Support strong for street festivalsBusinesses rally behind events held on First Avenue Southwest By TOM GERMOND LARGO Downtown business owners and others made emotional pleas to city commissioners Nov. 15 to continue allowing street festivals to be held along First Avenue Southwest. The discussion stemmed from a couples complaints at the meeting about parking and other issues affecting their properties. Several commissioners said they have heard positive comments about First Friday events and hoped that the parking dispute can be resolved. I have heard nothing but good things about (the street festivals), said Commissioner Robert Murray. Jane Wollowick and her husband, Herbert, own property along First Avenue Southwest, including a parking lot, and other parcels in the area. Jane Wollowick said one of her business tenants called and said she was unable to leave the Wollowicks parking lot during the Crab and Seafood Festival Nov. 12 because it was completely filled with vehicles blocking the driveway entrance and exit. Although they have towing signs on all sides, she said, it seems vendors were told they could park on the lot, Wollowick said. She said there is no possibility of a fire engine or ambulance entering First Avenue Southwest if it were needed. We suggest the amount of people, crowds and vendors is difficult and dangerous, she said. Herbert Wollowick said there were other areas of the city better suited for the events and asked that the permit for the festivals be rescinded on the grounds that they are unsafe and are a serious liability to their stores, their parking lot and their property. Jennifer Lantry, owner of OShys Irish Tap House, which is at First Avenue Southwest and the ClearwaterLargo Road, said the parking issue stemmed from a misunderstanding. Originally we had their permission for the vendors to park in there and for some reason now we dont, she said. I apologized for the inconvenience and I assured See FESTIVALS, page 4A Moratorium extended on pain clinics County ofcials trying to combat pill mills .. Page 7A. Dunedin Celtic Festival will be held Nov. 19 at Highlander Park .. Page 1B.Seven Nations brings its rollicking form of music to Dunedin Volume XXXIV,No. 18 November 17, 2011 www.TBNweekly.com By TOM GERMONDLARGO Ray Buchholz never dreamed that he would donate 100 gallons of blood. He was honored on Nov. 11 11/11/11 for recently donating his 111th gallon. Ill try to keep doing it as long as I stay healthy, he said. Buchholz, 66, of Dunedin was recognized along with two donors who reached the 100-gallon mark on Veterans Day at Florida Blood Services Clearwater Donor Center. Since 1942, Florida Blood Services spokesman Dan Eberts said, the blood center has had more than 1 million donors. Some come back, some dont. Out of over a million people, we only had up until today, nine people give 100 gallons or more. Im no mathematician but thats not a large percentage out of a million, Eberts said. Buchholzs first whole donation was in 1980 at St. Anthonys Blood Bank, A Vietnam War veteran and sergeant in the U.S. Air Force from 1963 through 1967, he became a platelet donor in 1985 after reading an article about chemotherapy patients and their need for blood and platlets, Eberts said. I started as a blood donor because it seemed like a good thing to do and I was healthy and fortunate, Buchholz said. It seemed like there were unfortunate people out there who could use the blood. One-hundred gallon donor Joanne Gauzens of Dunedin started donating blood when her husband dared her that if she did it, then he would, too. Their first donation was at their churchs blood drive where they donated side-byside holding hands. After that Joanne became a regular whole blood donor and when she saw donors on the automated machines, inquired about what they were doing. When she learned that platelet donations help cancer patients thats all they had to say, Eberts said. Joannes sister died of leukemia when Joanne was only 12 years old, leaving behind a 9-month-old son. Her motto is that if she can help prolong someones life so they can see their children grow up, then she has helped in her sisters name, Eberts said.

Pecori, along with 13 others, packed and headed to the mountain for five full days of climbing, July 23 to 27. Prior to conquering one of the tallest mountains in the world, Pecori started training by climbing mountains in her home country, Venezuela. She visits her mother, four siblings and her cat for three months a year and goes back for Christmas. Typically, she would go to visit family and catch up with old friends, now she adds climb a mountain or two to the schedule. She first came to the United States in 1993, as part of a YMCA exchange program. She worked with the Y for seven years, was a security officer for the Tampa Bay Rays and now just focuses on her new hobby and her other interest, interior decorating. At 49 years old, she says she feels fit and great. She was always very active, playing basketball and tennis with her siblings growing up and now with her friends in the area, she said. After deciding she wanted to mountain climb, she started running on the beach and the Pinellas Trail to train. Once she completed her first mountain in Venezuela she was hooked, and she has climbed four mountains so far. It was like my body just kept asking for more mountains, Pecori said. Its an addiction to me now. Venezuelan climber and Pecoris friend, Alfredo Autiero, mentioned the Kilimanjaro trip to Pecori during one of her visits earlier this year and she couldnt wait to start preparing. She stocked up on winter jackets and pants, proper footwear, sunglasses and other sup-Largo woman climbs Mount KilimanjaroMaria Pecori, shown on Mount Kilimanjaro, has climbed four mountains.It was like my body just kept asking for more mountains.

Not a cheap hobby, Pecori admitted, but she has been reaching out for local sponsors, such as the Rays. She received jackets with the Rays logo that she wore on the trip and had some help from her family, her biggest sponsor, as well. Between the local donations and her mother buying her the plane ticket to Africa, things were falling into place for the climb. The first day of the trip, the group, led by African guides, climbed for seven hours until they got to the first camp. When they reached each stop they stretched, hydrated, ate and sometimes slept but for no longer than three hours at a time. They snacked on popcorn, pancakes, coffee and chocolates, random dietary choices for athletes, Pecori said. The guides took care of them, making sure they were warm enough and had enough to eat and drink during the trip, Pecori said. The weather was 60 degrees, chilly compared to the hot, Florida summer weather she left behind, she said. Once they reached the first stop, around 8 p.m., they slept until 10:30 p.m., got up and climbed from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. There were seven stops total, some like the first took up to seven hours to reach, and others took about three. The climb took 45 hours, with almost no illnesses or fellow climbers having to leave the trail. After the climb, the group stayed in a hotel, where she took the best, longest shower shes taken in years, See KILIMANJARO, page 4AENTERTAINMENT Baby dolphin lives a life of tormentVidalia has been entangled in fishing line since July.

Not taking an exotic trip or missing visits to family members might top the list. Your list might even include not running a marathon. One of the biggest regrets may be not telling a loved one how much you care. One thing is for sure: The more you enjoy life and prepare for the unexpected, the fewer regrets you may have. While no one can possibly do everything on a lifetime to-do list, there are plenty of ways to show people you care. One way is to make sure your family has the financial means to continue living their current lifestyle if you are no longer around. Life insurance is one way to do just that. A strong economic foundation includes adequate life insurance coverage; enough to cover a mortgage, college tuition or outstanding debts. There are many online sites, including statefarm.com, that provide calculators to determine your life insurance needs. A qualified insurance professional can help you choose a policy to meet your needs and fit your budget. Once a policy is in place, you can revisit it, especially during different life events, to make certain the coverage is still appropriate. Knowing you have provided for your loved ones will give you peace of mind so you can enjoy doing the things youve always wanted to do.To contact Katherine call 727-447-8989 or find her online: kjonesagency.comEmbrace Life, No Matter WhatBy: Katherine Jones State Farm Agent 111711 $20EACH No appointment necessary1507 Gulf Blvd. #A Indian Rocks Beach727-596-9156111711Matt Facarazzo, D.V.M.

