A group of Scouts and adult leaders from Boy Scout Troop 340 recently hiked through New Mexico wilderness. They carried everything they needed to survive during their seven-day trek on their backs while hiking from camp to camp. They participated in backcountry programs along the way, including rock climbing, horseback riding and gold prospecting. The trek included a conservation project where the Scouts learned and participated in the upkeep of Philmonts ecosystem. Along the way, they also endured tough challenges, including backpacking in bear and mountain lion territory, steep climbs, and inclement weather.Trekking through wildernessVIEWPOINTSBob DriverRandom ramblings. P a g e 1 1 A City manager awarded merit raiseSeminole council approves new parade guidelines, library agreement By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE For the first time since 2008, City Manager Frank Edmunds has been awarded a merit-based pay raise. The City Council unanimously approved the 2.5 percent pay increase at its Aug. 13 meeting following its annual City Manager Performance Review at a July 23 workshop. Edmunds base pay bumps up from $4,677.50 to $4,794.44 bi-weekly with the pay increase. Between 2008 and 2011, Edmunds either refused merit increases to support city employees not offered raises because of the economic downturn or was not offered one because of the economy. In 2012 he accepted a one-time 3 percent raise that was put toward his pension. This is well-deserved, said Councilor Jim Quinn. We wish it could be bigger, but hes satisfied with what hes been offered. In other action items, the council: Approved an interlocal agreement with the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative for the coordination of countywide library services. This is a continuation of the agreement that has been in place for 20 years and is set to expire on Sept. 30, Edmunds said. Though the new agreement notes a slight decrease in funding, it changes [only] the governance of the coop, but not the level of services in any way, Edmunds said. Cities will have more direct representation on the coop board and the county gains more administrative powers, he added. The new agreement goes into effect on Oct. 1. Addressed safety concerns of the Bright Before Your Eyes Holiday Night Parade by approving new parade guidelines. The new guidelines, which emphasize public safety, includes requiring all units and parade walkers to be properly illuminated for the nighttime events and the pace of the parade. Safety first and then fun, Mayor Leslie Waters said. Gave preliminary approval of a development agreement with Lake Shore Development LLP and Domain Homes Inc. following the first public hearing on the matter. The agreement calls for the construction of 15 single-family detached homes on 4.8 acres at 8003 Seminole Blvd. A second public hearing is set for Tuesday, Aug. 27. The property is located on the east side of Seminole Boulevard north of Lake Vista Drive. Up until two years ago, the property was part of unincorporated Seminole, but was annexed into the city. Approved the plat of the single-family homes component of the Bay Pines project and authorized Mayor Waters to sign it. Gave permission to Edmunds to execute contracts with the planned performers for the 2013 Music in the Park series at Seminole City Park, 7464 Ridge Road. The six-week concert series begins Friday, Sept. 6 and takes place every Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. Performers include SPAN: An Evening with Sinatra and Friends, Yesterdayze, the Troy Duncan Band, Tommy Roxx & The Big Deal, the Sounds of Soul and Rocketman Show. Its one of our highlights of the entire year, Mayor Waters said. Six Fridays in a row. You cant beat it.

School start times range between 7:35 a.m. and 8:35 a.m. The school day ends between 1:35 and 4 p.m. School crossing guards will be present at 186 school crossing posts, from as early as 6:20 a.m. to as late as 5 p.m. Pinellas County Sheriffs Office advises that students walking or biking to school become familiar with where their crossing guards are located and understand they are able to approach the guards for assistance if needed. Deputies recommend that parents teach children best practices when it comes to crossing the roads. Children should be taught to watch for cars, turn lane traffic and make eye contact with drivers. Children riding their bikes should always wear a helmet. Brad Dykens, public education officer with Seminole Police Department, said early morning hours are the most dangerous for school children with the congestion of workday commuters and limited issues of the early morning/dawn hours. Please be extra vigilant, Dykens said. Clearwater police ask that motorists obey school speed zones and keep an eye out for school buses that have stopped to pick up or drop off students. PCSO deputies remind motorists that vehicles are required to come to a full stop when approaching any school bus displaying a stop signal. Motorists must remain stopped. Vehicles are prohibited from passing the bus until the stop signal has been withdrawn. Deputies will have extra patrols on the streets near school zones to ensure students are safe during their first week back. Drivers are asked to add a few extra minutes to their morning and afternoon commute and to exercise caution. Units from Seminoles Fire Rescue will be setting up outside local elementary and middle schools and will promote safe driving and awareness. Fire Rescue vehicles also will be parked along roadways with emergency lights on and crews will be waving safety message signs. Pinellas County School District is the seventh largest in the state and 26th largest in the nation. Nearly 104,000 students prekindergarten through 12th grade are enrolled, plus another 20,000 attending adult education and technical education classes. The districts headquarters is at 310 Fourth St. SW., Largo. Call 588-6000 or visit www.pcsb.org for more information.

SEMINOLE The City of Seminole Fire Rescue has promoted Firemedic James Meegan to the rank of lieutenant. Meegan began his fire service career in 1981 as a volunteer with the Seminole Volunteer Fire Department and was promoted in 1982 to career firefighter. He has served as engine, squad and truck driver, paramedic, acting lieutenant and peer fitness coordinator, and is a certified fire officer. He was also honored in 1984 as the State of Florida EMT of the Year. After 11 years, Meegan moved to Ohio, where his wifes family is from. In Ohio, he joined the Mentor Fire Department as a firefighter paramedic. Over the next 18 years, he became an Ohio state-certified fire inspector, fire instructor, Hazmat technician, and participated on the technical rescue team, Hazardous Intervention Team, Northeast Ohio Urban Search and Rescue Team, and served as a paramedic instructor for the Fire Academy. Meegan served 12 years as a lieutenant, including five years as an acting battalion chief. After 18 years in Ohio, Meegan and his family returned to the Seminole community. In the short three years since his return, he has recertified as an engine driver and acting lieutenant, where he developed and implemented a new squad-training manual, and became part of the executive board for the Seminole Professional Firefighters Association.Photo by BRAD DYKENSFiremedic James Meegan of Seminole Fire Rescue was recently promoted to lieutenant.SEMINOLESoccer registration underwayRegistration for the Seminole Youth Athletic Associations upcoming soccer season will take place at the SYAA Sport Complex, 12100 90th Ave. Registration is set for Wednesdays, Aug. 21 and 28, and Sept. 11 and 18, 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays, Aug. 24 and Sept. 7, 11 to 12:30 p.m.. .

