Fire station project moves ahead


Council OKs construction manager at risk for Starkey Road site


By BOB McCLURE
SEMINOLE Long-awaited renovations to the city's
37-year-old fire station on Starkey Road took another
step forward Jan. 8 when the City Council approved a
construction manager at risk agreement and a maxi-
mum price for the project.
Councilors voted unanimously to approve Biltmore
Construction of Clearwater for the task of upgrading
Fire Station 30 at 8971 Starkey Road.
As construction manager at risk, Biltmore will act as
the project manager for the improvements, which were


designed by Mason Blau and Associates of Clearwater.
In a separate vote, the City Council approved a guar-
anteed maximum price of $954,217 for the improve-
ments.
'This has actually been a multi-year process," said
City Manager Frank Edmunds. "We had originally de-
signed changes back in 2010. We went through a com-
petitive process to select a project manager at risk and
at that time we selected Biltmore Construction. Howev-
er, the expense of those renovations exceeded our
budget allowance. So therefore we went through a re-
design of the structure and Biltmore will continue to be


our construction manager at risk."
Once the upgrades are complete, the fire station will
meet current county code, which calls for structures to
withstand 140 mph winds.
In other action, councilors:
Approved on first reading an amendment to the
Firefighters Municipal Pension Trust Fund Ordinance,
limiting the amount of overtime to 300 hours per year
and defining the firefighters' annual contribution per-
centage to the pension fund as outlined in the recently

things," said Recreation Direc-
tor Becky Gunter. "You always
want to get better so people
don't say it's the same old carni-
val again."
Runners are encouraged to
dress up in tropical attire, the
crazier the better.
Prizes will be handed out for
the best costume and the best
team costume.
Leading the way will be a
number of area sports mascots,
including the Tampa Bay Rays'
Raymond, Clearwater Thresh-
ers' Phinley, the Chick-fil-A cow
and others.
Registration for the event will
take place at the Recreation
Center. The entry fee for the
short sprint is $5. Call 391-
8345 for further details.
This year's 45th annual Pow
Wow event will kick off the

nole Guild.

Firefighters from Seminole Fire Rescue check out the city's new Pierce Impel fire engine.


Seminole Fire Rescue gets new fire engine


SEMINOLE For the next few weeks, city of Seminole fire-
fighters are learning about a new piece of equipment.
Engine 29, a 2013 Pierce Impel is due to be placed into
service the first of February. The $377,000 truck is a new gen-
eration of green fire apparatus that leaves a very small carbon
footprint. Disappearing are the days of trucks belching dark
smoke. The new truck actually cleans its own exhaust, emit-
ting only water and nitrogen into the atmosphere.
Engine 29 will be housed at Fire Station 29, 11195 70th
Ave., and will respond as an advanced life support unit with
fire-medics and EMTs on board.


Equipped with a compliment of ALS and fire equipment, the
new engine can pump 1,250 gallons of water per minute from
a 500-gallon water tank and a 40-gallon foam tank. Built to
new National Fire Protection Association standards, the new
engine features LED lighting, a computer terminal for receiv-
ing incident information and state-of-the-art technology that
will permit firefighters to respond efficiently to scene situa-
tions.
Residents can get a first-hand look at Engine 29 Sunday,
Feb. 10 when it will be featured at the annual city of Seminole
Fire Rescue open house from noon to 3 p.m. at Station 29.

Pair of suspects arrested in string of bank robberies


By SUZETTE PORTER and JULIANA A. TORRES

SEMINOLE The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office
announced Jan. 11 that two suspects wanted in
connection with a string of recent bank robberies
are now in custody at the Pinellas County Jail.
Deputies apprehended Nathan Blisard, 29, and
his girlfriend Meaghan Zimmer, 23, both of Largo
about 1 p.m. on Jan. 11.
Blisard is accused of robbing the Wells Fargo
Bank, 13099 Park Blvd. in Seminole on Jan. 9 and
the Wells Fargo Bank at 801 West Bay Drive in
Largo on Jan. 3. Largo police say he also tried to
rob the Wells Fargo Bank at 2515 West Bay Drive
prior to the Seminole robbery on Jan. 9.
Forensics specialists found Blisard's fingerprint
while processing the scene at the Wells Fargo in


Seminole. Sheriffs detectives
then found out that Blisard and
Zimmer were in the Seminole
area.
Blisard was reportedly driv-
ing the car used in the rob-
beries when deputies with the
Strategic Enforcement Section
stopped him near the intersec-
Nathan Blisard tion of Starkey Road and 76th
Avenue North in Seminole.
Deputies found Zimmer at a nearby residence. De-
tectives say she admitted to driving the getaway car
during one of the robberies.
Largo police circulated surveillance photos and
posted photos on the department's Facebook page
from the Jan. 3 robbery. The photos showed the


suspect passing a teller a note
that demanded cash and an-
other of him pocketing the
money in an inside pocket of
his black suit jacket. The trans-
action took less than a minute,
according to the time stamp on
surveillance video. Largo detec-
tives also posted photos from
Meaghan the Jan. 9 robbery attempt.
Zimmer The Sheriffs Office posted
photos of Blisard taken during
the Seminole robbery on the department's website.
According to the sheriffs report, Blisard handed
the teller a note demanding the cash with instruc-
tions not to set off any alarms. He implied he had a
gun. However, no weapon was seen.


Blisard was charged with one count of strong-
arm robbery and one count of robbery. Bond was
set at $170,000. Zimmer was charged with one
count of principal to strong-arm robbery, one
count of robbery and possession of methadone, a
violation of her probation. Her bond was $10,000
for each robbery. No bond was set for the posses-
sion charge.
According to jail records, Zimmer was charged
with possession of methadone on Jan. 27, 2011
and again on Oct. 18.
Blisard has seven prior arrests, dating back to
April 10, 2007, when he was charged with posses-
sion of cocaine, battery, driving on a suspended or
revoked license, strong-arm robbery and extortion.
Arrests that are more recent stem from driving
with a suspended or revoked license.


Police beat


Deputies arrest
Seminole rape suspect
SEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies
arrested a Largo man Jan. 12 in connection with a
rape of a 17-year-old female behind the Target store
in Seminole the night of Jan. 11.
Raheem Willis Bell, 21, was charged with one
count of sexual battery and one count of violation of
parole on a prior child abuse charge. According to
jail reports, Bell was arrested on March 6, 2012,
and charged with lewd or lascivious battery.
According to detectives assigned to the Crimes
Against Children Unit, Bell was walking with the
victim behind Target, 4450 Park St. N., about 8:30
p.m. Friday. While behind the store, Bell told the
victim to remove her pants. She refused, and Bell
then forcibly removed her pants and performed sex-
ual intercourse on her against her will.
After raping the victim, Bell left her alone and
partially nude behind the store. The victim was able
to make contact with known adults, who in turn
called the Sheriffs Office.


Members of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office
Violent Crimes Task Force, which includes Sheriffs
deputies and St. Petersburg Police officers, later lo-
cated Bell and took him into custody. He was
booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 7:37 a.m.
Jan. 12. No bond was set.
Investigators believe that pedestrian or vehicle
traffic behind the Target last night may have seen
the victim and suspect together and are asking any-
one with information to contact the Pinellas County
Crimes Against Children Unit at 582-6200.

Police investigate
counterfeit bills
TREASURE ISLAND Police are searching for a
Hispanic man in his 20s who passed a counterfeit
$100 bill during a purchase Jan. 5 at the Surf Style
store, 10701 Gulf Blvd.
According to a police report, the man purchased
two beach mats and paid with a bad $100 bill. The
store manager suspected the bill might be bad but


when she tested it with a special pen, it passed as
legal.
The same suspect stopped at two other Surf Style
stores in the county and passed additional counter-
feit $100 bills, police said.
The suspect was listed as about 5 feet, 10 inches
with a stocky build, wearing a black v-neck shirt,
light-colored cargo shorts and flip-flops.

Big screen TV
reported stolen
TREASURE ISLAND Police are investigating the
theft of a large-screen television from a home in the
Breeze Way Apartments, 11875 Third St. E.
According to a police report, the theft was report-
ed on Jan. 1 at 12:57 p.m. The item stolen was a
64-inch Hitachi projection television.

Deputies arrest
Pennsylvania fugitives
CLEARWATER- Pinellas County sheriffs


deputies assigned to the U.S. Marshals Task Force,
initially pursuing a tip on an America's Most Want-
ed case, conducted a separate and unrelated inves-
tigation that led to the Jan. 9 arrest of two fugitives
from Pennsylvania.
The investigation led deputies to the Flamingo
Motel, 1806 N. Fort Harrison Ave., where they made
contact with a subject, later identified as Victor
Santarelli, 46. Santarelli told deputies he had no
identification and provided deputies with multiple
dates of birth.
Investigators asked Santarelli to provide finger-
prints and have a photograph taken to be run
through the Sheriffs Automated Fingerprint Identifi-
cation System and Facial Recognition System. The
subject was cooperative and agreed to do so. No
matches were found in Florida.
Detectives arrested the suspect and his wife
Tamara Santarelli, 44. The two were transported to
the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.
According to detectives, the two were found guilty of
conspiracy to defraud the estate of a deceased aunt.

Chapel on the Hill to celebrate 50th anniversary


SEMINOLE: Every town has its land-
marks -those spots, large and small,
that just seem to have always been
there. They are part of the fabric of
that community. These landmarks re-
mind residents that this town is their
home. Seminole is that way. The Lone
Pilgrim Cemetery with the "broccoli
tree;" the purple cow statue in the side
driveway of the house on 131st Street;
the log cabin on 113th Street, just to
name a few. Included in this list is the
church on Park Blvd. with the ski slope
roof, Chapel on the Hill United Church
of Christ (COTH). On February 9th,
2013, Chapel on the Hill will celebrate
its 50th anniversary.
Chapel on the Hill has been around al-
most as long as the town of Seminole
itself. It was built the same year that the
Seminole Chamber of Commerce
began. The following year, the first sen-
ior class graduated at Seminole High
School. A year later, the Seminole Mall
and the post office were built.
For fifty years, Chapel on the Hill has
been an integral part of the communi-
ties of Seminole, Largo and the beaches.
This church lives by the creed, "No mat-
ter who you are or where you are on


Come join our family." And members
don't just say it, they live it welcoming


worship Rev. Gabe Oborholzer
believing in the notion that we are all
on our own faith journey. As stated in
their mission statement, "We find our
window to God in the face of Jesus,
while recognizing the quest and insight
of other faiths." They hold a bible study
every Thursday evening that is open to
the community.
Chapel on the Hill knows how to
have fun, too. COTH offers bingo every
Wednesday afternoon. The congrega-
tion has entered floats in Seminole's


life's journey, you are welcome here. parades, created spooky booths at the


Recreation Center's annual Halloween
Field of Screams, and held monthly dine
outs to local restaurants. Members
have organized kayaking and lazy river
tubing outings. They have held their
own haunted houses, carnivals, Octo-
berfests, and spaghetti dinners.
The church has always been an active
citizen in the community, opening the
doors to offer shelter during hurri-
canes; supporting Religious Commu-
nity Services (RCS) ministries with an
annual toy drive; sending hundreds of
care packages to our troops; providing
Pinellas Hope with blankets, clothes
and other necessities; making and
delivering brown-bag lunches to the
homeless; the list goes on-and-on.
Chapel on the Hill will be celebrating
its 50th Anniversary with a very special
dinner to be held on Saturday, February
9th at 5:00 p.m. The community is also
welcome to attend the dinner ($35.00
per plate). Please call the church office
at (727) 391-2919 for a reservation.
Chapel on the Hill also invites the
community to attend its regular church
service the next morning at 10:00 a.m.,
to join them for worship and celebra-
tion of fifty years in the Seminole
community.

