The center has about 7,300 square feet of stu-
dio space for performances, dance and art classes.
''There is definitely unique aspects to each of
these rooms," Jensen said. "There's a lot of re-
search into every aspect what's the best flooring

Clear skies in Tampa Bay allowed for a perfect view of the total lunar eclipse early Dec. 21,
aligning with the winter solstice. The last time these two events lined up was not since 1638,
according to Geoff Chester, public affairs officer at the U.S. Naval Observatory.

LARGO Here's a peek at the new Largo Community Cen-
ter: Soft lighting, a mosaic with a woodlands theme, large
touch screen computers, low-resistance exercise equipment,
decorative drainage devices, an auditorium, a card room, a
kiln.
Getting the picture? If not, the image will become sharper
for visitors during the grand opening of the center Sunday,
Jan. 9.
"I think the major point about any public building is that
explaining what something looks like early in the process is
nearly impossible," said Jason Jensen, an architect on the
project. "The

or seeing a pic-
ture of it. It's en-
tirely different. You can't get the feeling of a sculpture until
you are there," said Jensen.
Construction of the $10 million 30,000-square-foot Com-
munity Center, located at 400 Alt. Keene Road, was mostly
completed by the end of November.
''The building was built with the reduction of maintenance
costs in mind," said Largo Senior Management Analyst
Charles Jordan.
City officials expect to have little maintenance on the exte-
rior of the building. Because the walls are made of colored
concrete, they shouldn't require painting over the estimated
lifespan of the building, which is 35 years.
They also don't expect to increase the size of the existing
staff even though the building is 10,000 square feet more
than the old community center.
A lobby has a central open area for staff that provides
them with "a whole look throughout the complex" instead of
spreading them throughout the building, Jordan said.
Monitors will provide security service cameras footage so
"staff can see what's gong on around the building," Jordan
said.
"At the same time we have developed a greeter's station for
the volunteers to help out the community center so they can
do more of the personal interaction with the patrons coming
into the center, so our staff is working on the programming
that's going on at the center," Jordan said.
The building has about a dozen rooms for programs, such
as the card room. A 1,200-square-foot fitness center has low-
resistance exercise equipment designed more for senior citi-
zens because people in that age group are avid users of the
community center.
Two large touch-screen computer stations housed in the
lobby area are designed for seniors to provide easy access to
the Inter et for whatever they need to do. The stations don't

corporated a number of notable design elements in the

Designed to accommodate 450 people, the auditorium has
a laminate wood floor, and "it's for anything and everything,"
Jordan said.
''The community center provides a lot of different types of
programming, from square dances all the way up to ballet re-

The stage has three levels and is "pretty much
controlled the same as a major stage, such as the
Cultural Center," Jordan said.
It has rear-projection equipment for movie
nights. A retractable screen is the same size as
screens used for motion pictures at theaters.
"That's another opportunity for additional rev-
enue and additional programming," Jordan said.

The recent bout of cold weather
has been hard on creatures that
make their home in the state's wa-
tenrways.
'Tw~enty sea turtles suffering from
cold stun have been admitted to the
Cleanrwater Marine Aquarium since
Dec. 13, according to Danielle
O'Neil, manager of Sea Turtle pro-
gram.
Cold stun happens when the
temperature of the water drops
below the turtle's normal body tem-
perature. Their metabolic rate drops
and they stop swimming and eat-
ing, and end up floating.
O1\Neil said all were juvenile green
sea turtles found in locations from


Crystal River down to North Reding-
ton Beach. They were admitted with
very low body temperatures, some
in the low 50s.
After arriving at CMA, the turtles
were triaged by starting to slowly
warm them up using hot water
bags and heating pads and warm
ambient temperatures. They also
received supplements and some-
times medications to combat any
underlying infection or cause of de-
bilitation, she said.
CMA staff is experienced in treat-
ing sea turtles suffering from cold
stun.
During a four-day period inJan-
uary, thousands of sea turtles were

City discusses design plans
for recreation center
LARGO City commissioners are leaning toward the option of
building a 39,862-square-foot Highlands recreation center instead
of alternative plans that will result in a smaller facility.
ce the wor ctsio Dc. commissioners sa11d3themlarger
would best meet their needs for the future.
"Let's get the bigger bang for your buck," Commissioner Curtis
Holmes said.
Mayor Pat Gerard said it would be less expensive to build the
bigger facility now than to pay additional costs of expanding it
later. Commissioner Gig Arntzen agreed.
"I think looking down the road 20 years from now, 30 years
from now, the growth, the opportunities that are available for the
difference in price, the difference in size, I think we should shoot
for option C," she said.
Option B calls for a 34,006-square-foot building at $12.6 mil-
lion. Option A calls for a 26,834-square-foot building at $11.5 mil-


lion.
Some Commissioners also liked plans for two-full sized courts -
one for basketball and the other for other sports but they spoke
out against an indoor track.
"I'm not sure we need an indoor jogging track," said Mayor Pat
Gerard. "Because I wouldn't want to go around the building 15
times to gtsin a milled eseialleeif e aclgoino to hrn trle m ed "

area because people run "outside in Florida.,,
City officials will continue to discuss the design plans for the
complex with the City Commission in the ensuing months.
All the options are within the budget for the project.
"We also want to emphasize particularly with regard to the cost
of this project that we are designing and ultimately constructing
not just a recreation building but an active park setting with nu-
merous amenities on that site," said Assistant city Manager Henry
Schubert.

City offers curbside tree recycling
LARGO The city's Recycling and Solid Waste Division will offer


free Christmas tree recycling collection from Dec. 27 through Jan.

