See page 2B. By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE A home in a quiet Seminole neighborhood was destroyed June 20 following an earlymorning kitchen fire that spread throughout the house. No injuries were reported in the blaze, which occurred at 12133 Rhonda Terrace, off 86th Avenue near the Pinellas Trail. Maria Scarzafava was cooking food on the range about 3 a.m. when she stepped away for a few seconds. By the time she returned, a grease fire had broken out, which quickly engulfed the entire house. She was cooking in the back room (kitchen) and stayed away too long, said Todd Hageman who lived with Scarzafava in the home. The grease caught fire and it spread. Scarzafavas 90-year-old mother, Theresa DAntoni, was in another room watching television and was able to escape safely with Scarzafava and Hageman. Once it got into the ceiling and the skylight, the whole house caught fire, said Scarzafava. We tried putting flour and other things on it and it didnt stop it. I had a fire extinguisher and it didnt do any good. Scarzafava said she has lived in the home for 13 years and her mother for 25 years. Neighbors took in DAntoni, while Scarzafava took refuge with her daughter. The single-story, 2,020-square-foot home was built in 1979 and had an appraised value of $133,371 by the Pinellas County Property Appraisers office.An early-morning kitchen fire spreads throughout the house Photo by BOB McCLUREThe burned remnants of the back porch are testament to the intensity of an early-morning fire June 20 at 12133 Rhonda Terrace in Seminole. Debby hits beaches hardPhoto by BOB McCLUREA sewer main backs up June 24 on Gulf Boulevard at 154th Avenue in Madeira Beach. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County officials spent most of Monday and Tuesday surveying damage from Tropical Storm Debby. Heavy rains, high winds, above-normal tides and high surf buffeted the county all day Sunday and Monday, hitting area beaches very hard. We lost a lot of sand, said Andy Squires, Pinellas Countys coastal manager. A preliminary report of some of the most-damaged areas include the last mile of Sunset Beach, near Johns Pass, and the south end of the beach at Pass-A-Grille, where the water has cut into the existing sand dune. Squires said both areas were considered erosion hot spots, because the beaches are narrower than other locations. A report from Dr. Ping Wang with the University of South Floridas Geology Department listed some preliminary observations. Wangs report said the most severe erosion had taken place at the following locations. On Long Key (St. Pete Beach) at Pass-A-Grille Beach south of the snack bar Long Key at Upham Beach, erosion to the seawall on northern extreme fronting condominium buildings. Wang reports that Upham public beach received considerable erosion but a wide beach remains in the area. Sunset Beach on Treasure Island from Caddys on 90th Avenue southward, erosion has cut an additional 10 to 15 feet into the existing sand dune at some locations. Sunshine Beach on Treasure Island, erosion in the area of 126th and 125th avenues. As of early Monday afternoon, the inspection was not complete at Sand Key Beach and Squires did not know the condition of the Waves crash ashore at Clearwater Beach Sunday afternoon. County officials are inspecting local beaches to check for erosion damage.Storm causes problems throughout Pinellas By SUZETTE PORTERTropical Storm Debby stayed well offshore of Pinellas Countys coastline, but that didnt stop it from causing a myriad of problems. For some it was nothing more than an inconvenience, but to others Tropical Storm Debby has caused a heck of a mess. Tropical Storm Debby made the record books June 23 as the earliest fourth-named storm ever to form during the Atlantic Hurricane season. Pinellas County and the west coast of Florida can thank Debby for one of the wettest Junes on the books. Officials say the storm is proof of their message that it doesnt take a direct hit from a tropical storm or hurricane to cause problems. So far, Sundays weather was the worst of it with high winds buffeting the area and torrential rains continuing until about 3 a.m. Monday. Eight to 10 inches of rain fell within a 24-hour period. Low-lying areas and coastal communities experienced flooding. Roads were closed. Tornado warnings were frequent. Thousands were without power. Mariners were warned to stay ashore. Beachgoers were advised to stay out of the water. Pinellas County partially activated its Emergency Operation Center Sunday night and opened its Citizen Information Center the next morning. The National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm warning for Pinellas County Monday morning. Soon after, County Commission Vice-Chair Ken Welch signed a resolution declaring a local state of emergency to allow a more rapid response to the situation. Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for the entire state Monday afternoon.Record rainfallAccording to the National Weather Service, the most rain ever reported in June at the Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg was 6.38 inches. Dan Noah, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Ruskin, said June 2012 would definitely set a new record. Noah read off some of the four-day totals as of 2 p.m. Monday from NWS reporting stations around Pinellas: 14.28 inches in Tarpon Springs, 13.66 in Largo, 12.60 in Oldsmar, 12.28 in Pinellas Park, 12.27 in Dunedin and 10.61 in St. Petersburg. Storms like Debby is the reason I have flood insurance, Noah said, although he lives inland, well away from the coast. Noah said Mondays weather was much improved over Sunday in Pinellas due in part to dry air that had wrapped itself around the tropical storm; however, local residents shouldnt be surprised if rainbands, See DEBBY, page 4ASunset Beach loses more beachfront Photo by WAYNE CATHEL See BEACHES, page 4A

A day of fishing tops many summer relaxation lists.Around Pinellas Largo leery of letting swimming club run poolLARGO City Commissioner Curtis Holmes floated the idea June 19 of asking a private organization whether it would be interested in running the Southwest Pool, but the suggestion didnt get too far. Holmes, expressing concerns about budget woes, said city officials had presented an option of closing the pool to save money. He said that West Florida Lightning Aquatics approached the city a couple of years ago about running the pool operation. I met with those people two years ago, and they had this idea they could run the whole thing, he said, basically by themselves. I dont know where it went from there, and do we want the parks department and city administration to contact WFLA and see if there is an interest in having a greater role in the Southwest Pool? Mayor Pat Gerard didnt have any interest in having WFLA run the city pool. I think if we are going to have a pool there, that it needs to be open to all the citizens, and in fact I think the limited amount of time that just ordinary people have open swim there has always been a disappointment to me, Gerard said. Commissioner Harriet Crozier said at this time the commission hasnt started to hash out the budget. Commissioners are looking at cutting about $2.79 million from the budget. Im not even looking at alternatives at this point, Crozier said. Im trying to stick with whats been given to us and can we make that work, and so Im not really interested in that at this time. The option of closing the Olympic-sized pool two years ago in preliminary budget cut discussions ended when City Manager Mac Craig told a crowd of concerned citizens at the Largo Library that the city would keep it open. West Florida Lightning Aquatics offers a variety of competitive year-round, swimming programs that include age groups from novice to advanced levels broken down as silver, junior, senior, and national