Moving LargoCitizens ask for bicycle lanes, sidewalks on community streets By TOM GERMONDLARGO A small group of citizens told transportation planners July 19 that they wanted to see more bicycle paths, sidewalks and other improvements along Indian Rocks Road and other corridors in the city. City officials and their consultants are working on a plan to establish a network of community streets to accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists and recreation in addition to vehicles and transit. We are conducting public outreach. This meeting is really key in that effort, said Jon Sewell, a consultant with Kimley-Horn and Associates of Tampa During the meeting, through an exercise, participants put notes on city maps to indicate their preferences for transportation improvements. Several citizens suggested bicycle lanes on Indian Rocks Road. City commissioners have also pointed out the need for improvements along the road, which is maintained by the county, at their meetings. County Transportation and Stormwater Director Peter Yauch said July 20 the county has sidewalks projects for Indian Rocks Road in the countys capital improvement plans. We did the resurfacing six to eight months ago. But we do have sidewalks going in, Yauch said. Plans call for two phases of sidewalks. In the first phase a sidewalk will be built from Dryer Avenue. Construction is slated to start in the first quarter of 2013. In the second phase, a sidewalk will be built from Walsingham Road to Wilcox Road. The sidewalks will be built on the east side of Indian Rocks Road in both projects. For the second phase, much of the funding comes from the federal governments Safe Routes to School Grant program, Yauch said. Cost estimates for the work were not readily available. Its kind of a difficult road to build sidewalks on. Oftentimes, sidewalks projects really are drainage projects because you got a roadside ditch and so you have to take care of that before you can put in a sidewalk, Yauch said. About 10 years ago there was a plan to reconstruct Indian Rocks Road that By TOM GERMONDLARGO The Pinellas County School Board is preparing to pencil in some face time with three candidates for school superintendent. The board decided July 17 to interview Dr. Michael Grego, Dr. Constance Jones and Dr. Christian Cutter after meeting for about three hours with Florida School Board Association Executive Director Wayne Blanton, who conducted the search for a new superintendent. Blanton said he didnt want to recommend applicants who were just alike. I also thought it was worthwhile to possibly look at an out of state candidate, Blanton said during the meeting. The board whittled down the list of the 50 applicants before deciding to interview three this month, leaving open the possibility of using a search firm to bring in more applicants if the board is not comfortable with Grego, Jones or Cutter. The new superintendent will succeed John Stewart, who plans to retire in December. As a school board member this is probably the most important decision you will ever make, Blanton said. You want someone who is going to be here for a long time. You want someone thats going to be able to work with you. You want somebody who is going to be able to work with your teachers, your parents and your community.Michael GregoGrego, the superintendent of Osceola County schools from July 2008 to June 2011, turned around the Osceola County school district in a short time, Blanton said.

Page 6A.Zoning change aids hotel plansA Marriott hotel proposed for a 1.5acre waterfront property on American Legion Drive moved closer to reality at the July 10 Madeira Beach City Commission meeting. The commission approved a change in the zoning of the property from Commercial Retail/Commercial General (C-3) to Planned Development (PD). The change allows the developer more flexibility in areas such as density, building height and setbacks and structural requirements. In return, the developer may be asked to commit to additional amenities and civic improvements that benefit the city. Madeira Beach has seen a loss of tourist facilities in recent years, and new hotel accommodations are seen as a much needed and desired addition. Planning consultant Dave Healy told the commission the project met the citys entire comprehensive plan and planned development regulations. Commissioner Terry Lister said he feared the zoning change would mean all the codes go out the window. Healy said the Planned Development designation does not set aside all code provisions, but provides developers the flexibility to do more than previously allowed. This is an important project, but a lot of details still need to be worked out, Healy said. Under the planned development regulations, the city gets benefits if the project is approved, he added. The prospective co-owner of the hotel, Steve Page of BCTM Group in Indian Shores, described the facility as having 90 rooms, a restaurant/bistro, meeting room, outside swimming pool, spa, a captains club consisting of bathrooms, showers, gathering space and lockers for boaters, and 26 boat slips. By TOM GERMONDLARGO Despite budget woes, recent city commissioners comments indicate that they wont tinker with their funding for the Largo Central Railroad, which attracts about 3,500 passengers over each weekend it operates. This is the most popular thing we do said Mayor Pat Gerard July 17. We (the city) dont even do it and people love us for it. The miniature railroad track at Largo Central Park is run by Largo Central Railroad Inc. The president of the railroad, Warren Jamison, said questions and comments at a recent City Commission meeting about the money provided by the city to the railroad on an annual basis prompted him to explain how the money is spent. The $21,500 allocated by the city to the railroad goes toward replacing 2,000 feet of track per year at about $20,000, a set of riding cars annually at about $8,000 and to pay the insurance, which is about $4,500 a year, he said. All of the citys funding is used for operations involving the publics use of the railroad. The operating budget for the railroad is $45,000 to $50,000 annually. The rest of the money comes out of the organizations pockets or through donations. Commissioner Curtis Holmes suggested July 17, as he has previously, that the railroad charge a small ridership fee to raise revenue because the city and the railroad group were both spending a lot of money on the operation. He said he was not out to put you out of business. Its a wonderful venue. Even Ive ridden the thing. The point is were supposed to look out for the folks money, and personally, I still think you guys ought to charge two bits a ride if nothing else but for your own kitty.

Craig said he was informed that if the railroad charges for rides, it jumps into a different insurance package of high-dollar insurance and has more regulations from the state of Florida to take care of then they do now. Other commissioners touted the railroad. Its a wonderful thing going by and seeing the crowds you guys bring in, Commissioner Michael Smith said. My nephew went out there and first time on the train and the kid loves Thomas the Train and was screaming Thomas the Train the entire time. You have my support all the time for this wonderful experience. Commissioner Woody Brown said his family goes to the park the first weekend of every month and they enjoy the train. Im very proud of what you guys do out there, he said. The Largo Central Park Railroad has about 1.2 miles of main line track in the park. Public runs are held on the first full weekend of each month. Charlie Harper, a Largo Area Historical Society vice president and former city commissioner, said July 20 that the railroad means a great deal to Largo, far more then many people will ever understand. Largo does not have many destination points, few reasons for people to visit the city except for business reasons, he said. The opening and development of Central Park and the building of the railroad have given Largo one very popular designation point. On the hottest summer day you can find long lines of kids of all ages waiting in line to ride the rails. Keep in mind this is no Bush Gardens, no Disney adventure, just a little rail road that moves through a park in Largo yet people by the thousands wait to ride. I would say Largo has a real winner here, Harper said.The railroads historyThe railroad originated in 1991 by five men who saw a large field that formerly was the county fairgrounds and wondered if it would be possible to build a miniature railroad there, Jamison said. The City Commission approved a request to build a railroad. Construction began July 4, 1991, and completed in October.

