City to retain national affiliation By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Despite concerns by Councilor Leslie Waters, city leaders approved a renewal of the citys annual membership in the National League of Cities during the Aug. 9 City Council meeting. The cost of the membership is $1,489, which raised questions by Waters if the expense was justified during tough economic times. Does the city benefit from this membership? she asked. I believe we need to put all of our efforts into the Florida League (of Cities) and the Suncoast League. Generally, the city sends one representative to the organizations annual convention where a variety of seminars and workshops take place. In past years, the mayor has been the citys rep but in recent years the honor has been extended to members of the City Council. Topics of discussion often usually deal with national issues and how they relate to municipalities. City Manager Frank Edmunds explained that the discussions often deliver information on pending bills in Congress that impact cities and towns, as well as valuable training for city leaders. Councilor Patricia Plantamura also defended the citys membership in the group, noting its tremendous value to city leaders. The citys membership dates back to 1987. Over 24 years, how have we benefitted and have we made good use of well over $36,000 in taxpayer money? said Waters. Its a revenue thing, a taxpayer thing. Councilor Bob Matthews explained that former Mayor Holland Mangum represented the city at the annual meeting prior to 1995. There are pros and cons to it, said Matthews, but I think one person would be enough to attend and to Features Business . . . . . . . . .11-13A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . .7-9,16A County . . . . . . . . . .2-3,6A Entertainment . . . . . . .1,3-4B Faith & family . . . . . . . .17A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Public safety . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .10A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .14A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .15A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising POLICEMan survives gunshot woundsPolice are investigating a shooting that took place in the early morning hours Aug. 15 in the 11000 block of First Street East.

By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH Mayor Travis Palladeno spent 21 years growing his signature ponytail. In less than five minutes, while he sat in a makeshift barbers chair before a cheering crowd, it was gone. The mayors haircut was the main event at the Old Salts Anglers Party, held Aug. 11 at the city marina to benefit local charities. The event kicked off the three-day Old Salt and Bill Currie Ford Inshore/Offshore Ladies Fishing Tournament. Palladeno did not agree to get his famed locks sheared off for nothing. A raucous bidding session for a handful of hair, revved up by the mayor, topped out at $3,000. The money will be split between All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg, and the Celma Mastry Ovarian Cancer Foundation, which benefits ovarian cancer patients. Palladenos ponytail will be contributed to Locks of Love, which makes wigs for kids with cancer. Hair auction winner, Georgia Currie of sponsor Bill Currie Ford, also will receive a deluxe fishing cruise donated by Palladeno aboard his deep sea fishing vessel Live Wire. A total of $4,800 was raised for the charities, emcee Tom Verdensky announced as Palladeno headed for the new marina ship store for further hair styling. His stylist was Darlene Loder of Salon Darlene Marie on Madeira Way. Palladeno said the haircut was the first since his marriage, and would be the last in my entire life. Twenty-one years for a very good cause, Palladeno remarked as he took one last look at the ponytail remains.

Pinellas County commissioners approved another amendment with the Southwest Florida Water Management District Aug. 9 to authorize more funding for the Lake Seminole watershed stormwater reduction project. According to staff notes, the commission approved a funding agreement with SWFWMD on April 16, 2002, for the design, permitting and construction management of five alum treatment systems for Lake Seminole, a treatment facility and a diversion structure for the bypass canal. On June 28, 2005, an amendment was approved to divide the project into two phases and extend the agreement period. On Aug. 5, 2008, the commission approved a second amendment to increase the project budget due to increased construction costs, allow for phase 2 construction and to extend again the agreement period. The third amendment, approved Aug. 9, provides additional funding for phase 2, increasing the project funding by just over $2.6 million. It also extends the agreement period to Dec. 31, 2014 and revises the project schedule due to permitting and construction design revisions that resulted in construction delays and higher costs. The total cost of the project is nearly $12 million. Penny for Pinellas sales tax is providing just over $4 million. The rest of the money is coming from grants, including $1.8 million from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; $5 million from SWFWMD and $781,000 from the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection. Phase 1 of the project is scheduled for completion on Nov. 30, 2012. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin on May 1, 2013. In other business, the commission: Approved a change order to the final negotiated contract for implementation of services of the Oracle E-Business Suite with Applications Software Technology Corp., Naperville, Ill. The change order extends the go-live dates, which were scheduled for July 1, for several county departments. The implementation will now be done in three phases with go-live dates of Sept. 6, Oct. 31 and Nov. 3. The additional cost is $486,348, which will be paid from the OPUS project budget contingency fund. The total contract cost for the project is $7.9 million.

