The city will purchase the former Jesses Landing property from the Trust For Public Land for $700,000, which is $150,000 less than the value according to the Pinellas County Property Appraisers office. The deal is contingent on a closing by July 31. This property has water access to Long Bayou and represents the possibility for many recreational activities, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The Trust For Public Land is buying the land from the bank (BB&T) with the intent of selling it to a public entity. Weve done this in the past with the Hutchinson property (at 104th Lane and 70th Avenue). Edmunds said recreational options at the site could include a canoe/kayak launch, playground, volleyball and tennis courts, and an exercise course. Funding will come from: $215,000 from the Capital Improvement Projects fund. $400,000 from undesignated reserves. Penny for Pinellas funds. To offset the expense, the city has applied for a $200,000 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Land and Water Conservation Fund that, if approved, will be used to replenish money withdrawn from the Capital Improvements Projects Fund or reserves. Edmunds said an environmental study of the site See JESSES LANDING, page 4A By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE In the months to come, residents should see some visible improvements to the St. Petersburg College property at the southwest corner of 102nd Avenue and 113th Street. SPC officials announced June 26 they have received two $20,000 matching grants from the Southwest Florida Water Management District that will generate a total of $80,000 for wetlands restoration of about 60 acres north of the school campus. The area is bounded by 113th Street to the east, 102nd Avenue to the north and Ridge Road to the west. Speaking before the Seminole City Council, Jim Waechter, director of facilities services at SPC, said upgrades to the schools Natural Habitat Park would be done in two phases beginning next fall and into the winter. We could combine both of the phases and do all of the work at once, Waechter said. For each $20,000 grant, the school will match $20,000 in both phases. The way it is working out, Waechter said, SPC will likely receive both allocations from SWFWMD about the same time. Waechter said Swiftmud officials were so impressed with SPCs phase one plans, they came back and offered SPC the additional grant for the second phase. Plans call for replanting of natural species consisting of trees, understory and ground cover. The trees, which will eventually grow to about 40 or 50 feet in height, will include Dahoon holly, red maple and southern magnolia, among others.Photo by BOB McCLURESt. Petersburg College plans an $80,000 wetlands restoration project at its Natural Habitat Park in Seminole. See SPC, page 4ADebby wreaks havoc on beaches Photo by BOB McCLUREChapel on the Hill pastor Gabe Oberholzer displays a glass sword he was given by a church member after he was sworn in June 11 as a U.S. citizen.Welcome to AmericaLong road to U.S. citizenship comes to fruition for church pastor By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE The seed was initially planted in 1985 when Gabe Oberholzer first gave thought to immigrating to the United States. It was a passing thought at the time but it continued to grow. Three weeks ago, the 55-year-old pastor of Chapel on the Hill, 12601 Park Blvd., saw it become reality when he took the oath as a naturalized U.S. citizen. It ended a lengthy 8-year, 8-month emotional roller coaster that started in 2003 when he first began the process of emigrating from South Africa to America. It was well worth it, said the 6-foot, 5-inch minister. My family is here, we all have jobs, we live in freedom and were happy. Gabes big day was June 11 a day he will never forget. There were a lot of emotions that day, he said. It was a total mix of everything. On one side there was the sadness of giving up your past, giving up your roots. On the flip side, there was the feeling of happiness and the feeling of freedom. The next day he quickly registered to vote and the following day he applied for a U.S. passport that he should receive within a couple of weeks. A celebration followed the following Sunday at the church that was highlighted by a presentation from a church member who presented Oberholzer with a glass sword. The sword included the colors of the U.S. flag and the handle included the head of an eagle. He told me freedom is fragile. Glass can break, said Oberholzer. The eagle symbolizes strength and the sword symbolizes freedom, which needs to be defended. It was an extremely powerful moment for me. The popular pastor has been in the business for 30 years. After graduating in 1982 from a seminary in Pretoria, South Africa, he was assigned to a Dutch Reformed Church with 1,500 members and later led a congregation at a church with about 1,000 members. My ex-wife was a physical therapist and she received numerous calls to work in the U.S., but she had no interest, Oberholzer said. Then, in 2000, he and his family made their first visit to the U.S. to St. Augustine. Oberholzer made connections with the Presbyterian Church-USA but for reasons unknown to him his application to become a pastor was never accepted. Then in 2003, an old friend of mine in New Smyrna Beach, said why dont you try the United Church of Christ, Oberholzer said. He did and after a 26-month immigration process with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Oberholzer and his family arrived in Atlanta on Nov. 30, 2005, assigned to a United Church of Christ congregation in Pomona Park, Fla., just outside of St. Augustine. Two weeks later, he received his Green Card, identifying him as a permanent legal alien.It took 26 months of waiting in South Africa for this to happen, Oberholzer said. Your fate is in the hands of someone See OBERHOLZER, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERIt could have been worse still the effects of Tropical Storm Debby leave a stark reminder of the importance of Pinellas Countys beaches. Dr. Ping Wang with the University of South Floridas Geology Department released his initial field observations June 26 from a June 25 inspection of area beaches. June 25th is the second day of impact by the energetic conditions association with Tropical Storm Debby along Pinellas County Beaches, Wang writes. High waves and elevated water levels of two to three feet above predicted levels are causing severe beach erosion. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala told commissioners at their June 26 meeting that early reports showed very widespread damage along the beaches. He said he had talked to staff at Congressman Bill Youngs office about the problem. Andy Squires, Pinellas Countys coastal manager, said he had already met with the Army Corps of Engineers. Squires said a full damage report would not be available until the sand is measured at all locations. LaSala said staff was looking for help from federal and state sources for all county beaches from Fort De Soto and St. Pete Beach north to Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island and Fred Howard Park. Officials want to get the current nourishment project in progress on Sand Key Beach completed as designed, despite the regression caused by the tropical storm. Work on the nourishment project at Sand Key Beach was halted June 22 due to high winds. Squires was not sure when it would resume. In his report, Wang said the freshly nourished beach appears to be holding up reasonably well, although serious ponding was noted, especially in areas not yet completed.Wang said most areas with wider pre-storm beaches fared better than those that were narrow.

