Page 11A. Kids Triathlon set to go in Seminole By BRIAN GOFFTry it. Youll like it. That is clearly the message from the organizers and past participants of the Recreation Departments Tri If You Dare Kids Triathlon, held this year on Sunday, June 30. This will be the ninth year of the triathlon, which is open to kids ages 5 to 15. It was started to provide kids with a healthy alternative for summertime activity, said Jim Sheets, the events race director since it began in 2005. A lot of sports shut down for the summer, so this is a good alternative for that. Each year there is room for 325 participants and every summer the event has no trouble attracting this number of children. There is good reason for that, Sheets said. The triathlon encompasses everything a kid loves to do. Kids love to ride their bikes, they love to swim and they love to run around. Individual sports can get boring and monotonous, but a multisport like the triathlon adds variety and excitement. The event consists of three segments. Kids of ages 5 and 6 run for 1/4 mile, bike for 1 mile and swim 25 yards. Those from ages 7 to 10 run for 1/2 mile, bike 2 miles and swim 100 yards. And ages 11 to 15 run for 1 mile, bike 4 miles and swim 150 yards. Those participating, according to Sheets, can either do it to have fun or take the competition more seriously. I would say there is a balance of competitiveness and fun, he said. This was created as an introduction to the sport, and it is still an introduction to the sport because we get new 5 and 6 year olds every year. But as they come back year after year, I can see a difference in them; I can see a change as they get older and more competitive. Alexis Stevens, 17, who first competed in the triathlon in 2007, when she was 11, was competitive with herself. I was doing it to prove a point that I could do it, she said. I wanted to prove it to myself. It turned out she not only finished, but also came in fourth in her age group and that encouraged her to participate the following year and every year after until she became too old. I thought it was fun the first time, even though I didnt train for it, she said. I wasnt much of an athlete, not a runner or a swimmer or a biker.

Daniel Wood, SHS band director, steps down By BRAD RICHARDSONAfter 14 years, Daniel Chip Wood IV, one of Pinellas Countys top music directors, has stepped down from his role with the Seminole High School Warhawk band to pursue the next step of his professional music career: his masters degree. Wood will attend either the University of South Florida or the University of West Florida for his masters degree in Education Leadership. The school has named Gerard Madrinan, a SHS alumni and formerly the assistant music director at the school, as Woods replacement. For Wood, this decision has been on his mind for some time. I have been very blessed with the kids that I have had in the program for the past 14 years, said Wood. There are days that it didnt dawn on me at all that this would be my last time [with them.] But with the final rehearsals with the ensembles, it kind of dawned on me the x amount of hours left. I stressed to the kids about it being a good time of music making and performance. Throughout his years at Seminole, Wood always sought the next step in his life and his career. After meeting his wife, Kay, through the marching band program, and starting a family, he continued to think about what to do next. Going back to school was always a certainty. I know where I am right now with my career and I knew that if I didnt do it soon I wouldnt be able to do it at all, he said. It had been on my mind back and forth for a little while. When you are with a program like Seminole, there is always another stone unturned. I had done a lot and I just felt like maybe this was the time to work on a masters degree, have a slight break and teach at an elementary. Wood has brought accolades to the SHS program, along with creating new ensembles to add to the programs growing repertoire. Since 1999 to 2013, the Warhawk marching band has been a Bands of America regional finalist 20 times, the Class 3A Regional Champion four times and a four-time Bands of America Grand National semi-finalist. They have been crowned Grand Champion in both District 4A and 5A FMBC State Championships and have received consistent superior performance ratings by music adjudicators in the Florida Bandmasters Association in Marching Band, Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band. In 2003, the Warhawk Marching band became the first marching band in the state of Florida to receive the prestigious John Phillip Sousa Sudler Shield Award. But throughout the 14 years and all the accolades that he has received with the program, Wood attributes the bands success to the support of the Seminole community and high school. Both allowed the program to grow to new heights and shape a tradition of excellence that had long been set forth, even before he became its director. Graduating from Lakewood High School, Wood went to the University of Florida and received his bachelors degree in music education in 1994. In addition to being a member of the USF Wind Ensemble, the UF Gator Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Gainesville Chamber Orchestra, he was a member of the Suncoast Sound Drum and Bugle Corps. Before Wood was able to take the Warhawk band to new heights, he worked with the percussion ensembles under the tutelage of Dr. Michael Robinson, who is now the director of athletic bands/assistant director of bands at the University of Georgia. He helped the program produce music for award-winning marching band field shows as Appalachian Springs, Miss Saigon and Western Images. Woods first teaching job came in 1994, when he became the director of bands at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs. During Woods time at East Lake, Rick Misenti, the schools principal, saw the motivation and high standards he would set with his students. He also noted how Wood never missed a step, even if he noticed a note or formation on the field wasnt correct. He was the consummate professional, said Misenti. He had a great rapport with his students and the families that supported his program. It didnt matter if it was on stage during a concert or rehearsing in the back parking lot till 10 oclock at night, he gave that program his all. And he had more things to offer kids in the field of music than anyone I have ever encountered as a principal in Pinellas County. After former Seminole director John Davis left the band in 1999, Wood applied to become new band director and assumed the role that summer. By that year, the bands reputation on a competitive level began to grow. Between 20012005 the band had its top competitive years at Bands of America competitions throughout the state of Florida and on the national level. But Wood felt Above, participants in a previous Kids Triathlon race to the finish line. The next such event will be held Sunday.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A That quickly changed and in 2011 Stevens was the second overall female. She was one of those kids who tried it and liked it. I would advise any young person to join. It is a fun thing to do, she said. They will like it more as they grow older and they will continue to want to do it. Jacob Endrulat, 18, was a longtime participant in the triathlon, and in 2010, at 15, was the overall winner of the competition. But he remembers the fun he had more than winning. It was loads of fun, he said. You get there early and have a good time. There is a big splash party, pizza and watermelon and a DJ. It is good, great exercise and it is real exhilarating. Both Stevens and Endrulat have turned their love of exercise into summer jobs, as both are now employed as lifeguards at the Recreation Center. Sheets said there is more to taking part in the triathlon than just racing and exercise. It is healthy, first and foremost, he said. It allows them the opportunity to make new friends and learn good sportsmanship. This is a life-long sport; there are competitors in their 80s still doing this. The Tri It If You Dare Triathlon begins at 7:15 a.m. on Sunday, June 30, at the Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex at 9100 113th St. N. The oldest group goes first, and then the younger groups follow as the one before finishes. The entry fee is $35 and children can sign up at the Rec Center through June 29. All participants will receive a medal for finishing and the top five finishers in each age group will receive a trophy for their accomplishment.the bands next step should be on a much larger scale. It was in 2002 during a band competition in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he was asked by then Tournament of Roses Parade president Dave Davis to apply for the Rose Bowl Parade held in Pasadena, California. The Warhawk band would become the first high school band in Pinellas County and the state of Florida to march in the internationally recognized parade watched by more than 39 million Americans every year. Misenti remembers the first time they found out; things changed for the Seminole high and the rest of the community. It was like a lid had come off the school. It was probably and arguably one of the largest community events that I have ever been a part of, Wood said. Woods capstone year came in 2013, when they would march for the second time in the 124th tournament of Roses Parade. It was the first time in the history of the school and Pinellas County where one band had a group of students that had the opportunity to march in the same parade twice. In addition to Wood leaving, other notable music teachers in the Seminole community will be making their departures. Chad Guess will be stepping down as the band director of Seminole Middle School to pursue the music directors position at Madeira Beach Fundamental Middle School. David Tagliarini, the current director at Madeira Beach, will be leaving to teach elementary music education. The 2012-2013 Seminole High School band.