Officials talked about the latest happenings and answered questions about transit plans Aug. 10 during a second eTownHall: Transit Alternatives for a Faster Stronger Pinellas. Bob Clifford, executive director of Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, moderated the event. Panelists included R.B. Johnson, board chairman of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and mayor of Indian Rocks Beach; Brad Miller, chief executive officer for PSTA; Ken Welch, PSTA board member and Pinellas County Commissioner; and Brian Smith, Metropolitan Planning Organization executive director and Pinellas County Planning Department director. The eTownHall blog opened Aug. 8, allowing residents to post questions ahead of the Aug. 10 live event. According to data collected by Pinellas County Communications, 464 blog readers took part, submitting 274 blog comments. The phone lines also were open during the event, which could be watched on the countys website and PCC-TV. Staff called 40,000 residents and 4,639 people participated via the phone. To view a replay of the eTownHall meeting, visit www.pinellascoun ty.org/eTownHall. For more information on the analysis, visit www.pinellasontrack.com.What the panelist saidWelch started things off by talking about the ongoing analysis of different ways to make it easier for county residents to get where they need to go without the use of personal vehicles. He also talked about the many stakeholders involved, most importantly county residents, who need to work together to make important decisions for the future. We need to build a system for the next 25 years, not just for us, but for our children, he said. He said the system needed to be multi-modal and include the big picture. He made comparisons to a comprehensive education system, saying having colleges and places of higher education was good, but we must have K-12 to make it work. Panelists talked about premium services, such as light-rail and bus rapid transit, as well as needed improvements for existing, more traditional bus and trolley services. Johnson spoke next, revealing some of the strategies under consideration, including connecting downtown Clearwater, the Gateway area, downtown St. Petersburg and eventually Tampa. He said those routes needed a premium services, bus rapid transit, aka BRT, or light rail. He said decisions needed to be made about station locations and other details, which require public input. Were trying to figure out what it (transit system) would look like and what residents want, he said. Miller, who began his job at PSTA about a month ago, talked about his experience with other transportation projects, including light rail in Charlotte, N.C., a connector rail in Washington, D.C., and an express bus system in Des Moines, Iowa. He said those projects transformed the areas where they were constructed. He said investments in transportation were rewarded with development and jobs. Smith also talked about the big picture. He said land uses and transportation were tied together. He said it was important to involve the public when talking about changes to land use that might come from future changes to transportation. Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSPanelists of the Aug. 10 eTownHall: Transit Alternatives for a Stronger, Faster Pinellas discuss transportation issues. From left are Brad Miller, PSTA chief executive officer; Kenneth T. Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner and PSTA board member; Bob Clifford, TBARTA executive director; moderator, R.B. Johnson, Indian Rocks Beach Mayor and PSTA board chair; and Brian Smith, MPO executive director and Pinellas County Planning Department director.He said the construction of transit stations would bring development and jobs to the areas where they were located. He said the countys future population growth most likely would be along transportation corridors and the stations. Welch said transit-oriented development in a built out county like Pinellas would require planning to achieve smart and directed growth. Transit corridors will determine where our growth will be, Welch said.Proposed routes and development areasPreliminary plans show a route beginning in downtown Clearwater, where officials propose two station locations. The route then follows either the CSX freight corridor west of Missouri Avenue or Missouri Avenue itself to East and West Bay drives in Largo along which four station locations are proposed. East Bay Drive becomes Roosevelt Boulevard, aka State Road 686, and the route continues on Roosevelt to Ulmerton Road, where one station is proposed, then back on to Roosevelt and another proposed station. At that point, the route heads south on Interstate 275 to another possible station location. Two design options are proposed for the next leg of the corridor continuing down I-275 or jogging over to 28th Street North. The I-275 route would cross Gandy Boulevard and head straight to downtown St. Petersburg. This route includes two station locations. If the route takes the jog to 28th Street North and another station location, it would wind through the Gateway area and down Gandy Boulevard and U.S. 19 to another proposed location before continuing on U.S. 19, down to 62nd Avenue North, back to I-275 and on to downtown St. Petersburg. Three station locations are proposed in downtown St. Petersburg between Fourth Street North and 16th Street North. Eighteen station locations are shown on the proposed corridor map, including two in Tampa for the future connection via the Howard Frankland Bridge. Other routes go to St. Pete Beach as well as northern areas of Pinellas. For more information, visit www.pinellasontrack.com.Questions from the publicThe first question from the public was why officials werent considering short-term projects before tackling light rail or commuter bus service. Johnson said improvements were ongoing at PSTA, but were hampered by declining revenue. Were planning for better service, more frequent stops, late night service, routes to the airport, he said. But that means more expense, more bus drivers, more fuel. He said the countys transportation system needed to include more express services between Clearwater, Gateway, St. Petersburg and Tampa. But we need money, he said. Miller said plans called for making improvements to current services while continuing development of premium transportation options. He said some of the small initiatives going on at PSTA included expanded trolley service to St. Pete Beach and the new trolley route to Tarpon Springs. Investment in premium services is for our children, he said. It takes that long. Welch said the significant declines in ad valorem revenue for PSTA was making it difficult to keep the buses up and running, despite cutting some services and raising fares. He said the future of transportation in Pinellas was still uncertain. It might not be rail, he said. It could be transit buses or it could be neither. This analysis is a process to help answer that question. Another person asked why the focus seemed to be on connecting St. Petersburg to Tampa and not to points north of Clearwater. Another wanted to know about areas such as Seminole and Largo. A third asked about Tarpon Springs. Smith said the needs of areas in north Pinellas were being considered even if they werent on the map of proposed fixed station locations. Johnson pointed out another route under consideration that follows the CSX freight corridor and bisects the heart of Pinellas south of West Bay Drive. It doesnt pass through Seminole, he said. He said improvements in bus frequency and linking services were on the table for areas outside the primary corridor. Miller talked about implementation of BRT in Eugene, Ore. He said the buses followed a guideway area of the street so no matter the traffic, the bus maintains a constant speed. The buses have multiple doors that open at the station, like a train, he said. People pay their fares at the station, which makes it faster because people wont be digging for change to pay at the entrance door. Clifford talked about the great success enjoyed by the city of Charlotte after implementing a light rail system in 2007. He said the bus system had been enhanced and changed to feed people to and from the station. Bus ridership went up after the rail started running, he said.Poll questionsTwo poll questions were asked of the public during the event, which See TRANSPORTATION, page 3A

Viewers and listeners were asked what level of investment Pinellas should make in the future of transit: 77 percent said more than is currently being invested, 7 percent said the same as current spending, and 17 percent thought less money should be spent. Those participating in the eTownHall also were asked what they thought was the right transit choice for Pinellas: 52 percent said rail, 31 percent said fast bus, 14 percent said to limit the choice to the services currently offered and 3 percent said to spend less.Community decision and supportMiller said BRT was usually easier and less costly to implement, but rail could be less expensive to operate. However, the lack of available roadway lanes in Pinellas might change the cost scenario. He said all the strategies had to be considered along with future maintenance and operations. Were going to need revenue to make things happen, Miller said. We still have a lot of detailed work to be done. He estimated it would be at least 10 years to get trains running, shorter time for BRT and even less for smaller improvements to current services if money is available. Welch said regardless of what the future of Pinellas County transit services would be, it must be a community decision so everyone will be onboard when officials go to referendum asking people to approve a funding source. Most of the panel members admitted they dont use the bus to commute to work because of the time it takes. Welch said his niece recently rode the bus from St. Petersburg to the Epicenter in Largo and it took her 1 1/2 hours. Far too long, he said. Welch said some funding for transportation improvements could come from federal and state sources; however, Johnson said, significant local dollars were needed. The feds can help us, but they expect the local area to step up to the plate for operating costs, Johnson said. Smith said the private sector also would be asked to help fund the system, especially considering the benefit to developers and businesses. Johnson said the future of the countys transportation was a local decision. He said it must be approved by the voters and for that to happen everyone had to see the benefits.Map courtesy of TBARTAThis map shows the station locations and proposed routes officials are asking the public to consider for the countys future transit system.

