Council OKs 15-home development By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council unanimously approved a small lakefront development on 4.8 acres at 8003 Seminole Boulevard at its Aug. 27 meeting. The development agreement with Lake Shore Development LLP and Domain Homes Inc. allows for the construction of 15 single-family detached homes on the site of a former mobile home park located east of Seminole Boulevard and north of Lake Vista Drive. Before construction begins at the end of the year, the developers will address several concerns in the area, including rodents and rerouting a sewage line. Developers also will construct a 6-foot silt fence in order to curb erosion. In other action items, the council: Approved the donation of $200 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving for its Oct. 4 Walk Like MADD event in Indian Rocks Beach in a 4-3 vote. MADD is a great organization and I appreciate it, said Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn. Councilor Bob Mathews offered to donate the $200 out of pocket if the council didnt approve the donation. Mayor Leslie Waters said the council has been focusing on contributing less to nonprofit organizations. Very few these days get taxpayer money, she said. Councilor Chris Burke said that after reviewing the city budget, he saw that the city gave tax money to several nonprofit groups not located in Seminole. So this isnt anything out of the ordinary for our budget process, he said. Authorized a one-year extension of the citys current Emergency Medical Services ALS First Responder Agreement with Pinellas County. The agreement, which originally took effect on Oct. 1, 2010, provides ALS First Responder Services to the Seminole Emergency Medical Services District, which covers the City of Seminole, the Seminole Fire District, the portion of the Pinellas Suncoast Fire Rescue District located on mainland and east of the Intracoastal Waterway, and shared responsibilities with the City of Madeira Beach for the Redington Beaches Emergency Medical Services District.

We are truly excited about being the opening act for this years Music in the Park event, said Haley. Seminole is a great place to live and we feel privileged to be able to connect and participate in many community events each year. Seminole celebrates and embraces the diversity of its residents, as well as extends opportunities to collaborate in great programming. SPAN will be sharing a program called A Night with Sinatra and Friends. We will enjoy songs most people associate with Sinatra such as My Way, New York New York, Thats Life, Fly Me to the Moon and Strangers in the Night, said Haley. As well, we will offer songs some of his friends made famous such as Candy Man, Everybody Loves Somebody and Moon River. Now in its 17th year, the Music in the Park concert series began with a few people in the community that wanted an event for the arts, according to Duane Crandall, recreation program coordinator for the city of Seminole. They brought a proposal to the city and were given the OK to begin as a committee-based operation for the city, Crandall said in an email. Recreation division became more and more involved. We still operate as a committeebased event. Crandall said members scour the community for performers and then vote on them as a committee. We are always looking for new committee members who want to get involved with the Music in the Park committee, Crandall said. This event is a sponsor driven event. No city tax Photo by JULIANA A.

Page 8A.Get the scoop about all the new movies opening in theaters. See Diversions.... Page 1B.Riddick, A Teacher set to open this weekend in Pinellas By JULIANA A. TORRESSEMINOLE A construction pickup truck rolled over and spilled diesel fuel on Park Boulevard near Lake Seminole Park Aug. 29, causing traffic delays on both Park and Seminole boulevards while crews cleaned up the spill. Seminole Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the crash at around 11:20 a.m. The driver of the Dodge Ram, who has not been identified, was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries via ambulance, according to agency spokesperson Brad Dykens. Between 20 to 40 gallons of fuel spilled onto Park Boulevard from the pickup truck, which was also carrying construction equipment, Dykens said. He must have fueled up this morning, he said. Crews worked to contain the spill and to keep it from going into the estuary. Firefighters used hazardous containment products that operated like dams to keep the fuel from spilling down the gutters and into the sewer system. They also laid down a flame-retardant blanket to keep the fuel from catching fire. But the agency called a private contractor to the scene to help clean up the mess, Dykens said. It exceeded the capabilities we had, he explained. Officials had to cordon off eastbound Park Boulevard while the spill was cleaned up. Without an easy detour around the blocked roadway, traffic was severely affected throughout the area.

By BOB COSTIGANThe Pinellas Technical Education Centers along with its Public Works Academy has been offering students various career and technical education courses since 1962. Today they offer a wide range of programs, everything from accounting and automotive service technology to computer systems technology to dental assistant and practical nursing more than 60 programs in all. Their mission is to provide students the opportunity to develop nationalworkplace competencies to fill the needs of business and industry. Edward Davidson, 55, of St. Petersburg and Rashard Young, 22, of Clearwater are both currently unemployed and are students in PTECs Public Works Academy. They volunteer at Pinellas Countys South Cross Bayou water reclamation plant as part of the curriculums volunteer requirement time needed to graduate. Young said he is interested in someday becoming a wastewater or water treatment plant operator. He discovered that PTEC enabled him an opportunity to get his foot in the door with a big city or municipality while going to school and getting his license. Davidson, who previously worked in construction, said he was looking for a career change when he heard about PTEC. He likes PTEC, saying it prepares you to get a job with a city or county and it gives you the hands-on training needed. And you get to network with a lot of different people. Davidson also would like to become a facility operator. While he notes no one knows for sure what the future holds, this is really going to help us. While they have only been volunteering at the plant for a few weeks, together they have done and are learning to do a variety of things, such as working with the plant operator to determine how much chemicals, such as chlorine, is in the water. Christina Pellegatti, technical project coordinator at South Cross Bayou, believes Davidson and Young as well as PTEC and the Public Works Academy are very helpful. With the budget shortfalls that county has seen in recent years, they have come to rely on volunteers more and more. Its a win-win situation for everyone, she said. Ray Gorman is a teacher at the Public Works Academy and agrees with Pellegatti, He notes that for students like Davidson and Young its a training and education program to help them get entry-level jobs in public works, which has about 14 different career paths. The academy has supplied South Cross Bayou with volunteer students in the past. Its a great relationship because without the assistance we have with Pinellas County it would be very difficult for us to do our program, said Gorman. Our students have to have 195 hours of intern on the job experience so the volunteer program has been a real success in helping our students meet that requirement. Both Davidson and Young receive financial aid through the school. They offer Federal Pell Grants and other agency scholarships, which are available to eligible students and is used to help students meet their educational expenses. Pinellas County volunteers can expect to make a difference in the life of their community, while exploring interests, sharing knowledge, assisting others and making friends.

With a lot of love and a great deal of care, she grew that seed into a 40-pound cabbage enormous by any standard. She decided to donate her super cabbage to her local soup kitchen where it helped to feed more than 275 people. Today, Katie is 14, a high school student, and the proud owner of a company called Katies Krops (www.katieskrops.com) that donates thousands of pounds of fresh produce from numerous gardens to organizations that help people in need. When I read this story, I was amazed: first by the gargantuansized cabbage Katie grew and second by the fact that these fruits and vegetables could feed so many people. Plus, this wasnt just donated food; these were fresh, organic veggies straight out of the garden. You cant get much better food than that. My amazement waned with time, and I forgot about Katies Krops until I was wandering through a wonderful park that the locals call Turtle Park but is actually named George C. McGough Nature Park. At the end of the beautiful, scenic nature trail that winds through the majestic woodlands, scrub brush, pine trees and the Intracoastal Waterway, you end up at a park where the young and young-at-heart can play. Right across from this play park is a fenced piece of land divvied up into rectangular plots. Theres a brightly decorated rain barrel, tools and a menagerie of fresh vegetables and foliage. This is the McGough Community Garden. The thing that was the most interesting was that many of the plots were not being used. Suddenly, I remembered Katie. Those unused plots could be used to produce fresh vegetables for people who have no food. Imagine: if one cabbage could feed 275 people, five plots the number that were vacant when I was walking by of cabbages could feed thousands. If youre interested in gardening, want to help feed the hungry and just generally want to help the world become a better place, these community gardens are just the place to start. To find out more about McGoughs vegetable garden, visit bit.ly/11atLzA. If you dont live in Largo, with a quick Google search, you will find that there are multiple community gardens in your area. In fact, Clearwater, Dunedin, and St. Petersburg all have their own community garden clubs. Or build a garden yourself in your own backyard. Once you have the veggies, then what? Go out and find soup kitchens and food banks that are looking for food donations. Pinellas Hope, formerly known as Tent City, in Pinellas Park, St. Vincent de Paul, RCS (Religious Community Services) Food Bank in Clearwater, and FEAST in Palm Harbor are just a few places that are happy to accept fresh vegetable and fruit donations. Whether youre growing them in your backyard or in a community garden, your veggies can feed hundreds if not thousands. All you have to do is feed your gardening hobby.

