Some still see hope for mall By AMANDA SEBASTIANOSEMINOLE – One couple sat sharing food in what once was a filled food court as a handful of people bustled to and from the few stores left in the Seminole Mall. It was a bleak sight for a Friday night. Footsteps sounded like drums against the worn linoleum floors, echoing off the walls of once-businesses. At the entrance of the mall, white walls on the left and right sides guide shoppers several feet until the main stretch of the mall is visible around the corner. Bealls, CVS drug store, Ross and Stein Mart are just about the only stores left in the mall that is considered to be a major landmark for downtown Seminole. The mall went into foreclosure last month and has left locals asking, what’s next? Its 425,292 square feet of space isn’t filled to even half of its capacity, with stores or customers. It has gradually been getting more and more quiet over the years, 35-year shopper Marilyn Mackey said. “I really don’t want it to close, but it has definitely been getting slower and more quiet around here,” Mackey said. “I guess people are going to other local malls with the bigger department stores, like Tyrone Square or the Clearwater Mall.” The addition of more, larger stores, and a few entertainment or bookstores may help breathe life into the shopping center, Mackey said. The biggest sign of life at night came from Telly’s restaurant, the last place in business for customers to grab a bite to eat in the mall. The business has been in the mall for 30 years, and the owners are staying positive, hoping that someone will revive “the dead mall.” Features Business . . . . . . . . . .7-8A Classieds . . . . . . . . .4-7B Community . . . . . . . .12, 15A County . . . . . . . . . . .2-3A Entertainment . . . . . . .1, 3, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .15A Health & tness . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .9A Pet connection . . . . . . . .11A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .10A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising COUNTY Volunteers keep park operationalFor the past 23 years the George C.

Former dentist takes over Warhawks’ baseball programPhoto courtesy of BRAD RICHARDSONJeff Pincus, a chemistry teacher and a former practicing dentist, was recently named head baseball coach at Seminole High School. By BRAD RICHARDSONSEMINOLE – After a lengthy search, Seminole High School Principal Walter Weller recently named Dr. Jeffery Pincus head baseball coach. Pincus, a former practicing dentist and a chemistry teacher at Seminole, was notified July 21. He replaces Greg Olsen who stepped down in June to pursue a coaching job at Calvary Christian School. “I was very excited because it is a phenomenal program with a long and proud history,” Pincus said. “It was a position that was sought after by a great amount of coaches and I appreciate the confidence that Mr. Weller and the administration had in choosing me.” Although a full-time chemistry teacher at Seminole High School, Pincus is no stranger to the commitments necessary to succeed on the field. While he was a practicing dentist, he coached Little League teams and led them to many local and area titles. Even his own two children, Benjamin and Loren, have used baseball as a way to achieve a college education. When a chemistry teaching position came up at Seminole High in 2005, Pincus accepted the job along with an assistant coach role with Greg Olsen. He became one of the outfield coaches and was able to help lead Seminole to district titles. He became familiar with the coaching system that Olsen gave the program, along with many of the feeder systems that Seminole used to get players interested in playing at a young age. As a coach, Pincus manages a baseball team in a conventional way. He views the entire baseball season’s success as a whole and not by every single game; with every player understanding how to play the game well. “Like the players, I am a student of the game and baseball is not a science, it’s a game,” Pincus said. “I look at it as a game that requires fundamentals to be done properly; there is no one style that fits everyone. There is a time where you need to be peaking where winning is the most important thing and then there are See PINCUS, page 4A Family fishing fun Photos by JIM LAYFIELD Left: Colette Grabe, 7, of Seminole baits her hook at Family Fun Fishing Day Aug. 6 at Taylor Park.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration held a press briefing Aug. 4 where officials announced that the forecast actually increased the number of expected named storms as compared to predictions made in May. “The atmosphere and Atlantic Ocean are primed for high hurricane activity during August through October,” Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, said in a press release. “Storms through October will form more frequently and become more intense than we’ve seen so far this season.” Five named storms have formed since the beginning of hurricane season June 1, but none strengthened into hurricanes, which forecasters say is typical. Bell said during the press briefing that historical data shows the busiest part of the season is August through the end of October. “By far, the bulk of the action is in August, September and October, which is the reason we update the forecast,” he said. “There is no reason to be complacent. We’re just now getting into the peak part of the season.” Hurricane season ends officially on Nov. 30. Bell said the update includes an increased confidence in the forecast with experts calling for an 85 percent chance that their numbers would prove true. In May, NOAA’s experts had only a 65 percent level of confidence in the forecast. In May, NOAA predicted that 12 to 18 named storms would form. Now, the forecast calls for 14 to 19, including the five that have already formed. May’s forecast called for six to 10 hurricanes. Bell said the new predictions are for seven to 10 with three to five strengthening into major hurricanes, Category 3, 4 or 5. The long-term seasonal average is 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Bell said the same climate factors, which have been in place for the past several seasons, are occurring again this year. The tropical multi-decadal signal, in place since 1995, continues to allow favorable ocean and atmospheric conditions conducive for storms and hurricanes. There is reduced wind shear and lower air pressure across the tropical Atlantic. In addition, temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean are the third highest on record, and there is a possibility that La Nia could redevelop, he said. La Nia is characterized by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific, compared to El Nio, which is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific. During La Nia, the normal climate patterns are enhanced, according to NOAA’s website. Dr. William Gray, professor emeritus at the Colorado State University, pioneered research efforts leading to the discovery of La Nia effects on Atlantic hurricane activity. According to his research, the chances for the continental U.S. and the Caribbean Islands to experience hurricane activity increases substantially during La Nia. Gray and Dr. Phil Klotzbach, CSU research scientist, updated their season forecast on Aug. 3, which remains unchanged. They say residents living in coastal areas should prepare for 16 named storms, nine hurricanes and as many as five major hurricanes. Steve Woodard, FEMA deputy director for response, talked about the need to prepare and be ready for any disaster, including a hurricane. “We’ve been lucky recently,” he said. “But that’s no reason to be complacent.” The last hurricane to make landfall in the United States was Ike in 2008. Disaster can happen at any time; however, hurricanes most likely happen during a particular season, making them easier for which to prepare. “It is still early in this hurricane season, and we know it can take only one storm to devastate communities and families,” said FEMA deputy administrator Rich Serino. “Many disasters come without warning, but that’s not the case with hurricanes. This is hurricane season, if you haven’t already, now is the time to take a few simple steps to get you and your family prepared.” Officials talked about the “extreme weather” that has been creating problems across the nation – tornados, flooding, wildfires, the heat wave gripping the midwest, increasing drought conditions in places such as Texas. “Extreme weather is on the rise,” said Dr. Jack Hays, director of the National Weather Service.

