SVEC rebrands, changes name By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE As of July 1, Seminole Vocational Education Center will have a new name. In an effort to rebrand its image and attract new students, the school will now be called the Career Academies of Seminole. The word vocational has a negative connotation, said Barbara Clare, the centers director. A lot of people in the community think we only serve at-risk students. But theres no truth in this assumption, she said. The school, which offers students from Osceola, Seminole and Largo high schools an alternative, hands-on educational experience, actually draws students from across the spectrum, from the highest achieving to the lowest achieving. We mirror the populations at the high schools, she said. Currently, SVEC, which sits on 47 mostly undeveloped acres, has about 350 and 400 students attending its programs on a part-time basis. But in the past, the center has served as many as 900 students, said Jim Gill, guidance counselor. Clare hopes the name change will catch the attention of new students and increase the number taking advantage of the centers diverse programs. They hope to increase the number of students to about 500 at first, but said the current staff can handle about 700 students. SVEC first opened in 1961, as the Largo-Seminole Agriculture Center. In those early years it was called Ag Farm by students, staff and local residents. In the late 1970s, as the center expanded its programs, moving beyond its agricultural beginnings, the name was changed to the Seminole Vocational Education Center. It no longer was just an agricultural center, Clare said. They had brought in other career and technical programs.Seminole council discusses pageant, holiday parade By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Citing safety concerns, the City Council discussed the fate of the Bright Before Your Eyes holiday parade at its June 11 workshop session. For the past eight years, the parade has been an annual effort co-sponsored by the city of Seminole and the Seminole Chamber of Commerce. Typically, its been held as an evening event, but City Manager Frank Edmunds said the administration had significant safety concerns following this past Decembers parade. It was foggy and misty, he said, reducing visibility for both those participating in the parade and those viewing it. Mayor Leslie Waters added, It was frightening. The city found that at an event that required all of entries to be lit, there were entrants with no lights at all or who were minimally lit. Waters questioned whether the city might want to move the parade from nighttime to late afternoon, when there might still be some light from dusk. Edmunds said that administration from the city met with members of the Chamber of Commerce to review safety concerns following this past parade and came up with a list of guidelines to mitigate safety issues. Guidelines include that all vehicles must be lit on all sides and those walking in the parade must somehow be illuminated, as well. We all felt very strongly that were just inviting a very dangerous condition without taking action, he said. While Edmunds suggested casual enforcement of these guidelines during the first year theyre in place, Mayor Waters said there was no reason to not fully enforce them immediately. So members of the Recreation Department will meet with every entrant to ensure they meet the guidelines. Mayor Waters also suggested re-titling the parade to include the words Christmas Parade or Holiday Parade. The council leaned towards calling it Bright Before Your Eyes: A Holiday Parade. Its done at the end of November, before Christmas, and in between Thanksgiving, running into Hanukkah, running into several different holidays that can celebrate, said Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn. At the same workshop, Mayor Waters also suggested the creation of a Miss Seminole Pow Wow competition. There was a Miss Seminole for many years, she said. But the coordinator [Henny Hlas] retired and nobody picked it up. The former Miss Seminole pageant was a franchised activity associated with the Miss America program, giving contestants the opportunity to move on to statewide and national competitions. This new Miss Seminole Pow Wow would be a local effort that wont qualify contestants for competition elsewhere, she said. I think its a great idea, Barnhorn said. Councilor Chris Burke agreed. I like it, he said. I like the idea But there should be a Mr. as well, get the guys involved, not just the ladies. Waters said such an event would support the betterment of Seminole and the betterment of [its] young men and women. The question is: Who would be in charge of such a large endeavor? I think it has a place, but I do realize its a huge organization and coordination, Waters said. But maybe theres an organization in Seminole that would take it on as part of its major commitment to the community. Some of the local organizations suggested during the brainstorming session were the Seminole Junior Womens Club, the Seminole Womens Club, the Rotary Club of Seminole and the Seminole Civitan Club. Barnhorn suggested forming a committee for the event, similar to the committee that organizes Music in the Park, and Councilor Jim Quinn suggested the council drop it in the lap of the area high schools. Candidates could be based on academics, Quinn said. Mayor Waters said she hopes a group or individual in the community will step up to help take on the responsibility. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE At its June 11 meeting, the City Council unanimously voted in favor of Resolution 06-2013, establishing a set of seven-year goals for Seminole. The 10 final goals selected were culled from 33 suggested individual goals that the councilors brought to the councils April 20 annual workshop. They were then discussed further at the councils May 14 workshop meeting. The goals, to be completed over a seven-year period between 2013 and 2019, are attainable through the existing Penny for Pinellas infrastructure funding. Penny for Pinellas is a 1 percent sales tax that is used to fund capital improvement projects throughout the county. At the May 14 meeting, City Manager Frank Edmunds said around $3.5 million in such funds are available to Seminole for these goals, and indicated that, if necessary, the city can also use grant money, year-end fund balances, and money raised by local civic and community groups to make up the difference. Through these goals, the City Council plans to: Renovate the former City Hall at Seminole City Park into a multi-use facility that will include rental space, the Seminole Historical Society Museum and storage space. Work with a consultant to develop a community brand. Design and construct Waterfront Park. Establish an annual city government Citizens Academy. Expand the use of technology by the city, particularly by developing an interactive website that would allow residents to register for events, fill out permit forms and make payments. Create a Community Garden program. Put into place policies that would encourage more recycling by both residents and commercial businesses. Establish policies to encourage the use of solar power. Encourage more public art. Discuss and establish a set annexation policy.The council also approved Resolution 05-2013, which See COUNCIL, page 4APhoto courtesy of SEMINOLE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CENTER/CAREER ACADEMIES OF SEMINOLEStudent Ryan Dakota Johnston is hard at work in his Engineering Solutions class at Seminole Vocational Education Center, which will be renamed Career Academies of Seminole beginning July 1.