A pair of sandhill cranes forage for food last week on the grounds of the Seminole Community Library.
A population of sandhill cranes lives year-round in Florida but their number increases in the winter due
to the migration of their northern counterparts. While the sandhill crane is not considered threatened,
three southern subspecies, which includes the Florida sandhill crane, are considered quite rare and are
protected. Habitat destruction is their biggest threat.



SPC to host forum on student testing

Family learns lessons in



quest for a missing iPod


I sure am glad there are still honest people out
there.
Over the Christmas break, my 8-year-old daugh-
ter somehow lost her iPod Touch and was heart-
broken. She bought it over the summer with her
own money and had been pretty careful with it.
That was until one busy day.


My two girls
and I were in
and out of the
car a lot that
day.
We dropped
one of their
friends home
after she spent


Mom 2 Mom

Tubbs


the night, we dropped my youngest daughter off at
a birthday party, we went out to a restaurant for
lunch, and then we went to the mall.
Somewhere along the way, my daughter lost her
iPod. But we didn't even realize she lost it until
later that night when she couldn't find it.
She just broke down and sobbed. We went over
the whole day and tried to figure out where it could
have been.
Did she lose it? Was it stolen out of the car? Did
she even bring it with her or was it somewhere at
home? All these questions were going through my
mind.
My daughter couldn't remember exactly what
happened, but she did know she had it with her in
the car.
So, I started calling the places we had been,
leaving my number just in case it was left at a
store.
That night, my husband and I had a talk with
our daughter to tell her she needed to be more re-
sponsible with her things. We told her we didn't
want her to worry anymore, because there wasn't
anything we could do. It was gone.
My daughter was OK and stopped crying. She
was still sad, but understood there wasn't anything
we could do.
As a mom, I still wanted to figure out at least
what happened. I knew how much that iPod meant
to her, because she had saved for a long time to get


it. I kept thinking about what could have hap-
pened. Then it hit me late that night: when she
was getting out of the car, while dropping off my
other daughter at the birthday, her friend ran up
to her to give her a hug. She must have dropped it
in the lawn.
The next morning, I called my friend who hosted
the birthday. She said a man and his little boy
found an iPod while walking their dog. They had
asked my friend's husband if it belonged to his
kids and he told them it didn't. He didn't realize
my daughter dropped her iPod.
I asked my friend if she knew the person who
found the iPod. She said she thought she knew
where he lived. Since they didn't live too far from
us, my husband and I drove to the house to see if
they still had the iPod.
My mind was racing thinking that it had been
less than 24 hours, but still they could have sold it
or pawned it. It's worth about $200.
We got to the house and, while he wasn't home,
a lady at the house said she knew he had the iPod
and told us that when he got home they would call
so we could pick it up.
My mind was relieved. We were going to get the
iPod back.
We explained to our daughter that these people
were nice and honest, because they could have
just kept her iPod for themselves. We told her she
should give the boy who found it a reward. She de-
cided to reward him with her own money.
I also reminded her of a time not too long ago -
before she bought her iPod when we realized that
someone had left their iPod at our table in the mall
food court. We were honest and didn't take it, turn-
ing it into security so the person who lost it could
get it back. I told her when you do the right thing,
the favor comes back to you.
We were very fortunate that the boy and his dad
are good people. We thanked them again for doing
the right thing! You made my daughter so happy
and rekindled my faith in people.

SEMINOLE With the Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test at the center of an expected political
storm this year, St. Petersburg College will open the
debate with a forum designed to help educators,
students and the general public understand Flori-
da's K-12 academic future.
Titled "Farewell, FCAT Hello, Common Core:
Florida's New Testing Strategy," the forum will be
Wednesday, Jan. 23, 6-8 p.m., at the Seminole
campus Conference Center, 9200 113th St. N. It is
the third program in SPC's 2012-13 Village Square
Series under its Institute for Strategic Policy Solu-
tions. Media co-sponsors are WUSF Public Media,
WEDU, and the Tampa Bay Times.
For 14 years, Florida's children have faced an ac-
ademic challenge that caused stress for many and
forced some to repeat a grade or be denied a high
school diploma. FCAT also impacted the perform-
ance evaluations of their teachers and the career
plans of their principals.
The assessment test was created in the early
1990s out of concern for low achievement rates and
a demand for accountability. Beginning in 1998, it
evolved from a simple measure of student success
to a blunt pass-fail instrument for students and a
standard by which teachers are evaluated and
schools labeled as failures.
Many believe the FCAT has become a testing
monster that dumbs down the learning process and
turns teachers into robots. That animosity toward
FCAT boiled over last May, when state educators
were forced to lower the pass-fail standard because
73 percent of fourth-graders would have failed the
reading test. That embarrassing gaffe has sparked a
debate on the entire issue of student testing and

teacher accountability. It has drawn the attention of
Gov. Rick Scott, who has made education a top pri-
ority in the third year of his administration.
Ironically, the FCAT furor comes to a head as
Florida is in the process of instituting an entirely
new system of testing one that will largely sup-
plant FCAT in two years. The state has joined a
coalition of 45 states that is developing a shared set
of assessments in math and English known as the
Common Core Standards. As the Common Core
Standards are fully implemented in 2014-15, FCAT
will be phased out except for science testing.
A distinguished panel representing four stake-
holder groups will delve into the impact of FCAT and
the new Common Core Standards, as well as debate
the broad issue of academic accountability. The
panel will include:
Michael A. Grego, superintendent, Pinellas
County Schools
Mindy Haas, president-elect, Florida PTA
Jo Anne McCall, vice president, Florida Educa-

Pam Stewart, chancellor of K-12, Florida De-

hazards, mobility/coordination, multiple medica-
tions, low blood pressure, vision and hearing im-
pairments, diabetes, heart disease, cognitive

Young gets new
district, phone
SEMINOLE Congressman Bill Young has been
sworn into the new 113th Congress this month as
the representative of the newly numbered 13th
Congressional District of Florida.
Young also has a new phone number for his
Pinellas County district office located in Seminole.
The phone number is 392-4100.
"It is a great honor to represent the people of
Pinellas County and with the beginning of this
new Congress, we face many important issues,"
Young said. "I value the opinions of the people
who have elected me to serve them and I hope
they will continue to share their thoughts with me
through their calls, their letters and their e-
mails."
Under the Constitution, state legislatures re-
draw Congressional district boundaries every 10
years to reflect population changes identified by
the census. The number of Florida Congressional
districts grew by two to reflect a continuing
growth in population over the past 10 years, and
resulted in the renumbering of most Congression-
al districts.
Although Young's phone number for his district
office changes this month, the location remains
the same at 9210 113th St., on the campus of the
St. Petersburg College and collocated with the
Seminole Community Library.

"Night Blooms" by Carolyn Beard.


"Pitcher Plant" by George Greentield.


Art Guild winter show showcases 6 artists


By LUBA ROBINSON

TREASURE ISLAND The
work of six award-winning
artists will be on display through
Feb. 27 at the Community Cen-
ter by the Treasure Island Art
Guild.
Featured in the group's winter
show are Carolyn Beard, George
Greenfield, Winnie McIntyre,
Claire Paultre, Mary Ann Tucci,
and Colleen Ward.
A symphony of stunning color
creates chasms of form in "Co-
manche Moon" and "House of
the rising Sun", the art of Beard,
an illustrious acrylic painter. Re-
alism lends itself to the abstract
in "Night Blooms" and "The
Reef', together spelling the lyri-
cal touch of her brush.
Greenfield, a digital artist and
master of "visual impact," deliv-
ers the carnivorous "Pitcher
Plant" whose striking design and
intense color captures its prey as
well as the viewer's eye. While
"Sleeper" suggests reality in a
dream state, brilliant hues spill
over into "Untitled" and "Green
Peppers."
McIntyre, an accomplished oil
painter, introduces a portrait of
lovely "Leymah" posed in a re-
flective moment. With bold pri-
mary colors, she gives us strong
character studies in "Cuban
Lady" and "African Boy." "Life
Together" stirs the emotions as it
shows a viewer the essence of
what it's all about.
Representational fine artist
Claire Paultre brings to life
acrylics "Pelican at Rest," "Bait


House" and a watercolor "The
Causeway," Her Haitian roots
continue to speak of her sensitiv-
ity to the hues of the tropics in
the dazzling acrylic "End of Day,"
a poem without words.
Gleaning from an extensive
background in art education,
Tucci's acrylic abstracts success-
fully address drawing out emo-
tions and interpretations as in


"Volcano" and "Lattice Gone
Wild." "Geometry," in its' simplic-
ity, calms the spirit. "Broken
Heart" speaks to an "inner land-
scape."
An acute sense of color har-
mony triumphs in the work of
pastel artist and Guild president
Colleen Ward. Layers of glowing
hues perfume the air in "The
Garden Path" and "Peaceful Re-


flections." "Cabbage Key circa
1970s" takes us to the vintage
charm of a Florida of yesterday.
The beauty of a limited palette
and great composition gives us
'Three Bags Full."
The Treasure Island Commu-
nity Center is located on 106th
Avenue, just east of Gulf Boule-
vard. Call 547-4575 for hours of
operation.

Act of kindness


Photo courtesy of MAGGIE CINNELLA
A group of young Redington Beach residents recently visited the Gulf Beaches Public Library to bring
bagels and cream cheese for the staff. The children were doing 26 random acts of kindness in their
community to honor the 26 killed last month in Newtown, Conn. Their stop at the library was one of
their acts of kindness. They also made a snowflake and asked that it be put up in a window of the library
for all to see. Their other acts of kindness included taking homemade cookies to people they didn't
know in their neighborhood. From left are Jillian Steiermann, Harleigh Hayes, Hope Hayes, Hadley
Hayes, Heath Hayes and Josh Steiermann.

You may have a disorder called obstructive sleep apnea which stops your
breathing while you're 1L p'i;r.. and it can have serious consequences high
blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, depression, fatigue, diabetes and cancer.
Sleep apnea is often treated by wearing a facemask attached to an air
compressor called a CPAP that keeps the air passage open during the night.
But if you've already been diagnosed and tried a CPAP but can't wear it,
or suspect that you may be affected, we have another treatment option to
consider.
Dr. Maury Krystel, D.D.S. can provide a simple, effective and comfortable
solution to help reduce symptoms of sleep apnea a small, custom-fitted
retainer that fits in your mouth that gently holds your jaw in a forward
position and keeps your airway open.
Dr. Krystel has over 30 years experience helping patients solve medical
problems with dental solutions, often by working with physicians and
medical sleep specialists. And he may be able to help you. For a free sleep
apnea LL. 1; 1 i ,. or consultation about your already diagnosed sleep apnea,
come in and see Dr. Krystel. Call (727) 575-7900for an appointment.

