The event is the clubs largest fundraiser.Thats the spiritCity OKs plan for construction loanFinal vote set for Dec. 13 on financing of Highland Recreation Center work By TOM GERMONDLARGO City commissioners are moving forward with plans to borrow $17 million for the Highland Recreation Center construction project through two loans at interest rates of 1.72 and 1.74 percent. They unanimously approved a loan proposal Dec. 6 of up to $20 million from JP Morgan Chase Bank for the recreation complex and the refinancing of an existing wastewater fund loan. Commissioners authorized staff to lock in the interest rate through an agreement with the bank. City officials plan to finance the loan with proceeds from the 1-cent local option sales tax revenue. Payments on the loan will be made for a period up to Jan. 1, 2020. The interest rates were lower than city officials expected. Weve been projecting 3 to 4 percent, said city Finance Director Kim Adams. The 40,000-square-foot complex is expected to be built on the existing site off Highland Avenue. The current complex was built in 1972 and has leaks and other structural problems. Construction is expected to begin in January. Commissioners plan to vote on a resolution giving final approval for the two loans at their meeting Tuesday, Dec. 13. The resolution will establish final loan terms. City officials have said borrowing money from a bank is a better option than issuing bonds because of the relatively short borrowing period and lower costs involved. A similar plan was used to finance the new Community Center, which is being financed with a loan at 3.4 percent interest. The cost to borrow the money for the recreation complex would be about $1.25 million. Commissioner Harriet Crozier asked if Chase Bank See LOAN, page 2A A passion for musicFirefighter enjoys singing opera, tuning pianos By BOB McCLURELARGO Its not every day that you run into a firefighter who moonlights as an opera singer and a piano tuner. But as 55-year-old Nolan Marshall, a 16year veteran of the Largo Fire Department, points out, he moonlights as a firefighter to support his passion for music. To hear Marshall sing, its evident. The bass baritone vocalist puts every ounce of energy in his soul into his craft something he has only recently discovered. At 6-foot, 6 inches and 280 pounds, he looks like he could be a former NFL defensive end, but thats far from his genetic makeup. Actually, opera was far from his mind until 2003 when he was called upon by well-known opera tenor Giorgio Aristo to move a grand piano for opera singer Horst Hoffmann, who was relocating to Belleair from Australia. He (Aristo) heard my voice and asked me about singing, said Marshall, a former volunteer fireman and resident of Seminole. He had me sing some scales and all of the sudden hes teaching me two times a week. Later Hoffmann joined the process. Who on this planet can say that? asked Marshall. Slowly the two opera stars molded the Fond du Lac, Wis., native into an effective opera performer. Finally, Marshall said, he found what means the most to him. Singing is a natural thing, he said. Its a God-given thing, of sorts. To me, its now my passion in life. He sings regularly at First Lutheran Church in Clearwater and performed Dec. 4 at Grace Lutheran Church in St. Petersburg with the Pinellas Lutheran Choirs production of Handels Messiah. On Dec. 9 at 7 p.m., he will sing as part of a Christmas program at Belleair Town Hall. However, opera is clearly his favorite style of music. The story lines are designed to grab emotions and make people cry, Marshall said. Thats what opera does and thats why I love it. Among his favorite operas is The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner, which tells the story of a mysterious ghost character that comes back every seven years to find a woman who will be faithful to him through eternity. His favorite opera singers include the late See FIREFIGHTER, page 3ACounty commissioners discuss new ideas for EMSSchool Board member dies Lew Williams of St. Petersburg was elected to the board in 2010 ...

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pilot programs, pension concessions from St. Petersburg, cost-savings on a contract renewal with Paramedics Plus, EMS millage rates by district, fire fees and more. Pinellas County commissioners talked about several new ideas to cut costs for Emergency Medical Services during a work session Nov. 28. Paramedics, firefighters and other interested parties filled the commission chamber to talk about proposed changes to EMS. Should the county continue to contract with a private company, Paramedics Plus, to run Sunstar, or should local fire departments take over ambulance service. Sunstar employees, many long-time county residents, expressed concern about losing their job. They worry that fire departments wont hire them because their expertise is with health care not fighting fires. Paramedics employed at local fire stations also are worried about their jobs due to a second plan that calls for funding fewer positions at municipal fire departments and fire districts. No one wants to change the current system of providing EMS services that garners praise as one of the best in the nation. It all comes down to affordability in the current economy. However, commissioners are concerned about the growing dissension as people and organizations take sides. There are no bad guys in this scenario, said Commissioner Ken Welch, who requested the 8 a.m. Monday meeting.

The suspect is described as a white male, 40 to 50 years old, about 5 foot 7 inches to 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighing about 170 to 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing jeans, black sneakers with white trim, a royal blue short-sleeve polo shirt, and a beige cap. According to Pinellas County sheriffs detectives, the suspect entered the bank about 3 p.m., approached the teller, implied a weapon and demanded cash. The teller complied with the demand and the suspect then fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. Anyone with information that may assist investigators in this case is asked to contact Detective Jeff Capra of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 582-6200. LOAN, from page 1Ahad bid before on projects. No, they are a relatively new player in this market, Adams said. He said that the citys bond counsel has dealt with Chase on other deals and they found them to be very professional. We do have good references on them, he said. In other matters Tuesday, commissioners approved an amended development order for the Bay Area Outlet Mall, which is located at the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 219 and Roosevelt Boulevard, on the site of the former Crossroads Mall. The project is considered a development of regional impact, undergoing a state and regional review process. The development is approved for 646,460 square feet of retail area, 30,000 square feet of office area and 258 condominiums or apartments. A bus transfer station will also be on the property. The developer is the Sembler Co. of St. Petersburg. Traditionally, you guys do an excellent job, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said, speaking to a Sembler representative. Among its many projects is the 800,000-square-foot Oakleaf Town Center in the southwest portion of Duval County; the Boynton Town Center, featuring 400,00 square feet of retail, 10,000 square feet of office space and more than 1,100 residential units and Town Brookhaven in Atlanta, Ga., which will consist of 600,00 square feet of big box retail, junior anchors, restaurants and boutiques. 12811 By TOM GERMONDLARGO City commissioners have scheduled a work session Dec. 13 on a proposed ordinance regulating food trucks. Commissioners liked the concept of allowing mobile food vendors in Largo, but raised many questions Oct. 18 about regulating them. Some raised concerns about possible competition between a restaurant and a mobile food vendor parked near a restaurant. City officials addressed those concerns and others. They said in a memo that landlords typically try to accommodate real estate exclusivity for tenants as much as reasonably possible since the success of their tenants is in their best interest as well. While some competition is inevitable, due to the nature of the food truck business, which features unique, to go foods, it is likely that they do not provide direct competition with the services provided by a sit-down restaurant, the memo said. Another concern was that the typical mobile food vendor would serve as a moving sign. City officials said that restricting the vendors from using the colorful vinyl wrappings could defeat the intent of the ordinance because they would lose their identities and not be visible from the roadway. The potential for illegal disposal of grease by mobile food vendors also was discussed. The ordinance would allow city officials to inspect commissary logs for the disposal of fats, oil and grease at the mobile food vendors commissary. All state-licensed mobile food vendors must have a local commissary that they use to prepare, store and dispose of their waste at the end of the day. City officials also are recommending that a review of the ordinance be undertaken before the end of the first year that it is in effect. The mobile food vendors popularity is increasing in Florida, and several are operating in the Tampa Bay area. According to a recent consumer survey, nearly six out of ten American adults say they would be likely to visit a food truck if their favorite restaurant offered one, up from 47 percent just one year ago, the National Restaurant Association said on its website. Though food trucks are often equated with chefs and entrepreneurs, they also present opportunities for operators of established restaurants to expand their operations and presence, as a majority of consumers say they would visit a food truck run by their favorite restaurant. Mobile foodservice can be a good way to extend an existing restaurant brand beyond the four walls of the establishment, said Hudson Riehle, senior vice president of the Research and Knowledge Group for the National Restaurant Association. Also under the proposed city ordinance, the pemitting fee for the vendors is $200. Vendors can only operate on nonresidential private parcels and not on the public rights of way. Proposed operating hours are 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. The vendors wont be allowed to be present on one location more than 24 hours at a time. A site visit in October to a local MFV by staff and administration provided a better understanding of the business model and the ability to make sure that the ordinance would be fair and reasonable to the vendors while meeting the citys objectives required to properly monitor the industry, a city memo said.