PETERSBURG A 21-year-old male transient was arrested about 5 p.m. Thursday, July 19, accused of sexually battering a 14-year-old on May 3. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, David D. Corey met the unnamed female in a public park in Pinellas Park and later the same day, sexually battered the victim in the garage of an abandoned residence located in the 3600 block of 51st Avenue North in St. Petersburg. The 14-year-old victim subsequently reported the crime to a deputy in the area, who began the initial investigation and then forwarded the case to detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit. Through their investigation, CAC detectives were able to identify Corey as the suspect and were further able to obtain a DNA match to the suspect. The suspect agreed to meet detectives for an interview on the afternoon of July 19. He was subsequently arrested for one-count sexual battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Detectives say there is no indication at this time that there are other victims. The investigation continues.Burglary suspect in custody after pursuitSEMINOLE A burglary suspect was in custody July 19 after leading deputies on a pursuit in the Seminole area earlier in the afternoon. Pinellas County sheriffs deputies identified the suspect as Gary Nolan, 48. They say Nolan is a career criminal, who was released from the Florida Department of Corrections in January after serving seven years on similar charges of burglary and more. Nolan was arrested after a pursuit that began about 1:13 p.m. The pursuit began after Nolan fled from burglary detectives after an arrest attempt at a Largo area golf pro shop. Sheriffs burglary detectives had been investigating numerous residential burglaries in the Harbor Bluffs and Belleair Bluffs area. Deputies said many of the burglaries were at homes that had open garage doors. Items stolen include golf clubs, golf bags, fishing equipment and more. Detectives developed information that the suspect was trying to sell the stolen golf equipment to local pro shops. Just after 1 p.m., burglary Sgt. Jeremy Nygren and Detective Ward Snyder observed the suspect at the Pinecrest Golf Club, 1200 Eighth Ave. SW in Largo. Nygren and Snyder challenged Nolan and utilized an electronic control device; however, Nolan was able to escape in a stolen white Lexus SUV with a stolen tag. He reportedly grazed Snyder with the vehicle as he fled the scene. Nolan proceeded from the Pinecrest location in Largo, eventually heading southbound on Seminole Boulevard, where uniform deputies closed in behind. During the course of the pursuit, Deputy Josh Jones was involved in a crash at 54th Avenue and Seminole Boulevard. Two civilian vehicles were involved in the crash. According to investigators with the Sheriffs Major Accident Investigation Team, Jones was following Nolans vehicle southbound on Seminole Boulevard, when Nolan suddenly changed lanes just as a car in front of Jones stopped. Jones rear-ended the civilians vehicle, a 2007 Honda Accord, which collided into another vehicle, a 2005 Suzuki hatchback. The occupants of those vehicles declined medical treatment. Jones was checked for minor injuries. The Lexus continued south and then eastbound on Bay Pines Boulevard, where at some point the Lexus slowed or stalled as deputies boxed-in the vehicle near 100th Way. Nolan was removed from the Lexus and placed into custody. He continued to struggle with deputies and refused to comply with their commands. An electronic control device was then utilized to gain compliance. Nolan was taken to the Pinellas County Jail where he remains on bonds totaling $80,750. Charges include aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest without violence, petit theft, driving with a permanently revoked license, dealing in stolen property, fleeing and eluding at high speed with wanton disregard and two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle. Additional charges are pending.One dead, one injured in boating crashREDINGTON BEACH Deputies assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Marine Unit are investigating a boat crash in Redington Shores that left one teenager dead and another injured. According to the sheriffs report, deputies responded to the crash at about 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17. The crash occurred at the docks at the Redington Yacht and Tennis Club, 17717 Gulf Blvd. in Redington Beach. According to deputies, 15-year-old Brandon Noah of Redington Shores was operating the 23-foot twin engine, cat hull open-fishing vessel with 15-year-old Noah Epstein of Largo onboard as a passenger. The girls identified as 15-year-old Deviny Boese of St. Petersburg and 16-year-old Sarah Dobbs of Pinellas Park were on a tube and being pulled by the vessel. Deputies say the boat came too close to the dock and the tube struck the dock ejecting the girls. According to deputies, Boese was ejected directly into the piling. Noah jumped out of the boat and assisted the girls out of the water. He and others at the dock administered CPR on Boese until Seminole Fire Rescue arrived on scene. In the meantime, Epstein left the scene on the vessel and went to Noahs home to notify his parents about the crash. Boese was transported to St. Petersburg General Hospital for treatment of life threatening injuries. She was pronounced deceased at 1:45 p.m. Dobbs was transported to All Childrens Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. She suffered lacerations to her ankles. Deputies issued two citations to Noah for no boater identification and reckless operation of a vessel resulting in a fatality. The investigation continues.Seminole dentist arrested for fraudSEMINOLE Pinellas County sheriffs narcotics detectives arrested a local dentist Tuesday, July 24, for multiple counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. According to a report from the Sheriffs Office, Nadia ONeal, 51, of Indian Shores was booked into the Pinellas County Jail just before 2:50 p.m. on three counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, three counts of insurance fraud and one count of knowingly employing any person to perform duties outside the scope. ONeal is owner of Nu Smile Dental, 13611 Park Blvd., Seminole. Detectives originally received an anonymous complaint stating that ONeal was obtaining narcotics illegally and committing insurance fraud at her Seminole office. Detectives said that ONeal would advise her staff that they were out of triazolam, which is used to perform sedation procedures within the dental office. She then would instruct staff to call in a prescription with her orders for triazolam, using employees names from the clinic. The employees health insurance was used during the purchase of the prescriptions at a reduction in cost and the employees never received the medications. The triazolam was administered to patients at the dental office and the patients were charged for the sedation treatment. Triazolam is a schedule C IV benzodiazepine narcotic used by dentists as an oral sedation on anxious dental patients. Investigators determined that the incidents occurred on the following dates: July 26, 2011 Triazolam .25mg 20 pills Aug. 9, 2011 Triazolam .25mg 20 pills Sept. 16, 2011 Triazolam .25 mg 20 pills Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Narcotics Division at 582-2828.

Had interaction with minority groups, were among the comments Blanton heard during his search. Grego received high praise from John McKay, former chairman of the Osceola County School Board. McKay wrote in a letter of recommendation that Grego led our district with the highest degree of integrity. He fought for the students whether in the community or at the state and national levels, McKay wrote. Blanton said that Gregos strongest attributes are his ability to work with board, community and school leaders. He said that Grego is strongly focused on student achievements, articulate in public meetings and is very, very professional. He has good relationships with parents and students. But the makeup of the School Board changed and Grego felt there was unethical conduct, prompting him to seek other employment. Blanton said that Grego told him he had so much interaction with board, he didnt have time for staff meetings and his other duties. He bent over backwards to work with them, Blanton said, quoting sources. Grego, who lives in St. Cloud, was interim chancellor of public education for Florida from June 2011 to November 2011. The officials Blanton talked to in the Department of Education said they had the highest amount of respect for Grego and that he understands the system at the state level. He was assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction November 2002 to June 2008 in the Hillsborough County school district. Among his awards, he was superintendent of the year for Florida 2009-2010 Statewide Award from Fine Arts Educators promoting art. When Blanton asked Grego in what ways he could improve, Grego said he wished he had more patience. Asked by Tampa Bay Newspapers why he was attracted to the Pinellas County job, Grego said I have lived most of my life in the Tampa Bay area and know that the best way to preserve the quality of life that exists in Pinellas County and to make it even better is to build the very best public education system possible to benefit not just our parents and students but also our businesses and all of our residents. I believe I possess the qualifications and experiences that will improve academic achievement and district efficiencies, and foster collaboration with all of the communitys stakeholders. I have extensive experience at the highest levels of public education in Florida. I know the playing field, the players, and the best practices that will foster the highest levels of student performance, Grego said.Constance JonesConstance Jones is said to be the ultimate professional. The chief academic officer for the Lee County School District since 2003, Jones said in her resume she achieved the highest graduation rate and the lowest dropout rate the district has had in the past 10 years during the 2009-2010 school year. She said in her resume that her 25 years of experience in public education administration included financial and operational responsibilities, as well as the oversight of curriculum and instruction for early childhood through adult education. She is called a quite leader, Blanton said, who is very good with parents, extremely caring, pleasant, very professional. Her title is the equivalent of the deputy superintendent, Blanton said. Shes good at briefing school board members, has good rapport with staff and is very supportive of principals, he said. Joseph Burke, superintendent of the Lee County schools, said in a reference letter that Jones displays a strong commitment to a student first philosophy in all decisions. Jones expanded program opportunities to attract and encourage students to a program of studies that would enable them to be successful in both high school and beyond. Everybody I talked to said this is the ultimate professional if you want this type of person to improve academic performance, Blanton said. Jones was one of four finalists for Palm Beach Countys superintendent. She is a hard worker, puts in long hours. This is a positive, negative. Shes a workaholic. Some people consider that positive. Some people said you need to slow down now and then, Blanton said. Jones, had a minimal relationship with