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

By WAYNE AYERSBELLEAIR BLUFFS E&E Stakeout Grills celebrated Chef Erwin and his assistants will soon have a new space for preparing their culinary specialties. The popular eatery in The Plaza at 100 N. Indian Rocks Road will be closing for four-tosix weeks beginning July 31 to allow for construction of a stateof-the-art kitchen facility. The shutdown is necessary to replace the ceiling, wall and floors and install the latest equipment, said Cathy Hall, the restaurants spokesperson. The renovation is the first total kitchen makeover since E&E began operation in 1985 as Eugens Restaurant, named after owner Eugen Fuhrmann. The restaurant was closed in 1994 for a partial renovation, and a bar update was done in 2002, Hall said, but this time the focus is on the restaurants heart, its kitchen. We are streamlining the kitchen with more efficient equipment, a whole new floor plan and set-up, creating a much nicer cooking environment, Hall said. This will be a lot easier on the staff, including the serving staff. See E&E, page 4A By TOM GERMONDLARGO City officials will launch a $60,700 study on odors in its sewage system, acting upon complaints from residents of at least two mobile home parks Many residents of the Paradise Island and Fairway Village complained to the Largo City Commission last year about sewage odors at several meetings. A Paradise Island representative said the park has spent thousands of dollars on the issue and contended that the city is responsible for the problem. City commissioners told staff Oct. 19 to meet with Paradise Island representatives to investigate sewage problems in the development, which has about 830 residents. At their July 19 meeting, a couple of commissioners questioned why the process has taken so long to initiate the study. It seems to be taking forever to get done what we started a year ago nearly, Commissioner Mary Black said. City Engineer Leland Dicus said the process used to hire a consultant wasnt staffs preferred method. The city initiated a special effort to form an agreement with a firm it hasnt worked with in the past, and several officials, including the city attorney, were involved in the process, extending the time frame. We also have been very proactive in working step by step with representatives of Paradise Island Mobile Home Park. So we have been making efforts to coordinate meetings with them and providing additional time and comment to give them the opportunity to give us feedback, Dicus said. Dicus said the park was provided a copy of the scope of work and fee.

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

The repair work is scheduled to be complete, and the road completely opened, by 6 a.m. on Saturday, July 30. CSX Transportation Inc., with assistance from Pinellas County, will be performing emergency repairs on a damaged concrete transition panel between the railroad tracks and the roadway. Two-way traffic will be maintained in this area by utilizing the southbound lanes to keep one lane open in each direction. Drivers are advised to use alternate routes during the repair project. The primary detour route for this project is Seminole Boulevard. Variable message boards have been posted to notify motorists of the scheduled work. Officials believe that the repair will require more time than was needed for the McMullen Booth railroad crossing repair in June.City accepting applications for 2011 businessfriendly Citizens AcademyLARGO The fall Citizens Academy will have a special focus: allowing local business owners and operators to talk with city commissioners, learn about downtown development and ways to make their businesses safe. Academy participants will tour key facilities, learn the challenges facing future development, talk with leaders about current issues and events affecting Largo, and work side by side with city staff members to learn about the essential functions they serve. The 11-session curriculum begins Sept. 12. Classes will be held Monday evenings from 6 to 8:30 through Dec. 5. Continuing education credits will be offered. Applications for the 2011 Business Friendly Citizens Academy can be found online at Largo.com. Application deadline is Saturday, Aug. 20. For more information, please call 587-6710. Briefs
4A Leader, July 28, 2011 STUDY, from page 1AWe incorporated their feedback and they were aware we are presenting it tonight and thanked us for keeping them involved in the process, Dicus said. Park manager Nancy Perry said July 21 that she is satisfied with the citys efforts to allow Paradise Island to participate in the selection of the consultants. We are very pleased the city is working with us, she said. Paradise Island believes that the consultants selected will do a good job, Perry said. Though the park continues to have odors and the study may take months, a few months versus years of continued smell will really help, she said. The consultants may undertake two sampling events. If sampling in dry weather is conducted in the winter, the entire study is expected to be completed by spring. The study, which will be conducted by Webster Environmental Associates Inc. of Louisville, Ky., will include the 142nd and 150th avenue areas between Lake Avenue and 58th Street. It encompasses Paradise Island as well as historically high odor and corrosion locations. Lift stations and force mains that potentially contribute to the odors and corrosion in the corridor will be included in the study. Once the study is completed, city officials will bring recommendations to the City Commission to lower odors in different areas. Commissioners Curtis Holmes complimented staff because once upon a time we were focused in exclusively Paradise Island, but the study area under consideration is rather lengthy. I can see why it has taken so long to put this package together. Because if you have had cave-ins and everything else along this system, I just have a feeling this has not been Paradise Island picking on the city of Largo, and I applaud what you are doing here, Holmes said. Commissioners voted 7-0 to approve the agreement with Webster. FOUNDATION, from page 1AAlthough participating in Enterprise Village is only a requirement for students of public schools in Pinellas County, private schools are often having their students complete the program as well. The idea has also been spreading on a national level and across international waters as well. Across the United States, similar programs are popping up called Biz Towns. When national delegates from other states or those from other countries come to Florida, they are given choices for which cities theyd like to visit; most of them pick Largo to see the village, Eitel said. Japan and Nigeria have representatives that have visited the village. Japan created a similar type of program and others are interested as well, she said. Last school year, about 10,000 students went through the program and about 8,000 completed the neighboring program, Finance Park. Finance Park is for eighth grade students, is geared toward budgeting and goes into deeper detail than Enterprise Village. Now, students will be given a scenario with their age, number of children, income, taxes and other information and will be responsible for buying a car, grocery shopping and other life expenses. In this second stage, the students will start having to be more independent and work alone as opposed to working together to keep their business going like they were in Enterprise Village. The students also will learn about legal situations and investments. Ive met (now) 20-somethings that went through the two programs and looking back they say it was one of their best memories. This experience really resonates with them, Eitel said. One student we had last year said that her mother told her she would learn about what it was like in the real world and she told me her mother was right, she said. The Pinellas County Education Foundation has various other programs in place, such as their Doorways program that gives college scholarships to low-income families that are on the free or reduced lunch plans in countywide schools. Last year, 314 students were given a Doorway scholarship. As Enterprise Village celebrates its 25th anniversary, Stavros, now in his 80s, is still very much involved with the company. He made a speech earlier this year about the programs success and hopes for the future. I have friends who have kids in third and fourth grade that cant wait to be in fifth grade, specifically for Enterprise Village, Eitel said.

