City gets break on health insurance By TOM GERMONDLARGO Tobacco-free workplace policies are contributing to the citys 13.59 percent decrease in the overall premium for medical insurance for the next calendar year. City commissioners Aug. 2 approved a $6.29 million proposal from United Healthcare to provide medical insurance to city employees beginning Jan. 1 and authorized the city manager to execute a final contract with the firm. In discussions with United Healthcare, city officials asked whether United provided any type of premium reduction for tobacco-free workplace policies. United Healthcare responded to the citys tobaccofree policies by reducing the quoted premium an additional 2 percent, a savings of about $138,000. The commission decided May 17 to prevent employees from using tobacco during city paid working hours in city buildings, at city parks and on city grounds. A longstanding policy also prohibits the city from hiring police officers and firefighters who use tobacco products. We havent gone out for a request for a proposal for three years, said Human Resource Director Susan Sinz. So we knew this year we would have to test the waters and go out and find out whats out there for us. City officials received proposals for its fully insured option. The current provider, Cigna, submitted a renewal quote with no increase in the premium. The other three vendors proposals included increases: Humana, 3.68 percent; Blue Cross Blue Shield, 7.24 percent; and PRM of Florida, 29.75 percent. We got a very aggressive and competitive quote from United Healthcare, Sinz said. The insurance program mirrors its current coverage, she said. Commissioner Robert Murray commended the citys benefit committee on its recommendations regarding health insurance.

Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives provided several details about events leading up to the arrest of Richie Urich, 19, of Dallas. He was booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of lewd and lascivious conduct. The name of the victim will not be released. According to the sheriffs report, the victim told an elderly adult in her home that she was going to the movies with another relative. The victim left the home at around 4 p.m. When the victim failed to return in about three hours, the family called the other family member, and asked about the girl. The other family member advised that they had not been with the victim and had not gone to the movies. Based on the information recovered some of which was sexually explicit, the age of the child and the potential danger in the situation, detectives gathered information to meet the criteria for an Amber Alert which was approved and authorized by the FDLE for activation around 4:45 a.m. As they worked to activate the Amber Alert detectives also were actively searching for the girl and soon pinpointed an address in Orlando the Central Park Apartments on Westgate Drive. With assistance from the Orlando Police Department, officers checked the address and found the girl at around 8 a.m. The Amber Alert was canceled. Pinellas detectives then drove to Orlando to continue the Pinellas investigation. Orlando police released the victim to her family at the conclusion of the interviews. Pinellas detectives are still reviewing the interview results and the evidence to determine what charges may result in Pinellas County.VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenWhat if Rupert Murdochs voicemail were hacked? Page 9A. County Commission OKs tentative millage rates By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER With little discussion, Pinellas County Commissioners approved tentative millage rates July 28 for fiscal year 2011-2012. If the rates are approved, residents will see increases in their property tax bills to pay for emergency medical services and possibly fire protection. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1. Commissioner Norm Roche reminded everyone that the tentative rates could change before final approval. Commissioners are setting the maximum potential not the final, Roche said. John Woodruff, director of Pinellas Countys Office of Management and Budget, told commissioners that the average market value of a single residential property in Pinellas for fiscal year 2012 is about $144,000. The average taxable value is $98,900. He said countywide property taxes on the average value would be $566.05 if commissioners approve a proposed tax rate of 5.7236 mills, which includes the general fund, EMS and health department. Woodruff said the cost is the equivalent to $1.55 a day in property tax for countywide services. See MILLAGE, page 4A Photo by JIM LAYFIELDDespite having degenerative myelopathy, Lulu, 11, a Welsh corgi, loves to go to the dog park in Walsingham Park for walks and to play with a ball. Canine degenerative myelopathy is a progressive disease that attacks the spinal cords of older dogs. It is believed that the myelin, an insulating sheath surrounding neurons in the spinal chord, is attacked by the immune system, preventing signals from the brain to the lower body. The mutated gene responsible for DM has been found in 43 breeds including German shepherds, boxers, Chesapeake Bay retrievers, Rhodesian ridgebacks and Welsh corgis. A DNA test can be performed to see if a dog carries the gene.For the love of LuluThe fort at Fort De Soto Park reopened July 27 after being closed to the public for a $1.1 million restoration project. The work began in October 2010. The restorative work focused on the repair of clogged air vents and collapsed drainage systems. In addition, excavated sand was replaced and native, drought-resistant dune plants were added to restore the fort to its original camouflaged appearance. Crews also patched cracks, pressure cleaned walkways and access ways, and installed a ramp that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ramp leads to the forts upper observation areas on the south end as well as new stairs on the north end. The restoration project was funded by a $500,000 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, a $246,000 grant from Save Americas Treasures, which is out of the National Parks Service and $354,000 from Penny for Pinellas funds. The largest park within the Pinellas County park system, Fort De Soto Park consists of 1,136 acres on five interconnected islands (keys). The fort is an important part of the areas history. The fort was named after the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto in 1900 and was built toFort De Soto Parks fort reopens after renovations offer a military defense during the Spanish-American War. Fortifications were built on Mullet Key, on which the fort at Fort De Soto was built, and Egmont Key. During this time, Tampa became the port of embarkation for U.S. troops and supplies going to the Caribbean war zones. Fort De Soto was never the site of any major battle and the weapons of the forts on the two islands were never fired in combat. However, that era was significant in terms of the evolution of modern weaponry.

From left are Largo City Commissioner Robert Murray, Damon Kolb, a development associate for the Richman Group, and Pinellas County Commissioners John Morroni, Norm Roche and Karen Seel. By SUZETTE PORTERLARGO Public and private officials came together July 27 for the ceremonial ground breaking for Bayside Court Apartments, an affordable housing complex at 1760 Clearwater-Largo Road. The mixed-income garden-style apartments will be developed by The Richman Group of Florida Inc. Officials estimate the apartments will be ready for leasing by March of 2012. Bayside Court is the latest example of how public and private partnerships can work toward meeting affordable housing needs in Pinellas County, officials said. This is an exciting, creative project that leveraged federal, local and private funding to create a unique community that residents will be delighted to call home, said Anthony M. Jones, director of Pinellas County Community Development and executive director of the Housing Finance Authority. Pinellas County, Largo and the Housing Finance Authority provided financial assistance from the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program, which supports the purchase and redevelopment of foreclosed properties. Neighborhood Lending Partners, a multibank lending consortium that provides financing for developers of affordable housing and community revitalization, collaborated with Pinellas County and the Housing Finance Authority to secure federal funding. The Housing Finance Authority also issued multi-family bonds for the new development, which has been placed in the countys Community Land Trust. JPMorgan Chase & Co. is providing financing of $10.25 million during the construction phase. The new apartment complex replaces a former mobile home park. Code enforcement for the city of Largo cited owners of the park numerous times for violations concerning the 50-year-old trailers and the property itself. One former owner tried to sue the city claiming the property was illegally annexed into the city, only to have the case thrown out by the judge. Largo officials say they are excited about the project and its fit with the ongoing redevelopment along the Clearwater-Largo Road corridor. This project fulfills the citys vision for creating a vibrant community, said Carol Stricklin, Largos Community Development. Bayside Court is not the first affordable housing project developed by the Richman Group. The company also built Belleair Place Apartments at Ponce De Leon Boulevard and Clearwater-Largo Road, which by a developers agreement, must include up of 70 percent affordable housing units. Bayside Court will consist of 144 twoand three-bedroom apartments with unit sizes ranging from 1,022 square feet to 1,288 square feet, according to a press release. The floor plans include 9-foot ceilings, private balconies, and fully equipped kitchens with Energy Star appliances and built-in microwave; Shaker-style cabinetry, granite-like countertops and ceramic tile floors. Bayside Court also will offer outdoor amenities, including a resort-style pool, a playground and a car-care area. The 4,000-square-foot clubhouse will feature a resident lounge with a billiards table, an activity room with WiFi, computer workstations and a full fitness center. Leasing information is available at www.baysidecourtfl.com or 888-344-9222.Bayside Court is the latest example of how public and private partnerships can work toward meeting affordable housing needs in Pinellas County, officials said.