unions, Blanton said. She is not overly assertive. She has not been heavily involved with the teachers union, Blanton said. All the tough parental issues get put in her lap. Prior to her current position, she was director of education policy for the Commonwealth Policy Institute Network in Washington, D.C., and an accreditation specialist for the Maryland State Department of Education and elementary principal in Fort Myers. The National School Boards Association selected Jones as one of the top executive educators in North America for 1993. Jones told Tampa Bay Newspapers she was attracted to the job opening because the Pinellas County School District has a reputation of providing high quality programs and opportunities for students. The district has a strong, stable, and talented school board whose core values and vision of percent student success are an excellent fit with my own passion to ensure that we have a high quality public education system. I was also very encouraged to see the strong interest and involvement of the business and community leaders in supporting the school system, Jones said.Christian CutterWhen Blanton called Nick Gledich, superintendent for the Colorado Springs School District, to gather information about Christian Cutter, Gledich didnt mince words. He said, Hire him. Get him. Get him to Florida as quickly as you can. He is one of the finest persons Ive ever known. Hes one of the best school administrators Ive ever known. Cutter, who lives in Greenwood Village, Colo., has been the assistant superintendent of Douglas County District from September 2010 to the present. Douglas County is one of the biggest geographical districts in the United States, with 80 schools, Blanton said. Very professional, very articulate, hard working, Blanton said. Can take on the tough issues, and does. I think this is a candidate who gives you a little diversity in where you are. He is in charge of a voucher program, Blanton said, probably the toughest issue in Colorado, and maybe one of the toughest in the country in a very effluent district. Hes out there with all these pro voucher and anti-voucher programs, to be honest, and taken it down the middle of the road, he said. He was the executive director of schools from Colorado Springs District 11 from July 2007 to September 2010. He was a principal at Adams County School District 50 Westminster, Colo., August 2003 to June 2007. Some board members expressed concern about his involvement with the voucher program and said his resume was difficult to follow. When Blanton asked Cutter what he could improve on, Cutter said he needs to learn to delegate better. Hes learned to be more hands-off after he delegates but he does follow up better, he said. Asked by Tampa Bay Newspapers why he was attracted to the Pinellas County job, Cutter said as with any leader, I have passions and core beliefs. Pinellas County Schools has a long tradition of excellence. There is a clear focus on meeting the needs of every student, a commitment to lifelong education exemplified by the adult learner programs, and an appreciation for the great importance teachers have in educating our students. I believe in kids, I believe people, and I believe in partnerships that improve learning opportunities. I am coming to PCS in the hopes that my passions match the districts priorities as well in person as they do on paper. SCHOOL CHIEF, from page 1A Michael Grego Constance Jones Christian CutterInitially, the track cost us $5 a foot, Jamison said. That essentially came out to about $12,000, he said. The initial cost of building the railroad was funded out of pocket by the five founders of the railroad. After Largo Central Park construction began, the railroad was removed and all the track was stacked up by the then Largo Feed Store while city officials were deciding whether the railroad would become part of the park. After a lot of feedback from citizens, officials decided that the railroad was a feature that should be integrated into the design of the park. Construction began in 1995, but the group had to sell off a number of assets of railroad to raise money to finish the work. The railroad opened in 1995 under great fanfare with the mayor and the commissioners and everybody, Jamison said. The railroad has been successfully operated ever since, he said, and a bond developed between the city and the railroad group. People that come here and visit this from other parts and other railroads all over the country cannot believe the cooperation that the railroad and the city share, he said. When it first began operating, the railroad had a ridership over the weekend of about 500 people. Because of the cooperation from the city, the railroad group was able to build a tunnel, a loading platform behind the station, and a bridge across the pond and other improvements. In 2005 the railroad was approaching 15 years old and everything was falling apart, Jamison said. The price of track escalated to $10 to $12 a foot. The club was left with donations from the public to rebuild the railroad, and it became apparent that it would be short of funds. The most important thing in operating the Largo Central Railroad is the safety of the people riding the railroad, Jamison. Countless hours were spent by the club keeping the railroad running, such as replacing rail and ties. When he became president in 2007, Jamison said, it became apparent that the railroad would need to be replaced almost in its entirety, he said, at a considerable cost since the main line was 6,000 feet long. City officials met with the club to determine what could be done to raise money. After much soul-searching and looking at our bills and so forth, we came up with if the city could advance us on a yearly basis, $21,500, we would be able to update the railroad, update the rolling stock, update the locomotives and keep the railroad running for the people of the city of Largo, Jamison said. A railroad that had become a tremendously popular feature of the park. The commission agreed to the allocation, he said, and ever since then the club has been receiving $21,500. Over the past five years, we have been able to replace about 80 percent of the track, weve been able to replace 75 percent of the riding cars, we have been able to update some of our locomotives, he said. A couple of locomotives have been acquired at a cost of about $15,000 to $20,000 each. State officials had deemed the railroad to be an educational facility and as such it is exempt from amusement codes. That excludes the railroad from having to be fenced and keeps insurance costs down from $45,000 a year to $4,500 a year. Harper was on the commission when it first voted to offer financial assistance. He recalled the vote was 7-0. Everyone was in favor of this tremendous attraction in Central Park, Harper said. Within a few weeks of that vote my oldest son, his wife and one year old son Mike came in from Fort Lauderdale for the weekend. We all went to the park to ride the trains. Chuck held Mike and off we went on Mikes first train adventure. Ill bet we had not gone 100 feet when Mike started crying. They stopped the train. The engineer came back to Mike, leaned over and said hello to Mike. He stopped crying, started laughing and had the greatest of times. We rode the trains many more times that day, Harper said. We now have five grandkids and four have ridden the rails, all having the best of times. RAILROAD, from page 1ACity considers cracking down on vagrantsCLEARWATER One downside of living in a tourist town is that the sunshine, beaches and other amenities that attract tourists also attract vagrants. At its July 19 meeting, the City Council will consider three measures designed to help the city deal with its homeless problem. Aggressive panhandlers who dart into traffic to solicit money from motorists not only endanger themselves, but also are a menace to others, the council believes. Clearwater already has an ordinance prohibiting such tactics, but first-offenders usually receive a warning, and the maximum punishment under the current ordinance is a fine. If the council approves this measure, such dangerous begging will be moved to Chapter 21 of the Code of Ordinances, which allows repeat offenders to be jailed for up to 60 days. Just because a person is arrested doesnt mean that he will automatically get 60 days in jail, City Attorney Pam Akin told the council at its July 16 work session. The amount of jail time will be decided by the judge. If passed, the change would make soliciting on publicly owned streets, parking garages or parking lots an offense punishable by a fine, imprisonment or both. There are numerous and diverse methods of soliciting available in the City of Clearwater that provides ample alternatives to street solicitations, including soliciting pedestrians on the sidewalk, canvassing door-to-door, telephoning or e-mailing individuals or direct mailing, said a staff memo to the council. Therefore, street soliciting is not only dangerous; its unnecessary. The improvement of the downtown, the East Gateway District and Clearwater Beach has been a high priority in the citys plan to expand the economic base of the city by attracting new investment and patrons to the area, another staff memo said. The downtown is projected to attract additional tourists and visitors as redevelopment continues. The East Gateway District is one of the designated redevelopment areas of the city and is at a transformative point to change the trajectory of the economy and improve the quality of life for current and future residents and businesses. Clearwater Beach has an economic impact of more than $1 billion and is projected to increase its impact as redevelopment of the beach continues to occur. In addition, the city spends approximately $602,000 a year on special events. With that much money at stake, the last thing the city wants is to have visitors experience spoiled by having to step over homeless people sitting or sleeping on the sidewalk. Therefore, a second change suggested by a consultant hired by the city is to ban people from sitting or lying on sidewalks or other public rights-of-way between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. But there are numerous exemptions. People would be allowed to sit or lie down on a park or beach bench, if they have a medical emergency, in a wheelchair or baby carriage, while watching or participating in an event, while eating at a sidewalk caf, or while taking part in a sit-in or similar demonstration. The third suggested change would prohibit homeless people from living in a tent, cardboard box or other temporary shelter on public property unless authorized to do so by the citys Parks and Recreation Department. First-offenders would be told to move on, and their name would be entered into a police database. Secondoffenders would be driven to a homeless shelter by a police officer. Only on the third and subsequent offenses would offenders face a fine, jail or both. Lester R. DaileyUphill battle doomed Biltmore CRABELLEAIR It was standing room only at Belleair Town Hall July 17 as the Town Commission met to discuss the latest developments in the ongoing saga of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. This time the issue was the withdrawal of the request that the hotel property be designated a Community Redevelopment Area. The prospective new owners of the hotel wanted the CRA to be able to get tax money to help them finance the refurbishment of the property. But after the towns