Guardians ad litem give voice to neglected children
By JULIANA A. TORRES
CLEARWATER Cathy Larkin-Richards has
played a number of roles in the lives of the children
she represents over the last seven years.
As a guardian ad litem, she is their voice in
court when their parents abuse or neglect them or
when the adults in their lives end up in jail or ad-
dicted to drugs. She makes sure they have cloth-
ing, school books, teddy bears, bicycles and
blankets. She's delivered dozens of birthdays,
Christmases and holidays to their doorsteps.
She makes sure their parents learn how to be-
come better parents, or she finds a close relative
who will do a better job. She's ushered at least four
children through the process of being adopted into
a new family.
She's been called "Aunt Cathy" and "Grandma."
Some children, not understanding the Latin part of
her title, call her their "guardian angel," maybe not
unintentionally. One 8-year-old girl called her
"guardian ad lightning."
'They're just neat kids that bond to us quickly,"
she said. "As a guardian, we're a constant pres-
ence, sometimes the only consistent person in their
life. We help the system provide for the child."
Sometimes, what a child needs most is the per-
sistence of a "squeaky wheel," someone who fights
for their best interest and needs, she said.
Larkin-Richards of Seminole is a full-time volun-
teer with the Guardian ad Litem Program for Flori-
da's Sixth Judicial Circuit Court, which
encompasses Pinellas and Pasco counties. Around
3,000 children are under supervision in the Sixth
Circuit, about 900 in Pasco County and 2,100 in
Pinellas County. They represent 10 percent of all
court-supervised children in the state of Florida,
more children than any other circuit handles.
The court decides the fate of children who are
victims of neglect or abuse. In such cases, both the
mother and father are each represented by a
lawyer, one the state is required to provide if they
can't afford it.
No one is required to speak for the child. So, in
the most difficult or contested cases, a judge will
order a guardian ad litem as an independent voice
on the child's behalf.
"The judges want us on these cases because
they know that they're going to get information
from us, the guardian ad litem, that they wouldn't
get from anyone else," said John Zucker, commu-
nity relations coordinator and five-year volunteer
for the program. "Nationwide studies have proven
that the judges follow our recommendations 80 to
90 percent of the time. If they don't, it's because
the law won't let them."
Children who are represented by a guardian go
through the state courts twice as fast, with half as
many ending up in a foster home, Zucker said.
The problem is, the circuit's 650 guardians can
cover only half of the children in the system,
Guardian Ad Litem Circuit Director Donna Ras-
"We don't have enough resources. We handle the
more serious cases," she said. "Unfortunately, a lot
of the stories are similar."
Often drugs are involved, sometimes physical
abuse. Other times, parents are in and out of their
children's lives or just can't afford to care for them
Guardians do more than represent children in
court. Their job is to get to know the children
through monthly visits and through their own in-
vestigative work. They need to be the eyes and
ears of the state team put together to protect the
children, said Zucker, who hosts weekly orienta-
tions for new guardians.
"Just because a child has fallen into the system,
they should have everything you'd like your chil-
dren to have. What we do is try to maintain that
normalcy for them," he said. "We don't expect the
guardian to spend any of their money. They just
need to see the need, communicate that and we
will work to fill that need."
Zucker calls it the "fairy godparent" part of a
guardian ad litem's role. One of his first cases was
a family of three children whose father had beat
them with a stick and slammed his daughters
against the wall by their hair. After the state re-
moved them from that situation, Zucker learned
that the oldest 13-year-old girl had lost her glasses
and was struggling in school without them.
He called his guardian ad litem case coordina-
tor, who knew where the girl could get an eye
exam and glasses for free.
'Two days later, the young lady had her new
glasses," Zucker said. "It might have taken a
month for the state bureaucracy to accomplish
what we accomplished here in a very short
amount of time."
Later, after the children were placed back with
their mother, Zucker got a call from her, when the
colder months set in. The Guardian Ad Litem
Foundation of Tampa Bay, an associated nonprofit
that raises funds on the program's behalf, gave the
mother $200 so she could buy warmer clothes for
her children that she otherwise couldn't afford.
The cases guardians take on usually last at
least a year and average about 18 months. As a
rule, each case requires six to 10 hours a month.
Guardians try to provide the children they rep-
resent with more than the basic necessities. Chil-
dren removed from an abusive situation often
arrive at their new home with nothing but the
clothes on their back. A simple blanket, which the
guardians keep stocked in their office, can help
create a sense of belonging.
'These children are forced into the system and
they did nothing wrong," Susan Neville, a
guardian ad litem and president of the Guardian
Ad Litem Foundation. "There's no real comfort
level for that child, nothing they can call theirs.
Mom and Dad screwed up, but they get to stay in
the house and it's the child who has to move."
Mike Bailey of Palm Harbor retired as principal
at San Jose Elementary in Dunedin in 2007. His
friends thought he might be crazy for when he
began considering becoming a guardian ad litem,
given the 32 years he spent dealing with children
in the school system.
His pastor had a different perspective.
"Mike, you know, you've been training your
whole life for this calling," Bailey remembered him
Bailey hasn't regretted the decision.
"My heart really is with the kids," he said. "I just
think every kid deserves a chance. A lot of the
times, we are that chance. We jump through the
hoops to make it happen."
Under the threat of state budget cuts, the
guardians in the sixth circuit lobbied every state
legislator whose district covered one of the chil-
dren they represented and asked them to spare
the program. This year, the budget didn't get cut.
However, given the poor economy, the program's
goal of giving every neglected or abused child a
guardian ad litem to represent them is still a los-
Orientations for prospective guardians ad litem
are held every Thursday in the program's fourth-
floor offices of the Pinellas County Criminal Jus-
tice Center, 14250 49th St. The application
process includes an extensive interview, a back-
ground check and training.