4A Seminole Beacon, June 20, 2013 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Fee changes are part of Pinellas Countys strategy to balance the budget for fiscal year 2013-14. The changes follow the commissions strategic plan to align the beneficiary of a service to the funding level for that service, according to the staff report. In other words, the cost of some services should be paid by the user. The amount of the fee is set taking into consideration: efficiency, equity, revenue adequacy and administrative burden, staff said. Office of Management and Budget Director Eric Naughton presented highlights of the proposed changes during a budget information session June 6. If approved, the new fees could generate an estimated $15,000 for the general fund budget. Changes to existing fees could generate an additional $60,000. New fees include a $25 rental fee for the use of a trap from Animal Services, which would generate an estimated $7,500. Communications proposes to charge a $100 fee per hour plus overtime for use of studio space, which could bring in as much as $4,000. Parks and Recreation wants to add a new campground cancellation fee of $30 to $40.50, which could generate $3,670 in new revenue. Staff estimated a minimal amount of new money from a $360 fee for some small asbestos removal projects. New technology user fees for building and development review services could bring in an estimated $40,000. However, proposed building fee reductions could take away as much as $51,000. The combination of new fees and reductions would mean $11,000 less revenue next year.Animal ServicesAnimal Services proposes a number of changes to existing fees including raising the impoundment fee for sterilized dogs from $50 to $60 and the fee for non-sterilized dogs from $80 to $100. If approved, the cost of spaying and neutering would increase by $10 with the spay fee for dogs going from $45 to $55 and the spay fee for cats increasing from $35 to $45. The neuter fee for dogs would go up from $35 to $45 and the neuter fee for cats from $25 to $35. Adoption fees also are on the proposed fee increase list. Adoption fees for a dog age 4 months or younger and small breed dogs that weigh 25 pounds or less could go up from $40 to $75. The cost of dangerous dog registration will remain the same, but staff recommends decreasing the number of annual inspections from two to one. The combination of fee increases and service changes could provide Animal Services with nearly $60,000 in additional monies.Health departmentProposed new fees for the Health Department, which is a state fund, account for an estimated $73,000 in revenue. Those fees include a $75 annual permit for clients that operate multiple food service operations at the same location. Staff estimates an additional $1,125 from that new fee. A new $5 fingerprinting fee to cover administrative costs of processing electronic fingerprint records for childcare homes and centers is expected to bring in $8,145. A $10 administrative fee for TB blood testing would generate an estimated $4,000. A fee of $30 per visit for dental care for low-income children under age 21 without dental insurance could raise an estimated $42,000 for the health department budget. Another new fee of $10 per maternity office visit could raise $18,000 and $5 a visit per client for maternity group visits could generate an additional $6,900.Sunstar ambulance feesIf the commission approves staff recommendations, ambulance fees also would increase, generating an estimated $392,490. The proposed fee increase for Sunstar ambulance transports and services include: Advanced life support from $560.32 to $577.69 Advance life support 2 from $665.86 to $686.50 Critical care transport from $125.43 to $129.32 Mileage per loaded mile from $12.66 to $13.05 Staff also proposes raising the annual membership fee for the Sunstar ambulance program from $72.84 to $91.05 for families and $46.82 to $58.53 for the single plan. Increased membership cost would bring in an estimated $75,150. Combined fee changes for Sunstar could generate an estimated $467,640.Water and sewer ratesA bit of good news came from the June 6 meeting. The schedule of rate increases for water and sewer approved in 2011 is still adequate to support planned expenditures, according to staff from the Department of Environment and Infrastructure. The four-year rate increase plan includes the declining demand from wholesale customers in Clearwater, Oldsmar and Tarpon Springs due to those municipalities developing their own water supplies. No significant increase is expected from Tampa Bay Water for the coming year. No significant increases are expected for the countys Utility operations, according to Steve Carroll, DEIs director of finance. As approved in 2011, there will be no increase in the cost of water in 2014 or 2015; however, the base rate charge will go up from $4.35 a month to $5.35 next year and increase by another dollar in 2015. Wholesale customers will see an annual 4 percent increase with the volumetric rate increasing from $3.56 to $3.70 next year and to $3.85 in 2015. The volumetric rate per 1,000 gallons for sewer will increase from $4.31 to $4.57 in 2014 and to $4.84 in 2015. The base rate is going up from $11.80 to $12.51 and will jump to $13.26 in 2015. Wholesale volumetric rate per 1,000 gallons will increase from $3.52 to $3.83 next year and $4.18 in 2015. The availability fee for reclaimed water will remain at $7; but the monthly user fee will increase by a dollar each year through 2015, going from $10 to $11 and then $12. The user fee per 1,000 gallons is going up from 80 cents to 88 cents and then to 96 cents in 2015. Residents who receive reclaimed water and do not pay an availability charge, will see their monthly user fee increase by a dollar a year, going from $16 in 2013 to $17 in 2015 and $18 in 2015. The user fee per 1,000 gallons will increase the same amount as that paid by customers without an availability fee. Utilities is currently looking at undertaking an in-depth review of rate changes to see if there is an alternative to annual rate increases, Carroll said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the review is an effort to look at the long-term global perspective and not assume we can raise rates ad nauseam. We may not find anything new, LaSala said. But were looking at it. LaSala is scheduled to present his proposed budget on July 9. Commissioners will consider the fees as they discuss the budget millage rates for next year. Fees are not final until the budget and millage rates are approved at a second public hearing on Sept. 17. For more information on the budget, visit www.pinellascounty .org/budget.

Rehabilitated manatees releasedThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and partners released two rehabilitated manatees rescued during the recent red tide bloom June 13 in Boca Grande in southwest Florida. These are the first rescued manatees affected by the recent red tide to be released. Through extensive response efforts, the commission and partners rescued 16 manatees suffering from the effects of a red tide bloom that was documented from late last September to April. Fifteen manatees survived after they were initially taken to Tampas Lowry Park Zoo for treatment. Once rescued manatees are rehabilitated, marine mammal researchers aim to release them near their rescue location, due to the manatees familiarity with the area. As harmful effects of the recent bloom have waned, FWC biologists have determined these rehabilitated manatees can now be released safely. More manatee releases are planned in the next two months. The larger male released June 13 was the first rescued suffering from red tide effects during the recent bloom in October. That manatee was moved from the zoo to SeaWorld Orlando earlier this year for care until its release to ensure the zoo had space for critical care cases. The FWC and partners rescued the smaller female manatee in March, and it remained at the zoo until the June 13 release. Red tide is the preliminary cause of death for 270 manatees in 2013, a single-year record. Manatees are mainly exposed to the red tide toxin through ingestion of food such as seagrass with accumulated toxin levels. Citizen observers aid response efforts. The public is asked to report distressed or dead manatees by calling the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404FWCC (3922), dialing #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone, or texting Tip@MyFWC.com.Library to hold book saleSAFETY HARBOR The Friends of the Safety Harbor Library will hold a book sale on Saturday, June 22, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the library at 101 Second St. N.