His idols figure heavily in his style. When I first started singing opera, I thought it was like skydiving, Marshall said. Its like thats a pretty cool experience. You open up and soar with your music. While his goal is to sing opera one day with a full orchestra behind him, he is finding satisfaction in performing a variety of music styles. Im still looking for the real me to come out in me and Im finding its church music and Christmas music, Marshall said. Theres a message there that people need to hear from Handel and I want to make the connection with the audience. His love affair with music began at age 5 when he started piano lessons and thats where it stopped for a while. After a brief stint as a college basketball player at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minn., Marshall relocated to Pinellas County at age 24, did some construction work, got married, found another job selling pianos and ultimately opened a piano repair business called The Piano Doctor, which did restorations, piano moves and tuning. As time went on, I realized I knew more about it than some of the people that were my tuners, he said. Gradually, I learned the nuts and bolts of the piano. Thirty years and a divorce later, he is still performing the same service as a sole proprietor. He admits his income is minimal, but thats not an issue. Money is not everything, Marshall said. I feel like (if you own a piano) you need my service and that makes me feel good. That means a lot. So Ill never be rich. Thanks to the support of his new wife of four years, Laurrain, his musical interests continue to soar. The smile on his face says it all. Its a ride hes enjoying.

4A Leader, December 8, 2011 By SUZETTE PORTERPINELLAS PARK State legislators wont be considering changes to the Special Act that created Pinellas Countys EMS Authority when the session starts in January. The Pinellas County Legislative Delegation voted unanimously Nov. 30 to approve a proposal set forth by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. The proposal requires the county to pay for a study, using EMS funds, by an independent nationally recognized accounting firm on the costs and potential revenue from two proposed plans to change the EMS system. The study also will consider the system currently in use. The study must be complete by July 1, 2012. Local legislators will assist in the selection of an impartial group of people representing municipalities, fire service, the county and the current ambulance service provider. The sixto eight-member committee must be selected by Jan. 1. In addition, the county cannot implement changes to the system proposed by a consultant and entities opposing those changes cannot take legal action. The Nov. 30 meeting was called after the countys legislators were asked to sponsor two opposing local bills that would change the special act that created the countys EMS Authority. These are two very different bills, Latvala said. We didnt understand it (the situation) enough to make a decision. He said the intent was to listen to as many perspectives as possible during a time-certain hearing. We all know why were here today, he said. There is no responsibility higher than protecting citizens keeping them safe. The auditorium at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center was carefully staged with proponents of the bills sitting at tables to the right and left of a long one in the front where the legislators were seated. Pinellas Park Mayor Bill Mischler welcomed the crowd and said the arrangement reminded him of a WWE SmackDown with opponents on both sides. The county was asked to present its perspective first. Commission Chair Susan Latvala said the special act needed to be amended to give the EMS Authority, which is the county commissioners, the ability to control costs by changing the method used to reimburse providers for advanced life support (first responder) services. She also said the authority needed to be able to set the level of service. She said it wasnt fair or equitable to give the commission the authority to raise taxes but not control costs. We want help to stabilize costs, she said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the intent was to provide a uniform level of service for the entire county. He said the current level of service of 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time was considered a platinum level of service in the United States. He said changes were needed to help the authority achieve equity in the distribution of revenue and expenditures, as well as allow for cost control and containment, which the county cannot do now due to budgets being set by the providers of the service. He said the changes in the countys local bill would not threaten home rule as it gives the providers the ability to provide a higher level at their own expense. Its quite simple, LaSala said. The board wants the authority and accountability that is unclear and lacking in the current special act. He explained that the EMS system uses a public utility model that provides transport by a private provider doing work under the countys license and brand of Sunstar. The county does the billing using information provided by the transport provider. He said Paramedics Plus was chosen via a sealed bid process and a contract was negotiated that included options for renewal ensuring continuity of service for the life of the contract. County commissioners most likely will vote to renew the contract with Paramedics Plus for at least one year on Dec. 6. He said the service provided by Paramedics Plus was superb and second to none in the state of Florida. We have a service that is uniform throughout the county, he said. It is a cost-effective model of delivering effective service. He then outlined the areas where the county and the firefighters agreed and the areas where they did not. Perhaps the biggest sticking point is the issue of cost. Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue and Lt. Scott Sanford, firefighter and paramedic with Palm Harbor Rescue, authors of a plan that advocates fire-based transport in place of a private ambulance company, say their plan will save money. However, county staff says actually it will cost more at least $25 million more than a system using changes recommended by the countys consultant. State officials want to get to reality figures, which is the impetus behind Sen. Latvalas proposal to hire an accounting firm to go over the numbers contained in the proposals from the firefighters and countys consultant. Regardless of which plan costs the most, some providers are opposed to changing the way the county pays for their services. The city of St. Petersburg says the method the county proposes to use to reimburse the 18 providers of advance life support (first responder) services, if the Special Act is amended, would put them out of business. St. Petersburg argues that the countys plan does not really save money to the system it just shifts the burden of cost to fire departments and fire districts. Sanford served as the spokesperson for the plan to allow fire-based transport. Jim and I started working on our proposal in direct response to LaSalas IPS plan to save money, he said. He said many believe that the plan supported by LaSala and county staff does not save money or improve service. He said rather than just cutting costs, they had looked for a way to improve service and efficiencies to save money. He said the fire departments had been good partners with the county and had done their best to reduce expenses unlike the transport provider who actually increased the cost of its service to residents. Incorporating fire-based transport is the best way to sustain the system into the future, he said. He said the countys statement that their plan continues the dual response system currently in use is not quite accurate, although multiple units could still respond to calls that warranted dual response.State lawmakers put the brakes on EMS changes He said the firefighters plan saves money by reducing management and still puts more units on the streets.Response timesSanford said a response time of 4.5 minutes on average could be maintained with the firefighters plan, which is quicker than the 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time that is the countys new standard for level of service. St. Petersburg Fire Chief Jim Large said the countys standard is lower than what has been achieved in the past. He told the legislators that the current average response time in the county is 6.23 minutes 90 percent of the time more than 1 minute faster than the countys mandated standard. Sen. Latvala asked county officials how local response times compared to other areas that use fire-based transport and the county had no answer. The legislators then asked Bill Nesmith, a retired Hillsborough County fire chief, who happened to be in the audience, for the answer. Nesmith worked with Tampa Rescue for 24 years and retired as division chief in 1994. He accepted the position of assistant chief with Hillsborough County Fire Rescue that same year and was promoted to chief in 1996. Nesmith is credited with merging the Hillsborough County Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services. Nesmith said response time goals in Hillsborough were 6 minutes 90 percent of the time in urban areas, 7 minutes 90 percent of the time in the suburbs, and 10 minutes 90 percent of the time in rural areas, which Pinellas does not have. Only the rural areas had a response time greater than Pinellas Countys standard of 7.5 minutes. Nesmith said when Hillsborough merged its two departments no paramedics lost their jobs unless they wanted to go. He said paramedics who wanted to do so were cross-trained as firefighters. Others were placed on ALS engines as paramedics. He said he was concerned about delays in ambulance response, which was the complaint of some of the public, who talked about receiving quick response from the fire department only to end up waiting for an ambulance. Another complaint from the public was the cost of ambulance transport via Sunstar. Large said the countys plan would not really increase the number of units on the streets. He said while it did increase the number of Advanced Life Support units, it decreased the number of units overall. The countys consultant recommends removing smaller rescue units in favor of the larger ALS engines. Large said if that happened, it would mean a reduction of 23 rescue units and 13 paramedics, which could lower response times.Support for fire-based transportThe tide seems to be turning in favor of fire-based transport if it proves to be as affordable as some firefighters believe. The majority of people speaking at the Wednesday afternoon public hearing supported at least exploring the option of fire-based transport. No one spoke in support of the countys plan. St. Petersburg Mayor Foster said up until Nov. 28, the county had refused to discuss fire-based transport, which he also supports. He said his city, the largest in the county, responds to 33 percent of the first responder calls in the county, which explains why it employs the most paramedics and has the highest cost of any provider in the system. Foster objects to the proposed new funding formula that he says would shift the costs to the cities. He said the situation was much like the 1980s when the county tried to change how it paid its providers and lost a lawsuit against St. Petersburg. He warned of more legal action if the county proceeded with marginal cost