Voters consider charter amendment
By SUZETTE PORTER
Voters will decide the fate of an amendment to Pinellas County's
Charter during the Nov. 2 general election.
The amendment, proposed by the 2010 Charter Review Commis-
sion, would increase the time between sessions of future commis-
sions from six to eight years to coincide with the presidential election
cycle when voter turnout is typically higher.
The Charter Review Commission also would be required to hold at
least two public hearings before sending recommendations to the
Board of County Commissioners.
The current charter requires that a commission be convened every
six years to review the operation of county government. The charter
also requires that the new commission be appointed in December
and be organized by the third week in January. The work must be
completed by July 31.
Members of the 2010 commission discussed an ongoing concern
that it often takes four to six weeks for it to take care of housekeep-
ing matters, including electing a chair and vice chair, selecting sup-
port staff and briefings on issues. Oftentimes another month is taken
up with conducting hearings on the issues.
'Thus the charter effectively allows only three to four months of
time to actually examine issues, take testimony, develop consensus

and prepare recommendations," said the review commission's final
report. "All other charters in Florida grant CRC's at least one year to
complete their work."
If voters approve the amendment, future charter review commis-
sion's would be appointed no later than Aug. 1 of the year before the
general election, allowing for more work time.
The 2010 commission was established less than four years after
the last. Voters approved allowing the 2004 commission to remain in
existence through Dec. 1, 2006, to complete its work. Nine of the
original members agreed to serve the extended term.
The 2006 commission recommended an amendment to delay the
appointment of the 2010 commission and change the interval of com-
missions to eight years to coincide with the presidential election. Vot-
ers did not approve the amendment.
Future commissions would be allowed, at their discretion, to stay
in existence through the general election to respond to questions
from the public. The 13-member commission, per charter require-
ments, is comprised of a mix of elected officials and members of the
If voters approve the amendment, the next commission would be
appointed no later than Aug. 1, 2015 and every eight years there-
after. If the commission proposes amendments to the charter, they
would be placed on the 2016 general election

The Customers Have Spoken:
You'll Get a Great Style at a Great Price at Attractions
You don't have to be around Attractions Salon for very
long before a client will offer an opinion. "I really
love this place," said Becky of Seminole. "I never
feel pressured here. Some places are so fast-paced and
crowded. They try to push too many services other than
hair and seem unfocused. It sometimes makes me feel
very uncomfortable. Attractions just does great hair."
Joanne Reeves, owner of Attractions, explains it best.
"We have found that most of our clients primarily come
in for hair services and already have a favorite nail or skin
technician that hlicy are happy \M ith." she said. "For that
reason, we've eliminated other services and put the focus on
what we do best, and that's professional hair cut, color and
styling at prices that are extremely competitive. For example,
our Redken color, cut & style is just $65 everyday, and Men's
shampoo and cuts are only $15. We also have great pricing
on the rest of our hair services, too."
At Attractions, they provide a non-competitive setting.
"You'll find no independent contractors here," Joanne added.
"Attractions has been in existence for over 17 years. Since
purchasing the salon, I've made a lot of positive changes.
Recently, we hired new, professional stylists who are not onlh
Rcdkcrin-raincd, but they're employees of our company-so
our clients never feel pressured when they come here. They

can always choose the stylist they want, at a time that's
convenient for them. Wc want them to feel comfortable."
Regular clients of Attractions know what Joanne means
by comfortable. Not only are walk-ins and last-minute
appointments welcomed, but many of the day spa "converts"
(who have become regulars at Attractions) have learned that
this salon makes their clients feel like family. "They always
offer me a cold bc% crage or a new styling idea," said Kelly
of Largo. ''But what I really like is their great pricing and
the fabulous color and styling work they do on my hair. The
value here is incredible."
"We offer a new trend in Salons that is all about building
a clientele that expects professional quality and expertise
from their stylist at a price that's more affordable," said
Joanne. "We would like to invite everyone to give us a try
and see the difference our attention to hair makes. Bring us
your hair and we'll make you a star-gu% s. too!"
Attractions is located at 10793 Park Blvd. in Seminole
between Lifestyle's and Beef O' Brady's on the northwest
comer of Park Blvd. and Seminole Blvd. They're open
Tuesday through Friday from 9 AM to 8PM and Saturday