Also notable is PIEs six consecutive years without a vehicle/pedestrian runway incursion or infraction. The FAA issues Airport Operating Certificates to ensure safety in air transportation. An airport must agree to certain operational and safety standards and conducts inspections annually for compliance. The annual inspection reviews airport emergency planning, wildlife management, fueling operations, aircraft rescue and firefighting, employee training, runway and taxiway signage and pavement markings. The FAA reviewed the inspection with airport officials on June 19 and the airport will receive a full written report in a few weeks. The airport team has done an outstanding job ensuring that safety is our top priority and certainly has been recognized by the FAA over the last nine years with findings of no discrepancies, said Airport Director Noah Lagos. PIEs three runways, which are 9,730 feet, 5,900 feet, and 4,000 feet, and the taxiways are operated and maintained by the airport. The airport is a department of Pinellas County Government and the Airport Rescue Firefighting Station is operated as a division of the airport. St. Pete-Clearwater International served more than 865,000 passengers in 2012, a 4 percent increase over the prior year. May 2013 marked a 28 percent increase in monthly passengers over the prior May. Additionally, operations in general aviation increased, with yearto date operations up 13 percent.Sunstar Paramedics earn accreditation for operationsLARGO Pinellas Countys Sunstar Paramedics recently received accreditation from the Commission of Accreditation of Ambulance Services. East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System Emergency Medical Services announced that CAAS had accredited all five of the companys divisions, including the Pinellas County branch. CAAS is an independent commission that established a comprehensive series of standards for the ambulance service industry. CAAS accreditation signifies that an EMS service has met the gold standard determined by the ambulance industry to be essential in a modern emergency medical services provider. These standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation. The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization. In addition to the CAAS accreditations, Sunstars operations dispatch center is ACE accredited by the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch. Also, the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport System accredits the Pinellas County Paramedics Plus operation, Sunstar, for its critical care transport services. We are thrilled to hear that we renewed our accreditations with CASS, said Mark Postma, COO with Sunstar Paramedics. These accreditations are important to us, as they signify our level of standards for EMS services.

Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, received the 2013 Senator of the Year Award from the Florida Retail Federation at its event in Orlando on June 19. He was recognized for his strong support of the retail industry in Florida as he advanced their programs during the 2013 Legislative Session. Floridas retailers know that they can count on Senator Latvala to advance policies that help our businesses grow and create jobs, said Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the Florida Retail Federation. We are proud to honor Senator Latvala as our Senator of the Year, and we look forward to his continued leadership in the Legislature. As a small business owner myself, I understand the importance of keeping retail businesses flourishing in Florida, said Latvala. Florida depends on these businesses to keep our economy healthy. Latvala was the sponsor of legislation that would have limited liability to protect businesses from unnecessary litigation. He also was recognized for his role as Chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee and the landmark reforms that were passed under his leadership this session.Gulfport Art Walks go year-roundGULFPORT Gulfport Art Walks take place on the first Friday and third Saturday of every month, year-round, 6 to 10 p.m., along the citys waterfront art district on South Beach Boulevard.

Locally established in 1967, Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States. The longevity of its existence speaks volumes to the power of mentoring. There are currently 51 girls in Pinellas, Citrus and Hernando counties waiting to be matched with a Big Sister. These girls often have an incarcerated parent, reside with a relative caregiver or live in a singleparent home. The presence of a positive female role model would impact their lives tremendously. Big Brothers Big Sisters has been the leader in one-to-one youth service for more than a century, developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people. Sometimes all a child needs is someone to talk too, a mentor to provide guidance and an encouraging influence to start them on the right path in life. To inquire about how to become a Big Sister, contact volunteer recruiter Samantha at SamanthaF@bbbspc.org.

Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs major accident team said John Patrick Campbell, 52, of St. Petersburg was driving his 2005 Chrysler Pacifica southbound on Park Street when a bicyclist rode out in front of his car. The bicyclist, Joshua David Gaddy, 27, was ejected from his bicycle and transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Gaddy died the next morning. Campbell was not injured. Detectives said Gaddy was crossing mid-block, not in a crosswalk and did not have the right of way. His bicycle was not equipped with lights or reflectors. Detectives also said use of alcohol and/or controlled substances by the bicyclist might be a factor in the crash. The investigation continues.Palm Harbor man killed by falling treePALM HARBOR A Palm Harbor man died June 17 when a branch from a falling tree impaled him. Pinellas County sheriffs deputies said the death appears to be accidental. Deputies responded to the home on Leprechaun Lane about 3:15 p.m. According to the sheriffs report, Dan Paul Butts, 63, and his girlfriend, Beverly Drew, 50, were clearing trees from their backyard. Butts cut a tree with a chainsaw, and Drew was in the couples Ford SUV pulling the tree, using a rope tied on the tree to the vehicle. Drew heard a scream and saw that the tree had fallen on butts and a branch had impaled him. She called 911 and attempted CPR. EMS responded. Butts was pronounced dead at the scene. The Medical Examiners Office responded to the scene to take custody of the body. The investigation continues.Deputies investigate aggravated batteryCLEARWATER Pinellas County patrol deputies are investigating an aggravated battery that occurred between midnight and 1 a.m. June 17. According to the sheriffs report, a 25-year-old female was walking from a friends house to her home in the High Point area of Clearwater, when she was reportedly knocked to the ground by two males and apparently cut on the back. The distance from one house to the other is just a couple of blocks. Deputies said at some point following the attack, the victim made it home and began to tap at the door; her roommate came out, saw that she was injured and called 911. The victim was transported to a local hospital by air for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. No description of the suspects is available at this time. The investigation continues.Dunedin fire under investigationDUNEDIN It took about 20 minutes to get a fire under control at a single-family home at 1965 Sourwood Blvd. in Dunedin June 11.

