VIEWPOINTSTom GermondPublics right to speak at meetings should be protected, columnist says. ... Page 11A. Plans move ahead at Bay Pines site By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE If all goes as expected, construction workers should soon be turning some dirt on a gated 330-unit apartment complex on the 60-acre site of the former Bay Pines Mobile Home Park. City councilors voted unanimously Feb. 14 to approve on first reading a development agreement between the city, KE Bay Pines Properties LLC and Contravest Management Co. for the start of the $17 million project at the corner of Bay Pines Boulevard and 101st Way. KE Bay Pines Properties is leasing the apartment site to Contravest a residential real estate development and property management firm that has multi-family rental properties across the United States. Contravest is backed by investors from Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. A second public hearing on the development agreement is set Feb. 28 when a second and final vote will take place. Assuming the proposal passes, it will take about two more months to obtain the necessary permits. Once that is accomplished, Contravest is expected to begin laying pipes and other infrastructure for the apartments, which will be called The Courtney at Bay Pines. The duration of the project is estimated at 18 months. Architects for the development appeased residents north of the site by adding a 6-foot PVC fence and dropping the elevation to allow for southward water drainage. There are 4 acres of ponds there now, said Mark Ely, community development director for the city, and there will be 12 acres of ponds when its complete. They (KE Bay Pines Properties) is tripling the number so stormwater runoff will not be a problem. Residents who live to the west of the project on Woodland Drive expressed concerns over privacy and water flow through a nearby ditch. Some of my concerns are water flow and if it will affect our properties, said Marilyn Murphy of 4992 Woodland Drive. Another concern is along our backyards where there are going to be parking spaces. It wont be that far away from our homes. There will be car exhaust and noise to deal with.

They will be built near the flag pole in the parking lot, facing 113th Street, said Edmunds. Its for anybody with an electric vehicle to use. Edmunds said there will be no charge to use the facility.

Chelsea Weaver, 23, and her 18-year-old sister Kendra Weaver, a senior at Seminole High School, won a contest conducted by Tampa radio station WFLZ (93.3-FM) that paid for the pair to enjoy musics biggest night of the year. Looking back on our trip, we are so thankful to have been given this opportunity, said Chelsea, a 2010 graduate of USF St. Petersburg. It was truly a night to remember. Chelsea and Kendra arrived at the Staples Center a little over an hour before show time. Seeing all the celebrities from our seats was truly mind-blowing, said Chelsea. We could spot Lady Gaga the entire time from where we were seated. The highlight of the evening was British singer Adele who won Album of the Year and five other Grammys. But it was her performance of Rolling in the Deep that grabbed the two sisters attention. Her voice is as clear as crystal and as powerful as ever, Chelsea said. It was so amazing to be there for her long awaited comeback. A few other favorites included Taylor Swift and Coldplay. The girls dream weekend began to materialize in December when they heard about the contest on WFLZ. See GRAMMYS, page 4APhotos courtesy of CHELSEA WEAVERBudget cuts not expected to hit SPC By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE If all goes as expected, St. Petersburg College should be relatively unaffected by sizeable budget cuts to the states college and university system. SPC president Bill Law told members of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce Feb. 16 that his schools $145 million budget should not be impacted as heavily by state legislators as the states major universities. I think well come out whole, Law said. Enrollment growth and the revenue from a small tuition increase should produce just enough to keep everything together. Laws comments came just a few days after officials at the University of South Florida were notified of a proposed 58 percent cut in funding by the Florida Senate budget committee for 2012-13. Other state universities faced similar cuts but not as large as those aimed at USF. Well all live through this, Law said, but its not good to be trashing higher education. Trust me, every (college faculty) candidate from out of state will be aware of that story. Law said the budget process has gotten more heated each year. It all starts with the governor recommending no funding cuts, said Law. Then the House (of Representatives) recommends no cuts and the Senate recommends no cuts. See SPC, page 4A Bill Law

The Clearwater City Council wants to regulate them, but the dilemma facing the council is how to provide enough regulation to ensure safety without over regulating to the point that it drives their owners out of business. At the councils Feb. 13 work session, Assistant City Attorney Rob Surrette told the council that he has drafted a proposed ordinance that would require companies that rent vehicles to have $500,000 worth of insurance for each occurrence and name the city as a co-insured, and to obtain a certificate to engage in business that would be renewed at the same time as their business license. In addition, the owner would have to have his vehicles inspected by a mechanic and submit a sworn statement saying that his vehicles are in safe condition and he knows the law pertaining to putting them out for hire. If the pedicabs or other vehicles are to be driven by professional drivers, instead of by the renter, owners must also submit a list of all such drivers in their employ. Professional drivers must submit written proof of their criminal and driving histories that is less than 30 days old and will be disqualified if they have a history of drunken driving, lewd conduct or being a sexual predator. In addition, they must present a letter from their prospective employer, saying that they have a job waiting if they pass the background check. Once the rental requirements have been met, the next problem is where the vehicles should be allowed to operate. If they operate on the sidewalk they could injure pedestrians, but if they operate in the street they risk being hit by faster-moving cars. Surrette said that police officers worry most about the pedicabs because they are so slow, while the motorized vehicles and the surrey bikes, which are pedaled by all four passengers, are fast enough to keep up with traffic. But getting from North Beach to South Beach, or vice versa, is a huge problem because there is no way to do it without either driving on the sidewalk or competing with the cars in Clearwater Beachs infamous roundabout. The staff feels very strongly that slow-moving vehicles should not be in the roundabout, City Manager Bill Horne told the council. Surettes solution was to allow those vehicles to briefly navigate on the sidewalk to avoid the roundabout, but he said that the council has the right to ban such vehicles from certain streets and at certain times, such as spring break. Mayor-elect George Cretekos said that the city would have to be careful about the wording of a ban on slow-moving vehicles in the beach roundabout because, if worded too broadly, it could also apply to roundabouts in other areas of the city, where the beachs problems dont exist. This is complicated, very complicated, said Councilwoman Doreen Hock DiPolito, who was attending her first council work session after being elected without opposition on Jan. 31. Cretekos then agreed to postpone the vote on the matter, which had been scheduled for Feb. 16, until DiPolito and the other new council member, Jay Polglaze, could meet with Surrette and be brought up to speed on the discussions about pedicabs that had taken place before they were elected. Lester R. DaileyPinellas Park considers appeal changePINELLAS PARK Residents who disagree with a Board of Adjustment decision could have a chance to plea their case in front of the Pinellas Park City Council before taking the matter to court, according to a change currently under consideration. Opponents say the change would reduce the autonomy of the board and introduce a political element to a process that was meant to be devoid of political pressures. I ask you to think twice about voting for the ordinance regarding the board of adjustments that is before you because it is a slap in the face of the civic-minded citizens that sit and serve on the board, said Mike Silcott, a member of the board. The change was passed through first reading Feb. 9. A public hearing on the issue will be held Feb. 23. The board of adjustment meets every month to consider variance requests to the citys Zoning and Flood Damage Control codes. Currently, the only way to appeal the decision of the board, should a resident feel it wasnt fair, is to take the matter to court. The volunteer board often handles property disputes between neighbors, taking their own time and expense to research the situation and freeing up the council to handle more pressing matters, Silcott explained. Almost all of its decisions were unanimous, he added. See COUNTY, page 3A