PETE BEACH After watching a video on the JetLev, Jason Koch of St. Petersburg had a dream of proposing marriage to his girlfriend, Julia Ladnova, on the JetLev. A month later, a TradeWinds Living Social deal for the JetLev came out and he called TradeWinds with his idea. He thought the JetLev fit him and Julia perfectly. After all, it was fun, adventurous and extreme. John Thee, the resorts water sports manager, loved the idea. He and his team instantly put into play how they could pull off the proposal. On the day of the June 10 proposal, Jason created a scavenger hunt for Julia, which led her to some of their favorite places. The final note she got told her to go home, change into her swimsuit and make her way to TradeWinds for the ride of her life. Julia came to TradeWinds with her parents and brother in tow, not having a clue what was going on. Then she found out she was about to ride on a JetLev. While Julia was having fun on the JetLev, Jason, donned in a full tuxedo, hitched a ride on a Jetski out to the boat and snuck on without Julia seeing. He proceeded to lay out flowers along the boat and as Julia stepped up the ladder of the boat, Trains Marry Me, started playing from portable speakers. A little confused at first, Julia finally noticed Jason and was immediately teary-eyed and all smiles. With the JetLev pack still strapped on to her, Jason got on one knee and proposed. Whether its taking our first step onto a JetLev, or watching our future kids take their first steps, I want to take this journey, this adventure of a lifetime with you. Julia, will you marry me? Julia said yes and the two embraced and slow-danced for the rest of the song. They planned to be married June 29 in Daugavpils, Latvia.

Briey4ASEB Beacon, July 5, 2012would be conducted prior to the sale closing. The cost of the study would be split between the city and the Trust. Thus far, weve seen no evidence of hazardous waste, said Edmunds. In the past portions of the site were used as a land fill for construction debris. Previous studies have indicated its nonhazardous. Councilor Thomas Barnhorn asked if the area could be used for the long-awaited city skateboard park. Edmunds said that could be a possibility. In November, city councilors denied a request for changes in zoning and the citys Future Land Use Map that would have allowed for the construction of a WaWa gasoline station and food store. The FLUM was originally amended in 2003 from commercial general to residential low medium to accommodate a proposed 66-unit townhome development. However, that project never materialized and the site was changed back to commercial general in 2008 to accommodate another proposal for a small hotel, restaurant and upscale retail. The most recent change was contingent on the developer working out an agreement with Home Depot to grant public access to 104th Lane, a private roadway that runs beside the east side of the home improvement store and is owned by the retailer. That didnt happen. In other action, councilors: Approved spending $22,774 to purchase a 2012 Ford F-150 extended cab pickup truck. It will replace a 2004 model. Authorized Edmunds to enter into an agreement with Ashbritt Inc., for emergency debris management and disaster recovery services. This is a service we hope we never use, said Edmunds. However, we are required to have this in place in the event of an emergency event to be repaid by FEMA. Edmunds said Ashbritt has a wealth of experience nationally of going out and cleaning up after a weather event. The agreement does not require any up front expense by the city.Budget hearing setEdmunds said the city would conduct its first workshop on the proposed fiscal 2013 budget on Tuesday, July 17, 6 p.m. The city is expected to adopt a preliminary millage rate at the July 24 City Council meeting. The proposed $14.85 million budget is $897,000 less than the current budget with no millage increase. Weve accomplished this with a team approach by all department heads working together, said Edmunds. He said the citys energy efficiency measures are saving about $80,000 per year. Edmunds said a smaller amount of proposed capital expenditures also contributed to a smaller budget. Essentially, its a status quo budget and maintains our current level of service, said Edmunds. Two years ago, the city established a tax stabilization fund from a surplus in revenue. Edmunds said $50,000 of that amount would be used to balance the budget in 2013. JESSES LANDING, from page 1AThe schools Natural Habitat Park and Environmental Center supports various SPC curriculum and offers recreational opportunities for the community. Developed in collaboration with the city of Seminole, the project was primarily funded with a Department of Housing and Urban Development grant. It features a 200-yard boardwalk, a 50-seat teaching pavilion, a floating dock for use in water sampling, and a butterfly and sculpture garden. According to the school website, it features nearly 200 kinds of bird species, 24 species of dragonflies, 24 species of frogs, turtles, snakes, and alligators; seven species of butterflies, rabbits, otters, opossums, raccoons, armadillos, slash pines, wax myrtle shrubs, sweetgum trees, sand live oaks, red bay trees, grape vines and leather ferns. SPC, from page 1Aelse. They wanted all kinds of information about you, clear down to my underwear size. The process included a formal interview at the U.S. Embassy in Johannesburg and once approved, he was given six months to arrive in the U.S. Oberholzer didnt waste any time. He was there in three weeks. Oberholzer spent three years in Pomona Park, building the congregation from 52 members to about 75, before moving in late 2008 to Chapel on the Hill where he now oversees a congregation of about 200. In February, he began the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. After producing photographs and fingerprints for USCIS officials, he was called in for a face-to-face interview and testing. They ask you questions (about American history) that most Americans cant answer, Oberholzer said. Once he passed and it was determined he could read English, he had to prove he could write English as well. I had to write The people elect Congress, he said. Ill never forget that. Two days later he received notification he was approved and was invited to the oath ceremony in Tampa. Unfortunately, he was in California at the time and had to postpone the big day to June 11. So now Im an American and it feels good, Oberholzer beamed. But it came at a cost, he said. I dont think Ill ever recover from the financial cost of the process, he said. It costs $800 alone to apply to be a citizen but in my case there was a lot of flying five people back and forth across the Atlantic. It cost a lot of money. There was an emotional cost too. It cost me my marriage of 32 years, Oberholzer added. But we did it the right way and without the support of the churches, it would have been more difficult. Members at the Chapel like Oberholzer a lot. We have people who will walk on hot coals for this man, said Doris Berry, who works as a volunteer in the church office. He came in and hit the ground running. When you see someone working hard, it makes you want to work hard. Its infectious. But most importantly, hes a super person and a kind person. Oberholzer is very big on community outreach. After becoming pastor at the Chapel, he personally visited every member