City to discuss golf courses futureCommissioners to address management proposals at work session By TOM GERMONDLARGO City commissioners will discuss proposals April 10 that are expected to lead to a decision on whether the city will continue to run the Largo Golf Course. City Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne said staff is going to be objective and show commissioners the upside, downsides, the risks of the three proposals, which also include allowing the city to continue to run the course. Byrne gave an update to the citys Recreation, Parks and Arts Board March 26 at the Southwest Recreation Complex. She said the city received three proposals that staff considered viable, and officials conducted telephone interviews with all of them. One was eliminated. One of the companies, Billy Casper Golf of Vienna, Va., which has 125 facilities in 27 states, would charge a management fee, and the city would retain the revenue and the expenses. Another company, Pope Golf of Sarasota, which has managed or has been involved with nearly 40 golf course operations, wants to lease the Largo Golf Course from the city. Under that agreement, they pay us a fee and we would turn over the keys and say take good care of it, Byrne said. Again, theres pros and cons to both, she said. The risks are if things dont go well, where will the companies make up the revenue because they are not in business to lose money, either, Byrne said. City officials also will present a proposal through which staff will continue to operate a golf course, showing changes in staffing plans, and city officials will outline all the things we have done differently to improve the golf courses revenue stream. The one thing that we cant guarantee as a staff proposal, is that there are no risks, Byrne said. There are certain things that are kind of out of your See GOLF COURSE, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .16A Classieds . . . . . . . . .4-7B Community . . . . . . . .18-19A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-9A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-3,8B Gardening . . . . . . . . . .12A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .2-3A Outdoors . . . . . . . . .12-13A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .19A Police beat . . . . . . . . .5-6A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .10A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .11A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .17A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising COUNTYPrice at the pump continues to riseAs politicians continue to point fingers of blame and experts spout their varying opinions, one things for sure, Americans are feeling the pain as gasoline prices continue an upward march. As of March 25, motorists in the TampaSt. Petersburg-Clearwater metro area were paying an average of $3.87 for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline, according to AAA Motor Clubs Daily Fuel Gauge Report. Thats 10 cents more than last week, 22 cents more than the same date in February and 36 cents more than it was on March 25, 2011. The average price in Florida is $3.90, and the national average is $3.89. National average prices of regular unleaded gasoline rose by 28 cents in February 2011 and in 2012; and on the surface some of this years price drivers resemble those seen last year, the EIA said. Among the factors behind last years price hike was violence in Libya, which shut down most of that countrys oil production. While Libya is returning to production, other areas of the world now are experiencing political difficulties. The economic crisis in parts of Europe is a contributing factor, as is reductions in refining capabilities on the U.S. East Coast, the Caribbean and the European side of the Atlantic basin.

They nest in mangroves or other trees and feed on aquatic life.Fishing expedition By TOM GERMOND LARGO A restroom, parking area, landscaping and other improvements could be made along the Pinellas Trail where at intersects with West Bay Drive under a project city officials are considering. City commissioners voted 5-1 March 20 to authorize $79,809 for engineering work for the West Bay Drive area project. The purpose of the project is to provide trail access, enhance aesthetics and connect the trail to the downtown businesses, residential neighborhoods and premium transit routes, city officials said. The goal of the citys project is to create a gateway as well as a trailhead on the Pinellas Trail within the citys downtown, City Engineer Leland Dicus said. A large open right of way area where there is an opportunity for parking areas exists along 12th Street adjacent to the trail. Potential improvements include the installation of directional signs, street trees and landscaping and restrooms. Commissioner Curtis Holmes questioned the need for the project, voting against it. We are not Dunedin, we are not Tarpon Springs, we are not Palm Harbor. Because the difference of the trail in those communities is the trail literally goes through town. The Pinellas Trail doesnt go through any portion of the retail area of downtown Largo, he said. A frequent trail rider, Holmes said trail users are not going to go to Publix or a hardware store along West Bay Drive. I dont understand why we are trying to make the trail into something there is virtually no chance of it coming in to Largo, Holmes said. He asked if spending $80,000 from tax revenue generated downtown on the trail project is the best we can do for them. Cant we do something in the downtown that would be a little more beneficial to the people who have paid the tax into this thing? Thats my question, Holmes said. Stricklin said the overall reason why the city is undertaking the project is the city has an urban trail plan that was developed with a significant amount of citywide community input. They also conducted a district mobility study within downtown with targeted community input. And we found a real desire on the part of the community to have trail amenities, to have bicycle and pedestrian circulation throughout the entire district and to have the connections to the trail, Stricklin said. The project is in the medical arts district area that the city is trying to revitalize, she said. City officials believe that the project will assist in redevelopment, particularly in the 12th Avenue area, Stricklin said. Mayor Pat Gerard said she has ridden on the trail a lot and wishes there were more trailheads where riders could park their cars. Personally, I take my life in my hands riding my bicycle to get to the trail, she said, no matter which way I go because the sidewalk system is not there yet. Commissioner Woody Brown said the problem with the trail intersection at West Bay Drive is the flyover. Other communities that really benefit from the trail have ground-level efficient connections to the trail, he said. Looking at the proposal, he said, its a reasonable idea. He also said that he thinks its one of the best uses of the downtown tax district revenue, connecting bicyclists and pedestrians to downtown. King Engineering Associates Inc. of Tampa will conduct the work, which includes presentation of the proposed alternatives at a public workshop to obtain community feedback. Preliminary engineering and property and easement acquisition are scheduled in fiscal year 2012, design in 2013 and construction in fiscal year 2014.Photo by TOM GERMONDLargo officials may add parking areas and make other improvements along the Pinellas Trail near the intersection of West Bay Drive.

The headaches are gone!The wife said about her husband. You see, he had been suffering with waves of shooting pain every day and night for over four weeks. Every couple of minutes the pain would shoot up from the back of his neck all the way to the top and both sides of his head. Of course the first thing he did was go to his doctor who then sent him to a neurologist. After a battery of tests, including an MRI of the brain (which was very normal), he was put on a strong medication that he took for a week. The medication did not stop the headaches, but also made him feel much worse. He decided it was time for a second opinion. The next neurologist also could not find anything abnormal, but recognized what was going on. She told him he needed to find a dentist that treated TMJ and Facial Pain Syndrome. He luckily found a dentist trained in Neuromuscular dentistry. The TMJ is basically the jaw joint. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ) is caused when your jaw (the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and muscles) is not in proper alignment. Signs and Symptoms A popping jaw is just one of the more obvious signs of TMJ. These symptoms may be attributed to a variety of causes making the TMJ diagnosis difficult. Such symptoms include recurring headaches; chronic pain in your face, neck or back; ringing in your ears and even tingling in your fingers. In fact, the symptoms are so diverse, they may be attributed to stress, injury or illness. Patients often seek the help of many specialists, from family physicians to chiropractors. Some are even advised to undergo irreversible surgical procedures, but the pain is never fully resolved. After the first appointment, our suffering patient was free of pain for the first time in over a month. By using the principles and techniques of neuromuscular dentistry, an appliance was fabricated which our patient is now wearing. When a call was made to see how he was doing, his wife joyfully announced the title of this article. Neuromuscular Dentistry We may have the gentle but effective solution you have been looking for. Here at About Smiles Dental, my staff and I have had years of training and experience in advanced neuromuscular dentistry to get your jaw in its proper alignment, relax your muscles and even make your smile look healthier and feel stronger; all done in a gentle, natural and non-invasive manner. Neuromuscular dentistry is a nonsurgical discipline used to diagnose and treat all kinds of trouble caused by malocclusion including TMJ through the gentle repositioning of the jaw. This repositioning can alleviate years of pain and discomfort. When Experience Matters!

Michael Bruno, Volunteer in Policing Coordinator Richard Hageman, and VIP the Rev. Arnold Johnson received the annual 2011 police department awards at the City Commissions meeting March 20. Bruno, who was named 2011 Officer of the Year, initiated the documentation of ongoing investigations of know gang members within the city. He has spent countless hours assisting with the implementation and building of a computer database, which identifies gangs and gang members, wrote Police Chief John Carroll. The database has become widely recognized and used throughout the county. Bruno led an investigation resulting in the arrest of several gang members who were selling narcotics from an apartment in Largo. Due to Brunos proactive efforts, a search warrant was executed on the apartment, resulting in four gang members being arrested. More than two pounds of marijuana, several illegal prescription medications, drug paraphernalia and a .38 revolver were seized. In addition to addressing increasing gang activity, Bruno started a program to deal with the rising population of homeless individuals who flooded the city last year. He assisted placing the individuals in local shelters and enforcing legal action to curb homeless-related crimes. Hageman has taken the departments VIP program to a new level of excellence, Carroll wrote. He was selected to fill the position of volunteer coordinator in May 2009 and at the time there were 23 VIPs. Hageman was named 2011 Civilian of the Year. Throughout the year Hageman attended all city special events to support the events and assist the volunteers. He is always available as a supervisor and coordinates all the after hour Volunteer in Policing Emergency Response call outs, assuring adequate support for patrol officers during the emergencies, Carroll wrote. The VIP program now has 61 volunteers and has provided citizens with 13,519 hours of service in 2011. This is more support than has ever been provided in the history of our program, Carroll wrote. Through Dicks innovative efforts, we now staff the teen room in the Largo Library, provide support for the City Hall mail room and assist with investigative duties, supply room support, records processing and fleet maintenance. Johnson was named VIP of the Year. Johnson has been with the Police Department since 1987. He rides with officers for an eight-hour shift on a weekly basis and provides guidance and support as needed for the employees. Johnson makes himself available for traumatic calls, death notifications, hospital visits and attends officer and family-related funerals and has provided more than 15,000 hours of volunteer service to the community. He is an outstanding individual and through the years has humbly resisted any acknowledgment of the service he provides, Carroll wrote.Police dept. presents awards Commission OKs plans for 342-unit apartment complexLARGO City commissioners approved a development agreement March 20 for the construction of a 342-unit apartment complex on 16.1 acres at the southeast corner of U.S. 19 and Roosevelt Boulevard. The agreement is between KB Crossroads LLC, the current property owner; PSREG Gateway North LLC, the property buyer and developer; and the city of Largo. The agreement allows for a density of up to 24 units per acre but no more than 342 units. It allows for a reduction of parking spaces from 741 to 600. Credits will be applied to the applicants park impact fees because of amenities that will be provided on the property. Another phase of the project, which is on the site of the former Largo Crossroads Mall property, includes plans for a Wal-Mart and a Suncoast Transit Authority station. Another developer is handling those plans, and negotiations over drainage infrastructure are under way. PBA to vote on contractLARGO The Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association has announced that it will conduct a collective bargaining ratification vote of their bargaining unit members April 10, 11 and 12 at the start of each shift, city officials said. The agreement to be voted upon includes the contract articles tentatively agreed upon during the bargaining process plus articles imposed by the City Commission. Those include an increase in compensation for off-duty telephone calls with the state attorney and public defenders offices from the current flat rate of $8 to actual time worked at the overtime rate, with a minimum of one hour paid. In recognition of no pay increases, employees would receive an additional 32 hours personal option time for fiscal year 2012. Other imposed provisions include current language regarding employees at maximum pay receiving a one-time payment based on the annual pay increase granted; the figure would be zero for fiscal year 2012, and restrictions on the purchase of private health insurance coverage that is applicable to all other city employees. If officers and sergeants vote to ratify the contract, it would be in effect for a three-year term. If the ratification vote fails, then the imposed articles and the existing language on all other agreement articles would be in effect until the end of the fiscal year. The city and the PBA would then engage in bargaining this summer for a new agreement to take effect on Oct. 1. The PBA represents 126 officers and sergeants.Development order issued for McDonalds, Chase BankLARGO City officials say a development order was issued March 20 for McDonalds and Chase Bank to Sembler Florida, Inc. The site is 1.21 acres located at 2675 Roosevelt Blvd., between U.S. 19 and Michigan Drive. The development will include a 3,889-squarefoot McDonalds restaurant and a 4,215-square-foot Chase bank, with the existing vacant restaurant to be demolished.

