P a g e 1 3 A Fire chief to retireGeorge Besslers last day set for Aug. 30; Terry Tokarz to step up as interim chief By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE After leading Seminole Fire Rescue for the last three years and 31 years of total service to the city, Fire Chief George Bessler is stepping down. Bessler informed City Manager Frank Edmunds of his retirement, which goes into effect on Aug. 30, by email on Aug. 1. Terry Tokarz, currently the assistant fire chief, will take over as interim fire chief while Edmunds conducts a nationwide search for a permanent replacement. In his email to Edmunds, Bessler wrote: It has been my pleasure to serve the City of Seminole and the greater Seminole community for over 31 years. I have truly enjoyed and have found it very rewarding to work with dedicated emergency response personnel that sincerely care about the wellbeing of each other and our community. I have also been fortunate to work for a City Manager that genuinely cares about the welfare of our employees and of the community. Bessler, 53, will join the East Lake Fire Rescue Department as assistant fire chief of training/EMS. He served as training chief with Seminole Fire Rescue for seven years and said he dearly loved doing that work, providing training for firefighters. While he said serving as fire chief has been extremely rewarding, he wants to finish up his career in public service in a position he loves. I enjoyed that aspect of the position, but Im young enough and healthy enough to go back and do what I love doing, he said. He plans to permanently retire when hes 60.George has served the greater Seminole area very well during his successful career and has Features Classieds . . . . . . . . .7-9B Community . . . . . . . . . .7A County . . . . . . . . . . . .6A Entertainment . . . . . .1-6, 10B Faith & family . . . . . . . .15A Health & tness . . . . . . . .12A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .14A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .10A Police beat . . . . . . . . .8-9A Real Estate . . . . . . . . .11A Seminole . . . . . . . . . . .3A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .16A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Girl Scouts from Troop No. 422 earned a Bronze Award by working with a ministry at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo to crochet plastic bags into sleeping mats for homeless individuals the church serves. ...

During the 2013 legislative session in Tallahassee, Mayor Waters took her own personal time and resources to advocate both the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives. Her focus was one of several legislative bills and initiatives that would have been detrimental to the budget of the City of Seminole. Mayor Waters, a former state legislator, appreciates the fact that legislators have scores of important issues to deal with each Legislative Session. It is crucial that local government officials educate legislators on issues of importance to cities, the government closest to the people, she said. Her efforts were critical to the grassroots advocacy of the statewide FLC and the Tampa Bay regions Suncoast League of Cities.Waters honored by the Florida League of Cities By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE In preparation for the fall 2013 semester, which begins on Monday, Aug. 19, St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus saw significant changes and construction this summer. The college spent $4.5 million, primarily from the states Public Education Capital Outlay funds, to enhance 12 areas on campus. Its all part of a major thrust to put the facilities in place to ensure students success, said Provost Dr. James Olliver. The first construction project was completed in mid-July, when the college bookstore relocated from the University Partnership building to a larger space in the library building that once housed a caf. This move cost $150,000 and was funded entirely by Barnes and Noble. The vacated space in the UP building will be used to expand the caf in that building, doubling its size, Olliver said. This project will begin in the fall. The most significant changes made to the UP building this summer include the construction of a large recreational Student Activities Center and technology upgrades to the Digitorium video wall. A computer lab was remodeled to create the SAC, which was previously located in a much smaller office. The college also recently promoted Malena Buck, formerly a student adviser, to coordinator of Student Life and Leadership. With this new space, shell begin a peer advisory program this semester. The Digitorium Video Wall, which hadnt been upgraded since it was originally constructed over 10 years ago, now features leading edge technology, Olliver said. Previously, the wall used three screens, but now its one solid wall and the image covers the entire wall, he said. The UP buildings Artway, a small hallway used to showcase area and SPC artists, also saw enhancements this summer, including the installation of track lighting and more visible signage.SPC focuses on campus enhancements over summer See SPC, page 4AWelch discusses budget, EMS services in second state of the county address By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch released his second state of the county address Aug. 2. Topics included next years budget, emergency medical services, transit and surface water management. The video is posted on Pinellas Countys website, www.pinellascounty.org, the countys Facebook, Twitter and on YouTube, www.youtube. com/pcctv1. This address is part of our ongoing effort to help our citizens stay connected with their local government, Welch said in a press release. Its a way of keeping our citizens up to date with important issues as initiatives and projects move forward throughout the year. Welch began his address with an update on development and the approval process for the fiscal year 2014 budget, which he describes as one of the main responsibilities of the commission. The $1.7 billion proposed budget is available for review at www.pinellascounty .org/budget. There is still time to weigh in on next years budget, Welch said.

Many care givers say that the hardest part is not the practical side but, rather, its the emotional side. It can be a heartbreaking experience watching your loved one slip away more and more each day.

Bean is assigned to Squad 29 and has been described by his officers as exceptional with his performance of his duties. He maintains a high level of compassion for his patients and is very proficient dealing with the high volume of calls that he responds to on Squad 29. As described by District Chief Bill Morelli, Nicolas exemplifies what all employees should strive for.

