Ulmerton Road work set to beginState DOT project calls for 1.5-mile segment to be widened to six lanes By TOM GERMONDLARGO Here comes the construction cones; another Ulmerton Road widening project is expected to begin Aug. 2. The first segment of the project will be from 119th Street to the Lake Seminole bypass canal. The existing four-lane highway will be widened to six lanes. That 1.5-mile segment, at an estimated cost of about $16.9 million, is expected to be completed in November 2013, Florida Department of Transportation officials said. Construction will take place primarily during the day. Lane closures are permitted at night between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. To reduce the contract times and increase contractor productivity, the contractor will be allowed to close lanes at major intersections during the weekends. Intersection improvements include creating dual left turn lanes on Ulmerton Road onto Ridge Road/113th Avenue South. The project also will add a new left turn lane on southbound Ridge Road onto westbound Ulmerton Road. Additional turn lanes will be added on Seminole Boulevard in the northbound and southbound direction onto Ulmerton Road. Some median and signal improvements also are included in the work. Over the next several weeks, the agency is expected to advertise for bids for two additional segments of the project, from the bypass canal to Wild Acres Road and Wild Acres Road to El Centro/Ranchero Road. Largo Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce President Tom Morrissette said that at least for now, he has not heard any concerns from businesses about the project. We did host that transportation breakfast earlier in the year where all this information was presented, and I have been receiving FDOT updates as a result of that meeting as promised, Morrissette said. Im hoping theyve been communicating regularly with the businesses to be impacted which I believe will prevent any significant backlash. Regardless, the work will be done. The breakfast Morrissette referred to was held Feb. 3, at which time DOT Project Manager Timothy Drawhorn said that the last segments to go to construction will be on the east end of the highway, east of 49th Street to 38th Street, which is unfunded, and 38th Street to I-275, which was expected to begin in 2013. The estimated cost of all the unfinished work is about $91 million, including the three projects between 119th Street and El Centro Blvd./Ranchero Blvd.). Finished and unfinished work along Ulmerton Road entails about nine miles of highway See ROAD WORK, page 4A City officials prepare for another lean fiscal yearLargo man arrested in crime spree Suspect charged with carjacking, burglary ..

Page 6A. By TOM GERMONDLARGO City officials are recommending a tax rate increase of about .24 mills in the proposed $65.4 million operating budget for the next fiscal year as property tax revenues are expected to remain virtually flat. The proposed tax rate is 4.55 mills, equivalent to $4.55 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. The operating or general fund budget reflects a 3 percent increase from the fiscal year budget, largely due to the replacement of the City Hall roof for $1.5 million. City officials said their goal is to cut $2 million in operating fund expenditures. For the past five years, the city budget has been significantly impacted initially by property tax reform that mandated reduced property tax revenue, followed by the economic recession and subsequent slow recovery that resulted in a further reduction in revenues, said City Manager Mac Craig in his budget message. Both intergovernmental revenue and user charges have been impacted by the economy because people are buying fewer goods and services. Overall, all revenue sources are projected to be relatively flat for FY 2012, with the economy slowly improving in FY 2013 and going forward, he said. Because of the economic downturn, city officials said there are significant constraints on the ability of local governments to fund operations. For FY 2012, the county Property Appraisers Office estimates a 4.4 percent decrease in the citys tax base. No raises are proposed in the budget. The total personnel positions in the budget are 873.54, down 25.27 from the current fiscal year. No utility increases are proposed in the next fiscal year, though increases are proposed in future years. Budget reductions have included freezing open positions to generate short-term savings, eliminating positions, eliminating raises, tightening the budget, creating service efficiencies, and improving cost allocations among funds, Craig said. Among other budget highlights: There is a $200,000 transfer estimated in FY 2011 and a $150,000 transfer proposed for the FY 2012 budget for the Largo Golf Course. Future general fund transfers are planned at decreasing levels throughout the 5-year period. As the golf course's financial situation improves, the General Fund support will be decreased, city officials said. Some city commissioners have been critical of substantial general fund transfers to the golf course, seeking ways to make it financially stable. Included in the capital improvements program is the replacement of the Highland Recreation Complex at a cost of about $15.3 million and construction of a new fire station at a cost of $3.4 million. City officials expect to use funds from Penny for Pinellas to fund the two projects. Long-term financial fiscal challenges, Craig said, are that the local and state economy is projected to remain weak due to a weak housing market, continuing credit crisis and high unemployment. Projections include modest property tax revenue increases equal to income growth over the next five years. Raising the tax rate is always difficult, especially in a weak economy, Craig wrote. The proposed tax rate of 4.55 mills is the rolled-back rate, which is the rate required to generate the same property tax revenue as in the prior year, not including new construction and annexation. The total budget is $149 million. City commissioners usually make more budget recommendations during work sessions in the summer before voting on the final budget and millage rate during two public hearings in September.

Since 2006, bee colonies have abruptly disappeared, up to 60 percent worldwide by some estimates. Studies suggest several factors such as virus, mites, pesticides, and global warming, which may be causes leading to the collapse of colonies. Besides making honey, honeybees pollinate fruits, vegetables, and nuts.Stand clear By SUZETTE PORTERAbout seven weeks have passed since Pinellas Countys fertilizer ban went into effect. Shelves that once displayed a multitude of plant foods now seem empty. Kelli Levy, watershed management director, said July 8, only a few complaints have come in since the countys fertilizer ban began June 1. The ban on the sale and use of fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorous from June to September is part of an ordinance passed Jan. 19, 2010, by Pinellas County Commissioners. Commissioners delayed implementing the ban for a year to allow time to educate the public and give businesses time to plan their inventories for four months when they would not be able to sell certain fertilizer products. Levy said the ordinance and ban are important to the work her department does to protect the environment and improve water quality. Pinellas County has 437,000 parcels of land, and 90 percent of them are residential meaning there are a lot of lawns and landscapes to maintain. We have a green addiction we need to get under control, Levy said. We need to get green in a smarter way. Fertilizers applied during the rainy season most often end up in the storm drains and eventually Tampa Bay where it can have a devastating effect on water quality. Restricting the application from June to September is one way the public can help officials working to improve water quality in local waterways.

Save $5000Reg. $14999Exp. 7-28-11 Exp. 7-28-11Reg.$17999 By TOM GERMONDLARGO Rain gauge data indicates that many sections of the city have received in excess of 7 inches during a 20-hour period beginning July 7 at 2 p.m. This storm period is the result of a disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico which is pushing rain storms in a linear pattern directly over the city in what is referred to as train event, where one storm follows another as if on a railroad track, city officials said. On Thursday night, the area around East Bay Drive and Fulton Drive received 2.66 inches of rain, followed by 5.1 inches between midnight and noon on Friday. Ulmerton Road at 66th Street received 3.1 inches Thursday night, followed by 3.58 inches between midnight and noon Friday. Receiving the heaviest rains were 150th Avenue and 66th Street, which received 4.55 inches Thursday night, and an additional 4.1 inches Friday morning, for a total of 8.65 inches. Compounding this amount of rain is the fact that much of the heavier rainfall occurred during the period of rising tides. This is critical to the areas on the east side of the city, which drain into Tampa Bay. Rising tides mean water flowing through the drainage system flows much slower than on lower tides, leading to more water backing up. The citys Public Works Department said that while street and parking lot flooding did occur during these rains, there have been no documented cases of blockages or pipe collapses being at fault. The rainfall has been occurring at such levels that it cannot run off. Waters will only recede once the rains have slowed down. The department says it has surveyed the citys maintained drainage systems repeatedly since this rain period began last week, and plans to continue to do so as long as this weather pattern persists. To put this rainfall into perspective, Largo normally expects to receive 49 inches of rain per year. In just the past week, sections of the city have received over 20 inches of rain, or almost half our annual expected total, a city news release said. Residents can help by ensuring that drainage inlets, ditches, or swales in their yards or the street in front of their yards are kept clear of debris. It has been a few years since this type of continual, daily heavy rain has been experienced in the Largo area. Unfortunately, once the ground becomes saturated with moisture and cannot absorb any more, new rain water has no option except to run off into drainage systems at a faster rate. With weather forecasts calling for more rain through the end of the week, the city sees the continued possibility of localized flooding as heavier rainfall periods occur, city officials said.City warns about flooding possibilityCommission OKs bargaining agreement with firefighters unionLARGO City commissioners have approved a collective bargaining agreement for city firefighters. The agreement, which was approved July 5, calls for no pay increases for firefighters in the current fiscal year and leaves the decision of a pay increase for the next fiscal year up to the City Commission. No funds have been included in the proposed fiscal year 2012 budget for raises. The city negotiated with the International Association of Firefighters on the agreement, which has been ratified by firefighters/EMTs, firefighters/paramedics and fire lieutenants. The Largo Professional Firefighters wanted to send a clear message that they understand the tough economic times and poor economy when they voted to accept the proposed contract. Their number one goal is to serve and protect the citizens of Largo, said an IAFF press release. With the recent reduction in staffing levels that resulted in the removal from service a rescue unit and the threats of reducing the staffing of a heavy rescue squad unit to only one firefighter, the union voted to preserve the staffing that was in place as of October 1, 2011, until October 2012, the release said. The firefighters also accepted a 37 percent reduction in personal insurance credits for over one third of the members, as well as restrictive language on the type of health insurance that must be obtained. IAFF members will receive 12 hours of personal option time off that has to be used in the next physical year or be forfeited. We are relying on the words of Mayor Pat Gerard when she said that we have to trust the City Commission to take care of them during these tough times, said Local 2427 IAFF President Dale Rosko. Our firefighters believe in the City of Largo, the citizens and its elected officials that we risk our lives to serve. We truly believe they will take care of us when times are better. The agreement will be in effect until Sept. 30, 2012.Economic stimulus program approvedLARGO An economic stimulus program designed to allow businesses to have temporary signage has been extended for another year. City commissioners July 5 gave final approval for the extension of the program, which allows businesses to obtain a one-year permit for either a 32-square-foot banner securely affixed to a building or a 32square-foot feather sign located on private property. Sixty-six temporary stimulus sign permits have been issued since the program was started on July 7.Board OKs sign relief for U.S. 19 corridorLARGO The city Planning Board July 21 approved a code amendment to allow for greater sign height for parcels adjacent to the U.S. 19 corridor. The issue will go before the City Commission in August. The reconstruction of U.S. 19 as an elevated and limited access roadway significantly impacts visibility of adjacent commercial and industrial properties and their signage, city officials said. Other jurisdictions have made provisions to permit additional sign height to allow visibility from the elevated portion of the highway to address uninterrupted travel speeds long the corridor.