New Year's Resolutions for
Seniors and their Families Comfort
Traditionally after the holidays, Koporo r.
people are busy making their new
years resolutions, deciding to quit bad habits and simply make
changes to better themselves. New years resolutions are easy to
make and fun to plan. The hard part is acting on them and keeping
your intentions alive throughout the New Year.
/his year, try a different approach. Think of ways to include fam-
ily and friends as support. Join forces and create resolutions to-
gether to increase the odds that you will stay true to these goals.
New years resolutions made together can be especially important
if you have a senior in your life. By helping each other, you each
gain a greater purpose, which can be most meaningful in the life
of a loved one who is growing older.
Comfort Keepers@, one of the nation's leading in-home care net-
works for adults, is known for enriching lives of seniors through
Interactive CaregivingTM. Research has proven that keeping sen-
iors physically, mentally, socially and emotionally engaged can
help them retain better cognitive function, stay healthier and living
independently longer.
Encourage letter writing. Handwritten letters have nearly be-
come a thing of the past. However, our seniors are from an era
when writing a letter by hand was valued and presented a more
personal way of staying in touch. Seniors still enjoy receiving let-
ters in the mail and responding in like to friends and loved ones.
They may enjoy reading that special letter every now and then.
Even writing a simple short note is a wonderful gesture.
Plan to age gracefully. It is never too late to pursue a healthy
lifestyle. If you live near your senior loved one, take walks together,
eat nutritious foods and encourage one another while doing so.
Share your favorite recipes. Exchanging healthy recipes can
help your elderly loved one eat more nutritious meals and you are
ensured they are eating well. Finding old recipes together passed
down through the generations can be a fun "together" time.
Talk about the hard stuff. This may not be a fun resolution
but an important one. While your loved one is able, discuss the
care they may desire, should the time come when it is needed. Talk
about who may become the caregiver or if an outside source such
as Comfort Keepers, will be hired. Talk about estate planning and
wills along with other related issues as this will prepare you all
for the inevitable. Discussing in advance en-
sures that your loves one's wishes are under-
stood by all.
Making New Year's resolutions together cre-
ates one more common bond within your re-
lationship with your senior loved one. Use
the above ideas or create your own, unique
to your situation but involve your loved one
and help one another reach your goals.
Strengthen your relationships and share your
love...all year long.

Intern finds a natural benefit in


helping to protect the watershed


By BOB COSTIGAN
There are a wide variety of reasons why a person may decide to do
volunteer work. For some it's simply looking to stay active after retire-
ment. For others it's the joy of being able to help others in their com-
munity. Or perhaps it's having special skills and talents to share with
others.
For Danielle Passerello, it began while attending the University of
South Florida in St. Petersburg. Passerello's major was environmental
science and as a requirement to re-
ceive her bachelor's degree, she H l i
had to complete a project or intern Hfl
in the environmental field. With the
help of the university, she became
a volunteer intern for the Pinellas h a n d s
County Watershed Management
Division, of the Department of En- Outstanding volunteers
vironmental and infrastructure.
Passerello said she has always "loved the environment, the outdoors
and science in general," so getting a degree that deals with the envi-
ronment and working in the field was a natural. The concern for the
environment led to concerns about pollution. She notes that all of the
stormwater drainage goes into the local waterways and not to the
wastewater treatment facility. Runoff of fertilizers, pesticides and haz-
ardous materials, along with oil and grease from vehicles, are just a
few of the contributors to polluted waterways.
Over the summer Passerello assisted the county in increasing the
public's awareness of the dangers caused by people polluting the envi-
ronment and waterways. Twice she was able to actually collect sam-
ples of water around the county to be tested. She didn't mind getting
dirty at all and wished her schedule had allowed her to do more of it.
Passerello enjoyed her internship with the Watershed Management
Division. Not only did she get to help the environment, but also she
met a number of very nice people. And she has made some great con-
tacts, which she hopes will help her in her quest to land a job.
"Jobs are so scarce right now, so working for the county with people
that are in the field helps tremendously. They may know someone or
some department that you didn't know even existed, so its' been
great."
She admits though that having just recently graduated from USF
and gotten remarried and moving to Seminole, she hasn't had much
time to actively seek a job but plans to do so in the coming year. "I've


kept my face out there
and my feelers and am
confident."
Natasha Dickrell, En-
vironmental specialist II
with Pinellas County -
Watershed Management,
said Passerello was great
to have helping out the
department. "We looked
forward to her internship
days since she jumped
right in to whatever we
needed her to do and ex-
ceeded our expectations
with every task. She had
a great attitude and
showed that she could
lead other volunteers
and helped others get
excited about what she
was working on." .

and through Pinellas County Volunteer Services. Dickrell points out
"our goal is to provide a learning environment as we expose them to a
variety of opportunities and experiences."

life of their community, while exploring interests, sharing knowledge,
assisting others and making friends. For more information, visit

Health officials report 40 percent rise in influenza


By SUZETTE PORTER
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is
reporting an increase in influenza activity in most
areas of the United States, and the Florida Depart-
ment of Health says a similar trend is occurring
around the state, including in Pinellas County.
"Pinellas hospitals are reporting a 40 percent in-
crease in influenza-like illnesses already and it's
only January," Maggie Hall, spokesperson for the
Pinellas County Health Department, said in a Jan.
10 email.
The CDC reported widespread activity in nearly
every state in a report for the week ending Jan. 5.
The biggest increases were in the eastern half of the
country, including Florida.
The Panhandle, Central and South Florida re-
gions were showing "higher than expected" numbers
of emergency room visits due to flu-like symptoms.
Most counties were reporting mild activity with only
20 counties experiencing moderate activity. Pinellas
is on the list of those reporting mild activity.
Hall said Florida's flu season typically begins in
February, so people still have time to get vaccinated,
the No. 1 recommended method for prevention of
the illness.
"Since the flu shot takes about two weeks to pro-
vide immunity, those who haven't gotten a vaccine
yet should do it very soon," Hall said.
She said vaccinations are available at the county
health department, as well as local doctor's offices
and clinics. Visit flu.gov and enter your zip code to
find a location in your area.
The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of
age or older get the flu vaccine each year.
As flu activity increases, the state DOH says peo-


ple should be alert for any symptoms, such as a
headache, fever, severe cough, runny nose or body
aches. Anyone with symptoms should contact their
primary care physician or clinic immediately, espe-
cially those at high risk for complications. Antiviral
medications can shorten the length and severity of
the illness, if started within 48 hours of contracting
the flu.
People with the flu should stay home. Get plenty
of rest and drink lots of water. Over the counter
medications may help with symptoms. Consult a
doctor if symptoms are severe or don't get better.
Flu viruses spread through coughing or sneezing.
Germs can pass to others who touch something
with flu viruses on it and then touch their mouth or
nose. People can spread flu germs before they know
they are sick, as well as while they are sick.
People with the flu should stay home until at
least 24 hours after their fever is gone. However, not
everyone with the flu has a fever, so people with flu-
like symptoms but no fever should use caution
when in public and be sure to cover coughs and
sneezes.
To help prevent becoming ill, residents should
wash their hands often with soap and water or use
an alcohol-based hand cleaner. Avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth. Avoid close contact with sick
people and stay at least 3 feet away from someone
who is coughing or sneezing. Healthy people, as well
as those who are sick, should cover their nose and
mouth with a tissue when they cough or sneeze and
throw the tissue in the trash after its use.
Anyone can get the flu, even healthy people. The
state DOH says that 15 percent to 40 percent of the
U.S. population are likely to develop illness from in-
fluenza every year.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports widespread activity in nearly every state for the week

Serious problems from influenza can happen at
any age; however, people age 65 years and older,
people of any age with chronic medical conditions,
and very young children are more likely to get com-


plications from influenza.
An average of 36,000 die from influenza each
year, and 114,000 per year get care in a hospital
due to an influenza infection.


Forecasters say cooler weather is coming for the weekend


By SUZETTE PORTER
After days of unseasonably warm weather, the extended forecast is
calling for a high of only 71 degrees on Saturday, Jan. 19 a welcome
relief after nearly two weeks of near 80-degree temperatures.
According to the National Weather Service in Ruskin, temperatures
10 to almost 20 degrees above normal are expected to continue
through much of this week. A cold front is expected to stall over north-
ern portions of the state, coming as far south as Pinellas County, Fri-
day night, into Saturday. Sunday's forecast calls for a slight chance of
rain with a high of 75.
Forecasters say the record heat is the result of a ridge of high pres-
sure that is keeping a warm and muggy air mass across much of the
state.
Record highs were reported in several locations Jan. 9, including the
St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport where a temperature of


83 broke the old record of 81 degrees set in 2005. Tarpon Springs
recorded 84 degrees that day, one degree less than the record of 85 set
in 1937.
St. Petersburg International also reported a record-high low night-
time temperature of 67 degrees well over the previous record of 63
set Jan. 9, 2005. The record of 66 degrees set in 1933 in Tarpon
Springs also was replaced with a nighttime low of 67 degrees.
The hottest temperature reported as of Jan. 13 in Pinellas was 87
degrees recorded in northwest Seminole at 2:12 p.m. Jan. 9. Several
locations reported 86 degrees that day, including one in northeast
Seminole, east-northeast Lealman, east Lealman, east-northeast Tar-
pon Springs and west Tarpon Springs.
A daytime high of 82 on Jan. 11 broke the previous record of 79 set
in 2008 at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. "Nor-
mal" high for the date is 70 degrees, according to NWS statistics. St.
Petersburg's Albert Whitted Airport reported a new record high of 83


on Jan. 12, just a tad warmer than the previous high temperature of
82 set in 1989.
New records for nighttime high lows also were set on both dates. The
St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport recorded 68 degrees
Jan. 11, breaking the record set in 2005 by six degrees. On Jan. 12,
the low was 68 degrees, up five degrees from the previous record of 63
degrees recorded in 2008.
The NWS released weather statistics for 2012 on Jan. 2 and report-
ed that the year was the second warmest since record keeping began
in 1890. Average daily highs were reported at 82.9 degrees with lows
averaging 66.7 degrees for a mean temperature of 74.8 the second
highest since 1890.
The warmest year was 1990 with an average temperature of 75.3
degrees. The highest temperature ever recorded in the state was 99 de-
grees on June 5, 1985, and the lowest is 18 recorded Dec. 13, 1962.
The year 2012 was the 25 wettest with 55.99 inches of rainfall.

