Exp. 4-1-2010 By TOM GERMONDLARGO Potential cuts in public safety services were a hot topic for some city commissioners at their work session March 23 as they discussed recommendations for reducing the citys budget by $3.6 million for the next fiscal year. Freezing salaries, raising fees and cutting the equivalent of more than 24 full-time positions are among options considered as city officials try to deal with bleak revenue projections. Among the proposals on the table were cutting the staff at Fire Station 41 on Fourth Street from two to one person per shift and eliminating the positions of three sworn police officers. Mayor Pat Gerard was adamently opposed to cutting police staffing, noting that three sworn officers were unfunded for the current fiscal year. I have a problem with that, she said. We managed to do without the three from last year, but I dont see cutting another three. Police Chief Lester Aradi expressed concern about not having adequate supervision if a vacant sergeant position is unfunded and two police officers positions are filled. ... If we only eliminate a sergeant and keep the officers, what I end up with is seven officers with no supervision. So whatever your decision is to cut, if it is only two squad positions, make those officers instead of a supervisor, Aradi said. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he wanted to know the logic behind reducing staffing at Station 41. Thats three firefighters, Holmes said. Were supposed to be in charge of public safety ... That doesnt make much sense to me. He said that cutting firefighters and police staffing to maintain ancillary services is not going to go over real good with citizens. Thats not what city officials heard from citizens during a budget discussion last year and every hand in the room came up that, yes, it was OK to cut fire and police, City Manager Mac Craig said. Fire Chief Mike Wallace said that city officials have received preliminary approval about a grant that the city hopes to receive for breathing apparatus that will save the city $300,000. That for one year will offset the cuts that are proposed for the three Photo by TOM GERMONDFelipe Flamingo is part of a handmade collection called Beasties of the Kingdom.

During a routine visit to a doctor, the 25-year-old Indy car driver learned he had Type 1 diabetes and immediately thought his longtime dream of winning the Indianapolis 500 would never be possible. Much to his surprise, Kimball was told by doctors that with proper monitoring and control of blood sugar levels he could continue racing. This season he will compete for the third consecutive year with special monitors and injection equipment as a member of AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport in the No. 26 Levemir FlexPen car. He will race Sunday, March 28, at 12:45 p.m. in the By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Tropicana Field has come to the end of its useful life. For Major League Baseball to remain successful in Tampa Bay, a new first class, new generation stadium is needed Craig Sher, a member of the ABC Coalition, told Pinellas County Commissioners that news as part of a report presented to the board on March 16. The 60-member ABC Coalition, aka A Baseball Community, was initiated in 2008 by former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker. Its purpose is to serve as a community-wide effort to ensure that major league baseball is vital, viable and successful longterm in the Tampa Bay Region. The coalitions final report recommends three locations for a new stadium. Only one of the three is in Pinellas County. The other two are on the other side of the bridge in Tampa. Sher said the coalition evaluated Tropicana Field and found it lacking. He said that although Tropicana Field opened in the 1990s, it was constructed in 1986 with an end of the era design, not new. It was dated the day it opened, he said. He listed a litany of faults. Its difficult to move around in, he said. Its a maze. You cant see the field as you move around. The view is compromised in the premium seats. The seats arent angled well, and the number is not proportionate between the upper and lower decks. The catwalks are an issue. There is no natural grass or natural light. Playing on artificial grass Coalition thumbs nose at Tropicana Field See FIELD, page 4 See BUDGET, page 2Opening this week Hot Tub Machine. See page 16.

You may be at risk for PVD (Peripheral Vein Disease).We Changed Her Life An actual testimonial from one of our patients...Dr. Mountcastle, Thank you for the wonderful job you did for me! As you know, I had been suffering with severe throbbing, aches, and pains in my right leg for over two years. Sleeping at night was nearly impossible, due to the involuntary leg movements that occurred most nights. This caused me to have problems at work and in everyday life. All of this continued despite all my efforts to get relief (legs up on pillows, massages, Potassium pills, drinking lots of water, support hose, many different types of shoes, and leg exercises at least twice a day). Long stretches of sitting, especially in a car or on a plane, caused excruciating pain. I had seen several doctors with no relief. I prayed every night that I would get some relief and be able to sleep. Rarely did I have such luck. Diagnosed with "restless leg syndrome" and given medication for it, I got little to no relief. Convinced this was how I would have to spend the rest of my life, I saw an ad for Dr. Mountcastle. I had no idea this would be the best phone call I ever made. I made an appointment. At that meeting an ultrasound was performed which revealed an "insufcient saphenous vein." The vein was repaired in one session. After taking a "relaxation pill, the procedure was performed in his center. The recovery was very rapid, with little to no pain. I was back to full duty at my Physical Therapy job the next day with no restrictions. Thanks again Dr. Mountcastle, you have changed my life!Vicky Daniel J.