Indian Rocks Road, Belleair Bluffs 727-581-6585021612 Councilman Rick Butler said Silcott and the other members of the board shouldnt take the proposed change personally or as a slap in the face. Adding an appeal process through the council gave residents a deserved and affordable recourse, he said. The fee for filing an appeal would cost $250, according to the proposed ordinance. On the other hand, hiring an attorney to fight the decision in the circuit court costs a minimum of $18,000, Butler said. Anytime my citizens would like to address city council on a decision that they dont feel was fair and equitable, I welcome that, because I was elected to do that job, he explained. You people are appointed, he said to Silcott. Former Pinellas Park Mayor Cecil Bradbury spoke against the change, saying that the board of adjustment should be autonomous. It was set up that way originally, and I dont think our forefathers, long before me, got it wrong. It worked well for a lot of years, he said. The board of adjustment isnt subject to political pressures, which is ideal, Bradbury said. One hundred people in a room wont sway their decision, but it will the council. Ive seen it do it, so I know it does, he said. Butler argued that when the board of adjustments was created, a resident could hire an attorney for a couple hundred bucks. The process has become very complicated. What this is, is for our taxpayers and our residents to have one more step of regress, he said. Why the board of adjustment feels were going to circumvent every decision they make is beyond me. It takes two people to file this appeal to come before us. What scares them, Cecil? Bradbury was involved in a board of adjustment hearing after getting into a dispute with his neighbor over an arbor and a hedge on their respective properties. The board of adjustment ruled in Bradburys favor once, prompting his neighbor to ask for the council to step in. The council requested the decision go back before the board, which again made the same decision. Both Bradbury and Silcott said they felt the appeals change had been prompted by that case. Butler said the issue was bigger than that. City council initiated the amendment during a workshop Oct. 11. Bradbury argued that the board of adjustments should act like judges, and shouldnt be appointed based on what decisions they were likely to make. Silcott later called the comment a veiled threat. Councilman Ed Taylor cut into the back and forth to remind everyone that the council would be considering the issue in full Feb. 23, taking a roll-call vote after a public hearing. Councilwoman Sandra Bradbury said she didnt want the public to lose sight of the fact that the council was very appreciative of all citizen boards. Butler agreed to the sentiment. Juliana A. TorresChanges coming to Bluffs event traditionsBELLEAIR BLUFFS New ways of looking at long-established holiday and other traditional city events were presented at the Feb. 13 City Commission workshop. A series of changes to the dates, frequency and/or content of major happenings in the city were outlined by Commissioner Taylour Shimkus. Her recommendations drew strong support from other commission members. Shimkus suggested ditching the Fourth of July barbeque traditionally provided for residents in favor of a breakfast. Pancakes and bacon and eggs would be easier to prepare, she said, and the timing would allow people to attend other events or go to the beach later in the day. Suggested hours would be 8 to 11 a.m. Shimkus also mentioned hiring a local church, which has a kitchen on a bus, to handle the cooking. The Christmas holiday affair, which is normally done on the first Monday of December, would be changed to later in the week, a Thursday or Friday night, and possibly a little later in the month. The date would be aligned with the availability of the horse-drawn hayride, which has become a popular attraction second only to Santa, Shimkus said. The change would give city staff time to prepare for the event without the disruption of the weekend, assure continuation of the hayride, and maybe draw more people, she said. Wayne AyersBiltmore demolition permit application deemed insufficientBELLEAIR Cardno TBE, the town of Belleairs planning consultant, has reviewed the demolition permit application for the Belleview Biltmore Hotel and found the application to be insufficient. The Cardno TBE report concludes that the application filed by Biltmore Construction, LLC does not meet the requirements of the towns code of ordinances regarding historic preservation and related land development issues and is therefore incomplete and/or insufficient. The report states that a complete resubmittal is required. Several parts of the application were deficient, said Town Manager Micah Maxwell. For example, the code as defined by the historic preservation ordinance requires a site plan for whatever the redevelopment will be. That is not defined in the application for a special certificate of appropriateness where they checked demolition, residential, new construction, single-family and multi-family.

Progress Energy will retain ownership of the units through the term of the agreement, which expires April 27, 2013. Plans call for the construction of two Eaton Pow-RStation units that will fill a depleted all-electric car battery in about four hours. In other action, councilors: Passed an ordinance on first reading that amends the current budget to recognize additional revenue of $228,355 from the fiscal 2011 budget. A total of $127,500 comes from the infrastructure fund balance and $62,712 from the CIP fund balance. A total of $32,105 comes from the citys general fund balance. Approved $2,100 in payment to four musical groups that will perform at the 2012 Pow Wow Festival. Named Tom Barnhorn a candidate to the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust board for the Florida League of Cities. ELECTRIC, from page 1AThey played a four-second montage that included eight different songs from Grammy nominated artists, said Chelsea. The trick was to put the song titles and artists names in the correct order to win. We spent a week of rigorous listening and dissecting to figure out what they could be. On Dec. 27, they got a call from the radio station notifying them they had won. As dancers, L.A. is the biggest dance spot in the country and we couldnt wait to get a taste of the city, said Chelsea. Seeing the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame, Chinese theater, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive and so much more was a dream come true. But the highlight of our trip was definitely Feb. 12 musics biggest night. GRAMMYS, from page 1AOthers expressed concern over the ditch being piped and the impact on wildlife in the area. Ely explained that the ditch will not be piped and none of the development runoff will go through the ditch. He said a small environmental area between the west side of the project and the homeowners backyards would be sufficient. Ida Harris, another Woodland Drive homeowner, wondered why a 6-foot fence is not being built on the west side behind proposed garages. Ely later explained that the elevation of the apartment property would be dropped and the angle of view from the parking lot should prevent invasions of privacy for the homeowners. Some of the proposed buildings would be four stories in height. The maximum height is 72 feet. There will be one point of entry and exit to the apartments off Frontage Road, which will be rebuilt about 100 feet north of the current Frontage Road. There will be two entrances into the development off 101st Way at the new Frontage Road and 48th Avenue North. Future phases of the mixed-use development will include residential, retail, a hotel and a restaurant. Another site on the northeast corner of the development has been designated for a future city fire station. The apartments will feature a Spanish style of architecture, similar to the design across the street at the Bay Pines VA Health Center. DEVELOPMENT, from page 1AEverybody agrees to no cuts. Then as soon as you walk out the door, they cut you. Despite increasing administrative challenges, Law said SPC has been able to grow consistently. He said student enrollment is now about 33,000. Progress is most noticeable in the schools fouryear baccalaureate program, which produced 1,000 baccalaureate degrees a year ago and 5,000 degrees over the last 10 years. Of the 1,000 four-year degrees earned last year, 200 were Bachelor of Science degrees in nursing and 200 others in teacher education. Others graduated with degrees and certifications in veterinary science, and three levels of paralegal education. Law said about two-thirds of SPCs students receive some form of financial aid. About 17,000 students received approximately $50 million in Pell Grant funds last year. He said the Florida Legislature gave state schools the green light for an 8 percent increase in tuition a year ago but SPC opted for only a 3 percent in August and another 3 percent in January. If funding comes through this spring, SPC is hopeful for a library expansion, funding a marine science project at Bay Pines and possible future expansion of the University of Florida dental school on the Seminole campus. Law said the Seminole campus is on the move and is in the process of increasing its faculty by eight positions. Three of the vacancies, he said, were the results of retirements and the other five are new positions. Four of the positions were in English writing, which drew 240 applicants. Were committed to hiring the best faculty in the nation, Law said. Were buyers in a buyers market. Others are cutting and were hiring.