funding. Others talked about potential problems with priority dispatch, although most agreed there needed to be a better way to do dispatch so multiple units werent called to deal with minor injuries.Millage ratesLargo Fire Chief Mike Wallace doesnt think a change in the special act is necessary. He thinks everything the county needs to manage and fund the system exists today. He showed a chart of historical EMS millage rates for the years 1981-2009, which shows a steady decline in the amount levied. Some residents were unhappy when Pinellas County commissioners raised the EMS millage rate 46 percent for the current fiscal year to 0.85 mils, the same rate levied in 1992. However, some say that the current millage rate is not too much to pay for good service. During much of the 1990s, millage rates hovered around 0.92 before spiking to 1.06 in 1989. The next year it fell to 0.7 mils. In subsequent years, the highest rate was 0.87 in 1993 and 0.75 in 2001. From 2002 to 2005, the millage rate remained the same, 0.66 mils. It was further lowered to 0.63 in 2006 and to 0.58 in 2008 where it remained until the current fiscal year. When voters approved the referendum, which established the current EMS system, they approved a millage cap of 1.5 mils far above what the EMS Authority (county commissioners) has ever levied. Foster faults the county for not raising the millage rate when property values bottomed out and ad valorem tax collections decreased dramatically. Instead, they chose to use up the reserves, he said. Wallace supports raising the millage rate to pay for the system, which he says has already been approved by the voters. He said it would not require amendments to the special act or changes in the funding formula. Large agrees. He said cost containment wasnt the real issue; instead, it is declining revenue due to lower property tax values. Its the millage, he said. Were containing costs fairly well. Large doesnt support any of the local bills. He says the special act should be repealed.Local bills wont be considered this yearAfter listening to the speakers, Sen. Latvala was met by silence when he asked the delegation if anyone had an interest in moving either local bill forward. Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater, said the countys Cadillac system of EMS services had worked beautifully for years, but with less money coming in to pay for it, we now have to shop at the Chevy dealership. He said any major changes to the special act should be approved by the voters. The citizens ought to have a say, he said. Rep. Peter Nehr, R-Palm Harbor, said his sponsorship of the countys bill did not imply an endorsement. He said he agreed to sponsor it to open the matter to debate. He pointed out the vast differences between the two plans. He supported an independent study of both proposals. If we were to vote today, it looks like the support would be for the firefighters, he said. Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg, said it was all about public safety. He said the difference between a response time of 4.5 and 7.5 minutes was life and death. He also supports fire-based transport if it can maintain service levels. Ultimately, he thinks the county and its municipalities should find a way to work it out without asking the state to get in the middle. Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, said there was a mandate from the people that allowed the EMS Authority to charge up to 1.5 mils when the current rate is only 0.85, which means the system probably could be funded by millage. He said a bigger bone of contention was the taxes for fire services in some of the smaller districts. Finally, Sen. Latvala asked to outline a proposal. The biggest point of contention is what Millican-Sanford says it will cost and what the county says it will cost, he said. Theres a huge difference. Somebody is way off. He said the best way to determine who was right in an impartial way was by hiring a nationally recognized accounting firm to study all the numbers. Then we can take further action, he said. LaSala said it would probably take six to eight months for a study to be completed too late for the upcoming legislative session. Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Treasure Island, urged the delegation to support Latvalas proposal. Waiting another one session is worth it if we make the right decision from facts we all can agree to, he said.Photo by TERRE PORTERSen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, talks about the importance of protecting citizens during a Nov. 30 public hearing at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center called by the Pinellas County Legislative Delegation about local bills to amend the Special Act that created the EMS Authority. Latvala is flanked on the left by state Rep. Peter Nehr, R-Palm Harbor, and on the right by state Rep. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg. EMS, from page 1AFurthermore, there should be no us against them mentality, commissioners conceded. However, difficult decisions are necessary, they say, and not everyone will be happy in the end. Weve received a lot of input, Welch said of the two plans currently on the table. The IPS plan, prepared by Integral Performance Solutions, a consultant hired by the county administrator, continues to use Sunstar as the sole provider of ambulance (transport) service and it suggests a new funding formula that would reduce the amount some fire departments would be paid for first responder services. A second plan, prepared by two local firefighters, has fire departments taking over transport services, emergency and non-emergency, eliminating the contract with Paramedics Plus, the company currently operating as Sunstar under the countys license. Welch said the commission had taken some heat for not taking a stand in support of either plan; however, he said it was better that commissioners had taken their time to get feedback from the public and others. Now, the question is where the board wants to go, he said. Welch said he had recently studied the courts judgment in the countys 1989 lawsuit against St. Petersburg, in which the city prevailed. It was pretty striking, he said. If you didnt read the title, it could have been written for 2011.He said it seemed, due to the lawsuit, the county cant require fire departments to use advanced life support engines instead of rescue units and it cant use cost averaging to pay for services two concepts the IPS plan relies on to make EMS more affordable. Is IPS implementable, he asked County Attorney Jim Bennett, who replied that it could be in a cooperative manner, but admitted there could be problems with implementing unilaterally. Weve listened to everyone, thats to our credit, Welch said. He talked about the problem of managing costs using millage only. He said if the commission managed EMS costs using only increases in millage, the rate most likely would have to double to be sufficient. We should not do that (raise the millage to the cap) until we make sure the system is as efficient as it can be, he said. Welch talked about new options on the table since the commission met with St. Petersburg city officials on Oct. 31. The city of St. Petersburg has offered to take the issue of unfunded pension costs off the table a savings of $750,000 a year and several million dollars over the next several years. St. Petersburg also suggested trying a fire-based transport pilot, allowing eight of the citys rescue units to provide transport services during non-peak hours. The revenue would go to the county, just as the revenue generated by Paramedics Plus goes to the county. Id like to see how much it (the pilot) would save, he said. Welch said he would not support any action that was simply managing by millage or just transferring the millage line on the TRIM notice (from county to a municipality). Lastly, Welch said he would like to see an independent review of losses versus revenues from a fire-based transport system versus continuing the contract with Paramedics Plus. Bob Swain with the county attorneys office explained his take on the situation from the perspective of the 1989 court judgment in favor of St. Petersburg. He said the county is required to pay for what fire departments and districts use to provide first responder services. He said without a change to the states special act that created the countywide EMS Authority, the authority (commission) couldnt force change, in particular the recommendation by IPS to use ALS engines instead of rescue units. It would be hard to put ALS in a community that doesnt want it, he said. Welch talked about a worst-case scenario where a city, for example St. Petersburg, would take the county to court and win. That would force the authority to raise the millage, he said. And the city could go after general fund dollars. Swain said since the special act caps the millage rate, that argument may or may not be true. He said the EMS was a separate taxing authority (not acting as the county commission) so there were a lot of unknowns. He said although the amount the authority can raise the millage rate is capped, nothing precluded the commission from allocating more money from other sources to go toward EMS. Discussion turned to the challenges involved with coordination of 18 different entities providing transport services, including licensing requirements, the need to keep the revenue stream currently provided by Sunstar intact and compliance with Medicare regulations. There are definite pros and cons, Welch said. Commission Chair Susan Latvala said splitting up the system was a step backwards. The system was consolidated by the Legislature for a reason, she said. Craig Hare, the countys EMS division manager, said Paramedics Pluss administrative staff was responsible for a variety of programs, including training, medication management, fleet replacement and patient business services, which make sure ambulance runs are billable, among others. He said Paramedics Plus also operated a central warehouse for supplies and delivered them to service providers. Commissioner John Morroni asked Hare about the feasibility of a pilot program. Hare said it would be difficult due to accountability and the design of the current system. He said it was a question of how to run it and implement it. We all know paramedics can take patients to the hospital, he said. Its more the mechanics of the process. Mark Postma, COO for Paramedics Plus Sunstar operation since 2004 and company vice president, said his organization had sat back and idly watched the discussions about different plans to overhaul the countys EMS system. We stand on our merits provided to the county, he said. Were (Paramedics Plus) the largest provider of services in Florida. Most of the commission favored offering Paramedics Plus a one-year extension, or perhaps three one-year extensions. The public and several commissioners advocated getting an independent group involved to review the firefighters plan and the contention that it did not adequately cover costs. Welch advocates an independent study and trying at least the pilot program suggested by St. Petersburg. There are no bad buys, he said. Theres nothing wrong with asking for an independent analysis. The numbers on fire-based transport are all over the place. Commissioner Karen Seel advocates forming a task force to look at the entire system fire services and EMS. She is currently on a listening tour of the different municipalities to find out the issues that a task force should address.