A further reduction being discussed by other governments of 2 percent would result in an additional $300,000 reduction in revenue. Increased recreation fees also are proposed, such as raising recreation membership fees by $5. Currently, the fees are $5 for city residents. Commissioner Mary Black said she would like to see various program fees cut and allow the membership fees to stay the same. Residents are already paying property taxes for recreation and in addition they must pay for a recreation card. However, she said, they may not be participating in all the programs offered. The programs should be paying for themselves, she said. Reducing library hours, eliminating public swimming at the Southwest Pool during the winter, and closing the nature center at McGough Park also are being considered. But closing any park, which spurred public backlash during last years budget discussions, didnt appear on any commissioners radar screen. Whoever votes to close the park gets to keep the owl, Craig said, jokingly, referring to an owl at McGough Parks nature center. Several budget discussions with the public and commissioners are expected before the commission approves the budget and tax rate in September. The next fiscal year begins Oct. 1. BUDGET, from page 1

Officer Jorge Alameda received the officer of the year award; Debbie Andersen, civilian employee of the year award; and Ron Wallace, VIP of the year award. Alameda has been employed by the police department for 5 1/2 years and has served as a DUI traffic enforcement officer since November 2007. He is able to handle all tasks assigned to him and has been the most productive DUI Officer in the DUI units history, a city memo said. Since he has served in the traffic unit, Alameda has removed more than 350 impaired drivers from the citys streets. In 2008 Alameda arrested 146 DUI drivers and was awarded the remove intoxicated drivers top arresting officer of the year award for Pinellas County. Alameda has been certified in court as a drug recognition expert. He is also certified as a DUI instructor, intoxilizer operator, and traffic homicide investigator. Andersen, an operational secretary, has worked for the city for more than 16 years and provides support for two captains as well as administrative assistance to patrol lieutenants and sergeants. She organizes police staffing requirements, making sure positions are filled at special events and off-duty details. On many occasions these requests come with only a few hours of notice, the city memo said. Due to Debbies perseverance and hard work with the difficult job of being able to staff and support events and other off duty requests, the operation of the Police Department runs smoothly. Wallace has been a volunteer in policing since 2002. In the past year, he has been willing to provide his skills and services to afternoon, evening and weekend patrol shifts. He is willing to train new volunteers on each aspect of being a VIP, with patience and understanding, the memo said. Wallace has worked special events through the years and his more than 4,000 service hours qualified him for the Presidents Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented to him in August 2009.Photo by TOM GERMONDLargo Police Chief Lester Aradi explains why Ron Wallace, standing beside him, received the Volunteer in Policing Award for 2009.

4 Leader, March 25, 2010City sign ordinance may be discussedLARGO City commissioners will discuss the possibility of allowing more flexibility in their sign ordinance because of economic hardships businesses are facing. The issue is expected to be discussed at a work session. Commissioner Gigi Arntzen asked March 16 what the city can do to help businesses. City Commissioner Harriet Crozier also said she had planned to bring the issue up. Commissioner Curtis Holmes made similar comments at a recent meeting. At least one business owner has asked city officials for relief in the past few weeks. Mike Novak, general manager of Goodyear tire dealership at 1706 Clearwater/Largo Road, has asked commissioners in an e-mail to think about the big picture and keep these businesses and jobs within the city of Largo. He said he was in receipt of a sign violation for his business. Within the past year, six businesses have either closed or gone out of business due to no business traffic in the Clearwater/Largo redevelopment area, he wrote. Novak said he has lost several thousand dollars at his business in the past year.Land-use amendment approved; office complex proposed LARGO City commissioners voted 6-1 March 16 to approve a land-use amendment for properties off Highland Avenue that an applicant plans to use for a medical office building. The properties are at 1170 Seventh Ave. NE and 1169 Eighth Ave. NE. The applicant, Allen Finkelstein, plans to combine the property with parcels on Highland Avenue to build the office complex. A couple of residents of the area spoke against the change, saying that it will cause traffic problems and affect property values in the neighborhood. The land-use amendment received support from several business owners and residents at the Feb. 16 meeting. They said that the office project will create jobs and improve the tax base. City officials said that the plan proposed at the commissions Feb. 16 meeting would require further approval through a development agreement between the city and the applicant. The agreement would require two public hearings, one with the Planning Board and one with the City Commission. So there is a pretty significant component yet to come before something can actually be built that will include public involvement, said Assistant Community Development Director Robert Klute. Commissioner Mary Black voted against the amendment. The city Planning Board had recommended denial Feb. 4 by a 4-2 vote. Staff also recommended denial.City schedules public meeting on budgetLARGO City officials will host a community budget meeting Monday, March 29, 6 to 9 p.m., at the Largo Public Library, 120 Central Park Drive. This will be an open forum for the public to provide input, voice concerns and offer suggestions for city services and budget priorities. City staff will present potential budget scenarios and service reductions for the fiscal year 2011 budget. All members of the community are invited to participate. City conducts survey on trails planLARGO The city is conducting a survey for the proposed urban trails master plan. When complete, the urban trails master plan will include a citywide urban trail network that will provide bicycle and pedestrian access from neighborhoods to local parks, the Pinellas Trail, shopping centers, schools, and transit stops. As the city begins to prepare this plan, community feedback is needed to help determine which destinations to connect to the urban trails, what amenities should be provided along the urban trails, and how to prioritize construction of the urban trail network. Community members are encouraged to complete the urban trails survey online at www.largo.com/movinglargo. For more information on the urban trails master plan, contact Darci Dore, program planner, at 587-6749, ext. 7350 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Park opening set for March 30LARGO The grand opening of Eagle Lake Park is set for Tuesday, March 30, 10 a.m., between Shelters 4 and 5 in the northwest corner of the park. The main entrance is at 1800 Keene Road. County Commissioner Karen Seel will speak to commemorate the parks public opening. Cub Scout Pack 484 will present the colors. Eagle Lake Park is bordered by Belleair Road on the north, Keene Road on the east, McMullen Road to the south and Lake Avenue to the west. The park was purchased in two separate transactions from the Taylor family, early pioneers in Pinellas County who used the property for cattle grazing and as a citrus grove. Amenities include a playground, six picnic shelters, fishing piers, three restrooms, a dog park, paved recreation trails and 2,000 feet of boardwalk. The habitat of the park includes native vegetation, restored wetlands and diverse local wildlife.City gives $1,534 check to Childrens Burn FoundationLARGO An open house and the Chili Cook-Off at Fire Station 41 raised $1,534 in donations to help children with burn injuries. Over the years, Largo residents have enjoyed the Chili CookOff and have been very generous in their support of the Fire Rescue Department and this effort to help children with burn injuries, said a city memo. The funds raised from the event are donated to the Childrens Burn Foundation of Florida, which sponsors the Florida Burn Camp for children. Tom GermondBriefs Firestone Indy Lights race at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.I went in with a skin rash and came out with diabetes, said Kimball as he recalled his diagnosis three years ago. During a casual post-exam conversation with his doctor, Kimball mentioned he had been a little thirsty lately, which immediately got his doctors attention. When his physician found out Kimball had dropped 25 pounds and 4 percent body fat in a week, he ordered tests for diabetes. He said even before the tests come back, I can tell you youve got diabetes, said Kimball. I said OK. Give me a prescription and well take care of this. Then he explained how it would affect my life and Id have to take insulin. Kimball was forced to abandon the remainder of the 2007 race season but after consulting with endocrinologist Dr. Ann Peters of Los Angeles, he returned to racing in 2008. Racing at speeds in excess of 150 mph, Kimball is able to monitor his blood-sugar levels by wearing a continuous glucose monitor that attaches to his steering wheel and charts his blood sugar every five minutes while driving. A special helmet allows him to take a sip of orange juice if his blood sugar levels get too low. The devices serve as insurance for Kimball, who hasnt had to use the orange juice injections yet.

