Commission OKs higher millage rate By TOM GERMOND LARGO Largo city commissioners voted 6-1 Sept. 4 to tentatively approve a budget that includes a 7.3 percent property tax increase for the next fiscal year spurred by a continued shortfall in revenue. Action taken by the commission would result in a tax rate of 4.9 mills. The current rate is 4.5 mills. City budget manager Amy Davis said the increase in the millage will generate an additional $1 million revenue and is recommended to prevent further budget reductions as well as service level reductions in future years. It will allow for some growth in property tax revenue because over the last five years there has been a cumulative taxable property value decline of 31 percent, she said. The city has either lowered or held the line of property taxes for the last five years, she said. In that time frame most of the other revenue sources have been declining, Davis said. City officials said the tentative budget for fiscal year 2013 includes $2.5 million in operating budget reductions, the equivalent of 22.23 full-time positions deleted and no funding for employee raises. Among the budget reductions are elimination of a grant administrators position, assistant to the city managers position, See MILLAGE, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . . .9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .3,5A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4,8B Health & tness . . . . . . . .10A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . . .2A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Pet connection . . . . . . . .12A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .3A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .8A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising At the box officeThe Words, starring Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Widle and Zoe Saldana. ...

It was a rare occasion that he didnt have ready answers to questions about anything related to public works or transportation in Pinellas County and beyond. Pete Yauch, director of Transportation and Stormwater, is taking a months vacation and then moving on to take a job with a consulting firm in Tampa that specializes in traffic signal operations and safety. His last day as a Pinellas County employee was Aug. 24. Yauch said he has enjoyed his time at the county. It has been a positive experience, he said by email on his last day on the job. The St. Petersburg native began his career as a county employee in 2004 and served as director of transportation until 2007. Then he moved up the ladder to the position of assistant county administrator. He was responsible for supervising public works, planning and building departments, development and review services, St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and the Economic Development Coordination Team. In the past four years, he served as director of transportation and public works and then director of stormwater and transportation when his title changed as part of a consolidation of departments that resulted in the countys new department of environment and infrastructure.

To Check The Fit AHOTz TIP By TOM GERMONDLARGO City commissioners will discuss at a work session Sept. 11 whether they want to adopt a domestic partnership registry ordinance. Commissioner Michael Smith asked that the work session be scheduled, noting that other cities in the county as well as county government have adopted such an ordinance or are considering the measure. Since he brought the issue up, Smith said he has been getting a lot of positive responses to the proposal. As of last week, the city has received about 60 identical emails from 60 individuals in support of the measure. One such email said passing a domestic partner registry will provide an enforceable access to a range of essential protections for both gay and straight partners, including hospital visitation, medical decision making and even funeral arrangements. Most of those emails, he said, were from people who lived out of the city, but we did get a good handful of them that were inside Largo and one of them happened to be a pastor. That was kind of a nice feeling, Smith said after the meeting. But like I said from the get-go, this is not a gay or straight issue. Its a human issue, and I bring aspect of a business. Clearwater passed it and we are competitive with them. With the two largest cities having adopted similar ordinances, along with Gulfport, if Largo does likewise the county may be encouraged to adopt such a measure. Smith had spoken to Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos about why the City Council adopted a domestic partnership ordinance and Smith looked at it from the aspect of it being a great opportunity for us to take on for our city. Besides the identical emails, city officials also have received a few other emails from others in support of a domestic partnership ordinance. I urge you to pass this registry without pause and in all due haste, said Matthew Faustini of Largo. While debating and considering your vote I implore you to remember that life is so fragile. That we are all, every single one of us, is vulnerable and that we will all, at some point in our journey on this planet, fall. We will all fall. This is something that we all must carry within us. That what we have here together is special. Pastor Terry McGuire said Largo has made him proud to live here and to be a part of this wonderful community. I trust you will continue to do the right thing for Largos residents by passing the Domestic Partnership Registry ensuring that no one has to be alone, especially at the hand of another. City commissioners heard from an opponent of the registry, Largo resident Jimmy Dean. At the commissions Aug. 7 meeting, Dean said federal law says that marriage should be between one man and one woman. I believe any vote for this issue is invalid, Dean said. Commissioners dont take public input at work sessions, but citizens are each allowed three minutes to discuss city matters during their regular meetings. St. Petersburgs ordinance says that a significant number of city residents establish and maintain important personal, emotional and economic relationships with persons to whom they are not married. The City Council found that a domestic partnership registry is attractive to companies that value diversity and can assist the city in its economic development. Among its provisions, St. Petersburgs ordinance says all health care facilities operating within the city shall honor the registered domestic partnership documentation as evidence of a partnership and shall allow a registered domestic partner visitation as provided under federal law.City plans meeting on domestic partnership issuesLARGO One hundred and fifty years ago, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law the land grant university system that set the stage for Extension outreach education to local communities.

Land grant universities support outreach activities through their Extension Services.

According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, deputies responded to a report of property damage about 5:21 p.m. at 106 161st Ave. in Redington Beach following reports that a full-sized 2006 Ford pickup truck, travelling swiftly, had struck a mailbox and left the scene. A deputy in the area, spotted a vehicle matching the description of the truck, and attempted a traffic stop. The suspect vehicle failed to stop and fled at a high rate of speed. According to deputies, additional reports were received in reference to other hit and run crashes in the area of Boca Ciega Drive in Madeira Beach, with a similar description to the Ford pickup. The truck was subsequently spotted by other deputies in the area of Boca Ciega Drive and Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach. Deputies said that when the suspect vehicle observed the deputies, the driver, later identified as 16-year-old Christopher Nhat Nguyen of Pinellas Park, spun the truck around and went up onto a landscaped area and into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven. The deputy approached the truck with his cruiser in an attempt to pin the door. The suspect vehicle then backed up to get away, but the truck hooked on to the bush guard of the cruiser, dragging it approximately 5 feet. Deputies said at that point Nguyen and two occupants, identified as 16 year-old Osmany Aleman of Pinellas Park and 15-year-old Rithysand Marvin Phoeuk of St. Petersburg, bailed from the car. All three were apprehended shortly thereafter. Deputies said Aleman was located swimming in the canal behind the 7-Eleven. Deputies determined the Ford pickup truck had been reported stolen out of Pinellas Park and that property was also recovered in the vehicle that did not belong to the vehicle owner. They also said that earlier, a deputy had observed Aleman driving the pick-up truck. Nguyen was arrested and charged with auto theft, driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license, hit and run, obstruction and violation of probation. Aleman was charged with auto theft, driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license, obstruction and violation of probation. Phoeuk was charged with obstruction and violation of probation. All three were taken to a local hospital for medical clearance and subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Juvenile Assessment Center. The investigation continues. Police beat Police beat