of the church. Most recently, he brokered an agreement with the American Red Cross for the church to act as a refugee shelter. During Tropical Storm Debby, the church provided emergency services for nine residents of Mariners Cove Mobile Home Park in Largo who were forced to evacuate due to flooding. Its just a way of serving the community, said Oberholzer. If a church doesnt serve its community, its nothing more than a country club. Since arriving on the scene in 2008, he has transformed the churchs worship services into fun but meaningful gatherings. Our motto is When was the last time you had fun in church? said Oberholzer. Were not hellfire and brimstone, and youre allowed to think for yourself here. It was that type of thinking that led to his arrival in the U.S. and his eventual U.S. citizenship. July 4 will have special meaning to me as far as new freedom and new independence, he said. OBERHOLZER, from page 1ACity OKs Do Not Block pavement markings By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Motorists driving along 102nd Avenue will soon see pavement markings demanding they Do Not Block two intersections along the oftencrowded thoroughfare. After tabling the proposal May 22, the City Council voted unanimously June 26 to spend up to $2,000 for large white letters to be painted on the pavement reminding motorists to DO NOT BLOCK intersections at the entrance to Thurston Groves and at 119th Street. Motorists heading west on 102nd Avenue will see the markings at the entrance of Thurston Groves, said Public Works Director Jeremy Hockenbury. Those headed east will see the reminder at 119th Street, he said. The painted message is not intended so much to help motorists trying to egress onto 102nd Avenue but to help travelers on 102nd make turns into nearby neighborhoods. Its consistent with federal guidelines for pavement markings, City Manager Frank Edmunds said. Its intended to encourage the public not to block the intersection. Edmunds said the issue is compounded during winter months when the Pinellas Trail is more heavily used and a traffic light at the Trail and 102nd backs up auto traffic even more. Councilor Bob Matthews said he still favored installing a traffic light at 119th Street, but that option would be much more expensive as high as $300,000, he estimated. Im still for a light, said Matthews. Im OK with whatever we try but the intent is to do what is best for the community. I think we should spend $300,000 for a light if thats the best thing for the community. Councilor Thomas Barnhorn said the pavement markings are a good decision during a tight budget year. If we dont have $300,000, at least were doing something rather than putting it off to a point later in time, Barnhorn said. When you consider $1,800 vs. $300,000, it (pavement markings) is very important to try. The roadway is maintained by Pinellas County but safety regulations and speed limits are set by the city.dune and beach scarping along most of the beaches he inspected, except those with widths of more than 150 feet. Wang said it wasnt clear why scarps were not developed along the wider beaches. Beach or dune scarp generally describes a very steep (nearly 90-degree) slope, somewhat like a sea cliff, except it is made of loose sand instead of solid rocks, Wang said in an email. The scarp is created when waves or wave-generated current erodes and creates a notch at the toe of the dune or dry beach. The continued scour at the notch causes the sand to collapse due to gravity and forms the scarp (or sand cliff), Wang said. The scarp height, or the top of the scarp, shows where the beach and dune was before the wave action took the sand away. The notch illustrates the scour of wave actions, which subsequently causes the collapse of the dune and dry beach above the notch, and subsequently forms the scarp (sand cliff), Wang said. This particular process, the continued notching (at the toe) and subsequent collapsing of the beach and dune, is an aggressive form of beach erosion during the storm. The sand that falls off the cliff is typically moved offshore during these storms, pushing the scarp landward. Wang included a number of photos with his report and many depicted continuous scarping over long expanses. Wang reported several places where storm waves were crashing onto the seawall, including Upham Beach, the end of Sand Key Beach where nourishment has not yet taken place, and Belleair Shore. Wangs report identified the top four beach sections with the most severe erosion. 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. Other damage noted includes continuous beach or dune scarp at Indian Rocks Beach and sections of North Redington Beach with severe erosion and nearly continuous dune scarp. Wang notes that some of the dune scarps are up to 6 feet in height. Not all the news was bad. A portion of North Redington Beach still has a wide area of sand with only limited beach and dune scarping. The middle section of Long Key, which was quite wide pre-storm, shows no beach or dune scarp. The southern section of Upham Beach and the middle section of Treasure Island Beach still have a wide beach with no scarping. Squires said Wang and his team would be back out on the beaches taking measurements as soon as the effects of Tropical Storm Debby were gone. He expects final reports in a few weeks. Possible interlocal agreementLaSala told commissioners June 26 that he is planning to talk with the Barrier Island Governmental Council about a possible interlocal agreement on beach nourishment. We need to be responsive to each other to ensure our beaches continue to be nourished, he said. Storm protection is one of the primary reasons for beach nourishment projects. Wider the beaches create a bigger buffer between the land and rising seas and wave action that accompany hurricanes and tropical storms. Beach nourishment is paid for with federal, state and local funding. Local funding comes from the third penny of the tourist development (bed) tax.

The 86,000 store opened in 1980 under former store owner and current Seminole mayor Jimmy Johnson. It has been a retail mainstay in the city for over 30 years. A (Kmart) human resources team showed up last Friday (June 29) and called all of the employees back to the lounge where they made the announcement, Johnson said. Johnson said the store lease has been purchased but he did not know by whom. He said the store has 77 employees. The thing that bothers me most is the loss of jobs, said Johnson. Gretchen Cain, chief of operations for the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, said the decision to close the store could be a positive move overall for the Seminole Mall. We think it could be a good thing, she said. It could open the shopping center to new opportunities. Were looking at it as a positive thing. The mall is currently in foreclosure. In addition to Kmart, other anchor stores in the mall include Bealls and Ross. A Publix store that was once located in the mall moved across 113th Street into a former Albertsons store in early 2009. Downtown Seminole LLC, a group of local and nationwide investors, purchased the mall in December 2006 for $35.7 million but fell into financial problems when the economy went sour. About a year later. The 424,042-square-foot mall is located on 39 acres at the northeast corner of Park Boulevard and 113th Street. The facility was originally built in 1965 and renovated in 1992.