4A Leader, March 29, 2012 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Only 26 to 27 percent of Pinellas Countys estimated 500,000 pets are licensed an untapped resource during another unfavorable budget year. Will Davis, interim director of animal services, told Pinellas County Commissioners during a March 20 work session that his department is 75 percent self-sufficient, bringing in about $3 million of its $4 million budget. He also said if more citizens licensed their pets, as required by county code, more money would be available to provide necessary services, such as dealing with pet overpopulation. This is not a perceived problem, he told commissioners. Its a real problem. Davis said the countys animal shelter, constructed in 1995, was high quality and still effective, although most likely some things about it would change if it were being constructed today. He said good progress was being made in getting animals adopted. Thanks to volunteers, Saturday adoptions are available again. Were doing everything we can to get these animals out (of the shelter), he said, adding, We want them to be in good homes. About 30 percent of the pets brought to the countys shelter are adopted. Their owners reclaim another 10 percent. Were very focused on building a volunteer force, Davis said. Animal services have one employee dedicated to working with and recruiting more volunteers something Davis said was making a difference. Still, 51 percent of animals taken into the shelter are euthanized, which is better than the national average of 60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats put down each year. Davis points to irresponsible pet owners as contributors to the problem coupled with a lack of funding to provide spay and neutering services for low-income residents. The program was eliminated in the past due to budgetary issues, but Davis reinstated the service by reprioritizing, allowing staff to spay and neuter animals at the shelter for those who meet financial guidelines. More education on responsible pet ownership is needed, he said, including the importance of spaying, neutering and keeping animals off the streets. Irresponsible pet ownership is the beginning of the problem, he said, referring to a flow chart that details the issues. Were it not for folks letting pets run at large and breed indiscriminately all through the year Davis talked about the ongoing issue of feral cats, which he said was different from the problem of cats being allowed by their owners to roam free. Back in 2009, Barbara Snow, former director of the Humane Society, and Dr. DeWayne Taylor, former director of county animal services, put together a work group to try to find a solution to the feral cat problem. Davis said the group came up with some good initiatives, which county commissioners acknowledged, but it was a private group leading the effort and nothing really happened. Dr. Caroline Thomas, animal services director of veterinary services, reviewed efforts made to trap, neuter and release feral cats, a program advocated by the work group. She said about 60 percent of feral cats that come into the shelter are euthanized because they cant be adopted out. She said kittens could be transformed from feral to companion cats, but not adults that grew up in the wild and are un-socialized. Of the 775 kittens placed in foster care in 2011, 40 to 50 percent were feral. In addition, county law requires that cats be confined or under their owners control at all times. She said people who feed and care for feral cats are breaking the law. Three feeding citations have been issued, but only after multiple contacts trying to educate those in violation. Trap, neuter and release programs also dont really do anything for the animals welfare and quality of life. We dont want feral cats, we want companions inside cats, she said. Staff estimated there are about 150,000 to 200,000 feral cats living in Pinellas. There are way more cats than resources, Thomas said. In addition, feral cats are predators. Feeding them can attract wildlife, such as coyotes. Plus theres the issue of public health and safety due to transmittable diseases that may be contained in cat feces. One of these diseases is the leading cause of blindness in children, she said. To reduce the feral cat population effectively, 80 to 90 percent would have to be spayed or neutered, which could be between 120,000 and 180,000 cats. In addition, it would take a constant effort to keep the population under control. And it doesnt address irresponsible pet ownership, Thomas said. Dave Kandz, conservation chair for the St. Petersburg Audubon Society, and several wildlife biologists told commissioners they are opposed to trap, neuter and release programs for feral cats, primarily because it continues to allow non-native predators into the natural ecosystem. Wildlife biologist Jean Murphy said the wild is not a suitable habitat for domestic cats, which should be kept indoors as companions. John Hood, president of the Clearwater Audubon Society, said he was in support of a program of trap, neuter and adopt for feral cats, but not the release of predators into the environment. Dr. Don Morgan, a long-time veterinarian with Bluffs Animal Hospital in Belleair Bluffs and member of several veterinarian professional organizations, said state law prohibits the release of nonindigenous animals into the wild. Trapping and euthanizing is not popular, he said, adding that it was something that must be done due to disease problems and the fact that feral cats are not socialized. Morgan advocates a low-cost, high-volume voluntary spay and neuter program to prevent pet overpopulation. Thomas talked about the pros and cons of a mandatory spay and neuter program, as opposed to leaving it voluntary as it is today. Our shelter couldnt be more on board with voluntary spay and neuter, she said. Concerns about a mandatory program include having people skip veterinary care because their animals are not spayed or neutered. Also, more low-income residents might choose to surrender their pets if they cant afford the surgery. Plus, animal services dont have the budget for aggressive enforcement of a mandatory program. Instead, Thomas suggested looking for ways to encourage more residents to spay and neuter. One way could be to reduce fees for residents who reclaim animals brought into the shelter that have been spayed or neutered. Byron Elder, secretary of the Clearwater Kennel Club, spoke against a mandatory spay and neuter program, saying that it would discriminate against breeders of purebred animals. Overpopulation is not due to (local) breeders, he said. A lot (of animals) are imported in (to the county). Davis said he recently attended a meeting of several private organizations that provide animal services in Pinellas. He said the consensus was that the best way to battle the pet overpopulation problem is to provide affordable, low-cost and accessible spay and neutering services. But, spaying and neutering of animals takes money. Davis said to do more would take help from everybody private organizations, veterinarians not just the countys shelter. One way to increase funding for animal services is by getting more residents to license their pets, which Davis said was an untapped resource that could help supplement animal services budget. An animal license is $20 a year and residents must show proof of current rabies vaccination. Commissioners asked staff to continue working with private organizations, such as SPCA and the Humane Society, to find the most affordable and effective methods of dealing with the countys animal problems. They also asked staff to suggest revisions to the fee schedule to add incentives for spaying and neutering. Its a good place to start, said Commissioner Nancy Bostock.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK On March 22, after 14 years as mayor, Bill Mischler handed over the gavel of the Pinellas Park City Council to someone new. In the wake of four decades of leadership first as a city advisory board member, then a councilman and finally as mayor Pinellas Park has changed. Mischler is quick to deflect credit for the citys growth and improvements, pointing instead to the work of the citys employees. However, dozens of local leaders who came to honor Mischler at a sendoff tribute during Country in the Park March 17 said differently, claiming that Mischlers role as a public servant to Pinellas Park as well as to the entire county helped shape the community for the better. Hes kind of like the Ronald Reagan of Pinellas Park, said fellow council member Rick Butler. Hes an icon. Anybody that spends that much time on city issues its unbelievable. I cant come close to what hes done. Mischlers convictions did not let him treat his role as mayor, which currently pays an annual salary of less than $19,000, as a part-time job. His love and advocacy of Pinellas Park is not part time, nor his commitment to its people. One of the greatest things that I could say about Bill Mischler is that any time you get with him, your heart is going to be expanded, and your heart is going to see the community like youve never seen it before, said Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce President Jon Farris. But Mischler is the first to admit that he has a problem saying no. Thats part of the reason why hes stepping back. I need a break, folks, he told the crowd at Country in the Park, his voice taking on a pleading tone. I just need a break, because I try to accommodate everybody all the time. Mischler said he doesnt intend to duck out of the community entirely. He might even consider running for a council position again. But that is to be determined, at a future date, he said. The citys not getting rid of me. I still will be an advocate for the citizens. The city has come a long way, and not just due to me, its due to people working together. I want to see it continue to go in that direction.Humble beginningsPinellas Park has carried a reputation blemishes from the past, Mischler says that gave it nicknames like Puddle Park, Pineapple Junction and Pity Park. I try to erase those images, make it something were proud of, Mischler said. In that effort, hes perpetuated a different title, pointing out at every ribbon-cutting, groundbreaking, celebration and ceremony he attends that, Its another great day in the capitol city of Tampa Bay, Pinellas Park. Behind the well-rehearsed lines and jokes, Mischler claims to be an introvert at heart. Former Pinellas Park Mayor Mel Dinsmore, who called Mischler his son, remembers when Mischler started on the citys planning and zoning board, back in 1971. We would have lunch and breakfast at the 57th Street drug store. Bill was so bashful, he would never come up and say hello, Dinsmore said, Now hes an extrovert and wont quit talking. Mischler agreed with Dinsmores assessment. When I first got on planning and zoning, all I would say is yea or nay. I would not get involved in any discussion, because I was so shy, he said. He pulled out a black-and-white wedding photo. I was a nerd, he said, pointing to the bespectacled, younger version of himself. Buddy Holly, thats what I look like. Mischler knew his would-be-wife Joan when he was a kindergartner, back when their families lived across the street from one another and shared a telephone party line in East Brunswick, N.J. Joans family moved to Florida during their sophomore year of high school. Bill and his father Bills mother died when he was 15 moved to Florida two years later. Joan and Bill began dating after that. The Mischlers, who now have one daughter and two grandchildren, have lived in Pinellas Park since 1967. Before dabbling in city government, Bill began a 32-year career with Jim Walter Computer Services in Tampa. But gradually, through exposure in regular meetings that helped him work past his shyness, he got pulled into the workings of Pinellas Park government. He served as chair of the planning and zoning board for five years. I got more and more involved, and decided that Id swing at running for city council in 1980, he said. He won that year, and then won the next four elections for his seat. In 1998, he tried his hand at a run for mayor with success. He has been largely unchallenged in subsequent elections.The government and businessOf the many improvements for which Mischler is credited, mending the relationship between the city government and the business community is one of the most mentioned. Mischler himself often says that a deep distrust once divided the public and private sectors and kept new businesses away from Pinellas Park. When he took office, Mischler sought to reverse that trend. He worked to forge a better relationship with the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce and encouraged business-friendly policies. He started a new program where city officials, including the mayor, spend a whole day once a month visiting several businesses within city limits. Chamber leaders have praised the program as a successful way to not only introduce businesses to their city government, but for the community as a whole to learn about the many hidden small businesses that have chosen Pinellas Park as their home. These days, Pinellas Park officials are very often complimented for the ease with which new business owners navigate the usually complex process of opening shop. On behalf of the chamber March 17, Farris presented Mischler with a commemorative replica of a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightening II fighter and thanked Mischler for his part in bringing a Lockheed Martin manufacturing plant to Pinellas Park. The plant recently opened a 57,000-square-foot expansion to produce the fighter aircraft. Residents also are starting to see the city in a more positive light, Mischler said. Thirty years ago, people were moving from Pinellas Park to surrounding communities. Now theyre moving from surrounding communities to Pinellas Park, he said. I feel proud.Helping people Mischler constantly emphasizes his desire to treat the residents he serves as his equals. Thats why, since hes been retired from his full-time job several years ago, hes held daily office hours at the McDonalds in the Walmart on U.S. 19, rather than his office at City Hall. I dont want to sit there and feel like Im better than the other person, he said, explaining that hes asked state representatives, county commissioners and the former sheriff to meet him at the McDonalds. Mischler said he probably would continue getting his morning coffee at the fast food joint, even after hanging up the mayoral title. Hell be in good company, particularly that of four retired gentlemen who banter and tease Mischler in between complimenting him for his service as mayor. (We come) just to see the mayor, Frank Hillyard said. He always has a good story. I think I could say hes a good Christian man,Pinellas Park mayor steps down after 41 years of service to city John Nugent Jr. added. He has a big heart, a very giving person. I think were all sorry to see him leave (office), said 91-year-old Ed Seeds. He is very good at taking care of people, commented Marion Oyster. He looks out for the little guy. Oyster would know. Mischler used to check up on his 96-year-old neighbor at her house every day, he said. In fact, Mischler made Rosa a local celebrity, asking city officials to wish her a good night after every city council meeting. He still visits her at the assisted living facility, where he convinced her to move after she fell in her bathroom last July. She has nobody, Mischler said. I always looked at life as, what if I were in this position? Even U.S. Congressman Bill Young, a statesman of 50-plus years and a former resident of Pinellas Park, extolled Mischlers humanity and work ethic. When a constituent of mine from Pinellas Park calls me with a problem, the first thing I do is call Bill Mischler, he said. And then usually when I go by the site, (I) find that he is there with a shovel or whatever it is taking to fix the issue. The creation of People Helping People of Pinellas Park is an extension of that hands-on philosophy played out in the private sector. The nonprofit, which Mischler helped found, organizes groups of volunteers to help neighbors like Rosa with house and yard projects they couldnt handle financially or physically on their own.The legacy of a leaderMany of the local leaders gathered at Country in the Park named Mischler their mentor and said he was a great example to the entire county. I think part of the reason that this is a wonderful community is the kind of leadership that men like Bill Mischler and Bill Young have provided for this community throughout the years, state Sen. Jack Latvala said. Only a few politicians ever rise to the level of public servants, he said. He did the sort of things that make that community better and didnt worry about who got the credit, state Rep. Jim Frishe said. Pinellas County elected officials commended him for his longtime service on the county Metropolitan Planning Organization. Safety Harbor Mayor Andy Steingold said he learned a lot from Mischler while sitting with him on the board, and keeps in mind Mischlers constant insistence: No more studies; just build the road, please! He has always acted with the best intentions ... and planned for the future, Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel agreed. R.B. Johnson, himself a mayor of Indian Rocks Beach for the last dozen years, said he hoped he could live up to the standard Mischler set. Mischlers reputation has prompted others to encourage him to run for a higher office than mayor. But Mischler said he has never had the desire, primarily because he would rather avoid declaring a political party that would tell him how to vote. My sole interest is the city of Pinellas Park, he said. Mischler will remain on the board of Northside Hospital and he was recently appointed to the board of Vincent House. But aside from those responsibilities, he said hes looking forward to having his schedule free of meetings and obligations. Hed like to travel more, to New England and likely to Alaska again, spend time with his wife and smell the roses. Were not getting younger, and none of us have an assurance of tomorrow. So before something does happen, I felt that I wanted to do some things that I wanted to do in life, he said. His advice to the new mayor was simple: stay responsive to the people. Always return calls, always get back to them. Its very important, he said. Its a seven-day operation, being the mayor. Sandra Bradbury, daughter of another former mayor, Cecil Bradbury, took over leadership of the Pinellas Park City Council on March 22. You have worked very hard for this city. I have big shoes to fill between you and Dad, she told Mischler at his send-off. But I also know that I have two people to rely on, to call. Nonetheless, Mischlers retirement, at the end of his 41-year career with the city, will leave a hole not quickly filled, especially to those who remain on the council. Im gonna miss him. Im going to miss my Uncle Bill, Butler said. I hope he doesnt get stuck in Alaska. Ill have to go get him. And I look funny in snowshoes.Photo by JULIANA A.