This service is available only to current city garbage collection
customers. Customers should place their tree by the curb on their
recycling day during the special two-week post-holiday collection.
Trees should not be placed in a plastic bag for collections. Resi-
dents must remove ornaments, tinsel, lights and tree stands, and
place their decoration-free tree by the curb on their recycling day.
Residents who are unsure of their recycling day can call 587-6760
or visit www.LargoRecycles. com.
Residents who don't have city garbage and recycling services
should inquire with their waste collection company about this tree
recycling service. If no service is available, remember, a Christmas
tree is biodegradable and compostable; its branches may be re-
moved, chipped, and used as mulch in the garden.
One should never burn a Christmas tree in a fireplace or wood
stove. Pines, firs and other evergreens have a high content of
flammable turpentine oils. For more green Holiday tips visit
www.LargoRecycles.com or call 587-6760.

placed in facilities across the state all suffering from cold stun. CMA vol-
unteers and staff treated more than 100 turtles and set up a special fund
for donations to help pay expenses associated with the care. AquaCal, a
local pool supply company loaned CMA $45,000 worth of heaters and
chillers to help accommodate and keep warm as many sea turtles as possi-
ble. The equipment also allowed CMA to heat Winter and Panama's pool
during the record-setting cold.
Thanks to community support, many of the turtles treated by CMA sur-
vived and were released when conditions allowed.
CMA opened a new sea turtle rehabilitation area in April that houses
nine turtle pools and can hold up to 20 sea turtles. The new space allowed
the nonprofit organization to triple its capacity, making it one of the largest
sea turtle rehabilitation facilities in the state.
O'Neil said financial donations and volunteers are always needed at

The cold temperatures have been hard on sea turtles statewide. The
Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission reported on Dec. 17 that more
than 250 cold stunned sea turtles had been pulled from the cold water this
week. Many were close to death, the FWC said in a press release.
The majority of the turtles were found in Indian River, Gulf and Pinellas
counties. Most were green turtles and most are expected to survive.
FWC biologists say the warming trend should end the need for turtle res-
cue this weekend; however, winter does not officially begin until Dec. 21, so
additional bouts of cold weather could cause problems in the future.

green standards. The center has been constructed to be 42 percent
more energy efficient than a similar building under 2007 building
codes. Energy costs are expected to be $56,000 less annually.
The Community Center includes low flow faucets, dual flush toi-
lets, low flow urinals and low flow showerheads. The fixtures will re-
duce the total water used per year by about 112,000 gallons,
according to a city report.
The stonn water treatment system includes decorative rain chains
and runnels, which, basically, are small streams. The on-site system
is designed to reduce the amount of water and flooding going to ad-
joining neighborhoods.
The building is designed to withstand wind loads of up to 140
mph, exceeding Florida Building Code standards.

IARGO The staff of the Armed Forces Military
Museum recently traveled to Texas to obtain a Rus-
sian MiG21.
The plane arrived at The Armed Forces Military
Museum Dec. 17 on a flatbed. The wings were taken
off for transportation and will be reattached once
the plane is placed in its pennanent spot for public
display.
"The Armed Forces Military Museum is proud to
add this very unique and historical piece of aviation
to our pennanent collection. The AFMM will plan an
unveiling ceremony which will be open to the public
in early 2011," said a museum news release.
This MiG21 is single-seat fighter aircraft. Some


50 countries over four continents have flown the So-
viet-made MiG21, according to Artfact, an auction
database.
"'The fighter made aviation records. At least by
name, it is the most-produced supersonic jet air-
craft in aviation history and the most-produced
combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had
the longest production run of a combat aircraft,"
Artfact's website said.
The Armed Forces Military Museum is located at
2050 34th Way N. It is a nonprofit foundation dedi-
cated to preserving "our military history and educat-
ing current and future generations as to the
sacrifices made by many to preserve our freedom."

Police department to bring back
its marine unit
CLEARWATER At the Dec. 12 City Council work
session, police Chief Tony Holloway sought the coun-
cil's permission to spend $47,991 for a Contender 23
Open boat with a Yamaha F250 outboard motor and
trailer. If the purchase is approved at the council's Dec.
16 meeting, as expected, it will be the first time since
the late 1980s that Clearwater has had a police boat.
Cleanrwater is a beach town. Its primary asset is its
location, nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa
Bay.
A quarter-century ago, the Clearwater Police Depart-
ment had a boat that could have been the envy of the
fictional cops on the Miami Vice television show. But
maintaining the vessel's three high-perfonnance en-
gines became a money pit. Also, Clearwater Marine
Unit cops were frequently asked to help U.S. Customs
and other agencies in locations as far away as Sarasot'
making them unavailable to handle emergencies in
Clearwater.
City officials reluctantly decided to sell the boat and
disband the marine unit. But Holloway has decided
that now is the time to resurrect the unit, on a smaller
scale.
"The city of Clearwater is surrounded by approxi-
mately 50 square miles of watenrways that are under the
jurisdiction of the city," according to a police memo to
the City Council. "The city currently has no way to proj-
ect its authority and encourage boating safety other
than reliance on the generosity of other law enforce-
ment entities such as the Fish and Wildlife Commission
and Pinellas County Sheriff~s Office.
"Cleanrwater Harbor and Clearwater Pass are among
the busiest watenrways in the county. With the recent
addition of the downtown boat slips and public docks
on North Mandalay (Avenue), traffic on the watenrways


will further increase, necessitating increased boating
safety activities and enforcement. (Our) law enforce-
ment counterparts have experienced budget reductions,
reducing the amount of time they have been able to
spend policing our jurisdiction."
After evaluating several boat and motor combina-
tions, police officials decided that the Contender 23
Open boat and Yamaha F250 outboard motor "is an ex-
cellent compromise between speed and efficiency" and
"will provide a safe and reliable platform from which to
conduct boarding's and operations in the nonnal patrol
area while still providing the ability to respond in mod-
erate weather," according to the police memo.
Unlike its predecessor, the new boat is not intended
to be a high-speed pursuit craft and will not be sent to
assist agencies in other cities. "This is just for here in
Clearwater," Chief Holloway told the council.
When not in use, the boat will be kept behind the po-
lice substation on Cleanrwater Beach. Its primary patrol
station, when not responding to emergencies, will be in
the Gulf of Mexico within a half-mile of Cleanrwater
Beach, where its highly visible presence will be a deter-
rent to lawbreaking boaters. But, if necessary, it can be
taken by trailer to the Courtney Campbell Parkway for
launching into Tampa Bay.
Thle part-time marine unit will be activated on week-
ends during the peak boating season between April and
September, on certain specified holidays and during
spring break. Its primary mission will be to promote
boating safety. When not busy with more urgent tasks,
marine unit officers will distribute boating safety
brochures provided by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
at no cost to the city.