So., LargoProfessional CompassionateU.S. Army VeteranI will explain so that you understand Editors note: A series of stories and photos about the countys centennial that will run in Tampa Bay Newspapers in ensuing months begins today. The series continues on July 19. By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County was a very different place 100 years ago. In 1912, there were no paved roads. No bridges across Tampa Bay. Automobiles were few. Electricity was a new convenience, making its way to the local area in 1897. Telephone service began in 1898. Thanks to the arrival of the Orange Belt Railroad in 1887-88, the tiny peninsula located between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay was growing fast. The population in 1912 was 13,193 an increase of 10,621 from the 2,572 reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 1900. The countys earliest census count in 1890 shows a population of 601. The peninsula named from the Spanish Punta Pial (Point of Pines or Piney Point) was part of Hillsborough County. Formed in 1834, Hillsborough was a huge county, encompassing land that would later be divided into Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, De Soto, Hardee, Highlands and lastly, Pinellas counties. The 280-square-mile area that would become Pinellas was known as Western Hillsborough. The county seat was in Tampa a land trip of at least a couple of days depending on the weather. The easiest way to get there was by boat or ferry. Historical accounts of road conditions are dismal with a consensus that travel was difficult by team or automobile. According to Karl H. Grismer, they had to follow a trail which zigzagged around swamps and swales and through the pine lands. In places, the sand was deep; in other places, wheels sank hub deep in the mud. During the rainy season, the travel was often impossible for months at a time. The historian relates a story about a group of motorists who left Tampa for St. Petersburg in 1907 on a journey that would take three and one-half days. Western Hillsborough citizens were cut off from the seat of government and rarely had representation in how taxpayer money was spent. People became resentful because the money they sent to Tampa stayed in Tampa. Rapid growth on the peninsula required better infrastructure, in particular roads and bridges. The coming of the automobile is credited with paving the way toward Western Hillsboroughs independence. As more automobiles made it to the peninsula, the need for better roads became paramount. When Hillsborough County failed to meet the needs of its western-most citizens, talk of secession began. County leaders tried to show their willingness to provide by building a graded shell road from Tampa to Ozona in 1906, but that move only incited the anger of the bulk of the countys population located further south. Hillsborough also built a bridge across Long Bayou, but according to one historian, the bridge collapsed as soon as it was finished and was never rebuilt, which added more fuel to the secessionists fire. W.L. Straub, editor of the St. Petersburg Times, wrote an editorial on Feb. 23, 1907, which was referred to at the time as the Pinellas Declaration of Independence. Straub urged newspaper readers and state legislators to support a plan to grant Pinellas County its freedom. Four years later, on May 23, 1911, Gov. Albert Gilchrist signed the Pinellas Independence Bill, which allowed Pinellas County to become the states 48th county. Six months after, on Nov. 4, 1911, the peninsulas voters approved the plan, 1,379 to 505, and on Jan. 1, 1912, Pinellas County was a reality.Constitutional officers appointedGilchrist appointed all the constitutional officers as well as the county commissioners. He picked C.W. Wiecking of St. Petersburg to serve as clerk of the court. Marvel Whitehurst of Ozona was appointed the countys first sheriff. Thomas J. Northrup of St. Petersburg became the tax assessor, and Eli B. McMullen of Largo was appointed the tax collector. The countys treasurer was A.C. Turner of Clearwater. Supervisor of elections was Albert S. Meares of Anona.First Pinellas County CommissionThe countys first five-man commission included some of the countys most notable leaders. Soloman Smith Coachman, Jefferson T. Lowe, Oliver T. Railsback, Levin D. Vinson and Frank A. Wood first met in the Citrus Exchange Building on Cleveland Street in Clearwater on Jan. 2, 1912. Near the end of the commissioners two-year appointed term, in September 1914, a grand jury was convened due to accusations of mismanagement of road bonds. There were charges of nepotism and favoritism and awarding of contracts without advertisement. Commissioners were said to have formed individual control over the districts they represented. The grand jury found insufficient evidence and the charges were dropped. However, changes were made to lengthen commissioners terms to four years and the next round of commissioners were elected countywide.The courthouse controversyHistorical accounts show little evidence that there was much spirit of cooperation amongst the appointed leaders of the fledgling county with dissention from the get-go over where the county seat should be located. The legislative bill designated Clearwater as the county seat. Commissioners from St. Petersburg, Wood and Railsback, wanted it located in St. Petersburg. However, the three commissioners representing what was referred to as Upper Pinellas were able to out-vote the two from the lower half. Soon after, the city of Clearwater offered the new county land on which to build its courthouse. But the controversy over the courthouses location continued into March. In April, St. Petersburg residents presented a petition calling for a referendum to decide the matter. The motion was voted down, 3-2, with commissioners from North County again outvoting their southern counterparts. Meanwhile, the St. Petersburg commissioners decided to take their case to the state Supreme Court. In May, a bid for $3,750 was accepted, 3-2, to build the two-story courthouse on the land offered by the city of Clearwater. About a month later, the court-Jan. 1, 1912 A county is born from controversy house was complete. In 1913, the mayor of St. Petersburg, Noel Mitchell, offered land at 45th Street and First Avenue North as a site for the courthouse. He called the area Mitchells Courthouse Subdivision. But his efforts came too late. In February 1916, voters approved a referendum, 485-439, to spend $160,000 for a new courthouse and jail. The matter was put to rest in March 1917, when the state Supreme Court ruled that a city with a courthouse and ample railroads could remain the county seat 20 years after the countys inception. History shows that the fighting didnt end with the courthouse, roads were the next sticking point and Lower Pinellas residents complained that Upper Pinellas was no better than Hillsborough County in meeting their needs. In 1913, the Pinellas County Board of Trade formed and was charged with the job of taking care of county building interests. The boards road committee soon began work on a plan to solve the countys transportation problems. The result was the countys first system of paved roads, when voters approved a $715,000 bond issue for construction of 75 miles of brick roads. The project was finished in 1917. Clearwater voters approved a $10,000 bond issue in 1916 to build a wooden bridge connecting it to Clearwater Beach. That same election gave women the right to vote, making the city the first in the state to do so. The bridge was completed in 1917, giving rise to development activities on the barrier islands. The first bridge to Pass-A-Grille was completed in 1919. It was a toll bridge constructed by W.G. McAdoo, who developed his property into a resort on the northern part of the island about five miles north of Pass-A-Grille. McAdoo called his resort St. Petersburg Beach. The first bridge to span Tampa Bay was the Gandy Causeway in 1924. It shortened the traveling distance between St. Petersburg and Tampa from 43 to 19 miles. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge opened in 1954 providing a link with Manatee County. One other notable transportation accomplishment of the time was the first scheduled airline flight from St. Petersburg to Tampa by aviator Tony Jannus, who made the 23-minute trip in his 26-foot seaplane Jan. 1, 1914. In the first three months, about 1,200 passengers flew on the St. Petersburg Tampa Airport Line. Soon after, business declined and the service was halted.The makeup of the countyAt the time Pinellas became a county, it consisted of several communities, mostly along the railroad line, and huge areas of undeveloped land. Several towns were already incorporated, including Tarpon Springs in 1887, Clearwater in 1891, St. Petersburg in 1892, Dunedin in 1899, Largo in 1905, Gulfport in 1910, Pass-A-Grille in 1911 and Pinellas Park slightly after in 1913 and Safety Harbor in 1917. Unincorporated communities included Oldsmar, Sutherland (Palm Harbor), Ozona, Crystal BeachWall Springs, Seminole-Oakhurst, mainland Indian Rocks, Harbor Bluffs and Anclote.The area continued its rapid growth and expansion with St. Petersburg leading the way via an 804 percent population increase, from 1,575 to 14,237, in 10 years time. Clearwater grew by 608 percent from 343 to 2,427. The county itself gained just over 20,000 residents in the 10-year period from 1910 to 1920, growing in population from 8,057 to 28,265.