4A Leader, August 4, 2011 MILLAGE, from page 1ATentative millage rates approved include: EMS: 0.8506, an increase from 0.5932 Health Department: 0.0622, same as current year MSTU, unincorporated areas: 2.0857, same as current year Public Library Cooperative: 0.4437, same as current year Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District: 0.4378, same as current year Feather Sound Community Services District: 0.5660, same as current year Pinellas Planning Council: 0.0125, same as current yearProposed millage rates for fire districtsSeven of 12 fire districts are proposing increases in their millage rates Clearwater, Dunedin, Gandy, Largo, High Point, Tierra Verde and South Pasadena. The increases are mostly due to decreases in taxable values. Woodruff said decreases ranged from 2.7 percent to 21.3 percent. High Point fire district is requesting the highest increase of 0.9272. The current millage rate is 3.2644. The proposed rate is 4.1916, the most expensive in the county. Largo fire district proposes the smallest increase of 0.0749. The current millage rate is 3.484. The proposed rate is 3.5133, the second highest in Pinellas. Clearwater proposes an increase of 0.5206 from 2.1385 to 2.6591. Dunedin wants an increase of 0.2474 from 2.0102 to 2.2576. South Pasadena is requesting the second highest increase of 0.9069 to bring the millage rate up to 3.1257. The current rate is 2.2188. Tierra Verde requested 0.1705 be added to its current millage rate of 1.7382. Gandy fire districts request was for 0.1008 more to bring its millage rate from 2.1594 to 2.2602. Belleair fire district has the lowest millage rate in the county and officials propose to maintain the rate at 1.7320. Seminole fire district, with the third lowest millage rate, also proposes to keep the status quo at 1.9581. Pinellas Park fire district proposes no changes to its millage rate of 2.3675; Safety Harbors proposed rate of 2.6800 remains unchanged from the current year. Tarpon Springs fire district proposes no changes, keeping its rate of 2.3745.Save Our Homes cap and the Recapture RuleWoodruff explained how tax bills between similar properties might be different. Currently, 89 percent of the 434,304 parcels on the countys property tax roll are residential properties. Woodruff said 64 percent of them have homestead exemptions and are eligible for the Save Our Homes cap on taxable values. He also said the percentage of eligible homes is declining due to continued decreases in market values. In 2012, 48 percent of homestead properties have Save Our Homes benefits, compared with more than 90 percent in 2006. The Recapture Rule raises the assessed (capped) value of a qualifying homestead property by the maximum of 3 percent, or the annual change in the Consumer Price Index, whichever is less. The CPI increase for FY 2012 (2011 tax roll) values is 1.5 percent. The Recapture Rule applies to all properties with assessed values limited by Save Our Homes where the capped value is less than full market value whether or not that propertys market value increased during that calendar year. Due to the Recapture Rule associated with Save Our Homes, a homeowners taxes could increase even if the market value of the home decreases, he said. Woodruff gave an example of the effect of the Recapture Rule for a property with a market value of $205,000 in fiscal year 2011 and $185,000 in fiscal year 2012. Property taxes in 2011 were $565.81. In 2012, the taxes would be $606.70. He said if a property has suppressed value under Save Our Homes, property taxes will increase due to recapture rule and EMS millage increase. Woodruff also gave an example using a non-homesteaded property with a market value of $205,000 in 2011 and $185,000 in 2012. Property tax on that property in 2011 would have been $1,118. In 2012, the tax bill would be $1,059, which reflects the market value decrease, unless the property qualifies for the 10 percent cap on non-homesteaded property. Woodruff said the increase in EMS millage offset a portion of the tax decrease.TRIM noticesBy law, the county administrator must certify tentative millage rates to the property appraisers office by Aug. 4. The property appraiser then prepares a Truth in Millage notice, which is mailed to all property owners as required by state law. The rates that appear on the TRIM notice is the maximum based on tentative millage rates levied by the county, school board, individual municipalities, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and others. TRIM notices will be mailed Aug. 22. A TRIM e-TownHall meeting is scheduled on Aug. 25, 7 to 8 p.m. to allow residents to ask questions and get more information. Visit www.pinellascounty.org for additional information. Final millage rate and budget approvalCommissioners scheduled two public hearings, as required by law, to take citizens comments. The first hearing is Sept. 6, at which time the commission will adopt the tentative millage rates and budget. At the Sept. 15 hearing, the final millage rates and budget will be approved. Residents can review the proposed budget and send feedback to the commissioners at www.pinellascounty.org/budget.Beach property lines questionedTREASURE ISLAND A former city commissioner hopes to prove to the current city commission that a small section of Sunset Beach behind Caddys is public land. Former Commissioner Ed Gayton requested and was granted time to discuss the matter at an Aug. 2 workshop. Gayton believes a portion of the beach property behind Caddys that owner Tony Amico says belongs to him is actually state land. Gayton said he would come armed with the documentation to prove his point at the Aug. 2 meeting. What do we have to achieve? asked Commissioner Carol Coward. Gayton said it would determine what is public and what is private land. Coward said it was her concern that the city would become embroiled in a legal battle, if the issue were pushed. I, for one, am not interested in being involved in litigation involving the city, said Coward. Weve got too many things to discuss and dont have time for this. Mayor Bob Minning reminded Gayton that the City Commission cannot render a legal opinion on the issue and it opened the door for additional questions. If that is public property, are coolers allowed? Minning asked. Currently, Caddys staff patrols the section and prevents customers with drinks to leave the parcel onto the public beach. Staff also can prevent beachgoers from coming onto the Caddys beach, if it is determined they are under the influence or carrying their own personal alcoholic beverage that was not purchased at Caddys. City attorney Maura Kiefer said she would not give a legal opinion on the issue due to the complexities of the question. This is very complicated and not a simple matter, she said. I highly doubt I will be giving a firm legal opinion on the issue at the workshop. I dont want to get boxed in. In other action, commissioners: Passed an ordinance on first reading amending the Flood Plain Management regulations to require 2 feet of freeboard elevation for all new construction. The adoption of the proposed ordinance is hoped to assist the city in maintaining its current Class 7 community rating system assessment or possibly help improve it to Class 6, which could result in discounts up to 20 percent for flood insurance policy holders. Passed on first reading an ordinance amending the land use regulations as they pertain to churches and special exceptions. Approved a resolution authorizing a Paws For Vets fundraiser Saturday, Aug. 6, 2 to 9 p.m., at the St. Petersburg Lions Club on Sunset Beach, 9300 W. Gulf Blvd. Waived the $350 fee for a variance request by A.J. Spadorcia. Passed a resolution to spend $30,500 to replace the wooden floor in the City Hall auditorium. Passed a resolution approving $23,400 for seawall repairs at Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis. Bob McClureRedington considers extension of waste collection dealREDINGTON BEACH The town will reconsider renewing its current waste collection contract at its Aug. 2 regular board meeting. After discussing residential trash collection again at its July 19 meeting, the board decided to reconsider a resolution for three more years with