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Funding for social actions programs was one of the items discussed July 19 as Pinellas County commissioners began work to tweak the proposed budget for fiscal year 2012. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSalas budget presented July 12 was void of funding for social action programs; however, commissioners, with the exception of Nancy Bostock, were uncomfortable with that scenario and asked staff to go back and make adjustments. Commissioners got their first look at LaSalas final budget at the July 12 regular meeting. Since that time, they have been reviewing more than 5,000 pages of documents to make note of questions and suggestions for changes. Dan Mann of Largo, president and CEO of Lighthouse of Pinellas for the Blind and Visually Impaired, spoke to commissioners about the need for social action funding. He said the 2010 census showed that Tampa Bay had a high concentration of seniors and many need help with their vision. Mann said he appreciated the hard work done to balance the countys budget, but cautioned that people who depend on services from his organization and others would be heavily impacted by decisions made today. Betty Goldie, of St. Petersburg, representing the organization Faith and Action for Strength Together, continued to push for funding for affordable housing, saying FAST did not want to wait until 2017 for Penny for Pinellas money to be made available for a land assembly fund. Do the right thing and see if you can find that funding you promised us, she said. Commissioner Ken Welch came up with the most questions for the first budget discussion session. He spoke about the need for $10,000 to restore funding for full-time employees at the Homeless Leadership Network. Bostock, who serves on the Homeless Leadership Network board with Welch, said she could support partial funding to restore the employee position, but she also voiced her concern about dipping into the stabilization fund. Thats ($10,000) not a lot of money, but if we do that (OK more funding requests) for the next four hours, she said. She recommended looking at all the existing funding for homeless services. Commission Chair Susan Latvala suggested starting a list of funding requests and the consensus was to put the Homeless Leadership Networks needs on that list. Welch then brought up the big question what to do about social action funding. I understand why it was eliminated, he said. But, he also said the funding was important because of the way it allowed organizations to leverage their dollars to meet their needs. Latvala said part of the problem with social action funding was the way it was administered. Each year, they have to jump through hoops (groups applying for money), she said. The grant process is very time consuming arbitrary. She suggested looking into ways to streamline the process to make it easier to administer. Commissioner Karen Seel said that new criteria could be used to determine the need for funding and consider whether the loss of county dollars would prohibit a group from being eligible to receive federal or state money. She said some services were more critical than others. For example, services that help keep people in their homes keep that population from becoming dependent on other services, she said. Commissioner Norm Roche agreed with Seel, saying he supported making a minimal investment to maximize return. Bostock said the board needed to look at the other cuts being made. Not that the agencies dont do good work and theres not a great need, she said. However, she said there were other bigger concerns, including no pay raises for employees, the need to increase water bills and finding money to pay for emergency medical services. Its hard to give money, when were cutting, she said. Welch said he had to argue from the other side. Wise investments keep us from having to spend money down the line, he said. These arent Cadillac programs. He said he would support restoring $360,000 to the social action fund budget. Latvala suggested asking staff to come up with ideas on how to find the money. She said she also would like to see an elimination of the process of awarding grants. She prefers a process whereby the staff awards the money, not a committee. Commissioners agreed with Latvalas proposal except Bostock, who said she would not support going in this direction. Welch also said he would support the request from FAST to provide money for the land assembly fund in 2012 instead of 2017 due to promises made before the last election requesting renewal of Penny for Pinellas. He also said land prices were cheaper now through the foreseeable future. Roche said he would have to be the bad guy on this. He said he understood the promise made by former commissioners, but that priority had to take precedent over promises. He said $150 million had already been spent on land acquisition. I dont believe it is our job to make land investments for affordable housing, he said. Roche would like to see more focus on problems such as flooding and job creation so people can afford to rent and buy their own homes. I disagree. A promise is a promise, Commissioner John Morroni said. He said recent economic times had taught the commission a big lesson about making promises for the future. However, promises were made in the past, he said. Commissioners asked for an update on availability of money already allocated to the housing trust fund and other affordable housing programs. Bostock said she doesnt believe the commission should give priority to any special interest group. We owe the community the best use of the money, she said. It is our responsibility to allocate money to meet the communitys needs. Discussion turned to borrowing money from other county funds to provide money for the land assembly fund, beginning in 2012. Commissioner Neil Brickfield objected to that plan. In the end, commissioners voted 4-3 to have staff bring back options on funding methods for the land assembly fund. Brickfield, Bostock and Roche voted no. The three commissioners were not on the board when money was promised to pay for affordable housing from Penny for Pinellas funds. In other budget decisions, the commission said no to a request from Palm Harbor to increase its millage, citing past protests from the residents against it. But they agreed to put a request for $42,000 from the East Lake Library on the list for possible funding. The remainder of the meeting was a discussion on how to proceed with a review of the proposed budget. The consensus was to go over two or more funding areas at a series of future meetings. The commissioners are expected to approve tentative millage rates on July 28. Additional discussions will take place at subsequent meetings up until the final public budget hearing on Sept. 27. The fiscal year begins Oct. 1.Commissioners discuss proposed budget changesCommissioners got their first look at LaSalas final budget at the July 12 regular meeting. Since that time, they have been reviewing more than 5,000 pages of documents to make note of questions and suggestions for changes.Annual water system maintenance program begins Aug. 1The method of water treatment utilized by Pinellas County Utilities and its wholesale customers will be temporarily modified between Aug. 1 and Sept. 12. This short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those impacted by this maintenance program include Pinellas County Utilities customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Oldsmar. Many communities using chloramine annually utilize chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County Utilities switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions.

Speaking at the monthly luncheon of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, Steve Messing, president of the retail division of Kitson and Partners, said the long-awaited project on 60 acres at the northwest corner of Bay Pines Boulevard and 100th Way will include a net 24 acres for residential use, which a large portion will be devoted to about 330 apartments. The remainder of the 483 residential units will be senior housing and/or townhomes, Messing said. We have an apartment guy thats interested, said Messing. If things work out, they would submit a site plan (to the city) in the third or fourth quarter. He said grading and permits should be complete at some point in the fourth quarter and construction crews could start moving dirt in the first quarter of 2012. Messing said Kitson, which is doing business locally as KE Bay Pines Properties LLC, is seeking contractors to handle the construction of a 125-room hotel, 204,000 square feet of retail space, the residential component and a restaurant. Each contractor would be responsible for producing its respective site plan, which would need city approval. Messing said the hotel would likely be four stories, such as a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn, but no user is interested at this time due to market conditions. Messing is also seeking an unspecified number of retail anchors but none are lined up at this point. Until we get the retail anchors, I wont be able to get other retailers, he said. The property will feature 50 useable acres after reconfiguration of the ponds. On July 12, the city approved a development agreement with Kitson, as well as a change in the citys future land use map and zoning map. Bob McClureCity to buy out Pickles leaseCLEARWATER A decade ago, the city-owned Harborview Center boasted a convention facility, a Stein Mart department store and the Pickles Plus Too deli. Today, only the deli remains, and that too will soon be history. The city has wanted for some time to close the entire money losing Harborview Center, but there was a problem. Pickles lease still has 8.5 years to run. City officials tried to negotiate a buyout with Pickles owners, Joe and Kim Benedettini, but the siblings claimed the citys aggressive bargaining tactics amounted to harassment, and they filed a lawsuit. On July 21, the City Council unanimously approved an agreement to end that lawsuit. The city will pay the Benedettinis $668,000 in exchange for their promise to move out before March 1, 2012. If they are not out by then, they face fines of $1,000 a day. In the meantime, they sought and received a waiver of their contractual obligation to stay open until 7 p.m. They do not want to serve dinner any longer, City Attorney Pam Akin said. There was no discussion of the fate of the Harborview Center building, but it is widely believed that the city will raze the structure to avoid the $60,000 annual cost of maintaining it. Nobody is happy about this (settlement), Mayor Frank Hibbard said. But its the right thing to do, and we have to move on.City sets aside $150K to settle three accident claimsCLEARWATER At its July 21 meeting, the City Council earmarked $150,000 for the settlement of three accident claims involving cityowned vehicles. Thomas Quayle Jr. will receive $60,000 for injuries he received when a police car rear-ended his stopped car. He was treated for back, leg and neck pain, as well as headaches. Wilbur Taylor will be paid $50,000 for a herniated disc and lower back strain he sustained when a fire engine backed into the path of his vehicle. Gerard Gregory will get $40,000 for the shoulder, neck and back pain he suffered after a Gas Department vehicle rear-ended his stopped car. Lester R. Dailey E&E, from page 1AHall termed the closing period a very reasonable timeframe for the renovation work needed. She said the restaurant staff was notified of the shutdown at least six months ago. In the meantime, E&Es sister restaurant, the popular Guppys on the Beach in Indian Rocks Beach, will be offering some of the most popular E&E dishes during the closure period. Prime rib, never a Guppys menu item, will be served on Sunday nights, Hall said. The rodeo steak also will be available at Guppys. The E&E dishes will be prepared at Guppys by a different chef in a different kitchen, Hall pointed out. But she said they will be as close to E&Es preparation as we can get it. Customers will get a chance to have their own favorite E&E entre featured at Guppys, through a contest being held on E&Es Facebook page. Followers can post an E&E dish they would like to see served. The entre with the most votes will be added to the menu, Hall said. During the shutdown period, E&Es customer reward cards will be honored at Guppys and Mystic Fish in Palm Harbor, which are under the same ownership. E&E gift certificates will not be accepted, however, due to different corporate structures among the restaurants, Hall said.Plaza merchants sales stimulus planPlaza merchants have banded together with a positive plan to help minimize any impact E&Es closure period will have on their businesses. To stimulate sales, they are offering Plaza Bucks, good for $10 off on any $50 purchase during August at participating merchants. Tami List, manager of 432 West Side, said the store had given Bucks to customers in the past. We proposed the idea (to the merchants) and it snowballed into Plaza Bucks, List said. Connected to the Plaza Bucks is a raffle, with prizes consisting of two $200 E&E gift certificates and 10 $50 certificates, redeemable at any of 10 participating merchants. The raffle is entered by filling out a tear-off form attached to each Plaza Buck, said Brian Franzese of Bella Vino Wine and Cheese Market. A drawing of the winners will be held the first week in September, he said. Franzese said he and co-owner/wife Cheryl see an opportunity to build their bar sales while E&E is closed. Briefs

