Just ducky Photos by TOM GERMONDBetty Luttiers Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers had fun fetching a dummy training duck at the Soggy Doggie Splash Party at Highland Recreation Center Oct. 15. The breed was developed in the early 19th century to lure and retrieve waterfowl. Both the dogs are 6 years old. After a few hours at the recreation center, Luttier, who lives in Seminole, said Mommas tired; theyre not. Dogs competed in a variety of events during the day and enjoyed the water. Luttier is shown in the photo above with the training dummy. Behind her is Monica Browne, a city of Largo employee.City may allow mobile food vendors By TOM GERMONDLARGO Residents may eventually get a taste of mobile food vendors with names such as Taco Bus, Bistro Truck, Chow Haul, and Slow Food Truck. City commissioners liked the concept of allowing mobile food vendors in Largo, but raised many questions Oct. 18 about regulating them. Among concerns expressed by a couple of commissioners was whether the mobile vendors would take away business from existing restaurants. City officials, who asked for authorization to prepare an ordinance regulating the vendors, said the intent is for mobile vendors to complement existing businesses rather than compete with them. The popularity of mobile food vendors is spreading to many cities in Florida, said city Program Planner Karisa Rojas-Norton. Mobile vendors, such as the Taco Bus, are operating in Tampa and St. Petersburg, and food truck rallies attract thousands of people to their events, Rojas-Norton said. She said the popularity is due to the recession, the rise of social media and demand of consumers to have an urban experience. During the economic downturn, mobile food vending has proven to be a good model for small businesses, Rojas-Norton said. Restaurants are traditionally one of the top start-up businesses in the country, but they require a lot of upfront capital and investment, she said. This proposed ordinance is an opportunity to be an incubator for these start-ups to test the Largo market, gather a following, identify a site that works for their business model and raise capital to eventually have a full-service restaurant, she said. The proposed ordinance stipulates that no more than 15 mobile food vendor permits will be granted in the city annually. It sets an annual permit fee of $200 per mobile food vendor unit. They would not be permitted on the public right of way or on residential private parcels. Commissioner Robert Murray expressed concern about a successful vendor wanting to expand his fleet of trucks instead of opening up a restaurant. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said that the city could restrict the number of licenses that could be issued to a vendor. We can do some research and see what other cities have done, she said. Murray said an ice cream vendor with a truck and an ice cream shop could be located near each other. He also said that the city limits the type of signage businesses have based on the square footage of their buildings. Whereas here we are going to have this thing painted in all kinds of colors.

By MELINDA GREENELARGO Seated behind a dark wooden desk in his large, sunlit-filled office, John Stewart, the recently appointed interim superintendent for the Pinellas County School District, is unimposing and bespectacled resembling the Midwest high school geography teacher he once was. Appearances, however, are deceiving. Few might guess that despite an unassuming demeanor, the man runs a corporation a large and varied one consisting of 101,000 students, 142 school sites and 17,000 teachers, administrators and support employees. Yet, Stewart, 63, appears to take it in good-natured stride. He refers to the school system as a great, big bureaucracy. I try not to get too high and try not to get too low, I try to stay level. Weve got to bring our focus back to student achievement. We kind of got away from that. There was a tremendous push for student achievement something which has been allowed to slip over the past several years, he said. Proper decision making, to be good communicators and to treat one another as family members Stewart said are the major components in moving the school district forward. Plan, study, do, and act are how Stewart sums up his methodical approach to leadership. He maintains this as a philosophy applicable to students, teachers, administration and the district. A native of Indiana who graduated from Indiana State University in 1966, Stewart pursued his graduate studies at Florida Atlantic University, receiving his doctorate in education in 1981. Shortly thereafter, in 1983, the governor appointed him to serve as superintendent for the Polk County district a position he held until 1996. An avid Gator fan (making frequent pilgrimages to the Gainesville campus), he and his wife, Susan, of 43 years, have two grown daughters, Laura and Emily. Reading fiction and mysteries and watching spectator sports are what he does to unwind. Stewart said he also seeks to remedy the countys less than stellar record of educating its minority students who attend the public schools and according to recent studies, have fallen further behind in meeting educational goals. Recently, at a School Board public hearing on the budget, dozens of teachers and support staff criticized the board for many of the cuts being implemented See SUPERINTENDENT, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .13A Classieds . . . . . . . . .4-7B Community . . . . . . . .10,12A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-3,8B Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .2-3A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .8A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .10A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .9A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .11A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising LARGOLibrary circulation on the increaseThe countys libraries are experiencing an increase in circulation despite budget cuts and a reduction in hours.

Average service hours we had to decrease mostly because of budget constraints, but circulation went up by over a 1 million, said Mary Brown, Pinellas Public Library Cooperative executive director. Even with some reduced hours and reduced staffing, libraries were being used more heavily in 2009-2010 than they were back in 2006-2007 and I would expect the numbers in 2011 are going to show that even higher, Brown said, at the City Commissions Oct. 11 work session. Circulation was under 500,000 in 2006-2007 and is currently at 1.56 million. Brown gave an update to city officials on the cooperative, which has 13 member libraries, including Largos, and was created in 1989. The cooperative office provides coordination of activities and funding as well as marketing services for 15 member libraries and is overseen by a nine-member board. The cooperatives interlocal agreement expires Sept. 30, and it hopes to send a draft agreement to the city by early 2012. Im really here to make you aware of it so you are looking for it, Brown said. There are more than 500,000 library cards issued in the county. County libraries have a wide range of operating hours, Brown said, between 44 and 75 per week. St. Petersburg, Safety Harbor and Largo are in the midto upper range. The Largo Public Library is open 56 hours a week. Commissioner Curtis Holmes suggested that if the library system has 500,000 members, an annual subscription fee of $5 would offset expenses by $2.5 million. Free public library service in the state of Florida means that you provide materials, collections, reference services and programs without additional costs. So that is a standard that we do hold and we do support, Brown said. Of course, not everyone has the capacity to pay. Holmes replied that the service is not at no costs; somebody else is paying for it. I dont know whats wrong with putting a token out there for a subscription fee, he said. Just a token. As somebody who puts in requests all the time, Im always amazed how fast they come in (materials) from the other end of the county. I wouldnt mind rather than wait for the copy to become available in my city, paying a $1 to get it from another city, Mayor Pat Gerard said. The libraries have an issue of providing an equitable level of service across the country. One of the services that the libraries consider reasonable is the transportation and movement of materials, Brown said. Its a standard that all of our library systems throughout the states do hold, she said. We are not unique in doing that.