That was the outcome of a special meeting Aug. 10, whose stated purpose was to consider hiring an interim city manager. From the outset, commission members appeared confused about the sessions intent. During the course of the evening, they discussed candidates for permanent city manager and the hiring of a finance director, before finally deciding to look at bringing in a consultant from the International City/County Management Association Range Rider program. The consultant is expected to help the commission focus its city manager search, and bring the members together in selecting the best candidate, Mayor Travis Palladeno said.Commissioner Robin Vander Velde had opened the meeting discussion by recommending the Range Riders provide an interim city manager to replace current interim city manager Bill Mallory. Vander Velde has been critical of some aspects of Mallorys job performance. The Range Riders could offer several candidates that could help us out as interim city manager while we look for another one, she said. Palladeno asked if there is a fee for the service. Vander Velde responded that the person would be paid the salary of a regular city manager plus a housing allowance. Mallory, who is also the city fire chief, is already serving as city manager, said Commissioner Terry Lister. We need a city manager, not another interim manager, he said. Lister went on to recommend the city hire one of the two finalists remaining from the previous city manager search. The hiring of a permanent city manager is not on the agenda, Palladeno said. Lister then expressed his opinion that Mallory is doing a good job but could use some help, in particular by filling the finance director position, which has been vacant since Monica Mitchell left in April. A comment by Palladeno that Mallory would soon be interviewing candidates for finance director brought objections from Vander Velde and Commissioner Nancy Oakley. Oakley said the commission had agreed to wait and let the new city manager hire a finance director. That is true, Mallory said, but several things have changed since then. The hiring of a city manager has turned into a longer process than envisioned. Also, the finance director will now have to take on the human resources function, as the commission has eliminated HR manager Deborah Clines position in the upcoming budget year. We need to go ahead and hire a finance director, said the mayor, an action favored by a majority of the commission (Lister, Reynolds, and Palladeno). When asked for her opinion, Oakley told Palladeno, You dont really care what anybody has to say. So go for it. Besides, Oakley added, the finance director subject is way off topic. Returning to the interim city manager topic, Palladeno said, I like the idea of a consultant. We have an interim city manager, but we could use someone to advise us on filling the (city manager) position we need to fill. The commission will consider hiring a consultant recommended by the ICMA Range Rider program at its next scheduled workshop on Sept. 7. That meeting also will include the topic of selection of the permanent city manager. Some citizens and commission members criticized the meetings seeming lack of focus and the outcome. We are going to spend more money on a consultant to a consultant, said former Commissioner Steve Kochick as he left the meeting. Martha Boos, another former commissioner, said, Ive never seen so many people do so little. This makes no sense whatsoever, Oakley said on leaving. The Range Rider program, according to the website, makes the counsel, experience, and support of respected, retired managers of the profession available to city and county managers and administrators.JPV in disarray, merchants say By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH Illegal businesses and signs, parking infringements and other gross violations are threatening the vitality of Johns Pass Village, a representative of the merchants association says. Captain Mark Hubbard, of Hubbard Enterprises, a major Village property owner, told the city commission at its Aug. 9 meeting that the areas premier tourist attraction is in a state of disarray. Its a free-for-all down there, Hubbard said. Our visitors are getting abused and our legal businesses are getting abused. Hubbard ran through a list of what he said were gross violations occurring at the Village. Two cruise vessels, capable of carrying 130 and 80 passengers each, and a 39-passenger sailboat, are operating without enough parking spaces to meet city requirements, Hubbard charged. Their customers are taking spaces needed by legally operating businesses, he said. The cruise ships were given permission by former city manager W.D. Higginbotham to operate as ferryboats, making stops at Johns Pass Village from outlying origination points. Now, the boats have ticket booths on the boardwalk offering tours up to four times a day, Hubbard said. Illegal signs are going up everywhere, said Hubbard. He mentioned sandwich boards, A-frame signs, even signs attached to city-owned trees and street posts. Also, people are hawking (merchandise) all over the place in violation of the law. Hubbard said the problems at Johns Pass Village have been going on for several years. Ive been extremely patient in waiting for solutions, Hubbard told the commission. However, you have a judicial responsibility to manage the city, and there are gross violations occurring on city property, he said. Commissioner Terry Lister, whose district includes Johns Pass, confirmed some of Hubbards charges. Ive seen the signs on the boardwalk, and they are definitely illegal, Lister said. Interim city manager Bill Mallory said parking at Johns Pass Village is a major issue, even if no businesses (like the boats) were coming in and morphing into something that needs more parking. Mallory said the city is doing site visits and having businesses remove signs off the street. Mallory said current ordinances make enforcement of violations difficult because they require the property owner to be cited rather than the business operator. Thats a tedious, time consuming process, he said, because the owner is not the one doing the violation and often lives out of town. Mayor Travis Palladeno told Mallory to pick up and remove any illegal signs on city property. Mallory said that he is already doing that, but noted that the city cannot remove any signs that are on private property. Concerning the tour boat operations, City Attorney Thomas Trask said he would take a look at the parking requirements and see if there is a violation. If so, the owners could be brought before the citys special magistrate. We will do our best to move this (solving the problems) forward in the right way, Trask said. Hubbard said he intends to get the problems corrected. Emails he supplied to the Beacon show the seriousness of his concerns. In one, Hubbard requests his lawyers help to send a letter to the City of Madeira Beach of our intent to sue for damages.Archibald Park improvements OKdThe commission moved forward with the first phase of a planned renovation of Archibald Park by approving $75,000 for construction of a new deck addition. The winning bidder was Bayshore Construction Inc. of Sarasota. The deck will be built of Brazilian hardwood, a material Lister described as just wonderful. It practically cleans itself, he said. Trask said all beachgoers have a right to use the deck. It is not limited to customers of the Snack Shack operation in the log cabin. Trask was responding to a letter from Alex Archibald, an heir to the donor of the land for the park, stating that a family member was told the deck was for the exclusive use of Snack Shack patrons. Obviously this is something we need to fix, Trask said. Anyone has the right to use any of the (park) facilities at any time.Indian Shores fees, fines going up By JEANNIE CARLSONINDIAN SHORES In a vote of 4-1, the Town Council passed an ordinance to increase fines for prohibited parking at the Aug. 9 Town Hall meeting. It was the first reading of the proposed ordinance that would go into effect after an approved second reading next month. Parking fines will be going up from $15 to $25 and such fines will double if not paid within 15 days of the date of violation. The fine for unlawfully parking in a disabled parking space will increase from $100 to $250. The one dissenting voice was that of Councilor Carole Irelan. I dont think it is the time to raise anything in this economy, Irelan said. Im sick of national government. Director of Finance and Personnel Mary Karayianes said the current $15 fine doesnt cover the clerks time to process the fine since it is done in-house. The higher fines will be in synch with the surrounding area beach communities. Police Chief E.D. Williams request to increase parking permit fees at the Tiki Gardens lot was approved. Again, the vote was 4-1 with Councilor Irelan dissenting. Parking permit fees at the Tiki lot will increase from $5 per 24-hour period to $12. According to a memorandum from Williams, This is one-half the metered cost at the rate of $1 per hour that we currently charge. The rationale for the original fee was to provide a place for overflow condo parking at a reasonable price. The abuse of this has been people parking all day at the beach for a fraction of the metered cost. I guess this is a deal if bread is $4, said Irelan. Karayianes said the revenues from parking fees and fines are itemized in the parking section of the general fund in the town budget. Mayor Jim Lawrence and Councilor Steve Sutch said, according to the 2010 U.S. census, the population of Indian Shores has declined to 1,420. The town requires substitute revenue to make up the shortfall, making increasing parking fees and fines a viable alternative to raising property taxes.Flood ordinanceThe first reading of a proposed flood ordinance passed unanimously. The amended ordinance had no substantive changes to the code. Building Code Administrator Larry Nayman said that the changes were strictly cosmetic. In consideration of FEMA directives, the changes are being enacted in an effort to increase FEMA points to get a better insurance rate for the town. Indian Shores currently has a 20 percent discount for flood insurance. Since the town is nearing the next bracket to achieve another 5 percent discount, these changes could bump the town into a 25 percent discount.Pinellas Suncoast gets piece of 9/11Indian Shores Fire Board Commissioner Larry Schear announced the Pinellas Suncoast Fire District received a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. The distressed piece of steel weighs approximately 145 pounds Schear said he would have a design for the proposed memorial at next months town hall meeting. The budget for the memorial is under $10,000. The fire district is soliciting donations of $2,000 to $2,500 from each of the four towns it covers.