Tampa Bay Watch is honored to receive this generous support from the Coca-Cola Foundation, said Peter Clark in a press release. Clark is Tampa Bay Watch president. Especially for such an important, high-impact project. The goal of the project at McKay Bay is to establish a communitybased oyster creation project that will construct approximately 2,900 linear feet of new oyster shell communities on the northern shoreline of McKay Bay. McKay Bay is an ecologically important estuary located in the heart of a heavily industrialized area in the city of Tampa that has suffered from many years of impacts from dredge and fill construction, urban and industrial runoff and dredged material disposal. Through the creation of 2,900 linear feet of new oyster communities on the northern shoreline of McKay Bay, many new ecological benefits will occur. These benefits include improved water quality that will lead to the reintroduction of sea grasses in McKay Bay, increased water filtration capacity which will directly benefit the McKay Bay estuary and the new oyster reefs will provide habitat, foraging areas and sanctuary for various species of fish and wildlife that frequent coastal and estuarine shorelines. The CORE project at McKay Bay will have a measurable, positive impact on the health of McKay Bay and, ultimately, the Tampa Bay estuary. For us, water stewardship begins at home in our own facilities, where process improvements and technologies have allowed us to save more than 3 billion gallons of water since 2005, said Jeff Ortmeier, vice president of sales, Central Florida Market Unit, Coca-Cola Refreshments. Community-based oyster projects are a cornerstone of Tampa Bay Watchs restoration programs. These projects encourage oyster growth through the construction and installation of oyster domes and oyster shell bars. Oyster shell reefs prevent erosion of bay islands and fragile coastlines and improve water quality through the natural biological filtration of living oysters. Natural water filters, oysters are also a food source for other bay inhabitants. Increasing oyster populations means a reduction in erosion and better overall water quality while restoring vital hard-bottom habitats in the bay. Tampa Bay Watch is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the charitable and scientific purpose of protecting and restoring the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary encompassing over 400 square miles of open water and 2,300 square miles of highly-developed watershed. Tampa Bay Watch involves more than 10,000 youth and adult volunteers each year in hands on habitat restoration projects. For information, visit www.tampabaywatch.org, or call 867-8166.

Immigration: Is the Melting Pot Boiling Over? will kick off the fall season of The Village Square dinner series sponsored by SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Media sponsors include the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU. The program is planned as Congress grapples with competing views on how to deal with the problems associated with more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country. A comprehensive reform bill passed the Democratically-controlled Senate in June by a wide margin, but the Republican-controlled House is reluctant to take up the Senate bill. Many Republicans favor a piecemeal approach, first securing the nations borders, then addressing the problem of how to deal with the millions of undocumented immigrants already here. A distinguished panel will discuss the pros and cons of the two approaches to resolving the debate. They include: Tim Curtis, chairman of the Tampa 912 Project, representing the anti-immigration point of view Edwin Enciso, coordinator for Comprehensive Immigration Reform Now, based in Tampa, representing the pro-immigration point of view Tara Newsom, associate professor of social and behavioral sciences, St. Petersburg College. The moderator will be Rob Lorei, news and public affairs director of WMNF radio and host of the weekly news review show on WEDU-TV Florida This Week. The Village Square is a forum for nonpartisan debate of key state and national issues. Reservations for this dinner event are required by Friday, Sept. 13. They may be made online at www.spcollege.edu/survey/13844 or by mail: Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733.

By TOM GERMONDLARGO Pinellas School Superintendent Michael Grego said Aug. 29 that student testing is the challenging part of new state educational standards that are under fire. Grego was speaking at a Pinellas Education Foundation event at the foundations headquarters on Starkey Road. We need to be concerned, Grego said. We cannot test ourselves to excellence. Grego and other panel members gave their views on Common Core standards, which were established by the state in 2010 for English language arts and mathematics. Florida is in a group of 19 states called the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. In the groups plan, Florida students would take PARCC assessments in place of the FCAT by the 2014-2015 school year. Grego said he is a champion of accountability but was skeptical of the 20 days of assessments that PARCC had initially proposed, saying it equates to a full month of assessments on the school calendar. So you are going to take too short of a calendar which is 10 months and really should be 11, and take it down to nine , he said. He also wants to make sure that students are being tested for the subject content and not the ability to maneuver through a computer test. Is the student knowledgeable about mathematics or is he knowledge about solving a math problem on a computer? Two different things, Grego said. Grego, who was appointed superintendent in September 2012 and has held several administrative positions in his 28-year career, received applause from the audience of civic and school leaders as he made his final remarks on the issue. Florida needs a sound assessment that works, that is balanced with instruction as we just cant keep testing ourselves to some kind of glorified state. Gus Bilirakis, a Republican U.S. representative of Palm Harbor, also had some concerns about Common Core standards and said he would listen to local school officials. Im worried about too much testing now, he said. He said that Common Core is not a national mandate, and Congress passed legislation to make sure the federal government does not force this on our states. Regarding Common Core as a whole, State Rep. Larry Ahern, RSeminole, said he thinks the bottom line for Florida is that the standards described are what the student should know or learn. Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford said lets stop and take a longer look at how Florida goes about writing its own set of standards. Again, thats our prerogative. Theres been no federal mandate for that, he said. Gaetz and Weatherford have recommended that the state dont participate in PARCCs testing plan that is in conjunction with the new Common Core State Standards. School Board chairwoman Carol Cook said the district has to reach the standards set by the state, and the board and superintendent will determine curriculum. School Board members had a lot of training in Common Core over the summer, she said. So you as citizens have the opportunity to have input through your school board members as well as the employees of the school district will have an opportunities to have input. And how we do it and what we choose as far as books and curriculum, that is still a local decision, Cook said. Common Core internationally benchmarked standards define what students in kindergarten through 12th grade should know in English language arts and mathematics. The standards include changes in how teachers teach to help children succeed in the areas that matter most, the school districts website says.Superintendent concerned about student testing plansAbove, Sandra Janvrin, left, a first-year student at SPCSeminole, stops to speak with Tori Hunter, a student support adviser in Financial Aid Services.

