BY TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Construction is underway at Seminole Fire Rescues Fire Station No. 30, located at 8971 Starkey Road. The renovations, which began April 15, should be completed by mid-September, said Assistant Fire Chief Terry Tokarz, and the station remains in use during the construction. The station has one fire truck and staffs three to four people per shift, he added. The project is expected to cost $948,000 and the expenses will be divided between the County (about 71.35 percent of the cost) and Seminole (about 28.65 percent.) The city, which hired the architectural firm Mason Blau & Associates, Inc. to design the project, is using capital reserves to pay for its portion of the updates, Tokarz said. The construction is part of an effort to bring the 37year-old building up to current code so that it complies with new hurricane standards and regulations, Tokarz said. In addition to new hurricanestrength doors, the roof of the station will be hardened and reinforcements put in place so that it is better able to withstand winds up to 154 miles per hour, the equivalent of a Category 2 storm. During a hurricane, people need our help so we need to make sure that were able to still operate, Tokarz said. Also, because of its age, the building needed substantial renovations to meet current fire station designs as defined in the UnifiedRenovations underway at Fire Station No. 30 Left, sleeping quarters for the fire staff have been updated during renovations, with separate bedrooms constructed in place of an open sleeping space.

Page 13A. Council OKs traffic light agreement By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE At its July 9 meeting, the City Council approved the continuation of an interlocal agreement with Pinellas County for the maintenance and repair of traffic lights within city limits. The current agreement expires on Sept. 30; the new five-year agreement will begin on Oct. 1. The estimated cost for the project is $96,998, said City Manager Frank Edmunds, with $14,994 of that expense set aside for preemptive devices for the fire department that turn signals green as emergency vehicles approach. According to the agreement, the county will be responsible for maintenance of traffic control devices within Seminole, including scheduled preventative maintenance as well as response maintenance in instances of breakdowns or malfunctions. Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn brought up the possibility of red light cameras eventually being installed.

Budget includes millage increases By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER As advertised, Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala presented the proposed budget for fiscal year 2014-2015 at a regular commission meeting July 9. There were few surprises, as the commission and staff have been working together on the budget direction for the last several months. LaSala did present one new concept, the possibility of establishing a Service Level Continuation Account. LaSala balanced the coming years nearly $1.76 billion budget using a countywide millage rate increase of 0.2650 mills for the general fund, pushing that millage up from 5.0105 to 5.2755. The millage rate for the unincorporated area would remain at 2.0867 mills. The FY2014 budget is $33.2 million more than FY2013 and reflects a net increase in operating, capital, reserves and enterprise functions. The proposed general fund budget, which pays for most operating costs, is $568,656 a $10.2 million increase from the current year. LaSala said the increase was due to the Legislatures change in employer contributions to the Florida Retirement System and an employee pay increases needed to keep the county competitive in the labor market. Most county employees have not had a pay raise for five years. The proposed budget includes a 2.8 percent across-the-board increase for all eligible employees. LaSala also proposed a 0.0732 mill increase for the Emergency Services Fund, upping that millage rate to 0.9890. Commissioner Janet Long asked about the increase for the EMS fund. Last time you said we would balance the budget with a portion of reserves, she said. She urged the commission to take action that would solve the rising cost of providing emergency medical services instead of continuing to raise the millage rate each year. A work session to discuss a consultants report on EMS changes is scheduled on July 19 and Aug. 1. LaSala said changing the set 25 percent for EMS reserves would be a decision for the commission to make.

4A Seminole Beacon, July 18, 2013unchanged. He said if the commission continued to use reserves to balance the budget, they would be gone by 2019. Rate increases also are coming for the Gandy, Pinellas Park and Safety Harbor fire districts. Other changes include establishing the East Lake Library Services District with a millage rate of 0.25 mills. LaSala advocates leaving the remaining $12 million in the Service Level Stabilization account and consideration of funding a Service Level Continuation Account to be used to sustain levels of service without having to make cuts or raise taxes during the next recession. A recession will occur, he said. Thats how our economy works. He said it would take discipline to continue following a strict budget and not grow programs as revenue returned to the countys coffers. We would live within our means, exercise fiscal discipline and plan for the future, he said. He said it would take a slight increase in the millage of 0.2154 mills to increase the likelihood and the ability to sustain a level of service that the citizens expect for the forecast period (10 years). It would put us in a position of great flexibility and require great discipline, he said. Commissioner Susan Latvala asked how LaSala planned to get the message out to the public about the Service Level Continuation Account. How will we inform them and convince them this is a good thing to do? No one wants new taxes, she said. LaSala said the headlines needed to be sustainability and a comparison of level of service to quality of life whats in it for me. This is something no other government in Florida has practiced, he said. Its about protecting the future generations, our children and our grandchildren, Long added. Seel brought up her idea of a dedicated millage for paving roads, which she would like to take from the MSTU millage. She asked LaSala to explore the notion before the budget work session. Honestly people expect certain things basic to qualify of life, and a paved road is one of them, she said. Commissioners can discuss the proposed budget and make changes through the public hearings in September. Budget work sessions are scheduled on July 16 and 30. Final proposed millage rates must be approved July 30 to go out with the Property Appraisers Truth in Millage notices scheduled to go out Aug. 19. The final budget hearing is Sept. 17. The fiscal year begins Oct. 1. To calculate the estimated amount of property tax, multiply the assessed value of the property, available at www.pcpao.org, by the millage rate and divide by 1,000. For example, the tax for a home assessed at $100,000 with a millage rate of 5.2755 would be $527.55 in FY2014 compared with $501.05 for the current year. To view a copy of the proposed budget, visit www.PinellasCounty .org. Look for the link under special interests. BUDGET, from page 1AEdmunds said that though they are county roads, the City Council would be the only jurisdiction able to establish red light cameras at intersections. Councilor Chris Burke pointed out that the City of St. Petersburg is trying to get the county to extend the time of yellow lights, which is something hed like to see in Seminole. A longer yellow light is a safer yellow light, he said. Edmunds said it wouldnt be so simple to extend yellow lights because extending one light takes time away from other lights. At the same meeting, the council designated Councilor Jim Quinn as the citys voting delegate during the 86th Florida League of Cities Annual Business Conference in Orlando Aug. 15-17. Quinn, Barnhorn, Mayor Leslie Waters and Councilor Bob Matthews will all be attending the conference. Barnhorn, who represents the city in the Florida League of Cities, is running for the second vice president position of the organization. The council also approved the request of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to once again use Seminole City Park as a pit stop during its annual three-day Race for a Cure event. The requested date for use of Seminole City Park is Saturday, Oct. 26, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. It gets a lot of people into our park who may not be there otherwise, Waters said. COUNCIL, from page 1A CorrectionA story in the July 11 edition included incorrect information provided by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office about the population of the town of Belleair. The population is 3,897. Fire Lieutenant David Hudak, 25-year veteran of Seminole Fire Rescue, retired July 14.25-year Fire Rescue veteran retiresSEMINOLE On July 14, 25-year veteran Fire Lieutenant David Hudak and noted EMS expert retired from Seminole Fire Rescue. Hudak started as a volunteer firefighter with Seminole Volunteer Fire Department in the 1980s with the maintenance division and transferred to the fire department on July 12, 1988 as a firefighter and EMT. He immediately jumped at the chance to go to paramedic school and began his path to become one of the most knowledgeable and influential paramedics in Pinellas County and the state of Florida. Recently, Hudak served Seminole Fire Rescue as a firemedic, lieutenant and acting district chief. He also has been a member of the Pinellas County HAZMAT team and EMS Quality Assurance committee, and served as a medical officer for the Pinellas County Medical Directors Office. Hudak also filled the role of EMS supply coordinator for the department, where he was instrumental in making sure Seminole Fire Rescue complied with EMS state statutes and Pinellas County protocol. Photography is a passion of Hudaks, and he excelled in documenting the history of SFR. His photos have even received statewide awards. His service continued on to the Seminole Professional Firefighters, where Hudak coordinated the annual Local 2896 Holiday party and the Santa Express for many years. He also proudly served as a member of the United States Coast Guard. Hudak is also known for his care and compassion toward those in our community, whether on a structure fire, a public assist, or a medical call, providing sincere empathy and resources that only someone who really cares about people can provide. Chief George Bessler said, David has left a proud footprint in just about every aspect of our department and I sincerely thank Lt. David Hudak for his contributions to our department, our personnel, our community, our county, our state and our nation.Local doctor elected chair of medical boardSEMINOLE Roger K.