SEMINOLE The city's only museum will soon be
relocating to the University of Florida in Gainesville.
The board of directors of the Panama Canal Mu-
seum, 7985 113th St., voted recently to accept a
proposal from the university's Latin American Stud-
ies Department to house the museum's artifacts in
the George A. Smathers Libraries.
Museum director Elizabeth Neily said the move
will be gradual over a 20-month span. The last
items will be out by June 2012.
Neily is the only full-time employee and has been
offered a curator's position in Gainesville. Two part-
time positions will not be retained.
'Their (University of Florida) Latin American Stud-
ies Department contacted us about a year and a
half ago," said Neily. "At the same time we were
looking for ways to sustain the museum."
The museum, which preserves the history of the
American era of the Panama Canal (1904-1999),
also was courted by Tulane University but the board
decided on the Smathers Libraries, Neily said, be-
cause it would be more accessible at UF.
The facility, which uses about 3,500 square feet
on the first floor of an office building on the north-
west corner of the Seminole Mall parking lot, has
struggled financially since it opened.
Admission is free. Revenue for the nonprofit facili-
ty comes from about 750 annual memberships and
donations from the public.
'We decided there just wasn't enough support to
keep the museum running out of this building," said
Neily. 'This (relocating to Gainesville) looked like the
best option for us."
The museum is home to a variety of artifacts,
photographs and books related to the American era
of the Panama Canal.
"People are amazed when they come in," said
Neily. 'We're not huge but we have a lot of quality

The new Seminole Science Fiction Club meets
monthly at the Seminole Community Library and
views a couple of popular science fiction, fantasy,
horror or adventure films, along with a business
The club was formed last year by Patrick
Chouinard and Mark Potere to achieve a number of
'The idea of creating a new organization that
would increase diversity of interest in local science
fiction fandom called us to action," said Chouinard.
"We also wanted to increase the quality and sophis-
tication of Seminole Library movie events. We were
inspired by the idea to create a scholarly and nostal-
gic organization geared to classic and contemporary
science fiction, fantasy and adventure films.
"It seemed fitting that a new organization would
be born to promote the arts in the category of the
aforementioned genres. We wanted to create a last-
ing addition to the Seminole community that would
open to all interested in science fiction."
As a prelude to Halloween weekend the Seminole
Science Fiction Club hosted a day of classic horror
films at the library earlier this week.
The organization has a series of special events
Treasure Island ups
By BOB McCLURE
TREASURE ISLAND After a lengthy discussion,
the City Commission voted unanimously Oct. 19 on
first reading to pass an amended ordinance that
gives the city manager a broader spending thresh-
Under terms of the ordinance, the city manager
will be able to make purchases up to $10,000 but
anything between $8,000 and $10,000 will need
The ordinance exempts the competitive bid pro-
cess for supplies, getting certain services that re-
quire a specific skill or a unique circumstance when
it is not in the city's best interest to bid.
The ordinance also eliminates the stipulation that
the city manager handle all bids for construction
work and maintenance for the city. That responsi-
bility will now be passed on to city staff who are
more familiar with architectural and engineering
services in their respective areas.
Additionally, the ordinance increases the require-
ment for a bid bond. All projects costing $100,000
or more will require a 10 percent bid bond by the
city to the contractor.
A bid bond is issued as part of a bidding process
to guarantee that the winning bidder will undertake
the contract under the terms it bid.
But the biggest amount of the discussion sur-
rounded the topic of whether the city manager
should have his spending power increased $2,000 -
from $8,000 to $10,000.
It was last increased in 1999 from $4,000 to
'What about in five years from now if we have a
different city manager?" asked Commissioner Phil
UNEMPLOYMENT, from page 1A
Translating the numbers to people, Pinellas
County had a labor force of 452,143 in September
with 398,256 employed and 53,887 unemployed. In
August, the county had a labor force of 452,420
with 397,417 employed and 55,003 unemployed.
In September 2009, Pinellas County had a labor
force of 451,197 with 399,593 employed and
The national not seasonally adjusted unemploy-
ment rate for September was 9.2 percent with more
than 14 million unemployed. More than a million
people were unemployed in Florida.
Florida's total nonagricultural employment in
September was just over 7.2 million, representing a
decline of 11,100 jobs, according to the state report.
Florida's annual job growth rate was up 0.4 per-
cent, representing an increase of 27,200 jobs since
September 2009. It is the third consecutive month
the state has shown positive job growth.