Imagine being taken away from your home, not knowing where you will go, leaving behind your favorite things. Now, imagine this through the eyes of a child. There are more than 3,500 dependent children in Pinellas and Pasco counties due to child abuse, neglect or abandonment. Many of these children will need to live in a temporary foster home, but Eckerd Community Alternatives cannot meet the growing need without the help of the community. Foster parents need to be at least 21 years old, have appropriate housing and be able to pass a background screening. You can be single or married, have a family of your own or be an emptynester. Applicants will need to complete a home study and 30 hours of special training. You must have adequate space and be able to provide for your family now. Although you will receive financial assistance to help care for the child, you cannot rely on this to pay your bills. For more information on becoming a foster parent, call the Eckerd Recruitment Line at 866-2330790.County staff presents proposed fee changes for 2013-14 fiscal year Jotos Pizza in Seminole, 13050 Park Blvd., presented a check for $28,154 to All Childrens Hospital at its 30th annual telethon on June 2. The donation, made in memory of Rachel Marie Thrower, was raised at Jotos 10th annual Dough for Kids Golf Classic. To date, Jotos has raised over $300,000 for ACH. Pictured is the Jotos team, including Jodi Whitcomb (front left) and Tori Thrower (front right) with the check donated to ACH. Dough for Kids COUNCIL, from page 1Aestablishes a policy to fill City Council advisory committee vacancies in the city. The goal was for the process to be more open and transparent. If there is a vacancy on any committee, the position must be advertised in the local newspaper and other media outlets. The department director, after reviewing all applications, will then discuss the applicants with the current committee members and make a recommendation to Edmunds. The applicants recommended will have the opportunity to discuss their interest in the position at a City Council workshop session. If the council approves of an applicant, then they will be appointed at the next council meeting.In addition to horticulture and veterinary science, the center began to offer even more diverse programs: carpentry, construction, electricity. The offerings have expanded even more in recent years, reflecting the careers that are becoming more popular and necessary in our everchanging world. Now, the school has programs in commercial and digital arts, energy solutions, and environmental technology. We offer something unique here that no one else does. There arent too many schools even in Florida that offer what we do, Clare said. But we need to revitalize what we do, she added. In many ways, the center better prepares its students for the real world than the traditional high school experience, Gill said. The programs provide relevant job readiness skills and prepare students for employment. Several of the programs allow students to earn industry recognized certification and others, such as the veterinary program, are affiliated with St. Petersburg College and earn students college credit hours. Its just very real-world, Gill said. If a kid comes here to explore a possible career, theyll at least have left here with the skills to make them a more productive adult. The name change, which was approved by the Pinellas County School District in February, takes effect July 1 just in time for the districts new fiscal year. Clare said the center will ramp up recruitment at Osceola, Seminole and Largo high schools once the school year starts up again in August, and theyll plan a Back to School Night open to the community in the fall.

For both Stetsky and his classmates, the day marked the culmination of years of hard work as they furthered their education. But unlike the other graduates, Stetskys degree is more than 50 years in the making. Stetsky, 77, a Seminole resident and New York native, attended City College in the 1950s, but didnt make it past his first year there. Still, it didnt stop Stetsky from a long career working for various companies in their accounting departments. I was a numbers cruncher, he said. I just didnt have the degree. Most recently, he worked in the budgeting department for Hillsborough County before retiring in 2007. Stetsky had always been interested in writing, and even once had a short piece he wrote featured on the NPR program All Things Considered and published letters to the editor in local newspapers, he said. So in 2008, he signed up for a writing class at SPC to keep busy in retirement. I didnt want to just sit around and watch the boob tube, he said. Im an advocate of keeping the mind busy. Its mental calisthenics. He filled out the required paperwork to take the creative writing course, and checked the box indicating that he would be a non-matriculated student. But his wife, Joyce Stetsky, had other ideas for her husband. I told him, What are you? Stupid? Go get your degree, she said. If youre taking the course, you might as well get the credit. The couple, who moved to Seminole about 30 years ago, met in the Bronx as teens in the 1950s, when they attended City College. Both dropped out before earning their degrees. Richard Stetsky toyed with the idea of going back to college, but work and family life always got in the way. But I told him, What better time than now? his wife said. With his wifes love and support, Stetsky contacted the college about changing his status to matriculated and enrolled in SPCs online bachelor of applied science program in sustainability management. I was surprised that they actually transferred some of my credits [from City College], he said. If he were able to, he would have preferred to major in political science. But Stetsky is afflicted with hereditary spastic paraplegia, which hinders his mobility and requires him to use a walker. Online courses made more sense for me, he said. And sustainability management was the least objectionable and closest to political science in my mind. I always described [my father] as a frustrated political analyst just waiting to be discovered for his quick wit and attacking the current situation with actionable solutions, said his daughter, Sharon Stetsky. So when he started to engage himself in writing courses, I thought it was a wonderful outlet for him to express himself and be recognized for his thoughts and opinions on various topics. As an online student, Stetsky navigated a whole new world, learning to communicate via Skype and create PowerPoint presentations. I didnt know a whole lot when I started, he said, but I feel very comfortable with the computer now. And the former C and D student began to earn A grades. Stetskys next step is American Public University. Hell begin a masters program in political science at the online college this fall. Were all so proud of him, said Joyce Stetsky. I actually took his decision to go back to college with a grain of salt, because in our family it was never if you go to college, but when you go to college, said Stetskys daughter Lynne Lovinger. So it just took [my father] a little longer than the rest of us. Pictured are this years recipients of scholarships from the Lake Seminole Square Scholarship Fund.

According to the sheriffs report, the incident took place Monday, June 10, about 12:37 a.m. at the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street North and Fourth Avenue North. Deputy Nicholas Forgione was driving his marked patrol car northbound on Fourth Avenue North, responding to an emergency call for service. Forgione activated his emergency lights prior to approaching the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street and continued driving through the intersection. As Forgione drove through the intersection, the front passenger side of his marked cruiser struck the front driver side of the Ford Explorer that was traveling westbound on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street. The driver of the Ford Explorer, Jade Palanjay, 18, of Seminole was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The three passengers of the Ford Explorer and Deputy Forgione were not injured. Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor in the crash. The investigation continues.Standoff ends in arrest of armed burglarCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a 34-year-old male transient June 11 on one count of armed robbery. David Shaffer was arrested about 8 a.m. at the Americas Best Value Inn, 28596 U.S. 19 Clearwater. He is accused of burglarizing a Yellow Cab that was parked at the Mini Storage located at 28420 U.S. 19. According to a report from the sheriffs office, Robert Stipins, 34, of Clearwater reported that a man broke into his cab about 1 a.m. Stipins said he saw the man leaving the mini storage wearing his backpack. He told the dispatcher that the backpack contained a 45-caliber handgun. Stipins also said he had attempted to approach the suspect, who reportedly said he would shoot him if he came close. Stipins followed the man to room 128 at the inn. When deputies arrived at the hotel and attempted to make contact with the suspect, later identified as Shaffer, he refused to come out of the hotel room. Shaffer told deputies he had a gun and made threats to harm deputies if they tried to enter his hotel room. Deputies also learned there was a female inside the hotel room with the suspect. At about 4:30 a.m., the Sheriffs SWAT team and negotiator response team arrived and set up a perimeter around the hotel. They called Shaffer on the phone and he allowed them to speak with his girlfriend, Kristi Orestas, 22, of Clearwater, who said she was safe. After about an hour of negotiations, Shaffer surrendered to deputies peacefully. He was taken into custody without incident about 8 a.m. and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. According to his arrest report, he was charged with armed robbery, burglary and grand theft. Bond was set at $160,000. Shaffer was subsequently charged with introducing/possession of contraband in a county detention facility and felon in possession of a weapon. His bonds now total $175,000.Woman found dead in Indian Rocks BeachINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Pinellas County sheriffs deputies dont suspect foul play in the death of an Indian Rocks Beach woman. Relatives found the body of Penelope A. Lacy, 58, in the backyard behind her home on Beach Trail about 10:15 a.m. June 15. Pinellas Suncoast Fire & Rescue responded and pronounced her dead. Deputies said the death does not appear to be suspicious in nature. The Medical Examiners Office will determine cause and manner of death.