Woman rescues young


eagle at Philippe Park


By BRIAN GOFF
SAFETY HARBOR It was just
going to be another, normal day
at the park for Carolyn Puckett.
Puckett, 43, of Dunedin often
made the trip to the Philippe Park
in Safety Harbor to meet her
friend Annette Marie Anderson.
There was nothing unusual
about the day, yet Puckett would
later describe it as one of the best
days of her life.
She arrived at the park around
11:30 a.m. Jan. 11 and sat on a
bench waiting for her friend.
Alone, she began to notice un-
usual things around her. A great
blue heron was standing in the
water nearby facing her. "It was-
n't looking toward the water
where its food was, it was unusu-
al in that it looked at me," said
Puckett.
Then an osprey began circling
overhead, around and around
her. Finally it flew away but with-
in minutes another osprey came
and did the same thing. "They
weren't fishing, they were trying
to send a message," she said.
Then, said Puckett, the morn-
ing light changed and seemed
like a beacon shining on her. She
was soon to discover what that
beacon was for. Shortly after her
friend Anderson arrived and they
chatted on the bench for five min-
utes. Then they both noticed
something large in the water
swimming toward them, swim-
ming toward where the morning
light had been shining.
"We thought it might have
been a giant turtle," said Puckett.
"It was coming directly at us. We
soon saw that it was a falcon-like
bird; it turned out to be an eagle."
It was then that the adventure


intensified.
"Annette said let's go closer, so
we did," she said. 'The bird came
directly toward our feet; it was
soaking wet. It opened its wings
and we could see that it was not
injured that way but it was just
too weak to fly."
Then Plunkett said the bird
looked up at them, made a con-
nection then seemed to give up.
"He slumped over, he totally
slumped over, it was so sad; it
was enough to make you cry,"
Plunkett said.
It was then Plunkett and oth-
ers in the vicinity called the Sun-
coast Seabird Sanctuary to have
the bird rescued.
Plunkett said while they were
waiting for the rescuers to arrive
she learned a valuable lesson.
"If you see an injured bird you
should stay with it at all times, at
least keep an eye on it," she said.
"Annette and I both left the bird
for a few moments, other people
had moved off and when we got
back the bird had disappeared."
They finally located the bird
nearby in a mangrove thicket
near the seawall. It had taken
refuge there.
'The bird wasn't frightened and
trusted me and he seemed to
know help was coming," said
Plunkett.
When the help did arrive, two
hours had passed since the bird
was first spotted. Plunkett said
the rescuers were very careful
with the young eagle and
wrapped it in a towel and took
him away in a cage.
"Just before they left I went to
say goodbye to the eagle, he
made eye contact with me. I knew
he was all right," she said.
Laura Riordan, an avian care


specialist at the Seabird Sanctu-
ary in Redington Shores said the
eagle is doing fine.
"He's doing great," she said.
"His lower beak was extended
longer than his upper beak, and
the upper beak was twisted to
one side. We're not sure if that is
a birth defect or the result of a
fight with another eagle, that is
possible."
Riordan said they have man-
aged to shave off a little of the
bottom beak to bring it more in
line with the other and they will
do a little more in a few days. She
said the twist in the upper beak
couldn't be fixed so the bird can-
not be released.
Apart from the beak issue Rior-
dan says the bird will be OK.
"He is eating and drinking on
his own," she said. "He doesn't
like fish but he does like mice so
we don't have to do anything fur-
ther. His wings are fine, they get
full extension."
It is because of those wings
that the bird can't stay at the
Seabird Sanctuary.
"Our flight pen is not quite big
enough for a bald eagle," said Ri-
ordan. 'They need a lot of room to
fly and they need flight time. If
they don't get it their wings will
stiffen."
The Audubon Birds of Prey
Center in Maitland is a possible
destination for the eagle, which is
a juvenile. It takes five years for a
bald eagle to mature and until
that time, short of a blood test, it
is impossible to tell if it is a male
or female. Riordan said they
would like to find out more about
the bird before they decide where
it will go and be used as an edu-
cational tool for school children.
Puckett, who first spotted the


nIulu uy ,r'li.JL
This injured bald eagle at Philippe Park was rescued and taken to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary.


eagle, said her background came
together to make it all possible. A
former physiotherapist, four
years ago she went into a field of
holistic approach to healing. She
believes the energy techniques
she learned helped her communi-
cate with the eagle and helped it
trust her during the rescue. She
hopes to put photos of the bird
on her website blissmyofascialre-
lease.com.
Plunkett said she will never
forget that day in the park, the
day she helped save the young
eagle.

Spring thaw comes early to area waters


What a beautiful January we've had so far.
With a bit of a drop in temperatures expected for this weekend, it
won't take long to get back to the upper 70s. Also, our water tempera-
ture remains warm for this time of
year as it lingers around the low 60s
mark and fish are active both in-
shore and offshore. .. Fish Tales
Trout and redfish have been feed- "I
ing well on the incoming tide this ,. ', ,-"'
week; low tides in the morning have
had us bouncing jigs through the
schools of mullet that are hanging on the far outer edge of the flat
where the water drops off into the channel.
Typically if you're working the jig up shallow, right in the mullet, you
stand a good chance at hooking into a redfish and if you cast to the
deep side of the edge you have a good chance at scoring some quality
sized trout.
The mullet are the key. Find them and at least as far as the redfish
are concerned you're in the game.
Offshore fishing has also been good, with red grouper and amber-
jack being the key targets.
Sunday I had a great opportunity to get offshore; seas were flat and
made the run out to 130 feet of water a piece of cake.
Targeting sandy roll offs, we were in search of red grouper. Red


grouper unlike gag grouper seem to prefer a much softer bottom with
less relief than the typical limestone ledges that make perfect habitat
for the gags.
With light winds drift fishing is a great option. It lets you cover some
water in order to best locate the schools of baitfish and in turn the red
grouper.
Also, I definitely noticed a big difference in the strike or lack thereof
from the red grouper versus the gags I'm used to fishing for.
The reds will often pick up the bait and very slowly move off with it,
very similar to a bass strike.
So if you are adrift you have a much better chance at detecting the
bite as the boat is drifting away from the fish.
Amberjack fishing was phenomenal that day.
We targeted a wreck in 100 feet of water and were met with a school
of hungry amberjacks.
Chumming with live pinfish kept the jacks around the boat for as
long as we wanted. It didn't take long to secure a limit of one per per-
son and to catch and re-lease a few more for fun.
Until next week get bent!
Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get
a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when
and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to

Rays' Fuld has failed to let diabetes keep him from his goals


By BRIAN GOFF

BELLEAIR It isn't any fun to discover when you
are 10 years old that you have diabetes and your life
is going to change forever. Just ask Sam Fuld, out-
fielder for the Tampa Bay Rays who was that 10-
year-old back in New Hampshire.
"It is an incredible burden," he said. "It changes
your life, day to day. It isn't just the pricking of your
finger to check your blood or the injections of in-
sulin. It is also a mental thing, a constant, it is
tough for people of any age."
Fuld made the remarks during an interview at the
Belleair Country Club on Jan. 11, where he was the
chairman of the second annual Fight for a Cure Golf
Tournament on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Re-
search Foundation.
He said his diabetes was not something that kept
him down even as he grew older and was a multi-
sport athlete.
"I really didn't change a thing. I stayed just as ac-
tive as ever and played soccer and basketball as well
as baseball," he said.
However, he said that baseball is probably the
best sport for a diabetic.
'There is some down time in baseball, time for
you to check your blood," Fuld said.
The golf tournament is part of a weekend long se-
ries of activities organized by Mike Wisniewski, the
president of the National Aviation Academy in
Largo.
His son, Kyle, 11, was diagnosed with diabetes
when he was 2 years old. As a result, finding a cure
is at the top of his mind for Wisniewski.
"Having a diabetic in the family is a 24/7 respon-
sibility, it never leaves your mind," he said. "We had
to get up at 2 in the morning to monitor his blood
level. You are always monitoring and checking the
blood sugar. But it is all about trying to do every-


thing in life that we would be doing without it."
Through his aviation academy Wisniewski started
a car show, which was held on Saturday the day
after the golf tournament, and a career fair on the
day before the tournament. All the proceeds go to
JDRF.
"We're not saying a cure for diabetes is right
around the corner like we used to say," he said.
"And while we're funding research work toward find-
ing a cure, we're also supportive of efforts to prevent
the disease and that in its own way is a cure. We're
trying to make life for diabetics as good as we can."
The executive director of JDRF, Carolyn Boos,
paid tribute to Wisniewski and others for their work.
"Every event they organize and hold puts us one
step closer to finding a cure," she said. "Our families
are deeply involved with the organization; it is a per-
sonal mission for many of them."
It is also, obviously, a personal mission for Fuld,
who is as dedicated as anyone else toward the
cause. Perhaps his play in the field is an indication
how he views the fight against diabetes, with hustle
and hard work. In fact you can't sit down with Fuld
without talking a little baseball and he's ready.
He said he likes the Rays' chances this year.
"It is scary to think how good our division (Ameri-
can League East) is," he said. "Look at what the
Blue Jays did in the offseason and who would have
predicted the Orioles would have come on strong
like they did last year. Our team on paper is as good
as ever."
He credits his manager for that.
"Joe (Madden) can get the most out of guys," he
said. "And the front office is a Moneyball type organ-
ization; they are always going to make sure we're
competitive."
Fuld said he was sorry to see James Shields go,
traded to Kansas City in the off-season.
"He was a huge component to this team," Fuld


said. "He led the rotation. He was a tremendous per-
son, so dominant. He was a good leader and a good
guy."
As for himself and his style of play, Fuld said he
really didn't have a choice.
"I realized early on that I was not going to be a big
person so I had to hustle to make it."
In fact if there is anything about his game that
Fuld takes exception with, it is the lack of hustle on
the part of some players.
"I understand it, but I don't agree with it," he
said. "We should never be satisfied with anything
until we go all out. That is the way this game should
be played."
Then Fuld returned to the reason he was in Bel-

leair at the golf tournament, to help raise money for
diabetes research. He said as devastating as it was
discovering he had diabetes, he was able to get
through it with support.
"My family gave me all the support in the world,"
he said. "But they also taught me to be realistic;
there is no getting rid of this, so live your life."
One of the things that Fuld does now is get very
involved in JDRF to help others. The fact that he is
a major league baseball player is important for
youngsters who look up to him. And he has a mes-
sage for them. He says it is a simple message.
"I stress the importance of being positive and op-
timistic," he said. "Minimize the moments of feeling
sorry for yourself and don't let anything stop you."