FESTIVALS, from page 1Athem I would block off the access to their property so there would be no further issue, she said. She said she was at the meeting to keep the festivals on First Avenue and ask for the citys continued support. We all work very hard to support our community, she said, and our local businesses have accomplished a great deal in the short span of six months, she said. She said many businesses and residents have thanked her for bringing life to the area. These festivals are not pocket profiting, she said, her voice choking with emotion. Its a profit to me to see all of us together, she said, holding hands and working these festivals, and supporting our businesses, supporting our town and bringing people from all over to this area. Anne Buck, co-owner of the Deli Diva at 707 First Ave. SW. in Largo, which is next to the parking lot at issue, said she has been at the First Friday events since their inception, which was July 1. I cant tell you the number of people, residents who have come up and thanked us, she said. Its brought the city together like nothing I have ever seen. She said that previous efforts to launch similar street parties had failed. Jennifer has done it, she said. If you take this away, I think there is going to be a lot of residents upset. Jay Dingman, co-owner of the Barley Mow Brewing Co. at 518 W. Bay Drive, said he was invited to participate in a First Friday event before the business opened last week which was huge for us to get our name out there and let people know we were coming. The seafood festival Nov. 12 helped the business, and we will take all the help we can get, he said. Im sure its a challenge to keep everybody happy, Dingman said. I think in the long run its a positive thing for downtown, and I would like to see more of this and be a part of this as it continues to grow. City officials are addressing some of the concerns. City Manager Mac Craig met with Wollowicks, and acknowledged that the Wollowicks do have a problem with people parking on their property. The owners can have vehicles towed that are parked illegally on their property, and Craig thinks such issues will be resolved. Craig said he will talk with Fire Chief Michael Wallace about emergency vehicle access to First Avenue Southwest during the festivals. Commissioner Woody Brown said First Friday is very family friendly and its a good thing for downtown. He said that he hopes that event coordinators can resolve the misunderstanding over parking issues because the festivals dont cost taxpayers money, are run by a private group and are doing better than most of the efforts the city has supported in the past.4A Leader, November 17, 2011TREASURE ISLAND All it takes is a pile of sand, some buckets of water and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece at least for eight master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the 3rd annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Professional Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival Nov. 17-20. The top four sculptures and a peoples choice sculpture will be awarded more than $10,000 in cash prizes. The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the worldclass level is the big appeal, supplemented by the giant sponsor sculpture created by Treasure Islands own Meredith Corson of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors. The event features a beach food court, an arts and crafts marketplace and three days of live music. After the sun sets, the lights go up, when country singer and American Idol top-3 finalist Danny Gokey takes the stage at 8:30 p.m. on Friday. Opening for Gokey at 6:30 p.m. will be Sunza Beaches and the Roadhouse Rockers. Saturday, the biggest day of the event, includes fireworks on the beach at 9 p.m., the Masters Cup awards presentation and an all-out party starting at 3 p.m. with electroacoustic blends of country, folk and classic pop from Have Gun, Will Travel, southern rockers Mojo Gurus, and The Rocket Man Show starring Rus Anderson as Elton John. The event continues Sunday with the Sanding Ovations Jazz Beach Brunch, followed by Florida folk music with WMNFs Pete Gallagher, Sarasota Slim and the Charlie Morris Band. Produced by the City of Treasure Island Parks and Recreation Department, and sponsored in part by Land Shark Lager, Sanding Ovations is free and open to the public. Parking is available on the beach at 112th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard for $10. Beach Brunch tickets are available by calling 547-4575, ext. 237.

Treasure Island backs off beach ownership issueTREASURE ISLAND As far as city leaders are concerned, the ownership of the beach immediately west of Caddys on the Beach is now a moot point. City commissioners voted unanimously to not move forward on determining the issue Nov. 1 following a presentation by Sarasota attorney David Levin and threats of a lawsuit from a team of lawyers hired by Caddys owner Tony Amico. The debate over private vs. public ownership of the beach from 87th to 91st avenues to the Gulf side of the high water mark started July 19 when former City Commissioner Ed Gayton raised the question to the City Commission. Gayton was prompted by an incident earlier in July when he said Caddys personnel refused to allow a beach patron to cross the Caddys portion of the beach while carrying alcoholic beverages. Gayton argued that its public land and nobody should be stopped for walking across that stretch of the beach. The issue was further discussed at an Aug. 2 workshop when city attorney Maura Kiefer suggested getting a legal opinion from Levin who specializes in beach ownership and beach property line matters. Levin presented his opinion Nov. 1 and, in a nutshell, said all lands westward of the high water mark are public lands. Why is the city involved in this? Amico asked. We already went to court and I was awarded a deed. Amico purchased the nine lots in question in 2003 but was later told the deeds he held were void because the land was previously underwater and under the control of the Trustees of the states Internal Improvement Fund. Under terms of a statute passed in 1951 by the Florida Legislature, the trustees were given vested title to tidal water bottoms, including all islands, sand bars and shallow banks. Amico sued the state Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund over the issue. A March 2009 settlement gave him a clear deed and the right to operate on the land. However, Levin said it was his opinion that since the land was originally deeded to another family when the site was under water, it could not be sold and was still public land. This whole proceeding is highly inappropriate, said David Smolker, an attorney representing Amico. How would you feel if someone came to you to tell you that you do not own your house? We are defending our title to property here and that is wrong. The correct place to do that is in a court of law. Smolker went on to say the deed could only be challenged by clear presumptive evidence in a court of law and you, ladies and gentlemen, cannot do that. Smolker added that Levins opinion was so far off base, theres no evidence they looked at the chain of title. This whole exercise should stop here, Smolker said. Smolkers partner, Ethan Lowe, followed up by saying any further action by the city would result in a lawsuit. Gayton said the issue is a question of who owns the lands seaward of the mean high water line. The question is beach nourishment, Gayton said. We all know the state will not nourish private beaches. Mayor Bob Minning said the City Commission is not trying to make a ruling on the issue. We asked for a (legal) opinion and we got it, Minning said. Were damned if we do and damned if we dont. Its a question of whether this land lies with the state. If somebody has a complaint over ownership of that property, they should take it up with (the Florida Department of Environmental Protection). Bob McClureSix vie for Madeira city manager postMADEIRA BEACH Six finalists have been announced in the citys search for a new manager. Recruiter Colin Baenziger reported there were 149 applicants for the job. Thirty-five listed recent management experience in Florida, he said. Half of the candidates who made the final cut are currently employed in Florida. The rest come from Ohio, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Most appear to have the combination of managerial and public works experience the city wants in hiring a city manager that also will have public works responsibilities. Gary Clough is currently public services director of Casper, Wyo. In that position, he manages over 200 fulltime employees, 50 seasonal positions, and has a budget of $68 million. Clough has held that position for the past four years. Cloughs previous jobs include nine years as assistant village manager of Wellington, Fla., during a period when the municipality grew from a population of 25,000 to 65,000. He also served in city engineer positions early in his career. Rick Conner holds the dual position of city manager and public works director in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., a Miami suburb. Prior to coming to Florida in 2007, Conner was the city engineer of El Paso, Texas, from 200407, and director of public works in Nashville, Tenn., beginning in 2002. Shane Benjamin Crawford of Lake Geneva, Wis., has been deputy county administrator of Walworth County (population 102,000, budget $160 million) since 2004. That position incorporates public works and intergovernmental relations, and also includes supervision of the countys central purchasing department, according to Crawfords resume. Crawford served previously as county administrator of Buffalo County, Wis. (pop. 13,500). Finalist James McBeath has a combination of public and private sector experience. He has been service director of Louisville, Ohio, since 2001, and previously served 22 years as utilities manager for the Republic Steel Corp. in Canton, Ohio. His experience is heavy in management of water systems and wastewater treatment facilities. While at Republic Steel, he managed a substantial downsizing and workforce reduction of that facility. Danielle Pitt Slaterpryce has held a variety of municipal jobs, mostly in public works management and civil engineering, before joining the private sector in January 2010 as a senior project manager. She attended college and has worked in Florida during her entire career. Slaterpryce describes herself as fiscally responsible and a consensus and team builder. One of the principal responsibilities during her last public sector job was the preparation and management of an annual operating budget (approximately $23 million) including a five-year capital improvement program. She has never been a city manager. Judy Whitis describes herself as a decisive leader with excellent communication and interpersonal skills a consensus builder and dedicated team player. A resident of Panama City, Whitis has spent the majority of her career at Callaway, Fla. (population 14,000, budget $33 million), progressing from assistant city clerk to city clerk and, for the past 14 years, city manager. She has no direct public works management experience. Wayne AyersMoney approved for capital improvementsBELLEAIR BEACH The City Council approved an ordinance adopting an updated five-year capital improvement plan which calls for spending $380,000 on projects related to street resurfacing, stormwater system projects and improvements to city parks. A 7-0 vote in favor of the ordinance came at the Nov. 7 council meeting. The amount had been reduced from $470,000 set aside in an earlier plan. The largest project is a $194,000 street resurfacing program which involves the asphalt resurfacing of Sixth Street from Gulf Boulevard/Harbor Drive to Fifth Street/Gulf Boulevard; Seventh Street from Gulf Boulevard to Harbor Drive; 20th Street from Gulf Boulevard to Bayshore Drive; 21st Street from Gulf Boulevard to Bayshore Drive; Bayshore Drive; and Donato Drive. Another $110,000 will be spent to replace the citys valley curb system in order to provide proper street drainage and maintain the aesthetic quality of the streets. Curb replacements are planned for Seventh Street, 20th and 21st streets, Bayshore Drive, Donato Drive, Aleta Drive, Louisa Drive and 22nd Street. Improvements are also planned to the citys parks and recreation facilities. The largest expense is $36,500 over the next five years for enhancements to Bayside Park. Replacement of the current ramp and rusted playground equipment is scheduled for 2012-13. In 2015, a new 53-foot ramp going out past the mangroves is scheduled to be built. Docks at the 16th Street and 20th Street parks will be replaced in 2012 and 2013 with composite decking and handrails at a total cost of $16,000. Another $4,000 per year will be spent in Parks and Recreation Board landscaping projects over the coming years. Projects that failed to receive funding in the five-year capital improvement plan include boat access dredging, a feasibility study of the city marina, a gazebo for weddings, etc. on the city hall lawn, and a project to coordinate stormwater drainage improvements and other projects to lessen catastrophic losses during severe storms. Also dropped were improvements to the appearance of the various planter islands in the cul-de-sac turnaround areas that are being damaged by large trucks due to the tight turning radius.

