VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenWhat if Rupert Murdochs voicemail were hacked? Page 13A. Council OKs invocation standards By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE After a lengthy discussion, city councilors passed a resolution July 26 setting standards for invocations at City Council meetings. The resolution, which was submitted by City Manager Frank Edmunds, directs that invocations be brief, nondenominational and presented by City Council members. It also states that no technology be used. It passed 5-1, with Councilor Patricia Plantamura voting against it. Before each City Council meeting, it has been customary for a member of the City Council to present a short prayer, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. However, in the past, the time allotted for this purpose has been used for lengthy video presentations and lengthy prayers. Plantamura expressed displeasure with the measure noting, Seminole has always allowed religious freedom in invocations. What problem in Seminole brought this before us and why now? Councilor Bob Matthews explained the matter was discussed at the citys annual retreat and long prayers is what brought this about. Plantamura countered that there are bigger things in society for us to be concerned with than limiting peoples prayers. Councilor Thomas Barnhorn said the resolution also was written so a member of the City Council and not someone not on the Council would present invocations Original phrasing of a section specified the invocation shall be secular and nondenominational to which Barnhorn suggested the deletion of secular. The revised resolution states the invocation will be limited to City Council members, no longer than a minute, no technology allowed, nondenominational and effective immediately. This is not intended to prevent people from praying but to keep someone from showing a 15-minute video, said Mayor Jimmy Johnson. Johnsons remark was aimed at former City Councilor Dan Hester who once showed a lengthy Power Point presentation when discussion was taking place Permits issued for Sand Key nourishment project Features Business . . . . . . . . . .10A Classieds . . . . . . . . .6-9B Community . . . . . . . . .15A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-8A Entertainment . . . . . . .1,3-5B Health & tness . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . .11-12A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .15A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .9A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising COUNTYSailing lifts spiritsSailability is a nonprofit organization based out of the Clearwater Community Sailing Center that allows people with disabilities the opportunity to either be taken for a sailing outing or to sail themselves using specially designed boats.

Page 6A.Man arrested in abduction caseCLEARWATER A Texas man was arrested in Orlando July 29 in connection with the abduction of an 11-year-old girl living in unincorporated Clearwater. Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives provided several details about events leading up to the arrest of Richie Urich, 19, of Dallas. He was booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of lewd and lascivious conduct. The name of the victim will not be released. According to the sheriffs report, the victim told an elderly adult in her home that she was going to the movies with another relative. The victim left the home at around 4 p.m. When the victim failed to return in about three hours, the family called the other family member, and asked about the girl. The other family member advised that they had not been with the victim and had not gone to the movies. Based on the information recovered some of which was sexually explicit, the age of the child and the potential danger in the situation, detectives gathered information to meet the criteria for an Amber Alert which was approved and authorized by the FDLE for activation around 4:45 a.m. As they worked to activate the Amber Alert detectives also were actively searching for the girl and soon pinpointed an address in Orlando the Central Park Apartments on Westgate Drive. With assistance from the Orlando Police Department, officers checked the address and found the girl at around 8 a.m. The Amber Alert was canceled. Pinellas detectives then drove to Orlando to continue the Pinellas investigation. Orlando police released the victim to her family at the conclusion of the interviews. Detectives said the victim and her family moved to Pinellas County from Texas about three months ago. There are conflicting accounts about how the victim and the suspect knew each other or how they were introduced. Pinellas detectives are still reviewing the interview results and the evidence to determine what charges may result in Pinellas County. See COUNCIL, page 4A By BOB McCLUREBELLEAIR BEACH A major hurdle toward completion of the countys next beach nourishment was passed July 6 when the Florida Department of Environmental Protection issued permits to the Army Corps of Engineers for the $35 million Sand Key project. Andy Squires, coastal manager for Pinellas County, told members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council July 27 that the state has issued a consolidated joint coastal permit, which opens the door for bid solicitation. The deadline for bid responses is Aug. 10. A contract is expected to be awarded by Sept. 30. Work on the 8.7-mile stretch of beach from Sand Key south to North Redington Beach is expected to begin in April 2012 but could be moved ahead to November. The project time frame is six months to completion. Squires said the sand would come from an area 12 miles offshore, due west of Sand Key Park. This might turn out to be cheaper than going to the Egmont (Key) shoals, said Squires. The process will be Billboards to highlight cold crime cases Investigation includes triple homicde ... Page 7A.

Canine degenerative myelopathy is a progressive disease that attacks the spinal cords of older dogs. It is believed that the myelin, an insulating sheath surrounding neurons in the spinal chord, is attacked by the immune system, preventing signals from the brain to the lower body. The mutated gene responsible for DM has been found in 43 breeds including German shepherds, boxers, Chesapeake Bay retrievers, Rhodesian ridgebacks and Welsh corgis. A DNA test can be performed to see if a dog carries the gene.Photo by JIM LAYFIELD Photo by BOB McCLUREA pair of pelicans relaxes on a piling next to Johns Pass Village in Madeira Beach. The perch allows the birds to do some tourist-watching, forage for food or cool off in the water below.Relaxing on a hot dayThe fort at Fort De Soto Park reopened July 27 after being closed to the public for a $1.1 million restoration project. The work began in October 2010.The restorative work focused on the repair of clogged air vents and collapsed drainage systems. In addition, excavated sand was replaced and native, drought-resistant dune plants were added to restore the fort to its original camouflaged appearance. Crews also patched cracks, pressure cleaned walkways and access ways, and installed a ramp that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ramp leads to the forts upper observation areas on the south end as well as new stairs on the north end. The restoration project was funded by a $500,000 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, a $246,000 grant from Save Americas Treasures, which is out of the National Parks Service and $354,000 from Penny for Pinellas funds.The largest park within the Pinellas County park system, Fort De Soto Park consists of 1,136 acres on five interconnected islands (keys). The fort is an important part of the areas history. The fort was named after the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto in 1900 and was built toFort De Soto Parks fort reopens after renovations offer a military defense during the Spanish-American War. Fortifications were built on Mullet Key, on which the fort at Fort De Soto was built, and Egmont Key. During this time, Tampa became the port of embarkation for U.S. troops and supplies going to the Caribbean war zones. Fort De Soto was never the site of any major battle and theweapons of the fort on the twoislands were never fired in combat. However, that era was significant in terms of the evolution of modern weaponry.

A sizeable group of neighbors living on 144th Avenue showed up at the July 26 Board of Commissioners meeting to demand action on a situation they see as spinning out of control. Drug dealing and kids breaking into cars were among the problems cited by Elaine Poe, spokesperson for the group. She also complained of noisy people, party people, beer cans thrown into the street. We are not getting enough help from the police, she said, even though police cars are around here nonstop. Poe also blamed a lack of control over renters of properties and a number of Section 8 (government assisted) rentals in the neighborhood for causing much of the problem. We are all getting tired of people who wont get out and clean up their properties, Poe said. Roger Pryor said he is constantly picking up beer bottles from his front yard. The police are next door all the time over incidents at his neighbors house. Lets do something, Pryor said, before these kind of people come to our front doors. They are there already, Poe put in. Help us, Pryor pleaded with the commission, before we have to shoot somebody. Nancy Gorski told of a nearby duplex where people were constantly moving in and out. Rats are running all over the house, she added. Gorski said Section 8s are causing the problem. The owners dont do a background check, she said. Marsha Loper said a citywide neighborhood crime watch is needed. Weve got a serious problem, she said, when the mayor is accosted by two drug dealers to buy drugs. Mayor Travis Palladeno later confirmed the incident. The mayors home on Boca Ciega Avenue was recently broken into and a number of his guns stolen. Police have a suspect in custody in that case. He is reportedly a known drug dealer. City Attorney Thomas Trask presented options available to the commission to deal with the residents problems. The city cannot regulate who people rent to, but it can regulate activities that violate an ordinance, Trask said. Fines can be levied for violations. Then, hopefully, landlords will quit renting to people who violate those ordinances, he said. Trask outlined two options for the commission to consider. The first, and preferred, is to strengthen the code provisions and have violations handled by the special magistrate. The other is to establish a volunteer code enforcement board. The board option is less effective, Trask said, as it is difficult to find five people who are willing to fine their neighbors. Resident Marsha Loper said she has had experience with both situations and believes the special magistrate works best. Those violating the codes do not take the volunteer boards seriously, she said. They send their girlfriend (or someone else) to the hearing, said Loper. The special magistrate gets a lot more attention, Loper said, adding, They (the violators) show up for that. Just call the police when a problem occurs, Commissioner Terry Lister said. Im serious, he told the residents. Palladeno said the neighborhood crime situation needs to be dealt with quickly. The commission agreed to proceed with the special magistrate approach rather than establishing a new board. Trask said he would draft appropriate ordinances to address the kinds of problems the residents are experiencing. Those ordinances would be discussed by the commissioners and the planning board before being presented for public hearings and voting by the commission.