teams. The club has several events at the Southwest Pool. Holmes also asked if commissioners were interested in approaching Belleair Bluffs about the Largo Police Department serving the city. Confidence is high we can give Belleair Bluffs the same level of police service that the sheriff is giving them, and we can probably do it for a little bit less money than the sheriff is charging and this was brought up to the city manager, Holmes said. He said the Belleair Bluffs contract with the Sheriffs Office comes up in October and if Largo can provide the same level of service to Belleair Bluffs and reduce its costs, I think it would be a great benefit to a neighborhood community. Craig said he would discuss the issue with Police Chief John Carroll. Staff also was asked by Commissioner Woody Brown to provide information on the benefits to city residents of the city providing police services to the Bluffs. Another suggestion from Holmes at the meeting drew some interest: the Largo Central Park Railroad Inc. charging for its rides. Holmes said he loves the miniature Largo Central Park Railroad, which provides free rides to park visitors on the first full weekend of each month at Largo Central Park. But we are still spending $25,000 a year to pay their liability insurance. I dont know why we dont encourage those people to charge at least 25 cents for a ride. If they would charge each person 25 cents, which I dont think thats a staggering amount of money, they could actually raise enough money to pay for their own insurance, Holmes said. Staff will contact the railroad organization about the feasibility of paying for its own liability insurance. Tom GermondBelleair Bluffs property values leveling offBELLEAIR BLUFFS A 6.5 percent decrease in the citys property values last year was nearly halted this year as the rate of decline slowed to one-half of 1 percent, according to Property Appraiser Pam Dubov. Dubov reported at the June 18 City Commission meeting that the continuing reduction came mostly from condominiums. Single-family residences are faring better, and commercial values, including apartments and retail spaces, are doing reasonably well, she said. Dubov added the trends in Belleair Bluffs mirror what is happening throughout Pinellas County. As to whether conditions will continue to improve in 2013, Dubov said a big unknown is foreclosures, which peaked at 15,000 for the 2009 tax year, then declined to 11,000 in 2010, 6,400 last year, then jumped to 10,000 this year. The areas of the county where property values dropped the most this year were those with the highest foreclosure rates, she said. Another factor, which will affect property tax revenue next year, is the fate of five constitutional amendments related to property taxes on the ballot this November, Dubov indicated. These relate either to new exemptions, expansions of earlier exemptions, or extensions of benefits already on the books. Passage of these amendments could result in a reduction to the county tax roll revenues of up to 1 percent, Dubov said. Wayne AyersTraffic calming debate continuesBELLEAIR At the town commission workshop back on June 5, commissioners spent 90 minutes discussing a proposed traffic calming policy for the town. At the regular commission meeting Tuesday they again tackled the issue with no different result than the first time. The town still does not have a traffic calming policy and yet more study will take place. The issue is whether or not the town needs a formal policy that would be the standard for all traffic complaints, or if each complaint can be handled on its own merit. While there were compelling arguments from both sides of the debate, it was finally decided to send the proposed policy back to the Infrastructure Board to somehow simplify the policy. Commissioner Kevin Piccarreto again led the anti-policy side of the argument. He sees it as something that could hinder, not help solve a problem. We have had problems that need to be addressed for the past six months, he said. Now as we continue to talk about this policy it might be another six months. Resident Jim White, a member of the Infrastructure Board disagreed. We need the engineering expertise to tell us when there is a problem and to what extent, he said. In fact there have been delays in solving problems because there has been no policy in place. Another board member, Tom Olson, agreed. A policy will give us a level playing field, so we can decide, based on the same criteria, just what the priorities should be. The policy was never meant to take any power away from the commission. Mayor Gary Katica was adamant that something has to be done about the traffic in town, policy or no policy. We have to take back our town, he said. Our roads are being used by nonresidents and we need to stop it. Katica cited what he called an 80 percent drop in traffic when Belleview Boulevard was closed for repairs and the traffic that used Indian Rocks Road, then Belleview to get to Clearwater all went somewhere else. Were constantly being notified by the residents about traffic trouble, he said. Some people even want streets closed, but whatever we decide wont make everybody happy. The mayor used another example of the residents on Wildwood who wanted a speed bump installed to slow down the traffic. Then after a time they came back and said they didnt want it anymore. Thats why we need a policy, we need guidance, he said. In the end the commissioners unanimously decided to give the issue back to the Infrastructure Board for more study. They hope to have the boards report at the next commission meeting in July. Brian GoffVoters to decide commission termsA referendum vote on extending the terms of the mayor and commissioners from two to three years appears headed to the November ballot. The commission unanimously approved sending an amendment authorizing the term increases to the voters. A second reading will be on the agenda next month. Elections cost money to hold, and fewer elections would mean savings for the city, City Clerk Debra Sullivan has pointed out. Commission members also would benefit by having to run less often, reducing their campaign expenses. Commissioner Joseph Barkley said he agreed the three-year terms would save money, but not as much as going to a fall election campaign with longer extensions. A November election also would assure a bigger turnout, he added. Mayor Chris Arbutine disagreed with Barkley, saying the spring elections bring out voters more knowledgeable of local candidates and issues. If we switch to the fall, we will get people who dont pay any attention to city politics and dont know what is going on, he said. Besides, Belleair Bluffs gets a pretty high rate of turnout for city elections, far higher than most other communities, Arbutine asserted. A similar term extension measure was rejected by a nearly 2 to 1 margin when put to the voters in 2006. Arbutine has said other issues on the ballot that year may have influenced that vote.

In Pinellas County, the retail sale or purchase of fireworks that project into the air or explode is prohibited. Pinellas County Public Safety Services urges residents to enjoy fireworks displays that are conducted by trained professionals. Sparklers remain legal, but parents are reminded they can be dangerous, reaching temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Only those over 12 years of age should handle sparklers of any type. Many young people get burned by sparklers every year so adult supervision is necessary at all times. Officials urge citizens to use extreme caution and follow basic safety recommendations: Read all cautions and warnings. Use sparklers only outdoors. Use sparklers as intended do not try to alter or combine them. Do not mix fireworks and alcohol. Never pick up fireworks that may be left over after the display, as they may still be active.