And there have been a lot of good changes that have been made that have made a huge difference, she said. She said the golf course is about $100,000 financially ahead of where it was at the same time last year from the start of the fiscal year, Oct. 1. The commissions decided to entertain management proposals after months of city officials scrutinizing the golf courses operations, which have received large city subsidies in recent years. The highest net loss for any normal year of operation was in fiscal year 2010, $307,000. From fiscal year 1990 to fiscal year 2010, net losses were reported in every year except fiscal year 1999. The Largo Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 62 executive course located on 46 acres on Vonn Road. The clubhouse includes a pro shop, which offers golf attire and equipment and a snack area operated by a private concessionaire. The course was redesigned in 2006-2007, with new greens and tees, turf, new irrigation system, drainage improvements and an additional restroom.He (Bill Mischler) is very good at taking care of people. He looks out for the little guy.Marion Oyster

Recognizing a marked increase in the display of drug paraphernalia and that establishments are selling these products with reasonable knowledge of their use for illicit drug use without adhering to age restrictions set forth in a county ordinance and state law, the Largo Police Department and members of the Pinellas County Justice and Consumer Services conducted reviews of more than 25 convenience and food stores in the city of Largo from March 12 through March 20, police said. Eleven of the 25 locations were in violation of the ordinance or state law. In each of the cases where establishments were charged with violating the ordinance, paraphernalia was openly displayed, often on the sales counter, and there was no age limitation at the store. In most locations, the efforts also noted sales of incense, potpourri and other products which have been linked to emerging concerns of synthetic substance abuse in both youth and adults. These items pose a significant public health concern, and further action is being explored to address their sale within Pinellas County, a county news release said. Most prevalent, the incense products origins can be traced to K2 or Spice. They have been chemically modified from the original products to avoid being classified as a controlled substance by the DEA. These products are not tested by the FDA nor do they have their compositions listed on their packaging. Often, the names of these products are street names or slang terms for marijuana, strains of marijuana or names associated with the effects of being high from marijuana giving rise to their identification as fake weed, the release said. The county ordinance prohibits the display of drug paraphernalia and advertising in stores where anyone under the age of 18 can openly observe the items and where retailers reasonably know the use of their products are for illicit drug purposes. State law prohibits any establishment from selling, delivering, or possessing with intent to deliver drug paraphernalia. Listed below are the stores, which were cited along with those individuals whom were arrested for violations. Future arrests may occur. Stores that were cited are: Seven Days Food Store, 2926 Roosevelt Blvd.; BP Gas Station, 5545 Ulmerton Road; Qwik Mart, 7149 Ulmerton Road; B&N Food Mart, 13355-A Belcher Road; Fairway Discount Foods, 1090 Belcher Road; Super Am, 1595 Seminole Blvd.; Marathon Gas Station, 1199 Missouri Ave.; BP Gas Station, 11301 Ulmerton Road; Sonnys Convenience, 1400 Seminole Blvd.; BP Gas Station, 790 East Bay Drive, and Express Food Mart, 1021 Highland Ave. Arrested were: Mohab Farag, 28, sale of paraphernalia; Arun Raj, 27, sale of paraphernalia and intent to sell counterfeit drug; Sami Abraham, 26, sale of paraphernalia; Zyad Quisini, 43, sale of paraphernalia; Carol Taber, 52, sale of paraphernalia, and Yu Huang, 46, sale of paraphernalia.Agencies make arrests, cite convenience storesMan arrested for sexual batteryCLEARWATER Pinellas County sheriffs detectives arrested a Clearwater man March 21 in connection with allegations of sexual battery on a child less than 12 years old. According to the sheriffs report, the unnamed female victim was age 9 at the time of the crime. She is now 14. Detectives say that Axmed G. Castillo, 44, admitted to the crime, which occurred at a private residence in Clearwater. They also say that Castillo and the victim were known to each other and the victim was in his care at the time the crime was committed. During the course of a separate investigation, involving a lewd and lascivious molestation on a minor, detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit learned that the suspect in that case had been arrested in 2008 by Clearwater Police Department for sexual performance by a child. Images of child pornography were found on that suspects computer. Upon reviewing the images in the Clearwater case, detectives were able to identify a previously unidentified victim. Through interviews with the victim and her mother, they determined that the 14-year-old girl had been sexually battered and photographed by Castillo when she was age 9. Detectives say Castillo has not at this time been linked to the lewd and lascivious battery case. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail on bond of $250,000. The investigation continues.Bicyclist dies after crash with vanST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County sheriffs deputies say that a bicyclist who rode into the path of a van March 18 has died. Roger L. Hiers, 54, of Gibsonton was pronounced dead at Bayfront Medical Center on Thursday, March 22. Deputies responded to a crash at about 11:25 p.m. Sunday, March 18, at Park Street, just south of Burning Tree in Seminole. According to deputies, the bicyclist and the driver of a 2001 Dodge van, John L. Collins, 52, of St. Petersburg were headed northbound on Park Street, when the bicyclist rode into the path of the van. Hiers was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of head injuries, characterized as life-threatening. Collins was not injured in the crash.