4A Leader, July 14, 2011 FERTILIZER BAN, from page 1ALevy assures that plants wont be harmed from the lack of nitrogen and phosphorous during the summer months. Residents who followed the law and used a timerelease fertilizer in May shouldnt have to worry about feeding their plants for at least four-months. Levy advises citizens to read the label before applying fertilizers or pesticides. The label is the law, she said. People should follow the instructions. In addition, she said, it is important never to use more than what the label calls for. Plants are not like us at Thanksgiving, she said. They take up just what they need and no more. The rest ends up in the environment. Less is better with plants. Education is a big part of how Pinellas County plans to stay green and beautiful, and protect the environment. Levy said people in the business of taking care of lawns, landscapes and gardens are required to attend classes to learn best practices techniques. The classes end in certification. County certified landscapers will display a decal with the Pinellas County logo, meaning theyve been training in the best ways to mow lawns and trim trees and bushes. Theyll know not to blow grass clippings into roadways, Levy said. By ordinance, staff at commercial landscape companies must be trained in county-approved best management practices for mowing, trimming and landscape debris management by July 18. Landscapes that are maintained properly dont need as many resources (water, fertilizer, etc.). There is less stress on the plants. Theyre healthier, she said. She encourages residents to ask commercial landscapers and yard maintenance companies if they are certified and, if not, ask them to contact the county. Same rule goes with companies that apply fertilizer. Levy said commercial applicators must be state-certified in green industry best management practices and licensed through the state. Levy said residents should look for the countys decal to make sure people working in their yards or applying fertilizers are legal. The fertilizer ban applies to turf grass (lawns) and landscape plants essentially anything planted in the ground, Levy said. The ordinance does allow an exception for vegetable gardens. In addition, plants grown in containers are exempt. We wont be driving around looking for people watering their fern hanging on the porch, Levy said. But if we see someone doing something like spraying their lawn, we will stop and ask them what theyre doing, she said. Well always ask. The fertilizer ordinance allows fines of up to $2,500 to be levied for a variety of environmentally harmful practices, including the use of fertilizer containing nitrogen or phosphorous from June 1 to September. Phosphorous cannot be applied at any time without a soil test from a state-certified laboratory confirming it is needed. From October through May, residents can apply slow-release fertilizers containing no more than 50 percent nitrogen. Additional restrictions apply. Visit www.pinellascounty.org/environ ment/watershed/fertilizer.htm for more information. The ordinance also requires environmentally-friendly landscape maintenance practices, such as keeping grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste out of the streets, driveways, sidewalks, storm drains and surface waters. Private homeowners are advised to become familiar with the recommendations of the University of Florida IFAS Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program when applying fertilizer. For more information, visit fyn.ifas.ufl.edu. Meanwhile, Levy says everything residents need to keep their plants happy is available at local lawn and garden shops and larger retail stores. She recommends the use of compost and other organic materials. Gardeners may not find what theyve used in the past, but legal fertilizers are available for vegetable plants, citrus trees, other fruit-bearing plants, patio and container plants, as well as houseplants. Levy did admit that in the first weeks, more products might have been removed from retailers shelves than necessary. Were working on getting it all sorted out, she said. As part of her job, Levy reviewed hundreds of product labels and brochures before approving or disapproving their use in Pinellas County. She said she was surprised at the number of new organic products, including one that is a slow-release liquid. She encourages residents to take a close look at whats available on the shelves and research exactly what they need to keep their lawns and landscape plants healthy. She said sometimes what looks like a fertilizer deficiency By SUZETTE PORTER and AMANDA SEBASTIANODUNEDIN Residents of Pinellas County and the city of Dunedin can rest easy. The state has canceled plans to expand camping on Honeymoon Island. Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard announced in a press release July 8 that the Florida Park Service had been told to stop plans for expanded camping at Honeymoon Island State Park. After seeing the publics reaction, it is clear that this is not the right time to expand camping at Honeymoon Island State Park, Scott said in the press release sent out Friday night. These natural treasures belong to all the tax-paying citizens of this state and it would be unfair to proceed with a plan that so many Floridians are so adamantly opposed to. DEP had targeted Honeymoon Island as one of the first of 56 parks to add new overnight camping sites including space for recreational vehicles. Officials had said that Honeymoon Island could get up to 45 campsites on 17.5 acres east of the southern beach parking lot. The governor has instructed DEP and the Florida Park Service to meet with local communities, state park citizen support organizations and other park stakeholders before formally proposing the addition of amenities or services, including family camping, at any state parks. A huge crowd showed up at the Hale Senior Center in Dunedin July 5 for a hearing on proposed campsites on Honeymoon Island. The vast majority was against any change that might distract from the natural setting or harm the environment. With raised fists and chanting, an angry crowd was anxiously waiting for a decision, ears glued to the speakers that played what was going on behind the closed doors of the senior center. Poster boards with large, red letters spelled out messages from save our park to not for sale. Inside the building, fire marshals restricted the access to about 750 people who stood by as a panel of speakers and locals spoke about the pros and cons of adding the campsite, along with what it would mean for the city, the environment and Dunedin residents. Dunedin resident Louise Blaisse and her husband Ken traveled to Florida from California in an RV. Considering her past with RV campsites, she is well aware of what this addition will mean for the park, she said. To make this area suitable for an RV park, theyre going to have to make an area for the campers to dump their trash, among other things, Blaisse said. I want to know where they plan on getting rid of it. This park is beautiful and I dont want to see that happen; youd have to see it to understand, she said. A repeated comment that buzzed around outside the building was that there are already at least two RV parks nearby that are often vacant, with little to no travelers. Many of the crowd members came from areas other than Dunedin, but still found the news of what might happen to the landmark unsettling. Robyn Nuzzolo, who has organized various events involving local public awareness issues, came from Clearwater to hand out petitions. Signatures make changes, she said. We need real numbers to make a difference; numbers are what its all about, Nuzzolo said. There is so much that we can do, even one person can make a difference in this, she said. Near the street, protestors rallied drivers to pull into the parking lot and join the crowd. Grandparents with their grandkids, mothers and students waved their signs to a steady flow of honking cars, applauding the cause. Darby Jones, a St. Petersburg resident, has been going to Honeymoon Island most of her life, before officials even built the bathrooms on the island, she said. Each state has a legal duty to protect the assets within that state; theyre violating the public trust, Jones said. We really need to talk about that issue a lot more, she said.State says no to Honeymoon Island camp expansion The Florida Park Service also is rethinking how to proceed at Fanning Springs, DeLeon Springs, Edward Ball Wakulla Springs and any other parks under consideration for campsite expansions. The island, which received its name in 1939, has received various awards including the title of Americas first two-time winner of the National Gold Medal for Florida State Parks. An estimated 1 million visitors ventured to the park between 2005 and 2006. The park is home to several different types of animals, such as gopher tortoises, rattlesnakes, owls and more recently, a few bald eagles. It also is petfriendly, with a pet beach located near the entrance of the park.