This mailing will take place over three weeks, and the last cards will be mailed July 2. Clark is required to mail new voter information cards to all registered voters as part of the redistricting process, which included redrawing precinct lines to conform to new district boundaries. Some district and precinct numbers have changed, but most polling places remain the same. The new cards will provide voters with their district and precinct numbers and polling places. Voters should look for red-white-and-blue mailers from the Supervisor of Elections and not confuse them with campaign materials. Were asking voters to review the information on their cards to ensure everything is current and accurate, Clark said. If changes need to be made, we encourage voters to call us at 464-VOTE as soon as possible, so we can make the changes before the Aug. 14 primary. Voters who do not receive a voter card by July 6 or have misplaced it, can call 464-VOTE to request a replacement card. Voter information cards are not required to vote. The cards are for informational purposes only. Voters should bring photo and signature identification to the polls to avoid delay. For more information, call 464VOTE (8683) or visit www.vote pinellas.com.Watch the weather, wait to waterThe Southwest Florida Water Management District is encouraging residents who irrigate their lawns to take advantage of the summer rains and watch the weather, wait to water. During the June, July, August and September, yards need no more than 3/4 inch of water every two to three days.
4A SEB Beacon, June 28, 2012bringing winds of 40 to 55 mph and showers continued off and on until Debby made landfall. Latest forecast from the NHC calls for the storm to come ashore along the northwest coast sometime in the next couple of days. Debby remained stalled Monday night and forecasters expected it to begin moving erratically to the northeast in the next couple of days. Debby is a weak storm, but its big and moving slowly, Noah said. I think well feel the impact most of the week. Tim Closterman, director of Pinellas County Communications, drove out to Redington Beach Monday afternoon to look at conditions. He said Debby was reminiscent of Hurricane Elena, which made landfall near Biloxi, Miss., in 1985. Elena stalled out in the Gulf for a time before making it to land and brought heavy rains to the local area. It was a lot of rain, Closterman said. This is a lot of rain.Flooding problemsPinellas County would remain under a flood warning until at least Tuesday night. Dave Baker, public information manager with Pinellas County Communications, said the NWS had told county officials during a Monday briefing that another 5 to 8 inches of rain could be expected in before the end of the week. Roads in many communities were impassable for a time Sunday afternoon and reports came in from locations throughout Pinellas about stranded vehicles. Clearwater Police report significant flooding in Clearwater Beach, and beach areas were reportedly under water due to flooding. The north end was inaccessible for a time. Flooding was reported on many side streets, including Old Coachman Road and East Enterprise Road, as well as the major thoroughfares of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and U.S. 19. Largo reported some localized flooding, which persisted into Monday. Officials said higher than normal levels in Tampa Bay, as well as along the Intracoastal Waterway, were inhibiting drainage of water from many stormwater systems. Improvement was not expected until Debby passed out of the area. Pinellas Park police said roads were flooded in several locations and that retention ponds were filled to capacity. They advised motorist to stay home unless travel was necessary. Baker said by Monday afternoon all county roads were open with only a few lingering problems on roads in low-lying areas that typically flood during heavy rains. Baker said the county had closed some roads on Sunday, most of them in northern areas of the county, including Ozona where roads were impassable to normal motor vehicles. Palm Harbor Fire Rescue reported swift, running water flowing over Lake St. George just north of Tampa Road, and Alt. U.S. 19 N. at Tampa Road. Baker said Lake St. George was no longer a problem by Monday afternoon. The Florida Highway Patrol closed I-275 south from the Pinellas Bayway due to flooding. That road remained closed Monday night. Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority suspended service on the Suncoast Beach Trolley, the Central Avenue Trolley, Route 66 and Route 19 north of Westfield Countryside Mall on Sunday. PSTA officials announced Monday morning that several routes were being detoured and that all bus services might be delayed due to flooding. Passengers are advised to check www.PSTA.net for the latest information. The American Red Cross opened one shelter in Pinellas County Sunday night at Chapel on the Hill, 12601 Park Blvd. in Seminole after the Mariners Cove Mobile Home Park in Clearwater was evacuated due to flooding. Janet McGuire, Red Cross regional communication officer, said Monday afternoon that six people had stayed at the Chapel on the Hill shelter Sunday night. She expects them to stay again Monday night, as flooding at the mobile home park has not abated enough for power to be restored. She said the Red Cross is currently looking to open additional shelters in the region as needed. This is going to be an ongoing process, she said.

