VIEWPOINTSBob DriverColumnist says he will stay put after the election. ... Page 13A. In the money By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Roger Fox admits it was a learning experience but a very successful effort. A recent car raffle conducted by the Seminole Kiwanis Club for the Seminole High School band boosters raised $27,381 after expenses, which will be used to help SHS band members make the trip to Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 1 for the Tournament of Roses Parade. The drawing was conducted Oct. 6 at Seminole High following the annual Seminole Sound Spectacular. Dale Miller, an exceptional student education teacher at SHS, was the winner of the grand prize a 2012 Mini Cooper Baker Street Limited Edition. Miller purchased a $25 raffle ticket only a week earlier during a band fundraiser at the Cali Shack on Seminole Boulevard. It turned out to be her lucky day. After paying about $7,500 in state sales and federal withholding taxes, Miller took delivery on Oct. 13. She was one of six winners in the drawing. Others were James Mock, who won a 2carat diamond from Alexis Diamond House; Anthony Cicotti, a Cape Cod vacation; Richard Slater, $100 dinner for two at the Sheraton Sand Key; Stacy Welton, $100 Salon West gift card; and Tim Stark, $50 Safety Harbor Spa gift card. Altogether, about 2,100 raffle tickets were sold raising just over $50,000 before the expense of paying for the car from Mini of Wesley Chapel. The raffle was a success, said Fox, who volunteers as corporate fundraiser for the band boosters. We owe the Kiwanis Club a big debt of gratitude. We couldnt have done it without them. Due to school rules, public school booster clubs cannot conduct raffles without approval of the Pinellas County School Board. Because that approval might have taken a few months to achieve, Fox decided to circumvent the school board by using the Kiwanis Club as the organizer of the raffle. It worked well. Another key, Fox said, was posting the raffle on www.old carraffle.com, which resulted in nearly 1,300 hits and the sale of additional raffle tickets. Me alone, I sold between 50 and 100 extra raffle tickets out of state (because of the website), Fox said. Altogether, there were a lot of sales (due to the website listing). I learned a lot, he added, and I would do it again. The effort to raise a large amount of money started late last spring when Fox met with band director Chip Wood. Fox told Wood something exciting was needed. Fox first approached Honda, the sponsor of the Rose Parade. But Honda couldnt help. Same thing at a couple of other auto dealerships. Then, a couple of weeks later, Fox mentioned his idea in passing to former Seminole High drum major Jack Rowland. Rowland, a former photographer and photo director for the Tampa Bay Times, had recently By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE A dedication for the first phase of a $22,500 solar farm at Seminole Vocational Education Center was held Oct. 19 at the school with a number of Pinellas school officials and city leaders on hand. Former SVEC director Peter Berry, who got the project rolling two years ago, spoke about the importance of solar energy and where the technology stands today. On June 8, SVEC installed a 22-panel solar power system that has the capacity to produce 5.2 kilowatts of electricity per hour. Because the system was new and testing had not yet been done, school officials had no idea how much savings it would produce. Last week, they announced some impressive numbers. Over a four-month period in 2012, compared to the same period a year earlier, SVEC saw a 19 percent savings in its electric consumption, which resulted in a four-month savings of $1,185.70. Funding for phase one of the system came through Perkins funding, or funding related to the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006, which provides about $1.3 billion in federal support for career and technical education programs. The move toward solar energy in the area is not new. The city of Seminole recently constructed two Public Works buildings that use solar panels, which annually produce 86,732 kilowatts of free electricity. Power not used by the city is sold back to the grid. In addition to its solar power efforts, SVEC also has Features Business . . . . . . . . .11-12A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . .14-15A County . . . . . . . . .2-3, 10A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Health . . . . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .7A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Seminole . . . . . . . . . . .6A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .14A The Beaches . . . . . . . . .16A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising INSIDESpecial Sections Welcome BackCOUNTYPinellas wants transfer of bridgePinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a recommendation from the county administrator Oct. 16 to transfer ownership of the Friendship Trail Bridge to Hillsborough County.

Romans 16:16 ...The churches of Christ Salute You 102512 NOAA says winter months could be cooler than normal Colder-than-normal temperatures are possible this December through February.Maps courtesy of NOAALooking at this map, Pinellas Countys forecast is split with inland areas getting a 33 percent chance of a wetter-than-normal winter and the remainder, including the barrier islands, having an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation. By SUZETTE PORTERColder-than-normal temperatures could be coming this December through February, so say climatology experts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Forecasters with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center revealed the annual Winter Outlook Oct. 18. They said cooler-than-average temperatures are possible in Hawaii and most of Florida, excluding the panhandle. The forecast map shows a 33 percent chance of cooler temperature for all of Pinellas County north to the Panhandle where equal chances of average temperatures are predicted. Southern Florida has a 40 percent chance of cooler temperatures. Warmer-than-average temperatures are possible in much of Texas, northward through the Central and Northern Plains and westward across the Southwest, the Northern Rockies, and eastern Washington, Oregon and California, as well as the northern twothirds of Alaska. This years forecast comes with a bit of a caveat, with climatologists pointing out that the outlook is less certain than previous years due to a wavering El Nino, expected to have developed by now. This is one of the most challenging outlooks weve produced in recent years because El Nio decided not to show up as expected, said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In fact, it stalled out last month, leaving neutral conditions in place in the tropical Pacific. When El Nio is present, warmer ocean water in the equatorial Pacific shifts the patterns of tropical rainfall that in turn influence the strength and position of the jet stream and storms over the Pacific Ocean and United States, according to a press release from NOAA. This climate pattern gives seasonal forecasters confidence in how the U.S. winter will unfold. An El Nio watch remains in effect because theres still a window for it to emerge.December 2010 was the coldest December since record keeping began at most sites around Tampa Bay. A good por tion of December 2010 was rather cool with temperatures averaging 7 to 11 degrees below normal for the month. According to records from the National Weather Service going back to 1914, the average temperature in St. Peters burg for December 2010 was 56.3 degrees down from 56.9 degrees in 1935, the previous record.The normal temper ature for St. Petersburg, according to the NWS, is 63.7 de grees.Precipitation outlookWetter-than-average conditions across the Gulf Coast states from the northern half of Florida to eastern Texas are possible for the coming winter, forecasters say. Looking at the map, Pinellas County is split with inland areas getting a 33 percent chance of a wetter-than-normal winter and the remainder, including the barrier islands, getting an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal precipitation. Chances of snow are extremely low. Measurable snowfall has never been recorded since recordkeeping began in St. Petersburg in 1948. Drier-than-average conditions are forecast for Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest and Northern California, including Idaho, western Montana, and portions of Wyoming, Utah and most of Nevada. Drier-than-average conditions are possible in the upper Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Missouri and eastern parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and western Illinois. The average annual total precipitation is about 49.58 inches in St. Petersburg. The heaviest one-day rainfall during the period of record was 12.20 inches at St. Petersburg on October 27, 1986. Winter begins Dec. 21.Tropical outlookThe 2012 Atlantic Hurricane season continues through Nov. 30. Sally Bishop, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management, reminds residents that hurricane season is certainly not over. Not by a long shot, Bishop said. In the late season, October and November, warm tropical Atlantic waters are pushed westward into the western Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico by the trade winds, Bishop said in the latest edition of the countys e-lert newsletter. These areas stay warmer than other areas of the tropics for longer. When the cold fronts arrive from Canada, they can push these storms into Floridas Gulf Coast. Late season hurricanes and tropical storms can bring storm surge, heavy rain, tornadoes and high winds just like the systems that form in August and September, Bishop said. The key is to not let your guard down, she said. The National Hurricane Center was issuing advisories Tropical Depression 18 Monday morning. The system was expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Sandy and track over Jamaica Wednesday morning before continuing on a path toward the Bahamas and then possibly Bermuda. A second system could form later this week, and early forecast tracking models show it moving east over open water, as many of tropical systems have done since September. Seventeen named storms had formed this year as of Oct. 21, nine hurricanes and one major hurricane, a category 3. NOAAs outlook, updated in August, calls for a total of 12 to 17 named storms to form in 2012, five to eight hurricanes and two to three major hurricanes. An average season sees 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. For more weather information, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

If accepted, it would end a relationship dating back to Oct. 15, 1997, when the Florida Department of Transportation transferred ownership of the Old Gandy Bridge to Pinellas and Hillsborough. The counties had lobbied to save the bridge for use as a trail linking Pinellas and Hillsborough, and FDOT eventually agreed to the plan. When FDOT transferred ownership of the bridge, the counties received $7 million the amount the state had planned to spend to demolish the old structure, which opened to traffic in 1956. The $7 million was used to refurbish the bridge with some money left over for operating and maintenance. The Friendship Trail Bridge opened to the public in 1999 with operations and maintenance governed by an interlocal agreement between the two counties. Thousands used the trail over the years and it quickly became a popular attraction for residents and guests. All was well until an engineering report issued in December 2008 said there was a potential that the bridge could collapse due to structural problems. Not long after, the trail bridge was closed permanently. In April 2010, engineers reassessed the condition of the bridge and gave a repair estimate of $48 million. The counties agreed the only course of action was to demolish the structure and started budgeting money to get it done. Hillsborough County put out a request for proposal for the demolition. American Bridge Company submitted a bid of $4.195 million to take down about 11,000 linear feet of the bridge, plus a bid of just over $1 million to remove the remaining 3,000 linear feet. Per the interlocal agreement, each county was expected to pay half the costs. Pinellas has already provided $2 million and agreed to put up an additional $515,000 to pay its share of the bid amount. Hillsborough County was expected to award the bid to American Bridge on April 4, 2012, but the matter was deferred to allow a citizen group working on a plan to save the old bridge a chance to present its case. A draft plan of the citizens group intent was received in May and, after review, Pinellas County staff expressed numerous concerns. Pinellas County recommended that plans continue to demolish the structure by awarding the bid to American Bridge. County Administrator Bob LaSala sent a letter to Hillsborough County Administrator June 27, stating concerns that if Hillsborough delayed awarding the bid, the demolition cost could go up, which could result in Hillsborough asking for more money from Pinellas. Given Pinellas Countys financial situation, I cannot recommend any further increase in contribution for demolition cost from Pinellas County in the future, LaSala wrote. He also expressed safety and liability concerns. Any additional delay to the demolition to the structure increases both counties exposure to the risk the deteriorated bridge presents, LaSala wrote. Merrill responded to LaSalas letter on June 28, writing that the Hillsborough Commission had voted June 27 not to award the bid for demolition. As you know there are proposals currently on the table from private groups advocating for the continued operation of the bridge for recreation and tourism, Merrill wrote. Additional due diligence on these proposals is required before a specific course of action can be recommended. The Hillsborough Commission has now given the advocacy groups more time to complete their due diligence. Merrill wrote that he had informed his commission that Pinellas was not willing to pay more than the $2 million plus the $515,000 for the demolition. LaSala now recommends that Pinellas transfer ownership of the bridge to Hillsborough County. The move would relieve Pinellas of all rights, obligations and liabilities regarding the bridge. The transfer would include two gateway towers, adjacent to the western end of the bridge on the condition that if the bridge is ever demolished and Hillsborough wants to dispose of the towers that Pinellas get a chance to move them to another location. Pinellas also agrees to move its restroom facility. If Hillsborough County agrees, the 1999 interlocal agreement would be terminated. LaSala told commissioners Oct. 16 that from what hes heard from Merrill, the Hillsborough commission is not likely to accept our offer. LaSala said if Hillsborough said no, discussions would continue. County Attorney Jim Bennett said Pinellas Countys obligation was to the demolition. LaSala added that the county was not obligated to be involved in any revamp, enhancement or rebuild. Commissioner Neil Brickfield asked if it was possible for Pinellas to take down its half of the bridge. We can explore that with the attorneys, engineers and environmentalists, LaSala said.

