SYAA fundraiser underwayMoney raised will pay for improvements at the groups sports complex By TIFFANY RAZZANO SEMINOLE The Seminole Youth Athletic Association has started a fundraising campaign to help pay for improvements at its complex, 12100 90th Ave. Its an ongoing effort to keep the complex up and running, said Andy Wilkinson, SYAA board member and fundraising chair, and to keep the condition of the fields and facilities in good shape. In an online crowd funding campaign, which can be found at rally.org/f/c8Xu1PuDhhg, SYAA is hoping to raise $10,000. But Wilkinson estimates that if SYAA were to tackle everything that needed to be fixed at the complex, it would cost the organization around $80,000. Financial support for the organization comes solely from member fees, grants, sponsorships and donations. The parking lot is probably the biggest project and will be the first completed, Wilkinson said. It hasnt been paved in over 30 years, he said. Potholes have been filled with rocks over the years, but that is only a short-term solution. And drainage in the lot is not that great. There also isnt a clear right of way for pedestrians, he added. The parking lot should cost around $25,000, Wilkinson said. The initial $10,000 being raised would go toward this project. SYAA already has some money, from Florida Central Credit Union signing up for a three-year sponsorship, earmarked for the parking lot improvements. SYAAs Santos Soccer hopes to start a program where its players mentor children with special needs. This means the complex needs to be handicap accessible. In order to do this, we need our facilities to accommodate their needs, Wilkinson said.

By SUZETTE PORTERAt least four names will be on the ballot for a special primary election on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, to decide candidates for the March 11 special election for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The county has been abuzz with speculation since the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Young represented House District 13 for 42 years. The special election will pick a new representative for Pinellas County to serve until the next election cycle. As of Friday, Nov. 8, three candidates had filed paperwork with the Florida Division of Elections, including Republicans David W. Jolly of Indian Rocks Beach and John-Michael Fleig of St. Pete Beach. The third candidate is Lucas T. Overby of Clearwater representing the Libertarian Party of Florida. Democrat Alex Sink, who is reportedly moving to Pinellas County, was the first candidate to announce that she is running since the governor set the election dates. Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30. She has not yet filed paperwork with the state, according to the Division of Elections website.Will not runDemocrat Jessica Ehrlich announced Nov. 6 that she was pulling out of the race. On the Republican side, former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has said he will not run, as has Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel, former state Rep. Larry Crow and Youngs son, Billy. Former Pinellas County Commission Neil Brickfield announced Friday afternoon that he would not run. Its an honor to be considered as a candidate to potentially replace Congressman Bill Young, Brickfield said on his Facebook page. However, Brickfield, who recently became executive director for the Pinellas County Sheriffs Police Athletic League, said the timing just wasnt right. There is still time for additional candidates to decide to run in the primary. Candidate qualifying period runs from 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18, through noon, Tuesday, Nov. 19. The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is Dec. 16. Florida has closed primaries, so only voters registered with a political party may vote in that partys primary election. Any changes to party affiliations must be made 29 days prior to a primary election, which for the Jan. 14, 2014 election is Dec. 16.Campaigns begin for vacant District 13 seat SEMINOLESPC to host global peace forumA global peace forum, World Peace: Let It Begin with Me, will take place Thursday, Nov. 14, 12:30 to 2 p.m., at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N.

Above, Andrea Gregor buys a craft item from Caitie Walker. Caitie, 11, is a local entrepreneur who has started her own business, Caities Colorful Creations.Grannys AtticOther projects include replacing the football bleachers, re-sodding the soccer fields to improve drainage, and installing new perimeter fencing and a new gate at the main entrance. The complex also would benefit from new bathrooms and a new roof for the concession stand, he said. The work for the field will hopefully be funded by a grant from the Florida Youth Soccer Association, Wilkinson said, though the organization hasnt been awarded the money yet. He also hopes to attract more business sponsorships, creating long-term partnerships with local companies. Its really our goal to create partnerships with them, he said, not just a one-time heres some money and forget about it. Of course, individuals are encouraged to contribute what they can afford to support SYAAs cause. We appreciate anything people can give, Wilkinson said. For more information about SYAA, visit www.syaasports .com. SYAA, from page 1AWelch delivers final state of the county address for the year By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch embarked on a different way of communicating with citizens this year with a quarterly state of the county address made available on the countys website and YouTube. Welch delivered his inaugural address on March 27. His second came Aug. 2. The third and final became available via the Internet Nov. 8. Welch began his address by saying that 2013 had been a productive year. The county has tackled a diverse set of issues this year from revising our Emergency Medical Services, or EMS system, to modernizing our efforts to manage stormwater and improve water quality, and addressing the growing impact of poverty on our countys productivity, potential, and taxpayer funded services. Welch talked about the budget in all three addresses. In the final one, he focused on the work by staff to develop the current $1.7 balanced budget that prioritizes public health and safety, community development, environmental sustainability, tourism development and other services, including water quality and an improved surface water management program. Dealing with the cost of emergency management services has been a sore spot for county commissioners for the past several years. Welch talked about the ongoing work to incorporate suggestions from a study by a consulting firm, Fitch and Associates to stabilize the system while continuing quality service. Another topic the chairman focused on during previous addresses is transportation, which is on a fast track to a Nov. 4, 2014 referendum to allow citizens to decide the best way to fund improved transit initiatives. Pinellas County and Tampa Bay lag behind every other metropolitan area when it comes to modern, efficient public transit services, Welch said in his third address. Greenlight Pinellas will change that by funding a modern, dependable and easy to use countywide bus system and a modern local rail system connecting our downtown centers from Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, the Gateway Area and St. Petersburg, with a future connection to Tampa. Welch outlined the benefits of improved transportation including jobs and new development while preserving existing neighborhoods and green spaces. The Pinellas County Commission began an in depth look into the economic impact of poverty and the need for healthy communities in 2012. Staff has been working on a plan to address these challenges in an integrated and comprehensive way, Welch said. A recent report estimates that the impact of poverty in Pinellas is at least $2.5 billion annually. The goal is to provide more effective service delivery, based on collaboration, data management and preventive services, he said. This is a holistic, collaborative approach focused on measurable outcomes and community impact. Healthcare is a related area staff is working to address. Pinellas is a great community, Welch said. But for many of our citizens, healthcare is an ongoing challenge. Pinellas ranks 38 out of the states 67 counties for overall health outcomes. Poverty and lack of access to early preventative health care is a primary driver for our poor health outcomes ranking, he said. We can and must do better, for the benefit of our citizens lacking preventive healthcare and for the Pinellas taxpayers. Work on reducing poverty and associated issues is the focus of a Community Redevelopment area for south St. Petersburg, which officials believe could become a model for redevelopment in other pockets of poverty located in Pinellas. Im excited that the commission is partnering with the city of St. Petersburg to bring new tools to this important effort, Welch said. An area Welch didnt talk about in either of his other state of the county addresses was the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012, which was intended to stabilize the national flood insurance program, but has resulted in unaffordable increases in flood insurance rates. The potential impact to our citizens, businesses and local economy is substantial, Welch said of the new threat. Pinellas County has the most subsidized policies in the nation, including thousands of non-waterfront properties. Your county commission is working with community stakeholders, our legislative delegation and congressional representatives to develop sensible alternatives to stabilize the flood insurance program without having a draconian impact on our property values and economy, Welch said. He thanked Property Appraiser Pam Dubov for her work to assess and educate others about the potential effect of flood insurance reformCounty Commission Chair Ken Welch delivers his inaugural state of the county address on March 27. in Pinellas. This will be a priority for your county commission until an acceptable resolution is crafted, Welch said. Welch also thanked county staff for the work done to move the county forward during his year as commission chair. He praised the strong partnership between the commission and the countys constitutional officers, its districts and municipalities. Pinellas County works well because of the collaborative spirit between our elected officials and the active participation of our citizens, Welch said. Your participation is vital and encouraged. Welch will continue to chair the commission through the remainder of 2013 before passing on the gavel. If the commission follows tradition, Vice Chair Karen Seel will serve at the commissions helm in 2014. The State of the County message can be viewed at www.PinellasCounty.org and on PCC-TV at noon, 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekends.

Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, the concept of the organization has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The goal is to recruit 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 each for the year. At the meetings, members can nominate any local charity or nonprofit as the quarters beneficiary. Three charities will be drawn at random. Those who nominated the charity then give fiveminute presentations explaining why the organization is deserving of the collective denotation. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated to Community Action Stops Abuse or CASA, Ready for Life and Girls Inc. of Pinellas.

By major I mean software that gets a lot of publicity and so is in front of us quite a bit. These are programs like Family Tree Maker, Legacy, Roots Magic, and The Master Genealogist to name but a few. In this age of electronic genealogy they are fairly indispensable in helping us keep track of our data and our research. In addition to that software, there also are well-known websites such as FamilySearch.org, Ancestry.com, and Cyndislist. com that give us access to vast amounts of data that we can search. However, there are other sites and software programs that are perhaps not as well known, but which also can tremendously aid in our genealogy research and data organization. The following are brief explanations of but a few of those. Evernote Evernote is a piece of software that fundamentally allows you to jot notes to yourself. The notes can be tagged with labels of your choosing so you can easily find them when the notes become numerous. It also will allow you to directly make a clip of a website you are viewing so you can revisit it again by simply clicking the hotlink that was saved as a note in Evernote. The software is cloud-based so that means you can load the software on multiple devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops) and see the saved notes synchronized across all of those devices. Dropbox Dropbox is another cloud-based utility. Think of it as a storage area as opposed to a note or document generator like Evernote. It also can be loaded on multiple devices so that the documents saved in Dropbox can be synchronized and viewed across all of your devices. Dropbox has some handy features that make it easy to use for backups. The Dropbox site will even store previous versions of your documents, so if you want to retrieve a document that you changed but then thought better of, you can. If you delete a document from your Dropbox, it also can be retrieved from your account page on the Dropbox site. The things you save in both Evernote and Dropbox can be kept not only in the cloud, but also resident on your computer or other device. That means that if you are at a place where you do not have access to the Internet, you can still view and manipulate your documents and notes. What Ive described above are only the most frequently used capabilities of the two programs. You can anticipate future columns dealing with these two utilities where we will go into much more detail. Relationship Calculator If you ever get confused about the relationship between yourself and another of your ancestors, the Relationship Calculator can be of help. It is completely mouse-click driven, so no typing is necessary. For example, simply click on fathers fathers childs childs child to see that that person is your first cousin once removed. Time Lines of History If you want to get a feel for what was happening in the world during a time one of your ancestors lived, Time Lines of History will reveal it for you.

PETERSBURG The Florida Holocaust Museum will present a public program commemorating the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The museum is at 55 Fifth St. S. Kristallnacht Night of Broken Glass is the name given to Nov. 910, 1938, when nationwide anti-Jewish pogroms took place all over Germany and German-occupied areas. During Kristallnacht, 267 synagogues in Germany and Austria were destroyed and the windows of thousands of Jewish-owned businesses were shattered and their wares looted. The museums annual commemoration of Kristallnacht will consist of a remembrance service with a candle lighting followed by a discussion of the book, The Power of Witnessing: Reflections, Reverberations, and Traces of the Holocaust Trauma, Psychoanalysis, and the Living Mind, published by Routledge, 2013. Nancy Goodman, Ph.D., and Marilyn Meyers, Ph.D., editors and writers of the book, will present testimonial essays telling truths about the horror of the Holocaust in the very personal words of those who remember. Goodman will speak about the founding of the Yale Video Archives of Holocaust Testimonies and the dreams written about by contributors to the Power of Witnessing book whose hearts and souls were touched by the Holocaust. Meyers will speak about the opening and closing of space for recognizing and symbolizing the atrocity of the Holocaust. In the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust there was a conspiracy of silence. In the following years, up to the present, a willingness and desire to know have allowed for healing the pain and for resilience to emerge. Gail Humphries Mardirosian, Ph.D., a contributor to The Power of Witnessing, also will speak about the ways theater gives voice to the silence. Elizabeth Bartolotta will bring her beautiful voice to haunting songs of remembrance. The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The museum is dedicated to teaching the members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with the last admission 30 minutes before closing. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for college students and $8 for students 17 and younger.

I know it is a serious issue, but sometimes I think we can overdo something, and it can have a negative effect. In the last month, my daughter has been a part of a week-long anti-bullying campaign, which included dress-up days, and a five-week program called Peacemakers from CASA, or Community Action Stops Abuse, where an instructor comes into the classroom for an hour a week and talks about bullying and other issues. The most recent effort was an hour-long music program called Didgeridoo Down Under, which talked about antibullying. You would think we have a bullying problem at my daughters school, but they dont. Its just the hot topic and a buzzword right now. I dont usually watch the evening news with my kids around, because its usually about violence and things I dont want my young kids to hear about. But the other day I had it on, and there was that horrible story about the little 12-year-old girl who committed suicide because of being bullied at school. My 9-year-old daughter stopped what she was doing. Somehow, she heard the reporter say the word suicide and knew about that story. I asked her how she knew about it. I have never talked about it, and I really didnt want her knowing about something like that, because I thought she was too young. She said they talked about it at school in her Peacemakers class. I was kind of surprised and asked her what was talked about. To my dismay, I was shocked and mad at what my daughter told me happened in this class. My daughter told me the Peacemaker instructor talked about bullying, and in her presentation, there was a fake person made out of paper that she wanted the kids to come up to and say something mean and then rip off part of the paper. Most of the kids in my daughters class did not want to say anything mean, but the Peacemaker instructor said she strongly encouraged them to come up and do it. She said they had a choice, but pretty much pressured them into doing it. My daughter was one of those kids who didnt want to do it, but ended up going up to the paper person and telling it she didnt like its new haircut. Most kids ended up saying something mean even though they didnt want to. There were two kids that absolutely didnt want to do it. At the end of the presentation, the instructor told those two kids they were the only ones who werent bullies. She gave them a reward, and the others had to write apology notes to the paper person. My daughter told me she felt terrible. She said she only did it because she felt like the instructor was a teacher, and she had to listen to her. The instructor then asked the students how they thought this made the paper doll feel when it was bullied. My daughter said the answers the kids gave were sad, mad, angry, upset and wanted to run away. The instructor said there was one more answer they were missing. This is where the word suicide came up. Something I dont think kids in fourth grade need to know. A message that was meant to be good, in this instance, was not. I ended up calling the organization that presented the program, and they told me the lesson might have been presented wrong by the instructor. I talked to the principal of my daughters school who said she would talk to the presenter and by no means should fourth graders be taught about the word suicide or influenced to do something they didnt feel was right. This was an opportunity for me as a parent to talk to my kids about what had gone on in school. I told both of my daughters that if ever they dont feel something is right, they dont have to do it, even if it is a teacher, instructor or an adult telling them to do something. As far as the word suicide, I talked to my fourth grader about it, even though I think she was too young to know about that just yet. My advice to all parents is to communicate with your kids. Ask them about their day, about their friends and whats going on in their lives. There are serious topics that need to be addressed with our kids in and out of school. We need to be careful, though, in how we address these issues.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The Tampa Bay Storytellers Guild presents Tellabration!, an evening of family-friendly stories for grownups, at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Saturday, Nov. 23, 7:30 to 9 p.m. The event is actually part of a global movement, said Ross Tarr, storyteller and guild member. Storytellers around the world participate in Tellabration! and will be sharing their art form on the same day. The first Tellabration! took place in Connecticut in 1988, organized by J.G. Pinkerton, who created the event to preserve the art of storytelling. He wanted to get communities more active and telling stories, Tarr said. The idea was to preserve family histories so future years can understand what happened in the past. Under the umbrella of the National Storytelling Network, the event slowly spread to other states each year, and in 1995, it went abroad for the first time, with Tellabration! moving to Japan. Today, the event is held in nearly every state and about 20 countries, Tarr said. The guild has hosted Tellabration! since the mids, originally held at the Pinellas Park Library. But this is only the second year it will take place at Park Station. Its a great little venue, Tarr said. A fundraiser for the Chamber, this years Tellebration! features 10 area storytellers, local to Pinellas County: Tarr, Deborah Frethem, Suzanne Nelson, Shari Layne, husband-and-wife tandem storytellers Maureen and Gene Belote, Geneva Nelson, Katie Adams, Sarah Harris (ASL), and a visit by Chicago-based storyteller Sandi Sylver. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. There also will be a silent auction.For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.pinellas parkchamber.com.

Three big bottlenose dolphins had a big fight. In every way, it was a glaring example of the psychology of life lived without walls. It was two against one: N and Riptab against DD2. DD2s alliance partner BB was not there. This was most unusual, but whether the pair took advantage of it to fight the single bull is unknown. If so, it did not appear to work. We first saw them in the distance. Thought the situation was desperate, the vista was beautiful. The sea glittered like a field of diamonds. It created a shimmering Las Vegas stage curtain against which the dolphins suddenly exhibited their most sensational aerial behavior: One dolphin leaps wildly into the sky to avoid a second one lunging out of the water beneath it, trying to ram it. We rushed over but were too late. DD2 had rocketed away to the east, leaving N and his buddy Riptab to mill around and surf a passing wave. Such behavior was out of place for the tension of the moment, and was an example of displacement behavior. In the same way, I might be really mad at you so I safely attack a sandwich. The seas quieted, but the moment would not last. Bottlenose dolphins fight in rounds like professional boxers; either they get winded quickly or just back off to catch their breath. But their fights are on-again-off-again. It is often hard to tell when the fight is over. It is not hard to tell when the conflict starts again. Round two began when DD2 rocketed back from his point of retrieval; we glimpsed something large and gray shooting past underwater. He could have stayed away but did not. The seas erupted in another round of conflict. Like most fights, Round two was mostly underwater. But you could occasionally see the dolphins circling each other, trying to arch over each other, or rolling in the water onto their backs or sides. The latter appeared to be efforts to make contact with another dolphin only with their back rather than the less impervious belly region. When N rolled and pressed against Riptab to squash DD2 between them, DD2 squirted out only to whirl around and continue circling them, vying for position. It was really surprising to see N and Riptab rush away. They left together at speed, using the classic skim behavior in which the dolphin creates a rooster off either side of the body in its haste. This time, it was DD2 who came and milled around the boat as we watched his two rivals become distant silhouettes in the diamond field. Then DD2 vanished and we awaited Round three. It was not long in coming. Curiously, N and Riptab had sprinted into the distance, turned around, came back and launched into Round three. They had acted the same way DD2 acted before Round two. Another wild bout of circling, arching and rolling commenced. Conflict is a fact of life. It is not comfortable. But there is one nice thing about it: Conflict is rare, in its natural state anyway. Constant or predictable conflict is indicative of a destructive situation that must be resolved and is not normal conflict. Because conflict is rare in the natural state, it is hard to study. Many scientists study animal conflict because people are too self-conscious to be studied; they change their behavior when scientists start taking notes! Official studies of animal conflict also are hard because you can never tell what the animals are fighting about. The best you can do is try to figure out the context in which conflict takes place. Today, this was not possible to do. The study of dolphin conflict is especially difficult because it is very hard to tell when dolphins are fighting. Fighting creates lots of splashing. The problem is that other happier behaviors, which are just as active like zesty sex and play, also create lots of splashing. All that splashing obliterates the details. I actually once devoted two years of my life to studying conflict among 13 captive bottlenose dolphins to inform field biologists so they could recognize conflict at sea and differentiate it from those other happier behaviors. I did not know at the time that I would be the field biologist that my study would inform. The feature that best identifies dolphin conflict is the tail whip. The tail whip looks like a dolphin doing a headstand with the back half of his body out of the water and vertical. Clear of the water, the tail is then punched wildly sideways at anyone who is near. DD2, N and Riptab only did fake tail whips like a guy who clenches his fist without throwing the punch. But that did not stop Round 3 from happening. It ended when N and Riptab rushed away again as before, skimming to the south as fast as they could. Again, DD2 swung by the boat and submerged like dolphins do. We waited for Round 4. But the dolphins were totally gone and we never saw them again. In a life without walls, they could take their fight wherever it led them. And they did.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On Nov. 4, the 14-year-old victim disclosed to detectives that the female suspect arranged for her to engage in sexual activity with an adult male for money. The victim told detectives that on Oct. 25, the female suspect told her she was having a male visitor come to her home. The victim was to have sex with him and collect money from him when they were done. Through their investigation, the two suspects were identified, as 60-year-old Wanda Ann Ringgo, aka, Wanda Ann Taylor of Largo and Mohand Rashid, 25, of St. Petersburg. On Nov. 6, a search warrant was obtained and was served at Ringgos residence on Nov. 7. Both suspects agreed to meet with detectives at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo, Nov. 7. Rashid reportedly admitted his involvement with the allegations and was arrested and charged with one count of lewd and lascivious battery. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail Nov. 8 on $10,000 surety bond. Ringgo was not cooperative with detectives during the interview, according to the report from the Sheriffs Office. Ringgo was arrested and charged with one count of human trafficking involving a minor under 15 years of age. She is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail.Fire displaces family of four, three catsREDINGTON SHORES Seminole Fire Rescue and Pinellas Suncoast Fire Rescue responded to a vehicle fire in the carport at 17729 First St. East in Redington Shores Nov. 7.

According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 7, about 6:30 p.m., the first victim was walking in the area of 38th Street North and 46th Avenue North when the suspect approached her from behind. The suspect began to yell at the victim, demanded money and implied he had a gun. The victim began to open her cell phone and the suspect fled on foot toward 29th Street North. Two hours later, at approximately 8:30 p.m. the second victim was exiting the Oleys Food Mart, 3891 46th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. The victim was entering her vehicle when the suspect approached her car. The suspect began to yell at the victim then swung his arm back, striking the victim in the face with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim exited the vehicle and the suspect entered the drivers seat and began driving westbound at 46th Avenue North. The vehicle is described as a four-door Kia Rio, silver in color with a Texas license plate that reads BJG5000. The suspect in the first incident is described as a black male, approximate age 15 to 18, 5-foot, fiveinches or taller, thin build, wearing a white tank top, dark colored pants and a brimmed hat worn backwards. The suspect in the second incident is described as a black male, approximate age 20 to 23, 5-foot, 10inches tall, medium build, wearing a white tank top and possibly a brimmed hat. Due to the similarities of each suspect description and the time frame of each occurrence, detectives believe the suspect in both incidents may be one and the same.

Detectives suspect there may be other victims and ask anyone with information to contact the Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the crime was reported to the Sheriffs Office Aug. 16, after adult relatives of one of the victims found inappropriate text messages on the girls phone. Detectives said the messages included solicitation for nude photos as well as sexually explicit conversations. Detectives began investigating and determined that during the latter part of this summer the girls were frequenting the bouncy house and inflatable slides on Clearwater Beach. The suspect, identified as Leonardo Lopez-Navarro, 33, befriended the girls and allowed them to go on the slides and bouncy house without paying. Detectives further determined that inappropriate physical contact took place at that location between the suspect and the victims. On Nov. 6, detectives obtained a warrant and arrested Lopez-Navarro. During the interview, he reportedly admitted that he had shared his phone number with various juveniles. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $100,000. Detectives suspect there may be other victims and request that anyone with information that may assist in this investigation to call Detective Holly Tsanakaliotis of the Special Victims Unit at 727-582-6200.

Pinellas County Commissioners approved, 51, staffs ranking of firms to implement a Property Assessment Clean Energy program for commercial property countywide. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. Commission Chair Ken Welch was absent. A motion to include residential property in the program was defeated, 4-2, with all but Commissioners Susan Latvala and Charlie Justice voting no. Pinellas Countys Purchasing Department released a Request for Proposal Aug. 5, on request of the commission, to find a provider to implement a PACE program to help property owners in need of financing for wind resistance, energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements. The state legislature authorized the program, which was implemented in 2010, to allow the use of a special assessment, which becomes part of the property tax bill, for certain improvements to residential, commercial and industrial property. The billing is attractive to financers due to the means of collection property tax bill and that PACE liens get priority over mortgage payments due. However, two government loan programs, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, refuse to finance homes that are part of the PACE program and may file a lawsuit against the program. Property owners, using the PACE program, have an advantage of potentially attractive interest rates, and the ability to pay off the loan through on-going assessments on property tax bills. According to a staff report, the PACE program is intended to stimulate economic activity in a variety of sectors, including alternative energy, energy conservation, building materials and associated products. Commissioners John Morroni and Roche objected to including residential properties in the program. They have concerns that the program may do more harm than good to the real estate market. Morroni suggested starting with commercial properties as a trial and perhaps expanding into residential in the future. Roche agreed, but prefers to let the free market provide financing. Im concerned about the fragility of the real estate market, Roche said. Hes also uncomfortable using the propertytax process as guarantee for the loan payments. That changes the role of government, he said. Commissioner Janet Long spoke in favor of an open market instead of picking one vendor to run the PACE program. However, other commissioners believe it would be less confusing to the public to have one vendor at least in the beginning. All did agree with Long that a free market could create a more competitive environment and lower interest rates. Commissioner Karen Seel expressed concern that the countys involvement would mean the public would seek help from the county if the workmanship on projects proved unacceptable. County Attorney Jim Bennett said the only tie Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala favors implementing the Property Assessment Clean Energy program for commercial and residential property countywide. She is responsible for first bringing the program to the commissions attention soon after it was approved by the state legislature. See PACE, page 10A

The contract would be between the property owners with the vendor, he said. The county would have no liability for workmanship, he said. The county is just a financial tool, he added. County Administrator Bob LaSala said staff would ensure that the vendor understood it was responsible for making sure its clients knew that PACE was not a county program. Latvala and Justice said the program could be a benefit to the real estate market by allowing people to make improvements to the safety of their homes. In addition, the state legislature is reportedly considering an amendment to the program that could assist people needing to make improvements to lower their flood insurance rates. In the end, commissioners approved staffs ranking of firms and directed staff to negotiate a contract with the No. 1 ranked firm Ygrene Energy Fund Florida to provide a PACE program for a countywide program for commercial properties only. The commission also asked that the contract include a mechanism for a periodic review.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner John Morroni, a former Realtor, is concerned that the Property Assessment Clean Energy program could hurt the countys real estate market.