4A SEB Beacon, August 4, 2011loading (onto a barge), unloading (near the beach) and pumping onto the beach. Its fine sand. It should be good quality. Due to funding concerns, the Corps originally targeted the project in two phases. However, in May, the Corps announced it had adequate funding, combined with 2010 carryover funds, to provide the $21 million federal cost share for the entire project. The estimated $35 million cost will be funded 60 percent by federal money, 20 percent ($7 million) state funds and 20 percent ($7 million) by county funds. Meantime, a smaller nourishment project at the north end of Honeymoon Island is expected to start this month. It was last done in 2008. Following the Sand Key project, the next Pinellas nourishment will be Treasure Island and Upham Beach, starting in late 2013 or early 2014.Pedestrian flagsRedington Beach Mayor Nick Simons said the yellow pedestrian crossing flags used along Gulf Boulevard are disappearing and will ultimately need to be replaced. Since municipalities dont want the cost of replacement, the plan by Pinellas County planner Sandy Knoebel is to solicit advertising on the flags to cover the cost. We have enough flags to last another six months, said Simons. So the decision doesnt need to be made today. But there are already some companies interested in the endorsements. Reportedly, one of the interested parties is Payless Car Rental. We will tell Sandy were OK with advertising but want to have a final say on who it is, said Simons.Emergency preparationsSally Bishop, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management, discussed the importance for town governments on the beach to make interim plans for operation in the event of a hurricane evacuation. If you havent done so already, you need to work with your fire departments and find out where your emergency operation centers are going to be off the island, said Bishop. Where is the EOC going to be and is there going to be room for you? Who is going to go? It is critical that these conversations take place. Bishop said knowing where a town government is going to go during a storm and where it will operate from after the storm needs to be planned. You may come back to a city hall thats not functional for a long time, she said.PSTA repMark Deighton, a former town commissioner in Redington Beach, will replace R.B.

Appointed James Schnur to a two-year term on the Library Advisory Board through July 26, 2013. PROJECT, from page 1A COUNCIL, from page 1AHoward house forces code reviewBELLEAIR SHORE Two years ago, the town passed a tough new ordinance enforcing time limits on the start and completion of construction projects. The law was enacted in response to complaints of projects just sneaking along, Mayor John Robertson said at the time. The town needs enforceable regulations to encourage contractors to complete their projects, he said. The ordinance sets a time limit of six months from the issuance of a building permit to begin and allows 24 months from the permit date for completion. A one-time extension of up to six months can be granted by the town commission for circumstances beyond the control of the owner or contractor. The law was viewed as imposing reasonable time limits, even for the builders of Belleair Shores often-outsized luxury residences. That was before Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard announced plans to construct the Casa Del Howard, a 17,500-square-foot home on a gulf-front lot covering over an acre. You cant build that size house, on that lot, on the ocean, in that time frame, Robertson said at the Town Commissions July 19 meeting. On hand to discuss plans for the Howard house and its construction were the architect Dan Dawson of Tampa, and John Kostreles, county community planning coordinator. Dawson estimated construction of a home the magnitude of Howards could take three-and-a-half to four years. A really solid contractor could do it in about three years, he added. The Howard home has special features, Dawson noted, like a Venice-style lazy river running from the swimming pool underneath a series of bridges, and a bowling alley on the ground level with breakaway walls. Dawson termed the river a fundamental part of the design. He said the whole Howard family was really excited by the Venice canal, and would not want to give it up. Robertson said the town has two options to keep the building law from becoming a potential barrier to construction of its welcomed new housing addition. The ordinance could be amended, a solution Robertson said, has the potential for opening a Pandoras box. Or, the ordinance could be left as is, and the case appealed to the towns special magistrate when the construction deadline is not met. Town Attorney John Elias said the property is subject to a code violation if construction is not completed within the allowed two years. However, the commission need not recommend a violation be generated and could drag their feet in enforcing the code. Also, the special magistrate could grant whatever he wants. He described James Yacavone, the magistrate, as very reasonable. Commissioner Robert E. Schmidt Jr. said the contractor should keep a good weather log. Days lost because of weather conditions is a very important consideration in getting an extension, he said. Commissioner Raymond Piscitelli agreed the existing building ordinance should not be changed. He said the commission wants to be completely supportive of the Howard home, but we dont want to leave a loophole for someone else. Robertson said, It is to the towns benefit to get this home done as efficiently and with as much cooperation as we can. Commissioner John E. Hayes Jr. said Howard and his family would be a welcome addition to the town. (Howard) is a down-to-earth human being and the family has rock solid, sound values, he said. Robertson wished architect Dawson luck with the project. Were behind you 100 percent, he said. Wayne AyersCity prepares to launch study on sewage odorsLARGO City officials are preparing to launch a $60,700 study on odors in its sewage system, acting upon complaints from residents of at least two mobile home parks. Many residents of the Paradise Island and Fairway Village complained to the Largo City Commission last year about sewage odors at several meetings. A Paradise Island representative said the park has spent thousands of dollars on the issue and contended that the city is responsible for the problem. City commissioners told staff Oct. 19 to meet with Paradise Island representatives to investigate sewage problems in the development, which has about 830 residents. At their July 19 meeting, a couple of commissioners questioned why the process has taken so long to initiate the study. It seems to be taking forever to get done what we started a year ago nearly, Commissioner Mary Black said. City Engineer Leland Dicus said the process used to hire a consultant wasnt staffs preferred method. The city initiated a special effort to form an agreement with a firm it hasnt worked with in the past, and several officials, including the city attorney, were involved in the process, extending the time frame. We also have been very proactive in working step by step with representatives of Paradise Island Mobile Home Park. So we have been making efforts to coordinate meetings with them and providing additional time and comment to give them the opportunity to give us feedback, Dicus said. Dicus said the park was provided a copy of the scope of work and fee. We incorporated their feedback and they were aware we are presenting it tonight and thanked us for keeping them involved in the process, Dicus said. Park manager Nancy Perry said July 21 that she is satisfied with the citys efforts to allow Paradise Island to participate in the selection of the consultants. We are very pleased the city is working with us, she said. Paradise Island believes that the consultants selected will do a good job, Perry said. Though the park continues to have odors and the study may take months, a few months versus years of continued smell will really help, she said. The consultants may undertake two sampling events. If sampling in dry weather is conducted in the winter, the entire study is expected to be completed by spring. The study, which will be conducted by Webster Environmental Associates Inc. of Louisville, Ky., will include the 142nd and 150th avenue areas between Lake Avenue and 58th Street. It encompasses Paradise Island as well as historically high odor and corrosion locations. Lift stations and force mains that potentially contribute to the odors and corrosion in the corridor will be included in the study. Once the study is completed, city officials will bring recommendations to the City Commission to lower odors in different areas. Commissioners Curtis Holmes complimented staff because once upon a time we were focused in exclusively Paradise Island, but the study area under consideration is rather lengthy. I can see why it has taken so long to put this package together. Because if you have had cave-ins and everything else along this system, I just have a feeling this has not been Paradise Island picking on the city of Largo, and I applaud what you are doing here, Holmes said. Commissioners voted 7-0 to approve the agreement with Webster. Tom GermondCity may increase tax ratePINELLAS PARK Despite a proposed tax rate increase, the city of Pinellas Park anticipates collecting about $1.5 million less in general fund revenue, a difference of about 3 percent, in the upcoming fiscal year compared to the current year, according to the first draft of the city budget. Pinellas Park City Council met July 26 to hold a preliminary discussion on the budget prepared by staff. While the council didnt vote in the workshop setting, no major objections were raised against the citys plans for revenues and expenditures in the 2011-12 fiscal year. Its very mean and lean, Mayor Bill Mischler said of the budget. Theres not much change from last year. However, city staff has proposed a property tax rate increase to compensate for the 6.3 percent decrease in overall property tax values anticipated for the upcoming year. We feel its the financially responsible thing to do, said Dan Katsiyiannis, administrator for the office of management and budget. The current tax rate of 5.1067, or about $5.11 per $1,000 of taxable value, will increase to 5.4269. The rollback rate is designed to produce the same amount of venue from property taxes as the city collected during the current budget year. In fact, the tax rate is estimated to produce slightly less revenue: about $13.2 million compared to $13.3 million collected this year. The city has projected about a 1 percent decrease in total general fund expenditures. The citizens budget advisory committee, which reviewed the draft of the budget during four meetings, agreed with city staff in regards to the tax rate increase. Its really necessary ... because if we dont, eventually were going to go into a deficit, member Ethel Mudd said as she shared the committees findings with the council. Overall, the budget committee praised the city, not only for the work its staff put into the budget, but for the overall services and infrastructure it provides to its residents. It recommended the council adopt the budget as presented. We know that some things we have to increase to keep the people that are here working now and keep the services, committee chairwoman Nancy Hodges said. Included in the budget is a decrease in the overall number of funded city employees. Seven full-time positions and the equivalent of 2.5 positions in part time pay were eliminated from the budget. City Manager Michael Gustafson has been looking for ways to decrease spending throughout the year by eliminating employee positions and making changes such as decreasing the citys cellphone costs and amending it pension program, Katsiyiannis said. The city manger has been very proactive with that. When he had opportunities to eliminate positions through attrition, he has gone ahead and done it. He has not waited, he said. Because of those actions, it puts the city in a more positive light coming into the next year. The city will save $500,000 in the elimination of those positions, bringing the total number of employees to 516.5, compared to 556 employees during the 2008-09 year. Mischler noted that at one time, the city employed more than 600 people. Gustafson said the city was already preparing for further spending cuts beyond the upcoming year. We are already working on the 2012 cutbacks. Weve already identified at least two, maybe three, positions already that can be eliminated, he said, explaining that his staff was used to the continual budget decreases. Its almost a norm; weve been doing this for almost eight years now. Gustafson noted that the city has only laid off one part-time position during that period. Deeper cuts to the budget would require laying off more employees and result in a decrease in the level of service the city provides to its residents, services that the public would start to notice, Gustafson said. Hopefully, we never have to do that, Mischler said, though he said the city could not guarantee it wouldnt happen. The Community Redevelopment district was hit the hardest in decreased property values, an estimated 6.8 percent decrease in taxable value. The proposed budget includes, as last year, grants and aids to several nonprofit organizations. City staff has recommended adding grants of $25,000 each to Pinellas Hope, a long standing homeless shelter often called Tent City, and Pinellas Safe Harbor, the sheriff offices homeless program started earlier this year.