John Michael Lyons, 33, also was charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer; fleeing and eluding with wanton disregard; aggravated assault with a motor vehicle; leaving the scene of an accident with property damage; possession of hydrocodone, diazepam, methadone and morphine. He remains in the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater on bonds in excess of $160,000. The incident started when the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office responded to a hit-and-run traffic crash about 6:46 a.m. Wednesday on the Dunedin Causeway Bridge. The victim, Avria Travelsead, 46, of Largo was parked off the roadway of Causeway Boulevard near the drawbridge doing paperwork as part of his job as foreman for Roland Inc. Lyons was driving a red 2006 Hummer SUV on Causeway Boulevard when he left the roadway and crashed into the rear end of Travelseads 2006 Ford pickup truck. Lyons then backed up and fled the scene. Travelsead immediately called the Sheriffs Office and reported the crash with a description of the suspect vehicle. Deputies spotted the suspect vehicle not far from the scene traveling southbound on U.S. Alt. 19 near San Jose Boulevard in Dunedin. They attempted to make a traffic stop but the suspect refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. The pursuit continued through the Dunedin area onto Hancock Street eastbound from U.S. Alt. 19. The suspect drove over bushes of residences and then back onto Alt. 19 at speeds of 45 mph. Deputies tried to use stop sticks to disable the Hummer at several points in the pursuit, but the suspect was able to see them in the roadway and drove around them. At one point, Lyons saw a deputy deploying stop sticks in the area of Curlew Road and County Road 1, and he drove off the road onto the median at the deputy. The deputy was able to get out of the way. Lyons also attempted to ram and force pursuing deputies off the road several times during the chase. The chase eventually ended back onto Causeway Boulevard as Lyons began driving at speeds exceeding 55 mph not stopping for deputies. At the western end of the causeway is the entrance to Honeymoon Island Park, which was closed. Lyons crashed through the gate into the park continuing westbound. There are no other entrances in or out of the park, which is surrounded by water. Lyons tried to go eastbound back through the entrance but deputies were waiting with stop sticks. Lyons was unable to avoid the sticks and ran over them flattening the tires of the Hummer. He attempted to continue driving but was rammed by a deputy, forcing the Hummer off the road into a power pole at Elgin Place and Causeway Boulevard. When deputies pulled Lyons from the vehicle, he was only wearing a Tshirt and boxer shorts. Deputies found several different types of prescription drugs in his vehicle, including oxycodone, morphine, and eight syringes. Lyons told deputies he was planning on fishing from the causeway when for unknown reasons he went off the road and crashed into Travelsead. Deputies did not find any fishing tackle in his vehicle. By JULIANA A. TORRESPINELLAS PARK Sandra Bradbury, current Pinellas Park councilwoman and daughter of a former mayor, will take over as Pinellas Park mayor in March. It meant a lot that the citizens believed in me, Bradbury said. Im excited to take on the new chapter. Elections for the city of Pinellas Park will be held on Tuesday, March 13. However, when the qualifying period ended Nov. 22, Bradbury was the only candidate who had qualified for mayor. Two candidates qualified for Bradburys current council seat: Pinellas Park business owner Patricia Johnson and community activist Ed Kosinski. The candidates needed 40 petitions from registered voters who are Pinellas Park residents. Initially, 15 of Kosinskis petitions were thrown out because the signatures were from residents of Pinellas County, but not Pinellas Park. He scrambled to replace those the morning the qualifying period ended, he said, and turned in exactly the 40 he needed. Johnson challenged Kosinskis Kosinski said. I feel I can give back to the city too. His opponent is the owner of Amber Glen Feed Depot and Equestrian Center. Both have served on advisory boards for the city of Pinellas Park. I live here, work here, my family is here, my businesses are all here, Johnson said. I feel like I can do some really good things with the council members that are there. Both candidates ran in 2008, the last time there was an open seat on the Pinellas Park City Council. In that election, six candidates vied for the seat eventually won by Councilman Jerry Mullins. Mullins and Councilmen Rick Butler were the sole candidates running for their seats when the qualifying period ended at 1 p.m. this year, City Clerk Diane Corna announced Nov. 22. They effectively have been elected to another fouryear term each, starting in 2012. After current Mayor Bill Mischler announced his retirement Oct. 27, Bradbury resigned her seat on the Pinellas Park City Council, effective in March, to run for mayor. She is the daughter of former Mayor Cecil Bradbury and a longtime resident of the city. The council elected her to act as vice mayor in March, a position shes held in 2003 and 2007.Bradbury to become next mayor of Pinellas Parkpetitions, requiring that the signatures be verified. She said more than 10 residents asked her to challenge Kosinskis petitions, arguing that if only one were wrong, he would be disqualified, and the city would save the cost of an election. However, after a meeting at the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office the morning of Nov. 29, Johnson said she decided not to go through with the challenge. We decided it would be better for the city, she said. Kosinski, who spearheaded a campaign to clean up the Davis Field neighborhood, said he thought he had as good a chance as any to win the two-candidate election The citys been good to me, John Michael LyonsMan charged with attempted murder in car accident Sandra Bradbury CLASSIFIEDSwww.TBNweekly.com

Rodeghero, D.D.S. $10 120811 By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR Could a resolution regarding the future of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel be near? If so, how near? Town officials say at a minimum it will be a year before there is any noticeable change on the property, and that is if all the decisions and plans and procedures dont hit any snags. It is possible the entire process could begin as soon as January, if nothing changes in the meantime. The owners of the property, Daniel and Raphael Ades of Miami, have made it clear that they are not in a position to spend the $100 million they say it would take to rehabilitate the old hotel. The managing member of the ownership group, Matt Cummings, says their priority is to sell it to someone with plenty of money and a commitment to keep the property as a hotel. Were not bad guys, were trying to figure out what to do, he said. If somebody can come up with the money who really is a hotel builder were all for it. We just dont think thats possible. Cummings said he has tried time and time again to find a big hote-Belleview Biltmore Hotels future still anyones guesslier to buy the property and return it to its former glory. But time and time again he has failed. Now the owners have proposed turning the property into upscale town homes, as many as 80 of them, ranging in price from $375,000 to $775,000. They will look like the original buildings with same white shingles and green roofs. They will go from 3,000 square feet to 2,100 square feet, Cummings said. They will be beautiful and they will follow the history and tradition. He said the town homes would maintain some of the actual pieces of the hotel. Well take the Tiffany glass from the ceiling of the ballroom, about 100 pieces and put a piece in each one of the town homes that will really save a lot of the history in the new homes. That would go ahead if no one steps up to buy the property. Cummings has made it clear that a prospective buyer would have to maintain it as a hotel. If they want to build condos then we are not going to sell it, he said. We turned down a really lucrative offer but their offer was for over 400 apartments. We dont want to disgrace the site. The site has history and value. I want to keep the history. In fact the plans call for the actual preservation of a portion of the hotel. If we cant sell the property by say January, well go to the town with a plan to save a portion of the lobby, the upstairs, and the Sunshine Room (carriage porch) and build in it, a museum of the history of the hotel. We would re-create the ice cream shop, he said. How does all that sit with the various players in the scenario? Mayor Gary Katica says while most people would probably like to see the hotel restored it is time to get practical. There is nothing that the town can do but sit and wait until the owners make a decision on what they want to do. They are touting town homes. I can see where the sentiments of the people have changed, he said. The RPD people have lost millions of dollars of value on their condos. The town has lost $250,000 to $300,000 a year on water, sewage and tax money, so something has to happen soon. The president of the Belleview Biltmore Homes Association, Jim White agrees. He said the presence of the