County OKs final budget, millage By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County is ready for its new budget season, starting Oct. 1. Commissioners approved millage rates and budgets for fiscal 2013 at a final public hearing Sept. 18. Not all the approvals were unanimous, but long-time commissioners sustained their majority, pushing through the more controversial increases for the general fund and emergency medical services. Commissioner Norm Roche voted against almost every increase on the agenda. His motion to freeze all budgets and millage rates died for a lack of a second. Commissioners Nancy Bostock and Neil Brickfield joined with Roche in voting against many increases, including the rise in the general fund millage from 4.8108 mills to 5.105 mills. Combined with the millage rate for the health department fund, which did not go up, the countywide millage for fiscal year 2012-13 is 5.0727, a 1.75 percent increase from the rolled-back rate. A mill represents $1 of tax assessment per $1,000 of assessed property value. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the tax increase was needed to pay for an unanticipated increase in Medicaid billing from the state. Bostock and Roche also voted against the final countywide general fund budget of nearly $470 million. Bostock, Brickfield and Roche voted against the millage rate increase for the Emergency Medical Services Authority. The rate of 0.9158 mills is a 5.29 percent increase over the rolled-back rate of 0.8698 mills. The current year EMS millage rate is 0.8506. LaSala said the rate hike was due to the rising contract costs for Features Business . . . . . . . . . .13A Classieds . . . . . . . . .7-9B Community . . . . . . . .17-18A County . . . . . . . . .2, 3, 5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-6B Health & tness . . . . . . . .16A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Police beat . . . . . . . . . .6A Seminole . . . . . . . .8, 10-11A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .15A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising COUNTYPinellas Hope gets $500,000After years of one-time funding approvals, Pinellas Hope, serving 250 homeless individuals, became part of the regular budget when commissioners unanimously approved an agreement with Catholic Charities on Sept. 18.

The fastest show on water will involve super boats equipped with F-16 canopies reaching speeds up to 180 mph just off the shore of Clearwater Beach Sunday, Sept. 30 as racers vie for the title of national champion in 10 classes. An estimated 25,000 race fans turned out a year ago many on an estimated 2,500 boats in the Gulf of Mexico next to the 2.5-mile racecourse. Race teams consist of a twoperson team a driver who controls the boats steering and a throttleman responsible for operating up to four engines capable of producing more than 6,000 horsepower. Extreme speeds and rough water make it impossible for a single person to steer and operate the throttles. The best race teams hone the partnership between driver and throttleman down to a science, and incorporate the most advanced technology into their machines to generate optimum speed. Baystar Race Village opens Friday, Sept. 28 at noon. Spectators have the opportunity to see the boats on display, meet the drivers and participate in many family activities. Admission is free. Blast Friday will kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a boat parade through the streets of downtown Clearwater, followed by a concert by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. A private VIP party also will be held at 5:30 in Baystar Race Village at Clearwater Harbor Marina Promenade. Tickets are available for purchase. Races on Sunday start at noon and 2 p.m. Tickets to view the event off Pier 60 will be available the day of the races for $5 and $20. Other ticket packages will be available at the Hilton and Hyatt Regency hotels. Frank Chivas of the Bay Star Restaurant Group and Former Clearwater Mayor Brian Aungst of Bright House Networks brought the Super Boat races to Clearwater. All proceeds from the event will be donated to three local charities the Clearwater Community Sailing Center, Sailability, and the Make a Difference Fishing Tournament. Beach parking at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach parking garage is available throughout the festival weekend. Race fans can self-park at an hourly rate of $2.75 per hour or a maximum daily rate of $16. Valet parking also will be available for $16 per day. Additional off-beach parking is available at the Cleveland Street parking locations.

Also on the ballot are 11 proposed constitutional amendments that could have far-reaching impact on Florida and Floridians. Yet the amendments are often the least-understood elements of the biannual exercise in representative democracy called elections. Limited in wording and often the pet project of special interests, the amendments represent a series of often-baffling choices for voters. A special pre-election forum at St. Petersburg College on Thursday, Oct. 4 will take the mystery out of the amendments.