One occupant was found outside the home and required transport via Sunstar ambulance to Mease Dunedin Hospital. One neighbor was evaluated for smoke inhalation and released by paramedics on scene. One firefighter suffered minor burn injuries and was treated and released. Two dogs and three birds were rescued from the house.

Unlicensed contractors arrested following multi-agency stingCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Office of Consumer Protection announced results from a sting June 21 aimed at cracking down on unlicensed contractors. The suspects were found through Craigslist ads, business cards posted to bulletin boards at local businesses and phone number tear-off solicitations. Investigators sought bids for general home renovations, including kitchen remodeling, flooring, drywall repairs and electrical work. The purpose of the operation was to protect consumers from the dangers of hiring an unlicensed individual, which could result in financial harm, safety concerns and damage to consumers homes. In all, nine individuals were arrested and charged with 15 misdemeanor counts of unlicensed contracting and nine felony counts of failure to secure workers compensation insurance. The sting operation was a joint investigation with Pinellas County Consumer Protection, the Office of the State Attorney 6th Judicial Circuit and the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Insurance Fraud. Pinellas County Consumer Protection urges consumers to follow these tips before hiring anyone to work on their property: Only hire licensed contractors and ask to see their license. Verify the license at www.myfloridali cense.com Check the complaint history of a business at www.pinellascounty.org/consumer Dont pay more than 10 percent as a down payment Obtain at least three bids, check references, and get a written contract Be suspicious of individuals who ask for payment in full up front, solicit door-to-door or ask to be paid in cash only For more information on Pinellas County services and programs, visit www.pinellascounty.org. was pinned shut, having been pushed 8 to 10 inches inside the cab of the vehicle.

Commissioners approved two items of business June 18 that pave the way to begin collecting money during the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. Commissioner Norm Roche cast the lone no vote to both. Commissioner John Morroni was absent but left a letter stating his support as long as the Adopt-a-Pond program could be reinstated. Property owners in unincorporated areas will see a line item for surface water on the Truth in Millage Notice coming from the Property Appraiser in August. Just like other taxes, the amount could go down when the commission approves the budget and millage rates in September, but cannot increase. County staff estimates that the fee could bring in about $17 million a year to pay for operations and maintenance. Staff has been working on a plan for the last couple of years to provide a dedicated funding source to pay for stormwater management services. In past years, money for stormwater needs has come from the transportation fund, which is quickly becoming depleted, and the dwindling dollars in the general fund. Capital improvement projects for stormwater have been funded by Penny for Pinellas. However, those funding sources have never provided enough money to keep up with the needs of an aging system. Public complaints about flooding due to stormwater runoff, ponding water on streets, erosion and water quality continue. Changing state and federal regulations on discharge of pollutants coming from stormwater runoff enhanced the necessity of providing more funding for operations and maintenance of surface water systems to comply with the new rules. Property owners in unincorporated areas will be assessed a fee based on the estimated amount of stormwater runoff generated by impervious surfaces per parcel. Impervious surfaces are those that water cant pass through, such as roofs, patios, driveways and parking lots. County staff determined that the median single-family residence in unincorporated Pinellas includes 2,339 square feet of impervious surface, which is the value of one equivalent residential unit or ERU Value. Single-family residences are categorized into one of four ERU tiers based on the estimated impervious area, which is calculated using the building footprint of the residence. The fee for condominiums is calculated by taking the total number of ERUs for the complex as a whole and dividing by the total number of residential units in the complex. The fee for commercial properties is figured by taking the number of ERUs for each parcel and dividing the impervious surface area by 2,339 square feet. Property owners can apply for credits if they have privately maintained stormwater management facilities that affect the amount of runoff coming from a parcel. The annual surface water fee assessment rate for fiscal year 20132014 is set at $116 per net ERU. Opposition to the new fee was scant during the June 18 public hearing. Roche continued to object, saying a countywide solution was the better way. Deb Caso from Palm Harbor called the new fee an unfair tax, and described the ordinance that governs the assessment as ungodly. It goes against nature, she said. Her husband, Tony Caso, also objected to the tax on rain. Has common sense left this building permanently, he asked. Youre looking to tax rainwater. The only one that controls the rain is God. Send him a bill and see how far you get. Commission Chair Ken Welch expressed concern about the cost to property owners. The fee is based on a charge of $9.60 a month. He pays $6.84 to the city of St. Petersburg for stormwater. His opinion is that the proposed fee could be too high. The amount was calculated based on the amount of money required to pay for operations and maintenance. Commissioner Karen Seel was disappointed that the fee would not allow for capital projects. County Attorney Jim Bennett said due to board policy that requires users to pay the costs, the fee could only be used for operation and maintenance that would benefit the unincorporated area as a whole. A separate fee could be assessed for capital projects and for only those folks who benefit, he said. A final decision on the surface water fee is set for Sept. 10, 6 p.m., in the Fifth Floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Clearwater. If approved, property owners in unincorporated areas will be billed by the tax collector. Failure to pay the assessment will result in a tax certificate being issued against the property, which could result in the loss of title to the property.Photo by TERRE PORTERHeavy downpours are common in Florida this time of year.

