The proposed ordinance, filed by developer Park 104 LLC, would have allowed a land use change from residential low medium back to commercial general and a zoning switch from residential planned development-10 to preservation at the location known as the Jesses Landing site. There would have been no land-use restrictions. The FLUM was originally amended in 2003 from commercial general to residential low medium to accommodate a proposed 66-unit townhome development. However, that project never materialized and the site was changed back to commercial general in 2008 to accommodate another proposal for a small hotel, restaurant and upscale retail. The most recent change was contingent on the developer working out an agreement with Home Depot to grant public access to 104th Lane, a private roadway that runs beside the east side of the home improvement store and is owned by the retailer.Initial effort turned down by City Council but negotiations continue Veterans honored U.S. military veterans were honored last week in a number of ceremonies held around the area.

See WAWA, page 4ALocal ban on pain clinics continues By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Officials say it is a problem out of control. Prescription medications now are the street drug of choice in some states and fingers are pointing at Florida. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Florida doctors and pharmacies purchased 1.1 billion oxycodone pills in the past two years. Florida is known as the OxyExpress, and officials say Tampa is the hub for the pill mills. Oxycodone addiction is the problem that heroin was in the 1970s. The number of crack babies born in the United States these days pales in comparison to the growing number of those born by mothers addicted to prescription drugs. The situation is alarming in Pinellas County, where the number of drug-addicted newborns increased by almost 600 percent since 2005. The county now is No. 1 in the state for its high number of infants born to women addicted to prescription drugs. After listening to a report on the situation from Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services, county commissioners agreed unanimously Nov. 8 to extend the countywide moratorium on pain clinics until 60 days after the conclusion of the state legislative session set to begin in January. Burns said deaths from accidental overdoses of prescription drugs have outpaced those from heroin in the 1970s and crack cocaine in the 1980s. Drug deaths outnumbered traffic fatalities in the United States in 2009, killing 37,485 people. Statewide, the Florida Medical Examiners Commission reported an 8.9 percent increase in deaths caused by prescription drugs from 2009 to 2010. Pinellas County has its own noteworthy numbers. In 2010, 249 people died as the result of prescription drug use, up from 218 in 2009. In comparison, only 17 died from illicit drugs in 2010 and 19 in 2009. From January to October of this year, Pinellas County emergency medical services received 2,055 reports of overdoses from prescription drugs. The problem is having a big effect on the countys youth. From December 2010 to September 2011, 229 children were removed from their home due to prescription drug abuse. From July 2010 to June 2011, 1,507 individuals were treated for prescription drugs in Pinellas and Pasco counties, according to Central Florida Behavioral Health Data. Seventy-one of those individuals were children and 1,157 of 1,507 were treated for addictions to See MORATORIUM, page 4A Suncoast Dixie Jazz event planned this weekend at Sand KeyThe 21st annual event will take place Friday through Sunday ...

New Years Weekend Fleeing man runs over deputys footCLEARWATER Deputies arrested a Tampa man Nov. 10 after he struck a deputy with his vehicle while fleeing from a traffic stop for a seat belt violation. Joshua B. Jackson, 27, was charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license. He also received several traffic citations. Jackson told deputies he was recently released from Florida State Prison on early inmate release status. He said he ran from deputies because he knew his license was suspended and he didnt want to go back to prison. According to deputies, the incident started about 3 p.m. when they stopped Jackson at the intersection of Ulmerton Road and 38th Street North for not wearing a seatbelt. When Deputy Jose Camacho, 31, approached Jackson, who was operating a 2009 Dodge Charger, Jackson took off. He pulled his vehicle into Camacho and ran over his foot. Deputies pursued Jackson and employed the Precision Immobilization Technique in the area of Rocky Point and the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Jackson was taken into custody without further incident. Camacho, employed with the Sheriffs Office since 1999, was not injured.Armed robbery suspect lands in jailOLDSMAR Pinellas County sheriffs detectives arrested an Oldsmar man suspected of robbing two local businesses at his home Nov. 10. Christopher B. Davis, 20, 3640 Meriden Ave., was charged with three counts of armed robbery. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater where bond was set at $150,000. Davis is accused of the Oct. 25 robbery of the Auto Zone, 3698 Tampa Road, and the Nov. 10 robbery of Chick-fil-A, 3740 Tampa Road, both in Oldsmar. According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 5:30 a.m. a Chick-fil-A employee arrived at work and opened the back door to the restaurant with his key. He noticed that the door did not immediately close. When he turned around the suspect was standing directly behind him, holding a white handgun, described as an automatic in his right hand, and a knife in his left hand. The robber demanded money and the employee complied. The suspect then fled the area on foot. Using the security video and tips from the public, detectives began to look for a suspect Davis, who has allegedly confessed to the robbery. Detectives also were able to recover an undisclosed amount of money that was taken. After the arrest, detectives linked Davis to the Auto Zone robbery. In that case Davis robbed an Auto Zone employee at gunpoint in the parking lot at around 7 a.m. Davis was positively identified and allegedly confessed to committing the second robbery.Largo man jailed for unlawful sexLARGO A Largo man is in the Pinellas County Jail, charged with one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor. Andre N. Vea, 28, is accused of engaging in sexual activity with a 17-year-old female. According to Pinellas County sheriffs detectives, they were called to the victims residence on Nov. 5 by patrol deputies investigating allegations the teenager had been engaged in sexual activities with the accused since August. The victim told detectives at first the relationship with the suspect was as friends. However, eventually the relationship became sexual. During this time, she stated they were using prescription drugs together. Deputies learned about the relationship after the victim began stealing from her mother to support her addiction. Through their investigation, deputies developed probable cause to arrest Andre Vea, aka, Tony Vea. Vea was arrested at his Largo home on Deborah Lane on Nov. 8. He is being held without bail for violation of parole for three prior convictions of theft charges as well as unlawful sexual activity of a minor. Detectives believe the suspect may have other victims of similar crimes that have not been reported. They are asking anyone with information about the suspect to contact Detective Mark Kolenda of the Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6132, Police beat Police beatMcGrady swears in Gualtieri as Pinellas County sheriffCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri took the official oath of office Nov. 9 from Sixth Circuit Chief Judge J. Thomas McGrady at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Gualtieri, 50, as sheriff Oct. 7 after Jim Coats announced his Nov. 7 retirement. Coats passed the reins to Gualtieri at midnight Nov. 7. Gualtieri (pronounced Gwal-terry ) began his career with the sheriffs office as a detention deputy at the Pinellas County Jail in 1982. He was certified as a law enforcement officer and joined the Dunedin Police Department in 1983. He rejoined the sheriffs office as a deputy sheriff in 1984. He worked in various divisions during the next 15 years, including the Investigative Operations Bureau. Gualtieri spent many years working narcotics investigations, where he was recognized as an expert, before leaving the agency to pursue a law degree. He graduated from Stetson College of Law in 2002 and joined the Tampa law firm of Ford & Harrison LLP in private practice. Coats asked Gualtieri to return to the sheriffs office as General Counsel in 2006. In 2008, Coats appointed Gualtieri chief deputy and second in command. As chief deputy, Gualtieri managed the day-to-day operations at the sheriffs office, and the agencys $220 million budget. Most recently Gualtieri has been directing the operation of Pinellas Safe Harbor, a jail diversion program and the countys largest shelter for the homeless. He is also involved with the Sheriffs Police Athletic League and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. I am deeply honored and humbled to have this opportunity, Gualtieri said in a press release. As Sheriff, I will continue serving the citizens of Pinellas County to ensure we provide quality and cost efficient law enforcement services. Gualtieri will serve until January 2013, when the winner of the November 2012 election for sheriff takes office. Gualtieri is also an announced Republican candidate in the 2012 race for sheriff. Tim Ingold and Everett Rice also announced their intentions to run for sheriff as Republicans. Scott P. Swope and Randy Heine are in the race as Democratic candidates. Greg Pound is running on the Constitutional Party of Florida ticket.Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICESixth Circuit Chief Judge J.