the towns present provider Waste Services of Florida. Waste Services has provided trash and recycling pickup in town since September 2008. The company bills residents directly for the $15.04 per month service. The extension would, if approved, continue the service until September 2014. Waste Services has agreed to freeze the current rates for the extension. Currently the town has the Waste Services contract through Sept. 30. In April the consensus was to move the contract renewal forward, said Mayor Nick Simons. I would like the board to consider putting the resolution back on the agenda, Simons said. Commissioner Mark Deighton expressed concerns about the process. Im a little dubious about not having any competitive bids I agree (Waste Services) is doing a fine job, he said. It doesnt look like a real possibility that we would get a real competitive bid. I would like to make sure. Commissioner Tom Dorgan broke down the costs. Dollar-fifteen every time Waste Services comes by and picks up a huge pile in front of my house, he said. I think we ought to be satisfied with the service. I dont know anybody (else) that comes to my house for $1.15 and does a good job. Residents shared their satisfaction with their current garbage company. Ive never seen a service that is so professional and complete, said resident David Drillick. Ive met the crew members over several years. They are friendly and helpful. They have gone above and beyond. They have picked things up that in other towns you would never get that picked up and for the cost. I dont think you could ever get a practically lower cost. Representatives from three waste collection firms were at the meeting including present provider Waste Services. Other companies present were Waste Pro and Republic. The consensus of the commission was to reconsider the resolution to renew the trash contract with Waste Services. The commission will vote on that resolution Aug. 2. In other matters: The commission set the tentative ad valorem tax rate at 1.9410, which is the same as this year. The final rate can be lower but not higher. The first public hearing on the budget is Sept. 8. The town approved the annual contract for law enforcement services with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. The cost is $223,677.28, which is 0.41 percent higher than this years contract. The slight increase is due to the cost of vehicle fuel. During public forum a resident shared a drainage problem in front of her home that she said did not exist before the townwide paving project. The city received permission from the City of Seminole for offsite parking of Redington Beach town vehicles in case of evacuation for a storm.Madeira targets personnel cutsMADEIRA BEACH The citys first budget workshop on July 20 gave a preview of the commissions intent in dealing with finance issues this year. As promised during last springs election campaign, the majority of commission members want major cost reductions. On the agenda, and chopping block, were city employee associated expenses. The commission took a wide and detailed look at budget items in all expense categories, ranging from $73,000 to fund the human resource manager position (it was eliminated) to the employee Christmas party (it was kept) and free flu shots for personnel (they are gone). The major cut made during the three-hour discussion was the elimination of funding for the human resource manager job, held by Deborah Cline for the past 15 years. Commissioner Nancy Oakley said a city with 60 employees does not need a full-time HR person. We want to run the city like a business, and no company that size has a human resources director, she said. This is something Ive been saying for years, she added. Mayor Travis Palladeno said some of the candidates for the open finance director position have had experience in HR. The city also has a labor attorney on call that deals with union issues, Oakley pointed out. Elimination of the position would save the city at least $30,000, Palladeno estimated. That figure allowed for a part time clerk for payroll processing, and some labor attorney expenses, he said. Other activities besides payroll take place in human resources, said interim City Manager Bill Mallory. The function includes employee benefits, insurance, negotiating insurance benefits and other activities. Commissioner Terry Lister said Cline has been with the city 13-15 years and done a nice job. Now were going to tell her we dont need her anymore? The money saved by eliminating the HR position can be used for roads and a lot of other things the residents havent gotten because the administration has been so top heavy down here at city hall, Palladeno said. In better times Id understand, he told Lister, but these are not better times. He added, Im not raising taxes. Mallory said the city would not save a whole lot of money by eliminating the HR position, as we would have to pay someone to do those things. The commission agreed in a 3-1 consensus to eliminate funding for the position in the upcoming budget year. Commissioner Carol Reynolds was absent from the meeting. Funding for a special projects coordinator position, which Mallory recommended be created for a two-year period while the city manager and public works jobs are being merged, was taken out of the budget. The position could be recreated if the new city manager sees a need for it, Vander Velde said. Current public works director Michael Maxemow would presumably fill the job. Mallory argued to keep the money in the budget, as a budget amendment would have to be done to re-create and fund the position. Funds are available to hire a special projects coordinator, Mallory said, and the city manager should make the decision, not the commissioners. Fine, Vander Velde retorted. If the city manager feels that is a necessary position, then he can come to (the commission) and request the money, she said. The commission also decided that the city managers administrative assistant should be placed under City Clerk Ginger Stilton. Ginger needs some help the position should go over to her, said Oakley. Palladeno agreed. Thats a great idea, moving the position, he said. Mallory said he would like to look at the idea, to see if it is feasible to do. Oakley responded she had been planning to propose cutting the administrative assistant job from the budget. I understand youre thinking we are stepping on your toes, she told Mallory, but this way Francine (Ettere, the current assistant) is not going to lose her job over it. Mallory said he was not comfortable with the commissions decision. He suggested the city clerk and city manager share the administrative assistant position. A 50/50 funding split, with the position reporting to the city clerk would work, said Vander Velde. The commission put off a decision on the administrative assistant move and the workload split until their Aug. 3 workshop. In other personnel related decisions, the commission decided to keep the annual employee Christmas party, a 15-year tradition, but cancel free flu shots for employees. Their insurance will cover the shots, Vander Velde said. Or they can get them at Walgreens for $25, Palladeno added. Delivery of coffee to city hall at a cost of $1,600 a year also will cease, but supplies of water will continue. Thats just crazy, Oakley said of the delivered coffee. Buy a coffee maker and put it back there, she said. Palladeno said the city should get a coffee vending machine and donate the profits to the citys 9/11 memorial. I could go for that, said Lister. Gone too from the budget is $4,000 a year to maintain a car used by staff members when traveling on city business. They will now use their personal vehicles and be reimbursed a per mile rate for gas and expenses. Money saved from some of the other smaller expense cuts would go toward enhancing the citys Fourth of July fireworks display, the commission decided. A $25,000 goal for fireworks funds was agreed to. Vander Velde acknowledged that the cost cuts and changes the commission is making represent a big departure from the way the city has done business in the past. But now is the time to make major changes, she said. This is the perfect time to do it, when all the management