4A SEB Beacon, October 25, 2012 Photo by BOB McCLUREOfficials from Pinellas County Schools and the city of Seminole check out a new solar farm at Seminole Vocational Education Center. The 22-panel system has saved the school 19 percent in electric costs over the past four months.installed more efficient lighting throughout the school, which has also resulted in a noticeable difference in power usage. The solar system at SVEC consists of two strings of 11 SolarWorld Sunmodule panels using a Sunny Boy inverter, which converts the DC power into AC usage. Each panel produces 240 watts. The panels, which are aimed south, are mounted on eight 3-inch steel pipes that are embedded 70 to 80 inches in the ground and surrounded by 16 inches of concrete. Installation was done by SVEC carpentry, electrical and alternative energy students. The system is the only one of its size in use in Pinellas County Schools. The only other system in place is a smaller 1 kwh system at the St. Petersburg campus of Pinellas Technical Education Center. Solar systems, SVEC instructor Dan Bench said, typically pay for themselves in 10 to 12 years. Life expectancy on the inverter systems is between 25 and 30 years, and even longer on the panels. SVEC, from page 1Ajoined the sales team at Mini of Wesley Chapel.I mentioned the (the car raffle concept) to Jack and then, jokingly, a few weeks later I asked him hows that new car coming along? Fox said. Rowland took the passing comment to heart and approached his boss, Malcolm Cheek, the general manager of the Wesley Chapel dealership. Cheek gave his approval and Rowland went to work ordering the car in early June. As a longtime Mini Cooper enthusiast and the owner of three Minis, Rowland was the perfect person for the job. After assembly began in Oxfordshire, England, the sparkling black and gray vehicle was delivered to the dealership on July 26. The Baker Street edition, named for the address of fictional British detective Sherlock Holmes, features a 121-horsepower engine, a sixspeed automatic transmission, air conditioning, black 16-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, an onboard computer, leather steering wheel, a chrome exterior package, front fog lamps and more. The car also gets good fuel efficiency (28 miles per gallon in the city, 36 mpg highway). Minis are very popular for raffles, said Rowland. Theyre the kind of car that is a fun car to drive and its a car that is still relatively unique.

Heath outlined a comeback plan Oct. 18 that he said would dramatically reduce costs and put the bird rescue and rehabilitation facility on a path to financial stability. The challenges Heath and his associates face are formidable. A drop in income from donations in recent months has caused the Seabird Sanctuary to miss payroll payments for its paid employees. The Internal Revenue Service recently filed liens amounting to $187,000 against the sanctuary for nonpayment of payroll taxes. Compounding the problem is an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor for possible violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The nonprofit Seabird Sanctuary depends on donations for 100 percent of its operating income. Heath attributes most of the decrease in income to the state of the economy. The number of people donating to the charity has not declined, but the average amount donated is less, said Pam Dobyns, the sanctuarys PR director and spokeswoman. The decreased income has left the Seabird Sanctuary unable to meet all its financial obligations, and the paid employees have felt the brunt of the cutbacks. Dobyns said the sanctuarys priorities put the birds and their care first. The needs of the birds never stop, she said. Feeding and caring for the birds already there and responding to the daily inflow of sick and injured birds is an ongoing obligation. With personnel costs being the largest budget item, the Sanctuary was faced with the reality that it could not cover its payroll. Heath said the Sanctuary is working with the employees to get them caught up with their pay. They are also engaged with the IRS on a plan to pay off the lien at a reduced rate. Heath said he himself has not had a paycheck in months. Some of the employees are continuing to work for free, Dobyns said. Others have agreed to defer their paychecks. Some have left, and have expressed dissatisfaction with the sanctuary management. The organizations part-time volunteers are helping out to a greater degree than ever. Heath stressed that the Sanctuary has taken steps to reduce operating costs and maximize efficiencies. But some costs have dramatically increased. The price of bait fish, a big part of the voracious birds diet, has doubled, he said. While some have disputed that claim, local charter boat captain Travis Palladeno confirmed the price hike. Thats very true, said Palladeno. He said sardines in particular are in short supply and the cost is up. Effects from Tropical Storm Debby and from the BP oil spill in the Gulf have contributed to the problem, Palladeno said.A plan for recoveryThe comeback plan for the Sanctuary will play a critical role in assuring its future viability, Heath said. The key element is to move the facility from an employee-based to volunteer-based operation. It involves replacing paid employees with volunteers in non-critical positions. That wont be accomplished overnight, Heath said. But it is the goal, and the only way to significantly reduce the payroll costs,Photo by NANCY AYERSSuncoast Seabird Sanctuary Director Ralph Heath said the nonprofit bird rescue and rehabilitation facility has taken steps to reduce operating costs and maximize efficiencies.which make up the bulk of the sanctuarys expense, he said. We have a high payroll, and we have to deal with this, Heath said. Training of the volunteer base will be critical, said Dobyns. The volunteers will need to be motivated and know how to do their jobs, most of which involve caring for the avian inhabitants. They will have to know how to care for the birds, whose needs are often hands-on and can be complex, Dobyns said. The second part of the recovery plan involves selling assets and equipment not needed, and not related to the Sanctuarys mission. Finally, Heath said, We must continue to trim expenses wherever we can. The Seabird Sanctuary is also stepping up its fundraising efforts to increase donations. Upcoming is a Hallo-Wing party, and a joint promotion with the McDonalds in Madeira Beach where donors receive a card good for meal discounts. A Feed the Birds campaign is also being launched with a goal of raising $100,000, the cost of feeding the birds for one year. The comeback plan, when fully implemented, will bring significant, badly needed changes to the organization, Dobyns said, but we have to change the way we operate. There is one area of the Sanctuarys operation that will not change, Heath stressed. In dealing with our problems, all of the birds are, and will continue to be, well cared for and well fed, he said, inviting anyone to come out and see for themselves. Heath said he is confident the comeback plan for the Sanctuary will succeed. We have been here since 1972, and we plan to be here at least through 2072, he said.Help is neededHeath said anyone wanting to know more about the Sanctuarys needs can go to www.SeabirdSanc tuary.com.Madeira Seafood Festival to kick offMADEIRA BEACH The 31st annual Johns Pass Seafood Festival is set Friday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Oct. 28, at Johns Pass Village.

The 2013 Classic Beauties of Florida calendar is on sale for $10 at www.Cougarsofflorida .com as well as at calendar signings in the Tampa area, the schedule of which can be found online. The 2013 theme is Classic Beauties of Florida and a portion of proceeds will benefit Quantum Leap Farm of Odessa, a nonprofit, nationally-recognized equestrian program that serves injured and disabled civilian adults and children, military service members and their families. The Cougars of Florida have now issued two calendars that celebrate women over 40 who look great, feel fantastic and give back to their communities by participation in such endeavors as the charity publications, a news release said. The first edition celebrating that raised $11,000 for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium; a second edition not only raised funds for Big Cat Rescue, a large exotic cat sanctuary, but was also sent to soldiers overseas in support of their service. After Veterans Day the organization shipped more than 300 calendars free of charge. The 2013 edition will have a new look illustrating this years horsepower theme through visuals that utilize horse and sports car motifs. In selecting the recipient of this years proceeds, publisher and Tampa resident Kathleen Slaven said, Im not only an animal lover but a 25-year owner of horses. I have such a soft spot in my heart for these amazing creatures and their special connection to humans. I really feel that Quantum Leap Farm and their beautiful mission is deserving of assistance from our Florida ladies. The founder of Q.L.F., Edie Dopking, said, I was thrilled at Kathleens proposal as I have often thought of doing a calendar for our organization but lack of staff and time have prevented us from ever pursuing the idea. More information on the farm and the valuable service it provides can be found at www.QuantumLeapFarm.org.

Two subjects were arrested on 24 charges including two for driving under the influence, three for driving without a valid drivers license and seven for driving on a suspended or revoked license. Five were arrested for possession of marijuana, one for felony violation of probation, two for possession of a controlled substance, one for disorderly intoxication and two for possession of cocaine. In addition, 13 vehicles were impounded and 20 citations were issued. Average intrusion time was one minute and 39 seconds.Trio charged with second degree murderMADEIRA BEACH Three men suspected of killing a Madeira Beach man were charged with second degree murder Oct. 16. Michael Merrill, 57, a live-aboard commercial fisherman died Oct. 4 from injuries he received in a Sept. 12 beating aboard his vessel docked at a marina just south of the Tom Stuart Causeway on Madeira Beach. Deputies arrested three suspects, all transients, between Sept. 14 and 18. Each was charged with aggravated battery, according to a report by Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Timothy John Schuyler, 31, and Joshua Eugene Shroyer, 38, have remained in the Pinellas County Jail since their arrests in September. Kord Lynn Tucker, 38, released on a $10,000 surety bond Sept. 15 and re-arrested Oct. 16. Deputies say a previous disagreement might have triggered the incident that happened about 2 a.m. aboard Merrills vessel, the Lilly Anne, a 33-foot commercial fishing boat. The three suspects allegedly boarded the Lilly Anne and confronted the 57-year-old man late on the night of Sept. 11. He told them to leave, and reportedly threatened them with a knife. Reports show the three suspects left the boat at that time, but returned to the boat around 2 a.m. and began beating Merrill with hand tools and other objects. He was able to escape by diving into the water and hiding under the dock. A friend found Merrill a short time later, and called for assistance. Merrill was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of various internal and head injuries.Sketch released of assault suspectPALM HARBOR Pinellas County sheriffs detectives released a composite sketch of a man wanted in connection with an attack on a 49-year-old Palm Harbor woman. The attack happened about 8:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at 3420 Brian Road South in Palm Harbor. The suspect is a white male, about age 22, who was wearing long light gray cargo shorts and black sneakers. He was not wearing a shirt or socks. According to investigators, the victim had just finished jogging and was walking in the roadway, when an unknown suspect, grabbed her from behind, put his left arm around her neck in a chokehold and brought her to the ground. The suspect then touched her inappropriately. Detectives say the victim began to scream and the suspect got up and ran away ahead of her. She was only able to see him from behind. A neighbor drove past. The victim flagged him down and explained that she had just been assaulted and provided him with a general description. The neighbor then drove her home and began to circulate the area. He told deputies he saw the suspect running down the road and said he was able to get a look at his face. The Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit responded to track the area with no results. The neighbor has assisted detectives in developing a composite sketch of the suspect. Anyone with information that may assist detectives in identifying the suspect is asked to contact Detective Jeff Capra of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 582-6200. This is a sketch of a man wanted in connection with an attack on a 49-year-old Palm Harbor woman.

Now and then dolphin conservation is triumphant Photo by ANN WEAVERVidalia, a local bottlenose dolphin calf, is a conservation success story. Although he was freed nearly one year ago from the fishing line that had entangled his body for four months, his many scars are still easy to see. This picture shows the scar on the right corner of his mouth.Free-ranging marine mammals like bottlenose dolphins handle many objects at sea, from fish to seaweed toys, but are sometimes most regrettably forced to handle discarded fishing line. They dont handle it, of course. Once tangled in it, they can only endure. In the summer of 2011, a bottlenose dolphin calf less than six months old became entangled in fishing line. Dolphin-like, Vidalia swam continuously. But helplessly encased, each pump of his tail made the fishing line slice into him like a saw cutting wood, slashing the corners of his mouth, right pectoral (arm) fin, left eye and dorsal fin. A trailing wad of fishing line slapped his side unceasingly. Vidalia sometimes struggled against his noose by leaping around wildly. At other times, wearying of his struggle, he tried to clamber onto his mothers back, a most unusual thing for any but the youngest newborn dolphins to do. Vidalia endured his body noose of fishing line for four months until November 2011 when he was finally captured in a tiny St. Petersburg cove, cut free of fishing line and set free by a state-wide network of marine mammal biologists led by Dr. Randy Wells, and which included yours truly and Capt. John Heidemann, as told in Dolphin Watchs Baby dolphin rescue is happy ending story. Vidalias maritime rescue was particularly successful because Vidalia and his mother Valiant stayed around Johns Pass afterward, which meant that Capt. Heidemann and I have been able to observe them regularly and provide rare follow-up data. Happily, we can report that, thanks to the rescue, young Vidalia returned to the normal life of a young dolphin growing up at his mothers side. In so doing, hes provided valuable evidence of healing times at sea. Behaviorally, Vidalia zipped through the stages of healthy calf development more quickly than normal; after all, he had a lot of catching up to do. While entangled, Vidalia swam at his mothers side. In the months following the rescue, he became progressively bolder, initially swimming near his foraging mom and finally speeding around her at ever-increasing (developmentally normal) distances. One January day, Vidalia was absolutely animated. To his swift circles around mom, he added a brief bout of surfing the wake of a passing yacht; catching a fish but watching helplessly as a tern stole it; and goosing a cormorant into flight. His bright energy reminded me of another entangled calf, Juno, who behaved with similar wild abandon following his release from his snare of fishing line (Dolphin Watchs Cutting to the chase). By May, Vidalia showed more focus on fishing, which left his mother with an extra-large supply of milk for him (Dolphin Watchs Its Time We had a Little Chat). As spring turned to summer, Vidalia showed a different form of normal dolphin behavior by expanding his social life. He began to intermingle with a variety of dolphin schoolmates besides his mom, from younger calves to big bull members of the Bowery Boys super-alliance. Physically, Vidalias delicate dolphin skin is primarily designed to be in contact with seawater, so weeks of fishing line entanglement wounded him in many places. The endless chafing of the trailing wad of fishing line that slapped his side unceasingly produced a hefty patch of big white bumps. This patch showed little sign of healing for three months and took half a year to heal completely (November 2011 to May 2012). The fishing line left several marks, which may be permanent. The fishing line that slashed his tissues with every pump of his tail cut most deeply into the bottom front of his dorsal fin (the fin on the back that you see when a dolphin surfaces). It took six months for the swelling to go down and the lighter discolored pigment to match the rest of his body color. The asymmetrical severing action of the fishing line created a large gap in the tissue that, almost a year later, has yet to fill in. This is different than two other dolphins that sustained wounds at the bottom front of the dorsal fin; Juno and Strips gap filled in within weeks of injury. The furrow-like dents created by the sawing action of fishing line across the corners of the mouth and left eye are still clearly visible when Vidalia pokes his head out or leaps out of the water, which he now does just like any other normal dolphin.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Clearwater Audubon Society this $25,000 Progress Energy grant supports the Eagle/Osprey Watch Program, which involves erecting and maintaining osprey platforms, collecting nest status data, retrofitting structures for avian safety and providing educational programs to the public regarding birds of prey, including topics such as climate change, energy and how to help in preventing wildlife outages by reporting nest building on power lines. Audubon volunteers analyzed osprey-nesting structures and identified the need to replace up to 20 existing structures, which are no longer safe, within the next two to three years. The society has been working on osprey conservation and management with Progress Energy for four years.