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 single-parent 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. To inquire about how to become a Big Sister, contact volunteer recruiter Samantha at SamanthaF@bbbspc.org.

Suite 150 Largo, FL 33774 71813 County extends moratorium on high prescribers By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved an amendment July 9 to its code regulating physicians who write more than 20 prescriptions a day for certain regulated pain medications. Pinellas County Commissioners approved a moratorium on pain management clinics May 4, 2010. They amended the ordinance Sept. 28, 2010, to require more registration information and add fees to pay administrative costs. The ordinance was amended a second time Nov. 8, 2011, changing the name from pain management to high prescribers. At that time, high prescribers were defined as those who wrote a minimum of 34 prescriptions a day. Care standards for high prescribers also were added. Registration fees were reduced. On May 8, 2012, the commission extended the moratorium and approved another amendment. This one redefined a high prescriber and required registration for doctors who prescribed a minimum of 20 prescriptions a day. Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services, told commissioners that the moratorium and other measures taken to combat prescription drug abuse in Pinellas seemed to be working. In 2012, prescription drug related deaths declined by 29.7 percent from 249 in 2010 to 175 in 2012. Ongoing concerns are drug-addicted newborns and children removed from their home because of parental addiction, he said. Pinellas Countys moratorium and regulation measures were put in place to counteract the lack of action at the state level to control the flow of prescription drugs. Local leaders would like to replace the countys ordinance with statewide laws. Since 2010, commissioners have timed the local moratorium effective date to coincide with the state legislative sessions. The same as past years, the ordinance approved in 2012 was set to expire 60 days after the close of the legislative session. The July 9 ordinance amened-ment extends the current moratorium until 60 days after the close of Pinellas County Commissioners extend a moratorium on facilities that write more than 20 prescriptions a day for certain pain medications as part of an ongoing effort to stop abuse and criminal activity. Tim Burns, director of Justice and Consumer Services, says a significant amount of money can be made selling prescription drugs.

Staff said the estimated administrative costs of $42,000 for the coming year would be recouped from permit and applications fees. Burns reported a continued lack of progress at the state level to regulate prescription drugs. He said the statewide database was operational, but physicians are not required to use it. Large pharmacies are using it, he said, but not some of the smaller operations. He also said funding for the database was uncertain in coming years due to concerns about the safety of the data. Commissioner Charlie Justice said it was important that the local ordinance not interfere with physicians ability to conduct business. He questioned the limit of 20 prescriptions a day. Commissioner Susan Latvala, who chairs the countys prescription drug task force, said the task force, which includes several physicians in its membership, supports the ordinance. She said a real doctor would spend more time with a patient, making 20 prescriptions a realistic number. She also pointed out that not every patient needs a prescription. It would be pretty hard to do 20 a day, she said. Justice asked about doctors who treat certain types of patients. Commissioner Janet Long said she supported the ordinance but also was concerned about places that treat cancer patients. Burns said the ordinance included exemptions for physicians who primarily deal with surgical and cancer patients. Burns also said that allowing 34 a day was very enabling to certain locations that opened for only a couple hours a day. They could make a significant amount of money on 34 in two hours, so we decided to adopt 20 (as the limit), he said. One local doctor asked the commission to put back the exemption for teaching facilities that are exempted by state law. George Kamajian, DO, who runs a clinic and teaching facility in Indian Shores, told commissioners that he is no longer excluded from the countys ordinance and is now considered a high prescriber. He said the ordinance interfered with his ability to practice medicine. Burns confirmed that the state did exempt teaching facilities. He said the exemption was removed from the local ordinance due to the ease with which a physician could get an intern and become a teaching facility. Burns said another issue was the requirement to put physicians license number on prescription pads that was causing an undue burden. Were revisiting that, he said. Im concerned about this physicians (Kamajian) teaching, Long said. How can he not be excluded? Burns said the local ordinance doesnt allow the teaching exemption. That makes no sense in terms of his practice, Long said. Commissioner Chair Ken Welch asked if there was a way to verify teaching facilities. County Attorney Jim Bennett said staff would meet with Kamajian to explore a path to provide an exemption for a legit exemption. Carl Brody, assistant county attorney, who has done much of the work on the ordinance, urged caution. He said the ordinance was an attempt to provide legit high prescribers with a way to do business. Theres a fine line between high prescribers who are legit and those who are not, he said. Bennett told commissioners it would be OK to approve the amended ordinance July 9 to keep the moratorium from expiring. He said staff would report if an adjustment were needed. Justice said one of the first bills he passed when serving in the state House of Representatives dealt with privacy issues. He continued to express concern about regulating doctors activities. I understand the rationale for it, he said. But it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. MORATORIUM, from page 5A Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

