Photo by AMANDA SEBASTIANOThe merry-go-round is the most popular attraction at the park.Central Park Playground gets a good workout By TOM GERMONDLARGO City Commissioner Robert Murray will retain Seat 2 for a three-year term; nobody qualified to run against him in the Nov. 8 election. In the race for Seat 1, incumbent Mary Black will face Michael Smith. Smith is a senior library assistant at the Pinellas Park Public Library. He has served on the citys Historic Preservation Advisory Committee. Black, a former city clerk of Belleair Beach, was first elected to the City Commission in March 1975 and has served several terms since then. She also has served on the city Planning Board and Board of Adjustment. Murray was appointed to Seat 2 in May 2008, to fill the unexpired term of Andrew Guyette. A 33-year resident of Largo, Murray retired from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office after 32 years as a senior flight mechanic. The qualification period for the election ran from Aug. 1 to Aug. 15. This election will be the citys last stand-alone election and the last one for three-year terms. Beginning in 2012, elections will be held only in the even years and all seats will be for four-year terms. Citizen says city worker shopped while on duty By TOM GERMONDLARGO A resident offered $1,000 in cash as a bond to back up his complaint against a city employee. Holding the money in his hand at the podium in the City Commission chambers Aug. 16, Marc Faucher said that on July 15 he witnessed a code enforcement officer shopping at Home Depot take away her purchases in a city truck. The individual was in the store for a long time and bought a lot of items, he said. Faucher claimed that the purchases were picked up by a surveillance camera in the store. It was reported to the city managers office and their response was less than I recall satisfactory, he said. He asked for a formal investigation of why the code enforcement officer was shopping during work hours. Thats not acceptable, especially not in these times when tying to cut the budget, Faucher said. He asked to have the store video tape reviewed. I will take a lie detector test by the FBI or anyone else that what Im saying is true, he said. If I dont pass the test, this money is to be donated to the charity of the mayors choice. City Manager Mac Craig said at this point he has taken the ladys word that she gave two of her bosses that she didnt buy anything and didnt put anything in her truck. If she did and it can be proven, she will be disciplined, he said. He said if the commission wants city officials to investigate the matter, he will do so. Commissioner Mary Black said she thinks somebody from the city should view the tapes and end the discussion on whether the employee made purchases and put them in a vehicle while on city time. I dont want to call our residents a liar any more than Mr. Craig would want to call his employee a liar. So I do think we need to put the matter to rest by looking into it, she said. Mayor Pat Gerard said she thinks its worth asking Home Depot if the store has the tape, and if not, the issue is at rest. Craig said he would make the request.

Michael Smith Mary Black Robert MurrayMurray unopposed; 2 qualify for Seat 1 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys future depends on improving its transportation system, so says local officials involved in an ongoing Transit Alternatives Analysis. Officials talked about the latest happenings and answered questions about transit plans Aug. 10 during a second eTownHall: Transit Alternatives for a Faster Stronger Pinellas. Bob Clifford, executive director of Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, moderated the event. Panelists included R.B. Johnson, board chairman of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and mayor of Indian Rocks Beach; Brad Miller, chief executive officer for PSTA; Ken Welch, PSTA board member and Pinellas County Commissioner; and Brian Smith, Metropolitan Planning Organization executive director and Pinellas County Planning Department director. The eTownHall blog opened Aug. 8, allowing residents to post questions ahead of the Aug. 10 live event. According to data collected by Pinellas County Communications, 464 blog readers took part, submitting 274 blog comments. The phone lines also were open during the event, which could be watched on the countys website and PCC-TV. Staff called 40,000 residents and 4,639 people participated via the phone.

For more information on the analysis, visit www.pinellasontrack.com.What the panelist saidWelch started things off by talking about the ongoing analysis of different ways to make it easier for county residents to get where they need to go without the use of personal vehicles. He also talked about the many stakeholders involved, most importantly county residents, who need to work together to make important decisions for the future. We need to build a system for the next 25 years, not just for us, but for our children, he said. He said the system needed to be multimodal and include the big picture. He made comparisons to a comprehensive education system, saying having colleges and places of higher education was good, but we must have K-12 to make it work. Panelists talked about premium services, See TRANSPORTATION, page 4A By AMANDA SEBASTIANOLARGO About four months after completion of a $650,000 remodeling project, families are still pouring through the gates of the Central Park playground to enjoy the new amenities from opening to closing time. At 6 p.m., several children were chasing each other around the playground, while benches full of parents watched nearby. This scene is the same whether its the early morning crowd, or the last families of the night. One of the most notable and more recent changes, a static-free turf that feels like backyard grass, was finished being installed last week. The patent just went through for the turf last week and was an addition that was well worth the money, said Largo Parks Superintendent Greg Brown. The instillation of the faux grass at the park is the first in the world. A frequenter to the new playground, Ashley Sabo, said the soft, green ground under her feet is her favorite addition, because it doesnt hurt when you slip and fall, or come down a slide too fast and land on it. Replacing the concrete for pseudo grass has lessened the amount of cut up legs and other accidents, at least between Sabo and her friends. There have been little to no malfunctions with the equipment so far, except for replacing the turf around the merry-goround. The measurements were off during the build, and the height wasnt where it needed to be. Needing more benches was See PLAYGROUND, page 4A

The event scheduled on Saturday, Aug. 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is in conjunction with National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators Project Drug Drop, the second annual Florida Statewide Drug Take Back Event. The event is an opportunity for citizens to safely discard unused or expired prescription medications and is a multi-agency effort aimed at addressing the problem of prescription drug abuse and keeping a clean environment. Citizens may simply stop by during the designated times and drop off their medications for safe collection and disposal. Operation Medicine Cabinet events to date (two in 2009; two in 2010; and one in 2011); along with OMCs permanent drop-off containers at the sheriffs administration building and north district station have collected more than 4,300 pounds of medications. Eight law enforcement agencies are participating in the Aug. 27 event, including the Sheriffs Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Clearwater Police Department, Largo Police Department, St. Pete Beach Police Department, Pinellas Park Police Department, Tarpon Springs Police Department and Treasure Island Police Department are participating in the effort. The drop-off sites are located at various Walgreens and Sweetbays throughout the county; and at the Dolphin Village Shopping Center and Seminole Mall. The effort is designed to educate the public and raise awareness about the problem of prescription drugs abuse. The problem has reached epidemic proportions, with prescription drugs as the No. 1 abused drug in the United States, surpassing all other illicit drugs. Please be aware that no biohazards or needles will be accepted and that the program is intended for private citizens of Pinellas County and not for commercial use. As a reminder, drop off sites are not located inside the stores but in the parking lot areas. Residents should look for a law enforcement presence at each of the selected drop-off sites. Also, please be aware that the drop-off containers at the sheriffs office in Largo and north district station in Dunedin will be temporarily closed during the countywide event.Briefs