The plan, developed by town Clerk Mary Palmer with advice from town attorney James Denhardt, features some major realignments to create compact, contiguous districts that contain relatively equal numbers of voters. That has not been the case in Redington Shores for a number of years, Denhardt said in a strong warning delivered at the outset. For years, it has been known your districts were out of whack, but the commissions have chosen to wait, Denhardt said. Now you have to do it. You dont have a choice. Denhardt said communities are bound by the U.S. Constitution and federal law to have election districts where the number of electors are as equal as possible and everyone has the same weight of representation. The largest of Redington Shores four districts contains 449 people and the smallest 322. Thats way out of shape, Denhardt said. The town is violating the one man, one vote rule and inviting a lawsuit, he said. Further, If someone filed a lawsuit right now in federal court (over the redistricting), they would win, he said. I would not have a defense, as off-kilter as you are right now. There are lawyers searching for lawsuits to get attorneys fees, Denhardt said. This is an opportunity for a lawyer to file a suit and make a quick $30,000. Palmer said the districts have been unequal for years, but matters became worse when the town annexed the former Parsleys trailer park property and we just threw it into District 3. This has bothered me ever since, Palmer said, adding it is her responsibility to make the districts as even as possible. Palmer presented two redistricting plans to the commission. All but Commissioner Casey Wojcik favored Plan 2, which was seen as the least disruptive of present boundaries. Even that proposal had some major changes. The huge Redington Shores Towers condominium complex, which Commissioner Lee Holmes said could elect a mayor by itself, will move from Holmes district (4) to Wojciks (3). Wojcik was not happy that the whole neighborhood from 180th to 182nd Avenue East goes from his district to District 4. He also will be losing the formerly unincorporated Parsleys property that was added to District 3 several years ago. That land now contains the Redington Shores Yacht and Tennis Club, a mixture of condos and single-family residences. Under the new plan, the Yacht and Tennis Club would be split between Districts 1 (Tom Kapper) and 2 (John Branch). Wojcik opposed both redistricting proposals, arguing the town would be better off electing all commissioners citywide. Most other local beach communities have citywide election of commissioners rather than within districts. Wojcik said the commissioners have assignments citywide and serve the entire city, so they should be elected at large. Changing to citywide election of commissioners would require a city charter rewrite and a referendum vote, a process that could take well over a year. Denhardt also reminded the commission that a charter change and referendum vote involves a citizens committee. The issue of term limits will come up, he said. Most current commission members have served multiple terms. Denhardt told the commission they need to act now. He suggested the commission pass a redistricting plan right away to assure equal representation, and talk about other possible changes later. The district changes need to move ahead, Mayor Bert Adams agreed. We want to avoid a lawsuit, Adams said. If we go ahead and redistrict now, we can discuss the other issues at a later time. The redistricting plan agreed to by the commission will be voted on at the April 11 regular commission meeting, with a second hearing and vote the following month.NRB honors trio of citizens By JEANNIE CARLSONNORTH REDINGTON BEACH An unusually high turnout of residents came to honor Jerry Knight, Ted Dahl and Bill McGavren at the Feb. 9 North Redington Beach town hall meeting. Accolades were bestowed by the Town Commission during new business.Bill McGavren DayMayor Bill Queen paid tribute to Bill McGavren, co-owner of the Frog Pond Restaurant who passed away on Jan. 17 at the age of 73. Commissioners proclaimed Feb. 9 Bill McGavren Day in his memory and in recognition of his contribution to putting North Redington Beach on the map with the popularity of the Frog Pond Restaurant. Bills partner, Denis Merkle, and the manager of the Frog Pond, David Hitterman, were presented a plaque by the town to commemorate the event.New commissioner honoredThe Town Commission presented a plaque to Ted Dahl for six years of service on the towns Planning and Zoning Board from 2006 to 2012. Next month Dahl will be sworn in as commissioner, Seat 3. He ran unopposed for the seat from which Jerry Knight is retiring. Dahl is originally from Massachusetts and moved to North Redington Beach with his wife Ann in 1991. In addition to the Planning and Zoning Board, Dahl served on the Code Enforcement Board for three years and on the towns picnic committees in the 1990s. Dahl retired from the insurance and real estate industries, after working for Prudential Insurance and Caldwell Banker, among others. Currently, Dahl and his wife enjoy a quiet life with their dog Mandy.Knight steps downIn recognition of Knights service to the town as commissioner, Seat 3, from 2003 to 2012 and as vice mayor from 2006 to 2011, commissioners presented Knight with a plaque and a key to the city. It was Knights last town hall meeting before retiring from the commission. A cake and coffee reception in his honor immediately followed the meeting at town hall. Nine years went by really fast, said Knight. It proves the old adage that time flies when you are having fun. It was a great honor to be here.NRB March meeting changedThe March town hall meeting has been rescheduled from March 8 to March 15. North Redington Beach town hall meetings are regularly held on the second Thursday of the month but this years March meeting will be held on the third Thursday of the month in order to accommodate the installation of town officials. The towns charter states that the town hall meeting must be held after the municipal election that month.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Nicholas Charles Gipson, 26, of Seminole, who was traveling southbound on Starkey Road in the outside lane, swerved and tried unsuccessfully to avoid the collision. The front of Gipsons 2011 Hyundai Sonata struck Irene Cardwell, who was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.Toy gun gets Seminole teen in troubleTAMPA A Seminole teen was arrested Feb. 18 after waving a long-barreled pistol at motorists on the Howard Frankland Bridge. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, several 911 calls were received about 11:44 a.m. regarding a man brandishing a gun in a burgundy 1994 Chevrolet pickup truck traveling northbound across the bridge. Other motorists followed the truck as it continued northbound on I-275 and eventually exited onto Fowler Avenue in Tampa. FHP Troopers responded, located the vehicle, conducted a felony traffic stop on Fowler Avenue just east of I-275 and took Michael Francis Schreiber, 19, of Seminole into custody. Troopers also located a weapon that matched witnesses descriptions. Schreiber was arrested for improper exhibition of a dangerous weapon or firearm and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail where he was released on $500 bond a few hours later. According to the jail report, the gun was a toy.Woman shot accidentally at church diesST. PETERSBURG A woman shot in the head Feb. 12 at her church in Lealman was pronounced dead about 10:20 a.m. Feb. 18 at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Hannah Kelley, 20, of St. Petersburg was the daughter of the churchs pastor. Pinellas County sheriffs detectives are still investigating the apparent accidental shooting at Grace Connection