hotel makes it tough to even sell a property in the area. I mean from driving in the gate and looking at that building, how do you explain to a prospective buyer how long that is going to be there, and what is going to replace it? You cant. White said the town home option is one they would welcome. Basically the sense of the board was high end townhouses would be very good. On the other hand the zoning process is complicated and could take as much as two years. He isnt far wrong with his timetable. Town Manager Micah Maxwell said both the demolition and zoning process is complex and will take time. They would have to go through demolition process first. It is a lot more significant than any other building. Historical preservation ordinance requires a certificate of appropriateness. Thats a state document with its own set of rules. Then it must go through the Historical Preservation Board and then the Planning and Zoning Board and then to the (Belleair) commission. Then they can demo. That alone he says could take up to three months at least and possibly as much as six months. Then the site plans and construction plans and land use changes have to be dealt with. So it will be a minimum of a year before anything is done to the property. For Katica it cant come soon enough. Even while admitting hed like to see the hotel restored, he isnt sure it is possible. Particularly after a tour of the inside of the building recently. I was in the hotel about three weeks ago and it was very depressing and I was just on the ground floor, he said. The odor was overbearing, the ceilings parts had come down, and I walked into the Tiffany ballroom and sat there and cried when I saw it. I had been there for weddings and conventions and the place had such a great life to it. To see it like this ... Katica said the hotel has reached the point of diminishing returns and predicts, will be a tough year for the Biltmore. begun the process of determining if an underutilized state asset can be put back to work to help create jobs and new economic activity in central Pinellas County. The old Sunshine Speedway not only generated family-oriented entertainment, but also fostered a number of small auto repair businesses in the corridor between Ulmerton Road and 118th Avenue North. This property was purchased by the state for the Roosevelt Boulevard connector, which has been postponed. Constituents of the senator have suggested re-opening the speedway in the interim, which he then discussed with FDOT. Officials have now agreed to advertise for bids on leasing the property. This is a win-win situation for the state, which will receive rent until it is used for road construction, and for the community, which will benefit from jobs at the facility and in the collateral auto repair businesses related to the track, Latvala said. For more information, call Latvalas office at 556-6500.Cameras focus on PSTA hybrid busesA production crew from Carmel, Ind., was crisscrossing Pinellas County while shooting a video featuring Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authoritys diesel electric hybrid buses. The fuel economy on our hybrids has been consistently 26 to 40 percent better than the standard diesel buses. When the manufacturer of the bus transmissions found out, they asked if they could feature our buses in a promotional video, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Of course were always eager to be featured as a transit success story. The video crew began taping PSTA buses and staff Nov. 29, and was expected to wrap up the shoot by the end of the week. Once finished, the video will be used worldwide by Allison Transmission to promote the companys diesel electric transmissions, which are the heart of the hybrid bus technology. Currently, PSTA has a fleet of 191 buses, 24 of which are hybrids. Another eight are on order with delivery expected late summer or early fall. The fuel efficiency of the hybrids varies with the routes the buses run. Lower speed, frequent stop routes get the highest mileage, because they maximize the use of electric power cells rather than using diesel fuel. When the PSTA Board of Directors authorized the agencys first purchase of hybrid buses in 2008, board members were told to expect a fuel efficiency increase of approximately 20 percent over standard diesel buses. Since the agency was using about 2.1 million gallons of fuel a year and prices were going through the roof, it was a logical decision, PSTA officials said. Now, three years and 24 hybrid buses later, the decision has paid off. Not only are the diesel electric buses cutting fuel costs, but they reduce emissions by 90 percent or better over standard diesel models, so they benefit our bottom line, the environment and our community, said Miller.Long-time Pinellas County educator diesLARGO Funeral services for School Board member Lew Williams will be held Saturday, Dec. 10, 1 p.m. at First Baptist Institutional Church, 3100 Third Ave. S., St. Petersburg. Williams, who had undergone heart surgery late last week, died Dec. 3. Lews sweet spirit will be sorely missed, as will his love of young people and the passion he had for their well-being and learning, Superintendent John Stewart said in a statement posted at the Pinellas County Schools website. Williams was elected to the School Board in November 2010. He is a well-known community supporter and former Pinellas County School administrator. Williams began his career in education in 1970 as a social studies teacher. He served as principal at Fairmont Park, South Ward and Dunedin elementary schools, and Seminole Middle and Pinellas Park High schools. In 1987, he became director of school operations and was later promoted to associate superintendent for pupil assignment and area II superintendent until his retirement in 2005.

Pattabhi Jois.120811 120811 The wet days of summer are gone and the dry season is now upon us. Plants that were continually wet all summer may have lost some of their root system due to lack of oxygen. Now, as the weather dries, they have less of a root system to gather precious water. We can help plants thrive with proper watering, both during the wet and dry season. Selecting plants for the site conditions is the best, low maintenance way to go. Hopefully, you turned off your irrigation system during the wet summer. As long as plants are getting rain every few days during the summer, or if the soil is staying saturated, there is no need to apply water. As the soil starts to dry out and the rain frequency slows down we need to pay close attention to our plants. Many plants will start to wilt under drought stress, but they can also wilt if they have a rotted root system from too much water. It is important to check the soil moisture. Pull away the mulch and test the soil with your finger. Poke down about two or three inches and see if you feel any moisture. If it is dry all the way down then you probably need to apply water, especially if the plant is wilting. It is best to water early in the morning to avoid disease development. When plants are watered late in the day, they will stay wet for a much longer time period and this allows fungal diseases to infect them. If you can water at 6 a.m. that is much better than 6 p.m. It also is best to water deeply and infrequently, rather than shallowly and frequently. Watering deeply allows the root system to go deeper in the soil and allows the plant to become more drought-tolerant. It is usually best to apply one-half to threefourths inch of water and then wait for symptoms of wilt before watering again. This will promote a deeper root system and a healthier plant. Use a rain gauge to know how much water has already been supplied by rainfall. Plant beds should be on a different irrigation zone than lawn areas because they usually need to be watered less often than grass. Installing drip irrigation to plant bed areas is easy and can save water, too. Check all irrigation systems at least once a month and repair any leaks or broken heads. Irrigation heads should spray from head to head for proper coverage. Make sure that driveways and sidewalks arent getting watered (they dont need it). Fall is a great time to apply mulch. It works both as a weed preventer and a water conserver. Just be sure to keep it away from the plant base, as it should not cover the root ball area. Mulch can prevent water from getting to the plant roots if it covers the root ball. Make your grass more drought-tolerant by raising the mower height. Standard St. Augustine varieties, like Floratam, Palmetto or Bitterblue, should be mowed at 4 inches. Dwarf St. Augustine varieties, like Sapphire, Seville or Captiva, should be mowed at 2.5 inches. If you are looking at all the growth that took place during the summer and wanting to hack it back dont. This is the wrong time of year to prune most plants. Spring flowering shrubs, like azalea, should be pruned in late spring. Plants that flower on this years growth (hibiscus, rose, crape myrtle) should be pruned while dormant or just before the spring growth spurt. Shade trees should be pruned during dorMany plants will start to wilt under drought stress.mancy (winter) or just after a growth flush. Most evergreens, (podocarpus, holly, ligustrum) can be lightly pruned anytime. A rule of thumb is to leave at least two-thirds of the plant intact.