Susan Cobb and Denny Gibb dont necessarily consider themselves superstitious, yet the number 11, in its own eerie way, made its presence felt once they made the decision to wed. In an impromptu, on-the-beach, shoes-optional, no-invitation necessary ceremony, the Seminole couple, surrounded by a group of 50 friends and family, tied the knot on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at 11th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach. Even the length of the service, led by a friend of Susans, inexplicably timed out to exactly 11 minutes at which point, three Air Force jets happened to fly overhead. According to the newlyweds, they made no conscious effort to choose any particular day as being more auspicious than another on which to get hitched. A string of coincidences involving the number 11 began popping up soon after they decided to wed. We knew we wanted to get married before the end of the year, said Denny, 50, eventually settling on 11 for the date, time and location because as Susan jokes, Its a date you dont forget, and a lot of friends are getting older. For instance, not long ago, Denny, as he often does, came home bearing a dozen roses, but this time, there were only 11 in the bunch as one had apparently gone missing while in transit. When the couple went to the courthouse to obtain their marriage license, they arrived at the building at 1:11 in the afternoon, got in line and grabbed a number, which turned out to be (surprise) 11. In numerology, its a strong number, Susan said, but for her, when it comes to being a couple, she likes the fact the numbers stand side by side and add up to two. The couple who rent an airy, spacious house in Seminole with an expanse of gleaming white tile floor, (we just had it cleaned for the wedding, confesses Susan), met three years ago at a local bar and embarked first on a platonic friendship that eventually evolved and progressed. We do a lot together, and were always together, said Denny. Susan, 48, a sunny blonde who laughs easily and works in a real estate office had been single for almost (you guessed it!) 11 years and has two grown daughters who live out of state and four grandchildren. Denny, originally from Pennsylvania, works for a construction company in Pinellas Park, is a divorced father with two sons, ages 22 and 15. In keeping with the couples wish to have a froufrou free wedding without the usual trappings, the festivities were nonetheless full blown. My girlfriends came together and totally catered to us all throughout the day ... people pitched in, brought hors doeuvres, and our gathering of friends and family was so incredibly beautiful, Susan said. Symbolism and numerology aside, the couple is optimistic about their future together. Hes still my best friend. This time its gonna stick, laughs Susan.Photo by MAUREEN DURBECKSusan Cobb and Denny Gibb celebrate their wedding on 11-11-11 at 11 a.m. on 11th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach.
4A SEB Beacon, November 17, 2011Since that project also fell through, the agreement for access to 104th Lane became a moot point. Mitchell Rice, developer of the proposed project, said the access easement issue with Home Depot is in the works and should be complete soon. Ive spent the better part of the last six months to gain that easement, Rice said. Theres support for this (from Home Depot). Outside counsel has been engaged to complete this agreement to have the access to 104th Lane. Meantime, Todd Pressman, a consultant for the developers interests, said the city and Park 104/WaWa arent too far apart in concept. We feel like were 95 percent in agreement with the agreement from 2008, said Pressman. Were seeking to bring it back (for approval) to commercial general with restrictions. Had the Nov. 8 proposal passed, Park 104 would have had full access to the tract without restrictions, which call for the construction of a hotel, restaurant and retail. In my opinion, they (WaWa and Park 104 LLC) are trying to work the system, said Sarah Lopez of St. Petersburg, who owns a business in the area. You will grant them whatever theywant to do by approving this agreement. I humbly request you deny this. Also, Lopez added, Saying you have an agreement with Home Depot is not having an agreement with Home Depot. Diane Elliott, who lives in the condominiums at 104th Lane and 70th Avenue, expressed concern over additional traffic on 104th Lane. That private road has become much less private (since 2008), she said. People basically use it as a short cut. Pressman said WaWa would spare no expense at creating a safer traffic pattern, both on Park Boulevard and 104th Lane. WaWa will go to whatever expense is necessary to meet the requirements of a traffic engineer, he said. It will be much better than it is now. Councilor Patricia Plantamura expressed concerns over passing the proposal because this is nebulous and wide open without land-use restrictions. Councilor Bob Matthews questioned the need for another gas station in the city. We already have two service stations sitting empty in our city, said Matthews, and I have a big problem adding more. Hess came along because it was part of Home Depot. City Manager Frank Edmunds said the WaWa/Park 104 group will now need to negotiate something within the direction of the City Council mandate before a development agreement can be worked out. The plan also will need Developmental Review Board approval before the City Council can consider it. If the DRB decides the project falls within the definitions of the citys comprehensive plan, it will then go to the City Council for a possible approval. However, Edmunds said the site plan, as it exists currently conflicts with the citys architectural standards. To change that, Edmunds said, the gas pumps would have to be located behind the food store on the back of the building. In other action, councilors: Adopted on second reading a development agreement with Frain Enterprises Inc. and Outer Ring LLC for the construction of 20 homes on a 5acre tract at 9075 82nd Ave. Amended the amount to be spent on the Recreation Center painting, waterproofing and envelope project. Reduced the amount from $253,500 to $175,000 by deleting construction of a proposed exterior canopy along the north sidewalk. After further analysis, its my opinion (the canopy) is just not a good value, Edmunds said. It would actually detract from the color were painting. There are other architectural designs we can explore.