Church, 4017 56th Ave. N., where several church members had gathered in the recreation room just after noon Sunday, Feb. 12, when a bullet passed through a closet wall into the room and hit Kelley in the head. Detectives say Kelleys boyfriend, Dustin Bueller, 20, of St. Petersburg asked Moises Zambrana, 48, of Pinellas Park, to let him see his gun. Bueller was thinking of buying a gun when he turned 21. Bueller, John Penu, 19, of St. Petersburg, and Zambrana stepped into a small closet next to the recreation room. Zambrana had removed the magazine from the gun and was explaining the weapons safety features, when the pistol fired. No charges have been filed in what is now a death investigation. Detectives said Zambrana had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Kelleys remains were taken to the medical examiners office for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.Deputy hit at Lealman intersectionLEALMAN Deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Offices Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a deputy involved traffic crash that occurred about 12:20 a.m. Feb. 18 at the intersection of 54th Avenue North and 49th Street North in Lealman. Deputy Gary Wilson was on duty in his 2005 Chevrolet Impala marked sheriffs cruiser with the emergency equipment activated responding to a report of a burglary in progress at the time of the crash, according to deputies. Wilson was eastbound on 54th Avenue and had stopped at a red light at 49th Street with his emergency equipment activated as he waited for traffic to stop before proceeding through the intersection. All traffic had stopped when Wilson continued into the intersection on his way to the emergency call. Just as Wilson reached the far side of the intersection, Kent Gulley, 67, of St. Petersburg, who was northbound on 49th Street in his 2006 Colorado pick-up, struck the passenger side of Wilsons cruiser. Deputies say Gulley did not notice Wilsons vehicle or that traffic had stopped. Wilson was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he was treated and released for minor injuries. Gulley was not injured, however, later after the crash he was taken by a family member to a local hospital for examination. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage. No one was cited; the crash is still under investigation.Robbery-homicide unit closing casesLARGO Detectives with the sheriffs robberyhomicide unit are maintaining a perfect record for the second year thanks to the Feb. 17 arrest of a man wanted in connection with a Dec. 21 shooting death in St. Petersburg. The suspect was arrested in Hickory, N.C., and is awaiting extradition to Pinellas County where he faces first-degree murder charges. It is the last case to clear of 14 worked by robbery-homicide detectives during 2011. The unit also had a 100 percent case clearance rate for homicides in 2010.Crime rate down in PinellasLARGO Part one crimes decreased by 7.62 percent in 2011 for the entire area served by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced the news Feb. 16. He said the decrease is significant on several levels. This is the third year in a row we have achieved a decrease in part one crimes, in spite of the many budget cuts we had to make across the agency. The three year decrease is 11.98 percent overall. Part one crimes are murder, forcible sex, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The sheriffs jurisdiction includes the unincorporated area and 12 cities that have contracted with the sheriff for primary law enforcement services. The cities are Belleair Beach, Belleair Bluffs, Dunedin, Indian Rocks Beach, Madeira Beach, North Redington Beach, Oldsmar, Redington Beach, Safety Harbor, Seminole and South Pasadena. The sheriff attributes the decrease to a successful restructuring of the agency, which focused on the efficient delivery of public safety services even with a decrease in staff. We have become a leaner operation, and by aggressively targeting hot spots and using proactive law enforcement strategies, we have managed to make a difference, he said. I cant say enough about our members who implemented this approach their performance is commendable during these changing and challenging times.Man injured in watercraft crashCLEARWATER An Oldsmar man suffered serious injuries Feb. 14 when his personal watercraft crashed near Island Way in the Intracoastal Waterway. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, after the crash, Michael R. Eytchison, 33, was transported to the docks by his co-worker Matthew J. Eickmeyer, 22. Eytchison was transported to St. Josephs Hospital in Tampa for treatment of serious, but nonlife-threatening facial injuries and possible neck injuries. Deputies say the men, employed by Short Block Technologies, a company that builds motors and tests parts for watercrafts, were out testing the crankshafts of the watercrafts for their employer at the time of the crash. The two were riding westbound about 3 p.m. on the north side of the Clearwater Memorial Causeway, when Eickmeyer lost sight of Eytchison. Eickmeyer proceeded to the area where he last saw Eytchison and discovered him injured in the mangroves. Eickmeyer put Eytchison on his personal watercraft and immediately transported him to the Seminole Street boat ramp. According to Marine Unit investigators, it appears Eytchison attempted to turn away from the mangroves as he approached them, but failed to make the turn and continued on into the mangroves at a rate of speed of about 30 miles per hour Deputies say the crash does not appear to be alcohol or drug related. The investigation continues.

Gorgeous Estate Home TradeWinds Sandpiper joins forces with Guy HarveyST. PETE BEACH Over the next few months, the TradeWinds Sandpiper Suites, 6000 Gulf Blvd., will soon be transformed into Guy Harvey Outpost a TradeWinds Beach Resort, becoming the first Guy Harvey Outpost in the United States. At an estimated cost of $3 million, the rebranding of the 211-room beachfront property will begin immediately, with an expected completion date of 2013. With its beachfront location, the endless water sports activities in the Tampa Bay area, and TradeWinds continued dedication to sustainable tourism and marine conservation, we found the TradeWinds Sandpiper to be the perfect property to introduce the Guy Harvey brand in the United States, said Mark Ellert, president of Guy Harvey Outpost LTD. Through our partnership with Guy Harvey, we are looking forward to furthering our commitment to conservation and education while continuing to provide extensive recreational options for our guests, said Keith Overton, president of TradeWinds Island Resorts. It is a wonderful addition for our guests and the local and state tourism industry. According to Overton, pending final lender approval, the rebranding project will include: Incorporation of the signature Guy Harvey brand throughout the public and exterior spaces of hotel and meeting space, including all artwork, murals, and signage. Implementation of a Guy Harvey dcor theme in all the guestrooms, which also will receive new carpet, paint, artwork and flat screen HDTVs. Replacement of existing hotel shop with a Guy Harvey Adventure Center, featuring officially licensed Guy Harvey clothing, products and souvenirs; video displays of Guy Harvey content and conservation information; as well as a water sports and activities center. Re-imaging of the resorts current restaurant and beach bar to reflect the new Guy Harvey brand. Development of a casual, upscale, marinethemed Guy Harvey restaurant with lounge area, private dining and retail store. The Outpost property will remain owned and managed by the TradeWinds Island Resorts and will continue to share privileges with its nearby, larger sister property, the TradeWinds Island Grand.