4A Leader, October 20, 2011 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER By the end of the year, water fluoridation in Pinellas County will be no more. County Commissioners voted, 4-3, during an Oct. 4 work session to stop the practice. But not everyone is happy. Commissioner Ken Welch said this is one of the most difficult decisions the commission has ever made, as he and other fluoride supporters lobbied Oct. 11 to reverse the decision. Fluoridation wasnt on the days regular meeting agenda, but a local newspaper reported beforehand that Welch planned to ask Commissioners Neil Brickfield, Nancy Bostock, John Morroni and Norm Roche to reconsider their vote. Word also got out that staff would present its recommendations on how best to stop the seven-year practice of putting additional fluoride in the countys drinking water. A small crowd assembled in the fifth floor assembly room and more than 20 speakers came to the podium during the public comment segment. The first side bar of controversy came when a representative from the Florida Dental Association prepared to show a short video on the benefits of fluoridation. When people come and ask to show videos, we routinely say no, Brickfield said. Its a prerogative of the chair, Commission Chair Susan Latvala said, explaining that the association had asked to play the video the day before the meeting. Commissioner Karen Seel said asking ahead of time made a difference. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said the ability to play videos by the public should be the same for all. She asked how people know (to ask ahead).Fluoride pros and consCommissioner Norm Roche, who made the motion Oct. 4 for a vote to stop adding fluoride to public drinking supply, said he wasnt against the practice of fluoridation per se. He said he understood the merits. He is concerned about the type of fluoride used and the levels added to the water. Calcium fluoride occurs naturally. It is found in ground water in many areas of the world including the state of Florida. However, for fluoridation of drinking water, most communities use sodium fluoride or fluorosilcic acid, which are industrial byproducts. Pinellas County uses 23 percent fluorosilcic acid, which is a liquid by-product of phosphate fertilizer manufacture. Bob Powell, who is in charge of the countys water and sewer division, said in an Oct. 12 email that the form and amount of fluorosilcic acid Utilities adds to the water supply conforms to standards set forth by the federal government. The county has used the same form of fluoride since July 2004.Dental fluorosisThe increase in the occurrence of fluorosis is one of the reasons the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lowered its recommendation of 0.7 to 1.0 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water to 0.7 milligrams per liter in a report released Jan. 7. The updated recommendations are based on recent EPA and HHS scientific assessments to balance the benefits of preventing tooth decay while limiting any unwanted health effects. HHS and EPA reached an understanding of the latest science on fluoride and its effects on tooth decay prevention and the development of dental fluorosis, the report said. Dental fluorosis is caused by excessive exposure to fluoride when teeth are being developed, usually in children younger than age 8. However, it can occur in any age. It usually appears as white streaks or spots on the teeth and, in the past, was considered nothing more than a cosmetic problem. The spots and streaks are permanent and sometimes get darker over time. In severe cases, black or brown stains may appear and the teeth may crack or develop pits.Public speaks outThe EPA and HHS report fueled those who have opposed fluoridation since the 1960s when studies pointed to potential harmful effects. More people, including scientists and even some dentists, question the wisdom of the practice started in the 1940s. Opponents of fluoridation say the use of industrial byproducts, which have warning labels that say corrosive and toxic, in drinking water supplies and toothpastes is poisoning the population. They believe the practice may be the cause of a myriad of health problems beyond that of dental fluorosis. Several speakers talked about personal health problems they believe are tied to fluoridated water. They say it can accumulate in the bones, a permanent affliction. They say it affects the thyroid and the brain. Others say fluoridation is not at all about preventing tooth decay, but instead is a way for industries to get rid of their toxic waste. They say it is unfair for the government to put what they believe are toxins in the water, especially since it is so expensive to filter it out. Fluoride opponents say it is about the publics right to choose. The commissioners also heard warnings of potential lawsuits, as speakers compared fluoride with lead, asbestos and tobacco. People who support fluoridation say talk about fluoride being a poison is nothing more than a scare tactic. They say there is no conspiracy or partnership with industry to help it rid itself of toxic waste. They say there is no clear evidence of harm. Fluoridation is nothing more than an inexpensive way to help reduce the occurrence of dental caries. And it is working, according to statistics that show the reduction in dental decay, especially among children, that has occurred since fluoridation began. Fluoride supporters say the amounts used, as recommended by the EPA and HHS, are safe. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agrees. For 65 years, community water fluoridation has been a safe and healthy way to effectively prevent tooth decay, the CDC says on its website. CDC hails water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century. Local dentists fear that without fluoride in the water supply, the incidence of tooth decay will rise, increasing the suffering of those who cannot afford dental care. They say the county wont be able to afford to help those in need. CDC says dental caries increased by as much as 27 percent in locations that ceased water fluoridation. In areas with fluoridation, a reduction of 15 to 40 percent has been reported.No referendumDuring the Oct. 4 meeting, commissioners talked about their own dental health. Seel said she grew up without fluoride in the water and, as a result, had spent thousands of dollars on her teeth. Brickfield said he grew up with fluoride and had spent a large sum of money keeping his teeth healthy too. He questions the effectiveness. Bostock believes there is enough science to question the potential harm from cumulative effects of fluoride in the body overtime. Morroni supported a referendum to decide during the Oct. 11 meeting. He said he talked to Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark who told him it would not be that difficult to do. Welch said he would only support a referendum if it meant fluoridation would continue until the people could vote. I cant support it otherwise, he said. People in the audience from both sides of the argument spoke against a referendum, saying the public wasnt educated enough about the matter to make a good decision. No one made a motion to call for a referendum.When will it end?Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard said at least 60 days was needed to inform the public through stuffers in with their bi-monthly Utilities bills. He said wholesale customers needed to be told, as well as the Florida Department of Health. Wholesale customers are Pinellas Park, Clearwater, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar and Tarpon Springs. Staff estimates enough supplies are available to continue fluoridating through Dec. 31. Woodard said more could be purchased, if necessary. Roche and Bostock were against buying more and suggested an absolute date not be used. They said staff should instead tell the public that sometime before the first of next year, when supplies ran out, fluoridation would stop. A final decision on the matter wasnt clear; however, Woodard said the countys supplier had indicated it would be willing to buy back any unused product, but the county would likely be responsible for transportation costs.Work session voteMorroni brought up the subject of the initial vote at a work session. He said in past years, it had been a given that votes on matters other than direction to staff would not occur. He questioned if a policy was needed to make sure decisions of public interest were not made at work sessions in the future. Latvala pointed out that while no one had expected a vote to be taken at the work session, removing fluoride from the water was a policy decision to be made by the board. No public hearing was required. She said work sessions often require direction to be given to staff. Latvala, Seel and Welch lobbied to schedule another work session to discuss a referendum and again weigh the pros and cons. One of their reasons was the unexpected vote during a work session, and they said there was a great deal of public interest. Bostock objected to continuing talks. Weve already done that, she said. The votes been taken. We werent anticipating a vote would be taken at the last work session, Latvala said. A lot of attention is being given to this. She advocated more discussion, saying the commission was responsible for public health in Pinellas County. Welch questioned the rush to get this implemented, saying after seven years a little more time would not make a difference. Seel said they needed to look at all the scientific evidence. I read everything I could get my hands on, Bostock said. We had scientific evidence. We had a workshop. Maybe some people disagreed on the outcome. Latvala said very few issues that had come before the commission had received this much public outcry. Morroni agreed that the issue was drawing a lot of public attention. Weve not seen an issue like this, he said. He said email feedback he had received showed want it and 119 dont. Roche said his email was about 60 percent to 40 percent against fluoride. Bostock said the time for work sessions was over, repeating she had listened to all the evidence presented at the Oct. 4 meeting. Weve done this. I stand by it, she said.Commissioners stand firm on decision of fluoride SUPERINTENDENT, from page 1Aacross the board that they say have impacted them and their families as well as the students. Yet, Stewart acknowledges that in tough economic times, this cannot always be avoided. I want to get a renewed emphasis on how we spend our money. I want everybody to work with the concept that we have to be good stewards of the taxpayers dollars. That is a culture in and of itself, he said. When the School Board voted unanimously to fire former superintendent, Julie Janssen, in September, it wasted no time zeroing in on Stewart as the best candidate to fill the vacancy who, in addition to a 38-year career in public education, served as the districts deputy superintendent under Howard Hinesley from 2000-2003. Having stepped down in 2009 from a three-year stint as the executive director for the Florida High School Athletic Association, the challenge to come back and a feeling of being needed and appreciated lured him out of retirement. So satisfied is the School Board with Stewarts performance, to date, that it no longer sees the need to rush the search for a new superintendent, instead agreeing to allow ample time for Stewart to remain on the job. All good things must end, however, including Stewarts employment contract for which he receives a salary of $12,000 a month plus benefits. It stipulates he will not seek the position on a fulltime basis. Yet, he has agreed to stay on the job for up to 18 months or until a new superintendent is hired. Despite the challenges and inevitable rough patches that may lie ahead, Stewart never wavers in his passion for kids. In 42 years, he said, Ive never, ever not liked coming to work, I love coming to work. Local dentists are worried that stopping fluoridation will increase the problem of dental caries, causing health care costs to soar beyond what the county can afford to pay. They say the practice is working.Treasure Island extends alcohol restrictionsTREASURE ISLAND There are currently no restrictions on alcohol consumption on Sunset Beach for now. But that will change the first weekend in February when a new ordinance governing the hours beachgoers can pop a cold one will go into effect. After a lengthy discussion, city commissioners voted unanimously Oct. 4 to reinstitute a previous ordinance that was successful at keeping rowdy beachgoers away. The new ordinance will become effective Feb. 4 and continue through Sept. 30. It will ban possession and consumption of open containers of alcohol from immediately south of the Island Inn Resort to the southern property line of the Sunset Chateau condominiums on Saturdays, Sundays and three holidays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Violations will carry a fine up to $500 per day and/or imprisonment of up to 60 days in the county jail. Opposition to the ordinance came from two bar owners and the owner of a liquor store who claimed the previous ordinance resulted in their businesses dropping between 30 percent and 40 percent in revenue over a four-month period. Fred Stern, owner of KaTiki, 8801 W. Gulf Blvd., was one of the bar owners against the ordinance and argued that any ordinance passed should impact the entire city. You should make this island-wide or not at all, said Stern. Then well see what youre made of. Do you have the guts to do that? Put everybody else in the same boat you put me, Caddys and everybody else in. Sunset Beach resident Eric Corson suggested there would be a petition drive by residents to override the ordinance with a referendum. You guys go ahead and do what you want and well do what we want, he said. Well see what happens at the polls. Tim Driscoll, an attorney representing business owners against the ordinance, said the regulation is an arbitrary action, resulting in direct damage to businesses. He also accused the city of violating its charter by ignoring a 1986 referendum that made it legal to drink alcohol on city beaches. Youve been unable to identify alcohol to the unruly behavior of the people in that area, Driscoll said. There is no evidence to indicate a need for this (ordinance). City attorney Maura Kiefer vehemently disagreed with Driscoll, noting that the ordinance is a regulation of hours, not a ban on alcohol. Ive sat through these hearings on this issue and there is evidence, Kiefer said. There is ample evidence on record to support the (ordinance). The minute the regulations started (last May), it (rowdiness) stopped. Police reports went down, violence and incidents stopped. Kiefer went on to say that Driscolls accusation that the ordinance was selective enforcement does not apply. This is not a ban, said Kiefer. Its an ordinance that sets some restrictive hours. Bob McClureCouncil declines to respond to Times editorial that angered mayorCLEARWATER All mayors leave their mark on Clearwater, and Mayor Frank Hibbard, who will soon be term-limited out of office, hoped his would be a good one. Therefore, he was livid when he opened his Oct. 3 issue of the St. Petersburg Times and read an editorial that dubbed him the mayor who demolished playgrounds, and added that one of his lasting legacies is the demolition of at least one of every four playgrounds in Clearwater. At a City Council work session a couple of hours later, during a discussion of a City Charter review, former City Clerk Cyndie Goudeau, who chaired the review panel, casually said that one of these days, newspapers are not going to be peoples main way of finding things out. We live in hopes, after todays editorial, Hibbard responded. Hibbard had Joelle Castelli, head of the citys communications department, help him draft a letter of response to the editorial. He presented the letter to the council at its Oct. 6 meeting and asked the members to join him in signing it. But their response was lukewarm at best. Vice Mayor George Cretekos said that while he found the editorial inaccurate, the Times was well within its First Amendment rights in printing it. Quite frankly, personally, I would prefer that we let this matter drop, Cretekos said. I think it was an incredibly cheap shot, Councilman Paul Gibson said of the editorial. But Gibson said that the Times overestimated the mayors power. I dont think one person makes waves in a city of 110,000 people, he said. In 2005, the year that Hibbard became mayor, the entire council adopted a policy of closing excess playgrounds as their equipment wears out and using the money saved to properly maintain the remaining playgrounds, while still adhering to the citys policy of having at least one playground