4A County Seminole Beacon, August 22, 2013 Here and There Here and ThereStudents can eat for free at 58 Pinellas County schools By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLSEMINOLE School is back in session, and now students at 58 Pinellas County schools can eat lunch for free no matter what income-level their families are in. Pinellas County Schools has been chosen for a federal pilot program called the Community Eligibility Option where schools that have at least 40 percent of low-income families qualify for free lunch for the entire student body. Its designed by the USDA in Washington (D.C.,) said Art Dunham, director of food services for Pinellas County Schools. Its in test mode at the moment and is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, and Florida just got permission to be part of the pilot. And the folks in Tallahassee asked different districts if they would like to partake in it, and I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to provide meals to students easily. Even students at schools other than the 58 chosen for the pilot program can benefit because a new district initiative beginning this year will allow the students at these schools who qualify for reduced-price lunches to receive lunch for free. However, families of these students will still have to submit applications for free/reduced priced lunches, whereas there is no longer any required paperwork at the 58 CEO schools. (The program) focuses on communities that are hard-hit economically, Dunham said. They evaluate the students in each school, and they cross-check the services that are provided by the state to these families such as food stamps, welfare benefits, insurance benefits, Clothes to Kids benefits, Medicaid benefits. Anything that a social service program would be providing to families, and when those benefits are tallied and the community as a whole has 40 percent of the student body receiving these benefits, the state is deeming that its a community thats eligible for free lunch. One of the many great things about this program, Dunham said, is that it takes away the perceived stigma that many kids felt by receiving a free or reduced-price lunch. Now, everyone in those schools are on the same level and all they have to do is eat. That should increase the number of kids fed, Dunham said. Some of the students who in the past qualified for these benefits wouldnt come to us because they didnt want to be identified in any way by their peers that they were needy. This takes that stigma away from that. So if the parent is making $100,000 and can afford lunch and (his or her kids) happen to go to this particular school, the child gets free lunch. Theres no more reduced-price meal and theres no more paid lunch. In reality, there was no way for kids to tell who ate lunch for free and whose parents paid for it, but there was a perception that it was geared toward the free students, Dunham said, which reduced participation. The school benefits from the new program, too, Dunham said, because there is no more paperwork to fill out by the parents and for staff to deal with at the beginning of the schoolwork regarding lunch. Furthermore, each school will submit to the federal government the percentages from last year of how many students received free lunch, how many had the reduced-price plan and how many had paid lunch, and the government will reimburse the school for each category. According to the Food Research and Action Center, this program allows for a healthier student body and a healthier school meal budget. Last school year, Pinellas County started offering free breakfast to all students, said Melanie Marquez Parra, public information officer for PCS. Now, kids at the 58 schools with the Community Eligibility Option have the opportunity to eat two free meals a day at school. Its another opportunity to make sure as many students as possible have complete, nutritious meals so they can be successful in school, Marquez Parra said. Dunham added that the free breakfast program was quite successful in many ways. We had free breakfast for everyone, and weve seen many, many students enjoying having breakfast together who might never have talked to each other before this, Dunham said. Last year, Pinellas County Schools fed 69,000 students each day for lunch out of a total student body of 105,000, and this year Dunham hopes to feed an additional 17,000 students daily. Proper nutrition is crucial for learning, he said. Its incredibly important, Dunham said. Students cant learn when theyre hungry. There are tests all over the nation that show that a student who is well-fed is happier. If he or she is happier, they tend to learn better and FCAT grades go way up. Having healthier students will benefit the community as a whole, he said, because students will get better grades, will be able to get into better colleges, lead productive lives giving back to the community and also be free of some diet-related diseases. Also, with more kids eating school-provided lunches, they will often be eating healthier food than they otherwise would have. Were trying to provide the students with more fruits and vegetables and whole grain items with reduced or limited sugars, Dunham said. Fats and sugars contribute immensely to obesity and heart disease The following schools will offer free lunch to all students in 2013-14 Azalea Middle Bardmoor Elementary Bay Point Middle Bayside High Bear Creek Elementary Belcher Elementary Belleair Elementary Blanton Elementary Boca Ciega High Calvin Hunsinger Campbell Park Elementary Clearwater Intermediate Cross Bayou Elementary Dixie Hollins High Douglas Jamerson Elementary Dunedin Elementary Eisenhower Elementary Fairmount Park Elementary Frontier Elementary Fuguitt Elementary Gibbs High Gulfport Elementary High Point Elementary John Hopkins Middle Lakewood Elementary Largo Middle Lealman Avenue Elementary Lealman Intermediate Lynch Elementary Maximo Elementary Meadowlawn Middle Melrose Elementary Mildred Helms Elementary Mt.

Sanders Exceptional Ridgecrest Elementary Sandy Lane Elementary Seventy-Fourth Street Elementary Sexton Elementary Skycrest Elementary Skyview Elementary Southern Oak Elementary Starkey Elementary Tarpon Springs Elementary Tyrone Middle Walsingham Elementary Westgate Elementary Woodlawn Elementaryand diabetes. And our menus contain no added sugars only natural sugars, and were using whole grain products, so we should be able to reduce some of the obesity thats been a problem in America and have healthier students.Experts still expect busy hurricane season this year By SUZETTE PORTERHistorically, the busiest time of the Atlantic Hurricane season begins in mid-August and continues through October. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration updated its season outlook Aug. 8. The experts said, The season is shaping up to be above normal with the possibility it could be very active. The updated outlook calls for a 70 percent chance of an above-normal season. Our confidence for an above-normal season is still high because the predicted atmospheric and oceanic conditions that are favorable for storm development have materialized, Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service, said in a press release. Also, two of the four named storms to-date formed in the deep tropical Atlantic, which historically is an indicator of an active season. NOAAs updated outlook, which includes tropical storms Andrea, Barry, Chantal and Dorian, predicts a 70 percent chance that 13 to 19 named storms will form in 2013 with six to nine strengthening into a hurricane and three to five becoming a major hurricane, Category 3 or higher. NOAAs forecast is slightly lower than the outlook issued in May, which predicted 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes. However, the numbers are greater than the historical average of 12 named storms in a season with six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. Philip J. Klotzbach and William M. Gray, hurricane experts from Colorado State University, also predict that the remainder of the 2013 season will have above-average activity. Hurricane season starts June 1 and continues through Nov. 30. Klotzbach and Grays updated forecast issued Aug. 2 calls for 18 named storms, eight hurricanes and three major hurricanes. Their forecast also gives odds of 63 percent that a hurricane will affect the state of Florida and a 28 percent chance of a major hurricane doing the same. NOAAs experts said that current conditions are similar to those that have produced more active seasons since 1995. Those conditions include above-average Atlantic sea surface temperatures and wind patterns conducive for tropical storms and hurricanes. The likelihood that La Nina will develop, which reducing wind shear, is one reason the experts changed the numbers slightly for the remainder of the season. While most believe the same number of named storms will form, the intensity of those storms has been downgraded slightly. NOAA said other factors that influenced the forecast include the lack of hurricanes through July, more variability in the wind patterns across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and slightly lower hurricane season model predictions. The peak of the hurricane season is almost upon us and its important to remain prepared for hurricanes through November, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Make sure to review your family emergency plan, check that your emergency kit is stocked and consider insurance options. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricanes at www.ready.gov/hurricanes. Pinellas County Emergency Management also reminds residents about the increased threat of tropical weather, beginning this month. Hurricanes Andrew, Charley and Katrina were all devastating storms that made landfall in Florida in August. County residents are urged to complete hurricane preparations now. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/emergency or www.tbnweekly.com/special_section/hurricane_guide. Heritage Village tree thinning project canceledLARGO The pine tree management project scheduled for two weeks at Heritage Village was canceled due to inclement weather. The historical hands-on museum will reopen as usual on Wednesday, Aug. 21. The project is expected to resume in the spring. The project was undertaken as part of a conservation effort to protect a majority of the trees, as well as the safety of visitors and the historical structures. The frequent rains, however, have made the ground too wet and the project was postponed. Heritage Village is located at 11909 125th St. N. in Largo. Heritage Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. It is closed Mondays, Tuesdays and all Pinellas County holidays.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority reports that Julys ridership was up 6 percent over June and was the second highest July on record with more than 1.2 million boarding PSTA buses last month. The 1,203,964 rides were only slightly lower than July 2012 with 1,208,915, but still a 6 percent jump over June 2013. PSTA officials say such strong ridership during what has traditionally been considered an off month is proof of the growing demand for better transit in the Tampa Bay area.

This is an exciting opportunity for the community as it will make buying GO Cards easier than ever, said PSTA Board Chair and St. Petersburg City Councilman, Jeff Danner. PSTA ridership is at an all-time record high and this new partnership will make it much easier to meet the growing demand for GO Card outlets. Danner joined officials from CVS/Pharmacy Aug. 5 at the store on Fourth Street and Ninth Avenue North in St. Petersburg to celebrate the new partnership. On hand were CVS/Pharmacy District Sales Manager Brian Bache, Store Manager Scott Greer and Assistant Manager Joe Sferrazza.