Patches of water were so calm that they looked like patches of ice, replete with silver sheen. Among them, a mother and calf dolphin periodically surfaced to breathe. The mother FM hunted in a broad stretch of the saltwater river known as the Intracoastal Waterway. Her son Fennel hunted a goodly distance away. Though dispersed, their movements were closely coordinated as they oozed south at a leisurely pace unknown on land. The two werent alone. Trailing some distance behind them, a third dorsal fin appeared sporadically in the glossy waters. Friend or foe? Fennel, a couple of hundred yards ahead of his mom, came abreast of South Cross Cove. Its a shallow pocket renowned among dolphins for its thick layers of marine snow that hide a great many things of interest to the dolphin community. But he kept going. When FM came abreast of it, she veered in to search for snacks. Fennel slowed until he found a likely spot and began to swim slowly around it, waiting for his mom. Dolphins wait for each other with some regularity (Dolphin Watchs Wait and See). Perhaps this was the moment that the mysterious trailing fin had waited for. In any case, it appeared quite suddenly at young Fennels side. It was an adolescent bottlenose dolphin new to our waterways that we call Bora. Like children confined to the doctors office waiting room, waiting soon gave way to play. With customary dolphin enthusiasm, Bora and Fennel flung themselves into wrestling as lightly and smoothly as the seas themselves. In so doing, they expressed that mysterious dolphin psychology of socializing next to the boat. For an endless time, we watched them submerge and swirl; rise to prod, push, or nudge each other; and dash off in fake flight with a trail of footprints. Right before the game of Carry Me, Bora surfaced with a small slab of seaweed plastered onto the end of its mouth, arching extra high over the water surface. It lowered itself back in with care. Underwater, it twisted. Fennel swam underneath and surfaced, Bora perched on Fennels back. Even their most playful moves were paced and easy-going, such as when Bora poked Fennel from underneath and Fennel raised his flukes in mock protest, pretending he was going to kick Bora in the face. Between the flair of the day and the dolphins, the observation was superlative in every way but one: Would there be moments like this in the future? The frequency with which we encountered bottlenose dolphins in our local waters was lower in 2011 than any year since we began monitoring them in 2005. This conclusion is based on the number of dolphins we saw each time we surveyed our study area. A total of 882 surveys from 20052011 show that the annual average frequency of seeing dolphins was down 33 percent in 2011 from previous years. A caveat is that this conclusion is based on only one measure. There are many more measures to investigate. The dolphins story has just begun to unfold. On the other hand, its hard to argue with data because they dont lie. They also have their own questioning voice that goes something like this: If the frequency of seeing dolphins was down 33 percent in 2011 from previous years, which years? All six previous years? Some years? One year? The short answer is half of them. The frequency with which we found dolphins alternated between high and low (most frequent in 2005, 2007, and 2009; least frequent in 2006, 2008, and 2010). If the alternating pattern had continued into 2011, dolphins would have been most frequent. Instead, 2011 dolphins were statistically less frequent than the most frequent years (2005, 2007, and 2009). Another question: Since our local dolphins have a strong seasonal rhythm (seen most in summer, least in winter, and in between during spring and fall), was this reduction the same across all four seasons? No, it was not. In essence, winter numbers were statistically lower than one previous year. Summer numbers were statistically lower than two previous years. Autumn numbers were statistically lower than three previous years. In contrast, spring numbers did not differ from previous years. (I forgot to mention another feature of data: They love to equivocate!) Yet, spring 2011 was anomalous in other ways. The dolphins spring return to the Intracoastal Waterway from their winter quarters (presumably the Gulf of Mexico) was weeks late. In addition, they came back with slender red hitchhikers called Xenobalanus (Dolphins Watchs Hassles of tassels). The presence of these more or less ecologically benign (commensal) barnacles was another unusual characteristic that distinguished 2011 from previous years. Assessment of the number of individuals that comprise a community of free-ranging animals is the basis of any management strategy. You have to monitor an animal community for eight years to predict its population trend of decline, growth, or steady state.