4A Leader, August 18, 2011 Photo by AMANDA SEBASTIANOCorbin Tripp enjoys the Largo Central Park playground Aug. 6. PLAYGROUND, from page 1Aone of the only requests Brown heard often, so a few more were added throughout the playground area for parents to sit while their children played. Playground visitors have been coming from all over Florida, Brown said, and arent just the same Largo residents that live down the street. In fact, the majority of them is from surrounding cities or sometimes travels even farther to see the new space. We tracked the amount of people coming for one month, and it came out to about 55,000; thats phenomenal, Brown said. I sometimes have complaints that its too busy here. The crowds are playing longer too, arriving promptly when the park opens at 8:30 a.m. and others not leaving until closing time at 10:30 p.m. If the cleaning doesnt get done before the park opens up at 8:30 a.m., its too late for the rest of the day because people are already out there using the equipment, and park staff would literally be cleaning around them, Brown said. Another addition thats on the way is the LED screen that will be positioned near the entrance of the playground. It will display upcoming events and show video from the city of Largo website. Vandalism has gone down as well since the rebuild, possibly because of the high amount of families and people always at the park now as opposed to before, Brown said. Who wants to spray paint and ruin things with 20 moms watching you? Brown said. Local resident Dave Tripp and his 3-year-old son, Corbin, love the new look and have been coming twice the amount of time that they went to the old playground. Everything is better about this park as opposed to the old one, he said. Theres no comparison, he said. Shortly before the renovation, Tripp started taking his son to play at Walsingham Park because it was closer to his home, and he didnt think the old park was worth the drive. But now, the family visits the playground several times a week. The train that circles the park is a huge attraction for new visitors as well, something that cant be found at many other playgrounds, Brown said. Social media and other technology programs, such as the Playgrounds app on the iPhone, may be contributors to the increase in visitors as well. Browns only regret is that he didnt put a power generator on the merry-go-round, one of the most highly used attractions on the playground. The only recommendation, besides adding more benches, came from 12-year-old Sarah Beyer. She wants to see safety belts added to the merry-goround, because of the amount of children that spin too fast and are falling off. On the old playground, one child fell off and bumped his head pretty hard, she said. The comments have been really positive, better than we ever could have dreamed of, Brown said. We spent a lot of money, but we did it right. TRANSPORTATION, from page 1Asuch as light-rail and bus rapid transit, as well as needed improvements for existing, more traditional bus and trolley services. Johnson spoke next, revealing some of the strategies under consideration, including connecting downtown Clearwater, the Gateway area, downtown St. Petersburg and eventually Tampa. He said those routes needed a premium services, bus rapid transit, aka BRT, or light rail. He said decisions needed to be made about station locations and other details, which require public input. Were trying to figure out what it (transit system) would look like and what residents want, he said. Miller, who began his job at PSTA about a month ago, talked about his experience with other transportation projects, including light rail in Charlotte, N.C., a connector rail in Washington, D.C., and an express bus system in Des Moines, Iowa. He said those projects transformed the areas where they were constructed. He said investments in transportation were rewarded with development and jobs. Smith also talked about the big picture. He said land uses and transportation were tied together. He said it was important to involve the public when talking about changes to land use that might come from future changes to transportation. He said the construction of transit stations would bring development and jobs to the areas where they were located. He said the countys future population growth most likely would be along transportation corridors and the stations. Welch said transit-oriented development in a built out county like Pinellas would require planning to achieve smart and directed growth. Transit corridors will determine where our growth will be, Welch said.Proposed routes and development areasPreliminary plans show a route beginning in downtown Clearwater, where officials propose two station locations. The route then follows either the CSX freight corridor west of Missouri Avenue or Missouri Avenue itself to East and West Bay drives in Largo along which four station locations are proposed. East Bay Drive becomes Roosevelt Boulevard, aka State Road 686, and the route continues on Roosevelt to Ulmerton Road, where one station is proposed, then back on to Roosevelt and another proposed station. At that point, the route heads south on Interstate 275 to another possible station location. Two design options are proposed for the next leg of the corridor continuing down I-275 or jogging over to 28th Street North. The I-275 route would cross Gandy Boulevard and head straight to downtown St. Petersburg. This route includes two station locations. If the route takes the jog to 28th Street North and another station location, it would wind through the Gateway area and down Gandy Boulevard and U.S. 19 to another proposed location before continuing on U.S. 19, down to 62nd Avenue North, back to I-275 and on to downtown St. Petersburg. Three station locations are proposed in downtown St. Petersburg between Fourth Street North and 16th Street North. Eighteen station locations are shown on the proposed corridor map, including two in Tampa for the future connection via the Howard Frankland Bridge. Other routes go to St. Pete Beach as well as northern areas of Pinellas. For more information, visit www.pinellasontrack.com.Questions from the publicThe first question from the public was why officials werent considering short-term projects before tackling light rail or commuter bus service. Johnson said improvements were ongoing at PSTA, but were hampered by declining revenue. Were planning for better service, more frequent stops, late night service, routes to the airport, he said. But that means more expense, more bus drivers, more fuel. He said the countys transportation system needed to include more express services between Clearwater, Gateway, St. Petersburg and Tampa. But we need money, he said. Miller said plans called for making improvements to current services while continuing development of premium transportation options. He said some of the small initiatives going on at PSTA included expanded trolley service to St. Pete Beach and the new trolley route to Tarpon Springs. Investment in premium services is for our children, he said. It takes that long. Welch said the significant declines in ad valorem revenue for PSTA was making it difficult to keep the buses up and running, despite cutting some services and raising fares. He said the future of transportation in Pinellas was still uncertain. It might not be rail, he said. It could be transit buses or it could be neither. This analysis is a process to help answer that question. Another person asked why the focus seemed to be on connecting St. Petersburg to Tampa and not to points north of Clearwater. Another wanted to know about areas such as Seminole and Largo. A third asked about Tarpon Springs. Smith said the needs of areas in north Pinellas were being considered even if they werent on the map of proposed fixed station locations. Johnson pointed out another route under consideration that follows the CSX freight corridor and bisects the heart of Pinellas south of West Bay Drive. It doesnt pass through Seminole, he said. He said improvements in bus frequency and linking services were on the table for areas outside the primary corridor. Miller talked about implementation of BRT in Eugene, Ore. He said the buses followed a guideway area of the street so no matter the traffic, the bus maintains a constant speed. The buses have multiple doors that open at the station, like a train, he said. People pay their fares at the station, which makes it faster because people wont be digging for change to pay at the entrance door. Its an efficient, upgraded system, he said. Clifford talked about the great success enjoyed by the city of Charlotte after implementing a light rail system in 2007. He said the bus system had been enhanced and changed to feed people to and from the station. Bus ridership went up after the rail started running, he said.Poll questionsTwo poll questions were asked of the public during the event, which could be answered via the phone or through the blog. Viewers and listeners were asked what level of investment Pinellas should make in the future of transit: 77 percent said more than is currently being invested, 7 percent said the same as current spending, and 17 percent thought less money should be spent. Those participating in the eTownHall also were asked what they thought was the right transit choice for Pinellas: 52 percent said rail, 31 percent said fast bus, 14 percent said to limit the choice to the services currently offered and 3 percent said to spend less.Community decision and supportMiller said BRT was usually easier and less costly to implement, but rail could be less expensive to operate. However, the lack of available roadway lanes in Pinellas might change the cost scenario. He said all the strategies had to be considered along with future maintenance and operations. Were going to need revenue to make things happen, Miller said. We still have a lot of detailed work to be done. He estimated it would be at least 10 years to get trains running, shorter time for BRT and even less for smaller improvements to current services if money is available. Welch said regardless of what the future of Pinellas County transit services would be, it must be a community decision so everyone will be onboard when officials go to referendum asking people to approve a funding source. Most of the panel members admitted they dont use the bus to commute to work because of the time it takes. Welch said his niece recently rode the bus from St. Petersburg to the Epicenter in Largo and it took her 1 1/2 hours. Far too long, he said. Welch said some funding for transportation improvements could come from federal and state sources; however, Johnson said, significant local dollars were needed. The feds can help us, but they expect the local area to step up to the plate for operating costs, Johnson said. Smith said the private sector also would be asked to help fund the system, especially considering the benefit to developers and businesses. Johnson said the future of the countys transportation was a local decision. Its not a decision government makes, he said. He said it must be approved by the voters and for that to happen everyone had to see the benefits. Welch pointed out that the system had to be multi-modal, including everything from walking, biking, personal vehicles, vans, trolleys, buses and possibly trains. All that will be part of the plan we present to voters, Welch said.Map courtesy of TBARTAThis map shows the station locations and proposed routes officials are asking the public to consider for the countys future transit system.Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSPanelists of the Aug. 10 eTownHall: Transit Alternatives for a Stronger, Faster Pinellas discuss transportation issues.

