LARGO City commissioners said Dec. 7 they would
consider a request for funding of a facility for the home-
less at the annex to the county jail off 49th Street, but
they have some concerns about its impact on Largo.
St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster told commissioners
he plans to ask the city for $25,000 to $50,000 to help
finance the facility, where men and women may stay
and have access to food, toilets and showers. It's initial
capacity would be 250 people, who will be free to come
This initiative is being supported by the Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office and the city of St. Petersburg.
Plans are for the facility, called Pinellas Safe Harbor, to
open in January.
"What we are trying to do is give people an option to
sleeping on the sidewalk," Foster said. 'This is not the
Taj Mahal. This is not going to create new homes. What
this does it's a step above a cardboard box on a street
Among Mayor Pat Gerard's concerns, though, was
that local governments would put resources into the
project this year and "it's a permanent thing."
"We start this year and it's going to go on for years
and years and years," she said. "And that's money we
would not be spending on family shelters and other
sorts of homeless issues."
However, Gerard who asked that the proposal be
put on the agenda also said that it is a better altera-
tive than taking people to jail.
She said the capacity of the existing shelters is "no
where near what's needed at this point because the
problem is getting worse as people are unemployed
longer and homes are being foreclosed on."
Commissioner Curtis Holmes told Foster that his ex-
planation changed his mind on the merits of Safe Har-
bor, but he expected to get phone calls.
'That phone call's going to say Foster dumped his
panhandlers on Tampa and now he's dumping his
homeless on Largo," he said.
Among city officials' concerns are that because of
traffic on 49th Street more accidents involving pedestri-
ans will occur.
Tough Police Chief John Carroll said the area is not
in the jurisdiction of the police department, he said "it's

Pinellas Trail touted
at Taylor Park event
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO When county officials talked
about opening the first section of the
Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, the biggest
objections came from the Taylor Park
But county officials weren't deterred,
said former County Administrator Fred
Marquis, speaking at the 20th anniver-
sary of the trail at Taylor Park Dec. 4.
"Everybody just knew that the day
the trail opened, every wino in Pinellas
County was going to be in their back-
yard," he said, "and robbing them."
Within the first month, the county
had an "absolute flood" of building per-
mits, he said, "and those same folks"
wanted to build gates in their back
walls to have direct access.

Wedding Garden, the fountains have dried up

a project to restore some of that garden's lost
beauty a glass mosaic design featuring fish,
lily pads, frogs and butterflies against a back-
ground of water, which will cover all 700 square
feet of boarded-up pool covers.
"I replied to an ad from the Botanical Gardens
for someone to help with its website and
newsletter," said Anderson, who moved to the
Bay area in 2009. "I started work on Thursday
and by Monday I had come up with the idea for
the mosaic design and presented it to the
Chuck Scaffidi, president of the Florida
Botanical Gardens Foundation, said "it didn't
take long for the board members to get caught
up in the excitement of Heather's proposal. Co-
day, after day as this trail progressed in
the communities," he said. "It became
an urban renewal project. It became a
joy to the citizens project. It just basical-
ly pulled the community together and
nothing will ever replace that."
County Commission Chair Karen
Seel recognized Marquis as one of the
fathers of the trail. The other is Bert
Valery, whose son was killed when he
was struck by a car while riding his
bicycle home from work. In 1984,
Valery's Bicycle Advisory Committee
proposed using a 34-mile corridor of
abandoned railroad track right-of-way
as a bike route.

been tying together the different parts of

Police seek motive in murder case
By TOM GERMOND
LARGO Largo police are try-
ing to determine the motive in-
volved in the case of a shooting
death Nov. 30 at a convenience
Largo police announced early
Thursday morning that a man
wanted in connection with a Nov.
30 shooting at the Rainbow Food
Mart, 2575 East Bay Drive in
Largo was in custody.
Annie Marie Conyers, 26, of
Clearwater died from injuries
suffered when Larry Joe Jerry Jr.
allegedly shot her in the lower
torso about 10:30 a.m.
"He (Jerry) was clearly an
armed and dangerous person
who presented a serious threat
to safety of the public at large.
Our focus remained on his cap-
ture until he was placed into
custody. The coverage by the
media assisted us in this en-
deavor," said police spokesman
Lt. Mike Loux, in a press re-
Jerry was brought to the
Pinellas County Jail by a bail
bondsman on Dec. 2 shortly after
'The Largo Police Department
would like to thank all of those
external entities which helped in
Jerry being in custody. The U.S.
Marshals, Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Pinellas Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office, Clearwater Po-
lice Department and Tarpon
Springs Police Department as-
sisted us in our vigilant efforts to
Police say it is unknown why
Jerry turned himself in; "howev-
er, it is our belief that the cooper-
ative efforts of all parties played a
critical role in his decision."
Largo police have been at work
trying to find Jerry since the
Tuesday incident when he al-
legedly fired several rounds in
the parking lot of the Rainbow
According to a police report,
Conyers was a passenger in a
gold vehicle parked at the Rain-
bow Food Mart. Conyers, two
other females and a young child
were walking toward the store,
when Jerry, 26, drove his 2011
black Ford Edge into the parking
lot and fired several rounds at
the vehicle and the females.
The driver of the gold vehicle
fled with the child, and the other
women ran toward the entrance
of the food mart. One of the bul-
lets struck Conyers. She was
flown to Bayfront Hospital where
she later died.
The Edge was found in the
area of Duncan Avenue and Mar-
ion Street in Clearwater on Nov.
30. Largo police said the vehicle
would be processed for evidence.
Largo police said on Wednes-
day that the motive behind the
shooting remained unknown.
In addition to the two previous
outstanding warrants for felony
fleeing and eluding and felony
DWLSR (driving with a license
suspended or revoked), Jerry was
charged with murder-capital and
four counts of attempted murder.
He had been arrested several
times on drug and battery
charges, according to the Sher-

Ask Dr. Panzarella:
Go Straight Without the Punishment
It isn't only kids who have crooked teeth and sometimes need braces. As we get
older, our teeth shift and can become misaligned, crowded and uncomfortable. Some
people are surprised to find that if they had braces as a child, their teeth are moving back
to the place they were before braces.
You know you don't like the way it looks, but did you
know that crooked, crowded and misaligned teeth could be
bad for your health as well?
Misaligned teeth can cause headaches and jaw pain, and
when teeth are crooked, plaque build-up may increase,
leading to periodontal disease and gum disease. Improper
bite also means you can't chew food properly, which can
sometimes lead to gastrointestinal problems.
So you consider braces. You look around at all the fresh-
faced kids. Braces look cute on them, but on you? You
aren't so sure. The look of metal braces, the pinching and discomfort, just turn you off.
That's where we come in. I have been fully trained and certified to offer one of the
most innovative alignment systems for adults on the market Invisalign.
Invisalign can give you the healthy smile you have always wished you could have
without the discomfort of metal braces or the lifestyle change they demand. Instead,
Invisalign works with comfortable aligners that no one will notice you're wearing.
We will use advanced 3-D computer technology to transform your bite impressions
into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners. There may be as many as 48
in the series or as few as 12, depending on your individual treatment plan. Once your
aligners are back from the lab, you simply start wearing them.
Created from clear, medical-grade plastic, these aligners function just like traditional
braces in that they use controlled force to guide your teeth into proper alignment. As
you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, week by
week, until they have reached their ideal position. I'll see you periodically to check your
progress and give you the next set of aligners.
My patients love that with Invisalign they can live the way they please- they eat
what they want, brush and floss their teeth as usual, even take the aligners out for special
occasions! Astonishingly, though, studies show that Invisalign wearers actually lose
weight because of reduced between meal snacking.

Pinellas Park Fire Department
PINELLAS PARK The Pinellas Park Fire Department has
begun to convert its fleet of fire and rescue vehicles to red, dis-
carding the yellow-green color that has been characteristic of the
trucks up till now.
'That's the way it is," Mayor Bill Mischler said in response to
an inquiry about the color change during the Nov. 23 council
meeting "Chartreuse is out and red's back."
The transition began with the purchase approval of three red
rescue trucks several months ago. The rescue trucks were deliv-
ered a few weeks ago and have already made appearances
around Pinellas Park, city spokesman Tim Caddell said.
The change was initially promoted by a passing negative com-
ment on the color from Councilman Jerry Mullins during the
grand opening of the now Pinellas Park-run fire station in Ken-
neth City, Caddell said. Curious what his department thought of
their chartreuse vehicles, Fire Chief Doug Lewis informally sur-
veyed the Pinellas Park firefighters.
'The majority of them actually wanted to switch to the red,"
So when the department had to replace three rescue trucks,
they decided to order them in red, he said. Two other fire en-
gines, due to arrive around March, also will be red, and an old
fire truck that needed body work done recently was repainted in
the new color.
Still, it could be a while before the department's entire fleet
"Everything else will stay yellow until it's replaced or needs to
be updated," Caddell said. "With the life of the fire truck, it could
take a long time before they're all the same color."
Caddell said when the city first switched to the yellow-green
color several decades ago, a study argued that yellow trucks
were easier to see. Since then, popular sentiment has swung
back to the traditional red.
"People recognize big red trucks as fire trucks, but they don't
recognize the chartreuse," Caddell said.
Former Mayor Cecil Bradbury brought up the issue to the
council during its Nov. 23 meeting.
"Driving down the road the other day, I noticed something that
looked a little strange," he said, going on to explain that he first
assumed that the red fire truck he saw in Pinellas Park had
come on an assist from a fire station in Lealman.
He said he was further surprised when he realized the vehicle
was a Pinellas Park truck and questioned how the color decision
had been made, calling the change "not the swiftest move in the
"I sure hope we don't buy any more red ones. I hope we go

down the street, and ... see a fire truck coming, and you knew
you were in Pinellas Park."
Mischler said that not only had the council sanctioned the
color change when the purchase request came up for their ap-
proval, but that the new color was likely permanent.
"The city council approved purchasing the red rescue truck
and now red fire trucks. We will be getting a couple more," he
said. "We have a Smart car in case you didn't notice. Things are
City reassesses Penny projects
CLEARWATER Like many of its residents, the city of Clear-
water will have to scale back its plans for the future because of
the current economic slowdown. And an ordinance that the City
Council adopted in 1997 requires that citizens be allowed to par-
ticipate in the process.
"Due to the slowing economy and anticipated loss of revenues,
the City Council has reviewed a proposed list of project changes,
which reduce the planned projects by approximately
$19,406,160," a staff memo to the council said.
"Due to the slowing economy, we've had to reduce our revenue
projections over the next nine years and had to reduce our
Penny (for Pinellas sales tax-funded) projects by $19 million,"
budget director Tina Wilson told the council at its Nov. 29 work
session. She added that she is keeping a list of projects that are
eliminated or downsized so that they can be "revisited" in the un-
likely event that the economy improves in the near future.
The Downtown Intermodal (Transportation) Facility project
funding is expected to be reduced by $2 million, from $8 million
to $6 million. Funding for the purchase of the St. Petersburg
Times property on the northwest corer of Court Street and Myr-
tle Avenue, which would be used as a terminal where Intermodal
passengers arriving from Orlando by rail would switch to other
means of transportation to complete their journey to Clearwater
Beach, would be reduced from $3.5 million to $2.5 million.
The funding for traffic calming projects is slated to be reduced
from $5 million to $3.5 million. But that didn't satisfy Council-
man Paul Gibson, who said that upgrading fire stations, espe-
cially those at Countryside and Clearwater Beach, should receive
a higher priority than traffic calming.
Mayor Frank Hibbard replied that the current fire stations "are
not falling down around our ears." Deputy Fire Chief Robert
Weiss added that he had produced a schedule of fire station up-
grades based on the funds that he believed would be available for
them, but he would gladly accelerate the schedule if additional
funding becomes available.
The funding for a proposed merger of the St. Petersburg Col-
lege library with the city's Eastside Library has been reduced
from $10 million to $7.5 million, and the previously scrapped
renovation of the Countryside Library has been resurrected with
a budget of $5 million.
Fears of a lawsuit if someone is injured on a deteriorating sea-
wall prompted city officials to speed up citywide seawall repairs
and increase the funding of the project from $1.25 million to
$5.25 million. Funding for the downtown streetscaping project is
expected to be cut by $2 million, from $8 million to $6 million.
The $2.5 million Bayshore Boulevard realignment project, the
$7 million allocated for a new City Hall and parking lot, the $8.5
million beach parking garage and the $2.5 million Countryside-
TBD project have all been eliminated. But a new project to reno-
vate and expand the North Greenwood Recreation Center, at a
cost of $1,093,840, has been added to the proposed Penny list.
Youth sports field renovation funding has been cut from $7
million to $6.35 million and the $650,000 saved will be diverted
to the Joe DiMaggio Sports Complex for restrooms, storage and

"So we are paying attention for sure," he said.
Officials also said plans for Pinellas Safe Harbor continue to
"It's a work in progress," Gerard said. 'The closer they get to open-
ing the more changes are made because there are a lot of practical
Commissioners asked City Manager Mac Craig to see if funding is
available for the proposal. They also may tour the facility.
According to the Safe Harbor's budget proposal, the facility will
primarily serve three populations:
Chronic offenders, many of whom may be homeless, including
intoxicated individuals who are not accepted by other homeless
shelters and those persons who are often arrested for city ordinance
violations and misdemeanors,
Persons recently released from the Florida Department of Cor-
rections. Foster said that would be a "small component" of the popu-
lation makeup at the facility.
Persons recently released from the Pinellas County Jail.
"Repeatedly arresting chronic offenders to address the issues as-
sociated with them living on the street causes a strain on the crimi-
nal justice system and is a very expensive solution to a social
problem," the proposal says.
Between December 2005 and September 2010, one homeless per-
son was arrested 74 times for city ordinance violations and misde-
meanors, resulting in his incarceration at the Pinellas County Jail
for 544 days. The individual's incarceration cost the jail alone more
than $68,000, which does not include costs to the State Attorney's
Office, the Clerk of Court, the Public Defender's Office, the arresting
agency or the court system.
People arrested on warrants issues or failure to appear could be
"diverted to the facility at a savings of $100 a day to the sheriffs (of-
fice)," Foster said.
Commissioner Harriet Crozier said as long as "we are aware of
what's going on and we are proactive with the sheriff and St. Pete
and everybody that's doing this, it may be seamless."
"For a lot of homeless to get there, they are probably going to be
brought in by a police officer," she said.
Commissioner Woody Brown said he was encouraged by that fig-
ure and the savings to the jail and judicial system.
"I'm also encouraged as an option to being in jail," he said.
He asked Carroll if the project would be a savings to the police de-
partment. Though it wouldn't be a direct savings, Carroll said it
could result in some long-term solutions and indirect cost savings.
"Maybe we won't be running on so many man-down calls with the
fire department," he said.
It might provide some indirect savings in paperwork on certain ar-
rests, he said
"It does seem to be an efficient model," Carroll said.
He said that having the homeless at one location might be more
efficient for charitable organizations that want to provide help to
The annex has four pods, and each pod can sleep 150 people,
"We could be creating, especially on a cold night, up to 600 spaces
available," he said.
Foster said the city of St. Petersburg has committed $100,000
from its budget for Safe Harbor and the city of Clearwater is consid-
ering a funding allocation of $50,000.
Through grants obtained by the Pasco-Pinellas Public Defender's
Office and Pinellas County Department of Justice and Consumer
Services, funding has been obtained for treatment and other services
beginning in January.
The grants collaborating to fund the programs and services set for
in the proposed budget come to $1.62 million.
Foster said he also is encouraging a countywide ordinance that
prohibits people from sleeping on public rights of way.
"If they are in your public rights of way when you actually have
space available, no one has a constitutional right to that piece of
sidewalk," he said.

Inmate death under investigation
CLEARWATER- Robbery/Homicide Unit detectives are investigat-
ing the death of a Pinellas County Jail inmate. Detectives responded
to the jail to investigate about noon on Dec. 2.
According to detectives, Myrvin Hagan, 58, was playing checkers
when he grasped his chest and collapsed. Detention deputies per-
formed CPR until Emergency Medical Services responded. The in-
mate was then transported to a local hospital where he was
pronounced dead at 12:21 p.m.
Hagan was housed in the Central Division of the jail in a direct su-
pervision pod with about 90 other inmates. He was being held at the
Pinellas County Jail on charges of violation of parole possession of
cocaine, oxycodone and marijuana.
The Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to deter-
mine the cause and manner of death. The investigation continues.

Commission reaches compromise on tourist taxes
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners insist that a recent
revision of its tourist development plan has nothing to do with base-
ball. They also say it's not about the needs of the Salvador Dali Muse-
um in St. Petersburg.
It's bigger than baseball and the Dali, the majority said at a Nov. 30
meeting. In addition, they agreed with Commissioner Ken Welch who
said, 'This is one of the more important issues we'll consider."
However, consensus was lacking when it came time to approve the
updated tourist development plan presented by the Tourist Develop-
ment Council and a recommendation to extend the fourth cent tourist
After a couple hours of discussion, testimony from the public for
and against, the commissioners voted 4-3 against approval of the new
plan and extension of the fourth cent. The ordinance required a super
majority vote to pass.
The fourth cent currently is paying Tropicana Field's debt obligation,
which expires in 2015. Commissioner Nick Brickfield, who along with
Commissioners Nancy Bostock and Norm Roche voted against the
original ordinance, proposed a compromise motion that calls for the
extension of the fourth cent tourist tax to expire in 2021, after debt ob-
ligations have been fulfilled for Tropicana Field (2015), as well as base-
ball stadiums in Dunedin (2016) and Clearwater (2021).
Commissioners Nancy Bostock and Norm Roche still said no. Bo-
stock is unhappy with the board's lack of input and discussion on the
particulars of the new tourist development plan and an indefinite ex-
tension of the fourth cent.
"I'm really, really trying to support this," Bostock said. "But it keeps
coming back to our process. I'm frustrated we haven't had enough
takes on it."
She said it might be time to consider tourist development as pay-as-
you go the same as the county now views capital improvement funded
by Penny for Pinellas.
"I don't want to close the door on extending the fourth cent," Bo-
stock said. "I just want more of a leadership role in what we're going to
do with it."
Roche offered his own compromise plan to expire the fourth cent as
it is used to today and replace it with the fifth cent. The fourth cent
would then be used to pay for marketing. Dennis Long with the county
attorney's office said Roche's plan might work, but it would take sever-
al revisions of plan categories and allowed uses.
Marketing cannot be paid for using revenue from the fourth cent,
according to rules set forth in the tourist development plan, which
closely follows state law. In addition, the fifth cent cannot exist without
the fourth cent, which was a concern of D.T. Minich, executive director
of St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Minich reminded the commissioners of the importance of maintain-
ing the fourth cent as it related to the fifth after members of the public
and some commissioners suggested letting it expire in the future.
Commission Chair Karen Seel said Roche's plan was "interesting;"
however, she advocated approving the plan as recommended by the
Tourist Development Council. Everything can be revised later, she
A new provision in the updated plan requires a review every five
years. The former plan had remained unchanged for more than 20
years, although over time, five-cents in tourist (bed) taxes were levied.
The commissioners also approved an agreement that promises $2.5
million to the Salvador Dali Museum, with payments of $500,000 a
year scheduled to begin in 2015 after the debt to Tropicana Field is
paid. The museum had initially requested $5 million from the county;
however, the city of St. Petersburg agreed to give $2.5 million if the
county would match it.
The original tourist development plan did not allow funding of capi-
tal projects for non-profit museums open to the public. Under the new
plan, funding is allowed.
An amendment to the interlocal agreement with St. Petersburg relat-
ing to tax increment revenues in the in-town redevelopment area also
Most who spoke in favor of revising the plan and extending the
fourth cent are members of the Tourist Development Council or sup-
porters of the museum. Those speaking against were unhappy with
taxes in general and said taxpayers should not be expected to fund
ventures such as the Dali Museum and a stadium for the Tampa Bay
The commissioners explained that 98 percent of the tourist tax was
paid by visitors not residents of Pinellas County. They also stuck to
the message that changes to the tourist development plan had nothing
to do with the Dali museum or a Rays' baseball stadium.
'This is perceived as a gift to a nonprofit," Brickfield said. "People
are thinking baseball will be next. But it's not about baseball. The si-
lence from baseball is deafening."
Seel said there has been no discussion with the Rays about a new
stadium, a fact confirmed by St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster.
Seel suggested that Commissioner Susan Latvala, who will take over
as commission chair in 2011, schedule a joint work session between
the commissioners and the TDC in the near future. She said it was an
ideal time to update the county's vision for tourism.
'The face of Pinellas County tourism is changing," Seel said.
She said the new plan "allows us to diversify (how tourism tax
money is spent), and if in five years, the world is in a different place,
we can react to that."
She also said that regardless of how the money was earmarked,
projects still had to come before the TDC and county commissioners
Welch, a strong supporter of the revised plan and indefinite exten-
sion of the fourth cent tax, said that everyone should remember "what
this is really about and it's not the Rays."
He talked about the importance of a $7 billion tourism industry and
the five million visitors who come to Pinellas each year.
'There's no commitment to a stadium in this plan," he said. "Beach
renourishment is the most important thing. If you read the tea leaves
... federal dollars for beach renourishment may be going away ... If we
lose that federal money, we could spend the whole 5 cents (of tourist
tax) and not have enough money (to maintain the beaches)."

Rezoning proposed for former Golden Lantern site
By SUZEITE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners
went against the staff recommendation, voting
unanimously Nov. 30 to approve a zoning change for
the site of the former Golden Lantern Mobile Home
Park on Park Boulevard in Pinellas Park.
Most commissioners are familiar with the 19.74-
acre site after struggling through much of 2006-07,
trying to find a compromise between a developer and
displaced mobile park residents. Neighbors adjacent
to the park also expressed concern.
Now, the land is vacant. The new property owner,
Hardy Huntley, who also owns the Wagon Wheel
Flea Market across the street, is asking to rezone the
property from R-6, mobile home parks and subdivi-
sions, to C-2, general retail commercial and limited
services; and PC, preservation conservation.
According to Peter Creighton, Huntley's represen-
tative, the intent is to develop the site for use by a
discount retail big box.
The Local Planning Authority recommended de-
nial of the zoning change for several reasons, includ-
ing concerns expressed by the city of Pinellas Park.
John Cueva, Planning Department zoning manager,
said staff concurred with the LPA recommendation
He said reasons for denial include a lack of need
for more commercial development along Park Boule-
vard; possible adult uses, which are allowed within
C-2 zoning; the proximity to residential areas; and
traffic impact to Park Boulevard.
R.G. Bray, Pinellas Park community planning di-
rector, wrote a letter to the LPA listing the city's con-
cerns, which included traffic, lack of planned
improvements for Park Boulevard, potential increase
in density for land in a storm surge area and 100-
year floodplain, among others.
'The city of Pinellas Park does not favor any land
use designation that increases the population densi-
ty within a storm surge area or 100-year floodplain,"
Bray wrote. "We do not support this site being devel-
oped; all impacts attributable to development upon
this property should be mitigated at time of develop-
ment or be contained in a binding agreement for
construction at some future date."
Cueva said parties were concerned due to a lack
of developer's agreement and the potential land uses
allowed in C-2.
Commissioner Nancy Bostock questioned the
opinion of too much commercial development and
asked if the commissioners had the authority to limit
the number of big box stores around the county.
Bostock was more concerned with finding a way
to create a buffer between commercial property and
the residential neighbors and figuring out a way to
address traffic concerns.
"I would like to look at making this appropriate,"
Cueva said the property owner could be asked to
come back with a developer's agreement after meet-
ing with all the regulatory agencies.
Creighton said after Huntley purchased the prop-
erty, a sit-down with the planning department took
place to talk about the density impact on Park
Boulevard and the neighbors. He said a zoning
change to C-2 rather than CG, commercial general,
had been requested because it allowed for less den-
sity. He said a traffic study had been done that
showed the impact from development of the site to
be within acceptable levels of service.
He said Huntley has owned property in the area
for 50 years and had been in contact with the neigh-
bors about his intention to develop the former mo-
bile home park. He asked them what they wanted
done with two access roads that dead end on the
property and had agreed to close the roads and re-
Creighton said C-2 allowed development next to
residential property with appropriate buffers and
fencing. He said they planned to maintain a fenced
15-foot strip on the east property line, keeping exist-
ing trees and adding more trees as necessary. He
said no pedestrian or vehicular traffic would be al-
lowed. He said the neighbors had been agreeable to
'We believe we have done everything possible to be
sensitive to the neighbors and satisfy the concerns of
planning," Creighton said.
County Attorney Jim Bennett said if the property
owner intended to attach land-use restrictions to ad-
dress concerns about future adult businesses on the
property, that intent needed to be part of an agree-
ment. He advocated using a developer's agreement.
Creighton said if the commissioners would ap-
prove the rezoning, so it could move on to the state
Department of Community Affairs, he would work
with Bennett to come up with an acceptable agree-
'This has been a long and windy road on this
issue," Commissioner Ken Welch said, referring to
problems with the previous proposed development
within the 100-year flood plain.
Creighton said commercial development in the
floodplain was not the same as residential. He said
there would be no problem with commercial-retail
uses. He also said he did not anticipate development
of the property to cause flooding to adjacent areas.
He said Southwest Florida Water Management
District requires that no more water leave a property
after development than it did before. He said the
work would be monitored by SWFWMD.
Commissioner John Morroni said since this would
be the first time a rezoning for commercial for the
property would be submitted to the DCA, it would be
interesting to see if it would be approved.
Bennett said commissioners could approve the re-
zoning and send it on to the DCA with an under-
standing that a developer's agreement was needed.
Planning Director Brian Smith said it would take
DCA about two to three months to approve or deny,
which was plenty of time to work on an agreement.
Creighton assured the commissioners that the
property owner would "do what needs to be done."
Company says it won't tear
down historic Biltmore hotel
By HARLAN WEIKLE
BELLEAIR- While they are still working their
numbers, Senior Care Group, Inc. officials have
revealed their hopes for converting the Belleview
Biltmore into a community resource for the eld-
erly and the families who care for them.
Senior Care has a signed agreement with
KAWA Capital Management, of Miami, to pur-
chase the hotel as part of KAWA's bid to buy the
Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, along with the Ca-
bana Club on Sand Key. They are currently con-
ducting due diligence under their agreement and
have said they will announce their intention early
Senior Care President Kevin McGuinness said,
speaking from his office in Tampa, 'We envision a
wellness community for seniors. It could be the
spa where you come to get your nails done or a
hotel where your mother stays while you're away."
"It is who we are and what we do," McGuinness
elaborated. "We have the service capability and
there is a need in the greater community for this
type of facility."
McGuinness said he has received just a hand-
ful of e-mails from residents expressing disap-
proval of his company's plans to take over the
"I've spoken with a number of them and when I
explained our vision to them, most said they did-
n't know the whole story and thought it was a
good idea," McGuinness said. "Most of those I've
talked to were concerned that we are going to tear
down the hotel or turn it into a nursing home,
nothing could be further from the truth."
"It was never our intention to tear the hotel
down, with the exception of the porte-cochere, of
course," McGuinness observed. "Its architecture
doesn't blend well with that of the hotel."
Belleair Commissioner Stephen Fowler has
raised a potential issue regarding the proposed
usage of the hotel under Senior Care's plan. In a
phone conversation last week, Fowler said that in
his review of the residential and office zoning dis-
tricts, "I don't see a zoning district where an as-
sisted living facility would be allowed."
Fowler, who is an architect, advises the town's
Planning and Zoning Board.
Town Manager Micah Maxwell discussed in a
phone conversation the process for filing a usage
change request to the town's P and Z board. An
application is made to the board which reviews
the proposal and makes a nonbinding recommen-
dation to the town commission.
Maxwell said that the subject of zoning and
usage change was discussed with Senior Care
during their initial meeting.
'They understand the process," he added.
"I can't speak for the board, of course," Maxwell
said, "and they (Senior Care) haven't developed
their proposal to an extent that we could review it
Maxwell went on to say he has some concerns
about parking, but understands it always comes
down to a balance between the effect on the com-
munity and the needs of the community.
Another issue McGuinness addressed stems
from Senior Care's nonprofit status and any al-
leged reduction in tax revenue resulting from their
"Being a nonprofit organization doesn't mean
we're exempt from paying some taxes, fire protec-
tion for instance is one service we're going to re-
quire and pay tax for," he explained.
'We have always intended to pay taxes to the
community. We'll sit down when the time comes
with the town commission and negotiate as with
any other matter. All we ask is a cessation of the
tax burden as though it (the hotel) was a going
Arctic Freeze passes savings on to customers
No franchise fees, no royalties just honest, friendly service
Brett Oneill knows bad service when he sees it. He experi-
enced it firsthand when he bought into an automotive repair
franchise a few years back.
"I thought it would be easy to right-size the company if I
could get control of the ridiculous spending that was taking
place," Brett said.
"They were charging so much rent and royalyties that it was
impossible to save customers money," Brett said. "Shop own-
ers would go broke within two years. This turnover usually
hurt customers, too."
Seeing how the bad business principals of the automotive
repair franchise ulitmately victimize the customer, Brett decid-
ed to strike out on his own.
"I went back to what I knew," Brett said, "which was operat-
ing a successful auto repair shop, making people happy and
saving them money on auto repairs."
"I had a lease on a property but hadn't signed up as a fran-
chisee," Brett explained. "This allowed me to keep my store
and shed the name and all the fees. I then opened a second
store on Seminole Boulevard."
Instead of advertising savings and delivering none because
franchise fees and royalties are so high, at Arctic Freeze Brett
can actually save the customers money. He can afford to use
better parts to repair their vehicles since he doesn't have to pay
thousands of dollars in other fees like franchisees do.
"Also, at Arctic Freeze there's no high pressure fear tactics to
sell," Brett said. "We educate our customers and let them
make an informed, no-pressure decision. This makes for a
much happier customer and a lot of referral business."
Brett treats his customers the way he expects to be treated as
a customer especially when dealing with something as frus-
trating as an unexpected auto repair.
20 qAO SI
Brett Oneill of Arctic Freeze promises customers honest,
From a simple oil change or transmission tune-up, to replac-
ing timing belts or brake pads and repairing A/C systems,
Arctic Freeze has one goal in mind: the customer's satisfaction.
Arctic Freeze customers are so satisfied with the service
they've received, they're happy to sing the praises of Brett's
The dealer wanted $1,198 to fix my car and Brett did it for $587. I
couldn't be happier. I'm telling all my friends about Arctic Freeze.
I stopped at Arctic Freeze to check on having my rear brakes done.
John gave me pricing that my husband and I thought was quite fair
and we said to proceed. When Bob checked the car out he noticed the
front tie rod end was very loose. This totally fixed the front end shak-
ing that I was experiencing. The problem was much less than I had
anticipated. I think Arctic Freeze is an excellent repair shop and I will
definitely return for any other repairs or service.
"My business has actually grown since the separation from
the franchise and my sanity has returned," Brett said. "I feel
like I escaped with my life."
With the money Brett saved by separating from the fran-
chise, he was able to purchase better equipment for his shop,
including tire and balancing machines.
"I can keep my customers from going to high pressure tire
stores," he said. "We also built a compressor rebuilding busi-
ness with another shop owner so we can offer our customers
huge saving on A/C compressors typically the most
expensive part of the A/C system."
Arctic Freeze offers a three-year, 36,000-mile nationwide
warranty. All work includes parts and labor.
"I offer satisfaction guaranteed," Brett said. "If I miss some-
thing or make a mistake, I take care of it at no charge."
Brett also prides himself on having some of the best man-
agers and technicians in the field.

Seminole couple makes volunteerism a full-time job
By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE Since moving to
Seminole 10 years ago, Enid and
Luis Arroyo have put new mean-
ing into the term volunteerism.
Enid, 72, and Luis, 71, are
textbook examples of maintaining
an active retirement life. But
more importantly they're doing it
to give back to the community.
Enid volunteers regularly at
Seminole High School as a tutor

serves as co-chair of the school's

year, but Luis estimated the cou-

hours per year between 2003
It doesn't stop there. The cou-
ple also volunteer at their grand-
son's school in Largo, teach time
management at St. Justin Martyr
Catholic Church, make regular
donations to the Haitian relief

and contribute items to Pinellas

ple throw away and some other
people can use," said Enid.
They also have done work with

On top of that, their volun-
teerism extends into their family.

Enid and Luis Arroyo of Seminole have been actively involved as volunteers in the Pinellas County public
school system for 10 years.
High after one of their two sons
mentioned the county school
system needed volunteers.
Enid, who retired 21 years
ago after a 28-year career with
the federal government, previ-
ously volunteered and later
worked for 11 years at St. Au-
gustine School for the Deaf and
Luis, who retired 15 years ago
after a long career in account-
ing, has been involved heavily
with the Pinellas Education
Foundation for three years.
He works with eighth-graders
to help them learn to budget
through the Finance Park pro-
gram and helps fifth-graders
learn how to run a business
through Enterprise Village.
"I spend more time at the Ed-
ucation Foundation (than at
Seminole High) and I have dif-
ferent experiences," Luis said.
"The staff there is great and the
environment is very pleasant
with all the volunteers."
"We look at students as the
future of our country and I put
teachers on a pedestal because
they do so much," Enid said.
"This is something everyone
should try. There's so many
ways we're paid by them daily."
Luis said they often receive
tokens of appreciation from stu-
dents, which they treasure
"That's our pay," he said.
"You feel good because you
know you did the right thing
one day a week (at the Pinellas
Education Foundation). It's very
enjoyable. Just very enjoyable."