In my experience, the real jewel of professional theater is being able to both entertain and rediscover that human connection. Its amazing, that complete strangers will laugh at the same jokes and applaud at the same time.The people behind New StageJackson, originally from Tampa, graduated from Blake High School for the Performing Arts in 2007. He began acting locally and regionally, taking his first professional role as Rick in a production of Six Degrees of Separation. At age 18, he became the first performer to write, act, and direct in the Young Dramatist Program in its 12-year history. Jackson was cast in the lead role of Film Ranch Internationals first feature film Brain Jacked, and scored several commercials as well as the recurring role of Donovan on MTVs The Inbetweeners. Burns, a cofounder of New Stage Theatre, is the music director at Country Day School and serves as educational director of New Stage Conservatory. Burns graduated from New York Citys American Musical and Dramatic Academy in 2001. She made her professional acting debut as Maureen in the national tour of the Broadway musical Rent and went on to star in many shows. Her choreography also has been seen in Rocky Horror Picture Show, Godspell and Respect. As a lyricist, she has penned songs for A Big Apple Christmas, Waist Watchers and Holiday Party of One. Danielson is the third member of this creative triumvirate. A native of River Falls, Wis. Described as an entrepreneur and a theater enthusiast, he relocated to the Tampa Bay area in 1993 and has lived in the Largo area since then. Danielson serves as the director of admissions at Country Day School and as producing director at New Stage Theatre.The inaugural seasonNew Stage Theatre will present five productions in its inaugural season. Following Maybe Baby, Its You, the 2013-14 season will continue with the following shows: Little Shop of Horrors, by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken; Oct. 10 through Nov. 3. Holiday Party of One, by Alison Burns with musical arrangements by Stan Collins; Dec. 5-20. Title of Show, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and book by Hunter Bell; Feb. 6-23. The Rainmaker, by N. Richard Nash; April 3-27. New Stage Theatre offers theatergoers more than just a new venue: It provides an opportunity to see professional productions in an intimate setting. While the Tampa Bay area is already to home to several exceptional professional theaters, there is room for one more and Jackson believes Largo, at the heart of Pinellas, is the perfect spot. We chose Largo to be our home base, because the area was lacking what we offer as a theater and conservatory, Jackson said. Jackson is confident the county can support another professional theater. On a grand scale, I feel Pinellas County is growing a theater community and our audiences show that, Jackson said. From the breathtaking productions of freeFall Theatre and American Stage, St. Petersburg hosts something very special. Now our community has a new theater company to feel proud of. For information about New Stage Theatre and Conservatory, call 813817-2585, email nstc@newstagelargo.org or visit newstagelargo.org. By LEE CLARK ZUMPELARGO Theres a new professional theater in Pinellas, and it has found a home at Country Day World School in Largo. New Stage Theatre and Conservatory was the brainchild of Chris Jackson and cofounders Alison Burns and Bruce Danielson. The theater was officially established last year when it joined forces with Country Day School. A fully functioning black box theater space was built, its doors opening last March just in time to host a series of summer camp programs. According to Jackson, New Stage Theatre and Conservatory came about fortuitously as analogous objectives merged. After being hired as Country Day World Schools performing arts director, I helped design the black box theater in the new campus the school was building for their middle school program, said Jackson. After seeing the success of the schools performing arts program, I presented Bruce Danielson with a program Alison and I were developing for the Largo area. It eventually became New Stage Theatre and Conservatory. The relationship between the two entities the theater and the school is mutually beneficial. Jackson explained New Stage Theatre is in residence at Country Day World School. They have provided the theatre with a luxurious space to perform professional theater, Jackson said. The partnership between these two entities certainly provides opportunities for Country Day students to explore performing arts in classes that are much more personalized than their regular curriculum. That said, the professional productions planned by New Stage Theatre are just that: professional. As far as participating in the professional shows, there isnt much room for pre-professional students, Jackson explained. For our productions we strive to hire union actors and designers so there is higher standard. The community also has had a hand in helping New Stage Theatre a reality. The community thus far has been extremely kind to us, said Jackson. There has been a great outreach via our website asking for volunteer opportunities, a really great way to get involved. We have even had a few sponsorship offers from local businesses. Professional theater is so healthy for this community both culturally and economically and I think that is recognized already in these early stages. The theater is currently prepping for its first full season of main stage productions. Kicking off the theaters inaugural season will be Maybe Baby, Its You, by Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson. The production will run through Sept. 1, at New Stage Theatre, inside Country Day World School, 11650 131st St. N., Largo. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 3 p.m. Tickets are $25. Call 813-817-2585 or visit newstagelargo.org. Maybe Baby, Its You boasts a comedic night about the search for that most elusive of entities, the soul mate. Jackson and Burns star in the show. The production covers ground from the first kiss to the not-sogolden age of marriage. The show promises to be a heart-felt night mixed with high energy as these two actors transform into 26 characters throughout the evening. Jackson explained that for this first season, New Stage Theatre selected plays the audience will have fun with. Our goal is for our patrons to relate to the material, to enjoy their experience, Jackson said. We have chosen very difficult shows for our professional actors and designers, which is great. Artists love a challenge. The plays we have selected are award winning, critically recognized pieces. New Stage Theatre and Conservatorys stated mission is to strengthen our communities, our artists and our youths minds by producing high caliber theatre and offering affordable pre-professional performance training for all. Jackson echoes that objective in describing the importance of theater in the community and what he, as artistic director, uses to measure the theaters success. Box office sales are great, it keeps the theater healthy, he said. However, that should never be the goal of an artistic director. Professional theater offers something special to a community, on an economic level, a cultural level, and a spiritual level. As the first real form of story telling, theater has evolved and transformed as much the people who create and view it. Success of a theater is reflected in the experience its audience has. If the audience doesnt feel fully satisfied, we are missing something. If the audience hasnt experienced professional theater, than we have a mission to get them in the theater. Jackson observed that as technology increasingly serves as societys primary source of entertainment, live theater is perhaps more valuable than ever before. In a technological world, where our children our digital natives andChris Jackson and Alison Burns star in Maybe Baby, Its You, which kicks off the inaugural season for New Stage Theatre and Conservatory through Sept. 1. The production will be performed at Country Day World School, 11650 131st St. N., Largo. Photo courtesy of AUBREY DANIELSON Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Commission divided on sale of land to Pasco County By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County has many good traits that appeal to residents and visitors alike, but it does not have a plentiful source of drinking water. Never has. Compared to more inland areas of the state, the small coastal peninsula wedged between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay has limitations on quantity and quality of its drinking water supply. Due to its geography, the county is dependent on outside sources. In 1970, well fields located in Hillsborough and Pasco produced 46.6 percent of Pinellas drinking water and by 1977, the dependency on outside sources had grown to 52.6 percent. So-called water wars were common between Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough counties and even private landowners. Unregulated pumping of groundwater from the Florida Aquifer resulted in the death of cypress trees, loss of wetlands, ponds, lakes and other water bodies dependent on ground water, as local governments struggled to provide adequate supplies of drinking water to support the regions fast-growing population. To help satisfy Pinellas Countys needs, in 1975, the Utilities Department purchased Crossbar Ranch, about 8,000 acres of land in central Pasco County located east of U.S. 41 and north of State Road 52. Seventeen active wellhead sites are located on 6.41 acres of the property. The wells began producing in 1980. Al-Bar Ranch and its 4,100 acres adjoining Crossbar were added to Utilities land portfolio in 1990. The combined 12,400 acres of land is valued not only for its water wells, but it also generated $6.2 million from sale of pine straw and pine timber over the past 10 years. The land is a preserve for a variety of endangered species. Pinellas County Commissioners discussed the possibility of selling the ranches to Pasco County to add to its environmental land holdings during an Aug. 13 work session. Commissioners Janet Long, Norm Roche and Commission Vice-chair Karen Seel are opposed to selling the land at this time. Commission Chair Ken Welch spoke in favor of the sale as did Commissioner Susan Latvala, longtime proponent of selling the land to Pasco. Commissioner John Morroni was absent. Before the discussion, County Administrator Bob LaSala talked about what went on between Pinellas and Pasco counties and the state in 2008. Pinellas County had been poised to sell the property to Florida Forever to help fulfill the state-run programs goals of preserving the sites rare species, protecting, restoring and maintaining the quality of land and water in the state, and increasing the acreage of the groundwater-recharge area. The Crossbar/Al-Bar Ranch has a very high value as a water-recharge area, according to a 2008 report from Forever Florida. The ranches were added to Florida Forevers acquisition list, but the recession and lack of funds put an end to the sale. According to media reports in 2008, Pinellas County wanted to sell the land to pay for a new Utilities plant. The county reasoned that the need for the land and its water resources were no longer needed Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSThis education center built by Pinellas County at a cost of $1.3 million opened Dec. 9, 1993 at Cross Bar Ranch. Currently it is used primarily by Pasco County schoolchildren.thanks to Tampa Bay Water, a nonprofit utility that now supplies wholesale drinking water to Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Pinellas County sold the wells and its water rights on the ranches in the mid-1990s as part of the deal that created Tampa Bay Water, which was established in 1998. Latvala is confident that Tampa Bay Water will supply Pinellas Countys future water needs. She prefers spending the countys available funds on land preserves within Pinellas County not on land in another county. According to a 2012 audit by the Clerk of the Courts Inspector General, over the 12-years prior, the ranches had a net loss of more than $1.9 million. The county also spent more than $1.3 million to build an educational center, which Latvala said is primarily used by Pasco County schoolchildren, and $114,487 for two buses, which officials had planned to use for safari tours of the property. Pinellas County paid $11 million for the ranches. About half the land is used for conservation and preservation of endangered wildlife. The other half contains the well fields, as well as land set aside for timber and pine straw production and cattle operations and other activities. The four homes on the property are used by private contractors who provide land management and security services. Timber harvesting began in 2011 and was expected to bring in about $3.1 million over 10 years of time. Proceeds go to the property owner Pinellas County Utilities. Any revenue after expenses from the pine straw operations also goes to Utilities. Some officials believe the ranches can pay their expenses now that timber harvesting has begun. David Scott, executive director of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said last year, Utilities made $343,000 profit on pine timber alone. Seel said although revenue has been breakeven or no profit in the past, the potential for profit exists for at least the next seven years. In 2012, Pasco County valued the land at $58 million. In 2008, media reports show that the land was assessed at $176 million. Seel doesnt believe selling county property while the market is still depressed is the right thing to do. Seel voted against the sale of other county-owned property in recent years. She would like to wait until closer to 2017 to decide the fate of Cross Bar and Al-Bar. In 2017, a 35-year contract with the property manager expires. Commissioner Norm Roche also is opposed to selling the land. He doesnt think it is a wise idea to count on Tampa Bay Water to take care of Pinellas Countys needs forever. He believes it would be smarter to hang on to the land just in case. The property is our lifeline. Its our water, he said. Its prudent for our future 30 years from now to preserve our option for future generations. LaSala reminded Roche that Pinellas County no longer owns the wells or water rights on the property. He did admit that if something happened and Tampa Bay Water was dissolved, Pinellas County in all likelihood would have first claim to the wells. Thirty years from now that property could be very, very valuable, Seel said. See CROSS BAR, page 7A The Beacon. A tradition in your neighborhood.