People with cerebral palsy who spend their whole lives in a chair can embrace freedom and independence. People with severe autism are calm for weeks after a Sailability sailboat trip. Sailability is a nonprofit organization based out of the Clearwater Community Sailing Center that allows people with disabilities the opportunity to either be taken for a sailing outing or to sail themselves using specially designed boats. This year it celebrates its 10year anniversary. One of the exciting things is that from land when someone looks out at all the sailboats, no one can tell which are the ones being sailed by people with disabilities, said Claudia Nable, president of Sailability. It levels the playing field and everyone is just a sailor. Were an empowerment program that just happens to sail, said Tom Calhoun, vice president of Sailability. Nable used to volunteer in St. Petersburg with sailors with disabilities. Through working with one such sailor, Alder Allensworth, she realized that the area needed a program specifically designed to work with sailors who are disabled. Allensworth participated in the Paralympic Games in Australia in 2000 and told Nable about some special sailboats built by Australian, Chris Mitchell, that are perfect for people with disabilities. Calhoun contacted Mitchell, of Access Dinghies, and asked to make the newly forming group three boats, at between $5,000 and $6,000 apiece, and they will have raised the funds by the time they were complete. When the boats were finished, not only had they raised enough money for those three they had also raised enough to order three more sailboats. The organization now has 10 Access Dinghies and two electronic boats that are sailed with a joystick with ones chin. To sail to the right, one pushes the chin to the right. A chin push to the left moves the boat left, and pushing the chin forward puts the sails out. The group also has three Bravos, a safety boat, and a pontoon that has a wheelchair ramp and chair ties. They also have a sip and puff boat that one controls solely by breathing through straws, but Nable and Calhoun said they find the electronic boats preferable because they are more responsive. One veteran, Holly Crabtree, a U.S. Navy Corpsman, survived an explosion of an IED while on duty. She was shot in the head and is still recovering, but Calhoun said she refuses to say she will need long-term care. She is a regular with Sailability, and Nable said she is even sailing larger racing sailboats while getting treatment in Atlanta. Another Sailability client is 24 years old, autistic, non-communicative, a self-biter who wears diapers and would jump and scream at first, Calhoun said. It was his job to take her out sailing and keep her calm. It took a few times, but by the third time, she would get excited when she arrived at the center and was ready to sail. Her mom would say, shes having an autistic day, but what would happen is it just calms her, Nable said. Her mom says that when she went sailing, for like two weeks shed be fine. Shed be a lot calmer. Sailability often works with people from veterans groups, Shriners groups, and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch. Somehow this program touches the lives of many people in many different ways, Nable said. Nable understands how the program is empowering for disabled people because it was even for her. It empowers them. I mean, it empowers me that I got my butt in a boat, Nable said. We didnt have money or the thought to do this up north. But the confidence that it builds in everyone, whether theyre physically or mentally challenged or able bodied and able minded like me because I remember when I first started, all Id do is go in circles and the coach was like, What are you doing? Throughout the years, both Nable and Calhoun have realized that sailing is a good metaphor for life. Sailing is like life. You cant go from point A to point B, Nable said. You sort of have to zig zag or tack through it to get where you want to go. Life is not black and white and in a way I think thats what this is all about. Its not about sailing. Calhoun agreed. The mainstream may have a powerboat life, Calhoun said, but there are so many that have to be sailors. They have to tack back and forth. All of a sudden, okay, I broke my leg or lost my leg and I have to come this way in life and learn how to change course and get over to this place. I have to come back with the wind. You cant sail into a headwind. When your health goes, you have to learn to sail. Both Nable and Calhoun agree that they feel they get more back than they give by being volunteers. It is an amazing feeling to see what an impact sailing makes on people, and they are happy to be able to be a part of it. Not that the volunteering is easy. They lug heavy boats to and from the water. They sweat. They deal with challenges. But they love it. And they are always in need for more volunteers. Not everyone has to sail, as there are always plenty of jobs to do from shore. But as a nonprofit that gives about 98 percent of the money it takes in through its minimal fees and lots of fundraising and donations, it always needs volunteers to help it keep going, Nable said. As the program moves forward and looks ahead to its next 10 years, Calhoun said he hopes the program can expand even more and have more locations throughout the greater Tampa Bay area. They also hope to secure ensigns of their own for the more inde-Empowerment through sailing pendent sailors to use and race. Nable added that she hopes the group can participate in more regattas, both locally and outside the immediate area.