McGough Nature Park has been operating in Largo. And thanks to an army of volunteers known as “Friends of the Parks,” the facility continues to operate at full capacity despite recent budget cuts that threatened to close the Nature Center, the nerve center of the park. Eight years ago Pat Edmond became interested in the park and after attending several naturalist programs signed on as a volunteer. Since then she has become the president of the Friends group and continues to spend hours each week teaching young people about the importance of nature and why they should care. “Education Outreach is the most important thing we do here,” she said. “Budget cuts have made it impossible for the schools to send the children here, so we go to the schools.” That is just one of the many tasks the volunteers are involved in regularly. Edmond said the most important thing the volunteers did was two years ago when the city of Largo had to trim the city budget and the Nature Center at the Park was on the chopping block. “Week after week we would go to the meetings and object to the closing,” she said. “Then somebody advised us to do more than just complain; we had to come up with a solution. So we did, and we managed to save the center.” Now volunteers are on deck every morning to open the center and get things going until a staff member comes on duty sometime later in the morning. The volunteers conduct tours, operate day camps and camp-outs and last year even organized a 5K race to Photo by BRIAN GOFFVolunteer Pat Edmond conducts an environmental class for young participants at a day camp at the McGough Nature Park.raise money. Money raised through those activities is paying for necessities, which the city cannot afford. Just this past week a complete new video alarm system was installed at the Park. Vandals had been breaking into the center in recent weeks; the alarm system is expected to stop that. Just a year ago vandals released the great horned owl, J.R., who was kept in a cage behind the center. A family who found him abandoned as a chick raised J.R. as a pet. It was thought that he would never survive in the wild because he has never learned hunting skills. He couldn’t even live in the bird sanctuary because he had bonded with humans, not other owls. But it seems J.R. fooled them all. It has been a year and he is seen occasionally flying around McGough Park, thriving in the wild. Inside the Nature Center are other live creatures which visitors can read about, and children who attend day camp during the summer get to learn all about the importance of being “green”. “The children are our most important asset,” said Edmond. “They have to know how crucial the preservation of nature is, because someday they may be the ones going to the podium at council meetings fighting to maintain this place.” Lest you think Edmond is upset with the city of Largo for threatening to close the Nature Center, far from it. “I don’t know of any other community that offers as much as Largo in terms of outdoor programs and allowing residents to do things in nature,” said Edmond. “Our green space is important.” Calendar benefits Big Cat Rescue Photo courtesy of KATHLEEN SLAVENMichele Yeager poses at Honeymoon Island for the cover photo of the 2012 Cougars of Florida calendar, which will be released online at www.cougarsofflorida.com and at various venues Aug. 14.

4A SEB Beacon, August 11, 2011If there were more stores that appealed to a younger crowd, or to the families in the area, business may pick up, daughter and employee of the family-owned business Georgia Boulieres said. She thinks the reason the clientele is made up of mostly seniors shopping at the mall lately is because the younger to middle age demographics aren’t represented and don’t see any stores that appeal to them. Seminole Mall was built in 1964 and hasn’t been renovated since 1992. The dated building could use a face-lift, shoppers and workers agreed. The hushed atmosphere is relaxing to some customers, like patron Patrick Benturella who still loves shopping at the mall. “This mall has really been here forever, and it is quiet – but I kind of like it,” Benturella said. “What I think, and hope, happens is someone will buy it up at a bargain, add new stores and keep it running. I hope it stays open one way or another.” Benturella has been a Seminole resident for most of his life and has been shopping the stores at the mall for years, but can’t deny a change in the amount of people frequenting the mall. Across the mall is another hot spot where most of the life inside is found, the Bealls department store. The close proximity of the mall to local retirement homes, practically walking distance, is something the seniors need to have to look forward to, employee Louise Horbat said. “Seniors are already upset they have to walk, or use their wheelchairs, across a major intersection just to go to Publix and get food,” she said. “Now we’re going to take away one of their closest and favorite stores?” Horbat has worked in the mall for 12 years, and helped open up the Bealls. Though the rest of the mall may be hurting, she has seen a steady flow of business and hasn’t really noticed a decrease. Patrons Linda and Edward Stamborski were avid about needing Bealls to stay open, especially after the Madeira Beach branch closed recently. Though the mall seems like a ghost town from the outside, the remaining stores still claim to have a strong base of loyal customers that rely on the stores. Many are up for the idea of renovation of the mall and perhaps temporarily closing it in order to do so, but feel that there would be a loss if it were to close down permanently. Seniors living within close proximity to the shopping plaza and other loyal customers that still enjoy shopping at Seminole Mall urge for a new buyer with fresh ideas to liven up the empty spaces, including the food court that now consists of one restaurant. While the future of the large space is unknown, business owners, workers and shoppers are hopeful that things will turn around for the mall and bring it back to the 1990s, better, busier days. MALL, from page 1Atimes where developing team cohesion and solidifying roles are more important.” Joining Pincus in the dugout will be a group of assistant coaches that will offer multiple perspectives on how to handle many of the toughest games to come. Many of the returning coaching staff includes Tom Beck and J.J. Johnson. “What the coaches offer is diversity,” Pincus said. “We have the entire range of personalities and styles on the team. They have the experience that is needed from both the professional and high school level of coaching to help players get to the next level.” Pincus will become the coach of a baseball program that is very well established. He views Seminole as a team capable of winning a state championship. “Seminole baseball is great not by accident,” Pincus said. “I think it is one of the paragon schools when it comes to baseball. It has amazing support by the boosters, faculty and the community but most importantly has great people that, when these kids are young, start to teach them the right way to play the highest level of baseball.” Senior Jordan Doyle said he is happy with Pincus as a choice and cannot wait to see how the season unfolds. “It’s great to have him since he has been around the program the last couple of years,” Doyle said. “I know many of the kids like him and how he inspires the team.” For more information about Seminole baseball, visit www.eteamz.com/seminolewarhawksbaseball/.

