No surprise there. Thats been the case for the past 17 years. But unlike the past five years, councilors agreed to Vice Mayor Leslie Waters proposal to give Edmunds a 3 percent raise, which will come in the form of a $3,648 bonus. It will be discussed formally at the next City Council meeting on Aug. 14. Waters request came after Edmunds received glowing remarks from six of the citys seven councilors. Absent from the meeting was Patricia Plantamura. Out of a possible high score of 72, Edmunds received an average score of 71.3. Three councilors Waters, Jim Quinn and Mayor Jimmy Johnson gave him a perfect score. John Counts handed out a 71, Thomas Barnhorn delivered a 70.5 and Bob Matthews a 70. While other cities have needed to increase their millage rates, we have not, said Waters. Hes our first and only city manager and he has done a great job. But I would like to see more diversity added to city staff and we have that now with (new Recreation Director Becky Gunter). The city manager should also continue to monitor the Kitson project and the city park project. He has done an excellent job, said Matthews. We couldnt be more happier. Its amazing what weve accomplished through the leadership of this man. Hes a gentleman and a professional. Through your leadership you challenged staff to continue on without cutbacks and they managed to do so, said Barnhorn. We have no millage increase again and that makes me very happy as a taxpayer. Frank is an outstanding city administrator, said Quinn. The city is blessed to have him at the helm. I didnt give you anything. You earned it, said Johnson. He handles problems well and doesnt get excited. Its a sincere pleasure to work by his side. Hes doing a great job, said Counts. To me, the measure of success is a lack of complaints and other issues. Were lucky to have him. I greatly appreciate all the comments, said Edmunds. Its good to work together and I still enjoy coming to work. There are days that are still a challenge but I enjoy coming to work here in Seminole. Edmunds current base salary is $121,615. Frank Edmunds Photo by BOB McCLUREThis building at Seminole City Park will be transformed into the citys multi-purpose community building at some point in the near future. Plans for community building move ahead By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE If all goes as anticipated, the citys proposed community building could be funded as soon as late 2013, according to City Manager Frank Edmunds. Mike Mason, president of the architectural firm Mason Blau and Associates, outlined plans July 24 for the 16,845square-foot facility, which will be located at the former Public Works headquarters in Seminole City Park. I think this looks great, said Vice Mayor Leslie Waters. Theres been an outcry in the community for this type of building. Mason said the estimated $1 million renovation will include five components a community room, an area for the Seminole Historical Society, a facility office, existing garage storage and Public Works storage. The community room will be a 4,200square-foot multi-purpose area while the dedicated area for the historical society will be about 3,300 square feet. The facilities office, which will house a police unit during daytime hours, will use about 440 square feet. Public Works storage will take up another 856 square feet and Parks storage will use 654 square feet. The project would allow the city to have additional storage we do not have now, said Edmunds. This would be used during certain bad weather conditions like Tropical Storm Debby. Edmunds said Penny for Pinellas funds See BUILDING, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERThe latest numbers from Floridas Agency for Workforce Innovation shows Pinellas Countys unemployment rate in May at 10.0 percent, down from 10.1 in April. The best news comes from comparing the numbers to May of 2010, when the unemployment rate stood at 11.1 percent. In May 2011, 396,225 of the countys labor force of 440,136 were employed. A year ago, 392,280 of a labor force of 441,334 had jobs. The states unemployment rate for May was 10.5 percent high when compared to the national rate of 8.7 percent. Still, the states unemployment rate in May was the lowest since August 2009. Statewide, 980,000 of a labor force of 9,249,000 were without jobs. AWI director Cynthia R. Lorenzo said the June 17 report shows that Floridas economy is moving in the right direction. Statewide, the number of jobs is up 24,900 compared to a year ago. May is the eighth consecutive month with positive annual job growth since the decline began in July 2007. Leisure and hospitality industry experienced the most job growth, followed by private education and health services. Industries losing the most jobs over the year include government, construction and information. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metro area ranked No. 2 in job gains for the year with an increase of 4,700 jobs. The area includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The unemployment rate for the local metro area was 10.5 percent in May, down from 10.6 in April. The rate in May 2010 was 11.5 percent. The county with the highest unemployment in the state was Flagler at 13.8 percent, followed by MiamiDade at 13.7 and Hendry at 13.3 percent. Hernando County, which is in the local MSA, was in fourth place for the highest rate at 12.9 percent. Hillsborough County ranked No. 21 at 10.4, and Pasco County ranked No. 8 at 11.4 percent. Pinellas County tied with Taylor County for the No. 31 position out of 67 counties at 10.0 percent. Monroe County had the lowest unemployment rate in May, 6.3 percent, followed by Liberty at 6.5 percent and Walton County at 6.6 percent.County unemployment rate drops slightly in MayCharged up Photos courtesy of ROB SUMNERLeft: Progress Energy Communications Specialist Michele Cavallo and Seminole Mayor Jimmy Johnson stand next to a new plug-in electric vehicle charging station July 27 in the parking lot of the Seminole Recreation Center.

Commissioner Norm Roche voted no, supported by a number of residents from Palm Harbor, who are unhappy with a companion change that some say takes away local control. Commissioner John Morroni left the meeting early. The countys historic preservation code was established in 2008 and follows policy in the comprehensive plan, according to Planning Administrator Gordon Beardslee. An advisory committee was formed and its members coordinated with staff to develop amendments to the preservation code for unincorporated areas. The proposed amendments started through the approval process Oct. 13, 2011, with the first public hearing at the Local Planning Agency. Commissioners held a second public meeting on Jan. 24 followed by a work session on March 20. The scheduled second public hearing on May 22 was deferred until the July meeting. Beardslee went over several changes proposed to the definitions section; however, the most significant updates are contained in new code that governs the Historic Preservation Board, which becomes responsible for all historic and archaeological preservation matters. The HPB also will be formed to meet requirements of a Certified Local Government program, something not everyone agrees is a good thing. The HPB would be responsible to recommend designation of historic districts and individual landmark and landmark sites to the commission. The group also will review and act on Certificate of Appropriateness applications, advise and assist interested parties in historic preservation and review and make recommendations on nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. A certificate of appropriateness is required prior to the start of any exterior work or new construction affecting a designated landmark, landmark site or property within a historic district. Commissioner Susan Latvala asked how residents were supposed to know to apply for a COA before doing work on their property. Beardslee said the planning department used to send out a notice to property owners annually, but admitted, We havent been doing that lately. He said people who were aware that they own a historic property usually call before starting work. Others find out when they visit the Building Department, whose staff sends them to Planning for more information. Are you confident the Building Department is doing it, Latvala asked. Theyve really been good, Beardslee said. Currently historic sites and historic districts are designated with a zoning overlay, Beardslee explained. Designation of historic properties can be initiated by the property owner, their agents of the county planning director. The typical process includes a LPA hearing and a BCC hearing. The amended process allows for the historic designation for a district to be started by a property owner or the county planning director and requires approval by at least two-thirds of property owners within the proposed district. The process will include a public hearing by the HPB, the LPA and the BCC. The amended process for an individual historic site designation calls for initiation by the owners or the county planning director with the owners consent. Public hearings would be held by the LPA and BCC only.Changes in authorityAmending the historic preservation code takes the Downtown Palm Harbor Review Committee out of the process. Instead, the HPB will be responsible for all COAs in unincorporated locations. Beardslee told the commission that staff was recommending another amendment requiring HPB to inform Old Palm Harbor Main Street Board of any public hearings on COAs within Palm Harbors historic districts and to send a copy of the application. Some residents object to the change in Palm Harbor, saying the town is capable of continuing to take care of itself. Other north county residents, along with Roche, are concerned about the county involving itself in the federal Certified Local Government Program. The CLG program is a preservation partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the grassroots level. The program is jointly administered by the National Park Service and the State Historic Preservation Offices in each state, with each local community working through a certification process to become recognized as a Certified Local Government, according to information on the National Park Services website, www.nps.gov. CLGs then become an active partner in the Federal Historic Preservation Program and the opportunities it provides. Im not in support of this, Roche said. Let me clarify. I am in support of historic preservation, but Im more concerned about CLG. He said he was concerned about a countywide board taking power from Palm Harbor, and hes concerned about giving power to the federal government in local decisions due to the CLG. He said it was matter of principles. Several residents spoke in favor of the code changes, most members of the previous historic preservation advisory board. Cyndi Tarapani of Tarpon Springs, a preservation planner and former director of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, said the new code makes the process clearer and pointed out that nothing requires a property owner to do anything unless they plan to do something to their property. She said the code helps maintain Pinellas County as a unique place. Loretta Wyandt of Oldsmar, the first president of the Oldsmar Historic Preservation Committee, and Terry Fortner, history advocate from Ozona, also said they were in favor of the code amendments. Bostock said most of the concerns commissioners had asked staff to address had been cleared up. Its much better than when we started, she said. Commissioners also voted unanimously to amend the Old Palm Harbor Downtown zoning provisions of the countys land development code to reflect changes to the historic preservation code.PSTA board OKs mid-county centerST. PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board of Directors approved construction of the agencys first new customer service center in more than a decade. The board unanimously voted June 25 to build the new facility in Pinellas Park to help accommodate the increased demand for customer service brought about by years of increasing and record setting ridership. This is a great day for our riders. Its been more than 10 years since we opened our last Customer Service Center, Grand Central Station along Central Avenue in St. Petersburg and since that time our ridership has jumped by more than 32 percent, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Construction on the customer service center and restroom facility at PSTAs Pinellas Park transfer center behind the Shoppes at Park Place on 70th Avenue North is set to begin in late fall. The new facility will include space for a manned customer service booth where people will be able to buy bus passes, get PSTA materials and official PSTA identification cards. Another bonus for riders will be the new restrooms. Currently, PSTA only has service centers in Clearwater and St. Petersburg. This new facility will be the agencys first in the middle part of the county and will serve some of the agencys highest ridership routes that travel along U.S. 19, Park Street and 49th Street. The Pinellas Park transfer station currently serves seven bus routes (11, 19, 52, 74, 75, 97 and 444) and more than 2,000 rides every weekday. Officials expect completion of the new center by the summer of 2013. Initial cost for the facility is $300,000 with the city of Pinellas Park agreeing to pay $100,000 toward that cost. Briey