4A Leader, September 6, 2012 TRAFFIC CHIEF, from page 1Agreat transportation projects that have been implemented in Pinellas over the past decade, including the Belleair Beach Causeway, the extension of Belcher Road up to Klosterman Road and two projects nearing completion, Keystone Road and Bryan Dairy Road. In addition, our Intelligent Transportation System has significantly improved travel along the corridors where it has been implemented and that implementation will continue along additional roads in the future, he said. Yauch is an expert in traffic and traffic management. Before taking a job at the county, he was practice leader for traffic engineering and intelligent transportation system for a company in Tampa. Prior to that, he was regional vice president for a company that held the consulting contract for the countywide traffic signal system head replacement and wide area network project in Pinellas. He served as city traffic engineer and assistant director of public works for the city of Clearwater from 1991 to 1994 and assistant district traffic operations engineer and district signal systems engineer for the Florida Department of Transportation from 1988 to 1991. He was president and principal engineer at Gray-Yauch and Associates in Atlanta, Ga., from 1985 to 1988. He worked for an Atlanta firm as traffic engineer and senior traffic engineer from 1977 to 1985. His earliest experience came as a graduate research assistant at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta from 1976 to 1977. He received his bachelors in civil engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1976 and his masters degree in 1977. Hes a fellow and member of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and past president of the Florida Section. He also is a member of the Florida Engineering Society and International Municipal Signal Association.One hundred years of improvementsTampa Bay Newspapers has been publishing a series of articles to mark the countys centennial and asked Yauch to share his knowledge of events before he moved on to a job in the private sector. There have definitely been a lot of transportation changes and improvements over the last 100 years, he said. When the county was formed (in 1912), railroads and waterways were the main transportation modes into St. Petersburg, he said. Yauch highlighted some of the transportation milestones, including the Orange Belt Railroad that ran to St. Petersburg in 1888 and later became the Atlantic Coast Line. The Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad started operations in St. Petersburg in 1914 and later became the Seaboard Railway. Now, a lot of the tracks have been converted into trails and there are only two freight trains a day that travel through the county, Yauch said. St. Petersburg had streetcars from 1903 to 1949. Now, were looking at building a modern-day equivalent light rail, he said. The first commercial air service in the country started in St. Petersburg in 1914 with regular flights to Tampa. The first Gandy Bridge opened in 1924, and the Courtney Campbell Causeway was opened in 1934. A ferryboat ran from Pinellas Point to Manatee County from 1926 until the first Skyway Bridge opened in 1954. It was the Skyway that really started the growth of Pinellas County, Yauch said.Looking aheadYauch said there is a lot more that needs to be done in Pinellas County. Some of the major projects under way include Florida Department of Transportation projects on U.S. 19, Curlew Road to Park Boulevard; 118th Avenue Freeway, future State Road 690; Roosevelt Boulevard realignment and the Bayway Bridge replacements, as well as county road projects on Keystone Road, U.S. 19 to East Lake; and Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey to 72nd Avenue. Dunedin Causeway will need to be replaced in the next decade, Yauch said. We have a lot of infrastructure that was constructed during the rapid growth of the 1960s and 1970s that is getting old and will need replacement. We continue to have traffic safety concerns with about 15,000 injuries and 100 fatalities every year in the county. And although we have had a recent downturn in traffic volumes due to the economy, we will still need to address recurring congestion problems in the future. Ongoing transit initiatives could help. Time will tell. HISTORY, from page 1Acoleslaw, baked beans, chips and dessert. Soda and bottled water will be available for $1. Advance tickets will be available at the Fishing Centers front desk Sept. 10-14. Other activities are planned hourly throughout the event, according to Jessica Espaillat, Center of Fishing event and marketing coordinator. Activities include an archery booth, interactive fishing games, cast netting games, art activities and movies. The Rays Street Team will be on hand Saturday offering pitching and batting games. Tours of the 30-acre Florida Botanical Gardens and 21acre Heritage Village along with other special activities also will be available. Heritage Village will celebrate the lifestyle of the countys early pioneers with childrens activities, blacksmithing, antique cars, fiber arts demonstrations and house tours. There also will be food vendors and exhibits by area historical societies and book sales and signings by local authors. Activities are planned on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The celebration ends Monday night at Tropicana Field as the Tampa Bay Rays take on the Boston Red Sox, starting at 7:10 p.m. Sponsors for the celebration are Baycare Health Systems, Progress Energy, Raymond James, Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Bay Rays, TradeWinds Island Resorts and Visit St. Pete Clearwater. Espaillat said the Florida Gulf Coast Center for Fishing had asked to sponsor the countys centennial celebration. She said budget problems had prevented the county from being able to fund an event, so we asked if we could host it. This is great for us, she said. People can come and see who we are and what we do. The Fishing Center, which moved into the former Gulf Coast Museum of Art building in May, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching children after life through fishing, to providing a center for activity for the local marine community and to commemorating the past, present and future of fishing on Floridas Gulf Coast. The center is part of the countys new history, having opened in January of the centennial year. Fishing has been a huge part of the countys history, Espaillat said. We think it fits (to host the celebration). It makes sense. For more information, visit centerforfishing.org/pinellas-countycentennial-celebration or stop by the Center for Fishing at 12211 Walsingham Road, Largo. The Center is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Earlier this summer, an NBA transaction occurred that most people hardly noticed. But to a group in Clearwater, this was both groundbreaking and amazing. The group is the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization and the transaction involved one of their own. At 6 feet 3 inches, Tyshawn Taylor was drafted by the Portland Trailblazers and traded to the Brooklyn Nets. Tyshawn was a little brother in Clearwater, and he is the first one to thank Big Brothers Big Sisters for making it possible to fulfill his dream. In 1999, when Taylor, then 9 years old, became a little brother. He was soon linked up with 49-year-old Tom Spencer, who had retired after selling his computer company. Suddenly I realized I could do what I wanted, Spencer said. It provided me with a spiritual awakening, and I realized I had to do something to give back. Spencer, then of Safety Harbor, sought out the Big Brothers Big Sisters, became a Big, and soon met Taylor. I discovered he really needed a role model, Spencer said. He was being raised by a single mother with his two sisters. They lived in the projects and there were some rough kids around. He had told me he liked basketball and in fact told me, when he was 9 years old, that he wanted to play in the NBA. I told him to hold onto the dream, but I knew he faced long odds. For Taylor, contacted at the Nets training facility in Brooklyn, the experience of meeting Spencer was memorable. I think we had a connection right from the very beginning, Taylor said. But it was different, me a little African-American kid with this older white man. Yet it seemed natural, I was comfortable with him. We went out to eat a couple of times. My mom connected with him because he was so open, so she gave me the OK and after that we hit it out of the park. Knowing that Taylor was struggling with his studies and how much he loved basketball allowed Spencer to form a plan. We were able to use basketball as a motivation for him to get good grades, Spencer said. He went from barely passing to the honor role. Getting Taylor enrolled in youth basketball wasnt easy, Spencer recalls. I took him to the Clearwater For Youth Basketball League, but the lady there said it was too late, Spencer said. But I insisted. I said we really have to get this kid into basketball. So they actually formed another team with other kids who were late. They were the worst team in the league. He was the best player on the worst team. I dont think they won a game, but he had a ball. Taylors career took off after that. Other coaches in his youth league noticed him, and after that first year, he had no more trouble hooking up with a team. Eventually Tyshawn played varsity for one