staff is overturning, she said. Wayne AyersHoward house forces code reviewBELLEAIR SHORE Two years ago, the town passed a tough new ordinance enforcing time limits on the start and completion of construction projects. The law was enacted in response to complaints of projects just sneaking along, Mayor John Robertson said at the time. The town needs enforceable regulations to encourage contractors to complete their projects, he said. The ordinance sets a time limit of six months from the issuance of a building permit to begin and allows 24 months from the permit date for completion. A one-time extension of up to six months can be granted by the town commission for circumstances beyond the control of the owner or contractor. The law was viewed as imposing reasonable time limits, even for the builders of Belleair Shores often-outsized luxury residences. That was before Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard announced plans to construct the Casa Del Howard, a 17,500-square-foot home on a gulf-front lot covering over an acre. You cant build that size house, on that lot, on the ocean, in that time frame, Robertson said at the Town Commissions July 19 meeting. On hand to discuss plans for the Howard house and its construction were the architect Dan Dawson of Tampa, and John Kostreles, county community planning coordinator. Dawson estimated construction of a home the magnitude of Howards could take three-and-a-half to four years. A really solid contractor could do it in about three years, he added. The Howard home has special features, Dawson noted, like a Venice-style lazy river running from the swimming pool underneath a series of bridges, and a bowling alley on the ground level with breakaway walls. Dawson termed the river a fundamental part of the design. He said the whole Howard family was really excited by the Venice canal, and would not want to give it up. Robertson said the town has two options to keep the building law from becoming a potential barrier to construction of its welcomed new housing addition. The ordinance could be amended, a solution Robertson said, has the potential for opening a Pandoras box. Or, the ordinance could be left as is, and the case appealed to the towns special magistrate when the construction deadline is not met. Town Attorney John Elias said the property is subject to a code violation if construction is not completed within the allowed two years. However, the commission need not recommend a violation be generated and could drag their feet in enforcing the code. Also, the special magistrate could grant whatever he wants. He described James Yacavone, the magistrate, as very reasonable. Commissioner Robert E. Schmidt Jr. said the contractor should keep a good weather log. Days lost because of weather conditions is a very important consideration in getting an extension, he said. Commissioner Raymond Piscitelli agreed the existing building ordinance should not be changed. He said the commission wants to be completely supportive of the Howard home, but we dont want to leave a loophole for someone else. Robertson said, It is to the towns benefit to get this home done as efficiently and with as much cooperation as we can. Commissioner John E. Hayes Jr. said Howard and his family would be a welcome addition to the town. (Howard) is a down-to-earth human being and the family has rock solid, sound values, he said. Robertson wished architect Dawson luck with the project. Were behind you 100 percent, he said. Wayne Ayers CITY, from page 1Ahaving tobacco-free workplace policies he questioned the numbers. Im very pleased to see we were able to get a 2 percent reduction, and I really commend you on working on that, Murray said. In other matters, commissioners agreed to amend their development code to provide for special signage along the U.S. 19 corridor in the city. The new standards will allow greater height for signs that are to be located on parcels contiguous to U.S. 19, reflecting some of the adjacent jurisdictions regulations to provide more consistency along the corridor. The City Commissions next meeting will be Friday, Aug. 5, 12:30 p.m., at City Hall. The meeting will be a work session on the citys proposed budget for the next fiscal year. The commission will have a work session at City Hall Tuesday, Aug. 9, 6 p.m. On the agenda are alternatives for fire stations and an update on the citys business friendly customer service initiative.

The proposed fiscal year 2012 millage rate of 0.3928 mill takes into account the merger of the budgets of the districts eight basin boards into the governing board, and the $108 million cap on ad valorem property tax collections passed by the Florida Legislature. FY2012 will run from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. The Governing Board merged the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board in May. The merger was implemented to increase efficiency of operations and reduce costs, and is projected to save $350,000 to $400,000 annually. Gov. Rick Scott in June signed legislation that caps the taxes Floridas five water management districts can assess on residential and commercial properties. For the owner of a $150,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, the FY2012 District wide tax would be $39.28 a year, or about $3.27 per month. County property appraisers will use the proposed FY2012 millage rate adopted by the Governing Board when mailing out Truth in Millage notices of proposed property taxes to residents. Two statutorily required public TRIM hearings on the Districts total budget will be held in September. The first will be Sept. 13 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Tampa Service Office. The Governors office and the state legislature will review and approve the budgets of all five water management districts before the second and final public hearing. The Districts second and final TRIM hearing will be Sept. 27 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Brooksville Headquarters. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Governing Board will formally adopt the final millage rate and budget. The public is welcome to attend any Governing Board meeting to provide comment on the proposed budget.State attorney general honors school resource officerLARGO Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi honored Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Deputy Ural Darling as the 2011 School Resource Officer of the Year during the 32nd annual conference of the Florida Association of School Resource Officers in Orlando July 18. More than 300 law enforcement officers from around the state attended the event, which recognized Deputy Darlings outstanding work as a School Resource Officer in Pinellas County. School resource officers play a pivotal role in the lives of our children by protecting and mentoring them, Bondi said. Deputy Darling has earned the trust and respect of the students, teachers, and administrators of the Pinellas County School District and is a remarkable example for the students. Darling began his career in law enforcement with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office in 1995. In 2001, he was assigned to the School Resource Officer Unit for Osceola Middle School, where he has made a positive impact on the schools environment and safety. Between 2001 and 2011, there has been an 86 percent decrease in the number of students arrested, from 83 in 2001 to 12 in 2011. Additionally, Darling teaches personal safety classes, counsels new students, and works with administrators on behavioral solutions for struggling students. Im proud of Deputy Ural Darling and his outstanding work protecting our most vulnerable and precious citizens, children. He is as an example of the outstanding efforts put forth everyday by all the men and women of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office School Resource Officer Unit. Protecting children, school staff, teaching, and being mentors, are just a few of the tasks these deputies perform, said Pinellas County Sheriff Jim Coats.Account established for burn victimSEMINOLE An account has been established at Wells Fargo to benefit a Seminole man who was seriously burned July 21.