Mader Beac hd Br C iscusses
fire consolidation
MADEIRA BEACH An agreement to possibly con-
solidate the fire departments of Madeira Beach and
Treasure Island is being worked out.


Thle Madeira Beach Commission gave an approval for
City Manager W.D. Higginbotham to come up with an
arrangement that would, in Higginbotham's words, "en-
able the two departments to function as one." The topic
was on the Dec. 7 workshop agenda.
At issue is the departments' rating by the state Insur-
ance Services Office, which affects the insurance rates
of residents and businesses. The ISO scores fire depart-
ments based on categories that include equipment,
training, communications systems and personnel. All
categories except personnel take into account a mutual
aid agreement among the county's various fire depart-
ments.
So, for example, a department that had no ladder
truck would be credited if another nearby department
did. However, the ISO rates each department's staffing
individually, and requires at least four firefighters re-
spond to every call.
Thle Madeira Beach Fire Department does not have
the personnel to meet that requirement, but has com-
mitted to paying firefighters overtime to do so, Higgin-
botham explained.
Thle ISO is issuing new fire ratings next year, and the
Madeira Beach department wants to maintain its "4"
score, or possibly improve to a "3," Higginbotham said.
To do so, the department will have to obtain more fund-
ing to pay overtime expenses, or hire additional person-
nel.
A merger of some sorts with Treasure Island would
create a "two-station department," assuring that units
from both communities respond to a call, Madeira
Beach fire Chief Bill Mallory said. So even two firefight-
ers on each engine would meet the four firefighter per
call requirement, he said.
Ironically, the required response is already being met
through the county's mutual aid agreement, but that
does not count for ISO purposes, Higginbotham noted.
He said an agreement that would allow the Madeira
Beach and Treasure Island departments to function, as
one department "is clearly the most efficient and eco-


nomical way to go."
Maintaining or improving the department's Iso rat-
ing would benefit both city residents and businesses
through lower insurance rates, Higginbotham added.

Redington Beach passes
air conditioner ordinance
REDINGTON BEACH The Town Commission
passed on first reading an ordinance requiring the con-
cealment of some air conditioning units during its regu-
lar board meeting on Dec. 7.
Commissioner David Will said the air conditioning
ordinance came up following a situation encountered
by the Board of Adjustment. Neighbors were seeking
variances to increase the height of their fences beyond
the allowed six feet to block views of neighbors' air con-
ditioners.
Under terms of the new ordinance, new or replace-
ment air conditioning units over six feet in height would
need to be concealed to limit the impact on nearby
properties.
Thle proposed ordinance, which was adapted from an
existing ordinance in Belleair Beach, would also affect
noise level. Thle noise level of new and replacement air
conditioners could not exceed a noise level of 70 dB.
Thle town already has noise level limitations on gen-
erators. There will be a public hearing and second read-
ing on the proposed ordinance at the Jan. 4 town
commission meeting.
Thle Town Commission passed on first reading an or-
dinance putting a little more teeth into its no-solicita-
tion ordinance allowing for violators to be fined.
Thle commission also discussed concerns about ven-
dors leaving stuff on people's doorsteps especially sea-
sonal residents and why would a vendor keep dropping
off literature when a pile of papers and advertisements
was already on the porch. The city attorney will verify
the constitutionality of the proposed ordinance before
its second reading in January.


rescued Dec. 15 from the chilly waters of Bayboro Harbor in st. Petersburg.
A concerned citizen spotted the manatee and called authorities, accord-
ing to a FWC press release.
Biologists pulled the 7-foot manatee from the water near the Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute after determining it needed help. FWC officials
said the manatee was thin and showed signs of cold stress, a condition that
happens after exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees for long
periods.
The public can report dead or distressed manatees or sea turtles by call-
ing the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).
The FWC cautions boaters in the greater Tampa Bay area to be on the
lookout for manatees as they move to warm-water refugees during cold
weather periods. Local warm-water refugees include the Tampa Electric
Company discharge canal and into the area around the Progress Energy
generating station southwest of the Gandy Bridge.
FWC law enforcement officers are strictly enforcing manatee-protection-
zone speed limits to aid the animals while they are most vulnerable to ves-
sel strikes. To avoid striking manatees, FWC advises vessel operators to
wear polarized sunglasses to make manatees more visible in the water and
to watch for the large, tell-tale circular slicks on the surface of the water
(manatee footprints) that indicate the presence of manatees,

Record number of manatees killed
by cold in 2010
State officials are concerned about a recent upswing in manatee deaths
due to cold temperatures. Cold stress is listed as cause of death for 244 of
699 manatees who died between Jan. 1 and Dec. 5.
The number of manatee deaths through early December 2010 is nearly
double the five-year average for the time-period, according to a report re-
leased by the FWC on Dec. 10.
Officials said cold temperatures likely contributed to the deaths of an ad-
ditional 271.
"We are very concerned about the unusually high number of manatee

deaths this year," Gil McRae, director of the FWRI, said in a press release.
He said the cold-related deaths this past winter showed the importance
of warm-water habitat to Florida's manatees.
"Maximizing access for manatees to natural warm-water sites will contin-
ue to be a focus for the FWC and our partners moving forward," he said.
He also said biologists would be collecting data from monitoring pro-
grams over the next few years to determine if there are long-term implica-
tions for the manatee population.