There also will be live music under the big tent as well as drink specials. Stone crab season in Florida runs from Oct. 15 through May 15, and harvesting is highly regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture. Stone crabs are captured live in traps and returned live to the sea immediately after the claws are removed. This enables the crabs to regenerate their missing claw. The stone crab can regenerate its claws three to four times. Florida law forbids the taking of whole stone crabs. Fishermen are allowed to take claws at least 2 3/4 inches long and are required to return stone crabs safely to the water. After the claws are harvested, they are fully cooked in fresh water, and then flash chilled in ice water. The cooking of fresh stone crab claws immediately after harvest prevents the delicate meat from sticking to the inside of the shell and the ice water plunge locks in the natural sweet flavor and keeps the freshly cooked claw meat rich and succulent. Cooters annual Crab Fest has become a tradition on Clearwater Beach for both locals and visitors. While stone crabs are generally the top draw to Crab Fest, we like to offer other crab varieties to our guests as well, so theyll have plenty of options, said Carol Mears, owner of Cooters, in a press release. Our Crab Feast Platter, which is loaded with an assortment of crab, has always been a popular choice. Our full menu also will be available throughout the weekend. For event information, call 462-2668.Holiday Inn hosts bake-offCLEARWATER Holiday Inn & Suites Clearwater Beach employees recently participated in the National Lee Denim Day. Employees donated $5 to wear jeans to work on the first Friday in October. Funds raised go to the fight against breast cancer. To add a little twist and fun to the day, Holiday Inn & Suites Clearwater Beach started a bake-off between its departments last year. All entries had to incorporate the color pink. Guests staying at the resort served as judges. The items are judged on creativity, appearance and taste. Last year, the housekeeping team won with a strawberry cheesecake. This year the winner is the engineering departments dirt pudding.

To understand my motivation you have to look no further than my four sons and four grandsons to know I want to do everything in my power to make Pinellas County, and Florida, a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I want my sons and grandsons to have the same access to quality education and well paying jobs that my generation was blessed to have. Moving to Pinellas County in 1985, I helped operate a small retail business in St. Pete Beach and worked for not-for-profit agencies before getting involved as a member of the South Pasadena Planning and Zoning Board. Since then I have been honored to be elected Commissioner, then as Mayor of South Pasadena. I have always believed that democracy only works if its citizens participate. Over the years I have put that philosophy to work creating an award winning, nationally recognized YMCA Youth Enhancement Skills Program designed to combat the high rate of middle school student suspensions and arrests. I have also volunteered my time at many of our local organizations such as the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center, the St. Petersburg Museum of History, and the Boys and Girls Club. I believe my background as a community leader, businesswoman, and Mayor give me a wide perspective on the needs of District 69, and many of our local leaders agree. I have received the support of seven of our beach community Mayors, including Mayor McFarlin of St. Pete Beach, Mayor Minning of Treasure Island, and Mayor Palladeno of Madeira Beach to name just a few. I look forward to earning your endorsement with your vote on November 6. If you have any questions or need any further information about me or my positions on the issues, please feel free to call or email me. I will answer your questions directly and truthfully.

Viewpoints 13A Beacon, October 25, 2012Flas shrinking newspaper corpsMEMORANDUM FROM: A newspaper dinosaur TO: Florida citizens The traditional newspaper is dying. Large cities New Orleans, Syracuse, Harrisburg no longer have papers delivered to homes seven days a week. Theres really nothing that can be done about it. Inkon-paper newspapers dont make enough money and its only going to get worse. Eventually, newspaper owners will figure out how to make a decent profit delivering information digitally or simply go out of business. Most people dont care. After all, you can get your news from your iPhone. But the tweets and blog posts are not giving you enough of the substantial news you really need. All these dying newspapers are surviving by cutting costs. That means getting rid of journalists. That means there are fewer of us asking probing questions, said Mary Ellen Klas, the Miami Heralds Tallahassee bureau chief. Klas has been covering Florida politics since 1988. She pointed out that more than 100 members of the media TV, radio, newspapers, websites covered the 2000 session of the Legislature. In 2010, only 40 covered it and I suspect that last year it was down to 30. Klas is an optimist by nature and she noted that journalists still wield considerable power in Tallahassee. Twitter and Facebook and iPads transmit information so quickly these days that a story or blog post published on a newspapers website can affect behavior in the capital with incredible speed, she said. Also, even though there are fewer journalists covering state government and far fewer covering local governments good journalists still produce some powerful public-service journalism. But there just are not enough boots on the ground. An American Society of News Editors survey released in April documented the thinning of the ranks. In 1990, there were 56,900 editors and reporters working at U.S. newspapers; this year there are only 40,600. And the numbers continue to fall. Also, many reporters today are young, inexperienced and low-paid. They lack the institutional knowledge and vital sources that the departing veteran reporters had. With fewer talented journalists on the beat, politicians, lobbyists and businessmen have learned they can wait it out when they find themselves in a mess, Klas said. When there were more reporters who had the resources of profitable newspapers behind them, sleazy public officials and their cronies had to endure relentless scrutiny. If youre a junkie for international and national news, your addictions will be taken care of. The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the TV networks will survive covering presidential campaigns, terrorism and meltdowns in the Middle East. But if you worry about the judgment, intelligence and ethics of your local school board, youre increasingly out of luck. Streaming the school board meetings live does not provide the same information that a smart and dogged newspaper reporter can. And there probably arent reporters at your school board meetings these days. Kudos to Mary Ellen Klas and the others in Floridas shrinking corps of savvy newspaper reporters. Theyre doing their best to hold public officials accountable. But there are not enough of them these days and there will be fewer in the years ahead. Youll miss them when theyre gone.A former managing editor of The Palm Beach Post and Cleveland Plain Dealer, Tom OHara is a national columnist for Florida Voices.Extend half-mill tax for schoolsBuried under the sea of state constitutional amendments on the Nov. 6 election ballot is an important referendum issue that many voters may gloss over. They shouldnt. Voter approval of the continuation of the half-mill property tax for school operating expenses is critical for the school district to cope with the challenges of providing a good education for students. Through the end of the 2010-2011 school year, the tax has supplemented teachers salaries by an average of $3,180 per year and supplied schools with more than $38 million in reading materials, wireless mobile computer labs, Smart Boards, up-to-date software, art supplies, band uniforms, musical instruments and many other items that enhance teaching and learning, school officials said. County voters first approved an additional one-half mill ad valorem (property) tax for school district operating expenses Nov. 2, 2004. The tax period ran from July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2009. Ninety-two percent of high school teachers using laptops said they had witnessed improvement in the quality and completion rate of student assignments, the results of a district poll showed. Ninety-one percent of students said the devices made learning easier and were making them more successful in their academic pursuits. As a result of the tax, every reading classroom and every content classroom (in Pinellas County) is now equipped with a classroom library filled with diverse and up-to-date materials. As far as accountability, schools have addressed such concerns about the tax, which generated about $28.3 million for this school year. An Independent Citizens Referendum Oversight Committee was created to monitor expenditures to make sure the money is spent as directed by the voters. The cost to the average single-family member is minimal. One-half mill equals $50 per year per $100,000 in taxable value. In 2012, the average single-family home in Pinellas County was valued at $137,911. With a $25,000 homestead exemption, the average homeowner paid $56.46 per year, or less than $5 a month or about 15 cents per day. For homes valued at $250,000, with a $25,000 homestead exemption, homeowners would pay $112.50 a year, which amounts to $9.38 a month or 31 cents per day, school officials said. Referendum funds also are supporting our most vulnerable children through dedicated intervention programs for remedial readers; greater access to FCAT preparation software; waived instrument rental fees for students who cant afford them; paid admission for field trips to museums and art galleries that some children would not otherwise be able to visit; and software and other materials to support struggling students, the website said. Support is widespread throughout the county for the tax, such as the County Council of PTAs, multiple chambers of commerce and the Pinellas Realtor Organization. Little, if any, criticism has been levied against the continuation of the tax. Thats not surprising, especially in the wake of such compelling arguments put forth by the school district in support on the measure. Tampa Bay Newspapers recommends that voters vote yes on the school tax issue. With Election Day less than two weeks from now, many Americans are planning to abandon the USA forever, in case their favored candidate loses the presidential race. Today if you throw twenty rocks into a crowd, ten of them will strike people who believe another four years of Barack Obama will bankrupt America, turn it into a socialist hell, and hand the country over to illegal immigrants. The other ten stones will land on voters who would rather die than live in an America ruled by a fascist dictator, Mitt Romney, who would send poor people (anyone worth less than $25 million) into poverty camps to starve, die of untreated health problems and be tortured for having received any kind of government aid. Im exaggerating, of course, so please dont email me that Ive overstated things. Im only making fun of anyone who believes the sky will fall if the wrong guy wins the White House on Nov. 6. It wont. Life will go on, and will often be a pain in the neck, the way it always has been. However, if you are serious about finding a new life in a foreign country, youd better start planning right away, before the Kenyans or the Mormons take full control of our nation next Jan. 20, after which all will be lost. You should first go on the Web and research the best countries to live in. Ive tried that, but its not much help. Youll find several lists of the ten best countries, and they all vary. The lists are followed by the widely varying comments of people who have lived overseas; most of these folks sound like mental patients, as you will quickly learn when you read their opinions. So where does that leave you? Confused, to say the least. The picture gets further muddled when you realize that a 30-year-old with lots of money may not want to emigrate to the same place as a 50-year-old with four teenagers and $300 to his name. Other factors to be considered include these: Do you smoke a lot of marijuana? (Hollands the place for that.) What foreign languages do you speak? Do you require lots of fresh vegetables and salads? If so, stay away from Latvia and Lithuania, whose favorite food is pork sausage, or so Ive read. Do you enjoy the change of seasons? If thats the case, scratch Siberia off your list; Siberia is always cold. If by chance you love to be surrounded by falling-down drunks, put Russia at the top of your rankings. Surveys suggest that Russians drink more vodka than water. Many infants are born with a 0.12 blood alcohol level. If street riots bother you youd better avoid Spain, Greece and a few other members of the European Union that are now experiencing hard times. If I had to choose another country to live in, Id lean toward New Zealand. I dont know why. I look at a world map and New Zealand seems to be tucked snugly down there, a thousand miles from anywhere, safe from all the troublesome goings-on the world is heir to. The people speak English, although the native Maoris tend to lapse into Maori after a few beers. Are you a dog-lover? Then the United Kingdom may be a good home. The English cant stand each other, so they worship dogs. Thats a quote I stole from somewhere. I have visited England a few times, and I like the way the Brits are reserved. They are the opposite of Facebook, where everyone wants to be your friend and tell you about their bowel movements. In England, firemen wont rescue someone from a burning building until proper introductions are made. Many years ago I lived for several months in Italy, and enjoyed it. I was drinking then, and exulted in sitting for hours in a trattoria scarfing pasta and swilling wine. The more I drank the better I spoke Italian, especially if I was with people from Naples or Sicily, where the natives forget to enunciate and merely gargle vowels at you like all those mobsters in The Sopranos. I dont think Id like Italy today. Im not Catholic, but I always felt reassured by the eternal solidity of the Papacy. But today we read that the Popes secretary has been telling tales out of school, and pretty soon we may learn that the Sistine Chapel ceiling was painted not by Michelangelo but by some fancy faker from Florence. To anyone planning to seek a new country after Election Day, I wish you good luck and happiness. I intend to stay here in the USA and root for all members of the next Congress, plus whoever ends up in the White House. Those poor devils will need all the support we can give them.