The Largo Police Departments Problem-oriented police unit along with the Clearwater Police Departments West District Anti-Crime Team conducted a combination plain clothes and uniform detail focusing on female prostitutes working in the northwest section of Largo, and the Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and North Fort Harrison Avenue sections of Clearwater. The detail consisted of officers from each agency working in an undercover capacity contacting female subjects who appeared to be loitering for the purposes of prostitution. After a prostitution case was secured, uniform officers from each agency would approach the undercover officers and make the physical arrest of the suspect. The focus of the detail was to target areas that have a history of prostitution complaints from citizens and business owners in the respective areas. The specific areas targeted also have a long history of prostitution arrests by each individual agency. Three women were arrested in Clearwater Police jurisdiction, two subjects were arrested in Largo Police jurisdiction, and one subject arrested directly on the border of the two agencies. The women were between 21 and 51 years old.Treasure Island man injured in shootingTREASURE ISLAND Police are investigating a shooting that took place in the early morning hours Aug. 15 in the 11000 block of First Street East. According to a police report, at about 1:02 a.m., officers responded to a residence on the Isle of Palms after a person called 911 to report another person had been shot. Upon arrival, police said resident Jeremy Millspaugh was lying on the ground with an apparent gunshot wound to the pelvis. A preliminary investigation revealed several residents of an apartment complex were involved in ongoing disputes that resulted in the Monday morning incident. One of the residents allegedly threatened several others with a knife. During the encounter, another resident fired several shots from a .38-caliber handgun in self-defense, police said. One of the gunshots struck Millspaugh, causing non-life-threatening injuries. Millspaugh was transported to Bayfront Medical Center.Three arrested for misuse of prescription drugsA Palm Harbor X-ray technician, a St. Petersburg physicians assistant and a St. Petersburg woman who works at a dentist office were arrested Aug. 1112 in connection with misuse of prescription drugs. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, the three arrests are separate and unrelated cases. Robert Cales, 40, was arrested Aug. 12 for two counts of obtaining a controlled substance hydrocodone by fraud. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater on the day of his arrest after paying a $4,000 cash bond. Detectives said they received information Aug. 5 that Cales wrote a fraudulent prescription for hydrocodone and had attempted to have it filled at a local pharmacy. The investigation also revealed that Cales had also written a prescription for the same medication during the month of June 2011; and had it filled. Detectives say Cales used his position as an X-ray technician to obtain prescriptions from his employer. Cales, who was cooperative during the interview with detectives and during the arrest, is not authorized to write prescriptions. Vanessa Yoder Jewell, 55, was arrested on Aug. 11 for delivery of a controlled substance to two people. She was released from jail on Aug. 12 on a surety bond of $10,000. Detectives began their investigation of Jewell on Aug. 2 after receiving a tip that Jewell, had provided two adult associates with several oxycodone pills. During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Jewell was employed as a physicians assistant at a local hospital. Detectives determined that the pills were delivered off the hospital property at an undisclosed location in June. Detectives say Jewell, who was reportedly uncooperative during the interview and arrest, is not authorized to provide narcotics. Dana Sutton, 34, aka Dana Michelle Burns, was arrested Aug. 12, for one count of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. She was released from jail Aug. 12 on a surety bond of $2,000. Detectives said that Sutton attempted to pass a fraudulent prescription at a local pharmacy on July 25. Pharmacy personnel identified the prescription as fraudulent and notified law enforcement. Through their investigation, detectives determined that Sutton had been obtaining controlled substances by fraud from this same pharmacy since June of 2010. It was further determined that Sutton worked for a pediatric dental office and had used her position to obtain the prescription, which she subsequently filled out and passed at the pharmacy. Sutton, who was cooperative during an interview and her arrest, is not authorized to write prescriptions.Newspaper vendor carjacked at gunpointPINELLAS PARK Police are looking for two black males wanted in connection with a Aug. 13 robbery of a St. Petersburg Times newspaper vendor. According to a report posted on Pinellas Park Polices Facebook page, Susan Olson, 37, of Tampa was placing newspapers in a newspaper vending machine at the intersection of Lake Boulevard and 43rd Street North about 2:30 a.m., when two men armed with handguns pulled up in a silver Kia Spectra. One of the men pointed a handgun at Olsons face and demanded her car and personal items. The suspects then fled in Olsons silver 1988 Isuzu Rodeo, Florida license plate, 256 HRB. Olson was able to flag down another citizen for a ride and, a short distance away, she found an officer and reported the crime. The silver Kia Spectra was found near the scene of the crime. Investigating officers checked the license tag and found that the Kia had been taken during an armed carjacking in St. Petersburg on Aug. 10. The suspects are described as two black males, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Both had on dark clothing, including short sleeve shirts and ski masks. One is described as having light colored skin. They were last seen west on Lake Boulevard in Olsons Isuzu. Anyone who spots the stolen car is asked to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information on who the suspects may be, or information that may solve this crime, are asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Pinellas at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), or www.crime stoppersofpinellas.org, to be eligible for a cash reward and maintain their anonymity.Chop shop operator arrestedCLEARWATER A Clearwater man was arrested Aug. 9 for allegedly operating a chop shop and for grand theft auto, according to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report. Deputies responded to a LoJack vehicle theft recovery system hit on a stolen vehicle out of Hillsborough County, the report said. The hit led them to an industrial park at 1974 Sherwood St. in Clearwater. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with Robert P. Evans, 50, and were allowed into Unit F, where they found several vehicles in different stages of being dismantled, the report said. Arson and auto theft unit detectives responded to the scene, and according to detectives, so far five vehicles have been identified and confirmed as being stolen, the report said. The vehicles are all late model Ford Mustangs and had been reported stolen out of various jurisdictions to include the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, Clearwater Police Department, and Pinellas Park Police Department. The vehicles had been stolen within the last two years. Detectives say the vehicle stolen from the Sheriffs Office jurisdiction was stolen from Lokey Nissan in Clearwater. The second grand theft auto charge stems from the hit on the vehicle stolen from Hillsborough County. Evans is charged with operating a chop shop, four counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $25,500 bond. Additional charges are forthcoming, the report said, and the investigation continues.

Pinellas County commissioners approved another amendment with the Southwest Florida Water Management District Aug. 9 to authorize more funding for the Lake Seminole watershed stormwater reduction project. According to staff notes, the commission approved a funding agreement with SWFWMD on April 16, 2002, for the design, permitting and construction management of five alum treatment systems for Lake Seminole, a treatment facility and a diversion structure for the bypass canal. On June 28, 2005, an amendment was approved to divide the project into two phases and extend the agreement period. On Aug. 5, 2008, the commission approved a second amendment to increase the project budget due to increased construction costs, allow for phase 2 construction and to extend again the agreement period. The third amendment, approved Aug. 9, provides additional funding for phase 2, increasing the project funding by just over $2.6 million. It also extends the agreement period to Dec. 31, 2014 and revises the project schedule due to permitting and construction design revisions that resulted in construction delays and higher costs. The total cost of the project is nearly $12 million. Penny for Pinellas sales tax is providing just over $4 million. The rest of the money is coming from grants, including $1.8 million from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; $5 million from SWFWMD and $781,000 from the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection. Phase 1 of the project is scheduled for completion on Nov. 30, 2012. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin on May 1, 2013. In other business, the commission: Approved a change order to the final negotiated contract for implementation of services of the Oracle E-Business Suite with Applications Software Technology Corp., Naperville, Ill. The change order extends the go-live dates, which were scheduled for July 1, for several county departments. The implementation will now be done in three phases with go-live dates of Sept. 6, Oct. 31 and Nov. 3. The additional cost is $486,348, which will be paid from the OPUS project budget contingency fund. The total contract cost for the project is $7.9 million. Approved a memorandum of understanding with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office for fuel services. Staff estimates savings from the agencies combined purchasing will be $31,000. Long-term savings estimates are placed at $58,000 due to closing the sheriffs refueling station in north county. Staff estimates cost of consolidation will be $25,000. Approved an interlocal agreement with the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport for law enforcement services. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office has provided the service at the airport since 1998. The agreement is effective for one year, through Sept. 30, 2012, with the intent to renew on an annual basis going forward. The cost is almost $1,300 more than the last agreement. Payment for the service will come from the Airport operating budget. Photo by BOB McCLUREA pair of white Ibis forages for water July 29 in the boat ramp parking lot at Lake Seminole Park.