Finance Board failed to support the request, the new owners withdrew it. In a letter to the commission, Richard Heisenbottle, the leader of the group intending to purchase the property, said it was apparent that the citizens and committee members just didnt understand the proposal. We faced similar concerns and misunderstandings the previous week when the matter came before the Pinellas County Commission, he wrote. It seems that few are listening and that this will be an uphill battle all the way. Later in the meeting however Clearwater consultant Ed Hooper, speaking on behalf of Heisenbottle and his group, said the real reason for the withdrawal of the CRA request was because the new owners were convinced the county commission would have never passed the request for the CRA. The reality is the county commission does not grant CRAs to non-downtown areas, and frown upon CRAs lasting longer than 10 years, said Hooper. Our request was for up to 40 years. We are convinced they would have denied it. Now, they want an historical property tax exemption for 10 years. The complication with that is Belleair only grants such exemptions for residential properties, not commercial properties. The prospective owners have asked that the matter be discussed at the Aug. 7 commission meeting. Mayor Gary Katica, impatience evident in his voice, suggested the entire issue has gone on far too long. I have sat here for 12 years and in that time we have had to cut staff and raise taxes and we have been carrying that hotel, he said. There are five or 10 houses in Belleair that pay more taxes than the hotel. The hotel might not be done until 2015; can we afford to carry it when we dont know if well have anything in the end? The mayor also wanted to make sure that the Finance Board had an opportunity to look over the proposed tax exemption before the commission dealt with it. Town Manager Micah Maxwell indicated that would be arranged, but with a September deadline looming for the new owners, time will be tight. Katica replied, Well do it at our pace. Several residents from both sides of the issue spoke, some urging the commission to act quickly, others suggesting that due diligence be taken before any decisions are made. Underlying the entire discussion was the fact that the owners had not produced their financial information or outlined specifically how they intended to finance the $200 million project. Time and time again Katica and Commissioner Kevin Piccarreto referred to the lack of compliance by the new owners when asked to produce their financials. To consultant Hooper Katica said, Show us the numbers! To which Hooper replied; Theyre coming, theyre coming. It appears the finance board will have to hold a special meeting to deal with the issue and it is unlikely the commission will be able to deal with it before their Aug. 21 meeting. Brian Goff Around Pinellas Around Pinellas Citizens at a meeting on community streets July 19 asked for bicycle paths and other improvements to be built.was dropped due to funding issues, Yauch said. When we reconstruct a road, our standard is to have bike lanes in it, but reconstruction would include drainage ditches, curb and gutter. Normally there would be bicycle lanes if we reconstructed, but I dont see this being reconstructed in the near future, he said. Among other improvements suggested at the July 19 meeting were bicycle lanes on East Bay and West Bay; bicycle lanes on Eighth Avenue to the Pinellas Trail; pedestrian crossovers, such as the intersection of Missouri Avenue, Seminole Boulevard and East and West Bay drives; and Belleair Road to the Pinellas Trail. Some residents who live in the area of Hamlin Boulevard area complained about lack of transportation and lighting and bus stops. In the last phase consultants are going to prioritize the improvements and develop costs estimates for them. They will create a phasing and implementation schedule. We are going to take that to another level and actually move forward and do a feasibility study of the top five projects, Sewell said. The 25-year phasing plan will be incorporated into polices and update of city codes and projects. Prior to the meeting the city had received about 200 responses to a survey regarding enhancements to the citys transportation network. Citizens who would still like to share their ideas can take the online survey at Largo.com/multimodal until July 27. City officials have developed a mobility campaign called Moving Largo to promote various transportation initiatives, such as community streets plan, that are planned or under way. MOVING LARGO, from page 1APhoto by TOM GERMOND
By SUZETTE PORTERTwo men, both with on-thejob experience as Pinellas County sheriff, want Republican voters to make them their candidate for the Nov. 2 general election. Incumbent Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, 50, and former Sheriff Everett Rice, 67, each say they are best qualified to serve and protect. The final day for registered Republicans to make their choice is Tuesday, Aug. 14. Early voting is scheduled from Aug. 4-11 at any Supervisor of Elections office. Mail ballots can be requested by calling 464-VOTE (8683) or visit www.votepinellas.com.About the candidatesGualtieri was appointed to the office of sheriff in 2011 by Gov. Rick Scott after former Sheriff Jim Coats resigned early to take care of his wife, who has breast cancer. The Aug. 14 primary marks Gualtieris first time in the political fray. Rice is an old hand when it comes to elections. He was elected to the office of sheriff four times and served from 1988 to 2004. He also served one term in the Florida House of Representatives from 2005 to 2006. Both say their time on the job makes them best qualified to serve. They agreed to answer several questions submitted by Tampa Bay Newspapers about their qualifications and other topics.QualificationsGualtieri began his career with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office 30 years ago working in the jail. He then served as a Dunedin Police officer before returning to the Sheriffs Office as a patrol deputy. I worked throughout the Sheriffs Office for approximately 15 years before leaving to attend Stetson University College of Law, he said. After graduating from law school, I practiced civil litigation in Tampa. In 2006, Sheriff Jim Coats asked me to return to the Sheriffs Office as its general counsel. Sheriff Coats then appointed me as his chief deputy (second in command) where I was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Sheriffs Office as well as overseeing the delivery of legal services to the agency. Rice began his career as deputy and then worked as a detective before a series of promotions moved him up the ranks to sergeant, lieutenant, captain and finally chief of detectives. I was elected by the voters by a two to one margin on a reform platform, Rice said. I cleaned up the office and turned it into a model agency known for its professionalism and advancements in technology. I consolidated six police departments into the sheriffs office thereby saving local taxpayers tens of millions of dollars. Rice said he has held all of the leadership positions in the Florida Sheriffs Association, including president and legislative chair. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the FBI National Executive Institute and the FDLE Chief Executive Institute. While in Tallahassee, Rice authored the Stop Turning Out Prisoners (STOP) bill so that now convicts must serve 85 percent of their sentences. The crime rate has been going down ever since STOP was passed by the legislator, Rice said. As a state legislator I co-sponsored the Jessica Lunsford Act making Florida the toughest state on sexual predators. The men were asked to name one thing that makes them more qualified than their opponent. Current experience and successfully managing our budget challenges, while reducing crime makes me more qualified than my opponent, Gualtieri said. During the last four years of the economic downturn we reduced the Sheriffs General Fund budget by $108 million and eliminated 616 positions, including 167 law enforcement deputies. At the same time, we reduced crime, in fact, crime is down 12 percent in our service area during the last three years and arrests are up 28 percent. Pinellas County is safe and the Sheriffs Office is moving in the right direction. Rice points to a proven track record of elected leadership and integrity.None of my opponents were ever promoted to any permanent rank at the sheriffs office nor elected to any office, he said. The man who wins the Aug. 14 election will face Democrat Scott Swope and write-in candidate Greg Pound. The next question asks, simply, why run for public office. I am running for sheriff because I care about our community and I want to keep Pinellas County a safe place to live and work. I love my job and care deeply about our community, Gualtieri said. Rices answer was more complicated. When then Sheriff Jim Coats admitted last year that he had a plan of succession to withdraw early as sheriff and have his deputy appointed sheriff by the governor, it angered a lot of people and left a real uncertainty as to the future leadership in the sheriffs office, Rice said. Such gaming the system to remove the voters from the selection process was disrespectful of both the voters and the office of sheriff. I received hundreds of calls to return as sheriff.If elected, I would The men were asked what they hoped to accomplish as Pinellas County sheriff. The most significant thing I want to accomplish is to continue operating the Sheriffs Office in a cost-efficient and effective manner, Gualtieri said. First and foremost I want to ensure we keep the county safe by continuing to reduce crime. We also need to effectively manage the jail population and maintain jail diversion programs that save taxpayer money. Rice said simply, Restore morale and the professional reputation of the Sheriffs Office. Gualtieri said the biggest challenge is dealing with a continually shrinking budget. The projected county general fund for next year is another $24 million. Against the backdrop of what we have already cut, that is a daunting number, he said. Rice said finding a way to give the employees a raise, something that hasnt happened in years would pose the biggest challenge. The candidates were asked a couple of what-if questions. The first, If you had the power to change one thing about the sheriffs office, with nothing to stand in your way, what would you change? If I could do one thing with nothing standing in the way it would be to give our 2,700 employees a raise, Gualtieri said. They are hurting as they have not had a wage increase in five years and with the cost of living going up and their net paychecks going down (due to pension contributions and increased health insurance costs), they are finding it very difficult to make ends meet.I think my leadership style is very different from the current administration. I would allow the supervisors to do their job without micro-managing them, Rice said. So, I would change the way the office is managed to restore a feeling of worth in the employees. The last question, what would you do with your life if you dont win the election? Rice said he would probably continue to practice law. Gualtieri said he didnt know. (Its) not something I think about. I know I have lots of options and I will give it some thought if that happens, he said.Personal informationGualtieris hometown is Syracuse, N.Y.