It really appeals to everyone, especially the healthy eater who is smart and conscious about what theyre putting into their body, Clark said. The addition of Whole Foods is just part of a general positive direction that the mall is heading in, Clark said, especially since its big renovation project a few years ago. Everything with the mall is going great, Clark said. Were very leased-up at this time and sales and traffic continue to be on the upswing, so we continue to be very happy with everything thats happened since the 2009 development and is showing positive results, and we think that was instrumental in getting Whole Foods. Although shoppers still have to wait to enjoy the offerings of Whole Foods, they can have immediate satisfaction with a number of other new stores. Some of them that have recently opened include Pandora Jewelry, which is on the second level by the food court; Crocs shoes, which is on the first level near the ice skating rink; Shalimar Jewelers, which is on the first level near restaurant row; PeachMac the Apple Specialist, which is an authorized specialist of Apple products; and a Taco Bell, which took the last opening in the food court, Clark said. Additionally, Earth Bound Trading will be opening in the fall, which will be a first-to-market store, she said. Clark compares it to an Urban Outfitters or Anthropology it will sell clothing, accessories and jewelry. Also, La Macarone is now under construction, which will be a French pastry shop upstairs across from the movie theater. By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER Westfield Countryside Mall is gearing up for some exciting changes and new stores, as well as already enjoying the addition to a few new businesses. Pre-construction for the new Whole Foods Market is underway, which is by far the largest of the new stores lined up. The Whole Foods Market will take up just less than 40,000 square feet of the first floor of what is now the Sears store, said Lauren Clark, marketing director for Westfield Countryside. Currently, Sears is doing its part of the construction to prepare for Whole Foods to come in, she said. They are rearranging some of their floor sets in order to make room because they wont be losing any departments or anything like that, so its going to be a lot of adjusting that has to take place in the front of house and back of house to accommodate that, Clark said. According to a Whole Foods spokesman, there is no definite start date on construction or opening, but Howard Riefs, director of corporate communications for Sears Holding, shed some light on at least when that phase of construction will start. He also added that Sears is pleased to share its space with the market. Sears Holding has a long and successful history of value creation through the inclusion of complementary retailers, outparcel development and alternative uses within our large asset footprint, Riefs said. At the Sears store at Westfield Countryside Mall, weve subleased 37,000 square feet of our space on the ground floor to Whole Foods. We will turn the raw space over to Whole Foods in January 2014. Sears has a history of such partnerships, Riefs said, but the two businesses will operate completely separately. Whole Foods will reconfigure the internal space and external appearance for their needs, Riefs said. Theres a separate entrance for Whole Foods customers and no internal connection between the grocery store and Sears store. Weve worked with Whole Foods on additional locations, including Albany, N.Y., and Greensboro, N.C. Its important to note that we are not closing any of these Sears stores. The two entrances and position of where Whole Foods will be located is convenient because it will not interfere with current parking issues, Clark said. The good thing is that it shouldnt affect the restaurant row parking because it will be more towards the entrance of where U.S. Highway 19 is, so it shouldnt really affect the area of parking that is normally more congested, Clark said. So it will actually be using parking that isnt used as often, so that will be a good thing. Whole Foods officials have not revealed a specific opening date, but Clark guesses it will likely be spring of 2014, though there is a lot of construction to do. She said the mall is excited about the addition of Whole Foods to their location. Its great because this location will be the first Whole Foods in Pinellas County, and people wont have to travel to Tampa anymore to get organic Whole Foods produce, so that is great, Clark said. But not only that, Whole Foods really brings a whole different product offering than some of the other organic food stores and farmers markets might offer. Whole Foods offers a whole lot more variety, so the opportunity for people to get high quality organic produce just makes sense for them here. And Countryside is such a central location, its easily accessible, we have a lot of built-in parking already, and then coupled with the demographics of the area, its just a perfect place for Whole Foods to be. Whole Foods itself is still mostly tight-lipped on details about construction and the store, though Jeremy Jones, spokesman for the company, said they are excited to come to Clearwater and that they felt the location is a good fit. It also wants to continue its tradition of being good neighbors and supporting the community. The brand itself, we are really big on local products, Jones said. We believe in supporting the products that are produced locally and giving back to the community. Thats something we do in any market when we open a store. Jones said that Whole Foods draws a very diverse group of shoppers.

Natures Food Patch earns distinctionCLEARWATER The Organic Retail and Consumer Alliance recently selected Natures Food Patch as one of the top 12 Right-To-Know grocers in the United States. Out of 156 customer nominations, Natures Food Patch was chosen to be part of the diligent dozen. The top 12 stores were chosen to honor those companies, which were transparent about their GMO labeling on items carried in-store. These stores are considered to be pioneers in the area of truthful labeling, and are seen as encouragement to other grocers to provide transparent labeling as well. Natures Food Patch employs GMO researcher Patience Melton, who is responsible for researching all products to verify if genetically modified organisms are present, as well as educating employees and consumers on GMOs. If a product is found to contain GMOs, Patience will actively seek out alternatives to find a non-GMO replacement for those items. If there are no alternatives for a product containing GMOs, these products will be labeled as GMO on the pricetag in the store to ensure customer awareness. Natures Food Patch Market & Caf is a community grocery store on Cleveland Street in Clearwater. The store is dedicated to offering a complete selection of quality organic and natural products.