INSTALLED FREE! 111413 By BRIAN GOFFLARGO Dozens of people showed up at Indian Rocks Christian School Nov. 7 to see and pay their respects to the American Veterans Traveling Tribute and kickoff a busy Veterans Days weekend at the school. The wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., and contains 58,286 names of veterans who died as a result of the war in Vietnam. Among those who arrived early was Mike Solava of Seminole. He was there with his children, 11-year-old Madison and 9-year-old Michael. He said it was important that his children see this. I saw the monument in Washington and I wanted to show the kids what it was all about, he said. It is very important that they see what our family has done. Solava located the name of his uncle, David Knox of Dalton, Ill., who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. History is important for us to know, because if we dont know it, were going to repeat it, he said. With that, they moved into the fellowship hall for the formal ceremonies opening up the wall exhibit and the weekend of tribute to veterans. The event began with the schools high school choir singing the national anthem and America the Beautiful. The guest speaker was Largo resident Master Sgt. Ben Pigsley, who retired after a 21-year career in the Army. He served in tours all over Europe as well as Desert Storm and in Iraq. His was an emotional speech. He broke down several times as he related what life was like serving in the armed forces. When I hear about someone getting killed in the service of our country, I think about a child who is going to have to grow up without a parent, or a parent who has lost a child, he said. We have to take responsibility for those sacrifices and honor all men and women who serve. Pigsley said there are three reasons why most people volunteer to join the armed forces and serve their country. The first one is that the person is patriotic and wants to make a difference, he said. Second is that the person wants to make a life change after things havent worked out quite the way they had hoped. And third is economic: they join to get work. He said he joined because of a combination of reasons No. 2 and 3. I wanted to make a life change, and I needed a job. Were all born selfish, he said. But he said not long after a young person joins the military, a change takes place. Something begins to happen quickly. It begins the first day of boot camp when you get your hair cut off, so everybody looks the same. You get a uniform, and everybody dresses the same. Then, you are told how to stand and walk and speak and even with that, you are the worst example of a soldier ever, according to your sergeant, he said laughing. He said as a soldier, you soon learn that you as an individual will never be successful until the entire group is successful. You learn it isnt about you. You learn that it is service before self, he said. Then there came a lesson on what it is like to be the family of a parent serving in the military. Emily Speicher, a senior at Indian Rocks Christian School, told the gathering what it is like growing up with a father who is always away. Her dad is currently serving in Afghanistan. I miss my dad at most of the important family events, she said. For example, he wasnt here to help me celebrate when I got my drivers license. He wasnt here at homecoming and proms. No daughterdaddy pictures just my mom and me. He missed all of my marching band competitions. And hes not here tonight to tear up listening to me speak. His little girl is growing up. Speicher said she wasnt complaining, just the opposite. She quoted scripture on the importance of serving. If God came on this earth to serve us, then surely we should too, she said. Service is about giving of yourself for someone else. We all have something we can give. Were all different, but you should do with what you have. She said serving isnt always a sacrifice. Serving is not about me. It is about helping someone else, and there is a reward in doing that. We should look for the small everyday things where we can help and make a difference, she said. Dave Turngren, a deacon at Indian Rocks Baptist Church, was responsible for organizing the event and bringing the wall to the school. He said he did it so the children at the school would have the opportunity to see the sacrifice and potential sacrifice of serving our country. To that end there was a prominent display honoring two graduates of Indian Rocks Christian School who were killed while serving in Afghanistan. Cpl. Frank Gross and Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton were friends who were killed within a year of one another in Afghanistan. Both graduated from the school, in 2003 and 2004, respectively. Gross was killed in 2011 and Sitton in 2012. Their parents and families sat in the front row throughout the ceremonies. The event ended with a performance by the schools Regiment band, but the final word went to Pigsley, who during his speech told of an encounter he had with a Vietnam veteran many years ago. My children were still very young, and I had just come back from overseas, he said. There was an event honoring all veterans at the old Tampa Stadium, so I put on my best uniform and my medals, and I went over there. On his way to the stadium, an older man with an old green jacket confronted him. The jacket displayed his rank and other insignia indicating that he was a Vietnam veteran. He grabbed my hand and thanked me for my service, Pigsley said. I hardly knew what to say, so I thanked him for his service. As we parted, I was thinking how it must have been for him coming back after the Vietnam War. I was moved by the fact that he didnt worry about how he was treated; he was worrying about how I was treated. As Pigsley ended his speech with those words and a private, quiet moment of tears, he received a standing ovation thanking him for his service. The wall was located in the fellowship center of First Baptist Church Indian Rocks through Veterans Day. For more information about the traveling tribute, visit www.avtt.org.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COMNO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerWith November upon us, we enjoy the beautiful fall colors, trips to fruit stands to shop for our favorite apples, and then most importantly, the Thanksgiving holiday, with warm thoughts of spending this day with family and friends. On Thanksgiving Day, many of us are reminded of the blessings of our families and the many treasured memories that will always will be part of our lives. We look forward to this day of sharing a wonderful meal and visiting with family, creating yet another great memory. Yet there are those in our senior population, who may not look forward to this day for a number of reasons. They may live alone with families in other states, unable to come for a visit or often many seniors are not physically able to travel away from home. It can be a lonely time with feelings that no one in their world views them as valuable or worth listening to. Take a moment and reflect on what you may possibly do to fully express the meaning of Thanksgiving throughout the year. Can you think of a way to free-up a couple of hours each week so that you can give that time to someone you know who is in need of company? Everyone has a story and the longer you live, the more stories you have to share. Invite a senior you know who lives alone to your table on this special holiday. Listen to their stories and know in your heart that they will go home thankful for the memory you helped create for them. The true meaning of Thanksgiving should not end after a prayer or a few shared moments of thanks. Thanksgiving consists of two special words, thanks and giving. Thanksgiving 2014, let us all try to set some time aside for a senior who could use our attention. The joy and the caring you provide will leave a lasting touch on a heart yearning for someone to take an interest in them, and listen to their stories as each of us has a life story. Pull up a chair and just listen, then feel fulfilled with the gift you have given. 111413Every Life has a StoryFor every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.

They had a blast dressing up for Halloween, and they are this months Pet of the Month winners. Their human mommy and daddy are Linda and Bob Kubilius of Clearwater Beach. They rescued Gracie Lou from a bad situation when she was 4 months old. She was very sick with kennel cough and underweight, and Linda nursed her back to health. Now, these sweet little clowns love to join their parents for walks on the beach. They are always playing, and if there is not a toy nearby, then they love when their mom throws their special flipper floppies to them. They also have their own lounge chairs because Teddy Bear is too small to jump up onto the couch. For being only 8 pounds, Teddy Bear can sure snore and is always waking up the rest of the family. However, they are healthy pups, with their favorite treats being blueberries, bananas and carrots.

On the average, age 7 equates to 55-65 human years. Our pets bodies and organs begin aging at a more rapid rate once they become a senior at 7. What does this mean for your pet? As he or she ages, we can see signs at home that clue us in to decreasing function of his or her body systems. Drinking more water, and in turn urinating more, can be our only sign of diabetes, kidney insufficiency/failure, or endocrine (hormone) disease. Reluctance to exercise may be the result of arthritis or heart disease. Changes in appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, and sneezing can be indicative of various disease processes that involve the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs. Many of these changes happen over time and are sometimes difficult to recognize because we see our pets everyday. Identifying these signs early and bringing your pet in for a physical exam leads to a greater chance of early diagnosis and treatment. Most of our pets have been generally healthy in their younger years and have never needed a full biochemical profile, complete blood count (CBC), thyroid hormone level, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, radiographs, or any other diagnostic procedure apart from yearly heartworm testing and intestinal parasite screening. The physical exam performed yearly can provide a great deal of information; however, without the benefit of biochemical profiles and other diagnostic tests, it is difficult to assess how well the internal organs are functioning. In many cases, performing these tests alert us to problems that are just beginning and early diagnosis leads to early treatment. Early detection, and early treatment, can extend your pets longevity and quality of life. The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Animal Hospital of Dunedin recommends yearly screening of your senior pet. Your veterinarian will make recommendations for your pet according to the physical exam findings. At the Animal Hospital of Dunedin, our goal for our patients in their golden years is to prolong life with quality.Dr. Heather Manfredi, D.V.M., is a veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, November 14, 2013For years, Florida has relied on tourism as a major source of revenue, but in order for the state to continue economic growth, it must invest in other key industries as well. The Florida Legislature has recognized the importance of an efficient logistics network to job creation, retention, and the recruitment of companies from other states and around the globe by increasing investment in Florida ports and other infrastructures. These improved facilities have enhanced Floridas global competitiveness, provided jobs to thousands of Floridians and improved our international trade and tourism. Investments in Floridas infrastructure also provide a steady stream of local, state, and federal government revenues. Florida is home to 15 seaports that handle about 40 percent of total U.S. exports, welcome the largest number of cruise passengers in the world, and employ more than 680,000 Floridians. These jobs generate $26.1 billion in personal income, produce $96.6 billion in direct business revenue, and contribute to more than $2.4 billion in local and state taxes. The direct economic impact of ports will be even greater if Florida capitalizes on opportunities for growth. The growing population in Florida and in the southeast mega-regions, the latter which currently account for more than one-third of the U.S. population, is expected to increase the demand for goods entering Florida. Growth of international markets will add to that demand, especially those located in the Latin American region. Trade with Latin America and the Caribbean is of utmost importance for Florida, as seven of its top 10 trading partners have been from this region in recent years. Florida should expect higher seaport traffic in the coming years, if and only if the right investments are made in order to maintain seaport competitiveness. While several of our ports are already expanding and improving their facilities, it is important for Florida seaports and logistics centers to work together toward a statewide development vision rather than a local or regional one. A statewide vision would avoid connectivity issues, redundancies, and inefficiencies in the system. Several reports have called for this vision, including The Florida Department of Transportation 2060 Transportation Plan and the Florida Chamber Foundations Florida Trade and Logistics Study. While Florida has the chance to benefit from changing international landscapes and further domestic investment, we should be aware of how other states are developing their seaports and intermodal systems. This is particularly true for states in the southeastern region that have successfully increased their exports at a high growth rate for the past years. For example, Louisiana is currently experiencing increases that may well position them at a higher ranking than Florida in the near future. The Florida seaport industry continues to grow, as shown by the increase in sea and coastal transportation jobs since the end of the recession. In order to maintain this growth and help Florida remain a world trade hub, policy makers should continue to appropriate the necessary resources to this industry, as our ports ability to efficiently handle freight will determine if Florida will take a larger share of both domestic and international trade, however, doing so will require the right investment and careful planning. While looking for opportunities to further diversify Floridas economy and make the Sunshine State a better place to live, work and play, state leaders should continue to support Florida ports.Dominic M. Calabro is President and Chief Executive Officer of Florida TaxWatch, a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan government watchdog and research institute for taxpayers.What do Tuesdays resounding re-election of Republican Chris Christie as governor of Democrat-friendly New Jersey and the excruciating defeat of tea party stalwart and gubernatorial wannabe Ken Cuccinelli in once reliably Republican Virginia say about Republican chances of retaking the White House in 2016? Christie won by 22 points after badmouthing the federal government shutdown, which these days makes him a moderate. Now some pundits are wondering out loud whether Christie is the 2016 front-runner. In losing to oily Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Cuccinelli drove another nail in the tea party coffin. I wouldnt declare Christie the GOP frontrunner. As Ethics and Public Policy Center senior fellow Henry Olsen opined, Christie has a unique outsize appeal that works in New Jersey but will not necessarily translate to the national stage. But sometimes the conventional wisdom is right. Here are the lessons I take away from the voters verdicts: The tea party strategy of bucking the party establishment is a loser. Cuccinelli supporters are venting against the GOP establishment for not giving more money to their man when polls showed that McAuliffes lead was dwindling because of the glitch-rich Obamacare rollout. Knowing that Christie was going to win that race without their help, why would they not help Cuccinelli more? Tea Party Express head Amy Kremer complained to The Washington Times. She has a point, but she ignores the laws of cause and effect. In maneuvering the nomination process from a primary election to a convention, the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a biting none-of-the-above endorsement, Cuccinelli engaged in an expression of raw power (that) would have delighted sachems of Tammany Hall. Virginia does not welcome an in-your-face governor. Tea partyers boast that the GOP cannot win without them. But guess what. They cannot win without the establishment, either. Successful candidates appeal to those outside their base. During his acceptance speech, Christie boasted that he won because he campaigned outside the GOP base. He talked about the need to listen to voters a novel concept. In his concession speech, Cuccinelli talked to dead people. We fought for the principles that were first articulated for the whole world by Virginians, Cuccinelli told his supporters. He mentioned George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Were New Jersey, Christie said. We fight, but for whats important. Cuccinelli? He told his supporters, We home-school. There is a right way and a wrong way to oppose abortion rights. To talk to all America, you have to start with the proposition that we are happy that women have a different role in life and control over their bodies, Olsen noted. We are a pro-life party, Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling told The New York Times, but if were going to be the party of fetal ultrasounds, were going to have a problem. Christie opposes abortion rights. He vetoed Planned Parenthood funding more than once. The difference is that Christie talks as if he knows governing is his most important mission. There are two kinds of Republicans: those who think Democrats are the big problem with Washington and those who blame other Republicans. From opposing corners, Cuccinelli and Christie fall into the latter category. Cuccinellis tea party shut down the federal government in a failed effort to defund Obamacare. That stunt boomeranged and cost Cuccinelli votes from angry families of furloughed federal workers. Sometimes I feel like our party cares more about winning the argument than they care about winning elections, Christie told CNN. Hes right. The shutdown was a bust. But if Christie wants to win in 2016, he shouldnt lecture the base. If lectures won elections, Cuccinelli would be governor-elect.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

Its unlikely well see an end to it in our lifetimes. Heres what we may look forward to in years to come. WASHINGTON, D.C. June 20, 2022. The National Rifle Association today announced complete control of almost half of Congress. An NRA spokesman said, We now can state that forty-four of the Senates 100 members and 238 of U.S. representatives have pledged their absolute support for all NRA policies and goals. This will guarantee that no new guncontrol laws will be adopted during the current session of Congress, and that several existing anti-NRA laws will be repealed. The spokesman added, The loyalty of these pro-NRA legislators was obtained without a single bribe being extended or accepted by these gallant Second Amendment defenders. We simply made them an offer they couldnt refuse. If they agreed to become a willing servant of the NRA, we would give them our full backing for the remainder of their political lives. If, on the other hand, they chose to remain independent, we would oppose them with a level of enthusiasm that would make them wish they had been born in Bangladesh. This arrangement now referred to as the Bangladesh Deal almost always brings the Congresspersons around to our way of thinking. WASHINGTON, D.C. Feb. 14, 2018. The Pew Research Center says that most Americans fully expect there will be at least one shooting incident per week at a college, public school or shopping mall. It seems to have become part of the American Way of Life, said Lillian Armstrong, a Pew vice president. We view this attitude as neither pessimistic or optimistic. During the past decade or so, shootings in public places have become so common that anyone with a grain of sense has concluded that most citizens are in danger the moment they open their front door and step outside. Ms. Armstrong said, Whats disturbing is the fact that millions of Americans no longer are greatly disturbed by all the gunfire and death that surround us. Our media studies show that, unless the shooting occurs within a two-mile radius of their homes, the average citizen spends less than seven seconds viewing a TV report or reading a news account of the gunfire, before passing on to other news items. Like cellphones or football, shootings have become an accepted part of our culture. One interviewee summed up Americans feelings with this remark: What do you expect, when most people you pass on the street are carrying at least one weapon? A firearm is much like your sex drive: use it or lose it. Ms. Armstrong said. EUGENE, Ore. Sept. 22, 2016. A sixthgrade student at the Lincoln Elementary School has been expelled for using the word rifle in an essay written for a composition class. The schools principal, Todd Farmhorst, told local news media that the expulsion of the boy identified only as Joey was an expression of the schools zero-tolerance policy with regard to firearms. Other schools may pussy-foot around when it comes to guns, but Lincoln Elementary is not one of them, he said. He added, We began by prohibiting the possession of any sort of weapon by students. Later we added pencils and pens to the list, along with perfume or cologne that might be sprayed into a victims face during an attack. Our next step was to cleanse our schools library of all books with the words gun, bomb, shoot, stab, or pistol in a books title. Students were forbidden to use those and other incendiary terms in their daily speech while attending classes. Finally, we cracked down on any written materials that contained words referring to guns, explosives or violence of any kind. The principal said, Joeys essay told about a hunting trip his father had taken ten years ago. He could have used a synonym for rifle, but he chose not to. Now he must pay the price. If I could, I would expel any student who even thought about guns. An unexpected result of Principal Farmhorsts actions was a false report that a serial killer carrying six kinds of firearms and an assortment of hand grenades had invaded the school. Police from Eugene and five nearby communities surrounded the school, ordered a lockdown, and summoned attack helicopters to the scene. Before the mistaken report was cleared up, the noise and confusion had scared the school children out of a years growth, according to one parent, who added, But it was worth it, to keep our kiddies safe from these gun nuts.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Seaports are a good investmentOther viewsThe Lakeland Ledger Nov. 7Medicaid Expansion: Florida should fill health gapFlorida is losing $55 billion in federal funding over 10 years because of its failure to expand Medicaid. The money would have covered the entire cost of the expansion for three years and 90 percent subsequently. Conservative lawmakers were worried about having to pay more later, so they decided that no one gets covered by the expansion now. At least 21 states have taken the money, including several with Republican-controlled statehouses. The politics that have led to the states failure to act will prove costly to its citizens and hospitals. The solution is for Florida to do the math and swallow the extreme, anti-Washington ideology and accept the $55 billion in federal funding to expand Medicaid.The Miami Herald Nov. 9Florida governors race: All signs point to rough ride aheadAlmost as soon as former Gov. Charlie Crist made his expected announcement last week that he intends to run for his old seat in 2014, negative ads against him started popping up on television. Welcome to Election Year 2014. Its going to be a rough and mud-spattered ride. By now, most voters are resigned to the sad reality that negative campaigns are a driving force in most races. This time around its starting far earlier than usual, with the promise of lots more to come.Florida Today Nov. 8Hazing and other NFL failuresNot long ago, NFL coaches routinely rushed injured players back onto the field before they were ready. Coaches also ran their teams like despots, with their ears closed to player concerns. Nowadays, things are a bit different. Sensitive to its image and the possibility of litigation, the league requires teams to treat injuries, particularly concussions, much more seriously. And coaching styles have evolved away from the General Patton-like model. But if coaches have changed with the times, the locker rooms they rule havent changed much since players wore leather helmets. The mess in Miami, where Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team after being subjected to epithets and other abuse from fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, exposes how destructive outdated player rituals can be.

Early Learning Coalition changes leadership CLEARWATER The board of directors for the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County Inc. recently decided to terminate the employment of the organizations chief executive officer, Janet Chapman, during a special meeting on Oct. 23. Chapman led the nonprofit for 12 years, when the organization was formerly known as the Pinellas County School Readiness Coalition. Following reports of a funding surplus, the board began an internal investigation on leadership practices and organizational morale which included feedback from coalition employees. The board carefully reviewed the reports and employee concerns when making our decision, said Julie Daniels in a press release. Daniels is the board chair. We did not come to this decision lightly as it weighed heavily on my mind as well as many other board members. Ultimately change in leadership was necessary in order to move the coalition in a new direction. The board of directors has followed the coalitions succession plan and appointed Lindsay Carson, deputy CEO, as the interim CEO. The coalitions executive committee will conduct a thorough search for a permanent replacement. We are working toward strengthening relationships in the community with our partner agencies, early education providers and families, said Carson. Our dedicated team remains committed to supporting families and ensuring children have access to early care and education services. The coalitions School Readiness Scholarship program is currently at full enrollment with 6,161 children. In addition, the Voluntary Prekindergarten program has 5,310 children in care. The Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County Inc. is one of 30 Coalitions in Florida. It works to ensure that programs and services are available to assist young children during their formative years. Floridas VPK program is free for all children who are 4 years old. School Readiness Scholarships provides assistance for low-income working families by paying a portion of the childcare costs on a sliding fee scale.

PETERSBURG A workshop on entrepreneurship after 50 will be presented Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7, at Eckerd Colleges Lewis House Executive Education Center, 4200 54th Ave. S. The workshop, entitled Dont Retire from Your Life: Explore Encore Entrepreneurship and Renew, Re-imagine and Unleash You, will be conducted by a team of nationally recognized thought leaders on senior entrepreneurship. It is estimated that 70 percent of all baby boomers expect to work in some capacity after they retire, indicating the nation has a significant pool of aging human capital that will be exploring an entrepreneurial third age. While media attention on entrepreneurial activity in the United States has been focused on millennial generation, 20-something techies, the reality is that more than 40 percent of all start-ups in America are by adults over 45 years of age. The cost to attend the workshop is $349. There is no minimum required education level to participate. Led by Cheryl Kiser, executive director of Babson Colleges Social Innovation Lab, and Elizabeth Isele, the co-founder and CEO of SeniorEntrepreneurshipWorks.com, the two-day eProvStudio workshop will introduce participants to Entrepreneurial Thought & Action, a dynamic methodology created by and taught daily at Babson College, the topranked school in the world in entrepreneurship education.

Using elaborate camera movements, a dense soundscape, intricate production design and spectacular locations, Faust conjures up a unique and phantasmagoric vision of the Faustian legend. Faust (Johannes Zeiler) is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment, but becomes obsessed with the lovely Margarete (Isolda Dychauk) and eventually sells his soul to the Devil (Anton Adasinsky), also known as the Moneylender, so that he may possess her. Comic, cosmic, painterly and stunningly beautiful scenes abound as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey that ends in Hell itself. The story of Faust is one of the most popular in western literature.NebraskaGenre: Drama Cast: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, Stacy Keach, June Squibb and Bob Odenkirk Director: Alexander Payne Rated: R After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks hes struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune.

Their luck may be changing when they learn that Melissa has become pregnant. But as soon as she loses her job and they get evicted from the motel they live in, their joy vanishes. Through this adversity, the couple realizes that they can never lose everything as long as they have each other.For more movie news, visit www.TBN weekly.com.

OPENING, from page 1BST. PETERSBURG A conversation with Christopher Still will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. This Collectors Circle Lecture, sponsored by Northern Trust, is free and open to the public. Still is a quintessential Florida artist, as he paints about the state he loves. The conversation will offer a rare glimpse into his inspiration and work. A native of the Tampa Bay area, Still received a full scholarship through a national competition to attend the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he received his bachelors degree in fine arts. While there, he was recognized for outstanding accomplishment in painting and received the Pennsylvania Governors Award for fine art. He also took courses in human anatomy at Jefferson Medical School and completed an apprenticeship in Florence, Italy. Still returned to Tampa Bay in 1986 and has a studio in Tarpon Springs. He is represented in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Florida Governors Mansion, and the Polk Museum of Art, among others. His painting, Orchids (1991), which seems to burst from the frame, is part of the MFA collection. His work has been part of exhibitions at museums around the state and across the country. His commissions have encompassed paintings for St. Petersburg City Hall, 10 murals for Floridas House of Representatives, and the official portrait of legendary Gov. Lawton Childs. He also created a largescale painting and sculpture for the Tampa International Airport and the 25th anniversary painting for Ruth Eckerd Hall. In 2010, he was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame at 49, the youngest ever to receive this distinction. For information, call 8962667 or visit www.fine-arts.org.Museum of Fine Arts to host conversation with StillNovember 14, 2013CapricornDecember 22 January 19 Time to count your blessings, Capricorn.

Sixth Ave., Tampa Friday, Nov. 22, 8 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 23, 2 p.m., at the SAFI Space, 1714 CR1, Suite 2, Dunedin This off-beat comedy, written by the Sedaris siblings author David and his sister actor and comedienne Amy is uber over the top, said director Lil Barcaski, and really, really funny. Farcical in nature and driven by the Sedaris signature quirky humor, The Book of Liz tells the story of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock (Brianna Larson), a cheeseball making member of the Squeamish, a vaguely Amish sect. Shes used to being pushed around by Rev. Tollhouse (Zackhary Meyers, who stepped up to take on the role just two weeks before performances began), but the bullying gets worse when Brother Nathanial Brightbee (Jordan Harner) arrives at Clusterhaven and demands she fork over her famous cheese ball recipe, which sustains the existence of their religious community. Feeling frustrated and unappreciated, Liz decides to leave her cloistered home and enter the real world. Along the way she dons a peanut costume, befriends a Ukrainian couple with Cockney accents (Tamara Spiri and Ricky Jones) and finds a job at Plymouth Crock Restaurant, which is run by recovering alcoholics. And while the play is funny, the message is just as important, Barcaski said. This play, with all its silliness, reminds us that it may be better to improve things where you are than run away to that always perfect place, the other side of the fence, where the theoretical grass is greener, she wrote in the playbill. And maybe more importantly, to be kind and respectful of the people we love, lest we lose them.

The sale of the Seminole Office Center to North American Development Group closed Oct. 23, wrote Elliott Ross, managing director of Ross Realty, the propertys former owner, in an Oct. 30 email. Seminole Mall LP, a Delaware-based limited partnership that bought the ailing mall in October of 2012, is run out of NADGs Palm Beach office. The two office buildings, located at 7997 and 7999 113th St. N, sold for $1.95 million, Ross wrote in a second email, sent on Oct. 31. He also said that Ross Realty had to pay the new owners $25,000.The Greater Seminole Chamber of Commerce office and meeting space is located within one of these buildings.