Andy Squires, coastal manager for Pinellas County, told members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council July 27 that the state has issued a consolidated joint coastal permit, which opens the door for bid solicitation. The deadline for bid responses is Aug. 10. A contract is expected to be awarded by Sept. 30. Work on the 8.7-mile stretch of beach from Sand Key south to North Redington Beach is expected to begin in April 2012 but could be moved ahead to November. The project time frame is six months to completion. Squires said the sand would come from an area 12 miles offshore, due west of Sand Key Park. This might turn out to be cheaper than going to the Egmont (Key) shoals, said Squires. The process will be loading (onto a barge), unloading (near the beach) and pumping onto the beach. Its fine sand. It should be good quality. Due to funding concerns, the Corps originally targeted the project in two phases. However, in May, the Corps announced it had adequate funding, combined with 2010 carryover funds, to provide the $21 million federal cost share for the entire project. The estimated $35 million cost will be funded 60 percent by federal money, 20 percent ($7 million) state funds and 20 percent ($7 million) by county funds. Meantime, a smaller nourishment project at the north end of Honeymoon Island is expected to start this month. It was last done in 2008. Following the Sand Key project, the next Pinellas nourishment will be Treasure Island and Upham Beach, starting in late 2013 or early 2014.Pedestrian flagsRedington Beach Mayor Nick Simons said the yellow pedestrian crossing flags used along Gulf Boulevard are disappearing and will ultimately need to be replaced. Since municipalities dont want the cost of replacement, the plan by Pinellas County planner Sandy Knoebel is to solicit advertising on the flags to cover the cost. We have enough flags to last another six months, said Simons. So the decision doesnt need to be made today. But there are already some companies interested in the endorsements. Reportedly, one of the interested parties is Payless Car Rental. We will tell Sandy were OK with advertising but want to have a final say on who it is, said Simons.Emergency preparationsSally Bishop, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management, discussed the importance for town governments on the beach to make interim plans for operation in the event of a hurricane evacuation. If you havent done so already, you need to work with your fire departments and find out where your emergency operation centers are going to be off the island, said Bishop. Where is the EOC going to be and is there going to be room for you? Who is going to go? It is critical that these conversations take place. Bishop said knowing where a town government is going to go during a storm and where it will operate from after the storm needs to be planned. You may come back to a city hall thats not functional for a long time, she said.PSTA repMark Deighton, a former town commissioner in Redington Beach, will replace R.B. Johnson of Indian Rocks Beach on the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority board of directors. Johnsons term expires Sept. 30. Deighton will serve a term through Sept. 30, 2014. He will represent beach interests from Belleair Beach south to St. Pete Beach.Permits issued for Sand Key nourishment project By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH The citys long, winding and sometimes tortuous quest to find a city manger appears to have ended. The Board of Commissioners met July 29 in a three-hour, three meeting marathon session to interview, discuss and choose among three remaining candidates. A fourth finalist, James Gleason, who had been interim city manager of Mascotte, withdrew from consideration after being offered the permanent city manager position there. Gleason had been the top choice of Mayor Travis Palladeno. That left Ken Hurst, a U.S. Army Special Forces colonel, Peter Lombardi, a past city manager of Treasure Island for 17 years, and Scott Sundermeier, who has spent nearly his entire career as a public works official in Coconut Creek, Florida. After hearing the candidates describe their qualifications, questioning and interviewing each one, the commissioners stated their preferences. Palladeno and Commissioners Nancy Oakley and Robin Vander Velde chose Sundermeier, Commissioner Terry Lister went for Lombardi, while Vice Mayor Carol Reynolds picked Hurst. Sundermeiers selection was approved in a 3-2 vote held at a special commission meeting that followed the workshop sessions. The split vote was the same that has divided the commission on a number of issues. Palladeno, Oakley and Vander Velde were in favor, Lister and Reynolds voted no. Lombardis chances were not helped by his late arrival for the interview session. He gave no excuses when his turn to speak came up, acknowledging, being late for your own interview is not a good sign. Lombardi told the commission he had started a city (Pinecrest in Miami-Dade County) from scratch and left it with the second lowest millage rate in the county. He described himself as a hands-on person who does not manage from the office. I spend time in the field meeting with public works employees, the business community and citizens groups, he said. Hurst said his military background would serve him well in running the city. He has managed budgets up to $10 million, he said, and been in charge of extensive fleet maintenance and huge motor pools. In the military, he said, you learn to stay neutral in politics, and how to get what you need and get things done. You will be pleased with my skills and work ethic, Hurst told the commission. I want to make Madeira Beach a beautiful city. Sundermeier, who has an extensive public works background but little city manager experience, told the commission he has had experience in dealing with people and achieving results through consensus. He said the city must constantly strive for the best quality and most sustainable projects your resources will provide. Sundermeier stressed his experience in parks and recreation. He has done facility renovations, managed his citys largest park renovation project, and initiated a number of green projects. Sundermeier said he strives for the continuous improvement of projects. Just because somethings done this way today doesnt mean it cant be done better tomorrow, he said. A balanced budget and financial stability would be priorities, he said. Sundermeier said he believes in collaboration and empowerment of city employees and expects them to be creative and demonstrate commitment. Employee performance should be monitored, he said, and we need to give them what they need to be successful. The insight of city staff is instrumental to making decisions, Sundermeier said. We need to be able to listen, understand what they are saying, and build consensus. From what he has seen, Sundermeier said it is evident the city lacks direction, and we must work to create a clear new direction. Priorities need to be established for projects, and then the city must move ahead to implement those, like street resurfacing, that are high on the list. Citizen participation in the process is important, Sundermeier emphasized. Townhall meetings and charrettes are possibilities. We have to reach out to the community my door has to be always open, he said. Palladeno said following the meeting that he was drawn to Sundermeier after talking to elected officials Sundermeier worked with. They told me he will do whatever it takes to get the job done, does not stress, and really worked for the residents. Palladeno said he had been impressed with all of the final city manager candidates. But I feel Sundermeier is the best fit for the city. Lister said afterward that, while he did not vote for Sundermeier, I will support him 100 percent. Scott SundermeierMadeira Beach commission picks a city manager

The high volume of beach goers raises the risk of hazardous situations every day that call for a team that can see whats happening before its going to happen. Brafford became a lifeguard since 2001 as a part-time summer gig at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina until firefighter school started back up. He has been a lifeguard ever since then and even moved to Florida because of the year-round demand for the beach and water safety. People are drawn to this beach, he said. With a high volume of people going to the beach, the lifeguard standards have to be difficult enough so that the strongest candidates are found. The process begins with a physical tryout, which varies by beach. The United States Lifesaving Association set the minimum standards, but lifeguard supervisors at each beach can add additional standards if they choose. The bare minimum you have to perform to qualify is to complete the 500-meter swim in 10 minutes or less, Brafford said. We take ours a little bit further though. We first have an open water swim followed by a one-mile run and then the 500-meter swim, all in under 18 minutes, he said. After the physical portion is passed, the candidate will go through a series of interviews to determine if they are a good fit for the beach. Health and medical knowledge is a definite plus for those interested in joining the Clearwater Beach Patrol, Brafford said. If both sections are passed, mock scenarios are put in place, which test their ability to deal with a passive or active victim. Active swimmers are those who are struggling in the water while they are conscious, while those who are passive are not. There are 17 guards currently on staff, only five of which are full-time. The other 12 are considered seasonal, though they will sometimes work up to 11 months out of the year. Eight lifeguards are on the beach each day, spread out between various posts, including the three towers that separate the north and south beaches. The team has a strong medical background of the 17, 11 are first responders, four are EMTs and there is one paramedic, which is remarkable compared to other beaches, Brafford said. Each morning, the group has a meeting to review where everyone will be posted, weather conditions and any other important information they will need for the day. They talk about facts that are found on status boards at the lifeguard posts throughout the beach, which are often overlooked. The two most important things to remember are to swim near a lifeguard and read our warning signs that we post, Brafford said. We are the most knowledgeable people on the beach; we know everything thats going on at our beach and what the weather is doing, he said. The towers also display a colored flag that represents the days conditions, from weather to marine alerts, such as stingray or jellyfish warnings. These flags help keep people safe and educated on whats going on in the water, especially for the tourists like the ones lifeguard Jill Sears has met who didnt know what stingrays are and why they needed to shuffle their feet. Other common issues are people not eating or failing in staying hydrated while at the beach, not keeping close enough tabs on their children and going out too deep, lifeguard Aaron Thomas said. When its low tide, the sand bar can be pushed back up to 15 feet past the pole line, and swimmers arent supposed to go past that line, Thomas said. So people are constantly going out on the sand bar because its only knee-deep there, but it gets deep right before you get out there, which can be a huge issue. Mike Hostetter has been a lifeguard for 11 years, with 10 of those being on Clearwater Beach. He says that the ways in which lifeguards are viewed and the dynamic of people on the beach has changed since the early years when he first started. Lifeguarding was totally different back then; there was much more public respect for us, Hostetter said. People knew the rules better, too. Now we have to sort of parent society, whereas before it was black and white, this is what you can and cant do; it isnt like that anymore. Some of the lifeguards have also noticed a definite increase in the amount of people at the beach this year as opposed to last year or even a few years ago. Holidays and weekends tend to be the busiest times, but in the Sunshine State where beach season often replaces fall and sometimes the winter season, a Tuesday can be just as busy as a Saturday, Sears said. Having enough to drink and eat before, during and after a beach trip, wearing strong enough sunscreen and swimming near a lifeguard are frequently forgotten issues that may ruin an otherwise fun day at the beach and can have serious consequences.