Public schools begin classes Aug. 22.PTSA proposes rate increase By SUZETTE PORTERST. PETERSBURG – The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority joins a growing list of government agencies approving tentative millage increases for fiscal year 2011-2012. The PSTA Board tentatively approved a proposed rate of 0.7305 mills at its July 27 meeting. The current rate is 0.5601 mills. The rate will be used to calculate taxes for Truth in Millage statements to be mailed to property owners by the Property Appraiser’s Office on Aug. 22. The tentative millage is the highest rate PSTA can impose; however, the board could decide to reduce the millage rate before final approval on Sept. 14. PSTA needs to balance its budget despite continuing reductions in revenue. Since 2007, the county’s public transit provider has lost more than 30 percent in property tax revenue, which is its primary funding source, according to information from Bob Lasher, manager of PSTA Community Relations. There also is a possible 30 percent cut coming in federal transportation funding. Increasing the millage rate would help the PSTA board balance the budget for the next three years and fully fund its reserves. It also would allow the board to minimize service cuts to 1 percent and still improve service along Central Avenue in St. Petersburg and begin Flex Routes in northern areas of the county next year. PSTA has cut its staff from 617 in 2008 to 537 to date. It’s been three years since non-union employees and some union employees have had a pay raise. Still, PSTA carried more passengers in 2010 than ever before – a record ridership of 13.1 million overall, Lasher said in an email. Historically low funding for transit despite fare increases in 2008 and 2010 continue to create challenges for PSTA. Lasher said of 57 similar sized metropolitan areas, 500,000 to 1.5 million in population, PSTA is 39th in annual per capita spending on transit – or a little more than half the average spending of the other systems. PSTA continues to look for ways to cut its costs by streamlining services, reducing fleet numbers and locking in fuel prices on an annual basis to minimize cost variability. An investment in 24 diesel-electric hybrid buses is helping reduce costs. The buses get 56 percent higher fuel efficiency. Lasher said every $1 increase in a gallon of fuel costs PSTA an additional $2.1 million. PSTA buys about 2.1 million gallons of fuel each year. The Tampa Bay region is known for its transit systems and not in a good way. The Brookings Institution ranked it 77th out of the nation’s top metropolitan areas. Forbes Magazine ranked the Tampa region last in a listing of 60 cities with the worst commutes in the United States. Further PSTA service cuts could severely affect the local economy, Lasher said, since PSTA’s largest ridership is commuters – those going back and forth to work. Two public hearings are scheduled on the millage rate and final PSTA budget. The dates are Wednesday, Sept. 7 and 14 at PSTA headquarters, 3201 Scherer Drive, St. Petersburg. The times have not been set. Despite bad press for the region’s transit system, Lasher was able to point out one recent accomplishment for Pinellas County. PSTA carried more passengers last year than the Transit System of the Year, as awarded by the American Public Transportation Association. “What’s more, PSTA hit that mark with a significantly smaller budget and staff than the Transit System of the Year.” For more information, visit psta.net.Re-inspections coming for reclaimed water systemsPinellas County Utilities inspectors will soon be conducting re-inspections of all connections to the reclaimed water distribution system. These inspections are required by the Florida Administrative Code and are designed to protect public health and safety of the drinking water supply. The inspections ensure that there are no cross connections between the drinking water system and any other source of water, including reclaimed water. As part of this state-mandated requirement, reclaimed water sprinkler system inspections will be occurring in the coming months and will continue on a periodic basis. These inspections require Pinellas County inspectors to access the reclaimed water service box, potable (drinking) water meter and potable water hose bibbs, and to conduct an inspection of sprinkler systems and hose bibb components to ensure compliance with the state law. During these inspections, the potable water meter servicing your property will be turned off for a short time and potable water hose bibbs will be opened. Residents may notice a small amount of air in the plumbing system when faucets are initially turned on after the inspection. When reclaimed water service was initially established, the terms of service explained the importance of the county or Pinellas County Public Health Unit staff periodically entering the premises to inspect reclaimed water piping and fittings. Most inspections do not require the homeowner or resident to be home to operate their irrigation system, unless the inspector determines that a complete cross connection inspection is necessary due to system alterations made since the initial inspection. Utilities inspectors will be in uniform and driving marked county vehicles. A tag will be left on the door with results of the inspection. If customers have questions or need additional information, please call Pinellas County Utilities Customer Service at 4644000.Justice and Consumer Services plans to move officeAs of Monday, Aug. 29, Pinellas County’s Department of Justice and Consumer Services will be in new offices at 631 Chestnut St. in downtown Clearwater, the former home of the Pinellas County Park Department (currently Parks and Conservation Services).

Although Pinellas County is not in a primary area, local farmers can apply for emergency loans due to a rule that creates eligibility for contiguous counties. Hillsborough County is included in the list of primary disaster areas. Qualified farm operators in the designated areas are eligible for low interest emergency loans from USDA’s Farm Service Agency, provided that eligibility requirements are met. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the EM loan program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity. USDA also has made other programs available to assist farmers and ranchers, including the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program, approved as part of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008; the Emergency Conservation Program; Federal Crop Insurance; and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers may contact their local USDA Service Centers for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs.