Viewpoints 11A Beacon, February 23, 2012 Gov. Mitt Romney recently declared that he is severely conservative. He neglected to say exactly what that means, so well have to guess. Or maybe do our own research. On the question of abortion, for example, there are several degrees of conservatism. A slightly conservative person will favor allowing a woman to stay out of jail even if she has an abortion. A moderate conservative will send the woman to prison, take away her child until age 10 and then exile both mother and child to Australia for the rest of their lives. A severe conservative (and here Im only guessing) will support laws that would allow the arrest and moderate torture of any pregnant woman (and her boy friend) for even having sex without using birth control. Some studies have shown that severe conservatives tend to oppose sex in any form before marriage, and only limited sex after marriage. Of course, such studies are questionable. Just ask Newt Gingrich. The death penalty is another major issue that many conservatives cannot agree on. A gentle conservative (if youll allow that term) believes in executing a felon only after all appeals have been exhausted, provided the appeals process doesnt last longer than six months. A middle-of-the-road conservative assumes that anyone charged with murder is probably guilty, and therefore does not deserve to have a public defender appointed to argue his or her case in court. A severe conservative will encourage police to fatally wound anyone found within 50 yards of a murder scene, especially if the bystanders are black or Hispanic. This is called playing the odds, i.e., if you whack all of the people at the crime scene, chances are good that at least one of them is the guilty perpetrator. This follows the hallowed conservative principle, Better that a dozen innocent people be mowed down than that a single guilty man should go free. The question of affirmative action provokes many arguments among conservatives. Some admit that America has a history of racism, and that minority members should therefore be given a slight break when applying for jobs or college. Moderate conservatives go along with that, but only if the applicants are blind persons suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease. On the far right, severe conservatives argue that in Gods sight all humans are created equal, and that affirmative action is nothing but reverse discrimination, and a product of communism and atheism. Their motto: Give em an inch and theyll take a mile. Conservatives generally agree on the economy and how it should work. They sum it up by quoting the Golden Rule, i.e., Whoever has the gold should make the rules. They like to quote from that Michael Douglas movie where he says, Greed is good. Although a few conservatives may concede that laws are sometimes needed to prevent corruption in the stock market and mortgage lending, severe conservatives become apoplectic when they are accused of screwing the public in any fashion. One Wall Street CEO summed it up this way: If Americans dont like the way capitalism operates, let them keep their money at home, wrapped in a pillowcase. Dont spend a nickel for anything. See what that gets them. Nothing troubles conservatives more than the questions of homosexuality and gay marriage. A true conservative will tend to argue that homosexuality is a myth, something like Santa Claus, dreamed up by bored Parisians to flesh out a slow summer in the 1880s. If they do those nasty things with each other, its only because they choose to. Standard conservative responses to a child who announces, Dad, Im gay, is to simply disown the offender or enroll him in a Christian concentration camp that promises to convert him into a replica of John Wayne. Although an increasing number of states are authorizing same-sex marriages, severe conservatives are responding by building gated villages guarded by large dogs trained to attack same-sex couples of either gender who wander by. I hope I havent offended anyone with my foregoing comments, which I admit may contain one or two exaggerations. Its always dangerous to generalize about political viewpoints. But thats how the current crop of GOP presidential candidates is treating some of the hot-button issues. They tippy-toe around them, instead of coming right out and saying hard-rock, unmistakable things like My wife is gay and Im proud of it! the way Ronald Reagan would have done if hed have one day caught Nancy in bed with Maureen OHara or Esther Williams. Im glad we have several more months of campaigning ahead of us. By November were sure to know exactly what severe conservatism is, or isnt.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. What is severe conservatism? Voice outrage over amendmentEditor: When the Obama administrations health care financing plan was signed into law, President Obama and Congress promised that funds under the new law would not cover abortions. This has proven to be empty rhetoric. Why? Because the Department of Health and Human Services has mandated that under the health care law, private insurance plans must cover the full range of FDA approved contraception in which category HHS explicitly included the abortion-inducing drug ella. Shame on you Sen. Mikulski. This mandate is anti-Christian and especially anti-Catholic. You of all people should know better. This mandate includes a so-called religious employer exemption, yet the exemption is so narrowly defined that most religious schools, colleges, hospitals and charitable organizations serving the public do not qualify. Even an expanded definition of religious employer would fail to protect non-religiously affiliated organizations, individuals and even religiously affiliated health insurers who prolife consciences are nonetheless violated. This is an unprecedented attack on the freedom of conscience of choice to purchase private insurance that does not violate their ethical, moral or religious objections. I hope all readers will contact their elected representatives in Washington, D.C., and voice outrage over this anti-life mandate. Ed Klein ClearwaterSupports Christy for councilEditor: I am supporting Tom Christy for Seminole City Council. Tom is a member of our parish, St. Justin Martyr, here in Seminole. He is active in our parish with most ministries and he is an usher at the 9:30 a.m. mass on Sundays. He is faith-based and principled. He can always be counted on to assist in any way. He is an owner/resident at Seminole Gardens and the folks there appreciate his participation and assistance. Again, he is always willing to help in any way. Tom supports the Seminole Mall and participates in the monthly first Friday events there, sponsored by Freedom Square. He supports the merchants that remain at the mall. He would like to see improvements to the roads in that area, and would like to see the lot at 113th Street and Park Boulevard improved. Tom has unwaveringly supported increased safety for pedestrians, recently presenting a petition to the City Council in support of a comprehensive study to improve pedestrian safety for all our citizens. Tom supports aggressive annexation to grow our city, and increase economic development, and the retention of our mall. He served on the recent Charter Revision Commission, and would like to continue the good work started there. I support Tom as he is forward thinking; he has the vision and the leadership necessary to move our city into the future. He has attended City Council meetings routinely for several years now. He is well versed in all city matters. He supports the Recreation Department and would like to see some Sunday hours available for our residents. He has previously served on the City Council in Tonawanda, N.Y., for several years. He has the time and energy to commit to demands of the position. Sharon Waits SeminoleKnee-jerk reaction unwarrantedEditor: Im appalled at the idea that any governmental body in Pinellas County would consider makeing feeding wild birds a crime. After all, Pinellas County was declared to be a bird sanctuary 100 years ago. Although I am sympathetic to those who are living near people who indulge in feeding large birds (who then leave large droppings), for once, can we take a step back and think about the issue, rather than implementing a knee-jerk reaction that will likely have unintended consequences? Perhaps we do need to implement regulations regarding feeding our largest wild birds, but do we really want to make grandma a fugitive if she wants to continue feeding pigeons on a park bench or an egret in her back yard? How about the fishermen who toss leftover fish parts to hungry pelicans? Instead of a ban, cant we consider restrictions? After all, no one wants a crazy cat lady to inadvertently cause pain and suffering to a hundred animals she has trapped in her trailer, but that doesnt mean we have to outlaw owning cats, does it? There may be some bumps along the way, but isnt the fact that we live in a bird sanctuary and we are bringing some birds, like the wood stork, back from the brink of extinction worth a bit of inconvenience? Instead of a ban, why not incorporate restrictions like: 1) amounts/types of food that can be fed; 2) limiting feeding to enclosed locations like back yards; 3) imposing fines for noncompliance and animal control intervention in those rare instances where it is required due to severe noncompliance. Banning the feeding of wild birds would just make