The severely wounded veterans and their families had the opportunity to ride, groom and spend time with horses and their handlers. Smiles from ear to ear were the highlight of the day for everyone, as brain injured and wheelchair bound warriors, along with their children and sponsors, enjoyed riding through the field and surrounding woods. Lunch was donated by Subway of Seminole, pies were provided by Village Inn of Largo, and drinks and snacks by Sweetbay and Walmart. The day was organized by Brian Parker and other volunteers. Founded in 2003, the Wounded Warriors Program raises awareness and enlists the publics aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

It was Samuels first foul ball. He was sitting in Section 215, Row A, when the ball hit off the lights and then off his mothers knee. Also witnessing the feat were Samuels father Derek Johnson, and his grandfather Michael Johnson. Ironically, Derek and Michael had just finished recanting a story about some 25 years earlier when they were at a Boston Red Sox-Chicago White Sox game at the old Comiskey Park in Chicago when Derek got his first foul ball.Drum circle changes discussed By BOB McCLURETREASURE ISLAND Over the years, it has become a Treasure Island tradition. But in recent weeks, the Sunday night drum circle at Gulf Front Park has been getting out of control, according to city officials. Instead of just a small group enjoying the staccato beat of the drums and other instruments, the gatherings have increased in size to about 500 people who have done damage to city restrooms and often leave an abundance of garbage for city officials to clean up the following day. So with that in mind, City Commissioner Butch Ellsworth suggested June 19 that the city move quickly to either end the gatherings or regulate them more closely. Its not just kids, said Ellsworth. There are adults out there jumping around and getting injured. We need to find a way to quell the noise or make the people attending more responsible. City Recreation Director Cathy Hayduke said the events are well attended thanks to notices on various social media. But thats not the problem, she said. The problem is the next day when her department is assigned the task of making repairs to the restrooms and cleaning up large amounts of trash. Its putting a burden on my department, Hayduke said. Ellsworth said he would like to see the city take an aggressive stance on the issue. We could be looking at a lawsuit if it continues with its current fervor, he said. Treasure Island Police Chief Tim Casey said the problem is not the people playing the drums. Its all the people coming to hear it, Casey said. That presents a problem. This past weekend (June 17), we had some gang members and some wanna be gang members. recent addition of 85 feet of new sand from the nourishment project. Squires said citizen reports had indicated that sand had been lost. Squires said although it was unfortunate that sand was lost so soon after it was replenished, it was possible that the new sand might have protected areas that might have been affected if the beach had been narrower. Storm protection is one of the primary reasons for beach nourishment projects. Wider beaches create a bigger buffer between the land and rising seas and wave action that accompany hurricanes and tropical storms. Squires said after the initial inspection was complete, staff would begin actual measurements to make a determination of how much beach had been lost. But, everything will have to wait until Tropical Storm Debby is done, Squires said. The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center estimates that Debby may make landfall along the West Coast in the next couple of days. Meantime, work on the Sand Key beach nourishment project is on hold for now. Squires said work stopped June 22, due to the approach of Tropical Storm Debby. As of Monday afternoon, Squires had no estimate as to when work might begin again. We wont know until this system moves out of the area, he said. BEACHES, from page 1A

Robert William Bearlepp was charged with lewd and lascivious battery, sexual performance by a child, certain use of computer services prohibited and transmission of material harmful to a minor. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Bearlepp after he engaged the victim in sexual activity and sent her sexually explicit photos of himself via cell phone. Bearlepp was arrested at the Sheriffs Administration Building located at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo after he agreed to come in for an interview. Detectives say Bearlepp, developed a friendship and a relationship with the female victim, and engaged her in sexual activity. Detectives say Bearlepp also sent the victim sexually explicit photographs of himself via cell phone and requested she do the same. On June 20, the victim told her parents about the relationship. They in turn reported the crime to the Sheriffs Office. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit began to investigate. Detectives made contact with the suspect on June 21 at his place of employment and the suspect agreed to be interviewed at the Sheriffs Administration Building. During the interview, Bearlepp reportedly admitted to the offense and was arrested. He was subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Detectives say the crime occurred between February and June. Bearlepp is employed by a company that manufactures body lotions. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is a member of the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.14-month-old ingests methadoneLARGO A Largo woman was arrested June 18, two days after a 14-month-old boy ingested methadone while in her care. Pinellas County sheriffs detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit said that Debra Denae Barberee, 24, knew that the child had taken the drug but didnt call for help for several hours. Detectives said that when medical personnel responded, the child was unresponsive and not breathing. He was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital and later transferred to All Childrens Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition. Detectives were called to All Childrens Hospital June 17 in reference to a 14-month-old child with methadone in his system. Barberee was on probation for possession of a controlled substance until Aug. 13, 2013, detectives said. Bond was set at $5,000.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK Shortstop Sean Rodriguez and the Tampa Bay Rays helped the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast raise more than $22,000 through the third annual Lunch with the Rays fundraiser at the Pinellas Park unit June 15. Rodriguez, a former club kid, said he benefited from his association with the Boys & Girls Clubs and thanked the supporters who attended the lunch. I just want to say thank you, not just for the kids, but for me, myself, he said. I was in their shoes once, and it was because of people like you that I was able to basically get those opportunities. Rodriguez didnt attend the club in Pinellas County, but Nita Smith, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast, thanked him for being a hero the club kids could look up to. We appreciate what you represent to this organization. Thank you for adopting this organization as your own, she said. She said that the club would be granting Rodriguez, who bought property in Pinellas Park this year, honorary status as a member. You are one of us. We want to give you your official club shirt as a club kid, she said, handing over a green Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast T-shirt. Thanks so much again for being our hero and for being here for us today. Two other Rays players joined Rodriguez at the lunch, pitcher Alex Cobb and leftfielder Sam Fuld. Sportscaster Dave Wills emceed a question and answer session, asking Fuld about his injured wrist that has kept him off the field. My wrist is coming along really well. I think Im probably a little bit ahead of schedule, Fuld said, explaining that initially doctors said he could probably return to the game by mid-August. As of now, it looks like I might eclipse that mark by about month. Fuld said the last two and a half months watching from the sidelines have felt like two and a half years. But now, he said he could see the light at the end of the tunnel: a return to the game soon, if everything goes well. Todays a big day. I get to hit a ball off a tee. I get to play a little tee ball today, he said, drawing a laugh from the crowd. I dont know if you noticed, Ive got some nervous excitement. Wills also commended Cobb for remaining cool under the pressure as a starting pitcher against the New York Yankees in their home field June 6. I watched Alex Cobb go through the Yankees lineup a couple of weeks ago. It didnt even look like he was breaking a sweat. It was one of the best performances that Ive seen a Rays pitcher put together this