The Quest for Income in a Low Interest Rate Environment


As interest rates remain at historic
lows, many investors are finding that
the investment strategies they have
traditionally counted on as a stable
source of income simply aren't pro-
ducing projected yields.
This low interest rate environment
has been particularly difficult on re-
tirees who depend on interest income
from fixed-income investments to pay
living expenses and it's unlikely the
situation will change soon. The Fed-
eral Reserve Board has indicated that
it will keep interest rates low until the
unemployment declines to 6.5 percent
or inflation rises to 2.5 percent.
Retirees are faced with some diffi-
cult decisions. To maintain the same
standard of living they have enjoyed,
they may be tempted to dip into their
principal investment but that may
jeopardize their ability to maintain
their standard of living in the years to
come. Others may select to reduce
their standard of living today in hopes
that interest rates will rise again in the
future. Still others may be considering
other investments that can potentially
generate higher returns but such in-
vestments typically also involve a
higher level of risk.
What should a retiree do in this low
interest rate environment?
Elizabeth (Liza, pronounced Lizza)
Campa-Flanagan, Certified Financial
Planner with Raymond James Finan-
cial Services Inc., is keenly attuned to
the financial climate. She is focused on


providing an integrated advice plat-
form for all clients.
Liza recently sat down and an-
swered questions about the low inter-
est rate dilemma.
Tampa Bay Newspapers: In
today's low interest rate environment,
what options are available to today's
income investors?
Liza: When I think of an income in-
vestor, I think of a retiree. Retirement
income resources are Social Security,
one's own savings, and if you are
lucky a company pension, which is
not as likely today, unless you have a
government type job. Your own re-
sources can be invested in CDs, tradi-
tional stock and bond portfolios,
bonds (corporate, government, munic-
ipal), global bonds (emerging market
or foreign government bonds), divi-
dend paying stocks, master limited
partnerships, immediate annuities,
fixed annuities or variable annuities.*
There are pros and cons to each of
these options.
TBN: Have today's low yields led
investors to venture beyond bonds to
get the income they want?
Liza: For many, that quest has led to
dividend stocks or other investments.
My caution is to make sure you do
your homework, because that yield
could reflect the battered stock price of
a struggling company that may soon
be reduced. Call if you would like help
exploring suitable income producing
options for your portfolio. There might


be more options
than you realize.
TBN: Can
municipal bonds
work in a low in-
terest rate envi-
ronment?
Liza: Munici-
pal bonds, are
debt obligations
issued by state
and local govern-
ments as well as
other govern-
mental entities to Liza Campe
fund projects such Certified Fir
as building highways, hospitals,
schools and sewer systems.
What I find is that for investors in
relatively high tax brackets the yields
of municipal bonds often exceed the
after-tax yields of comparable quality
corporate bonds. Income from munic-
ipal bonds is not subject to federal in-
come taxation; however, it may be
subject to state and local taxes and, for
certain investors, to the alternative
minimum tax.
TBN: Should retirees also consider
international stocks as they weigh
their options?
Liza: Some of the top dividend
payers may have overseas addresses.
Many foreign firms offer attractive
payouts but there are additional
risks. When it comes to international
stocks location does matter when it
comes to currency risk, additional


taxes that might be
due on dividend in-
come, differing fi-
nancial accounting
standards, and pos-
sible political and
ec onomic c
volatilityIn evaluat-
ing companies here
and abroad in terms
of their dividend
yields, the major
focus should be on a
company's financial
a-Flanagan condition and its
nancial Planner policy and history re-
garding dividends. Dividends are not
guaranteed companies can and do
change or stop their payouts. There-
fore, the key is selecting companies
that have the capacity to maintain
their dividends in good times and
bad. Look for large, well-established
companies with strong balance sheets,
sustainable cash flow, consistent busi-
nesses and a long record of paying -
and even better, raising their divi-
dends.
TBN: How does an investor find
the right balance between risk and re-
turn?
Liza: It's pretty clear that for many
investors "risk" has become a scary
word. Market gyrations and uncer-
tainties about the U.S. and global
economies, plus a very understand-
able desire to avoid losses, have kept
many investors on the sidelines. But


for many people, aiming for the re-
turns necessary to achieve a comfort-
able retirement inevitably involves
accepting risk, especially when fixed
income yields are so low. Therefore,
since we can't avoid it altogether, our
real challenge is being as smart as pos-
sible about managing the primary
risks that accompany retirement.
TBN: What are some of the pri-
mary types of investment risk in-
vestors seeking higher yields should
know about?
Liza: As you reach for higher yields
in this low rate environment, you
should know about the following
types of investment risk-
Market risk the possibility that
an investment may lose its value
when traded in the financial markets.
Credit risk- the possibility that the
issuer of an investment may not live
up to its financial obligations and
cause you to lose your invested capital
or not receive expected interest pay-
ments.
Interest rate risk the risk that, if
interest rates rise, the price (value) of
an investor's bond holdings and cer-
tain stocks may/could decline.
Liquidity risk the risk that you
will be unable to liquidate an asset
(such as real estate, collectibles or

Foodies rejoice: Wild Fields Marketplace opens

Wild Fields offers delicious, nutritious grocery store alternative


Wild Fields Marketplace, now open in Belleair Bluffs, is an all-
encompassing fresh market, offering natural and specialty gro-
ceries along with ready-to-go prepared entrees.
Shoppers will find an amazing selection as
they check off items on their grocery list every-
thing from fresh locally farmed conventional
and organic produce and European breads
baked fresh daily to decadent desserts, cheeses,
wine and fresh seafood.
Wild Fields Marketplace is committed to offer-
ing deliciously wholesome and mindful food op-
tions. By offering top quality, natural, organic and "clean"
specialty foods made from nature's finest ingredients in a
friendly and inviting atmosphere, Wild Field Marketplace helps
bring nourishment to the body in a setting that is soothing to the
soul.
"Helping others achieve perfect balance through mindful eating
and maximizing the overall food experience is our ultimate goal,"
said Mike Walguarnery, owner of Wild Fields Marketplace.

Department highlights
The meat department at Wild Fields Marketplace boasts an im-
pressive selection of all natural Angus beef humanely raised. The
beef is prime and top choice, aged, all natural Angus beef, grass-
fed and free from hormones and antibiotics.
"Our beef is not just tender and juicy, but healthy for you,"
Mike said.
Like their beef, the pork is grain fed, lean, and raised in the Mid-
west. The chicken is hormone free, antibiotic free and cage free.
Wild Fields poultry is fresh, tender and second to none. Lamb is
all natural spring lamb.
Wild Fields' seafood is brought to shoppers fresh daily caught
in local waters right off day boats.
"We sell all wild seafood the way nature wanted fish to grow,"
Mike said. "From fish, to shrimp, to crab, to lobster even shell-


fish and caviar ... we have it all."
As for produce, Wild Fields Marketplace carries organic and
conventional local produce fresh from the farm.
From crisp greens to ripe fruit, shoppers will
find it's like going straight to the local farmer's
market.
The bakery features European, artisan, and
homemade fresh-baked breads. Shoppers also

will find some the best, decadent
desserts and imported pastries.
The beer and wine selection is un-
rivaled.
"You'll find reds, whites, blends,
imports and domestics at Wild Fields
Marketplace," Mike said. "We carry wine from all over the world:
organic and sustainable, conventional and traditional; wines for
the connoisseur or just for the evening dinner. At Wild Fields we
can help you find the wine you need or special order the wine you
want."


What's wine without an appropriate cheese pairing?
Wild Fields specialty cheese selection includes nearly 160 dif-
ferent types of cheeses, hand-selected exclusively for the market-
place. These cheeses come from all around the world and pair well
with the Wild Fields' fine wine selection.

Ready to cook and catering
Wild Fields Marketplace offers marinated meats, seafood and
poultry ready to cook.
"We did the work so you don't have to," Mike explained. "Just
grill or bake and serve."
Options include everything from steaks to fish fillets, lean pork,
and chicken cutlets.
"We trim, prepare, and marinade a variety of proteins in the
chef's special recipes so all you need is a grill," Mike said.
Catering services for holiday events and special occasions also
are available at Wild Fields.
"Our catering is top notch and available seven days a week to
fulfill all of your event needs," Mike said. "Call ahead or come
speak to the chef one-on-one."

About Wild Fields
The concept evolved by taking some of the most popu-
lar trends in small, specialty grocery and produce stores
and pairing them with a unique layout and atmosphere
developed exclusively by API. API is a specialty grocery
store design company that has designed stores all over the
world for nearly 30 years.
This store is the first of many planned in Florida.
"The expansion is expected to be one per every 10 to 12
months starting in 2014," said Mike.
Wild Fields Marketplace is conveniently located in Belleair
Bluffs at 2900 West Bay Drive. Hours are Monday through Friday,
9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call

Free IT certification
available at SPC
Unemployed workers in the
Tampa Bay area who are interest-
ed in a career in information
technology can receive free IT cer-
tification training at St. Peters-
burg College or Hillsborough
Community College.
To be eligible, individuals must
be 18 or older, a resident of Pinel-
las or Hillsborough counties,
have a high school diploma or
GED and be unemployed.
The Tampa Bay Hi-Tech Train-
ing program is funded by a $3.8
million grant awarded to the
Tampa Bay WorkForce Alliance
and WorkNet Pinellas by the U.S.
Department of Labor. The grant
covers tuition, books and fees for
certification training at SPC and
HCC for individuals who meet the
qualifications.
"Information technology is one
of the fastest growing career fields
in Florida and across the coun-
try. Job seekers with specific IT
related training and certifications
are in high demand," said Sharon
Setterlind, dean of SPC's College
of Computer and Information
Technology. "The HITT program
will help create a diverse pool of
talented workers to meet the
needs of IT employers."
In addition to being in high de-
mand, information technology is
a high-paid career field. Last
year, the median hourly wage for
the IT industry in the Tampa Bay
area was $29.55.
Full details about the grant are
available on the websites for
WorkNet Pinellas and the Tampa
Bay WorkForce Alliance. Call

Airport shows
passenger increase
CLEARWATER St. Peters-
burg-Clearwater International
Airport airlines recently reported
an overall 4 percent increase in
2012 over 2011, with 865,942
passengers.
Domestic overall was up 3 per-
cent and International increased
29 percent.
The airport's largest airline, Al-
legiant, served 24 cities and
743,996 passengers in 2012, a
5.7 percent increase over 2011.
Beau Rivage Resort and Casino
increased frequencies to Gulf-
port-Biloxi to five times a week for
a 62 percent increase in passen-
gers in 2012 using Vision Air-
lines. And, International service
to Canada by Sunwing and Air
Transat showed significant gains,
including seasonal service to
Toronto beginning a month earli-
er than in 2011 and added ca-
pacity from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Allegiant is poised for increases
in 2013 with plans to bring
retrofitted 166 seat MD80 aircraft
to PIE and possible additional
destinations.
'We also are seeing a growth in
outbound passengers as more
and more of our Tampa Bay com-
munity learns about the great
fares and non-stop flights that
make air travel so convenient,"
said Noah Lagos, airport director.