The building has a "tremendous connection to nature," Jordan
said. Huge oak trees on the south side of the Community Center
loom over a passive park that includes a gazebo and could be used
for gatherings and live entertainment.
"A lot of these original trees we protected through the construction
process," Jordan said.
The landscaping includes native and noninvasive plants as the
city strived to be environmentally sensitive in the project. A commu-
nity garden is also planned.
A public art piece on the front of the building will provide visitors
and passers-by "a feeling of warmth and community," a city report
said. The mosaic is called "'The Woodlands."
"It's supposed to tie in the whole woodland and natural feel of the
building but also give it a little color to the outside," Jordan said.
The artwork was among the features of the building that caused


the most debate among city commissioners during the design pro-
cess. Some city commissioners were hoping to use local artists' work
at a reduced cost. Kessler Studios of Loveland, Ohio, received the
contract in February for the work at a cost of $90,000.
Also controversial was the funding of the project. Commissioners
Mary Black and Curtis Holmes argued against borrowing $10 mil-
lion to be financed with Penny for Pinellas funds. Commissioners
voted to approve the financing, and construction began in January
2009; the construction management firm is Creative Contractors
Inc.
The grand opening of the center will be held Sunday, Jan. 9, noon
to 5 p.m. A barbershop quartet and Tutterow dancers will provide
entertainment. Hot dogs and chips will be served at the free event.
The center will be open for business Monday, Jan. 10.
Call 518-3131 or visit PlayLargo.com


A community garden will be established south of the building.

CLEARWATER Pinellas Safe
Harbor could be a solution to one of
the biggest problems plaguing the
county's criminal justice system.
Pinellas County commissioners
agreed Dec. 14 to support the new
jail diversion program proposed by
Sheriff Jim Coats.
The unanimous decision came
after a very lengthy discussion and
an attempt by Commissioner Nancy
Bostock to table the issue until
county staff could make a recom-
mendation.
In the end, Coats got what he
asked for-with some conditions.
ciale connn ssioners limited finan-
amount already budgeted mn 2011

the Timberwoods complex Dec.

the fire started in the master bed-

still unknown.


are chronic offenders stay out of the
court system. It will be open to in-
mates released from the county jail
and state prisons. It also will serve
as an alternative facility for ordi-
nance violators, who now are taken
to jail and then released on their
own recognizance to return to the
streets because they have nowhere
else to go.
Chief Deputy Robert Gualtieri
said it was likely the program would
improve conditions in the Highpoint
Community because it would give
people released from jail a place to
go instead of "just wandering
around the neighborhood." He
agreed that a better job could be
done to communicate with the
neighbors.
The Sheriff~s Office scheduled an
information session and facility tour
for residents and business owners
concerned about Pinellas Safe Har-
bor on Dec. 20, 5:30 p.m., at the fa-
cility, 14840 49th st. N.
Repeat offenders are trapped in a
cycle, officials say. After the initial
arrest, usually for an ordinance vio-
lation, they are arrested again after
failing to appear in court. Then the
judge sentences them to jail, some-
times for as long as 10 days or more
- a costly burden on the jail system.

inmate in the county jail. Estimated

No other injuries were report-
ed. The investigation continues.

The sheriff plans to open the fa-
cility in January. The annex build-
ing can house 500, but Gualtieri
said they planned to start out with
no more than 250 even less -
while they ironed out the process.
Currently about 200 jail inmates
sleep on the floor. Many are repeat
offenders of ordinance violations.
The new facility could help ease that
overcrowding.

More than a shelter
Giving people a place to stay with
access to toilet and shower facilities
is the first step in what officials
hope will make Pinellas Safe Harbor
a successful jail diversion program
as opposed to just another home-
less shelter.
The facility is not appropriate for
those who are new to homelessness
and it will not accept children. It will
accept people with addictions or
Other problems that make them in-
eligible for traditional shelter pro-
grams.
The sheriff plans to collaborate
with social action groups to offer ad-
ditional assistance aimed at getting
people off the streets and out of the
jails pennanently.

and Justice Department and a

year's operational costs. Other
funding is coming from municipali-
ties. The city of St. Petersburg has
pledged $100,000, and Mayor Bill
Foster has agreed to provide trans-
portation from the jail back to st.
Petersburg for ordinance violators
who do not choose to enter safe
Harbor.
Those arrested will get a choice,
Gualtieri said. After registering, they
will be free to come and go except
for a nighttime curfew, which can
be waived for jobs.
Foster is traveling around the
county asking municipalities to do-
nate to the cause. Thus far, Pinellas
Park has pledged $50,000. Clear-
water and Largo also are expected
to chip in.
Clearwater Vice Mayor John
Doran confined that his city sup-
ported the project, although had
not yet discussed a financial contri-
bution.
"It's reasonable to say we will be
there," Doran said. "This is some-
thing that needs to be done.
Foster acknowledged a large por-
tion of the county's homeless popu-
lation gathered in st. Petersburg
and that many of the repeat offend-
ers are arrested for st. Petersburg's
ordinance violations. Foster also de-

'"This is not just a st. Petersburg

Foster plans to continue seeking

ipalities, asking for $25,000 to

$5,000 to $10,000 from smaller
municipalities. He also plans to talk
to local businesses for funding.