It also approved the expenditure of up to $19,400 to lease three police vehicles that put out one horsepower and can go 18 miles on a bale of hay. The Police Department is continually exploring mechanisms to enhance its community outreach abilities and increase the number and types of interactions with our citizens, as well as visitors to our community, a police memo to the council said. The Police Department intends to create a mounted patrol unit, which will use horses to participate in community engagement and education, public relations activities, searches for lost persons, and serve as a visual deterrent to criminal activity. Three horses named Smokey, Ruby and Garnet will be leased from Nancy Jones Miller and Deborah Ann Storey for three years. Much of the $15,000 cost of the lease is a contingency deposit in case the horses get hurt, and will be refunded it they are not injured. The equipment and start-up costs will total $4,400, and all the costs will come from forfeiture funds. There will be no direct impact to the Police Departments current or future operating budgets as a result of the creation of the mounted patrol unit within the police department, the police memo said. Much of the horses time will be spent patrolling the heavily wooded Lake Chautauqua Park. For years, even before the city acquired the land and turned it into a park, there have been complaints of men hanging out in that area to have sex with each other. Recently, undercover cops arrested three men there and charged them with illicit sexual activity. Im not pulling any officers off the road to do this, police Chief Tony Holloway told the City Council. Were using volunteers. Miller, who is a reserve officer, and Storey, a police volunteer, will be the first members of the Mounted Patrol Unit. Holloway said that he had considered using all-terrain vehicles instead of horses, but they cost $8,000 apiece and would be less effective than horses in patrolling the park. If (the people doing sexual acts) walked in there, the police can walk in there and get them, without horses or ATVs, said Joe Paige, a former City Council candidate and longtime thorn in the side of the council. It seems that the city is getting into an area it doesnt need to get into. Paige added that both horses and ATVs are a needless expense and, like many city programs, the mounted patrol unit is likely to grow. But Chief Holloway denied that. Were not looking to expand this program in any way, Holloway said. Mayor Frank Hibbard was uncomfortable with a lease that made its cost contingent upon whether or not the horses get injured. Maybe we can use ATVs instead, Hibbard said. They cant get injured, and I think they can go anywhere horses can. But his colleagues outvoted him 4 to 1 and approved the lease. Lester R. DaileyIRB gateway to get faceliftINDIAN ROCKS BEACH The city is soon going to look a lot prettier to people who enter from the Walsingham Bridge. The city is going to buy an old abandoned house and land at 442 Gulf Blvd. and make the area more attractive. The house, owned by Geraldine Schmidt, has been vacant for years and the city has targeted the property as a perfect spot for beautification, and a better first impression for people as they arrive in the city. The property is located on Gulf Boulevard facing directly into the traffic entering the community from Walsingham Road. Schmidt has agreed to sell the parcel to the city for $200,000. City Manager Chuck Coward says the house will be demolished before the end of the year, but it will be another year before all the work is completed. We havent done any planning or design work yet, he said. That will take some time, and then the actual work can be done. Mayor R.B. Johnson said it was a shame the house had to be destroyed. He said the house was built in 1916, but it has been empty for so long it has fallen into disrepair and it has to go. Resident Patti Muneio was happy with the decision to buy the property and spruce it up. It will be nice to have an attractive entranceway to the city, she said. Im pleased with it. The city will take possession of the property at the end of the month. Brian GoffMB density increase proposed as hotel lureMADEIRA BEACH A hotel being planned for American Legion Drive may depend on a change in the citys land code to allow greater density (more units per acre). Being proposed is the addition of a new Resort Facility High land use category that would increase units permitted from 45 to 75 on property under one acre, from 60 to 100 on one to three acres, and 75 to 125 on land exceeding three acres. Housh Ghovaee of Northside Engineering, who is developing the property, said at the Aug. 3 commission workshop that current density restrictions encourage condo development at the expense of hotels. Creation of the new land use category could bring a lot of hotels and tourism activities to the city, he said. The city is already considering a law that allows transfer of densities from one property to another. Isnt that enough? Mayor Travis Palladeno asked. The transfer process requires a lot of paperwork and recordkeeping, Ghovaee responded. That slows down the progress, he said. (The developer) spends a lot of money, has to go before the (planning) board, and then can be denied. The Resort Facility High land use category will spell out the requirements so everybody knows what they need going in, and (the developer) does not take a risk, Ghovaee said. The change would benefit not only his proposed hotel development, he said, but spur other hotel projects as well. Once approved, Resort Facility High (zoning) is going to bring a lot of business, and a lot of money, into the city, Ghovaee said. The proposed land use change is consistent with the countys thinking, Pinellas Planning Council Interim Director Michael Crawford told the commission. Crawford said density regulations along the beaches have been favorable to condo development rather than hotels. Since 2001, over 5,000 hotel rooms have been lost throughout the county, he said. The County Commission encourages enhanced development standards for hotels, Crawford said. Commission members expressed support for more hotels, but were skeptical of the proposed density changes. Commissioner Terry Lister said he is open to new development, but I dont want to see a lot of Sand Key, 20 or 30 stories, in Madeira Beach. Lister proposed capping the units allowed at 80 per acre, then allowing an extra 10 or 20 room bonus if the developer agrees to do amenities such as landscaping or building upgrades. Thats a better approach, Palladeno said. Commissioner Robin Vander Velde said she was hesitant to change the land use requirements without the advice of a city planner. The city has been looking for a new planner to replace departed community development director Paula Cohen. Also, Vander Velde said she is unsure how the residents would react to the proposed density increases. She referred to a motel on Gulf Boulevard that is planning a replacement structure that meets current requirements. The neighbors are complaining about that, she said. What will they say to this? she said. Former Commissioner Steve Kochick agreed a city planner is needed. If you let developers have the say without a planner, Madeira Beach is going to get ugly developments, he said. But he added, We desperately want the hotels. The commission will address the subject again in connection with the ordinance that was drafted earlier this year, then tabled, that would allow for the transfer of density rights. Wayne AyersRedington Beach to hold budget hearingREDINGTON BEACH The budget for the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, was discussed again. The first public budget hearing is Sept. 8 and the final budget hearing is Sept. 22. The tentative millage rate, 1.94, will be the same as this years rate. The commission reviewed the budget for town employee compensation and benefits. The commission decided with the new lower cost health care plan to no longer require employee contributions toward premium costs at least for the current fiscal year. Since employees no longer have to contribute to the premium costs, this would save the employees money. The commission may eliminate the proposed 1 percent employee salary increase due to the money saved by employees for health care costs. If we dont renew (the health care deductions next fiscal year) this would be a de facto raise for each of the employees. At the last meeting we agreed to a 1 percent pay increase. Plus, we added to the Christmas bonus. I think we ought to consider what we want to do, said Commissioner Mark Deighton. The commission will review town employee compensation at an upcoming meeting. In other matters: The commission renewed a pair of agreements. Waster Services of Florida will continue to provide garbage and recycling services for the next three years. Pinellas County will continue to maintain the towns traffic lights. The commission discussed remembrances for the upcoming 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. The town will create a press release reminding people of the towns Twin Towers memorial. The commission did not want to plan a formal celebration that could conflict with Madeira Beachs opening of its new Sept. 11 memorial. Commissioners discussed that remembering Sept. 11 can also be a personal matter. To me its a very personal thing. I think we should put something out there that (the Twin Towers Memorial) is here and remember its here, said Commissioner Tom Dorgan. The commission discussed having Vice Mayor Fred Steiermann work with the towns public works director to create and schedule the towns annual maintenance projects. Melissa LattmanAround PInellas