After years of one-time funding approvals, the campsite serving 250 homeless individuals became part of the regular budget when commissioners unanimously approved an agreement with Catholic Charities Sept. 18. The county first funded a five-month pilot program in December 2007, and when the program proved successful, continued one-time approval of additional funds in fiscal year 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12. Throughout the years, the county has allocated more than $2.7 million. The agreement between the county and the nonprofit charity promises an additional $500,000 in taxpayer support for fiscal 2013. At Pinellas Hope, homeless adults singles and couples are housed in tents. Children are not allowed. The facility does not serve families. Small houses are provided to those recuperating from surgeries, hospital stays or with other special needs. The program has proven to be a relatively lowcost solution to getting homeless people off the street and to work with them on solving the issues that caused them to become homeless, according to a report from Gwendolyn Warren, director of Pinellas County Health and Human Services. Pinellas Hope offers temporary housing, help with employment, access to health care and other assistance. It provides a safe environment for the working homeless to become self-sufficient again. This funding will enable the program to continue providing this valuable service to our citizens, Warren said. The $500,000 will be divided up into 12 monthly payments to go toward expenses incurred the month before. The money can be used to pay for utilities, food, consumable items, such as paper plates, napkins, bathroom supplies; bus passes and transportation; tents, clothing, blankets, tools for work; as well as staff salaries and benefits. The agreement specifies required reporting standards and requirements for data sharing and audits among other things. Pinellas Hope also receives funding from some municipalities, including Largo, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg. The bulk comes from the Diocese of St. Petersburg and other Catholic charities. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said she preferred the funding to be part of the regular budget versus continuing one-time funding; however, she cautioned that only priority items be built into the front end. Commissioner Ken Welch agreed it was better for the money to come out of the regular budget rather than non-recurring funds. We made a mistake in calling it one-time funding, he said. In related matters, the commission: Approved renewal of $351,650 in social action funding with several nonprofits that serve the health, economic or social well-being of the countys adult population. For fiscal year 2012-13, the St. Petersburg Free Clinic health center will receive $25,000, and $30,000 each will go to Religious Community Services food bank, the Salvation Army low income food services, St. Petersburg Free Clinic food bank, Operation Hope of Pinellas HIV/AIDS Treatment, Tarpon Springs Shepherd Center food bank and Daystar Life Center basic needs assistance. Another $40,000 will be allocated to Society of St. Vincent de Paul food center, $18,000 to Suncoast Epilepsy Association disease case management and $13,650 for Community Law Programs housing preservation. The largest sum, $75,000 will go to Neighborly Care Network for nutrition services for the elderly (Meals on Wheels).County employees to get $1,200 plus 24 hours of leave time By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys full-time employees, who work for the Unified Personnel System, soon will be receiving a check for $1,200 thanks to the commissions approval on Sept. 18. Theyll also get 24 hours of administrative leave to use during fiscal 2013. Commissioners voted 6-1 to approve the lump sum cost of living wage disbursement. Commissioner Nancy Bostock voted no. She did join with the others for unanimous approval of 24 extra paid hours off in the coming year that begins Oct. 1. Id love to support our employees, Bostock said. But I have serious concerns about taking the money out of reserves. Im OK with the time off. Bostock asked that the question be split into two parts the money and the time to give her an opportunity to vote yes on the leave. Estimated cost of the supplemental pay is $3.5 million. County Administrator Bob LaSala suggested taking the money from the Service Level Stabilization Account, which was built up to help bridge the budget gap as the economy began to level out stabilize. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that 60 percent of the countys employees make less than $50,000. Theyre not getting enriched by serving the public, she said. County employees havent had a pay raise in four years and some have gone five years without a bump in pay. The notion came up to provide the supplemental pay at the Sept. 6 meeting after news got out that the sheriff was giving his employees extra pay. The commission conceded they needed to do something for the rest of county employees. The extra pay and time off does not apply to elected officials. All full time employees on active status who have been employed at least one year as of Oct. 30 will receive the one-time check of $1,200 and 24 hours leave. Bostock said she understood and was concerned that county employees have not had a raise in four or five years. A lot of people in the community are in the same place, she said. She suggested that employee pay be discussed during the budget process next year. LaSala said since the sheriff was required to negotiate labor contracts each year, he would be at a disadvantage at the bargaining table if he talked about changes in employee compensation as part of his budget request. It could put him in a difficult position, LaSala said. But there has to be a way to avoid this difficult situation, Commission Chair John Morroni said.

PETERSBURG For nearly a year, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority has been setting monthly ridership records. Along with that increased ridership comes the side effect of more trash at bus stops and transfer centers. Its been a challenge, said PSTA Facilities Maintenance Manager Kevin Hoyt. Keeping the bus stops clean is very important for our riders and for the communities we serve. These innovative compactors are the perfect solution. Hoyt is talking about 14 new solar-powered trash compactors that the agency just installed at various locations throughout the county. Manufactured by Big Belly Solar Inc., the compactors harness the power of information technology and renewable energy to help reduce the need for costly trash pickups. Inside these state-of-the-art, solar-powered trash cans, a sensor keeps track of how full the container is and automatically goes through a compaction cycle when needed. Once the can is full and can no longer be compacted, it sends an email to PSTAs Facilities Maintenance department telling staff its ready to be emptied. This very specific, real time notification means that our crews can pinpoint pickups and make their rounds with greater efficiency. Officials say that just two of the BigBelly cans at a busy transfer location can take the place of four regular cans and reduce the number of times the can needs to be emptied from once a day to twice a month. When the cost of the cans is paid, officials say they will save taxpayers more than $9,000 a year per location in maintenance costs. The BigBelly compactors can be found at PSTAs facilities at 34th Street, Gateway Mall, Park Street Terminal, 75th Avenue and Gulf Way, Clearwater Mall, Grand Central Station and Ulmerton Road and 49th Street. Agency officials plan to purchase about 70 more of the compactors over the next few of years and are looking forward to the added savings. For more information about PSTA, visit www.PSTA.net or call the PSTA InfoLine at 540-1900.This solar trash compactor recently installed at a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority transfer station is saving on cleaning costs. One compactor can replace four regular trash cans and requires emptying twice a month instead of once a day.

Bostock and Roche also voted against the EMS budget of just over $107 million. Millage rates and budgets that had no increase from the current year were passed unanimously for the Pinellas Planning Council, as well as the Municipal Service Taxing Unit and the MSTU Public Library Cooperative tax paid by unincorporated residents. Commissioners approved, 5-2, an increase in the millage rate for the Palm Harbor Community Services District. Bostock and Brickfield voted no. LaSala said the increase was requested by officials with the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency. The rate went up from 0.4378 mills to 0.50, which is a 10.91 percent increase over the rolled-back rate. Bostock and Brickfield also voted against approval of the $1.677 million budget. Commissioners unanimously approved a decrease in the millage rate for the Feather Sound Community Services District, as proposed by Commission Chair John Morroni. Property owners currently pay 0.5660 mills. The new rate is 0.50 mills, which is a 12.80 percent decrease over the rolledback rate. The budget also received unanimous approval. Commissioners gave unanimous approval to all millage rates and budgets for fire districts without an increase, including Belleair Bluffs, Gandy, High Point, Pinellas Park, Seminole, South Pasadena and Tarpon Springs. Millage rates and budgets increased in Largo, Safety Harbor, Tierra Verde, Clearwater and Dunedin due to an increase in funding requests from those fire districts, according to LaSala. Roche voted against all the increases except for Dunedin, which required unanimous approval. Roche voted against the increase during the first budget hearing on Sept. 6. He changed his vote after staff said if the money did not come through the millage rate increase, it would have to come from another source, such as the general fund budget. The vote to approve the total final county budget was 5-2 with Bostock and Roche dissenting.Limited comment from the publicUnlike past years, when the public packed the courthouse, overflowing into areas downstairs, the chairs were mostly empty at both budget hearings. According to the Clerk of the Court Ken Burke, prior to the final public hearing, only five residents had communicated their support of the budgets and millage rates, and 39 had weighed in as opposed via phone calls, letters and emails. At the first public hearing Sept. 6, five people attended. Three of those advocated saving money on public safety by making arrests for cannabis the lowest priority. John Chase returned Sept. 18 to repeat the message. Joe Paige attended both meetings to express his displeasure at the increases and the continued funding of programs, via county, state or federal dollars, that he says are not functions of the government. He gave an example of a program funded by the federal department of Health and Human Services with money passing through state Health and Human Services to county Health and Human Services to reduce obesity. Tom Rask told the commission that more cuts could be made and said regardless of where the money comes from federal, state or county government the commission should be careful how you spend it. He said people couldnt afford to pay more in the current economy. Deb Caso also spoke against the increase in taxes and approval of $1,200 in extra pay for county employees. Her husband Tony Caso echoed her sentiments. Its admirable to give county workers a few extra dollars. They could use it, just the same as everyone else, he said. People are struggling. This is an over-bloated budget Raising taxes and increasing budgets is ridiculous. BUDGET, from page 1ABishop Center for Ethical Leadership and Civic Engagement, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. Frank Alcock, associate professor of political science, New College of Florida, will moderate. Not all of the amendments are difficult to understand. Nos. 2, 9 and 11, for example, would expand tax exemptions for military veterans and/or their widowed spouses, widowers of first responders killed in the line of duty, and low-income senior citizens. But others are more complex, and laced with controversy. Amendment 1 seeks to exempt Florida from the national health care law, also known as Obamacare. Amendment 3 would impose limits on the amount of revenue the state could raise in any given year. Amendment 4 would provide more tax relief for non-homesteaded property, which local governments say would cost them $700 million a year in property tax revenue statewide. Amendment 5 would alter the balance of power between the legislative and judicial branches of state government. Perhaps most thorny of all are amendments 6 and 8. Amendment 6 would limit a womans constitutional right to privacy where abortion is concerned. Amendment 8 would repeal an existing clause in the state Constitution that provides for a separation of church and state in spending of state tax dollars. The Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a nonpartisan venue for civil, objective debate of topical public issues, a center to promote better government, and a resource for sustainable economic development.