Bark Life expands offeringsBark Life, 11220 Park Blvd. SPC, from page 1A The Technology Learning Center building also saw significant improvements. The Learning Center, where the majority of tutoring takes place, added an informal lounge area, with a TV, couch and reference materials. This is more of a relaxation area, said Jennifer Gregor, information services librarian. It gives students the opportunity to see whats going on in the center. Technological and visual enhancements were made to the writing and math labs, with new smartboards and a wall-to-wall whiteboard. And the main area of the Learning Center was repurposed, with more seating where students can plug in their laptops, and a layout that encourages collaboration and group projects. Were being much more intentional about our tutoring services, Olliver said. Our focus is on student success. The college also constructed a brand new addition to the TL building, a more informal area with TVs, tables and vending machines. Olliver is most proud of the new science lab in the TL building, which allows SPC to offer chemistry and microbiology for the first time. A new classroom also was constructed in that wing and is ready to be converted into a second lab as soon as the funding and need is there, he said. This is a big deal for us, he said. Its very important programmatically. Now we can offer things we werent able to before. New faculty offices were also created in the TL building, as well as in the library. For the first time since we opened this campus, all full-time faculty has an office, Olliver said. These faculty members previously utilized space in the portable offices. Because they have relocated to new, permanent offices, this allowed the college to expand some of its programs into the portable buildings. The veterans program now has more than double the space it once had, making a more inviting environment for veterans seeking services on campus. Military Times named SPC one of the topPhotos by TIFFANY RAZZANOAbove, St. Petersburg College built a brand new area in the Technology Learning Center building, as part of the Learning Center, where students can take a break from studying and grab a quick snack from vending machines. Below, the library now has a Silent Study room for students who need a quieter place to work.15 most veteran friendly colleges in the country. Student Support Services also was able to expand into more space. With so much space available for study groups and those collaborating on projects around campus, Olliver saw the need for a quieter study space. So the college created the Silent Study Room in the library. Some students need that kind of quiet environment, Olliver said. Other changes in the library building include the relocation of Dr. John Chapin, the dean of Natural Sciences, as well as the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions to new second-floor offices, and the construction of the Center of Excellence in Teaching and Leaning, and Faculty Development Center. The major project in the library building, though, was the construction of a state-of-the-art tiered classroom. The classrooms design is based on Seminoles City Council chambers at City Hall, and Olliver said he hopes to hold a council meeting at SPC at some point. I think the community can be proud of what weve done this summer, Olliver said. Weve added functionality and activities that ensure students success. Emergency management servicesOne of the most important budget challenges facing our county involves our emergency medical services, or EMS fund, Welch said. EMS is a vital service provided by the county in partnership with our cities and fire districts, and with our ambulance provider, Paramedics Plus doing business as Sunstar. The countys EMS system responds to more than 136,000 calls for emergency medical assistance each year. When you dial 911 for a medical emergency in Pinellas County world class medical response is only minutes away, Welch said. The reality is however, that while the system is clinically excellent, it does face fiscal challenges due to a number of factors, including the decline in property values in recent years, combined with an increase in the cost of EMS services, including personnel, fuel costs, and medical supplies. Welch promised to update the public in his November address about efforts to implement a plan by consultant Fitch and Associates that could reduce the cost of EMS. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org and look for the link to the Fitch Report in the Special Interest section.TransportationOne thing about our community that is not yet world class is our system of public transportation, Welch said. This is especially true in the area of public transit where Pinellas and the broader Tampa Bay region lag behind every other major metropolitan area in the United States. He provided an update on the transportation and economic development plan, and the community transportation conversation GreenLight Pinellas. The foundation of this initiative is a November 2014 referendum for a 1 percent sales tax to modernize our bus system (PSTA), and add light rail connections between Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, Gateway and St. Petersburg, with an eventual connection to Tampa, Welch said. The plan also includes the elimination of the current PSTA property tax. For more information, visit GreenLightPinellas .com.Surface water managementAn important part of our countys infrastructure is our surface water management program, Welch said. Surface water management entails two important focus areas water quality and storm water management. While many Pinellas cities have a dedicated funding source for surface water management, the county does not. With higher federal and state standards for water quality, combined with an aging infrastructure of pipes, ditches and drains in the unincorporated area, the time has come for Pinellas County to address the issue of water quality and storm water management in a more effective and sustainable way. The commission is considering levying a dedicated fee to property owners in the unincorporated areas to pay for a comprehensive surface water management program. Welch said the fees would provide money to repair and refurbish older sections of stormwater pipe, dating back to 1978, which is at high risk of failure. The program will extend the life of the entire stormwater drainage system and improve the health of our environment, he said. If the commission approves the new fee, it would become effective in October. The 2014 fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

HEP receives donation to help familiesCLEARWATER The Homeless Emergency Project has been awarded a $2,500 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation to help provide necessary financial support for struggling families in Pinellas County. Funding will be used to support key program activities within HEPs Family Transition Program, which is designed to assist families in crisis to access and sustain affordable housing and achieve community integration and economic stability. The program is anticipated to serve at least 50 families, many with young children, by the end of 2013. We are incredibly grateful to have been a chosen recipient of the TD Charitable Foundations generous gift, said Zachary White, HEPs director of programs. Recent census data from Pinellas County reveals an increase in the number of homeless children, from 1,944 in 2009 to 2,100 in 2011 a 10 percent jump. The funding provided by TD Charitable Foundation will be used to help families who are struggling within our very own communities. The foundation has donated more than $100,000 to help various HEP programs and supportive services aimed at breaking the cycle of homelessness. The recent grant follows a gift of $5,000 made to HEP in August 2012 to support the same program. In fall of 2011, the foundation awarded HEP $100,000 in support of the capital campaign to raise funds to build HEP West, which consists of a 32-unit apartment complex designed specifically for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and a clubhouse for use by all HEP veterans.MOAA to meetST.

Bessler, who lives in Seminole, is president of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake and is involved with the local Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America. Tokarz, who has 25 years with Seminole Fire Rescue, said hes interested in applying for the fire chief position permanently. My belief is that most people start jobs with expectation of advancing throughout the rank, he said. You dont start in fire service immediately as fire chief; you work your way up. And Ive done that here. He added, Im excited about the opportunity and looking forward to the number one challenge of being interim fire chief and ultimately applying for the job and seeing what happens. It would be the final exclamation point on a fabulous career here. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

The amendment would prohibit gender identity discrimination under Chapter 70 of county code relating to human relations that prohibits discrimination in employment, housing and places of public accommodation, Human Rights director Paul Valenti, said during a commission meeting Aug. 6. Jurisdictions throughout Florida, as well as 17 states, have taken steps to stop discrimination stemming from a persons gender identity. In addition, legislation providing for those protections is pending in the U.S. Senate. Pinellas County leaders are evaluating the need in the local community. Valenti said the countys code currently prohibits discrimination based on ones sex. He recommends striking references to sex and replacing it with gender. County code would define gender as including but not limited to sex, pregnancy, childbirth or medical conditions relating to pregnancy, gender-related self-identity, self-image, appearance, expression or behavior, whether or not such gender-related characteristics differ from those associated with the individuals assigned sex or physiology at birth. The code exempts religious corporations, associations and societies and religious educational institutions in the areas of employment and places of public accommodation. The code also would not apply to the school district as an employer. Under the ordinance, persons who identify with a sex different from their physiology, or their sex at birth, would be permitted to use restroom and other facilities of the gender with which they identify. If there are objections, every effort should be taken to ensure fair, nondiscriminatory use of the facility for all people. Businesses can still maintain dress codes, Valenti said, as long as they allow individuals to dress in a style that best fits their gender identity. Commissioner Karen Seel, who along with Commissioner John Morroni voted against a similar amendment in 2008, asked if other jurisdictions had found it difficult to apply discrimination laws. Valenti said they had not. There was no nightmare scenario or apoplectic issue that came to fruition, he said. She also asked if there had been problems with single-sex facilities. Valenti said there had been no widespread issues. He added that improper conduct could happen regardless of sex, race or religion. He said the amendment did not require adding separate facilities for transgendered persons. He said no one would have to install a third set of restrooms. Todd Richardson with Equality Florida told commissioners that the amendment would be a very important addition for Pinellas County, making it more attractive for employers and employees. It adds protection for all people, he said, Protection no matter who they are. Michael Keefe, executive director of Trans*Action Florida, thanked the commission for moving forward with a courageous conversation. Only former sheriffs candidate Greg Pound spoke against the amendment, accusing the commission of doing evil. Commission Chair Ken Welch said it was time for the fear mongering to stop. Forty years ago it was black people in restrooms No more fear mongering. Im so over that, he said. Commissioner Norm Roche said he supports scheduling a public hearing on the matter, but he didnt voice support for the amendment. Im not into creating laws that make attorneys money The way this country is going were going to be back here adding political parties. The public hearing portion of the Aug. 20 meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Clearwater.

Heritage Village closed during tree thinning projectLARGO Heritage Village, Pinellas Countys living history museum, will be closed from Wednesday, Aug. 14 through Wednesday, Aug. 28 as crews remove several pine trees from the village grounds during a pine tree management project. Over the years, the pine trees at Heritage Village have achieved a density that is unhealthy for the trees and dangerous to Heritage Villages 28 historical structures. Many of the trees are stunted and could become stressed and vulnerable to disease. Tree thinning has long been used as an environmental management tool to promote healthy forests. In addition, trees that are dangerously close to structures within Heritage Village will be removed as well for the safety of the village and its many visitors. NRP Contractors and Bodaca Timber Inc will do the actual tree removal. Some trees will be sold to provide revenue to Heritage Village; others will be saved for use in future restoration work. Volunteer staff will be relocating benches and picnic tables, protecting pathways, roping off electrical boxes and then picking up stray tree limbs, repairing ruts and putting everything back in place when the tree-thinning project is complete. Heritage Village is located at 11909 125th St. N. in Largo. For more information about Heritage Village, visit www.pinellascounty .org/heritage, or call 582-2123.

TORRESLARGO Six 11-year-old girls from troop No. 422 earned Girl Scout Bronze Awards by learning how to crochet plastic bags into sleeping mats for the homeless. The award, the highest honor a troop of Girl Scout Juniors can achieve, is given after the girls each complete 20 hours of service. The girls worked with women at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo to learn how to cut the grocery bags into rings, tie the pieces into balls of plastic string and then crochet the strands into a soft sleeping mat. All of us made enough so somebody would be able to pick up the bag of the balls of yarn and be able to crochet the mat, explained Girl Scout Samantha West. Samantha said she was able to crochet about a fourth of a mat on her own. Im very slow at it. It took me probably 15 hours to do that, she said. The girls divided the tasks, most taking on the task of cutting and stringing the bags together. The task was tedious, and the plastic often ripped. The girls discovered that Target bags made the strongest links. In the end, the girls made enough balls of plastic yarn to make seven mats. It took us months, fellow Girl Scout Catherine Litchy said. The resulting mat, made of about 365 plastic bags, is a soft and strong cushion against the hard ground. Catherine said the project was fulfilling, just knowing that it was going to help people. Its something you dont really do every day, Sydney Chiles added. You have fun together and while youre having fun you do a really good thing for the world. Identifying their community was the first step in the project, said troop co-leader Melanie Litchy. Samantha pointed out that their project introduced the troop to new people in the community. Youre giving them something to sleep on at night, and its much better than the ground. And youre also recycling, Samantha said. Maggie Corrigan of St. Paul United Methodist Church worked with the girls, giving them the large crochet hooks needed for the project and showing them how to complete the task. The church members, after learning the skill from another church, began sleeping mat ministry in February. The mats are given out to people that need them through the churchs Open Arms ministry, she said. When she met with the girls July 29, Corrigan brought a completed mat, so the girls could see the end result of their hard work. I thought that it was important for the girls to see the mats, she said. Corrigan and other members of the church worked on the mats on their own time, like the girls did. I would hazard a guess that I probably put 10 hours into a mat, she said. Its kind of hard to tell because you cant stay at it verylong because its hard on the hands. She also brought the giant bag of rolled up plastic yarn the girls donated to the ministry. I just made a dent in that big bag of bags, Litchy said the girls were a bit disappointed that they werent able to complete a mat themselves, though Sydney and Samantha are still working on their partial mats at home. I think each girl truly felt like they made a difference, that what they did was really going to help someone, she said. Thats what its about. The troop had trouble initially picking out a project. They wanted to help so many people and so many different things that narrowing it down was difficult for them, Litchy said. The troop was at first inspired to help animals before Litchy proposed the sleeping mat project. The girls were all excited about the idea and unanimously agreed to pursue it. Photo by JULIANA A.

Theyre really making the connection in how the project worked, she said. Other members of the troop who helped with the project are Autumn Hodrick, Alexa Berg and Anna-Rose Brown.One mother wonders, where did the summertime go?The summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye. It seems like every summer goes faster and faster. I thought maybe it was just me, so I asked a few friends if they thought this summer just flew by, and they agreed. I am trying to figure out where the time goes. As I started thinking about the summer, I realized how fast my kids are growing up. They are moving up another grade level this year. Its hard to believe that my oldest daughter is going into fourth grade. In my mind, it seems like just the other day she was born. My youngest, my baby, isnt really a baby anymore: she is going into second grade. I remember the first time I took my oldest daughter to preschool. I thought it was going to be hard for her, but I think it was harder for me to let go. She was almost 4. She went to the preschool at our church and was in the VPK program, short for Voluntary PreKindergarten, a state-funded preschool program. I remember thinking three hours a day, five days a week is just such a long time to be away from my daughter. By the end of the year, those hours and days went by quickly. Before I knew it, she was graduating from VPK. After VPK, I had another first with my daughter: kindergarten. It was her first time going to school all day. I had a hard time leaving my daughter, but my daughter had a harder time letting me go. It was awful the first few weeks of school. My daughter cried every day for me not to leave her. She had a wonderful teacher, so it wasnt that. She just wanted me to be with her. After a few weeks it got better. Its just a transition kids have to go through, some more than others. In first, second and third grades, it wasnt so hard leaving my daughter. Each year, it has gotten easier. I think I am more relaxed because I know the school more, and I know the teachers better. As a parent, its hard letting your kids go to school when you watch the news and see school shootings and kids being bullied. You want to protect your kids, but most of us cant be at school with our kids. We just have to just trust that they will be safe. I would say it gets easier with the second child and it does, but I still have had my moments. I remember leaving my second daughter for the first time at preschool and just bawling my eyes out. I was sad because I knew she was the last child I would have in preschool. With my oldest daughter, everything is a first. With my second daughter, everything is the last. I still keep asking myself, Do I really have a fourth-grader and a second-grader? Moms with young kids, my best advice is to make sure you take the time to enjoy them. You cant get years back and you cant make time go any slower. Ive tried by telling my girls they cant grow up, but it hasnt worked yet.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 8, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The two were later arrested and charged with burglary of a boat and are suspects in a number of vehicle thefts in the same area. According to the sheriffs report, deputies received the initial call from Daren Nailos, 36, of Palm Harbor, who reported that his girlfriend was missing. When deputies arrived on scene, Nailos informed them he had been swimming in the water with Jessica Frehe, 36, of Dunedin and at some point lost sight of her. Frantic she could be in distress, Nailos called for emergency personnel to respond to the scene. As efforts to locate Frehe were underway, a deputy in the area spotted Frehes vehicle driving from the scene. The deputy conducted a traffic stop and discovered Frehe as the driver. While talking with Frehe and verifying her well-being, multiple reports of burglarized vehicles in the immediate area began coming into the Sheriffs Office Communications Center. After conducting further interviews with both parties it was discovered they had broken into a boat at 2671 St. Josephs Drive East. While on the boat, they stole various items to include food and alcohol. After burglarizing the vessel, they both began to swim back to shore, and Nailos lost sight of Frehe and eventually reported her as missing and possibly in distress in the water. Both admitted to the vessel burglary and were possibly involved with several vehicle burglaries nearby, the report said. Deputies are awaiting forensic results for additional charges. Nailos and Frehe were booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Each charged with burglary. Bond was set at $5,000. Frehe also is being held without bond on a Pasco County warrant.Missing sunglasses prompt investigationPALM HARBOR Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are asking for help from the public to locate a man wanted in connection with the theft of sunglasses from a Palm Harbor store. According to detectives assigned to the burglary/pawn unit, the crime occurred between 3:50 and 4 p.m. July 29 at East Lake Eye Care located at 3434 East Lake Road, #3 in Palm Harbor. A suspect was seen viewing sunglasses at the store. When he left, an employee noticed sunglasses missing from open racks. Surveillance photos show the man removing various types of sunglasses from the racks and putting them in his jacket pockets. The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s, approximately 6 feet tall, heavy build with black, straight, collar length hair and a mustache. The suspect was last seen wearing a medium blue polyester Jessica Frehe Daren Nailos Photo courtesy of PCSOThe man in this surveillance photo is wanted for grand theft shoplifting in connection with the July 29 theft of sunglasses from a Palm Harbor eye care store.

She would see a patient present initially with a single complaint, and start on one medication. At times the medicine would create another problem, so a new medicine was ordered, and then another, etc. Cate felt that she needed to choose a different path of healing. A four year Master's Degree Program prepared her for National Boards, and the title Acupuncture Physician. This 3,000 year old medicine is one which recognizes the mind/body connection. The goal of treatment is to restore harmony, which allows energy to flow in a smooth, unobstructed manner, and all systems benefit. Recognizing the wonderful things about Western Medicine, Cate does not encourage patients to disregard, or alter the instructions of their MD, rather to discuss with them their desire to try this complimentary medicine.

A crash report from Florida Highway Patrol indicates that the incident occurred just after 9 p.m., when a 2000 Nissan Sentra collided with a 1995 Nissan pickup truck. The Sentra was east in the driveway access of Winn Dixie Supermarket, 11900 Seminole Blvd., attempting to cross Seminole Boulevard onto 119th Avenue North. The Nissan was traveling northbound on Seminole Boulevard in the middle lane approaching 119th Avenue. The Sentra failed to yield the right of way and the front end of the Nissan crashed into the right side of the Sentra. The driver, John Richard Walsh Dietrich, 23, of Seminole was cited for failure to yield at sidewalk from alley, building, private road or drive. According to an eyewitness report, Seminole Fire Rescue was first on scene and extricated one of the injured, who was trapped inside a vehicle. One of two passengers in the Sentra, Ryan Laprova, 23, of Largo was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Nissan, Helen Marie Roop, 30, was transported to Largo Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Largo Fire Rescue and Pinellas County Sheriffs Office also assisted on scene.Motorcyclist dies in crash on Bay Pines Blvd.SEMINOLE A 20-year-old Ruskin man died from injuries suffered in a crash about 2:49 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, on Bay Pines Boulevard near the entrance to War Veterans Memorial Park in Seminole. According to deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriffs major accident investigation team, According to deputies, Robert Sterner, 67, of Seminole was driving a 2002 Toyota Tundra, pulling a trailer with a pontoon boat westbound on Bay Pines Boulevard. As Sterner was making a left turn into the entrance of the memorial park, Justin Johnson struck the passengers side of the truck with his 2004 Honda motorcycle. Johnson suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported via ambulance a local hospital where he later died. Johnson was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Sterner and four passengers from the Tundra were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Seminole Fire Rescue, Madeira Beach Fire Department, Lealman Fire Rescue, Sunstar Paramedics and PSCO responded the crash. Deputies said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the incident.Trio charged in jail contraband caseCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Aug. 1 that three men had been charged after a fishing expedition led to arrests in connection with introducing contraband into a county detention facility. The incident took place at the central division of the Pinellas County Jail, 14400 49th St. N. According to the sheriffs report, at least two inmates and one civilian concocted a scheme where the inmates would lower a nylon rope from the sixth floor recreation yard of the detention facility to a subject waiting outside on the ground. The subject outside would in turn tie contraband to the rope so the inmates could pull it up through a rain drainage hole on the top floor. Members of the detention investigations unit recently received a tip from other inmates this activity may be occurring. After a failed attempt to bring in contraband Monday, July 29, the detention investigations unit discovered a grocery-sized bag hanging from the fourth floor of the facility. Inside the bag was approximately 29 grams of marijuana (valued at about $1,500 in the jail), tobacco products, lighters and other miscellaneous items. Inmate Mark Matthew Red Keating, 44, of St. Petersburg was charged with introducing contraband into the jail. He is being held without bond on a warrant from Palm Beach in connection with two burglary charges. He is also charged with grand theft and armed robbery in Pinellas County. Inmate Phillip William Henderson, 38, of St. Petersburg also had introducing contraband into a detention facility added to his list of charges that include petit theft, grand theft and retail theft. The man on the outside, Eric Scott Snook, 41, of Pinellas Park also was charged with introducing and possession of contraband into a detention facility. Bond was set at $5,000. Measures have been taken to prevent this activity from occurring in the future, according to a media release from the sheriffs office. A 6-foot chain link fence was erected in the courtyard where Snook tied the contraband to the rope. Other measures to deter this activity are being discussed. As the investigation continues, additional charges and arrests are possible.Search ends for missing fishermanST. PETERSBURG Coast Guard crews suspended a search for a Madeira Beach man Aug. 1, after spending 55 hours looking over more than 2,150 square miles. Gary Ketlehut, 53, was last seen aboard the 42-foot fishing boat, No Bull, 78 miles northwest of Egmont Key, Wednesday, July 31. A distress call came into the St. Petersburg Coast Guard station about 7:15 a.m. July 31, reporting that Ketlehut wasnt aboard the vessel when its crew woke up at 6 a.m. The crew had stopped fishing about midnight. Ketlehut was last seen sleeping at the bow. A MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew and an HC-130 Hercules aircraft crew from Air Station Clearwater were launched. Coast Guard Cutter Hawk, an 87-foot coastal patrol boat homeported in St. Petersburg, was diverted to assist in the search as well. Our goal is for a positive outc ome and we want to bring the missing home, so its always difficult when we have to suspend the search, said Petty Officer 1st Class Josuah Chears-Stevens, a search and rescue coordinator at the sector. Ketlehut was last seen wearing tan shorts with no lifejacket. The incident is under investigation.

Gene Evans, a Stage 4 kidney cancer survivor and senior vice president at Clearwater-based USAmeriBank, created the paddleboarding event to give back to Moffitt and offer support for other cancer survivors. The event, which featured 3-mile and 7-mile paddlers along with a poolside celebration in Treasure Island, attracted $8,300 more in donations this year than in 2012. And since its first year in 2011, the event has raised a total of $69,300. Evans was diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer in May 2009, and since then has recovered from four surgeries including one to remove a tumor on his spine and another to remove one of his kidneys. In Stage 4 kidney cancer, the cancer spreads outside the kidneys to multiple lymph nodes or distant parts of the body, such as the bones, brain, or lungs. Statistical figures show that the five-year survival rate for Stage 4 kidney cancer is only 8 percent. Evans, however, is a four-year survivor and attributes his successful fight against cancer to his positive attitude and active lifestyle. Gene is an amazing role model, not only for those battling cancer but for each and every person who knows him, said Frank Vrionis, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., in a press release. Vrionis is chief of neurosurgery at Moffitt. He removed the tumor from Evans spine. We greatly appreciate all of the support and contributions his event has provided to Moffitt over the years.Belleair Health Center names rehab directorBELLEAIR Belleair Health Care Center recently appointed a new director of rehabilitation.

Ill direct an entire team of interdisciplinary professionals working together to provide cardiac, pulmonary and lymph edema care, Newton said. Most importantly I want to ensure community access to our newly outfitted outpatient clinic. With 12 years of occupational therapy practice in the state of Vermont, Newton now brings rehabilitative management know-how to a facility that specializes in comprehensive rehabilitative outpatient and inpatient services for short or long term care. BRA Day set in OctoberMy Hope Chests second annual Hope Floats on Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day will be Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, August 15, 2013A number of politicians (male and female) have been scalded in recent weeks and years by their alleged sexual activities. Messrs. Weiner, Spitzer and Milner are only three of a crowded list of office-holders who have been damaged after being caught with their knickers down. After witnessing the furor over these sexual adventures, I got to wondering: In todays culture, what other behaviors, traits or beliefs might be equally harmful to a politicians career? I came up with several possibilities, stated below in no special order. GROSS TABLE MANNERS. If I were running for mayor or governor and assaulted a plate of spaghetti the way George Costanza of Seinfeld does, I wouldnt have a chance of being elected. Few things can turn off a potential voter faster than to see a candidate shovel food down his or her piehole and then compound the offense by talking with his mouth full. OBESITY. William Howard Taft, our 27th president, tipped the scales at about 330 pounds. Obviously, his corpulence did not prevent his being elected to high office. But can you name many other really fat political leaders? I cant. Given their druthers, Americans prefer their politicians to be on the lean and good-looking side. New Jersey governor Chris Christie violates that dictum, but hes reported willing to shed significant poundage as he explores the path to the White House. CHEATING AT CHESS. Would you vote for someone who cheats while playing chess with his 12-year-old daughter? I wouldnt. How could you trust such a person? I dont know of anyone like that whos now in politics, but as soon as we get all our hacking, wiretapping and illegal surveillance tools fully in place well be able to smoke out and prosecute such nasty people. FACE LIFTS. Ive run into recent reports that Hillary Clinton has undergone some cosmetic surgery. Shes looking awfully good these days, said one informant. It may be because shes no longer Secretary of State and can get some rest. But my money is on a face lift. Which indicates shell be going for the presidency in 2016, right? If so, would you be biased against her for undergoing some cut-and-paste work? Some folks would, but I believe most voters would not. Cosmetic surgery is so common today its almost not worth noting, except when the procedure is botched and the patient (whether male or female) ends up looking like a squint-eyed, frozen-smile kewpie doll. In such cases, pity not criticism is usually in order. HYPER-FLATULENCE. Can you imagine a candidate winning a major election if he or she repeatedly broke wind, without meaning to, while making a speech or shaking hands with a crowd? Ive never heard of that occurring with a candidate, although I have met a number of ordinary citizens thus afflicted. Would that handicap discourage voters from supporting the candidate? I believe such a delicate question should be widely debated beforehand, just in case a gaseous but otherwise highly qualified public servant one day comes on the scene. GRAMMATICAL IGNORANCE. I hesitate to list this shortcoming as a possible black mark on a politicians score sheet, because so many Americans neither know nor care about the basics of good grammar. Also, a significant number of excellent public servants have shown that their employing such linguistic lapses as between he and I and nearly unique have really not mattered. ATHEISM. There was a time when a stated belief in God, Christ or some other well-established deity was an absolute requirement for anyone seeking an office more lofty than Animal Control. Americans even those who themselves lack any well-defined religious faith have felt more secure with a self-confessed Methodist, Jew, Catholic, or Muslim holding the reins of authority. That day may have passed. Recent surveys have shown that increasing numbers of citizens have no religious affiliation, and dont especially care whether you or I do. I doubt if many candidates in the next few years will blatantly declare themselves as atheists or agnostics, but a number of them will. And many voters will do themselves proud by viewing such a declaration as irrelevant to a candidates overall merit. SPEAKING THE WHOLE TRUTH. Pile all of the above-listed election risks together and they would not total half of the defeat-guaranteed potential as would total honesty. Someone has said that a completely forthright person in high office, such as the presidency, would be a catastrophe for the nation. He/she would be a ticking time bomb, just waiting for the moment to reveal some scandalous or distasteful fact about himself, his deepest beliefs, his enemies, allies, donors and his previously undisclosed track record. Two weeks of such absolute honesty could tear our country apart.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