There were no signs of impairment on the part of the vehicle driver. The medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of Hiers death.FHP cracks down on aggressive drivingMIAMI Cutting off a big truck could cost you a fine, if you survive. The Florida Highway Patrol announced at a March 21 news conference in Miami the second phase of Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks. The campaign aims to reduce commercial motor vehicle-related crashes, injuries and fatalities by combining outreach and education with targeted enforcement activities to raise awareness among car and truck drivers about safe driving behaviors, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. We are pleased to partner with the Florida Trucking Association on this safety campaign. From March 30 through April 4, troopers statewide will be on the lookout for car and truck drivers who commit violations attributed to aggressive driving such as: following too closely, unsafe lane change and speeding. In addition to targeted enforcement, the campaign will use billboard and radio messaging to increase awareness among car and truck drivers of safe driving behaviors around one another and of the heightened risk of receiving a ticket for a violation. FHP and the Florida Trucking Association also will conduct activities at schools and community centers around the state to educate drivers on how to share the road safely with trucks. FTA President and CEO, Mary Lou Rajchel, said, Safety on Floridas roadways is a cooperative effort by cars and trucks alike. As an industry, safety is at the top of our minds it matters above all else. We are pleased with the opportunity to take our No Zone message about safe driving behaviors around big rigs on the road with the Florida Highway Patrol. Pairing the big trucks equal big blind spots message with the opportunity to see what our drivers see through community education is a unique approach that we believe will promote responsible driving for everyone.High-speed chase ends in arrestPINELLAS PARK A St. Petersburg man was arrested after reportedly leading Florida Highway Patrol troopers on a high-speed chase through Pinellas Park, sideswiping two vehicles along 49th Street March 19. At 10:12 a.m. that morning, a trooper working on McMullen Booth Road clocked a blue 2012 Ford Fusion traveling at 69 mph in a 55 mph speed zone. The driver, later identified as James Earl Williams, 38, ignored signals to stop and instead fled from the trooper, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph, the agency reported. At 49th Street and 126th Avenue, the Fusion struck an E250 Ford van, driven by Eddie Sanchez, 53, of St. Petersburg. He also hit a 2005 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Phousa Xaysongkham, 52, of Pinellas Park, at the intersection of Park Boulevard. He finally turned off of 49th Street at 73rd Avenue and stopped, ending the pursuit at 10:23 a.m., troopers reported. Williams was arrested and booked into Pinellas County Jail. He was charged with habitually driving on a suspended driver license, fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer and leaving the scene of the two traffic crashes. Troopers also cited him with speeding and illegal window tint. Neither of the drivers in the crashes was injured, troopers said. The crashes caused about $500 worth in damage to both vehicles, as well as $4,000 damage to Williams vehicle.Arson suspected in marina fireMADEIRA BEACH Pinellas County sheriffs detectives are continuing an arson investigation following an early morning fire March 21 that totaled one boat and damaged three others in a marina. Witnesses told detectives a white pickup truck was seen leaving the marina parking lot just after the fire started. Firefighters from Madeira Beach, Seminole and Treasure Island responded to a boat fire at about 6 a.m. in the marina next to Latitudes Restaurant at 13205 Gulf Blvd. By 8 a.m. the smoldering fiberglass and wood from the four boats was under control. There were no injuries. The fire, which investigators are describing as suspicious, started in a 38-foot 1991 Mediterranean fiberglass boat, valued at between $85,000 and $100,000. It was totaled. The remains sank to the bottom of the marina. Two other boats on each side were heavily damaged and another boat two slips away received cosmetic damage. The boat was scheduled to be hauled out of the water as part of the investigation. Total damages were estimated at $500,000. Damage to the dock was estimated at $35,000. Once fiberglass starts burning, its hard to put out, said Madeira Beach Fire Chief Derryl ONeal. ONeal said Madeira Beach Fire Department Engine 25 was the first on the scene and formed an attack line using foam. Its the best thing to use to put out a fire involving fiberglass, he said. Im not sure how much they used but I know Im going to be ordering more tomorrow. In addition to the four boats, there was minor damage to the dock area.

One clears the way for a long-awaited merger between the Pinellas Planning Council and the countys Metropolitan Planning Organization. Passage of the bill allows amendments to a special act that established the PPC. Officials began talking in early 2010 about combining the functions of the PPC and MPO into a single, independent entity responsible for both land use and transportation planning, according to a PPC News publication from that year. A committee, which included three representatives each from the PPC, MPO and Board of Pinellas County Commissioners, convened in April 2010 to take on the issue of merging transportation and future land use planning at the countywide level. The committee concluded a single board, instead of two, could do the job. The single 13-member board would still include representation of elected officials from throughout the county, as well as a member from the Pinellas Suncoast Transportation Authority. According to language in the bill, the county has become a high transportation planning priority. Land use patterns are a critical factor in determining multimodal transportation, particularly transit, is functional and effective, the bill says, adding, Transportation and land use planning do not exist independently but have a relationship in which each influences the other. Provisions are made for membership requirements, election of officers, meetings, quorums and authority, as well as a budget and annual independent audit. The bill also allows the county to repeal its current countywide plan and create a new one that is broadly defined and policy-based. There are processes for amendments, standards and procedures and a timetable for review after a new countywide plan in adopted. Besides the governors signature, changes cant happen without approval from the Florida Department of Transportation and the governor of a reapportionment plan from the MPO allowing it to change its membership from 11 to 13 members.PSTA and transportationAnother bill involving the future of transportation in Pinellas made it through the Legislature this year. The bill allows PSTA to look for alternative ways to fund its operations besides collection of property tax. Instead, PSTA can choose to use a specified discretionary surtax.Local bills fare well in Legislative session in 2012The bill, referred to as a tax swap, would prohibit PSTA from collecting property taxes for its service if it takes sales tax money. Officials have said for some time that property taxes cant pay for transit in Pinellas. Getting a green light to explore other funding alternatives is good news for PSTA officials. PSTA thanks and supports the members of our legislative delegation for their hard work and dedication to supporting improved transportation in Pinellas County and the Tampa Bay area, said CEO Brad Miller. We are optimistic that the legislatures passage of the tax swap measure will allow PSTA to change its primary funding source and significantly improve transit service in our community. The Legislature also passed a bill that intends to help improve regional transit connectivity and put into place operational efficiencies and service enhancements per the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authoritys Regional Transportation Plan. To that end, the bill requires a review of PSTA and the Hillsborough Regional Transit Authority. The two organizations are required to begin holding joint meetings within 30 days after July 1. The bill mandates that the review include governance, funding, facilities ownership and management, and consideration of financial obligations and resources. A report must be submitted to the President of the state Senate by Feb. 1. The report must include proposed legislation to implement specific recommendations concerning the reorganization of each agency, a merger of the two agencies or consolidation of functions within PSTA and HART. PSTA officials arent as optimistic about this bill. PSTA will continue to partner with other transit agencies in the Tampa Bay region to find ways to reduce costs and boost service, Miller said. Although we have concerns over the cost of the measure, we will comply with the mandate with high hopes for success.Officials have said for some time that property taxes cant pay for transit in Pinellas. Getting a green light to explore other funding alternatives is good news for PSTA officials.

These precinct lines require approval by the Board of County Commissioners.

PETERSBURG For the third month in a row, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority has set ridership records. According to a press release, Tampa Bay area residents boarded PSTA buses in record setting number in February. More than 1,135,000 rides were taken, which is a 10.4 percent increase over February 2011. This is an exciting trend that has our staff preparing for what could be the single highest ridership month in the agencys history, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller.With tourism, the economy and gas prices all on the rise, theres a good chance that March ridership will be the highest monthly mark ever. March has traditionally been the agencys highest ridership month and holds the all-time ridership record at just over 1.168 million, which was set in March 2011. Since December, PSTA ridership is averaging a 7.5 percent increase over the same period last year an encouraging sign of the publics willingness to use mass transit in Pinellas County. With all of our visitors in town and the kids being out of school for spring break, PSTA is great way to get to our award winning beaches while not having to deal with parking hassles and fees, said PSTA Spokesperson Bob Lasher. In Clearwater, beach goers can park free in the municipal parking garage at 640 Pierce St. and then walk next door to PSTAs Park Street Terminal where they can catch the Suncoast Beach To learn how to plan a trip and ride PSTA you can visit the agency website at www.PSTA.net or call the PSTA InfoLine at 540-1900.Deadline to pay property tax is March 31CLEARWATER Tax Collector Diane Nelson would like to remind Pinellas County property owners of the March 31 deadline for 2011 property tax payments.