AMENDMENTS, from page 1ASPC, partners awarded $15 million workforce grantCLEARWATER U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis announced $500 million worth of grants impacting almost 300 community colleges nationwide Sept. 19, from the Clearwater Campus, including a grant of $15 million to a consortium headed by St. Petersburg College. The Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grants allow community colleges and employers to work together to build a skilled workforce in fields such as advanced manufacturing, transportation and health care, as well as science, technology, engineering and math occupations. The grant proposed by SPC and its partners will build a statewide training system for advanced manufacturing jobs in high demand, such as specialized welders, machinists and technicians. The training will focus on Florida workers who lost their jobs or are at risk of losing their jobs as a result of foreign trade, as well as veterans returning from service and workers in need of skills upgrades to remain in the workforce. This grant will put all the key players on the same team, working for a common goal, Solis said. People will go back to school if they know it is affordable and they know they can get a job when they graduate. St. Petersburg College president Bill Law and Broward College president David Armstrong began forming the coalition a year ago. Both serve on the board of Workforce Florida. We are well aware of the importance of manufacturing in our state, Law said. The grant, he said, helps the state combine its resources for a cohesive statewide effort to train critical workers for the manufacturing sector. The grant is one of the largest ever awarded to SPC. It is the result of a collaboration among 12 Florida community colleges, businesses, workforce and economic development and community organizations, through the leadership of Law and Armstrong. We determined what resources existed that we could build from since we know that once this money goes away, we want to be able to sustain our efforts, said Jackie Skryd, director of grant development at SPC. How do we build capacity? The funds will cover development of the infrastructure needed to share these resources, train faculty and expand business relationships for jobs and internships not just cover unsustainable costs like tuition and fees. Over the four years of the grant, 2,600 newly skilled workers are expected to be trained, employed and advanced up the career ladder. The training, Solis said, is a ticket to employment. The plan, formally called Florida TRADE (Transforming Resources for Accelerated Degrees and Employment) in Advanced Manufacturing, targets training of individuals with a range of skills. Participants can enter and exit the non-credit, industry-recognized certification training at different stages. They can continue to build on one skill and eventually earn a traditional degree or they can add different skills at the same level. Each participants current skills will be evaluated so that prior knowledge can be recognized, allowing them to earn certification or a degree more quickly. Participants across the state will have access to universal online courses, paired with hands-on training and internships specific to their areas of study. About 40 industry leaders, including Conmed Linvatec, Jabil, Coca Cola and Mosaic, already are part of the partnership and have identified areas of worker shortage.

All money raised goes to support All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg.Catholic Charities receives funding for homeless vetsST. PETERSBURG Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg was awarded a $1.06 million grant by the Department of Veteran Affairs Sept. 20 to provide temporary housing to former homeless veterans with the goal that they will retain the residence as their own. As we drive toward our goal to end homelessness among veterans in 2015, the VA continues to find innovative ways to permanently house veterans who were formerly homeless, said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. Under President Obamas leadership, we have made incredible strides in creating programs to aid these brave men and women who have served our nation so well. The grant to the Catholic Charities will be used to provide a daily average of 25 beds for homeless veterans to promote increased housing stabilization. Housing will be provided at 5726 126th Ave. N., Clearwater, and 8384 Bayou Boardwalk, Largo. The grants were awarded through a special program that gives veterans the opportunity to take over payment of a lease instead of moving out after leaving certain VA programs, such as substance use counseling, mental health services, or job training. Usually, VA programs require veterans living in transitional housing to move out after 24 months. Called the Transition in Place model, it helps close the gaps in available housing for the nations most vulnerable homeless veterans, including women with children, Indian tribal populations, and veterans with substance use and mental health problems. Securing permanent housing is a vital step in the journey of our homeless veterans, said Dr. Susan Angell, executive director for the VAs Veterans Homeless Initiative. This is the last piece of the puzzle. It is crucial for them in continuing to lead independent lives. Under the program, funds go to community-based programs that provide homeless veterans with support services and housing. Lisa Pape, national director of homeless programs for the Veterans Health Administration, which oversees the VAs Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program, said VHAs focus is creating and strengthening community services around the country so that homeless veterans get the support they need. Our focus is creating a team of community support pairing a variety of services, such as mental health support, employment assistance and job training with the essential component of housing, said Pape. On a single night in 2011, a national count of homeless veterans totaled 67,495 12 percent lower than 76,000 in 2010. As part of Obama and Shinsekis five-year plan to eliminate veteran homelessness by 2015, the VA has committed almost $1 billion to strengthen programs that prevent and treat the many issues that can lead to veteran homelessness. To help a homeless veteran or veteran at risk of homelessness, residents should refer them to the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans, 1-8774AID-VET, or direct them to www.va.gov/homeless. The hotline connects homeless veterans, veterans at risk of becoming homeless and their families with the VA services and benefits they have earned.