Im thinking about getting my body ready. I check my blood sugar level before I get in the car and if I did my job, I dont have to do anything before the end of the race. Because driving is generally under very hot, strenuous conditions, the physical exertion normally burns off sugar. I like to see a higher blood sugar level before the race, said Kimball. I like to get in the car at about 200 (mg.) and get out at about 120. I try not to see levels below 120 or 100 because it can affect reactions and mental clarity. Kimball is the first driver with diabetes licensed by the Indy Racing League and hopes to become the first to win the Indy 500 some day. In the meantime, he is committed to encouraging people with diabetes to continue going after their life goals. Kimball has partnered with Novo Nordisk, a global healthcare company dedicated to diabetes care, to raise awareness about the importance of managing blood sugar levels and to demonstrate that diabetes can be successfully integrated into a persons life. He also tells his story at American Diabetes Association conventions and seminars during the offseason. Levemir, a company that manufacturers the Levemir FlexPen insulin injection pen, is the sponsor of his car. Kimball said joining AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport is definitely a step up. Im racing with a team thats a dream come true, he said. They won the championship the last two years and the level of professionalism they bring is unlike any Ive seen in nine years. Kimballs love for racing started at age 10 in Camarillo, Calif., when he spotted his first go-cart. The urge to race took over and he later won a national go-cart championship. He got his first ride in a formula car at 16 when his parents purchased a two-day practice session for his birthday. During his early years, Kimball competed in the Formula Ford U.S. series before moving up to the British Formula 3 series where he became the first American driver to win a race in 11 years. He has also raced in the Formula 3 Euro series and the World Series by Renault. Last year, Kimball drove in the Indy Lights series for Team PBIR. He finished 10th in points, which included ashortens a players career, he said. There are lots of issues with Tropicana Field, he said. The price tag to renovate it and install a retractable roof is between $200 million and $475 million, Sher said. The estimated cost of a new stadium is $600 million. Sher said the coalition envisions a new completely air-conditioned stadium with a retractable roof big enough to seat 37,000 to 40,000 with 45 to 60 luxury boxes. He said all seats would have unobstructed views. It would provide a positive fan experience, exciting and dynamic, making people want to come early and stay late, he said. Sher said it should be an iconic facility that puts us on the map as having the best stadium on the planet. Sher reviewed possible stadium financing plans and said no one was asking to build a new stadium with the economy the way it is now. Were planning for the future, he said. He also talked about the value of the Rays to the areas economy and explained the coalitions reasons for its site recommendations for a new stadium. The sites are mid-Pinellas in north St. Petersburg, the Westshore area of Tampa and downtown Tampa. Sher said the location needed to be where it could garner the best fan draw. He said to do that statistics showed it should be within a 30-minute drive of the largest population group to draw in the most weeknight fans. Total attendance to home games in 2009 was 1.87 million, well below the MLB average of almost 2.5 million. Research shows that Pinellas County accounted for more than 47 percent of 2008 season ticket sales, according to the ABC report. Nearly 43 percent of new season ticket holders in 2009 were from Pinellas. However, the ABC said the absolute number of people currently attending Rays games from the mid-Pinellas, Westshore and downtown Tampa trade areas is greater than from the downtown St. Petersburg trade area. Sher said the Rays were lacking in corporate support. He said in most markets corporate ticket sales accounted for twothirds of season ticket sales. He said the reverse is true for the Rays. He said part of the problem was most corporate offices were outside St. Petersburg and Pinellas County. One silver lining: Significant corporate revenue growth opportunities exist within the entire Tampa Bay region, particularly in Hillsborough County, the ABC report said. Sher said the Rays would continue to receive substandard attendance due to the location of Tropicana Field. Its not a cool place to go, especially if youre not interested in baseball, he said. Sher made it clear that the Rays had not threatened to leave Tampa Bay. But its only so long when they cant make money and the community is not wholeheartedly supporting them, he said. If I owned the team and youre tired of losing money, youve got to do something. If things stay as they are, the ABC Coalition believes it will be the death of the team, he said, and the area risks losing the team at some point in the future. He said the coalition did not rank the three locations. Weve done our job, he said. He said all the information in the final report and recommendations were unanimous. At the end of the meeting, Commissioner Ken Welch told Sher the lack of discussion should not be interpreted as a lack of interest. But our attorney advised us not to participate due to the St. Petersburg agreement. FIELD, from page 1