Send him an email at tralee71@comcast.net.If you move away from the USAI recently flew a non-stop (round trip) flight from Tampa, Florida to Las Vegas and I was amazed with the incompetence that I experienced on the airline. When the plane left Tampa and landed in Las Vegas, (around 4 1/2 hours later) the pilot was unable to bring his plane up to his assigned gate, due to another plane sitting at his assigned gate, because the ground crews were all inside of the airport terminal, awaiting the passing of some minor lightning flashes, that was seen within 8 miles of the airport that day. We were told that by our pilot. All of the passengers (including me) had to sit in our seats (for about an hour and a half) before any of those ground crews decided to come out of the terminals again, and continue on with all of their ground crew jobs that day, and before any of us were ever allowed to exit that Southwest jet that day. Eight days later, on Aug. 22, my out-bound flight was scheduled to leave Las Vegas for Tampa at 10 a.m. in the morning, but the airlines wouldnt let any of us board that out-bound flight of theirs that morning, due to all of their ground crews being, once again, inside of the terminals, due to it raining outside the terminal that morning, and due to some lightning flashes that was seen (again) by them within 5 to 8 miles of the airport that morning. As we were waiting the boarding of that plane that morning, (around 3 hours) I looked outside of those terminal windows, and I was amazed at what I was seeing outside. I saw some little luggage trailers outside that were stacked with luggage, all sitting out in the rain. Some of the luggage that was sitting on those rained on trailers outside were covered up with tarps, and some were not covered up with tarps. Needless to say, all of the passengers on that flight were very irritated that morning when they had seen what I had seen out of those windows, and when they had to sit in that Las Vegas airport for hours and hours that morning, awaiting their flight back to Tampa. No one likes to see his luggage outside getting rained on, and no one likes to wait for hours and hours in a terminal to board a plane, simply because some ground crews are afraid of a little bit of rain, or afraid of a few lightning flashes in the sky, that have been noticed (on their computers) 5-8 miles away from an airport. Im a Florida plumbing contractor, and I have been working out in the rain, and out in the lightning, and out in the wind, and out in the ice, and out in the snow, and out in the heat, and out in the mud, etc. etc., ever since that I have been working in the plumbing trade, (since 1963) and I have never been afraid to work in any of that stuff in all of my many years of working in the plumbing trade, so whats wrong with all of those airline ground crews of today? Are they (and all of their bosses) a bunch of wimps and cowards today, or what? Plumbers are known as problem solvers in this world, so (below) is my solution for the above weather problems that I encountered with the airlines recently. Every airport in America needs to put a simple carport covering over all of their gates (and planes) at all of their terminals. That way, all of the planes in America would be out of the rain, and out of the lightning, and out of all of the storms, etc., when they come into all of those gate ports or those plane ports to do all of their re-fueling and all of their loading and unloading of both passengers and luggage, etc., would they not? If this country can put coverings over most all of their football fields, etc., then why dont the people of this country get together and demand that coverings be placed over all of the airplanes that they have to board in this country? People hate sitting in jets for hours and hours on those airport tarmacs, and they hate sitting for hours and hours in some airport terminal, just because some ground crews are afraid to come out of those terminals and continue on with doing their jobs. So just think of how many millions of happy fliers there would be (again) here in America, if all of the airlines of America would all get together with one another, and start demanding (from all of those airport owners) some simple coverings over all of Americas airplanes (and gates) that are in this country, and around this world? When I got back to Tampa, and went to baggage claim, I found that my suitcase was wet on its bottom side. Mine must have been one of those that I had seen out in the rain, there at Las Vegas.

A young girls popularity is in jeopardy when she is forced to track down her kid brother instead of going to the party of the year. Yet her kid brother shows her what popularity is all about and her rush to find her brother with her nerd neighbor shows her that popularity might not be exactly what she really wants. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The SessionsGenre: Drama Cast: John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy and Moon Bloodgood Director: Ben Lewin Rated: R Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of Californiabased journalist and poet Mark OBrien, The Sessions tells the story of a man who lived most of his life in an iron lung who is determined at age 38 to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapist and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his dream a reality.The Loneliest PlanetGenre: Drama Cast: Hani Furstenberg, Gael Garca Bernal and Bidzina Gujabidze Director: Julia Loktev Not rated Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they are backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture thats over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it cant be undone. Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves. All the while, they are not alone. They are always with the guide, who witnesses their every move. The film plays off the relationship between young travelers and the places they travel to, between guide and guided. But at heart, it is a love story a tale about betrayal, both accidental and deliberate, about masculinity, failure and the ambiguities of forgiveness.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

PETERSBURG The Stone Hill Science Fiction Association will host Necronomicon 2012 Floridas science fiction, fantasy and horror convention Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26-28, at the Hilton Bayfront, 333 First St. NE. This years guest of honor will be speculative fiction writer Linnea Sinclair. Sinclairs novel Gabriels Ghost (written under the pseudonym Megan Sybil Baker) earned her the 2006 RITA Award in the Best Paranormal Romance category from the Romance Writers of America. The convention will feature informative panels and a full schedule of events and programs including the annual Cthulhu Memorial Eye Scream Social, the Ygor Party Ghourmet Bheer Tasting, ongoing video and anime rooms, a masquerade, costume contest, trivia contests and an art show. Attendees also will enjoy plenty of workshops and demonstrations as well as filking. For those unfamiliar with this convention tradition, filk songs, as explained on Stone Hills Necronomicon website, are parodies of real songs, and originals, too, all with a fanish bent. Filk songs may be about a favorite book, film, television show, game, comic book or other science fiction or fantasy content. Filkers can participate in song sessions throughout the weekend. For space buffs, Jeff Mitchell will host a presentation on settling Mars.Guest of honorAccording to her bio, Linnea Sinclair has managed to use all her college degrees (journalism and criminology) but hasnt soothed the yearning in her soul to travel the galaxy. Thats why she writes in the field of science fiction and fantasy romance. A former news reporter and retired private detective, Sinclairs recent releases from Bantam include the third book and fourth books in the Dock Five series, Hopes Folly (2009) and Rebels and Lovers (2010). Her essay column for Futures magazine was a Pushcart Literary nominee in 1998, and in 2002-03 she was a John W. Campbell award nominee forNecronomicon 2012Science fiction, fantasy, horror fans converge on St. Petersburg for annual conventionbest new science fiction author. Sinclair resides in Naples in the winter months and in Columbus, Ohio during the summer. In addition to writing, Sinclair teaches seminars in both the craft of writing for all levels of writers and private investigation techniques for mystery authors via online writing sites and at writing conventions nationwide. In the authors press kit, Sinclair discusses what led her to a career as a writer. Ive been writing for so long I honestly cant remember a time when I wasnt writing, Sinclair said. Im an only child and making up stories in my head was a favorite pastime. I began putting them on paper in junior high school. In my 20s I was active in [Star Trek] fan-fic. Sinclair didnt actually start writing full time until she had completed successful careers as a news reporter and a private investigator. For those who havent personally delved into the subgenre of science fiction romance, Sinclair offers her own definition. Science fiction romance is, at its core, a science fiction/speculative fiction novel that has equally at its core and in its theme the romantic question between the main characters, she explained. Its written so that if either core element science/speculative fiction or romance were removed, the story would collapse. Visit www.stonehill.org/necro.htm. Linnea Sinclair

PETERSBURG The 23rd annual Sunshine State Acoustic Music Camp is planned Nov. 1618 at Boyd Hill Environmental Studies Area, 2900 31st St. S. A wide variety of classes are offered, from guitar playing, both for beginners and in various more advanced styles, to mandolin, harp, lap dulcimer, banjo, fiddle, bass, concertina, harmonica, Autoharp, Irish flute, ukulele, percussion, singing, harmonizing, songwriting, performance techniques and music theory. Carroll Smith, who did not begin playing music until he was in his 50s and is now an award-winning musician, hosts a special class called Never Too Late for people wanting to begin making music later in life. Unlike many camps the instructors do not just teach classes. They are available throughout the camp to offer students oneon-one help. The camp is open to the public. Preregistration is strongly advised, although walk-ins are welcome. The Sunshine State camp is designed for all ages. The youngest registered student in the camps history has been of elementary school age and the oldest, Elsa Jennings, is 98 years old. Beginners are welcome and a special tutoring area is available where they can get one-on-one help. In addition to classes, there are student shows at lunchtime each day and on Saturday evening a major concert featuring performances by the camp instructors and special guests. The concert is free to camp registrants and $15 for the general public. Complete detailed information, schedule, pictures, directions, are available on the camp website, at www.cgmusicman.com /camp/. For further information, call camp director Charley Groth at 585-5678 before 10 p.m.Country Jubilee set at Heritage VillageLARGO The 34th Country Jubilee: A Centennial Celebration comes to Pinellas Countys Heritage Village on Saturday, Oct. 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For the first time, James Anthony Schnurs long-awaited book, Historic Pinellas County A Centennial History will be available for sale and the author will hold a book signing. More than 120 food and craft vendors will be lining the walkways in and around Heritage Village, displaying stained-glass items, handcrafted jewelry, wooden items, seasonal crafts, quilts, products made of natural stone, plus soaps, jams, nuts and pickles. Clothes for the American Girl dolls are available as well. The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office will be registering voters at this years Country Jubilee. Florida folk, bluegrass and country music will be performed live throughout the day. The entertainment will include 13-yearold Carmen Brandy who made her first trip to Nashville in 2011. The ever-popular flea market is bigger and better this year, organizers say. The Lowe House will contain holiday decorations; the Harris School will be loaded with books, videos and phonograph records; the Safety Harbor Church will have vintage linens and antiques and the Pinellas Room will be loaded to the rafters with bargains. Of special interest will be the sugar cane processing display, put on by the Largo Historical Society. A truckload of raw sugar cane will be ground and pressed, then boiled down to delectable sugar cane syrup. Bottles of the elixir will be available for a small donation, and the kids can grab a piece of raw sugar cane to see if it really is sweet. The Morse Telegraph Club, Florida Chapter will be demonstrating how people communicated with Morse code, and one huge area of the train station will be filled with working model railroad displays. In the McMullen House, weavers, spinners, quilters and embroiderers will exhibit traditional skills. Living history activities for kids will abound and antique cars will be on display. This years Country Jubilee is sponsored by the Pinellas County Historical Society and Busch Gardens, and all proceeds will go to support the operation of Heritage Village. Free event parking and shuttle are located at 119th Street between Ulmerton and Walsingham roads; organizers are asking for a $2 per person donation for admission to the festival. Heritage Village is located at 11909 125th St. N. in Largo. The living history museum brings more than 150 years of local history to life. Tour 28 authentic buildings and structures, and experience historic Pinellas County through hands-on exploration. Paths wind through 21 acres and connect with the Florida Botanical Gardens and the Pinewood Cultural Park campus. Heritage Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. It is closed Mondays, Tuesdays and all Pinellas County holidays.