Photo by JENNIFER L. GRAHAM/U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEYHarmful algal blooms kill fish and other aquatic creatures. The blooms occur as the result of an overabundance of nutrients, such as nitrogen fertilizers. Pinellas Countys fertilizer ban is one of many ways officials are trying to combat the local problem.might be something else, such as insect damage. Some residents cut grass too short or dont use a sharp blade, Levy said. Florida turf varieties should be left to grow to 3 1/2 to 4 inches before cutting. Nitrogen isnt the only nutrient that keeps grass green. The micronutrient, iron, can be applied to give yards a color boost. Some plants, such as palms, need very little nitrogen at all. Residents with questions about their plants needs should call Pinellas County Extension at 582-2100 or visit pinellas.ifas.ufl.edu. Levys department uses a snitch line that allows the public to report violators of the countys laws that affect the environment and water quality. Residents who see people using fertilizers illegally or sweeping debris into storm drains or other violations are asked to call 464-4425 or email watershed@ pinellascounty.org. Violations also can be reported via the countys website, www.pinellascounty .org/forms/water_quality.htm. Callers and those using the website form can remain anonymous, Levy said.Civic improvements highlight MB budgetMADEIRA BEACH The City Commission got a first look at the citys budget for the upcoming year at their June 28 regular meeting. What they saw was a half-dozen major projects, some of which have been in the planning stages for years, that are due to start during the next fiscal year. City revenues are expected to decline again next year, and expense cuts reflect the belt tightening needed in the budget. A 4.6 percent loss due to decreases in property values is less than in prior years, interim city manager Bill Mallory said. Nonetheless, general fund departmental spending has been cut by 12.1 percent, and some staff positions have been cut or downgraded. No increase in the citys millage (tax) rate of 1.7954 is being proposed, Mallory noted. Commission members, some of whom had criticized the last budget for not having enough detail, appeared pleased with the budget notebook that appeared to be at least 1,000 pages. Mallory took nearly two hours at the commission meeting to summarize the document. He said he was saving a detailed discussion for the commissions workshop session. The large civic improvement projects due for the coming year were a major expense item. A half-million dollar street resurfacing project is scheduled to begin later this year. That job will eventually include all of the citys roadways. Mayor Travis Palladeno said in a later comment he would like to do at least half of the city this budget year. Another $125,000 will be spent on new curbs and gutters. A striping machine will be purchased so city workers can stripe roads and parking lots. Archibald Park will get $200,000 in improvements, including a new deck and landscaping. Undergrounding of utilities in the park is not part of the current budget. A $10,000 FDOT beautification grant will be used for landscaping of the citys gateway entrance at 150th Avenue. Beach upgrades include $100,000 to replace dune walkovers, another $100,000 to repair beach groins, and $300,000 for seawall repairs. The money will come from the special projects fund. The marina will get new floating fuel docks, paid for with $70,000 from the Marina Enterprise Fund. Boardwalk repairs and maintenance at Johns Pass Village are in the budget, along with $10,000 to light the date palms at Christmas. The budget includes $100,000 to be spent on the repair and maintenance of City Hall. A number of the projects scheduled to be done have been planned for years, with money set aside in the budget, Mallory said. Its time to step up to the plate and play catch-up, Mallory told the commission. We cant keep putting these projects into the future, he said. All of the planned civic improvement projects are coming at a time when the city manager and public works director jobs are being combined. Asking the new city manager to step in and do public works with all the projects going on is not feasible, Mallory said. Mallory is recommending a new special projects coordinator position be created during a two year transition period. He indicated the job would no longer be a management position and offer a significantly reduced salary. Indications are Michael Maxemow, the citys longtime public works director, would fill the job. Other personnel changes involve downgrading of the community development job from a director position to a manager, cutting one fulltime parks maintenance worker, addition of a fire inspector/code compliance officer, and the addition of two temporary firefighters (to be made permanent when a federal grant for their hiring arrives). The initial budget presentation by Mallory was well received by the commission members. Im very pleased, said Commissioner Robin Vander Velde, who had been sharply critical of the previous budget. Palladeno, who had campaigned for budget changes, commended Mallory for this years budget preparation. Wayne AyersCity unveils $15.1 million budgetSEMINOLE City residents received good news June 28 when City Manager Frank Edmunds announced no tax increases and no service cuts in the citys proposed budget for fiscal 2012. The $15.1 million budget is $756,952 less than the current budget and $2.6 million less than the budget of four years ago. This budget submission is consistent with the fiscal responsibility and direction of the City Council, Edmunds wrote in a memo to the City Council. With a continuation of declining assessed property values, no increase to the millage rate will result in our taxpayers paying less for city services. This budget does not propose an increase in service fees and does not require the use of reserve funds. The proposed FY2012 budget is balanced to forecast revenues. The largest change will be seen in the Recreation Department, where the budget is $439,029 less, or 27.6 percent, than the current budget. No personnel cuts are targeted. The majority of the change is due to an anticipated $20,000 savings in electricity cost associated with a new air conditioning system and the cost of the system, which is in the current budget. The citys proposed library budget is down $75,889, or 8 percent, with no personnel cuts. Most of the savings comes following a $45,000 capital outlay in the current budget, which will not be duplicated in 2012. Other savings will be seen due to changes in the state retirement system, decreasing employer contributions. In the library division, the savings is estimated at $35,111, or 50.6 percent. The citys first workshop on the proposed budget is Wednesday, July 13, 6 p.m., at City Hall. In other action, Councilors: Passed on a first reading an ordinance to voluntarily annex property at 10073 130th Lane. Authorized city officials to execute an engagement contract for $2,400 with Fantasia Productions for sound and lighting services for the 2011 Music in the Park series. Approved contracts totaling $3,600 for six musical groups that will perform during this years Music in the Park series. Named Thomas Barnhorn the citys voting delegate for the Florida League of Cities annual business meeting. Authorized Edmunds to retain Solar Impact Inc. for engineering services to conduct a solar feasibility study on the Seminole Recreation Center. Bob McClure ROAD WORK, from page 1Afrom 119th Street to I-275. Project specifications require that the contractor maintain one access point to each business or property. Turn lanes in front of the Largo Mall in the east lanes will be provided. Signage also will be provided. City Economic Development Director Teresa Brydon said city officials are going to try to post information about the project on a Web site or by other means. She said city officials think the Ulmerton widening is a great project, but they recognize the impact it will have on businesses. We are going to be here to do what we can, but its tough. We are trying to get creative on ways to help them, but there is not much at this stage of the game that we have been able to come up with, Brydon said. That doesnt mean we wont try to turn over every stone to try to help them. The city can at least provide information on critical dates of project work, she said. Among business owners who have received some type of notification about the project is Santo Sardo, owner of Sardos Pizza located just west of Seminole on Ulmerton Road. Sardo is concerned about the impacts of the work on his restaurant, such as having a smaller entrance way. He said he hasnt heard enough details about the project, such as how long its going to take. Im nervous about it, he said. Around Pinellas Around Pinellas

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Local law enforcement spent a harried couple of hours July 6 chasing a car thief and burglar through sections of Clearwater before making an arrest in Belleair Bluffs. The crime spree started in unincorporated Clearwater on July 6 about 6:30 p.m. The incident ended around 8:30 p.m. with the arrest of Nicholas R. Fox, 24, of 10572 Oakhurst Road, Largo. More than 30 units and five canine units from police departments in Clearwater and Largo, as well as deputies and a helicopter from the Pinellas County Sheriffs office worked the incident, which covered more than 20 square miles, said Joelle Castelli, public safety spokesperson for the city of Clearwater. It all started when Fox took some keys off the bar at Oz, an adult establishment at 13577 U.S. 19 N. in unincorporated Clearwater, and stole a patrons car, according to the Pinellas County Sheriffs office. Deputies were investigating the car theft when Clearwater police received a call about shots fired and aggravated assault on North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Sheriffs deputies said Fox apparently found a loaded handgun in the stolen car and began firing. Clearwater police located the stolen vehicle and tried to stop it, according to a media alert. But officers decided to end the chase when the car left their city and entered an area of unincorporated Pinellas County. Another Clearwater officer found the car about 7:20 p.m. where it had crashed into a wall near the intersection of Monterey Drive and Belleair Road about the same time sheriffs deputies and a helicopter arrived on the scene to assist, said Sgt. Thomas Nestor, public information officer for the sheriffs office. Meanwhile, Fox found an unlocked back door at a residence on Monterey Drive close to where he crashed the vehicle stolen from the parking lot at Oz. The residents were home at the time and, according to the sheriffs report, were startled when their unexpected visitor entered the house. Deputies said Fox convinced Joseph Stillwell, the homeowner, that he was being chased and needed help. Stillwell agreed to help Fox, but as they were driving out of the subdivision, Clearwater police officers approached. Stillwell then stopped to talk to the officers. As soon as Stillwell left the vehicle, Fox got behind the wheel and drove away. He made it to Antique Alley in Belleair Bluffs where he left the vehicle and took off on foot, Nestor said. Witnesses in the area gave deputies the address of a man they said fit the suspects description. Deputies proceeded to the apartment located at the Belleair Bluffs address. As deputies arrived, Sean Brown, who lives at the apartment, exited the apartment and told authorities that Fox was inside. Deputies entered the apartment and made the arrest. Nestor said it was about 8:30 p.m. two hours from the time Fox stole his first vehicle. Fox was booked into the Pinellas County Jail just before 1 a.m. July 7. He was charged with one count of carjacking with no weapon and one count of burglary to an occupied residence. He also was charged with violation of probation by sudden snatching and resisting arrest without violence. His bonds totaled more than $120,000. No bond was set on the VOP charge. Nestor said the resisting charge was the result of his fleeing from officers. He also had attempted to change his appearance by shaving his head and changing his clothes while inside the Belleair Bluffs apartment. Nestor said deputies along with Clearwater PD were still working to piece together everything that happened and it was likely more charges would be filed. Luckily, everything turned out OK with the Stillwell family and Fox did not do anything to harm the couple, Nestor said. It could have been a lot different, he said. Stillwell told a local reporter that he didnt normally keep his doors locked while hes at home. However, Nestor said, for safetys sake, it is a good idea to keep doors and windows locked even when youre home. Another safety tip is to make sure to lock doors and close garage doors when working in the yard. He said leaving the front door and garage door open while working in the backyard, or out of sight of the house, was an open invitation to a thief. He also reminded residents that most of the time when they see a sheriffs helicopter in the air, deputies are looking for someone. Probably best thing to do would be to go inside and lock the door, he said.Largo man arrested in crime spreeLegislative delegation meeting canceledState Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, chair of the Pinellas County Legislative Delegation has canceled the public hearing meeting of the delegation members for July 14. In announcing the cancellation of the meeting that was set to be held at the St. Petersburg College campus in Clearwater, Frishe said that the sole purpose of the public hearing was to address the issue of a possible development on Honeymoon Island. However, since the governor and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection have announced that those plans are no longer under consideration, there is no need for the meeting, Frishe said, in a press release. Frishe said, We thank the governor and the Department of Environmental Protection for their positive response to the citizens of Pinellas County. We also thank our citizens for their willingness to get involved. As I often say, democracy is a participatory form of government. If you dont participate, it wont work.