Monthly trash cleanups involving some residents from Safe Harbor have been initiated in this area, according to a press release from the Sheriffs Office, but a larger scale cleanup was needed.Transit ridership continues record-setting paceST. PETERSBURG Bus riders in Pinellas County boarded Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority vehicles more frequently last month than in any May in agency history. Preliminary figures show that passengers boarded PSTA buses 1.21 million times last month, which makes for a 1 percent increase over the previous record set in 2012 and a 2 percent jump over April 2013. Agency leaders said riders have now set all-time monthly records in 18 of the past 19 months and the increasing ridership has led to standing-room-only buses along many PSTA routes throughout the day. To help meet the constantly increasing demand for transit in Pinellas County, the PSTA Board of Directors and the County Commission have agreed to place a one-cent transportation sales tax initiative on the November 2014 ballot. If approved by voters, the new funding would eliminate the current property tax levied for PSTA and still allow the agency to significantly increase bus service within a few years. Those increases would include more frequent buses that run throughout longer periods of the day, as well as new routes in areas not currently served by transit.

PETERSBURG Work crews completed a bypass of a failed 42-inch force sewer main June 14, allowing permanent repairs to begin. The main force at Pinellas County Utilities South Cross Bayou Water Reclamation facility failed June 13. Raw sewage flowed into the plants stormwater basin and overflowed into Joes Creek. The flow of sewage has since been contained. Residents should avoid swimming or other recreational use of Joes Creek until further notice. Sheriffs Office fires detention deputy By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri fired a 13-year veteran June 14 for violation of various general orders and policies, including the use of excessive force. Detention Deputy Elizabeth Kretzer, 40, an employee since Oct. 4, 1999, also reportedly falsified information on her report of the incident, which occurred on Dec. 23, 2012 at the county jail. Internal Affairs Investigators said Kretzer slapped an unidentified inmate on the side of the head and then reported that the inmate grabbed her, which was untrue. Kretzer also misrepresented and omitted facts in her report, including the use of force. The incident started when a female inmate returned to the meal line to get an extra breakfast tray. Kretzer told the inmate to return the tray, which she did. Kretzer reported that she asked the inmate to leave the housing unit so she could explain to her the feeding process. However, recordings from the time of the incident do not match Kretzers report. Instead, they show that Kretzer improperly engaged in a verbal argument and that she had asked the inmate to leave the housing unit because the inmate had flipped her off. After exiting the housing unit into the vestibule, Kretzer improperly challenged her to repeat the gesture. The inmate accepted the challenge, according to the investigators report. Investigators said Kretzer then clutched the shoulder of the inmates sweatshirt and pulled her out of the vestibule, through the corridor and into a visitation room.The action was done with sufficient force to cause the inmate to bounce off the detention deputys body, the report said. While in the visitation room, Kretzer struck the inmate across the side of her head with her hand; and then falsely claimed in her report that the inmate grabbed her shirt prompting her to slap the inmate in order to create distance from her.Investigators concluded, The touching of the inmate and use of force was determined to be unjustified, and by Kretzers own admission, the inmate offered no resistance. Further, Detention Deputy Kretzer misrepresented and omitted facts of the incident in her report, including failure to document the use of force. Kretzer committed three level five violations and one level three violation, scoring 90 points on the sheriffs office discipline range. She also had five carryover points from previous disciplinary action for a total of 95 progressive disciplinary points. In accordance with agency policy, this total reverts to a 75 point level with the recommended discipline range from a 10-day suspension to termination, Internal Affairs reported. The sheriff chose termination. Criminal charges are being investigated and will be referred to the State Attorneys Office for review.Internal Affairs reports onlineDetails of Kretzers investigation are available at the sheriffs website. Gualtieri announced June 13 that in the interest of transparency and openness in government, closed Internal Affairs investigation summaries would be available to the public at www.pscoweb.com. The cases are listed in date order of when they were posted and available as a PDF. Information includes a summary and final actions. The oldest posting is from March 6. It was posted June 7. The cases show various levels of progressive discipline through termination, as well as cases in which members have been exonerated. We want to make the results of our Internal Affairs cases more readily and easily available to the citizens of Pinellas County, Gualtieri said in a press release about his decision to post the disposition summaries. This further reflects the commitment we have on keeping Pinellas County citizens well informed about our Internal Affairs process, and how complaints from the public are taken seriously.Statistical informationStatistical information about administrative and command level investigations also is available dating back to 2011. Look for the links under the dispositions on the same page. In 2012, Bureau commanders conducted 180 administrative investigations, in which 144 were deemed sustained, 18 unsubstantiated, 10 unfounded, six exonerated and two were listed in as other. The investigations resulted in 70 reprimands and 74 orders of counseling. None involved education-based discipline.Almost twice as many administrative investigations, 258, were reported in 2011. On those, 196 were sustained, 34 were deemed unsubstantiated, 10 unfounded, 11 exonerated and seven were listed in the other category. Discipline included 99 reprimands, and 97 were referred to counseling. Again, none involved education-based discipline. Internal Affairs looks into possible violations of policy or criminal laws by member of the Sheriffs Office. In 2012, Internal Affairs conducted 109 formal investigations and determined that 67 were sustained, 11 unsubstantiated, eight unfounded, five exonerated and 18 were listed as other. Seven investigations resulted in terminations, two in resignations, 42 received suspensions, nine got a reprimand and seven received other. Four received education-based discipline. In contrast to the administrative investigations, in 2011 Internal Affairs investigations were down. The division only looked into 51 cases compared to 109 in 2012. Of the 51, 38 were sustained, five were found unsubstantiated, none were unfounded, two exonerated and six were listed as other. No employees were terminated, two resigned, 31 were suspended, five were reprimanded and three received education-based discipline. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