VIEWPOINTSBob DriverColumnist says he will stay put after the election. ... Page 13A. In the money By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Roger Fox admits it was a learning experience but a very successful effort. A recent car raffle conducted by the Seminole Kiwanis Club for the Seminole High School band boosters raised $27,381 after expenses, which will be used to help SHS band members make the trip to Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 1 for the Tournament of Roses Parade. The drawing was conducted Oct. 6 at Seminole High following the annual Seminole Sound Spectacular. Dale Miller, an exceptional student education teacher at SHS, was the winner of the grand prize a 2012 Mini Cooper Baker Street Limited Edition. Miller purchased a $25 raffle ticket only a week earlier during a band fundraiser at the Cali Shack on Seminole Boulevard. It turned out to be her lucky day. After paying about $7,500 in state sales and federal withholding taxes, Miller took delivery on Oct. 13. She was one of six winners in the drawing. Others were James Mock, who won a 2carat diamond from Alexis Diamond House; Anthony Cicotti, a Cape Cod vacation; Richard Slater, $100 dinner for two at the Sheraton Sand Key; Stacy Welton, $100 Salon West gift card; and Tim Stark, $50 Safety Harbor Spa gift card. Altogether, about 2,100 raffle tickets were sold raising just over $50,000 before the expense of paying for the car from Mini of Wesley Chapel. The raffle was a success, said Fox, who volunteers as corporate fundraiser for the band boosters. We owe the Kiwanis Club a big debt of gratitude. We couldnt have done it without them. Due to school rules, public school booster clubs cannot conduct raffles without approval of the Pinellas County School Board. Because that approval might have taken a few months to achieve, Fox decided to circumvent the school board by using the Kiwanis Club as the organizer of the raffle. It worked well. Another key, Fox said, was posting the raffle on www.old carraffle.com, which resulted in nearly 1,300 hits and the sale of additional raffle tickets. Me alone, I sold between 50 and 100 extra raffle tickets out of state (because of the website), Fox said. Altogether, there were a lot of sales (due to the website listing). I learned a lot, he added, and I would do it again. The effort to raise a large amount of money started late last spring when Fox met with band director Chip Wood. Fox told Wood something exciting was needed. Fox first approached Honda, the sponsor of the Rose Parade. But Honda couldnt help. Same thing at a couple of other auto dealerships. Then, a couple of weeks later, Fox mentioned his idea in passing to former Seminole High drum major Jack Rowland. Rowland, a former photographer and photo director for the Tampa Bay Times, had recently By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE A dedication for the first phase of a $22,500 solar farm at Seminole Vocational Education Center was held Oct. 19 at the school with a number of Pinellas school officials and city leaders on hand. Former SVEC director Peter Berry, who got the project rolling two years ago, spoke about the importance of solar energy and where the technology stands today. On June 8, SVEC installed a 22-panel solar power system that has the capacity to produce 5.2 kilowatts of electricity per hour. Because the system was new and testing had not yet been done, school officials had no idea how much savings it would produce. Last week, they announced some impressive numbers. Over a four-month period in 2012, compared to the same period a year earlier, SVEC saw a 19 percent savings in its electric consumption, which resulted in a four-month savings of $1,185.70. Funding for phase one of the system came through Perkins funding, or funding related to the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006, which provides about $1.3 billion in federal support for career and technical education programs. The move toward solar energy in the area is not new. The city of Seminole recently constructed two Public Works buildings that use solar panels, which annually produce 86,732 kilowatts of free electricity. Power not used by the city is sold back to the grid. In addition to its solar power efforts, SVEC also has Features Business . . . . . . . . .11-12A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . .14-15A County . . . . . . . . .2-3, 10A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Health . . . . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .7A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Seminole . . . . . . . . . . .6A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .14A The Beaches . . . . . . . . .16A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising INSIDESpecial Sections Welcome BackCOUNTYPinellas wants transfer of bridgePinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a recommendation from the county administrator Oct. 16 to transfer ownership of the Friendship Trail Bridge to Hillsborough County.

Romans 16:16 ...The churches of Christ Salute You 102512 NOAA says winter months could be cooler than normal Colder-than-normal temperatures are possible this December through February.Maps courtesy of NOAALooking at this map, Pinellas Countys forecast is split with inland areas getting a 33 percent chance of a wetter-than-normal winter and the remainder, including the barrier islands, having an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation. By SUZETTE PORTERColder-than-normal temperatures could be coming this December through February, so say climatology experts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Forecasters with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center revealed the annual Winter Outlook Oct. 18. They said cooler-than-average temperatures are possible in Hawaii and most of Florida, excluding the panhandle. The forecast map shows a 33 percent chance of cooler temperature for all of Pinellas County north to the Panhandle where equal chances of average temperatures are predicted. Southern Florida has a 40 percent chance of cooler temperatures. Warmer-than-average temperatures are possible in much of Texas, northward through the Central and Northern Plains and westward across the Southwest, the Northern Rockies, and eastern Washington, Oregon and California, as well as the northern twothirds of Alaska. This years forecast comes with a bit of a caveat, with climatologists pointing out that the outlook is less certain than previous years due to a wavering El Nino, expected to have developed by now. This is one of the most challenging outlooks weve produced in recent years because El Nio decided not to show up as expected, said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In fact, it stalled out last month, leaving neutral conditions in place in the tropical Pacific. When El Nio is present, warmer ocean water in the equatorial Pacific shifts the patterns of tropical rainfall that in turn influence the strength and position of the jet stream and storms over the Pacific Ocean and United States, according to a press release from NOAA. This climate pattern gives seasonal forecasters confidence in how the U.S. winter will unfold. An El Nio watch remains in effect because theres still a window for it to emerge.December 2010 was the coldest December since record keeping began at most sites around Tampa Bay. A good por tion of December 2010 was rather cool with temperatures averaging 7 to 11 degrees below normal for the month. According to records from the National Weather Service going back to 1914, the average temperature in St. Peters burg for December 2010 was 56.3 degrees down from 56.9 degrees in 1935, the previous record.The normal temper ature for St. Petersburg, according to the NWS, is 63.7 de grees.Precipitation outlookWetter-than-average conditions across the Gulf Coast states from the northern half of Florida to eastern Texas are possible for the coming winter, forecasters say. Looking at the map, Pinellas County is split with inland areas getting a 33 percent chance of a wetter-than-normal winter and the remainder, including the barrier islands, getting an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal precipitation. Chances of snow are extremely low. Measurable snowfall has never been recorded since recordkeeping began in St. Petersburg in 1948. Drier-than-average conditions are forecast for Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest and Northern California, including Idaho, western Montana, and portions of Wyoming, Utah and most of Nevada. Drier-than-average conditions are possible in the upper Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Missouri and eastern parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and western Illinois. The average annual total precipitation is about 49.58 inches in St. Petersburg. The heaviest one-day rainfall during the period of record was 12.20 inches at St. Petersburg on October 27, 1986. Winter begins Dec. 21.Tropical outlookThe 2012 Atlantic Hurricane season continues through Nov. 30. Sally Bishop, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management, reminds residents that hurricane season is certainly not over. Not by a long shot, Bishop said. In the late season, October and November, warm tropical Atlantic waters are pushed westward into the western Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico by the trade winds, Bishop said in the latest edition of the countys e-lert newsletter. These areas stay warmer than other areas of the tropics for longer. When the cold fronts arrive from Canada, they can push these storms into Floridas Gulf Coast. Late season hurricanes and tropical storms can bring storm surge, heavy rain, tornadoes and high winds just like the systems that form in August and September, Bishop said. The key is to not let your guard down, she said. The National Hurricane Center was issuing advisories Tropical Depression 18 Monday morning. The system was expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Sandy and track over Jamaica Wednesday morning before continuing on a path toward the Bahamas and then possibly Bermuda. A second system could form later this week, and early forecast tracking models show it moving east over open water, as many of tropical systems have done since September. Seventeen named storms had formed this year as of Oct. 21, nine hurricanes and one major hurricane, a category 3. NOAAs outlook, updated in August, calls for a total of 12 to 17 named storms to form in 2012, five to eight hurricanes and two to three major hurricanes. An average season sees 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. For more weather information, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

If accepted, it would end a relationship dating back to Oct. 15, 1997, when the Florida Department of Transportation transferred ownership of the Old Gandy Bridge to Pinellas and Hillsborough. The counties had lobbied to save the bridge for use as a trail linking Pinellas and Hillsborough, and FDOT eventually agreed to the plan. When FDOT transferred ownership of the bridge, the counties received $7 million the amount the state had planned to spend to demolish the old structure, which opened to traffic in 1956. The $7 million was used to refurbish the bridge with some money left over for operating and maintenance. The Friendship Trail Bridge opened to the public in 1999 with operations and maintenance governed by an interlocal agreement between the two counties. Thousands used the trail over the years and it quickly became a popular attraction for residents and guests. All was well until an engineering report issued in December 2008 said there was a potential that the bridge could collapse due to structural problems. Not long after, the trail bridge was closed permanently. In April 2010, engineers reassessed the condition of the bridge and gave a repair estimate of $48 million. The counties agreed the only course of action was to demolish the structure and started budgeting money to get it done. Hillsborough County put out a request for proposal for the demolition. American Bridge Company submitted a bid of $4.195 million to take down about 11,000 linear feet of the bridge, plus a bid of just over $1 million to remove the remaining 3,000 linear feet. Per the interlocal agreement, each county was expected to pay half the costs. Pinellas has already provided $2 million and agreed to put up an additional $515,000 to pay its share of the bid amount. Hillsborough County was expected to award the bid to American Bridge on April 4, 2012, but the matter was deferred to allow a citizen group working on a plan to save the old bridge a chance to present its case. A draft plan of the citizens group intent was received in May and, after review, Pinellas County staff expressed numerous concerns. Pinellas County recommended that plans continue to demolish the structure by awarding the bid to American Bridge. County Administrator Bob LaSala sent a letter to Hillsborough County Administrator June 27, stating concerns that if Hillsborough delayed awarding the bid, the demolition cost could go up, which could result in Hillsborough asking for more money from Pinellas. Given Pinellas Countys financial situation, I cannot recommend any further increase in contribution for demolition cost from Pinellas County in the future, LaSala wrote. He also expressed safety and liability concerns. Any additional delay to the demolition to the structure increases both counties exposure to the risk the deteriorated bridge presents, LaSala wrote. Merrill responded to LaSalas letter on June 28, writing that the Hillsborough Commission had voted June 27 not to award the bid for demolition. As you know there are proposals currently on the table from private groups advocating for the continued operation of the bridge for recreation and tourism, Merrill wrote. Additional due diligence on these proposals is required before a specific course of action can be recommended. The Hillsborough Commission has now given the advocacy groups more time to complete their due diligence. Merrill wrote that he had informed his commission that Pinellas was not willing to pay more than the $2 million plus the $515,000 for the demolition. LaSala now recommends that Pinellas transfer ownership of the bridge to Hillsborough County. The move would relieve Pinellas of all rights, obligations and liabilities regarding the bridge. The transfer would include two gateway towers, adjacent to the western end of the bridge on the condition that if the bridge is ever demolished and Hillsborough wants to dispose of the towers that Pinellas get a chance to move them to another location. Pinellas also agrees to move its restroom facility. If Hillsborough County agrees, the 1999 interlocal agreement would be terminated. LaSala told commissioners Oct. 16 that from what hes heard from Merrill, the Hillsborough commission is not likely to accept our offer. LaSala said if Hillsborough said no, discussions would continue. County Attorney Jim Bennett said Pinellas Countys obligation was to the demolition. LaSala added that the county was not obligated to be involved in any revamp, enhancement or rebuild. Commissioner Neil Brickfield asked if it was possible for Pinellas to take down its half of the bridge. We can explore that with the attorneys, engineers and environmentalists, LaSala said.

4A SEB Beacon, October 25, 2012 Photo by BOB McCLUREOfficials from Pinellas County Schools and the city of Seminole check out a new solar farm at Seminole Vocational Education Center. The 22-panel system has saved the school 19 percent in electric costs over the past four months.installed more efficient lighting throughout the school, which has also resulted in a noticeable difference in power usage. The solar system at SVEC consists of two strings of 11 SolarWorld Sunmodule panels using a Sunny Boy inverter, which converts the DC power into AC usage. Each panel produces 240 watts. The panels, which are aimed south, are mounted on eight 3-inch steel pipes that are embedded 70 to 80 inches in the ground and surrounded by 16 inches of concrete. Installation was done by SVEC carpentry, electrical and alternative energy students. The system is the only one of its size in use in Pinellas County Schools. The only other system in place is a smaller 1 kwh system at the St. Petersburg campus of Pinellas Technical Education Center. Solar systems, SVEC instructor Dan Bench said, typically pay for themselves in 10 to 12 years. Life expectancy on the inverter systems is between 25 and 30 years, and even longer on the panels. SVEC, from page 1Ajoined the sales team at Mini of Wesley Chapel.I mentioned the (the car raffle concept) to Jack and then, jokingly, a few weeks later I asked him hows that new car coming along? Fox said. Rowland took the passing comment to heart and approached his boss, Malcolm Cheek, the general manager of the Wesley Chapel dealership. Cheek gave his approval and Rowland went to work ordering the car in early June. As a longtime Mini Cooper enthusiast and the owner of three Minis, Rowland was the perfect person for the job. After assembly began in Oxfordshire, England, the sparkling black and gray vehicle was delivered to the dealership on July 26. The Baker Street edition, named for the address of fictional British detective Sherlock Holmes, features a 121-horsepower engine, a sixspeed automatic transmission, air conditioning, black 16-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, an onboard computer, leather steering wheel, a chrome exterior package, front fog lamps and more. The car also gets good fuel efficiency (28 miles per gallon in the city, 36 mpg highway). Minis are very popular for raffles, said Rowland. Theyre the kind of car that is a fun car to drive and its a car that is still relatively unique.