criminals out of good-hearted people. Bonnie-Sue Brandvik BelleairSupports Johnson for councilEditor: I like to cut to the chase, so lets start with this: Patricia (Patti) Johnson for Council Seat 2! I first became aware of Patti when she worked for Freedom Village, an affordable and accessible apartment complex here in Pinellas Park. Fluent in American Sign Language, Patti was often called upon to interpret when police or emergency personnel had to interact with deaf residents at a time when Pinellas Park had the second largest population of deaf residents in the country. As a court-appointed guardian and elder care consultant, Patti is an advocate for the disenfranchised, the elderly, the disabled and the working citizens whose tax dollars make services for these special populations possible. She has had to face down those who would prey on our most vulnerable seniors and has a deep understanding of and appreciation for the needs of our elder population. Pattis volunteer work on our citys Board of Adjustment and Code Enforcement Board have given her experience in weighing the integrity of our ordinances as written against the requirements of common sense and citizens rights. She and her husband, Del, own two local businesses that support employees and provide needed products and services for pet owners and horse enthusiasts. She has distinguished herself in recent months as an advocate for Main Street Fairness, the movement that seeks to close the Internet sales tax loophole that drains revenues from state coffers and leaves brick-and-mortar retailers at an untenable disadvantage. Patti serves on the Board of Directors of the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce and on the Advisory Council of the Pinellas Park Boys & Girls Club, and is a member of the local police departments Volunteer Mounted Patrol and the local Kiwanis Club. It takes guts to make a run for public office when its so easy for anyone who opposes you to shoot carefully worded barbs into your reputation. It takes clear vision to be able to see through all the special interests that cloud even the most basic issues facing civic leaders. It takes experience and courage to recognize the right course of action and pursue it. In Pinellas Park, it takes putting Patricia Johnson in Council Seat 2 on March 13. Billie S. Noakes Pinellas Park Replicas of a classic 1943 Norman Rockwell painting should hang from the walls of every government assembly building in America. It shows a common man, clad in a flannel shirt and lightweight jacket, speaking out on an issue at a public meeting. If memory serves me right from my years of being an editor for the Osceola NewsGazette, the painting has hung from a wall at Kissimmee City Hall for decades. It was given to the city by the late City Commissioner Bob Makinson. The painting is called Freedom of Speech. Hard to believe that in a state that is recognized for its efforts to protect First Amendment rights some local governments fail to grasp that concept. A small amount of governments, I hope. I was reminded of the painting, which can easily be found on websites, as I was reading about proposed legislation that essentially would require local governments in Florida to give the public the opportunity to speak at local government meetings. At the time of this writing, the chances of the bill being passed appear favorable. The Senate passed the bill unanimously. The House and Gov. Rick Scott must act on it before it becomes law. Most government bodies that I have covered over the years allow citizens to comment on matters at their meetings. Many impose time limits, which makes sense. Granted, some citizens get under their elected officials skins, making unsubstantiated allegations, engaging in name calling or playing loose with the facts. I used to cringe when a spokesman for a group called the BVL Guerillas in Kissimmee would come to the podium at County Commission meetings. Hed often misquote our newspaper when trying to make a point or lambasting a board member. Such is life in a fishbowl. Interaction between citizens and board members can be comical, too. I recall a city manager in Osceola County accusing a local gadfly of McCarthyism in his attacks upon officials. When the gadfly got up to the podium, he calmly introduced himself by his name, address and aka, Senator J.R. McCarthy. Even the city manager chuckled. Dissension is healthy in a free society. Unfortunately, the concept is lost on some government bodies. The Florida Supreme Court has stated that government bodies should not be allowed to deprive the public of this inalienable right to be present and to be heard at all deliberations wherein decisions affecting the public are being made. All well and good, but without a law ... Consider that in 2009 the Community Maritime Park Associates, which operates in the Panhandle, was sued by two residents who contended the board violated the Open Meetings Law for not allowing public comment at a meeting. The First District Court of Appeal sided with the board, saying that public meetings must be open, but governments arent required to allow public comment at such meetings. So in the wake of the Maritime Park Associates and other backwater boards running rampant over freedom of speech, a law is needed. Under the proposed legislation, if a person brings a case against a board that wont allow public comment, that government would have to pay the persons related attorneys fees. The other party has to pay those fees if it loses. Some limitations, such as time limits, can be imposed on the right to speak. Its comforting to know that the Legislature, which too often has adopted exemptions to Floridas open government laws, is inclined to embrace the publics right to speak at government meetings. OK. I have been guilty of grumbling to myself about some speakers for making irrelevant and time-consuming remarks at government meetings especially if the meetings drag on for hours in the evening. At such times, I must remind myself that even misguided public opinion goes with the territory in the arena of government affairs. The First Amendment is sacrosanct. Must go to Kissimmee City Hall again, just to gaze at Rockwells painting.

Did you know that when your child is 4 years old they can go to preschool for free? It is part of the state-funded program called Voluntary Prekindergarten or VPK. Right now, preschools are accepting registration for next year. Often, the good schools get filled up fast, so you have to start looking now if you plan on enrolling your child for the fall. You need to look at a preschool that is certified with the state. There are certain requirements that a school must have to be considered as a VPK school. Both of my daughters went to a private preschool at our church. There, they offered VPK three hours a day, Monday through Friday. For our family this was perfect. Other preschools offer VPK three days a week, five hours a day. It all depends on the school. I was a little hesitant at first about preschool because I was a stayat-home mom and my children never went to preschool before. I think my hesitation may have been the fact that I never went to preschool, so I didnt think my kids needed preschool. But my husband and I knew friends that sent their kids to VPK. So, I thought, Well, if it is free, and my kid only goes for three hours a day, I guess I can handle it. I was very impressed by the school. The teachers were fantastic, and my girls loved going to school every day. It was a wonderful time for my daughters to meet other little kids. It also was a great experience for me, because I was able to meet so many other moms that are now my friends. Preschool usually runs around $2,500 for the school year, so we save that much on each child. Its a pretty nice savings, especially if your child was going to be in preschool anyway. I know parents have their own thoughts on whether or not their child should go to preschool, and I respect that. But in the spirit of research, I have asked kindergarten teachers if they noticed a difference between the kids that went to preschool and those that didnt. Most have said yes. My sister is a kindergarten teacher, and she told me she definitely sees a difference at the beginning of the year. She said that the students that attend VPK know a little more what to expect in kindergarten. The students know how to stand in a line, raise their hand to answer a question and, most of the time, they already know their letters of the alphabet. Some even know how to read a little. I think preschool is like kindergarten was back when I was kid, many moons ago. As a warning, if you dont have kids in school yet, you are in for a big surprise. I was shocked when my daughter started reading in preschool. She is in kindergarten now and reads books. When I was little, I remember kindergarten as a time for learning letters and naps. Kids dont get naps anymore and instead learn sight words. They even are writing sentences and stories. Preschool was a good start for my two girls. My recommendation is to check around and see what school fits your needs. Any child that is 4 years old and lives in the state of Florida is eligible for VPK. You do need to register. But if the state is paying for your child to go to preschool, why not take advantage of it? It may not be for every child, but it is an opportunity that you should consider.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 6 and 7, lives in Seminole.