The plans, one being put forth by County Administrator Bob LaSala and the other by a group of firefighters, are both inferior to the current system that has been in place since 1980, Wallace said. Wallaces remarks were part of a presentation he gave on the subject at the Nov. 14 Belleair Bluffs City Commission workshop meeting. Largo provides fire services to Belleair Bluffs. The present county EMS system is working well and does not need to be replaced, despite claims it is no longer sustainable, Wallace told the commission. The new plan backed by the county would cut $10 million in costs, by eliminating firefighter/paramedic jobs and reducing pay. It also would raise average emergency response time from 4.30 minutes to over 7 minutes. Under the county plan, all municipalities would be paid an average cost to provide EMS services. Smaller cities paying less than the average would gain, while larger communities, such as St. Petersburg and Clearwater, would get less money. The firefighters proposal would replace the current Sunstar ambulance transport system with a fire department-based transport. I do not want to take on a mission of non-emergency medical transport. That is not a firefighter mission, Wallace said. While Wallace finds both EMS change proposals lacking compared to the present system, there is a bigger problem to be faced. Both plans are illegal, Wallace contends. A state statute (special act) passed in 1980 created the current countywide EMS system with its single ambulance service. It has specific provisions for funding the countywide system with ad valorem taxes and paying local fire districts for first responder services. The statute defines how the system cannot pay us less or more than what it costs to do business, and we cannot fire ambulance companies, Wallace said. Neither proposal for EMS change falls under the law, he said. Wallace said efforts are under way to change the law, to allow us to pay less and to let the fire departments provide transport. But, he said, neither bill has made it anywhere near the House or Senate. Wallaces solution is to keep the current EMS system, which he believes is significantly better than either alternative. The system now in place is both cost efficient and effective in saving lives, Wallace said. A loss of revenue due to declining property values has caused the county to have to dip into reserves over the past few years to pay for the EMS service. That savings account money will run out next year, Wallace said. His advice is to raise county taxes to fund the system. As the county is at only around one-third of the property tax cap, we should raise taxes a little more to pay for the system, Wallace said. EMS services currently cost the average taxpayer $56 a year, Wallace said. Pinellas County has the highest survival rate (an average 36 percent vs. 10 percent nationwide) of persons going into cardiac arrest than anyplace in the country except Seattle. Wallace believes residents will gladly pay a little more in taxes for a proven superior service. Mayor Chris Arbutine, who served on the county EMS advisory system, said he has learned the ins and outs of EMS funding. He accused LaSala of wanting to dismantle the current EMS system. Legality aside, Arbutine sees problems with both the countys and the firefighters proposals. The county administrator wants to crash the whole system, while the firefighters are going to sneak in and hire 200 more firefighters, he said. Ten million dollars in EMS funding is going away under the county plan, Arbutine said. If residents want emergency response time to stay low, local governments will have to step up and pick up the expense, he said. If additional firefighters are hired under the firefighters plan, were still going to have to have more money, to raise taxes. Arbutine said the citizens need to ask county officials, why any change is going on at all, when we have the best system now? Around Pinellas Around Pinellas KILIMANJARO, from page 1APecori said. They also went on a safari, where they were taken around various parts of Africa to view animals, from elephants to lions. Their stay in the country was ended with locals singing a farewell song in their language, Swahili, and doing traditional dances for their new friends. After her African experience, Pecori said she was excited for the re-release of Lion King in theaters. Kilimanjaro is the mountain shown in the first few shots of the movie, and the characters were named after words in Swahili, Pecori said. She felt like she could relate to the movie and appreciate it more now that she had experienced a piece of African culture. Next, Pecori has her sights on a mountain in Columbia, Cocuy Peak, that she hopes to scale in January. She is also hoping to climb seven other mountains in Venezuela and possibly one in California in July 2012, if she raises the $1,500 she will need to make the trip.Locally, she is planning to participate in local breast cancer awareness activities and run in a marathon Nov. 6. For those interested in climbing, Pecori recommends kicking smoking and drinking, snacking on fruits and veggies, getting as much cardiovascular exercise as possible and trying out local faux mountain climbing arenas to get an idea of the strength required to climb a mountain. After you do this sort of thing, you feel differently about life, Pecori said. Ive been thinking about small things that used to stress me out that dont seem so important anymore. Its life changing. DONORS, from page 1Amember of the Century Donor Club, was a sergeant in the U.S. Army from 1966 to 1968 and he remains active in American Legion Post 119. Beauchamps brother in-law encouraged him to start donating platelets and it has been a competition between the two ever since to see who can give more, Eberts said. The honorees praised FBS staff members for the services they provide donors. Thank you all you wonderful ladies here, Gauzens said. I feel like Im part of your family. Florida Blood Services was started in 1942, said J.B. Gaskins, vice president of donor systems. There was a lack of blood for the war effort, he said. Since then the agency has grown from three rooms in Tampa General Hospital to an entity that serves 42 counties in Florida, Georgia and Alabama and more than 100 hospitals. Florida Blood Services is preparing to merge with two other blood centers in the state. Then it will be the third largest blood banking system in the United States, Gaskins said. We continually support the military with blood and plasma in times of need, said Gaskins, in keeping with a Veterans Day theme for the ceremony. Other Century Donor Club members attended the ceremony at the donor center, which is at 1680 S. Missouri Ave. Consider yourselves elite people, Eberts said. People who have truly made a difference, by doing volunteer work lying down.

Joshua B. Jackson, 27, was charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license. He also received several traffic citations. Jackson told deputies he was recently released from Florida State Prison on early inmate release status. He said he ran from deputies because he knew his license was suspended and he didnt want to go back to prison. According to deputies, the incident started about 3 p.m. when they stopped Jackson at the intersection of Ulmerton Road and 38th Street North for not wearing a seatbelt. When Deputy Jose Camacho, 31, approached Jackson, who was operating a 2009 Dodge Charger, Jackson took off. He pulled his vehicle into Camacho and ran over his foot. Deputies pursued Jackson and employed the Precision Immobilization Technique in the area of Rocky Point and the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Jackson was taken into custody without further incident. Camacho, employed with the Sheriffs Office since 1999, was not injured.Armed robbery suspect lands in jailOLDSMAR An Oldsmar man suspected of robbing two local businesses was arrested at his home Nov. 10 by Pinellas County sheriffs detectives. Christopher B. Davis, 20, 3640 Meriden Ave., was charged with three counts of armed robbery. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater where bond was set at $150,000. Davis is accused of the Oct. 25 robbery of the Auto Zone, 3698 Tampa Road, and the Nov. 10 robbery of Chick-fil-A, 3740 Tampa Road, both in Oldsmar. According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 5:30 a.m. a Chick-fil-A employee arrived at work and opened the back door to the restaurant with his key. He noticed that the door did not immediately close. When he turned around the suspect was standing directly behind him, holding a white handgun, described as an automatic in his right hand, and a knife in his left hand. The robber demanded money and the employee complied. The suspect then fled the area on foot. Using the security video and tips from the public, detectives began to look for a suspect Davis, who has allegedly confessed to the robbery. Detectives also were able to recover an undisclosed amount of money that was taken. After the arrest, detectives linked Davis to the Auto Zone robbery. In that case Davis robbed an Auto Zone employee at gunpoint in the parking lot at around 7 a.m. Davis was positively identified and allegedly confessed to committing the second robbery.Largo man jailed for unlawful sexLARGO A Largo man is in the Pinellas County Jail, charged with one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor. Andre N. Vea, 28, is accused of engaging in sexual activity with a 17-year-old female. According to Pinellas County sheriffs detectives, they were called to the victims residence on Nov. 5 by patrol deputies investigating allegations the teenager had been engaged in sexual activities with the accused since August. The victim told detectives at first the relationship with the suspect was as friends. However, eventually the relationship became sexual. During this time, she stated they were using prescription drugs together. Deputies learned about the relationship after the victim began stealing from her mother to support her addiction. Through their investigation, deputies developed probable cause to arrest Andre Vea, aka, Tony Vea. Vea was arrested at his Largo home on Deborah Lane on Nov. 8. He is being held without bail for violation of parole for three prior convictions of theft charges as well as unlawful sexual activity of a minor. Detectives believe the suspect may have other victims of similar crimes that have not been reported. They are asking anyone with information about the suspect to contact Detective Mark Kolenda of the Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6132, or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers Of Pinellas County Inc., at 1-800-873-TIPS. A Pinellas Park police cruiser went up in flames Nov. 13 near the WingHouse on U.S. 19. The citys fire inspector named faulty wiring as the cause. No officers were injured.Photo courtesy of the PINELLAS PARK POLICE DEPARTMENTPolice cruiser burns after WingHouse fightPINELLAS PARK A Pinellas Park police cruiser went up in flames as an officer broke up a fight near the WingHouse at 7790 U.S. 19 N. on Nov. 13. The fire was caused by an electric wiring issue, said a fire inspector with the citys fire department. No one was injured, but the vehicle was declared a total loss. Pinellas Park Officer Chris Piccione was helping two other officers respond to a fight at the WingHouse at around 1:35 a.m., according to a report by Police Sgt. Gene LaPouttre. A person at the restaurant told the officers that another group was fighting along 76th Avenue, at the south end of the property. Piccione drove his car to the end of the driveway and, along with other officers, dispersed the group. When he returned to his car, Piccione noticed smoke when he opened the door. At first, he thought the fire extinguisher had discharged in the rear of the vehicle, but when he opened the trunk, he saw a small fire that quickly began to grow. Piccione tried to put out the fire with his extinguisher, but the fire continued to consume the trunk area. Officers retrieved the department-issued AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and laptop along with some personal items before the rear of the car was engulfed in flames. Lealman firefighters along with LaPouttre, who was the police shift supervisor at the time, arrived shortly thereafter, and the fire was extinguished. Pinellas Park Fire Inspector Gary Berkheimer responded to determine if the fire had been intentionally set as a result of the fighting at the restaurant. Berkheimer said he believed an electric wiring issue started the fire. The police cruiser, towed from the scene, was a total loss, LaPouttre said. It was valued at about $40,000, said city spokesman Tim Caddell. Juliana A. Torres Police beat Police beat