The next workshop is Thursday, July 26, 6 to 7 p.m., at the Palm Harbor Community Center, 1500 16th St. PSTA staff will be on hand to speak with the public and answer questions about the new services, which will feature 16-person mini-buses operating along regularly scheduled routes. In addition to the normal operation, riders will be able to contact PSTA in advance to have these new Connector Route buses pick them up and drop them off up to three-quarters of a mile from the normal route. The buses will then connect riders with numerous destinations including other PSTA, HART (Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority) and PCPT (Pasco County Public Transit) services. Citizens who are unable to attend public workshops can still give their input by filling out a short questionnaire online at www.PSTA.net. (Look for the Connector Outreach Survey box on the right side of the page.) PSTA service planners will then use the information from the surveys and workshops to develop the most efficient routing, destinations and operating times as requested by the public.

Thanks to a decrease in the states Medicaid bill, LaSala has lowered the amount the millage rate needs to increase to balance next years budget. LaSala included a quarter mill increase to provide a revenue source for the states latest unfunded mandate in his budget proposal presented July 10. He told commissioners July 17 that the state had lowered its estimated bill to the county by almost $10 million. He now recommends a millage rate increase of only .2199. The meeting started late, about 40 minutes after the advertised time, and LaSala got right to business, going over errors and typographical mistakes in budget documents released July 10. He corrected the number of full time employees for the coming year. He said the numbers in the original budget document contained full time, part time and temporary employees. He attributed the error to new software being used and typographical errors. Commissioners questioned the original numbers that showed a net increase of 44 employees. Latest projections show 17 new positions in 2013. LaSala addressed questions about savings from efficiency initiatives put into place over the past couple of years. He said benefits from the efficiencies had been factored into the fiscal year 2013 budget, which has 0.8 percent, or $3.4 million, less allocated to operating expenses for non-enterprise departments under the county administrator. Staff did an admirable job taking a wire brush to the operating budget, LaSala said. LaSala said savings were attained despite increases in expenditures, including a 6 percent in the FRS contribution, 10 percent for health insurance, 3 percent for fuel, 5 percent for electricity and 1.3 percent for other non-personnel expenditures. LaSala explained that the overall increase in the general fund budget was due to a 16.8 percent in-County officials amend budget, proposed millage ratecrease in spending for capital projects, which will be paid for with an interdepartmental loan.Medicaid issueThe true cost of Medicaid continues to be an unknown. Health and Human Services staff is analyzing the numbers, trying to confirm the backlog bills. LaSala said he was impressed by the work done by staff and the collaborative effort with the state. He also is pleased that the state found its initial estimates (of what is owed) in excess. Gwendolyn Warren, bureau director for Pinellas County Health and Human Services, said additional work was scheduled during the first three weeks of August to get a better handle on the numbers. Recent events are definitely in our favor as the state has agreed to review its process, she said. Some commissioners seemed willing to consider a millage rate increase to fund the Medicaid bill, if the increase was tied to the Medicaid bill only, allowing the rate to go down over time. LaSala said the increase could be tied to a specific purpose. Well evaluate (millage rates) next year and year to year, he said. There are a lot of unknowns for next year. Commissioner Norm Roche said it was difficult to make decisions about Medicaid costs today when the implementation of the universal health care could reverse everything. He suggested any millage increase tied to Medicaid costs include a sunset date. Interim Budget Director Bill Berger said a millage increase tied to a specific purpose could be done the same as the Stabilization Level Account, which would allow revenue to be used to pay for Medicaid and any leftover to go into a reserve account. LaSala pointed out that the Medicaid increase was two part. First, is the higher bill for past years (backlog), and second is an increase in costs to the county going forward due to a change in the funding formula. Warren said the most significant increase was due to more people using Medicaid and the rising costs of health services, which most likely wont change in the near future. Welch said he would support a millage rate increase to pay for the cost shift from the state. This shift is the responsibility of the state, he said. I support a millage increase for a specific purpose for a specific time. Assistant County Administrator Carl Harness said the commission has until Sept. 1 to make a decision as to accepting the backlog bill as is and taking a 15 percent discount. He said staff would have a better estimate of costs at that time. Bostock expressed concerns about passing the states bill to the county on to the residents. Welch said it was getting difficult for the countys budget to continue to absorb additional costs, especially unfunded mandates. This will wipe out all weve done to save, he said. Tell them the bill is coming from Tallahassee. Its not fair to cut more of our services in this time of need. Bostock disagreed, saying the more people we give free health to will influence the amount of money government will need in future budgets. Were likely going to have to deal with an increase anyway, she said. Its a basic philosophy difference of who pays. She said the county also was proposing a millage rate increase for EMS.

This goes to our households. Welch continued to argue that the state caused the problem by balancing its budget by passing additional costs to the county. At the end of the day, it is all the same taxpayers, he said. LaSala passed out a draft letter already given to commissioners he had met with previously, so everyone could see what staff proposed to send out with the Truth in Millage statements. He said a decision was needed before June 27 to meet the printers deadline. Bostock and Commissioner Neil Brickfield were not in support of the letter. Brickfield said he was not in favor of a millage rate increase. Roche said he could not support an increase until certain questions were answered, including whether the tax increase could sunset and a discussion of the impact of universal health care, which starts in 2014.Questions and answersLaSala said he would present calculations about the proposed EMS millage rate increase, including the number that would require a unanimous vote versus a majority vote or a two-thirds vote. Discussion moved to the $843,000 in unfunded requests for homeless services. Commissioners agreed to discuss it in detail on Tuesday, July 31, in lieu of a meeting scheduled on July 26, so Commissioner John Morroni can attend. Morroni is scheduled to be at the Moffitt Cancer Center on July 26-27. Commissioners were asked to get budget questions to staff in advance of that meeting. The commission has until Aug. 3 to approve a tentative millage rate. LaSala said commissioners could go ahead and approve the upside figures then take all the time they needed to get answers to questions before setting the final millage in September. After the tentative millage is set, it cannot be increased, but it can be lowered. LaSala said with limited staff, it could take some time to get answers to all the questions. What are you going to question, asked Commissioner Susan Latvala. This is basically the same budget as last year. Brickfield said he didnt know what questions he might have. I havent finished reading it (budget documents), he said. I assume there is no problem with commissioners asking questions. Commissioner Karen Seel said she had a number of questions, such as why the budget increased for animal services, why there is no money budgeted for community development and where the decreases came from in the sheriffs final budget. Commissioners also requested that budget documents be placed on the website so they can be accessed from home and by the public. Line item details are only available on the countys internal network. After a 30-minute break, commissioners continued a sometimes confrontation discussion about how to fund the needs of the homeless and the requested $500,000 for Pinellas Hope, $300,000 for homeless outreach and $40,000 for Turning Point. Staff was directed to look for ways to fund the request from the H&HS budget. Welch prefers using money from the Service Stabilization fund. I want it on the record, he said. Im not convinced there is $840,000 in H&HS we can pull from and not do harm. LaSala asked commissioners to replace the draft letter he passed out during the morning with a new draft before he again tried to get consensus on whether the commission would like to send an explanation for the millage rate increase out with TRIM notices. The majority, 4-3, agreed to consider a letter with a final decision to be made before the printers deadline.DOH plans temporary closure of Clearwater centerCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Health Departments Clearwater center closed for renovations Wednesday, July 25.