The same day, however, the season will close in state waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties. The harvest will end Oct. 31. Gag grouper caught in state and federal waters during the Julythrough-October season may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop in and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The four-county region includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) manages marine fish from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The FWC is working with Floridas anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico to strong, sustainable levels. The Commission established these seasons at its February meeting. The regional season was set for 2012 only and was established to provide fishing opportunities for private, recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept. To learn more about these management changes, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and Gulf Grouper for frequently asked questions and answers.Send us your fishing photosSEMINOLE Got a trophy catch youd like the world to see?

Waters begin to clear following the exit of DebbyWith Tropical storm Debby in our rear-view mirror, the water is cleaning up both inshore and off. Fishing last week after the storm was tough to say the least; Ive never seen the water as dirty as it was. Lucky for us we are on a full moon phase and the combination of light winds and strong tides has helped to restore good clean water to our area. Some of the most productive fishing this time of year happens around our pass jetties. These massive structures will hold all kinds of bait, making them a natural stopping point for just about any predator that swims by. Current is usually always present and fish like snook and tarpon will stage up and wait for their meals to come to them, so free-lining your baits with the current makes for a deadly presentation. Redfish also can be found working the bottom part of the water column. A good-sized pinfish or a chunk of crab weighted on the bottom makes for a pretty attractive offering. Trout, Spanish mackerel and a few other species can be targeted over deep patches of grass throughout the Intracoastal Waterway. Find clean moving water in anywhere from 3to 6-feet of water depending on the tide) and you should be in the right location. With the abundance of micro baits schooling in the same areas, active spots will often be given away by dipping turns. You can cast soft plastic jigs in silver or gold glitter all day as well as a top-water plug in the lower light conditions. Shark fishing also can be a good option this time of year, especially when youre taking kids fishing. Small blacktip sharks can be found roaming the bottom in many deep cuts throughout the Intracoastal Waterway. Almost any cut bait will work when targeting these pup sharks, but oily baits like mullet, shad or ladyfish seem to work best. Be sure to take a couple of chum blocks to help attract the sharks. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.State officials to keep recreational snook harvest closedThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has voted to keep the recreational harvest of snook in Gulf of Mexico waters closed for another year to offer the species additional protection after a 2010 cold kill detrimentally affected the population. The decision came at the June 28 Commission meeting in Palm Beach Gardens after staff presented an updated stock assessment that showed snook populations are improving in the Atlantic and are not in biological jeopardy in the Gulf. The next assessment is due in 2015. If we have a bad winter this year, we will benefit from this caution; if we dont have a bad winter, we will let all these breeding fish come through the slot, said vice chairman Kenneth Wright, referring to the snook slot limit of 28 to 33 inches in Gulf of Mexico waters. Well really have done something good and well have protected some of these fish. The recreational snook season was closed in Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic waters by executive order on Jan.16, 2010, after the cold kill. The FWC manages snook in both state and federal waters, though the species tends to inhabit the shallower, near-shore state waters. The effects of the cold kill were less severe on the Atlantic coast, where the normal season reopened for harvest Sept. 1, 2011. The Gulf of Mexico recreational season was to reopen this year on Sept. 1, but is expected to reopen Sept. 1, 2013. Catch-and-release of snook will be allowed during the closure. In the Atlantic, the season will remain unchanged. Annual closures in the Atlantic are from Dec. 15 through Jan. 31 and from June 1 through Aug. 31. There is no commercial harvest for snook in Florida. Snook are one of Floridas premier game fish, and anglers often practice catch-and-release techniques when targeting this species. When planning to release snook, proper handling techniques ensure the best chance of survival. This includes returning the fish to the water as quickly as possible; using wet hands to handle the fish; supporting its weight in a horizontal position when the fish is out of the water; not holding the fish by the gill plate, eye or jaw; and reviving the fish if necessary by running it through the water head-first to allow water to flow over its gills.