He spoke at an Oct. 23 Rotary Club of Seminole meeting at Lake Seminole Country Club. Known as Hurricane Hole, the property is located between the Bay Pines medical facility and Madeira Beach Middle School. It will be accessible to the public, Chapin said. Its not just for the college, he said. Its a community resource. The Outdoor Learning Cloud will be the first portion of the project to be completed. By attaching sensors to various organisms throughout the property, visitors will be able to instantly learn about the historical and scientific details of Hurricane Hole through their mobile smart device. Underwater robots will also be used to continuously collect and stream data. Youll be able to walk around the property, point your smart device at that tree over there and the tree will talk to you, Chapin said. Some of the information made available will include meteorological, historical, biological, chemical and ecological data. The beauty of this is its continuously changing and growing, Chapin said. If a hurricane comes through and destroys parts of the area, the cloud will change and reflect that. Based on Pittsburghs Schenley Park, near Carnegie Mellon University, this research project will be completed over time by students and affect those studying in a variety of disciplines biology, chemistry, technology. This truly is a STEM project, Chapin said. Chapin hopes that work on this portion of the project, which will cost about $100,000 to $150,000 and will be funded by federal grants, will See REAL ESTATE, page 4APhoto by DARREN SUDNICKA beached 32-foot sperm whale flips its tail into the air briefly Oct. 31 before being euthanized by veterinarians from the University of Florida. By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County needs a new leader to represent local interests in the U.S. House of Representatives. A week after Rep. C.W. Bill Young was laid to rest, Gov. Rick Scott issued an executive order setting the date for a special election to fill the empty seat. Young represented House District 13 for 42 years. When he died, more than a year was left on his term. Until a new representative is elected, the majority of the county lacks one of its voices in Congress. House District 13 covers all of Pinellas, except a small area in south St. Petersburg plus one Gulfport precinct, and northernmost voting precincts that encompass Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, East Lake and one in Palm Harbor. Scotts executive order calls for a primary election on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014. The general election follows on Tuesday, March 11, which coincides with elections already scheduled in 16 of the countys 24 municipalities. This congressional district is entirely in Pinellas County and represents 75 percent of our voters, Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark said. We appreciate Gov. Scott issuing the executive order early and for approving the election schedule proposed by Gary Holland, assistant director of the Division of Elections. Clark said the schedule allows sufficient time for election preparation and allows time to mail ballots to our overseas and military voters 45 days prior to each election so they are not disenfranchised. Orange Blossom Groves on Seminole Boulevard. By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH Officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the University of Florida and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration performed a necropsy Nov. 1 on a 32-foot sperm whale that beached itself in shallow water off Madeira Beach a day earlier. The 5-ton, female whale was euthanized Oct. 31 and later towed to a remote spot at Fort De Soto beach where the necropsy took place. The remains were buried nearby. There were no firm results but officials said the whale had a long-term illness. Scientists found signs of a severe infection that they said the whale had for months. No cause for the infection or the type of infection has been determined. The whale was discovered shortly after sunrise Oct. 31 along a stretch of beach at 132nd Avenue in Madeira Beach. Shortly thereafter the sighting attracted large numbers of curious spectators, media, fire fighters and law enforcement and FWC officials. FWC officials said the whale was almost dead and severely emaciated. Its tail flipped in the air periodically before University of Florida veterinarians sedated the animal and later injected drugs to euthanize it. According to an FWC officer, the beached whale was the first along the Pinellas beaches since 2009 when another was discovered slightly north of Thursdays sighting.Whale necropsy indicates infection See HOUSE SEAT, page 4A See STEM, page 4A By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE For just this month, the Seminole Discussion Group on Recycling & Sustainability will meet at the Seminole Community Library on a new day at a new time Wednesday, Nov. 13, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. This is just the groups second gathering since reconvening following a three-month break over the summer. Typically, the group meets for two hours on the first Monday of each month, from 10 a.m. to noon, but this month its schedule got disrupted due to elections and other previously planned events. This is the perfect opportunity for those who are interested in the group but unable to attend Monday morning meetings to check it out, said Billie Jo Bell, who serves as co-president with Greg Plantamura. The information at these meetings is so incredible and the speakers are so phenomenal, Bell said. We wish more people could see this and be more aware of whats going on in their communities. She added, This is your environment. You only have one world. We live in such a disposable society. Novembers featured speaker is Lisa Yasco of the Edible Peace Patch Project. Past speakers have included Jeremy Hockenbury, Seminoles director of Public Works; local beekeepers; Barbara Arthur, Morning Star Fisherman; representatives from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; and Bill Embree, Pinellas County Utilities Solid Waste Administrator. Mary Hampton, a retired science teacher from New York, formed the group in 2009.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A STEM, from page 1Abegin within the next couple of months, starting with the planned nature trail and parking lot. Within a year, I hope the path is built and Im hoping to put other stuff in there, he said. The STEM hands-on learning center is the more ambitious portion of the plans for Hurricane Hole. Geared towards technology, marine and environmental science, the 10,000-square-foot center will be designed to serve students in middle through graduate school. It will include a classroom, space for small groups to meet, individual research labs, a conference center, a student research center and a faculty development center. In the lobby, marine specimens will be on display. In total, the center will cost around $4 million, Chapin said. About half of the funds are on hand, he added, and he hopes the state will help fund the rest. Plans for the center are still being discussed. An architect, who hasnt been officially hired to design the center, has provided conceptual sketches of what the center could look like. The two possibilities are a single-building design or a series of clustered buildings each with a different use. Chapin said he prefers the clustered-building design and it likely will be chosen. A year from now, I would love to see some construction going on, he said. He also stresses that the project is a true partnership. SPC is working with several other entities, including Admiral Farragut Academy, Florida Fish and Wildlife, the City of Seminole, the University of South Florida marine science department, Eckerd College, the Science Center of Pinellas County and the Pinellas County School District.September email. So far, the new owners have remained mum regarding plans for the mall property, which currently has several tenants remaining, including Stein Mart, Bealls, Ross and Radio Shack. In a previous interview, Dale Johnson, a project development director for the Tampa-based Primerica Group One, which has partnered with Seminole Mall LP on the project, said no plans are set for the property, but she hopes it will become a community anchor. It will be a wonderful downtown for people, she said, which is something Seminole doesnt have. Its still an ongoing process and theres tremendous interest. Its been a very positive process and will be very positive for the city and for everyone involved. Meanwhile, 5800 Seminole Blvd., the former home of Orange Blossom Groves, has a potential buyer and is under contract, said Corrine McCaffery via email. McCaffery is the listing coordinator for Sandy Hartmann & Associates, the Realtor handling the sale. And the buyer is doing their due diligence, McCaffery wrote. So far so good. She did not disclose the name of the buyer or potential use for the land. The property, which was put on the market in June by the family of citrus king Al Repetto, consists of six parcels of land totaling 9.2 acres, and is listed at $2.9 million, Hartmann said in June. Each parcel is zoned separately for its own land use. Five commercial lots, with a frontage on Seminole Boulevard, total 2.2 acres. The commercial portion of the property includes a 21,400-square-foot building as well as a 1,595-square-foot office and 3,900-square-foot retail store. Abutting the commercial land to the west are 7 acres formerly a small orange grove, Hartmann said zoned for residential use. The family would be willing to sell the commercial and residential portions separately, at $1.35 million and $1.55 million respectively, Hartmann said. Currently, Florida Citrus Country leases the commercial space and operates on the property on a seasonal basis. According to information supplied by the county Elections Office, voter registration deadlines, by law, are 29 days prior to any election. The deadline for the special primary election is Dec. 16, 2013 and Feb. 10, 2014 for the special election. Clark reminds voters that the state has closed primaries, so only voters registered with a political party may vote in that partys primary election. Any changes to party affiliations must be made 29 days prior to a primary election. Early voting is scheduled from Jan. 412, 2014 for the primary and March 1-9, 2014 for the special election. Registered voters will be able to vote between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday in any of the three Supervisor of Elections offices. No word was available from the Supervisor of Elections about mail ballots. Nancy Whitlock, Elections Supervisor, said staff was still working on the schedule. By law, ballots must be mailed at least 45 days prior for overseas and absent military voters. Ballots must be mailed to domestic voters between 35 and 28 days prior to Election Day.Candidate qualifyingCandidate qualifying period runs from 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18, through noon, Tuesday, Nov. 19. As of noon Monday, Nov. 4, the state Division of Elections had not added information about the program for 1,200 students, and after moving to the area in 2007, she made a presentation on recycling to the Seminole City Council. Those early meetings drew only a small handful of attendees, but the self-proclaimed Queen of Recycling strove to book high caliber speakers on a variety of topics: aquaponics, permaculture, solar energy, composting. Through word-of-mouth, interest in the group grew, and soon it was drawing more than 30 attendees each month, Hampton said It takes all of us to try to work and improve things, she said. It takes all of us to do every single, teeny tiny thing we can do and every big thing we can do. Hampton, who spends her summers in Vermont, stepped down as the groups leader after moving 105 miles north of Seminole to Sumter County. Ive loved doing this work, she said. Its going to take getting used to. The group is in good hands, though, she said. I think that Greg and Billie Jo are now forming their own team and theyre working hard to get good speakers, she added. We want [the group] to grow and we want it to become more of a countywide thing and not just Seminole, Bell said. Were also going to be getting involved with more business owners and bring in more businesses, perhaps.

REAL ESTATE, from page 1A HOUSE SEAT, from page 1Aelection or candidates to its website. Officials said no candidates had filed their paperwork. Democrat Alex Sink was the first candidate to announce that she is running since the governor set the election dates. Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30. I made this decision after careful consideration, Sink said. Everywhere I go, I hear the same sentiment from Floridians: Washington is broken. Look at what happened during the government shutdown. The people of Pinellas County I have talked to are angry they are frustrated that our leaders in Washington were unwilling to solve even the most basic of problems to keep our government running. What we saw earlier this month was unacceptable. Thats why Ive decided its time to get off the sidelines and do my part to start changing how we do business. Democrat Jessica Ehrlich, who has been campaigning to run in the November 2014 election, has not made an official announcement about the special election; however, her campaign is still active, according to recent news releases on her new website. On the Republican side, media reports say that David Jolly, Youngs former general counsel, has announced his candidacy and is backed by Youngs wife, Beverly. Former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has said he will not run, as has Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, former state Rep. Larry Crow and Youngs son, Billy. Among those reportedly still undecided are Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel, former Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard and former Pinellas County Commissioner Neil Brickfield. There was no word on Youngs brother, Tom, who also reportedly has said he might run. Young, 82, of Indian Shores, the nations longest serving Republican member of the U.S. Congress died Oct. 18, 2013. He was buried in Bay Pines Cemetery Oct. 24.Seminole native takes on The X FactorRachel Potter, a 2002 graduate of Seminole High School, is one of the top 16 finalists on this season of reality show competition The X Factor.

Thats because Pinellas County officials announced Oct. 30 plans for a major renovation to the Park Boulevard Bridge that will close the structure for about 30 days. The bridge will remain in the open position in order to meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements. County engineer Tom Menke said the primary reducer, or gearbox, which lifts the bridge, needs to be replaced and probably the secondary reducer, which is leaking oil, will be replaced as well. Weve had maintenance issues with this for a while, said Menke. It (the reducer) is undersized and doesnt meet the current specifications for the bridge. The estimated cost of the project is $700,00 to $800,000, Menke said. Final engineering specifications are being prepared and the project is expected to be put out for bid soon. A failure of the primary reducer on May 7 prompted the county to move forward with the upgrades. Plans are to replace the reducer, motor brake and adjust the air buffer mechanisms of the bridge me-Photo by BOB McCLUREThe Park Boulevard bridge will be closed to motorists and pedestrians for 30 days in June. chanics, according to a county news release. People have been complaining about that bridge for some time, said North Redington Beach Mayor Bill Queen. So its good that youre moving forward on this. Nancy McKibben, an engineering specialist for Pinellas County, said the work was scheduled in June because school would be out. It also will be hurricane season, she said. So if we need to have an evacuation, the bridge will be forcefully closed. Menke was asked why engineers couldnt do one side at a time, leaving one lane open for traffic during the work. He explained that the bridge is a single bridge, unlike the Indian Rocks Beach bridge, which would nix that idea. There also will be some other construction going on, Menke said, and we could have some lane closures (leading to the bridge). Alternative routes during the construction will be the Indian Rocks Causeway and the Tom Stuart Causeway bridges. The Park Boulevard bridge was built in 1979, connecting Park Boulevard with the barrier islands. Here and There Here and ThereMaster volunteers honored for serviceCLEARWATER More than 100 volunteers who stand up and speak up for abused and neglected children in Pinellas County were the guests of honor at a special event, sponsored by the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, at Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater Oct. 22. These volunteers were given the title of Master Guardian ad Litem. They represent a select group of highly dedicated guardian ad litem volunteers who, through years of service, have shown an outstanding expertise in child advocacy. They have gone above and far beyond what is needed in their cases to ensure that the best interests of the children that they advocate for have been met. The guest speaker at the event was Judge Raymond Gross, who spoke about his great respect and admiration for those community members who dedicate themselves tirelessly to ensure that the children who are involved in the dependency system have a voice in court proceedings. Also present were numerous guardian ad litem program staff members, who also commended the volunteers for their effective advocacy and compassion for the plight of vulnerable children in Pinellas County.

She was one of four Americans selected through the nonprofit and nonpartisan American Council on Germany for its McCloy Fellowship in Urban Affairs. This people-to-people exchange allowed Plantamura to learn about economic development and sustainability strategies in German municipalities. She met with hosts from the German Association of Cites,and local government and nongovernmental organization leaders in the cities of Cologne, Dusseldorf, Oldenburg, Berlin, Munich and Cottbus, which is in former eastern Germany near Poland. Plantamura witnessed the mining of brown coal, viewed North Sea wind turbines, and heard plans for subway construction and BMW manufacturing, learning that environmental sustainability is a major factor in Germanys energy goals. The country is clearly in a massive energy transition, Plantamura said. Germany is on track in its plans to become one of the most energy-efficient, and environmentally sound economies in the world. This even while maintaining competitive energy prices, along with a high level of prosperity for its people. She plans to speak about her time in Germany at the March meeting of the Seminole Discussion Group on Recycling and Sustainability, which meets at the Seminole Community Library, 9200 113th St. Photos courtesy of PATRICIA PLANTAMURAAbove, Councilor Patricia Plantamura visits the brown coal mining district near Cottbus, Germany.

There also will be honorable mention awards. Plus, everybody that participates in the parade will receive a medallion, said Stayer. As in past years, the boats will make their way south past the Holiday Isles Elks Lodge to Johns Pass, arriving at noon. From there, the parade goes south past the Isle of Capri and Isle of Palms before turning around at the Treasure Island Causeway for the trip north back to Legion Post 273. Shortly after the parade arrives at Johns Pass, there will be a number of activities on the boardwalk. Volunteers will be selling Tshirts and announcing the skippers as they pass by. Spectators are encouraged to vote for their favorite boat and watch the parade from outside Scullys on the boardwalk. Other public vantage points include Legion Post 273 and Holiday Isles Elks Lodge. This years parade will salute the U.S. Coast Guard and will feature a separate division of boat competition among veterans organizations, such as the DAV, AMVETS, Legion and Elks. Among the best public vantage points to view the parade are the Legion Post, Madeira Park (next to Tom Stuart Causeway), the Elks Lodge and Johns Pass where boats and their skippers will be introduced over the public address system. Captain Steve Tours of Madeira Beach will again provide the judges boat. Prize sponsors this year are Navy Federal Credit Union and Mr. Electric. An awards presentation will be held Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at Post 273. The annual Veterans Boat Parade gives boaters an opportunity to display their patriotism. This years event is Nov. 9, beginning at American Legion Post 273 in Madeira Beach.Photo by BOB McCLURE Photo courtesy of JEFF HARRINGAmy Miller reunited with Lt.

Pinellas County Commissioners discussed the details of a referendum question Oct. 29 that would allow residents to vote yes or no to levy a transportation surtax of 1 percent to replace the current funding method of ad valorem (property) tax. County Attorney Jim Bennett provided the commission with a memo of the decision points to be made during the work session. The first was the amount of the tax 1 percent or up to 1 percent. All but Commissioner Norm Roche voted in favor of 1 percent. Roche voted no to all the questions about the ballot language. Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority CEO Brad Miller said 1 percent is necessary for PSTA to fulfill its financial plan, which was recently vetted by a third party consultant. Miller said PSTA would like the new tax to take effect Jan. 1, 2016, to zero out property tax on Oct. 1, 2015, so citizens dont have to pay both taxes at the same time. We would float on reserves until Jan. 1, 2016, he said. Commissioners have the responsibility to specify the uses for the new tax. The consensus was to restrict the use to expenses necessary to improve and expand the current bus system, add bus rapid transit and a light rail system, as specified by Greenlight Pinellas, as well as operations and maintenance of the system. Interlocal agreements between the county, its municipalities and PSTA could dictate how the money from the tax is shared. Bennett said the commission could decide to act as a pass-through for the money or simply act as a pass-through to PSTA. He said the commission might want to reserve some authority on the timing of the release of funds. The consensus was to pass 100 percent of the money to PSTA and hold an annual meeting between the commission and PSTA to discuss how the money was spent. PSTA will remain liable for its operations and the county will simply act as the funding mechanism, the same as it does with Penny for Pinellas funds dispersed to municipalities. County Administrator Bob LaSala is concerned about unknown costs for related expenses, such as utility relocation, right of way acquisition and changes to the traffic signal system. He talked about joint-use facilities and land zoning differences between jurisdictions in relation to stations and support system for light rail and bus rapid transit. Bennett said Greenlight Pinellas, which is the overall plan to improve the transportation system, calls for utility relocation to follow the method used by the Florida Department of Transportation, which means the expense would be paid by the utility, not PSTA. The county could end up on the hook for the expense of relocations involving the Utility Department. Bennett said countys financial adviser needed to review the plan. This could get expensive very quickly, he said. Miller said experts working on the Greenlight Pinellas plan had tried to consider as many expenses as possible, including those mentioned by LaSala. However, everyone agreed there would be unknowns. Miller said it was PSTAs intention to work with the county on any issues. Bennett said the commission also had to decide whether to specify an ending date for the tax or to ask voters to approve continuing the 1 percent charge until repealed. A repeal of the tax, however, is unlikely unless another funding source is found to pay for operations and maintenance of transit systems. The plan calls for bus improvements to begin right away with bus expansions finished and in service by 2021. Rail planning isnt scheduled to start until 2018, with construction slated to begin in 2021. Rail service would begin in 2024. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that the plan covers 35 years and suggested that after all the infrastructure is completed, not as much money would be required. Miller said since the surtax would become PSTAs only funding source, it would be needed to pay all future operations and maintenance costs, which are currently unknown. Some of the cost of construction for improved bus system and light rail is expected to come from state and federal grants. All parties insist that the ballot language be transparent, direct and easily understood. PSTA released a draft of proposed ballot language, as See GREENLIGHT, page 8A

County newsCDC launches Water and Health StudyThe Centers for Disease Control and Pinellas County Utilities launched the CDC Water and Health Study Oct. 28. The study, which will take place over the next six months in Pinellas County Utilities water service areas, is part of a larger research project that will help public health researchers better understand the links between water use and health in communities across the United States. Pinellas County Utilities is volunteering to work with the CDC on this important project. During the study, the CDC team will mail selected Pinellas County Utilities water customers a survey that asks about their water use and health. The survey can either be completed on paper or online using a secure website. Selected residents will not be contacted by phone or email. Being selected for the study does not mean that there is anything unusual about water service in the area, and water service will not be changed in any way as result of the study. Most water utility customers will not be contacted. Pinellas County is pleased to partner with the CDC in this important project to improve understanding of water use and health in communities across the U.S. said Robert M. Powell, director of the Pinellas County Utilities Water and Sewer division.

Deputy shoots suspected firearms dealerLARGO A Pinellas County Sheriffs Deputy shot a St. Petersburg man suspected of illegally dealing in firearms about 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. According to the sheriffs report, Deputy Bill Hartigan, a member of the Sheriffs Community Policing Unit, learned that a suspect was headed to the Suburban Lodge Motel, 6500 Ulmerton Road, to conduct a sale of firearms. Along with other law enforcement personnel, Hartigan set up surveillance around the motel. When the suspect arrived, he backed his vehicle into a space near the rear of the motels parking lot. Hartigan approached the driver and ordered him out of the car several times. The suspect refused Hartigans instructions and eventually began driving his vehicle forward. As he drove forward, the suspect reached in his waistband as if to retrieve a weapon. Fearing for his safety and the safety of other law enforcement present, Hartigan shot the suspect several times. Upon further investigation, deputies discovered the suspect, identified as Anthony Antonio Newkirk, 32, was in possession of multiple firearms. Newkirk was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for the gunshot wounds. Newkirk was reportedly in stable condition Saturday afternoon. He was charged with a felony in possession of a firearm, possession of cocaine and felony habitual traffic offender. Bond was set at $17,000. As a routine measure, Hartigan, an employee with the Sheriffs Office since April 2007, will be placed on paid administrative leave. Detectives with the Sheriffs Robbery Homicide Unit are investigating.Motorcyclist dies after crash on 78th AvenuePINELLAS PARK A motorcyclist died Oct. 31 in a single-vehicle crash that occurred in the 5900 block of 78th Avenue in Pinellas Park.

The motorcycle then struck a curb on the south side of the road, also hitting a utility pole, which was severed in half. Golden was ejected from the motorcycle. He then slid along the roadway before becoming trapped under a parked vehicle in a vacant lot. Officers unsuccessfully tried to free Golden, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Regardless of what takes place from this point forward, the fishing has been nothing short of magical at times both inshore and offshore. Another weak cold front pushed through the area over last weekend and with another making its way through by this weekend we can only assume that this will be a consistent pattern for the time being. Usually I would say that it takes a few days for the fish to begin to actively feed again, however with the water temp sitting at a crisp 71 to 73 degrees, as long as the bait remains in the area the fish are showing no signs of slowing down. Inshore the bite has been lights out, if youre a live bait angler theres no reason that you cant keep a rod bent almost the entire day. Redfish, trout, Spanish mackerel are top targets with jack crevalle, ladyfish and the occasional bluefish being by-catch. The pattern is simple; as long as we have an east wind look for the bait to be stacked right up tight along the beach. Then targeting the lower incoming tide, set yourself up along an edge, whether its a spoil island or a sandbar on the outer edge of a grass flat, as long as the water is semi-clean it wont take long to chum up a bite. These fish are all looking to put on some weight in anticipation of the upcoming winter and once they sense a feeding frenzy in the area they will find you. Offshore, we had some real spurts of greatness last week prior to the front coming through. Conditions were perfect for near-shore kingfishing. Schools of small Spanish mackerel and jack crevalle have been corralling giant pods of micro bait, as they push the bait to the surface and crash it; the door is open for the kingfish to take advantage of their gluttony. Theres few things cooler than putting out a 14-inch bait and watching it get absolutely smoked right on the surface, then watching the line evaporate from the spool. Look for these small windows to occur 2 to 3 days after the front passes through and the seas settle again.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