Although that portion did not sustain fire damage, it did have a significant amount of smoke and water damage. At least 30 people were displaced and the Red Cross is assisting them with temporary living arrangements. The building is uninhabitable. According to a preliminary investigation, the fire started in a third floor unit. The fire does not appear to be suspicious at this time.Man injured when gas ignitesSEMINOLE A Seminole man was seriously burned about 4:45 p.m. July 21 after gas ignited while he was working on his girlfriends vehicle. Pinellas County sheriffs deputies responded to a report of a vehicle fire at 10816 61st Ave. N. in Seminole and found Joseph P. Williamson, 31, being treated by paramedics for serious burns to his arms. He was transported by helicopter to Tampa General Hospital where he remains. According to witnesses, Williamson was using an electric leaf blower to siphon gasoline from a 1997 Saturn owned by Sommer M. Brocuglio, 34, of Seminole when a spark from the blower ignited the fire. Williamson was attempting to check the gas tank for sugar because he believed the vehicle had been tampered with when he discovered the gas lid open. The investigation continues.Teen charged with first-degree murderOLDSMAR An Oldsmar teen was arrested and charged with first-degree murder July 24 in connection with the death of another teen. A citizen walking his dog found a Tarpon Springs man bleeding and unconscious just after 6:30 p.m. July 21 in a wooded area at the south end of Gray Bark Drive in Oldsmar. Pinellas County sheriffs detectives identified the injured man as Tyler James Slipko, 18. Slipko was taken by ambulance to a local hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. The Sheriffs Office announced the afternoon of July 24 that Slipko had died. Diamonte Weatherspoon, 16, of Oldsmar was arrested, accused of murdering Slipko. According to the sheriffs report, Slipkos family and friends say he was last seen about 2 p.m. July 21 in a 1994 two-door Toyota Camry, champagne in color, with Florida tag 721-DKS. The vehicle, which belonged to a family member, was missing and considered stolen. Detectives are not releasing many details about the homicide because it is still an open active investigation. However, they are saying Weatherspoon shot Slipko, took his vehicle and left him for dead. Witnesses who know Weatherspoon say this was not a random act of violence. Weatherspoon and Slipko were acquainted. Detectives arrested Weatherspoon July 24 at the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center where he was already being held for theft of a firearm. Detectives also recovered the 1994 Toyota Camry that Slipko was last seen driving. Witnesses also told detectives they had seen Weatherspoon driving the victims vehicle after the shooting. The investigation continues.Help needed to ID would-be ATM thiefPALM HARBOR Pinellas County sheriffs deputies are seeking help to identify a man who attempted to break into an ATM at the BB&T Bank, 35098 U.S. 19 N. in Palm Harbor. The suspect, described as a clean-shaven white male, age 20-something, was caught on security camera photos attempting to break into the ATM on Friday, July 8, 9:10 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 12, 12:05 a.m. Deputies are releasing images of the suspect and believe someone will recognize him. Anyone who has information related to the suspect is asked to contact Deputy Karl Gwynne at 582-6200, or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward, contact Crime Stoppers of Pinellas at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).Officer cleared in shooting deathLARGO Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney Bernie McCabe determined that the shooting death of Nicholas John Pesare by Largo police Officer N. Hansmann was justifiable homicide under state law, police reports said. Hansmann, who has been on paid administrative leave since the incident, will be returning to full duty. According to police reports, Pesare, 18, was shot after he threatened officers with a knife when they tried to make contact with him at the Laguna Vista Apartments, 555 Belcher Road S. The domestic dispute was between a mother and her adult son, Pesare, who had been using narcotics and was threatening suicide, the Largo police report said. As a result of the investigation conducted by my office, I have determined that Officers Nathaniel Hansmann and James Shinn were in the performance of their legal duties when they were confronted by Nicholas John Pesare who was armed with a knife, McCabe wrote, in a letter to Police Chief John Carroll. Without provocation of any kind, Pesare raised the knife in a threatening manner and quickly advanced towards the two officers. Both officers were in fear for their own lives as well as the lives of each other when Officer Hansmann fired his pistol. Man arrested for planting hoax bombLARGO A Largo man was arrested July 21 accused of planting a hoax bomb under his own vehicle. Jeffrey Boreman, 37, was charged with a seconddegree felony after Largo police determined he had built and planted a hoax bomb on his own vehicle before taking it to a local business for an oil change. Police were called to the Jiffy Lube at 13763 Walsingham Road about 5 p.m. July 16 after a technician found a suspicious device attached to the undercarriage of Boremans car. Largo police called the Tampa Bomb Squad for assistance. The bomb squad, along with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, responded to assist. A robot was used to remove the device from the vehicle. A large number of businesses near the Jiffy Lube were closed and evacuated and a portion of Walsingham Road was closed for several hours before authorities determined the device was a fake. According to information from Largo police, Boreman initially was listed as the victim because the suspicious device had been attached to his vehicle. However, things changed when Largo police began their investigation. A detective noticed that one of the pieces used to build the hoax bomb was from a brand of watch, specifically sold at Target. The investigator at Target was asked to research the sale of that type of watch in the general area in the last 30 days. The investigator found that four of the watches had been sold. Surveillance video showed that one of the watches was purchased by a man who fit Boremans description. The man also was seen purchasing batteries and a type of glue that authorities believe was used in the making of the fake device. A photograph of the man was sent to Largo police, who confirmed the man was Boreman. Boreman went to the Largo Police Department on the morning of July 21 to provide more information about the incident. At the time, he was still claiming to be the victim, police said. In an interview, he allegedly admitted planting the fake device. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and released within hours on $10,000 bond.IRB man charged with murdering his wifeINDIAN ROCKS BEACH An Indian Rocks Beach man was arrested July 22 after telling Pinellas County sheriffs deputies he had murdered his wife. Deputies responded to a call about 6:30 p.m. July 21 and found David R. Ernst, 45, of 1916 First St., being treated by paramedics. Ernst had reportedly tried to kill himself by taking unknown medications. Initially, Ernst was taken to a local hospital where he was being guarded by deputies, according to the sheriffs report. He was released from the hospital and booked in the Pinellas County Jail, charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of his wife, Darlene M. Mayfield, 59. While investigating the attempted suicide, deputies learned Ernst had made statements to a neighbor that he had killed his wife. When deputies entered the residence to check on Ernsts wife, they discovered a womans decomposing body in the bathtub of the upstairs bathroom. They immediately notified Homicide Unit detectives who took over the investigation. The body was badly decomposed and detectives could not immediately make identification, or observe any obvious signs of trauma. Detectives confirmed the body was Mayfields on July 22, and her next of kin was notified. Detectives also interviewed Ernst, who allegedly confessed he had suffocated his wife approximately two weeks ago during an argument then placed her in the bathtub. He told detectives he had wanted to commit suicide and attempted it by taking a large amount of medication. He then went to a neighbor and told him what he had done. The investigation continues.Five injured in condominium fireCLEARWATER Five adults were taken to local hospitals July 22, suffering from smoke inhalation after firefighters rescued them from the third floor of Inverness Condominiums, 2595 Countryside Blvd. Clearwater Fire & Rescue responded to a structure fire about 2:40 a.m., according to a media alert. Firefighters found heavy smoke and flames shooting from the building. Several people were trapped on the third floor. Firefighters rescued five people from windows and balconies with ground ladders. Firefighters also rescued one cat. No life-threatening injuries were reported and no firefighters were injured. Nearly 30 fire apparatus with as many as 100 firefighters responded from Clearwater, Safety Harbor, Dunedin, Largo, Oldsmar and Tarpon Springs. Firefighters had the fire under control by 6 a.m., although work continued to put out hot spots for another two hours. Firefighters were continuing to monitor the structure for flare-ups, which, authorities say, is common with large fires. Half of the building sustained heavy fire damage with portions of the roof completely gone. FirefightPolice beat Police beat David R. Ernst