Torres email@example.com General Editorial firstname.lastname@example.orgCirculation: L. Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Voters should have their say Theres a movement in Pinellas toward term limits for county commissioners. Its an idea not without merit. But, it also could lead us down a path filled with good intentions and unforeseen consequences that ultimately could do more harm than good. Is it worth the risk? Why not continue to let the people decide when an elected official is no longer fit to serve by casting their ballots on Election Day. Term limits make sure that fresh ideas circulate through government on a regular basis. They guard against the entrenchment of the good-old-boy system. They can serve a purpose. Term limits also force good leaders to step down even if theyre doing a great job. They remove people with the experience, leaving the newly elected at the mercy of the incumbents, staff and others to provide on-the-job training. Institutions of higher learning dont offer degrees in Pinellas County government. Taxpayers cant afford to set up a school for new commissioners to take crash courses on the intricacies of running this unique county. Who makes sure that lessons learned arent lost in the shuffle as those with the knowledge of whats come before are replaced with those who must learn anew? What happens to continuity? Does the commission rely on staff to remember the past? What happens if long-time employees leave, as has happened recently due to budget cuts? What stops the mistakes of the past from becoming the mistakes of the newly elected? We concede that the same group should not hold the power for any government body into perpetuity. But if changes are going to be made and term limits become part of the county charter, someone needs to come up with a plan for a smooth transition. In general, most elected officials would probably say it takes at least a year just to get a feel for the job, the routine and the process. Just about the time they start to get their rhythm, they know where to look and who to ask, it is election time. Responsibilities of county government are vast and varied. The budget involves numbers bigger than those everyday citizens will ever encounter with complexities that challenge staffs best financial minds. There are legalities, federal rules, state rules, local rules and agreements with municipalities and a host of other entities. There are promises to be kept and ongoing work to be done. And the challenges of tomorrow that no one can predict. Sometimes decisions have to be made quickly. Theres no time to hire a consultant or spend weeks in study before the vote. The job is not something just anybody can do. And too many with the ability dont want to be an elected official, a servant of the people. The pay is much better in the private sector, although benefits for elected officials arent bad. Public scrutiny is rigid. Your personal life is gone. Everything you do and say or dont do or say is up for review. Four sitting commissioners would soon be ineligible to serve if term limits were enacted. They wouldnt necessarily be leaving the job because the people they represent want them to go. Who knows if there would be anyone willing to step up to serve in his or her place? Commissioner Karen Seel has been on the commission the longest. She ran without opposition for the Nov. 4 election. She will serve another term. No one stepped up to take her place. There was no huge public outcry because she is staying. The people she serves seem happy. Should term limits supersede the peoples choice? Commissioner Susan Latvala and John Morroni were up for election two years ago. Morroni was unopposed. Latvala defeated her challenger. The people had an opportunity to oust either one of them, but they did not. Should term limits take the place of the ballot box? Commissioner Ken Welch, the last of the long-time commissioners, is being challenged for the Democratic nominee to represent District 7. His challenger has joined with two others to file a lawsuit asking the courts to uphold voter opinion from a 1996 election in favor of term limits and impose term limits on the sitting commission, meaning only three would be eligible to serve. One of the three is on his first term and would most likely admit that while hes learned much, hes still not yet an old hand at the job. The other two that still would be eligible to serve are being challenged in November. Three of four commissioners are up for election this year. Two are just finishing their first term and one is running for his fourth. The people will decide who stays and goes. Why do we need term limits?LETTERS EDITORIALFlag flap handled wellEditor: My compliments are extended to Seminole City Manager Frank Edmunds and Fire Chief George Bessler on their handling of the flag on fire truck flap that unfortunately caught national attention last week. The dust-up was never about to fly or not to fly the American flag on our fire equipment. It was always about proper placement of the flag per regulations stated in the U.S. Flag Code. A flag hanging out a fire truck window similar to a Go Bucs pennant, or from the ladder of a ladder truck, is not appropriate or respectful. Months ago the Seminole Fire Squad was asked to submit a proposal for flags on trucks, listing the number of flags needed, the cost, type of the brackets, etc. Such a proposal was never received. It appears, however, that one or more rogue firefighters took it upon themselves to fly a flag inappropriately, and a citizen reported that the flag was not displayed appropriately on the truck. Since the issue blew up, a recommendation has been received for placement of flags on all Seminole fire trucks, and authorization has been given to anchor an American flag on the right front bumper, per the U.S. Code, on all Seminole fire engines. The installation of these flags began last Thursday. I serve with at least three military veterans (Mayor Jimmy Johnson, and Councilors Bob Matthews and Jim Quinn) on the Seminole City Council, and with others who cherish and protect the American flag. As a daughter of a World War II Navy veteran, the wife of a Vietnam veteran, a member of the Seminole VFW-A, and as a USFSP instructor who instructs flag etiquette in my political science courses, I can assure residents of Seminole there is no lack of patriotism within our city government and throughout our city neighborhoods. So perhaps the moral of the story is for us all to refresh our knowledge of the proper display of the American flag, whether on a fire truck, your front porch, your flagpole, or the proper place to wear a flag lapel pin. Out of respect for Americans who served their country and gave their all, and out of respect to our veterans and first responders, and to all Americans, lets wave our flag correctly and per proper flag regulations. Google Flag Code. Leslie Waters Vice Mayor SeminoleUpset about flag decisionEditor: Tell me its not true. The fire department is not allowed to fly the American flag on the fire department vehicles for reasons of sensitivity? What flag has Seminole decided to fly since they are no longer proud to be American? Robert Bailey Capt. USMC (Ret.) Lebanon, Mo. All you need to know about zombiesIt usually takes me six months to catch up with a fad. The latest one Im lagging behind on is zombies. A friend advises me that I cannot pretend to be with it in our society unless Im plugged in to the zombie culture. So here goes. What is a zombie? Ive known a few. They were ostensibly alive they walked and talked, but in fact they were brain dead. One was the master at arms of the Navy ship I served on. Another was a college professor. I once dated a female zombie, but she left me because I bored her. Several of our current Congress members (from both parties) are said to be zombies. Many TV personalities (especially the meteorologists) are zombies, whose voices are actually programmed tapes controlled by off-camera producers, who are also sometimes zombies. The only way to kill a zombie is by beheading it, shooting it in the brain or battering its skull. Keep this in mind next time someone sets you up with a blind date. Take the necessary tools with you in case things turn out badly. The idea of zombies, or the living dead, goes back thousands of years to the epic Sumerian poem, Gilgamesh (not to be confused with Sam Gilgamesh, who played third base for the Chicago Cubs in the 1920s). Since then zombies have been mined by countless authors, filmmakers and even songwriters. The best zombie film ever made was also one of the first. The Night of the Living Dead was produced in 1968 on a shoestring budget. It used mostly amateur actors, and was filmed in the countryside near Butler, Pa. Its director and moving force was George A. Romero, who went on to make other zombie movies, none of them as scary as his original. The first one was released before Hollywoods age-ratings system was installed. The result: most of the movies showings were matinees displayed in front of young children who had not been forewarned of the films bone-chilling content. Many of those kids were so frightened they automatically turned into zombies. (That last statement is not true, but I couldnt resist throwing it in there.) A mainstay of the zombie legend is the zombie apocalypse that is predicted to occur one day soon. Or late. This will happen after most of the people on earth have been turned into zombies, thereby outnumbering the non-zombies, with predictable results. Youve all heard about the Rapture that Christians look forward to? The zombie apocalypse will be called the Rupture, and you dont want to be around when it takes place. My zombie adviser, Andromeda Da Vinci, says no one is sure how the original zombies got that way. One theory is that the zombie virus came from outer space, infected a few people in Mississippi, and then spread into the civilized world. Another suggestion is that all humans are born with the zombie bug inside us. It lies dormant until a zombie sinks his/her teeth into us, activating the bug, something like a new credit card when you phone the number on the reverse side. Andromeda says that zombies are attracted primarily by noise. If thats true, several popular Pinellas County restaurants are in grave danger and dont even know it. Ill believe in zombies only after Dr. Phil interviews one or two of them on his TV program. Im told he has come close a couple of times, but has trouble finding zombies who will actually talk, or weep, or accuse their parents of ruining their lives, which is what most of Dr. Phil guests do. The only thing zombies want to do is eat peoples brains, which are in mighty short supply on most talk shows. Are zombies entitled to collect Social Security payments? Good question. Technically a zombie is not 100 percent dead, and that fact should allow him or her to be covered by Social Security, Medicare and other programs. Of course, zombies seldom apply for food stamps, since most stores dont sell human brain tissue, which is zombies sole source of protein. Heres a scenario for you to consider: A promoter hires a stadium and fills the playing field with zombies, vampires, rejuvenated mummies and werewolves. When the signal is given, all the creatures attack one another. Who do you think would emerge victorious? Please send your opinions to my email address (below), and I will print the results. The person sending in the most thoughtful opinion will be treated to a luncheon with Kim Kardashian, who some people think has more than a trace of zombie in her own genes.