Effective Sept. 1, Circuit Judge Thomas M. Minkoffs court dockets and calendars will be filled with foreclosure cases that were filed in Pinellas prior to Jan. 1 of this year. Since the beginning of the year, Circuit Judge William Burgess has had a similar assignment in Pasco County, where the backlog is an additional 13,000 cases. Most of the backlog is residential foreclosures, but Minkoff also will be dealing with commercial foreclosures that were filed prior to Jan. 1. Chief Judge J. Thomas McGrady said caseloads are being reassigned to tackle the backlog built up by the rash of foreclosures that began with the economic downturn. The courts have been stressed to deal with the avalanche of foreclosures, and despite determined efforts by judges and staff, we still have this tremendous backlog in our circuit and statewide, he explained. At a June 14 meeting with more than 100 attorneys who represent lenders and borrowers in foreclosure matters, McGrady discussed how the new section will function and outlined other procedures being implemented to cut the time that cases are allowed to linger in court. The Legislature placed a priority on decreasing the backlog and provided statewide funding for that purpose, McGrady said. The $9.5 million the state allocated to the Floridas courts for the fiscal year that begins July 1 does not allow for any additional judges. But the Sixth Circuits $775,000 will be used for senior judge days, additional case managers and magistrates who will be hired into temporary positions. Senior judges are fully qualified judges who assist the courts when active judges are ill, have lengthy trials, or if other unexpected situations arise, such as the heavy caseloads created by the foreclosure cases. The funds are from money that Florida received from the National Mortgage Settlement, provided by large lenders partially responsible for the large number of foreclosures in Florida and other states. In addition to funding the courts plans to clear the backlog, the Legislature provided a two-year allocation of $9.7 million to the clerks offices around the state, which also have been over-run with the filings. Another $5.3 million (including $70,000 for the Sixth Circuit) was designated for new technology that will help the courts better track the cases that linger. During the meeting with attorneys, McGrady explained the foreclosure section and announced other changes in foreclosure procedures. A new law passed by the 2013 Legislature mandates some changes; others better utilize resources available to the Circuit. Mediation continues to be a recommended way for homeowners to work toward resolving foreclosure actions. But newly filed cases will no longer be automatically referred to mediation. Once an action is filed, the lender or borrower must file a motion for mediation. McGrady said, Mediation has changed from an opt out program to an opt in program. Employees of our mediation managers were spending too much time tracking down foreclosure defendants who were not interested in mediating the issues. McGrady recommended that mediation be sought by anyone who has a foreclosure filed against them. Mediation Managers Inc. continues to be the Circuits foreclosure program manager, and the lenders remain responsible for the initial fees charged for mediation. Any defendant/borrower may initiate the mediation by filing a motion with the Court. Other details of the mediation program are available at www.jud6.org/LegalCommunity/MortgageForeclosures.html. McGrady strongly recommended that anyone served with a foreclosure action or any court action contact an attorney. But for defendants who represent themselves he said the website can be of major assistance. All the procedures are spelled out, and all the necessary forms are there, he said. In addition to the designated section and tweaks on the mediation process, McGrady implemented policies that: Assign all foreclosure cases filed after Jan. 1 of this year to the sections that have absorbed other civil cases previously assigned to Minkoff. Utilize the authority of magistrates hired into temporary positions to help manage foreclosure cases by conducting evidentiary hearings and case management conferences, setting trial dates and recommending case dispositions. Institute procedures with which the Court will more closely monitor the progression of cases from filing to the sale of foreclosedon property, including lenders repeated cancellations of scheduled sales. Two significant changes that are now in effect under the law signed by Gov. Rick Scott June 4 are: 1) Lienholders including homeowner and condominium associations are now empowered to foreclose on properties, meaning they have the same standing as lenders in moving toward a trial date that could result in a foreclosure sale. 2) With status equal to the lenders, lienholders will be able to expedite the process without the lenders doing anything. For cases filed under the new rules and not responded to within the 20 days, either the lienholder or the lender can initiate an order for the defendant to show cause why the Court should not enter a final judgment. All of these procedures are designed to lower the number of backlogged cases, McGrady said. Lack of action, the responsibility of the lender/attorneys, clogs the courts and makes it more difficult to serve businesses and others who are litigants in the civil law sections of our Circuit. McGrady strongly advocates that defendants in foreclosure cases take advantage of mediation. Its the best way to seek a settlement, especially for those homeowners who feel frustrated by the lenders unwillingness to speak with them, he said.

Now it is set to open and members of the Historical Society are confident people are going to like what they see. Invited guests had a sneak preview of the museum on Friday, June 21. The official opening of the Indian Rocks Historical Museum will be on Saturday, June 29. Im going to be very excited and happy when it opens, said Wayne Ayers, president of the society. Im sure people are going to like it and even help us get the word out. We want to make history exciting and we want this to be a destination for Indian Rocks Beach. It is going to be wonderful and Im thrilled. All that excitement didnt come without hard work, however. Project goordinator Donna Valery and treasurer Nancy Ayers have been working steadily since the renovation was finished last summer. Nancy and I have been working 40 plus hours every week for the past 3 months, said Valery. Others have been working hard too and thats a lot of hours for volunteers. Work on the expansion began in 2011 and took a year to complete. One of the hold-ups was that the entire structure had to be elevated and leveled. The city of Indian Rocks Beach owns the building and paid for the expansion, while the Historical Society paid for the plans and ongoing costs for the operation. The society took back control of the premises in the summer of 2012 and thats when the work began. We realized the place was full of stuff that we didnt need, said Valery. We probably got rid of about one third of stuff that never belonged there in the first place. We had stuff from Michigan and Ohio and Indiana and some of it wasnt even historical. What was it doing there? Valery answered her own question when she explained that anytime someone brought in an old article a volunteer would accept it, then not knowing what to do with it, the society just stored it away. There was even stuff there that was made in China, she said. We had a garage sale and got rid of it all and that left us with not as many artifacts. Then we had to research everything we had and made sure it was authentic. It took a lot of work. To help with that work, according to Ayers, the society hired consultant Patti Smith of Frina Design in Tampa. Among her clients were Heritage Village and MOSI. We hired her to guide us through the process, he said. She has worked with many museums and she was able to help us focus on how we wanted to present our artifacts in an interesting and organized way. Nancy Ayers said setting up the new museum was a daunting task. That is one of the reasons why we hired Smith, she said. She helped us decide what to use. She helped us organize tourist related things in one area, fishing in another and how to organize and lay out the room. Ayers main contribution to the new setup was finding pictures to go with the stories they wanted to tell. Then writing those stories in a concise enough fashion so patrons will want to stop and take the time to read them. I spent a lot of time, it seems like forever, going through pictures and matching them with the stories, she said. I would look for pictures online, go to E-Bay and research old newspaper photos. The process was made more difficult because of the history of Indian Rocks, said Ayers. Our history goes back farther than other beach communities, she said, We were one of only three communities along the beach at one time. There was Indian Rocks, Pass-A-Grille, and Clearwater Beach. Just talking to Nancy Ayers is a history lesson in itself. For example Indian Rocks used to encompass part of the mainland, roughly where Belleair and parts of Largo are now. That is why the name of the museum is the Indian Rocks Historical Museum and not the Indian Rocks Beach Museum. Most people dont know that back in 1914 there used to be a train that came out here to the Beach, she said. There was a spur line off the main line that went to Anona, then crossed the Narrows and came to Indian Rocks Beach. The train always had to back over the bridge because there was no room to turn around. It brought tourists over from Tampa and still today many Tampa people own condos in Indian Rocks Beach. The railroad was the Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad, the T&G, which Ayers said was often referred to as the Tug and Grunt railroad. Eventually the service was abandoned and the tracks torn up by storms in the 1920s. Even the museum building itself has an interesting history. It began as a beach cottage owned by the family of Mayor R.B. Johnson, said Wayne Ayers. Carl Moseley owned it and lived in it during the Second World War because he wanted to get out of Tampa, afraid that the Germans were going to bomb the city. He was Johnsons maternal grandfather and he built the fishing pier in Indian Rocks Beach in 1959. It was wiped out by Hurricane Helena in 1985. Moseley eventually had an offer for the beach property and wanted to sell it. He offered the cottage to the city on the condition that they would turn it into a museum. The city accepted the building and moved it to aIndian Rocks Beach Historical Museum set to open June 29location near City Hall. In 2002 it was moved to its present location in Chic-A-Si Park. Ayers said the long wait is finally over. Were relieved to get it finished, he said. I have wanted to make this a destination. I want us to be the best small museum around and there has been a total transformation with all the latest museum techniques. Valery says the work has been worth it. Weve been working non-stop. Weve set up 16 different exhibits. Well soon be heading toward divorce court because our husbands never see us, she said, laughing. It is a labor of love because we want to do something worthwhile. There is still plenty to do; it will always be a work in progress. In the end it will be something this community here and this area of Florida will be real proud of.Photo by BRIAN GOFFIRB residents Diane Flagg, left, and Jo Nocera look over one of the exhibits at the newly renovated Indian Rocks Historical Museum.