People with cerebral palsy who spend their whole lives in a chair can embrace freedom and independence. People with severe autism are calm for weeks after a Sailability sailboat trip. Sailability is a nonprofit organization based out of the Clearwater Community Sailing Center that allows people with disabilities the opportunity to either be taken for a sailing outing or to sail themselves using specially designed boats. This year it celebrates its 10-year anniversary. One of the exciting things is that from land when someone looks out at all the sailboats, no one can tell which are the ones being sailed by people with disabilities, said Claudia Nable, president of Sailability. It levels the playing field and everyone is just a sailor. Were an empowerment program that just happens to sail, said Tom Calhoun, vice president of Sailability. Nable used to volunteer in St. Petersburg with sailors with disabilities. Through working with one such sailor, Alder Allensworth, she realized that the area needed a program specifically designed to work with sailors who are disabled. Allensworth participated in the Paralympic Games in Australia in 2000 and told Nable about some special sailboats built by Australian, Chris Mitchell, that are perfect for people with disabilities. Calhoun contacted Mitchell, of Access Dinghies, and asked to make the newly forming group three boats, at between $5,000 and $6,000 apiece, and they will have raised the funds by the time they were complete. When the boats were finished, not only had they raised enough money for those three they had also raised enough to order three more sailboats. The organization now has 10 Access Dinghies and two electronic boats that are sailed with a joystick with ones chin. To sail to the right, one pushes the chin to the right. A chin push to the left moves the boat left, and pushing the chin forward puts the sails out. The group also has three Bravos, a safety boat, and a pontoon that has a wheelchair ramp and chair ties. They also have a sip and puff boat that one controls solely by breathing through straws, but Nable and Calhoun said they find the electronic boats preferable because they are more responsive. One veteran, Holly Crabtree, a U.S. Navy Corpsman, survived an explosion of an IED while on duty. She was shot in the head and is still recovering, but Cal-Independence and empowerment through sailing and white and in a way I think thats what this is all about. Its not about sailing. Calhoun agreed. The mainstream may have a powerboat life, Calhoun said, but there are so many that have to be sailors. They have to tack back and forth. All of a sudden, okay, I broke my leg or lost my leg and I have to come this way in life and learn how to change course and get over to this place. I have to come back with the wind. You cant sail into a headwind. When your health goes, you have to learn to sail. Both Nable and Calhoun agree that they feel they get more back than they give by being volunteers. It is an amazing feeling to see what an impact sailing makes on people, and they are happy to be able to be a part of it. Not that the volunteering is easy. They lug heavy boats to and from the water. They sweat. They deal with challenges. But they love it. And they are always in need for more volunteers. Not everyone has to sail, as there are always plenty of jobs to do from shore. But as a nonprofit that gives about 98 percent of the money it takes in through its minimal fees and lots of fundraising and donations, it always needs volunteers to help it keep going, Nable said. As the program moves forward and looks ahead to its next 10 years, Calhoun said he hopes the program can expand even more and have more locations throughout the greater Tampa Bay area. They also hope to secure ensigns of their own for the more independent sailors to use and race. Nable added that she hopes the group can participate in more regattas, both locally and outside the immediate area. To learn more or to volunteer, visit www.sailabilitygreatertampa bay.org or call 489-9468. houn said she refuses to say she will need long-term care. She is a regular with Sailability, and Nable said she is even sailing larger racing sailboats while getting treatment in Atlanta. Another Sailability client is 24 years old, autistic, non-communicative, a self-biter who wears diapers and would jump and scream at first, Calhoun said. It was his job to take her out sailing and keep her calm. It took a few times, but by the third time, she would get excited when she arrived at the center and was ready to sail. Her mom would say, shes having an autistic day, but what would happen is it just calms her, Nable said. Her mom says that when she went sailing, for like two weeks shed be fine. Shed be a lot calmer. Sailability often works with people from veterans groups, Shriners groups, and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch. Somehow this program touches the lives of many people in many different ways, Nable said. Nable understands how the program is empowering for disabled people because it was even for her. It empowers them. I mean, it empowers me that I got my butt in a boat, Nable said. We didnt have money or the thought to do this up north. But the confidence that it builds in everyone, whether theyre physically or mentally challenged or able bodied and able minded like me because I remember when I first started, all Id do is go in circles and the coach was like, What are you doing? Throughout the years, both Nable and Calhoun have realized that sailing is a good metaphor for life. Sailing is like life. You cant go from point A to point B, Nable said. You sort of have to zig zag or tack through it to get where you want to go.

Viewpoints 9A Leader, August 4, 2011Volunteers for this organization have proven time and time again that they are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity International has helped build 400,000 affordable houses and has served more than 2 million people around the world. Thats a remarkable accomplishment and shows the value of teamwork, pride in the community and volunteer labor. Essentially, Habitat for Humanity strives to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the world, building and rehabilitating simple houses. Besides having a down payment and making mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat houses and those of others sweat equity personified. Habitat houses are sold to partners families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County certainly has embraced the goals and standards set by Habitat International. The local organization has built 220 houses in Pinellas County and has funded 189 homes overseas. According to Habitat statistics, 117,874 county households pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing; 47,360 households in the county pay more than 50 percent of their income for housing. Habitat also reports that 17,615 housing units are substandard overcrowded, lacking heat, incomplete kitchen or plumbing facilities and about 68,000 people in the county are living at the poverty level. In other words, Habitat can always use extra hands. Construction volunteers help with almost every aspect of the building process, and no experience is necessary. The organization will provide the training and the tools. The summer job sites are open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the county. Volunteers also help with the stock and inventory and assisting customers at a home improvement outlet store. Donations are accepted by phone or mail. Habitat even accepts small, unused balances on gift cards. To find out more about donating, contact Habitat at 536-4755.