The event will be held at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel, 333 First St. S., St. Petersburg, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. The celebration is being held in conjunction with National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is recognized during the month of October. Vocational Rehabilitation, a statewide program under the Florida Department of Education that assists disabled individuals with training, will host the event, medical treatment, accommodations, and other services so they may become or remain employed. VR has helped more than 6,000 Floridians find or keep their jobs last year and has 80 offices across Florida. Placement Works Inc., a nonprofit job placement organization that works directly with the VR to place individuals with disabilities, nominated the Bay Pines VA for the award. When an employer goes out of their way to hire and accommodate individuals with disabilities, they deserve to be recognized, said Christy BoccabellaBrown, president and founder of Placement Works Inc. In Browns official nomination application to VR, she made special mention of the Bay Pines VAs Textile and Laundry Facility for their strong support and commitment to hiring the disabled. A familylike and caring environment are just some of the words used to describe the laundry operation in the award application. Ron Krohn, a laundry foreman at the Bay Pines VA, works directly with two of the employees who found jobs at the facility because of the VR program and Placement Works. According to Krohn, his goal is to ensure all employees, regardless of condition, have the opportunity to grow and succeed. The bottom line is that everyone is part of the team, and everyone can contribute to the mission regardless of physical or mental condition, Krohn said. As Henry Ford once said if everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. That is our approach here at the laundry plant and Bay Pines. Currently, the Bay Pines VA employs about 410 individuals with disabilities a number that continues to grow each year. Our hiring practice at Bay Pines VA is to find and select the most highly skilled and competent employees available, said Suzanne Klinker, director of the Bay Pines VA. Many of our most dedicated, talented and skilled employees have disabilities. Their commitment to the VA mission and to our veterans is unwavering we are honored that they are part of the Bay Pines family. The Disability Employment Awareness Celebration is free and open to the public. For questions about the event, please call 850-245-3415.

Todd Kershaw was charged with leaving the scene of a traffic crash resulting in the death of Edin Deleon, 24, of Seminole. Kershaw was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $100,000. Members of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Major Accident Investigation Team and Strategic Enforcement Section were able to develop probable cause for the arrest of Kershaw through various citizen tips and investigative leads, according to a report from the sheriffs office. The hit-and-run crash occurred at approximately 1 a.m. Sunday, July 8, on Park Boulevard, just east of 110th Lane in Seminole. The victim was not crossing at an intersection, nor utilizing a crosswalk. Deputies said as Deleon crossed the road, a dark colored sedan struck him and fled the scene traveling westbound. While still in the roadway, the victim was then struck by a silver Honda Civic. The driver of the Civic stayed on scene and cooperated with authorities. The victim was treated at the scene then brought to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.Man arrested for capital sexual batteryDUNEDIN Pinellas County sheriffs deputies arrested a Dunedin man at his residence about 5:50 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 17.

The girls are now 11 and 12 years old. The crime was reported to the Sheriffs Office on Aug. 7, and detectives began investigating the case. During the course of the investigation, detectives discovered two additional victims. Detectives say Lawson engaged in sex with one of the victims between 1995 and 1996, when she was 10 years old; and the other, from 2004 to 2007 when she was between the ages of 11 and 14. Detectives say Lawson may have had other victims and are asking anyone with information that may assist in this investigation to contact Detective Eugene Paniccia of the Crimes Against Children Unit at 582-6200.Bank robbery suspect soughtPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police are looking for a man who, wearing a white ski mask and armed with a handgun, robbed the Fifth Third Bank at 7770 66th St. N. around noon on Sept. 15.

The offers were fraudulent. The scam uncovered by Pinellas Countys Department of Justice and Consumer Services recently received national attention in a report by the North American Consumer Protection Investigators and highlights the need for consumer awareness and caution. Douglas Templeton, chief investigator at the department, warns that citizens in the county should be alert for offers of free energy audits, significant utility savings and federal government rebates. Always be alert when approached by unsolicited salesmen, offers of large energy savings or government rebates are danger signs, Templeton said. If its too good to be true, it usually is. Consumers should never sign agreements or contracts without documentation and checking to make sure the service provider is licensed through the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board. Contractors offering solar energy improvements are required to have specific licensure for this service in Florida. Pinellas County offers these tips to protect you from consumer fraud: Home solicitors are required to display permits issued by the Pinellas County Clerks office. Incredible savings or rebates are a signal to use caution. Ask for written rebate information for any product or service. Be wary of unsolicited sales agents. Scare tactics are often used to get your approval for unnecessary products or services. Check for licensure through the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board. Claims of a government connection to any product are a warning sign.