My little girls have wanted to get their ears pierced since they were about 5 years old. I think its common for girls to want to pierce their ears. Most females have their ears pierced, so its something my kids have seen and like. Some parents get their kids ears pierced when they are babies. Ive heard some moms say they do it because they dont want people thinking their little girls are boys. I didnt have my girls ears pierced because I wanted to let them make the decision for themselves. When our girls started asking to have their ears pierced, I didnt have too much of an issue allowing them to do it, but my husband wanted them to wait until they were older. I think I was seven or eight when I got pierced ears. I know it was a big deal to me when I was allowed to do it. I felt so grown up. I think thats why my husband actually had an issue with letting them get their ears pierced because he doesnt want them to grow up. Its hard on daddies to see their babies growing up. Its hard on mommies too. In the end, my husband and I came to a compromise with the girls. We decided when they were 7 and a half they could get their ears pierced. My oldest daughter, who is 16 months older than her sister, was excited because she would be the first to start wearing earrings. When Randi Kay turned 7 and a half, she said she wanted to get her ears pierced. So we went to the mall and had them pierced. We found out then that you can ask to have both ears pierced at the same time. It is so much faster, and its over before your child can get scared to have the second ear pierced because it is already done. Randi Kay didnt even flinch. She was so proud of her new earrings and was old enough to be able to take care of them. If you havent had earrings or maybe dont remember when you first go them, you have to clean them every night, rotating the stem and backings of the earrings. You have to keep the ear clean so you dont get an infection. Randi Kay did great and hasnt had any problems. My youngest daughter, Graci, was counting down the months and days until she was 7 and a half. She wanted earrings so bad. Finally, a week before she was the appointed age, she reminded my husband and me about getting her ears pierced. The day came, and we said, OK, lets go get your ears pierced. On the car ride over she started rethinking the idea. By the time we got to the place in mall to get her ears pierced, she didnt want to do it anymore. At this point, we were trying to convince her to do it. Even my husband, who didnt really want her to get it done, was trying to talk her into it. She finally decided she would. We picked out the earrings and did the paperwork. And then, Graci decided she just couldnt do it. It was a little disappointing, but I realized if she didnt want to do it, I wasnt going to make her. I also realized that while parents can let one child do something at a certain age, the other may not be ready at that age and have to wait. On the other hand, that child may be ready at a younger age to do something else their sibling didnt do until they were older. This experience helped me recognize that once again, all kids are different, even my own two. For now, Graci doesnt have her ears pierced. But I dont think it will be too long before we are back in the mall, trying again.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 8, lives in Seminole.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, June 20, 2013(Emergency revisions to conference-planning guidelines for the Internal Revenue Service.) To all state and regional IRS managers: As a result of the critical government report about our agencys 2010 convention in Anaheim, Calif., the following changes are being implemented immediately. 1. Funds are hereby terminated for all future training videos, including but not limited to Cupid Shuffle line-dancing and Star Trek parodies. This rule is retroactive, which means that, sadly, we are canceling the Game of Thrones parody that is now in production at our Cincinnati office. (I screened the rough cut of the video and it was impressive. The costuming was authentic, and I thought Herm from our 401(c) Task Force totally nailed it as Tyrion Lannister especially that British accent! Unfortunately, building a medieval castle on the set cost way more than all those puny tea party returns could ever bring in.) Another casualty of the new spending rules is the multimedia dance video that was to be featured during our coming convention this August. The entire Birmingham office has been working out some smooth moves every afternoon (between audits) for nearly a year. Im told the choreogr aphy and exotic stagecraft put the Cupid Shufflers to shame. Unfortunately, because of the recent controversy, we wont get to see Big Ira and the Itemizers show off their Gangnam Style groove. 2. Funds are hereby terminated for the hiring of event planners for IRS conferences. As the inspector general noted, the agency spent more than $133,000 on three outside planners to secure our hotels and catering arrangements in Anaheim. The inspector generals view is that taxpayer money could be more prudently spent, and I agree. From now on, all convention planning will be done in-house by IRS personnel utilizing websites such as Google and Bing, which I am told will actually provide current information about hotel pricing in almost any city. Apparently even the phone numbers of hotels are available online, thereby eliminating the need for our agency to pay an outside contractor to find the numbers and dial them. Who knew? 3. Funds are hereby eliminated for socalled scouting trips to IRS conference sites in advance of the event. Back in 2010, we dispatched 25 employees in the months before the big annual convention, at a cost of about $36,000. The harsh criticism now being heaped upon our agency overlooks the steep logistical challenges in a city as cosmopolitan and confusing as Anaheim. To simulate the tourist experience, a squad of our designated convention scouts went to Disneyland to navigate the intimidating labyrinths of Mickeys Toontown and Splash Mountain. Others ventured to an Angels baseball game, where its not uncommon for zestful visitors to become disoriented and require police escorts from the ballpark. All scouting exercises were conducted in order to steer convention attendees away from local pitfalls. From now on, however, agency guidance will be limited to providing detailed street maps and portable Breathalyzers. 4. Funds are hereby eliminated for hiring outside speakers to address IRS conferences. In Anaheim the agency paid more than $135,000 in fees to 15 different speakers. The well-meaning effort, meant to motivate and inspire our managers, has become part of the nasty media controversy. One speaker who received $27,000 got up and told us that seemingly random combinations of ideas can drive radical innovations. Maybe it wasnt the most penetrating or original idea, but many of our attendees remained totally alert during his presentation. Another paid guest speed-painted portraits of six famous persons to dramatize the value of creative thinking. For the record, not one of the Kardashians was featured as a portrait subject, yet still the backlash has been intense. The total cost of the Anaheim shindig was $4.1 million, part of $37.5 million spent by the IRS in 2010 on conferences, meetings and conventions. Those days are over, as you are all aware, because the Obama administration cracked down the following year. In 2012 the agency spent only $4.8 million on conventions, and were committed to reducing our partying budget even more. This year all our speakers will be unpaid. Linda in our east Portland office has volunteered to present the keynote (Re-Thinking Form 8949 Whither Short-Term Capital Assets?). Afterward shell be doing pencil sketches of your favorite family pet, so dont forget to bring snapshots! Yours in service, Acting IRS Commissioner (for now) Danny WerfelCarl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132.