PETE BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a single motorcycle crash in St. Pete Beach. According to the sheriffs report, the crash occurred about 11:21 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, on Blind Pass Road near 76th Avenue. Deputies said the driver of a 2000 Harley-Davidson, Earl W. Pruitt Sr., 60, of Pinellas Park exited a nearby parking lot and pulled onto Blind Pass Road and then began to drive northbound in the southbound lanes. When attempting to change lanes, Pruitt hit the median and was thrown from the motorcycle. He was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Pruitt was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. No other vehicles were involved. Deputies said it is not known if alcohol was a factor.Pinellas Park man arrested for child abusePINELLAS PARK A Pinellas Park man was arrested Aug. 28 and charged with one count of aggravated child abuse against a 6-month-old female. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, the incident occurred Aug. 15 at a private residence in St. Petersburg. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit said Derek Lee Adams, 24, was changing the childs diaper when he became frustrated and began to squeeze the victims legs. He applied excessive pressure and pushed down on the victims legs causing fractures below both knees. The child was in Adams care at the time the injuries occurred and were discovered when the mother took the child to the hospital due to her being fussy, the report said. During an interview with detectives on Aug. 18, Adams allegedly admitted to the allegations. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail and bond was set at $50,000.Man arrested after deputy-involved shootingLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are investigating a deputy-involved shooting that occurred about 12:12 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, in Largo. According to detectives, Deputy Ethan Taylor was on routine patrol when he ran the tag of a gray 1994 Acura. The vehicle came back as a stolen vehicle reported out of St. Petersburg Police Departments jurisdiction. Taylor requested backup and began to follow the vehicle. The suspects vehicle pulled into a gas station located on the corner of 142nd Avenue North and S. Belcher Road. The suspect then exited the vehicle, went into the gas station and then returned to his vehicle to pump gas. Taylor and Deputy Lorie Fagan entered the gas station parking lot and began to approach the suspect near the gas pumps. The suspect noticed the deputies approaching him and put his vehicle in reverse. He then accelerated the gas, causing his vehicle to hit the unmarked car driven by Fagan. The suspect then put the car in drive and attempted to exit the parking lot. Out of concern for officer safety and the safety of those in the area, Taylor began to fire shots at the suspects vehicle, the sheriffs report said. The suspects vehicle then hit the curb and drove into a retention pond where it came to a stop. The suspect, Bryant Collins, 32, of Clearwater was taken into custody and transported to the Pinellas County Jail where he was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and driving while license was suspended/revoked. No injuries were reported. Deputies Taylor, 47, and Fagan, 52, are on routine paid administrative leave. Taylor has been employed with the Sheriffs Office since June 1997 and Fagan since December 1986. St. Petersburg police are investigating the stolen vehicle.Jail drug smuggling operation bustedCLEARWATER A Trinity woman was arrested Aug. 19 after she concealed suboxone strips behind stamps on envelopes and mailed them to two inmates at the Pinellas County Jail. The inmates in turn distributed and sold the controlled substance to other Pinellas County Jail inmates. Since the investigation began on Aug. 1, 2013, deputies intercepted a total of 11 pieces of mail containing the opiate. Kaitlyn Pergola, 29, was charged with two counts of introducing/possession of contraband into a county detention facility. Bond was set at $10,000. She also is being held without bond on charges of violation of probation on doctor shopping charges. Pergolas boyfriend, Michael David Gavin, 29, was arrested for introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility. He was transferred to Jefferson County Jail on Aug. 1 on burglary and grand theft charges. Gavins cellmate, Jermonte Russell Rushing, 30, of St. Petersburg also was arrested for introduction/possession of contraband into a county detention facility. He was last booked into the Pinellas County Jail on March 7 on a charge of carjacking without a weapon. Bond was set at $50,000. According to the sheriffs report, on Aug. 1, Gavin was being prepared for transport and transfer to the Jefferson County Jail. Investigators said detention deputies began to grow suspicious when Gavin began to ask every deputy and jail employee he saw or passed to help him get his mail. Mailroom clerks were asked to examine Gavins mail more closely. Four pieces of stamped mail were initially found addressed to Gavin and closer examination of the pieces revealed small square pieces of orange paper concealed behind each of the stamps. The contents of the envelopes were provided to the inmate for his transport to Jefferson County; and detectives retained the envelope and began their investigation to identify the substance behind the stamps. Through their subsequent investigation, detectives discovered additional pieces of mail addressed to Gavin; as well as other pieces of mail addressed to Rushing, which had the same type of orange paper concealed behind the stamps and appeared to have similar handwriting to the letters addressed to Gavin. Research and testing of the orange paper determined the substance to be suboxone or heroin in a breath strip. Detectives further described the substance to be an opiate in the form of a sublingual film. The investigation further revealed that Gavin recruited his cell mate Rushing to have the mail sent to him in exchange for payment; and that the two sold and distributed the contraband to other inmates at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say that each stamp was sold for $20; and that each stamp was five dosage units if cut into five individual strips. Through their investigation, detectives were able to identify Pergola as the source of supply of suboxone to Gavin and Rushing. Detectives said she used two fictitious return addresses that were later connected to her. During her interview with detectives Aug. 19, Pergola allegedly admitted to the crime. She was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Two adults use child to help them stealCLEARWATER St. Petersburg police arrested a man and woman Aug. 21 wanted in connection with the theft of purses from Hooters in Clearwater. Clearwater police released videos Aug. 20, showing the man and woman stealing items aided by a young child perhaps a 10-yearold boy. One video showed the man taking items, passing them to the child, who deposited them inside a cart being pushed by the woman. The second video showed the adults waiting while the child stole purses from a back room at Hooters. The next day, Clearwater Police issued a thank you to the public, media and the St. Petersburg Police Department for their assistance in finding the couple. The two Kissimmee residents were arrested in a bowling alley in St. Petersburg. Their son and 2-year-old daughter were handed over to the Department of Children and Families. Clearwater police said an anonymous tipster called St. Petersburg police after they saw the couples images on television. Julio Angel Torres, 31, of Kissimmee, was charged with two counts of grand theft, neglect of a child, burglary of an unoccupied structure and fraudulent use of a credit card. Bond was set at $25,150. He also is being held without bail on a warrant from Orange County for a charge of grand theft while on probation. Janet Soto, 37, also of Kissimmee was charged with two counts of grand theft, burglary of an unoccupied structure, fraudulent use of a credit card and neglect of a child. Bond was set at $30,150.