year, Wills said. Cobb said he tried to treat every game the same, no matter how consequential. Im probably a little more nervous inside than I did look outside, he admitted. I was sweating a little bit on the inside. Wills said the Rays players were the biggest reason fans supported the team. These are three of our 25 to 40 guys that are playing here in Tampa Bay this year, and they are three of the best, he said. They are three of the reasons why the Rays are going to back to the postseason here in 2012. Though the numbers havent been finalized yet, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast raised at least $22,000 in net funds, club spokeswoman Shari Phillips said. The organization raised $1,460 through a raffle at the lunch and sold all 30 of the table centerpieces. It was through the hard work and diligent coordination of the volunteers at the Pinellas Park club that we were able to keep our expenses for the entire event at under $1,700, Phillips said. Along with the Tampa Bay Rays organization, Carrabbas Italian Grill, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Amber Glen Feed Depot and the city of Pinellas Park donated to the event. Giving Rodriguez a golf polo along with his T-shirt, Smith mentioned another potential fundraising partnership that could be in the works: a Sean Rodriguez Boys & Girls Clubs golf tournament.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays will turn back the clock to 1979 when the Detroit Tigers visit Tropicana Field on Saturday, June 30, at 7:15 p.m. The Rays have designed a hypothetical uniform from 1979 that is intended to be a lasting fixture for Rays fans, fully embracing the style of the era while keeping the Rays modern colors. A patch on the left sleeve of the jersey features a City of St. Petersburg seal that was used in 1979. Tropicana Field will be accented in a 1970s theme and Earth Wind & Fire will perform following the conclusion of the game as part of the Rays 2012 Summer Concert Series. This marks the 10th Turn Back the Clock game in Rays history. We want to thank our great partners at Majestic Athletic and Major League Baseball for helping bring this unique concept to life, said Rays senior vice president Mark Fernandez. Everyone with the Rays is excited to make this an annual event, and something Rays fans will look forward to every year with great anticipation. The Tigers will wear a uniform based on their actual 1979 road gray jersey. Versions of the select jersey were worn by Detroit from 1972 until 1993. The Tigers finished fifth in the American League East, 18 games behind the Baltimore Orioles, with an 85-76 record. That season the Tigers hired Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson during the middle of June. Anderson skippered the Tigers for the next 17 seasons, winning one pennant and one World Series title, while winning AL Manager of the Year two seasons (1984, ). The Rays retro jerseys will be auctioned off on raysbaseball.com following the game with proceeds benefitting the Moffitt Cancer Center and the Rays Baseball Foundation. Merchandise is at the Rays Team Store at Tropicana Field, Rays Pro Shop in Downtown Tampa (400 N. Tampa St.), Sports Fan Attic, Lids Locker Room and other participating retailers, or online at raysbaseball.com. Single game tickets for Rays 2012 regular season home games are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Rays Tampa Store (400 N. Tampa St.) and the Gate 1 Tropicana Field Box Office, as well as over the phone at 888-FAN-RAYS and 1-800745-3000, or online at raysbaseball.com.Debby puts a damper on area fishing actionTropical storm Debby has put a halt on the fishing for a few days now, and its certainly too early to say when things will get back to normal around here. Last week before Debby got organized in the Gulf we got a muchneeded stretch of days with east winds. The only downside was that these were some fairly stout east winds, making it too rough to do anything offshore and definitely not the greatest conditions for inshore. The only real upside is that early in the week we had some astronomical new moon tides, which for a few days really had the redfish chewing. Tarpon fishing has been slow overall. The beaches have really started to thin out and unless you braved the outgoing tide at Egmont or Anna Maria late last week, you are probably in the same boat as me. Not to worry however, their will still be plenty of tarpon to be caught this summer. Tampa Bay bridges and deep back bay holes will hold good concentrations of late summer tarpon. Target the bridges on an incoming tide with live shrimp or ladyfish. Concentrating your efforts on the up-tide shadow line will produce the best results. Back bay laid up tarpon is a whole different animal. These fish are lazy and wont move far for bait. Often dead bait on the bottom will work best, i.e. mullet, ladyfish or shad. However, these fish will strike a well-presented artificial bait as well. Top tarpon plugs are the TT series by MirroLure and the Baitbuster by D.O.A. Gag grouper season opens on the first and as long as the weather calms down you might get a chance to target both gags and red snapper this weekend. Plenty of gags can be found in shallow depths inside of 80 feet. Target natural ledges, pipeline rubble and major artificial reefs. Many of the published artificial reefs are holding good grouper as well and havent been pressured since the closure went into effect. Red snapper will be found a bit deeper. Depths of 100 feet and out will be a better bet. Bring plenty of frozen sardines and some frisky pinfish and you should be covered for both species.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Viewpoints 15A Beacon, June 28, 2012U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki often reminds us: as the tide of war recedes we have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to anticipate the needs of returning veterans. As these newest veterans return home, we must ensure that they have access to quality mental health care in order to successfully make this transition to civilian life. Last year, the VA provided specialty mental health services to more than 1.3 million veterans a 35 percent increase since 2007 in the number of veterans who received mental health services at the VA. Thats why we recently announced that the VA will add an additional 1,600 mental health staff professionals and an additional 300 support staff members nationwide, including 54 new mental health staff at the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. Currently, the Bay Pines VA employs about 210 mental health clinicians and support staff across the healthcare system, which includes the main medical center campus and satellite outpatient clinics in Bradenton, Fort Myers, Naples, Palm Harbor, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, and Sebring. These efforts to hire more mental health professionals build on our record of service to veterans. President Obama, Secretary Shinseki and the leaders of the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System have devoted more people, programs, and resources to veteran mental health services to ensure our nations heroes have immediate access to high quality mental health care. The VA has increased the mental health care budget by 39 percent since 2009. Whats more, weve increased the number of mental health staff members by 41 percent since 2007. That means today, we have a team of professionals thats 20,590 strong all dedicated to providing much needed direct mental health treatment to veterans. While we have made great strides to expand mental health care access, we have much more work to do. The men and women who have had multiple deployments over a decade of combat have carried a tremendous burden for our country. Thats why Secretary Shinseki has challenged the department to improve upon our progress and identify barriers that prevent veterans from receiving timely treatment. As we meet with veterans here, we learn firsthand what we need to do to improve access to care. Secretary Shinseki has sought out the hardest-to-reach, most underserved places from the remote areas of Alaska to inner city Philadelphia to hear directly from veterans and employees. And were taking action to reach out to those who need mental health care instead of waiting for them to come to us. Our mission is to increase access to our care and services. Weve greatly increased the number of Veterans Readjustment Counseling Centers throughout the country. Weve also developed an extensive suicide prevention program that saves lives every day. For example, our team at the Veteran Crisis Line has fielded more than 600,000 calls from veterans in need and helped rescue more than 21,000 veterans who were in immediate crisis. Thats 21,000 veterans who have been saved. The mental health of Americas veterans not only touches those of us at the VA and the Department of Defense, but also families, friends, coworkers, and people in our