According to a Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office spokesman, Luann Fernandez of Tampa was arrested March 17 at her residence by deputies. She is an art teacher at Southern Oak Elementary School. According to the spokesman, the Sheriffs Office got a tip that a woman who might be impaired was leaving a restaurant. Deputies, using their lights and siren, tried to pull her over but the woman accelerated and wouldnt stop. After deputies caught up with her at her residence, Fernandez performed a field sobriety test and soon after was arrested. The marijuana was found during the investigation, the spokesman said. She was released on $3,000 bond from the Orient Road County Jail March 18.Deputies arrest Largo man for DUILARGO A Largo man was arrested for DUI on March 18 in connection with a Feb. 2 crash that injured a Seminole bicyclist. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Michael Galloway, 41, was arrested after recently returned test results showed he was impaired by controlled substances when he allegedly struck and injured Barry Cercone, 53, of Seminole, who was riding his bicycle near Fifth Avenue and Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach. Cercone, who was reportedly struck from the rear, was ejected from his bike at the time of the crash, the report said. Cercone was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, the report said. He was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries. Galloway was charged with DUI with serious bodily injury, DUI with property damage and felony DUI. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 9:45 p.m. on March 18 where he remains. A check of the jail records shows Galloway also was booked into jail just after midnight on March 18 and charged with burglary of an unoccupied structure and possession of burglary tools. He was released on bond at 1:12 p.m.Three dead after Clearwater shootingsCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is investigating two March 20 shooting incidents that resulted in the deaths of three men. According to the sheriffs report, at about 2:20 a.m. on Saturday, March 20, detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit began investigating a shooting at a private residence in unincorporated Clearwater that left two men dead and a third one critically injured. Patrol deputies initially responded to shots fired at the private residence located at 2201 Curtis Drive in Clearwater, the report said. According to detectives, two males had shown up at that private residence in Clearwater where a party was taking place. Detectives said the two men were looking for someone who was not at the residence. An altercation began between one of the men, who was later identified as 19-year-old Alexander Blaine Epstein of Clearwater, and another individual who was at the party. A shooting ensued and, as a result, three people were shot, the report said. Benjamin Andrew Kubes, 20, of Clearwater was pronounced dead at the scene. Ibrahim Sorie Kamara, 22, also of Clearwater was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The third victim, Dennis Alphonse Miyawa, 20, of Largo was transported to a local hospital for treatment of lifethreatening injuries. Detectives said after the shooting, Epstein and a second male who came with him to the residence fled the scene. Detectives began their investigation to locate the suspect in the shooting, who at that point had been identified as possibly being Epstein. Detectives received information that led them to the area of the residence on Poinsettia Avenue in Clearwater. Undercover detectives set up a perimeter around the area of the home. At about 4:20 p.m., the suspect exited the residence and began walking toward one of the undercover vehicles. An undercover detective challenged the suspect to stop. However, the suspect continued to walk toward the detective and began reaching for his gun. The undercover detective fired at Epstein, the report said. Detectives said Epstein then stumbled back toward the residence still with the gun in hand. A second undercover detective then challenged Epstein to drop the gun. Epstein did not comply. The second detective also fired at Epstein. Epstein was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives said the altercation at the Clearwater home where the shooting occurred might have been over a woman. The second male, who went to the home with Epstein, is not considered a suspect in the shooting and is cooperating with law enforcement, the report said. As per policy, the two undercover detectives will be placed on paid administrative leave and the incident will be reviewed. P P olice beat olice beatCLASSIFIEDSwww.TBNweekly.com
6Viewpoints Leader, March 25, 2010Ive always thought that the term March Madness was a bit overdone. The annual playoffs of college basketball teams are exciting but I have yet to meet anyone who has gone certifiably bonkers because of the competition. Then again, my circle of contacts is not as wide as it could be. For all I know mental health clinics throughout the land are swamped each spring with basketball fanatics who slipped over the edge. This year Im trying to learn more about March Madness. Why, Im not sure. The playoffs began March 16 and will conclude April 5. Sixty-five college teams are in the mix. Thirty of them qualified by winning their conference championship. The remaining 35 were chosen by the Selection Committee of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, headquartered in Indianapolis. The NCAA is one of the most powerful bodies in the nation. Thats because it sets the rules for college sports, which 83 percent of Americans consider more important than politics, the economy or sex. (I just made up that statistic, but I doubt if Im far off.) CBS is televising the playoffs this year. The reporters and anchor persons are skillful and qualified, and are adept at fulfilling the one inviolable rule of TV sports: never stop talking. Do not assume that viewers can understand or enjoy the play action without someone continuously yammering into the CBS microphone. To help my understanding of basketball, I looked up some of the terminology. Here are a few examples: ALLEY OOP. This occurs when a player lofts the ball in the general direction of the hoop and a teammate completes the play by stuffing the ball through the hoop. I dont understand why an offensive player is allowed to make this sort of assist. After all, a defensive player is penalized if he deflects or intercepts the ball on its downward flight. Its called goal-tending, and is forbidden. DINGLE. This is when a player steals the ball and makes a quick score. BRICK. This is a bad shot, one that has no chance of scoring. BRICKLAYER. A player who regularly shoots bricks. HACK-A-SHAQ. This is a tactic in which a player notoriously poor at foul shooting is deliberately fouled by his opponents. Named after Shaquille ONeal. *** I dont follow basketball closely, but I enjoy tapping into the March playoffs and watching the players exhibit their skills, which are admirable. It would be nice if we could accurately refer to all the NCAA players as student-athletes. But thats not the case. Many of the players were watching in the playoffs will not graduate. For example, one of this years top basketball powerhouses, Kentucky, has a Graduation Success Rate of only 18 percent for its black athletes and 31 percent overall. The University of Maryland has a zero black graduation rate. Perhaps the worst example of a college that allows athletic dum-dums to play is the University of California at Berkeley. It has a campus graduation rate of 85 percent, and this includes 62 percent of black students. But the graduation success rate for its basketball players is zero, for both black and white students. On the other, brighter side of the ledger are the NCAA schools who have excellent graduation rates for their athletes, both black and white. Villanova, Kansas, Pittsburgh, Georgetown and Duke have black player graduation rates between 67 and 100 percent. Those colleges with a 100 percent graduation rate across the board include Notre Dame, Wake Forest, Marquette, Brigham Young and Utah State. (The above figures are from a March 16 article by Derrick Z. Jackson, a veteran columnist for the Boston Globe.) Vanderbilts graduation rate for athletes also is approaching the 100 percent mark. Why the wide disparity in graduation rates among the colleges? I must assume the answer lies with the NCAA, the individual schools, their alumni and that ever-present money machine that drives so many sports programs in our country. Colleges with a winning tradition sometimes dont care how its maintained, or how much it costs. A prime example is the University of Kentucky, whose basketball coach, John Calipari, will be paid almost $32 million over the next eight years, even if not one of his players graduates. But none of this should keep us from enjoying March Madness. After all, its the game that counts, the winning, the do-or-die for Old Siwash. The fact that many of the players are dumb as a stump is of minor importance. Right? Send Bob Driver an e-mail at email@example.com. Drivers SeatBob DriverA proposed state constitutional amendmentwill cost taxpayers an unprecedented amount of money in election costs, usurp governments legislative powers and have a chilling effect on proposed developments across the state. Amendment 4, basically, requires referendums on any changes to local governments growth plans. The measure is expected to be on the Nov. 2 ballot. It is sponsored by Hometown Democracy, a group that contends that development is running rampant in Florida because politicians are rubber stamping changes to government growth plans. Indeed, too much development in Florida has caused serious problems, such as loss of wildlife, wetlands and traffic problems. Sometimes local governments, touting the economic benefits of new developments, are too eager to approve projects. Years of urban sprawl has taken its toll on governments ability in Florida to provide services in an orderly manner, such as schools, law enforcement and environmental protection. Nevertheless, any proposed amendment that gives voters carte blanche authority to reject changes in growth plans goes to the extreme, with consequences such as possibly bringing development to a standstill. Local governments spend hours studying requests for land-use changes because thats their job. Planning boards and elected officials act on their staffs advice after reviewing detailed information on such issues. Does the average voter have the technical knowledge to determine whether a proposed growth plan change is in the best interest of the community and meets sound planning criteria? Will he or she take the time to analyze every growth issue slated for referendums? Also at issue is what effect the amendment would have on the number of requests developers seek for changes in the growth plans. If the amendment is approved, some developers may be less likely to make a considerable investment in designing plans for their projects and going through the governmental review process because of fears that such efforts will be all for naught. Hard to say how many more elections will be held if the amendment is passed, but costs will be astronomical. The last mid-term election in Largo cost $70,000. Thousands of changes to growth plans were approved across Florida last year. Business interests, of course, are against Amendment 4. The Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Association of Realtors see the proposal devastating to governments efforts to improve their tax bases. Agreed. The appropriate way to control the negative effects of growth in Florida is through the legislative process, either at the state and local level. For instance Pinellas County commissioners recently adopted an ordinance that includes a ban on the sale and application of nitrogen and phosphorous fertilizers from June 1 to Sept. 30. It also regulates landscape and maintenance practices. Some local governments have spoken out against Amendment 4, such as adopting resolutions against the measure. Others should do likewise. Amendments to the state constitution should be based on sound principles that are designed to improve the structure of government, not turn it upside down.EditorialAmendment goes too farReaders forum Hoop notesLetters do not necessarily reflect the views of Tampa Bay Newspapers. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900www.TBNweekly.com Publisher/Pr esident : Dan Autrey . . . . . . .firstname.lastname@example.org Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli . . . . .email@example.com Retail Adv er tising Manager: Jay Rey . . . . . . . . . .firstname.lastname@example.org Classif ied Adv er tising Manager: Shelly Fournier . . . . .email@example.com Ex ecutiv e Editor: Tom Germond . . . . . . firstname.lastname@example.orgPr oduction Manager: David Brown . . . . .email@example.com Inter net Ser vices Manager: Suzette Porter . . . . firstname.lastname@example.org Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure . . . . . email@example.com Lar go Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond . . . . firstname.lastname@example.org Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd . . email@example.com Clearw a ter Beacon: Alexandra Caldwell . . firstname.lastname@example.org Pinellas P ar k Beacon: Thomas A.