Heath outlined a comeback plan Oct. 18 that he said would dramatically reduce costs and put the bird rescue and rehabilitation facility on a path to financial stability. The challenges Heath and his associates face are formidable. A drop in income from donations in recent months has caused the Seabird Sanctuary to miss payroll payments for its paid employees. The Internal Revenue Service recently filed liens amounting to $187,000 against the sanctuary for nonpayment of payroll taxes. Compounding the problem is an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor for possible violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The nonprofit Seabird Sanctuary depends on donations for 100 percent of its operating income. Heath attributes most of the decrease in income to the state of the economy. The number of people donating to the charity has not declined, but the average amount donated is less, said Pam Dobyns, the sanctuarys PR director and spokeswoman. The decreased income has left the Seabird Sanctuary unable to meet all its financial obligations, and the paid employees have felt the brunt of the cutbacks. Dobyns said the sanctuarys priorities put the birds and their care first. The needs of the birds never stop, she said. Feeding and caring for the birds already there and responding to the daily inflow of sick and injured birds is an ongoing obligation. With personnel costs being the largest budget item, the Sanctuary was faced with the reality that it could not cover its payroll. Heath said the Sanctuary is working with the employees to get them caught up with their pay. They are also engaged with the IRS on a plan to pay off the lien at a reduced rate. Heath said he himself has not had a paycheck in months. Some of the employees are continuing to work for free, Dobyns said. Others have agreed to defer their paychecks. Some have left, and have expressed dissatisfaction with the sanctuary management. The organizations part-time volunteers are helping out to a greater degree than ever. Heath stressed that the Sanctuary has taken steps to reduce operating costs and maximize efficiencies. But some costs have dramatically increased. The price of bait fish, a big part of the voracious birds diet, has doubled, he said. While some have disputed that claim, local charter boat captain Travis Palladeno confirmed the price hike. Thats very true, said Palladeno. He said sardines in particular are in short supply and the cost is up. Effects from Tropical Storm Debby and from the BP oil spill in the Gulf have contributed to the problem, Palladeno said.A plan for recoveryThe comeback plan for the Sanctuary will play a critical role in assuring its future viability, Heath said. The key element is to move the facility from an employee-based to volunteer-based operation. It involves replacing paid employees with volunteers in non-critical positions. That wont be accomplished overnight, Heath said. But it is the goal, and the only way to significantly reduce the payroll costs,Photo by NANCY AYERSSuncoast Seabird Sanctuary Director Ralph Heath said the nonprofit bird rescue and rehabilitation facility has taken steps to reduce operating costs and maximize efficiencies.which make up the bulk of the sanctuarys expense, he said. We have a high payroll, and we have to deal with this, Heath said. Training of the volunteer base will be critical, said Dobyns. The volunteers will need to be motivated and know how to do their jobs, most of which involve caring for the avian inhabitants. They will have to know how to care for the birds, whose needs are often hands-on and can be complex, Dobyns said. The second part of the recovery plan involves selling assets and equipment not needed, and not related to the Sanctuarys mission. Finally, Heath said, We must continue to trim expenses wherever we can. The Seabird Sanctuary is also stepping up its fundraising efforts to increase donations. Upcoming is a Hallo-Wing party, and a joint promotion with the McDonalds in Madeira Beach where donors receive a card good for meal discounts. A Feed the Birds campaign is also being launched with a goal of raising $100,000, the cost of feeding the birds for one year. The comeback plan, when fully implemented, will bring significant, badly needed changes to the organization, Dobyns said, but we have to change the way we operate. There is one area of the Sanctuarys operation that will not change, Heath stressed. In dealing with our problems, all of the birds are, and will continue to be, well cared for and well fed, he said, inviting anyone to come out and see for themselves. Heath said he is confident the comeback plan for the Sanctuary will succeed. We have been here since 1972, and we plan to be here at least through 2072, he said.Help is neededHeath said anyone wanting to know more about the Sanctuarys needs can go to www.SeabirdSanc tuary.com.Madeira Seafood Festival to kick offMADEIRA BEACH The 31st annual Johns Pass Seafood Festival is set Friday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Oct. 28, at Johns Pass Village.

The 2013 Classic Beauties of Florida calendar is on sale for $10 at www.Cougarsofflorida .com as well as at calendar signings in the Tampa area, the schedule of which can be found online. The 2013 theme is Classic Beauties of Florida and a portion of proceeds will benefit Quantum Leap Farm of Odessa, a nonprofit, nationally-recognized equestrian program that serves injured and disabled civilian adults and children, military service members and their families. The Cougars of Florida have now issued two calendars that celebrate women over 40 who look great, feel fantastic and give back to their communities by participation in such endeavors as the charity publications, a news release said. The first edition celebrating that raised $11,000 for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium; a second edition not only raised funds for Big Cat Rescue, a large exotic cat sanctuary, but was also sent to soldiers overseas in support of their service. After Veterans Day the organization shipped more than 300 calendars free of charge. The 2013 edition will have a new look illustrating this years horsepower theme through visuals that utilize horse and sports car motifs. In selecting the recipient of this years proceeds, publisher and Tampa resident Kathleen Slaven said, Im not only an animal lover but a 25-year owner of horses. I have such a soft spot in my heart for these amazing creatures and their special connection to humans. I really feel that Quantum Leap Farm and their beautiful mission is deserving of assistance from our Florida ladies. The founder of Q.L.F., Edie Dopking, said, I was thrilled at Kathleens proposal as I have often thought of doing a calendar for our organization but lack of staff and time have prevented us from ever pursuing the idea. More information on the farm and the valuable service it provides can be found at www.QuantumLeapFarm.org.

Two subjects were arrested on 24 charges including two for driving under the influence, three for driving without a valid drivers license and seven for driving on a suspended or revoked license. Five were arrested for possession of marijuana, one for felony violation of probation, two for possession of a controlled substance, one for disorderly intoxication and two for possession of cocaine. In addition, 13 vehicles were impounded and 20 citations were issued. Average intrusion time was one minute and 39 seconds.Trio charged with second degree murderMADEIRA BEACH Three men suspected of killing a Madeira Beach man were charged with second degree murder Oct. 16. Michael Merrill, 57, a live-aboard commercial fisherman died Oct. 4 from injuries he received in a Sept. 12 beating aboard his vessel docked at a marina just south of the Tom Stuart Causeway on Madeira Beach. Deputies arrested three suspects, all transients, between Sept. 14 and 18. Each was charged with aggravated battery, according to a report by Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Timothy John Schuyler, 31, and Joshua Eugene Shroyer, 38, have remained in the Pinellas County Jail since their arrests in September. Kord Lynn Tucker, 38, released on a $10,000 surety bond Sept. 15 and re-arrested Oct. 16. Deputies say a previous disagreement might have triggered the incident that happened about 2 a.m. aboard Merrills vessel, the Lilly Anne, a 33-foot commercial fishing boat. The three suspects allegedly boarded the Lilly Anne and confronted the 57-year-old man late on the night of Sept. 11. He told them to leave, and reportedly threatened them with a knife. Reports show the three suspects left the boat at that time, but returned to the boat around 2 a.m. and began beating Merrill with hand tools and other objects. He was able to escape by diving into the water and hiding under the dock. A friend found Merrill a short time later, and called for assistance. Merrill was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of various internal and head injuries.Sketch released of assault suspectPALM HARBOR Pinellas County sheriffs detectives released a composite sketch of a man wanted in connection with an attack on a 49-year-old Palm Harbor woman. The attack happened about 8:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at 3420 Brian Road South in Palm Harbor. The suspect is a white male, about age 22, who was wearing long light gray cargo shorts and black sneakers. He was not wearing a shirt or socks. According to investigators, the victim had just finished jogging and was walking in the roadway, when an unknown suspect, grabbed her from behind, put his left arm around her neck in a chokehold and brought her to the ground. The suspect then touched her inappropriately. Detectives say the victim began to scream and the suspect got up and ran away ahead of her. She was only able to see him from behind. A neighbor drove past. The victim flagged him down and explained that she had just been assaulted and provided him with a general description. The neighbor then drove her home and began to circulate the area. He told deputies he saw the suspect running down the road and said he was able to get a look at his face. The Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit responded to track the area with no results. The neighbor has assisted detectives in developing a composite sketch of the suspect. Anyone with information that may assist detectives in identifying the suspect is asked to contact Detective Jeff Capra of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 582-6200. This is a sketch of a man wanted in connection with an attack on a 49-year-old Palm Harbor woman.

Now and then dolphin conservation is triumphant Photo by ANN WEAVERVidalia, a local bottlenose dolphin calf, is a conservation success story. Although he was freed nearly one year ago from the fishing line that had entangled his body for four months, his many scars are still easy to see. This picture shows the scar on the right corner of his mouth.Free-ranging marine mammals like bottlenose dolphins handle many objects at sea, from fish to seaweed toys, but are sometimes most regrettably forced to handle discarded fishing line. They dont handle it, of course. Once tangled in it, they can only endure. In the summer of 2011, a bottlenose dolphin calf less than six months old became entangled in fishing line. Dolphin-like, Vidalia swam continuously. But helplessly encased, each pump of his tail made the fishing line slice into him like a saw cutting wood, slashing the corners of his mouth, right pectoral (arm) fin, left eye and dorsal fin. A trailing wad of fishing line slapped his side unceasingly. Vidalia sometimes struggled against his noose by leaping around wildly. At other times, wearying of his struggle, he tried to clamber onto his mothers back, a most unusual thing for any but the youngest newborn dolphins to do. Vidalia endured his body noose of fishing line for four months until November 2011 when he was finally captured in a tiny St. Petersburg cove, cut free of fishing line and set free by a state-wide network of marine mammal biologists led by Dr. Randy Wells, and which included yours truly and Capt. John Heidemann, as told in Dolphin Watchs Baby dolphin rescue is happy ending story. Vidalias maritime rescue was particularly successful because Vidalia and his mother Valiant stayed around Johns Pass afterward, which meant that Capt. Heidemann and I have been able to observe them regularly and provide rare follow-up data. Happily, we can report that, thanks to the rescue, young Vidalia returned to the normal life of a young dolphin growing up at his mothers side. In so doing, hes provided valuable evidence of healing times at sea. Behaviorally, Vidalia zipped through the stages of healthy calf development more quickly than normal; after all, he had a lot of catching up to do. While entangled, Vidalia swam at his mothers side. In the months following the rescue, he became progressively bolder, initially swimming near his foraging mom and finally speeding around her at ever-increasing (developmentally normal) distances. One January day, Vidalia was absolutely animated. To his swift circles around mom, he added a brief bout of surfing the wake of a passing yacht; catching a fish but watching helplessly as a tern stole it; and goosing a cormorant into flight. His bright energy reminded me of another entangled calf, Juno, who behaved with similar wild abandon following his release from his snare of fishing line (Dolphin Watchs Cutting to the chase). By May, Vidalia showed more focus on fishing, which left his mother with an extra-large supply of milk for him (Dolphin Watchs Its Time We had a Little Chat). As spring turned to summer, Vidalia showed a different form of normal dolphin behavior by expanding his social life. He began to intermingle with a variety of dolphin schoolmates besides his mom, from younger calves to big bull members of the Bowery Boys super-alliance. Physically, Vidalias delicate dolphin skin is primarily designed to be in contact with seawater, so weeks of fishing line entanglement wounded him in many places. The endless chafing of the trailing wad of fishing line that slapped his side unceasingly produced a hefty patch of big white bumps. This patch showed little sign of healing for three months and took half a year to heal completely (November 2011 to May 2012). The fishing line left several marks, which may be permanent. The fishing line that slashed his tissues with every pump of his tail cut most deeply into the bottom front of his dorsal fin (the fin on the back that you see when a dolphin surfaces). It took six months for the swelling to go down and the lighter discolored pigment to match the rest of his body color. The asymmetrical severing action of the fishing line created a large gap in the tissue that, almost a year later, has yet to fill in. This is different than two other dolphins that sustained wounds at the bottom front of the dorsal fin; Juno and Strips gap filled in within weeks of injury. The furrow-like dents created by the sawing action of fishing line across the corners of the mouth and left eye are still clearly visible when Vidalia pokes his head out or leaps out of the water, which he now does just like any other normal dolphin.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