year with Countryside High School before moving to New Jersey to live with relatives. Taylor went on to attend the University of Kansas and played basketball as a starter there for four years. He got his bachelors degree in communications. His basketball flourished. In 2010, he won the Big 12 Freshman of the Year Award. When he graduated, guess who just had to attend? Tom Spencer and his wife, JoAnn. My proudest day was May 13 of this year when Tyshawn graduated from the University of Kansas, Spencer said. Taylor, a guard, is listed on the roster of the Brooklyn Nets. Up until this year, they had been the New Jersey Nets. In July, he signed a contract reportedly worth just under $500,000 a year, normal for a rookie. It now gives me a chance to give back to my mom and my family, Taylor said. The giving doesnt stop there. Tom and JoAnn Spencer moved to Murphy, N.C., a few years ago, and Tom has since started a chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters in that community. Already, 31 kids have signed up. Taylor intends on giving back too. At some time I want to be a Big Brother to give back to the younger kids, Taylor said. I suggest everybody be a big part of this. The journey of Tyshawn Taylor, from the projects in Clearwater to the bright lights of New York City and a spot in the NBA was a long one. But it would never have been possible without the connection between a Big Brother and a Little Brother. Im happy with the satisfaction of seeing him grow and ending up with control over his life rather than follow the path of his parents and cousins, Spencer said. Taylor returned the love. It was life changing, Taylor said. My Big Brother was the first one to see my passion. Ill always be grateful to him for taking time out of his life and care for me. He didnt have to do it.Clearwater little brother makes it big Photo courtesy of the BROOKLYN NETSTyshawn Taylor in action during the NBAs summer league this year.Dunedin gives OK for Gateway projectDUNEDIN The Dunedin City Commission on Aug. 23 voted 4-1 to approve the repositioning of the Gateway Redevelopment Project. Commissioner Julie Scales dissented. In the fall of 2006, the commission chose Pizzuti Builders LLC to develop the Gateway area, including property at Main Street and Skinner Boulevard, as a redevelopment project featuring retail, restaurants and medical office space. However, the economy soon turned sour, and over the last few years Pizzuti has tried to move in this direction but has faced major impediments due to the real estate market, economy and uncertainty in the health care field, according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. So far, the owner of Pizzuti has invested $1.3 million in the planned development of the Gateway site. The company has reassessed and brought before the commission a revised plan for the site, which features 138 upscale multi-family units on the Gateway and Jernigan tracts, as well as two restaurants and retail on the first floor. The citys own Economic Development Strategy Plan references the need for newer apartment rentals as a measure to attract working professionals, the memo said. Presently, Dunedins multi-family rental stock can be characterized as older, and not as attractive as newer products in surrounding areas such as Tampa, Clearwater, Palm Harbor and St. Petersburg. The project would target households as an urban living experience that would feature shopping, dining, entertainment and PSTA and Jolley Trolley transportation all within walking distance. The market segment Pizzuti is planning to attract is earlyto mid-singles, couples and married people from age 25 to 39 with a household income of $40,000 to $100,000. The apartments could also be used for 55-and-older people who want to downscale their housing, either on a full-time or seasonal basis. I think its wonderful, said Commissioner Julie Ward Bujalski. Interestingly enough, the location of it, our trolley stops right there which would be perfect. And you have a regular bus stop. You do have literally the whole transit system right there. So hopefully we can encourage the residents there to use them. Commissioner Ron Barnette said he feels this project symbolizes the gateway area, captures the pedestrian feel and sets the feel and ambiance going into Dunedin and downtown. He added that this project could also serve as a model for development in other parts of town as well. Bob Ironsmith, economic development director for the city, said the goal is to not build so much that it takes away from downtown, but to add just the right balance and enticement. Mayor Dave Eggers said that he understands that the economy made it difficult to do the original plan and that it is necessary to be flexible and move with the times. If this fits in our city, and I think it does, then I am happy, Eggers said. Commissioner Julie Scales was not as convinced. She said this is a signature project at the entry to downtown, and she said she does not feel compelled to do something immediately just because it is now easiest to get funding for multi-family housing. However, the other four commissioners liked the project and voted to approve it. Ironsmith said that forward movement on the project will now be dictated by various approvals, but other than that, it is ready to go. He said building could commence by early 2013 if not the end of 2012. Alexandra LundahlIRB to pursue claim for oil spillINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Indian Rocks Beach commissioners have decided to see if they might have a claim against the BP oil company because of the oil spill in the Gulf in 2010. The commission gave City Attorney Maura Kiefer the authority to negotiate a contract with the law firm Motley Rice of Charleston, S.C. Kiefer is to have a contract ready for approval at the Commissions meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The issue of choosing a law firm to represent the city arose two weeks ago when Tampa lawyer Christa Collins approached the commission on behalf of Penton law firm of Louisiana and suggested the city might have claims against BP for lost revenue because of the spill. At that time Vice Mayor Terry Hamilton-Wollin suggested the commission hear from local lawyer Rick Kriseman on behalf of the Motley Rice firm as well. At the commission meeting on Aug. 28 commissioners heard the Motley Rice presentation and despite the recommendation by City Attorney Kiefer that they go with the Penton group, commissioners unanimously agreed to engage Motley Rice if a favorable contract could be worked out. Hamilton-Wollin said the difference for her was that attorney Kriseman was local. He has an office just a couple of miles away, she said. And he has staff on the ground to work with. For me this is a no-brainer. Other commissioners agreed with Hamilton-Wollin, but Mayor R.B. Johnson threw in a note of caution. Im concerned with their contract because if we pulled out of an arrangement with them then we would have to pay, he said. Im also concerned about possibly having to pay some expenses. I cant go with this text. In the end a resolution was fashioned to authorize Kiefer to negotiate a new contract. The issue of making a claim against BP came up some time ago but was squelched when City Manager Chuck Coward suggested the city really did not suffer any losses because of the spill. Resident Kelly Cisarik, who said she was against proceeding with any lawsuit, voiced that feeling. I didnt see any oil on our beaches, she said. Damage was minimal and indirect. It is fundamentally wrong to do this. Brian Goff Budget for bridge bait house, bathrooms cut nearly in halfBELLEAIR BLUFFS An initial plan by the county to spend $1.4 million for a bait shop and restrooms on the Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge has since been cut back to $750,000. Belleair Bluffs Public Works Director Robert David announced at the Aug. 20 City Commission meeting that a number of construction compromises will need to be made to meet the new spending figure. Fishermen, boaters and bridge visitors have been asking for a bait house, which would also have light food and snacks available, since the old one was torn down when construction began on the new bridge in 2007. A plan for a mobile bait shop, to serve until funding was available for a permanent structure, was turned down by the city in January of 2011 as not meeting code requirements in a coastal hazard zone. Portable toilets have provided the only bathroom facilities on the bridge. David was reporting on a recent meeting with county officials he and City Clerk Debra Sullivan attended along with Public Works Commissioner Suzy Sofer. He said compromises on the roof, elevator and elimination of a kitchen for the bait house were discussed at the session. There was talk of providing a lift for the handicapped instead of an elevator and temporary bathrooms that would be joined together to look permanent, David said. The restrooms would be attractive-looking stucco, he said, and Sofer described them as a huge step up from the Portalets. The commission agreed to tell the county to move ahead with the bathrooms separately. There are also bathroom facilities planned for inside the bait house. Plans for the scaled-down project will have to be redrawn and approved by the commission, David indicated. More details will be made available at next months commission workshop meeting. Commissioner Jack Nazario urged residents to come to that session