealthy Durst family. Durst was suspected but
never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disap-
peared in 1982 and was never found. The original
script was developed by Andrew Jarecki, Marc
Smerling, and Marcus Hinchey and written by
Hinchey and Smerling.

'The Warrior's Way'
Genre: Action and adventure
Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Tony Cox, Kate Bosworth,
Nick Sampson and Ziyi Zhang
Director: Sngmoo Lee
Not rated
The world's greatest swordsman abandons his
warrior clan to start a new life in the American Bad-
lands in 'The Warrior's Way," a visually dazzling
modem martial arts adventure with stunningly cho-
reographed fight sequences and gravity-defying
stunts.
After a lifetime of training in martial arts and
swordsmanship, Yang (Jang Dong Gun) has elimi-
nated all but one of his clan's enemies an infant
whose smile instantly melts his heart. Unwilling to
kill her and unable protect her from his own deadly
tribe, Yang takes the baby girl and flees, planning to
seek refuge with an old friend living in Lode, a fron-
tier town in the American West.
He arrives to find that his friend has died and the
once-thriving Gold Rush town is in shambles, in-
habited only by a few dozen eccentrics including
Lynne (Kate Bosworth), a beautiful, spirited knife
thrower-in-training, and Ron, a worn-out drunk
(Geoffrey Rush). In order to make a safe home for
the child far from the reach of his murderous clans-
man, Yang decides to stay on as the town's new
laundryman, sealing his sword for good.
Yang unexpectedly finds a kindred spirit in
Lynne. Orphaned by a horrifying act of brutality,
Lynne has spent 10 years plotting revenge against
her attacker, the Colonel (Danny Huston). While


teaching Yang to run the laundry and look after the
baby, she discovers his talent for swordplay and
begs him to tutor her in martial arts.
In the midst of Lode's annual Christmas celebra-
tion, the Colonel and his renegade gang return and
threaten to destroy the town. Knowing that Lynne
will do everything in her power to exact revenge on
the Colonel, Yang reluctantly unsheathes his sword,
fully aware that the ring of its blade will immediately
reveal his location to his own murderous pack. He
leads a fierce and ingenious force of townspeople
armed only with improvised weapons and a unique
set of skills in an all-out battle.
But, as he feared, the sound of his sword brings
the ruthless attackers into the fray, leading Yang,
Lynne, April and the town folk to their ultimate des-
tinies.

Thefollowing will open in limited release. It may be
several weeks before these films appear in local
movie theaters.

'Black Swan'
Genre: Drama and thriller
Cast: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Winona
Ryder, Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Rated: R
A psychological thriller set in the world of New
York City ballet, "Black Swan" stars Natalie Port-
man as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself
locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new
rival at the company (Mila Kunis). A Fox Searchlight
Pictures release by visionary director Darren Aronof-
sky, "Black Swan" takes a thrilling and at times ter-
rifying journey through the psyche of a young
ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous
swan queen turns out to be a part for which she be-
comes frighteningly perfect.
"Black Swan" follows the story of Nina (Portman),
a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose
life, like all those in her profession, is completely
consumed with dance. She lives with her retired bal-
lerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously
supports her daughter's professional ambition.
When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel)
decides to replace prima ballerina Beth Maclntyre
(Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their
new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But
Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis),
who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a
dancer who can play both the White Swan with in-
nocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who repre-
sents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan
role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the
Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their
rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get
more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness
that threatens to destroy her.

'I Love You Phillip Morris'
Genre: Comedy and adaptation
Cast: Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor, Leslie Mann,
Rodrigo Santoro and Antoni Corone
Director: Glenn Ficarra and John Requa
Rated: R
"I Love You Phillip Morris" is the improbable but
true story of a spectacularly charismatic conman's
journey from small-town businessman to flamboy-
ant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds
himself in trouble with the law and on the lam,
brilliantly escaping from the Texas prison system
on four separate occasions all in the name of
love.
Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly av-
erage life an organ player in the local church,
happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a
member of the local police force. That is until he
has a severe car accident that leads him to the ulti-


mate epiphany: he's gay and he's going to live life to
the fullest even if he has to break the law to do it.
Taking on an extravagant lifestyle, Steven turns
to cons and fraud to make ends meet and is even-
tually sent to the State Penitentiary where he meets
the love of his life, a sensitive, soft-spoken man
named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). His devo-
tion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the per-
fect life together prompts him to attempt (and often
succeed at) one impossible con after another. Told
with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of heart,
"I Love You Phillip Morris" is an oddball tale of what
can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spir-
it and undying love collide.

Holiday happenings


Events include boat parades, home tours and choral concerts


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

Nights are getting chilly by Florida standards, anyway.
While those dreaming of a white Christmas might be a little disap-
pointed, most Floridians enjoy the winter holidays beneath sunny
skies and palm trees and most don't fret over the fact that there al-
most certainly won't be any snow to shovel come Christmas morning.
Even without the occasional snow flurry, getting into the spirit of
the season isn't difficult with all the holiday-themed events offered
around the area. From seasonal plays and concerts to annual pa-
rades led by Santa himself, residents and visitors will discover a wide
variety of holiday happenings in Pinellas County.

Plaza 100 to host holiday celebration
BELLEAIR BLUFFS A complimentary musical holiday celebration
will be presented on Thursday, Dec. 2, 6 to 8 p.m., at The Plaza 100,
100 Indian Rocks Road N.
The event will feature the Bayside String Quartet, principal players
from the Florida Orchestra. Also participating will be pianist Scott
Behler as well as Jack Frost, in costume, playing guitar and singing
Christmas music. There will be art and travel shows, complimentary
wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres while they last. Some seating will be
provided. Guests may bring folding chairs.

IEYC to host boat parade
CLEARWATER The Island Estates Yacht Club will host its 2010
Memorial Holiday Boat Parade Saturday, Dec. 11, 6:30 p.m., with a
rain date of Dec. 12.
There will be a pre-parade captain's meeting Thursday, Dec. 9, at
the Clearwater Yacht Club.
The decorated boats will assemble in Mandalay Channel between
Island Estates and Clearwater Beach at 6 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., the lead
boat will proceed northward through Mandalay Channel, then the
parade will weave in and out of many of the Island Estate canals be-
fore heading over to Coachman Park around 8 p.m. From there, the
boats will go under the Memorial Causeway Bridge, turning into the
Clearwater Marina Channel before navigating to the Clearwater
Yacht Club's judging stand.
The boat parade honors the memory of Island Estates Yacht Club
members who passed away during the year.
There is no entry fee. Those interested in participating may call
Tom Smith at 776-3375.
Visit myislandestates.org.

Holiday tour of homes set for Dec. 4
DUNEDIN The Dunedin Youth Guild will host the 41st annual
Holiday Tour of Homes, 'The Deerest of Seasons," including a bou-
tique and tea Dec. 4.
'This event will definitely get you into the holiday spirit. You can
tour an eclectic mix of beautifully decorated homes located in
Dunedin. You also will have an opportunity to shop at our boutiques
while enjoying a complimentary tea," said a Youth Guild news re-
lease.
The homes are decorated in a variety of motifs. Each home has a


personality of its own. They range from Victorian styles to traditional

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA


I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife,
Brooke, and I bought it. We were working hard to build a
business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help
our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.
Instead, they asked us if we could serve food to the workers,
engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to
cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we
weren't the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and
kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and
down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed.
Our restaurant's open six days a week. Customers are filling our
restaurant again and we think it's a good time to come down to
the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here
and while it's been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just
one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to
seeing you.