CLEARWATER Circuit Judge J. Thomas McGrady, chief judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit, has been named by the American Board of Trial Advocates as its Florida Jurist of the Year. McGrady was honored on July 23 during the banquet that concludes Florida Board of Trial Advocates annual conference at the Hammock Beach Resort in Flagler County. ABOTA, a national organization of trial lawyers who handle complex litigation, is dedicated to more effective representation for court litigants and a more efficient administration of justice. Membership is by invitation only and is made up of an equal number of attorneys who represent plaintiffs and defendants. The Tampa Bay ABOTA Chapter nominated McGrady as an excellent, fair and well-prepared judge, who is a splendid example of what a judge should be. Rather incredibly, Chief Judge McGrady maintains his patience with litigants and lawyers while effectively steering a busy and expansive circuit featuring an increasing caseload, 69 judges, nine locations and an administrative staff. The 69 judges preside in the nine courthouses of the Sixth Circuit, comprised of Pasco and Pinellas counties. Last year, more than 328,500 new cases (criminal, civil and traffic) were filed in the circuit. But more importantly, McGrady has been an unvarying voice for the courts, constantly reminding citizens of the why an independent judiciary is necessary to protect the principles on which the nation was founded. The local Chapters letter nominating McGrady for the state award recognized his work on behalf of all courts by stating, Though reserved by nature, Chief Judge McGrady is a powerful, if somewhat unheralded advocate for the independence of the judiciary in the face of recent attempts to politicize the judiciary. Those in the know are aware of Judge McGradys tireless and effective behind-the-scenes efforts to maintain a judicial system that is open to all and free from the influence of financial and political power. For the past two years, McGrady has managed the circuit one of Floridas largest through diminishing budgets, staff cuts Chief circuit judge recognizedand a mortgage foreclosure backlog that threatened to bring civil court proceedings to a virtual halt throughout the state. Under McGradys guidance, the Sixth Circuit was among the first in the state to implement a Supreme Courtmandated mediation program. Pending mortgage foreclosure cases have been reduced in the circuit by approximately 14 percent over the past year. McGrady just began his second term as chief judge, having been re-elected in a meeting of the circuits 68 other judges. In 2009, he was elected to succeed Circuit Judge Robert J. Morris Jr., who was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Second District Court of Appeal.The chief judge is constitutionally responsible for the administrative supervision of the courts and court staff within the Sixth Circuit, which serves almost 1.5 million residents in the two counties. McGrady has been on the bench in the Sixth Circuit since August 1999, when then-Gov. Jeb Bush appointed him to fill a vacancy as a County Judge in Pinellas. He was elected for a full term without opposition in September 2000, and in December 2001, Bush again chose McGrady, this time for a vacant Circuit Judgeship. In 2004 and 2010, he was elected without opposition for full sixyear terms. During his judicial service, he has been assigned to the Family Law Division, where he was administrative judge, the Civil Division, and both misdemeanor and felony Criminal Divisions.