ButImnotanyofthosethings.Imadull oldmanwholovesAmerica,mostofmyfellow humans,andmostofthelawsofourland. Well, then, you wont have to worry about the federal snoopers, will you? They have no interest in loyal, well-behaved citizens. Thats a frequent response from those who arent familiar with U.S. wiretapping history. If they were, theyd know that government snoopers are like fishermen. They throw wide nets. Whoever is caught in them is subject to scrutiny. The guilt or innocence of the suspected citizen is not paramount. All that counts is the judgment of the snooper. With that awareness in mind, it behooves us ordinary law-abiding non-terrorists to reduce the likelihood of our catching the attention of federal snoopers. How can we do that? A few suggestions: Cease all contact with persons whose first names are Mustapha, Hashid, Abu, Kalil, Alima or any other Muslim or Arab given name. Snoopers dislike such names. To send an email to someone named Akmed could be your first step on the road to the Guantanamo prison. In your communications with friends and family, try to avoid using words such as bomb, suicide, assassination, revenge, Allah, fatwa, drone, nuclear, Koran, Sunnis and Shiites. The list is endless. Restrict your speech and emails to the weather, sports, movies, the Zimmerman trial, favorite recipes and your household pets Begin every email or phone call by writing or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Only by following such steps can we, the citizens of a free America, ensure that we are less likely to be accused of treason because of our saying the wrong word. Am I exaggerating the situation? Of course I am. Thats no crime, but one day it could be, as government spy agencies practice mission creep. Big Brother is almost always like a cancer. He starts small, grows quietly, and then achieves terminal control. To be fair, big government is not the only spy we should fear. Another one is big business. Also small business, the advertising industry, television and any other entity that uses secret surveillance to mine the habits and preferences of consumers and ordinary people. Given enough time, these multifaceted snoopers may be able to turn you and me into pawns and robots. We may eventually end up thinking, speaking, shopping and voting precisely as the snoopers wish us to. Before that sad day arrives, however, there is hope. It lies in the fact that most forms of todays snooping are rooted in cyberspace. And nobody has full control of cyberspace. Evidence of that truth lies in the ongoing success of hackers and cyber-warriors. Almost at will, they invade the secret recesses of the military, government, aviation, banking and medicine. They can steal or cripple, or do both. In due time perhaps even now hackers will be legally able to throw monkey wrenches into the super-confidential workings of todays super-snoopers. Even if they choose not to openly wage war on the surveillance teams of government and business, talented hackers/programmers should be able to devise computer programs that will camouflage subscribers from the snooping efforts of Big Brother and Co. As Americans wake up to the dangers of digital espionage, I can envision nationwide non-violent rebellions against the governments busybodies. Class-action lawsuits might be one avenue of protest; legal actions have already begun, aimed at forcing the government to reveal the workings of the spy programs. Proof of effectiveness could be another attack, in which a spy agency would be required to demonstrate, beyond reasonable doubt, that its surveillance techniques were producing significant results. Such an approach would simply be a demonstration of Ronald Reagans Trust, but verify policies. To sum up: I wish all success to snoopers whose true purpose is to smoke out evildoers. But I fear that within all snooper ranks the spirit of Joe McCarthy and Dick Cheney is watching, and waiting. Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun.

House Speaker John Boehner called Snowden a traitor. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein railed that he had committed treason. My synopsis: Snowden is scary because the government and private contractor Booz Allen Hamilton entrusted him with sensitive national secrets. Snowden is clearly intelligent. Its not your average high-school dropout who lands a six-figure job that serves him up the keys to the intelligence kingdom. He was shrewd and brave to come forward as a leaker rather than remain in the shadows. But Snowden is not so smart as he thinks. He told Greenwald the reason he leaked: I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. Oddly, he said that in Hong Kong. When you race to China, observed Richard Grenell, former spokesman to four U.S. ambassadors to the United Nations, then you just look like a buffoon. Some differentiate Snowden from Pfc. Bradley Manning, who pleaded guilty to nine espionage charges and is facing more serious charges. Manning dumped hundreds of thousands of unredacted documents that put many others lives at risk. I havent seen any information that would suggest that the Snowden revelations put any intelligence operatives in danger, said Hoover Institution foreign policy fellow Kori Schake. And: It didnt require the Snowden revelations for al-Qaida to figure that we were tracking them electronically. I wonder how many more Snowdens are out there among the nearly 1.5 million Americans with top secret credentials who work for the government or private contractors. The intelligence community has given baby-faced technicians access to top-secret documents without making sure they understand the need to be true to this trust. Manning was in his early 20s when he started giving away Americas secrets. Snowden is not old enough to serve in the U.S. Senate yet this unelected IT guy thinks he has a right to determine which information should remain classified. It makes you wonder whether U.S. intelligence has gotten too big, whether the spy community is tasked with culling more information than it can process. Schake sees a weakened mission focus. As Grenell sees it, the federal government just keeps throwing money at problems, and there are very few bureaucracies that have an ongoing evaluation program of how the program works. After being flagged, according to law enforcement, the Tsarnaev brothers planned their Boston Marathon bombings undisturbed; Snowdens supervisors failed to notice that his attitude had taken a dangerous turn. Quoth Grenell, We have to go back to the drawing board and reprioritize. Perhaps it is time to put more of the human factor into the intelligence field. As Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., noted at a Senate intelligence hearing Wednesday, just because youre a champion swimmer doesnt mean you should be a Navy SEAL.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. The IT guys who knew too muchRed light cameras rob citizensEditor: It looks like insouciance continues to run amuck at St. Petersburg City Hall. The City Council has voted once again to keep red light cameras in the city. This despite the fact that study after study has shown the cameras cause accidents and do nothing to improve safety at intersections. Red light cameras in St. Petersburg are just another scheme by the City Council to rob its citizens; just like the citys obscene 16 percent taxes and franchise fees on electricity and the citys outrageous 20.4095 mills and business tangible taxes. Clearly, the state Legislature needs to outlaw red light cameras. Bob Snow ClearwaterLand grabbing on the beachEditor: As a property owner and regular visitor to the beautiful seashore at Indian Rocks Beach, I was dismayed to discover a new blight being inflicted on us cabanas on the sands. I am well aware of the need to seek protection from the suns rays, but this outbreak of land grabbing by cabana owners is way too much. We seem to have imported the European disease whereby cabana owners descend on the beach in the morning, set up camp, and depart to residences or local shops having reserved their space on the beach for the day. There are several problems with this: the cabanas alone cover a wide area; their guy ropes make the area taken even larger (and are an invitation to trip). Setting up at the waters edge blocks the path of the many hundreds of walkers who exercise each day along the firm sands, and most importantly, there aint enough beach for all of us to start doing this! Come on folks, lets not be selfish shade and share! Ian Robertson Indian Rocks BeachVeterans treated like trashEditor: What or who is a vet? Well, a vet is a person who serves in time of war. But then when its over they are thrown away like old socks. They keep us safe from harm, but still thrown away. They are told its an honor to serve. This is what they are given as an honor, but then when they come home its a different story. These men and women should be honored and well taken care of, not in the streets or alley, homeless or broken down to nothing. We, as people, should thank them for our freedom and way of life that we enjoy. But no, we treat them like trash. To be thrown away in a nursing home or out on the street. This is not the kind of treatment they deserve but what is going on right under our noses. Rose Carter Clearwater Debra Saunders Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Seniors should avoid caffeine and alcoholic beverages as much as possible as they accelerate dehydration. Have him or her drink plenty of water. The body also loses sodium and potassium through sweating, so popular sports drinks can be good for rehydration also. Good nutrition and adequate fluids are especially important for seniors in the hot summer months. Remember, dehydration increases the risk of skin injury. Take frequent breaks to cool down. When spending time out in the hot sun, its beneficial to take numerous breaks to recover. Having a cool area in his or her home in which to recover can also be beneficial. Make sure the homes cooling device-whether its an electric fan, a portable air conditioner or central AC-is working properly to ensure faster recovery. Limit strenuous activity and exercise. Our body works hard enough during the hot days that adding strenuous physical activity can be detrimental. If your senior exercises regularly, try it during the early morning or late evenings.Planning around the hottest time of the day can help to limit exposure to the heat. 12A Health Health newsSmith named HealthSouth CEOLARGO Tripp Smith has been named as the chief executive officer of HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Largo.