within a mile of every Clearwater resident. The 34 playgrounds that existed in 2005 will be reduced to 20 by 2019. What were pulling back to still provides a playground within one mile of every child in Clearwater, said Councilman John Doran, who said that he had considered writing his own letter to the Times, saying that that was the policy of the entire City Council and not Hibbards policy alone. I think the editorial unfairly portrayed our mayor with the power to unilaterally change the policy regarding playgrounds, Councilman Bill Jonson agreed. But he added that it might be possible to keep more playgrounds open by switching the focus from older kids, who require expensive equipment, to younger children, whose equipment is less expensive. Joe Paige, a former City Council candidate and vocal opponent of government spending at all levels, said that Hibbard and the council had asked for this type of behavior by promising more than they were able to deliver. Saying that he was tired of paying taxes to finance other peoples amenities, Paige ticked off a long list of expensive projects that Hibbard had helped approve and said that the Times shouldnt have limited its editorial to the playground cuts. Weve started down a path of closing obsolete playgrounds and should continue on that path if the city is going to be consistent, Hibbard told his colleagues. I think we set a reasonable policy. Were talking about (no more than) a mile away. That means that most people are a half-mile away (from a playground) or three blocks away, or whatever the case may be. Hibbard didnt seem too disappointed when the council declined to sign the letter of rebuttal to the Times. Lester R. Dailey Around Pinellas Around Pinellas VENDORS, from page 1Agoing to the mobile vendor in the same location versus the fixed vendor, he said. Murray said he doesnt know if the city should allow the mobile vendors selling the same types of food as restaurants in the same location. The competition isnt really fair because the mobile food vendor has a lower barrier to entry than the person who has the brick and mortar, he said. The private property owners would deal with the potential of having two same land uses on their properties, Rojas-Norton said. It would behoove them to talk to their existing tenant before they put in a similar use, Rojas-Norton said. Noncompete clauses are typical in leases, she said. We felt it would be handled in the private sector, she said. Commissioner Woody Brown agreed, saying the landlord wouldnt allow a taco truck to park in front of a taco restaurant because he might lose the taco restaurant thats paying more rent for the space, I would think. He said the city should be careful and not impose too many regulations on the vendors. Let them come and sell some good, tasty food to us in the parking lot, he said. The existing businesses will reap the benefits of people coming to the mobile vendors, he said. Commissioner Mary Black said within two years at the most a vendor should know whether it has a good venue. She was concerned that mobile vendors can operate year after year while other people are building their restaurants. Commissioner Harriet Crozier said the commission has spent a lot of time discussing the issue. At her suggestion, commissioners voted 5-0 to prepare an ordinance that will be discussed at work session. Commissioner Gigi Arntzen and Mayor Pat Gerard were absent. The proposed ordinance says that the mobile vendors will be prohibited from selling or distributing any type of glass container with the exception of sealed prepackage nonalcoholic beverages, such as juices. Amplified music or other sounds from any mobile home food unit for the purposes of vending products would be prohibited.

Brian Keith Doll, 50, was pronounced dead at Bayfront Medical Center at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 13. The Medical Examiners Office will conduct an autopsy to determine cause and manner of death. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, the crash occurred about 10:29 p.m. at 557 Edgewater Drive. Investigators said Doll was traveling southbound on Edgewater Drive (south of Main Street), when his 2006 Suzuki 650 motorcycle sideswiped a steel guardrail on the west side of Edgewater Drive. Deputies say the motorcycle then struck a concrete gutter and began to cartwheel through some trees. Doll was ejected from the motorcycle during the crash. He was not wearing a helmet. He was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of lifethreatening injuries. Preliminary evidence indicates that alcohol and speed may have been a factor in the crash. Edgewater Drive was shut down for north and southbound traffic between President Street and Aberdeen Street for several hours while the crash was investigated. No other injuries were reported. The investigation continues.Seminole man injured in shootingSEMINOLE Pinellas County sheriffs detectives are investigating what appears to be an accidental shooting in Seminole. Deputies responded to a report of the shooting about 1:58 a.m. Oct. 13 and found Chaz Ursomanno, 22, unconscious and seriously injured from a single gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Bayfront Hospital where he remains in serious condition with what appears to be life-threatening injuries. Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, which they say most likely is a tragic accident. According to detectives, Ursomanno was showing his girlfriend, Naomi Ensell, 24, a handgun at their 87th Terrace residence in Seminole. She told him to put the gun away, but he claimed it was safe and unloaded. He put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger to demonstrate, and the gun did not fire. Confident it was empty he repeated this again. Unfortunately, the gun was loaded and this time it did fire, the sheriffs report said. The investigation continues.One seriously injured in scooter crashSEMINOLE A Seminole woman suffered serious injuries after the scooter she was riding collided with a car about 1:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at the intersection of Bay Pines Boulevard and 94th Street N. Sheila Simpson, 53, of Seminole was trapped under the car and dragged about 25 feet, according to a report from the Pinellas County sheriffs report. Rescue units eventually freed her and she was transported to Bay Front Hospital in St. Petersburg with life-threatening injuries. Simpson was not wearing a helmet The driver of the vehicle, John Ferrante, 82, of St. Petersburg was not injured. According to deputies, Simpson was operating an Astro scooter westbound on Bay Pines Boulevard approaching 94th Street North. Ferrante was in his 1989 Plymouth Acclaim at the intersection of Bay Pines Boulevard and 94th Street in the left turn lane of Bay Pines Boulevard facing east and attempting to make a left turn to go north on 94th Street. As he began to make the turn, the two collided in the intersection. The impact sent Simpson under Ferrantes vehicle. She was seriously injured but conscious and talking to paramedics before she was taken to the hospital where she remains in serious condition. No one has been cited at fault in the crash. The investigation continues.Bank robber threatens with bombPINELLAS PARK A St. Petersburg man, later charged with robbing the Wells Fargo Bank at 7100 U.S. 19 Oct. 15, told Pinellas Park police that he had a bomb strapped to his body and alluded that he was a terrorist, according to reports. Despite his threats, Korion Antwan Amons, 30, was arrested without incident. According to the department, Amons entered the Wells Fargo Bank at around 10:30 a.m. Oct. 15 and gave a note to a teller that said he had a bomb in the bank that would detonate if the teller didnt give him money. The note alluded that Amons was a terrorist, police reported. Amons left the bank on foot. A witness followed him north and was able to direct responding officers to his location, where he threatened officers with the bomb. After taking Amons into custody, officers recovered the stolen money. Amons was booked into the Pinellas County Jail later that afternoon with one charge of felony robbery. He is being held on a $10,000 bondIRB couple chargedINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office arrested 41-year-old Lori Ann Elliott of Indian Rocks Beach Oct. 12 on a sexual battery familiar authority charge involving a 15-year-old boy.