The group made strides in increasing the millage rate for 2011-12 but are still on the fence about Caddy’s, its signs all over the beach and what parts of the beach are private or public property. All of the ordinances involving the amendment of the land development codes, regarding flood control, religious use and consistency requirements, were passed unanimously. The vote on employee dental, life and long term disability insurance was close but Commissioners Carol Coward and Alan Bildz, along with Mayor Bob Minning were not in favor, and outnumbered Commissioners Phil Collins and Gail Caldwell with no’s. If the bill were passed, there would have been an increase of $6,873 per year for dental insurance. The current cost for a year is $20,980. “I’ve been very vocal against this, I just don’t think it’s fair,” Coward said. The most highly debated topic of the meeting was the millage rate for fiscal 2011-12. City Manager Reid Silverboard stressed the importance of raising the rate so the revenue could be used to repair the bridges; there’s a need to be prepared, especially for severe weather instances where residents will need to use the bridges, he said. Silverboard and Bildz had a brief back-and-forth about the timeline of when the bridges need and should be rebuilt. Bildz remained unconvinced and proposed waiting on replacing the bridges, bringing the millage rate back down to 2.761 and focusing on the beach trail for now. “I can only go on the information I was given, and the people said that they thought the beach trail was most important,” Bildz said. Coward agreed at first and wanted to focus on one item of business at a time, but Minning and Collins may have changed her mind with their views. Collins pointed out that if the bridges collapse into the bay, the residents won’t be able to use the trail anyway, so waiting would be “totally irresponsible.” Minning agreed and made two promises: the increase is going toward an infrastructure, not to pay someone’s salary, and now that the millage rate will be raised, it can’t go any higher, but can always go lower. The resolution was almost unanimous, with only one no from Bildz. The most debated topic of the night was during workshop, when former Commissioner Ed Gayton, binders and poster board in hand, stood behind the podium and said to the commissioners, “It’s not about Caddy’s or Sunset Beach, it’s about who owns the beach.” The issue has been talked about for quite some time. Gayton joked that when he requested the topic during a recent workshop, commissioners probably thought to themselves, not Sunset Beach talk again. For those playing catch up, he was talking about Caddy’s restaurant, and the signs that have been posted that are now prohibiting coolers and sometimes non-customers from using the portion of the beach by the restaurant. Gayton believes that the beach is public property, because the mean high water mark, the division between public and private land created in 1968, cuts through what is now Caddy’s. Gayton said that he and several others have been prohibited from using that part of the beach. Coward then asked Gayton what he would like the commissioners to do. “I want to give the constitutional right back to the people, to enjoy public lands that were given as a right to the people,” Gayton said. “I want the signs taken down and for it to be known that this area is public property.’ Caddy’s owner Tony Amico agreed with Gayton that anything seaward of the water line is state property. However, he then said the beach by Caddy’s was alienated by the state to him, so it no longer belongs to the state. “I received a quick claim deed that shows I received and am the owner of the property,” Amico said. “The area from my property to the water was given to me by the state.” Although specifics of the meeting between Amico and the Board of Trustees was confidential, Amico assured the panel that he had the correct documentation to show that the area of beach by Caddy’s was in fact his. Playing on Bildz’s spiel earlier about protecting the constitution, Amico asked commissioners to think back and remember how one is allowed to protect and defend their property. He’s just defending his, he said. “Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that I own this property?” Amico asked. Bildz replied, “Yes, there’s a question in my mind.” “Well, I expected that from you, anyone else?” Amico said. Audience members came up and spoke against the signs on the beach and vouched that they had been kicked off the beach. After the Caddy’s discussion, a few other issues were discussed including a proposal for a contract to help save the sea grass. Due to the construction of the Treasure Island Causeway Bridge, where there is a high density of sea grass, the amount of sea grass has decreased. One of the options discussed for recovery of the already damaged sea grass, was a mitigation site that would repair about 3,500 feet and cost about $40,000. Coward suggested blocking off the area where future renourishment will be taking place so boats and other disturbances can’t come through in the meantime. The Caddy’s discussion is still under way and being investigated, while the board works on ways to preserve sea grass.Redington honors board member By MELISSA LATTMANREDINGTON BEACH – The town honored longtime Park Board member Mary Campbell at a special reception at the start of the Aug. 2 regular commission meeting. Campbell, 93, has served on the board since its inception. Campbell, along with her husband Guy, helped start Friendship Park, which is across from Town Hall. The park started as vacant land. Campbell named the park. She was instrumental in getting people to donate trees and benches in memory of loved ones for Friendship Park as well as other parks in town, Park Board Secretary Peggy Akery said. For the last decade Campbell has handled the holiday lights, negotiating the contract with the vendor. Campbell, along with other park board members, helped with “turtle watches” for nesting sea turtles. Campbell also has been on the garden club since it formed, Akery said. “Mary has been an inspiration to us all for her hard work and joyous nature,” wrote Park Board member Marilyn Barber in a letter read at the meeting. “Many of the dedicated trees and benches in the parks were provided due to her work in their solicitation and procurement. She led the response to citizens’ requests for holiday decorations, first with pennants and later with lights.”

Six people were transported to local hospitals, all with non-lifethreatening injuries. According to deputies, Lily Williams, 56, of St. Petersburg was driving a Ford Econoline Van with five passengers aboard.

Deputies said Williams made a left turn to go into the War Veterans Memorial Park in front of White’s vehicle.

Williams along with three passengers in the van was all transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Business 7A Beacon, August 11, 2011 LARGO … Award-winning Tutterow Dancers Inc., the premier dance studio in the county, is preparing for its 2011-12 dance season. Classes will be presented in the new Largo Community Center, 400 Alternate Keene Road, Largo. The 30,000-square-feet, LEED-certified facility opened in January 2011. According to Debbie Kennedy, studio director of Tutterow Dancers, the beautiful center boasts three state-of-the-art studio spaces with floating floors, barres and mirrors. A passion for teaching the art of dance Tutterow has been contracted through Largos Recreation, Parks and Arts Department since 1976. The studio is such an important part of my life,Ž Debbie said. It is a pleasure to teach the students and watch their love of dance and talents grow.Ž The faculty at Tutterow believes a teachers influence on a students future extends far beyond what goes on in the classroom. Our teaching philosophy is centered on instilling a passion for dance while building self-esteem and confidence in every child,Ž Debbie explained. Several studies have shown that participation in the arts helps children improve test scores. In addition to the academic benefits, dance offers plenty of less quantifiable rewards, too: It evokes our humanity, inspires joy and expands our emotional understanding. The Tutterow faculty fully appreciates the long-term impact of this creative endeavor, fueling their passion for teaching students. "Our teachers are chosen not only for their dance experience but for their ability to relate to the typical needs of our students,Ž Debbie said. Our professional staff continues with ongoing training to ensure we are always providing students and parents with the best experience possible.Ž Keeping the staff knowledgeable in their fields is one of the strengths of the Tutterow Dance faculty. Its important that our instructors are able to teach proper technique,Ž said Debbie. However, proper technique alone is simply not enough. Good teaching includes knowledge, patience, passion and devotion at its very core." Mary Frangione, ballet director for the Tutterow Dancers, is the embodiment of that ideal. Mary joined the faculty after her family moved to Florida from New Jersey where she was the owner of the Dance Exchange Studio. Mary was a member of the Duquesne University Tamburitzans, a folk music and dance ensemble. She performed professionally as a Radio City Music Hall Rockette in New York City. Ballet as the foundation for dance Ballet is the foundation of every dancer,Ž said Debbie. All of our students in our performance company are required to take ballet with Ms. Mary.Ž The training in ballet, the lines of great posture and the discipline create a foundation so that the body can move freely in all directions. It encourages the proper way of movement for the dancer.Ž Mary said other forms of dance use this training as a basis. The fundamental skills developed at the ballet bar make other forms of dance more approachable. At Tutterow, classes focus on proper technique, correct body placement, strengthening and terminology. Students start at the bar … even the youngest ones. Even when were preparing for the recital, were still working on basics,Ž Mary explained. Were constantly working on technique,Ž she added. Were not simply a recital studio.Ž Ultimately, its the faculty that sets Tutterow Dancers Inc. apart from other studios. It starts with the faculty,Ž Mary said. They have such a great rapport with all the students. Theyre all so good at bringing out the best in children.Ž Award-winning performance company The Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow Performance Company originated in 1982 to offer additional performance opportunities for talented young dancers. Consisting of dancers ages 6 to 18, the performance company attends workshops, master classes and competitions throughout the United States. Participation in Stars of Tomorrow is for the student with the passion, desire and dedication to fully excel in the art of dance. Becoming a member of the Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow Performance Company is by audition only. Please contact the studio for more information 727-585-1232. Over the years, the company has consistently won national awards in competition. Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow have performed at Walt Disney World, the Florida State Fair, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Disneys California Adventure and on Royal Caribbeans cruise ships. Outside the United States, the performance company traveled to Prague and Germany in 2008 to perform for U.S. troops stationed in Stuttguart and Bamberg. They have been invited to return to Europe next summer. We are so excited about our upcoming trip to perform at Euro Disney in Paris, and feel honored to perform for the troops in Germany next summer,Ž Debbie said. The Stars of Tomorrow will perform in Germany at the German American Festival and will take a class with a member of the Paris Ballet Company. They will visit Austria for the Sound of Music Tour and perform for some of the U.S. troops stationed in Germany. Our military gives up so much for our entire country,Ž said Brittney Kennedy, Tutterow faculty member. Its just nice to even bring them a little piece of home.Ž To raise funds for the summer 2012 tour, a golf tournament is set for Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club.