During the 1970s, a new brand of pop music was born, one that was steeped in African and African American styles particularly jazz and R&B but appealed to a broader cross section of the listening public. As founder and leader of the band Earth, Wind & Fire, Maurice White not only embraced but also helped bring about this evolution of pop, which bridged the gap that has often separated the musical tastes of black and white America. It certainly was successful, as EWF combined high-caliber musicianship, wide-ranging musical genre eclecticism, and s multicultural spiritualism to produce numerous hit singles such as Shining Star and the classic ballad Reasons. The groups multi-platinum greatest hits set The Best Of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. I included a cover of The Beatles Got To Get You Into My Life that went to No. 1 R&B and No. 9 pop in summer 1978. The group performed the song in the 1978 Bee Gees/Peter Frampton movie Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Another single, September, made it to No. 1 on the R&B charts and No. 8 on the pop charts. The multi-platinum album I AM hit No. 3 on the pop charts in the summer of 1979 on the strength of the million-selling single Boogie Wonderland and the phenomenal ballad After The Love Has Gone, written by David Foster, Jay Graydon and Bill Champlin, which stayed at No. 2 on the R&B/pop charts for two weeks. In 2000, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Founding members Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnson continue to tour with the legendary band performing at sold-out shows around the world. Tim Allen, Thursday, July 25, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $49. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Best known for his role as Tim Taylor on Home Improvement, Tim Allen will bring his latest standup tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall. This show is for mature audiences only. After graduating college, Allen made his first stand-up appearance in 1979 at Detroits Comedy Castle, which he still considers his comedy birthplace. After paying his dues on the comedy circuit at nightclubs around the country and performing in a 1988 film called Comedys Dirtiest Dozen, Allen set out to make his mark in Los Angeles. He started getting spots at the top comedy clubs in L.A., but his exposure got a big boost from the KLOS radio show The Five Oclock Funnies which aired audio clips from his stand-up act, and thus, a devoted grunting audience was born. In 1990, he was pleasantly surprised to win a Cable Ace Award for Best Performance in a Comedy Special for the concert film of the Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal. From there, he performed in his own half-hour special for Showtime entitled Men Are Pigs, which really solidified the unique slant on masculinity that he is known for to this day. In the fall of 1991, the pilot for Home Improvement introduced viewers to Tim Taylor. The series managed to break into the Nielsen top ten lists during its first season on the air and moved to the No. 1 position by the 1993-94 season, topping all other series. Allen has also starred in many feature films including the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Disney/Pixars Toy Story franchise, The Santa Clause films, Galaxy Quest, Wild Hogs, Redbelt and Crazy on the Outside, which was also his directorial debut.

The groups summer tour, A Midsummers Night With The Monkees, follows the 2012 fall tour to the Tampa Bay area as a follow-up to the 2012 fall tour featuring Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork. The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-ofa-kind photographs culled from the archives.

Whitesnakes ascent to the very top of the rock n roll heap was confirmed with 1987s self-titled mega-platinum album, which saw two massive Top 10 hits, two No. 1 singles with Here I Go Again and Is This Love, and a virtual 24-hour Looking ahead Looking ahead See LOOKING AHEAD, page 4BJune 20, 2013CapricornDecember 22 January 19 Crash and burn?

Many of the films being offered through these programs debuted at the box office just last year. ParaNorman, for instance, was released in August 2012. ParaNorman is set in the town of Blithe Hollow, whose locals profit from mining the towns history as the site, 300 years ago, of a famous witchhunt. Norman Babcock (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), an 11year-old, spends much of his days appreciating the finer points of scary movies and studying ghost lore. In fact, Norman is gifted with the ability to see and speak with the dead, such as his beloved grandmother (Elaine Stritch). Most days, he prefers their company to that of his flustered father (Jeff Garlin), spacey mother (Leslie Mann), and deeply superficial older sister Courtney (Anna Kendrick). At middle school, Norman dodges bullying Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), confides in the impressionable Neil (Tucker Albrizzi), and tries to tune out his blowhard teacher Mrs. Henscher (Alex Borstein). Norman is unexpectedly contacted by his odd uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman), who floors him with the revelation that a centuries-old witchs curse is real and is about to come true, and that only Norman will be able to stop it from going into overdrive and harming the townspeople. Once a septet of zombies led by The Judge (Bernard Hill) suddenly rises from their graves, Norman finds himself caught in a wild race against time alongside Courtney, Alvin, Neil, and Neils musclebound older brother Mitch (Casey Affleck) as Sheriff Hooper (Tempestt Bledsoe) chases them all. Worse, the town is up in arms and taking up arms. Norman bravely summons up all that makes a hero courage and compassion as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits. Dr. Seuss The Lorax hit screens originally in March 2012. The animated adventure follows the journey of a 12-year-old as he searches for a real Truffula Tree, the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To get it he must find the story of the Lorax, the acerbic yet charming character who fights to protect his world. Lending their vocal talents to the project are Danny DeVito as the iconic title character of the Lorax and Ed Helms as the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their voices to the adventure are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic youth who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Audrey, the girl of Teds dreams. Rounding out the cast are Rob Riggle as the villain OHare, Jenny Slate as Teds protective mother and beloved actress Betty White as Teds wise Grammy Norma. Rise of the Guardians arrived in theaters in November 2012. Rise of the Guardians is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere. Madagascar 3 was originally released in June of 2012. In the third installment of the popular franchise, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent Madagascar style. The Smurfs dates back to July 2011. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, theyre forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New Yorks Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. The July 2 screening of The Smurfs at Seminole TouchStar Cinemas will provide an opportunity for children and adults to catch the first franchise film prior to the release of the first sequel. The Smurfs 2 will open in wide release on July 31.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.