and give their opinions on the plans. He mentioned especially those whose condos on the Intracoastal would overlook the bait shop. David was asked if the $1.4 million figure, which was reduced, represented todays construction costs, which would presumably be lower than when the original figure was first announced. The number is todays cost with construction as it is today, he said. Mayor Chris Arbutine said plans for the scaled-back bait house and restrooms should be looked at favorably as it is better to get something rather than nothing. The bathrooms are a necessity to replace those Porta Potties, and the bait house is a necessity for the community, Arbutine said. Wayne Ayers Around Pinellas Around Pinellas MILLAGE, from page 1Aneighborhood coordinators position and three firefighters positions. Commissioners rejected a plan to eliminate the economic development directors position. Commissioner Harriet Crozier asked what was the citys Finance Advisory Boards position on the millage increase. Davis said the board supports it. Commissioner Curtis Holmes, who voted against the proposed tax rate and budget, said he found it interesting that the city is spending more money on the Highland Aquatic Center than the Southwest Pool, even though the Highland center is open from May through September and Southwest is open year-round. City Receation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne said aquatics teams contribute to a lot of the costs at Southwest Pool, such as the West Florida Lightning Aquatics paying for the utility bill that heats and cools the pool year-round. That amount is about $40,000. She also said that Highland Aquatic Center incurs some costs year-round, such as maintaining equipment and chemicals. Commissioners commended staff for their work on the proposed budget for another tough fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. Only a few residents spoke at the public hearings. Geoff Moakley, who is a sharp critic of city spending, complained about increased vacation benefits. How many Largo citizens receive three weeks vacation at five year service? he asked. Private industry cant afford these huge accesses, he said. Kathy Feaster spoke in support of the budget. She said every year we seem to be going down the same path of clawing and fighting our way to get you to understand the importance of recreation and the arts. This department is not just for leisure. Its an economic development tool that does provide funds to the city, she said. The second and final hearings on the budget are set for Thursday, Sept. 20, at City Hall.

Weight Loss My Way. A true story by the owner of CLEARWATER HERBS.90612 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Americans with Disabilities Act requires gas stations, including those with self-service, to provide equal access for their customers with disabilities. Honking, signaling by flashing lights and waving are among the established methods disabled people can use to get help at gas stations throughout the United States. But in Pinellas, they also can call a specified phone number and, unless only one person is on duty, an employee must come out and provide assistance at the pump. Pinellas County Commissioners approved an amendment to a section of an ordinance relating to refueling assistance for persons with disabilities Aug. 21. The matter first came to the commission on July 24, but due to concerns voiced by Ben Fitter, advocacy director for Florida Gulf Coast Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Rev. Robert Swick of the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance and resident Angel Watson, commissioners tabled the matter. The group was concerned about requirements for signage where it would be placed, as well as making sure that everyone would continue to have equal access even those without a phone. The group met with Paul Valenti, director of Pinellas County Office of Human Rights; Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services; and Michelle Wallace, senior assistant county attorney, to find common ground. Staff presented a newly worded ordinance to the commission Aug. 21, which Valenti said addressed the concerns of all parties. However, the group still disagreed, especially with the proposed wording on the sign that said honk, signal or call for assistance. Ritter and Swick said the language was offensive and wanted to remove honk and signal. They also said it was annoying when people honked for assistance as it disturbs other customers. Watson insisted that all methods be on the signs to make it clear that a person didnt have to call to get help. Prior agreement on placement on the sign also seemed to go south after requests from at least one gas station operator that rules be less stringent and suggested that signs also could be placed on the columns near the pumps instead of the pumps themselves. After much debate, the commission approved a combination of staffs recommendations and revisions from the audience. The required signs, with phone numbers to call, also will include information on where to report instances of noncompliance with the new rules. Gas retailers can be found in violation of the countys ordinance if they do not prominently display a sign, decal or sticker with required information. They also will be in violation if the phone number on the sign is not operational or answered by an employee during regular hours of business. Failure to assist any driver of a motor vehicle properly displaying an exemption parking permit or vehicle license designating the driver as disabled, unless there is only one employee on duty at the time the assistance is requested, also is in violation of the law.Disabled residents can call to get help at gas stations Photo by TOM GERMONDBeach lovers take it easy Aug. 25 at Honeymoon Island, which welcomed more visitors than any other state park in Florida for the sixth year in a row with 1.08 mllion visitors.Just beachy
Although Isaac wasnt all that bad, we are still in the aftermath stages of a major storm as far as fishing is concerned. Huge swells and a stout south wind really muddied the nearshore waters; all that dirty water has been making its way inside the passes on the incoming tide. The key to success this past week was to get away from all that dirty water and to capitalize on the extra water brought in by the south wind. Redfish numbers are increasing after each big moon phase. More and more reds can be targeted on the shallow grass flats throughout the county. Last weeks mid-morning incoming tides had the schools of redfish hanging near mangrove shoreline points as they awaited the flood stage of the tide that will allow them to push way back into the mangrove root system, where they could feed as well as cool off. Approach each point with ease and caution. Redfish will often give you some sort of sign; usually it will be a flash or a noticeable push of water. Work the schools with gold spoons and soft plastic jigs on an 8-ounce head. Good places to target would be the no-motor-zone flats north of the Memorial Causeway and the adjacent spoil islands on the lower tidal stages. Late summer offers us the opportunity to target fish that can often be larger than the angler pursuing them. Big sharks and tarpon are a big part of what Florida fishing is all about, whether youre fishing day or night these bruisers can often be found roaming the same waters. Deep backwater holes along the Intracoastal Waterway as well as many spots inside of Tampa Bay are holding some nice tarpon and plenty of bull sharks. Large cut baits such as mullet or mackerel fished on the bottom will attract both species. Look for the tarpon to be rolling whenever the wind goes slack; dont chase the fish around too much, just set out baits where youve seen a couple of fish roll and wait for the bite.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

INSTALLED FREE! 053112 090612 In the current recession, many Floridians have found their homes dramatically underwater, i.e., worth less than the amount owed on the mortgages. In the past, Florida homeowners who wanted to eliminate second mortgages and keep their homes had to commit to complicated and costly five-year Chapter 13 debt repayment plans which allow homeowners to strip off their second mortgages. Recently, however, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in McNeal v. GMAC Mortg., LLC (In re McNeal) that the same relief is available to homeowners in Chapter 7 straight bankruptcy cases, which typically last less than four months and requires no repayment of debt. In order to strip off a second mortgage, in both Chapter 7 and 13 cases, the homeowner must prove to the Bankruptcy Court that the value of the home is less than the balance owing on the first mortgage. Once the homeowners paperwork is approved by the Court the second mortgage will be eliminated upon the entry of the homeowners bankruptcy discharge and the homeowner keeps the home and pays only the first mortgage! The Law Offices of Jill McDonald represents area homeowners filing for bankruptcy in second mortgage lien strip proceedings. We want to help you navigate through the often confusing and frustrating options available to you. The initial consultation Attorney Jill McDonald will carefully listen to you and ask questions regarding your assets, debts, income and expenses. Filing bankruptcy is an important decision, Jill said. We know that you will have lots of questions and concerns. Jill will explain the different types of bankruptcy, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. She will make a recommendation as to whether bankruptcy would be appropriate for your circumstances, and if so, which type of bankruptcy would be fitting: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy allows individuals and families who are experiencing financial difficulties to wipe out their debts and start over. Most credit card debt, lines of credit, bank loans, medical bills, and past due accounts are discharged in Chapter 7Bankruptcy. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy provides for reorganization or consolidation of debt through reduced affordable payments budgeted to income and living expenses. A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can also immediately stop foreclosure proceedings and allow up to 60 months in which to catch up your delinquenthome and auto payments. The goal of our office is to give you the information you need to make an informed decision, Jill said. Costs are always discussed up-front. You will find that our office is an excellent value and always keeps your budget in mind. Removing the burden As soon as you retain our office to file your bankruptcy case, we take the burden of calls from aggressive creditors off of you and your family, Jill said. When a creditor contacts you, you simply give them our office name and number. Once paperwork has been filed with the bankruptcy court, the court will notify all of your creditors. They will be legally prohibited from taking any action to enforce payment of your debts in other words, creditors are not allowed to phone or write you, file a lawsuit, or continue with lawsuits that they have already filed. If creditors need to reach you, they will instead contact our office, Jill said. This gives you time to take care of your family while you get a fresh start.Getting a fresh start Clients can expect personal attention, respect and convenience when visiting the law offices of Jill McDonald. She meets with clients at two Pinellas locations, including a Clearwater office in the Executive Center, 25400 U.S. 19 N., Suite 252, Clearwater; and a St. Petersburg office, at 3851 62nd Ave. N., Suite J, Pinellas Park.

For the people against it for religious reasons maybe we should consider that God helps those who help themselves, I agree with OHaras views and feel like the public should be allowed the choice of voting on euthanasia. If they want it or not state by state. Joan Carlton St. PetersburgRedington Beach did a good thingEditor: I applaud the Redington Beach mayor and commissioners for recognizing at their Aug. 21 town meeting that pedestrian crosswalks have not created the safe haven for pedestrians as intended. I applaud them for acknowledging accidents have gone up, versus down. I applaud them for setting into action to remove isolated crosswalks. It is my hope that adjoining beach communities will focus on how to decrease instead of increase accidents associated or caused by isolated, unwarranted crosswalks. John Messmore North Redington BeachA sound redevelopment strategy for the BiltmoreEditor: My name is Bill Eckenrode and since 2005 my wife and I have been spending six months each year at our condominium located at 6 Belleview Blvd. My business career now spans 55 years, mostly in financial responsibilities. Among other positions, I have been chief financial officer for two industrial corporations, have spent 25 years on the board of a real estate investment company and for the past 12 years have served as an adviser to an investment fund. Because of my background I was asked to review the market and financial analysis compiled by PKF Consulting and to opine on the validity of the redevelopment strategy outlined in the report. Although the real estate investment company I served as board member did acquire three hotels, I do not consider myself to be an expert in hotel investment or management. Therefore, I checked the capabilities of PKF Consulting to see if I could rely on their real estate data, assumptions and recommendations. I determined that they are recognized as a leader in their field, maintaining valuable hotel industry data bases. They are international in scope and have been analyzing the hotel industry for many years. Then I reviewed PKFs assumptions and projections of the economic climate in which the Belleview Biltmore would have to operate. Generally I found these economic assumptions to be reasonable, tending to conservative, tempered by the recent years of slow economic growth. After reviewing the underlying assumptions, I studied in depth Section VII: Estimated Utilization and Financial Analysis. My key impressions are: 1.) The development of the projected Belleview Biltmore Revenues utilized a number of logical calculations, incorporating both economic and Florida hotel data, arriving at understandable numbers. 2.) The estimates of financial performance are based upon the actual 2011 financial performance of five comparably sized and operated fullservice Florida based resorts, which adds credibility to the projections. 3.) The analysis assumes that the Belleview Biltmore will not achieve its stabilized occupancy rate until the third year of operation, which seems realistic. 4.) Recognizing that Belleview Biltmore golf and beach amenities are not adjacent to the hotel, the Analysis lowered its market penetration percentage, thus lowering the occupancy rate used. Because of this and the hotels location, the Analysis used a lower Average Daily Rate, more similar to The Renaissance Vinoy and the Loews Don CeSar room rates, which is more reasonable. In my opinion, the PFK Market and Financial Analysis is a professional and well developed projection of the financial results a restored Belleview Biltmore Hotel can be expected to produce, providing the sound redevelopment strategy set forth in the report is followed. Bill Eckendrode BelleairHave city commissioners forgotten their word?Editor: The Beach Bee headlines this week in bold print announces that IRB to Pursue Claim for oil spill. Surprising isnt it, City Manager Chuck Coward had said previously the city did not really suffer any losses because of the spill. The city also is pursuing this claim with a law firm located outside of this state. What has happened to integrity in this matter? Have the city commissioners forgotten this word, or conveniently pushed it aside, in their headlong rush to acquire new undeserved monetary riches. We talk of loss of values in todays world. My view holds that the appearance of the loss of integrity in this matter, besmirches this commissions reputation. Kelly Cisarik has the right idea when she states she was against proceeding with any lawsuit. I hope the city changes its mind. It is better to lead and be right, than fight for a place at the monetary troth, with little or no right to be there, other than share the greed. Victor Wood Indian Rocks BeachOnly the lawyers profitEditor: The IRB City Commission has fallen for one of the most blatant travesties of the American justice system, the class action suit. If the city was honestly affected, why now, two years later? Its only because the judges have allowed the lawyers to file these claims without any burden of proof just based on being located on the Gulf of Mexico. This is just a money grab and the IRB City Councils participation is both immoral and unconscionable. The only people who profit from these suits are the lawyers. The rest of us will suffer forever from higher prices at the pump as the oil companies just pass their additional costs on the consumers. If you dont believe that, look at the tobacco industry. Shame on every member of the IRB City Council for this decision. John Thayer Indian Rocks BeachAgainst light railEditor: It is true that Jeff Brandes was a strong candidate for Florida state senator, and he ran a strong campaign, but his opponent, Jim, is a career politician and was backed by most of the Republican establishment. Therefore, I feel that Frishes pro-light rail stance was a major factor in his defeat. Brandes, who is against light rail in Pinellas County, which would consist of a rail line from downtown St Petersburg to Clearwater, about 25 miles, and would cost taxpayers an undetermined amount of money. Also, Brandes had the support of our local Tea Party group headed by Barbara Haselden. Our group is strongly opposed to wasting taxpayers money on any project and especially a pie-in-the-sky endeavor like light rail in Pinellas County, with little or no chance of success. For our residents not familiar with the light rail issue in Pinellas County, just ask yourself this question: If you are a resident of St. Petersburg; would I take a train from downtown St. Petersburg to Clearwater?, or, if you are a resident of Clearwater, would I take a train from Clearwater to downtown St. Petersburg? If you answered no, then you certainly would want to vote no on a referendum to add an additional 1 percent sales tax next year in Pinellas County, which will be used to fund a light rail project in Pinellas County. Incidentally, this 1 percent sales tax increase would make Pinellas County the highest in sales tax in the state of Florida and this would certainly not be good for business. Personally, I feel that the residents of Pinellas County will do exactly what the residents of Hillsborough County did, and vote against any referendum to increase our sales tax and approve light rail.