Bay Pines VAHCS was recognized for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions. The clinical processes focus on care for heart attack, pneumonia, surgery, childrens asthma, stroke and venous thromboembolism, as well as inpatient psychiatric services. New this year is a category for immunization for pneumonia and influenza. Bay Pines is one of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. to earn the honor for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Bay Pines was recognized for its achievement on the following measure sets heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical care. The ratings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2012 calendar year. The list of Top Performer organizations represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure performance data for 2012. To earn the honor, hospitals must achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures, achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there are at least 30 denominator cases, and have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice examples include giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery, or providing a home management plan of care for children with asthma. Bay Pines VA Healthcare System and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improvement and they should be proud of their achievement, said Dr. Mark R. Chassin, president and chief executive officer of The Joint Commission. We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the Top Performer distinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients. We understand that what matters most to patients at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System is safe, effective care, said Suzanne M. Klinker, director of Bay Pines. Thats why Bay Pines VA Healthcare System has made a commitment to accreditation and to positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes. Bay Pines VA Healthcare System is proud to receive the distinction of being a Joint Commission Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. In addition to being included in todays release of The Joint Commissions Bay Pines is one of the nations leading VA healthcare systems, employing more than 3,500 medical professionals and support staff dedicated to providing the very best care to veterans in southwest Florida. It is accredited by The Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The healthcare system is also a three-time winner of the Robert W. Carey Circle of Excellence Award, the VAs top honor for quality achievement. Bay Pines VAHCS treats approximately 100,000 veterans each year. Health updatesAll Childrens Hospital named top performerST. PETERSBURG The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America, recently named All Childrens Hospital a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. All Childrens was recognized for exemplary performance in its pediatric measure: childrens asthma care. All Childrens is the only childrens hospital in Florida to earn this distinction. Our success is based on physicians, nurses and other clinicians whose commitment to patientand family-centered care and evidencebased practice results in outstanding treatment and leads to improved health for our regions children, said Jonathan M. Ellen, M.D., in a press release. Ellen is president and physician in chief at All Childrens Hospital and professor of pediatrics and vice dean at All Childrens Hospital for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Childhood asthma is a leading cause of hospitalization among children, resulting in children missing school and activities, and parents having to miss work, Ellen said. We do more than provide excellent treatment when a child is admitted with an asthma attack we also provide education for patients and parents aimed at successful management of asthma symptoms in order to prevent readmission to the hospital. All Childrens is one of three Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals to be named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. earned this designation as adult hospitals that consistently and at a very high level follow best practices for treating people who require surgery or suffer heart attacks, heart failure, stroke, pneumonia or other serious conditions.Back N Balance to host toy driveDUNEDIN Back N Balance, 1059 Broadway, Suite C, will host a toy drive Dec. 16-20.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, November 7, 2013We are the Rabid Existentialists. For an hour or so on Wednesday nights at a local pub, we play trivia, along with other teams, such as the Beer Busters, the Losers and William Shatner Face. We suspect that a couple of teams cheat because some of their players text or talk on their cell phones during the Trivia Night. Thats a no-no but so far no indictments have been issued. Im quite certain though they will get their comeuppance; theyll have a free ride to hell when they die. When our team is at full strength, we have about eight or nine players with varied backgrounds. As far as I know, none of us have criminal records. Our captain, Paul, has a strong background in linguistics, leading me to believe that he came up with the name Rabid Existentialists, which, defined, has something to do with philosophy. Or maybe its another television show about zombies. Guess I should ask Paul. Our forte seems to be history and geography, since we have two high school history teachers on our team. Not sure what Im bringing to the table, other than useless nostalgic brain debris, such as the fact Who Put the Bomp in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp, was recorded by Barry Mann in about 1961. Oh, God, here we go; now I cant get that song out of my head. Damn earworms. Conspicuous by his absence lately has been Factual John, who seems to know a lot on about a wide range of topics, such as the Manhattan Project, guns and rocketry. Makes me wonder, though, if existentialism is his true calling. We seem to get a lot of questions about astronomy. Dont know much about that, other than the fact my friends cat is named Copernicus. Or is it Picasso? Cant seem to get my facts straight. Quarrels over questions are common. Since theres a time limit to answer each question, Paul sometimes will end the debate by calling for an informal vote. Recently, we disagreed over which ice cream store chain opened first BaskinRobbins or Dairy Queen? Our answer was correct Dairy Queen. What ensued was a 20-minute debate on which chain makes the best ice cream. One of the team members said McDonalds makes the best ice cream. Thats blasphemy. Dont worry, though. I hear hes walking again. Fortunately, some questions quickly get a consensus. A couple of weeks ago, trivia teams were asked whose candidacy is known for Tippecanoe and Tyler, too I looked at one of my teammates, a history teacher, and we simultaneously whispered William Henry Harrison to Paul. Then, of course, we had to discuss Harrison at length, both noting that Harrisons presidency was the shortest in history just over a month because he died in office. He also gave the longest inaugural address in history, my teacher friend said. Still hours shorter then Tea Party Face Ted Cruzs speech, I said to myself. Didnt want to start a political debate while we were on a winning streak. One of my so-called friends, Jim, questioned whether I was indeed a University of Florida graduate when I botched a question about the last time the Gators had won a national championship in football. Im still beating myself up over that answer, which may have cost us first place that night. Singing Who Put the Bomps in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp over and over, though, seems to help me get past it. When Paul is gone, we are a rudderless ship. We appointed Jim captain recently, but since none of us could spell existentialism which was necessary to submit a name for our team we decided to come up with a new team name for the evening. How about the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald? I suggested, in reference to the direction our team was going. No takers. We settled on Paulless at the Pub. The match went downhill fast that night. Some players turned their attention to the Red Sox and Cardinals World Series game. Surprised there wasnt an argument over who had the best beard on the field. I was praying for another question about the Gators, to redeem myself. A couple of teammates defected, opting to play Jinga with Snickers bars. We need help. If you would like to join the Rabid Existentialists, please email me your credentials. I can assure you the process will be less painful than qualifying for Obamacare. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email tgermond@TBNweekly.com. The ideal situation for a writer (lets call him Cox) who wishes to really crank out a lot of words in a short time is a prison cell. Outside the cell is an armed guard either male or female hired by Coxs publisher to shoot Cox if he fails to meet the required deadline. In the cell is a sink with running water for Cox to splash into his face. In one corner is a toilet. Just inside the cell door is a table with coffee, re-supplied every hour or so by the armed guard. Cox writes on a computer or on a yellow legal pad, as he prefers. Beside him is an alarm clock, as a reminder of how much time remains for him to complete his daily output of words before the armed guard blows Coxs brains out. Another excellent writing inspiration is Coxs checkbook or bank statement, which shows a balance of $124.80. This is the average life savings for the typical writer, including some of the most successful ones. Edgar Allan Poe and George Orwell were classic examples of impecunious scribblers who were driven not just by their obsession with writing but also their need to buy food, alcohol, drugs or available women. A good piece of advice for most beginning writers is Marry money. A clamorous newsroom with tight deadlines hanging over reporters and editors has always been a setting for plentiful writing. But once I left daily newspaper work I persuaded myself that peace and quiet are my absolute requirements for productive writing. However, I kept hearing of writers who refused to work without music as a companion. A few days ago I strapped on a set of earbuds, switched on my iPod and entered a wonderful new world: the combination of words and music. I wont assume that listening to Beethoven and Willie Nelson as I write will be a major help for me, but it will make writing much less lonely, and therefore more enjoyable. Novelists and other big-book writers sometimes get so sick of their current projects that they write for the sheer desire to finish the dadblamed thing and send it off to their agent or publisher. I know the feeling. Ive started at least 20 novels, but have completed none of them. Im neither proud nor ashamed of that fact. Writing is similar to raising a child. You are responsible for creating a piece of work, but you soon learn that the work seems to have a mind of its own. It may stay with you for years, or it may suddenly fade away and never be heard from again. Im writing this column under less-thanideal circumstances. Outside, a team of treetrimmers is assaulting large limbs overhanging the street. They have buzz saws capable of felling giant redwoods or even the Washington Monument. The sound of the power saws makes me wish I was in the prison cell I referred to, above. Adding to the din today is the barking of three dogs, either owned or under the temporary care of my sweetheart Liz, with whom I am residing during one of my frequent visits to Pinellas County. Her own dog is a miniature schnauzer, Max, whose ancestors were trained to attack anyone or anything that came within 600 yards of home base. Fierce barking and snarling became part of the genetic package; Max is powerless not to respond in that way, until Liz sprays him with cold water, out of sheer desperation. The other two dogs are Annabelle and Mariana. They are younger and larger than Max, and are delighted to follow Maxs raucous lead each time a UPS or garbage truck, squirrel or tree surgeon appears out front. Its an impressive chorus, a marvelous accompaniment for the words you are now reading. Its fun to read about the quirks and customs that writers have used to help them get the words out of their brains and onto paper or screen. Sir Walter Scott wrote poetry while riding on horseback. The poet Friedrich Schiller kept a supply of rotting apples in his desk. He said the odor stimulated him. Agatha Christie also used apples as a writing aid. She chomped on them while writing in the bathtub. John Steinbeck was a fanatic about having 12 sharpened pencils at his side as he wrote. Setting a daily quota has been an aid to many writers. Jack London said he wrote 1,000 words every day of his adult life. Stephen King aims for 2,000 words each day, and refuses to use adverbs. You can find many more examples of writers habits at brainpickings.org.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Florida tourism conjures images of theme parks, resort hotels, state parks and the finest beaches the world has to offer. Sailfish, marlins and mackerel dont immediately come to mind, but recreational fishing is an important part of the tourism industry in Florida, too. Florida is uniquely positioned to attract visitors to the state for recreational fishing, as our natural fresh and salt waterways are truly world-famous. Each year, millions of Americans and international visitors come to Florida to spend time fishing on our waterways. Florida leads the nation in total angler expenditures, where nearly $5 billion was spent just last year. According to a recent report by the Florida TaxWatch Center for Competitive Florida, Florida: The Fishing Capital of the World, more than 80,200 jobs result from the states recreational fishing industry. More than half of the money that enters Floridas economy from the fishing industry is spent on trip-related expenses, such as food, lodging and transportation, which benefit the traditional tourism industry. This considerable economic impact does not include the commercial fishing industry, which provides its own tremendous value to Floridas economy, and supports thousands of Florida jobs. The demand for quality fishing already exists, and Florida should make the most of it. Did you know that approximately 46 million Americans fish, which is more than those who play golf and tennis combined? There are many opportunities for tourism expansion in Florida, but recreational fishing is one that continues to steadily grow. The number of people fishing in the Sunshine State grew by 24 percent, from 2006-2011. In response to this growth, Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission recently added four additional Florida license-free fishing days through 2013: Oct. 12, Nov. 29-30, and Dec. 28. License-free fishing days encourage visitors and residents alike to participate in this multi-billion industry. From now on, Florida will host eight license-free fishing days each year. While Florida leaders have already recognized the importance of state waterways for global competitiveness by putting substantial investments into our seaports, they must also keep in mind the role that our waterways have in positioning Florida to compete in the global tourism sector through recreational and competitive fishing. Already the nationwide leader in recreational fishing, prioritizing the investment and growth of the fishing industry would maximize potential tourism revenues and help sustain and strengthen Florida as the global destination for anglers who want to experience the worlds premier competitive fishing. There are hundreds of competitive fishing events held around the U.S. and the globe that could likely be readily relocated to Florida waters, bringing even more visitors to the Sunshine State each year. Floridas water resources present incredible economic opportunities for the state, but Florida leaders must consider how these resources can be used to maximize their impact. Expansions of Floridas recreational fishing industry is a promising opportunity to diversify the use of Floridas water resources and continue to grow and diversify Floridas economy. Dominic M.

Calabro Florida tourism gets hooked on the joys of fishingA misapplication of talentEditor: The Oct. 17 Beach Beacon contained an article concerning the plan of St. Pete Beach to contract with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office for a deputy to be dedicated to code enforcement as has been done in Madeira Beach. I have little doubt that action on reported violations has improved and likely incentive for compliance, particularly as pertains to the new chronic nuisance code. By my observation, initiative for enforcement in other code areas, not so much. It should be noted that the city contract for law enforcement services, initiated in 1995, contained the provision the sheriff shall bring appropriate charges for violations of all laws and ordinances and accordingly, such sworn officers of the sheriff are hereby vested with the power to enforce ordinances of the city. It would seem that this has never been effectively applied except perhaps for the occasional noise complaint. The point of this letter is to express the view that use of an expensively trained law enforcement officer for code enforcement activity is a serious misapplication of talent. At over $90,000 per year, this would fund at least two full-time city employees. Richard J. Lewis Madeira BeachCut the right wing extremists adriftEditor: Admission to the Grand Old Party has for far too long been extended by invitation only. This has resulted in a myopic, monochromatic agenda, one authored and driven by a narrow and select minority. Because of this they now find themselves increasingly isolated from Main Street America and the concerns of ordinary citizens, including many of their own constituents. Worse they continue to plod forward on this path in spite of the fact it is obvious, even to outsiders, that their inwardly focused views have the potential to alter the future of their party and the dynamics of American politics in a way that will prove irreversible. It is their collective reluctance to change that has left them floundering in desperation, a circumstance entirely of their own making. To illustrate this point, for openers their legislative record and their political agenda for the past 50 or so years have served to solidify in the minds of millions of Americans the Republican Party is the party of white male Americans, the wealthy and the influential. Rather than taking steps to alter this perception, they forge ahead Plan, a plan that was dictated by their far right extreme element. The need for a fall back Plan B seems never to have occurred to them. In the long run all that this will accomplish is to drive a wedge between Republican rank and file and their dissonant element, something both divisive and destructive. At the same time it alienates that new and ever expanding social and political demographic outside their party at a time many of them are searching for political affiliation and are being aggressively courted by the Democrats. I refer to those people destined to soon represent the majority in America. This includes women, Blacks, Hispanics and the other disparate groups representative of a new and thriving United States. Republicans, by historically denying these people access to their tent, are inadvertently driving them into the camp of their adversary. In fact in all probability it is already too late for them to change. However, they must still make the effort if they hope to survive as a party, and they have precious little time to lose. Should those running the party fail to convince the faithful they must reach out, accommodating and embracing this expanding demographic, I fear the days of the Republican Party as a relative factor in American politics is about to come to an abrupt end. It is highly probable the only way to rectify the situation is to cut the right wing extremists adrift, in the process coalescing the remaining members into a new and more centrist party. This new party must then replace the dogmatic members forced out, those tails that for too long wagged the dog, with pragmatic leaders who will develop an agenda more responsive to the needs of the new centrist moderate base they will then come to represent. What is vital for all Americans to consider is this is not only important to Republicans that they salvage their party, it is important to all Americans, including Democrats. The worst possible scenario would be one that resulted in the demise of the two party system that has served this nation so well for so long. Theirs is a voice we all need. Robert A.

TORRESLARGO Principal Brad Finkbiner has ambitious goals for the designs of Largo High Schools new building. We want to be the prototypical high school for other schools to model, not only in Florida, but the United States, he said recently. Its going to be a tremendous amount of work, but I think itll be worth it. The Pinellas County School Board approved a $3.6 million agreement with the chosen architect company, Harvard Jolly, Oct. 22. Construction is estimated to cost $47.8 million. Over the next three years, the board has budgeted a total of $59.1 million for the entirety of the project, including the design, furniture, equipment and technology to be installed. The current building for the nearly 100-year-old high school was constructed in 1957. Its been a good building for as long as it could, but it needs to be updated, Finkbiner said. Were really looking into doing some really great things with it, so it will be standing for the next 40 to 50 years. Finkbiner said hes been meeting with the architectures every Wednesday to plan for the transition and lay out a vision for the new campus. Harvard Jolly hopes to have the design completed by the end of the school year. The plan is to move classrooms into 45 to 60 portables, set up primarily on the schools baseball field, over the summer and begin demolition of the current campus in the fall of 2014, Finkbiner said. The high school would use the closed Largo Central Elementary School, which sits to the southeast of the campus, as the administration building. The schools ExCEL magnet program, currently housed at Largo Central, also would move to portables. One of the wings of the high school would remain open for science labs and classrooms not easily transitioned into portables. Construction will take a little less than two years and be completed by July 1, 2016, according to current estimates. The school would move into the new building over the summer and be ready to open by August 2016 Thats what the architects tell me, Finkbiner said. I need no big weather coming in. Prospective construction companies for the project were scheduled to give presentations this week, with a selected company secured by Thanksgiving break, Finkbiner said. Until the design is complete, the construction company will be focused on planning the temporary campus. Finkbiner said he has four goals for the new Largo High School campus: efficient transitions in between classes, safety and security, readiness for the technology of the next several decades and, most importantly, student achievement. We really want to look forward, he said. This building needs to be built for the year 2050, instead of 2017, because the building will still be standing at that time. School administration and the architects are at the beginning of discussing how those goals will play out in the buildings design. Finkbiner said he has to consider if, for example, future Largo High School students will need hookups for tablets rather than places to keep their textbooks. Im interested what (the architects) come up with, he said. The school also is working with Largo police, to address school safety, as well as the citys planners, as the architects consider which street the school will face and how student drop off might be designed to be more efficient and safe. Another piece that the school is still researching is where the schools sports teams will play in the transition. The football stadium will continue to house the football, track, soccer and flag football programs during construction. But Finkbiner said he was working with the city of Largo and others in the district to find a temporary home for baseball, basketball and softball. The football stadium will get an upgrade to its setup, to rearrange the flow of fans, and possibly add new field turf, depending on what money is left over, Finkbiner said. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESPrincipal Brad Finkbiner shows a concept design for a potential courtyard in the new Largo High School. The final design of the replacement building, scheduled to be built starting in late 2014, is not yet completed.After the main construction, the school is looking to tear down the Largo Central Elementary building to make way for a new baseball and softball field, creating a sports complex in that corner of campus. We wanted to make sure as many sports as we could have on campus, Finkbiner said. Officials havent decided if the school auditorium will be replaced, but the historic baseball field house will remain. We wanted to maintain the thread of history that Largo High has always had, Finkbiner commented. We want the community to be proud of this school. Staff, the Parent Teacher Student Association and the student group Largo Leadership will have input into the project. Finkbiner said the students which number a little more than 1,700 have mixed emotions about the impending construction. Theyre anxious about it, being in portables for a couple of years. But again, I think theyre excited about the opportunity that were going to be building such a great school, and they will be part of it, he said. Enrollment numbers might go down during the two years of construction, he admitted. But Finkbiner encouraged parents to stick with the school and the great programs it offered. The new building will be designed to hold a student body of 1,850 to 2,000. Finkbiner said he decided to become principal of Largo High to help foster in the newly authorized International Baccalaureate program and because he knew the school would be upgrading its campus. I knew it was coming. I came here because of the opportunity to build a school, he said. Were really beginning to put Largo High School on the map. He added that he anticipates staying until we have this mission accomplished, namely to make the Largo High the finest high school in the nation. Im just honored to help guide Largo to the next level. We have lofty goals, but I certainly think we are building a team that will meet them, Finkbiner said. The community deserves it, certainly the staff and our kids deserve it.

In an unexpected turn of events, Richard had successful surgery Oct. 24 for a degenerative eye disease called keratoconus, said Diana Flory, who, along with her husband, Ed, spearheaded efforts to bring the girl to the United States for treatment. She came through like a trooper, Diana said in a telephone conversation. Diana was calling from California and was expected to fly back home to Seminole with Richard and her father Friday night. The specialist who performed the surgery was Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler of Beverly Hills, Calif. The Florys said Richard originally was expected to undergo two procedures in six months, but that will not be necessary based on the doctors treatment. Its just overwhelming and a blessing beyond belief that this has happened, not only that it has happened that quickly but that her vision was so bad and that this (keratoconus) had progressed so rapidly, Ed Flory said. The Florys also learned that an anonymous donor has funded the remainder of the costs, originally pegged at about $17,000 for both procedures. There have been all kinds of wonderful happenings here that have impacted this little girl, she said. Diana said there are no words to express the gratitude to Wachler that Richards family and she felt after the procedure. She told Wachler that he gave Richard back her life. Nicey can see. They (the doctors staff) asked her what time it was and she looked at the clock and told them, Diana said. They asked her if she realized that she had just read the clock, something that was totally impossible an hour before. The look on her face told us she had not even realized it. On the way back to the hotel she told us that the green light was too bright so I am sure it will take her a while to adjust to all the changes in her vision. Wachler pioneered the Holcomb C3-R procedure that is named after Steve Holcomb, an Olympic bobsledder who was legally blind due to keratoconus until Wachler treated him. A similar procedure was used to treat Richard along with the use of insertible contact lens. In addition, Richard is severely nearsighted, which might require her to use a soft contact lens over the insertible lenses. Nevertheless, Wachler said theres a 99 percent chance that she will never have to undergo a procedure again for keratoconus. As a member of the First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks Beach, Diana Flory went to St. Lucia on a mission trip in 2007 and first met Richard at a church function. She began to notice that Richards eyes were causing her problems around Easter 2012 as she watched the girl read her part for a program. Diana contacted Tampa Bay Newspapers in June about her efforts to raise funds for Richards medical and travel expenses while she was staying with the Florys. The Florys had a benefit concert and a garage sale to raise money for Richards expenses. Ed Flory said that people sent donations to them after they read about Richards plight in Tampa Bay Newspapers articles. Richard will stay with the Florys for about another week. Television crews interviewed Richard Oct. 24, Diana said. Everybody kept saying what a sweet little girl she was, Diana said. What huge things she is going to do one day.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:About TimeGenre: Comedy Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Margot Robbie Director: Richard Curtis Rated: R At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time. The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tims father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim cant change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life so he decides to make his world a better place ... by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means hes never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again and again but finally, after a lot of cunning time traveling, he wins her heart. Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches and to save his best friend from professional disaster. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift cant save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous, too.

In the aftermath of Marvels Thor and Marvels The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos ... but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Thor: The Dark World is based on Marvels classic superhero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book Journey into Mystery, Issue 83, in August 1962.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.A Case of YouGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Evan Rachel Wood, Justin Long, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Busy Philipps, Brendan Fraser, Sienna Miller and Vince Vaughn Director: Kat Coiro Not rated A young writer (Justin Long) woos a cute and quirky barista (Evan Rachel Wood) by studying her Facebook profile and making himself into the man of her dreams. When she falls for his alter ego, he must keep up the act or risk losing her.The Armstrong LieGenre: Documentary Cast: Lance Armstrong Director: Alex Gibney Rated: R In 2008, Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney set out to make a documentary about Lance Armstrongs comeback to the world of competitive cycling. Widely regarded as one of the most prominent figures in the history of sports, Armstrong had brought global attention to cycling as the man who had triumphed over cancer and went on to win bicyclings greatest race, the Tour de France, a record seven consecutive times. Charting Armstrongs life-story (and given unprecedented access to both the tour and the man), Gibney began filming what he initially envisioned as the ultimate comeback story Armstrongs return from his 2005 retirement and his attempt to win his eighth tour. Indeed, more than just an athlete, Armstrong, through his inspiring personal narrative and charitable works, had come to embody nothing short of the possibilities of the human spirit itself. An unprecedented scandal, however, would rewrite both the Armstrong legend and Gibneys film. By early 2013, Lance Armstrong had admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs following a federal criminal investigation and an investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (in 2012 the USADA, in conjunction with the International Cycling Union, effectively stripped Armstrong of all seven of his previous titles and banned him from all sport for life). Setting out to chronicle a comeback, Alex Gibneys The Armstrong Lie instead emerges as a riveting insiders view, chronicling the collapse of one of the greatest legends of our time. As Lance Armstrong tells Gibneys camera: I didnt live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.Best Man DownGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Justin Long, Tyler Labine, Jess Weixler, Addison Timlin, Frances OConnor and Shelley Long Director: Ted Koland Rated: PG-13 When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (Tyler Labine) unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin (Jess Weixler) and Scott (Justin Long) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpys body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds path leads them to a 15-year-old girl (Addison Timlin) in a small, northern Minnesota town all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.The Book ThiefGenre: Drama Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Sophie Nlisse Director: Brian Percival Rated: PG-13 Based on the beloved bestselling novel, The Book Thief tells the inspiring story of a spirited and courageous young girl named Liesel, who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany. For Liesel, the power of words and of imagination becomes a means of escape and even joy from the tumultuous events enveloping her and everyone she knows and loves. She is the heart and soul of The Book Thief. Indeed, it is heart and soul as well as triumph and perseverance that drive the film, which is rich in themes and characters that will resonate for every generation. A moving and poignant portrait of the resiliency of the human spirit, this life-affirming tale contrasts innocence (as embodied by Liesel) with the pervasive tyranny that marked the times and her homeland.Great ExpectationsGenre: Drama Cast: Jeremy Irvine, Holliday Grainger, Robbie Coltrane, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes Director: Mike Newell Rated: PG-13 Young orphan Pip is given a chance to rise from his humble beginnings thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Moving through Londons class ridden world as a gentleman, Pip uses his new found position to pursue the beautiful Estella; a spoilt heiress hes loved since childhood. Yet the shocking truth behind his great fortune will have devastating consequences for everything he holds dear.How I Live NowGenre: Romance, science fiction and thriller Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland, George MacKay and Anna Chancellor Director: Kevin Macdonald Rated: R Set in the near-future UK, Saoirse Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

A&E newsFlorida Highwayman to visit art societyPINELLAS PARK The Pinellas Park Art Society will welcome one of the original Florida Highwaymen on Saturday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd. Artist and legend Robert Lewis will demonstrate his techniques, discuss his work and feature works for sale. Lewis, who is still an active painter, is one of the surviving Florida Highwaymen.The Florida Highwaymen, a group of 26 African-Americans, broke convention to paint beautiful iconic Florida landscapes. Originating in the mid-1950s, an era marked by racism and poverty, these selftaught entrepreneurs mentored each other while they painted on basic materials like Upson board for canvasses, and crown molding for frames. Local galleries shunned their work, so they peddled their art from car trunks along area roadways, hence their name. Their art freed them from work in citrus groves and labor camps, and they created a body of work that has become not only a timeless collection of a natural environment, but a symbol of determination and belief in oneself. The surviving Highwaymen, now in their 60s and 70s, are an important chapter in Americas culture and history. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at Roes Deli, located inside Park Station. For information, call 204-4256 or visit pinellasart.com.Voters to decide 2014 Gecko Ball theme GULFPORT Organizers of Gulfports annual Gecko Ball are encouraging the public to vote now on the theme of next years event.

The Eight OClock Theatre production of La Cage aux Folles, a musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman, runs through Nov. 17 at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 for adults and $12.50 for students age 22 and younger with identification. A city of Largo handling charge of $3.50 will be added to each ticket. Call 5876793. The musical is based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret. The story focuses on a gay couple: Georges and Albin. Georges, the owner of a SaintTropez nightclub, and Albin, the main attraction of the nightclubs drag revue, have lived together for 20 years in un-wedded bliss. When Georges son Jean-Michel fathered during a one-night fling arrives and announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician, their lives are thrown into turmoil. Jean-Michel has invited the family of his bride-to-be for dinner and he would prefer to present Georges and his biological mother as his parents, while giving Albin who helped raise him the boot. Georges reluctantly agrees to the masquerade. Of course, things dont go quite as intended and Albin has his own plans. Michael Newton-Brown directed this production of La Cage aux Folles for Eight OClock Theatre. My first La Cage aux Folles was in the late 1980s at the old Showboat Dinner Theatre, writes Newton-Brown in his notes from the director. Who would have thought as I work my fifth La Cage we would culturally be where we are now. [The show] is a delightful tribute to family values, and is the first gay musical to break the cultural barrier. The show features excellent music and choreography as well as plenty of feathers and sequins. Its not the glitz that makes La Cage aux Folles so compelling though its the characters and the way they interact. James Grenelle stars as Albin. Grenelle is as much the star of this show as Albins diva Zaza is the star of St. Tropez drag nightclub. He delivers the anthem I Am What I Am with stunning sincerity and strength. He is equally equipped to handle the comical sequence in which Albin attempts to suppress his natural mannerisms and adopt, temporarily, a more machismo persona Uncle Albert using John Wayne as a template. Jerry Slutsky gives a solid performance as Georges. He is charming and charismatic as he opens the show with We Are What We Are, along with Les Cagelles. Outside of the spotlight, he is caring and kind. Slutsky plays Georges as a man caught in a quandary: No matter his choice of action, someone he loves will be hurt. The relationship between Georges and Albin is what gives La Cage aux Folles its soul. Slutzky and Grenelle capture that genuine tenderness and affection that must exist to make the production a success. Ryan Sturm portrays the ungrateful son Jean-Michel. Sturm brings more ingratitude to the role than is common and that is refreshing. The significance of Jean-Michels lack of appreciation for Albin is too often glossed over. Sturms Jean-Michel comes across as insincere and unlikable as he persuades Georges to brush aside his 20-year partner. Equally significant, of course, is the lesson the character learns and the fact that Albin instantly forgives Jean-Michels thoughtlessness and attempts to help him when his biological mother fails him (once again). In this way, La Cage aux Folles makes an important point about how families are defined not by biology but through love and affection. The show features many fine performers. As Jacob, Joe Southall steals his share of scenes. Christine Joyce does an excellent job playing Jaqueline, owner of a prestigious restaurant. Among the six Cagelles, Josh Duart cant help but stand out. Duart plays Hanna from Hamburg, a whip-cracking member of the ensemble who ends up in a relationship with Francis (Kyle Hill). Other Cagelles include Jennifer Finch, Jessica Ulbrich, Jay R. Goldberg, Jonathan Pouliot and Christopher Warren. Musically, the highlights of the show are A Little More Mascara and I Am What I Am, performed by Albin and Les Cagelles; Song on the Sand and Look Over There, performed by Georges; and a rousing rendition of The Best of Times, performed by Albin, Jacqueline and company. La Cage aux Folles is as much fun as it is endearing. Its theme of accepting others for what they are keeps it topical while its treasured score and eye-catching routines make it an enduring crowd-pleaser and Eight OClock Theatres delightful production is no exception.

The Seminole Malls new owners have recently acquired two nearby office buildings, while an unnamed buyer is lined up for the former Orange Blossom Groves property on Seminole Boulevard. The sale of the Seminole Office Center to North American Development Group closed Oct. 23, wrote Elliott Ross, managing director of Ross Realty, the propertys former owner, in an Oct. 30 email. Seminole Mall LP, a Delaware-based limited partnership that bought the ailing mall in October of 2012, is run out of NADGs Palm Beach office. The two office buildings, located at 7997 and 7999 113th St. N, sold for $1.95 million, Ross wrote in a second email, sent on Oct. 31. He also said that Ross Realty had to pay the new owners $25,000.The Greater Seminole Chamber of Commerce office and meeting space is located within one of these buildings.