DAILEYCLEARWATER The citys onagain, off-again plan to test a prototype system of red light cameras at key intersections is on again. In a move on July 21, the City Council reversed its surprise decision of July 18 to indefinitely shelve the controversial plan. City Council-watchers went to the councils July 18 work session expecting to see the council recommend the approval of a contract for Redflex Inc., the frontrunner of five bidders on the project, to install a prototypeClearwaters red-light camera plan gets green lightsystem of eight cameras at two intersections on Belcher Road known for their high numbers of red light tickets and crashes. But they were amazed when instead the council unanimously agreed to shelve the program until the litigation regarding similar camera ordinances in other cities is settled and the State Legislature decides whether it wants to wade into the fray. Even Councilman John Doran, who spearheaded the camera program, was in favor of waiting. So the council-watchers were astounded three days later when at the councils July 21 meeting, Mayor Frank Hibbard said that he had changed his mind and now wanted to proceed with the camera program. Im not comfortable with cameras generally. It smacks of Big Brother, Hibbard said. But were facing budget woes and its expensive to pay police officers to issue tickets that cameras can issue at no cost to the city while cops are doing work that cant be done by machines. He added that he had recently spoken with two state legislators who dont foresee any legislative problems for red light camera systems in Florida cities. What were actually doing is providing an evidence package for your police department, a Redflex spokesman told the council, adding that the photos would be reviewed by either a police officer or a certified technician who would decide whether to issue a ticket. At $158, a camera-generated ticket would be cheaper than a policeissued one for the same offense and would carry no points against the drivers license. The spokesman added that a recent study in Lafayette, La., found that the rate of both T-bone crashes at red lights and rearend crashes has decreased by 60 percent in the three years since a Redflex camera system was installed. Im a great supporter of the cameras but it has to be done judiciously so it doesnt scare off the tourists, said Steve Sarnoff, a former New York City cabbie who now heads the union that represents many of the citys employees. I am concerned about the tourists, Doran replied. But quite frankly, we (locals) are the problem. Many residents have suggested that instead of installing cameras at signalized intersections, the city should increase the amount of time the light stays yellow. But Paul Bertels, head of the citys Traffic Engineering Department, said that Clearwaters traffic signals are already staying yellow for the maximum amount of time allowed by state law. In the end, Mayor Hibbard and Councilman Doran joined Councilman Bill Jonson in voting for Jonsons motion to have City Attorney Pam Akin negotiate a contract with Redflex which will not cost the city anything and may even generate a little revenue. Its about safety, Doran said. Its not about the money and its not about punishment. Until the legislature and the courts settle this, we should hold off, Vice Mayor George Cretekos said as he joined Councilman Paul Gibson in casting the two dissenting votes. Once the camera system is installed, state law requires a 30day warning period before it can start issuing $158 tickets. By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The future of the Seminole Mall lies in the hands of the courts. An Aug. 9 a show cause hearing will be the next step in a foreclosure lawsuit filed in February against the mall owners, Downtown Seminole LLC, by a holding company listed in Pinellas County court records as JPMCC 2005 CIBC13 Seminole Retail LLC. Among the possible scenarios at the show cause hearing would be for the court to issue a final judgment of foreclosure and order the Clerk of the Court to conduct a foreclosure sale. What impact, if any, the decree would have on existing leases would likely be contained within the order. City leaders view the foreclosure as a positive move that could lead to a faster transition to new ownership and ultimately mall redevelopment. (The foreclosure) is something that will make financing more realistic, said Seminole City Manager Frank Edmunds. We see this as the adjustment. At some point creditors will take a loss and the debt will be adjusted. Mark Ely, community development director for the city, said the malls appraised value is currently about $14 million and the latest estimate on the mortgage balance is $26.9 million. Ely said most foreclosure sales result in creditors receiving 15-cents to 20-cents on the dollar. If that scenario holds true in this case, the mall could sell for as little as $5 million to $6 million. This improves the development opportunity, said Edmunds. Its almost like a cleansing of the debt relationship to the value of the property. We believe when it (foreclosure process) is complete, there will be development. The city has long viewed the mall property as a possible site for a downtown Seminole with a variety of upscale retail shops and residential housing. Downtown Seminole LLC, a group of local and nationwide investors, purchased the mall in December 2006 for $35.7 million when the mall had an assessed value of $21.2 million. Prior to that deal, Seminole Mall Acquisitions LLC purchased the site in March 2002 for $20.7 million. The 424,042-square-foot mall is located on 39 acres at the northeast corner of Park Boulevard and 113th Street. The facility was originally built in 1965 and renovated in 1992. Anchor stores are Kmart, Bealls and Ross. A Publix store that was once located in the mall moved across 113th Street into a former Albertsons store in early 2009. Dollar Tree, another mall tenant, moved out in January.Seminole Mall foreclosure process continues By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH The first step toward the construction of the citys new 9/11 memorial took place July 21 with a ground-breaking ceremony at Causeway Park on 150th Avenue, west of the Tom Stuart Causeway. The memorial, which will be dedicated Sunday, Sept. 11, features an 800-pound, 11-foot steel beam from the World Trade Center towers that fell the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 in New York City. It also will include vertical glass panels inscribed with the flight numbers of the four planes that crashed that day. The concrete, glass and steel structure will cost between $80,000 and $87,000, according to committee chairwoman Pat Shontz. All costs, including labor and materials, are donated with no cost to the city. The design, which will be ushaped, is the concept of University of South Florida architecture student Greg Osburn of St. Petersburg. Im a very patriotic person and I love my country, said Osburn, who was a senior at Dixie Hollins High School when the 9/11 attacks took place. I knew immediately it was something that would change our lives and change the lives of our whole generation. It was like (the) Pearl Harbor (attack, Dec. 7, 1941 by the Japanese). Osburn, 27, and fellow USF student Eli Pano, 24, of Tampa teamed up to design the memorial. This will be the first real project that we will complete together, Pano said. Everything else has been class projects but this is the first time to build something for the public. Pano said the memorial will be a place for learning and reflecting on the tragedy. I feel like people wont forget (9/11) because theyll be confronted with it on a daily basis (as they drive by), Osburn said. There is so much traffic that goes by here that theyre never going to forget it. This is just my way of contributing from my age group. In addition to Osburn and Pano, the design team includes draftsman Greg Shontz, engineer Harold Radcliffe and contractor Mike Daniels. Members of the citys Memorial Committee are Shontz, Dewey Leigh, Robin Stach, Steve Kochick and Ken Markgraf.Construction starts on Madeira Beach 9/11 memorial Photo by BOB McCLUREPerforming the traditional groundbreaking of the 9/11 Memorial are, from left, Greg Osburn, designer; Eli Pano, designer; Steve Kochick, committee member; Mayor Travis Palladeno, Dewey Leigh, committee member; Pat Shontz, committee chairwoman; Greg Shontz, draftsman; Harold Radcliffe, engineer and Bill Mallory, fire chief/interim city manager.

He gave up one unearned run while batting one for three with a key double in the bottom of the sith inning. Up 3-1 in the bottom of the sixth, a timely walk by Mike Adams and back-to-back doubles by David Siegel, Tyler Short and Travis Carden helped widen the lead to 6-1 for Tanner Field, who came into the game and induced three ground ball outs to seal the game and the championship.

Warm water temperatures and lack of bait in the area has given anglers few options when it comes to a day on the water. Understanding what species of fish arent as bothered by the heat as others will help in making the right choices, whether youre pursuing a fish dinner or fishing for sport. Once again tarpon and sharks are at the top of the list for those wanting to do battle with some true summer giants. Tarpon are becoming more abundant at the Bay bridges and pass bridges at night as well as many deep canals and channel ways along the Intracoastal Waterway as well as many deep water spots throughout Tampa Bay. Nighttime bridge fishing has been very productive recently. Tarpon cruise the shadow lines looking for shad, ladyfish, crabs or shrimp. Anchoring up tide of the shadow line and floating back a live ladyfish right to the edge will produce a strike if the fish are there or try staying behind the shadow line. Use your trolling motor to hold your position and once a tarpon is spotted cast a buck tail jig or shallow diving plug out in front of the fish and reel it toward him. These strikes can be very exciting. Shark fishing has been very productive, whether youre targeting small 3to 5-foot blacktips or bigger bulls. Set up in deeper water adjacent to shallow flats. Areas that are holding schools of fry bait indicated by dipping turns working the surface will be more productive. Fish oily baits on the bottom such as shad, mullet or ladyfish. Typically, the bigger the bait the bigger the shark. Pompano fishing has been fair to good at times along the Bay bridges as well as pass bridges along the Intracoastal. Bounce Crazy jigs rigged on a loop knot along with a pink teaser fly along the bottom on the down current side of the pilings. Typically low light hours accompanied with a strong tide are top times to pompano fish. Until Next Week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, July 28, 2011With declining property tax values and other adverse effects of the economic downturn forcing local governments to make deep budget cuts, time is running short for residents to email, call or talk to their elected officials on what they consider their top priorities. Some residents wait until the final public hearings on budgets in September to plead with local government officials to keep funding intact for programs or services. Though their intentions are good, by then it may be too late for residents to convince their elected officials to make changes because of the need for government to adopt budgets before the start of the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. Almost every government continues to face tough choices in what services to fund and whether positions should be left unfilled. Libraries, recreational programs, parks the extent of budget cuts leaves few services left unscathed. Try as they might, officials will never please all individuals when deciding what programs and personnel can be cut. Some pressing issues affect intergovernmental funding. For instance county and city governments are working to resolve funding problems for emergency medical services. Facing a $13.4 million deficit in EMS funding, by the middle of the next fiscal year, the system will be flat out of money, County Administrator Bob LaSala said. The solutions are complex and are under much scrutiny. New funding scenarios are being proposed, and county residents could be facing an increase in EMS millage as part of the solution. In any event, maintaining the status quo is not the answer. Adopting a budget is arguably the most important task facing local governments. Recognizing that making cuts in services is often emotionally charged, elected officials are wise to seek public input to make the process appear as transparent as possible. A trend that seems to be working is for government officials to engage the public early on in the process of establishing budget priorities, through forums and town hall meetings, several months before the final public hearings are scheduled. Certainly, its not always possible for the public to attend even the most important local government meetings and speak out on critical issues, such as proposed funding cuts. But local government posts the phone numbers and emails for their elected officials on their websites. Some post their budgets, too. Have a say. Much of what happens in the world is caused by pills. You didnt know that, did you? Im not talking about the bad pills we keep reading about the uppers, downers, trankies, oxycodones that so many people abuse. Im referring to the legal and generally beneficial pills that the average person will ingest in a lifetime. You swallow an aspirin tablet to combat a backache, or maybe because your doctor says it will help to keep your blood clotting level where it should be. But no one informs you that in certain left-handed women living on pig farms in Chechnya, aspirin can trigger a compulsion to slash the tires of persons known to yearn for the return of Soviet rule. Surprising, but true. No one understands why. Most pills, acting alone, have the desired effect. But in combination with other pills, a dynamic is sometimes formed that can have far-reaching and unpredictable results. An example is what may happen when Losoparin (for high blood pressure) is taken at the same time as Maleprozik (used to combat acid reflux). The two drugs have a molecular construction that, in combination, triggers abnormally vivid dreams in which the patient believes he/she can predict the winner of the 2017 World Series. This delusion may force him to contact bookies and place his life savings on the line. Many pills are living things. They have cells, axons, dendrites, proteins and radioactive extensions that reach out to the bodys nooks and crannies, in search of both illness and good health. This is especially true in the case of cerebral crannies, notably in the anterior postpineal regions of the skull. If two beneficial drugs happen to reach a needy and pill-worthy cranny at the same time, a pharmaceutical tug of war can result in which both drugs fight it out. If the contest is not quickly resolved, white blood cells are summoned and the entire situation goes up for grabs. You may want to discuss this with your physician the next time she prescribes a new drug for you. A drug named Psickofancie is believed to have extended the Vietnam War by several months. During negotiations with the North Vietnamese, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was taking the drug to cure his tendency to drool. Only later was it learned that a Psickofancie side effect stimulated Kissingers already-pronounced tendency to suck up to officials, including enemy diplomats. This caused him to agree to truce terms that, when relayed to the White House, caused President Nixon to explode and ask, What in Gods name is Henry up to?! The peace talks were postponed and the war went on. All because of a drool drug. Several studies have shown that metallic pills such as iron and molybdenum can produce low levels of electromagnetism, especially in high-tech regions, notably Silicon Valley, Cal. In 2008 a section of the Microsoft company reported mysterious radio broadcasts generated by workers taking iron and phosphorus tablets. When these employees gathered in the company cafeteria, every cellphone within 500 yards began playing the songs of Lefty Frizzelle, a country-western balladeer popular in the 1950s. Only after several weeks of top-secret investigations was the source of the trouble revealed. Today, Microsoft and other high-tech companies require their employees to submit a list of the drugs theyre taking. In addition to prescription drug capsules and pills, herbal supplements are also believed to influence human behavior in unpredictable fashion. Herbs and roots from Asia have been used as medicines ever since 7633 B.C., when a prince of the Hfung dynasty accidentally discovered that juice from the jing-a-ling weed could cure his carbuncles. Today a popular Asian herb is ginseng, used to produce extra energy and stimulate gumption flow from the livers fiduciary valves. A puzzling side effect of ginseng occurs when its taken by stockbrokers who engage in pole vaulting. For several days after each track meet, the athletes are overcome by an obsession for Asian women. They follow these women from about 30 steps behind while making guttural yearning sounds. Only by giving up ginseng can the pole vaulters be free of this compulsion, which, as you can imagine, has caused a degree of instability in the daily Dow-Jones index. If you feel that the statements Ive made in this column seem unlikely, I suggest you show them to your friendly neighborhood pharmacist. He/she will respect you for your scholarly interest and will view you in a new light from that day forward. Bob Driver is a longtime columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun.