Pinellas approves protection for gender identity rights By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Despite a wall of opposition, the Pinellas County Commission added protection from discrimination for gender identity Aug. 20 via an amendment to its Human Rights code. Commissioners listened to those for and against the amendment for nearly three hours before discussing the matter amongst themselves. In the end, the vote was 6-1 to approve. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. Chapter 70 of Pinellas Countys codes relating to human relations gives protection against discrimination for race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, familial status, pregnancy, gender, sexual orientation, sexual harassment, age, disability and now gender identity as well. The countys Office of Human Rights is responsible to protect all citizens from discrimination in the areas of fair housing, employment, public accommodations and government programs and assistance. The amendment prohibiting discrimination due to gender identity and gender expression applies in three of those areas: fair housing, employment and public accommodations. Paul Valenti, director of the Human Rights Office, said 17 states have already passed laws prohibiting discrimination based on a persons gender identify. Florida is not one of those states; however, several of its counties and municipalities have such protections, including Gulfport and Dunedin in Pinellas County. Legislation is pending in the U.S. Senate. Roche made it clear that he was not voting against the amendment because he did not believe discrimination should be prohibited. He is unhappy with changes to the ordinance that redefine gender. He prefers providing the protections using different words. Supporters of the amendment were given first chance at the podium to tell commissioners why they should approve it. Susan McGrath, president of the Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County, and other members of that organization, pointed to a missed opportunity in 2008 when the commission voted against adding protection for gender identity to the human rights code. We support the Ts (transgendered) in our community and applaud your efforts today, she said. She said approving the amendment would create greater equality and inclusiveness. Katee Tully, Equality Florida board member and member of the St. Petersburg Chamber, said both organizations supported the amendment, which she called an appropriate right for everyone. Andrew Santino, a transgendered man, and his wife Sasha, who are business owners in St. Petersburg, also asked for the commissions support to stop discrimination because people dont fit. Not all can accept people who look different, he said. He said people who identify with a gender other than the one they were born become homeless and unemployed simply because of who they are. His wife told commissioners that before she met her husband she didnt even know what transgendered was. She talked about rights for human beings. Its disturbing that people are discriminated against for what they are and that they dont fit, she said. Several women talked about being bullied and being pushed out of restrooms because they dont like to wear dresses and high heels. The underlying theme was a desire to be protected from discrimination. Those opposing the amendment outnumbered supporters about two to one, and they were by far more vocal. One woman traveled from Tampa to speak against the change. They objected to exemptions in the law for religious organizations and the school district. They objected because the amendment would give protections not available under state or federal law. They objected to the codes definition of gender, saying it was different from the one found in the dictionary or medical books. Some cited Biblical scripture. Local pastors tried to persuade commissioners to vote no. People said it was wrong to change the gender a person is born with, as that was strictly an act of God. They said a persons gender should be decided by fact not feelings. A few said gender identity was a mental disorder. Others warned that the amendment would open the door to lawsuits with more than one person saying it would open Pandoras Box. They said businesses would leave the county due to fear of lawsuits. Some said creating protection for a small sub-class of people created more victims. Regina Brown, speaking for herself and four others, talked about reverse discrimination and the hate she has been shown due to her opposition. Brown said she has been called names because she opposes same-sex marriage. She pointed out that just because she opposes the amendment doesnt mean she approves of discrimination. Brown is against more government regulation. She said government should not step in to protect people who are unhappy with their assigned sex. I used to be so skinny and people made fun of me, she said. Are you going to put in your ordinance that people cant call me skinny and point at me and make me cry? However, the most pressing concern of most of the objectors was about the restroom. I dont want a man who because of his gender identity has become a female to use the same restroom that I do, said Dorothy Bonds of Palm Harbor. Several objectors talked about voyeurism and sexual abuse. Nancy Davis of Seminole said she didnt want to go to the shower in the gym and find it occupied by men and women. Im very concerned, she said. I have certain values. She said she had a right to her privacy. Others talked about the danger to young children who might encounter a pedophile posing as a transgendered person. They were afraid providing protections for people expressing themselves as a different gender would be confusing to children and cause problems. Several people said the amendment would not be needed at all if people would just be kind to one another. They pointed out that the commission could not require people to be kind to each other. You cant legislate against discrimination, said Rex Brown of Largo. I was taught to love everyone and I think you should. Commissioner Charlie Justice made the motion for approval as soon as the public was done speaking. He said while he understood and empathized with the speakers, it was possible to legislate against discrimination, although it was not possible to legislate what is in peoples hearts and minds. But we can set a policy to not discriminate against a group of people whether it is 2 percent, 20 percent or 40 percent. He referred to statements by the public to the right of life, liberty and Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPaul Valenti, director of Pinellas County Human Rights Office, answers questions about an amendment to the human rights code that adds protection from discrimination for gender identity during an Aug. 20 public hearing.

He said many had talked about faith, which is what he uses as his moral compass. He said his faith was the rock I am standing upon to vote in favor of this tonight. In an interview after the meeting, Valenti clarified which public restrooms would be covered under the definition of public accommodation, including public lodging, motels and hotels; restaurants, eateries, places where food is sold and ate on premises; businesses where drinks alcoholic and nonalcoholic -are sold and consumed on premises. In addition, the law applies to establishments that sell goods and services; clinics and hospitals; bathhouses and swimming pools; entertainment and sports venues; all public places on land or water essentially most places of public business. A complete list is provided in the code. The amendment does not apply to private clubs. Valenti said the amendment in no way changes the law to allow improper behavior in public restrooms, including touching or display of genitalia, which was a fear of a few of the female speakers at the Aug. 20 meeting. Commissioner Janet Long received several emails asking her how as a parent she could support the amendment. I have children and grandchildren, Long said. It is not good public policy to make decisions based on fear. She said she too uses her faith as a moral compass to make decisions. Im very proud to support this ordinance tonight, Long said. Ive labored over this beyond, Roche said. Ive talked to people all over this county. In the end, he voted against the amendment due to the way the language was changed in the ordinance. I believe people who are transgendered should not be discriminated against and those who do that should be punished swiftly and publicly, he said. I dont have the authority to give or take away a right. It is not our role to redefine a word. He preferred leaving the ordinance as it was and adding the term transgender with a definition. He said just as same-sex marriage, gender identity rights was a state and federal issue that should be not be decided on by local jurisdictions. Commission Chair Ken Welch said it was within the commissions responsibility to protect the minority and to protect all people, including the gay and lesbian people in the community. Other places have this and there have been nightmare scenarios, he said. Change is never easy, said Commissioner John Morroni. He talked about the changes made in the county over the past 100 years. Blacks were kept out of the bathrooms. We had black and white restrooms, he said. Not long ago, women werent allowed to vote, but now they can. The seven of us think a lot about how we vote. It affects us. We want to listen to you, then make our decisions. But we may not always agree. Commissioner Karen Seel said it would be nice if we could all live by the Golden Rule, treat others as we wish to be treated. People tonight said, be nice and kind to each other, we cant legislate that, she said. This is trying to cover all human beings in the county. Many of our lives are dictated by the circumstances of our birth. She said people most likely would continue to use the restroom of their choice, as they do today. She said the amendment could help promote more use of unisex restrooms. Pass on the Golden Rule. Live it every day, Seel said.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERKatee Tully, Equality Florida board member and member of the St. Petersburg Chamber, tells commissioners Aug. 20 why passing the amendment to the human rights ordinance is the right thing to do.