The sheriff will update neighboring residents and business operators on the activities at the shelter and the community partnerships generated by the project. Chief Deputy Bob Gualtieri will give a presentation on the impact the shelter has had on the jail population and in the homeless community. The Forum also will give citizens an opportunity to ask questions and to provide feedback to Coats and Gualtieri about the project. Briefs Nicholas R. Fox

Unfortunately, cancer can occur in nearly any type of animal, and the very possibility can be stressful for pet owners. Fortunately, some bumps are nothing to be concerned about, though telling the difference between the two can be challenging. Both tumors and cancers occur when tissue grows abnormally. Benign tumors stay in one area, while malignant cancers spread by growing into surrounding body parts or catching a ride in blood vessels or lymph tracts. Definitively telling the difference between a benign tumor and a malignant cancer involves taking samples of the area for examination. There is no general cancer test that can be done on an animals blood, though there are a few tests for very specific types of cancer. One type of common and benign tumor is the lipoma. Lipomas are benign tumors of fat, and are very common in older dogs, especially retrievers. They typically are round, smooth and directly beneath the skin, so the hair on top is undisturbed. Lipomas, while benign, can be a problem if they grow too big, or are in the wrong location. Some lipomas can grow to the size of cantaloupe, and even smaller ones can interfere with leg movement or bodily functions if they are in the wrong place. If a lipoma is small and not causing problems, it may be considered a cosmetic problem rather than a health problem. Lipomas tend to grow in spurts, and may shrink with weight loss. If an older dog has a lump, it is impossible to tell with 100 percent certainty whether it is a lipoma or a more serious growth without taking a small sample. Some serious cancers can mimic the feel of a lipoma and fool a person into ignoring them. Sometimes this sample can be taken with a needle in a procedure known as a fine needle aspirate, or FNA. Lipomas that become a problem, because of size or location, are usually easily surgically removed. Because they are solid tumors or fat, they cannot be drained with a needle. Cysts are small pockets of fluid or solid material beneath the skin, and are not actually tumors. They tend to occur in older small dogs, but can occur at any age or in any breed. These pockets of fluid can become painful, or even potentially rupture as pressure builds. Some cysts grow to a certain size and then remain stable. Occasionally a cyst can be a sign of a more significant health problem; some tumors or cancers can also become cystic. Determining with absolute certainty that a lump is a cyst involves taking a sample of the fluid or solid matter within the capsule, often with a needle or through biopsy. Because the lining of the cysts is still present, simply draining the fluid or matter does not remove them; they typically grow back unless completely surgically removed. Many lumps and bumps are not a big concern, though determining which are and which are not serious involves some work. Benign lumps can sometimes be ignored, as long as they are in the right location and not growing too fast. When in doubt, get your pets lump checked out!Dr. Michael Rumore is the owner of Lake Seminole Animal Hospital. Speaking of PetsMichael J. Rumore, DVM Pet photo winner

Florida is home to 80 species of mosquitos, according to an article written by Jorge R. Rey, a professor at the University of Florida. He describes them as one of the most versatile organisms on earth. They can reproduce in virtually any natural or man-made deposit of water , he writes in an article published by the Entomology and Nematology Department, Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida. Public health and safety officials continually preach about the importance of keeping water away from homes and businesses because without water, mosquitos cant breed. Rey explains that the mosquito life cycle begins with the egg stage, when the females lay their eggs in any water-holding area, such as tree holes, ponds, puddles, ditches, and artificial containers including old tires, planters, buckets and more. Hatchlings, called larvae, grow into pupae from which the adults emerge. Males usually emerge first and remain around the breeding site, waiting for the females, Rey wrote. it is only the female that will seek a blood meal, which most species need in order to develop their eggs, he says. Rey also said female mosquitos lay batches of eggs during their three-week to fivemonth life span. For some species, each batch requires a blood meal. This blood meal, most usually referred to as a bite, is more accurately described as a sting, according to Rey. During the blood-sucking process, the mosquito injects a small amount of saliva, which is the cause of swelling and itching. It is through the saliva of an infected mosquito that diseases such as West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis and canine heartworm are spread. Pinellas County uses a tactical approach to control mosquitos, according to a brochure produced by the Mosquito Control department. It all begins with monitoring via traps in locations countywide. Blood from sentinel chickens in eight locations is tested regularly for signs that mosquito-borne viruses are in the area. Mosquito Control uses a combination of methods to hamper the insects ability to breed. Staff treats targeted bodies of water and swampy areas to kill mosquito larvae. Crews clear vegetation that prevents water from flowing freely in lakes and marshes. Insecticide is sprayed by truck and helicopter. During the rainy season, messages go out urging county residents to keep empty anything that can hold water. Mosquitos can develop in any water that stands for more than four days. Mosquito Control offers several tips for combatting mosquitos around homes and businesses: Regularly check and empty water in containers such as flowerpots, saucers, wheelbarrows, trashcans, recycling bins, buckets, discarded tires and plastic wading pools. Drill holes in tire swings so water can drain. Store small boats upside down and make sure water doesnt collect in tarps covering boats or other stored items. Replace water in bird baths at least once a week and water in pet dishes daily. Clean out gutters so they wont hold water. Flush out bromeliads twice weekly or treat with larvicide. Treat ornamental ponds and rain barrels with larvicide. Stock ponds with Gambusia fish that eat mosquito larvae. Despite everyones best efforts, there will still be mosquitos. To avoid being a female mosquitos next meal, experts advise everyone to practice the Five Ds. 1 and 2 Dusk to Dawn. Mosquitos favorite feeding time is between dusk and dawn; the time outdoor activities should be avoided. 3 Dress If outdoors when mosquitos are active, wear light-colored clothing that covers most of the skin 4 DEET Experts say repellants with DEET are most effective. Other recommended types are those containing Picaridin and oil of lemon-eucalyptus. Officials advise to read labels before purchasing and using any repellant. Some are not recommended for children under age 3. Repellant should be sprayed on exposed skin and clothing, but not under clothing. 5 Drain Get rid of all standing water. Mosquitos cannot breed without water. Pinellas County is home to two types of mosquitos that experts refer to as ankle-biters because they most often take their blood meal below the knee. They are tenacious feeders, fly-Rainy weather good for proliferation of mosquitosing away at any movement, only to return repeatedly until they get a meal. Experts say that behavior often makes one mosquito appear like more. Professor Rey concludes his article by debunking several mosquito myths. He says while bug zappers are effective against mosquitos, they do not control them and can be harmful to populations of beneficial insects. He advises that electronic repellers are a waste of money. Mosquitos do not nest, so they cannot nest in vegetative areas. Vegetative areas without standing water are not home to breeding mosquitos. Birds, bats, owls and other birds eat mosquitos but not enough to serve as a control method. He says claims that spraying adult mosquitos is best are wrong. Eliminating the insect before the adult stage is better. Claims that the plant Citrosa repels mosquitos also arent true, Rey says. Citronella oil is used as a repellant, but the undisturbed plant does not release oil and thus cannot repel. Pinellas County offers a variety of information about mosquitos and methods for control on its website, www.pinellascounty.org. Look for the mosquito control link on the front page under special interests.Public health and safety officials continually preach about the importance of keeping water away from homes and businesses because without water, mosquitos cant breed.