Wolbert, who passed away a year ago, is being honored with a painting showing library shelves with books, done by local muralist Gray Wise, and positioned at the library entry. The artwork is titled Exceptional Friends Library, and was dedicated at an event held at the library on Nov. 8, hosted by Friends of the Library. Painted as titles on the books are names of the librarys life members, whose volunteer service and financial contributions help support the librarys operations. Future life members of the Friends group ($100 for individuals, $150 for couples and families) can choose a book on the mural for inscription. The painting was commissioned by the Friends of the Library. John Wolberts contributions to the library came largely through his participation and support of the Friends organization. Marilyn Hafling, president of the Friends organization, said the painting celebrates John Wolberts life, and the contributions of new and old friends of the library. I love the painting. Its beachy, and gets the idea down, Hafling said. And people like having their name on the wall. Linda Wolbert, Johns wife, business partner and loving life partner, said the painting and Exceptional Friends Library idea is a suitable and moving tribute to John, and his passion for the library. John never wanted the spotlight, and this project is so special, she said. John would absolutely love it, and it fills my heart with joy.Annual Sanding Ovations kicks off at Treasure IslandTREASURE ISLAND All it takes is a pile of sand, some buckets of water, and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece at least for eight master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the third annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Professional Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival Nov. 17-20. The top four sculptures and a peoples choice sculpture will be awarded more than $10,000 in cash prizes. The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the world-class level is the big appeal, supplemented by the giant sponsor sculpture created by Treasure Islands Meredith Corson of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors. A beach food court, an arts and crafts marketplace and three days of live music add to the festive event. After the sun sets, the lights go up, as Sanding Ovations is proud to welcome country singer and American Idol finalist Danny Gokey to the stage Friday, Nov. 18, at 8:30 p.m. Opening for Gokey at 6:30 p.m. will be Sunza Beaches and the Roadhouse Rockers. Saturday, the biggest day of the event, includes fireworks on the beach at 9 p.m., the Masters Cup awards presentation and an all-out party starting at 3 p.m. The music lineup includes the electro-acoustic blends of country, folk and classic pop from Have Gun, Will Travel, southern rockers Mojo Gurus, and The Rocket Man Show starring Rus Anderson as Elton John. The Sanding Ovations Jazz Beach Brunch is set for Sunday, followed by Florida folk with WMNFs Pete Gallagher, and wrap up the day with a Sunday Bluesday Afternoon featuring Sarasota Slim and the Charlie Morris Band. Produced by the City of Treasure Island Parks and Recreation Department and sponsored in part by LandShark Lager, Sanding Ovations is free and open to the public. Parking on the beach at 112th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard is available for $10. Beach Brunch tickets are available at 547-4575, ext. 237.