I CAN HELP! 081111 www.ShortSale-Pinellas.com 727-289-4810 KellerWilliams Realty And who among us is innocent?The debt ceiling is raised. The stock market drops. Americans tighten their [financial] belts further. The government barely does the same. For the tenuous State of our Union, some say it’s a victory. Others call it a weak down payment. For others, it’s a disgusting reneging of responsibility. It’s all true. Spookily, the same is playing out at sea as well. To recap the most recent maritime events in our local waters, there are three stories to tell. Like the stranglehold of Washingtonian inertia against our staggering national debt, the oldest of the youngest members of our local bottlenose dolphin community is entangled in fishing line. One is innocent. The other is not. Like our own country, the half-yearling bottlenose dolphin calf Vidalia was born in the chilliest of times. Yet it survived to triumphant over environmental ravages, which at sea include parasites and predators (Dolphin Watch’s “Hassles of tassels”; whether in a good or bad way, I daren’t say). Vidalia launched undeterred into its early childhood, as our young country did, swelling from the riches of its own making. The dolphin calf swelled from the miracle of a healthy mother’s milk, stimulated by the baby’s presence. Our country swelled from the industry of her citizens, inspired by the freedom to excel. All was well for many moons until the calf encountered something it could have never recognized as a threat: discarded fishing line. From an apparently modest, if such a thing is possible, body wrapping of three strands of fishing line in mid-July – the way we encircle a wrapped gift with thin bright ribbon pulled nice and tight – to a dangerous wad of hideously accumulated fishing line and imbedded fish hook by the end of the month, the innocent baby dolphin Vidalia is either sentenced to a slow death or destined to suffer a terrifying rescue at the hands of people expert at catching, rescuing and releasing entangled marine life. In the world of marine biology, these experts are known as stranding biologists. Without minimizing the calf’s uncertain fate, one can’t ignore Vidalia’s plight as a metaphor of our beautiful young country’s future. But the question of relative innocence remains. The second story is about Peewee, the suddenly teen-aged dolphin released from childhood by her mother P’s giving birth to Peewee’s rival sibling over the Fourth of July. I had wished for a physical way to identify Peewee after she weaned from her prolific mother As told in Dolphin Watch’s “Known by the slit of a shark,” that wish was unabashedly fulfilled. Last Sunday, after tracking the slow milling of tense adults (not unlike Congress over the same period), a lone young teen dolphin ventured over to our boat. Its behavior said it knew us well. Its newly wounded dorsal fin, pink at the top from the fresh loss of its fin tip, made immediate identification impossible. But later analysis of photo-identification pictures showed that it was Peewee. That glancing blow from a shark the month before took but the slightest toll. Peewee the kid dolphin lost her previously secure life at the side of her powerful and protective mother P and then took another hit that, all things considered, maybe wasn’t insurmountable. Another metaphor for our beautiful country? Maybe. The third story is of the nursery group of dolphins we saw the same day as Vidalia and Peewee. There were four local dolphin moms (Stick, Bet, SBT and Courtney). Each mom was with her calf. What made this maritime moment special was that three of the four moms had tiny shiny new dolphin babies, none more than four weeks old in a potential lifespan of 50 years – a generation by bottlenose dolphin terms but also human terms before medical care. SBT had a baby in 2006 that died. She kept the body with her as long as she could but inevitably had to move on. The other two moms with tiny shiny babies are Stick and Bet, calves we watched grow up (Dolphin Watch’s “Spooky action at a distance”; Bet on the surging and sucking of fortunes). The fragile new lives they’ve engendered, stumbling up to the surface for life-giving air, are the first for them both. Like all new ventures, they represent great promise. Are they also a metaphor? The question remains. Who among us is innocent?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit GA1088-1815, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Not pictured is Manager Jerry King. Full moon mangrove snapper With the full moon approaching, now is the time to target mangrove snapper. Bay reefs and bridges as well as offshore reefs are good places to target snapper right now, however, typically the farther offshore you fish the larger the snapper will be. The many manmade artificial reefs that range anywhere from 10 to 12 miles offshore offers the perfect habitat to attract big schools of snapper. Snapper prefer spots with a lot of high structure, and many of these reefs are constructed of huge barges as well as large slabs of concrete. The preferred baits when targeting snapper would be small pilchards and/or threadfin herring as well as live shrimp. The threadfins and pilchards can be netted at any bridge shadow line; their abundance can make it easy to collect plenty of bait to use on the hook as well as for chum in a short amount of time. These small baits work just as well dead as alive. Use a quarter inch cast net and fill a five-gallon bucket about half way with bait and ice, and you should have enough bait for a good bite. Anchor up-tide of the bridge or reef that you intend to fish and begin the chumming process. Deploying a quality chum block will make all the difference. Combine that with a constant flow of free pilchards, and soon enough you’ll have the snapper balled up and working bait right behind the boat. As a rule of thumb, the larger snapper will hang closer to the surface, so free-lining your bait will look the most natural to these larger, more wary fish. Free-lining requires you to pay close attention to how your bait looks as its falling natural toward the bottom. If you don’t allow your bait to fall at the same rate as those you’re throwing out for chum, the snapper will refuse your offering every time. For the terminal end definitely think smaller and lighter – No. 1 hooks and long stretch of 15 or 20 pound leader and 10 or 15 pound braided line. If current speed is too strong to allow for free-lining or you’re trying to get the kids involved, try using a small egg sinker anywhere from an eighth to a half an ounce at the most.