By LESTER R. DAILEYCLEARWATER A nondescript T-shirt shop at 385 Mandalay Ave. will soon make way for a new three-story building with a Starbucks coffee shop and a retail store on the ground floor, a Hooters restaurant on the second floor and the restaurants open-air bar on the top floor. Ive seen the (artists) rendering, and it will be a nice looking building with pleasant architecture, said Clearwaters planning director, Michael Delk. I fully anticipate that it will be approved by the Community Development Board next month and that will be it as far as the approval process is concerned. Any time you are involved with a property like this, there are peripheral issues, such as drainage, but I dont foresee any major problems. Delk added that there will be no on-site parking, except for a few spaces for employees, but there are 700 public spaces nearby. Both Starbucks and Hooters have risen meteorically from humble beginnings. Starbucks, which started in 1971 with one booth in Seattles historic Pike Place Market, now has more than 15,000 stores in 50 countries. Hooters started right here in Clearwater in 1983, when six investors opened their first restaurant at a former dumpster washing site on Gulf-toBay Boulevard. Today, the company has nearly 500 restaurants worldwide. Ive always thought it was strange that a chain that started in Clearwater didnt have a restaurant on Clearwater Beach, said Clearwater City Councilman John Doran. If theres going to be a Hooters in Bogota, Columbia, there should be one on Clearwater Beach. And Tarpon Springs contractor Joseph Kokolakis, the owner and developer of the Mandalay Avenue property, couldnt agree more. Hooters is a hometown company that has done well nationally; its not a national company coming into Clearwater, Kokolakis said. Hooters on Clearwater Beach will be a tremendous asset to Clearwater. Their concept is perfectly suited to Clearwater Beach. Despite the racy name and skimpy outfits, Hooters is considered a family restaurant, and its employees have a reputation for helping local charities. Some old-timers say that an influx of big hotels and now two chain franchises will destroy the mom and pop ambiance of Clearwater Beachs business community. But Councilman Doran sees it as a sign of progress and a vindication of the City Councils economic policies. Im glad to see something, anything, going on, Doran said. Its a good sign for our local (economic) environment that people are willing to make that investment. I think its a positive statement about the future and an affirmation of what the city has done over the past decade. We believed that if the city spent money on the beach and the gateway, the private sector would come in and do the same. And its working. Doran then switched from speaking as a city official to speaking as a longtime resident of the nearby North Beach neighborhood. He said that he hated to see an old building destroyed, but sometimes such sacrifices are necessary in the name of progress. I love history, but sometimes things are just old, he said. I dont think that building had any historical significance, and this (project) is a sign that were moving forward. I like the way this guy (Kokolakis) works. Were very excited about it; its a wonderful opportunity for Clearwater Beach, said Darlene Kole, president of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce. It gives us more options for visitors and the more options we have, the more visitors will come. Clearwater Beach is like Restaurant Row; it has more restaurants per square foot than any other place in Pinellas County.Hooters on Clearwater Beach will be a tremendous asset to Clearwater. Their concept is perfectly suited to Clearwater Beach. Joseph Kokolakis developer

The proposed fiscal year 2012 millage rate of 0.3928 mill takes into account the merger of the budgets of the districts eight basin boards into the governing board, and the $108 million cap on ad valorem property tax collections passed by the Florida Legislature. FY2012 will run from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. The Governing Board merged the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board in May. The merger was implemented to increase efficiency of operations and reduce costs, and is projected to save $350,000 to $400,000 annually. Gov. Rick Scott in June signed legislation that caps the taxes Floridas five water management districts can assess on residential and commercial properties. For the owner of a $150,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, the FY2012 Districtwide tax would be $39.28 a year, or about $3.27 per month. The proposed FY2012 millage rate adopted by the Governing Board will be used by county property appraisers when mailing out Truth in Millage notices of proposed property taxes to residents. Two statutorily required public TRIM hearings on the Districts total budget will be held in September. The first will be Sept. 13 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Tampa Service Office. The Governors office and the state legislature will review and approve the budgets of all five water management districts before the second and final public hearing. The Districts second and final TRIM hearing will be Sept. 27 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Brooksville Headquarters. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Governing Board will formally adopt the final millage rate and budget. The public is welcome to attend any Governing Board meeting to provide comment on the proposed budget.Intersection closure setCLEARWATER The intersection of Cleveland Street and Missouri Avenue is set to be closed through about Wednesday, Aug. 10 due to the Cleveland Streetscape construction. The closure will allow contractors to mill the existing asphalt road surface; remove the old potable water main; excavate, form and pour new pedestrian crosswalks; install pavers in the pedestrian crosswalks; and pave and stripe the intersection. There will be clearly marked detours to reroute drivers north to Drew Street. Access to Cleveland Street businesses will be maintained through adjacent side streets and avenues. The entire project is set to be completed in January 2012.Briefs