The restaurant/bar, which is due to open in mid-December at the former Shells Seafood Restaurant and CiCis Pizza site at 17855 Gulf Blvd., will feature indoor and outdoor dining on the Intracoastal in a setting of tropical ambiance. Boat docks will be available. One dock is already built, and more are planned. The concept will feature seafood fresh from the boats next door. Well serve only whats available, said Matt Loder Sr., whose family owns and runs the Crabby Bills restaurants. Loders son, Matt Jr., will manage the new facility, assisted by other Loder family members. Though the Crabby Bills connection will be there, diners will get something totally different, Loder promised. This is a project on my own, aside from the family business, he said. Tropical will be the message, in the setting, and food preparation. Well feature sauces, of a tropical nature, and do a lot of things like duck and prime beef that people would not expect to see on a Crabby Bills menu, Loder said. The Seabreeze Island Grill will be casual, yet something special, with great waterfront views inside or out, said Loder. Where Crabby Bills specializes in seafood simply prepared, Loder said the Seabreeze entrees would be more tropical in preparation, with an emphasis on sauces. The goal is to give each restaurant its own identity, Loder said, so guests will patronize both, and expect a different experience.Restaurant opening cancels park expansionThe new restaurants opening will boost the tax base of Redington Shores, but also cancels out a plan for the town to purchase the property and extend neighboring Del Bello Park. The Town Commission had discussed seeking a wetlands restoration grant to pay for the property purchase and park expansion. At the time, building official Steve Andrews had said the property owner was agreeable to selling the restaurant building, which would have been demolished, and the parking lot to the town for the park project. Mayor Bert Adams said the town is delighted to have a new, upscale addition to the towns growing restaurant and entertainment scene. I think it is tremendous, he said. This is a really nice restaurant that will go well in town. Asked about giving up the expansion of Del Bello Park, Adams said the park extension would have been nice, but the restaurant keeps (the property) on the tax rolls, where the park wouldnt.Redington Shores park to get upgrades By WAYNE AYERSREDINGTON SHORES Del Bello Park is getting a spruce up in advance of the winter tourist season, parks commissioner Tom Kapper announced at the Nov. 9 commission meeting. Weeds and trees are being cleaned up, and new mulch is being put around all the plantings, Kapper said. Pavers are being pressure-washed and sealed. The improvements are coming just as a new restaurant tenant has been announced for the property adjacent to the park. That site has been vacant since CiCis Pizza closed, and the town was seeking grant money to acquire the property, demolish the restaurant building and extend the park. That will not happen now. The building is being renovated to house Seabreeze Island Grill, a creation of Matt Loder Sr., whose family owns the popular Crabby Bills restaurants. Kapper said following the meeting he was not disappointed to see the park extension idea dropped. I never was for (the expansion), he said. Kapper said the town has too many parks now to take care of, considering all the budget cuts.Speed limits loweredThe commission took action to lower the speed limit on roadways around Spitzer Park from 25 mph to 15 mph. Affected are all of 176th Avenue, from First Street East to Sterling Terrace, and all of 176th Terrace Drive, from First Street East to Sterling Terrace. Mayor Bert Adams said after the meeting that lowering the speed limit is being done to protect children playing in the park and adjacent areas. We have a lot of kids around Spitzer Park, he said, and we dont want them killed. An ordinance changing the speed limit passed unanimously. Vice Mayor John Branch and Commissioner Casey Wojcik were absent from the meeting.Holiday events announcedThe towns Christmas holiday season events begin with a tree lighting Dec. 4, 5-7 p.m., in Del Bello Park. The annual boat parade (Redington Beaches and Indian Shores) will take place on Saturday, Dec. 10, followed by the Santa parade a week later on Dec. 17. Getting some sun Photo by JIM LAYFIELDA juvenile gopher turtle, approximately 5 inches in diameter, takes in some rays at Walsingham Park Nov. 13. The sand spur in his neck was removed after the photo was taken. oxycodone. County commissioners put a moratorium on new pain management clinics in place June 7, 2010, or until the state implemented a program to monitor prescription drugs. Since that time, the state has passed laws that Burns said were good steps, including funding the database to track clinics registered with the state and prescription drug use. In addition, clinics can no longer dispense drugs onsite. But the state needs to do more, Burns said. A loophole in the system that focuses monitoring on clinics by the title of the doctor or the practice versus the activity drug dealing needs to be closed. He explained that the problem is not pain management clinics, but high prescribing. Were trying to prevent the pill mills, he said. He presented a list of critical needs the state still needs to address, including recognition of the impact and excessive cost of prescription drug abuse addictions and pill mills. Burns reported some success in countywide efforts to combat the problem thanks to the 2010 ordinance and moratorium. Twelve locations were closed, three citations issued and three warnings. Seven locations were advised not to open as a pain clinic. However, the county needs to do more at least until the state can implement changes to its laws and programs that local officials say are critical to combating the problem. Burns said the Sheriffs Office had been working very hard on the problem, but enforcement continued to be a problem. He advocated proposed amendments to the countys ordinance to help law enforcement, as well as county staff. One change is the title, which is now Prescription Management. The old title was High Prescribing Clinics. References to pain management were amended to say high prescribing health care providers. The clinics still are required to submit an application to do business in the county. The annual fee is $1,500 and the permit is $250. Hours of operation were extended to include Sundays. High prescribing clinics can only operate between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. The clinic must provide ample parking and it must not generate traffic that would interfere with the normal flow. High prescribing clinics must educate their patients on the dangers and proper use of prescription drugs. They must ask female patients if they are pregnant prior to prescribing medications and provide education about the danger of taking drugs while pregnant. Clinics are required to do a patient assessment prior to prescribing to determine possible addiction and mental health needs. Commissioners unanimously approved all amendments except the one to rescind the moratorium on new pain clinics. After hearing the latest information on the problem and staffs perspective on the need for more from the state, Commissioner Karen Seel suggested continuing the moratorium currently in place. This is a horrible, horrible problem, she said. It is an epidemic among our newborns.

Called the Academies of Pinellas, the plan was made possible through apa rtnership with the Ford Motor Company Fund, Workforce Florida, Pinellas County Schools, the Pinellas County Parent Teacher Association, the Pinellas Education Foundation and FACTE (Florida Association for Career and Technical Education). The goals of the Academies of Pinellas are to: Consolidate the different academies (Centers of Excellence, career academies, themed academies, Career and Professional Education CAPE academies) under the Academies of Pinellas. Make learning relevant more learning through application. Promote academies and certifications that address community and workforce needs. Increase the number of academies in all high schools. Make schools smaller as a result of creating multiple academies in each high school. Integrate core subjects into themed programs. Operate most academies with an open enrollment process. Respect the dignity of all work and educational pursuits. Have involved community and business advisory boards supporting academies. According to a county press release, statistics show that students not only succeed when they are enrolled in coursework thats relevant, but they are better prepared for life after high school whether their choice is to attend college, enter the workforce or obtain further technical training. I applaud our school board members for understanding the urgency of challenging our students, which the Academies of Pinellas certainly will do, said Pinellas Schools interim superintendent John Stewart. I further applaud everyone, school district personnel and community partners alike, who worked hard to bring this opportunity to fruition. Academies of Pinellas will incorporate much of what has already proven successful with the Centers of Excellence and expand on that formula to broaden opportunities for high school students. The plan will ensure that every region of the county offers the most successful programs to give students a greater variety of choices based on their interests and aptitudes in addition to improving the graduation rate. We know that students in career academies academically out-perform students in the general school population across the state of Florida, said Gerry Hogan, co-chair of the Career Education Board. With funding from Ford and under the leadership of administrators from Pinellas County Schools and school board members, Pinellas County business and civic leaders, our goal is for 50 percent of students to be enrolled in Career Academies by 2017. This experience will translate to higher graduation rates, fewer absences, and higher FCAT scores. The support of various community and civic groups such as the numerous area chambers and rotary clubs, the Urban League and the St. Petersburg NAACP among others have not only been crucial to the success of the plans adoption but will continue to be vital in its implementation.NotebookGearheart, Wood lead SVEC teamSEMINOLE Led by Justin Gearheart and Marshal Wood, Seminole Vocational Education Center was the winner Nov. 8 in the Florida FFA Environmental Science and Natural Resources Career Development Event at the UF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center in Live Oak.

The students, staff and families of our School of Distinction schools should be very proud of their efforts and the impact theyre making on the hunger cause, said Schools Fight Hunger Founder, Tim Sullivan.