Thomas McGrady at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Gualtieri, 50, as sheriff Oct. 7 after Jim Coats announced his Nov. 7 retirement. Coats passed the reins to Gualtieri at midnight Nov. 7. Gualtieri began his career with the Sheriffs Office as a detention deputy at the Pinellas County Jail in 1982.

Prescription medications now are the street drug of choice in some states and fingers are pointing at Florida. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Florida doctors and pharmacies purchased 1.1 billion oxycodone pills in the past two years. Florida is known as the OxyExpress, and officials say Tampa is the hub for the pill mills. Oxycodone addiction is the problem that heroin was in the 1970s. The number of crack babies born in the United States these days pales in comparison to the growing number of those born by mothers addicted to prescription drugs. The situation is alarming in Pinellas County, where the number of drug-addicted newborns increased by almost 600 percent since 2005. The county now is No. 1 in the state for its high number of infants born to women addicted to prescription drugs. After listening to a report on the situation from Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services, county commissioners agreed unanimously Nov. 8 to extend the countywide moratorium on pain clinics until 60 days after the conclusion of the state legislative session set to begin in January. Burns said deaths from accidental overdoses of prescription drugs have outpaced those from heroin in the 1970s and crack cocaine in the 1980s. Drug deaths outnumbered traffic fatalities in the United States in 2009, killing 37,485 people. Statewide, the Florida Medical Examiners Commission reported an 8.9 percent increase in deaths caused by prescription drugs from 2009 to 2010. Pinellas County has its own noteworthy numbers. In 2010, 249 people died as the result of prescription drug use, up from 218 in 2009. In comparison, only 17 died from illicit drugs in 2010 and 19 in 2009. From January to October of this year, Pinellas County emergency medical services received 2,055 reports of overdoses from prescription drugs. The problem is having a big effect on the countys youth. From December 2010 to September 2011, 229 children were removed from their home due to prescription drug abuse. From July 2010 to June 2011, 1,507 individuals were treated for prescription drugs in Pinellas and Pasco counties, according to Central Florida Behavioral Health Data. Seventy-one of those individuals were children and 1,157 of 1,507 were treated for addictions to oxycodone. County commissioners put a moratorium on new pain management clinics in place June 7, 2010, or until the state implemented a program to monitor prescription drugs. Since that time, the state has passed laws that Burns said were good steps, including funding the database to track clinics registered with the state and prescription drug use. In addition, clinics can no longer dispense drugs onsite. But the state needs to do more, Burns said. A loophole in the system that focuses monitoring on clinics by the title of the doctor or the practice versus the activity drug dealing needs to be closed. He explained that the problem is not pain management clinics, but high prescribing. Were trying to prevent the pill mills, he said. He presented a list of critical needs the state still needs to address, including recognition of the impact and excessive cost of prescription drug abuse addictions and pill mills. Burns reported some success in countywide efforts to combat the problem thanks to the 2010 ordinance and moratorium. Twelve locations were closed, three citations issued and three warnings. Seven locations were advised not to open as a pain clinic. However, the county needs to do more at least until the state can implement changes to its laws and programs that local officials say are critical to combating the problem. Burns said the Sheriffs Office had been working very hard on the problem, but enforcement continued to be a problem. He advocated proposed amendments to the countys ordinance to help law enforcement, as well as county staff. One change is the title, which is now Prescription Management. The old title was High Prescribing Clinics. References to pain management were amended to say high prescribing health care providers. The clinics still are required to submit an application to do business in the county. The annual fee is $1,500 and the permit is $250. Hours of operation were extended to include Sundays. High prescribing clinics can only operate between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. The clinic must provide ample parking and it must not generate traffic that would interfere with the normal flow. High prescribing clinics must educate their patients on the dangers and proper use of prescription drugs. They must ask female patients if they are pregnant prior to prescribing medications and provide education about the danger of taking drugs while pregnant. Clinics are required to do a patient assessment prior to prescribing to determine possible addiction and mental health needs. Commissioners unanimously approved all amendments except the one to rescind the moratorium on new pain clinics. After hearing the latest information on the problem and staffs perspective on the need for more from the state, Commissioner Karen Seel suggested continuing the moratorium currently in place. This is a horrible, horrible problem, she said. It is an epidemic among our newborns.Pinellas County extends moratorium on pain clinicsfor animals. Janet Skinners black Scottish terrier, Hallie, is a part of the developing mural. Skinner adopted Hallie from Animal Services in 1992, and she was a loved and loving member of the Skinner household for 13 years. Skinner said she views the mural as a perfect was to pay tribute to Hallie. I wanted to remember her, and this captures Hallie and her personality so well, she said. Im so thrilled it came out so nice. Animal Services interim director Will Davis is also thrilled with the donations received from the Pinellas Paws Cause mural project. He said the Animal Services adoption center relies much more on donations made through the Animal Welfare Trust Fund, with county funds being reduced due to budget cuts. This supports the animals and their special needs, and we rely on it for that, Davis said. More places for animal portraits are available on the walls of Animal Services. For those who want to give a pet portrait as a gift, there are gift certificates available. To participate in the program or get more information, email MuralsForMutts@gmail .com or call 902-1671. The Pinellas Paws Cause holiday event will be held at Pinellas County Animal Services on Saturday, Dec. 10, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Pet photos with Santa Paws will be available for a $5 donation to the Animal Welfare Trust Fund. Also, a spot on the Pinellas Paws Cause mural can be reserved for a $100 charge per pet portrait. By WAYNE AYERSLARGO A pet hall of fame, of sorts, is being created at Pinellas County Animal Services. Loving pet owners are having their animals immortalized in lifesize portraits painted by an acclaimed local artist. The resulting mural, Pinellas Paws Cause, is beautifying the stark shelter walls, while the proceeds are used to help homeless animals. The portrait charge is $100, 25 percent of which goes to the Animal Welfare Trust Fund. Mural for Mutts artist Anna Hamilton paints from photographs, bringing her special touch to the pet portraits. Hamiltons Dogedin dog wall in downtown Dunedin has received national acclaim. The Animal Welfare Trust Fund offers basic necessities to keep pets and their families together, as well as providing special needs items that can make the animals up for adoption more comfortable while they wait for permanent homes.

The Electronic Absentee Systems for Elections grant from the Federal Assistance Program was awarded Nov. 10 to a 13-county coalition of supervisors of elections, which includes Pinellas County. Using the system, voters can request, mark and track their absentee ballots electronically. The system will be designed to provide greater online access, automate absentee requests and expedite ballot delivery making the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act voting process more seamless. Speeding up ballot delivery is expected to increase ballot request and return rates of military and overseas voters. We are excited to be able to provide this electronic system for ballot delivery. Providing ballot access to our men and women serving our country overseas is of the utmost importance. We feel it is our duty to do everything we can to protect their right to vote, just as they feel it is their duty to protect ours, Clark said. Members of the Our Mission: Your Vote coalition include Baker, Bay, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Escambia, Leon, Nassau, Okaloosa, Pinellas, Putnam, Sarasota, and Wakulla counties serving nearly every major military installation in Florida. The coalition will begin transmitting ballots electronically to absent military voters and those living overseas during the 2012 election cycle. For more information, contact the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections by calling 464-VOTE.