DAILEYImproving higher education and fighting homelessness are two of State Rep. Kathleen Peters favorite causes. But on a recent visit to the Art Institute of Tampa, a branch of Miami International University of Art and Design, the Pinellas County Republican (of South Pasadena) had a brainstorm: Why not combine the two causes? Do you do pro bono work for social causes? she asked the schools president. Of course we do, he replied. That was the genesis of a plan to have a hand-picked group of outstanding AIT students design an advertising program, similar to the 1998 anti-tobacco campaign that has had some success in curtailing smoking, to dispel the myths about homelessness. We are going to start protecting our most vulnerable citizens, Peters vowed. On July 8, a press conference was held at the countys Safe Harbor homeless shelter, near the St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport, to announce the formation of a partnership between AIT and the Homeless Leadership Board of Pinellas County to change the publics perception of the homeless population. A standing-roomonly crowd of county and municipal officials, AIT students and faculty, and representatives of the local print and broadcast media attended it. Homelessness is a huge problem in Pinellas County and the State of Florida, Carlen Peterson, a former Clearwater City Councilwoman who now chairs the Homeless Leadership Board, told the crowd. It doesnt look like what you see on the street corner or the park bench, Rep. Peters added. Its so much more. Peters added that for every wino passed out on a park bench, there might be several children or young families sleeping in cars or couch surfing at the homes of friends. Without the help they need, many of those people wind up in the criminal justice system and become the taxpayers problem. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said that doing everything possible to keep them out of the criminal justice system should be a no-brainer because it only costs $13 a day to keep a homeless person at the Safe Harbor shelter, but it would cost $105 a day to keep that same person in the nearby county jail. The criminal justice system should not be used as a dumping ground for a social problem, Gualtieri said. We need to address the problem of the criminalization of homelessness, Pinellas County Public Defender Bob Dillinger agreed. It doesnt work; it only creates more problems. Slowly, several speakers said, people are realizing that homelessness is not just a law enforcement problem or a social services problem; its everybodys problem. Bob Clifford, president of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce, said that the business community is discovering that it, too, must be part of the solution. We believe the students at the Art Institute of Tampa will be creative in their messaging and the Chamber can gather the business community to support and generate resources to execute their plan, Clifford wrote in a letter to members and friends of the chamber. We dont want to put parameters on the students at this time, Rep. Peters said when asked how the AIT team would approach the project. She said that the students would interview several homeless people, and devise a plan that they will unveil four to six months from now. After that, she said, the project might go statewide. But she cautioned that this project, or any project, alone will not eliminate homelessness. Its truly going to take a village to do this, she said. It will take all of us.Caring for pets can teach children life lessonsA dog, a bird, two fish and two dwarf hamsters are what we now have in our household as far as pets are concerned. I never would have imagined I would have so many little creatures in my house. Except for a dog, I wasnt one to have pets growing up. But today, the pets actually outnumber my kids, three to one. The first pet in our house was a dog that my husband and I got when we first got married. He was our kid before we had our two girls. The other pets started arriving as our girls could talk, probably at the age of 2 or 3. Our oldest daughter Randi started out with a betta fish as her first pet. Its a good thing, because they are pretty easy to take care of. The only real issue with fish is cleaning their water every month. Other than that, you feed them a few pellets of fish food a day, and they are fine. But be careful the little ones dont overfeed the fish. The first time that a fish died was traumatic for our girls. I think Randi cried for a whole day. We actually had a ceremony and flushed the fish down the toilet. The next fish that died wasnt a big deal. We were expecting it to be, but our girls didnt think twice about it. We did have hermit crabs somewhere along the line. I think we got those when the girls were about 4 and 5 years old. The hermit crabs werent hard to take care of, but their cages would really smell. One of the hermit crabs was pretty good at getting out of his cage. One night, we heard a big thump, and the hermit crab was out of his cage and in another room. It was funny. We nicknamed him Hercules. The hermit crabs lasted about a year and ended up going to a cousin after she babysat for them while we were on vacation. When the girls were 5 and 6, the dog they had known since birth passed away unexpectedly. It was hard on the whole family, especially our girls. We decided after a few months to get a new dog. We thought it would help them with their grief. It did. A bird was something my oldest daughter Randi wanted for awhile. My brother-in-law raised cockatiels and told us that would be a good bird for Randi. He gave us a cage and information about the bird. Randi got him for doing well on one of her report cards when she was 7. She loves the bird, but it is not the easiest animal to take care of. Not only do you have to feed him, but the cage needs to be cleaned each week. The bird is pretty messy and his seeds and feathers fall around the cage. Right now, I wouldnt say its the best pet for kids her age. Just recently, we welcomed our latest addition to the household. Both girls have wanted a hamster for a few years. My husband and I really didnt want more animals, but we told them if they could convince us about why they wanted the hamsters, we would think about it. We told them to do a report. In it, they needed to tell us the origin of dwarf hamsters, the cost to purchase one, including the cage, what the hamsters eat and how they would take care of them. We thought the report would take them a few days to complete and keep them busy for a while. Well, about three hours later, they had a full report with all the information, including photos, in a notebook. They both took turns presenting different parts to us. We were so impressed, we couldnt say no to their request. The following day, we were at the pet store getting the dwarf hamsters. Just our luck that day, the hamsters were priced at half off in a one-day sale. We couldnt beat that. My husband and I try to use the pets to help our kids learn responsibility. They have to feed their animals and clean their cages. Its not always easy for them to do alone. I am usually helping them clean the cages. In fact, I think we are at our limit of pets. I dont have time to clean any more cages. But overall, the pets in our house are fun to have, and our girls do love them. Ive found them to be a wonderful way to teach kids responsibility and lifes lessons.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 8, lives in Seminole.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, July 18, 2013I used to pack a smoke hood in my carryon luggage. I knew that most passengers survive a plane crash on impact but that many die before they can escape the toxic smoking fuselage of an airplane. But I didnt pack a smoke hood for the trip that ended with a safe landing at San Francisco International Airport on Friday. I figured my old smoke hood had outlived its shelf life. My husband, Wesley J. Smith, bought it for me in 1994 on the release of Collision Course: The Truth About Airline Safety, a book he co-authored with Ralph Nader. Also, flying is safer than it used to be. Although a regional carrier crash in Buffalo, N.Y., killed 50 people in 2009, there hasnt been a fatal accident with a major American airline in more than a decade. (For the record, Asiana Airlines is a South Korean carrier.) Credit federal safety regulations for reducing seat flammability and the danger of seat collapse inside the Boeing 777 jetliner. Those advances allowed Asiana Flight 214 passengers to get out of the wreckage. Flying never will be risk-free as the families of the two dead 16-year-old girls, as well as the seriously injured civilians and crewmembers, can attest. But air travel has become so safe that rather than worry about falling out of the sky, the flying public obsesses about the indignity of TSA searches and having to pay for airline food. We live in this amazing age that allows people to fly from one end of the country to the other in six hours and at affordable prices and all we do is complain that flying isnt so glamorous as it used to be. The Sunday New York Times had the unfortunate timing to run an opinion piece titled Class Struggle in the Sky, by contributor James Atlas. It was about the travails of flying coach bad snacks, less legroom, too many people. Atlas likened flying coach class to sailing in steerage. He marveled, The hardships of economy (class) dont seem to deter us from air travel. Hardships? We in the writing class truly are a bunch of crybabies. Atlas should ask those in the Donner party how they liked their snacks. Like many journalists, I am a world-class complainer. My repertoire of airline horror stories includes a 48-hour hitch at OHare. I can talk for a full five minutes about the challenges involved in getting to the Republican National Convention in 2000. (Long story short: After sitting on a tarmac for hours and not getting my luggage, I had to take the train from Chicago to Philadelphia.) I dont like sitting in the middle seat. I hoard my miles so that I can fly business class on international flights. I envy those with elite frequent flier status. But I also know that I get to fly because I live in a country where middle-class people have the wherewithal to see different continents. Because of airline regulations and smart engineering, its more dangerous to drive to the airport than it is to get on the plane. I started to feel silly carrying a smoke hood, although I always spend a moment to scope the exit options at takeoff. And at the end of a journey that takes hours, not weeks, if youre lucky, you get to complain about peanuts.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders @sfchronicle.com. The word blog comes from a German expression, meaning, to spill your guts out on a computer screen. Elementary forms of blogging including tweeting and postings on Facebook. Another variety is writing a daily or weekly column. It all comes down to the same thing: putting your thoughts and opinions out there for people to applaud, ignore, deride, or reply by stating their own undocumented, half-baked views. Many blogs are simply printed versions of cellphone conversations. Instead of telling their friends, Im at Publix buying dog food. What are you doing right now?, bloggers write such earth-shattering factoids on their computer screens or whatever digital devices they happen to have with them. A bona fide blogger is expected to fulfill certain requirements. He/she usually begins by believing that blogging is a simple thing, achievable by anyone with a higher I.Q. than a bucket of lard. The beginning blogger often buys one of the many instruction books, such as Blogging for Dummies or How Blogging Makes Algorithm Analysis Seem Simple. By reading such books, the would-be blogger soon learns that she must seek out the answers to fundamental questions such as Why do I want to blog?, Do I have anything worth saying? and What is my specialty? Am I an expert on any subject? What is my passion? These queries discourage many wannabe bloggers. Including me. Ive been writing for 60 years, but I have yet to become a recognized authority on any topic worth knowing about. Ive been lucky enough to work for newspapers and editors who have allowed me to write about whatever strikes my fancy. Unfortunately for me and other generalists, the world of blogging frowns on this. First-class blogging requires that you become known as a specialist in one or more areas. Otherwise, why would anyone read your blog? Such a line of thinking doesnt stop most bloggers. Thats because a typical blog deals with little more than the writers dog, cat, love life, political views, sports, or what the national news media have decreed as important for us to know about, such as the overblown Zimmerman trial. Such pedestrian concerns do not allow a blogger to rise to the upper reaches of blogdom, where fame, followers and (sometimes) money await. To reach that level, however, a blogger must (after choosing his/her specialty) put in several years of hard work not just by writing several blogging posts per week, but by building his reputation through speaking engagements, volunteer work and rescuing drowning children. At this point, blogging begins to sound like a major political campaign, dont you think? Before you post your first blog, other details must be taken care of, according to the sources Ive been reading. You must think of a catchy name for your blog. You will probably request assistance from one of the bigtime blogging platforms such as Blogger or Wordpress. You may wish to choose the best templates and other visual-design aspects for your blog. Will you choose to remain anonymous with your blog, or will you identify yourself? Caution enters in, when you realize that your blogging posts will be available to the entire world, including your employers and your family. Blogging doesnt encourage its followers to simply post their entries and then walk away. Whats important is this: Is anyone reading what I write? How many of them visit my blog site? How many of the visitors post replies or comments? Do I want to respond to all the comments I receive, or just ignore most of them? (This latter option is viewed as a foolish practice, it seems, if you want to expand your status in the blogging world.) As with most hobbies, blogging poses this question to each of its followers: how deep do I go? How many hours a day or week am I prepared to devote to blogging? As I become aware of how sophisticated and snazzy other blog sites are, am I willing to spend the time and money to upgrade my own site with artwork, photographs and eye-catching design combinations? Whatever level a blogger finds herself at, she must never forget the watchword of all blogging: content is king. Content is what she puts on the screen for the world to see.