That should ease their concern of what we would do with it, if Tampa Bay Water ever went away, to protect our interests, she said. Latvala argued that the state was moving toward creation of regional water supplies, moving away from pumping of ground water in favor of alternative water supplies. There is no justification for keeping the land, she said. She said Pinellas Countys ownership of the ranches is a burr under their saddle, and the hard feelings between the two counties since the water wars had bothered her the whole time shes been in office. Weve spent a lot of money, making a pristine habitat, a scrub jay habitat, Latvala said. Weve done a remarkable job. But our citizens have no use for it. Its too far away. It doesnt serve a purpose for our citizens. Commissioner Janet Long wasnt keen on selling the property. She wanted to know why more people from Pinellas didnt visit the land. She asked why Pinellas County schoolchildren didnt use it the same as Pasco Countys did. Land is one thing in the world we dont have anymore, Long said. She said that due to economic conditions, it did not make good financial sense to sell the land. She wants to look for ways to promote its use. A lot of people today dont know much about it, she said. It would be a mistake to sell it.Richard Gehring, Pasco Countys Planning and GrowthManagement administrator, explained Pascos reasons for wanting to buy the land. It is our intent to add it to the framework of our land management, he said. Money is available from the Penny for Pasco funds, which start in 2015. He said owning the ranches would allow Pasco to form critical linkages for wildlife to move through the system. We want it to stay rural and agricultural, he said, adding that plans involved a trail system and camping. Pasco County is aiming for a 50-50 mix of urban and preservation for 500,000 acres. He said the county was now trying to assemble the land it needed to reach that goal. Commissioner Charlie Justice asked to see a better analysis of costs and revenue potential. He requested information on how money from sale of the land could be spent, CROSS BAR, from page 6A Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSAbove, Cross Bar and Al-Bar ranches are part of the Florida Scrub Jay Management Program. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officially listed the Florida Scrub Jay as a threatened state species in 1975 and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service listed it as a threatened federal species in 1987. Below, the location of Crossbar and Al-Bar ranch in Pasco County is pointed out on a map during an Aug. 13 work session.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERsince the property owner is Utilities not Pinellas County government. Pascos goal is laudable. If the situation was reversed, we would probably seek something similar, he said. Welch also pointed out the home rule issue. If another county owned a chunk of Pinellas, we would be trying to get it, he said, agreeing with others that now might not be the right time to sell. But Im open to continue the discussion, he said. Latvala said Tampa Bay Water paid $140 million for the water rights on the property. The return on our investment is done, she said. Pasco County wants to protect the land from future development and believes owning the property is the only way to stop a future Pinellas County Commission that just sees dollar signs from developing it or selling the land to a developer, she said. The No. 1 issue in the future globally is going to be water, Seel said. Thats why we need to keep this land in an abundance of caution. Seel pointed out that $80 million of the amount had gone to put in new water pipelines to accommodate the type of disinfectant Tampa Bay Water uses. She said nothing prevented Pinellas from collaborating with Pasco to protect home rule using an interlocal agreement or contract. Roche agreed that an agreement giving Pasco first rights to buy the land if Pinellas decided to sell it in the future was a good compromise. He said perhaps Pasco could partner with Pinellas when the land management contracts come up for bid in 2017. Im not opposed to having a conversation with the Pasco County Commission, Long said. Long suggested a field trip to visit Cross Bar and Al-Bar ranches, as well as all the preserves located in Pinellas. She said if Latvala was correct and budget cuts were doing harm to the countys preserves, perhaps budget adjustments were needed. Globally water is becoming our most precious resource, Long said. Water is important, Latvala said. Tampa Bay Water solved that. We dont have to worry about our future. Pinellas County approves Largos land use change By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a request from the city of Largo Aug. 6 that allows reclassification of a 13.8-acre site located on Seminole Boulevard near the intersection of Ulmerton Road to Residential High. The public hearing was a continuation from July 9 when commissioners delayed action to change the existing classification of Residential Estate and Residential Low Medium with Resort Facilities Overlay. Commissioners wanted to make sure remaining residents of Briarwood Recreational Vehicle Park would have an affordable place to go. They asked the city of Largo to work with the property owner to provide additional assistance. Attorney Ed Armstrong, representative for the property ownerDockside Investorswho plan to build a 260-unit apartment complex at the site, said $30,000 had been deposited in a fund to help pay relocation costs. The property owner also contracted for services from Community Services Foundation. At the July 9 meeting, commissioners were told that about 50 adults were still living in the park, several testified about hardships that prevented them from moving. As of July 24, approximately 30 families were still working on relocation plans, according to Tina Harper, Briarwoods property manager. Harper said four families were relocating Aug. 6 and two others planned to move this week. In addition, she said Community Services Foundation had been meeting with residents about two times a week to assist them. The property owner has agreed to pay $1,375 to those who would turn over the title to their RV to the property owner. Others could receive up to $1,200 to help coverPCCTV screen shot by SUZETTE PORTERCarol Stricklin, Community Development director of the city of Largo, updates Pinellas County Commissioners Aug. 6 about efforts to relocate residents from Briarwood Recreational Vehicle Park. moving expenses. Some cant just drive off, she said. All have different needs. Commissioner Norm Roche talked about making sure four residents, who are registered sex offenders, found a place to move and didnt end up on the streets. Roche was assured that efforts were ongoing to help all the remaining residents. Christine Allamanno, a lawyer with Gulfcoast Legal Services, said $30,000 might not be enough to help all the remaining residents, especially those with special needs. She said best estimates showed moving costs of $1,200 to $2,000. She also talked about a rumor that one park was discriminating against residents who were receiving her legal services. Im still concerned about the lack of affordable units set aside in the new development, she said. The property owners agreement with the city of Largo calls for the units to be rented at market rates. Carol Stricklin, Community Development director of the city of Largo, also talked about the relocation efforts by the property owner and the city. In 30 days, weve accomplished a great deal, she said. Stricklin said Largo had one more public hearing to get through the second reading of an ordinance to amend the future land map. The rest of the approvals would be administrative, she said. She said the city would remain involved in the relocation process and would address outstanding concerns. Commission Chair Ken Welch asked what would happen if the $30,000 was not enough to help everyone. Stricklin said information was available about other relocation resources. She said the city would look at additional resources if necessary. The city of Largo asked for this and it is a significant improvement in their minds to the city, Commissioner Charlie Justice said. Its up to them to make sure their residents are taken care of.TBW seeks input through online surveyCLEARWATER Tampa Bay Water is seeking community input on the regions future drinking water supply as it updates its long-term master water plan. The agency is asking residents, businesses and community groups to complete an online survey at www.tampabaywater.org/FutureWater. The survey will be available until Aug. 23. Tampa Bay Water is asking for input on seven future water project concepts, source water protection and regional water efficiency efforts. Community participation is a critical element to everything we do at Tampa Bay Water, said Ivana Blankenship, planning and outreach program manager for Tampa Bay Water. More than 2.3 million people in the region receive our drinking water through our member governments. It is important for those residents to have a say in the planning process. Updated every five years, this 20-year plan takes into account more than what the agency can build. The long-term master water plan is a holistic approach to understanding the capabilities of its current system, helping its members with water efficiency programs, adhering to regulatory requirements for water quality and protecting regional drinking water sources. The long-term plan studies the current water supply system to determine if there are operational efficiencies that could yield additional water supply. It also identifies potential water supply projects that could meet the future drinking water needs of the Tampa Bay region.