Thomas McGrady, chief judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit, has been named by the American Board of Trial Advocates as its Florida Jurist of the Year. McGrady was honored on July 23 during the banquet that concludes Florida Board of Trial Advocates annual conference at the Hammock Beach Resort in Flagler County. ABOTA, a national organization of trial lawyers who handle complex litigation, is dedicated to more effective representation for court litigants and a more efficient administration of justice. Membership is by invitation only and is made up of an equal number of attorneys who represent plaintiffs and defendants. The Tampa Bay ABOTA Chapter nominated McGrady as an excellent, fair and well-prepared judge, who is a splendid example of what a judge should be. Rather incredibly, Chief Judge McGrady maintains his patience with litigants and lawyers while effectively steering a busy and expansive circuit featuring an increasing caseload, 69 judges, nine locations and an administrative staff. The 69 judges preside in the nine courthouses of the Sixth Circuit, comprised of Pasco and Pinellas counties. Last year, more than 328,500 new cases (criminal, civil and traffic) were filed in the circuit. But more importantly, McGrady has been an unvarying voice for the courts, constantly reminding citizens of the why an independent judiciary is necessary to protect the principles on which the nation was founded. The local Chapters letter nominating McGrady for the state award recognized his work on behalf of all courts by stating, Though reserved by nature, Chief Judge McGrady is a powerful, if somewhat unheralded advocate for the independence of the judiciary in the face of recent attempts to politicize the judiciary. Those in the know are aware of Judge McGradys tireless and effective behind-the-scenes efforts to maintain a judicial system that is open to all and free from the influence of financial and political power. For the past two years, McGrady has managed the circuit one of Floridas largest through diminishing budgets, staff cuts and a mortgage foreclosure backlog that threatened to bring civil court proceedings to a virtual halt throughout the state. Under McGradys guidance, the Sixth Circuit was among the first in the state to implement a Supreme Court-mandated mediation program. Pending mortgage foreclosure cases have been reduced in the circuit by approximately 14 percent over the past year. McGrady just began his second term as chief By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER With little discussion, Pinellas County Commissioners approved tentative millage rates July 28 for fiscal year 20112012. If the rates are approved, residents will see increases in their property tax bills to pay for emergency medical services and possibly fire protection. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1. Commissioner Norm Roche reminded everyone that the tentative rates could change before final approval. Commissioners are setting the maximum potential not the final, Roche said. John Woodruff, director of Pinellas Countys Office of Management and Budget, told commissioners that the average market value of a single residential property in Pinellas for fiscal year 2012 is about $144,000. The average taxable value is $98,900. He said countywide property taxes on the average value would be $566.05 if commissioners approve a proposed tax rate of 5.7236 mills, which includes the general fund, EMS and health department. Woodruff said the cost is the equivalent to $1.55 a day in property tax for countywide services. Tentative millage rates approved include: EMS: 0.8506, an increase from 0.5932 Health Department: 0.0622, same as current year MSTU, unincorporated areas: 2.0857, same as current year Public Library Cooperative: 0.4437, same as current year Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District: 0.4378, same as current year Feather Sound Community Services District: 0.5660, same as current year Pinellas Planning Council: 0.0125, same as current yearProposed millage rates for fire districtsSeven of 12 fire districts are proposing increases in their millage rates Clearwater, Dunedin, Gandy, Largo, High Point, Tierra Verde and South Pasadena. The increases are mostly due to decreases in taxable values. Woodruff said decreases ranged from 2.7 percent to 21.3 percent. High Point fire district is requesting the highest increase of 0.9272. The current millage rate is 3.2644. The proposed rate is 4.1916, the most expensive in the county. Largo fire district proposes the smallest increase of 0.0749. The current millage rate is 3.484. The proposed rate is 3.5133, the second highest in Pinellas. Clearwater proposes an increase of 0.5206 from 2.1385 to 2.6591. Dunedin wants an increase of 0.2474 from 2.0102 to 2.2576. South Pasadena is requesting the second highest increase of 0.9069 to bring the millage rate up to 3.1257. The current rate is 2.2188. Tierra Verde requested 0.1705 be added to its current millage rate of 1.7382. Gandy fire districts request was for 0.1008 more to bring its millage rate from 2.1594 to 2.2602. Belleair fire district has the lowest millage rate in the county and officials propose to maintain the rate at 1.7320. Seminole fire district, with the third lowest millage rate, also proposes to keep the status quo at 1.9581. Pinellas Park fire district proposes no changes to its millage rate of 2.3675; Safety Harbors proposed rate of 2.6800 remains unchanged from the current year. Tarpon Springs fire district proposes no changes, keeping its rate of 2.3745.Save Our Homes cap and the Recapture RuleWoodruff explained how tax bills between similar properties might be different. Currently, 89 percent of the 434,304 parcels on the countys property tax roll are residential properties. Woodruff said 64 percent of them have homestead exemptions and are eligible for the Save Our Homes cap on taxable values. He also said the percentage of eligible homes is declining due to continued decreases in market values. In 2012, 48 percent of homestead properties have Save Our Homes benefits, compared with more than 90 percent in 2006. The Recapture Rule raises the assessed (capped) value of a qualifying homestead property by the maximum of 3 percent, or the annual change in the Consumer Price Index, whichever is less. The CPI increase for FY 2012 (2011 tax roll) values is 1.5 percent. The Recapture Rule applies to all properties with assessed values limited by Save Our Homes where the capped value is less than full market value whether or not that propertys market value increased during that calendar year. Due to the Recapture Rule associated with Save Our Homes, a homeowners taxes could increase even if the market value of the home decreases, he said. Woodruff gave an example of the effect of the Recapture Rule for a property with a market value of $205,000 in fiscal year 2011 and $185,000 in fiscal year 2012. Property taxes in 2011 were $565.81. In 2012, the taxes would be $606.70. He said if a property has suppressed value under Save Our Homes, property taxes will increase due to recapture rule and EMS millage increase. Woodruff also gave an example using a non-homesteaded property with a market value of $205,000 in 2011 and $185,000 in 2012. Property tax on that property in 2011 would have been $1,118. In 2012, the tax bill would be $1,059, which reflects the market value decrease, unless the property qualifies for the 10 percent cap on non-homesteaded property. Woodruff said the increase in EMS millage offset a portion of the tax decrease.TRIM noticesBy law, the county administrator must certify tentative millage rates to the property appraisers office by Aug. 4. The property appraiser then prepares a Truth in Millage notice, which is mailed to all property owners as required by state law. The rates that appear on the TRIM notice is the maximum based on tentative millage rates levied by the county, school board, individual municipalities, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and others. TRIM notices will be mailed Aug. 22. A TRIM e-TownHall meeting is scheduled on Aug. 25, 7 to 8 p.m. to allow residents to ask questions and get more information. Visit www.pinellascounty.org for additional information. Final millage rate and budget approvalCommissioners scheduled two public hearings, as required by law, to take citizens comments. The first hearing is Sept. 6, at which time the commission will adopt the tentative millage rates and budget. At the Sept. 15 hearing, the final millage rates and budget will be approved. Residents can review the proposed budget and send feedback to the commissioners at www.pinellascounty.org/budget.County commission OKs tentative millage ratesjudge, having been re-elected in a meeting of the circuits 68 other judges. In 2009, he was elected to succeed Circuit Judge Robert J. Morris Jr., who was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Second District Court of Appeal. The chief judge is constitutionally responsible for the administrative supervision of the courts and court staff within the Sixth Circuit, which serves almost 1.5 million residents in the two counties. McGrady has been on the bench in the Sixth Circuit since August 1999, when then-Gov. Jeb Bush appointed him to fill a vacancy as a County Judge in Pinellas. He was elected for a full term without opposition in September 2000, and in December 2001, Bush again chose McGrady, this time for a vacant Circuit Judgeship. In 2004 and 2010, he was elected without opposition for full six-year terms. During his judicial service, he has been assigned to the Family Law Division, where he was administrative judge, the Civil Division, and both misdemeanor and felony Criminal Divisions. Annual water system maintenance program beginsThe method of water treatment utilized by Pinellas County Utilities and its wholesale customers will be temporarily modified through Sept. 12. The short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those impacted by this maintenance program include Pinellas County Utilities customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Oldsmar. Many communities using chloramine annually utilize chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County Utilities switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions. There are no major indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems and this disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problem. The water will continue to meet federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Customers may notice a slight difference in taste and/or odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Conditions experienced by Utilities customers will be identical to the more than 50 years prior to 2002 when chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water.

By AMANDA SEBASTIANOLARGO How many fifth graders out there know how to write a check? Or make a deposit at a bank? How many can even spell free enterprise, let alone know what it means? If the child goes to school in Pinellas County, there is a good chance he or she will know all four. Enterprise Village, one of the two Pinellas County Education Foundations programs that are teaching students about the business world, is teaching children skills through real life examples, not just theories, Foundation President Terry Boehm said. The program was founded 25 years ago in 1986 by businessman Gus Stavros to create a system that would teach students about economics and business. The horseshoe-shaped array of businesses, such as Sweet Bay, McDonalds and Bank of America, are the result. The students must take a sixweek course before they can start at the village, which is at 12090 Starkey Road. After that is completed they will spend an entire working day at the village. They must first pick a few places they would like to work and go through the interview and application process until each student has a job. After each student is placed at a business, some will be designated as managers, which will teach those students leadership skills as well, Associate Director of Marketing and Individual Giving Tamra Eitel said. The children, now full-time employees at their companies, will be responsible for depositing their pay checks, making purchases with their debit cards and taking lunch breaks. I think one of the real successes of this program is that the kids are learning by doing, Boehm said. Theyre fully engaged and immersed in free enterprise. Theyre living it and thats the best way to learn, he said. The students also will vote for a mayor, have a live DJ that plays requests all day and will now have someone delivering their packages to their doorstep. UPS gave $50,000 to Enterprise Village and is joining as the newest member of the community. The fifth graders that will work for the company, will wear the uniform, deliver the packages and other duties the company requires, but there wont be an actual establishment set up in the cul-de-sac until later. The check will cover a 10-yearspot in the village among the other businesses. Sponsors like UPS and donations keep the program running, Eitel said. Although the small business community that lies behind the close doors of the foundation looks packed, with business walls pressed tightly against their neighbor, new sponsors are never turned away. There were about 1,800 volunteers for the 2010-2011 school year, and are always welcome and needed. Volunteers are usually, but dont have to be, parents of the children in the program, which helps them with issues they are having at their jobs. Although participating in Enterprise Village is only a requirement for students of publicFoundation program makes fifth graders business savvyClouser gets scholarshipCLEARWATER Julia Clouser, a 2010 graduate of Seminole High, was recently awarded a 2011-2012 Dowd and Susan Ritter Dependent Scholarship.

The childs bus stop location along with pick-up and drop-off times will be listed on the card. Parents should review safety tips and other information listed on the card.

The idea has also been spreading on a national level and across international waters as well. Across the United States, similar programs are popping up called Biz Towns. When national delegates from other states or those from other countries come to Florida, they are given choices for which cities theyd like to visit; most of them pick Largo to see the village, Eitel said. Japan and Nigeria have representatives that have visited the village. Japan created a similar type of program and others are interested as well, she said.

