Back-to-school shopping might be a bit less ex-
pensive this year, thanks to the return of one of
Florida's most popular tax holidays.
The Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is Aug.
13-15. During the three-day period, shoppers
won't be charged sales tax on school supplies,
books, clothing and footwear priced under a cer-
tain dollar amount.
The first back-to-school sales tax holiday was in
1998, and it continued until the years 2008 and
2009 when the state Legislature said no to all
sales tax holidays due to budget constraints.
In 2010, opinions changed and state lawmakers
voted to reinstate the holiday for school supplies.
Gov. Charlie Crist signed House Bill 483 into law

IARGO Six candidates have qualified
to run for seats on the Largo City Commis-
sion in the Nov. 3 election.
Qualifying ended July 26. Brief bio-
graphical information on the candidates
follow. The Leader will provide more details
on the candidates' position on the issues
and background as the election approach-
Robert Avery has lived most of his life
in Largo and is a Largo High School
graduate. He currently works for Mease
Manor in Dunedin as an activities driver.
He teaches first aid, CPR and other skills
for Tampa Bay Safety and does other vol-
unteer work, such as for breast cancer
He said he will graduate this month with
an associate of arts degree at St. Petersburg
College. He will start his bachelor of
on May 26.
"Our children deserve to have the resources
and materials they need to be successful and
competitive in the classroom," Crist said in a
press release sent out the day he signed the 2010
holiday into law. "I am confident this tax break
will help students, families and businesses as
they prepare for a new school year. It is important
that we continue to alleviate the tax burden on
Floridians, as well as seek ways to improve the
economic future of our state."
The tax holiday could save Florida families an
estimated $26 million.
The state has a list of eligible items and pub-
lished guidelines that retailers and shoppers must
In general, books, clothing, footwear and certain
accessories selling for $50 or less are eligible, as
are certain school supplies selling for $10 or less.
The state defines books as "a set of printed
sheets bound together and published in a vol-
ume." Newspapers, magazines, other periodicals
and audio books are not books and will be taxable
during the holiday.
Clothing is defined as any article of wearing ap-
parel, including all footwear (except skis, swim
fins, roller blades and skates) intended to be worn
on or about the body. Clothing does not include
watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas, hand-
kerchiefs or sporting equipment.

LARGO If everything goes
according to plan, a Tampa
Bay business will be relocat-
ing to Largo, bringing with it
55 new positions.
City commissioners ap-
proved on July 20 project
#0607-10 for participation in
the Qualified Target Industry
Tax Refund Program.
According to staff notes,
the company, currently locat-
ed in Hillsborough County, is
classified as being in the busi-
ness sector, life sciences. It is
recognized as a target indus-
try in the city's economic de-
velopment plan adopted by
the commission in July 2009.
The business, which has
requested confidentiality, filed
a QTI Program application
with the state, Pinellas Coun-
ty and Largo. The company is
expected to invest $7.3 mil-
lion over the first three years
Course. The cost is $11.50 for
18 holes. The average annual
revenue from golf cart rentals
Joan Byrne, recreation,
parks and arts director, said
three bids were received and
the lease-purchase option of-
fered by Agrieredit Acceptance
was most cost effective.
At the end of the lease
term, the carts will be sold to
Jeffrey Allen, the company
that provides maintenance for
the Club Car carts, for
Commissioner Mary Black
asked why the city didn't buy
the carts and keep them for a
longer time to recoup costs.
Byrne said it was better to
sell the carts at the end of
three years due to the expect-
ed increases in repair and
maintenance for older carts.
Also, the life expectancy of the
batteries is usually about
31/2 years. Replacement cost
of the batteries is $500 a cart.
In addition, she said golf pa-
trons like to play courses with
The city can lease new golf
carts for about $37,500 a
year. Sufficient funds are in
the golf course budget for the
remainder of 2010. Funding
will be requested for future
The only catch involves in-
surance, Byrne said. Agri-
credit doesn't understand
government liability rules.
County Attorney Alan Zim-
met said the insurance prob-
lem could be resolved.
"Wer just need to get to the
right person and get them to
understand," he said.
The commissioners also
approved on first reading a
request from Les Rubin, pres-
ident of the ICOT Master As-
sociation, to rescind the
Development of Regional Im-
pact on the ICOT Center. The
DRI development order for
243.71 acres of mixed-use de-
velopment initially was ap-
proved by Pinellas County in
1989. The agreement was
amended in 1994 and 2000.
A master map, Map H, was
adopted as part of the devel-
opment order amendments.
The city of Largo annexed
the ICOT Center property in
2000 and adopted the DRI
order shortly thereafter. The
property was zoned Industrial
Limited. However, Map H was
not consistent with the Indus-
trial Limited zoning, and city
amended its future land use
map to include educational
uses for St. Pete College's EPI
Center and residential uses
for Aluna Largo Apartments.
According to staff notes, al-
though the DRI expired on
Dec. 31, 2004, "in order to
proceed with further develop-
ment, the DRI status of the
property must be addressed."
A recently passed amendment
allows developer or landown-
ers to opt-out or rescind the
DRI if all required mitigation
related to the development
has been met.
If commissioners vote to re-
scind the DRI, the vested
rights of the Master Plan (Map
H) will govern future develop-
ment of the property. Staff
has recommended approval.
The tax refund requested
by the company is based on a
program award of $4,000 per
job for the 55 new jobs,
$3,000 as the QTI base allo-
cation and a bonus of $1,000
because the average wage,
$57,897, is 150 percent over
Pinellas County's average
wage of $38,598.
The total QTI amount for
the project is $220,000.
Largo is responsible for
providing 10 percent of the
amount approved by the
state, or a maximum of
$22,000. Pinellas County is
responsible for the other
$22,000 of the required local