Not valid with any other offer.Terra NovaINSURANCEAgency, LLCwww.TerraNovaInsurance.net By JULIANA A. TORRESPINELLAS PARK By Sept. 11 of this year, Tracey Schofield hopes to see a 25-foot-diameter memorial, made up of three flagpoles, a 900-pound granite monument and about 1,500 bricks, completed at Pinellas Park High School. The somewhat-rushed, grassroots project will memorialize the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. A lot of these kids arent going to remember what that was all about, said Schofield, a sergeant with the Pinellas Park police and also president of the Police and Kids Foundation. My ultimate dream was to try to get the kids a sense of belonging to the community. The students of the Criminal Justice Academy and First Responders program at the high school raised the initial $2,000 cost of the project. Students gathered donations and sold snacks and candy at their programs equivalence to a job fair, called Law Day. But that was back in May, when the memorial was no more than two flagpoles and some new flags to represent their respective training programs. The project has since evolved into something with a price tag closer to $8,000 and thats without calculating in the donated time of professionals involved. The inspiration all started on a park bench, as Schofield tells it. A couple of times a month, Schofield dresses down in civilian clothes for a pedestrian detail, where he tries try to walk across the road without getting killed at major intersections on Park Boulevard, he said. During one such detail, as he waited on the park bench at 49th Street, he saw a plaque at the base of the flagpole he was sitting under. The flagpole, he realized, had been dedicated in honor of those who had died on Sept. 11, by the Knights of Columbus in October 2001. I never noticed, he said. Nobody can see that plaque. He decided that the Kids and Police Foundation could enhance that monument in time for the 10th anniversary of the attacks this year. After clearing the idea with the city, he asked for the support of the students at the academy and first responders program, where he teaches on a weekly basis. The idea was to install two extra flagpoles, at a cost of $550 each, at the corner and design two flags, $600 each, that would represent the law enforcement and firefighter training programs, respectively. After the students raised all the money needed for the project, Schofield hit some snags in its location. The city was leery of installing more flagpoles that might block a new digital marquee planned for the corner of 49th Street and Park Boulevard. City staff suggested building the memorial at Freedom Lake Park. But at the site where the city had already built a Korean War memorial, professional engineers and more elaborate plans were suggested. Schofield said he had promised the Pinellas Park High School students back in March that if they could raise the money, the memorial could be built by the 10-year anniversary of Sept. 11. He felt uneasy making them wait longer for professionals. So he decided to bring the project back to its roots and build it on the high school property, the place where the communitys future police, firefighters and paramedics were being trained. Every day, theyre going to walk by that and realize how important the job theyre going to do is, Schofield said. These kids are our future. Of course, the flagpoles would need something more elaborate to anchor them, Schofield decided. He came up with two designs for a new memorial himself during a night when he couldnt sleep. At 3 oclock in the morning, I sat on the couch with a notepad and started scribbling, he said. Staff at the Pinellas Park High School picked one of the sketches: a star design made of bricks that was inspired by a law enforcement badge, Schofield said. It just symbolizes law enforcement, he said. The straight lines of the star will be easier to create with bricks than a more elaborate badge design. Before he set out to design the memorial, Schofield said he hadnt noticed that a star was designed into the base of the Korean War memorial at Freedom Lake Park. Another sleepless night also produced a design to be engraved on a granite monument that will anchor the memorial. An American flag will fly from a 25-foot pole behind the monument. England Brothers Construction, the Largobased company that was doing much of the construction work, donated their time for the professional drawings of the project, Schofield said. Mullins Concrete Pumping will donate concrete. A city employee will be doing the brick work. Pinellas Parks Home Depot donated $300 worth of supplies. Sumner Granite and Bronze in St. Petersburg discounted $500 off the cost of the monument. Its definitely a grassroots project, for sure, Schofield said. The Pinellas County School Board, after first seeing the project in a workshop two weeks ago, approved the construction of the memorial during its meeting Aug. 9. This is a big year to do this, Schofield said. I think the School Board, one of largest in the state of Florida, thought it was a cool thing to have on one of their school properties. Construction preparations already started this week, with the excavation of a tree on the site and clearing of some of the dirt. Schofield said he hoped the base design could be formed Aug. 13 so that the concrete could be poured the following day. The flagpoles then will be installed. The flags themselves are already designed and made. The monument, made of two pieces of granite, will be installed last. A 5-foot tall, 3foot wide slab, weighing 900 pounds will sit on another 300-pound piece of granite. The finished, 6-foot monument will be mounted to the ground with stainless steel bars to ensure it can withstand schoolyard abuse, Schofield said. Youd have to hit it with a truck, he said. Schofield has already gone the extra mile, in a more literal sense, to make sure the project is completed by Sept. 11. Along with pushing for a faster approval process throughStudents raise funds for 911 project at high school the School Board, Schofield has already purchased the bricks, ones without a five-week delivery time. He also drove to Georgia to pick up the 900-pound piece of granite to be engraved for the monument. Given the expediency of the project, the Police and Kids Foundation has fronted the costs not raised by the high school students, including $1,800 for the bricks, $550 for another flagpole and $2,200 for the monument. To help make up those costs, the foundation is selling engraved bricks, with the message of your choice, to gradually replace the plain bricks that will first make up the memorial. Bricks can be purchased for $50 each via an online form and a PayPal donation through the foundations website at www.police andkids.com. Call Schofield at 647-0175.Design courtesy of TRACEY SCHOFIELDThis diagram shows the layout of the new Sept. 11 memorial planned in front of Pinellas Park High School. A 6-foot-tall granite monument will sit in front of an American flag on a 25-foot pole, flanked by two 20foot flagpoles each bearing a newly designed flag for the schools First Responders program and Criminal Justice Academy, respectively. The star design surrounding the monument will be made of brick, represented by red, and concrete with green foliage within it.

Their shadow lines both night and day make excellent ambush points for predatory fish such as tarpon and cobia and their adjacent structures attract bottom dwellers such as snapper, snook and pompano. The bottom line is, for opportunistic anglers, bridge fishing can be a productive way to put a few fish in the cooler with some good eats while staying cool and dry at the same time. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is by far the best man-made structure for fishing in Pinellas County and most likely the west coast of Florida. It takes years to learn all of the tricks to fishing the Skyway, but even the most novice of anglers can get a rod bent with some basic knowledge of current, bait and tackle. Smaller bridges along the Intracoastal Waterway, such as the Miesner Bridge, Bay Way Bridge, Tierra Verde Bridge, Clearwater Pass Bridge and Johns Pass Bridge, are great bridges as well. Although these bridges may lack the size of the Skyway, they often are less pressured. Snook fishing can be great around the fenders and snapper will hold around any bottom debris and always have a flat-line out with fresh live bait in case of a cobia or tarpon cruising by. Pompano can be found along most bridges in the county. Anchor your boat or use a trolling motor to keep you in place so that you can fish the down current side of the bridge pilings. Bounce Crazy jigs rigged with a teaser fly just off the bottom, or try a live fiddler crab fished up against the piling. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Topics included customer service provided by airlines/tenants/TSA, quality of the airport facility, and reasons for selecting PIE. The airport previously conducted a similar survey in 2008 before the airport began its terminal renovation. The airport received high marks for its cleanliness (97 percent), general appearance (97 percent), courtesy of TSA screening staff (95 percent), and airline customer service (90 percent). The availability of nonstop flights is the primary reason passengers chose PIE (63 percent), followed closely by airfares (54 percent), and destination choices (49 percent).Chamber seeks award nominationsLARGO The Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its esteemed Citizen of the Year and Mac Norcross Small Business Person of the Year awards.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, August 18, 2011Largo officials are giving strong consideration to a proposal to relocate the Belleair Bluffs fire station to another parcel in the Bluffs. Though not perfect, the proposal appears to be the best option to provide service to Bluffs and Belleair areas while also serving the Indian Rocks Road corridor. Though a couple of other fire stations in Largo need work, city officials rank Station 43 as their top priority for reconstruction because of its age and condition. A converted gas station, the station doesnt meet national fire protection standards. Also, Bluffs officials would like to put the property on which Fire Station 43 sits back on the tax rolls. For months Largo officials considered buying property owned by Hospital Corporation of America on Indian Rocks Road in Largo for a consolidated fire station. Moving Station 39, which is located in the Ridgecrest area, to the west was expected to provide efficiency for the area it serves, especially since the city approved agreements last year to provide fire-suppression services to Belleair and Belleair Bluffs. Included with plans for the move was the elimination of Station 43. Among the other benefits, the plan would reduce personnel by half, a substantial costs savings. However, that plan didnt pan out because portions of the property lie in a flood hazard zone and other issues. Also, the likelihood of the city establishing a station along other parts of the corridor is doubtful because of the flood zone. Certainly, Belleair Bluffs commissioners should be pleased with the option of relocating Station 43 to Bayway Avenue, which is centrally located in the Bluffs. Hard to take issue with putting the current station site on the tax roll, too. Several legal and financial issues need to be