Join our Team For The Busy SeasonStylist Needed! 5,500 old booksUnable to resist the discovery, retired bookseller takes one last business venture:The Scribes Perch in Largo By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO By all rights and sense of reason, Jimmy Weyant should never had bought the dozens of boxes of hardback books currently stacked in the back of his new store space in Largo. This he admits freely. Weyant is retired. He suffers from multiple sclerosis and walks with a cane. He had no space for the books in the mobile home where he lives. The Vietnam veteran lost his last used book business in a divorce and was content to let it end there. But the collection a fellow seller at the Mustang Flea Market offered was enticing: about 5,500 books, many of them hardback, and all of them in reported good condition. Still, Weyant said he checked out the collection out of a courtesy. Frankly, I didnt go in thinking it would be anything, he said. On the way to her house, I mused Id be seeing broken sets of encyclopedias, Readers Digest condensed, etc. He was wrong. The woman, who Weyant would not name, once was a very active collector who has very, very good taste, he said. The books were mostly nonfiction titles on interesting topics and in good shape. He checked out the books on three different occasions, just to make sure he wasnt about to make a mistake Every time, I was more impressed, he said. He decided he couldnt resist. It took a couple of months to negotiate the deal when he finally made up his mind. He began renting out a business space in mid-July and moved all the boxes of books to a back room. Its like Christmas, every time I open a new box, he said. He opened too many boxes, faster than he can process and sort them, he said. Its a weakness. Weeks into the project, the 65-year-old bearded book guru sat on a rolling chair, his legs crossed in a yoga pose, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of books. Many of the books have slips of paper stuck between their pages. Those are ones hes ready to list online, just as soon as he figures out some technical issues with the website hes working with, he said. Theyll go on his shelves too, and sell in-person for half the listed price. The vast majority of the books are still in their boxes. Weyants eyes, peering bright blue over reading glasses, were enlivened rather than overwhelmed by the scope of his task. His tastes are very specific. If it aint a book or a bookend, Im not interested, he admitted. His new business, named The Scribes Perch, is an updated version of a successful used bookstore and rare book auction operation he ran in Rhode Island for more than 10 years. Hes been in the business for a long time. But Weyant said he didnt read a book of his own volition until he was drafted into the Army. While he was stationed in Vietnam, his passion for books sparked after realized that you couldnt go down and get drunk every night. Instead, the company clerk, who was a reader, got him interested in the books supplied by the Red Cross. It was wonderful when a box of books came because we got first pickings, Weyant said. After he was discharged, he lived in Australia, working as a traveling salesman for three years. He returned to get an education through the G.I. Bill, enrolling in Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. My granddad passed away and left me a barrel of money, he explained. At that stage, I thought, Well gee, Id rather not do anything but this. So I opened my store. He opened The Scribes Perchs predecessor in 1984, in Newport, R.I. The business started out as a simple used bookstore. But Weyant had a brilliant idea: why not advertise the business and an associated 800 number as a used book search service in major newspapers in other parts of the country? The idea was too quickly a success. My phone wouldnt stop ringing, Weyant said. We couldnt keep up. He later used the skills he had learned as a traveling salesman to become a used book dealer, visiting bookstores within a 1,500-mile circuit and collecting rare books the owners were sick of looking at. He then sold the books on their behalf in an auction. His niche operation began to grow a solid reputation and was very successful, he said. But all that fell apart in the divorce, he said. Weyant has been a casual seller since moving to Florida. Sometimes he helps nonprofit thrift stores sort through their book collection. It takes a long time, but he has the expertise to help them earn money off books, he said. For his own business, he doesnt keep bestsellers or mass-market paperbacks on his shelves, nothing that hasnt been around for a while. If youre still talking about it 50 years later, OK, I want it on my shelf, he said. He can provide or find books on anything people have a passion for: growing a perfect rose or building a boat from scratch, he said. As shopkeeper, his job is to keep interesting titles on the shelves and keep his customers spouses occupied with conversation while the bibliophile gets lost searching for the perfect book. Weyant expects that about 40 percent of the books he has will be listed online and sold in his store. The books have to be valued at least $12 to be worth his time. All others he will sell for cheap in the parking lot in front of his store on the weekends. Any not sold in those yard sales will be donated to charities. By sorting out the chaff in this way, Weyant will slowly go through all the boxes of books. Every week, the sale in front of his store will be a new collection, he said. The books on his shelves will be constantly changing. It will take at least a year to go through his new collection, but Weyant doesnt expect his business to be a long-term venture. Im too old to expand, he said. Im too old to do this. But the business is a passion he hasnt been able to quit. I love selling books. I love talking books. I love people who read books, he said. For now, The Scribes Perch is a hidden niche, quite off the beaten path and without a typical storefront, located in suite 200 of the American Business Center, at 8340 Ulmerton Road in Largo. But Weyant thinks that will change. Once bibliophiles find me, theyre going to be delighted, he said. Email him at kingweyant1@ yahoo.com.Photo by JULIANA A.