It was mostly good news from the Gulf of Mexico this week-
end as Tropical Storm Bonnie fizzled and NOAA opened one-
third of the closed fishing area.
In addition, BP's well has remained shut down since July 15.
Thad Allen, national incident commander, made the decision to
leave the well capped as vessels and equipment were moved
away from the well site in advance of the weather.
Monitoring vessels did remain onsite and no problems were
reported, Allen said July 25 in a press briefing.
Officials estimated that the weak tropical storm could delay
work on BPs leaking well by seven to 10 days. Crews were at
work late July 25 reassembling the drilling rigs.
Allen said the vessels involved in monitoring the well and
those working on the relief wells were the first vessels back. The
containment vessel Q4000 also was onsite and preparing to get
back to work.
Current estimates say it will take about a week before crews
can place the liner in the final piece of casing on the relief well.
When the casing is finished, BP plans to do a static kill, shoot-
ing mud down through the top of the containment cap into the
leaking well to try to kill it from the top.

The state also has a rule about where purchases can be

For example, eligible items are not exempt from sales tax if
purchased at a theme park or entertainment complex. So, a T-

World would be taxable, although a similar T-shirt purchased
at a department store would be exempt.
Eligible items also lose their tax-exempt status if purchased
at a public lodging establishment, aka a hotel, motel, resort,

The Florida Department of Revenue is on to tricks people try
to make an item meet the rules.
For example, officials say you can't split up a pair of shoes
priced at $80 to make each shoe sell for $40, and you can't
split up a $100 suit into two pieces, jacket and pants for $50
each. You can't split up a set of books into separate volumes to
lower the price of each book.
People also can't take apart sets to lower the price or remove
an ineligible item.
The Department of Revenue uses the example of a set con-
taining a wallet and key chain for $35. The rules say the set is
not tax-exempt, even though the wallet would be if sold sepa-
rately, because the key chain is taxable; therefore, the entire set
is taxable. The same goes for a desk set that includes a stapler
because the stapler is not on the list of tax-exempt items.
Buy one, get one coupons, manufacturer's coupons and re-
bates cannot be used to bring an item's price down to qualify
for the exemption. However, store coupons or discounts that re-
duce the sales price of an item can be used.
A complete list of taxable and tax-exempt items and addition-
al information is available at www.TBNweekly.com.
Second busiest shopping season
of the year
The Florida Retail Federation played a big part in the sales
tax holiday's return. Sally West, director of government affairs
for FRF, attended the bill's signing ceremony and spoke on its
benefits for Florida families and businesses.
'This tax break will enable Flonida families to buy school
supplies and clothing for the school year without the additional
burden of state and local taxes," West said."T~he tax holiday
also will provide a much needed boost to Florida's economy."
According to the National Retail Federation, combined K-12
and college spending will reach $55.12 billion in 2010, "serving
as the second biggest consumer-spending event for retailers be-
hind the winter holidays.
The NRF's 2010 Consumer Intentions and Actions Back to
School survey, conducted by BIGresearch, showed that the av-
erage American family plans to spend $605 on clothes, shoes,
supplies and electronics, compared to $548 in 2009. Total
spending on children in grades K-12 is expected to reach
$21.35 million. ...
Spending for college-age students is expected to remain simn-
lar to last year, the NRF said, with the average family spending
$616 on new apparel, furniture for dorms or apartments'
school supplies and electronics. .
Florida's sales tax holiday does not meclude electronics or fur-
According to the survey, people intend to buy more store
brands and generic products this year, and more plan to do
comparative shopping online. They also plan to shop in dis-
count stores and department stores. Two other targeted desti-
nations were clothing and office supply stores.
Online shopping also is expected to get an almost 8 percent
boost from shoppers this year.
"Whhether to save a few bucks and compare prices or simply
because of the convenience, more people will shop online this
year," the NRF said.
Almost half those surveyed by NRF said they planned to start
shopping three weeks before the first day of school.