Women seek gold, find nickelEditor: My girlfriend and I are two 60-year-old women who worked to support the family and successfully launch our kids into adulthood. What now? we asked ourselves. Having time and a budget, we decided to create a bucket list. Things we want to accomplish before we kick the bucket. Our first choice required a modest investment. For $45 each we purchased a Fathers Day special at Radio Shack, a metal detector called the Bounty Hunter. Our eyes glistened as we dreamed about the gold we might find. We excitedly donned our floppy hats, sunglasses and sunscreen and looked for a public park on the Gulf side to pillage. We put two hours worth of quarters into the meter and realized how the city fathers made their budget targets. Impatiently reaching the waters edge, my friend started scanning the flotsam thrown up by the recent storm. My job was to dig when the beep sounded. It did. Many times and each time detected iron. We quickly moved on, learning to ignore the iron beeps. After two hours, we were hot, sweaty and empty handed. What was wrong? Was it our technique? As we started back across the wooden bridge, I silently whispered a prayer, Lord, let us find something to encourage us in this new hobby. We stopped in the middle and I thought, try here. Everyone walks on the wooden planks to get to the beach. Maybe someone dropped a coin in their haste. I took the detector and started scanning along the handrail. Beeep! This time it signaled it was a coin. My friend eagerly started sifting with her hand. A dime! Ten cents! Delight and relief showed in our faces. This proved we were doing it correctly and we could see ourselves as treasure hunters! Our next expedition took us to a narrow, hard-packed, pot-holed beach that ran alongside a highway on Tampa Bay. We backed the car into an alcove flanked by mangroves. The rippling tide was only 5 feet from our bumper. After metal detecting for 20 minutes, we looked up to see the tide splashing against the tires. I was shocked the tide moved so fast and again moved the car forward. Twenty minutes later I looked up again, and was stunned as to the tides speed. This happened three times. We learned a lot about how quickly Tampa Bay fills and empties each day. Bottle caps littered the area so when we scanned I ignored all the aluminum beeps. I thought that beer consumption alone would make it a target-rich environment as tipsy beachgoers might drop their change (and hopefully nothing else!). I was right it beeped coin three times and we dug up a quarter, a nickel and a penny. Still hoping to find gold rings, we comforted ourselves as we realized we had netted 41 cents in our two outings. Our hobby will probably take us to some of Pinellas Countys most beautiful beaches and this will be (almost) a reward in itself. Look for us one day we will keep seeking treasures lost on land and sea!