'We are also planning another movie day in De-

Chouinard who originally thought of starting a
"Star Wars" fan club before starting the science fic-
tion club said his favorite science fiction movie is
'The Empire Strikes Back."
"It is the best science fiction has to offer," he said.
"It is character-driven, not technology-driven, and it
is based on conflict and relationships not just an
other worldly environment."
Chouinard, who is a published author, said he is
inspired by science fiction. His next book "Lost
Worlds" comes out in March.
"It is based on Atlantis, Lemuria, ancient alien
contact, and also mainstream archaeology," he said.
Chouinard, the club's founder and president, said
others involved in starting the club included Potere,
the club's secretary; Carl Cross, the club's vice pres-
ident; Jo Schmidt, Masi Howard and Hillary
Collins. "Do we give him authority to spend $10,000
without commission approval?"
Collins explained that his concerns had nothing
to do with current city manager Reid Silverboard
but dealt more with the future and the possibility of
a another city manager abusing the spending
"I say we pass the ordinance and let the manager
manage," said Commissioner Alan Bildz. "If he mis-
uses his power, in his own words, we can whack
Mayor Bob Minning agreed.
'There is no apparent abuse of the system," Min-
ning said. 'There is no need to micro-manage. We
manage. We set policy with the budget and we turn
that budget over to the staff."
After more discussion, commissioners decided to
leave the ordinance intact but require commission
approval on amounts between $8,000 and $10,000.
Anything above $10,000 will be required to go
through the competitive bid process.
In other action, the commission:
Passed an ordinance on first reading that ex-
tends a swim zone on Sunset Beach from the 77th
Avenue south to the Blind Pass jetty.
Tabled a resolution to initiate conflict resolution
procedures against the city of St. Petersburg arising
from excessive wastewater treatment surcharges.
Passed a resolution increasing the rental fees of
city facilities. The increases affect the city hall audi-
torium and the community center.
Moved forward on a workshop item that would
amend the contract of Harry Gross of Public Man-
agement and Funding Services Inc. for an additional
$11,250 to provide for administrative services relat-
ed to two EPA grant appropriations.
recession, Florida's workforce partners remain fo-
cused on identifying growth industries and helping
prepare job seekers for current and future opportu-
nities," said Agency for Workforce Innovations Di-
rector Cynthia Lorenzo.
Lorenzo said "encouraging indicators of recovery"
included recent increases in online job postings, as
well as the over-the-year job growth.
Online job postings were up 2.3 percent for
September the fourth consecutive month of gains.
"Since the official end of the recession in June
2009, online job demand in Florida has increased
by more than 67,000 jobs," the report said.
The industries gaining the most jobs continue to
be private education and health services. Job
growth also was reported in professional and busi-
ness services; trade, transportation and utilities;
and leisure and hospitality.
Job losses continue for industries involved in fi-
nancial activities, construction, manufacturing, gov-
ernment and information.

Two arrested for boat thefts
PINELLAS PARK Two local men were arrested
Oct. 21 at a Pinellas Park storage facility in con-
nection with thefts of several boats.
Mark A. Conner, 38, of Treasure Island was ar-
rested for scheme to defraud

sheriffs reports said.

Detectives began investigat-
ing Conner, the owner of Sun-
coast Marine, 8290 Bay Pines
Blvd., St. Petersburg, in Au-

from persons who placed their

business practices were taking
place, the report said. Further
investigation and interviews
revealed that Conner and an

The Sheriffs Strategic Enforcement Section
began surveillance on Conner and his associate,
later identified as Plumstead. The surveillance led
deputies to a storage facility at 10830 Canal St. in
Pinellas Park where both men were seen shrink
wrapping a boat for apparent shipment overseas.
The vessel, a Scout (walk-around), had been re-
ported stolen from Pinellas Park.
On Oct. 21, the men were observed removing
the stolen boat from storage unit E of the storage
facility, and the two were arrested for grand theft.
Detectives then obtained a search warrant for
adjacent storage unit D where they located four
more vessels and four trailers. The vessels were
verified as stolen in Pinellas and Hillsborough
counties. The vessels were a Boston Whaler (cen-
ter console), a Pro Line (center console), a Century
(center console) and a Century (walk-around). All
vessels were between 21-25 feet.
A detective noticed that the Century walk-
around looked similar to one he had seen in a
video on the Internet. The video, showing the ves-
sel being stolen from the victim's residence in
Hillsborough County on Oct. 9, had been posted
on YouTube by the owner, Robert Ashe, in hopes
of finding the vessel or any leads to the suspect.
The video, which can be seen at
www.youtube. com/watch?v=tOsungAwdoc, shows
a suspect hooking the vessel and driving away
Ashe also had reported the theft of the vessel to
the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office. Detec-
tives were able to verify that the 24-foot Century
2900 walk-around found in the storage unit was
the vessel stolen from Ashe's home.
All of the vessels were removed from the storage
unit and impounded by the sheriffs office.
Additional charges are pending. The investiga-