Wine Anthonys Deli Sweets by Chef Scott Perman & Miss Vicki Free Restaurant, Plant and Goodie Bag rafes $5 million grant means new buses for PSTAST. PETERSBURG Congresswoman Kathy Castor (D-Tampa) called Brad Miller, CEO for Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Oct. 15 to announce that PSTA would be awarded $5 million as part of a competitive Federal Transit Administration grant program known as State of Good Repair. PSTA plans to replace PSTAs eight oldest buses with new hybridelectric buses that will ensure the authoritys 41,000 daily customers can reliably connect to jobs and other activities. This news couldnt have come at a better time, Miller said in a press release. The economic downturn has caused PSTA to defer 100 percent of its bus replacements from its five-year capital program and the 13year old buses that these funds will replace have the greatest number of breakdowns of the nearly 200 buses in PSTAs fleet. Not only will the hybrid buses be good for our environment, they will also improve transit options, increase access to jobs and employment centers and increase ridership, said Castor, whose district includes a portion of Pinellas County. This is PSTAs first competitive grant award from the Department of Transportation. Historically, PSTA, as most public transit agencies, relied on congressional earmarks for bus replacement funds, but as Congress has discontinued allocating funds via earmark. Some of those funds are now allocated by competitive grant processes comparing applications from across the country against each other. When told about the new State of Good Repair funding to replace the old buses, PSTA Maintenance Superintendent Billy Johnson broke into a wide smile as though the weight his eight most-problematic buses had just been lifted from his shoulders. This is a really big deal well not only be able to take the old buses off of the road, but we can replace them with hybrid models that get nearly twice as many miles per gallon and cut engine emissions by 90 percent, Johnson said. Once these new buses arrive in about one year one out of every six of PSTAs buses will be diesel-electric hybrid. PSTA also recently began purchasing hybrid sedans for its supervisory and other support vehicles.

The day starts at 8 a.m. with a presentation by area firefighters on their plan to revamp the countys emergency medical services, followed by a work session on EMS from 9 to 11:30 a.m. The commission meets in the fifth floor assembly room of the county courthouse, 315 Court St. The action moves to the fourth floor conference room of the clerk of the circuit court for a joint legislation delegation from noon to 2 p.m. A regular board meeting starts at 3 p.m. in the fifth floor assembly room with the public hearing segment scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. The agenda for the meetings should be available by Oct. 20 at www.pinellascounty.org.Sheriffs office receives patriot awardLARGO The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office received The Patriot Award from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve during an Oct. 7 ceremony at the Sheriffs Administrative Building in Largo. Sheriff Jim Coats accepted the award on behalf of his office. PCSO is being recognized for its support of employees in the Military Reserve and National Guard units. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is a Department of Defense organization. It is a staff group within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs, which is in itself a part of the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The nations Reserve components (referring to the total of all National Guard members and Reserve forces from all branches of the military) comprise approximately 48 percent of our total available military manpower. The National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard conducts an awards program designed to recognize employers who support a strong National Guard and Reserve force. Employers qualify for recognition when they practice leadership and personnel policies that support employee participation in the Guard and Reserve.Summer fertilizer ban endsThe countywide summer ban on the use of nitrogen fertilizers ended Sept. 30 and residents may apply fertilizer containing nitrogen to their lawn and landscape plants. Garden centers in Pinellas County offer a variety of fertilizers that comply with the countys fertilizer ordinance. Products on the store shelves from October through May must contain at least 50 percent of the nitrogen in a slow-release (or timed release) form. These products release nitrogen gradually, nourishing lawns and plants for a longer period of time. They also help keep our environment healthy, since they are more likely to be absorbed by the plants and less likely to run off into waterways when it rains. Too much nitrogen is the biggest source of pollution in our lakes, ponds, Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. October is a good month to fertilize. Gardening experts do not recommend use of fertilizers during the coldest winter months because grass and plants are not actively growing and cannot utilize the nutrients. Fertilizer tips: Fertilize only when you are looking for a particular plant response such as growth, more blooms or to correct a nutritional deficiency. If your plants and grass look healthy, hold off on the fertilizer. Make sure your cold-sensitive plants have been planted in the warmest sites on your property usually south-facing areas protected by walls, fences or evergreen hedges. Better yet, choose plants that will easily tolerate winter temperatures. Weve all learned hard lessons in recent years about the expense of constantly replacing plants killed by winter freeze. Right plant, right place also means taking into account temperature extremes. Reduce irrigation frequency in the fall and winter as plant growth slows. Your lawn only needs watering about once a week in the fall, and once every 10-14 days in the winter. If it rains, dont water! Provide tree shade or cover to guard against radiation freezes that occur on cold, clear, windless nights when heat radiates into the air from plants. Providing a tree canopy helps plants hold the heat they generate and prevent it from escaping into the night sky. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to hold in both heat and moisture during dry winter months, and moderate soil temperatures. Choose eco-friendly mulches like pine straw, pine bark or eucalyptus chips. Dont bag those leaves that fall in the autumn; use them as mulch instead. Avoid pruning in early fall; that extra growth will help protect your plants on chilly nights.