No one to blame here but the state Legislature. If the sheriff shuts them down or leaves them open, its the ambiguous gambling laws that have created this problem. Marianne Pasha gave a standard rendition of the definition of gambling. No problem there. The gambling activity as her definition describes it, is legal in Florida. Examples: horse and dog tracks, casinos, poker rooms, lottery games, bingo, and poker rooms. So all of the rhetoric about what is considered as gambling, and that gambling is illegal, quickly becomes a moot point. So what is it thats illegal? If its not the act of gambling, and its not the games, whats left? Law enforcement is left chasing the gray area of the states gambling laws, which allows certain people, in certain places, to offer certain gambling games to some citizens. There is no defendable rhyme or reason to these decisions. For the other citizens of Florida who wish to gamble in other ways the state cries foul. This is done under the guise of gambling is illegal. The gray area of the law is not as gray as it is favorable to some private citizens. The act of gambling is not illegal. Not being on the special list of people who are given the right to offer gambling to the public is whats illegal. There are some clear and well-defined illegal activities that are a part of the gambling attraction. These are known as the blood sports. These activities still take place in some communities, but are not approved in any way by the state. Dog fighting and cock fighting is a definite no go. Bull fighting, rat baiting, cricket and spider fighting, even canary fighting is clearly against the law along with many other such horrors. So it is demonstrated that a clear picture is attainable about what is illegal and what is not, when it comes to certain activities and gambling on those activities. The sheriff would not feel a need to send a notice to a person operating a cock-fighting pit giving him 30 days to show why he should not be closed and put in jail. Moving the operation to another location to avoid prosecution might not work either. Disguising a bullfight as an animal exercising period might not pass muster. There has been no precedent set that would allow a county or a sovereign nation or a pari-mutuel facility to have any animals fighting to the death; betting or no betting. And no one is seriously lobbying to get these activities approved. Most of the other gambling games have no real basis for being outlawed, or they would be outlawed everywhere. Why can a person bet on a horse or play in a poker game, even play a slot machine, all in the same facility, but a roulette game is outlawed? Its just that the present system is trying to have it both ways. Florida citizens are beginning to see through the charade of current gambling laws. Terry Terril Land O Lakes Kudos for Bouncing BabiesEditor: Every Thursday at 10 a.m. my infant daughter and I join the parade of babies making its way through the doors of the Largo Public Library to attend the 15-minute Bouncing Babies storytime program. When I became a mother earlier this year, I felt a keen desire to connect with other new parents and so I began to attend as soon as I felt my baby was old enough to be out and about. However, there are many new moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers in the community who are unaware of what a wonderful (and free!) opportunity they have at their local library. Miss Cynthia leads the group in songs, stories, sign language lessons, puppet shows, and surprises. At the conclusion of each session, there is a brief period of time for the babies to play with toys and to interact with one another on clean blankets spread upon the floor. The babies eyes light up when they hear their favorite song, or when they come face to face with another little one. Parents and grandparents help the babies clap along and move their hands during songs that utilize sign language. Everyone who knows a second language is encouraged to speak it to their baby. Several parents borrow picture books from the librarys impressive selection, as reading to the babies is also encouraged. On the first day my daughter and I attended, another mom/baby pair befriended us and immediately that new mom loneliness began to dissipate. After storytime we started strolling with the babies in Largo Central Park, just across the street from the library, for some much-needed exercise, fresh air for the babies, and conversation. One day several weeks later, a first-time visitor arrived with her new baby. She and her husband had just moved to Florida from another country due to her husbands job, and she didnt know a soul. Now our three babies greet each other with smiles, coos, and they reach out to grasp at one anothers hands, and we mommies have become good friends, sharing tips, experiences, joys, and at times, a sympathetic ear. The attendees at Bouncing Babies are an incredibly diverse group. People of different races, faiths, and even countries happily chat and compare notes on childcare while their babies share toys. My husband has taken to calling it The Mini United Nations. Rather than being divided by these differences, many have been enriched and educated by the diversity. If I sound like a spokesperson for the Largo Public Library, it is only because Bouncing Babies has provided invaluable benefits to my child, our wonderful new friends, and me. Anyone in the community with a child under 18 months of age should come join us. Jennifer Pachoumis LargoIf you plan to go into the Gulf, consider arming yourself with a waterproof explosive device. Peace of mind goes a long way. I guess I have some explaining to do. A reader left a message on my voice mail last week chastising us for publishing a picture of a 417-pound bull shark caught off the Redington Long Pier. Does anybody have any common sense at that newspaper? she asked. I think its terrible to put that picture there. Its summer and we are swimming at the beach. We are trying to enjoy it. Now you see this, and everybody is going to stay out of the water. She asked us to consider what effects of running a picture of a monster bull shark will have on tourism. So I did. Since there might be more than one monster bull shark out there, I believe we have the responsibility to provide residents and tourists with some tips to prevent them from being eaten alive. Besides bull sharks, the Gulf is home to blacktip sharks, tiger sharks, great white sharks, blue sharks, hammerheads and other man-eaters. About 49 species all total, according to a website. Of course, not all of the species are man-eaters. But, I think it is safe to assume that most sharks dont like to be groped. Ive never tried feeding one, either. Bull sharks, besides being man-eaters, have a lot of ingenuity, too. Theyve been known to travel up the Mississippi River as far as Illinois. Here is more important information about sharks that we pulled from various websites: Do not enter the water if sharks are known to be present and evacuate the water if sharks are seen while youre there.Good point. Carry those instructions with you any time you go to the beach. If you see a shark, get out of the water. While there are a number of things you can do to ward off a shark attack, youre not truly safe until youre out of the water. Your goal should always be to get back to shore or back on the boat.And hope there is a strong alcoholic beverage waiting for you. Stay in groups. Sharks are more likely to pick off lone individuals.But keep a safe distance from any bleeders in the group. If you are attacked:Keep pummeling the sharks eyes and gills until you either die or the shark goes away. If you create enough trouble for the shark, hell eventually give up and find something easier to eat.At this point, you should be well on your way to deploying your waterproof explosive device. I hope that information was helpful. In addition, I would like to add the following advice: If you see schools of fish moving swiftly past you, get out of the water. Something could be chasing them. Better to be safe than shark food. Learn how to determine whether the shark is a friend or foe. And when youve mastered the skill, let me know. Guess Im a slow learner. Do not buy shark repellent products, even if they come with a money-back guarantee. DEET doesnt work, either. Do not volunteer to participate in any clinical studies involving the feeding habits of bull sharks. Learn more about the lifestyles of sharks. For instance, watch Shark Week, on the Discovery Channel, which starts July 31 at 9 p.m. I suspect there will be great footage. You cant get enough of the Great White Slam Dance. Yup, its hell to be an inhabitant of Seal Island. Any more questions? If all else fails, use common sense. Heres hoping you have a great shark-free day at the beach. Coming next week, How to Avoid Getting Struck by Lightning While Youre at the Beach, and Who to Sue if You Are.