According to a police report, at about 1:02 a.m., officers responded to a residence on the Isle of Palms after a person called 911 to report another person had been shot. Upon arrival, police said resident Jeremy Millspaugh was lying on the ground with an apparent gunshot wound to the pelvis. A preliminary investigation revealed several residents of an apartment complex were involved in on-going disputes that resulted in the Monday morning incident. One of the residents allegedly threatened several others with a knife. During the encounter, another resident fired several shots from a .38-caliber handgun in selfdefense, police said. One of the gunshots struck Millspaugh, causing non-lifethreatening injuries. Millspaugh was transported to Bayfront Medical Center.Police collecting unwanted drugs Aug. 27The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Narcotics Unit and Countywide Diversion Taskforce is sponsoring the sixth installment of Operation Medicine Cabinet the largest in the state in the number of sites 13 in all throughout the county. The event scheduled on Saturday, Aug. 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is in conjunction with National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators Project Drug Drop, the second annual Florida Statewide Drug Take Back Event. The event is an opportunity for citizens to safely discard unused or expired prescription medications and is a multi-agency effort aimed at addressing the problem of prescription drug abuse and keeping a clean environment. Citizens may simply stop by during the designated times and drop off their medications for safe collection and disposal. Operation Medicine Cabinet events to date (two in 2009; two in 2010; and one in 2011); along with OMCs permanent drop-off containers at the sheriffs administration building and north district station have collected more than 4,300 pounds of medications. Eight law enforcement agencies are participating in the Aug. 27 event, including the Sheriff's Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Clearwater Police Department, Largo Police Department, St. Pete Beach Police Department, Pinellas Park Police Department, Tarpon Springs Police Department and Treasure Island Police Department are participating in the effort. The drop-off sites are located at various Walgreens and Sweetbays throughout the county; and at the Dolphin Village Shopping Center and Seminole Mall. The effort is designed to educate the public and raise awareness about the problem of prescription drugs abuse. The problem has reached epidemic proportions, with prescription drugs as the No. 1 abused drug in the United States, surpassing all other illicit drugs. Please be aware that no biohazards or needles will be accepted and that the program is intended for private citizens of Pinellas County and not for commercial use. As a reminder, drop off sites are not located inside the stores but in the parking lot areas. Residents should look for a law enforcement presence at each of the selected drop-off sites. Also, please be aware that the drop-off containers at the sheriffs office in Largo and north district station in Dunedin will be temporarily closed during the countywide event.

Thomas Winston Andrews, 67, formerly of the Maximo Marina, 4801 37th St. S., St. Petersburg, was listed as missing by deputies Aug. 14 after witnesses said they had seen a man aboard the grounded 28-foot fiberglass sailboat Saturday night, but no activity on Sunday. Deputies said it appeared as if someone had been living on the boat. The anchor line was found wrapped around the prop. On the morning of Aug. 15, deputies learned that Andrews was in the Clearwater area. Just before noon, the man contacted the sheriffs office and said he would return to the beach to reclaim the Juanita Dolce. He said the vessel had developed engine trouble and he had left it on the beach at 147th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard.Police seek surfboard thiefTREASURE ISLAND Police are investigating the theft of a surfboard from the 7700 block of the Treasure Island Beach. The theft occurred Aug. 9 at approximately 3:05 p.m. A 34-year-old St. Petersburg resident had his surfboard stolen while he was attempting to save two stranded kite boarders who appeared in distress. The victim observed the swimmers in distress and decided to paddle out on a surfboard. He stated that his surf board was not of sufficient size to complete a water rescue. He set his own board down in the sand and noticed two preteen boys in the area. The complainant asked one of the boys if he could use their larger board to assist the stranded swimmers. When the complainant returned to shore several minutes later, his board and the boys were gone. The victims surfboard is a white, 5-foot, 8-inch Erie E. Police are asking for the publics assistance in identifying the suspects responsible for taking the surfboard. The suspects left behind a blue and white stand-up paddleboard. Anyone with information regarding the surfboard or the suspects, should contact Officer Steve Timlin at 547-4595.Chop shop operator arrestedCLEARWATER A Clearwater man was arrested Aug. 9 for allegedly operating a chop shop and for grand theft auto, according to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report. Deputies responded to a LoJack vehicle theft recovery system hit on a stolen vehicle out of Hillsborough County, the report said. The hit led them to an industrial park at 1974 Sherwood St. in Clearwater. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with Robert P. Evans, 50, and were allowed into Unit F, where they found several vehicles in different stages of being dismantled, the report said. Arson and auto theft unit detectives responded to the scene, and according to detectives, so far five vehicles have been identified and confirmed as being stolen, the report said. The vehicles are all late model Ford Mustangs and had been reported stolen out of various jurisdictions to include the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, Clearwater Police Department, and Pinellas Park Police Department. The vehicles had been stolen within the last two years. Detectives say the vehicle stolen from the Sheriffs Office jurisdiction was stolen from Lokey Nissan in Clearwater. The second grand theft auto charge stems from the hit on the vehicle stolen from Hillsborough County. Evans is charged with operating a chop shop, four counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $25,500 bond. Additional charges are forthcoming, the report said, and the investigation continues.Pinellas Park war memorial damagedPINELLAS PARK The Korean War memorial at Freedom Lake Park was found damaged the morning of Aug. 11, with several pieces of granite broken from its base. Pinellas Park police were called to the scene at around 10:11 p.m. Aug. 11. On the west side of the pentagon-shaped monument, large granite chunks lay on the ground. The bottom tier of the structure, below the plaque commemorating the sacrifice of the U.S. Marines, had been smashed. Police estimated the damage at a cost of $1,000. A Largo-based company, Cutting Edge Granite, has agreed to donate the time and material to repair the monument, at a quoted cost of $1,700, said city spokesman Tim Caddell. Along with the damage, several of the granite pieces were stolen from the site, police said. The case is still under investigation. Police havent determined how the extensive damage was caused, but have ruled out a vehicle, according to spokesman Sgt. Brian Unmisig. No graffiti or other damage was done to the monument. Perpetrators could be charged with grand theft and criminal mischief. The monument, built in 1990, supports a 110-foot flagpole that flies an American flag 30 feet long.Newspaper vendor carjacked at gunpointPINELLAS PARK Police are looking for two black males wanted in connection with a Aug. 13 robbery of a St. Petersburg Times newspaper vendor. According to a report posted on Pinellas Park Polices Facebook page, Susan Olson, 37, of Tampa was placing newspapers in a newspaper vending machine at the intersection of Lake Boulevard and 43rd Street North about 2:30 a.m., when two men armed with handguns pulled up in a silver Kia Spectra. One of the men pointed a handgun at Olsons face and demanded her car and personal items. The suspects then fled in Olsons silver 1988 Isuzu Rodeo, Florida license plate, 256 HRB. Olson was able to flag down another citizen for a ride and, a short distance away, she found an officer and reported the crime. The silver Kia Spectra was found near the scene of the crime. Investigating officers checked the license tag and found that the Kia had been taken during an armed carjacking in St. Petersburg on Aug. 10. The suspects are described as two black males, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Both had on dark clothing, including short sleeve shirts and ski masks. One is described as having light colored skin. They were last seen west on Lake Boulevard in Olsons Isuzu. Anyone who spots the stolen car is asked to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information on who the suspects may be, or information that may solve this crime, are asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Pinellas at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org,to be eligible for a cash reward and maintain their anonymity.