From a personal standpoint the thing that is most frustrating is just knowing how good things could be right now out on the water. Offshore, the stage is set for some amazing kingfishing. Up and down the beach, schools of small fry bait are being ravaged by a combination of small Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and small jack crevalle. This activity has brought the kingfish to within a hundred yards from shore. Last Sunday we anchored up amidst the feeding frenzy and floated out live shad under balloons, It didnt take long to get a bite. While fighting the big king and dodging numerous crab traps along the way we saw multiple kingfish skyrocketing through the air as they fed on the ladyfish and mackerel. After gaffing the 30-pound class fish, the wind had already begun to pick up substantially, forcing us to leave such an awesome bite behind. Our near-shore water temperature is around 75 degrees. The reason I mention this is that all that fry bait and the fish that are feeding on them arent going to like it too much if the water temp drops below 70 degrees, which it might with overnight lows in the 50s expected for the end of the week. Lets just hope we get a good warming trend for the weekend and stabilize that water temperature somewhere above 72 degrees. The clock is ticking on a very short gag grouper season. Not being able to get offshore for a week or two at a time is pretty depressing. Those who have been able to go claim the fishing is very good for gags in 50 to 80 feet. With the declining water temperatures look for more and more of the qualitysized gags to show up in even shallower depths. Big pinfish are still the bait of choice for the hard fighting gags. Inshore Spanish mackerel is the hot bite. Schools of Spanish have been hanging around the passes and staging up over deep grass flats in 3to 6-feet of water. Chumming with live pilchards has produced nonstop action for as long as you want to keep chumming. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Over the years, Pinellas County commissioners have often said it is better to err on the side of caution when making decisions that affect the health and safety of its citizenry. The problem with the very controversial issue of adding fluoride to the drinking water is there seems to be no clear consensus on whether it is more harmful to continue the practice or to take it away. People are passionate with their opinions and beliefs based on what they all say are facts, based on science. The problem is science supports both sides depending on the source. The American Dental Association, along with local groups, swear by the good that has resulted since the 1940s when government began adding fluoride supplements to public drinking water supplies. They believe the practice of fluoridation has reduced dental decay saving millions of dollars on dental care, as well as pain and suffering of the population, especially children. They say that without fluoride in the water, many would be affected adversely. The three commissioners who support continuing water fluoridation also are concerned about potential adverse effects from discontinuing the practice. We applaud their concern. Much progress has been made by county government to provide dental care to those in need who cant afford a dentist. On the other side, we cant fault the four commissioners who believe there could be something to the scientific evidence that says fluoride could be a potential health threat. It is simply a matter of disagreement on what is best. All the commissioners say the publics best interest is the impetus for their decision. We believe them. Commissioners are offended by talk that politics or money influenced their votes, and we see no real evidence that either issue was at the forefront of any decision. It all boiled down to science, the interpretation and the source. Valid arguments were made on both sides as to whom we should believe. Some scoffed at the very idea that information found on the Internet should be taken seriously. Some scoffed at the notion that studies funded by big business or even the government could be trusted over those by independent researchers. One attorney warned that lawsuits surrounding fluoride in public drinking supplies would someday make those about asbestos, lead and tobacco seem small in comparison. The future will tell if that prediction will come true. Words, numbers and facts, depending on the source, have long been used to sway public opinion. Lay people those of us without the expertise to understand complex scientific findings must rely on the good will of scientists, researchers, doctors and other experts to present the truth and do whats right when it comes to the good of the people. We all know that words, numbers and facts can be skewed to one side or the other. Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services changed their recommendations about how much fluoride should be added to drinking water supplies. They now advocate less, rather than more. The reasons are multi-fold involving the availability of fluoride supplements the public can buy and the increased occurrence of fluorosis, a build-up of excess fluoride in the body that causes mottling of the teeth and potential long-term effects to the bones. History shows that decisions made in the past oftentimes must be reversed as evidence comes forward of unforeseen consequences. Is that the case with fluoride? It is important to point out that neither the EPA nor the HHS advocate stopping the practice of fluoridation. In the grand scheme of things, Pinellas County has been putting additional fluoride in its drinking water for only a short time about seven years. People have been for and against the practice since it was proposed in 2003. The reasons vary. Some object to the type of fluoride used, which is not the same as that which occurs naturally. The two types used to fluoridate the water are byproducts of certain industries, such as fertilizer manufacturers. Those who want it out of the water believe it to be a poison or neurotoxin. Some simply say it is the right of the people to decide what is best for their own wellbeing and that the government should do nothing more than what is necessary to keep the water clean. Government officials argue they have the responsibility to do what is best for the publics health and safety. Perhaps both sides are correct in this assumption; however, too many dont do what is best for them due to lack of knowledge or willingness. Others simply cant afford it. Is it the governments role to put additives in the water supply to make up for those who wont or cant take care of their teeth? The supporters of fluoridation believe so. Was it the right decision to take fluoride out of this countys water supply? At least four commissioners and a lot of others think it is the best course of action. Depending on the source, both sides can be proven right or wrong. There seems to be no clear path that says a particular direction will do more or less harm. It may take another 60 years before enough proof on either side can be presented to know the truth about fluoride. Perhaps as more evidence comes forward, county commissioners can take up the subject again. The public elects people they believe will represent their best interests. We see no signs that the county commission is not doing its job. Its simply a matter of disagreement about the right direction. It all comes down to the source. As I begin this column, on Oct. 10, the Occupy Wall Street movement has spread to dozens of American cities. By the time this sees print, on Oct. 20, the wave of discontent may have dissipated. Or it could grow into something much larger. Its good to see citizens take part in a peaceful uproar. It means that apathy and despair have not yet won the day. Its also rewarding to see slogans and placards lofted by the protesters rather than smoke from gunfire and explosions. Violence can bring change, but usually the chief victims are the poor and powerless. Right now the OWS people have few, if any, leaders. I havent seen evidence of precise goals. This augurs poorly for the assemblage. Whether its cleaning out the garage or forging a different government, knowing exactly what youre aiming for is important. Otherwise things tend to fall apart, with little achieved. And thats what happens to most street protests: with time, they fade away. The Establishment whether its Wall Street, Congress, the Pentagon or the White House knows this. Patience tends to prevail over passion. I hope this wont happen with OWS. The peaceful protesters who have gathered in the downtowns of American cities are merely harbingers indicators that (along with other problems) something is radically wrong with how our countrys financial institutions operate. If all the protesters were asked, Exactly what are you angry about? Id bet that 60 percent would reply, Im mad because the crooks on Wall Street are still at large. They should be identified, tried and punished. So lets ask: How can that be done? In this era of the Internet, Facebook, Tweeting, satellites, government wiretaps and hundreds of other communications devices, anyone can find out almost anything about everyone else. Thats a glittering generality, but it contains a lot of truth. With such information-gathering tools readily at hand, whats to stop us from searching out and identifying every Wall Street manipulator, swindler, con artist, liar and trickster who helped bring about the economic collapse of 2008? Surely the employment records are still there to tell us who were the top executives, board members, traders, number shufflers and other specialists who devised the illicit financial schemes and then carried them out. With help from insiders (and there will be hundreds of honest Wall Street workers whod love to see their bad guy colleagues brought to justice), a database of offenders and likely suspects could be gradually constructed. As the searchlights of righteous inquiry scanned over the sewers of financial corruption (both past and present), the snakes and rats could be identified and then turned over to appropriate authorities for prosecution. Among the culprits would be the regulatory watchdogs public and private who were supposed to sniff out wrongdoers but failed to do so. Of course, all of this gathering of names and evidence would be easier said than done. A first step would be to accept and practice the premise of innocence before being proved guilty. Just because Jeremy R. Klingham III was a mortgage broker for Wells Fargo in 2005, no one should assume that he was one of thousands of loan officers who knowingly gave money to people and companies who could not possibly repay the loans. Even so, Klinghams files should be examined. Should a wholesale listing of Wall Street personnel be posted on the Web, along with data about their salaries, bonuses, promotions and connections to questionable transactions? Wouldnt this be invasion of privacy? Perhaps. But if taxpayers money was used to bail out a bank or insurance company after the 2008 collapse, why shouldnt taxpayers be given full information on that company, its personnel and its practices? Others will object to the Wall Street Investigation (for lack of a better name) as an example of Big Brotherism, of witch-hunting and illicit spying. To render such an objection laughable, we need only to look at the security measures enacted by Congress within weeks of 9/11. Ordinary citizens are now subject to eyes in the sky, wiretaps on every phone, and cameras at every intersection and public building. Tomorrow if you scratch your behind while strolling Indian Rocks Beach, you can be sure the FBI, NSA and CIA will be aware of which hand you used. Its time for sophisticated tools of scrutiny to be directed instead at the villains of Wall Street. Im not sure how the OWS movement can be neatly summarized, or what it means. But one possibility seems obvious: societys pendulum has swung too far toward plutocracy. Once again its time for the little guys to apply their muscle.