She has been struggling to keep the store at 5600 Park Blvd. going for the last several years, but hasnt had much success. Now the property to the 65-year-old family business has been sold. By JULIANA A. TORRESPINELLAS PARK On Sept. 30, Bryan & Holton hardware store, a 65-year-old family business on Park Boulevard, will close its doors for good. Janelle Holton Lyons, the fourth generation store operator of a business started in 1947, found out earlier this summer that she had only 90 days to sell off what inventory she could and clear everything out. Most of my customers are really terribly upset. They cant believe it, she said. I mean, weve been here 65 years. Though Lyons didnt find out until after the fact, her father, James Bryan Holton, sold the property at 5600 Park Blvd. in June. I love my dad. I understand why he did it I havent been able to pay rent for four years, Lyons explained. Nor does she blame her father, who hasnt run the hardware business for more than 12 years, for his decision. The rent money she was to pay him was supposed to support him in his retirement. She just wishes he had given her more notice. Right now, I have my hands full, and Im concerned about getting rid of and selling (inventory) and getting out of here, she said. Lyons began working at the family store 24 years ago. She raised her three children within its walls. She said she knows 90 percent of her clientele by name. In the past, with little more than a promise of payment, Lyons had given away needed tools and equipment to workers from the nearby Labor Force Staffing Agency, which used to be next door. She prides herself on the service she provided, waiting on customers and helping them find exactly what they needed. She knows her stuff, boy, Ill tell ya, said James Bryan, a customer for about 25 years and of no relation whatsoever to the family, despite his similar name. Im sorry to see them hanging it up, he said. You find something (here) you cant find anywhere else, like old-fashioned hardware. Lyons said she would sell customers the single screw they need rather than charging them for the whole box. Ive always tried to do whatever I can to work around to help people, you know, to get them to come back, she said. But its been tough. In the past, a customer in need of two screws might buy a dozen just in case. Thats changed since the Great Recession. Those same people are coming in, but theyre only buying the two screws now, Lyons said. So I went from a $1.20-sale to a 20-cent sale. I cant keep my doors open with 20-cent sales. Ive got to do a lot of them. In the past year, Lyons hasnt had enough money left over after paying the bills to restock her store, and on some occasions, shes had to take money from her savings account to turn power back on. For the past five years, shes been living in the stores converted office, complete with a kitchen and all her needs. The lower cost in her personal bills has helped supplement the store. I was just trying to survive, she said. In the past three years, I have lost anywhere from three to five mom-and-pop businesses that did like $50 to $100 a month with me. That steady income amounted to the cost of her power bill, she said. Im beside myself. Its been very, very hard, she said, her voice breaking. After the sale of the property was complete, the new owner came to her and asked if she would be willing to stay if he refurbished and upgraded the place, provided she could pay him rent. Everybody likes the oldness about the store, Lyons protested. He wanted to clear, liquidate everything out and basically make this look like a little mini Home Depot. We wouldnt be who we are. Thats exactly right, said her customer Bryan, nodding in agreement. Thats part of the reason customers come to Bryan & Holton Hardware as opposed to other hardware stores. They carry stuff that you generally cant find at Home Depot, because its old stock, said a customer who did not wish to be named. Lyons said she is slowly selling as much of her inventory as she can, at greatly discounted prices. Some of it, like the paint, will likely be donated to Habitat for Humanity. I doubt seriously Im going to find somebody whos going to want the paint, she said. Some of the stores hold on Pinellas Park history also will be donated. Lyons said she has boxes of old photographs to go through, including those of Park Boulevard when it was a dirt road as well as the construction of Bryan Dairy Road, named after Lyons greatgrandfather and the original storeowner. Most of them, including an old firefighter hat, will go to the Pinellas Park Historical Society. I would rather them be enjoyed by other people, Lyons said. Lyons said she wasnt sure what she would do next. The store will officially close on Sept. 30, but Lyons will have until Oct. 13 to be completely cleared out. She knows shell have to move herself and her two dogs into the home shes been renting out. Id like to take at least a three-month break, just to get me back. From there, I dont know. Ive got a lot of knowledge under my belt, she explained. The problem is, theres got to be jobs to be gotten. She said that the transition might be the break she needs in whats been a downhill slide since she ended a 13-year-relationship five years ago. In a way, Im ready to throw the towel in and just be done with it, she said. Ive had a hard time for five years. She said she hopes that after the election in November, people will realize that politicians cant solve the nations financial woes. I think that people will loosen up and figure (that) we as the American public if we dont do something about this and give up on the politics, were going to fall apart, she said. The hardware store, left, opened in 1947 and has been a Pinellas Park staple at 5600 Park Blvd. six decades. All store inventory, above, must be liquidated.

PETERSBURG Progress Energy Florida is preparing to launch its third round of solar photovoltaic rebates offered through the utilitys SunSense solar energy program. Progress Energy first made rebates for customer-owned solar PV systems available in March 2011. The last round of rebates, available for qualifying customer-owned solar PV systems installed in 2012, were fully allocated in less than a day. The utility expects a similar level of interest in the 2013 rebates. Customers interested in applying for rebates through Progress Energys 2013 SunSense Solar PV Program can complete the online reservation process starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 1. The SunSense program is a key component of our strategy to assist those customers interested in investing in solar technology, said Vincent Dolan, Duke Energy state president, Florida. We were pleased with the level of interest demonstrated when the rebates became available the last two years and were hoping for a similar response this time around. Through the SunSense program, Progress Energy Florida provides qualifying residential and commercial customers rebates of up to $2 per watt for customer-installed solar PV systems. The utilitys residential and commercial customer classes are each allocated more than $1 million in solar PV incentives on an annual basis through 2014. Progress Energy has implemented a reservation process to help customers qualify for the solar PV rebate prior to installation. Due to the annual solar PV incentives cap, the utility recommends that customers wanting to take advantage of these rebates become familiar with process prior to the Oct. 1 launch. Additional information about the companys reservation process is available at progress-energy.com/sunsense. Other components of Progress Energys SunSense program include: SunSense Solar Water Heating Program: Progress Energy offers a rebate of $550 toward the installation of a qualifying system. The company also is working with nonprofit builders to incorporate a free solar thermal water-heating system into qualifying, low-income customers homes during construction. SunSense Schools Program: Progress Energy is partnering with schools serving as emergency shelters to install a 10-kilowatt (kW) solar PV system with battery backup on up to 10 sites throughout the companys Florida service territory per year through 2014. The company also is installing a 100-kW solar PV system on one postsecondary school each year. Alternative energy technologies, such as those included in the SunSense program combined with energy efficiency and state-of-the-art plants collectively form the balanced solution strategy Progress Energy Florida believes will best help meet customers shortand long-term energy needs. Progress Energy Florida is an industry leader in the development and implementation of programs to help customers save energy and money. Through the companys energy-efficiency programs, Progress Energy Floridas customers have collectively saved more than $1 billion in energy costs since 1981, reducing the need for enough electricity to power more than 900,000 homes for a year. In all, Progress Energy Florida currently offers its customers 14 programs and more than 100 energy-efficiency upgrades to reduce their energy bills and carbon footprints.Biz notes Holland America to present showSEMINOLE Holland America Lines complimentary On Stage Alaska program will be presented Monday, Oct. 29, 10 a.m., in the Rosekamp Auditorium at Freedom Square, 7800 Liberty Lane.