A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operations, Act of Valor features a gripping story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-oftheir-seat journey. When a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA operative unexpectedly results in the discovery of an imminent, terrifying global threat, an elite team of highly trained Navy SEALs must immediately embark on a heart-stopping secret operation, the outcome of which will determine the fate of us all. Act of Valor combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the-minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure filmshowcasing the skills, training and tenacity of the greatest action heroes of them all: real Navy SEALs.WanderlustGenre: Comedy Cast: Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Malin Akerman, Kathryn Hahn, Lauren Ambrose, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Alan Alda Director: David Wain Rated: R Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in Wanderlust, a raucous comedy from director David Wain and producer Judd Apatow about a couple who leaves the pressures of the big city and joins a freewheeling community where the only rule is to be yourself. George (Rudd) and Linda (Aniston) are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with Georges awful brother in Atlanta. On the way there, George and Linda stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. Money? It cant buy happiness. Careers? Who needs them? Clothes? Only if you want them. Is Elysium the fresh start George and Linda need? Or will the change of perspective cause more problems than it solves?GoneGenre: Thriller Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Carpenter, Wes Bentley, Sebastian Stan and Michael Pare Director: Heitor Dhalia Rated: PG-13 In the suspense thriller, Gone, Jill Parrish (Amanda Seyfried) comes home from a night shift to discover her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) has been abducted. Jill, having escaped from a kidnapping a year before, is convinced that the same serial killer has come back and taken Molly. The police think Jill is crazy and are unwilling to use their resources to help her. Afraid that Molly will be dead by sundown, she sets out alone on a heart-pounding chase to find the killer, expose his secrets and save her sister.Tyler Perrys Good DeedsGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Tyler Perry, Thandie Newton, Brian White, Rebecca Romijn, Jamie Kennedy, Eddie Cibrian, Jordenn Thompson, Beverly Johnson, Phylicia Rashad and Gabrielle Union Director: Tyler Perry Rated: PG-13 A successful, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) has always done whats expected of him, whether its assuming the helm of his fathers company, tolerating his brothers misbehavior at the office or planning to marry his beautiful but restless fiance, Natalie (Gabrielle Union). But Wesley is jolted out of his predictable routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton), a downon-her-luck single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. When he offers to help her get back on her feet, the chance encounter with someone so far outside his usual circle ignites something in Wesley. This one good deed may finally spark his courage to exchange the life thats expected of him for the life hes always really wanted. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The Forgiveness of BloodGenre: Drama Cast: Tristan Halilaj and Sindi Laej Director: Joshua Marston Not rated Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay at the Berlin Film Festival, the powerful and richly textured second feature from Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace) focuses on an Albanian family caught up in a blood feud. Nik (Tristan Halilaj) is a carefree teenager in a small town with a crush on the school beauty and ambitions to start his own Internet caf. His world is suddenly up-ended when his father and uncle become entangled in a land dispute that leaves a fellow villager murdered. According to a centuries-old code of law, this entitles the dead mans family to take the life of a male from Niks family as retribution. His uncle in jail and his father in hiding, Nik is the prime target and confined to the home while his younger sister Rudina (Sindi Laej) is forced to leave school and take over their fathers business. Working with nonprofessional Albanian actors and a local co-writer, Marston boldly contrasts antiquated traditions with the lives of the young people whose future is put at risk by them. Tomorrow When the War BeganGenre: Action and thriller Cast: Lincoln Lewis, Chris Pang, Deniz Akeniz, Caitlin Stasey, Phoebe Tonkin and Ashleigh Cummings Director: Stuart Beattie Not rated Based on John Marsdens popular and criticallyacclaimed novel, Tomorrow When the War Began follows the journey of eight high school friends in a coastal country town whose lives are suddenly and violently upended by an invasion that no one saw coming. Cut off from their families and their friends, these eight extraordinary teenagers must learn to escape, survive and fight back against a hostile military force.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Ives has a lot of insightful and thought-provoking questions masked by tremendous comedic delight. The plays explore some interesting philosophical and existential questions such as: Could a construction worker been a famous Russian Czar in a former life? What if you could change the structure of a first date conversation with the simple ringing of a bell? How does famous composer Phillip Glass view simple everyday tasks like buying a loaf of bread? You may even find yourself reciting phrases of Unamunda, a fictitious yet hilarious language created by Ives in The Universal Language. Each Ives episode carries a unique element of style and humor. It all makes for a terrific program of comedy. Glory, Tuesday, Feb. 28, 3 and 7 p.m., at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets are $5.

For those who want to delve into the world of the Borrowers, author Mary Norton penned a number of sequels after publishing the original book The Borrowers in 1952. The series includes The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, The Borrowers Aloft and The Borrowers Avenged. At the heart of The Secret World of Arrietty is a tender tale about a friendship that blossoms between two children from very different worlds. Made by Studio Ghibli, the film was released originally in 2010 in Japan. Walt Disney Pictures released the American dub Feb. 17. Based on the book The Borrowers by Mary Norton, the film follows a family of tiny Borrowers who live underneath the floorboards of an old house in western Tokyo. These diminutive people survive by borrowing things they need from the human inhabitants of the house. The family includes an adventurous 14-year-old girl, Arrietty (voice by Bridgit Mendler), an angst-ridden but loving mother, Homily (voice Amy Poehler); and a brave, soft-spoken father, Pod (voice by Will Arnett). As the story develops, a sickly human boy named Shawn (voice by David Henrie) comes to stay at the house to get rest in anticipation of his upcoming surgery. Over the course of a week, he and Arrietty become unlikely friends though Arrietty knows that revealing herself to a human will force her family to relocate. Complicating their friendship is the housekeeper, Haru (voice by Carol Burnett), who is obsessed with capturing one of the little people to prove their existence. Visually, the film is gorgeous, living up to the high standards set by Studio Ghiblis previous films. The lush colors and the vivid details alone sell this film. Sequences such as Arriettys first borrowing excursion are rendered brilliantly. The girl and her father hike across a bridge of nails, rappel down kitchen counters and stealthily venture through shadowy crawlspaces inhabited by crickets and rats. The details are abundant and striking particularly in terms of the discarded human items which find new life (and new purpose) in the Borrowers household. Arrietty discovers a misplaced pin, which she employs as a sword. According to Homily, a single bay leaf will last her a year. The story has emotional depth, muted tension and a deliberate pace. Challenges are met thoughtfully, dangers approached cautiously and ingenuity is venerated over rash impulsiveness. Even in the most intense scenes, there is nothing particularly frenzied or frantic. Haru stands as the films solitary antagonist, and she more comically inept than threatening. There is an undercurrent of fear that is so subtle it wont jostle younger viewers: Shawns illness is serious and the chances for Borrower familys long-term survival are tenuous. Contrasting the theme of friendship is an emotive examination of loneliness. Fans of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli may be disappointed by the scarceness of fantasy elements in The Secret World of Arrietty. The film leaves the viewer wanting to know more about the Borrowers history, society and culture. Certain characters particularly Haru seem artistically suppressed, as though deeper development might have confounded audiences. In short, the story occasionally feels dumbed down. One expects epic fantasy from Ghibli, and The Secret World of Arrietty falls short of that prospect. Still, its worth seeing if not for the touching story and optimistic (though, thankfully, not idyllic) ending, then definitely for the stunning Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Above: Venturing out of their hideaway beneath the floorboards of an old country house, tiny Arrietty (right, voice by Bridgit Mendler) and her father Pod (left, voice by Will Arnett), embark on an exciting but dangerous borrowing mission, in Studio Ghiblis feature animated adventure, The Secret World of Arrietty, distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