PETERSBURG Studio@620 recently was chosen by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for its Untraditional Artist Residency program grant.The Studio@620 in St. Petersburg, is one of 10 grantee teams chosen nationwide, and the only one in the Southeast to receive a grant through the Doris Duke Artist Residencies to Build Demand for the Arts. The nonprofit center will receive $80,000 to partner with vocalist/actor/writer Sharon Scott to create a multi-disciplinary artist accelerator featuring jazz, contemporary dance, and/or theater work developed by Generation Y, also known as Millennial, artists. Scott will direct the initiative and serve as mentor to the artists, helping them to conceptualize their works. The 18-month-long project will develop innovative ways to engage the digital first Generation Y audience that will increase interest in jazz, contemporary dance, and/or theater. The program will inspire the audience to move from engagement through the small screen interface into a physical venue to experience live performance and then back again to the small screen. The program will use social media and digital community networking to announce the call to Generation Y emerging artists. According to a press release from Studio@620, 12 emerging artists will be recruited to develop works virtually and in workshops that will incubate original jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance. From these, six artists will be chosen for live performances at the Studio@620 facility. Application procedures for the program will be announced at the end of June. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary later this month, we will celebrate our organizations receipt of this prestigious award and look forward to seeking out and developing new artistic talent from our community, said Bob Devin Jones in the press release. Jones is artist director of the Studio @620. Working digitally and later presenting live performances benefits the artists, our audience development, and St. Petersburg. Unlike traditional residency programs, the Doris Duke Artist Residencies to Build Demand for the Arts program supports partnerships between artists and organizations, enabling participants to create and pilot methods for reaching the public and developing individuals interest in and conventional notions about artists residences to encourage organizations and artist to work in new, imaginative ways to meet this challenge. The Studio@620 is at 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg. Its mission is to provide a place in which people can experience artistic and educational programs in innovative ways; to bring people from diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences together as artists, audiences and volunteers; to work collaboratively with artistic, educational, and cultural organizations in and beyond our community; and to develop artistic and educational programs that integrate a variety of art forms in order to encourage new cultural experiences both for the audience and the artists.

West Side StoryBroadway classic recounts story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria at Ruth Eckerd HallCLEARWATER More than 50 years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theater forever and now, its making history once again. The national tour of the smash hit Broadway revival West Side Story will run for five performances, June 21-23, at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $50. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. Performances will be Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 7 p.m. Matinees will be Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim a collection of standards that includes Tonight, America, Maria, I Feel Pretty and Somewhere is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance. Laurents Broadway direction is re-created for the tour by David Saint, the associate director on Broadway. Tony Award-nominee Joey McKneely methodically reproduces the original Robbins choreography. West Side Story tells the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria as they struggle to rise above the hatred and intolerance that surrounds them. This tour offers a bold new design that builds on the shows raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it. James Youmans headed scenic design. His rsum includes Gypsy on Broadway as well as Matt and Ben, Hedwig and the Angry Itch and The Petrified Prince off-Broadway and the national tour for Cinderella. The touring cast features Addison Reid Coe as Tony and MaryJoanna Grisso as Maria. Coes love for theatre and film was cultivated by his mother who has love and endless knowledge of golden age musicals and films. It wasnt until his senior year in high school that Addison started to actively pursue singing and acting. When he didnt make the varsity soccer team, he joined choir, where his high school teacher saw the potential in him. Coe attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., where he studied vocal performance for three years then changed his major to business communications and finished his degree in the fall of 2011. After playing Warner in Legally Blonde at Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre, Coe was tapped for the national tour of West Side Story. Grisso grew up in Morgantown, W.V. She started performing at an early age and received both encouragement and instruction at home: Her mother is a music teacher and her father is a musician. She attended West Virginia University and graduated with a bachelors degree in vocal performance and a minor in theater. She starred in leading roles in several main stage productions at the university. Also on tour in supporting roles are Michelle Alves as Anita, Theo Lencicki as Riff and Andrs Acosta as Bernardo. Rounding out the current company of West Side Story are Amber Ardolino, Yesenia Ayala, Lauren Cannon, Konrad Case, Blue Cervini, Max Chucker, Mark Deler, Erika Hebron, Dan Higgins, Matthew Krob, Greg London, Guy Mandia Jr, ThomasPhotos by CAROL ROSEGG West Side Story was his first musical, and was followed by Gypsy, Anyone Can Whistle, Nick & Nora and others. His first screenplay was The Snake Pit in 1948, followed by others such as Rope, Anastasia, The Way We Were and The Turning Point. His posthumous memoir, The Rest of the Story, was published in 2012. Bernstein transformed the way Americans and people everywhere hear and appreciate music. A few of his many compositions include the symphonies Jeremiah and The Age of Anxiety, the theater piece Mass, Chichester Psalms, Divertimento, the film score for On the Waterfront, the ballets Fancy Free and Facsimile and the operas Trouble in Tahiti and A Quiet Place. He was music director of the New York Philharmonic from 1958 to 1969 and, over his lifetime, conducted many of the major orchestras of the world. His Broadway musicals include Wonderful Town, Candide, Pennsylvania Avenue and West Side Story. Sondheim, a composer and lyricist, is known for his prolific contributions to musical theater. He wrote the music and lyrics for Saturday Night, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, The Frogs, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park With George, Into the Woods, Assassins, Passion and Road Show, as well as lyrics for West Side Story, Gypsy, Do I Hear a Waltz? and additional lyrics for Candide.

Debuting on Broadway in 1957, West Side Story was written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award-winner Arthur Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Awardwinners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) in his Broadway debut. Laurents first play, Home of the Brave, opened on Broadway in 1945, followed by many others. His most recent plays are A Key Change and Come Back, Come Back, Wherever You Are.