County officials argue that it all comes down to cost and quality of service. Pinellas County Commissioners voted 4-3 July 24 to negotiate a contract with Fitch and Associates LLC. of Platte City, Mo., for an operational analysis of the countys current system for delivery of emergency medical services, a plan presented by local firefighters, a plan from consultant, Integral Performance Solutions, as well as other scenarios. Commissioners Nancy Bostock, Neil Brickfield and Norm Roche voted no. The contract approval was the latest step in an ongoing process to find a more affordable way to deliver countywide emergency services.A brief historyThe county hired Integral Performance Solutions in 2009 to study the issue and make recommendations on ways to curb rising costs of first responder service. The firm delivered its recommendations in 2011. IPSs proposals, including elimination of advanced life support first responder units and replacing them with the use of larger advanced life support engines, proved unpopular. The plan to change how fire departments and fire districts would be paid for first responder services was met with stiff resistance. In response to the IPS plan, Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue and Lt. Scott Sanford, firefighter and paramedic with Palm Harbor Rescue, put together an alternative plan that advocates allowing firefighters and paramedics employed at local fire departments to provide ambulance service in lieu of the private company the county contracts with for exclusive transport service. The firefighters say their plan will save money. County staff says it will cost more. The two sides reached an impasse with both asking local state legislators to support amendments to the Special Act. At a special meeting on Nov. 30, 2011, Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, chair of the countys Legislative Delegation, strongly advocated creating a committee, representing both sides, to select a nationally recognized accounting firm to operationalize, analyze and compare costs of three variations of EMS service. Latvala recommended that the county pay for the study, which had a due date for completion of July 1. The EMS Fire Transport Evaluation Committee met on Dec. 22, 2011, and chose to do the operational study first followed by the cost analysis. According to staff notes, the committee canceled the original RFP and then worked through the countys Purchasing Department to release a new RFP. Former State Sen. James Sebesta chaired the EMS committee and the subcommittee that evaluated the four RFP responses. Other members included St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster, EMS Manager Craig Hare, Pinellas Park Fire Chief Doug Lewis, Clearwater Finance Director Jay Ravins, Lealman Fire District Capt. Jim Millican and Baycare Healthcare Administrator Kelly Triolo. Hare replaced Commissioner Karen Seel on the evaluation committee to avoid a voting conflict from serving on the committee to recommend and the commission to approve.Cost and bidding processThe No. 1 ranked firm, Fitch and Associates, submitted a bid for $298,600. The firm ranked No. 2, Tri Data, bid $99,639. The Ludwig Group ranked No. 3. The fourth was Tindale Oliver and Associates. Only four firms bid the job. According to Joe Lauro, county purchasing director, the EMS committee short listed two of the four bidders with Fitch and Associates and Tri Data asked to give an oral presentation. Before the oral presentation, Tri Data was on top with an average score of 808.57 to Fitch with 804.34. The next highest score was 504.36. At the end of the oral presentations, Fitch was on top with 868.57 to 798.57 for Tri Data. Lauro said the biggest reason Tri Data came out on top before the oral presentations was cost. Bostock said she was dismayed that in general the RFP process only gives price 15 percent of the bid score. Low cost is not dominant, she said. Price is not much of a factor at 15 percent. This is a controversial issue, Commissioner Ken Welch added. Im surprised there wasnt much background (on bid process) prior to going into it. Lauro said he explained the process to the committee more than once, including the process of using an oral presentation if two firms were very close in points. He said Tri Data was only five points ahead in the end. Five out of 1,000 (points) is almost nothing, he said. I do agree we need to move forward. The clock is ticking, Welch said. Nevertheless, Welch admitted there was some confusion with the issue. We need all to be on the same page or well have problems down the road, he said. Sebesta admitted that the RFP process was confusing and he didnt understand it at first. It took me a couple times to understand, he said. He also said he believed others on the committee had a hard time understanding it. Sebesta said he had expressed his concern to LaSala and county staff. I dont know if it was a good way to score or not, he said. Ive not had that much experience with scoring. Sebesta finally did figure it out, and said the method should help eliminate the possibility of fraud. Its difficult to manipulate and its also difficult to understand. It is what it is, he said. Staff did an excellent job. He agreed that on face value, it doesnt make sense to pick a bid for $300,000 over one for $99,000. But it did make sense, he said. If you watched the oral presentation, it was like night and day. The difference in the one picked is light years over the other one.Firefighters objectionsJuly 14th marked the one-year anniversary of this ugly process were in, Sanford said. He said while it was good that officials were starting to look more seriously at different transport methods, absolutely do not award this bid to Fitch. Supporters of fire-based transport object to hiring Fitch for several reasons. The first is the firms history of not recommending fire-based transport. Jay Fitch, president of Fitch and Associates, said generally his firm did not make recommendations one way or the other, but instead provides needed information so the client can make an informed choice. The firm uses software that allows data to be input to run simulations on a variety of scenarios using the same data to allow officials to compare different factors. Sanford brought up an implied prior relationship between Fitch and Paramedics Plus, the company that contracts with the county to provide ambulance transport. Paramedics Plus and Fitch have both served as faculty at past Pinnacle EMS Leadership & Management Conferences, he said. He also mentioned that the county had objected to Tri Data due to past work for the St. Petersburg Fire Department. Sanford questioned the bidding process, saying Hare had given Tri Data the lowest score possible, while giving Fitch and Associates the highest scores. Sanford and Millican prefer The Ludwig Group, but Sanford said Tri Data would be acceptable. Staff is driving the process toward Fitch, he said. If you pick Fitch youre virtually killing the option for fire-based transport. If fire-based wont work, if you pick Tri Data it will come back with the same answer. Commissioner Susan Latvala asked Sanford what the real problem was behind all the objections. Trust, Sanford said. Its not trust for us, Latvala replied. For us it is the budget and cost to provide the service. Commissioner Karen Seel said if Hares vote was eliminated from the process, Fitch still came out on top. Welch pointed out that St. Petersburg Mayor Foster and Pinellas Park Fire Chief Doug Lewis had scored Fitch higher. Sebesta said it was the best one, Welch said. Bostock was bogged down in trying to understand the RFP scoring process and questioned staffs numbers. Finally, Latvala made a motion to stop discussion and call the vote. Four of seven commissioners voted in support of Latvalas motion. Then talk moved to how many votes were needed to call the question. Finally, Welch retracted his vote, allowing the discussion to go forward. Seels suggestion to take a recess was not approved. Bostock continued to question staffs math. Bostock then asked County Attorney Jim Bennett if there was any possibility of a legal problem if the vote went through. Soon after, Brickfield made a motion to table the matter, which was defeated 4-3 with only Bostock and Roche joining Brickfield in the vote to put the decision off to another day.
4A SEB Beacon, August 2, 2012would be used to complete the project over the next several years. In the meantime, the city has applied for a pair of $500,000 grants that would provide alternate funding. One is for energy conservation in relation to the use of a photovoltaic system on the roof and the other for the use of hurricane hardening features. Edmunds said the community room would seat about 250 for banquets. We perceive it to be a high-use rental facility once its built, Edmunds said. It will include a warming kitchen that we dont have now in the recreation center. Mason said the building would feature a hip roof design and would most likely have electric doors to meet requirements in association with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Mason said separate air conditioning systems would be used for the community room and the historical society areas to allow separate operation.