Shiflett . . . . .Phone: 530-5521Dont shoot the messengerEditor: Regarding a recent article, Councilor questions city manager, lets not shoot the messenger. As Patricia Plantamura is presently the only gentlelady on the City Council, some decorum gentlemen. It is appropriate to question adding any additional payr oll at this time, we as well as every other level of government face very challenging times ahead, and we will for some time. The current contract for the city manager is up in a few very short years, we need to look ahead and project what our financial situation will be and begin planning for the future now. As a member recently of our Charter Revision Committee, the question came up from time to time and was best addressed by our former mayor, a member of the committee when Patricia left us to join the City Council. The question then, as now, was would we even need a manager after 2013, if, for example, the fire department is consolidated into county services, leaving only a handful of employees on the city payroll. The short answer is probably not. As a candidate for the City Council recently, the question on how to manage our future fiscal situation came up in several forums and more then one candidate envisioned eliminating the manager position. When this resident served on a previous City Council, some 15 years ago, we revised the city charter to move to a full-time mayor, with a manager/administrative assistant position. An elected city treasurer, an elected city attorney, and a smaller, five-member city council. This format produces a more accountable, and is a much more efficient format, with almost all positions ultimately decided by the electorate. Thomas J. Christy SeminoleGive President Obama a chanceEditor: I heard something today on the news that rang true about the passing of President Obamas Health Care Reform Bill. First, he did not just come up with this bill since he came into the White House. It is a promise carried over from his campaigning days. As it stands now, the passing of the Bill could go either way. If the Republicans have their way, it wont pass and that also means that the millions of people that elected President Obama did not work hard enough in holding pass the bill parties and conducting service projects around the theme. Barack needs our help. We put him in the Oval Office, our job is not yet fulfilled. It was sneaky squeaky now defunct Georgie Boy Bush that slid several bills through Congress during the 11th hour. One such bill was to freeze increases in Social Security, Veterans Administration and railroad retirement checks for three years. There is nothing President Obama can do about it to reverse it unless he wins a second term. This is the same Bush that got us in debt to other countries including communist countries China, Korea and other such dictator countries in the form of loans, business enterprises taking business overseas and leaving the U.S. President Obama has already made history by being elected the first black American to be elected in United States history. But well never know if he can be the best first black President if we do not give him a chance. John McCain, a Republican, is the one that made an ass of himself on live television coverage during three debates. Essentially, he alone elected Obama. Now the Republicans and Democrats are oneupping each other. President Obama put a freeze on all government salaries, including The Senate and Congress. Come on people. Use the brains you were born with. Dont remain ignorant by choice. Listen to the news, vote in the polls on news shows. This is your country. Democratic, free, self-determination is our right. Ignorance is self-insulting. Racism is downright passe. We are fighting bigger wars and if we keep fighting one another, we are ripe for the United States of America to become victims of another terrorist attack. Give President Obama a chance. Give peace a chance. If he fails, it is his own doing, not us giving him the cold shoulder and racist remarks and acts of terrorism from within. United we stand. Divided we fall. I do have one question of President Obama, the IRS, The Treasury anyone in the know: When are we going to get our stimulus checks? Susan M.