Make no mistake: He is NOT playing. His efforts are deadly serious attempts to rid himself of his painful body noose of fishing line and maddening cleaner fish called remoras.Have you ever gotten sand in your eyes? Ever been stuck with an invisible cactus spine? Has a tiny tickly hair ever weaved itself around your eyelashes such that, despite your best efforts, you just couldnt get it off? If you have long hair, have you ever endured the irritating tickle of an undetectable strand of hair dancing on your cheek or against the back of your upper arm? Such tickling begins innocently. But when it becomes unrelenting, such tickling escalates to taunting and finally to pure torment. Torment is the life of the little baby bottlenose dolphin, Vidalia, who has been entangled in fishing line since July. Fishing line is wrapped around his body, dorsal fin and mouth. Line stretches tautly across his mouth like a bridle on a horse, ascending diagonally to his dorsal fin. Every time the little fella rises to breathe, the fishing line rubs back and forth across his left eye and the right side of his neck. His forward swimming movements tug the fishing line backwards across his dorsal fin like a saw cutting wood. Torturously, each time Vidalia comes to the surface for air, the line cuts into the fin of his body a little more each time. It is theoretically possible to catch, cut free, and release the entangled calf. But such a rescue is heartbreakingly complicated, a maritime crapshoot of finding a needle in a haystack. A successful rescue requires that several essential pieces come together simultaneously. Piece one, you need federal permission. We have that. Piece two, you need people experienced in the dangerous mission of netting the entangled dolphin, cutting off the fishing line, and setting the dolphin free. Fortunately, we also have them. Unfortunately, it takes 3 dozen of them in multiple boats, and theyre scattered across the state of Florida. In other words, the rescue must be planned ahead of time rather than launched spontaneously when the entangled calf is sighted at sea. Consequently, piece three is the ability to locate the entangled dolphin when it is scheduled to be rescued. The mother of the entangled calf is a dolphin we call Valiant. Weve seen Valiant throughout our study. But like the other dolphins, Valiant doesnt stay in the study area; she travels through it. Weve not equipped her with a satellite tag so theres no telling exactly where she and the baby are at any particular time. However, weve mapped her sighting locations from the last several years. These broadly reveal where she is more likely rather than less likely to be at sea. You cant rescue a dolphin that you cant find. Valiant and her little entangled calf Vidalia recently returned to our area. Sometimes Vidalia appears to be playful, jumping and zinging around. Make no mistake: He is NOT playing. His efforts are deadly serious attempts to rid himself of his painful body noose of fishing line and maddening cleaner fish called remoras. At other times, Vidalia appears to be too weak to continue his struggle against his unyielding noose of fishing line. During several sightings, he tried repeatedly to clamber up on his mothers back for support as if too weary to swim. Such behavior is typical of baby monkeys but certainly not of baby dolphins. And baby he is: still young enough to be living solely on his mothers milk. Piece four, is calm weather. Windy days make rescues impossible, puts the rescue team at too great a risk, or both. Piece five, is shallow water. The rescue is most easily done in water that is less than hip deep. It can sometimes be accomplished in deeper water, however. To date, weve had several but not all of the pieces come together at the same time. The frustration is indescribable. The good citizens of Gulf Boulevard can help us keep track of Valiant and her little entangled Vidalia. If youre on the Intracoastal Waterway or along the Gulf coastline from Fort De Soto northward, keep a sharp lookout for them. The calf should be easy to recognize by the fist-sized wad of fishing line flopping off either side of its body and by the slice at the base of the leading edge of his dorsal fin, which curls the fin back. Youre legally bound to stay 50 yards away to avoiding harassing them. Please do NOT try to take their pictures. However, if youre so inclined, please take note of the date, time and latitude/longitude location of any sightings and email the information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you see a stranded dolphin in state waters, call the Florida Marine Mammal Stranding Hotline at 1888-404-FWCC (3922). Call 1-877-942-5343, 24hour Stranding Network hotline, to report a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico.

A new movie about longtime FBI director J. Edgar Hoover has just been released. Its been getting mixed reviews, but I want to see it. Hoover was my first boss. I searched fingerprints for him for six months, back in 1948. I cant say I ever had lunch with Mr. Hoover or otherwise hob-nobbed with him. I was a 17-year-old clerk in the Bureaus Identification Division, at 2nd and D Streets SW in Washington, D.C. Hoovers roost was in the Department of Justice headquarters a mile or two away. I was present a few times when Hoover addressed graduates of the FBIs National Academy. On such occasions a sizeable number of employees would be herded into an auditorium to make sure Hoover had a respectable-sized audience. I remember him as a medium-height muscular man who spoke rapidly and clearly. (As a child Hoover stuttered. In school he remedied this by joining a debate club and becoming one of its most valuable members.) My tenure with the FBI took place before any of the nasty rumors had begun to circulate. We all knew that Hoover had a very close relationship with his assistant, Clyde Tolson. We knew they lived together, lunched together, and were seldom apart for long. But tales of Hoovers cross-dressing and painting Tolsons toenails were not yet part of Washingtons cocktail chatter. When reading the many accounts of Hoovers alleged transvestite appearances, its wise to remember how many people loathed him and would gladly have made up false stories about him. I cant say I remember Hoovers being idolized by his employees, but the level of respect and awe went mighty deep. An accepted truth among his troops was that, when Hoover submitted his yearly budget to Congress, it was always approved, untouched, because of the esteem Americans felt for Hoover and the FBI. We now know that the real reason is that many House members were terrified (and rightly so) that Hoover might release contents of the dossiers he kept on many government officials. Hoover held on to his post for 48 years, at least partly because no sitting President was willing to risk firing him. Hoover was the ultimate blackmailer, both potentially and actually. Was he therefore a monster? Some would say so, but others remember Hoover as a hero, Americas foremost racket-buster and anti-communist. The new movie recalls Hoovers role in the 1919 Palmer raids, a series of arrests of persons suspected of being communists or anarchists. Due process was a minor concern of Hoover and his prosecutors, as well as most Americans in that era, when Bolsheviks were seen lurking in every corner. In his later years Hoover and the Bureau were known for their ultra-vigilance in spotlighting persons whose behavior was immoral, even if not downright illegal. Hoover had a special dislike for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in no small part because of Kings weakness for women who were not his wife. The FBIs fame and reputation blossomed during the Roaring Twenties, when John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and other crooks were knocking over banks and creating headlines. For a time they were so successful that Hoover feared he might lose his job for failing to defeat the hoodlums. At that point he rallied his forces and took the offensive. Hoover triumphed, and from then on his agents now known as G-men could do no wrong. The new movie takes a good look at Hoovers mother, played by British actress Judy Dench. With a double-dyed harpy like her forming her sons early character and then dominating much of his adult life, its no wonder that Hoover ended up as a sexually troubled man with enough neuroses to keep a psychiatrist entranced for decades. His mother is quoted as saying shed rather have a dead son than one who was homosexual. If so, the sleek and handsome Clyde Tolson surely must have given Mrs. Hoover pause when he charmed her son. However, other writers have said that Hoover had a good relationship with his mother, and showed her many kindnesses. He lived with his mother until her death in 1938. Although Hoover was not comfortable with women, he loved dogs, and had seven of them during his lifetime. Today the FBI headquarters in Washington still bears the name of J. Edgar Hoover, despite the fact that many persons have asked that the building be re-named for someone else, preferably a Justice Department servant who did not cling to power by spying on his enemies (real or suspected), defaming them, and occasionally blackmailing them. The renaming campaign has not prospered. In death, as in his lifetime, Hoover is not easily disposed of.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun.