Standing next to her is her horse Domee. By MAUREEN ZILLESSEMINOLE Longtime Seminole resident Mary Faith Urquhart was recently recognized for her volunteer work with the Seminole Riders 4-H Club when she received a Presidents Volunteer Service Award. The Presidents Volunteer Service Award is a Presidential recognition program for Americans of all ages, who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer service. The program recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard measured by the number of hours served over a 12-month period. The award is among many for Snakey, a second-generation 4-H Club leader with a special interest in horses. She was inducted into the 4-H Club Hall of Fame in 2005 for setting the standard for leadership by serving as a role model for responsibility, intelligence and community service, according to Jean Rogalsky of Pinellas County 4-H. Urquharts prize project has been the Kiwanis Clubs Horses for the Handicapped program, which she has run in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Seminole for more than 25 years. The program offers recreational and therapeutic rides for children and adults with varying types of disabilities. The riding facility is located at 9610 125th St. N., Seminole. Each Saturday, from September to June, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., riding classes are held at the facility. Like her fellow Kiwanians, Snakey values the contributions of volunteer groups. The world is in desperate need of good people and good volunteers, she said. -H teaches young people how to do this. It gets kids outside working with their hands doing something. I think everyone needs to find a group. The Kiwanis Club of Seminole meets every Thursday evening with dinner at 6 p.m. at Freedom Square between the Seminole Mall and Seminole Boulevard. The club also sponsors K-Kids in elementary school, Builders Club in middle school and Key Club in high school.

Casino ship readies for maiden voyage By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH The latest addition to the Johns Pass Village entertainment venue will be a cruise ship, with gaming on board. The Trade Winds Casino Cruise Line will operate a 200-foot, 425-passenger ship out of Hubbards Marina five days a week beginning the weekend of Aug. 24-25. Darin Eliscu of Chicago owns the ship. It was last based in Brunswick, Ga. Karen Donovan, the cruise lines director of sales and marketing, said the ships capacity would mean plenty of gaming opportunities for passengers. There will be 200 slot machines, plus all the Vegas-style games including roulette, craps, blackjack, and a sports book, she said. The boat will operate five days a week, typically offering three hours of gaming following a one-hour trip out into the Gulf of Mexico into international waters. Evening cruises running from 7 p.m. to midnight will be offered on Tuesday through Friday, with an extra hour added on Saturday. Midday trips also will be available on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Sundays will feature a matinee cruise from 4 to 6 p.m. The Trade Winds vessel will be the fourth gaming boat to operate out of Johns Pass and Madeira Beach in recent years. The others have all departed, going out of business for various reasons. Donovan, who also served with the other lines, said she believes this ship has a more promising outlook than any of the others. This is a different ship but is better than any weve had here before, she said. Ive been with the rest, and this is the best. The cruise line is very customer-service oriented, Donovan said, adding the crew and personnel were hired based on customer service. What we are selling is fun, she said. We want people to come out and have fun, and serving the passengers well is a big part of that.LaSala seeks interlocal agreement for nourishment By BOB McCLUREBELLEAIR BEACH Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala is calling for the beach towns and the county to enter into an interlocal agreement stating the beach communities and county are on the same page when it comes to meeting the requirements for state beach nourishment funding. LaSala, speaking at the Barrier Island Governmental Council meeting July 25, introduced a rough draft of the proposed agreement that he believes will strengthen the countys competitive stance for state nourishment funds. Typically, nourishment projects are paid for by federal, state and county funds. The breakdown is usually 40 percent federal, 40 percent state and 20 percent local. The interlocal agreement specifically calls for beach towns to maintain the required number of beach access parking spaces as spelled out in Section 62B-36 of the Florida Administrative Code in relation to the states Beach Management Program, or one parking space for every 53 feet of beach access. The interlocal agreement goes on to state that any city failing to maintain full eligibility for cost sharing shall reimburse the county for any funds the county spends nourishing the towns shoreline. The proposed agreement was spurred by a current problem facing the county. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of completing a nourishment project from Sand Key south to North Redington Beach. With the exception of Belleair Beach, all communities along the route have complied with the number of public parking spaces necessary to qualify for state nourishment funding. Since Belleair Beach has not reached the minimum number, the county is faced with a $200,000 bill from state officials once the project is complete in November. LaSala has feverishly been trying to get Belleair Beach leaders to rewrite their parking codes to allow for more public parking near beach accesses. This is an elephant in the living room, said LaSala. Unfortunately, the state is not going to give us a pass on this. We have got to provide access parking to the public if were going to continue this project without penalty. LaSala went on to say that Belleair Beach has an obligation to the other beach communities and the county to comply. This (state beach nourishment funding) is a very competitive program, said LaSala. Towns compete up and down the east coast and other Florida communities for federal and state dollars. LaSala said in his opinion Belleair Beach needs to put the money in its budget to meet the parking requirements. The interlocal agreement would require Belleair Beach to do so. LaSala said Belleair Beach has been given a proposal from the county to add parking spaces along Gulf Boulevard but the city has not agreed to it. If the city chooses not to do this, it jeopardizes our standing (with the state officials) in a highly competitive process that is going to become evenPhoto by BOB McCLUREPinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala addresses members of the Barrier Island Governmental Council on July 25.

Once we lose it, it will be difficult to regain. Weve got to hang together, LaSala added. You either hang together or you hang separately. Belleair Beach Mayor Kathy Mortensen suggested the county help her city with the issue by developing parking lots like it has done in other beach communities. Were residential, she said. We have no commercial property. We would be appreciative of any county assistance. LaSala said he disagreed. Their (Belleair Beach) City Council is not agreeable to changes in its parking policy on the western end of residential streets, he said. All we need is 10 to 20 spaces if youre willing to change your parking policy. We all have a stake in this, said Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos. The last storm showed us Mother Nature has a mind of her own and we have to all work together on this. Cretekos suggested sending the agreement back to the respective beach town staffs and get back with suggestions to county staff in two weeks.

Terri Botterbusch, special agent with the United States Department of Homeland Security Investigations, filed a criminal complaint and request for a search warrant in the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. United States Magistrate Judge Thomas B. McCoun III signed it on July 20. Botterbusch, a nine-year employee of HSI and currently assigned to the Tampa office, detailed her investigation into Ronald William Brown in an evidence of findings report. Brown, 57, of Largo was arrested July 20 and taken to the Pinellas County Jail. Botterbusch said that Brown and another man had conspired to kidnap a child and that Brown possessed child pornography. The report begins with the May 23 arrest of Michael Arnett, who was taken into custody by HSI in Kansas City for the production of child pornography. Investigators discovered that Arnett had been communicating and exchanging child pornography materials with other individuals, using online chat programs, as well as engaging in extremely discussions regarding kidnapping, sexually abusing, murdering and eating of children, the report said. Agents said Arnett used Yahoo chat to discuss the abuse of children and to send and receive images and videos of child pornography. Agents with HSI Boston recovered thousands of lines of chat between Arnett and others and identified one individual with whom Arnett had discussed abuse, abduction, murder and cannibalism of children. Agents say Arnett and Brown chatted from about April 2011 to October 2011 and provided a sample of the chats. Some are graphic in nature. They referred to a male child, who Brown said he had been watching, and described in detail what Brown would like to do to the child. Brown also asked for advice on the best methods to use. According to the logs, at one point in the chat Brown was asked, Any luck with your boy? Brown replied, No, I still want to eat him though. He was looking good in his last pic that I got. HSI agents requested through the courts that Yahoo provide information about Browns account. HSI email address was found listed in the 20112012 Pinellas County Schools speaker directory. He was listed as a puppetry speaker for grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Agents also requested information from local law enforcement for any reports involving Brown. Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported that Brown had been stopped for a traffic violation on July 23, 1998. The deputy had observed boys underwear between the front seats. Brown told him that he used the underwear for puppet shows, dressing puppets in underwear. Largo Police Department reported investigation of a complaint against Brown on June 9, 2010, about suspicious activity with Brown having young boys in his vehicle. Officers determined that Brown had permission from the parents to take the children to church with him. According to the dispatch notes, no written report was filed on the incident, the complainant believed she observed Brown throwing what she described as a dildo underneath his trailer. The complainant also stated that Brown had all the boys skateboards and bikes locked inside his trailer. The complainant stated that one of the boys may have been violated by Brown because of how he was defending Brown. The complainant stated that she observed Brown to be off. In her report, Botterbusch said she had searched on Google for Browns screen name and found his profile on the website, cutedeadguys.net. Brown reportedly stated that he was from Florida and among HSI interests stated, I love them young and dead. I enjoy them fresh, but like to see them displayed in their caskets too. His biography reportedly stated, He has a strong interest in necro since youth. Botterbusch said she believes that Browns reference to necro is a reference to necrophilia, an abnormal and deviant sexual interest in sex with dead people and/or an erotic attraction to corpses. On July 19, a federal search warrant was served at Browns residence in WHSIpering Pines Mobile Home Park, 7501 142nd Ave. N. in Largo. Botterbusch reported that when agents and law enforcement made contact with Brown he was immediately removed from the residence placed on the ground and handcuffed without incident. Agents seized multiple pieces of electronic media, including a computer, CDs and DVDs, micro disks, VHS tapes and a thumb drive. The report states that agents found images of child pornography, images of children engaged in bondage and images of children that appeared to be deceased. Agents also reported finding a CD in Browns bedroom dresser sock drawer of additional images of child pornography, child erotica-pre-pubescent boys in underwear, images of what appear to be deceased children and a missing child flier. During an interview, agents say that Brown did confirm the use of the screen name contained in the chat logs. Brown told agents that he chats with several individuals about strangling children and that he was part of a strangle group on Yahoo, the report said. Brown stated that those are his fantasies and told the agents he would never really do this. Brown told agents that the person he chatted with on Yahoo was into killing and cannibalism of children, especially toddlers, according to the report. He also allegedly admitted discussing a boy Brown knows from church and telling Arnett that if I was going to someone he would probably eat that boy. Why, I dont know, Brown reportedly told the agents. He told agents that he had discussed killing, dismembering and eating (the boy from church), but it was just a fantasy and he could never and would never hurt anyone. He also said that Arnett had traveled to Florida and tried to contact Brown on Yahoo, but Brown had not responded to his message. Brown also told agents that he communicated with an individual that he believes is located in Germany, who had sent him images of dead boys and boys engaged in bondage, which Brown said he deleted. Brown reportedly asked that the individual stop sending the photos, but they kept coming. Brown told agents that he had forgotten about the CD in HSI sock drawer and that his interest was not in child pornography. It is morgue photos. Brown owns a puppet company and performed puppet shows for children as a side job. He performs at schools, churches and birthday parties.