With cold fronts coming through late-week, brisk north winds will prevail for a couple of days until high pressure settles in and we start to see those east winds again, and just about the time those winds lighten up enough to make things feel comfortable out there, you can pretty much plan on another one coming through. Days with light east winds have allowed for short offshore runs into the gulf for the tasty white grunts, sea bass and porgies. Depths of 25 to 30 foot have been most productive for the grunts and porgies and shallower ledges in 15 to 20 foot have been best for sea bass. Squid will work for all three species, but a piece of sardine or small white bait works best for the sea bass. Inshore fishing has been tough over the past week; a major cool down followed by strong winds will usually put fish off for a few days. With any luck this weeks front wont be nearly as dramatic. Full moon tides will hopefully have fish on the feed. Morning negative low tides will give you a chance to stalk tailing redfish if the winds arent too strong. A live select shrimp will get the job done. If the winds blowin anchor up and fish with cut ladyfish or pinfish on the bottom. Morning mid-level high tides this week will have redfish, gator trout and sheepshead cruising the flats searching for crustaceans and bait fish before this next front comes through. If the winds stay light and the skies are clear, sight fishing can be excellent. Drifting, poling or running the trolling motor on low will allow you to get close enough to the fish for an accurate shot. Once a productive area is found stake off and patiently wait for fish to come within range. A live select shrimp tail hooked is the bait of choice; however a weed-less rigged soft plastic jerk bait in watermelon/red flake works quite well. Sheepshead are all over the flats and are pretty tricky to catch when theyre that shallow. As the water continues to cool off and we get on these big moon phases, look for the sheepshead to school up around the bridges and jetties. Fresh pieces of shrimp or live fiddler crabs work great for sheepshead. Just be sure to use a small enough hook so that you stand a better chance for hookups. Until next week, get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Decorating for the holidays most always includes using plants and flowers to beautify our environment. There are many plants and flowers that are toxic to pets but only a few of the most popular holiday plants will be discussed here. It is important to know what parts of the plant or flower are toxic and what symptoms your pet may experience. Holly is used in making wreaths or decorating mantles. It is the berries that are toxic. The severity of the symptoms usually correlates with how many berries are eaten. The symptoms seen after ingestion are vomiting, diarrhea, and depression. Mistletoe is customarily hung in doorways so that when two people are under the mistletoe at the same time they are obliged to kiss. The berries are toxic but some sources say that the leaves and stem are more toxic than the berries. Either way, it is important to make sure that these are not ingested. This plant can cause significant vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, decreased heart rate, erratic behavior, sudden collapse and even death. Amaryllis (with red or red and white flowers) is very popular during the holiday season. It is the flower that is most toxic. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, depressed appetite, excessive salivation, tremors, and sometimes abdominal pain. Poinsettia is probably the most frequently seen holiday plant. It is the sap from the leaves (not the flower) that can be irritating if ingested. If enough is eaten it can cause vomiting but it is basically nontoxic. Christmas cactus only blooms around Christmas time and is generally used for center pieces. This plant is mainly toxic only in large quantities. Vomiting and diarrhea sometimes with blood, and depression are the typical symptoms. Christmas rose is a plant with a white flower. The entire plant is toxic. The most commonly seen symptoms are diarrhea with blood, abdominal pain, vomiting, and delirium. Jerusalem cherry is a plant that has orange and red berries and is typically used as a centerpiece. These berries are extremely toxic especially in the green and yellow states. Ingestion results in vomiting, diarrhea, depression, mouth ulcers, shock, and even death. It is extremely important to contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency clinic if you suspect your pet has ingested a toxic plant. The more information you can give your veterinarian the better. Knowing what type of plant was ingested, how much was ingested, the time of ingestion, and what symptoms your pet is showing will help your veterinarian take appropriate action.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, December 8, 2011The Clearwater City Council has set aside $100,123 to fund a plan that has much potential for economic development in the city. Despite the costs involved, the council needs to take such steps to lay the groundwork to improve the business climate in the city. Along those lines, an economic development specialist will be hired at a cost of $52,746 to conduct research, support business retention and expansion efforts and implement other aspects of the plan. The plan prepared by TIP Strategies Inc., a Texas consulting firm, envisions an employment center overlay district, a technology district in the Cleveland Street corridor and medical overlay district near Morton Plant Hospital. The idea is to accomplish the goals through business friendly initiatives, a formal incentive policy and a business retention and expansion program as well as using tourism marketing to create business opportunities. Such goals mirror some of the recommendations in the Clearwater Business Task Forces final report, issued in August. During its review, the task force found that the citys process is viewed by the general public and business community as too complicated, time-consuming and expensive. The task force recommended that the city should adopt a culture of becoming customer-centric, requiring that services be designed around customers needs. The city should have a proactive strategy if it wishes to be recognized as the premier place to do business in the Tampa Bay region among surrounding municipalities that have adopted more user-friendly codes and services, the task force said. City of Largo officials also have embraced more business-friendly practices, and officials say they are hearing positive comments from the business community, after years of hearing complaints. Certainly, improving business opportunities in any city takes time, especially in a sputtering economy. A multi-faceted approach, looking at the array of city community development services and regulation, often is needed. But if Clearwater officials continue to make economic development and business-friendly incentives a priority, they should see results. The costs to achieve the necessary goals may raise eyebrows, but major changes in communities often require a solid commitment from the pocketbooks as well as the lips. A newspapers obituary page is a thing of great comfort, if you regard it the right way. Its the most democratic part of the paper, in that it focuses on one of the few things that happens to us all dying. Its where we average blokes are finally able to stand eye-to-eye with the captains and the kings of the world. Some obituaries are grandiose and gassy; others are so brief they make you wonder how and why an entire life can be reduced to a few lines. Many obits do not completely or accurately reflect the life of the deceased. Rather, they state only what the survivors wish to have the public believe. The numbers of dead folks who die surrounded by a devoted spouse and children are roughly ten times more numerous than the totals of genuinely happy families. Or so I have suspected over the years. Some obits list cause of death; others do not. Im astounded and alarmed by the number of women who succumb to breast cancer. I hear that progress is being made against cancer (and it surely should be, if the number of fundraising road races, marches and dinners are any indication), but the obit pages dont seem to show it. When the cause of death is not stated, readers are left to wonder why. Possibly (although by no means necessarily) the death is the result of alcoholism, drug use, HIV infection or suicide. Even when the alcoholic or drug addict has been sober and straight for the final years of his/her life, its rare to see that triumph mentioned in the obit. Each time I read an obit page Im relieved to find no mention of my name or that of my friends. Im fascinated by the varying eternal destinations of the departed. Some go to a final resting-place. Others to the waiting arms of Jesus or the Lord God Jehovah. Still others go to rejoin their predeceased family members or poker buddies. Many simply die. Its nice that we all have these choices. If a family wanted an obit to read Harry kicked the bucket or Julie finally bought the farm, would a newspaper allow such colloquial references? I dont see why not. Such offhand phrasing would in no way demean the other obits on the page. If you think you stay well-informed about whos who in the world, reading the obit pages will quickly persuade you otherwise. Each week Ill encounter the obits of geniuses and titans of science, finance, literature, government and entertainment none of whom Ill have heard of until the day they die. A similar reaction occurs when I read the obit of someone I thought had died years ago. A recent example was the death of the New York Times political reporter Tom Wicker. I had thought he cashed in his chips years ago. Turns out he was only retired. Maybe thats why some folks refuse to retire. They equate retirement with death. I suppose there are some similarities. I own a marvelous paperback book titled The Portable Obituary How the Famous, Rich and Powerful Really Died. The author is Michael Largo, who must have spent several years digging through obits and news reports following the deaths of hundreds of well-known and less known public figures. The entries in this book tell as much or more about the subjects lives as about their deaths. Example: Stephen Foster, Americas first composer of popular songs (Beautiful Dreamer, Oh, Susanna, and Old Folks at Home) earned only $15,091 for his entire lifetimes work. Music companies and other thieves stole his royalties, and Foster drank away what little was left. At his death in 1864, he had 38 cents in his pocket. If you ask a thousand people, What are your thoughts about death? youll get a thousand different answers. Pianist Oscar Levant was so afraid of death he refused to allow its mention by anyone in his presence. I feel sorry for anyone like that. I especially am saddened by people who believe in hell, and who therefore fear going there. Comedian Woody Allens most famous quote about death: Im not afraid of dying. I just dont want to be there when it happens. Actress Katharine Hepburn said Death will be a great relief no more interviews. Playwright August Wilson: Death aint nothing but a fastball on the outside corner. Philosopher and atheist Richard Dawkins: Being dead will be no different from being unborn I shall be just as I was in the time of William the Conqueror or the dinosaurs or the trilobites. There is nothing to fear in that. Perhaps the healthiest attitude toward death was expressed by J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan. He said, To die will be an awfully big adventure.