At 6 p.m., several children were chasing each other around the playground, while benches full of parents watched nearby. This scene is the same whether its the early morning crowd, or the last families of the night. One of the most notable and more recent changes, a static-free turf that feels like backyard grass, was finished being installed last week. The patent just went through for the turf last week and was an addition that was well worth the money, said Largo Parks Superintendent Greg Brown. The instillation of the faux grass at the park is the first in the world. A frequenter to the new playground, Ashley Sabo, said the soft, green ground under her feet is her favorite addition, because it doesnt hurt when you slip and fall, or come down a slide too fast and land on it. Replacing the concrete for pseudo grass has lessened the amount of cut up legs and other accidents, at least between Sabo and her friends. There have been little to no malfunctions with the equipment so far, except for replacing the turf around the merry-go-round. The measurements were off during the build, and the height wasnt where it needed to be. Needing more benches was one of the only requests Brown heard often, so a few more were added throughout the playground area for parents to sit while their children played. Playground visitors have been coming from all over Florida, Brown said, and arent just the same Largo residents that live down the street. In fact, the majority of them are from surrounding cities or sometimes traveling even farther to see the new space. We tracked the amount of people coming for one month, and it came out to about 55,000; thats phenomenal, Brown said. I sometimes have complaints that its too busy here. The crowds are playing longer too, arriving promptly when the park opens at 8:30 a.m. and others not leaving until closing time at 10:30 p.m. If the cleaning doesnt get done before the park opens up at 8:30 a.m., its too late for the rest of the day because people are already out there using the equipment, and park staff would literally be cleaning around them, Brown said. Another addition thats on the way is the LED screen that will be positioned near the entrance of the playground. It will display upcoming events and show video from the city of Largo website. Vandalism has gone down as well since the rebuild, possibly because of the high amount of families and people always at the park now as opposed to before, Brown said. Who wants to spray paint and ruin things with 20 moms watching you? Brown said. Local resident Dave Tripp and his 3-year-old son, Corbin, love the new look and have been coming twice the amount of time that they went to the old playground. Everything is better about this park as opposed to the old one, he said. Theres no comparison, he said. Shortly before the renovation, Tripp started taking his son to play at Walsingham Park because it was closer to his home, and he didnt think the old park was worth the drive. But now, the family visits the playground several times a week. The train that circles the park is a huge attraction for new visitors as well, something that cant be found at many other playgrounds, Brown said. Social media and other technology programs, such as the Playgrounds app on the iPhone, may be contributors to the increase in visitors as well. Browns only regret is that he didnt put a power generator on the merry-go-round, one of the most highly used attractions on the playground. The only recommendation, besides adding more benches, came from 12-year-old Sarah Beyer. She wants to see safety belts added to the merry-go-round, because of the amount of children that spin too fast and are falling off. On the old playground, one child fell off and bumped his head pretty hard, she said. The comments have been really positive, better than we ever could have dreamed of, Brown said. We spent a lot of money, but we did it right.New Largo Central Park playground is popular with the masses Photos by AMANDA SEBASTIANOThe merry-go-round is the most popular attraction at Largo Central Park.

McClintock is a 2009 graduate of Seminole High School. He joined the Navy in October 2009. The USS New Orleans is the first San Antonioclass amphibious transport dock ship to undergo the deperming process. Deperming a ship reduces the ships magnetic signature, by erasing the permanent magnetism from ships and submarines to camouflage them against magnetic detection vessels and enemy marine mines. This process is a key element in preparation for New Orleans future taskings. The ships war fighting capabilities include a state-of-the-art command and control suite, a large flight deck and advanced ship survivability features that enhance its ability to operate in the unforgiving littoral environment. Naval Base Point Loma is the only station on the West Coast with magnetic silencing support capability.