Charles Graham Pinellas Park When do we cry, and why?Babies and small children cry. Youve probably noticed. They do this because they dont know what else to do. Crying will usually get them attention, either a comforting hug, a cookie or a command to shut up so we can watch Two and a Half Men. As they grow, children are taught that its okay for girls to weep, but not okay for boys. Boys learn to cuss and say dirty words when theyre upset. They learn this from watching their fathers strike their thumbs with a hammer. As boys grow into manhood, they learn the exceptions to the rule, Thou shalt not cry. One exception is the American flag. When Old Glory waves in the breeze, its okay for a grown man to shed two tears one from each eye. Its especially all right if were watching a Western movie in which John Wayne and his cavalry, with all flags flying, ride in to massacre a band of Apaches who strayed from the reservation. Modern TV news coverage relies on the presence or absence of tears as an indicator of whats going on. If tears are shed at a funeral, then It was an emotional scene. But what if the cameraman can find no tears? The news director simply says, Skip the funeral and show the piece where the teenage kids are told their mother has just been run down by a drunken driver. Give me some sobbing, guys! In his novel Oliver Twist, heres what Charles Dickens said about crying: It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper. So cry away. Lets remember that. Through the ages, women have used tears as a means of achieving their goals. In a disagreement with a man, weeping has always been a womans formidable fallback position. The average man (and most of us fit that description) would rather choose root canal work than face a weeping woman. Even when we know were on the side of justice and the gods, we will finally say, OK, OK, well do it your way. Its all my fault. Just stop crying, please! If were lucky, the woman may then agree to have makeup sex with us. Sure she will. Experts dont have many final answers about why people cry. Obviously, its a means of expressing emotion, whether of grief, sadness, joy or just because the people around you are weeping and you dont want to seem like an odd duck. A major mystery is why some folks cry and others dont. One reason is cultural. If you grow up among weepers, you may become one, the same way you became Republican or Democrat or Lutheran. As a youth, I seldom wept without having a major reason (and today I cant even recall what some of those reasons were.) Now that I am old I tend to shed tears with absolutely no provocation. And I hate it, or much of it. I have long become sniffly at majestic music, such as Beethovens Ninth and Seventh or some of the lyrics of Kris Kristofferson. But now I may choke up when I hear a band playing the Ohio State fight song, or when I think of the final five minutes of the movies Heaven Can Wait or Pretty Woman. I feel like a fool, and try to recover by pretending my face is a block of ice. The sight of an accomplished figure skater, whirling and spinning eight times in the air, has always broken me up, as I think of the years of effort and sacrifice the skater has given. In the 1980s at the Los Angeles Olympics a female marathon runner collapsed while only a few hundred yards from the finish line. Instead of calling it quits, she crawled, dragging her pain-racked body inch by inch to the end of the race. My memory of that scene still can move me to tears. I am a worshipper at the altar of grit and determination, probably because I possess so little of those qualities myself. Today, for me, the most potent automatic producer of salty tears is a TV commercial by an animal-protection group. The ad shows a collection of battered, abused dogs and cats, looking out from their cages, hoping that someone anyone will rescue them from the euthanasia that surely awaits if we, the viewers, dont immediately come to the shelter and sign the adoption papers. Its an effective ad, but I hate it. It triggers my homicidal instincts, making me want to seek out and dismember the wretches who harmed the animals. And Id probably cry like a baby as I performed the executions.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him your comments at email@example.com. Drivers SeatBob Driver What a 14-year-old can teach usWhen Florida students headed back to the classroom this month, 14-year-old Willow Tufano of North Port was not among them. Willow, you see, has more important things to do like collecting rent from the tenants who live in the house she bought recently with earnings from her small business. If you need to re-read that last sentence, go ahead. Because it isnt every day that a 14year-old buys a house. And Willows remarkable story not only should give hope to everyone worried about the future of the American dream, but it also should help us rediscover a time-honored American ideal that can help get our nation out of its current economic mess. Two years ago, Willows mother was helping process a foreclosure along Floridas Gulf Coast. When Willow learned that the man in charge of the property planned to dispose of the household belongings left behind, she asked if she could have them instead. He agreed. Soon Willow began posting notices on Craigs List, selling these and other items she found at yard sales and by dumpster diving. Willow quickly learned the used-goods market. Baby items, bunk beds, video games, and electronics sell well, she says. Appliances like dishwashers and old TVs dont. Willow saved her earnings, amassing $6,000 over 18 months. Then, one day, she overheard her mother talking about a home once valued at $100,000 that was on the short sale market for $16,000. Willow said shed like to buy the home. And buy it she did for $12,000 (half with her savings, half with funds borrowed from her mother.) Once Willow pays back her mom using the $700 in rent she collects every month from tenants nearly twice her age she hopes to buy another house. I calculated that I can make more doing this than I can in a typical teenage job, she says, innocently. In case youre wondering, Willow is not being deprived of a formal education. Shes taking a full slate of advanced courses through the Florida Virtual School (FLVS). And she plans to go to college some day. She says taking classes online gives her the flexibility she needs to run her business. On trash days, being able to go out and get the good stuff that people leave on the street is really important. If it werent for FLVS, Id never be able to do this. That Willow has educational options is a testament to the enduring influence of economist Milton Friedman, Americas original school choice champion, whose centennial birth was commemorated at more than 100 events all over the world last month. Indeed, Willows propensity to see business opportunities where others see none is just what one might expect from a student whos been conditioned to see schooling options beyond the conventional. But Willows story is about more than the benefits of educational freedom. Its also about the benefits of economic freedom and the rediscovery of a time-honored idea that Benjamin Franklin once championed. If Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and Madison crafted the Constitution, then Benjamin Franklin, it might truly be said, invented the American Dream, writes social historian Barbara Dafoe Whitehead. Franklin encouraged Americans to be industrious and frugal to practice thrift, which, interestingly, comes from the same root as thriving. And Franklin did this not just to facilitate upward mobility, but because he knew that economic dependency and chronic debt hinders ones liberty. Sadly, Americas thrift ethic has declined in recent years. Whitehead reports that the term thrift is rarely associated with industriousness anymore. And frugality, which comes from the same root as fruitfulness, remains a foreign word to many in our day, especially government officials in Washington. Thankfully, the John Templeton Foundation is seeking to reverse these trends. In recent years, Templeton-funded projects in Pennsylvania and Florida have successfully revived Thrift Week celebrations tied to Benjamin Franklins Jan. 17 birthday. As part of this effort, a supplemental thrift curriculum, All About the Benjamins, reached more than 135,000 Florida students earlier this year. Had Willow Tufano been in the classroom instead of out buying her first home she might have encountered this curriculum. But judging from this spunky teenagers remarkable story, its safe to say Willow already knows something about the value of hard work and saving for the future. The rest of us should follow this little entrepreneurs example.