resolved, but the proposal appears to be the best option available to ensure that cost-effective fire-suppression services is provided to areas in southwest Largo as well as Belleair Bluffs and Belleair. Its rumored that a sizeable number of U.S. medical schools rely on the old spiritual Dry Bones as part of their anatomy courses. You remember how the lyrics go: The foot bone connected to the leg bone, the leg bone connected to the back bone and so on, right up to the top of the head bone. The song was written by James W. Johnson (1871-1938) and has been recorded by many artists. The lyrics are based on a Biblical passage, Ezekiel 37:1-14, in which God asks the prophet to visit a valley filled with dry bones. God supplies new flesh to the bones, causes the bones to be reconnected and then breathes the Spirit into them. Its a lovely story, and gives hope to old-timers and others whose bones are feeling weary and somewhat disconnected. The American Medical Association frowns on the use of Dry Bones in medical school curricula, for obvious reasons. One is that most U.S. schools of medicine are subsidized in small or large ways by public funds. The separation of church and state demands that religion be kept out of the teaching in tax-assisted colleges and universities. In a famous 1937 decision, U.S. vs. the Appaloosa Institute of Orthopedic Medicine, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that dry bones be banned from all anatomy courses in tax-supported colleges. The court said, It is outrageous to believe that any reputable physician would think of treating, say, a compound fracture of the tibia by employing the superficial guidance to be found in dry bones even if the anatomical details were not derived from an obscure episode of the Old Testament. But to allow fragments of any religion to influence American medical education is reprehensible, and cannot be allowed. This ruling is invalid, of course, for medical schools that do not accept government funding. These include the Billy Sunday School of Be-Healed! Miracle Medicine, situated in Indigo, Ind. Its president, the Rev. Arkie Muldoon, has said, If those atheists in Washington think they can prohibit the teachings of the prophet Ezekiel to benefit our medical students and the thousands of sick and needy they will treat, they need to get their head bones examined. Another medical school in Arkansas stages an annual dry bones talent show each spring, in which students construct lifelike skeletons that seem to dance and sing. The highlight of a production is the telling of bony jokes. Example: I call my girl friend Napoleon. Why? Because she has so many bony parts. A second reason dry bones is not endorsed by leading medical schools is that the lyrics leave out so many bones. The bones of the pelvic region, for example. The song says the thigh bone is connected to the back bone, but thats not quite true. If I read my anatomy charts correctly, the thigh bone is connected to a socket that is, in turn, part of the ilium-pubis-ischium structure. Dry bones says nothing about the bones of the hand, arm, jaw or chest. Which is just as well. Who needs all that extra detail? Bones are important. Without them, wed just be clumps of fat, muscle and connective tissue without anything to connect. Bones give us our fundamental shape. One of the least-researched bones is the funny bone. Situated near your elbow, its the only bone in your body that you cant break. Thats because its not really a bone. Its the ulna nerve, and when you accidentally pinch it against one of your arm bones you get a tingling feeling that can be painful. It feels sort of funny, hence the name. Bones are sometimes used to describe human conditions. Such as bone tired. Muscles get tired; bones dont. But they sometimes feel that way. Same way with bone lazy. That expression isnt fair. Why blame bones for our laziness? One of todays better TV series is a crime program called Bones. Several extremely bright, mostly young scientists work with an FBI agent to identify dead crime victims by analyzing their bones and other body fragments. The shows scripts are clever and the women are gorgeous. Without the dug-up bones of ancient creatures, wed have much less knowledge of what the earth and its life were like several million years ago. Archaeologists love bones, especially old ones. The crime novelist Agatha Christie was happily married to an archaeologist. She said, The older I get, the more hes interested in me. A final quote, by actor Peter Ustinov: Parents are the bones on which children cut their teeth. Anyone disagree with that?Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Using dry bones to teach anatomyAmerica doesnt need thisEditor: Well, its finally over terrorism, ineffective government and unethical money deals, all the things that made this country go from wagons to space ships in 100 years are all about to end. The monster has just shown us and the world who really is running this show we call Life in America. No, not the police, military, Wall Street, banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, lawyers, etc. However, all but police and military are involved with this sector, and they benefit from it. Drum roll please. Dare I even mention the name that resides in Mount Doom? Credit score rating agencies. There, I said it. No one group has done more damage to the integrity, honesty and feeling of self-worth than this one. And If we as a people and country dont stop the way this whole hypocritical, too much credit youre a risk, dont have enough credit, sorry cant help you But we sure let everyone take as much off you as they can. Theyre destroying lives, families and businesses. People need jobs and families need homes. We dont need this. You bet Im mad. Al Neuman LargoDebt ceiling and Obama dramaEditor: What a drama the elected officials put up in Washington. They should be ashamed of themselves for behaving like they did. I remember, the late democratic senator from New York, Sen. Patrick Moynihan, said, Every person is entitled to their own opinion, but not his own facts. But, what we saw was our leaders twisting around the facts with their desired spin to fool the people into believing what they wanted them to believe. American people are much smarter then that. When Barnie Frank and many others came out and blamed it all on the Tea Party, I just laughed and said, You cannot be this stupid ... or maybe you are. We as a country need to make hard choices; do it now, and lets get moving forward. No nation can survive on the power of debt. The lenders, other nations in the world, like China, Japan, South Korea, are waiting for us to fix the problem by loaning us money at 20 to 30 year 3 percent rates so we can get our house in order. They understand that a fix to our debt problem is vital to the survival of their own economies. Obama and his cronies have decided to keep the system clogged up by printing more money that we dont have. Lets flush out the system so the nation can start moving forward toward a sustainable recovery, and growth. Mr. President, please lead. These are times, where unthinkable is becoming thinkable. Satendra P. Singh ClearwaterThings in the waterEditor: I loved your article on, How to avoid being eaten alive. That was great! When I think about the places weve gone in the ocean, i.e., Florida, South Carolina, California, Panama, oy vey! I only went waist deep because Id be safe there. (ha ha), I dont think I ever want to go in the ocean again, unless its up to my ankle. Even then I remember the video where the Orca whale comes right to the beach and grabs a seal and scoots its way back in. Im not sure if I want to go in the river either. Sharks swim upstream. I dont know if I want to go in the lake either. See the size of them catfish people are noodling? Ive watched my fair share of monster flicks, like Creature From the Black Lagoon. Theres things down there. Maybe Ill just stick with my pool. As long as it is not at night, in the dark, where sharks or other things could be in your pool, waiting. Safe swimming, Nijole King Woodland, Calif.The clerk was having a bad day. Thats the only explanation I can think of for her giving me a hard time when I asked her for a public record. Since nobody witnessed my conversation with her, I wont divulge the name of the government agency for which she worked. However, because I spend a lot of time covering the city of Largo, I feel obligated to point out that the clerk with the bad attitude did not work for Largo city government. About two weeks ago, I asked the clerk for a public record. It only took her a minute to produce it. I got the information I needed from the file within five minutes, instead of the 45 minutes I thought it would take. Since I had some more time to spare, I waited in line for about five minutes and asked for another file. The clerk asked me if there were any other files I needed. I said that was it. Are you sure? she asked. Im not going to walk back there again. I was taken aback by that comment. But I said I was sure. She brought me the file, and I got the information I needed and returned the file to her. As I was leaving the agency, I couldnt get the conversation I had with the clerk out of my mind. By the time I returned to the office, I was peeved. That clerk had come dangerously close to violating the public record. Under state law, generally speaking, agencies are not supposed to impose conditions upon public record requests. Sure, she gave me the files, but it really was none of her business why I asked for one file as opposed to two. The truth is, when I originally asked for the file, I didnt believe I had time to look through other files and I didnt want the clerk to go to more trouble than necessary to produce records for me. I couldnt let it go even if she was just having a bad day. As journalists, we are taught to fight for our First Amendment rights and hold officials accountable who violate the public records and open government laws. Over four decades, Ive had some battles with officials over records. Ive lost my temper maybe two or three times. In the 1990s in Central Florida, an assistant city manager flatly refused to let one of our reporters see an annexation study. When the reporter told me that she was not allowed to see the study, I decided that I needed to pay the official a visit. I asked again for the study. And again, the assistant city manager refused to give it to us. Why wont you let us see it? Under the public records law, we are entitled to it. I cant. The City Commission hasnt seen it yet, he