Remember the rocky rollout of the Medicare prescription drug program in 2006? There were glitches and stories about people who couldnt navigate the system or get the help they needed. Eventually, however, goodwill, patience and sincere effort by just about everyone involved ironed out the kinks in Medicare Part D. Its so popular now that no one would dare try to eliminate it.The Daytona Beach News-Journal, July 11It is a big if. Its why President Barack Obama has said he is deeply concerned about Morsis overthrow. But, according to USA Today, Obama wont call the militarys move a coup, as a proclamation of a coup would endanger $1.5 billion in annual U.S. aid to Egypt. The United States must be careful not to further destabilize Egypt. Cutting U.S. aid could cause new problems.The Lakeland Ledger, July 3Student-loan debt might be the next economic bubble to burst. As tuition rises, the amount of total student loan debt in the U.S. has exceeded an unsustainable $1 trillion. A stubbornly high unemployment rate makes it even harder for graduates to pay those bills. Congress failure to prevent rates on subsidized Stafford loans from doubling to 6.8 percent on July 1 only adds to that burden.The Miami Herald, June 26:So where does America stand on gay marriage?

Casey Foundation released Monday ranks Florida at 38 among the states in addressing the well being of its children.

In addition, 34 percent of our children have parents with unstable employment, 48 percent are living in environments where most of the income goes to housing costs.Florida Today, June 21 deeper American involvement in the (Syrian) war appears inevitable. (Syrian President Bashar ) Assads use of chemical weapons provides legal justification. And an expiring European arms embargo provides eager allies, particularly in France and Britain. Having reason and means, however, does not ensure successful ends. What Obama must not do, but cant easily avoid, is get trapped on the path of incremental escalation, each step drawing the U.S. deeper into a complex Muslim conflict that it cant control and which no side seems likely to win.

FREE CONSULTATION Police 15A Police beatSecurPass scanner in use at county jailCLEARWATER SecurPass, a full body digital X-ray scanning system, is now part of the booking process at the Pinellas County Jail, 14400 49th St. N. in Clearwater. The RAD PRO SecurPass serves as an additional security tool to assist detention and corrections staff detect contraband, such as weapons, narcotics or other prohibited items that an inmate may attempt to smuggle into the jail. SecurPass was installed in June. Following staff training, the system was put into use during the booking process on June 13. The SecurPass cost was $215,000. According to detention and corrections bureau personnel, all new inmates to be booked into the Pinellas County Jail will be screened using SecurPass. Any inmate already within the facility also may be searched with the new system. In addition, the system may be used to scan items, such as mattresses, where inmates may attempt to conceal contraband. The system can detect metals, pills, plastics, drugs, and other unusually shaped items that may be concealed on the inmates person. Officials say it would take 500 scans to equal the radiation exposure of one chest X-ray. In the last 12 months, there were 158 separate contraband incidents detected at the booking process, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. He said items found, included firearms, knives, drugs and drug paraphernalia, counterfeit bills and a handcuff key. Safety is paramount. Our primary focus is to keep our detention deputies, civilian staff and the inmates safe. SecurPass will provide that additional layer of security. SecurPass is minimally intrusive. It takes eight seconds to perform a scan with a 360-degree view. According to detention and corrections staff, the scan only adds one minute to the entire booking process. Once the scan is complete, the image is then examined by a detention deputy on a computer screen. Only if contraband is detected will the image be stored as part of an incident report. The scanner will not eliminate or replace the need to conduct strip searches. The systems main purpose is to enhance security and safety for staff and inmates. An average of 47,000 is booked into the county jail each year, about 128 a day.Two injured in wrong-way crash on I-275ST.