Drivers SeatBob Driver Snowden savors the taste of libertyAn absolutely true news item: After spending a month confined inside a Moscow airport, former U.S. intelligence contractor and NSA leaker Edward J. Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia. Sweet freedom, at last! I thought Id never get out of that crummy terminal. After a month of gagging on Cinnabon fumes, even this sooty Moscow air smells like daisies. Today I walk the streets a free man, accompanied by my two new best friends, Anatoly and Boris. They do NOT work for the KGB, OK? Theyre professional tour guides who came strongly recommended by President Vladimir Putin. By the way, Vlad (thats what he told me to call him) has been a totally righteous dude about this whole fugitive-spy thing, unlike a certain uncool American president, who keeps trying to have me arrested and prosecuted for espionage. The Russians have generously given me a Wi-Fi chip and free Internet, so I can go online anytime I want and see what the world is saying about me. A recurring theme in many blogs and chat rooms seems to be: What was that kid thinking? First of all, I believe with all my heart that Americans have the right to know about the far-reaching surveillance tactics employed by our government to monitor its own citizens. I also believe Ive restarted an important debate about national security and privacy. Could I have handled this whole thing differently? Sure. In retrospect, theres definitely something to be said for anonymity. But, hey, cut me some slack. Im only 29 and this was my first time leaking classified intelligence data. Ill be the first to admit that my plan wasnt 100 percent seamless. For example, I should have figured out what new place I wanted to live in before I revealed my identity as the leaker. Clearly, I underestimated how difficult it would be to find a country that would welcome me, especially a country as free and open as the United States. I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong, I declared in a video interview. This was weeks after Id left my place in Hawaii and flown to Hong Kong to meet secretly with reporters. The hotel was nice, but after the stories broke I couldnt go out anywhere. How do you like your accommodations, Mr. Snowden? Can we bring you another pitcher of green tea? More noodles, perhaps? I found another place to crash in Hong Kong and gave a new interview revealing that the U.S. National Security Agency had hacked government computers in China. I assumed that in gratitude for receiving this heavy-duty info, the Chinese authorities would let me stay as long as I wanted. Wrong. No problem, Eddie Boy, says some WikiLeaks dude. Well get you into Cuba. Now I was seriously jazzed because Cubas supposed to be a lot like Hawaii sunshine, great beaches, good surf, a chill music scene. First connection (or so I thought) was at the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow. There I scored a ticket to Havana on Aeroflot (which is sort of the Russian version of Jet Blue, minus the TVs in the seatbacks), and Im ready to roll. Load up my iTunes with the Buena Vista Social Club but then?... More bad news. Apparently the Cuban regime wasnt super excited about me moving there. I never really got the whole story. The plane left without me is all I know. So I was stuck in the Moscow airports transit area, feeling not so great about how this whistleblower stuff is playing out. The security guys wouldnt even let me into the main terminal to hit a Starbucks and check out the Sharper Image. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama kept bugging the Kremlin to hand me over. Putin basically flipped him off, which bought me some time to scout other destinations that had fewer ice storms. The Bolivian government has offered me asylum, but Ive been thinking about what happened down there to Butch Cassidy and Sundance. I might take a pass. Venezuela also said I could come down, and maybe thats where Ill end up in a few months. At least its warm there. Ecuador sounds pretty sweet, too. Dont get me wrong; I love the Russian people. Anatoly always insists on carrying my laptop for me, and Boris gave me a cell phone with unlimited minutes. The coverage here is so amazing that somebody usually answers even before I finish dialing!Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Carl HiaasenThe definition of a republicE d i t o r : What is our Republic? Perhaps you have asked this question yourself recently. There seems to be good reason for any confusions and uncertainty. Many different forms of government have called themselves a republic. For instance, there was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the current Peoples Republic of China. Both of these governments were formed out of communist revolution. Both are quite different from each other and neither stands up to the definition of a republic. And then there is the United States of America, a republic by definition. It too was formed out of the ashes of a revolution. What makes our republic different from others? The basic description of republic found in dictionaries is that the power of a country is held by the people and their chosen representatives. But these definitions omit an important part that defines the uniqueness of our republic that the people gain control of their own lives and fortunes. The government of our republic serves the interests of the people the people do not serve the governments interests. This is an important distinction. This is the dream and ideal arrangement for men who wish to be free. The basic mission statement of any republic includes transferring political power from an oppressive government (such as a dictator, emperor or monarch) to the people. This is the purpose which fires up the society to stand against an oppressive and often powerful government. However, there are differences in the actual formation of all these republics. The United States republic was unique, because its founders were unique men. Where communist leaders rose to be masters of their populations, our founding fathers refused to take on that role. They served as elected leaders and then stepped down to live free lives amongst the rest of us, leaving society to select its leaders and representatives. Instead of grabbing and holding the powers gained by the Declaration of Independence and the revolution, they forged two vessels in which the powers of the people were enshrined and locked away from tyrannical hands. Nestled within these vessels were the power and future freedom of the people of the United States. These two vessels are the Constitution and Bill of Rights, both based on ideals envisioned in the Declaration of Independence. It is ironic that these documents sit in Washington, D.C., so they can be viewed by those who visit them, and yet have no home in our schools and education system. Instead, today our schools teach communist doctrine. The only vaults that guarantee the safety of the contents of these vessels and their continued use are the minds and hearts of each American and our future generations. If you have a desire to understand what our republic consists of, you should not need to ask another person. The answers you seek lay in these three documents. Just because you did not learn about them in school is no reason to remain ignorant of them. By using various dictionaries and references on the Internet you can read and understand them. If you have trouble with reading the originals, modern versions exist which make them easier to understand. Read these if you must, but never rely on any single interpretation and always go back to the original documents. Mass ignorance of these documents is why we are losing what was fought for and created for how can we continue to create something we no longer understand? So, Ill answer the question now what is our republic? It is the concepts laid down in these three priceless documents. Lose them, fail to understand them, fail to educate every generation on them and we lose the republic so bravely fought for so caringly and intelligently forged to guarantee freedom and equality under the law for all men. That so many people are now asking the question, gives hope that we may someday actually achieve our republic. That we were never taught these documents in school and now have to ask the question is frightening. D a v i d R Y o u n g ClearwaterMedian landscaping unimaginativeE d i t o r : Failed attempts to beautify the road medians on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard have raised a lot of eyebrows around Clearwater. The recently relandscaped medians look even worse than the old ones did but, more to the point, why did they need to be replaced? And who do we need to thank for such a dismal and unimaginative piece of work and waste of money? The city of Clearwater could learn something from Largos road medians landscaping on East Bay Drive. For one thing, they do not use any drab, dull or messy bark mulch, instead they use flowering yellow ground cover. They also make good use of low maintenance blue liriope and other colorful shrubs such as Cuban gold duranta, plumbago and firecracker plants. The difference is very striking and obvious; it shows how well chosen plants and creatively landscaped medians can make a difference. The Clearwater Beach Causeway is another fine example of good landscaping. A trip to Sunken Gardens would have been more enlightening. M i c h a e l M a r i b o n a ClearwaterWalsingham Park: a wastelandE d i t o r : Thanks to the current county commissioners, all the monies spent on Walsingham Park has turned into an unused, bug-infested wasteland of dead foliage everywhere and infested with exotic vines killing not only roadside foliage but trail paths that are impassable at times. After personally burning up two expensive trolling motors in trying to negotiate just the upper portion of the lake, I have not put my boat in the water but once this year. There have been times when people could not put a boat in the water due to clogged up ramps. So much for the millions of dollars spent to build a park that nobody uses. Now the fishing museum is being forced to vacate its premises, which is a valuable tool for locals, visitors and especially the young people to learn valuable lessons on what Florida has to offer them. Apparently, these things are no longer important enough for our leaders. If you are not going to repair an empty property, tear it down. If you are not going to care for a park that costs millions to complete, close it up and prepare to pack your bags. My last inquiry into the conditions at the lake and park in general resulted in the same old excuses: budget cuts and lots of personnel. Apparently, the people that still have jobs are not interested in the conditions. How about this? Pool all the resources and personnel from all the parks and send them to a different park, the worst first, for several days to do cleanup, mowing, cutting out area foliage, removing exotics and cleaning up pathways and trails. If they cant do the job, get rid of them and hire people who are willing to work. Also, ask for volunteers. This was done years ago on Lake Seminole by the local fishing club and was a big success until people looking for political gains got involved. I would also be interested in learning if our commissioners as a whole have ever walked, biked or driven through our parks in the last couple of years?

Hard-bottom areas within a mile of shore are holding good numbers of fish. Try Sand Key, Blinds Pass and the Redingtons. They should all be holding Spanish mackerel as well as the occasional cobia. Also, the artificial reefs from three to 10 miles out are also good places to target. On a recent snapper trip to one of the near-shore reefs we had the snapper and the mackerel chummed up behind the boat. Although only a few baits made it past the mackerel to the snapper, it was still really good fishing. Upon returning from our trip offshore we decided to try for some trout along a deep grass flat just inside the pass. The tide was moving in quickly and packs of terns were dipping on schools of small fry bait. It definitely looked promising. After tossing out a couple of handfuls of frisky chummers, it didnt take long for the water to begin to boil. There were trout anywhere from 12 inches up to 18 inches, popping all around the boat. As we caught trout after trout all the while continuing to chum to keep the bites coming, we managed to lure in a school of Spanish mackerel, ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches, and they definitely were the best mackerel of the day. Catching bait has been good lately; small pilchards have been staged up right inside the swash channel all along the beach. These baits are anywhere from an inch and a half up to 2 1/2 inches long so I would definitely recommend a quarter inch mesh cast net. It also is a good idea to lighten up your hook so that your bait swims naturally. A size 1 gold Aberdeen hook has been working great with the small baits and the slightly longer shank than a traditional live bait hook will help to prevent cut-offs from the Spanish mackerel.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerAccording to the 2012 Alzheimer Disease Facts and Figures, one out of eight older Americans has Alzheimers, therefore it is likely you have a loved one or close friend touched by this disease. The more you learn to better understand this disease will help in how you communicate with your loved ones. As tempting as it might be to say, "Mom/Dad, you just said that," this is not helpful. If his/her statement seems to beg for a response, just say, "Oh, OK, Mom/Dad," or "Thanks for telling me," in a positive way, and move onto something else. When you remind him/her they are repeating themselves, what you're really doing is lowering their self-esteem. It is best not to make a person with Alzheimer's disease feel impaired or ashamed. Try to respond in a positive manner, directing conversation to focus on a memory topic they are still familiar with, thereby supporting their self worth.Caring for a person with dementia is stressful. Seeking the help of support groups, and finding a responsible caregiver who can give you a break when needed is important. It is one thing to finally realize someone close to you has Alzheimers. Its a completely different thing to accept that fact. Comfort Keepers provides our caregivers with extensive, hands-on training, which includes preparing them to care for persons with Alzheimers disease and dementia. Comfort Keepers in-home care services are available in all of Pinellas County. Loved ones who need special Alzheimers care can benefit from Comfort Keepers services because the caregivers are specially trained to address the needs of people from early on-set to late stages of dementia and Alzheimers. The unique Interactive Caregiving system Comfort Keepers integrates, allows each caregiver to develop a real and personal relationship with each senior. Its meaningful, honest and helps to develop trust, companionship and a feeling of safety between the caregiver and the elderly loved one.Consider Comfort Keepers Alzheimers care services for any loved ones or friends who are in need of extra care around the home, visits in assisted living or to provide respite care relief, knowing they are being cared for by people who truly care.081513Alzheimer Disease Facts Don and Maxine Bitting celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 21, 2013.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays, in partnership with WDAE 620 AM/95.3 FM, have announced 1,000 lower level seats at Tropicana Field will be available online through raysbaseball.com for $9.53 for every remaining home game this season. In addition, the Tampa Bay Times will offer buy two, get two free outfield seats for all remaining Tuesday home games. This offer is available online through raysbaseball.com via coupons that will be appearing regularly in the Times. For the remainder of the regular season, fans that buy four or more tickets to a Rays home game through raysbaseball.com will receive 10 percent off face value. All of us at the Rays have been excited by the way the team has performed and the way our fans have responded, said Rays President Matt Silverman. This second half push is designed to get all Rays fans out to the ballpark for One More Game. Were grateful to our partners WDAE and the Tampa Bay Times for helping bring all this together. In their weekend series at Tropicana Field against the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, the Rays averaged 28,700 fans for the three games, their best attended three-game home series since April 6-8, 2012. The Rays twice drew 30,000 against the Giants, running their record to 48-16 when playing in front of regular season home crowds of 30,000 or more since 2008. It does make a difference for us, said Rays Manager Joe Maddon after the Giants series. I think weve entertained them very well the last couple of games and actually the entire season, especially at home. Its great to see them out there. Keep on coming.

Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels epic drama tells the story of fictional White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who serves during seven presidential administrations between 1957 and 1986. The film is inspired by Wil Haygoods 2008 Washington Post article A Butler Well Served by This Election which chronicled the real life of former White House butler Eugene Allen. The film begins in 1926 and follows a young Cecil as he escapes the tyranny of the fiercely segregated South in search of a better life.

But Cecils commitment to his First Family fosters tensions at home, alienating Gloria and creating conflict with his anti-establishment son (David Oyelowo).

Kick Ass 2Genre: Action and comedy Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chlo Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey Director: Jeff Wadlow Rated: R Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass (Aaron TaylorJohnson) do-it-yourself vigilante bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) reborn as a supervillain only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young masked hero Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do with their shared calling, Dave decides to start the worlds first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, shes forced to retire leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a bornagain ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, a new self-proclaimed super-villain assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But theres only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.ParanoiaGenre: Thriller Cast: Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss Director: Robert Luketic Rated: PG-13 The high stakes thriller Paranoia goes deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception. The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other. A young superstar, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth), seduced by unlimited wealth and power, falls between them and becomes trapped in their twisting, turning, life-anddeath game of corporate espionage. By the time Adam realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The Patience StoneGenre: Drama Cast: Golshifteh Farahani, Hamidrez Javdan, Hassina Burgan and Massi Mrowat Director: Atiq Rahimi Rated: R In a country torn apart by war, Afghanistan or elsewhere, a young woman in her 30s watches over her older husband in a decrepit room. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. He has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and even by his own brothers. One day, the womans vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her childhood, her suffering, her frustrations, her loneliness, her dreams, desires, and secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before, even though they have been married for 10 years. Her husband has unconsciously become syngu sabour (the patience stone) a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The womans confessions are extraordinary and without restraint: about sex and love, her anger against a man who never understood her, who mistreated her, who never showed her any respect or kindness. Through the words she delivers so audaciously to her husband, the woman seeks to free herself from suffering. But after weeks of looking after him, she begins to act, discovering herself in the relationship she starts with a young soldier. The legend of the patience stone also says that when it has absorbed all that it can handle, it explodes, causing the world to end. But, for one brave Afghan woman, it is a risk shes willing to take to unburden herself and be free. The Patience Stone is adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi, director and co-writer, with Jean-Claude Carrire, of the film adaptation. The novel The Patience Stone has been translated in 33 languages and was winner of the 2008 Goncourt Prize, the most prestigious book award in France.Aint Them Bodies SaintsGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Keith Carradine, Nate Parker, Rami Malek, Kennadie Smith, Jacklynn Smith, Robert Longstreet, Charles Baker, Augustine Frizzell, Kentucker Audley and David Zellner Director: David Lowery Not rated Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck, Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, Aint Them Bodies Saints is a story of love, motherhood and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.AustenlandGenre: Comedy Cast: Keri Russell, J.J. Feild, Bret McKenzie, James Callis, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Seymour and Rupert Vansittart Director: Jershua Hess Rated: PG-13 Austenland is a romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell), a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with all things Jane Austen. But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austencrazed women, Janes fantasies of meeting the perfect Regencyera gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Based on the novel by Shannon Hale (who also co-wrote the script), the film was written and directed by Jerusha Hess and produced by Stephenie Meyers Fickle Fish Films.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Elysium bucks the trend of cookie-cutter summer blockbusters by constructing a narrative around real-world political issues. The film is director Neill Blomkamps second, following 2009s surprise hit, District 9, an action sci-fi film that revolved around themes of xenophobia and social segregation and served as an allegory for race relations in South Africa. With Elysium, Blomkamps social consciousness is again at work, this time crafting a science fiction thriller around a story about the haves vs. the have-nots the 99 percent against the 1 percent, in more contemporary terms. Set in the year 2154, Blomkamp paints a dystopian future in which only two recognizable classes endure. Most everyone lives in squalor in the global shantytown that is Earth. A handful of uber-wealthy aristocrats have escaped the post-industrial decay on the planet and inhabit the seemingly immaculate, exclusive orbital colony, Elysium. Blomkamp gives the audience plenty of visual prompts to distinguish how very different these two extremes truly are. The rich have gone to a great, gated community in the sky: They dwell in comfort, breathe clean air, host poolside parties in a park-like setting and live in mansions equipped with medical devices that look like tanning beds and heal everything from minor boo-boos to cancer. Down below, Earth is looking pretty bleak. Everything that could collapse probably has, from the economy to the ecosystem. Cities are in ruins. There is rampant overpopulation, poverty, crime everywhere the viewer looks, Blomkamps future Los Angeles is filthy, overcrowded and inhospitable. Oppressive police in the form of robots hassle the masses, and one gets the impression that all are assumed guilty of something until proven otherwise. In this vision, the American Dream has been displaced by a daily struggle for survival. Enter Max Da Costa, played by Matt Damon. Max is a former criminal trying to walk the straight and narrow path. An accident on the assembly line where he works exposes him to a lethal dose of radiation and sets him on track to try to reach Elysium. After all, a minute in one of those nifty panacea machines would make him good as new. Maxs tale serves as the vehicle for the action in Elysium, but there is far more going on in Blomkamps film. The director contrasts the crimes of the destitute and deprived against the ruthlessness of the ascendant class. The privileged residents of Elysium obviously dont care for ships full of immigrants crashlanding in their beautifully landscaped gardens and the space habitats Secretary of Defense Delacourt, played by Jodie Foster, takes homeland security quite seriously. Casting Damon and Foster in leading roles could have been a misstep. A-listers generally impede suspension of disbelief in these kinds of films, particularly when someone less recognizable might give just as compelling a performance. For instance, when Damon is engaged in a brutal fight scene, it immediately calls to mind his role as Jason Bourne. Still, Damon aided by a bunch of temporary tattoos manages to make Max credible and authentic. Sad to say, but the degree to which a viewer finds Damons Max sympathetic may depend largely upon that viewers own socioeconomic status. Damon sells it effectively enough its up to each individual audience member to buy it, or not. Foster is less effective in her fascist persona. The actress employs a peculiar British/European accent, possibly to cast her as an Aryan princess type, which proves to be a distraction. One thing she does get right is that unsettling air of self-righteousness: Delacourt, even when she is spouting the most malevolent and immoral viewpoints, always looks as though she believes what she is saying is ethically sound. Meanwhile, Delacourts go-to henchman, a psychotic mercenary named Kruger, is much easier to read: This is one bad dude. He is the big stick totalitarians use to beat the masses into submission. Kruger is portrayed by Sharlto Copley. Copley, who played the mild-mannered dupe Wikus van de Merwe in District 9, does an excellent job bringing this character to its full potential. Copleys performance as Kruger is nearly as chilling as Heath Ledgers Joker. Other notable cast members include Alice Braga as Frey Santiago, Wagner Moura as Spider, William Fichtner as John Carlyle and Jose Pablo Cantillo as Sandro. Emma Tremblay, who plays Freys young daughter Matilda Santiago, gets few lines but scores one of the films most memorable moments. Blomkamp is manipulating his audience a bit with this story twist involving the girl, but it doesnt cheapen the argument. There are lapses of logic in the plot. There are omissions that could have been avoided with careful revision. Blomkamp may have sacrificed better character development in some instances to make time for more of the prerequisite action sequences Hollywood deems necessary to pack theaters. The ratio of brain to brawn may not be ideal but Elysium is easily the most intelligent, socially relevant entry into this summers blockbuster pageant. Elysium isnt nearly as perfect as District 9, but it is far better than anticipated. It boasts a fresh story in a summer filled with sequels and retreads and it manages to blend exhilarating action sequences with evocative themes and a solid story. Out of necessity, the film leaves plenty of unanswered questions. Blomkamp cant possibly resolve all of the problems facing this future dystopia thats not his intent. Elysium is an entertaining sci-fi thriller that features provocative concepts about social stratification and future challenges.Photo by KIMBERLEY FRENCH/COLUMBIA TRISTAR Sandro (Jose Pablo Cantillo), right, preps Max (Matt Damon) for surgery inside Spiders Lair in TriStar Pictures Elysium.

Documentary photos and artifacts often speak for themselves and do not require discourse with their viewer. Likewise, in a digital age where photographs of the Holocaust are readily available, people can become desensitized to photographs of the Holocaust. Art, on the other hand, requires a dialogue with its viewer, forming a bridge between knowing and understanding the history of the Holocaust. Because of this, the Florida Holocaust Museum has had a long-term commitment to collecting and exhibiting art about the Holocaust and other genocides and human rights abuses. Artworks now on view are just a small sampling of the museums holdings. Viewers can expect to see works by artists such as Samuel Bak, Kathe Kollwitz, Emanuel Romano, Maureen Drdak and more. Works included in the show represent a number of different mediums including mixed media, sculpture, installation, painting and prints.Courage and CompassionCourage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers is a Florida Holocaust Museum original exhibition and is presented nationally by Bank of America. This multi-media exhibition showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,000 Jews during World War II, which was featured in the 2009 major motion picture, Defiance. In 1941, three brothers, Tuvia, Zus and Asael Bielski made the decision to take refuge in forests near Novogrudok, now Belarus, to avoid falling victim to the Nazis as they began their takeover of Poland. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women and children that numbered more than 1,200 by the end of the war.

Head greaser Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their Summer Nights as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as Greased Lightnin, We Go Together, There Are Worse Things I Could Do and Youre the One That I Want recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals place Grease among the worlds most popular musicals. This production will feature James Grenelle as director and choreographer.

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.

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.