Visit www.secondchanceforstrays.petfinder.com.No such thing as too much informationBecause pets cannot speak and tell us what is wrong, it is extremely important to monitor your pet as closely as you can. That means observing your pet urinate and defecate so you can see what the urine and feces look like. Is the stool normal or is it diarrhea? Does the stool have blood or mucous in it? Is your pet defecating and urinating daily? Is there blood in the urine? Is your pet straining to defecate or urinate? Monitoring how much your pet is eating and drinking is very important as well. Self-feeders make that very difficult to tell from day to day. Self-feeders also can lead to overweight pets. Is your pet drinking excessively and urinating more than normal? This is a classic symptom for diabetes, hyperthyroidism in older cats, Cushing’s disease in older dogs, and kidney disease. The more questions you are able to answer accurately, the more likely your veterinarian can diagnose what is wrong with your pet. The person who is most in tune to the pet’s daily behavior is the one who should bring the pet in for their appointment. If that can’t be done, then writing down your main concerns about your pet as well as some of these answers on a piece of paper and giving it to the person bringing the pet is very helpful. They can then give this to the veterinarian for review. Knowing exactly what brand and type of food, heartworm and flea preventative used is also very helpful. Many animals can have food allergies, food intolerances, or problems related to changing brands of food too frequently. Knowing when a new food, treat, or bag was opened or introduced to your pet can help a lot when trying to diagnose vomiting and diarrhea cases. Many dogs can get bloody stool and vomit when they eat people food, or are out in the backyard unattended eating whatever they find in the yard. Therefore, walking your dogs and watching what they are putting in their mouths or knowing what is in your backyard can be of great help. One very costly disease we see in pets is pancreatitis. In dogs this can be caused by feeding your dog high-fat people food. That strip of bacon or fat off your steak can be a costly mistake. If the vomiting is serious with this disease then these pets have to be hospitalized for treatment for a few to several days with IV fluids and injectable medications. That is what makes this such a costly disease to treat. Knowing what others in the household are feeding your pet, especially at parties is important. Dogs and cats pick up on stress easily and this can lead to several health problems as well. Cats can get blood in their urine for several reasons but one reason (interstitial cystitis) has been linked to stress. If you eliminate the stress, then the blood goes away. It could be something as simple as construction in the house, a new baby, a new pet, new address change, etc. So as you can see, veterinarians rely on you, the pet owner, to be very observant of your pet’s daily activities and behaviors in order to develop a diagnostic and treatment plan that will be in your pet’s best interest. If we have no knowledge as to how the pet is eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, or if the pet is vomiting, limping, etc. then all we have is what we find on our exams to determine the diagnostic and treatment plan. Since our pets are so good at hiding pain and sickness, a lot of the time we won’t pick this up on our exams without some kind of history from the owner and diagnostic tests. Knowing more about your pet will help to ensure the best and most cost effective care.Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 13 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.

With abandoned buildings serving as bleak visual reminders of the lingering effects of the recession, it’s easy to overlook some good news pertaining to commercial and residential development in the area. Take Seminole, for example. About 60 acres in the Bay Pines area will be developed. The project includes 330 apartments and 483 residential units for senior housing or townhomes. Developers are seeking contractors to build a 125-room hotel, 204,000 square feet of retail space, the residential component and a restaurant. The project should create a significant amount of property taxes and other revenue for the city as well as job opportunities. Meanwhile, the news that the Seminole Mall, located on Park Boulevard, is under foreclosure proceedings could be the start of new development on the property. Its central location and close proximity to the beaches eventually should attract investors committed to some type of venture that will revitalize the property, with or without the mall. The time frame for such a turnaround remains to be seen, but city officials see the foreclosure as a positive process. In Largo, the west Walsingham Road corridor has enjoyed a rebirth of restaurants and other businesses in the past couple of years, particularly in the past six months. That’s not surprising since it is surrounded by stable residential areas and located close to the beaches. Clearwater officials are all smiles about plans for a three-story building on the Clearwater Beach that will have a Starbucks Coffee Shop and a Hooters Restaurant. Though the city may take some flak about the beach losing its mom and pop ambiance, the new development should help provide more options for visitors, especially since both Starbucks and Hooters are both successful business chains. Local government officials recognize they have to take more of an active role than just be cheerleaders to attract new development. Reducing red tape in the permitting process and relaxing signage rules are good tactics to help new as well as existing businesses, but long-term consistent economic planning is the most effective means of weathering a recession. Of course, no local government can be entirely successful of ridding its community of abandoned commercial properties. Even the best efforts to encourage new development and support existing businesses sometimes fail, no matter what governments do. See a new restaurant, auto parts store or other business where an abandoned building used to be? OK, it may not be the essence of beauty. But from an economic standpoint, consider it a sight for sore eyes.