Early starts along with picking days that offer good moving tides will definitely bring better fishing. Bait woes continue in the north Pinellas region, just as we were getting spoiled with a couple of weeks of being able to chum up perfect sized pilchards. Were now inundated with small pilchard fry. The majority of these baits are still too small to put on a hook, but there is a percentage of usable sized bait mixed in. The small fry bait is well on its way to being an every situation option. What was considered to be too small to use a couple of weeks ago, some of the tiny pilchards have grown up just enough to be cast out underneath a float or fished on the bottom with a small sinker. Make sure that you use a inch mesh cast net for these little guys or youll have quite a mess on your hands. These baits may seem too small to be appealing to larger game fish like trout, snook and reds but think again; remember, fishing is a game of matching the hatch, so its time to shrink your hooks and possibly your leaders and take advantage of what Mother Nature has given us to work with. Anchoring up over deep grass patches just inside the passes on a good moving tide has provided good action for trout, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and small sharks. Live chumming with the tiny pilchards will get the fish into a frenzy. Use a weighted float to assist in casting the small baits and a small long shank hook to help prevent cut-offs. Shark fishing also can be a good option this time of year, especially when youre taking kids fishing. Small blacktip sharks can be found roaming the bottom in many deep cuts throughout the ICW. Almost any cut bait will work when targeting these pup sharks, but oily baits like mullet or ladyfish seem to work best. Be sure to take a couple of chum blocks to help attract the sharks. Until Next Week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.On Saturday, July 16, Tampa Bay Watch, along with community volunteers, will participate in a crab trap removal effort at six Tampa Bay locations, including Belleair Bluffs, Upper Tampa Bay, Alafia River, Cockroach Bay, Boca Ciega Bay and Demens Landing. The event is timed to coincide with the regional closure of blue crab fishing. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has mandated a temporary closure for the harvest of blue crabs from traps in all waters of Broward through Pasco counties including the waters of Tampa Bay. FWC is requiring regional closed seasons for the blue crab fishery to help facilitate efforts to identify and retrieve lost and abandoned blue crab traps in state waters of Florida. The local closure runs through through July 19 and extends out to three miles offshore and applies to both commercial and recreational freestanding traps. Blue crab traps attached to private property are excluded from the closure. All commercial and recreational traps left in state waters during the 10-day closure will be considered derelict and can be removed. It is important to note that even though the fishery will be closed, not just anybody can remove a trap. Anyone interested in being involved must be a part of an organized effort that has been authorized by FWC. Three regional, 10-day blue crab trap closures take place in designated areas in Florida in odd-numbered years, and three other closures occur in even-numbered years. Derelict and abandoned crab traps in the waters are a problem for several reasons: They continue to ghost fish (fishing that continues despite the inactivity of the trap) killing not only the crabs but several other recreationally and commercially important species; they pose a navigational hazard to boaters; they can cause damage to valuable and sensitive habitats such as sea grass or natural hard-bottom environments. Manatees, dolphins and sea turtles can also become entangled in the trap line causing injury or death. This event is great because it gets community volunteers involved in helping to preserve and protect the bay by removing de-Derelict crab trap removal event planned bris and keeping marine life from needlessly getting caught and killed in abandoned traps, said Serra Herndon, habitat restoration director for Tampa Bay Watch, in a press release. It is estimated that there are thousands of derelict crab traps that have been accumulating for decades in Tampa Bay. Each year, Tampa Bay Watch performs surveys to identify derelict traps and conducts clean-ups to remove them. Having conducted 16 crab trap removals since May 2004, Tampa Bay Watch has successfully removed 775 traps from the waters of Tampa Bay.

Viewpoints 9A Leader, July 14, 2011Gov. Rick Scott made the right decision by canceling plans to expand camping on Honeymoon Island. Most of the credit, though, for the defeat of the plan should go to the public. Park lovers sent a message loud and clear that they were adamantly opposed to the proposal as well they should be. State officials plans to allow campsites on Honeymoon Island run roughshod over efforts to protect the parks diverse shorebird population and other natural resources. The Department of Environmental Protection had named Honeymoon Island as one of the first of 56 parks where state officials want to add overnight camping sites, including space for recreational vehicles. The state park could have established up to 45 campsites on 17.5 acres east of the southern beach parking lot, under the state agencys plans. Area residents, environmental activists and others turned out in droves at a meeting in Dunedin last week to express opposition to the proposal. They offered convincing arguments about why plans for the campsites should be rejected. The St. Petersburg Audubon Society points out that the island is critically important to nesting shorebirds, seabirds and wading birds, many of which are protected species. The island has a bald eagle nest, a great horned owl nest and numerous osprey nests. It is a wintering area for peregrine falcons. The campsites could have negative effects on birds nesting activities. As the Audubon Society also asks, how will stationary and vehicle campground lighting be controlled to ensure that sea turtle hatchlings and migratory birds are not disoriented at night? Threats of vandalism and more encroachment upon wildlife habitat should not be taken lightly, especially on an island that has about 1 million visitors a year. The park already offers many recreational activities, such as interpretative tours, picnicking, surfing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and bird watching. Agencies that have the responsibility of protecting natural resources should look skeptically on any plans that could oversaturate the area with activities. New campgrounds will require roads, restrooms, bathrooms and other amenities. The states ambitious plans to use parks for camping sites create the perception that additional opportunities for revenue for financially strapped agencies were driving the issue. If such is the case, state officials should look at other ways of raising park revenue, such as through fees. Hats off to the lovers of Honeymoon Island for making a strong case for the need for environmental ethics. Does your job require you to be an actor? If not, you may be one of the few who can get away without having to put on a performance to earn your pay. A couple of weeks ago I visited one of our better local restaurants. My waiter Ill call him Harry used to take part in stage productions. I asked him if hed done any acting lately, and he said, No. This job gives me all the acting opportunities I need. I didnt ask for details, but as I watched Harry in action I could tell what he meant. The role he was playing was that of the accomplished waiter. He was well-dressed, attentive, solicitous, disciplined in his movements. He joined with me in some small talk, but didnt try to be my buddy. He behaved likewise with his other customers. He exuded polite, professional detachment. It was easy for me to see that Harry was proud to be not just a waiter, but also a good one, the kind that returning diners might ask for as they entered the restaurant. Was Harry a phony, in the negative sense of that term? I dont think so. If he was, then most of us are probably phonies as we perform our daily duties. I prefer the term actors. Society demands that we pretend. If we didnt, civilization would crumble. Who are the best actors? Public school teachers must rank high on any list of performers. On an average day a teacher will stand in front of 30 ill-mannered, rebellious children who may hurl insults and spitballs at her. In her heart shed like to mace or taser the ringleaders. Instead, she acts restrained, disciplined and in charge. Meryl Streep couldnt do a better job of it. Most cops are marvelous actors. Each day they face the dregs of society drunks, crackheads, liars, enraged motorists while being required (at least initially) to play the role of a fair-minded arbiter not easily influenced by the words and actions of pond scum. Of course, beyond a certain point a cop is free to drop the pretense and take painful and necessary actions. Firefighting, I would guess, is one occupation where no one pretends. When youre in a burning tenement whose walls may collapse on you at any second, you have no time or reason to be an actor. Firefighters dont even have to pretend theyre not scared as they wade into danger. TV newsreaders are usually consummate actors. Day after day they stand there and glibly narrate complex stories of war, finance, science and politics. In truth, they do not comprehend one-fifth of the information they are purveying, but youd never know it. Their motto: Fake it until you make it. No profession requires its practitioners to be an actor more than does politics. Although a few public office-holders may act as they honestly feel, most cannot and will not. There careers demand that they play a role. They must behave, as they believe their constituents would wish them to. This requirement can change from hour to hour, or from audience to audience. If politicians were suddenly turned into animals, they would be chameleons. Trial lawyers the best ones are often excellent actors. At a seconds notice, they must fake outrage, approval, indignation, sympathy. Their job is not to be sincere, but to win the case for their clients. Air traffic controllers seldom show their emotions. They are paid to remain calm. They speak in a low, controlled manner, so as to persuade airline pilots (and others who may be listening in) that theres nothing to get excited about. They do this despite the fact that they have the task of keeping dozens of supersonic aircraft from colliding with one another as they (the controllers) figure out which ones should be permitted to land, take off, or stand by for the next 37 seconds on Runway 040. I must assume that the default on-duty emotion for typical air traffic controllers is subdued terror. Therefore, they are superb actors. They deserve Oscars or Golden Globes just for not screaming six or eight times each hour they work. So are bartenders and psychiatrists. They must deal with clients who are drunk or crazy or both. These customers are inclined to speak gibberish. The barkeeps and the shrinks must listen, and pretend to give a pigs whistle about what the customer is whining about. It takes outstanding actors to carry out such a role day after day.Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com.Acting requirements of various jobsSupport the Antiquities ActEditor: The immense turnout to protect Honeymoon Island from overdevelopment this week is a great demonstration of how connected our community is to public lands, and how important protecting them is. Unfortunately, some leaders in Washington, D.C., dont seem to share this popular public sentiment. Case in point: ongoing efforts to gut President Teddy Roosevelts Antiquities Act. This act gives the president authority to designate new national monuments on sites already owned and enjoyed by us, the American people. If you have visited the Grand Canyon, or the Statue of Liberty, youve enjoyed just a few national treasures that presidents of both parties have used this act to protect over the last 100 years. Florida has benefited from national monuments, including Fort Matanzas, and two National Parks that started as monuments Biscayne and Dry Tortugas. I hope Congressman Bill Young will oppose attacks on the Antiquities Act so that our nations leaders can continue to protect our most cherished public lands and waters for future generations, including Floridas remaining special places. Frank Jackalone, Senior organizing manager/Florida & Puerto Rico Sierra Club St. PetersburgHopes institute can show resultsEditor: I have a great deal of respect for St. Petersburg College, but this new Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions has me scratching my head. It would have four forums a year that would be financed through membership fees! I guess that leaves all the poor people out of the discussion. What was the result of the soft launch forums on the Gulf Coast oil spill? Are there now laws forcing the oil companies to replace all the defective blowout preventer valves? Have all the businesses been reimbursed for their losses in this man-made disaster? Will the institute be offering free architectural classes on building minimal survival housing for 13 million unemployed people and the future generations who will have only low skill, low wage jobs available? Most taxpayers look at think-tanks as people who study something to death and then publish results that anybody could say I told you so! I hope SPC can show some nuts-and-bolts, on-the-ground results from this new institute.