By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH For nearly 30 years the man they call Junior has been a fixture in and around the bar at Crabby Bills restaurant in Indian Rocks Beach for as long as most people can remember. Junior is actually 46-year-old Gerald Fancher. But nobody knows me by that name, he said. Im just Junior. He epitomizes the good things that happen when an employee in the service industry stays around for a while. I was born in Waterloo, New York, just outside Syracuse, he said. As soon as I was 18 I headed to Florida and a friend who was already here told me about a job at Crabby Bills. I applied and Ive been here ever since. It will be 29 years in February. Many people remember when Junior was an oyster shucker. After a short stint as a dishwasher, that was his main job, he got pretty good at it. I could do a dozen in a minute, he said. I could shuck a whole box in 15 minutes. He admitted it was an odd job to have. First when I started I was nervous, I was afraid I was going to stab myself, he said. But it got easier as time went on. Fancher stayed in that position for two years before moving onto the floor as a server, then as a bartender where hes been ever since. He admits hes seen just about everything in the years hes been behind that bar. It is like family here, especially when the people start to come back from up north, he said. I have regular customers who used to come here with their little children; now those children are of drinking age and they are still coming in with their parents. Hes also seen something of the cycle of life during his time behind the bar. Ive made many, many close friends, he said. Don and Rose from Minnesota came down every year. They always stayed at a place in Clearwater Beach and they used to invite me to dinner at their place. Two years ago Don passed away and Rose doesnt come down anymore. I speak to her occasionally on the phone. Fancher recalls other lost friends as well. George and Steph Gross were regulars here, they came from New Jersey, he said. They were good customers; they came down twice a year. George recently passed away, but I keep in touch with Steph. Day to day Fancher said his job gets hectic once the season starts and the snowbirds come back. It gets really busy and tough to keep track of the orders. You have to keep everything straight, but I work well with the floor staff so it really isnt too bad. And no wonder, much of the floor staff has been at Crabby Bills as long as he has. Sharon, Holly, Karen, Sandy Fancher lists the names off the top of his head easily. They have all been here for more than 15 years, he said. It is that longevity that gives the Loder family, the owners, a sense of pride. Honestly were blessed with the number of employees who stay around, said Matt Loder. We have 105 employees and the average tenure is 18 years. And that means something positive to the owner of any establishment. They know what to expect and we know what to expect and if they werent good, reliable, conscientious employees they wouldnt be here that long, he said. Loder had special words for Junior. He has an uncanny ability to remember the names of so many people, he said. And he remembers what each and every one of them drinks. Fancher is quick to return the compliment. The Loder family is good to work for, he said. We all wouldnt be around this long if they werent. Although single now, Fancher has raised a family thanks to the living hes made at Crabby Bills. His two adult children live nearby. Heather, 24, lives in St. Petersburg and his son, Michael Elmore, 26,He goes by JuniorBartender has been a fixture at Crabbys for decades Photo by BRIAN GOFFJunior Fancher pours a drink at the bar at Crabby Bills, where hes been a fixture for nearly 30 years. lives in Largo. What Fancher likes best about what he does is the friendliness, caused in part at least by him. The secret to that friendliness and his longevity and popularity is no doubt the result of his personal mantra. I like keeping everyone happy, he said. The best way I know how to do that is to treat them just like Id like to be treated. When asked if he plans to stick around for a while yet, he smiled and said, Oh yeah!

In addition to the name change, the organization also altered its brand promise and graphic identity. It is the organizations hope that the name Directions for Living and commitment that life gets better here will capture the true focus of the agency, which still includes but now extends well beyond the previously narrow mission of providing premier behavioral health services, as it enters the next stage of assisting Tampa Bay consumers along an expanding continuum of care. The Directions for Living logo, which was developed in collaboration with local branding and advertising firm PeakBiety, was carefully chosen to represent the dynamic integration of Directions for Livings four main service sets: prevention, wellness and recovery; adult behavioral health; childrens behavioral health; and child safety and family preservation. Together, these core areas make up the comprehensive, integrated health care agency that many have come to know through experience. The transition is well timed, as Directions is celebrating its 30th year of operation, along with several other significant milestones this year. Addressing the whole person by integrating care is one of the best ways to improve the quality of life for our children, adults, and families, said April Lott in a press release. Lott is president and CEO of Directions for Living. In addition to the broad scope of services offered at Directions for Living, which includes primary care, substance abuse treatment, behavioral health care, homeless outreach, and many other services, Directions for Living is also proud to be the provider of dependency case management and diversion services within the child welfare system of Pinellas County through its child safety and family preservation division. Directions for Living is proud of our commitment, contribution, and success in protecting children and preserving families, said Lott. Our new name, logo, and brand promise allow us to share that excitement with our community, funders, and the people we serve.

The 2013 Classic Beauties of Florida calendar is on sale beginning this month at www.Cougarsofflorida.com as well as at calendar signings in the Tampa area, the schedule of which can be found online. The 2013 theme is Classic Beauties of Florida and a portion of proceeds will benefit Quantum Leap Farm of Odessa, a nonprofit, nationally-recognized equestrian program that serves injured and disabled civilian adults and children, military service members and their families. The Cougars of Florida have now issued two calendars that celebrate women over 40 who look great, feel fantastic and give back to their communities by participation in such endeavors as the charity publications, a news release said. The first edition celebrating that raised $11,000 for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium; a second edition not only raised funds for Big Cat Rescue, a large exotic cat sanctuary, but was also sent to soldiers overseas in support of their service. After Veterans Day the organization shipped more than 300 calendars free of charge. The 2013 edition will have a new look: www.KimiCarrier.com, www.SalonIslandEstates .com, all helping to illustrate this years horsepower theme through visuals that utilize horse and sports car motifs. In selecting the recipient of this years proceeds, publisher and Tampa resident Kathleen Slaven said, Im not only an animal lover but a 25-year owner of horses. I have such a soft spot in my heart for these amazing creatures and their special connection to humans. I really feel that Quantum Leap Farm and their beautiful mission is deserving of assistance from our Florida ladies. The founder of Q.L.F., Edie Dopking, said, I was thrilled at Kathleens proposal as I have often thought of doing a calendar for our organization but lack of staff and time have prevented us from ever pursuing the idea.