Certain nutritional supple-
ments are made for human con-
sumption and some are
specifically designed for pet con-
sumption. "Extra-label" drug use
refers to the use of an approved
drug in a manner that is not in
accordance with the approved la-
beled directions. An example of
this "extra-label" usage is when a
human supplement is used in a
pet. Pet pharmacy laws advise
veterinarians to use a product la-
beled for the animal it is intended
for over a human equivalent
product. The reason for this is
that in high quality products
there is research done in the ani-
mal it is labeled for to back up its
claims. Most likely your veteri-
narian has already done much of
the leg work to research what are
the best pet supplements on the
market and are recommending
them to you for your pet.
Some of the most popular sup-
plements recommended these

Grouper action continues to be good
We've now seemingly entered a
weather pattern of the worst
kind. A cold front every four days
doesn't give us much opportunity
for stable weather.
This pattern gives us about two
good days fishing per week. Un-

when those days might occur.
If you're lucky enough to get a
nice enough day to venture into

Years of Experience from Someone You Can Trust
Plants that produce flowers on
this year's growth are usually
pruned while dormant (Jan-
uary/February) or just before
the spring growth flush. These
plants include crape myrtle, hi-
biscus, allamanda, plumbago,
frangipani and rose. To encour-
age the most plant growth,
prune just prior to the first
spring growth flush. To slow
growth and keep plants smaller,
prune just after each growth
Again, pinching of new growth
will encourage lateral branching,
and thus produce more flowers.
Most evergreens such as
podocarpus, holly, ligustrum, ju-
niper and wax myrtle can be
pruned anytime. Terminal
growth of pines can be controlled
by removing one-half of the can-
dle (new shoot) in the spring just
prior to needle expansion. This
encourages new bud formation
at the pinch, slows growth on
the pinched branch and creates
a more compact plant. New buds
will not form behind pruning
cuts made into older wood.
Pruning wounds callus (scab)
the best when cuts are made
just before, or immediately fol-
lowing, the spring growth flush.
Quick wound closure is impor-
tant for keeping insects, diseases
and decay organisms from enter-
ing the plant, and it also looks
The smaller the diameter of the
branch that is cut the better it is
for wound closure. Aim to trim
only those branches that are
about the thickness of a finger or
less. When large branches are re-
moved there is a higher likelihood
that disease rotting organisms or
other pests will enter the wood
and cause problems as time pro-
gresses. Another good rule to fol-
low is to only remove one-third or
less of a plant's entire mass when

The first step in pruning a
shrub is to remove all dead, dis-
eased or injured branches. Also,
remove branches that cross or
touch each other, or those grow-
Cut each branch separately to
different lengths with hand
pruners. Cut back long branches
to a bud or lateral branch six to
12 inches below the desired
plant height. When cutting back
terminal shoots, make the cut on
a slight slant a quarter inch
above a healthy bud. The bud
should be facing the direction
you want the branch to grow.
Pruning in this manner creates a
beautiful shrub that does not
show any pruning cuts.
When pruning for a formal
hedge, pruning should be done
while the new growth is green
and tender. Always prune so
that the base of the hedge is
wider than the top. Think of a
Christmas tree shape wider at
the base than at the top. It's best
to cut each branch separately
rather than using hedge shears.
To keep from spreading dis
ease, always clean pruning
equipment with a disinfectant
before using on a new plant. If
pruning diseased branches,
clean equipment before moving
to the next branch.
A good disinfectant to use is a

Indian Rocks Beach officials have approved plans for a facelift in the
narrows along Gulf Boulevard.
Under the project Florida native plantings and Medjool date palms
will line the corridor, which is practically devoid of any landscaping
The beauty of the project is that the state, through a grant, will pick
up the $150,000 tab for the largest landscaping project in the city's
The 18 Medjool date palms, with their 25-foot spreads, will be
placed 80 feet apart. The intent is to allow open space between the tree
trunks for viewing the Intracoastal, while fronds overhead create a
Among the concerns expressed are that the city will have to pay to
maintain the additional landscaping. But the costs of such work ap-
pears to be minimal and pale in comparison to economic benefits of
the work for Indian Rocks Beach and the entire county as well.
The benefits of tourism to the area have been well-documented.
Beautification projects go hand in hand with efforts to promote
Besides palms, the landscaping will include dwarf confederate jas-
mine to be used as ground cover on the west side of the guardrails,
along with parsoni juniper and flowering lantana. Shrubs will include
Indian hawthorn, dwarf oleander, coontie, and zanadu philodendron.
Flowering plants will alternate with evergreen shrubs throughout the

A final act of love
Recently we had to say goodbye to our beloved golden retriever,
Tomba. He was almost 15 years old.
The employees of IRB's Animal Hospital, especially, Angie, April, and of
course, Dr. Matt Facarazzo, took their time in helping us make the deci-
sion. Talking about it was impossible without breaking down. We had to
decide what was good for Tomba and not what we wanted. He was tired,
didn't want to get up anymore, he had severe arthritis, even with all the
medication and care, he was in pain, it was time.
The last thing we wanted to do for his end of life was to take him to Dr.
Matt's office, which always made him quite nervous. We didn't want to
disturb Tomba. We didn't want to change his surroundings. We wanted
him to remain comfortable. So Dr. Matt came to our home. This is a
service he offers.
From the moment Dr. Matt walked into our home he didn't act like the
doctor we were used to seeing during office visits. He was now a caretak-
er of our Tomba and us. He sat with us told us what was going to hap-
pen in avery gentle way. First he administered the relaxing medication to
Tomba; he told us he can hear so talk to him. Tomba slept and listened.
He rested peacefully, his head in my arms, breathing nice and relaxed:
no labored breathing, which he had been doing for quite a few weeks. He
seemed so comfortable; we stayed that way for about 20 minutes, just
talking and rubbing him.
After the second medication was administered, Tomba just quietly and
peacefully slipped away with dignity. Dr. Matt and April, his assistant
then told us to take all the time we needed to be with Tomba. They left,
went outside, so we could be alone with him. After about 20 minutes
they came back in and told us how to handle having our other dog say
Kodi came over, sniffed him, sat next to him put her paws on his,
then, put her paws on me as if to say she understood. Dr. Matt then said
take her out back so she wouldn't see Tomba leaving the house, that way
she wouldn't wait for him or look for him to come back. It made so much
After we came back inside we went to the vehicle where Tomba was
peacefully laid. He looked so beautiful and comfortable, no more stress or
pain in his face. It was the best thing we could have done for our Tomba.
Dr. Matt also made all arrangements for us with Pet Angel for his ashes.
Today, Kodi is doing fine; his recommendation worked. Dr. Matt seems
to really know what your animals need, what they think, how they feel.
So if anyone who reads this is wondering how they should say good-
bye to their pets, think of doing the procedure in your home and call Dr.
Matt of the Indian Rocks Beach Hospital, or ask your vet. This is the
best, final act of love you can do for your beloved pet and friend.
Thank you so much Dr. Matt, Angle, and April. Our appreciation can
never be expressed enough for what you did for our family, Kodi and
Indian Rocks Beach
No excuse for mall's sad shape
I work in one of the small stores in the Seminole Mall. I get these kind
of questions almost every day at work: When is the mall going to close?
Why is it almost empty? How do you stay in business?
Depending upon how my day is going, I either answer the inquiries
with a simple "I don't know" or a "no comment" or I launch into an expla-