with bonds totaling $77,000. Plumstead also re-

According to the report from the Sheriffs Office,
the attack occurred at about 2 a.m. on Oct. 23 in
front of a private residence located at 8971 Semi-
The suspects identified as Kodi Cool, 17, of St.
Petersburg and Timothy Valentine, 23, of Pinellas
Park were walking north on Seminole Boulevard
when they passed by the victims' residence. The
suspects allegedly made comments toward the vic-
tims identified as Allen McGuiness, 52, and James
Benevento, 36. Some words were exchanged and
the suspects continued on, the report said.
A short time later, the suspects returned to the
victims' residence at which time more words were
exchanged. The victims asked the suspects to
leave. The suspects then reportedly attacked the
victims at which time a fight ensued. The suspects
then got into a vehicle occupied by two women,
who witnessed the fight.
According to deputies, the women dropped off
the suspects at the Leisure World Mobile Home
Park in Pinellas Park and called police as soon as
they felt it was safe to do so.
Deputies responded to the scene. McGuiness
was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for
treatment of life-threatening injuries. He suffered
injuries to his head. Benevento was transported to
Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of nonlife-
threatening injuries with a cut to his hand.
The suspects were subsequently arrested at the
mobile home park without further incident. Cool
was arrested for two-counts felony aggravated bat-
tery and transported to the Pinellas Juvenile As-
sessment Center. Valentine was arrested for two
counts aggravated battery and transported to the
Pinellas County Jail.

scene. The investigation is continuing, pending
autopsy and toxicology results.

tacts for Wood should contact Detective Dave Di-

FACT OR FICTION: BLEEDING GUMS ARE NORMAL?
Fiction! If your skin bled every time you bathed or if your scalp
bled every time you brushed your hair wouldn't you go directly to
your medical doctor? Gum disease is not a minor infection. The
amount of tissue in the oral cavity is equivalent to the skin on
your arm that extends from the wrist to the elbow. If this area
was red, swollen and bleeding wouldn't you visit your doctor? The
fact is, bleeding gums is one of the leading signs of periodontal
disease. Other signs include red, swollen or tender gums,
persistent bad breath, sores in your mouth, loose or separating
teeth, receding gums, teeth that seem to be getting longer and
changes in the way your teeth come together when you bite.
There is rarely pain associated with gum disease until the disease
reaches the advanced stages.
Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that
affects the gum tissue and supporting structures of the teeth. If
left untreated, this can lead to tooth loss. In addition, research
studies indicate gum disease contributes to diabetes,
cardiovascular diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, preterm or low
birth weight babies and lung disorders such as pneumonia.
GUM DISEASE AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Bacteria growing in the mouth of a person with gum disease
produce toxins that trigger inflammation. These bacteria also
enter the blood stream, attaching to fatty plaques in the arteries
and contribute to clot formation that may lead to a heart attack
and/or stroke. Researchers have found that people with
periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from
coronary artery disease as those without periodontal disease.
GUM DISEASE AND DIABETES
People with diabetes are more likely to have periodontal disease
than people without diabetes because diabetics are more
susceptible to contracting infections. Severe periodontal disease
can increase blood sugar, contributing to increased periods of
time when the body functions with high blood sugar. This causes
an increased risk of diabetic complications. Diabetics who have
gum disease should seek treatment to eliminate the gum disease.
www.perio. org/consumer/mbc. diabetes.htm
GUM DISEASE AND RESPIRATORY DISEASE
Bacterial respiratory infections are acquired through aspiration
(inhaling) bacteria in the form of droplets from the mouth and
throat into the lungs. This can cause infections or worsen
existing lung conditions. Scientists have found that bacteria that
grow in the mouth can be aspirated into the lungs to cause
respiratory diseases such as pneumonia (especially in people with
GUM DISEASE AND PREGNANCY
Pregnant women who have periodontal disease may be seven
times more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too
small. Studies show that periodontal disease triggers increased
levels of biological fluids that induce labor. Pregnancy can worsen
a woman's existing periodontal condition causing a higher risk of
having a premature baby. Treating periodontal disease in
pregnant woman can greatly improve the odds of her delivering a
full-term, normal weight infant.
In conclusion, research has shown that there is an association
between periodontal disease and other chronic inflammatory
conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory
disease, and complications with pregnancy. Therefore, treating
inflammation may not only help manage periodontal disease but
may also help with the management of other chronic
inflammatory conditions as discussed above.

Making This Right

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA
I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it.
We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to
make things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?
Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked
us if we could serve food to the workers,engineers, scientists, and local residents they
had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only
ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have
kept businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.
Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open
six days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good
time to come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been
tough, we are still cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places
ready to welcome you when you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward
to seeing you.