Susan Cobb and Denny Gibb dont necessarily consider themselves superstitious, yet the number 11, in its own eerie way, made its presence felt once they made the decision to wed. In an impromptu, on-thebeach, shoes-optional, no-invitation necessary ceremony, the Seminole couple, surrounded by a group of 50 friends and family, tied the knot on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at 11th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach. Even the length of the service, led by a friend of Susans, inexplicably timed out to exactly 11 minutes at which point, three Air Force jets happened to fly overhead. According to the newlyweds, they made no conscious effort to choose any particular day as being more auspicious than another on which to get hitched. A string of coincidences involving the number 11 began popping up soon after they decided to wed. We knew we wanted to get married before the end of the year, said Denny, 50, eventually settling on 11 for the date, time and location because as Susan jokes, Its a date you dont forget, and a lot of friends are getting older. For instance, not long ago, Denny, as he often does, came home bearing a dozen roses, but this time, there were only 11 in the bunch as one had apparently gone missing while in transit. When the couple went to the courthouse to obtain their marriage license, they arrived at the building at 1:11 in the afternoon, got in line and grabbed a number, which turned out to be (surprise) 11. In numerology, its a strong number, Susan said, but for her, when it comes to being a couple, she likes the fact the numbers stand side by side and add up to two. The couple who rent an airy, spacious house in Seminole with an expanse of gleaming white tile floor, (we just had it cleaned for the wedding, confesses Susan),Wedding on 11-11-11 is couples formula for successmet three years ago at a local bar and embarked first on a platonic friendship that eventually evolved and progressed. We do a lot together, and were always together, said Denny. Susan, 48, a sunny blonde who laughs easily and works in a real estate office had been single for almost (you guessed it!) 11 years and has two grown daughters who live out of state and four grandchildren. Denny, originally from Pennsylvania, works for a construction company in Pinellas Park, is a divorced father with two sons, ages 22 and 15. In keeping with the couples wish to have a frou-frou free wedding without the usual trappings, the festivities were nonetheless full blown. My girlfriends came together and totally catered to us all throughout the day ... people pitched in, brought hors doeuvres, and our gathering of friends and family was so incredibly beautiful, Susan said. Symbolism and numerology aside, the couple is optimistic about their future together. Hes still my best friend. This time its gonna stick, laughs Susan.Photo by MAUREEN DURBECKSusan Cobb and Denny Gibb celebrate their wedding on 11-11-11 at 11 a.m. on 11th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach.

Make no mistake: He is NOT playing. His efforts are deadly serious attempts to rid himself of his painful body noose of fishing line and maddening cleaner fish called remoras.Have you ever gotten sand in your eyes? Ever been stuck with an invisible cactus spine? Has a tiny tickly hair ever weaved itself around your eyelashes such that, despite your best efforts, you just couldnt get it off? If you have long hair, have you ever endured the irritating tickle of an undetectable strand of hair dancing on your cheek or against the back of your upper arm? Such tickling begins innocently. But when it becomes unrelenting, such tickling escalates to taunting and finally to pure torment. Torment is the life of the little baby bottlenose dolphin, Vidalia, who has been entangled in fishing line since July. Fishing line is wrapped around his body, dorsal fin and mouth. Line stretches tautly across his mouth like a bridle on a horse, ascending diagonally to his dorsal fin. Every time the little fella rises to breathe, the fishing line rubs back and forth across his left eye and the right side of his neck. His forward swimming movements tug the fishing line backwards across his dorsal fin like a saw cutting wood. Torturously, each time Vidalia comes to the surface for air, the line cuts into the fin of his body a little more each time. It is theoretically possible to catch, cut free, and release the entangled calf. But such a rescue is heartbreakingly complicated, a maritime crapshoot of finding a needle in a haystack. A successful rescue requires that several essential pieces come together simultaneously. Piece one, you need federal permission. We have that. Piece two, you need people experienced in the dangerous mission of netting the entangled dolphin, cutting off the fishing line, and setting the dolphin free. Fortunately, we also have them. Unfortunately, it takes 3 dozen of them in multiple boats, and theyre scattered across the state of Florida. In other words, the rescue must be planned ahead of time rather than launched spontaneously when the entangled calf is sighted at sea. Consequently, piece three is the ability to locate the entangled dolphin when it is scheduled to be rescued. The mother of the entangled calf is a dolphin we call Valiant. Weve seen Valiant throughout our study. But like the other dolphins, Valiant doesnt stay in the study area; she travels through it. Weve not equipped her with a satellite tag so theres no telling exactly where she and the baby are at any particular time. However, weve mapped her sighting locations from the last several years. These broadly reveal where she is more likely rather than less likely to be at sea. You cant rescue a dolphin that you cant find. Valiant and her little entangled calf Vidalia recently returned to our area. Sometimes Vidalia appears to be playful, jumping and zinging around. Make no mistake: He is NOT playing. His efforts are deadly serious attempts to rid himself of his painful body noose of fishing line and maddening cleaner fish called remoras. At other times, Vidalia appears to be too weak to continue his struggle against his unyielding noose of fishing line. During several sightings, he tried repeatedly to clamber up on his mothers back for support as if too weary to swim. Such behavior is typical of baby monkeys but certainly not of baby dolphins. And baby he is: still young enough to be living solely on his mothers milk. Piece four, is calm weather. Windy days make rescues impossible, puts the rescue team at too great a risk, or both. Piece five, is shallow water. The rescue is most easily done in water that is less than hip deep. It can sometimes be accomplished in deeper water, however. To date, weve had several but not all of the pieces come together at the same time. The frustration is indescribable. The good citizens of Gulf Boulevard can help us keep track of Valiant and her little entangled Vidalia. If youre on the Intracoastal Waterway or along the Gulf coastline from Fort De Soto northward, keep a sharp lookout for them. The calf should be easy to recognize by the fist-sized wad of fishing line flopping off either side of its body and by the slice at the base of the leading edge of his dorsal fin, which curls the fin back. Youre legally bound to stay 50 yards away to avoiding harassing them. Please do NOT try to take their pictures. However, if youre so inclined, please take note of the date, time and latitude/longitude location of any sightings and email the information to me at email@example.com.

This is the outdoors and theres always going to be variables, even on the most perfect days. So with that said, a closed trout season and now a closed gag grouper season should only be a bump in the road; fishing will go on we just have to shift gears. Inshore, redfish are on the flats in good numbers. Small schools of fish ranging in size from 18 to 25 inches can be targeted on low tides out on the exposed edges of the flats with either soft plastic jigs or fresh cut-bait on the bottom. High tides will have these fish shadowing the mullet schools and/or staged up around oyster bars. When the fish are cruising the edges of the oyster bars a live select shrimp suspended underneath a float will almost always draw a strike. Cooler water temperatures as well as windy conditions have made it difficult to pattern baitfish over the past few days so live shrimp have came in handy. The best thing about live shrimp is that everything eats them and also will give you the opportunity to hook into more crustacean minded species such as pompano and sheepshead, two types of fish that would be off the table if you were solely relying on baitfish. Free-lining live shrimp with an up-current cast and letting it drift through the potential strike zone will allow you to fool even the wariest of predatory feeders. For variety of fish, target deep grass beds in 3to 6-feet of water. These deep flats are often found near the edge of the main channel as well as the many spoil islands throughout the Intracoastal Waterway. Given the right water clarity and tidal movement, one could expect to hook into such species as sea trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and pompano.