I arrived in about 15 minutes before the doors opened and found about 100 people in line to pay the $8 entrance fee. Once inside, the gun dealers had long tables displaying hundreds of guns of all types. I had sticker shock over the price of the guns. Name brand guns $500 and up, way up. Assault rifles $1,200 to more than $3,000. If one has a Florida concealed weapons permit, he can pay for the gun and take possession on the spot. Without the permit, a three-day waiting period. I was informed by a sales guy for a big gun dealer that so many guns were being sold, there would be more than an hour wait to fill out the paperwork to buy a gun. I witnessed dozens of guns being delivered. Almost every weekend there are gun shows like this somewhere in Florida. Four times a year at the Tampa fairgrounds. It would appear the efforts of the police to remove guns is a drop in the bucket compared to the volume of new ones being sold just at these shows. Ray McJohn Treasure IslandA plea for doggie etiquetteEditor: Id like to take Karen Guays letter to the editor of July 7ths Beacon just a bit further. I, too, am an animal lover, and I very much appreciate those who observe our leash laws and laws that require us to clean up after our dogs, in our neighborhood parks and in walking them around our neighborhoods, as well. Id also like to make a plea, though, for a little doggie etiquette, a little common courtesy, when it comes to our public beaches, too. While we do have designated dog-friendly beaches in Pinellas County, we also have beaches with signs posted that clearly indicate dogs are not allowed at those particular beaches; e.g., Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, etc. No matter how cute and friendly Fido may be, not everyone appreciates him running up to them with an enthusiastic greeting. I can only imagine how much joy some dogs experience running across the sand at the waters edge, so by all means, take them to the beach and enjoy it with them. Just, please, take them to a dog-friendly beach. Cynthia Varney Madeira Beach There ought to be a support group for dysfunctional picture hangers. I would be the first to join. Whenever the inspector general, my mother, visits me she has something to say about the pictures on my walls. That picture is too high, she said recently. Your pictures should always be at eye level. Well, grow a couple of inches, I said. I also seem to have a problem hanging pictures straight. Cant count how many times Ive had to re-hang pictures. And, yes, Ive filled most of the nail holes I left with the wrong kind of compound. Consequently, the blotches on the walls appear as if the walls have melanoma. Wish I could blame my lack of interior decorating skills on the fact that Im vision impaired (blind as a bat), but I think the problem is more serious than that: Im mechanically inept. While most of my pals in junior high school took a class called shop, I took art. That was a complete waste of time because although I learned the basics about sketching and the use of watercolors, I never received instruction on how to hang a painting. Never been good with a hammer, saw and nails, either although I do take pride in having put the screws to a few politicians. Electrical work? Scares me to death. Would be much more confident that I could perform simple electrical work if I could find the book, Changing Light Bulbs for Dummies. Fluorescent light bulbs? Wont touch them. Ill leave any work involving fluorescent light bulb fixtures to the professionals, such as the Navy Seals. Dont do assembly required, either. No sir. It took me hours to build a shower tower in my master bathroom. At least its standing; Im used to the 45-degree angle. Have trouble with assembly required, instructions, too. Heck, sometimes it takes five minutes just to find the set of instructions written in English. Suffice it to say that over the years, Ive relied extensively on professional help to prevent my homes and my sanity from disintegrating. Plumbing? If I cant fix the problem with Drano, I usually call somebody. The other day, I sought help at a building supply store for a problem I had with a clogged shower drain. Excuse me, sir, I asked, does this stuff work? I was referring to some liquid miracle cure in a bottle with a hazmat label on it. That will help, but youd be better off to drop the trap and snake it, an employee said. Oh, of course, I said. But that would require me to remove the shower tower. I refuse to take the time to try and rebuild it. So I guess Ill have to call my plumber friend. I always try to observe and learn from him. I once watched him replace the flush lever and other parts in my toilet. I think I could do that, I told the plumber. No, youd probably muck it up, he said. The truth hurts. Electronics? Again, nothings simple. A few years ago, I bought a stereo turntable in an attempt to play old LP albums. I plugged it in, and nothing. After about an hour of reading the troubleshooting section, I came to the conclusion that the machine didnt work. I took it back to the store where I bought it, and an employee said, You didnt hook up the belt. I didnt know it had a belt, I said. He looked at me curiously. Pants have belts. Cars have belts. But I never had to install or replace a belt on my old turntable, the 1962 RCA Victor I owned for two decades. They dont make things like they used to and nothings easy to fix. Over the years, Ive tried to replace insulation, install vinyl tile, fix a water heater and undertake other home improvement projects with limited success. Believe it or not, Im fairly competent at painting; I seldom paint my carpet. But Im also a great believer in handymen. Im overdue on calling a professional for some work I need done, such as hanging a large picture on a masonry wall at eye level. I really dont spend a lot of time checking the professional qualifications of handymen. But since Im going to need one to hang a picture in my house, hed better be at least 6 feet tall.Help wanted to replace a light bulb EDITORIALPark proposal was no picnicHoneymoon Island lovers send strong message to Gov.

Evening Pediatrics was founded in 2008, with the desire to provide afterhours medical care, without the expense of the emergency room. Evening Pediatrics aims at creating a calm and soothing environment while providing exceptional care to infants, children and adolescents when a primary care physicians office may be closed. Evening Pediatrics serves as the intermediary between a childs primary care physician and the emergency room. We found parents were traveling long distances to visit our St. Petersburg Office located off of 49th St. N., said Michael Cibran, owner. Our decision to expand to the Largo area was based on the need for a pediatric after-hours clinic in the area. We hope to continue growing and to eventually have several convenient locations for all families in Pinellas County.Keystone Healthcare to sponsor seminarCLEARWATER Keystone Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services Inc. will host a seminar on staying healthy after physical therapy on Saturday, July 16, 2 to 3 p.m., at the Hampton at Clearwater, 1099 N.

The project includes a 200-seat conference center, resident resource rooms on patient care floors, on call rooms, a resident dining room and renovation of the current medical staff dining area. This conference center will assist us in educating the more than 118 resident physicians who are a part of our 13 graduate medical educational programs here at Largo Medical Center, said Richard H. Satcher, chief executive officer of Largo Medical Center, in a press release. As we continue to grow, this conference center will give us the space and flexibility to provide some of the most diverse and quality educational lectures not only for our medical residents and fellows, but also for all of our health care employees and the community. The conference centers main meeting room will seat 200 people. This room will be able to be subdivided into four smaller meeting rooms. Also, three additional conference rooms will be located just steps away and will provide space for smaller group meetings. The multipurpose conference center will connect electronically with Nova Southeastern University, the University of South Florida and other higher-learning institutions to share educational presentations through a state-of-the-art audio-visual system. Construction is set to be completed in November 2011. The graduate medical education program of Largo Medical Center is the third largest osteopathic program in the south and has been designated as a statutory teaching hospital by the Agency for Health Care Administration. Pinecrest place holds educational event for adult childrenLARGO Pinecrest Place will host an educational event called the 40/70 Rule. It is a program designed to help adult children learn about issues facing their aging parents. This free event will be held Wednesday, July 27, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at Pinecrest. We wanted to give the sandwich generation some things to think about as they deal with their parents, said Sherrie Ngo, sales director at Pinecrest Place. The seminar will have a social half hour for networking with other attendees, then an hour-long program with tips for the participants. Joining the Pinecrest staff in the presentations will be a certified financial Planner, Drew LaGrande, local attorney, and Brenda Chappell of Moss Feaster. This program is designed to provide insight on the issues facing seniors and to give some real information about the options available. Being aware is the best way to prepare. Hopefully, this program will help adult children begin discussions with their parents, making future decisions easier, said Chappell. Topics will include options in retirement living, how to pay for it, what legal documents are needed to protect your parents interests and finally, how to pre-plan the final days. We want the participants to leave with a better sense on how to talk to their parents, and with a check list of things they need to do to make their parents future, and theirs, easier, says Ngo.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK Nautical Structures Industries, a yacht accessory manufacturing corporation, will be expanding its operations to a larger Pinellas Park facility and adding about 30 new employees to its staff over the next three years. We are currently over capacity at this point in time, Lynsy Skewes, company controller, said. Weve been able to come through the recession and start hiring again. Nautical Structures Industries manufactures deck cranes, stairs and boarding equipment for yachts. The company will be moving from their current facility at 10351 72nd St. N., on the south side of Bryan Dairy Road, to a vacant, 94,000-square-foot building about half a mile away on the north side of the highway, near the intersection with Belcher Road. Along with purchasing the propertys 5 acres, the company is investing about $6 million into the expansion project. We are thrilled to report that business is great, and its the right time to take our operations to another level, Nautical Structures president Bob Bolines stated in a press release. The city of Pinellas Park and Pinellas County Economic Development have been enormously helpful as weve put together our expansion plan. The city and county economic development helped the company take advantage of Floridas Qualified Target Industry program, which gives a tax refund for new jobs in targeted industries. The company also received help with financing the expansion through an Industrial Revenue Bond, through which local governments can offer qualified manufacturers tax-free, belowmarket interest rates to help them purchase land, buildings and equipment. By helping Nautical Structures grow its operations in Pinellas Park, existing jobs will be retained and new jobs will be added. Wages from these jobs will have a local economic impact of $1.9 million annually, Mike Meidel, director of county economic development, stated. The retention of existing businesses is critical to Pinellas Countys economic success. The company currently employs 37 people, including five engineers who help customize about 85 percent of its products. The new jobs to be added to its operations will vary from hightech, higher-paid jobs, such as an industrial engineer and quality control manager to specialized jobs such as welders, manual mechanists and hydraulic, electrical and mechanical assemblers, Skewes said. Weve been getting very busy, which is very good for us, she said. We may have to be hiring for a second shift. The renovation of Nautical Structures new facilities at 7301 114th Ave. will take about six to eight months to complete, Skewes said. The building has been abandoned for about five years and subject to internal vandalism. The company began demolition at the site June 29. The plan is to move NSI Precision, its division that produces customized parts for other manufacturers, in October and slowly move the rest of the company in by the beginning of 2012, Skewes said. Theres so many people that are going to be involved in this, she said, of the expansion, mentioning the contractors and subcontractors hired through the renovation process. Its not just helping one medium-sized company. Its going to be helping a lot of people. Nautical Structures started in 1983 as a smaller-scale manufacturer, making small davits and tail-lifts. Weve grown quite a bit from back then, Skewes said. Were on a kind of upswing again, and its great. The company exports about 85 to 90 percent of its products, she said. I am very happy with Nautical Structures choice to remain in Pinellas Park, the citys mayor Bill Mischler stated. Job creation, repurposing of an underutilized site, business retention these are all elements of a healthy city that will greatly benefit the citizens of Pinellas Park.Pinellas Park business expected to create 30 jobs Photo by JULIANA A.