He spoke at an Oct. 23 Rotary Club of Seminole meeting at Lake Seminole Country Club. Known as Hurricane Hole, the property is located between the Bay Pines medical facility and Madeira Beach Middle School. It will be accessible to the public, Chapin said. Its not just for the college, he said. Its a community resource. The Outdoor Learning Cloud will be the first portion of the project to be completed. By attaching sensors to various organisms throughout the property, visitors will be able to instantly learn about the historical and scientific details of Hurricane Hole through their mobile smart device. Underwater robots will also be used to continuously collect and stream data. Youll be able to walk around the property, point your smart device at that tree over there and the tree will talk to you, Chapin said. Some of the information made available will include meteorological, historical, biological, chemical and ecological data. The beauty of this is its continuously changing and growing, Chapin said. If a hurricane comes through and destroys parts of the area, the cloud will change and reflect that. Based on Pittsburghs Schenley Park, near Carnegie Mellon University, this research project will be completed over time by students and affect those studying in a variety of disciplines biology, chemistry, technology. This truly is a STEM project, Chapin said. Chapin hopes that work on this portion of the project, which will cost about $100,000 to $150,000 and will be funded by federal grants, will See REAL ESTATE, page 4APhoto by DARREN SUDNICKA beached 32-foot sperm whale flips its tail into the air briefly Oct. 31 before being euthanized by veterinarians from the University of Florida. By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County needs a new leader to represent local interests in the U.S. House of Representatives. A week after Rep. C.W. Bill Young was laid to rest, Gov. Rick Scott issued an executive order setting the date for a special election to fill the empty seat. Young represented House District 13 for 42 years. When he died, more than a year was left on his term. Until a new representative is elected, the majority of the county lacks one of its voices in Congress. House District 13 covers all of Pinellas, except a small area in south St. Petersburg plus one Gulfport precinct, and northernmost voting precincts that encompass Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, East Lake and one in Palm Harbor. Scotts executive order calls for a primary election on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014. The general election follows on Tuesday, March 11, which coincides with elections already scheduled in 16 of the countys 24 municipalities. This congressional district is entirely in Pinellas County and represents 75 percent of our voters, Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark said. We appreciate Gov. Scott issuing the executive order early and for approving the election schedule proposed by Gary Holland, assistant director of the Division of Elections. Clark said the schedule allows sufficient time for election preparation and allows time to mail ballots to our overseas and military voters 45 days prior to each election so they are not disenfranchised. Orange Blossom Groves on Seminole Boulevard. By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH Officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the University of Florida and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration performed a necropsy Nov. 1 on a 32-foot sperm whale that beached itself in shallow water off Madeira Beach a day earlier. The 5-ton, female whale was euthanized Oct. 31 and later towed to a remote spot at Fort De Soto beach where the necropsy took place. The remains were buried nearby. There were no firm results but officials said the whale had a long-term illness. Scientists found signs of a severe infection that they said the whale had for months. No cause for the infection or the type of infection has been determined. The whale was discovered shortly after sunrise Oct. 31 along a stretch of beach at 132nd Avenue in Madeira Beach. Shortly thereafter the sighting attracted large numbers of curious spectators, media, fire fighters and law enforcement and FWC officials. FWC officials said the whale was almost dead and severely emaciated. Its tail flipped in the air periodically before University of Florida veterinarians sedated the animal and later injected drugs to euthanize it. According to an FWC officer, the beached whale was the first along the Pinellas beaches since 2009 when another was discovered slightly north of Thursdays sighting.Whale necropsy indicates infection See HOUSE SEAT, page 4A See STEM, page 4A By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE For just this month, the Seminole Discussion Group on Recycling & Sustainability will meet at the Seminole Community Library on a new day at a new time Wednesday, Nov. 13, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. This is just the groups second gathering since reconvening following a three-month break over the summer. Typically, the group meets for two hours on the first Monday of each month, from 10 a.m. to noon, but this month its schedule got disrupted due to elections and other previously planned events. This is the perfect opportunity for those who are interested in the group but unable to attend Monday morning meetings to check it out, said Billie Jo Bell, who serves as co-president with Greg Plantamura. The information at these meetings is so incredible and the speakers are so phenomenal, Bell said. We wish more people could see this and be more aware of whats going on in their communities. She added, This is your environment. You only have one world. We live in such a disposable society. Novembers featured speaker is Lisa Yasco of the Edible Peace Patch Project. Past speakers have included Jeremy Hockenbury, Seminoles director of Public Works; local beekeepers; Barbara Arthur, Morning Star Fisherman; representatives from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; and Bill Embree, Pinellas County Utilities Solid Waste Administrator. Mary Hampton, a retired science teacher from New York, formed the group in 2009.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A STEM, from page 1Abegin within the next couple of months, starting with the planned nature trail and parking lot. Within a year, I hope the path is built and Im hoping to put other stuff in there, he said. The STEM hands-on learning center is the more ambitious portion of the plans for Hurricane Hole. Geared towards technology, marine and environmental science, the 10,000-square-foot center will be designed to serve students in middle through graduate school. It will include a classroom, space for small groups to meet, individual research labs, a conference center, a student research center and a faculty development center. In the lobby, marine specimens will be on display. In total, the center will cost around $4 million, Chapin said. About half of the funds are on hand, he added, and he hopes the state will help fund the rest. Plans for the center are still being discussed. An architect, who hasnt been officially hired to design the center, has provided conceptual sketches of what the center could look like. The two possibilities are a single-building design or a series of clustered buildings each with a different use. Chapin said he prefers the clustered-building design and it likely will be chosen. A year from now, I would love to see some construction going on, he said. He also stresses that the project is a true partnership. SPC is working with several other entities, including Admiral Farragut Academy, Florida Fish and Wildlife, the City of Seminole, the University of South Florida marine science department, Eckerd College, the Science Center of Pinellas County and the Pinellas County School District.September email. So far, the new owners have remained mum regarding plans for the mall property, which currently has several tenants remaining, including Stein Mart, Bealls, Ross and Radio Shack. In a previous interview, Dale Johnson, a project development director for the Tampa-based Primerica Group One, which has partnered with Seminole Mall LP on the project, said no plans are set for the property, but she hopes it will become a community anchor. It will be a wonderful downtown for people, she said, which is something Seminole doesnt have. Its still an ongoing process and theres tremendous interest. Its been a very positive process and will be very positive for the city and for everyone involved. Meanwhile, 5800 Seminole Blvd., the former home of Orange Blossom Groves, has a potential buyer and is under contract, said Corrine McCaffery via email. McCaffery is the listing coordinator for Sandy Hartmann & Associates, the Realtor handling the sale. And the buyer is doing their due diligence, McCaffery wrote. So far so good. She did not disclose the name of the buyer or potential use for the land. The property, which was put on the market in June by the family of citrus king Al Repetto, consists of six parcels of land totaling 9.2 acres, and is listed at $2.9 million, Hartmann said in June. Each parcel is zoned separately for its own land use. Five commercial lots, with a frontage on Seminole Boulevard, total 2.2 acres. The commercial portion of the property includes a 21,400-square-foot building as well as a 1,595-square-foot office and 3,900-square-foot retail store. Abutting the commercial land to the west are 7 acres formerly a small orange grove, Hartmann said zoned for residential use. The family would be willing to sell the commercial and residential portions separately, at $1.35 million and $1.55 million respectively, Hartmann said. Currently, Florida Citrus Country leases the commercial space and operates on the property on a seasonal basis. According to information supplied by the county Elections Office, voter registration deadlines, by law, are 29 days prior to any election. The deadline for the special primary election is Dec. 16, 2013 and Feb. 10, 2014 for the special election. Clark reminds voters that the state has closed primaries, so only voters registered with a political party may vote in that partys primary election. Any changes to party affiliations must be made 29 days prior to a primary election. Early voting is scheduled from Jan. 412, 2014 for the primary and March 1-9, 2014 for the special election. Registered voters will be able to vote between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday in any of the three Supervisor of Elections offices. No word was available from the Supervisor of Elections about mail ballots. Nancy Whitlock, Elections Supervisor, said staff was still working on the schedule. By law, ballots must be mailed at least 45 days prior for overseas and absent military voters. Ballots must be mailed to domestic voters between 35 and 28 days prior to Election Day.Candidate qualifyingCandidate qualifying period runs from 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18, through noon, Tuesday, Nov. 19. As of noon Monday, Nov. 4, the state Division of Elections had not added information about the program for 1,200 students, and after moving to the area in 2007, she made a presentation on recycling to the Seminole City Council. Those early meetings drew only a small handful of attendees, but the self-proclaimed Queen of Recycling strove to book high caliber speakers on a variety of topics: aquaponics, permaculture, solar energy, composting. Through word-of-mouth, interest in the group grew, and soon it was drawing more than 30 attendees each month, Hampton said It takes all of us to try to work and improve things, she said. It takes all of us to do every single, teeny tiny thing we can do and every big thing we can do. Hampton, who spends her summers in Vermont, stepped down as the groups leader after moving 105 miles north of Seminole to Sumter County. Ive loved doing this work, she said. Its going to take getting used to. The group is in good hands, though, she said. I think that Greg and Billie Jo are now forming their own team and theyre working hard to get good speakers, she added. We want [the group] to grow and we want it to become more of a countywide thing and not just Seminole, Bell said. Were also going to be getting involved with more business owners and bring in more businesses, perhaps.

REAL ESTATE, from page 1A HOUSE SEAT, from page 1Aelection or candidates to its website. Officials said no candidates had filed their paperwork. Democrat Alex Sink was the first candidate to announce that she is running since the governor set the election dates. Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30. I made this decision after careful consideration, Sink said. Everywhere I go, I hear the same sentiment from Floridians: Washington is broken. Look at what happened during the government shutdown. The people of Pinellas County I have talked to are angry they are frustrated that our leaders in Washington were unwilling to solve even the most basic of problems to keep our government running. What we saw earlier this month was unacceptable. Thats why Ive decided its time to get off the sidelines and do my part to start changing how we do business. Democrat Jessica Ehrlich, who has been campaigning to run in the November 2014 election, has not made an official announcement about the special election; however, her campaign is still active, according to recent news releases on her new website. On the Republican side, media reports say that David Jolly, Youngs former general counsel, has announced his candidacy and is backed by Youngs wife, Beverly. Former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has said he will not run, as has Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, former state Rep. Larry Crow and Youngs son, Billy. Among those reportedly still undecided are Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel, former Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard and former Pinellas County Commissioner Neil Brickfield. There was no word on Youngs brother, Tom, who also reportedly has said he might run. Young, 82, of Indian Shores, the nations longest serving Republican member of the U.S. Congress died Oct. 18, 2013. He was buried in Bay Pines Cemetery Oct. 24.Seminole native takes on The X FactorRachel Potter, a 2002 graduate of Seminole High School, is one of the top 16 finalists on this season of reality show competition The X Factor.

Thats because Pinellas County officials announced Oct. 30 plans for a major renovation to the Park Boulevard Bridge that will close the structure for about 30 days. The bridge will remain in the open position in order to meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements. County engineer Tom Menke said the primary reducer, or gearbox, which lifts the bridge, needs to be replaced and probably the secondary reducer, which is leaking oil, will be replaced as well. Weve had maintenance issues with this for a while, said Menke. It (the reducer) is undersized and doesnt meet the current specifications for the bridge. The estimated cost of the project is $700,00 to $800,000, Menke said. Final engineering specifications are being prepared and the project is expected to be put out for bid soon. A failure of the primary reducer on May 7 prompted the county to move forward with the upgrades. Plans are to replace the reducer, motor brake and adjust the air buffer mechanisms of the bridge me-Photo by BOB McCLUREThe Park Boulevard bridge will be closed to motorists and pedestrians for 30 days in June. chanics, according to a county news release. People have been complaining about that bridge for some time, said North Redington Beach Mayor Bill Queen. So its good that youre moving forward on this. Nancy McKibben, an engineering specialist for Pinellas County, said the work was scheduled in June because school would be out. It also will be hurricane season, she said. So if we need to have an evacuation, the bridge will be forcefully closed. Menke was asked why engineers couldnt do one side at a time, leaving one lane open for traffic during the work. He explained that the bridge is a single bridge, unlike the Indian Rocks Beach bridge, which would nix that idea. There also will be some other construction going on, Menke said, and we could have some lane closures (leading to the bridge). Alternative routes during the construction will be the Indian Rocks Causeway and the Tom Stuart Causeway bridges. The Park Boulevard bridge was built in 1979, connecting Park Boulevard with the barrier islands. Here and There Here and ThereMaster volunteers honored for serviceCLEARWATER More than 100 volunteers who stand up and speak up for abused and neglected children in Pinellas County were the guests of honor at a special event, sponsored by the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, at Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater Oct. 22. These volunteers were given the title of Master Guardian ad Litem. They represent a select group of highly dedicated guardian ad litem volunteers who, through years of service, have shown an outstanding expertise in child advocacy. They have gone above and far beyond what is needed in their cases to ensure that the best interests of the children that they advocate for have been met. The guest speaker at the event was Judge Raymond Gross, who spoke about his great respect and admiration for those community members who dedicate themselves tirelessly to ensure that the children who are involved in the dependency system have a voice in court proceedings. Also present were numerous guardian ad litem program staff members, who also commended the volunteers for their effective advocacy and compassion for the plight of vulnerable children in Pinellas County.

She was one of four Americans selected through the nonprofit and nonpartisan American Council on Germany for its McCloy Fellowship in Urban Affairs. This people-to-people exchange allowed Plantamura to learn about economic development and sustainability strategies in German municipalities. She met with hosts from the German Association of Cites,and local government and nongovernmental organization leaders in the cities of Cologne, Dusseldorf, Oldenburg, Berlin, Munich and Cottbus, which is in former eastern Germany near Poland. Plantamura witnessed the mining of brown coal, viewed North Sea wind turbines, and heard plans for subway construction and BMW manufacturing, learning that environmental sustainability is a major factor in Germanys energy goals. The country is clearly in a massive energy transition, Plantamura said. Germany is on track in its plans to become one of the most energy-efficient, and environmentally sound economies in the world. This even while maintaining competitive energy prices, along with a high level of prosperity for its people. She plans to speak about her time in Germany at the March meeting of the Seminole Discussion Group on Recycling and Sustainability, which meets at the Seminole Community Library, 9200 113th St. Photos courtesy of PATRICIA PLANTAMURAAbove, Councilor Patricia Plantamura visits the brown coal mining district near Cottbus, Germany.

Thats when the 17th edition of the annual Veterans Boat Parade will set sail in Boca Ciega Bay at approximately 11 a.m. following opening ceremonies at 10:30 a.m. Parade chair Barbara Stayer and Warren Capt. Shep Shephard will introduce Pearl Harbor survivors, World War II and Korean War veterans aboard the Dolphin Quest. There also will be a flagraising performed by a U.S. Coast Guard color guard. We had over 40 boats last year, said parade director Barbara Stayer, and I think well have more this year. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best decorated boats. As in past years, the parade will offer two regular divisions of competition based on boat size. First place in both divisions will be worth $300, second place, $200, and third place, $100. There also will be honorable mention awards. Plus, everybody that participates in the parade will receive a medallion, said Stayer. As in past years, the boats will make their way south past the Holiday Isles Elks Lodge to Johns Pass, arriving at noon. From there, the parade goes south past the Isle of Capri and Isle of Palms before turning around at the Treasure Island Causeway for the trip north back to Legion Post 273. Shortly after the parade arrives at Johns Pass, there will be a number of activities on the boardwalk. Volunteers will be selling Tshirts and announcing the skippers as they pass by. Spectators are encouraged to vote for their favorite boat and watch the parade from outside Scullys on the boardwalk. Other public vantage points include Legion Post 273 and Holiday Isles Elks Lodge. This years parade will salute the U.S. Coast Guard and will feature a separate division of boat competition among veterans organizations, such as the DAV, AMVETS, Legion and Elks. Among the best public vantage points to view the parade are the Legion Post, Madeira Park (next to Tom Stuart Causeway), the Elks Lodge and Johns Pass where boats and their skippers will be introduced over the public address system. Captain Steve Tours of Madeira Beach will again provide the judges boat. Prize sponsors this year are Navy Federal Credit Union and Mr. Electric. An awards presentation will be held Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at Post 273. The annual Veterans Boat Parade gives boaters an opportunity to display their patriotism. This years event is Nov. 9, beginning at American Legion Post 273 in Madeira Beach.Photo by BOB McCLURE Photo courtesy of JEFF HARRINGAmy Miller reunited with Lt.

Pinellas County Commissioners discussed the details of a referendum question Oct. 29 that would allow residents to vote yes or no to levy a transportation surtax of 1 percent to replace the current funding method of ad valorem (property) tax. County Attorney Jim Bennett provided the commission with a memo of the decision points to be made during the work session. The first was the amount of the tax 1 percent or up to 1 percent. All but Commissioner Norm Roche voted in favor of 1 percent. Roche voted no to all the questions about the ballot language. Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority CEO Brad Miller said 1 percent is necessary for PSTA to fulfill its financial plan, which was recently vetted by a third party consultant. Miller said PSTA would like the new tax to take effect Jan. 1, 2016, to zero out property tax on Oct. 1, 2015, so citizens dont have to pay both taxes at the same time. We would float on reserves until Jan. 1, 2016, he said. Commissioners have the responsibility to specify the uses for the new tax. The consensus was to restrict the use to expenses necessary to improve and expand the current bus system, add bus rapid transit and a light rail system, as specified by Greenlight Pinellas, as well as operations and maintenance of the system. Interlocal agreements between the county, its municipalities and PSTA could dictate how the money from the tax is shared. Bennett said the commission could decide to act as a pass-through for the money or simply act as a pass-through to PSTA. He said the commission might want to reserve some authority on the timing of the release of funds. The consensus was to pass 100 percent of the money to PSTA and hold an annual meeting between the commission and PSTA to discuss how the money was spent. PSTA will remain liable for its operations and the county will simply act as the funding mechanism, the same as it does with Penny for Pinellas funds dispersed to municipalities. County Administrator Bob LaSala is concerned about unknown costs for related expenses, such as utility relocation, right of way acquisition and changes to the traffic signal system. He talked about joint-use facilities and land zoning differences between jurisdictions in relation to stations and support system for light rail and bus rapid transit. Bennett said Greenlight Pinellas, which is the overall plan to improve the transportation system, calls for utility relocation to follow the method used by the Florida Department of Transportation, which means the expense would be paid by the utility, not PSTA. The county could end up on the hook for the expense of relocations involving the Utility Department. Bennett said countys financial adviser needed to review the plan. This could get expensive very quickly, he said. Miller said experts working on the Greenlight Pinellas plan had tried to consider as many expenses as possible, including those mentioned by LaSala. However, everyone agreed there would be unknowns. Miller said it was PSTAs intention to work with the county on any issues. Bennett said the commission also had to decide whether to specify an ending date for the tax or to ask voters to approve continuing the 1 percent charge until repealed. A repeal of the tax, however, is unlikely unless another funding source is found to pay for operations and maintenance of transit systems. The plan calls for bus improvements to begin right away with bus expansions finished and in service by 2021. Rail planning isnt scheduled to start until 2018, with construction slated to begin in 2021. Rail service would begin in 2024. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that the plan covers 35 years and suggested that after all the infrastructure is completed, not as much money would be required. Miller said since the surtax would become PSTAs only funding source, it would be needed to pay all future operations and maintenance costs, which are currently unknown. Some of the cost of construction for improved bus system and light rail is expected to come from state and federal grants. All parties insist that the ballot language be transparent, direct and easily understood. PSTA released a draft of proposed ballot language, as See GREENLIGHT, page 8A

County newsCDC launches Water and Health StudyThe Centers for Disease Control and Pinellas County Utilities launched the CDC Water and Health Study Oct. 28. The study, which will take place over the next six months in Pinellas County Utilities water service areas, is part of a larger research project that will help public health researchers better understand the links between water use and health in communities across the United States. Pinellas County Utilities is volunteering to work with the CDC on this important project. During the study, the CDC team will mail selected Pinellas County Utilities water customers a survey that asks about their water use and health. The survey can either be completed on paper or online using a secure website. Selected residents will not be contacted by phone or email. Being selected for the study does not mean that there is anything unusual about water service in the area, and water service will not be changed in any way as result of the study. Most water utility customers will not be contacted. Pinellas County is pleased to partner with the CDC in this important project to improve understanding of water use and health in communities across the U.S. said Robert M. Powell, director of the Pinellas County Utilities Water and Sewer division.

Deputy shoots suspected firearms dealerLARGO A Pinellas County Sheriffs Deputy shot a St. Petersburg man suspected of illegally dealing in firearms about 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. According to the sheriffs report, Deputy Bill Hartigan, a member of the Sheriffs Community Policing Unit, learned that a suspect was headed to the Suburban Lodge Motel, 6500 Ulmerton Road, to conduct a sale of firearms. Along with other law enforcement personnel, Hartigan set up surveillance around the motel. When the suspect arrived, he backed his vehicle into a space near the rear of the motels parking lot. Hartigan approached the driver and ordered him out of the car several times. The suspect refused Hartigans instructions and eventually began driving his vehicle forward. As he drove forward, the suspect reached in his waistband as if to retrieve a weapon. Fearing for his safety and the safety of other law enforcement present, Hartigan shot the suspect several times. Upon further investigation, deputies discovered the suspect, identified as Anthony Antonio Newkirk, 32, was in possession of multiple firearms. Newkirk was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for the gunshot wounds. Newkirk was reportedly in stable condition Saturday afternoon. He was charged with a felony in possession of a firearm, possession of cocaine and felony habitual traffic offender. Bond was set at $17,000. As a routine measure, Hartigan, an employee with the Sheriffs Office since April 2007, will be placed on paid administrative leave. Detectives with the Sheriffs Robbery Homicide Unit are investigating.Motorcyclist dies after crash on 78th AvenuePINELLAS PARK A motorcyclist died Oct. 31 in a single-vehicle crash that occurred in the 5900 block of 78th Avenue in Pinellas Park.

The motorcycle then struck a curb on the south side of the road, also hitting a utility pole, which was severed in half. Golden was ejected from the motorcycle. He then slid along the roadway before becoming trapped under a parked vehicle in a vacant lot. Officers unsuccessfully tried to free Golden, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

PETE BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested four suspects Oct. 29 in connection with an armed robbery and grand theft auto case. The armed robbery occurred about 2:40 p.m. at 210 Isle Drive in St. Pete Beach. According to deputies, the victim, Lynn Aubert, 67, was sitting in a vehicle in front of her residence on Isle Drive when Keo Elliot, 17, asked her to roll her window down so he could ask for directions.

Regardless of what takes place from this point forward, the fishing has been nothing short of magical at times both inshore and offshore. Another weak cold front pushed through the area over last weekend and with another making its way through by this weekend we can only assume that this will be a consistent pattern for the time being. Usually I would say that it takes a few days for the fish to begin to actively feed again, however with the water temp sitting at a crisp 71 to 73 degrees, as long as the bait remains in the area the fish are showing no signs of slowing down. Inshore the bite has been lights out, if youre a live bait angler theres no reason that you cant keep a rod bent almost the entire day. Redfish, trout, Spanish mackerel are top targets with jack crevalle, ladyfish and the occasional bluefish being by-catch. The pattern is simple; as long as we have an east wind look for the bait to be stacked right up tight along the beach. Then targeting the lower incoming tide, set yourself up along an edge, whether its a spoil island or a sandbar on the outer edge of a grass flat, as long as the water is semi-clean it wont take long to chum up a bite. These fish are all looking to put on some weight in anticipation of the upcoming winter and once they sense a feeding frenzy in the area they will find you. Offshore, we had some real spurts of greatness last week prior to the front coming through. Conditions were perfect for near-shore kingfishing. Schools of small Spanish mackerel and jack crevalle have been corralling giant pods of micro bait, as they push the bait to the surface and crash it; the door is open for the kingfish to take advantage of their gluttony. Theres few things cooler than putting out a 14-inch bait and watching it get absolutely smoked right on the surface, then watching the line evaporate from the spool. Look for these small windows to occur 2 to 3 days after the front passes through and the seas settle again.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

Bay Pines VAHCS was recognized for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions. The clinical processes focus on care for heart attack, pneumonia, surgery, childrens asthma, stroke and venous thromboembolism, as well as inpatient psychiatric services. New this year is a category for immunization for pneumonia and influenza. Bay Pines is one of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. to earn the honor for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Bay Pines was recognized for its achievement on the following measure sets heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical care. The ratings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2012 calendar year. The list of Top Performer organizations represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure performance data for 2012. To earn the honor, hospitals must achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures, achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there are at least 30 denominator cases, and have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice examples include giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery, or providing a home management plan of care for children with asthma. Bay Pines VA Healthcare System and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improvement and they should be proud of their achievement, said Dr. Mark R. Chassin, president and chief executive officer of The Joint Commission. We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the Top Performer distinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients. We understand that what matters most to patients at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System is safe, effective care, said Suzanne M. Klinker, director of Bay Pines. Thats why Bay Pines VA Healthcare System has made a commitment to accreditation and to positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes. Bay Pines VA Healthcare System is proud to receive the distinction of being a Joint Commission Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. In addition to being included in todays release of The Joint Commissions Bay Pines is one of the nations leading VA healthcare systems, employing more than 3,500 medical professionals and support staff dedicated to providing the very best care to veterans in southwest Florida. It is accredited by The Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The healthcare system is also a three-time winner of the Robert W. Carey Circle of Excellence Award, the VAs top honor for quality achievement. Bay Pines VAHCS treats approximately 100,000 veterans each year. Health updatesAll Childrens Hospital named top performerST. PETERSBURG The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America, recently named All Childrens Hospital a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. All Childrens was recognized for exemplary performance in its pediatric measure: childrens asthma care. All Childrens is the only childrens hospital in Florida to earn this distinction. Our success is based on physicians, nurses and other clinicians whose commitment to patientand family-centered care and evidencebased practice results in outstanding treatment and leads to improved health for our regions children, said Jonathan M. Ellen, M.D., in a press release. Ellen is president and physician in chief at All Childrens Hospital and professor of pediatrics and vice dean at All Childrens Hospital for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Childhood asthma is a leading cause of hospitalization among children, resulting in children missing school and activities, and parents having to miss work, Ellen said. We do more than provide excellent treatment when a child is admitted with an asthma attack we also provide education for patients and parents aimed at successful management of asthma symptoms in order to prevent readmission to the hospital. All Childrens is one of three Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals to be named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. earned this designation as adult hospitals that consistently and at a very high level follow best practices for treating people who require surgery or suffer heart attacks, heart failure, stroke, pneumonia or other serious conditions.Back N Balance to host toy driveDUNEDIN Back N Balance, 1059 Broadway, Suite C, will host a toy drive Dec. 16-20.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, November 7, 2013We are the Rabid Existentialists. For an hour or so on Wednesday nights at a local pub, we play trivia, along with other teams, such as the Beer Busters, the Losers and William Shatner Face. We suspect that a couple of teams cheat because some of their players text or talk on their cell phones during the Trivia Night. Thats a no-no but so far no indictments have been issued. Im quite certain though they will get their comeuppance; theyll have a free ride to hell when they die. When our team is at full strength, we have about eight or nine players with varied backgrounds. As far as I know, none of us have criminal records. Our captain, Paul, has a strong background in linguistics, leading me to believe that he came up with the name Rabid Existentialists, which, defined, has something to do with philosophy. Or maybe its another television show about zombies. Guess I should ask Paul. Our forte seems to be history and geography, since we have two high school history teachers on our team. Not sure what Im bringing to the table, other than useless nostalgic brain debris, such as the fact Who Put the Bomp in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp, was recorded by Barry Mann in about 1961. Oh, God, here we go; now I cant get that song out of my head. Damn earworms. Conspicuous by his absence lately has been Factual John, who seems to know a lot on about a wide range of topics, such as the Manhattan Project, guns and rocketry. Makes me wonder, though, if existentialism is his true calling. We seem to get a lot of questions about astronomy. Dont know much about that, other than the fact my friends cat is named Copernicus. Or is it Picasso? Cant seem to get my facts straight. Quarrels over questions are common. Since theres a time limit to answer each question, Paul sometimes will end the debate by calling for an informal vote. Recently, we disagreed over which ice cream store chain opened first BaskinRobbins or Dairy Queen? Our answer was correct Dairy Queen. What ensued was a 20-minute debate on which chain makes the best ice cream. One of the team members said McDonalds makes the best ice cream. Thats blasphemy. Dont worry, though. I hear hes walking again. Fortunately, some questions quickly get a consensus. A couple of weeks ago, trivia teams were asked whose candidacy is known for Tippecanoe and Tyler, too I looked at one of my teammates, a history teacher, and we simultaneously whispered William Henry Harrison to Paul. Then, of course, we had to discuss Harrison at length, both noting that Harrisons presidency was the shortest in history just over a month because he died in office. He also gave the longest inaugural address in history, my teacher friend said. Still hours shorter then Tea Party Face Ted Cruzs speech, I said to myself. Didnt want to start a political debate while we were on a winning streak. One of my so-called friends, Jim, questioned whether I was indeed a University of Florida graduate when I botched a question about the last time the Gators had won a national championship in football. Im still beating myself up over that answer, which may have cost us first place that night. Singing Who Put the Bomps in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp over and over, though, seems to help me get past it. When Paul is gone, we are a rudderless ship. We appointed Jim captain recently, but since none of us could spell existentialism which was necessary to submit a name for our team we decided to come up with a new team name for the evening. How about the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald? I suggested, in reference to the direction our team was going. No takers. We settled on Paulless at the Pub. The match went downhill fast that night. Some players turned their attention to the Red Sox and Cardinals World Series game. Surprised there wasnt an argument over who had the best beard on the field. I was praying for another question about the Gators, to redeem myself. A couple of teammates defected, opting to play Jinga with Snickers bars. We need help. If you would like to join the Rabid Existentialists, please email me your credentials. I can assure you the process will be less painful than qualifying for Obamacare. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email tgermond@TBNweekly.com. The ideal situation for a writer (lets call him Cox) who wishes to really crank out a lot of words in a short time is a prison cell. Outside the cell is an armed guard either male or female hired by Coxs publisher to shoot Cox if he fails to meet the required deadline. In the cell is a sink with running water for Cox to splash into his face. In one corner is a toilet. Just inside the cell door is a table with coffee, re-supplied every hour or so by the armed guard. Cox writes on a computer or on a yellow legal pad, as he prefers. Beside him is an alarm clock, as a reminder of how much time remains for him to complete his daily output of words before the armed guard blows Coxs brains out. Another excellent writing inspiration is Coxs checkbook or bank statement, which shows a balance of $124.80. This is the average life savings for the typical writer, including some of the most successful ones. Edgar Allan Poe and George Orwell were classic examples of impecunious scribblers who were driven not just by their obsession with writing but also their need to buy food, alcohol, drugs or available women. A good piece of advice for most beginning writers is Marry money. A clamorous newsroom with tight deadlines hanging over reporters and editors has always been a setting for plentiful writing. But once I left daily newspaper work I persuaded myself that peace and quiet are my absolute requirements for productive writing. However, I kept hearing of writers who refused to work without music as a companion. A few days ago I strapped on a set of earbuds, switched on my iPod and entered a wonderful new world: the combination of words and music. I wont assume that listening to Beethoven and Willie Nelson as I write will be a major help for me, but it will make writing much less lonely, and therefore more enjoyable. Novelists and other big-book writers sometimes get so sick of their current projects that they write for the sheer desire to finish the dadblamed thing and send it off to their agent or publisher. I know the feeling. Ive started at least 20 novels, but have completed none of them. Im neither proud nor ashamed of that fact. Writing is similar to raising a child. You are responsible for creating a piece of work, but you soon learn that the work seems to have a mind of its own. It may stay with you for years, or it may suddenly fade away and never be heard from again. Im writing this column under less-thanideal circumstances. Outside, a team of treetrimmers is assaulting large limbs overhanging the street. They have buzz saws capable of felling giant redwoods or even the Washington Monument. The sound of the power saws makes me wish I was in the prison cell I referred to, above. Adding to the din today is the barking of three dogs, either owned or under the temporary care of my sweetheart Liz, with whom I am residing during one of my frequent visits to Pinellas County. Her own dog is a miniature schnauzer, Max, whose ancestors were trained to attack anyone or anything that came within 600 yards of home base. Fierce barking and snarling became part of the genetic package; Max is powerless not to respond in that way, until Liz sprays him with cold water, out of sheer desperation. The other two dogs are Annabelle and Mariana. They are younger and larger than Max, and are delighted to follow Maxs raucous lead each time a UPS or garbage truck, squirrel or tree surgeon appears out front. Its an impressive chorus, a marvelous accompaniment for the words you are now reading. Its fun to read about the quirks and customs that writers have used to help them get the words out of their brains and onto paper or screen. Sir Walter Scott wrote poetry while riding on horseback. The poet Friedrich Schiller kept a supply of rotting apples in his desk. He said the odor stimulated him. Agatha Christie also used apples as a writing aid. She chomped on them while writing in the bathtub. John Steinbeck was a fanatic about having 12 sharpened pencils at his side as he wrote. Setting a daily quota has been an aid to many writers. Jack London said he wrote 1,000 words every day of his adult life. Stephen King aims for 2,000 words each day, and refuses to use adverbs. You can find many more examples of writers habits at brainpickings.org.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Florida tourism conjures images of theme parks, resort hotels, state parks and the finest beaches the world has to offer. Sailfish, marlins and mackerel dont immediately come to mind, but recreational fishing is an important part of the tourism industry in Florida, too. Florida is uniquely positioned to attract visitors to the state for recreational fishing, as our natural fresh and salt waterways are truly world-famous. Each year, millions of Americans and international visitors come to Florida to spend time fishing on our waterways. Florida leads the nation in total angler expenditures, where nearly $5 billion was spent just last year. According to a recent report by the Florida TaxWatch Center for Competitive Florida, Florida: The Fishing Capital of the World, more than 80,200 jobs result from the states recreational fishing industry. More than half of the money that enters Floridas economy from the fishing industry is spent on trip-related expenses, such as food, lodging and transportation, which benefit the traditional tourism industry. This considerable economic impact does not include the commercial fishing industry, which provides its own tremendous value to Floridas economy, and supports thousands of Florida jobs. The demand for quality fishing already exists, and Florida should make the most of it. Did you know that approximately 46 million Americans fish, which is more than those who play golf and tennis combined? There are many opportunities for tourism expansion in Florida, but recreational fishing is one that continues to steadily grow. The number of people fishing in the Sunshine State grew by 24 percent, from 2006-2011. In response to this growth, Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission recently added four additional Florida license-free fishing days through 2013: Oct. 12, Nov. 29-30, and Dec. 28. License-free fishing days encourage visitors and residents alike to participate in this multi-billion industry. From now on, Florida will host eight license-free fishing days each year. While Florida leaders have already recognized the importance of state waterways for global competitiveness by putting substantial investments into our seaports, they must also keep in mind the role that our waterways have in positioning Florida to compete in the global tourism sector through recreational and competitive fishing. Already the nationwide leader in recreational fishing, prioritizing the investment and growth of the fishing industry would maximize potential tourism revenues and help sustain and strengthen Florida as the global destination for anglers who want to experience the worlds premier competitive fishing. There are hundreds of competitive fishing events held around the U.S. and the globe that could likely be readily relocated to Florida waters, bringing even more visitors to the Sunshine State each year. Floridas water resources present incredible economic opportunities for the state, but Florida leaders must consider how these resources can be used to maximize their impact. Expansions of Floridas recreational fishing industry is a promising opportunity to diversify the use of Floridas water resources and continue to grow and diversify Floridas economy. Dominic M.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Some ideas on how to write faster Drivers SeatBob Driver Help wanted for our trivia team Tom Germond Dominic M. Calabro Florida tourism gets hooked on the joys of fishingA misapplication of talentEditor: The Oct. 17 Beach Beacon contained an article concerning the plan of St. Pete Beach to contract with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office for a deputy to be dedicated to code enforcement as has been done in Madeira Beach. I have little doubt that action on reported violations has improved and likely incentive for compliance, particularly as pertains to the new chronic nuisance code. By my observation, initiative for enforcement in other code areas, not so much. It should be noted that the city contract for law enforcement services, initiated in 1995, contained the provision the sheriff shall bring appropriate charges for violations of all laws and ordinances and accordingly, such sworn officers of the sheriff are hereby vested with the power to enforce ordinances of the city. It would seem that this has never been effectively applied except perhaps for the occasional noise complaint. The point of this letter is to express the view that use of an expensively trained law enforcement officer for code enforcement activity is a serious misapplication of talent. At over $90,000 per year, this would fund at least two full-time city employees. Richard J. Lewis Madeira BeachCut the right wing extremists adriftEditor: Admission to the Grand Old Party has for far too long been extended by invitation only. This has resulted in a myopic, monochromatic agenda, one authored and driven by a narrow and select minority. Because of this they now find themselves increasingly isolated from Main Street America and the concerns of ordinary citizens, including many of their own constituents. Worse they continue to plod forward on this path in spite of the fact it is obvious, even to outsiders, that their inwardly focused views have the potential to alter the future of their party and the dynamics of American politics in a way that will prove irreversible. It is their collective reluctance to change that has left them floundering in desperation, a circumstance entirely of their own making. To illustrate this point, for openers their legislative record and their political agenda for the past 50 or so years have served to solidify in the minds of millions of Americans the Republican Party is the party of white male Americans, the wealthy and the influential. Rather than taking steps to alter this perception, they forge ahead Plan, a plan that was dictated by their far right extreme element. The need for a fall back Plan B seems never to have occurred to them. In the long run all that this will accomplish is to drive a wedge between Republican rank and file and their dissonant element, something both divisive and destructive. At the same time it alienates that new and ever expanding social and political demographic outside their party at a time many of them are searching for political affiliation and are being aggressively courted by the Democrats. I refer to those people destined to soon represent the majority in America. This includes women, Blacks, Hispanics and the other disparate groups representative of a new and thriving United States. Republicans, by historically denying these people access to their tent, are inadvertently driving them into the camp of their adversary. In fact in all probability it is already too late for them to change. However, they must still make the effort if they hope to survive as a party, and they have precious little time to lose. Should those running the party fail to convince the faithful they must reach out, accommodating and embracing this expanding demographic, I fear the days of the Republican Party as a relative factor in American politics is about to come to an abrupt end. It is highly probable the only way to rectify the situation is to cut the right wing extremists adrift, in the process coalescing the remaining members into a new and more centrist party. This new party must then replace the dogmatic members forced out, those tails that for too long wagged the dog, with pragmatic leaders who will develop an agenda more responsive to the needs of the new centrist moderate base they will then come to represent. What is vital for all Americans to consider is this is not only important to Republicans that they salvage their party, it is important to all Americans, including Democrats. The worst possible scenario would be one that resulted in the demise of the two party system that has served this nation so well for so long. Theirs is a voice we all need. Robert A.

TORRESLARGO Principal Brad Finkbiner has ambitious goals for the designs of Largo High Schools new building. We want to be the prototypical high school for other schools to model, not only in Florida, but the United States, he said recently. Its going to be a tremendous amount of work, but I think itll be worth it. The Pinellas County School Board approved a $3.6 million agreement with the chosen architect company, Harvard Jolly, Oct. 22. Construction is estimated to cost $47.8 million. Over the next three years, the board has budgeted a total of $59.1 million for the entirety of the project, including the design, furniture, equipment and technology to be installed. The current building for the nearly 100-year-old high school was constructed in 1957. Its been a good building for as long as it could, but it needs to be updated, Finkbiner said. Were really looking into doing some really great things with it, so it will be standing for the next 40 to 50 years. Finkbiner said hes been meeting with the architectures every Wednesday to plan for the transition and lay out a vision for the new campus. Harvard Jolly hopes to have the design completed by the end of the school year. The plan is to move classrooms into 45 to 60 portables, set up primarily on the schools baseball field, over the summer and begin demolition of the current campus in the fall of 2014, Finkbiner said. The high school would use the closed Largo Central Elementary School, which sits to the southeast of the campus, as the administration building. The schools ExCEL magnet program, currently housed at Largo Central, also would move to portables. One of the wings of the high school would remain open for science labs and classrooms not easily transitioned into portables. Construction will take a little less than two years and be completed by July 1, 2016, according to current estimates. The school would move into the new building over the summer and be ready to open by August 2016 Thats what the architects tell me, Finkbiner said. I need no big weather coming in. Prospective construction companies for the project were scheduled to give presentations this week, with a selected company secured by Thanksgiving break, Finkbiner said. Until the design is complete, the construction company will be focused on planning the temporary campus. Finkbiner said he has four goals for the new Largo High School campus: efficient transitions in between classes, safety and security, readiness for the technology of the next several decades and, most importantly, student achievement. We really want to look forward, he said. This building needs to be built for the year 2050, instead of 2017, because the building will still be standing at that time. School administration and the architects are at the beginning of discussing how those goals will play out in the buildings design. Finkbiner said he has to consider if, for example, future Largo High School students will need hookups for tablets rather than places to keep their textbooks. Im interested what (the architects) come up with, he said. The school also is working with Largo police, to address school safety, as well as the citys planners, as the architects consider which street the school will face and how student drop off might be designed to be more efficient and safe. Another piece that the school is still researching is where the schools sports teams will play in the transition. The football stadium will continue to house the football, track, soccer and flag football programs during construction. But Finkbiner said he was working with the city of Largo and others in the district to find a temporary home for baseball, basketball and softball. The football stadium will get an upgrade to its setup, to rearrange the flow of fans, and possibly add new field turf, depending on what money is left over, Finkbiner said. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESPrincipal Brad Finkbiner shows a concept design for a potential courtyard in the new Largo High School. The final design of the replacement building, scheduled to be built starting in late 2014, is not yet completed.After the main construction, the school is looking to tear down the Largo Central Elementary building to make way for a new baseball and softball field, creating a sports complex in that corner of campus. We wanted to make sure as many sports as we could have on campus, Finkbiner said. Officials havent decided if the school auditorium will be replaced, but the historic baseball field house will remain. We wanted to maintain the thread of history that Largo High has always had, Finkbiner commented. We want the community to be proud of this school. Staff, the Parent Teacher Student Association and the student group Largo Leadership will have input into the project. Finkbiner said the students which number a little more than 1,700 have mixed emotions about the impending construction. Theyre anxious about it, being in portables for a couple of years. But again, I think theyre excited about the opportunity that were going to be building such a great school, and they will be part of it, he said. Enrollment numbers might go down during the two years of construction, he admitted. But Finkbiner encouraged parents to stick with the school and the great programs it offered. The new building will be designed to hold a student body of 1,850 to 2,000. Finkbiner said he decided to become principal of Largo High to help foster in the newly authorized International Baccalaureate program and because he knew the school would be upgrading its campus. I knew it was coming. I came here because of the opportunity to build a school, he said. Were really beginning to put Largo High School on the map. He added that he anticipates staying until we have this mission accomplished, namely to make the Largo High the finest high school in the nation. Im just honored to help guide Largo to the next level. We have lofty goals, but I certainly think we are building a team that will meet them, Finkbiner said. The community deserves it, certainly the staff and our kids deserve it.

In an unexpected turn of events, Richard had successful surgery Oct. 24 for a degenerative eye disease called keratoconus, said Diana Flory, who, along with her husband, Ed, spearheaded efforts to bring the girl to the United States for treatment. She came through like a trooper, Diana said in a telephone conversation. Diana was calling from California and was expected to fly back home to Seminole with Richard and her father Friday night. The specialist who performed the surgery was Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler of Beverly Hills, Calif. The Florys said Richard originally was expected to undergo two procedures in six months, but that will not be necessary based on the doctors treatment. Its just overwhelming and a blessing beyond belief that this has happened, not only that it has happened that quickly but that her vision was so bad and that this (keratoconus) had progressed so rapidly, Ed Flory said. The Florys also learned that an anonymous donor has funded the remainder of the costs, originally pegged at about $17,000 for both procedures. There have been all kinds of wonderful happenings here that have impacted this little girl, she said. Diana said there are no words to express the gratitude to Wachler that Richards family and she felt after the procedure. She told Wachler that he gave Richard back her life. Nicey can see. They (the doctors staff) asked her what time it was and she looked at the clock and told them, Diana said. They asked her if she realized that she had just read the clock, something that was totally impossible an hour before. The look on her face told us she had not even realized it. On the way back to the hotel she told us that the green light was too bright so I am sure it will take her a while to adjust to all the changes in her vision. Wachler pioneered the Holcomb C3-R procedure that is named after Steve Holcomb, an Olympic bobsledder who was legally blind due to keratoconus until Wachler treated him. A similar procedure was used to treat Richard along with the use of insertible contact lens. In addition, Richard is severely nearsighted, which might require her to use a soft contact lens over the insertible lenses. Nevertheless, Wachler said theres a 99 percent chance that she will never have to undergo a procedure again for keratoconus. As a member of the First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks Beach, Diana Flory went to St. Lucia on a mission trip in 2007 and first met Richard at a church function. She began to notice that Richards eyes were causing her problems around Easter 2012 as she watched the girl read her part for a program. Diana contacted Tampa Bay Newspapers in June about her efforts to raise funds for Richards medical and travel expenses while she was staying with the Florys. The Florys had a benefit concert and a garage sale to raise money for Richards expenses. Ed Flory said that people sent donations to them after they read about Richards plight in Tampa Bay Newspapers articles. Richard will stay with the Florys for about another week. Television crews interviewed Richard Oct. 24, Diana said. Everybody kept saying what a sweet little girl she was, Diana said. What huge things she is going to do one day.

The club donated the money to help teachers with classroom needs because too often teachers have to use their own funds to purchase classroom supplies. This is the second year the club has adopted Starkey Elementary, one of six elementary schools its adopted in the Greater Seminole area. The club also sponsors a program at Starkey called B.U.G.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:About TimeGenre: Comedy Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Margot Robbie Director: Richard Curtis Rated: R At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time. The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tims father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim cant change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life so he decides to make his world a better place ... by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means hes never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again and again but finally, after a lot of cunning time traveling, he wins her heart. Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches and to save his best friend from professional disaster. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift cant save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous, too.

In the aftermath of Marvels Thor and Marvels The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos ... but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Thor: The Dark World is based on Marvels classic superhero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book Journey into Mystery, Issue 83, in August 1962.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.A Case of YouGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Evan Rachel Wood, Justin Long, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Busy Philipps, Brendan Fraser, Sienna Miller and Vince Vaughn Director: Kat Coiro Not rated A young writer (Justin Long) woos a cute and quirky barista (Evan Rachel Wood) by studying her Facebook profile and making himself into the man of her dreams. When she falls for his alter ego, he must keep up the act or risk losing her.The Armstrong LieGenre: Documentary Cast: Lance Armstrong Director: Alex Gibney Rated: R In 2008, Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney set out to make a documentary about Lance Armstrongs comeback to the world of competitive cycling. Widely regarded as one of the most prominent figures in the history of sports, Armstrong had brought global attention to cycling as the man who had triumphed over cancer and went on to win bicyclings greatest race, the Tour de France, a record seven consecutive times. Charting Armstrongs life-story (and given unprecedented access to both the tour and the man), Gibney began filming what he initially envisioned as the ultimate comeback story Armstrongs return from his 2005 retirement and his attempt to win his eighth tour. Indeed, more than just an athlete, Armstrong, through his inspiring personal narrative and charitable works, had come to embody nothing short of the possibilities of the human spirit itself. An unprecedented scandal, however, would rewrite both the Armstrong legend and Gibneys film. By early 2013, Lance Armstrong had admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs following a federal criminal investigation and an investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (in 2012 the USADA, in conjunction with the International Cycling Union, effectively stripped Armstrong of all seven of his previous titles and banned him from all sport for life). Setting out to chronicle a comeback, Alex Gibneys The Armstrong Lie instead emerges as a riveting insiders view, chronicling the collapse of one of the greatest legends of our time. As Lance Armstrong tells Gibneys camera: I didnt live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.Best Man DownGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Justin Long, Tyler Labine, Jess Weixler, Addison Timlin, Frances OConnor and Shelley Long Director: Ted Koland Rated: PG-13 When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (Tyler Labine) unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin (Jess Weixler) and Scott (Justin Long) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpys body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds path leads them to a 15-year-old girl (Addison Timlin) in a small, northern Minnesota town all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.The Book ThiefGenre: Drama Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Sophie Nlisse Director: Brian Percival Rated: PG-13 Based on the beloved bestselling novel, The Book Thief tells the inspiring story of a spirited and courageous young girl named Liesel, who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany. For Liesel, the power of words and of imagination becomes a means of escape and even joy from the tumultuous events enveloping her and everyone she knows and loves. She is the heart and soul of The Book Thief. Indeed, it is heart and soul as well as triumph and perseverance that drive the film, which is rich in themes and characters that will resonate for every generation. A moving and poignant portrait of the resiliency of the human spirit, this life-affirming tale contrasts innocence (as embodied by Liesel) with the pervasive tyranny that marked the times and her homeland.Great ExpectationsGenre: Drama Cast: Jeremy Irvine, Holliday Grainger, Robbie Coltrane, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes Director: Mike Newell Rated: PG-13 Young orphan Pip is given a chance to rise from his humble beginnings thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Moving through Londons class ridden world as a gentleman, Pip uses his new found position to pursue the beautiful Estella; a spoilt heiress hes loved since childhood. Yet the shocking truth behind his great fortune will have devastating consequences for everything he holds dear.How I Live NowGenre: Romance, science fiction and thriller Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland, George MacKay and Anna Chancellor Director: Kevin Macdonald Rated: R Set in the near-future UK, Saoirse Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

A&E newsFlorida Highwayman to visit art societyPINELLAS PARK The Pinellas Park Art Society will welcome one of the original Florida Highwaymen on Saturday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd. Artist and legend Robert Lewis will demonstrate his techniques, discuss his work and feature works for sale. Lewis, who is still an active painter, is one of the surviving Florida Highwaymen.The Florida Highwaymen, a group of 26 African-Americans, broke convention to paint beautiful iconic Florida landscapes. Originating in the mid-1950s, an era marked by racism and poverty, these selftaught entrepreneurs mentored each other while they painted on basic materials like Upson board for canvasses, and crown molding for frames. Local galleries shunned their work, so they peddled their art from car trunks along area roadways, hence their name. Their art freed them from work in citrus groves and labor camps, and they created a body of work that has become not only a timeless collection of a natural environment, but a symbol of determination and belief in oneself. The surviving Highwaymen, now in their 60s and 70s, are an important chapter in Americas culture and history. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at Roes Deli, located inside Park Station. For information, call 204-4256 or visit pinellasart.com.Voters to decide 2014 Gecko Ball theme GULFPORT Organizers of Gulfports annual Gecko Ball are encouraging the public to vote now on the theme of next years event.

The Eight OClock Theatre production of La Cage aux Folles, a musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman, runs through Nov. 17 at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 for adults and $12.50 for students age 22 and younger with identification. A city of Largo handling charge of $3.50 will be added to each ticket. Call 5876793. The musical is based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret. The story focuses on a gay couple: Georges and Albin. Georges, the owner of a SaintTropez nightclub, and Albin, the main attraction of the nightclubs drag revue, have lived together for 20 years in un-wedded bliss. When Georges son Jean-Michel fathered during a one-night fling arrives and announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician, their lives are thrown into turmoil. Jean-Michel has invited the family of his bride-to-be for dinner and he would prefer to present Georges and his biological mother as his parents, while giving Albin who helped raise him the boot. Georges reluctantly agrees to the masquerade. Of course, things dont go quite as intended and Albin has his own plans. Michael Newton-Brown directed this production of La Cage aux Folles for Eight OClock Theatre. My first La Cage aux Folles was in the late 1980s at the old Showboat Dinner Theatre, writes Newton-Brown in his notes from the director. Who would have thought as I work my fifth La Cage we would culturally be where we are now. [The show] is a delightful tribute to family values, and is the first gay musical to break the cultural barrier. The show features excellent music and choreography as well as plenty of feathers and sequins. Its not the glitz that makes La Cage aux Folles so compelling though its the characters and the way they interact. James Grenelle stars as Albin. Grenelle is as much the star of this show as Albins diva Zaza is the star of St. Tropez drag nightclub. He delivers the anthem I Am What I Am with stunning sincerity and strength. He is equally equipped to handle the comical sequence in which Albin attempts to suppress his natural mannerisms and adopt, temporarily, a more machismo persona Uncle Albert using John Wayne as a template. Jerry Slutsky gives a solid performance as Georges. He is charming and charismatic as he opens the show with We Are What We Are, along with Les Cagelles. Outside of the spotlight, he is caring and kind. Slutsky plays Georges as a man caught in a quandary: No matter his choice of action, someone he loves will be hurt. The relationship between Georges and Albin is what gives La Cage aux Folles its soul. Slutzky and Grenelle capture that genuine tenderness and affection that must exist to make the production a success. Ryan Sturm portrays the ungrateful son Jean-Michel. Sturm brings more ingratitude to the role than is common and that is refreshing. The significance of Jean-Michels lack of appreciation for Albin is too often glossed over. Sturms Jean-Michel comes across as insincere and unlikable as he persuades Georges to brush aside his 20-year partner. Equally significant, of course, is the lesson the character learns and the fact that Albin instantly forgives Jean-Michels thoughtlessness and attempts to help him when his biological mother fails him (once again). In this way, La Cage aux Folles makes an important point about how families are defined not by biology but through love and affection. The show features many fine performers. As Jacob, Joe Southall steals his share of scenes. Christine Joyce does an excellent job playing Jaqueline, owner of a prestigious restaurant. Among the six Cagelles, Josh Duart cant help but stand out. Duart plays Hanna from Hamburg, a whip-cracking member of the ensemble who ends up in a relationship with Francis (Kyle Hill). Other Cagelles include Jennifer Finch, Jessica Ulbrich, Jay R. Goldberg, Jonathan Pouliot and Christopher Warren. Musically, the highlights of the show are A Little More Mascara and I Am What I Am, performed by Albin and Les Cagelles; Song on the Sand and Look Over There, performed by Georges; and a rousing rendition of The Best of Times, performed by Albin, Jacqueline and company. La Cage aux Folles is as much fun as it is endearing. Its theme of accepting others for what they are keeps it topical while its treasured score and eye-catching routines make it an enduring crowd-pleaser and Eight OClock Theatres delightful production is no exception.

SYAA fundraiser underwayMoney raised will pay for improvements at the groups sports complex By TIFFANY RAZZANO SEMINOLE The Seminole Youth Athletic Association has started a fundraising campaign to help pay for improvements at its complex, 12100 90th Ave. Its an ongoing effort to keep the complex up and running, said Andy Wilkinson, SYAA board member and fundraising chair, and to keep the condition of the fields and facilities in good shape. In an online crowd funding campaign, which can be found at rally.org/f/c8Xu1PuDhhg, SYAA is hoping to raise $10,000. But Wilkinson estimates that if SYAA were to tackle everything that needed to be fixed at the complex, it would cost the organization around $80,000. Financial support for the organization comes solely from member fees, grants, sponsorships and donations. The parking lot is probably the biggest project and will be the first completed, Wilkinson said. It hasnt been paved in over 30 years, he said. Potholes have been filled with rocks over the years, but that is only a short-term solution. And drainage in the lot is not that great. There also isnt a clear right of way for pedestrians, he added. The parking lot should cost around $25,000, Wilkinson said. The initial $10,000 being raised would go toward this project. SYAA already has some money, from Florida Central Credit Union signing up for a three-year sponsorship, earmarked for the parking lot improvements. SYAAs Santos Soccer hopes to start a program where its players mentor children with special needs. This means the complex needs to be handicap accessible. In order to do this, we need our facilities to accommodate their needs, Wilkinson said.

Hollins High School JROTC march through the audience during the ceremonys Retirement of Colors. By SUZETTE PORTERAt least four names will be on the ballot for a special primary election on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, to decide candidates for the March 11 special election for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The county has been abuzz with speculation since the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Young represented House District 13 for 42 years. The special election will pick a new representative for Pinellas County to serve until the next election cycle. As of Friday, Nov. 8, three candidates had filed paperwork with the Florida Division of Elections, including Republicans David W. Jolly of Indian Rocks Beach and John-Michael Fleig of St. Pete Beach. The third candidate is Lucas T. Overby of Clearwater representing the Libertarian Party of Florida. Democrat Alex Sink, who is reportedly moving to Pinellas County, was the first candidate to announce that she is running since the governor set the election dates. Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30. She has not yet filed paperwork with the state, according to the Division of Elections website.Will not runDemocrat Jessica Ehrlich announced Nov. 6 that she was pulling out of the race. On the Republican side, former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has said he will not run, as has Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel, former state Rep. Larry Crow and Youngs son, Billy. Former Pinellas County Commission Neil Brickfield announced Friday afternoon that he would not run. Its an honor to be considered as a candidate to potentially replace Congressman Bill Young, Brickfield said on his Facebook page. However, Brickfield, who recently became executive director for the Pinellas County Sheriffs Police Athletic League, said the timing just wasnt right. There is still time for additional candidates to decide to run in the primary. Candidate qualifying period runs from 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18, through noon, Tuesday, Nov. 19. The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is Dec. 16. Florida has closed primaries, so only voters registered with a political party may vote in that partys primary election. Any changes to party affiliations must be made 29 days prior to a primary election, which for the Jan. 14, 2014 election is Dec. 16.Campaigns begin for vacant District 13 seat SEMINOLESPC to host global peace forumA global peace forum, World Peace: Let It Begin with Me, will take place Thursday, Nov. 14, 12:30 to 2 p.m., at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N.

Above, Andrea Gregor buys a craft item from Caitie Walker. Caitie, 11, is a local entrepreneur who has started her own business, Caities Colorful Creations.Grannys AtticOther projects include replacing the football bleachers, re-sodding the soccer fields to improve drainage, and installing new perimeter fencing and a new gate at the main entrance. The complex also would benefit from new bathrooms and a new roof for the concession stand, he said. The work for the field will hopefully be funded by a grant from the Florida Youth Soccer Association, Wilkinson said, though the organization hasnt been awarded the money yet. He also hopes to attract more business sponsorships, creating long-term partnerships with local companies. Its really our goal to create partnerships with them, he said, not just a one-time heres some money and forget about it. Of course, individuals are encouraged to contribute what they can afford to support SYAAs cause. We appreciate anything people can give, Wilkinson said. For more information about SYAA, visit www.syaasports .com. SYAA, from page 1AWelch delivers final state of the county address for the year By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch embarked on a different way of communicating with citizens this year with a quarterly state of the county address made available on the countys website and YouTube. Welch delivered his inaugural address on March 27. His second came Aug. 2. The third and final became available via the Internet Nov. 8. Welch began his address by saying that 2013 had been a productive year. The county has tackled a diverse set of issues this year from revising our Emergency Medical Services, or EMS system, to modernizing our efforts to manage stormwater and improve water quality, and addressing the growing impact of poverty on our countys productivity, potential, and taxpayer funded services. Welch talked about the budget in all three addresses. In the final one, he focused on the work by staff to develop the current $1.7 balanced budget that prioritizes public health and safety, community development, environmental sustainability, tourism development and other services, including water quality and an improved surface water management program. Dealing with the cost of emergency management services has been a sore spot for county commissioners for the past several years. Welch talked about the ongoing work to incorporate suggestions from a study by a consulting firm, Fitch and Associates to stabilize the system while continuing quality service. Another topic the chairman focused on during previous addresses is transportation, which is on a fast track to a Nov. 4, 2014 referendum to allow citizens to decide the best way to fund improved transit initiatives. Pinellas County and Tampa Bay lag behind every other metropolitan area when it comes to modern, efficient public transit services, Welch said in his third address. Greenlight Pinellas will change that by funding a modern, dependable and easy to use countywide bus system and a modern local rail system connecting our downtown centers from Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, the Gateway Area and St. Petersburg, with a future connection to Tampa. Welch outlined the benefits of improved transportation including jobs and new development while preserving existing neighborhoods and green spaces. The Pinellas County Commission began an in depth look into the economic impact of poverty and the need for healthy communities in 2012. Staff has been working on a plan to address these challenges in an integrated and comprehensive way, Welch said. A recent report estimates that the impact of poverty in Pinellas is at least $2.5 billion annually. The goal is to provide more effective service delivery, based on collaboration, data management and preventive services, he said. This is a holistic, collaborative approach focused on measurable outcomes and community impact. Healthcare is a related area staff is working to address. Pinellas is a great community, Welch said. But for many of our citizens, healthcare is an ongoing challenge. Pinellas ranks 38 out of the states 67 counties for overall health outcomes. Poverty and lack of access to early preventative health care is a primary driver for our poor health outcomes ranking, he said. We can and must do better, for the benefit of our citizens lacking preventive healthcare and for the Pinellas taxpayers. Work on reducing poverty and associated issues is the focus of a Community Redevelopment area for south St. Petersburg, which officials believe could become a model for redevelopment in other pockets of poverty located in Pinellas. Im excited that the commission is partnering with the city of St. Petersburg to bring new tools to this important effort, Welch said. An area Welch didnt talk about in either of his other state of the county addresses was the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012, which was intended to stabilize the national flood insurance program, but has resulted in unaffordable increases in flood insurance rates. The potential impact to our citizens, businesses and local economy is substantial, Welch said of the new threat. Pinellas County has the most subsidized policies in the nation, including thousands of non-waterfront properties. Your county commission is working with community stakeholders, our legislative delegation and congressional representatives to develop sensible alternatives to stabilize the flood insurance program without having a draconian impact on our property values and economy, Welch said. He thanked Property Appraiser Pam Dubov for her work to assess and educate others about the potential effect of flood insurance reformCounty Commission Chair Ken Welch delivers his inaugural state of the county address on March 27. in Pinellas. This will be a priority for your county commission until an acceptable resolution is crafted, Welch said. Welch also thanked county staff for the work done to move the county forward during his year as commission chair. He praised the strong partnership between the commission and the countys constitutional officers, its districts and municipalities. Pinellas County works well because of the collaborative spirit between our elected officials and the active participation of our citizens, Welch said. Your participation is vital and encouraged. Welch will continue to chair the commission through the remainder of 2013 before passing on the gavel. If the commission follows tradition, Vice Chair Karen Seel will serve at the commissions helm in 2014. The State of the County message can be viewed at www.PinellasCounty.org and on PCC-TV at noon, 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekends.

Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, the concept of the organization has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The goal is to recruit 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 each for the year. At the meetings, members can nominate any local charity or nonprofit as the quarters beneficiary. Three charities will be drawn at random. Those who nominated the charity then give fiveminute presentations explaining why the organization is deserving of the collective denotation. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated to Community Action Stops Abuse or CASA, Ready for Life and Girls Inc. of Pinellas.

By major I mean software that gets a lot of publicity and so is in front of us quite a bit. These are programs like Family Tree Maker, Legacy, Roots Magic, and The Master Genealogist to name but a few. In this age of electronic genealogy they are fairly indispensable in helping us keep track of our data and our research. In addition to that software, there also are well-known websites such as FamilySearch.org, Ancestry.com, and Cyndislist. com that give us access to vast amounts of data that we can search. However, there are other sites and software programs that are perhaps not as well known, but which also can tremendously aid in our genealogy research and data organization. The following are brief explanations of but a few of those. Evernote Evernote is a piece of software that fundamentally allows you to jot notes to yourself. The notes can be tagged with labels of your choosing so you can easily find them when the notes become numerous. It also will allow you to directly make a clip of a website you are viewing so you can revisit it again by simply clicking the hotlink that was saved as a note in Evernote. The software is cloud-based so that means you can load the software on multiple devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops) and see the saved notes synchronized across all of those devices. Dropbox Dropbox is another cloud-based utility. Think of it as a storage area as opposed to a note or document generator like Evernote. It also can be loaded on multiple devices so that the documents saved in Dropbox can be synchronized and viewed across all of your devices. Dropbox has some handy features that make it easy to use for backups. The Dropbox site will even store previous versions of your documents, so if you want to retrieve a document that you changed but then thought better of, you can. If you delete a document from your Dropbox, it also can be retrieved from your account page on the Dropbox site. The things you save in both Evernote and Dropbox can be kept not only in the cloud, but also resident on your computer or other device. That means that if you are at a place where you do not have access to the Internet, you can still view and manipulate your documents and notes. What Ive described above are only the most frequently used capabilities of the two programs. You can anticipate future columns dealing with these two utilities where we will go into much more detail. Relationship Calculator If you ever get confused about the relationship between yourself and another of your ancestors, the Relationship Calculator can be of help. It is completely mouse-click driven, so no typing is necessary. For example, simply click on fathers fathers childs childs child to see that that person is your first cousin once removed. Time Lines of History If you want to get a feel for what was happening in the world during a time one of your ancestors lived, Time Lines of History will reveal it for you. You can choose a period in history already set up (for example the decade from 1811 to 1820) or specify your own timeframe. This is a good way to build an understanding of the historical and social events that influenced an ancestors life. Genealogy Calculators Genealogy Calculators is a fun page to play around on. It is a collection of various utilities that could be helpful at one time or another. There you can find a perpetual calendar, a Roman numeral converter, a cousin calculator, and age calculator, and an inflation calculator to name a few. All of the utilities mentioned here are free, or offer free versions that are more than adequate for normal usage. Of course, these are just the tip of the iceberg. Programs and website such as these abound on the Internet. I hope this introduction has spurred your interest in seeking out others on your own. The Pinellas Genealogy Society offers a class on utilities such as those described here. It is an interesting class because every time it is offered, the content changes due to new utilities becoming available. You can see when the next class (free and open to the public) is being offered by visiting the PGS website . From the home page click on Class Schedule. Check back often. If the class is not listed for the near future, it will eventually be offered.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

PETERSBURG The Florida Holocaust Museum will present a public program commemorating the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The museum is at 55 Fifth St. S. Kristallnacht Night of Broken Glass is the name given to Nov. 910, 1938, when nationwide anti-Jewish pogroms took place all over Germany and German-occupied areas. During Kristallnacht, 267 synagogues in Germany and Austria were destroyed and the windows of thousands of Jewish-owned businesses were shattered and their wares looted. The museums annual commemoration of Kristallnacht will consist of a remembrance service with a candle lighting followed by a discussion of the book, The Power of Witnessing: Reflections, Reverberations, and Traces of the Holocaust Trauma, Psychoanalysis, and the Living Mind, published by Routledge, 2013. Nancy Goodman, Ph.D., and Marilyn Meyers, Ph.D., editors and writers of the book, will present testimonial essays telling truths about the horror of the Holocaust in the very personal words of those who remember. Goodman will speak about the founding of the Yale Video Archives of Holocaust Testimonies and the dreams written about by contributors to the Power of Witnessing book whose hearts and souls were touched by the Holocaust. Meyers will speak about the opening and closing of space for recognizing and symbolizing the atrocity of the Holocaust. In the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust there was a conspiracy of silence. In the following years, up to the present, a willingness and desire to know have allowed for healing the pain and for resilience to emerge. Gail Humphries Mardirosian, Ph.D., a contributor to The Power of Witnessing, also will speak about the ways theater gives voice to the silence. Elizabeth Bartolotta will bring her beautiful voice to haunting songs of remembrance. The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The museum is dedicated to teaching the members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with the last admission 30 minutes before closing. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for college students and $8 for students 17 and younger. Active military, FHM members, USF students with identification and children age 6 and younger are admitted for free. For information, call 820-0100 or visit www.flholocaustmuseum.org.Master volunteers honored for serviceCLEARWATER More than 100 volunteers who stand up and speak up for abused and neglected children in Pinellas County were the guests of honor at a special event, sponsored by the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, at Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater Oct. 22. These volunteers were given the title of Master Guardian ad Litem. They represent a select group of highly dedicated guardian ad litem volunteers who, through years of service, have shown an outstanding expertise in child advocacy. They have gone above and far beyond what is needed in their cases to ensure that the best interests of the children that they advocate for have been met. The guest speaker at the event was Judge Raymond Gross, who spoke about his great respect and admiration for those community members who dedicate themselves tirelessly to ensure that the children who are involved in the dependency system have a voice in court proceedings. Also present were numerous guardian ad litem program staff members, who also commended the volunteers for their effective advocacy and compassion for the plight of vulnerable children in Pinellas County.

I know it is a serious issue, but sometimes I think we can overdo something, and it can have a negative effect. In the last month, my daughter has been a part of a week-long anti-bullying campaign, which included dress-up days, and a five-week program called Peacemakers from CASA, or Community Action Stops Abuse, where an instructor comes into the classroom for an hour a week and talks about bullying and other issues. The most recent effort was an hour-long music program called Didgeridoo Down Under, which talked about antibullying. You would think we have a bullying problem at my daughters school, but they dont. Its just the hot topic and a buzzword right now. I dont usually watch the evening news with my kids around, because its usually about violence and things I dont want my young kids to hear about. But the other day I had it on, and there was that horrible story about the little 12-year-old girl who committed suicide because of being bullied at school. My 9-year-old daughter stopped what she was doing. Somehow, she heard the reporter say the word suicide and knew about that story. I asked her how she knew about it. I have never talked about it, and I really didnt want her knowing about something like that, because I thought she was too young. She said they talked about it at school in her Peacemakers class. I was kind of surprised and asked her what was talked about. To my dismay, I was shocked and mad at what my daughter told me happened in this class. My daughter told me the Peacemaker instructor talked about bullying, and in her presentation, there was a fake person made out of paper that she wanted the kids to come up to and say something mean and then rip off part of the paper. Most of the kids in my daughters class did not want to say anything mean, but the Peacemaker instructor said she strongly encouraged them to come up and do it. She said they had a choice, but pretty much pressured them into doing it. My daughter was one of those kids who didnt want to do it, but ended up going up to the paper person and telling it she didnt like its new haircut. Most kids ended up saying something mean even though they didnt want to. There were two kids that absolutely didnt want to do it. At the end of the presentation, the instructor told those two kids they were the only ones who werent bullies. She gave them a reward, and the others had to write apology notes to the paper person. My daughter told me she felt terrible. She said she only did it because she felt like the instructor was a teacher, and she had to listen to her. The instructor then asked the students how they thought this made the paper doll feel when it was bullied. My daughter said the answers the kids gave were sad, mad, angry, upset and wanted to run away. The instructor said there was one more answer they were missing. This is where the word suicide came up. Something I dont think kids in fourth grade need to know. A message that was meant to be good, in this instance, was not. I ended up calling the organization that presented the program, and they told me the lesson might have been presented wrong by the instructor. I talked to the principal of my daughters school who said she would talk to the presenter and by no means should fourth graders be taught about the word suicide or influenced to do something they didnt feel was right. This was an opportunity for me as a parent to talk to my kids about what had gone on in school. I told both of my daughters that if ever they dont feel something is right, they dont have to do it, even if it is a teacher, instructor or an adult telling them to do something. As far as the word suicide, I talked to my fourth grader about it, even though I think she was too young to know about that just yet. My advice to all parents is to communicate with your kids. Ask them about their day, about their friends and whats going on in their lives. There are serious topics that need to be addressed with our kids in and out of school. We need to be careful, though, in how we address these issues.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The Tampa Bay Storytellers Guild presents Tellabration!, an evening of family-friendly stories for grownups, at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Saturday, Nov. 23, 7:30 to 9 p.m. The event is actually part of a global movement, said Ross Tarr, storyteller and guild member. Storytellers around the world participate in Tellabration! and will be sharing their art form on the same day. The first Tellabration! took place in Connecticut in 1988, organized by J.G. Pinkerton, who created the event to preserve the art of storytelling. He wanted to get communities more active and telling stories, Tarr said. The idea was to preserve family histories so future years can understand what happened in the past. Under the umbrella of the National Storytelling Network, the event slowly spread to other states each year, and in 1995, it went abroad for the first time, with Tellabration! moving to Japan. Today, the event is held in nearly every state and about 20 countries, Tarr said. The guild has hosted Tellabration! since the mids, originally held at the Pinellas Park Library. But this is only the second year it will take place at Park Station. Its a great little venue, Tarr said. A fundraiser for the Chamber, this years Tellebration! features 10 area storytellers, local to Pinellas County: Tarr, Deborah Frethem, Suzanne Nelson, Shari Layne, husband-and-wife tandem storytellers Maureen and Gene Belote, Geneva Nelson, Katie Adams, Sarah Harris (ASL), and a visit by Chicago-based storyteller Sandi Sylver. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. There also will be a silent auction.For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.pinellas parkchamber.com.

Three big bottlenose dolphins had a big fight. In every way, it was a glaring example of the psychology of life lived without walls. It was two against one: N and Riptab against DD2. DD2s alliance partner BB was not there. This was most unusual, but whether the pair took advantage of it to fight the single bull is unknown. If so, it did not appear to work. We first saw them in the distance. Thought the situation was desperate, the vista was beautiful. The sea glittered like a field of diamonds. It created a shimmering Las Vegas stage curtain against which the dolphins suddenly exhibited their most sensational aerial behavior: One dolphin leaps wildly into the sky to avoid a second one lunging out of the water beneath it, trying to ram it. We rushed over but were too late. DD2 had rocketed away to the east, leaving N and his buddy Riptab to mill around and surf a passing wave. Such behavior was out of place for the tension of the moment, and was an example of displacement behavior. In the same way, I might be really mad at you so I safely attack a sandwich. The seas quieted, but the moment would not last. Bottlenose dolphins fight in rounds like professional boxers; either they get winded quickly or just back off to catch their breath. But their fights are on-again-off-again. It is often hard to tell when the fight is over. It is not hard to tell when the conflict starts again. Round two began when DD2 rocketed back from his point of retrieval; we glimpsed something large and gray shooting past underwater. He could have stayed away but did not. The seas erupted in another round of conflict. Like most fights, Round two was mostly underwater. But you could occasionally see the dolphins circling each other, trying to arch over each other, or rolling in the water onto their backs or sides. The latter appeared to be efforts to make contact with another dolphin only with their back rather than the less impervious belly region. When N rolled and pressed against Riptab to squash DD2 between them, DD2 squirted out only to whirl around and continue circling them, vying for position. It was really surprising to see N and Riptab rush away. They left together at speed, using the classic skim behavior in which the dolphin creates a rooster off either side of the body in its haste. This time, it was DD2 who came and milled around the boat as we watched his two rivals become distant silhouettes in the diamond field. Then DD2 vanished and we awaited Round three. It was not long in coming. Curiously, N and Riptab had sprinted into the distance, turned around, came back and launched into Round three. They had acted the same way DD2 acted before Round two. Another wild bout of circling, arching and rolling commenced. Conflict is a fact of life. It is not comfortable. But there is one nice thing about it: Conflict is rare, in its natural state anyway. Constant or predictable conflict is indicative of a destructive situation that must be resolved and is not normal conflict. Because conflict is rare in the natural state, it is hard to study. Many scientists study animal conflict because people are too self-conscious to be studied; they change their behavior when scientists start taking notes! Official studies of animal conflict also are hard because you can never tell what the animals are fighting about. The best you can do is try to figure out the context in which conflict takes place. Today, this was not possible to do. The study of dolphin conflict is especially difficult because it is very hard to tell when dolphins are fighting. Fighting creates lots of splashing. The problem is that other happier behaviors, which are just as active like zesty sex and play, also create lots of splashing. All that splashing obliterates the details. I actually once devoted two years of my life to studying conflict among 13 captive bottlenose dolphins to inform field biologists so they could recognize conflict at sea and differentiate it from those other happier behaviors. I did not know at the time that I would be the field biologist that my study would inform. The feature that best identifies dolphin conflict is the tail whip. The tail whip looks like a dolphin doing a headstand with the back half of his body out of the water and vertical. Clear of the water, the tail is then punched wildly sideways at anyone who is near. DD2, N and Riptab only did fake tail whips like a guy who clenches his fist without throwing the punch. But that did not stop Round 3 from happening. It ended when N and Riptab rushed away again as before, skimming to the south as fast as they could. Again, DD2 swung by the boat and submerged like dolphins do. We waited for Round 4. But the dolphins were totally gone and we never saw them again. In a life without walls, they could take their fight wherever it led them. And they did.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On Nov. 4, the 14-year-old victim disclosed to detectives that the female suspect arranged for her to engage in sexual activity with an adult male for money. The victim told detectives that on Oct. 25, the female suspect told her she was having a male visitor come to her home. The victim was to have sex with him and collect money from him when they were done. Through their investigation, the two suspects were identified, as 60-year-old Wanda Ann Ringgo, aka, Wanda Ann Taylor of Largo and Mohand Rashid, 25, of St. Petersburg. On Nov. 6, a search warrant was obtained and was served at Ringgos residence on Nov. 7. Both suspects agreed to meet with detectives at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo, Nov. 7. Rashid reportedly admitted his involvement with the allegations and was arrested and charged with one count of lewd and lascivious battery. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail Nov. 8 on $10,000 surety bond. Ringgo was not cooperative with detectives during the interview, according to the report from the Sheriffs Office. Ringgo was arrested and charged with one count of human trafficking involving a minor under 15 years of age. She is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail.Fire displaces family of four, three catsREDINGTON SHORES Seminole Fire Rescue and Pinellas Suncoast Fire Rescue responded to a vehicle fire in the carport at 17729 First St. East in Redington Shores Nov. 7.

The familys three cats also got out without injury. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but preliminary reports indicate that it could have started in the engine compartment of the familys late model Trailblazer, which was destroyed in the fire. The home also sustained significant damage to the walls as well as smoke damage.PCSO seeks armed robber and carjackerLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriffs Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating an armed robbery and armed carjacking suspect(s) who attempted to steal a purse and money from one victim and stole a vehicle from a second victim Nov. 7 in the Lealman area. According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 7, about 6:30 p.m., the first victim was walking in the area of 38th Street North and 46th Avenue North when the suspect approached her from behind. The suspect began to yell at the victim, demanded money and implied he had a gun. The victim began to open her cell phone and the suspect fled on foot toward 29th Street North. Two hours later, at approximately 8:30 p.m. the second victim was exiting the Oleys Food Mart, 3891 46th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. The victim was entering her vehicle when the suspect approached her car. The suspect began to yell at the victim then swung his arm back, striking the victim in the face with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim exited the vehicle and the suspect entered the drivers seat and began driving westbound at 46th Avenue North. The vehicle is described as a four-door Kia Rio, silver in color with a Texas license plate that reads BJG5000. The suspect in the first incident is described as a black male, approximate age 15 to 18, 5-foot, fiveinches or taller, thin build, wearing a white tank top, dark colored pants and a brimmed hat worn backwards. The suspect in the second incident is described as a black male, approximate age 20 to 23, 5-foot, 10inches tall, medium build, wearing a white tank top and possibly a brimmed hat. Due to the similarities of each suspect description and the time frame of each occurrence, detectives believe the suspect in both incidents may be one and the same. Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to contact Detective J. Loftus of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestop persofpinellas.org.

Detectives suspect there may be other victims and ask anyone with information to contact the Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the crime was reported to the Sheriffs Office Aug. 16, after adult relatives of one of the victims found inappropriate text messages on the girls phone. Detectives said the messages included solicitation for nude photos as well as sexually explicit conversations. Detectives began investigating and determined that during the latter part of this summer the girls were frequenting the bouncy house and inflatable slides on Clearwater Beach. The suspect, identified as Leonardo Lopez-Navarro, 33, befriended the girls and allowed them to go on the slides and bouncy house without paying. Detectives further determined that inappropriate physical contact took place at that location between the suspect and the victims. On Nov. 6, detectives obtained a warrant and arrested Lopez-Navarro. During the interview, he reportedly admitted that he had shared his phone number with various juveniles. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $100,000. Detectives suspect there may be other victims and request that anyone with information that may assist in this investigation to call Detective Holly Tsanakaliotis of the Special Victims Unit at 727-582-6200.