They couldnt find Morningside with Map Quest or GPS; they thought we needed a makeover. Hah! Thats like saying that gorgeous George Clooney needs one. The one-mile stretch of Harn Blvd., 83 traffic signs and 43 planters, has left us with three roundabouts and dangerous challenges every day. Everyone thinks yield means someone else will stop. The twoyear mess left us with plants and shrubs that the city wont be able to maintain. Our children can no longer ride their bikes, except in the middle of the road. I say a prayer each morning for them all to be safe. As for the 10 speed bumps, lets just say we all keep the mechanic very busy repairing our cars. We need to elect community leaders from each neighborhood and forget the politicians that dont have a clue. Let us take our city back.Pauline Faulk Clearwater I have a modest proposal on what to do with any legislator or bureaucrat or other slitherer who attempts to abolish the Florida Public Service Commission. Skin them alive. Though not perfect, the PSC is one of the best regulatory agencies that I have known since I have been covering government. The agency recently helped me resolve a complaint against a utility company. About 1 1/2 years ago, I decided to get rid of my telephone service, my land line, as it is called. As many people I know, I was tired of getting calls, particularly at dinner time, from people who wanted my money or who tried to brainwash me into voting for some chiseler. Discontinuing the telephone service also would save me money. I called the company and spoke to a woman who asked if I wanted to have my service placed on vacation status, in case I changed my mind. She explained that the service would be free that it would expire in nine months, if memory serves me right. I agreed, in case for some reason I decided I wanted to have my dinner interrupted again by phone calls. Several months later, in April, I received a bill from the company for $27.31. I was livid. I did not tell anybody from the company that I wanted to reactivate the service. So I called the company from my cell phone and explained to the representative that I received a bill for a service I didnt want. She told me that I should have told the company not to activate my service. At no time did the person I originally spoke to tell me I must do that, I said. The company agent, or whatever her title is, refused to waive the charges. I have no telephone and have made no phone calls. Why am I being billed? I asked. Had I any inkling that I had to contact the company to terminate service to avoid the charges, I never would have agreed to have my service placed on vacation status. Frustrated, I said I would file a complaint against the company with anybody who would listen to me. Is there anything else I can help you with, Mr. Germond? she said for the sixth time. I decided to file a complaint with the PSC, figuring I had nothing to lose. I have no land line and have made no phone calls and yet I get a bill? I wrote. This is wrong. Please give me some guidance here. If I have to pay the bill, I will. But regulations should be in place requiring utilities to notify customers that the status of their service will change before their accounts are activated. Four days later, I received a letter from the PSC saying that the utility will attempt to resolve the matter with me. The PSC said matters such as these are usually resolved quickly and effectively, requiring no further commission intervention. A couple of weeks later I received another letter; a representative of the company said that the employee who put my service on vacation status possibly may not have informed me that I had to call to terminate my service to avoid being billed. The company also gave me a refund for the charges. Thank you, PSC. If the PSC is viewed as a thorn in the backsides of private utilities so be it. Efforts to dismantle the agency, as former PSC Chairman E.L. Jacobs Jr. said on cleanen ergy.org., send the message that the views of the working and bill-paying public count for nothing. I have a hunch that foes of the PSC will continue their attempts to sink their fangs into the agency. Rattlesnakes dont commit suicide, as the quote from Mississippi Burning goes. At least I dont get phone calls from them anymore.A bill-paying guy makes his case EDITORIALThe fluoride controversyOpinions vary on whether to continue using it in water 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.com Publisher/President: Dan Autrey firstname.lastname@example.org Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli email@example.com Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey firstname.lastname@example.org Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier email@example.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond firstname.lastname@example.orgProduction Manager: David Brown email@example.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter firstname.lastname@example.org Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure email@example.com Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond firstname.lastname@example.org Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd email@example.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl firstname.lastname@example.org Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

Call for details 727-421-2099 100611 The term bounty land is somewhat self-explanatory. Essentially it signifies tracts of land that were given by governments for service in the military. Sometimes it was given as partial payment for service, and sometimes it was given to incentivize men to volunteer for service. Using land in such a way dates back to colonial times and even before. Land, when it was in plentiful supply, could be a powerful incentive. In this column I want to introduce the subject to you, but to do it justice, I will spread the information across several articles. Just remember, if you had an ancestor who served in the military from 1776 to 1858, there is the possibility that he was involved with bounty lands. Of course, when land was granted, there was some sort of paper trail created, and in that trail lies the genealogical value of bounty lands. The information that awaits us can prove military service of an ancestor, and it can provide information on his heirs if they are the ones to ultimately claim the land. It can locate a soldier as belonging to a particular unit, locate a veteran geographically after the conflict, and lead to the discovery of a land patent or deed that describes the location of the land in detail. Bounty lands as used by the United States date to the Revolutionary War itself. They are typically associated not only with that war, but also the War of 1812 and the Mexican War. The practice was discontinued in 1858. During the Revolutionary War, bounty land was awarded both by individual states and the federal government. The states were tasked by the federal government to provide numbers of soldiers to serve in the federal army, called the Continental Line. States used bounty land to encourage such enlistments and to reward such service. The federal government also gave bounty land for such service. With the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, veterans or their heirs could receive land from both levels of government; that is, they could double dip. The individual states could essentially do anything they wanted with their land, so some awarded lands to their citizens for compensation other than Continental Line service. However, those awards were relatively few in comparison.It should also be mentioned that, as it turns out, most of the veterans of this period sold their rights to bounty land to speculators rather than claim the land themselves. Whether or not a state awarded bounty land to its soldiers of the Continental Line really depended on what land the state had to give away. Remember that the definitions of state boundaries were much different during