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com. Drivers SeatBob Driver Power gets what power wantsAfter a woman in his audience shouts that his rape joke isnt funny, comedian Daniel Tosh says that it would be funny if five men rape her right now, on the spot. Tosh later apologizes but says he has been misquoted. While 12 men at Texas Lackland Air Force Base are suspected of raping at least 31 servicewomen, the Republican vice-chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Texas Rep. Mac Thornberry, says women face no widespread problem of rape there. As dozens of other congressmen clamor for a House investigation, another Republican Texas congressman, Mike Conoway, says political theater wont help. It is certainly true that Tosh has the right to be cruel. It is certainly true that their constituents can give Thornberry and Conoway the boot. But no woman who has been the victim of sexual assault fails to see through Tosh, Thornberry and Conoway. When I was 19, I was sexually attacked by a man on a college campus; several passers-by watched and did nothing that sunny Sunday afternoon. After I pressed charges against my attacker, he stalked me. I moved out of the neighborhood because I feared for my life. Though the attack happened long ago, when I hear a mans heavy footsteps behind me today, I step aside and wait for him to pass. This way, if he strikes, at least I will see him coming. Simply put, I am afraid even when Im occupying a sidewalk. This is a profound example of feeling powerless, but it is nothing when compared to the trauma and fear that women who have been raped endure and have to accommodate in their lives. This sort of fear may be a mans most potent weapon over women, worse than a punch or a gun. Most of Toshs audience, even perhaps the other women, laughed at his rape jokes. The women at Lackland were afraid to complain. These are profound examples of power, wielded without mercy, unconsciously or otherwise. Those of us who believed women had finally gotten through to men about the nature of sexual attack have been nave and foolish. We apparently have to again wage the battle of 30 or 40 years ago that rape isnt about sex but the brutal exercise of force and presumed authority. It seems to be in the air. Perhaps this is a stretch, but the protection of the rights and needs of the vulnerable, like sexual assault victims, is generally no longer in fashion. Each of us is increasingly alone, and power gets what power wants. Elections can be bought by the mighty. A single vote looks to be irrelevant, and the vulnerable are to be kept from voting, period. If youre sick, youre on your own when you need to pay for your care. If you are receiving jobless benefits because youre out of work or food stamps because you need to feed your children, youre a freeloader. If you cant make it on minimum wage, you should get a second job. If youre suffering discrimination at work, you likely will have to fight your battle by yourself. As I said, maybe its a stretch. But this dismissal of rape stands for something: more and more of us are being forced to step off the sidewalk to let someone who has contempt for us pass by.Mary Jo Melone, former columnist with the Tampa Bay Times, is a writer in Tampa.

Rodeghero, D.D.S. $10 040512 Fishing good despite hot weatherThe dog days of summer are upon us. Warm water temperatures and lack of bait in the area has given anglers few options when it comes to a day on the water. Understanding what species of fish arent as bothered by the heat as others will help in making the right choices, whether youre pursuing a fish dinner or fishing for sport. Once again tarpon and sharks are at the top of the list for those wanting to do battle with some true summer giants. Tarpon are becoming more abundant at the Bay bridges and pass bridges at night as well as many deepwater spots throughout Tampa Bay. Nighttime bridge fishing has been very productive recently. Tarpon cruise the shadow lines looking for shad, ladyfish, crabs or shrimp. Anchoring up tide of the shadow line and floating back a live ladyfish right to the edge will produce a strike if the fish are there. Shark fishing has been very productive, whether youre targeting small 3 to 5 foot blacktips or bigger bulls. Set up in deeper water adjacent to shallow flats, areas that are holding schools of fry bait indicated by dipping turns working the surface will be more productive. Fish oily baits on the bottom such as shad, mullet or ladyfish, typically the bigger the bait the bigger the shark. Pompano fishing has been fair to good at times along the Bay bridges as well as pass bridges along the Intracoastal Waterway. Bounce Crazy jigs rigged on a loop knot along with a pink teaser fly along the bottom on the down current side of the pilings. Typically low light hours accompanied with a strong tide are top times to pompano fish. Gag grouper fishing has been steady in the shallower depths; the Skyway Bridge and the shipping channel are great summer time grouper spots. Trolling plugs along the channel edges can be deadly and when fishing the bridge piling its hard to beat a free lined pinfish or a lightly weighted giant threadfin.

By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The development of youth soccer talent in the area took a major leap last week when Gulf Coast United announced a new affiliation with European soccer powerhouse Celtic Football Club of the Scottish Premier League. The deal, which becomes effective Aug. 1, makes GCU an international youth academy affiliate of Celtic FC, which is considered to have one of the best youth soccer academies in the world. We felt it would be an honor to be associated with Celtic FC, said Jimmy McDonald, director of coaching for GCU. We began dialogue in September and now were a member. McDonald said both organizations would blend their soccer cultures and share training programs. GCU is one of four organizations in the United States affiliated with Celtic FC. The others are in New Jersey, Boston and St. Louis. McDonald, along with GCU coaches Matt Risley, Noah Risley and Scott Soucy, toured various youth training academies in the United Kingdom in April 2011 before deciding Celtic FC in Glasgow was the best direction to go for a minimal cost to GCU. The benefits are player development and coaching development, said McDonald. Well be using the same academy drills here and teaching our kids the Celtic Way. He said the Celtic Way is an attacking, creative style of soccer. Three coaches from the Celtic youth academy are in Pinellas County this week to instruct GCU summer camps and teach GCU coaches the Celtic style. We try to do our training sessions like back home, said Celtic coach John McStay. As young players, we work with them on technical things because as they get older its more difficult to learn. McStay, 25, a graduate of the Celtic Academy, is the son of Willie McStay and nephew of Paul McStay, a pair of wellknown former Celtic players who also have made the transition to coaching. Other Celtic coaches in town include 21-year-old Jonathan Burns, son of former Celtic first team coach Tommy Burns, and 25-year-old Stevie Chalmers, the grandson of a Celtic legend by the same name. Burns said the basics passing, movement and shooting are the keys to development within the Celtic system and the younger a player starts, the better off he or she is. You have to get the basics right at a young age, Burns said. Chalmers said the experience with American players has been good. The kids are very enthusiastic, he said. Its has been a very positive experience. Plans call for the Celtic coaches to visit GCU once, possibly twice, per year to conduct camps and clinics with players and coaches. CGU will return the favor as well, sending players and coaches to Celtic clinics in Scotland. Theyre just a world class organization, said Soucy. Its one thing to develop players but another thing to develop coaches too. Thats important, said McStay. You need to set a standard (for players) and (have coaches) continue it. Celtics roots go back a long way to 1888 when the club played its first match. In 1903, it adopted its green and white-hooped shirts, which will be adopted by Celtic FC Florida. Celtic has won the Scottish League championship 43 times, including this past spring. The team has won the Scottish Cup 35 times and Scottish League Cup 14 times. In 1967, Celtic won an unprecedented five titles when it became the first British team to win the European Cup now known as the Champions League. It also won the Scottish League championship, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup and the Glasgow Cup the same year. Celtic also reached the 1970 European Cup final and the 2003 Union of European Football Associations Cup final. The team plays in Celtic Park, a 60,000-seat stadium in Glasgow. GCU was born in 2003 when the Seminole Strikers and the Belleair youth soccer organization merged. It currently has about 750 kids, ages 4 to 18. Games are played at the Seminole Junior Warhawk complex next to Walsingham Park and the Belleair Recreation Center.