Now, it seems you cant watch the nightly news without witnessing another wild animal encounter in the city. Take the rash of sightings of Florida black bears. In the past few months, theyve ambled down black tar streets in Miami, taken dips in backyard pools in Orlando and climbed trees in Tampa. The good news is that Floridas black bears have made a comeback from about 300 in the 1970s, to about 3,000 today. The bad news is that the state received more than 4,000 calls last year about bears in urban settings. Bears require large, intact tracts to survive. An adult bear can roam more than 100 miles looking for a mate or food saw palmetto berries, acorns and insects. But because of Floridas sprawling growth, many inevitably stumble into urban areas, are killed on roads or seek refuge in neighborhood trees until wildlife officers can shoot them with dart guns and move them. Bears are peaceful. They are omnivores. Florida has not recorded one black bear attack in its history. But when bears roam neighborhoods looking for food, they are considered a nuisance. One of the worst problem areas is around the Ocala National Forest, home to about 1,200 bears. Increasingly, its bears have been showing up in the neighborhoods of Orlando. A study shows about 13 percent have healed fractures, most likely from being struck by cars. Without wildlife corridors for bears to travel, conservationists worry they will become genetically isolated and eventually, extinct. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is working with wildlife groups on a plan to preserve and manage our states bear population. The plan, which is expected to be approved at a meeting June 27-28 in West Palm Beach, calls for establishing wildlife corridors to reconnect isolated bear populations. It also calls for removing the black bear from the threatened species list, though it will remain illegal to kill them. And the plan calls for creating Bear Smart Communities that help governments and neighborhoods better prepare for bear sightings and reduce the number of bears hurt or killed. Who can argue with a plan designed to protect Floridas black bear with habitat and corridors, and properly educate people about one of our most magnificent creatures? It cant come soon enough.Formerly a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times and Orlando Sentinel, Susan Clary is a freelance writer in Orlando. She can be reached at email@example.com. Florida VoicesLETTERSKudos and no kudos Editor: I have to say that during the Debby storm over this past weekend, some cities responded well and others were found lacking. Madeira Beach went into action by placing barriers at the entrance to roads that were flooded. Well done. Unfortunately the sand bank at Archibald Park was closed. Oh dear, just when we needed sand bags. On the other hand, unfortunately, there must have been nobody home at Redington Beach, as there where no barriers to be found and the roads between Gulf Boulevard and the Intracoastal were totally flooded. This allowed joy riders in jeeps and trucks to drive up and down the roads causing untold damage to the homes that where already flooded by creating wave action into their homes. Have a care guys; if this was your home, would you act this way? Lou Dobon Redington BeachSupports the flag amendmentEditor: Regarding those Americans who consider our flag as nothing more than a piece of cloth, I find it pathetic that they could be so insensitive after watching so many grief-stricken parents waiting for their son to arrive home in a coffin draped with the American flag, and we must not forget those heroes who returned home with just one arm to hug their loved ones with. As for the cynics who warn that the flag amendment tampers with the integrity of the Constitution, I would remind them that we have tampered with the Constitution 27 times (the amendments) to address the inequities and problems unforeseen and unimagined by our founding fathers in 1789. As for the First Amendment it has lost its virginity. It has been pimped and prostituted to the extent that it presently protects pornography on the Internet, obscene Rap lyrics and a crucifix in a jar of urine. So much for free speech! Tony DAndrea LargoWho paid for the signs?Editor: Have you noticed the hundreds of signs to limit electric cart travel that have been installed on most stop signs next to the major roads in Pinellas Park? At first I thought they had been installed by Publix for shopping carts. But now I know they are intended for these electric carts approved for travel by our council. So who did pay for them? Please tell me it was not my taxes! I would expect that no one was told about the cost of these signs before a council vote. OK so who paid and how much? Kenneth Conklin Pinellas Park Measuring the American DreamIm hearing a lot these days about the American Dream. TIME magazine recently had a cover story about it, so I guess the American Dream is vital and should be paid attention to, like other TIME covers such as The Dental Histories of U.S. Presidents and Can Mongolia Be Saved? The first question we might ask is, Exactly what is the American Dream? One answer is, To earn a higher salary than your father or mother did. Fair enough. But right away you realize that this criterion is unfair to the children of people like Mitt Romney, Donald Trump and Angelina Jolie. Theres no way those kids will be richer than their parents. For that reason the American Dream can be accused of being discriminatory. And in America its unfair to discriminate against anybody or anything. So already were in trouble. When I was a child, millions of Americans shared the dream of one day having an indoor toilet. Was that asking too much? I dont think so. Today most U.S. homes have running water, indoor plumbing and other essentials such as motorized toothbrushes. So parts of the American Dream do work, if only we dream and work hard enough. Education is another important plank in the American Dream platform. My parents summarized this dream for their children in this way: If you kids do your homework every night and never get less than a B+ on all your report cards, at the end of the school year well give you five dollars. However, if you fail, well send you to a work camp in Tennessee. So make your choice. A college education has long been part of the Dream. Today our country is filled with college graduates who have pursued that dream right into the poorhouse. On their walls are diplomas, but inside their desks are IOUs for $100,000 or so to student loan agencies that will hound the graduates into the grave, and beyond. An added irony is that many of these college graduates are unable to find a decent job. Does this nullify the American Dream? Of course not. But it does make our hearts beat not quite as fast when Obama or Romney lifts the banner of the American Dream in the hope that everyone will automatically salute it. Owning ones own home has been a bedrock of the Dream. For many years after WWII all an average family needed for home ownership was a small down payment followed by 20 or 30 years of steady employment and monthly checks to the bank. Lending agencies, including our noble federal government, made huge wads of cash available to almost anyone deemed credit-worthy. And for a long time the system worked. Then, thanks to Wall Street crooks and Washingtons financial enforcement laggards, the home-owning house of cards came crashing down. Today many respected financial advisers preach this message: Always rent. Forget about buying. The American Dream stood on its strongest legs in the years following the Second World War. Unlike many other combatants, the USA came out of the war with its economy intact. All we needed to do was to stop making tanks and submarines, and resume turning out cars and refrigerators. We had relatively small competition from the rest of the world. Globalism was barely heard of. America owned not only the gravy train but the tracks it ran on, as well. By the time the 1980s arrived, the scene had changed. Japan, Germany and other nations had emerged as players. Their products were often as good as ours and were manufactured by workers whose dreams such as having enough food to eat were much smaller and more realistic than those of U.S. workers. Today the American Dream is shaped to a large degree not just by our own energies and endeavors but also by what the people of foreign countries are thinking, dreaming and doing. The decisions made next week by bankers and politicians in Greece and Spain may determine whether my grandchildren and yours will achieve a college degree or even a career worth the name. Does any of the above mean that Americans should no longer dream or hope or plan for the future? I dont think so. As we celebrate our 236th birthday this week, by inclination and heritage were still a band of positive thinkers, inextricably wedded to Bloody Marys pronouncement in South Pacific: You got to have a dream if you dont have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true? Although its debatable that America is the best country in the whole wide world, what is incontestable is that as a nation and as a people, we can always do better. Perhaps that should be the yardstick by which we measure the progress of the American Dream.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Drivers SeatBob Driver Fidel Castro: Let them eat treesFor those of us in Miami (and in Cuba) who have waited decades for dictator emeritus Fidel Castro to disappear from our lives forever, a most unlikely cause for optimism has been provided by Castro himself. Castro, who hardly is seen in public these days, has revealed that he is senile. Demented. Madder than King George III. And we know that those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad. He suddenly wants Cuba to be filled with two kinds of Asian trees. In Castros words, these two trees will become inexhaustible sources of beef, eggs, and milk. Additionally, he says one of the trees can yield silk strands that can be woven into cloth and provide wellpaid employment in the shade for Cuban workers, regardless of their age or gender. Although he had planned to rule Cuba for life, Castro reluctantly had to yield power to his brother Raul, who is 81, in 2008 after a serious illness that required major surgery six years ago. Now the islands potato crop managed solely by the government is one of the worst in many years. Potatoes are an essential staple in Cubans daily meals. Because of endemic shortages, a pound of potatoes currently sells in the black market, when available, for $1 in a country where the average monthly wage is about $20. The Cuban government also admits that national production of milk and meat is down almost 12 percent, and the island is having to import 80 percent of its food, at a cost of $1.7 billion per year. Faced with such dire circumstances, Castro, almost 86, made a surprise announcement on Fathers Day, in a 51-word column called Reflections of Comrade Fidel mandatorily published in all official Cuban media. He triumphantly disclosed that he has singlehandedly discovered a miracle cure for the food shortages and chronic underemployment of the last five decades. His solution consists of planting two trees that apparently he has just learned about, although they have been of use throughout the world for centuries. Castro wants massive plantings of Moringa Oleifera, known in English variously as moringa, the horseradish tree and the drumstick tree. It is a fast-growing tree native to the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India that is popular in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. It yields various edible parts rich in protein, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A and C that can be consumed by people and animals. Castro also wants the nationwide planting of mulberry, a tree native to parts of tropical Asia whose leaves are the basic food of silkworms. This tree also produces a fruit and leaves that can be eaten by people, and its foliage can be used as feed for cattle, sheep and pigs. Of course, nobody in Cuba would dare tell Castro, although he no longer holds any public office, that his bizarre pronouncements will not be published in the official press, meaning his delusional Reflections are there for all to see. Now, like the fictional General of the Universe in his Colombian friend Gabriel Garcia Marquezs 1975 novel, The Autumn of the Patriarch, Castro is in the final ramblings of his long and complicated life. He has arrived at the ignominious fiction of commanding without power, of being exalted without glory and of being obeyed without authority.Angel Castillo Jr., a former reporter and editor for the New York Times and The Miami Herald, practices employment law in Miami.