the postrevolutionary period than they are today. Virginia, for example, included the present state of Kentucky, and South Carolina included the present state of Tennessee. Some states had the advantage of having such trans-Appalachian territory at their disposal, and some did not. By the early 1800s, most of the states had ceded their unused western lands to the federal government, and it is from those holdings that federal-level bounty lands were selected. Primarily they were in reserves in what are now Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Bounty lands for service in the War of 1812 present a less muddled picture than that for the Revolutionary War because the states did not get into the picture. The federal government selected reserves in the present states of Michigan, Arkansas, and Illinois (the vast majority of bounties came from Illinois). Michigan was later replaced by Missouri instead. Bounty land for the War with Mexico could be claimed from any public land in the country rather than from specially designated reserves. The award of bounty lands as military incentives ceased in 1858, and 1863 was the last date that awardees could take possession of those lands. So there were no federal bounty lands associated with Civil War service. The Homestead Act of 1862 made public land readily available and negated its use as an incentive for military service. Print sources for information about bounty lands abound in good genealogy collections. Titles such as Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants Awarded by State Governments by Bockstruck, and the four volumes of the Federal Land Series by Smith are but two examples. Online sources include the Bureau of Land Management, The National Archives and Records Administration, Ancestry and Fold3 (formerly Footnote). These are the big ones, but only some of the many sites you might find if you do an Internet search. I hope this brief background entices you to do some digging into the subject on your own. In future columns I will go into more detail about the process of how bounty lands were claimed, some of the specific tracts of land involved (both at federal and state level), and how to dig into some of those sources. The Pinellas Genealogy Society also offers a free class on the subject. You can see when it is scheduled, along with other classes that may be of interest to you at www.flpgs.org/ classes.aspx.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

Accompanying The Most Rev. Robert Lynch at the 4 p.m. mass will be Monsignor Brendan Muldoon, pastor of the parish, fellow priests who have served at the parish, civic officials and community ministers. St. Jerome is located at 10895 Hamlin Blvd. Maintaining its pyramid outer structure, the renovated layout of the church will have a new entrance. Other new features include a special chapel for the tabernacle, which will be open day and night for private prayer and meditation, a Marian shrine, baptistery and center aisle. Relics of St. Jerome and other saints, once embedded in the former altar, will now be displayed at the entrance of the reconfigured church. The congregation has celebrated mass for the past nine months in the 1971 era parish center, renamed the Easter Chapel. The challenge has been to leave ones beloved place of worship for over 30 years, maintain parishioners, and continue to raise funds for the much needed facelift to the interior of the building, a St. Jerome press release said. The church was established on Jan. 4, 1956 in Indian Rocks Beach. The parish bought 20 acres on Hamlin Boulevard in 1957, the current site of the parish.St. Jerome Catholic Church celebrates renovations Dec. 17 Graphic courtesy of ST.

PETERSBURG What happens when two sisters decide to go into business together in their hometown? If you ask Nancy Fordham and Kathryn Alvarez (maiden name Blankenship) theyll tell you success, expansion, educational excellence, community service, and a school that is as much a calling as a business. Fordham and Alvarez own Loraines Academy at 1012 58th St. N., which is in the Tyrone Gardens Shopping Center in St. Petersburg. They are currently celebrating the schools 45th anniversary with the grand opening of a new, luxury 4,000-square-foot spa, renovations to the old campus, discounts, specials and events for customers, and the addition of several new employees. Fordham and Alvarez grew up in Indian Rocks Beach, and attended Seminole High School and the University of South Florida. Their dad was a local builder renowned for his masonry work on such landmarks as the Anona Methodist Church and The Church of the Isles. They both still live in the area. Kathryn is married to Rick Alvarez, an independent investor and consultant and she is the mother of Alexis and Reid, both college students. Nancy is married to retired insurance professional, Alan Fordham, and she is the mother of David, a local engineer. Fordham received a degree in elementary education from USF and specialized in early childhood development at Madeira Elementary. In the late 1970s she was approached by her friend, Nina Light, to buy Loraines Academy from founder Loraine Pils Luyten. I was a teacher and this was just another way to teach, said Fordham. Both sisters became licensed cosmetologists and about 12 years later, Fordham bought into the business when Light decided to pursue other interests. Today Loraines boasts about 200 students enrolled at any one time. The school is nationally recognized and enjoys consistent high rankings by regulatory agencies. It has been named one of the top woman owned businesses in the Tampa Bay Area by the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Loraines offers a wide variety of skin care services including facials and microdermabrasion, as well as massage, body wraps, hair and nail care and other services. The public is invited to visit and enjoy these services performed by students and overseen by professional instructors. Imagine $25 massages, $7 brow waxings, $15 facials, $50 microdermabrasions, and $5 haircuts, said Fordham. The schools motto is, Theres Only One Loraines. Alvarez, who holds a bachelors degree in business and finance, credits her expertise to years at Florida Power and Light, Sun Bank Corporation, and construction management positions around the area before she joined Loraines. She also owned a glass gallery and was a professional singer. Loraines Academy celebrates 45 years in businessBody and Soul to openSEMINOLE Body and Soul, a bookstore and healing center, will host a grand opening Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 26-29, at 6212 Seminole Blvd. Body and Soul will offer classes on Alzheimers care-giving, Reiki, beginning meditation and prayer, sales, relationships, money and presence.

The clinic, sponsored by Hartke, will last approximately two hours and is free. Wooten is an acclaimed bass player, author and educator. At the clinic, Wooten will discuss his view on music as a language, one that can be integrated into spirituality and nature, as described in his award-nominated book The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music. He also will demonstrate some of his techniques the bass guitar. He will discuss his gear and rigging. Primarily, the clinic will be driven by the questions asked by audience members. Wooten is most recognized for his contributions to Bla Fleck and the Flecktones. However, his solo efforts and his collaborations with folks such as Stanley Clarke, Bruce Hornsby, India Arie, and Dave Matthews have led him to be regarded as one of the greatest bass players of all times, revered by his fans and his peers alike for his uncanny skills on bass. Wooten is in the Tampa Bay area with Bla Fleck and the Flecktones and will perform at Jannus Live Oct. 20.Mo Ziki event to benefit YMCA programLARGO Mo Ziki will host a charity lunch and dinner Monday, Oct. 24, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., at 10801 Starkey Road.