Viewpoints 15A Beacon, September 27, 2012Letter is a disservice to journalistsEditor: As a former reporter I am truly embarrassed for the letter writer last week who claimed to be a journalism major from Northwestern University. Ms. Lovallo-Coddingtons opinion-as-fact letter is a gross disservice to both Northwestern University and journalists everywhere. She actually and embarrassingly claims that she couldnt find the email addresses of Bob McClure and Alexandra Lundahl. Since both are easily found in the print and online editions of the TBN Weekly papers, her efforts were nothing short of a horrid lack of effort, creativity and journalistic acumen on her part. A true journalism student would know that instead of making broad, nebulous accusations, you build your story on facts and back them up with proper attribution. She did neither while purporting her personal opinion as fact. Throughout the past seven years, I have had regular interactions with the staff of Tampa Bay Newspapers and if theres anything that sums up their collective efforts, its accuracy and a steadfast adherence to the Society for Professional Journalists Code of Ethics (http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp). Apparently, based on her absurd letter, Ms. Lovallo-Coddington skipped that class at Northwestern. So silly and embarrassing was that letter that I can confidently say if ever there were (not was as the she incorrectly penned apparently shes more a stranger to the written word than she thinks) a need for a factchecker, it lies with Ms. Lovallo-Coddington. Bob Lasher ClearwaterLetter writers twist factsEditor: Last Week TBN reporters were unfairly attacked for simply reporting on President Obamas visit to Seminole. Kaye Coddington claimed their article was full of false statements and inaccuracies. Then said the reporters needed to be kept safe. I am still wondering if that was a veiled threat. I read their article and all I heard in their words was a report of what transpired at the event. However people like Coddington and another letter writer E.R. Lake never let the truth get in the way of twisting or creating facts. Lake writes of the $16 million debt and the $5 million Obama supposedly added to it, tries and fails to seem to blame both parties, to buy credibility with the audience, then uses the fear factor and issues America faces to convince us they are all Obamas fault. Never once mentioning the fact we had a surplus going in to Bushs eight years, an unnecessary war, unbridled spending that was never paid for, an economy on the brink of collapse, and a tax break for those that have taken the lions share of wealth for the last 30 years, all before Obama took office. Coddington wants God to save us from lack of intelligence because of course those of us that vote for Obama must be stupid, uneducated morons that cant read. He gives his credentials as a journalist, follower of politics and someone who has looked at both sides. She must be talking about Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Let us ignore the fact that I graduated in the top of my class from a Catholic University and that unlike Republican conservatives get my facts from credible sources like the majority of leading economists that mostly agree if Obama had not done what he did we would now be in a depression. Or maybe that I believe the majority of leading scientists that agree on global warming. God forbid I actually use facts from sources like the Department of Labor Statistics, the GAO or historical data that shows what works and what doesnt. I went to the school of life. Im 59 years old and I have been waiting all my life for Republicans to be on my side and they have failed miserably. From eroding my familys ability to acquire a better life to gaming a system that has given the 1 percent the lions share of the wealth while leaving the rest of us to fight for the scraps, people like Romney have led the charge for the rich to get richer. They started class warfare. So I will take the community organizer over the rich robber baron every time. I find no credibility to argue effectively in people who want Obama to save them in 3 1/2 years while ignoring or refusing to accept responsibility for Bush almost destroying our country and creating the bulk of the deficit in eight years. Last year I debunked every statement of one of my few Republican friends believed using credible sources. When asked, Dont you want to know the truth, he said, No I want to believe whatever I want even if it is not the truth. It seems some TBN Weekly readers suffer from the same ailment. George A. Gonzalez Madeira BeachRepublican women blissfully unawareEditor: As a usually-Republican voter, I am astonished to read Attorney General Pam Bondis remark at the meeting where Ann Romney spoke in Largo. She denied that Republicans have taken off against women in a very big way with suddenly a whole lot of legislation. She says shes sickened by the reports. Sickeningly, those bills are for real, Pam. Plenty were passed, too, as I count them. Most other Republican women are also blissfully unaware. Young Republicans have no clue what life-changing legislation their lives will be up against. Maybe if they read the Republican platform all the way through, beyond the first feel-good words? Wake up, ladies. Choose your vote carefully or you will soon be fitted for chastity belts. Harold Fox St. PetersburgWhy not Seminole?Editor: I had a hard time believing that I was not the target of a joke when I received the call earlier this month inviting me to see President Obama at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus, only a few blocks from my home. People asked me, Why Seminole? We do not need to ask Why Seminole? It is completely appropriate that this gathering was held on a college campus, as education and entrepreneurship are key to job creation and the continuing improvement of our economy. SPC Seminole has strong entrepreneurship, environmental, and high tech academic programs. Our college also employs Provost Jim Olliver who saw possibilities with this visit and followed through on a lead. Well done. Why Seminole? Seminole is a great place to live, has outstanding schools, and proximity to award-wining beaches. Seminole is centrally located in one of the most populous counties in the swing state of Florida, so it makes sense for the nation to be looking here. Seminole deserves to be considered the face of Florida suburban life. This presidential visit showcased our fine city. I would like to publicly thank every person who had some responsibility for this event. As with many campaign visits Seminole had very short notice. There were major tasks to perform to prepare the area for what turned out to be around 11,000 attendees which included government VIPs. Maintenance and security preparations had to be coordinated with local, county, state and federal departments. Fire department staff, emergency medical crews and law enforcement did an excellent job. From the grounds keeping crew to campus administration, and from both city and college campus employees, to student and other volunteers, people showed a great spirit of teamwork and cooperation. Sincere appreciation to the many people who came together as community to pull this off. Going forward, when people think of Florida and elections, we can be proud that the Seminole community has shown itself to be an exemplary venue for an event of national importance. We know that Charlotte and Tampa had months to prepare for their political events. In a matter of days perhaps hours the Seminole community seamlessly came together and presented our area admirably. This impression was made to the entire country and possibly to the world. In light of the success of this community effort we should not be asking, Why Seminole? Instead we should proudly ask Why not Seminole? Patricia Plantamura Seminole Many years ago Louis Satchmo Armstrong made a record What a Wonderful World. Its lyrics listed many pleasing things in life. It made you feel good. But lately I wonder if anyone with a functioning brain isnt tempted to laugh, or at least give out with a wry smile, when that song is played. Thats