Thanks to tropical storm Debbys pub crawl over our metropolitan area this past weekend, everybody got to stay home and ride it out under cover. Even most of the birds stayed put, hiding among the wildly whipping limbs and leaves and, hopefully, not too terribly pelted by raindrops propelled by 50 mph gusts. As I watch the good citizens of Gulf Boulevard slowly repopulate the roads, skies and seas, Im struck by an obvious truth: Live on land and shelter is available. Shelter-seeking and storms go together. If you live at sea, shelter is rare and therefore hotly defended. With a few exceptions, aquatic animals have to do something besides take shelter from storms if, that is, a weather disturbance like Debby is a storm to dolphins and other sea creatures. I am betting it is, but not for the reason most of us would name. A number of people have asked me how the dolphins did in the storm. The short answer is, we dont know. Only young (stupid) researchers actually go out during storms to see what the dolphins do. The only time I tried it, the dolphins vanished immediately in rain so heavy it looked like a translucent white shower curtain. From there we played a deadly game of dodge the lightning. By rights, I shouldnt be here at all. (To avoid ruining any reputations, Capt. John Heidemann wasnt part of that ill-advised adventure.) The long answer is, dolphins have no place to shelter from any threat except behind each other. This probably doesnt help much during a storm except when shelter is moms jet stream and the shelterseeking dolphin is a tiny new one who is shuffled to and from the surface without exerting much of its own energy (in short supply anyway). Folk wisdom holds that dolphins dive deep to avoid heavy seas. The heavier the seas, the deeper they go during descents. This sounds good on paper though I havent personally encountered empirical evidence of this. Undoubtedly, the dolphins ability to successfully shelter from surface turbulence by going deep varies with their location during the storm. It would seem to be less successful in shallow estuaries than anywhere along the big brim of that 560by 995-mile basin out back we call the Gulf of Mexico. I dont worry as much about the tiny newborn calves like Slightwin and FMs June babies during storms, because theyre still small enough to be swept along with mothers momentum and, perhaps, arent exhausted by heavy seas. I worry more about the slightly older calves, like Clubs April baby and Face and Js May babies, who, though still tiny, may have fractionally outgrown their ability to use moms energy for swimming, and who could be easily exhausted by heavy seas. The point is, even if dolphins can escape the stormy sea surface by submerging deeply during storms, they cant escape their reliance on sound to feed, stay together and detect enemies. Nor can they evade the storms inescapable noise. People heard Debbys winds whistle, howl and sometimes shriek for several days. Moreover, sheltered inside, its bleats and shrieks were probably muted against a background of news and weather broadcasts. But the rain! How constant it was. What a terrible racket it made, pelting roofs and windows. But at sea, where sound is carried far further than in air, the sound of rain is one of the LOUDEST sources of natural sound underwater. For more rain sound information by Jeffrey A. Nystuen, visit www. personal.umich.edu/~copyrght/image/solstice/win99/janystuen/LIS TEN.html. To dolphins and their highly developed hearing abilities, storms like Debby mean a snare of relentless reverberation. Rain has more high frequency sound and can be by orders of magnitude louder than wind alone. Another reason raindrops on water are so noisy is they make two sounds. One is the sound of impact when a raindrop splats against the water surface like a sack of potatoes dropped on a sidewalk from hundreds of stories above. The other is the bubble it creates underwater when it hits, which rings. While the bigger the raindrop, the bigger the sound of its impact, the sound from the bubble is far louder than the sound of the impact. Each of the five recognized drop sizes (measured by raindrop diameter: tiny (less than .8 mm), small, medium, large and very large (greater than 3.5 mm) has a unique acoustic signature. Oceanographers characterize oceanic storms by electronically eavesdropping to measure raindrops by their sounds. From light drizzles to showers, rain always includes small raindrops. Wildly, small raindrops are responsible for the surprisingly loud signature sound of drizzle underwater. The resonance frequency for these bubbles is 13-25 kHz. This falls easily into the low end of the dolphin hearing (1-150 kHz) but is shy of range in which they hear best (40-100 kHz). In contrast, its at the top range of human hearing (1-20 kHz). Humans and dolphins heard Debby very differently. Now, about those birds.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesBeacon Section B July 5, 2012Visit www.TBNweekly.com Selwyn Birchwood Band Friday, July 6, 8 p.m., at The Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Call 822-3590 or visit www.spcollege.edu/palladium/. Having opened for Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, John Lee Hooker Jr., and Joe Louis Walker, among others, the Selwyn Birchwood Band will deliver a hipshaking, roof-rattling mix of blues that has won over countless fans. Guitarist and vocalist Selwyn Birchwood got his start with Texas blues legend Sonny Rhodes touring throughout the United States and Canada at the age of 19. Joining him will be Curtis Nutall on drums, Huff Wright on bass and Regi Oliver on saxophone. Nutall traveled internationally with many bands including The Blind Boys of Alabama and Joe Louis Walker. Wright and Oliver have found themselves backing several notable blues artists all over the world including Lucky Peterson and Joey Gilmore. Tab Benoit, Friday, July 6, 8 p.m., at Skippers Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road, Tampa. Tickets are $17 in advance or $20 at the door. Call 813-971-0666 or visit www.skippers smokehouse.com. In a career of more than two decades, the blues guitarist/vocalist has generated an impressive body of work every note of it rooted in the rich and centuries-old musical and cultural traditions of Benoits native Louisiana. While his earliest recordings and performances may have established him as a genuine blues musician, his ever-expanding body of work has become even more resonant in the years since Hurricane Katrina and its devastating aftermath in 2005. Through his environmental advocacy work with Voice of the Wetlands which actually predates Katrina by a few years Benoit has counterbalanced his musical career with a tireless commitment to protecting the precarious landscape of his home state. This fierce commitment to creative and environmental ideals comes to the forefront in Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit, a recent compilation of recordings from Benoits years on the Telarc label. Benoit learned the blues first-hand from a faculty of living blues legends. The nightly impromptu gigs were enough to inspire Benoit to assemble his own band a stripped down bass-and-drums unit propelled by his solid guitar skills and leathery, Cajun-spiced vocal attack. He took his show on the road in the early s and hasnt stopped since.