communities. We ask that you urge veterans in your communities to reach out and connect with VA services. To locate the nearest VA facility or Vet Center for enrollment and to get scheduled for care, Veterans can visit the VAs website at www.va.gov. Immediate help is available at www.VeteransCrisisLine.net or by calling the Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (push 1) or texting 838255. To learn more about the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, veterans can call 888-820-0230 or visit www.baypines.va.gov.Susan Klinker is director of Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. Forty years have passed, and I still miss Watergate. It was a marvelous news story, as well as a mystery tale and morality lesson, all wrapped into one. It didnt have much sex in it, but that didnt matter much when you had spies, burglaries, secret payoffs, lies, betrayal, comedy, a snitch named Deep Throat, illicit tape recordings, blackmail and the gradual, month-by-month unraveling of an attack on our Constitution by the nations highest official: a scoundrel named Richard Nixon. The most endearing virtue of the Watergate story was that, in a city where rogues routinely work their evil and then walk away scot-free, this time the bad guys (or most of them) were caught and punished. Forty of them did prison time. To follow the daily news accounts of Watergate was to watch a large, nasty can of worms turn over, with slimy creatures slithering out at an average rate of two per month. But then good finally triumphed over evil, or seemed to. I never hob-nobbed or even met any of the Watergate-era players, with one exception: Ken Clawson, who became one of Nixons press relations officials. In 1963, just as I was leaving the Toledo Blade after three years, Clawson signed on. I met him briefly, probably at a meeting of Sigma Delta Chi, the journalism fraternity. Clawson became the Blades labor reporter, and did an excellent job, from all accounts. His skills won him a Nieman fellowship at Harvard, and from there he moved on to the Washington Post and, eventually, to the White House. He described himself as one of Nixons spear carriers, and proud of it. He was reputed to have been the perpetrator of dirty tricks that helped to sink Ed Muskies hopes of becoming the 1968 Democratic presidential candidate. That honor went to George McGovern, who Nixon easily defeated. In the marvelous Watergate film, All the Presidents Men, Clawson was portrayed as begging Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein not to mention his friendship with one of the Posts female employees. His memorable defense was Ive got a wife and a family and a dog and a cat. Clawson was not convicted or even implicated in any of the Watergate shenanigans. He died of heart trouble not many years later. One of the few instances of comic relief that brightened the Watergate saga came from Martha Mitchell, wife of Nixons attorney general John Mitchell. Martha (later nicknamed The Mouth of the South) was inclined to drink a lot. When liquored up she telephoned news media and chatted about the hushhush goings on of her husband and his conniving associates. Nixon later blamed the entire Watergate mess on Martha. He said she so distracted her husband that he was unable to manage the store (i.e., the break-in and coverup). Nixon told interviewer Robert Frost that if it hadnt been for Martha, Watergate never would have happened. I loved Martha. During the Watergate affair I worked in Tampa for a company whose executives tended to be conservative in political outlook. So I revealed little of my satisfaction at watching Nixon and his gang exposed. But each evening I hustled to my home in Indian Rocks Beach in time to catch the network news and the latest Watergate revelation. During those two years I felt shame that the White House was occupied by fascist maggots, but proud that in the end they were hunted down and exterminated. My enduring conclusion is that if the USA could withstand the likes of Richard Nixon, we can withstand anyone. I hope Im right. The achievement of reporters Woodward and Bernstein in smoking out the Watergate crooks resulted in a sharp increase in journalism school enrollments. Young men and women looking for meaningful careers realized the enormous good that could come from journalists who smell a rat and then chase it down despite opposition from People in High Places. Today I find myself wondering how many of those Woodward-Bernstein recruits are still on the job. Investigative reporting is hard, expensive work and many of todays news outlets have chosen to reduce their efforts to find the rottenness that is always present in government, big business and other endeavors. But this truth remains: the loftiest role of any reporter is that of watchdog. Watergate proved that. A tragic fallout of the Watergate affair is that it almost surely cost Jerry Ford his chance to be elected president for a full term. In an attempt to heal the nations wounds, Ford granted Nixon a full pardon for his crimes. This angered millions of voters, who responded by electing Jimmy Carter. What irony: an upstanding, decent man (Ford) shows forgiveness to a bum (Nixon) and by doing so hands the presidency to a vacillating wimp (Carter). They say no kindness goes unpunished.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com.Memories of a third-rate burglaryCell phones, laptops, the Internet, play dates, prescription drugs, gangs, high-stakes texting, Facebook. I often wonder if raising a child today is easier or more difficult than when I was growing up in small towns in the 1960s. For instance, back then, if mom or dad told you to do something, you did it or else. You cleaned up your room, or else. You piped down or else. You stopped teasing the cat or else. Discipline was meted out quickly; lawyers never got involved. The rules were simple and clear: Speak when you are spoken to. Never put anything smaller than a football in your ear. Dont throw rocks at anybody. There was no need for curfews. Not much crime in Superior, Wis., at least by todays standards. Instructions to the neighborhood kids were simple: You must come in when the streetlights go on. That rule wore thin, but my brother and I obeyed it. However, I took some liberties with the rule about rocks. I tried hurling them at streetlights but never seemed to be able to hit any. We had the run of the neighborhood, keeping a safe distance from the dilapidated house where the old witch lived, exploring the nearby college campus, and yelling like Tarzan for hours. Mom also issued stern warnings or propaganda: Dont go outside without your mittens; youll catch pneumonia. Dont tease your brother; youll catch pneumonia. Dont touch the radiator; youll catch pneumonia. These days, I dont think warning about pneumonia would be considered standard parental practice to modify a childs behavior, but it seemed to work on the Germond boys. I never caught pneumonia just the German measles, mumps, chicken pox and cooties. I suspect that parents have greater challenges in the electronics age, such as making sure their children arent umbilically tied to their cell phones, especially when they are supposed to be studying. Turn that phone off; youll flunk the FCAT. Get off the Internet; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont stay out late; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont drink coffee; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont get a tattoo; youll flunk the FCAT. I didnt have modern accessories, such as cell phones, Kindles, backpacks and laptops, to take to school when I was a kid. That was probably good because I excelled at losing things that I had to carry, such as my report cards. However, I was adept at hanging on to valuable trinkets that lived in my pockets. One of those was a rabbits foot, which was supposed to ward off spells and illnesses, such as pneumonia. I guess it did the trick. I lost interest in rabbits feet about the time the Beatles came along. Dad, in particular, didnt have much use for the Fab Four. Turn down that #$% music, or else! I did, but I did not go quietly into my teenage years despite my parents best attempts to persuade me to accept their advice. You need a haircut. George, Paul, John and Ringo have long hair, and look how much money theyre making. Dad tried his hand at child psychology. What about your hero, Johnny Unitas? He has a crewcut, and hes famous. Dad had a point, but Johnny U. was getting old and teenage girls preferred the Beatles. The rites of puberty took charge of my thought process. We compromised: No crewcut, but hair could grow over my ears. Despite my rebellious tendencies, I made it through college on the seven-year plan. Not sure how I would perform under todays changing and rigorous requirements to enter college. Texting wasnt my forte. Id hate to take the FCAT, especially without a rabbits foot. 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.