Martha brings a unique combination of professional animal welfare and nonprofit management experience which will serve us well in achieving our mission to be the leader in animal advocacy for the Tampa Bay community, said James Lutz, SPCA Tampa Bay president. Bodens career has included executive positions in the forprofit workplace as well as in the not-for-profit sector. This experience has allowed her to leverage her business knowledge in the support of animal welfare. She served as the CEO of the Humane Society of Indianapolis from 2002 through mid-2008. Under Bodens leadership the HSI staff streamlined internal procedures, set goals and measured their progress in increased animal adoptions and other service priorities. Even as the national economy faltered, annual contributions to HSI grew, as did the number of donors and repeat gifts, substantially reducing the organizations budget deficit. Boden will lead the SPCA Tampa Bay team that has been in a state of transition since the departure of executive director Beth Lockwood in October 2009. Bodens selection as the new leader is the result of an intensive nationwide search. Boden is relocating from Cincinnati, Ohio, where she established a project management office within a division of the global consulting firm Accenture LLP.Pawnshop expands into ClearwaterCLEARWATER Big Tims Pawn recently opened its second retail store, located at 1690 Clearwater Largo Road.

His customers were looking for a more northern county location. The staff at Big Tims Pawn Clearwater has more than 20 years of pawnshop experience. Big Tims Pawn is committed to improving the Pinellas County community by sponsoring local police and high school events like the Pinellas County Sheriffs Athletic Program and the Northeast High Cross Country program.Jazzercise to host open houseLARGO Laura Price, a Largoarea Jazzercise instructor, will offer a citywide free-for-all Jazzercise open house Tuesday, Aug. 2, at St. Pauls United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall Gym, on the corner of Highland Avenue and Rosery Road.

Eight OClock Theatres pleasing production of Paul Rudnicks I Hate Hamlet takes a stab at it with bare bodkin, no less. The comedy runs through July 17 at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive. I Hate Hamlet revolves around an out-of-work actor: Andrew Rally, though unemployed, is coasting on a wave of celebrity. His work on a television series has earned him acclaim. After the show is canceled, he relocates to New York to seek different opportunities. While waiting for another acting job, Rally is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage in an outdoor production. Unfortunately, Rally hates Hamlet. I Hate Hamlet is set in a gothic New York apartment once home to John Barrymore, the celebrated actor known for his groundbreaking portrayals of Hamlet and Richard III on stage; and, to a lesser extent, for cinematic roles in films such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Don Juan. Through his aversion to performing in Hamlet, Rally inadvertently summons the ghost of Barrymore dressed in traditional Shakespearean attire. Barrymore vows to convince Rally to go on with the show and to prepare for his performance as the Prince of Denmark. Kate Gaudet directs the Eight OClock Theatre production of I Hate Hamlet. In her notes, Gaudet underscores the most important aspect of the play. This is a comedy about facing and overcoming fear fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of not being worthy, Gaudet writes. All of the characters have something to overcome to hilarious results. That crucial component grounds the comedy and allows its characters to become something more than two-dimensional players in some frivolous farce. The cast is up to the challenge, too. Travis Moore plays Andrew Rally. Moore frames the role perfectly, projecting a mediocre actor with just enough aptitude to get by in front of television cameras. Moore is a caricature when necessary but he also reveals Rallys apprehension and doubt at the right moments. Andrew Hughes portrays John Barrymore, amusingly accentuating the late actors grandiosity. He often utters his lines with thunderous bombast, evoking all the bluster and bravado that one might imagine from a reanimated Barrymore. At other moments, Hughes tones down his swagger and emphasizes his charm. This is best illustrated in a scene in which he is reunited with a former lover. Alexandra Gonzalez plays Rallys girlfriend Deidre McDavy. McDavy, who has frustrated Rally with her strict vow of chastity, is a 29-year-old aspiring actress with virtually no talent. Gonzalez, a senior at Roosevelt University majoring in musical theater at the Chicago College of Performing Arts Theatre Conservatory, relishes the role as she tenderly parodies the would-be thespian. Playing Rallys agent Lillian Troy is Linda Rosenfeld, who appeared previously in a number of musicals and comedies in the Tampa Bay area. A student of dialect, her depiction of Troy is a shrewd combination of Old World matriarch and Hollywood star peddler.Amy Dobberts Felicia Dantine is a wonderfully exaggerated New York real estate agent the one who dumps Rally in Barrymores lap. Dobbert, last seen in EOTs The Drowsy Chaperone, embellishes the character generously. Jim Bennett delivers an unforgettable performance as Gary Peter Lefkowitz, Rallys lingering Hollywood connection. Representing the vacuous void of mass-market entertainment, Lefkowitz is bluster and conceit and rash decisions. Bennett captures the impetuous, boisterous deal-making arrogance perfectly as he tries to dissuade Rally from performing Shakespeare for squirrels. Rudnick masterfully sets up I Hate Hamlet to stress the differences between Hollywood and Broadway, between television and the stage, between players and performers and between celebrity and art. Along the way, he lampoons chastity, fleeting fame, Shakespearean vanity and the absurdity of Hollywood success. Performances of I Hate Hamlet are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m. Matinees are Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students 19 and younger with identification.

By LISA HEINJacks, hopscotch, pick up sticks, kickball, go fish, monopoly, slap the jack, marbles. Are any of these terms familiar with your child? If not, lets talk! These were childhood games many of us grew up playing. In fact, when we got bored we would play one or two of these games on any given day and for hours! We never got tired of playing, nor did we fight with one another. Several months ago, two children from my neighborhood were walking around looking bored. So, I said hello to them and asked them what they were doing. The response was nothing. As we continued to talk with one another I saw them getting restless, so I asked them if they would like to play a game. They agreed and I went inside and brought out the only game I could find Pick Up Sticks. They looked at me with total blank stares on their faces. When I explained the object of the game, they began to smile and thought it was pretty cool. They played for about an hour and then ran home and asked their parents if they would buy some. (And guess what? They didnt go through withdrawals being off their cell phone!) When we go back to the basics we might be able to create a diversion for our children. If we take a chance by sharing other things to do, we just might help our children find their childhood, better yet their social skills. Children love to play games. They just dont know it, because this world of technology has swallowed them up and left them believing if they dont have a phone in their hand, they are not accepted or part of the in crowd. When did a cell phone become an oxygen machine? Can you say epidemic? When did cell phones become the only way of staying connected in the world? Wasnt the purpose of giving our children a cell phone was to keep us connected in times of emergencies? Didnt we tell our children when we handed over this technical gadget that they were to use it to check in and that they better make sure they answered the phone every time we called them? And, so, hows that working for you? How did it get so out of control? The answer may be simple; we didnt stick to our boundaries! Children need boundaries. Children need diversions in their lives. That doesnt mean speaking to a hundred people in one day. Children dont need to be talking or texting when they are at home either. If they need to speak to someone, use the home phone, if they need to send someone a note, write it and send it in the mail. Can we stop this insanity and get back to the simplicities of life? It is up to us, the parent, to plot a different path in our family life. There is a time and a place for everything. The time is not 24 hours a day communication. Limits are a necessity. There should be limits on computer time, cell phone usage, and limits on what they are watching on television. Boundaries. Limits. These are not bad words; in fact, they are probably two of the most important words when raising children. We know that media and/or social media is not what it was when we were children. I get it! But, havent we overdone the point? Do we even understand the health issues showing up from being in front of the computer too much and/or holding a cell phone to our ears too long? If we did, would that make us look at things differently? We would limit our children to keep them healthy? Technology has a purpose and a place. But, we dont have to continue to allow our children to pressure us into buying them every single social media gadget out there. We really need to understand that we are raising children with another addiction technological gadgets! Take time to wean your children from these addictive devices. Maybe, just maybe, if we show them that social media comes in all forms they just might want to check it out. And, they might just thank you!Lisa Hein is a speaker, author and radio talk show host of Everyday Parenting on www.Radio EarNetwork.com.