PETERSBURG The Progress Energy Foundation will invest $75,000 this year to fund environmental stewardship projects in Florida. Environmental stewardship grants improve the quality of life in communities served by Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Duke Energy. Our company has a proud history of supporting environmental stewardship in the communities where our customers and employees live and work, said Alex Glenn, incoming state president of Duke Energy Florida. We recognize that a strong environmental commitment helps to improve the quality of life in local communities. Progress Energy Foundation 2012 grants will support these organizations: Audubon of Florida this $50,000 Progress Energy grant supports Eagle Eyes on the Environment, an educational outreach program that focuses on the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, located in Maitland, the premier raptor rehabilitation facility east of the Mississippi. The center provides educational programming to more than 30,000 students, teachers and visitors annually. The Eagle Eyes program engages participants in learning and actions related to water, energy and habitat conservation. Progress Energys support of Audubon of Florida dates back to 2008. Clearwater Audubon Society this $25,000 Progress Energy grant supports the Eagle/Osprey Watch Program, which involves erecting and maintaining osprey platforms, collecting nest status data, retrofitting structures for avian safety and providing educational programs to the public regarding birds of prey, including topics such as climate change, energy and how to help in preventing wildlife outages by reporting nest building on power lines. Audubon volunteers analyzed osprey-nesting structures and identified the need to replace up to 20 existing structures, which are no longer safe, within the next two to three years. The society has been working on osprey conservation and management with Progress Energy for four years. More information is available at www.progress-energy.com.Cooters Crab Fest setCLEARWATER Cooters Restaurant & Bar will host its 19th annual Crab Festival Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 25-28, at 423 Poinsettia Ave. The four-day tent party will kick off Thursday, Oct. 25, 5 p.m. Cooters special Crab Fest menu will feature fresh Florida stone crab, king crab, snow crab and Dungeness crab all at wholesale prices. There also will be live music under the big tent as well as drink specials. Stone crab season in Florida runs from Oct. 15 through May 15, and harvesting is highly regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture. Stone crabs are captured live in traps and returned live to the sea immediately after the claws are removed. This enables the crabs to regenerate their missing claw. The stone crab can regenerate its claws three to four times. Florida law forbids the taking of whole stone crabs. Fishermen are allowed to take claws at least 2 3/4 inches long and are required to return stone crabs safely to the water. After the claws are harvested, they are fully cooked in fresh water, and then flash chilled in ice water. The cooking of fresh stone crab claws immediately after harvest prevents the delicate meat from sticking to the inside of the shell and the ice water plunge locks in the natural sweet flavor and keeps the freshly cooked claw meat rich and succulent. Cooters annual Crab Fest has become a tradition on Clearwater Beach for both locals and visitors. While stone crabs are generally the top draw to Crab Fest, we like to offer other crab varieties to our guests as well, so theyll have plenty of options, said Carol Mears, owner of Cooters, in a press release. Our Crab Feast Platter, which is loaded with an assortment of crab, has always been a popular choice. Our full menu also will be available throughout the weekend. For event information, call 462-2668.Holiday Inn hosts bake-offCLEARWATER Holiday Inn & Suites Clearwater Beach employees recently participated in the National Lee Denim Day.

Guests staying at the resort served as judges. The items are judged on creativity, appearance and taste. Last year, the housekeeping team won with a strawberry cheesecake. This year the winner is the engineering departments dirt pudding.

To understand my motivation you have to look no further than my four sons and four grandsons to know I want to do everything in my power to make Pinellas County, and Florida, a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I want my sons and grandsons to have the same access to quality education and well paying jobs that my generation was blessed to have. Moving to Pinellas County in 1985, I helped operate a small retail business in St. Pete Beach and worked for not-for-profit agencies before getting involved as a member of the South Pasadena Planning and Zoning Board. Since then I have been honored to be elected Commissioner, then as Mayor of South Pasadena. I have always believed that democracy only works if its citizens participate. Over the years I have put that philosophy to work creating an award winning, nationally recognized YMCA Youth Enhancement Skills Program designed to combat the high rate of middle school student suspensions and arrests. I have also volunteered my time at many of our local organizations such as the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center, the St. Petersburg Museum of History, and the Boys and Girls Club. I believe my background as a community leader, businesswoman, and Mayor give me a wide perspective on the needs of District 69, and many of our local leaders agree. I have received the support of seven of our beach community Mayors, including Mayor McFarlin of St. Pete Beach, Mayor Minning of Treasure Island, and Mayor Palladeno of Madeira Beach to name just a few. I look forward to earning your endorsement with your vote on November 6. If you have any questions or need any further information about me or my positions on the issues, please feel free to call or email me. I will answer your questions directly and truthfully.

Viewpoints 13A Beacon, October 25, 2012Flas shrinking newspaper corpsMEMORANDUM FROM: A newspaper dinosaur TO: Florida citizens The traditional newspaper is dying. Large cities New Orleans, Syracuse, Harrisburg no longer have papers delivered to homes seven days a week. Theres really nothing that can be done about it. Inkon-paper newspapers dont make enough money and its only going to get worse. Eventually, newspaper owners will figure out how to make a decent profit delivering information digitally or simply go out of business. Most people dont care. After all, you can get your news from your iPhone. But the tweets and blog posts are not giving you enough of the substantial news you really need. All these dying newspapers are surviving by cutting costs. That means getting rid of journalists. That means there are fewer of us asking probing questions, said Mary Ellen Klas, the Miami Heralds Tallahassee bureau chief. Klas has been covering Florida politics since 1988. She pointed out that more than 100 members of the media TV, radio, newspapers, websites covered the 2000 session of the Legislature. In 2010, only 40 covered it and I suspect that last year it was down to 30. Klas is an optimist by nature and she noted that journalists still wield considerable power in Tallahassee. Twitter and Facebook and iPads transmit information so quickly these days that a story or blog post published on a newspapers website can affect behavior in the capital with incredible speed, she said. Also, even though there are fewer journalists covering state government and far fewer covering local governments good journalists still produce some powerful public-service journalism. But there just are not enough boots on the ground. An American Society of News Editors survey released in April documented the thinning of the ranks. In 1990, there were 56,900 editors and reporters working at U.S. newspapers; this year there are only 40,600. And the numbers continue to fall. Also, many reporters today are young, inexperienced and low-paid. They lack the institutional knowledge and vital sources that the departing veteran reporters had. With fewer talented journalists on the beat, politicians, lobbyists and businessmen have learned they can wait it out when they find themselves in a mess, Klas said. When there were more reporters who had the resources of profitable newspapers behind them, sleazy public officials and their cronies had to endure relentless scrutiny. If youre a junkie for international and national news, your addictions will be taken care of. The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the TV networks will survive covering presidential campaigns, terrorism and meltdowns in the Middle East. But if you worry about the judgment, intelligence and ethics of your local school board, youre increasingly out of luck. Streaming the school board meetings live does not provide the same information that a smart and dogged newspaper reporter can. And there probably arent reporters at your school board meetings these days. Kudos to Mary Ellen Klas and the others in Floridas shrinking corps of savvy newspaper reporters. Theyre doing their best to hold public officials accountable. But there are not enough of them these days and there will be fewer in the years ahead. Youll miss them when theyre gone.A former managing editor of The Palm Beach Post and Cleveland Plain Dealer, Tom OHara is a national columnist for Florida Voices.Extend half-mill tax for schoolsBuried under the sea of state constitutional amendments on the Nov. 6 election ballot is an important referendum issue that many voters may gloss over. They shouldnt. Voter approval of the continuation of the half-mill property tax for school operating expenses is critical for the school district to cope with the challenges of providing a good education for students. Through the end of the 2010-2011 school year, the tax has supplemented teachers salaries by an average of $3,180 per year and supplied schools with more than $38 million in reading materials, wireless mobile computer labs, Smart Boards, up-to-date software, art supplies, band uniforms, musical instruments and many other items that enhance teaching and learning, school officials said. County voters first approved an additional one-half mill ad valorem (property) tax for school district operating expenses Nov. 2, 2004. The tax period ran from July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2009. Ninety-two percent of high school teachers using laptops said they had witnessed improvement in the quality and completion rate of student assignments, the results of a district poll showed. Ninety-one percent of students said the devices made learning easier and were making them more successful in their academic pursuits. As a result of the tax, every reading classroom and every content classroom (in Pinellas County) is now equipped with a classroom library filled with diverse and up-to-date materials. As far as accountability, schools have addressed such concerns about the tax, which generated about $28.3 million for this school year. An Independent Citizens Referendum Oversight Committee was created to monitor expenditures to make sure the money is spent as directed by the voters. The cost to the average single-family member is minimal. One-half mill equals $50 per year per $100,000 in taxable value. In 2012, the average single-family home in Pinellas County was valued at $137,911. With a $25,000 homestead exemption, the average homeowner paid $56.46 per year, or less than $5 a month or about 15 cents per day. For homes valued at $250,000, with a $25,000 homestead exemption, homeowners would pay $112.50 a year, which amounts to $9.38 a month or 31 cents per day, school officials said. Referendum funds also are supporting our most vulnerable children through dedicated intervention programs for remedial readers; greater access to FCAT preparation software; waived instrument rental fees for students who cant afford them; paid admission for field trips to museums and art galleries that some children would not otherwise be able to visit; and software and other materials to support struggling students, the website said. Support is widespread throughout the county for the tax, such as the County Council of PTAs, multiple chambers of commerce and the Pinellas Realtor Organization. Little, if any, criticism has been levied against the continuation of the tax. Thats not surprising, especially in the wake of such compelling arguments put forth by the school district in support on the measure. Tampa Bay Newspapers recommends that voters vote yes on the school tax issue. With Election Day less than two weeks from now, many Americans are planning to abandon the USA forever, in case their favored candidate loses the presidential race. Today if you throw twenty rocks into a crowd, ten of them will strike people who believe another four years of Barack Obama will bankrupt America, turn it into a socialist hell, and hand the country over to illegal immigrants. The other ten stones will land on voters who would rather die than live in an America ruled by a fascist dictator, Mitt Romney, who would send poor people (anyone worth less than $25 million) into poverty camps to starve, die of untreated health problems and be tortured for having received any kind of government aid. Im exaggerating, of course, so please dont email me that Ive overstated things. Im only making fun of anyone who believes the sky will fall if the wrong guy wins the White House on Nov. 6. It wont. Life will go on, and will often be a pain in the neck, the way it always has been. However, if you are serious about finding a new life in a foreign country, youd better start planning right away, before the Kenyans or the Mormons take full control of our nation next Jan. 20, after which all will be lost. You should first go on the Web and research the best countries to live in. Ive tried that, but its not much help. Youll find several lists of the ten best countries, and they all vary. The lists are followed by the widely varying comments of people who have lived overseas; most of these folks sound like mental patients, as you will quickly learn when you read their opinions. So where does that leave you? Confused, to say the least. The picture gets further muddled when you realize that a 30-year-old with lots of money may not want to emigrate to the same place as a 50-year-old with four teenagers and $300 to his name. Other factors to be considered include these: Do you smoke a lot of marijuana? (Hollands the place for that.) What foreign languages do you speak? Do you require lots of fresh vegetables and salads? If so, stay away from Latvia and Lithuania, whose favorite food is pork sausage, or so Ive read. Do you enjoy the change of seasons? If thats the case, scratch Siberia off your list; Siberia is always cold. If by chance you love to be surrounded by falling-down drunks, put Russia at the top of your rankings. Surveys suggest that Russians drink more vodka than water. Many infants are born with a 0.12 blood alcohol level. If street riots bother you youd better avoid Spain, Greece and a few other members of the European Union that are now experiencing hard times. If I had to choose another country to live in, Id lean toward New Zealand. I dont know why. I look at a world map and New Zealand seems to be tucked snugly down there, a thousand miles from anywhere, safe from all the troublesome goings-on the world is heir to. The people speak English, although the native Maoris tend to lapse into Maori after a few beers. Are you a dog-lover? Then the United Kingdom may be a good home. The English cant stand each other, so they worship dogs. Thats a quote I stole from somewhere. I have visited England a few times, and I like the way the Brits are reserved. They are the opposite of Facebook, where everyone wants to be your friend and tell you about their bowel movements. In England, firemen wont rescue someone from a burning building until proper introductions are made. Many years ago I lived for several months in Italy, and enjoyed it. I was drinking then, and exulted in sitting for hours in a trattoria scarfing pasta and swilling wine. The more I drank the better I spoke Italian, especially if I was with people from Naples or Sicily, where the natives forget to enunciate and merely gargle vowels at you like all those mobsters in The Sopranos. I dont think Id like Italy today. Im not Catholic, but I always felt reassured by the eternal solidity of the Papacy. But today we read that the Popes secretary has been telling tales out of school, and pretty soon we may learn that the Sistine Chapel ceiling was painted not by Michelangelo but by some fancy faker from Florence. To anyone planning to seek a new country after Election Day, I wish you good luck and happiness. I intend to stay here in the USA and root for all members of the next Congress, plus whoever ends up in the White House. Those poor devils will need all the support we can give them.