Artists & Craftsmen Complimentary Wine Bar Fantastic Food & Baked Goods032912 By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE From an energy standpoint, Florida is in a bad place. More than $17 billion goes out of the state each year to pay for fossil fuels to fire up electric plants around Florida and that figure is likely to continue upward. More importantly, energy experts say, its money that could be spent more effectively within a struggling economy. Speaking at an energy forum March 22 at the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, four experts tossed around different ideas about the states energy future and possible solutions. They included Stephen Smith, executive director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy; Robert Scheffel Wright, a Tallahassee attorney who specializes in utilities and energy law; Joseph Treshler, vice president of Covanta Energy; and Chuck Warrington, managing director and executive officer of Clearwater Gas System. Most agreed the states Public Service Commission needs to be retooled to meet the needs of state residents and from there develop a workable renewable energy plan for the state. Legislation has to change to get changes in the PSC, said Treshler. Theres no incentive on utilities to do anything but maintain what they do now. The business model has to change. He said there was a proposal for a renewable energy target in the state, or an integrated resource plan using different sustainable methods, but it did not pass this year in the Florida Legislature. Thirty states have established these policies but for philosophical reasons Florida has not, said Treshler. We need a regulatory body that regulates and provides oversight, said Smith. We need to think in terms of clean resources. We need wiggle room in how decisions are made because too many times theyre made with the power companies in mind. Most energy experts consider a renewable energy target, which would establish energy goals for the state, as the first step encouraging growth of renewable energy resources. It would allow new energy investment to come into the state, said Smith. Florida currently has a captured Public Service Commission because it is largely controlled by the utilities. We need the political leadership to look out for the long term interests of the citizens of the state. Smith said the major utilities have no interest in investing in renewable energy because their stockholders like to see more visibleExperts say state faces critical energy juncturegrowth signs, such as brick and mortar construction. Florida is in a precarious situation, Smith said. But with renewable energy costs coming down, the time is right for sustainable methods. Wright said the state needs to create incentives for people to come in and invest in the state. He mentioned the option of a blind elections auction in which companies would submit bids for power service and the lowest bidder would get the contract. Its not rocket science, Wright said. You bid down per kilowatt hour. Thats how it ought to work. Warrington addressed the advantages of natural gas as an option to electricity for a number of different applications. There are more natural gas reserves in this country than Saudi Arabia has oil, he said. The game changer in the U.S. was the amount of gas generation following the shale discoveries. Warrington noted that Publix Supermarkets has embarked on a program to install gas power generators for emergency use in each of its stores and Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater recently installed a gas generator for its regular daytime power needs. Gas is the one fossil fuel going down in price, he said. Gas is plentiful and cost effective. Warrington said natural gas costs equivalent to $2.19 per gallon of gasoline. Smith pointed to a biomass power plant in Gainesville that will depend on about 50 percent of its needs from fossil fuels, as a first step. Other options would include solar and wind power, as well as methane hydrates, a natural gas alternative readily available in the Gulf of Mexico.

We are currently in a La Nia weather pattern, which usually means drier-than-average conditions are more likely across the southern tier of the United States. Unfortunately, this suggests the drought is likely to continue and we may not see good rains until May. Here are some things you can do to help your plants cope. Dont mow. Turf already under drought-stress will be even more stressed if mowed. The leaves of the grass support the root system. The shorter the grass is mowed, the shorter the root system. If you must mow, use the highest setting and make sure the blades are very sharp. A clean cut will cause less loss of water than a ragged cut. Dont fertilize. Fertilizing increases plants need for water. It also promotes new growth, which is tender and cannot withstand drought.Do water deeply. Apply onehalf to three-quarters of an inch of water to the landscape. This amount of water will penetrate 8-12 inches into the soil. When plants are watered deeply they develop a deep root system that is better able to withstand drought. Look for signs of wilt before watering again. Do use mulch. Mulch helps to prevent water loss from the soil, decreases runoff, and moderates the soil temperature, thus keeping the ground cooler. Using organic mulch (such as pine bark or oak leaves) will improve the waterand nutrient-holding capacity of the soil and will even add nutrients to the soil as it breaks down. Keep mulch away from the trunks of plants and dont cover the root ball with mulch. With large particle mulch, like pine bark, use enough to have about 3 inches deep after settling. Mulches that form a mat and dont allow water to percolate through as easily, such as oak leaves, should be put down about 1 inch thick. Remove weeds. Weeds compete with plants for water and nutrients. Hand pull weeds if possible. Herbicides dont work as well when plants are under drought stress and are not actively growing. Mulching is a great way to suppress weeds and also makes it easier to pull out the weeds that do grow. Use plants that can tolerate our wet to dry weather extremes. Replace plants that require lots of water with those that are drought tolerant. Try using native plants that have evolved with Floridas weather extremes. Many are drought and flood tolerant. If water use becomes so restricted that landscape plant survival is in question, here are some drastic measures that can be done to save plants: Water only when plants start to wilt. Use mulch. Prune plants severely to reduce leaf area. Remove weak plants. Thin dense beds of plants to reduce competition among plants; pull out weeds. For Bahia grass lawns, stop watering and allow the grass to go dormant. It will turn brown, but will recover well once the rains resume.For more information about plants, contact your local University of Florida Extension. Our Lawn and Garden Help Desk is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo, and is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We also have a Lawn and Garden Help Line, which can be contacted at 727-582-2110 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. You also can visit our websites at www.AskExtension .org or www.PinellasCountyEx tension.org for more information. Jane Morse is a University of Florida/IFAS Pinellas County Extension Agent.On Feb. 28, 2009, four friends, who were stronger and healthier than most of us, left Clearwater Pass on their 21-foot boat for a day of fishing. Only one returned after the U.S. Coast Guard, following an exhaustive search that lasted almost 48 hours, rescued him. As with many tragic accidents, this one could almost certainly have been avoided by simply being aware of inherent dangers in boating. The following are some basic things boaters need to be aware of to operate safely. 1. PAY ATTENTION TO THE WEATHER. As serious as bad weather can be on land, it will usually be more dangerous if you are on the water. High winds, lightning, and heavy seas, among many other things can develop rapidly and threaten your life and those of all on board a boat. You need to not only respect the sea, but also respect the weather. Check your marine weather radio and local newscasts every time before you take your boat out. 2. IF YOU GO OFF-SHORE, GET AN EPIRB. An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) may save your life. They are available online and at most local boating equipment stores. They can range in cost from about $350 to well over $1,000. Depending on how much you wish to spend, but no matter what the cost, off-shore boaters cant afford to be without one. They can literally mean the difference between life and death on the sea. Some EPIRBs activate automatically and can provide the Coast Guard with an almost instantaneous readout of your exact location. In the best of conditions, people in the water can be difficult for rescuers to see, and in heavy seas they can be almost impossible to locate, unless you have an EPIRB. 3. FILE A FLOAT PLAN! This is a lot simpler than it sounds and basically is letting someone you know what your plans are and how to contact you. You can download and print out the U.S. Coast Guard approved Float Plan at www.floatplancentral.org. You can complete all of the basic information on the form before you print it, and then simply write in the information on your individual boating trips. In addition, the download contains a boating emergency guide. 4. LEARN BASIC BOATING AND SAFETY SKILLS. While experienced and trained boaters can and do make mistakes, I am astonished at the incompetence of many people at the helm of a boat. Unless you have the knowledge and skill to handle a boat and any of the hundreds of things that can go wrong, it can and often does lead to unnecessary property damage, injury and often the loss of life. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla in St. Petersburg offers a FREE (OK you have to pay for the text book!) 12 week Boating Skills and Seamanship course on Tuesday nights from 7 to 9. If you are a new boater, or an experienced one that would like a refresher course, or just want to learn about boating there can be few better ways to spend two hours a week. For more information or to register for the free course please visit the following website: www.uscgboating.org/ safety/boating_safety_courses_ .aspx Just do it. It may save your life and those of your family and friends. Enough said.Loren D.

Visit www.pinellascoun ty.org/park.This past weeks kingfish bite was absolutely spectacular at times; kingfish averaging 8 to 15 pounds have been schooled up over hard bottom inside of a mile from shore. Anchoring and chumming with live pilchards or slow trolling with the same baits has been the key to success. When anchor fishing deploying a quality chum block will attract the kingfish and Spanish mackerel from great distances, while live bait chumming will often excite any fish in the area into a feeding frenzy. Wire stinger rigs with a short 3to 4-inch trailer hook are perfect for the larger pilchards. However if youre specifically targeting the larger fish you may want to extend that stinger to upwards of 6 inches in order to accommodate big baits such as live mullet, Spanish mackerel, shad or ladyfish. Cobia are around and can often show up while chumming kingfish. Also check near-shore structures artificial reefs channel markers and jetties. Although cobia are not a fish that you can count on every trip, spring time is often the most consistent, so it pays to have a rod always ready with a live bait rig consisting of a stout hook, 40 pound leader and cork pegged about 3 feet up the line. A chummed up cobia will rarely refuse any live offering. Inshore, trout and redfish have both been cooperating well on these new moon tides. Target deep-water flats directly adjacent to the extreme shallows on the low incoming tide, for a chance at both species. Spoil islands, no-motor zone flats and just about anywhere else that you can find clean, good moving water are potential hot-spots. Casting top-water lures first thing in the morning will help you locate active fish. Flats fish are much more active now than a few weeks ago, making them much more likely to respond to the loud commotion put out by the top-water plug. And as the tide peaks look for the redfish to really take to the mangroves. Spring high tides bring much more water than we had all winter and the redfish are definitely pushing way back under the mangroves at high tides as they search out crabs. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Rapp Brewing Company to openPINELLAS PARK After three decades in the IT industry, award-winning home brewer Greg Rapp has retired and is following his passion by opening Rapp Brewing Company in the spring of 2012. Rapp Brewing Company, a new craft brewery in the heart of Pinellas County, joins a boom of other small breweries that have opened in the region. Rapp, 53, has served his homebrewed creations to friends and colleagues for the past eight years. He founded the local homebrew club Pinellas Urban Brewers Guild a couple of years ago, where he honed his craft with the help of fellow members. Ive learned a lot from that group, he said in a press release. They are some very talented people. Rapp recently signed the lease on a 3,200-square-foot space off Bryan Dairy Road, just a couple of blocks west of 66th Street. His 50gallon brewing system is in place, and the licensing and permitting are nearly done. What were going to do is actually brew a large variety of beer instead one or two flagship beers, Rapp said. We will have 20 taps in the tasting room. Eventually, Rapp hopes to expand the tasting room and is currently generating funds for the project through Kickstarter.Hyatt Regency earns awardsCLEARWATER At the recent Hyatt 2011 Annual Awards, Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa, the newest luxury beach resort on Floridas Gulf Coast, received an impressive six nominations and took home two top awards, including Director of Catering and Convention Services of the Year and Controller of the Year.