Call 587-6793 or visit www.eightoclocktheatre.com. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m. Matinees are Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets for musicals are $26 adults, $16 for children 19 and younger with identification.

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise: his series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When Andrews agent visits, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrews apartment. They summon his ghost and from the moment Barrymore returns, Andrews life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ego, presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actors destiny. The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore and his sword.

NCM Fathom, Globe Theatre and Arts Alliance Media will present Shakespeares Globe London Cinema Series, an exclusive in-theater series of classic Shakespeare titles. The performances were recorded in 2010 shot at the prestigious Globe Theatre in London, Shakespeares theatrical home. The series kicked off last month with The Merry Wives of Windsor, but theres more thespian entertainment on the way. Locally, the series will be shown at: Park Place Stadium 16, 7200 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas Park AMC Woodland Square 20, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar Henry IV, Part 1, the next installment in the series, will be shown Monday, Aug. 1. The play is part of Shakespeares second historical tetralogy which includes Richard II, Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, and Henry V. The play focuses on a series of events beginning with Hotspurs battle at Homildon and ending with the defeat of the rebels at Shrewsbury in 1403. The play examines honor, rebelliousness and the struggle for power as well as Elizabethan era life. Written no later than 1597, Henry IV, Part 1 can be viewed as a coming-of-age tale revolving around Hal or as a critique of the politics of medieval England. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, the production stars Roger Allam, Jamie Parker, Oliver Cotton, William Gaunt, Sam Crane and Christopher Godwin. Allam earned an Olivier Award for his portrayal of Falstaff. Other presentations in the series include: Henry IV, Part 2, on Thursday, Aug. 18. Picking up where Henry IV, Part 1 ended, the play focuses on young Prince Hals journey toward kingship. Over the course of the two plays, Shakespeare analyzes father-and-son relationships, presenting Falstaff as comic and disobedient father substitute for the Prince of Wales who is estranged from his own dying father, Henry IV. The king also provides a metaphor for England, which is in decline and seeking rebirth. Henry VIII, Thursday, Sept. 15. This work is based upon the life of Henry VIII of England. Directed by Mark Rosenblatt, Henry VIII illustrates the power struggle between the court and Cardinal Wolsey, the kings first minister and a symbol of Catholic power. Presented as a political thriller, Henry VIII is steeped with Machiavellian scheming and royal pageantry. The cast includes Dominic Rowan, Miranda Raison, Ian McNeice, Anthony Howell and Kate Duchene. The original Globe Theatre was an open-roof venue constructed of wood and thatch. Built in 1599 by Shakespeares own production company, the theater was destroyed by a fire in 1613 during a staging of Henry VIII, A theatrical cannon, used during the performance, misfired. Flames quickly engulfed the buildings wooden beams and thatching. Though rebuilt in 1614, the theater was closed by Puritans in 1642 and razed not long after. The current incarnation, Shakespeares Globe, is a reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre. The Elizabethan-style playhouse was built in the London Borough of Southwark on the south bank of the Thames approximately 200 yards from the site of the original theater. It opened in 1997. Shakespeares Globe London Cinema Series will be broadcast in more than 260 movie theaters across the United States through NCMs exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. NCM Fathom continues to offer audiences the finest in performing arts experiences in their local movie theaters, said Dan Diamond, vice president of NCM Fathom, in a press release. This international collaboration will showcase some of Shakespeares finest works from the legendary Globe Theatre in London. Tickets for Shakespeares Globe London Cinema Series are available at participating theater box offices.

It can get quite expensive if you dont know how to find deals or know special days for reduced admission prices. One of my kids favorite places to go is Tampas Lowry Park Zoo. The kids can go on rides and interact with the animals. On Sunday, July 24, admission price is just $5 per person. Any other day the price is $23.95 for adults and children; ages 3 to 11, are $18.95. Parking is always free, which is a plus. You may have to fight the crowds on this $5 day, but you never know unless you go. If you like museums, one of Tampas newest museums, the Glazer Childrens Museum, is offering $2 admission per person on the first Tuesday of each month. The special is called Dollar Target Tuesdays. You have to go between 2 and 7 p.m., but the savings are well worth it. If you visit there any other day, admission is $15 per adult and $9.50 per child. This deal will last until March 6, 2012. How about bringing the kids to Tampas Museum of Science and Industry, MOSI? All summer long until Aug. 26, teachers get in free with a school ID. Teachers also get $5 off for up to six of their family members. If you arent a teacher, you can try to go Sunday, Aug. 7 Friendship Day! Bring a friend and one of you gets in free. MOSI also offers a buy one, get one deal on Aug. 21 for senior citizens day and Sept. 3 to 5 for Labor Day weekend. You save half the price by going on these days. The regular price for adults is $20.95, seniors are $18.95 and children, ages 2 to 12, are $16.95. The Great Explorations Childrens Museum in St. Petersburg offers active military personnel and first responders with ID free admission in the month of July. Regular admission is $10 for those ages 2 to 54, and if you are 55 years old and up, the cost is $9. Also in St. Petersburg is the Salvador Dali Museum. This newly renovated museum displays the works of the late Spanish surrealist. The cheapest price is on Thursday night, between 5 and 8 p.m., when admission is $10 and children, ages 6 to 12, are $7. Otherwise, adult prices are $21. If your kids like dinosaurs, you need to head to Plant City, where you will find Dinosaur World. This attraction has more than 100 life-like creatures you can look at, some up to 80 feet tall. When you purchase a full admission priced ticket in August, you can come back in December for free. Tickets are $12.75 for adults and $9.75 for children, ages 3 to 12. One thing unique about this place is you can bring your friendly pets on leashes! Have you heard about the movie coming out in September called Dolphin Tale, featuring Clearwater Marine Aquariums Winter the dolphin? The aquarium was where part of the movie was filmed and has been renovated. It is a lot of fun and educational for kids. The best coupons out there are the ones that come in your mail, the Valpak coupons. You can get one free admission when you buy an admission. Regular prices are $9.95 for children, ages 3-12; $14.95 for adults, ages 13-59, and $10.95 for seniors. Of course, Busch Gardens is a fun place to go. I did some checking and found that the best price for a one-day ticket is to purchase a Busch Gardens gift card at Publix. It costs $59.95 for an adult or child ticket. If you purchase online, an adult ticket is $79.99 and a childs ticket, for ages 3 to 9, is $71.99. If you dont want to go on these special event days, your next best savings is to get a 2011 Entertainment book, which right now cost $8.99 with free shipping (visit www.enter tainment.com). In there, you will find tons of coupons including: a free admission when you buy an admission ticket at Great Explorations; at MOSI, if you buy a ticket, you can get each additional ticket 50 percent off; at Dinosaur World, up to four admission prices are 50 percent off regular price as well as buy one, get one at the Salvador Dali Museum and Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The price can add up when you take your kids to these attractions, so knowing the days and times to go for discounted admission prices is the key.

EXP. 7-21-11$799 Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2Genre: Action, adventure, fantasy and adaptation Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Tom Felton, Bill Nighy and John Hurt Director: David Yates Rated: PG-13 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two fulllength parts. In 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. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here. Winnie the PoohGenre: Family and animation Cast: John Cleese, James Cummings, Craig Ferguson, Travis Oates and Bud Luckey Director: Don Hall and Stephen J. Anderson Rated: G Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh. Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical bear of very little brain and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. The entire story takes place in the course of a day. Its business as usual in the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh wakes up absolutely famished and he happens to have no honey. So that sets him out on his journey, which is ultimately derailed first by a contest to find Eeyore a new tail. Pooh later finds a note from Christopher Robin that reads: Gone out. Busy. Back soon. But then Owl misinterprets the note, proclaiming that the boy has been captured by a creature called a Backson. Soon, the whole gang is on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from the imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear that simply hoped to find some honey.The following will open in limited release.

Salvation BoulevardGenre: Comedy and thriller Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Ed Harris, Jim Gaffigan, Marisa Tomei and Jennifer Connelly Director: George Ratliff Not rated Pastor Dan is a charismatic preacher who has captivated a city with his charm. Ex-deadhead and recovering hippie Carl is one of the loyal sheep in his flock. When Dan finds himself in a compromising situation, Carl is called into service in a most unconventional way. The megachurch is cast into shadow, and a hellish storm begins brewing that could jeopardize its entire existence. The road to hell in this case, Salvation Boulevard is paved with good intentions gone hysterically wrong. This material is perfectly suited for George Ratliff, who directed the award-winning documentary Hell House and the 2007 Sundance Film Festival hit Joshua. Down to every detail, you feel you are in capable hands. In a situation ripe with possibilities, the gloriously talented casts push their performances to the limit, spiraling this film toward instant cult-comedy status. In Salvation Boulevard, Ratliff peels back the onion to take a satirical look at Christian fanaticism one guilty pleasure at a time.