According to the organization, pending sales are down almost 6 percent compared to June 2011, and listings continue to fall. Local brokers indicated that a slowdown toward the end of the summer as children go back to school is typical. They attributed the drop to both decreased listings as well as economic uncertainty. Overall, residential market sales increased from 890 to 1,235 units, or 39.9 percent, from July 2010 to July 2011, according to the organization. The median sales price for the same time period dropped 4.5 percent, from $135,000 to $114,000. Active listings continued to slide by 27 percent from July 2010 to July 2011, continuing seven straight months of listing decreases. Condo sales from June 2010 to June 2011 are up nearly 42 percent. The median sales price for condos continues a pattern of up and down fluctuations between $75,000 and $95,000. For June it is $92,000, a decrease of 16 percent from July 2010. Condo listings decreased from 5,482 to 4,389 or 20 percent for the same time period. The organization reported that single-family listings are down from 6,675 to 4,470, plummeting by 33 percent compared to July 2010. The median sales price is down from $140,000 to $122,500 from year over year. Single-family sales dropped about 4.5 percent during this period of time. Cash is still dominating the market, as 61 percent of all sales last month were cash buyers, while conventional made up only 22 percent of sales, the organization said. Days on market also increased for distressed and nondistressed properties by almost 35 percent last month.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK Nautical Structures Industries, a yacht accessory manufacturing corporation, will be expanding its operations to a larger Pinellas Park facility and adding about 30 new employees to its staff over the next three years. We are currently over capacity at this point in time, Lynsy Skewes, company controller, said. Weve been able to come through the recession and start hiring again. Nautical Structures Industries manufactures deck cranes, stairs and boarding equipment for yachts. The company will be moving from their current facility at 10351 72nd St. N., on the south side of Bryan Dairy Road, to a vacant, 94,000-square-foot building about half a mile away on the north side of the highway, near the intersection with Belcher Road. Along with purchasing the propertys 5 acres, the company is investing about $6 million into the expansion project. We are thrilled to report that business is great, and its the right time to take our operations to another level, Nautical Structures president Bob Bolines stated in a press release. The city of Pinellas Park and Pinellas County Economic Development have been enormously helpful as weve put together our expansion plan. The city and county economic development helped the company take advantage of Floridas Qualified Target Industry program, which gives a tax refund for new jobs in targeted industries. The company also received help with financing the expansion through an Industrial Revenue Bond, through which local governments can offer qualified manufacturers tax-free, below-market interest rates to help them purchase land, buildings and equipment. By helping Nautical Structures grow its operations in Pinellas Park, existing jobs will be retained and new jobs will be added. Wages from these jobs will have a local economic impact of $1.9 million annually, Mike Meidel, director of county economic development, stated. The retention of existing businesses is critical to Pinellas Countys economic success. The company currently employs 37 people, including five engineers who help customize about 85 percent of its products. The new jobs to be added to its operations will vary from high-tech, higherpaid jobs, such as an industrial engineer and quality control manager to specialized jobs such as welders, manual mechanists and hydraulic, electrical and mechanical assemblers, Skewes said. Weve been getting very busy, which is very good for us, she said. We may have to be hiring for a second shift. The renovation of Nautical Structures new facilities at 7301 114th Ave. will take about six to eight months to complete, Skewes said. The building has been abandoned for about five years and subject to internal vandalism. The company began demolition at the site June 29. The plan is to move NSI Precision, its division that produces customized parts for other manufacturers, in October and slowly move the rest of the company in by the beginning of 2012, Skewes said. Theres so many people that are going to be involved in this, she said, of the expansion, mentioning the contractors and subcontractors hired through the renovation process. Its not just helping one medium-sized company. Its going to be helping a lot of people. Nautical Structures started in 1983 as a smaller-scale manufacturer, making small davits and tail-lifts. Weve grown quite a bit from back then, Skewes said. Were on a kind of upswing again, and its great. The company exports about 85 to 90 percent of its products, she said. I am very happy with Nautical Structures choice to remain in Pinellas Park, the citys mayor Bill Mischler stated. Job creation, repurposing of an underutilized site, business retention these are all elements of a healthy city that will greatly benefit the citizens of Pinellas Park. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESEmployees at Nautical Structures Industries paint a part of a crane in an enclosed room within the facility at 10351 72nd St. N. in Pinellas Park. The yacht accessories manufacturing company will be moving its operations to a 94,000-square-foot facility, three times larger than their current space.Pinellas Park business to add about 30 jobs to local economyBiz notes Orthodontist starts digital billboardSEMINOLE Seminole orthodontist Dr. Thomas Kaineg is launching a digital billboard at 8500 113th St., for use by area businesses and professionals to use to promote their expertise and possible special offers.

PETERSBURG Big3 Entertainment and Bill Edwards Presents, the twin companies that manage multiple entertainment properties throughout the Tampa Bay area (Big3 Records, Big3 Studios, The Club at Treasure Island, Taste of Pinellas, and the Mahaffey Theater) has appointed Scott Schecter as president. Schecter has assumed responsibility for the dayto-day operations and strategic development of all Big3 Entertainment/Bill Edwards Presents entertainment properties, with special emphasis on transforming the Mahaffey Theater in downtown St. Petersburg into a top performing arts venue. A 30-year veteran and industry leader in the world of high-end entertainment, Schecter comes to Big3 Entertainment on the heels of having held the position of vice president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas, the worlds largest provider of branded casino entertainment. For nearly a decade, Schecter was instrumental in the success of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Schecter also was influential in securing resident artist deals with Jerry Seinfeld, Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Cher, Elton John, Donny and Marie, and Barry Manilow. Additionally, while with Caesars Entertainment, his office had oversight on entertainment strategic direction, content development, and venue operations for a network of 35 casino resort venues across North America. Tampa Bay recognizes great entertainment when they see it, said Schecter. This is a community that has recently hosted everything from the Super Bowl to the World Series, so our target-audience is both sophisticated and selective. We have built an experienced and passionate team of professionals who are deeply dedicated to delivering the very best to Tampa Bay. Guided by the leadership of owner and president Bill Edwards and managing director Joe Jimenez, were working around-theclock to provide a diverse lineup of must-see shows, concerts and signature special events. From the Mahaffey Theater to The Club at Treasure Island, it will be our privilege and honor to bring the brightest stars of stage, song and screen to the people of Tampa Bay.Business seeks help with items for troopsSEMINOLE Hers Fitness for Women, 12985 Park Blvd., is participating in the Treats For Troops program, which sends care packages to men and women stationed overseas in the U.S. military.

Their shadow lines both night and day make excellent ambush points for predatory fish such as tarpon and cobia and their adjacent structures attract bottom dwellers such as snapper, snook and pompano. The bottom line is, for opportunistic anglers, bridge fishing can be a productive way to put a few fish in the cooler with some good eats while staying cool and dry at the same time. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is by far the best man-made structure for fishing in Pinellas County and most likely the west coast of Florida. It takes years to learn all of the tricks to fishing the Skyway, but even the most novice of anglers can get a rod bent with some basic knowledge of current, bait and tackle. Smaller bridges along the Intracoastal Waterway, such as the Miesner Bridge, Bay Way Bridge, Tierra Verde Bridge, Clearwater Pass Bridge and Johns Pass Bridge, are great bridges as well. Although these bridges may lack the size of the Skyway, they often are less pressured. Snook fishing can be great around the fenders and snapper will hold around any bottom debris and always have a flat-line out with fresh live bait in case of a cobia or tarpon cruising by. Pompano can be found along most bridges in the county. Anchor your boat or use a trolling motor to keep you in place so that you can fish the down current side of the bridge pilings. Bounce Crazy jigs rigged with a teaser fly just off the bottom, or try a live fiddler crab fished up against the piling.