Local Gulf of Mexico waters open to fishing
The final step will be the bottom kill through the relief well,
which could begin as early as mid-August.
Gulf waters reopen
While weather delayed work on the well, local fishermen
got the go-ahead to return to waters offshore Pinellas that
have been closed for several weeks.
NOAA re-opened 26,388 square miles of Gulf water to com-
mercial and recreational fishing July 22. Much of the water is
off the west coast of Florida.
Jane Lubehenco, undersecretary of commerce for oceans
and atmosphere and NOAA administrator, said in a press
conference Thursday afternoon that much of the area had
been closed originally due to concern about sheen near the
"But the oil never materialized," she said.
Since mid-June, NOAA data have shown no oil in the area,
and U.S. Coast Guard observers flying over the area in the
last 30 days have not observed any oil. Trajectory models of
the oil's movement show that the area is at low-risk.
In addition, fish caught in the area and tested by NOAA ex-
perts have shown no signs of contamination.
"I'd feel very confident eating any seafood from the area
being opened today," Lubehenco said.
She said sampling would continue in the marketplace and
dockside to ensure the public's safety.
Lubehenco said sensory testing allows experts to detect
very minute parts per million. She said the tests were done
looking for oil and dispersants. She said no fish tested had
shown signs of contamination.
Lubehenco said NOAA and its university partners also were
continuing to look for subsurface oil. Thus far, she said the
only place where subsurface oil has been found in concentra-
tions has been near the wellhead.
'T~he farther away you get, it becomes very dispersed," she
said. "It's virtually undetectable."
Lubehenco said she felt re-opening Gulf waters was the
right thing to do for American consumers and local fisher-
"W've,~ taken extraordinary measures to ensure the safety
of seafood to the American consumer," she said. "Whe have a
keen desire to only have safe seafood in the marketplace."

Hearing scheduled on labor impasse
LARGO City officials will hold an impasse hearing re-
garding the collective bargaining agreement between the
firefighters' bargaining unit and the city Tuesday, Aug. 31.
The labor agreement between the city and International
Association of Firefighters Local 2427 expired on Sept. 30,
2009. The parties were unable to successfully bargain a
successor agreement. Thne city declared an impasse in the
negotiations, a Special Magistrate hearing was conducted
and the recommendation of the special magistrate was re-
jected by the city.
Under Florida law, the final step in the process is for the
City Commission to conduct an impasse hearing to make a
final decision regarding contract terms.
If the firefighters' bargaining unit, does not ratify the deci-
sion of the City Commission, then the imposed contract
terms will be effective until Sept. 30.
Bargaining would then commence between the parties for
a new agreement for the period beginning Oct. 1.
Decision for fire police officer upheld
LARGO An arbitrator has upheld the city's decision to
fire a police officer for misconduct.
City officials said that on Nov. 2, Police Chief Aradi termi-
nated Police Officer Darren Cockeram for pleading guilty to
one count of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident while
operating his privately owned vehicle off duty.
His blood alcohol level was tested at .23 or almost three
times the legal limit, and he was involved in two hit and run
accidents, reports said.
Cockeram sought arbitration, arguing that discharge was
too severe a penalty for his misconduct. He was represented
by the Police Benevolent Association.
The city was represented in the arbitration by attorney
The arbitration hearing was conducted May 19. The arbi-
trator's order upholding the City's decision to terminate was
issued on July 17.