The mall is not located in a poor community, although it sure looks
that way when you walk through it. The city of Seminole has thousands
of residents close by, there are three bus lines serving it and three major
roads adjacent to it. It's the closest mall to the beaches and tourists with
money to spend. No excuses! Check other malls in the area; they are not
like this one. Even the small strip shopping centers are more occupied.
I have put forward one idea that very well could bring the mall back to
The nearest outlet mall (Ellenton) is across the Sunshine Skyway
bridge and many go there from Hillsborough and Pinellas. Transform the
empty store fronts into outlet stores and advertise the mall as being the

Some stories waiting to be told
If you read a lot of novels, or watch dozens of
movies a year, you may get the feeling that all
the available story ideas have been taken. But
that's not so. Following are basic plots of sever-
al stories begging to be told.
THE NUTCASE IN THE SUPERMARKET. A
man wearing a bowler hat and not much else
enters a large grocery store and begins to criti-
cize the contents of every shopping cart he
sees. "Why do you need all those
pomegranates? That huge coconut cake will
make you fat. Eight rolls of toilet paper? Is that
all you do all day long?" The store manager
calls security. Shots are fired, followed by an
announcement, "Cleanup needed on Aisle 7,
THE NUN ON THE SCHOOL BUS. With its
red warning lights blinking, a big yellow school
bus comes to a halt on a busy street. All traffic
stops as motorists wait for the children to
alight. But nobody gets out. After ten minutes,
a motorist approaches the open door of the
bus. He climbs in and discovers the bus is
empty except for a skeleton slumped over the
steering wheel. A forensic investigation reveals
the skeleton to be that of a French nun missing
since 1908. Her name was Cecile, and she
DALI AND DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. A rich,
sexy dark-haired woman enters an art muse-
um and seeks out a Salvador Dali painting. It
shows the limp face of a clock draped over the
haunches of a lion feasting on a dead ostrich.
The woman studies the clock face and then
summons the museum's curator. She says,
'That clock does not show Daylight Saving
Time. Move the clock hands and I will give you
sixteen million dollars." The curator refuses,
and the mysterious rich woman storms out.

Lennar, one of the nation's largest home builders,
has joined the Mousethruthehouse.com Network,
an innovative online system that provides home
shoppers with free front-door-to-front-door video
tours of hundreds of model homes throughout cen-
tral Florida without leaving home.
Miami-based Lennar has made a major commit-
ment to Mousethruthehouse by contracting with the
website to video and post more than 30 model
homes in communities throughout Hillsborough,
Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Lake and Orange counties.
With just five clicks of a computer mouse, con-
sumers can find the home they want (and cyber-
walk through it) in the community they desire at the
price they can afford, all from the convenience of
their computer screen. And unlike typical virtual
tours that use a few still photos, Mousethruthe
house.com's comprehensive video tours explore
every room, every closet, storage areas, under-cabi-
net pullout shelves and much more.
Mousethruthehouse.com is a division of John
Heagney Public Relations, a Tampa Bay area real-
estate public relations firm. It features more than
250 complete video walking tours of model homes
from about three dozen builders in six central Flori-
da counties including Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas,

A peek at 2011 movie lineup
More warring wizards, re-imagined monsters, super-heroes
By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
With this year's most memorable films already starting to fade into
history, Hollywood studios are busy hyping next year's feature film
lineup with teasers and Internet trailers.
First ... what were the best movies of 2010?
To date, the top box office moneymakers include 'Toy Story 3,"
"Alice in Wonderland," "Iron Man 2," 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and
"Inception." "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1," released
Nov. 19, has already made it into the top ten and will almost certainly
be in the top three by the end of the year.
While most of the top ten box office success stories this year aren't
particularly surprising, some of the year's biggest flops are. Stars Beni-
cio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins couldn't keep 'The Wolfman" from
exiting theaters quickly, its proverbial tail tucked between its legs. Rid-
ley Scott's "Robin Hood," starring Russell Crowe, may have proved
that one more adaptation of an age-old tale may not always be a wise
Disney had two very strong releases in 2010 ... and then there was
the Nicolas Cage film "The Socerer's Apprentice" which apparently
lacked the magic to find a place in the urban fantasy niche. Disney's
"Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" didn't live up to its potential, ei-
ther, providing yet another indication that movies based on video
games aren't sure-fire box office winners.
It's difficult to qualify 'The A-Team" as a flop since it brought in $75
million. Keep in mind, though, it cost $110 million to make. Other
films which underperformed in 2010 include "Jonah Hex," "Scott Pil-
grim vs. the World" and "Repo Men."
It was a particularly bad year for M. Night Shyamalan. Many movie-
goers and film critics seem to be pointing at Shyamalan's 'The Last
Airbender" as the biggest flop of 2010.
While the films of 2010 seemed centered on super-heroes, fantasy
tales and sauve vampires, next year's lineup ... well, next year's lineup
boasts more of the same. Following are some of the highlights and
potential flops of the 2011 movie lineup. Release dates are subject to
Comic book capers
"Green Lantern" will be released June 17.
Set in a universe as vast as it is mysterious, the film examines a
small but powerful force which has existed for centuries: the Green

Amanda Seyfried stars as Valerie in Warner Bros. Pictures' romantic
fantasy thriller "Red Riding Hood," a Warner Bros. Pictures release.
A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each
Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a
new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in
the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their
newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have lit-
tle respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers
of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle,
and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no
member of the Corps has ever had: humanity.
With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart

Opening this week
The Pevensies return to Narnia while Depp and Jolie become entangled in intrigue
Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE
A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the
following films opening in wide release:
'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the
Genre: Action, adventure and fantasy
Cast: Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Ben Barnes, Will Poulter
and Lauren Brent
Director: Michael Apted
Return to the magic and wonder of C.S. Lewis' beloved world via
the fantastic Namian ship, the Dawn Treader.
In this new installment of the blockbuster 'The Chronicles of Nar-
nia" motion picture franchise, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with
their cousin Eustace, their royal friend King Caspian, and a warrior
mouse named Reepicheep, find themselves swallowed into a painting
and on to the Dawn Treader. Their mission on which rests the fate of
Narnia itself- takes the courageous voyagers to mysterious islands
and a river that turns to gold, to fateful confrontations with magical
creatures and sinister enemies, and to a reunion with their friend and
protector, the "Great Lion" Asian.
Genre: Drama and thriller
Cast: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton
and Steven Berkoff
Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
Johnny Depp stars as an American tourist whose playful dalliance
with a stranger leads to a web of intrigue, romance and danger in 'The
During an impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank
(Depp) unexpectedly finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise
(Angelina Jolie), an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his
path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their
whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves unwittingly
thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse.
The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks be-
fore these films appear in local movie theaters.
Genre: Drama, sports and biopic
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams and
Director: David O. Russell
Dicky Ecklund (Christian Bale) is a former boxing legend that
squandered his talents and threw away his shot at greatness.
Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), his half brother, is the struggling
journeyman boxer who spent his life living in his big brother's shadow.
'The Fighter" is the inspirational, true story of these two brothers
who, against all the odds, come together to train for a historic title
bout that will unite their fractured family, redeem their pasts and, at
last, give their hard-luck town what it's been waiting for: pride.
The story unfolds on the gritty, blue-collar streets of Lowell, Mass.,
where Dicky was once known as 'The Pride of Lowell" having gone the
distance with the world champion Sugar Ray Leonard. However, after
losing that fight, like the town of Lowell, Dicky's fallen on hard times.
His boxing days are behind him and his life has become shattered by
Younger brother Micky, meanwhile, has become the family's fighter
and fading hope for a champion. But despite all of his work, Micky's
career is failing and he loses fight after punishing fight. Dicky and
Micky's tougher-than-nails mother, Alice (Melissa Leo), manages his
career and Dicky serves as his highly unreliable trainer. When Micky's
latest fight nearly kills him, it looks like it could all be over until his
iron-willed new girlfriend, Charlene (Amy Adams), convinces him to do
the unthinkable: split with his family, pursue his own interests and
train without his increasingly volatile and criminal brother.
Now Micky has the chance of a lifetime as he earns a shot at the
World Championship. But when his brother and dysfunctional family

Genre: Drama and fantasy
Cast: Helen Mirren, Russell Brand, Reeve Carney, Tom Conti and
Director: Julie Taymor
In 'The Tempest," Julie Taymor, director, filters Shakespeare's time-
less comedy of revenge, romance and reconciliation through her
unique visual prism with an all-star cast.
2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest."
Believed to be one of the last plays Shakespeare wrote alone, the spec-
tacular fantasy comes to life under Taymor's trademark visual flair
and creative direction. Taymor's film version of 'The Tempest" presents
even the most devoted Shakespeare fans an opportunity to experience
one of the bard's most beloved works in a unique and exhilarating new
In Taymor's 'The Tempest," the director brings an original dynamic
to the story by changing the gender of the traditionally male sorcerer
Prospero into the sorceress Prospera portrayed by Helen Mirren.
Prospera's journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she
reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda,
and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this mas-
terly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural.
After a harrowing shipwreck, the members of a royal court are
washed ashore on various parts of a mysterious island. Their fateful
arrival on this particular island is no coincidence. The exiled Prospera
(Mirren) has used her magical powers to guide the ship here to settle a
score with the very men who banished her from her homeland. Abet-
ted by her sometimes unwilling aides, Ariel (Ben Whishaw) and Cal-
iban (Djimon Hounsou), Prospera puts her former tormentors through
some dangerous and often hilarious adventures.
However, when the king's son, Ferdinand (Reeve Carney), meets her
daughter, Miranda (Felicity Jones), it is love at first sight -a kind of
magic that even Prospera is powerless to control.
'Hemingway's Garden of Eden'
Genre: Drama, romance and war
Cast: Mena Suvari, Jack Huston, Caterina Murino, Richard E.
Grant and Carmen Maura
Director: John Irvin
Set in the jazz age years, prior to the depression, the story follows a
successful young American writer, David Bourne (Jack Huston), and
his beautiful wife, Catherine (Mena Suvari), on their extended honey-
moon in Europe. Catherine soon becomes restless and starts to test
her husband's devotion, pushing him to the limits of her imagination.
Already unsure of the games his wife is playing, David is both un-
comfortable and curious when she brings a sultry Italian girl, Marita
(Caterina Murino), to spice things up. As the erotic game reaches new
levels, the events that follow will change their lives forever.

ATTRACTIONS, from page 1 B
Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers
and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not
only the key to defeating Parallax ... he will become the greatest Green
Lantern of all.
"The Green Hornet" will be released Jan. 14.
That's right: Two green heroes for 2011.
Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los Angeles' largest newspa-
per fortune, is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain
a directionless existence.
When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) dies, Britt meets an
impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They
realize that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with
their lives and finally step out of James Reid's shadow. Kato builds the
ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every
weapon imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they
will pose as villains.
With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz),
they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chud-
nofsky (Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power,
and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the
prosperous criminal underworld he controls.
That's just the beginning. Other super-heroes scheduled to leap
from comic book pages onto the big screen in 2011 include "Thor," di-
rected by Kenneth Branagh, on April 11; "X-Men: First Class," direct-
ed by Matthew Vaughn, on June 3; and "The First Avenger: Captain
America," directed by Joe Johnston, on July 22.

Oscar winner Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman star in this supernatu-
ral action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend
who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their
world destroyed by the Plague.
The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is
responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the
strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an an-
cient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing,
action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they
discover the girl's dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifying-
ly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" will be released
In Part 2 of the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil
forces of the Wizarding world escalates into an all-out war.
The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. Harry Potter
may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer
to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
Looking for more fantasy titles? Hollywood will conjure up many
more in 2011 including a new adaptation of Robert E. Howard's pulp

The film follows Valerie (Amanda Seyfried), a beautiful young

(Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are plan-
ning to run away together when they learn that Valerie's older sister
has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surround-
ing their village.
For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the
beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a
blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human
life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter,
Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But
Solomon's arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that
the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them.
As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that

"The Thing" will be released Oct. 14.
The film will serve as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982

Set in Antarctica, the film centers on an isolated outpost where a
discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival
when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The
shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned
colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living
In the thriller "The Thing," paranoia spreads like an epidemic
among a group of researchers as they're infected, one by one, by a
mystery from another planet. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Eliza-
beth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition
of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled
across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an or-
ganism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about
to wake up.
When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison,
Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from
killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a para-
site that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against
human as it tries to survive and flourish.
In 2011, science fiction fans also can look forward to a reboot of
the Planet of the Apes franchise with the release of "Rise of the
Apes" on June 24; as well as "Cowboys and Aliens," a sci-fi western
pairing Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig set to be released July 29.
"Cars 2" will be released on June 24.
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the in-
comparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their
friendship to exciting new places in "Cars 2" when they head over-
seas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the
world's fastest car.
But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes,
detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an in-
triguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Tom between
assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the
line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater's action-packed journey leads
him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe,
trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the
fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret
agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.

clude "Gnomeo and Juliet," Feb. 11; "Winnie the Pooh," July 15;

Making This Right
Health and Safety
For information visit: bp.com
"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?
Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it
helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.
Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
'T_.721 -- -- c-- --:=- .- -r :--- --
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.
Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the nt ie n me y shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