Viewpoints 15A Beacon, August 18, 2011Largo officials are giving strong consideration to a proposal to relocate the Belleair Bluffs fire station to another parcel in the Bluffs. Though not perfect, the proposal appears to be the best option to provide service to Bluffs and Belleair areas while also serving the Indian Rocks Road corridor. Though a couple of other fire stations in Largo need work, city officials rank Station 43 as their top priority for reconstruction because of its age and condition. A converted gas station, the station doesnt meet national fire protection standards. Also, Bluffs officials would like to put the property on which Fire Station 43 sits back on the tax rolls. For months Largo officials considered buying property owned by Hospital Corporation of America on Indian Rocks Road in Largo for a consolidated fire station. Moving Station 39, which is located in the Ridgecrest area, to the west was expected to provide efficiency for the area it serves, especially since the city approved agreements last year to provide fire-suppression services to Belleair and Belleair Bluffs. Included with plans for the move was the elimination of Station 43. Among the other benefits, the plan would reduce personnel by half, a substantial costs savings. However, that plan didnt pan out because portions of the property lie in a flood hazard zone and other issues. Also, the likelihood of the city establishing a station along other parts of the corridor is doubtful because of the flood zone. Certainly, Belleair Bluffs commissioners should be pleased with the option of relocating Station 43 to Bayway Avenue, which is centrally located in the Bluffs. Hard to take issue with putting the current station site on the tax roll, too. Several legal and financial issues need to be resolved, but the proposal appears to be the best option available to ensure that cost-effective fire-suppression services is provided to areas in southwest Largo as well as Belleair Bluffs and Belleair. Its rumored that a sizeable number of U.S. medical schools rely on the old spiritual Dry Bones as part of their anatomy courses. You remember how the lyrics go: The foot bone connected to the leg bone, the leg bone connected to the back bone and so on, right up to the top of the head bone. The song was written by James W. Johnson (1871-1938) and has been recorded by many artists. The lyrics are based on a Biblical passage, Ezekiel 37:1-14, in which God asks the prophet to visit a valley filled with dry bones. God supplies new flesh to the bones, causes the bones to be reconnected and then breathes the Spirit into them. Its a lovely story, and gives hope to old-timers and others whose bones are feeling weary and somewhat disconnected. The American Medical Association frowns on the use of Dry Bones in medical school curricula, for obvious reasons. One is that most U.S. schools of medicine are subsidized in small or large ways by public funds. The separation of church and state demands that religion be kept out of the teaching in tax-assisted colleges and universities. In a famous 1937 decision, U.S. vs. the Appaloosa Institute of Orthopedic Medicine, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that dry bones be banned from all anatomy courses in tax-supported colleges. The court said, It is outrageous to believe that any reputable physician would think of treating, say, a compound fracture of the tibia by employing the superficial guidance to be found in dry bones even if the anatomical details were not derived from an obscure episode of the Old Testament. But to allow fragments of any religion to influence American medical education is reprehensible, and cannot be allowed. This ruling is invalid, of course, for medical schools that do not accept government funding. These include the Billy Sunday School of Be-Healed! Miracle Medicine, situated in Indigo, Ind. Its president, the Rev. Arkie Muldoon, has said, If those atheists in Washington think they can prohibit the teachings of the prophet Ezekiel to benefit our medical students and the thousands of sick and needy they will treat, they need to get their head bones examined. Another medical school in Arkansas stages an annual dry bones talent show each spring, in which students construct lifelike skeletons that seem to dance and sing. The highlight of a production is the telling of bony jokes. Example: I call my girl friend Napoleon. Why? Because she has so many bony parts. A second reason dry bones is not endorsed by leading medical schools is that the lyrics leave out so many bones. The bones of the pelvic region, for example. The song says the thigh bone is connected to the back bone, but thats not quite true. If I read my anatomy charts correctly, the thigh bone is connected to a socket that is, in turn, part of the ilium-pubis-ischium structure. Dry bones says nothing about the bones of the hand, arm, jaw or chest. Which is just as well. Who needs all that extra detail? Bones are important. Without them, wed just be clumps of fat, muscle and connective tissue without anything to connect. Bones give us our fundamental shape. One of the least-researched bones is the funny bone. Situated near your elbow, its the only bone in your body that you cant break. Thats because its not really a bone. Its the ulna nerve, and when you accidentally pinch it against one of your arm bones you get a tingling feeling that can be painful. It feels sort of funny, hence the name. Bones are sometimes used to describe human conditions. Such as bone tired. Muscles get tired; bones dont. But they sometimes feel that way. Same way with bone lazy. That expression isnt fair. Why blame bones for our laziness? One of todays better TV series is a crime program called Bones. Several extremely bright, mostly young scientists work with an FBI agent to identify dead crime victims by analyzing their bones and other body fragments. The shows scripts are clever and the women are gorgeous. Without the dug-up bones of ancient creatures, wed have much less knowledge of what the earth and its life were like several million years ago. Archaeologists love bones, especially old ones. The crime novelist Agatha Christie was happily married to an archaeologist. She said, The older I get, the more hes interested in me. A final quote, by actor Peter Ustinov: Parents are the bones on which children cut their teeth. Anyone disagree with that?Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Using dry bones to teach anatomyAmerica doesnt need thisEditor: Well, its finally over terrorism, ineffective government and unethical money deals, all the things that made this country go from wagons to space ships in 100 years are all about to end. The monster has just shown us and the world who really is running this show we call Life in America. No, not the police, military, Wall Street, banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, lawyers, etc. However, all but police and military are involved with this sector, and they benefit from it. Drum roll please. Dare I even mention the name that resides in Mount Doom? Credit score rating agencies. There, I said it. No one group has done more damage to the integrity, honesty and feeling of self-worth than this one. And If we as a people and country dont stop the way this whole hypocritical, too much credit youre a risk, dont have enough credit, sorry cant help you But we sure let everyone take as much off you as they can. Theyre destroying lives, families and businesses. People need jobs and families need homes. We dont need this. You bet Im mad. Al Neuman LargoDebt ceiling and Obama dramaEditor: What a drama the elected officials put up in Washington. They should be ashamed of themselves for behaving like they did. I remember, the late democratic senator from New York, Sen. Patrick Moynihan, said, Every person is entitled to their own opinion, but not his own facts. But, what we saw was our leaders twisting around the facts with their desired spin to fool the people into believing what they wanted them to believe. American people are much smarter then that. When Barnie Frank and many others came out and blamed it all on the Tea Party, I just laughed and said, You cannot be this stupid ... or maybe you are. We as a country need to make hard choices; do it now, and lets get moving forward. No nation can survive on the power of debt. The lenders, other nations in the world, like China, Japan, South Korea, are waiting for us to fix the problem by loaning us money at 20 to 30 year 3 percent rates so we can get our house in order. They understand that a fix to our debt problem is vital to the survival of their own economies. Obama and his cronies have decided to keep the system clogged up by printing more money that we dont have. Lets flush out the system so the nation can start moving forward toward a sustainable recovery, and growth. Mr. President, please lead. These are times, where unthinkable is becoming thinkable. Satendra P. Singh ClearwaterThings in the waterEditor: I loved your article on, How to avoid being eaten alive. That was great! When I think about the places weve gone in the ocean, i.e., Florida, South Carolina, California, Panama, oy vey! I only went waist deep because Id be safe there. (ha ha), I dont think I ever want to go in the ocean again, unless its up to my ankle. Even then I remember the video where the Orca whale comes right to the beach and grabs a seal and scoots its way back in. Im not sure if I want to go in the river either. Sharks swim upstream. I dont know if I want to go in the lake either. See the size of them catfish people are noodling? Ive watched my fair share of monster flicks, like Creature From the Black Lagoon. Theres things down there. Maybe Ill just stick with my pool. As long as it is not at night, in the dark, where sharks or other things could be in your pool, waiting. Safe swimming, Nijole King Woodland, Calif.The clerk was having a bad day. Thats the only explanation I can think of for her giving me a hard time when I asked her for a public record. Since nobody witnessed my conversation with her, I wont divulge the name of the government agency for which she worked. However, because I spend a lot of time covering the city of Largo, I feel obligated to point out that the clerk with the bad attitude did not work for Largo city government. About two weeks ago, I asked the clerk for a public record. It only took her a minute to produce it. I got the information I needed from the file within five minutes, instead of the 45 minutes I thought it would take. Since I had some more time to spare, I waited in line for about five minutes and asked for another file. The clerk asked me if there were any other files I needed. I said that was it. Are you sure? she asked. Im not going to walk back there again. I was taken aback by that comment. But I said I was sure. She brought me the file, and I got the information I needed and returned the file to her. As I was leaving the agency, I couldnt get the conversation I had with the clerk out of my mind. By the time I returned to the office, I was peeved. That clerk had come dangerously close to violating the public record. Under state law, generally speaking, agencies are not supposed to impose conditions upon public record requests. Sure, she gave me the files, but it really was none of her business why I asked for one file as opposed to two. The truth is, when I originally asked for the file, I didnt believe I had time to look through other files and I didnt want the clerk to go to more trouble than necessary to produce records for me. I couldnt let it go even if she was just having a bad day. As journalists, we are taught to fight for our First Amendment rights and hold officials accountable who violate the public records and open government laws. Over four decades, Ive had some battles with officials over records. Ive lost my temper maybe two or three times. In the 1990s in Central Florida, an assistant city manager flatly refused to let one of our reporters see an annexation study. When the reporter told me that she was not allowed to see the study, I decided that I needed to pay the official a visit. I asked again for the study. And again, the assistant city manager refused to give it to us. Why wont you let us see it? Under the public records law, we are entitled to it. I cant. The City Commission hasnt seen it yet, he said. I told him I didnt care whether the commission had seen it or not that the states public records law doesnt allow a city government to delay the release of any public record merely because its elected government body has not reviewed it yet. The city manager was out of town; I continued trying to convince the assistant city manager that he had to give us the study. Finally, I tried another tactic. If the city attorney tells me that I can have the study, will you let us see it? After a few seconds, he said, yes. More hoops. I cant believe this #$%!, I said. I left City Hall and called the city attorney. Calm down, Tom, he said on the phone I told the city attorney that I didnt mean to be angry, but this was a no-brainer. He started to give me a spiel about the state law stipulating that the city has a reasonable amount of time to produce the record. Not days, I said. It was only a matter of copying about a dozen pages. He agreed, and he called the assistant city manager and advised him to release the study. I apologized to the assistant city manager for losing my temper, as I left with a copy of the study. To this day, I honestly believe he didnt want to give us the study because he didnt like being told by the press that under state law he had no choice. A few evenings later, I had a drink after work with an assistant state attorney I knew. The prosecutor didnt blame me for being upset and said the city official was lucky we didnt write a story saying that he had violated the Sunshine law. Maybe we should have. But since I did get the study within hours of asking for it, my boss and I decided that the matter was resolved. Thinking about that incident, I was reminded that as journalists we must strive to be vigilant when protecting the publics right to know. So the day after the clerk was rude to me, I left a message for her boss to call me. I guess I just wanted to vent. My phone call wasnt returned. That upset me, too. Guess Im marking my territory here. Maybe the clerk had a bad day. So Im not going to name names. But I will continue to be sensitive when it comes to protecting the publics right to know. And if I see that clerk again, she better be having a good day.EDITORIALThe best plan for fire stationLargo, Belleair Bluffs officials should pursue proposal 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey email@example.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli firstname.lastname@example.org Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey email@example.com Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier firstname.lastname@example.org Executive Editor: Tom Germond email@example.comProduction Manager: David Brown firstname.lastname@example.org Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter email@example.com Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure firstname.lastname@example.org Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond email@example.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd firstname.lastname@example.org Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl email@example.com Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