DAILEYCLEARWATER With its budget already stretched nearly to the breaking point, Pinellas County would be hard-pressed to throw itself an extravagant centennial party. But sisters Shirley Moravec and Joan Bates, granddaughters of Pinellas pioneer S.S. Coachman, want all Pinellas residents to remember that this year marks our countys 100th anniversary of independence from Hillsborough County. When Hillsborough County was chartered, in 1834, it was much larger than it was today, and the Pinellas Peninsula was unofficially known as West Hillsborough. Almost from the start, there were West Hillsborough residents who wanted to secede from Hillsborough. After all, it was a two-day buggy ride from southern Pinellas to the county seat in Tampa. To add insult to injury, West Hillsborough residents paid a disproportionate share of county taxes but were shortchanged when it came to such county amenities as roads and schools. The taxes went to Tampa and never made their way back, Bates said. In 1906, to appease the growing number of secessionists in West Hillsborough, the county built a shell road from Tampa to Ozona, but that was of little use to the residents at the southern end of the peninsula. To appease them, the county built a bridge from mid-peninsula to the barrier islands. But that plan backfired when the flimsy bridge collapsed under the weight of a farm wagon and was never rebuilt. The secession movement prevailed and, on May 23, 1911, Gov. Albert Gilchrist signed a proclamation allowing West Hillsborough to become Pinellas County. On Nov. 14, 1911, residents voted nearly 31 in favor of independence, which became official on Jan. 1, 1912. When a new county is created, its most populous city usually becomes the county seat. In Pinellas County that would have been St. Petersburg. But because Clearwater is more centrally located, St. Petersburg allowed it to become the temporary county seat until a proper courthouse could be constructed in St. Petersburg. But Clearwater residents figured that, if they could build a courthouse before St. Petersburg did, Clearwater would remain the county seat for at least another 20 years. They entered into a contract for a courthouse to be built in 30 days, where Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church now stands, at a cost of $3,750. S.S. Coachman and his brother, E. Horace Coachman, would supply the lumber from a site near Henry Plants hotel, which is now called the Belleview Biltmore. St. Petersburg residents were furious and tried to stop the construction. They swore out an injunction and tried to have it served on S.S. Coachman, but Coachman heard that a process server was looking for him. He got into a rowboat and rowed out into the Gulf, out of sight and out of reach, Moravec said. When legal methods failed to stop the construction, St. Petersburg residents began to consider illegal actions. But when word that a drunken mob from St. Petersburg might be coming to burn down the unfinished courthouse reached Clearwater, the men of Clearwater got their hunting rifles and took turns guarding the construction site. They started building around the clock, Moravec said. The women made coffee and sandwiches for the workers, and the courthouse that was supposed to take 30 days was completed in 10 days. A century later, Clearwater is still the Pinellas County seat. S.S. Coachman, a successful Clearwater merchant, was elected the first chairman of the new County Commission. The five-story Coachman Building that he built in downtown Clearwater still stands and its elevator operator, Joseph Hatchett, became one of Floridas first black lawyers and later served as a justice of the Florida Supreme Court. The downtown land where Coachman Park is now located belonged to E. Horace Coachman, whose house, Bay Hall, stood where Clearwaters main library now stands, and the cedar tree he planted can still be seen. He said that he couldnt afford to donate the land to the city, but would sell it at a bargain price. When city officials said they couldnt afford even the bargain price, he opined that they would have a good chance of getting a loan from either the Bank of Clearwater or the First National Bank. He didnt mention that he served on the board of directors of both banks. In 2000, the late S.S. Coachman was honored as one of 100 influential Floridians. The circa 1850 log cabin that he and his wife, Jessie, bought from the pioneer McMullen family in 1901 can still be seen at Heritage Village, the countys 21-acre historical museum in Largo.Editors note: Information for this story came from Shirley Moravec and Joan Bates and was confirmed through different written historical accounts of Pinellas County.Photo by LESTER R.

The making of PinellasCentennial storiesGrowth of Pinellas over the decades By SUZETTE PORTERResults of the 2010 census made Pinellas County record books. It is the first time since 1890 that population actually declined. In fact, over the past 120 years, population has increased 152,403 percent, from 601 in 1890 to 916,542 in 2010. Prior to Pinellas becoming its own county, growth was rapid with a 328 percent jump recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau in the first 10 years, followed by 213 percent growth spurt in the second decade. A big population spurt of 164 percent came between 1910 and 1912 the year Pinellas officially became the states 48th county. The population continued to more than double each decade until the Depression years and the end of the countys real estate boom. In the year 1920, the population was split about 50 percent between urban and rural dwellers. Between 1930 and 1940, growth slowed to only 48 percent. People started moving to urban areas, leaving only 17 percent living in rural areas. People started moving to the county in greater numbers again with a 73 percent growth between 1940 and 1950. By 1950, only 13.5 percent lived in rural areas. The last population boon happened between 1950 and 1960 with growth of 135 percent. Nearly 9 percent lived in rural areas.

Along Gulf Boulevard studied art in high school and was awarded a scholarship to a local community college for her talents. After college, she continued her art mostly as a hobby. To date, she has worked in all types of mediums and has sold paintings and murals across the U.S. Our family has had someone serving in every war since World War I, said Davis. Two of my grandfathers served, one in World War I and the other in World War II. An uncle was MIA in Alaska during the Korean War, another uncle served during Vietnam and my dad served in the Coast Guard. My son is serving in the Army and recently returned from Afghanistan. I love my country and this is one way to give back, she added. She told me that very recently the remains of the plane her uncle and others were in were found in Alaska. The plane and members on board were MIA for 59 years. The tail section of the aircraft was found along with other debris. The process of DNA testing can now begin. A local contractor, Brian Cunningham of Cunningham Contracting Services of Seminole, has donated the positioning and placement of the mural.