Viewpoints 7 Leader, March 25, 2010 Ask Dr. Panzarella:The Most Important Doctor You See This Year Could Be Your Dentist!When you have an oral infection, it doesnt just stay in your mouth. Oral bacteria enter the bloodstream while you eat, oss, brush your teeth and even while you sleep. Thats bad. Studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of Periodontology report that the in ammatory effects from periodontal disease can cause bacterial byproducts to enter the bloodstream and trigger the liver to make proteins such as C-reactive protein, one of the primary markers in all kinds of in ammation. What does that mean to you? C-reactive protein can not only increase your risk of the blood clots that lead to strokes and heart attacks, it is, according to a new study from Harvard, a factor in pancreatic cancer. The Harvard study shows that men with gum disease were 63 percent more likely to develop pancreatic cancer when compared to those with no periodontal problems. This is a significant finding because, according to the American Cancer Society, pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers that are actually on the rise. Oral bacterial infections can also be a problem for pregnant women, increasing their risk for complications and low birth-weight babies; for people with diabetes who may nd blood sugar control more dif cult; and for anyone who needs joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement patients must be especially careful about these oral bacteria because they can travel through the bloodstream and settle in an arti cial joint. Periodontal disease is also the leading cause of tooth and bone loss and that can really affect whole body health as well. If you have a history of Osteoporosis, this is especially important to take into consideration because of the strong relationship between periodontal disease that causes bone loss and osteoporosis. The effects of tooth loss are serious enough. Studies show that those who lose their teeth have higher medical expenses and fewer years of life. The good news is that you can add up to six years to your life expectancy just by ossing regularly, so imagine what regular cleanings and gum care from your dentist can do for you! At About Smiles Dental, we care about your whole health. We think in terms of prevention and use advanced training and technology to diagnose and treat periodontal disease before it becomes a major threat to your health.