He grew up in horrible conditions in a cage with very little human contact, so he is still timid. However, he has made great progress and now allows people to pick him up out of his crate and is learning to trust and like people. Junior weighs about 15 pounds and would do best in a home with no other dogs, or with dogs that are shy and sweet like him. He exhibits fear in the yard with other dogs, so he gets bullied. He walks well on a leash but is timid with passing cars and likes to stay close to you. He needs a patient owner who gives a lot of positive reinforcement.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesLeader Section B September 6, 2012Visit www.TBNweekly.com Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEOnly one new movie will open in wide release this week, with several others scheduled for limited release in select markets across the country.The WordsGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana Director: Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal Rated: PG-13 It was everything aspiring author Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper) needed to be. It was everything Dora Jansen (Zoe Saldana) knew he could be. Fuller. Truer. More honest. Hearing a succinct validation of the words unfolding his heart-rending tale of love and loss from the woman he loved, trumped the moral conundrum that lay in wait. It could cost him everything, in ways he never anticipated. It would bring him everything, in ways he always anticipated. There was just one problem. The words were not his. Rorys great American novel belonged to the voice of another. Riding acclaim on the stolen work of an Old Man (Jeremy Irons) proved more than an ethical breach. It silenced that mans public claim to his own life and the tragic choice he made as a Young Man (Ben Barnes) that would come to define him. Rory would find himself shadowing the Young Mans fate overwhelming ambition fueled by the love of words more than the love that inspired them. His life would play out on the pages of novelist Clay Hammonds (Dennis Quaid) latest bestseller. But it is in Hammonds secret past that Daniella (Olivia Wilde), a seductive grad student captivated by his work, suspects the line between fiction and nonfiction has been crossed. Bolstered by a stellar cast and told through multiple narratives, the romantic drama The Words explores the devastating consequences when ambition is valued above love.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Opening this weekendCooper stars as aspiring author in romantic drama The Words Photo by JONATHAN WENKBradley Cooper, left, stars as Rory Jansen and Jeremy Irons as The Old Man in CBS Films' romantic drama The Words.

Blast Off, running Sept. 7 through Aug. 17, 2013. In Blast Off: The Final Frontier, the David L. Mason Childrens Art Museum casts its gaze to the stars with a trip to outer space for the entire family. An exhibit of work from DFAC Summer Camp artists shares the same name, but occupies its own space in the Kokolakis Family Youth Gallery. NASA astronaut lands at DFACPinellas Countys own NASA astronaut Nicole Passonno Stott has been cleared for landing at the DFAC Kids Art Fest on Saturday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m. Stott will be on hand to present awards for the space-themed Blast Off exhibit in the Kokolakis Family Youth Gallery. She also will be giving a presentation at 11:45 a.m. and then signing autographs from 1 to 2 p.m. According to biographical data provided by NASA, Stott joined NASA in 1988 at the Kennedy Space Center as an operations engineer in the Orbiter Processing Facility. Stott worked in a variety of positions within NASA Shuttle Processing, bearing titles such as Vehicle Operations Engineer, NASA Convoy Commander and Shuttle Flow Director. Eventually, she became a member of the Space Station Hardware Integration Office and relocated to Huntington Beach, Calif. In 1998, she joined the Johnson Space Center team in Houston, Texas, as a member of the NASA Aircraft Operations Division. In 2000, Stott was selected as a mission specialist. Following completion of astronaut candidate training, she was assigned several technical duties and worked as a support astronaut for the Expedition 10 crew. Stott completed her first long duration space flight as a Flight Engineer on the ISS Expeditions 20 and 21 crews in 2009. She traveled to the International Space Station on the Space Shuttle Discovery with the crew of STS-128. While aboard the station, she performed one spacewalk, participated in the first track and capture of the Japanese cargo vehicle HTV, took part in the installation of the new treadmill and conducted a wide variety of science and research activities. She returned on the Space Shuttle Atlantis with the crew of STS-129. Stott also was a crewmember aboard STS-133 in 2011, which was the 39th and final mission for Space Shuttle Discovery. Stotts scheduled appearance at this years DFAC Kids Art Fest has generated excitement for both festival planners and potential attendees. The annual oneday festival is co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Dunedin. Weve worked with Kiwanis for many years with this art festival, said Todd Still, director of youth education at DFAC. This year, with all the buzz about the Mars landing and having Nicole Stott in addition to our tremendous group of presentation partners is going to make for a very festive event. This years Blast Off: The Final Frontier theme led to a natural fit with the Star Wars troopers of the 501st, who will be on-hand to keep the peace. Dance and Circus Acts of Tampa Bay will be making a return appearance at DFAC and putting on and incredible aerial display. Bones South, a bay area trombone group under the direction of Tom Drick, will present two space-inspired medleys, in addition to other spirited musical offerings. We have all the great handson activities that always accompany a new installation in the childrens museum inside DFAC, said George Ann Bissett, DFACs executive director. With DFACs Sterling Society bringing in a real astronaut, who has actually walked in space, it just adds a tremendous amount of otherworldly fun to what is always a tremendously festive event. Stellar synchronicity First we had the timely landing on Mars, said Catherine Bergmann in a press release promoting the new exhibits. Bergmann is DFACs curator and director of adult education. Now we have the visits of not only NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott from Houston, but also the artistic team of Hillerbrand and Magsamen, who hail from the Space City, also. It truly is like the stars are aligning, which is in itself maybe an all too appropriate phrase in this case. In a further stroke of kismet for DFAC, the team of Hillerbrand and Magsamen whose work is showcased in the Beam Me Up exhibition will be featured in an upcoming September story in the New York Times. Stephan Hillerbrand and Mary Magsamen as well as artists from DFACs Intergalactic exhibition will take part in the Artist Talk on Friday, Sept. 7, during the opening reception. Hillerbrand and Magsamens videos, photographs and installations reinterpret the people, activities and objects of their everyday life and engage the edge between the heroic and tragic, according to the artists website. They navigate perceptions of identity, emotion and family within a uniquely American subjectivity. Hillerbrand and Magsamen live and work in Houston. Magsamen is the curator for the micro-cinema The Aurora Picture Show. Hillerbrand teaches in the University of Houston Digital Media Program. Their work has been featured in film festivals, galleries and museums internationally.Visiting DFACDFAC galleries are open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. Gallery admissions is free.