Edgar Hoover hero or monster?Apply lesson to boat paradesEditor: In light of seeing two different Christmas boat parades scheduled in the past two issues of the Beach Beacon, I thought I better write something for the group that heads the boat parade that runs on the three-night schedule to ponder. I think the other two are separate parades done by other beach towns. All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum is a dynamite poem that every public leader should read. Right now, Im particularly alluding to the group who heads the Christmas Boat Parade. The lines from the book Im specifically referring to are: These are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. My husband and I are one of those nearly natives, who moved to Pinellas County, from other states with the influx of 1959. After college (in Tallahassee and Western Carolina) and a 20-year stint in Pasco, we returned home to the Redington Beaches in 1998, where we bought a condo on the Intracoastal in 1999. Before that, we use to drive down here from Hudson to watch the boat parade with my in-laws. That was especially hard on the boys the next day being tired for school. We love the Christmas boat parade. Other than the Independence Day fireworks, the boat parade is the second of the two family events I host each year. However, after the last several years the diminishing boat parade got me thinking. ... The boat parade is always scheduled the same nights each year, with the north part of Madeira Beach from the bridge, Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Shores, and Indian Shores up to the Pub always getting Sunday night. Heres the thing. After the boats and human participants have done the parade on Friday and Saturday, they are kind of wiped out and some drop out of Sunday night. I can think of several valid reasons: Its a school night, a work night; they have to be up late cleaning off the boats, getting the kids to bed, etc. We do appreciate the participants who hang in there for all three nights. Its a beautiful sight for all of us to see. Now we return to All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten. One of the most important things kindergartners learn is to take turns. Im speaking from experience as an early childhood teacher of 30 years and as a mother of two boys; I think its time the towns started to take turns. Lets start going on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, rotating schedule. I loved it the year when we got rained out, and the Redington Beaches got to have it the following Saturday night. That just might have been the best one ever! After all, as any kindergartner knows, its only fair to take turns. Nancy Clark Bloomer Redington ShoresReader disagrees with editorialEditor: I take issue with the editorial published by your paper on Nov. 10 headlined Telltale signs of instability. I so totally agree that the mayor of Madeira Beach and commissioners do indeed bear the responsibility of the turmoil in the government because no one else will step to the plate and bear the burden of accountability. The mayor and commissioners are doing exactly what the citizens of Madeira Beach have voted them to do. The citizens have asked them to clean house at city hall, clean up a budget, cut unnecessary expenditures, eliminate unnecessary overpriced jobs and bring this city into a balanced budget with fewer expenses and still maintain all the amenities the city can provide for the taxpayers. The attack on Madden was totally unfathomable. Madden has accomplished more in the last few weeks than has the former city manager and acting city manager combined. Madden lives in Madeira Beach and has the welfare of the citys government at heart. He did not come out of retirement and take on the awesome task of interim city manager for the money. Madden has logged untold hours and accomplished much over these last few weeks, as published in the last issue of the St. Petersburg Times. If any business is going to be successful, drastic house cleaning measures must be put into place. Much like remodeling a much loved home, it takes time and patience to endure the journey. We, as a city, must remain steadfast in cleaning out the dead weight in our city hall. We have begun the endeavor of growing this great city of ours and I so hope the citizens can bear the bad with the good so that the end result will be a friendly, powerful community that we will all be proud of to live in. Roger Koske Madeira BeachA public health issueEditor: There is a statement in Brian Goffs Nov. 10 article that Indian Rocks Beachs Dec. 13 Commission meeting will take up the possibility of prohibiting smoking on our beaches and in our city parks. This is untrue. I am the commissioner who asked for this to be considered. It is to consider voluntary areas where smokers can be segregated from nonsmokers and would not be enforceable. Many cities and counties across our state have already signed on to this concept. IRB tried the education option a few years ago (remember the pocket ashtrays, disposal units at each access, and cigarette butt counts?) That was a failure. The state allows smoking in both places and we have to follow state law. That being said, both Sarasota and Gulfport have recently adopted no smoking period ordinances saying, sue us. I am sure that is coming: Remember restaurants, airplanes, public conveyances, public buildings and those odd glass enclosures at airports? All places for smokers to congregate and now all nonsmoking period. Please consider a clear explanation of what is really under consideration. This is a public health issue, not a ploy to restrict smokers right to smoke. Commissioner Terry Hamilton-Wollin Indian Rocks BeachRome wasnt built in a dayEditor: I would like to respond to letter writer who thought Gov. Rick Scott made the right move turning down funds for high speed rail and I for one was wrong wanting the project to go on. The writer went on to cite what was happening in California, where their cost now will be three times the original estimate and take 10 years longer. Well, Rome wasnt built in a day. When George W. Bush started the Iraq war his estimate was it would last a few months and cost a few million dollars. After 10 years were still there and the last figure I saw the cost was approaching $800 billion and counting. Not to mention dead, injured and families lives ruined. Bush stated the Iraq oil would pay for the war. Wheres the check? It was the biggest blunder in the history of the United States. I still think Scott also made a big blunder. Dominic Grillo Dunedin Talk about a recipe for disaster. Trying to take the workload off co-workers, I agreed to type some recipes for a holiday section. I dont cook, I said to an editor, showing her a recipe. What does this mean? Youre typing recipes? another editor asked. Yup, Im on boozy burbon balls. The recipes were submitted by our readers, and they were making me hungry. But after an hour of trying to decipher kitchen speak, I was in need of some boozy bourbon balls to get through it. In this business, you never know what hits you. Over the decades Ive been a newsman, Ive had to type everything from happy first birthday briefs to school lunch menus to advertising copy. It goes with the territory if you work at a community newspaper. The average reader may not realize the limitations of newspapers, large and small, particularly in todays trying economic conditions. I would like to think most journalists who have survived the downsizing of newspaper staffs across the country consider ourselves to be fortunate to be in the profession we love, even when we have to explain to an upset reader why the newspaper cant run a photo of people who are badly out of focus. Or why we cant cover a book signing, a church service or a sighting at Halloween of Dracula on the school bus. We do what we can even if we dont think we know what were doing. In the 1980s, when even small communities were saturated with media coverage, I was asked by an editor on the spur of the moment to cover the Florida Citrus Commission in Lakeland. I grimaced. At that time, the only thing I knew about citrus, especially grapefruit, is that you dont want to run over it with a lawn mower. But I had a job to do. The Citrus Commission threw out all types of facts and figures that I knew nothing about. I picked up on the constant reference to the scurrilous Brazilian product but that, in itself, didnt help me understand the gist of the boards discussion. I wrote a story about the commission debating the Brix scale, which is the weight of sugar per volume of solution at a given temperature, or something like that. My editor read the story and decided that that first paragraph needed to be livelier. So he wrote, Florida Citrus commissioners are throwing Brix at each other. That editor never saw a pun he didnt like, but he was the boss. At about that time, I was assigned often to be the man onthe street, the poor guy who must go to the post office and asks people for their opinion of a newsworthy event and snap their pictures. Many people dont want to be bothered by it. When President Reagan was shot, the editor sent me to the post office and told me to be back in an hour or so to meet the afternoon deadline. Sir, whats your reaction to President Reagan being shot? I asked a man leaving the post office. Im not going to answer any hypothetical questions. Its true, sir. The president was shot about an hour ago, I said. I told you. Im not going to answer any hypothetical questions. Fine, I said to myself. I found four other people who gave me an answer, and I rushed back to the newsroom. Got it, I said to the editor. Got what? The man on the street column. Oh, were holding that for tomorrow, Tom. To bury it underneath the crossword puzzle, no doubt. Please dont ask me why we dont do man on the street at Tampa Bay Newspapers. And, as the holiday season approaches, please try to understand that there are only so many pictures of the visitor from the North Pole that we can run in our papers. His elves, too. Has been years, too, since weve done a story on the fortunate pet turkey on Thanksgiving; guess were overdue. I could share dozens of anecdotes about what readers want or dont want from their newspapers. Take columnists. Readers seem to either love or hate a columnist and usually dont mince words when they call to complain about him or her. Cant count how many times I have explained to a reader that I dont tell that liberal so-and-so what to write. My other piece of advice just dont read them often results in click of the phone. All in a days work. Were deluged with emails, faxes and hand-written letters to editor, free samples from the Popcorn Board, requests to judge essay contests, invitations to ceremonies, and queries as to when an announcement is going to appear in the paper. People want copies of obituaries that ran decades ago. Try as we might, we cant meet all our readers needs. But they keep calling, through good times and bad. And I wouldnt want it any other way.Anything but man on the street 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.com Publisher/President: Dan Autrey firstname.lastname@example.org Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli email@example.com Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey firstname.lastname@example.org Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier email@example.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond firstname.lastname@example.orgProduction Manager: David Brown email@example.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter firstname.lastname@example.org Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure email@example.com Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond firstname.lastname@example.org Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd email@example.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl firstname.lastname@example.org Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