A new movie about longtime FBI director J. Edgar Hoover has just been released. Its been getting mixed reviews, but I want to see it. Hoover was my first boss. I searched fingerprints for him for six months, back in 1948. I cant say I ever had lunch with Mr. Hoover or otherwise hob-nobbed with him. I was a 17-year-old clerk in the Bureaus Identification Division, at 2nd and D Streets SW in Washington, D.C. Hoovers roost was in the Department of Justice headquarters a mile or two away. I was present a few times when Hoover addressed graduates of the FBIs National Academy. On such occasions a sizeable number of employees would be herded into an auditorium to make sure Hoover had a respectable-sized audience. I remember him as a medium-height muscular man who spoke rapidly and clearly. (As a child Hoover stuttered. In school he remedied this by joining a debate club and becoming one of its most valuable members.) My tenure with the FBI took place before any of the nasty rumors had begun to circulate. We all knew that Hoover had a very close relationship with his assistant, Clyde Tolson. We knew they lived together, lunched together, and were seldom apart for long. But tales of Hoovers cross-dressing and painting Tolsons toenails were not yet part of Washingtons cocktail chatter. When reading the many accounts of Hoovers alleged transvestite appearances, its wise to remember how many people loathed him and would gladly have made up false stories about him. I cant say I remember Hoovers being idolized by his employees, but the level of respect and awe went mighty deep. An accepted truth among his troops was that, when Hoover submitted his yearly budget to Congress, it was always approved, untouched, because of the esteem Americans felt for Hoover and the FBI. We now know that the real reason is that many House members were terrified (and rightly so) that Hoover might release contents of the dossiers he kept on many government officials. Hoover held on to his post for 48 years, at least partly because no sitting President was willing to risk firing him. Hoover was the ultimate blackmailer, both potentially and actually. Was he therefore a monster? Some would say so, but others remember Hoover as a hero, Americas foremost racket-buster and anti-communist. The new movie recalls Hoovers role in the 1919 Palmer raids, a series of arrests of persons suspected of being communists or anarchists. Due process was a minor concern of Hoover and his prosecutors, as well as most Americans in that era, when Bolsheviks were seen lurking in every corner. In his later years Hoover and the Bureau were known for their ultra-vigilance in spotlighting persons whose behavior was immoral, even if not downright illegal. Hoover had a special dislike for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in no small part because of Kings weakness for women who were not his wife. The FBIs fame and reputation blossomed during the Roaring Twenties, when John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and other crooks were knocking over banks and creating headlines. For a time they were so successful that Hoover feared he might lose his job for failing to defeat the hoodlums. At that point he rallied his forces and took the offensive. Hoover triumphed, and from then on his agents now known as G-men could do no wrong. The new movie takes a good look at Hoovers mother, played by British actress Judy Dench. With a double-dyed harpy like her forming her sons early character and then dominating much of his adult life, its no wonder that Hoover ended up as a sexually troubled man with enough neuroses to keep a psychiatrist entranced for decades. His mother is quoted as saying shed rather have a dead son than one who was homosexual. If so, the sleek and handsome Clyde Tolson surely must have given Mrs. Hoover pause when he charmed her son. However, other writers have said that Hoover had a good relationship with his mother, and showed her many kindnesses. He lived with his mother until her death in 1938. Although Hoover was not comfortable with women, he loved dogs, and had seven of them during his lifetime. Today the FBI headquarters in Washington still bears the name of J. Edgar Hoover, despite the fact that many persons have asked that the building be re-named for someone else, preferably a Justice Department servant who did not cling to power by spying on his enemies (real or suspected), defaming them, and occasionally blackmailing them. The renaming campaign has not prospered. In death, as in his lifetime, Hoover is not easily disposed of.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun.

Edgar Hoover hero or monster?Apply lesson to boat paradesEditor: In light of seeing two different Christmas boat parades scheduled in the past two issues of the Beach Beacon, I thought I better write something for the group that heads the boat parade that runs on the three-night schedule to ponder. I think the other two are separate parades done by other beach towns. All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum is a dynamite poem that every public leader should read. Right now, Im particularly alluding to the group who heads the Christmas Boat Parade. The lines from the book Im specifically referring to are: These are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. My husband and I are one of those nearly natives, who moved to Pinellas County, from other states with the influx of 1959. After college (in Tallahassee and Western Carolina) and a 20-year stint in Pasco, we returned home to the Redington Beaches in 1998, where we bought a condo on the Intracoastal in 1999. Before that, we use to drive down here from Hudson to watch the boat parade with my in-laws. That was especially hard on the boys the next day being tired for school. We love the Christmas boat parade. Other than the Independence Day fireworks, the boat parade is the second of the two family events I host each year. However, after the last several years the diminishing boat parade got me thinking. ... The boat parade is always scheduled the same nights each year, with the north part of Madeira Beach from the bridge, Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Shores, and Indian Shores up to the Pub always getting Sunday night. Heres the thing. After the boats and human participants have done the parade on Friday and Saturday, they are kind of wiped out and some drop out of Sunday night. I can think of several valid reasons: Its a school night, a work night; they have to be up late cleaning off the boats, getting the kids to bed, etc. We do appreciate the participants who hang in there for all three nights. Its a beautiful sight for all of us to see. Now we return to All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten. One of the most important things kindergartners learn is to take turns. Im speaking from experience as an early childhood teacher of 30 years and as a mother of two boys; I think its time the towns started to take turns. Lets start going on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, rotating schedule. I loved it the year when we got rained out, and the Redington Beaches got to have it the following Saturday night. That just might have been the best one ever! After all, as any kindergartner knows, its only fair to take turns. Nancy Clark Bloomer Redington ShoresReader disagrees with editorialEditor: I take issue with the editorial published by your paper on Nov. 10 headlined Telltale signs of instability. I so totally agree that the mayor of Madeira Beach and commissioners do indeed bear the responsibility of the turmoil in the government because no one else will step to the plate and bear the burden of accountability. The mayor and commissioners are doing exactly what the citizens of Madeira Beach have voted them to do. The citizens have asked them to clean house at city hall, clean up a budget, cut unnecessary expenditures, eliminate unnecessary overpriced jobs and bring this city into a balanced budget with fewer expenses and still maintain all the amenities the city can provide for the taxpayers. The attack on Madden was totally unfathomable. Madden has accomplished more in the last few weeks than has the former city manager and acting city manager combined. Madden lives in Madeira Beach and has the welfare of the citys government at heart. He did not come out of retirement and take on the awesome task of interim city manager for the money. Madden has logged untold hours and accomplished much over these last few weeks, as published in the last issue of the St. Petersburg Times. If any business is going to be successful, drastic house cleaning measures must be put into place. Much like remodeling a much loved home, it takes time and patience to endure the journey. We, as a city, must remain steadfast in cleaning out the dead weight in our city hall. We have begun the endeavor of growing this great city of ours and I so hope the citizens can bear the bad with the good so that the end result will be a friendly, powerful community that we will all be proud of to live in. Roger Koske Madeira BeachA public health issueEditor: There is a statement in Brian Goffs Nov. 10 article that Indian Rocks Beachs Dec. 13 Commission meeting will take up the possibility of prohibiting smoking on our beaches and in our city parks. This is untrue. I am the commissioner who asked for this to be considered. It is to consider voluntary areas where smokers can be segregated from nonsmokers and would not be enforceable. Many cities and counties across our state have already signed on to this concept. IRB tried the education option a few years ago (remember the pocket ashtrays, disposal units at each access, and cigarette butt counts?) That was a failure. The state allows smoking in both places and we have to follow state law. That being said, both Sarasota and Gulfport have recently adopted no smoking period ordinances saying, sue us. I am sure that is coming: Remember restaurants, airplanes, public conveyances, public buildings and those odd glass enclosures at airports? All places for smokers to congregate and now all nonsmoking period. Please consider a clear explanation of what is really under consideration. This is a public health issue, not a ploy to restrict smokers right to smoke. Commissioner Terry Hamilton-Wollin Indian Rocks BeachRome wasnt built in a dayEditor: I would like to respond to letter writer who thought Gov. Rick Scott made the right move turning down funds for high speed rail and I for one was wrong wanting the project to go on. The writer went on to cite what was happening in California, where their cost now will be three times the original estimate and take 10 years longer. Well, Rome wasnt built in a day. When George W. Bush started the Iraq war his estimate was it would last a few months and cost a few million dollars. After 10 years were still there and the last figure I saw the cost was approaching $800 billion and counting. Not to mention dead, injured and families lives ruined. Bush stated the Iraq oil would pay for the war. Wheres the check? It was the biggest blunder in the history of the United States. I still think Scott also made a big blunder. Dominic Grillo Dunedin Talk about a recipe for disaster. Trying to take the workload off co-workers, I agreed to type some recipes for a holiday section. I dont cook, I said to an editor, showing her a recipe. What does this mean? Youre typing recipes? another editor asked. Yup, Im on boozy burbon balls. The recipes were submitted by our readers, and they were making me hungry. But after an hour of trying to decipher kitchen speak, I was in need of some boozy bourbon balls to get through it. In this business, you never know what hits you. Over the decades Ive been a newsman, Ive had to type everything from happy first birthday briefs to school lunch menus to advertising copy. It goes with the territory if you work at a community newspaper. The average reader may not realize the limitations of newspapers, large and small, particularly in todays trying economic conditions. I would like to think most journalists who have survived the downsizing of newspaper staffs across the country consider ourselves to be fortunate to be in the profession we love, even when we have to explain to an upset reader why the newspaper cant run a photo of people who are badly out of focus. Or why we cant cover a book signing, a church service or a sighting at Halloween of Dracula on the school bus. We do what we can even if we dont think we know what were doing. In the 1980s, when even small communities were saturated with media coverage, I was asked by an editor on the spur of the moment to cover the Florida Citrus Commission in Lakeland. I grimaced. At that time, the only thing I knew about citrus, especially grapefruit, is that you dont want to run over it with a lawn mower. But I had a job to do. The Citrus Commission threw out all types of facts and figures that I knew nothing about. I picked up on the constant reference to the scurrilous Brazilian product but that, in itself, didnt help me understand the gist of the boards discussion. I wrote a story about the commission debating the Brix scale, which is the weight of sugar per volume of solution at a given temperature, or something like that. My editor read the story and decided that that first paragraph needed to be livelier. So he wrote, Florida Citrus commissioners are throwing Brix at each other. That editor never saw a pun he didnt like, but he was the boss. At about that time, I was assigned often to be the man onthe street, the poor guy who must go to the post office and asks people for their opinion of a newsworthy event and snap their pictures. Many people dont want to be bothered by it. When President Reagan was shot, the editor sent me to the post office and told me to be back in an hour or so to meet the afternoon deadline. Sir, whats your reaction to President Reagan being shot? I asked a man leaving the post office. Im not going to answer any hypothetical questions. Its true, sir. The president was shot about an hour ago, I said. I told you. Im not going to answer any hypothetical questions. Fine, I said to myself. I found four other people who gave me an answer, and I rushed back to the newsroom. Got it, I said to the editor. Got what? The man on the street column. Oh, were holding that for tomorrow, Tom. To bury it underneath the crossword puzzle, no doubt. Please dont ask me why we dont do man on the street at Tampa Bay Newspapers. And, as the holiday season approaches, please try to understand that there are only so many pictures of the visitor from the North Pole that we can run in our papers. His elves, too. Has been years, too, since weve done a story on the fortunate pet turkey on Thanksgiving; guess were overdue. I could share dozens of anecdotes about what readers want or dont want from their newspapers. Take columnists. Readers seem to either love or hate a columnist and usually dont mince words when they call to complain about him or her. Cant count how many times I have explained to a reader that I dont tell that liberal so-and-so what to write. My other piece of advice just dont read them often results in click of the phone. All in a days work. Were deluged with emails, faxes and hand-written letters to editor, free samples from the Popcorn Board, requests to judge essay contests, invitations to ceremonies, and queries as to when an announcement is going to appear in the paper. People want copies of obituaries that ran decades ago. Try as we might, we cant meet all our readers needs. But they keep calling, through good times and bad. And I wouldnt want it any other way.Anything but man on the street 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.com Publisher/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.