According to a report from the Sheriffs Office, Nadia ONeal, 51, of Indian Shores was booked into the Pinellas County Jail just before 2:50 p.m. on three counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, three counts of insurance fraud and one count of knowingly employing any person to perform duties outside the scope. ONeal is owner of Nu Smile Dental, 13611 Park Blvd., Seminole. Detectives originally received an anonymous complaint stating that ONeal was obtaining narcotics illegally and committing insurance fraud at her Seminole office. Detectives said that ONeal would advise her staff that they were out of triazolam, which is used to perform sedation procedures within the dental office. She then would instruct staff to call in a prescription with her orders for triazolam, using employees names from the clinic. The employees health insurance was used during the purchase of the prescriptions at a reduction in cost and the employees never received the medications. The triazolam was administered to patients at the dental office and the patients were charged for the sedation treatment. Triazolam is a schedule C IV benzodiazepine narcotic used by dentists as an oral sedation on anxious dental patients. Investigators determined that the incidents occurred on the following dates: July 26, 2011 Triazolam .25mg 20 pills Aug. 9, 2011 Triazolam .25mg 20 pills Sept. 16, 2011 Triazolam .25 mg 20 pills Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Narcotics Division at 582-2828. ONeal was released from the Pinellas County Jail about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday on bonds totaling $35,000.DUI checkpoint nets 17 arrestsLARGO Seventeen people were arrested on 22 charges July 27-28 at a DUI checkpoint in Largo. Pinellas County sheriffs deputies and Largo police teamed up for this months operation, dedicated to Jack Schaffer, who was killed due to the actions of an impaired driver on Dec. 12, 2007. The Largo Police Departments Traffic Homicide Team investigated the crash. Deputies reported that 822 vehicles passed by with 255 vehicles diverted into the checkpoint set up in the parking lot of Badcock Furniture, 900 Missouri Ave N. Average time was 1 minute, 44 seconds. Two people were charged with DUI, five for driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license, seven for possession of marijuana, three for possession of paraphernalia, two for violation of probation and three for no valid drivers license. In addition, 14 vehicles were impounded and 35 citations were issued.Arrest made in Clearwater womans murderLARGO A Clearwater man was arrested at his place of employment in Largo at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25, on a charge of murder in the first degree and grand theft of a motor vehicle. Thomas Hampton Frederick, 23, who jail records list as a transient, is accused of murdering Adrianne F. Robert, 29, of unincorporated Clearwater. He is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail. Her male roommate, Jay Laffue, found Robert unresponsive in the bathroom of her apartment, when he came home just after 3:30 a.m., Saturday, July 14. She was partially clothed wearing only a bra. She had been stabbed once in the upper left chest. Homicide detectives backtracked her movements from the night before and determined that she had been out with Laffue, drinking at the bar at Diamond Dolls, an adult establishment located at 16361 U.S. 19 N. The two walked to Diamond Dolls from their shared apartment because they had been drinking earlier at the apartment. While at Diamond Dolls, they struck up a conversation with a male customer, later identified as Frederick. Detectives said that Robert and Laffue did not know him prior to the encounter. Just after 1:30 a.m., Robert decided to walk back home. Video from Diamond Dolls shows her leaving the establishment. The video also shows a black male catching up with her and giving her a black shawl that she had left behind on a chair. The two continue to walk away together on the northbound sidewalk back toward her apartment. Detectives said there were signs of a struggle on her body and in the apartment. Gualtieri said there was evidence she had been sexually assaulted. A portion of the sheet on her bed had been cut out. There was no sign of forced entry at the apartment. Her personal car, an orange Jeep was missing from the apartment complex parking lot. It was found later on July 14 by Largo police officers. Based upon investigative information, the video, phone records, taxicab company cooperation, and a Field Interview Report from Clearwater Police, Frederick was identified and established as a possible suspect by July 16. However, research showed he had no real criminal record and no DNA evidence of record. Crime Scene Investigators gathered DNA from the crime scene, and deputies began watching the suspect beginning on July 16. Deputies were then able to obtain other evidence, a cigarette butt, which yielded DNA. The DNA evidence was sent to the Pinellas County Forensic Lab for evaluation and was returned July 25, establishing Frederick as the murder suspect. Deputies arrested Frederick without incident at his employer, Hit Promotion Products, which is located off Bryan Dairy Road and 114th Avenue in Largo. Gualtieri said the outcome of this investigation was due to modern technology and good old-fashioned police work. He said the horrific violence of this random act was of great concern to all involved in the case. He credited all agencies and investigators for their hard work and individual contributions.Man uninjured in helicopter crashLEALMAN A 60-year-old man escaped without injuries from his two-seater helicopter after it crashed just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 24. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Wayne Park, the pilot and owner, was moving the helicopter to another location on his property, A1 Key & Safe, 4550 35th St. N., Lealman. Deputies and firefighters, who responded to the scene, say Parker had started the helicopter to move it by hovering to another location when he reportedly lost a tail rotor and went into a spin crashing into a fence. Parker escaped without serious injuries. The FAA and the NTSB were notified and will conduct the investigation. Fire officials say no fuel was spilled, and there was no fire.Police look for assault suspectsCLEARWATER Clearwater Police were searching for two assault suspects who punched a referee at a soccer game on July 22, according to a police Facebook report. During a club soccer game at Joe DiMaggio Field, 610 Old Coachman Road, two players became angry with a referee over a call and attacked him, punching him in the back of the head, the report said. The referee fell to the ground and received serious but non-life-threatening injuries to his shoulder. The two players fled the scene in a white Mercedes and the referee was taken to a local hospital. The suspects were originally misidentified because they showed false ID cards in order to play on the field. The correct names are Timothy Kerr, 31, and Dale Lewis, 33. Because of this, the league had inaccurate names for players that they provided to police. The league leases the fields from the city and is not a city co-sponsored league. At one point in the search for the suspects, police pulled over a white Mercedes, but the names on the identifications given to police did not match the names of the two suspects. The suspects were therefore released. The police were working on relocating the suspects.Officers help secure area as manatees mateCLEARWATER Clearwater Police Officers were dispatched to the east side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway on July 19 around 6 p.m. after numerous reports of multiple beached manatees. Upon arrival, officers contacted the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, which dispatched emergency personnel to the scene. As it turned out, there were eight to 10 manatees mating in shallow water, according to a police Facebook report. This caused many citizens to stop and park along the Causeway, to view the event. Due to the large crowd of vehicular and foot traffic, aquarium staff asked CPD to help secure the waterline, which was done using crime scene tape. This prevented citizens from entering the water and protected the manatees.Driver of rollover crash extracted from vehiclePINELLAS PARK A rollover crash in front of the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport tied up traffic for about an hour starting at 3 p.m. July 24, as firefighters tried to extract the injured driver safely from his vehicle. The accident involved a 2003 Jeep and a large delivery type truck, said Pinellas Park Fire Department spokesman Lt. Gary Berkheimer. Pinellas Park firefighters extricated the driver of the Jeep with assistance from Largo and airport firefighters in about 20 minutes. Due to the drivers injuries, the extraction process was more difficult, Berkheimer said. The Jeep driver was transported to a local hospital for further treatment, but paramedics stated that his injuries were non-life-threatening. The delivery truck driver was not injured. Eastbound traffic on Roosevelt Blvd. was rerouted around the airport.