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net.An examination of the obituary pageKudos for Rep. YoungEditor: I would like to recognize U.S. Rep. Bill Young for his leadership that has resulted in outstanding benefits for our deserving elders. I was pleased to help honor him with the 2011 RetireSafe Standing Up For Americas Seniors Award in his district office on Nov. 28. During Youngs many decades of service, he has championed legislation that helps seniors. During the 111th Congress he supported many bills, including the Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients Act; the Medicare Patient IVIG Access Act; and the Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act, all serving to increase access to care. He also founded the Congressional Social Security Caucus, which is dedicated to protecting and preserving the Social Security system. He genuinely cares about seniors. RetireSafe, who led the award, is recognizing a bipartisan group of U.S. representatives across the country that put seniors first, and it is only fitting that Rep. Bill Young is among them. Austin Curry Executive director Elder Care Advocacy of FloridaThanks for the donationsEditor: On behalf of the staff, teachers and students of Largo High School, we want to thank you for the donations of flowers, shrubbery and plants that you have given us over the past year. Last year we asked that you donate your poinsettias instead of trashing them. Wow, you sure did. Unfortunately, as you know, not everything you plant makes it. The ones that did survive look wonderful. We have our finest plant next to the administration. Its about 4 feet high and doing well. Ive had people ask why Im spending money on plants when the school is needing tighter spending. I hope this will explain where we get our plant supplies. We ask people at garage sales, landscapers who have over ordered and they have been generous. I bring many things from my own yard. Ive traded other folks for what I have for something they have. Also, I am a volunteer. Happily many of our students help us out in keeping the campus looking good. So I hope this answers your questions. Now, if you have a plant or etc. that you dont want, please call me. Ill help you extract it from the ground and I will plant it on the grounds. Thank you all for mentoring our school. I must confess I graduated from LHS class of 1959. Yes, thats right, Im older than mud. We work at LHS with all of our employees; our maintenance team is the best in the county. Our teachers and coaches are the best. Just look at our athletic teams. Far above the rest of the county. Well, thats my personal opinion. So before you throw away your Thanksgiving and Christmas flowers, please consider dropping them off to LHS. We thank you in advance. Marie F. Hoke-Singer Master gardener Largo In 2008, I wrote a book called Liberal Fascism. That title came from H.G. Wells, one of the most important socialist writers in the English language. He believed, as did his fellow Fabian socialists, that Western democratic capitalism had outlived its usefulness. What was needed was a new, bold, forward-thinking system run by experts with access to the most modern techniques. For Wells, the label for such a system mattered less than the imperative that we implement a revolution-from-above. He admired how the Germans, Italians and Russians were getting things done. In 1932 he proposed calling his revolutionary movement enlightened Nazism or liberal fascism. Wells was hardly alone. Such arguments were being made in all the Western democracies, under a thousand different banners. Most progressives rejected terms like fascist or Communist, but they still touted foreign tyrannies as superior to the outmoded democratic capitalism of the 19th century. Lincoln Steffens, the muckraking journalist, was a great fan of both Italian fascism and Soviet communism. He returned from a trip to Russia to proclaim, I have seen the future, and it works! Some things never change. Andy Stern announced recently that hes been to the future, and it works. In this case, the future resides in China, which he says has a superior economic system. The conservative-preferred, free-market fundamentalist, shareholder-only model so successful in the 20th century is being thrown onto the trash heap of history in the 21st century. Whos Andy Stern? Hes just the guy who, until last year, ran the Service Employees International Union, which under his leadership spent more than any organization to get Obama elected in 2008, some $28 million. Comparatively, Sterns influence in the Democratic Party eclipses that of, say, the allegedly sinister Koch brothers or anti-tax activist Grover Norquist among Republicans. Stern himself visited the White House more than any other person during Obamas first year in office (53 times). Stern sees the Chinese governments allegedly keen ability to plan its way to prosperity as the new model for America. It is an argument of profound asininity. China had five-year plans before it started getting rich. Under the old five-year plans, China killed tens of millions of its own people and remained mired in poverty. What made China rich wasnt planning, it was the decision to switch to markets (albeit corrupt ones). The planners were merely in charge of distributing the wealth that markets created. Indeed, rapid economic growth always makes government planners look like geniuses when the reality is that the planners are more like self-proclaimed rainmakers who started dancing only after it started raining. When the rain stops, which it will, theyll have much to answer for. Oh, and what about labor? Theres one labor union in China, and its run by the government. (The Nazis had pretty much the same system.) Stern doesnt seem to care. More intriguingly, SEIU is a huge supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which, taken at its word, is most concerned with income inequality and the back-room corruption that comes from crony capitalism. And Stern touts China as the model for how to fix things? China has 115 billionaires and at least 115 million people living on a dollar a day or less. Nearly all of those billionaires got rich gaming a corrupt political system. Obviously, the core problem with China envy is not economic but moral. To the extent that Chinas economic planning works, it does so because China is an authoritarian country. (Japan has been planning its economy within democratic restraints and has been dying on the economic vine for nearly 20 years.) You can hit your building quota a lot more easily when you can shoot inconvenient people and trample property rights at will. The Three Gorges Dam displaced more than a million people who were given three choices: move, jail, death. Stern joins a long list of liberals whove seen China embrace authoritarian capitalism and conclude that the secret to that success had to be the authoritarianism. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, my usual whipping boy in this department, has written thousands of words rhapsodizing about his envy of China. President Obama himself has said hes envious of Chinas president and has touted Chinas infrastructure spending as something to emulate. If you want to copy China because its authoritarian capitalism is better than our democratic capitalism, it seems pretty obvious that what you envy is the authoritarianism. H.G. Wells had a phrase for that.Jonah Goldberg is editor-at-large of National Review Online and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Its not easy dealing with office goodies and partiesTis the season for break room treats and office social gatherings. Between office festivities, and finding the need to accommodate the mountain of party invites throughout the holiday season, it is easy to find yourself a little worn down. Incorporating active fun and healthy food into the office holiday season can keep your staff from being physically drained and unproductive. Lunch hour: Get out of your chair and enjoy Tampa Bays sunshine! Break up that long workday with a little bit of playtime. Recess isnt just for the schoolyards anymore. An active body leads to a fit and healthy brain. Whether by yourself or with your colleagues its time to rejuvenate just like the good ol days on the playground! Head out for a brisk walk or start a pick-up game. Four square, Frisbee or hopscotch anyone? Break room treats: It seems like this time of year you come to work and become drowned in a sea of high-calorie deliciousness. Cookies, brownies, and festive treats galore. Combat the goodies by challenging your co-workers to bring in healthy-inspired treats. Whoever brings in the most health-conscious (and tasty) yummies wins the title of the office fun-meister. Deck the halls. Instead of making the office intern put together the office tree and hang up the wreath, grab the entire staff and make an afternoon of decking the halls. Not only will the celebration bring joyful smiles and bonding among the office, but employees will get a workout. Team building: Tackle extra pounds before the New Year arrives. Band together with coworkers to achieve weight loss goals by starting now. The holidays are a perfect time to get together with your favorite office buddies and challenge each other to battle the bulge. Share holiday season successes via email, such as: This weekend I escaped my sisters annual party without eating 12 crab rangoons my fave! It will brighten up the day by providing a few laughs. Plus, everyone will gain the support they need to fend of the dreaded holiday pounds. Make the switch! Dont let holiday party beverages become the Grinch who stole your fabulous waistline. Ditch the office party eggnog and champagne for healthful, yet flavorful alternatives. Make the office fruit punch sparkle with a little sugar-free punch mix and flavored sparkling water.