because today the world or large chunks of it is not at all wonderful. Its something of a looney bin, a battlefield, a jigsaw puzzle with half the pieces missing. As I write this (on Sept. 19 or so), about 20 Muslim nations throughout the world are burning the American flag and attacking U.S. embassies and soldiers. The alleged reason? An obscure American parole violator produced a movie in which the prophet Mohammed was slandered. Neither the U.S. government nor any of its officials had a hand in the deal, but few of the offended Muslims seem to care about that. Theyre good and sore, and therefore Obama and his citizens (i.e., the rest of us) must pay. Americans reactions to the Muslim uproar will vary. One unworkable response would be to shut down all U.S. contacts with Muslim nations. Forbid all further immigration into the U.S.A. by Muslims. Close all our embassies in Muslim countries, and call our citizens home. Prohibit U.S. tourism to any foreign nation or city where anti-U.S. actions have occurred. Such a policy is, of course, unlikely if not impossible. Americans and U.S. interests are scattered by the thousands throughout the world. Isolationism may have been a viable attitude before the start of World War II, but it is no longer realistic in a world where globalism is the coin of almost every realm. I would imagine that for at least the next few months film-makers, playwrights, broadcasters, and journalists of all stripes will be reluctant to refer to Mohammed or the Muslim religion in any but the most complimentary terms. An even more inviting approach is for all U.S. media to pretend that the Muslim faith simply does not exist. Wherever possible, we could refuse to publish or broadcast any mention of Muslims. Im not sure how that would end. If I were a moderate non-violent Muslim (and I believe most Muslims fit that description), Id be disturbed by the riots and flagburnings that have taken place since that ill-begotten film was first shown. Continued Muslim violence no matter how far away from the U.S.A. it might occur will ultimately trigger a violent response from many Americans, who will simply vent their anger on the nearest innocent Muslim bystander they can lay their hands on. When that sort of retribution gets started its hard to stop. As a longtime non-fan of organized religion (especially the extremist ilk), Im astounded that many Muslims feel compelled to rise up with Molotov cocktails and other evil weapons so that the honor of Mohammed and his teachings can be defended against the insults of some obscure, minor-league moviemaker. Is the Muslim faith so shaky and insecure? I doubt if thats the case for 99 percent of todays Muslims. Unfortunately, the one percent fanatic base of any and all religions is often the driving force that can take it over the cliff of worldwide public opinion. After the Al Qaeda attacks of 9-11-01, many Americans resolved to learn more about the Muslim religion in an attempt to figure out why some of its adherents hate the U.S.A., the West and all other religions. Has this attempt allowed us to better understand what makes Muslims tick? Im not sure. Lately Ive been reading accounts by religious experts who have concluded that Muslim doctrine may be only a small part of the puzzle. The rest of the current Mideast mayhem may be tied to poverty, joblessness among Muslim youths, material envy and sexual and political repression. Right now, how should you and I feel about Muslims who kill Americans, shut down our embassies and burn our flags? Possible responses: (1) Get mad as hell about it; (2) postpone all plans for travel to any land west of Indonesia and east of London; (3) regretfully, expect more outrage and defiance from Mohammeds militant followers. For years to come, they will be an influence to be dealt with. Even after they are defeated or otherwise overcome, there will be other blackguards and rapscallions to come on destinys stage and fulminate for their allotted fifteen minutes. And what about Louis Armstrong and the optimistic lyrics of his song, above? I believe that people will be listening to that song, and believing in its ideas, long after todays Mideast fires have died out and been forgotten.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.Todays not-so-wonderful worldThey are two of the most repeated claims youll hear every four years: This is the most important election in our lifetime. Partisanship is demolishing the country. Rubbish. Ive been voting since the Reagan-Carter contest of 1980, when some of us thought electing Reagan would mean war with the Soviet Union. The guy ended up making peace with the Soviet Union, and a year after he left office, the evil empire collapsed. Similarly, some of us thought that if Bill Clinton were elected, his high taxes would paralyze the economy and socialize our lives. His high taxes created 23 million jobs, more than any two-term president in history. And he erased the budget deficit. We can skip the valiant disaster of the Bush years. But four years ago, we were told that an Obama presidency would have us palling around with terrorists and spelling depression. Instead, Osama bin Laden is dead and the economy, while nowhere near its Clintonian days, at least hasnt gone the way of Herbert Hoovers. Obama isnt the apostle of change he promised to be, proving more conservative than any Democrat since Woodrow Wilson. Romney doesnt pretend to be more than an Etch A Sketch for right-wingers political fantasies, and in most ways hed be a whiter shade of Obama. But thats not necessarily a bad thing. The country is in mending mode, and considering where its been, its not doing too terrible a job of it. Nor is the world anywhere near its hair-trigger anxieties of Cold War years, despite Israels saber-rattling over Irans nukes and continuing deceptions about its own. This election may yet prove to be one of the least consequential of our lifetimes, if only medias loudest talking heads would lower the volume a bit. As for the demise of bi-partisanship, every time I hear that old moan Im reminded of Roger Griswold and Matthew Lyon. Griswold was a Congressman from Connecticut, Lyon a Congressman from Vermont. They were from opposite parties. They despised each other. During one vague proceeding on the floor of the House, Griswold charged Lyon with cowardice. Lyon spat in Griswolds face. Griswolds motion to expel Lyon failed to get the required two-thirds majority. So Griswold, right after the chaplains opening prayer one day, attacked Lyon with a cane. Lyon defended himself with fire tongs. A motion to reprimand both men failed by one vote. That was back when the Founders were still founding John Adams was president, Thomas Jefferson was vice president, Alexander Hamilton was scheming left and right. When George Washington died a year after that incident, Jefferson gladly skipped the funeral. Partisanship had estranged the two that much. The 185 towns that offered up eulogies to Washington drew a distinct divide with those that didnt. It was the countrys earliest version of red and blue geography. That, too, is part of the nations DNA. Partisanship isnt the problem, as the nations hyper-partisan but creative founding years proved. Lack of partisanship is. Floridas one-party state eliminates the need for bi-partisanship. But its not producing better governance for Floridians. Partisanship and divided government balance interests, force debate, compel imaginative solutions. George W. Bush was an extremely partisan president who had little more than contempt for Democrats. But he got things done, unfortunate though those things were (two pointless wars, two massive tax cuts, the unfunded expansion of Medicare). Obamas mistake was for too long to subordinate leadership to the mirage of bi-partisanship with an opposition that had no intention of dealing, and for the same reason that Romney could strap 47 percent of the nation to the roof of his campaign as excess luggage. Should he win, Obama may yet make the next four years the transformational term his first four could have been, but only if he abandons all pretenses of pretend harmony in favor of what transformational presidents must do: lead.