Proposed legislation would require restaurants to post nutritional information on menus as part of efforts to promote healthier eating and fight obesity. Its about time. In this day and age, the more we can tell people how many calories and how much sugar, fat and sodium is contained in a certain piece of food, the more likely they will be to make an intelligent decision about what to eat. If I read that something on the menu has few calories, little fat or sodium, keep it away from me. I cant imagine anything without those key ingredients tasting good. Such information is important, especially if youve taken a personal oath to follow a strict hedonistic diet. But while theyre at it, why dont our legislators require that other information be disseminated to keep the public informed and improve our quality of life in Florida? For instance, why not adopt a law requiring all Florida legislators to post on their Web sites important facts about themselves? Under a section called the nutritional value of Florida legislators, each legislator would be required to provide: Biographical information: Age, education and marital status how many times they have been married, divorced or imprisoned.Health information:Whether legislators smoke, drink or have ever inhaled. Employment information: What each legislator does for a living current jobs, former jobs and how many times they have been fired. Financial status: All sources of income and expenditures would be listed. All legislators would have to report any gift they receive or any meal, drinks or services bought for them. What theyre up to: Legislators would have to reveal what meetings they attend in Tallahassee and how they vote on every issue and whether they have been caught lying in the St. Petersburg Times Politfact. Social life: Who legislators hang out with any conversations they have with lobbyists, fellow legislators, local officials and other politicos and the deals they have struck. Party affiliation: Whether they belong to the Democratic party, the Republican party or the Tupperware party. Whether they are tea partiers or party poopers. Religion: What churches do legislators attend? Do they believe in an after life? Do they pray theyll go to heaven? Sports: What teams do the legislators follow? Who are their favorite athletes? Do they think Tiger Woods would make a good legislator? Ethics: Google Ray Samson. Diet: Are they on a South Beach diet or a hedonistic diet? Have they eaten crow? Do they like pork on their plates or just in the budget? Just some food for thought. OK, maybe this is not such a good idea. Revealing such information about themselves might make some legislators queasy. In fact, revealing the nutritional value of the lawmakers might have an negative effect upon their constituents, too. It might cause them to throw up.

Call NOW to register! INDIAN ROCKS BEACH 32510 This is the first of a series on the publics participation in Pinellas Countys budget process. The series continues next week. By SUZETTE PORTERHundreds of Pinellas County residents are shelling out advice on the best way to cut $60 million from the fiscal year 2011 budget. County commissioners hosted a series of public meetings in three locations plus one additional eTownHall meeting in March to gather opinions on what citizens believe are high priority areas and low priority areas. People also were asked for ideas on cost savings and generating revenue and more. Tim Closterman, director of Pinellas County Communications, said turnout and participation had been good for all the events. Meetings took place in Palm Harbor, Seminole and St. Petersburg. He said preliminary analysis of public comments revealed some common themes Heritage Village, preserves, parks, code enforcement, consolidation and reduction in management. Closterman also said the themes varied a bit depending on location. For example, a large group showed up at Osceola High School in support of Heritage Village, he said. Staff is now compiling the data that should be ready to present to the commissioners in the coming weeks. Residents at each public meeting were asked to fill out questionnaires. A check of answers from the Palm Harbor and Seminole meetings revealed several areas in conflict. In other words, they were listed by some as a priority area and as low priority by others. Among the items on both lists were law enforcement and emergency services; parks, preserves, educational facilities and environmental lands; animal services; social services, Extension services; veterans services; and healthPublic offers opinions on countys priority areasand human services (social welfare). Some items on both lists (priority and low priority) contained common themes but were not an exact match. For example, some citizens said transportation was a priority while others said road construction and improvements, and mass transit were low priority. Some people even suggested that the county save money by closing the St. PetersburgClearwater Airport. Economic development was listed as a priority while community development and development was listed as low priority. County employees were on the minds of those surveyed. Some said saving jobs should be a priority and others said employee benefits and perks were low priority. The Utilities Department also made both lists. Utilities in general was a priority, but solid waste franchising received a thumbs down as did free garbage collection and anything to do with solid waste except recycling. Areas remaining on the priority list include code enforcement and consumer and justice services; although some believe they should be handled by the sheriffs office. Drainage, education and libraries also made the priority list. Other low priority areas, which outnumbered priority by almost two-to-one on the survey, included anything that requires hiring of more personnel; fluff such as the citizens university; juvenile detention programs; environmental services; information services; the new hurricane hardened public works campus currently under construction; business support; communications, customer service, emergency preparation and administration. Art projects and beautification projects also made the low priority list with at least one person saying Gulf Boulevard beautification should be paid for by the beach communities and not the county as a whole. Some said funding for tourism was not a priority and suggested that the convention and visitors bureau be eliminated. Citizens can continue to send in their thoughts on budget cuts via the countys Web site, www.pinellascoun ty.org. Look for the Citizens Guide to the Budget icon on the left-hand side of the page. People who prefer to mail comments, questions or ideas can send them to Pinellas County Communications, ATTN: Budget, 333 Chestnut St., Clearwater, FL 33756.County to get $5.6 million in grant fundsPinellas County expects to receive approximately $5.6 million in federal grant funds and program income for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2010.

The story centers around a Viking teenager named Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) who lives on the Island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life.

When Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens Astrid (America Ferrera), Snotlout (Jonah Hill), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and twins Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) and Tuffnut (T.J.