Support from
SeVeral Officials
Public Defender Bob Dillinger,
Chief Judge of Pinellas-Pasco Cir-
cuit court Thomas McGrady and
Pinellas-Pasco state Attorney
Bernie McCabe praised the new
program and gave it their uncon-
ditional support.
McCabe told a story about a
man who was "arrested at least
every other day until he died" and
said it was chronic offenders like
that man who created a burden
on the court system.
McGrady called Pinellas Safe
Harbor a "potential great solu-
tion" to a "very serious problem."
"I think we should give it a try,"
he said.
Dillinger talked about the chal-
lenges ahead and the need to
"sell the program to the home-
less."
He said outreach teams were
on the streets trying to explain to



if they did not comply. He de-
manded money.
Pancoast was convicted in

Time of year when residential
dock fishing can be very good.
Long, dead-end canals hold heat
and the fish know that. Finding
a string of productive docks can
yield redfish, black drum and

Think of it as an inshore an-

large schools of mullet. Top-
water plugs can provide the fish
of a lifetime in the weeks to
come. Typically the bigger trout
tend to hang much shallower
than the schoolie size fish. So if
you're looking for numbers, not
necessarily size, target deeper
more sporadic grass flats in
three to five feet of water. Cast
weighted soft plastics in the
darker colors along the edges of


sand holes or free-line a live
shrimp up current so it gets a
natural drift.
If it gets cold again like it did
last week, sheepshead might be
your only option. Sheepshead
seem to bite no matter how cold
the water gets. Fish with small
live shrimp right behind bridge
pilings and fenders. Try scraping
the pilings with a spade. This will
attract fish from all around and


sometimes is necessary to get the
bite going if it's really cold.
Until Next Week GET BENT!

Del V tto Designs decorates pole
DUNEDIN This year for Dunedin's annual
pole decorating contest, Del Vitto Designs of
Dunedin and the Artist on the Edge Art Group
from Edgewater Arms decided to combine efforts
and create a spectacular holiday display.
Rather than decorate the small lamp posts
that pepper the downtown, they selected the
large poles that support the "Welcome Home
banner at the intersection of Main Street and
Broadway. This allowed the 15-by-45 display to
complement the existing banner while adding a
focal point to travelers on both roadways.

puzzles
hour to naked, unadorned fund-raising.
Today's religious broadcasting swanns with
appeals for "seeds," i.e., cash contributions,
from viewers and listeners. These invitations
have all the spirituality of a Bernie Madoff
promising to give a 10 percent or more return
on your money. A stiff income tax on these
peckerwood preachers would help to ensure
that messages of love, mercy and forgiveness
would soon replace the cash register ka-
ching that resounds today.
A holiday mystery: each Nov. 1 we launch
the Christmas season. A big part of this is
the holiday music. Most of the songs have a
Christmas connection. But two favorites -
"Jingle Bells" and "Let It Snow, Let It Snow" -
don't even mention Christ or Christmas. Not
a hint. Logically, those two songs should be
played all winter long. But they aren't. On the
morning of Dec. 26 they're packaged up and
stored away along with all the other holiday
songs. Why is this?
A related puzzle: if we could put a man on
the moon, why can't we come up with a cou-
ple of new Christmas carols each year? But
we don't. We just rework the old ones, such
as Lady Gaga singing "O Holy Night."
"Final puzzle: When will the general public
(i.e., you and I) tumn into the tightwads and
frugalists that today's economic crunch de-
mands? All around us are cut-rate stores,
coupon offers, cashback deals and stupen-
dous sales. Although we may take advantage
of some of them, indicators are that millions
still tend to spend our money unwisely.
Maybe Americans aren't as cash-strapped as
we think. When is the last time you attended
a 1930s-style rent party1"

on.
The first thing that comes to my mind:
those cheering men and women on the bal-
cony overlooking the New York Stock Ex-
change. At the opening and closing of the
day's trading, a dozen or more people gather
to hammer on a bell and then applaud like
crazy, as if something wonderful had taken
place, or was about to.
Why do they do this? As the market opens,
no one knows what the day's trading may
bring. So why cheer? At the closing of the
day's trading, the balcony assemblage should
reflect what happened that day. A gain of a
hundred points in the Dow-Jones averages
would merit wild rejoicing. But a miserable
perfonnance by the stock market should elic-
it outright sobbing and beating of breasts.
But that never happens. The cheers are con-
stant. It's unfiltered optimism, like a Cham-
ber of Commerce or Rotary convention. (Not
that there's anything wrong with that).
A similar mystery is this: Where do TV
game shows find all the mentally defective
contestants and audience members that fill
the studios? The chief requirement of a con-
testant is his/her ability to jump up and
down while screaming with joy. Even if he
just made a stupid mistake and blew away
$5,000. Audience members must possess
only one talent: to applaud everything that
happens. Someone gives the right answer:
APPLAUSE. Someone is from Iowa: AP-
PLAUSE. A man in the fifth row has a heart
attack and begins to tumn purple: WILD AP-
PLAUSE.
Another TV mystery: at the end of each
day, how do Jerry Springer and Maury


Driver's Seat
Bob Driver


Povich live with themselves? Their blatantly
obvious mission is to seek out ignorant,
wretched, misbegotten men and women and
then have them display their misery in front
of millions of viewers. Society convicted Karl
Vick for staging dogfights, but we reward
Springer &r Co. for doing the same thing with
human beings. How can this go on?
Here's a mystery I solved recently: I sud-
denly realized why rock and roll came to be. I
was watching the annual Christmas beg-
athon staged by PBS. As I sat through the
soft, sugar-coated offerings of the Brothers
Four, Patti Page and a dozen other throw-
backs to the Fifties, a question came to me:
"How could we have stood all that sentimen-
tal pabulum?" The answer: most of us were
asleep. As the Sixties began, alarm bells
started to Jangle Vietnam, civil rights
marches, illegal drugs. A new kind of music
was required to document these changes.
Rock and roll answered the call. It was in-
evitable.
Next mystery: why don't we tax the income
of money-grubbing TV evangelists? I under-
stand the basics of separating church and
state, and of giving tax-free status to most
houses of worship. But I object to giving a
tax-exempt status to any preacher who typi-
cally devotes five minutes of a sermon to
Christ and his principles, and the remaining