Officials attribute the increase to seasonal employment patterns. The state Agency for Workforce Innovation released its report on Junes unemployment rates July 22. The seasonally adjusted rate for Florida remained the same 10.6 percent as compared to May; however, the not seasonally adjusted rate jumped from 10.5 percent to 11.1 percent. AWIs Chief Economist Rebecca Rust explained that unemployment figures are adjusted to remove seasonal employment patterns, which are movements in the data that happen at the same time every year. She said employment changes due to factors, such as agriculture, education and tourism. June is very seasonal, with all the counties in the state having seasonal lows causing their unemployment rates to rise, she said in an email. The seasonal declines in June are due to agriculture and education. The schools have closed for the summer and they lay off non-instructional personnel. The state report does not give seasonally adjusted rates for counties or metropolitan statistical areas, such as Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, where Junes unemployment stands at 11.1 percent, up from 10.6 percent in May. Using the not adjusted rate only, Pinellas Countys unemployment rate for June of 10.6 percent is well under the states rate of 11.3 percent and well above the national rate of 9.3 percent. The countys rate also is well below that of June 2010 when it stood at 11.5 percent. In June of 2010, Pinellas had a labor force of 443,484 and 50,905 were unemployed. In June of 2011, the labor force had shrunk to 440,762 with 46,506 unemployed. In May of 2011, the labor force was slightly smaller, 439,758 and 43,973 were unemployed. A similar scenario plays out for the local MSA where unemployment in June 2010 was 11.9 percent compared to 2011 when it was 11.1 percent. May 2011 unemployment was 10.6 percent. The labor force between 2010 and 2011 declined 5,736 and the number of unemployed went down by nearly 10,000. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSA includes Pinellas and the counties of Hernando, which has an unemployment rate of 13.8 percent, the fourth highest in the state; Hillsborough where unemployment in June stood at 11 percent, 25th among Floridas 67 counties; and Pasco with unemployment at 12 percent, which ties for 10th place with Okeechobee and Dixie counties. Pinellas County is ranked at No. 32 among the states counties. Monroe County is ranked at No. 67 with the lowest unemployment rate of 6.6 percent, followed by Walton at 6.9 percent and Liberty County at 7 percent. Hendry County ranks No. 1 with the highest unemployment of 16.2 percent, followed by Flagler with 14.6 percent and Miami-Dade with 13.9 percent. Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement July 22, regarding the AWI report. Today I learned that since January, Florida has added 85,500 new jobs, 4,300 of which were added in June. This is great news for Floridians, Scott said. I am encouraged that Florida is still bucking the national trend in unemployment. We maintained a steady unemployment rate from May to June while the national unemployment rate continued to climb. Cynthia R. Lorenzo, AWI director, agreed with Scotts statement but pointed out that many people still are unemployed in the state of Florida. While Floridas continued pattern of job growth is good news, we still have much work to do to restore our states economy to pre-recession levels, Lorenzo said. And that effort remains our highest priority.State says unemployment on the rise in Pinellas Networking groups, aka leads groups, meet on a regular basis at various locations in the area.

A stranger (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution dont welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). Its a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where hes been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponentstownsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.Crazy, Stupid, LoveGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone and Jonah Bobo Director: John Requa and Glenn Ficarra Rated: PG-13 At forty-something, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart.

Worse, in todays single world, Cal, who hasnt dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protg to handsome, thirty-something player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cals eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that cant be found at Supercuts or The Gap. Cal and Emily arent the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cals 13-yearold son, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cals makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that cant be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.The SmurfsGenre: Kids, family and animation Cast: Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara and Anton Yelchin Director: Raja Gosnell This film is not yet rated The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Animations hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs.

Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Husseins palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is thrust into the highest echelons of the royal family when hes ordered to become the fiday or body double to Saddams son, the notorious Black Prince Uday Hussein (also Dominic Cooper), a reckless, sadistic party-boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality. With his and his familys lives at stake, Latif must surrender his former self forever as he learns to walk, talk and act like Uday. But nothing could have prepared him for the horror of the Black Princes psychotic, drug-addled life of fast cars, easy women and impulsive violence. With one wrong move costing him his life, Latif forges an intimate bond with Sarrab (Ludivine Sagnier), Udays seductive mistress whos haunted by her own secrets. But as war looms with Kuwait and Udays depraved gangster regime threatens to destroy them all, Latif realizes that escape from the devils den will only come at the highest possible cost.The FutureGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Miranda July, Hamish Linklater, David Warshofsky, Isabella Acres and Joe Putterlik Director: Miranda July Rated: R The Future tells the story of a thirty-something couple who, on deciding to adopt a stray cat, change their perspective on life, literally altering the course of time and testing their faith in each other and themselves. Sophie and Jason are strange the way all couples are strange when theyre alone. They live in a small Los Angeles apartment, have jobs they hate, and in one month theyll adopt a stray cat named Paw Paw. Like a newborn baby, hell need around-the-clock care he may die in six months, or it may take five years. Despite their good intentions, Sophie and Jason are terrified of their looming loss of freedom. So with just one month left, they quit their jobs, and the Internet, to pursue their dreams Sophie wants to create a dance, Jason wants simply to be guided by fate. But as the month slips away, Sophie becomes increasingly, humiliatingly paralyzed. In a moment of desperation, she calls a stranger, Marshall a square, 50-year-old man who lives in the Valley. In his suburban world she doesnt have to be herself; as long as she stays there, shell never have to try (and fail) again. Living in two terrifyingly vacant and different realities, Sophie and Jason must reunite with time, space and their own souls in order to come home.Good NeighborsGenre: Foreign, comedy, romance and thriller Cast: Jay Baruchel, Emily Hampshire, Scott Speedman, Sean Lu and Anne-Marie Cadieux Director: Jacob Tierney Rated: R Neighbors Spencer (Scott Speedman) and Louise (Emily Hampshire) have bonded over their fascination with a recent string of murders terrorizing their community.