said. I told him I didnt care whether the commission had seen it or not that the states public records law doesnt allow a city government to delay the release of any public record merely because its elected government body has not reviewed it yet. The city manager was out of town; I continued trying to convince the assistant city manager that he had to give us the study. Finally, I tried another tactic. If the city attorney tells me that I can have the study, will you let us see it? After a few seconds, he said, yes. More hoops. I cant believe this #$%!, I said. I left City Hall and called the city attorney. Calm down, Tom, he said on the phone I told the city attorney that I didnt mean to be angry, but this was a no-brainer. He started to give me a spiel about the state law stipulating that the city has a reasonable amount of time to produce the record. Not days, I said. It was only a matter of copying about a dozen pages. He agreed, and he called the assistant city manager and advised him to release the study. I apologized to the assistant city manager for losing my temper, as I left with a copy of the study. To this day, I honestly believe he didnt want to give us the study because he didnt like being told by the press that under state law he had no choice. A few evenings later, I had a drink after work with an assistant state attorney I knew. The prosecutor didnt blame me for being upset and said the city official was lucky we didnt write a story saying that he had violated the Sunshine law. Maybe we should have. But since I did get the study within hours of asking for it, my boss and I decided that the matter was resolved. Thinking about that incident, I was reminded that as journalists we must strive to be vigilant when protecting the publics right to know. So the day after the clerk was rude to me, I left a message for her boss to call me. I guess I just wanted to vent. My phone call wasnt returned. That upset me, too. Guess Im marking my territory here. Maybe the clerk had a bad day. So Im not going to name names. But I will continue to be sensitive when it comes to protecting the publics right to know. And if I see that clerk again, she better be having a good day.EDITORIALThe best plan for fire stationLargo, Belleair Bluffs officials should pursue proposal 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey email@example.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli firstname.lastname@example.org Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey email@example.com Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier firstname.lastname@example.org Executive Editor: Tom Germond email@example.comProduction Manager: David Brown firstname.lastname@example.org Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter email@example.com Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure firstname.lastname@example.org Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond email@example.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd firstname.lastname@example.org Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl email@example.com Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

To earn the SFHM designation, hospitalists must demonstrate their dedication to quality and process improvement, commitment to organizational teamwork and leadership, as well as lifelong learning and education. Messler is one of 175 hospitalists across the country inducted into the 2011 Society of Hospital Medicines class of Senior Fellows. Senior Fellows are the national and local leaders in the growing specialty of hospital medicine. Hospitalists are physicians who take care of hospitalized patients who do not have a physician or whose primary care physician prefers to have an onsite medical team in charge of coordinating care. Dr. Messler has been on the forefront of hospital improvement processes and initiatives at Morton Plant Hospital since 2005, said Donald Pocock, M.D., Morton Plant Mease chief medical officer, in a press release. Because of his dedication to process improvements, our hospital system continues to grow and offer the best quality inpatient care. Messler was part of the multidisciplinary team for Project BOOST (Better Outcomes for Older Adults through Safe Transitions), to implement evidencebased interventions aimed at improving the discharge process and patient satisfaction. Messler also was part of the multi-disciplinary team on the Morton Plant Turley Diabetes Project to help underinsured diabetic inpatient or emergency room patients have access to follow-up medical care to help manage their disease. Prior to his appointment at Morton Plant, Messler was an assistant professor in Emory Universitys Department of Medicine, working in the hospitalist unit at Grady Health System in Atlanta, Ga.Physicians tag-team to beat arrhythmiaLARGO Two expert cardiac physicians at Largo Medical Center are combining their unique skills to perform a closed-chest minimally invasive approach to heart arrhythmia surgery called the convergent procedure. Together, in the same room here at Largo Medical Center, a cardiac electro physiolgist and a cardiac surgeon are putting a stop to the most common heart rhythm disorder in the United States called Atrial Fibrillation or Afib, said Richard Satcher, CEO of Largo Medical Center, in a press release. The convergent procedure is nothing like traditional open heart surgery where a patient recovers in the hospital for days with a huge incision down the middle of their chest. I make a one inch incision in a patients abdomen, said Joseph Diliberto Jr., M.D., chief of cardiac surgery at Largo Medical Center. Then, I burn scars on the outside surface of the patients heart to block the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats]. As an electro physiologist, I create similar scars but inside the heart, at areas that Dr. Diliberto cant reach from the outside, said John F. Norris, M.D., the director of cardiac electrophysiology at Largo Medical Center. Then at the completion of the procedure, I test the patients heart to ensure all the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats] have been eliminated. The convergent procedure is performed on a beating heart, so hospital recovery time is relatively short. Norris says he often releases the patient in as little as 48 hours after surgery. Since the inception of the convergent procedure program at Largo Medical Center, many Afib patients have stopped taking medications they have been on for years thanks to the excellent results associated with the combined approach.Be on the alert for symptoms of malignant melanoma Briefs Melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancer of melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin. Melanin is a dark, protective pigment and is responsible for tans and our skin tone. Most melanomas appear as a dark brown, black or multi-colored growth with irregular borders. Rarely, melanoma can lack pigment this is called an Amelanotic Melanoma. Melanomas are most often asymptomatic, but can become crusted and bleed. Symptoms usually are signs of a more serious, progressed melanoma. Melanoma can affect anyone at any age and occur at any location on the body. The more common locations are the back of the legs in women and the back in men. People with light hair and eye color, fair skin, and a family history of melanoma, extensive sun exposure and sunburns are at an increased risk of developing melanoma. These skin cancers may arise from a pre-existing mole or develop from normal skin. It is thought that at least half of melanomas arise from normal skin, what is called de novo. Sun exposure certainly has a role in the formation of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. Recent studies also show tanning beds are not safe and also increase your risk. It is best to avoid sun in the peak hours between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Another trick, I tell my patients, is to stay out of the sun when your shadow is shorter than you. Sunscreens that are broad spectrum and an SPF of 30 or greater also help protect you, but are far from perfect. While I recommend sunscreens every day, I prefer sun avoidance and sun protective clothing. It takes a comprehensive plan to protect you from the intense sun in Florida. I recommend inspecting your entire body for any skin changes monthly. This can be done for convenience at the same time as monthly breast exams for women and testicular exams for men. Visit your dermatologist for skin examinations once yearly or more frequently if you have a history of skin cancer. Early detection of melanoma is critical. When caught early, melanoma has a very high cure rate. When found late, melanoma can be deadly and spread to virtually any organ in the body. The standard treatment involves surgically removing the melanoma with a rim of normal tissue. The size of the rim will depend on the depth of the melanoma. Melanomas that are between 0.75 mm and 4.0 mm may require testing of the lymph nodes. This is called the Sentinel Node and it is where a dye is injected at the site of the melanoma and then the lymph nodes at that anatomical location are examined. The lymph node with the dye is checked for cancer under the microscope. If cancer is present, the surgeon may take more of the lymph nodes in this area. This helps with prognosis and in some select patients, may help with survival. In summary, melanoma is a potentially deadly skin cancer. Its incidence is on the rise and it is very important for everyone regardless of age and color of skin to keep a close eye on their skin for any changes. New or changing dark areas need to be examined by a board-certified dermatologist. Melanoma has a great prognosis when caught early, but the success rates are dismal when the cancer has spread. Miscellaneous factoids 1 in 6 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime 90 percent of skin cancers result from the suns ultraviolet radiation Melanoma accounts for 4 percent of skin cancers, but is responsible for 79 percent of deaths arising from skin cancers At least 54,000 Americans develop melanoma annually One American dies every hour in the United State from melanoma Using the A,B,C,Ds of moles and melanoma is a useful tool to help patients monitor their skin. Statistically, melanomas occur most often in areas that are difficult to see by the patient such as the back and the back of the legs Melanomas usually have no symptoms until its more advanced At least half of melanomas arise from normal skin, not from a pre-existing mole.George L.

On April 12, Rounder Records released Paper Airplane, a new collection of songs from Krauss and Union Station, heavyweights in the bluegrass-country arena. A follow-up to 2004s Lonely Runs Both Ways, the album is Krauss first release since her acclaimed collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand, in 2007. That album earned six Grammys including Record Of The Year and Album Of The Year. Paper Airplane features the talents of Krauss on fiddle and lead vocals; Dan Tyminski on guitar, mandolin and lead vocals; Barry Bales on bass and harmony vocals; Ron Block on banjo, guitar and harmony vocals; and Jerry Douglas on dobro and harmony vocals. Produced by Krauss and Union Station, with studio legend Mike Shipley engineering and mixing, Paper Airplane boasts 11 songs. Decca Records describes the tracks as possessing both poignancy and austere beauty and says that they were chosen with impeccable taste and unerring intuition. Bringing it all together, though, was no easy task. Krauss was plagued by migraines during the production of Paper Airplane. There have been records that were tough to make, but this one took the cake, she reports on the Decca Records website. At one point, Dan said, I dont really know what to do unless youre jumping up and down because you love something or you hate it. I make judgments based on how something makes me feel, and because I wasnt physically well, everything was kind of gray and nothing sounded right. So after we recorded a bunch of things, we took a long break, because it just wasnt working. Working through the problems ultimately proved elucidating for Krauss and the band. Whatever formula we thought there was doesnt exist, Krauss said. It disappeared, especially this last time out. You cant trust your method; you cant rely on a method. The only thing you can do is record things that move you that have a connection with you and to represent yourself truthfully. Krauss explained that the things she sings about have to be true otherwise, she cant sing them with sincerity. Whether I write them or not, they have to be true for me to say it, and for the guys to play it. Krauss, 39, has already enjoyed a remarkable career, which spans a quarter century. She bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. Krauss has released 12 albums, including four solo albums and six with Union Station. She has contributed to several soundtracks, including O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain. She is credited with helping to revive interest in bluegrass. Krauss was only 14 when she released her first album, Different Strokes, on Fiddle Tunes label. The album features a collection of traditional bluegrass fiddle tunes. Rounder Records signed Krauss and she released her next album, Too Late To Cry, in 1987. This was followed shortly by her first group album with Union Station in 1989, Two Highways, which included traditional tunes such as Wild Bill Jones and Beaumont Rag as well as a bluegrass variation The Allman Brothers Midnight Rider. Because her contract with Rounder stipulated that she had to alternate between solo albums and albums with Union Station, in 1990 Krauss delivered Ive Got That Old Feeling which peaked at No. 75 on the country charts and earned the artist her first Grammy Award for the single Steel Rails. Since then, Krauss has continued to release a string of critically and commercially successful albums including Every Time You Say Goodbye (1992), I Know Who Holds Tomorrow (1994), So Long So Wrong (1997), Forget About It (1999), New Favorite) (2001), Lonely Runs Both Ways (2004) and Raising Sand (2007). Krauss work is deeply introspective and employs traditional modes to convey timely and topical messages. In the case of Paper Airplane, Krauss and her band have managed to forge a collection of songs that can be viewed alternately as a portrait of the composer or as a portrait of modern America. During its first week of release, Paper Airplane sold approximately 83,000 copies making it Krauss first No. 1 album on the Billboard Top Country Albums. It also is the highest entry for the Krauss on the Billboard 200, where it debuted at No. 3. Krauss and Union Station will bring the Paper Airplane Summer Tour 2011 to the Tampa Bay area with the performance at Ruth Eckerd Hall. CLEARWATER With Brighton Beach Memoirs, playwright Neil Simon demonstrated a complexity in composition not evident in his earlier comedies. Simons coming-of-age comedy Brighton Beach Memoirs runs through Sunday, Aug. 21, at Francis Wilson Playhouse, 302 Seminole St. In this, the first play in the series that became known as the Eugene trilogy, Simon combines comedy with dramatic intensity, offering insights into a bygone era while harvesting humor from mundane situations and personal calamity. Director Nonie White has assembled a talented cast capable of balancing the plays individual misfortunes with its comic sharpness. Set in 1937, Brighton Beach Memoirs is a semi-autobiographical play. It centers on a PolishAmerican Jewish family living in the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn during the height of the Great Depression. The audience views the action through the eyes of Eugene Morris Jerome, nearly 15 and grappling with puberty. Eugene sporadically addresses the audience directly, reading from his memoirs.

Brighton Beach Memoirs premiered on Broadway in 1983. Today, the show is no less topical. Much of the humor derives directly from Eugenes intermittent asides as he offers shrewd and witty observations on his familys idiosyncrasies, talks about his future as either a baseball player or an aspiring writer or blathers on about the subject nearest and dearest to his heart: girls. Through Eugene, Simon delivers plenty of hilarious one-liners; however, the real comedy in this piece blossoms from the charmingly eccentric characters and the situations in which they find themselves even though some of the situations dont really seem all that funny, particularly given the milieu. For instance, when Stanley nearly loses his job standing up for his principals, the family struggling to survive faces a real crisis. Simon manages to plumb even this minor tragedy for its comic worth. Its that clumsy marriage of drama and comedy that make Brighton Beach Memoirs all the more authentic and sincere. Simon took considerable care balancing the tragic with the comic in Brighton Beach Memoirs, and the cast of this Francis Wilson production understands the importance of his critical equilibrium. Austin Hammesfahr plays Eugene. Hammesfahr has both the timing and the get-up-and-go to portray the character perfectly. His Eugene is a whirlwind of youthful vitality and moodiness and mock bravado. He delivers Simons side-splitting wisecracks not with the calculated precision of a standup comic, but with candid informality as if hes sharing his reflections with close friends. Bill Harber and Lorrie Lykins play Jack and Kate. Lykins Kate is delicately domineering, matriarchal and constantly in motion. Lykins conveys the characters tireless faade as well as her overtaxed soul particularly when Kate reaches her boiling point in the second act. In a fittingly low-key performance, Harber paints a father figure who is nurturing and considerate one moment and strict and commanding the next. Through Harber, the weight of the responsibilities Jack shoulders is keenly evident as is his love for his family. Trish Keating plays Blanche. Keating captures the uncertainty and purposelessness that have become Blanches prison. Keatings Blanche is drifting and floating; she actually shrinks into the background and allows herself to be eclipsed by other characters to emphasize her loss of self. When Blanche finally erupts, Keating makes the transformation very convincing, as if she has awoken from a protracted dream. Nora is played by Kristen Lykins. Lykins resists the temptation to play the character as a spoiled brat. Nora is a product of her mothers indecision and ambiguity and her desire to run off to become a Broadway star is not without purpose. Lykins delivers a Nora with smooth edges and good intentions both strong in her disapproval of her mothers indecisiveness and sympathetic as a daughter who has lost parental guidance. Alyssa Esposito, at 13, offers a stunningly mature portrayal of Laurie. Blanches youngest daughter has been diagnosed with heart flutters, and is therefore mollycoddled by most of the family. Espositos Laurie is pampered and manipulative. Esposito successfully depicts the character as more strong-minded and clear-thinking than both her older sister and her mother. Michael Wogaman proves his range as he delivers two distinct sides of Stanley: One is a stern but amiable big brother to Eugene; the other is a young man learning to be an adult who displays great respect for his father. Wogaman does an exceptional job weaving these two personas together over the course of the play. In her notes, the director states that Simon has a knack for reaching his audience with situations and characters that are so real many of us could put names of people we know in place of the character names. White goes on to say that the most rewarding aspect of directing Brighton Beach Memoirs is finding all the connections and layers of these characters and their lives. Its no secret that some suggest Simon sees this tumultuous era through rose-colored glasses. Situating a comedy amidst the Austin Hammesfahr, left, stars as Eugene Morris Jerome, and Michael Wogaman as Stanley in the Francis Wilson Playhouse production of Neil Simons Brighton Beach Memoirs.hardships of the Great Depression and the inevitability of a imminent world war is problematic, but the playwright knew that people still found time to laugh, even in 1937. Simon accentuates family harmony and humor to offset the ominous backdrop, imbuing Brighton Beach Memoirs with a genuineness that overshadows any accusations of clich or naivety. White and the cast of this production of Brighton Beach Memoirs establish that Simons work is simultaneously heartwarming and humorous, timeless and relevant. Performances at Francis Wilson Playhouse are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m. Matinees will be presented Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $21 for adults and $11 for students.

Pkg Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Conan the BarbarianGenre: Action, adventure and fantasy Cast: Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, Said Taghmaoui, Rachel Nichols and Leo Howard Director: Marcus Nispel Rated: R The most legendary barbarian of all time is back this summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds Conans exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film. A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil. One DayGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess, Patricia Clarkson, Ken Stott, Romola Garai, Rafe Spall and Jodie Whittaker Director: Lone Scherfig Rated: PG-13 After one day together July 15, 1988, their college graduation Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground. For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.Spy Kids: All the Time in the WorldGenre: Action, adventure, comedy and family Cast: Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Danny Trejo, Antonio Banderas and Jessica Alba Director: Robert Rodriguez Rated: PG On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all ... married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly dont want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldnt know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case Marissas a retired secret agent. Marissas world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and shes called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the worlds most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while theyre at it.Fright NightGenre: Comedy, horror and suspense Cast: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, David Tennant and Christopher MintzPlasse Director: Craig Gillespie Rated: R Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all hes running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, hes so cool hes even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but theres something not quite right yet no one, including Charleys mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that hes telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.The following will open in limited release.