Torres jtorres@tbnweekly.com General Editorial editorial@tbnweekly.comCirculation: L. Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563The tragic killing of Trayvon Martin is much more than a heartbreaking story about a vacationing teenager, who, while walking to a convenience store to buy his brother some candy, was shot dead by an overenthusiastic neighborhood watch leader. The shooting in Sanford is tearing at the social fabric of Florida. For it reminds us that deep-seated racism can rise in a flash when someone in authority thinks someone who looks different, looks suspicious. And its a reminder of how easy Florida has made it to kill someone in the name of self-defense. Floridas Legislature is so obsessed with the right to bear arms that it allows anyone, at any time, in any place, to conceal a gun and if they feel threatened, shoot to stand their ground. Our right to bear arms was meant for true self-protection, not to shoot first and ask questions later. Since passage of the stand your ground law, a gun-toting bravado has emerged that is elevating neighborhood disputes into bloodbaths. Someone took a swing at you at the playground, as happened last year in Tampa? Shoot em. Self defense. No charges filed. Another senseless death. Martins death also should make Florida rethink the idea of allowing gun-toting civilians to act as the eyes and ears of the police. At a minimum, better supervision is needed of neighborhood watch members. Better yet, let trained officers conduct police work, not wannabe cops living out fantasies on patrol in their neighborhoods. Almost a month after the shooting, you would have thought that the shooter, George Zimmerman, would be charged with something. After all, when a civilian shoots another civilian they are generally charged and a jury weighs any claim of self-defense. But in Sanford, the shooters word is golden and he remains free. On Monday, at long last, Gov. Rick Scott ordered a state investigation of the shooting as well as the initial investigation by local law enforcement. Beyond the gun-toting culture thats arisen in Florida, the overlying issue in the shooting of Trayvon Martin is racism. Zimmerman grew suspicious because he saw a young black teen not known in the neighborhood. It was raining, Zimmerman said, and Martin wasnt hurrying along. For that, he attracted attention. And now he is dead. Florida is a balkanized state of races and ethnicities. When you live here, people categorize you as something. After moving from upstate New York, I learned I am a White and a Jew. Bigoted classmates have called my adopted daughter from Cambodia, who is darkskinned, the n-word a number of times. Despite the influx of millions of residents from across the country, Florida remains part of the Deep South and racism continues to be a powerful evil. The shooting of Trayvon Martin reveals the institutionalized racism that remains embedded in Floridas culture, a stain on everyday life, more than 150 years after the Civil War.Steven Kurlander blogs at Kurlys Kommentary, writes a weekly column for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel and is a South Florida communications strategist. Florida Voices.LETTERSWrong attitude toward emergency servicesEditor: While I agree with the writer about drivers who think we want to share their choice of music, whether we like it or not, I must disagree with his other views. If he doesnt like the sound of trash cans or dumpsters being emptied would he rather drive his rubbish in his car to a dump site and get rid of it himself? What perturbed me most though was his attitude to emergency services. The FD boys and gals are required to have their lights on and their siren sounding when they are answering a 911 call. This is for the safety of other road users, to warn them and allow them to safely get out of the way. Unfortunately, they often need to use the horn as well to alert the loud music people or the insular, Its my lane and Im not moving, types. One wonders, from his comments, could the writer be one of those? When a 911 call has been downgraded to a non-emergency, they shut down the lights and sirens but they still continue to the location; they dont stand around catching up with Sunstar. If the writer doesnt like living in an urban setting, with the accompanying noise, perhaps he should move to a rural area where peace prevails. I hope he doesnt complain though when it takes the FD boys and gals the 40 minutes rural response time to get to him when his house catches fire, he is involved in a serious traffic accident or he has a heart attack. I was lucky; they were with me in 4 minutes when I had my heart attack because I live exactly between two Largo firehouses and those wonderful people saved my life. Every time I hear the sirens leaving either fire house (which I do), I think, Thank goodness, they are helping someone who needs them, not what a noise! Sheila Jackson LargoAmericans hate changeEditor: Im so damn sick of all the political spin artists inflaming citizens about gas costs. We complained bitterly when gas was rationed in the 1970s; ditto when gas breached $2.34 a gallon. Yet somehow we managed and moved on. Now we grumble and crouch because some liar on the political stump promises $2.50 a gallon for gas, and in the next breath tries to shift the blame to President Obama for the rising cost of gasoline. Guess what? Well continue to gripe and groan, but somehow figure out how to manage, and move on. But the real question is, will we ignore the spin artists and come to realize the awful truth about gas prices; its the result of free markets (which conservatives claim will solve everything including warts and flatulence), and theres little that government can do (even Bill OReilly has told us so) especially given the state of U.S. politics. If the cost of gasoline is so critical to your lifestyle, there are a few things you can do to lessen the burden: Drive a smaller, more efficient vehicle (no way, those euro-boxes arent safe). Slow down (yeah, right Ill be three minutes late for my hair appointment!). Carpool (oh the horrors give up my freedom!). Use public transportation (with all those stinking low-lifes besides, its so slow!). Check your tires daily (whats a tire them little round thingees that touch the ground?). Service your vehicle like the manufacturer recommends (huh service, whats that?). Ride a bike (what, Ill sweat, and theres no showers at work). Walk if its a mile or less (walk are you nuts, Ill ruin my $200 shoes!), etc. We Americans hate change, especially when it means we have to learn a new way to do something. Our love affair with the automobile is coming to an end. Stop griping and groaning and get used to it, deal with it. There are more important things in life. Mike MacDonald Clearwater Some new drugs for new diseasesIve been noticing all the recent ads for diseases Id never before heard of. So I placed a call to Dr. Rodney Whiffletree, chairman of the Disease and Drug Propagation (DDP) section of the American Pharmaceutical Lobby, whose headquarters are in Marilyn, Md. Heres how the conversation went: Q. Doctor, whats behind all these new ailments and diseases were being warned about? A. Some of them are new and some arent, but the public needs to know about them so they can find a remedy. Q. Let me guess: the remedy is almost always a new drug made by the pharmaceutical companies, right? A. Correct. Q. Im especially interested in the disease known as uromysitisis. Your advertisement says it occurs in shoppers who allow their urinary bladders to get too full while searching for their missing cars in parking garages. A. Thats right. You may have heard uromysitisis mentioned on one of Jerry Seinfelds programs. Q. But that was fiction. The ailment was also fiction. Do you mean to say the DDP would promote an imaginary disease just to sell a new drug? A. Off the record, the U.S. drug industry will do almost anything to sell its drugs. Q. Even if people dont really need them? A. But the people do need them. They just dont know it yet. Thats the job of my department to wake up the public to its unrealized needs. For example, have you noticed the new testosterone advertisements? Theyre all over the place. Q. Yes. They say that most of the worlds men need to have their testosterone levels raised, in order to improve their sex lives. But is that actually true? A. Essentially, yes. Deep in their hearts (or in other parts of their bodies) almost everyone wants a better sex life. The goal of Big Pharma is to produce drugs that will increase testosterone levels, and thus stimulate sex drive. Q. But what about these other newly discovered ailments? A. Such as? Q. Such as meliframozilch. The ads say its a stomach disease that afflicts Armenian cotton farmers in Alabama who eat deep-fried grits. But there are no Armenian cotton farmers in Alabama. A. Youre wrong. We found four, and they all suffered from meliframozilch. So we came up with a remedy, a drug called Fimrastopol. We ran eight million dollars worth of ads and scared the daylights out of every cotton farmer in the South. Now Fimrastopol is flying off the shelves. Q. It sounds unethical to me to find some obscure disease and then magnify it to the point where millions of otherwise healthy people are panicked into buying a drug they dont really need. A. You may be right, but the guilt belongs just as much to the advertising industry as to Big Pharma. The main goal of advertising is (and always was) to persuade people to spend money on things they dont really need. Q. What are some of the other fairly useless drugs youre most proud of? A. Our latest is Dolcevik sugar-free pills (costing $12.50 for a 20-count package) that guard you against developing hyperglycinema. Q. Whats that?A. Its a blood condition that comes from eating too much candy when youre watching a movie. Millions of people have it but dont realize it, especially when its a long movie such as Gone With the Wind. Dolcevik pills are shaped just like M&Ms, and you can eat just as many as youd like without screwing up your blood sugar level. And when the movie ends you feel so virtuous. Q. And poor? At $12.50 for 20 pills? A. Yes, but nobody twists your arm to buy Dolcevik. Q. When Big Pharma announces a new drug, the initial newspaper or magazine ad may occupy a full page telling the many wonders of the drug. But this is followed by two or three pages listing the hundreds of harmful side effects that may result from taking it. Arent the drug companies afraid these warnings will scare off the public? A. Big Pharma has no choice. The Food and Drug Administration requires us to list all the adverse side effects that occurred during testing of the drug. But the beauty of this is that people either dont believe the warnings or simply choose to ignore them. Americans love their drugs. In many cases, too much. Q. An investigative reporter, Alison Bass, has written a book, Side Effects, that tells of the lying and trickery drug companies pulled off in connection with the psychiatric drugs Prozac and Paxil. Its rumored that a movie version of the book may result. Would that disturb you, Doctor? A. Yes, indeed. Ill admit it. But it wont really change anything. As long as many of todays drugs are genuinely beneficial, people will tend to overlook the ones that are fraudulent or unnecessary. Human nature always prevails. So does Big Pharmas money. Weve got tons of it.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Among its dubious achievements this year, the Florida Legislature passed a law authorizing random drug tests for state workers. Guess whos exempt? Lawmakers themselves. So now the clerk down at the DMV gets to pee in a cup but not the knuckleheads in Tallahassee who control $70 billion in public funds. Whom do you think is more dangerous to the future of Florida? In the session that just ended, the Legislature jacked up tuition on state college students while creating a new university to placate one cranky senator. It threw more than 4,400 state workers out of their jobs while handing out more than $800 million in tax breaks to businesses. Clearly, legislators are impaired. Is it meth? Coke? Mushrooms? Well never know. A few months ago, I offered to pay for drug tests for all 160 state senators and representatives. The deal was that all of them had to do it. Not a penny of taxpayer money would be spent. Shockingly, the Republican leadership showed zero interest in my proposal. However, they were very excited about Gov. Rick Scotts plan to impose mandatory urine-testing on welfare applicants, who statistically use drugs at a lower rate than the public. That particular law is currently stalled in the courts because of serious constitutional questions, which is where the new statute will end up as well, if Scott signs it. Meanwhile, lets hear from its proud sponsor, Rep. Jimmie Smith of Lecanto, which is near Inverness, which is sort of near Wildwood. Smiths Web page says hes a security officer who is retired from the Army. He has been in the Legislature about 18 months. This is not to do drug testing because theyre state workers, he said. This is to do drug testing for one problem: Drugs in Florida. The new law would allow state agencies to randomly test up to 10 percent of their workers every three months. Failing one test can get you fired; the present law requires treatment after the first positive urine screen. An amendment that would have included drug-testing the governor and lawmakers was indignantly rejected. Political theater, whined Rep. Smith. It was found to be unconstitutional to drug-test elected officials because it prevents us, as citizens, from having that First Amendment right. Based on that fog-headed explanation, which not even Cheech could explain to Chong, Smiths urine should be the first to get screened. He was attempting to reference a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down a Georgia law requiring political candidates not just elected officials to take drug tests. The ruling wasnt based on the First Amendment but on the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Its the same constitutional provision at the core of multiple legal challenges to Scotts drug-testing initiatives. While private companies may screen employees whether or not there is cause or reasonable suspicion, the judiciary often takes a dim view when government tries that. A few Florida lawmakers pointed out the hypocrisy of excluding themselves from a statewide drug-testing program. I have to conclude that this is an elitist body not prepared or courageous (enough) to lead by example. Shame on you, Rep. Mark Pafford, a Democrat from West Palm Beach, told his colleagues. Carlos Trujillo, a Republican from Miami, agreed that the governor and elected officeholders should be drug-tested with other state workers. Still he voted to ice the amendment, citing concerns over the Georgia ruling. That decision, written for the majority by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, criticized the Georgia law because it diminishes personal privacy, and was mainly a symbolic remedy to a situation that hadnt even been documented drug use among political candidates. Ironically, the same argument can be made against random testing of Florida employees. Jimmie Smith and other supporters of the bill didnt produce any proof that drug abuse was rampant in the state work force. They just wanted to look like tough guys. The High Court has sanctioned government drug-testing for certain professions in which public safety is at stake. For example, a train engineer may be ordered to submit a urine sample even if theres no indication of a substance problem. You could make a strong case that lawmakers fall into the same high-risk category, considering the damage they do in their annual train wreck known as the Legislative session. The offer still stands. Ill pay for every one of them to pee in a cup. The governor, too. In fact, well let him go first.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Lichtenberger has launched an illustrated childrens book titled Hold My Paw, based on the true story of her courageous Labrador retriever, Snapper. Born with a nonhereditary birth defect that caused lifethreatening challenges, Snappers story of defying odds to become a trained pet therapy dog and award winning agility competitor will delight and inspire children to realize their dreams and achieve success. Hardcover books are $15 plus tax at PARC in St. Petersburg and online at www.parc-fl.org. All book sales benefit PARC, a nonprofit agency supporting children and adults with developmental disabilities. Lichtenberger is a volunteer for PARC with two of her certified therapy dogs, Snapper and her sibling Flounder. While visiting PARCs residential program for children and young adults with severe developmental disabilities on a regular basis, Lichtenberger was inspired to tell Snappers story as she witnessed PARCs children living life to the fullest and focusing on what they can achieve rather than what they cannot. The result is Hold My Paw. PARC is continuously seeking alternative revenue sources to offset unpredictable government funding. Hold My Paw is a much needed financial resource as well as important message to the community of supporting individuals living with a disability and the friends they have to help them reach their goals. For more information on how to purchase Hold My Paw or to have a book signing and pawtograph session at your business, school or community event, call Nancy Giles at 410-6302 or email ngiles@parc-fl.or Visit www.pa rc-fl.org or www.holdmypaw.org for more information.New Horizons support group meets April 7LARGO The New Horizons Support Group for Widowed People will meet on Saturday, April 7, 2 p.m., at the west clubhouse of Imperial Palms Apartments, 101 Imperial Palms Drive.