Klinker VA wants to hear from veteransResearch needed on irrigationEditor: All over the city of Clearwater, reclaimed water is being put into effect in peoples neighborhoods. The city says that this new system of irrigation is cheaper and it will be better on the environment, because high quality drinking water shouldnt be used for lawn irrigation. However, most people, at least in my neighborhood, irrigate using the water from a well, so it is already free. However, it is true that there should be another way to irrigate your lawn if you dont have a well. But is no one thinking of the safety aspects of reclaimed water? There are also safety factors that play a part with reclaimed water. The city says that reclaimed water has no physical effects when coming into contact with our skin. Even so, they say that immuno-compromised persons should irrigate only when they will be inside, and that reclaimed water should not be used for recreational use involving bodily contact. That means parents wouldnt be able to fill up a kiddy pool with the hose for children to play in on a hot, summer day. They also say that vegetable gardens and other edible crops should not be watered with reclaimed water, unless they will be peeled or cooked before consumption. For example, if you have a garden with strawberries or potatoes or carrots, you cant eat them unless they are cooked. Knowing that, would you want to eat food from somebodys garden that had been watered with reclaimed water, even if it had been cooked? Last but not least, some plants cannot grow with reclaimed water. This is because of the high chloride levels in the water that are necessary to clean the water in the first place. Azaleas and Chinese privet have no tolerance for it, meaning they would die if watered with reclaimed water. There are almost 50 other common plants that would probably experience leaf burn if exposed to these high levels of chloride. If plants are dying under exposure to it, then it cant be too good for humans either. All in all, adding reclaimed water to peoples lives may not be the best idea. I agree that using another source of water other than drinking water is better for the environment. However, the solution to this problem should be safe for humans and plants to come into contact with. I think that more research should be done to find a better way to irrigate our lawns in a responsible, environmentally friendly way. I think the city is headed in the right direction, but I dont think this is the best solution. Preston Delaware ClearwaterWriter wrong about ObamaRe:Leaving the party, by Chuck Graham, May 31.Editor: Mr. Graham, you are so wrong about President Obama. He is not taking anything from the 1 percent; he is just asking them to pay their fair share. As a middle class working person, paying my fair share and just making it, why do oil companies get subsidies and large companies get tax breaks? The Republicans wont pass or let anything pass that calls for fair play on big oil making huge profits every quarter or big business companies paying smaller taxes than the middle class people. It would not be taking anything from the 1 percent and making programs that reach everyone like education (who are our future). You call for a change but what is offered is the same old trickle down business running toward another recession. All Republicans worry about is the debt for future generations. But their way is not for the elderly or the middle class. Without some help for education, we wont have to worry about debt for our future generations. Mr. Graham, the wealthy have been given a tax break for eight years, making them richer, while the middle class has not had the same break. Again, what your talents are worth was given to you. As you see Mr. Romney paying 13 percent of his money and still wanting to give bigger tax breaks and outsourcing jobs abroad. That is job killing, sir. President Obama has my vote for government programs that help education and respect seniors too!

This happens at sea too. The warmer the waters become, the more active our local bottlenose dolphins become. One form of that greater activity is the appearance of new arrivals. There are three kinds of new arrivals: dolphins we havent seen for years and dolphins were meeting for the first time. There are two kinds of dolphins to meet for the first time: adults weve never seen before and newborn babies (also known as neonates). Weve had an encouraging show of all three kinds of new arrivals thus far in 2012. This is a progress report about our tiny shiny newborns. Five new babies have made their tiny shiny appearances in a fairly steady stream over the last three months. Club gave birth in early April. She and the new baby have stayed close to home, using the same bays that Club used to raise her previous calf (born in 2004). J and Face gave birth in early May. J is very cautious with her newborn, switching from social to secretive. Weve only glimpsed them from a distance. J shepherds them up and down narrow winding passages of water created by parallel seawalls, as she did with her 2008 calf Juno. Js seawall haunting habit is good and bad. Its good because she can hunt along the seawalls while keeping the tiny baby at her side, boats motor by slowly and theres a small volume of water to monitor for danger compared to open bays (like newborns everywhere, neonatal dolphins make easy prey). Its bad because theres more stray fishing line to hook. Indeed, Js previous calf Juno was one of the three dolphins weve seen entangled in fishing line over the course of our study, and one of two whose fishing line magically vanished without human intervention. Hes out there now, feeling his way through the first treacherous weeks of life without mom and, perhaps not surprisingly, showing a penchant for seawall hunting. Face has also been very private with her newborn. During the days she uses the waters off our least developed coastlines, which includes the area where we found the body of her previous calf Falco (as told in Dolphin Watchs in a good or bad way, I darent say). During the evenings, she swims on the periphery of other dolphins who gather together at sunset, not yet ready to join the festivities directly. FM and Slightwin had babies by the middle of June. Both moms spend their time swimming very slowly with tiny shiny newborns who bob at their sides more like rubber duckies in the bathtub than slide along as the sleek capitalists of the seas. FMs previous calf Fennel, easily identified by the deep divot behind his dorsal fin, showed that local dolphins occasionally swim in family groups as he briefly reunited with his mom and new sibling the other night. Small from his fight to heal from a shark bite last year, I wish he could stay under his moms protection a little longer. Slightwins neonate is her first, making Slightwin a primipare, mom for the first time. In nearby Sarasota, a primipare returns to her mothers group as she graduates from apprentice to Photo by ANN WEAVERMother of the month-old baby bottlenose beside her, Club eyes it frankly with a backward glance. The scars between her eyes and