When a new tenant named Victor (Jay Baruchel) arrives in the building, all three quickly hit it off. But as they soon discover, each of them has their own dark secret. As the violence outside mounts, the city retreats indoors for safety. But the more time these three spend together in their apartment building, the clearer it becomes that what they once thought of as a safe haven is as dangerous as any outside terrors they could imagine. Smart dialogue, strong performances and jarring thrills give this film all the elements of a great mystery.The GuardGenre: Comedy and crime Cast: Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle Director: John Michael McDonagh Rated: R The Guard is a comedic fishout-of-water tale of murder, blackmail, drug trafficking and rural police corruption. Two policemen must join forces to take on an international drugsmuggling gang one, an unorthodox Irish policeman and the other, a straitlaced FBI agent. Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleason) is an eccentric smalltown cop with a confrontational and crass personality and a subversive sense of humor. A longtime policeman in County Galway, Boyle is a maverick with his own moral code. He has seen enough of the world to know there isnt much to it and has had plenty of time to think about it. When a fellow police officer disappears and Boyles small town becomes key to a large drug trafficking investigation, he is forced to at least feign interest when dealing with the humorless FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) assigned to the case. Left to run his territory to his liking for many years, he is not at all impressed when the FBI comes to town. Agent Everett has led an American life of privilege, complete with the highest levels of formal education. Consumed with his pursuit of justice, Everett has no interest in the district of Connemara other than as a backdrop to solve the case. He underestimates the townspeople, especially Sergeant Boyle. Everett looks down on Boyle as a low-level provincial policeman with a limited and flippant view of the world. Boyle sees Everett as a by-thebook policeman with a chip on his shoulder and no understanding of how the real world runs. Despite the fact that Boyle seems more interested in mocking and undermining Everett than in actively working to solve the case, Boyle finds that circumstances keep pulling him back into the thick of it. First, his tiresomely enthusiastic new partner disappears. Then his favorite hooker attempts to blackmail him into turning a blind eye to the case. Finally the drug-traffickers hes trying to find try to buy him off as they have every other member of the local police force. As unconventional as Boyle is, these events unwittingly offend his murky moral code. He realizes that he needs to take matters into his own hands, and that Everett is the only person he can trust. And so the scene is set for an unlikely friendship and explosive finale.

EXP. 8-4-11$799 Two indie horror films are currently appearing in limited theatrical release and in case none of the local movie houses want to gamble on screening them can be viewed any time On Demand through Bright House. First, in The Ward, veteran horror director John Carpenter returns to the genre after a decade-long absence. Unfortunately, Carpenter fails to recapture the glory of past triumphs such as Halloween and The Thing. Set in 1966, the story follows the institutionalization of a young woman with a dark and haunted past. Upon her arrival, Kristen, played by Amber Heard, almost immediately finds herself in the midst of another mystery: The ward in which she is housed appears to be haunted by a vengeful spirit. Kristen gradually meets other patients who reside in the ward, including Iris (Lyndsy Fonseca), Sarah (Danielle Panabaker), Emily (Mamie Gummer) and Zoey (Laura Leigh). All of the women are treated by the rather sinister Dr. Stringer (Jared Harris), and the ward is presided over by the subtly tyrannical Nurse Lundt (Susanna Burney). Carpenter toys with point-ofview in The Ward, trying to keep the viewer guessing about the source of the mystery. For the horror aficionado, though, the film is painfully derivative neither the cheap shock points nor the plot twists are particularly surprising. The juxtaposition of psychological thriller with supernatural terror was old hat when he started his career in the early 1970s. Theres nothing wrong with exploiting a clich as long as the end product delivers some kind of innovation but The Ward fails to do that. The film isnt a total loss. Strong performances are given by many of the actresses portraying female patients, particularly Fonseca and Leigh. Heard doesnt seem to fit the role of Kristen. She overemphasizes her characters intensity and independence, reducing the amount of sympathy the viewer can attach to her. Harris hits all the right notes with Stringer, especially because the viewer sees him through the eyes of Kristen. Hes calculatingly compassionate and faintly frightening, as though he has some spine-chilling hidden agenda. Burney as every other actress playing a similar role has done over the last few decades borrows from Louise Fletchers classic portrayal of Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. The strong performances and methodical attention to set detail in this period piece cant compensate for a feeble script and mechanical direction. Carpenter is capable of something better something scarier than The Ward.Quick factsFilm: The Ward Cast: Amber Heard, Danielle Panabaker, Mamie Gummer, Lyndsy Fonseca and Jared Harris Director: John Carpenter Release date: July 8, 2011; available On Demand and from Netflix Rated: R Runtime: 88 minutes Another period piece, The Countess, is based on a classic and perhaps true horror story. Directed by Julie Delpy, The Countess takes a fresh look at the legend surrounding Countess Elizabeth Bthory de Ecsed, a member of Hungarian nobility who history remembers as the Blood Countess. In the 1610, Bthory was accused of torturing and killing hundreds of young women. Though she was never put on trial, she was imprisoned in Csejte Castle, bricked into a room, until her death. In the ensuing centuries, the folklore that arose around Bthory included claims that she bathed in the blood of her victims to maintain her youth. Dozens of films have been made depicting Bthory alleged crimes. Ingrid Pitt played the character in Hammer Film Productions 1971 film Countess Dracula, a genre classic. Unlike its predecessors, though, The Countess demonstrates that the accusations may have been the result of court intrigue. Delpy who also portrays Bthory in the film spends the first third of the film describing the world in which this Hungarian noblewoman found herself. As a teenage girl, she is compelled to marry the Hungarian baron Franz Ndasdy with whom she has three children. She manages Ndasdys affairs while he is at war with the Ottomans and she matures into a knowledgeable, powerful and wealthy woman. She has so much wealth, in fact, that she lends the Hungarian Habsburg King Matthias II large sums of money. His debt to her forces him to recognize her as capable of maintaining her husbands estate after his untimely death.While still in mourning, Bthory falls in love with Istvn Thurz (Daniel Brhl), son of Count Gyrgy Thurz (William Hurt). Though Istvn wishes to be with her, the machinations of his father thwart him. From here, the story is recounted by Istvn and is pieced together from what he has been told and what he has been led to believe. Because she believes her lover abandoned her because of her advanced age, Bthory appears to turn to desperate measures in pursuit of beauty and everlasting youth. Delpy vividly depicts the countesss supposed descent into madness. The lush though often stark cinematography works together with authentic costumes and other realistic touches to make The Countess visually arresting. Shot in Germany, Delpy captures the feeling of isolation and solitude Bthory must have felt after the death of her husband. The Countess has a few problems. Some of the dialog comes across as overly formal as if the actors are trying to sound Shakespearian for dramas sake. The rather odd mix of accents from the international cast distracts at times. A few scenes appeared rushed to completion, particularly in the last 30 minutes, which may suggest shoddy last minute editing. Whether viewed as a gloomy period drama or an understated historical horror film, The Countess succeeds more often than it falters. With fine performances by Delpy as well as Anamaria Marinca as Bthorys potionmaker Anna Darvulia and Sebastian Blomberg as Dominic Vizakna, The Countess revisits a genre icon and reshape the mythology surrounding this historical figure.Quick factsFilm: The Countess Cast: Julie Delpy, Daniel Brhl, Vincent Gallo, William Hurt, Radha Mitchell, Anamaria Marinca and Sebastian Blomberg Director: Julie Delpy Release date: Available On Demand Rated: Unrated Runtime: 94 minutesMovie reviewCarpenters The Ward flounders; Delpys The Countess revisits historys Blood Countess Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe
