Page 11A. Barnhorn on the ballotSeminoles vice mayor runs for second vice president of the Florida League of Cities By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn is a candidate for second vice president of the Florida League of Cities. The election will be held at the 87th Florida League of Cities Annual Conference, Friday, Aug. 16 through Sunday, Aug. 18 in Orlando. Barnhorn, who has been a member of Seminole City Council since March 2006 and served as president of the local Suncoast League of Cities in 20112012, has been a member of the Florida League of Cities since 2007. He has sat on the FLCs Board of Directors, as the Eighth District Director, for the past three years. He has put in a lot of work, time and energy over the years with the FLC [and] advocates state legislators on behalf of city issues, Mayor Leslie Waters said. [He] has been establishing a sound foundation as he progresses into top leadership of this important organization. If elected second vice president of the FLC, Barnhorn said he will be on the fast track for the position of president, first bumping up to first vice president the following year, and then to president the year after that. Former Seminole Mayor Dottie Reeder, who served as president of the league, introduced him to the FLC. The league has been around 85 years this year. When you stop and think about it, its amazing that we could have a second president from Seminole, Barnhorn said. Thats a big accolade for our very little city. In order to campaign for the position, Barnhorn visited all of the local League of Cities over the past few months from Miami to Pensacola, he said. There are 21 local leagues, he added, only 19 of them active. In April, the Seminole City Council approved a one-time $2,500 increase to his travel and training account to help partially fund the campaign costs. If he wins, one thing Barnhorn plans to improve is the effectiveness of how the organization lobbies to state officials. The FLC heads to Tallahassee every year to advocate for the issues affecting its members, the cities throughout the state. Wed bang on doors of senators and representatives and say, Please dont do this. Please dont do that, Barnhorn said. Barnhorn said his goal is to begin this advocacy earlier in the year for more effective results. We dont have to wait until we get up there, he said. We can make things happen earlier. The benefits to Seminole would be numerous, as well, he said. Already, simply being a member of the league benefits the city. Membership in the league costs $5,000 a year, Barnhorn said. As a member, the city receives a special insurance premium, with savings of $19,442, he said. Thats not bad for a $5,000 investment, he said. It also creates a sense of community between all of the cities and local leagues throughout the state. We meet and advocate for each other, he said. We have issues in the community that affect every city. Every single [local] league is run differently, but we have the same underlying problems. The strength of the [FLC] is that were able to get together as one body, one voice. And if he becomes president, hell be able to focus on the issues that are important to Seminole.

Page 1B.Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Were the Millers set to open Thomas Barnhorn By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE During the summer, children are quick to toss aside the books and forget about schoolwork. So for the second summer in a row, Seminole Community Library decided to bring in some furry friends through its weekly Reading with the Dogs program and inspire children to read more during their time off. The eight-week program, held on Fridays each week, began on June 16. Children get to read to a therapy dog for 15-minute sessions starting at 10 a.m. Though the last sessions of the summer will be held on Aug. 10, this year the library plans to extend the program into the fall because of its popularity. No specific start date has been set for September yet, but those interested in the program can contact the Youth Services Department over the next few weeks, said Jill Storm, the librarys youth services supervisor. The key to reading is reading, said Storm. The more you read, the better you get at it. The problem is, she said, many kids, as theyre learning to read, feel intimidated and lack confidence in their abilities. Dog days of summerSeminole Library plans to extend its Reading with the Dogs program into the fallCoast Guard Auxiliarys military memorial wall gets first bricks By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH A longtime vision for Marcel Traficante is coming to fruition on the south wall of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary building in Madeira Beach. Nearly two years since he got the idea to build a memorial wall to honor members of the U.S. military, a total of 47 memorial bricks have been attached to the wall next to an attractive, colorful mural. His goal is to fill the wall to capacity with about 360 more bricks, which are actually individual tiles. I think its our responsibility to remember those who have decided to unselfishly serve our great country, said Traficante, the division vice commander of Auxiliary Flotilla 11-3. This is an opportunity to honor a family member or anyone who has served in the military. The concept came about after two of Traficantes friends were killed in Afghanistan. Their wives were afraid their children would grow up not knowing who their father was,Vets bring home gold from Wheelchair GamesSEMINOLE Twelve gold medals, two silver and one bronze. These were the spoils taken home by the Bay Pines VA Healthcare Systems veteran team during the 33rd National Veterans Wheelchair Games in Tampa July 13-18. This was the first year the Bay Pines VAHCS entered the National Veterans Wheelchair Games as a team joining the nearly 600 athletes from the United States, Great Britain and Puerto Rico in the worlds largest annual multi-sport wheelchair event for military Veterans. The competition featured 18 different medal-awarding events and two exhibition events with athletes competing against their peers Photo courtesy of BAY PINES VAHCSU.S. Navy veteran Bob Schum participates in the adaptive water skiing exhibition at Lake Seminole on July 15 as part of the National Veterans Wheelchair Games.

We have memorials in Washington but really nothing out there nearby. In February 2012, Traficante went to work. He advertised on Craigs List for an artist to paint the mural and found Belinda Davis of St. Petersburg. She began work on the mural about four months later and a year ago it was dedicated at the Auxiliary headquarters, located at 299 Boca Ciega Drive. After we got the mural finished, I thought why not do memorial bricks to honor current and past military members? Traficante said. We wanted to make sure the bricks were made in the U.S. and that was tough.

The dogs are just happy to have someone close to them, pet them and talk to them. Those dogs are not going to judge their reading. Lola Gayton, 7, loves reading and dogs, though she doesnt have one at home, so the reading program was perfect for her. But though she is a great reader, shed often take out more books than she could finish each week. After reading to the therapy dogs all summer, her mother has noticed shes completing more of the books. Now she finishes a whole book, skips less pages and is a more consistent reader, her mother said. Francis Foranda, grandfather of 3year-old Dominic Foranda, said the program has greatly improved the attention span of his grandson, who reads at a third-grade level. He loves coming here each week, Francis Foranda said.

GAMES, from page 1A he found Miami-based Bricks R Us, which not only sells the bricks but also does laser engraving. The Auxiliary sells two sizes a 4-inch by 8-inch brick for $59 and an 8-inch square brick for $79. Proceeds help to support public safety programs at the Auxiliary. Both de Miranda and Traficante stressed that bricks can be purchased by anyone, military or civilian, for anyone who has served in the U.S. military, past or present. One family, the Allaire family of Madeira Beach, purchased three bricks for World War II U.S. Navy veteran Richard Allaire, U.S. Army Iraq veteran Patrick Allaire and his son Matthew, who is currently serving with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. They were among the initial 47 bricks to go up that took a little longer than originally anticipated. We discovered we needed to stucco the wall so the bricks would adhere better and then we had to seal them to protect them from the weather, said Traficante. We werent anticipating (the extra cost), but we wanted it done right. The Auxiliary spent $1,300 for the stucco work and $400 for the sealant. More bricks will soon be added to the wall. We wish we had more, said Suzie De Miranda, the flotilla staff officer for public affairs. We just want to get the word out that the wall is here. A lot of people dont know its here. So were considering putting up signs. Other amenities planned for the wall include a battlefield marker encased in plexi-glass, landscaping, lighting that will allow 24/7 viewing of the wall and two benches facing the wall, compliments of the city of Madeira Beach. Ultimately, Traficante said, he hopes to have services and an open house at the Auxiliary building on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

Besides producing national and world-class athletes, the Games also provide opportunities for newly disabled Veterans to gain sports skills and be exposed to other wheelchair athletes. Members of the Bay Pines team included Lin Hales, recreation therapist and team coach; U.S. Army veterans Jimmy Green (four gold Basketball, Javelin, Nine Ball, Discus; one bronze softball) and Pam Kelly (five gold bowling, motorized slalom, archery, motor rally, air guns); Air Force veterans Shawn ONeil and Angel Watson (two gold weightlifting, trap shooting; two silver nine ball, table tennis); and Navy veteran Bob Schum (one gold bowling). To be a part of this years National Veterans Wheelchair Games was an amazing opportunity, to say the least, said Hales. Despite our team being small in numbers, we were larger than life in effort, attitude, and energy. The team not only showed up and put forth 110 percent at their individual events, but they showed up all day long to cheer on each other. It was camaraderie and sportsmanship at its finest, she said. For Green, a native of Largo, this was his 18th year of competing in the Games and first year competing on the Bay Pines VAHCS team. As a Games veteran with more than 50 medals under his belt and a former member of a National Wheelchair Basketball Association championship team, Green said he aims to build the team at Bay Pines and bring more awareness to the therapeutic benefits of adaptive sports. Every disabled veteran deserves the opportunities that I have received and the veterans at Bay Pines are no exception, he said. I want to help build this program because I want every disabled veteran at Bay Pines to have that feeling that I got from discovering adaptive sports. For Kelly, a resident of Pinellas Park, and U.S. Army veteran medically discharged from active duty military in 2006. this was her first time competing in the Games and definitely not her last. The experience of the Games let me know that there is no obstacle I cannot overcome, Kelly said. I have a lot of challenges in my life now, but I know I can get through day-by-day. I definitely know that I want to represent Bay Pines next year in Philadelphia, my hometown. The Games are presented annually by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America. The James A. Haley Veterans Hospital and the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America co-hosted the 2013 event locally.Photos by TIFFANY RAZZANONancy Barlow and her dog Maggie listen as Lola Gayton, 7, reads aloud during her Reading with the Dogs session on Aug. 2.

Storm wanted to extend the program into the school year last fall, but couldnt get the legal paperwork together in time. This year Leber was joined by Nancy Barlow and Maggie, a Pembrook Welsh Corgi, and Ruth Carlin and Sid, a schnauzer, both working as part of Therapy Dogs International. Maggie has the perfect temperament for this [kind of work,] Barlow said. And she loves doing it. For Storm, her favorite part is seeing how the program affects young readers.

Unlike many previous meetings on ways to balance the EMS fund, the room wasnt packed with fire chiefs, firefighters and paramedics opposed to a consultants findings and recommendations. The Thursday morning meeting concluded in about an hour. This is a very important day, Commission Chair Ken Welch said at the beginning of the work session. He said the work done by the consultant, Fitch and Associates, was a good process toward a necessary discussion. That doesnt mean well agree on everything in the report, but it does give us enough information to make decisions. He said the consultants conclusion that Pinellas County had the finest EMS system in the United States maybe the world was good news. He also said it was time to move forward to maintain the excellence of the system in an affordable way. Robert Polk with Pinellas Suncoast Fire Rescue and president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, outlined the areas in which the association agreed with the Fitch report, which he described as the most comprehensive set of data weve ever had. He complimented Fitch for its interesting use of the data, which consisted of EMS calls from the year 2011, and said the association also agreed with Fitchs conclusion that the countys system was one of the most sophisticated in the United States. The association agrees with Fitch in its opinion that the plan proposed in a 2011 study by consultant Mic Gunderson, one of the principals with Integral Performance Solutions, was in theory achievable, but not implementable. The countys system is not in such disrepair to need such a move, he said. The association agreed with Fitch that using Sunstar instead of fire department first responders for lowlevel emergency calls would not save money. He also agreed with the findings that a centralized system created efficiencies. However, he said, Surge capacity must be present in the system to ensure response to disasters. He also pointed out that fire departments and districts contribute to the system by providing equipment and personnel that doesnt cost the county a dime. He said for the first time, in 2014, the firefighters contracts for EMS would be less than the contract with Paramedics Plus, a private company that provides ambulance service under the countys Sunstar brand. He cautioned enhancements, he said. Lt. Scott Sanford with Palm Harbor Fire Rescue said he was glad that Fitch had demonstrated that a plan he co-authored with Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue would work. The plan advocates ambulance transport by local fire departments instead of private ambulance service. However, he wasnt happy with the revisions made in the plan to address excessive workload, which Fitch said was a problem with the Sanford-Millican plan. Adding in units to balance workload made fire department transport too expensive to implement. Its somewhat of a relief to find closure on this, he said. This is a life and death decision were passing on to you. Lealman Fire and Rescue Chief Rick Graham said the Fitch report showed the countys system was Lt. Scott Sanford with Palm Harbor Fire Rescue tells Pinellas County Commissioners that he is glad Fitch and Associates proved that fire departments could provide transport service during an Aug. 1 work session.PCCTV screen shot by SUZETTE PORTERthat any changes made to the system would be complex and time consuming.

He objected to the notion that the system had excess capacity as opposed to reserve capacity. Reserve capacity is required, he said. He gave the example of recent thunderstorms as proof of its need. Its the difference between life and death. Its safety, he said. Graham is not sure that the CARES plan recommended by Fitch is something that can be implemented immediately. Its a good platform, he said. The CARES plan calls for a reduction in EMS staff during nighttime hours. John Klinefelter, president of the Clearwater Firefighters Association, talked about problems with the IPS and Fitch study, saying neither had been fully vetted. He objected to the countys move on priority dispatch. He said the CARES plan, cutting 10 hours from midnight to 7 a.m., did not ensure enough firefighters were on duty to respond at all times. Its not just about medical, its also about fire, he said. He said if the county did not fund personnel for those 10 hours, cities and fire districts would have to fund their own units. He said one-third of Clearwaters units were funded by the city now. He said if the county made cuts, they would have to do more with their advance life support engines, which could influence the level of service on Clearwater Beach. Its a huge cost shift to the cities and fire districts, he said. Thus far, municipalities and fire districts have been silent in terms of a formal response to Fitchs report and the CARES plan. Commissioner Chair Ken Welch said the response had been favorable in conversations with some fire chiefs. The commission directed staff to begin conversations with all interested parties as soon as possible to begin work toward implementing any possible cost savings from Fitchs plan. While the consensus was to push ahead sooner rather than later, commissioners realize it could take two to three years. Meanwhile, millage rates may have to be increased to pay for costs. The commission agreed that boundaries of the discussion should center on the CARES plan, reduction of staffing for 10 hours between midnight and 7 a.m., addressing excess capacity, long-term financial sustainability and protecting the level of service. Commissioners also asked for a status report on phase 3 priority dispatch. The commission had voted to implement phase 3 on June 1. Phase 3 calls for Sunstar to respond to low-level emergency calls instead of fire department first responders. The Fitch report recommends the opposite approach response by fire personnel instead of the private ambulance provider. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the decision would be up to the EMS medical director and Medical Control Board, but staff supports Fitchs recommendation. He said that Phase 3 was not in effect at this time. Welch asked if the medical control board was still planning to move ahead with eliminating response to certain calls, such as hiccups. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that plan was still undecided. Commissioner Susan Latvala commented on the results of the Fitch study. Were now in a better place. Theres more consensus in the community, she said. We need a system that will sustain us in the future while maintaining the most clinically sophisticated system that we have and addressing excess capacity. Commissioner Karen Seel, along with other commissioners, thanked Sanford and Millican for their contribution toward solving the EMS issue. But we still have a long-term sustainability issue. Thats still the elephant in the room, she said. EMS, from page 6A County Commission sets tentative millage rates By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners set tentative millage rates for fiscal year 201314 during a morning work session July 30. Commissioners confirmed that there would be no separate millage for a stabilization fund. They also confirmed there would be no increase in the emergency medical fund millage. Short falls will be taken from EMS reserves, leaving a balance of 22.9 percent. Commissioner Norm Roche was absent. Proposed millage increases are as follows. General Fund countywide an increase of 0.2650 mills from 5.0105 to 5.2755 Health Department no change. Millage will remain at 0.0622 EMS no change. Millage will remain at 0.9158 Municipal Services Taxing Unit no change. Tax for unincorporated residents will remain at 2.0857 Library co-op an increase of 0.0563 from 0.4437 to 0.5000 Pinellas Planning Council an increase of 0.0035 from 0.0125 to 0.160 Palm Harbor Recreation no change. Millage will remain at 0.2500 Palm Harbor Library no change. Millage will remain at 0.2500 Feather Sound Community Services no change. Millage will remain at 0.5000 East Lake Library Service new taxing district. Tentative millage is 0.2500 Millage rate changes are coming for four fire districts. Gandy will increase by 0.0375 mills from 2.2602 to 2.2977 Pinellas Park will increase by 0.6488 from 2.3675 to 3.0165 Safety Harbor will increase by 0.0487 from 2.7631 to 2.8118 Highpoint will decrease by an estimated 2.6700 mills from 4.1916 to a number yet to be finalized County staff prepared a chart showing the effect of millage changes on the average singlefamily residence. A home with an assessed value of $99,967 would be taxed an additional $26.49 for general fund millage and 35 cents for the Pinellas Planning Council. Residents living in a single-family home with an assessed value of $191,018 in East Lake will save $47.75 on library taxes. Residents living in a single-family home with an assessed value in the Gandy Fire District will pay $1.87 more in taxes. Taxpayers in a home with an assessed value of $104,176 in Highpoint Fire District will save $92.81. Homeowners of a residence with an assessed value of $115,305 in Pinellas Park Fire District will pay $34.98 more, and owners of a single-family home with an assessed value of $131,949 in Safety Harbor Fire District will pay $5.62 in additional taxes for fiscal year 2014. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that the figures did not include the 3.4 percent increase in property values countywide. Staff said the numbers were representational of the changes, not exact numbers. Staff offered estimates of tax increases for the countys portion of the tax bill for some municipalities, including: $20.66 for a home with an assessed value of $76,945 in St. Petersburg $27.07 for a home with an assessed value of $100,835 in Clearwater $17.63 for a home with an assessed value of $65,660 in Largo $26.96 for a home with an assessed value of $100,428 in Tarpon Springs $25.31 for a home with an assessed value of $94,256 in Dunedin The assessed values are the average for the municipality. The total includes millage for the general fund, EMS, Health Department and Pinellas Planning Council. County Administrator Bob LaSala pointed out that the figures did not include the school board, municipal millage or any others not levied by Pinellas County. Tentative millage rates will be reflected on the Truth in Millage notices to be sent from the Property Appraisers Office on Aug. 19. The rates can be lowered, but cannot be increased. Commissioners will continue to take public comment on next years budget and millage rates at two hearings in September. The first is on Sept. 5. The budget and millage rates will be approved at the second hearing on Sept. 17. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/budget/ 14budget/budget/fy2014.html.Social action fundingCommissioners also discussed a plan to change the way nonprofit organizations that provide food and shelter to the needy are funded. The consensus was to restore the money for that funding to the budget for the coming year and take the difference from the stabilization fund. Commissioners agreed that it was better to implement changes in fiscal year 2015 to give organizations time to prepare. Gwendolyn Warren, director of health and human services, is working on a plan that would ensure that the countys money is not used to pay administrative costs or duplicative services.

He was born in a small town in the heart of Texas, near Austin, and was the runt of the litter. Karla Morenos family of Clearwater fell in love with him, and soon Gizmo entered their home and their hearts. He is a big cheese lover but only the expensive kind and adores sunbathing in the morning. He is very sweet and loving and loves to cuddle, sleep on pillows and going to the beach. Although always playful, sometimes he thinks he is a guard dog, barking very loudly at things. He is definitely tiny but mighty, and his family lovingly calls him their little sugar cube.

Vet discusses this diseaseI can still remember the first case of parvo virus that I ever saw. Unfortunately, it was only a necropsy sample of a dogs small intestine to take back to the University of Florida for evaluation for parvo. I was working in Branford Florida as a veterinary technician the year before I started veterinary school in 1980, and dogs were dying of a new disease in the area and we needed help in solving the dilemma. These dogs would start to become depressed, most would vomit and all of them had severe diarrhea with lots of blood in it. We did everything we knew how to do at that time to save them, but we couldnt. It was a severe time for us because we really had nothing to offer the owners as their pet died from dehydration, despite having intravenous fluids given to them. Vaccine companies had been working on a cure for some time before the outbreak, and the next year, the veterinary profession had a new weapon to fight parvo. It was like night and day difference when we were able to vaccinate puppies for this disease. When the disease first started, no pets had any immunity to it so very few actually lived to pass the antibodies on to their young. Now with the aid of vaccines, female dogs have antibodies to the disease and can pass them on through their colostrum, which is in the first 24 to 48 hours that the puppies nurse.Why is Parvo so bad in dogs?Pets need to have a certain amount of hydration for the body to work properly. They get water, electrolytes, minerals, carbohydrate, fat and protein from whatever they eat and drink. The bowel has billions of villi that form the lining of the bowel and that is where water and nutrients are absorbed. The parvo virus actually enters the villi to replicate, and this process causes the villi to die very quickly. With other viral diseases, the same thing happens, but the reason parvo is so severe is that it kills the whole villi and not just part of it. It leaves the bowel unable to digest or absorb almost anything. Even if the pet eats or drinks something, it passes right through the bowel undigested and un-absorbed. The villi will regenerate, but it takes many days for that to happen, so the pet is at major risk of dying during that time.What can I do to protect my pet?When you buy a puppy, make sure that the mother was vaccinated before she was bred. This will help protect the puppy when it is very young. As they grow, they need to develop their own antibodies to protect them. Puppies should be vaccinated at least twice, and the second vaccine needs to be at 16 weeks of age or older. Our standard puppy vaccine schedule is to vaccinate them for parvo at 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks to do everything possible for them not to get this life threatening disease.Dr. Wade Matthews graduated from The University of Florida in 1984 and has practiced at The Animal Hospital of Dunedin for 28 years.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, August 8, 2013A former Obama White House press aide is calling for an end to the White Houses daily press briefings. The daily briefing has become a worthless chore for reporters, an embarrassing nuisance to administration staff, and a source of added friction between the two camps, Reid Cherlin wrote in New Republic. Its time to do the humane, obvious thing and get rid of it altogether. Amen to that. My complaints about the briefings are different from Cherlins. I dont think theres enough friction between the camps. As I watched Mondays briefing on streaming video, I spied a number of journalists looking at or typing on their phones. The press corps and White House spokesman seem like an old married couple; one knows what the other is going to say before the other says it. The press corps doesnt come off well in many exchanges. President Barack Obama met for lunch with Hillary Clinton. America wants to know: What was on the menu? Spokesman Josh Earnest was ready with an answer: grilled chicken, pasta jambalaya and salad. Theres this awful trend in journalism that, in the rush not to be late, produces stories that preview what is going to happen. Then when, say, a speech is over, its already old news, and so no one covers it. So at the briefings, reporters ask: What will the president say? Then theres the inevitable answer: I dont want to get ahead of the presidents speech tomorrow. Your average American would want to know why an administration does what it does, yet your average journalist wants to know when. In its first interview with the president since 2010, The New York Times asked the president when he would announce his decision on the Keystone pipeline and when he would name a successor to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. When reporters stray from the usual routine, it doesnt do much good. On Monday, CBS News correspondent Major Garrett tried to get a yes or no answer as to whether the administration thinks the Egyptian military is responsible for the violence that has left so many dead. Garretts tactic enabled Earnest to engage in a typical press secretary dodge referring to other officials cryptic statements. Another handy tool: telling reporters to talk to another press secretary in a different department. It cannot be good for reporters to just sit there as press secretaries spin and drill the same old talking points without saying anything revealing. As Cherlin wrote, if there were a Hippocratic oath for press secretaries at daily briefings, it would begin: First, make no news. No problem there; the beat reporters know the rules, including what not to ask. After George Zimmerman and his family received death threats, Gabe Finger, a high-school intern at The Daily Caller, asked press secretary Jay Carney whether the president planned on taking any action to protect the Zimmermans or were they on their own. Carney answered that he was not aware of any threats another favorite dodge in this White House. Then he hit the intern for making a ridiculous statement. You see, Finger asked a question that a conservative might ask. And to this White House, with this press corps, that is utterly ridiculous.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.More sunshine, pleaseI wonder if I should bring beer or a dessert to Belleair Shore meetings? The town of Belleair Shore commission decided to hold a workshop meeting on July 22 at Commissioner Robert E. Schmidt Jr.s home. Such meetings, at the very least, violate the spirit of the states Sunshine Law, which requires meetings of public boards to be open to the public. According to a 2008 state attorney generals opinion, public boards or commissions are advised to avoid holding meetings at places where the public and the press are effectively excluded. Im not sure that everybody, including some town residents, would feel comfortable walking into a home where a government meeting is held, even if there was a sign on the door that said, Yall come on in! The attorney generals opinion was in response to a question about whether the Village of Highland Park, located south of Lake Wales, would violate the Sunshine Law by meeting in a private hone. The attorney writing the opinion said he was not aware that this office has directly addressed the matter of a public meeting being held in a private home, but suggested that the concerns expressed would apply to any space in which the Village of Highland Park chooses to hold its public meetings. I know its hard sometimes for Belleair Shore, population 87, to make meeting arrangements, and even get quorums among its board members. However, if the towns government fails to hold its commission meetings in places that are easily recognizable as public facilities, then the government may leave the impression that it is indifferent to the publics right to know, which is a cornerstone of a free society. Even if baseball star Ryan Howard offered to open his mansion to the public for a commission meeting, Id cry foul. Getting thereFor those motorists who travel frequently through the intersection of Seminole Boulevard and Ulmerton Road and want to know whats up with the construction work, heres an update. According to Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kristen Carson, the section of the road work from 119th Street to the Seminole Bypass Canal is on schedule and expected to be finished in the fall. the contractor is on time, however, we have had a pretty wet summer so we will continue to grant weather days as necessary, Karson said. The right sections of Seminole Boulevard and Ridge Road are currently being widened and are having new curbs and gutters installed. The left roadway for 101st Street needs to be widened and have new curbs and gutters installed still. There is still remaining median work that needs to be done. Resurfacing and final striping also remains, she said. Another phase of the project, from the Seminole Bypass Canal to El Centro/ Ranchero Boulevard, is expected to be completed in the summer of 2015.Remembering Matthew Slightly over a year ago, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton of Largo died of wounds he suffered while encountering an enemy explosive device in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. In a show of strong support, hundreds or more of area residents lined Ulmerton Road and other streets Aug. 10, 2012, as the soldier was brought in a mortorcade to a Belleair Bluffs funeral home. Sitton, a paratrooper, was an outstanding soldier having been awarded a Bronze Star Medal, the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster, the Army Achievement Medal and the Army Good Conduct Medal. His training included Airborne School, Long Range Reconnaissance Course, U.S. Army Ranger Course, U.S. Army Sniper School, Warriors Leader Course and Advanced Leaders Course. When he died Aug. 2, 2012, Sitton was on his second combat deployment to Afghanistan. I wish his family well and hope that he remains in the thoughts and prayers of the community as when we honor the men and women in the Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for our country.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond @TBNweeklhy.com. Tom Germond One of the most practiced conversational art forms is small talk. Sooner or later we must all engage in it, whether we want to or not. Mrs. Havisham is waiting for her bus. Her neighbor, Mr. Flark, whom she barely knows, approaches and stands beside her. Neither of them really wants to chat, but neither wants to appear standoffish. What is the compromise solution? Small talk. Lovely morning, isnt it? Oh, yes. Although some rain is predicted. Ah, yes. But we can use it. Weather is probably the most common topic in doing small talk. Thats because everyone is subject to it. The same thing goes for sex, although that sex small talk is trickier, and is usually confined to persons who know each other well. Another area that small talkers are wise to avoid is religion. Mr. Partridge, Ive been reading that your church is trying to attract Guatemalan atheists into the fold. Are you crazy? Such a remark usually ends the small talk, and may lead to gunfire. Health issues can lend themselves to small talk. Again, discretion must be exercised. To use My hemorrhoids are killing me! as an opening line pretty well dooms the conversation from the very start. Chitchat is an alternative form of small talk. Chitchat exchanges usually go on longer than small talk. Also, chitchat is more common among women. No self-respecting man would say, Charlie and I were just chitchatting. Or just chatting. The No. 1 small-talk topic for men is sports. The opening line is usually, How bout them Rays? Better-educated men say, How bout those Rays? The British say, Have you noticed the superlative performance of the Kent-Sheffield cricketeers recently? Smashing, wouldnt you say, old boy? A frightening side of small talk is when you meet someone who obviously wants to do more than make idle, inane comments. This sometimes occurs when the airline pilot has developed food poisoning and the plane youre on will be 80 minutes late taking off. How do you thwart a determined would-be gabber, when youre hopelessly trapped alongside him or her? Here are a few lines that usually bring a halt to unwanted small talk: I have a knife in my pocket. It will stay there as long as you stay silent and dont move. Are you washed in the blood of the lamb? The spirit of L. Ron Hubbard shall never die! Another method of avoiding small talk is to speak in a foreign language, preferably one youve just made up. On one occasion, a wedding reception, I was placed next to a woman who began to regale me about her grandchildren. I replied, Da novia meskup fa rangoo per ellingstork. From that point we just sat quietly and enjoyed our duck lorange. At other times you may welcome small talk. To encourage a person to open up, just ask leading questions. Have you ever been divorced? Please tell me about it. Whose fault was it? Your spouse was a real dork, right? Art shows are the toughest places to make small talk with complete strangers, especially if you know very little about art. When that happens, you should gossip about the net worth of the guy hosting the show, and how he made his bundle. Were you aware that his first wife was a bisexual niece of Picasso who stole six of his paintings and cashed them in? I live in a condominium complex, most of whose residents own a dog or a cat. These pets provide an excellent entry point for small talk. Thats a magnificent Great Dane you have, sir. Where did you buy his saddle? What a pretty kitty, mam. What is her name? Its a boy. His name is Cedric. And so on. I know the names of more pets than I do their owners. A lady on the 4th floor has a tiny dog, a female, called Fenway. The lady is a Boston Red Sox fan. Their home field is Fenway Park. Thats how it goes with small talk. If you pay attention you can compile a huge amount of information. At parties, a useful tool in escaping from a boring small-talk session is to carry a kitchen timer in your pocket. Set it in advance so that the beeper goes off after five minutes. When that happens, just smile and say, Sorry, but its time for my dialysis. Then walk away. Better yet, ask a friend to come to your rescue when you give him/her a high sign, such as tugging your ear. When you signal, the friend rushes up excitedly and says to you, Spielbergs office just called. He wants to talk about that script you sent him. Youd better ring him back right away.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

Get rid of daily press briefings at the White HouseInvest in residents safetyEditor: I have lived on Indian Rocks Beach for three and a half years and consider it paradise. The people, the nightlife, and of course the beach are splendid. One bothersome issue however is the lack of crosswalks at the beach accesses and for years I have heard that something will be done about it. Now its too late. One of my neighbors was recently hit by a vehicle while walking across Gulf Boulevard and has been seriously injured. I wonder if there is a quota on how many accidents have to happen before the city can invest in a few gallons of paint and make it safe for pedestrians to cross? It is too late for my neighbor but hopefully our local officials can see this as the one too many lives endangered by a lack of safety for pedestrians on Gulf Boulevard. I have seen many close calls with children and their parents lugging stuff back from the beach and no safe place to cross. One resident seriously injured is one too many. Can we please make the investment in safety for our residents and especially our children? Jimmy Suvoy Indian Rocks BeachRestaurant couponers, bewareEditor My husband and I had a very bad experience with a local restaurant when we tried to use our $25 coupon. We were told that they were out of lobster tails and fillet mignon at 4:45 p.m. on a Monday, July 29. We had to order a minimum of $37.50 in order to use the coupon. My husband ordered a special at the restaurant, which was not covered by the coupon so the entire $37.50 was for me to order. Wow, have you tried to order that much without that steak or a lobster tail? This was our 52nd anniversary so needless to say, we walked out and wont ever go back. I do think that this restaurant pulled a fast one on us. Only wish that we could name it and give all the folks a heads-up on how they treat their customers. Linda Simon LargoA charity worthy of supportEditor: Here in Pinellas County we have the Religious Community Services, which is not well known but has been in existence for the past 40 years and serves thousands of people every year. The RCS is comprised of a thrift store on East Bay Drive, which helps finance the RCS Food Bank on Druid Avenue, the Grace House, which provides housing for homeless families, and the Haven of RCS and its outreach ministries for battered women and their children.

Yet it is the cool wisdom of the latters famous poem, The Road Not Taken, that wistfully frames something marvelous and mysterious that the dolphins do at sea: use roads.Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth.A vivid example of dolphins using something like sunken streets occurred recently. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched 11 bottlenose dolphins trekking along one of their watery roads alone or in pairs. That there are roads at sea at all is startling. Dolphin Watch reported this in 2006 as Do as I Do behavior, wherein one or more dolphin groups take the same course across a waterway as a dolphin group that preceded it. It is hard to get used to the idea of undersea roads. From a boat, estuarine waters appear to be molded only by the visible shoreline. Yet, underwater paths appear to be as obvious to dolphins as paths through cornfields to Nebraska teenagers, mountain foliage to Utah moose, or thick reeds to African elephants.Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same.The dolphin road we watched, a little grassy and just as fair, certainly was in want of wear. It stretches across a boxy bay that was more popular with dolphins years ago than it is today. X and her yearling Xanion were the first to appear. Like this stretch of road, X is a periodic visitor. Her yearling announced their presence by bouncing and blurting around the boat. X may have called him back, for he abruptly returned to her side. They let us amble along as they flowed to the north shoreline and headed west. About to head north ourselves to continue our survey, we glimpsed dolphins behind us. We headed back to see Forest and her 2-year-old Meadow. Done with the mornings hunting lesson, they literally rambled along the same route that X and Xanion had taken. Again about to head north to continue our survey, we again glimpsed dolphins behind us. In a nautical dj vu, we retraced the route yet again. Face and her yearling Facet took the same path as the two pairs before them. En route, Face demonstrated how dolphins sometimes encounter food that entices them to stop, spin and scare up a snack like an idly munching hiker. And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back.As Face and Facet got to the north shoreline and headed west as X and Forest had done, the dorsal fin of a single dolphin flashed in the distance behind us. Js unmistakable fin showed that she had taken a side road to the north shoreline. We saw no sign of her newborn, which should have been four days old. J headed west like the three pairs before her, but unlike them vanished at speed. Ready to head north to continue our survey, we scanned the waters behind us. A fourth pair appeared in the distance where we first found X. Heidemann retraced our steps once again. Valiant fell in step with us, swimming with protracted strokes that moved her forward gradually. Thus lingering, she waited for the small fin darting off the path to eventually catch up: her calf Vidalia. Back on the path, they ambled to the north shoreline and headed west. We had spent over an hour tracing the same watery route to watch four mother-calf pairs and one mom. But it wasnt over. Unbelievably, a fifth pair of dolphins appeared behind us. It was difficult to catch up to them, for they were propelled by the vigor of youth. They veered off the path to surf a passing yacht. Only then did teen Juno and Pastel reveal themselves by slowing and strolling with X, Face and their baby boys.I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.If tomorrow a behaviorist can say, that at two roads of low and high, a dolphin paused to ponder his way, regretting his choice some distant day, I too shall be telling this with a sigh.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

To dolphins, the underwater world may be a maze of well-trodden streets. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver TIERRA VERDE Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting volunteer boats to participate in the 20th annual Great Bay Scallop Search, set for Saturday, Aug. 24. The event is a resource-monitoring program where community volunteers snorkel to search for scallops in select areas within Boca Ciega and Lower Tampa bays. The event has been conducted annually since 1993 with the goal to monitor and document the health and status of the bay scallop population. Tampa Bay Watch will coordinate 45 volunteer boaters with more than 180 participants to search selected sites for the elusive bay scallops. Volunteers with shallow draft boats are still needed for the event. For information, visit tampabaywatch.org. We can witness the health of the bay by tracking the number of scallops found each year, said Peter Clark in a press release. Clark is president of Tampa Bay Watch. Every year we hope the number of scallops found increases, which means that water quality and habitat are also improving in our estuary. Some years, volunteers find many scallops and other years they dont. Factors that may affect the scallop population include red tide, high rainfall and storms. An all time event high of 674 scallops were found in 2009. Bay scallops, disappeared from Tampa Bay in the early 1960s when the bay water was highly polluted from dredging operations and industrial and municipal wastes. Tampa Bays water quality and seagrass beds have since improved to levels that will once again support the bay scallop population. In fact, a 2013 research study data by Southwest Florida Water Management Districts Surface Water Improvement and Management Program states Tampa Bay now supports 34,642 acres of seagrass beds, the largest amount of seagrass measured since the 1950s. Reservations are required for the Great Bay Scallop Search. Registered scallop searchers will meet Saturday, Aug. 24, 9 a.m., at the eastern side of the boat ramp at Fort De Soto County Park, in Tierra Verde. There, they will receive survey equipment and instructions for the monitoring event. At each site, a weighted transect line 50 meters in length is laid along seagrass beds. Snorkelers count scallops along each side of the transect line, within one meter of each side, creating a 100-square-meter survey area. This year the Sea World Busch Gardens Conservation Fund and the Tampa Bay Estuary Program sponsor the scallop search. Bay scallops or Argopecten irradians are secretive bivalves in the same family as clams and oysters. They may reach a shell size of 3 inches and spend their short 12to 18-month life span hiding in seagrasses of waters like Tampa Bay. Scallops are filter feeders, therefore they are highly sensitive to changes in water quality and can be used to measure an ecosystems health and signal changes in water quality. Adult bay scallops can pump as much as 15.5 quarts of water per hour improving water quality resulting in long term growth of seagrass beds. Although bay scallops are edible, it is illegal to harvest scallops in Tampa Bay in order for restoration efforts to be successful. Tampa Bay Watch is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) stewardship program dedicated to the charitable and scientific purpose of protecting and restoring the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary.

PETERSBURG Bon Secours St. Petersburg Health System recently was honored with the LeadingAge Florida Quality First Award at the 50th annual LeadingAge Florida Convention & Exposition in Orlando. The health system was recognized among other LeadingAge Florida members for its commitment to ensuring an extraordinary experience of care as particularly outlined by LeadingAge Floridas 10 Elements of Quality. Over the past year, as an integral focus of its efforts to transform its health delivery, Bon Secours St. Petersburg has sought to enhance the potential of its staff in the delivery of skilled nursing and rehabilitation, assisted living, and home care services to seniors in the Tampa Bay area. In light of advanced medical practice and health reforms increasing shift to treat patients conditions in the lowest cost settings of care, healthcare providers are experiencing an influx in the heightened acuity of patients across the continuum, said Karen Reich in a press release. Reich is CEO of Bon Secours St. Petersburg. For instance, patients who were previously admitted to the hospital for days to undergo a hip replacement, are now being discharged overnight to inpatient rehabs, skilled nursing facilities, and even home. The delivery and coordination of exceptional care requires a workforce that is exceedingly proficient, apt to serve, and all-round extraordinary. As Bon Secours St. Petersburg forges alliances externally to bridge the full continuum of care, the organization has also sought to drive continuous quality improvement in its own post-acute services by enhancing the engagement of its workforce especially through the development of the nursing staffs clinical acumen. To accomplish this end, the organization developed a robust education plan to address the increasing acuity level of patients. Health newsUsing a competency-based model developed in coordination with its area hospitals but within the regulated scope of services for each entity, Bon Secours St. Petersburg strives to better define expectations and assess performance for its nursing staff. In 2012, in order to facilitate the work associated with the delivery of staff education, the organization created a full-time RN Clinical Education Coordinator to organize curriculum, coordinate its delivery, and assess outcomes. The oversight for this position is provided by Jane Woolley, the organizations Director of Quality & Risk, who holds a doctorate in education from Columbia University and who also serves as a licensed continuing education provider. To date, the success of the education program can be demonstrated through Bon Secours Maria Manors attainment of the Florida Gold Seal in 2013, as well as it and Bon Secours St. Petersburg Home Cares Joint Commission re-accreditation surveys in 2012. While health reform casts a cloud of uncertainty over the present state of healthcare operations nationally, said Emily Morgan, Bon Secours St. Petersburgs Board Quality Chair, I am certain of Bon Secours St. Petersburgs ability to thrive and endure.Walk to End Alzheimers setST. PETERSBURG The Alzheimers Associations Walk to End Alzheimers will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Bright House Field in Clearwater. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. The walk will start at 10 a.m. Walk to End Alzheimers is a united movement to reclaim the future for millions. Nearly 1,400 people from the Pinellas area are expected at this years event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimers disease. Participants will participate in a 2-mile walk and will learn more about Alzheimers disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment, and support programs and services of the Alzheimers Association. Each walker will also join in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimers disease. To start or join a team today, call 259-2317 or visit act.alz.org/Pinel las.Majeed receives awardST. PETERSBURG The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to finding treatments and cures for vision-robbing retinal diseases, recently recognized St. Petersburg resident Kamal Majeed with its Outstanding New Trustee Award. The annual honor acknowledges notable contributions and sustained commitment to the foundations mission during the first three years of trusteeship. Majeed became a foundation trustee in 2010 and has worked to raise research funds and awareness within the Tampa Bay community. He has cochaired the Tampa/St. Petersburg Dining in the Dark for the last three years, engaging top community leaders and philanthropists. Over the past four years, when Majeed has been involved with Dining in the Dark, the event has raised more than half a million dollars. President and CEO of Tampa-based NexTech Systems, Majeed is motivated in the fight against blindness because his late mother experienced vision loss later in life, and his mother-in-law is now losing her sight to age-related macular degeneration. Without inspiring trustee leaders like Kamal Majeed, the Foundation Fighting Blindness would not be in the position we are today-actually restoring vision in human clinical trials, said Bill Schmidt in a press release. Schmidt is CEO of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. We are truly grateful for his ongoing drive to make a difference for the more than 10 million Americans living with retinal diseases. Im truly honored to receive this award from the Foundation Fighting Blindness, said Majeed.

Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $23. Call 813-229-7827 or visit www.strazcenter .org. From the opening theme of Showtimes The Big C to the infectiously happy Big Smile that propelled this Summers Olympic Samsung Galaxy S III commercial, Leftover Cuties are a band millions have heard but its entirely possible that many may not know who is behind the music. Securing Game Called Life as the theme for The Big C helped put Leftover Cuties on the map, but whether its the artful placement of Through It All on the hot FX series Justified, or their cover of When Youre Smiling that is now leading the way on a worldwide Hyundai campaign, the Cuties sound is starting to catch fire thanks to their irresistible combination of sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting and old-school musicianship. According to the bands biography provided by Girlie Action a media, marketing and management company Leftover Cuties embodied all of the good things in life on their debut album Places To Go things such as Love songs, California sunsets and the ukulele. The album was produced by Tony Berg and features 11 breezy, sophisticated songs evoke a magic-hour stroll on the beach with a special someone. Their sound is difficult to describe. To call Leftover Cuties retro or throwback would be too easy, yet, their music fits beside Billie Holiday. At the same time, its remarkably current in its sex appeal, its sophistication and its confidence. The Cuties music plied with upright bass, accordion, the brushed drums and ukulele is not slavishly old-timey, but honors its forebears in an appropriate and appealing way. There is a faithfulness to melody combined with sharp playing and stylized, confident, character-laden singing.

Each year, Gulfport celebrates the end of summer with its largest festival of the year, dedicated to the towns unofficial mascot and favorite reptile. The festival has grown to become one of Tampa Bays most anticipated events of the year. Entertainment in the streets is one of the hallmarks of Geckofest, with many both strolling and stationary performers interacting with visitors. This years festival will bring more action, fun and thrills to the streets than ever before. Live mermaids will be visiting in a rare display. The curator of the exhibit will give details on the history of mermaids, their habits and habitats, before drawing the curtain to reveal one of the visiting mermaids. These sea women of lore can be viewed up close behind the glass of a giant water tank. Naturally curious, a mermaid may surface from the water to interact with onlookers. Getting close to her may mean getting splashed. The mermaid exhibit will be located in the heart of the festival. The Mcandless Aerial Troupe will be on hand to perform acts of anti-gravity grace, including aerial acrobatics, long distance drops, hanging Spanish web rope maneuvers and more. The Acromaniacs will show off an array of thrilling acrobatics including extreme flipping and body balancing stunts combined with comedy. Dallas, a well-known Tampa Bay area performer, will combine comedy and juggling, as well as amazing feats of strength and balance. Donning his trademark color orange, stunt comedian Wacky Chad will combine clowning with such stunts as carrying passengers on a miniature bicycle to balancing shopping carts on his face. His extreme pogo stick stunts will amaze festival goers and his comedy antics will keep visitors in stitches. Seasoned magician, mentalist and entertainer Anton James will display a variety of illusions, including assorted magic tricks large and small, mind reading and mind games, and other entertainment in a high-energy style. Capping off the festivities, the Fireshow by Mayhem will showcase a troupe of performers who will dance with, play with, manipulate, swallow and have full body contact with fire. The finale will include a rocket staff spun by a performer like a baton with live fireworks attached to each end. Audience members will gather in a circle surrounding the performance area and are able to view the pyrotechnics from close up. The fire show returns to Geckofest by popular demand and has thrilled audiences on every occasion. Attendees also will find face painters, balloon artists, stilt walkers, drummers, a living statue and more street entertainers throughout the day. Other costumed performers, including pirates, gypsies, faeries, and of course geckos will be strolling through the village during Geckofest, creating a quirky, vibrant and colorful scene enjoyable for visitors of all ages. Geckofest visitors are encouraged to come in costume. Many of the Geckofest performers also will march alongside costumed visitors in the annual walking parade, which will be led by Gulfports Mayor Emeritus, and include the o-FISH-al Gecko Goddess, as well as the new Gecko Queen and her Court.

The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission one that pits him against Elysiums Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.I Give It a YearGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Rose Byrne, Rafe Spall, Anna Faris, Simon Baker, Stephen Merchant, Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng and Olivia Colman Director: Dan Mazer Rated: R I Give It a Year is a brand new comedy from the writer of Borat and Bruno that lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage. Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Rose Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Rafe Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nats a doer, but the spark between them is undeniable. Their wedding is a dream come true, but no one family, friends and even the minister who marries them is convinced that they will last. Joshs exgirlfriend, Chloe (Anna Faris), and Nats handsome American client Guy (Simon Baker) could offer attractive alternatives. With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?In a WorldGenre: Comedy Cast: Lake Bell, Michaela Watkins, Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Fred Melamed and Tig Notaro Director: Lake Bell Rated: R Underachieving voice coach Carol Solomon (Bell) not only lives in the house of her egotistical father, Sam Sotto (Melamed), but also in the massive shadow he casts as the undisputed king of the vicious, male-dominated world of movie-trailer voiceovers. When Sam kicks her out to make room for his girlfriend Jamie (Holden), Carol lands her first voice-over gig with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Martin), beating out industry bad boy Gustav Warner (Marino) for the job. Proving its no fluke, she soon lines up two more projects in quick succession. At an industry party, Carol has a one-night stand with the seductive Gustav, neither realizing who the other is. Its only later that Gustav learns Carol is the thief who stole the V.O. job from him and vows to make her pay. Soon afterwards, Sam discovers Carol is in the running to become the official voice of a blockbuster, female-centered movie quadrilogy. Threatened by his own daughters rising star, Sam tries to discourage her while secretly pushing his reps to land him the gig instead. As romantic sparks begin to fly between her and Louis, and with her budding career and sense of self on the line, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision: Whether to give in to her fathers bullying or go all out for the job and finally begin living life on her own terms.Prince AvalancheGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, Lance LeGault, Joyce Payne, Gina Grande and Lynn Shelton Director: David Gordon Green Rated: R Driven by striking performances from Rudd and Hirsch, Prince Avalanche is an offbeat comedy about two men painting traffic lines on a desolate country highway thats been ravaged by wildfire. Against this dramatic setting, beautifully shot by Tim Orr, the men bicker and joke with each other, eventually developing an unlikely friendship. Funny, meditative and at times surreal, Prince Avalanche features a moving score by Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo, and was loosely adapted from an Icelandic film called Either Way.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly .com.