Viewpoints 11A Beacon, August 2, 2012 In another attempt at waistline reduction Im following the dictates of Eat to Live expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman. He is big on fresh fruits and vegetables, some of which Ive barely heard of. I did some research on various Fuhrman-recommended foods, and between the real-life sources and my own imagination, heres what I came up with. BOK CHOY. This is Chinese cabbage. The words mean white vegetable. Bok choy comes in different forms. I asked the produce guy at my store to show me bok choy, and he abruptly assumed a karate stance and muttered words that sounded like Fu mwang titsu! I later learned that bok choy is a secret password for an international undercover society aimed at flushing out people who mistakenly believe all Asians have three kidneys. The produce guy later apologized, and gave me his favorite bok choy recipe, which is flavored with lichi nuts. HUMMUS. When I was a child, we had no hummus. Ive tried to blame my personal deficiencies on a hummus-deprived upbringing, but no one listens. By the time I reached 40, hummus was sweeping the USA, thanks mostly to political and military developments in the Mideast, which I would explain if anyone cared, which is unlikely. Hummus is an Arab word meaning chickpeas. Thats exactly what hummus is cooked and mashed chickpeas, mixed with tahini. And what is tahini, you may ask. It is ground-up sesame seeds. Hummus can be served in many ways, but I usually see it as a dip at cocktail parties, Syrian-Lebanese folk festivals and U.N. wrestling matches. Hummus is beloved by Jews and Arabs alike, and has been suggested as a common ground on which enduring Mideast peace can be built. That idea is a crock of hummus, according to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. ARUGULA. The word arugula is Italian and means the gargling sound an old man in Tuscany makes when sampling Chianti wine. Arugula is a spicy herb that is usually mixed with milder salad ingredients. It was popular in Italy and France for many years, but came to the USA in the 1990s. Other names for arugula are rugola, garden rocket, Roman rocket and Trastevere spinach. From the first century onward, arugula seeds have been used as a component in aphrodisiacs. So if your wife suddenly starts feeding you lots of arugula, youre either in trouble or in luck. SHIITAKE. If youre wandering the produce section and spy a collection of dark brown splotches youd rather not look at, let alone eat, youre probably viewing a display of shiitake mushrooms. Dont be deterred these babies taste great. They have a chewy, meaty flavor that can make you think of that longago weekend in Yokosuka when an off-duty chef named Kitty-san took you home and showed you flavors and favors you never dreamed existed. In Japanese, shii means from a hardwood tree and take means mushroom. These mushrooms grow on oak logs and seldom touch dirt, so a light washing is usually the only preparation you need before tossing them into a saut pan. TOFU. Like so many other nutritious foods, tofu is made from soybeans, water and a coagulant. (If someone showed you a bowlful of soybeans, would you recognize the stuff? I wouldnt. But the diet books and cookbooks are full of soy and soybeans and their spinoffs. For several years there was a tofu festival in Los Angeles, until it got so big they had to disband it for lack of room.) Tofu originated in ancient China. (Didnt any foods ever originate in Pittsburgh, or Duluth?) East Asian Buddhists love tofu, as do most vegans. Tofu comes in soft or regular varieties. So now you know. FLAXSEED. If youre not already using flaxseed in your diet, youd better buy some before the supply runs out. A flaxseed boom has taken place in the past few years because of reports that it can protect us from heart disease, diabetes, cancer and terminal conniptions. Flaxseed contains omega-3 fatty acids and lignans (estrogen and antioxidants). The emperor Charlemagne required his subjects to consume flaxseed, which comes in both brown and gold. Besides providing seeds, flax is used to produce linen. Archaeologists tell us flax was grown in 30,000 B.C., both in Babylon and in the vacant lots of East St. Louis, Mo. CILANTRO. Heres another flavoring agent from ancient China that can be used to spice up your salads with its pungent odor and taste. Cilantro is a member of the carrot family. Its nicknamed Chinese parsley and is actually just coriander, which has long been used as an ingredient of gin. Some psychologists believe that persons who drink gin while ingesting coriander later become disciples of Benny Hinn, and are known as gin Hinners.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Bok choy, tofu and other mystery foodsarchitecture and fun for the family. Some who oppose the Hotel even though they have not offered an alternative want you to question the economic viability of the project. Suffice it to say, the partners and their lenders are willing to assume that risk as evidenced by their investment of both time and money, and that the most highly respected consulting firm in the domestic hotel business has thoroughly studied the project and concluded it can be successful. We urge you to keep these things in mind as the issues of tax abatement and restoration of the hotel come before the Town Commission in the coming weeks. Jim Betts BelleairObey the laws of FloridaRe: Voters should have their say, editorial, July 24Editor: The title of this editorial is exactly correct and no thinking person would disagree. While the editorial makes several valid points relative to every newly elected office holder anywhere in the country theres no doubt that they all face a learning curve, which has always been the case. However, Pinellas County faces a different and unique set of challenges that must be addressed. The facts relative to those challenges are clear based on the voters having had their say in 1996 when they passed the Eight is Enough charter amendment by more than 72 percent of the voters. While that amendment became part of the charter in 1997 it was challenged in court and the Pinellas County Commission has ignored the amendment ever since. The Supreme Court in 2002 took up the challenge and made a decision that was completely misread by the Commission. As a result, the commission has ignored the legally passed and adopted 1996 charter amendment. On May 12, 2012, this year, the current Supreme Court receded from that earlier decision and declared that term limits enacted by county charters are constitutional based on the home rule provisions of the Florida Constitution. That decision applies to all 67 Florida counties, including Pinellas County. Unfortunately, the majority of our county commission has chosen to ignore the Supreme Courts decision, which resulted in a lawsuit filed by residents of the county and is in the courts today. The question we face today is whether four commissioners have the right to ignore a Supreme Court decision and effectively suppress the voters overwhelming approval of the Eight is Enough Charter Amendment passed in 1996. Our system is based on the rule of law, not the rule of men. Unfortunately, four members of the commission seem to think that they are above the law and, based on their conduct, have chosen to ignore and defy the Florida Supreme Court for their own personal benefit. Current Pinellas County Commissioners are paid between $87,000 and $99,000 a year, including benefits and perks, which they are clearly determined to protect, despite the courts decision, which is now the law in Florida. That compensation is well in excess of what most county residents enjoy, particularly with respect to those of us who are retired. While we may debate and discuss the need for term limits in Florida, nevertheless we are all required to obey the laws in Florida, including the 1996 charter amendment as it was passed and became effective in January 1997, more than15 years ago.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Drivers SeatBob Driver Fire engines and U.S. flagsEditor: Old Glory and firefighting are synonymous. Has one ever witnessed a fire engine at a Memorial Day parade with the bell and siren sounding? Beautiful sound. Dont you agree? Even more so, the fire engine needs a flag hung on it to further promote the holiday and bolster the sense and pride of being an American, on a day whereby all Americans remember the hardship of military conflict. Mine was Korea. I admire the effort of those in the Seminole Fire Department for displaying Old Glory on their apparatus. I too did this for over 27 years as a paid captain in North Jersey. This day was special and the flag was so important for the citizens to see while the parade was moving. Thanks for doing this for everyone. I call it lack of communication, when I read and watched on TV, the problem that was blown up because preplanning was not standard operating procedure. The elected officials of Seminole took it on the chin for something that was not their fault. The fire service is well aware of the term, (preplanning) and this was the reason for the problem. No one gave orders to fly the flag off the right fender of the vehicle. This is the proper place to hang a flag. On the side or rear is discourteous and the left fender causes problems for the chauffeur to see oncoming traffic. I was glad to see and hear that Leslie Waters, vice mayor of Seminole, had an important part in calming this situation down where everyone on both sides ended up in a harmonious, patriotic mood befitting the meaning of Memorial Day. God bless our firefighters, our country and the city of Seminole. Each one is so important to the others. All three are needed if we are to remain safe here in the jewel of south Florida Seminole. Say a prayer for the 343 who did not come out of the collapsed towers in NYC. Art Sholty SeminoleWake up, lady RepublicansRe:Power gets what power wants, by Mary Jo Melon, July 26Editor: No, no and no, Mary Jo. No more will women and girls be forced off the sidewalk for someone who holds us in foul contempt. No more, when the Equal Rights Amendment passes, making all sex discrimination a violation of the U.S. Constitution. And it will pass because the USA must quickly drop its current cruel, dismissal of American females, blacks, and others theyve assigned to second-class. USA will be forced to change, as it grows, aware that this stuff just doesnt sell overseas. Every nation since WW II already has ERA wording. Some found it boosted their gross domestic product by 9 percent. The United Sates will have to change from its Republican image of well do what we want to you, and let the devil take the hindmost. Accountability? Both political parties share the blame for that image, but its Republicans who continue to treat us 99 percenters and the 52 percent of the 99 percent who are women, badly, at 72 percent of a mans wage same job and same credentials or better! Republicans are most of the ones shutting an eye to the massive numbers of male military rapes of their female comrades: lying to cover them up. And the medical rapes now required by GOP legislation requiring all manner of involuntary vaginal invasions by transvaginal probes, purposeless except to stall pregnancy terminations guaranteed by the Supreme Court. Did you know Republicans filed 916 bills in just three months, closing shelters for rape crisis and domestic violence; closed Head Start. Worse: In 2012, Republicans voted down the vaunted Paycheck Fairness Act that would have equalized male and female salaries. They did this again, just as in every other prior year! Maybe they dont need the womans vote because theyve already bought the elections; just wondering. Why do Republicans pretend these are not indisputable facts? Wake up, lady Republicans. Dont they realize theres a price theyll pay in November? These and other cruel Republican realities are fostering a desertion by women from the GOP. In fact, why are you still playing patsy with them, shooting yourself and your daughters (and your sons) in the foot? Facts still matter. Fact-informed women are enraged. Hundreds of thousands of women and men are determinedly making their way to the U.S. capitol on Aug. 18 where the free WeAreWoman.us Rally will explode with voices too loud to ignore. Up for a womens freewheeling speakout? Ill be the loudest one. Every day now, womens roars grow stronger, bolder. If you dont hear their chorus and resonate with them, then you are reading and watching the impotent main media! Republicans (and some Dems voting with those trolls, male and female), deserve their misbegotten candidates smug and cruel. Better wake up. The womens revolution has begun. Sandy Oestreich North Redington BeachA perspective regarding the Biltmore hotel property Editor: A few weeks ago, some residents of Belleair and the surrounding community received an email from a former town official urging them to oppose the restoration of the towns distinctive historical landmark, the beloved Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The writer cited the request by the developers of the restoration project for tax abatement under the towns historical preservation ordinance and the towns need for additional capital to upgrade its infrastructure as the principal reasons for making his request. He indicated the hotel would pay no taxes for 10 years which is not true and declined to mention that beginning the eleventh year, property taxes from the hotel would increase dramatically, generating more than twice as much annually than any other authorized use on that property. His comments sound shortsighted to me and destructive of the very reason that many of us chose to purchase property in Belleair. We must remember that the hotel was here long before most of the rest of the town. For the past 16 months, I have been a member of an ad hoc committee of approximately a dozen residents of Belleair, representing a cross-section of the town, that has met at least once a month for the purpose of objectively evaluating the various options that could be considered by the owners of the 23-acre parcel upon which the hotel sits. Suggestions have ranged from parkland to single-family residences to townhomes to condominiums to a museum, to an appropriate restoration of the unique, all wooden historical structure. Someone even suggested an indoor shopping mall. The owners themselves developed an attractive site plan for townhomes, but abandoned the idea because they didnt believe it to be economically feasible. The parkland idea was not seriously considered because it required ownership by the town, which would then incur new maintenance costs, and would totally remove a 23-acre parcel from the property tax duplicate. Development as residential property appeared doubtful because of the depressed state of the market and the land costs totaling somewhere between $10 million to $12 million dollars that would push the necessary selling price of single family homes or townhomes to a level above what the market would bear. Condominium towers might be economically feasible if the units sold but would put further pressure on already depressed unit values within the RPD. Does it really make sense to add additional housing units to an already severely depressed market? In addition, to the best of our knowledge, no one had approached the owners with a site plan and purchase offer including the necessary financing to close a deal until the Biltmore partners asked to enter into an agreement for an option to buy. An agreement was reached and the option, which expires at the end of September, was granted. In the committees opinion, the full restoration of the hotel, as proposed by the Biltmore partners, and its projected future expansion, represent, in the long run, the best opportunity to maximize revenues to the town through water and electrical fees and, once the abatement expires, huge increases in ad valorem property taxes, far more than any other suggested use. In addition, Pinellas County would begin to benefit immediately from sales and bed taxes generated by the economic engine of an elegant, dynamic restored Belleview Biltmore. And, of course, what many have always considered to be the soul of the town would be brought back to life, providing fine dining, remarkable venues for meetings and social events, and an historic destination site for conventions, seminars and conferences, stunning Pleasetypeletterstotheeditor(orprint legibly)andincludeyourname,townofresidence,phonenumberandsignatureand mailtoTampaBayNewspapers,9911 SeminoleBlvd.,Seminole,FL33772.Emailsshouldincludetownofresidenceand telephoneandbesenttotgermond@TBNweekly.com.Wewillnotprinttheletter writersphonenumber.