LARGO City officials said the temporary economic stim-
ulus sign permit proposal that was approved by the City

signs that were approved.
The one-year relief from the city's sign ordinance stems
from complaints that more options for temporary signage is

A tribute to a true Treasure Island patriot
Charles Weisgerber was honored at the TI Vision steering
Committee July 8 with a proclamation in his honor issued by
Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning. Receiving the proclama-
tion was Charlie's wife Jan, and three of his five sons. Charles
was able to watch from his home.
To say that Charlie knew everyone is an understatement. He
was close friends with all who knew him, and as a friend, Char-
lie would do anything for you. His contacts in the political
arena were wide, and he was especially proud of his friendship
with Congressman Bill Young. Charlie worked on many a politi-
cal campaign from local elections all the way to Washington.
Charles H. Weisgerber, his grandfather, was an artist who
painted the famous picture of Betsy Ross presenting the first
U.S. flag to President Washington (this picture was recently

Leader, July 29, 2010
By SUZETTE PORTER
CLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners began the
task of putting their stamp on the fiscal year 2011 countywide
budget during a July 20 work session.
The discussion began with a follow-up on the capital im-
provement program originally presented on June 10. As in
prior years, the proposed CIP eliminates, defers and down-
sizes many planned projects.
One idea to help "provide necessary liquidity" in the capital
projects fund is an inter-fund loan from the solid waste fund
in fiscal years 2010 and 2011. Staff estimated that the capital
projects fund needs an additional $15 million for fiscal year
2010 and $5 million in fiscal year 2011.
Benefits of an inter-fund loan versus conventional bonding
include lower borrowing costs; interest accrues to a county
entity; terms that are more flexible; and no reserve require-
"T~he solid waste fund will be made whole as the loan would
be at prevailing market interest rates," the staff report said.
Road project deferred
Staff was asked to summarize the rationale for rescoping
the Park Street/Starkey Road, Tyirone to Bryan Dairy project
to include only the key intersection at Starkey and Bryan
Pete Yauch, director of Public Works and Transportation,
said because the project was estimated to cost in excess of
$34 million, staff recommended deferring the project until
funding becomes available.
The project encompasses the County Road One corridor
from Tyirone Boulevard to East Bay Drive. Plans had called for
widening the road from four lanes to six lanes, based on traf-
fic growth estimates made in the 1990s. The project also in-
cluded bicycle lanes and intersection improvements.
Yauch said due to the budget shortfall, and new informa-
tion showing that traffic volumes had not increased as much
as anticipated, staff recommends deferring the project. Staff
also recommends that the road be resurfaced in scheduled
segments during the years 2011 and 2012 to protect its struc-
Commission Chair Karen Seel expressed concern about the
"'There are several schools in that area," she said.
She also asked how staff planned to "notify the folks who
live on the corridor that the project is off."
Yauch said notices would be sent to the cities, Seminole
and Largo, among others.
Potholes and resurfacing
One of the biggest complaints from the public in recent
years has been about the increase in potholes. Staff proposes
solving the problem by increasing the budget for resurfacing
from $3.5 million to $8.5 million in fiscal year 2011 and from
$3.5 million to $5.255 million in fiscal year 2012.
A staff report said at the current spending levels, the coun-
ty's pavement condition index was projected to average 78.5.
An index of at least 82 is desirable. Staff said to maintain an
82 "an investment of approximately $8 million is required."
Roadways with the poorest pavement conditions are those
planned for reconstruction, including current and upcoming
projects on Keystone Road, Bryan Dairy Road, Forest Lakes
Boulevard and McMullen-Booth Road.
The deferment of the Starkey Road projects will require
resurfacing within the next two years.
'The increase in spending will allow the improvements of
these most critical roadways," staff wrote.
Gulf Boulevard funding
Commissioners also discussed the plan to restore the allo-
cation for Gulf Boulevard from the proposed $26 million to the
original amount of $35 million. Staff notes show that the pro-
posed capital improvement program budgets $3.5 million for
the project for fiscal years 2013-2016 with an increase to $7
million for fiscal years 2017-2019.
The county attorney's office is currently working on a draft
Seel said beach communities were meeting to discuss their
priorities for the project. She asked how they could begin
when the funding did not start until 2013.
County Administrator Bob LaSala said scheduling the fund-
ing to begin in 2013 should not impede the cities' ability to
start projects. He said the interlocal agreement would give
them the start-date they need to get bonding.
CLEARWATER A Clearwater woman was
arrested July 19 for allegedly stealing nearly
$176,000 from her employer, according to a
Pinellas County Sheriffs report.
Detectives from the economic crimes unit
began investigating after William Golson, the
owner of Golson Law Firm, discovered checks
for $34,000 that the suspect had allegedly
written to herself, the report said. During the
investigation, detectives found that while the
suspect was gainfully employed by the law
firm as an office manager and bookkeeper
with signing privileges on the corporate check-
ing account, she used her position to write
dozens of unauthorized checks to herself and
to third party companies to whom she owed
money, the report said.
The third parties were mostly for credit card
companies. The criminal activity occurred
over at least six years, the report said. The
suspect, Kerry Sue McCallister-Higgins, 34,
was paid for her employment by a separate
payroll company, indicating there would be no
reason for any checks from the firm to be
written out to her name, the report said. Of
the nearly $176,000 stolen from her employer,
about $46,000 were in checks written to her-
self, and about $130,000 were in checks writ-
ten to the third party companies.
McCallister-Higgins was arrested around 8:45
p.m. on July 19 at her home. She was
charged with grand theft.