Elizabeth Holder died Jan. 19 at Mease Countryside Hospital in Safety Harbor. Pamela Wilson, a family support worker with Pinellas County Sheriffs Child Protection Investigations Division, was fired Aug. 13 for lying to investigators. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced results of an administrative investigation Aug. 16 and the agencys review of policies and procedures surrounding the removal of children by the Child Protection Investigations Division and their timely health screenings. Elizabeth was removed from her parents care Jan. 11. She had been living in a mobile home at 2381 Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard in unincorporated Clearwater that Gualtieri described as dirty and unfit to live in. The Sheriffs Office got involved when Child Protection investigators were called to the home after the child was found wandering around the mobile home park unattended. Her mother was arrested for child neglect and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Gualtieri said the mother was on non-prescribed prescription medications and unable to care for Elizabeth or her 2-year-old sister. The father, Corey Holder, came by the day of the arrest, but he too was on prescription medications and unable to take care of the children. A decision was made to place the children in foster care. Eckerd Community Alternatives, who serves as the Community-Based Care Lead Agency for child welfare and foster care in Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough counties, was contacted to make arrangements for the two children. Elizabeth and her sister were placed in foster care the evening of Jan. 11. At a hearing the next day, a judge ruled there was sufficient cause to remove the children from their home. State law requires that a child removed from their home undergo a mandatory health screening within 72 hours. Gualtieri said on Jan. 1, a family support worker tried unsuccessfully to set an appointment for Elizabeth to receive a screening. Neither the health department nor a private provider who had treated the child in the past could see her that day. An appointment was set with the private provider on Jan. 22 well beyond the 72 hours. On Jan. 18, a week after the children were taken away from their parents, the foster parents took Elizabeth and her sister to a babysitter in Dunedin. The child went to bed about 9 p.m. and woke up about 8:30 a.m. She played, watched TV and she ate, Gualtieri said. About 4 p.m., she began screaming and holding her head. She said it hurt and asked that it stop hurting. She went limp and went into cardiac arrest. 911 responded and she was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital where at about 5 p.m., she was pronounced dead. The medical examiner found no sign of trauma, Gualtieri said. The cause of death was endocardial fibrosis with a contributory condition of tonsillitis. Endocardial fibrosis is marked by a thickening of the lining of the heart chambers and is an uncommon cause of heart failure in infants and children.Subsequent investigationAfter Elizabeths death, Gualtieri ordered a review of procedures and an investigation by Internal Affairs, which interviewed three Child Protection Investigations employees: Supervisor Sarah Pierce, Investigator Brett Edwards and Wilson. The investigation concluded that none of the three was personally responsible for Elizabeth not receiving her health screening within 72 hours. It was a problem with procedure, its a system problem, not any one individuals fault, Gualtieri said. He made it clear that Wilson lost her job not because of the failure of the child to receive the health screening but because she lied. It was not because of what she did or did not do with the 72-hour health screening, he said. During the investigation Pam Wilson lied and Im not going to tolerate people lying to our Internal Affairs investigators or lying period as an employee of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and especially to these subsequent matters. This is not the first time. In fact it is the second time in the course of her 30-year career here at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office that Pam Wilson has had a substantiated complaint of being untruthful. Wilson began working for PCSO July 25, 1983. The prior complaint involved being untruthful about the unauthorized use of an agency issued vehicle that was stopped by law enforcement in Tampa. In the case of Elizabeth Holder, Wilson gave a variety of substantiated and unsubstantiated reasons why she didnt do her job properly, including having a migraine headache, working a partial shift, working overtime, having another case, not knowing procedure and others. The state requires documentation about children who are removed from the home to be entered into a state-run computer system within 24 hours. She didnt do it and during the investigation lied several times about why she did not do it, Gualtieri said. Im not going to tolerate it. Pam was terminated because of untruthfulness, not because she didnt set an appointment (for the health screening).Problems with the systemGualtieri said the review of procedures and protocols showed a variety of problems. Unfortunately this is not the first time we had not ensured that the 72-hour health screening was completed, he said. In fact, the investigation revealed this happened many times. In 2012, PCSO investigated more than 11,000 cases of abandonment, abuse and neglect allegations. Gualtieri said every year for the past several years, investigators had looked into more than 11,000 allegations. The numbers are up this year and were on track to investigate between 14,000 and 15,000 allegations of abuse, abandonment and neglect, he said. Of the 11,000 cases in 2012, 884 resulted in children being removed from the home. In 238 cases, it was not possible to tell if the health screening was done or not. The sheriff explained that the Family Support System is the states computer system that Child Protection employees are required to use to document their actions. Theres no field to enter the data to indicate whether the screening was done or not done, he said. Employees used the notes section, which is not searchable by the computer. We had to manually search and by hand review every one of the 884 cases in 2012 to review these cases, and digging into them we were unable to tell whether they (health screenings) were done or not, Gualtieri said. They might have been done. They might have been timely, or they might not have been timely or it might not have been done at all. I cant tell you. He said of the 664 cases, it was confirmed that the screenings complied with law 279 times or in 43 percent of cases, another 198 were not done in a timely basis and 169 were not required to have a screening, for reasons including becoming a part of the foster care system at birth or while in the hospital. Of the 477 screenings that were done, 58 percent were one within 72 hours and 41 percent were not. A number of reasons and factors contributed to the problem, he said. One cause is the ambiguity of the language in the contract between PCSO and Eckerd that says the health screening must be initiated within 72 hours, not completed. Eckerds agreement with the state says Eckerd must do the screenings. Let me make it clear, this is not Eckerds responsibility. Under the law, it says it has to be done but it does not say who has to do it, Gualtieri said. He said because PCSO contracts with Eckerd for services it is ultimately the sheriffs responsibility. At the end of the day, it falls on us period. It doesnt fall on anyone else, he said. Another problem was getting immediate access to health care providers for appointments. He said the employee who made an appointment for Elizabeth with a health care provider who had seen the child in the past was a good thing. A preference within the system is for the kids to be evaluated by someone who has familiarity with the kid, he said. But the delay in the appointment past 72 hours did not comply with the law. So when you start putting it all together, it is a series of things that contributed to it (the health screening not being done), he said.Fixes to the systemChild Protection Investigations employees now have purchasing cards to use to pay for health screenings. The children can be taken to a walk in clinic, emergency room or any other health care provider to make sure the health evaluation is done in accordance with the law. We really broadened the scope of the network where we can get the screening, Gualtieri said. PCSO also has cleared up the lack of clarity in internal policies to make it understood who is responsible for making sure health screenings are done. The agency is also working toward better supervision and training for support workers. Were taking remedial action to fix all these details, Gualtieri said. I take complete responsibility for this. It is something we should have done. The ultimate question that I dont know the answer to and nobody knows the answer to and may not ever know the answer to, is whether the failure to conduct the 72-hour health screening would have made a difference. Gualtieri said he did not know of any other case, even arguable, where the lack of a health screening adversely affected a child. I really dont know as we stand here today whether the failure to complete the health screening would have made a difference, he said. If she had such a severe case of tonsillitis and it contributed to her death through the endocardial fibrosis and we had done the health screening within 72 hours and some physician had, as a result of the health screening, put her on antibiotics, by that Friday would it had made a difference, I dont know, Gualtieri said. But if it was viral, the antibiotics would have made no difference at all. Gualtieri said no further details would be available, as litigation has started. The father is represented by a lawyer, he said. However, he did say the investigation would continue and PCSO was moving forward to make sure sufficient protocols were in place for the future. But putting all that aside, putting the law aside, putting aside the whole issue of whether it was bacterial or viral or whether it (the health screening) would have made a difference, we should have done it and made sure she received a health screening, he said. It would be a nonissue if we had accomplished that.PCSO reports on investigation of childs death Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Simmons takes over the program from Greg Thiel, who led the track program for the past five seasons. Thiel was hired as the head track and field coach at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina. Born and raised in Clearwater, Simmons began his legacy as one of the states premier student athletes at Dunedin High School, where he was an all-county baseball player and an all-American in football and track and field. Stacey earned a full football and track scholarship to the University of Florida. As a Gator, Simmons was an all-SEC performer and three times NCAA All-American, breaking three UF track and field records. Simmons earned the opportunity to compete internationally in track and field and was a member of the USA track and field team. In 1990, the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL draft selected Simmons. After two seasons with the Colts, Simmons spent eight additional seasons in professional football, winning two world championships with the Tampa Bay Storm. Simmons is a 20-year veteran in Pinellas County Schools where he has served as a science teacher and a coach for football, cross country, and track and field. Simmons has coached and trained many athletes to help them reach the pinnacle in their sport. Under his leadership, student athletes have earned track and field medals on the district, regional, and State levels. In a press release, Calvarys Athletic Director, Darrell Don said, We are thankful to have Stacey Simmons on our coaching staff. His experience and knowledge will enable our athletes to improve their mechanics, technique, and agility which will improve their performance on the track and in the field. Simmons takes over the growing track and field program at Calvary, where the girls team earned the 2012 Regional Championship, and was the 2013 CoChampions. The boys team showed promise this past spring by sending nine athletes to the FHSAA State Championship with seven of the athletes earning allstate recognition.