"We are very excited about the fu-
ture growth of air service at St.
Petersburg-Clearwater Interna-
tional Airport."

tional with the remaining 40
hotel rooms, restaurant, tiki

Affordable housing
breaks ground
LARGO Local officials recent-
ly celebrated the groundbreaking
for Pinellas Heights, a 153-unit
affordable housing community for
senior citizens.
The ceremony took place at the
Pinellas County Housing Authori-
ty site at 11479 Ulmerton Road
in Largo. Norstar Development
USA, LP and the Pinellas County
Housing Authority are co-devel-
opers for the project.
"Today was another step for-
ward for the Pinellas County
Housing Authority in providing
more affordable housing to the
citizens we serve," said housing
authority Chairman Joseph Trio-
lo. "I am honored to be a part of
this great organization."
Pinellas Heights is a mixed-fi-
nance redevelopment of the for-
mer Greenhouse Shoppes
commercial strip center, eight
acres owned by the city of Largo.
The former strip center was large-
ly vacant and in need of signifi-
cant repair.
The new mixed-finance com-
munity of 153 apartment homes
will provide additional affordable
housing for seniors, ages 62 and
older, with incomes less than 60
percent of the area median in-
come. The apartment homes are
scheduled to be ready for occu-
pancy by summer 2014.
"It was a delight to work with
the Pinellas County Housing Au-
thority on the Pinellas Heights
project," said Richard Higgins,
president of Norstar. "It was an
extremely complicated deal that
required the participation of myr-
iad public and private sector or-
ganizations. In the end, it was
well worth the hard work as we
are now under construction on a
beautiful building that will house
153 low income seniors who des-
perately need affordable housing
in Pinellas County."
Along with the developers, the
U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development, Housing Fi-
nance Authority of Pinellas Coun-


ty, Pinellas County Community
Development, city of Largo, RBC
Capital Markets and JP Morgan
Chase provided funding for the
$24 million development. The
Federal Home Loan Bank of At-
lanta also provided a $1 million
Affordable Housing Program
grant to the project.

A misinterpretation of the
Second Amendment
Editor:
In light of recent events, perhaps now is the time to revisit the
Second Amendment and re-engage in the discussion of the rights it
was intended to convey.
Whether you believe the framers wanted us to interpret the Con-
stitution strictly on the basis of intent or you embrace the proposi-
tion it was created as a living document, one that was meant to be
subjected to contemporary interpretation matters not in the context
of this discussion.
At the time the Bill of Rights was under consideration, the law of
the land required that all male citizens, when called to military serv-
ice, must report with their own musket, powder and shot. This clear-
ly indicates the discussion, as well as the resultant amendment the
framers drafted, was never intended by them to address what was at
the time a broadly accepted reality. The reality was the fact that
most male citizens were not already armed. This was their right. In
addition, it was also vital to their own security as well as that of
their nation. This made it not only a fundamental right but also
more importantly a legally mandated responsibility.
What the framers were trying to address when they proposed the
Second Amendment centered on the issue of whether the govern-
ment should create a state militia, federal militia, a standing Army
or none of the above. This is where the discussion was centered.
Most citizens accepted at the time that because of the instability
that existed in the political world, coupled with the disagreements
between Americans and native Indian population due to our west-
ward expansion, security decisions were the government's
paramount concern.
However, at the same time there was a prevalent fear among many
that whatever decision was made as to the form that protection
should take, once it was decided exactly what kind of military force
was necessary, Congress must take the steps to assure it could not
be turned against the very government that gave birth to it. Thus, in
the framers' final draft when they wrote, "A well-regulated militia
being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people
to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," they were rendering
their decision regarding the twin dilemmas of internal and external
security. The rights of individuals were never given consideration in
these discussions.
Accepting this hypothesis it would follow, since there were no spe-
cific provisions into the Second Amendment directly prohibiting
them from doing so, Congress, with the president in concert, re-
mains free to regulate the rights of private citizens to be armed as
they see fit. Nothing has occurred in the intervening years after this
situation. Because of this, should they (Congress) decide on regulat-
ing gun ownership, they are acting within the provisions granted
them in the Constitution. Those citizens who do not find favor with
this action are free to register their objections as citizens always
have. I refer of course to seeking redress at the ballot box.
Finally, to those who subscribe to the theory of interpretation
based on the framers' intent, I would hope you find consolation in
the fact you have a generally recognized right to own, without re-
striction, a musket, powder and shot. In the meantime, I would ad-
monish the NRA, its members and all who campaign on their behalf
or support them legislatively to quit hiding behind the Second
Amendment in pursuit of their narrow agenda.

Do the simple and sensible things first
Editor:
How about doing the simple and sensible things first like putting
security guards and not crosswalk guards in our schools? If metal
detectors work at airports, why wouldn't they work at our schools?
Why not have security guards at the front and rear doors of schools?
Why don't we have security cameras at all schools and in the play-
grounds as well? Why aren't classroom doors secured during class-
es? Isn't that what all that money from state lotteries is for?
Maybe we should take a look at our maximum-security prisons for
examples on how to keep a large facility safe and secure. Sure, we
could push for more gun controls but let's do the simple and sensi-
ble things first! What if these psychos had been terrorists? Would
gun controls have prevented any of it? Parental responsibility is also
key to having guns at home and should perhaps be scrutinized and
enforced. Anyone who owns a gun should bear responsibility for
owning these guns and be accountable for their use or misuse.
Perhaps no 25- or 30-year-old should ever be able to purchase an
automatic or semiautomatic weapon but, if they are old enough to
fight for our country, wouldn't they be old enough to also purchase
these weapons? Maybe we should focus more on someone's mental
health and issue gun permits to only those who are sane and re-
sponsible adults. Gun shows also should have to follow the same
rules and regulations as retail gun stores. Ultimately, sales of as-
sault and high capacity magazine semiautomatic weapons should be
regulated.

Robocalls out of control
Editor:
I have just registered all my phone numbers with the Florida do-
not-call program as apparently the federal registry does no good. I
have been getting numerous telemarketing calls, both on my cell
phone and my landline, especially for credit consolidation. These are
prerecorded calls that if you listen all the way through, give you an
option to be put on their do not call lists, which they pay no atten-
tion to. I received another call within the hour. Now I've read you
shouldn't validate your number by pressing a button.
Since robocalls are so out of control, I think free caller ID (for
landlines) and a free reverse number look-up directory should be
made available to us although many numbers aren't valid, as well as
providing us with a way to block these calls. Neither of my phones
nor service providers allow me to block calls.
Currently, all directories I've found are linked to a pay service for
caller disclosure. As long as I am paying for my phone services, I
should have the right to govern who calls my phones.

Right turn scofflaws
Editor:
I agree with the article by Brian Goff in the Jan. 3 Seminole Bea-
con about the disregard of right turn stop signs and traffic laws. I
ride a bike and often observe motorists roll thru stop signs without
looking both ways. This is particularly dangerous for school children
riding bikes since they assume that motorists see them. In fact, I
have experienced motorists flying through stop signs and not both-
ering to stop on red signals when making a right turn.
The fault for this scofflaw mentality is the lack of enforcement by
law enforcement agencies. Police must enforce the basic traffic laws
to prevent further deaths and injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.

What were the greatest inventions?


When it comes time for us to list the great-
est invention of all times, we've got a tough
job. People have been inventing stuff since
Hector was a pup. Which immediately raises
the question: who was Hector, in the first
place? If he is or was a dog, he must be get-
ting pretty old by now. Have you ever met a
dog named Hector? Nor have I. In fact, I don't
recall ever meeting a human named Hector.
Some experts say the wheel is hu-
mankind's most important invention. With-
out the wheel the Roman chariot would never
have come along, followed by MGM movies
about chariot races starring Charlton Heston,
which would have been a big loss for all of
us.
Let's say that the wheel was invented in
7200 B.C. Well, if humans are so blamed
smart and creative, how come it took us until
about 1990 A.D. to put wheels on suitcases?
I recently read that adding wheels to luggage
cost the jobs of millions of hotel porters
worldwide. Today we don't need a bellman, or
bellwoman, to lug our luggage up to our
room, open the door, turn on the lights,
check the air conditioning, and then stand
there waiting for us to hand over a tip. In-
stead we get to figure out how to open the
door ourselves, using a piece of plastic in-
stead of a key, and hoping we've got the cor-
rect end of the plastic inserted in the tiny slot
that serves as a keyhole, or at least used to
back when Cal Coolidge was president.
Human speech was an important inven-
tion, or development. Before words came
along, we communicated in grunts. "Ugga
ugga boo ugga" meant "Oona, there's a di-
nosaur at the cave entrance. Could you see
what he wants?" Today many husbands still
talk in grunts, especially in January during
NFL playoffs. "Harry, dear, have you noticed

that the sofa is on fire?" "Ronk ulla morfl" is
her husband's reply, at least when the quar-
terback gets sacked for the seventh time.
After understandable speech came along,
printing was sure to follow. Around 4000
B.C. a couple of Sumerians were horsing
around with wet clay tablets, and discovered
that if they took a blunt reed and pressed it
into the clay it would form a picture. One
man drew two round circles and put a smil-
ing face above them. He said, "I have just
drawn Ninbanda!" That was the name of the
local bosomy queen. His buddy agreed. They
made some more clay tablets, and proceeded
to invent the earliest form of writing, to be
known as cuneiform. "Cuneiform" means
wedge-shaped, because the blunt reeds made
wedgy impressions. (Are you getting all this?
If not, let me know and I will instead write
sixteen consecutive columns about the feder-
al budget, which should teach us all a les-
son.)
Several thousand years later someone in-
vented moveable type and the printing press.
This allowed mass publishing of Martin
Luther's objections to the corruption of the
Roman Catholic Church. This led to the
Protestant Reformation, which in turn gave
us Southern Baptists, the Mormon Church
and Mitt Romney. The moral: be careful what
you invent, buster.

The spear, the crossbow, gunpowder, the
drone and the atomic bomb have all been
vital to the development of civilization. Before
they came along, men (and some women)
just sat and grumbled about their enemies.
"I hate that guy. I wish I could smack him
one." Weapons of war allowed people to ex-
press their hostility. Warfare cost money, so
we invented taxes. To authorize taxes, we
needed politicians, parliament and congress-
es. Do you see the logic in all this? It's why
Newt Gingrich's family coat of arms features
a spear, a cudgel and a Thompson subma-
chine gun.
In the 6th century A.D. the Chinese in-
vented toilet paper. The end result (no pun
intended) is those disgusting Charmin TV
ads showing bears hoping they're "clean"
enough to pass inspection.
The telephone was a major invention. It
encouraged people to talk to one another,
even when they had little of consequence to
say. The cellphone further advanced mind-
less chatting, and eliminated the likelihood
that people might spend time thinking rather
than talking. Today, with our handheld com-
puters, iPads, Androids, etc., we seldom talk.
Instead we email, text, Twitter, Gabble and
Natter, often while operating a motor vehicle
or giving birth to triplets.
An invention humankind is dying for (liter-
ally) is a device that will eliminate or severely
reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the
world's smokestacks. But before that hap-
pens, we'll need another major advance: a
majority of people who will choose good
sense rather than money, power and com-
fort.

Does anybody out there see me?