Most people consider them

However, health officials
know mosquitoes are much
more than a nuisance. Their
bite has the potential to
spread deadly diseases, such
as West Nile virus, st. Louis
encephalitis, canine heart-
worm and others.
That fact struck close to
home July 1, when a woman
from Hillsborough County
died from Eastern equine en-
cephalitis. It was the first
death from EEE in Florida
sal 11 rough County and
11 other counties in the state
are currently under a mosqui-

Monroe County in south
Florida is under a mosquito-
borne illness alert.
Thus far, no cases of ar-
boviral illnesses have been re-
ported in Pinellas County,
according to Maggie Hall,
Public Information director
Pinellas County Health De-
Arbovirus refers to viruses
that develop in arthropods,
mainly mosquitoes and ticks
that transmit the disease
through their bite. The name

The mosquito problem isn't
as bad in Pinellas as other
areas because the county is a
very urbanized location.
Other areas around the state
are more rural, such as where
the woman who died in Hills-
borough came from, and
some places have swampland

Pinellas County uses traps
to monitor mosquito popula-
tions. Sentinel chickens caged
in eight target locations serve
as virus monitors. The chick-
ens are tested regularly to
look for virus antibodies,
which is an early alert of pos-
sible trouble in the local area.
Hall said two sentinel birds
tested positive in May. One
had the antibodies of an ar-
bovirus. Officials are current-

two additional birds that have

horses were reported from 21
counties. seventy-one sen-

sentinel birds are impor-
tant to mosquito control due
to the connection between the
birds, mosquitos and disease.

Hall said mosquito control
in Pinellas was "very good."
However, public participation
is important to the county's
overall mosquito control pro-

should remember the five Ds.
*Avoid mosquito prone
areas from dusk to dawn.
*Dress in light-colored
clothing that covers most of
your skin if you have to be
outside when mosquitoes are
*Use repellents. The ones
that contain Deet are most ef-
fective. Others recommended
include Picaridin and oil of
lemon-eucalyptus. Hall said
people should read labels and
not use Deet products on
children age 2 and younger.
*Drain standing water.
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in
standing water and can devel-
op in any water that stands
for more than four days.
Two types of mosquitos are
a problem in Pinellas County:
the yellow fever mosquito,
Aedes aegypti, and the Asian