October feeding fest
continues this week
Unlike last year, the month
of October is definitely living
up to its billing. Resident as
well as migratory fish species
are firing on all cylinders. Last
week's full moon brought swift
moving tides and some out-
Targeting drop-offs on the
edges of the shallow grass flats
around the many small spoil
islands along the Intracoastal
Waterway put us into position
to catch a wide variety of fish.
Spanish mackerel, bluefish,
trout, lady fish and the occa-
sional redfish could all be
caught in the same spot. We
were live chumming with
pilchards and had fish busting
all around the boat. Those
wanting to cast artificial lures
should probe these spoil is-
lands with a top-water plug
during the first couple of
hours in the morning. Then
switch to either a white jig or a
sinking twitch bait.
East winds made for perfect
conditions along our beaches
and near-shore waters. Fish
feeding activity could easily be
spotted upon exiting the pass.
Pelicans and terns hover and
dive into massive pods of bait.
Under all those birds is an all-
out feeding frenzy consisting of
Spanish mackerel and lady
fish eating the bait-fish and
kingfish and spinner sharks
eating the Spanish mackerel
and ladyfish, no doubt an im-
Anchoring and live chum-
ming is by far the best way to
keep you busy for hours on
end. However, trolling small
silver or gold spoons behind a
planer will catch fish, too.
Capturing enough pilchards
for a day's fishing has been
spotty at best, but the rewards
of a full bait-well are well
worth the effort. Target bridge
shadow lines at night, and
after the sun is up look for
pods of pilchards to move to
Until next week, get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be
reached at capt.tyson@hot
mail.com. To get a fish photo
in the paper, send the photo
along with your name, when
and where it was caught to
mail it to Tampa Bay News-
papers, 9911 Seminole
Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Patty Esposito displays a 26-inch gag grouper she reeled in Oct. 17
eight miles off John's Pass in 25 feet of water. On board with Patty
to witness the feat were her husband Mike and two sons, Mike Jr.
and Anthony. The group also combined that day to catch a 22-inch
grouper, a red snapper, two 14-inch flounders and many mackerels.
Seven-year-old Jake Hollingsworth of Madeira Beach caught and
released this 32-inch redfish Oct. 17. He was east of Tierra Verde
using greenbacks, circle hooks and 20-pound braided line. The fish
was one of three he landed that day with Capt. Rob Gorda.

School earns healthy
ST. PETERSBURG Bay Point
Middle School has earned the
Bronze National Recognition
Award from the Alliance for a
Healthier Generation for creat-
ing a healthier environment for
students and staff.
The school earned the recog-
nitions by meeting key stan-
dards set by the program to
improve the school food environ-
ment and increase physical ac-
tivity before, during and after
school for students and staff.
Nearly one in three children
and teens in the United States is
obese or overweight, and in re-
sponse to the epidemic, the Al-
liance for a Healthier
Generation, founded by the
American Heart Association and
the William J. Clinton Founda-
tion, established the Healthy
Schools Program in 2006 to help
schools develop and implement
policies and practices to pro-
mote healthy eating and in-
crease physical activity.
The Healthy Schools Program
is supported by funding from
the Robert Wood Johnson Foun-
dation, which has committed
$28 million to the program.
Schools participating in the
Healthy Schools Program are eli-
gible to earn bronze, silver, gold
or platinum awards based on
their range of healthy eating and
physical activity programs and
The rigorous program criteria
- known as the Healthy Schools
Program Best Practice Frame-