The traditional black-and-white Taoist symbol of the bright sun (yang) intertwined with the shadowy moon (yin) represents the idea that polar forces work not in opposition but in complement: Good cheer balances grouchiness like light informs shadow. One cannot exist without the other. The other day at sea was a case in point. Even the sky got into the act. Clouds rose out of the horizon like puffy white fingers until we seemed to be cupped in a giant celestial hand. Misty fingertips budded off and ascended, casting shadows across otherwise sunny seas. Six dolphins darted willynilly among the shadows, having breakfast on fish shuffled along the flood current flowing several feet below the surface. LA Stick and the tiny calf she bore during tropical storm Debby stayed clear of the other four dolphins. As a local dolphin, LA Stick is familiar with the undersea architecture of Johns Pass. Moving back and forth across its deep bowl, she hunted along a broad oblong path that stretched east west. This is a common pattern among local dolphins, but today it also helped her skirt the problems of the other dolphin mother. The other mother, Keyhole Notch, is a seasonal visitor to our local waters. This year she came to Johns Pass to have her baby, as in other years (Dolphin Watchs Time for the girls of the Gulf). Forming a complementary cross to LA Sticks course of travel, she searched a narrow north-south path. At least she tried to. Two things distracted her from her hunt. Primary were the clumsy strokes of her tiny shiny newborn, to which she conceded her normally smooth stride by orchestrating her momentum in concert with the babys faltering efforts. But to keep the helpless newborn tucked safely at her side, she had to keep moving, particularly because of the other distraction: the need to dodge continually the two remaining dolphins roving literally and figuratively among the patches of dark and light. Strangers to these parts, Hoffman and its shadowy companion seemed more interested in the dark pursuit of Keyhole Notch and her newborn than hunting. Shed vanish beneath the brine in the business of breakfast. Yards from her vanishing point, some unseen force would shove an eruption of water to the surface. Keyhole Notch would scurry out of the froth with the spectral silhouette of Hoffman on her heels, who alternated hunting with threatening her with subsurface sideswipes or explosive blasts of bubbles. Capt. John Heidemann and I dont yet know if Hoffman is a bull. But it acted like a bull peevishly trying to vent unspent rites of spring on an unlikely but easy target: a mom dolphin with a tiny shiny new baby. Such rogue behavior may seem understandable considering that few, if any, of the females in our local waters have been available for dating this season. Regardless of the ratio of bulls to available babes, however, rogue behavior is rare among our local dolphins. Capt. Heidemann and I have spent thousands of hours observing the 47 bottlenose dolphin bulls identified to date and 75 calves born to date. Weve seen only five testy episodes, which includes Hoffmans rather villainous morning. Bull belligerence toward moms or their calves tends to be short-lived and, brightly, of no apparent harm to the newborn that weve seen. Local bulls are more likely to react to newborns in other ways. They can be tender, as when big gorgeous Schnoz swam with Split and her clumsy newborn Seville without a whiff of aggression. They can be companionable, like the times this spring when Bowery Boys BB and DD2 swam sleepily with Face Photo by ANN WEAVERLocal dolphin mother J surfs the wake of a speeding motorboat with her 2-month-old calf, which illustrates the bottlenose dolphins marvelous adaptations to the aquatic environment.and her baby, or a little mischievous, as when N poked Valiants newborn Vice lightly in embryonic play some years ago. Our survey started on the dark side but ended on the bright side with a splashy rendition of an infamous dolphin bait-and switch. The switch illustrated yet another way bulls can act toward babes with babies. We were heading across a wide bay. Perchance, I glanced behind me in time to see local bull DD2 springing off the transom, asking to surf. Being a boring research boat, we slowed instead of accelerated. DD2 returned to his buddy BB and slid into the hypnotic cadence of snooze swimming. By and by, a boat passed going at speed. The boys sprinted over and vanished into its wake. Capt. Heidemann paced the boat so that I could snap pictures to identify the surfing dolphins when they leapt to breathe. My obsessive collection of dolphin photo-identification pictures was cheerfully vindicated because it revealed a bait-and-switch! Though big bulls BB and DD2 had vanished into the wake of the speeding boat, it was petite mom J with her 2-month-old baby who leapt out of the wake to breathe! Do you think bulls BB and DD2 were being polite?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

However, by the weekend we were able to enjoy some of the most beautiful weather weve had all summer. Light winds and little to no rain made for perfect conditions in the Gulf. Theres no question that often the best late summer fishing occurs in the cooler deeper waters of the near-shore Gulf, especially on the quarter moon phases when there isnt much tidal movement, making for slow fishing conditions for snook, trout and reds. Mangrove snapper bunch up in massive schools on the late summer full moons for a spawn. Schools of mangrove snapper ranging in size from one to four pounds can be found on artificial structures from inside Tampa Bay, the Skyway Bridge and surrounding structure found along the shipping channel as well as many areas in the near-shore Gulf waters, including much of the pipeline and deeper artificial reefs in the 30to 50-foot range. Perhaps the mangrove snappers biggest asset to anglers is their ability to be chummed up. Frozen chum blocks make up the first step while fresh-scaled sardines and threadfins can be cut up and used for both added chum and bait. The key to fooling the larger mangos is to down size your tackle including hook, weights and leader. Once the snapper are chummed up, make your offering appear to be one of the cut pieces of chum in every aspect, including size and rate of fall, and youre sure to get bit. Gag grouper fishing remains good in the 40to 50-foot depths. Targeting ledges and rock piles with live pinfish and frozen sardines will put you in the game. The bite last weekend wasnt quite as strong as its been so we opted to start with frozen sardines in order to get the fish more active and to draw them in with the scent. Once the gags started biting the sardines we switched to big pinfish and quickly secured a nice limit of fish. Until next week get bent! Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver

MonastPodiatric Physician & Surgeon Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons Skin cancer treatments without surgerySkin cancer is the No. 1 type of cancer in the United States. There are many types of skin cancer, the most common being basal cell carcinoma (80 percent), squamous cell carcinoma (16 percent) and malignant melanoma (4 percent). This is not a complete least as there are a number of other unusual types we see. There are many treatments available ranging from Mohs micrographic surgery and frozen section margin control surgery to Curettage and Electrodessication (ED+C) to radiation therapy to a myriad of prescription topical creams (5-fluorouracil, Imiquimod). Below is a brief overview of the skin cancer types and an update on a new nonsurgical treatment, radiation therapy with the Sensus SRT100, which is used exclusively to treat nonmelanoma skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma is similar in most instances to having a cavity of the skin in that it destroys the local tissue it sits in, but the vast majority of the time does not spread. Squamous cell carcinoma behaves differently than BCC in that it usually presents a more rapidly growing tumor, can be sore/painful and depending on the location, patient and type of SCC, may spread (metastasize). BCC and SCC are most often located in areas of sun exposure and often have some presenting symptoms such as a non-healing, bleeding sore, a tender volcano-like bump that is rapid growing, etc. Malignant melanoma is a deadly skin cancer that is usually a painless dark spot, often in a nonsun exposed area such as the back or back of the legs. Early detection and surgical treatment are essential to having the highest survival rates with melanoma.Treatments for skin cancerAll skin cancer treatments should be individualized for the patient with regards to cure rate, location, cosmesis, expectations, etc. Surgical treatments are the most commonly employed and have very high cure rates. Many patients want other options and now we have the latest in nonsurgical treatment for nonmelanoma skin cancers (BCC and SCC) the Sensus SRT-100. This is radiation therapy made exclusively to treat skin cancers. The beam is low dose and goes only into the superficial layers of the skin. Patients usually come in twice weekly for six weeks for treatments that last about one minute. There are no needles, no scalpels/cutting, no bleeding, no stitches and minimal scarring. Patients most often encounter redness and a raw area at the treatment site during the treatment. At one month after completion of therapy with the Sensus SRT-100, most patients have a small pink area that remains where the cancer was which usually continues to fade over time. Cosmetically, the result is fantastic and success rates are on par with the various surgical techniques. The Sensus SRT-100 is not appropriate for all nonmelanoma skin cancers as we still refer certain skin cancers to either the plastic surgeon, the Mohs surgeon or the radiation oncologist. Again, every patient is unique and there is no substitute for a discussion about the options for their specific skin cancer, its location, the scar potential and the success rate of the treatment. Benefits of Sensus SRT-100 treatment include: No cutting No need to stop blood thinners No bleeding No stitches Minimal scarring Little to no pain As few as 12 treatments (usually twice weekly) Covered by insurance and Medicare We encourage everyone to get a skin exam at least annually. Early detection is key to the highest success rate.

PETE BEACH The St. Pete Beach Community Center will host the St. Pete Beach Tennis Festival on Saturday, Aug. 11, 10 a.m. to noon, for children of all ages and family members. Admission is free. The event will feature clinics, demonstrations, refreshments and music. We are excited to host a 10and-under tennis festival. Tennis is a life-long sport that families can experience together, said Jennifer McMahon, recreation director for the City of St. Pete Beach. With the new format for 10-and-under tennis, it allows for a positive and successful experience for the youth. For small children, the festival will feature the 10-and-under format of play, which features the right-sized equipment for kids, smaller, lighter racquets and softer, lower-bouncing balls, and kid-sized nets and court sizes. The format is creating a whole new generation of players in the U.S., introducing kids to tennis in a fun format rather than with the frustration of regular tennis balls that bounce over their heads, heavy adult-sized racquets and too much court for little legs to cover. The St. Pete Beach Community Center is located at 7701 Boca Ciega Drive.

Now 30, Celeste is the driven owner of her own media consulting firm, Jesse is once again unemployed and in no particular rush to do anything with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do she is on her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can remain supportive friends. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he is still in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. But her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous. While navigating the turbulent changes in their lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go.Soldiers of FortuneGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Christian Slater, Ving Rhames, Dominic Monaghan, Sean Bean and James Cromwell Director: Maxim Korostyshevsky Rated: R Captain Craig McCenzie (Christian Slater) has an unblemished record in Afghanistan until he chooses to save the life of his best friend in defiance of a direct order and is dishonorably discharged from the Army. Reduced to running a struggling security firm, he agrees to train and guide some of the worlds wealthiest men on a top-secret mission to deliver state-of-the-art weapons to an isolated rebel force. Charles Herbert Vanderbeer (Charlie Bewley), a hedge fund founder and American aristocrat; Roman St. John (Sean Bean), a ruthless British mining magnate; Sam Haussmann (James Cromwell), a cell phone pioneer and Texas outdoorsman; Grimaud Torneur (Ving Rhames), an African arms dealer also known as the Grim Reaper; and Tommy Sin (Dominic Monahan), the designer of ultraviolent video games, all have their own very personal reasons for paying stratospheric fees to participate in a real-life revolution. Their goal is to free Snake Island, a mineral-rich atoll in the Black Sea, from its brutal dictator, Colonel Lupo (Gennadi Vengerov) and his ex-CIA chief of security (Colm Meaney). McCenzie must transform a handful of arrogant, hypercompetitive egotists into a crew of professional soldiers who can survive in a hot zone, and guarantee their safety once in combat. But their foolproof mission is betrayed from the start, and when the teams bodyguards and supply boat are destroyed before reaching shore, the wealthy warriors are trapped in enemy territory. As each struggles for dominance, Lupos forces close in, taking them hostage and demanding half of their considerable fortunes in exchange for their release. While McCenzie tries to infiltrate the tyrants mountain fortress and rescue his hapless charges, their lives depend on their ability to finally figure out what it means to be a team.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Through graphic scenes of torment, misery and futility, Miike skillfully illustrates the common thread of human suffering. Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai tells the tale of Hanshiro, a mysterious samurai who arrives at the doorstep of a feudal lord with a single request. The samurai seeks an honorable death by ritual suicide. In an attempt to dissuade Hanshiro, Lord Kageyu recounts the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request. Motome, it is revealed, had ulterior motives: His request was only a ruse to shame the lord into giving him alms and sending him on his way. Recognizing the bluff, the house of the feudal lord decides to make an example of Motome. Dishonored, Motome meets a ghastly end. Lord Kageyus tale does not have the intended effect upon Hanshiro, who proceeds to tell his own tale. The viewer then learns of his connection to Motome and what drove the young ronin to commit such a desperate and disgraceful act. Set during the Edo period and the reign of the Tokugawa shogunate, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is a remake of Masaki Kobayashis 1962 film Harakiri. The incidents depicted take place between 1619 and 1630 but the underlying themes are relevant today. External events shaped the lives of Hanshiro and his daughter Miho as well as the life of Motome. Formerly prosperous, the house of Hanshiros lord had been toppled by the shogunate because it was considered a threat. Faced with an era of peace, Hanshiro could not profit from his skills as a samurai and was forced to rely on other means to eke out a living. Living in poverty, Hanshiro abided modestly even happily until calamity befell his family. Ebizo Ichikawa plays Hanshiro. Ichikawas brooding resentment is brilliantly offset by interspersed scenes of bliss and contentment as flashbacks show glimpses of what might have been. As Hanshiro seeks to settle the score, Ichikawa simmers subtly, his seething anger gradually coming to the surface. As Motome, Eita delivers one of the most visually unsettling sequences in recent memory. Motomes demise is brutal and Eita effectively brings the characters physical and emotional agony to the viewer. Kikari Mitsushima stars as Miho. Mitsushima becomes the embodiment of anguish. As Lord Kageyu, Koji Yakusho is similarly efficient. Kageyu represents the hypocrisy of the feudal system preferring the pretext of honor to genuine honor. Interestingly, Yakusho introduces a deeper layer into the character by hinting at suppressed sympathies. Ultimately, though, Lord Kageyu is guided by his own uncompromising retinue. Composer Ryuichi Sakamoto provides a gorgeous original score that accentuates the intricacies of Miikes storytelling. Those expecting frequent fights, blood-drenched swords and epic carnage may be disappointed: Brimming with stunning cinematography and conveyed with patient plotting, Miikes evocative new film is more cerebral than bloody. Miike lays bare the vanity of a pitiless ruling class, incapable of compassion and devoid of ethical individuals willing to take a stand for evenhandedness. As such, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is a condemnation of authoritarianism as well as a call to question traditional definitions of honor. Such motifs are clearly applicable in the Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Kikari Mitsushima stars as Miho in "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai," distributed by Tribeca Film. Photo courtesy of TRIBECA FILMmodern world. Viewers are left to draw parallels to the deteriorating middle class, to autocratic corporations and to the erosion of integrity. For Miike, Hanshiro personifies authentic honor. While watching the films climactic fight sequence, the viewer is compelled to ask whether or not the director believes challenging dictatorial regimes is practical. Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai was released theatrically July 27, premiering in New York City, Los Angeles and Boston. Following this limited release, the film will appear in theaters across the United States over the coming months. It also is currently screening on Video On Demand, available on Bright House, Verizon and other cable providers.Looking ahead Clearwater Some Like It Hot, Thursday, Aug. 2, 7 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets are $5.

The exhibit explores how photography was used in the development and propagation of communism. It also raises larger questions surrounding the perception and interpretation of photographs, which are often viewed as strictly representing reality. Artists in the early days of Soviet rule redefined their role in society. No longer creators of paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the elite, many artists embraced photography as an art for the masses. They advanced the cause of the October Revolution of 1917 by experimenting with avant-garde processes and points of view. Photographers represented include Alexander Ustinov, Max Alpert, Emanuel Evzerikhin, and Georgi Zelma, among others. The photographs in this exhibition are selections from recent donations by Howard Schickler and Janice Tuckwood of more than 200 Soviet photographs. These images, the first of their kind to enter the collection, illuminate history and explore the manifold uses of photography. Museum hours are Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $17 for adults, $15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students 7 and older, including college students with current identification.