Knot On Main Street set to reopenDUNEDIN After months of hard work following the devastating fire on June 8, owners Bob and Barb OConnell recently announced phase one of the reopening of Knot On Main Street, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19. Knot On Main Street, an antique mall, moved to its current Dunedin location in late 2002 and occupied 10,000 square feet. There were over 65 vendors with an eclectic assortment of antiques, collectables, vintage items and gifts. On June 8, a fire destroyed the north building, while the south building suffered extensive smoke and water damage. The OConnells were determined to get their shop back to its once proud origins. They started with the repair and restoration of the south building. Now completed, this bright and airy 5,000-square-foot sales space will be home to 30 different vendors and their various wares.

On Sept. 21 she and a guest were flown out to Los Angeles to receive the award. In conjunction with the ACES program, AARP was holding their annual Life@50+ expo where there were 20,000 AARP members attending. Bullerman earned the award for being a Level 2 agent for Medicare along with the service hours. She spent volunteering her time as president of Kiwanis and all the community services the organization provides for children. It was an experience I wont forget and felt honored to receive the award.

Supporting the nonprofit organizations mission to be community leaders in animal advocacy, the new vehicle will be used to transport sick and injured stray animals requiring emergency medical care. The Sienna also will be deployed to assist in cruelty investigations of distressed animals. The Toyota 100 Cars for Good program has awarded 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days to 100 deserving nonprofit organizations nationwide based on votes from the public. The program was launched as a Facebook-enabled philanthropy initiative, which engaged supporters of these charities through its Facebook application. Each day for 100 days, five organizations were profiled on the Facebook page and the one with the most votes at the end of the day was awarded a car. The 400 runners-up each received $1,000. We are huge animal supporters at Autoway Toyota, so we were absolutely thrilled that the SPCA Tampa Bay was chosen to receive this Toyota Sienna, said David Bertoncini, sales manager at Autoway Toyota, in a press release. Its not a rare sight to see our customers car shopping with mans best friend at their side, which we welcome and enjoy. We want to do everything we can to help the SPCA Tampa Bay give animals a brighter life than theyve had. We are honored to be able to take part in this day. In addition to delivering the Sienna to the SPCA Tampa Bay, Autoway Toyota is filling the van with items from the organizations wish list, such as pet food, toys and other supplies. On the day of the event, the community is invited to bring their own furry friends and supply donations to the dealership for the SPCA Tampa Bay, which also will have cats and dogs available for adoption. We are incredibly thankful for Toyotas donation and for the support of Pinellas County residents, said Martha Boden, CEO, SPCA Tampa Bay. In the last five years weve responded to more than 10,000 animal emergency assistance calls, driving over 500,000 miles in Pinellas County with our service vehicles. Winning a new Toyota enables our team to use reliable transportation as we help save lives and return injured animals to their worried owners.SPCA extends Saturday hoursLARGO SPCA Tampa Bay recently expanded its Saturday service hours to the public. The extended hours on the agencys busiest day of the week can help more animals find their forever homes. Being open longer on Saturdays gives families needed time to make the right adoption choice, said Martha Boden, CEO at SPCA Tampa Bay, in a press release. We want to encourage people to seek out SPCA Tampa Bay for all their pet-related needs: adopt a new pet, obtain behavior training, take informative tours or shop at the Pet Boutique. According to Boden, the change in hours marks the beginning of new programs for 2012, and a new twist to existing offerings.

The event also will feature food, drink and Celtic craft vendors along with a family-friendly atmosphere. Music has always served as the centerpiece of the festival, attracting both established and emerging acts. This years featured Celtic rock bands will include the ever-popular Seven Nations as well as NeedFire, Lucid Druid and Druid Roots. The event also will feature performances by three Dunedin pipe and drum corps and highland and Irish dancers. There will be food and drink vendors along with Celtic craft vendors. The members of Seven Nations pride themselves on the fact that they are not your fathers Celtic band, as the groups website states. Like the citys annual Highland Games in the spring, the Celtic Festival reflects the rich American and Scottish heritage of Dunedins founding fathers. The festival helps secure and promote its colorful past and reminds residents and visitors alike of its connection to Scotland. In commemoration of its ancestral ties, Dunedin selected Stirling, Scotland, and Summerside, Prince Edward Island as its sister cities.Celtic musicSeven Nations is known for a passionate, tender and rollicking style that encompasses everything from roots and traditional folk to dance and fusion-rock. The band is also famous for a relentless touring schedule, sometimes spending more than 300 days a year on the road. Touring full-time since 1994, Seven Nations has performed in Europe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and virtually every state in the United States. They performed an entire show with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra at the Dublin Irish Festival as well as performing at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, a New Years Eve concert at Scotlands Royal Mile and at the New York City Marathon. The name Seven Nations refers to the seven nations of the Celtic world, now known as Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Gallaecia. In addition to their two sets at the Dunedin Celtic Festival, Seven Nations will perform Friday, Nov. 18, 9 p.m., at Dunedin Brewery, 937 Douglas Ave. Take rock guitars, bass and drums and mix them with soaring bagpipes and reeling Celtic fiddle: Thats Needre. The band strives to invigorate vintage Celtic music by infusing an adrenalin rush straight out of the heart of rock and roll. We take traditional Celtic melodies and instrumentation and bring them into a modern context, the band writes on its website. We blend multiple styles of music and instruments into a unique style that has made us one of todays most distinctive and original bands. Band members include Brad Madison, Highland bagpipes, uilleann pipes, guitars and melodica; Jacob Frasier, drum kit, percussion and vocals; Magen Miller, fiddle, piano, accordion and vocals; Ed Walewski, bass, mandolin, dulcimer and recorder; and Kevin Hanlon, electric and acoustic guitars and vocals. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Needfire formed in 2004. The bands Long Lonesome Tour in 2010 took them from Florida to California and from Texas to Ontario. Clearwaters own Lucid Druid will bring their self-described eclectic world-fusion music to the festival, headed by two-time world champion bagpiper Adam Quinn. Lucid Druid dates back to 2003. Initially, the band showcased their brand of eclectic Celtic fusion almost exclusively on stage at the Dunedin Brewery. Since the early days, the bands prominence has experienced phenomenal growth and they have earned a devoted following. Lucid Druid frequently serves as a featured act at local and See CELTIC FESTIVAL, page 10B All things CelticSeven Nations headlines the annual Dunedin Celtic Festival Nov. 19 111711 111711BL www.SandyHartmann.comProperties@Sandysofce.com EXQUISITE SEMINOLE HOME 3BR/3.5BA/2CG + RESORT STYLE POOL Located in small private gated community with estate sized lots & community fishing pier on Intracoastal Spacious floor plan includes all the finishing details$650,000 COMPLETELY REMODELED INDIAN SHORES CONDO 2BR/2BA + PETS ALLOWED Many updates throughout: renovated kitchen, new cabinets, granite counters, new stainless steel appliances, new plumbing, fresh paint, new carpet, remodeled bathroom, new tub, fresh tile$239,000 CONVENIENTLY LOCATED REDINGTON BEACH HOME 4BR/3BA/2CP + POOL & SPA Located just 2 blocks from the beach 3 bdrm main home plus 1 bdrm in law area Features: terrazzo, vaulted ceilings, fenced yard$250,000 Sandy Hartmann & Associates has been providing exceptional real estate services to their clients for over 31 years and is consistently ranked in the top 1% of Real Estate agents across the United States.