I had this morbid, strange thought the
other night as I walked across the street to
work out at my neighborhood fitness center.
Wouldn't it be ironic if I were run over by a
vehicle the day after our newspapers began
publishing a series of stories on pedestrian
safety?
Safe and sound. But I share many of the
sentiments expressed by pedestrians who
TBN correspondent Brian Goff interviewed a
few weeks ago. Here's a quote from a person
who spoke to him: "I nearly got hit twice re-
cently. I walk this way every day and I have
to be constantly on my guard for cars that
don't stop even when I have the right of way."
That's troubling, but true. Governments
are up against a powerful force despite their
best efforts to make our streets safer for
pedestrians; it's called human nature.
As an avid walker and jogger, I've seen the
dangers of trying to cross an intersection
where numerous vehicles are converging,
particularly at rush hour when drivers are
tense, tired and in a hurry.
I've seen the listless faces of drivers looking
straight ahead, oblivious to pedestrians ap-
proaching the crosswalk. Some don't even
bother to stop at the intersection while they
make their turns. Others are making love to
their cell phones. Dueling horns. Stereos
blaring. Vehicles blocking the crosswalks.
Can anybody out there see me?
The show goes on almost any evening I try
to cross the street near the fitness center,
which is only a minute's walk from my con-
dominium.
Bright yellow yield-to-pedestrian signs
greet motorists, but the intersection is devoid
of traffic signals. Should it be? Can't say. I'm
not a traffic engineer or a law enforcement of-
ficer. All I know is that I've become scared to
cross the intersection at dark because I can't

see the eyes of the drivers whose paths I in-
tend to cross.
Since I interviewed a St. Petersburg trans-
portation planner, Mike Frederick, for our se-
ries on pedestrian safety, I've tried to take his
advice while I'm walking or jogging.
"Be predictable," he said. "Be where you are
supposed to be so the motorists at least have
a chance of seeing you. Don't cross on red
lights. Cross at the intersections. Cross at

crosswalks. Wear bright clothes at night. This
is the typical stuff that causes 70 percent of
our crashes. Be predictable."
I get it, I think. But I hate being the invisi-
ble pedestrian.
Recently, a yellow walk signal at an inter-
section directed me to cross Indian Rocks
Road.
I took one step onto the street and a mo-


tourist started to accelerate. I stopped, noticing
that he was looking straight ahead. Then he
hit the brakes, half-heartedly lifting a hand in
an attempt at an apology.
A week later, I approached a crosswalk at
nearly the same time a motorist did. He
blocked the crosswalk for several seconds,
even though there were no vehicles crossing
the intersection. As I waited for him to get out
of the way, he cleaned his sunglasses.
Any time now, I thought. Oh, I forgot. I'm
invisible.
A few days ago, I was attempting to use a
marked crosswalk in Dunedin on Alt. U.S. 19
near Edgewater Park. Six to eight vehicles
whizzed by me before a motorcyclist stopped
and let me cross.
As we've reported in the last two weeks,
local governments in Pinellas are taking steps
to address pedestrian safety. St. Petersburg
has installed more than 40 rapid flashing bea-
cons at crosswalks and has plans for more. As
they operate, they resemble a police strobe.
The Florida Department of Transportation
also believes the beacons are effective and
plan to install more of them in the county,
such as along Gulf Boulevard. Agency officials
caution, though, that if the beacons are used
at too many intersections, they will be taken
for granted. Nevertheless, I'm all for seeing
more of the flashing beacons, including the in-
tersection I cross to go work out. I won't walk
to the fitness center at dusk anymore.
My new plan is to drive there, silly as it may
seem to ride in a car for one-tenth of a mile to
avoid walking.
As I let my Hyundai run interference for
me, I'll be ever mindful of pedestrians ap-
proaching the intersections.
I know how it feels to be invisible.

Clinic provides care on
sliding-fee scale
LARGO The Low-Income Pool Primary Care
Clinic at the Pinellas County Health Department
is now offering health services to uninsured,
low-income children and adults on a sliding-fee
scale at its Mid-County center location.
LIP is funded by the state of Florida to "ensure
continued government support for the provision
of health care services to Medicaid, underin-
sured and uninsured populations." For informa-
tion about LIP funding, visit
ahca.myflorida.com/Medicaid/medicaid_re-
form/lip/index. shtml.
The Mid-County center is at 8751 Ulmerton
Road. Appointments are now available. Call
524-4410, ext. 7646.
Fees are based on the declared income of the
child's family or the individual. Adults must be
uninsured or have Medicaid. Incomes should be
at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty
level. For a family of four, 200 percent would be
$44,700 in annual income.
A second LIP clinic for children and young
people 18 and younger only is located at Boca
Ciega High School, 924 58th St. S., Gulfport.

Mease Countryside
offers innovative test
SAFETY HARBOR Mease Countryside Hos-
pital is among the first hospitals in Florida to
offer a test that will help determine whether peo-
ple with certain lung diseases need additional
oxygen and if so, how much when they are
flying on commercial airplanes.
"With the High Altitude Simulation Test, we
can mimic the air someone would breathe on an
airplane," said Robert Stein, M.D., in a press re-
lease. Stein is a pulmonologist and medical di-
rector of respiratory care services at Mease
hospitals. "When someone has this test done,
we are able to carefully measure how they re-
spond to the change in altitude. This tells us if
they need extra oxygen when they fly, and if
they do, exactly how much is needed."
Planes are pressurized to between 8,000 and
10,000 feet, though most flights cruise at be-
tween 30,000 feet and 40,000 feet. At sea level,
there is 21 percent oxygen. At 8,000 to 10,000
feet, there is 15 percent oxygen.
Healthy individuals will compensate for the
drop in oxygen, but people with chronic lung
diseases, such as emphysema, chronic bronchi-
tis, COPD, asthma, or pulmonary fibrosis, or
certain cardiac conditions may need additional
oxygen.
Until now, there was not a reliable way to
know exactly how much more oxygen to give
these patients. But the High Altitude Simulation
Test, or HAST, conducted at the Mease Country-
side Hospital Pulmonary Lab, helps determine
this. It simulates the air a patient would breathe
on an airplane pressurized to 9,000 feet by pro-
viding a mix of 15 percent oxygen with balanced
nitrogen, which has been specially created for
BayCare Health System.
For approximately 20 minutes, a licensed res-
piratory therapist monitors the patient's vital
signs, including oxygen levels, during the test. A
drop in their oxygen saturation rate indicates
that the patient would need more oxygen when
flying on an airplane.
A physician's order is required to take the
High Altitude Simulation Test. People who are
interested should ask their primary care physi-
cian or pulmonologist for information.

sessment, visit www.yourhealthrisk.org/lung.

"Putting this show together has been a labor of love and we are very

ary, their album "Revelator" won the Grammy Award for Best Blues
Album. Then, in July, they dominated the Blues Music Awards where
they won not only Album of the Year, but also took home trophies for
Band of the Year, Gibson Guitar Award (Derek Trucks) and Contempo-
rary Blues Female Artist (Susan Tedeschi).
"Revelator" boasts a collection of blues-dipped rockers and heart-
stirring ballads in which the echoes of so many great traditions flowed
together naturally, blending with an entirely original, modem sensibili-
ty. The album broke into the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 12, bring-
ing both artists to their highest first week sales and charting of their
careers. The band's second album, "Everybody's Talkin'," is a double
live disc recorded on the band's fall tour last year. Tedeschi Trucks
Band is an 11-member ensemble. In addition to Susan Tedeschi and
Derek Trucks, the band includes harmony singers Mike Mattison and
Mark Rivers, brothers Oteil Burbridge and Kofi Burbridge, drummers

Kansas ... plus orchestra

Music legend to play REH as part of its Rock Symphony Concert series


By LEE CLARK ZUMPE

CLEARWATER Kansas America's most successful progressive
rock band is set to make its Ruth Eckerd Hall debut with a spell-
binding show featuring a rock symphony and laser light spectacular.
Kansas will perform Saturday, Jan. 19, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall,
1111 McMullen Booth Road.
Tickets start at $49. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall
.com.
The story of Kansas began more than four decades ago when a
group of musicians formed a progressive rock group in their home-
town, Topeka, Kan. Vocalists Lynn Meredith and Joel Warne, key-
boardist Don Montre, keyboardist Dan Wright, and saxophonist Larry
Baker soon joined the founders Dave Hope, Phil Ehart and Kerry Liv-
gren. Some of the musicians had already performed together in a band
called White Clover.
After a number of lineup changes, in 1973 Kansas signed with Don
Kirshner's eponymous label and released their debut album "Kansas"
in 1974. Band members now included original founding members
Ehart on drums and percussion, Hope on bass and vocals and Livgren
on guitars, keyboards, synthesizers and vocals. Added to the mix were
Robby Steinhardt on violin and vocals, Rich Williams on guitars and
Steve Walsh on keyboards, synthesizers, percussion and vocals.
This lineup remained the same through seven studio albums and
endless touring in the 1970s. Albums during this period included
"Kansas" (1974), "Song for America" (1975), "Masque" (1975), "Left-
overture" (1976), "Point of Know Return" (1977), "Monolith" (1979) and
"Audio-Visions" (1980). Kansas steadily developed a cult following
through 1975, and finally achieved chart success with the release of

"Leftoverture" which featured the hit single "Carry On Wayward Son."
The album reached No. 5 on Billboard's pop album chart. The follow-
up, 1977's "Point of Know Return" peaked even higher, at No. 4. That
album produced the band's best-known hit, "Dust in the Wind."

Then and now
One could make a valid argument by saying that Kansas introduced
two recognizable phrases to rock and roll parlance: "air guitar" and
"arena rock."
During the '70s and '80s, Kansas put together a string of gold and
platinum-certified hit albums, sold out tours, and penned some of
classic rock's most instantly recognizable and enduring tunes. While it
has been nearly 40 years since the group's self-titled debut in 1974,
today the band is as strong as it ever was. Featuring singer/key-
boardist Steve Walsh, guitarist Rich Williams, violinist David Ragsdale,
bassist Billy Greer, and drummer Phil Ehart, Kansas released its fifth
live album, 'There's No Place Like Home," on CD and DVD in 2009.
The DVD charted at No. 5 on the Billboard Music DVD chart the week
of its release.
In a press release issued by Chipster PR & Consulting Inc., Ehart
unveils several reasons as to why Kansas continues to flourish.
"We have the best fans in the world," Ehart said. 'Their responses
are always solid, insightful ... and they will tell you what they think."
The classic songs Kansas recorded have shown that they hold up
fine, attracting new generations of fans.
"New fans are discovering us every day, thanks to video games,
movies and TV shows that use our music," Williams said. "[The songs]
have retained a relevance through the years that only a small percent-
age of recordings do."

Pink Floyd cover group performs at Largo Cultural Center


LARGO The Machine, considered by many to be
America's best live Pink Floyd show, will perform
Saturday, Jan. 19, 8 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center,
105 Central Park Drive.
Tickets start at $29.50. Add $5 to the price for
tickets purchased at the door. For tickets and infor-
mation, call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com.
The Machine will return to the Tampa Bay area
with a new lineup. The band last played Largo Cul-
tural Center in 2009.
The Machine currently includes founding mem-
ber Tahrah Cohen on drums with long time stage
mates Ryan Ball (guitar, vocals) and Scott Chasolen
(keys, vocals) with new member, Adam Minkoff
(bass, lead vocals).
Minkoff joined the band this month, taking over
lead vocals and bass, while Ball gracefully slides
across the stage to lead guitar. Minkoff will help the
band as it continues to perpetuate Pink Floyd's
legacy through a multi-dimensional approach. For
more than 24 years, The Machine has been faithful-
ly re-creating the timeless music of Pink Floyd.
The Machine makes significant use of expanded
theatrical elements, mirroring Pink Floyd's elaborate
stage displays such as spectacular state-of-the-art
lighting, multimedia accompaniments, and impec-
cable sound. The result is strikingly faithful inter-
pretations giving the band a reputation for
excellence and creating an intimate connection with
their loyal audience.