PETERSBURG Northside Hospital recently was named one of the nations Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by the Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. Northside Hospital was recognized by the Joint Commission for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, childrens asthma, stroke and venous thrombo embolism, as well as inpatient psychiatric services. Northside Hospital is one of 620 hospitals in the United States earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Northside Hospital was recognized for its achievement on the following measure sets: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. The ratings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to the Joint Commission during the 2011 calendar year. Each of the hospitals that were named as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures met two 95 percent performance thresholds on 2011 accountability data. First, each hospital achieved performance of 95 percent or above on a single, composite score that includes all the accountability measures for which it reports data to the Joint Commission, including measures that had fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients. Second, each hospital met or exceeded 95 percent performance on every accountability measure for which it reports data to the Joint Commission, excluding any measures with fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients. A 95 percent score means that a hospital provided an evidencebased practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities to provide the practice. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice for example, giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery, and providing a home management plan for children with asthma.Caregiver groups meetHarmony Home Health and Linda S.

Call the Chamber for an application or more information: 727-392-3245.Seminole Chamber member Rhonda Sanborn wishes to thank Firefighter/EMTs Mike Davis and Matt Seib of the Seminole Fire Department, Bshift, for their assistance which resulted recently in saving the life of an animal. Rhonda, who is the Hospitality Education Director for the Sr. Petersburg/Clearwater Convention Visitors Bureau, was already to go to work Aug. 23, when she found a bunny stuck between the two front tires and body of her car. Trying to snack on some wires, the rabbit wedged itself so tightly that it couldnt be coaxed out, or pulled out, without being caused severe harm. Not wanting to spend precious time looking up phone numbers, Rhonda went in person to Seminole Fire Station 29 to get help. After ensuring there was enough coverage for their firehouse, Mike and Matt travelled to Rhonda's house to assess the situation. They raised the car with a jack and loosened some car parts. With safety gloves on, they managed to pry the frightened, and slightlyscratched bunny out. Before setting it free, the firefighters cleaned it off and made sure it wasnt too damaged to let go.

On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of his best friends Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more to celebrate his beloved daughter Maviss 118th birthday.

And it seems that the blood-crazed demon called The Jersey Devil may no longer be just a myth.

But when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, things start to get strange. It turns out that the castle is inhabited by evil demons but Kane and his men push on deeper into the keep, hell-bent for treasure. His men are picked off one by one and eventually Kane is left alone facing down a 10-foot beast ... the Reaper. The demon tells Kane that hes come from Hell specifically to get him. Though Kane manages to escape the demon, he knows that he must redeem himself by renouncing violence and living a life of peace and purity. It isnt long before his newfound spirituality is tested when he journeys across an England ravaged by diabolical human raiders who fight under the command of a terrifying, masked Overlord. When he fails to stop the slaughter of a family that has befriended him, Kane vows to free their daughter, who has been enslaved even if it means putting his own soul in peril by renouncing his vow of peace. His search brings him face to face with the brother he thought dead and the evil sorcerer who has manipulated him for his own ends. In the process of saving the girl and defeating the magician, Kane learns that he has been saved from the Reaper in order to fulfill a new destiny.

Blair on vocals and drums; Derico Watson on vocals and drums; Anthony Wellington on bass, keyboards and vocals; Steve Bailey on bass, keyboards, trombone and vocals; and Dave Welsch on bass, trumpet, keyboards and vocals.

Greys ability to tell his thought-provoking stories through original songs, informed by a mixture of old school rhythm and blues and down-home roots rock n roll, has carried JJ Grey & Mofro from the backwoods of Florida to hundreds of concert stages across the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia. Singing with a passion and fervor directly influenced by his classic soul heroes, Greys deeply personal songs are steeped in the rhythms of his native home outside of Jacksonville.

Cirque du Soleils big top production Kooza, Nov. 8-25, under the white big top at Tropicana Field, One Tropicana Drive, St. Petersburg. Kooza tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world. The show is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mlange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor. The Innocents journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog. Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, Kooza explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement. For more information about Cirque du Soleil, visit cirquedusoleil.com.

Tickets start at $29.50. Call 893-7832 or visit TheMahaffey.com. The alternative rock band Weezer brings 20 years of hits to The Mahaffey. Weezer formed in Los Angeles in 1992 and had their first performance opening for actor/singer Keanu Reeves band Dogstar later that year. Over the course of the next year, the group played the club scene, ultimately scoring a deal with Geffen Records/DGC. To date, they have released nine fulllength albums, six EPs, and a DVD, selling more than nine million records in the United States. The groups lineup has changed since first coming onto the alt-rock scene in Current touring band mates include Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), and Scott Shriner (bass, backing vocals). Their debut album Weezer, aka The Blue Album, produced by Ric Ocasek, has been certified triple platinum in the United States, and remains the bands alltime bestseller. Upon completing the record, Weezer went on hiatus temporarily as Cuomo studied at Harvard. In 1996, Weezer recorded their sophomore album, Pinkerton. While it failed to become an immediate hit, it was a cult classic with fans (going gold in 2001). In 1997, distressed by the publics reaction to Pinkerton, the band took time off to regroup and plan its next move. While Rolling Stone named Pinkerton the Worst Album of 1996, they later rereviewed it and awarded it five stars, adding it to the Rolling Stone Hall of Fame in 2004. With the producer of their debut, Ric Ocasek, again at the helm, Weezer next recorded 2001s Weezer, aka The Green Album, which debuted at No. 4 and has since sold more than one million copies in the United States. In 2010, Weezer jumped from Geffen to independent label Epitaph, debuting Hurley at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 to make it the bands sixth top 10 album in a row. LOOKING AHEAD, from page 5B