Marissas world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and shes called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the worlds most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits.

Photo courtesy of ROUNDER RECORDSAlison Krauss and Union Station perform Aug. 21 at Clearwaters Ruth Eckerd Hall.Krauss, Union Station to play REH By LEE CLARK ZUMPECLEARWATER Alison Krauss and Union Station will perform Sunday, Aug. 21, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road. Tickets range from $45 to $125. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. On April 12, Rounder Records released Paper Airplane, a new collection of songs from Krauss and Union Station, heavyweights in the bluegrass-country arena. A follow-up to 2004s Lonely Runs Both Ways, the album is Krauss first release since her acclaimed collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand, in 2007. That album earned six Grammys including Record Of The Year and Album Of The Year. Paper Airplane features the talents of Krauss on fiddle and lead vocals; Dan Tyminski on guitar, mandolin and lead vocals; Barry Bales on bass and harmony vocals; Ron Block on banjo, guitar and harmony vocals; and Jerry Douglas on dobro and harmony vocals. Produced by Krauss and Union Station, with studio legend Mike Shipley engineering and mixing, Paper Airplane boasts 11 songs. Decca Records describes the tracks as possessing both poignancy and austere beauty and says that they were chosen with impeccable taste and unerring intuition. Bringing it all together, though, was no easy task. Krauss was plagued by migraines during the production of Paper Airplane. There have been records that were tough to make, but this one took the cake, she reports on the Decca Records website. At one point, Dan said, I dont really know what to do unless youre jumping up and down because you love something or you hate it. I make judgments based on how something makes me feel, and because I wasnt physically well, everything was kind of gray and nothing sounded right. So after we recorded a bunch of things, we took a long break, because it just wasnt working. Working through the problems ultimately proved elucidating for Krauss and the band. Whatever formula we thought there was doesnt exist, Krauss said. It disappeared, especially this last time out. You cant trust your method; you cant rely on a method. The only thing you can do is record things that move you that have a connection with you and to represent yourself truthfully. Krauss explained that the things she sings about have to be true otherwise, she cant sing them with sincerity. Whether I write them or not, they have to be true for me to say it, and for the guys to play it. Krauss, 39, has already enjoyed a remarkable career, which spans a quarter century. She bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. Krauss has released 12 albums, including four solo albums and six with Union Station. She has contributed to several soundtracks, including O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain. She is credited with helping to revive interest in bluegrass. Krauss was only 14 when she released her first album, Different Strokes, on Fiddle Tunes label. The album features a collection of traditional bluegrass fiddle tunes. Rounder Records signed Krauss and she released her next album, Too Late To Cry, in 1987. This was followed shortly by her first group album with Union Station in 1989, Two Highways, which included traditional tunes such as Wild Bill Jones and Beaumont Rag as well as a bluegrass variation The Allman Brothers Midnight Rider. Because her contract with Rounder stipulated that she had to alternate between solo albums and albums with Union Station, in 1990 Krauss delivered Ive Got That Old Feeling which peaked at No. 75 on the country charts and earned the artist her first Grammy Award for the single Steel Rails. Since then, Krauss has continued to release a string of critically and commercially successful albums including Every Time You Say Goodbye (1992), I Know Who Holds Tomorrow (1994), So Long So Wrong (1997), Forget About It (1999), New Favorite) (2001), Lonely Runs Both Ways (2004) and Raising Sand (2007). Krauss work is deeply introspective and employs traditional modes to convey timely and topical messages.