They contain a wealth of service, family, and economic information conveniently in one place, and which may be unavailable any other place or certainly not as easy to get to. Pensions have been part of the military experience since the beginning of this country, and revolutionary war pensions are some of the most valuable since they date back to the countrys founding. Payment of military pensions is a matter of law, so predictably the path to understanding them can be rather convoluted and difficult to follow. In the years following an armed conflict, criteria for pension eligibility claims have generally moved in the direction from more restrictive to more liberal. That trend applied not only to the degree of injury that qualified an applicant, but also simply the length and quality of service. The explanation for this progression from difficult to get to easier to get is rather straightforward. Immediately after a conflict the government typically didnt have the money to fund lots of pensions so the criteria was fairly stringent and were generally based on receipt of wounds that prevented a person from earning a living to support himself and his family, or which resulted in death. As time passed, the treasury accumulated more money to fund pensions, and the number of pensioners fell because of natural attrition thus the law changed to make them easier to get. Finding pension files can sometimes be difficult not because of where they are kept, but because they may not exist when, in fact, they should. Fires at record storage areas burned many application files. The two most notable were a fire in 1800, which was accidental, and another in 1814 as a consequence of the British occupation of Washington, D.C., during the war of 1812. The government did its best to reconstruct those records, but some of the files of the earliest applications are sorely lacking or nonexistent. Our ancestors themselves sometimes took steps during the application process, which greatly benefitted our search for information. Every time the criteria for eligibility changed, our ancestors could reapply for a pension. And if they applied in one county for a pension and it was refused, sometimes they went to another county or another state and applied there. The consequence of that is a pension application file that can be filled with information from multiple application efforts. Whether the appeal for a pension was approved or not, the file still contains all of the application paperwork. The most fundamental place to go for revolutionary pension application files is the National Archives. The National Archives website (www.archives.gov) has instructions on how to make requests using either a form and postal mail, or how to make a request online. Either process is easy to do. It will cost you from $25 to $75 depending on the amount of information you want from the file and, it will take up to six months for the request to produce results. You can ask for the file to be sent you in either paper format or digital format.In this day and age there are some digital sources we can go for the same information. One of the most notable is a website called Fold3 (www.fold3.com). It specializes in digitizing military records. It is a fee site and an annual subscription costs around $80. (I might mention that if you are a member of the Pinellas Genealogy Society, you can get that same subscription for $40.) At that site you can view on your computer screen all of the documents in an application file that exist at the National Archives. You also can download those documents to your computer and print them should you wish. If you do the math, you can see that Fold3 may be an attractive alternative considering the $75 fee for a single, full file from the national archives. Another online source for pension application files is at the website called Heritage Quest. Although it is a fee site, only organizations can be subscribers, not individuals. All is not lost however, because most public libraries subscribe to the service. And things get even better you can access Heritage Quest from your computer at home for free if you go through your library website. All you need is a library card to gain access. One of the databases at Heritage Quest consists of revolutionary war pension application files. In this case, however, you cannot find the complete contents of the files, but instead about 10 documents that have been selected from each file based on their genealogical value. If you were to get this same collection of 10 documents from the National Archives, the cost would be $25 (plus the possible six month processing time). The documents available at Heritage Quest, as at Fold3, can be downloaded to your computer and printed if you wish. As you can see, access to these important documents today is very easy. If you want more insight into pension files and how to get and use them, the Pinellas Genealogy Society has three classes that may be of interest to you. One is on the general topic of military records (what are they, where are they, what they contain, how you get them), another is on using the Heritage Quest website (what databases are there, and how to use them), and the third is getting the most out of the National Archives website (with an emphasis on ordering records).