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas recently dedicated its 200th house
That's a remarkable achievement for an organization that was estab-
lished only 25 years ago.
Habitat for Humanity International, formed in 1976, builds houses
for families who meet certain qualifications, including having decent
credit, having financial needs, living in substandard housing, are will-
ing to take homeowner education classes and donating a required
number of volunteer hours or "sweat equity hours" to building houses,
either for themselves or others.
Besides helping to build their own house, homeowner candidates at-
tend classes, such as financial planning and home maintenance, that
helps them to be independent and successful.
Habitat has built more than 350,000 houses around the world, pro-
viding more than 1.75 million people in 3,000 communities with safe
Locally, the organization's efforts are gaining momentum. It took 18
years for Habitat to build its first 100 houses. The next 100 were built
in only seven years.
In addition to building houses, the Pinellas organization has funded
179 homes overseas. To find out about volunteer opportunities, go to
The completion of the 200th home is a tribute to everybody affiliated
with the organization, especially the volunteers who devote time, ener-
gy and sweat to helping make lives better.
Kudos to the Pinellas County Health Department for receiving $4.85
million to spend on new policies to reduce obesity and smoking, in-
crease physical activity and improve nutrition.
The county is one of 10 communities in eight states receiving a
share of $31 million in federal health funds to develop policy changes
in all sectors of the community.
The grant money is part of the federal government's plan to prevent
and control chronic diseases by taking local action.
"It's all about setting new policies and providing healthy alternatives
to people," said Maggie Hall, county health department spokeswoman.
Seven of 10 Americans die each year from problems caused by
chronic diseases, underscoring the need for local action. The health
department is showing that it gets the message and needs to convey it.
Jazz festival disappointing
I have lived in Clearwater for 25 years. I have attended the annual
jazz festival every year since I moved here. In the past I considered the
jazz festivals one of the highlights for the entire year. I enjoy music of
all kinds, and I enjoy going to shows.
Recently I have noticed that the jazz festival isn't as good as it was in
the past. For one thing they started charging people for reserved seat-
ing in the front of the park up by the stage. I preferred the free seating
for everyone that they had in the past. I'm sure they started charging
people so that they could create revenue to attract bigger, more well-
known artists. That is fine but this past year it didn't seem to help be-
cause most of the artists were not that well-known to the general
public, with the exception of Thursday night which included Little Feat
and Dr. John.
The point that I am making is that the artists don't seem to be inter-
ested in coming to this event in recent years. My opinion is that the
crowd of people are all sitting down and not really enjoying the show
as much as in the past. The artists on the stage are working so hard to
entertain the people. As I looked around at the crowd everyone looks
as if they are half asleep. At the end of a song you can hear the artist
on the stage saying things like "is everyone having a good time?" The
response is a few people quietly clapping their hands. That seems to
me to be a rude response to the artists.
My husband and I were standing behind the fence which separated
the paid seating from the nonpaid seating. We were only standing
there for about five minutes. A man actually got up out of his chair be-
hind us, and walked up to me and said to me "can you move you are
in my way." I can't understand how I could be in his way when there
was probably 2,000 people there that night. Why didn't he just stand
up out of his chair for a few minutes? I was so insulted that I just said
to my husband "let's just go home." We go to a lot of shows here and in
other towns and this kind of thing only happens with the Clearwater
I have decided to not go to the Clearwater jazz festival from now on.
It's just not any fun anymore.
Commissioners should be watchdogs
The mayor recently tried to make it clear that Largo city employees
work for the city manager, not the City Commission. Unfortunately,
while this is technically correct (the city manager "manages" city em-
ployees), she took it to the extreme by attempting to limit the duly
elected commissioners from acting as the city's watchdogs for which
we, the voters, voted them in to do. Yes, the commission is a policy
making body; however, that is only one function they perform. As a
concerned voter, I want the commissioners asking questions, digging
into expenditures and holding city staff responsible for their actions.
Trying to limit individual commissioners' access to city staff is
ridiculous and may actually border on malfeasance of duty. Attempt-
ing to shield this preposterous mayoral ruling by suggesting that all
questions or concerns must first be "approved" by the commission, as
a body, is a blatant attempt to control access to city leadership and is
designed to prevent those commissioners that want accountability
from obtaining needed information. Question to the mayor -just how
do you expect the commissioner to decide on important issues without
some "digging" into facts? Oh I see, they are to simply take the infor-
mation fed to them by you and the city manager without question.
Wrong! We need independent minded commissioners that are willing
to question, dig and not just take someone's word.
This is just another example why voters are fed up with the current
system and is systematic of longtime incumbents clinging to power in
any way they can. Time to exercise our right and, as voters, to fire

The sounds of the human voice
If Sarah Palm's speaking voice was as at-
tractive as her face and figure, she'd be a
formidable political candidate. She already is,
to many people, for whom Palin's nasal, grat-
ing style of orating doesn't matter much. In
fact, in a world where incessant chatter, rack-
ets and hubbub have become as normal as
the sunrise, maybe the more abrasive a
speaker's voice is the more enduring impres-
sion he/she will make on the public con-
For every $100 an average American
spends on physical appearance clothing,
hair style, posture, complexion, makeup,
weight I'd guess that less than $1 is invest-
ed in developing and improving the way our
voices and speech patterns sound. How we
speak and sound can have an enormous im-
pact. But when is the last time you met some-
one who's taking speech or voice lessons?
Professional athletes, by and large, are in-
telligent men and women, many of them with
college educations behind them. Conversing
with them in a quiet setting, you could easily
tell how bright they are. But that is seldom
true when the athlete is being interviewed
after a game. For reasons unknown, the male
athletes tend to lapse into a dull monotone,
devoid of expressiveness. Maybe it's just be-
cause they're tired. Whatever the cause, it's
easy for a viewer or listener to conclude that
the player is a physically gifted dolt.
Many other people appear bright until you
hear them speak. Examples of this are two TV
talk shows "'The View" and 'The Talk" fea-
turing groups of attractive, well-dressed
women. Individually, these women's utter-
ances would probably be worth listening to.
But put the women together and you have a
gathering of chattering magpies, each one try-
ing to get her point across, through the thick-
et of gabble.
Shakespeare wrote, "Her voice was ever
soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in
women." And why not in men, as well? That's
easy: because we've got to sound tough and
manly. Male animals of many species are
noted for their roaring, their chest-thumping,
by which they warn other males, 'Watch out
for me! And leave my women alone!" Excep-
tions to that generalization are many. I think
of movie actor Clint Eastwood. He has be-
come rich and successful by portraying sub-
dued, soft-spoken men who invited bombastic
bullies to "Make my day" and then left them
gurgling their own blood in the dust.
A person's voice is the product of vocal
cords, sinuses, the nose, lips, tongue and
breathing. How those elements interact will
pretty much determine how we sound to oth-
ers. The results can be hard to predict.
Case in point is the singer Barbra
Streisand. To my ears, her speaking voice
sounds like a fire alarm in a Bronx canning
factory. But her singing is remarkable. Years
ago she considered having minor throat sur-
Her doctors told her the surgery might irre-
trievably wreck her voice; so she declined.
You shouldn't tinker with excellence.
Actress Fran Drescher took one of the most
nasal whines in show business history and
turned it into a money-making trade mark.
Her bubble-headed personality made her au-
diences ignore the way she spoke. Another
example of that ability was world-famous
cook Julia Child. She spoke in a screaming
whoop that, by rights, should have alienated
every listener within three blocks. Instead,
her raucous, ebullient enthusiasm neutral-
ized how she sounded.
Can a person's voice change the world? Ab-
solutely. Prime example: Adolf Hitler. He was
a small, nondescript, unremarkable man
until you gave him a podium and a crowd.
Then his piercing, almost frantic speaking
voice took over, exhorting his listeners to
burn, kill and march toward glory. The rest,
as they say, is history.
Possibly the most influential newsman of
all time was Walter Cronkite, partly because
of his balanced, honest presentation of the
news, but also because of how he sounded.
His voice was deep, reassuring, easy to listen
to. His enunciation was not regional, unless
you count Middle America as a distinct re-
gion. Cronkite's words rolled out with author-
ity, but were coated with a beneficence that
made you think of your favorite uncle, even if
you didn't have one. Talk about perfumed
tonsils Walter had them.
Is it possible for a presenter's voice and
style of speaking to be too gentle, too soft? I
think here of Diane Sawyer, anchorwoman for
the ABC Nightly News. Her track record as a
journalist is outstanding. To me, her voice is
as easy to listen to as that of any woman I
can name. Still, at times I wish her speech
had a higher degree of punch or hardness, es-
pecially when she's announcing a news story
with dramatic, shocking or frightening as-
pects to it.