her dorsal fin speak of the risks of life at sea.master of the art of mothering. But in Johns Pass, primipares manage mothering alone. We used to see Slightwins mom Slight several times a month. But we havent seen her for the last 10 months. I watch for her zealously, hoping her disappearance after the death of her neonate last May isnt permanent (as told in Dolphin Watchs Not a happy mothers day). We havent named any of the newborns. Superstitiously, we wait until the baby dolphin is three months old before choosing a name. Weve seen 71 newborns from 2005 to the present. Two-thirds of these are born to resident moms. One-third belongs to moms who visit our lovely local waters because they are safe nursery grounds. The annual pattern of births forms a beautiful bell curve. June is baby month, host to 38 percent of the newborns. Over 75 percent of our local babies are born in May, June and July. Clubs April baby was an early arrival and September babies are late arrivals. We had bumper crops of babies in 2008 and 2011. It will be interesting to see what happens with the reproductive status of our local bottlenose dolphins throughout the rest of the summer, and I will keep you posted.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Beacon, June 28, 2012 Obituaries Marjorie Belle Pollock BARGER83, passed away June 16, 2012 in Salem, Va. Marj, and her husband Bruce, moved with their youngest child, David, to Largo, Fla. in 1981. Marjorie earned an art degree from Colby Sawyer College in New Hampshire in 1948 and continued to improve her artistic skills by studying with local artists. She was invited to join Studio 1212, Inc. in 1993. Her extensive travels around the world with her mother provided rich subject matter as she began exhibiting and winning awards for her work. Although her pieces ranged from oil to acrylics to miniatures, she grew to prefer working in pastels and pencils. In 2001, Marj received a diagnosis of Alzheimers disease and they moved to Virginia two years later to be near family. As the fog of dementia slowly blanketed Marjs memories, she remained a cheerful, pleasant and loving person. She is sadly missed by all who knew her. She is predeceased by her parents, Walter and Marjorie Pollock, her brother, Kenneth Pollock and husband, Bruce. She is survived by her children, Betsey Barger of Roanoke, Va.; Carol Buriak and husband, Jim, of Salem, Va.; Bruce Barger and wife, Kelly, of Johnstown, Pa.; David Barger and wife, Kinbly, of St. Augustine, Fla. and grandchildren, Bruce, Jonathan and David Barger, and Jim and Laura Buriak. Private funeral arrangements have been made in Virginia by the family. Contributions can be made to the Marjorie Pollock Barger Memorial Fund found at: alz.org. to benefit the Alzheimers Association.

Amanda from Third Stage in 1986 shot to the top of the charts and held a record-breaking stay at No. 1, in spite of being the only hit single that year not accompanied by a music video. With more than 31 million albums sold worldwide, hits like Peace of Mind, Smokin and Rock & Roll Band are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new.

The tour is being produced by Dave Hart and fans can expect to hear hits including Starrs own classics such as It Dont Come Easy, Photograph, Little Help From My Friends, and Yellow Submarine. The aptly titled Brave explores and embodies courage with a clever, if not completely original, storyline. Visually, the film follows Pixars long tradition of exceptional CGI animation, delivering a feisty barrage of action sequences punctuated by gorgeous highland scenery. Disney/Pixars Brave tells the tale of teenage princess Merida, daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor of Scotland. The queen grooms Merida for betrothal while Merida dreams of ignoring longhonored customs and shaping her own destiny. When the times comes for the unruly lords of the land to sponsor their heirs in a competition for Meridas hand in marriage, the princess takes a stand against tradition and her mothers aspirations. In many ways, Brave is more Disney than Pixar. With the release of Disney/Pixars Brave, the studio continues to trend away from the damsel-in-distress motif by promoting strong female protagonists. The evolution began with the 2009 Disney theatrical animated feature The Princess and the Frog, which featured Tiana, a female lead with a neurotically strong work ethic, and Prince Naveen, a playboy prince estranged from his royal family lacking any real sense of responsibility. Then, in 2010s Tangled, Rapunzel is rescued by the less-than-perfect male lead Flynn Rider, but the princess reciprocates by repeatedly saving Flynn and, ultimately, inspiring him to become noble to the point of self-sacrifice. But Brave improves further upon the theme, setting up Merida as the single lead protagonist of the story. Her princely prospects play only a minimal part in the plot and are depicted as dim-witted, impotent and unintelligible. Regrettably, the story occasionally borrows from classic Disney devices to propel the plot. Merida, desperate to circumvent a compulsory engagement, turns to a witch as a means to alter her fate. The act somehow diminishes the characters inner strength, making her seem prone to irrational decisions when under duress. The silver lining to this black cloud is that the witch is not the usual Disney crone she is fickle and flighty and, in her own way, seems to be driven by good intentions. Meridas deal with the witch not only changes her destiny but also has wide-reaching repercussions. The key component is a transforma-Brave offers charming fairy tale Photos courtesy of DISNEY/PIXARFrom left, Queen Elinor, King Fergus and Merida sit in the throne room in the Disney/Pixar film Brave. tion that is a bit too reminiscent of Disneys 2003 animated film Brother Bear. Merida must work to undo this beastly curse involving her mother. Again, while the plot device is clich, what springs from it is innovative: It isnt often that Disney spends so much time exploring mother-daughter relationships in these types of films. The ensemble voice cast helps Brave succeed as both humorous comedy and a thrilling fantasy-adventure. Kelly Macdonald provides the voice of Merida. It is difficult to imagine anyone other than Billy Connolly voicing King Fergus. Queen Elinor is voiced by Emma Merida follows a will-o'-the-wisp in the Disney/Pixar film Brave.

Other voice actors include Kevin McKidd (Lord MacGuffin), Craig Ferguson (Lord Macintosh), Robbie Coltrane (Lord Dingwall) and Julie Walters (the witch). Judging Brave alongside other Pixar films, it meets expectations in that it is spectacularly animated. Still, it falls short of the overall enchantment of Pixar classics it lacks the heart of Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. and it doesnt quite achieve the feverish pacing of The Incredibles and Toy Story. As a Disney film, Brave is innovative and enterprising. A strong, self-reliant heroine is long overdue, and Merida fits the bill flawlessly. Even with its minor faults, Brave is a gutsy and thoroughly entertaining addition to the Disney/Pixar canon.