We are a unique ladies consignment boutique specializing in trendy, fashionable, new and nearly new clothing and accessories. Even though we have a pretty good location in the Publix Shopping Center on Walsingham Road, we knew we needed to advertise to keep a steady stream of customers coming through the door. Weve advertised consistently in the Seminole Beacon, Largo Leader and Belleair/Beach Bee and our investment has paid for itself since the first day. Just the other day a customer walked in carrying the ad the first day it published and made a large purchase that more than paid for the ad. Were amazed at how many people come into the store with the ad even though we dont run coupons. The ads have also brought us very valuable consigners who enable us to provide the highest quality fashions for our customers. Customers have stated I drive by here everyday but didnt know you were here until I saw your ad in my newspaper. We know the ads have brought us customers we may have never met if we had relied on word of mouth alone.

They advanced the cause of the October Revolution of 1917 by experimenting with avant-garde processes and points of view. Photographers represented include Alexander Ustinov, Max Alpert, Emanuel Evzerikhin, and Georgi Zelma, among others. The photographs in this exhibition are selections from recent donations by Howard Schickler and Janice Tuckwood of more than 200 Soviet photographs. These images, the first of their kind to enter the collection, illuminate history and explore the manifold uses of photography.

They also share a one-of-akind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town ... until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta) wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.CollaboratorGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Martin Donovan, David Morse, Olivia Williams, Melissa Auf Der Mauer, Eileen Ryan, Vivian Lanko, Julian Richings and Katherine Helmond Director: Martin Donovan Not rated Robert Longfellow (Martin Donovan) is a famous playwright who cant seem to catch a break. His recent Broadway play was met with horrible reviews and an early cancellation, and his marriage is being tested as an old flame (Olivia Williams) as reentered his life during a particular moment of weakness. Retreating back to his childhood home to visit his mother (Katherine Helmond), Robert crosses paths with his childhood neighbor, Gus (David Morse). A right-wing, excon who still lives at home with his mother, Gus is Roberts polar opposite in every possible way. When Gus holds Robert hostage at gunpoint during a drunken reunion gone terribly wrong, the drama unfolds as social status, celebrity and the imminent threat of violence converge, building up to a climax that will leave both men forever changed.Crazy EyesGenre: Drama Cast: Lukas Haas, Madeline Zima, Jake Busey, Blake Garrett Rosenthal, Ray Wise and Valerie Mahaffey Director: Adam Sherman Not rated One of those glamorous L.A. people with too much money and too much time on his hands, Zach (Lukas Haas) looks like hes living the Hollywood dream. Theres a steady stream of beautiful women coming in and out of his posh home in the hills, and every night he makes his way through the hottest nightspots for a party that never ends. A divorce with a 5-year-old son, Zach has become a master at seducing women without ever getting too close. But all thats about to change hes met a girl he calls Crazy Eyes (Madeline Zima), and shes not like anyone hes ever met before. Flirty but withholding, intelligent but damaged, shes the one woman Zach cant have, so naturally he wants her above all others. While Zachs hard-partying lifestyle aided and abetted by his bartender pal Dan (Jake Busey) threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zachs life. While his ex-wife becomes more financially demanding, Zach grows closer to their son (Blake Garrett Rosenthal), finding stability and maturity in his role as a father thats absent from the rest of his life. And as Zach begins to embrace fatherhood, his own father (Ray Wise) becomes seriously ill which in turn leads to Zachs mother (Valerie Mahaffey) having a mental breakdown. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man?The Magic of Belle IsleGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Morgan Freeman, Virginia Madsen, Madeline Carroll, Kenan Thompson and Fred Willard Director: Rob Reiner Rated: PG Reuniting with director Rob Reiner from the hit film, The Bucket List, Morgan Freeman plays Monte Wildhorn, a famous Western novelist whose struggle with alcoholism has sapped his passion for writing. He takes a lakeside cabin for the summer in picturesque Belle Isle, and befriends the family next door an attractive single mom (Virginia Madsen) and her young daughters who help him find inspiration again. The PactGenre: Horror, mystery and thriller Cast: Caity Lotz, Casper van Dien and Agnes Bruckner Director: Nicholas McCarthy Not rated After her mother passes away, Annie is persuaded to return home and pay final respects. Sleeping in her childhood bedroom, something ominous and unfamiliar in the house rattles the tough-as-nails heroine. Enlisting the aid of a local cop and a clairvoyant to investigate, Annie soon finds these mysterious disturbances only serve as a catalyst to bring forth long-repressed nightmares that reveal a disturbing secret about her familys history. The Pact mixes genre elements to breathe new life into the classic haunted house genre. With an assured hand, director Nicholas McCarthy tactfully cranks up the tension and carefully peels away each twist to build toward a blood-tingling finale.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.