Calendar of eventsCommunity 11A Leader, July 26, 2012 Obituaries Florence von Brecht Heuchan (Peach, Petey)On July 12, 2012, after an amazing 101 years on earth, Peach joined her husband, Don, son, Charley, her mother and father, brother, sisters, cousins and friends in Heaven. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 17, 1911, the youngest of Bertha and Charles E. von Brechts four children, she was nicknamed Pete by her brother and best friend, Chick. They were in the very first grade school classes at the newly formed Our Lady Of Lourdes parish. High school was at the Academy of the Sacred Heart known as City House, then graduation from Maryville College in 1932. Summers from 1918 onward were spent on the Lakeshore in Douglas, Michigan, where she was a parishioner at St. Peters Catholic Church. Married to Don in 1938, they had four children, Heather, Buz, Charley and Mary, and celebrated 59 years of marriage before his death. Clearwater became home in 1968, and Belleair 10 years later. Always active, she was a 1,000-hour volunteer at Morton Plant Hospital, a member of the Belleair Garden Club, the Belleair Country Club, and St. Cecelias Church. A life of action was not surprising as she won a trophy for Most Daring Girl Diver at age 8. She went on to win many golf competitions, had two holes-in-one, traveled the world, and managed to get a speeding ticket at age 80. Peach loved her husband, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, taking great pride in their many accomplishments. She was enamored with her many snazzy convertibles, golf, the beach, gin rummy, chess, cribbage, scrabble, the daily jumble, cocktail parties, cigarettes and vodka. Peach was a classy lady who had good taste in clothes, her homes, and her friends. She was practical, thrifty, curious, generous, creative, feisty, and popular. Her opinions were offered freely, solicited or not, and it seems that everybody remembered Peach after meeting her. She was an inspiration to many, young and old. She is survived by three of her children: Heather Foderingham (Deric), Buz Heuchan (Annie), and Mary Compton. Eight grandchildren: Chris Markham, Peter Markham (Sandy), Brecht Heuchan (Hunter), Charlie Heuchan (Jodi), Josh Heuchan (Angie), Anna Loughridge (Paul), Streck Heuchan (Christine), and Heidi Herrick (Dave). Fifteen great-grandchildren: Mimi, Libby, Julianna, Brecht, Caleb, Isaac, Fletcher, Hartley, Hendricks, Ella, Max, Anderson, May, Streck, and Anna Christine. Memorial Masses are planned for a later date at St. Cecelias and St. Peters. The family extends deep gratitude to the staff at Beckett Lake and Woodside Hospice for their exceptionally kind care. Memorial contributions may be made to Xenophon Therapeutic Riding Center, P.O. Box 16, Orinda, CA 94563, or www.xenophontrc.org.

Their amazing career continues to defy many of their contemporaries, as they continue to add new, young fans to their following. Joining Yes is UK prog-rock band Procol Harum. Their debut single, a classically-based piece, A Whiter Shade of Pale, captured the imagination in a way that few singles do and spent a month at the top of the UK charts and became a million-seller.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Step Up: RevolutionGenre: Drama Cast: Ryan Guzman, Kathryn McCormick, Misha Gabriel and Peter Gallagher Director: Scott Speer Rated: PG-13 Step Up: Revolution is the next installment in the worldwide smash Step Up franchise, which sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called The Mob. When a wealthy businessman threatens to develop The Mobs historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.The WatchGenre: Comedy and science fiction Cast: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Will Forte and Billy Crudup Director: Akiva Schaffer Rated: R Four everyday suburban guys come together as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood and the world from total extermination.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Ruby SparksGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Steve Coogan, Elliott Gould, Chris Messina and Deborah Ann Woll Director: Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris Rated: R Calvin (Dano) is a young novelist who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing as well as his romantic life. Finally, he makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him. When Calvin finds Ruby (Kazan), in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person. Killer JoeGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church and Gina Gershon Director: William Friedkin Rated: NC-17 When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie (Juno Temple). Chris finds Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris cant pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. Like from a modern-day, twisted fairy tale, Killer Joe Cooper becomes the prince to Dotties Cinderella. Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, Killer Joe is a garish, provocative black comedy from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin.SacrificeGenre: Drama Cast: Ge You and Wang Xue Qi Director: Kaige Chen Rated: R Written and directed by master filmmaker Chen Kaige and set during the opulent Yuan Dynasty in the 5th century B.C., Sacrifice is the story of a newborn prince whose entire family, the Zhao clan, is wiped out by a rival general who ruthlessly seizes the throne. An ordinary man, the doctor who delivers the baby, gives up everything dearest to him to save the last young survivor in the bloodline of the noble Zhao, and secretly raises the child as his own. But the doctor, played impeccably by acclaimed actor Ge You, has devised his own plot for revenge and makes the coldblooded General, Tu Angu, the boys godfather, allowing the would-be-King to infiltrate the royal palace as a guest. When the boy becomes a man, he must choose between two fathers, while the destiny of a nation rests with his decision.Searching for Sugar ManGenre: Documentary Director: Malik Bendjelloul Rated: PG-13 In the late s, two celebrated producers, who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics, discovered a musician in a Detroit bar.

CLEARWATER Touring in support of his sixth solo album, Lindsey Buckingham will take the stage Monday, Aug. 6, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets start at $59. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. The legendary guitarist, singer/songwriter, Grammy winner, producer and Rock And Roll Hall of Fame member released Seeds We Sow in September 2011. According to record distributor Eagle Rock Entertainment, the album is showcase for his distinctive guitar picking style and instantly recognizable voice. The albums 11 tracks span a broad spectrum from the simple guitar and vocals of the opening title track through the classic rock styling of Thats the Way Love Goes. Buckingham demonstrates more complex arrangement and harmonies in When She Comes Down. Buckingham also covers a little known Rolling Stones track, She Smiled Sweetly, which first appeared on the Stones 1967 album Between The Buttons. This might be the best work Ive ever done, Buckingham said in a press release promoting the album. I think its an excellent representation of what I do. It shows a certain maturity and musicianship and I just feel like I have a lot of tools in my musical vocabulary from which to draw that are again the product of the choices Ive made. Its on my own terms. This is very much from the inside out and I hope I never stop doing that. The artist recorded Seeds We Sow in his home studio in Los Angeles, playing the majority of the instruments himself. He also handled mixing and producing duties. Buckingham is best known for his work as guitarist, male vocalist and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac. The legendary band has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, earning countless awards and selling out venues around the world. Fleetwood Macs contribution to evolution of rock and roll over the last 30 years cant be understated. Buckingham is considered the predominant musical force behind such Mac albums as Rumours and Tusk. Buckinghams first work with Fleetwood Mac resulted in the chart-topping 1977 release Rumours, which featured the Buckingham-written single Go Your Own Way. Rumours has gone on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time. The band followed up in 1979 with Tusk, a critically acclaimed double-album. Buckingham remained a member of the band well into the 1980s, releasing 1982s Mirage and 1987s Tango in the Night. Prior to joining Fleetwood Mac in 1975, Buckingham and then girlfriend Stevie Nicks released Buckingham Nicks on Polydor Records, an album that is now a cult favorite. While still recording and touring with Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham released his first solo album, Law and Order, in 1981. The album included the hit single Trouble. His second solo album, 1984s Go Insane, featured the title track, which reached No. 4 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts. Buckinghams other solo efforts include 1992s Out of the Cradle, 2006s Under the Skin and 2008s Live at the Bass Performance Hall and Gift of Screws. Seeds We Sow is Buckinghams first self-release. The iconic Fleetwood Mac guitarist took a do-it-yourself approach to creating the album. In addition to producing, mixing and performing all the tracks, he also wrote every song. The Capitol Theatre ticket office will open one hour prior to show time. Valet parking is now available for most performances at the historic Capitol Theatre. Call 791-7400.