Pinellas County Commissioners approved, 51, staffs ranking of firms to implement a Property Assessment Clean Energy program for commercial property countywide. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. Commission Chair Ken Welch was absent. A motion to include residential property in the program was defeated, 4-2, with all but Commissioners Susan Latvala and Charlie Justice voting no. Pinellas Countys Purchasing Department released a Request for Proposal Aug. 5, on request of the commission, to find a provider to implement a PACE program to help property owners in need of financing for wind resistance, energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements. The state legislature authorized the program, which was implemented in 2010, to allow the use of a special assessment, which becomes part of the property tax bill, for certain improvements to residential, commercial and industrial property. The billing is attractive to financers due to the means of collection property tax bill and that PACE liens get priority over mortgage payments due. However, two government loan programs, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, refuse to finance homes that are part of the PACE program and may file a lawsuit against the program. Property owners, using the PACE program, have an advantage of potentially attractive interest rates, and the ability to pay off the loan through on-going assessments on property tax bills. According to a staff report, the PACE program is intended to stimulate economic activity in a variety of sectors, including alternative energy, energy conservation, building materials and associated products. Commissioners John Morroni and Roche objected to including residential properties in the program. They have concerns that the program may do more harm than good to the real estate market. Morroni suggested starting with commercial properties as a trial and perhaps expanding into residential in the future. Roche agreed, but prefers to let the free market provide financing. Im concerned about the fragility of the real estate market, Roche said. Hes also uncomfortable using the propertytax process as guarantee for the loan payments. That changes the role of government, he said. Commissioner Janet Long spoke in favor of an open market instead of picking one vendor to run the PACE program. However, other commissioners believe it would be less confusing to the public to have one vendor at least in the beginning. All did agree with Long that a free market could create a more competitive environment and lower interest rates. Commissioner Karen Seel expressed concern that the countys involvement would mean the public would seek help from the county if the workmanship on projects proved unacceptable. County Attorney Jim Bennett said the only tie Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala favors implementing the Property Assessment Clean Energy program for commercial and residential property countywide. She is responsible for first bringing the program to the commissions attention soon after it was approved by the state legislature. See PACE, page 10A

The contract would be between the property owners with the vendor, he said. The county would have no liability for workmanship, he said. The county is just a financial tool, he added. County Administrator Bob LaSala said staff would ensure that the vendor understood it was responsible for making sure its clients knew that PACE was not a county program. Latvala and Justice said the program could be a benefit to the real estate market by allowing people to make improvements to the safety of their homes. In addition, the state legislature is reportedly considering an amendment to the program that could assist people needing to make improvements to lower their flood insurance rates. In the end, commissioners approved staffs ranking of firms and directed staff to negotiate a contract with the No. 1 ranked firm Ygrene Energy Fund Florida to provide a PACE program for a countywide program for commercial properties only. The commission also asked that the contract include a mechanism for a periodic review.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner John Morroni, a former Realtor, is concerned that the Property Assessment Clean Energy program could hurt the countys real estate market.

INSTALLED FREE! 111413 By BRIAN GOFFLARGO Dozens of people showed up at Indian Rocks Christian School Nov. 7 to see and pay their respects to the American Veterans Traveling Tribute and kickoff a busy Veterans Days weekend at the school. The wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., and contains 58,286 names of veterans who died as a result of the war in Vietnam. Among those who arrived early was Mike Solava of Seminole. He was there with his children, 11-year-old Madison and 9-year-old Michael. He said it was important that his children see this. I saw the monument in Washington and I wanted to show the kids what it was all about, he said. It is very important that they see what our family has done. Solava located the name of his uncle, David Knox of Dalton, Ill., who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. History is important for us to know, because if we dont know it, were going to repeat it, he said. With that, they moved into the fellowship hall for the formal ceremonies opening up the wall exhibit and the weekend of tribute to veterans. The event began with the schools high school choir singing the national anthem and America the Beautiful. The guest speaker was Largo resident Master Sgt. Ben Pigsley, who retired after a 21-year career in the Army. He served in tours all over Europe as well as Desert Storm and in Iraq. His was an emotional speech. He broke down several times as he related what life was like serving in the armed forces. When I hear about someone getting killed in the service of our country, I think about a child who is going to have to grow up without a parent, or a parent who has lost a child, he said. We have to take responsibility for those sacrifices and honor all men and women who serve. Pigsley said there are three reasons why most people volunteer to join the armed forces and serve their country. The first one is that the person is patriotic and wants to make a difference, he said. Second is that the person wants to make a life change after things havent worked out quite the way they had hoped. And third is economic: they join to get work. He said he joined because of a combination of reasons No. 2 and 3. I wanted to make a life change, and I needed a job. Were all born selfish, he said. But he said not long after a young person joins the military, a change takes place. Something begins to happen quickly. It begins the first day of boot camp when you get your hair cut off, so everybody looks the same. You get a uniform, and everybody dresses the same. Then, you are told how to stand and walk and speak and even with that, you are the worst example of a soldier ever, according to your sergeant, he said laughing. He said as a soldier, you soon learn that you as an individual will never be successful until the entire group is successful. You learn it isnt about you. You learn that it is service before self, he said. Then there came a lesson on what it is like to be the family of a parent serving in the military. Emily Speicher, a senior at Indian Rocks Christian School, told the gathering what it is like growing up with a father who is always away. Her dad is currently serving in Afghanistan. I miss my dad at most of the important family events, she said. For example, he wasnt here to help me celebrate when I got my drivers license. He wasnt here at homecoming and proms. No daughterdaddy pictures just my mom and me. He missed all of my marching band competitions. And hes not here tonight to tear up listening to me speak. His little girl is growing up. Speicher said she wasnt complaining, just the opposite. She quoted scripture on the importance of serving. If God came on this earth to serve us, then surely we should too, she said. Service is about giving of yourself for someone else. We all have something we can give. Were all different, but you should do with what you have. She said serving isnt always a sacrifice. Serving is not about me. It is about helping someone else, and there is a reward in doing that. We should look for the small everyday things where we can help and make a difference, she said. Dave Turngren, a deacon at Indian Rocks Baptist Church, was responsible for organizing the event and bringing the wall to the school. He said he did it so the children at the school would have the opportunity to see the sacrifice and potential sacrifice of serving our country. To that end there was a prominent display honoring two graduates of Indian Rocks Christian School who were killed while serving in Afghanistan. Cpl. Frank Gross and Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton were friends who were killed within a year of one another in Afghanistan. Both graduated from the school, in 2003 and 2004, respectively. Gross was killed in 2011 and Sitton in 2012. Their parents and families sat in the front row throughout the ceremonies. The event ended with a performance by the schools Regiment band, but the final word went to Pigsley, who during his speech told of an encounter he had with a Vietnam veteran many years ago. My children were still very young, and I had just come back from overseas, he said. There was an event honoring all veterans at the old Tampa Stadium, so I put on my best uniform and my medals, and I went over there. On his way to the stadium, an older man with an old green jacket confronted him. The jacket displayed his rank and other insignia indicating that he was a Vietnam veteran. He grabbed my hand and thanked me for my service, Pigsley said. I hardly knew what to say, so I thanked him for his service. As we parted, I was thinking how it must have been for him coming back after the Vietnam War. I was moved by the fact that he didnt worry about how he was treated; he was worrying about how I was treated. As Pigsley ended his speech with those words and a private, quiet moment of tears, he received a standing ovation thanking him for his service. The wall was located in the fellowship center of First Baptist Church Indian Rocks through Veterans Day. For more information about the traveling tribute, visit www.avtt.org.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COMNO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerWith November upon us, we enjoy the beautiful fall colors, trips to fruit stands to shop for our favorite apples, and then most importantly, the Thanksgiving holiday, with warm thoughts of spending this day with family and friends. On Thanksgiving Day, many of us are reminded of the blessings of our families and the many treasured memories that will always will be part of our lives. We look forward to this day of sharing a wonderful meal and visiting with family, creating yet another great memory. Yet there are those in our senior population, who may not look forward to this day for a number of reasons. They may live alone with families in other states, unable to come for a visit or often many seniors are not physically able to travel away from home. It can be a lonely time with feelings that no one in their world views them as valuable or worth listening to. Take a moment and reflect on what you may possibly do to fully express the meaning of Thanksgiving throughout the year. Can you think of a way to free-up a couple of hours each week so that you can give that time to someone you know who is in need of company? Everyone has a story and the longer you live, the more stories you have to share. Invite a senior you know who lives alone to your table on this special holiday. Listen to their stories and know in your heart that they will go home thankful for the memory you helped create for them. The true meaning of Thanksgiving should not end after a prayer or a few shared moments of thanks. Thanksgiving consists of two special words, thanks and giving. Thanksgiving 2014, let us all try to set some time aside for a senior who could use our attention. The joy and the caring you provide will leave a lasting touch on a heart yearning for someone to take an interest in them, and listen to their stories as each of us has a life story. Pull up a chair and just listen, then feel fulfilled with the gift you have given. 111413Every Life has a StoryFor every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.

They had a blast dressing up for Halloween, and they are this months Pet of the Month winners. Their human mommy and daddy are Linda and Bob Kubilius of Clearwater Beach. They rescued Gracie Lou from a bad situation when she was 4 months old. She was very sick with kennel cough and underweight, and Linda nursed her back to health. Now, these sweet little clowns love to join their parents for walks on the beach. They are always playing, and if there is not a toy nearby, then they love when their mom throws their special flipper floppies to them. They also have their own lounge chairs because Teddy Bear is too small to jump up onto the couch. For being only 8 pounds, Teddy Bear can sure snore and is always waking up the rest of the family. However, they are healthy pups, with their favorite treats being blueberries, bananas and carrots. As the Pet of the Month winners, they won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park, but they have kindly donated their prize to the Humane Society of Pinellas.

On the average, age 7 equates to 55-65 human years. Our pets bodies and organs begin aging at a more rapid rate once they become a senior at 7. What does this mean for your pet? As he or she ages, we can see signs at home that clue us in to decreasing function of his or her body systems. Drinking more water, and in turn urinating more, can be our only sign of diabetes, kidney insufficiency/failure, or endocrine (hormone) disease. Reluctance to exercise may be the result of arthritis or heart disease. Changes in appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, and sneezing can be indicative of various disease processes that involve the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs. Many of these changes happen over time and are sometimes difficult to recognize because we see our pets everyday. Identifying these signs early and bringing your pet in for a physical exam leads to a greater chance of early diagnosis and treatment. Most of our pets have been generally healthy in their younger years and have never needed a full biochemical profile, complete blood count (CBC), thyroid hormone level, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, radiographs, or any other diagnostic procedure apart from yearly heartworm testing and intestinal parasite screening. The physical exam performed yearly can provide a great deal of information; however, without the benefit of biochemical profiles and other diagnostic tests, it is difficult to assess how well the internal organs are functioning. In many cases, performing these tests alert us to problems that are just beginning and early diagnosis leads to early treatment. Early detection, and early treatment, can extend your pets longevity and quality of life. The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Animal Hospital of Dunedin recommends yearly screening of your senior pet. Your veterinarian will make recommendations for your pet according to the physical exam findings. At the Animal Hospital of Dunedin, our goal for our patients in their golden years is to prolong life with quality.Dr. Heather Manfredi, D.V.M., is a veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, November 14, 2013For years, Florida has relied on tourism as a major source of revenue, but in order for the state to continue economic growth, it must invest in other key industries as well. The Florida Legislature has recognized the importance of an efficient logistics network to job creation, retention, and the recruitment of companies from other states and around the globe by increasing investment in Florida ports and other infrastructures. These improved facilities have enhanced Floridas global competitiveness, provided jobs to thousands of Floridians and improved our international trade and tourism. Investments in Floridas infrastructure also provide a steady stream of local, state, and federal government revenues. Florida is home to 15 seaports that handle about 40 percent of total U.S. exports, welcome the largest number of cruise passengers in the world, and employ more than 680,000 Floridians. These jobs generate $26.1 billion in personal income, produce $96.6 billion in direct business revenue, and contribute to more than $2.4 billion in local and state taxes. The direct economic impact of ports will be even greater if Florida capitalizes on opportunities for growth. The growing population in Florida and in the southeast mega-regions, the latter which currently account for more than one-third of the U.S. population, is expected to increase the demand for goods entering Florida. Growth of international markets will add to that demand, especially those located in the Latin American region. Trade with Latin America and the Caribbean is of utmost importance for Florida, as seven of its top 10 trading partners have been from this region in recent years. Florida should expect higher seaport traffic in the coming years, if and only if the right investments are made in order to maintain seaport competitiveness. While several of our ports are already expanding and improving their facilities, it is important for Florida seaports and logistics centers to work together toward a statewide development vision rather than a local or regional one. A statewide vision would avoid connectivity issues, redundancies, and inefficiencies in the system. Several reports have called for this vision, including The Florida Department of Transportation 2060 Transportation Plan and the Florida Chamber Foundations Florida Trade and Logistics Study. While Florida has the chance to benefit from changing international landscapes and further domestic investment, we should be aware of how other states are developing their seaports and intermodal systems. This is particularly true for states in the southeastern region that have successfully increased their exports at a high growth rate for the past years. For example, Louisiana is currently experiencing increases that may well position them at a higher ranking than Florida in the near future. The Florida seaport industry continues to grow, as shown by the increase in sea and coastal transportation jobs since the end of the recession. In order to maintain this growth and help Florida remain a world trade hub, policy makers should continue to appropriate the necessary resources to this industry, as our ports ability to efficiently handle freight will determine if Florida will take a larger share of both domestic and international trade, however, doing so will require the right investment and careful planning. While looking for opportunities to further diversify Floridas economy and make the Sunshine State a better place to live, work and play, state leaders should continue to support Florida ports.Dominic M. Calabro is President and Chief Executive Officer of Florida TaxWatch, a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan government watchdog and research institute for taxpayers.What do Tuesdays resounding re-election of Republican Chris Christie as governor of Democrat-friendly New Jersey and the excruciating defeat of tea party stalwart and gubernatorial wannabe Ken Cuccinelli in once reliably Republican Virginia say about Republican chances of retaking the White House in 2016? Christie won by 22 points after badmouthing the federal government shutdown, which these days makes him a moderate. Now some pundits are wondering out loud whether Christie is the 2016 front-runner. In losing to oily Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Cuccinelli drove another nail in the tea party coffin. I wouldnt declare Christie the GOP frontrunner. As Ethics and Public Policy Center senior fellow Henry Olsen opined, Christie has a unique outsize appeal that works in New Jersey but will not necessarily translate to the national stage. But sometimes the conventional wisdom is right. Here are the lessons I take away from the voters verdicts: The tea party strategy of bucking the party establishment is a loser. Cuccinelli supporters are venting against the GOP establishment for not giving more money to their man when polls showed that McAuliffes lead was dwindling because of the glitch-rich Obamacare rollout. Knowing that Christie was going to win that race without their help, why would they not help Cuccinelli more? Tea Party Express head Amy Kremer complained to The Washington Times. She has a point, but she ignores the laws of cause and effect. In maneuvering the nomination process from a primary election to a convention, the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a biting none-of-the-above endorsement, Cuccinelli engaged in an expression of raw power (that) would have delighted sachems of Tammany Hall. Virginia does not welcome an in-your-face governor. Tea partyers boast that the GOP cannot win without them. But guess what. They cannot win without the establishment, either. Successful candidates appeal to those outside their base. During his acceptance speech, Christie boasted that he won because he campaigned outside the GOP base. He talked about the need to listen to voters a novel concept. In his concession speech, Cuccinelli talked to dead people. We fought for the principles that were first articulated for the whole world by Virginians, Cuccinelli told his supporters. He mentioned George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Were New Jersey, Christie said. We fight, but for whats important. Cuccinelli? He told his supporters, We home-school. There is a right way and a wrong way to oppose abortion rights. To talk to all America, you have to start with the proposition that we are happy that women have a different role in life and control over their bodies, Olsen noted. We are a pro-life party, Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling told The New York Times, but if were going to be the party of fetal ultrasounds, were going to have a problem. Christie opposes abortion rights. He vetoed Planned Parenthood funding more than once. The difference is that Christie talks as if he knows governing is his most important mission. There are two kinds of Republicans: those who think Democrats are the big problem with Washington and those who blame other Republicans. From opposing corners, Cuccinelli and Christie fall into the latter category. Cuccinellis tea party shut down the federal government in a failed effort to defund Obamacare. That stunt boomeranged and cost Cuccinelli votes from angry families of furloughed federal workers. Sometimes I feel like our party cares more about winning the argument than they care about winning elections, Christie told CNN. Hes right. The shutdown was a bust. But if Christie wants to win in 2016, he shouldnt lecture the base. If lectures won elections, Cuccinelli would be governor-elect.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

Its unlikely well see an end to it in our lifetimes. Heres what we may look forward to in years to come. WASHINGTON, D.C. June 20, 2022. The National Rifle Association today announced complete control of almost half of Congress. An NRA spokesman said, We now can state that forty-four of the Senates 100 members and 238 of U.S. representatives have pledged their absolute support for all NRA policies and goals. This will guarantee that no new guncontrol laws will be adopted during the current session of Congress, and that several existing anti-NRA laws will be repealed. The spokesman added, The loyalty of these pro-NRA legislators was obtained without a single bribe being extended or accepted by these gallant Second Amendment defenders. We simply made them an offer they couldnt refuse. If they agreed to become a willing servant of the NRA, we would give them our full backing for the remainder of their political lives. If, on the other hand, they chose to remain independent, we would oppose them with a level of enthusiasm that would make them wish they had been born in Bangladesh. This arrangement now referred to as the Bangladesh Deal almost always brings the Congresspersons around to our way of thinking. WASHINGTON, D.C. Feb. 14, 2018. The Pew Research Center says that most Americans fully expect there will be at least one shooting incident per week at a college, public school or shopping mall. It seems to have become part of the American Way of Life, said Lillian Armstrong, a Pew vice president. We view this attitude as neither pessimistic or optimistic. During the past decade or so, shootings in public places have become so common that anyone with a grain of sense has concluded that most citizens are in danger the moment they open their front door and step outside. Ms. Armstrong said, Whats disturbing is the fact that millions of Americans no longer are greatly disturbed by all the gunfire and death that surround us. Our media studies show that, unless the shooting occurs within a two-mile radius of their homes, the average citizen spends less than seven seconds viewing a TV report or reading a news account of the gunfire, before passing on to other news items. Like cellphones or football, shootings have become an accepted part of our culture. One interviewee summed up Americans feelings with this remark: What do you expect, when most people you pass on the street are carrying at least one weapon? A firearm is much like your sex drive: use it or lose it. Ms. Armstrong said. EUGENE, Ore. Sept. 22, 2016. A sixthgrade student at the Lincoln Elementary School has been expelled for using the word rifle in an essay written for a composition class. The schools principal, Todd Farmhorst, told local news media that the expulsion of the boy identified only as Joey was an expression of the schools zero-tolerance policy with regard to firearms. Other schools may pussy-foot around when it comes to guns, but Lincoln Elementary is not one of them, he said. He added, We began by prohibiting the possession of any sort of weapon by students. Later we added pencils and pens to the list, along with perfume or cologne that might be sprayed into a victims face during an attack. Our next step was to cleanse our schools library of all books with the words gun, bomb, shoot, stab, or pistol in a books title. Students were forbidden to use those and other incendiary terms in their daily speech while attending classes. Finally, we cracked down on any written materials that contained words referring to guns, explosives or violence of any kind. The principal said, Joeys essay told about a hunting trip his father had taken ten years ago. He could have used a synonym for rifle, but he chose not to. Now he must pay the price. If I could, I would expel any student who even thought about guns. An unexpected result of Principal Farmhorsts actions was a false report that a serial killer carrying six kinds of firearms and an assortment of hand grenades had invaded the school. Police from Eugene and five nearby communities surrounded the school, ordered a lockdown, and summoned attack helicopters to the scene. Before the mistaken report was cleared up, the noise and confusion had scared the school children out of a years growth, according to one parent, who added, But it was worth it, to keep our kiddies safe from these gun nuts.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Seaports are a good investmentOther viewsThe Lakeland Ledger Nov. 7Medicaid Expansion: Florida should fill health gapFlorida is losing $55 billion in federal funding over 10 years because of its failure to expand Medicaid. The money would have covered the entire cost of the expansion for three years and 90 percent subsequently. Conservative lawmakers were worried about having to pay more later, so they decided that no one gets covered by the expansion now. At least 21 states have taken the money, including several with Republican-controlled statehouses. The politics that have led to the states failure to act will prove costly to its citizens and hospitals. The solution is for Florida to do the math and swallow the extreme, anti-Washington ideology and accept the $55 billion in federal funding to expand Medicaid.The Miami Herald Nov. 9Florida governors race: All signs point to rough ride aheadAlmost as soon as former Gov. Charlie Crist made his expected announcement last week that he intends to run for his old seat in 2014, negative ads against him started popping up on television. Welcome to Election Year 2014. Its going to be a rough and mud-spattered ride. By now, most voters are resigned to the sad reality that negative campaigns are a driving force in most races. This time around its starting far earlier than usual, with the promise of lots more to come.Florida Today Nov. 8Hazing and other NFL failuresNot long ago, NFL coaches routinely rushed injured players back onto the field before they were ready. Coaches also ran their teams like despots, with their ears closed to player concerns. Nowadays, things are a bit different. Sensitive to its image and the possibility of litigation, the league requires teams to treat injuries, particularly concussions, much more seriously. And coaching styles have evolved away from the General Patton-like model. But if coaches have changed with the times, the locker rooms they rule havent changed much since players wore leather helmets. The mess in Miami, where Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team after being subjected to epithets and other abuse from fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, exposes how destructive outdated player rituals can be.

The finalists were selected from a group of 79 nominees. Finalists were chosen in three categories: direct involvement with students (employee spends 75 percent or more of his/her work hours in direct contact with students); indirect involvement with students (employee spends less than 25 percent of his/her work hours in direct contact with students); and limited involvement with students (employee spends little or none of his/her work hours in direct contact with students).

Early Learning Coalition changes leadership CLEARWATER The board of directors for the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County Inc. recently decided to terminate the employment of the organizations chief executive officer, Janet Chapman, during a special meeting on Oct. 23. Chapman led the nonprofit for 12 years, when the organization was formerly known as the Pinellas County School Readiness Coalition. Following reports of a funding surplus, the board began an internal investigation on leadership practices and organizational morale which included feedback from coalition employees. The board carefully reviewed the reports and employee concerns when making our decision, said Julie Daniels in a press release. Daniels is the board chair. We did not come to this decision lightly as it weighed heavily on my mind as well as many other board members. Ultimately change in leadership was necessary in order to move the coalition in a new direction. The board of directors has followed the coalitions succession plan and appointed Lindsay Carson, deputy CEO, as the interim CEO. The coalitions executive committee will conduct a thorough search for a permanent replacement. We are working toward strengthening relationships in the community with our partner agencies, early education providers and families, said Carson. Our dedicated team remains committed to supporting families and ensuring children have access to early care and education services. The coalitions School Readiness Scholarship program is currently at full enrollment with 6,161 children. In addition, the Voluntary Prekindergarten program has 5,310 children in care. The Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County Inc. is one of 30 Coalitions in Florida. It works to ensure that programs and services are available to assist young children during their formative years. Floridas VPK program is free for all children who are 4 years old. School Readiness Scholarships provides assistance for low-income working families by paying a portion of the childcare costs on a sliding fee scale.

PETERSBURG A workshop on entrepreneurship after 50 will be presented Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7, at Eckerd Colleges Lewis House Executive Education Center, 4200 54th Ave. S. The workshop, entitled Dont Retire from Your Life: Explore Encore Entrepreneurship and Renew, Re-imagine and Unleash You, will be conducted by a team of nationally recognized thought leaders on senior entrepreneurship. It is estimated that 70 percent of all baby boomers expect to work in some capacity after they retire, indicating the nation has a significant pool of aging human capital that will be exploring an entrepreneurial third age. While media attention on entrepreneurial activity in the United States has been focused on millennial generation, 20-something techies, the reality is that more than 40 percent of all start-ups in America are by adults over 45 years of age. The cost to attend the workshop is $349. There is no minimum required education level to participate. Led by Cheryl Kiser, executive director of Babson Colleges Social Innovation Lab, and Elizabeth Isele, the co-founder and CEO of SeniorEntrepreneurshipWorks.com, the two-day eProvStudio workshop will introduce participants to Entrepreneurial Thought & Action, a dynamic methodology created by and taught daily at Babson College, the topranked school in the world in entrepreneurship education.

Using elaborate camera movements, a dense soundscape, intricate production design and spectacular locations, Faust conjures up a unique and phantasmagoric vision of the Faustian legend. Faust (Johannes Zeiler) is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment, but becomes obsessed with the lovely Margarete (Isolda Dychauk) and eventually sells his soul to the Devil (Anton Adasinsky), also known as the Moneylender, so that he may possess her. Comic, cosmic, painterly and stunningly beautiful scenes abound as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey that ends in Hell itself. The story of Faust is one of the most popular in western literature.NebraskaGenre: Drama Cast: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, Stacy Keach, June Squibb and Bob Odenkirk Director: Alexander Payne Rated: R After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks hes struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune.

OPENING, from page 1BST. PETERSBURG A conversation with Christopher Still will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. This Collectors Circle Lecture, sponsored by Northern Trust, is free and open to the public. Still is a quintessential Florida artist, as he paints about the state he loves. The conversation will offer a rare glimpse into his inspiration and work. A native of the Tampa Bay area, Still received a full scholarship through a national competition to attend the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he received his bachelors degree in fine arts. While there, he was recognized for outstanding accomplishment in painting and received the Pennsylvania Governors Award for fine art. He also took courses in human anatomy at Jefferson Medical School and completed an apprenticeship in Florence, Italy. Still returned to Tampa Bay in 1986 and has a studio in Tarpon Springs. He is represented in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Florida Governors Mansion, and the Polk Museum of Art, among others. His painting, Orchids (1991), which seems to burst from the frame, is part of the MFA collection. His work has been part of exhibitions at museums around the state and across the country. His commissions have encompassed paintings for St. Petersburg City Hall, 10 murals for Floridas House of Representatives, and the official portrait of legendary Gov. Lawton Childs. He also created a largescale painting and sculpture for the Tampa International Airport and the 25th anniversary painting for Ruth Eckerd Hall. In 2010, he was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame at 49, the youngest ever to receive this distinction.