Tampa International Airport by bus is possi-
ble, he said, but it requires several changes of
buses and takes about three hours, so most
people prefer to take the privately owned air-
"You get bus ridership up to where it's
breaking even and maybe we'll come back and
talk about it," Moakley told Seel.
"Maybe it now takes three hours to get to
the airport but it won't when you get the sys-
tem in place," said Linda McKenna of Largo.
She added that in suburban Virginia, people
find it more relaxing to take public transporta-
tion into Washington than to drive.
"Whhat I'm hoping to see out of the task force
is real data that supports these ideas, rather
than a lot of pie in the sky," said County Com-
mission candidate Norm Roche, who lives in an
unincorporated area near Clearwater. He said
that the county must know that a new trans-
portation system will work before officials
spend millions of dollars of the taxpayers'
money to buy right-of-way, build the system
and subsidize its operation for years.
The task force plans to meet again over the
next six months, and citizens are invited to add
their input. For more information, call 464-
CLEARWATER Pinellas is the most dense-
ly populated of Florida's 67 counties, but its
transportation system is said to be stuck in
the 1950s, when Pinellas had a fraction of its
current population and the automobile was
king. Last year, in an effort to bring the coun-
ty's transportation into the 21st century, the
county formed the Pinellas County Trans-
portation Task Force, made up of 25 elected
officials and ordinary citizens.
"Cities around the globe have proven that in-
vesting in transit-friendly corridors strengthens
local economies, creates jobs and improves mo-
bility, all of which would make Pinellas County
a better community to live, work and play," the
county's Web site says. "Task force members
are working with representatives from area
planning and transportation agencies to for-
mulate practical and fiscally sound transporta-
On July 19, the task force held a workshop
at Bayside High School to seek citizens' input
on what they would like to see in an updated
transportation system for the county. County
Commissioner Karen Seel, who hosted the
event, said that when the county was planning
upgrades to U.S. 19, some of the best ideas
came from citizens at such workshops. And the
attendees at the July 19 workshop weren't shy
about sharing their thoughts.
"T~he one thing that worries me is that I don't
see how you can compete with the automobile
if you don't offer the same speed as the auto-
mobile," said Wilford sergeant of Largo. He ad-
vocated having dedicated lanes that could by
used only by buses and not by privately owned
"I don't know why we can't get the traffic
lights timed," Largo City Commissioner Curtis
Holmes said. He added that public transporta-
tion is good for getting to a general area, but
there needs to be alternatives to walking or
taking a taxi to a specific address.
Tampa attorney Ron Weaver said that the
county should seek federal matching grants to
buy flex-buses that would bring riders from
their neighborhoods to bullet train terminals.
But Geoff Moakley of Largo disagreed.
"Americans are on our own schedule; we
don't want to be on a bus schedule," Moakley
said. He added that systems that work in other
places might not work here because Pinellas
doesn't have the ridership to support a modern
mass-transit system. Getting from Pinellas to

In short, Fender asks each colleague to bring an idiot to dinner.
At fist, Conrad's conscience kicks in. But just as he's about to
bag the whole banquet, he discovers IRS employee Barry Speck
(steve Carell), who steps in front of Tim's sports car ... and gets
hit. An amateur taxidermist, Barry gives dead mice a second life'
by using his taxidenny skills on them and dressing them in tiny
human outfits, and finally placing them in miniature scenarios,
based on works of art, milestones of history or even his life, as he
would wish it.
Tim cannot resist such a specimen as Barry and he winds up
inviting him to join the roster of Fender's dinner party guests.
But Barry, on the other hand, sees Tim as more than the driver
of the vehicle that could have killed him, he considers him his
new best friend, and soon, the drone accountant's bumbling
good intentions set off a tornado of destruction in Tim's near-

Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric but brilliant
playwright. When Henry's not dancing alone to obscure music
or singing operettas, he's performing with great panache the
duties of an "extra man," a social escort for the wealthy widows
of Manhattan high society. These two men, separated in age by
more than 40 years, develop a volatile mentor/apprentice rela-

neighbor, from drunken nonagenarians to a shady Swiss hunch-
back, Louis and Henry form a memorable bond that bridges
Cast: Lucas Black, Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray
and Gerald McRaney
Director: Aaron Schneider
For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods
recluse known as Felix Bush (Robert Duvall). People say he's
done all manner of unspeakable things that he's killed in cold
blood, that he's in league with the Devil, that he has strange
powers and they avoid him like the plague.
Then, one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad
of cash, saying he wants to buy a funeral. It's not your usual fu-
neral for the dead Felix wants. On the contrary, he wants a "liv-
ing funeral," in which anyone who ever had heard a story about
him will come to tell it, while he takes it all in.
Sensing a big payday in the offing, fast-talking funeral home-
owner Frank Quinn (Bill Murray) enlists his gentlemanly young
apprentice, Buddy Robinson (Lucas Black), to win over Felix's
business. Buddy is no stranger to Felix's dark reputation, but
what he discovers is that behind Felix's surreal plan lies a very
real and long-held secret that must get out. As the funeral ap-
proaches, the mystery which involves the widow Mattie Darrow
(Sissy Spacek), the only person in town who ever got close to
Felix, and the Illinois preacher Charlie Jackson (Bill Cobbs), who
refuses to speak at his former friend's funeral- only deepens.
But on the big day, Felix is in no mood to listen to other peo-
ple spinning made-up anecdotes about him. This time, he's
the one who is going to do the telling about why he has been
hiding out in the woods.

The concert will include material from Plant's new Round
album, due out in September.
Billed as "a timeless plunge into authentic Americana,"
the album was co-produced by Plant and Nashville legend
and guitarist Buddy Miller.
"Buddy's integral to this album, you can hear his taste
all over the instrumentation," said Plant in a press release
from Big Hassle Publicity. "Buddy's zone is beautiful, with a
lot of reflections going back into mid-Fifties rockabilly, the
singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along
with the soul and R&rB from Memphis."
In addition to Miller on guitar, the album boasts a diverse
group of musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Darrell
Scott, who provides the mandolin, guitar, accordion, pedal,
lap steel and banjo lines; country singer-songwriter Patty
Griffmn who adds the main vocal foils to Plant's lead parts;
Byron House on bass; and Marco Giovino on percussion.
The tour, which kicked off in Memphis, Tenn., earlier this
month, boasts the same lineup of musicians who appear
and play on the album. The former frontman of the iconic
classic rock outfit Led Zeppelin, Plant is putting finishing
touches on the planned release in the studio.
Of course, for rock and roll afficionados, Plant's name is
nearly synonymous with the iconic rock band Led Zeppelin.
Beginning in 1968, Plant, along with Jimi Page, John Paul
Jones and John Bonham, Led Zeppelin released nine stu-
dio albums showcasing a heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock
sound. Considered one of the most influential bands of all
time, album sales have topped 200 million worldwide.
For Plant, who has enjoyed a long and successful solo

What was considered to be
too small to use a couple of
weeks ago, the tiny pilchards
have grown up just enough to
be cast out underneath a
float or fished on the bottom
with a small sinker. Make
sure that you use a quarter
inch mesh cast net for these
little guy's or you'll have quite
a mess on your hands.
These baits may seem too
small to be appealing to larger
game fish like trout, snook
and reds, but think again;
remember, fishing is a game
of matching the hatch. So
it's time to shrink your

Tarpon fishing along the
beach slowed down quite a bit
this past week. We should
begin to start seeing a few
more fish as we get a little
further away from the full
moon. Target jetties and
deeper areas right along the
beach that are holding
schools of threadfins. On
those flat calm mornings the