Offered by Independent Real Estate Advisors080411 By TOM GERMONDLARGO The citys golf course continues to get knocked around during City Commission discussions. City Commissioner Curtis Holmes has been the most outspoken about subsidies from the city budget to the golf course fund, but other commissioners have also taken issue with the operation. Based on recent discussions, the golf course likely will be under more scrutiny during budget sessions in ensuing weeks. Commissioners also have heard twice from a Clearwater Golf Club consultant, Ed Hooper, who said July 19 the club is interested in operating the Largo Golf Course. Hooper, who is also a state representative, said that city commissioners are addressing revenue problems, and they must either raise the citys millage, reduce services or think outside the box. The city has earmarked $150,000 in its proposed budget for fiscal year 2012 to be transferred to the golf course fund. And if you dont have to spend that money and you take that and put it with the revenue you would receive, you have just given Chief Wallace four or five new firefighters, you have given Chief Carroll four or five new police officers. The revenue is there; its just math. If golf courses are not operated as if they are a business, the city will keep pouring more citizens money into the operation, he said. And its a wonderful activity, Hooper said. I love golf. Is that the essential business that government needs to be subsidizing when there are so many needs? Every other city that he knows of except St. Petersburg is getting away from running golf courses, he said. Clearwater Golf Club President Greg McClimans is a 30-year PGA professional and understands every facet of golf course management, golf course marketing, golf course operations, Hooper said. He thinks you have a wonderful asset, as do I. Its in great shape, he said, but he added that the city has so many other financial needs. Some city commissioners asked that more information on the proposal be provided to them for discussions at budget work session. City officials have explored a variety of marketing approaches in hopes of increasing play at the golf course, which is at 12500 Vonn Road. The economic downturn and inclement weather during the peak season in fiscal year 2010 took its toll on the golf course. The highest net loss for any normal year of operation was in that year, $307,000, a city report said. The Largo Golf Course was purchased by the city in February 1979. The course sits on about 47 acres with frontage on both Walsingham and Vonn roads. The city-owned 18-hole executive golf course also includes a pro shop and a concession area leased to a private operator.