There she meets an alluring young woman who, in those brief moments, connects with Catherine it is Chloe (Amanda Seyfried). Returning to the table where theyre now playing spot the hooker, Catherine watches with interest as Chloe approaches an older businessman. On the drive home Catherine finally asks David if he intentionally missed his flight from New York to stay for drinks. When he claims he did not, she knows she has caught him in a lie. Now more suspicious than ever that David is having an affair, Catherine seeks out Chloe, an escort, hiring her to test Davids fidelity. Meeting regularly, Catherine absorbs the explicit details Chloe shares of her encounters with David, igniting Catherines jealousy and awakening long-dormant sensations. Soon caught in a web of sexual desire, Catherine finds herself on a journey that places her family in great danger.

Each year, the seaside town where Michael lives hosts an international literary festival, attracting writers from all over the world. Michael works as a volunteer for the festival and is assigned the attractive Lena Morelle (Iben Hjejle), an author of books about ghosts and the supernatural, to look after. They become friendly and he eagerly tells her of his experiences. For the first time he has met someone who can accept the reality of what has been happening to him. However, Lenas attention is pulled elsewhere. She has come to the festival at the bidding of world-renowned novelist Nicholas Holden (Aidan Quinn), with whom she had a brief affair the previous year. He has fallen in love with Lena and is going through a turbulent time, eager to leave his wife to be with her. But all Lena is trying to do is extricate herself from this mess and just get through the next few days. As the festival progresses, the trajectories of these three people draw them into a lifealtering collision. Embellished by the supernatural, The Eclipse is a film about the challenges of love, fear of the unknown and release from the burden of grief. OPENING, from page 16

By law you need to have the following safety items on board your vessel in order to be in accordance: life preservers for passengers and captain, a whistle, a charged fire extinguisher, a throwable (the square floatation device often used as a seat cushion) and if you plan on exiting the pass for the gulf youll need up-to-date flares. Perhaps the single most important thing you can do is to have full weather awareness. Monitoring Web sites like NOAA will give updates every four hours on predicted weather and wind patterns. If you go further into this site you can access marine weather wind speed forecasts. Hour by hour wind prediction is key for knowing whens a good time to pack it up and head in. On larger vessels a VHF radio is a standard feature, not the case on smaller boats. However, the reality is that the smaller vessels are the ones most likely to get into trouble offshore, so for less than the price of most fishing rods this should be a no-brainer. Class 2 life preservers are inexpensive and are often the choice of many boaters, but Class 1 life preservers (the type required for charter boats) would definitely be better suited for keeping a 250 pound person afloat for an extended period of time. Going even one step further, outfitting each vest with its own glow stick makes a lot of sense. A first-aid kit and extra water will help keep the body and mind in tact in the event of being stranded. A back up battery costs about $50 bucks, but you would gladly pay quadruple that if youre alive, well and your stereo happened to drain your only battery. Let someone know approximately where youll be, otherwise known as a float plan. And lastly, EPIRBS are the ultimate safety net. Although they cost around $700, this seems to be the one thing that you can really count on in the event of an emergency. Until next week get bent!

By THOMAS MICHALSKICatholic Charities of St. Petersburg, which three years ago opened the controversial but now successful Pinellas Hope tent city for Pinellas Countys homeless, has now opened its doors to a flow of Haitian immigrants who lost their homes and property to the devastating 7.0 earthquake that rocked the island on Jan. 12. Sheila Lopez, executive director of Pinellas Hope, said more than 100 immigrants already have been accepted into the Catholic Charities fold, with more expected in the future. None of the new immigrants are being housed at Pinellas Hope. Besides money and donations of such things as clothing and household goods, Catholic Charities has a critical need for interpreters who speak French and Haitian Creole, the countrys two official languages. Helping people is what we do best, Lopez said. The people who suffered so much in that terrible earthquake deserve all the help we can provide in these trying times. Some of the immigrants are housed at a secret location in Pinellas County where they receive medical and other assistance before being moved to shelters, private homes and other facilities that are run by social organizations. Virtually all of the immigrants arrived at Tampa International Airport over the past few weeks. Lopez did not know how many more would be coming into Florida. Catholic Charities is an arm of the Diocese of St. Petersburg that serves Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. It has launched a drive to obtain money, food, clothing, personal items and other needs for the new immigrants, most of whom arrived in Pinellas County with little more than the clothes on their backs. The earthquake which devastated the Port-au-Prince area along with 52 aftershocks of 4.5 or greater, killed approximately 230,000 people and left more than a million homeless. An estimated 250,000 homes and 30,000 commercial buildings were severely damaged or destroyed. Lopez said most people are unaware of how the victims are suffering from their injuries. I have seen adults and little children without arms and legs, Lopez. One woman and child who are now housed in Pinellas County was cooking a meal in her home when the initial quake struck. A pot of cooking oil was shaken off the stove. It fell on the woman and her child who was severely burned, Lopez said. The baby is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Lopez said many of the immigrants want to remain in Florida, or in other states, to rebuild their lives. Most have lost their homes, their property and their loved ones in the earthquake. It all brings tears to my eyes when I see and talk to them, Lopez said. It is so sad to see these poor people sick, with lost limbs, burns and other injuries ... Although other organizations in Pinellas County and beyond have lent a hand to the Haitian immigration effort, Lopez said Catholic Charities is fast in becoming the leader in the assistance drive to help them. With vast resources and a track record of taking the helm when it comes to disaster relief, Catholic Charities has sprung into action to fight homelessness, assist hurricane victims and create volunteer forces to help survivors of all other disasters. Persons interested in volunteering should contact Lopez at 564-2727. Donations of clothing, personal and other items can be dropped off at Pinellas Hope which is located at 5726 126th Ave.Catholic Charities opens doors to HaitiansLove offering. Popcorn free.