Recreational and commercial harvest
seasons for lobster in Florida reopens
The regular commercial and recreation-
al lobster season runs Aug. 6 to March
Commercial fishermen may begin
putting traps in the water Aug. 1, and
recreational and commercial fishermen
may harvest spiny lobsters starting Aug.
Spiny lobsters must have a carapace
length greater than 3 inches to be legal
take during open seasons, and divers
must possess a measuring device and
measure all lobsters in the water.
During the two-day spiny lobster sport
season, recreational divers and snorkelers
can take up to six lobsters per person
daily in Monroe County and Biscayne Na-
tional Park waters and 12 lobsters per
person daily in other Florida waters. They
may possess no more than the daily bag
limit of lobsters while on the water.
When off the water, they may possess
the daily bag limit on the first day and
double the daily bag limit on the second
day. Possession limits are enforced on
and off the water during the two-day
Night diving for spiny lobsters during
the two-day sport season is illegal in
Monroe County, and all harvest of lob-
sters is prohibited in John Pennekamp
Coral Reef state Park during the two-day
Lobster harvest also is prohibited at all
times in Everglades National Park, Dry
Tortugas National Park, Biscayne
Bay/Card Sound Spiny Lobster sanctu-
ary, certain areas in Pennekamp Park,
and no-take areas in the Florida Keys Na-
tional Marine sanctuary.
During the regular season, the daily
recreational bag and on-the-water posses-
sion limit is six spiny lobsters per person.
Lobster harvesters must have a saltwa-
ter fishing license and a spiny lobster per-
mit to recreationally harvest spiny
lobsters unless they are exempt from
recreational license requirements. Infor-
mation about these licenses and permits
is available online at MyFWC.com/Li-
Divers and snorkelers must display a
"divers-down" flag (red with a white diago-
nal stripe) while in the water.

Despite the most careful of
driving and all of the numer-
ous safety features that are
now available on cars, acci-
dents do happen.
Although it is tempting to
cross your fingers and just
hope that you will never be in
an accident, superstitious
gestures are unlikely to offer
much protection. But you of
course insure your auto to
protect you from financial loss
if your car is damaged or you
damage someone else's, but

Do you have any pain, stiff-
ness, loss of consciousness.
dizziness, tingling, numb-
ness, feeling of vagueness or
inability to concentrate?
These are all symptoms of in-
jury from your accident.
These are all signs that you
should seek medical attention
now. The worst thing that you
can do is wait to see if it gets
better, as most of the time it
just gets worse, and will con-
tinue to get worse.
Injuries treated promptly
are much more easily re-
solved than those that are al-
lowed to continue for a
prolonged period of time.
Sometimes, the problems
seem to be slowly dying down
only to flare up again. This
can become chronic if not
predicting what injuries you
will suffer in an accident,
there are injuries that com-
monly occur with various
types of accident.
In low speed accidents, in-
juries are most likely to be
the result of unexpected,
rapid movement of the body
at the moment of impact.
These injuries can include
muscle strain and bruises
from the seat belt or air bag.
however, more serious in-
juries can occur.
Accidents that occur at
speeds greater than 10 mph
involve more rapid body
movements and possible im-
pact with objects inside the
car, such as the steering
wheel, windshield, or dash-
board. Common injuries in
these situations include
shoulder, head, or knee

There are important rea-
sons to seek chiropractic care
immediately after an accident
if you have any indication
that you may have some in-
jury. First and foremost, you
have got to make certain that
your injury is not more seri-
ous than you believe. Most
apparently minor injuries can
become chronic if not treated
in a timely and effective man-
ner. Taking pain medications
only cover symptoms and do
not treat the problem! Appro-
priate attention to your trau-
matized body will ensure that
you heal fully and in the cor-
If you have been in an auto
accident, remember this ad-
vice, and call your family doc-
tor of chiropractic for an
examination. If there are in-
juries other than those that
they can appropriately ad-
dress, they will refer you to
the most appropriate doctor
for care. If not, and you do
not seem to have injuries that
require more than observa-
tion, they will tell you. If you
need care, they will help to
set up the most appropriate
plan of care for you.
There are many factors that
influence the outcome of your
accident. Some of the more
common factors include the
speed at which you were tray-
eling (yes, you can be injured
in a low speed fender bender
with little or no damage to
your car!), whether you were
weaning a seat belt, whether
you saw the accident happen-
ing, and whether you had
time to react and brace for it-
where on the car the impact
occurred, and many others.

/ am from Louisiana and / know our beaches are our home,
our way of life and our livelihood. Protecting the coast and
cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.
Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup
At BR we have taken tull responsibility tor the cleanup In the Gult. We are
committed to keeping you informed.
Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a
Shore Cleanup Assessment Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanup begins
immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from 17 staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people
are involved in the cleanup operation.
If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a
team to clean it up.
Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the
size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds,
and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the
Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has
been removed. As a result, in most cases when oil reaches a beach, it is
even possible to keep it open.
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has
been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned
up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs
of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.
Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not
always be perfect, but we will make this right.