A proposal to open a shelter off 49th Street for the homeless is gar-
nering support.
The Sheriffs Office and St. Petersburg officials said the facility,
which they plan to open in January, would initially accommodate 250
people.
With thousands of homeless people walking the streets in Pinellas
County on any given day, government officials recognize that agencies
are stretched thin in trying to provide them food, clothing and shelter.
High unemployment has exacerbated the problem.
Furthennore, numerous chronic violators of ordinances, such as in-
toxicated individuals, are not accepted by some homeless shelters and
put a burden on the judicial system, law enforcement and jails.
Though many details have to be worked out, a comprehensive ap-
proach to addressing the needs of the homeless as has been proposed
should continue to be pursued, especially since many local elected offi-
cials appear willing to contribute funds to pay for it, along with grants
that have been secured.
Besides the potential for cutting costs associated with incarceration,
the facility could be a focal point for services for the homeless. Charita-
ble organizations could bring blankets, food and other provisions to
t fclity.
Of course, a key to the success of the shelter, called Safe Harbor'
will be for leaders to garner widespread continued financial support for
the project. At a time when local governments face challenges in bal-
ancn their 1xidoe~t,ns meeelectedhofficioal are likely to be reluctant to
maelng-tr cmimn t h re.
However, the initial reaction to the proposal is encouraging, and
local officials should strive to build upon it


Putting money in a Salvation Anny bucket, serving food at a home-
less shelter, delivering a meal, visiting a homebound person, writing a
letter to a soldier overseas there are countless ways to spread good
cheer at this special time of year.
Here's to the countless residents who make personal sacrifices to
make others' holiday more fulfilling and brighter.
To our loyal readers and advertisers, we thank you for your contin-
ued support this year, and we look forward to continue to serve you.
Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and good will to all.

No excuse for bad behavior
Editor:
With the Christmas holidays getting near, there are a lot of good
movies to see in the theaters. Unfortunately, theater goers cannot
enjoy the movies due to senior citizens who insist on talking through-
out the entire movie, no mater how many times you ask them to
please not talk during the movie. Apparently, they assume the sign on
the movie screen about not talking during a movie does not apply to
them.
Not only is it inconsiderate and rude on their part, but it definitely is
not a good role model for their children and grandchildren. Lacking
self-control in a movie by talking leads to lack of self-control in other
areas of a person's life, the reason we have an overpopulated world.
Women having excessive children once again shows lack of concern for
other people and the world around them.
Perhaps having a class in proper etiquette and good manners will
teach children not to follow in the footsteps of their parents and grand-
parents, but to think for themselves, and shape their own destiny. Se-
nior citizens in the meanwhile need to be made aware that old age is
not an excuse for bad behavior, and that if they want respect they
need to eamn it and not demand it due to their age.

Increasing the speed limit on the bridge isn't
the answer
Editor:
I am not surprised that Belleair Beach is asking to increase the
speed limit on the new Belleair Causeway Bridge to 35 mph. But, why
is that necessary The present speed limit is 30 miles per hour, which
:, ::"- th ped :ii o he fosea beoete brdg hwa cul
dos) still are.
Belleair Bluffs officials need to ask Pinellas County, what type of
traffic studies were done and the when, where and how? They (Pinellas
County) already had a count of the number of vehicles that would use
the bridge and that number apparently justified building it higher so
boats could easily pass under and the beaches had an evacuation
route in case of a hurricane.
What else is needed?
It seems that in a letter to the Belleatr Bluffs Commissioners, a divi-
sion manager of Pinellas County Public Works Transportation, recom-
mended increasing the speed limit as well, by citing traffic studies
conducted on the bridge and Florida Department of Transportation
Guidelines. Stating that apparently some drivers find it difficult to
maintain a 30 mph speed limit on the down slopes of the bridge and
further, "wJe verified during our field review that a motorist essentially
needs to ride their brakes during the descent to prevent exceeding 30
mph." He's absolutely correct up to a point.
First and foremost, any vehicle with an automatic transmission will
continue to pick up speed going downhill which is a function of its
"mass or weight." Let's use a little bit of common sense. It's the "slope"
that is causing the acceleration to occur regardless of the speed limit.
Therefore, the slope (angle) being a "constant" whatever the speed of a
vehicle may be.
At the top of a slope it will always pick up speed by the time it gets
to the bottom. According to the laws of gravity, any freewheeled object
(like a vehicle) will increase in speed as it goes downhill. That's basic
high school physics.
Now, consider the situation if the speed limit was increased to 35
mph.
This will essentially create a greater problem for heavier than nonnal
vehicles (mass) when coming down the bridge, like moving vans, con-
struction trucks, concrete trucks, heavily loaded pickup trucks, yes
even SUV's and the like. These "heavies" will need to continue riding
their brakes to maintain the posted speed limit and they need to do
so in a residential area.
Here's the only solution. It's not increasing the speed limit. This will
only make things worse at the bottom of any slope. What needs to be
done is what all drivers do in mountainous areas they "downshift"
which is a feature available on all automatic transmission vehicles and
most likely never used in Florida. When a driver downshifts, the vehi-
cle will slow down and it's not necessary to ride the brakes to avoid
over speeding.
Better yet, buy a hybrid and set the cruise control to the speed limit
when on a long slope, like the bridge in question. Then, when the
cruise control senses a speed above what it has been set for guess
what? You will be recharging the battery because many hybrids have
"regenerative braking" systems and drivers don't need to ride the brake
pedal to maintain a set speed going downhill. So drivers who want to
hold their speed either need to use their brakes or "downshift" to a


lower gear. Increasing the speed limit is not the answer. Check it out!
While we are on the subject of speed and control, something needs
to be done about the present location of the "speed warning" device,
which was installed on the westbound side of the roadway. It's not
doing the job because it's at the top of the slope. Vehicles approaching
the device may slow down at first but certainly pick up speed (going
downhill) to the point they are well over the 30 mph posted speed limit
by the time they get to the condo driveways. The slope (angle) of this
roadway is even steeper than the bridge itself; therefore, the speed of a
vehicle increases proportionally.
The solution for this problem is to simply move this warning device
further down the roadway so it's at the bottom of the hill. The device
on the eastbound side of the bridge is very effective because it's placed
at the bottom of the slope where it should be.