The New York based band plays a mix of Pink
Floyd's 16-album repertoire, resulting in a blend of
musical styles that span the band's career. On occa-
sion the band performs Pink Floyd albums in their
entirety, including "Dark Side of The Moon" and
'The Wall."
The Machine has toured North and Central Amer-
ica as well as Europe and Asia, selling out clubs
and theaters along the way. They have performed at
music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend and
Germany's Rock of Ages. In the last couple of years,
the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Sympho-
ny Orchestra, Delaware Symphony Orchestra, San
Diego Symphony Orchestra and Richmond Sym-
phony Orchestra have backed the band at special
concert events.
The Machine has released several CDs and DVDs
of performances, capturing their intense live show.
'Two Nights at the Keswick," from the band's 2003
performances, is a live concert CD and DVD. 'The
Machine Unplugged" is an acoustic performance
recorded at B.B. King's in New York City. The band
also released "Live in Amsterdam," a recording of a
2006 concert, on DVD.
The band's current release is "The Machine: Sym-
phonic Side of the Moon," a recording of a live per-
formance of "Dark Side Of The Moon" with a
symphony orchestra.

BLUES, from page 1 B

writer Joe Louis Walker, touring in support of his Alligator Records
debut, "Hellfire," will perform at the event.
Walker has been releasing groundbreaking music since 1986 and
has toured and continues to tour worldwide. He has won four
Blues Music Awards and has been nominated for 48 more. Walker
was recently nominated for four 2013 Blues Music Awards, includ-
ing B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, Contemporary Blues Album
Of The Year for "Hellfire," Contemporary Blues Male Artist Of The
Year and Gibson Guitar Guitarist Of The Year.
Walker also has recorded as a guest with some of the blues
world's best-known artists, including appearances on Grammy-win-
ning records by B.B. King and James Cotton. He and his band re-
cently appeared on TBS's "Conan" to perform the song "Ride All
Night" from "Hellfire."
Walker was born in San Francisco in 1949. His parents were both
from the South and they brought their love of blues with them when
they headed west. His dad played blues piano, and his mom played
B.B. King records. Walker picked up the guitar as a child, and by
the time he was 16 was regularly backing touring blues artists
rolling through town. San Francisco's music scene was quickly be-
coming a melting pot of blues, jazz and psychedelic rock, and Walker
was right in the center of it.
As a 16-year-old, Walker was the house guitarist at San Francis-
co's famed musical playground, The Matrix, where he played with or
opened shows for everyone from Lightnin' Hopkins to Jimi Hendrix
to Thelonious Monk. The blues legends Walker accompanied shared
not only musical knowledge but also their personal wisdom. Fred
McDowell, Ike Turner, Albert King, Freddy King, Robert Jr. Lock-
wood, Lightnin' Hopkins and many others taught, fed and chastised
the youngster.
From 1975 to 1985, Walker performed nothing but gospel music,
playing and singing as a member of The Spiritual Corinthians. In
1986, after Walker returned to playing the blues, Hightone Records
released his debut CD, "Cold Is The Night." Firmly rooted in blues,
gospel, R&B and rock, the album caught the attention of music fans
around the country.
With each subsequent release, Walker's audience continues to
grow, as his touring schedule continues to expand. He's played
major European festivals, including Northsea Jazz Festival, Glaston-
bury, Notodden and Montreux, as well as festivals in Japan, Aus-
tralia, Taiwan, Ireland, Turkey and Brazil.
Mac Rebennack is better known as Dr. John, the living embodi-
ment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans.
His roots can be traced back to the 1950s when he wrote and
played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the
famed Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art
Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. Following a gun incident that in-
jured his left ring finger, Dr. John transitioned to organ and piano.

By the 1960s, he had relocated to Los Angeles and was making a
name for himself as a session musician, playing on records by
Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin, Frank Zappa and
the Mothers of Invention and The Rolling Stones.
Around the same time, he launched his solo career, developing the
charismatic persona of Dr. John The Nite Tripper. Adorned with
voodoo charms and regalia, a legend was born with his break-
through 1968 album "Gris-gris," which established his unique blend
of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm and blues, psychedelic rock and
Creole roots.
Dr. John's career highlights include the masterful album "Sun,
Moon and Herbs" in 1971 and 1973's "In The Right Place." The latter
included the chart hits "Right Place Wrong Time" and "Such A
Night."
Dr. John has earned a number of Grammy Award wins and, in
March 2011, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In
2012, he released a new album "Locked Down," produced by Dan
Auerbach of The Black Keys. Dr. John continues to write, arrange,
produce and interpret with a passion that has yet to wane. He con-
tinues to dazzle and delight audiences across the globe touring con-
sistently.
American blues guitarist, singer and songwriter Walter Trout still
recalls the day in 1965 when his brother brought the first album by
the Paul Butterfield Blues Band into his family's New Jersey home.
The event set Trout on a musical path: The magic of the twin guitars
of Michael Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, and Butterfield's gut-deep
harmonica and vocal performances ensnared him.
Trout's practical schooling in blues started when he arrived in Los
Angeles in 1973 and got gigs behind John Lee Hooker, Big Mama
Thornton, Finis Tasby, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulsom, Percy May-
field and Joe Tex. In 1981, he joined the remaining original members
of Canned Heat. Then, beginning in 1984, Trout began his tenure
with British blues giant John Mayall. Trout became part of the
Bluesbreakers' lineage of great guitarists along with Eric Clapton,
Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Sharing six-string duties with Coco
Montoya in Mayall's band, Trout helped to create a flexible guitar dy-
namic that sparked a renaissance for the Bluesbreakers.
In 1989, Trout established his own group, cutting his debut
album "Life In the Jungle," which launched him into the limelight in
Europe. In 1998, his eponymous album ensured that he would re-
main a fixture in the American blues-rock scene for the foreseeable
future.
Trout's passionate "Blues for the Modem Daze," released in 2012,
cuts right to the core of his art and his heart. His 21st album re-
turns the contemporary guitar legend to his hard-core blues roots
and finds his songwriting at a creative and personal zenith.
Sonny Landreth, an American blues musician from southwest
Louisiana, is best known as a slide guitar player.
His influences include Chet Atkins, Robert Johnson, Wes Mont-
gomery, Jimi Hendrix, Elmore James and Ry Cooder. Landreth re-
cently released his 11th album, the evocatively title "Elemental
Journey." The CD is something very different from anything the
Louisiana slide wizard has recorded previously. Released on his own
Landfall label, the new CD is the artist's first all-instrumental effort
and his most adventurous work to date.
"From day one on the guitar, many genres of music have had an
impact on me," said Landreth in a press release. "For these record-
ings, I drew from some of those influences that I hadn't gone to on
previous albums with my vocals. Trading off the lyrics this time, I fo-
cused solely on the instrumental side and all this music poured out.
Then I asked some extraordinary musicians to help me layer the
tracks in hopes of inspiring a lot of imagery for the listeners."
Also highlighting the inaugural bill for the festival are Jaimoe's
Jasssz Band; The Wood Brothers, featuring Chris from Modeski,
Martin and Wood and his well-known singer/songwriter brother
Oliver; award-winning British blues guitarist Matt Schofield; the
driving force of urban funk, Big Sam's Funky Nation; Florida guitar
favorite Bobby Lee Rodgers; and the no-frills blend of Chicago,
Texas, and Delta blues of guitarist Sean Chambers.
Attendees may bring umbrellas, blankets, low profile lawn chairs,
one sealed bottle of water per guest. Personal cameras will be per-
mitted; however, flash photography, video and removable lens cam-
eras are not permitted without venue approval. All small bags,
purses, diaper bags and fanny packs will be inspected before they
will be permitted onto the festival grounds.
Items that will not be permitted at Vinoy Park include weapons of
any kind, glass or metal containers, laser pointers, alcoholic bever-
ages, rollerskates/blades, bikes, scooters and skateboards, lawn
darts, air horns, megaphones, illegal drugs, narcotics, drug para-
phernalia, fireworks or explosives of any kind and carts or tents.

Hard Rock Rising gives bands a chance at stardom


TAMPA Hard Rock International continues its commitment to
emerging musicians of tomorrow with this year's Hard Rock Rising,
the world's largest and most far-reaching battle of the bands competi-
tion.
Hard Rock Rising supports the musical careers of aspiring artists
around the globe by giving one local band the opportunity of a lifetime
to participate in a world tour at Hard Rock Cafe locations, film a music
video, record an album with Hard Rock Records and receive $10,000
in new gear.
"Hard Rock is eager to uncover another pool of budding talent and
provide them with an international stage to showcase their talents,"
said John Kirkpatrick in a press release. Kirkpatrick is head of Music
and Artist Relations for Hard Rock International. "More than 12,000
bands entered Hard Rock Rising and nearly 1 million votes were cast
by fans around the globe in 2012. We hope the continued success of
this program will catapult an emerging band to success and introduce
their sound to Hard Rock's worldwide audience."


Hard Rock, in partnership with online music services company Re-
verbNation, is hosting open registration for bands wishing to partici-
pate in the global battle through Monday, Jan. 21.
This will be the second year that Hard Rock has partnered with Re-
verbNation.
'The influence of Hard Rock's iconic brand fused with ReverbNa-
tion's extensive network of more than 2.4 million artists in 250 coun-
tries worldwide is a match made in rock 'n' roll heaven," said Mike
Doernberg, CEO and co-founder of ReverbNation. 'We're looking for-
ward to once again helping to create breaks for aspiring artists around
the globe."
To register, future rock stars can visit one of 96 participating Hard
Rock Cafe Facebook pages including Tampa. Following open registra-
tion, fans decide who moves on to the live performance phase of the
program and can vote on any Hard Rock's city-specific, Facebook page
by downloading free tracks from bands of their choice.
To register and see full rules, visit www.facebook.com/HardRock-


CafeTampa.
After fans choose their favorites, participating Hard Rock Cafe loca-
tions around the world will host a series of live competitions featuring
these local bands. One winner will be selected from each location by a
panel of local industry judges. Selected local winners will be narrowed
down to the top 25 bands worldwide via a second round of fan voting
on participating Hard Rock Facebook pages. Once the top 25 are de-
termined, a panel of music industry professionals; including Steven
Van Zandt of the E Street Band, Live Nation Senior Vice President of
Music Toby Leighton-Pope, and Hard Rock Records' Artist Relations
Executives John Kirkpatrick, James Buell and Blake Smith; will select
the grand prize winner and two runner up bands.
Following an exhilarating competition process the grand prize win-
ner will play a world tour in cities including Sydney, Tokyo, Hong
Kong, London, Chicago and Honolulu, arranged by Hard Rock Interna-
tional; record an album with Hard Rock Records; shoot a music video;
and receive new music equipment.