If you were a foreign terrorist intent on disrupting the lives and wellbeing of Americans, what methods would you choose? Obviously, blowing up an airliner would be the last thing youd consider. With all the patdowns and other security checks at our airports, youd probably be arrested before you got within 200 yards of the aircraft youd chosen. (Still, I hear disturbing stories of the many gaps in our airports security systems.) Besides, youd have little chance of gaining control of the aircraft and ramming it into a skyscraper, the way the 9/11 terrorists did. Flight decks are now locked from takeoff to touchdown. The most a bomb-toting terrorist could hope for would be the death of a few hundred passengers. That would be chump change. Terrorists can easily choose bigger and fatter targets. Ever since 9/11, Ive been waiting for al Qaeda to drop the other shoe on us by attacking a cruise ship. Every day, from various American ports, these pleasure vessels shove off, loaded with several thousands of passengers and crew members. Is every one of these people screened and searched as they prepare to board? If so, I havent heard about it. Just picture what would happen if one medium-sized bomb exploded below the water line at 2 a.m. as the ship steamed along a few hundred miles into the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico. It would make the Titanic disaster look like a weekend canoe mishap. Few actions would harm our way of life more than shutting off our electric power supply. Whether we like it or not, we are slaves to electricity. Without it we are paralyzed. And yet the nations power grid could be shut down by a few hundred trained and dedicated terrorists who simply drove up to a percentage of the power sub-stations that are scattered across the land on unguarded (except for wire fences and Keep Off! signs) sites. A bomb tossed over the sub-stations fence in any city could kill electricity for miles around. A coordinated attack at an agreedupon time at a hundred sites would render our vaunted power grids backup systems useless. America would go dark and stay that way for days or weeks. Damage and suffering would be incalculable. A recent news item out of Portland, Ore., suggests another tactic terrorists might use to cripple an important part of our daily lives. The technique: urinate in a citys water supply. You may have read about it. A 21-year-old man urinated into one of Portlands municipal reservoirs. The result: the city shut off all the water from the site, and discarded 7.8 million gallons that might have otherwise been used. The urinator, who was not arrested or charged, said he thought he was emptying his bladder into a sewage treatment plant. A water system official admitted that the city often finds dead animals in the city reservoirs, but does not let that disrupt water use. This is different, he said. Do you want to drink pee? A similar reaction by officials and citizens throughout our country could serve as a welcome mat to terrorists looking for a way to harm American cities. However, such an alarmed response by average Americans is unlikely. After all, hordes of beachgoers each year knowingly swim in water whose high coliform count is clearly posted for the public to see. Many of us are gamblers. We figure were invulnerable. So why worry about a little highly diluted and chemically treated urine flowing from our showerheads and kitchen taps? One of the most deadly imaginable terrorist attacks was set forth in the 1975 Thomas Harris novel Black Sunday, which was later made into a frightening movie of the same name. The terrorists plot was to arm a dirigible with thousands of steeltipped darts. The dirigible would then be exploded above a Super Bowl football game in Miami, showering the stadiums occupants with a deadly hail of darts. The plot was foiled, but no one called the destructive idea incredible or undoable. Those over-used adjectives went down the drain on 9/11. The type of assault we should fear most is the one that, if and when it comes, will shut down Americas (and perhaps the worlds) computer systems. On that fateful day, power grids and entire economies will collapse. Aircraft will no longer fly. Our military defense systems, here and abroad, will be rendered useless. You and I will see our personal computer screens go blank. Civilization as we know it will be rendered impotent. Chaos will reign. Is such a cyber attack possible? From what I read, yes. Is it likely? Lets hope not. Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com.Terrorism tactics waiting to be usedEvery political movement has its rhetorical strengths and weaknesses. The right can wax poetic about liberty and freedom, the left about the nobility of the poor and downtrodden. Nowhere do these differences come across more starkly than on the subject of taxation. (Note: This is not a column about the debt-ceiling negotiations. I would have put this warning up top, but I feared that immediately seeing the phrase debt-ceiling negotiations would cause many readers to face-plant into their breakfast tables or computer screens.) Ask almost any Republican politician, from lobster-roll-eating Northeastern Rinos (Republicans in name only) to flinty, leather-skinned Westerners with calluses on their trigger fingers, to explain why high taxes are bad, and theyll do a pretty good job of selling it. Ask almost any Democrat to explain why high taxes are bad, and you will get hit with the velvet fog, minus the velvet. First theyll explain that while they do favor increasing revenues, they dont favor higher taxes if by high taxes you mean taxes that are too high. They favor smart tax rates that are targeted (i.e., higher). Then theyll explain that they dont want to raise your taxes; they want to raise taxes on your boss, your employer and the companies that sell you gas, cars, cigarettes, food, clothes, electricity and various unnecessary surgical procedures. They leave out that those taxes get passed on to you. Then, theyll rush to safer territory: all of the wonderful things government does. Government, dont you know, is just the word we use for all the things we do together. So every time you cut a check to the IRS, an angel gets its wings. Not all of those arguments are necessarily wrong. My point is that theres no poetry to them. The sizzle doesnt sell the steak. Barack Obama has tried to explain that higher taxes are neighborly. That spreading the wealth around is noble. That taxation is a vital application of the biblical requirement to be our brothers keeper that the Bible doesnt require. George Lakoff, a prominent linguistic consultant to Democrats, has tried a different tack. He says that taxes are what you pay to be an American. ... Taxes are your dues you pay your dues to be an American. For all the money Lakoff gets for being original, its funny how hes just plagiarizing FDR, who said, Taxes, after all, are dues that we pay for the privileges of membership in an organized society. Some ideas wont die, however. So there was Faiz Shakir, editor-in-chief of ThinkProgress .org, expanding on this idea on C-SPAN the other day. We should change our conception of what taxes mean, Shakir sermonized. Most people who join country clubs, or gyms, or other exclusive entities in America, feel ... proud to pay that monthly dues, because they want to be part of that special privileged community in which they receive wonderful resources and benefits. Americans should feel that same kind of awe and respect for paying taxes ... we shouldnt have an aversion to paying some amount of taxes. Give him points for trying. But lets take out our red pens. First, one senses that when Shakir says some amount he means any amount. As for this idea that people should feel the same awe and respect for paying taxes as they do when they belong to a gym, Ive got to ask: What gym does this guy go to? The fundamental problem with marketing taxes as dues or fees is, well, theyre not dues or fees. Dues are voluntary. Fees can be withheld for bad service, and whatever awe and respect one feels comes not from paying the fee but from getting good value for it. Moreover, most exclusive entities dont charge wildly divergent rates to different customers based on their incomes. In fact, vast swaths of Americans dont pay the dues (income taxes) at all. They do pay the fees (sales and payroll taxes), but they get back more from government than they pay into it. And dont get me started on how illegal immigration fits this country club metaphor. The exclusive entity analogy actually supports not higher and more progressive income taxes, but a flat tax. Everybody pays X percent of their income. Everyone has the same share of skin in the game. In fairness, Republicans successfully sell their anti-tax message not because they have better orators or buy craftier linguists, but because taxpayers dont feel theyre getting a lot of value for