PaltrOW gOeS COuntry and the Coens show 'True Grit'


Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE

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

'Country Strong'
Genre: Drama and musical
Cast: Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Garrett Hedlund, Leighton
Meester and Marshall Chapman
Director: Shana Feste
Rated: PG-13
Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter (Garrett Hedlund) gets
involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star (Gwyneth
Paltrow), the pair embarks on a career resurrection tour helped by her
husband/manager (Tim McGraw) and featuring a beauty-queen-
turned-singer (Leighton Meester).
Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threat-
en to derail them all.

'Gulliver's Travels'
Genre: Action, adventure and comedy
Cast: Jack Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet and
Chris O'Dowd
Director: Rob Letterman
Rated: PG
In a modern, 3-D family take on the classic tale, Jack Black is
Lemuel Gulliver, a lowly mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper.
After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the
Bermuda Triangle, he goes there only to be transported to an undis-
covered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is, at last,
a bigger-than-life figure in size and ego especially after he starts
telling tall tales, taking credit for his world's greatest inventions, and
placing himself at the center of its most historic events.

might not be a conundrum after


PiSCES
February 19 March 20
A new source of revenue does
wonders for your wallet. Snoop-

stumble onto something you
would rather not.

Aries
March 21 April 19
Traveling goes more smoothly
than anticipated. Aries. You

that special person to thank.
Give them a gift that shows them
how much you care. Taurus.

Gemini
May 21 June 21

"Tron: Legacy" is a feast for
the eyes.
Sadly, Walt Disney Studios
spent so much time developing
the groundbreaking effects for
this film that they didn't notice
the story was underwhelming.
"Tron: Legacy" is sequel to and expansion of
1982's 'Tron," a mediocre box office success in its
time which has achieved a kind of cult classic sta-
tus. The original film pioneered the use of comput-
er graphics, virtual sets and backlit effects with a
mix of 70mm live action, computer graphics and
hand-drawn animation. With a new generation of
video game consoles and video games including
first-person shooters, sims, TRPGs, MUDs and
MMOs updating "Tron" for modern day audi-
ences seems logical.
One wise move on Disney's part: They chose to
make 'Tron: Legacy" a standalone film, realizing
that a significant percentage of the audience may
be unfamiliar with the original release.
"Tron: Legacy" takes place more than two
decades after the original. The audience quickly
learns that Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), who made it
out of the Grid in the first film, went on to take
control of Encom, the company he founded with
his longtime friend and associate, Alan Bradley
(Bruce Boxleitner). Just as Kevin was on the verge
of a major breakthrough, he disappeared, leaving
his son behind.
Fast forward: a pager signal draws now-adult
Sam (Garrett Hedlund) to Flynn's Arcade where he
is transported to the Grid. There, he discovers his
father has been trapped for 20 years. At this point,
the film becomes a quest: Sam and Kevin try to es-
cape the Grid while CLU tries to stop them. CLU,
by the way, is a master program created in Kevin's
image to help him oversee the expansion of the dig-


ital domain. CLU turned on
Kevin and seized control of the
Reel Time Grid.
So that's the story. If the
Lee Clark Zumpe screenplay, by Adam Horowitz
and Edward Kitsis, seems a bit
bare bones ... it is. Few charac-
ters are well developed and few plot twists are
added. Everything is predictable. If this was a video
game, the player would fly through it on the first
attempt.
Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn, al-
though there seems to be a lot of Jeffrey "The
Dude" Lebowski (from 'The Big Lebowski) in the
character, too. It's a solid performance, given the
lean material from which he must work. Bridges
manages to inject some spirituality into the role
that probably didn't exist on paper and for that
he is to be commended.
Garrett Hedlund plays Kevin's son Sam, a rebel-
lious young man driven to live life on the edge due
to his abandonment or so that cliches goes. Hed-
lund doesn't really make the character particularly
likable or credible. His performance is uncharis-
matic and hopeleSS.
Olivia Wilde plays Quorra, Kevin's confidante.
Wilde does manage to convey the character's child-
like fascination with Sam and his world. She
makes a better action hero than Hedlund.
One of the film's best performances comes from
Michael Sheen who played Lucian in the "Under-
world" films. In 'Tron: Legacy," he is Castor, owner
of the End of the Line Club on the Grid. Sheen
brings a bit of the Master of Ceremonies from
"Cabaret" to the part. Castor is one of the few well-
developed characters in the film, though the role is
minor.
Bridges or his digitized reflection also plays
CLU. In this role, Bridges is less convincing.

Garrett Hedlund stars as Sam Flynn in "Tron: Legacy."
Playing Gem is Beau Garrett, the most impor-
tant of four Siren programs who prepare programs
heading into fight in the gladiatorial games. Unlike
Castor, no light is shed on Gem's backstory which
keeps what could have been an interesting charac-
ter from developing fully.
Boxleitner reprises his role as Alan Bradley,
though he gets so little time on screen that his in-
clusion almost seems like an afterthought.
Billed as a "high-tech adventure set in a digital
world that is unlike anything ever captured on the
big screen," Disney manages to pull off some in-


credible effects in 'Tron: Legacy," not the least of
which is digitally creating a younger version of
Bridges. But eyecandy alone is not enough to
make 'Tron: Legacy" a success.
Actually, in addition to looking great, "Tron:
Legacy" also sounds great.
The electronically produced music complements
the visual bouquet nicely. Daft Punk, the visionary
pioneers of the art form, gives the film a blend of
progressive house, funk, electro and techno.
The flawed story, though, makes all this just
tasty icing on a unappealing cake.