Her voice is sultry and aching with longing, yet in control. When McAllen first moved to Los Angeles from her native Israel (where she served in the army), she was still finding her way musically. I grew up listening to Israeli music, s grunge rock and singer songwriters, McAllen says in the Girlie Action bio. After a couple of years trying to make her mark in the citys crowded singer-songwriter scene a lot of good writers and singers, but not a lot of memorable personalities she struck up a friendship with multi-instrumentalist and Cuties bass player Austin Nicholsen. One day, Austin walks in with a ukulele, McAllen says, I thought it was a toy. He started playing and I started singing the lyrics. We wrote Game Called Life in about five minutes. With a newly defined musical direction, the duo dubbed themselves Leftover Cuties. Stuart Johnson (drums), and Mike Bolger (keys, horns, and accordion) came on board to flesh out the sound, and the band was off and running. In 2010, that sweet tune written on a napkin in five minutes was tabbed as the theme song for the acclaimed Showtime series The Big C starring Laura Linney. The bands fan base swelled exponentially. The Spark & The FireNow the band has a new album to promote. The Spark & The Fire was released July 23. The title of the album stands for that yearning to hold on to the beginning of things, says McAllen on the bands website, www.leftovercuties.com. The part where everything feels new and pure, where theres excitement and promise of great things to come. The Los Angeles-based noir-pop quartet Leftover Cuties released their sophomore full-length album as well as its first single, One Heart, a powerhouse track filled with handclaps and stomping percussion. The band also released a video for One Heart. The Barcelona-filmed video features a brassy jazz-pop orchestra lead by McAllen in a prohibition-era mansion. This time around, the band has created a 12-track journey that swings easily from smoke-filled Bourbon Street speakeasies to quiet island getaways. McAllens silky voice provides the hook as the bands sound pulls listeners in with upright bass, accordion, piano, brass, brushed drums, and the trademark ukulele. Like many second albums, the creation of The Spark & the Fire proved to be a difficult process. I think we all came into it with big expectations, and we put a lot of pressure on ourselves, McAllen says. Sometimes that can get in the way, but we managed to rise above and make something were really proud of. Leftover Cuties are supporting the new album with a full U.S. tour. The band has performed alongside Shelby Lynne, Alabama Shakes, Saint Motel, the Be Good Tanyas and many more.Photo courtesy of GIRLIE ACTIONThe Leftover Cuties are touring in support of their new album, The Spark & The Fire. LEFTOVER CUTIES, from page 2BDolphin Tale sequel comingWinter will share the spotlight with another rescued dolphin By LESTER R. DAILEYCLEARWATER The press release that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium sent out on the morning of July 26 was short, cryptic and unexpected. Florida Gov. Rick Scott would be at the aquarium at 3:30 that afternoon to assist its executives and staffers in making a major announcement regarding the facility. This is a big day, not just for CMA but also for our city, county and state, David Yates, the aquariums CEO, told the hastily assembled crowd of reporters and dignitaries. He then introduced Scott, who explained the importance of CMA and its movie star dolphin, Winter, to Clearwater, Pinellas County and the state of Florida. To marine biologists, Winter is an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. But to CMA officials, she is a cash cow. Scott said that 750,000 people, including 400,000 from out of state, visited CMA last year. They were part of the 93 million visitors to our state last year. And he said that Winter was one of the states major tourist attractions. Scott then gave Yates an award for directly or indirectly bringing 3,000 jobs to Florida. Scott said that, on a previous visit to CMA, he got into the frame of a photo of Winter that his wife was preparing to take. She told him to get out of the photo, thereby proving that Winter was a bigger celebrity than the governor of Florida. Scott then said that at the urging of two lawmakers from Pinellas County, State Sen. Jack Latvala and State Rep. Ed Hooper, the state Legislature has agreed to subsidize a Dolphin Tale sequel to the tune of $5 million. The odds are that well get a great return on our investment, Scott said. Im thrilled that Dolphin Tale II is going to be filmed right here in Florida. Films can work; we just need to get a great return. How cool is that? Yates asked the crowd. We have a sequel, guys. Like the original Dolphin Tale, the sequel will star Winter, who was rescued from a crab trap line near Cape Canaveral when she was 3 months old. She subsequently lost her necrotic tail but learned to swim using a prosthetic tail and became the star of the CMA show. It will co-star Winters friend, Hope, whose story is similar to Winters except that she didnt lose her tail. The $5 million will be given to CMA with the stipulation that it only be used for the production of a Dolphin Tale sequel. Warner Brothers affiliate Alcon Entertainment, which produced the original movie, will also produce the sequel. The good news is that all the (original) actors are back, Yates said. They include Morgan Freeman, Kris Kristofferson, Harry Connick Jr., and Ashley Judd. Dolphin Tale was a great success, becoming a top hit, Yates said. The story will basically pick up Winters life story and introduce Hope. Production is expected to start in September of this year and end next January. The movie is scheduled to be released on Sept. 19, 2014. It is exciting, Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos said of the sequel. Winters is a story that inspires people such as handicapped children and disabled veterans. Its hot in Clearwater, Cretekos added. But weve got Winter 365 days a year.Photo courtesy of CMAHope, seen in the foreground, is Winters co-star in a sequel to a Dolphins Tale, scheduled for release in September 2014. This photo was taken in January not long after the two bottlenose dolphins began sharing the same tank at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Engelbert Humperdinck, Wednesday, Sept. 11, 7:30 p.m., at The Mahaffey, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $39. Call 893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey.com. Humperdinck, born Arnold George Dorsey, was known on stage as Gerry Dorsey and took the name, Engelbert Humperdinck, a 19th century German composer of operas, on the suggestion of his manager in the mid-1960s. It was Humperdinck, not Elvis, that made famous the sideburns and flamboyant leather jumpsuits. His 1967 signature tune, Release Me (And Let Me Love Again) from his debut album was a No. 1 hit in 11 countries and appeared on the British charts for 56 weeks, preventing the Beatles double A-side release, Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, from reaching the top position. It was his voice, a legend in the music industry for the last 40 years, that has endeared him to global audiences of all ages including royalty, presidents and heads of states. Humperdinck has released more than 80 albums of ballads earning 63 Gold, 24 Platinum record awards, four Grammy nominations and a Golden Globe for Entertainer of the Year in 1988. During his concert tour, Humperdinck will debut a virtual duet with Elton John and other selections from his upcoming Duets CD along with iconic songs from his vast catalogue, such as Release Me, Spanish Eyes, There Goes My Everything, The Last Waltz, Am I that Easy to Forget, A Man without Love, Quando, Quando, Quando, Ten Guitars and After the Lovin. Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Sunday, Sept. 15, 7 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $49.50. Call 893-7832 or visit TheMahaffey.com. Maze, a soul/quiet storm band established in the early 1970s, will perform. Formerly known as The Butlers and later Raw Soul with the multi-talented Frankie Beverly as songwriter, record producer, arranger, singer, keyboardist and guitarist, the band became Maze.Tampa First Responders Tribute Concert, Friday, Aug. 9, 7 to 11 p.m., at Hard Rock Caf, 5223 N. Orient Road, Tampa. Visit www.seminole hardrocktampa.com. All first responders get in free with their badge, and the first 500 get a commemorative T-shirt. Mike Cowhead Calta of The Cowhead Show on 102.5 The Bone will emcee the benefit concert as well as perform with his band Pitbull Toddler. Scream Machine will also perform. The event is restricted to 21 and older. Cost is a suggested donation of $10. There will also be a silent auction featuring rockin items such as guitars signed by Sum 41 and Gavin DeGraw. All funds raised benefit first responder charities including the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Offices Lynn Sowers Memorial Foundation and Hillsborough Firefighters Benevolent Relief Fund. Scream Machine was formed in 2010 with members Jay Hajj (vocals), Craig Johnston (guitar/vocals), Dave Wrenn (drums), and Brad Keith (bass). The band plays s, s and current hard-rocking hits. Formed out of the popular Cowhead Show in 2008, Pitbull Toddler has kicked in the door of the Tampa music scene with their combination of blues/metal driven originals and popular covers. The members, Cowhead (bass), Galvin (drums), John Brennan (guitar/vocals), Pete Larios (guitar) and Josh Maloney (vocals), have been performing for nearly a decade in separate projects throughout the area. It was not until Pitbull Toddler, however, that the five reached the potential, the decibel levels and high enough temperatures. Eddie Money, Sunday, Sept. 1, 9 p.m., at Hard Rock Caf, 5223 N. Orient Road, Tampa. General admission tickets are $40. Call 800745-3000 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. Attendees must be 21 or older. Doors will open one hour prior to show. In 1968, after serving as a New York City police officer for two years, Money put his law enforcement career on hold to pursue music. He moved to Berkeley, Calif., and began performing at local clubs. In 1976, after changing his surname from Mahoney to Money, Eddies fate changed when he was introduced to legendary promoter Bill Graham while performing at one of Grahams events. The two quickly became close, with Graham serving as both his mentor and manager. Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977. Fans immediately fell in love with his sound, and the album, which went double platinum, featured hits like Baby Hold On and Two Tickets to Paradise. Money followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the eras most creative videos for songs like Think Im in Love and Shakin. In 1986, the singer released Cant Hold Back, which featured the classic, Grammy-nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, Take Me Home Tonight.