Putting the 'care' in health care
I have the world's greatest doctor.
Not only is she a wonderful physician, she
is the first female primary care physician I've
had, for any length of time. I've learned that
there can be a big difference in the style of
care and comfort level achieved when you are
a woman and so is your doctor.
Undoubtedly, our opinions of doctors go
back to our earliest experiences. Ever since
my mother took my brothers and me kicking
and screaming to see our pediatrician, I've
been no big fan of going to the doctor's office.
I'm sure I have plenty of company on that
one. Even all these many years later I can still
recall the smell of that sterile downtown office
building as we rode up the elevator, and the
fear it evoked. Usually when we went to see
Dr. C, it meant we were going to get dreaded
shots. I don't care what they promised; shots
were never worth a lollipop or getting an ice
cream cone later. I recall one time when my
brother locked himself in the bathroom in the
doctor's office. I don't think he got a lollipop.
Not that Dr. C was a bad guy, but I never felt
comforted by his care.
Jump ahead several decades, and in search
of a physician in this area, a good friend rec-
ommended hers to me. Even though her
Dunedin office is quite a haul from my home,
What do you think?
it's worth the trouble. I wish everyone could
feel really good about their physician some-
one who sometimes has to give us bad news,
but seems genuinely pleased to give us good
news. Someone who dispenses compassion
and undivided attention can be a game-
What's even better, I can communicate
with my physician via e-mail for relatively
minor conditions and she is in the shocking
habit of responding really fast. Imagine that?
A few weeks ago I was attacked by poison ivy
while working in my yard and when I was cer-
tain I was going to itch myself into insanity,
she promptly phoned in a prescription to my
pharmacy and advised me to keep cool, since
heat can exacerbate the evil condition. No
hassle involved. What a relief.
I suspect medical schools attempt to teach
students effective bedside manners, but I am
certain from past experience that if it doesn't

come naturally, forget about it.
Just last week I visited my physician for a
physical and I was amazed at how much time
she was willing to spend listening and advis-
ing. My blood work revealed that for the first
time in my life, I have high cholesterol. After
painstakingly explaining all of the numbers
and letters that didn't mean diddly-squat to

During the course of my appointment, I

life humanizes that person in the white coat
who knocks on the door and enters the room

Swedish author, Stieg Larsson.
In the last installment, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in criti-
cal condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of
a Swedish city hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways than
one: If and when she recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to
stand trial for three murders.
With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael
Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identi-

like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot
revenge against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt gov-
ernment institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" brings back Noomi Rapace
in the starring role of the pierced and tattooed genius computer hacker
Lisbeth Salander, Michael Nyqvist as Mikael Blomkvist, the crusading
journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, and Lena Endre

his wife Francoise, despite her dreams of sail-
ing the seven seas on a cruise ship.
Paul cannot live without Francoise, but he
hates to travel. And this year, he has two ex-

half-brother Jacques, a rambling fellow with a

In 2009, NASA discovered the possibility of
alien life within our solar system.
A probe was launched to collect samples

tar will travel through time and space to Old Havana, an Arabian
desert, Italy, Spain, France and India. This epic journey includes tales
of glory and tragedy told through video, music, dramatic and ever-
changing sets, and dance. Benise's inspiration is his guitar as he be-
comes a troubadour for the ages. Breathtaking costumes add to the
impact of brilliant choreography for Flamenco and Broadway dancers.

leave their comfort zone and discover themselves.