Unlike the Biblical Lazarus who came out restored to do good, this plan has been restored to do evil. The Clearwater Beacon quotes Mayor Hibbard: “I am not comfortable with cameras in general … it smacks of Big Brother but we are facing budget woes.” Money talks and morals walk. The Big Brother factor should be enough in itself to stop this in its tracks from a mayor who should understand the full meaning of his words. But I believe he was lobbied, enticed and swayed much like big government. I am like Mary, grieving at the lost brother. Clearwater has been sold to Big Brother with the mayor’s consent – for money like Judas Iscariot. Red light cameras are purely and simply a way to make up for lost revenue in these hard economic times. This is a very obvious money-grabbing ploy. Installing red light cameras is certainly not to free up police officers since an officer will have to review the ticket and video. But they say they are free to substitute a certified technician? Who is certifying the technician who is paying for his training or certification? Is that a whole new job title? Two things that cost money? Red light cameras don’t prevent accidents; they just record them – proving fault. How much manpower will be needed when tickets and fines are challenged? It was not me driving the car you say? Now I have to prove who was? I read recently if you say it wasn’t you driving then the other person will get more fines? So now you want to force people to say they were driving so that their sister, brother, aunt, uncle or friend won’t have to pay a bigger fine than if it were you. And that’s OK with Big Brother since they still get your money and they tell the victim it’s OK. It won’t be on your license anyway – just pay up. Slippery slope isn’t it. Just remember Clearwater Council, you freely oiled the slope. Let’s not forget these cameras are outsourced, so who is holding them accountable? How much will it take to hold them accountable? Money breeds contempt. So who will make sure the city of Clearwater is getting everything it is supposed to receive? Now we have to pay to have that outside vendor/company audited. How often and at what cost? The city gets $75 of every $158 they collect and they still have to pay the camera vendor. Stop the red-light cameras and start acting like the Constitution means something. Vonabell Sherman ClearwaterMemorial seems heavy-handedEditor: Though I by no means want to disparage the feeling of the effort, I believe at least a few of the victims of 9/11 would share my dismay that our limited green spaces attract so much concrete. In this small Madeira Beach park in particular the proposed memorial seems heavy-handed and out of scale, further blocking the view of the water. Folks who share my sentiments are rarely consulted about such things. If we were, we might suggest something living instead, perhaps a memorial grove of something that blooms in September. However, history instructs me that imagination invites abuse. And so, I await it. Michael Blom Madeira Beach It was 50 years ago this summer that a couple of guys were sitting in a California garage, noodling around with a song. Their names were Mike and Brian. As Mike recalls, “It didn’t take that long. Just a few minutes.” And when you read the final lyrics you believe him:Surfin’ is the only life The only way for me. Now surf, surf with me Bom Bom Dit Di Dit Dip Bom Bom Dit Di Dit Dip...Mike and Brian, along with two of Brian’s brothers and a family friend, took the song to a local record company, which had wanted them to do a folk tune like the Kingston Trio. Instead, the kids gave them this little ditty, called – no surprise – “Surfin’.” And the Beach Boys were born. I don’t know which stuns me more: that these guys have been around 50 years, or that I still remember their first hit. But there is something undeniable about the Beach Boys legacy, something that says there is music, and there is iconic music. Why do songs like “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” or “Fun Fun Fun” still sound fresh, still make people smile, still throw a beam of sunshine over the coldest day? It has to be more than the chords,right? “Wereallywantedtodo somethingthatwasus,and surfingwasarealityinSouthernCalifornia,”MikeLovetold meintalkingabouttheirfirst hitsonglastweek.TheBeach Boys,intheircurrentincarnation,werecomingtosuburban Detroitforaconcert.Ofcourse, manyofthenamesthatmade theoriginalgroupsospecial weren’tthere–includingBrian Wilsonorhisnow-departed brothers,DennisandCarl.But atthispoint,eventheBeach Boysnameisaninstitution. “Surfingwaspartofourenvironment–partofthelandscape –partofthelanguageandthe dressandtheattitudewherewe lived–andyetnobodyhaddone asongaboutit,”Lovesaid. “Surfin’”–maybetheleast well-knownoftheBeachBoys hits–wastheirfirstentryinto thatgenre.Ironically,asthe yearspassed,theguysinthe band,mostofwhomweredecentsurfers,hadlessandless timeintheocean.Everysummerwasspentontour.Evenas songslike“Surfin’Safari”and “Surfin’USA”becameprogressivelybiggerhits,themen singingthemwereprettymuch landlocked.

Marianne Fisher CEO FAMILY PRACTICE &INTERNAL MEDICINE 5511 Does disc degeneration cause back pain?One type of patient that we see frequently in our practice is the one who comes in and says, “I don’t know if you can help me, but my last doctor says that I have degenerative discs and they are causing my back pain, and so nothing can be done.” Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Almost all adults over the age of 40 years will show some evidence of disc degeneration on X-rays. However, the great majority will not have back pain, or if they do, it will come and go or be due to trauma. This should suggest that, although the degenerated discs are a contributing factor in their pain, it is not the cause of their pain. Many persons who have been told from spinal X-rays that they have “degenerated discs” in their back have suffered needlessly if they were also told that there was not a good way to treat the problem, and they should just “modify their life and live with it.” They should instead explore all treatment options. With age, almost all discs will degenerate. However, from a variety of factors such as previous injury, genetics and other as yet unknown factors, some discs begin to degenerate at an early age. The spinal discs are the soft cartilage pads that occupy the space between the vertebra and spinal bones. It is the disc that is capable of compressing and bending allowing the joints of the spine to move. Without discs, the spine would be a rigid column of bones unable to bend. When a disc begins to degenerate, it allows the joint to move improperly causing pinching of one part of the joint. The term used for this painful joint pinching is “joint impingement.” As impingement is the source of the pain, and not the degenerative disc, treatment which corrects the “impingement” will often totally relieve the pain associated with disc degeneration. Chiropractic manipulation has proven to be a good method of correction of the impingement associated with disc degeneration. In a large study of chronic back pain patients at the Department of Orthopedics at University Hospital in Saskatchewan, Canada, researchers found that chiropractic manipulation was very effective in relieving back pain in over 80 percent of those involved in the study (all of whom had undergone multiple other treatment methods unsuccessfully). More recently, spinal axial decompression has been shown to give significant relief to those suffering from impingement syndromes secondary to disc degeneration. While there are many types of axial decompression on the market, the one with research on this specific subject is the Cox axial decompression used by many chiropractic physicians. It includes flexion distraction manipulation coupled at the same time with axial decompression, and is effective for both the cervical and the lumbar spines. Anyone who has spent time living his or her life with back pain because of disc degeneration should consider chiropractic treatment. It is a proven effective method. Why continue to suffer? Consult with your family doctor of chiropractic medicine today.