Those are documents over and above the enumeration of the population created during the decennial census. There are several of those schedules, and this month I will talk a bit about one of them: the Agricultural Schedule. The Agricultural Schedule was produced for the years 1850 through 1910, with those from 1850 to 1880 being preserved, as well as one in 1885 for those states doing a state census in that year. The Agricultural Schedules are useful in providing an overall view of the agricultural state of the nation, and more specifically, giving a detailed understanding of the state of individual farms. In general, data recorded on the agricultural schedules covered one year exactly preceding the year of enumeration which was 1 June for the years in question. Not every farm, however, was included in those schedules. In 1850, for example, small farms that produced less than $100 worth of products annually were not included. By 1870, the rule was that farms of less than three acres or which produced less than $500 worth of products were not included. Thankfully, some census takers ignored the guidelines, and often even small farms that should have been excluded will appear on the schedule. If a person appearing on the population schedule owned or operated a farm, that persons name and detailed information about the farm would appear on the farm schedule as well. In addition to the names of the owners and managers, you will find such information as the total acreage, number of farm animals (horses, milch, cows, pigs, etc.), and the amounts of various crops harvested. Specifically explored was the amount of oats, rice, tobacco, cotton, wool, peas, beans, Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes, barley, buckwheat, orchard products, wine, butter, cheese, hay, clover seed, other grass seeds, hops, hemp, flax, flaxseed, silk cocoons, maple sugar, cane sugar, molasses, beeswax, and honey produced during the preceding year. The information requested on each schedule changed throughout the years. For example, in the 1880 census the number of questions on the farm schedule was nearly double the number found on the 1870 census. The message here is that if you find your ancestors name on one farm schedule, look for it also on the schedules for other years because they may yield more or different information. Since a farm owner may not be the farm operator, you might find a city dweller listed on the farm schedule. This circumstance can lead to more information about the family than you may have imagined since now a rural environment with its social and economic context has been revealed to augment the city environment and its context. This may be just the hint you needed to break through one of those pesky brick walls. Other uses of the agricultural schedule are to help identify the land holdings of your ancestors, show each farm in relation to the neighboring farms and their owners (this can be helpful when land and tax records are missing, or for exploring the families of future spouses), and for AfricanAmerican research the 1850 and 1860 Agricultural Schedules help identify white overseers, Black sharecroppers, or track free Black men and their economic growth. Ancestry.com is one of the better places to find U.S. federal agricultural schedules. They are available there for the years 1850-1880 for the following states: Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington territory. Remember, although Ancestry.com is a subscription site, you can access if for free from your local public library. In sum, the agricultural schedule holds much information for family researchers. It can offer hints leading to missing ancestors, and certainly they can provide much information to help you better understand the day-to-day lives of your ancestors, as well as insights to their economic and social situations.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

At the end of the companys most recent TV spot, Weather Tite Mike looks directly at the camera and says, And dont forget to bring me cookies! This cookies line may sound a bit out of context within the advertisement. What exactly do cookies have to do with windows, anyway? Nothing, says Michael. I just like cookies. Since the commercials began airing, Michael has noticed that customers of Weather Tite Windows have not only seen and heard his simple request, theyve listened as well. People go out of their way now to bring me all sorts of cookies, Michael says. Weve started a virtual cookie epidemic, and love it! Randomly asking people for cookies is quite unconventional, but that seems to be the trend with Weather Tite Windows. We like to do things a little different here, says Michael. Founded in 1991, Weather Tite Windows is a local, family-owned and operated business that continues its mission to bring customized energy-efficient windows and doors to homes and high-rise condominiums. The window replacement company offers no money down and no interestfinancing for up to five years. This type of financing option is almost unheard of in our industry, Michael adds. Many people think they need to replace all of their windows at once. In an effort to help people who cant afford to upgrade every window in their entire home, Weather Tite Windows offers clients a four-year price freeze on all remaining windows and doors so that customers can upgrade them at a later date without worrying about a price increase. The program has enabled many people to upgrade immediately who have never thought they would be able to afford energy-efficient Weather Tite windows and doors. For more information, please visit their website at www.weathertitewindows.com or call 727-280-6029 for a free in-home consultation.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:TurboGenre: Animation and family Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmn, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Snoop Lion and Samuel L. Jackson Director: David Soren Rated: PG Turbo is a little guy with big dreams. Not satisfied with living life at a snails pace, he has a powerful and resolute need for speed. Turbo trains tirelessly, measuring his progress with a yardstick. His new record: covering the 36-inch-long track in 17 minutes. Turbos single-minded goal is to compete in the greatest race in the world: the Indy 500. When we meet Turbo, hes somewhat of an outcast in the snail community, which is less about big dreams and more about punching a time clock at their place of employment (and principal source of nourishment) the [tomato] plant. Turbos brother Chet, whose credo is, safety first, last and only, shares the communitys insistence on a snail-paced routine. Chet loves his brother, but he is concerned that Turbos obsession with all things fast could lead to disaster or worse! Leaving the plant behind, Turbo begins his journey to fulfill his dreams when he is swept from a freeway overpass onto the hood of a sports car, and is then propelled into the muscle cars air intake valve. Explosive nitrous oxide charges every atom of Turbos body, altering his molecular structure. The freak accident infuses Turbo with incredible speed he can reach 200 miles per hour and he now blazes across the streets of Los Angeles like a neon bullet. But even a turbo-charged Turbo cant accomplish miracles on his own. Luckily, fate intervenes again, when Turbo and Chet are captured by Tito, the co-proprietor (with his brother Angelo) of a Van Nuys, California-based taco stand. Titos sideline and his true passion is pitting snails against one another in not-so-fast-and-furious racing competitions. At the races home base, the Starlight Plaza, Turbo meets the Racing Snails, a ragtag group with shells that look like mini-street racing cars. Their pimped-out exteriors are complemented by their trash-talking personalities. Opening this weekendR.I.P.D. pairs Bridges and Reynolds; ensemble cast returns for Red 2 Photo courtesy of DREAMWORKS ANIMATION LLC.Chet (left, voiced by Paul Giamatti) is the older brother and voice of reason to Turbo (Ryan Reynolds), an underdog snail whose dreams suddenly kick into overdrive in Turbo. The Racing Snails make fast friends with Turbo, and together they begin a journey of adventure, bonding and family,The ConjuringGenre: Supernatural thriller Cast: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Haley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy, Kyla Deaver and Sterling Jerins Director: James Wan Rated: R Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on the true-life story, The Conjuring tells the tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.R.I.P.D.Genre: Supernatural action thriller Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, Robert Knepper, James Hong, Marisa Miller, Mike OMalley and Devin Ratray Director: Robert Schwentke Rated: PG-13 Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth. Once the wisecracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork.