An official document signed by the mayor proclaims Nov. 18-20, 2011, to be Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic Weekend. The 21st annual Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic will run Friday through Sunday, Nov. 18-20, at Sheraton Sand Key Resort, 1160 Gulf Blvd.; and Marriott Suites on Sand Key, 1201 Gulf Blvd. A weekend badge costs $100. Daily badges for Friday and Sunday are $40. Badges for Saturday are $50. For information, call Bette Marnell at 5360064 or visit www.jazzclassic.net. The annual festival will feature a sizzling mix of classic and contemporary jazz, swing, blues, soul, ragtime and Cajun/Zydeco music. There will be swing dancing, a Sunday gospel service, and a post festival mixer for those who want the party to last a little longer. Other special events will include a parasol parade, clarinet clambake, banjo and washboard extravaganza, festival divas, piano presentations and jam sessions. Attendees will have an opportunity to see dozens of bands, with an estimated 130 sets expected to be played by artists such as Barbary Coast Dixieland Band, Bill Allreds Classic Jazz Band, Wallys Warehouse Waifs, Cornet Chop Suey, The Midiri Brothers and Dave Bennett and the Festival All-Stars. We expect this years festival will be our biggest and best yet, said Joan Dragon, festival director, in a press release. Not only will we have several bands that are rated in the Top 5 nationally by festival audiences, but were featuring the Mickey Finn Show, which has been a national treasure since entertaining audiences in San Diego for 14 years, 24 years at Las Vegas and four years on national television. The Mickey Finn Show also is considered a leading attraction on cruises, at regional performing arts and cultural centers, at special events and at major musical events from coast to coast. As it has in past years, swing dancing will again be part of the festival. Hosted by Sam Mahfoud and the Swing Time Dancers from Gulfport, a swing dance featuring select festival bands will be presented Friday, Nov. 18, 7 p.m. to closing. A limited number of tickets are available at $18. The city of Clearwaters proclamation noted that this years festival marks a milestone. Sonny LaRosa and Americas Youngest Jazz Band will celebrate their 20th consecutive year of performing at the festival. LaRosas band is one of the most unique and professionally sounding swing and jazz bands of its kind in the world. The outfit won a gold medal at the International Music Festival and was the youngest jazz band ever to be invited to perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. LaRosa, a trumpet player and jazz musician originally from New York City, leads a 23-piece band of 4to 13-year-olds. The band includes full sax, brass and rhythm sections. LaRosa, who has been working with talented young Clearwater musicians for 34 years, creates special arrangements for his band. Seeking to keep the big band tradition alive, LaRosa encourages all children of this age group to get involved in jazz music.Festival scheduleThe music will start Friday, Nov. 18, noon, and will continue until midnight. Saturdays schedule will run 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Sundays activities will kick off with a gospel service at 9 a.m. Music will continue Sunday until the festival finale at the Sheraton, set for 4:15 to 5 p.m. Following the finale, guests may select to attend the AfterGlow Mixer and dinner buffet at Rustys Restaurant. Bands will be playing at several venues including Jakes Place, High Society Hall and Condons Corner, all at the Sheraton Hotel; and Al Downing HallDixieland Jazz ClassicSuncoast Classic Jazz Inc. to host Floridas largest traditional jazz festival at Sand Keyand the New Orleans Room, at Marriott Suites. The Mickey Finn Show will be presented Saturday, 2 and 7 p.m., at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, 521 S. Gulfview Blvd. A limited number of tickets will be available for the general public at $20 a person. BandsFollowing is a rundown of some of the festival highlights: Tom Rigney and Flambeau Rigney, a violinist and composer, joined with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau. In their second decade performing together, Flambeau showcases Rigneys passionate, virtuoso fiddling. The band specializes in Cajun and zydeco two-steps, blues and funky New Orleans grooves. Bill Allreds Classic Jazz Band More than 20 years ago, Bill Allreds Classic Jazz Band was born in Orlando, founded by a group of former musicians of Walt Disney World and Rosie OGradys. After performing at a number of regional jazz festivals, they solidified their sound when they realized there was a niche for their signature little big band style. The band has released more than a dozen albums. Barbary Coast Dixieland Band Established in 1967, the Barbary Coast Dixieland Band has performed everywhere from paddlewheel boats and state fairs to Nagasaki, Japan. Led by left-handed banjo and guitar player Dick Petersen, the band features six talented musicians who play 18 instruments. Dave Bennett and the Festival All-Stars This young Michigan clarinetist has earned a reputation playing in a style and sound inspired by his personal hero, Benny Goodman. Bennett has led his sextet to concerts and festivals around the country. Rose Bilal and the Stars of Jazz Bilal boasts a varied and unique talent, having performed on the stage, in clubs and restaurants and at motivational speaking engagements. A jazz vocalist and entertainer, she recorded Guess Who I Saw Today, a solo CD, at KDAT Productions in Tampa. Cornet Chop Suey Named after a Louis Armstrong composition, Cornet Chop Suey has released eight CDs today, including their Saint Louis Armstrong, featuring songs they perform in their Louis Armstrong show. The band includes Brian Casserly on trumpet, Tom Tucker on comet, Jerry Epperson on reeds, Brett Stamps on trombone, Paul Reed on piano, Jay Hungerford on bass and John Gillick on drums. Louis Ford & His New Orleans Flairs Ford is a second-generation musician. Following in the footsteps of his father, Clarence Ford, he is an accomplished clarinetist and saxophonist and he is dedicated to the preservation of jazz. Valerie Gillespie At age 8, Gillespie picked up a saxophone for the first time. She landed her first paid gig at 14 and shes been playing ever since. Shes performed with everyone from Chick Corea and Rosemary Clooney to Ray Charles and Belinda Womack. The Midiri Brothers Jazz Band Since graduating See JAZZ CLASSIC, page 10B

Quinn is one of five core members of Lucid Druid who seamlessly blend the sounds of bagpipes, guitar, stringed bass, didgeridoo and Scottish snare with a variety of African drums to create a unique, innovative and fresh sound. According to the bands official bio, Quinn has been playing bagpipes and composing music for more than 25 years. Taking advantage of the musical programs offered in Dunedin schools, he studied bagpipes, clarinet and piano performance. He was only 19 when he began a two-year stint as a musician at Tokyo Disneyland in Japan. Later, he was part of a bagpipe trio at Floridas Epcot Center. Lucid Druids lineup of talented musicians includes Quinn on bagpipes, degerpipes, shuttlepipes, didgeridoo, clarinet and piano; Steve Turner on ashikos, djembes, drums, didgeridoos and various percussion; Joe Porter on upright bass and electric bass; Doug White on Scottish snare, drums, roto-tams, bongos and various percussion; and Sebastian Deledda on guitars. In March, Lucid Druid celebrated the release of their CD Cernunnos with a performance at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Druid Roots, relative newcomers to the Celtic music scene, combines the talents of Scottish singer/songwriter James Smith and multi-instrumental Irish Bohemian Daniel Joseph ORyan. Completing the trinity is organic percussionist Joel Jadus MacSweeney. According to the bands Facebook page, the three musicians seek to create an altogether new blend of Celtic, bluegrass and world music. Admission is free. Parking will cost $15. Coolers, pets, beach umbrellas and pop-up tents will not be permitted in the park. The Celtic Festival is a benefit concert for Dunedins Scottish bands. The festival is promoted, organized, managed and operated by the Dunedin Highland Games and Festival Committee Inc., a nonprofit corporation. Visit www.dunedinhighlandgames.com. Barbary Coast Dixieland Band. JAZZ CLASSIC, from page 5Bfrom Glassboro State College in the 1980s, the Midiri Brothers have made jazz and classical music the focus of their lives. Initially, they worked the concert circuit in Philadelphia, New York and Atlantic City. They accepted an invitation to open the Great Connecticut Jazz Festival an event they return to often. Expanding their horizons, they have appeared at many west coast jazz festivals including Mammoth Lakes Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, The Pismo Jubilee By The Sea Jazz Fest, Redwood Coast Music Fest and Sun Valley Swing-n-Dixie Jazz Jubilee. The Original Wildcat Jazz Band Hailing from Arizona, the Original Wildcat Jass Band is known for traditional New Orleans and Chicago jazz.

We could not produce the Classic each year without the efforts of some 200 volunteers and the generous support provided by all our sponsors, Dragon said. According to the festival director, sponsors and benefactors contribute from $300 to more than $3,000 each, enabling the organization to provide more support to student scholarships and community programs. More importantly, it makes a difference in the lives of aspiring young musicians, Dragon said. The Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic is a nonprofit organization seeking to provide opportunities for local youth to both study and perform traditional jazz. Annual youth scholarships are awarded both independently and in partnership with the Suncoast Jazz Society. Dragon also praised the city of Clearwater and Pinellas County for permitting the use of the Sand Key Park parking lot adjacent to the Sheraton Sand Key Resort, increasing the availability of free parking.