To earn the SFHM designation, hospitalists must demonstrate their dedication to quality and process improvement, commitment to organizational teamwork and leadership, as well as lifelong learning and education. Messler is one of 175 hospitalists across the country inducted into the 2011 Society of Hospital Medicine’s class of Senior Fellows. Senior Fellows are the national and local leaders in the growing specialty of hospital medicine. Hospitalists are physicians who take care of hospitalized patients who do not have a physician or whose primary care physician prefers to have an on-site medical team in charge of coordinating care. “Dr. Messler has been on the forefront of hospital improvement processes and initiatives at Morton Plant Hospital since 2005,” said Dr. Donald Pocock, Morton Plant Mease chief medical officer, in a press release. “Because of his dedication to process improvements, our hospital system continues to grow and offer the best quality inpatient care.” Messler was part of the multidisciplinary team for Project BOOST (Better Outcomes for Older Adults through Safe Transitions), to implement evidence-based interventions aimed at improving the discharge process and patient satisfaction. Messler also was part of the multi-disciplinary team on the Morton Plant Turley Diabetes Project to help underinsured diabetic inpatient or emergency room patients have access to follow-up medical care to help manage their disease. Prior to his appointment at Morton Plant, Messler was an assistant professor in Emory University’s Department of Medicine, working in the hospitalist unit at Grady Health System in Atlanta, Ga.Blue Jays plan Fight for a Cure NightDUNEDIN – The Dunedin Blue Jays, in association with the American Cancer Society and Florida Blood Services, will host the second annual Fight for a Cure Night Saturday, Aug. 13, at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

The convergent procedure is nothing like traditional open heart surgery where a patient recovers in the hospital for days with a huge incision down the middle of their chest. “I make a one inch incision in a patient’s abdomen,” said Joseph Diliberto Jr., M.D., chief of cardiac surgery at Largo Medical Center. “Then, I burn scars on the outside surface of the patient’s heart to block the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats].” “As an electro physiologist, I create similar scars but inside the heart, at areas that Dr. Diliberto can’t reach from the outside,” said Dr. John F. Norris, the director of cardiac electrophysiology at Largo Medical Center. “Then at the completion of the procedure, I test the patient’s heart to ensure all the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats] have been eliminated.” The convergent procedure is performed on a beating heart, so hospital recovery time is relatively short. Norris says he often releases the patient in as little as 48 hours after surgery. Since the inception of the convergent procedure program at Largo Medical Center, many Afib patients have stopped taking medications they have been on for years thanks to the excellent results associated with the combined approach.Audiology seminar setCLEARWATER – The Florida Academy of Audiology will host its inaugural hearing health seminar for the public on Friday, Aug. 26, 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort, 1160 Gulf Blvd. The seminar is part of the academy’s three-day annual convention.

Billed as the Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience, ZOSO was formed in 1995 to create the most mesmerizing and accurate portrayal of the biggest band of the 1970’s: Looking ahead Looking ahead Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:’30 Minutes or Less’Genre: Comedy and crime Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Michael Pena Director: Ruben Fleischer Rated: R In the action-comedy “30 Minutes or Less,” Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers and their own tumultuous relationship. ‘Final Destination 5’Genre: Suspense and horror Cast: Emma Bell, Nicholas D’Agosto, Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta and Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood Director: Steven Quale Rated: R “No matter where you run, no matter where you hide ... you can’t cheat death.” In “Final Destination 5,” Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.‘The Help’Genre: Drama Cast: Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer and Chris LowellOpening this week Photo by WILSON WEBBAziz Ansari, left, and Jesse Eisenberg star in Columbia Pictures' "30 Minutes or Less." Director: Tate Taylor Rated: PG-13 Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a No. 1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Academy Award–nominated Viola Davis as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny – three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

OPENING, from page 1BColvin to perform at Capitol Theatre By LEE CLARK ZUMPECLEARWATER – Shawn Colvin takes the stage Friday, Aug. 12, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets range from $47 to $67. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Since 1989, the singer-songwriter has released nine albums and earned nearly a dozen Grammy nominations. She has walked away with three Grammy Awards to date, including a win in 1991 for “Steady On” in the Best Contemporary Folk Album category; and two nods in 1998 for “Sunny Came Home,” in both the Record of the Year and Song of the Year categories. Colvin was born in 1956 in Vermillion, S.D. and relocated to a small-town community – the university town of Carbondale, Ill. – at age 8. By age 10, she found herself drawn to the guitar. She was playing gigs at the University of Illinois at age 15. In Austin, Texas, Colvin formed a western swing band in the late 1970s before moving toPhoto by TRACI GOUDIE/PARADIGM TALENT AGENCYShawn Colvin performs Aug. 12 at Clearwater’s Capitol Theatre.New York to join the Buddy Miller Band. She continued to flutter around the fringes of the spotlight until meeting producer, guitarist, and co-writer John Leventhal. According to a biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, Leventhal inspired Colvin to find her own voice as a songwriter. After honing her skills, Colvin signed to Columbia Records and recorded her debut album, “Steady On,” in 1989. The album earned Colvin her first Grammy Award. Colvin followed up with “Fat City” (1992) and “Cover Girl” (1994). While she had already won critical acclaim, the artist’s first taste of commercial success came in 1996 when she released her breakthrough “A Few Small Repairs” album. The album featured the murder-ballad “Sunny Came Home” which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. The song also won two of Grammy Awards. “Holiday Songs and Lullabies,” released in 1998, was recorded while Colvin was pregnant with her daughter Caledonia. The 2001 release “Whole New You” and the 2004 greatest hits compilation “Polaroids” proved to be Colvin’s final releases through Columbia. For 2004’s “These Four Walls,” Colvin migrated to Nonesuch Records, owned by Warner Music Group. Her debut on the label received praise from fans and critics alike. According to Michael Hill, writing for Nonesuch Records, the first song Colvin completed for “These Four Walls” was “Summer Dress.” The song “opens with Colvin singing over the austere strum of a lone acoustic guitar, then builds into a lilting folk-rock arrangement.” Colvin’s inspired performance exhibits both self-assurance and vulnerability. The album highlights shared experiences and universal epiphanies, connecting with listeners in a way that feels familiar and confidential. “I’ve been doing this a long time,” Colvin said on the Nonesuch Records website when the album was first released. “It’s great to feel like I’m doing my best work now.” Colvin’s most recent release, 2009’s “Shawn Colvin Live,” was recorded in 2008 during a special three-night solo engagement at Yoshi’s, a well-known San Francisco jazz club. The collection showcases 12 songs written or co-written by Colvin, as well as covers of songs by other artists. Listeners will find covers of Robbie Robertson’s “Twilight” and Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” as well as a version of Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place.” The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. The Capitol Theatre provides the perfect setting for a Colvin concert. This singer-songwriter is at heart a storyteller, and the intimate and comfortable theater offers a suitable atmosphere in which her lyrics can truly resonate.