Annual Downtown

Dunedin Art Festival

slated for Jan. 8-9
By LEE CLARK ZUMPE
DUNEDIN The Downtown Dunedin Art Festival returns for its 14th
anniversary Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 8-9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Main
street in downtown Dunedin.
This annual tradition transforms Downtown Main street into a first
class outdoor art gallery displaying a wide variety of art including paint-
ings, sculpture, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics.
The event allows festival-goers to meet and interact with participating
artists while shopping for treasures. Sale prices generally range from
$25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. Admission is
free and open to the public.
"This is a great way to explore the work of many different artists and
even interact with them," said festival promoter Howard Alan in a press
release. "We encourage everyone to come out and support the arts and
these fabulous artists."
The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are
hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversi-
ty. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America. Howard
Alan Events stipulates that all artists are required to be on-site for the
entire duration of the show. The artists, who will line Downtown Main
street with their professional display booths, will be available to discuss

designs. A metalsmith, Olling uses all precious metals. She has expanded
her repertoire recently, becoming a lapidary and utilizing semi-precious
stones in her work.
st. Petersburg's Kimberly Marshall has won several awards for her cre-
ative talents in painting and mixed medium. Though her subject matter is
vast, some of Marshall's greatest loves in life are flowers and landscapes.
Her paintings inspire simple beauty and serenity, and are evoked by her
travel and photography.
Marshall, who frequently shows her work at area festivals, exhibits her
art prints and original fine art paintings at art shows nationwide.
David Berger and Julie Berger, a married couple residing in stuart, also
will participate in the Downtown Dunedin Art Festival.
Specializing in oil paintings, David began painting at the age of 32 after
a life-altering, near-death experience in 1988. He experimented with wa-
tercolor and acrylic for four years until he discovered a love for oil paint-
ing. He is a prominent feature at prestigious art shows across the
southeast and internationally. David also is an award-winning, published
artist, whose work can be seen internationally in corporate and private
collections.


Though married, the artists create their art separately. In fact, Julie
began her career as an artist while at a show in which her husband was
participating.
David was taking part in the Las Olas Art Festival on a particularly cold
and wet weekend.
"I was getting bored just sitting there waiting for the rain to stop," Julie
explains in a press release. "I was visiting my husband at the show for the
weekend, while he was showing his oil paintings to the dedicated art show
patrons who braved the cold to see his work. "
Julie decided to check out a ceramic and craft store across from
David's booth. There, she purchased some ceramic tiles, pieces of glass,
some wire and needle-nose pliers. Before she knew it, she was creating
jewelry that was eye-catching enough to attract the attention of other
artists at the show.
Today, Julie's work is known for an extensive variety of natural gem-
stones and fossils.
The show is presented by Howard Alan Events, a Florida-based compa-
ny. Howard Alan Events develops and presents art and craft shows
throughout the country. Visit wwvi.artfestival.com.

their art and inspiration.
The event appeals to festival-goers of all ages as a free and fun weekend
activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections.
This year's participating artists include several from the Tampa Bay
area, such as photographer Carol Glazer.
Glazer has spent three decades traveling the world to observe animals
in their natural environs and to capture on film the active behaviors as
well as emotions of her wild subjects.
"I especially enjoy researching and photographing the interaction be-
tiveen mother animals and their babies," Glazer says on her website.
She has collected images from every comer of North America, including
deer, elki, bison, lynx, coyotes, black bears, grizzly bears, bobcats, wolves,
foxes, cougars, moose and mountain goats. She has even captured
breathtaking images of alligators from the swamps of Florida.
Lori Kay Olling, a jewelry designer based in Tampa, also will participate
in the show.
Olling's work features a mix of clean, simple lines and contemporary

Rated: PG-13
The test of wills between Jack Bymnes (Robert De Niro) and Greg
Focker (Ben Stiller) escalates to new heights of comedy in the third in-
stallment of the blockbuster series "Little Fockers."
It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Teri Polo)
and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get "in" with his tightly
wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job
moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about
his favorite male nurse come roaring back.
When Greg and Pam's entire clan including Pam's lovelorn ex,
Kevin (Owen Wilson) descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg
must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of
the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert
missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next
patriarch ... or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

'True Grit'
Genre: Action, western and remake
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Hailee Steinfeld and
Barry Pepper
Director: Joel and Ethan Coen
Rated: PG-13
"True Grit" is a mythic Western adventure story of vengeance and
valor from Academy Award winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen,
whose stirring adaptation hones in on the plain-spoken humor, bold
storytelling and rough beauty of Charles Portis' classic American
novel.
The time is the 1870s, the setting frontier America just after the
Civil War, and the taleteller is Mattie Ross, who at 14 years old jour-
neys to Fort Smith, Ark., determined to extract justice for the death of
her father, shot in cold blood.
Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) arrives in Fort Smith as her family's
sole representative, in search of the coward Tom Chaney (Josh
Brolin), who is said to have killed her father for two gold pieces before
setting out into Indian Territory as a fugitive. Beholden to follow
Chaney and see him hanged, Mattie enlists the help of a man ru-
mored to be the most ruthless U.S. Marshal in town trigger-happy,
drunken Rooster Cogbumn (Jeff Bridges), who, after many objections,
agrees to hunt Chaney.
But Chaney is already the target of the talkative Texas Ranger
LaBoeuf (Matt Damon), who also aims to catch the killer and bring
him back to Texas for an ample reward which brings the trio to col-
lide on the trail. Each willful and stubborn, each driven by their own
rough moral codes, this unlikely posse rides towards an unpre-
dictable reckoning, as they find themselves enveloped in the stuff of
legend: mischief and brutality, courage and disillusion, doggedness
and unalloyed love.

TIhe following will open (11 limited release. It maly be severall treeks
before these jilms appear fin locall movie theaters.

'Somewhere'
Genre: Comedy and drama

Director: Sofia Coppola
Rated: R

The test of wills between jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro), left, and Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) escalates to new heights of comedy in the third
installment of the blockbuster series "Little Fockers."


"Somewhere" is a witty, moving and empathetic look into the orbit
of actor Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorf).
You have probably seen him in the tabloids; Johnny is living at the
legendary Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. He has a Ferrari to
drive around in, and a constant stream of girls and pills to stay in


with. Comfortably numbed, Johnny drifts along. Then, his 11-year-
old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) from his failed marriage arrives un-
expectedly at the Chateau. Their encounters encourage Johnny to
face up to where he is in life and confront the question that we all
must ask: Which path in life will you take?