The harvest of snook in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters has been closed since early 2010, when a cold snap negatively impacted the population, particularly juvenile snook. In 2012, the commission extended the temporary closure through Aug. 31, 2013, in an effort to further protect this important species and give it time to recover more fully from the cold snap. The commissions Fish and Wildlife Research Institute confirms that Gulf snook were affected by the cold weather of 2010. Once reopened, the stock should continue to rebuild within a relatively short time to 2010 stock levels, thanks to management efforts such as regular closed seasons and the slot limit, which protects both juveniles and the more productive larger fish. When the Gulf recreational harvest reopens Sept. 1, all bag limits, size limits, gear restrictions and closed seasons will be in effect. This includes the one-fish-per-person, per-day bag limit, the 28to 33-inch total length slot limit and the two annual closures in Gulf waters, which are from Dec. 1 through the end of February and May 1 through Aug. 31. The Atlantic recreational harvest of snook also will open Sept. 1. This season closes annually from June 1 through Aug. 31 and from Dec. 15 through Jan. 31. The slot limit for Atlantic harvest is 28 to 32 inches total length. The next stock assessment for snook is scheduled for 2015.Basketball team going to nationalsThe Team Under Pressure 9th Grade Elite Soldiers, under the Clearwater Basketball Club, are headed to the 10th Grade Nationals and 9th Grade Showcase in July.