Peripheral Arterial Disease occurs when cholesterol causes blockages in the leg, which impede blood flow to the lower extremities. Getting that blood pumping the way it should is getting easier thanks to new technology call Stealth. Stealth is used to restore blood flow to extremities in an effort to avoid amputation. The device uses a diamond coated burr to cut through plaque in the small vessels in the leg, said Merrill Krolick, D.O., and interventional cardiologist, in a press release. The procedure is done without a surgical incision. Dr. Krolick is one of the first in the area to use the Stealth at Largo Medical Center, said Janet Morra, vice president of cardiovascular services at Largo Medical Center. Patients can often have their procedure done early in the morning and are discharged later the same day. It is estimated that 12 million Americans suffer from PAD. It will often present with symptoms including: tired legs, heaviness in the legs, non-healing ulcers, and pain while walking. People who have this disorder may have underlying coronary artery disease and can die of a heart attack. PAD is a serious condition that if not treated can lead to painful legs, gangrene, and removal of toes or even removal of a limb. It is important that an evaluation of the peripheral circulation be done and to make every effort to restore any impaired blood flow to the limb. Krolick says patients who may not be well enough for an open surgical procedure to restore circulation, can be treated safely with this technique.Relay for Life event setLARGO A Relay for Life Largo Team Party will take place Wednesday, Dec. 13, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at Everest University, 1199 East Bay Drive.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:New Years EveGenre: Romance and comedy Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Hillary Swank, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfierffer and Lea Michele Director: Garry Marshall Rated: PG-13 Director/producer Garry Marshall is joined by a stellar ensemble cast to ring in the 2011 holiday season with the romantic comedy New Years Eve. New Years Eve celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, with intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year. The SitterGenre: Comedy Cast: Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor, Max Records, Kevin Hernandez and J.B. Smoove Director: David Gordon Green Rated: R When the worlds most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the worlds worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, its anyones guess whos going to make it home in one piece. The Sitter is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Jonah Hill.Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, SpyGenre: Adaptation and thriller Cast: Gary Oldman, Kathy Burke, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and John Hurt Director: Tomas Alfredson Rated: R The time is 1973. The Cold War of the mid-20th Century continues to damage international relations. Britains Secret Intelligence Service, aka MI6 and code-named the Circus, is striving to keep pace with other countries espionage efforts and to keep the U.K. secure. The head of the Circus, known as Control (John Hurt), personally sends dedicated operative Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) into Hungary. But Jims mission goes bloodily awry, and Control is forced out of the Circus as is his top lieutenant, George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a career spy with razor-sharp senses. Estranged from his absent wife Ann, Smiley is soon called in to see undersecretary Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney); he is to be rehired in secret at the governments behest, as there is a gnawing fear that the Circus has long been compromised by a double agent, or mole, working for the Soviets and jeopardizing England. Supported by younger agent Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch), Smiley parses Circus activities past and present. In trying to track and identify the mole, Smiley is haunted by his decades-earlier interaction with the shadowy Russian spymaster Karla. The moles trail remains cold until maverick field agent Ricki Tarr (Tom Hardy) unexpectedly contacts Lacon. While undercover in Turkey, Ricki has fallen for a betrayed married woman, Irina (Svetlana Khodchenkova), who claims to possess crucial intelligence.

They are the ambitious Percy Alleline (Toby Jones), whom he had code-named Tinker; suavely confident Bill Haydon (Colin Firth), dubbed Tailor; stalwart Roy Bland (Ciaran Hinds), called Soldier; officious Toby Esterhase (David Dencik), dubbed Poor Man; and Smiley himself.Even before the startling truth is revealed, the emotional and physical tolls on the players enmeshed in the deadly international spy game will escalate.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.I Melt With YouGenre: Thriller and drama Cast: Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, Christian McKay and Carla Gugino Director: Mark Pellington Rated: R Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Tim (Christian McKay), and Jonathan (Rob Lowe) are friends from college who gather for a weekend each year to celebrate their friendship and catch up with each other. On the surface, they look like other men going through life: They have careers and families and responsibilities. But as with many people, there is more to them than meets the eye. As the weekend progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess. Fueled by sex, drugs, and rock n roll, their bacchanalian reunion drives them to an unexpected place where they are forced to confront themselves and the choices theyve made.Young AdultGenre: Comedy Cast: Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson, Elizabeth Reaser and Collette Wolfe Director: Jason Reitman Rated: R Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson).

Open Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day Live Entertainment Nightly When attending a performance of Alan Ayckbourns 1994 drama-comedy Communicating Doors, the first thing that comes to mind is how much Rod Serling (of Twilight Zone fame) would have enjoyed the play. Ayckbourn, a prolific English playwright, uses a device straight out of the golden age of science fiction to set up this drama that is at times wildly comic and at times splendidly suspenseful. West Coast Players thoroughly engaging production of Communicating Doors runs through Dec. 18 at West Coast Players Theatre, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. What is Ayckbourns clever device? The Communicating Doors of the plays title are in fact a set of doors found in a sixth-floor suite in the five-star Regal Hotel. The doors dont lead to a run-of-the-mill broom closet, though: They allow characters to travel through time with some restrictions. The play opens in 2014. Julian, a clearly coldblooded businessman and apparent caregiver, has negotiated the services of Poopay, a prostitute/dominatrix, for his lifelong business partner Reece, a frail and elderly man. When Julian leaves the two alone, Reece reveals he isnt interested in her professional services. Reece wants her to sign a document as witness to his confession of a lifetime of transgressions and wrongdoing. Once she has signed it, Reece beseeches her to deliver it to a specific attorney. It is revealed that while Reece has enjoyed a prosperous life, his success came at a high price: He admits to a string of atrocious acts and admits Julian murdered two of his wives. Before Poopay can leave the hotel suite, Julian realizes Reece has spilled the beans and that he cant allow the prostitute to escape. Escape she does, however, through the time-warping doors delivering her back 20 years to the same room and introducing her to Reeces second wife, Ruella. Of course, Poopay doesnt immediately realize what has happened and its fun to watch the two women try to reason things out. Eventually, Ruella has a go at the doors, too. Heres where those time-traveling restrictions come into play. Poopay can only travel back and forth between 2014 and 1994; Ruella can only travel back and forth between 1994 and 1974. Fortunately, each accessible point in time happens to be a crucial moment in Reeces life. Ruella, for instance, stumbles into the room in 1974 interrupting Reeces honeymoon with his first wife, Jessica. Communicating Doors seems to draw from a number of sources, including the classic British bedroom farce, Serlings brand of character-driven science-fiction storytelling and Alfred Hitchcocks tense psychological thriller. Ayckbourn clearly intends the play as a study of the concepts of fortune and free will, but his presentation is cyclically witty, persuasive and poignant. Directed by Ashlie Mohney, West Coast Players production of Communicating Doors stars Janice Creneti as Ruella, Tara Fuller as Jessica, Andrew Hughes as Reece, John Kobasic as Harold, Julia Rudgers as Poopay and Gary L. Smith as Julian. Rudgers manages to capture the inconsistency of her character in the opening scene: Of all the players in Communicating Doors, Poopay whose real name is Phoebe seems dislodged in time, as though something has gone amiss. That disoriented and adrift aura Rudgers exudes gets the audience on her side. Rudgers is no weak Poopay, though her frequent wisecracks are delivered with merciless cynicism. As Julian, Smith is cold and callous and a little creepy. Smith does a wonderful job making the character magnificently menacing a necessity since Julian has to intimidate an indomitable dominatrix. Creneti shines as Ruella. Ruella is the plays puzzle master, solving the riddle of the doors and motivating the other characters into action. Creneti, who gave a brilliant performance in West Coast Players production of Small Craft Warnings in October, exemplifies the levelheaded hero. In contrast, Jessica, Reeces first wife, isnt the brightest bulb in the chandelier. Fuller does a fine job of presenting Jessica as someone who might argue with a signpost without making her seem so dimwitted that she cant comprehend Ruellas repeated warnings. Moreover, Fuller emphasizes Jessicas innocence and completes the power triumvirate between the three women. Kobasic plays the hopelessly perplexed Harold, hotel security man. The more confused Harold becomes, the funnier Kobasic is. Finally, Hughes portrays Reece. Hughes was seen recently in Eight OClock Theatres production of Mister Roberts. Hughes successfully conveys a considerable conversion of character. In fact, he does such a fine job of making the penitent Reece so repellent that its difficult to find any compassion for the character. In a way, Reece is the plays weakest point but its not the fault of Hughes. More than likely, Ayckbourn kept this character decidedly detached and unapproachable in the opening scene, a choice that elicits little or no sympathy for him from audience members throughout the course of the play. But Communicating Doors isnt so much about Reeces potential redemption as it is about challenging predestination and empowerment. Upon grasping their respective futures in the initial time-line, Poopay, Ruella and Jessica act accordingly in the hopes of altering their lives. Audiences of all ages will enjoy Ayckbourns suspenseful, science-fiction tinged play. Because of the time-traveling twist, Communicating Doors might hold special appeal as an introduction to theater for younger generations particularly the 20and 30somethings who have found a new attraction to the genre through television shows such as Doctor Who, Fringe and Terra Nova. Of course, as the director points out in her notes, time travel has been the vehicle of the imagination of authors and filmmakers for years. Often we have wished that in real life we could turn back the hands of time to alter lifes events, Mohney writes. Mohney acknowledges, though, that Communicating Doors is too complex to describe as a simple timetravel story. It is the message of redemption and the ability to alter ones fate through personal action, as Mohney puts it, that lies at the heart of this engrossing play. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Matinees are Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, students and military. For reservations, call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org.