Exp. 9-30-13 Dolphin 2013 baby season ends on a high noteLife at sea does not play out for our benefit, but it is to our benefit to watch it play out. This summers 2013 birth season of the Johns Pass bottlenose dolphins has played out like an Alfred Hitchcock movie, at least for those of us who monitor the health and well-being of the local dolphin community. The suspense has been nothing like the terrible dolphin die-off on the east coast of Florida, however. We have much to celebrate, though only one newborn bottlenose dolphin has appeared each month between April and July, two of whom perished. The lack of newborns was eased this week with the appearance of two new babies at the end of August, delivered on par with Hitchcock-like suspense.Eight dolphin subgroups recently assembled near a tidy little causeway and included all of the calves born to local moms this year, some calves from previous years and the two new bonus babies. Dolphin-like, the best action was a combination of fantastic and frustrating. The fantastic part was watching Sticks brand-new baby attempt its first hours of life. So new that its dorsal fin had not quite stiffened and its baby mouth still bore the traces of mammalian whiskers that would vanish that day, it revealed one of the first challenges of learning to swim like a dolphin. This challenge involved the glistening newborns tailstock, which apparently has a mind of its own, or rather a musculature of its own. The dolphin tailstock is the back half of the dolphins body that serves as the propeller that pushes the dolphin forward via up-anddown strokes (in contrast, fish and shark propellers move side-toside). This biological propeller is fitted with an efficient muscular mechanism that conserves energy: A dolphin has to create the down stroke through muscular effort but the up stroke is accomplished with a spring-like mechanism that bounces the tailstock up and ready for the next down stroke. This mechanism was amusingly obvious as Sticks new baby jiggled clumsily to the surface. Perhaps the down stroke is instinctive because the newborn surfaced alongside Sticks measured strokes with fair success. But the newborn was clearly thrown off, literally, by the up stroke.Every time it surfaced at Sticks side, its miniature tailstock seemed to bounce up without restraint, pitching the tiny shiny baby forward uncontrollably into a headlong smash landing on its chin, the fresh new tailstock trailing innocently behind in its best ready-for-thedown-stroke position. Sticks little nursery group included two other moms but also one of our local bull giants, Schnoz. For years, Schnoz gender was a mystery due in part to his habit of swimming with a group of mom dolphins with newborns like this. This is unusual bull behavior; bulls are usually seen with moms when the calf is older. The frustrating action was the other mom with a tiny shiny newborn. She was frustrating because, with a second larger dolphin nearby, she moved away from us so concertedly that we were only able to see her from behind. This meant that the vital dorsal fin pattern we use to identify individual dolphins was never clearly visible. After a handful of such surfaces, we backed off to avoid harassing her. There are two possibilities as to the identity of the new mom, but a Hitchcocklike suspense continues until that part of the movie unfolds. There were two other little dramas with our slightly older calves of the season. One drama was striking. Front Slashs 6-week-old baby was busy with behavior associated with the tail stage. The tail stage is characterized by a tiny dolphin that has acquired a modicum of control over its tail and fluke movements and is now better able to move smoothly between water and air for breathing. But the baby in the tail stage is now subject to sudden accelerations; as if its propeller operates at will, abruptly thrusting the little one forward from moms side in an uncontrolled spurt that sometimes pitches the baby into a headstand or forward somersault! The other drama was melodramatic. It involved first-time mom Sharkeys calf. Born by the Memorial Day weekend, it is our oldest local calf. Now that it is 3 months old, it is old enough to get a name. But it was far too young and unlearned to be embroiled in an enthusiastic but disorderly social exchange between three teens and big bull Xiphos. This exchange was so vigorous that all you saw with lots of splashing, punctuated by tauntingly sporadic glimpses of a tiny baby, which we finally figured out was Sharkeys calf. Sharkey haunted the sidelines, as many moms do when their baby is caught up with other dolphins. Ultimately, we glimpsed Sharkey swimming away with her baby while the wild splashing continued. The suspense about whether the calf is OK continues until that part of the movie unfolds. Life at sea play does not play out for our benefit, but knowing the stages of growth and development in young lives and the entire dolphin community is ecologically essential.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A tradition in your neighborhood.Organization reports real estate statisticsThe Pinellas County Realtor Organization recently reported statistics for July 2013. According to the accompanying press release, the summer months are typically a slow time in the market but market activity has remained steady. The report indicates that a slow climb in housing prices is expected in future months due to the following conditions: Low inventory 4.4 months supply of inventory for single-family homes and 4.9 months supply of inventory for condo/townhomes Cash sales for single-family homes dropped slightly but is a positive increase from last year Cash sales for condo/townhomes increased slightly and is a positive increase from last year New listings for single-family homes continue to increase slowly month over month New listings for condo/townhomes has increased each month since May of 2013 Increase in traditional closed sales by 24.9 percent for single-family homes and 46.1 percent for condo/townhomes. The median days on market decreased 18.5 percent for single-family homes and 10.4 percent for condo/townhomes. The absorption rate is at 36 percent for single-family homes and 25.3 percent for condo/townhomes. According to the organization, these numbers are reflective of a market with low inventory and an increased number of buyers. The organization explains that recent changes to FHA requirements may bring additional buyers to the market increasing the demand for housing even further.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, September 5, 2013When public schoolsopened earlier thismonth, classroomsupply cabinets were well stocked. It wasnt because of some great windfall of tax dollars. Rather, it was the willingness of teachers and parents to dig deeper into their own pockets for the common good general classroom supplies. Hand sanitizers, tissue boxes, and paper towels, for example, along with the usual stash of crayons, pencils, pens and paper fill these cabinets. Its a given that classroom supplies will be fronted by teachers and the parents. A nationwide survey of 800 teachers for the National School Supply and Equipment Association (www.nssea.org) found that teachers annually spend $1.6 billion of their own money on classroom supplies. On average, teachers said they spent $485 of their own money on school supplies, instructional materials and other classroom materials during the 2012-2013 school year. Ten percent said they annually spend $1,000 or more out of their own pockets. Another finding was that 25 percent of teachers surveyed required parents to purchase general classroom supplies but that was down from 47 percent surveyed in recent years. There did not seem to be an explanation of the drop. Since 1998, Florida has allocated a public school teacher stipend for classroom supplies and materials. This year, the Florida Teachers Classroom Supply Assistance Program will provide up to $250 per teacher. Gov. Rick Scott initiated a debit card for teachers for that amount to ease the process. But the Tampa Bay Times reported last week that only seven districts out of 67 had enrolled Miami-Dade, Orange, Hamilton, Hendry, Jefferson, Lafayette and Levy. But thats not to say other districts teachers wont see the money. Most districts for years have provided the state funding directly to teachers by check. Districts also are concerned that the state debit system doesnt take effect until late September, six weeks after most schools opened. We look for improvements in the system next year. Community response to the classroom supply dilemma is growing. Civic groups and businesses organize drives for students in need and teachers. Tax dollars will only stretch so far.Margo C. Pope is a former opinion editor of The St. Augustine Record. In my next life I hope I can be a songwriter. I can think of few achievements more satisfying than to compose the lyrics of a beautiful song that captures love, courage, heartbreak, sweet memories, struggle, regret, revenge, faith or other emotions. I cant recite more than a few lines of the Gettysburg Address or Dr. Kings I Have a Dream speech. But I can give you every word of This Land Is Your Land, Dont Fence Me In and dozens maybe hundreds of other popular songs. I bet that you can, too. How do song lyrics get so deeply embedded in our brains? Repetition, probably. In the cradle we are treated to lullabies. By age 3 were exposed to nursery rhymes. Unless were hearing-impaired or living in a mine shaft, at every stage of our lives the songs keep coming at us from radios, TV, iPods, computers, movies, our own children. The best songs, and some of the worst ones, will be repeated so often in an average lifetime that the words and melodies become pinned to the corkboards of our minds. The first songs I can recall were The Way You Look Tonight and The Music Goes Round and Round. Our nations entry into WWII brought Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition and Der Fuehrers Face. I entered my teens in the company of Sinatra, Como and Nat Cole. I must confess that after the advent of rock music in the 1950s I memorized many fewer lyrics. Today Im an illiterate when the conversation turns to rap, hip hop and other noise-ridden varieties of music. For an intriguing exercise, try listing 20 or so events of your own personal life, and then name the pop hits that were current at that time. It shouldnt be hard to do. I go into nostalgic shock each time I hear Jo Stafford sing You Belong to Me, at the top of the charts in September 1952, when I entered college and life was greener than its ever been for me, before or since. Can you name the tune thats triggered in your mind when you remember the first time you kissed your true love? Or the love that got away? Im a sucker for love songs with happy endings. Maybe some day the Pew Research Center will launch a study to determine how many love songs have a happy theme vs. those that deal with romances that ended badly. Among the upbeat titles might be Youd Be So Nice to Come Home To, When Your Hair Has Turned to Silver, Till There Was You, Our Love Is Here to Stay, Just in Time, and Long Ago and Far Away. The sad songs might include Are You Lonesome Tonight?, I Cried for You, Autumn Leaves, Dont Get Around Much Any More, and one of the most poignant tunes in all of song-writing history, Yesterday. Legend has it that Paul McCartney produced that song in about 10 minutes. Examples like that pretty well demolish the notion that great works of art must, or should, be the product of years of suffering. Other countries and cultures have rich histories of songwriting and memorable ballads, but offhand I cant name any other nation that has churned out the volume of popular music that the USA has. A history of America could be written based on the songs that reflected the struggles, triumphs, madnesses and enthusiasms of our country and its people. Although the USA has steadily become more citified, I recently heard that countrywestern songs are the music category most requested and played on American radio stations. Despite my lifelong admiration for many music performers, Ive had personal contact with only two people in the music business. One was the late Helen OConnell, who sang with the Jimmy Dorsey band and alongside Bob Eberle during the 1940s. My wife had known Helen in Los Angeles, and when Helen performed in the Tampa-Orlando region in the s and s we would sometimes hook up with her for a visit. My other musical acquaintance was my Bucknell University fraternity brother Bruce Lundvall, whose skill at discovering and developing talent led him to become the head of the prestigious Blue Note label. In recent years Bruce has lamented the radical changes in the music industry. People used to pay cash for song records and take them home to play. In todays digital era, you can just switch on a radio or computer and download songs, free of charge. Pop music has changed in other ways. Too often, dignified performance has given way to tawdry exhibitionism. Can you picture Ella Fitzgerald or Rosemary Clooney displaying their pudenda the way Miley Cyrus did a week or two ago at the video music awards? I cant, and I dont want to. Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.CNNs Dr. Sanjay Gupta admitted earlier this month that he had been wrong in his opposition to medical marijuana during the rollout for his documentary Weed. Gupta reported on research that demonstrated the proven benefits of marijuana in treating neuropathic pain. Medical marijuana was the only drug that helped a 5-year-old girl with Dravet syndrome live without constant seizures. It calmed the constant hiccupping of a 19-year-old. Israelis use it to treat Parkinsons disease and other ailments. Gupta took on the federal governments classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which has no accepted medical use but has a high potential for abuse. (Heroin also is a Schedule I drug. Methamphetamine is Schedule II.) Gupta now believes that classification is an outrage. The doctor didnt say marijuana is all good. He cited research that found that regular use by teens can lead to a permanent decrease in IQ. But Gupta could find no documented case of a death from a marijuana overdose, whereas someone dies every 19 minutes from a prescription-drug overdose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 80,000 Americans die each year from excessive alcohol use. Last week, Guptas sentiments were echoed on the right when columnist Charles Krauthammer, a former psychiatrist, told Fox News that alcohol is much more harmful than marijuana. Quote Krauthammer: If I were starting a society from scratch and had to choose the intoxicant, I would outlaw alcohol and Id allow marijuana. (Side note: But seeing as he cant reset the world, Krauthammer said he wouldnt legalize pot.) Guptas about-face might well signal a sea change in how this country looks at marijuana. Gupta told CNNs Erin Burnett that he used to look at medical marijuana advocates as malingerers who are just looking to get high. But he came to see that cannabis not only helps severely ill people but also averts the dangerous side effects of more potent pharmaceuticals. Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy announced Monday that his committee will hold a hearing Sept. 10 about the correct federal response to state laws legalizing the use of medical marijuana and, in the cases of Washington and Colorado, recreational use of marijuana. Is President Barack Obama paying attention? Reporter Jessica Yellin asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest last week whether the administration was considering changing marijuanas Schedule I designation. Earnest responded with a long-winded no. Before the American Bar Association recently, Attorney General Eric Holder delivered a speech that was supposed to signal big changes in the administrations approach to nonviolent drug offenders. But he didnt mention marijuana enforcement, even though his Department of Justice has waged a ruthless war against medical marijuana dispensaries. Federal prosecutors have not only sent registered California dispensary operators to prison but has also gone after their landlords, their bankers and contractors. Listen to Gupta and Krauthammer and its fair to surmise that marijuana is the least harmful of all controlled substances. Its less toxic than alcohol, which is legal. Its less lethal than prescription drugs. So why is Washington still waging a war on weed?Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders As I See ItMargo Pope Public helps keep classroom supply cabinets stockedLackeys of big insuranceE d i t o r : News reports say Citizens insurance will raise rates again? This despite the fact that Citizens already charges three times the national average for insurance. It is now time to put an end to Citizens price gouging by constitutional amendment. If the state Legislature actually represented the people of Florida, overcharging to the level of extortion by Citizens would have been stopped years ago. However, as everyone knows our state legislators are nothing but lackeys for big insurance and the price gouging by Citizens will continue. It therefore looks like the only way for the hurricane lashed property owners of this state to have reasonable insurance rates is a constitutional amendment that would not allow Citizens to ever charge more than the national average for insurance.

Too often, dignified performance has given way to tawdry exhibitionism. Other viewsFrom Florida newspapers opinion pagesThe Lakeland LedgerFlorida sinkholes: Lawmakers act against residentsFlorida has more sinkholes than anyplace in the country, so residents typically treat them like the states other inconveniences of nature, such as hurricanes and alligators we learn to live with them. But the sinkhole that opened near Clermont this month and swallowed a condo resort building should alarm state and local officials into getting serious about addressing what is a growing threat to homes and businesses, not to mention Floridians pocketbooks.The Miami HeraldPunish Syria for crossing red lineThe United States should not waste time seeking U.N. support for a retaliatory strike. It would be blocked by Russia. Forming a coalition with Britain, France and other countries that have condemned Syrias government would amply demonstrate international resolve. Deepening American involvement in yet another Middle East conflict goes against President Obamas instincts and ours. Unemployment should be his principal focus. But events have a way of intruding on presidential agendas. In this instance, its unavoidable. Syrias brazen disregard for humanitarian norms cannot go unanswered.Florida TodayAiling vets wait a national disgraceSince 2001, the government has trained, equipped and deployed more than 2.5 million men and women to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan. But those who came home with brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder or other serious afflictions have too often found that the militarys efficiency ended abruptly when they filed a disability claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans filing a new disability claim can wait a year or more to get an answer from the VA, potentially costing them thousands of dollars a month in disability payments, even as they get VA medical treatment.

All humans have a personal relationship with stress, but most of us dont understand how prolonged stress can damage our bodies to the point of death. Do you remember watching Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom on TV when you were a kid? Almost every episode involved some critter getting into trouble and ultimately facing the fight of their life or running like the dickens to get away. When the deer escaped, her stress response shut down. Humans are designed with the same kind of fight or flight system, which was meant to be a momentary event until we are out of harms way. Its not meant for the long haul. Our bodies go through amazing changes when we are in tremendous fear. The blood pressure goes up, while our immune system goes down, the good cholesterol is decreased while the bad goes up and we get a power packed surge of adrenaline that gives us the feeling we can handle anything. The problem I am seeing more often is that many of us cant seem to find our off switch, and we have a strong tendency to switch on our fight or flight system for only psychological reasons. Thinking about global warming, job security, traffic, politics, impressing other people, family problems and death, we turn on the same stress response. The important difference is that were not doing it for real physical reasons and were doing it non-stop. When we dont turn off our stress reaction, we unwittingly do harm by overexposing ourselves to hormones that are only meant to kick in when we are in dire straits. Thats one of the reasons why so many Americans have fuzzy brain, weight gain, heart and stomach problems and suffer from anxiety and depression. So, if we witness a small child running toward traffic, this beautifully designed alert system will kick into high gear and move us into taking fast action now! The not-so-wonderful thing is that a large percentage of illnesses are caused by mental and emotional stress, and we, as a society, are no longer experiencing fearful thoughts every now and then. Many of us are getting sicker and sicker because we are living in constant fear and struggling with uncontrollable worry and doubt. Were wearing ourselves out. I recently visited the National Institute of Mental Health website where I read that Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in America. In essence, 19 million people suffer from mental illnesses that involve irrational fear responses. These disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Most stress, anxiety and depression is caused by imaginary challenges or by falsely believing that we have no choice or possibility to succeed or win, to be healed or be financially independent or create and keep private or professional relationships. Did you know that most healthy successful, strong people do not have fewer challenges in life? They simply have learned how to deal with the daily tasks and challenges more effectively, so they dont even create stress. If you talk with highly successful folks, many will tell you that they actually enjoy overcoming challenges and difficult tasks in life and to do this on a daily basis. You may want to try some of these ideas: Our thoughts can create illness and if they are strong enough to make us sick, then they are strong enough to make us healthy. Pay attention to what you allow in your mind. Keep it positive. Talk about your fears with someone you trust as this will help make the problem appear smaller and more manageable. Develop an understanding of what youre afraid of and this will help you to begin to learn how to erase it. If youre afraid to try something, start working in small steps. When you become familiar with a scary thing slowly, it can be more manageable. Stop trying to figure out why youre afraid. Knowing why you developed a particular fear probably wont help you in overcoming it and may actually delay your progress. Notice if you hold your breath. Sounds funny, but good, regular breathing is vital. Dont underestimate the importance of sleep. Your body and mind require rest. Prolonged stress negatively impacts our performance. Learn to take control of your thoughts, emotions, and surroundings and how you deal with problems. If you want a longer, healthier life full of success, learning to manage your stress is of paramount importance. My wish for you is a life of balance, with time for work and relaxation and fun.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. Considered by many the finest musical ever written, the scores songs include such classics as Some Enchanted Evening, Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, Younger Than Springtime, Bali Hai, There is Nothin Like A Dame, This Nearly Was Mine and A Wonderful Guy. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following film opening in wide release:RiddickGenre: Action and science fiction Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson Director: David Twohy Rated: R Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and continued with 2004s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel. Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human hes encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters wont leave the planet without Riddicks head as their trophy.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.A TeacherGenre: Drama Cast: Lindsay Burdge, Will Brittain, Jennifer Prediger, Julie Dell Phillips, Jonny Mars and Chris Doubek Director: Hannah Fidell Not rated Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, AOpening this weekendDiesel reprises antihero role as ex-con, mercenary in Riddick Photo courtesy of OSCILLOSCOPE LABORATORIESLindsay Burdge stars in A Teacher, from Oscilloscope Laboratories. Teacher explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students, Eric (Will Brittain). What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment.Photo courtesy of MAGNOLIA PICTURESFreda Kelly is the subject of Good Ol Freda, a Magnolia Pictures release.

Offer expires 9-30-13090513 AdoreGenre: Drama Cast: Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, Xavier Samuel, James Frechevile and Ben Mendelsohn Director: Anne Fontaine Not rated Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in Adore, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, the film is the English-speaking directorial debut of distinguished filmmaker Anne Fontaine. It is adapted for the screen by Academy Award-winning writer Christopher Hampton, from a novella by Nobel Prize winner for Literature Doris Lessing.Good Ol FredaGenre: Documentary Director: Ryan White Rated: PG Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. History notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda worked for them for 11. Many people came in and out of the bands circle as they grew to international stardom, but Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges of the greatest band in history. In Good Ol Freda, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few films with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the music industry.PopulaireGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Romain Duris, Dborah Franois, Brnice Bejo, Shaun Benson, Mlanie Bernier, Nicolas Bedos and Miou-Miou Director: Rgis Roinsard Rated: R Spring, 1958. Rose Pamphyle, a 21-year-old, lives with her grouchy widower father who runs the village store. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, she seems destined for the quiet, drudgery-filled life of a housewife. But thats not the life Rose longs for. When she travels to Lisieux in Normandy, where charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard is advertising for a secretary, the ensuing interview is a disaster. But Rose reveals a special gift she can type at extraordinary speed. Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job shell have to compete in a speed typing competition. Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. Hell turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but also in the world! But a love of sport doesnt always mix well with love itself.SalingerGenre: Documentary Cast: Rgis Roinsard Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Danny DeVito, John Guare, Martin Sheen, David Milch, Robert Towne, Tom Wolfe, E.L. Doctorow, Gore Vidal, A. Scott Berg and Elizabeth Frank Director: Shane Salerno Rated: PG-13 For more than 50 years, J.D. Salinger, the elusive author of The Catcher in the Rye, has been the subject of a relentless stream of newspaper and magazine articles as well as several biographies. Yet all of these attempts have been hampered by lack of access and the recycling of inaccurate information. Thus, Salinger has largely remained an enigma to the public and media alike. During the nine years in which Salinger was in production including the six years while the project was being shot under wraps filmmaker Shane Salerno interviewed hundreds of people the world over, many of whom had previously declined to go on the record about their relationship with the iconic author. Salernos much speculated-upon documentary, which has made front page news since 2010, offers direct eyewitness accounts from Salingers World War II brothers-in-arms, his family members, his close friends, his lovers, his classmates, his neighbors, his editors, his publishers, his New Yorker colleagues, and people with whom he had relationships that were unknown even to his own family. Providing unparalleled access to never-before-published photographs, diaries, letters, legal records, and documents, the highly anticipated Salinger paints a definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating figures of the 20th century. Particularly illuminating the last 56 years of the writers life a period that, until now, had remained completely dark to biographers Salerno has, for the first time, gotten beyond Salingers meticulously built-up wall.Touchy FeelyGenre: Comedy Cast: Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, Ron Livingston and Tomo Nakayama Director: Lynn Shelton Rated: R Touch Feely is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her occupation impossible but severely hinders the passionate love life between her and her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). Meanwhile, rumors of Pauls healing touch begin to miraculously invigorate his practice as well as his life outside the office. As Abby navigates her way through a soul-searching identity crisis, her formerly skeptical brother discovers a whole new side of himself. Touch Feely is about the experience of living in ones own skin, both literally and figuratively. The film, written and directed by Shelton, and co-starring Allison Janney, Ron Livingston, and newcomer Tomo Nakayama (of the indie rock band Grand Hallway), is filmed on location in Sheltons hometown and urban muse of Seattle.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

STARS NOMINEES, from page 3B A&E NewsNot every movie can be an Oscar contender. It also stands to reason that actors who have previously won Academy Awards cant wait around for the perfect script and another shot at critical acclaim. Nicholas Cage is a perfect example. Back in the 1990s, he scored Oscar gold with his performance in Leaving Las Vegas. In that era, he was amassing a huge list of award wins and nominations, for everything from Moonstruck to Adaptation. More recently, he has been less choosy about his films. A string of lackluster performances Season of the Witch, Drive Angry, Trespass, Seeking Justice and Stolen have damaged his once distinguished reputation. Personal problems broadcast and undoubtedly exaggerated by the tabloids have further tarnished the actors standing. Cage shows a glimpse of his enduring potential in Lionsgates new thriller The Frozen Ground. His performance is relatively minimalist, and the brooding, conscientious character he portrays Jack Halcombe suits his demeanor. In The Frozen Ground, Halcombe an Alaskan State Trooper is assigned a daunting case, tracking a serial killer who has virtually gone unnoticed for 13 years. When one of the killers victims manages to escape, she reports her abduction and rape to authorities. Due to her background as a runaway and prostitute, investigators initially discount her account. Eventually, the 17-year-old escapee Cindy Paulson, played capably by Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens provides enough details to Halcombe to allow him to start connecting the dots. John Cusack portrays the killer, Robert Hansen. Cusack gives a consistently chilling performance throughout, painting the murderer as a coldly sadistic predator. Cusacks Hansen is meticulous and manipulative outwardly reserved and retiring until cornered. This very adult role for Hudgens proves the High School Musical actress is serious about her career. Her depiction of Paulson is surprisingly multifaceted. She showcases the characters cynicism, underscores the tragedy of her past experiences and delivers some particularly unsettling moments in the backrooms of an Alaskan strip club. Whenever the film achieves a certain level of gritty realism, The Frozen Ground is actually difficult to watch. These solid performances unfortunately dont fully compensate for the films flaws. The Frozen Ground is based on a true story. Director Scott Walker spends too much time exhibiting the formulaic police procedural sequences that have become monotonously common on television crime dramas. He asks the audience to follow three separate story arcs but fails to fully develop any one of the central characters. He further fails to fully exploit the talent of the supporting cast, which includes 50 Cent as Clate Johnson, Katherine LaNasa as Fran Hansen, Dean Norris as Sgt. Lyle Haugsven and Jodi Lyn OKeefe as Chelle Ringell. Theres nothing particularly inspired or innovative about The Frozen Ground its filled with genre clichs, from bureaucratic bickering and ready-to-retire heroes to moral certitude and a bulky textual epilogue. Walker tried to make a story based on actual events conform to the generic police procedural motif in this case, the square peg did not fit the round hole. There have been a number of exceptional films based on authentic serial killer cases, such as Monster and Citizen X. The Frozen Ground lacks the psychological depth of Monster, about real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos. While Citizen X a madefor-TV film about Soviet serial killer Andrei Chikatilo spends a great deal of time examining bureaucratic hurdles and demoralizing procedural obstacles, it delivers a brilliant and thorough study of its central character, forensic specialist Viktor Burakov. Both Monster and Citizen X are masterpieces in this distinct crime drama subgenre dominated by sensationalistic and subpar filmmaking. Not every movie can be a masterpiece. The Frozen Ground isnt a complete failure, but it could have been much better. The subject matter is engrossing, and the acting is exceptional: It is arguably Cages best performance in years. The breakdown is all in the execution. The fine cast makes the film compelling and watchable. The unfocused script and failure to fully develop the characters make it regrettably unmemorable. The Frozen Ground was released theatrically Aug. 23 to a select few markets. To date, the film hasnt been featured at any Tampa Bay area locations. The Frozen Ground is currently available for rental viewing on Bright House On Demand, iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.Movie reviewCage, Cusack spar in unexceptional serial killer drama The Frozen Ground South Pasadena band prepares for seasonSOUTH PASADENA After nine years of directing the South Pasadena Community Band, Max Millspaugh recently announced his retirement.