This catch-and-release proposal was adopted in recognition of the fact that the economic and fishing value of bonefish and tarpon greatly exceed their value as food fishes. The following changes will go into effect Sept. 1 in state and federal waters off Florida: All harvest of tarpon will be eliminated, with the exception of the harvest or possession of a single tarpon when in pursuit of an IGFA record and in conjunction with a tarpon tag. Tarpon tags will be limited to one per person, per year (except for charter boat captains). Transport or shipment of tarpon becomes limited to one fish per person. One fish per vessel limit is created for tarpon. Gear used for tarpon will be limited to hook-and-line only. People will be allowed to temporarily possess a tarpon for photography, measurement of length and girth and scientific sampling, with the stipulation that tarpon more than 40 inches must remain in the water. Tarpon regulations will extend into federal waters. The bonefish tournament exemption permit is eliminated. This exemption allows tournament anglers with the proper permit to temporarily possess bonefish for transport to a tournament scale. The commission also approved modifying the tarpon tag program by eliminating the current reporting requirements and shifting the start and end date for when the tarpon tag is valid from July through June to a calendar year, January through December. These rules will be changed in FWC code and will go into effect Sept. 1. The commission also moved forward with a two-part proposal that would include adding language to the current statewide snagging definition and modifying what types of gear could be used to target tarpon in Boca Grande Pass. The proposal would add language that prohibits catching or attempting to catch tarpon that have not been attracted or enticed by the anglers gear to the snagging definition that applies statewide. This change would apply to tarpon fishing statewide. The second part of the proposal would prohibit fishing with gear that has a weight attached to the bottom of a hook. This change would apply to fishing for all species year-round within Boca Grande Pass. This proposal will be brought back for a final public hearing at the Sept. 4-6 meeting in Pensacola.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, June 27, 2013Dust mites wreak household havocDust mites are eating me out of house and home. They were even embedded in my pillows, until I took decisive action. So I threw the pillows away only because I didnt have time to take them to a hazardous materials collection point. I had those pillows for so long; I dont remember how I acquired them. I seem to have a penchant for accumulating my mothers hand-me-downs or her dogs. Washed my drapes. Bought a new mattress cover and AC filter thats guaranteed for life. Cleaned my entertainment center, tabletops, baseboards, windowsills and chessboard. Threw all kinds of garments in the washer and other stuff. Too bad my bedroom painting wont fit in the machine. Consulted with Dr. Google, which is usually a mistake. All this was precipitated by three months of sinus problems, colds, allergies and relatives. A few weeks ago, my ENT doctor did some exploring in my nose with an apparatus slightly smaller than a minesweeper and found a small benign polyp wedged in the bridge of my left nostril. Not sure where it came from. Perhaps dust mites put it there. I certainly didnt. My dad always said never to put anything smaller than a football in your ear. And I darn sure wouldnt put anything smaller than that in my nose, such as a fishhook, or whatever else is fashionable these days. But the good doctor said there was hope. He prescribed some steroid spray that is supposed to shrink the polyp to smithereens in time and clear the crud out of my nose. Sorry, TMI. Im feeling better, but Im still wary of dust mites wreaking havoc in my household. For some reason, I have a history of being tormented by wildlife too small for the human eye to detect. Im a scabies survivor. About 20 years ago, six months after staying in a bargain-priced motel, a rash afflicted me between my fingers that eventually spread throughout my body. The doctor said I had a bad case of bed bugs requiring a prescription drug that came with a thousand disclaimers. I think it was called Shock and Awe. It worked, but I ended up throwing away bedding and washing clothes a hundred times especially my most sacred Florida Gators T-shirt. Fleas and roaches are a nuisance, but even PETA wouldnt vouch for bed bugs. I dont wish bed bugs on anyone, except the IRS. So if I cant see dust mites how do I know I have them? Because the American Lung Association says that roughly four out of five homes in the United States have detectable levels of dust mite allergen in at least one bed. And since being hopeless at house cleaning put me at great risk of a dust mite infestation, I must assume the obvious. Death to dust mites. Im determined. Time again to visit the Internet bloggers. You are always entitled to their opinions: If I am not mistaken, I believe putting things in the dryer on hot and running a few minutes will also kill dust mites. I do this with my childrens stuffed animals. PETA would frown on stuffed animal abuse. My allergist suggested washing in Pine Sol. I add about 1/8 cup to each load. And I use the citrus scent, so I dont smell like a tree. I certainly dont want my sacred Florida Gators T-shirt to smell like a tree. Fear not, the war on dust mites continues. When somebody comes up with a sure-fire inexpensive way to rid the household of dust mites, Ill be the first to know about it. I have a nose for news.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@TBNweekly.com.LETTERSCentral parade theme should remainEditor: The Seminole City Council apparently has joined the trend toward political correctness by renaming the Christmas parade to a holiday parade. Lets keep the date of the parade close to Christmas and hold it during the day, like the Pow Wow parade. This would mitigate the lighting issues and help with the weather factor. Other religious groups should be invited to take part ... those that observe Hanukkah, Kwanzaa etc. But the central theme of the parade has been the Christmas observance as governments and employers recognize that. This should remain. Roney Sorensen, Seminole Emotions of the moment cloud judgmentEditor: As always seems to be the case, the media and the American people, when faced with seemingly scandalous or politically motivated revelations that suggest some wrongdoing, allow the emotions of the moment to cloud their judgment in response to the information. The fact that we invariably modify our position, as more concrete information becomes available never seems to deter us from first taking a shot from the hip position. In reality, what we hear initially is only what we want to hear; facts be damned. I implore all Americans at least question the veracity of the content of the message before you establish an opinion on an issue. A good case in point is the issue of government data mining, and the suggestion this violates the Fourth Amendment and our right to privacy. The oh my God response echoing throughout the land was exactly the reaction one could expect based on our track record. It results from, and therefore reflects, a superficial analysis of the rather sketchy information presented. One is moved to wonder had we taken a more analytic approach when exploring this issue how different our reaction might have been. There was a time before the dawn of the age of mass media and electronic communication when Americans approached situations like this by asking questions and seeking answers, not merely forming opinions that defy logic. In this case how many of us asked who initiated this program and who authorized it? It should be noted two different administrations, one Republican and one Democratic, approved it. What data is being collected and who has access to it? Who has oversight and are they exercising their authority? How often is the program reviewed? Is the data that is digitally farmed used solely to identify problem areas or people, or are those collecting it using it to peer into the life and habits of John and Jane Doe? Is there a program to prevent intrusion into, and in due time permanently dispose of the data that does not reflect on the issues that it was instituted to defect? This is, what all of us, Congress included, should have been busy asking instead of trying to figure who we could blame, even before identifying the true nature of the anomaly confronting us. There is one final question we should be asking. If government had been engaged in programs like these at the beginning of the 21st century, is it possible 9/11 would have no more significance on the American psyche today than 9/10 or 9/12? Robert Shaw Madeira Beach If I were king: Heres some ideasFantasizing (also known as daydreaming) is one of the simplest, cheapest and most rewarding pursuits known. Although its possible to become addicted to fantasy, most people dont. Reality keeps intruding. Its hard to fantasize your way out of an overdue property tax bill, or the voice of a police officer saying, Would you please step out of your car and tell me why youve been running through traffic lights for the past six miles? Many fantasies revolve around money, ego, sex, revenge, high attainment, fattening foods or fame. Also power. What would it be like to have absolute power? Wow, what a trip that could be. Recently I got to thinking about that, and several ideas popped up. If I were king, here are some changes Id make. 1. When Congress votes on whether or not to send our troops off to war, ballots will be cast only by senators or representatives who have actually experienced combat, or whose children or grandchildren are in uniform or subject to the draft. Im tired of watching lifetime civilians send our uniformed men and women off to fight and die, or to come home maimed and often insane to a Congress that wont adequately pay for their care. 2. In bars, restaurants and nightclubs, all alcoholic drinks will have a 10 percent tax added to the bill. This money will go into a DD (designated driver) fund. This will be used to pay sober designated drivers to drive a drinking car-owner home and then return via taxi to his or her place of employment. Driving while intoxicated will be punished by 16 weeks confinement in hard labor camps in the forests of Georgia and Maine. 3. Smoking will be permitted in public buildings, but only in small (20x20), unventilated, nonair-conditioned smoking rooms. You like to smoke? Hey, baby, well give you smoke. 4. Public cell phone conversations will be permitted, but only in the designated smoking rooms (see No. 3, above). 5. TV and radio advertisements will last no more than 20 seconds. 6. Laugh tracks will be prohibited on all TV sitcoms. 7. Motorists who drive in the left-hand lane without good cause will be required to listen to three hours of uninterrupted rap music or lectures on Etruscan art. 8. After fulfilling strict professional requirements, schoolteachers, police officers and firefighters will receive compensation at least 50 percent higher than that of the average elected official in the state. 9. Restaurant patrons who insult or otherwise abuse servers will be subject to immediate ejection from the premises. The same goes for servers who address customers as you guys or who call old people honey or hon. 10. Non-English-speaking immigrants to the U.S. will have their new citizenship withheld for one year, during which time they will be required to acquire a working familiarity with American English. Computer-based language programs will be provided. The programs will have 12 monthly levels, each more complex than the previous one. Successful completion of each level will entitle the student to a meaningful reward, such as a thesaurus or a recording of Renee Flemings music. 11. Persons convicted of abusing children or animals will be placed on rafts in the waters of abandoned stone quarries and left there for up to five days at a time. Their only food will be month-old sushi. 12. Unnecessary excessive noise from whatever source will be prohibited. Violators will be branded with a temporary N tattooed on their foreheads for six weeks, during which all bystanders are urged to sneer at the offender. 13. Substantial financial rewards will be given to playwrights, novelists, comedians and other creative artists who produce highquality work that does not contain the F-word or bathroom and barnyard jokes. 14. Anyone convicted of falsely claiming disability payments from the government or employers will be sentenced to a month of walking backwards across the mountains of West Virginia. 15. Severance and bonus pay for highranking financial company executives will be limited to one-tenth of their current or departure salaries. No executive will be paid a salary more than 50 times higher than that of his personal assistant or the chief janitor in his office building. All compensation above that level will be diverted to a trust fund intended to support investors or other persons who have been screwed by banks, brokerages and hedge funds. I doubt if many of the changes Ive listed above could, would or should be adopted. But thats one of the joys of fantasizing you snap your fingers and it all disappears.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Many fantasies revolve around money, ego, sex, revenge, high attainment, fattening foods or fame. Also power. What would it be like to have absolute power? Wow, what a trip that could be.Recently, Bill Clinton warned that President Barack Obama risked looking like a wuss and a total fool for not acting sooner on Syria. Shortly thereafter but two months after Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel charged that strongman Bashar Assad had crossed a red line in using chemical weapons against his own people the White House announced that in response to Assads use of sarin, the administration would send small arms to help Syrian rebels. Allow me to stand up for the president. Obama didnt look like a fool for not rushing into the Syrian mess at the behest of Beltway foreign policy do-gooders. To the contrary, Obama has shown himself to be the rare Washington leader who learned something from Egypt and Libya. No need to touch that stove too often. In 2011, during the heady days of mass protests in Cairos Tahrir Square, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came forward to urge Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak a U.S. ally to begin immediately serious negotiations on a peaceful and orderly transition. Now Her Stateness looks totally foolish. Because she had Arab Spring fever, an ally is in chains, and Egypt has new leadership, the Muslim Brotherhood. At least America had a national interest in ousting Libyan despot Moammar Gadhafi, who ordered the 1988 Pan Am Flight 103 bombing, which left 270 dead. But with the U.S. military spread thin from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the political ideology of Libyan rebels in question, Obama preferred to leave NATO in charge of the air war over Libya. A White House aide famously dubbed this strategy leading from behind. When Libyans killed Gadhafi, Madam Secretary paraphrased Julius Caesar, quipping, We came; we saw; he died. She has shown less bluster since a terrorist attack in Benghazi left Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead. The Libyan non-war doesnt feel like victory anymore. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has faulted Obama for pledging arms after 100-plus Syrians were killed by chemical weapons but not earlier in a civil war that has claimed 93,000 lives. Give this to McCain: He has the moral high ground. I felt the same way about the atrocities committed by Iraqs Saddam Hussein. Ten years after the Iraq War began, the country is more stable but at a cost so terrible that Americans dont want to walk that path again. The Obama administration wisely stipulates that there will be no American boots on Syrian ground. Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes asserted that Washington expects U.S. arms will not fall into the hands of extremists.The president also has resisted calls to order a no-fly zone. He would rather spend tax dollars on nation building at home than on civil war management abroad. Theres this view among the foreign policy elite that Obama has to be tough on Syria in order to telegraph to world leaders that American outrage builds at a penalty. In Egypt, the penalty was that a terrorist organization won power, and in Libya, the penalty put more firepower into the hands of hostile militias. By all means, Mr. President, send arms to the Syrian rebels. Do what you have to do to keep Assad and Hezbollah and Iran and Russia from winning. But dont feel you have to give in to the risky demands of the foreign policy scolds. Remember: We came; we saw; he died.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

For the first five months of 2013, the airport served 435,575 passengers, an increase of 11 percent over 2012 passengers from January through May. Allegiant accounts for about 90 percent of passengers and recently began service to its 25th destination, Asheville, N.C. The growth is largely due to Allegiants addition of new destinations, larger capacity on their aircraft, and the growth in tourism in the St. Pete-Clearwater market. Allegiant began service at PIE in 2006 and has consistently added new destinations every year, creating new tourism markets and opportunities for our local travelers. Our recent rebranding launched our slogan Tampa Bay The Easy Way and Allegiant is a vital partner in making travel easy and affordable for visitors and our local community, said Noah Lagos, airport director, in a press release. Magazine recognizes Sutton as Game ChangerCLEARWATER Surveillance Magazine, the global security industry magazine, recently named self-defense expert Chris Sutton of Clearwater a Game Changer. Sutton is the creator of Cobra-Defense. Cobra is a comprehensive self-defense program that is taught across the nation. Sutton drew upon his decades of tactical training as a maximum security guard, Largo street cop, Pinellas County Sheriff, and black belt to create Cobra-Defense as a law enforcement based self-defense program for civilians. Cobra is presented as single day camps for both adults and children, but is most popular as a 10week police academy for regular people. Cobra also offers a unique Active Shooter Response Plan. The Active Shooter Response Plan workshop physically takes attendees through simulated active shooter scenes and teaches tactical responses in a step-by-step series of drills and scenarios. John Graden, the executive director of the Martial Arts Teachers Association is not surprised Sutton is being recognized. He named Sutton the MATA 2012 Instructor of the Year. I have spent nearly 20 years researching self-defense systems that we could bring forth to help martial arts schools improve their self-defense training, Graden said in a press release. Cobra is the best system Ive seen. Mainly because it is not martial arts based but law enforcement based which makes it more grounded in reality.Wawa hosts fundraiser for USO Tampa BayPINELLAS PARK Several Tampa Bay area Wawa locations are sponsoring the Show the Troops You Care Promotion through July 7, including the store at 8519 Gandy Blvd., Pinellas Park. Wawa convenience stores are hosting various promotions to support active duty military in the Tampa Bay community. Part of the proceeds will go to USO Tampa Bay to help with programs such as the Welcome Center, Day Room at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital and United Through Reading. When customers are checking out at the register, they may simply drop extra change in the coin collection box or add a donation to their total purchase using one of the tear sheets. By donating spare change in the coin collection box, customers are helping USO Tampa Bay. Cooters earns awards CLEARWATER Cooters Restaurant and Bar recently added to its string of awards. Cooters was the winner of the 2013 Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week Award for Best Entre. The establishment also placed second for both Best Appetizer and Best Overall Experience.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COMNO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese Owner Summer Safety for SeniorsDiane Genovese Owner Make sure your senior drinks plenty of fluids throughout the day, even if he or she doesnt feel thirsty. 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. Health 15A Health newsMcDowell Orthodontics newly founded Smile for a Lifetime chapterSEMINOLE Dr. Ernest McDowell, of McDowell Orthodontics, recently announced his newly founded Pinellas County chapter of Smile for a Lifetime as a way to give back to the community and invest in the future of under-served children. Through this nonprofit organization, McDowell provides scholarships for orthodontic treatment to 8 to 10 local children each year on a completely pro bono basis. At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation, the mission is to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and the community. The foundation will award one set of braces per month to individuals that could not otherwise afford orthodontic treatment. McDowell has recruited a local board of directors to help inform our community on the benefits of Smile for a Lifetime and to help determine the recipients. Information and applications are available at www.mcdowellorthodontics.com.Concussion program setCLEARWATER Sports medicine physician Ted Farrar, M.D., will host a free presentation on preventing and managing a concussion in active youth and adults on Wednesday, July 10, 6 p.m., at the Aging Well Center at the Long Center, 1501 N.

The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization. In addition to the CAAS accreditations, Sunstars operations dispatch center is ACE accredited by the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch. Also, the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport System accredits the Pinellas County Paramedics Plus operation, Sunstar, for its critical care transport services.