The program was launched as a Facebook-enabled philanthropy initiative, which engaged supporters of these charities through its Facebook application. Each day for 100 days, five organizations were profiled on the Facebook page and the one with the most votes at the end of the day was awarded a car. The 400 runners-up each received $1,000. We are huge animal supporters at Autoway Toyota, so we were absolutely thrilled that the SPCA Tampa Bay was chosen to receive this Toyota Sienna, said David Bertoncini, sales manager at Autoway Toyota, in a press release. Its not a rare sight to see our customers car shopping with mans best friend at their side, which we welcome and enjoy. We want to do everything we can to help the SPCA Tampa Bay give animals a brighter life than theyve had. We are honored to be able to take part in this day. In addition to delivering the Sienna to the SPCA Tampa Bay, Autoway Toyota is filling the van with items from the organizations wish list, such as pet food, toys and other supplies. On the day of the event, the community is invited to bring their own furry friends and supply donations to the dealership for the SPCA Tampa Bay, which also will have cats and dogs available for adoption. We are incredibly thankful for Toyotas donation and for the support of Pinellas County residents, said Martha Boden, CEO, SPCA Tampa Bay. In the last five years weve responded to more than 10,000 animal emergency assistance calls, driving over 500,000 miles in Pinellas County with our service vehicles. Winning a new Toyota enables our team to use reliable transportation as we help save lives and return injured animals to their worried owners.SPCA extends Saturday hoursLARGO SPCA Tampa Bay recently expanded its Saturday service hours to the public. The extended hours on the agencys busiest day of the week can help more animals find their forever homes. Being open longer on Saturdays gives families needed time to make the right adoption choice, said Martha Boden, CEO at SPCA Tampa Bay, in a press release. We want to encourage people to seek out SPCA Tampa Bay for all their pet-related needs: adopt a new pet, obtain behavior training, take informative tours or shop at the Pet Boutique. The SPCA management team set the public hours after careful consideration of visitor patterns. Weekday hours also have been changed to open later and allow staff to accommodate visitors who need a little extra help at closing time. According to Boden, the change in hours marks the beginning of new programs for 2012, and a new twist to existing offerings.