The siege will no doubt continue as Eight OClock Theatre presents its production of the brand new musical Lost at Sea, running through July 21, at the LCC, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 for adults and $12.50 for students. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. This new musical from Pinellas County natives Jason Tucker and Amanda Elend boasts colorful pirates and rollicking music but its really much more than that. A colorful and entertaining production, Lost at Sea follows the adventure of Alex Jones, a 12-year-old girl who is dealing with the death of her father. She lives with her mother and younger brother and she is drawn to a world of fantasy, exhibiting in particular an obsession with pirates her best friend Simone finds childish. Everything changes when she and her family visit one of her fathers favorite restaurants. The eatery is, in fact, a moored pirate ship, complete with what appears to be a crew of mechanical pirates, endlessly performing the same clichd shanty. The setting evokes some obvious regional cues, from Walt Disneys Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Magic Kingdom to Tampa Bay area dining spots of a bygone era such as The Careless Navigator of Treasure Island. A dose of magic realism cleverly alters the milieu and leads Alex into a centuries old story of revenge tied to a blood feud and a voodoo curse. The show is a homecoming for Tucker and Elend, the husband-and-wife writing team behind Lost at Sea. The couple currently resides in Nashville where Tucker runs LTM Productions. It wasnt that long ago that Tucker regularly helmed EOT productions. Over the years, he directed Footloose, My Favorite Year, Into the Woods, Beauty and the Beast, Urinetown, The Fantasticks and Bye Bye Birdie. Elend portrayed Belle in Beauty and the Beast at EOT. When choosing a theater where they could present the world premier production of Lost at Sea, their relationship with EOT led them home to Pinellas. Im lucky to have a theater I love that is willing to take a chance on our work, writes Tucker in his note from the director. And I feel incredibly lucky when I watch this amazing cast and dedicated crew making this crazy little vision come to life. And it is an amazing cast and crew that breaths life into Lost at Sea. Among the cast is another returning Pinellas thespian: Brent Michael DiRoma. A graduate of Seminole High School, DiRoma is just coming off a national tour for the Broadway hit Jersey Boys. Prior to that, DiRoma earned a nomination for a Helen Hayes award for Outstanding Lead Actor for his portrayal of Princeton and Rod in the national tour of Avenue Q. Before all that national attention, DiRoma also starred as Bobby Strong in EOTs production of Urinetown. DiRoma fashions a dashing, emotive Captain Blood penitent and gallant, a Robin Hood of the Spanish Main. A member of the Actors Equity Association, DiRomas talent is more than evident in this production: His voice is consistently clear and crisp and his singing is carefully nuanced. His portrayal of the character seems magically effortless, which facilitates the audiences suspension of disbelief. Maggie Muscos Alex Jones is an equally compelling character and Musco makes the most of it. Starring alongside DiRoma, it would have been easy for this 13-year-old actress to find herself eclipsed by the veteran but that doesnt happen. Indeed, Musco who starred previously in Annie and in Miracle on 34th Street exhibits a voice that is fresh and agile. Considering her age, her acting is surprisingly flexible in its range and expression. The balance of the ensemble features a number of very strong musical theater performers, including Rand Smith as Jean Pinot and Christina Capehart as Sheila Shanks. Tucker and Elend have shrewdly added twists in the story that introduce further depth to these two supporting characters. Smith himself an EOT veteran who starred most recently as King Arthur in Camelot deftly illustrates Pinots tragic mix of bitterness and remorse. Capehart last seen as Ulla in The Producers delightfully underscores her characters guile and hostility. Francesca Guanciale Jay stands out as Deb Jones, Alexs mother, in numbers such as One Shot and Lost at Sea. Ashton Sarlo, starring as Alexs little brother Kevin Jones, makes his debut at EOT and does a superb job in his role. The production benefits from splendid musical direction by the talented Emi Stefanov as well as excellent choreography led by Amy Phillips. Thom Jay handled the fight choreography, making all the heated melee sequences simultaneously smooth and thrilling. Lost at Sea is a solid show with a transfixing story and wonderful music. Standout numbers include the lyrically complex Lost at Sea, the stirring This Is the Dawn and One Shot. Tucker and Elend have crafted something unique and spellbinding, and it is a pleasure to see it debut on a local stage.

Red 2Genre: Action and comedy Cast: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough Director: Dean Parisot Rated: PG-13 In Red 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing, next-generation lethal device that can change the balance of world power. To succeed, theyll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the technologically advanced super weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world and stay alive in the process.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.BlackfishGenre: Documentary Director: Gabriela Cowperthwaite Rated: PG-13 Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000-pound orcas, or killer whales, soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly and unpredictably able to turn on them at a moments notice. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who unlike any orca in the wild has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what went wrong? Shocking, never before seen footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orcas extraordinary nature, the species cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans truly know about these highly intelligent, and surprisingly sentient, fellow mammals that we only think we can control. When you look into their eyes, somebodys home. Somebodys looking back at you but it may not be what you think.Girl Most LikelyGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald and Darren Criss Director: Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman Not rated Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Years News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, shes forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, theres a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mothers bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if shes ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.Photo by MICHAEL TACKETTPatrick Wilson stars as Ed Warren and Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren in New Line Cinemas supernatural thriller The Conjuring, a Warner Bros.