Sunrise and sunset are your best shot for finding a good bite. Targeting deep grass flats near the passes for trout and mackerel was one of the bright spots this past week. Live chumming with small pilchards that were castnetted along a bridge shadow line in the pre-dawn hours was responsible for getting the fish into a frenzy. Using a No. 1 long shank hook will allow these tiny baits to swim naturally and not get sucked to the bottom. Also, using a weighted float will help to get the bait out to the target zone. Redfishing has been decent over the past week with the new moon tides spurring on the good bite. As sunset approaches the huge outgoing tide will begin to bottom out at a lower than normal tidal stage. Its these super low tides combined with fading light conditions that give the redfish an added level of confidence to root the bottom for shrimp and crabs. This behavior is easily spotted by scanning the waters surface for tails. Best baits for this scenario would be weedless jerk baits or my personal favorite, the top-water plug. Theres just something about that tantalizing side-to-side motion that the reds cant refuse. Not to mention theyll often push a wake from several yards away as they make their approach toward your bait, a sight that always makes your adrenaline pump. Tarpon fishing has been hot one day and cold the next. Days that offer slick calm mornings give you the best opportunity to spot rolling fish. Tampa bay bridges and river mouths are consistent spots to check as well as many deep canals and fingers along the ICW. Cast D.O.A. Bait Busters to rolling fish or if their reluctant to feed try fishing whole shad, ladyfish or mullet on the bottom. Pompano fishing has been consistent along Tampa Bay bridges as well as the Tierra Verde Bridge and the Meisner Bridge. Bounce Crazy jigs rigged with a teaser fly along the bottom behind the down-current side of bridge pilings at sunrise for best results.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at editorial@TBNweek ly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Viewpoints 13A Beacon, August 4, 2011Volunteers for this organization have proven time and time again that they are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity International has helped build 400,000 affordable houses and has served more than 2 million people around the world. Thats a remarkable accomplishment and shows the value of teamwork, pride in the community and volunteer labor. Essentially, Habitat for Humanity strives to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the world, building and rehabilitating simple houses. Besides having a down payment and making mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat houses and those of others sweat equity personified. Habitat houses are sold to partners families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County certainly has embraced the goals and standards set by Habitat International. The local organization has built 220 houses in Pinellas County and has funded 189 homes overseas. According to Habitat statistics, 117,874 county households pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing; 47,360 households in the county pay more than 50 percent of their income for housing. Habitat also reports that 17,615 housing units are substandard overcrowded, lacking heat, incomplete kitchen or plumbing facilities and about 68,000 people in the county are living at the poverty level. In other words, Habitat can always use extra hands. Construction volunteers help with almost every aspect of the building process, and no experience is necessary. The organization will provide the training and the tools. The summer job sites are open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the county. Volunteers also help with the stock and inventory and assisting customers at a home improvement outlet store. Donations are accepted by phone or mail. Habitat even accepts small, unused balances on gift cards. To find out more about donating, contact Habitat at 536-4755. Habitat for Pinellass website is full of information about the organization www.phfh.org Volunteer and help make a dream come true. If you were a foreign terrorist intent on disrupting the lives and wellbeing of Americans, what methods would you choose? Obviously, blowing up an airliner would be the last thing youd consider. With all the patdowns and other security checks at our airports, youd probably be arrested before you got within 200 yards of the aircraft youd chosen. (Still, I hear disturbing stories of the many gaps in our airports security systems.) Besides, youd have little chance of gaining control of the aircraft and ramming it into a skyscraper, the way the 9/11 terrorists did. Flight decks are now locked from takeoff to touchdown. The most a bomb-toting terrorist could hope for would be the death of a few hundred passengers. That would be chump change. Terrorists can easily choose bigger and fatter targets. Ever since 9/11, Ive been waiting for al Qaeda to drop the other shoe on us by attacking a cruise ship. Every day, from various American ports, these pleasure vessels shove off, loaded with several thousands of passengers and crew members. Is every one of these people screened and searched as they prepare to board? If so, I havent heard about it. Just picture what would happen if one medium-sized bomb exploded below the water line at 2 a.m. as the ship steamed along a few hundred miles into the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico. It would make the Titanic disaster look like a weekend canoe mishap. Few actions would harm our way of life more than shutting off our electric power supply. Whether we like it or not, we are slaves to electricity. Without it we are paralyzed. And yet the nations power grid could be shut down by a few hundred trained and dedicated terrorists who simply drove up to a percentage of the power sub-stations that are scattered across the land on unguarded (except for wire fences and Keep Off! signs) sites. A bomb tossed over the sub-stations fence in any city could kill electricity for miles around. A coordinated attack at an agreedupon time at a hundred sites would render our vaunted power grids backup systems useless. America would go dark and stay that way for days or weeks. Damage and suffering would be incalculable. A recent news item out of Portland, Ore., suggests another tactic terrorists might use to cripple an important part of our daily lives. The technique: urinate in a citys water supply. You may have read about it. A 21-year-old man urinated into one of Portlands municipal reservoirs. The result: the city shut off all the water from the site, and discarded 7.8 million gallons that might have otherwise been used. The urinator, who was not arrested or charged, said he thought he was emptying his bladder into a sewage treatment plant. A water system official admitted that the city often finds dead animals in the city reservoirs, but does not let that disrupt water use. This is different, he said. Do you want to drink pee? A similar reaction by officials and citizens throughout our country could serve as a welcome mat to terrorists looking for a way to harm American cities. However, such an alarmed response by average Americans is unlikely. After all, hordes of beachgoers each year knowingly swim in water whose high coliform count is clearly posted for the public to see. Many of us are gamblers. We figure were invulnerable. So why worry about a little highly diluted and chemically treated urine flowing from our showerheads and kitchen taps? One of the most deadly imaginable terrorist attacks was set forth in the 1975 Thomas Harris novel Black Sunday, which was later made into a frightening movie of the same name. The terrorists plot was to arm a dirigible with thousands of steeltipped darts. The dirigible would then be exploded above a Super Bowl football game in Miami, showering the stadiums occupants with a deadly hail of darts. The plot was foiled, but no one called the destructive idea incredible or undoable. Those over-used adjectives went down the drain on 9/11. The type of assault we should fear most is the one that, if and when it comes, will shut down Americas (and perhaps the worlds) computer systems. On that fateful day, power grids and entire economies will collapse. Aircraft will no longer fly. Our military defense systems, here and abroad, will be rendered useless. You and I will see our personal computer screens go blank. Civilization as we know it will be rendered impotent. Chaos will reign. Is such a cyber attack possible? From what I read, yes. Is it likely? Lets hope not. Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com.Terrorism tactics waiting to be usedEvery political movement has its rhetorical strengths and weaknesses. The right can wax poetic about liberty and freedom, the left about the nobility of the poor and downtrodden. Nowhere do these differences come across more starkly than on the subject of taxation. (Note: This is not a column about the debt-ceiling negotiations. I would have put this warning up top, but I feared that immediately seeing the phrase debt-ceiling negotiations would cause many readers to face-plant into their breakfast tables or computer screens.) Ask almost any Republican politician, from lobster-rolleating Northeastern Rinos (Republicans in name only) to flinty, leather-skinned Westerners with calluses on their trigger fingers, to explain why high taxes are bad, and theyll do a pretty good job of selling it.Ask almost any Democrat to explain why high taxes are bad, and you will get hit with the velvet fog, minus the velvet. First theyll explain that while they do favor increasing revenues, they dont favor higher taxes if by high taxes you mean taxes that are too high. They favor smart tax rates that are targeted (i.e., higher). Then theyll explain that they dont want to raise your taxes; they want to raise taxes on your boss, your employer and the companies that sell you gas, cars, cigarettes, food, clothes, electricity and various unnecessary surgical procedures. They leave out that those taxes get passed on to you. Then, theyll rush to safer territory: all of the wonderful things government does. Government, dont you know, is just the word we use for all the things we do together. So every time you cut a check to the IRS, an angel gets its wings. Not all of those arguments are necessarily wrong. My point is that theres no poetry to them. The sizzle doesnt sell the steak. Barack Obama has tried to explain that higher taxes are neighborly. That spreading the wealth around is noble. That taxation is a vital application of the biblical requirement to be our brothers keeper that the Bible doesnt require. George Lakoff, a prominent linguistic consultant to Democrats, has tried a different tack. He says that taxes are what you pay to be an American. ... Taxes are your dues you pay your dues to be an American. For all the money Lakoff gets for being original, its funny how hes just plagiarizing FDR, who said, Taxes, after all, are dues that we pay for the privileges of membership in an organized society. Some ideas wont die, however. So there was Faiz Shakir, editor-in-chief of ThinkProgress .org, expanding on this idea on C-SPAN the other day. We should change our conception of what taxes mean, Shakir sermonized. Most people who join country clubs, or gyms, or other exclusive entities in America, feel ... proud to pay that monthly dues, because they want to be part of that special privileged community in which they receive wonderful resources and benefits. Americans should feel that same kind of awe and respect for paying taxes ... we shouldnt have an aversion to paying some amount of taxes. Give him points for trying. But lets take out our red pens. First, one senses that when Shakir says some amount he meansany amount. As for this idea that people should feel the same awe and respect for paying taxes as they do when they belong to a gym, Ive got to ask: What gym does this guy go to? The fundamental problem with marketing taxes as dues or fees is, well, theyre not dues or fees. Dues are voluntary. Fees can be withheld for bad service, and whatever awe and respect one feels comes not from paying the fee but from getting good value for it. Moreover, most exclusive entities dont charge wildly divergent rates to different customers based on their incomes. In fact, vast swaths of Americans dont pay the dues (income taxes) at all. They do pay the fees (sales and payroll taxes), but they get back more from government than they pay into it. And dont get me started on how illegal immigration fits this country club metaphor. The exclusive entity analogy actually supports not higher and more progressive income taxes, but a flat tax. Everybody pays X percent of their income. Everyone has the same share of skin in the game. In fairness, Republicans successfully sell their anti-tax message not because they have better orators or buy craftier linguists, but because taxpayers dont feel theyre getting a lot of value for their dollars, and most suspect they could feel the same awe and respect for half the price.Jonah Goldberg is editor-atlarge of National Review Online and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Piers Morgan called and he wants me to do a whole hour about me punching that piethrower at Parliament! I know youd rather I give the interview to Fox but, darling, Piers and I go way back. Please be a love and say yes. Ill be in my private fitting room at Harrods if you need to reach me. BEEP: Dad, this is James. Sorry I wasnt much help the other day when that nitwit attacked you with the cream pie. As you know, ever since I was a small boy Ive had a deathly fear of pastry. Otherwise I would have hurled myself between you and that madman. Honest. BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Hugh Grant. Yes, Hugh Grant the actor. Remember how your dirtbag reporters kept hacking my phones a few years ago while I was dating that super-hot socialite whose name now escapes me? Well, you shriveled old goat, guess what. Now Ive got your voicemail code and Im eavesdropping on all your personal messages. Ha! BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Dr. Entwistle, the urologist. We got your tests back today and Id like to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. BEEP: Ha, Rupert, I heard that! Hugh Grant here again and, speaking on behalf of all the celebrities whose phones got hacked by your hacks, let me just say that I hope your prostate gland is the size of a croquet ball! BEEP: Rupert, this is Prime Minister David Cameron. I want to personally apologize for the inexcusable security lapse that allowed that impudent pie-thrower to smack you in the face the other day. (But bravo for Wendi, eh?) Listen, Rupe old boy, you understand that despite our close friendship and all the self-serving advice that youve given me since I took office, I must continue condemning your newspapers publicly every chance I get, in order to save my own political hide. Please know that I still consider you a dear chum ... whoa this line is secure, right? BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Jude Law. Yes, Jude Law the actor. You might recall that Im suing one of your papers for stealing my private phone messages. I just wanted to tell you how distressed I was to hear that your prostate apparently is now the size of a cantaloupe. Oh, and Hugh Grant says cheers. BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is the executive assistant to Prime Minister David Cameron. The PM wanted me to inform you that it wasnt he who left a somewhat careless message on your phone a few minutes ago, but rather a clever imposter who sounded exactly like him. The Prime Minister would greatly appreciate it if you erased the previous message as soon as possible, and this one as well. Thank you. BEEP: This is a recorded message from the Downing Street Pharmacy. Your prescription for Cialis is ready to be picked up. BEEP: Cialis! Rupert, you horndog! Eighty years old and still rattling the headboards. Its Hugh Grant again. Isnt this fun? BEEP: Rupert, its Wendi. Oh my God, they want me to be on The View! Can you believe this? Ill need the jet, darling, the big one. See you back in New York! BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, its Jude Law again. I took the liberty of dropping by the Downing Street Pharmacy and getting your Cialis pills, which I intend to leave at the news desk of the Sunday Mirror, one of your archrival papers. I also informed the druggist that your prostate was now as big as a Frisbee, and he highly recommended Flomax. You should check it out. BEEP: Rupert, this is Prince Charles. Because of my familys sad firsthand experience with tabloid phone-hacking, an actor acquaintance recently provided me with the code to your voicemail hope its not a bother. Camilla and I watched the hearings the other day and were impressed by the right cross thrown by your wife at the pie-thrower. Also wanted to let you know that I, too, have heard good things about Flomax. BEEP: Mr. Murdoch, this is Scotland Yard calling. We have reason to suspect that your private telephone numbers have been compromised just kidding, Rupester! This is Hugh, again. Im at Heathrow, where your lovely wife has kindly offered me a lift to New York on your jet. Small world, eh? BEEP: Rupert, its Wendi. Youll never guess who I just bumped into at the airport and hes even more handsome in person than he is in the movies! Call you later, darling.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a blend of science fiction and science fact, where mans own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.The Change-UpGenre: Comedy Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann Director: David Dobkin Rated: R Growing up together, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed theyve slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitchs stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Daves worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each others bodies and proceed to freak out. Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each others lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. Further complicating matters are Daves sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitchs estranged father (Alan Arkin). With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid Photo courtesy of WETA/TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATIONThe groundbreaking work of visual effects house Weta Digital allows audiences to emotionally engage with a lead character, a chimpanzee named Caesar, in the Twentieth Century Fox film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. completely destroying each others lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.The following will open in limited release.

McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. Early Bird kicks off its 201112 season with a reliable Simon comedy. Written in 1969, Simons The Last of the Red Hot Lovers examines middle-aged restlessness, unfulfilled desires and infidelity. Barney Cashman, a 57-yearold restaurateur who married his high school sweetheart, managed to make it through three decades of wedded bliss before succumbing to a growing hunger for an extra-marital tryst. For Barney, its not so much about lust as it is about having an adventure. His motives shape his perceptions about adultery creating an unattainable standard. The play is set in the early 1970s and is made up of three nearly autonomous scenes: On three different afternoons, Barney attempts to seduce a woman in his mothers apartment while shes off volunteering at a local hospital. The first potential lover is Elaine Navazio, a promiscuous woman who is no stranger to infidelity. Loud and uninhibited, Elaine is the opposite of Barney: She smokes, she drinks and she cheats on her husband regularly. Next, Barney lures Bobbi Michele, an aspiring actress/singer with a wavering grip on reality. Her convoluted logic and bizarre tales confound Barney. He soon finds himself submitting to the same paranoid delusions that make Bobbi such an eccentric character. Finally, Jeannette Fisher Barneys wifes best friend consents to a potentially romantic rendezvous after grabbing him during a dinner party and pinning him down on the kitchen table. I had mayonnaise stains on my back when I got home, Barney exclaims. The comic revelation comes in the middle of a long speech in the closing act in which Barney is deconstructing Jeannettes own idealistic moral codes to show that what led them to contemplate an affair doesnt make them indecent or unloving. The Last of the Red Hot Lovers boasts plenty of laughs. Simon covered the bases with this comedy, inventing a variety of characters: Some drip with cynicism, others spin outlandish stories. Theres even a good helping of physical comedy, particularly in the third act, when poor Barneys dissatisfaction reaches its peak. Toby Manion is perfect as Barney. Manion brings the character to life in the first few minutes of the play, presenting a soft-spoken, mildly neurotic man who is as excited as he is terrified by his plans for the afternoon. Manion riotously emphasizes Barneys fixation with sniffing his fingers: As owner of a seafood restaurant, he finds he can never completely rid himself of that low-tide aroma. Manion depicts the characters evolution wonderfully, projecting Barneys timidity and discomfort when faced with the gregarious Elaine in the first act. Hes increasingly puckish in each ensuing scene but he always manages to uphold Barneys inherent decency, even though the character is contemplating an affair. Theres not a hint of self-consciousness in Robin News Elaine: New makes it clear that her character is interested in sex with no strings attached. She struts marvelously, delivers Simons sarcastic zingers stealthily and utterly engulfs the would-be lothario with her tenacity. Tracy Borgatti plays Bobbi, offering up the embodiment of chaos. Borgatti really capitalizes on the characters eccentricities. Her Bobbi rarely stands still and comes with no volume control. Borgatti skillfully depicts the characters rapid mood swings, too: One minute shes giddy and flirtatious, the next shes paranoid and critical. Barbara Anthony so often paired on stage with Manion at Early Bird Dinner Theatre is Jeanette. Anthonys Jeanette is terminally tense and hilariously jumpy. She clings to her pocketbook as Barney chases her around the apartment. When Jeanette reveals the existential dilemma that drove her to consider having a one-night fling, Anthony plays out the characters melancholia with just the right blend of misery and mirth. Barneys claustrophobic life is mirrored in his mothers claustrophobic apartment. Manion and New are credited with set design, and their handy work helps establish mood and time frame: Nothing says 1970s like avocado green walls. While Simon lampoons each of the characters presented in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, he does so affectionately. Each of Barneys intended lovers is a distinct and colorful character, overstuffed with hilarious idiosyncrasies. Still, the comedy revolves around Barneys mounting frustration as he tries to find a momentary deviation from his stuffy, tedious routine. Simon exercises that humor to gently illustrate how people learn to live with their failings. The players at Early Bird Dinner Theatre prove that time hasnt dulled this classic Simon comedy: the humor is still sharp and the characters well-developed and skillfully depicted by this fine cast.

Adams has become one of the worlds most highly acclaimed musicians, boasting a successful career spanning more than three decades. Adams spends more than 150 days a year on the road playing rock n roll favorites to sold out audiences on six continents. To many, Adams is best known for 1983s Cuts Like a Knife album, which included the singles Cuts Like a Knife, Straight From the Heart and This Time. That breakout album, along with the follow-up Reckless, represents only a fraction of this Canadian rockers creative output over the last 36 years. Adams career actually started several years earlier. In the mid1970s, Adams still in his teens joined the glam rock band Sweeney Todd. The band had already scored a No. 1 hit in Canada and had won a Juno Award. With Adams as their new vocalist, Sweeney Todd released a second album, If Wishes Were Horses. When that album failed to achieve the same success as its predecessor, Adams left the band. Adams was 18 years old when, in 1978, he partnered with Jim Vallance and recorded a handful of demos which eventually ended up at A&M Records. Recorded in Toronto, Adams self-titled debut album dropped in February 1980, co-produced by Adams and Vallance. The album was certified gold in Canada in 1986. His second album, You Want It You Got It, was released in 1981 and included the single Lonely Nights which got significant FM airplay. Then came Cuts Like a Knife, and Adams suddenly found widespread recognition, growing popularity and increasing sales. Straight from the Heart proved to be the albums most successful song, reaching No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The title track, meanwhile, charted at No. 15. Music videos were produced for the singles from the album, playing regularly on the then two-year-old MTV and making Adams that much more recognizable. In 1984, Adams followed up with Reckless which spawned no less than six singles, including Run to You, Somebody, Heaven, Summer of , One Night Love Affair and Its Only Love. All six singles made the top 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, with two hitting No. 1. Adams fifth studio album, Into the Fire, was released in 1987. It produced the singles Heat of the Night, Hearts on Fire, Victim of Love, Only the Strong Survive, Into the Fire and Another Day. In 1991, Adams released Waking Up the Neighbors which would become his best selling album. The album included the song (Everything I Do) I Do It for You, which also was featured on the soundtrack for the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in the same year. This song spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television. It also earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Song of 1991. Since then, Adams has released four more studio albums and a number of live albums, including 2010s Bare Bones, an acoustic live album. Recorded in the spring of 2010 while on the road in the United States, Bare Bones features 20 tracks including Cuts Like a Knife, Summer of , Heaven, Only Thing That Looks Good on Me is You, Straight from the Heart and All for Love. Adams also is an accomplished photographer, donating the fees from his photographic projects to his namesake foundation that funds projects supporting the victims of wars and natural disasters and other disadvantaged individuals and organizations.

He was joined by The Merry Band of Pranksters, a renegade group of counterculture truthseekers, including Neal Cassady, the American icon immortalized in Kerouacs On the Road, and the driver and painter of the psychedelic Magic Bus. Kesey and the Pranksters intended to make a documentary about their trip, shooting footage on 16MM, but the film was never finished and the footage has remained virtually unseen. With Magic Trip, Oscarwinning director Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood were given unprecedented access to this raw footage by the Kesey family. They worked with the Film Foundation, HISTORY and the UCLA Film Archives to restore over 100 hours of film and audiotape, and have shaped an invaluable document of this extraordinary piece of American history.The WhistleblowerGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Rachel Weisz, Vanessa Redgrave, David Strathaim, Monica Bellucci and Nikolaj Lie Kaas Director: Larissa Kondracki Rated: R Inspired by actual events, Kathy (Rachel Weisz) is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in postwar Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she uncovers a dangerous reality of corruption, coverup and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk. Directed by first time filmmaker Larysa Kondracki, the film also stars Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn. OPENING, from page 1B

The pioneering musical genius who cofounded the Beach Boys and wrote many of the bands greatest hits, Wilson will be performing the greatest hits of the Beach Boys as well as his solo classics. Wilson is widely recognized as one of the great composers of the last 100 years. The Southern California native along with his brothers, a cousin and a friend formed the Beach Boys while still in his teens. With Wilson as chief songwriter and arranger, the band not only enjoyed dozens of hits, but changed music forever thanks to Wilsons innovative melodies and harmonies. Songs like I Get Around, Help Me, Rhonda, California Girls, Wouldnt It Be Nice and Good Vibrations remain indispensable staples in the rock n roll canon. The bands 1966 release Pet Sounds is regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time. Wilson continued to make great music after the Beach Boys, with 10 solo albums including his breathtaking Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE, which he began recording in the 1960s and completed in 2004. That album earned him a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Mrs. OLearys Cow. Roman Holiday, Tuesday, Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Admission is $6.