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesLeader Section B March 29, 2012Visit www.TBNweekly.com Yesterday and Today, Friday, March 30, 7 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets are $27 in advance and $32 the day of the show. Call 587-6793. The national touring sensation, Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience, is unique, standing apart from any other Beatles tribute out there. The band does away with the wigs and the accents and just concentrates on the Beatles music. The audience is encouraged to fill out a request form with their favorite Beatles song and reason why they chose the song. Those requests are organized five minutes before show time. The audiences requests make the set list for the evening and their stories provide the evenings narrative. Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Friday, March 30, 8 p.m., at the Mahaffey Theater, Progress Energy Center for the Arts, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets range from $45 to $65. Call 8925767 or visit www.themahaffey.com. Stu Cook and Doug Cosmo may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits. Though the pair initially only planned to play private parties, Creedence Clearwater Revisited now performs up to 100 shows a year and has released the album Recollection, certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2008. Fiddler on the Roof, Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31, at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Show times are Friday, 8 p.m.; and Saturday, 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets range from $50 to $70. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. Starring John Preece as Tevye, the national touring production of Fiddler on the Roof brings the wit and wisdom of its central character to area audiences in three performances. Tevyes wrestling with the new customs of a younger generation is punctuated by an unforgettable score that weaves the haunting strains of Sunrise, Sunset and the rousing If I Were A Rich Man with the exuberant Matchmaker, Matchmaker and triumphant Tradition. When his daughters choose suitors who defy his idea of a proper match, Tevye comes to realize, through a series of incidents that are at once comic and bittersweet, that his children will begin traditions of their own. At the storys close, the villagers of Anatevka are forced to leave their homes and even the sturdy mores that have guided everyday life begin to crumble. Paradoxically, it is the enforced loss of the rigid traditions and home life that Tevye has tried so tenaciously to preserve that leads the family to reconcile and draw closer still. 15th annual Crawsh Festival, Friday through Sunday, March 30 through April 1, at Cajun Caf on the Bayou, 8101 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park. Admission at the gate is $15 on Friday, $20 on Saturday and $15 on Sunday. Advance tickets available online at ETIX.COM are $10 for Friday, $15 for Saturday, $10 for Sunday or $25 for a three-day pass. For information, call 546-6732. This years festival will feature performances by Pine Leaf Boys, Lil Brian and the Zydeco Travelers, Donna Angelle and the Zydeco Posse, JBs ZydecoZoo and Ramblegrass Band. Dwight Dupree will offer dance lessons on Friday and Saturday. Visit www.cajuncafeonthe bayou.com. Suzy Bogguss, Saturday, March 31, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets range from $25 to $35. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Bogguss knows that folk songs are the scrapbook of the American experience but as music education fades from the public school system, she found herself worrying that these beautiful melodies are in danger of being overlooked. Thats why she resolved to record these timeless songs in an updated but reverent way so that everyone can sing along on songs like Red River Valley. The platinum selling songstress already has a full bookshelf of Grammy and CMA awards. With the release of American Folk Songbook, she can put her own book up there, too. The CD and companion songbook was released last July at all Cracker Barrel Country Stores followed by a wide release to other retail and digital outlets. The release is the natural progression of an artist who has demonstrated skill and passion for all types of music in her career. Songs like Aces, Drive South, Someday Soon, Outbound Plane and Letting Go took her to the top of the country music charts. Along the way she won raves from critics and peers including winning a Grammy in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album, the Country Music Associations Horizon Award in 1992 and album of the Year Award in 1994. By LEE CLARK ZUMPEPINELLAS PARK The 15th annual Crawfish Festival will run Friday through Sunday, March 30 through April 1, at Cajun Caf on the Bayou, 8101 Park Blvd. Admission at the gate is $15 on Friday, $20 on Saturday and $15 on Sunday. Advance tickets are $10 for Friday, $15 for Saturday, $10 for Sunday or $25 for a three-day pass. Advance tickets are available online at etix.com. The highlight of the festival: those tasty freshwater crustaceans that look like miniature lobsters, served up in authentic Cajun and Louisiana style. When in season, Cajun Caf offers boiled crawfish as a dine-in special, available only as long as the supply lasts. The generous helping is served piping hot with corn on the cob, potatoes, onions and bay leaves. Though Cajun Caf on the Bayous inside dining area is closed to the general public during the festival, most Cajun Caf menu items will be available for purchase from the food windows. The caf will reopen for normal business Wednesday, April 4. Since it doesnt seem right to partake in this uniquely Cajun experience without musical accompaniment, organizers have lined up fitting entertainment in the form of zydeco music and dancing.Zydeco band lineupZydeco evolved in the bayou country of Louisiana in the 19th century, derived from Creole musical traditions. It combines tunes of French origin with elements of Caribbean music, blues and roots music. Some of todays zydeco artists embrace modern genre components, as well, such as soul, reggae, hip-hop and ska. Scheduled to perform at this years Crawfish Festival are the Pine Leaf Boys, Lil Brian & the Zydeco Travelers, Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse, JBs ZydecoZoo and Ramblegrass Band. Louisianas Pine Leaf Boys have made a name for themselves, racking up five Grammy nominations and two Cajun French Music Association Awards. Known for wild shows and thoughtful arrangements, the band presents its own incomparable brand of Cajun music with youthful fervor as they revive obscure songs of past masters and add them into their repertoire. According to the bands website, the Pine Leaf Boys strive to present the beautiful, powerful music of their ancestors and present the real Cajun music to the world and prove that it is still thriving and full of life. Lil Brian couldnt help but fall in love with zydeco: He is related to two of the genres most respected accordionists, John and Geno Delafose. Drawn to the music, Lil Brian attended Buckwheat Zydecos shows in Houston as a youngster, eventually becoming a pupil of Stanley Buckwheat Dural. In the mid 1990s, Lil Brian & the Zydeco Travelers were signed by Rounder Records and recorded their first two albums, Fresh and Z-Funk. In this milieu, Lil Brian & The Travelers have nurtured a reputation as the most innovative and musically accomplished zydeco band on the scene, drawing on contemporary urban sounds while paying reverential tribute to their cultural roots. Early in her career, Donna Angelles music was influenced by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield and Gladys Knight entertainers she saw on shows such as Soul Train and American Bandstand. By the time she formed her second band, Angelle started showcasing a wider spectrum of styles, including hip-hop and zydeco. A meeting with Mike Lachney of Bad Weather Productions put her on track to taking the zydeco circuit by storm. Six CDs later, Angelle and her Zydeco Posse are known as a high-energy band that knows how to keep its audience on its feet and begging for more. Not all zydeco bands are based in the Creole counties of Louisiana and Texas: J.B.s ZydecoZoo hails from Florida. Pianist John Babich J.B. was so enamored with the city of New Orleans and its musical heritage that he felt compelled to acquire an accordion and start playing zydeco shows in Tallahassee. After attending Florida State Universitys School of Music in the 1970s, Babich became a touring musician and played in several bands. He recorded five albums with Bill Wharton. In 2002, J.B.s ZydecoZoo was born, debuting with a concert at an American Legion Hall in Tallahassee. Our music is high energy, rockin, rhythmic zydeco in the vein of Beau Jocque, Clifton Chenier, C.J. Chenier, Rockin Dopsie and Stanley Dural Jr., Babich says in his bands biography. Also, my debut CD release J.B.s ZydecoZoo, contains 10 smokin original Zydeco tunes. Rounding out the festival lineup is Tampa Bays own Ramblegrass Band, a bluegrass/jamgrass outfit featuring Bob Edwards on guitar, Mike Godwin on banjo, Phil Myers Jr. on mandolin and Jack Ray on standup bass. The festival schedule is as follows: Friday, March 30 Gates open 5 p.m. Dance lessons with Dwight Dupree 5 to 5:30 p.m. J.B.s ZydecoZoo 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Lil Brian & the Zydeco Travelers 7:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday, March 31 Gates open 1 p.m. Ramblegrass Band 1 to 3 p.m. Dance lessons with Dwight Dupree 3 to 3:30 p.m. Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse 3:30 to 7 p.m. Pine Leaf Boys 7 to 11 p.m. Sunday, April 1 Gates open 1 p.m. Pine Leaf Boys 1 to 4 p.m. Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse 4 to 6:30 p.m. Ramblegrass Band 6:30 to 8 p.m. Cajun Caf on the Bayou was established in February 1996, by Joe Thibodaux of Thibodaux, La. According to the cafs website, when Joe started the venture, he hand-selected his favorite recipes from friends and family in the Thibodaux area. Many family arguments ensued over Joes choices, the website says, but Joe won out and most of his personal collection of favorite recipes are still served at Cajun Caf on the Bayou to this day. Joes daughter and son-in-law, Rebecca and Paul Unwin, purchased the Cafe in May 2003. Lawn chairs will be permitted on grassy areas of the festival grounds. No outside food or beverages will be permitted anywhere on the grounds.Bayou bash showcases crawdads Pine Leaf Boys. RIC only RIC only RIC only *With purchase. Prices above are per hearing aid.

A fresh and funny retelling of the classic fairy tale, the film also stars Armie Hammer as the Prince, Sean Bean as the King, and Nathan Lane as the Queens hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. After a beloved King vanishes, his ruthless wife seizes control of the kingdom and keeps her beautiful 18-year-old stepdaughter, Snow White, hidden away in the palace. But when the princess attracts the attention of a charming and wealthy visiting prince, the jealous Queen banishes the girl to a nearby forest. Taken in by a band of rebellious but kindhearted dwarfs, Snow White blossoms into a brave young woman determined to save her country from the Queen. With the support of her new friends, she roars into action to reclaim her birthright and win back her Prince in this magical adventure comedy that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. Wrath of the TitansGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Edgar Ramrez, Toby Kebbell, Danny Huston, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson Director: Jonathan Liebesman Rated: PG-13 A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson) is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanitys lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus godly son, Ares (Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans strength grows stronger as Zeus remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Pike), Poseidons demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.BullyGenre: Documentary Director: Lee Hirsch Rated: R Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, Bully is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary.

Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children.Dark TideGenre: Action, drama and thriller Cast: Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez Director: John Stockwell Rated: PG-13 Kate Mathieson (Halle Berry), once renowned for swimming with great white sharks, spends her days giving mundane wildlife tours after the tragic death of her mentor.

Pictures release.Director: Michael Dowse Rated: R Not content with his job as a bouncer at a local Beantown bar and a bit of an embarrassment to his accomplished family, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of the kind of success enjoyed by minor league hockey goon Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber). When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a bloody fist fight that Doug easily wins, the coach of the Halifax Highlanders sees potential in this mammoth sized man who is only hampered by his lack of any hockey playing ability and his brothers old figure skates. Standing up to the taunts of the other players, Doug manages to join the team, and with the encouragement of his hockey obsessed best friend (Jay Baruchel) quickly becomes a rising star. Soon hell have the opportunity to face off against Ross The Boss Rhea and perhaps finally land a girlfriend. Now all he needs is to learn how to skate.IntrudersGenre: Horror and thriller Cast: Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Pilar Lpez De Ayala, Daniel Brhl, Kerry Fox, Hctor Alterio and Ella Purnell Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Rated: R Though no one can see him, Hollow Face lurks in the corners, desperately desiring love but only knowing how to spread fear and hate. He creeps into the life of John Farrow (Clive Owen) after Farrows beloved 13-year-old daughter Mia (Ella Purnell) is assaulted in their home. The line between the real and the imaginary blurs as fissures start to open within the family unit. It seems that no security measure can keep Hollow Face out.