their dollars, and most suspect they could feel the same awe and respect for half the price.Jonah Goldberg is editor-atlarge of National Review Online and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Now Ive got your voicemail code and Im eavesdropping on all your personal messages. Ha! BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Dr. Entwistle, the urologist. We got your tests back today and Id like to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. BEEP: Ha, Rupert, I heard that! Hugh Grant here again and, speaking on behalf of all the celebrities whose phones got hacked by your hacks, let me just say that I hope your prostate gland is the size of a croquet ball! BEEP: Rupert, this is Prime Minister David Cameron. I want to personally apologize for the inexcusable security lapse that allowed that impudent pie-thrower to smack you in the face the other day. (But bravo for Wendi, eh?) Listen, Rupe old boy, you understand that despite our close friendship and all the self-serving advice that youve given me since I took office, I must continue condemning your newspapers publicly every chance I get, in order to save my own political hide. Please know that I still consider you a dear chum ... whoa this line is secure, right?BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Jude Law. Yes, Jude Law the actor. You might recall that Im suing one of your papers for stealing my private phone messages. I just wanted to tell you how distressed I was to hear that your prostate apparently is now the size of a cantaloupe. Oh, and Hugh Grant says cheers. BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is the executive assistant to Prime Minister David Cameron. The PM wanted me to inform you that it wasnt he who left a somewhat careless message on your phone a few minutes ago, but rather a clever imposter who sounded exactly like him. The Prime Minister would greatly appreciate it if you erased the previous message as soon as possible, and this one as well. Thank you. BEEP: This is a recorded message from the Downing Street Pharmacy. Your prescription for Cialis is ready to be picked up. BEEP: Cialis! Rupert, you horndog! Eighty years old and still rattling the headboards. Its Hugh Grant again. Isnt this fun? BEEP: Rupert, its Wendi. Oh my God, they want me to be on The View! Can you believe this? Ill need the jet, darling, the big one. See you back in New York! BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, its Jude Law again. I took the liberty of dropping by the Downing Street Pharmacy and getting your Cialis pills, which I intend to leave at the news desk of the Sunday Mirror, one of your archrival papers. I also informed the druggist that your prostate was now as big as a Frisbee, and he highly recommended Flomax. You should check it out. BEEP: Rupert, this is Prince Charles. Because of my familys sad firsthand experience with tabloid phone-hacking, an actor acquaintance recently provided me with the code to your voicemail hope its not a bother. Camilla and I watched the hearings the other day and were impressed by the right cross thrown by your wife at the pie-thrower. Also wanted to let you know that I, too, have heard good things about Flomax. BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Scotland Yard calling. We have reason to suspect that your private telephone numbers have been compromised just kidding, Rupester! This is Hugh, again. Im at Heathrow, where your lovely wife has kindly offered me a lift to New York on your jet. Small world, eh? BEEP: Rupert, its Wendi. Youll never guess who I just bumped into at the airport and hes even more handsome in person than he is in the movies! Call you later, darling.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesLeader Section B August 4, 2011Visit www.TBNweekly.com Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Rise of the Planet of the ApesGenre: Action, adventure and science fiction Cast: James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, Andy Serkis, Tyler Labine and David Hewlett Director: Rupert Wyatt Rated: PG-13 Rise of the Planet of the Apes is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a blend of science fiction and science fact, where mans own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.The Change-UpGenre: Comedy Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann Director: David Dobkin Rated: R Growing up together, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed theyve slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitchs stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Daves worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each others bodies and proceed to freak out. Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each others lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. Further complicating matters are Daves sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitchs estranged father (Alan Arkin). With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoidOpening this weekendJames Franco, Andy Serkis star in Rise of the Planet of the Apes Photo courtesy of WETA/TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATIONThe groundbreaking work of visual effects house Weta Digital allows audiences to emotionally engage with a lead character, a chimpanzee named Caesar, in the Twentieth Century Fox film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. completely destroying each others lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.The following will open in limited release.

With Magic Trip, Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood were given unprecedented access to this raw footage by the Kesey family. They worked with the Film Foundation, HISTORY and the UCLA Film Archives to restore over 100 hours of film and audiotape, and have shaped an invaluable document of this extraordinary piece of American history.The WhistleblowerGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Rachel Weisz, Vanessa Redgrave, David Strathaim, Monica Bellucci and Nikolaj Lie Kaas Director: Larissa Kondracki Rated: R Inspired by actual events, Kathy (Rachel Weisz) is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia.

Tickets range from $35 to $59.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Adams has become one of the worlds most highly acclaimed musicians, boasting a successful career spanning more than three decades. Adams spends more than 150 days a year on the road playing rock n roll favorites to sold out audiences on six continents. To many, Adams is best known for 1983s Cuts Like a Knife album, which included the singles Cuts Like a Knife, Straight From the Heart and This Time. That breakout album, along with the follow-up Reckless, represents only a fraction of this Canadian rockers creative output over the last 36 years. Adams career actually started several years earlier. In the mid1970s, Adams still in his teens joined the glam rock band Sweeney Todd. The band had already scored a No. 1 hit in Canada and had won a Juno Award. With Adams as their new vocalist, Sweeney Todd released a second album, If Wishes Were Horses. When that album failed to achieve the same success as its predecessor, Adams left the band. Adams was 18 years old when, in 1978, he partnered with Jim Vallance and recorded a handful of demos which eventually ended up at A&M Records. Recorded in Toronto, Adams self-titled debut album dropped in February 1980, co-produced by Adams and Vallance. The album was certified gold in Canada in 1986. His second album, You Want It You Got It, was released in 1981 and included the single Lonely Nights which got significant FM airplay. Then came Cuts Like a Knife, and Adams suddenly found widespread recognition, growing popularity and increasing sales. Straight from the Heart proved to be the albums most successful song, reaching No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The title track, meanwhile, charted at No. 15. Music videos were produced for the singles from the album, playing regularly on the then two-year-old MTV and making Adams that much more recognizable. In 1984, Adams followed up with Reckless which spawned no less than six singles, including Run to You, Somebody, Heaven, Summer of , One Night Love Affair and Its Only Love. All six singles made the top 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, with two hitting No. 1. Adams fifth studio album, Into the Fire, was released in 1987. It produced the singles Heat of the Night, Hearts on Fire, Victim of Love, Only the Strong Survive, Into the Fire and Another Day. In 1991, Adams released Waking Up the Neighbors which would become his best selling album. The album included the song (Everything I Do) I Do It for You, which also was featured on the soundtrack for the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in the same year. This song spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television.