Each of them has a project in Mexico City, either to work or to escape. They all have some kind of secret, not just the Mexican. Their defenselessness in the face of danger provokes a general catharsis among the passengers and the crew, and this ends up becoming the best way to escape from the idea of death. This catharsis, developed in the tone of a riotous, moral comedy, fills the time with sensational confessions that help them forget the anguish of the moment.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.Rated: RTwo mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.CopperheadGenre: DramaCast: Billy Campbell, Angus Macfadyen and Peter Fonda Director: Ron Maxwell Not rated Upstate New York, 1862 inspired by actual events: Dairy farmer Abner Beech despises slavery but just as passionately opposes this war that President Lincoln is waging, all in the name of union, hundreds of miles away. Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is what is known as a Copperhead. A local anti-slavery zealot named Hagadorn stirs up the town against him, first with pamphlets, then with rumors that prompt shopkeepers to boycott Abners dairy products, next by coaxing the community to shun his family. Worse, Abners son falls in love with Hagadorns daughter marching off to war to please her, and goes missing in action. Hagadorns wild-eyed rhetoric ignites a torch-bearing mob to descend upon Abners farm, placing all that both men love in mortal danger. Copperhead is a parable of the Civil War and perhaps for our own time.Im So Excited!Genre: Comedy Cast: Carlos Areces, Raul Arevalo, Javier Cmara, Lola Dueas, Carmen Machi, Laya Mart, Cecilia Roth, Hugo Silva, Miguel ngel Silvestre and Blanca Surez Director: Pedro Almodvar Rated: R A very varied group of people are in a precarious situation aboard a plane flying to Mexico City. A technical failure (a kind of justifiable negligence, even though it sounds contradictory, but thats what human actions are) has endangered the lives of the passengers on Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots, hardened, experienced professionals are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. The travelers in business class consist of a pair of newlyweds, partygoers, worn out by their wedding celebration; a financier and embezzler; unscrupulous in business but also a father afflicted by his daughters estrangement; an inveterate Don Juan with an uneasy conscience who is trying to say goodbye to one of his women (girlfriends); a rural psychic; a queen of the gosOPENING, from page 1B Photo by PAOLA ARDIZZONI & EMILIO PEREDAAbove, Carlos Areces, left, stars as Fajas and Ral Arvalo as Ulloa in Im So Excited!, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics.

The critically acclaimed songwriter released her debut CD Call Me Angel for Blues in 2007. Black songs inspire with stories of life and love. Her sultry, powerful vocals weave potent tales within sumptuous melodies and rhythms. As Blacks fan base continues to grow, she performs often at major music festivals, concert halls and select venues. Her passionate live performances are intensified by the superb musicianship of her world-class band which features Dave Eichenberger on guitar, Michael Johnn on keys, Father Bill Spicuglia on bass and Frankie Timpanelli on drums. Another side of Dunedins historyPinellas residents are well aware of Dunedins proud Scottish roots. The city showcases its Scottish heritage at two annual events: The Dunedin Highland Games and the Dunedin Celtic Festival. It also celebrates its background with the annual Military Tattoo, an exhibition of marching bands, bagpipe bands, brass bands, highland dancers and more. But there is another side of Dunedins history. Like much of Pinellas, the land in and around Dunedin once was covered with seemingly endless orange groves.Several years ago, Dunedin resident and artist Steven Spathelf decided to remind people that Dunedins history is tied to those orange groves to growing citrus trees and packing crates filled with oranges bound for markets around Florida and elsewhere. The citrus industry was important to Dunedin from the late 1800s through the middle of the 20th century.The Skinner and Douglas families were huge names in this industry. As an artist, Spathelf particularly found himself drawn to the beautifully designed labels that were made to go on each side of the fruit crates. The Skinner and Douglas families of Dunedin had many such labels designed. Visitors to the Dunedin Historical Museum can view some of these vintage labels. Spathelf has admired, collected and has been inspired by the designs of these vintage fruit crate labels for years. In 2009, Spathelf and fellow resident Marsha Goins got up early one morning, stealthily invaded the downtown area and secretly painted a series of loose oranges around the district in an attempt to remind city residents about the importance of citrus. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and the scheme quickly led local merchants to create a festival revolving around the concept. With the help of the Dunedin Historical Museum and the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce, the Dunedin Orange Festival was born. The inaugural event was presented July 3, 2010. The Dunedin Orange Festival serves as a fundraiser for the Dunedin Historical Society and The Dunedin Chamber Foundation. The fourth annual Orange Festival proceeds will help enable the Dunedin Historical Museum to follow its mission to educate and preserve the communitys rich cultural heritage. Funds are used to maintain educational programming such as museum exhibits, traveling exhibits to local schools and community centers and create exciting projects for summer camp students. These programs directly serve and benefit the students and community of Dunedin. For information, visit dunedino rangefestival.com.Julie Black headlines this years Dunedin Orange Festival July 6.

According to www.census.gov, On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. The website goes on to list a number of interesting facts, such as: The estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation in 1776 was 2.5 million. The nations estimated population on this July 4 will be 316.2 million. Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston comprised the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson, regarded as the strongest and most eloquent writer, wrote most of the document. John Hancock, President of the Second Continental Congress, was the first signer of the Declaration of Independence. Two future presidents signed: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Both men died on the 50th anniversary of signing, on July 4, 1826. In 2012, the dollar value of U.S. imports of American flags was $3.8 million. The vast majority of this amount ($3.6 million) was for U.S. flags made in China. The value of fireworks imported from China in 2012 totaled $218.2 million. As of March 1, 2013, there were 65.9 million hogs and pigs in the United States. Chances are that the pork hot dogs and sausages consumed on the Fourth of July originated in Iowa: The Hawkeye State was home to 20.3 million hogs and pigs. North Carolina boasted 8.9 million and Minnesota had 7.8 million. As always, this most American of holidays will be marked by parades, fireworks and backyard barbecues across the country. Locally, to celebrate the event, displays of fireworks, parades, concerts and other events are planned.

Harry KC Wayne Casey started KC & The Sunshine Band out of a Miami record store in 1973. Forty years later, his Sunshine Sound still gets audiences worldwide out of their seats and dancing. The bands brass-oriented disco flavor was developed through KCs exposure to pop, reggae and Latin music and served as the backbone to their iconic hits Get Down Tonight, Thats the Way (I Like it), and Shake Your Booty. With over 30 albums to the bands name, their music has long survived the disco era, selling over 100 million albums, and is featured on more than 200 motion picture soundtracks. Even with the bands songs played in arenas worldwide, KC has never forgotten his roots. He is proud to have never moved farther than 10 miles away from his hometown of Hialeah, saying, Why move from an area that not only do I love, but owe so much to? Nearly four decades after first gaining notoriety, KC & The Sunshine Band is still going strong and continues to perform its enduring music in venues around the country. Single game tickets for Rays 2013 regular season home games are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Rays Tampa Store at 400 N. Tampa St.; and the Gate 1 Tropicana Field Box Office, as well as over the phone at 888-FAN-RAYS and 1-800-745-3000, or online at raysbaseball.com.