The event also will feature food, drink and Celtic craft vendors along with a family-friendly atmosphere. Music has always served as the centerpiece of the festival, attracting both established and emerging acts. This years featured Celtic rock bands will include the ever-popular Seven Nations as well as NeedFire, Lucid Druid and Druid Roots. The event also will feature performances by three Dunedin pipe and drum corps and highland and Irish dancers. There will be food and drink vendors along with Celtic craft vendors. The members of Seven Nations pride themselves on the fact that they are not your fathers Celtic band, as the groups website states. Like the citys annual Highland Games in the spring, the Celtic Festival reflects the rich American and Scottish heritage of Dunedins founding fathers. The festival helps secure and promote its colorful past and reminds residents and visitors alike of its connection to Scotland. In commemoration of its ancestral ties, Dunedin selected Stirling, Scotland, and Summerside, Prince Edward Island as its sister cities.Celtic musicSeven Nations is known for a passionate, tender and rollicking style that encompasses everything from roots and traditional folk to dance and fusion-rock. The band is also famous for a relentless touring schedule, sometimes spending more than 300 days a year on the road. Touring full-time since 1994, Seven Nations has performed in Europe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and virtually every state in the United States. They performed an entire show with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra at the Dublin Irish Festival as well as performing at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, a New Years Eve concert at Scotlands Royal Mile and at the New York City Marathon. The name Seven Nations refers to the seven nations of the Celtic world, now known as Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Gallaecia. In addition to their two sets at the Dunedin Celtic Festival, Seven Nations will perform Friday, Nov. 18, 9 p.m., at Dunedin Brewery, 937 Douglas Ave. Take rock guitars, bass and drums and mix them with soaring bagpipes and reeling Celtic fiddle: Thats Needfire. The band strives to invigorate vintage Celtic music by infusing an adrenalin rush straight out of the heart of rock and roll. We take traditional Celtic melodies and instrumentation and bring them into a modern context, the band writes on its website. We blend multiple styles of music and instruments into a unique style that has made us one of todays most distinctive and original bands. Band members include Brad Madison, Highland bagpipes, uilleann pipes, guitars and melodica; Jacob Frasier, drum kit, percussion and vocals; Magen Miller, fiddle, piano, accordion and vocals; Ed Walewski, bass, mandolin, dulcimer and recorder; and Kevin Hanlon, electric and acoustic guitars and vocals. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Needfire formed in 2004. The bands Long Lonesome Tour in 2010 took them from Florida to California and from Texas to Ontario. Clearwaters own Lucid Druid will bring their self-described eclectic world-fusion music to the festival, headed by two-time world champion bagpiper Adam Quinn. Lucid Druid dates back to 2003. Initially, the band showcased their brand of eclectic Celtic fusion almost exclusively on stage at the Dunedin Brewery. Since the early days, the bands prominence has experienced phenomenal growth and they have earned a devoted following. Lucid Druid frequently serves as a featured act at local and regional music festivals, including the Dunedin Celtic Festival, St. Petersburg FolkFest, Paralounge Drum Festival in Silver Springs, Friday Extra Concert Series in Tampa and the Safety Harbor Concert Series. Quinn is one of five core members of Lucid Druid who seamlessly blend the sounds of bagpipes, guitar, stringed bass, didgeridoo and Scottish snare with a variety of African drums to create a unique, innovative and fresh sound. According to the bands official bio, Quinn has been playing bagpipes and composing music for more than 25 years. Taking advantage of the musical programs offered in Dunedin schools, he studied bagpipes, clarinet and piano performance. He was only 19 when he began a two-year stint as a musician at Tokyo Disneyland in Japan. Later, he was part of a bagpipe trio at Floridas Epcot Center. Lucid Druids lineup of talented musicians includes Quinn on bagpipes, degerpipes, shuttlepipes, didgeridoo, clarinet and piano; Steve Turner on ashikos, djembes, drums, didgeridoos and various percussion; Joe Porter on upright bass and electric bass; Doug White on Scottish snare, drums, roto-tams, bongos and various percussion; and Sebastian Deledda on guitars. In March, Lucid Druid celebrated the release of their CD Cernunnos with a performance at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Druid Roots, relative newcomers to the Celtic music scene, combines the talents of Scottish singer/songwriter James Smith and multi-instrumental Irish Bohemian Daniel Joseph ORyan. Completing the trinity is organic percussionist Joel Jadus MacSweeney. According to the bands Facebook page, the three musicians seek to create an altogether new blend of Celtic, bluegrass and world music. Druid Roots brings to the stage no less than six string guitars, eight string mandolins, Irish whistles, modern Scottish and medieval German bagpipes. The instruments set the tone for Druid Roots traditional and original songs. Admission is free. Parking will cost $15. Coolers, pets, beach umbrellas and pop-up tents will not be permitted in the park. The Celtic Festival is a benefit concert for Dunedins Scottish bands. The festival is promoted, organized, managed and operated by the Dunedin Highland Games and Festival Committee Inc., a nonprofit corporation.

The DescendantsGenre: Drama and comedy Cast: George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Mary Birdsong, Nick Krause and Judy Greer Director: Alexander Payne Rated: R From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscarwinning Sideways, set in Hawaii, The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the familys land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.The LieGenre: Drama Cast: Joshua Leonard, Jess Weixler, Jane Adams, Mark Webber and Gerry Bednob Director: Joshua Leonard Rated: R When they first met, Lonnie and Clover were young idealists, but an unplanned baby forced them to flip the script. Lonnie put his music on hold and got a lousy job. And now Clover is abandoning her activism for an opportunity in the corporate world. Drowning in disappointments, Lonnie decides he needs some time off work to reexamine his life. He calls in sick, but his abusive boss demands he show up or get fired. Lonnie panics and tells a shocking lie to justify his absence and once the lie is out, theres no going back. Now, its only a matter of time before the grenade hes thrown on his life explodes and Lonnie is suddenly pushed to figure out who he is, what he wants, and just maybe, what it means to be a father.TomboyGenre: Foreign Cast: Zoe Heran, Malonn Levana, Jeanne Disson, Sophie Cattani and Mathieu Demy Director: Celine Sciamma Not rated In Tomboy, filmmaker Cline Sciammas second feature, a family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure (Zo Heran) and 6-year-old Jeanne (Malonn Lvana), moves to a new suburban neighborhood during the summer holidays.

At home with her parents (Mathieu Demy and Sophie Cattani) and girlie younger sister, she is Laure: hanging out with her new pals and girlfriend, she is Mikael.

According to the festival director, sponsors and benefactors contribute from $300 to more than $3,000 each, enabling the organization to provide more support to student scholarships and community programs. More importantly, it makes a difference in the lives of aspiring young musicians, Dragon said. For information, call 536-0064 or visit www.jazzclassic.net. JAZZ, from page 4B