Send him an email at tralee71@comcast.net.If you move away from the USAI recently flew a non-stop (round trip) flight from Tampa, Florida to Las Vegas and I was amazed with the incompetence that I experienced on the airline. When the plane left Tampa and landed in Las Vegas, (around 4 1/2 hours later) the pilot was unable to bring his plane up to his assigned gate, due to another plane sitting at his assigned gate, because the ground crews were all inside of the airport terminal, awaiting the passing of some minor lightning flashes, that was seen within 8 miles of the airport that day. We were told that by our pilot. All of the passengers (including me) had to sit in our seats (for about an hour and a half) before any of those ground crews decided to come out of the terminals again, and continue on with all of their ground crew jobs that day, and before any of us were ever allowed to exit that Southwest jet that day. Eight days later, on Aug. 22, my out-bound flight was scheduled to leave Las Vegas for Tampa at 10 a.m. in the morning, but the airlines wouldnt let any of us board that out-bound flight of theirs that morning, due to all of their ground crews being, once again, inside of the terminals, due to it raining outside the terminal that morning, and due to some lightning flashes that was seen (again) by them within 5 to 8 miles of the airport that morning. As we were waiting the boarding of that plane that morning, (around 3 hours) I looked outside of those terminal windows, and I was amazed at what I was seeing outside. I saw some little luggage trailers outside that were stacked with luggage, all sitting out in the rain. Some of the luggage that was sitting on those rained on trailers outside were covered up with tarps, and some were not covered up with tarps. Needless to say, all of the passengers on that flight were very irritated that morning when they had seen what I had seen out of those windows, and when they had to sit in that Las Vegas airport for hours and hours that morning, awaiting their flight back to Tampa. No one likes to see his luggage outside getting rained on, and no one likes to wait for hours and hours in a terminal to board a plane, simply because some ground crews are afraid of a little bit of rain, or afraid of a few lightning flashes in the sky, that have been noticed (on their computers) 5-8 miles away from an airport. Im a Florida plumbing contractor, and I have been working out in the rain, and out in the lightning, and out in the wind, and out in the ice, and out in the snow, and out in the heat, and out in the mud, etc. etc., ever since that I have been working in the plumbing trade, (since 1963) and I have never been afraid to work in any of that stuff in all of my many years of working in the plumbing trade, so whats wrong with all of those airline ground crews of today? Are they (and all of their bosses) a bunch of wimps and cowards today, or what? Plumbers are known as problem solvers in this world, so (below) is my solution for the above weather problems that I encountered with the airlines recently. Every airport in America needs to put a simple carport covering over all of their gates (and planes) at all of their terminals. That way, all of the planes in America would be out of the rain, and out of the lightning, and out of all of the storms, etc., when they come into all of those gate ports or those plane ports to do all of their re-fueling and all of their loading and unloading of both passengers and luggage, etc., would they not? If this country can put coverings over most all of their football fields, etc., then why dont the people of this country get together and demand that coverings be placed over all of the airplanes that they have to board in this country? People hate sitting in jets for hours and hours on those airport tarmacs, and they hate sitting for hours and hours in some airport terminal, just because some ground crews are afraid to come out of those terminals and continue on with doing their jobs. So just think of how many millions of happy fliers there would be (again) here in America, if all of the airlines of America would all get together with one another, and start demanding (from all of those airport owners) some simple coverings over all of Americas airplanes (and gates) that are in this country, and around this world? When I got back to Tampa, and went to baggage claim, I found that my suitcase was wet on its bottom side. Mine must have been one of those that I had seen out in the rain, there at Las Vegas.

A young girls popularity is in jeopardy when she is forced to track down her kid brother instead of going to the party of the year. Yet her kid brother shows her what popularity is all about and her rush to find her brother with her nerd neighbor shows her that popularity might not be exactly what she really wants. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The SessionsGenre: Drama Cast: John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy and Moon Bloodgood Director: Ben Lewin Rated: R Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of Californiabased journalist and poet Mark OBrien, The Sessions tells the story of a man who lived most of his life in an iron lung who is determined at age 38 to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapist and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his dream a reality.The Loneliest PlanetGenre: Drama Cast: Hani Furstenberg, Gael Garca Bernal and Bidzina Gujabidze Director: Julia Loktev Not rated Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they are backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture thats over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it cant be undone. Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves. All the while, they are not alone. They are always with the guide, who witnesses their every move. The film plays off the relationship between young travelers and the places they travel to, between guide and guided. But at heart, it is a love story a tale about betrayal, both accidental and deliberate, about masculinity, failure and the ambiguities of forgiveness.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters, trailers and an opportunity to purchase tickets online, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

PETERSBURG The Stone Hill Science Fiction Association will host Necronomicon 2012 Floridas science fiction, fantasy and horror convention Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26-28, at the Hilton Bayfront, 333 First St. NE. This years guest of honor will be speculative fiction writer Linnea Sinclair. Sinclairs novel Gabriels Ghost (written under the pseudonym Megan Sybil Baker) earned her the 2006 RITA Award in the Best Paranormal Romance category from the Romance Writers of America. The convention will feature informative panels and a full schedule of events and programs including the annual Cthulhu Memorial Eye Scream Social, the Ygor Party Ghourmet Bheer Tasting, ongoing video and anime rooms, a masquerade, costume contest, trivia contests and an art show. Attendees also will enjoy plenty of workshops and demonstrations as well as filking. For those unfamiliar with this convention tradition, filk songs, as explained on Stone Hills Necronomicon website, are parodies of real songs, and originals, too, all with a fanish bent. Filk songs may be about a favorite book, film, television show, game, comic book or other science fiction or fantasy content. Filkers can participate in song sessions throughout the weekend. For space buffs, Jeff Mitchell will host a presentation on settling Mars.Guest of honorAccording to her bio, Linnea Sinclair has managed to use all her college degrees (journalism and criminology) but hasnt soothed the yearning in her soul to travel the galaxy. Thats why she writes in the field of science fiction and fantasy romance. A former news reporter and retired private detective, Sinclairs recent releases from Bantam include the third book and fourth books in the Dock Five series, Hopes Folly (2009) and Rebels and Lovers (2010). Her essay column for Futures magazine was a Pushcart Literary nominee in 1998, and in 2002-03 she was a John W. Campbell award nominee forNecronomicon 2012Science fiction, fantasy, horror fans converge on St. Petersburg for annual conventionbest new science fiction author. Sinclair resides in Naples in the winter months and in Columbus, Ohio during the summer. In addition to writing, Sinclair teaches seminars in both the craft of writing for all levels of writers and private investigation techniques for mystery authors via online writing sites and at writing conventions nationwide. In the authors press kit, Sinclair discusses what led her to a career as a writer. Ive been writing for so long I honestly cant remember a time when I wasnt writing, Sinclair said. Im an only child and making up stories in my head was a favorite pastime. I began putting them on paper in junior high school. In my 20s I was active in [Star Trek] fan-fic. Sinclair didnt actually start writing full time until she had completed successful careers as a news reporter and a private investigator. For those who havent personally delved into the subgenre of science fiction romance, Sinclair offers her own definition. Science fiction romance is, at its core, a science fiction/speculative fiction novel that has equally at its core and in its theme the romantic question between the main characters, she explained. Its written so that if either core element science/speculative fiction or romance were removed, the story would collapse. Visit www.stonehill.org/necro.htm. Linnea Sinclair

Draft or Single Liquor Wells Celebrate The Fall SeasonWith These Local BusinessesCelebrate The Fall Season Here and there Music camp slated at Boyd HillST. PETERSBURG The 23rd annual Sunshine State Acoustic Music Camp is planned Nov. 1618 at Boyd Hill Environmental Studies Area, 2900 31st St. S. A wide variety of classes are offered, from guitar playing, both for beginners and in various more advanced styles, to mandolin, harp, lap dulcimer, banjo, fiddle, bass, concertina, harmonica, Autoharp, Irish flute, ukulele, percussion, singing, harmonizing, songwriting, performance techniques and music theory. Carroll Smith, who did not begin playing music until he was in his 50s and is now an award-winning musician, hosts a special class called Never Too Late for people wanting to begin making music later in life. Unlike many camps the instructors do not just teach classes. They are available throughout the camp to offer students oneon-one help. The camp is open to the public. Preregistration is strongly advised, although walk-ins are welcome. The Sunshine State camp is designed for all ages. The youngest registered student in the camps history has been of elementary school age and the oldest, Elsa Jennings, is 98 years old. Beginners are welcome and a special tutoring area is available where they can get one-on-one help. In addition to classes, there are student shows at lunchtime each day and on Saturday evening a major concert featuring performances by the camp instructors and special guests. The concert is free to camp registrants and $15 for the general public. Complete detailed information, schedule, pictures, directions, are available on the camp website, at www.cgmusicman.com /camp/. For further information, call camp director Charley Groth at 585-5678 before 10 p.m.Country Jubilee set at Heritage VillageLARGO The 34th Country Jubilee: A Centennial Celebration comes to Pinellas Countys Heritage Village on Saturday, Oct. 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For the first time, James Anthony Schnurs long-awaited book, Historic Pinellas County A Centennial History will be available for sale and the author will hold a book signing. More than 120 food and craft vendors will be lining the walkways in and around Heritage Village, displaying stained-glass items, handcrafted jewelry, wooden items, seasonal crafts, quilts, products made of natural stone, plus soaps, jams, nuts and pickles. Clothes for the American Girl dolls are available as well. The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office will be registering voters at this years Country Jubilee. Florida folk, bluegrass and country music will be performed live throughout the day. The entertainment will include 13-yearold Carmen Brandy who made her first trip to Nashville in 2011. The ever-popular flea market is bigger and better this year, organizers say. The Lowe House will contain holiday decorations; the Harris School will be loaded with books, videos and phonograph records; the Safety Harbor Church will have vintage linens and antiques and the Pinellas Room will be loaded to the rafters with bargains. Of special interest will be the sugar cane processing display, put on by the Largo Historical Society. A truckload of raw sugar cane will be ground and pressed, then boiled down to delectable sugar cane syrup. Bottles of the elixir will be available for a small donation, and the kids can grab a piece of raw sugar cane to see if it really is sweet. The Morse Telegraph Club, Florida Chapter will be demonstrating how people communicated with Morse code, and one huge area of the train station will be filled with working model railroad displays. In the McMullen House, weavers, spinners, quilters and embroiderers will exhibit traditional skills. Living history activities for kids will abound and antique cars will be on display. This years Country Jubilee is sponsored by the Pinellas County Historical Society and Busch Gardens, and all proceeds will go to support the operation of Heritage Village. Free event parking and shuttle are located at 119th Street between Ulmerton and Walsingham roads; organizers are asking for a $2 per person donation for admission to the festival. Heritage Village is located at 11909 125th St. N. in Largo. The living history museum brings more than 150 years of local history to life. Tour 28 authentic buildings and structures, and experience historic Pinellas County through hands-on exploration. Paths wind through 21 acres and connect with the Florida Botanical Gardens and the Pinewood Cultural Park campus. Heritage Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. It is closed Mondays, Tuesdays and all Pinellas County holidays.