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, August 22, 2013Washington is an island surrounded by reality, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, likes to say. In an effort to inject some reality into the Beltway, Grassley introduced an amendment to the Affordable Care Act to require that members of Congress and their staff get their health care from the new Obamacare exchanges. Congress should live under the laws it creates. That includes Obamacare, Grassley explained. Enter Washington reality: The rules dont apply to the governing class. Congress eventually passed the Grassley amendment, and it was included in the bill President Barack Obama signed, but that doesnt mean Washington insiders cant get around it. There are two things for the political class not to like in the Grassley amendment. To start, the 11,000 or so members and Capitol Hill staffers now enjoy Cadillac coverage as participants in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. The Grassley provision is supposed to make that go away and force those individuals to buy their own coverage through the less prestigious Obamacare health insurance exchanges. But also, the government read: taxpayers picks up more than 70 percent of the premiums. There was no language in the final Grassley provision to continue the federal subsidy. Supporters have been able to sell Obamacare coverage as affordable because the government subsidizes premiums for some middle-income workers. Senators and representatives make $174,000, and their wellcompensated staffers can make more than members. Thus, the Grassley amendment represents a pay cut for Hill aides. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted the pay cut would cause savvy Capitol Hill staffers to stampede toward the private sector. Politico reported that both Republicans and Democrats were looking for a way around the law to prevent what wags had dubbed the coming Beltway brain drain. After Obama reportedly told Democrats behind closed doors that he would help, the Office of Personnel Management announced a proposed rule to save Congress from its own law. So the government would continue to pay its employer contribution of premiums. On the one hand, that seems fair. Who wants to get a pay cut and a second-tier health package? On the other hand, this is another example of Washingtons taking care of its own in order to prop up a health care plan that costs taxpayers money by discouraging employers from hiring full-time workers. In Congress, members cannot lose, but the public can. Worse, the Office of Personnel Management didnt stop there. Its new proposed rule also would allow each member of Congress to determine whether an employed individual meets the statutory definition of congressional staff. The OPMs rationale was that there is no existing statutory or regulatory definition of the term official office. As if official office is an exotic cipher. What do we pay these people for if they cant figure out what an official office is? As a result of that brilliant maneuver, senators and congressmen will be able to exempt their staffers if they so choose. Capitol Hill, it turns out, is one colossal goldendomed exemption. In pushing his amendment in 2010, Grassley rightly argued: Its only fair and logical that administration leaders and congressional staff, who fought so hard to overhaul Americas health care system, experience it for themselves. If the reforms are as good as promised, then theyll know it firsthand. If there are problems, public officials will be in a position to really understand the problems, as they should. But theres this ugly reality on Obamacare Island: The rules do not apply to the people who make them.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.In recent weeks, events in Major League Baseball, the NFL and elsewhere have given us a vivid reminder that performanceenhancing drugs are pervasive in the sports world. Quite simply, they are a problem that must be dealt with. The Florida High School Athletic Association has recognized this problem for some time, and has policies that prohibit the use of performance-enhancing drugs. But if anyone else wondered if concern is really necessary, their doubts should have been erased with news accounts indicating that the Biogenesis scandal wasnt limited to just professional and collegiate athletes. South Florida high school athletes have also been implicated among the clinics possible customers, and there is no reason to believe the problem is limited to that clinic or that part of the state. Under existing FHSAA sportsmanship bylaws and policies, studentathletes can be suspended from competing if they have used PEDs, until medical evidence proves they are clean. But now, in light of everything happening in the sports world, I have grown concerned that the existing policies may not be enough. We must be sure our policies and procedures which are in place, after all, to protect the well-being of our student-athletes and the integrity of the games they play truly deter ambitious and misguided athletes, coaches and even parents who think its okay to cheat in order to tilt the playing field to their own advantage. This win-at-allcosts mentality is not what high school sports are supposed to be about. That is why I asked FHSAAs Sports Medicine Advisory Committee to conduct a top-to-bottom review of existing policies to make sure they do everything possible to discourage, detect and penalize the use of performance-enhancing drugs and human growth hormone by high school student-athletes. The 16 members of this committee include physicians, professors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and coaches experts who understand sports and young athletes, and can bring an incredible amount of expertise to this important task. The FHSAAs overriding priority is the safety, well-being and constructive development of young student-athletes, whose bodies and character are still forming. Performance-enhancing drugs undermine every aspect of this goal, and so it is imperative that our student-athletes adhere to a zero tolerance policy toward these inherently unfair and dangerous substances. We must draw a line in the sand against performing-enhancing drugs and the inappropriate use of human growth hormone. School districts cannot tolerate coaches who encourage or look the other way when athletes use PEDs. These coaches cannot be allowed to keep their jobs or have anything to do with young athletes. This is about more than safeguarding fair play its about saving lives. Im proud of the FHSAAs history as a leader in protecting the safety of our young student-athletes. In the last several years alone we became one of the first states to establish strict policies to address concussions and problems caused by extreme heat and inadequate hydration. Now a careful review of PED policies will lead to the best approach to keeping these banned substances out of our high schools. This is another important step to protect our student-athletes. The overwhelming majority of high school student-athletes will never compete at the collegiate level, and just a tiny percentage will ever have a shot at making a living playing the games they love. We need to do everything we can to foster that love, to keep the games fun, and to protect these young men and women from harm. Performance-enhancing drugs simply have no place in high school sports.Roger Dearing is executive director of the Florida High School Athletic Association, based in Gainesville. He is a former coach, athletic director and Manatee County School Superintendent.Have you become aware of some of the following things showing up in our passing parade? MORE BRITISH ON THE SCENE. Its hard to turn on the TV or radio these days without hearing a British accent. It seems that half the foreign correspondents are British. When CNN or NBC News cuts to a reporter stationed in Syria or China, chances are the reporter will have a British accent. Or it could be Australian, Welsh or Scottish. Does the UK generate an over-supply of journalists, or what? In most cases, they usually speak a better quality of English than Americans do. Which is only proper, since the English invented the language in the first place. THE DECLINE OF DECIMATE. Speaking of language, have you noticed how the term to decimate has been downgraded to mean annihilate or utterly destroy? Not too long ago, when correct English was honored and sometimes even practiced, decimate meant to execute one out of every 10 rebellious soldiers. Thats how the ancient Romans often put down uprisings. Today, newscasters and other arbiters of public taste speak blithely of floods that decimate entire towns and populations. By drowning every tenth victim, we presume. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CNN AND FOX NEWS. These two companies battle each other to see whos on top of the national news game. Officially they both promise to bring fair and balanced coverage of news. Fox is often accused of leaning too far to the right. Conservatives paint CNN as a tool of the Establishment and even (horrors!) of the Obama administration. I enjoy flipping back and forth between these news agencies, just to see what their non-political differences seem to be. Both organizations tend to employ 20-ish, glib blonde women who chatter on about Mideast revolutions and Hungarian politics as if they actually knew where Cairo and Budapest are (and perhaps they do.) The faces of CNNs Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper seem more familiar to me than the Fox News anchors do, but that doesnt mean they do a better job. I keep hoping that CNN will get rid of that prissy Englishman Piers Morgan, who gives the impression of stumbling over his lips as he spits out his commentary. As a rule CNNs people appear more polished and informed than Foxs presenters. I feel guilty for letting appearance carry weight in forming my judgments. But then I remind myself that, in television news, good looks and slick delivery count for just as much as content and accuracy do. Sad, but true. JUDGE JUDY DEFENDS OUR LANGUAGE. Earlier this year I wrote a column criticizing Judge Judy for her high-handed treatment of the contestants who appear before her. In an email from her husband, I caught unshirted hell for my remarks. I still would not want to face her in a courtroom showdown, but Im mellowing in my attitude toward Judge Judy because of her impatience with plaintiffs/defendants whose speech habits are about two steps up from those of cave dwellers. The judge insists on yes as a response, not yeah. And she cracks down on the ubiquitous use of the useless filler word basically by persons giving testimony. Go get em, Your Honor. What this country needs is more grammar Nazis. WHEN A MAJOR CRIME OR DISASTER OCCURS and the police chief or mayor promptly holds a televised press conference, have you noticed how the official usually puts enormous stress on how quickly the first responders arrived at the scene? Its as if the agency-in-charge is in a national competition to see who comes to the rescue the quickest. We all admire and respect the cops and firefighters who race toward danger, but do we really care whether they got to the scene within three minutes of the first alarm, rather than two and a half? The only explanation I can think of is that in many emergencies there may be a discontented watchdog standing by, timing the rescuers for possible legal or political reasons. ITS GETTING HARDER TO SURF THE WEB. Or so it seems to me. Not long ago, you could type in Latest news, click a key and be flooded with news headlines. Today youre liable to get eight spam-type secondary websites saying Asia news, or Join our newshound chat room before you finally fight your way through to useful content. You want lean-and-mean surfing, and instead you get embroidery. DONALD TRUMP CONTINUES TO INSPIRE all of us with his consistency of behavior and attitudes.

More than a fishing show, Reel Dream Makers is a television series of heart-warming accounts of fulfilling dreams while enjoying the simple joys of fishing and spending time with family. Wrapped in the story are the traditional tips and techniques. But, what makes the Reel Dream Makers fishing show different is that it features celebrities and the charities they support alongside one of their families in need. TradeWinds Island Resorts provides the shows backdrop. Last season, the stories varied from foster care families that scrimped and saved to keep their family functioning to a mother who is a war veteran suffering from PTSD and her young son, together fighting homelessness. The show provides them with an escape in a world-class resort environment with all the accoutrements and the diversion of spending time fishing and reconnecting with themselves and their dreams. I can think of no better way to help a family re-connect and recover than time on the water, and when it is for a good cause, how can you beat that, said Josie Tucci in a press release. Tucci is vice president of MarineMax. Headquartered in Clearwater, MarineMax is a recreational boat and yacht retailer. Focused on premium brands, such as Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Meridian, Cabo, Hatteras, Azimut Yachts, Grady-White, Bayliner, Harris FloteBote, Crest, Scout, Sailfish, Aquila, Nautique and Malibu, MarineMax sells new and used recreational boats and related marine products and services as well as provides yacht brokerage and charter services.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerSocialization is critical for all people, regardless of age. But seniors can be more prone to a state of loneliness if there is little contact with others. Most seniors have spent a good portion of their lives, raising children and/or in the workforce. Once the children build lives of their own or possibly plans for retirement are near, socialization decreases, especially if the seniors are losing some of their independence such as driving. An active social lifestyle is more important than ever in helping seniors maintain a sharp mind that will help keep them connected to the world around them and increase their feelings of happiness. Helping others is one of the best ways to feel better about you and at the same time continue to stay socially involved. Seniors who stay connected have less depressionVolunteering in the local community is also a great way for seniors to stay active, involved and will enhance the feeling of belonging. There truly is a need for volunteers in various organizations. The skills and talents of seniors in our society are valuable and needed. Volunteering in a local hospital is very rewarding. Escorting patients, assisting with clerical tasks, staffing the gift shop or greeting visitors is just a few examples of possibilities. If you have a parent or loved one whom you care for, acting as an advocate can be an intimidating task. But there are ways to remain positive, and proactive with your aging parents. The key is to be attentive, understanding, and involved with your parents as they age. Your positive attitude and your efforts to understand their feelings is a wonderful way to say thank you for all they have done for you over the years.

No one had air conditioning back then. All the windows in the house stayed open. He once described a clammy routine: rousing in the steamy darkness groggily to flip over his pillow, whose bottom side was fractionally cooler than its topside. Though a Midwestern suburbanite myself, months of fieldwork in Mexico saw me sleeping outside in a desert that peaked at 120 degrees F. during the day. Luckily, that desert bordered the sea, and that sea had islands, from whose beaches we would scoop out little bodysized trenches for settling into at sunset, watching until stars gave way to dreams. Though the breeze was as steady as the surf, I too had my share of pillow flipping. To my knowledge, pillow flipping does not have a counterpart out at sea. How do our local dolphins handle the heat? Granted, their insulating coats of blubber become thinner during the summer than the winter, but never disappear entirely. Moreover, dolphins have high metabolic rates that fuel their ceaseless swimming and keep them cozy; in other words, dolphin bodies generate a lot of internal heat. One possible mechanism for handling seas that are some 85 degrees might be a simple mechanical one: slow down. That is what their behavior currently suggests, anyway. Their movements have grown almost tepid, swimming without ceasing as always more languidly than briskly of late. Is it just the dolphins we have seen or is rushing around August seas just not worth the heat it generates? This line of thinking began with a recent motherchild reunion between a weaned teen and her mother. FM and her current calf Fennel were in the company of a small adult, which turned out to be AM. FM had AM in 2005. In the years since usurper Fennel made his appearance in 2009, AM has reunited with her mom FM and brother Fennel more often than is typical for this behavior. Although AMs mother-child reunions are more frequent, they are as characteristically fleeting. AM spent most of her time submerged, surfacing periodically for air. In the meantime, FM and Fennel tread back and forth over a short stretch of water so slowly and methodically that it nearly hypnotized Capt. John Heidemann and me. Wiping off the ennui of their languor with our sweat, the next dolphin encounter was another example of torpid behavior. The sharp eyes of Capt. Heidemann spied tiny dark forms on the surface way in the distance. Deep in a side bay off the beaten track, two mother-calf pairs and a pair of bulls proceeded to take island time to a new level. Courtney and her calf Cutlass oozed down a short finger, followed by the still-languid FM and Fennel. Big bulls N and Riptab followed indolently. The bulls lingering surfaces gave us a good look at the parallel slashes across their rounded melons. I was startled to see those slashes, called toothrakes, glaring under the August sun. This is because both N and Riptab had each been grabbed by the head by some very sharp teeth six months ago in March. Would you believe that some toothrakes are visible for over 8 months? Courtney seemed to be the only dolphin with a mission in mind, albeit an unhurried one, and the others more or less followed her lead. She and Cutlass left the finger without haste and headed west. FM and Fennel wandered after them eventually, using the same patent lack of energy that had distinguished them earlier. The bulls left the finger too but headed east instead of west. We watched them until they were dots in the distance and turned our attention to the moms and calves. They headed down the long wide waterway all the way to the end where it loops like a letter J. There they dispersed languorously and embarked on underwater searches. Bulls N and Riptab returned and rejoined the ladies by and by. Judging from their swim speed, it may well have taken them to swim to the main road and back again! Rather than search the seas slowly like the others, the big bulls swam among them indolently, pacing each other perfectly. Calves Fennel and Cutlass took a brief stab at active play, but the episode died as quickly as a firework. Much later, they all slowly wandered out again. I wish I had a livelier tale for you, but those poor little dolphins act like sleep walkers. On livelier occasions, or cooler seas, Fennel plays a game of catch with a mangrove seedpod called a horsetail.Photo by ANN WEAVER Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver Nature eventsBrooker to present Book TimeTARPON SPRINGS Book Time at Brooker will be offered Thursday, Aug. 22, 10:30 to 11:15 a.m., at Brooker Creek Preserve, 3940 Keystone Road.

Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The Worlds End. Twenty-odd years later, the five musketeers have each left their hometown and are now husbands, fathers, men with careers with the flashing-red-light exception of their voluble onetime ringleader, Gary King (Simon Pegg), who is now a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens.

He convinces Andy, Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman), and Peter (Eddie Marsan) to stage an encore, and one Friday afternoon they are all reunited. Gary is in his element: the mandate is one night, five guys, twelve pubs imbibing at least one pint apiece at each establishment. Arriving in Newton Haven, they re-encounter Olivers sister Sam (Rosamund Pike), for whom Gary and Steven each still carry a torch. As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankinds. Reaching The Worlds End is the least of their worries.Photo by RAFY/CONSTANTIN FILM INTERNATIONALJace (Jamie Campbell Bower) and Clary (Lilly Collins) gaze through a bookcase in Screen Gems fantasy-action The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Devils PassGenre: Thriller Cast: Holly Gross, Matt Stokoe, Luke Albright, Ryan Hawley, Gemma Atkinson and Richard Reid Director: Renny Harlin Not rated Fact: In February of 1959, nine Russian hikers ventured into a remote area of the Ural Mountains in Russia. Fact: Two weeks later, all nine were found dead. Fact: What happened to them is a mystery that has baffled investigators and researchers for decades. It has become known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident. Rumors have attributed their deaths to everything from alien encounters and government conspiracies to supernatural causes. To date, no one has been able to adequately explain what drove nine experienced hikers from their tents so frantically that they ripped through the material from the inside; or how their bodies came to be exposed to such dangerous amounts of radiation that it was still detected weeks later. And no one knows why they were discovered hundreds of yards from their camp, half dressed and with internal injuries including broken ribs and fractured skulls, but with no external wounds at all. The body of one young woman was even missing her tongue. Present Day: Five ambitious American college students are issued a grant to return to the site of the original events in the belief that they can uncover and document the truth of what happened at Dyatlovs Pass. But what they find is more shocking than anything they could have imagined. Their trek through the Ural Mountains, retracing the steps of that ill-fated journey, is plagued by strange and increasingly terrifying phenomena, all of which suggest that in spite of their desolate surroundings, they are not alone. The forces behind the Dyatlov Pass Incident have been waiting for them. The students recently recovered footage the only clue to what happened to them was deemed too disturbing for public eyes. But, like everything else connected to Dyatlovs Pass, the truth has found its way out. Drinking BuddiesGenre: Comedy Cast: Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston Director: Joe Swanberg Rated: R Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) work together at a craft brewery. They have one of those friendships that feels like it could be something more. But Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick).

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.

Do the terms flower power, free love, far out and Summer of Love bring back a flood of memories? For one evening, step back in time four decades to when the hippie subculture flourished. Hippiefest 2013 will be presented Saturday, Aug. 24, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road. Tickets start at $45. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Ruth Eckerd Hall has been hosting the annual Hippiefest event since 2008. Past lineups have included artists such as Eric Burdon and the Animals, Badfinger, Jack Bruce of Cream, Mountain and Traffics Dave Mason. This year, Hippiefest will showcase five iconic blues-rock artists. The evening will feature performances by such well-known artists as Ten Years After, Edgar Winter Band, Canned Heat, Rick Derringer and Pat Travers. What better way to cure the summertime blues than with a sizzling rock n blues festival? All inspired to pick up their instruments due to their love for rock and blues, these five artists hit the road this summer beginning with a show July 27 at The Cannery Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event also will feature a Hippiefest marketplace. Concessionaires will be selling beads, tie-dyes and other reminders of Woodstock, San Franciscos Haight-Ashbury district and the youth movement that introduced a whole new outlook to life. The marketplace will open at 5 p.m.Ten Years AfterIn 1967, four young musicians from Nottinghamshire, England, formed the band Ten Years After. Founding members included Leo Lyons, Ric Lee, Chick Churchill and Alvin Lee. Ten Years After became one of the biggest names in music and one of the most explosive quartets on the world stage. Their now legendary encore, Im Going Home, performed at Woodstock in August 1969, was captured on film and exposed their jazz, blues, rock amalgam to a large audience, who were blown away by the intensity of the bands performance when the Academy Award winning documentary was released. The band released nine albums between 1967 and 1974, including Ten Years After, Undead, Stonedhenge, Ssssh, Cricklewood Green, Watt, A Space in Time, Rock & Roll Music to the World and Positive Vibrations. The song Love Like a Man off the 1970 album Cricklewood Green reached No. 10 on the UK charts. In 1971, the band had a Top 40 hit with Id Love To Change The World. After Alvin Lee left the band for a solo career, Ten Years After ceased recording and touring for many years. A chance opportunity in early 2002 for the other three original members of Ten Years After (bassist Leo Lyons, drummer Ric Lee and keyboardist Chick Churchill) to work together again gave them an insight into the intense, re-awakened interest in the band. In 2003, vocalist/guitarist Joe Gooch joined the line-up and the band soon released a studio album titled Now, which was followed by a live effort in 2005. Today, the members of Ten Years After are eager to re-create the music, energy and excitement theyve been known for over the past several decades. All the members of Ten Years After are enthusiastic about reuniting with Edgar, Rick and especially Canned Heat again, said Ric Lee in a press release issued by tour promoter Albright Entertainment Group. Original members Chick Churchill, Leo Lyons and I first performed alongside Canned Heat at the legendary Fillmore Ballroom on our first tour of the United States in 1968 and have remained good friends ever since. We are also excited to tour the U.S. as we pay tribute to band-mate Alvin Lee, while igniting a new wave of youthful excitement and appeasing longterm fans. Alvin Lee passed away earlier this year from unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure.Edgar Winter BandFrom his critically acclaimed debut release, Entrance, Winter has demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross the genre lines and do the unexpected. Spawning the No. 1 hit Frankenstein and the ever-popular Free Ride, Winters album They Only Come Out at Night was released in 1973, peaked at the No. 3 position on the Billboard Hot 200 and stayed on the charts for an impressive 80 weeks. It was certified gold in April 1973 and double platinum in November 1986. Winter invented the keyboard body strap early in his career, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around on stage during his multi-instrument high-energy performances. He was also the first artist to feature a synthesizer as the main instrument in a song. Frankenstein revolutionized rock and roll and opened up a whole new world of possibilities with experimentation and sound. Winters music has been featured in several major national television and radio and advertising campaigns. In addition, his music can be heard in no fewer than 15 film and television projects. This is Edgar Winter, and we will be rockin the blues again this year , Winter said in a press release. For those of you who saw us last year, we will be doing a new and very different show. Winter is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of Frankenstein and Free Ride on the album They Only Come Out At Night. We intend to celebrate the occasion by playing some of the songs from that album I havent done in years, like We All Had A Real Good Time, Hangin Around and Undercover Man, Winter said. We are very excited, this ones going to be a blast! It means the world to me to be playing the music I love, and see you all out there having a good time. So we look forward to seeing you at one of the shows, and get ready to rock and roll!Canned HeatWe are all looking forward to a great tour with our longtime friends of Ten Years After and Edgar Winter, said Skip Taylor, Canned Heats longtime manager. It should be as much fun for us as for the audience. Canned Heat joins the popular summer tour for the first time. Two blues historians and avid record collectors founded the band in 1966. Alan Blind Owl Wilson and Bob The Bear Hite drew on their encyclopedic knowledge of all phases of the genre and focused on recording updated versions of obscure old blues recordings. Applying this bold approach, the band attained two worldwide hits, On The Road Again in 1968 and Going Up The Country in 1969. These two songs were inspired interpretations of 1920s blues recordings by Floyd Jones and Henry Thomas. Canned Heat earned international attention with memorable performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969. Canned Heats unique blend of modern electric blues, rock and boogie has earned them a loyal following and influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands during the past four decades.Rick DerringerIts doubtful that anyone will be sitting in their seats when Rick Derringer breaks into his wellknown rock anthem, Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo. The song continues to be a staple on rock radio and was featured in several movies including The Spirit of , Rush, Stag, What a Girl Wants and the cult classic, Dazed and Confused. Years before his success as a solo artist, Derringer had a band at the age of 17 called The McCoys. The McCoys scored a No.1 hit in 1965 with the song Hang on Sloopy. The song would eventually be knocked out of the top spot by The Beatles Yesterday. In 1966, Derringer found himself leading The McCoys as they opened for The Rolling Stones on their U.S. tour. Throughout the s and s, Derringer appeared on numerous albums with artists such as Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand and Kiss. Beginning in 1993, Derringer recorded four blues CDs, starting with Back To the Blues and followed by Electra Blues, Blues Deluxe and Jackhammer Blues, released in 2000. Pat TraversCanadian rock guitarist Pat Travers released his critically acclaimed debut album in 1976. The album featuring his own brand of high quality s guitar rock and roll. Over the next several years, Travers released a string of strong hard rock albums, such as Makin Magic (1977), Putting It Straight (1977), Heat in the Street (1978) and Crash and Burn (1980). He and his band supported Rush on their Drive til You Die tour in support of A Farewell to Kings. Crash and Burn featured the blues-rock hit single Snortin Whiskey which has become one of Travers signature songs. Travers kept busy over the following decades, delivering melodic s rock, blues throughout most of the s, and a series of noted performances with various power trios since 2000. As he entered his fifth decade in the music industry, Travers has returned to the trademark Pat Travers Band sound. I am so excited to be part of a tour that has some of my favorite artists on it playing some of the best music ever written and performed, Travers said in a press release.
